A couple who got lost overnight in the Cairngorm mountains have been

:02:27.:02:28.

The man and woman, aged 60 and 57, were reported missing yesterday

:02:29.:02:33.

after failing to return from a day's hill-walking with their dog.

:02:34.:02:37.

Rescuers say all three spent the night near the summit

of Cairngorm mountain in sub-zero temperatures, and only survived

:02:41.:02:42.

thanks to the emergency shelter they'd brought with them.

:02:43.:02:50.

They were found today after a full-scale search involving

:02:51.:02:52.

police, mountain rescue teams and a coastguard helicopter.

:02:53.:02:58.

Rescuers say they were lucky to survive. It was -6 up there. The

wind last night would have been 20-20 miles per hour. Not strong

died at the scene. A BBC Scotland investigation has

found Scotland's publicly-funded elite athletes are drawn

overwhelmingly from middle The research looked at where

:04:08.:04:09.

athletes went to school. Where data could be found,

:04:10.:04:14.

it shows that almost nine out of ten of the group either went

more medals than ever before. It is a golden start for Great Britain!

:04:39.:04:43.

Over 500 receives support from sport Scotland, but who are they? There

has long been a suspicion that those on these programmes are

disproportionately from better off on these programmes are

backgrounds. But we asked sport Scotland for a demographic breakdown

:04:55.:04:58.

of the elite performance athletes. And they said they didn't have one.

:04:59.:05:05.

So we set out to find out. That meant doing some maths. We used

:05:06.:05:09.

publicly available information to work out where they went to school.

:05:10.:05:14.

We found data for over 70% of the over 500 able-bodied athletes that

:05:15.:05:18.

we fund. We decided to look at what kind of school it was. Was it a

:05:19.:05:24.

private school? And if it was a state school, was it one that served

:05:25.:05:28.

better of children? We used free school meals entitlement to measure

:05:29.:05:33.

that. Over 20% when the fee-paying schools. And almost 70% one of the

:05:34.:05:40.

best of 20% of state schools. Those two groups represented almost 90% of

:05:41.:05:44.

the performance athletes. It looks like elite sport is for elites when

:05:45.:05:48.

it comes to wealth as well as talent. I think anything that comes

:05:49.:05:55.

from public servers should have generally wide public merit good,

:05:56.:05:58.

and I'm not convinced that elite sport does that, I'm not entirely

sure that elite sport is something that is accessible to the public in

were doing enough to fulfil all athletes' potential. We are working

to get every sport which goes with a pathway from school, the community,

the performance, if they have the talent and they want to go the. We

are winning more than ever. Whether that means we are providing equal

opportunities to everyone who might be able to win is less clear.

An annual rail fares increase has come into force today.

:06:38.:06:40.

Scottish Labour had called for a freeze, as Scotrail has faced

:06:41.:06:43.

strong criticism for late and cancelled trains.

:06:44.:06:47.

But the Scottish Government says a free week of rail travel that it's

:06:48.:06:51.

funding will save some passengers more money.

Labour argues that a freeze would benefit every single traveller.
