The More We Are Together is a unit of the BBC schools TV series Scene from the 1970s, covering citizenship for secondary school pupils.

Two documentaries about different ways that communities of people can live together. The first episode is about Thamesmead, at the time the newest of the new towns being built around London. The programme follows the Foy family moving into their new maisonette, and asks old people and teenagers about the facilities in the area.

The second episode is about The Isle of Scalpay in the Outer Hebrides and follows the Morrison family with 5 teenage children, most of whom will have to go to the mainland to find a job.

The programme about Thamesmead was not repeated after autumn 1972, but the programme about Scalpay was shown on its own several more times.
