Divided Cities: stories of five cities split by major global divisions - series trailer

The fall of the Berlin Wall 30 years ago seemed to herald a more united future.

Since then our world has fractured anew and our cities feel more divided than ever, from politics to climate to food.

Divided Cities reveals five surprising stories of how major global divisions are playing out in cities around the world: Havana’s strange system of two currencies, the private sector one worth 24 times the state one; populist demands for Melilla, a Spanish outpost in Africa, to refuse asylum seekers by building a huge Trumpian wall; the “food deserts” of Memphis, Tennessee that lack what seems a basic right in richer neighbourhoods – a supermarket; Nicosia, Europe’s last divided capital, where young Cypriots are pushing back against conscription; and Delhi, a city riven by "climate apartheid" into those who can protect themselves from the elements and those who must live, suffer and sometimes die in the pollution and deadly heat.

Divided Cities looks beyond Trump and Brexit to the deeper global divisions of a world ever more split into “us” and “them”.
