    'Where are you my love? We're looking for you': The aftermath of the Turkey-Syria earthquakes

    'Where are you my love? We're looking for you': The aftermath of the Turkey-Syria earthquakes

    Thousands of people have died after two devastating earthquakes caused widespread destruction in Turkey and Syria. As the World Health Organization warns casualties could exceed 20,000, aftershocks, freezing temperatures and damaged roads are hampering efforts to reach and rescue those affected.

    On the Sky News Daily, Niall Paterson joins Sky News correspondent Yousra Elbagir, who is in Gaziantep, a city in southern Turkey near the epicentre of the first earthquake, and speaks to Islamic Relief worker Mohammed Hamza in northwest Syria about the additional challenges faced by aid workers in a war zone.

    Warning: This podcast contains graphic descriptions of the aftermath of the earthquakes throughout. You may prefer to skip over the descriptions of grieving relatives between 2.50 and 5.20 minutes, and 9.25 and 12.40 minutes.

    What's Rishi Sunak trying to achieve with his rejigged cabinet?

    What's Rishi Sunak trying to achieve with his rejigged cabinet?

    Rishi Sunak has completed his first cabinet reshuffle - a little over 100 days after he became prime minister.

    After sacking Nadhim Zahawi, he's given Greg Hands the job of Conservative Party chair - and some key government departments have had their briefs changed.

    On the Sky News Daily, Niall Paterson asks our deputy political editor Sam Coates about what the prime minister is trying to achieve with the changes and what it tells us about his priorities and why changing government departments can backfire.

    How do TV crime dramas get it right?

    How do TV crime dramas get it right?

    From The Wire to Line of Duty, how police go about catching bad guys has always made compelling TV, but does it matter if the drama reflects reality. As the final episode of the hit TV show Happy Valley airs, how realistic is the show’s portrayal of small-town policing, and crime, in the UK?
    On the Sky News Daily, Niall Paterson speaks to a serving police inspector, Liz Cokayne-Delves, who thinks the show is the most accurate on TV, and barrister and former police officer Jeanette Ashmole, who advised the show, about why it matters TV writers get things right.

    Ukraine War Diaries: EP43 - Strollers, sacrifice & the Spring offensive (Jan 30-3 Feb)

    Ukraine War Diaries: EP43 - Strollers, sacrifice & the Spring offensive (Jan 30-3 Feb)

    Now more than half-way through the winter, and more than 11 months since his family fled the country, Ilyas makes peace with the realisation that his eldest son is successfully assimilating into life in Poland, a re-location forced upon his family by the Russian invasion.

    In Kyiv, conversations with his comrades on the front line forces Seva to yet again match the odds of mounting Russian pressure against the Ukrainian need for ever greater Western firepower.

    Meanwhile, amid growing fears over a Russian Spring offensive - and the prospect of a major military push against Kyiv - Oksana redoubles her efforts to cherish special moments with her loved ones.

    OUR DIARISTS

    Ilyas is an IT specialist and married father who fled from Kyiv to Lviv shortly after the war started. His wife Natalia, and two young sons are taking refuge in Poland. As of February 2023, Ilyas is back living in the family apartment in Kyiv.

    Seva, 41, is a company CEO and husband to Oksana. Before the war, he travelled across Europe for business. Now, he makes regular supply drops of medical aid and rations to Ukrainian troops on the front line in Eastern Ukraine. He’s originally from a small village near Dnipro.

    Oksana, 35, works in overseas education. She lives with her husband, Seva, in an apartment complex in central Kyiv. Many of Oksana’s closest friends have left the country to begin new lives in Europe. Some may never return. She’s continues to try and make a life there.

    Ukraine War Diaries uses first-person audio, recorded on the ground in Ukraine, to give an intimate day-to-day perspective of life in a war zone.

    EP43 diary entries were recorded using WhatsApp voice note.
