Apple boss testifies in Epic legal row

Epic Games is suing Apple over what it claims is the monopolistic way it runs its App store; we hear from Adi Robertson, tech reporter at the Verge. And a lot of young people have started to invest during the pandemic, often through trading apps to invest their money as Marketplace's Kai Rysdall has been finding out. Also in the programme, as supplies of petrol and jet fuel have been reaching major cities on America's east coast with the Colonial Pipeline brought back on-stream following a ransomware attack earlier in the month, we consider the politics of pipelines; we speak to Dr Ellen Wald, senior fellow with the Atlantic Council Global Energy Center. And as the Eurovision Song Contest gears up for this year's competition in front of a live audience in Rotterdam on Saturday, project director Alice Vlaanderen explains how this year's event will differ from previous incarnations. Plus, we're joined throughout the programme by Rebecca Archer, freelance journalist with the ABC Brisbane.

Fighting forced marriage in war

In 2009 a war crimes trial in Sierra Leone ruled that forced marriage was a crime against humanity. It was the first time a court had recognised that charge. The ruling came in a trial of three rebel leaders for crimes committed during Sierra Leone's civil war. The legal turning point came largely as a result of the testimonies of the women who had been victims. The prosecution argued that forced marriage should be considered a crime against humanity distinct from other forms of sexual violence. Farhana Haider has been speaking to the former chief prosecutor Stephen Rapp about the trials.

China in space

China has successfully landed and operated a rover on the surface of Mars, a feat only previously achieved by the United States. It follows Beijing’s successful robotic mission to the Moon to return lunar samples to Earth and comes just weeks after the launch into orbit of the first module of the country’s very own space station. China only sent its first human into space in 2003, but since then its technological capabilities have multiplied. But so too have the controversies. The mission to launch the space station module resulted in the uncontrolled return to Earth of debris from the Long March-5b rocket used, and a good deal of the ‘space junk’ currently orbiting the planet can be blamed on a Chinese missile test back in 2007. China says it has no intention of taking part in the militarisation of space and that its intentions are purely scientific. The country’s been banned from working with the United States and its partners on the International Space Station, but it is forming new alliances - with Beijing and Moscow agreeing to develop a joint base on the Moon. But what are the ultimate goals of China’s space programme? And as technologies needed to take humans to Mars are developed, are we about to witness a new ‘Space Race’? Paul Henley is joined by a panel of expert guests.

Israel and Gaza

After 11 days of conflict, a ceasefire has been agreed between Israel and the Palestinian militant group Hamas. The violence in that time killed more than 250 people, most of them in Gaza.

During this past week, host Nuala McGovern has been hearing conversations from both Palestinians and Israelis about what it has been like to be living under bombardment. They talk about their lives and hopes for the future.

Among those she talks to are two women in their twenties in Gaza and also two Jewish women in the Israeli city of Lod, where a state of emergency was declared. They each share the emotional and mental toll from what they have witnessed.

Sportshour asks: How could sport look in 2050?

We’ve brought together a Sportshour mini panel of experts to discuss what Sport could look like in the next thirty years to tie in with the BBC’s Sport 2050 project.

We’re joined by Claire Poole, who is the Founder and CEO of Sport Positive, Madeleine Orr, who is an Assistant Professor of Sport Management at SUNY Cortland and founder The Sport Ecology Group, and Tanya Aldred, who is a journalist writing and campaigning about cricket and the environment.

Our guests discuss the impact climate change is having on events and athletes now, how next year’s Winter Olympics could be affected, how we could see fewer top athletes emerge in Africa and the Caribbean in the future and the impact that could have on events like the Marathon and Major League Baseball.

We also talk about the importance of athletes speaking out about climate change and we discuss some imagined scenarios of how sport could look in the year 2050. Throughout the discussion we hear from current and former athletes including: Ski cross Olympic champion Kelsey Serwa Rey and Tottenham and England footballer Eric Dier.

The world’s best in Powerchair football – Australia’s Abdullah Karim – joins us to discuss being compared to Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, his hopes for next year’s World Cup on home soil and how his mother has helped him achieve what he has. Karim was born with severe scoliosis and limb deficiency and he credits his mum with helping him adapt to using his feet, which he relies on to do pretty much everything in his daily life.

And in Sporting Witness – we tell the inspirational story of Maria Mutola, one of only 4 athletes to compete at six Olympic games and the winner of Mozambique’s first Olympic gold medal.

How can rural India battle Covid?

While the total number of daily Covid infections in India is on the wane, the share of cases in rural districts is seeing a big surge. A large number of people in rural towns and villages live in poverty, and rundown local hospitals and clinics are unequipped to cope with a crisis of this scale. There is also a severe distrust in modern medicine.

What can be done to control the spread of the pandemic in rural areas, and is there a way to resolve the under-reporting of actual cases and fatalities?

In this edition of WorklifeIndia, we discuss ways of lessening the impact of Covid in rural India.

Gagarin and the lost Moon

On 12 April 1961, cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin became an explorer like none other before him, going faster and further than any human in history, into what had always been the impenetrable and infinite unknown. Raised in poverty during the World War Two, the one-time foundry worker and a citizen of the Soviet Union became the first human to fly above the Earth in the vastness of space. In doing so he became an instrument in The Cold War – an ideological battle between the superpowers; East versus West, communism versus democracy.

In the year of the 60th anniversary, Dr Kevin Fong tells the story of how 27-year-old Yuri Gagarin came to launch a new chapter in the history of exploration and follows the cosmonaut’s one hour flight around the Earth.

The Soviet Union's triumph in 1961 was the event that galvanised the United States to win the Space Race, to send the first people on the Moon by the end of the decade. Yuri’s own ambitions to voyage to the Moon were frustrated by his political masters, a faltering Soviet lunar space program and two tragic accidents.

Getting personal with Lila Iké

Jamaican rising stars Lila Iké, Sevana, Jaz Elise and Naomi Cowan discuss whether or not they think about genre when creating, how much they write about their personal lives in their music, and how their experiences as a woman in the music industry are reflected in their songs.

Lila Iké is a Jamaican singer-songwriter whose genreless sound fuses contemporary reggae with elements of soul, dancehall and hip-hop. She signed to Protoje's In.Digg.Nation label in 2017 and released her debut EP, The ExPerience. last year.

Studio Ghibli: The next generation

This week, The Cultural Frontline explores family, legacy and creativity.

Studio Ghibli is one of the biggest names in animation, famous for films such as The Wind Rises, My Neighbour Totoro and the Oscar winning Spirited Away. For years, Studio Ghibli was led by its co-founder, the visionary director, Hayao Miyazaki. Since Hayao‘s retirement in 2014 there have been changes at the iconic animation house, with the emergence of Hayao’s son, Goro Miyazaki as a new leading force. Our reporter Anna Bailey speaks to Goro about the challenges of continuing his father’s legacy and his new film Earwig and the Witch, a story about magic and family.

Is there a work of art - a song, a poem or a film that makes you think of your family? The music producer Fatima al-Qadiri shares the story of how the soundtrack to her favourite game evokes the memories of her childhood in Kuwait during the First Gulf War.

Two mothers determined to do what’s right for their children. That simple premise is the starting point for the new novel What’s Mine and Yours, a multigenerational story of race, family and identity in America by the acclaimed writer Naima Coster. Chi Chi Izundu speaks to Naima about how her novel was shaped by her experiences of childhood and motherhood.

Family history, identity and voicing the challenges faced by young working class women, that’s the focus of the poetry collection, Where the Memory Was, by British-Somali poet Hibaq Osman. For The Cultural Frontline, Hibaq shares the influences that shaped her writing and reads one of her poems.

Robot revolution

A brain-computer interface allows a severely paralysed patient not only to move and use a robotic arm, but also to feel the sensations as the mechanical hand clasps objects . We hear from Jennifer Collinger at Pittsburgh University’s Rehab Neural Engineering Labs. And Nathan Copeland, who has been controlling the robotic arm with his thoughts via a series of brain implants.

Ralph Baric of the University of North Carolina tells us about the development of a multi-component vaccine that would be effective not just against the current coronavirus outbreak and its variants, but also future outbreaks from SARS-like coronaviruses that we don’t even know about yet.

Blood clots, thromboses, have been a problem for a small number of people following Covid vaccination Paul Knöbl, and a team of medics in Vienna have worked out the link between vaccination and clot development. They now have a method to treat such clots – so they should not be fatal.

And how did fungi and plants come to live together? Symbiotic relationships between the two are a key component of the evolution of life. Melanie Rich of the University of Toulouse has been looking at the present day genetic markers which allowed plants and fungi to help each other as they first colonised land millions of years ago.

Also...You are a star. Literally.
You are a carbon-based life form and those atoms of carbon in the molecules that make up your cells were formed by a nuclear fusion reaction at the heart of long dead stars. That goes for the oxygen in your lungs too. And the red blood cells that carry that oxygen to your tissues? They contain haemoglobin, and nestled at the heart of each molecule is an element (iron) formed by a supernova - the fiery explosion at the death of a star. Your body is a walking, thinking museum of some of the most violent events in the universe.

This, as CrowdScience host Marnie Chesterton discovers, isn’t as special as it sounds. All of the stuff on the earth - the elements that make clouds and mountains and mobile phones – they all have an origin story. CrowdScience tells that story, starting with the big bang and ending with physicists, creating new elements in the lab. Find out the age of the elements and the distance they have travelled to make their current home on earth.

The battle over property in East Jerusalem

In East Jerusalem, a battle over property has proved to be a lightning rod for long held tensions and unresolved grievances. In the small neighbourhood of Sheikh Jarrah, protesters have been trying to stop Israel evicting eight Palestinian families. This, along with complaints of heavy handed policing of the Al Aqsa compound during Ramadan has ignited a conflict which lasted over a week, with rockets being fired from Gaza and Israeli air strikes. A ceasefire has now been agreed but the fighting has stirred deep resentments on both sides. Paul Adams visits Sheikh Jarrah.

In Afghanistan earlier this month, a devastating triple bombing outside a secondary school in Kabul shattered confidence in the country as the US and Nato prepare for a full troop withdrawal later this year. More than 60 people – mostly girls – were killed in the explosions in a neighbourhood in western Kabul. The country has recently seen an increase in violence and targeted attacks and there is growing apprehension the Taliban will play a more dominant role in a future Afghan government, posing a threat to women’s rights. Lyse Doucet has been in Kabul

Jakarta is one of the world’s most polluted cities and a lawsuit has been brought against the president and other top officials by 32 Jakarta residents who are concerned about the impact dirty air is having on their family’s health. The BBC’s Asia editor, Rebecca Henschke lived for over a decade in Jakarta and says poor air quality was one of the reasons she left.

In Washington, things are somewhat calmer in President Biden’s White House than they were under Donald Trump. The salvos via Twitter; heated exchanges with journalists and a more flamboyant leadership style have been replaced with carefully calibrated messaging and a more choreographed approach. Anthony Zurcher reflects on the new sense of order and normality – and whether that is always a good thing.

Speaking out

London-based broadcaster Edward Adoo and US DJ T Storm team up to discuss the experiences of black people who are stopped and searched in their countries. Together they hear the personal stories of others from all over the world who’ve suffered the humiliation of what many who have been stopped say is apparent racial stereotyping.

They also talk to researchers and policy makers about the psychological trauma suffered by those subjected to stop and search; and also look at arguments for the practice and ask whether its ever fair to stop and search, and host a global discussion on the impact of stop and search policies and their future.

SUN 08:32 The Food Chain (w3ct1rfm)
What's the appetite for gene edited food?

Gene editing could revolutionise agriculture, with some scientists promising healthier and more productive crops and animals, but will consumers want to eat them?

With the first gene edited crops recently approved for sale, Emily Thomas hears why this technology might be quicker, cheaper and more accurate than the older genetic engineering techniques that produced GMOs, and asks whether these differences could make it more acceptable to a deeply sceptical, even fearful public.

Some are not convinced by the claims, and there are concerns that current regulations won't protect consumers or the environment from any potential risks. By putting their faith in technology, have scientists and companies overlooked other simpler solutions to our food security problems?

Producer: Simon Tulett

Bob Dylan: Born again

Bob Dylan was brought up in a Jewish household in the American Midwest, but kept his faith away from the spotlight of his professional counter-culture persona. That was until the late 1970s when he converted to evangelical Christianity and released an album that shared his born again beliefs with the world.

We join his childhood friend, Louie Kemp, as we delve into why the boy he met at a Jewish summer camp turned to Christianity.

We hear from Regina McCray, his backing singer from the time, who retells the story of her audition where she sang Amazing Grace. She went on to get the job, but little did she know that the song would go on to inspire Dylan’s sound for his next three albums - Slow Train Coming, Saved, and Shot of Love.

We also hear from Australian journalist, Karen Hughes, whose in-depth interview with the singer broke to the world how serious Dylan was about Christianity - and from Swedish doctor and musician, Valdemar Erling, whose accidental discovery of Slow Train Coming has been the foundation of his faith for many years.

Along with live music tracks, archive excerpts from outraged fans and even the sounds of Bob Dylan preaching to his crowds, we hear how Dylan’s often overlooked ‘Gospel Period’ helped people develop a deeper connection to spirituality that is still relevant today, years after the singer-songwriter appears to have turned his back on organised religion altogether.

Calls for the return of objects, looted from around the world are growing ever louder. Actor and musician Kema Sikazwe travels to London to see the Broken Hill Skull at the Natural History Museum. At the launch of the Return of the Icons campaign, V&A director Tristram Hunt explains how he is responding to Ethiopia’s formal restitution claim. Children’s author, Kandace Chimbiri describes how her writing fills gaping historical hole and French art historian Didier Rykner is convinced that President Macron’s approach, is fundamentally flawed. Should priceless parts of history be returned? And if so, what’s at stake?

The birth of the modern car

The motor car is a feature of contemporary life the world over but when and where did motor vehicles begin? How did we get from the slow, noisy, dangerous, early vehicles of the 19th century to the swish, sleek, practical cars of today? Why did the early electric vehicle – so popular early on and the first car to go faster than a hundred kilometres an hour - suddenly fall out of favour? And who were the early engineers whose major contributions to car design deserve to be better known?
These are some of the questions that Bridget Kendall asks three automotive experts: writer and broadcaster Giles Chapman is the award-winning author of 55 books on car history, culture and design; Larry Edsall also has many automotive books to his name; he has written about cars for many American newspapers and is founding editor at ClassicCars.com; and Gundula Tutt is a leading German restorer of historic vehicles whose work graces many public and private museums. She has a particular interest in the science and technology of car paint and other finishes and is the founding member of the Institute for Automobile Forensics.

End new fossil fuel development, says IEA

The International Energy Agency has added its voice to those calling for the end of fossil fuels. The dramatic intervention from the body which helps keep global oil supplies moving is music to the ears of many scientists and environmentalists. Shareholder activists too are pushing from within companies for an energy transition so we ask what the future looks like for the oil and gas sector. Why are some companies resisting the call to go green faster and harder?

We’ll look at what happened to the autonomous driving revolution we were all promised. Are driverless cars ever going to be more than an experiment?

The hospitality sector may be opening up across the world once more, but who is going to be waiting the tables and cooking the meals? Many staff who were laid off in the first wave of the pandemic have since found new jobs or even moved countries creating a huge staff shortage.

And all work, no play? Our workplace commentator extols the virtues of a little play at work.

Is bottom trawling for fish bad for the climate?

More than two thirds of our planet is covered by the oceans, but there’s still much to be uncovered about the role that these watery worlds play in climate change.

But recent scientific research claims that bottom trawling, a method of fishing that involves dragging heavy nets across the seafloor, emits about the same amount of carbon annually as aviation. Seabed sediments, which act as huge carbon sinks, are churned up, resulting in carbon dioxide emissions. So should trawling – commonplace around the globe because of its effectiveness – be reduced? And has the climate change impact of bottom trawling been exaggerated?

Sweet honey and queen bees

Vital for the planet's health, bees are a key part of pollinating the world's fruits, flowers and crops. And beekeeping seems to be growing in popularity, even the Queen B, Beyoncé, has bee hives in her garden. Kim Chakanetsa talks to two women about what ignited their passion for bees and honey.

South African, Mokgadi Mabela was only interested in her father's bees because she thought they could make her money. She sold the honey to colleagues in her office in Pretoria. When demand became too great for her father and his network he suggested she start some hives of her own. She set up a family company Native Nosi, producing honey and other bee by-products for South Africa and beyond.

Dr Agnes Tyburn grew up in Martinique where her grandfather kept a couple of bee hives. When she was doing her PhD in Organic Chemistry at Cambridge University in the UK she decided it would be nice to try beekeeping herself, despite not having a garden. She’s now set up Bee Sitter – offering online support, practical advice, mentoring and bee keeping courses.

The strike that shocked India

When one and a half million Indian railway workers went on strike for 20 days in 1974 it brought the country to a halt. Essential food, goods and workers were unable to reach their destinations. Despite this, the general public were largely sympathetic to the strike as they too felt a sense of anger at the government over the economy and allegations of corruption. Claire Bowes has been talking to union leader Subhash Malgi about why the government attempt to prevent the action with mass arrests and harassment backfired and to author Stephen Sherlock about how it became - what was at the time - the biggest strike in history and led to Prime Minister Indira Gandhi's declaration the following year of a national state of emergency.

How old are the elements?

You are a star. Literally.
You are a carbon-based life form and those atoms of carbon in the molecules that make up your cells were formed by a nuclear fusion reaction at the heart of long dead stars. That goes for the oxygen in your lungs too. And the red blood cells that carry that oxygen to your tissues? They contain haemoglobin, and nestled at the heart of each molecule is an element (iron) formed by a supernova - the fiery explosion at the death of a star. Your body is a walking, thinking museum of some of the most violent events in the universe.
This, as CrowdScience host Marnie Chesterton discovers, isn’t as special as it sounds. All of the stuff on the earth - the elements that make clouds and mountains and mobile phones – they all have an origin story. CrowdScience tells that story, starting with the big bang and ending with physicists, creating new elements in the lab. Find out the age of the elements and the distance they have travelled to make their current home on earth.

Rickie Lee Jones: Why music became my bridge to the world

Rickie Lee Jones was making up songs from the age of four. Part of a musical family - her grandparents were vaudeville stars in Chicago - she says music acted as an "accidental bridge" between her and the world. After running away from home at the age of fourteen, Rickie Lee eventually headed for California and set her heart on becoming a singer. She went from life on the breadline to fame, fortune and Grammy success at the age of 24. She tells Emily Webb about her remarkable life including her relationship with the singer Tom Waits, her secret battle to overcome heroin addiction in the late 1970s and why she feels that, as a woman, she faced more stigma as a result. She also tells Emily why she’s still inspired by the very first album she was given as a child – West Side Story. Her memoir is called Last Chance Texaco: Chronicles of an American Troubadour.

Western countries express outrage at Belarus plane 'hijack'

Belarus claimed there was a bomb threat to the Ryanair flight, which was heading for Lithuania, and scrambled a fighter plane to force the passanger jet to land in Minsk. Police detained journalist Roman Protasevich when passengers disembarked. Before the plane landed he told people on the flight he feared he would face the death penalty in Belarus.

Also in the programme: Myanmar's former leader Aung San Suu Kyi has appeared in court in the capital Naypyadaw for the first time since she was ousted in a military coup in February; and how a political dispute in Samoa left the new Prime Minister locked out of the parliament building where her swearing-in ceremony was due to take place.

Belarus accused of plane hijack to detain dissident

The EU considers sanctions after Belarus detained a dissident journalist from a flight. Hanna Liubakova is a friend of the journalist Roman Protasevich, whose Ryanair plane was diverted to Minsk airport when flying over Belarus so he could be detained. And we consider the potential actions the EU could take in response to the move with Sergei Guriev, who is a Russian economist and professor of economics at the Instituts d'Etudes Politiques in Paris. Also in the programme, as Spain reopens to British tourists, we examine the state of the country's hospitality sector. Leire Bilbao promotes Benidorm as a global tourist destination, and tells us how the pandemic has led to the closure of many bars and restaurants in the city. We hear from Mara Verdasco, who runs one of Madrid's oldest restaurants, La Bola, and has been taking part in protests seeking more help for hospitality businesses. And we get the perspective of Spain's tourism minister, Fernando Valdez.

Patient zero: Back from the brink

A six-year old boy in Papua New Guinea woke up one day in 2018 and was suddenly unable to stand up. Less than a year later, children in three other Asia Pacific nations were experiencing the same alarming symptoms.

A disease that had been thought to have been eradicated from this region 18 years before was back -- and it appeared to be spreading.
Olivia Willis tells the story of how doctors discovered that these children who developed paralysis had in fact contracted polio.

Reaching back to Hands Across America

On 25 May 1986, 6.5 million people did the impossible; they joined hands to form the world’s longest human chain, from New York to Los Angeles. But far from being a simple stunt, Hands Across America was raising money to fight hunger and homelessness in the world’s richest country. Did it succeed?

Aleks Krotoski was 11 years old when she stood in the sunshine between her mother and a stranger and held their hands for those 15 minutes 35 years ago. She speaks with the organisers, the people who participated, and the people who received the donations, and discovers that Hands Across America didn’t just feed the hungry, but led the social networking revolution a well.

Eric Whitacre – Creating the Virtual Choir

As Covid-19 has swept the world we’ve become used to seeing musicians in lockdown presenting videos of virtual performances. But for the Grammy-award winning composer and conductor Eric Whitacre, the idea of a virtual choir is nothing new because he pioneered the concept over 10 years ago. His first choir of 185 singers became a global phenomenon and has been seen by millions on YouTube. More virtual choir projects followed and the choir videos have featured as installations and as part of the 2012 Olympics and the Davos World Economic Forum.

In July 2020 Eric was preparing for the release of his 6th and largest Virtual Choir project. It involved 17,572 singers from around the world performing his new piece “Sing Gently” for which he’d written the words and the music. Emma Kingsley spoke to him for In The Studio about writing the music and his composition process which involves finding the perfect “golden brick” to create musical architecture.

In this updated repeat, Emma catches up with Eric to hear about his music-making since the release of Virtual Choir 6 – including a project intriguingly titled “The Beautiful Mess”.

London’s revolutionary kiss-in

Ted Brown is a black LGBT rights pioneer who helped organise the UK’s first Gay Pride march in 1972, featuring a mass ‘kiss-in’ that, at the time, would have been considered gross indecency, which was against the law. When Brown realised he was gay, homosexuality was illegal in Britain - the only person he came out to was his mother. She cried and told him he’d have to battle not just racism but homophobia too; both were rife in society at the time. At one point Brown felt so dismal about his future that he considered taking his own life. But inspired by the Stonewall Riots, he found hope in Britain’s Gay Liberation Front and became a key figure in fighting bigotry in the UK. He tells Emily Webb his moving life story.

The head of the OECD says progress is being made on a global minimum corporate tax rate. Angel Gurria is moving on from his role as secretary general of the body, which has been co-ordinating changes to global tax rules for years, and tells us the recent change of US administration has enabled plans to move forward. We get wider context to corporate tax harmonisation from Adam Hewson, who runs two bookshops in London, and reaction to the idea from Morgan Schondelmeier of the free market think tank the Adam Smith Institute. Also in the programme, the theft of catalytic converters from car exhausts has become a major problem, supported by international criminal networks. John Meyer is a mining analyst with the investment bank SP Angel, and explains how the rising price of metals used in the devices, such as platinum, is driving the crime. Edmund King, president of the UK's Automobile Association breakdown recovery group discusses the scale of the problem in the UK. And Paul Eisenstein, publisher of The Detroit Bureau tells us how theft of catalytic converters is spreading around the world.

The first African voice assistant

Speech smart assistants currently do not support any African language, but now Mozilla’s Common Voice project is building a dataset for Kiswahili which is spoken by more than a 100 million people in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi, and South Sudan. They have just been awarded almost $5m for the project. Remy the community lead at Common Voice Kinyarwanda and Chenai chair special adviser for Africa Innovation at the Mozilla Foundation tells us more about the work.

Federated Learning
As more of our data is processed through machine learning systems, Dr Nic Lane, of the Cambridge Computer Laboratory, explains a new way of processing and using our data without the need to send it through data centres. One solution to reduce the impact is federated learning – where data is processed on the edge, on your device, rather than being centralised. Not only does this reduce the environmental impact of computing, but it also has benefits for privacy and opens up opportunities for data sharing between companies.

Electronic VR socks
Reporter Claire Jordan has been investigating a novel approach to “walking” in a virtual reality. Existing ways are expensive and need considerable space to function, as well as having a less than satisfactory user experience. A new technology being developed by Professor Yusuke Matsuda of Toyohashi University of Technology in Japan could expand the reach of immersive VR movement to a much wider audience and deliver a better user experience than current solutions. The user wears electronic socks that create the feeling of walking in VR even though the user is sitting down. This could allow users to spend much longer in VR and also allow people with mobility issues to move around more freely, and possibly feel as though they are moving, in VR.

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

Despite being born with no arms, Matt’s talents have seen him win the US National Target Championship, shooting against able-bodied archers, as well as claiming the world record for longest accurate shot in archery.

When he’s not racing cars, he’s fixing them, and it’s no surprise that he loves comedy because his laugh is so infectious. Matt reveals how he has cultivated an attitude that has led to remarkable results, as well as providing inspiration to others.

Amilcar Cabral: An African liberation legend

In the 1960s and 70s, Amilcar Cabral led the armed struggle to end Portuguese colonial rule in Guinea Bissau and Cape Verde in West Africa. Cabral was an unusual rebel leader. He was an agricultural engineer, writer and poet who founded the liberation movement, the PAIGC, in 1956 to end Portuguese rule of his home country. In Guinea Bissau, the PAIGC fought a successful guerrilla war against a much larger Portuguese army. But Cabral was assassinated shortly before Portugal officially conceded independence in 1974. Alex Last spoke to former liberation fighter, Commander Manuel dos Santos about the struggle and his memories of Amilcar Cabral.

I was a teenager at Auschwitz

Holocaust survivor Dita Kraus is now in her nineties, but she was only 14 when she was taken to the Nazi concentration camp at Auschwitz in Poland. She worked in the children’s hut and she’s now known as the ‘librarian of Auschwitz’. Dita remembers being desperately hungry and cold, but along with her mother she survived her time there. After coming face to face with SS doctor Josef Mengele they were sent to Bergen-Belsen, another concentration camp, where she saw many people starving to death. Eventually the British army liberated the camp and they were freed, but Dita’s trials were not over. She tells Emily Webb her remarkable story. Dita has written a book about her experience called ‘A Delayed Life: The true story of the Librarian of Auschwitz’.

This programme was first broadcast in January 2020.

THU 02:32 Assignment (w3ct1gxb)
Syria’s decade of conflict: The battered champions of Aleppo

Syrian born reporter Lina Sinjab presents a special series from Assignment’s award winning archive on the ten years of civil war in her country.

This week she introduces Tim Whewell’s programme from 2016 about what happened to a local football team in Aleppo province in the early years of the civil war:

A fuzzy team photo from the 1980s sent Tim on a journey to track down the football players in the picture; the men who were once the champions of Aleppo province. Mare’a, their small hometown in northern Syria, had by then become a war zone - bombed by the Assad regime, besieged by Islamic State, even subjected to a mustard gas attack. And the civil war had torn through what was once a close knit band of friends - some had become pro-rebel, some pro-regime. They were scattered across Syria and beyond, some were fighting near Mare'a, some were living in refugee camps abroad. In this moving story about how war fractures and divides a community, Tim hears about the ordeals the men had suffered since they won that football cup and asks whether they could ever be reunited?

At the end of the programme, Lina catches up with Tim to find out what’s happened to the team members since 2016.

THU 04:32 The Food Chain (w3ct1rfn)
Do we need to talk about ‘ultra-processed food’?

The Food Chain delves into the world of ‘Ultra-Processed Food’ - a term coined in Brazil that has been provoking debate around the world.

Ultra Processed Food is a term that encompasses a broad range of common products from industrialised bread to breakfast cereals to chocolate bars. A growing body of evidence points to an association between their consumption and negative health outcomes including obesity, over-eating, depression, heart disease, and type-2 diabetes. Countries like Brazil are so concerned they are recommending people avoid UPFs all together. But in some of the world's most developed economies these foods make up, up to 80% of our diets, whilst the public understands very little about them.

Emily Thomas speaks to representatives from the food industry and people at the forefront of the science into UPFs to try to find out whether this is just another dietary buzzword that muddies the waters when it comes to improving the nation’s diets - OR whether it’s something we should ALL be talking about.

What are NFTs and are they really the next big thing?

In 2005 a photo of four-year-old Zoë Roth standing in front of a burning house went viral on the internet. It became a meme known as “disaster girl”. In April 2021, the image sold for $473,000 as an NFT, or non-fungible token - that’s sort of a digital record of ownership.

And the sales keep coming. Another NFT recently sold for $69 million. The first ever Tweet went for a huge $2.9 million … and a GIF of a pixelated rainbow cat sold for $690,000.

But what is an NFT, and is it really the next big thing? Suzanne Kianpour explores the world of NFT’s.

Gender and ethnicity: Barriers to business success?

There are so many barriers to running a successful business, but some surveys suggest that the ceiling is even higher if you throw in gender and race. We hear from four women who are working hard to change this. Dr Ava Brown, the CEO of skincare business Mango Girl explains how she feels when she goes to events where she's the only ethnic woman in the room. Collette Philip, founder of consultancy Brand By Me shares how she was refused credit because she didn't 'look like a strategist'.

Rock concert for Chernobyl

On May 31st 1986 a small group of musicians staged the first charity rock concert ever held in the USSR. It was organised in less than two weeks to raise money for the victims of the Chernobyl disaster. The nuclear reactor accident had happened just a month before in Ukraine. Some of the artists who played at the concert had been previously banned by the Soviet authorities, so the concert was a social revolution, as organiser - Artemy Troitsky explains to Rebecca Kesby.

Machiavelli, master of power

Over five hundred years ago, dismissed diplomat Niccolò Machiavelli produced his most famous work, The Prince. Written on the fringes of the Italian city of Florence, the book has long been read as a priceless guide to power and what holding it truly involves. But who was the man behind the work? Why did he claim that a leader must be prepared to act immorally? And why did the name of this one-time political insider become a byword for cunning and sinister strategy?

Rajan Datar explores the life and impact of Machiavelli’s The Prince with writer and scholar Erica Benner, historian professor Quentin Skinner, and journalist and novelist David Ignatius.

Curaçao-born Brigitha took home bronze medals in the 100 and 200-metres freestyle from the Montreal Olympic Games. Most of the swimmers Enith lost to were East Germans who - it was later revealed - had benefited from a state-sponsored doping programme. Enith Brigitha talks to Dan Hardoon.

The nightclub fire that rocked Romania

When Tedy Ursuleanu went to see a gig at the Colectiv nightclub in Bucharest, Romania, in the autumn of 2015, she was lucky to escape with her life. A fire swept through the venue, which only had one fire exit. Tedy sustained life-changing injuries, and 27 others died at the scene. The surviving victims were transferred to hospitals, but in the weeks that followed, they continued to die in large numbers. At Gazeta Sporturilor, one of the oldest sports newspapers in Europe, editor Catalin Tolontan watched events unfold. At first, he remembers, he and his team felt "almost paralysed" by events. Then, an informant contacted them. Tedy Ursuleanu and Catalin Tolontan give Emily Webb their perspectives on the fire that unseated a government, and uncovered a lethal network of corruption.

The haunting music of New York's 'Saw Lady'
If you descend into the New York subway system and listen carefully, you may hear an eerie sound. It is made by Natalia Paruz using an instrument that you more commonly find in a tool box than an orchestra. Colm Flynn went to find her. This item was first broadcast in 2017.

Nyiragongo eruption

The latest Nyiragongo eruption was not entirely unexpected, the volcano’s lava lake inside the crater had been building up for years. Local volcanologists say it was only a matter of time before an eruption occurred. The big concern was where the flank of the volcano would be breached as the city of Goma rests under the volcano and there are potential fissures even within the town.
However there are still questions over the effectiveness of seismic monitoring in the area, North Kivu. The Goma observatory has been unable to carry out this work due to a lack of funding. And monitoring is further complicated by the region’s long running civil war, with rebel groups often camped around the volcano.
We hear from Dario Tadesco and Cindy Ebinger. Who have both been monitoring developments.

Cyclone Yass was the second Cyclone to hit India within a week. Are these events becoming more common and are they related to rises in global temperatures? Climatologist Roxy Koll has been monitoring the situation.

Greenland’s pristine glaciers might not be so pristine. Jemma Wadham from Bristol university and her team have found unexpectedly high levels of Mercury in meltwaters - similar to those from industrial pollution. They say research now needs to focus on the impact for wildlife and people in the Arctic region.

And the elusive Sowerby’s beaked Whale doesn’t travel very much despite pockets of the species being found across the Atlantic. Kerri Smith has been researching this species, which is rarely seen alive. Using samples from whales beached or caught accidentally she was able to build up a picture of their distribution.

George Floyd: One year on

A year after George Floyd's death, what positives and negatives can Black Christians take away from the tragic series of events that unfolded?

In the year since, many black Christian groups have been at the forefront of large protests across the US. Leaders, the media and people from all communities have engaged in conversations about the future of race relations in United States. In addition, churches and church leaders began to work together to understand, to learn, and instigate change. But has the Church gone far enough and what part can and should Christians, both black and white, play in bringing together communities and tackling racism.

Professor Robert Beckford hosts a discussion featuring Revd. Minister Elijah McDavid III from The Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church in Minnesota, Dr. Love Sechrest who is Vice President for Academic Affairs at Columbia Theological Seminary and Dr Richard Land, President of Southern Evangelical Seminary in Charlotte and former faith advisor to President George W.

Why is corporate America getting political?

This week Exxon Mobil saw a board revolt over its stance on climate change. One of the energy giant's biggest shareholders supported rival directors to successfully replace two Exxon board members with more green-friendly candidates. This reflects a growing trend across the United States of corporations and investors being more willing to take a stand on climate, race and other social issues. Following the new and restrictive voter laws in Georgia, Major League Baseball pulled its All Star Game from the state. Nike announced a fund to help Black communities during the Black Lives Matter protests. While these moves are being welcomed by many activists and politicians, there's also been a backlash from those saying CEOs should focus on serving customers and not get involved in debates. So, what's behind corporate America's desire to delve into issues not necessarily linked to their companies' bottom line? Ritula Shah and a panel of experts discuss why corporate America is wading into politics.

Germany officially recognises Namibia genocide

Germany has promised $1.34bn to Namibia, after formally acknowledging its genocide there. German colonisers killed tens of thousands of Herero and Nama people in Namibia in early 20th Century massacres, and professor Ulrike Lindner of Cologne University explains the background. Also in the programme, we have an in depth report on a water dispute between Ethiopia and its neighbours over a huge hydro-electric dam it is building on the Nile. David Shinn is former US ambassador to Ethiopia and now with the Elliott School of International Affairs at George Washington University, and discusses the best case scenario for resolving the disagreement. Professor Aris Georgakakos of Georgia Tech argues that the new dam should be positive for all the nations involved. And we get wider context from Dr Tirusw Asefa, who is a water resources engineer based in Tampa, Florida. Plus, there is something of a mystery over a new $2.99 per month subscription service for Twitter, called Twitter Blue, which is now appearing in app stores. The Hong Kong-based technology blogger, Jane Manchun Wong, tells us what she is expecting the new service to offer.

Belarus plane: Lukashenko meets Putin

The leaders of Belarus and Russia are meeting in Sochi after the arrest of a Belarusian opposition journalist on a plane diverted to Minsk. It's an important meeting because of the alliance between President Lukashenko and President Putin, so the outcome could tell us more about what happens next. Our correspondent from BBC Russian will explain. We'll also get a former pilot to explain the implications of some airlines now avoiding Belarusian airspace.

As coronavirus vaccination programmes around the world have reached ever younger age groups - in countries with plentiful supplies - we bring together some of the youngest to get jabs so far. 12-year-olds Elle and Aine have had their shots in the US and Canada this month. Along with their parents, we'll hear about their decision, their experience and how they feel now about the future.

We'll also talk about the violence around forthcoming mayoral elections in Mexico, where it's reported 34 candidates have been killed so far.

Coronavirus conversations: Vaccinated at 12

With coronavirus vaccination programmes around the world reaching ever younger age groups - in countries with plentiful supplies - we bring together some of the youngest to get jabs so far. 12-year-olds Elle and Áine have had their shots in the US and Canada this month. Along with their parents, we'll hear about their decision, their experience and how they feel now about the future.

We're going to find out what is in the first budget of President Biden's administration later. We'll find out what it might mean for Americans, with the help of our business correspondent in New York.

And we'll explain the admission of genocide by Germany in what is now Namibia in southern Africa. German colonisers killed tens of thousands of people there in the early 20th century. The German Foreign Minister has asked for forgiveness and announced financial aid, so we'll hear about the response from Namibia.

Is my neighbour’s noise harming my health?

As millions more of us move to live in densely populated cities, we almost inevitably face living in closer proximity to our neighbours. Neighbour noise can certainly be a source of annoyance – but could it even be damaging to our health?
Increasing evidence suggests that unwanted noise can cause sleep deprivation, distraction and annoyance, as presenter Anand Jagatia finds out. He discovers that noise annoyance has a small but significant impact on our wider health – including our cardiovascular system – but that annoyance is not necessarily down to sound alone. Factors such as perception of the neighbourhood and relationships with our neighbours also play a part.
CrowdScience has examined living with unwanted noises before, and we revisit our trip to the acoustics lab at the University of Salford in Manchester, UK. Here, we meet the researchers and engineers investigating the best ways to make our homes more pleasant for our ears whilst still maintaining the ‘buzz’ of city life.
