Our First Plural City

Tim Whewell reports from the city of Leicester, which in the next few years is predicted to become Europe's first 'plural city', where no one group is in a majority. He explores the 'Leicester Model' of successful race relations, and the way in which different ethnic communities coexist alongside a dwindling inner-city white population. Tim finds out where the power lies in the government of the city and how the multicultural fabric of the city will fare as the newer arrivals jostle with the white and Asian communities in a time of looming recession.
