Inside Russia Today...

Amol Rajan meets Nikolay Bogachihin, head of RT in the UK. Also in the programme, the New European celebrates its first birthday and how the British media report immigration.

RT, the news network funded by the Russian government, says it provides an alternative to the mainstream media. Critics say that it is Kremlin propaganda. Amol Rajan is given exclusive access to RT's London office and meets Nikolay Bogachihin, head of RT UK.

The New European was launched shortly after the EU referendum, aimed at the 48% who voted Remain. It was intended only to be a "pop-up" newspaper but this week publishes its 52nd edition. Matt Kelly is Editor of The New European.

Journalists who have been witness to the migrant crisis in the Mediterranean have suffered "moral injury", says a new report on their mental health. One of its authors is Hannah Storm, Director of the International News Safety Institute.

Is the British media objective when reporting on immigration? James Delingpole is executive editor of Breitbart London.
