Episode 23 of 1370 episodes

Chris Bowlby investigates for Assignment how the far right is influencing mainstream European politics. He travels to Scandinavia where anti-immigration parties are increasingly powerful.

And the Sweden Democrats have rapidly increased their share of the vote, claiming that public services are being swamped by immigrants.
