Under Vladimir Putin's government, Russian families are being rewarded for displaying 'orthodox' values, including one family that has 18 children. Nadezhda Osyak has either been pregnant or raising a baby without interruption for the past 28 years. She had her first child at 18. Since then she's had 17 more. Nadezhda and her husband Ioanna Osyak embody a growing trend in present-day Russia - families that espouse the traditional values of the Russian Orthodox Church and are being rewarded by their government for it. The couple were awarded the Order of Parental Glory by President Vladimir Putin - essentially a reward for bearing many children and displaying patriotism through their ties to the church.
In the Amazon jungle criminal groups are illegally trafficking thousands of endangered monkeys, crocodiles and big cats every year with impunity. One of the world's most beautiful places is home to one of its ugliest industries. The Amazon rainforest is the most important ecosystem on earth. But each year, thousands of animals are illegal captured and trafficked, with criminal enterprises making billions selling often endangered animals on the black market. They're rarely prosecuted. The hub of this illegal trade is Iquitos, Peru, a port city on the Amazon River. It is where Dateline hears of Senora Nati, who is known as a seller in the exotic pet trade. At the location where Dateline reporter Ade Adepitan meets Senora Nati, she shows off a collection of baby snakes, tortoises and several caimans - a species of Alligatoridae that is under threat of becoming endangered.
In the second part of our far-right special in Europe, Dateline goes to Vienna to meet a secretive group of young hipsters, whose headline-grabbing stunts are appealing to a new breed of far right nationalists. During the day Martin Sellner studies law and philosophy. His nights are often spent at a secret location in the heart of Vienna - a two storey terrace that looks abandoned. It's the headquarters of a growing youth movement across Europe; the Identitarians. Founded in France, the movement has become popular among young people who feel swamped by multiculturalism and feel they have no place to vent. The first part of this Europe special was broadcast as Will France Trump Brexit?
In the first part of a special Europe investigation, Dateline looks at why French voters are shifting to the right and what hope the National Front party gives them of a new France. Across France, a nationalist fervour is taking hold. Many citizens have aligned themselves with a new form of far right politics, which blames a struggling economy and lack of jobs on the European Union and waves of immigration from Africa and the Middle East. In the lead up to the presidential election, these entrenched anxieties have been capitalised on by the far right National Front party. Blaming economic woes on immigrants, and specifically Muslim immigrants, is a key part of their campaign strategy. And it's working. The second part of this Europe special was broadcast as Young, Hip And Far Right.
In Japan, robots are used for companionship, household tasks, sex. But can they be the remedy for something deeper and more human: loneliness? At what point does a robot become a human? In his laboratory in Osaka, Japan, one man is trying to redefine what we consider human, and blur the lines separating us from machines. Professor Hiroshi Ishiguro of the Intelligent Robotics Laboratory has spent decades developing and refining various forms of humanoid robots. In essence, these are machines that ostensibly resemble and act like humans. Hiroshi believes robots will become normalised in the near future, both in the workforce and at home. But one question yet to be fully answered is, can robots not just act human, but be human? Can they provide genuine affection, love, companionship and understanding?
Go inside one of the world's most infamous prisons, where 80 percent of inmates are locked up without a conviction, in conditions described as "subhuman". The smell of sweat, faeces, urine. Emaciated men packed like sardines in narrow corridors and behind bars, so close together they can't sit. A constant barrage of shouting. These are the first things you notice upon entering Haiti's National Penitentiary. Located in the country's capital, Port-au-Prince, it is one of the most overcrowded prisons in the world - holding more than 4000 inmates in a space build for 1200.
