Chilean singer-songwriter Víctor Jara was murdered 45 years ago, in the days following the coup by Augusto Pinochet against the left-wing government of Salvador Allende. On Tuesday, a judge convicted nine ex-military officers in the kidnapping and murder. Jara's widow, Joan, spoke to the BBC's history program, Witness, in 2013. We play an excerpt of that interview, where she describes the last day she saw her husband and what happened to him.
