01The Young Devolutionaries2013093020140101 (RS)

In 1998 and 1999 Northern Ireland, Wales and Scotland voted for devolution. In this series nine young people from the devolved nations come together at the Edinburgh Festival of Politics to share their experiences of the new UK, and to reveal their vision of the future.

They are the generation who have grown up under devolution and a vote for Scottish independence is just around the corner. Devolution has cost a lot of money, and created a new kind of politician. But has it created a new politics and how do they feel about their national identity? Where do they fit in? What sets them apart?

Radio 4 brought together nine young people from the devolved nations who all had something to say. With an expert on Social Inclusive Art, Jeremy Weller, acting as a mentor, this three-part series follows them as they attempt to tell the story of their lives through a theatre performance.

Aasmah Mir charts the group's progress as observers and academics drop in to meet them and give their insight on this devolution generation; a generation which many surveys suggest are capable of changing the face of our national politics.

The clock is ticking - not just for the young people as they approach show-time but perhaps for the Union itself.

Presenter: Aasmah Mir

Producers: Steven Rajam (Wales), Esme Kennedy (Scotland) and Conor Garrett (Northern Ireland).
