For once, and as part of FOOC's sixtieth birthday celebrations, the programme's handed over to home correspondents and the stories they have to tell about the UK today. The growth in Scottish nationalism is explored; we find out how important listening will be as the inquiry into child sex abuse in this country prepares to get underway; we travel to one of the most picturesque villages in England to hear concerns about the increasing cost of housing in rural areas; with the power-sharing government in Belfast close to collapse, we are told of the continuing tensions in both Republican and Unionist communities and we find out what effect the extraordinary political developments of recent days will have on the party political conference season, which is about to begin.
In a time where we're all threatened by a rhetoric of hate from the people in power; A Gay And A NonGay challenges many of our differences head on and promises that no matter who you are, or what you're into (Bruce Springsteen or Britney), love is love and gay and nongays can be friends.
