Philosopher Sir Roger Scruton talks about his vision of Englishness and how it is threatened by the likes of the European Union, devolution and elitist scorn.
Scruton says England has a distinct quality seen in its landscape and countryside, in village life and in its institutions from the Church to the legal system and government. And he says these are under threat from many forces.
Scruton is a philosopher and bestselling author of more than 40 books. His works include England: An Elegy, The Soul of the World and Fools, Frauds and Firebrands: Thinkers of the New Left. He is a well-known conservative thinker and polemicist. His latest book is Where We Are: The State of Britain Now.
This event is part of a series presented by the British Academy.
