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?

A massacre divides America

Protests have been held in Texas after another deadly shooting claimed the lives of more than 20 pupils and teachers at an elementary school in Uvalde. Across the state, in Houston, the NRA - America's largest pro-gun group - is holding its annual meeting. Our first guest on the programme, NPR journalist Andy Uhler, joins us from Texas where divisions appear to be widening. We're also joined by author and expert on Hong Kong affairs Rachel Cartland.

After years of seemingly unstoppable growth, there's a slowdown in hiring across the board in America's tech industry. One former employee of Google and Twitter, investor Alex Roetter, tells us it's probably not a sign of worse to come.

The World Economic Forum has drawn to a close in Davos, with Ukraine high on the agenda. One business owner who's seeking shelter in Kyiv says the conflict has transformed the world.

We also hear about the Chinese shopping mall that's bringing the outdoor indoors, as business owners in Beijing gear up to welcome back shoppers. Architect Xiaoguang Liu tells us how it could fit in a post-pandemic China.

Why battery-powered rickshaws are taking over in Bangladesh
Dhaka's notorious traffic jams are very polluting, as well as frustrating and noisy. Now there's a sustainable DIY solution to get around town: battery-powered rickshaws. But as BBC Bangla's Shahnewaj Rocky tells us, there are risks involved.

LGBTQ+ rights in Qatar
With just months to go before the Fifa World Cup 2022, the authorities in Qatar have assured LGBTQ+ visitors that they will be welcome. But the reality for LGBTQ+ people living in Qatar is very different, as BBC Arabic's Julien Hajj has been finding out.

Ukraine’s lost animals
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.

India’s alt-right 'trads'

A new extremist Hindu movement made up mostly of young men is emerging in India. They call themselves “trads” – short for traditionalists - and they mimic the tricks and techniques used by the American alt-right.
This fringe movement came to prominence after some of its proponents created Bulli Bai, an app that pretended to auction off prominent Muslim women - making them the targets of abuse and harassment.
Trads love memes and loathe mainstream Hindu nationalist parties, even the ruling BJP. They see the party and Prime Minister Narendra Modi as not nearly as aggressive enough in advancing Hindu interests.
So who are the trads and what do they want? Reha Kansara investigates, speaking to experts and women who’ve been targeted by trads. And she talks to a 16-year-old trad who’s obsessed with fascist ideas and calls for Indian democracy to be replaced by a Hindu monarchy.

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.

The rising cost of living: Food

The head of the World Bank recently warned that the Russian invasion of Ukraine could cause a global recession. There are additional reasons for the global economic crisis of course. We are now more than two years into a pandemic, and every country has its own political situation which may, or may not, contribute to the problem.

People from countries including Afghanistan, Lebanon, Indonesia and Turkey share their stories with host James Reynolds about rising prices, as well as shortages of food and medicine.

We also hear from three restaurant owners in Canada, Scotland and Kenya about the changes they are making to ensure that they can stay in business. For Dale in Canada, it’s the rising cost of vegetable oil that is causing problems and he is making tasty meals with cheaper cuts of meat. Lynn, who manages a vegan restaurant in Glasgow, Scotland, is focusing on being sustainable and creative.

When the European Cup was stolen

As Liverpool prepare to face Real Madrid in the Champions League final in Paris, we head back 40 years to the 1982 competition. Aston Villa ruled Europe that year, and on their return to Birmingham went on a tour to show fans the trophy. That's where the trouble started. Shari Vahl tells Caroline Barker about how the European Cup was stolen... and retrieved!

Ahead of the Championship Play-off final at Wembley, we hear from footballer Dominic Ball. Playing in the Premier League is the ultimate goal for most footballers, one that drives them from an early age. In that regard Dominic Ball is not that unusual, nor any of his five close friends, all of whom started their footballing journeys together. Dom has got closer than most, for the past three years he's played for Queen's Park Rangers in the Championship, and his goal is still in reach, but what about his friends? Dominic has written "From Winning Teams to Broken Dreams" a book which not only tells that story, but is a guide to those who want to follow the same dream, and what challenges and pitfalls lie in await.

Sunday sees the 106th running of the Indianapolis 500 with 33 drivers, 200 oval shaped laps and 500 hundred miles. One woman who knows exactly what it requires to take on the challenge of Indianapolis Motor Speedway is Sarah Fisher. Sarah is not only the fastest woman in Indy 500 history, she is a former team owner and this year will be back on the track as the pace car driver.

The Royal diplomat

After 70 years on the throne, Queen Elizabeth II is the world’s most high-profile global figure and a unique exemplar of diplomacy and soft power. Much of her role takes place behind the scenes. The BBC’s Emma Barnett speaks to those who have seen her in operation and worked with her on the thorniest global issues. Starting at the Queen’s home in Windsor Castle, Emma speaks to friends and insiders – including former prime ministers and the grandson of a US president.

She came to the throne in 1952 at a time of crisis and as the British Empire disintegrated in the aftermath of World War Two. The Queen’s role as constitutional monarch and head of the Commonwealth placed her at the heart of global crises. We recall how she visited Ghana, Zambia and South Africa as a diplomatic envoy, helping to mediate in the racial politics of post-colonial Africa.

From her first state visit to the US in 1957 to repair the transatlantic relationship after the Suez crisis, to the historic 2011 visit to Ireland, we show how reconciliation has been a major theme of the Queen’s reign. Guests include former UK Prime Minister David Cameron, former Commonwealth Secretary General Chief Emeka Anyaoku, professor David Eisenhower, the former Mayor of Accra Nat Nunoo Amarteifio and the veteran US diplomat James Baker.

Ukraine faces retreat from eastern town

Ukrainian officials say their forces may need to retreat from the last territory they hold in the Luhansk region, to avoid becoming encircled by Russian forces. The governor, Serhiy Haidai, said Russian troops had now entered the city of Severodonetsk. We hear from an official in the defence ministry who insists the Ukrainian side is being pounded but they will resist as long as they can.

Also in the programme: the influence of the National Rifle Association in the United States; and the rising cost of living in New Zealand.

The Miracle of Istanbul

In May 2005, Liverpool came from 3-0 down at half-time to beat AC Milan in the Champions League final, in what became known as “The Miracle of Istanbul”. Dietmar Hamann helped turn the game around for Liverpool when he was substituted on for the second half. Ben Henderson spoke to him about his memories from the night, and what happened at half-time to inspire one of the most famous comebacks in Champions League history.

SAT 19:06 The Evidence (w3ct4287)
The Evidence

The nature of mental health

Claudia Hammond and her panel of experts address that widely-held view, even intuition, that plants and nature directly impact on our emotional wellbeing and mental health. They look at the evidence behind such beliefs, and as they reveal, proving this link scientifically, is fiendishly difficult.

The evidence base is growing (especially studies which show being in nature improves your mood) and there is much emerging research which gives tantalising glimpses into exactly which elements in nature could help to produce that green feel-good factor (and which elements can actually make us feel worse).

On stage, Tayshan Hayden-Smith, a 25-year-old semi-professional footballer, shares how he first put his hands in the soil after the Grenfell Tower fire in North Kensington in London five years ago, when 72 people lost their lives and left his community traumatised. Tayshan tells Claudia that nature saved him, and many others, as they planted seeds, reclaimed spaces and built new gardens in the aftermath of the tragedy. All children and young people, he says, should have access to the healing power of nature and he calls on the horticultural establishment to open its doors much wider to enable this to happen.

Beth Collier also believes that nature should be a meaningful part of everyday life for all. The connection with nature, she says, is fundamental to healing mental distress. A psychotherapist and ethnographer, Beth founded Wild in the City to encourage those who live in urban environments, especially people of colour, to re-onnect with nature.

Claudia’s other guests are Kathy Willis, former director of Science at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, now professor of Biodiversity at the University of Oxford and author of a soon-to-be-published book called Prescribing Nature and Birgitta Gatersleben, professor of environmental psychology at the University of Surrey and a leading researcher studying the relationship between the natural environment and human wellbeing.

Eyal El Wahab, Ana Kravanja, Kees Berkers, and Bex Burch discuss being in love with an instrument, not really knowing what you’re doing, moving sounds through your body, and using instruments made out of pumpkins.

Eyal El Wahab is a Yemeni-Israeli musician who leads the four-piece folk jazz group El Khat, based in Tel Aviv and featuring musicians from Iraq, Poland, and Morocco.

Slovenian musician Ana Kravanja plays on traditional, classic, and self-made instruments. She is one third of Slovenian experimental folk band Širom, a band who play 12 instruments between them, and also works with 10-piece band Olfamoštvo.

Dutch percussionist Kees Berkers created the band YĪN YĪN with Yves Lennertz back in 2017. Their music is greatly inspired by south-east Asian psych-pop, funk and disco grooves.

Is comedy a risky business?

In the last few months two renowned comedians have experienced violence on stage. Chris Rock was slapped during the Oscar’s ceremony and Dave Chapelle was attacked during one of his shows by a member of the public. In this week’s The Cultural Frontline we explore the risks and challenges of performing comedy today.

Indonesian comedian Sakdiyah Ma’ruf and US comic Gastor Almonte discuss the current situation for comedians and what can and cannot be said on stage.

Ukrainian comedian Anna Kochegura lives in Kyiv and has been performing stand-up for the past five years. Like many comedians, she bases her work on her daily life. However since the Russian invasion in February, her daily life has turned 180 degrees on its head. She tells us about the role of comedy during a time of war.

Sharul Channa is a rare thing in Singapore – a full time female comedian. Despite opposition she’s now a popular comic, determined to bring female topics to the stage and prove that women can be laugh out loud funny.

Heat death by volcano and other stories

This week Science in Action comes from a vast gathering of earth scientists in Vienna, at the general assembly of the European Geosciences Union.

Roland Pease hears the latest insights into the cataclysmic eruption of Hunga Tonga in the Pacific ocean from volcanologist Shane Cronin of the University of Auckland. 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.

And ...

On Crowd Science, 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.

Monkeypox in central Africa

Monkeypox is spreading in more than 20 countries where previously it has not been seen, but BBC Health reporter Smitha Mundasad explains that this is not a new disease.

Presenter Claudia Hammond hears of an outbreak of a more serious strain in an area of the Democratic Republic of Congo that has no experience of Monkeypox. Professor Wim van Damme got in touch about his research trip to Maniema, a rural DRC province with more than 500 cases and 50 deaths. Plus, professor of virology Penny Moore discusses Covid variants in South Africa. Might waves of the virus be more predictable as surges appear to be settling into a six-monthly pattern? And a helpful new study on creams for childhood eczema.

Escape from Kherson

Pascale Harter introduces dispatches from Ukraine, Thailand, Sri Lanka and South Africa.

Reports have emerged of terrible atrocities committed against civilians in Russian-occupied areas of Ukraine. Living conditions in many cities are desperate. Some people have tried to escape, braving bullets and artillery fire in order to reach government-controlled territory. Caroline Davies met some of the volunteers driving into Russian-held territory to pick up those wanting to flee and taking them back out across enemy lines.

Might war in Ukraine mean famine for the rest of the world? Apart from the loss of Ukraine’s huge wheat exports, the knock-on effects of fuel and fertiliser price rises are hitting agriculture on other continents. Thailand is one of the world’s biggest rice exporters – and even there, farmers are feeling the pinch as their costs rise and their profits dwindle. Jonathan Head asked local farmers if there’s any future in the paddy-fields.

The current turmoil in Sri Lanka is not just economic – though it was sparked by a cost of living crisis and is hitting almost every Sri Lankan hard in the pocket. The country’s foreign currency reserves are critically low, meaning it’s run out of money to import necessary food, fuel and medicines. Many Sri Lankans are eating just one meal a day. Noisy mass protests and street violence have convulsed Colombo, and Rajini Vaidyanathan was right in the middle of it all.

If you go by its constitution, South Africa is a nation which doesn’t just recognise diversity, but positively values it. People of all races, religions, and ways of life are officially welcome. But as the 'rainbow nation' struggles to keep its people employed, there is growing discontent about foreigners. Around two-thirds of young Black South Africans don’t have a job – and some of them blame immigrants from other African countries. Shingai Nyoka considers what’s behind a recent wave of anti-immigrant violence.

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?

Feeding the imagination

What do writers eat to stoke their creative fires?

George Orwell is said to have had a penchant for plum pudding, while Agatha Christie was partial to sipping cream while at the typewriter.

Food is fuel for an author but also serves as inspiration; often finding its way on to the page.

In this episode of The Food Chain, Ruth Alexander speaks to novelists Avni Doshi and Abi Dare about their relationship with food and drink and how that influences their writing.

When trash met thrash: Paraguay's landfill musicians

The Recycled Orchestra run by Favio Chavez, began as a safe haven for kids living in the Cateura slum. It turned into a global phenomenon when it caught the attention of rock royalty and actual royalty around the world. Playing instruments made from the trash thrown away at the local landfill site, teenagers who once only knew the streets around their homes now travel across the planet performing with musical heavyweights like Megadeth, Metallica and Stevie Wonder. But despite their success, they still play the same instruments made of garbage and remain in the shanty town, putting everything they make back into their community.

Archive in this programme is from the documentary Landfill Harmonic.

This episode was first broadcast in August 2020.

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.

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.

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.

What can we do to stop rising levels of Methane?

Recent research shows that levels of Methane gas in the atmosphere are rising rapidly. It is over 80 times more potent as a greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide so poses a major threat to the world’s goal of limiting global warming to 1.5 C.
At COP26, over 100 countries signed a Global Methane Pledge to reduce man-made emissions by 2030 – experts say cutting methane emissions is ‘the most powerful lever we have for reducing warming... over the next 30 years’.
So what can be done to stop the levels rising further? We hear how farmers in Bangladesh, along with other parts of Asia, are using wetting and drying techniques in rice paddies to reduce emissions; how cows are being fed special dietary supplements with a surprising ingredient: seaweed, but why naturally occurring wetlands are a cause for concern.

Presenters Kate Lamble and Neal Razzell are joined by:

Can a book change a young woman’s life?

Can a book change a young woman’s life? Kim Chakanetsa talks to two women in the publishing world about the importance of writing stories that inspire and empower girls.

Nnedi Okorafor is an award-winning Nigerian-American writer of fantasy and science fiction for both children and adults. Her books have strong female leads and draw inspiration from her Nigerian roots. Nnedi has also written comics for Marvel: she was the first woman to write the character of T'challa, the Black Panther, and she wrote a series about his tech loving sister, Shuri. She is a recipient of the World Fantasy, Hugo and Nebula Awards.

Mel Mazman is the chief product officer at Rebel Girls, a franchise publishing books and digital content aimed at empowering young women. The company started in 2016, with a crowdfunding campaign for Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls, a book featuring the stories of 100 inspirational women. Since then, they sold 7.5 million books in over 100 countries. Mel shares her insights on how the publishing industry is changing to cater for the needs and interests of younger generations of readers.

Back then Gazprom was eager to be taken seriously abroad, and to sell more of its gas to Europe. Which it did. This year, war in Ukraine changed everything when Gazprom’s political master Vladimir Putin turned off the gas taps to Poland, Bulgaria and Finland.

Lesley investigates how Gazprom has changed over the past 20 years, what its reputation is as a company, and what its future might look like.

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.

India’s first all-women newsroom

Childhood friends Kavita Bundelkhandi and Meera Devi are two Dalit women defying caste hierarchy to run Khabar Lahariya, India’s first and only all-female newsroom. The team are mostly women from marginalised backgrounds, they’ve faced discrimination and even death threats, but have gone on to produce award-winning stories about illegal mining, jungle bandits and the daily lives of rural communities.

In 1977, journalists Pam Zekman and the now late Zay Smith wanted to expose the extraordinary level of corruption in Chicago, so they went undercover and opened a bar. There were photographers hiding in the roof, and staff who were better at taking notes than mixing drinks, but it all paid off. As a result of the undercover work there were several criminal indictments and new reforms were brought in to tackle corruption in Chicago. (This interview was first broadcast in 2018.)

EU leaders discuss Russian oil ban

Several European Union countries are holding out against a ban on importing Russian oil. EU leaders have been meeting in Brussels seeking a compromise, which may mean blocking imports by ship but continuing with pipeline imports. Dr Adi Imsirovic is an energy analyst who was once head of oil at Gazprom Marketing and Trading, which sold the state-owned Russian energy giant's products around the world. He tells us what he expects to see agreed in Brussels. And the BBC's Lesley Curwen examines the changing role of Gazprom in the global energy markets over the past 20 years. Also in the programme, authorities in Shanghai are to lift the city's two-month lockdown from Wednesday. Don Weinland covers Chinese business and finance for The Economist, and explains what everyday life is like in Shanghai right now. Plus, the fast fashion retailer Missguided is on the verge of collapse. Fashion business expert Maria Malone tells us what it says about the state of the global fast fashion industry.

Today's edition is presented by Mike Johnson, and produced by Sarah Hawkins and Gabriele Shaw.

The Curious Cases of Rutherford and Fry

The Turn of the Tide

Mathematician Hannah Fry and geneticist Adam Rutherford investigate your everyday science queries. Today, they get stuck into two questions about tides. Lynn Godson wants to know why isn’t high tide at the same time at all points around the coast? Whilst Tim Mosedale asks, could we ever harness tidal power commercially?
Did you think tides are caused by the pull of the Moon? And that they come in and out twice a day? Well, yes, that’s true but it turns out there’s so much more to it than that, especially here in the UK, which has the second largest tidal range in the world at the Severn Estuary near Bristol, coming in at an average of 15 metres (50ft in old money). But why should high and low tide times be so different even in places that are relatively close to each other?

The answer partly lies in something called bathymetry (which has more to do with baths than you might think – well basins at any rate). As for harnessing sea power, there are some ambitious projects currently in development and predictions that wave and tidal could make up as much as 15 percent of the UK’s energy needs in future. But how realistic is this and how do you ensure that your power generators can survive the rigours of the ocean – storms, saltwater and all those pesky barnacles?

To help answer these queries, Hannah and Adam are joined by Physicist and Oceanographer, Helen Czerski and Professor Deborah Greaves OBE, who heads up the COAST lab at the University of Plymouth which studies marine renewable energy technologies.

Guarding the art

Baltimore Museum of Art is hosting a bold and ground-breaking exhibition curated entirely by 17 members of the its security staff.

Broadcaster and art expert Alvin Hall goes behind the scenes to meet some of the guards working on the show, as they begin to install the pieces in the gallery.

It has been more than a year-long process, assisted by the museum's chief curator Asma Naeem and mentor Dr Lowery Stokes Sims. Their choices for the show are deeply personal and reflect not only their rich knowledge of art, bur their wide range of interests and concerns outside of museum security work, including poetry, opera, mythology, and social justice.

The guards also offer their perspectives and insights on the museum's collections, explain their relationship to the pieces they watch over 24 hours a day, and what they have learned through their daily interactions with visitors.

Paco Peña: Flamenco from our elders

Paco Peña, regarded as one of the world's foremost traditional flamenco players, is coming back to Sadler's Wells Theatre in London with Solera, his new flamenco show, devised in collaboration with long-time friend and theatre director Jude Kelly. Their work aims to showcase the raw talent of young artists, tempered by the understated authority of an older, wiser generation.

Solera, the title of this production, refers to the solera process of ageing liquids such as wine. Andalucía, in Southern Spain, where Paco was born, has for generations produced fine wines using a method that stacks oak barrels in several layers. Young wine enters the highest barrel and given time flows down, nurturing its best qualities, until what remains is a delicious wine that can only be achieved with age. The mature solera of the older generations enriches and refines the best qualities handed down to the young.

Flamenco is not a written tradition, but one handed down from one generation to the next, constantly striving to find different ways to express; the best of performances will incorporate part of what has been created before by the great practitioners of the past.

Safer cities for women

Street harassment and violence against women in public spaces is a global issue. According to one survey, 84% of women in cities around the world reported being harassed on the street before the age of 17; half of respondents said they had been groped or fondled.

It’s acknowledged that intimidating, violent behaviour from men needs to stop, but what can be done to improve the safety of women and girls in cities now?

We look at initiatives that allow women to tell authorities what changes to make to the fabric of their cities to make them feel safer, plus some new technologies that might help in an emergency.

Data-driven football

Data-Driven football
With the end of this year’s Premier League season and the Champion’s League final in the last two weekends, viewers around the world were cheering on their favourite teams. While the rules of football may not have changed much in recent years, there is one thing that has: the amount of data. Coaches and teams can now examine player performance and statistics in great detail. Has this transformed the way the game is played? Gareth chats to Ruben Saavedra, CEO of Metrica Sports, which uses software to analyse videos of football games, and we hear from John Muller, a sports journalist at The Athletic, and Jordi Mompart, Director of Research and Analytics at FC Barcelona.

The tech behind the ABBAtars
ABBA's show opened this week in London, using digitally created avatars of their younger selves. Ghislaine tells Gareth about the cutting-edge tech that makes this performance possible and where else it might be used in the future.

Cultural representation in video games
Video games are a booming industry that is making its way across the globe. But are different cultures and places actually represented in mainstream games? BBC Arabic reporter Hossam Fazulla chats to Gareth about Jordanian games company Tamatem, which localises games for Arab audiences. And we speak to game developer Dimas Novan from Mojiken Productions in Indonesia, about their upcoming title 'A Space for the Unbound' and making content rooted in local culture.


The programme is presented by Gareth Mitchell with expert commentary from Ghislaine Boddington.

Russia cuts gas supplies to more of Europe

The Russian energy giant, Gazprom, is to cut gas supplies to the Netherlands and Denmark. Both countries have refused to pay in roubles and it follows an earlier decision from the EU to block most Russian oil imports by the end of the year. The Dutch Prime Minister, Mark Rutte, is playing down the potential impact though. Elsewhere, consumer groups in 18 European countries back a report calling gaming loot boxes "exploitative."

Himalaya: The Human Story

High lives

Spanning five countries, the Himalaya is home to peoples who have adapted to living in the harshest of conditions. Journalist and broadcaster Ed Douglas, author of the first major history of the Himalaya has been visiting these remote communities for 30 years. Now they are opening up to him about the challenges of living on the roof of the world.

How I brought my jailer to justice

At the start of the Syrian uprising, the journalist and human rights activist Amer Matar was arrested. He was held at a notorious unit of Syria's intelligence directorate and interrogated by an officer called Anwar Raslan. Amer survived his time in prison and, years later, a series of extraordinary coincidences would bring the two men together again. This time their meeting took place in a German court, with Raslan in the dock and Amer fighting for justice. He tells his story to Emily Webb.

Mike Pelley is a scuba diver from California who also goes by the nickname Merman Mike. That’s because of the work he does searching for precious objects that have been lost underwater. He speaks to Saskia Edwards in a report that first aired in 2020.

DWS boss resigns amid greenwashing claims

DWS denies the claims, and we find out more from Steve Arons, who has been following the story for Bloomberg in Frankfurt. And we hear about wider concerns over the recent growth of ESG, or environmental, social and governance considerations in business, from Magdalene Senn of the non-governmental organisation Finance Wende in Berlin. Also in the programme, as tourists begin to return to Nepal, following the lifting of Covid-19 travel restrictions, the BBC's Anbarasan Ethirajan reports from the capital Kathmandu on challenges faced by the sector, after most employees left during the pandemic. Motorcycle taxis, or okada, are normally a common sight on the streets of Lagos, Nigeria's commercial hub. But they've been banned from today in large parts of the city, and Abisola Owolawi, who is a business correspondent at the Nigerian TV channel Arise News tells us what's behind the move. Plus the BBC's Elizabeth Hotson reports on the enduring popularity of the British drink, gin and tonic, and asks whether it can maintain its place in the British psyche in the face of the rising trend for vodka and tequila.

Ukraine: The disinformation war

Russia’s response to accusations of war crimes in Ukraine has been to blame the Ukrainians of bombing their own side. Some people in the UK have been sharing this version of the war on social media. Driven by a conviction that Western governments are responsible for many of the world’s ills, these academics, journalists and celebrities have shared misinformation in their attempts to raise questions about the official narrative of the war. Their detractors say they are useful to Vladimir Putin. They claim there’s a McCarthyist witch hunt against them. All wars are fought as much in the information space as on the battle field and Chloe Hadjimatheou looks at where the new red lines are being drawn in an age of disinformation.

Amber Heard 'heartbroken' by libel case defeat to Johnny Depp

The legal battle between Hollywood stars Jonny Depp and Amber Heard has ended with the court awarding $15m damages to Depp; Ms Heard said it had set back the clock to a time when a woman who spoke out could be publicly humiliated.

Throughout Britain people are preparing to celebrate 70 years of the reign of the Queen Elizabeth II - her platinum jubilee celebrations will last for the next 4 days.

And in Hong Kong legal action against the pro-democracy activists is underway again, we'll hear from a key member of the activist movement.

Why did China ban Spider-Man?

Ever since Hollywood entered the Chinese market in the early '90s, the importance of Chinese audiences was apparent. Over recent years the Chinese market has grown in significance to the point of deciding whether a film is ultimately successful or not. Given the countries importance to the overall profitability of Tinsel Town, it is of little surprise that their censors are able to increasingly demand changes to films that threaten the Chinese narrative. Despite this, the recent Sony/Marvel blockbuster Spider-Man did not appear to challenge Chinese values.

Tanya Beckett takes a closer at How China’s increasing influence is affecting the movie-making process in Hollywood.

Excluded from digital banking

With more and more of our financial lives moving online, we ask whether some people are getting left behind.

Claire Williamson investigates whether some older people, who struggle with rapidly changing technology or fear losing their money through scams, are being forgotten about, as banks close branches and move online?

Claire hears from people attending a digital skills training session organised by Age UK in East London and Carlos San Juan from Valencia in Spain tells her why he started a campaign for a more humane treatment of older people by Spanish banks.

Sarin attack in Syria

In 2013, more than a thousand people are thought to have died in a chemical weapons attack on a suburb of the Syrian capital Damascus called Ghouta. It was the single deadliest attack of the Syrian civil war and the UN later confirmed that the nerve agent Sarin had been used. Louise Hidalgo speaks to Angela Kane, the former UN High Representative for Disarmament Affairs. Her team of chemical weapons inspectors reached the site in Ghouta just days after the attack.

The Koryo Kingdom: Medieval dynasty that united Korea

Today Korea is divided between North and South, but the founding of the Koryo Kingdom in the 10th Century was the first time the peninsula was truly united and when a sense of nationhood emerged. The Koryo Kingdom is remembered for some of the finest cultural achievements in the country’s history; it developed the world’s first printing press – 200 years before the German inventor Johannes Gutenberg came up with his own version, and it is also a period marked by beautiful ceramics and art. But what is less well known is how progressive its politics and society were; promotion was based on merit, women were given greater rights, and monarchs ruled through co-operation. It was also a turbulent time with personal intrigue and back stabbing at court, and constant threats of foreign invasion.

Rajan Datar finds out more about the Koryo Kingdom. He is joined by Sang’ah Kim, the Korean Collections’ Curator at the British Museum in London; Dr Charlotte Horlyck, reader in Korean Art History at SOAS, University of London, who has written about the collecting of Koryo Art in the early 20th Century; Edward (Ned) Shultz, professor emeritus in Asian Studies at the University of Hawaii, and Dr Juhn Ahn, associate professor in Buddhism and Korean studies at the University of Michigan in the United States and author of Buddhas and Ancestors: Religion and Wealth in 14th Century Korea.

Why I travelled with my husband to end his life

In 2019 American writer Amy Bloom's husband Brian was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. Within 48 hours of the diagnosis he'd decided he did not want what he called "the long goodbye". Instead he asked Amy to accompany him to Dignitas in Switzerland so that he could end his life on his terms. Assisted suicide is not only illegal in many countries but it's also an incredibly divisive topic and Amy had to confront all of these issues along the way. She's written a book about her experience and about what would be her last journey with Brian. It's called In Love: A Memoir of Love and Loss.

If you need support relating to any of the issues we've covered in this interview, you can find more information on the BBC Action line website or at Befrienders.org.

UN warns African countries face an "unprecedented" food crisis

African nations usually import almost half of their grain from Ukraine and Russia, along with significant amounts of fertiliser and vegetable oils, but following the invasion of Ukraine, Russia has captured some of Ukraine's biggest seaports and is blocking Ukrainian shipments. We hear from the BBC's Mohammud Ali in the Kenyan capital Nairobi and Ollo Sib who works for the UN World Food Programme in Senegal's capital Dakar. Sri Lanka has been hit hard by the surge in global inflation and its reserves of foreign currencies - used to pay for imports - are dwindling. So to preserve its foreign exchange, Colombo has just increased import taxes on a wide range of goods. We get more details from Dimuthu Attanayake, a journalist in Sri Lanka's capital Colombo. The nations that make up the oil cartel Opec - along with Russia - have just said they'll increase the amount of oil they produce over the next couple of months. We hear more from Amena Bakr, chief Opec correspondent for Energy Intelligence. The UK is now in the midst of a four-day long weekend to mark Queen Elizabeth the Second's Platinum Jubilee, celebrating 70 years on the throne. For those wanting to throw a celebration fit for a queen, you might look for a literal royal stamp of approval - or royal warrant - that you can find on a very select number of products - the BBC's Victoria Craig brings us an extended report.

Thousands of people around the Commonwealth are also marking the Queen’s 70-year reign but there are some Commonwealth members considering removing the Queen as their head of State. We discuss those calls with commentators from Jamaica and Canada.

We reflect the conversations taking place about the libel case won by Johnny Depp against his ex-wife Amber Heard who said she was a victim of abuse. Some are asking where does the verdict leave the #MeToo movement while others highlight the social media campaign against Amber Heard during the trial.

And, we get the latest on how the Russian army is trying to break Ukraine’s defence in the eastern region of Donbass.

Should we worry about the latest Omicron subvariants?

Should we worry about the most recent Omicron subvariants, BA 4 and BA5? They are the subtypes of the Covid-19 virus now dominant in southern Africa and spreading elsewhere. New research suggests that they are better at evading our antibody defences than other forms of the virus. Columbia University virologist David Ho explains the findings and what they means for us.

Also, reducing air pollution makes agricultural crops grow better, how large wildfires warm the upper atmosphere, and the dolphins in the Red Sea which use secretions from corals and sponges as preventative medicines.

We look back at previous jubilees and ask how much interest there is in this one from a Commonwealth country that wants to break its links with the crown.

Also in the programme: A two-month extension to the ceasefire is now in effect in Yemen, but a human rights activist tells us the process is only just beginning; the UN accepts the Turkish government's request to change the international name of the country to Türkiye; we look at the impact of Russian disinformation on the course of the war in Ukraine.

Qawwali: Music of the soul

Raees Khan explores the history, influence and enduring legacy of Qawwali music, both within, as well as outside of the Islamic World.

From its earliest origins in the writings of Sufi Saints, to its spread throughout South Asia we look at how the mystical and devotional artform spread throughout the Indian Sub-continent and attracted millions to the religion of Islam.

A deeply personal journey, Raees reminisces about his first introduction to Qawwali as a young boy and how the captivating voice of one man, Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, changed him forever.

Along the way, we meet Tahir Qawaal, the lead vocalist in an all-Caucasian Qawwali group who spent years in Pakistan and India learning from the true masters. Tahseen Sakina explains how she feels she has been accepted as one of the only female qawaals and Abi Sampa, Rushil and Amrit Dhuffer, the members of The Orchestral Qawwali Project, tell us about introducing qawwali to a whole new audience.

China vs the West in the Pacific

China’s foreign minister Wang Yi this week held a meeting with 10 Pacific nations aiming to reach agreement on a region-wide trade and security pact. Consensus wasn’t reached but bilateral deals – like the one China’s already signed with Solomon Islands – are under discussion. The United States and regional allies, led by Australia, see the idea of greater security cooperation between China and Pacific island countries as a threat to Western security. Beijing says it’s offering help in the areas of policing, infrastructure, trade and resilience from disaster. Fiji’s Prime Minister, who's one of those who hosted Mr Wang this week, called on China to increase its efforts to tackle climate change, an existential threat to many of the nations meeting this week. So, what do Pacific states want from their partnerships with China and the West? And could the Pacific quickly become a new front line in growing tensions between East and West?

100 days of war in Ukraine

The war in Ukraine marks its 100th day today. President Volodymyr Zelensky has praised the Ukrainian resistance, which he says will win the war. Fighting continues in the key eastern city of Severodonetsk, which is now largely under the control of Russian troops. We have an extended interview with the new US ambassador to the country, Bridget Brink, about the course of the war and what more Washington needs to do to help.

Also in the programme: why so many police officers in Kenya are taking their own lives; and how one Australian grasshopper species has dispensed with the need for males.

The economics of the Jubilee

We broadcast live from the rooftop of the BBC to ask whether a four-day weekend be a help, or hindrance to the economy? We talk to Brand Finance's Chief Executive, David Haigh, over a very British cup of tea and ask him to go over the figures. And Jace Tyrrell, chief executive of the New West End Company tells us how the business partnership of 600 UK & international retailers, restaurateurs, hoteliers, galleries and property owners in London's West End, has recovered from the pandemic. Plus, the BBC's Victoria Craig report from a very British institution - the street party - and looks at the money generated for the local economy. Plus, Germany is extremely reliant on Russian gas and analysts predict the country’s income will contract if there is an imposed embargo on it - there is therefore pressure to transition to home-grown sustainable energy - we hear from Andreas Schierenbeck, founder of the green hydrogen energy company HH2E. And Malaysia has banned the export of chicken, in a bid to control prices at home. It's having a big impact on countries that rely on the imports, such as Singapore and we hear from the BBC's Monica Miller in Singapore about the rising price of the country's famous 'chicken and rice' dish.

100 days since Russia invaded Ukraine

President Zelensky has told his people "victory will be ours", as Ukraine marks 100 days since Russia began its full-scale invasion of the country. We'll reflect on the story of the war so far.

We'll discuss why US President Joe Biden has announced that he wants to ban military-style firearms, following the murder of 19 children and two teachers in Uvalde, Texas. We'll also hear from Americans who own assault weapons who tell us why they bought them and what they use them for.

We’ll hear the conversation of three people in the restaurant business in Nairobi, Glasgow and Saskatoon about how they’re dealing with the global rise in food prices and the cost of living crisis.

Cost of living: The restaurant business

We’ll hear the conversation of three people in the restaurant business in Nairobi, Glasgow and Saskatoon about how they’re dealing with the global rise in food prices and the cost of living crisis.

President Zelensky has told his people "victory will be ours", as Ukraine marks 100 days since Russia began its full-scale invasion of the country. We'll reflect on the story of the war so far.

We'll explain the viral video from India which shows rural women climbing down the wall of a well to get water. It's got people talking about water scarcity across the country.

Marriage and war

Natalya Moiseyeva is a Russian journalist working for BBC Monitoring, and her husband and colleague, Yuriy Martynenko, is Ukrainian. They have been evacuated from their home in Kyiv to Lviv. Natalya tells us about the challenges of family life during war, and how she’s given up trying to convince some friends in Russia about what’s really happening.

Changing attitudes in India
A recent survey of social attitudes in India showed that a large proportion of the population, both men and women, still believe that husbands have the right to beat their wives. Women's affairs editor Geeta Pandey talks us through the findings.

Why Germans are migrating to Paraguay
Thousands of German migrants have moved to Paraguay, some of them escaping Covid restrictions; others because they are uncomfortable with immigration itself in Germany. BBC Mundo's Mar Pichel travelled to Paraguay to explore the reasons behind this new wave.

Goodbye to South Korea's Blue House
The Blue House in Seoul has been the seat of power in South Korea for more than 70 years. But the new president, Yoon Suk-yeol, has moved his office to a Defence Ministry complex and opened the Blue House to the public. Julie Yoonnyung Lee of BBC Korean explains the reasons for this decision.

Uganda's Batwa people
Over 30 years ago, the Batwa people of Uganda were evicted from their ancestral forest home by the government. It was thought they might threaten the gorilla population, vital to Uganda's tourism industry. But the Batwa people have struggled ever since, as BBC Africa's Patience Atuhaire discovered when she went to report on their story.

Why do bright lights make me sneeze?

This week’s CrowdScience is dedicated to bodily fluids – and why humans spend so much time spraying them all over the place. From snot and vomit to sweat and sneezes, listeners have been positively drenching our inbox with queries. Now presenter Marnie Chesterton and a panel of unsqueamish expert guests prepare themselves to wade through…

One listener has found that as he ages, bright light seems to make him sneeze more and more – with his current record sitting at 14 sneezes in a row. He’d like to know if light has the same effect on other people and why?

Sticking with nasal fluids, another listener wants to know why she’s always reaching for a tissue to blow her endlessly dripping nose and yet her family seem to produce hardly any snot at all. Could it be because she moved from a hotter climate to a colder one?

CrowdScience reveals the answers to these and other sticky questions… if you can find the stomach to listen.
