The Soprano Nadine Benjamin performs live and talks about her journey from council estate in Brixton to becoming one of the top ten sopranos
And as part of our new series Off The Rails about young people on the verge of getting into trouble and the workers and volunteers who try to pull them back from the edge - we hear from Nequela who works with young people in South London and 16 year old Chenique who has been getting into trouble for fighting.
