Cuba: Castro vs the World
9pm, BBC Two
Like all Norma Percy documentaries, this two-parter about Fidel Castro’s quixotic international relations strategy has been immaculately sourced and meticulously assembled. The former US president Bill Clinton is among the witnesses to Cuba’s strange journey from international pariah state and economic oddball to symbol of kitsch resistance to US capitalism. This second episode covers the chaos of Cuba’s refugee crisis, the country’s alliance with Venezuela and the US’s imposition of a trade embargo. Phil Harrison
