BBC Arts - BBC Arts - Block party: The power of pixel art in the 21st Century

Monday 11:45 GMT

I've made pixel art illustrations for book publishers, magazines and advertising companies so there's hope that pixel art will be seen some day as an open art form."

When Octavi Navarro is not applying his pixel art skills to acclaimed indie video games like Thimbleweed Park, the Barcelona-based illustrator and animator produces densely-woven scenes of characters living in diorama-style worlds which he publishes on his personal site Pixels Huh.

José Mourinho must bin blame game and learn from his failings at United

Monday 11:45 GMT

More fool me, then, for wondering whether José Mourinho might have emerged from the breakdown of his Manchester United reign with even a shade more humility.

It is just a shame, perhaps, that Mourinho lacks the humility to understand that people should learn the most about themselves from failure. What he conveniently ignores is that United’s renaissance is a damning indictment of his own shortcomings, a reminder that even the greatest managers can lose form and the hard evidence that he is not actually quite as brilliant as he tells everyone he is.

Roger Federer beaten by Stefanos Tsitsipas in Australian Open fourth round

Monday 11:45 GMT

Defending champion Roger Federer is out of the Australian Open after Greek 14th seed Stefanos Tsitsipas earned the biggest win of his career to reach the quarter-finals.

Federer lumped a forehand long to leave Tsitsipas serving for the match in the fourth-set tie-break, and the youngster forced him into a backhand error to win in three hours and 45 minutes. Tsitsipas dropped his racquet in celebration and seemed to mouth "Me?" at his team before starting to cry as walked over to celebrate with them.

Keir Starmer: Northern Ireland backstop likely in any Brexit scenario

Monday 11:45 GMT

Any withdrawal agreement is likely to require a backstop, Labour’s shadow Brexit secretary, Keir Starmer, has said, admitting that a renegotiation was unlikely to be possible in the time before the UK is set to leave the EU.

Starmer has previously been highly critical of the backstop, which would keep Britain in an effective customs union with the EU as an insurance policy to prevent a hard border in Northern Ireland, with no unilateral right for the UK to exit until a technological solution to keep open the border can be found.

Saturday Night Live: Rachel Brosnahan and the less than marvelous misses

Monday 11:45 GMT

Emmy award-winner and The Marvelous Mrs Maisel star Rachel Brosnahan fulfills her New Year’s resolution by hosting for the first time.

Brosnahan is the standout as an especially deranged team member who seems to be using Ken and Barbie’s relationship to work out her own disturbing drama. Exasperated Mattel execs Travis (Thompson) and Diedre (Cecily Strong) meet their buffoonish marketing team, a group of dunces as oblivious to their product as they are to social media.

The Supreme Court's dangerous silence

Monday 11:45 GMT

Yet the U.S. Supreme Court has refused to weigh in on these obvious racial discrepancies in the criminal justice system.

Instead, it emphasizes constitutional colorblindness, which allows it to avoid confronting the judiciary's role in perpetuating racial discrimination in the U.S.. The Supreme Court has historically been viewed as a model for functioning constitutional democracies because of its power of judicial review, which enables it to act as an independent check on government.

Bernier's party would 'do nothing' on climate change, no longer wants trade with China

Monday 11:45 GMT

Maxime Bernier says that if the People's Party was to form government, he would "do nothing" on climate change, because he'd leave it up to each of the provinces and territories to determine their own plan. "My party will do nothing on climate change because environment, it's a shared jurisdiction, and provinces, they have programs for that, and so I'll let provinces decide what they're going to do to fight climate change," Bernier said in an interview with Evan Solomon, host of CTV's Question Period.
