The future of Twitter

The Chief Executive of the social media company, Twitter, has acknowledged the company's future is uncertain after the board accepted a takeover offer from Elon Musk, the world's richest man. Mr Musk describes himself as a "free speech absolutist" and he says he will relax content restrictions on the platform - used by many celebrities, politicians, journalists and commentators. Some people have expressed their fears of a Musk takeover, which they say, will lead to an entirely ungoverned space - allowing propaganda, conspiracy theories and abuse to flourish. Others say they relish the prospect of the end of what they see censorship by a politically-correct West Coast tech elite. So what difference will Mr Musk's vision make to the Twitter user-experience? Will advertisers pay to be on a platform with more provocative content? And how much will change be constrained by the variety of rules governing digital media, around the world? Ritula Shah and a panel of guests discuss the future of Twitter.

How to deal with body shaming

We live in a world with constantly mounting standards of beauty and fitness. For many, it turns into a rollercoaster of feeling anxious and getting reassurance from other people that they look good. Often, it turns into negative self-image; if left unchecked, it can become a serious disorder.

But is there just one way to be fit, or one ideal look? How important is it to be neutral about the diverse range of body shapes and appearances around us? And what can be the different ways to tackle body image concerns and disorders?

In this edition of WorklifeIndia, we discuss ways of dealing with body shaming.

Tortured for tweeting?

When Kakwenza Rukirabashaija mocked the Ugandan president’s son on Twitter, he knew he was playing with fire. Within 24 hours, the satirist had been arrested, and says he was tortured before fleeing the country. Throughout the ordeal, he has not stopped tweeting. He wants the world to know what is happening in Uganda before he returns to face trial, risking his life in the process.

Kakwenza’s story is not unique, A report from Human Rights Watch says hundreds of people - opponents of President Yoweri Museveni - have been illegally detained and tortured in recent years.

We meet members of the Ugandan diaspora protesting the government’s actions online. They say their accounts have been hacked and hijacked by government-sponsored cybercriminals. And that even overseas, they may not be completely safe.

Sweden’s polarising pandemic response

In this episode of More Or Less, Tim Harford and journalist Keith Moore carve a nuanced path through one of the pandemic’s most polarising approaches.

Magic in the mind

It’s scientifically impossible to read minds, so how do some magicians seem to do it? Beatriz de la Pava delves into the world of mentalism with two renowned women mentalists who regularly amaze and mystify audiences around the world.

Ava Do is a magician, mentalist and deceptionist from Vietnam who moved to the United States at thirteen years old. Growing up navigating two different cultural identities, she became fascinated with the subjects of perception and social psychology. After studying Psychobiology at UCLA and working as a crisis counsellor, Ava has spent the last decade turning her academic background and real-world experience with human behavior into a unique style of entertainment.

Kruti Parekh from India began her professional career as a magician at an early age. As a child, Kruti performed on national television, and at the age of eleven she received the FIE Foundation National Award. She has been hailed the “youngest female mentalist in Asia”. Currently, she works as a motivational speaker for corporate events and impresses audiences with her skills as a mentalist.

Produced by Emily Naylor.

Ukrainian students

We bring together three Ukrainian students, who studied at different universities in Kyiv before the war, to hear about how they are continuing their education. One decided the solution was to do her exchange year abroad early, but the others have remained in the country and it’s not always easy to study.

“Mentally it’s really difficult,” says Tania Perednia, who is now at her family home in northern Ukraine. “For the first week, I was really apathetic. I couldn’t take in anything except for news and was really focussed on some basic things like getting water and food. My productivity is really low, however I’m quite optimistic.”

According to the United Nations, more than 11 million people are believed to have fled their homes in Ukraine since the conflict began and of those more than five million have left the country. Many are women and children.

Three Ukrainian women come together to share their stories of leaving their homes with young children. Single parent Sonia is now in Portugal with her daughter, after driving across multiple countries. Marharya is living in Switzerland with three children while her husband remains in Ukraine. Sonia has also remained in Ukraine but moved to a potentially safer area with her husband’s relatives and their daughter. They discuss love, family ties, guilt and being brave for your children.

French Algerian ballerina Chloe Lopes Gomes made history by becoming the first black female dancer at the Staatsballet Berlin ballet company.

Chloe speaks to Anna Bailey about the challenges of making the ballet world more inclusive.

When the celebrated Chilean dancer César Morales was a young child, a school excursion changed his life. César was taken to see the ballet Giselle at the Municipal Theatre of Santiago in Chile and he immediately fell in love with the art form. He speaks to us about defying the expectations of his traditional Chilean family by taking up ballet not football.

The Indian subcontinent’s record-breaking heatwave

Deadly heat has been building over the Indian sub-continent for weeks and this week reached crisis levels. India experienced its hottest March on record and temperatures over 40 degrees Celsius (and in some places approaching 50 degrees) are making it almost impossible for 1.4 billion people to work. It’s damaging crops and it’s just what climate scientists have been warning about. Roland Pease talks to Vimal Mishra of the Indian Institute of Technology in Gandhinagar about the impact and causes of the unprecedented heatwave.

What could be behind the incidence of hepatitis in young children around the world in recent months? Ordinarily, liver disease in childhood is extremely rare. Could a virus normally associated with colds be responsible or is the Covid virus involved? Roland Pease talks to virologist William Irving of Nottingham University.

Also in the programme:

Well, CrowdScience listener Arif and his children Maryam and Mohammed from India want to understand what’s going on in our heads when we go for a cycle, and how we learn to do it in the first place.

Marnie Chesterton is on the case, tracking down a neuroscientists studying how our brains and bodies work together to keep us balanced whether we’re walking or trying to ride a bicycle. She learns about the quirks of bicycle engineering from researchers in the Netherlands who are part of a lab entirely devoted to answering this question. In the process falling off of some unusual bicycles and uncovering the surprising truth that physics might not yet have a proper answer. And we peer deeper into our brains to find out why some memories last longer than others, whether some people can learn quicker than others and the best way to learn a new skill.

Can Honduras uproot the drugs trade?

Pascale Harter introduces stories from reporters in Honduras, Sao Tome & Principe, Ukraine and France.

Honduras never used to be known as a drug-producing nation – though it was often a transit country, through which traffickers smuggled cocaine north to the United States. But under the government of its disgraced former president Juan Orlando Hernandez, coca plantations have sprouted in some parts of the country. As Hernandez is due to be tried by a court in the United States for his alleged role in drug trafficking and money-laundering, Honduran authorities are trying to tackle the problem on the ground. Will Grant went out with an eradication team.

São Tomé and Príncipé is a textbook 'small island nation' - a tiny string of islands off the coast of Gabon, in the Gulf of Guinea, it only has a few hundred thousand citizens and not much territory. But like many other small island nations it’s dealing with a huge problem: climate change. It’s losing land to the sea and having to relocate whole communities. But as Tamasin Ford finds out, with the smallest economy in Africa, it has few means to fight what the United Nations calls 'the biggest threat modern humans have ever faced'.

Across Ukraine, millions of people are not only having to survive the daily shocks of war. They’re also having to deal with the shock of being targeted by Russia. So many old alliances, friendships and relationships, and lifetimes of memories, are now in question. In Odessa, Jen Stout heard plenty more about how deeply feelings have soured.

And from France there’s a tale of a change in political fashion. Hugh Schofield got kitted out smartly for the recently presidential election, only to find his sharp new suit hewing perhaps a little too closely to the personal style of President Emmanuel Macron. Has the narrow-cut, blue-wool two-piece become the uniform of the Paris political class – and what impression does it make on voters in the rest of the country?

Shifting Cultures: From paddock to plate

On Queensland’s Western Downs the Penfold family, Dan, Karen and their four daughters run 40,000 hectares of beef cattle. The farm has been in the family for four generations and with no sons, it is now the girls who will take over the family business and stay on the land. But they plan to do it differently, embracing the shifting cultures of 21st Century agricultural life; caring for the environment, international trade and sustainability. And the challenges are huge - drought, intense rain and volatile beef markets. But this family are determined to continue feeding the world well into the 21st Century.

Making movies helped me heal after my dad's murder

Joël Karekezi is a Rwandan director, scriptwriter and producer with a string of awards to his name. His films, such as Imbabazi: The Pardon, and The Mercy of the Jungle, deal with issues around the brutality of conflict and war, but also the possibility of forgiveness and hope. And they are themes that were set in his mind from a very young age. Because when he was a boy, Joël lived through the Rwandan genocide, in which an estimated 800,000 ethnic Tutsis and moderate Hutus were killed by extremist Hutu militias. Making films has given Joël a chance to make sense of what he and his family went through during that time.

A longer version of this interview was first broadcast in July 2020.

Why are we so judgemental about how others beautify themselves?

From Instagram Face to pretty privilege, the male gaze to “anti-feminism”, cultural appropriation to the capitalist machine - a tour of the cosmetic cuts surprisingly deep.

Not even water?

It is the number one question asked to anyone who is fasting for Ramadan, which began at the beginning of April. But what is Ramadan? Why Fast? And how do young Muslims manage Ramadan in their respective lives and work?

Former teacher turned journalist Mehreen Baig goes in search of the answers by speaking to Muslims from different cultural backgrounds. She explores all aspects of fasting like abstaining from food, sex, music and of course…water. Basically everything you wanted to know about but either didn’t ask or just weren't aware of.

Slick: The Story of Oil, Shell and Nigeria

Slick: 4. The oil thieves

The newest player in the Niger Delta is not a multinational company, it is Nigeria’s enormous illegal oil industry. Oil thieves cut the pipelines, siphoning off oil, which they refine in the bush and sell on the black market.

BBC West Africa correspondent Mayeni Jones meets an oil thief king pin, as well as an exuberant local politician, taking on this illegal business and treks deep into the forests of the Niger Delta to visit an underground refinery.

And we catch up with Victoria Bera. For decades, she has been in a prolonged legal battle against Shell in courthouses around the world. Will she finally get the justice she seeks?

The accordion wars of Lesotho

A form of oral poetry accompanied on the accordion is the basis of a wildly popular form of music in Lesotho, southern Africa. But jealousy between Famo artists has triggered warfare that’s killing hundreds. Some of the genre’s best-known stars became gang bosses, and their rivalry has helped make rural, stunningly beautiful Lesotho the murder capital of Africa, with the sixth highest homicide rate in the world. Musicians, their relatives, producers and DJs have all been gunned down. Whole communities live in fear, and are now demanding action from politicians and police who are accused of protecting the Famo gangsters. Tim Whewell tells the story of a style of music that developed among Basotho migrant workers in the tough world of South African mines. He meets some of Famo's greatest artists - now disgusted by the violence - and talks to the families of victims of a cycle of revenge that the authorities appear unable to end.

Also, Russia says it's introducing its own currency in the occupied region of Kherson from today -- in a sign that it intends to hang on to its conquests. We hear from a resident in Kherson.

Emperor Nero: Bad boy of Ancient Rome

Nero fiddled while Rome burned, didn’t he? At least, that’s what the history books tell us. Nero’s image as a depraved tyrant has been handed down to us by three biased sources, written after the emperor’s suicide in 68AD. These sources have informed interpretations of Nero’s legacy ever since, so much so that his involvement in the Great Fire of Rome has become a meme.

Recent scholarship has sought to rehabilitate Nero to a certain extent, to try to understand him in the context of his time. He was indeed a man who succeeded in shocking the Roman elite, but also someone who could strike a chord with the public and was well thought of outside the centre of political intrigue.

Rajan Datar attempts to separate fact from fiction, with guests Dr Ginna Closs, Associate Professor of Classics at the University of Massachusetts Amherst in the US and author of While Rome Burned: Fire, Leadership, and Urban Disaster in the Roman Cultural Imagination which was published in 2020; and Dr Evan Jewell, Assistant Professor of History at Rutgers University, Camden. He’s writing a book entitled Youth and Power: Acting Your Age in the Roman Empire; and Dr Shushma Malik, Senior Lecturer in Classics at the University of Roehampton. She’s the author of The Nero-Antichrist: Founding and Fashioning a Paradigm.

Zelensky: The making of a president

For weeks Volodymyr Zelensky has been leading his nation against a devastating invasion by Russia. As Ukraine continues to resist one of the most powerful armies in the world, President Zelensky has been lauded as the man of this moment. Yet the man who had spent most of his life telling jokes was a political novice when first elected. The BBC’s correspondent in Ukraine, Jonah Fisher, first met Volodymyr Zelensky in January 2019 when he was known as a comedian and actor. He charts Zelensky's incredible journey from comedian to internationally acclaimed wartime leader of his country.

Could Chile be a climate leader?

The renowned climate scientist and IPCC author Maisa Rojas has been making headlines after being appointed as Chile’s new Minister for the Environment. She has pledged to deliver a green, sustainable and resilient future – and a ‘just transition’ to renewables from an economy that has to date been reliant on mining, forestry and agriculture.
The legacy of General Augusto Pinochet has cast a long shadow over Chile, so one of the first hurdles is a vote on a new constitution in July which would ease the passage of new climate legislation. The new government of leftist leader Gabriel Boric also faces a divided Congress, and will need to galvanise support for a radical new agenda.
Chile has vast potential for solar energy and hydropower, providing the infrastructure is in place to transmit it to different parts of the country. Can the government play a leading role globally in shifting to great dependency on renewables – and closing down coal-fired power stations in the coming decade?

Presenters Kate Lamble and Mora Morrison are joined by:
Maisa Rojas, Minister for Environment for the Chilean government and climatologist
Claudia Heiss, head of political science at the Institute of Public Affairs at Universidad de Chile.

Why was I adopted? Women looking for birth stories

What's it like being adopted into a country far away from your birth and into a family that looks very different to you? International and transracial adoptions both come with challenges for children and parents. Beatriz de la Pava talks to two women born in Colombia and South Korea about trying to fit in and discovering more about their roots.

Janine Vance was adopted from Seoul by an American couple along with her twin sister when they were six months old. A trip to South Korea in 2004 to an event marking 50 years of intercountry adoption caused her to think more deeply about her heritage. She found out that while most adoptees had been told they were orphans, this wasn't the case and parents were looking for them. She's written several books about adoption and wants to make the process of international adoption more transparent.

Yennifer Dallmann Villa was adopted from Colombia by a German couple when she was two years old. She always had a passion to know more about where she'd come from and as an adult discovered a huge online community of adoptees searching for birth families and origin stories. In her 20s she went to Colombia to photograph and write about First Mothers looking for children who'd been taken and adopted. She featured on a TV programme there which helped her find her birth family and is currently living in Colombia.

Living face-to-face with climate change

What’s it like to live in a country on the sharp end of climate change? Today Tamasin Ford takes you to Sâo Tomé and Príncipe, the twin island nation in the gulf of Guinea. With the smallest economy in Africa, it has few means to fight what the UN calls the biggest threat modern humans have ever faced.
We hear from coastal communities whose homes have been washed away because of rising sea levels.

President Carlos Vila Nova, who spoke at the United Nation’s climate conference in Glasgow last year, lays out the challenges small island nations face. While Luisa Madruga from the charity, Flora and Fauna International, explains how a new initiative could save fish stocks from disappearing altogether.

How do you balance on a bicycle?

How do we stay up when we ride a bicycle? Lots of us can do it without even thinking about it, but probably very few of us can say exactly HOW we do it. Well, CrowdScience listener Arif and his children Maryam and Mohammed from India want to understand what’s going on in our heads when go for a cycle, and how we learn to do it in the first place.

Presenter Marnie Chesterton is on the case, tracking down a neuroscientist studying how our brains and bodies work together to keep us balanced whether we’re walking or trying to ride a bicycle. She learns about the quirks of bicycle engineering from researchers in the Netherlands who are part of a lab entirely devoted to answering this question. In the process falling off of some unusual bicycles and uncovering the surprising truth that physics might not yet have a proper answer. And we peer deeper into our brains to find out why some memories last longer than others, whether some people can learn quicker than others and the best way to learn a new skill.

How I discovered the Wood Wide Web

When Professor Suzanne Simard published her research proving that trees communicate and trade with each other underground she made an enemy of the powerful Canadian logging industry. Though she faced resistance and sexism Suzanne refused to back down, continuing to make astonishing discoveries about how trees in the forest work together.

South African divers Craig Foster and Ross Frylinck dive into the kelp forests just off Cape Town. They told Outlook's Mohammed Allie about the magical underworld there. This interview was first broadcast 8 November 2018.

EU energy ministers hold emergency meeting on phasing out Russian supplies

Today, the EU is attempting to agree on a harmonised approach to the continuing issue of oil and gas imports from Russia. Member states' energy ministers are holding an emergency meeting. Sam Fleming, the Financial Times' bureau chief in Brussels, tells us what was on their agenda. Meanwhile in Berlin, India's PM Narendra Modi has arrived for a meeting with the German Chancellor, Olaf Scholz. Yeshi Seli, a journalist in New Delhi, says it's happening at a time when India is under immense Western pressure to reduce its ties to Russia. Elsewhere, Kenya's president, Uhuru Kenyatta, has announced a hike to the country's minimum wage. Kenyan analyst Churchill Ogutu describes how the news has been received in the country. The BBC's Theo Leggett has a chat with Henrik Fisker, founder of battery powered vehicle company Fisker, about how he believes there's plenty of room in the electric car market for his firm to exist alongside Elon Musk's Tesla. In the last day we've learned that the streaming giant Netflix has cancelled development on Pearl - the animated series about a young girl inspired by influential women in history - that was being produced as part of a deal with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Julian Aquilina, a senior TV analyst at the media research firm, Enders Analysis, explains why the company is having to take a serious look at its budget for original content.

Ukrainian live streamers: How life has changed

From influencers to makeshift war reporters - that's how many popular Ukrainian vloggers and live streamers have seen their day jobs suddenly change since the invasion of Russia. Many of them say they now feel it's their duty to talk about the war rather than life hacks or the latest gaming releases - especially as the gaming site Twitch is still broadcasting in Russia and reaches a Russian audience. We hear a conversation with a Ukrainian YouTuber and a Ukrainian Twitch streamer.

We also continue to bring you the latest from Ukraine. The BBC has been speaking to two mothers who made the journey out of the Avostal steelworks in the besieged city of Mariupol last week to Zaporizhzhia, which Ukraine still controls. And we hear from our correspondent from BBC Ukrainian on the matter.

Also, we look closer at Iraq, where the skies have turned orange because of a dust storm. Dozens have been hospitalised and flights have grounded due to poor visibility in Baghdad, Najaf and Erbil. Experts warn that the storms could become more frequent due to drought and low rainfall.

And we hear from our Africa health correspondent on the story that Africa's first factory that was meant to make and distribute covid-19 vaccinations across the continent is at risk of closing after receiving no orders at all.

The Curious Cases of Rutherford and Fry

The Mystery of the Teenage Brain

‘Why are teens prone to risky behaviour?’ asks Dr Mark Gallaway, ‘especially when with their friends?’ 13 year old Emma wonders why she’s chatty at school but antisocial when she gets home. And exasperated mum Michelle wants to know why her teens struggle to get out of bed in the morning.

Swirling hormones and growing bodies have a lot to answer for but, as Professor of Psychology from the University of Cambridge Sarah-Jayne Blakemore explains, there’s also a profound transformation going on in the brain.

Hannah and Adam discover how the adolescent brain is maturing and rewiring at the cellular level and why evolution might have primed teens to prefer their peers over their parents. Frances Jensen, Professor of Neurology at the University of Pennsylvania, tells us how all these brain changes can impact social relationships. And Dr Rachel Sharman, a sleep researcher from the University of Oxford, reports the surprising findings from her sleep study tracking 100 teenagers around the UK.

The Grand Egyptian Museum

More than 10 years and one billion dollars in the making, the Grand Egyptian Museum is the sort of big statement architecture the Pharaohs would surely have respected. Built on a 120-acre site – just 2km from the pyramids of Giza – and housing 55,000 objects, this will be the world’s largest archaeological museum, served by a purpose-built international airport.

Buildings such as this represent much more than a generous space for ancient artefacts. This is a prestige project that, it is hoped, will place Cairo very much back on the global map as the Egyptian government encourages the revival of mass tourism after a turbulent and damaging decade.

Within Egypt, it is hoped the grand museum will attract six million visitors a year, while helping to heal cultural divisions and restoring national pride. Will it work?

Nitin Sawhney

The composer and multi-instrumentalist Nitin Sawhney has been commissioned to write a contemporary piece in response to Benjamin Britten’s piece War Requiem, which was premiered 60 years ago.

Nitin’s new piece, like Benjamin Britten’s work, will be premiered in Coventry Cathedral in England’s Midlands. It will be performed both inside the cathedral and in the preserved ruins of the old cathedral that was bombed in WWII. The new work, called Ghosts in the Ruins, will be a response to Britten’s War Requiem but with a 21st century twist, concentrating on the plight of refugees and migrants. In the Studio follows Nitin as he works with professional musicians, poets and community choirs to create this site-specific work of art.

Known for studio albums including the acclaimed Beyond Skin, Nitin's career has seen him collaborate with major international artists including Paul McCartney, Sting, Mira Nair, Anoushka Shankar, Norah Jones and Herbie Hancock, as well as working with Nelson Mandela. His film and TV music includes Netflix's Mowgli and the BBC’s epic Human Planet series. In 2017, he received the Ivor Novello Lifetime Achievement Award.

Using lotteries to make us better people

Lotteries aren’t just about winning money. They’re also being used to nudge people to change their behaviour.

In the UK we try out a mobile app that enters users in to a £25,000 lottery every time they pick up a piece of litter.

We see how heart patients in the US can win smaller prizes for taking their pills… and if they don’t take their medicine, are told what they could have won.

And we look at receipt lotteries, where customers are encouraged to get receipts as each one is an entry to a big monthly draw. The scheme started in Taiwan but has been replicated in a number of countries, helping governments find the businesses avoiding tax.

Female digital entrepreneurs in Africa

During the pandemic businesses shut down and traditional jobs were lost forcing people to rethink how they earn a living. Since then one of the biggest shifts in the economy has been the rise of digital platforms – online market places which sell everything from fruit and veg to TVs and kitchen appliances. In Africa women have found new careers using Facebook and WhatsApp as well as ride-hailing apps like Uber and Bolt.

Sam Fenwick meets three women who have found financial independence by starting businesses on these platforms. Josephine Adzogble from Accra in Ghana has a business selling electrical appliances via social media. Ayobami Lawal drives taxis in Lagos, Nigeria. The single mum of four talks about the challenges of being a woman in a male-dominated environment. And Sharon Tarit from Eldoret, Kenya sublets properties through AirBnB. She started her business after she was forced to permanently close her shop selling baby clothes during the pandemic.

Sam Fenwick is also joined by lead researcher at Caribou Digital, Grace Natabaalo who explains why it’s important for women to have financial independence and the impact female workers can have on a country’s economy.

Tales of modern marriage: My Big Fat Greek Wedding

In today's Outlook, a selection of stories from the archive which look at modern marriage today.

It's been 20 years since Nia Vardalos wrote and starred in the biggest grossing romantic comedy of all time. My Big Fat Greek Wedding told the true - and hilarious - story of Nia introducing her non-Greek fiance into her large, eccentric and at times overbearing family. She spoke to Mathew Bannister in July 2016 about the advice she'll be giving her own daughter about marriage.

Back in 2010, Chen Wei-yi, who goes by the name Only, had a most unusual wedding when she married herself in a ceremony in Taiwan. She was about to turn 30, and felt under increasing pressure to find a husband - not least because the Taiwanese government was worried about the low birth rate and was pushing a publicity campaign to encourage marriage and parenthood. Just ahead of her wedding Outlook's Cindy Sui went to meet her. This was first broadcast in November 2010.

Another unique wedding took place in 2017 in the city of Bangalore in the south of India. The couple involved said it was the country's first multi-religious transgender marriage ceremony. It came after the Indian government passed a law officially recognising transgender people as a "third gender". But despite this, people still faced discrimination and often married in secret. Mary-Rose Abraham went to meet the newlyweds Vasudev V and Akkai Padmashalli, in March 2017.

And finally, we hear from British couple Alex Pelling and Lisa Gant. When the BBC's Rayhan Demytrie caught up with them in Tblisi, Georgia in 2014, they'd already had 65 weddings in 50 countries, but were still not legally married.

Leak suggests US abortion law change

A leaked 98-page document, purporting to be a draft majority opinion of the US Supreme Court, suggests the national right to abortion might be overturned this summer. A decision is due in June or July. We hear analysis on the unprecedented leak, and get reaction from people who support and oppose the overturning of Roe v Wade - the 1973 ruling that legalised abortion across the US.

Also in the programme: a resident of Kherson tells us about life under Russian occupation in southern Ukraine; and we find out what caused a so-called stock market "flash crash" in Europe.

Bumper BP profits despite accounting loss

Oil giant BP booked bumper underlying profits despite a big loss on its exit from Russia. Bill Farren-Price is an energy analyst at Enverus, and explains the figures. And we explore whether oil firms are likely to face windfall taxes on their profits, after Italy increased such a tax, with Chiara Albanese from Bloomberg in Rome. Also in the programme, the BBC's Mike Johnson examines why Turkey is seeking to rebrand itself with its Turkish name, Türkiye. Plus, as a law firm tells its employees they can work from home if they agree to a 20% pay cut, Emma Bartlett, employment law partner at CM Murray tells us whether it's an idea that is likely to catch on.

Scrapping the law would immediately make abortion illegal in 22 states. The court, which has a conservative majority, is expected to make a final decision in July.

We go to the US, where rival protesters have been demonstrating outside the US Supreme Court after a leaked document suggested it's about to overturn the ruling that legalised abortion nationwide. Scrapping the law would immediately make abortion illegal in 22 states. We look at what this could mean, both politically and culturally for the US. Our senior North America reporter answers questions from our listeners on this. And we hear from women on either side of the debate.

We’ll also bring the latest on the war in Ukraine where hundreds of Ukrainian civilians are still trapped in Mariupol steelworks as Russia resumes its attacks. We get the latest from our correspondents on the ground. And we hear a conversation with people who have just fled the Russian-occupied southern city of Kherson.

Electric road trip on Jersey

This week you can listen again to our electric vehicle Jersey road trip. Gareth and Bill are on the small English speaking island off the coast of France investigating the tech scene. We’re travelling around in an on-demand electric vehicle – all booked, paid for and locked and unlocked with an app from our smart phones. We’re finding out about agricultural tech on a dairy farm – how the famous Jersey Cows that produce premium milk are being managed by the latest innovations, and we’re also out in the fields where a host of sensors and data analytics are helping with the Jersey potato harvest. And we visit the remote control tower at St. Helier airport and see how remote airfields around the world are beginning to embrace this technology, pioneered on Jersey, to make flying to seldom used airports safer.

Guests include: Gavin Breeze, Director of Evie, Air traffic controllers Marc Hill and Richard Mayne, Jersey Cow Girl Becky Houzé and Mike Renouard Business Unit Director at the Jersey Royal Company.

The programme was presented by Gareth Mitchell with expert commentary from Bill Thompson. It was first broadcast on 14th September 2021.

US Supreme Court investigates abortion ruling leak

For nearly fifty years the US Supreme Court ruling in the case of Roe versus Wade has guaranteed the legal nationwide right to abortion. But a leaked document suggests that the same court looks set to strike down that ruling which would immediately make abortion illegal in more than twenty states.

Also on the programme, the British prime minister said they had failed during the 2014 Russian annexation of Crimea. Now, Russia may annex parts of the Donbas. And, over a hundred people have been successfully evacuated from the Mariupol's besieged Asovstal steelworks.

Calls for energy windfall tax grow as BP profits soar

Oil giant BP booked bumper underlying profits despite a big loss on its exit from Russia. We explore whether oil firms are likely to face windfall taxes on their profits, after Italy increased such a tax, with Dr Sandy Hager, a political economist at City, University of London. Leaked documents in the US have suggested the Supreme Court could be heading towards revoking the historic Roe vs Wade judgement from the 1970s that legalised abortion in the country. Just prior to that news and the political outcry that's followed, Amazon has more quietly told staff it would contribute up to $4,000 in travel expenses for employees seeking to get abortions, as well as certain other treatments. The move will help workers in states like Texas where most abortions have now been illegalised. We hear from Anthony Johndrow, who advises businesses, including tech firms, on their social issue positioning. Also in the programme, the BBC's Mike Johnson examines why Turkey is seeking to rebrand itself with its Turkish name, Türkiye.

Ed Butler is joined throughout the programme by Sarah Birke, The Economist’s Bureau Chief in Mexico and Robin Harding, Tokyo bureau chief for the Financial Times.

Bill Browder: Sanctioning Russia

Stephen Sackur speaks to Bill Browder, the American investor who made a fortune in post-Soviet Russia before falling foul of Vladimir Putin. Browder has long campaigned for Russia’s economic isolation - his lobbying has been instrumental in the US passing the Magnitsky Act in 2012, which imposed targeted sanctions on Russian individuals directly connected to rights abuses. Thanks to the invasion of Ukraine, Russia is now facing further Western sanctions. But Putin’s war machine hasn't yet ground to a halt and he shows no sign of reversing course. Has Russia’s economic resilience been underestimated?

The love story behind Nasa's alien mixtape

In 1977, Ann Druyan was a college dropout in New York when she became involved in a historic Nasa project to create a compilation record, or mixtape, to go aboard the Voyager 1 and 2 space probes. Intended as a message from humanity to aliens of the future, the Voyager Golden Record contains sights and sounds from Earth and is still hurtling through space today, billions of miles away. Ann was in charge of the record's eclectic playlist when she fell in love with the project's director - the renowned planetary scientist, Carl Sagan.

Mexico: The Yaqui fight back

Resistance and division among Mexico’s indigenous Yaqui people. Anabela Carlon is a legal advocate for the indigenous Yaqui of Sonora – a fierce defender of her people’s land. And she is no stranger to the immense dangers that face her in northern Mexico, a region dominated by organised crime. In 2016, she and her husband were kidnapped at gunpoint by masked men. And now one of her biggest cases is representing the families of 10 men from her community who disappeared last year.

In Mexico, the Yaqui of Sonora are known as, ‘the undefeated’. In spite of being hunted, enslaved and exiled, they are the only indigenous group never to have surrendered to Spanish colonial forces or the Mexican government. Somehow, eight communities survived along the River Yaqui. But there are deep divisions. Most of all, over whether a gas pipeline should be allowed on their land. Anabela Carlon is adamant it will not happen.

What’s the truth about Hunter Biden’s laptop?

Three weeks before the 2020 US presidential election a newspaper published contents of a laptop they said belonged to Hunter Biden, son of Joe Biden, who at that time was campaigning against Donald Trump to win the election. The contents allegedly revealed questionable business dealings that implicated Joe Biden, and lurid personal details of Hunter Biden’s life. Some media outlets refused to run the story and social media platforms blocked the content. Since then other newspapers have tried to verify the laptop data and it still remains controversial today with hints there are more revelations to come. Charmaine Cozier asks what is the truth about Hunter Biden’s laptop?

How the war in Ukraine has affected global tourism

Exclusive flight data from ForwardKeys shows a huge reduction in the number of Russian tourists going to Turkey and other popular resorts. We hear from businesses in Antalya about the impact it has had so far, and about what might happen over the coming holiday season. Experts Olivier Ponti from ForwardKeys, which analyses tourism trends, and Ana Nichols from EIU, which produces economic insight, explain the economic causes and effects of this reduction in travellers and the knock-on effects of the war. A B&B owner in The Seychelles tells us about a boom in Russian tourists last year, which has now completely vanished due to the invasion of Ukraine. We also hear from a Russian man who had booked a holiday there, but has changed his plans to go somewhere slightly colder instead.

The chemistry of cannabis

The Israel scientist Raphael Mechoulam has been researching what’s thought to be the world’s most popular drug since the 1960s. In 1964, he isolated Tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC – the compound that gets cannabis-users high. Later, Professor Mechoulam discovered another compound called CBD, or Cannabidiol, which has medical benefits without any kind of psychoactive effect. Recently, CBD has had a revolutionary impact on treating health conditions such as epilepsy. Prof Mechoulam talks to Claire Bowes.

Fertiliser and poison gas: The legacy of chemist Fritz Haber

German chemist Fritz Haber's discovery of how to turn atmospheric nitrogen into ammonia is seen as one of the most significant of 20th century science - it enabled the industrial manufacture of fertilisers, which now provide food for up to half the planet's people.

But he was also responsible for the development and deployment of poison gas on the battlefields of World War One and is remembered by some as the 'father of chemical warfare'. His was also a life touched by personal tragedy and a struggle against a Jewish heritage that at first threatened to hold back his career, and would later send him into exile.

Bridget Kendall examines a life that epitomises science’s capacity to create and to destroy.

We discovered we were stolen as babies

In 1975, when Maria Diemar was two months old, she was flown more than 8000 miles from Chile to Sweden to meet her adoptive parents. They couldn't have children of their own, and thought they could offer a home to a child from a poorer country. Two years later, they brought over another baby from Chile, just a few weeks old, and called him Daniel. The adoption agency didn't have much information about the children's biological parents, but were clear that - to their knowledge - their birth mothers had given them up willingly. Growing up, it wasn't easy for Maria or Daniel to live with the knowledge that they'd been given away. Both experienced discrimination in Sweden as a result of their skin colour. Daniel struggled with depression. Desperate to know more about where they came from, Maria set out to find the truth about their backgrounds, only to discover that they were part of a national scandal in Chile.

Faith in Journalism

According to some studies, journalists tend to be less religious than the general population. Some find solace in faith, but others begin to question it. So is it a profession which challenges your religious convictions, strengthens faith or attracts the faithless?

Atif Rashid, a Muslim, has started questioning his role as a journalist who believes in god. What place does religion have in the work that he does? To help him consider his future career steps he speaks to other journalists who have turned to god and others who have questioned their beliefs after seeing so much suffering as foreign correspondents. He meets other young Muslim reporters from the USA and the UAE and asks how their jobs impact their faith. And also catches up with two of his former editors - who quit their jobs to lead a more spiritual lifestyle one as a vicar and another as a monk. Along the way, he considers whether he should follow the same path.

In the 1980s, the minority Uyghur community in China staged some of the first protests against the all-powerful Communist Party.

In 1989, many Uyghur students enthusiastically supported the pro-democracy demonstrations centred on Beijing's Tiananmen Square. One of them was Aziz Isa Elkun, who talks to Josephine McDermott.

Ukraine war impact on climate pledges

The war in Ukraine has prompted a global reordering of energy markets as Europe looks to replace gas and oil imports from Russia. A few days after Russia invaded Ukraine in February, the UN issued a dire warning about the devastating consequences of climate change. The war has complicated the picture further. So, will events in Ukraine derail the green energy transition countries signed up to at COP26 just six months ago?
Some African countries would like to step in as Europe scrambles for alternative sources of energy. But much of the energy they'd provide is carbon based. So, are these just short term setbacks that could be overshadowed by a longer term move away from cheap Russian energy supplies? And what happens to climate change cooperation if the war is driving a wedge between the West and Russia? Ritula Shah and a panel of guests discuss how Russia's war in Ukraine will impact efforts to fight climate change.

How far could gene editing go?

Humans now have the ability to directly change their DNA, and gene-editing tool CRISPR has led to a new era in gene-editing. CrowdScience listener ‘Bones’ wants to know how gene-editing is currently being used and what might be possible in the future.

Gene-editing offers huge opportunities for the prevention and treatment of human diseases, and trials are currently underway in a wide range of diseases like sickle cell anaemia. CrowdScience presenter Caroline Steel finds out about some of the most promising work tackling disease before turning to consider the possibilities of using gene editing to enhance ourselves.

Will we be able to extend human longevity, swap our eye colour or improve athletic performance? And even if we can do all these things, should we?

As scientists push the boundaries of gene-editing and some people are DIY experimenting on themselves with CRISPR, we discuss the practical and ethical challenges facing this promising but potentially perilous area of science.
