D-Day's 70th anniversary: The dark side of liberation

In this edition, as Europe prepares to mark the 70th anniversary of D-Day, we talk to a historian who's offering a darker take on the liberation of France.

Plus the woman leading France's far-right, who's now giving the country's mainstream political parties a run for their money.
