* The Bridge BBC iPlayer The last of the quality Saturday night Scandinavian dramas standing, now that Borgen and The Killing have ended, The Bridge (pictured, right) has returned with a twisty new series featuring animal mask-wearing eco terrorists, an outbreak of the plague and the usual crackling dialogue between detectives Saga and Martin. Bliss. Catch the latest episodes over on the iPlayer. * Young And Gay In Putin's Russia vice.com/en/uk Timed for maximum impact ahead of the Winter Olympics in Sochi comes this doc from Vice, on the ground with Russia's gay community in the wake of Putin's law that prevents homosexuality from being framed as normal. The team follow both young gay rights activists and anti-gay vigilante groups as the mood in the country becomes palpably darker. A chilling portrait of intolerance. * Dave: Loan Ranger 4oD After seeking to disrupt the dispiriting status quo of the financial industry by opening up his own local banking service in Bank Of Dave, David Fishwick turns his attention to vampiric payday loans companies in this one-off. Loan Ranger sees Fishwick investigate the much-criticised working methods of companies like Wonga and QuickQuid before attempting to help those stuck in the payday debt cycle by taking on their debts and providing them with a less arduous rate of interest. An admirable endeavour which, along with Bank Of Dave, is available to view on 4oD. * Nixon's The One Sky On Demand President Nixon , ever the proto-NSA eavesdropper, installed a secret recording system for meetings and phone calls in the White House . They were finally released in 1997, and now form the basis for this five-part comedy-drama (pictured, inset) from Harry Shearer (of Simpsons and Spinal Tap fame) and Stanley Kutler , the historian who originally brought them to light. Shearer acts out the prez in funny, fly-on-the-wall style, and the late David Frost introduces each episode of a passage of history you really couldn't make up. Desus Vs Mero bit.ly/desusvmero Online urban culture mag Complex invites two of Twitter's funniest rap sages to give their unique take on recent hip-hop events. They've got a similar laugh-out-loud funny, riffing-on-ebonics delivery as rap reviewer extraordinaire Big Ghost, which makes their conversations sound like an extended skit from a Wu-Tang album. Witness the pair explain why J Cole is the perfect music for newborn babies, discuss why French Montana never raps in French or argue that Big Sean is like your girlfriend's annoying little brother.
