When it comes to understanding a country, there is nothing like an insider's view.

A nation's character - its fears, hopes and obsessions - are all reflected in the way a country reports itself to its own people.

My Country on BBC World News taps into this rich vein by showcasing documentaries made by local film-makers about their own patch.

We'll include films about social issues, politics, current affairs investigations and observational documentaries.

No one film can ever give a complete picture of a country but we hope that they'll all offer a fresh, revealing and surprising perspective on the nation concerned.

Recently My Country has travelled to Poland, Afghanistan, Italy, Australia, South Africa, Brazil, Greece, Nigeria and France. We'll be featuring Singapore in July.
