Is it possible for countries to protect themselves from acts of terror - and if so, how?

Following the bombing of a pop concert in Manchester, we explore whether it is possible for countries to protect themselves from acts of terror - and if so, how? This issue is discussed with eminent British politicians - as the country heads towards a General Election. What drives people to commit such atrocities? What should Governments do to prevent them?

Jonathan Dimbleby and a panel of leading politicians and thinkers debate questions from around the world in London's Broadcasting House. The panel includes: Lord Kinnock, former leader of the Labour Party, Lord Howard, former leader of the Conservative party, Lord Campbell, former leader of the Liberal Democrats, Susan Glasser, founding editor of Politico and Daniela Schwarzer of the German Council on Foreign Relations.
