Sidney Poitier’s daughter on his Oscars legacy

Nearly six decades after Sidney Poitier became the first black man to win an acting Oscar, four actors of colour are nominated at this year’s Academy Awards.

There will be a tribute to Poitier, who died in January, at Sunday’s ceremony in Los Angeles.

The BBC’s culture editor Katie Razzall talked to his daughter, Sydney, to find out more about her father’s life and legacy.
