California ablaze

California is once again ablaze with forest fires - we look at how the state is coping with mass evacuations, smoke pollution and a pandemic. Turkey has announced the biggest find of gas in the country's history. We hear about Soul City in the US, designed as an economic engine for black communities after the war. Plus, the European hunt for minerals to go in electric car batteries and reducing the amount of methane gas which cows produce. We discuss all this with Elizabeth Gwynn – reporter for Nine News who is in New South Wales.

Breaking taboos in Iran

The taboo of domestic violence in Iran is being tackled by a podcaster who calls herself Maryam. She tells the story of her own abusive marriage, and is joined in each podcast by other women who share their experiences. Nooshin of BBC Monitoring explains why this taboo persists in her home country.

From the streets of Belarus to Franco’s Spain: the story of a song
The anthem being sung by protesters on the streets of Belarus has a story that starts in 1960s Spain, during the regime of General Franco. It was written by a Catalan singer-songwriter and is a call for unity of action to achieve freedom. Since then it has had several new lives in different countries, where many are unaware of its origins. BBC Mundo’s Enric Botella, who’s from Catalonia, tells the story.

Changing attitudes to dogs in Egypt
The Grand Mufti of Egypt recently sparked controversy by announcing that dogs are not 'impure', in the religious context. It is a widely held belief throughout much of the Islamic world that dogs are unclean. Sally Nabil of BBC Arabic describes attitudes to dogs in Egypt.

Nubia and her children
Before the coronavirus lockdown in Colombia, Nubia Gaona was struggling to bring up her two sons as a widow in the impoverished countryside. But the family have turned around their fortunes and become famous in Colombia – by putting their lives on YouTube. The BBC’s Daniel Pardo, who's based in the capital Bogota, has been to meet them.

SAT 03:50 Witness History (w3cszmv9)
The siege at Ruby Ridge

Randy Weaver was a white separatist in Idaho in the north-west United States who was wanted by the government on firearms charges. When government agents approached his remote cabin on Ruby Ridge in August 1992, it was the start of an eleven day siege involving hundreds of police officers – which ended with the deaths of Weaver’s wife and teenage son, along with a US marshal. The incident would become a touchstone for the far right and a rallying cry for the American militia movement. Lucy Burns speaks to journalist Bill Morlin, who covered the siege for the Spokesman-Review newspaper.

India's Covid-19 challenge

India has entered a dangerous new phase of the pandemic. The country’s infection rate is the third-highest in the world. It also has the fourth-highest death toll. Testing is a shambles, and infections are moving into rural areas where healthcare is sorely lacking. Late in March, all of India's 1.3 billion people were told to stay at home while the government bought itself time to prepare for the pandemic. But instead of confining people where they were, the lockdown resulted in one of the biggest peace time migrations of people. Instead of helping to defeat the virus, it has created economic hardship for many. So why did Prime Minister Narendra Modi act so fast and can India now get the virus under control and the economy back on track? Mr Modi’s Hindu nationalist government is still popular with many Indians, but his critics say he's using the coronavirus as a cover for the consolidation of power. Are they right? And will it accelerate a Hindu nationalist vision for the country that risks more religious unrest? Ritula Shah is joined by a panel of commentators.

Can an algorithm be racist?

Algorithms have shaped the internet as we know it. Complex automated instructions drive search engines and social media platforms, and offer us each a tailored, individualised online experience.

Techno-optimists have long looked at artificial intelligence in awe, hoping that machines and algorithms would help humans find solutions for complex problems and remove human bias.

But some are more sceptical and argue algorithms not only have human prejudices built into them – but that they are making those biases worse.

Robert Elliott Smith is an expert in artificial intelligence and author of the new book Rage Inside the Machine: The Prejudice of Algorithms, and How to Stop the Internet Making Bigots of Us All.

He argues that algorithms are prejudiced by their very nature and that, in their search for simple solutions to human questions, they have created divisions among us.

He also argues algorithms have amplified our biases and turned many of us into bigots.

But are the machines really to blame? Or are they just mirroring who we really are?

No American alive today will be able to recall a contest for the presidency in which both candidates have reached so enthusiastically for the language of apocalypse - not because they’ve got carried away by excitement, but because they believe it.

Recycling Chile, recycling Spain

Leena Vuotovesi, the leader of environmental work in Europe’s greenest town, Ii in Finland, travels to Chile and Spain to compare recycling practices.

First she visits La Pintana - Chile’s unlikely climate champion: an impoverished neighbourhood plagued by crime and violence that recycles more than any other town in Chile. They turn residents’ vegetable waste into compost, used cooking oil into biodiesel and discarded cigarette ends into fertiliser - and they save money in the process. Leena meets locals who are keen to participate in building a circular economy and finds that La Pintana’s mayor, a woman with a mission to improve the local environment is key to driving the changes.

Leena then goes to a pristine part of southern Spain - a country where municipal recycling rates lag way behind EU targets. She speaks to children, teachers and waste management experts to find out why Spanish people don’t appear to care about recycling and to see what could be done to reduce environmental and economic damage.

Belarus: Which way now?

Protests have continued in the former Soviet nation of Belarus this week and workers are starting to strike. How will the struggle for reform play out and what does it mean for the economy? We hear from businesses there trying to plan for the future. We also hear how women have been disproportionately affected by the coronavirus pandemic. Some analysts say the fight for gender equality has been put back 50 years. In Beirut, business owners are trying to recover after the explosion which tore through their city. They tell us their stories. Plus, how does a socially distanced concert work? We hear from the organisers of the first of these new type of gigs in the UK. Business Weekly is presented by Lucy Burton.

Virtual politics in the US

Caroline Wyatt introduces analysis, reportage and personal reflections from correspondents around the world.

In just under three months, Americans will go to the polls to choose their next president. This week, the Democrats held their national convention and like most political events now, it was virtual. Journalists, including Laura Trevelyan, pitched up in Delaware, to Joe Biden – the Democratic Party candidate – to assess the appetite for politics during this turbulent summer.

Belarusian president, Alexander Lukashenko, has stepped up efforts to reassert his control. It follows ten days of mass protests which were triggered by an election widely believed to have been rigged in his favour. Lukashenko has given orders to end unrest in the capital, Minsk, but these came after EU leaders announced they would not recognise the results of the election. Our correspondent Jonah Fisher has been following developments.

The South African government has eased coronavirus lockdown restrictions this week, including its ban on the sale of alcohol. The measure was introduced to ease pressure on the healthcare system. For Vumani Mkhize it was a moment to reflect on his personal relationship with alcohol.

More than 200 people were killed in the explosion in Beirut that was caused by large quantities of ammonium nitrate stored in a dockside warehouse. The blast took with it whole neighbourhoods, not only blowing apart homes and work places but spooking and injuring the city’s animals too. Communities have since taken it upon themselves to reunite owners with their beloved pets and it is this effort that has touched Leila Molana-Allen.

"I cried watching the film” – McFadden on Rising Phoenix

We speak to seventeen time Paralympic medallist Tatyana McFadden and director Ian Bonhote ahead of the release of a major new film about the Paralympic movement.

McFadden is one of nine athletes featured in Rising Phoenix and she recalls spending time in a Russian orphanage, being adopted and moving to America and then being reunited with her birth mother at Sochi 2014. McFadden tells us she isn’t ruling out competing in another Winter Games and that she hopes to continue her career until the Los Angeles Paralympics in 2028.
Ian Bonhote has previously worked on advertising campaigns with Lionel Messi and Tiger Woods and he tells us it was important to give the athletes in Rising Phoenix their own spotlight. He also tells the story of Jean-Baptiste Alaize. The French athlete – who features in the documentary – witnessed his mother’s murder as a child and was hacked with machetes and left for dead himself.

David Diamante speaks to us ahead of Katie Taylor’s world title fight against Delphine Persoon. Diamante is one of the most recognisable ring announcers in boxing and he tells us how he got into the sport, why he says every fighters surname twice and explains just how seriously he takes his role in announcing the results. Diamante also reflects on being clean of drugs for twenty seven years, saying: “living sober is absolutely wonderful”.

Cheryl Foster joins us after she was promoted to Uefa’s list of elite referees. The Welsh official tells us she had been due to take charge of one of the quarter-finals in the Women’s Champions League this week before the Covid-19 pandemic and a subsequent lack of match action ended her hopes.

We catch up with Australian swimmer Chloe McCardel after she broke the men’s record for the number of English Channel crossings. She reached thirty five after completing four crossings in recent weeks.

In Sporting Witness we go back to the 2002 Commonwealth Games in Manchester, when the performance of the Indian women’s hockey team inspired a Bollywood film.

And – with live sport continuing this weekend we look ahead to the Champions League final and we check in at the AIG Women’s Open golf and the second test between England and Pakistan.

Vaccines, Money And Politics

Vaccines, money and politics

Scientists around the world are working at pandemic speed to discover a safe and effective vaccine against the virus SarsCoV2, and the disease it causes Covid 19. But while all this research is taking place, a host of other critical elements need to be organised if we are to have any chance of successfully building an immunisation programme to reach more than seven billion people with a vaccine that will, at least initially, be in limited supply.
In part two of Vaccines, Money and Politics, Sandra Kanthal looks at what strategies are being put in place to transport a vaccine to countries around the world, who will be the first in those countries to get the vaccine, and, once it is available, how to convince people to take it.

'I forgot to hit record' with Afrodeutsche and Ellen Allien

This week, we’re celebrating artists that have close ties with the German city of Berlin.

Ellen Allien is a globally renowned DJ, electronic musician, producer and label boss based in Berlin. Her label, B-Pitch Control, has shaped the sound of the city over the last decade, and she’s constantly pushing the boundaries of what’s achievable with music and a dancefloor. Catnapp is an experiemental, self-taught electronic music artist and sound engineer from Buenos Aires, Argentina, who moved to Berlin in 2015. She recently appeared in the Netflix series Unorthodox, and in the future she wants to score music for sci-fi films. Mentrix is a Berlin-based vocalist, multi-instrumentalist and composer from Tehran, Iran. Her music blends her experiences of eastern and western culture, and she brings together electronic sounds with traditional Sufi instrumentation. And our host this week is Afrodeutsche, a Russian/British/Ghanaian composer, DJ, producer, and remix artist who’s performed and worked with the likes of Aphex Twin and former Music Life guest Marie Davidson.

They’ll be discussing how the sounds of history make their way into their music, feeling the pressure to create, and the importance of finding inspiration.

The ballads of Emmett Till

**Some listeners may find parts of this programme upsetting**

Emmett Till, fourteen and black, was put on the train from Chicago by his mother Mamie in August 1955. She got his corpse back, mutilated and stinking. Emmett had been beaten, shot and dumped in the Tallahatchie River for supposedly whistling at a white woman. His killers would forever escape justice.

What Mamie did next helped galvanise the Civil Rights Movement and make Emmett the sacrificial lamb of the movement. From the very first Till's death was both a call to political action and the subject of songs, poetry and prose.

Gwendolyn Brooks, Langston Hughes, James Baldwin, Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell and many more have been drawn to tell his tale - his is the never ending ballad of the first black life that mattered.
His disfigured image in the legendary photograph in Jet magazine is seared into the memories of generations of Black Americans. And now Till has returned to haunt America. Taken up by the mothers and fathers of the slain in the Black Lives Matter movement, the subject of new documentaries, a trio of forthcoming Hollywood films and a new FBI investigation as the search for justice continues. His coffin lies at the heart of the Washington's new museum of African American history - a secular shrine and symbol of the enduring pain of American racism.

Maria Margaronis travels through landscape and memory across Mississippi and Chicago to reveal the many layers of meaning and the many ways Emmett's story has been told and retold. These are the Ballads of Emmett Till.

Barbara Demick: True stories from North Korea

North Korea and Tibet are two of the most tightly-controlled societies on earth, and as a consequence their peoples are often misunderstood by the world’s media, caricatured respectively as aggressive communists and spiritual hermits. But Barbara Demick, former Los Angeles Times correspondent in Seoul and Beijing, confesses that she likes a challenge, and so set out to build a more nuanced picture of individuals’ real lives in both places. Moreover, she did this with minimal location reporting; indeed in the case of North Korea, she never visited the city she wrote about at all. Using an almost forensic level of investigation, Demick conducted lengthy and highly detailed interviews with people who had left both places, cross-referencing testimonies and drawing on additional research to corroborate their accounts. She then used the resulting material to inform a vivid, factual storytelling style that she calls narrative non-fiction. As she explains in conversation with Owen Bennett-Jones, it is a difficult process, but one that yields fascinating insight into places whose repressive leaders would rather we knew far less about.

Will God protect me?

What does it mean to ask "God to keep you safe" in the time of a pandemic? What is the meaning and scope of divine protection?

The belief in divine protection is a significant feature of the Christian response to the pandemic particularly within some of the African and Caribbean Churches in the UK. On the one hand, all churches offered prayers for divine protection over individuals and the nation. On the other, some Christian groups, went further than offering prayers and promoting the sale of special protection kits, "guaranteed to ward off Corona Virus." Tragically, some believers in Britain, believing God is protecting them, didn't seek medical help when they were sick and passed away.

In this programme, Professor Robert Beckford sets out to discover the meaning of 'divine protection' within his own Pentecostal Christian tradition.

Covid-19 'long-haulers'

Thousands of people across the globe are experiencing a worrying cycle of Covid-19 symptoms months after recovering from the disease. Four of the so-called 'Covid long-haulers’ - from South Africa, Canada, Bangladesh and New Zealand - share their persistent symptoms, from dizziness to brain fog, with Nuala McGovern.

Education is also a long-term concern and US parents discuss the different paths they’ve chosen for returning their children to school during a pandemic. For one teacher in Arizona, however, it resulted in a difficult decision. He explains why he chose to resign rather than return to the classroom.

Women winning the Nobel Prize for Medicine

Just 12 women have won the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine since it was founded in 1901. Kim Chakanetsa brings together two of these female Nobel Laureates - both extraordinary scientists from Norway and France.

Professor May-Britt Moser won the prize in 2014 for the discovery of a type of cell in the brains of rats, which helps them locate their position in space.  She won the prize jointly with her former husband Edvard, with whom she had collaborated since they were students. Now divorced, they still run a world-renowned neuroscience lab - the Kavli Institute - together in the far north of Norway, where they are pursuing research that could further our understanding and treatment of Alzheimer's in humans.

Professor Françoise Barré-Sinoussi was a researcher at the Institut Pasteur in Paris in the early 1980s when a new and terrifying disease emerged - AIDS. She and her colleague very quickly identified the HIV retrovirus as the cause, and set about finding a treatment. In 2008 she was recognised by the Nobel committee for this achievement, and she says this has opened doors for her work that otherwise would have remained closed - enabling her to better advocate on behalf of the vulnerable people most affected by HIV-AIDS.

The Senses

The senses: Smell and taste

Imagine spraying yourself with a flowery fragrance but all you can smell is rotting flesh? Our senses can be surprisingly strange, especially when they malfunction due to injury, disease or genetic abnormalities. In this episode, neurologist Dr Guy Leschziner, explores two senses, smell and taste - separate yet inextricably linked.

We meet Joanne, whose sense of smell is so distorted after a heavy cold, even freshly-cut grass smells repulsive. We also hear from Walter who loves to cook and eat German cuisine but finds that pleasure is ruined when everything, even fine wine, tastes of metal.

By contrast, 15 year-old Abi’s sense of taste is working properly. She can tell if her food is sweet or salty. But Abi was born without a sense of smell (anosmia), which also means anything she eats has no flavour – because that’s created by smell and taste working together.

Loss of smell, an early symptom of coronavirus, has raised awareness of this important, yet neglected sense, often only appreciated when it’s gone. Yet so vital it’s wired directly to parts of the brain responsible for memories and emotion.

Produced by Sally Abrahams for the BBC World Service.

Food media's moment of reckoning?

When a misguided halloween costume resurfaced on social media in June - no one could have predicted the events that ensued. It ignited a twitter storm about racism in food writing and led ultimately to the resignation of two food editors at major US publications. Graihagh Jackson hears from the whistleblower at the centre of the controversy and from critics of mainstream food media, who say myopic, white-washed and problematic representations of food are all-too-common. We hear from people trying to change the status quo and ask if this is the moment of reckoning the industry needs.

How close are we to a vaccine for Covid-19?

Researchers around the world are racing to develop a vaccine against Covid-19, with more than 170 candidate vaccines now in development. Most vaccines take years of testing and additional time to produce at scale, but scientists are hoping to develop a coronavirus vaccine at record speed. Several potential vaccines are now in the final phase of testing but it could still be months before we discover if they are safe and can effectively prevent people from being infected.

If a vaccine can be found, there are concerns about how the world will manufacture enough. There may be challenges in storing it at the right temperature and transporting it safely around the world. Plus, rich countries might hoard supplies. Although hopes are high it is entirely possible that a safe and effective vaccine is a long way off, or never discovered. Experts warn that ‘waiting for a vaccine syndrome’ could be distracting us from finding other solutions for controlling the spread of Covid-19.

The Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt is one of the greatest wonders of the ancient world. It is the largest pyramid ever built and even today, with advanced satellite and thermal imaging and other high tech science, we don’t know everything about the pyramid- exactly what’s inside or how it was built. To explore the history of The Great Pyramid - also known as the Pyramid of Khufu, after the Pharaoh who commissioned it as his tomb - Rajan Datar is joined by Salima Ikram, Distinguished University Professor and Egyptology Unit Head at the American University in Cairo, space archaeologist Sarah Parcak, a National Geographic fellow and Professor at Birmingham University Alabama in the USA, and Professor Joyce Tyldesley, an archaeologist and Egyptologist from the University of Manchester in the UK.

Bollywood: The hidden cost of stardom

India’s film industry is among the largest in the world. It releases around 2,000 films every year and attracts a steady band of actors hoping to make their fortune. Most of them head to Mumbai where the hugely popular Hindi film industry, also known as Bollywood, is based.

But it’s an uphill battle. On the surface, glamour, fame, and pomp form its biggest appeal, but underneath, harsh prejudices, fierce competition, and toxic rivalry run deep.

So, what are the positives and the pitfalls that aspiring actors endure? And how has the journey been like for those who’ve earned name and fame? In this edition of WorklifeIndia, we discuss Bollywood and its hidden cost for stardom.

Chak de India!

In August 2002, the Indian women’s field hockey team won an unlikely gold medal against the favourites, England, at the Commonwealth Games in Manchester. The players had struggled to be taken seriously in a country that prioritises men’s sport, but they fought their way past New Zealand and South Africa to reach a final that turned on a dramatic refereeing decision. The women’s story later inspired the hit Bollywood film, Chak De India (or Come On, India!), which is credited with improving attitudes to women’s sport in India. Tom Roseingrave talks to the Indian goal-keeper, Helen Mary Innocent. The programme is a Whistledown Production.

What’s the yeast doing inside my bread?

If you’re one of the millions of people who used lockdown to try something new like baking sourdough bread, you may well be wondering what’s happening chemically inside your loaf, especially if the end result keeps changing. Well, you’re not alone. Listeners Soheil and Sean are both keen bakers but want to know more about the thing that makes bread rise: yeast. What is yeast? Where does it come from and can you catch it? And how hard is it to ‘make’ yourself? Soon after lockdown took effect, commercial supplies of the stuff disappeared from supermarket shelves across the globe.

The shortage also affected brewers the world over. A big fan of yeast in most of its forms, Marnie Chesterton took on the challenge of creating her own. She talks to the brewers who hunt rare strains to create the perfect beer, and hears from the biologist who says these amazing microbes, used for thousands of years, could be used to make food production more sustainable. And she discovers how this simple ingredient could be instrumental in the fight against climate change.

Mechanics: Patrice Banks and Sandra Aguebor

Patrice Banks says she was an 'auto airhead' before she fell in love with fixing vehicles. She was an engineer for a big chemicals company, but despite her passion for problem solving she avoided her own car maintenance and preferred to pay a man to do it. The Philadelphia born mechanic discovered that many other women felt the same way and decided to do something about it. Patrice started work in a garage, went back to school and set up Girls Auto Clinic to help women feel more connected with their cars.

Nigerian Sandra Aguebor got her first job in a car repair shop aged 13 and has never looked back. Sandra did not let the jokes and jeers about being a girl doing this job get to her. Now Sandra is famous for being Nigeria's first female mechanic and has run her own garage, Sandex Car Care, for 20 years. She also leads the Lady Mechanic Initiative, which trains women to work with cars.

By 12 years old she was dealing crack cocaine from their home, but she was still writing raps everyday about the things she saw and experienced. She tells Jo Fidgen how one night, when she was 18, she heard  a commotion on the street and went out to investigate, only to be caught up in a very serious situation. Part two of her story continues tomorrow.
 
British wildlife expert Chris Packham has an encyclopaedic knowledge of the natural world, but he finds understanding the people around him far more difficult. However, he hasn't let this stop him from becoming a household name in the UK. Outlook's Saskia Edwards went to meet him. This interview was first broadcast 30th June 2018.

The Life Scientific

Professor Emma Bunce

Emma Bunce, Professor of Planetary Plasma Physics at the University of Leicester, was inspired to study the solar system as a child by a TV programme that featured Voyager 2’s flyby of Neptune. She has spent the last 20 years focusing on the magnetic fields around the outer planets, in particular that of Jupiter. The Earth’s magnetic field interacts with the solar wind to create aurorae, the spectacular Northern lights. Emma’s discovered how aurorae are also produced at Jupiter's poles.

Emma Bunce talks to Jim al-Khalili about her fascination with the gas giants, why she has to be patient to check out her theories as missions to the planets are few and far between and how she'd love to work on a spacecraft to Neptune. And in the year when the Royal Astronomical Society marks its 200th anniversary, Emma explains why she's taken on the role of its President.

Republican party begins vote rallying

At the opening day of the Republican Convention, we are picking apart the polls that show the President still has a mountain to climb if he wants to get re-elected. A little nudge can make the world a better place - but can it save us from a crisis? We look at the science of behavioural economics and nudge theory. A fight is breaking out in the Apple app store over the way Apple treats its sellers. It started with a gaming app, now Microsoft has waded in - and in the background the anti-trust regulators are paying close attention. We discuss all this live with guests Peter Morici is in Washington. Professor Emeritus of International Business at the R.H. Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland, and in Singapore, Stefanie Yuen Thio, joint managing partner of TSMP Law Corporation.

Red State refugees

President Trump has dramatically reduced the numbers of refugees arriving in the United States, vowing to protect native-born Americans’ interests. But there’s a catch: some of the nation’s reddest communities may not survive without them. Katy Long will tell the story of one small, poor, conservative town — Cactus, Texas — where hundreds of refugees have settled, drawn by the well-paid jobs in meatpacking, shifting the demographics of the community, shaping the refugees’ perspective and saving the town from disaster. But for all that they represent change, Katy sees that in the longer-term some of the refugees’ views and values are more in line with small conservative towns than liberal cities.

Katy visited Cactus in 2018 and now, in the midst of a pandemic which continues to ravage this part of Texas, she catches up remotely with some of those she first met then. She’ll start with the elementary school Principal, TJ Fundenburg, the son of a local blacksmith who cheerfully admits that he didn’t know where Burma was before Burmese students started arriving at his school.

Cactus is a town which would have died altogether, taking the meatpacking plant and the jobs there with it, had it not been for these refugees. And so underlying this story is a question: if you drastically reduce immigration and stop refugee resettlement – as the Governor of Texas has recently announce – what happens to these towns, to the meatpacking industry, and to the idea of beef-and-oil-Texas?

Education in Africa

Is the continent looking at a lost generation of students as Covid-19 forces the majority of education ministries to scrap the entire 2020 Academic year?Tamasin Forde speaks to Folawe Omikunle the CEO of Teach for Nigeria, a charity that places leaders into under-served primary schools as teachers. She says Covid has shone a light on their already crumbling education sector. Professor Lilian Salami is the Vice Chancellor of Nigeria’s University of Benin in Benin City. They closed in February like many across the country and she tells Tamasin they weren’t able to offer any remote learning for their students because of a lack of infrastructure in their area. And Philip Pleiwon is the founder of Imano, an online platform that aggregates open source free content from around the world as well as individual university syllabuses. He says higher learning institutions are now finally clamouring to get online. (Picture description

Nelson Makamo: Celebrating children from rural South Africa

Eighteen months ago the work of South African artist, Nelson Makamo, featured on the iconic cover of Time magazine. It placed the already popular artist - with fans like Oprah Winfrey, Ava DuVernay and Giorgio Armani – firmly onto the global stage.

The painting Makamo created for the cover was of Mapule, his now 12 year old cousin, who he’s been painting ever since she was a child. In a touching and practical exchange, he pays for Mapule’s studies.

As he prepares for an exhibition, In the Studio’s Mpho Lakaje meets Nelson at his studio in Johannesburg, to watch him at work and discover why he so often places children from rural South Africa centre stage.

The life and crimes of a bearded lady: part two

After being involved in a shoot out with an undercover police officer outside her home in Philadelphia, BL Shirelle faced years behind bars. But it was in prison where she would meet her future wife, finally embrace her facial hair and find her voice. She tells Jo Fidgen about how a song she wrote and performed while serving time helped her find a way out of a life previously dominated by drugs, crime and violence. She is now the deputy director of the record label, Die Jim Crow and has recently released her debut album.

Tae-hoon Kim gave up a job in publishing in Seoul to become a single foster dad to ten North Korean children, all of whom defected to the South without their parents. Over the years he's transformed his home to accommodate all ten kids, as well as two washing machines and six fridges.

Dr Isaac Bogoch from the University of Toronto helps to explain some of the other developments with the virus. Debate on whether masks should be worn in schools is going on around the world and we ask some teenagers how they feel about wearing them.

The World Health Organisation is due to declare Africa free of polio virus today. Nigeria was the last country with new cases in the continent, and we hear a story of one young survivor in the country.

Protests in the city of Kenosha in Wisconsin continued overnight, following the shooting of Jacob Blake on Sunday. We speak to some of the people who have been on the streets and reflect on the national conversation on race that has followed the death of George Floyd.

Hacking help for US Elections

As November's US presidential election approaches an army of volunteer 'hackers' are offering their expertise to local election offices to help prevent a wide range of cyber-attacks.

We speak with organiser Maya Worman from the Chicago Harris Cyber Policy initiative.

Electrical chemistry is key to a new way of analysing sleep patterns. Chemists have built sensors into a face mask to measure eye movement. They combined this with a pyjama top loaded with respiratory and motion sensors. Trisha Andrew from the University of Massachusetts Amherst led the project.

And fast food chain KFC drops its famous 'Finger Licking Good' advertising slogan during the pandemic. We discuss all this with Mitchell Hartman in Portland, Oregon – he is a senior reporter for Marketplace radio in the US, and Sarah Birke, a Foreign correspondent for The Economist in Tokyo.

The Senses

The senses: Synaesthesia: When senses merge

Neurologist Dr Guy Leschziner explores the extraordinary sensory experiences of individuals with synaesthesia - a mash-up of senses where one sense automatically triggers another. Some synaesthetes hear colours, others feel sound.

We meet James who perceives the world differently from most people, due to his brain’s unusual wiring. Whenever he hears a word he immediately gets a taste and texture in his mouth. As a child, he’d go by train to school with his mum, reading out loud the stations they passed through. His favourite was Tottenham Court Road because the word sounds taste of sausage, crispy fried egg and toast.

Whilst James tastes words, 23 year-old synaesthete Valeria sees colours and feels textures when she hears music. She assumes everyone has that sensory experience until, at aged 14, she sees her dad’s astonished reaction! For Valeria, some music is so utterly exquisite it causes her intense, physical pain.

Such variations in perception can also affect our internal world as Sheri, a painter from Canada, illustrates. After a stroke in her twenties she can no longer picture images in her mind. The condition, aphantasia (meaning ‘without a mind’s eye’) is so devastating Sheri calls it “internal blindness”.

Our understanding of reality comes from how we perceive the world around us. But as we discover in this programme and throughout this series, each of us experiences a unique reality constructed by our brain and our sensory system. Leading us to question what is real and what is an illusion.

Rulebreakers

Veteran on the tracks

There is a secret map passed down from hobo to hobo. You can’t buy it in stores or download it online but if you’re lucky enough to get a copy you can travel anywhere in America by freight train. They call it The Crew Change Guide and it is a sacred document for those who still ride in boxcars like the hobos looking for work in the great depression. This state by state guide has grown from one man’s obsession into a network of everything you need to get from Aliceville, Alabama to Wendover, Wyoming - all for “low or no dollars”. Complete with details like which hole to crawl through and the best places to hide from the railroad police, it preserves in its pages the constantly changing terrain of American hobo culture. Fiercely protected by those who depend on the lifestyle, getting a photocopy of the guide is part of a ritual within the community and reserved only for those who have proven their worth.

This programme explores this underground document and the man behind the map, a 72-year-old Vietnam veteran known only as Train Doc. His life’s work has never been about leading an underground movement but he is an icon for hobos and his guide has evolved over the years from a train hopping handbook into a historical document, preserving the history of his culture in America.

The man giving former extremists a second chance

Noor Huda Ismail believes he narrowly avoided becoming radicalised as a teenager in Indonesia. But he got the shock of his life when he was working as a journalist covering the 2002 Bali bombings and recognised a familiar face among the suspects – a childhood friend from school. That set him on a mission to understand why and how people end up getting involved in extremist groups. He committed himself to helping de-radicalise former extremists and founded the Institute for International Peace building. He also runs a café in Indonesia where some of his employees are former Islamist extremists - he believes that one of the keys to de-radicalisation is keeping people busy. 
 
Ran Feinstein and Ofer Ra'anan are divers from the Israeli city of Ra'anana, who get together on free days and weekends to explore the coastline around the country. Back in 2016, on one of their diving trips off the ancient port of Caesarea, they discovered some unexpected treasure - a sunken Roman ship full of artefacts.
 
Oscar Nilsson is a Swedish sculptor and historian who reconstructs the faces of the past. He uses excavated bones as his reference point - sculpting the heads of people who lived hundreds, sometimes even thousands, of years ago to create busts that give us a picture of what they might have looked like when they were alive.

Newborn deaths in US

In the US, black newborn babies appear to be three times more likely to die in hospital than white newborns. A new study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences looked at the doctors in charge of newborns’ care. From census data for the twenty three years running up to 2015 they found that if a black doctor cares for a black baby the risk of death was halved. Claudia Hammond explores what might be going on here with the authors of the paper, Rachel Hardeman, Blue Cross Endowed Professor in Health and Racial Equity at the University of Minnesota and Brad Greenwood, Associate Professor at George Mason University’s School of Business.

Dr Margaret Harris of WHO gives us an update on the numbers of Covid cases worldwide and where cases are on the rise. She also discusses the case in Hong Kong of a patient who has tested positive for the coronavirus for a second time.

A new finding overturns three centuries of received wisdom that sperm swim by wiggling like tadpoles. Hermes Gadelha from Bristol University explains to Adam Rutherford how he made this discovery.

And Matthew Fox, Professor of Global Health Epidemiology at Boston University, joins Claudia to discuss attacks on public health staff in the US, how a certain type of contact lens may help short-sightedness or myopia in children and how selfies could help in the diagnosis of early signs of heart disease.

Hugh Sykes: Reporting from the frontlines

Hugh Sykes has reported for the BBC since the 1970s and has travelled far and wide to witness some of the most significant events of our age. Here, in conversation with Owen Bennett-Jones, he discusses what some of those stories mean to him, and explains the journalistic values he applied to them. From the historic British coal miners’ strike of 1984-5 to the insurgency in Iraq, Sykes has faced down danger, surviving respectively an attack by angry strikers who threatened to throw him into a canal, and a roadside bomb. Yet he has always insisted on keeping his own feelings out of the story, in order to let his subjects communicate directly to listeners. Meanwhile, we hear too about his love of Iran, formed by years spent there as a child, about his preference for the medium of radio over television – and about how high spirits in the studio once nearly landed him in trouble with BBC bosses.

What’s gone wrong in Lebanon?

The massive explosion that tore through Beirut on August 4th left more than 200 people dead, 6,000 injured, and as many as 300,000 homeless. The explosion was caused by a fire that ignited 2,750 tons of ammonium nitrate stored at the port. When the blast hit, Lebanon was already in the middle of an unprecedented economic and political crisis that has triggered hyperinflation, poverty, and hunger. Many Lebanese feel that the blast was not the cause of catastrophe in Lebanon, but the result of it. Tanya Beckett asks, what’s gone wrong in Lebanon?

Lal Ded, mystical Kashmiri poet

There is a great deal of mystery surrounding the poems attributed to the female Kashmiri poet, mystic and sage known as Lal Ded or Lalla. There are no records of her life but what is beyond doubt is the vitality, wisdom and endurance of her work. Her poems, usually just four lines long, have been around for centuries and remain so popular that some of them have passed into everyday speech in Kashmir. Lal Ded’s poems are also celebrated for their independence of thought and spirit and for challenging stereotypical images of what counts as female poetry during the Middle Ages.
Rajan Datar is joined by leading Kashmiri writer and translator Neerja Mattoo; poet Ranjit Hoskote, author of a complete rendering of Lalla's poetry into English; Andrew Schelling, professor of poetry at Naropa University in Colorado who has translated and edited Indian devotional poetry for many years; and Dean Accardi, professor of history at Connecticut College who specialises in medieval Kashmir.

Sean Sherman: My life in five dishes

After decades of racism, persecution and forced assimilation, Native Americans had lost many of their traditional foods and recipes. Award-winning chef Sean Sherman has made it his life’s mission to bring them back from the brink of extinction.

He tells Graihagh Jackson about a “feral” childhood spent on a vast reservation in South Dakota, USA, and how his impoverished community was forced to rely on highly processed, government-supplied commodity foods, which he says have had serious and long-term health implications for his people.

A successful but highly stressful career running restaurant kitchens pushed him to the point of burnout – he explains how a recuperation mission to Mexico led to an epiphany about his own food heritage and a meticulous effort to revive it and rid it of colonial influences.

He’s since written an award-winning cookbook, set up a non-profit to educate others about North America’s native cuisines, plans to open a restaurant next year, and tells us he wants to make his indigenous food movement a global one.

Surfing and sisterhood - making waves in Jamaica

Imani Wilmot was born into a surfing family – her father is known as the 'godfather' of Jamaican surfing and her brothers are also avid boarders, so she took to it like a duck to water. She was good too, winning competitions and representing her country with pride. But she soon realised that she was the only top black female surfer at those competitions, and that if she wanted a community around her she’d have to create it herself. Imani spoke to Jo Fidgen about how she set up a surf school for girls and women when she was 17, sharing her confidence and discovering the healing power of the waves.
 
British swimmer Beth French has chronic fatigue syndrome, and when she was a teenager her symptoms were so severe she spent a year in a wheelchair. So years later, when she swam all the way from England to France – and was still home in time to put her son to bed – she knew she’d done something really special. But then Beth set herself a huge challenge; she vowed to swim seven of the world’s most dangerous ocean channels in a single year. Along the way she learnt something unexpected. This interview was first broadcast on May 20th 2019.

Federal Reserve announces revolutionary inflation strategy

The Federal Reserve has outlined a plan to revolutionise how it sets policy, including interest rates. The bank will now let inflation rise to allow the economy to produce more jobs. Sarah House, Senior Economist at the US bank Wells Fargo explains how big a change this is. The global chief executive of Chinese social media giant Tik Tok, Kevin Mayer, has resigned just three months after joining the company from Disney. This comes after Donald Trump said he'd ban Tik Tok from the US unless its American operations are sold within weeks, as the BBC's Asia Business Correspondent Karishma Vaswani explains.

Jacob Blake: Sport stars protest

Milwaukee Bucks basketball players decided not to take the court in their latest NBA playoff match in protest at the police shooting in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Milwaukee is the largest city in that state and Kenosha is a short drive away. Other teams and players in basketball and other sports have followed suit. We speak to people close to the team about what the walkout might achieve and how significant a moment this is in US sport.

We speak to students in India unhappy at having to take important exams while the coronavirus pandemic continues. They believe they're being put at risk. Meanwhile, we talk to people in some of the handful of countries yet to record a case of Covid-19. They're Pacific island nations and, despite their clean bill of health, they're still feeling the economic impact of the global emergency. We bring together people in the Solomon Islands, Micronesia and Vanuatu.

And we're following two extreme and dangerous weather events. Flash floods after torrential rain in Afghanistan have killed at least 122 people. And Hurricane Laura has hit the coast of the US state of Louisiana. We'll bring you the latest, with the help of BBC journalists and people who have been affected.

Covid-19 therapy controversy

This week Science in Action examines the evidence around the Trump Administration’s emergency use authorisation of convalescent plasma therapy for the treatment of Covid-19. Donald Trump described its US-wide roll-out as ‘historic’ but the majority of scientists and doctors disagree, questioning the scientific basis for the government’s decision. Roland Pease talks to Mayo Clinic’s Michael Joyner, the leader of the convalescent plasma therapy study on which the action was based. The Mayo Clinic trial involved a large number of patients but none of them were compared to Covid-19 patients who were not treated with convalescent plasma. Trials that incorporate that comparison are the only way to properly assess the therapy’s effectiveness. Roland talks to Martin Landray of the University of Oxford who is testing convalescent plasma therapy in the UK’s Recovery randomised control trial, and to medical ethicist Alison Bateman-House of the New York University Grossman School of Medicine.

We also talk to nanotechnologist Marc Miskin about the million-strong army of microscopic robots he’s creating in his lab at the University of Pennsylvania.

Also in the programme: The Russian president says he has set up a reserve police force to support the leader of neighbouring Belarus after weeks of anti-government protests; and the white supremacist who killed 51 people in New Zealand mosques last year has been sentenced to life without parole.

Who has the right to vote in America?

The Voting Rights Act of 1965, a landmark civil rights-era electoral law was designed to protect African-American and other minority voters. It was introduced to remove the many obstacles that were in place to prevent African-Americans from being able to vote. Many states, particularly in the south, used intimidation, local laws and so-called literacy tests to prevent black people from being able to register to vote. In 2010 Shelby County in Alabama attempted to overturn a key part of the law. In 2013 the US Supreme Court upheld their challenge. Now voters who are discriminated against bear the burden of proving they are disenfranchised. Farhana Haider hears from civil rights attorney Kristen Clarke who fought to protect the Voting Rights Act.

The Navalny ‘poisoning'

Alexei Navalny is Russia's best-known anti-corruption campaigner and opposition activist. Today he lies gravely ill in a Berlin hospital. The German doctors treating him say he appears to have been poisoned. Navalny has been a longstanding critic of President Vladimir Putin, and his anti-corruption activities have highlighted the huge asset holdings of Russia’s political elites. His online activism draws tens of thousands of people to the streets across the country in protest against a range of injustices. So what do we know about what has happened to Mr Navalny and his recent activities? Will his hospitalisation galvanise the opposition? And what of the timing - can the Kremlin afford a backlash now when Russia’s closest neighbour, Belarus, is gripped by anti-regime protests? Ritula Shah is joined by a panel of expert guests to discuss how events have changed the picture in Russia.

Japan PM Abe resigns for health reasons

Japanese PM Shinzo Abe has announced his resignation for health reasons. He is perhaps best known for so-called "Abenomics", built on three 'arrows': money creation by the central bank, massive government spending and reforms to the way the economy works. So did they hit their targets? A question for our business correspondent Andrew Walker. Trading on the New Zealand stock exchange has been disrupted for the past four days because of a series of cyber attacks from abroad. Dr Rizwan Asghar of the School of Computer Science at the University of Auckland explains the impact it has had. Plus, as workplaces begin getting back to a new normal, experts say there’s an opportunity to completely rethink how we care for family members in order to benefit them and the wider economy - , not just them, but the broader economy. Suranjana Tewari reports from Singapore. And, the Central Bank of Jamaica have released a song about price stability. Tony Morrison, their songwriter and director of communications, explains why.

March on Washington DC

We'll be following the civil rights protest in the US capital which was organised after the killing of George Floyd. It also comes after this week's unrest over the shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin. The march has been organised on the 57th anniversary of one of the most famous civil rights marches in US history, when Martin Luther King Jr gave his famous "I Have A Dream" speech. We'll reflect on the events of the week and look ahead to how America's racial divide might figure in the upcoming US election.

Dr Megan Murray from Harvard University is with us to talk through the latest coronavirus news, including an apparent drop in cases in Africa and research on the "tiny" risk to school-aged children in the UK. Also, we speak to a journalist in Spain who obtained a widely-shared video showing a bar crowded with young people, no masks, singing and shouting close together. It's now the focus of a national debate around whether young Spanish people are taking restrictions seriously enough.

Could humans live in underwater cities?

The idea of creating underwater habitats has captured the imagination of writers, thinkers and scientists for decades. However, despite numerous grand visions, these dreams of aquatic metropolises have not yet come to fruition. Crowdscience listener and scuba enthusiast Jack wonders whether - given improved technology and the growing environmental pressures facing humans on land - it is time to reconsider the ocean as an alternative permanent living space for humans.

Marnie Chesterton dons her flippers for Crowdscience in search of the oceanographers and architects who have dedicated their lives to designing vessels, labs and underwater habitats. She explores whether oceanic cities remain a sci-fi dream or a realistic solution to some of our modern challenges. Can the oceans’ largely unexplored resources be harnessed to support living underwater?

March on Washington 2020

Thousands gathered in Washington DC to mark the anniversary of the 1963 civil rights March on Washington and to call for social justice. Civil rights and political leaders addressed the crowd, along with the son and grand-daughter of Martin Luther King nd the families of black victims of police violence.

Also in the programme: why Russia has fired one of its most outspoken campaigners against banned drugs, and a priceless German autograph book from the 17th century.

Japan PM Abe resigns for health reasons

Japanese PM Shinzo Abe has announced his resignation for health reasons. He is perhaps best known for so-called "Abenomics", built on three 'arrows': money creation by the central bank, massive government spending and reforms to the way the economy works. So did they hit their targets? A question for our business correspondent Andrew Walker. Trading on the New Zealand stock exchange has been disrupted for the past four days because of a series of cyber attacks from abroad. Dr Rizwan Asghar of the School of Computer Science at the University of Auckland explains the impact it has had. Plus, as workplaces begin getting back to a new normal, experts say there’s an opportunity to completely rethink how we care for family members in order to benefit them and the wider economy - , not just them, but the broader economy. Suranjana Tewari reports from Singapore. And, the Central Bank of Jamaica have released a song about price stability. Tony Morrison, their songwriter and director of communications, explains why.
