SAT 00:06 The Real Story (w3ct1hts)
Why is China supporting Russia on Nato?

This month President Putin of Russia was the star guest at the opening of the Winter Olympics in Beijing. But his trip to China was not just about showing support for the host country. He and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping issued an unexpectedly long statement pledging friendship with 'no limits' and no 'forbidden areas of co-operation'. Beijing and Moscow have maintained a stable relationship since the 2000s, a far cry from the bitter days of the Sino-Soviet split during the Cold War.

China has increased its gas imports from Russia and Russia has in turn allowed more Belt and Road investments in its territory. The two conduct joint military exercises, co-operate in exploring Arctic sea routes, and support each other on the world stage. Now, breaking with its previous ambiguity, China has expressed support for Russia's concerns over the potential future expansion of Nato, giving Moscow a significant boost in its border standoff with Ukraine. Russia meanwhile backs China's claims over Taiwan. Even though no formal alliance has been announced, experts see the new Sino-Russia pact as a clear challenge to the United States.

So how important is the agreement between Russia and China and what are the countries' longer term goals? Does Russia risk being dominated by China, which is soon to become the biggest economy in the world? And how will the evolving relationship between the two powers impact the future of the democracy-based world order envisioned by President Biden? Ritula Shah is joined by a panel of experts.

Canadian police try to end trucker protest

To get the latest on the Canada truck protest situation, we hear from Kristy Kirkup in Ottawa - she's the national reporter for the Globe and Mail newspaper; and we also hear from Professor Arthur Wheaton the director of labor studies at Cornell's School of Industrial and Labor relations. The World Health Organization has announced that six African countries will be given the revolutionary mRNA technology to set up their own vaccine production centres - helping the continent acquire self-reliance against the Covid pandemic. But there are still a lot of questions to answer; we hear from Anna Marriott, Health Policy Manager at Oxfam, part of the People's Vaccine Alliance. And many of us are now returning back to the office and that leads to some big questions. Top of the list is what should we wear... we get some answers from Marketplace's Kai Rysdall who talks to Elizabeth Spaulding, the CEO of Stitch Fix.

Indian women in sports: The making of a champion

More and more women are taking up professional sports across the world, becoming more visible, assertive and active in the sporting arena. But these hard-won victories are not the norm, and they invariably have amazing back stories of struggles off the field. Women starting out in any sport often have an uphill battle to wage due to limited opportunities, support and money.

In India, family obligations and a patriarchal mindset are often the biggest roadblocks. But as the BBC announces this year’s awards to honour India’s finest sportswomen, we look at their personal journeys to understand the sweat, grit and struggle that goes into every win. Is there a better way to formulate policies to encourage more women and para athletes to take up sport?

In this edition of WorklifeIndia, we look at India’s ace women athletes and what goes into the making of a champion. With contributions from Dr Deepa Malik, president, Paralympic Committee of India; Manu Bhaker, Olympian shooter; Deepthi Bopaiah, CEO, GoSports Foundation.

Overcoming betrayal

When someone we trust betrays us, the feelings can be corrosive and long-lasting. Nini, from Myanmar, found out a year ago that her husband of 20 years had been cheating on her for a decade and had a child with another woman. They are now divorced. He has moved on with his life, but Nini finds it difficult to let go of a deep resentment. She speaks to writer and teacher Gary Zukav, who suggests that feeling her emotional pain in terms of physical sensations could help her let these feelings go.

How to find the perfect wedding dress

Of the many different items of clothing a woman will wear throughout her life, there is perhaps none loaded with so much significance as her wedding dress, and finding the perfect one can be an enormous source of stress. Kim Chakanetsa meets two wedding designers who help women dial down that pressure by helping bring their bridal visions to life.

Yasmine Yeya is the founder of Masion Yeya, a couture atelier in Dubai. She was raised in Egypt by a family of French descent and her heritage is reflected in her elegant and unique style, which is a blend of European and Middle Eastern influences.

Nneka Alexander is the founder of Brides by Nona. What started out as a dress making favour for her twin sister has turned into a sought-after bridal business with its signature gowns of intricate detail and bead work. She’s originally from Nigeria and she’s based in Atlanta, in the United States.

Journalists in Mexico

Outside a war zone, Mexico is one of the most dangerous countries to be a journalist. In 2021, seven journalists were murdered. But in the first few weeks of this year alone, the killing of five journalists has prompted an outcry and concern.

On today’s edition, we have been hearing what it's like when your job is to try and tell stories in a country where four people are killed every hour and where violent crimes fill your newsfeeds. For Adrián López Ortiz, the CEO and editor of Noroeste newspaper in the state of Sinaloa in Northwestern Mexico, it’s a long standing problem since he still suffers from injuries during an attack in 2014.

“I was coming back from a business trip and when I was going from the airport to my home I was intercepted by two cars,” said Ortiz. “From one of them came two guys and one of them shot me in both legs.”

Ines Garcia, co-founder of a digital news service called Punto Norte, is based in Tijuana, an area where two of the five journalists were killed this year. She describes the fear and personal checks she makes each time she leaves her house.

Host Karnie Sharp also hears a conversation with three men and women who are either journalism students or freshly graduated. They share hopes and fears for the profession - and why they believe it is vitally important to report on Mexico’s organised crime, murders and drug cartels.

We speak to a female athlete, who fled Afghanistan after the Taliban retook control of her country. She managed to leave on a flight with the help of paperwork, which she thought would lead to her starting a new life in Canada. That hasn’t proved to be the case and she’s currently living with other evacuees in eastern Europe. She tells us she believes she would have been killed if found by the Taliban and about her fear for her family still living in Afghanistan.

Henry Cabelus explains what the sport of extreme pogo involves ahead of him performing at the NBA All-Star weekend. Cabelus, who holds a number of world records – including the most consecutive back-flips in a row – tells us he hopes his sport will be included in the X Games in the future.

Olivia and Chandler McDaniel discuss their new found fame after they helped the Philippines reach next year’s Fifa Women’s World Cup.

The River Man

Why was an Irishman executed by other Irish men a century ago? The Anglo-Irish Treaty, signed 100 years ago, brought an end to the Irish War of Independence and ending centuries of British colonial control. Ireland became the first nation to break away from the British Empire.

During the war members of the IRA were pitted against the Royal Irish Constabulary, the British Army and the notorious Black and Tans and Auxiliaries. It's a story of divided loyalties and the unresolved traumas of war, with resonance today as Britain and Ireland struggle to address the legacy of the more recent violence of the Troubles in Northern Ireland.

In an investigation into the fate of one man, James Kane, the River Man, executed by the IRA a century ago, Fergal Keane explores some of these issues. Why did they kill him and what were the consequences for his family and his executioners?

An emotional return to the Chagos Islands

When a boat carrying a group of Chagos Islanders landed on their homeland this week, it represented return after half a century of exile. The Islands were once part of British-run Mauritius, and in 1972, Britain removed the inhabitants, so it could hand one of the islands over to the United States, to build a military base. The move has been condemned by the International Court of Justice, and by the United Nations, but the UK has so far refused to allow the Islanders back. This week, they took matters into their own hands, as part of a Mauritian contingent they sailed back to the place they once called home. Andrew Harding was on board.

Lebanon hosts more than a million Syrian refugees, mostly living in very basic accommodation. Now the country has been hit by some extremely cold weather, while in the midst of an economic crisis. That has left refugees exposed to the elements, with families unable to cook, children falling ill, and little sign of help on its way. Leila Molana-Allen found many in despair.

China has been generous to Sri Lanka lately, paying for roads, other transport infrastructure, and retail developments. Some of these have been outright gifts, some were funded by loans, but others were more of a swap, provided in return for access to land. One of the biggest developments is in the harbour area of Sri Lanka's capital, Colombo, where a huge retail, residential, and business area is under way. Anbarasan Ethirajan was given a tour, and found himself asking whether it was what the people of Sri Lanka really needed.

Swedish born Matilda Welin ponders the many ways in which people around the world pronounce her name. Could a different pronunciation bring out a different side of her personality?

Why The Military Coup is Back in Africa

Global Questions: Why The Military Coup is Back in Africa

Successive coups in Africa are causing concern that military takeovers are on the rise across the continent, prompting fears they will overturn the democratic gains Africa has made in recent decades. 2021 was a tumultuous year in Africa seeing coups in Chad, Guinea, Mali and Sudan. This year has already seen two - a takeover by the army in Burkina Faso and a failed coup attempt in Guinea Bissau. And thousands have been killed in wars like Ethiopia’s civil war in the Horn of Africa. Many of the current conflicts are driven by prospects of political power or financial gain, but while insecurity persists, do some African countries believe the army can bring greater stability, reflecting the interests of the international community?

Landscapes

On this week’s The Cultural Frontline Nawal Al-Mughafi explores how artists are responding to the landscape around them.

Saudi artist Dana Awartani tells us about her latest piece, Where the Dwellers Lay, part of Desert X AlUla, which has been inspired by the desert landscape of the AlUla region of north west Saudi Arabia. She also discusses the role of female artists on the flourishing art scene in country.

How we look at the landscape around us depends very much on our own relationship with it, whether it’s where generations of our family have taken root, or a place we intend to exploit. And that’s something explored by Zimbabwean author Blessing Musariri in her first adult novel, Only This Once Are We Immaculate. We invited fellow Zimbabwean author Ignatius Mabasa to talk to Blessing about her book. Although Blessing and Ignatius live in the capital Harare, but are both fascinated with the natural world beyond the cities.

Highlighting light pollution and preserving natural darkness is an important subject for conceptual artist Rafael Y. Herman. For his upcoming exhibition called ‘ESSE’ in Palermo, he’s been making his way around the Mediterranean island of Sicily and its surrounding archipelagos, carrying only essential supplies and a camera to capture the most stunning and isolated parts of the Italian region, showcasing its natural beauty without lights, flashes or post-production.

And we hear from the award-winning artist Miko Veldkamp. He was born in Suriname to parents of Dutch and Indonesian heritage and in his exhibition Ghost Stories, he explores his mixed race identity by putting varying versions of himself into paintings of the landscapes of his life, which features symbols from the different geographies in which he’s lived.

UK pop artist Will Joseph Cook taught himself music production and is a huge presence on Tiktok, where he posts videos on everything from how he crafts his music to songs he’s written about his favourite films.

Bone repair from Covid-19 vaccine technology

Messenger RNA-based vaccines have been used successfully to kick start the antibody production needed to fight Covid-19. Now the technology has been successfully used to encourage the growth of new bones to heal severe fractures. The technique seems to work far better than the current alternatives says Maastricht University’s Elizabeth Rosado Balmayor.

Ivory smuggling continues to be a lucrative business for international criminal gangs, however, DNA techniques to trace where ivory seized by law enforcement authorities originates are now so accurate that individual animals can be pinpointed to within a few hundred miles. This says Samuel Wasser at the University of Washington, can be used as evidence against those ivory trafficking gangs.

How good are you at finding your way from A to B? Humans throughout history have used all sorts of tools to get us to our destination – from a trusty map and compass to the instant directions on a smartphone sat nav. But CrowdScience listener Pam from Florida wants to know what happens when we leave the surface of the Earth – and try to navigate our way around space. Is there a North and South we can use to orientate ourselves? Which way is left if your nearest landmark is a million light-years away? And if you can’t tell which way is up, how do spacecraft know where they’re going? Presenter Anand Jagatia speaks to experts in an attempt to find his way through the tricky problem of intergalactic space navigation.

Pig organs for transplant patients

People die waiting for replacement hearts, lungs and kidneys. Could genetically modified pigs be the solution to a worldwide shortage of organ donors?

We meet the teams that have had impressive recent successes transplanting pig organs into people. We’ll explore the huge leaps of genetic engineering that are making 'xenotransplantation' possible and ask if it’s even ethical to try.

In the studio with Marnie Chesterton, Dr Graham Easton guides us through the science of getting pig organs to work in human bodies.

We also hear from transplant surgeon Dr Devagourou Velayoudam and Professor Nadey Hakim, on how these breakthroughs might benefit India and Nigeria, and other countries which don’t have the same medical and research resources of the US.

Dark patterns

Trying to cancel some online accounts can be a maze of searches and false hopes, multiple clicks through a puzzle of seemingly unrelated destinations.

This is what has become known as a 'dark pattern'; complex web design that makes it hard for you to do something the website does not want you to do, and employs behavioural psychology to make you do things it does want you to do. It is just one of the techniques used to make us click, buy or subscribe.

Journalist and broadcaster Darryl Morris digs into the methods being used to grip your attention, and examines the persuasive power that is being harnessed. What impact is it having on your free will, and is there anything that can be done to resist it?

He hears from user experience expert Harry Brignall, who first blew the whistle on these practices, and Stockholm-based web designer Kat Zou, who exposes the intense pressure design teams are under to deliver company growth – and how some designers feel as trapped as the customers.

Dark patterns play a key role in getting users to share more data than they may otherwise choose to. Darryl meets Professor David Carrol, who famously took legal action against Cambridge Analytica. He describes the impact losing your data can have on your life, from your job, to where you live and how you are treated.

Finn Mystrad, who took one of the world’s biggest companies to task in his role on the Norwegian Consumer Council, explains how hard it is for governments to legislate against dark pattern web design.

And Darryl meets New Yorker Carla Sosenko, who tells him how online retail and dark patterns fed a shopping addiction that chipped away at her life.

Muslim and lesbian

From an early age, Fatima Daas knew that she was different. Raised in a strict Algerian Muslim family in the poor suburbs of Paris, she struggled to reconcile the feelings she was developing with her devotion to her faith. Her upbringing dictated that she would have to choose between Islam and her sexuality. At high school, she tried and failed to start teenage romances with boys. Confused and isolated, one day she even took out her frustrations on a fellow student whom she resented for being able to be openly gay.

Mike Wooldridge travels to the suburbs of Paris to meet Fatima and some of those who accompanied her on her difficult journey. He hears about the pressures she came under, and her fears of disappointing both her family and her community.

As she grew up, Fatima says, she coped “by speaking to God…as if He was a counsellor,” sharing with Him her innermost secrets. And for many years, she says, she was convinced she was the only lesbian who was also a Muslim.

Now in her mid-20s, Fatima tells Mike how she eventually reconciled her inner conflicts and made her choice. She has recently published a frank semi-autobiographical novel about her experiences, which has caused a stir in France. “I’m not going to reform a religion that’s existed for such a long time,” Fatima says, adding: “But I have never doubted God.”

Joseph Heller's Catch-22: A novel of twisted logic and absurd bureaucracy

"That’s some Catch, that Catch 22". It’s a novel that gave rise to a new term in the English language and gave voice to American soldiers serving in Vietnam in the 1960s. Since its publication in 1961, Catch-22, Joseph Heller’s best-selling novel, has not only come to symbolise the cynical self-serving aspect of war run as a business, but also the way an ordinary person can be trapped and controlled by bureaucracy and social rules, in whatever area of life. It’s a novel that’s sold tens of millions of copies, and it continues to engage new readers. So, what is the secret of its success? Bridget Kendall is joined by the American novelist and friend of Joseph Heller, Christopher Buckley; Dr Beci Carver, lecturer in 20th century literature at Exeter University, whose forthcoming book is Modernism’s Whims; and Tracy Daugherty, author of Just One Catch: A Biography of Joseph Heller, and Emeritus Professor at Oregon State University in the US. With the contribution of Patricia Chapman Meder, the author of The True Story of Catch-22, whose father was the inspiration for Colonel Cathcart, Heller’s commander who kept increasing the number of flight missions.

The Court Battle at the Centre of Europe

In Business Weekly, we look at the implications of the European Court of Justice clearing the way for the European Union to cut billions of euros in funding to Poland and Hungary. Judges dismissed a challenge by the two nations, with the court ruling that the EU can suspend funding to member states that violate the bloc’s democratic values. Sophie Pornschlegel at the Brussels-based European Policy Centre explains how the cut in funding will hit both countries’ economies. Also, we hear why India has banned more than fifty Chinese mobile apps, claiming they pose a threat to national security. Amit Bhandari, a senior fellow for energy investment and connectivity at Gateway House, tells us about the power dynamics between the Asian giants. After years of delays, the green light for what will be the largest heated oil pipeline in the world has been given. Running from Uganda to the cost of Tanzania, the pipeline is being heralded as an economic boon for both countries, but has been fiercely opposed by activists who question its environmental impact. The BBC’s Joshua Thorpe takes a closer look at whether the region will truly benefit. Plus, a new study has revealed that a quarter of the world's rivers contain potentially toxic levels of pharmaceutical drugs. We hear more on the findings with Dr John Wilkinson from the University of York who co-led the project. And did you know that one in seven of us – that’s one billion people - lives with a disability? However, they can be twice as likely to be unemployed than non-disabled people.

Australia reopens to tourists

Australia has reopened its borders to foreign tourists for the first time in almost two years, with the country’s beleaguered travel sector hoping for a revival. Margy Osmond from Australia’s Tourism & Transport Forum says there’s excitement as the first travellers arrive in the country, while Shane Lowry from the Langham hotel in Sydney says job cuts during the pandemic have left some businesses with staff shortages. Journalists investigating banking giant Credit Suisse have found that its accounts held assets worth billions of dollars apparently on behalf of clients with links to crime – accusations the bank has rejected. The BBC’s Ben King tells us more about the story. Plus, as South Africa’s government announces that it will treat internet access as a basic utility and provide households with a free monthly data allowance, William Bird from the NGO Media Monitoring Africa tells us it’s a step in the right direction. And as Ethiopia inaugurates the Grand Renaissance Dam – despite protestations from neighbours Egypt and Sudan, we hear the thoughts of former US ambassador to Addis Ababa, Tibor Nagy, who hopes an accommodation can be reached between the quarrelling parties.

UCL oceanographer Helen Czerski explores life in the ocean depths with a panel of deep sea biologists. They take us to deep ocean coral gardens on sea mounts, to extraordinary hydrothermal vent ecosystems teeming with weird lifeforms fed by chemosynthetic microbes, to the remarkable biodiversity in the muds of the vast abyssal plains.

Helen's guests are Adrian Glover of the Natural History Museum in London, Kerry Howell of Plymouth University and Alex Rogers, scientific director of REV Ocean.

They discuss the dramatic revelations made by deep ocean explorers in just the last forty years, and the profound connections that the deep sea floor has with life at the Earth's surface. They also consider the threats to the ecosystems down there from seabed mining and climate change.

What will happen if the world's glaciers melt?

We hear a lot about how melting glaciers are contributing to sea-level rise but not so much about the impact inland. In places like Tajikistan, glaciers feed rivers and are a significant water source.

As they melt climatologists expect water flows to increase, contributing to a rise in mudslides and floods. But in the long term, the melting ice will lead to water shortages.

We look at mountain communities living near glaciers and try to understand what impact this is having now and what might happen in the future.

What can we do to prepare for the consequences of glacier melt?

Dementia: Women breaking the silence

How can we help people with dementia? Kim Chakanetsa talks to two women from Singapore and the UK about how they’ve adapted to living with the condition and why they now want to help others understand dementia better.

Wendy Mitchell was diagnosed with young onset dementia at the age of 58. She wrote a bestselling memoir, Somebody I Used to Know about the slow realisation that she was changing, and the adaptations she needed to make to her life to cope. She's a vocal advocate for people with Alzheimer's and other dementia and promotes better understanding and care. Surprised by the lack of information available to her and her family, she's written a second book, What I Wish People Knew About Dementia.

Emily Ong is from East Malaysia but now lives in Singapore. She first noticed something was wrong when she forgot how to make French toast, but it took her years to get a proper diagnosis for young onset dementia. Now 54 years old, she advocates for greater understanding of the disease and belongs to the Voices for Hope programme, helping people who are newly diagnosed or already have dementia. She says it's rare for Asians to speak about dementia and it's important to be open and spread understanding.

Ingrid Betancourt: Can Colombia defeat corruption?

Colombians will elect a new President this year, and amid a crowded field, one candidate has reason to view the coming campaign with mixed emotion. Ingrid Betancourt was running for president 20 years ago when she was captured by Farc guerrillas and held captive in the jungle for more than six years. Colombia’s guerrilla war is over, and now she’s running again, promising a war on corruption. She says she’ll finish what she started - is that possible?

Fighting homelessness in Sacramento

California's state capital suffers from a serious shortage of housing, like much of the Golden State. Small informal encampments along riverbanks or the side of the road are a common sight.

We hear from Laura Nussbaum, a woman living in one of these camps in Sacramento. She's trying to get back into permanent housing but doesn't think she'll get any help from the city. Meanwhile, the mayor of Sacramento thinks his city should pass a law which gives everyone the legal right to housing. Darrell Steinberg tells presenter Sarah Hawkins how it would work, and why a law is needed to cut through red tape.

But not everyone is convinced; Faye Wilson Kennedy of the Sacramento Poor People's Campaign worries that the law could force people to choose from the city's very limited list of housing options without necessarily building new options. And local reporter Chris Nichols gives us the perspective of local builders, NIMBY groups, and even some YIMBY groups who positively want new developments to take shape.

The first sex worker strike

In 1975 hundreds of French sex workers took refuge in churches across France to protest against police harassment, in their first ever collective action. The strike began at Saint Nizier church in Lyon but spread to other cities, including Paris, where it was reported that all sex workers were on strike. In Lyon police had begun systematically issuing fines in a crackdown on the women who found customers on the streets. Those who couldn't pay were often imprisoned for days at a time and separated from their children. Claire Bowes has been speaking to Pere Christian Delorme who helped the women and stayed with them at Saint Nizier church till police forced the women to leave after ten days protest.

How do you navigate in space?

How good are you at finding your way from A to B? Humans throughout history have used all sorts of tools to get us to our destination – from a trusty map and compass to the instant directions on a smartphone. But CrowdScience listener Pam from Florida wants to know what happens when we leave the surface of the Earth and try to navigate our way around space. Is there a North and South we can use to orientate ourselves? Which way is left if your nearest landmark is a million light years away? And if you can’t tell which way is up, how do spacecraft know where they’re going?

Presenter Anand Jagatia speaks to experts in an attempt to find his way through the tricky problem of intergalactic space navigation.

My symphony to a soccer ‘bad-boy’

Osmo Tapio Everton Räihälä is a Finnish composer who is crazy about Everton football club. Growing up almost two thousand miles away wouldn’t stop him from living and breathing everything Everton, so much so that as a young composer he took drastic measures to keep his fledgling music career on track.

One such inspiration came in the towering figure of the club’s Scottish centre forward, Duncan Ferguson who, though blessed with talent, was often in trouble both on and off the pitch. Their lives and fortunes would be end up being entwined but on the night Osmo was debuting his most famous work about Ferguson, the football gods weren’t following the score.

We hear more stories of people going to great lengths to pursue their loves: first an Iraqi engineer whose obsession with all things Korean burns as brightly as it did when she first discovered their TV dramas as a teenager, and we’re in the undergrowth with Mexican bug-expert, Dr Isaí Madriz, whose joy of insects will change the way you look at them forever.

Ukraine Crisis: Russia says more than 60,000 civilians have left rebel held areas of the Donbas

Ukraine says evacuations part of an orchestrated pretext for a possible Russian invasion. Earlier President Biden said he'd agreed "in principle" to meeting President Putin.

Also on the programme: hearings resume at the ICJ at The Hague in the case of The Gambia versus Myanmar. The African country initially filed its case in 2019, after approximately 700,000 Muslim Rohingya people were forced to flee Myanmar in a military campaign, which the UN has designated an act of genocide. And 50 years ago today President Nixon first met Chairman Mao. Does that meeting still look like the diplomatic triumph people claimed at the time?

We find out the latest from our correspondent, and hear from people in eastern Ukraine where exchanges of fire are continuing between Russian-backed separatists and Ukrainian forces.

Cursed as a worthless scavenger and cast as villainous cowardly sidekicks in Disney’s The Lion King, the spotted hyena is one of the world’s most misunderstood of all predators. It may scavenge at night on a giant rubbish tip on the outskirts of Mekelle in Ethiopia, but it earns it’s top predator status when it takes down its prey in Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve. Adam Hart and guests polish up the spotted hyena’s tarnished reputation.

In the 1990s, doctors in Berlin began a cutting-edge treatment programme that led to a patient being cured of HIV/AIDS. The so-called "Berlin patient" was Timothy Ray Brown: he was suffering from leukemia as well as HIV/AIDS, and was given a bone marrow transplant from a donor with a rare genetic mutation which killed off the HIV virus. We find more about Timothy Ray Brown's story and the latest research on an HIV cure.

Also, in a special edition on LGBT history, how Bollywood lesbian drama "Fire" raised awareness of LGBT issues in India; the trans film star who made headlines in Yugoslavia during a time of war; and the first couple in the world to celebrate a same-sex civil union.

Jobfished

It is 2020. Covid Britain is in lockdown and the world is working from home. In the depths of the deadly pandemic and when people were at their lowest - someone spots an opportunity. This is the story of how people from all over the world were hired to work for a seemingly glamorous and successful design agency…but the whole thing was fake.

The company was built on fakery and its office was not real. But its own staff had no idea. For months they slogged as unwitting victims of an elaborate online con, tricked into believing they had good jobs at a successful company. They had been jobfished.

If the whole thing was a game it wasn’t a funny one. Workers got into debt waiting for paychecks that never arrived. They lied to thousands of people trying to get new business for the company. Others were promised life-changing visas to the UK. But all of it was a lie, and it was only uncovered after curious staff did some digging. Who was behind the con? And what on earth were they trying to achieve?

Investigative journalist Catrin Nye and her team expose a tangled web of lies, confronting the boss to get to the truth of what really happened.

Violent partners: The ‘window’ strategy

Police in Iceland treat domestic violence differently.

Leaving an abusive relationship is hard, and many victims stay with physically or mentally hurtful partners, even after police get involved.

In Iceland, they focus their efforts on the first 24 hours after a domestic attack is reported.

This is the “window” in which survivors are most likely to give unfiltered evidence against their abusers and accept help leaving them.

Specialist police, social workers and child protection officers are swiftly sent into violent homes, and suspected offenders can be immediately removed. It’s a more hands-on approach than in most places, based on the view that domestic abuse is a public rather than a private problem.

Maddy Savage investigates how much the initiative has impacted prosecution rates and the wellbeing of families affected by this type of violence.

Inventing a surgery to cure myself

When Doug Lindsay was at college he got ill very suddenly. It was the same mystery illness his mother and aunt had suffered from for most of their lives. Doctors were baffled. Doug had to drop out of college and was bedridden for years. He decided to take matters into his own hands and work out what was wrong with him. In search of a cure, Doug eventually persuaded doctors to perform a surgery that had never been done on humans before. He spoke to Outlook’s Jo Fidgen, in an interview first broadcast in December 2019.

West imposes sanctions on Russia in conflict with Ukraine

The West has imposed sanctions on Russia after President Vladimir Putin recognised the independence of two breakaway republics in eastern Ukraine and ordered troops into the two rebel-held regions. In response, the British Prime Minister has imposed sanctions and Germany has suspended the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline.

We take you through the key developments, with the latest from Kyiv and Moscow; reactions from the West; and we ask - how far will Russia go?

West unveils new Russia sanctions

The West is putting sanctions on Russia after President Putin ordered troops into Ukraine. The moves include the UK blocking several Russian banks, and Germany suspending approval of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline. We hear about the legal and trade implications from lawyer Shaistah Akhtar of Mishcon de Reya. Also in the programme, we find out why the price of used cars and trucks in the US has risen more than 40% over the past year. As coffee giant Starbucks reduces its relationship with the certification organisation Fairtrade, we get reaction from Anna Barker, head of responsible business at the Fairtrade Foundation. Plus, the boss of one of Britain's biggest supermarket chains is to take a four month sabbatical to help her children through some school exams. Our regular workplace commentator Peter Morgan considers whether career breaks and sabbaticals are a trend that are likely to catch on.

Today's edition is presented by Rob Young, and produced by Benjie Guy and Ivana Davidovic.

The bionic eye that’s obsolete

Imagine receiving the latest medical implant that can partially restore your vision, now imagine the technology behind your implant no longer being produced or supported. That’s what happened to about 350 patients around the world, as the medical start-up company behind a particular implant called Second Sight medical products has hit financial difficulties. Eliza Strickland and Mark Harris from IEEE Spectrum first reported on the story and tell us what happened.

iPhone 13 Pro Max – the latest in ophthalmic medicine?
As recently as February 2021, medical journal "The Lancet" reported that "Almost everyone will experience impaired vision or an eye condition during their lifetime and require eye care services". Chances are then, that at some point, you'll be visiting an eye doctor. But what sort of equipment would you expect them to use to examine your eyes? Well, you might be surprised, as our reporter Fern Lulham found out. This is the final in Fern’s series on blind tech.

What might happen with our COVID data?
Since the pandemic started, an unprecedented amount of data about our health and our whereabouts has been collected by governments and private companies – but what will happen to this data and do we have any control over it?

West unveils new Russia sanctions

Western countries have placed further sanctions on Russia, after President Putin ordered troops into two breakaway regions of eastern Ukraine, after recognising their independence from Kyiv. The retaliatory moves include the UK blocking several Russian banks, and Germany suspending approval of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline. We hear what some of the key diplomatic players involved have been saying, and speak to Yaroslav Trofimov, Chief Foreign Affairs Correspondent at The Wall Street Journal down the line from the Ukrainian capital. Plus, where can European countries source natural gas if getting it from Russia is no longer an option? We hear from Bloomberg correspondent Simone Foxman, who has been at a meeting of the world's leading gas exporters in Qatar's capital Doha. Joe Saluzzi from Themis Trading in New Jersey tells us how the markets have reacted to rising tensions over Ukraine, while Shaistah Akhtar from British law firm Mishcon de Reya tells us how sanctions such as those imposed by the UK government on Tuesday will be felt in Russia. And after India stops short of criticising Moscow over Monday's escalation, we speak to SOAS international relations professor Avinash Paliwal about the commercial and military considerations that New Delhi is weighing as it formulates its response to the crisis.

Western powers unveil new Russia sanctions

Western countries have placed further sanctions on Russia after President Putin ordered troops into two breakaway regions of eastern Ukraine. We hear directly from some of the main diplomatic voices on both sides of the crisis, and get an update from the Wall Street Journal’s Chief Foreign Affairs Correspondent Yaroslav Trofimov, who is in Kyiv. Professor Avinash Paliwal of the School of Oriental and African Studies in London tells us why India is walking a tightrope when it comes to responding to the situation in Ukraine, given the country’s close military and commercial ties with Russia. Bloomberg correspondent Simone Foxman has been at the summit of the world’s leading natural gas producers in Qatar’s capital Doha, and tells us other suppliers will be unable to meet the shortfall caused by the disruption of Russian gas exports to Europe. Shaistah Akhtar, an expert on sanctions law at London-based law firm Mischon de Reya, tells us how the impact of the measures taken against Moscow by countries such as the UK will be felt in Russia. The BBC’s Michelle Fleury has a special report on rapidly increasing used car prices, and how potential buyers in the US have been affected. Throughout the programme we’re joined live by Jeanette Rodrigues, Managing Editor for South Asia at Bloomberg, and political reporter Erin Delmore in New York.

It’s a Bird’s World

It’s a birds’ world: Viruses and infection

Just like us, birds can become infected with viruses – and some of these can be transferred to us. As we’ve seen with the coronavirus pandemic, there are real challenges when it comes to controlling the spread of viral infections. Any attempt to try and stay one step ahead of a virus requires really good monitoring, especially as many birds travel long distances and migrate. Birds are invaluable as sentinels in our attempt to map and control the spread of infection. In this episode we look at how water birds, poultry, jays and sage grouse have alerted us to the spread of diseases which affect them and us in the environment.

WED 04:32 The Coming Storm (w3ct3kl1)
QAnon: The plot to break reality. The Coming Storm is a journey into the dark undergrowth of modern America. From conspiracy-soaked barrooms in 1990s Arkansas, via spies in hotel rooms in the shadow of the Kremlin, to anarchic chatrooms on the early internet, this is a search for the origins of the story that drove the Capitol Insurrection in Washington DC in January 2021, a search for the answer to one big question: did this just happen, or is somebody trying to break reality? For reporter and presenter Gabriel Gatehouse, it starts with a chance encounter. On the night of Halloween 2020, Gabriel signs up for a witch-themed drawing class. In the class he learns about a book, a dark fantasy written in the 15th Century about witches and a conspiracy with the devil. Thanks to the invention of the printing press, the book went viral, and sparked an orgy of misogynistic violence amid the social upheaval of the transition to the modern world. A week after the drawing class, Gabriel travels to America to cover the 2020 presidential election. There he meets a man draped in furs with horns on his head and a sign saying: ‘Q sent me’. The man speaks of a coming storm, a battle against an evil cabal of satanic paedophiles, led by Hillary Clinton, who are conspiring to steal democracy. He seems like an oddball on the fringes. But two months later, on January 6 2021, as Gabriel watches the crowds storm the Capitol in Washington DC attempting to overturn the result of the election, there he is again: same furs, same horns, same story. Hundreds are there with him, thousands more outside, and millions believe his conspiracy narrative. 500 years after the witch craze began, America is in the grip of a new dark fantasy, a story so implausible and yet so compelling it threatens the very foundations of American democracy. How has that happened? And where will it lead?

How will sanctions impact Russia?

A series of governments on both sides of the Atlantic have announced punitive measures in response to Russia ordering troops into rebel-held regions of eastern Ukraine. But how much of an impact will these sanctions actually have on Russia?

In addition to restrictions on banks and access to capital markets, a number of individuals have had assets frozen. We speak to veteran anti-corruption campaigner Bill Browder, who has written a book "Freezing Order" about Russian money-laundering. Also Maria Shagina, a visiting senior fellow at the Finnish Institute of International Affairs, who isn't convinced that the sanctions targeting individuals will work, but says financial institutions may be vulnerable.

Vladimir Putin's move has not triggered the full range of sanctions Western nations have prepared though. We hear from Hal Hodgson, technology reporter for The Economist, who says freezing out of the trade in western technology has had a devastating effect against the Chinese technology firm Huawei and could be deployed if tensions escalate.

Plus we get the latest market reaction to the international response from Justin Urquhart Stewart of Regionally Investment.

The Navajo Code Talkers in World War 2

In World War 2, US Marines fighting in the Pacific needed to be able to communicate securely on the battlefield. Early in the war, the Japanese had been able to decode some of their encrypted messages. So the Marines turned to members of the Navajo tribe. An unbreakable code based on the Navajo language was quickly developed. And the Navajo Code Talkers went on to participate in all the major Marine operations in the Pacific, helping the Allies to victory.

Rob Walker has been listening back to the story of one of the Code Talkers, Samuel Tso, and also speaking to Laura Tohe who is the daughter of a Code Talker and who has written a book about them, ‘Code Talker Stories’.

The interview with Samuel Tso was reproduced with the kind permission of George Colburn. Details of his documentary about the Code Talkers can be found here: https://www.thenavajocodetalkers.com/

The full interview with Samuel Tso is available on C-SPAN, along with interviews with other Code Talkers: https://www.c-span.org/video/?459728-1/navajo-code-talker-samuel-tso-oral-history-interview

The blind skateboarder going for gold

When Justin Bishop was eight years old, he was diagnosed with a condition called retinitis pigmentosa, and was told that one day he would go blind. But two years later he fell in love with skateboarding, and from then on he and his board were inseparable. As his sight began to deteriorate in his late teens, Justin felt he was in a race against time to fit in as much skating as possible, and when he lost his sight at the age of 25 he feared he would never step on a board again. But thanks to the encouragement of his friend, and a cane with a ball on the end of it, Justin is not only winning medals but campaigning for adaptive skateboarding to be included in the Paralympics. A documentary has been made about his story called One Day You'll Go Blind. This interview includes Justin's own recordings of him skateboarding.

Mark Spencer, Adam Jeanes and Ian Lucas are members of an order of gay male 'nuns' called The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. First founded in the 1970s in San Francisco, orders of the Sisters soon spread all around the world, and Mark, Adam and Ian are members of the London order. Over the years they have cared spiritually for the gay community, and campaigned for gay rights - while having a lot of fun. In the 1980s and 90s when HIV/Aids started to wreak its devastation, and in the face of terrible losses in their community, the Sisters decided they needed a saint of their own, and chose the British film-maker, Derek Jarman. Thirty years on, they tell Laura Thomas their story.

The Sisters' interview featured extracts from the following films:
Saintmaking, directed by Marco Alessi; 21st Century Nuns, directed by Tom Stephan; Robert Wise's The Sound of Music and Ken Russell's The Devils.

Ukraine's economic challenges

Amid the threat of a Russian invasion, Ukraine's economy faces a number of challenges. Jock Mendoza-Wilson is deputy chair of the British Ukrainian Chamber of Commerce, and discusses the current mood among businesses in the country. Meanwhile, the West continues to ratchet up sanctions on Russia. The financier Bill Browder, who did business in Russia for many years, but has become an anti-corruption campaigner after his lawyer Sergei Magnitsky died in a Russian jail after being beaten and tortured, offers his assessment of whether the sanctions go far enough to have much impact on the situation. Also in the programme, the International Energy Agency warns that worldwide emissions of the global warming gas methane may be around 70% higher than countries actually report. We find out about the economic arguments in favour of plugging methane leaks from Christophe McGlade of the IEA's Energy Supply Unit. Plus, South Africa's finance minister Enoch Godongwana has just made his maiden Budget speech, including a tax cut for companies and a policy of wage restraint for civil servants. Siobhan Redford is an economist at RMB bank, and fills us in on the details.

Why measles is sweeping through Afghanistan

This week on Health Check, polio makes an unwelcome return to the African continent and measles cases are soaring among children in Afghanistan. We hear from WHO spokesperson Dr Margaret Harris and Médecins Sans Frontières’ Sarah Vuylsteke and Maxime Pirard who are based at Herat Regional Hospital in western Afghanistan.

We also hear how the pandemic has impacted children worldwide, from disruption to routine vaccination services to studies suggesting high mortality rates among children with Covid-19 in sub-Saharan Africa.

Now Covid-19 has exposed gaps in health care systems and inequalities in societies around the world. We discuss how the pandemic has galvanised calls for healthcare independence for African countries, and Dr Yen Lam Minh and Dr Louise Thwaites tell us about the Oxford University Clinical Research Unit programme which will develop high-quality intensive care in Vietnam.

Our guest is public health expert Dr Tabitha Mwangi who managed the Cambridge Africa programme at Cambridge University.

Ukraine declares state of emergency

Ukraine's foreign minister has made a desperate appeal for help at the UN General Assembly, saying failure to halt Russian aggression would mark the end of the current world order. A young Ukrainian woman living in Russia tells us what she makes of Kyiv ordering all Ukrainians to leave for their safety. And a senior humanitarian official explains what war could mean for those who live in Ukraine.

State of emergency declared in Ukraine

Amid the threat of a Russian invasion, Ukraine's economy faces a number of challenges. Jock Mendoza-Wilson is deputy chair of the British Ukrainian Chamber of Commerce, and discusses the current mood among businesses in the country. Meanwhile, the West continues to ratchet up sanctions on Russia.

The financier Bill Browder, who did business in Russia for many years, but has become an anti-corruption campaigner after his lawyer Sergei Magnitsky died in a Russian jail after being beaten and tortured, offers his assessment of whether the sanctions go far enough to have much impact on the situation.

Plus, South Africa's finance minister Enoch Godongwana has just made his maiden Budget speech, including a tax cut for companies and a policy of wage restraint for civil servants. Siobhan Redford is an economist at RMB bank, and fills us in on the details.

Also in the programme, the International Energy Agency warns that worldwide emissions of the global warming gas methane may be around 70% higher than countries actually report. We find out about the economic arguments in favour of plugging methane leaks from Christophe McGlade of the IEA's Energy Supply Unit.

The latest cyber attacks on Ukraine are another reminder of the malign potential of digital technology in the wrong hands - though saying that invites a lot of questions about what is "right" or "wrong" in the context of the technology that now pervades every aspect of our lives. Can we take its fundamental neutrality for granted? We put some questions the author Stephanie Hare has been exploring in her new book, Technology is Not Neutral: A Short Guide to Technology Ethics.

THU 02:32 Assignment (w3ct1gyq)
Subscription scams

From pills that resolve chronic pain issues overnight to diet supplements which promise to help shed pounds in days, the internet is awash with adverts making bold - and often outrageous - claims. Some come with a celebrity endorsement, where household names appear to give their personal stamp of approval to a product. But many of these ads are fake, with customers tricked into parting with more money than they ever intended. For Assignment, Athar Ahmad, investigates the global growth of online subscription scams, where customers are unwittingly signed up to schemes which hit them with hidden charges, unexpected monthly fees and products which are made deliberately difficult to cancel. He hears from victims with chronic illnesses desperately searching for a solution to their ailments, who are instead left out of pocket and he speaks to the celebrities furious their names are being used to endorse such products. The programme sheds light on the creation of this global multi-million pound industry, exposing the tools, tricks and technology designed to scam unwitting customers. And Athar travels to Spain in search of answers about one of these schemes, which has left many customers in the UK feeling they’ve been conned.

How rationing changed me

Rationing looms large in the memories of a generation who lived through World War Two. Basic groceries were limited and getting enough food on the table became a daily challenge that went on long after the last bombs fell. Ruth Alexander brings together a German and an English woman, who grew up on opposite sides of the world’s deadliest ever conflict, to share their recollections of wartime eating. What was it like struggling to find food, how did they adapt, and how has it changed their approach to food forever?

The US and UK announce new Russia sanctions

The world woke up on Thursday to a new war in eastern Europe. And even as fierce fighting continues in several parts of Ukraine - with the Russians advancing on multiple fronts - international condemnation has grown steadily louder.

We spoke with Sergei Goryashko - a senior reporter for BBC Russian in Moscow, Representative Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania and Dr Olga Kolokolova - a senior lecturer in finance at Manchester University on this matter.

Next, we look at how the US markets ended the day's trading in positive territory. Cary Leahey - Adjunct Professor of Economics at Columbia University explained how the markets fared and why.

Lastly, we look at how thirty years ago, Ukraine was one of the 15 constituent parts of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. When the Soviet Union broke up in 1991, internal boundaries became international borders. That's the point at which The BBC's Matt Davies took up the story with Peter Conradi - Europe Editor of The Sunday Times and author of the book Who Lost Russia? How the World Entered a New Cold War.

Reforming the ‘China Initiative’

A scheme in the US designed to prevent industrial espionage and the theft of intellectual property, is to be refocused after it was accused of unfairly targeting Chinese American scientists. We speak to Gang Chen, a professor from MIT who was falsely accused of financial crimes, and Holden Thorp Editor in Chief of the Journal Science who tells us why the ‘China Initiative’ is at odds with the reality of international scientific collaboration.

And a huge study of farmed animals in China, from raccoon dogs to porcupines and Asian badgers, reveals that they carry a wide range of pathogens, including forms of avian flu and coronaviruses. Virologist Eddie Holmes from the University of Sydney, who was involved in the analysis, says these viruses may have the potential to jump species and infect humans – possibly leading to another pandemic.

Streaming Wars: Survival of the Smallest?

The multibillion dollar streaming industry is thriving, but too much choice makes it a fragmented landscape. In order to survive, the smallest companies might have the edge. Entertainment reporter Katie Ceck says the current model of streaming is unsustainable, and that the trend towards big companies gobbling up smaller ones is the future. Despite being a cluttered market, film lecturer in Vancouver, Michael Baser says there's never been a better time to make diverse programming that was formerly constricted by advertisers. But the new age of freedom is rife with peril, as investors begin to demand profits from an overly saturated market - Georg Szalai from the Hollywood Reporter tells us how the producers will pull it off.

The 2014 annexation of Crimea

In 2014, Russia annexed the strategic Crimean peninsula from Ukraine. Although Crimea was also home to a large Russian naval base, the annexation was seen by Kyiv and the world as illegal. The crisis it caused was so acute, the world seemed on the brink of a new cold war. Louise Hidalgo has been speaking to one Crimean woman who lived through it.

The global debt crisis

This month the G20 came under criticism for failing to deliver a promised $100bn of additional funds to poorer countries to help with the economic fallout of the pandemic. Many of these countries suffered a significant financial crunch as their exports dropped while the price of imports went up. The World Bank says the recession of 2020 led to the largest single-year surge in global debt in decades. The Bank says the debt burden of 70 low income countries has risen by more than 12 percent. Countries that are considered middle-income and have relatively stable economies have also been hit. Last month Sri Lanka appealed to China, one of its biggest creditors, to reschedule its debts. Its foreign reserve shortage has led to a sharp reduction of oil imports, resulting in regular power cuts and further undermining economic activity. So how did the pandemic worsen the debt crisis? How much of the problem can be blamed on long-term economic mismanagement and corruption? And what should be the role of creditors like China, which has been criticised for the way it negotiates debt relief.

Russian assault on Ukraine continues

Russian troops are in northern districts of the capital Kyiv, Ukraine says, and video shows armoured vehicles advancing.

To get a sense of the advance of Russian forces, we hear live from the Ukrainian capital, Kyiv and we'll also hear about those trying to flee the fighting.

We get a view from Moscow to try to know what Mr Putin may have in mind and talk to Lithuanian's prime minister about their fears now.
