    StoryCast 21: EP 12/21 The Beirut Blast: Ghassan's story

    StoryCast 21: EP 12/21 The Beirut Blast: Ghassan's story

    August 4, 2021 marks the one year anniversary of the Beirut explosion which killed 211 people, injured 6000 and plunged the Lebanese city into a crisis.
    Ghassan Hasrouty wasn’t supposed to be working at Beirut’s port on the day of the blast.
    He’d swapped shifts to allow him to attend an upcoming weekend trip with his wife and children.
    Ghassan had worked at the port for 38-years. He knew its rhythms well and anticipating that he may have to work through the night, he called home and asked for someone bring him a pillow and blanket.
    Around the same time, Beirut based Sky News correspondent Zein Ja’Far, was working from his apartment, less than half a mile away when he noticed smoke coming from the port.
    A fire was about ignite thousands of tonnes of ammonium nitrate, stored near Ghassan's workplace. The lives of the Hasrouty family, and Beirut’s two million residents were about to be changed forever.

    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.
    The Beirut Blast: Ghassan’s story is episode 12 of the 21-part series StoryCast ‘21

    The death of Mark Duggan: What do police killings change?

    The death of Mark Duggan: What do police killings change?

    August 4 marks ten years since Mark Duggan was fatally shot by the police and what followed were some of the most violent riots the Britain has seen for decades.

    It wasn’t just his killing that was the cause of these riots. It was a range of social issues and disputes that were ignited by his death.

    In this episode, we return to a feature brought to you last year - 'The racial killings that shamed two nations' - where Noel Phillips asked what stills needs to be done to resolve tensions between police and black communities as he looked at the deaths of two men, George Floyd and Stephen Lawrence, nearly 30 years apart and on different continents.

    The forgotten voters: Why is so little known about how the non-white vote?

    The forgotten voters: Why is so little known about how the non-white vote?

    There is not much known about the voting habits of ethnically diverse communities – there's very little polling data, and therefore a gaping hole in the understanding of people’s views and voting habits.

    But the gloves are off as politicians fight for these precious votes.

    In this episode, host Ashna Hurynag is joined by Isla Glaister from the Sky News data and forensics team and Professor Maria Sobolewska, a professor of political science at the University of Manchester.

    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
    Producer: Emma Rae Woodhouse
    Reporter: Victoria Seabrook
    Guests: Doug Gurr and Louis Buckley

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.
