It was a long and bitter race that lasted months and cost at least $2.5bn.

This episode of Fault Lines takes viewers through a tour of the US 2012 presidential campaign, from the high and low moments, to the Spin Room, to the noisy campaign ads that blanketed swing states.

We ask whether voters were presented with a real choice between the candidates, and whether the system truly is democratic.
