For most people, the word “doula” is associated with the beginning of life. But for Alua Arthur, a certified Death Doula, it refers to anyone who helps with a transition. Since 2013, she’s helped many people transition through the end of life.

Despite the fact that British adults spend on average more time online than asleep, and use their internet connections to do everything from switching on the lights to finding a mate, access is not considered as important as the electricity that powers homes or the water running from taps.

We have a responsibility to protect our privacy in the digital age. Now, I’m not excusing the role of institutions in this human rights issue, but while they navigate the rocky landscape thrown up by the digital world, we need to get real about how to live responsibly with our data.

I presented The Biggest Story In The World, the campaign’s 12-episode investigative podcast series. It was a only small part of the paper-wide climate change effort, which served as the final major project of outgoing editor Alan Rusbridger. Keep It In The Ground had a dual purpose: to get real action to keep fossil fuels in the ground, and to tell an old story in a new way.

The BBC has released new content for the iWonder project based on the award-winning flagship BBC 2 series The Virtual Revolution. As the presenter, I had the opportunity to write the provocation around the video. Here’s a taster:
We wouldn’t have the same freedom of access if Tim Berners-Lee hadn’t released the web to the world for free. We wouldn’t have the same freedom of expression if Vint Cerf and Bob Khan hadn’t created an unbreakable network. We wouldn’t have had the same freedom of thought if the people who populated the early web hadn’t instilled their culture into the fabric of the technology. Their decisions were made within the economic, political and social climates of their time, and they have had a profound and lasting impact on the most important communication technology of our time.

We have a cracking lineup of six sterling episodes in the Digital Human stable coming atcha every Monday at 4:30pm UK from 12 October!
This series, we’re looking deeper at the things that are too human to be digital… but somehow are. Want revenge? Trying to solve a mystery? The Cartesian Split is under the microscope, or perhaps that’s just our imagination. And there’s also a special programme for Halloween to creep you out just when you think it’s safe to go online.
