Next Episode of Inside the American Embassy is
Filmed over a nine-month period, with unprecedented access, Inside the American Embassy goes behind the closed doors of the London American embassy with America's top-level diplomats to experience, first-hand, diplomacy in the age of Trump.
There's a new ambassador in place, and there's a major relocation to a new embassy site. The ambassador's agenda is to use Brexit as a chance to promote 'America First'. Billionaire businessman Woody Johnson - a close personal friend of Donald Trump - is the new US ambassador to the UK. The President has set the agenda and tasked the ambassador to redefine the special relationship after Brexit. This episode follows the ambassador's first six months in office and has exclusive behind-the-scenes access to the embassy as it makes its historic move from Grosvenor Square to Vauxhall, where embassy staff hope it will be opened by the President.
Each day over 800 visa applicants are interviewed and judged as to who can and can't enter the USA. This episode follows consular staff as President Trump's controversial travel ban comes into force: the executive order that halted all refugee admissions and temporarily barred people from seven Muslim-majority countries. At this time of heightened scrutiny, consular staff must sort through Florida's sun-seekers and business people to spot the would-be economic migrants, terrorists, money launderers and former criminals trying to convince the person behind the window that they should be allowed in.
This episode looks at Brexit's impact on the American embassy staff. And Britain and America prepare for joint air strikes in Syria.
What's it like to be responsible for the UK visit of the most controversial US President of recent times? Despite the expected protests, you plan everything down to the millisecond, including the media strategy. There's only one problem: this President has his own ideas about what to say to whom. Your job is to keep up. Told from the exclusive perspective of the American embassy's London team - including Trump's friend the ambassador - this programme reveals what it takes to keep this unusual presidential show on the road.
