In the latest programme of this new monthly series, Mishal Husain introduces dispatches from writers and journalists around the United Kingdom that reflect the range of contemporary life in the country.

Among the contributions this month: Peter Taylor on why Britain has so far not suffered an attack like the recent ones in Paris, Brussels - and now Nice; Ian McMillan asks why we talk to things that can't answer back; Sarah Oliver muses on life as the wife of an infantry officer still being posted to Afghanistan; Stephen Smith meets the creator of a great pageant in Bishop Auckland which charts British history from the Romans to the Second World War and Mark Cooper-Jones tells us about life as a supply teacher.

Producer Simon Coates.
