Times Radio 5x25mins - Coming Soon

Heartlands takes listeners on a journey around Britain and paints a picture of what work - in the shadow of heavy industry - looks like in 2021.

Through visiting former industrial epicentres we aim to uncover which new industries are thriving and how working culture has evolved.

Each episode will be guided by a young person (aged 16-26) living in a former industrial heartland. From call centre workers in Newport, coal mining in Whitehaven, tech entrepreneurs in Govan and Amazon workers in Tilbury, this series will shine a light on contemporary work through the lens of youth.

Producers: Hunter Charlton & Ben Tulloh
Executive Producer: Arlie Adlington
