Panorama asked sociologist Dr Dan Woodman who is a researcher on a longitudinal study of people of all ages whether he’s noticed any trends in disenchantment.

Reporter David Ross also speaks to correspondent Harriet Conron who attended protests outside Christopher Pyne’s book launch at the end of July, 2015.
