Finding a French PM: Who is Jean-Luc Melenchon?

A left-wing alliance in France has won the most seats in a dramatic election, dealing a surprise blow to the far-right party of Marine Le Pen.

Ms Le Pen's National Rally was aiming to become the biggest party in parliament for the first time but was stopped by tactical voting and collaboration between its opponents.

On this episode, Niall Paterson speaks to Europe correspondent Adam Parsons about the shock result and to Philippe Marliere, professor of French and European Politics at University College London, about far-left politician Jean-Luc Melenchon and whether he could be the new French prime minister.
