The postcards made for the Eurovision Song Contest have become an institution in their own right.  Sometimes they reflect the life and times of the country that is hosting, sometimes they have a more abstract feel.  This year, we repeat the theme of such years as 1996, when the performers are followed about their daily lives.

Paxton Predicts: the 2nd Semi-Final
