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?

The slow death of Covid travel restrictions

The travel industry continues its path to normality with Japan reopening its doors to international travellers after two years and the US dropping Covid-19 test requirements for airline passengers. We hear more from Yukari Sakamoto, who takes tourists on tours of food markets in Tokyo.
Inflation in the US rose to 8.6% in May, the highest rate since 1981. Food and energy prices led the rally with double-digit rises, but increases continue to spread throughout the economy. We talk to a consumer and a business owner in different parts of the country about how they are being affected by soaring prices.
We hear from former US ambassador Norman Eisen about the congressional committee investigating the attacks on the US Capitol in 2021. It could lead to prosecutions and new laws to strengthen election security.
Plus, young people who've made a million before they were 30 explain how they did it as part of our Business Daily series Million By 30.
Sam Fenwick is joined along the programme by Maggie McGrath, editor of Forbes Women in New York, and Sinead Mangan, a broadcaster with ABC in Australia.

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.

Messages for those lost in Ukraine

As the battles continue, following the Russian forces’ attack on Ukraine, we share memories from a few of the thousands of people who have lost friends, family, and colleagues during the war. We have been receiving audio messages for people from all walks of life: a toymaker, a photographer, a city mayor, an engineer, soldiers and journalists.

They include one from Tatyana, whose younger brother joined the army to defend his country eight years ago. He died in Mariupol at the age of 34.
Gregory, a journalist, pays tribute to a much-loved colleague, Vera, who died in a missile attack on her apartment. He describes how he heard a report on the evening news of an explosion in which one person had been killed and the shock of discovering the following morning that his friend was the person who had died.

Some deaths have no direct connection to the fighting, but the war has affected people in other ways. Katya remembers her mother Zenaida, a coal mining engineer, who died through illness. She describes the emotional impact of not being able to attend her funeral.

Escaping persecution and finding the NBA

As the NBA finals continue we hear the remarkable story of three generations of the Grunfeld family, from their escape journey from Nazi persecution to Olympic glory and beyond. A former pro baller himself Dan Grunfeld has written "By The Grace of the Game: The Holocaust, A Basketball Legacy, and an Unprecedented American Dream".

Ahead of the 50th anniversary of Title IX with the help of Dr Bonnie J Morris we look at the impact the legislation has had in levelling the playing field in women’s sports, and how its influence spread far beyond the USA and into global professional sport.

Ending a professional sporting career is one of the hardest things an athlete will ever have to do. Paul Felder had a long and successful career as an MMA fighter. So how did he come to terms with putting an end to what he loved? He decided to dedicate himself to a new sport, one with less kicking and punching! Paul has entered a new Pro Am Triathlon competition the PTO and a documentary is chronicling his attempt to swim, cycle and run back to the top.

Ziggy Stardust: Hang on to yourself

When David Bowie stepped onto the stage as Ziggy Stardust in 1972, one of the world's greatest gay icons was born and the rulebooks were forever rewritten. Ziggy liberated the gay, the bisexual and the androgyne. Bowie was not an activist in the traditional sense but he helped give voice to disenfranchised subcultures in society. To mark the 50th anniversary of Bowie's iconic creation, a host of LGBTQ+ voices and campaigners explain how Ziggy Stardust, inspired a generation of people to celebrate their own self-actualisation, redefining sexuality and setting the groundwork for activism that continues today.

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.

Disabled musicians turning up the volume

Making it as a musician can be a tough gig, but if you have a disability, things can get even more complicated. Inaccessible venues, negative attitudes and lack of representation in the industry are common challenges people have to contend with. Despite this, disabled musicians are making their voices heard.

Award winning Nigerian-American Electronic Dance star Lachi has seven albums and millions of streams to her name. As a visually impaired musician, Lachi campaigns for the inclusion of disabled artists. As well as consulting on disability inclusion, including at the White House, this year she’s launched RAMPD, Recording Artists and Music Professionals with Disabilities.

Popular playback singer and producer Ritika Sahni formed Pehli Baarish, an inclusive band of disabled and non-disabled musicians in 2014. They perform in venues including hospitals, orphanages and drug rehabilitation centres, in order to change the perception of disability in Indian society. Ritika talks to Tina Daheley, along with one of its members, blind keyboard player Sarfaraz Qureshi.

Babsy Mlangeni is a celebrated South African musician, who lost his sight shortly after he was born. He started one of the first black-owned record label in South Africa and he now runs a foundation that inspires blind children to build up resilience and pursue their dreams. Babsy spoke to reporter Mpho Lakaje about his life and work.

British singer songwriter Ruth Lyon cut her teeth fronting her rock band Holy Moly & The Crackers. She shares her experiences with The Cultural Frontline about how being a wheelchair user has impacted her career and driven her activism

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.

And, Humans can walk for miles, solve problems and form complex relationships on the energy provided by three meals a day. That's a lot of output for a fairly modest input. Listener Charlotte from the UK wants to know: how are we so efficient? And how does human efficiency compare to that of machines?

CrowdScience presenter Marnie Chesterton pits her energetic wits against everything from cars to wheelchairs to find out how she shapes up. Cars can travel many hundreds of kilometres a day if you give them a couple of tanks of fuel. But the only fuel Marnie needs to walk to work is a cup of coffee. She gets experts to help her work out who does the most efficient job.

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? And how does she compare to an Olympic athlete? Marnie gets put through her paces to find out how efficient she really is.

Cuba’s swelling exodus

Since the Cuban Revolution of 1959 there have been many swells – and ebbs – of migration from the island. But as its people endure a serious economic squeeze and a crackdown on dissent, the desire to leave is growing again. Recently the numbers of Cubans arriving at US borders have been rising sharply, and President Biden's administration has announced some relaxations to its visa policy for Cubans. Will Grant reports from Havana on why some Cubans now feel it’s time for them to pack up and go.

The Nile perch – an energetic predator fish with a ravenous appetite – once fuelled a boom in fishing on Lake Victoria in east Africa. Around the lake’s shore, crews put out to haul lucrative catches from the waters. But these days the boom has collapsed, the perch are scarcer and smaller, and profits have dwindled too. Mark Weston went out on a night’s work with one Tanzanian fishermen and was left wondering if there’s much future in the business.

Land predators can be even more controversial. In Yellowstone National Park, in the USA, the native population of grey wolves was wiped out in the 1920s – but reintroduced in the 1990s. Since then they’ve flourished – and the park was called an 'international rewilding success story'. But as Emilie Filou found out, while tourists and park visitors wonder at the wolves, some local ranchers and farmers still consider them a pest – and call for more wolves to be hunted.

How can you change nationalities several times over, without ever moving house? It depends when and where you’re born. Monica Whitlock recently visited a village in Poland which has belonged to people of many nations – and stayed the night in a castle of many lands.

Fallout from Ukraine conflict compounds Lebanon's misery

Lebanon is one of many countries in the Middle East and Africa that rely heavily on food imports from Ukraine and Russia. Normally it imports 90 per cent of its wheat and cooking oil from there. But the blockage of Ukrainian ports by Russia and international sanctions against Moscow in response to the invasion have severely curtailed supplies, forcing up prices.

Also in the programme: The UK's plan to relocate asylum seekers to Rwanda in east-central Africa goes to the Court of Appeal; and Danish political drama Borgen, which has enjoyed international success, is back for a fourth series.

Bank customers demand that they be allowed to withdraw their deposits that have been blocked amid the economic crisis in the country as the Lebanese pound has lost about 90 percent of its value against the dollar and to reject the Capital Control Law. Lebanon has been struggling with compounded crises for nearly two years, including the economic and financial crisis, the covid-19 pandemic and the explosion of the Beirut port.

Beijing warns it will never allow Taiwan to secede from China

The testy relations between two superpowers - China and the US - have been on display at a high-profile security summit in Singapore, the Shangri-la Dialogue. The Chinese defence minister, General Wei Fenghe, gave a fiery response to his US counterpart, Lloyd Austin's speech. At issue, Beijing's strong view that China will eventually reclaim the self-ruled island of Taiwan. On the other side, the US has been cautioning China against contemplating an invasion of the island.

Also in the programme: the consultant palaeontologist on the film Jurassic World Domination, Professor Steve Brusatte, talks about dinosaurs and mammals; and the French head to the polls in what the left is billing as the "third round" of elections, in which they are seeking to deprive President Macron of a parliamentary majority.

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 black woman who cared for a Klansman

Stephanie Summerville tells us about her eye-opening experience as a casual worker. It was her first job and it thrust her into a shocking situation. She was providing respite care for a terminally-ill man in her hometown of Evansville, in Indiana. As she looked around his bedroom she saw a white robe and a hood with eyeholes cut out. Stephanie was a young African American woman and this was the unmistakable uniform of the Ku Klux Klan. This episode was first broadcast in January 2020.

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.

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.

How is climate change affecting our mental health?

We often talk about the physical costs of climate change; the economic fallout, the effect on livelihoods and damage to the earth. But all of the changes to our world caused by global warming will have an effect on our minds, our mental health too.
Earlier this year the mental health challenges caused by rising temperatures and extreme weather events were spotlighted in a report by the UN’s climate science body, the IPCC.
Anxiety, stress, post-traumatic stress disorder, and even suicide, are all predicted to increase as the world heats up. Jordan Dunbar looks at what this means for people living on the front line of climate change, including examples from Nigeria, India and the Philippines.

Our journey to sobriety

Alcoholism is a global health issue which each year results in millions of deaths. Kim Chakanetsa speaks to two women to discuss the realities of addiction and compare their different paths to sobriety.

Danijela Kovac from Canada gave up alcohol nearly 12 years ago. Years into sobriety, Danijela became frustrated at the lack of choice for non-alcoholic beverages for adults and created her own non-alcoholic wine company, Teetotaler Wines.

Desiree-Anne Martin from South Africa is a recovering addict with over 17 years of sobriety. She is also an author, poet and addictions and trauma counsellor. She has written a memoir, We Don’t Talk About It. Ever, about her struggles with mental health difficulties and overcoming drug and alcohol addiction.

Egg freezing: the ultimate workplace perk?

Singapore has become the latest country to allow egg freezing for non-medical reasons. That is a method of preserving a woman’s fertility so she can try and have children at a later date. With an increasing number of companies offering this and other fertility benefits as a workplace perk, Ivana Davidovic asks if this always good news for women?

Carol Chen, a businesswoman based in Singapore, explains why she would have loved to have had a chance to freeze her eggs closer to home, rather than have to travel thousands of miles to the US to do the procedure there. She also hopes that other counties in Asia will soon make the process more streamlined

Just under 40% of large companies in the US - so those over 500 employees - offer fertility benefits and the numbers are rising fast. Now even Europe, with its much more generous national health services, is starting to follow suit. Co-founder of a fertility benefit company based in Berlin, Jenny Saft, explains why.

American entertainment lawyer Nyasha Foy tells her egg freezing story and the role that her employer played, while also considering specific issues faced by black women. Lecturer Lucy van de Wiel warns that employers having influence over their staff's fertility choices may not always mean good news for women.

And Californian fertility doctor Aimee Eyvazzadeh, also known as the “egg whisperer”, talks about why she throws egg freezing parties and why we might need to accept that women will increasingly give birth in their 40s and 50s.

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.

A spy in the family

Peter Keup's family was shaped by the division of West and East Germany after the Second World War. He grew up in the East, cut off from relatives across the border. But when Peter’s parents applied for a visa to move West, they were condemned as traitors - he was kicked out of high school and banned from his sports clubs. He found a new passion in ballroom dancing, but when the state tried to stop this too he made the dangerous decision to escape East Germany illegally. He was caught and put in solitary confinement. It was only decades later that he discovered a betrayal at the heart of his family. This interview was first broadcast in November 2020.

Covid restrictions return to Beijing

Beijing has reinstated some coronavirus restrictions following an outbreak of Covid-19 in China's capital. It comes little more than a week after some curbs, including those on indoor dining, were eased. We look at the economic impact of China's 'zero Covid' policy in Beijing itself, in the country as a whole and on a global scale.

Elsewhere, the Africa CEO Forum gets underway in Abidjan on the Ivory Coast. Around 2,000 business leaders, investors and policy makers from all over Africa gather to discuss ways that the private sector can help further develop the continent.

Amnesty accuses Russia of war crimes in the city of Kharkiv

As the battle in the key eastern city of Severodonetsk continues, we hear details of a new report saying that hundreds of civilians have been killed in the Ukrainian city of Kharkiv by Russian shelling using banned cluster munition and inaccurate rockets. We hear first-hand stories by those who survived or witnessed the shelling.

A writer of an Australian newspaper has offered an apology after being accused of outing actress Rebel Wilson. The reporter has been accused of “forcing” the actor to come out by giving her two days’ notice before reporting the story. We speak to our reporter about the criticism the Sydney Morning Herald is facing and hear experiences of those who say they were pressured to come out.

We continue to focus on the growing insecurity in Nigeria following another attack over the weekend, this time in the state of Zamfara where gunmen abducted at least 29 people who were travelling back from a wedding ceremony. We speak to young Nigerians about their hope and fears, and reflect on a new survey suggesting that two thirds of young African people are not optimistic about their personal futures.

The Life Scientific: Pete Smith

Pete Smith is very down to earth. Not least because he’s interested in soil and the vital role it plays in helping us to feed the world, mitigate climate change and maintain a rich diversity of species on planet earth. He was born in a pub and failed the 11+ exam (designed to identify bright children just like him) but he became a distinguished professor nonetheless.
Tackling climate change in isolation is a mistake, he says. We need to consider all the challenges facing humanity and identify strategies that deliver benefits on all fronts: food security, bio-diversity and human development goals.
He tells Jim Al-Khalili about his life and work and the urgent need for our degraded peat bogs to be restored. Peat bogs that have been drained (for grazing or to plant trees) add to our carbon emissions. Healthy peat bogs, however, are carbon sinks.

The night Ukraine gave up its nuclear weapons

It was a night of intense negotiation which would change the world order as Ukraine gave up its nuclear weapons. Clive Myrie examines what was at stake in Budapest in 1994, how the deal was finally reached and how it went on to shape the world we face today.

Three decades ago, the newly independent country of Ukraine was briefly the third-biggest nuclear power on the planet. Thousands of nuclear arms had been left on Ukrainian soil after the collapse of the Soviet Union. But in the years that followed, Ukraine made the decision to denuclearise.

As Ukraine fights for its continued independence and the world hopes to stave off a catastrophic acceleration of nuclear weapons activity, Clive finds out how that agreement was negotiated and interpreted – and what it says about the situation we find ourselves in today. He talks to negotiators and others with an interest in those important diplomatic discussions 28 years ago.

An Anthology of Fashion

The Met Gala is an annual fundraiser for The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York City. Each year it marks the opening of The Costume Institute’s spring exhibition and is widely regarded as one of the most exclusive social events in the world. This year’s theme is In America: An Anthology of Fashion, the second in the two-part exhibition. The exhibition follows In America: A Lexicon of Fashion, which opened last year and remains on view with part two.

This year the focus is on American fashion and Andrew Bolton, The Costume Institute’s head curator, his team and curators from The Met’s American Wing. They are working with film directors to create different cinematic scenes, installed as still vignettes across 13 period rooms. Each room depicts a different period of history in the world of American fashion. The nine film directors involved include Sofia Coppola, Martin Scorsese and last year's Oscar winner Chloé Zhao.

Reporter Kizzy Cox has behind-the-scenes access shadowing the team, as they create the exhibition, bringing Andrew Bolton’s vision to life. She also chats to film director Chloé Zhao about how she goes about creating the Shaker Retiring Room vignette.

Racing to get kids reading

How a race to write books and a gadget that counts words are helping child literacy.

In South Africa eight out of 10 children struggle to read by the age of 10. But a charity called Book Dash has come up with an innovative way of getting more kids to read. It holds events where teams of writers and illustrators create a book in just 12 hours. More than a hundred titles have been created and over 2 million books have been given away to children.

And in the US a group called Birmingham Talks is giving pre-school children a pedometer-style gadget to wear. But instead of counting steps, the gadget counts the number of words they hear every day. The idea is to encourage parents to talk to their children more and therefore improve language development.

Abandoned at birth: 50 years searching for our families

When he was just a baby, David McBride made headline news in Northern Ireland. He had been discovered in the front seat of a stranger’s car, with no trace of who had left him there or why. David was a foundling. As an adult, he was desperate to find his birth mother and his search would lead him to Helen Ward. She was on a similar quest with a story as astonishing as David’s. Helen had also been abandoned as a baby, found in a phone box by a truck driver. They were born years apart and discovered in different countries but unusual details – like the fact they were both found in tartan bags – connected their stories. Decades of searching for answers would reveal an extraordinary secret.

Archiving music in glass

‘Project Silica’ uses ultrafast laser optics and machine learning to utilise glass as a storage device. The fused silica glass is fully resilient to electromagnetic pulses (EMP) and to the most challenging environmental conditions, ensuring the data written into it is not degraded. In this proof of concept for the Global Music Vault in Svalbard, this glass platter will have a selection of some of the most important music data and files on it. Gareth talks to Ant Rowstron, who has been working on the technology at Microsoft, and Beatie Wolfe, a musician whose music has been included in the data storage proof of concept.

Data-driven city planning
Barcelona is developing a digital twin of its city to aid with city management decisions. The city is currently at the initial stage of the project, designed to produce simulations of different planning scenarios to create more data-driven decisions. Gareth chats to Deputy Mayor of Barcelona Laia Bonet and Patricio Reyes, a researcher at the Barcelona Supercomputing Centre, about the potential uses of simulations and how digital twins could improve city planning in the future.

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

A four day working week in Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka is experiencing severe inflation, along with food and fuel shortages. Now around a million workers have been told to work four days a week instead of five. But will it work? Officials say an extra day each weekend will save citizens money, and allow them to grow food in their gardens. But some economists fear it could spark further unrest in the country - and do little to remedy economic woes. It's been another rough day in US and European markets. Global supply chain issues have affected supplies of tampons in the US. We'll also hear why Pixar's latest film has caused controversy in the Middle East.

US gas explosion puts pressure on prices

We're talking all about the different crises gripping global energy markets in this programme. First, an incident at an LNG facility in Texas has caused uncertainty over global supplies, with futures prices plummeting. It could be months before the plant is back online. Europe - which is already dealing with reduced supplies from Russia - now faces a shortage. In Sri Lanka, the fuel crisis continues, as people are asked to work a four day week. With the whole world seemingly facing supply disruption, President Joe Biden has announced he'll visit Saudi Arabia. We'll also visit Denmark and Tanzania, where innovative solutions are being found to keep energy flowing. To discuss these issues, Sam Fenwick is joined by Marketplace's Andy Uhler in Texas, and Sharon Brettkelly from the Detail podcast on Radio New Zealand. We'll also hear from the Sri Lankan political writer Asanga Abeyagoonasekera. Elsewhere in the programme, further fears about a decaying tanker in the Red Sea off Yemen. The UN's David Gressly tells us why it matters. Sticking with supply issues, women's sanitary products are getting harder to access in the US.

The Russian army in Ukraine has promised to open a safe route out of the besieged city of Severodonetsk. It's the first such attempt there, humanitarian corridors in other areas have often failed.

Delia Ephron: ‘I fell into my own romantic comedy'

Writer Delia Ephron collaborated with her sister Nora on some of the 90s’ best-loved romantic comedies: Sleepless in Seattle and You've Got Mail. So when Delia, now in her 70s, received an email from a man from the other side of the US, she felt as though she had landed in one of her own storylines. A magical romance ensued, but then things would go drastically off-script and she would need to call on love from all quarters to face down her life’s toughest challenge yet.

She’s published a book about her experience, it's called Left on Tenth: A second chance at life.

Love can blossom in the strangest of places. For scuba diver Hiroyuki Arakawa it unfolded beneath the waves off the coast of Tateyama, Japan when he became best friends with a fish called Yoriko. This report by Alessia Cerantola was first broadcast in 2017.

Uncertainty over Severodonetsk evacuations

It's unclear if there have been evacuations after Russia pledged to open a "humanitarian corridor" from the Azot plant in Severodonetsk, where hundreds of civilians are reportedly sheltering alongside Ukrainian soldiers. A spokesperson for the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs told the BBC that trapped people have stayed because they have "nowhere safe to go".

Ukraine’s homegrown harvest

Ukraine’s farms are under attack. Russian forces are burning or stealing grain and vegetables. The main growing regions in the south are under occupation, cutting off the country from its usual supplies of fresh food. What can the outside world do?

Monica Whitlock reports from the village of Brożec in western Poland where farmers have rallied round to send seeds to smallholdings and allotments in Ukraine - ‘Victory Gardens’ in President Zelensky’s words. Each garden feeds far more than one family, as Ukrainian villagers take in internally displaced people from the cities. But as the season for harvest approaches, far more worrying problems face Ukraine’s beleaguered farmers.

Is Spotify killing the music industry?

Not so long ago the music industry was threatened like it had never been before as online piracy tore into the profit margins of record labels the world over. Often hailed as the saviour, Spotify stepped in and offered audiences a new way of enjoying their favourite artists and without the need to illegally download pirated material. Despite this, musical artists are becoming increasingly vocal about how difficult it is to make a living from streaming, all whilst record labels and Spotify are reporting huge profit margins.

This week, Tanya Beckett takes a closer at how online streaming services are affecting the music industry.

Joe Tidy travels to El Salvador where almost everything can be paid for using the cryptocurrency Bitcoin. After President Bukele invested heavily in Bitcoin some people are questioning the long-term impact of such a move.

For some money has flowed in from mysterious investors, but others like local economist Tatiana Maraquin think the country’s economy cannot handle the fluctuations in the value of the cryptocurrency.

Ice cream: A cool history

There are almost as many ice cream origin stories as there are flavours, but where did the frozen treat really come from, and who invented it?

Rajan Datar explores the dessert’s murky history, from the harvesting and flavouring of snow in China and the Middle East thousands of years ago, to the experimental kitchens of the European aristocracy.

Ice cream’s evolution has, of course, closely followed that of refrigeration – we learn why salt was crucial for keeping early versions cold, and hear about the daring entrepreneur who began the global ice trade. Plus, who really invented the ice cream cone?

Thirty years after the Earth Summit

Thirty years ago, world leaders met at the United Nations Earth Summit in Rio and appeared to commit to action to tackle two of the world's greatest environmental threats. The Earth Summit launched the UN Climate Change Convention and the Convention on Biological Diversity. Science in Action assesses their success by talking to atmospheric scientist Sir Bob Watson, a former chair of the International Panel of Climate Change, and to Tom Oliver, professor of applied ecology at the University of Reading, decades on.

Also, Arctic zoologist Kristin Laidre tells us about the identification of an unique population of polar bears in south-east Greenland. The bears’ unusual habitat and means of survival may make them more resilient to the loss of sea ice as the Arctic region continues to warm. Finally, archaeo-geneticist Maria Spyrou talks about her team’s detective work which points to an area of Kyrgyzstan in Central Asia as the likely source of the 14th Century Black Death pandemic.

The Church's slave plantation

What are the consequences of the Church of England's historic slave plantations in Barbados today? Theologian Robert Beckford considers why and how the Church's missionary arm, the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel, got involved in the slavery business. He travels to Barbados to hear from a range of voices who tell the story of how in 1710, the Church turned the Codrington Plantation into a missionary experiment. The original mission failed but later generations did eventually adopt the Anglican faith. However, spurred by the country becoming a republic, some are now questioning the Church's historic role in slavery. For some, it has turned them away from Christianity; for others, there is a need to decolonise or Africanise Anglican Christianity in Barbados. They say the religion's only hope of survival on the island is to make it relevant to the black majority populace. Through the voices of Bajan Anglican worshipers, Robert interrogates what the future of the Church now looks like in terms of practice and governance in Barbados.

The race to stop a Red Sea oil catastrophe

One of the many casualties of the war in Yemen is the FSO Safer, a floating storage facility which holds one million barrels of crude oil. No maintenance has been carried out on the vessel for years, and experts believe it’s in danger or exploding or leaking oil in to the Red Sea at any moment.

The UN has previously unsuccessfully tried to resolve the issue, but David Gressly, the Humanitarian Coordinator for Yemen, thinks the next few weeks could be vital, and is calling on the private sector and individuals to help fund an operation to transfer the oil to a safer vessel.

We hear from Tim Lenderking, US Special Envoy for Yemen, Ghiwa Nakat of Greenpeace Middle East and North Africa and Yemen’s Minister for Water and the Environment Tawfeeq Al Sharjabi.

The repatriation of precious artefacts

The King of Belgium this month handed back a Congolese mask, one of about 84,000 artefacts taken during the colonial-era which the country has agreed to return. In 2018 a report commissioned by the French government recommended the return of thousands of African artworks taken from the continent during colonial rule. This week the director of the V&A museum in London, Tristram Hunt, told The Real Story that he’d like to see a review of decades-old UK laws which prohibit historical pieces being returned to their countries of origin. The clamour for the return of objects which may have been taken, stolen or bought during the colonial era is growing louder. The people and communities who want them back say it's about preserving their cultural identities. So, is it time for some of the planet’s biggest and most visited museums to repatriate many more of the items they’ve acquired from around the world? And how can the educational value of so-called ‘encyclopaedic museums’ continue to educate millions if the number of artefacts they have on display is diminished?

What is a quantum computer?

Every year, new computers are being developed that are faster and smarter than ever before. But if you really want to take things to the next level, you've got to go quantum. CrowdScience listener Atikah in Hungary likes the sound of a quantum computer but wants to know: what exactly is it, what can it do that a normal computer can't, and how soon can she get hold of one?

The digital devices in our everyday lives - from laptop computers to smartphones - are all based on 0s and 1s: so-called ‘bits’. But quantum computers are based on ‘qubits’ - the quantum 0s and 1s that are altogether stranger, but also more powerful. With the help of quantum computing researcher Jessica Pointing and a spinning doughnut, presenter Alex Lathbridge learns how these ‘qubits’ allow computers to perform calculations millions of times faster than normal.

While quantum computers do exist, it turns out they're not yet big enough or stable enough to be really useful. Alex visits Professor Winfried Hensinger and his prototype quantum computer at the University of Sussex to understand what they can do right now, and why it’s so incredibly difficult to scale them up. He hears from the engineers racing to overcome the obstacles and unlock the potential of these mega-powerful systems.

But once the engineering problems are solved, what then? Professor Shohini Ghose opens our eyes to the exciting range of possible applications - from helping create new drugs, to making electric batteries much more efficient and maybe even helping farmers fertilise their crops for a fraction of the price.
