Nick Robinson asks if vested interests dominate our democracy and explores why so many in Britain now feel ignored and alienated from politics.

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 two, Nick asks if vested interests dominate our democracy and explores why so many in Britain now feel ignored and alienated from politics.
