Who shot down flight MH17?

A BBC2 documentary on Tuesday 3 May examines the evidence around the shooting down of Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 over eastern Ukraine in 2014 with the loss of 298 lives.

Conspiracy Files is an occasional series where the idea is to give fair hearing to the theories that swirl around controversial events and shine light through the fog.

Director Mike Rudin is ruthless at sifting the blitz of misinformation issued by the Kremlin after the crash. Piece by piece, he discredits Russian “evidence”, including faked satellite images, claims of fighter jet sightings, and an almost laughable recording, purportedly of CIA agents involved in a bombing.

The programme also meets the relatives for whom a trial of those really responsible can’t come soon enough.

BBC2, Tuesday 3 May, 9.00pm

More violent Nazis head for Britain

Blood and Honour, the Nazi music set-up, has announced a gig in the West Midlands on St George’s Day, Saturday 23 April. Several of the invited European Nazi bands are involved in drugs and violence in their home countries. We call upon the Home Secretary and the Home Office UK Visas and Immigration agency to prevent them entering the UK as their presence is likely to provoke violence and racism.
