Bringing you arts and culture from our very own homes, Encore! remains in lockdown mode this week. Australian singer Annie Burnell gives us an intimate performance during lockdown, while pop star Lady Gaga curates a more ambitious affair, bringing together headline artists like Paul McCartney, Stevie Wonder, Billie Eilish and Lizzo for the "One World: Together at Home" concert to be telecast around the world.

We also take a look at some of the major summer festivals to be cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic and check out initiatives in the publishing sector to bring real-life readings to life online.

Finally, film critic Lisa Nesselson flags up an online masterclass from France’s Cinémathèque and brings us news of a global tour of prize-winning cinema which is now being screened beyond movie theatres.
