SAT 00:06 The Real Story (w3cszcp4)
America's damaged democracy

Donald Trump is ending his presidency with the distinction of being the only president in American history to be impeached twice by the House of Representatives. The behaviour of his supporters in breaking into the Capitol Building, where a session was in place to certify the presidential election, has received widespread condemnation. Several people died. Democrats say the violence was the culmination of President Trump's history of riling up his supporters with misleading claims and outright lies, and it was an attempt to overturn the will of the people who voted for Joe Biden as the next president. Yet many, including some Republican politicians who fled the mob, say the protestors were right to challenge the legitimacy of Mr Biden's victory - even though the claims of mass fraud have been debunked by election officials and rejected by the courts. And despite events, Mr Trump remains popular with a significant portion of Republicans. President-elect Biden takes office under the theme ‘America United’, but it’s clear the country is anything but. So what lies ahead for America’s fragile democracy? With angry and polarised political groups, rampant misinformation, and an absence of dialogue, how dangerous a moment is this for country – and what might pull it back from the brink? Join Ritula Shah and guests as they discuss the impact of a tumultuous week in Washington DC.

SAT 02:06 From Our Own Correspondent (w3csz9qq)
Australia's beauty - and its terrors

Australians are used to taking the power of nature seriously - as the environment and the creatures within it can be so dangerous. 2020 began in flames, as bush fires tore through the landscape, and ended in floods, as cyclones flattened and drenched much of the more populated parts of the coastline. And with memories of those disasters still fresh, the country is now having to deal with a far tinier (but still lethal) menace: coronavirus. Phil Mercer reflects from Sydney on resilience and robustness in the face of all these threats.

Pascale Harter introduces this and other dispatches from BBC correspondents, reporters and writers around the world.

Indonesia's geography also offers plenty of challenges for people who need to get around this vast archipelago quickly and safely. Over the past few decades, the explosive growth of a middle class who can afford to take domestic flights has fuelled a boom in small airlines - but have the airport infrastructure and safety oversight been good enough to keep up with passenger numbers? After the recent Sriwijaya crash, in which 62 people were killed, Rebecca Henschke remembers covering far too many similar incidents.

Chris Page talks to one of the survivors of Ireland's now-notorious system of mother and baby homes. For decades, these institutions took in unmarried mothers, promising to care for them during and after their pregnancies and find good adoptive or foster homes for their children. But conditions inside the homes were harsh and there were many cases of abuse, neglect and disease within them. Growing public concern about this history led to an official enquiry - and now official apologies from the Irish government and the country's Catholic Church for what went on inside.


And Mary Harper reveals some new developments from Somalia after her most recent visit there. While foreign news often concentrates on the country's al-Shabaab jihadist group, the regular suicide bombings and its food insecurity, there are other visible trends. These days, some militiamen are turning to extortion rackets. There's a boom in the construction sector. And everywhere there are people with ingenious and innovative ideas, just looking for ways to make life better.

Beirut port blast: Five months on

On 4th August last year 2,750 tonnes of ammonium nitrate blew up in a Beirut port warehouse. The explosion killed 200 people, injured thousands, and destroyed the port. Last month the public enquiry into the blast charged four politicians with negligence, including Prime Minister Hassan Diab. BBC Arabic’s Carine Torbey got an exclusive interview with him.

Cuba’s “sovereign” vaccine
Cuba has entered a new partnership with Iran to trial a new coronavirus vaccine. Its high hopes are summed up in the name, Soberana O-2, or "sovereign". BBC Monitoring's Luis Fajardo in Miami considers what the vaccine and its name mean to Cubans.

Kashmiri papier-mâché 
Srinagar in Indian-administered Kashmir used to be famous for its papier-mâché artefacts. But decades of insurgency and lockdowns have left producers struggling to survive, as BBC reporter Aamir Peerzada discovered.

The beach that lost the sun
The BBC’s Fernando Duarte tells us about Balneário Camboriú in Brazil, where shadows cast by the skyscrapers that line the sands make it impossible to sunbathe for most of the afternoon. Is the answer to widen the beach?

South Africa’s alcohol ban
Following South Africa's re-imposition of an alcohol ban as part of Covid-19 restrictions, the BBC's Vumani Mkhize reflects on the impact this is having, and the background to his country’s toxic relationship with drink.

SAT 03:50 Witness History (w3cszmw4)
Estonia's singing revolution

The Estonian rock musician Tõnis Mägi once attracted huge crowds across the USSR with a string of disco hits and a song glorifying the 1980 Olympic Games. He was a poster boy for clean cut Soviet youth with his blond hair and cheeky smile.

But in 1987 Tõnis returned to his native Estonia to write his own songs, in his own language. Times were changing. Mikhail Gorbachev’s glasnost or openness policy allowed Estonians to talk about things which had been taboo for decades. Tõnis tells Lucy Ash that he could smell freedom in the air.

Like its Baltic neighbours, Lativa and Lithuania, Estonia was independent between the world wars but suffered devastating losses when it was invaded by Stalin then by Hitler's troops and then reconquered by the Red Army.

In the tiny country of 1.3 million, many resented the Russians and longed to escape from Communist rule. People worried that their language and culture were disappearing and they wanted to promote Estonian nationhood, particularly through music. With his rock anthem Koit (Dawn) and other songs, Tõnis became the voice of a generation of Estonians, the voice of the Singing Revolution.

Coronavirus: Young widows

Each Covid-19 death has a tremendous personal impact on loved ones. Host Nuala McGovern talks to three women who have lost their husbands to the disease. Their Facebook group 'Young Widows and Widowers of Covid-19’ is supporting others in the same situation. They call it “the club that nobody wants to join”.

We also hear from three people in South Africa, Australia and the US who share the unexpected social consequences - both positive and negative - of wearing face masks when you have a facial disfigurement or difference.

SAT 05:32 The Cultural Frontline (w3cszj9h)
Douglas Stuart and Fashion for Change

You might know him as this year’s Booker Prize winner, but author Douglas Stuart is also a fashion designer. He tells Nawal Al-Maghafi about how fashion changed his life, taking him from his native Glasgow to New York City. He’s since returned to his hometown through the pages of his debut novel Shuggie Bain, in which the characters dress to impress while buying clothes on credit and dream of a different life while dealing with addiction and poverty.

Can clothes change the world? For the Cultural Frontline, journalist and author Tansy Hoskins presents her political fashion look-book: a mini style-guide on how to dress to protest, from the US to Belarus and from trousers to T-shirts.

Next, we meet the woman changing the face of fashion in South America. Karla Martinez, Editor in Chief of Vogue Mexico and Vogue Latin America, on how she creates a distinctly Latinx look for the iconic style magazine.

Plus - has a book, a picture or a piece of clothing ever changed the way you see the world? Acclaimed South African designer David Tlale shares the story of how his uncle’s sense of style inspired a career in fashion.

Presenter: Nawal Al-Maghafi

Talking across divides

Katty Kay and Carlos Watson ask how Americans of differing views can restart their conversations. Partisan politics has broken up friendships, love affairs and even families. But is it up to the politicians to take the lead on restoring trust and respect, or should everyone play a part in reaching out across the aisle? Katty and Carlos are joined in the discussion by community organiser Maureen Hetherington, who led a unique project to heal the wounds left by decades of sectarian violence in Northern Ireland, and by Francesca Polletta, professor of sociology at University of California, Irvine, who argues that making people like each other isn’t fundamental to bringing Americans together.

When Donald Trump bought a football team

We speak to former Buffalo Bills coach Phoebe Schechter ahead of the Divisional round of the NFL.

Teams, including the Bills, are just two victories away from the Super Bowl.

Plus in the week that President Donald Trump leaves office we head back to the early 1980s and his departure from professional sport. One of Trump’s ambitions was to own a sport franchise and he converted an NFL team. Unable to make this happen, he purchased the New Jersey Generals American football team of the newly formed USFL. Within two years the league had collapsed and many blame Trump for its demise.

Germany's Julia Gorges graced the world’s top ten, earned 10 million dollars in prize money and reached the semi-finals at Wimbledon but she tells us why the pandemic made her realise she didn't need tennis in her life and decided to retire from the sport last year.


Plus all the reaction following the second day of the final men's Test match between India and Australia and the latest in Galle where England's men are taking on Sri Lanka in the first Test.

And we'll be live to Molineux and the Black Country derby as Wolves take on West Brom in the English Premier League.

Dancing in the kitchen with Eris Drew, Octo Octa, Kate Pierson and Jayda G

DJ and producer Eris Drew talks to Octo Octa, Jayda G, and Kate Pierson of The B-52's about who they’ve remixed recently, why it's hard to do DJ mixes and not be able to look at the crowd, why 1950s rock'n'roll is important for dance music, and the role positivity plays in their music.

Eris is a transgender DJ and producer, originally from Chicago, who started raving in the early 90s, eventually mastering the art of vinyl DJing. She now tours the world playing back-to-back with her partner in life and music, Octo Octa, the ecstatic House producer and DJ based in New Hampshire. They run the T4T LUV NRG record label together.

Also on the show is Jayda G, a Grammy-nominated Canadian DJ and producer now based in London, who has made a huge impression on the underground dance scene over the last few years. She released her debut album Significant Changes on the Ninja Tune label in 2019. She’s also a scientist, having studied environmental toxicology.

And finally, we have musical royalty with Kate Pierson. A singer, lyricist, multi-instrumentalist, and co-founder of one of the world's most famous rock'n'roll bands, the B-52’s. They defined rock through the ‘70s, ‘80s and ‘90s with hits such as Love Shack, Roam, Private Idaho, and Rock Lobster.

SAT 18:32 Mayday (w3ct1cxg)
On 11 November 2019 James Le Mesurier was found dead in a street in Istanbul. He was the latest casualty in a very unusual war – one fought not on the battlefield, but online.

Le Mesurier was a mysterious figure with a taste for the finer things who served in the British Army in several of the world’s hotspots before focusing his energies on war-ravaged Syria from 2014. He co-founded the White Helmets, a Syrian civil defence force who filmed themselves pulling survivors and bodies from the rubble of bombed out buildings.

Soon, the White Helmets - and Le Mesurier - found themselves at the centre of a global race to control the narrative in the Syrian War. In this investigative series Mayday, presenter Chloe Hadjimatheou talks to the people who knew James, including his widow Emma, his ex-wife and former army colleagues, as well as those on the ground in Syria still working as White Helmets today in an effort to piece together James’ story and that of the White Helmets. She speaks to some of the White Helmet’s detractors and follows up accusations about the organisation to try and understand the truth surrounding them.

Chloe Hadjimatheou says: “Making this series has been an extraordinary experience, as listeners will discover. It started out being an investigation into the story of a man with an astonishing life and a mysterious death but it ended up taking me on a bizarre journey down rabbit holes of misinformation. Ultimately this is a story about how truth functions in modern warfare.”

The paddle-out

The sight of dozens of surfers circled together and floating beyond the breakwater will always mean one thing - that another surfer has died. A paddle-out is a way of honouring someone who’s had a love for the ocean. It’s a practice which has become entwined with surf’s cherished culture.

On the coast of Cornwall we meet a gathering of surfers who have come to pay homage to their friend Riccardo, who has recently died from cancer. We join them as they prepare to paddle out with flowers around their necks. They join hands in the water and share stories, memories and songs.

Big wave rider Clyde Aikau, brother to legendary surfer Eddie Aikau, describes the first ever paddle out in 1978, when his brother was lost at sea and drowned. After Eddie died, thousands of people gathered to paddle out from his favourite surf spot at Waimea Bay to celebrate him. It was a defining moment, and surfers around the world still paddle out to mark the anniversary of Eddie’s death each year.

In Cape Town, we also hear the voice of Mikhail Thompson, a surfer and mentor who has administered a number of paddle-out ceremonies during his lifetime. He describes the profoundly spiritual experience of surfing waves, and how losing someone from the close-knit surfer community leaves a void. And we hear him reflect on a special moment in the paddle-out ceremony, when the whole party erupts in hoots and cheers, splashing the water and throwing flowers into the air.

Gravitational waves and black holes

After collecting data for more than twelve years the North American Nanohertz Observatory for Gravitational Waves (NANOGrav) announced it may have detected new kinds of gravitational waves caused by colliding supermassive black holes. Professor Chiara Mingarelli of the University of Connecticut tells Roland Pease why this is such an exciting discovery.

Supermassive black holes are at the heart of galaxies and they are the engines of quasars, the brightest light sources in the heavens that can be seen across the expanse of the Universe. A team including Professor Xiaohui Fan of the University of Arizona has identified the oldest quasar in the universe.

The SARS-CoV-2 virus looks much like bat coronaviruses, but the mostly likely route into humans involved some other infected animal. Roland talks to Dr Dalan Bailey of The Pirbright Institute about how he has been looking for possible intermediaries.

A new study that looks into the genetics of twins and their families in Iceland shows that identical twins aren’t really identical. Kari Stefansson of the Icelandic genome company, DeCode, explains that the differences can appear when the twins are at the embryonic stage.

And , When it comes to speed, humans have got nothing on cheetahs - or greyhounds, kangaroos or zebras for that matter. It’s over long distances we really come into our own: when running for hours or even days, our body structure and excellent sweating skills make us able to outpace much faster mammals.

But what are the limits of human endurance? Can we run ever further and faster, and what’s the best diet to fuel such ambitions?

This week’s questions come from two CrowdScience listeners in Japan who already know a fair bit about stamina, having run several marathons and long-distance triathlons between them. We head to Greece, legendary birthplace of the marathon, to witness an even more arduous challenge: hundreds of athletes following in the footsteps of the ancient Greek messenger Pheidippides, to run an astonishing 246km across the country. The ever-so-slightly less fit CrowdScience team do our best to keep up, and try to discover the secrets of these runners’ incredible endurance.

How effective is one Covid vaccine dose?

Would it make more sense to vaccinate more people by delaying the second doses of vaccines for Covid 19? That is a debate going on at the moment. The UK has decided to delay the second dose for up to three months.

We recently received an email from a listener who says he first heard that the Pfizer/BioNtech vaccine was 52% effective after the first dose and 95% after the second. Now he has been told that the first dose now has an effectiveness of 90%. Which is correct? Tim Harford looks into it.

Plus, is a new Variant first spotted in the UK really 70% more transmissible than previous variants?

My viral video and me

Colm Flynn tracks down the internet's original viral video superstars and reveals how becoming an online sensation changed their life.

So many people spend their time chasing the allure of fame, however, very few ever reach the level of world-wide recognition that viral phenomena obtain almost overnight.

Colm tracks down the people he watched online growing up, to find out what happened to them after their initial viral fame faded. He visits people who amassed hundreds of millions of worldwide views and embedded themselves in the minds of a generation.

A child of the internet’s early days, Colm felt the thrill of watching and sharing videos that seemed real and raw. Now, a decade on, he’ll find the stars of those videos – the ones that gained popularity before the times of social media influencers and vlogger personalities.

He finds out what it was like to be in that whirlwind and discover the opportunities and challenges that going viral presents.
Colm meets Rebecca Black, whose song, Friday, gained international renown. He finds out how the reaction to the record impacted her life and shaped her future. He catches up with Tay Zonday, the man behind Chocolate Rain and Judson Laipply, star of Evolution of Dance – potentially YouTube’s first ever viral hit.

Moana: The Polynesian family behind the smash hit songs

Opetaia Foa'i grew up on the Pacific island of Samoa surrounded by its rhythms, sounds and songs. But surviving wasn't easy and his family moved to the city of Auckland in New Zealand. As he grew up in this new environment he began to look into his roots and started to make music about his voyager ancestors. It caught the eye of producers at Walt Disney Animation Studios who wanted him to co-write the music for their upcoming movie Moana, about a Pacific Island teenager trying to save her community. Opetaia Foa'i made sure the smash hit movie stayed true to Pacific culture - writing the soundtrack's lyrics in Samoan and Tokelauan and turning to his daughter Olivia Foa'i to sing.

Olivia has a new solo album out called Candid. https://www.oliviafoai.com/

My Perfect City: Integration in Rotterdam

Rotterdam is lauded for its policies on integrating immigrant populations into the city. What exactly has it got right?

The second biggest city in The Netherlands is like many port cities. Over the decades it has been a magnet for immigrant workers, whose descendants now number more than 50 percent of the population and tend to live in certain neighbourhoods.

Racial tensions brought the problem of integration to the top of the political agenda. Today, holistic approaches tackle education and employment, as well as quite radical policies on housing.

Fi Glover and panellists Professor Greg Clark, urbanist and global city adviser, and Liz Ogbu, social innovator and spatial justice activist, test the credentials of the Rotterdam desegregation model. Should it be added to the perfect city portfolio?

The team also consider Durban’s path to desegregation.

Olympe de Gouges: France’s forgotten revolutionary heroine

She fought to give women the right to divorce and campaigned on behalf of children born out of wedlock. But in late 18th century France, her radical thinking proved too much for her contemporaries in the French revolution. She insisted women should be allowed to speak out, and she was executed at the guillotine for doing just that. For nearly two centuries her story was largely forgotten, until she was championed by modern-day French feminists, who called for her to be given pride of place in the pantheon of France’s national heroes.

Joining Bridget Kendall to discuss the life of the French political activist and playwright Olympe de Gouges are: French philosopher of feminist thought, Geneviève Fraisse; Professor Catriona Seth of the University of Oxford; and British-French playwright and translator, Clarissa Palmer.

Record-breaking runners

Two of the most decorated female sprinters on the planet, from the US and Jamaica, talk to Kim Chakanetsa about smashing records, the impact of pregnancy, and calling out sex discrimination in their sport.

Allyson Felix is an American sprinter who one year after giving birth to a premature baby, beat Usain Bolt’s record for winning the most world championship gold medals. After Allyson exposed her sponsor Nike for asking her to take a 70% pay cut on a new deal post-pregnancy, the brand changed its policy on pregnant athletes.

Jamaican sprinter Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce has won more 100m world titles than any other athlete in history, male or female. After taking a break from athletics to have a child, she became the world's fastest woman for the fourth time in 2019, bagging two gold medals at Doha.

Both athletes are aiming to add to their medal tally at the postponed Tokyo Olympics in 2021.

MON 04:06 The Climate Question (w3ct0xb8)
Does Africa have a voice on climate?

Ugandan activist Vanessa Nakate is on a mission to make sure Africa is listened to on climate justice.

In early 2019 she started taking to the streets of Kampala to protest about climate change. It was a lonely pursuit. She was often on her own, or at best with a couple of her siblings or friends. But she quickly started gaining recognition, and has since spoken at the UN and Davos.

However, a year ago she was thrust into the spotlight for all the wrong reasons when the Associated Press cut her out of a photo with four other white youth climate activists at an international climate conference. That painful experience has since informed her activism and role within the climate movement: "We will not have climate justice without social and racial justice", she says.

So, of all the problems the African continent is facing, why did she choose to raise her voice on climate change - and is anybody listening?

When will a Covid-19 vaccine be available to you?

Covid-19 vaccine rollouts across the world demonstrate huge global health inequalities. Many countries in the global south are struggling to access one of the vaccines currently available around the world. That's despite a global facility called COVAX, set up under the auspices of the world health organisation, tasked with helping low and middle income countries access vaccines. While rich countries have accumulated extensive supply deals some countries may have to wait until 2022 or later before supplies are widely available. We hear from Mesfin Teklu Tessema, head of the Health Unit at the International Rescue Committee and Fatima Hussein, a human rights lawyer and founder of the Health Justice Initiative in South Africa. Plus Sir Mene Pangalos. the executive vice president of biopharmaceutical R&D at AstraZeneca which developed its Covid-19 vaccine in conjunction with oxford university and has made it available on a not-for-profit basis.

In the early hours of Sunday the 18th of January, 1981, a fire swept through a house full of young people at a birthday celebration being held at 439 New Cross Road in Deptford, south-east London. The fire killed 13 people on the night and was believed by some to be a racist attack.

Amidst frustration at the political and media indifference shown towards the loss of 13 young black lives, political activist Leila Hassan Howe helped organise The Black People’s Day of Action - marking a significant point in Black British history. She talks to May Cameron.

The match-making tree and other tales of unexpected romance

Nick and Diane Marson's flight was diverted after the 9/11 attacks. In the wake of one of the darkest periods in modern history, they met each other and found love on a remote island. Their story inspired the musical Come From Away. This interview was first broadcast in 2019.

Karl-Heinz Martens is a retired German postman who had a very unusual beat - he delivered thousands of letters to a 600-year-old tree known as Bridegroom's Oak. They were love letters, written by people in the hope that a potential partner might read them and reply. This interview was first broadcast in 2018.

Meg and Elena were living oceans apart in Canada and Russia when they met in an online chatroom. Elena's family in Russia couldn't accept that she was in love with a woman so the couple came up with a daring escape plan. They decided to sail tens of thousands of kilometres across the open seas even though they didn't have the skills or experience for such a challenge. This interview was first broadcast in 2018.

How love blossomed in a recording studio between two Italian dub artists who provide the voices for George Clooney and Michelle Pfeiffer. Francesco Pannofino and Emanuela Rossi reveal the secrets of their success in front of and behind the microphone. This interview was first broadcast in 2019.

Alexei Navalny: World leaders demand release of Putin critic

Western nations have voiced concern over the arrest of Putin critic Alexei Navalny following his return to Russia. The police want to hold him until a hearing next week, when a court could invoke a three-and a half year prison sentence that was suspended in 2014.

Also on the programme: We’ll talk about the intense security in place in Washington D.C. ahead of Joe Biden’s inauguration; and a look at how Somalia is likely to manage the battle against jihadists now that US troops have withdrawn.

Russia: Prominent opposition figure detained

Alexei Navalny, Russia's most prominent opposition figure and critic of President Vladimir Putin has been detained in Moscow. He was returning to Russia for the first time since he was poisoned last year. Prosecutors say he violated the parole terms of a suspended sentence for embezzlement that he says was politically motivated. We'll speak to people in Russia to hear their reaction to the news.

Also, this week ahead of the inauguration of US President-elect Joe Biden, we’re reconnecting to Americans we’ve spoken to over the past year, to find out what their hopes are for the next four years. Today we speak to African Americans to find out what they want from Mr Biden's presidency and how they think Black Lives Matter can move forward.

Today we speak to African Americans to find out what they want from Mr Biden's presidency and how they think Black Lives Matter can move forward.

Also, in France people have been using the hashtag #MeTooInceste to give testimony of sexual abuse by relatives. This comes after one of France's most high-profile intellectuals and media personalities, was accused of sexually abusing his stepson. We'll speak to a reporter in Paris who's been following what's happening.

And, 'Blue Monday' has been trending on Twitter. That's because the 18th of January is known as 'the most depressing day of the year' by some. But is there any science behind this? Or is it a completely false concept? We'll speak to our correspondent who's been investigating.

Plant scientist Dale Sanders

Professor Dale Sanders has spent much of his life studying plants, seeking to understand why some thrive in a particular environment while others struggle. His ground breaking research on their molecular machinery showed how plants extract nutrients from the soil and store essential elements. Since plants can’t move, their survival depends on these responses. In 2020, after 27 years at the University of York, he became the Director of the John Innes Centre in Norwich, one of the premier plant research institutions in the world. Meeting the food needs of a growing global population as the climate changes is a major challenge. And, Dale says, it’s not only about maximising yields. We need crops that are more resilient and more nutritious. Drought resistant crop varieties, for example. And zinc-rich white rice. Dale talks to Jim about how plant science is helping to feed the world in a sustainable way and why plant scientists don’t always get the recognition they deserve.

Zanele Muholi: Giving a voice to South Africa’s black LGBTQI+ community

Meet Zanele Muholi, the pioneering non-binary visual activist from South Africa, who wants to give the marginalised a place in history with their powerful portraits of the black LGBTQI+ community in South Africa.

Marking a major retrospective of their work at London’s Tate Modern, reporter Mpho Lakaje joins the artist in Johannesburg and Durban as they work on their series “Faces and Phases”. This evolving photographic record is part of Muholi’s life’s work, to map and preserve an often invisible community, while addressing the serious issue of hate crime in South Africa and its neighbouring countries, where the stigma of being queer can often lead to rape, violence, and murder.

Mpho follows Muholi as they capture images, interview participants and hear their stories before creating striking and challenging images in black and white, highlighting and celebrating the beauty of black skin.

President Joe Biden

On Wednesday, 20 January Joe Biden will be sworn in as America’s 46th president of the United States, after scoring a record-breaking victory on his third attempt at winning the White House.

The man he beat, Donald Trump, was elected on the promise to ‘drain the swamp’ in Washington, and in response Democrat voters elected a candidate from the heart of the political establishment.
After 36 years in the Senate, and Barack Obama’s VP for eight more, Joe Biden is Washington Man epitomised – though has always presented himself as the common man.

Known as the ultimate DC deal-maker and champion of bipartisan politics, he has already called upon both Democrats and Republicans to control the Covid-19 pandemic, and build prosperity, and has stated his desires to ‘restore the soul of America’.

BBC special correspondent James Naughtie charts Joe Biden’s blue-collar roots and political career, and asks what can he and the Democratic Party offer America, following one of the most divisive periods in American history.

Hitler's beer hall putsch

Adolf Hitler made his first attempt to overthrow democracy in Germany in Munich in 1923. It started at a beer hall called the Bürgerbräu in Munich, so it has become known as the "beer hall putsch" or the "Munich putsch". It ended with 16 Nazis and four policemen dead. Although the coup failed, Hitler's trial allowed him to raise his profile on the national stage, and within ten years he became chancellor of Germany.

The Beninese singer hustling for success in New York

Shirazee is a Beninese musician who's had to hustle hard for success. Born Paolo Prudencio, he experienced a violent robbery, a freak casino win, and a stint of homelessness, before establishing himself as a musician in New York. Now he's got a music deal, and he's even collaborating with the British musician Sting. Shirazee spoke to Outlook's Emily Webb.

Opetaia Foa'i grew up on the Pacific island of Samoa surrounded by its rhythms, sounds and songs. But surviving wasn't easy and his family moved to the city of Auckland in New Zealand. As he grew up in this new environment he began to look into his roots and started to make music about his voyager ancestors. It caught the eye of Disney, who wanted him to co-write the music for their upcoming movie Moana, about a Pacific Island teenager trying to save her community.

Online manipulation on a global scale

Social media influence by governments and political parties is a growing threat to democracies according to the 2020 media manipulation survey from the Oxford Internet Institute. In the last year social media manipulation campaigns have been recorded in 81 countries, up from 70 countries in 2019 and most of the countries involved have deployed disinformation campaigns. The main author of the report, Dr. Samantha Bradshaw is on the show.

GPS Grazing Collars
How do you control where your animals graze if you can’t fit a fence to keep them contained to a certain area? Use a GPS grazing collar. This technology has been developed by Norwegian firm NoFence and uses GPS to track individual animals and stop them crossing boundaries that have been progammed using a mapping app on a smart phone. The collars emit a bleeping noise that gets louder as animals reach a virtual fence and will receive a small electric shock if they cross it (this is much smaller than one from an electric fence). Electric fences are expensive and difficult to fit in remote terrains and these GPS collars allow farmers to regularly change their grazing sites. We hear about the tech from UK manager of NoFence Synne Foss Budal and about the conservation benefits from Emma Wright from North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty who is trailing the collars in their upland pastures.

Ubiquitous Connectivity and cybersecurity
Late last year the World Economic Forum and the University of Oxford, released a report on the future of cybersecurity. They identified four emerging technology trends that could endanger security in the digital world within the next 5 to 10 years. In a series of reports Digital Planet’s Florian Bohr looks into each of these cybersecurity threats of the future. This week, we hear about how the sheer amount of digital connections between devices, services, and people is an inherent cybersecurity risk.

My Perfect City

My Perfect City: Women entrepreneurs in Kochi

The cosmopolitan port city of Kochi is the commercial capital of the southern state of Kerala, which has a special track record when it comes to gender equality. Female literacy and life expectancy rates are among the highest in India, and greater access to economic opportunities has made Kochi a hub for women-led businesses, which not only boosts the economy but has lasting development benefits for society as a whole.

The newly elected Mayor of Kochi, M Anil Kumar, is keen to make female entrepreneurship a flagship policy by increasing access to funding, startup and incubation programmes. We also hear how women’s safety is key to ensuring they have equal access to the workplace. But how far does India’s deep-seated gender discrimination cast a shadow?

Fi Glover is joined by urbanists Abha Joshi-Ghani and Dr Ellie Cosgrave to assess Kochi’s achievements. Is it a model for a perfect city?

The team also consider Stockholm’s record on promoting women entrepreneurs.

Featuring Pinky Jayaprakash, CEO and co-founder of edtech digital assessment platform SkEdu; Vinodini Isaac, president of the Women’s Entrepreneur Network; Dr Shoba Arun, reader in sociology at Manchester Metropolitan University; and EK Bharat Bhushan, Kerala’s former chief secretary.

The Turner Diaries - America's manual of hatred

Following the assault on the US Capitol earlier this month, Amazon banned The Turner Diaries, a racist novel blamed for inciting American neo-Nazis to violence. The book calls for a race war and a coup against the institutions of US democracy. It was the favourite reading of Timothy McVeigh, the white terrorist who blew up a federal government building in Oklahoma City in 1995, killing 168 people.

The Turner Diaries was published in 1978 by a former physics professor and neo-Nazi called William Luther Pierce. Simon Watts has been hearing the memories of his son, Kelvin Pierce. They were recorded as part of the BBC series on the American far-right, Two Minutes Past Nine.

Why do the Indian farmer protests matter?

It has been called the world’s biggest protest. In November 2020, thousands of farmers marched to New Delhi to protest against new laws that the Indian government says will modernise farming. The farmers set up camp in and around the capital, blocking major highways. Over 50 days later they are still there, in spite of freezing temperatures. Even after the Supreme Court stayed the laws until further notice, the farmers say they aren’t budging until they are repealed completely. They say these reforms will strip them of protections they’ve enjoyed for decades, resulting in lower prices and ruined livelihoods.

Kavita Puri hears why the protests matter for India’s millions of farmers, for the future of the country’s crisis-ridden agriculture, and the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. With contributions from agricultural policy expert, Devinder Sharma; Fellow of the American Enterprise Institute, Sadanand Dhume; Professor of economics at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, Jayati Ghosh; and BBC correspondent Soutik Biswas.

Lisa Montgomery: The road to execution

Lisa Montgomery’s crime was an especially abominable murder. In 2004 in the small mid-West American town of Skidmore, she strangled an expectant mother, Bobbie Jo Stinnett. She then cut open her victim’s womb and kidnapped her baby, who survived the ordeal.

Her lawyers argued that she was mentally ill at the time – as a consequence of appalling abuse she had suffered in childhood, including gang rape and torture. They said she was also brain-damaged and delusional.

Nevertheless, in the final days of Donald Trump’s presidency, she paid for her actions with her own life - the first female to be executed by the US federal government in almost seven decades. As a new president assumes office, promising reform of America’s criminal justice system.

Hilary Andersson charts the story of this unsettling case, from Lisa Montgomery’s tragic beginnings to her final moments, and finds a nation deeply divided over the issue.

Kenya's pioneering publisher

When Dr Henry Chakava became Kenya's first African book editor in 1972, there were virtually no books or educational material published in African languages, even in Kiswahili. He made it his priority to translate work by African authors into African languages, he also commissioned original work in several of Kenya's many languages, and published hundreds of textbooks. A champion of cultural diversity across East Africa, Dr Chakava tells Rebecca Kesby why he devoted his life to preserving and enriching the region's languages, and why he believes even more must be done to make sure they survive and thrive in the future.

Toussaint L’Ouverture: Hero of the Haitian slave rebellion

Late 18th-Century Saint Domingue in the Caribbean – now known as Haiti – was one of the richest countries in the world. Known as ‘the pearl of the Antilles’, its wealth was built almost entirely on slavery. Around half a million enslaved Africans were transported to the French colony to work on the sugar plantations.

Toussaint L’Ouverture was destined to see out his days within this brutal system, but his skills as a negotiator and communicator saw him rise to the forefront of the resistance movement on the island. A wily and charismatic operator, he galvanised his fellow countrymen and women to lead history’s first and only successful slave uprising.

Diverging from French colonial rule brought him to the attention of Napoleon Bonaparte, who sent a large fleet to re-establish slavery on Saint Domingue. The expedition ended with Toussaint’s capture and exile to France, where he died in a cold prison cell in 1803. But his generals meanwhile carried on the struggle to uphold Toussaint’s opposition to slavery, which became the basis for the new independent state of Haiti.

Joining Rajan Datar to explore this complex figure are Marlene L Daut, Professor of African Diaspora Studies in the Carter G. Woodson Institute at the University of Virginia, and the author of Tropics of Haiti: Race and the Literary History of the Haitian Revolution in the Atlantic World, 1789-1865; Weibert Arthus, the Haitian ambassador to Canada, who’s also published widely on Haitian diplomacy and history; and Sudhir Hazareesingh, professor in politics at Balliol College, Oxford. His biography Black Spartacus: The epic life of Toussaint Louverture was published in 2020.

'Document everything. Trust no one'

When the Islamic State group seized control of Mosul in 2014, the local historian Omar Mohammed made a promise to himself and his city: document everything, trust no one. He created the anonymous blog Mosul Eye and risked his life to secretly report the daily atrocities committed by the militants. He lived next door to a senior IS commander and sometimes even went incognito as a baker, grocer or taxi driver just to get more information. It was work that could get him killed and no one knew he was Mosul Eye – not even his mother. But soon, the double life that Omar was leading began taking its toll. Would his cover get blown?

Saving the Northern White Rhino

Northern white rhinos are extinct in the wild and there are just two females in captivity in Kenya. Conservationists are working on an artificial breeding programme, using eggs from the females and sperm from a deceased male. Now five embryos have been created. Thomas Hildebrandt of the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research in Berlin explained the research.

President Biden’s first executive order was what’s being called the hundred-day mask mandate. The day before the inauguration a massive analysis of mask-wearing and COVID rates demonstrated a clear, if small, benefit. Epidemiologist Ben Rader told Roland Pease that it got over 300,000 opinions by using the online questionnaire, SurveyMonkey.

After the alarming series of record-breaking heatwaves last year, global warming is causing specific problems in the innumerable lakes around the world. Lakes are ecologically particularly vulnerable to extremes. The European Space Agency’s Yestyn Woolway has been analysing past trends, and modelling the future.

2020 delivered a record year in hurricanes, which caused around $60 billion dollars in damage to the US alone, according to one estimate. A new technology called Airborne Phased-Array Radar promises to improve the measurements that are currently made by planes that fly right into the eye of the hurricanes, and make the missions safe. It’s being developed at the National Centre for Atmospheric Research and Roland discussed the new technology with the Director of NCAR, Vanda Grubišić.

Afghanistan: Hard choices for Biden

The future of US troops in Afghanistan could be Joe Biden's first major foreign policy decision. Less than a year ago the Trump administration reached a deal with the Taliban to withdraw all American troops from the country. The Taliban promised to stop targeting US and NATO forces as they wound down their presence. Now, with the May deadline fast approaching, President Biden will need to decide whether to honour the agreement at a time when the Taliban is being blamed for a string of deadly attacks targeting journalists, judges and police officers. The Red Cross described Afghanistan as the deadliest country for civilians in 2020, but despite the violence the government in Kabul is continuing discussions with the Taliban over a framework for peace negotiations. The presence of foreign troops has provided some level of security against an enemy that controls swathes of the countryside, so what will happen if and when they leave? And could advances in gender equality and religious freedoms be rolled back as part of any final agreement? Join Ritula Shah and guests as they discuss the state of Afghanistan and the tough decisions the Biden administration will soon need to make.

BBC Mundo’s Enric Botella, who’s from Catalonia, tells the story.

Is this Egypt’s #metoo moment?

Egypt is currently in the midst of a growing movement calling out the culture of sexual assault that’s rife in the country. A UN study showed 99.3% of Egyptian women have experienced sexual harassment or violence, and although women’s rights activists have been campaigning for years, there continues to be victim blaming surrounding women and a lack of prosecutions. However, a recent high profile case of one man who allegedly sexually assaulted and blackmailed several women was brought to the public’s attention due to an Instagram account called Assault Police which shared victim’s testimonies. It’s encouraged more women to speak out about their own experiences. And significantly, the religious authority, the Al Azhar Mosque published guidelines against assault, specifically stating what women wear is not an excuse.

Salma El-Wardany, a UK based Muslim writer and poet, was born in Egypt and wants to uncover what impact this largely online movement is having. Will it create a lasting change in Egyptian society and result in prosecutions?
Salma will talk to the key women fighting for change, and the male allies using their platform to speak out. She’ll hear from Nadeen Ashraf, the young woman behind Assault Police, and Sabah Khodir who’s offering practical support and guidance for victims. Plus she’ll speak to Omar Samra a well-known adventurer who’s encouraging men to take responsibility for their actions. She’ll hear from Human Rights Watch about their concerns over women’s rights in the country, and she’ll speak to Egyptian American journalist Mona Eltahawy about her hopes for a feminist revolution.

Life in Wuhan a year after lockdown started

This week marks one year since the world’s first Covid lockdown started and the Chinese government confined almost 60 million people to their homes in Wuhan and the surrounding province. Our China correspondent, John Sudworth, reports from the city that is now remembered in China as the scene of a great victory.

Also in the programme: Australia's prime minister says he will not respond to threats, after Google said it would disable its search engine if it was required to pay for news content in the country; and as President Biden and Canada's prime minister, Justin Trudeau, discuss the cancellation of the Keystone XL oil pipeline, we debate the pros and cons of such projects.

Organised labour comes to Silicon Valley

There is a growing trend in favour of Silicon Valley tech workers forming trade unions. Google software engineer Andrew Gainer-Dewar recalls how a walkout of staff at the search engine in November 2018 sowed the seeds for the Alphabet Workers' Union, named after Google's parent company, which was formed earlier this month. Professor Louis Hyman is a historian of work and business at Cornell University, and puts the development into historical context. And we find out more from Veena Dubal, who is a professor of law at the University of California, Hastings College of the Law. Also in the programme, Google is pulling the plug on Project Loon, a network of balloons carrying antennas, which would float high above the ground and transmit internet signals to remote areas. BBC technology correspondent Rory Cellan-Jones tells us why, and we hear what other technologies might bring internet to rural Africa from Johannesburg-based telecoms and internet analyst Arthur Goldstuck. Plus, as release of the new James Bond film No Time to Die is postponed for a third time, we hear about the impact on cinemas from Annabel Turpin who runs the ARC Stockton Arts Centre in northeast England.

Coronavirus: a year since Wuhan lockdown

A year on from the first coronavirus lockdown in the Chinese city of Wuhan, the authorities in China are responding to new cases with mass testing programmes. We'll get our China media analyst to explain.

We'll talk through the latest news on coronavirus and answer your questions with our regular expert, Dr Megan Murray from Harvard University.

As President Biden gets to work in the White House, we speak to evangelical Christians. White evangelicals heavily backed Donald Trump in the 2020 election, although support was slightly down on the previous election. We talk about the conversations and some divisions inside the church as the presidential politics played out. How do evangelicals see the future?

US inauguration conversations: Evangelical Christians

As President Biden gets to work in the White House, we speak to evangelical Christians. White evangelicals heavily backed Donald Trump in the 2020 election, although support was slightly down on the previous election. We talk about the conversations and some divisions inside the church as the presidential politics played out. How do evangelicals see the future?

We get more of your questions answered on the coronavirus pandemic with Professor Marc Mendelson from the University of Cape Town.

We also explain the political consequences of coronavirus this week in Mongolia, where the Prime Minister resigned following protests over the treatment of a woman who had just given birth. She had also tested positive for Covid-19 and was seen in TV pictures being moved with her baby, on foot, out of the maternity ward, in sub-zero temperatures, wearing only her pyjamas.

Are there downsides to deep cleaning?

Covid-19 has prompted a cleaning frenzy. CrowdScience listener William works as a personal trainer in a gym, and while cleaning’s always been part of his job, it’s now taken over much of his working day. He’s constantly wiping down equipment and doing regular deep cleans, and he reckons he can sanitize his hands 40 times in one shift.

This kind of routine might strike a chord with many of us, and it’s certainly vital to take hygiene seriously during times of pandemic.

But could there be any downsides to all this extra cleaning? There’s a whole world of microbes out there: some, like SARS-CoV-2, make us sick, but others are essential for our health. A rich microbiome is linked to a healthy immune system, while ‘good’ microbes help keep ‘bad’ ones at bay. And what about the chemicals in cleaning products – do they have any unintended consequences for our health?

CrowdScience turns to the experts to ask whether our supercharged hygiene routines could damage our immune systems, or promote the spread of superbugs. And we hear why, as long as we have a good diet, plenty of fresh air, and ideally a furry pet, we don’t need to worry too much about being too clean.
