After covering some of the world's most dangerous conflicts, celebrated foreign correspondent Fergal Keane undertook a journey through Britain for the BBC. The result is Keane at his very best; passionate, often angry, a superb teller of personal stories.

Travelling the country which, despite being his birthplace, he had only recently started to live in, he found a surprising and little-known world of poverty and alienation. Here are the small voices usually lost amid the din of national affairs: Fiona, a young heroin addict who sold her body and stole to supoort her habit; ordinary Protestant and Catholic families living together in uneasy peace at the western edge of the country; a farming family in South Wales, their livelihood and community slowly dying; the worried workers of a threatened Scottish shipyard employing over a thousand men, a shipyard up for sale at little more than the price of a large London house.

Unflinching, sometimes shocking, but always fascinating, these stories are also uplifting testaments to the extraordinary resilience of the human spirit.
