SAT 00:06 The Real Story (w3ct33p5)
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?

Extreme heat

As temperature records are broken around the world. People around world share with host James Reynolds how to negotiate the warm weather and how the heat is affecting their lives.

“It’s 37 degrees here right now,” says Allison in Doha, Qatar, “but we’re at 59% humidity so it’s feeling like 52 degrees outside. If you can imagine just stepping outside into a sauna, that’s basically what it’s like.”

Allison discusses her experiences with Julia in Brittany, France, and Alia, a doctor in Lahore, Pakistan. Her hospital has seen many people already admitted with heatstroke with some dying as a result. They also share how to keep cool and there are messages with similar advice from people living in Uganda, Saudi Arabia and Trinidad and Tobago.

Experts agree that climate change is responsible for the extreme weather and two meteorologists - Nokuthula Khwela in South Africa and Isabel Moreno in Spain - explain how they communicate the science to their audiences. A TV audience, for instance, requires a different approach to readers of a book.

“You have to try not to talk about only science and data,” says Moreno, who is also a TV host in Madrid. “We are talking about climate change from a health point of view. Here in Spain, we estimate that almost 500 people could have died because of heat during this week. So it’s about mortality.”

The bomb

It is 1944. Russia and America are racing for the bomb, but neither competitor knows who is in the lead.

Klaus Fuchs arrives in Los Alamos to begin work on the Manhattan Project. He is closer to the action than ever before. But security here is higher than it was back in England and Fuchs is frustrated to find that the secrets the Soviets need are still out of reach.

As the pressure builds, Fuchs must put his skills in both science and espionage to the test. In the process, he’ll put his own family in danger.

In 1946, Fuchs returns to Britain a man very different to the one that left; older, more confident, and an indispensable part of the British scientific establishment. He begins to settle down, find friends, and make a life for himself. Little by little, he leaves espionage behind.

But all the while, the British intelligence services are closing in on both him and his handler, Ursula Kuczynski, presenter Rosa Ellis’ great aunt. Top interrogator, Jim Skardon, is tasked with interrogating Ursula. It’s a battle of wits that will put Fuchs at risk of being exposed.

SUN 01:06 The Science Hour (w3ct39zf)
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.

And, 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.

Learning to live with danger in Ukraine

Pascale Harter introduces stories of war, violence and loss – and some love - from Ukraine, Ethiopia and Russia.

Russian missiles are still striking cities in Ukraine – even those far from the frontlines in the Donbas. The recent attack on Vinnytsia wounded hundreds of people, and killed at least 23 – including several children. Sarah Rainsford was there to report on the aftermath and noted how accustomed Ukrainians have become to living with daily, lethal risks all around them.

Ethiopia’s government has exercised tight control over the media since conflict broke out in its northern Tigray region in November 2020. Some reporters have been denied permission to enter the country – let alone the areas where fighting was most intense; others have been deported if their coverage didn’t satisfy state diktats. But viral videos of brutal incidents have circulated widely inside Ethiopia on social media. Kalkidan Yibeltal has seen too much – both at first-hand while reporting, and via the images which have spread across phone and computer screens.

Steve Rosenberg unfolds the story of a friendship made in Moscow – between a newsman and a newspaper vendor. As BBC correspondent in Russia, he always has to stay well informed, and read widely from the Russian press . But it turned out there was almost as much for him to learn from the woman who sold him his daily newspapers and magazines as there was from the publications themselves. As Valentina locks up her kiosk for the last time, Steve reflects on the hopes, dreams and fears she shared with him during their daily conversations.

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.

SUN 08:32 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.

My mother, India’s forgotten disco diva

In 2014, Debayan Sen was cleaning the family attic in Kolkata when he made an unexpected discovery: a dusty, old vinyl record called Disco Jazz. What astonished him was that his mother Rupa was on the cover. Debayan had no idea his very traditional Indian mother had even had a music career. Not only would that album reveal Rupa’s secret disco past but also an underground fanbase of millions worldwide. (This interview was first broadcast in June 2021)

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 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.

The Reclaimers

The reclaimers: Return to Zambia

Returning to Zambia for the first time since he was three years old, Kema Sikazwe continues his journey exploring the impact of colonial legacies through museum collections.

Since 1972, Zambians have campaigned to reclaim the ‘Broken Hill Skull’ from Britain. Kema learns what has led to the current stalemate, as the repatriation movement gathers pace.

Kema also meets Zambian creatives who are fabricating their own interpretations of history with ‘digital repatriation’ initiatives, creating new artefacts in response to stories inspired by 3D scans and photographs.

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.

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?

Russia admits strike hitting port of Odesa

Russia has admitted carrying out a strike on what it says were military targets in the Ukrainian port of Odesa.

Will the recent deal to resume Ukrainian grain exports be able to stick after the attack on the port through which much of the grain would pass? We hear from the Russian political scientist, Sergei Markov, who is close to the Kremlin.

Also in the programme: A pilgrimage of penance for the Pope as he heads to Canada to apologize for the abuse of tens of thousands of children in schools run by the Roman Catholic Church; and China comes a step closer to completing its first space station.

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.

MON 02:32 The Climate Question (w3ct3kj6)
Can flying ever be climate friendly?

Since the 1990s, air flight has made the world a smaller place. In one 24-hour period you can fly to the other end of the globe. In an hour you might be able to skip the traffic and fly to the other end of your country.

But this convenience comes at a cost….to the climate. Aviation accounts for somewhere between 2 to 5% of the world’s emissions. And as the world’s desire to travel proves insatiable, the number of planes in the sky each day is only increasing.

The aviation industry has aspirational plans to decarbonise using sustainable and/or synthetic aviation fuels. But these are currently some way off. In the meantime, airlines are offering carbon offsets.
Offsets are controversial products and only 1% of passengers pay for them. So, this week on The Climate Question we are asking, can flying ever be climate friendly?

Presenters Neal Razzell and Merlyn Thomas speak with the following contributors:
Jo Dardenne, Aviation Director at Transport & Environment
Souparna Lahiri, Climate Policy Advisor with The Global Forest Coalition
Simon Berrow, Chief Executive Officer of the Irish Whale and Dolphin Group

Searching for missing women

What would you do if a loved one went missing? Kim Chakanetsa talks to two women whose lives have been touched by a missing person’s case, and now help other families find answers.

Dr Chung Pham is an anti-trafficking specialist from Vietnam. When she was a teenager, she stopped the initial abduction of a schoolmate, who was later trafficked into China. After relocating to the UK, Chung became an advocate for unaccompanied asylum-seeking children, often victims of trafficking or modern slavery. This inspired her to join Locate International, a charity helping relatives of missing people find their loved ones.

Dr Michelle Jeanis is an assistant professor in the Criminal Justice department at University of Louisiana at Lafayette. Her research focuses on the best practices to help locate people who disappear and on the media coverage of missing people’s cases. She decided to study this topic after her friend’s sister, Mickey Shunik, disappeared in 2012.

How Kenyan farmers are adapting to climate change

Climate change - which the United Nations defines as long-term shifts in temperatures and weather patterns - is a growing global problem, particularly for farmers. A recent UN report found agricultural productivity growth in Africa has decreased by 34 percent since 1961. That's more than any other region in the world.

Michael Kaloki takes a road trip around Kenya, speaking to farmers about their struggles to grow crops with the increasingly unpredictable weather.

He asks Rachel Bezner Kerr, a professor at the Department of Global Development at Cornell University in the United States why climate change is happening and what the future holds.

He visits the organisations that are trying to help farmers adapt to climate change. Dr Ivan Rwomushana, from the non-profit inter-governmental organisation CABI, and Oliver Furechi from the charity Practical Action tell him what strategies and solutions they're teaching farmers.

Ukraine's Revolution on Granite

In 1990, Ukrainian students went on a hunger strike that helped bring down the Soviet regime there. It took place in Kyiv’s central square and inspired later protests against Russian influence in Ukraine: the 2004 Orange Revolution and the 2014 Maidan Revolution. The granite floor of the square provided its name: the ‘Revolution on Granite’. Ben Henderson spoke to Oksana Zabuzhko, an award-winning Ukrainian author, who participated in the protest when she was a recent university graduate.

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

The figure-skating star who fell to earth

Keri Blakinger spent her childhood and teenage years training as an elite-level figure skater in the US while also studying hard and doing well at school. But at 17 her skating dreams ended abruptly and she found herself unable to cope. Without the rigid structure of her athletic life, she found herself homeless, addicted to heroin and doing sex work and spent two years in prison for drug possession. But she later went back to university, retrained and is now an investigative reporter focusing on justice for prisoners.

Plant based promises, rise of the plant based burger

In Plant Based Promises, foodie, researcher and broadcaster Giles Yeo looks at the science behind plant based diets and the increasing number of plant based products appearing in supermarkets and restaurants. The market for plant based products could be worth $162 billion in the next ten years and Giles asks how sustainable and healthy the products are and the role they play in decreasing the world's carbon footprint.

Globally food production accounts for about 30% of greenhouse gases. In the UK we eat over six times the amount of meat and more than twice the amount of dairy products recommended to prevent the global temperature increasing more than 1.5 degrees C, after which extreme weather events become more severe. But eating less meat and dairy means new protein sources from plants are needed and how easy or practical is it for people to change their diets? Veganuary, where people pledge to go vegan for the month of January show that people are willing to change what they eat for a variety of reasons including animal welfare, sustainability and health.

In programme one Giles, an expert on food intake looks at some of the foods being developed to replace animal based foods and looks at alternatives to the iconic cheeseburger. Giles meets biochemist Professor Pat Brown founder of Impossible Burgers, a Silicon Valley start up making burgers from genetically modified yeast to replicate the taste of meat.

But from high tech to the artisanal, sisters Rachel and Charlotte Stevens missed eating cheese so much they are now making cheese alternatives using traditional moulds, cultures and aging techniques while replacing dairy ingredients with nuts.

Birmingham’s grassroots heroes

The 2022 Commonwealth Games is being hosted by the UK’s central city of Birmingham - ethnically diverse and where the age profile is younger compared to other British cities. It is home to many people with familial links to commonwealth member countries such as India and the Caribbean. As Birmingham welcomes 4,500 athletes from around the world, Nina Robinson talks to the city’s ‘Hometown Heroes’ - locals who have been recognised for their contribution to sport. These include wrestling coach, Ranjit Singh who has been teaching wrestling from his local Sikh Gurdwara for decades and Joan Hunter who has helped grow many generations of local netball players.

We also meet Jeevan Chaggar – the youngest person ever to be made Chair of an English Hockey Club and Salma Bi who founded the UK’s first South Asian women’s cricket team in the UK and has received the British Empire Medal for services to cricket and diversity in sport.
Will the Games leave a positive legacy worth keeping and how much relevance does the commonwealth as an institution hold for residents in 2022?

Using finance to fight homelessness

Bank accounts and clever investment schemes are being used to help improve the lives of homeless people.

In the UK, a number of banks have started offering accounts to homeless people - which until recently were only available to people with a fixed address.

Having a bank account can be a crucial turning point, and we meet a disabled homeless person in one of Britain's biggest cities, who's now able to receive welfare payments as a result.

We also hear from the city of Denver, Colorado, in the United States, where investors were invited to finance a scheme to house people classed as ‘chronically’ homeless.

If the scheme succeeded in saving money for the City council by keeping those people out of Emergency Rooms and police cells, the investors would get their money back - if the initiative failed, they'd lose their cash. Find out what happened on People Fixing the World.

Organisers are promising that it will be the most sustainable Commonwealth Games ever and will leave a carbon neutral legacy. That means any CO2 released into the atmosphere from the event will be balanced by an equivalent amount being removed.

Nisha Patel travels to Birmingham to speak to some of the people behind the games to get an insight into how they plan to achieve this and to find out how important the event is to the city.

The life and loves of the world's oldest drag queen

91-year-old Walter Cole still struts his stuff on stage as his alter ego Darcelle XV – now with a glitter-studded walker. Performing since 1969, Darcelle XV has broken the record as the world's oldest drag queen. Walter's story begins in a small mill town on America's west coast. He had a difficult childhood, but joining the military and marrying his high school sweatheart gave him new possibilities. Walter opened businesses in Portland, Oregon and one of them changed his life completely. He turned a rundown bar into a thriving cabaret venue and created Darcelle XV. Walter tells Outlook's Claudia Meza that immersing himself in the gay community helped him confront who he really was and how a dancer called Roxy became the love of his life. Walter has written a book about his life called: Just Call Me Darcelle.

Nims Purja was a member of the Gurkhas, the elite force of Nepalese soliders in the British Army. Their motto is 'better to die than be a coward' and in 2019 Nims set himself a fearless task - climbing all 14 of the world's 'death zone' mountains in record time. Part of his motivation was his mother, who was seriously ill. This interview was first broadcast in December 2020.

Grassroots data – holding the powerful to account

Open source investigators
We live in an age where there is data on almost everything, and a large chunk of it is publicly available. You only need to know where to look. There are many investigators on the internet that are gathering Open Source Intelligence, or OSINT for short, and conduct research and verification, much of it focussed on war zones. The most prominent collective in this field is the NGO Bellingcat, but there is a whole ecosystem of amateur sleuths online. Gareth speaks to Charlotte Godart who leads the volunteer programme at Bellingcat, on how they effectively crowdsource part of their investigations, and we hear from several hobbyists who rose to prominence on Twitter about why they spent much of their free time on this type of research.

Data tackling gun violence
Brazil has a gun violence issue, and a public data issue. In the Rio de Janeiro metropolitan area, there were, on average, 13 shootings every single day last year, and the only reason we know this is because of open data platform Fogo Cruzado. They collect data in real-time on shootings happening in Rio and other cities across Brazil via their app, social media, and public police reports, and they make that data publicly available for ordinary citizens, organisations, and journalists to use. The founder of Fogo Cruzado, Cecília Olliveira, explains how it all works, and how having data can help set the public agenda.

The blue map: environmentalist action in China
Only 10 years ago, Beijing was a city covered in smog with many residents opting to wear pollution masks. Now, the situation has, remarkably, improved, with blue skies being a normal sight. One possible reason for this drastic change is environmentalist Ma Jun, who, in 2006, started the blue map database aggregating government data and making it more easily accessible to the public. Since then, the blue map project has grown into an app that lets users check many types of environmental data and even contribute to the database themselves by simply taking a picture of a dirty river, a cloud of smog, or a factory that isn’t following environmental guidelines. Gareth speaks to Ma Jun, founding director of China’s Institute of Public & Environmental Affairs and founder of the Blue Map, about how this crowdsourcing approach works, and how environmental activism in China differs from Western countries.


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

IMF issues warning over global economy

As more countries are rocked by worsening debt and supply shocks, economists are increasingly concerned about the effects of war and the pandemic on global stability. To discuss the International Monetary Fund's latest forecast, we are joined by Liliana Rojas Suarez from the Centre for Global Development.

It's been a big week for tech earnings, with some surprising results. Brian Dorst from New Jersey-based Themis Trading gives us the latest analysis.

Russia has pledged to withdraw from the International Space Station. But do they mean it? Space commerce expert Keith Cowing has some reservations.

The reclaimers: Into the valley

Travelling from Lusaka to the Gwembe Valley and then on to Kabwe, Kema Sikazwe hears from people living in communities where artefacts were taken.

In the shadow of the Kariba Dam, Kema meets people who were forced from their land when the valley was flooded who explain how promises made at the time have not been kept.

Finally, at the lead-mining site where the Broken Hill Skull was discovered in Kabwe 1921, Kema meets former workers who describe how their homes remain contaminated, more than 25 years on, the UN estimates they are among 300,000 people living on toxic ground.

When violence did break out he dodged machete-wielding mobs to make it to safety. The mission to rescue his poetry almost cost him everything.

The Return of the Tigers

Tigers are making a remarkable comeback in Nepal. The small Himalayan nation is on track to become the first country to double its wild tiger population in the last decade. A new census will be released on International Tiger Day (29th of July). The recovery is the result of tough anti-poaching measures that have involved the military and the local community. Other iconic species including rhinos and elephant populations have also increased. But this has come at a cost, there has been an increase in tiger attacks on humans. Rebecca Henschke travels to Bardia national park, to find out what’s behind the conservation success and what it means for the community living with the Tigers.

THU 04:32 The Food Chain (w3ct38n4)
Fuelling a female footballer

Good quality nutrition is key to sporting success. But while plenty of research exists on the impact of nutrition on performance, most of it has been done on male athletes. That’s despite female athletes now making up nearly 50% of participants in professional sport.

In the case of female footballers, research shows they could be consuming only half the carbohydrates they need. Not eating enough – or under-fuelling – as it’s known in footballing circles – is thought to be endemic in the women’s game. Experts believe much of that is down to a lack of available information.

As the Women's Euros 2022 tournament raises the profile of women's football around the world, Ruth Alexander explores what it takes to fuel a female footballer and how focusing on the particular nutritional needs of sportswomen could make a huge difference to performance. She speaks to professional footballer, Ode Fulutudilu, a forward for the South Africa women’s national team, Aimee O’Keefe, performance nutritionist at Manchester United Women, Dr José Areta, lecturer in sports nutrition at Liverpool John Moore’s University in the UK, and Abbie Smith-Ryan, exercise physiologist and sports nutrition researcher at the University of North Carolina in the US.

Why did Tunisia turn its back on democracy?

Tunisian President Kais Saied has drafted a new constitution for Tunisia that gives him new sweeping powers, including authority over the judiciary and immunity for life from prosecution.

Tunisia was a beacon of hope for democracy after the Arab Spring. The country rid itself of dictator Ben Ali after 24 years of rule and moved to a more democratic system.

Now the country seems to be sliding back towards the one man rule that it has known for generations.

This week on The Inquiry we are asking why Tunisia has turned its back on democracy.

The women breaking into skateboarding in South Africa

Skateboarding is one of the fastest growing sports in the world; it was included for the first time in the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games in Japan. It's becoming increasingly popular among women and girls, but it does come with a price tag.

Hannah Mullane speaks to Boipelo Awuah, one of only two female African athletes to qualify to compete in skateboarding at the Tokyo Olympics. Wendy Gila, the head of the South African Roller Sports Association, gives us her insight into how much it costs to make a sport like skateboarding accessible to everyone.

Mark Sedgwick meets Thato Moet, Founder of IslandGals, a girls only skate group in Johannesburg. She gives her perspective on what it’s like to be a female skater in South Africa. We’ll also hear from Pieter Retief, who helps to build skateparks all over the world and explains how they help to bring together communities.

Eleonora Duse: The first great modern actress

Eleonora Duse was an actress ahead of her time. As a performer in the late 19th century when elaborate gestures, exotic costumes and lavish decors were the norm, Eleonora Duse stunned audiences with her truthfulness and intense absorption in the characters she played. She wore no make-up, you could see her blush or turn pale, she was a master of subtle body language and vocal modulation, and her aim was to eliminate the self and become her characters. Today she is often credited with having inspired modern acting, and the Russian theatre director Stanislavsky saw her as the perfect actress, and was greatly influenced by her when he created his acting method. Born in 1858 in what is now northern Italy, Eleonora Duse started acting at the age of four years old with her family’s touring theatre troupe. By her twenties, working as both a theatre manager and a performer, she began to achieve worldwide popularity, travelling all over the world, from South America to Russia to Egypt. She was soon acknowledged as one of the greatest actresses of her generation and her independent lifestyle turned her into an early feminist icon. So what was the secret of her genius and why is she largely forgotten today? And with no recordings of her voice, how do we know she was such a great performer?

Joining Bridget Kendall is Dr Anna Sica, Professor of Theatre at the University of Palermo in Italy, author of The Murray Edwards Duse Collection, and D’Amore e D’Arte, the letters written to Duse from her Russian lover Alexander Wolkoff, soon to be published in English. Professor Paul Fryer, the co-editor of an essay collection on Eleonora Duse and Cenere (Cenere is the Italian word for Ashes, the title of the silent film Duse made in 1916, and the only record of Duse actually performing). Paul Fryer also directs the Stanislavsky research centre at the University of Leeds. And Dr Enza de Francisci, lecturer in Translation studies at the University of Glasgow, who specialises in the critical reception of Duse’s plays, and is the author of A 'New' Woman in Verga and Pirandello: From Page to Stage.

The reader is Cecilia Gragnani.

A poet in a Burundi war zone, part 2

Content Warning: This episode contains graphic descriptions of violence

JP Bimeni's story continues... a writer turned soul singer, JP walked through a massacre unscathed as his country fell into conflict. A survivor of genocide aged just 16, he had a lot more living - and almost dying - to do. Now a successful performer, these experiences seep into his songs.

Margaret Keane, who died earlier this month, was the artist behind the popular Big Eyes paintings of the 1960s, but her husband Walter Keane bullied her into letting him take the credit for them. He made millions of dollars from them, until Margaret took him to court to prove they were her own. First broadcast in 2014.

Ukraine steps up counter-offensive to retake Kherson

The Ukrainian campaign to retake the occupied Kherson region is "gathering pace", Western military sources say. A key bridge into the city of Kherson is now out of action after Ukrainian forces struck it with long-range rockets supplied by the US. UK defence officials say the city is now "virtually cut off from other occupied territories".

Also in the programme, US Democratic senator Joe Manchin has stunned Washington by announcing sudden support for President Joe Biden's bill to raise corporate taxes, fight climate change and lower medicine costs.

And as Birmingham welcomes around 6,500 athletes for the Commonwealth Games, we look at how much sustainability can be woven into the Games.

The first galaxies at the universe's dawn

In the last week, teams of astronomers have rushed to report ever deeper views of the universe thanks to the James Webb Space Telescope. These are galaxies of stars more than 13.5 billion light years from us and we see them as they were when the universe was in its infancy, less than 300 million years after the Big Bang. As University of Texas astronomer Steve Finkelstein tell us, there are some real surprises in these glimpses of the cosmic dawn. The super-distant galaxy that Steve's group has identified is named after his daughter Maisie.

Also in the programme: a 550 million year old fossil which is much the oldest representative of a large group of animals still with us today. The early jellyfish relative lived at a time known as the Ediacaran period when all other known complex organisms were weird, alien-looking lifeforms with no surviving descendants. Roland Pease talks palaeontologist Frankie Dunn at the University of Oxford who's led the study of Auroralumina attenboroughii.

Did the cultural invention of romantic kissing five thousand years ago lead to the spread of today's dominant strain of the cold sore virus (Herpes simplex 1) across Europe and Asia? That's the hypothesis of a team of virologists and ancient DNA experts who've been studying viral DNA remnants extracted from four very old teeth. Cambridge University's Charlotte Houldcroft explains the reasoning.

Plus, is the first major city that fell to Russia about to return to Ukrainian hands?

The Deadly Sacrifice at Hawkes Bay

In February 1983, a group of 42 Shia devotees left a quiet village in the Chakwal district of Pakistan and embarked on an epic journey to Karbala in Iraq. This was no ordinary pilgrimage but had been ordained by Mahdi, the last spiritual leader or Imam of Shia faith. His instructions were communicated to the faithful in miraculous messages channeled through an 18 year old woman.

The caravan left in two trucks on the 1300 kilometre journey to the port city of Karachi where they were to cross the Arabian Sea for Iraq. What happened next is a story of extreme sacrifice in the name of the Shia Islamic faith and would result in the deaths of 18 men, women and children.

In this programme reporter Shumaila Jaffery returns to their village before she travels to Hawkes Bay to discover what really happened on that moonlit night four decades ago. She tracks down survivors to explore if what the sacrifice of the devoted may tell us about Shia Islam today, asks; ‘could something like this ever happen again’?

Bolsonaro v Lula: The race to lead Brazil

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro this week officially launched his campaign for a second term in office. The election in October will likely come down to a race between the right-wing populist leader and his main left-wing rival Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva. Lula has been president before but was barred from running in 2018 due to corruption convictions that have since been overturned by the courts. The incumbent is behind in the polls as the country is buffeted by global economic headwinds exacerbated by the Covid pandemic, which saw Brazil experience one of the highest rates of deaths in the world. So, which issues will decide the election and what impact will the result have on Brazil and the world?

Women in Iran have been sharing videos of themselves taking off their hijabs in public in protest at the growing pressure regarding the mandatory headscarf. Meanwhile the Iranian parliament may soon approve a bill which will severely restrict pet ownership. Taraneh Stone of BBC Persian and Ali Hamedani discuss why the government seems to be enforcing stricter rules.

Reporting Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka has experienced months of turmoil with mass protests over the island's economic crisis, leading to the flight of President Gotabaya Rajapaksa earlier this month. His successor Ranil Wickremesinghe has imposed a state of emergency until mid-August. It's been one dramatic development after another for BBC Sinhala's Colombo-based reporters Ranga Sirilal and Shirly Upul Kumara.

A Nigerian world record
This week Nigerian hurdler Tobi Amusan broke the world record in the women's 100m hurdles, and won the first ever gold medal for Nigeria at the World Athletics Championships. BBC Africa's Peter Okwoche tells us more about her, and what the win means to Nigerians.

Drama Queen
Drama Queen is a ground-breaking podcast series presented in Hindi and Urdu by the BBC’s Samrah Fatima. It tells the stories of men and women who are accused of being ‘drama queens’ if they speak out about their struggles. Samrah explains why she wanted to tackle the deeply rooted social issues that are common to both India and Pakistan, and show how people have been able to forge new paths for themselves.

First grain ship due to leave Ukraine after Russia deal

President Volodymyr Zelensky has made an unannounced appearance at a Black Sea port ahead of the departure of the first ship loaded with grain since the war began five months ago.

Also in the programme: as the US and China trade warnings over Taiwan we'll hear from the island about how tensions can be lowered; and palaeontologists are celebrating the discovery of a remarkable new Jurassic fossil site in the west of England.

First grain cargo due to leave Ukraine since war began

A ship carrying grain is due to leave Odessa port in Ukraine - the first since the start of the war with Russia. It follows a deal struck between the two countries last week, ending the Russian blockade of the port. We speak to Taras Vysotsky, Ukraine's deputy minister of agriculture, who was at the port with President Zelensky and a gathering of western ambassadors. And Chris McGill, underwriter at Ascot Syndicate at Lloyds of London, tells us how easy it is to insure ships coming out of Ukrainian ports.

Food inflation in Sri Lanka has reached 90%. The BBC's Sajid Nazmi is in the capital Colombo and tells us what prices are like.

In Ghana, drought and mine damage are having a devastating effect on cocoa crops. The cocoa harvest is predicted to fall to its lowest level in 12 years. We speak to Jeffery Ntorinkansah of the Commodities Brokers Association.

And we hear how the American bullfrog is causing huge damage to the global economy. Their numbers are increasingly difficult to control, causing widespread crop devastation and destroying natural vegetation.

Russia says Ukrainian prisoners killed in blast

Ukraine and Russia have blamed each other for a rocket strike that's reported to have killed dozens of Ukrainian prisoners of war in the occupied east. We get the latest from our reporter and also discuss comments by the UK defence Secretary who argues that Russia has been crippled by huge military losses in Ukraine.

We continue to hear from people across the world affected by the extreme heatwaves and wildfires, and today we bring you a conversation with three “wildland” firefighters in America. They are specialist firefighters who travel across the country to battle the largest and the most dangerous wildfires.

In a case involving two England footballers' wives, Rebekah Vardy has won her High Court libel case against Coleen Rooney. Our reporter explains.

After the Spanish government caused a stir online with a campaign intended to encourage women of all body types to go to the beach, we speak to a British model who says her image was used in the campaign without her permission.

If a tree falls in a forest… does it make a sound?

If a tree falls in a forest, and no-one is there to hear it, does it make a sound? This is an age-old debate that listener Richard and his family have been arguing about for years. Can CrowdScience settle it once and for all?

Caroline Steel speaks to experts in hearing, biology, philosophy, physics and sound design, which takes her to some unexpected places.

Professor Stefan Bleek is an expert in psychoacoustics who says that sounds only exist in our heads.
Dr Eleanor Knox and Dr Bryan Roberts are philosophers that make her question if anything exists outside our own perception. Professor Lilach Hadany wonders if it’s limited to humans and animals - could other plants hear the falling tree too?
And Mat Eric Hart is a sound designer who says that sound is subjective – it’s always tangled up with our own interpretations.

Things get truly weird as we delve into the strange implications of quantum physics. If there is such a thing as reality, doesn’t it change when we’re there to observe it? Does the tree even fall if we aren’t there?

Blame game over occupied east Ukraine rocket strike

Ukraine and Russia have blamed each other for a rocket strike that's reported to have killed dozens of Ukrainian prisoners of war in the occupied east.

Ukraine says the prison was targeted by Russia in an effort to destroy evidence of torture and killing. For its part, Russia said the prison camp in Olenivka was hit by Ukrainian precision rockets.

Also in the programme: We'll hear from the US state of Kentucky where flash floods have killed at least 15 people and the governor says the toll is likely to be much higher; and why Haiti's government is seemingly powerless to curb the gang violence in the capital that has claimed hundreds of lives.
