Ricky Gervais, Tom Walker, Andre Previn remembered, Young adult literature

Tom Walker, winner of this year’s British Breakthrough Act at the Brits, performs his new single Just You and I live in studio. He describes his music as a mix of “hip hop, a tiny bit of blues, a bit of pop with a splash of reggae” and his debut album, What a Time to be Alive, has seen him collaborate with producers such as Naughty Boy and Steve Mac, who has worked with Ed Sheeran. Critic and broadcaster Norman Lebrecht looks at the life of the late composer, conductor and pianist Andre Previn. With the sales of young adult literature falling by a third in the last year, Charlotte Eyre of the Bookseller and publisher Crystal Mahey-Morgan discuss the reasons for the drop and where potential for the future lies for these books.
