In the latest instalment of Beth Rigby Interviews… the show will be talking to three individuals from across the globe, from music royalty, to influential figures in politics and diplomacy, Beth and her guests will take a deeper look at global and local issues central to the news agenda today.

Legendary dancehall superstar Sean Paul, whose hits include Gimme the Light and Baby Boy with Beyonce, is set to release his eighth studio album, Scorcha later this month. On tonight’s show, he will be discussing how he is using his platform to spotlight environment protection and the climate crisis.
