South Africa's 'mother of the nation' Winnie Mandela dies

South African president Cyril Ramaphosa leads tributes to anti-apartheid campaigner Winnie Mandela.

Also tonight, a sparky conversation with Mike Cushman, a signatory to a letter called "Labour Against the Witchhunt" - is the row about anti-Semitism being used to undermine Jeremy Corbyn? Plus - did Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah really win 5% of the votes in the Egyptian Presidential "election"? And get more women on the television and radio, says the BBC, and quickly. And what if we don't? Jo Stevens from the Culture Select Committee says they'll hold the corporation to its pledge.
