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 reveal their vision of the future.
They are the generation who have grown up under devolution - and a vote on Scottish independence lies just around the corner. Devolution has cost a lot of money, and created a newly structured UK. But has it created a new politics - and how do young people feel in the devolved nations about their national identity? Where do they fit in? What sets them apart?
Radio 4 brought together nine young people from disparate social and geographical backgrounds, who all had something different to say. With an expert on socially-inclusive art, Jeremy Weller, acting as their mentor, this three-part series follows them as they attempt to tell the story of their lives, their nation and their future through a unique theatre performance.
Aasmah Mir charts the group's progress towards their climactic performance as observers and academics drop in to meet them and give their insight on the devolution generation: a generation that many observers suggest are capable of changing the face of our national politics.
In today's final episode - the clock is ticking as the group approach zero hour, and showtime. But is the clock ticking down on the Union itself?
