We hear from Guy Taylor of campaign group Global Justice Now about concerns for any potential trade deal.

Plus reporter Michael Kaloki explores the impact of a Kenyan ban on all Ugandan chicken imports following a bird flu scare. And the BBC's Andy Mills finds out how small independent music venues are trying to stave off the threat of closure. Also in the programme, Charles Forelle of the Wall Street Journal here in London and Brooke Sutherland of Bloomberg Gadfly in New York discuss the week's highlights, including Donald Trump's first few days in office, and a finding in Britain that many women workers are still under pressure to wear high heels and apply makeup.
