    How can the history of the planet shape its future?

    How can the history of the planet shape its future?

    Protecting the planet from climate change is a responsibility of generations from the past and the future. It's down to individuals, corporations and governments alike to take action. So how do we increase public engagement and encourage environmental activism?

    On this week's episode of Sky News ClimateCast we take a trip to the Natural History Museum, home to 80 million specimens, spanning over 4.5 billion years. We explore why the museum has declared a planetary emergency and hear about what they're doing to raise awareness.

    Hosts Anna Jones and Katerina Vittozzi speak to the director of the Natural History Museum, Doug Gurr, about how he swapped a corporate career with Amazon UK to one in the museum world. He shares why we should all be passionate about solving climate change to fix our broken planet.

    Hosts: Anna Jones and Katerina Vittozzi

    StoryCast '21: EP 11/21 The Last Gun: Disarming the IRA

    StoryCast '21: EP 11/21 The Last Gun: Disarming the IRA

    In 2021, Sky News is marking some of the century’s biggest news events through the personal stories of lives defined by unforgettable moments from the last 21-years.
    Episode 11 of the 21-part series is The Last Gun: Disarming the IRA.

    In September 2005, the responsibility of securing a lasting peace in Northern Ireland fell on the shoulders of two unlikely men - a Protestant minister and a Catholic priest.
    Unbeknown to high-ranking security officials in both the British and Irish Governments, the Rev Harold Good and Father Alec Reid were to undertake a secret mission to bring about the disarmament of the IRA.
    To this day, what happened before and during that covert mission, remains shrouded in mystery. But now aged 84, Reverend Harold Good, speaking exclusively to Sky News, gives a searing new insight into an act that not only involved great personal risk, but on which the future of peace depended.

Missing negative feedback

Twice I have left slightly critical reviews of this show and both seem to have been removed or hidden.

Hardly surprising, really.
