TONIGHTThere were “some very fine people on both sides” insisted Donald Trump after the 2017 violence at the Charlottesville rally, during which a piece of meat-head white supremacist scum by the name of James Fields Jr deliberately drove a car into a crowd of peaceful protesters, killing 32-year-old Heather Heyer and wounding 28 others. We get to see some of those “very fine people” from the far-right side up close and ugly in Documenting Hate: New American Nazis (PBS America, 9.10pm), a joint investigation by PBS’s current affairs programme Frontline and non-profit newsroom ProPublica into America’s white supremacist groups.

Linking the North East to other major cities in the North is the "single biggest" transport priority in the country. That's according to Greater Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham., who was speaking on the controversial documentary 'HS2: The Great Train Robbery' broadcast on Channel 4 on Monday night. Once complete, the high-speed HS2 railway line will directly connect London, Birmingham, the East Midlands, Leeds and Manchester. With promised speeds of 250mph, the HS2 route from London to Birmingham will be one of the world's fastest passenger trains.
