Afternoon Newsrounders, I'm Ayshah.
Right now weve got...
heading to the Oscars.
And, who needs fireworks
when you've got drones?
First, six-year-old Maisie
from Swindon will be mixing
with the biggest movie stars
on the planet at the Oscars tonight.
She stars in a film
called The Silent Child.
She's deaf, the same
as the character she plays.
So what's it like to be six
and up for an Oscar?
It is a story so happy,
it could be the plot
of a Hollywood movie.
Maisie hadn't even acted before,
then her parents were told about a
film looking for deaf
children to star in it.
And now here are the nominees
for best live action short film.
This is the moment the film team got
together, to find out if
they could get an Oscar.
My Nephew Emmett.
The Silent Child.
Welcome on board.
And so Maisie, along with her cuddly
toy, made her way to LA.
When she got there,
she made sure she did all
the important things.
Now all we have to wait
for is to see if there
will be a happy Hollywood ending
for six-year-old Maisie.
Steve Backshall hasn't got long now
until he attempts to climb the North
face of the Eiger, but you can't
just climb a mountain
like that without doing
some serious training.
He's sent us an update
from the Dolomites where he's
to take on a smaller
mountain as practice.
The first glimpse of our mountain.
It is utterly stunning, really
imposing. I think these are the
snowmobiles that will take us up
now. We are going to use those to
get right up to the base of the
mountain and again our climb. It is
the most staggering climb. Hopefully
it will be worth the fact that we
have slogged our way across four
different countries to get here. You
can follow, progress on the see BBC
website. The expedition is not done
In the Premier League today,
Arsenal will be looking to get back

Champions League spot.
One team who have no worries
about making the top four are league
leaders Manchester City,
who take on last year's champions
Chelsea later at 4pm.
Here's someone hoping to making
sport history now - Billy Monger.
Despite losing both of his legs
in an accident, (he's
never given up on his dream
of becoming a racing driver.
I am Billy, I am here to show you
around my car that is at that lead
so I can race. Baize last year Billy
lost both of his legs in a crash
while racing. Now the aching growth
is back behind the wheel
single seater car. How does he do
I spent 12 years driving a
certain way and I have to change
everything I learned and tried a
different way. I'm getting used to
it. The adaptations are that most of
it is on the wheel. The most
important part is the left-hand
side, my floor pedal, that
accelerates the car and allows me to
accelerate in straight lines. Every
lap I do, I learn something new
about which way it is better to
control. I break with my right foot.
I have a bit more control over it.
On the right-hand side of the
steering wheel and has two paddles,
the top and being up Diaz, the
bottom down. The hand clutched to
pull away, and that is the controls
that we have come up with. It has
been a most calm place since my
accident to be back behind the wheel
of a racing car. To get back behind
the wheel is... I feel completely in
control and relax when I am out
there. It is a bit surreal, but when
it comes to that first race in
April, I will be ready by the
challenge ahead of us. -- ready for
Next, a baby monkey
helping to fly a plane.
He was saved by a charity
in Central Aftrica who've
found him a new home.
Cue the cuteness.
Meet this baby.
He has been taken to his new home
at a sanctuary in the
Democratic Republic of Congo.
He was taken from the
wild by poachers, but
rescued by a charity.
He quickly made friends
with the pilot and
seemed to enjoy the view.
But it has all got a bit
tiring, and he has had
to have a wee nap.
And look, he seems pleased
to meet the people who
will keep him safe at the sanctuary.
Take a look at these drones
lighting up the sky.
It is part of the Lantern
Festival in China.
500 drones were let loose
to dance in the night sky
for the crowd below.
Well, that's all, but we'll
have the latest football
and all the oscar goss
for you at 2:15pm.
