Chris Bowlby discovers how new populist parties are re-shaping European politics. He begins in Scandinavia - where the minority Danish People's party wields major influence. He has a rare encounter with the party's charismatic leader, "housewife" Pia Kjaersgaard, and hears how the party has transformed the country's immigration and integration policy, as mainstream parties offer concessions. He visits Sweden too to investigate how the Sweden Democrats, new members of the national parliament, now hope to emulate the Danish People's party success.
