Tonight With Vladimir Putin

BBC Two chat show hosted by a CGI Putin. 2 episodes (1 series) in 2019. Stars Nathaniel Tapley and Gbemisola Ikumelo.

Series 1, Episode 2

In episode two Vlad asks his first guest the same question he asked at the production meeting: "Who is Joe Swash?" Before trying to get his head around feminism with Guilty Feminist podcaster, Deborah Frances-White. It's fair to say his grasp of the concept remains patchy.
