It’s all about Eurovision on our four-part weekly series leading up to the competition in Stockholm on 14 May. For the third show our Eurovision correspondents Fernando Augusto Pacheco and Georgina Godwin are joined by author and Eurovision expert Chris West to discuss the Eastern Bloc and we check in with our Istanbul bureau chief to find out why Turkey left the contest to create its very own version. Plus: William Lee Adams of Wiwibloggs asks if Eurovision can crack the US and we interview this year’s favourite: Russian entry Sergey Lazarev.
