Yorkshire, British or English? Answering the identity question

British Future went to York last week to join the cast of the play 'Bed' in a debate about British identity. Before the debate, we asked the cast members about their identity - British, Yorkshire or otherwise - as part of our British Histories series. From Barbara Miller's fond memories of chasing swarms of locusts from her garden in Africa to the cast's unanimous love of Yorkshire, the stories tell strong but varied picture of British identity.
