What is required to create a society based on a shared sense of belonging? Douglas Alexander explores the power of stories and asks why we have run out of tales that bind.

What is required to create a society based on a shared sense of belonging? Former Cabinet minister Douglas Alexander explores the power of stories - in politics and in fiction - to bind diverse communities together. He asks what a new national story might look like and what might stand in the way of its telling. Does the huge array of media outlets mean a shared story is difficult to hear? Are our politicians up for the task? And if we don't reduce inequality will any story - no matter how compelling - fall on deaf ears?
