Afternoon Newsrounders, I'm Ayshah.

0:00:040:00:05

Right now weve got...

0:00:050:00:08

The six-year-old

heading to the Oscars.

0:00:080:00:11

And, who needs fireworks

when you've got drones?

0:00:110:00:19

First, six-year-old Maisie

from Swindon will be mixing

0:00:250:00:27

with the biggest movie stars

on the planet at the Oscars tonight.

0:00:270:00:30

She stars in a film

called The Silent Child.

0:00:300:00:33

She's deaf, the same

as the character she plays.

0:00:330:00:36

So what's it like to be six

and up for an Oscar?

0:00:360:00:38

Lets see.

0:00:380:00:41

It is a story so happy,

it could be the plot

0:00:430:00:46

of a Hollywood movie.

0:00:460:00:47

Maisie hadn't even acted before,

then her parents were told about a

0:00:470:00:50

film looking for deaf

children to star in it.

0:00:500:00:53

And now here are the nominees

for best live action short film.

0:00:530:01:08

This is the moment the film team got

together, to find out if

0:01:080:01:11

they could get an Oscar.

0:01:110:01:13

My Nephew Emmett.

0:01:130:01:16

The Silent Child.

0:01:160:01:17

CHEEERING.

0:01:170:01:25

Hello.

0:01:260:01:27

Welcome on board.

0:01:270:01:28

And so Maisie, along with her cuddly

toy, made her way to LA.

0:01:280:01:36

When she got there,

she made sure she did all

0:01:380:01:40

the important things.

0:01:400:01:43

Now all we have to wait

for is to see if there

0:01:430:01:46

will be a happy Hollywood ending

for six-year-old Maisie.

0:01:460:01:48

Good luck.

0:01:480:01:55

Steve Backshall hasn't got long now

until he attempts to climb the North

0:01:550:01:58

face of the Eiger, but you can't

just climb a mountain

0:01:580:02:00

like that without doing

some serious training.

0:02:000:02:04

He's sent us an update

from the Dolomites where he's

0:02:040:02:06

to take on a smaller

mountain as practice.

0:02:060:02:14

The first glimpse of our mountain.

It is utterly stunning, really

0:02:180:02:22

imposing. I think these are the

snowmobiles that will take us up

0:02:220:02:25

now. We are going to use those to

get right up to the base of the

0:02:250:02:30

mountain and again our climb. It is

the most staggering climb. Hopefully

0:02:300:02:36

it will be worth the fact that we

have slogged our way across four

0:02:360:02:40

different countries to get here. You

can follow, progress on the see BBC

0:02:400:02:44

website. The expedition is not done

yet.

0:02:440:02:48

In the Premier League today,

Arsenal will be looking to get back

0:02:480:02:51

to winnning ways when they take

on Brighton in the early kick-off.

0:02:510:02:53

They are currently sixth

in the league, 13 points off fourth

0:02:530:02:56

place, and and that all-important

Champions League spot.

0:02:560:02:59

One team who have no worries

about making the top four are league

0:02:590:03:02

leaders Manchester City,

who take on last year's champions

0:03:020:03:05

Chelsea later at 4pm.

0:03:050:03:09

Here's someone hoping to making

sport history now - Billy Monger.

0:03:090:03:12

Despite losing both of his legs

in an accident, (he's

0:03:120:03:14

never given up on his dream

of becoming a racing driver.

0:03:140:03:17

Here's Billy.

0:03:170:03:25

I am Billy, I am here to show you

around my car that is at that lead

0:03:270:03:30

so I can race. Baize last year Billy

lost both of his legs in a crash

0:03:300:03:36

while racing. Now the aching growth

is back behind the wheel

behind a

0:03:360:03:41

single seater car. How does he do

it?

I spent 12 years driving a

0:03:410:03:48

certain way and I have to change

everything I learned and tried a

0:03:480:03:51

different way. I'm getting used to

it. The adaptations are that most of

0:03:510:03:56

it is on the wheel. The most

important part is the left-hand

0:03:560:04:02

side, my floor pedal, that

accelerates the car and allows me to

0:04:020:04:05

accelerate in straight lines. Every

lap I do, I learn something new

0:04:050:04:08

about which way it is better to

control. I break with my right foot.

0:04:080:04:14

I have a bit more control over it.

On the right-hand side of the

0:04:140:04:19

steering wheel and has two paddles,

the top and being up Diaz, the

0:04:190:04:23

bottom down. The hand clutched to

pull away, and that is the controls

0:04:230:04:26

that we have come up with. It has

been a most calm place since my

0:04:260:04:32

accident to be back behind the wheel

of a racing car. To get back behind

0:04:320:04:37

the wheel is... I feel completely in

control and relax when I am out

0:04:370:04:43

there. It is a bit surreal, but when

it comes to that first race in

0:04:430:04:48

April, I will be ready by the

challenge ahead of us. -- ready for

0:04:480:04:56

the challenge.

0:04:560:04:57

Next, a baby monkey

helping to fly a plane.

0:04:570:04:59

Yes, really.

0:04:590:05:00

He was saved by a charity

in Central Aftrica who've

0:05:000:05:02

found him a new home.

0:05:020:05:03

Cue the cuteness.

0:05:030:05:04

Meet this baby.

0:05:040:05:05

He has been taken to his new home

at a sanctuary in the

0:05:050:05:09

Democratic Republic of Congo.

0:05:090:05:10

He was taken from the

wild by poachers, but

0:05:100:05:12

rescued by a charity.

0:05:120:05:14

He quickly made friends

with the pilot and

0:05:140:05:16

seemed to enjoy the view.

0:05:160:05:20

But it has all got a bit

tiring, and he has had

0:05:200:05:23

to have a wee nap.

0:05:230:05:26

And look, he seems pleased

to meet the people who

0:05:260:05:29

will keep him safe at the sanctuary.

0:05:290:05:37

Take a look at these drones

lighting up the sky.

0:05:390:05:41

It is part of the Lantern

Festival in China.

0:05:410:05:44

500 drones were let loose

to dance in the night sky

0:05:440:05:47

for the crowd below.

0:05:470:05:51

Well, that's all, but we'll

have the latest football

0:05:510:05:53

and all the oscar goss

for you at 2:15pm.

0:05:530:05:56

Bye.
