Thousands gather at historic civil rights march

Tens of thousands of people have gathered in Washington DC demanding racial justice and equality 57 years after the original civil rights march headed by Martin Luther King. We hear from Edith Lee Payne, who was there as a 12 year old and whose photo is one of the most iconic ones taken at the 1963 march for jobs and freedom.

Also on the programme, we go to New Zealand, asking how the county is faring as they come out of a second coronavirus lockdown and deal with what appears to be a four-day cyber attack on their stock exchange.

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.

And, the Central Bank of Jamaica have released a song about price stability. Tony Morrison, their songwriter and director of communications, explains why.

How organisers of one of the world's biggest street parties - the Notting Hill Carnival - are determined the show will still go on, despite coronavirus.

Anderson's 600, Dutch women's cricket and the CPL bio-bubble

On Stumped we discuss whether Jimmy Anderson is the greatest pace bowler of all time after he became the first seam bowler to take 600 Test wickets and we reflect on the third test match between England and Pakistan where Zak Crawley scored 267.

How has the postponement of the Women's World Cup affected teams who were hoping to qualify? The head coach of the Dutch women's national side Sean Trouw joins us to explain what they have been doing during Coronavirus and how they have seen a rise in participation numbers since the start of the pandemic.

Plus one of the biggest parties in world sport, the Caribbean Premier League began last week but how does the bio-bubble in Trinidad and Tobago compare to England? We speak to Danny Morrison who is a journalist there.

Focus on Africa: 60 years on

As BBC Africa’s Focus on Africa celebrates its 60th anniversary, David Amanor talks to fellow members of the Focus team Bola Mosuro and Paul Bakibinga. What makes the programme special to them, what moments and encounters stand out, and what are their expectations for the future?

Uzbekistan: spotlight on a forgotten past
For the past two years, the BBC’s Ibrat Safo has been tracing the stories of a generation of young Uzbek scientists, doctors and academics who were murdered in Stalin’s purges in the 1930s. He tells us how they are being brought back to life after decades of silence.

Getting to know Navalny
Last week Russian opposition politician Alexei Navalny was taken seriously ill on a flight to Moscow. Poisoning is suspected, and he remains in a coma in Germany undergoing treatment. But who is Navalny and what does he stand for? We speak to BBC Russian editor Famil Ismailov to get a closer look at Putin's biggest political rival.

In praise of mariachi
In Mexico City, Plaza Garibaldi is the heart of mariachi music, where flamboyantly suited, sombrero-wearing musicians entertain drinkers and diners alike. But the Covid-19 lockdown also shut down mariachi, and led to mariachi band protests across Mexico. BBC Monitoring contributor Marcos Martínez Chacón explains what mariachi means to him and Mexicans.

SAT 03:50 Witness History (w3cszmvb)
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.

SAT 04:06 The Real Story (w3cszcnb)
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.

‘I hunt trolls’

After she got a death threat, Ginger Gorman dove headfirst into the world of trolls.

It all started when she wrote a light feature about a gay couple who had adopted a child.

Years later, the couple were arrested on child sexual abuse charges, and although she had no knowledge of their crimes, internet trolls swarmed to attack her – even sending her and her family death threats.

Where some would run away and hide, Ginger became fascinated with the world of online trolling and spent five years researching a dark and dangerous online world for a new book.

Not only did she gain insight into the psyche of a troll but one notorious troll actually became her friend.

But what are the implications and consequences of trolls on the people they target? And should social media companies do more about the people who post online threats on their platforms?

SAT 05:50 The Big Idea (w3csxfjt)
Why are some nations rich?

Some countries, like Norway, are rich. Other countries, like Niger, are poor. Why? Why do some countries succeed whilst others fail? There are various possible theories. Some say that certain countries have geographical or resource advantages. Others claim that the real explanation is cultural – in some cultures, it’s said, there’s a stronger work ethic than in others. But the distinguished economist James Robinson, co-author of Why Nations Fail, proposes an alternative answer. He says it’s all to do with how a nation is governed and the strength of its institutions.

August in Minsk

August in Minsk tells the story of the popular uprising in Belarus this August; a fast-changing revolt against the Soviet-style regime of Alexander Lukashenko. He’s been in power for 26 years and claimed victory in yet another election on August 9th. We're telling the story as it happens, with Minsk reporter Ilya Kuzniatsou. Film-maker, sound man and photographer, Ilya has been on the streets from the start, recording as he goes. Through Ilya's chance encounters and snatches of sound, we hear the story from the inside, raw and unfinished as the protest itself. As we go to air, there’s no sign of compromise or negotiation. President Lukashenko is still in power, and the protestors continue to gather.

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.

What price the destruction of ancient sites?

Two ancient and archaeologically priceless rock shelters in Western Australia were destroyed earlier this year by the mining company Rio Tinto. On this episode of Business Weekly we ask whether the punitive measures imposed on senior executives this week are enough. Also could biotechnology transform the way we eat and the way we treat animals? We’ll be investigating the future of food and we’ll find out how a cat food made from mouse meat could be made - without harming any mice. As workers in the UK are seemingly unwilling to return to city centre offices during the Coronavirus pandemic, we’ll wonder what these spaces will look like in the years to come. And we’ll look at the romance scammers who are conning lonely hearts on social media.

Business Weekly is presented by Lucy Burton and produced by Matthew Davies.

SAT 08:06 From Our Own Correspondent (w3csz9px)
Donald Trump and his family make their case for the presidency

Pascale Harter introduces analysis, reportage and personal reflections from correspondents around the world.

Voters in the United States go to the polls in just over two months and this week the Republican Party formally set out its stall for four more years in government. Front and centre of the convention has been the Trump family. To get to the White House it’s important to win states such as Pennsylvania. Jane O’Brien has been there gauging the political mood.

Alexei Navalny lies in a coma in Berlin, as German doctors try to discover more about the poison they suspect caused him to be taken seriously ill on a plane from Moscow to Siberia. But the Kremlin says the Germans are jumping to conclusions about what happened to the opposition leader. No crime has been committed say the Russian authorities. The truth about what happened to Alexei Navalny may never be known. But what is clear is the extreme lengths the Russian authorities will go to in order to discredit the opposition, as Sarah Rainsford reports from Moscow.


The explosion at a port in the heart of Beirut last month blew a hole in what was left of the Lebanese state’s reputation among its people. The country was already in the grip of a currency crisis, the central bank rocked by rumours of a credibility scandal, meanwhile politicians remained too deadlocked to agree the terms of a loan from the International Monetary Fund. Many people had slipped below the poverty line. Then the explosion made 300,000 Beirutis homeless. Security forces met protestors with tear gas. Gabriel Gatehouse has met someone intent on fighting back.

France is in the grip of a second surge in coronavirus cases, the figures show the highest increase since mid-April. Face masks have been made mandatory in Paris. President Emmanuel Macron has urged anyone who is over 70, or with underlying health conditions to stay at home and limit social contact. In bigger cities like Marseille, bars and restaurants are closing early. These new restrictions may have been a blow to some of the people enjoying their freedoms when rules were relaxed. In Paris, Christine Finn had found joy in outdoor swimming, especially with fewer tourists.

The week the sporting world took action

This week on Sportshour with Caroline Barker, we take an in-depth look at the situation in American sport after players in the NBA, WNBA, MLS and MLB refused to play this week following the shooting of Jacob Blake.

Two time NBA Champion Shannon Brown joins us to discuss the events of the last week and what needs to change. His brother – Sterling – plays for the Milwaukee Bucks. They were the first NBA team to say they wouldn’t play and he tells us about speaking to his brother in the bubble. We’re also joined by former Bucks player DeAndre Liggins and former WNBA player Tamara Moore. She gives us her reaction to the shirts worn by the Washington Mystics players that had bullet holes painted on the back . Professor Louis Moore tells us athlete boycotts do work and that he’s now expecting players in the NFL to make their voices heard if the season goes ahead.

We look ahead to the start of the Tour de France with Team Cofidis rider Nathan Haas and Jean Luc-Perez, who won the Race Across France. Haas tells us a stage win is like a “unicorn” for a French team and that uncertainty over rider contracts and 2021 has led to more risk taking among the peloton.

We hear from Sophia Popov after her shock win at Royal Troon to claim the AIG Women’s Open by two shots. The German golfer had not previously won on the LPGA or Ladies European Tour before and she tells us about her ambitions for the future.

This week’s Sporting Witness tells the story of British Olympic medal-winner – Tasha Danvers. She faced a common challenge for women athletes – how to juggle an athletics career with starting a family.

And – we preview the Women’s Champions League Final between Wolfsburg and Lyon, with Rebecca Smith from Copa 90.

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?

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.

Fruit of thy womb

In many religions child bearing is revered. Giving birth can be a way of honouring your deity and strengthening your community. In contrast, infertility can be seen as a punishment.

So what impact does that have on the faith of women who find they’re unable, or unwilling, to conceive? This Heart and Soul hears how this experience has transformed the spiritual lives of four different women - Christian, a Muslim, a Buddhist and a Jew.

The Fruit of Thy Womb is produced by Julia Paul.

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.

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.

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.

Is Covid forcing women out of jobs in India?

India has a poor record of women’s participation in the workforce. Less than a quarter of women were employed before the pandemic, ranking India among the bottom 10 countries in the world in terms of women’s employment.

But the pandemic is making matters worse, with more women than men dropping out of jobs. In fact, recent studies estimate that four out of five women are currently not working in India. The situation is said to be particularly stressful in the informal sector, which employs nearly 80% of all working women.

So, what is the ground reality? What do employment trends in urban and rural areas tell us? And what are the other challenges women face as extra chores are added during the pandemic?

In this edition of WorklifeIndia, we discuss if Covid is worsening the women’s employment crisis, and what can be done to make more Indian women join the paid workforce.

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.

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?

Women who resolve conflict

How do women handle high stakes hostage crises and complex conflicts? Kim Chakanetsa brings together two women who have successfully worked with some of the most dangerous men in the world in order to diffuse a kidnap situation or to try to rehabilitate them back into the community.

Sue Williams is a British hostage negotiator who, over a career spanning almost three decades, has overseen the successful resolution of hundreds of hostage crises. During her time with the UK's Metropolitan Police, she was in charge of both the Kidnap and the Hostage Crisis Negotiation Units. She now works independently, mainly for NGOs and charities operating in dangerous parts of the world. 

Fatima Akilu is a Nigerian psychologist whose work centres on the fall-out from the brutal Boko Haram insurgency in the country’s North East. Since 2009, the militant Islamist group has inflicted a relentless stream of suicide bombings, beheadings and kidnappings in the region. As Director of the Neem Foundation, Fatima works with victims as well as perpetrators in an effort to reintegrate them into the community.

The woman who woke up in the future

In 2008, Naomi Jacobs went to bed in her home in Manchester as a 32-year-old woman. When she woke the following morning, her world had changed. Overnight, her memories had gone. She didn't recognise her home, her life, or even her child. Instead, she believed she was a teenage schoolgirl living in 1992. And she was utterly bewildered by how she had ended up in the future. She told Emily Webb how the diaries that held the key to her past eventually got her back to the present.

Coronavirus conversations: Campus life

As many university students around the world begin to return to face-to-face teaching, we hear a conversation among students in the US, South Africa, Spain and Sri Lanka about the changes and restrictions on campuses.

We also look at the impact of the coronavirus pandemic in India. New figures show that the country's economy shrank dramatically as the coronavirus pandemic shut down the country. We hear from those who have lost their livelihoods. India is one of the worst-affected countries by the coronavirus, with more than 3.6 million confirmed cases. We speak to a doctor about how Indian hospitals are coping with coronavirus patients.

Our medical expert, Dr Eleanor Murray from Boston University, will help to explain some of the latest developments with the virus. We talk about how safe it is to fly during the pandemic following the reports in the UK that passengers on a flight from Greece have to self-isolate after some on board tested positive.

The Life Scientific

Liz Seward

Professor Jim Al-Khalili talks to Liz Seward, Senior Space Strategist for Airbus Defence and Space. Liz's young interest in Science Fiction led to a career designing spacecraft and robots for exploring our own earth, other planets, and the stars.

From a library in the US where the science fiction section stood next to the children's section, Liz took inspiration from Robert A. Heinlien and Arthur C. Clarke through a degree in Physics and Space Science at the University of Leicester to begin a career at EADS Astrium (now part of Airbus), initially as a Thermal Engineer. As Liz explains to Jim, thermal engineering lies at the heart of any successful space mission. Any metal box floating in space has to deal with the searing heat of the Sun on one side and the deep, deep freeze of the cosmos on the other. Engineering solutions to cope with these extremes means the difference between triumph and failure.

Liz has worked on several missions and international collaborations, including a design for a landing (since de-scoped) on Mercury aboard the current BepiColombo mission due to arrive at Mercury in 2025, and the experimental Aeolus satellite that currently keeps our weather forecasters up to speed on global wind dynamics.

A large part of Liz's career was spent with the ESA Martian rover, named Rosalind Franklin, which should have been on its way to the red planet this summer, but has been delayed because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Nowadays at Airbus, Liz works on the strategy of maximizing commercial potential in space, whilst abiding by issues of responsibility around exploration, pollution, and even space traffic management. What if a launch to Mars collides with a long dead weather satellite on its way there? Or that the first detection of life on Mars turns out to be a cold virus from Stevenage?

But as she explains to Jim, miniaturization and cheaper launches suggest a bright future for human activity in space. And one day, it may include vertical satellite launches from Scotland, and even passenger flights from Cornwall.

India suffers record economic stagnation

We hear from businesses across India, as the country suffers a 23.9% fall in its economic growth, the worst on record, amidst one of the biggest single-day rises in coronavirus cases in the world. The start of the American presidential election campaign is in full swing, with the two candidates attacking each other over law and order, rather than the economy. And we'll hear the view from the English countryside on how a social media star stopped fears for the farming industry post Brexit. We discuss all this live with Nicole Childers, who is executive producer of Marketplace radio in Los Angeles, and Madhavan Narayanan, journalist and writer in Delhi.

The Soviet Feminist Army

The Soviet women spreading ideas on women’s equality in Afghanistan

They were highly trained, focused on their mission and dedicated to their goal of promoting women’s equality in Afghanistan. In Afghanistan, they found women activists who had already taken up the struggle for female education and women’s rights.

In Dortmund in Germany, 7,000km from Kabul, Olga Smirnova meets Jamila Nohid, one of the Afghan women activists, who left Afghanistan when the mujahideen took over the country. She reunites her with Saodat Safarova from the former Soviet Union.

As they reminisce, Saodat tells Olga how she jumped at the chance of travelling from the USSR to Afghanistan to work with local women there. It was “a fairy-tale”, she says. Her colleagues were sent into towns and cities, but also into remote and harsh rural areas of the country.

The Soviet-Afghan war was a long, brutal campaign in which many women and children lost their homes and died. This was also a propaganda war. The claims to be promoting socialist ideology and women’s rights were part of it.

With the personal stories of Saodat, Jamila and other women involved in this struggle, Olga asks how far one can impose values from outside as part of an ideological struggle and alongside military brutality.

Presented and produced by Olga Smirnova.

Alan Walker: Behind the mask

Before face masks became compulsory for many of the world’s citizens, the Norwegian music producer and DJ Alan Walker was known for wearing a face covering on stage. It lent an air of mystery to his persona but there’s been no mystery about the popularity of the music he makes. From his first hit Faded, which has been streamed over a billion times, to packed-out stage gigs the world over and recent collaborations with musical giants like film composer Hans Zimmer, Alan – who’s still in his early 20s - has become a global phenomenon.

Recorded during a visit to London on his 2018 UK tour, long before Covid-19 devastated live shows, Alan talks to John Wilson about his early upbringing in the UK, how he creates his music, and the crucial importance of ‘the drop’ to electronic dance music.

The rebel past of a Tibetan Lama

Yeshe Losal Rinpoche is a Lama who runs a monastery and Buddhist centre in rural Scotland. As you might expect his days are filled with meditation and contemplation, but life hasn't always been so serene - he shares tales of a dramatic Himalayan mountain escape, dancing and decadence on the New York disco scene and hanging out with David Bowie.

During her 20s, Vicky Beeching was one of the most successful musicians on America's Christian rock music scene. But Vicky carried a secret; one that she knew would destroy her career if it ever got out.  After years of hiding the truth, she decided to reveal it and the fallout was as bad as she had feared. She's written a book about her experience, it's called Undivided.

Flight simulator ridiculous skyscraper that does not exist
Cam Wilson is an Australian journalist with Gizmodo, he saw the Twitter discussion about Microsoft Flight Simulator’s 2020 huge skyscraper in virtual Melbourne. If you are not a regular pilot, the scene you faced with was a massive building in Melbourne to navigate around – instead of two floors it was 212 floors. Cam wondered if he could find the person responsible – and he did – a snapshot of data with an error has created this unusual scene.

Solar powered laser controlled tiny robots
Scientists at Cornell University have invented a tiny micro robot which is solar powered and moved by laser light. Each bot consists of a simple circuit made from silicon photovoltaics – which essentially functions as the torso and brain – and four electrochemical actuators that function as legs. The researchers control the robots by flashing laser pulses at different photovoltaics, each of which charges up a separate set of legs. By toggling the laser back and forth between the front and back photovoltaics, the robot walks. Eventually the researchers hope to create swarms of microscopic robots crawling through and restructuring materials, or suturing blood vessels, or being dispatched en masse to probe large swaths of the human brain.

The programme was presented by Gareth Mitchell with expert commentary from Bill Thompson.

The Sun, Our Star

The Sun, Our Star

The Sun, our star, the source and sustainer of all life on Earth, is also a death star in the making. To know the Sun is an age-old dream of humankind. For centuries, astronomers contented themselves with analysing small sips of sunlight collected through specialised instruments. They chased after eclipses that exposed otherwise hidden layers of the Sun’s substance, and they launched Earth and Sun-orbiting observatories to monitor our star from space. Today, several satellites ‘watch’ our star from outer space. In August 2018, Nasa’s Parker Solar Probe set off on a mission to go so far as to ‘touch the sun’ for the first time.

Our view of the sun from here is relatively murky. Nevertheless, astronomers have managed to piece together an understanding of the stars, and especially the Sun itself - how it’s constructed, how it behaves, how it came to be, forming from a vast cloud of cold hydrogen gas and the dust of older stars in a sparsely populated region of the Milky Way.

Dava Sobel orbits the Sun, getting as close as she dares, to understand the immense relationship we have with our nearest star. She begins by piecing together what we know of the Sun, visiting the world’s most powerful solar observatory, Big Bear in California.

Can Western universities survive without China?

Some universities fear they have become too financially dependent on fee-paying Chinese students - and thanks to Covid-19, many of them are staying away this year.

Salvatore Babones, an associate professor at the University of Sydney, says Australia is particularly vulnerable to this, while Vivienne Stern of Universities UK says it’s just one of a number of serious concerns for UK and US universities. We also hear from Chinese students already in the UK about whether they think it’s worth continuing.

A beautiful prison

Greenland has been detangling its colonised relationship with Denmark since World War Two. Along the way, each state service and law needs to be rewritten. In 1948, three young Danes were sent to research and write Greenland’s first Criminal Law. They hoped they were writing a blueprint for the world’s first modern prison-less society. Instead their social experiment put the nation in a 70-year-long limbo. Now, Greenland has finally opened its first prison. We hear from Greenlanders inside the building, as they build their own, new prison system from the ground up.

Covid-19 sniffer dogs being trained

Doctors and patients say they have noticed a distinctive smell when someone is infected with Covid-19. And now scientists in the UK are asking people who are being tested for the virus to wear a t-shirt, mask and socks - and then send them back in the post to help train special sniffer dogs. The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine hope that dogs can learn to spot Covid-19 – as well as conditions like Parkinson’s Disease and some cancers.

In our weekly Covid roundup: India has overtaken the USA in the greatest number of Covid cases per day; an international survey indicates that three quarters of people would be happy to be given a Covid vaccine once it’s available.

Our studio guest, New Scientist magazine’s Clare Wilson, talks about face masks and Covid, the eradication of wild polio in Africa, how tricky it is to lose those few extra pounds gained during lockdown – and how mindfulness doesn’t help everyone who tries it.

As students around the world return to their studies, one American university is testing them all every few days for the coronavirus. Boston University (Claudia teaches psychology students at their London base) has re-purposed some of its labs to carry out 6,000 Covid tests a day. They already quarantined some students on campus who tested positive.

Naziha Syed Ali: Pakistan’s fearless female reporter

Journalist Naziha Syed Ali has made a career out of investigating sometimes scandalous abuses of power in her native Pakistan. Publishing in the country’s main English-language daily newspaper, “Dawn”, she has reported – often undercover – on land confiscation, illegal organ harvesting and sectarian violence. Her work has prompted significant action against wrongdoers, most notably when she exposed malpractice in a major Karachi property development, resulting in a Supreme Court case and payments worth billions of dollars. Being female, she says, can help - if only because Pakistan’s patriarchal society is so sceptical about women’s ability to make an impact, which can lull male subjects into a false sense of security. Nevertheless, her job is arduous and frequently dangerous. In this interview for Assignment with Owen Bennett-Jones, she explains what drives her to work in one of the world’s toughest journalistic beats.

Would you buy a T-shirt made with slave labour?

China is accused of detaining millions of people from the Uighur ethnic minority and forcing them to work in factories. Pressure is mounting on foreign businesses to ensure material they source from China does not benefit from that forced labour. Alison Killing, an architect and investigator has found that 268 detention facilities have been built in the Xinjiang province in North-West China in just the last few years. Supply chain expert Kate Larsen says companies are often more at risk of exposure to forced labour than they might realise. But Craig Allen of the US China Business Council says US protections already exist to keep companies away from Uighur labour. And Max Zenglein of the Mercator Institute for China Studies says there are substantial incentives for companies to look the other way.

Smallpox: The defeat of the speckled monster

As scientists around the world look for ways to combat COVID-19, the only human disease ever to be eradicated by vaccination could provide us with some insights.

Since 1979 the world has been free from smallpox. But before the WHO’s concerted effort to eradicate the disease, it claimed millions of victims every year. It’s estimated that 300 million people died from it in the 20th century alone, and those who survived were often left with disfiguring scars or sometimes blind.

Such was its destructive power, some commentators have argued that smallpox changed the course of human history, wiping out indigenous populations and allowing imperial nations to colonise new territories with little resistance.

The English doctor Edward Jenner developed the first vaccine against smallpox in 1796. This procedure laid the foundations for immunisation programmes which have saved hundreds of millions of lives ever since, by giving people protection against a whole range of diseases - not just smallpox.

Joining Bridget Kendall to discuss the history of smallpox are Professor Gareth Williams, author of Angel of Death: The Story of Smallpox; former head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in the US, Dr Bill Foege who worked on the WHO smallpox eradication programme in Africa and India, and Dr Anne-Marie Moulin, author of The Vaccine Adventure.

Margarita Forés: My life in five dishes

She was born into one of the most prominent and wealthy families in the Philippines, but life has not been easy for Margarita Forés.

She was forced to flee her country during President Ferdinand Marcos’ military dictatorship, she battled bulimia as a young woman and has overcome cancer twice. She tells Graihagh Jackson how cooking has helped her cope with some of her toughest challenges, offered a way to win her family’s approval, and helped her prove to herself that she could make it on her own.

Now an award-winning chef and owner of Cibo, a successful chain of restaurants in her home country, she made her mark by blending Filipino ingredients with Italian cooking techniques, after falling in love with the country whilst at a cookery school there.

And she has set her sights on pushing for Filipino food to be internationally recognised, whilst championing local farmers and their ingredients.

The 'bride and groom of the Syrian revolution’

Noura Ghazi is a human rights lawyer from Damascus, campaigning for people and prisoners who were forcibly disappeared by the Assad regime. Right at the start of the Syrian uprising, she met software engineer and activist, Bassel Khartabil. Their love blossomed at anti-government demonstrations and on long late night phone calls. Even Bassel’s eventual arrest couldn’t stop them from getting married through the bars of his prison cell. But when all trace of him disappeared, Noura did everything in her power to find her husband. Hers and Bassel's story is featured in the documentary, Ayouni.
 
Ollie Olanipekun and Nadeem Perera are co-founders of an unusual bird watching club - Flock Together - for people of colour to enjoy nature together and support one another.

Germany under pressure to hit back at Russia after Navalny poisoning

Following the comments by German scientists that the Russian opposition politician Alexei Navalny was subject to a nerve agent attack, there is pressure on German Chanceller, Angela Merkel, to take a tough stance against Russia. There have been calls for her to end support for a joint German-Russian gas pipeline project. Also: there’s been a dramatic rise in carbon dioxide being produced by wildfires in the Arctic, and France plans to spend one hundred billion Euros over the next two years to rebuild the economy.

France's €100 billion stimulus to revive economy

The French government has announced €100 billion of spending after the economy shrank by almost 14% between April and June - the biggest quarterly fall since the end of the Second World War. Thierry Drilhon, President of the Franco-British Chamber of Commerce, tells us the rescue package should re-ignite the economy. McDonald's, makers of the famous Big Mac burger, plan to start legal proceedings against Burger King because their Australian franchise Hungry Jack's have brought out the 'Big Jack' burger. We hear from Michaela Whitbourn, legal affairs reporter at the Sydney Morning Herald newspaper. And with the strain of working during a pandemic taking its toll on the world's workers, Monica Miller has been talking to some people who have turned to new - and sometimes unconventional - methods to manage their stress.

Coronavirus conversations: Dating struggles

We continue our conversation about relationships during the coronavirus pandemic. On Wednesday's edition, we heard some success stories of people finding love, even while the outbreak continues. But what about the people for whom it's a struggle? We speak to some in Zimbabwe and the United States about their experiences of navigating new dates and coronavirus. Also, our coronavirus expert of the day is Dr Emma Hodcroft, answering your questions about the latest news on the pandemic.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel is under pressure to take action against Russia after the accusation that opposition politician Alexei Navalny was poisoned with Novichok. He's being treated in a hospital in Berlin. We find out what the Russian government is saying and how it's being discussed on social media in Russian. Could Germany pull out of a major gas pipeline project between the two countries?

And campaigners in Afghanistan are celebrating the decision to put their mothers' names on their ID cards. Previously only the father's name was included on the card. We speak to one woman who'll explain why it was such an important issue for her.

Nyiragongo - is Goma under threat?

A new survey of the volcano's activity suggests there may be an eruption in the next 4 to 7 years. It's a particular concern for the populations of Goma and Gisenyi, two cites between the volcano and lake Kivu. As we hear from the director of the Goma Volcano Observatory Katcho Karume, the city of Goma in particular has expanded so much that many people now live right next to fissures in the flank of the volcano through which any eruption would likely occur.

Hurricane Laura made landfall in Louisiana's main area of swamp land, missing big urban areas to either side. It was a lucky escape for many, but as hurricane historian Jill Trepanier tells us such extreme weather events do seem to be more frequent and potentially more destructive.

And wildfires ravaging California and other Western US states may have been intensified by changes to global weather systems . Climate scientist Bill Lau says those weather systems in turn have been modified by man-made climate change.

In November 2018 a Chinese scientist announced he had edited the genes of twin girls. The announcement was greeted with horror by many researchers in the field. Now a way to regulate gene editing internationally has been proposed by some of the world's leading scientific institutions. Kay Davies co-author of their report explains the plan.

Faith versus the virus: Pakistan’s struggle

Pakistan’s relationship with religion is the most distinct element of its identity. Be it politics or any other aspect of social & cultural life, religion is the main guiding force.

The country was created in the name of Islam almost a quarter century ago, where the clergy still enjoys the tremendous power. Even during the pandemic, when the holiest mosques & shrines in Saudi Arabia, Iran & Turkey were closed, the clerics in Pakistan refused to shut down the mosques in Ramadan.

The former cricketer Imran Khan’s government tried and failed to stop annual gathering of “Raiwind Tableeghi Jamat” a global Muslim missionary movement in the Eastern city of Lahore, which is thought to have resulted in transmitting the first corona virus case to the Middle East.

And now, weeks before Eid-ul-Adha, cattle markets have sprung up in and around cities, where people in large numbers are gathering to buy animals for sacrifice.

This program gives a picture of a struggle between science and faith in Pakistan. How the voices of doctors and paramedics were lost in religious rhetoric and how the government has been repeatedly backing down under the pressure from the religious leaders. Presented by: Shumaila Jaffery

Why is QAnon going global?

This week President Donald Trump retweeted a false claim posted by a follower of the ‘QAnon’ conspiracy theory, stating that the real Covid-19 death toll is just 6 percent of official figures. Twitter took down the tweet saying it breached their terms and conditions. It’s not the first time the president has promoted messages from supporters of the debunked conspiracy theory that claims - in part - that Mr Trump is leading a top-secret campaign to dismantle a global network of Satan worshipping cannibal paedophiles led by billionaires, celebrities and Democrats. Acts of violence have already been attributed to those backing the outlandish conspiracy theory and the FBI now considers the movement a domestic terrorism threat. While support for ‘Q’ - said to be an anonymous security official with inside knowledge - has been growing in the United States, followers are increasingly showing up in Europe and Latin America. So why has it spread to other countries and what are the QAnon links to foreign groups? Could supporters disrupt politics outside of the US? And is QAnon a harmless online fantasy or a dangerous threat to truth, democracy and public safety around the world? Ritula Shah is joined by a panel of experts.

Why does running water make me need the toilet?

What does science say about controlling urination, and other bodily functions? We tackle three queries about peeing triggers, pooing positions and missing sweat. This episode CrowdScience presenter Marnie Chesterton poses some of the best listener follow-up questions that have landed in our inbox to a panel of experts.

Listener Samuel in Ghana is wondering why watery sounds seem to induce urination. Producer Melanie Brown heads out to survey whether this is the case for individuals in an actual crowd at a public fountain in London. And urologist and trustee of the International Continence Society Marcus Drake talks Marnie through how he uses the sound of running water during his work as a hospital doctor helping patients with common but distressing peeing issues, and the limitations of research into this question.

And he’s not the only listener who wants us to dig deeper into topics we’ve explored on the show before. Anna in Tokyo also got in touch after hearing our show about toilets, to ask if there is a toilet design that is most ‘natural’ for our health. Gastroenterologist Anton Emmanuel explains why small changes in people’s posture whilst pooing can have a significant impact on their quality of life.

Lebanon marks one month since the huge explosion that killed nearly 200 people

People in Lebanon have observed a minute's silence a month after a massive explosion killed almost 200 in the capital, Beirut. Rescue workers are continuing to search for survivors after possible signs of life were detected under the rubble in the city's destroyed port area. Seven people are believed to be still missing.

Plus we'll have the final part of our series on migration into Europe...today, we're on the tiny Italian island of Lampedusa.

And we have an interview with President Trump's new adviser on Covid-19, Dr Scott Atlas

Navalny poisoning jeopardises Russia-Europe gas pipeline

There are calls for Germany to scrap a controversial gas pipeline from Russia after the poisoning of Russian opposition politician Alexei Navalny. We look at why Nord Stream 2 is being built and ask what would happen if Berlin abandons the project. Plus, the rise of the romance scam - how can you tell if someone you've never met is genuine? And we talk to the coach of the national women's football team in Brazil, Pia Sundhage, about the decision to pay her players the same as male footballers.
