What is the 'Great Replacement' conspiracy theory?

The suspect in Saturday’s killing of ten people at a Buffalo supermarket allegedly wrote a document endorsing the Great Replacement Theory. It’s a racist far-right conspiracy theory that falsely states there’s a secret plan to replace white people through increased immigration and other means. In the United States some politicians and mainstream media figures like Tucker Carlson of Fox News are accused of pushing a version of the theory when they insist Democratic Party immigration policies have the same aim. In Europe too, fears that white, Christian culture is being undermined have been stoked by far-right politicians across the continent. So how has Great Replacement Theory evolved? Is the basic philosophy behind it going mainstream? And what can and should be done to address the fears of people concerned about demographic change?

Chasing the Marcos millions

The former president of the Philippines Ferdinand Marcos Senior is thought to have plundered a huge amount of public money during military rule in the 1970s and '80s. He spent the fortune on foreign properties and the luxury lifestyle enjoyed by his wife, Imelda Marcos. American lawyer Robert Swift has spent decades trying to recover that money so it can paid out as compensation to the thousands of Filipinos who were imprisoned or tortured during martial law. He spoke to Matt Pintus.

The online boom in climate doom

It is hard not to feel anxious about climate change. After all, the world is already experiencing the effects of global warming - and scientists tell us much worse could still be on its way.

For some, tackling climate change feels like a lost cause: a job so big and complex, that it is doomed for failure - the demise of the human species is inevitable. This is wrong. But even though this view is predicated on falsehoods and distortions, it appears to be spreading online - and a lot of young people are getting sucked in. Why is "doomism" going viral? And who are the activists and campaigners standing up to it?

Are just 100 companies responsible for 71% of global emissions?

In the fight against global warming we’re constantly told to do our bit to reduce green house gas emissions. However, a claim circulating that just ‘100 companies are responsible for 71% of global emissions’ can make any individual effort seem futile. But does this claim mean what you think it means? We look into this and the claim that the pandemic pushed South African stress levels up by 56%. With guests Abbas Panjwani from Fullfact and Kirsten Cosser from Africa Check.

Tracing forgotten female ancestors

Kim Chakanetsa meets two genealogists passionate about uncovering the forgotten stories of their clients' female ancestors.

Kenyatta D Berry is a lawyer and genealogist from the USA. She is the author of The Family Tree Toolkit and the co-host of The Genealogy Roadshow on PBS. She caught the genealogy bug by chance, when she started looking into her ex-boyfriend’s family history. She is an expert on African American ancestry and on the specific challenges people who descend from enslaved individuals face when looking into their families’ past.

At the age of 15, Belgian Marie Cappart started looking into her country’s national archives to find out more about her great-aunt, Maggie Nicholls. During WWII, Maggie helped three Canadian pilots survive in Nazi-occupied Belgium. She was later arrested and killed because of that. Marie went on to graduate in history and wrote several books, including Guide to Genealogy in Belgium. She is also the country manager for the online genealogy platform MyHeritage and she helps other people track down their ancestors.

The Buffalo shooting

Once again, the United States is discussing race, guns and mass shootings after the killing of 10 people at a supermarket in Buffalo, New York State.

On Saturday 14 May, an armed young man wearing body armour drove more than three hours across New York State to the city.

The 18-year-old suspect, who is white, stopped at a supermarket in a predominantly black district and opened fire. Those who died were black. The crime is believed to be racially motivated.

Host Ben James hears the reactions among those living and working in Buffalo. We also bring a sense of the conversations across the country.

Two hosts from black-owned radio stations in Chicago and Pennsylvania reflect on experiences of racism and what it’s like to be black in the United States.

One of the hosts, Solomon Jones from WURD Radio in Philadelphia tell us: “Where I feel unsafe is when I leave my community and if I go to a place that’s unfamiliar where I am the one that’s standing out as a black person. Because you have people who will kill you for nothing, other than you are black.”

The 14-year-old Ukrainian golfer making the cut

One of golf's most prestigious events, the USPGA, is taking place in Oklahoma. The tournament has come a little too early in the career of 14-year-old Ukrainian Lev Grinberg, but could his name one day be on the trophy? Last week Lev became the second youngest player to make the cut at a professional tournament. We hear from Lev and his dad Illya.

It's been a big week for men's football. Jake Daniels, who plays for Blackpool in the second tier of the professional game in England became the first openly gay player in thirty years. The fact that he is the first man in such a long time to come out whilst still playing, highlights just how difficult and challenging it still is for gay men in professional sport. For many different reasons, they can't be their authentic self in a sporting setting. Ryan O'Callaghan had a successful career in the NFL, but despite coming out to his family while still playing, it wasn't until after his retirement he felt comfortable telling the world. He tells us his story.

Plus we are live in Turin ahead of the Women's Champions League final. We'll review the Premier League season with Flo Lloyd Hughes and Sachin Nakrani, and find out what referee Jon Moss has planned once he hangs up his whistle for the last time on Sunday.

Mariupolchanka FC: Surviving the siege of Mariupol

Mariupol has been mostly destroyed. The southern Ukrainian city has endured weeks of relentless bombardment and now many of the city’s 400,000 inhabitants are in mourning. Mariupol emerged as a cultural heartland in the past few years, buoyed by investment and community energy. Now much of it is in ruins.

Vitaliy Shevchenko from BBC Monitoring, who is from the neighbouring Ukrainian city of Zaporizhzhia, follows the experience of the Mariupolchanka FC, a self-made professional women’s football team from the city and self-proclaimed “family of choice”. Vitaliy explores the city through their eyes, before the war and during the war, as they make difficult decisions about how to endure the destruction of their lives.

Do online ads actually work, or could it be that some of the biggest names in global tech - from Google to Facebook - are founded on a false prospectus?

How can we live an ethical life?

Is it unethical to eat animals? Can you be a good person if you have spare money and don’t give any of it to charity? What is the moral response to the war in Ukraine?

He’s been described as the world’s most influential philosopher and, on one occasion, as the world’s most dangerous man.

He explains what it means to him to live an ethical life and discusses some of his often controversial ideas including animal rights, euthanasia, the right to life and his stance on abortion in light of the news that the US Supreme Court may overturn Roe vs Wade.

Being country is being yourself, with Scotty McCreery, Tenille Arts, Matt Stell and Hailey Whitters

Country music stars Scotty McCreery, Tenille Arts, Matt Stell and Hailey Whitters discuss scrapping all of their work after the pandemic, trying to fit in to country radio, relating to fans who go through the same struggles, and being true to yourself in your writing.

Scotty McCreery is a singer-songwriter from North Carolina, USA, and he loves those mountains. And his truck. He started playing guitar at the age of 9 or 10, and sang at school and at church. At 16 he auditioned for American Idol, and went on to win the competition in 2011. Tenille Arts is orignally from Saskatchewan, Canada, but now based in Nashville. Her single Somebody Like That made history in 2021 as the first song written, performed, and produced by an all-female team to top the country charts. Matt Stell is a singer and guitarist from Arkansas, USA, whose massive hit Prayed For You spent two weeks at the number one spot in 2019 and catapulted him to the country big leagues.

Breaking the boundaries of fiction

How novelists working across popular genres like crime, horror and fantasy are overcoming literary snobbery to get their work the credit it deserves and broaden the definition of what makes truly great writing.

South Korean horror writer Bora Chung, shortlisted for the 2022 International Booker Prize, tells us what it means to see her work, a type of fiction often dismissed in her country as commercial and not ‘pure literature,’ nominated for the prestigious award.

Crime novelists from two very different countries, Deon Meyer in South Africa and Awais Khan in Pakistan, discuss with Tina Daheley why theirs is a misunderstood genre, one with the capacity to offer a social critique, and even change society for the better, all in the process of telling a great story.

Critically acclaimed New Zealand fantasy novelist Elizabeth Knox shares the magic of imagining fantastical new worlds, and how writing and reading fantasy can help us come to terms with traumatic experiences.

Death in the rainforest

Tree mortality in tropical moist forests in Australia has been increasing since the mid 1980s. The death rate of trees appears to have doubled over that time period. According to an international team of researchers, the primary cause is drier air in these forests, the consequence of human-induced climate change. According to ecologist David Bauman, a similar process is likely underway in tropical forests on other continents.

Also in the programme: the outbreaks of monkeypox in Europe and North America… Could SARS-CoV-2 infection lingering in the gut be a cause of Long Covid? News of a vaccine against Epstein Barr virus, the cause of mononucleosis, various cancers and multiple sclerosis.

Digging and excavating are bywords for archaeology. But why does history end up deep under our feet?

This question struck CrowdScience listener Sunil in an underground car park. Archaeological remains found during the car park’s construction were displayed in the subterranean stairwells, getting progressively older the deeper he went. How had these treasures become covered in so much soil over the centuries?

CrowdScience visits Lisbon, the capital of Portugal – and home to the above-mentioned multi-storey car park. The city has evidence of human habitation stretching back into prehistory, with remnants of successive civilisations embedded and jumbled up below today’s street level. Why did it all end up like this?

Human behaviour is one factor, but natural processes are at work too. Over at Butser Ancient Farm, an experimental archaeology site in the UK, we explore the myriad forces of nature that cover up – or expose - ancient buildings and artefacts over time.

The missing women of Afghanistan

Rebecca Kesby introduces dispatches from journalists and correspondents in Afghanistan, Lebanon, Cambodia and Germany.

When the Taliban took control of Afghanistan in August last year their movement made much of its promises on human rights. Women could still work, and girls still attend education, they claimed. Rules about female dress and behaviour wouldn’t be as strict as they had been when the Taliban ruled in the 1990s. But since the Taliban takeover, girls’ secondary education has nearly disappeared, women aren’t permitted to travel without male guardians and are now strongly advised to stay at home – and cover their bodies and faces if they step outside. In a prison in Herat, Ramita Navai recently found a number of women who’d been arrested and held without charge, supposedly for “crimes of immorality”. For some, being locked up was only the start of their troubles – and being released put no end to them.

Lebanon’s recent history reads like a list of overlapping crises: a mass protest movement convulsing the streets, endless power and water cuts, a drastic economic contraction – and then the huge blast which wrecked the port of Beirut in 2020. Do its recent elections provide any reasons for optimism? Leila Molana Allen has spoken to politicians and voters who insist change can still happen – and that the nation can still be saved.

These days, the international art world is reconsidering its attitude to the precious objects of the past. Collectors and museums in Western countries are under increasing pressure to be sure their collections are legitimate – and not full of works stolen or looted from the original sites. The countries and peoples where some art works originated are increasingly demanding them back. Cambodia, too, wants to reclaim some of the cultural treasures which
were taken from its temples during the chaotic time of the Khmer Rouge regime and its aftermath. Celia Hatton explores what it might mean for Cambodians to have some of its sacred statues back in place.
Every ten years, for nearly four centuries, the people of the small Bavarian village of Oberammergau have kept to a historic vow – to mount a stage production recounting the story of the life and crucifixion of Jesus Christ. After being held up for two years by the Covid pandemic, the new “cycle” which was due to be acted out in 2020 is now ready for its public. Adrian Bridge talked to the players about what the drama means to them – and how it’s become a landmark in their lives.

How a stoma changed my life

Thinking about how food passes through your body may not be something that crosses your mind, but for people who have had stoma surgery, they’re aware of it at every meal.
Tamasin Ford explores what it’s like to live with a stoma bag and how it redefines your relationship with food.
We speak to three women who have had lifesaving operations to have a stoma bag fitted. The surgery tends to involve either the small or large intestine, with a stoma creating an opening on the skin of the abdomen to bypass the normal digestion process. Instead digested content is diverted to a pouch, worn on the outside of your body.
We find out how they learned to eat again after having surgery, what they're doing to fight the stigma around stomas, and how they’re embracing their new lives with stoma bags. Joining us are Aisha Islam in Saudi Arabia, Alisa Kuivasto in Finland and Gill Castle in the United Kingdom.

My revolutionary 70s summer camp

Jim LeBrecht experienced four blissful and free summers during the 1970s at Camp Jened. This was a progressive camp for disabled teenagers in the Catskill mountains of upstate New York that was filled with music, love and parties. It was a radical break from the way many of the kids there had been treated in the past and for many of the campers, including Jim, it transformed the way they approached their adult lives. Jim went on to become a sound recordist in California and has co-directed the Netflix film called Crip Camp about his happy memories there. A longer version of this interview was first broadcast in April 2020.

Finding faith on a warship

BBC Faith and Ethics reporter Claire Jones has been granted exclusive access on board British warship HMS Northumberland while on deployment to the North Sea.

As Russian troops continue to invade Ukraine, Claire explores faith on a warship, and whether armed forces personnel can ‘find their faith’ in times of trouble or unrest.

The military chaplain onboard the warship is Reverend Dr Louisa Pittman, one of three female chaplains in the Royal Navy. She caters for all faiths, never carries a weapon, and holds no rank so the captain or a junior rating can speak freely.

Claire follows her as she carries out her duties and hears from sailors onboard about what their faith means to them in times of conflict.

SUN 14:06 The Forum (w3ct38sb)
Eunuchs and empires

Since ancient times the practice of castrating pre-pubescent boys, and sometimes men, was thought to make them loyal servants, suitable for roles at the heart of many imperial courts. Some historians believe this began with human slaves who were treated in the same way as animals – as lesser beings to be managed and controlled – with no free choice.

The effects of castration on the male body – the loss of testosterone being the principal one – had a huge impact on how eunuchs have been viewed throughout history. Being unable to father children who could threaten lines of succession, certain eunuchs rose to power precisely because of their exclusive access to the inner workings of empires. Castrated men were also prized for their singing voices in 17th and 18th century Europe, as Dr Brianna Robertson-Kirkland explains.

Bridget Kendall discusses this painful episode with Norman Kutcher, Professor in the Department of History at the Maxwell School at Syracuse University in the US. He specialises in imperial Chinese history, and he’s the author of Eunuch and Emperor in the Great Age of Qing Rule; Dr Kathryn Reusch, conservation technician at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, who's published widely on the topic of castration in relation to archaeological remains; and Shaun Tougher, Professor of Late Roman and Byzantine History at Cardiff University. He’s written many books and articles on eunuchs, including The Roman Castrati: Eunuchs in the Roman Empire.

The Curious Cases of Rutherford and Fry

Surprising symmetries

Two eyes, two arms, two legs - we are roughly symmetrical on the outside, but inside we are all over the place! We just have one heart, which is usually on the left, one liver on the right, one spleen and one appendix. "Why is that?" wonders listener Joanne.

Our science sleuths discover that being symmetrical down the middle - at least on the outside - is by far the most common body plan across the animal kingdom. Professor Sebastian Shimeld from the University of Oxford takes us on a journey into the deep evolutionary past, to uncover how two-sided body structures first emerged in ancient worm-like creatures, and why this layout eventually proved so useful for swimming, walking and flying.

Garden snails turn out to be a surprising exception – their shells coil in one direction and on just one side of their body. Professor Angus Davison from the University of Nottingham tells the tale of his international quest to find a romantic partner for Jeremy – a rare left-coiling snail who could only mate with another left-coiling snail!

Dr Daniel Grimes from the University of Oregon unfolds the delicate mechanisms by which an initially symmetrical embryo starts to develop differently down one side, and everyone puzzles over the mystery of the left-handed 'mirror molecules' - so called L-amino acids - which turn out to be the building blocks of every living organism. A curious case indeed!

Female collectives and neighbourhood feminists

Collectives offer opportunities for like-minded individuals to unite over a common goal, approaching issues with a shared vision and democratic mindset. They can range in size from just a handful of people to thousands, and they have the ability to disrupt the status quo and be vessels for remarkable change. But what’s it like to start one?

Kim Chakanetsa speaks to two women who have founded female collectives making a difference.

Aya Chebbi is a Tunisian diplomat and a pan-African and feminist activist. Named in Forbes Africa’s 50 Most Powerful Women, she rose to global prominence as a political blogger during Tunisia’s Revolution in 2010/2011. In November 2018 she became the first appointed African Union Envoy on Youth, and was the youngest senior official in the history of the African Union. In 2021, Aya established the Nala Feminist Collective, which brings together 17 acclaimed African feminists to unite behind Africa’s agenda nationally and globally.

Camila Montecinos Díaz is a Psychologist and therapist from Chile. She moved to the Netherlands four years ago where she co-founded Neighborhood Feminists, a collective based in Amsterdam which helps combat period poverty. They provide Dignity Kits with menstrual products and basic toiletries. Currently, they help over one hundred people each month and in total have distributed over 80,000 tampons.

Why does ancient stuff get buried?

Digging and excavating are bywords for archaeology. But why does history end up deep under our feet?

This question struck CrowdScience listener Sunil in an underground car park. Archaeological remains found during the car park’s construction were displayed in the subterranean stairwells, getting progressively older the deeper he went. How had these treasures become covered in so much soil over the centuries?

CrowdScience visits Lisbon, the capital of Portugal – and home to the above-mentioned multi-storey car park. The city has evidence of human habitation stretching back into prehistory, with remnants of successive civilisations embedded and jumbled up below today’s street level. Why did it all end up like this?

Human behaviour is one factor, but natural processes are at work too. Over at Butser Ancient Farm, an experimental archaeology site in the UK, we explore the myriad forces of nature that cover up – or expose - ancient buildings and artefacts over time.

Recipes and storytelling: changing perceptions of Chinese food

In Australia Elizabeth Chong is a household name. She's a celebrity chef and has done more than anyone – except possibly her father – to popularise Chinese cuisine. In her cookery classes and then on TV she would share her family's stories as well as recipes, and won millions of fans, both among native-born Australians and newly arrived Asian immigrants. And yet Elizabeth nearly wasn't allowed in to Australia at all. Jo Fidgen hears her story.

Biden vows to defend Taiwan

Speaking in Japan, US President Joe Biden vowed to intervene militarily to protect the island if it is attacked by China. The White House insisted there had been no departure from a long-standing US policy in the region. Mr Biden also drew a parallel with Russia's invasion of Ukraine, prompting an angry rebuke from Beijing.

Also in the programme: the challenges the new Australian Prime Minister, Anthony Albanese, is facing in the international arena; and a court in Ukraine has sentenced a Russian soldier to life in prison for killing an unarmed civilian, in the first war crimes trial since the invasion.

A call for a Ukraine Marshall plan

War in Ukraine has prompted calls for a Marshall-style plan to help rebuild the country. The original plan helped countries with reconstruction after the devastation of World War Two. But with economic storms on the horizon for many developed nations, we ask Borge Brende, president of the World Economic Forum, who has proposed the idea, whether it is likely to succeed. And we get reaction to the proposal from Tymofiy Mylovanov, who is a former Ukrainian economy minister, and currently advises the Zelensky administration. Also in the programme, the bank HSBC has reportedly suspended Stuart Kirk, a leader in its responsible investing team, for accusing central bankers and others of exaggerating the financial risks of climate change. William Bryant of North Peak Advisory advises private equity and hedge funds on environmental, social and governance issues, and gives us his perspective. There are calls in Nepal for the government to lift a ban on women working as housemaids in Gulf countries. It was imposed in 2017, after complaints of sexual abuse and forced labour, but critics argue it has led to an increase of Nepalese women being trafficked through India to the Middle East, as the BBC's Anbarasan Ethirajan reports from Kathmandu. Plus, despite the animal's endangered status, with African elephant populations expanding in some countries, lobbying efforts are under way to restart the sale of elephant products, such as ivory, which was banned in 1989. Zimbabwe is leading the call, as the BBC's Shingai Nyoka explains from Harare.

Today's edition is presented by Will Bain and Mike Johnson, and produced by Ivana Davidovic and Sara Parry.

The Shocking White Hair

Why does human hair go grey and is it ever possible for it to go white overnight from shock? Hannah and Adam explore why hair goes grey, how much stressful life events and a lack of sleep can speed up the process. They hear from the pilot whose hair turned white after a flight where all 4 of his engines failed after flying through a volcanic ash cloud - was the shock responsible? They also uncover new research which has shown it's possible for greying hair to return to its natural colour and ask if this finding could be exploited to uncover a cosmetic way to reverse hair greying?

Russian diplomat defects

Boris Bondarev, a counsellor at Russia's mission to the United Nations in Geneva, said he'd never been more ashamed of Russia as when it sent its troops across the border. Speaking to the BBC, Mr Bondarev said he now feared for his safety.

Also in the programme: Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, the British-Iranian woman who was detained in Iran for six years, says she was forced to sign a false confession before her release earlier this year; and we'll hear from a former US Secretary of Defence under Donald Trump about his recollections of the last months of that administration.

The cost of rebuilding Ukraine

The President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, has called for a global joint effort to repair the damage inflicted by Russian forces in Ukraine. He claims it exceeds $500 billion, but other analysts think it will top a trillion dollars. A former Ukranian Finance Minister Natalie Jaresko, gives her view on the true cost.

Elsewhere, an entirely different summit is getting underway as African leaders discuss measures aimed at protecting the world's last remaining elephants.

Ukraine takes centre stage in Davos

In three months, conflict in Ukraine has destroyed parts of the country, hurt Russia's economy, and sent shockwaves across the globe. Countries are experiencing never-before-seen inflation, and a critical lack of supplies is forecast to worsen. Then there's the matter of who should pay for the colossal damage inflicted on towns and cities in Ukraine. At the World Economic Forum in Davos, world leaders are trying to solve the problem. A former Ukranian Finance Minister Natalie Jaresko, gives her view on the true cost.

Much of the world's focus is on the outcome of that summit, but there's another one happening in Tokyo which could set the course of Asian trade relations for years to come. The Quad countries - Australia, the US, Japan and India - are meeting to discuss matters like China, inflation in the south of the continent, and a new US-led Pacific trading agreement. Tanvi Madan. Director of the Indian Project at the Brookings Institute, takes us through what to expect.

ABC's senior business correspondent Peter Ryan is joined by Alison van Diggelen, Silicon Valley tech host, to talk about all the issues of the day.

Meanwhile, Germany is among the countries trying new solutions to help citizens come to terms with economic crises. We hear from the Eva Kreienkamp, the head of one of the country's biggest transport companies.

The other side of death row

It's 31 years since Christine Towery's brother Robert killed a man and 10 years since he died at the hands of the state of Arizona by lethal injection.

For two decades Christine had to live in the shadow of her brother's death sentence. Christine regularly travelled long distances to see her brother on death row but for all that time a pane of glass would prevent them from hugging or shaking hands. Only after he was dead was she be able to connect with him physically. Meanwhile her son had built a bond with his uncle, which was shattered by Robert's execution. Christine's confidence and faith was blown to pieces.

Through conversations with counsellors, campaigners and her children, Christine examines the impact her brother's crime, conviction and eventual execution has had on her and her family. How do you rebuild?

Is it time for the US to acknowledge the pain experienced by these 'other victims’? Christine recalls a touching connection she made with the family of her brother's victim.

And will botched executions and miscarriages be enough to persuade all States to abolish the death penalty or does the ‘eye for an eye’ principle still hold sway?

Helping teenagers become good mums

Being a teenage mum is not easy. But innovative projects around the world are trying to help.

We hear from Sierra Leone, where the 2 Young Lives project supports teenagers who've been rejected by their families for getting pregnant. They link them up with older women who step in to look after them.

Complications during pregnancy and childbirth are a leading cause of death for 15–19-year-old girls globally. But the mentors are making sure the young mums get the medical support they need.

After giving birth, the early years of motherhood can be problematic for teenagers too.

We also hear from Brazil, where a team of researchers and nurses is teaching young mothers the skills they need to form strong attachments to their children.

By getting their mothers to do things like read to their toddlers, the researchers say they can improve the children's future development and give them better life prospects.

Detecting earthquakes with seafloor internet cables

Scientists at the National Physical Laboratory have released research that utilises existing subsea telecommunications cables as environmental sensors, for example to detect earthquakes. These cables exist in many parts of the world already, so this finding has the potential to revolutionise seafloor earthquake monitoring. Research scientist Giuseppe Marra explains how it all works and Laura Kong, the director of the International Tsunami Information Centre, tells Gareth how this could improve tsunami warning systems.

Healthcare delivery drones in India
India’s first organised medical drone programme was recently completed in the state of Telangana. Over the course of the 45-day trial, drones delivered different medical supplies including vaccines.

Girls, beauty and advertising

More than ever girls are bombarded by images that have been curated, filtered and touched up. How can we help girls decode those images and understand that ideals of beauty are constructed by society and change across time and place?

Shelina Janmohamed is an author and advertising executive. Her latest book is designed to help girls aged eight and above build confidence in how they look and show them why what appears to be beautiful isn't as straight forward as it seems.

Shelina tells presenter Rabiya Limbada why her career in advertising led her to write this book and why helping girls become more savvy consumers is good for business. Rabiya also speaks to six girls - Hanaa, Haleemah, Helen, Hana, Sophia and Amatullah - about what they think beautiful is, their experience of filtered images and how confident they feel about how they look.

The museum of banned Russian art

In 1966, a Russian painter and archaeologist, Igor Savitsky, created a museum in the remote desert of Uzbekistan, where he stored tens of thousands of works of art that he had saved from Stalin's censors. The Savitsky museum, in Nukus, is now recognised as one of the greatest collections of Russian avant-garde art in the world. In 2016, Louise Hidalgo spoke to the son and grandson of one of the artists, Alexander Volkov, whose work Savitsky saved.

My life as a midwife on the frontline

Anna Kent was a 26-year-old nurse from the UK when she joined humanitarian aid organisation Médecins Sans Frontières. She has delivered babies in warzones, the aftermath of major disasters and in refugee camps - experiences which would profoundly change her and shape her own journey to motherhood. She tells Jo Fidgen about keeping mothers and babies safe in some of the most troubled places in the world.

Please be warned that this programme contains disturbing descriptions of baby loss. These are an important picture of what some pregnant women and medical practitioners have to face in difficult conditions but some listeners will find this distressing.

Anna has written a book about her experiences, Frontline Midwife.

Jong-So Lim is a 75-year-old grandmother from South Korea, but you wouldn't know it to look at her. She is also a prize-winning bodybuilder, adopting dramatic poses to show off her sculpted muscles. Jo Fidgen spoke to Jong-So and her granddaughter Heewon Seo in 2019.

When rape becomes a crime

Senegal in West Africa recently introduced much tougher sentences for rape. Until 2019 it was deemed a misdemeanour rather than a serious crime and anyone convicted was often released after a few years, or even a few months. Myriam Francois meets rape survivors and both female and male campaigners to see if the new law is changing the lives of women for the better. Myriam hears how the stigma around rape has in the past prevented many women from coming forward to report sexual violence and how the police are opening new facilities to support women. She visits the country’s first Senegalese run hostel for victims of domestic violence. And she meets the pop star who caused a storm when she revealed her own experience of sexual assault.

Is inflation out of control?

The Covid-19 pandemic forced countries all over the world to close entire industries and force the majority of people to stay in their own homes where possible, only leaving for the bare essentials.

Following the arrival of a vaccine economies began to open back up, however, restarting the behemoth-like supply chains was not as simple as first hoped and issues began to occur resulting in empty shelves and price-gouging on certain products. Experts believed it was all par for the course and was merely a transitory period whilst global supply chains regained their flow. Then Russia invaded Ukraine. Then China locked down Shanghai, the world's largest shipping port. Tanya Beckett takes a closer look at how these two developments have changed the outlook on global inflation.

Insulin: The discovery that transformed diabetic care

The story of the discovery and development of insulin is a tale full of twists and turns, Nobel prizes and fierce rivalries. Scientists in the late 19th Century established the connection between the pancreas and diabetes, isolated the hormone insulin, and even patented the extract that lowered blood sugar. But it was not until a Canadian team published results in 1922 of their attempts to inject insulin into a patient that diabetes was transformed from a fatal condition to a manageable one.

Bridget Kendall is joined by science historian Dr Alison Li, who has studied the life of one of insulin's early pioneers in her book J.B. Collip and the development of medical research in Canada; Dr Viktor Joergens, a retired diabetologist who for more than two decades was the executive director of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes. He is also the co-author of Unveiling Diabetes: Milestones in Diabetology; and Dr Kersten Hall, visiting fellow in the Department of History and Philosophy of Science at the University of Leeds, and the author of Insulin - The Crooked Timber: A History From Thick Brown Muck to Wall Street Gold.

Batonga! How a made-up word guided Angélique Kidjo’s life

When singer Angélique Kidjo was bullied as a schoolgirl in Benin, West Africa, she made up a word - Batonga! It meant “Leave me alone, I'll do what I want.” She's carried that spirit forward into a singing career that's seen her win five Grammy awards, break new musical ground in her own unique mix of European and African styles, and become an activist for the rights of women and girls. Angélique tells Jo Fidgen about growing up in a creative family in Benin; her flight from the communist dictatorship there in the 1980s, and how the ideas Batonga! expresses became the foundation for her activism.

More information about Angélique Kidjo's upcoming tour of Europe and the UK can be found here: http://www.kidjo.com/tourdates

He also talks to NASA's Michael Way about how the planet Venus might have acquired its hellish super-greenhouse atmosphere, and how the same thing could happen to planet Earth.

There’s intriguing research from geologist John Tarduno of the University of Rochester that hints of a link between the ups and downs of the Earth’s magnetic field and the evolutionary history of animals.

Fraser Lott of the UK's Hadley Centre explains his ideas for calculating an individual person's responsibility for climate change-driven extreme weather events.

The US Secretary of State Antony Blinken has warned that China is the greatest challenge to the international order, even despite the immediate threat posed by Russia.

Elsewhere, Russia's central bank cuts interest rates - we ask what impact it could have on the cost of living.

After ISIS: Reviving the Jewish history of Mosul

When ISIS swept into Mosul in June 2014, the organisation immediately began a campaign to wipe out the most important part of the northern Iraqi city’s unique heritage - its a multi-sectarian culture. Mosul was home to ancient and modern Christian communities, Yazidis, Shia and Sunni Muslims, and at one time, Jews.

Throughout the period of ISIS occupation Omar Mohammad, a history lecturer at Mosul University, risked his life daily to get news of the city out to the world via the internet. His Mosul Eye blog became essential reading. Now living in exile in Europe, Omar de Mosul, as he is known, is reconstructing the history ISIS tried and failed to wipe out, including the history of the city’s Jewish community.

Presenter Michael Goldfarb spends time with Omar as he collects oral histories from the remaining Jews who were born and grew up in the city. Most Jews left the city in the early 1950s in the upheaval following the establishment of Israel. He also speaks with Rabbi Carlos Huerta, retired US army chaplain, who spent the first year after the US overthrew Saddam Hussein in Mosul with the 101st Airborne. He had no idea about the rich Jewish history of the place and spent much of his time investigating it.

How do we stop high inflation?

Business leaders meeting this week at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, have warned that high levels of inflation are likely to cause a global recession, or worse. Financier George Soros told the annual gathering that ongoing coronavirus lockdowns in China mean “global inflation is liable to turn into global depression”. Meanwhile the head of the World Bank, David Malpass, told a business event in the US that given the rising cost of energy, food and fertiliser prompted by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, it’s now difficult to “see how we avoid a recession”. Government and central bank spending aimed at cushioning the economic shock of the pandemic is also being blamed for the rising cost of goods and services. So, why have authorities so far failed to get rising inflation under control? If increased spending is contributing to prices going up, what can officials do to cushion the economic impact on the poorest without making things worse? And is another recession likely and perhaps even necessary?

As BBC Ukrainian reporter Roman Lebed was about to do a piece to camera, a cat walked into the shot. Roman burst out laughing – for the first time in months. The cat had burnt whiskers and wanted to become his friend. Roman says he’s seen many cats and dogs, often abandoned, in the areas he’s been reporting from.

Anger mounts at police response to Uvalde school shooting

Police in Texas have revised key details about Tuesday's deadly school shooting as criticism mounts from parents over the initial response. The gunman roamed outside the Uvalde school for 12 minutes before entering unchallenged, police said on Thursday. That contradicted earlier statements which said the attacker had been confronted and shot at by an officer. We hear from a former Texas police chief.

Also on the programme, Russia appears to be making slow but significant progress in its war against Ukraine. And for the first time, the International Booker Prize has been awarded to a novel in Hindi. Geetanjali Shree and Daisy Rockwell talk about their novel Tomb Of Sand.

Italy's ENI sources gas from Algeria

The Italian energy giant ENI has signed a deal with Algeria's Sonatrach to buy more gas. The supplies, which will come under the Mediterranean Sea, will likely reduce Italy's reliance on Russian gas, amid the conflict in Ukraine. James Waddell is the head of European gas at the analysts Energy Aspects in London, and discusses the energy relationship between Africa and the EU. This week, Turkey's central bank held interest rates at 14%, despite inflation running at around 70%. But the country's financial regulator says banks' profitability continues to rise, and we find out more from Murat Gulkan, chairman and chief executive of OMG Capital Advisors in Istanbul. Passengers at Amsterdam's Schiphol airport are facing ongoing chaos with many flights cancelled amid a shortage of security staff, as passengers return to flying in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. We get the background from Simon Calder, travel editor of The Independent. Plus, ahead of this weekend's Champions League football final between Liverpool and Real Madrid, we talk to John Burn-Murdoch of the Financial Times about how clubs' fortunes on the pitch are increasingly determined by the fortune they have in their bank accounts.

Today's edition is presented by Rob Young, and produced by Sarah Hawkins and Elizabeth Hotson.

Texas shooting: NRA convention

Following the school shooting in Uvalde in Texas, some scheduled speakers and performers have backed out of the convention of the National Rifle Association that starts today in Houston. We explain why the NRA --the most powerful organisation in the US lobbying for gun owner rights – is so influential and what is expected from the convention.

We also find out more about the criticism the police are facing over the response in the Uvalde school shooting.

We speak to young gun owners in America about why they have bought or were given firearms, and what sort of shooting training they have sought.

We get an update on the fighting in eastern Ukraine.

And we go back to Senegal to talk about the aftermath of the deaths of 11 babies in a fire at the maternity hospital.

Why can't I find gold in my back yard?

If you go outside with a spade and start digging, the chances are you won't find any gold. You might get lucky or just happen to live in a place where people have been finding gold for centuries. But for the most part, there'll be none. But why is that? Why do metals and minerals show up in some places and not others?

It's a question that's been bothering CrowdScience listener Martijn in the Netherlands, who has noticed the physical effects of mining in various different places while on his travels. It’s also a really important question for the future – specific elements are crucial to modern technology and renewable energy, and we need to find them somewhere.

Marnie Chesterton heads off on a hunt for answers, starting in a Scottish river where gold can sometimes be found. But why is it there, and how did it get there? Marnie goes on a journey through the inner workings of Earth's geology and the upheaval that happens beneath our feet to produce a deposit that’s worth mining.

On the way she discovers shimmering pools of lithium amongst the arid beauty of the Atacama Desert, meets researchers who are blasting rocks with lasers and melting them with a flame that’s hotter than the surface of the sun, and heads to the bottom of the ocean to encounter strange potato-sized lumps containing every single element on Earth.

And maybe, just maybe, she’ll also find gold.
