From the BBC World Service... Trade unions in Spain have called for a general strike in the northeastern region of Catalonia. Less than a week after the prime minister announced a snap election, we'll explain what's behind the protests. Then, Facebook remains under fire for facilitating the spread of fake news. The British culture minister is travelling to Silicon Valley to seek answers from boss Mark Zuckerberg. Plus, as Fashion Week moves from London to Milan, we'll explore why many models are drowning in debt.

 Today's show is sponsored by Sales Genie, WellFrame and Indeed.
