Scotland Poised to Vote on Independence

Hosted by

It’s been 307 years since Scotland and England became the United Kingdom, but generations of Scots have never lost their yearning for independence. In 1997, they established their own Parliament but, for many, that isn’t enough. In less than two weeks, all residents 16 and over will have a chance to create a separate county. Just one vote could make the difference. We’ll hear what that means for Britain’s identity crisis, and for independence movements in Spain, Italy and other countries in the European Union.
