Gadgets & Gizmos: How tech is coping with the Coronavirus
Tech editor Steve Caplin looks at the best ways of using tech to keep in touch with those you can't visit and for home working. He admires the use of 3D printing to replace scarce oxygen mask valves, tests an app to make sure you're not touching your face and explains how theatres and film studios are reacting to the closure of live venues.

James Cameron-Wilson examines a virus-hit box office, the last there'll be for some time with the country's cinemas closing. He reviews The Hunt, in at #3 and Misbehaviour, entering at #7. He discusses the way studios are reacting to the virus, moving earlier or straight to home release. For home viewing this week, James looks at Robert Bresson's 1945 film Les Dames du Bois de Boulogne. From next week, James will, understandably, concentrate on home releases.

The Business of Film: Onward
James Cameron-Wilson looks at the UK box office, where takings are down 43% year-on-year. It's a disappointing opening at #1 for Pixar's latest animation, Onward, even though James adored it. In at #3 is Military Wives while a horror treatment of the old US TV series Fantasy Island makes #7. For home release James recommends Sidney Lumet's 1962 adaptations of A Long Day's Journey Into Night, just re-released.
