Interviews, news and analysis of the day’s global events.

Millions of Brazilians are choosing between two very different candidates. Far-right candidate Jair Bolsonaro, nicknamed the "Trump of the Tropics", has been leading in the polls. He's running against leftist Fernando Haddad who replaced former President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva. Also in the programme: a vigil is being held in the US city of Pittsburgh after a gunman killed 11 people at a synagogue and we'll hear from a British mother about her son's response to medicinal cannabis.
