Panorama: Covering up was broadcast on BBC One on Sunday, 13 June 2004 at 22:15 BST
Panorama looks at Muslim Identity in 2004, through the eyes of four young British Muslim women - who tell us why they are proud to cover up - to wear the hijab, and the veil.
More and more young British women, born and bred here, are choosing to wear the hijab - to cover their hair with headscarf - or even to veil themselves, and to cover their face entirely.
To many this may seem a very surprising decision. But in this film four women themselves speak out - and they say are covering up not because they were told to do so by their Asian families; on the contrary, this is their own decision.
They have no doubt or confusion about their identity: they are British, and Muslim, and proud of it.
