Rare access to the scientists at Porton Down supporting the Covid-19 fight, what was the impact of the Dunkirk evacuation 80 years ago and gamers helping the US Army to recruit.
We hear from scientists at the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory at Porton Down who have been using their expertise to assess how the coronavirus behaves and to support the government's testing programme.
We assess the impact of Dunkirk 80 years after the evacuation of over 300,000 thousand British and Allied troops from the beaches and hear from a 100 year old veteran who was taken prisoner.
And we hear how the US Army is using skilled gamers in its ranks to reach out to prospective recruits at a time when coronavirus makes career fairs difficult. The army e-sports team competes full time and organises large online tournaments where they can meet prospective soldiers.
