BBC PODCAST SERIES — THE WORLD ACCORDING TO SEARCH
GOOGLE RECORDS 5.6 BILLION online searches per day — and behind each one is a story. The data that’s collected spans the globe, from whole countries to tiny villages. Thanks to search, the global consciousness has now been digitised. In this podcast series for the BBC World Service I’ll be travelling across the globe in pursuit of the most popular, weird and wonderful internet searches, and the fascinating stories behind them.
Tune in, and join me on my amazing journey.
BBC DOCUMENTARY — SILENCE WOULD BE TREASON
Nigerian political activist Ken Saro-Wiwa spearheaded the resistance against Shell Oil and the Nigerian government drilling for oil in the mangrove swamps of the Niger Delta in the 1990s, and the subsequent pollution that destroyed farms and rivers, and contaminated the fishing and drinking water of the Ogoni people. This documentary details Saro-Wiwa’s last writings after he was imprisoned by the Nigerian government, and later executed.
Presented by Noo Saro-Wiwa.
Voiced by Ben Arogundade.
