Violinist Nicola Benedetti talks about her new Virtual Benedetti Sessions of free online tuition, and her new album of music by Edward Elgar, including his violin concerto. A new BBC initiative - Music Memories - has been launched to help friends and family of dementia patients communicate with them through music. We're joined by Sarah Metcalfe, from Playlist For Life, and by Sebastian Crutch, Professor of Neuropsychology at the UCL Institute of Neurology. Creation Theatre has found a way of involving the audience in their live streamed production of The Tempest, with actors performing in their own homes, whilst the audience respond live from their homes. Critic Charlotte Keatley explains and reviews this new interactive production. David Crosby and Chrissie Hynde remember how the killing of four Kent State university students 50 years ago today inspired the classic protest song, Ohio.
