From rebel to president: Colombia’s new leftist leader

Colombia this week elected a former rebel as its first left-wing president. Gustavo Petro’s win on Sunday represents a rejection of the establishment in a country facing strong economic headwinds, high levels of inequality, and continuing gang violence fuelled by the cocaine trade. Mr Petro and his running mate Francia Márquez - who will become the country’s first black vice-president - plan to reform taxes, phase out new oil exploration projects, and rethink the war on drugs. Colombia has long been a close partner to the United States in the region, recently designated by Washington as “a major non-NATO ally”. The new leadership team in Bogotá want to take a fresh look at trade relations with both the US and Venezuela. So, who is Gustavo Petro and what does he stand for? What will his historic win mean for Colombia’s place in the region and the world? And can the new president deliver on his promise of sweeping change without control of the country’s congress? Ritula Shah is joined by a panel of expert guests.

SAT 01:06 Business Matters (w172ydpdzpq8b3d)
US reverses abortion rights

A decision to remove constitutional abortion rights has deepened divisions in the US. Pro-life leaders have welcomed the Supreme Court's decision and a number of states are already changing their laws. Critics say it will be detrimental to women's health, and to the wider American economy. Rachel Fey from the pro-choice group Power To Decide tells us why.

We're also joined throughout the programme by Rhona Vonshay Sharpe, the CEO of the US-based Women's Institute for Science, Equity and Race (WISER); as well as Peter Ryan, Senior Business Correspondent at ABC News in Sydney.

After a deadly earthquake rocked Afghanistan, Europe has pledged financial support. A former minister, Gul Sabit, explains what is needed in the longer term.

Meanwhile, in Europe, leaders are meeting ahead of the next G7 summit in Germany to discuss food security. Sophia Murphy from the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy is following the developments.

Rafael Bostic, head of Atlanta's Federal Reserve Bank, has been speaking to Kai Ryssdal from our partner programme Marketplace.

Dan Christian: Diary of a cricketer

On this week’s Stumped with Alison Mitchell, Jim Maxwell and Sunil Gupta we ask whether you would rather miss the birth of your first child or have the chance to play in a World Cup? For Australian international Dan Christian that was a dilemma he had to consider. He joins us to discuss his book ‘The All-Rounder’, in which he documents a chaotic year of dodging Covid-19 and travelling the world playing cricket.

Plus we’ll catch up with the chief executive of the Ukraine Cricket Federation, Kobus Olivier. Kobus spoke to Stumped in February on the day Russia launched its invasion of Ukraine. He has since fled his home in Kyiv and started a new life teaching refugees how to play cricket in Croatia. We’ll also look ahead to South Africa women’s first Test match in over seven years.

Colombia's first leftist leader

In more than 200 years as a republic, Colombia has never elected a left-wing leader - until now. Gustavo Petro, a former member of the M-19 rebel group, narrowly won in a very polarised election. He said Colombia “voted for change.” BBC Mundo’s Daniel Pardo, who's from Bogota, witnessed the celebrations.

North Korean trash
Seoul politics professor Kang Dong-wan is fascinated by life inside North Korea, and based his latest research on the vast array of packaging washed up on South Korea’s Five West Sea Islands. BBC Korean’s Jungmin Choi tells us what he discovered there, and what it reveals about life inside the communist state.

Russia's lost generals
Why are so many Russian generals dying in the Ukraine conflict? At least four have been killed, possibly more, and yet it's usually rare for a general to die in battle. BBC Russian's Olga Ivshina explains what the high casualty rate tells us about the way Russian forces are fighting.

The imprisonment of Aung San Suu Kyi
The deposed former leader of Myanmar, Aung San Suu Kyi, has been moved from house arrest to solitary confinement in prison. BBC Burmese editor Soe Win Than tells us what's known about her previous living conditions, and the significance of the junta's decision to put her behind bars.

Vietnamese brides
China has a huge sex imbalance in its population, with 10% more men than women. This legacy of the one child policy has had a huge impact on neighbouring Vietnam; it's estimated 100,000 Vietnamese women married to Chinese men. Bui Thu from BBC Vietnamese spoke with one woman who married for love about her experiences.

US Supreme Court ends constitutional right to abortion

Millions of women in the US will lose the constitutional right to abortion after the Supreme Court overturned its 50-year-old Roe v Wade decision. The judgement paves the way for individual states to ban the procedure.

Thirteen have already passed so-called trigger laws to automatically outlaw abortion.

We'll hear from activist Alina Salganicoff of the Kaiser Family Foundation and LA Times reporter Molly Hennessy-Fiske, who was inside an abortion clinic in Texas when news of the decision broke.

Rat catchers: Women in pest control

Many people are scared of insects, reptiles and rodents and certainly wouldn't choose to work with them. Not today's guests. Kim Chakanetsa talks to two women working in pest control about their passion for the job and the ingenuity and adaptability of some household pests.

Patricia Page's father was reluctant to let his daughter join the family business. He didn't think rat catching was a job for women. But when the factory in Northern Ireland she worked at closed down he relented and she too became a pest controller. She loves her job because of the difference she can make to people's lives - she says sometimes it's 80% counselling, 20% pest control.

Regine Lim is an entomologist from Malaysia and the first woman to become president of her country's pest control association, the MPMA. After leaving university she worked in the pest control industry for ten years before setting up her own company. She's since sold it to the firm she now works for. Regine actively encourages women to join the profession saying you never stop learning and having to come up with new solutions as pests are always adapting.

Life in Kyiv

Back in February, when Russian forces began their invasion of Ukraine, their tanks were heading towards Kyiv. The Russians retreated before making it to the centre of the city, but left devastation in every area that had been fought over in those weeks. Buildings everywhere had been damaged or destroyed, and tens of thousands of residents had fled. But now, residents of the Ukrainian capital are seeing a return of life.

In a café in Kyiv, the BBC’s correspondent Joe Inwood met up with some of those now living and working in the city to hear how it is changing and recovering, even though the war continues in other parts of the country.

The District One Foundation is a 1000-strong team of volunteers dedicated to helping restore damaged homes, schools and hospitals, and give whatever support they can to people returning to live in the city. The work is challenging, but they say it’s energised them and given them a sense of great positivity. They add that sometimes the thing people need the most is simply a hug.

In another discussion, young people from the creative world, two photographers and an artist, describe how their day to day work has changed, but their art can be put to essential use on social media and beyond, informing the rest of the world about the war and how life is in Ukraine as time goes on.

The secrets of Norway's sporting success

Is there something in the water, in the mountains, in the fjords of Norway that creates super human athletes?

Living in Moscow's Shadow

After President Putin’s invasion of Ukraine, other former Soviet republics like Georgia and Moldova are feeling vulnerable. Like Ukraine, both countries want to join Nato and the EU. But both also include small pro-Russian ‘statelets’ - Abhazia and South Ossetia in Georgia, and Transnistria in Moldova - which are similar to the separatist areas of Luhansk and Donetsk in Ukraine. Given what’s happened to Ukraine, should these neighbours learn to live with an expansionist Russia next door, or prepare to defend themselves and risk provoking President Putin into fresh military action?

Keep your music in the fridge with QuinzeQuinze, Bonnie Banane, HSRS, Sébastien Forrester and Photay

Bonnie Banane, HSRS, Sébastien Forrester, Photay and QuinzeQuinze's Tsi Min discuss downloading ideas, why music is like a dish with an infinite number of ingredients, and the importance of not drowning in words.

Tsi Min formed the French-Tahiti group QuinzeQuinze with a bunch of close friends who met at art school in Paris. Their music is electronic in nature, but draws on the sounds and traditions of their French-Polynesian heritage. French alt-pop star Bonnie Banane has a unique experimental sound that blends R&B and electronic music, and is known for some pretty eccentric music videos. Julie Bessard, otherwise known as HSRS, is a transgressive pop artist from France who started singing and producing in 2004 under the moniker BESSA. Sébastien Forrester is a French-British drummer and composer who was formerly known as Holy Strays. After spending lots of time in Gabon growing up, he developed a passion for percussion, particularly the Bwiti ritual drums. Photay is an electronic music producer based in New York, who is a master of combining natural and synthetic sounds. Being introduced to Aphex Twin at the age of nine provided him with the foundation for his musical journey, and he’s also a member of the Afro-Latin electronic collective WEMA.

Simu Liu: Making heroes for us

With scores of superhero films due for release, from Spiderman, to Batgirl, Thor and Black Panther, and a global comic book market predicted to grow to $12 billion a year by 2028, we go behind the mask of these larger than life characters, to look at the role Superheroes play in different societies and cultures around the world, and ask, do we need them more than ever today?

Canadian Chinese actor Simu Liu discusses becoming the first Asian superhero in a Marvel Universe film, Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings. He tells reporter Anna Bailey how his path to acting wasn’t always easy or a career his parents originally approved of, as penned in his new memoir We Were Dreamers: An Immigrant Superhero Origin Story.

Pakistani illustrator, comic artist and writer Umair Najeeb Khan discusses his new comic book generation of heroes, the Paak Legion, with Tina Daheley. It includes Samaa, born with the ability to manipulate the wind, Afsoon, the Protector of the Mountains and Haajar, a mother of three, fighting crime on the streets of Lahore. Growing up in Pakistan, he couldn’t see himself represented in this world, so he designed a set of Pakistani superheroes of his own.

And reporter Paul Waters visits the Superheroes, Orphans & Origins exhibition of comic art at London’s Foundling Museum and talks to comic artists Woodrow Phoenix and Lisa Wool-Rim Sjöblom about their work exploring the psyche of superheroes.

Monster microbe

Researchers have discovered a species of bacteria which dwarfs all others by thousands of times. Normally you need a microscope to see single-celled bacteria, but Thiomargarita magnifica is the length and width of an eyelash. It's been found growing in mangrove swamps in the Caribbean. Roland Pease talks to Jean Marie Volland about what makes this Godzilla of the microbial world extra-special.

Also in the programme, a new study published in the journal Nature has discovered that women scientists are less likely than their male peers to be credited for their contributions to research projects. Roland discusses the findings with the study leader Julia Lane of New York University and nanoscientist Shobhana Narasimhan in Bangalore. We also find out about the oldest evidence for wildfires on the planet which raged across the land 430 million years ago, with palaeobotanist Ian Glasspool. And Edinburgh University vertebrate palaeontologist Steve Brusatte talks about some of the evolutionary wonders in his new book The Rise and Reign of the Mammals.

Death is inevitable, though many of us would rather not dwell on it. For those with a terminal illness, however, the end of life is clearly a more pressing reality.

CrowdScience listener Sam has known for a while that her illness is terminal, and by now she’s got used to the idea. But she finds many friends and family would rather avoid the subject at all costs; they don’t want to acknowledge what’s happening until it’s all over. She’s wondering if there’s a way to lighten up the topic of her approaching death, and create the openness she craves.

If we could learn to be more accepting of illness and dying, the end of life could be a more positive experience for all involved. So how can we face up to the impending death of a loved one, and best support that person in the process?
In search of answers, we talk a clinical psychologist about death anxiety, visit a death café, and learn about a scheme in India where whole communities are trained in caring for people at the end of life.

The killings go on in Kashmir

Pascale Harter introduces reportage, analysis and reflection from BBC correspondents and writers around the world.

The situation in Kashmir is deteriorating again, with a new wave of attacks on civilians. Militant separatist groups appear to be targeting people purely because of their religion, while the Indian army stands accused of human rights violations. Yogita Limaye has been hearing from two families affected by the violence.

We owe the planet’s peat bogs a debt of gratitude, as they are hugely effective at sucking planet-warming carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere and storing it underground. Andrew Harding travelled deep into the Republic of Congo, to see a vast area of peat the size of England, which is currently under threat.

Colombia has just elected the first avowedly left-wing president in its history. Katy Watson was in Bogota to see the election of President Gustavo Petro confirmed - and spoke to some of those who voted for him about their hopes for a more diverse future.

Sadakat Kadri takes a sobering journey to a corner of eastern Poland which may seem sedate - perhaps even a little dull - but where historic grievances and future risks are never far away. The 'Suwalki Gap' is a narrow frontier between Ukraine and Poland, sandwiched between Belarus and the Russian enclave of Kaliningrad on the Baltic. It's a spot with huge strategic importance - should Russia ever roll its tanks across the region it will cut off several NATO countries from their allies.

Carol Kaye: Queen of the bass

Rock legend Suzi Quatro introduces us to a hero of hers, Carol Kaye. Carol began her studio career in Los Angeles in 1957, playing guitar on some of Sam Cooke's soul records. At 23, she was already a top guitar player, having toured with big bands and played jazz clubs since she was a teenager. She soon became one of the most in-demand studio musicians in LA, switching to her trademark Fender bass in 1963.

Now 87, Carol is full of stories from her extraordinary career. She was part of a group of highly-skilled session musicians who could not only cut records super fast, but could also invent catchy lines to create a pop hit. Producers hired them to help mould the new sound of pop and rock coming out of Los Angeles in the late '50s and '60s. From her log book, Carol reels off record dates for the Beach Boys, Monkees, Nancy Sinatra, Frank Zappa, The Righteous Brothers, Sonny & Cher, Elvis, Simon & Garfunkel, Quincy Jones - to name just a few. It is estimated she has played on over 10,000 recording dates.

But Carol was not interested in fame or credits. She was a single mom of three who had to provide for a household of six. Then Hollywood became a dangerous place in the late '60s, and she began to concentrate on teaching, book publishing, and Hollywood film and tv scores.

Menopause and diet

The menopause can cause all sorts of changes in your body – weight gain, hot flushes, sleeplessness and joint pain amongst others. Can what you eat help ease these symptoms?

Officially a woman has reached menopause after 12 months without a period, however the transition itself can take years.

Many women are prescribed hormone replacement therapy to tackle some of these symptoms, but lifestyle changes can also be helpful.

In this programme we’re joined by three women who have experienced menopause and found some benefits in food. Elizabeth Ward is a registered dietitian based in the United States. She co-wrote a book called ‘The Menopause Diet Plan, A Natural Guide to Managing Hormones, Health and Happiness’. Fiona Staunton is a trained chef in Dublin, Ireland, who offers menopause cookery courses called ‘Fiona’s Food For Life’. Sue Mbaya is a Zimbabwean living in Ethiopia, she works in policy and governance, and presents the podcast ‘Pause for Menopause’.

Getting kids out of institutions

More than five million children live in orphanages or other institutions - the vast majority in low or middle income countries.
 
Staff are often overstretched, poorly paid and don’t last long in the job, which leaves children deprived of one of the most important things for healthy development - a consistent, loving relationship.
 
Organisations around the world are now working hard to find these children the one thing they desperately need - a family. But in countries with high rates of poverty and fragile social work and foster care systems, it’s not always easy.
 
We visit a project in Colombia to meet the children, parents, and trainee foster carers whose lives are taking a very different turn. And in the UK, we look at a project giving foster families the support network they need.

The Church's slave plantation: Part two

In the second part of this two part series looking at the role of the Church of England in Barbados, Professor Robert Beckford explores the Christian understanding of reparations. Where does the idea come from in Scripture? Has the Anglican church been slow to address the slave trade as a focus of reparatory justice? Robert speaks to Christians in Barbados who say reparations from the Church are now both justified and necessary. But their perspective is only one side of the story. In England, representatives from the Church of England and the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel articulate their understanding of reparations and how they propose to atone for their past involvement in the transatlantic slave trade. Robert looks into Christian scripture to explore if there could be a theological case for the payment of reparations.

Walking the Iron Curtain: Wild lands reunited

In May 1952 East Germany sealed its entire border with the capitalist west. Over the next 37 years 75,000 people would be arrested trying to flee the Communist East and hundreds would die in the attempt. Today the barbed wire and machine guns are gone and the old border has been transformed into a protected wildlife zone. It's a home to lynx, wolf and wildcat and a vital corridor for migrating birds and mammals. Mary-Ann Ochota begins her journey along the old border, meeting the people doing their bit to turn a birdwatcher's fantasy into the world's longest nature reserve.

Samurai: Japan’s elite warrior class

The reality behind the stereotypical image of Japan’s fearsome elite warriors is more nuanced than we are led to believe. It is thought the samurai developed as a social class in medieval Japan, when the term could encompass lowly foot soldiers or mercenaries, and often untrustworthy ones at that. A far cry from the skilled fighters who supposedly pledged undying loyalty to their lord, and followed a code of honour.

In fact, it was during peacetime that the image of the samurai came to be defined when their role as warriors was no longer necessary. During Japan’s aggressive imperial expansion in the early 20th Century, the samurai ideal was once again manipulated for nationalistic purposes.

Rajan Datar’s guests include Michael Wert, who has published several books on Japan’s warrior class, including Samurai: A Concise History. He is associate professor of East Asian History at Marquette University in Milwaukee; Marcia Yonemoto, professor and hair of the Department of History at the University of Colorado Boulder. She is the author of The Problem of Women in Early Modern Japan, which examines the role of women in Japan’s military-bureaucratic state; and Polina Serebriakova, whose doctoral thesis at the University of Cambridge in the UK focuses on warrior leaders in medieval Japan.

Egypt's first democratic Presidential election

In June 2012, Egypt held its first ever free democratic Presidential election. Mohamed Morsi, representing the Muslim Brotherhood, emerged victorious. Ben Henderson spoke to Rabab El-Mahdi, Chief Strategist to one of Morsi’s rival candidates. She described what it was like to be involved in the first election of its kind, how Morsi tried to recruit her, and the personal impact of political campaigning in such a polarised country.

In June 1982 a young Chinese-American engineer was murdered with a baseball bat by two white men in the US city of Detroit. The lenient sentences the perpetrators received sparked an Asian-American activist movement with protests across the US. At the time, America was going through an economic depression and many blamed Japan, which was perceived to be flooding the US with its cars. For Asian-Americans, it was a time of fear. Farhana Haider spoke to Helen Zia, one of the activists who led the fight for justice. This programme was first broadcast in 2017.

In 2003, Dr Nayana Patel, who ran her own fertility clinic in the state of Gujarat in India, carried out her first surrogacy procedure. It involved a surrogate mother and her own daughter. Dr Patel's clinic would go on to become one of the biggest in India attracting Western couples. It was legalised in 2002 but due to growing criticism, the government banned couples from the West from paying Indian surrogates to bear their children in 2015, arguing that the industry was exploiting poor women. Reena Stanton-Sharma spoke to Dr Nayana Patel.

In 1985, the first robot-assisted medical surgery took place in Vancouver, Canada. It’s now become a standard feature of operating theatres worldwide. The original gadget was named Arthrobot.

The Life Scientific: Jacinta Tan

When a person with severe anorexia nervosa refuses food, the very treatment they need to survive, is that refusal carefully considered and rational, as it can appear to those around them? Or is it really the illness that’s causing them to say ‘no’?

This is one of the thorny ethical dilemmas that Jacinta Tan has wrestled with over the course of her career. She is deeply curious about the mind, and has spent hundreds of hours sitting with people with anorexia nervosa, not persuading them to eat, rather listening to them talk about what’s going on in their minds and how the illness influences their decisions.

These rich internal worlds, that she has revealed, shape her work as a Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist at Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust, where she treats people with eating disorders. The views of those with the condition and their families have been central to the recent government reviews of the Eating Disorder Services that she led in Scotland and Wales.

These conditions can be hugely challenging to treat. Jacinta Tan tells Jim al-Khalili how it's the art of medicine, as much as the science, that helps people recover.

How can we save the world’s tropical peatland?

Scientists estimate that peatlands around the world hold about 350 billion tonnes of carbon. The tropical peatland of the Congo Basin – known as Cuvette Centrale - are thought to store the equivalent of 20 years of US fossil fuels emissions.

BBC Africa Correspondent Andrew Harding has been up to his neck in it, witnessing the work being done by scientists to protect it and what might threaten its future.
He also hears a warning from Environment Minister, Arlette Soudan-Nonault, about the choices the Republic of Congo faces between preserving the peatlands and making use of its resources to provide a living for its population.

We find out how one simple lesson learned in Indonesia is being shared with countries in Africa and South America to help keep a global promise to protect tropical peatlands. It’s not just about promises though – financial experts explain why persuading richer countries to pay cash for “wasteland” could be good for all of us.

Presenters Kate Lamble and Neal Razzell are joined by:
Dr Daniel Murdiyarso, Principal Scientist with the Centre for International Forestry Research, Indonesia

Women living with life-changing diabetes

There is no known cure for type 1 diabetes. Usually diagnosed in childhood, people’s experiences differ considerably depending on where they live and their access to adequate treatment and care. Without them, complications can arise which in the most severe cases result in death. Kim Chakanetsa speaks to two women from Brazil and Australia to see how their experiences with the chronic condition compare.

Janina Gaudin, from New Zealand, is an illustrator of comics about life with Type 1 Diabetes. She uses humour to document the realities of diabetes and discuss the stigma surrounding it as well as the insulin crisis.

Beatriz Scher is an entrepreneur and digital influencer from Brazil. She has had type 1 diabetes for 21 years and believes that education is vital so that people can live fulfilled, healthy and happy lives. Beatriz uses her social media channels to raise awareness about the condition.

Can we get better at accepting death?

Death is inevitable, though many of us would rather not dwell on it. For those with a terminal illness, however, the end of life is clearly a more pressing reality.

CrowdScience listener Sam has known for a while that her illness is terminal, and by now she’s got used to the idea. But she finds many friends and family would rather avoid the subject at all costs; they don’t want to acknowledge what’s happening until it’s all over. She’s wondering if there’s a way to lighten up the topic of her approaching death, and create the openness she craves.

If we could learn to be more accepting of illness and dying, the end of life could be a more positive experience for all involved. So how can we face up to the impending death of a loved one, and best support that person in the process?
In search of answers, we talk a clinical psychologist about death anxiety, visit a death café, and learn about a scheme in India where whole communities are trained in caring for people at the end of life.

The casino cheat who stopped his own million dollar scam

It started with baseball cards on the school playground. By 17 Richard Marcus was already gambling serious money in the big Las Vegas casinos. At 40, he had devised a scam that was making him millions of dollars as one of the world’s most prolific casino cheats. But it takes a thief to catch a thief, and now the same casinos he once robbed employ him to sniff out fraudsters.

Bilquis Edhi, the nurse and philanthropist who transformed Pakistani healthcare, died earlier this year at the age of 74. She spoke to Outlook in 2016 describing how she and her husband built up and ran the Edhi Foundation from a Karachi slum to be Pakistan’s most impressive social enterprise.

G7 leaders discuss Russian oil price cap

A proposed price cap on Russian oil is being discussed by G7 leaders, from the world's most advanced economies, at a three-day summit at a luxury resort in the mountains of Bavaria, Germany. The war in Ukraine is at at the top of the G7 agenda, with nations expected to promise further military support for Kyiv and more sanctions on Moscow.

We discuss the price cap and look at how it could affect the cost oil globally if introduced.

Elsewhere, criminal barristers in England and Wales go on strike in a dispute over legal aid funding and pay.

As the Wimbledon tennis tournament gets underway, we consider its economic impact and find out about the value of tennis tournaments and sponsorships internationally.

The Life Scientific: Adam Hart

Ant-loving professor, Adam Hart, shares his passion for leaf cutting ants with Jim Al Khalili. Why do they put leaves in piles for other ants to pick up?

Talking at the Hay Festival, Adam describes the experiments he designed to test the intelligence of the hive mind. When does a waggle dance become a tremble dance? And how do the honey bees know when this moment should be?

We like the phrase ‘as busy as a bee’. In fact, bees spend a lot of time doing nothing at all, a sensible strategy from the point of view of natural selection.

From Ukraine to Israel: An exodus for our times

Thousands of Ukrainians are fleeing to Israel – joining a million-plus former Soviets who have already moved to this Middle Eastern nation, with profound consequences for both Israel and the region.

Tim Samuels investigates this very modern ‘exodus’ of Jews, once again running from Eastern Europe, a journey so many of their ancestors made before.

He meets Ukrainian refugees in a Tel Aviv immigration hotel trying to start a new life for themselves after fleeing from the horrors of the conflict, but also finding themselves sharing the same facilities as Russians who have left their country too for Israel.

The land they are moving to is already home to more than a million citizens from the former USSR– a wave that began in earnest in the 1990s, after decades of being denied the right to leave for Israel.

Samuels meets ‘refusenik’-turned-Israeli politician, Natan Sharansky, to talk about the impact this sudden wave of ex-Soviets had on their new homeland and Middle Eastern politics. And what will be in store for these latest migrants – in a country where ‘Russians’ can still be seen and treated as a distinct tribe.

Not far from the hotel housing new arrivals lies the vast, unfinished residency of Roman Abramovich – one of a number of oligarchs with Israeli citizenship. It is unclear if the home will be ever be completed by Abramovich, if action will be taken against the oligarchs, or indeed whether Israel will carry on trying to mediate in the conflict.

It all speaks to the complex and unusual relationship between Ukraine, Russia and this Middle Eastern nation with so many citizens from the former Soviet Union.

Cercle: Dance under a waterfall

Cercle is one of the most respected live-streaming platforms in dance music, broadcasting performances in breathtaking locations to tens of millions of viewers across the globe. From hot air balloons to mountain tops, waterfalls, world-heritage sites, and under the Northern Lights in the arctic circle.

Part videographers and music curators, part adrenaline junkies, Cercle blend sound with mind-blowing images and aesthetic, creating audio-visual experiences in which viewers are immersed from start to finish.

Broadcaster and DJ Frank McWeeny follows founder Derek Barbolla and his team of creatives for nine months, as they plan and broadcast a show under a waterfall in a remote part of Bosnia and Herzegovina. What makes it a perfect location? How is the artist selected? And with multiple cameras, drones, and a live audience of one thousand, how difficult is it to capture? From the importance of colour to the best time of day to film, we uncover the technical and logistical challenges of pulling off a production of this magnitude.

In this Business Daily mini series we're exploring how businesses we all use regularly are being affected by the cost of living crisis. This episode looks at how bakers are coping as the price of grain, dairy and the power needed to heat their ovens, all continue to increase.

Leanna Byrne speaks to bakers in Egypt, France and Uganda – one baker tells us that the price increases she's seeing for ingredients means she should really have doubled her prices. Our French baker tells us the price of butter is a huge issue there and in Egypt we investigate the expense of wheat imports and difficulty sourcing local wheat.

The schoolgirl who fought an oil company and won

Los Angeles sunshine beats down on Hollywood and more surprisingly America's largest urban oil field. At the age of nine Nalleli Cobo started campaigning to close down an oil well next to her home in LA, after suffering nosebleeds, headaches, stomach cramps and body spasms. Nalleli's neighbours experienced similar symptoms too, and they believed it was related to an oil facility that had ramped up production. Four years later it ceased operations, but Nalleli's fight hasn't stopped there. She set up community action group STAND-L.A. to fight urban oil drilling across the city and has helped shape local policy on the issue. Nalleli recently won a Goldman Environmental Prize for her work.

What’s the deal with the metaverse?

So what is the metaverse really? Following a montage of BBC World Service listeners’ responses and opinions, contributing expert Ghislaine Boddington will shed light on this question. As it turns out, while there are current examples of virtual worlds, the metaverse is still being formed. Predicting exactly what it will be like is harder than one might think.

An afternoon in Altspace
What does it feel like to be in the metaverse? Reporter Chris Berrow strapped on his VR headset and spent some time in AltspaceVR to find out. From holding a virtual cat to doing yoga class, his experience turned out to be stranger than he had anticipated.

Future implications
If the metaverse becomes as popular as some predict, where are we headed? In a live discussion with tech futurist and metaverse expert Cathy Hackl, video game writer Colin Harvey, and our very own Ghislaine Boddington, we discuss the big issues on the horizon. Who will be creating it and who will have access? Could this lead to harvesting of biometric data? Will all of us actually use the metaverse?


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

The tragic cost of migrant smuggling

At least 50 people from Mexico, Guatemala and Honduras have been found dead in the back of a truck outside the Texas city of San Antonio. Mexico has blamed a people smuggling crisis at the border with the US. The illegal movement of people can be highly lucrative, but incredibly dangerous. So what makes people attempt the journey? We'll hear reaction from across the continent. The tragedy comes amid plummeting costs across North and South America, and protests in the Peruvian capital. The country's former finance minister tells us about a growing emergency in the country. (Picture: Emergency crews carry another victim of the regular violence and death at the US-Mexico border.

Dozens dead on US-Mexico border

An abandoned truck containing dead migrants has sparked horror in North America. The US-Mexico border is among the busiest, and most dangerous, in the world. Two journalists on either side of the fence - Allysa Tellez in San Antonio, and Lillian Perlmutter in Mexico City - look at the factors driving smuggling, violence and death.

Some of the world's wealthiest nations have pledged further support for Ukraine, but China wasn't at the negotiating table. Independent economist Andy Xie provides a view from Singapore.

Like in many countries, the rising cost of fuel is causing unrest in Peru. A former minister, Alfonso Segura, tells us the protests are likely to continue into a third week.

Walking The Iron Curtain

Walking the Iron Curtain: Booming Balkans

The borders of the Balkans have been splintered, cracked and remade countless times over centuries. Suspicions and hatreds, ancient and modern, still scar the landscape. Travelling through the southernmost regions bisected by the Iron Curtain, Mary-Ann Ochota meets the conservationists convinced that a shared love of the region's landscape and wildlife can heal division.

From Trieste in Italy, a staging post for generations of refugees- including the Ukranian exodus of 2022- she travels south-east to Lake Prespa where North Macedonia, Greece and Albania meet.

Conflict and poverty have driven people from this beautiful place but in their absence nature has thrived. Can joint efforts to protect the region's bears, lynx and endemic fish and flora boost the economy and persuade the young people to stay and the diaspora to return?

Black Axe: The Biggest Mafia You’ve Never Heard Of

Years in the making, this major BBC investigation lifts the lid on Black Axe, a deadly Nigerian mafia with operatives all over the world.

Three decades ago, journalist Peter Macjob lost his friend to a ‘cult’, a murderous gang in his hometown of Abeokuta, Nigeria.
So when an anonymous blogger presents him with a cache of documents that promises to expose Black Axe's inner circle, he feels compelled to try and uncover their secrets.

The search takes us from Europe to the US, where the group commits crime on an industrial scale, and ends in Nigeria itself - Black Axe’s home turf.

On the hunt for a criminal kingpin, we’ll meet victims, whistleblowers and footsoldiers, to find out who’s in charge, and how far their power extends.

Ethiopia’s disinformation war

When President Abiy Ahmed came to power in Ethiopia, he was seen as a reformer who was heralding a new era of hope. In 2019, he was even awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. But less than a year later, he ordered a military offensive against regional forces in Tigray in the north of the country. He said he did so in response to an attack on a military base housing government troops. It’s a conflict that has been characterised by an almost constant media blackout in Tigray. In the absence of detailed reporting, rumour, denial and misinformation has been rife. But a few dedicated journalists have been working hard to get at the truth. Chloe Hadjimatheou hears from one of them as she tries to unpick fact from fiction in Ethiopia’s information war.

The internationally acclaimed poet and playwright Lemn Sissay OBE shares the story of his life by recalling five memorable dishes.

His is an extraordinary story of family, and identity, lost and found.

Born to an Ethiopian mother in the north of England and quickly placed into long-term foster care, Lemn was, for years, deprived of any knowledge of his heritage. His traumatic upbringing and subsequent search for his family and identity have informed much of his award-winning writing.

In this programme, he tells Ruth Alexander about five memorable dishes that act as “positioning points” in his life to date.

Hong Kong - Kowloon Walled City

A unique way of life came to an end in Hong Kong in 1993 when Kowloon Walled City was demolished. When the rest of Hong Kong was a British colony, the seven acres of the Walled City were still nominally under the control of mainland China - but it became a lawless world of its own. At one point it was one of the most of the most densely populated places the world has ever seen. Lucy Burns speaks to Albert Ng, who grew up in Kowloon Walled City, and urban designer Suenn Ho, who studied it before its demolition.

Radio waves and plants: The life of JC Bose

Sir Jagadish Chandra Bose was a polymath: a physicist, biologist and early writer of science fiction. He pioneered the investigation of radio and microwave optics. He made significant contributions to plant science, designing ingenious devices to measure plant growth and responsiveness. He founded one of India’s oldest and most distinguished research institutes. During his life he was honoured at home and in Britain he was knighted for his achievements and made a Fellow of the Royal Society. So why, outside India and his native Bangladesh, is J C Bose not better known?

Bridget Kendall asks four historians of science: Bose's biographer Subrata Dasgupta from Lafayette in the United States where he is emeritus professor at the University of Louisiana; Christin Hoene who is assistant professor at Maastricht University in the Netherlands where one of her research interests is the cultural history of radio in colonial India; author, film-maker and historian of science Jahnavi Phalkey who is the Founding Director of Science Gallery in Bangalore, India; and James Poskett who is associate professor at the University of Warwick and author of Horizons: A Global History of Science.

Book lovers unite: The bookish boy who became a boxing champion

Boxer Michael Bentt never wanted to fight, he'd always rather read, but he managed to climb to the top of his profession. He became the heavyweight champion of the world in 1993. And that was just the beginning of his remarkable journey. Michael was inducted into the New York State Boxing Hall of fame last month. He spoke to Neal Razzell in 2019.

Jose Alberto Gutierrez is a rubbish collector from Colombia who has a rather interesting collection of books. He's rescued thirty thousand of them from the trash cans of Bogota and he's created a special library for the local children. Dimitri O'Donnell went meet Jose and some of his customers in 2017.

Best-selling German author Helmut Rellergerd has written several crime novels about his most famous creation, British detective John Sinclair – but has never been to London, where the stories are all set. Reporter Amy Zayed met Helmut in 2020 to explore the cult around the author who for years didn’t reveal his real identity.

Extreme heat death risk in Latin America

A new analysis of deaths in cities across Latin America suggests rising global temperatures could lead to large numbers of deaths in the region and elsewhere in the world. Even a 1-degree rise in extreme heat can add 6% to the risk of dying. Lead researcher Josiah Kephart at Drexel University tells Roland Pease the lessons from Latin America should apply to cities across the global south.

Brazilian ecologist Andreas Meyer talks about the troubling prospects for the health of ecosystems, particularly in tropical regions, if the world does not cut its fossil fuel emissions hard and fast in the next few years.

In the USA, a team of engineers and neurosurgeons are developing a radical new approach for targeted pain relief – in the first instance, for patients recovering from surgery. It’s a flexible implant that wraps around a nerve and cools it to prevent it from transmitting pain signals. What’s more, says bioengineer John Rogers, the implant is made of a material designed to have dissolved safely into the body by the time its pain-killing work is done.

Geologist Bob Hazen has spent more than a decade producing a new classification system for the 5,700 minerals known to exist on the Earth. It improves on the pre-existing scheme by taking into account the myriad ways that many minerals have come into being. He tells Roland that this new way of categorising minerals lays bare a 4.5 billion-year history of remarkable chemical and biological creativity.

US Supreme Court limits Biden's power to cut emissions

Joe Biden's climate strategy suffers a major setback after the US Supreme Court rules that the Environmental Protection Agency doesn't have the authority to set standards on polluting emissions from existing power plants. A White House spokesperson says the ruling is a "devastating decision," we ask the BBC's John Mervin about the potential consequences.

Global markets close after one of their worst performances in decades. As investors brace for further losses and even the prospect of a recession in the United States, we hear from FHN Financial's analyst Chris Low about their concerns.

The Chinese President Xi Jinping has been visiting Hong Kong to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the British handover. As part of the deal, the city was meant to enjoy a high degree of autonomy until 2047 when it would become a fully integrated part of China. But critics say Beijing hasn't allowed Hong Kong residents to maintain those freedoms. We hear from Herbert Chow, a Hong Kong-based businessman.

Unilever has sold the ice cream brand Ben & Jerry's to an Israeli licensee, opening the door for the dessert to be sold in the Palestinian territories. Ben & Jerry's has criticised its parent company for the decision. We speak to Michael Dickson, the executive director of Stand With Us - a pressure group that campaigns against boycotts.

Faith in science

CERN, in Geneva, is the most complex scientific experiment in the world. It has just restarted operating after a break, and is celebrating the 10th anniversary of detecting the Higgs Boson, a particle that is the final piece in the jigsaw of the standard model of physics. It explains how particles acquire mass. Without mass, there would be no matter and we wouldn’t be here.

The Large Hadron Collider at CERN was designed to find this Higgs boson, and smashes particles at almost the speed of light in a tunnel deep underground to discover new particles. It attempts to explain how the Big Bang worked. We go underground to visit one of the enormous detectors at the famous Large Hadron Collider and talk to young scientists from different parts of all the world who, despite looking for scientific answers to how the universe began, still believe devoutly in a creator.

Among the other contributors are the designer of the LHC itself, Lyn Evans; physicists with and without faith who have been at CERN from the early days; a scientist who studies anti-matter and other members of CERN staff, old and new. Faith in Science is presented by Elin Rhys, a scientist raised as a Baptist, who struggles with not knowing the answer to what was there before The Big Bang and tries to discover how scientists with a faith square this with their research into why we exist.

Hong Kong: Abandoned children

In the 1950s and '60s hundreds of thousands of Chinese people fled to the British colony of Hong Kong to escape famine. Conditions for the arrivals were so desperate that some families chose to abandon their children in the streets so they would be taken in by orphanages. Many were adopted in homes in Britain and other English-speaking countries. Laura FitzPatrick talks to one of the adopted children, now known as Debbie Cook.

Afghanistan's challenges after US withdrawal

A 5.9 magnitude earthquake last week in Afghanistan destroyed hundreds of homes and left around 1,000 people dead - including at least 155 children. The country, now ruled by the Taliban, was already struggling to feed and provide health services to its people just 10 months after the United States and its allies completed their hasty withdrawal. The UN says millions are going hungry and the hospital system is on the brink of collapse. Meanwhile the Taliban are subject to global sanctions and Afghan central bank reserves remain frozen after the fall of the Western-backed government. The Taliban’s decision in March to bar teenage girls from schools has divided opinion in the group and created headaches for organisations keen to work more closely with the Afghan government in order to improve the lives of citizens. So, is it possible to help the people of Afghanistan without helping the Taliban? Or is that approach wrong and should donors and governments just work alongside them?

Hong Kong: how has doing business changed 25 years after handover?

On the 25th anniversary of Hong Kong's transfer from British to Chinese rule, we ask how things have changed for businesses in the territory. Speaking at an event to mark the occasion, President Xi said the "one country two system" model of ruling Hong Kong must continue. He also oversaw the inauguration of Hong Kong's new pro-Beijing leader John Lee. Bloomberg's Asia Government Correspondent, Rebecca Choong Wilkins gives her insight into the day's events and looks at what the future holds for businesses in Hong Kong.

Hong Kong: Marking 25 years in China's control

As Hong Kong marks the 25th anniversary of the day it was returned from British to Chinese control we take a closer look at who its new pro-Beijing leader is and hear from young Hong Kong voices on what they think their future holds.

We’ll also be hearing a conversation between young Russians, as the war in Ukraine continues. They'll tell us what it feels like growing up in what has suddenly become the most sanctioned country in the world and how they feel about their futures there.

We'll get the latest lines from our Ukraine correspondent, as officials say at least 20 people, including one child, have died in overnight Russian missile strikes on Ukraine's southern Odesa region.

Ruja Ignatova, also known as the "missing Cryptoqueen", has been placed on the FBI's top 10 most wanted list. The Bulgarian woman is wanted for her alleged role in running a cryptocurrency scam known as OneCoin and is accused of using the scheme to defraud victims across the world out of more than $4bn. We’ll speak to one of the producers of the BBC’s own podcast on the story “The Missing Cryptoqueen” to learn how important this latest update is in the search for the mysterious businesswoman.

Young Russians: Growing up under sanctions

We’ll be hearing a conversation between young Russians, as the war in Ukraine continues.

We'll get the latest lines from our Ukraine correspondent, as officials say at least 20 people, including one child, have died in overnight Russian missile strikes on Ukraine's southern Odesa region.

What is healthy hair?

Hair is an important part of our identities – straight, frizzy, long, not there at all – and our
efforts to keep it styled and clean have created an $80 billion hair care industry. Many
products offer to improve the life of the stuff on our heads, but isn't it all just dead
protein?

CrowdScience listener Toria wants to know what 'healthy' hair really means. To untangle
the science behind hair, we zoom in to see how hair grows from the follicles in our scalp
and explore how the hair growth process will change over our lifetimes.

Changes in our hair and disorders affecting the scalp can often have emotional impacts
on our lives, as presenter Marnie Chesterton learns from a dermatologist who
specialises in hair issues.

Having been on a journey with her own hair in recent years following chemotherapy,
Marnie is ready for a new 'do and ventures to the hair salon to find out about the health
of her own hair.

Meanwhile, another CrowdScience listener, Lucy, wonders why humans lost hair (or fur)
on most of our bodies when most other mammals are covered in the stuff. A biological
anthropologist who studies not only why hair became concentrated on our heads, but
also why there's so much diversity in hair types across humans unpacks the
evolutionary benefits.

With all these different hair types, we ask: does different hair need different care? And
when it comes to shampoo, conditioner, washing, blowdrying and dyeing – what should

we be doing to keep our hair structure sound?

As we learn about this strange nonliving feature of our bodies, Marnie finds a new
appreciation for the "dead strands of protein sticking out of our skin". And with listener
Toria's help and advice, she also finds a new shade for her chemo-curled locks.

Presented by Marnie Chesterton and produced by Sam Baker for BBC World Service.
