Barack Obama is preparing to deliver his final keynote speech as President of the United States before handing over to Donald Trump. We look back at Mr Obama's presidency and assess his legacy on race and the economy with philosophy professor and civil rights activist Cornel West. Also on the programme: How an Indian practice allowing Muslim men to divorce their wives instantaneously is under threat. And remembering Clare Hollingworth, the British war correspondent who broke the news of the Nazi invasion of Poland. (Photo: President Obama on the lawn of the White House. Credit: Getty Images)
