Alina Ibragimova, Food poverty, Jayson Greene

Violinist Alina Ibragimova, food poverty in the UK, Jayson Greene on the death of his daughter, and BBC Women's Footballer of the Year 2019.

Four years ago, two year old Greta Greene was killed by a piece of falling masonry while out with her grandmother. Her father, Jayson, has written a memoir ‘Once More We Saw Stars’. He discusses how he has dealt with his grief and loss. Violinist Alina Ibragimova famously performed Bach’s complete sonatas and partitas at the BBC Proms in 2015. She talks ahead of her performance of Strauss's rarely performed Violin Concerto next week at the Royal Festival Hall. The winner of the BBC Women’s Footballer of the Year is announced today. We hear what makes her game special and about the Women’s World Cup which kicks off in France in two weeks’ time with Rebecca Myers of The Sunday Times. And, two international reports highlight concerns with food poverty and the impact of austerity on families in the UK. We ask what these reports have found.
