    Amazon Alert: Crime and destruction in the rainforest

    Amazon Alert: Crime and destruction in the rainforest

    Sky News can reveal that deforestation in the most precious parts of the Amazon rainforest has reached record levels.

    Using satellite imagery, Sky's Data and Forensics team have been able to identify changes to the forest canopy - and who is to blame.

    On Sky News ClimateCast, hosts Anna Jones and Katerina Vittozzi speak to Sky News investigations journalist Kieran Devine about the exclusive investigation.

    Plus tropical rainforest ecologist Erika Berenguer mourns the dangerous amounts of the Amazon that have already been destroyed and explains why we need to do more to stop deforestation if we want to solve the climate emergency.

    Taliban 2.0 – a future for Afghanistan in their hands?

    Within weeks of the fall of Kabul, US forces and its allies left the country and the Taliban announced a caretaker government - but could old habits hamper progress? How do they gain international acceptance? And will displaced Afghans ever return?

    On the Sky News Daily podcast with Dermot Murnaghan we are joined by Islamic scholar John Butt, Hassina Syed – a businesswoman who recently fled the country – and Professor Antonio Giustozzi, an expert on the region.

    Revisiting 'Has the COVID pandemic taught us about happiness?'

    The Great British weather was a little hit and miss this summer, it’s getting darker earlier into the evening - but it’s not all doom and gloom.

    On the Sky News Daily podcast with Dermot Murnaghan, we revisit an episode we brought to you earlier this year looking at the importance of good mental health featuring American Kristen Tcherneshoff who moved to the 'happiest country in the world', former Finland prime minister Alexander Stubb and Sir Anthony Seldon, who first introduced well-being lessons for UK schoolchildren in 2006.

    StoryCast '21: EP 15/21 Tim Peake: Britain's first spacewalk

    StoryCast '21: EP 15/21 Tim Peake: Britain's first spacewalk

    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.
    Tim Peake: Britain’s first spacewalk is episode 15 of the 21-part series StoryCast ’21

    The UK has a long history of exploration, however by 2016, only one astronaut, Helen Sharman, had travelled to space bearing the colours of the UK flag and no Briton had ever experienced the most demanding and perilous experience of spaceflight. That was until one January morning in 2016. Former RAF test pilot, husband and father, Tim Peake, had arrived at The International Space Station (ISS) just weeks before.
    When mission control discovered damage to an external power unit, Peake, and fellow astronaut Tim Kopra, were tasked with its repair - a complex undertaking, fraught with danger, which could only be executed during night orbit at 17,000 km per hour.

    Migration: Why do the UK's borders continue to divide opinion?

    Migration: Why do the UK's borders continue to divide opinion?

    The number of migrants reaching the Kent coast has registered record levels this year, but it's just a small fraction of the number of irregular arrivals, the Sky News data team has found.

    But what is life like in the refugee camps? How do asylum seekers gain access to the boats that they travel in across the channel? And what are the legal implications of Home Secretary Priti Patel’s proposed "turnaround tactics"?

    In this episode, host Gillian Joseph is joined by Kieran Devine from the Sky News Data and Forensics Unit, correspondent Ashna Hurynag, and Mary Stretch from charity Calais Light.

    How do we bring to life a conversation about organ donation?

    How do we bring to life a conversation about organ donation?

    Black and Asian people represent about 10% of the UK population, according to NHS Blood and Transplant – but they make up more than a quarter of those waiting for a transplant.

    On the Sky News Daily podcast with Dermot Murnaghan, we hear from Karen Bahia – whose 2-year-old son needs a kidney – and Azeem Ahmad, who is a living donor. Plus, Kiran Bhangal from our radio team and Altaf Kazi from NHS Blood and Transplant discuss the reasons and possible solutions to the issue.

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.

Re Emma Raducanu

Dear Sirs,

I am really sick of hearing about Emma. I appreciate she is an excellent player but must I listen about her every time I turn my TV on!
She is top of the News Reports every day and has been for the past week or so!
I turn on my Computer and there she is again!
It’s making me physically sick now!
I have stopped watching any news and turn my TV off until they have finished talking about her.
Even our One Show on TV is ranting on and on about her!
It feels like harassment now.
Sorry!

Jsynick ,

Great
