The Fellowship of the Ring – including actors Elijah Wood, Ian McKellen and Orlando Bloom – has reunited after almost 20 years for a one-off Zoom session led by actor Josh Gad for his Reunited Apart YouTube series.

Nostalgic, moving and funny, the 50-minute session had the cast, director Peter Jackson and screenwriter Philippa Boyens sharing behind-the-scenes stories from filming The Lord Of The Rings trilogy (2001 to 2003).

They even re-enact well-known scenes such as Samwise Gamgee (Sean Astin) being sassy with Gollum (Andy Serkis) over potatoes.

Complete with animation and graphics, the Asian Scientist Magazine has put together a video in which children ask an expert – in this case A*Star (Agency for Science, Technology and Research) chief scientist Sir David Lane – everything from how Covid-19's name was decided to the virus' place of origin.

The video is part of a five-part series that will be released in the coming weeks.
