Director of the Oxford Farming Conference and Nuffield Scholar Barbara Bray discusses the importance of nutrition with Anna Hill, as part of BBC Radio's Rethink Week. She maintains that cheap food is not necessarily the answer to the world's food problems and that countries may seek to limit food exports as they come to terms with the post-COVID environment. This is the second of six interviews about food and farming to be broadcast this week which will reflect a broad range of views.

With trade negotiations underway between the UK and Australia, ABC's Jodie Gunders gives her assessment of what the priorities are for Australia's farmers. Peter Stevenson from Compassion in World Farming says a deal does raise some concerns.

BBC Midlands Today's Ben Godfrey has been to a vineyard in Staffordshire which is thriving during lockdown.
