Italy’s right-wing nationalists on the rise

Italians go to the polls on 25 September after the collapse of the country’s 69th government in just 77 years. Polls suggest a conservative coalition - likely led by the right wing nationalist Brothers of Italy party - may form the next government. Critics accuse Brothers of Italy (Fratelli d’Italia) of having fascist roots, a claim it rejects. The beating to death of Ogorchukwu Alika, a Nigerian street trader in Italy last week, has shone a spotlight on growing anti-migrant rhetoric from a number of the country’s right-wing parties. So, is Italy about to elect a hard-right government? If Brothers of Italy leader Giorgia Meloni does become the country’s next Prime Minister what kind of leader will she be? And how could a more nationalist government impact Italy’s relationships with the EU, Nato and the US?

US labour market defies recession fears

US employers added more than 500,000 jobs in July and the unemployment rate dropped, defying fears that the labour market is heading for a slowdown.
The jobless rate fell to 3.5% from 3.6% in June, as restaurants, bars and other firms continued to add workers.

China is halting co-operation with the US in several key areas including climate change, military talks and efforts to combat international crime.
The new measures follow a trip to Taiwan by a US congressional delegation led by senior Democrat Nancy Pelosi.

The Premier League is back for another season, starting Friday night with a London derby as Crystal Palace host Arsenal. We find out how the league has transform from being a competition enjoyed exclusively for football purists, to one of the UK's biggest cultural exports.

Pakistan: 25 years of international cricket

On this week’s Stumped with Isabelle Westbury, Jim Maxwell and Charu Sharma, how did Pakistan's women go from having never played an international match to the Commonwealth Games in the space of 25 years? We’ll find out the answer from journalist and author, Aayush Puthran, who has written a book on the subject.

We'll also discuss whether the world's best cricketers could soon be contracted all year round by Indian Premier League franchises and what the impact of that would be on the international game.

What next for women in football?

What are the victories - and challenges - for women's football around the world? After a video of the England women's victory dance went viral, we hear from Laura Garcia from BBC Mundo and Alma Hassoun from BBC Arabic about how football has empowered women players in their regions.

Kashmir, three years on
It has been three years since the Indian government revoked the special status of Jammu and Kashmir. Security forces were deployed, and the region was cut off from most lines of communication. Aamir Peerzada of BBC Indian languages is from Kashmir and was reporting from there at the time. He shares his memories.

The Bandit Warlords of Zamfara
In northwestern Nigeria, ultra-violent bandit gangs raid villages, attack drivers, abduct schoolchildren and kill anyone who resists. Hausa villagers have formed vigilante militias to defend themselves, but have allegedly killed innocent people. BBC Africa Eye's Yusuf Anka takes us into the heart of Nigeria’s worst security crisis.

Human trafficking from Vietnam to Cambodia
A new case of modern slavery has been revealed in Cambodia, where Vietnamese people are being lured with the promise of jobs in the gambling industry. Once over the border, their possessions are confiscated and they are made to work long hours and live in sub-human conditions. For BBC Vietnamese, Thu Bui spoke to victims and their rescuers.

Leaving my religion

When doubt creeps in about the faith you’ve grown up in and nobody will tolerate your questions, when you look at your life ahead mapped out by others and wonder where your ambitions fit - how do you step away? Kim Chakanetsa talks to two women from Tanzania and Scotland about leaving their religion.

Zara Kay grew up in Tanzania in a strict Muslim family. She faced disapproval when she chose not to wear a hijab, for moving abroad to study, and for her career as an IT engineer. But the abuse she received after expressing support for gay marriage exposed such hate in her community that she left the religion. On a recent trip to visit family in Tanzania she was arrested. She now lives in Sweden and works with an online organisation, Faithless Hijabi, supporting other former-Muslims.

Ali Millar was raised in a community of Jehovah’s Witness in Scotland - spending Saturdays knocking on doors trying to convert people. As a teenager she struggled with trying to fit in at school and make friends while at the same time obeying the rules of her religion. Married young she wasn't allowed to follow the career she dreamed of. Realising her daughter would face the same restricted life, she walked out on the religion and hasn't seen her mother or sister since. Ali’s book about her experience is called The Last Days.

SAT 09:06 BBC OS Conversations (w3ct417s)
Women's football

Women’s football is on an incredible high around the world after a month of five international tournaments with record breaking crowds. Those tournaments have delivered new champions, new interest and new hope. The new champions are Papua New Guinea, South Africa and England. Perhaps more predictably there have also been trophies for the USA and Brazil.

The success has created a discussion about how this is a significant moment in the development of the game. But the journey to this point has been challenging. Fifty years ago, women’s football was banned in England. Now they have won the country’s first major football trophy since the men's World Cup in 1966.

We bring together three women who have also played for England: Stacey Copeland was in England Under-18s before becoming a Commonwealth champion boxer. She recalls the first time being allowed onto a boys’ football team at the age of eight. “It was just amazing and then, during the game, a parent or a coach on the other team realised that I was girl,” says Copeland, “and shouted across the pitch and insisted that I leave.”

Together with former England defender Fern Whelan and BBC World Service Digital and Sport Editor, Anna Doble, they discuss with host James Reynolds how Euro 2022 can change the course of women’s sports.

Three sports commentators based in Rwanda, the Netherlands and the Philippines also discuss why women’s football is not just inspirational, it’s also enabling social change.

Why are so many Indians moving abroad?

Last year, nearly 160,000 Indians gave up their citizenship. In 2020, India was ranked highest by the United Nations among countries with the largest diaspora populations, with over 18 million Indians living outside the country.

What’s shaping these trends in India? According to experts, it is mostly the prospect of better education or employment. But many say that in recent years, growing concern over pollution and corruption have emerged as the strongest factors to move out. Some even point to the changing social environment of increased polarisation within the country.

So is this trend here to stay? What about the smaller but definitive group of Indians returning to the homeland? What’s their story of reverse migration?

In this edition of WorklifeIndia, we discuss why are so many Indians moving abroad.

Ukrainian Freedom Orchestra

The Proms welcomes the newly formed Ukrainian Freedom Orchestra who come to London as part of a tour of Europe and the USA. The orchestra, led by the Canadian-born conductor Keri-Lynn Wilson, is composed of Ukrainian players from a dozen orchestras in both their besieged country and elsewhere in Europe. They are joined by two leading Ukrainian soloists for a concert that showcases the artistry and resilience of Ukrainian musicians.

The concert programme reflects the current situation through 19th-century works: Russian occupation of Poland prevented Chopin from returning to his homeland and Beethoven’s Fidelio celebrates the triumph of love and freedom over injustice.

BBC presenter Samira Ahmed and Ukrainian composer Iryna Gould introduce the concert from the Royal Albert Hall in London.

Jamaica: Telling our own story

This week, to mark 60 years of Jamaican independence, Josie d’Arby meets the artists shaping the culture of the country today.

Sharma Taylor is an award-winning writer from the island, who has been short-listed no fewer than four times for the Commonwealth Short Story Prize. Last month, she released her debut novel, What a Mother's Love Don't Teach You. Set in 1980s Jamaica, it’s a story told by a multitude of unreliable narrators and with a mystery about parentage at its heart.

Photographer David I Muir looks through his archive to share the story of one photograph that he feels tells a distinctive story of Jamaica: a scene celebrating Jamaica’s bounteous seafood.

Film makers Storm Saulter, whose movies include Sprint and Better Mus’ Come, and Gabrielle Blackwood, who works across fiction and documentary, discuss capturing Jamaica’s history on film.

And founder of Dubwise Jamaica, the Reggae selector, Yaadcore, shares the philosophy behind his music.

Synthetic mouse embryos with brains and hearts

This week two research groups announced that they have made synthetic mouse embryos that developed brains and beating hearts in the test tube, starting only with embryonic stem cells. No sperm and eggs were involved. Previously, embryos created this way have never got beyond the stage of being a tiny ball of cells. These embryos grew and developed organs through 8 days – more than a third of the way through the gestation period for a mouse. Roland Pease talks to the leader of one of the teams, developmental biologist Magdalena Zernicka-Goetz of Cambridge University and Caltech about how and why they did this, and the ethical issues around this research.

Also in the programme: the latest research on how we spread the SARS-CoV-2 virus when we breathe. Infectious disease researcher Kristen Coleman of the University of Maryland tells us about her experiments that have measured the amounts of virus in the tiny aerosol particles emanating from the airways of recently infected people. The results underscore the value of mask-wearing and effective ventilation in buildings.

We also hear about new approaches to vaccines against the virus – Kevin Ng of the Crick Institute in London talks about the possibility of a universal coronavirus vaccine based on his research, and immunologist Akiko Iwasaki of Yale University extolls the advantages of nasal vaccines against SARS-CoV-2.

From dumping raw sewage into rivers to littering the streets with our trash, humans don’t have a great track record when it comes to dealing with our waste. It’s something that CrowdScience listener and civil engineer Marc has noticed: he wonders if humans are particularly prone to messing up our surroundings, while other species are instinctively more hygienic and well-organised.

Are we, by nature, really less clean and tidy than other animals? Farming and technology have allowed us to live more densely and generate more rubbish - maybe our cleaning instincts just aren’t up to the vast quantities of waste we spew out? CrowdScience digs into the past to see if early human rubbish heaps can turn up any answers. We follow a sewer down to the River Thames to hear about The Great Stink of Victorian London; turn to ants for housekeeping inspiration; and find out how to raise hygiene standards by tapping into our feelings of disgust and our desire to follow rules.

Can you be a kind boss?

In the cut throat world of work, can bosses be kind? Claudia Hammond unpicks the psychological evidence from around the world to find out if it’s possible for managers to be both kind all the time and successful.

The quest starts with Thom Elliot Co-founder of Pizza Pilgrims in the UK, who deliberately set out to foster a kind culture in a sector not exactly known for its benevolence. They're joined for pizza by Prof Robin Banerjee, architect of the Kindness Test to discuss the findings and examine whether kindness in business really does result in success. Joe Folkman is the perfect person to ask. He runs an evidence based leadership development firm in the US. It turns out there's a strong correlation between being likeable and effectiveness. Such concepts are backed up by a relatively new field of research called 'ethical leadership' pioneered by Professor Mike Brown.

Claudia meets former head teacher Ros McMullen who tells some home truths about leadership in a culture of relentless pressure and accountability.

Plus Lisa Smosarski, editor in Chief of Stylist magazine shares shocking office stories of the 'Devil Wears Prada' era and discusses wider societal shifts that may be contributing to a kinder culture in her industry.

Ukraine's shameful secret

Far from the frontline in Ukraine, thousands of disabled children and young people are trapped in Soviet-era residential homes that are overwhelmed and ill-equipped to deal with their complex needs. Dan Johnson has visited several institutions, where he met teenagers and young adults strapped to chairs or stuck in cots that they have long-since outgrown - evidence of a broken system, that’s existed long before Russia’s invasion.

This week Kenyans are voting for a new president to replace Uhuru Kenyatta. One of the main issues dominating the presidential campaign is the rising cost of living. So many of Kenya’s poor rely on informal work, without official employers or contracts, but they are the lifeblood of the cities where they ply their trade. Samuel Derbyshire has been in Nairobi, talking to street vendors, motorbike taxi drivers and cleaners who keep the city ticking.

A farmer in Peru has become an unlikely climate crusader. Saul Luciano Lliuya is bringing a landmark legal case against Germany’s biggest energy company, RWE, claiming they are putting his home at risk of flooding - even though the firm doesn’t operate in Peru. The case is based on claims that the fuel giant’s global emissions have contributed to a nearby glacier melting more quickly. Olivia Acland has been to meet the farmer at his home, high in the Peruvian Andes, to hear more about the court case which could be a tipping point for climate campaigners.

And, we head to Pakistan to watch a polo match in the Himalayas – more than 3,700 metres above sea level. The polo played here on the Shandur mountain pass is freestyle, fast and fierce. There are no umpires and players rarely wear helmets - it’s not for the faint-hearted! Hannah McCarthy joined spectators cheering on their team.

My granny the slave

Writer Claire Hynes goes on a personal journey to uncover the story of an Antiguan foremother, who is thought to be one of the first women to flee a slave plantation in the Caribbean island of Antigua.

Claire grew up learning a 200 year-old story passed down through generations about her enslaved ancestor known as Missy Williams. As a young woman Missy risked her life to escape the physical and sexual brutality of plantation life, hiding out in a cave. Inspired by her courage and intelligence, Claire travels to the island of Antigua to find out about Missy’s life, the extreme challenges she faced and how she managed to survive.

She embarks on an investigation which takes us beyond the paradise beaches to the hills, plantations and museum archives. Her findings underline the bravery and intelligence of black women like Missy who resisted atrocities, asserted their humanity and undermined the fabric of slave societies. Claire’s search for Missy Williams prompts her to ask that due recognition is given to the many extraordinary women through history who played significant roles in fights for freedom.

Waking from a coma speaking a foreign language

Ben McMahon from Melbourne, Australia, has had an unlikely career in Chinese reality TV after waking up from a coma speaking Mandarin. When he was 18 years old, Ben suffered a head injury during a car crash. During his early recovery he was unable to speak his native English, and could only communicate with confused doctors in Mandarin, a language he’d studied in high school. Ben regained his English but his Mandarin stayed strong and helped him secure a spot on a Chinese dating show he was obsessed with.

Has QAnon fuelled South Africa’s divisions?

What happened when a bizarre US-based conspiracy theory surfaced a continent away in Africa?

In the second part of Trending’s mini series about the impact of QAnon around the world, we report from South Africa.

At the heart of QAnon is the baseless claim that former US president Donald Trump is waging a secret war against a cabal of powerful paedophiles who run American politics and Hollywood.

But in South Africa, elements of QAnon have been translated into the local context of pre-existing tensions in society, and are helping turn South Africans against both immigrants and one another.

Fifty years since Asians were kicked out of Uganda

Compilation of stories marking 50 years since Idi Amin expelled thousands of Asians from Uganda in 1972. We hear about why they migrated there, their expulsion, and what they did next.

Jamie Govani’s grandparents always dreamed about finding a better life away from India. After getting married in the Indian state of Gujarat in the 1920s, they decided to pack their bags and move to Uganda with their young family. It was a wonderful place to grow up for Jamie, but racial segregation lingered in the background, and things began to change after Ugandan independence in 1962. She’s been speaking to Ben Henderson.

As well as in Uganda, there was also an Asian population in Kenya, who experienced discrimination. This was initially from white settlers but, after independence, it came from black Kenyans too. Following the partition of India in 1947, Saleem Sheikh’s parents fled to Kenya. His family joined a thriving Asian community there. But, they were forced to leave in the late 1960s after a rise in violence against the Asian population. Saleem tells Ben Henderson about his life.

In August 1972, the dictator Idi Amin announced that all Asians had just 90 days to leave Uganda. Nurdin Dawood, who was a teacher with a young family, initially didn't believe that Amin was being serious. But soon he was desperately searching for a country to call home. He spoke to his daughter Farhana Dawood in 2011.

Thousands of Asians who were expelled from Uganda in 1972 settled in the UK and many made the city of Leicester their home. They helped to shape the east Midlands city’s identity with lots of new businesses. Now Leicester has the largest Diwali celebrations outside of India. Nisha Popat was nine-years-old when she arrived there with her family who later opened a restaurant in the area that became known as the Golden Mile. Nisha tells her story to Reena Stanton-Sharma.

President Yoweri Museveni came to power in 1986. He encouraged exiled Asians to return to Uganda and reclaim their homes and businesses in order to rebuild the country. The economy had collapsed under the dictator Idi Amin. Dr. Mumtaz Kassam was one of the people who went back to Uganda years after arriving in the UK as a refugee. She talks to Reena Stanton-Sharma about returning to the country that had expelled her.

A London museum has agreed to return to Nigeria artefacts that were looted in the nineteenth century from the Kingdom of Benin; and the race is on to rescue a malnourished beluga whale which has swum into France's River Seine.

Plant based promises and sustainability

In Plant Based Promises, Giles Yeo a foodie and academic at Cambridge University, asks how sustainable are commercial plant based products?
This is a fast growing sector with a potential value of $162 billion by 2030. Giles travels to the Netherlands Food Valley to look at companies developing plant based alternatives and to find out what role they have to play in changing diets.
And Giles designs his own plant based Yeo Deli range online but discovers that new markets are already causing shortages of alternative proteins, so what will the future look like?

In 2019 the Eat Lancet Commission set up specific targets for a healthy diet and sustainable food production. The aim was to keep global warming to within 1.5 degrees and to be able to feed the world’s 10 billion people by 2050.
The Commission’s recommendations are best visualised as a plate of food, half fruits, vegetables and nuts and the other half whole grains, beans, legumes and pulses, plant oils and modest amounts of meat and dairy. Is there room on the plate for Giles Yeo Deli Baloney range.

Shopping online is nothing new but with the rise of influencer culture, livestreaming, and social commerce buying stuff has never been easier.

Research suggests that the production and use of household goods and services is responsible for about 60% of global greenhouse gas emissions.

So is influencer culture making us buy more - contributing to climate change? Or is it more complicated than that? In this programme we hear from Nigerian influencer Noble Igwe and eco-influencer Rosie Okotcha. As well as finding out about the growing popularity of influencers in India and the potential of Chinese live-streamers to become environmental icons.

Women crossing borders and seeking refuge

According to the United Nations, at the end of 2021, 89.4 million people around the world had been forced to flee their homes as a result of persecution, conflict, human rights violations or other events. Among them are nearly 27.1 million refugees. Kim Chakanetsa talks to two women from Afghanistan and Zimbabwe about having to leave their country.

Hajira Zaman is 29 years old and left Afghanistan in November 2021. She’d been working in a dentist’s clinic when the Taliban entered the clinic and told her she couldn’t work with a male doctor – unless she took her husband, brother or father with her. After threats from the Taliban she, her husband and young son fled the country. Hajira was nine months pregnant and had her baby shortly after arriving in Pakistan.

Nyasha Masi is a refugee from Zimbabwe living in Cape Town. She was abused by her family for being gay and forced into marriage. She made the devastating decision to leave without her three year old daughter and escaped to South Africa. She now works with the charity Safe Place International and has set up her own group for LGBTI+ refugees called Pachedu. Her daughter (now a teenager) has joined her.

War in Ukraine: Venezuela's oil opportunity?

Russian aggression in Ukraine and the world's quest to end the dependence on Russian oil and gas has created an opportunity for Venezuela to negotiate an easing of the US-imposed oil sanctions. But, as Ivana Davidovic discovers, there are also many pitfalls on that journey.

Venezuela may have the world's largest oil reserves, but years of underinvestment have severely impacted output, as professor Terry Karl explains.

Former chairwoman of the refiner Citgo, Luisa Palacios, outlines where Venezuela still manages to sell its oil and the role played by Iran in that trade. She also thinks that a sanctions deal could be made if the Maduro administration is willing to relinquish some control over production.

But Venezuela expert David Smilde is worried that political, rather than practical, considerations - in the US and Venezuela - might muddy the waters.

Caracas-based journalist Francis Pena goes on a lengthy journey to buy petrol in her home city, illustrating how economic mismanagement and sanctions are affecting day-to-day lives.

Are humans naturally clean and tidy?

From dumping raw sewage into rivers to littering the streets with our trash, humans don’t have a great track record when it comes to dealing with our waste. It’s something that CrowdScience listener and civil engineer Marc has noticed: he wonders if humans are particularly prone to messing up our surroundings, while other species are instinctively more hygienic and well-organised.

Are we, by nature, really less clean and tidy than other animals? Farming and technology have allowed us to live more densely and generate more rubbish - maybe our cleaning instincts just aren’t up to the vast quantities of waste we spew out? CrowdScience digs into the past to see if early human rubbish heaps can turn up any answers. We follow a sewer down to the River Thames to hear about The Great Stink of Victorian London; turn to ants for housekeeping inspiration; and find out how to raise hygiene standards by tapping into our feelings of disgust and our desire to follow rules.

I was the voice of Bambi – and kept it secret for years

Donnie Dunagan was born in 1934 and grew up in Memphis, Tennessee, in the midst of the Great Depression. After winning a talent show aged four he was scouted and whisked to Hollywood where he starred in several movies – including a role as the voice of Walt Disney’s iconic animated deer Bambi in 1942. But WWII would put a halt to his movie career, and Donnie eventually became a US Marine – never telling anyone about his Hollywood history until he was publicly unmasked in 2004. On the 80th anniversary of Bambi's release, he shares his story.

Every other year, someone is awarded 'Disney Legend' status for having made an extraordinary contribution to the Walt Disney Company. Floyd Norman is one of the chosen few. In 1956, he became the studio's first African American animator and worked on some of its most iconic creations. He spoke to Outlook's Maryam Maruf in 2016.

Climate change: Landmark US bill clears Senate hurdle

The US Senate has approved a bill that includes $369bn (£305bn) for climate action - the largest investment in America's history. The authors of the Inflation Reduction Act say it will cut the country's carbon emissions by 40% by 2030. We hear analysis on the bill's significance from a former UN Special Representative on Sustainability. Also on the programme: the newborns fighting for survival in Afghanistan; and the tourists left stranded in China's Hainan island after authorities announce a strict lockdown in the resort of Sanya.

Drivers protest against Bangladesh fuel price hike

Large-scale protests over the soaring cost of fuel have broken out in Bangladesh. The government increased the cost of petrol and diesel by more than 50% over the weekend. We speak to industrial economist Dr Khondaker Golam Moazzem in Dhaka.

Two more ships carrying grain have left Ukraine. Their departure means 10 ships have now left the Black Sea ports since last week, when a deal was brokered to move an estimated 18 million metric tons of grains that have been trapped in Ukraine since Russia’s invasion in February. Commodities analyst Victoria Blazhko explains how the development will affect prices around the world.

Plant based promises, diet and health

Giles Yeo learns how to make a Thai green curry with Meera Sodha. This is a recipe without meat or prawns but with tofu and lots of vegetables. If we need to eat less meat and dairy to help prevent global warming- what difference will altering our diets make to our health. For a long time now people have been urged to cut down on red meat and processed foods but if you have been eating them all your life it takes an effort to develop new habits. Plant based products that can replace for example dairy milks, cheeses, sausages, burgers and meat based dishes such as lasagne can be helpful in making this transition but are they healthier?

Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort 'raided by FBI'

The former US President, Donald Trump, says federal agents carried out a search warrant at his resort in Palm Beach, Florida on Monday. No reason has been given for the search, and there's been no comment from the White House.

It comes on the same day Democrat senators passed the landmark Inflation Reduction Act - a bill they say will crack down on America's rising prices and greenhouse gas emissions.

Elsewhere, Business Matters visits Bangladesh, where citizens are living under the grip of inflation.

Throughout the programme we're joined by guests on either side of the world: Peter Morici in Washington, and Zyma Islam in Bangladesh.

Also, we get the latest as tensions continue to simmer between the US and China over Taiwan. David Woo, a Taiwanese former Wall Street trader-turned-blogger, explains why sentiment in Taiwan is not as clear cut as we might imagine; and Neil Seeman, founder of the research firm RIWI, tells us why that's a challenge for big data science to meet.

Inheritors of partition

In homes across the UK, partition is not history but a live issue for its young descendants. Over the course of a year, Kavita Puri follows three people as they piece together parts of their complex family history and try to understand the legacy of partition and what it means to them today. She connects with a young man who goes to the Pakistani village where his Hindu grandfather was saved by Muslims; a woman who has always thought of herself as British Pakistani but a DNA test reveals she also has roots in India; a woman with Pakistani heritage and a man with Indian heritage plan their wedding and realise that their families actually originate from within an hour of each other in the Punjab.

Five years after the award-winning series Partition Voices, Kavita Puri explores the 75th anniversary of the division of the Indian subcontinent through three stories from the third generation in Britain.

She reveals that Hive was inspired by a ballet that she's collaborating on with her partner, the writer Peter Thomson, who shares her fascination with queen bees. Anna talks to Sally and Peter on a visit to a local beehive and then joins Sally during the first rehearsal with harpist Catrin Finch, who explains why the harp is perfect for capturing the sound of a beehive. Anna captures the buzz as the piece is rehearsed with the BBC National Orchestra Of Wales, and finally, the hive of activity that is the world premiere at The Royal Albert Hall.

Politics in the age of social media can often be angry and divisive. And many people feel their voices aren’t being heard by those in power.

We visit Taiwan where it’s been used to draft more than 20 laws and regulations. And in the UK, we see how Polis is helping to sort out difficult local issues.

Approximately 6% of the Earth’s land surface is covered in National Parks – but what does it take to look after these rare and special landscapes?

We go beyond the tourist trails to hear about the challenges and opportunities facing the people managing the parks.

Presenter Laura Heighton-Ginns meets the president of Gorongosa in Mozambique, a park that’s powering the local economy. Gorongosa has become the region’s largest employer and operates a number of side businesses to help with its funding.

Laura also visits Dartmoor in the South West of England, which has seen government financial support cut by nearly half over the last 10 years.

And she finds out about the oldest protected area in the world – and why its future is uncertain.

When we were kings: the truth about my father

Growing up in small-town America in the 1970s David Wright Faladé, the son of a white mother and black father, found living in a heavily racialised society a tightrope walk. He understood he was the descendant of slaves on his father’s side, but a revelation when he was 16 set him on a path of discovery that would throw into question his own place in the world and bring him face to face with the secrets of his forefathers.

He’s written about his experience in the New Yorker article, The Truth About My Father.

Jonathan Cavendish is a producer of movie blockbusters including Bridget Jones’ Diary and Elizabeth: The Golden Age. But it was his own family’s story that held plenty of untapped drama. His father Robin became paralysed from the neck down after contracting polio when Jonathan’s mother Diana was pregnant with him. The story that followed would leave a lasting legacy for people with disabilities and Jonathan would go on to immortalise it on the silver screen in his film Breathe, starring Andrew Garfield and Claire Foy. This was first broadcast in 2017.

As the receivers are fairly inexpensive it now has a network of more than 30,000 and collects data from other sources too like satellites. These data sources aren’t blocked which is why so many flights can be tracked (although they are not always named). It’s often used by fans to track celebrities, especially sports stars, it also shares information with air crash investigators. Ian Petchenik from FlightRadar24 is on the show to explain more.

New push to get women into fintech in Ethiopia
Digital payments in Ethiopia are just part of a much wider push by the government to get the country financially online. Currently most payments – including fuel bills - are paid by cash. Wairimu Gitahi, Global Communications & Knowledge Management Analyst at the United Nations Capital Development fund tells us about a new project the “Women’s Digital Inclusion Advocacy Hub.” The project is aimed at women, so they don’t get left behind in Ethiopia’s fintech revolution.

Wikipiano – a call to compose our Radio Theatre performance piece
Digital Planet is celebrating its 21st birthday this September and we’re recording a special show in the Radio Theatre (you’re all invited). To help us party we’re asking our listeners to compose a special multimedia performance of Wikipiano that will be premiered on the night in the Radio Theatre. You don’t have to be musical – just log onto Wikipiano.net and add text, video, images, compose new music (if you can), add actions for cyber soloist Zubin Kanga to perform on the night. Zubin helps Gareth add to the score and invites all our listeners to have a go themselves. The piece was composed by Alexander Schubert.

Senior Republicans condemn Mar a Lago search

Senior US Republicans have condemned the FBI's search of Donald Trump's Florida home on Monday, calling it "an abuse of power". We ask what it takes for the FBI to carry out a search - and what they might have been looking for.

Also in the programme: Russia has played down a series of explosions at a military airfield in Crimea, but could this be the beginning of a major Ukrainian offensive? And how heat and drought this year are affecting countries like never before - we hear from Iraq, from Panama, and from France.

Semiconductors: Fishing for CHIPS

The US President, Joe Biden, has launched a $280bn boost for America's technology and science industries. A new bill named CHIPS (Creating Helpful Incentives to Produce Semiconductors) is aimed at increasing domestic manufacturing, and upping the country's competitive edge against China. Professor David Yoffie from Harvard Business School joins us on the programme. We're in Ankara following reports EU diplomats are threatening Turkey with sanctions over its relationship with Russia. We also look at how economies on different sides of the world - Sri Lanka and Nigeria - are struggling to cope with global supply pressures. (Picture: President Biden holding a semiconductor.

Green Energy: Some Inconvenient Truths

Green energy: Transport

Allan Little looks at the challenges we face as we wean ourselves off gas and oil to renewable sources powering our cars, trucks, ships and aeroplanes. Green transport is crucial to a net zero future, but how transparent are the supply chains bringing the world the components we need? And how green is the electricity we are using to power electric cars anyway?

Cobalt and Lithium, two essential minerals crucial for electric car batteries are mined in the Democratic Republic of Congo and Chile - and at great human and environmental cost. Transport accounts for over a third of our Carbon Dioxide emissions worldwide; there is no other option but to switch to electric vehicles. However motorists are often still sceptical about electric cars; they’re perceived to be expensive, difficult to recharge and unable to manage long distances.

One of the biggest motor companies in the world, Ford, has just launched its first Electric Truck – targeting America’s blue-collar workers with this rugged, powerful, green machine. Will it work? Apart from driving, it is being marketed as offering independence and freedom from the grid; at the flick of a switch the trucks can send electricity back the other way, and can power a home for days.

Albert Woodfox: Freedom after a life inside

There are some human experiences which most of us find it very hard to get our heads around. In 2019, Stephen Sackur spoke to Albert Woodfox, who experienced the unimaginable torment of more than four decades in solitary confinement, in a tiny cell in one of America’s most notorious prisons. He was the victim of ingrained racism and brutality inside America’s system of criminal justice. He was released from prison in 2016 and reflected on the meaning of freedom after everything he’d been through.

This is another chance to listen to the interview with Albert Woodfox after his recent death.

We also hear from Brendan Eich, co-founder and CEO of US firm Brave, it’s promoting a similar “earn while you browse” model. And it has 25 million active monthly users.

The legendary goalkeeper forced to pawn her gold medals

Goalkeeper Briana Scurry knew at eight years old it was her destiny to win Olympic gold – and in 1996 she did. That was just the beginning: she won the World Cup and another Olympics with the US Women's National Soccer Team. Briana made history on and off the pitch as one of the few African American women on the national side and the only openly gay player on the team. But in 2010 a knee to the head changed her life. Incapacitated by pain and unable to work, Briana spiralled into depression and debt and ended up having to pawn the gold medals she’d spent her whole life working to earn. Things got so bad that she contemplated suicide. But then an ex-girlfriend introduced her to a woman who would change her life.

“Virtual” hospital visits cut relatives’ distress

In the pandemic when intensive care units were full and visitors were not allowed some families kept in touch using phones and tablets. A new study in the UK shows that this “virtual” visiting did help to reduce the distress felt by relatives – and the practice still continues to keep families in touch when they live far apart.

Training relatives to give medicines at home to ease their loved ones’ symptoms at the end of life was pioneered in Australia. This week a specially-adapted version of the caring@home programme is being launched to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island families. The practice is catching on in the UK - we hear from Mark who helped ease his mother’s pain and nausea at the end of her life.

Dr Graham Easton from Barts and the London has news of a study from India showing how small differences in the beating heart could help to predict the risk of diabetes developing. He also warns that doctors need to stop fat shaming people to help them lose weight – and how blood pressure should be taken in both arms.

After the ‘Narco-President’: Rebuilding hope in Honduras

When the president stands accused of drug trafficking, what hope is there? From 2014, for eight years Juan Orlando Hernandez ruled Honduras like his personal fiefdom. A Central American strongman comparable with some of the worst from decades past, under his presidency Honduras began a rapid descent into a so-called “narco-state”. The allegations against his government soon started to mount up: human rights violations, corruption and impunity; accusations of torture and extrajudicial killings by the police and military. And at its heart, the claim by US prosecutors of a multi-million dollar drug smuggling ring, overseen from the presidential palace itself. Just weeks after he left power in January 2022, Juan Orlando Hernandez was arrested and extradited to the US to face drug trafficking charges. American prosecutors allege he used his security forces to protect some drugs shipments and eliminate competitors.

In this week’s Assignment, Will Grant, the BBC’s Central America correspondent, finds out what life was like under the disgraced president and meets some people trying to instil a little hope in a nation which hasn’t had any for a long time. He meets Norma, the mother of Keyla Martinez, who was killed in a police cell. Initially, the police said she had killed herself, but hospital reports later proved this wasn’t the case. Now, can Norma Martinez’s campaign for justice bring a sense of hope to those who don’t trust the authorities, and have endured years of rampant corruption and police impunity?

Water shortages are getting worse with climate change. In the Horn of Africa, long periods without a rainy season have created a dire situation. The World Food Programme says up to 20 million people in Kenya, Ethiopia and Somalia could be pushed into hunger by the end of the year. Somalia, which has already witnessed decades of conflict, extreme weather and disease outbreaks, is being particularly hard-hit.

Experts believe droughts will become more frequent, longer and more intense, so what can be done to reduce their impact and the damage they inflict? Could there be a global solution to this global problem?

Ruth Alexander speaks to Michael Dunford, the United Nations World Food Programme’s regional director for East Africa; Dr Balgis Osman-Elasha, a climate change and green growth expert and regional co-ordinator for the African Development Bank, in Tunisia; and emeritus professor at the University of Nebraska Lincoln, Donald Wilhite, who founded the National Drought Mitigation Center in the United States.

Defence ministers discuss military aid for Ukraine

Defence ministers from the UK, Ukraine and Denmark are hosting a conference in Copenhagen for military aid for the government in Kyiv. The aim of the conference is to strengthen the co-operation between Ukraine and a number of mainly Northern and Eastern European countries.

The speaker of the US House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, has said that Washington cannot allow China to establish its heightened level of pressure on Taiwan as a "new normal". Ms Pelosi was speaking after China ended large-scale military drills launched in reaction to her visit to the self-governing island.

Will the US and China go to war over Taiwan?

A recent visit to Taiwan by Speaker of the US House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, has heightened tensions between the US and China. Their relationship is the worst it’s been in decades.

America has accused China of dangerous military provocations in the region. China has warned the US not to play with fire.

Add to all that Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, and concerns that China could be contemplating something similar in Taiwan, and it’s time to ask the question: Will the US and China go to war over Taiwan?

Gandhi: Architect of Indian independence

Mohandas K Gandhi’s decades-long campaign against British rule was the driving force behind Indian independence in August 1947.

The way he did it - through ‘satyagraha’, or non-violent resistance - made him one of the most famous and revered thinkers of the 20th century, and has inspired protest movements around the world.

Rajan Datar explores the experiences, ideas and people that turned Gandhi from a timid schoolboy and failed lawyer into a man bold enough to take on the might of the British Empire.

Plus, we ask whether he achieved the kind of Indian independence he really wanted, and find out why his legacy is the subject of intense debate in India to this day.

Creating a Puerto Rican superhero to save the world

Puerto Rican Edgardo Miranda-Rodriguez grew up in the Bronx, New York. By the time he was 18 years old he'd lived in 22 different places, but one constant in his life was his love of comic books. Edgardo was a natural artist and storyteller and even at primary school he would write stories for the other children. He is now a highly successful graphic novelist and has created a series based on a female Puerto Rican superhero called La Borinqueña. Her mission? To fight for social justice and save the world from climate change.

Growing up near the Italian city of Milan, Michele Crippa was passionate about food, and even as a young boy he would analyse the taste of different foods for his family. He is now a Professor of Gastronomic Sciences and an expert in food culture and history. He uses his talents in sensory analysis to teach aspiring chefs to hone their skills of taste and smell. But after catching Covid-19 in March 2020, Michele lost his sense of taste and smell in a matter of seconds. Devastating though that was, he tells Outlook's Dany Mitzman how he and his colleagues have found a way to help retrain his brain to recognise the taste and smell of different foods.

Is the US getting serious about climate change?

This week the US Senate passed the biggest package of climate change measures in American history. The Inflation Reduction Act, which is expected to be passed by the House and signed into law by President Biden, includes $369bn in funding for climate and clean energy policies. Its backers hope it will reduce the country’s greenhouse gas emissions by 40% by 2030 compared to 2005 levels. But the bill had no Republican support in the Senate, raising doubts about just how long-lasting its impacts might be. So, is the US getting serious about climate change? And why do the political divisions about what to do about it run so deep?

Zaporizhzhia workers kept at gunpoint by Russians

The Ukrainian President, Volodymyr Zelensky, has warned the international community that, unless it helps get the Russians out of the plant immediately, there could be a disaster.

Also on the programme: a firefighter in France tells about an almost unwinnable battle as wildfires rage; and we hear from someone in the US who's overseen investigations to leaks of classified official information, and insists Donald Trump is not above the law.

South Korea pardons the 'Samsung Prince'

Samsung heir Lee Jae-yong, who was convicted of bribery and embezzlement in 2017, has been granted a special presidential pardon.South Korea's government justified the move, saying the de-facto leader of the country's biggest company was needed back at the helm to spearhead economic recovery post-pandemic. We speak to journalist Nemo Kim, who also teaches politics at Soon Chun Hyang University.

Wildfires and drought are continuing to affect large swathes of Europe. We assess the impact on the shipping and wine industries.

The shortlist of seven UK cities to host next year's Eurovision Song Contest has been announced. But what are the economic pros and cons of hosting the event?

Can smells fill you up?

Imagine waking up to the smell of freshly baked bread. Doesn’t it make your mouth water? Now imagine the smell of a fish market on a warm day… still feeling hungry? CrowdScience listener Thanh from Vietnam is intrigued by the effects of smell on our appetite, and wants to know whether certain aromas can make us feel more full than others. Never averse to a food-based challenge, presenter Anand Jagatia takes us on a journey from the nose to the brain, where we find out what exactly happens when we get a whiff of various foods. He discovers how the digestive system prepares for a meal and the extent to which our stomach has a say in whether or not we want to eat, based on how appetizing the smells are around us. Anand also explores our cultural differences. In some parts of the world a stinky Limburger cheese is considered a delicacy, while in other places it could make people lose their lunch. We’ll find out why some of us get triggered in different ways than others.
