The Editors: Is London's success causing the UK a problem?

A new series offers some of the BBC's most senior journalists the chance to discuss some of the burning issues of the day.

The BBC's Economics Editor, Stephanie Flanders, visits London, Birmingham and Manchester and discovers wide discrepancies between the capital's economy and the rest of the country.

She says London's ebullient economy is subsidising other parts of the country but there is a lot of resentment in other big provincial cities.

Watch The Editors on BBC One at 23:15 GMT on Monday, 25 March (23:45 GMT in Northern Ireland) or catch it on the iPlayer for seven days afterwards (UK users only).
