Presented by Jane Garvey. Kim Longinotto has been making documentary films for more than thirty years and her latest tells the story of Sampat Pal, the leader of a movement which champions the rights of abused women in India. Kim talks to Jane about the award winning 'Pink Saris'. Tonight, the violinist Viktoria Mullova is performing Beethoven with the London Symphony Orchestra. She joins Jane to talk of how her life has changed since she defected from the Soviet Union in 1983. And, there has been a dramatic increase in the number of women murdered by violent partners. Lynne Featherstone, the Equalities Minister and Jane Keeper from the charity Refuge discuss the issues.
