Ahead of the US presidential election we take a closer look at those in the running for the White House

As Americans prepare to head to the polls, award-winning documentary filmmaker, and one of the leading lights of US broadcast journalism, Michael Kirk shares insights gleaned while crafting his intricate portraits of the nominees exclusively for PBS's landmark television series, FRONTLINE.

He presents video excerpts from his programme The Choice 2016, and is joined in discussion by Dr Clodagh Harrington, De Montfort University and Chair, American Politics Group of the UK, and Griff Witte, London Bureau Chief, Washington Post

Sponsored by the Eccles Centre for American Studies at the British Library in co-operation with PBS America
