Odaline de la Martinez, War Photography, Flack Review, Peter Tork Remembered

Odaline de la Martinez on the London Festival of American Music, Paul Conroy and Anastasia Taylor-Lind discuss war photography, TV drama Flack reviewed, and Peter Tork remembered.

The Cuban American conductor Odaline de la Martinez talks about this year's London Festival of American Music in which she showcases the music of women and African American composers who are unjustly overlooked. She also tells Samira about the premiere of the third part of her own opera trilogy Imoinda: A story of Love and Hate

Anna Paquin stars as a disaster PR tasked with clearing up the scandals of high profile celebrities in new drama Flack. Anna Leszkiewicz reviews the show which is UKTV’s first original drama commission.

The journalistic bravery of Marie Colvin and photographer Paul Conroy in Syria has recently been depicted on the big screen in the feature film A Private War and the documentary Under the Wire. But now that the witnesses to war can easily publish pictures from their phones in social media and on the news, has the role of the war photographer changed? Samira is joined by Paul and fellow photographer Anastasia Taylor-Lind to discuss the role of modern war photography.
