    StoryCast ’21: EP18/21 The Shooting

    StoryCast ’21: EP18/21 The Shooting

    On 22 July 2005, when Patricia da Silva learned that police marksman had killed a man at Stockwell Underground Station in London, she had no reason to second-guess news reports describing the deceased as a terrorist. The capital then was on high alert. Just two weeks earlier, a series of bomb attacks killed 52 people, injured hundreds and London was left reeling.
    Then, on 21 July 2005, four men targeted the capital’s transport network in a carbon-copy style attack.
    This time, the terrorists' bombs failed to explode and they fled.
    So less than 24-hours after that failed attack, when Patricia left for work, she knew from news reports that police were in a race against time to catch the bombers.
    She’d absolutely no idea that the block of flats where she lived on Scotia Road in Tulse Hill was already under intense surveillance; that it had been linked by police to one of the terrorists — Hussein Osman, the target of the police shooting in Stockwell.
    Or was he?
    Critically, Scotia Rd, Tulse Hill was much more than a location of police interest, it was home to Patricia, and her cousin — Jean Charles de Menezes, an electrician also from Brazil.
    On the morning of 22 July, when Patricia learned of the shooting, she couldn’t have imagined that a catastrophic chain of events had already cost Jean Charles de Menezes his life.

    Missed Connections: What rolling back on HS2 could mean for ‘levelling up’ in Bradford

    Missed Connections: What rolling back on HS2 could mean for ‘levelling up’ in Bradford

    In November, the government announced scaled-back plans for its high speed rail line from the Midlands to Leeds. The eastern leg of HS2 had been hailed as a cornerstone of the Tories’ ‘levelling-up’ agenda, so without it, can the North of England - and one town in particular – hope to flourish?

    On the Sky News Daily podcast with Dermot Murnaghan, we are joined by Labour leader of Bradford City Council Susan Hinchcliffe and Bradford-based business owner Jon King to discuss the potential impact.

    On the Sky News Daily podcast with Dermot Murnaghan, our correspondent Charlotte Lomas speaks to some of those impacted by the cladding scandal and looks at what the next stage of the Grenfell Inquiry could mean for them.

    Climate adaptation: How resilient is the human race?

    Climate adaptation: How resilient is the human race?

    Reducing greenhouse gas emissions now simply isn't enough to turn back time and prevent the impacts of climate change. For many people, its impacts are being felt right now, and the world needs to adapt to a warming planet.

    On this week's episode of Sky News ClimateCast, host Anna Jones speaks to Tricia Thorpe, a resident of Lytton in Canada, a small town that has been devastated by both wildfires and floods in the space of six months. She's building a net-zero house in the hope she can protect her family from whatever climate change throws at her next.

    Meanwhile in Uganda, Noah Ssempijja is teaching communities across the country to farm sustainably for the benefit of both the planet and their crop yields. He tells us how he's learned to adapt to the extreme weather he’s experienced.

    Are we doing enough to adapt to climate change? We ask climate scientist Dr Xi Hu from the University of Oxford.

    StoryCast 21: EP 17/21 Batman raids Buckingham Palace

    StoryCast 21: EP 17/21 Batman raids Buckingham Palace

    In September 2004, Jason Hatch dressed up in a Batman costume and broke into the grounds of Buckingham Palace. The Queen's home is protected by some of the tightest security measures in the world - but they weren't tight enough for this caped crusader, who climbed on the iconic building and made his way to the main balcony. A casual observer might have been forgiven for thinking Batman had stolen into the palace to execute a daring rescue.
    But in reality Mr Hatch was risking his life because he hadn't seen his children in more than eight years - and this superhero dad was set to stage a protest that would soon be beamed around the world.
    Would the British establishment bend to the will of Batman?


    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.
    Batman raids Buckingham Palace is episode 17 of the 21-part series StoryCast ’21

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 ,
