8:30 Window on the World
Over the last seven years as many as a million people in Syria lived under siege. The walls that stopped them fleeing also prevented many of their stories leaking to the outside world. Over recent years, Mike Thomson has been using internet links and social media to get inside these isolated and often forgotten places. He has garnered compelling and moving interviews with residents in some of the hardest to reach places. We hear from long besieged Daraya, Eastern Ghouta, and IS surrounded Yarmouk to Eastern Aleppo, Madaya, Homs and Raqqa. With great fortitude and bravery many people told Mike their stories as bombs shook the walls around them.

In this week's Thursday Feature, Dr Keon West, a social psychologist at Goldsmiths, University of London, explores the good and bad of shedding your clothes. He travels far and wide to speak to those who enjoy taking their clothes off in public to find out why they do it, and what the benefits - and disadvantages - might be.
