First World Problems
Drama of civil war in present-day Britain

Radio 4's five-part drama, First World Problems, imagines a (dis-)United Kingdom sinking into a bloody civil war some time in the near future. Martin Jameson tells the story from the point of view of one family, using detailed research to make the background detail as credible as possible. Here he reveals what he discovered about how the pillars of our complex modern infrastructure would stand up to a nation collapsing all around it.
