The Country vs the City

Political correspondent Chris Mason mulls over the divide between city and country life.
How do we bridge the divide between multicultural cities, and what is perceived as the slower, more conservative, countryside?  Political correspondent Chris Mason was brought up in the Yorkshire Dales, which he has now exchanged for a life in London. Here he travels from city to country and back, exploring the tensions and political trends at work in each. He challenges a few stereotypes as well, finding a sense of community in a London borough that some people in the countryside feel has been lost.
