Macron - after victory tough task ahead

In-depth reporting and analysis from a global perspective. Reports on Emmanuel Macron's victory from Paris and from Aisne, a Le Pen stronghold.

We hear from a Marine Le Pen stronghold, from a French footballing legend who's campaigned against her and we ask the former head of the World Trade Organisation whether Macron can sell his vision of a globalised France to a sceptical public.
Also in the programme a dilemma for the Labour MP for Barrow-in-Furness - to be honest about his party's chances of victory or to be loyal.
And with Marine Le Pen's defeat - have Europe's populist insurrections come to a juddering halt?
