What are the new bonds of belonging that are affecting our political debate today? Former Cabinet minister Douglas Alexander, explores the durability of local ties and national identities. In Cardiff he meets members of one of this country's most long established African communities - Somalis who first came here as seamen hauling Welsh coal across the Empire. What gives them a sense of security and a sense of place? And he looks at how referendums shake up a sense of who we are and who we belong to.
