    STORYCAST: Miracle Boy

    STORYCAST: On 26th December 2004, one of the deadliest disasters in modern history played out when a Tsunami led to almost 230,000 deaths in south east Asia. Amid the devastation, a Sky News camera crew discover an 8-year-old boy. Their subsequent report is seen by Cristiano Ronaldo, the Portuguese footballer, known to many as the greatest player of his generation, but less so for his role in this remarkable survival story.

    Martyred by the mafia: How Italy is putting organised crime on trial

    On 21 September 1990, Rosario Livatino was killed by mafia mobsters on his way to work. He was an investigative magistrate leading an inquest into corruption and the mafia. Since he was killed, he’s been praised by two Popes, declared a martyr, and last Sunday, on 9th May, he was beatified by the Catholic church.

    In this episode, host Jonathan Samuels is joined by lawyer Francesco Cavallo who explains what the mafia will do to be impenetrable, and Dr Anna Sergi talks through the story of how this year, the ‘number one enemy’ has been taken to court in a historic trial.

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.
