David has spent the majority of his career researching and documenting the far right in America. He is currently a correspondent for the Southern Poverty Law Centre and author of the book "Alt America: The Rise of the Radical Right in the age of Trump". On this episode we discuss the rise of the radical right into the American political mainstream.

Making an espionage series to rival Spooks? Rossa McPhillips MBE, a former soldier in British military intelligence, is offering a one-day course to writers, directors and producers on the facts about the armed forces, its culture, traditions and how it operates overseas in conflict zones from a first-hand perspective. The course will also open a door on the closed world of the intelligence services. Course participants will get the opportunity to see what the role of an intelligence officer is really like, as they take part in a realistic conflict simulation exercise where they must make quick decisions based on disparate intelligence data to prevent a hypothetical terrorist attack.
