    Crowdstrike chaos: What are the lessons from the world's biggest IT failure?

    It’s been an extraordinary day of cancelled flights, disrupted businesses, problems for healthcare and TV stations not being able to get on air (ahem). 

    And all because of an update for Microsoft Windows.
     
    So what caused one of the biggest IT failures ever seen – and what do we know about Crowdstrike, the company which released the update?  

    Ali Fortescue’s in for Niall to discuss it all with our science and technology editor Tom Clarke and data and forensics correspondent Tom Cheshire. 
        
    For further background from Sky News, you can read Tom Clarke’s analysis on the questions Microsoft now has to answer here.

    Plus, Niall speaks to Maggie Oliver, a former GMP detective constable who campaigns for greater accountability from the police.

    Trump, Biden and a divided States

    Trump, Biden and a divided States

    President Joe Biden has stressed the need for divided Americans to come together as he addressed the nation, after Donald Trump was shot in an assassination attempt.  
      
    As former President Trump heads to the Republican National Convention to receive the party's nomination for the upcoming election, will he seek to 'lower the temperature' or capitalise on the polarisation of the nation? 
      
    On today's Daily, Niall Paterson is joined by our US correspondent James Matthews to explore how realistic President Biden’s calls for unity are during this heated election campaign. 
      
    Plus, Dr James Cooper, associate professor of history and American studies at York St John University, explains why political violence is nothing new in the US.
