How do we make housing more affordable? What are other countries trying - and what bright ideas might we pinch from them?

The Dome

Runit is a far-flung coral speck surrounded by shimmering blue lagoons, a tiny outpost of the Marshall Islands.

It’s also Ground Zero of the South Pacific or, as one Marshallese calls it, “a big monument to a giant American fuck-up”.

Runit is dominated by what’s called the Dome. It looks like the work of extra-terrestrials. But this is a man-made, sprawling concrete circle that encases tonnes of nuclear waste including about 400 lumps of plutonium, one the deadliest substances known to science.

The Love Boat

Matthew Carney reports on a determined group of young Chinese men and women taking action against China’s anti-gay laws. Shanghai has seen thousands of cruise ships come and go, but perhaps never one like this. About 800 special invitees are piling aboard the ship to witness the marriages of nine LGBT couples in a brazen statement against China’s law and traditional family values.

Hamish Macdonald deep dives into Manchester's Muslim community to find hard and revealing conversations happening right now.

One Love

Jamaica's rich music heritage got hijacked by a vicious and violent brand of homophobia. But along came a new generation of artists who, with a little help from the internet, are wresting it back.

Not Everyone Needs A Goat

Matt Brown reports on a radical cash experiment that challenges some deep-rooted notions of charity — and may hold the seeds of a revolution in social welfare.

We're Going on a Bear Hunt

Tiny Estonia is digging in against potential attacks from its giant neighbor Russia. And it's employing defenses far more creative than guns and boots on the ground.

Space Invaders

A new space race is on, as tech companies rush to launch thousands of tiny satellites that will tell us more about what's happening on our planet than ever before. But will the information be used for good, or for harm?
