The photographer Don McCullin is most famous for his work in warzones, but his latest project takes him much closer to home.

McCullin is photographing the people of Britain, rich and poor. While he has been taking photos of opera lovers at Glyndeborne, his interests are more taken in with those who are suffering from homelessness or drug problems. Other projects see him photographing people about to take part in a hunt, and also taking pictures of those who plan to sabotage it.

Don McCullin: Looking for England is on BBC Four at 21.00.
