A new phase in the Covid pandemic

After two-and-a-half years of Covid rampaging across the planet, causing millions of deaths and transforming billions of lives, everyone is keen to move on. But this week the head of the World Health Organization warned the public that the pandemic is “nowhere near over” and that with cases rising 30% over the past fortnight we must collectively “push back”. This assessment comes after many governments have pulled back on testing and removed restrictions such as the requirement to wear masks in certain public spaces. England’s former Deputy Chief Medical Officer says the lethality of Covid-19 is now getting closer to that of the seasonal flu, so how should we adapt to the next phase of the pandemic? Vaccines have prevented many people from getting seriously ill and dying, but only in countries with ready access to jabs and high vaccination rates. The UN estimates roughly 72% of people in high income countries have received at least one dose of a coronavirus vaccine, but the figure for low-incomes nations is roughly 18%. How much progress has been made in the fight against Covid-19 and what will the next phase of the pandemic look like?

Biden's Saudi balancing act

President Joe Biden is on a peacemaking mission in the Middle East, where he's met with Saudi Arabia's crown prince. Mr Biden once pledged to make the country a global pariah. But does the need for oil detract from human rights concerns? We hear two perspectives on what the trip will achieve from Middle East analyst Sami Hamdi, and US financier Chris Lowe.

Countries around the globe are getting used to hotter temperatures. We hear how humans - and penguins - are being forced to adjust.

Kully Sandhu, an aviation recruitment specialist, explains why London's Heathrow is among the most difficult airports to travel through right now.

It's one of India's biggest cultural exports. But Bollywood fans are staying at home as the industry deals with the rise of streaming.

To discuss all these issues and more, Business Matters is joined by two guests from opposite corners of the world: in Malaysia, financial professional Jessica Khine; and Marketplace reporter Andy Uhler in Texas.

Sri Lanka crisis

In a week where protestors stormed the residences of its leaders, forcing the president to resign, Sri Lanka continues to faces its worst economic crisis in more than 70 years.

There have been months of shortages - from fuel and cooking gas to food and medicines. We hear from three doctors in the capital Colombo about running out of essentials such as HIV testing kits. One talks about paying for their patient’s cancer treatment out of their own pocket.

Another doctor advises: “Do not get sick. Stick to your routine medications. Don’t skip any medicines. Don’t climb heights unnecessarily. Take care of yourselves and only, if it’s really necessary, come to the hospital because we are running low on supplies.”

Host James Reynolds also hears from two Sri Lankans about coping among constant shortages. One was queuing for four days and nights to ensure he had enough petrol in his car to take his wife, who is seven months pregnant, to hospital in case of an emergency.

The Bomb

Who was Klaus Fuchs, the man who stole the bomb? How did a prodigious young talent at the beginning of a promising academic career, evolve into a fully committed Soviet spy, with access to one of the most secretive areas of science and Britain’s national defence?

Journalist Rosa Ellis grew up hearing stories about her great aunt, Ursula Kuczynski, aka Agent Sonya, Klaus Fuchs’ handler. Rosa wants to find out how Fuchs and her aunt came to cross paths, and how their partnership changed the course of history.

Fuchs comes of age in Nazi Germany, but his scientific brilliance offers him an escape: to England. An ‘enemy alien’ with Communist leanings, he’s soon shipped off to Canada, where he falls into the Soviet espionage web, and upon his return to England, his double life begins. At the same time, another German emigre and scientist, Rudolf Peierls, seeks a trustworthy assistant and a brilliant scientist for the burgeoning British atomic bomb project. So begins a human chain reaction with devastating potential.

Fuchs soon finds himself in the belly of the beast, assisting Peierls on the bomb whilst simultaneously slipping secrets to Agent Sonya, aka Ursula Kuczynski, Rosa’s great aunt and the Red Army’s leading intelligence officer in Britain.

Fuchs and Peierls’ friendship grows stronger and the two are quickly snapped up for the new US atomic effort. Suspicions are raised about Fuchs and his double life suddenly becomes even more dangerous, as his espionage skills are put to the test.

Finally MI5 begin to close in on both Fuchs and Ursula, and top interrogator Skardon pushes their loyalties to the limit. Will Fuchs reveal himself to his closest friends, the Peierls, who trusted him enough to let him stay under their roof? Or will he remain loyal to the cause, and die with his secrets?

Eating out: Should service charge be mandatory?

The practice of tipping is widespread across the world. But when to tip, how much and to whom are questions that often stump people. For example, in the US, it is customary to tip a restaurant server anywhere between 15-25%. In Japan, however, tipping is considered rude.

But should restaurants be collecting a mandatory service charge, irrespective of whether you are happy with the service you have received? This has become the core of an unsavoury debate in India, after a government order banned restaurants from levying a default service charge on food bills. The restaurant association is challenging this ban, saying it isn’t illegal and that the amount is important for staff welfare. Many also argue that Indians are not always “generous tippers”.

So, should diners have the discretion to accept or reject charges beyond their food bill? And will removing a service charge hurt an industry already suffering from the ill-effects of the pandemic?

In this edition of WorklifeIndia, we discuss whether a service charge should be mandatory when eating out.

Poliça's Channy Leaneagh, Erika Dohi, Real Estate's Martin Courtney, Twin Shadow and Bessie Turner discuss the creative process during the pandemic, learning to not put too much pressure on themselves, and what dream concept album they would make if they had infinite time and resources

Channy Leaneagh has played violin in folk-rock bands, played as part of 25-piece Minnesotan indie-rock group Gayngs, and collaborated with Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon. In 2011 she founded the band Poliça, who fuse elements of RnB, experimental indie, dance music, and electronic sounds.

Musicians championing indigenous languages

According to the United Nations, optimistic estimates suggest that at least half of today’s over 7,000 spoken languages will be extinct or seriously endangered by the end of this century.

2022 sees the start of the United Nations International Decade of Indigenous Languages, drawing global attention to the critical situation faced by many languages and advocating for their preservation and promotion.

One of the people championing first nation languages is Clint Bracknell. He’s a musician, singer and songmaker, and releases his music under his Noongar name, Maatakitj. Clint is also a Professor of Indigenous Languages in Australia. Clint has teamed up with multi–ARIA Award winning dance producer Paul Mac to release an album sung in Noongar, called Noongar Wonderland’.

Renata Flores has been described as “Peru’s queen of Quechua rap,” combining trap, hip-hop, and electronic influences with Andean instruments. When she was only 14 her Quechua cover of Michael Jackson’s “The Way You Make Me Feel”, got over one million views. Now writing her own songs in Quechua, she uses this urban music to teach young people this ancient language. Renata told our reporter Constanza Hola about her passion for her language.

Singer-songwriter Cina Soul is from Accra, Ghana and performs in Ga. Her songs are infused with Highlife, Soul and R&B. Although Ga was originally spoken in the Ghanaian capital, now languages such as Twi have taken over the cultural scene. Cina tells Tina Daheley how she’s been bringing the Ga language and culture back to the mainstream.

Julie Fowlis is an award winning folk singer who grew up on the Scottish outer Hebridean island of North Uist. She’s a leading exponent for the Scots Gaelic language and traditions, thanks to performances around the world, and even on the soundtrack of Disney Pixar’s film, Brave.

First images from the James Webb Space Telescope

Roland Pease talks to two astronomers who began working on the James Webb Space Telescope more than two decades ago and have now seen the first spectacular results of their labours. Marcia Rieke of the University of Arizona and JWST's senior project scientist John Mather discuss the highlights of the first four images.

Also in the programme, geologists discover precisely where on the Red Planet the most ancient Martian meteorite came from - we speak to Anthony Lagain whose detective work identified the crater from which the rock was ejected into space. And what causes vast areas of the Indian Ocean to glow with strange light - a rare and mysterious phenomenon known as 'milky seas'? The world is a step closer to understanding this centuries' old maritime enigma thanks to the crew of a yacht sailing south of Java, atmospheric scientist Steven Miller and marine microbiologist Kenneth Nealson.

We are running out of ammunition against certain infections, as bacteria increasingly evade the antibiotics we’ve relied on for nearly a century. Could bacteriophages – viruses that hunt and kill bacteria – be part of the solution?

In 2019, CrowdScience travelled to Georgia where bacteriophages, also known as phages, have been used for nearly a hundred years to treat illnesses ranging from a sore throat to cholera. Here we met the scientists who have kept rare phages safe for decades, and are constantly on the look-out for new ones. Phages are fussy eaters: a specific phage will happily chew on one bacteria but ignore another, so hunting down the right one for each infection is vital.

Since then, we’ve lived through a pandemic, the medical landscape has been transformed, and interest in bacteriophages as a treatment option is growing throughout the world. We turn to microbiologist Professor Martha Clokie for updates, including the answer to listener Garry’s question: could phages help in the fight against Covid-19?

A recent spike in mass shootings has unnerved South Africans, as the attacks in Soweto and Pietermaritzburg didn’t seem straightforwardly criminal. Andrew Harding explains that with violence and xenophobia running high, while infrastructure languishes, many citizens feel increasingly nervous about their own safety – and wonder who the silent gunmen are working for.

Uzbekistan’s authorities cracked down hard when people in Karakalpakstan poured onto the streets to protest about moves to limit their region’s legal autonomy. There were violent clashes – leaving at least 18 people dead and hundreds wounded – as demonstrators fought security services. Since then, the state imposed a news blackout, arrested hundreds of suspected agitators, and brought in a night-time curfew. Joanna Lillis first visited the region 20 years ago and returned to report on what sparked the recent unrest.

Since the assassination of former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, the tributes to his leadership and his character have poured in from all over the world. He won respect for his determination to 'stand up to China' – and his belief that Japan needed to stand up for itself more on the world stage. But as Rupert Wingfield-Hayes explains, Abe’s perspective on Japan’s past was a very particular one – and not all Japanese felt comfortable with his outspoken style or his view of their history.

And as the summer heat beats down on the Mediterranean, with record temperatures already recorded in some spots, and wildfires starting to break out, Amy Liptrot explores some ideas on how to protect Algeria’s countryside from more blazes this year. In August and September 2021, dozens of Algerians died in forest fires. So what can be done to protect the landscape and the people of the Tell Atlas mountains in future?

Shrimps, saris and guns

Deep in the jungles of Bangladesh, a small group of women secretly practise army-style drills. This small team, made exclusively of female village residents, are fighting a global economic force - the world’s insatiable appetite for shrimp. The BBC's Faarea Masud investigates as the demand for shrimp is destroying the land the women have farmed for centuries, and they are willing to do everything they can to protect it from the illegal intensive farming which renders their farmland rapidly unusable. With allegations of payments made to corrupt officials to turn a blind eye, and with little financial clout themselves, the women have taken matters into their own hands in the battle with the global shrimp industry.

How the tigress of basketball fought back

Malebogo Molefhe is a trailblazing basketball player from Botswana. The only girl in a game played by boys, she was called the 'tigress' and rose to be captain of her country's first ever women's national basketball team. But off the court she was controlled and abused by her partner, culminating in a brutal attack where he shot her eight times, leaving both her legs paralysed. Traumatised and with life-changing injuries, Malebogo fought to reclaim her life - and to find a way back to basketball. (A longer version of this interview was first broadcast in September 2020.)

The power of group therapy

Therapy has been helping Boko Haram survivors and street youth in Liberia turn their lives around.

They’ve been giving Boko Haram survivors and others affected by conflict a safe space to talk about the horrific violence and trauma they have been exposed to.

In Liberia, a project called Sustainable Transformation of Youth in Liberia has been using cognitive behavioural therapy and a cash reward to turn young men away from crime. A new study has shown the scheme is working.

Conversion Norway-style

In 2007 Christian and Muslim leaders in Norway controversially recognised for the first time in modern history, the right to convert between the two faiths without harassment or impediment. They also called for all missionary work to be conducted “without force or manipulation".

The “Joint declaration on the freedom of religion and the right to conversion” was welcomed as an important contribution to inter-faith dialogue in the Scandinavian nation. But it was also seen by some Muslims as recognizing the right to abandon Islam, which is considered apostasy and punishable as a criminal offense in many Muslim countries. It was similarly criticised by some of Norway’s evangelical churches, which saw it as disavowing their central missionary role.

Reporter Maddy Savage travels to Norway to hear the stories of some of those who’ve chosen to convert from one of the two faiths to the other; and to ask whether the joint declaration played any role in their life changing decisions.

The Reclaimers

The reclaimers: Bronzes and Birmingham

Actor and musician Kema Sikazwe is on a mission to uncover his own personal history as he leaves the UK to return to his homeland of Zambia for the first time since he was three years old.

As Kema travels, he learns how museums are telling the uncomfortable stories behind some of the objects in their collection. He joins pupils from his old primary school learning why The Great North Museum in Newcastle is offering to return an ancient musical instrument to Nigeria.
Arriving in Birmingham, Sara Wajid, co-director of Birmingham Museums explains how 'decolonising museums' goes way beyond returning objects. He also meets legendary photographer Vanley Burke, putting together a new exhibition with curator Candice Nembhard at the former home of a famous industrialist in Handsworth.

Meeting the young members of We Are Birmingham, Kema hears how they have been challenged to transform the iconic round room at Birmingham’s Museum and Art Gallery, and seeks their advice on how best to approach his own forthcoming journey.

Did organic farming cause Sri Lanka’s collapse?

Sri Lanka is now in the worst economic crisis they have seen in decades, schools are closed, fuel is in short supply, there are power cuts and a shortage of food. The President has been forced to resign and the political future of the country is uncertain.

But can the current problems be traced back to a decision to take the country’s food production completely organic?

In 2021 the President of Sri Lanka announced a total ban on chemical fertilizer and pesticides. Health concerns were given as a reason, but in the background was the pandemic, loss of tourism and a lack of natural fertilizer available in the country.

After protests the ban on chemical fertilizer was reversed, but had it already caused too much damage?

This week on The Inquiry we ask, did organic farming cause Sri Lanka’s collapse?

Taras Shevchenko: The slave who became a symbol of Ukrainian independence

There are hundreds of monuments to the poet and painter Taras Shevchenko not just in Ukraine but all over the world. It is hard to overstate the importance of Shevchenko for most Ukrainians. For them he is not just the national poet who breathed new life into the Ukrainian language but a symbol of their country’s independence. His words kept the national spirit alive during the decades of forced Russification in the 19th Century and they found renewed resonance during the 2014 Maidan uprising. But Shevchenko's work is less well known beyond eastern Europe.

To remedy this Bridget Kendall is joined by Ukrainian writers and literary scholars Olha Poliukhovych from the National University of Kyiv - Mohyla Academy and Mykhailo Nazarenko from Taras Shevchenko Kyiv National University, and by professor of Slavonic studies at Vienna University Michael Moser. The reader is Ivantiy Novak.

The mysterious particles of physics, part 2

Episode 2: Lost in the Dark

Physics is getting a good understanding of atoms, but embarrassingly they’re only a minor part of the Universe. Far more of it is made of something heavy and dark, so-called dark matter. The scientists who discovered the Higgs boson ten years ago thought they’d also create dark matter in the underground atom smasher at CERN. But they haven’t seen it yet. Roland Pease joins them as they redouble their efforts at the upgraded Large Hadron Collider, and travels to Boulby Underground Laboratory inside Britain's deepest mine, where subterranean telescopes hope to see dark matter streaming through the Galaxy.

Can we feed the world without using chemical fertilisers?

The development of agriculture some 12,000 years ago changed the way humans live.

As technologies have developed we’ve become more and more efficient at producing large amounts of food and feeding an ever growing population, often with the help of synthetically produced nitrogen fertiliser.

These fertilisers can damage ecosystems. They also produce a potent greenhouse gas called Nitrous Oxide which is 265 times more warming than carbon dioxide. It’s estimated that the manufacturing and use of this fertiliser contributes 2% of global greenhouse gas emissions. But is it feasible to ban synthetic nitrogen fertilisers or would that risk plunging the world into mass food insecurity?

Join presenters Qasa Alom and Graihagh Jackson as they journey from an urban garden in Sri Lanka, where a radical fertiliser ban caused chaos, to eastern Africa where Kenyan farmers are mixing tradition with new technology to try and save the world’s climate, and its soils.

Military contracts in India

Lots of people want to work in the military in India – the jobs offered security, prospects and a gold-plated pension. But a new Government plan to change military employment contracts has drawn criticism and led to protests. The Government say the changes will tackle the increasing cost of military pensions and stubbornly high unemployment across India.

Rahul Tandon and reporter Archana Shukla will explain why so many young people feel cheated by the plan to shorten military contracts and remove the right for many recruits to a pension. We hear from those attempting to get into the military, former officers, the Government and economists on the new contracts and ask what impact they could have on India's long standing youth unemployment problem.

Are viruses the key to fighting infections?

We are running out of ammunition against certain infections, as bacteria increasingly evade the antibiotics we’ve relied on for nearly a century. Could bacteriophages – viruses that hunt and kill bacteria – be part of the solution?

In 2019, CrowdScience travelled to Georgia where bacteriophages, also known as phages, have been used for nearly a hundred years to treat illnesses ranging from a sore throat to cholera. Here we met the scientists who have kept rare phages safe for decades, and are constantly on the look-out for new ones. Phages are fussy eaters: a specific phage will happily chew on one bacteria but ignore another, so hunting down the right one for each infection is vital.

Since then, we’ve lived through a pandemic, the medical landscape has been transformed, and interest in bacteriophages as a treatment option is growing throughout the world. We turn to microbiologist Professor Martha Clokie for updates, including the answer to listener Garry’s question: could phages help in the fight against Covid-19?

Swimming with polar bears – a photographer’s 'crazy' dream

The list of underwater predators that Amos Nachoum has photographed is long - it includes the Nile crocodile, the great white shark, orcas, anacondas and many other creatures that most of us would hope never to encounter. But for Amos that list was incomplete, his dream, his white whale, was to swim with a polar bear and photograph it. His first attempt went badly wrong, but it did not deter him and in 2015 he made his second attempt. He shares his account of that adventure with Outlook's Saskia Edwards.

The documentary about Amos’ expedition to swim with the polar bear is Picture of His Life by Dani Menkin and Yonatan Nir.

This programme was first broadcast in 2021.

Heatwave: Warnings of 'heat apocalypse' in France

Western France is facing a "heat apocalypse", experts have warned, as extreme temperatures continue to hit much of Europe. The heat has already caused much misery, with wildfires in Spain, Portugal, Croatia, Greece and France over the weekend. More than 1,000 people have died in Spain and Portugal... and many thousands have been evacuated from their homes. Will it become the norm?

Also in the programme: Ukraine's President Zelensky suspends two senior officials over accusations of treason within their organisations; and Ghanaian officials have confirmed the country’s first two cases of the highly infectious Marburg virus.

The smaller the thing you look at, the bigger the microscope you need to use.

But to dig deeper still into the secrets of the Universe, they’re already talking about another machine 4 times bigger, to be built by the middle of the century. Roland Pease asks if it’s worth it.

Feeling the heat: are global economies coping?

In Europe, much of the continent is in the grip of a heatwave; forest fires are raging in Spain, Portugal and France. China has also been struggling with sweltering summer heat. Our correspondents Jessica Parker and Guy Hedgecoe update us on the situation in south west France and Spain. Leah Stokes, an associate professor of Political Science at the University of California Santa Barbara, explains the impact of heat on the global economy.

White House economic adviser Jared Bernstein, has said he expects to see average gasoline prices falling below $4 a gallon in some places around the country in the coming weeks. Susan Schmidt, head of US equity at Exchange Capital Resources in Chicago, tells us more.

Sri Lanka's acting President has said the country's negotiations with the IMF over an emergency bailout are nearing conclusion. There has been no comment from the IMF, but there have been growing calls from Sri Lankan politicians for the organisation to heed the scale of the crisis. Felix Fernando, managing director of Omegaline Group and employs 14,000 people in Sri Lanka joins us.

Nursing matters

In Zambia, at the Lusaka College of Nursing and Midwifery, college head Dr Priscar Sakala-Mukonka is training the next generation of nurses in their new Critical Care department. Once qualified, her students will join a health care system that is critically short-supplied and short-staffed - not due not to a lack of new nurses, but due to a shortage of paid positions. Despite decades of investment, there is still only 13 nurses per 10,000 people in Zambia, compared to 175 in Switzerland. Many qualified nurses are officially unemployed, and those with jobs do the work of many.

Dr Priscar Sakala-Mukonka trained as a nurse herself in the 1980s in Zambia. Considering her work a vocation as much as a profession, she watched as many of her fellow graduates left the country, feeling demoralized and undervalued, to pursue nursing careers overseas. Since then, admissions to nursing schools have mushroomed, and new schools have opened to meet demand – but without further investment, a perpetual cycle of loss of talent and recourses seems possible.

Now, as European and North American countries once again ramp up their efforts to recruit Zambian nurses to fill Covid-19 related shortages, we ask what training and approach will keep this new generation of trained nurses in the country, and what motivates nurses to keep going, despite the unpredictable pay and difficult working conditions.

Joanne Harris - Writing Chocolat

Chocolat was Joanne Harris’s third novel, famously made into a film starring Juliette Binoche and Johnny Depp, bringing the writer worldwide recognition. Set in Southern France, it’s a darkly magical modern folk-tale, in which food, namely chocolate confections, plays a central part. Readers delighted in the story of Vianne Rocher and her six-year-old daughter, Anouk, who set up a chocolate boutique during Lent, right opposite the church, much to the annoyance of the village priest, Francis Reynaud. It’s an act that gently changes the lives of many of the villagers.

Having recorded the audio book in recent years, Joanne has revisited the novel, and the writing process behind it. In conversation with Dr Vic James, she reveals how she drew inspiration from her French heritage, why the themes of indulgence and guilt, motherhood and patriarchy are so present, and crucially, about the importance of chocolate to the story. They’re also joined by Laura Grandi who translated the novel into Italian, and has continued to work with Joanne ever since.

Saving kids with cancer

If your child develops cancer and you live in a wealthy country there’s a really good chance they will survive - more than 80%. If you live elsewhere, the chances are much lower - less than 30%.

Over a decade ago, Dr Mae Dolendo set up a centre in the Philippines to treat children with cancer. Since then she’s saved the lives of hundreds of children who’ve received treatment for free. Now others are replicating her trailblazing hospital.

We head to the Philippines to meet Dr Dolendo and see how she’s linking up with St Jude’s paediatric cancer team in the US — one of the best of its kind in the world. Doctors from the team provide expertise remotely, enabling Dr Dolendo to save lives for a fraction of what it would normally cost.

How virtual reality is changing healthcare

By 2024, virtual reality is expected to reach a value of $1.2bn in the healthcare sector alone – and it’s already seeing adoption in major public healthcare bodies like the UK’s National Health Service. But many private businesses are the ones leading the change and working closely with hospitals, universities and pharmaceutical giants.

We speak three businesses in three different parts of the world to find out what they’re doing to change healthcare. We hear from Matthew Wordley, CEO of the Wales-based company Rescape Innovation, Vini Gusmao, who leads the Brazillian company Medroom, and also speak to Kensuke Joji, CEO of Jolly Good VR, based in Japan.

A 'dreamer', a Nasa contest and a robot called Stinky

In 2004, Oscar Vazquez was part of a robotics team made up of undocumented Mexican-American high school students from a poor area of Phoenix, Arizona. They entered their $800 invention – an underwater robot called Stinky – into a Nasa competition taking on high-budget creations by prestigious universities including MIT. Oscar's team attracted attention, but far from leading to opportunities in the world of tech and science for Oscar, instead raised questions about his immigration status and position in US society. The proposed DREAM Act would raise his hopes of citizenship and of achieving another ambition - serving in the US military.

This story is the subject of a documentary called Underwater Dreams, directed by Mary Mazzio and produced by 50 Eggs Films.

Self-driving cars on the horizon?

A recent amendment to a regulation by the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) will extend automated driving technology to 130 km/h. The regulation, which will come into effect in January 2023, will set the standard for car manufacturers to develop so-called "level 3" autonomous vehicle. Gareth speaks to Francois Guichard, who is leading UN regulations on vehicle automation, about what "level 3" really means, and when we will see these types of cars on the road. Also, Prof Jack Stilgoe tells us about the potential issues and implications of self-driving technology.

Robbed of mobile innovation
In many cities globally, urban robberies have become a familiar occurrence, so much so that many people have started to develop their own strategies to mitigate losing their mobile phone. In São Paulo, some leave their phones at home or take a second throw-away phone that they can give away instead, but there are more technological solutions as well. Expert contributor Angelica Mari tells us more, and shares why this is affecting the adoption of mobile phone innovation, in particular fintech.

Crypto adoption during Argentina's inflation crisis
In Argentina, rising inflation has become a growing issue. Economy minister Martin Guzman resigned earlier this month, and annual inflation is set to hit above 70%. In light of the peso's instability, some Argentines are deciding to invest in cryptocurrencies instead. Is this a safer bet? Could crypto adoption affect Argentina's economy? Our reporter Lucía Cholakian has been finding out more.

The programme is presented by Gareth Mitchell with expert commentary from Angelica Mari.

Women, sport and business: Media deals

In this episode of Business Daily, the latest in our series on women, sport and business, we’re looking at the media.

With women’s sport accounting for only around 5% of the total sports coverage globally, we’ll be finding out how some clubs and organisations are moving away from traditional media, and looking at digital and streaming to reach fans instead.

Reporter Sam Fenwick visits Burnley FC Women in the north of England. Last year they signed a ground breaking deal with TikTok to show every home game. And we hear from TikTok themselves – Rich Waterworth, General Manager for the UK and Europe explains what’s in it for them.

Sue Anstiss is the author of Game On: The unstoppable rise of women’s sport. She tells us fans of all sports are consuming content differently now, and if women’s sport gets it right, there could be a big opportunity in the digital market.

And Haley Rosen, founder and CEO of digital media company Just Women’s Sports explains her frustration at trying to set up a business in a growing marketplace which is lacking in investment and infrastructure.

Bringing my 10,000 kites from Kabul to England

Master kite-maker Sanjar Qiam was born in Aghanistan in 1981 and for the next three decades lived through some of the country's most turbulent times. But through it all, he continued to find a way to make and fly his beloved kites, even when they were banned under the Taliban. When he moved to Brighton on the south coast of England in 2011, Sanjar brought his wife and baby son...and 10,000 of his kites! Sanjar now hosts kite-making workshops across the UK and helped create Fly With Me - a kite festival taking place across Europe next month to celebrate Afghan culture and mark the first anniversary of the Taliban takeover.

Shanghai lockdown

After two months of a gruelling strict lockdown, Shanghai has emerged a changed city, some residents say. During the 65 toughest days, some were reduced to begging for food and pleading for access to their young children from whom they’d been separated. The regime wasn’t just brutal, some claim, it was largely fruitless, as the omicron strain of Covid continues to spread now. What’s more the economic fallout for China’s commercial capital, and key supply chains across the country and internationally, are only gradually becoming apparent. What’s the legacy of Shanghai’s zero-Covid experiment?

THU 04:32 The Food Chain (w3ct38n3)
Why use food for fuel?

Biofuels are a way to make our cars, lorries and even planes run on renewable fuel. They’re often made from food crops.

Globally 7% of cereal crops and 15% of vegetable oil crops are used to make biofuel – according to data from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the United Nation’s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).

As pressure on food prices and supply chains increase, some people are questioning why we turn food into fuel.

In this programme we’ll be looking at the history of biofuels, why food crops have been used, and what alternatives may exist. Joining us are Daniel Kammen, Professor of Energy at University of California, Berkeley, who is currently serving as a senior advisor for energy and innovation in the Biden administration in the United States; Bernardo Gradin, the founder and CEO of Gran Bio, a company that produces biofuel made from sugar cane waste in Brazil; and Sailaja Nori, Chief Scientific Officer at Sea6 Energy, a company investigating the possibilities of biofuel made from seaweed in India and Indonesia.

THU 08:06 The Inquiry (w3ct39t7)
What impact has Brexit had on the UK’s economy?

In 2016 Britain voted to leave the European Union. There were warnings that pulling away from the largest trade bloc in the world would be damaging to the UK’s finances. Those that campaigned for Brexit argued it would offer the UK self-determination and the freedom to forge its own trade relationships.

Who was right?

This week on The Inquiry we attempt to disentangle the numbers from the complications of the global pandemic and the war in Ukraine and ask, what impact has Brexit had on the UK’s economy.

Fertility problems and pesticides in Panama

Grace Livingstone investigates the ongoing case a group of men in Panama have brought against banana firms. We hear from two of the men who claim they were made sterile after handling a pesticide in their jobs on banana plantations.

United States companies used a pesticide called DBCP on banana plantations in Latin America in the late 1970s, even though the United States restricted and then banned its use in mainland America because of the health risks. We ask why – even today - pesticides that are outlawed in one country can still be exported and used abroad.

La Malinche: Mexico's great 'traitor'

In Mexico the name La Malinche has become synonymous with treachery and betrayal - it even forms one of the country’s most vicious insults. Some have described its owner, an indigenous slave who became the interpreter and mistress of conquistador Hernán Cortés, as the most hated woman in Mexico’s history.

But by helping the Spanish topple the Aztecs in the early sixteenth century was she really guilty of selling out her own people, or simply doing everything she could to survive? Might we credit her with limiting the lives lost in the bloody conflict – one she knew her people could not hope to win?

Bridget Kendall explores the little-known life, and hotly-contested legacy of one of the most controversial figures in Latin American history, and the role she played in the meeting of the Old World and the New.

We hear how La Malinche’s story, and motives, have been re-interpreted over the last 500 years, and learn why she remains important in discussions of national identity, gender, culture and politics in Mexico to this day.

The maid-turned-rapper taking on racism in Brazil

Preta-Rara is a Brazilian rapper, author, historian – and former maid. In 2016, when she wrote a post on social media about her time as a domestic worker, it went viral, sparking an avalanche of responses from maids all over Brazil sharing stories of the racism, exploitation and abuse they'd experienced at work. She quickly found herself the de facto spokesperson for a movement – using the platform she has in the music industry and on social media to challenge views about domestic work, racism and body shaming in Brazil.

The singer known as Dona Onete proves it's never too late to follow your dreams. She made her first record in 2012 at the age of 73. Since then, the Brazilian great-grandmother has been performing in the US and Europe and touring her home country. Outlook's Gibby Zobel spoke to her in 2017.

Robert Darden is an American professor who's dedicated his life to preserving gospel music. Over the years he's collected 8,000 songs, digitised them and made them available to the public. This interview was first broadcast in 2017.

Heat waves in the Northern Hemisphere

The extreme heat wave in western Europe over the last couple of weeks is just one of many in the Northern Hemisphere in 2022. How is global warming changing the atmosphere to make heat waves more frequent and more intense? We talk to climatologists Hannah Cloke, Friederike Otto and Efi Rousi.

If we want to stabilise global warming to two degrees by the end of the century, how are we going to do that? One novel idea is to harness the world's vast railway infrastructure and equip freight and passenger trains with an additional special wagon or two. These extra cars would be designed to suck carbon dioxide out of the air, liquify it and transport it to sequestration sites. Critically all the energy to capture the carbon dioxide comes free from regenerative braking on the trains. University of Toronto chemist Geoff Ozin and Eric Bachman, founder of the start-up CO2 Rail, explain the vision.

On the 40th anniversary of the International Whaling Commissions announcing an end to commercial whaling, we hear from Greenpeace co-founder Rex Weyler about the high seas campaign in the 1970s that helped prevent the extinction of the great whales. He talks about the contribution to the cause made by the discovery of whale song, and the release of humpback whale recordings as a commercial disc.

How do I explain this?

Writer and poet Nikita Gill and sitar virtuoso and composer Anoushka Shankar are friends and collaborators whose life stories share many parallels. In this programme, recorded sitting with tea and doughnuts on the floor of a child’s bedroom, they share an intimate conversation about a moment of spiritual awakening.

Nikita reflects on the idea that awakenings or epiphanies often follow a challenging or traumatic phase of life. She recalls a series of personal experiences which compelled her to take a train north and walk all through the night and into dawn. She describes how she returned from this experience a changed person.

Anoushka describes how a build up of stressful experiences pushed her to a breaking point which also became a spiritual calling.

Together the women reflect on the idea that these moments are a profound part of the story arc of our lives, forcing us to confront our deepest values and setting us on a new path. They share how the experience led to new wisdoms and spiritual practices.

Can our cities survive climate change?

Europe was this week hit by an extreme heatwave exacerbating drought conditions and sparking wildfires in France, Spain, Italy, Greece and Portugal. The UK also broke its record temperature exceeding 40C. All this just weeks after flooding caused widespread disruption in Sydney, Australia. Scientists agree that reducing greenhouse gas emissions is key to limiting the severity of climate change. But the planet has already warmed by 1.1C above pre-industrial levels and temperatures are expected to continue rising. More than half of the world’s population live in cities and that figure is expected to rise to 68% by 2050. Extreme heat, droughts, wildfires, storm surges and flooding - both inland and along coastlines - will increasingly cause damage and deaths. So, how can we make cities more resilient to the inevitable impacts of a warming planet? What obstacles are preventing greater action? And will the rich world protect itself while poorer communities are left to fend for themselves?

Deal reached over Ukrainian grain supplies

Turkey says it's brokered a deal with Russia to allow grain shipments from Ukraine to restart. Hunger charities welcome the progress, but say it won't address the immediate world food crisis.

Elsewhere, in an exclusive interview with World Business Report, the head of the Port of Los Angeles explains how the FBI has been drafted in to fight a huge rise in attempted cyber attacks.

What can end the Nigerian university strikes?

Professors in Nigeria's public universities have been on strike for almost six months. They are disagreement with the federal government over pay, university facilities, and welfare. So how has this strike affected professors and the students? And what can be done to end the strike? We'll bring together a student and professor to find out.

Also, Turkey has brokered a deal with Russia to unblock exports of grain from Ukraine through the Black Sea. Ukraine is one of the world's largest grain producers and Russia has been blockading its major Black Sea ports. The world shortage of Ukrainian grain has sent food prices soaring and left millions at risk of hunger. We'll speak to our correspondent to hear the latest.

And, security forces in Sri Lanka raided the main anti-government protest camp in the capital early on Friday, arresting protesters and dismantling tents. Hundreds of troops and police commandos moved on the protesters outside the presidential offices in Colombo, hours before they were due to leave the area. A BBC video journalist was beaten by the army and one soldier snatched his phone and deleted videos. We'll speak to our correspondent who was there.

Why is this song stuck in my head?

You have probably experienced an ‘earworm’ - a catchy bit of music that plays round and round in your head and won’t go away – at least for a short while. But why did it pop up in the first place and how did it get stuck?

CrowdScience listener Ryota in Japan wants us to dig into earworms, so presenter Datshiane Navanayagam bravely puts on her headphones to immerse herself in the world of sounds that stick. She meets with a composer of children’s songs as well as music psychologists to find out if there is a special formula to creating catchy songs and probes if this musical brain quirk serves any useful purpose. Datshiane then explores whether some people are more prone to catching earworms than others. Finally, for those who find this phenomenon disturbing - she asks is there a good way of getting rid of them?

Come join us down the audio wormhole - disclaimer - the BBC is not responsible for any annoying earworms caused by this broadcast.

Presented by Datshiane Navanayagam and produced by Melanie Brown

Interviewees:
Kelly Jacobowski – Assistant Professor in Music Psychology, Durham University
Bill Sherman – Musical Director of Sesame Street
Ashley Burgoyne – Computational Musicologist, University of Amsterdam
