What do the US and Canadian leaders have in common?

The Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has just had his first face-to-face meeting with the new US President Donald Trump. On the surface, the two men don't have much in common. But they share a huge border, and intertwined economies. Also on the programme: the Iranian director on his award-winning movie, which is part history, part horror; and the robbers who came from the skies to scoop antique books.
