    Senior Republicans condemn Mar a Lago search

    Senior Republicans condemn Mar a Lago search

    Senior US Republicans have condemned the FBI's search of Donald Trump's Florida home on Monday, calling it "an abuse of power". We ask what it takes for the FBI to carry out a search - and what they might have been looking for.

    Also in the programme: Russia has played down a series of explosions at a military airfield in Crimea, but could this be the beginning of a major Ukrainian offensive? And how heat and drought this year are affecting countries like never before - we hear from Iraq, from Panama, and from France.

    FBI search the home of Donald Trump

    Mr Trump, who was not at Mar-a-Lago at the time, said a large number of agents had entered the estate unannounced on Monday night and broken into his safe.

    Also on the programme, we go to Basra in Iraq where recent temperatures have exceeded 50 degrees Celsius, which is around 122 degrees in Fahrenheit. And we are also joined by Duke Fakir, one of the Four Tops, to remember the life of Lamont Dozier, who wrote countless hits for the Motown record label in the 1960s.

    More US cash to support Ukraine

    More US cash to support Ukraine

    The United States pledges a billion dollars in security assistance and more in economic aid. What difference will all this American money make to Ukraine's defensive war against Russia? We hear from General Sir Richard Barrons, a former commander of the UK Joint Forces Command.

    Also in the programme: an American conservative view on the United States' landmark bill committing to investment in climate change; and a new media outlet run by a global collective of Afghan women. And we'll hear about the life and career of actor Olivia Newton-John, who has died at the age of 73.

    Climate change: Landmark US bill clears Senate hurdle

    The US Senate has approved a bill that includes $369bn (£305bn) for climate action - the largest investment in America's history. The authors of the Inflation Reduction Act say it will cut the country's carbon emissions by 40% by 2030. We hear analysis on the bill's significance from a former UN Special Representative on Sustainability. Also on the programme: the newborns fighting for survival in Afghanistan; and the tourists left stranded in China's Hainan island after authorities announce a strict lockdown in the resort of Sanya.

    Also in the programme:

    A London museum has agreed to return to Nigeria artefacts that were looted in the nineteenth century from the Kingdom of Benin; and the race is on to rescue a malnourished beluga whale which has swum into France's River Seine.
