SAT 00:06 The Real Story (w3ct33p0)
The repatriation of precious artefacts

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

Our journey to sobriety

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

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

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

Insecurity in Nigeria

It has a population of 215 million but very few Nigerians have been untouched by incidents of violence and lawlessness which appear to have increased in recent months. Schools, colleges, churches, trains and roads have all been targeted, and people report feeling unsafe wherever they go.

We hear the anguish of relatives involved in the recent armed attack on a church in Ondo state in south-west Nigeria, in which forty people were killed and dozens wounded.

A young woman describes the terror of being abducted with her sister and other students from a residential college at night, and being made to walk for four hours into the bush, where they were held for almost two months. The kidnappers demanded a ransom which the authorities refused to pay, leaving their desperate parents searching for another way to secure the release of their children.

Riding into the record books at Royal Ascot

We look ahead to the final day of Royal Ascot by speaking to the most successful female jockey in the history of the meeting. Hollie Doyle has been competing at the course all week, and joins us ahead of her ride in the big race of the day - the Platinum Jubilee Stakes.

Kathrine Switzer reflects on how she helped pave the way for female runners following the 50th New York mini marathon. Switzer co-founded and competed in the first event back in 1972 and recalls the barriers women runners faced at that time - including how she was attacked by a race official during the Boston Marathon in 1967, when females were prohibited from entering the race.

Nathan Fluellen tells us about “A great day in the Stoke”, which he believes was the biggest gathering of Black surfers in history. He says the idea for the recent event in Los Angeles came to him in the aftermath of 2020's racial reckoning, when Black surfers staged “paddle outs” following the killings of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor.

Andrea Mason explains her motivation for attempting to break four world records next month, when she'll attempt to swim the three longest lakes and climb the three highest mountains in Wales, England and Scotland, and cycle between them too. Mason is doing the challenge in order to raise awareness about menstrual health. In 2017, she was diagnosed with severe endometriosis and cervical cancer and underwent a hysterectomy.

And in Sporting Witness, we travel back 48 years to the revolutionary surgery that saved baseball pitcher Tommy John's elbow and career. He was the first to have it done - and he paved the way for thousands of others. He became known as the Bionic Man and the operation was named after him.

The climate tipping points

Justin Rowlatt discovers how global warming may trigger irreversible changes to our planet.

The melting of polar ice sheets, the collapse of the Amazon rainforest, the seizing up of ocean circulation - these are just some of the calamities we risk bringing about through our unabated carbon emissions.

Each of these tipping points on its own could have dire consequences for the wellbeing of all life on Earth, including us humans. Together, they threaten to accelerate global warming out of our control, pitching us into a much hotter world.

But could we humans also be at a tipping point of our own? One that is galvanising action to decarbonise our economy like never before?

Do weird stuff and have fun doing it, with Nova Twins, Dream Wife, Cassyette and Yonaka

Nova Twins are one of the most exciting bands of the last 20 years. Amy and Georgia bring their metal energy to new audiences around the world, and have been friends since childhood. Alice Go is a guitarist and singer with Dream Wife, a punk band known for their lively on-stage performances and powerful feminist anthems.

This week we’re exploring Afrofuturism, the movement that blends fantasy, folklore and technology, to imagine a new future for African nations and people of African heritage. Four years after the smash hit movie Black Panther turned Afrofuturism into an unstoppable artistic force globally we’re asking: what’s next?

We meet the next generation of Afrofuturism-inspired artists, with Congolese-Rwandan-Belgian rapper Lous and the Yakuza, who’s just been signed to Jay-Z’s Roc Nation label and Nigerian fashion designer Adebayo Oke Lawal who recently dressed the new Doctor Who actor Ncuti Gatwa in Afrofuturist couture.

Thirty years after the Earth Summit

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

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

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

The digital devices in our everyday lives - from laptop computers to smartphones - are all based on 0s and 1s: so-called ‘bits’. But quantum computers are based on ‘qubits’ - the quantum 0s and 1s that are altogether stranger, but also more powerful. CrowdScience presenter Alex Lathbridge picks the brains of quantum scientists to find out how these ‘qubits’ allow computers to perform calculations millions of times faster than normal - and discovers how much of the theory is being used in reality.

While quantum computers do exist, they are not yet big enough or stable enough to be really useful. Alex visits a working quantum computer to understand what they can do right now, and why it’s so incredibly difficult to scale them up. He hears from the engineers racing to overcome the obstacles and unlock the potential of these mega-powerful systems.

But once the engineering problems are solved, what then? What should we do when the first really powerful quantum computer comes online? We explore the exciting range of possible applications - from helping create new drugs, to making electric batteries much more efficient and maybe even helping farmers fertilize their crops for a fraction of the price.

Murder in the Brazilian Amazon

Max Pearson introduces dispatches from reporters and writers in Brazil, France, South Africa and Iran.

There was concern, fear - and then grief - felt around the world over the fate of the British journalist Dom Phillips and the Brazilian expert on indigenous affairs, Bruno Pereira, who went missing in the Amazonian jungle in early June. They made global headlines, but both men often stressed the climate of fear hanging over communities in Brazil's more remote regions. Their work with local indigenous groups had exposed the pressures of illegal mining, logging and hunting - as well as the risks sharpened by land invasions and drug trafficking - in the area around the Javari valley in Brazil's far west. Andrew Downie pays tribute to the energy and commitment of his friend Dom Phillips.

As France elects the men and women who'll sit in the Assemblee Nationale, Lucy Williamson talks to one of the last cohort of new entrants to the corridors of power. Many of the fresh faces who Emmanuel Macron recruited from outside the political establishment in 2017 now have a different view of the French system after five years spent trying to spark change.

The Irish budget airline Ryanair has weathered some serious criticism in South Africa recently - over its introduction of a 'general knowledge questionnaire' for South African passengers flying to the UK. It was meant to weed out people traveling on fake passports. The problem? All the questions were in the Afrikaans language, which not all South Africans speak - or even understand. After a passionate backlash, the test has been junked - and even Ryanair's chief executive admitted it 'made no sense'. Audrey Brown explains why the quiz sparked such widespread anger.

And in the Zagros Mountains of Iran, Anthony Sattin joins the seasonal migration of the Bakhtiari herders, nomads who have driven their sheep and goats across the country's plains and highlands for thousands of years. In the modern world, many countries would prefer nomadic peoples to settle down - it makes them easier to tax, for one thing. Both Shahs and ayatollahs have tried to persuade the Bakhtiari to stop moving around so often - but as it turns out, their seasonal journeys haven't just shaped Iran's history, but continue to feed the country today.

The night Ukraine gave up its nuclear weapons

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

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

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

The British commune and the Colombian guerilla group

If you visited the controversial Atlantis commune in Southern Colombia back in the 1990s, you’d have probably heard some disturbing noises. The group practised primal screaming, a form of psychotherapy which seeks to address childhood pain. The commune had started in London, founded by a therapist called Jenny James. They’d made the move to South America to be closer to nature, and they’d settled on a forested area of Colombia controlled by left wing Farc guerrillas. At first Atlantis coexisted with the Farc, but as the Colombian civil war intensified the guerrillas became more hostile, and when violence broke out it pulled the commune apart. Outlook’s Faye Planer went to visit the commune’s remaining members in 2019.

Racing to get kids reading

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

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

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

The Church's slave plantation: Part one

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

Ice cream: A cool history

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

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

The Life Scientific: Pete Smith

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

Does recycling help fight climate change?

Reduce, reuse, recycle is a familiar mantra the world over. Recycling has been described as ‘one of the easier climate-friendly acts” that individuals can do. A recent poll found that, globally, most of us believe that recycling is the single best thing we can do to tackle the climate crisis. But there isn’t much mention of “reduce” and “reuse”.

This week, presenters Kate Lamble and Neal Razzell explore how successful the world’s recycling system really is, visiting Port Klang in Malaysia where huge swaths of the globe’s recycling gets sent only to end up... well, listen and you’ll find out! Kate and Neal will also learn how climate friendly recycling really is and whether there are other more important actions we can take to improve how we manage our waste.

Rat catchers: Women in pest control

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

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

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

India's surrogacy capital

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

What is a quantum computer?

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

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

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

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

Why my birth parents tried to keep me a secret

Brendan Watkins was just eight years old when he found out he was adopted. Although he didn't start to look for his birth parents until he was in his twenties, it would be a search that would go on for decades and reveal astonishing secrets. When he eventually learned the truth, Brendan began to understand why his birth parents had gone to such extreme lengths to hide that they'd ever had a child. Brendan is completing a memoir about his life experiences called Birthrights - it will be published in 2023 - for more information, go to: brendanwatkins.com.au

The Life Scientific: Jacinta Tan

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

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

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

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

Carol Kaye: Queen of the bass

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

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

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

After nearly 20 years of planning, in June 2022 Norway will open its new National Museum of Art, Architecture and Design in Oslo. The building will merge four museums and galleries into one space. The new National Museum will contain Norway's biggest collection of art, architecture and design. It will display over 6,500 works, from antiquity to the museum’s most recent contemporary acquisitions. Discover what it takes to launch a new world-leading cultural collection.

In The Studio follows Stina Högkvist , Director of Collections, as well as curators, conservators and museum staff as they prepare for the grand opening.

Getting kids out of institutions

More than five million children live in orphanages or other institutions - the vast majority in low or middle income countries. Staff are often overstretched, poorly paid and do not last long in the job, which leaves children deprived of one of the most important things for healthy development - a consistent, loving relationship.

Organisations around the world are now working hard to find these children the one thing they desperately need - a family. But in countries with high rates of poverty and fragile social work and foster care systems, it’s not always easy.

We visit a project in Colombia to meet the children, parents, and trainee foster carers whose lives are taking a very different turn. And in the UK, we look at a project giving foster families the support network they need.

The club teaching women to say 'no' at work

Ever heard of the term non-promotable task? Well, if you’re a woman, the chances are you’ve been doing a lot of them at work.

Leanna Byrne speaks to the authors of The No Club, a book tracking the problems that arise when women are tasked with doing mindless jobs. We are talking about the kind of jobs that make managers happy, but won’t help you get on in your career.

Linda Babcock, Brenda Peyser, Lise Vesterlund, and Laurie Weingart—the original “No Club”— join us to talk through why women are disproportionately asked and expected to take on these tasks, why that leaves women overcommitted and underutilised and how companies are therefore forfeiting revenue, productivity, and top talent.

Biggest rail strikes in the UK for 30 years

Only 20% of trains across England, Scotland and Wales are running as the RMT union strike for three days over job cuts, pay and pensions. The Prime Minister, Boris Johnson has said commuters must "stay the course" and urged rail bosses and unions to agree a deal. The BBC’s Rowan Bridge gives us an update from Manchester Piccadilly station in the north west of England.

And it’s not just the UK. Yesterday, public sector health workers and teachers walked out over pay in Zimbabwe. There was also a nation-wide strike by trade unions in Belgium. Emeritus professor of economics at Ottowa University, Mario Seccareccia, explains.

The Hungarian government is subsidising fuel to around $1.25 a litre. But the policy triggered a wave of fuel tourism, as drivers from neighbouring countries crossed the border to fill up their cars more cheaply. The government has said cheaper fuel would only be available to Hungarian-registered cars, something the EU says is discriminatory and could land Hungary in court. Gabor Egri, President of the Independent Petrol Station Association of Hungary, tells us how petrol station owners are reacting.

India has been firefighting a diplomatic row with Arab countries because of derogatory remarks made by the spokesperson of the ruling Hindu nationalist party, the BJP, about the Prophet Muhammad. Following strong objections and protests in these countries the spokesperson has now been suspended. The BBC’s Devina Gupta tells us how much this has impacted India’s relations with the Gulf countries, where it does trade worth billions of dollars.

A gigantic cruise ship being built in Germany could be sold for scrap metal before it ever sets sail. We find out more from Captain Ken Caine of shipbrokers QPS Marine Ships in Florida.

In the aftermath of an attack on women by a group of men in a Tangshan restaurant which sparked outrage online, questions are being raised about gender based violence in the country.

The first images showing armed police waiting in a corridor during last month's school shooting in Uvalde in Texas have emerged. Police arrived earlier in the attack and with more firepower than previously reported, according to US media who have seen investigative documents. Officers have been accused of failing to act quickly enough to stop the attack, which left 21 people dead. Our correspondent brings us the latest on the story.

A major hospital in Kenya has warned people not to sell their kidneys online to make money, reminding them that it's against the law. We'll hear more from our correspondent about how the East African's country cost of living crisis is driving some people to drastic measures.

The Antarctic Midwinter Broadcast 2022

The Antarctic Midwinter Broadcast is unlike anything else on the BBC World Service. Every year, we make this special programme for just 32 listeners: The team of scientists and support staff isolated at British research stations in the Antarctic midwinter. Presented by Cerys Matthews, the programme features messages from family and friends at home as well as music requests from Antarctica. For decades it has been part of the traditional midwinter celebrations.

For the staff living at three British Antarctic Survey research stations (Rothera, Bird Island and South Georgia), and at other national bases across the frozen continent, midwinter is a special time. With no sunlight, Antarctica is at its coldest and those stationed on the frozen continent face months of total isolation.
Midwinter celebrations at the British research stations include a feast, exchange of presents, watching the 1982 horror film The Thing (where an alien monster terrorises an Antarctic base) and listening to the BBC’s Midwinter Broadcast.
As ever, this year’s programme includes recorded messages from family and friends of the winterers, music requests from the personnel in Antarctica and appearances from special guests including Sir David Attenborough and actor Brian Blessed.

Russia warns Lithuania over blockade

Russia has warned Lithuania of "serious" consequences after it banned some goods to the Russian territory of Kaliningrad.
Kaliningrad - a strategic region where Russia's Baltic Fleet is headquartered - has no border with mainland Russia.
Russia's senior security official Nikolai Patrushev said Moscow will certainly respond to such hostile actions.

A British subsidiary of the mining company Glencore has pleaded guilty in a UK court to corruption offences, after being accused of paying millions of dollars in bribes to secure access to crude oil in Africa.

Walking The Iron Curtain

Walking the Iron Curtain: Wild lands reunited

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

Race and DNA ancestry tests

Find out more about the DNA ancestry company aiming to increase its appeal across a wider range of ethnic groups. They're attempting to correct the racial bias in DNA databases, so customers get a fuller story of who they are.

Genetic studies have primarily been done nearly exclusively in European populations to date and DNA databases are four to one skewed in favour of European DNA.

But diversity drives are unearthing genetic treasure. Slavery scrubbed the family histories of generations. Genetics is helping African Americans, for one, piece together their stolen stories.

In this episode David Reid hears the story of Jamila Zheng who found her ancestral home and relatives she didn't know existed after taking a DNA test. We also hear from Dr Steven Micheletti, Population Geneticist at 23andMe and Dr Anjali Shastri, Senior Research Programme Manager at 23andMe about the diversity drive at their company.

The killing of Vincent Chin

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

Glad to be gay: The surprise hit that became a pride anthem

When Tom Robinson realised he was gay, as a lonely boy at boarding school in Britain in the 1960s, homosexuality was a criminal offence. The pressure of keeping his feelings secret pushed Tom into depression and eventually to attempt suicide. Salvation appeared in the form of an unlikely school for ‘disturbed and disturbing’ boys in the English countryside, and later, in London, Tom discovered his twin passions: music and gay activism. When police harassment of gay men rose sharply in the mid-70s, Tom wrote Glad to be Gay as a bitterly sarcastic response. He tells Emily Webb about how it became an unlikely hit, and how he kept updating the song’s lyrics to reflect not only changes in society but in his own life too.

Kenya's election hustle

Kenyan politicians are spending millions of dollars on campaigns to win lucrative political office in August's crucial elections. With 75 percent of Kenyans under the age of 35, securing the youth vote will be key. But amid a youth unemployment crisis, many have grown disillusioned about the chance for real change. Dickens Olewe travels to Nairobi to meet the young Kenyans who instead see the election campaign as a new business opportunity, a new "hustle" to extract cash from competing candidates.

Menopause and diet

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

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

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

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

THU 08:06 The Inquiry (w3ct39t3)
Has the war in Ukraine sparked a global food crisis?

Each year, Ukraine exports enough food to feed 400 million people around the world. But the Russian invasion has disrupted vital trade routes, trapping an estimated 25 million tonnes of grain in silos around the port city of Odesa.

The African Union describes the situation as a catastrophic scenario, and the UN Secretary General says the shortages could tip millions of people into food insecurity.

But how reliant is the world on Ukrainian – and Russian – grain? What will a shortfall do to the world’s most vulnerable countries?

On the Inquiry this week, Charmaine Cozier asks, has the war in Ukraine sparked a global food crisis?

Samurai: Japan’s elite warrior class

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

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

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

Monster microbe

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

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

The Church's slave plantation: Part two

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

From rebel to president: Colombia’s new leftist leader

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

Roe v Wade: US Supreme Court strikes down abortion rights

In the US the Supreme Court has overturned a 50-year-old ruling that legalised abortion nationwide. The court struck down the landmark "Roe v Wade" decision, weeks after an unprecedented leaked document suggested it favoured doing so. The judgement will transform abortion rights in America, with individual states now able to ban the procedure. Our correspondent is live in Washington giving us the latest reactions to the story. We'll also hear from women on either side of the debate for their thoughts on the watermark moment.

We return to Afghanistan, where rescue teams in the south-east of the country are struggling to reach a remote mountainous area hit by an earthquake that's believed to have killed more than a thousand people. Officials said communicating with parts of Paktika province - the worst-hit area - was especially difficult because Wednesday's quake had brought down mobile phone masts and power lines. We get the latest on the rescue efforts.

With Monkeypox outbreaks occurring all over the world, the World Health Organisation is currently deciding whether or not the outbreak constitutes a public health emergency of international concern. We have your questions about the virus answered by our doctor.

We bring you the latest from Ukraine, where Russian forces have nearly encircled the eastern city Severodonetsk in recent days, and are now targeting its twin city Lysychansk. According to the top regional official, Ukrainian forces in Severodonetsk have been ordered to withdraw. We’ll get an update from our correspondent in the country and continue to hear from more local people.

Roe v Wade: US Supreme Court strikes down abortion rights

We continue our coverage in the US, after the Supreme Court has struck down the landmark Roe v Wade decision that legalised abortion in the country. It means millions of US women will lose the legal right to abortion, with individual states now able to ban the procedure. Half of US states are expected to introduce new restrictions or bans. We'll be speaking to women on either side of the debate.

The Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting has officially opened in Rwanda’s capital, Kigali. Addressing the attendees, the Prince of Wales has expressed his "personal sorrow" about "slavery's enduring impact" and addressed the contentious issue of other Commonwealth countries cutting ties with the Royal Family. Much of the Commonwealth brings together countries that were part of the British Empire but has increasingly included others like Rwanda. We bring you the latest news from the meeting, as well as explaining what the Commonwealth is. We also hear from people living in Commonwealth countries, telling us what the bloc means to them and how they see its relevance in a post-colonial world.

Can we get better at accepting death?

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

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

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

With Dr Rachel Menzies, Abigail Griffin, Dr Suresh Kumar and Rebecca Nellis. Thanks to Lola, Juan, Leon, Qayyah, Bessy, Madhumita, Ashley, Amaru, Mila and Sheila.
