As protests continue in Belarus, Sitrep looks at the wider implications.
We hear from the man who was Britain’s ambassador in Minsk when Lukashenko took power 26 years ago on what’s likely to happen next.
In the United States, the race for the White House is hotting up, with Joe Biden setting out his pitch to American voters.
We ask a former head of the Royal United Services Institute what a Biden victory could mean for US allies, and find out why there’s talk about the military potentially being asked to remove Donald Trump from the White House if he loses, and then refuses to leave.
A former head of GCHQ joins us to discuss the idea of “principled spying” — is it even possible?
And we find out why Chelsea Football Club has adopted an historic Lancaster bomber.
