4:00 am – 4:30 am BBC World Hacks
BBC World Hacks

The concept of World Hacks is simple. People are hungry for programmes and stories which complement the sometimes hard news agenda and engages or empowers them about the possibilities for positive change. News programmes rightly sound the alarm on major crises and global problems – from integration and migration – but they often forget to tell us what the solutions might be. So, taking on the big problems of our time, this new programme asks –is it possible to just hack issues like the refugee crisis, air pollution or inequality?
