China seeks to dominate AI

US officials are warning about China's ambitions in artificial intelligence, saying that the country could come to dominate in the field, giving the country unprecedented military advantage. Chris Meserole, an AI researcher with the Brookings in Washington DC, explains the concern. Also in the programme, The social media platform Twitter amplifies tweets from right-leaning political parties and news outlets more than from the left, its own research suggests. The tech giant said it made the discovery while exploring how its algorithm recommends political content to users. Anna Kramer at tech site Protocol explains the significance of this research. Plus, the BBC's Rahul Tandon explores the future of lavish Indian weddings, after they got a lot smaller during the pandemic.

All through the show we'll be joined by Sharon Brettkelly of Radio New Zealand.

India's next coach?

On this week’s episode, Alison Mitchell, Sunil Gupta and Jim Maxwell react to the speculation that Indian legend Rahul Dravid looks set to replace Ravi Shastri as head coach of the national team after the T20 World Cup and discuss what Shastri’s legacy will be.
Plus in the wake of comments made by India all-rounder Hardik Pandya about how money is extremely important for pushing a player to succeed in professional cricket, the team discuss the role of money as motivation.

With the Men’s T20 World Cup up and running we go behind the scenes in the Irish camp and speak to Shane Getkate. He is a reserve in the team and will tell us about the mood in the side and also his comeback story from cardiac arrest to playing for Ireland.

Finally, in 1994, a well-known chocolate brand created an advert in India which would become iconic - it saw a woman sat on the side-lines of a cricket match watching her male friend score a winning boundary and then running onto the field and dancing with delight. But fast forward to 2021 and the advert has been reimagined by swapping the gender roles and ending with the powerful message of #GoodLuckGirls as a tribute to women athletes. We speak to one of the stars of the new advert, Kavya Ramachandran.

The 1961 Paris massacre cover-up

It’s 60 years since a peaceful march in Paris ended in the killing of at least 100 Algerian protesters by the police. An extensive cover-up meant that almost nothing was known about it for several decades, and the true facts are still emerging. BBC Arabic’s Ahmed Rouaba has been looking into the story.

The Stallion of Yennenga
As film-makers gather for the FESPACO African film festival in Ouagadougou, the capital of Burkina Faso, we ask what’s the story behind the main prize, called the Stallion of Yennenga? Who was Yennenga, and where does the stallion come in? Answers from BBC Afrique's Leone Ouedraogo, who is Burkinabè herself.

When a cobra became a murder weapon
Last week a man was convicted of using a snake as a murder weapon. The victim was his wife, who was bitten by the hooded cobra, and died. The BBC’s Soutik Biswas in Delhi was one of the journalists following the story.

Venezuelan migrants in Chile
Last month, demonstrators in a town in northern Chile marched to settler camps housing Venezuelan migrants and set their belongings on fire. It's part of the rising tension in Chile between locals and migrants, as BBC Mundo contributor Paula Molina reports.

'Got to go'
Why is a cheerful rap song about a party making people cry in Hong Kong? The lyrics of Got to go are about leaving a party, but is there another interpretation? Cho Wai Lam from BBC Chinese tells us more about what this song means to Hongkongers.

SAT 03:50 Witness History (w3ct1wz7)
Britain’s lesbian families ‘scandal’

In January 1978 a London newspaper revealed how several British lesbians had conceived babies using donor sperm with the help of a respected gynaecologist. The doctor hadn’t broken any laws in providing the fertility treatment but the stigma surrounding homosexuality at the time meant the revelations started a media frenzy and a heated national debate. There were discussions in the press, in the streets and in Parliament. One MP called for a ban on the practice and called it ‘evil’, ‘selfish’ and ‘horrific’. Dr Gill Hanscombe had used artificial insemination to start a family with her two lesbian partners. When the press found out about them she was terrified that they were about to lose their jobs, and potentially their child. Produced and presented by Viv Jones.

SAT 04:06 The Real Story (w3ct1ht3)
Nato and China: A new rivalry?

This week in an interview with a British newspaper the Secretary General of Nato repeated his desire to widen its mandate to include China. His comments coincide with reports that Beijing has tested a hypersonic missile potentially capable of breaching US and European defences. There are concerns about China's cyber activities against Nato member states, as well as the country's increasing presence in the Arctic - raising fears over the security of Atlantic sea lanes. But some argue that Nato is in danger of going beyond its founding remit. That view is echoed by the likes of the French president who's warned that China has "little to do with the North Atlantic." So what should be the future shape of Nato? In the aftermath of its controversial withdrawal from Afghanistan, should the alliance focus more on events closer to home? And with the United States focusing its resources in Asia, is there a case to look beyond Nato and think about a broader European defence mechanism?

SAT 05:32 Trending (w3ct2yqj)
The Denial Files

1. The 'd-words' v the planet

How much do disinformation and new forms of climate change denial threaten the fight to save the planet?

In the first episode of a special new series running around the COP26 climate conference, BBC Trending speaks to a leading scientist who says the battle to prevent catastrophe may depend on winning the information war.

Professor Michael Mann first made headlines in 1998 when he published the pioneering “hockeystick graph” which showed how carbon emissions caused by human activity are harming the planet.

Since then mounting evidence has made it harder for the fossil fuel industry and its allies to deny the existence of man-made climate change.

The overwhelming majority of scientists agree that we are now at a turning point where only urgent and dramatic action can save humanity.

In November world leaders will gather at in Scotland to agree targets for cutting admissions. Many observers regard it as our last best chance to avert disaster.

Professor Mann argues that in the face of this reality, what he calls “the forces of inaction” have developed new strategies to try to prevent humanity from kicking its addiction to oil, gas and coal.

So does the future of life on earth depend on understanding the playbook of these new climate war tactics?

From start-up to success: Women rolling the dice in business

The stereotype in the entrepreneurial world is that women are too risk averse to lead companies. But is that true? Kim Chakanetsa talks to two women who turned their start-ups into successful enterprises.

Linh Thai is one of Vietnam’s top female entrepreneurs. She was brought up in the USA, after her mother fled their war-torn home country with Linh and her sister, who died during the journey. Her mum’s leap of faith inspired Linh to move back to Vietnam and become an entrepreneur. She is now a co-star on the investment reality show Shark Tank Vietnam and founder of TVL Group, a workplace skills training company focused on early- and mid-career professionals.

Monica Musonda is a Zambian lawyer who decided to quit her high-flying corporate career to start her own company. She’s now the CEO of Java Foods, a food processing company providing affordable nutrition to the southern African market. She is one of the few Zambian women involved in manufacturing and agro-processing and she is a member of the UN Lead Group of the Scaling Up Nutrition Movement.

Why taking the knee is still needed

When the first whistle blows in the Premier League most players will drop to one knee as a way of highlighting racial injustice and supporting positive change. It's something that has happened at Premier League matches since the death of George Floyd in 2020. But has 'taking the knee' lost its impact? We hear from former athlete Michelle Moore whose new book 'Real Wins' is described as an urgent call to action from one of the most influential women in sport.

With the UCI Track Cycling World Championships taking place in France we hear from Canadian sprint legend Gordon Singleton, the only man to hold all three sprint world records at the same time, about just how special it is to win a world title.

Plus as the W-Series, the premier women’s driving championship comes, to an end this weekend we preview the final round of races with one of the drivers, Jessica Hawkins. But you won’t just see Jessica on the track she’s on the big screen too, in the latest Bond film! Jessica tells us how she juggles being a racing car driver and a Hollywood stunt woman.

One of the most significant people in football history was honoured earlier this month with a special plaque on his grave, but you've most likely never heard of him. Andrew Watson played back in the 1880's when the game itself was still developing. Watson played a crucial part in making football the sport we'd recognise today. What makes Watson's story all the more remarkable was that he was black. In fact he was the first black man to play international football when he captained Scotland in 1881. Llew Walker has written a book about this remarkable man and why his story had previously been lost to history.

It's been a busy week in Basketball on Thursday the NBA released it 75th anniversary team, a list of the great and good from today and yesteryear. The season's opening has been somewhat overshadowed by the issue of Covid vaccination with Brooklyn Nets guard Kyrie Irving refusing to take the jab, meaning he cannot play. All this after the WNBA completed it's thrilling season with victory for the Chicago Sky. So plenty to get our teeth into with Basketball journalist Lindsay Dunn.

How can India, Inc. be a part of the space race?

The global space industry is expected to be worth about $1 trillion by 2040. India hopes to tap into this increasingly lucrative market, but the country presently holds only about 2% of the world’s space economy. To change that, it is now encouraging private players to drive innovation in space technology.

Will the recent opening up of this sector help meet its space goals? How can space tech startups bring in solutions to resolve ground problems? And will Indian space tourism be a reality in the coming years?

In this edition of WorklifeIndia, we discuss how Indian businesses can get ahead in the space race.

SAT 12:06 The Story of Aids (w3ct2wp9)
3. Aids denialism in South Africa

South Africa is the epicentre of the global HIV-Aids epidemic - a crisis rooted in the country's long history of political turmoil.

When Aids began to emerge in the USA and Europe in the 1980s, South Africa was a fractured country, divided by Apartheid. During this time, the ruling National Party seemed disinterested in preventing a disease which was mainly affecting black people and gay men.

But the fall of Apartheid and the inauguration of President Nelson Mandela didn't improve the situation - the country's first black president was overwhelmed with rebuilding a fragile nation, and the problem of HIV-Aids was pushed down the list of government priorities.

But perhaps the most malignant factor shaping South Africa's response to the Aids crisis, was the influence of President Thabo Mbeki, who bought into conspiracies and misinformation, propagated by a fervent Aids denialism movement.

Put simply, Aids denialists reject the established science of HIV-Aids - including central truths that HIV is the cause of Aids. There's also a belief that life-saving antiretroviral drugs are actually toxic, and further exacerbate disease by destroying the body's DNA - which is also untrue.

We explore how the architect of Aids denialism made his way into President Mbeki's inner circle, and how a reluctance to follow medical science had devastating consequences for the country.

The three things you need to write a song, with Zara Larsson, Nina Nesbitt, Brian Higgins, Darin and Jörgen Elofsson

Zara Larsson, Nina Nesbitt, Brian Higgins, Darin and Jörgen Elofsson discuss how important avoiding competition is, how getting dropped from a label affects your self-esteem and the creative process, and how difficult being both a fan of music and a musician can be.

Darin is a Kurdish-Swedish vocalist. He started writing songs at 14 and signed his first record deal at 17. He’s co-written with pop icon Robyn, released 8 albums, set up his own record company, and is now the most played artist on Swedish radio.

Swedish star Zara Larsson is one of the world's biggest pop singers, topping charts in multiple countries. Her third album, Poster Girl, was released back in March.

Scottish singer-songwriter Nina Nesbitt is known for her bubblegum Pop songs and viral TikTok videos. She’s worked with Ed Sheeran, written for Jessie Ware, and calls Taylor Swift a fan.

Brian Higgins has written major hits for artists like Kylie, Pet Shop Boys, Bananarama and Girls Aloud. He co-wrote Cher’s Grammy-winning hit Believe in 1998, which sold more than 11 million copies worldwide, and won him three Ivor Novello Awards.

And Grammy-nominated songwriter Jörgen Elofsson hass written for Celine Dion and Britney Spears, was behind Kelly Clarkson’s pop anthem Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You) and Will Young’s Evergreen, which became the UK’s fastest selling debut single in its first week.

Red blood cells’ surprising immune function

We’ve talked a huge amount the past 18 months, for obvious reasons, about the way that white blood cells protect us from infection. But red blood cells – it’s probably among the earliest things I learned in human biology that they’re simple bags for carrying oxygen around the body. But over recent years, immunologist Nilam Mangalmurti, University of Pennsylvania, has been finding several clues to challenge that dogma – including molecules on the surface of red blood cells known from other parts of the immune system.

The Last Ice Area, home to the oldest and thickest ice in the Arctic, is expected to act as the last refuge for ice-dependent wildlife as the rest of the Arctic melts. Kent Moore, University of Toronto-Mississauga, tells us that the formation of a 3,000 square kilometre rift in the area means the ice is not as resilient as we once thought.

Also on the programme, an obituary for the renowned Dutch climate scientist and physicist Geert Jan van Oldenborgh (October 22, 1961 – October 12, 2021), and, Dominique Gonçalves, Gorongosa National Park, explains how ivory poaching during the Mozambican civil war led to the rapid evolution of tusklessness in African elephants.

'To be or not to be' was never your decision. No one alive today is an 'exister' by consent - your parents made that call for you. But who can blame them? Animals are hardwired with strong impulses towards their procreative goals, and we humans, by and large, are no different. But for some conscientious people alive today, this most fundamental of biological impulses is butting up against a rational pessimism about the future...

With apocalyptic scenes of natural disasters, rising sea levels and global pandemics causing existential dread and actual suffering, it's understandable that CrowdScience listener Philine Hoven from Austria wrote to us asking for help her make sense of what she sees as the most difficult question she faces - should she have children.

In this episode, presenter Geoff Marsh helps Philine to predict what kind of a world her hypothetical child might inhabit, and explores the impact their existence, or indeed non-existence might have on society and the planet. Plus, we'll explore how medical ethicists can help us to navigate the moral landscape of the unborn. Brooding or broody, this is essential listening for any prospective parents.

Nostalgia for the Gaddafi era?

Libya has been marking an anniversary of sorts this week: ten years since the dictator Colonel Muammar Gaddafi was killed, having been toppled from power. Since then, elections have been held, and a much-delayed election for a new President is due at the end of this year. But the country's still deeply divided and armed militias still vying for power. Perhaps not surprising in these circumstances that a few Libyans express some nostalgia for the days of the "Brother Leader", despite his human rights abuses. Tim Whewell talked to one of those who remain loyal even now - who was once Gaddafi’s advisor, and sometime interpreter.

With just days to go until the COP26 summit on climate change, there’s ever more pressure being applied to countries to explain how they propose to get to net zero - how to reach the point where they're not putting any more net carbon dioxide to the atmosphere. But there’s an island in Denmark which has already gone one stage further and become “carbon negative.” Ritula Shah went to Samsoe to find out how they've done it.

During its twenty-year presence in Afghanistan, the American-led intervention brought in billions of dollars’ worth of gear - from vehicles to uniforms, helicopters to tasers. Now quite a lot of that kit seems to have found its way into the hands of smugglers, who brought it across the border into neighbouring Pakistan. Some of these spoils of war are sold furtively in small towns and border posts, but one Lahore shopkeeper is selling the goods very openly. Ali Kazmi heard how he feels about making a living by selling off the spoils of war.

When most people think of ancient mummies, they think of ancient Egypt. But in fact, the oldest deliberately preserved human mummies in the world come from Chile. They were discovered in 1917 by a German archaeologist, but it took decades for the mummies to be correctly radio-carbon dated, and identified as part of the Chinchorro civilisation. They’re still not on the global tourist map, as the Egyptian pyramids and their long-dead occupants are - but people in the heart of what was once Chinchorro country are hoping that might change soon. Jane Chambers went to the city of Arica to see the mummies for herself.

The lost art of breathing

After recovering from pneumonia for the third time, journalist James Nestor took decisive action to improve his lungs. He questioned why so many humans - and only humans - have to contend with stuffy noses, snoring, asthma, allergies, sinusitis and sleep apnoea, to name but a few.

James hears remarkable stories of others who have changed their lives through the power of breath. His deep dive into the unconscious and oft-ignored act of human respiration offers us all a way to breathe easier.

With contributions from Dr Richard Brown, who worked with 9/11 survivors; Dr Margaret Chesney, professor of medicine at the University of California, San Francisco on screen apnoea; Mandar Apte and Rosa Lagunas on Sudarshan Kriya Yoga; Chuck McGee III on the Wim Hof Method; Dr Andrew Hubermann, professor of neurobiology at Stanford University on the brain-body relationship and Dr Kevin Boyd, paediatric dentist, on the changes to the human skull.

A farmer's nightmare

The UK food industry relies on foreign workers, but what happens when they stop coming?
A combination of COVID-19 and Brexit has led to fewer workers available to pick, process and transport food. For some farmers it has led to heartbreaking dilemmas. Tamasin Ford speaks to two pig farmers who face having to kill thousands of healthy pigs, and a salad farmer who has seen millions of lettuce heads rot in his fields.

4. The great chemistry experiment

Justin looks at the period since the meteor that wiped out the dinosaurs, which had seen a steadily cooling climate - until we humans turned up. What can the last 66 million years teach us about the likely consequences of climate change? And can our species make the next big evolutionary leap needed to tackle it?

Adrian Lister of the Natural History Museum gives Justin a fossilised tour of how the Earth's fauna adapted to this changing climate. Cardiff University's Carrie Lear explains how human carbon emissions have already turned the clock back some three million years to a time when sea levels were 20 metres higher. But that's not the only way our carbon emissions are meddling with the oceans, as Daniela Schmidt of Bristol University warns. Plus evolutionary theorist Eors Szathmary explains how climate change could be the ultimate test of whether humans can complete the next great leap in evolution of life on Earth.

Trying to save the Latin Mass

Communities that celebrate with the Latin Mass have prospered. Now, Pope Francis has ruled that Catholics may only use the Latin Mass if their bishops agree to let them. Instead of a rule of tolerance for the Old Rite, wherever Catholics want it, there will be tolerance on a case-by-case basis. Many traditionally-minded Catholics believe that what is at stake here is the soul of the Catholic church, with a liberal old guard, with Francis at their head, hoping to snuff out a rising generation of conservatives before they take over.

In France, the more old-fashioned Catholics still often have very large families and, proportionately, many more of their sons become priests. In this edition of Heart and Soul, France-based correspondent John Laurenson takes us into the extraordinary world of traditional Catholicism in France. We go to Versailles, the former seat of the ardently-Catholic monarchy, that is today the unofficial capital of the ‘tradi’ movement. John meets young Catholics to find out what attracts so many young believers to the Old Rite.

Denmark’s Red Van

Every weekend night in Copenhagen’s red light district of Vesterbro, a group of volunteers pull up and park a Red Van. This is no ordinary vehicle. The interior is lit with fairy lights. There is a bed – and a ready supply of condoms. The Red Van constitutes a harm reduction strategy like no other. It is designed for use by women selling sex on the streets – somewhere they can bring their clients. Just as health workers might argue addicts should have a safe place where they can take their drugs to prevent overdoses, the Red Van NGO’s volunteers believe they are creating a more secure environment for Copenhagen’s sex workers or prostitutes.

Sarah Bernhardt: Queen of stage and screen

Whether photographed in a coffin or depicted on an Art Nouveau poster, the French actor Sarah Bernhardt knew exactly how to get maximum publicity. Although her first outings on the stage were unremarkable, she refined her skills and rose to become the leading actor of her generation and a world-famous name. Her life off-stage was a further source of endless fascination, her eccentric and occasionally arrogant behaviour only adding to her allure. Her critics saw her as manipulative and hackneyed. For her admirers, seeing Bernhardt ‘die’ on stage was a moment to be treasured for ever.

Bridget Kendall charts Sarah Bernhardt’s life and career with John Stokes, emeritus professor of modern British literature at King’s College London and author of The French Actress and Her English Audience; Victoria Duckett, senior lecturer in screen and design at Deakin University in Melbourne and the author of Seeing Sarah Bernhardt: Performance and Silent Film; and Sharon Marcus, the Orlando Harriman professor of English and comparative literature at Columbia University. Her 2019 book The Drama of Celebrity is an exploration of the processes that propel a figure such as Sarah Bernhardt to global fame.

ASEAN summit quandry

The 10 member countries of the ASEAN group of nations, like Indonesia, the Philippines and Vietnam will hold a summit in Brunei this week. But Tuesday's meeting has already run into controversy, after the group excluded Myanmar, amid concerns about the military rulers undermining democracy. Countries in South East Asia are also wary of taking sides in the economic and political standoff between China and the United States and Beijing's growing dominance in the region is causing concern.

Also in the programme, why are more Americans buying homes in areas where the risk of wild weather is greater?

Plus, the expansion of Russian energy exploration in the Arctic.

And - in China the police have adopted an unusual method of encouraging senior citizens to recognise fraud. Officers give lessons in how to avoid becoming a victim of a scam, but then test the older people on what they've learned in class, with those who pass offered free products from a local supermarket.

What will it take for countries to keep their climate promises?

Experts say the conference, known as COP26, could be the last chance for governments to agree on a way to cut global emissions in half by 2030.
It’s also an opportunity to assess how well they have been doing with previous targets to prevent average global temperatures from rising beyond 1.5 degrees Celsius, agreed at a big climate meeting in Paris in 2015.
According to the Climate Action Tracker, The Gambia is thought to be one of the only countries with plans in line with 1.5 degrees.
What further commitments will leaders from the rest of the world arrive with at COP26 and what will it take for countries to keep those climate promises?

Summer Nasser is the CEO of Yemen Aid, an INGO established in late 2016 by a group of Yemeni-American women in response to the crisis in the country where, according to the UN, 80% of the population need humanitarian assistance and 1.2 million pregnant and breastfeeding women are acutely malnourished. Yemen Aid is one of the organisations providing humanitarian relief to thousands of people on the ground.

Saving the Amazon with economics

The Amazon is the world's largest rainforest but this crucial carbon sink is facing increased deforestation. Land clearing for mining or agriculture has increased under Brazil's president Jair Bolsanaro. But the world needs the Amazon jungle to keep absorbing carbon if more ambitious climate goals are to be met. Is there a place for the private sector to step in where governments have failed? Vivienne Nunis hears from economist Nat Keohane about a new not-for-profit called Emergent. It acts as a kind of middle man, connecting tropical forests with corporations searching for ways to cancel out their emissions. Can it work? Also on the programme, journalist Karla Mendes explains how many Brazilians feel about the Amazon's plight, while Robert Muggah from the Igarapé Institute tells us companies such as Google have stepped up to help with deforestation mapping, when government agencies had their budgets cut.

Should I have kids?

"To be or not to be” was never your decision. No one alive today is an “exister” by consent - your parents made that call for you. But who can blame them? Animals are hardwired with strong impulses towards their procreative goals, and we humans, by and large, are no different. But for some conscientious people alive today, this most fundamental of biological impulses is butting up against a rational pessimism about the future...

With apocalyptic scenes of natural disasters, rising sea levels and global pandemics causing existential dread and actual suffering, it's understandable that CrowdScience listener Philine Hoven from Austria wrote to us asking for help her make sense of what she sees as the most difficult question she faces - should she have children?

In this episode, presenter Geoff Marsh helps Philine to predict what kind of a world her hypothetical child might inhabit, and explores the impact their existence, or indeed non-existence might have on society and the planet. Plus, we'll explore what ‘antinatalism’- a philosophical stance which argues against procreation, can tell us about the moral landscape of the unborn. With Ms Caroline Hickman, Professor Mike Berners-Lee, Professor Noriko Tsuya and Professor David Benatar.

"I'm a fighter": The Dalit lawyer taking on the caste system

Manjula Pradeep was born in Western India to a Dalit family, a community considered to be on the lowest rung of the caste ladder. Growing up she experienced discrimination and indignity because of her background, but she excelled at school, and managed to defy expectations to become a lawyer and high-profile activist. Now she's helping Dalit rape survivors get access to justice. Manjula spoke to Divya Arya.

Joy Harjo survived prejudice and abuse, failed marriages and single motherhood to become one of America's most acclaimed poets. In 2019, she was appointed the US Poet Laureate, becoming the first Native American in history to be awarded the post. Her poetry is deeply rooted in indigenous histories and myths but part of her inspiration comes from jazz, including the Miles Davis tracks her father played in the car when she was a child. Joy's latest poetry collection is called An American Sunrise and this year, she was appointed to a third term as Poet Laureate. Joy spoke to Outlook's Emily Webb in May 2020.

Sudan military dissolves civilian government

Sudan's military has dissolved civilian rule, arrested political leaders and declared a state of emergency. Protesters have taken to the streets of the capital, Khartoum and there are reports of gunfire.

Military and civilian leaders have been at odds since long-time ruler Omar al-Bashir was overthrown two years ago and a transitional government set up. Gen Abdel Fattah Burhan, who had been heading a joint council with civilian leaders, blamed political infighting for the coup. We'll hear from the US special envoy to the country, opposition activists, and the international community.

Also in the programme, how cities can develop resilience in the face of climate change, the millions of civilians braced for a bleak winter in Afghanistan, and we hear about the world’s oldest known animal cave painting on the Indonesian island of Sulawesi.

Chilean mummies

Think of ancient mummies, and you might imagine Egyptian pharaohs in their highly decorated cases. But in actual fact, Chile has the oldest mummies in the world. Unesco recently addded the archaeological sites and the artificial mummification of the Chinchorro culture to its World Heritage List. Around 300 mummies have been excavated from three different sites in the north of the country, near the border with Peru. The nomination took decades of work, drawing on many years of different scientific studies.

Jane Chambers travels to Arica in northern Chile to find out more about the Chinchorro culture and how they used mummification to remember their dead, 7000 years ago.

100 Women: The mushroom woman

This is the story of Chido Govera aka The Mushroom Woman. It is a story about her home, Zimbabwe. And it is also a story about mushrooms.

It never should have happened. Chido, an orphan, became the provider in her family aged seven. At 10 she was destined to marry a man 30 years older than her. But a chance encounter led her to discover the almost magical science of mushroom cultivation at a local university, and set her life on a very different course.

Cultivating mushrooms is unlike growing any other vegetable. Micro-organisms in organic matter provide fuel for air-bound silvery thread-like 'mycelium'. These anchor in damp soil and then quickly, tiny mushroom pins appear. Chido was enthralled by the way mushrooms emerge from next to nothing and colonise plant material. It reminded her of her Grandmother, who took Chido foraging for mushrooms in the forest as a child. From humble beginnings, mushrooms grow.

Chido realised she could grow these curious fungi in maize waste. She could feed herself and her family, and make a little money. What if she could teach other orphans to grow and sell edible mushrooms to provide an income? So that is what Chido did.

Today Chido runs a foundation training 1000s of other growers, mainly women and orphans, in Zimbabwe, and across Africa and the world. We hear their stories and discover the mysterious world of fungi.

Sandy Rodriguez: When art, geography and politics collide

Los Angeles-based artist Sandy Rodriguez grew up on the California-Mexico border, descended from three generations of Mexican painters.

For In The Studio, reporter Laura Hubber follows Sandy as she creates large-scale map paintings, which tell the story of the current political moment, while harnessing methods and materials from indigenous Mexican culture. These maps explore issues of immigration – deportations, separated migrant children and protests – against the backdrop of California’s majestic desert landscape.

Sandy sees her role as ‘tlacuilo’, a Nahua word meaning artist, scribe and sage. This is demonstrated in her unique practice as she creates the maps by collecting clippings of local plants, grinding and boiling them to make her own pigments, and painting onto traditional amate paper – all techniques that come from indigenous Mexican teachings.

The first international conference on the problems of the environment took place in Stockholm in 1972. It didn't concentrate on climate change but on the damage that was being done to animals and forests by the encroachment of humans and industry.

Maurice Strong, who organised the gathering, spoke to Claire Bowes about why it was so difficult to get the countries of the world to agree on change.

This is the story of Joel, his adoptive mum, Julie, and the birth mother that he never forgot, all in conversation with Outlook's Emily Webb. This interview was first broadcast in 2017.

Indian activist Sindhutai Sapkal never experienced maternal love. Her life, however has been defined by it. She is known as ‘mother of orphans’ and is believed to have adopted more than 1,400 children. But astonishingly she ended up giving away her biological daughter, Mamata, raising interesting questions of family and forgiveness. This interview was first broadcast in 2019.

Online safety laws

This week former Facebook employee and whistleblower, Frances Haugen, was speaking to the committee that’s discussing the UK’s draft online safety bill, legislation that will tackle harmful content online. Canada is working on similar legislation. But there are questions over policing the new laws and over freedom of speech. Gareth Mitchell discusses these issues with Professor Lee Edwards of the Department of Media and Communications at LSE in London who has been involved in a submission to the Online Safety Bill Committee.

Venezuela is rapidly turning its back on cash. An ongoing economic crisis and an inflation rate of 2,500% are driving Venezuelans toward digital payments. Leo Schwartz of the technology news website restofworld.org explains more.

And Thom Hoffman reports on a project in India to put solar panels over canals. Not only do you get renewable energy, but the shade from the panels stops so much of the valuable water underneath from evaporating.

The programme is presented by Gareth Mitchell with expert commentary from Angelica Mari.

Sudanese general says his coup avoids civil war

In Sudan, the military leader has been trying to justify his decision on Monday to rip up the power-sharing arrangement with civilian forces and seize sole power. General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan has said it was done to prevent a civil war. The UN Secretary General has described it as a coup. A senior opposition leader calls for calm heads.

Also in the programme, Colombian president Ivan Duque discusses climate change and catching the country’s top drug lord. And, Europol has announced that it has arrested 150 people buying and selling drugs and illegal items on the dark web.

China telecoms licence revoked in US

The United States has revoked China Telecom’s licence to operate in the country, citing “national security” concerns. The BBC's Zhaoyin Feng is based in Washington and tells us what this means for relations between the two countries. During a rocky time for the shipping industry, after the impact of the pandemic on global freight, companies are grappling with how to keep customers who want to go green. Fergus Nicoll has been looking at ways the industry is developing environmentally sustainable alternatives. And the return of rodeos in the US is helping to boost small town economies. We discuss all this with guests Lien Hoang, a reporter for Nikkei Asia who is based in Vietnam, and Mitchell Hartman from Marketplace in Portland, Oregon.

9. The power couple

An eyewitness account from the presidential palace as the Taliban encircle Kabul.

He was the president’s chief of staff, she was the ambassador in Washington. Both were appointed by President Ghani: Matin Bek, the son of a warlord, and Adela Raz, the daughter of an intellectual. They were Afghanistan’s ultimate power couple. Matin was in the presidential palace the day the capital fell to the Taliban. He describes the moment he realised, uncomprehending, that the president had fled. The palace, he says, was “the safest place in Afghanistan” that day. Adela, in Washington, had just woken up when she realised that something was terribly wrong. “Get out now,” she told her husband. Matin’s assessment looking back on the past few years: “The government failed and I was part of it.”

Also today: the United States will appeal to extradite Wikileaks founder Julian Assange - they want him to face charges on American soil. The request was rejected by a British judge earlier this year.

Exactly where, how and when did the Covid pandemic begin? The list of international scientists who will be charged with finding out are due to be confirmed today.

Net zero: Do corporate pledges make any difference?

But do these pledges actually make any difference in the flight against climate change? We here both sides of the argument with climate futurist Alex Steffen based in California, and Simon Glynn, the co-lead on Climate and Sustainability, at the UK management consultants, Oliver Wyman.

People used to stare at me. I fight back with my paintbrush

American artist Riva Lehrer was born with spina bifida. She endured countless medical procedures through her childhood and adolescence and was told she would never have a job, a romantic relationship or an independent life. But everything changed when as an adult Riva was invited to join the Disabled Artists Collective, a group of artists, writers and performers who were challenging myths around disability in their work. She tells Emily Webb how she began to paint their portraits - and through her art started to transform the stories she’d been told about herself. (This interview contains language that some listeners might find offensive)
 
Nigerian writer Wole Soyinka is a literary legend; a poet, playwright and essayist who became Africa’s first Nobel Laureate in 1986. He has just published a new novel for the first time in half a century. He tells Outlook’s Helen Oyibo in Lagos how he endured two years of political detention during Nigeria’s civil war. This interview was first broadcast in February 2020.

Economic impact of Sudan coup deepens

Two days after Sudan's armed forces seized complete control of the government, the African Union has suspended Sudan from the organisation until the civilian-led transitional administration is restored.

What will the economic effect of the coup and the overthrow of the administration be? Demonstrations against the takeover are continuing in the capital, Khartoum, with trade unions representing doctors, oil workers and bank officials joining the protests. We hear from Abdul Rashid Halifa from the Sudanese Banking Association and Mo Ibrahim, a prominent British-Sudanese businessman and one of Africa's richest men.

Also in the programme, we speak to the only top-level male professional footballer currently playing who has come out as gay, how Russia’s state-owned gas company Gazprom is causing a gas crisis in Moldova, and why China is advocating for Afghanistan's Taliban to have dialogue with the international community.

The UK economy was hit incredibly hard by the pandemic and its recovery is not yet complete. The government has said the economy should return to its pre-Covid level at the turn of the year -- earlier than previously thought. But it's still several months after the US reached the same point. In the annual budget announced today, the UK finance minister said that economic growth will be be back to pre-pandemic levels by the end of 2022 and for the public to expect inflation to hit 4%. We get analysis from economist Roger Bootle on how the UK is faring relative to other countries in Europe and beyond.

Also in the programme, we look at why has the iconic French fashion house Jean Paul Gaultier - known for cone-shaped corsets worn by Madonna for example - decided to allow people to rent some of its most iconic pieces?

US budget row

There are intensive discussions on Capitol Hill to try and break the deadlock over his proposed $3.5 trillion spending plans. Those plans have lead to deep divisions in his own Democratic Party. So how close to a deal are we? We get analysis from Natalie Andrews, Congress Reporter for the Wall Street Journal. And is Russia using energy as a political weapon? The question is frequently asked in Europe and it's now being asked in Moldova, a former Soviet Republic that's been trying to move away from Russia's orbit and develop closer ties to the EU. It follows the decision by the Russian state-owned gas company Gazprom to reduce supplies to Moldova and to threaten to suspend them completely. Moscow correspondent Steve Rosenberg has been to Moldova to find out what’s behind the latest gas crisis.

Climate of Fear: Lytton burns

The worst effects of climate change are often framed as a problem for the future. But for some, the worst has already happened. As world leaders prepare to gather in Glasgow to talk about how to bring down emissions, Assignment tells the story of three places which have been at the sharp end of extreme weather events. In June, the Canadian village of Lytton smashed national heat records three days running, reaching an astonishing 49.6 degrees Celsius. Then, it burned to the ground. This documentary, the first in the series, is a vivid portrayal of a place in the crosshairs of climate change, where people don’t just have to imagine the future. They’re now figuring out how to build it.

Selassie Atadika: My life in five dishes

Selassie Atadika spent a decade working for the UN in some of the world’s most volatile regions, and it led to a realisation - that food has an essential role to play in rebuilding economies and bringing communities together.

The Ghanaian chef is now on a mission to revive many of Africa’s lost or forgotten foods, and make the rest of the world sit up and take notice.

She tells Emily Thomas how, aged five, she was forced to flee her home in Ghana following a military coup, and why she caused a ‘scandal’ in her family by dropping her plans to be a doctor for a career in humanitarian work.

Selassie is now gaining international acclaim for Midunu, a nomadic restaurant she set up in her family’s former home in Accra, which embodies what she calls ‘new African cuisine’. She explains how she wants to use it to make the continent healthier, wealthier, and greener.

And we head to Russia where there's resentment among the fully vaccinated as a tough lockdown comes in to force today because of rising numbers.

Do climate conferences make a difference?

COP 26 is just around the corner and expectations are high that nations commit to reduce CO2 emissions.
Global temperature rises are set to exceed levels at which things could get much worse and so the question is extremely urgent.
But three decades since countries first came together to tackle environmental concerns, the pandemic may limit what can be achieved.

The $200,000 starting salary

How does a $200,000 starting salary sound? That’s now the industry standard for newly qualified lawyers at big corporate law firms in the US and the UK. But before you sign on the dotted line consider that in exchange for your princely wage packet, 100 working weeks and being on-call 24 hours a day could be part of that deal. So is it all worth it? Elizabeth Hotson speaks to ‘recovering lawyer’ Taly Matiteyahu, whilst Christopher Clark, Director of legal head hunting firm, Definitum Search explains why salaries have got so high and Stephen Parkinson, a senior partner at law firm, Kingsley Napley sets out some alternatives to the status quo. Plus, a practising corporate lawyer in New York tells us about his work schedule and Anna Lovett, an Associate Solicitor at law firm Burnetts, tells us about changing attitudes to work. And Charlene Bourliout, an ex-lawyer and burnout consultant offers some strategies for coping with an overwhelming workload.

The child climate activist of the 1990s

Long before Greta Thunberg, there was 12-year-old Severn Cullis-Suzuki, the girl who stood in front of world leaders and implored them to take action to save our environment. Speaking at the 1992 UN Earth Summit in Rio De Janeiro, Severn caught the attention of the media with her passion and anger. Severn has been speaking to Phil Marzouk about her feelings then and how they’ve changed over the intervening decades.

A focus on spectacles

If you had to name the innovations that have transformed human civilisation, you might suggest the printing press or the Internet, but the humble pair of spectacles has also revolutionised the way many of us experience the world. It's said that an astonishing three quarters of those in the US use glasses or contact lenses to correct their vision. And the World Health Organisation estimates that more than a billion people in low-and-middle income countries are living with sight problems that could be corrected by the right pair of specs. But how and when were glasses first invented? What impact have they had on societal development? And what are some of the ways we've stigmatised, or even elevated, people who wear them?

Joining Rajan Datar to explore the history of spectacles are Travis Elborough, a historian of popular culture from the UK. He’s recently published a book called Through The Looking Glasses: The Spectacular Life of Spectacles; Stefana Sabin, a German literary scholar and the author of In The Blink of an Eye – A Cultural History of Spectacles – which has just been translated into English; and Professor Kovin Naidoo, Senior Vice President in social impact at the French-based optics company, Essilor. He’s also former CEO of the Brien Holden Vision Institute. He originally trained as an optometrist in his native South Africa.

Miss Pat: The Chinese-Jamaican matriarch of reggae

In the late 1950s, Patricia Chin – aka Miss Pat – abandoned a career in nursing and, with her husband Vincent, started selling old jukebox records out of a grocery store. Their business moved to downtown Kingston and would grow into Randy’s Record Mart, Jamaica’s most famous record store. Upstairs, Vincent set up Studio 17 and worked with some of reggae’s biggest stars – Bob Marley and the Wailers, Lee ’Scratch’ Perry, Alton Ellis and John Holt. But political instability in the 1970s would force them to flee their beloved home. Miss Pat, with just a few dollars, had to rebuild her life and her business. Now, her family runs VP Records, one of the world’s largest reggae and dancehall labels. Her book is called Miss Pat: My Reggae Journey.

Some UN forests emit more carbon dioxide than they absorb

New research shows that several UN-protected forests are now emitting more carbon dioxide than they can absorb, mostly because of wildfires.

Ten forest sites that enjoy World Heritage status from the UN's scientific and cultural arm, Unesco are now said to be affected. It's a change that has recently been observed in the world's biggest rainforest, the Amazon.

Also in the programme, Russia records its worst day for Covid infections and deaths - tighter restrictions have just come into force in Moscow but some are sceptical. We hear from Nigeria about the return of the first Benin Bronzes, which were looted in colonial times, and how not finding something reveals more about the origins of the universe.

Can we still avoid climate catastrophe?

Just a few days before COP26 opens in Glasgow, the World Meteorological Organisation reported record greenhouse gas levels, despite a fall in CO2 due to pandemic restrictions. The UN Environment Programme’s Emissions Gap Report also revealed that current country pledges will only take 7.5% off predicted greenhouse gas emissions by 2030, well below the 55% needed to limit global warming to 1.5C. Worse still, many large emission producers are not on track to meet their countries’ pledges.

Rachel Warren, Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, tells us the 1.5C limit is still achievable if we work in tandem with nature. Research by Sara Mikaloff-Fletcher, National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (NIWA), illustrates this. Her contribution to the WMO Greenhouse Bulletin revealed that New Zealand’s indigenous forests play a bigger role in absorbing carbon from the atmosphere than previously thought.

Also on the programme, Abinash Mohanty, Council on Energy, Environment and Water, has been mapping climate vulnerability in India and explains why communities should be at the forefront of climate adaptation and mitigation strategies. And particle physicist Claire Malone shares her insights on how we can help women thrive in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields.

Senior executives of the multinational oil industry have been giving evidence to the Oversight Committee of the US Congress. They face claims that they misled the public and government over the role of fossil fuels in causing global warming, and repeatedly misrepresented the science, as far back as 1977. The oil representatives have denied that they or their companies misled anyone.

Also in the programme: in Ethiopia, the war between federal government forces and their allies and the Tigrayan People’s Liberation Front rages in two towns in Amhara region - we hear from a senior TPLF spokesman in Tigray; and, over a year after the blast in the port of Lebanon’s capital killed over two hundred people, the judge leading the investigation faces continuing obstructions.

Finding my Hinduism

Colourful temples, bells , incense and a multitude of deities and festivals - journalist Nalini Sivathasan grew up immersed in her parents’ religion, Hinduism. But as she has grown older, she has found it harder to connect with her faith and speaking to her friends, she finds she is not alone.

Unlike most other religions, Hinduism has no single founder, no single scripture nor commonly agreed set of teachings – which for some, can make it tricky to navigate.

On her journey to discover ‘her Hinduism’, Nalini talks to the Hindu Academy, which provides online classes and resources on the religion.

It’s seen a rise in engagement among young people over the past few years, yet the number of young people attending temples has fallen across the UK. Nalini visits a temple she grew up visiting to find out why and discovers how it’s trying to engage young people in ways other than worship.

For charity Go Dharmic, which was founded on the Hindu principle of dharma, practising seva - or selfless service - is the best way for young Hindus to connect with their faith and the world around them. While for vlogger Parle Patel, social media is the place to connect with young Hindus. But Parle says he is often criticised for proudly showcasing his Hinduism identity online.

Couple Abhinaya and Rahul are planning their Hindu wedding ceremony. For them the ceremony is more of a cultural event, rather than religious. Will understanding the importance and symbolism of the rituals bring them any closer to their faith?

Nalini also speaks to Indian politician Shashi Tharoor. While unsparing in his criticism of certain elements sometimes linked to Hinduism, he describes himself as a proud, believing Hindu. How is he able to navigate the apparent contradictions he sees within his religion?

Nalini tries to make sense of what it means to be a Hindu today, talks to those practising the faith in their own distinct way and decides whether there is a version of Hinduism out there which best suits her.

Kilimanjaro: Africa’s disappearing glaciers

The mountains of East Africa are losing their glaciers. At 5,895 metres, Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain on the continent, but it has lost about 90% of it's glacial ice in the past 100 years and scientists believe the process is accelerating. They say climate change is the cause and that some glaciers could disappear completely within the next few years. Rebecca Kesby has been speaking to Prof Clavery Tungaraza from Tanzania, and Dr Doug Hardy from the US, who was one of the first scientists to research Kilimanjaro. Simon Mtuy has climbed the mountain many times, and his family has farmed on its slopes for centuries. He tells Rebecca that within his own life time he has witnessed massive changes in the mountain and the climate.

Why do military coups still happen?

Defiant protesters have been on the streets of Sudan this week after the country's armed forces launched a military coup. On Monday coup leader Gen Abdel Fattah Burhan dissolved civilian rule, arrested political leaders and declared a state of emergency. It wasn't meant to be like this. After long-time Sudanese ruler Omar al-Bashir was overthrown in 2019, civilian leaders and their military counterparts entered a power-sharing agreement designed to encourage democratic reform. So why has the fragile arrangement broken down and what does history tell us about the broader challenges countries face when trying to move beyond military rule? Is democracy possible without strong institutions? Why do countries like Pakistan continue to flirt with military rule despite having elections? And how have others - like Argentina - managed to break away from military rule altogether?

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s image is famously everywhere, from TV to billboards to petrol stations. But one man, Peter K, says putting his face on Covid-19 vaccine certificates is a step too far, and is taking the matter to court. The BBC's Geeta Pandey in Delhi lays out the arguments.

Pope urges 'radical' action on climate change ahead of COP26

In a message especially recorded for the BBC, Pope Francis urged world leaders meeting at the UN Climate Summit in Glasgow next week, to provide "effective responses" to the environment emergency and offer "concrete hope" to future generations. We discuss the challenges of the UN Summit with Eamon Ryan, Ireland's Minister for the Environment, Climate and Communications and Minister for Transport.

Also on the programme: E-cigarettes could soon be prescribed on the National Health Service in England to help people stop smoking tobacco products, and we hear about “astounding” Roman findings from the archaeologist who led the team that discovered them in south-east England.

Is net zero the right target?

There are just days to go until the much anticipated COP26 climate conference, which is taking place in Glasgow, Scotland. Net zero emissions appears to be the target that many countries have committed to - but is the right objective for all, and which nations need to be more ambitious? Plus - one of the most legendary music back catalogues is up for sale -- David Bowie’s estate is in talks with buyers and has attracted bids of around $200m,

COP26: What do young people want?

As world leaders and activists are getting ready to gather in Scotland for the COP26 Summit, we are bringing our audiences together to link up young people across the world and the UK to hear their messages about the planet. We will host conversations with people sharing their experiences of extreme weather events and discussing ‘net zero’ targets in three cities --Leeds, Stockholm and Johannesburg.

We'll also hear from activists who are attending COP26 and organising protests ahead and during the conference. And we’ll speak to a reporter in Glasgow about how the city prepares to welcome 30,000 people.

Throughout the programme, our Science Editor David Shukman and other experts will be answering audience questions about COP26 and climate change

Could we completely switch to renewable energy?

As the world slowly moves away from using fossil fuels for electricity, one tiny Scottish island has proved it’s possible to rely almost entirely on renewables.

The inner Hebridean isle of Eigg used to get its power from diesel generators. But in 2008 its residents launched the world’s first electricity system powered by nature, and the Crowdscience team wants to know exactly how they did it, and whether such a model could work in other places with no national grid? Marnie discovers that the community is key to the success of this project, meeting the maintenance men who taught themselves to install equipment and solve any problems themselves, and hearing from residents who’ve changed their habits to use less juice. With the mainland more than an hour away by a once-daily ferry, this kind of resourcefulness is vital. Hydroelectric generators harness the power of running water and are complemented by wind turbines and solar panels on peoples roofs, meeting 95% of Eigg’s energy needs. Now others are learning from this unique experiment and we meet the Malawians who were inspired after visiting Eigg. A solar grid in the village of Sitolo has provided power to thousands of people, and the people who designed it are planning others.
