Three film fans – John Dorney, Jessica Regan and Tom Salinsky – are watching every film which has won Best Picture at the Academy Awards, but to keep things interesting, the order is determined by picking them out of a hat at random. For each film, you’ll also learn about what that year’s Oscar ceremony was like, what else was happening in film that year, and how that film got made. Then at the end of the episode the team will give you their verdict as to whether or not the Academy made the right choice, before picking the film to watch next time.
