Pick of the Day
Travels in Euroland with Ed Balls, 9.00pm, BBC Two
Last year's trek around Trump's America was great fun, so here's Ed Balls back on the the box, heading across Europe in this three-parter, to determine why so many people these days are rejecting mainstream politics.
On his travels, the former politician meets everyday voters to find out what's behind this populist revolution - and the potential consequences for Europe’s future.
The first leg of his journey takes him to Holland - and the fishing towns of Den Helder and Scheveningen. Here he meets with two fishermen, Dirk and Willem.
Dirk takes Ed out for a day of trawler fishing. In the Netherlands, the fishing industry is important to the country’s national identity. Ed hears how the impact of EU law around fishing practices has affected their business.
