BFBS Radio Sitrep
NYF and Sony Radio Award winning Sitrep brings you discussion and analysis on defence, foreign policy and the stories affecting the British Forces. Presented by Kate Gerbeau with defence analyst Christopher Lee.

There’s election fever as the manifestos are published but is there anything for the Services to vote for?

Trump, Russia and Putin – exactly what is going on?

While NATO defence chiefs meet in Brussels, Sitrep goes behind the scenes at the Alliance's Joint Force Headquarters in Naples.

Plus -  how the RAF took out the IS executioners.
