Is our democracy working, and do we actually want as much democracy as we have? BBC political editor Nick Robinson quizzes senior politicians, activists and the public to find out.

Is our democracy working? Today there's a real sense of our traditional democratic system fracturing - but is this because it's failing, or is it because it's doing exactly what we want it to?
In 'Can Democracy Work?', the BBC's Political Editor Nick Robinson questions top politicians, those seeking power around the UK and direct action campaigners, as well as testing public opinion, to find out what we really want from our democracy and whether it can deliver.
In episode one, Nick examines whether we actually want as much democracy as we have.
Producer: Jonathan Brunert.
