The Brothers Who Bombed BostonOn the 15th of April, in the worst terrorist attack on American soil since 9/11, two homemade bombs exploded at the finish line of the Boston Marathon, killing three people and injuring more than 200 participants and spectators. With interviews with those who knew them, Panorama reporter Hilary Andersson explores how the two suspected bombers - brothers raised and educated in the US - became radicalised, and asks if America's war on terror has come home. With the surviving brother due to stand trial later this year, she goes on patrol with New York Police Department's anti-terrorist squad which uses the latest technology to protect New Yorkers from future terrorist attacks. But she finds a backlash amongst many Muslims in America against law enforcement programmes they believe are designed specifically to profile, map and spy on Muslims. Panorama asks: are the authorities spying on the right people?

He talks to families who have lost their sons and ex-soldiers suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder who are desperately seeking help.
The Trouble with TrumpWhen Donald Trump offered to bring six thousand jobs and a billion pounds in investment to Scotland with two world class golf courses, a five star hotel and hundreds of homes, it seemed to many an opportunity not to be missed, even though it would mean sacrificing an environmentally protected part of the Scottish coastline. Five years on from Trump's controversial planning victory, one golf course has been built, the hotel and property build is on hold while the accounts show investment of around £25 million and, according to the Trump Organisation, 200 jobs have been created rather than the thousands promised. With the land estimated now to be worth around ten times what it was thanks to the outline planning consents, Panorama reporter John Sweeney asks if the Scottish government knew enough about the self-proclaimed billionaire before saying yes and challenges Donald Trump to reveal what is behind the Trump brand.

The Truth about Pills and PregnancyMany women have to take medicines while pregnant. But could they be risking the health of their unborn child? Decades after the Thalidomide scandal shocked the world, Panorama reveals how another medicine has damaged far more children. Drugs cannot be tested on pregnant women for ethical reasons, so doctors do not know if most prescription drugs are safe for the unborn child, and the system set up to monitor side-effects appears to be flawed. As evidence emerges that some common antidepressants are linked to heart defects in babies, the programme asks how much we really know about the safety of medicines women take while pregnant.
