Panorama is a current affairs programme, featuring interviews and investigative reports on a wide variety of subjects.
Panorama investigates the use of chemical weapons in the civil war that's torn Syria apart in the last seven years. President Assad and his allies Russia and Iran have consistently denied the Syrian regime has used chemical weapons. But Nawal Al-Maghafi's shocking expose reveals the true extent of chemical weapons use by the regime and shows they are a crucial part of his war-winning strategy, terrorising and driving out civilians from opposition held areas.
Never before have chemical weapons have been used in this way and to this extent, but Panorama shows the west has been unable to prevent it. Nawal hears from families who have fled their homes and joined the 13 million displaced people and refugees. Though the Syrian government is now saying it's safe for refugees to return, few dare to go back home. With extraordinary footage from inside the city of Idlib, the one remaining rebel outpost, Panorama reveals the lasting impact of these weapons.
Hundreds of thousands of homeowners thought they had been saved when the government took over their mortgages during the financial crisis. But ten years on, the former Northern Rock customers are still trapped on high interest rates and now their mortgages have been taken over by an aggressive private equity fund. Reporter Andy Verity meets the families who say they have been sold out by their own government.
Will President Trump be forced out of office? On the eve of the most important US midterm elections for a generation, Panorama examines allegations that Trump colluded with Russia to win the presidency, and looks at the similarities with the Watergate scandal which brought down Richard Nixon. Reporter Hilary Andersson joins the campaign trail in West Virginia, where the president's message of a vast political witch-hunt against him has fired up Republican voters. If the Democrats do well tomorrow, it could open the door to impeachment, but Trump's supporters believe they will win and warn of riots should the establishment try to take their man down.
As the government's controversial new benefits system universal credit is rolled out, Panorama is with families surviving on food bank handouts as they struggle with their claims. The programme follows one council as it deals with mounting rent arrears and tenants in crisis. The government has responded to criticism of the new system by announcing an extra £1.7 billion, but is it too little too late?
Reporter Athar Ahmad creates a fake dating profile to turn the tables on romance fraudsters who are trying to get their hands on people's cash.
With exclusive access to the Salisbury investigation, Jane Corbin examines the inside story of the Russian attempt to assassinate former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia.
