Panorama is a current affairs programme, featuring interviews and investigative reports on a wide variety of subjects.
With their stronghold of Mosul under fierce attack and Raqqa next in the frame, IS has intensified its global propaganda offensive, calling for more lone jihadis - 'lone wolves' - to slaughter civilians using knives and trucks 'plunged at high speed into a large gathering of unbelievers'. IS in Syria now direct attacks, giving lone wolves targets and instructions via encrypted apps that leave intelligence agencies in the dark. In this film for Panorama, reporter Peter Taylor investigates the escalation of this global phenomenon. He travels to the US to talk to the deputy director of the FBI and goes on patrol with the NYPD. He asks what the UK government can do to prevent radicalisation of young people and talks to Britain's most senior anti-terror police officer about what authorities here are doing to protect us in the face of this growing threat.
Investigative current affairs. John Simpson, one of the BBC's best-known foreign correspondents, has been at the heart of breaking news for more than half a century. A frontline witness of history, the World Affairs editor has dodged bullets and cheated death from Iraq to Afghanistan. In a highly personal Panorama, John looks back over his 50-year career, revisiting the people and places that have impacted on him most, as he reveals his thoughts on the challenges for the future.
Panorama returns to the scene of the killing of 30 British tourists by a gunman on the beach at Sousse in June 2015. Reporter Jane Corbin investigates whether security concerns were ignored before the attack and if lives could have been saved on the day. She asks why there wasn't tighter security or a warning to holidaymakers to stay away from Tunisia after similar attacks. And should the Tunisian government, the British tour operators and the Foreign Office bear any responsibility for what happened?
In the week of the new President's inauguration, Panorama reports on Russia's role in Donald Trump's election victory and asks what's behind the relationship between Vladimir Putin and Trump. Reporter John Sweeney - who has met and challenged both men - travels to Moscow and the United States to find out how sure we can be that Russian cyber-warriors influenced the US election and if there's any truth to claims that Russian intelligence has compromising material about the President elect. And from Lithuania and the battlefields of Ukraine, he investigates what this will mean for security in Europe and the rest of the world.
Following the banning of legal highs in the UK in May 2016, Panorama spent six months in Newcastle to see whether the new law is working.
