France rethinks its attitude to trash

As an estimated one third of all food produced across the globe ends up in the bin, we turn our eye to the issue of wastage. But it isn't just foodstuffs. Lots of things that could be put to good use or be used more than once instead end up in landfills. Here in France, one of the sectors which generates the most wastage is the construction industry, which accounts for some 70% of all waste produced in France. We find out what's being done to reduce the loss of these valuable materials.
War waste: A never-ending battle

War waste: A never-ending battle

During World War I, 1.5 billion bombshells were fired on a single frontline extending 700 kilometres from the North Sea to the French border with Switzerland. A third of them never exploded and many of them remain buried. A century later, France is still in an unfinished battle to erase these enduring scars. It could take more than 300 years to rid the soil of this toxic waste, as forgotten shells continue to pose a silent threat to humans and the environment.

France's Tarn gorges: Of myths and mountains

In southern France, we discover the Tarn gorges ? Europe's longest and deepest canyon with cliffs plunging 600 metres in parts. The area is home to a whole host of myths, such as the village of Sainte-Enimie, named after a princess. Legend has it that Sainte-Enimie cured leprosy with the healing powers of the river. Meanwhile, perched at the top of the mountains, we meet a group of friends living in a community: away from the rest of the world, in an idyllic location.

The French and hygiene: Why is the negative stereotype so hard to wash off?

Do the French have a questionable relationship with hygiene? It's certainly a stereotype that continues to stick, particularly in English-speaking countries. That's paradoxical, given that France is also famous around the world for perfume and beauty products. Attentiveness to personal cleanliness has changed over time, so what's the situation today? We take a closer look.

Poland deeply divided over LGBT rights

In Poland, LGBT+ activists have been holding marches all summer, campaigning for rights such as civil partnerships or marriage. While the liberal opposition supports them, the conservative-nationalist government certainly does not. Alongside members of the clergy, it openly opposes the movement, turning LGBT+ rights into a campaign issue ahead of October's general election. In the meantime, Polish society remains deeply divided on the subject. Our correspondent reports.

Who to stop no-deal Brexit? UK Supreme Court to rule on suspension of parliament

Do we even know the real deadline for avoiding a no-deal Brexit? The UK's Supreme Court is to decide whether Boris Johnson had the right to order parliament's longest suspension since 1945. Finland and France are telling the UK?s prime minister that he has until the end of this month to put proposals in writing in order to avoid a no-deal Brexit. But does Johnson even want a deal? Those in the front line suddenly seem more open to compromise. Could an eleventh hour settlement still be possible?
