With the US Presidential election just days away and dominating the news headlines, the acclaimed author and BBC broadcaster, James Naughtie, brings his unique and inquisitive eye to the country that has fascinated him and drawn him across the Atlantic for half a century. From Presidents Nixon through to Trump, he tells the story of a country that is grappling with a dream. What has it come to mean in the new century, and who do Americans now think they are?

Alongside his journalism he has wide cultural interests, and has written and produced many documentaries on music and books, and presented concerts from across Europe for radio and television.
