SAT 00:06 The Real Story (w3ct33ny)
China v 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?

Growth in US jobs in spite of recession fears

Mixed signals are coming from the US labour market. While employment figures grew more than expected in May, the tech sector has started to step on the brakes in fear of a recession. Tesla's CEO Elon Musk has warned that the electric carmaker needs to cut about 10% of its staff, saying he has a "super bad feeling" about the economy. We ask Chris Low, financial analyst at FHN Financial what this means for the economy.
It's been 100 days since the start of the war in Ukraine, and African nations among the countries that are suffering the most from food shortages and rising prices.

The BBC's correspondent in Nigeria Ishaq Khalid has been following the meeting.
Turkey has seen inflation rise to more than 73%, the fastest rate in 24 years. The decreasing value of the Turkish currency, the lira, and an unorthodox economic policy is fuelling price increases, according to experts.

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.

But the Batwa people have struggled ever since, as BBC Africa's Patience Atuhaire discovered when she went to report on their story.

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.

The rising cost of living: Fuel

The global economy is affecting millions of people while the Russian invasion of Ukraine is also directly impacting the supply of fuel and food.

Lebanon has been in an economic crisis for almost three years, and Beirut is still recovering from an explosion of stored chemicals in 2020, which killed over 200 people and displaced around 300,000 citizens. Three women talk about how fuel shortages are affecting lives when not everyone can afford to pay the increased cost of energy.

Host Karnie Sharp and the OS team also hear from two protestors in Sri Lanka about dealing with power cuts and if they believe the recent change of government will improve the situation there.

And, as the rising cost of living hits some of the most vulnerable particularly hard, two people in the UK share their experiences: writer and recovering alcoholic Sam Thomas and Jenny Holden. Jenny has a form of chronic arthritis as well as the long-term health condition fibromyalgia, which causes body pain that gets a lot worse in the cold and means paying higher fuel bills is becoming increasingly difficult.

Aged just 12 he lost his leg through cancer and he thought his chances of being a professional athlete had gone, until he met a fellow German amputee who just happened to be a Paralympic long jump world record holder.

Music is abstract, lyrics are concrete, with Elvis Costello, Marisa Monte, Jorge Drexler and Leo Sidran

Elvis Costello, Marisa Monte, Jorge Drexler and Leo Sidran discuss how to create emotional lyrics, shouting to make yourself heard, arriving at the idea of a song through its title, competing with the scale of music, and working in multiple languages.

Elvis Costello is a singer, songwriter, and producer who has sold millions of records both as a solo artist and with his amazing bands. His diverse genres and thoughtful lyrics have earned him various accolades including two Grammys, and an induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Marisa Monte is widely recognized as one of the greatest Brazilian singers and composers of all time. She completely shook up the role of women in the Brazilian music landscape, by becoming her own producer, business, and artistic director. She’s received four Latin Grammys so far, and is one-third of Brazilian supergroup Tribalistas.

Jorge Drexler is a musician, singer, and composer from Uruguay. He trained as a doctor, but soon realised he wanted to dedicate his life to music. He’s been releasing records for over 30 years, combining styles from across the Iberoamerican world.

Latin Grammy-winning producer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Leo Sidran's fascination with Spanish culture has led him to a celebrated career in music producing, composing and podcasting. Early in his career, he was “guided” on the drums by James Brown’s drummer Clyde Stubblefield.

Both novelists explore the peoples and culture of their respective countries in their work and encourage the next generation of writers.

Shehan Karunatilaka is a Sri Lankan writer best known for his cricketing novel Chinaman: The Legend of Pradeep Mathew, which won the 2012 Commonwealth Book Prize and was recently chosen by the BBC as one of its Big Jubilee Reads, celebrating 70 books from across the Commonwealth. He told us about the work of art that has inspired him - the 1985 track 'Russians' by UK popstar Sting, about the Cold War threat of nuclear attack, a song that continues to carry a very human message.

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.

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.

Jordan fights the Captagon trade

Pascale Harter introduces dispatches from reporters and correspondents in Jordan, the Cayman Islands, Nepal and Romania.

Across the Middle East the illegal trade in Captagon – a synthetic stimulant used by some of the militias fighting in Syria’s civil war – has snaked across borders. On Jordan’s northern frontier the army now says it will shoot to kill drug smugglers, and dozens of alleged traffickers have died this year. Amman’s private clinics are now treating addicts – not just Jordanians, but also patients from a number of Gulf states. Yolande Knell met soldiers and doctors trying to limit the damage.

The Cayman Islands are a byword for luxury living – the name alone conjures up images of sandy beaches, glittering condominiums, discreet banks and low taxation. But not everyone on the islands is rich, and the spiralling cost of living is leaving lower earners desperately squeezed. James Innes Smith talked to migrant workers at both ends of the income scale.

The region of Upper Mustang in Nepal is a traveller’s dream – but it’s rugged going. Peter Morgan recently journeyed through its vast, windswept highlands, retracing the routes of historical caravans which once traded gold, salt and precious stones between India and China. He found extraordinary landscapes and perfectly-preserved traditional villages – but very few local young people, as they’ve flocked to live in towns, or even abroad. Could new ideas to lure tourists back to the area offer them more opportunities at home?

And Tessa Dunlop revisits the Romanian town of Siret, to meet up again with old friends who she once helped – and who are now helping others. They survived childhoods in Romania’s notorious Communist-era orphanages, and still bear the marks of the neglect and abuse they suffered there. Now they are energetic, public-spirited adults, passionately involved in hosting and fundraising for some of the Ukrainian refugees now living in Romania.

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.

Mateo the memory keeper

Mateo Sobode Chiqueno is from Paraguay's indigenous Ayoreo people. Hunter-gatherers who have roamed the forests of Paraguay for many centuries, the Ayoreo were first targeted by Catholic, and then Evangelical missionaries who forced them to move into settlements. Mateo himself was orphaned at just 13, shortly after his family were taken out of the forest. Life in the missionary settlements was hard, but Mateo never gave up on his Ayoreo connections, for which he was eventually cast out by the priests. But he'd already seen how the missionaries used tape recorders to document their work, and realised he could do the same: for 40 years he's been recording Ayoreo songs, language, stories and rituals on cassettes. “In the forest there was everything,” he remembers sadly: the Ayoreo now face an onslaught of deforestation, but Mateo's cassettes are seen as a vital link to a threatened culture.

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.

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.

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.

Is destroying the planet a vote winner?

Long term climate policy has long been at odds with short-term politics. As numerous countries head to the polls this year, we visit Brazil, Australia and the United States and see how climate policy is being used as a political tool to divide voters.

During recent the elections in Australia – a country with some of the world’s highest emissions per capita – experts believe that experiencing the effects of climate change first hand brought the need for action up the agenda, leading to the unseating of the climate sceptic Liberal National Coalition. We hear from a follower of Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro, who believes that the country’s own deforestation figures are fake. Meanwhile, in the US, we look at how the Republican party’s position changed from the 2008 presidential elections from proposing climate policies to denying that man-made climate change is real.

Detectorists: Women finding treasure

Many of us as children dream of finding a treasure map and digging up gold and precious jewels. For some that longing never goes away. Kim Chakanetsa talks to two women from the UK and Canada who spend their free time using metal detectors to search for treasure.

In November 2021, a British nurse called Elizabeth Bailey discovered a tiny gold book while out with her metal detector. She first thought it was from a charm bracelet but, engraved with two figures thought to be the patron saints of childbirth, it's believed the charm could have been given to a wealthy pregnant woman between 1280 and 1410, when it was illegal for anyone besides the nobility to own gold.

Alison Walker uses her hobby of metal detecting to recover lost jewellery and keys for people around Ontario in Canada where she lives. Instead of taking a reward for finding precious belongings she asks that people 'pay-it-forward' to a breast cancer charity. She belongs to an international organisation called The Ring Finders and took up the pass-time 11 years ago after bidding for a metal detector in a charity auction.

The assassination of Bobby Kennedy

In June 1968, US presidential candidate Robert F Kennedy was assassinated shortly after addressing his supporters at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles. It was less than five years after his older brother, President John F Kennedy, had also been assassinated. Sirhan Sirhan was convicted of the crime, but many - including Kennedy's friend Paul Schrade - suspect a second gunman was involved. Schrade was shot himself that night and he told Rebecca Kesby about why he’s campaigning for the case to be reopened.

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.

Township lawyer v gold giants, part 1

Apartheid taught Charles to know his place, so how did he end up suing the gold industry? When Charles Abrahams told his teachers he was going to be a heart surgeon they laughed. This was Apartheid South Africa and kids like Charles had no business having such lofty ambitions. But Charles knew something those teachers didn't. He was destined for a bigger life and nobody was going to stand in his way.

Four day work week trial under way

The most extensive trial yet of a four day working week is now under way in the UK. More than 3,000 workers at 70 companies will work a day less without having to increase hours over the four remaining days. Edward Siegel is chief executive of Charity Bank, which is taking part in the trial, and tells us why he signed the organisation up. And we hear about some of the possible problems that might be encountered from Abigail Marks, professor of the future of work at Newcastle University. Also in the programme, negotiators from almost 200 countries are meeting in Bonn in Germany for talks to inspire fresh action on tackling climate change. Eddy Perez of campaign group Climate Action Network Canada is one of the attendees, and discusses the mood at the gathering.

S-X

In the Studio meets S-X, the Grammy-nominated British record producer and singer-songwriter, as he prepares to launch his career as a solo artist and release his debut album. As a sought-after record producer, S-X, born Sam Gumbley, has worked with the likes of Chance the Rapper, KSI, Skepta, Childish Gambino, Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj. Laura Sanders follows Sam as he works to transform himself from producer to front-man and show the world who S-X is. Sam demonstrates how he comes up with his tracks, from the first beat to the finishing touches - sometimes using just a podcast mic and laptop. Laura learns some of the tricks of the trade as she goes behind the scenes and watches Sam at work in his Wolverhampton studio as he pieces together his hotly anticipated studio album.

He discusses his bi-polar disorder and how he differentiates between his on-stage character S-X and his quieter self, Sam Gumbley. He reveals why he composes his songs on the voice note function on his mobile phone, what it's like to turn your hobby into a job and why that's not always a good thing. He explains why he rarely composes a track before he gets into studio and why waiting around for something to happen can be a bad idea. Plus, we hear tracks from his new album Who We Are, as they're being recorded.

The Curious Cases of Rutherford and Fry

The colour conundrum

The world is full of colour! But, listener Maya Crocombe wonders ‘how do we see colour and why are some people colour blind?’

Dr Rutherford and professor Fry set out to understand how special light-sensitive cells in our eyes start the process of colour perception, why people sometimes have very different experiences of colour and whether, in the end, colour is really just ‘in our heads’.

Dr Gabriele Jordan from Newcastle University explains why lots of men struggle to discriminate between certain colours and why there were lots of complaints from colour-blind viewers when Wales played Ireland at rugby.

Professor Anya Hurlbert, also from Newcastle University, tackles the most divisive of internet images: The Dress! Did you see it as blue-black or yellow-gold? Anya explains why people see it so differently, and why our ability to compensate for available light is so useful.

Community Networks: Connecting the unconnected

Across the North American continent, there is a stark difference in the availability of internet to different communities. Tribal lands are typically remote, rural and rugged landscapes, and often have very patchy, or non-existent internet connectivity. Dr Traci Morris explains why such a digital divide exists and how tribes are working together, both within their communities and with each other, to create and gain access to communications networks.

Digital Deras connecting farmers in rural Pakistan
In rural Punjab in Pakistan, farmers and villagers gather in places called ‘deras’ to socialise, drink tea and coffee and discuss their farms. But one project has created a community network to transform one of these deras to have digital facilities – a ‘digital dera’. Farmers use this digital dera to access crucial weather forecasts and other information to help them manage their farms more efficiently.

Offline internet in Cuba
Cuba is one of the least digitally connected countries in the Western hemisphere. This is due to the US trade embargo but also poor internet infrastructure and a tight control of its own government on flow of information. Although accessing digital technologies is getting better, for ordinary Cubans going online is still a challenge. The internet connection is slow, unreliable and prohibitively expensive. To combat this, they have created an offline underground internet called ‘El Paquete Semanal’ or ‘Weekly Package’ – it is a one terabyte collection of eclectic material of movies, tv series, sport and music, while turning a blind eye to copyright. Reporter Snezana Curcic visited to learn more about this Cuban alternative to broadband internet.

Is a rare carbon sink under threat in the DRC?

Dense tropical rainforest in central Africa's Congo Basin is humid and rainy for much of the year. Underfoot lies one of the world’s biggest carbon sinks – muddy soil built up from layers of partly decomposed plant matter. Remote and uncultivated, the peatlands have survived for thousands of years, stretching over an area the size of England. Incredibly, the area contains 30 billion tonnes of carbon trapped underground, but this rare carbon store is now under threat as local authorities turn their attention to oil.

My mum 'blossomed' as she fought Nigeria’s fake drug barons

Chidiogo Akunyili-Parr watched her mother, Professor Dora Akunyili, famously take on Nigeria’s fake drug cartels despite threats and assassination attempts. Her mum's work as head of Nigeria's food and drug regulator NAFDAC was fuelled by personal tragedy; Dora's little sister had died after taking fake insulin. Her fight against this multi-million dollar criminal industry meant her family name was recognised throughout the country, Chidiogo reveals sometimes this was overwhelming, but it also brought a huge sense of pride and comfort. She's written a book about her mother called: I Am Because We Are: An African Mother's Fight for the Soul of a Nation.

Turkey seeks to unblock Ukrainian grain

Talks were held between Russia and Turkey on a UN plan to restart Ukrainian grain exports. Western countries have accused Russia of risking global famine by shutting Ukraine's Black Sea ports. Arnaud Petit is executive director of inter-governmental group the International Grains Council, and discusses the challenges involved in getting Ukraine's grain supplies moving again. Also in the programme, the UN's World Food Programme is working with the California ride-hailing app Uber to use its technology to help move emergency supplies of food and water within Ukraine. The BBC's Zoe Kleinman explains how the software might help lower the risk of delivery trucks becoming targets, by enabling supplies to be moved around in much smaller vehicles. Plans for compulsory quotas for women in senior positions have been agreed by the European Parliament and EU member states. A third of all directors in companies employing more than 250 people will need to be women within the next four years. We find out more from Lara Wolters, who is a Dutch socialist member of the European Parliament, and who also led negotiations on the change. Plus, the BBC's Vivienne Nunis reports on concerns around oil development in the Congo basin which may threaten peatland storing 30bn tonnes of Carbon Dioxide.

Evacuated to Russia

More than a million Ukrainian civilians from Mariupol and other war-ravaged towns in the east of the country have been transported over the border into the territory of their country’s enemy, Russia. The authorities there have dispersed them into a chain of “temporary accommodation centres” across Russia, some of them thousands of miles from Ukraine. Russia claims it’s rescued the refugees – and says some want to build new lives with Russian citizenship in places as far away as Vladivostok, on the Pacific Ocean. But many of the Ukrainians are trying to avoid or leave the accommodation centres, and get out of Russia – and they’re being helped by a network of volunteers inside and outside the country. Ukraine says many of the “evacuees” have been forcibly deported to Russia against their will – and they’re being subjected to a form of slavery in sealed camps. Tim Whewell talks to refugees in Russia – and others who’ve managed to leave the country – to try to find out what’s really going on.

The recipe translators

Many chefs reach global status, with international demand for their latest book. Spare a thought for the translators, tasked with making their recipes accessible across barriers of language, culture and cuisine.

Translating a recipe isn’t as simple as getting the dictionary out, you need to understand the different terminology and ingredients used in each country, whilst staying true to the original dish.

We speak to Rosa Llopis, a Spanish translator who specialises in gastronomy and has translated a number of cookbooks. Cristina Cigognini is an Italian translator who usually specialises in literary translation of novels, but brought her skills to two cook books published by the chef Yotam Ottolenghi. Nawal Nasrallah is an Iraqi living in the US who translates medieval Arabic food texts, bringing those historic recipes to new audiences.

The Committee Hearing into the storming of Capitol Hill by Trump supporters on January 6th is to reveal a report in a few hours. It's said to contain evidence proving this was part of a conspiracy directed from the top.

India's ruling BJP has suspended a leading party spokesperson over alleged blasphemous comments made about the Prophet Muhammad... But is this enough to dampen the angry response from neighbouring Pakistan and other Muslim countries?

How do you live to be 100?

There was a time when living to 100 seemed impossible, but not any longer.

Can the process of ageing be slowed or even reversed? Do those who have already lived to 100 hold the secrets that will help us all live longer?

While science tries to find the answers to living a long and healthy life, societies with ageing populations, such as Japan, are finding new ways to help their older population live active and connected lives.

On the Inquiry this week, Charmain Cozier asks, how do we live to 100?

The emerging market for energy storage

Oil and gas prices have risen sharply after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, and as a result many countries have signalled a move towards more renewable energy. One of the challenges for the future will be how to store energy produced by wind and solar power so it can be used at the right times. Professor Seamus Garvey and a team at the University of Nottingham tell us about their prototype machine which uses compressed air and heated gravel to tackle this problem. We also hear from Professor Mara Prentiss of the University of Harvard on the science behind these new ideas, and Heymi Bahar of the International Energy Agency to give an overview of this sector at the moment.

How Sri Lanka's president survived a suicide bombing

In 2006, Sri Lanka’s current president, Gotabaya Rajapaksa, came within metres of death when he was targeted in a suicide bomb attack in Colombo. The attack was orchestrated by the Tamil Tigers during what was supposed to be a ceasefire in Sri Lanka’s long-standing civil war. Matt Pintus has been speaking to former Sri Lankan foreign minister, Pali Palihakkara, who was injured in the blast.

The Popol Vuh: Central American epic that survived Spanish conquest

Mythological sagas are often fantastical and push the imagination to the limit but the Popol Vuh, which originates in what is Guatemala today, has a gallery of extraordinary characters both good and bad. They get involved in a series of mind-boggling battles and challenges and this eventually leads to the creation of the human race. The Maya K’iche’ story of the Popol Vuh has come down to us in an 18th-Century transcription and Spanish translation by a priest called Francisco Ximenez, and as with many ancient stories, there are tantalising questions about the history of the manuscript and the origins of the tale itself.

Rajan Datar traces the meanings and significance of the Popol Vuh with the help of Frauke Sachse who is director of Pre-Columbian Studies at the Dumbarton Oaks Research Library and Collection in Washington DC; Iyaxel Cojti Ren, professor at the University of Texas; Allen Christenson who is professor at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah as well as an ethnographer and author of a new translation and critical edition of the Popol Vuh.
The reader is Florencia Cordeu.

Diving into the world's largest iceberg

In 2000, Jill Heinerth was already a renowned diver, known for her exploits mapping vast underground cave networks in Florida. Filming for a National Geographic documentary brought a new and unprecedented challenge; a vast iceberg known as B-15 had broken away from an ice shelf in Antarctica, providing a unique chance to explore its networks of underground caves. Braving sub zero temperatures and the treachery of constantly shifting ice, Jill became the first person to ever enter one of these caves - a historic milestone in diving. She tells her story to Emily Finch.

Howie Truong was fleeing Vietnam in the 1970s with his wife and baby son Kai, when pirates intercepted their boat and threw Howie into the sea. Not only did Howie have to swim for his life, but he had no idea if he would ever see his wife and son again. Fast forward over 30 years and there was an extraordinary reunion between father and son. Neal Razzell spoke to Howie and Kai in 2019.

Emmanuel Tuloe was working as a motorcycle taxi driver in Liberia when he discovered a blue plastic bag by the side of the road. Inside was $50,000, more than a lifetime's earnings for a driver like him. Emmanuel was faced with a choice, take the money and run, or try and track down the original owner and give it back.

UN warns over food insecurity

The UN's Food and Agriculture Organization has warned of growing global food insecurity. We hear why Russia's invasion of Ukraine could cause the global food import bill to rise to a record $1.8tn this year from Upali Wickramasinghe, senior economist at the FAO. And we find out about the challenges faced by people in Uganda with food prices from Nebert Rugadya, who is a business reporter in Kampala. Also in the programme, the BBC's Mariko Oi reports from Tokyo on why inflation in Japan is significantly lower than in many other parts of the world. There's been an overhaul of drugs laws in Thailand, where it's now legal to cultivate marijuana, and some consumption of it is now also allowed. The BBC's Jonathan Head has been to visit some farms in the north of the country, where cannabis plants are being handed out to farmers. Plus, energy price rises as a result of the conflict in Ukraine have focused attention on the prospects for more renewable energy. But one challenge is how to store solar and wind power so that it can be used when the sun isn't shining or the wind isn't blowing, and the BBC's Hannah Bewley explores a range of promising new technologies aimed at tackling the issue.

Today's edition is presented by Rob Young, and produced by George Thomas, Elizabeth Hotson and Sara Parry.

Body scan reveals HIV's hideouts

Researchers have developed a medical imaging technique which reveals where in the body HIV lies hidden, even when people have their infection well controlled by antiviral drugs. The team at the University of California, San Francisco hope this will lead to better treatments and even cures for HIV. As Timothy Henrich told us, they are also going to use the technique to investigate the notion that Long Covid is caused by the coronavirus persisting deep in the body's tissues.

Also in the programme, Roland Pease reports from the vast particle accelerator in Switzerland where the famous Higgs particle was discovered ten years ago. The scientists there are preparing to begin experiments with an upgraded Large Hadron Collider to learn more about the particle and the fundamental nature of the Universe.

Roland also talks to Frank Close, physicist and author of 'Elusive' - a new biography of Peter Higgs, a scientist as elusive as the particle named after him.

Finally an international team of archaeologists have revised the ancient history of the chicken, with a new programme of radiocarbon dating and analysis of buried bird bones. Humanity's relationship with the bird began much more recently than some researchers have suggested. Naomi Sykes of Exeter University and Greger Larson of Oxford University tell Roland when, where and how the domestication began and how the birds spread from Southeast Asia to the rest of the world.

The rocky road ahead for Boris Johnson

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson this week narrowly survived a confidence vote within his own party, but more than 40% of Conservative Members of Parliament thought he should go. His premiership has come under pressure after investigations into parties in Downing Street during pandemic lockdowns concluded he broke the rules he introduced. His government was elected in December 2019 with a large mandate to “get Brexit done” and his supporters insist that only he can hold the party together and deliver victory in the next election. But given the large number of Tory MPs who now think he’s an electoral liability rather than an asset, will Mr Johnson be able to survive and govern? And what will Boris Johnson staying on in Number 10 mean for the UK and its place in the world?

Is China’s population falling?

The numbers of people living in the most populated country in the world is expected to start falling this year, for the first time since the great famine more than six decades ago. There's concern about what that means for the global economy, but what do people in China think? BBC Chinese editor Howard Zhang explains why the 3-child policy hasn’t worked.

Carnage at the Capitol

As the US Congress hears new testimony on the January 6th storming of the Capitol, we ask how Republicans feel about the hearings and the charge that Donald Trump incited the mob.

Also in the programme: the hard left promises to fight back in Sunday's parliamentary elections in France; and does farming as we know it have to end if we are to save the planet and feed the world? We hear a radical agenda from an environmental activist.

Japan reopens to tourists

As coronavirus eases, Japan is opening up to tourists, but with strict rules in place. They will have to be part of a package tour, and must wear face coverings in all public places. Yukari Sakamoto takes tourists on tours of food markets in Tokyo, and brings us her perspective on the latest move. And we hear about the economic impact a lack of tourists has had on Japan, from the BBC's Mariko Oi. Also in the programme, Saudi Arabia has introduced a lottery system for westerners hoping to undertake their Hajj pilgrimage this year. That has led to complaints from people who had already booked flights and hotels, and now fear they'll be denied permission to visit Mecca. We find out more from Sean McLoughlin, who is Professor of the Anthropology of Islam at the University of Leeds, and specialises in the industry surrounding the Hajj. The UK Competition and Markets Authority is to investigate Google and Apple for a possible duopoly in their Chrome and Safari web browsers on mobile devices. Andrew Griffin is technology editor of the Independent news website, and discusses the implications. Plus, the BBC's Elizabeth Hotson pays a visit to the UK's Electromagnetic Field event, a four-day jamboree of original thinking, including computer coding sessions and a rocket building workshop.

Today's edition is presented by Rob Young, and produced by Nisha Patel, George Thomas and Elizabeth Hotson.

US Capitol riot hearing

A congressional inquiry into last year's riot at the Capitol building in Washington has accused Donald Trump of mounting "an attempted coup" to stay in power - even though he'd lost the presidential election. Mr Trump has described the process as a hoax. We hear from a journalist who was in the Capitol building during the riot.

We speak to our colleagues who are monitoring media around the world about the reaction in Russia and Morocco to the death sentences handed to three men by a proxy Russian court.

Our Climate Editor Justin Rowlatt joins us to explain what’s been happening in this week’s climate conference in Germany, and to answer some audience questions about the progress on the pledges made at the UN Climate Summit seven months ago.

Ukraine: Mariupol cholera fears

Ukrainian officials are warning of the risks of an epidemic in the Russian occupied port of Mariupol because of the poor humanitarian conditions there. The city's mayor -- who's now in Ukrainian controlled territory -- said there were already cases of cholera, dysentery and other infectious diseases. We hear more from our correspondent in the capital Kyiv.

Human v Machine

Humans can walk for miles, solve problems and form complex relationships using the energy provided by daily meals. That is a lot of output for a fairly modest input. Listener Charlotte from the UK wants to know: how efficient are humans? How do they compare to cars, other animals and even to each other?

Presenter Marnie Chesterton pits her energetic self against everything from cars to rabbits to find out how she shapes up.

Marnie also explores whether humans are born equal when it comes to fuel efficiency. Does the energy from one banana get converted into the same amount of movement from person to person? Marnie gets on a treadmill to find out how efficient she really is. With contributors from Herman Pontzer, Duke University, Rhona Pearce, Loughborough University and Christian Gammelgaard Olesen from Wolturnus wheelchair manufacturing company.
