The Foreign Desk - US election special: Polling: 

Polls are not always accurate and in the US they are more regular and more detailed than everywhere else. But can polling actually shape a campaign, rather than merely reflect it? In this special edition of ‘The Foreign Desk’ from New York we look at the upcoming US elections and ask why polling is important. Featuring Jason Husser from the Elon University Poll; Dr Frank Newport, editor in chief of The Gallup Poll; and Azi Paybarah from Politico New York.

The Cinema Show - Noir: 

Spurred on by the paranoia of an America at war and the arrival of European film-makers in Hollywood, pulpy detective pot-boilers took on a genre of their own in the 1940s – and the classic film noir was born. Author and historian Eddie Muller discusses Bogart’s ‘In a Lonely Place’ (1950) and noir queen Lizabeth Scott. Plus: one Viennese cinema’s intimate love affair with 1949’s ‘The Third Man’.
