The Alex Salmond Show


Former First Minister of Scotland Alex Salmond hosts a new political chat program, ‘The Alex Salmond Show’, on RT, where he vows to battle the mainstream media narrative and take the news “out of the Westminster nexus.” ‘The Alex Salmond Show’ will take viewers inside the Welsh, Irish and Scottish parliaments, also looking at the government of Northern Ireland, not forgetting Westminster.

The Catalan crisis – the human cost

In the first of a series on the political crisis in Catalonia, the Alex Salmond Show looks at the position in the aftermath of the Spanish general election. This first show turns to the human cost of the draconian prison sentences imposed on nine independence campaigners by the Spanish Supreme Court last month. Alex interviews Laura Masvidal and Txell Bonet, whose husbands have each been sentenced to nine years imprisonment for their part in organizing or defending the Catalan referendum of October 1, 2017.
