In the second of our two-part special from Egypt, what lies ahead for Generation Tahrir? A year ago, all of Egypt rallied behind them to topple the dictator. But today, the attempts by the youth to keep the fires of the revolution burning has divided opinion. The youth say that they are the guardians of Egypt's newly-won democracy, others say that they are spoilsports, who are unwilling to accept the results of the elections. As the revolution fragments and reinvents itself, we take you on a journey from Tahrir Square to the outlying suburbs of Cairo, to meet bloggers, detainees, dissidents, and TV anchors - the young and women of the Tahrir movement - as they grapple to find a role and voice in post-revolution Egypt.
