Trump in hospital

President Trump is being moved to Walter Reed hospital in Washington DC, having been diagnosed with coronavirus, out of an "abundance of caution" according to the White House. We get the latest from the BBC's Peter Bowes and get the medical opinions of Dr Arthur Kaplan, Professor of Bioethics at New York University. Meanwhile, the rate of unemployment in the US has fallen to 7.9%. But the jobless rate in the world's biggest economy is much higher than it was before the pandemic struck. We ask Loretta Mester, chair of the Cleveland Federal Reserve and member of the Federal Open Markets Committee, about the state of the US jobs market. Also in the programme, from 2024 onwards, contenders for best picture at the Oscars will have to meet new rules designed to broaden the backgrounds of the people who worked on it, on both sides of the lens. We have a special report. And we hear from a man who has filmed an entire opera using iPhones, featuring singers in lockdown all over the world.

All this and more discussed with our two guests throughout the show: Peter Ryan, ABC's Senior Business Correspondent. He's in Sydney. And Alexis Goldstein, an activist and financial reform advocate in Washington DC.

Flintoff, bulimia and the strain of success

Reaction to an astonishing week in the Indian Premier League, including a record run chase, a Super Over and a gravity-defying boundary save.

Plus, as England legend Andrew Flintoff reveals his battle with bulimia, we'll hear the story of Sarah Coyte, the World Cup-winning Australia bowler who took a break from the game to deal with an eating disorder - and returned to win the Big Bash. Some listeners may find this content upsetting.

West Indies head coach Phil Simmons talks about the challenges facing cricket's poorer nations during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The battle over Nagorno-Karabakh

As fighting flares again over the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh, we ask why it's so hard to resolve this conflict, and why a chunk of Armenian-controlled territory came to be inside Azerbaijan in the first place. BBC Russian editor Famil Ismailov is originally from Azerbaijan, and has followed this story for decades.

Pot plants and plant influencers in Indonesia
Houseplants have become a trend among urban Indonesians keen to ease the boredom of lockdown. There’s an industry of plant “influencers” and experts to feed the fascination, shared by BBC Indonesian’s Astudestra Ajengrastri.

The fund-raising campaigns to free captured IS families
Stories are emerging of donation campaigns by so-called Islamic State and Al Qaeda aimed at freeing the wives and children of IS fighters from detention camps in Syria. Abdirahim Saeed of BBC Monitoring tells us what he’s discovered from jihadist social media groups, which are raising funds to smuggle the women out.

Water tensions on the Nile
Ethiopia’s project to create the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance dam on the Blue Nile has fuelled political tensions with Egypt and Sudan. But it’s not just politicians who are affected. Reem Fatthelbab of BBC Arabic spoke to an Ethiopian living in Cairo, and an Egyptian based in Ethiopia, about their concerns.

Brazil meets Ghana
Sonny Nkansa, a Fifth Floor listener with roots in Ghana, explains why the latest in our My Home Town series - from Feira de Santana in Brazil's Bahia state - took him straight home to his small village in Ghana's Volta region.

SAT 03:50 Witness History (w3cszmvh)
The house by the lake

A summer house built by a lake outside Berlin in the 1920s reflects much of Germany's 20th century history. Its first owners fled the Nazis. The Berlin Wall was built through its garden. Then after the reunification of Germany it was recognised as a historic monument and made into an education and reconciliation centre. Alex Stanger has been speaking to Thomas Harding whose great grandfather built the house, and who has written a children's book about its changing place in the world.

SAT 04:06 The Real Story (w3cszcnh)
Turkey flexes on the world stage

The conflict between Azerbaijan and Armenia has taken on a new dimension with the alleged involvement of the Turkish military. Armenia says one of its fighter jets was shot down by a Turkish aircraft over the disputed central Asian region of Nagorno-Karabakh. In the summer, France accused the Turkish navy of confronting one of its frigates in pursuit of a vessel suspected of taking arms to Libya. Meanwhile Turkey's understanding with Russia and Iran over the war in Syria has strained its ties with Washington, as well as several Gulf countries. So do these events suggest that Ankara is becoming more assertive in its foreign policy? Or is this the reaction of a country that finds itself isolated and is being forced to act in order to preserve its interests? Does Turkey still see a future in NATO? And what is the long term vision of president Erdogan; are his critics right to accuse him of trying to return the country to its Ottoman past?

The Boxer - Simon & Garfunkel

Seamus McDonagh is a former boxer. He describes the tumultuous time he had during and after his famous fight with Evander Holyfield in 1990. He also explains why he identifies closely with the lyrics of The Boxer.

Julie Nimoy is the daughter of Leonard Nimoy and co-producer of the film Remembering Leonard Nimoy, which tells the life story of this much loved actor, most famous for playing Mr Spock in Star Trek. The Boxer was his favourite song and Julie describes exactly what it meant to him both throughout his life, and in its closing moments.

Gary Edward Jones is a singer-songwriter who for years rejected comparisons made of him to Paul Simon. Eventually, he embraced the likeness and his life changed after developing a show called Something About Simon - The Paul Simon Story.

Dave Mason is an amateur guitarist who has found deep meaning in The Boxer; meaning that has changed and grown as he has.

US election: Trump and coronavirus

The coronavirus pandemic has claimed more than 200,000 lives in the US and there are more than 7 million confirmed cases. President Trump, whose approach to the virus divides opinion, has now himself tested positive for the virus. As the Americans prepare to vote for a new president or give Donald Trump four more years, coronavirus is one of the issues that will inform voters' thinking.

During the election campaign Nuala McGovern will be hearing from those Americans right across the country.

We bring together Republicans and Democrats in Texas, Georgia and Florida who have all seen their lives impacted by the virus. They share how they think the president has handled the coronavirus crisis. And, two mothers from Idaho and South Carolina discuss how Donald Trump’s presidency has affected their families’ lives - for better and worse - as well as their hopes for the future.

SAT 09:32 Girl Taken (w3ct0xw3)
Girl Taken

03/10/2020 GMT

Girl Taken is a two year investigation to find a little girl taken from her mother in Iran. In this 11 part series, recorded in real time, Sue Mitchell and Rob Lawrie slowly unravel the mystery of what happened to four year old Bru and set out to reunite mother and daughter after years of being apart.

The series starts when Sue Mitchell came into the story, as a reporter for the BBC covering the refugee crisis in Europe. The little girl had hit the media spotlight when her father, claiming to be a widow fleeing Afghanistan under threat of death from the Taliban, asked Rob Lawrie, a volunteer at the Calais camp, for help. He wanted Rob to smuggle Bru to the UK but this failed. Although the story was extensively covered no one knew Bru’s mother was alive and desperately searching for her.

Through the original BBC coverage the mother, Goli, makes contact with Sue and Rob, telling them her daughter was taken from the family home in Tehran without her knowledge or consent. She’d been to the police in Iran but was told they could not help. She then travelled thousands of miles at the hands of smugglers with Bru’s baby sister, Baran. Sickness forced her to stop in Denmark but authorities and refugee charities there could not find Bru. These recordings cover a series of dramatic turns in the search for the little girl.

The recordings also touch on the plight of other women whose children have been taken from them by abusive husbands. It is still a rare thing to happen, but this investigation exposes shortcomings in the asylum process. Since the recordings aired, officials have discovered other cases where men have come into the United Kingdom with a child to help their asylum claims. These claims have not been fully investigated in the past and there are few safeguards to protect those who have suffered as a result.

The series raises the plight of children living in the Calais Jungle and other overcrowded and unsanitary camps. Through Goli’s story we learn more about the control others had in shaping her life. She’d had an arranged marriage to a cruel and controlling man and lived in a society where she had few rights. When she decided to flee Iran and search for Bru, she encountered many dangers, from smugglers to perilous sea crossings in the dead of night with Bru’s baby sister, Baran, in her arms.

The series gives voice to one woman’s story and in doing so raises issues affecting many others. Goli left the only culture she had known to search the world for her little girl and in doing so changed her outlook completely. On reaching the West she immersed herself in the education she had always wanted. As she began making her own choices she starts to experience possibilities and freedoms she had never before imagined. Goli is hopeful that her story could help other women to challenge the injustice and cruelty she has overcome.

“America is divided because Americans think it’s divided” – Seth Gottesdiener

Los Angeles gym owner Seth Gottesdiener is cycling across America to assess the mood of his nation as they approach the 2020 presidential election. Following the death of George Floyd and the subsequent protests, he’s speaking to a cross section of society to see if America has more that unites it than divides it. His conversations will form the basis of a documentary, which will be released in time for the presidential inauguration.

Brazilian surfer Maya Gabeira joins us to reflect on surfing the biggest wave of the year. She tells us the sound of the 22.4 meter high wave crashing at the bottom will live with her forever as she has never been so scared. Gabeira also recalls how she was almost killed by a wave at the same beach in 2013 and how she battled self-doubt in her recovery.

Only ten people have run every London Marathon and Chris Finill is one of them. Ahead of Sunday’s race he tells us about his love of running, how the covid-19 pandemic has affected his preparation and about the highs and lows he’s encountered going the distance over the last 39 years.

We take in the ultimate social lockdown sport moment by joining a 24 hour global netball marathon. We hear from one of the coaches running a live session and from Australian player and founder of Netfit Sarah Wall.

In Sporting Witness, we go back to the London Olympics in 2012 when Sizwe Ndlovu became the first black African to win rowing gold.

And with live sport continuing: the BBC’s tennis correspondent Russell Fuller joins us from Roland Garros to discuss the French Open and we’re at Stamford Bridge with Alistair Bruce-Ball ahead of Chelsea’s game against Crystal Palace.

Songs of the Humpback Whale

Songs of the Humpback Whale was released in 1970 and went multi-platinum, becoming the best selling environmental album of all time. But it also became emblematic of the West’s shifting attitudes towards environmentalism, inspiring a global movement to save the whales which continues to this day.

Marking the 50th anniversary of bioacoustician Roger Payne’s unlikely smash hit, this programme considers the legacy of sounds that caught the imagination of the world.

With contributions from the world of music, science and ecology, including the folk singer Judy Collins, Greenpeace Oceans Campaigner Willie Mackenzie, Greenlandic musician Peter Tussi Motzfeldt, marine biologist and electronic musician Sara Niksic, music writer Simon Reynolds and Roger Payne himself.

Musical resistance with Rina Sawayama and Mykki Blanco

Rina Sawayama, Angel-Ho, Shamir, and Mykki Blanco talk about where they get the inspiration to create when they are not performing, trying to be original or not, and the role resistance plays in their music.

Mykki Blanco is an internationally renowned musician, performing artist and LGBTQ+ activist who defined the queer rap genre with their mixtapes Cosmic Angel and Gay Dog Food. This year alone they have completed two albums' worth of material. Shamir is a singer, songwriter, and actor from Las Vegas, now based in Philadelphia. He has just released his self-titled latest album, which is his most intimate to date. Angel-Ho is a performance artist, producer, and singer from Cape Town. Her most recent record, Woman Call, is rooted in “empowering the voice of a woman who is not the perfect mould of society”. And our host of the week is Rina Sawayama. Her album SAWAYAMA will be appearing on many Best Albums of the Year lists – including Elton John’s, who called the album his favourite of the year so far.

The ‘lifeguard’ who saves women on Instagram

Ingebjørg spends hours every day on Instagram, but she’s not posting selfies. She’s trying to save lives.

This softly-spoken 22-year-old has made it her mission to keep an eye on hundreds of desperate young women and girls who post their self-harm pictures and suicidal thoughts on secret accounts that only trusted followers can see.

Many of those involved have eating disorders, depression or other mental health problems. They don’t trust healthcare workers or doctors.

But they do trust Ingebjørg. She can see what they post and she routinely calls the police when she thinks somebody is in danger. It’s earned her the nickname “The Lifeguard”.

Ingebjørg doesn’t work for Instagram. Saving lives isn’t her job, she has no formal training and nobody pays her for what she does. So should the Facebook-owned social network take more responsibility for helping its users?

And what would happen if Ingebjørg wasn’t there?

Also on the programme: US President Donald Trump is doing "very well" in hospital after his Covid-19 diagnosis, his doctors say, but their account has been disputed; the tale of fifty nine sealed sarcophagi and dozens of mummies uncovered in the ancient necropolis of Saqqara outside the Egyptian capital; and following months of negotiations, a peace deal has been signed between the government of Sudan and an alliance of rebel groups aimed at ending years of conflict.

Bloodshed in Mozambique

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

This week the President of Mozambique, Filipe Nyusi, was selected as ‘Person of the Year 2020’ for Africa Oil and Power – awarded for several multibillion dollar gas projects. It’s these projects, in part, which take us to Southern Africa - but not for any celebration. As Andrew Harding reports, there is now a growing insurgency ravaging large areas of northern Mozambique, threatening a fruitful future.

In Lebanon, a new government still hasn’t been formed after the previous one resigned in response to public outrage following a massive chemical explosion in a storage depot at the port in Beirut. Some two hundred people died and thousands were injured. But it’s not just the blast; a devastating economic crisis has seen the value of the currency plunge and the pandemic lockdown forced nearly a third of businesses to close, leaving thousands jobless. Leila Molana-Allen assesses if Lebanon is now a sinking ship as people are leaving in droves.

Next to the Philippines where this week President Rodrigo Duterte lashed out at Facebook after it took down more than 200 accounts accused of promoting pro-Duterte propaganda. Opposition politicians, human rights activists and journalists have reported receiving threatening posts. But a group was formed, to stand up to the abuse: The Troll Patrol. Our man in Manila, Howard Johnson, went to meet one of them.

Chile, which stretches along South America’s Pacific coast, is famous for its fruit and wine. The grapes are grown in the country’s central region, which has been getting so dry over the past ten years, that scientists call it a ‘mega-drought.’ But how do you farm without water? Jane Chambers visited the Til Til region, northwest of the capital Santiago, to find out how the residents are coping with the agricultural crisis.

The US elections: A faith perspective

Religiosity has always been a key factor of who takes charge in the White House. US presidents have been invoking faith and God ever since George Washington expressed his “fervent pleas to this Almighty Being who rules the universe” in his 1789 inaugural address.

This year, more than ever eyes are on who the religious voting banks will decide as their candidate of choice for the upcoming presidential election. Does Trump remain the choice of evangelicals or has some of his statements and behaviour proved a turn off? And will Biden’s Catholic faith help him or do his liberal values on topics such as abortion put him out of favour.

Journalist Colm Flynn speaks to religious people across the United States to get a sense of the role faith will play in determining who will become the next President of the United States.

Ali Smith: How to Be Both

A fast-moving, passionate, genre-bending work of art that both dazzles and entertains.

This month, World Book Club discusses the much garlanded novel How to Be Both with its acclaimed British author Ali Smith and her fans around the world. Still not able to gather together in a studio, presenter Harriett Gilbert and Ali Smith will be talking remotely to international listeners via all manner of means - phonelines, emails, Skype calls, and social media.

In this playfully ambitious novel, a 15th-century artist, Francesco del Cossa, travels through time and space to discover a grieving sixteen-year-old girl in contemporary England taking comfort in a painting he (or is it she?) created. Or is it all the other way around? And whose story comes first?

Plundering the planet under cover of coronavirus

Some thought Covid-19 would give our planet a breather while many of our movements and industries were restricted, but there are worrying signs that in some parts of the world exactly the opposite is happening.

Emily Thomas finds out how the pandemic has left many people hungry, desperate, and turning to rainforests and wild animals to feed themselves, whilst for others there's growing evidence the virus could be providing cover to make profit at the planet’s expense.

We hear allegations of illegal slashing and burning of an Indonesian rainforest to make way for a palm oil plantation and ask Nestle, the world’s biggest food company, what it’s doing to make sure its products are deforestation free. The head of the UN’s Environment Programme explains why it’s more vital than ever for countries to put environmental protection at the heart of their economic recovery plans, and a conservation worker in Kenya shares fears that decades of animal and environmental preservation work is in danger of being undone.

I discovered my dad was a best-selling sex writer

Sara Faith Alterman was eight when she accidently discovered that her prudish dad was secretly a globally successful writer of adult books. Growing up, it was never discussed, but when he was dying of Alzheimer's in his late 60s, he asked Sara to help him write again before it was too late.

Sara Faith Alterman’s memoir is called Lets Never Talk about this Again.

India’s growing education divide

In India, some schools have begun to partially reopen after months of closure. But for most of the country’s 320 million students, education has remained severely impacted since the lockdown began. While urban areas recorded an exponential increase in e-learning, the smaller towns and villages struggled to continue education in any form. Nearly 75 percent of children found themselves on the wrong side of the digital education divide, with no internet access. In rural parts of the country, the situation turned worse, with many children forced into income-generating labour and even early marriage.

So, how can India bridge the widening gap in education? Is e-learning for schools here to stay? And what can the government do to offer better infrastructure and learning services?

In this edition of WorklifeIndia, we discuss the stark learning gap amongst the world’s youngest population.

The Sun, Our Star

The Sun, Our Star: Health and beauty

The Sun’s light defines what we mean by day and night, how we tell time and how we apportion our time, both consciously and unconsciously. The turning of the Earth that wheels us in and out of the Sun every 24 hours seeps into every aspect of our biology. In the final programme, Dava Sobel recalls the 25 days she spent as a human subject in a study of circadian rhythm. The lab was housed at Montefiore Hospital in the Bronx, NY, but it could have been anywhere, sealed and self-contained as it was. We’ll hear what happens when you are light deprived.

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, but it’s a trade-off we Earthlings have to accept: the protective bubble of the Earth’s magnetic sphere and atmosphere provides air to breathe and a shield against harmful radiation, but it distorts our view of the heavens. 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.

In five programmes, author Dava Sobel orbits the sun, getting as close as she dares, to understand the immense relationship we have with our nearest star.

Is Kanye West really running for US president?

In July, billionaire musician Kanye West announces on Twitter that he’s standing as a candidate in November’s US presidential election. After a scramble to meet the registration deadlines, his name is on the ballot in fewer than 20 states. His manifesto is confusing, his motive unclear.

In the past, Kanye West has been a vocal supporter of president Donald Trump. And it seems his campaign is being run largely by those with close ties to the Republican party. The Democrats say his entry in the race as an independent third party candidate is a dirty trick by Republicans. Others claim it’s simply a publicity stunt to promote his new album.

But, in battleground states, where every vote counts, could his celebrity status have a significant impact on the election result?

How seriously should we take Kanye West’s run for president? Kavita Puri finds out from our expert witnesses, who include professors of African-American studies at US universities, a Washington-based politics reporter and a Democratic pollster and strategist.

Portland, prisons and white supremacy - part one

Portland Oregon has a reputation as one of the United States’ most liberal and tolerant cities. Since the death of George Floyd, it has been at the forefront of protests and violence as anti-racist demonstrators and far right groups have battled with each other and with the police. Yet these tensions are nothing new.

In 2016, the killing of a young black man sparked a national debate about white supremacy. Nineteen-year-old Larnell Bruce died after a white man called Russell Courtier deliberately drove his car at him. A trial for murder and a hate crime followed, and exposed a culture of white supremacy in Oregon, rooted in the state’s history and thriving today despite its easy-going image. Mobeen Azhar follows the trial of Russell Courtier and investigates how the prison system has become a recruitment ground for racist gangs.

Mobeen reveals the disturbing details of what happened to Larnell Bruce when he encountered Russell Courtier outside a convenience store in one of Portland’s most deprived neighbourhoods. Then, as the murder trial gets underway, we learn that Russell Courtier had once joined a white supremacist gang and continued to bear its insignia on his clothes, and tattooed on his body. However, new evidence emerges to suggest that the case might not be as straightforward as it first appeared.

This programme was adapted for radio from the feature-length TV documentary, “A Black & White Killing: The Case That Shook America”, made by Expectation Entertainment.”

Elizabeth Fry: 'The angel of prisons'

Life behind bars in English prisons in the early nineteenth century was, to put it mildly, grim. Prisons at the time were often damp, dirty and over-crowded. Common punishments included shipping convicts to colonies like Australia - and many crimes carried the death penalty. And the poor suffered most of all, because they couldn’t buy privileges like extra food rations. Into all this walked a woman known as the "angel of prisons", Elizabeth Fry. She was one of the major driving forces behind a new way of thinking about prisons – one that stressed that improving conditions for prisoners and treating them with humanity would lead to better outcomes and lower re-offending rates. A Christian philanthropist from a large Quaker family, her ideas were taken up across much of Europe, and she became something of a celebrity in Victorian England.

Joining Rajan Datar to discuss her work and legacy are:

Averil Douglas Opperman, author of a biography of Elizabeth Fry called 'While It Is Yet Day'; Criminal barrister, Harry Potter, author of 'Shades of the Prison House – A History of Incarceration in the British Isles'; And Rosalind Crone, historian and author of 'The Guide to the Criminal Prisons of Nineteenth-Century England'.

What makes stuff sticky?

What makes things sticky? Listener Mitch from the USA began wondering while he was taking down some very sticky wallpaper. Our world would quite literally fall apart without adhesives. They are almost everywhere – in our buildings, in our cars and in our smartphones. But how do they hold things together?

To find out, presenter Marnie Chesterton visits a luthier, Anette Fajardo, who uses animal glues every day in her job making violins. These glues have been used since the ancient Egyptians –but adhesives are much older than that. Marnie speaks to archaeologist Dr Geeske Langejans from Delft University of Technology about prehistoric glues made from birch bark, dated to 200,000 years ago. She goes to see a chemist, Prof Steven Abbott, who helps her understand why anything actually sticks to anything else. And she speaks to physicist Dr Ivan Vera-Marun at the University of Manchester, about the nanotechnologists using adhesion at tiny scales to make materials of the future.

Is it time to rethink the electricity grid?

Are our century-old grids fit for the era of solar and wind power, or is a completely new kind of electricity transmission needed?

Justin Rowlatt looks at the mess in California, where President Trump has blamed rolling blackouts on the state's rush to embrace renewable energy. But former regulator Cheryl LaFleur says one big reason is California's poor integration with neighbouring electricity grids. A US government report recommended linking all the nation's grids together, but then the report mysteriously disappeared - investigative journalist Peter Fairley explains why.

Meanwhile Britain is looking to integrate its own National Grid more closely with the rest of Europe, according to the director of the UK Electricity System Operator Fintan Slye, so that it can handle a glut of new wind power. But why not go one step further and build a global electricity grid? It's a possibility discussed by energy consultant Michael Barnard.

Speaking up about racial injustice

Two women talk to Kim Chakanetsa about their anti-racism campaigns in Lebanon and Netherlands and the emotional toll of speaking out.

Jessica de Abreu is an activist and co-founder of The Black Archives in Amsterdam. As part of the Kick Out Zwarte Piet group she protests against the annual tradition in the Netherlands where children and adults alike dress up with black face to celebrate Santa’s helper ‘Black Pete’. In the past protesters have been attacked and ignored by a country that has long seen this as harmless fun. Massive turnouts at recent BLM inspired protests could suggest a turning of the tide.

Ubah Ali is from Somaliland and currently studying at the American University of Beirut. She talks about Lebanon's ‘kafala’ system, which excludes the predominantly Black migrant workforce from labour laws. She says she’s regularly mistaken for a domestic worker and fights to challenge preconceptions about Black women.

But through personal loss and the violent crisis he saw unfolding on the streets, he found solace in singing and rap. Panshak tells Anu Anand how he overcame his struggles to write a hit song that became one of the most remixed ever in Nigeria and rose to international fame.

This summer Giuseppe Paternò fulfilled his lifelong dream of learning, becoming Italy’s oldest graduate at the age of 97. His only sadness is that his beloved wife isn't around to witness it.

Trump Covid: President criticised over drive-past

President Trump has spent a third night in hospital, where he is being treated for coronavirus, as criticism continues of his decision to leave the building on Sunday night to greet supporters outside. Some doctors are saying he put the lives of his security staff at risk as they travelled in his sealed car with him.

Also, fighting intensifies in and around Nagorno Karabakh - we will hear from reporters on both sides of the border.

And how Senegal's experience of disease like Dengue and Zika has helped it cope with the coronavirus.

Cineworld temporarily closes UK and US cinemas

A dearth of film releases has led Cineworld to close more than 650 UK and US cinemas. Hannah Woodhead is associate editor of movie magazine Little White Lies, and assesses the current health of the movie industry. Also in the programme, on transfer deadline day for Europe's football clubs, and with some predictions of a potential 35% decline in spending by the continent's five biggest leagues, we examine the impact of coronavirus with football finance expert Kieran Maguire of the University of Liverpool. Plus, the BBC's Justin Rowlatt asks if the world's century-old electricity grids are fit for the era of solar and wind power, or whether a completely new kind of electricity transmission is required.

Megadrought in Chile

Drought is a massive problem for Chile. Jane Chambers has been living in the capital Santiago for more than ten years and has seen huge changes in that time. It used to rain frequently in the winter months between June and September and the Andes Mountains which run down the whole of Chile were snow-capped all year round. But that doesn’t happen anymore. Jane reports on the impact of the mega drought on the country and what is being done about it. She talks to climate scientists Sebastian Vicuna, Director of the Global Change Research Centre, at the Catholic University of Chile and to Rene Garreaud, a Professor in the Geophysics Department at University of Chile and Deputy Director of the Center for Climate and Resilience Research, about whether the megadrought is the result of natural weather patterns or of climate change. She meets farmers who are struggling to find pasture for their goats in the village of Til Til, and Francisco Meza, a Professor in the department of agriculture and forestry at the Catholic University in Santiago, who is helping agriculture adapt to low rainfall. And Jane hears about ways to increase the availability of drinking water through small-scale desalination and by capturing moisture from the air.

Trump leaves hospital

President Trump flew for the short trip back to the White House on the presidential helicopter Marine One. "Feeling really good!" Mr Trump tweeted earlier. "Don't be afraid of Covid. Don't let it dominate your life." More than 7.4 million cases of Covid-19 have been recorded in the US. The virus has killed nearly 210,000 Americans.

We talk to Peter Morici, Professor Emeritus of International Business at the R.H. Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland, and Sushma Ramachandran, financial and economics columnist in Delhi.

Meanwhile, cinema chain Cineworld announces it will temporarily close its doors, putting as many as 45,000 jobs around the globe at risk. We hear from the company's CEO Moshe Greidinger and Jonathan Handel, entertainment lawyer at Troy Gould in Los Angeles.

Also in the programme, one of America's largest philanthropic organisations has announced a project to "reimagine" public monuments around the country. Elizabeth Alexander, the director of The Andrew W Mellon Foundation, said they would spend $250m over five years to build monuments, add context to existing ones and relocate others. The project aims to "celebrate and affirm America's diverse histories". It comes amid fierce public debate about monuments in the US, sparked by the Black Lives Matter movement.

Plus - how fashion designers have rubber-stamped comfort as a key trend started by lockdowns and video calls.

Dyslexia: Language and childhood

People with dyslexia around the world reveal the challenges of growing up and working with this condition. We also hear from scientists and educators working at the cutting edge of dyslexia learning and research.

Reading and writing are fundamental tools in most societies, necessary for even the most basic of tasks. For the person with dyslexia this can cause an agonising disjuncture from an early age. Many dyslexic people will recall the difficulties of decoding words, the horror of the spelling test, the forgetfulness, and the shame of struggling with things that other people find so simple.

Educators, neurologists and linguists have different approaches, but research shows that the language we learn to speak and write has an impact. In this first programme Toby Withers who is dyslexic himself, reveals the challenges of learning English, with all its inconsistent rules and odd spellings. He talks to the subject of a ground-breaking study into bilingual dyslexic children – Alex - who is dyslexic in English but not in Japanese. From Hong Kong University he discovers how dyslexia in character-based language systems is different to dyslexia in English.

And Siva Vaidhyanathen, author of a book 'Antisocial Media: How Facebook Disconnects Us and Undermines Democracy' explains why Facebook can't stop the spread of toxic content without undermining its business model.

Roller coaster designer Daniel Schoppen

Inside a simple, white walled office in one of the world’s smallest countries, Daniel Schoppen is busy designing roller coasters that will scare, excite and delight riders from all over the globe.

Swiss journalist, Sarah Fluck, travels to Liechtenstein to meet the German born rollercoaster designer as he puts the finishing touches to his latest creation, ‘Taiga’, for Linnanmäki Amusement Park in Helsinki, Finland.

With the park located just north of the city centre on top of a rocky terrain, placing the coaster was always going to be a challenge. Have the limitations of a small footprint
impacted on Daniel’s plans to create Finland’s longest and fastest ride yet?

Sarah then joins Daniel as they travel to Linnanmäki to experience his new creation for the very first time, questioning whether roller coaster design is mere mathematics, or indeed a
piece of art?

Nettie Washington Douglass tells Anu Anand what it's like to carry the names and bloodlines of two African-Americans who were born into slavery but famously devoted their lives to fighting it, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Nettie descends from pioneering educator Booker T Washington and the abolitionist and orator Frederick Douglass. Her influential ancestors inspired her to raise awareness about modern-day slavery by setting up the Frederick Douglass Family Initiatives.

Award-winning Haitian photographer Dieu Nalio Chery came face to face with a bullet while on assignment. He managed to capture the astonishing moment on camera and it was part of a set of photographs nominated for this year's Pulitzer Prize.

The measures are scheduled to run for two weeks, and whilst restaurants can remain open, they must follow new social distancing and hygiene rules, as Greg Marchand, who runs the famous Frenchie restaurant explains. And we look at the likely economic impact of the latest moves with Sophie Pedder, Paris bureau chief at The Economist. Also in the programme, Britain's prime minister Boris Johnson has said that in 10 years' time, he wants offshore wind energy to power every home in the UK.

Coronavirus conversations: Bereaved families on Trump's response

US President Donald Trump has returned to the White House to continue his treatment for coronavirus after a three-night hospital stay. Since leaving he has told Americans not to fear Covid-19, and been criticised by Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden for downplaying the severity of coronavirus. But what do the families of those who have died from Covid-19 think about the President's response?

Also, we invite a medical expert to join us each day to help us with the latest developments on Covid-19 and to answer listener questions. We’ll ask Dr Isaac Bogoch of Toronto University for his take on the President’s treatment. We’ll also think about recovery, including what’s called “long covid”: where many sufferers are experiencing lasting fatigue, pain and breathlessness, causing a debilitating effect on their lives.

And a top trend worldwide on Twitter today is #dprkontrol. It follows controversial new labour laws in Indonesia, which have left people concerned about workers rights and environmental regulations. We’ll explain the background to the story.

Can AI predict criminal behaviour?

For at least two decades now police forces have been using crime data tech to analyse crime patterns and therefore reduce crime rates, but they have not been able to predict who may have carried out a crime. Now the Sheriff’s office in Pasco County, Florida is using what it calls ‘intelligence led policing’ to do just that. Could AI algorithms really identify offenders? Not according to Kathleen McGrory, Deputy Investigations Editor at the Tampa Bay Times who has been researching this mysterious tech that the local law enforcement agency has been using. Similar schemes have been scrapped in LA and Chicago but continue in Pasco County. We asked for an interview with the Pasco County Police Sheriff and one of the engineers behind the tech – but did not receive a response.

The rise of the Honjok lifestyle in South Korea
Honjok is the term used by those Koreans who decide to live, eat, drink, and undergo most activities on their own, and are happy when they are alone with themselves. This movement started in the first half of the 2010’s and has been growing in parallel with South Korea's rate of smartphone ownership and the emergence of on-demand shopping and social media. It would seem that tech adoption is one of the main factors that helped elevate Honjok into a national movement. Reporter Silvia Lazzaris has been delving into the online world of Honjok.

Could data unions give you some control and gain from your personal data?
Would you like to make money from your Google search history? A new platform to democratize our data by tech start up Streamr will allow individuals to take control of their personal data and even gain financially from it. Until now, most of the data we generate browsing the web and using smart devices is controlled by a few giant corporations. It’s also sold without us receiving any share of its value. The Streamr platform enables developers to create their own data unions (such as Swash, which has a growing user base, and allows people to earn money as they browse) to decentralize control of data away from big tech and back to the individual. These data unions can also significantly improve the quality and security of data sets. Shiv Malik, Head of Growth at Streamr, is on the programme to explain how data unions work.

The programme was presented by Gareth Mitchell with expert commentary from Ghislaine Boddington.

Paris closes bars to combat coronavirus

Paris has shut bars after the French government raised the city's coronavirus alert level. The measures are scheduled to run for two weeks, and whilst restaurants can remain open, they must follow new social distancing and hygiene rules, as Greg Marchand, who runs the famous Frenchie restaurant explains. And we look at the likely economic impact of the latest moves with Sophie Pedder, Paris bureau chief at The Economist. Also in the programme, Britain's prime minister Boris Johnson has said that in 10 years' time, he wants offshore wind energy to power every home in the UK. We find out how realistic a pledge that is with Tom Burke, chairman of green think tank, E3G. How has the homewares giant Ikea fared through the coronavirus era? We hear from Jesper Brodin, chief executive of Ingka Group, which owns most of the Ikea stores around the world. Plus our regular commentator Pilita Clarke examines the impact on workplace equality of the hybrid style of working that has emerged during the pandemic, with key workers based in offices but many other people working from home.

US tech giants accused of 'monopoly power'

A report backed by US Democratic lawmakers has urged changes that could lead to the break-up of some of America's biggest tech companies. The recommendation follows a 16-month congressional investigation into Google, Amazon, Facebook and Apple. The BBC's James Clayton explains what's behind the report. Also in the programme, US President Donald Trump has said he is ending negotiations over a Covid-19 relief bill, and will only resume talks after the election. A significant number of bars in Paris have been forced to close for the next two weeks, as journalist Sophie Pedder explains. We take a look at how the Coronavirus pandemic is hitting low-income students, and might provoke long-term changes in the education system overall, with Eloy Ortiz Oakley of California Community Colleges. And a 400-strong ensemble of freelance musicians has played outside the UK Parliament to highlight the plight of the music industry during the current pandemic. Violinist Nicola Benedetti attended to support to the performers, and explains what they are trying to achieve.

All through the programme we'll be joined by political reporter Erin Delmore in New York and the Financial Times' Robin Harding in Tokyo.

Climate Wars

Darfur: The world’s first climate change war?

In a five-part series for the Compass, former Army Major Will Robson investigates how climate change is fuelling conflict across the globe, from guerrilla raids on farmer-herders in Africa to a chilling new Cold War in the Arctic. He’ll be speaking to both climate and conflict experts to unravel the complicated threads that connect climatic changes, violence, war and global insecurity.

In the first episode, he focuses on what has often described as the first climate change war – the conflict in Darfur in Western Sudan – and hears from farmers and pastoralists who have returned to their war-ravaged lands to try to rebuild among the challenges of desertification and climate change.

Joseph Henrich, a Harvard professor whose fascination with human evolution and anthropology has brought him to a radical conclusion. He says Western societies preoccupied with the individual not the collective are weird, and the cultural power of the West has skewed our view of what is normal.

Does big tech need a reboot?

A leading Silicon Valley boss says big tech companies need more empathy and diversity. Maelle Gavet, is a French-born tech entrepreneur with experience in building firms in her native France, India, Russia, South Africa, and now as chief operating officer of online real-estate broker, Compass.Inc. She's been listed as one of the most influential women in US tech. In her new book 'Trampled by Unicorns' she critiques what she sees as the cultural deficits of Silicon Valley and says that these companies cannot be relied upon to self-regulate. This comes as a report backed by Democratic lawmakers has urged changes that could lead to the break-up of some of America's biggest tech companies. But James Ball, an award-winning investigative reporter, and author of a new book himself, 'The System: Who Owns the Internet and How it Owns Us' says we shouldn't be too quick to do this as it won't actually fix the real problems.

Fighting racism on the dancefloor

New laws were used to stop nightclubs and discos from banning black and ethnic minority customers in 1978. The first club to be taken to court was a disco called Pollyanna's in the city of Birmingham. The Commission for Racial Equality ruled their entry policy racist. David Hinds, vocalist for the reggae band, Steel Pulse, spoke to Farhana Haider for Witness History in 2015 about the racism in Birmingham's club scene in the 1970s.

We found our baby on the subway

In 2000 Danny Stewart found a newborn baby boy, tucked in the corner of a New York subway station on his way home from work. The discovery hit the headlines, but when no one came forward to claim the baby the family court judge asked Danny if he would like to adopt him. Danny and his partner Peter Mercurio had never discussed raising a child together, but soon found themselves on an extraordinary journey.

Touch Test results

In these days of Covid-19 and social distancing, one thing that many of us are missing is being able to touch other human beings. Claudia Hammond reveals the results of the world's largest study on the topic of touch - the Touch Test. 40,000 people from a hundred and twelve countries took part. Professor Michael Banissy of Goldsmiths, University of London, led the analysis of the Touch Test and he explains the findings on who likes touch and who doesn't, and who feels they don't get enough touch. Claudia discusses these results and how much of a difference culture make to our attitudes towards this neglected sense with Michael and with touch researcher Juulia Suvilehto, from Linkoping University in Sweden, and Suddha Bhuchar, an actor and playwright working with the arts organisation Revoluton on a series of monologues on the topic of touch. Claudia also talks to Zahra and Hasina at the Pink Diamond Martial Arts club in Luton, who are using touch to build confidence.

THU 02:32 Assignment (w3csz6lp)
Portland, prisons and white supremacy - part two

The second part of this two-part documentary continues the story of Portland, Oregon and its struggle with white supremacists.

Portland has a reputation as one of the United States’ most liberal and tolerant cities. Since the death of George Floyd, it has been at the forefront of protests and violence as anti-racist demonstrators and far right groups have battled with each other and with the police. Yet, in 2016, the killing of a young black man sparked a national debate about race hatred. Nineteen year old Larnell Bruce died after a white man called Russell Courtier drove his car at him. A trial for murder and a hate crime followed, and exposed a culture of white supremacy in Oregon, rooted in the state’s history and which endures today despite its easy-going image. In this two-part documentary for Assignment, Mobeen Azhar follows the trial of Russell Courtier and investigates the issues it exposed.

Part Two follows Mobeen as he leaves the courtroom to meet Portland’s white supremacists and find out how they operate. He discovers that violent gangs are thriving because of the very institution meant to prevent crime – the prison system. Then, it is time for the verdict.

(This programme was adapted for radio from the feature-length TV documentary, “A Black & White Killing: The Case That Shook America”, made by Expectation Entertainment.)

Are shares in Elon Musk’s Tesla vastly overvalued?

In 2018, the electric car maker, Tesla, was struggling to get the Model 3 electric vehicle off the production line. Its CEO, tech entrepreneur Elon Musk, was working up to 22 hours a day on the factory floor, trying to solve a host of problems on the car he’d bet the company on. It was close to running out of money.

Two years later, the company’s doing better. It says it will grow 30-40% this year.

No surprise then that Tesla’s share price has gone up. But the amount may surprise you – up eight fold in the last year, to $400 a share. Making it the most valuable car company in the world.

It’s now worth more than Toyota, Volkswagen and Honda put together. But yet it still manufactures only a fraction of the cars they make.

So are shares in Elon Musk’s Tesla vastly overvalued? Sumant Bhatia finds out from our expert witnesses, who include a Tesla owner who’s a shareholder and superfan, a fund manager who thinks the shares are in a bubble, an investor with millions of dollars in Tesla and an expert in electric vehicles.

Manuela Saragosa hears from reporter Vivienne Nunis in Venice. Pre-covid, Venice was the poster city for over-tourism. Cruise ships towered over the city’s fragile, historic buildings, filling the air with their exhaust fumes. Many campaigners wished to see the back of them. The pandemic has granted those campaigners their wish. But it’s come at an economic price. And it’s highlighted the cruise ship industry’s precarious future. Manuela also speaks to Simon Calder, travel expert, about the prospects for this hard-hit sector of the industry.

Writer Jorge Luis Borges: Mixing the magical with the mundane

‘We accept reality so readily - perhaps because we sense that nothing is real.' A typically paradoxical quote from the Argentinian writer Jorge Luis Borges whose works have become classics and an influence not just on many Latin American novelists but on countless authors around the world. Yet although he is one of the most analysed figures in literature, even his greatest fans struggle fully to explain his writing. So who was Jorge Luis Borges? And what is it that makes his writing so compelling?

To find out, Bridget Kendall talks to three Borges experts: Dr. Patricia Novillo-Corvalán, from the University of Kent, author of Borges and Joyce, An Infinite Conversation; Prof. Evelyn Fishburn, from University College London, author of Hidden Pleasures in Borges’s Fiction; and Edwin Williamson, Professor at Oxford University and editor of the Cambridge Companion to Jorge Luis Borges.

Africa's football revolution

In 1999, ASECS Mimosas, one of the biggest teams in Ivory Coast, shocked the world of African football by fielding a team of youth players in the final of the African Super Cup. The youngsters had been handpicked and trained by French coach Jean-Marc Gillou, and with their speed and tactical sophistication they inflicted a shock defeat on the Tunisian side, Esperance. The ASECS Mimosas team is credited with modernising the African game, and bringing African talent to the attention of the biggest clubs in Europe. Robert Nicholson talks to Kolo Toure, who played in that African Super Cup final and later starred for Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City. The programme is a Whistledown Production.

Facing fat hatred

Does it feel uncomfortable calling someone fat because we think there is something bad about fatness? And if so - does that come from a concern about health, or is it something more insidious? Emily Thomas examines how society sees fatness - exploring the idea that we live in an inherently fat-phobic world. We hear from those who say viewing fatness as a health problem alone, obscures some uncomfortable truths about poverty, racism, misogyny and ourselves. What would a less fat-phobic world look like?

Sarajevo Siege - the band that drowned out the bombs

By 1994, the Bosnian capital of Sarajevo had been under siege for two years. Sniper fire and shelling were a daily threat to the residents stuck in the city. Though life was tough, artistic creativity flourished. The heavy metal community was one particularly resilient music scene. Whilst there were still local gigs there was a hunger for something bigger, to know the rest of the world had not forgotten them.

A group of firefighters and UN peacekeepers, decided that the city needed a big name rock act to keep morale up. Only one rock star was willing to do it, Bruce Dickinson, the frontman of Iron Maiden. The organisers got a venue, and petrol for their power generators. But there was one particular challenge they had to overcome - how do you get a rock star into a city surrounded by warring armies?

Kamala Harris v Mike Pence: Why this vice-president debate matters

With just 27 days to go before election day, more Americans will vote by mail than ever before, because of Covid 19. This debate mattered not just because it was the first and only debate between Donald Trump and Joe Biden's deputies but because, given the age of the Presidential candidates, they are seen as possible future occupants of the Oval Office. We hear from Elizabeth Harrington, on the Republican side and from Xochitl Hinojosa Democrat side.

Also on the programme: The President of Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro, ends Operation Car Wash, a six year inquiry into corruption which has put some of the country's most high profile business and political figures behind bars; American poet Louise Gluck wins the Nobel prize for Literature; and Iran's greatest living classical singer, Muhammad Reza Shajarian has died. We hear from Iranian academic Nahid Siamdsout on his significance as a cultural figure.

Do Covid–19 mutations matter?

Data from clinical investigations has suggested that a specific mutation in the SARS-Cov -2 virus has made it more transmissible. This finding is now supported by molecular biology work. Ralph Baric from the University of North Carolina led a team comparing the form of the virus which first emerged from China with the mutated type now prevalent word wide.

Bats are known to carry many different types of viruses, horseshow bats specifically carry coronaviruses, apparently without any ill effects to themselves. However some viruses do affect or even kill bats. Daniel Streicker from the University of Glasgow says more research in this area may help find those bat viruses most likely to jump to humans.

Malaria is no stranger to Africa, but largely keeps out of urban centres as it’s difficult for the mosquitoes which carry the parasites to survive there. However an Asian mosquito which is better adapted to life in the city is now threatening to move in. Entomologist Marianne Sinka

Alleged plot to kidnap Michigan governor foiled

The US authorities have filed charges against 13 members of two militia groups in Michigan in connection with an alleged plot to kidnap the state governor, Gretchen Whitmer. The FBI accused six conspirators of planning to abduct Mrs Whitmer at her holiday home prior to November's election and take her to a remote location to - as they put it - 'stand trial for treason'.

Also in the programme: the students who managed to build a car out of recycled plastic; and, with the future of the presidential debates up in the air, who stands to gain?

The end of the oil era

How will the energy transition transform geopolitics? Which countries will be the winners and losers?

The answers may not be as obvious as you might think - not at least according to Jason Bordoff, a former energy advisor to President Obama, and director of Columbia University's Center on Global Energy Policy.

In a long interview with Manuela Saragosa, he explains why the future may not be so bleak for oil producers, how the transition could be bumpy and last decades, and why even once the world has finally weaned itself off fossil fuels, a future energy based on clean renewable energy could bring a whole new series of risks with it.

In August 1977, the racist National Front organisation planned to stage a march into Lewisham in South London at a time of high racial tension in the area. The National Front activists were met by a huge counter-demonstration organised by anti-racist campaigners – in the clashes that followed, hundreds of people were arrested and injured before the National Front were forced to withdraw. The so-called Battle of Lewisham is now seen as having halted the rise of the far-right in British politics. Nacheal Catnott talks to Lez Henry, who grew up in Lewisham and witnessed the unrest.

India's Dalits: Fighting for justice

The alleged rape and subsequent death of a 19-year-old woman in India has again shone a spotlight on caste-based violence against the Dalit community – formerly known as “untouchables”. According to official figures, men from India's upper castes rape ten Dalit women a day. Although the northern state of Uttar Pradesh records the highest number of such cases, caste-based violence and discrimination is prevalent throughout the country and in Indian communities around the world. Dalits make up nearly twenty percent of India's population and were given equal protection under the constitution after independence from Britain. But rights groups say while many Dalits have been able to take advantage of quota systems to move up the economic ladder, violence and discrimination against the community is worsening. The current racial justice movement in the United States is inspiring Dalit activists to be move assertive in speaking up for their rights – but what gains can Dalits expect to make? What is at the core of the discrimination and prejudice against them? And why are Dalit women especially targeted for sexual violence? Ritula Shah and guests discuss the future of Dalits in India.

Testifying against a Neo-Nazi

On the 9th of October, 2019, Mollie S. a Baltimore native, was observing the holiest day of the Jewish calendar, Yom Kippur in the city of Halle, Germany. She decided to take a short break and go for a walk during the proceedings. Moments later a then 27 year old neo-Nazi named Stephan Balliet attempted to bomb the Synagogue and later on a Kebab Shop. Mollie returned to the Synagogue shortly after and saw a body wrapped on the street outside.

On this day, Amie Liebowitz received an unexpected text from her friend Mollie. Mollie lives in Berlin and messaged her to say that she was a victim of the attack but was okay and looked after.

Mollie and Amie kept in contact. They had always been close friends but Amie wasn't aware of the full extent to which Mollie had been affected and was diagnosed with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PSTD). In August 2020, Mollie asked Amie if she would be her support person as she testifies against the neo-Nazi in Magdeburg, Germany.

From catching the train in Berlin together to the court proceedings, practicing her testimony the night before and retracing her steps in Halle, these two friends have a honest discussion about what it's like living with trauma and standing up to someone who wants to kill you because of your faith.

OS Conversations: Nagorno-Karabakh conflict

This year’s Nobel Peace Prize has gone to the UN World Food Programme for its efforts to combat hunger. We reach out to people around the world who have been receiving or processing food aid provided by the agency.

In what's seen as "vaccine diplomacy", China has confirmed it's joining a global coronavirus initiative. We discuss China’s announcement and today’s other coronavirus developments with one of our regular experts, Dr Megan Murray from Harvard University.

And as fighting continues between Azerbaijan and ethnic Armenians over the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh, the enclave in Azerbaijan populated by ethnic Armenians, we hear from young people on both sides of the conflict. Some of them say they’d be prepared to enlist and head to the frontlines.

Why do planets spin?

Crowdscience solves a range of listeners’ cosmic mysteries, from the reason we only ever see one side of the moon, to why planets spin, and discover the answer can be found in the formation of the solar system. We talk to astronomer Dr Carolin Crawford to understand how stars are made, and investigate the art of astronomy with journalist Jo Marshall, hearing how the ancient Greeks came up with a zodiac long before the invention of a telescope, revealing an intimate relationship between humans and the night sky.

Russia hosts Nagorno-Karabakh talks

Armenia and Azerbaijan have begun their first direct talks since clashes over the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh region flared up again nearly two weeks ago. The talks in Moscow between the countries' foreign ministers are being mediated by their Russian counterpart, Sergei Lavrov.

Also in the programme: The Spanish government declares a state of emergency in Madrid to contain the spread of coronavirus; and what do your music tastes say about your personality?

Indian citizens borrow heavily amidst pandemic

The pandemic means India is spending huge sums in support yet many citizens are borrowing. One woman tells us she has turned to money lenders to ease her financial woes, with no idea how much interest is being charged. To make things worse, we hear that heavy rains during the monsoon destroyed crops and have pushed many farmers deeper into debt. And economist Ashwini Deshpande explains that millions of Indian citizens could be pushed below the poverty line. Also in the programme, a court in Madrid has annulled the Spanish government's coronavirus restrictions on the city. We find out what might happen next from journalist Ashish Sharma. The prestigious American university, Yale, is being sued by the Justice Department for allegedly discriminating illegally against Asian and white undergraduate applicants. We get reaction from Irene Vazquez, who is a student at Yale. Plus, we find out how Astrid Fontaine, a female director at carmaker Bentley, is working to increase the diversity of the workforce.
