What will Donald Trump do next?
A look into the criminal probe into the Trump organisation's finances, the former president's political intentions and an uncovering of what he has been doing since leaving the White House.

Can football tackle climate change?
To kick off the Euros 2020 Championship, hosts Katerina Vittozzi and Sky Sports presenter David Garrido look at what role football can play in the fight against climate change.
They speak to Tony Stevens, head of PR at Tottenham Hotspur, the premier league club which scored full points in the 2021 football sustainability league. He shares how Tottenham's stadium is one of the most sustainable in the world and how he hopes other clubs can follow the lead - so they can score the global goal of beating climate change.
Plus climate advocate and Lewes player, Katie Rood, tells us how she combines the lifestyle of a footballer with that of a vegan environmentalist.
And climate change reporter Victoria Seabrook has this week's climate headlines including what happened on World Oceans Day and what's on the table at the G7 summit in Cornwall.

The Mexican elections: Murdered for running for mayor
On 6 June, the midterm elections were held in Mexico. The eve of voting saw inactive grenades and a severed head thrown at a polling station, five workers were killed and body parts in bags were found nearby.
The lead-up though was the bloodiest campaign period in the country’s history. More than 30 candidates have been murdered since April with many more attacked and receiving death threats.
In this episode, host Dermot Murnaghan speaks to mayoral candidate Mario Figueroa, who survived being shot in the chest at the end of last year; Gema Kloppe-Santamaría, assistant professor in Latin American history at Loyola University Chicago about the power of cartels; and Sky News chief correspondent Stuart Ramsay about the Mexican government.

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.
In episode 4 of the 21-part series, Migrant Rescue, Sky News Correspondent Mark Stone, receives a desperate text message from Syrian refugee, Bassel Shekhany.
The date is January 15, 2016 and Shekhany explains that his family and fiancé, Zanzon, are adrift in the Aegean Sea, after setting out to reach Europe from the Turkish coast earlier that evening.

Sickle cell: The lives lost and the campaign for change
Evan Smith, who had sickle cell disease, died in hospital at the age of 21 from sepsis. He had called 999 from his hospital bed after staff lacked understanding of his condition. But, why is awareness of sickle cell disorders still so limited?
Shingi Mararike talks to Dame Elizabeth Anionwu, who singer Dua Lipa honoured at the 2021 Brit Awards, about how awareness has ebbed and flowed since she was Britain’s first specialist sickle cell nurse. Plus, Evan’s parents, Betty and Charles, speak about the day they lost their son, and how they hope his legacy will be one of lasting change.
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.
