    How has sexual abuse become ‘not worth reporting’ in schools?

    ‘For some children, incidents are so commonplace that they see no point in reporting them.’ This the conclusion of the Ofsted report into sexual harassment and abuse in schools. Now young people have begun to speak up about their experiences, what will it take for a culture to change?

    In this episode, Ashna Hurynag speaks to Soma Sara, founder of testimony website Everyone’s Invited; Zan Moon who is acting to highlight sexism and lack of education about respect and consent in schools, and Andrew Lord, a solicitor representing survivors of abuse.

    Can the wedding industry survive COVID?

    For over a year, the wedding days people have dreamed of have had to be cancelled, rescheduled or scaled down. But how long will it take to get the wedding industry back on its feet once restrictions are finally lifted? And has COVID changed our outlook on weddings forever?

    In this episode, host Dermot Murnaghan speaks to Kat Southwell, a bride-to-be with terminal cancer who is determined to have her wedding day; Sarah Haywood, wedding planner and spokesperson for the UK Weddings Taskforce and Sky News’ very own internet sensation bride Sabah Chouhdry.

    The New Climate War: A conversation with Dr. Michael E.Mann

    The New Climate War: A conversation with Dr. Michael E.Mann

    On this special episode of ClimateCast, guest host Samantha Washington is joined by Dr Michael E. Mann, Distinguished Professor of Atmospheric Science at Penn State University, in the United States, to discuss his new book The New Climate War.

    Mann is one of the world’s most prominent climate scientists, who first shot to fame in the 1990s when he published possibly the most famous chart in all of climate science - now known as simply the hockey stick graph - which showed how burning fossil fuels and the resulting greenhouse gases, caused global temperatures to rise. Something most of us now take for granted.

    Sky News' Climate reporter Victoria Seabrook also joins Sam in the studio to discuss all of this week's climate headlines, including a damning report published by the Climate Change Committee which said the government is failing to ensure the UK can cope with climate change already happening, how the UK is using renewable energy from Norway which could power over one million British homes using the world's largest undersea electricity cable, and how extreme weather has caused a worrying shortage of chocolate, coffee and wine.

    UFO report: Are we alone?

    On the Sky News Daily podcast with Dermot Murnaghan we examine how sightings of unidentified flying objects went from conspiracy theory to US government inquiry – after officials told American media they can’t confirm or rule out alien activity.

    We hear from Sean Cahill, who was the Chief Master-at-Arms on the USS Princeton in 2004 during a multi-day UFO encounter, plus 'UFO researcher’ Chris Jones and Scotland's Astronomer Royal Prof Catherine Heymans.

    'Freedom Day': What will it take for restrictions to be lifted?

    It was announced this week that COVID restrictions in England will continue for another month, but what factors does the government base these decisions on? A fortnight ago, the prime minister said "I can see nothing in the data", so what has changed? And how will the government decide when it is 'Freedom Day'?

    In this episode, host Dermot Murnaghan is joined by virologist and comedian Ria Lina and Isla Glaister from Sky's data and forensics team.

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.
