ARTS CHANNEL – Thursday 24 January, 9.25pm

Jo Whiley talks to Scottish musician and philanthropist Annie Lennox about the humanitarian causes close to her heart. The Eurythmics singer/song-writer is an acclaimed musician – having won 8 Brit Awards, 4 Grammys and selling in excess of 80 million records worldwide – but she is also a political and social activist that has strived to raise money and awareness for HIV charities in Africa. In response to her activist work, in 2011 she received an OBE from Queen Elizabeth II for her “tireless charity campaigns and championing of humanitarian causes”.
