Hi, I'm Ricky and this is Newsround live on CBBC this
Coming up, we'll hear from a camera operator who had a lucky escape
I was part of a BBC team caught up Mount Etna during a volcanic
explosion. The unusual kites flying
high in China... And the stars of Beauty
and the Beast tell us But first to the BBC film makers
who dodged burning rocks and boiling steam when a volcano
erupted in Europe. The team were filming
Mount Etna on the island The camera operator who filmed this
footage has told Newsround My name is Rachel Brice, and I am a
camerawoman. I was part of a BBC team caught up Mount Etna during a
volcanic explosion. In the footage, you can see that I managed to
capture this explosion happening and realised quickly we had to get off
the mountain. Quickly and safely. As you can see in the footage, I fall
over and as I have done so, there were rocks which came up and fell
down. At that moment, I thought we really
need to get off of here. At that point, I had a rock or through one
of my big jackets, and it went right down into my back, caught into
another jacket. It has caused a big hole in the middle.
Rugby now and it's the last day of the Six Nations today.

Jenny went to meet the stars of the movie...
# Certain as the sun # It was exciting living out one of my
favourite fairy tales. It is living in your childhood fantasy, it
doesn't get much better! But in still for him, anyway! It is
definitely important to your character, but why do you think that
reading is so important? It allowed me to form my own ideas, and at
times it has been a friend to me, and an escape. We must remember that
their parts of this world where girls are not allowed to go to
school because they are girls. And books are these sacred things that
not everybody can get their hands on. They are a luxury. What are your
favourite childhood books? Matilda. Roald Dahl. I was a big fan. And I
loved Philip Pullman, his dark materials, and obviously Harry
Potter! There have been quite a lot of live-action remakes, what would
you say to people who think they should be left as they are? The
technology, what CGI can do, it is a way of blowing open the stories in a
whole different way. I think it is great, it is iconic. It's a story
that has been told for generations. Disney has taken it and allowed it
to exist in a number of incarnations. That is wonderful. And
finally, what do you hope they take from the film and your betrayals of
the characters? This idea and beam of never judging a book by its cover
is so important. Now more than ever. People fear what is different. The
Beast is different. You might have a different colour skin or be covered
in fur, but beneath it, that is way more important.
Next, there's some weird and wonderful sights in the sky
Gliding through the sky above China's Sichaun Province...

It's a fitness tracker for cats and dogs that's becoming
popular in Hong Kong, in South East Asia.

of stories including: the newly discovered frogs
