This week, an election has officially been called – so what do the major parties need to do to win? Katy Balls speaks to Stephen Bush and Will Tanner about ‘Workington Man’ and Labour’s electoral strategy.

Plus, after America’s much-publicised withdrawal from Syria, it looks like Trump is back in, this time to protect valuable oilfields from Isis. Lara Prendergast looks at how pressures back home are shaping up his foreign policy with Sir Christopher Meyer and Sarah Elliott. Sir Christopher tells us about how, of the thousand troops that were withdrawn from northern Syria, 900 of them are back in.


And last: does this video give you the shivers? We find out what ASMR is with Mary Wakefield and Dr Giulia Poerio.
