This week the Oscar happened! And Leo didn’t win! Also, Captain America: The Winter Soldier keeps getting closer and we are getting more articles. Here’s how the week started.
BBC2’s Shakespeare event The Hollow Crown premieres with Richard II, and there’s been loads of info about it. Also, old franchises are back and Hiddles is a tennis nerd.
