As the dust settles on America's most controversial election, BBC Radio 4 asks five writers to give their view of where America goes now.

In this programme, the philosopher John Gray argues that apocalyptic forebodings that a Trump presidency is bound to be a catastrophe are exaggerated.

History has simply moved on, he says, presenting new opportunities along with some familiar dangers.
