AUSTRIA – James Mates

Could Austria become the first European country since World War II to democratically elect a far-right president? The polls show Norbert Hofer neck-and-neck with progressive opponent Alexander Van Der Bellen, who won the presidential election in May by a slim margin. Hofer's hopes have been reignited after the country's constitutional court decided to annul the election outcome after irregularities in the process were revealed and has now set a re-run for November. James Mates travels to Vienna and the surrounding countryside to explore the opposing perspectives dividing Austrian society. Could this lead the country to be the next member state to turn its back on the European Union?

TANZANIA – John Ray

In Tanzania on Africa's east coast, criminal gangs are increasingly using explosives to stun and kill fish - allowing easy collection and larger hauls. Yet their methods are having a devastating effect on the local ecosystem and entail potentially fatal consequences for the fishermen involved. Records reveal that there have been 8,700 explosions in just 14 months, resulting in thousands of metres of East Africa's most pristine coral reefs being destroyed. John Ray travels to the markets of Tanzania where dynamite is freely available and meets a fisherman who lost his hands to this dangerous and destructive practice.

ESTONIA: SPLIT BY A BORDER - Simon Harris

The Seto people in South East Estonia are one of the last folk cultures in Europe and are fighting to preserve their unique way of life. Simon Harris visits them on one of their most important religious holidays where they feast on the graves of their ancestors. Dressed in brightly coloured clothes, the Setos perform their traditional polyphonic songs, a tradition so prized it's protected by UNESCO. But the Seto culture is under threat as the border with Russia runs directly through their homeland, splitting their community and forcing many Setos to disperse across Estonia. With their numbers dwindling, the future of this small community hangs in the balance.

The following reports will air in this programme:

TURKEY – PRESIDENT ERDOĞAN: THE MOST SUCCESSFUL DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENT? - RAGEH OMAAR

Rageh Omaar travels to Turkey to gain a deeper understanding of the man some call the world's most successful democratic politician – President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. A successfully fought referendum recently gave him sweeping new powers, potentially extending his Presidency until 2029. For decades Turkey has been seen as the bridge between Europe and the Middle East, but Erdoğan's expanded powers, which include the ability to bring back the death penalty, suggest that that gap between the continents is widening even further. Almost a year on from the failed coup to topple him, Rageh visits Istanbul, a divided city, to discover how President Erdoğan has gone from overcoming a hostile takeover to convince an entire nation to hand him even more authority.

BALI – THE SHACKLING OF MENTAL HEALTH PATIENTS - DEBI EDWARD

In Indonesia, severely mentally ill people are shackled by their families in sheds, small rooms and back yards, sometimes for years on end. A lack of accessible and affordable mental health services, and a high level of superstition in the country, has resulted in up to 18,000 individuals being subjected to this treatment, say Human Rights Watch. Debi Edward travels to the Indonesian island of Bali, where she meets some of the patients who have been locked up and tethered, including one man chained by his leg in a dark room and kept completely naked for his own safety. Debi discovers why many families resort to shackling, and what is being done to help stop this archaic practice.

POLAND – 35 YEARS ON FROM THE RISE OF SOLIDARITY – TIM EWART

Thirty-five years since he was ITN's Warsaw Correspondent, Tim Ewart returns to Poland on his final assignment before he retires, to discover how the country has changed since he last set foot on Polish soil. In 1982 Tim covered the rise of the anti-Communist trade union group Solidarity which helped bring an end to the Communist control of Eastern Europe. He retraces the steps he made three decades ago, and travels to Gdansk to meet Lech Wałęsa, Solidarity's leader and former President of Poland. Tim reunites with his old team – his own translators, cameraman and soundman – in the old Communist restaurant they used to go to, and tracks down some of the Solidarity supporters he interviewed in the '80s. Yet, as Tim discovers, Poland is still a country of protest. This time however, it is the right-wing reforms of the ruling Law and Justice Party, which are sparking demonstrations throughout the country. As Tim discovers, history has a habit of repeating itself.
