8:30 Window on The World
Another Science in Action programme from The BBC World Service. Tonight the team talk to researchers who are calling for a major rethink on our attitude to air quality, they try to explain why some people become very ill with Covid and others have little if any symptoms and as nuclear material buried beneath the doomed Chernobyl nuclear power plant is becoming more active, they talk to Neil Hyatt, Professor of Nuclear Materials Chemistry at Sheffield University who says it's a small increase but needs to be monitored.

Tonight's sportscaster is Shannon Byrne from Darwin.

Lately with Karyn Hay is a late night radio show on RNZ National, with an eye on live events, an ear for music, a great sense of humour and a genuine interest in people and their stories.

After 11, on Nashville Babylon, Mark Rogers has tracks from Tom Waits and Chuck E Weiss, a rare Willie Nelson tune plus two tracks from Dylan's legendary 1966 show at the Manchester Free Trade Hall - which just so happens to have taken place exactly fifty five years ago today.
