What can the British learn from French politics and vice versa? The French journalist, Agnes Poirier, has reported from the UK for 15 years and travels regularly between London and Paris.
In the first of a new series, she suggests ideas she would like to see transferred across the channel.
For example,what could Britain learn from the French tradition of secularism? Should we take lessons from the nation which has decided to ban the burqa? Conversely, should French journalists ditch their reverence to political figures and imitate the dog-like aggression of the British press?
Producer: Leala Padmanabhan.
