North Korea spooks its neighbours

This week as North Korea continued to test new ballistic missile technology, a new president took charge in South Korea promising to take a harder line with the north. Yoon Suk-yeol used his inaugural speech to call on Kim Jong-un to pursue a genuine path to rid his country of nuclear weapons. If he does, Mr Yoon promised he'd present an "audacious plan" to boost the impoverished North’s economy. Meanwhile in Japan, former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is calling for his country to re-think its post-WW2 ban on nuclear weapons. As the only nation to have suffered a nuclear attack, public opinion strongly supports laws prohibiting nuclear weapons on Japanese soil. But some analysts now believe the increased military threat from North Korea and China - including the testing of hypersonic missiles that in theory will be harder to intercept - mean that not only should Japan begin permanently hosting American nuclear warheads, it should even consider developing an nuclear deterrent of its own.

Social media perils for aspiring artists

Streaming is now the main growth driver for music revenues worldwide. In India, music streaming is estimated to cross $870m by 2025. According to a recent study, Indians also listen to more music than the rest of the world - over 19 hours a week, compared to 18 hours globally. And nearly 67% of this music is consumed through social media sites or apps. With those kinds of figures - what kind of effect is this having on young artists, who are often told, told, “It’s the future of music” or, “It’s here to stay, so learn to work with it.”

How does this affect their creativity, and how do they deal with the pressure to gain more followers on social media? We discuss the perils and pitfalls of social media for aspiring artistes.

Mariupol: City at the heart of war

The Ukrainian port city of Mariupol has been under attack by the Russians since the first day of the invasion on 24 February. It now lies in ruins, but still Ukrainian fighters are resisting in the Azovstal steelworks. Vitaliy Shevchenko, Russia editor of BBC Monitoring, tells us about the complex history and identity of Mariupol.

Reporting Sri Lanka
It’s been a week of violent unrest in Sri Lanka, where peaceful protests in the capital turned into riots on Monday after the resignation of prime minister Mahinda Rajapaksa. For two members of the BBC Sinhala team, it’s a doubly difficult story, having moved from Colombo to Delhi. Editor Ishara Danasekara and her colleague Amanda Abeysooriya tell us about the challenges of reporting from a distance.

South Korea's hijabi influencer

Gaming Brazil's election

Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro has enjoyed a particularly close relationship with the gaming community. They were one of the groups he relied on to get elected in 2018 and he has since rewarded them by lowering taxes on video games consoles.

The country’s gaming industry is unique – forged by a combination of strict import laws under military rule, homegrown talent and later, high prices which kept the world of gaming firmly in the hands of the rich and privileged.

Brazilian gamers were drawn to President Bolsonaro’s straight talk. But there are hints that things might be changing. His handling of the coronavirus pandemic has caused Bolsonaro’s approval rates to fall across society – and gamers are no exception. Some high profile gaming supporters have turned their back on the president. Plus the industry’s demographics are rapidly shifting, and not in Bolsonaro’s favour. So how are video game developers visualising the 2022 election? And can President Bolsonaro still rely on the support of the button bashers to defeat his arch enemy Lula?

Women in the world of animation

From the first moving drawings that appeared on screens back in the 1930s to the highly imaginative, emotionally resonant filmmaking of today – animation has come a long way. It is no longer considered a pleasant cinematic distraction for kids. In fact, some of the boldest, most creative and slyly subversive filmmaking can be found in animation. Kim Chakanetsa speaks to two women responsible for bringing animated characters to life.

María Cecilia Botero is an actor from Colombia whose career spans five decades. She has experience in everything from performing musical theater, to being a news anchor, to starring in popular telenovelas, to dubbing commercials and most recently voicing the character of the Abuela in the Oscar-Winning Disney film Encanto.

Signe Baumane is a Latvian animator based in Brooklyn. Her first of many short stories was published in a local newspaper when she was 14. She went on to illustrate children’s books and create sets for puppet theaters. Since she moved to the United States to further pursue animation, Signe has written, directed and animated 15 shorts and two animated films. Her work has been showcased at over 300 film festivals. She uses animation to confront difficult, adult topics, like “Rocks In my Pockets”, which she also voiced, which covers the 100 year history of her family in Latvia.

Produced by Emily Naylor.

Abortion in the US

Abortion is a deeply divisive issue in the United States that spans the law, religion and women’s rights. It has been a legal right for almost 50 years. Now, the Supreme Court – the top court in the country – is expected to overturn the law and rule that abortions can banned.

It’s put abortion back towards the top of the political debate and we reflect some of the conversations taking place among those affected.

Two women share their experiences and personal reasons for terminating their pregnancies, including one that resulted from sexual assault.

“I felt like the deepest despair ever in my life,” said Samantha. “Seeing that positive pregnancy test, I remember balling up the shower curtain because I was in the bathroom screaming, and biting into the shower curtain so that no one could hear.”

Hosts Ben James and Karnie Sharp also introduce a conversation between two doctors, both women, who work at clinics that provide abortions. They discuss how they feel about performing abortions, including when one of them was pregnant with her own child; plus how they deal with any moral judgement that may surround their actions. The programme also includes messages from women who welcome a potential abortion ban.

Please be aware, the conversations discuss matters that some may find distressing.

We preview the Men's and Women's FA Cup final taking place at Wembley this weekend.

We'll speak to the BBC's Ian Dennis, get the full match day experience on board the Liverpool supporters coach and revisit some of the classic FA Cup team songs.

Then on Sunday it's the women's final. The competition has come a long way in a relatively short period of time. This is only the seventh year in its more than 50 year history the game has been played at Wembley. The progress of the women's game is in no small part down to women like Patricia Gregory, founder of the Women's FA and Lorraine Hoey captain of the Fulham's 1985 cup winners. We bring them together for their thoughts.

After Covid caused its postponement, the biggest sporting event for the deaf community, the Deaflympics, have been taking place in Brazil this week. Deaf sport isn't part of the Paralympic Games and as such hasn't seen the same kind of growth in interest, publicity and funding for its athletes, many of whom are struggling with the financial burden. We speak to British swimmer Nathan Young and CEO of the Organising Committee Richard Ewald.

The art of memory

Lola Arias is a well-known and influential Latin American theatre director, writer and filmmaker. Her powerful stage pieces are created from real life testimony. She gathers material for these works by talking to and workshopping with people who have witnessed, or been part of a particular, sometimes traumatic, shared experience. These people then become her actors, performing their lives in the theatre. She tells Tina Daheley about her working methods and her works including ‘Minefield’, where she brought together British and Argentinian veterans from the 1982 Falklands war, ‘The Day I Was Born’ which included people from different political sides during the Chilean dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet and her latest piece, Lengua Madre, Mother Tongue, exploring motherhood in the 21st Century.

This year Kaunas, Lithuania’s second largest city, is one of the three European Capitals of Culture 2022. It’s a place with a troubled past and one the topics being explored during this year of Culture is its forgotten or suppressed history. One of the artists who’s exhibiting there is William Kentridge. His family emigrated to South Africa from Lithuania more than a century ago to escape antisemitism and the pogroms. For years, the internationally acclaimed artist admits he was reluctant to visit the land of his ancestors. Kentridge, who combines his trademark charcoal drawings with animation and sculpture, is well known for tackling difficult subjects such as racial and financial inequality. Lucy Ash met him at the National Art Museum in Kaunas at his exhibition called That Which We Do Not Remember.

Sophie Jai’s debut novel Wild Fires is set on the Caribbean island of Trinidad. When her main character Cassandra returns home from abroad for the funeral of her cousin Chevy, she’s confronted by her intergenerational family, all living in different parts of the same house, together but separate, and the family secrets and hidden memories that have dominated their lives for decades. Sophie Jai herself was born and spent her early childhood in Trinidad until moving to Canada and she explains what drew her back to writing about Trinidad and the memories of her childhood.

Portrait of the monster black hole at our galaxy’s heart

The heaviest thing in the Galaxy has now been imaged by the biggest telescope on Earth. This is Sagittarius A*, the supermassive black hole at the centre of our Galaxy – a gas and star-consuming object, a 4 million times the mass of the Sun. The Event Horizon Telescope is not one device but a consortium of radio telescopes ranging from the South Pole to the Arctic Circle. Their combined data allowed astronomers to focus in on this extreme object for the first time. Astronomer Ziri Younsi from University College London talks to Roland Pease about the orange doughnut image causing all the excitement.

Also in the programme…

Climatologist Chris Funk talks about the role of La Niña and climate change in the record-breaking two year drought that continues to threaten the lives and livelihoods of millions of people in East Africa.

Was a pig virus to blame for the death of the first patient to receive a pig heart transplant? We talk to the surgeon and scientist at the University of Maryland School of Medicine who led the historic animal to human transplant operation this year.

How easy will it be to grow plants in lunar soil on future moon bases? Plant biologist Anna Lisa Paul has been testing the question in her lab at the University of Florida, Gainesville, with cress seeds and lunar regolith collected by the Apollo missions.

And….

Does photographic memory exist?

Most people are great at remembering key points from important events in their lives, while the finer details - such as the colour of the table cloth in your favourite restaurant or the song playing on the radio while you brushed your teeth - are forgotten.

But some people seem to have the power to remember events, documents or landscapes with almost perfect recall, which is widely referred to as having a photographic memory. CrowdScience listeners Tracy and Michael want to know if photographic memory actually exists and if not, what are the memory processes that allow people to remember certain details so much better than others?

Putting her own memory skills to the test along the way, presenter Marnie Chesterton sets out to investigate just what’s happening inside our brains when we use our memories, the importance of being able to forget and why some people have better memories than others.

Living through Shanghai’s lockdown

Pascale Harter introduces reportage and analysis from journalists and writers in China, Switzerland, Finland and Jamaica.

More than 373 million people across China are currently living under some form of Covid lockdown restrictions. In Shanghai – usually a frenetic megacity with more than 25 million residents – the rules have just been tightened again. Work, play and shopping routines have all been turned upside down, and nobody is sure when it might all end. Rebecca Kanthor describes how her family, friends and neighbours are waiting it out.

Across Europe, there are countries, communities, and private citizens opening their doors to Ukrainians escaping the war. But critics have pointed to some striking contrasts between the way Ukrainian refugees have been treated, and how the authorities deal with people fleeing violence elsewhere in the world. Imogen Foulkes reports from Switzerland, where questions are being asked about what some are calling a two-tier system.

Finland has history with Russia: plenty of it, including past battles, invasions and occupations. As the Finnish government and electorate considered whether the war in Ukraine now makes joining NATO - after decades of official neutrality - a wise strategic decision, Allan Little went back into the archives and Finnish memories of previous conflicts.

After decades of official prohibition, Jamaica partially decriminalised the growing, consumption and sale of marijuana in 2015. The cannabis plant has had a long – and controversial – part to play in the island’s history and culture. So how has the change in policy worked out for Jamaicans – especially the small-scale independent cannabis growers? Rachel Wright heard that some feel the new rules are edging them out of a lucrative market.

Grenada: Confronting the past

BBC World News anchor Laura Trevelyan discovered her family’s slave owning past only after the University College London database of slave ownership in the British Caribbean was published in 2013. Back in the 18th Century, the Trevelyan family were known as absentee slave owners on Grenada. The family never set foot on the island, but owned hundreds of slaves and profited for years from the sale of sugar harvested from five different sugar cane plantations.

To try and learn more about the legacy of slavery on Grenada and her family’s involvement in the slave trade, Laura Trevelyan and her producer Koralie Barrau go to Grenada. Koralie is descended from slaves on the Caribbean island of Haiti, so this was an intense trip for her, personally and professionally. Laura and Koralie visit the plantations, and learn about how slaves were brutalised and tortured. They are guided by the historian and administrator at the University of the West Indies, Dr Nicole Phillip Dowe, and the Grenadian historical novelist DC Campbell.

Grenada’s national commission on reparations for slavery has begun to meet and debate what reparations means. Laura interviews the chair of Grenada’s reparations commission, Arley Gill, to find out about the reparations Grenada is seeking from the former colonial powers of France and Britain.

Finally, Laura tries to find the ancestors of slaves once owned by her family - a journey which takes her to the heart of Grenada’s capital St George’s.

SUN 08:32 The Food Chain (w3ct38ms)
The problem with wheat

Wheat is one of the most important grains worldwide: you’ll find it in bread, biscuits, pasta, sauces, sweets and more besides. Indeed, take wheat products off supermarket shelves and they would look rather bare. But recent global events – not least the war in Ukraine - have caused crop prices to soar.

Ruth Alexander charts how a humble grass grown in the Fertile Crescent became a commodity traded worldwide, and she explores whether we have become too reliant on this “mega crop” for our food supplies – and what alternatives there might be. She talks to Cathy Zabinski, professor of plant and soil ecology at Montana State University, US; Frank Uekotter, professor of environmental humanities at the University of Birmingham, UK; and Augustine Sensie Bangura, CEO of Sierra Agri Foods, Sierra Leone.

Twenty-three years longing to find my mum

When war broke out in Somalia in the 1990s, Omar Mohamed’s dad was killed and he was separated from his mum. Omar, who was only four at that time, picked up his disabled younger brother Hassan and started running. The brothers eventually ended up in Kenya’s vast Dadaab refugee camp - the biggest refugee camp in Africa. For years, they never stopped looking for their mother. Until one day, rumours spread around the camp that a woman was looking for them. Could this stranger be Omar and Hassan’s mum?

Omar's extraordinary story was turned into a graphic novel called When Stars Are Scattered. Omar also set up his own charity called Refugee Strong. He was speaking to Jo Fidgen in July 2020.

Robots fixing sewers

Robots that navigate sewer pipes are being used to find leaks and blockages in an ancient water system.

They’re being put to work in Pune, India, to access dangerous and noxious spots that otherwise would be checked by people.

The sewage systems are more than 100 years old and the maps have been lost or are just outdated. So the robots are being used to update the maps, which should eventually lead to less leaks and so less contamination in the water.

But the machines also replace manual work that is done by some of the poorest members of Indian society. We explore what it will mean for their wellbeing and livelihoods.

Kenya's last great Laibon

In traditional Maasai culture one of the central figures of the community is the laibon. A laibon is a person who has been gifted with the power to see the future. They are not really a fortune teller and they are certainly not a witch doctor. They are more like a seer, but some also have the power to cure illnesses. A laibon is the one who advises the community as a whole on the best course of action to take in a given situation. For example, they can use their powers to say where the community’s cattle should be taken in order to find better grazing when there’s a drought. They are the ones who can pronounce when the time is right for important ceremonies. Today hardly any laibon remain.

There is still one though. Called Mokompo, he is today an elderly man who lives in one of the remotest corners of Kenya, far from towns, villages, and surfaced roads. Although very few Maasai in Kenya and Tanzania have ever met him, he continues to command huge respect. In this programme journalist Stuart Butler travels to Kenya to meet Mokompo and find out the spiritual secrets of one the country's last laibons.

The war in Transnistria

With speculation mounting that President Putin might mount an attack on Moldova, Max Pearson hears a first-hand account of the war in the 1990s between the Moldovans and Russian-backed separatists in the disputed region of Transnistria. There's also a chilling story from the Cold War about how a Soviet air defence official prevented a potential catastrophe by realising that a computer warning about a US nuclear attack was a false alarm.

In the second-half of the History Hour, an Egyptian poet remembers how 48 hours of unrest in 1977 forced the government to scrap a huge increase in the cost of bread, and an Icelandic geophysicist recalls how the 2010 eruption of the Eyjafjallajökull volcano caused disruption all over Europe.

MON 02:32 The Climate Question (w3ct3khw)
Why is Asia embracing nuclear power?

China currently has 53 nuclear power plants with plans to scale up significantly in the next decade, while India is planning to build 10 new power plants over the next three years. South Korea’s new government has committed to restarting its civil nuclear programme and even Japan’s prime minister has pledged to resume nuclear power in a country that has long been resistant.

Following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, energy security has now become more of a priority with countries looking for alternatives to Russian gas. And as countries transition to renewable power in an effort to reach net zero by 2050, governments are looking for a stable, green power supply which is lower cost. In the latest IPCC report, all pathways recommended nuclear in some form to mitigate against climate change.

After nuclear disasters such as Fukushima in Japan, safety has become an even more pressing issue, both in the region and globally, in the face of a resistant public and to safeguard communities around any power plants. We gained access to the Hinkley Point power plant in the UK which has adapted the design of the reactors to make them safer after what happened in Japan; but the pace of building has been slow and costs have been high. In China, a commitment to build more has led to a coordinated approach in terms of training, the supply chain and funding. But there are challenges ahead.

Presenters Kate Lamble and Jordan Dunbar are joined by Changhua Wu, a policy analyst specialising in China's environment, energy, climate change and sustainable development; Diane Cameron, head of the Nuclear Technology Development and Economics Division at the OECD Nuclear Energy Agency; Edwin Lyman, expert on nuclear safety and proliferation; and Director of Nuclear Power Safety at the Union of Concerned scientists in Washington.

Tracing forgotten female ancestors

Kim Chakanetsa meets two genealogists passionate about uncovering the forgotten stories of their clients' female ancestors.

Kenyatta D Berry is a lawyer and genealogist from the USA. She is the author of The Family Tree Toolkit and the co-host of The Genealogy Roadshow on PBS. She caught the genealogy bug by chance, when she started looking into her ex-boyfriend’s family history. She is an expert on African American ancestry and on the specific challenges people who descend from enslaved individuals face when looking into their families’ past.

At the age of 15, Belgian Marie Cappart started looking into her country’s national archives to find out more about her great-aunt, Maggie Nicholls. During WWII, Maggie helped three Canadian pilots survive in Nazi-occupied Belgium. She was later arrested and killed because of that. Marie went on to graduate in history and wrote several books, including Guide to Genealogy in Belgium. She is also the country manager for the online genealogy platform MyHeritage and she helps other people track down their ancestors.

Does photographic memory exist?

Most people are great at remembering key points from important events in their lives, while the finer details - such as the colour of the table cloth in your favourite restaurant or the song playing on the radio while you brushed your teeth - are forgotten. But some people seem to have the power to remember events, documents or landscapes with almost perfect recall, which is widely referred to as having a photographic memory.

Crowdscience listeners Tracy and Michael want to know if photographic memory actually exists and if not, what are the memory processes that allow people to remember certain details so much better than others?

Putting her own memory skills to the test along the way, presenter Marnie Chesterton sets out to investigate just what’s happening inside our brains when we use our memories, the importance of being able to forget and why some people have better memories than others.

Bike-riding bank robber, part 1

Olympic hopeful to audacious thief – the cyclist who turned to crime.

Movies influenced Tom’s biggest life decisions. Slacker film Reality Bites made him give up becoming an Olympic cyclist, and heist film Heat ‘inspired’ him to make the bizarre leap from fiction to the reality of committing a crime. But there are only so many banks you can rob before your ego, and the FBI, start catching up with you.

Hundreds of Ukrainians reportedly executed in Bucha

The BBC has learned that around 650 people were shot in what a senior police official has described as executions in the Bucha region outside Ukraine's capital Kyiv. The BBC's Sarah Rainsford has been investigating what happened.

Also in the programme, the UK government is poised to introduce legislation that would allow ministers in London to override parts of the Brexit deal on Northern Ireland; and North Korea's leader Kim Jong-un has lambasted health officials and ordered the army to help distribute medicine, as a wave of Covid cases sweeps through the country.

China's economy slows sharply

Amid a wave of Covid lockdowns, there has been a sharp slowdown in the Chinese economy. We hear from one Shanghai resident about the ongoing impact of lockdowns in the city. And we explore the potential impact on the global economy with the independent economist George Magnus. Also in the programme, McDonald's is selling its business in Russia, in response to the country's invasion of Ukraine. Anne McElvoy, executive editor of The Economist talks us through the fast food giant's history in Russia. International wheat prices have reached fresh record highs as an export ban by India threatens to squeeze the world's wheat supply even further. We get a sense of how it could affect the world's largest wheat importer, Egypt, from Angy Ghannam, deputy editor of BBC Monitoring in Cairo. Plus, our regular workplace commentator, Pilita Clark, makes the case for staying quiet in work meetings.

The Curious Cases of Rutherford and Fry

Surprising symmetries

Two eyes, two arms, two legs - we are roughly symmetrical on the outside, but inside we are all over the place! We just have one heart, which is usually on the left, one liver on the right, one spleen and one appendix. "Why is that?" wonders listener Joanne.

Our science sleuths discover that being symmetrical down the middle - at least on the outside - is by far the most common body plan across the animal kingdom. Professor Sebastian Shimeld from the University of Oxford takes us on a journey into the deep evolutionary past, to uncover how two-sided body structures first emerged in ancient worm-like creatures, and why this layout eventually proved so useful for swimming, walking and flying.

Garden snails turn out to be a surprising exception – their shells coil in one direction and on just one side of their body. Professor Angus Davison from the University of Nottingham tells the tale of his international quest to find a romantic partner for Jeremy – a rare left-coiling snail who could only mate with another left-coiling snail!

Dr Daniel Grimes from the University of Oregon unfolds the delicate mechanisms by which an initially symmetrical embryo starts to develop differently down one side, and everyone puzzles over the mystery of the left-handed 'mirror molecules' - so called L-amino acids - which turn out to be the building blocks of every living organism. A curious case indeed!

Also in the programme: how sandstorms are ripping through Iraq and beyond; and a breath of optimism from one of Lebanon's new independent MPs..

McDonald's pulls out of Russia

The fast food giant McDonald's has ceased its operations in Russia, two months after temporarily closing 850 branches across the country. The company said Russia's 'humanitarian crisis' in Ukraine, as well as unstable market conditions triggered by the conflict, are behind its decision to stop selling hamburgers there. The first McDonald's in Russia was opened in Moscow in 1990, and was widely seen as a symbol of western democracy.

N K Jemisin: Writing new worlds

New York-based writer N. K. Jemisin is one of the biggest names in modern science-fiction. She’s the first in the genre’s history to win three consecutive Hugo Awards, for each book in her Broken Earth trilogy.

In conversation with presenter Dr Vic James, Jemisin talks in-depth about world-building. She reveals how the initial idea for Broken Earth came to her in a dream. This then led her to a NASA writing residency and a trip to Hawaii, flying over its volcanoes in order to accurately visualise the trilogy’s setting: a super-continent called The Stillness that is ravaged by earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.

Jemisin reflects on how it all came together, how she gives voice to the oppressed, and why she thinks these books have resonated with so many people around the world.

Rebuilding Puerto Rico's electricity supply

Samira Hussain takes you to Puerto Rico. Back to back hurricanes 5 years ago shattered the island's electricity grid, leading to the longest blackout in American history. Residents are still trying to claw their way out of the darkness.

But one Puerto Rican town, in the island's mountainous region, may have found a solution. Arturo Massol Deya is the associate director of Casa Pueblo, he tells us how he's using solar panels to ensure a reliable supply of electricity to his local community.

We also hear from Wayne Stensby, CEO of Luma Energy. Last year, the transmission and distribution of electricity in Puerto Rico was privatised and handed to Wayne and his team. He tells us the whole system needs a lot of regeneration and investment.

The murder of Kelso Cochrane

In May 1959, Kelso Cochrane, a carpenter who'd emigrated to Britain from Antigua, was knifed to death by a gang of white youths in West London. The unsolved murder came at a time of racial tension in the area and led to the first official inquiry into race relations in British history. For its part, the large Caribbean community in West London responded by creating the cultural festival that became the Notting Hill Carnival. Claire Bowes talks to Victoria Christian, a friend of Kelso Cochrane.

Reclaiming African art in digital form

A Nigerian project called Looty is seeking to take back African art in digital form. Members go into museums, take LiDAR scans using their phones, and recreate these African artworks as non-fungible tokens (NFTs). The first piece is one of the Benin Bronzes from the British Museum. Different artistic reimaginations of this ancient artwork are now being sold as NFTs, with parts of the proceeds going to emerging Nigerian artists. Gareth speaks to Looty’s founder Chidi about the idea, and blockchain expert Anne Kaluvu comments on the project.

The innovative vision of Amazonia 4.0
The Amazon rainforest is being destroyed at an alarming rate. Could there be another way? The project Amazonia 4.0 is envisioning harnessing the rainforest’s inherent biodiversity through a sustainable bioeconomy. Professor Carlos Nobre explains how, with the help of drones, fibre optic cables and other technologies, this vision may become a reality.

The common fruit fly’s digital twin
One of the most ubiquitously used and best understood organisms in science is the common fruit fly. Many important developments in medicine and biology stem from research on this tiny insect. Now Professor Pavan Ramdya and his team have developed a complete simulated model of the fruit fly, a so-called digital twin. This model can be used by researchers to conduct experiments digitally, which may help speed up research and solve unanswered questions.


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

Uncertainty over fate of evacuated Azovstal fighters

Ukraine is working on the next stages of the operation to evacuate soldiers from the Azovstal steelworks in Mariupol. We hear from the wife of a man who is still in the Azovstal plant, and from the former head of Ukraine's national security council.

Also on the programme: US President Joe Biden has condemned white supremacy as "a poison running through our body politic" during a visit to Buffalo, New York. Ten black people were killed at a supermarket in the city on Saturday in what is believed to be a racially motivated hate crime.

And we look at how rising energy prices are hitting businesses in Italy's industrial north.

Generation Z and crypto trading

The lure of making a quick buck means young people have always invested in risky assets. For Generation Z, it is the volatility and the decentralised nature of digital assets such as cryptocurrency and NFTs which is so attractive. They are unregulated, meaning there is no investor protection. Some experts warn that trading them should be categorised as gambling.

Mariko Oi hears from young people who have lost vast sums of money trading in digital assets, Resh Chandran who describes himself as a financial educator offering training in conventional stocks, cryptocurrency and NFT trading in Singapore, and Brian Jung. Brian is an investor, entrepreneur, and influencer. He is best known for his personal finance, credit card, and crypto YouTube channel which boasts one million followers, but compared to other influencers, he is known to talk more cautiously about risks and danger.

Coming out as India’s first gay prince

Manvendra Singh Gohil - a real life prince and next in line to a centuries-old royal dynasty in the Indian state of Gujarat - grew up in the 1970s in a gilded cage. His family's desire to keep his blue blood away from ‘commoners’ meant that, growing up, he missed out on formative experiences like making friends. After a failed marriage to a princess, Manvendra finally shed his royal cocoon and was determined to break out and explore the world, and his sexuality. With the help of his new friend Ashok, a gay rights activist, the prince began a process of self-acceptance that would be put to the ultimate test.

Ukraine begins first war crimes trial

In the first war crimes trial in Ukraine, a Russian soldier has pleaded guilty to shooting dead a sixty-two year-old Ukrainian in the Sumy region. Sergeant Vadim Shishimarin faces life in prison.

Russia's defence ministry says nearly a-thousand Ukrainian soldiers have surrendered at the Azovstal steel plant in Mariupol.

The BBC has learned that secret schools are operating in Afghanistan to allow girls to continue their studies. The Taliban have refused to allow them to return to classrooms.

The head of the UN has called for a speedy transition to renewable energy after a new report showing the climate crisis accelerated last year -- breaking records for sea-levels, ocean heat and greenhouse gas concentrations.

Love-bombing Estonia’s Russian speakers

Can music and culture help unite Estonia? Guitar riffs lilt through the air and over the narrow river that marks the border between Estonia and Russia. It’s the first time Estonia’s annual festival Tallinn Music Week has been held in Narva, bringing coach loads of musicians from 30 countries around the world to a normally sleepy city. The organiser moved the festival when the war in Ukraine broke out in order to send a message of unity and to encourage Estonians from the capital to mix with people in Narva, where 97% of Estonians have Russian as their mother tongue. Many can barely speak Estonian at all.

Across Estonia, one quarter of the population are Russian speakers, prompting many to describe this as a threat. When Putin invaded Ukraine on the premise of liberating Russian speakers there, it lead to many in the press to ask ‘is Narva next?’ but a new generation of Russian speaking Estonians are increasingly frustrated by this rhetoric and say it simply is not true. Russian speakers are even signing up to Estonia’s volunteer defence force, ready to fight to defend Estonia should the worst happen. Their allegiance is clear. But is music and culture enough to unite Estonia’s Russian speakers?

How a stoma changed my life

Thinking about how food passes through your body may not be something that crosses your mind, but for people who have had stoma surgery, they’re aware of it at every meal.
Tamasin Ford explores what it’s like to live with a stoma bag and how it redefines your relationship with food.
We speak to three women who have had lifesaving operations to have a stoma bag fitted. The surgery tends to involve either the small or large intestine, with a stoma creating an opening on the skin of the abdomen to bypass the normal digestion process. Instead digested content is diverted to a pouch, worn on the outside of your body.
We find out how they learned to eat again after having surgery, what they're doing to fight the stigma around stomas, and how they’re embracing their new lives with stoma bags. Joining us are Aisha Islam in Saudi Arabia, Alisa Kuivasto in Finland and Gill Castle in the United Kingdom.

How do pandemics end?

After two really difficult years living in the grip of Covid-19, restrictions are winding down and international borders are opening up in countries around the world. Striking the right balance between the needs of a population fed up with lockdowns and scientists warning we’ve only reached the end of the beginning is complicated to get right. While it may feel like the worst of Covid-19 has passed, the disease still poses a real threat to us. We ignore this fact at our peril. So, in this week’s Inquiry Sandra Kanthal will be asking how pandemics really end.

Spending on defence

Rahul Tandon looks at changing attitudes to defence spending following Russia's invasion of Ukraine. There have been new funding commitments from countries like Germany, while Sweden and Finland now want to join NATO, but what's the true cost?
We speak to Estonia's defence minister Kalle Laanet about his country's growing military budget, and German member of the European Parliament Viola Von Cramon Taubadel on her country's decision to spend more.
Dr Diego Lopes Da Silva, a researcher with the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, says global spending reached a record level of $2 trillion in 2021, before the invasion of Ukraine.
Steven Zaloga, a military analyst at the Teal Group, explains the role of cutting edge drone technology, and Allison Pytlak from the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom discusses the human cost of conflict.

Shanghai at War

In 1937, Japanese forces entered Shanghai - spelling the end of a period when the Chinese city had been a thriving commercial centre governed by international powers and known as the "Paris of the East". During the eight-year Japanese occupation, local people in Shanghai endured starvation and brutal treatment; while foreigners scrambled to escape as their lifestyle of servants and glamourous parties slowly disappeared. Josephine McDermott speaks to Liliane Willens, who lived through the invasion and occupation of Asia's most international city.

Eunuchs and empires

Since ancient times the practice of castrating pre-pubescent boys, and sometimes men, was thought to make them loyal servants, suitable for roles at the heart of many imperial courts. Some historians believe this began with human slaves who were treated in the same way as animals – as lesser beings to be managed and controlled – with no free choice.

The effects of castration on the male body – the loss of testosterone being the principal one – had a huge impact on how eunuchs have been viewed throughout history. Being unable to father children who could threaten lines of succession, certain eunuchs rose to power precisely because of their exclusive access to the inner workings of empires. Castrated men were also prized for their singing voices in 17th and 18th century Europe, as Dr Brianna Robertson-Kirkland explains.

Bridget Kendall discusses this painful episode with Norman Kutcher, Professor in the Department of History at the Maxwell School at Syracuse University in the US. He specialises in imperial Chinese history, and he’s the author of Eunuch and Emperor in the Great Age of Qing Rule; Dr Kathryn Reusch, conservation technician at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, who's published widely on the topic of castration in relation to archaeological remains; and Shaun Tougher, Professor of Late Roman and Byzantine History at Cardiff University. He’s written many books and articles on eunuchs, including The Roman Castrati: Eunuchs in the Roman Empire.

The heart of a heart surgeon

Heart surgeon Stephen Westaby has saved thousands of patients throughout his 40 year career but it’s the deaths that stick with him. He tells Neal Razzell that as a teenager he was smart, but felt he wasn't bold enough to make the split-second life and death decisions required of a surgeon. It wasn’t until medical school when a rugby accident damaged the part of his brain that controls inhibition and risk-taking, that Professor Westaby overcame his shyness. He would later become famous for complex paediatric surgeries and would pioneer the use of a small artificial heart. This interview was first broadcast in July 2019.

Chilean couple Lorena Grez and Claudia Aravena share their daughter's birth story. They both had a big part in it as Lorena donated the egg, which was implanted into Claudia. But at the time of the birth only one of them could legally be recognised as the baby's mother. They tell Outlook's Jane Chambers why they fought to change this.

UN warns Ukraine invasion could cause global food crisis

The United Nations Secretary General has warned that the war in Ukraine is increasing the risk of a global food shortage, and the possibility of mass hunger. At a UN summit in New York, António Guterres said the Russian invasion had compounded food insecurity, which had already been affected by rising temperatures and the pandemic. We speak to Matthew Hollingworth, Emergency Coordinator and Country Director in Ukraine for World Food Prog.

Also, we hear from a volunteer helping fellow Ukrainian women cope with their new lives in Poland.

Turkey says it will block Sweden and Finland joining NATO and accuses them of harbouring terrorists who threaten the Turkish state. We speak to an advisor to president Erdogan.

And a rare insight into Afghanistan's Ministry of Vice and Virtue.

Death in the rainforest

Tree mortality in tropical moist forests in Australia has been increasing since the mid 1980s. The death rate of trees appears to have doubled over that time period. According to an international team of researchers, the primary cause is drier air in these forests, the consequence of human-induced climate change. According to ecologist David Bauman, a similar process is likely underway in tropical forests on other continents.

Also in the programme: the outbreaks of monkeypox in Europe and North America… Could SARS-CoV-2 infection lingering in the gut be a cause of Long Covid? News of a vaccine against Epstein Barr virus, the cause of mononucleosis, various cancers and multiple sclerosis.

Finding faith on a warship

BBC Faith and Ethics reporter Claire Jones has been granted exclusive access on board British warship HMS Northumberland while on deployment to the North Sea.

As Russian troops continue to invade Ukraine, Claire explores faith on a warship, and whether armed forces personnel can ‘find their faith’ in times of trouble or unrest.

The military chaplain onboard the warship is Reverend Dr Louisa Pittman, one of three female chaplains in the Royal Navy. She caters for all faiths, never carries a weapon, and holds no rank so the captain or a junior rating can speak freely.

Claire follows her as she carries out her duties and hears from sailors onboard about what their faith means to them in times of conflict.

Chasing the Marcos millions

The former president of the Philippines Ferdinand Marcos Senior is thought to have plundered a huge amount of public money during military rule in the 1970s and '80s. He spent the fortune on foreign properties and the luxury lifestyle enjoyed by his wife, Imelda Marcos. American lawyer Robert Swift has spent decades trying to recover that money so it can paid out as compensation to the thousands of Filipinos who were imprisoned or tortured during martial law.

What is the 'Great Replacement' conspiracy theory?

The suspect in Saturday’s killing of ten people at a Buffalo supermarket allegedly wrote a document endorsing the Great Replacement Theory. It’s a racist far-right conspiracy theory that falsely states there’s a secret plan to replace white people through increased immigration and other means. In the United States some politicians and mainstream media figures like Tucker Carlson of Fox News are accused of pushing a version of the theory when they insist Democratic Party immigration policies have the same aim. In Europe too, fears that white, Christian culture is being undermined have been stoked by far-right politicians across the continent. So how has Great Replacement Theory evolved? Is the basic philosophy behind it going mainstream? And what can and should be done to address the fears of people concerned about demographic change?

Ukraine war: US warns Russia against food blockade

The Ukraine war turns from a conflict about land and about values into a worldwide warning that food may run short for millions.

The US ambassador to the United Nations, Linda Thomas-Greenfield, tells this programme about what she thinks can be done about it and how far the US prepared is to go.

Also in this edition of Newshour: we hear from a pro-democracy activist in Egypt now entering his eighth week of hunger strike; and the Irish artist whose sculpture of a mythical mischief-maker made all sorts of trouble for him.

Canada blocks Huawei and ZTE from 5G networks

Canada will block two of China's biggest telecom equipment firms from its 5G networks. The move to exclude ZTE and Huawei brings Canada in line with its intelligence partners in the US, UK, Australia and New Zealand. We ask Canadian technology journalist Takara Small why the country took a long time to impose the ban. Also in the programme, food delivery drivers in the United Arab Emirates have been on strike, concerned at the rising price of petrol. We find out more from the BBC's Sameer Hashmi. With Europe attempting to wean itself off Russian energy following the invasion of Ukraine, coal power stations have increased output in recent months. The BBC's George Thomas reports on how it will impact the continent's ambitious targets to end coal power generation by the middle of the decade. Plus, following the death of the Greek film composer Vangelis, who among other things created the famous theme tune for Chariots of Fire, we examine his legacy with the Athens-based journalist Nikki Kitsantonis.

Today's edition is presented by Mike Johnson, and produced by Sarah Hawkins, Faarea Masud, and Elizabeth Hotson.

Floods in Indian state of Assam

Flooding and landslides in the Indian State of Assam have killed at least seven people and left more than thirty thousand displaced. India's weather office has forecast more heavy rain in the coming days. Assam regularly faces flooding during the monsoon season but experts say climate change has increased the frequency and intensity of the floods. We speak to our reporter in India, and hear from people affected by the flooding.

Ukraine’s president has said Russian forces have “completely destroyed” the eastern Donbass region. We speak to our experts about how Russia is pushing forward there and reportedly withdrawing forces from Mariupol to focus on the east. And we hear how some people in Russia are risking fines and prison terms by voicing their opposition to the invasion of Ukraine.

We hear from our correspondent who’s has had an exclusive access to facilities in Rwanda that will host refugees from the UK. The two countries have struck a deal to move some of the people who are coming to Britain illegally to be processed and settled in Rwanda.

Why does ancient stuff get buried?

Digging and excavating are bywords for archaeology. But why does history end up deep under our feet?

This question struck CrowdScience listener Sunil in an underground car park. Archaeological remains found during the car park’s construction were displayed in the subterranean stairwells, getting progressively older the deeper he went. How had these treasures become covered in so much soil over the centuries?

CrowdScience visits Lisbon, the capital of Portugal – and home to the above-mentioned multi-storey car park. The city has evidence of human habitation stretching back into prehistory, with remnants of successive civilisations embedded and jumbled up below today’s street level. Why did it all end up like this?

Human behaviour is one factor, but natural processes are at work too. Over at Butser Ancient Farm, an experimental archaeology site in the UK, we explore the myriad forces of nature that cover up – or expose - ancient buildings and artefacts over time.
