and on BBC One we now join the BBC's news teams where you are.

:00:00.:00:00.

as a Tube strike paralyses the transport network,

:00:00.:00:09.

It is a case of just do the best you can, really.

:00:10.:00:21.

I'm so frustrated that the trade unions have organised this strike

:00:22.:00:24.

And the strike even caused some university students

:00:25.:00:27.

The Princes Trust tells us nearly half of young Londoners don't feel

:00:28.:00:32.

# Just for once don't stop and stare... #.

:00:33.:00:43.

Here come "The Girls" - we go behind the scenes of

:00:44.:00:46.

Welcome to BBC London News, with me, Riz Lateef.

:00:47.:00:58.

Although for millions of commuters it's anything but -

:00:59.:01:03.

trying to get home after a chaotic start to the week.

:01:04.:01:07.

And still to come this week, more strikes on Southern rail

:01:08.:01:09.

and industrial action by BA cabin crew.

:01:10.:01:13.

Today's action affected much of the Tube network and closed

:01:14.:01:16.

all underground stations in central London.

:01:17.:01:19.

We start tonight with our Transport correspondent Tom Edwards

:01:20.:01:21.

This was a long queues, delays and the disruption. This was Waterloo.

:01:22.:01:39.

Commuters switched to the buses. It is a nightmare because I'm trying to

:01:40.:01:43.

get to work and I will get in later. Any sympathy for the strike? Some, I

:01:44.:01:49.

know what they are after. It seems to be OK, what they want, but it is

:01:50.:01:54.

wrong affecting people trying to get to work. At Finsbury Park,

:01:55.:01:59.

frustration. Many did not know about the strike, and they could not get

:02:00.:02:02.

onto the packed buses. Horrible, horrible. I have been waiting years

:02:03.:02:12.

since 530. You have not been here since then, have you? Yes. I have

:02:13.:02:17.

not been able to get on yet, disability. At Clapham Junction, the

:02:18.:02:25.

stations struggled to cope. Commuters switch to the trains. At

:02:26.:02:29.

one point overcrowding meant it had to be evacuated. And this was

:02:30.:02:35.

Victoria. To be honest, I do not know why they are striking but it is

:02:36.:02:39.

affecting me. I am just trying to be on time. The roads took the brunt

:02:40.:02:45.

with average speed dropping to two miles an hour in some areas as old

:02:46.:02:50.

heritage buses were brought back into service to try and help. The

:02:51.:02:55.

Thames Clippers on the Ripper coped well, but this was structured. It is

:02:56.:03:00.

not our fault, we are paying money, OK? We should not have to walk or

:03:01.:03:08.

run. This was the bus queue at Liverpool Street and that stretched

:03:09.:03:12.

around the station. While many took to two wheels and cycled, the bike

:03:13.:03:17.

hire scheme did have some glitches. This was elephant and Castle. This

:03:18.:03:22.

dispute goes back to 2015 and the closure of all London Underground

:03:23.:03:27.

ticket offices and the loss of 838 jobs. Abundant underground now

:03:28.:03:32.

admits more staff are required on the Tube but the sticking point and

:03:33.:03:35.

the reason for the strike is how many? At King's Cross, Mark Hughes

:03:36.:03:43.

for cabs and buses, there were some Tube teams but not many. Is this the

:03:44.:03:50.

24-hour strike? I do not support it, it is ridiculous. They have to do

:03:51.:03:56.

what they have to do. This strike has reduced London's transport

:03:57.:04:00.

system to a crawl. The badges for commuters is that this dispute has

:04:01.:04:04.

not yet been resolved. -- the bad news.

:04:05.:04:11.

The strike is not officially over -- the strike is now officially over,

:04:12.:04:17.

had finished half an hour ago. However, people, as you have seen,

:04:18.:04:21.

people are queueing and waiting to see if they can get in, more out of

:04:22.:04:25.

hope than expectation. Looking at the official statistics that

:04:26.:04:28.

Transport for London have given to us, they have said that 70% of

:04:29.:04:33.

stations did eventually opened today and also all Tube lines had a

:04:34.:04:42.

service. That might be the case, but it has been a miserable day if you

:04:43.:04:47.

are a commuter. What it also shows is that whoever the mayor is, the

:04:48.:04:49.

transport union still wield considerable in London.

:04:50.:04:54.

Thank you for that update, Tom Edwards.

:04:55.:04:59.

Well, commuters aren't the only ones frustrated because today

:05:00.:05:01.

was the first day of exams for many university students.

:05:02.:05:03.

If that wasn't stressful enough, the Tube strike meant some

:05:04.:05:06.

arrived late or missed their assessments altogether.

:05:07.:05:07.

Here's our education reporter Marc Ashdown on a testing

:05:08.:05:10.

The start of exam season could not have come at a worse time. Thousands

:05:11.:05:22.

of university students were among those in today's commuter crush, not

:05:23.:05:24.

the kind of cramming they had in mind. Most did make it, but not

:05:25.:05:31.

without a real fight. Parts of the station have been closed, so we got

:05:32.:05:35.

a one-hour bus to Shepherd's Bush and running from beer to hear, which

:05:36.:05:39.

meant we were just in time for the exam, but it was quite stressful,

:05:40.:05:43.

probably more stressful than the exam itself! That led to claims from

:05:44.:05:50.

many on social media that it is unfair to expect students to sit

:05:51.:05:54.

exams during strikes. I have been up since five o'clock this morning

:05:55.:05:57.

because we had to leave early. I think they should have rescheduled.

:05:58.:06:01.

When you look at it, I understand that they have booked this place,

:06:02.:06:06.

but I think more for the students have to commute you. You are not

:06:07.:06:09.

going to perform well after you have done that. It took us more than one

:06:10.:06:13.

hour to come down from Waterloo and cost ?50. We will be waiting to more

:06:14.:06:21.

minutes and not like the 15 minutes we had to wait in the morning. We

:06:22.:06:25.

will have to get up earlier to make sure that we get here in time. A bit

:06:26.:06:29.

of a nightmare. We were exhausted before the exam. King's Lynn did not

:06:30.:06:34.

want to give us an interview but they have said they will continue to

:06:35.:06:38.

run exams all the key. They have said they are working with students

:06:39.:06:42.

to review the situation and allow flexibility, where possible, for

:06:43.:06:46.

those affected by the strikes. It was a similar story in Camden where

:06:47.:06:51.

UCL students struggle to get to their exams. It is so difficult to

:06:52.:06:55.

get these exams arranged anyway that on this occasion we have all been

:06:56.:07:02.

expected to make the effort to get to the exam on time. There are more

:07:03.:07:09.

exams across London all week, the Tube may or may have been done for

:07:10.:07:14.

one day, but the next Southern rail strike begins tomorrow.

:07:15.:07:18.

Well, the Mayor, who during his election campaign said he would roll

:07:19.:07:21.

up his sleeves to make sure there are zero days of strikes,

:07:22.:07:24.

So does he see it as a sign of failure?

:07:25.:07:27.

Here's our political correspondent, Karl Mercer.

:07:28.:07:31.

Sadly, not to each other, but fighting a war of

:07:32.:07:35.

The Mayor and Transport For London condemning the strikes...

:07:36.:07:39.

Their only common ground they claim - a willingness to talk.

:07:40.:07:49.

Yeah, we are absolutely open to talks at any moment in time. We will

:07:50.:07:55.

get back there tomorrow, as soon as they want. Get on with it. We have

:07:56.:07:59.

to resolve these things amicably around the table. I would suggest

:08:00.:08:03.

once they get through this we get back around the table.

:08:04.:08:05.

Are you discussing when you will talk them? We have said that we will

:08:06.:08:18.

do this through the auspices of ACAS. We have made it clear to them

:08:19.:08:21.

that we are available for talks and we would expect them to be in

:08:22.:08:26.

contact with a similar way. But nothing is planned as we speak?

:08:27.:08:28.

Nothing at the moment. Not good news then for Londoners

:08:29.:08:29.

who battled to work today. I think the strike today is

:08:30.:08:38.

completely unnecessary and causing misery to millions of commuters.

:08:39.:08:43.

Businesses will lose millions of pounds in revenues and patients will

:08:44.:08:46.

not be able to reach their hospital appointments, the strike could have

:08:47.:08:52.

been avoided. We have to get the mere and the attention of the senior

:08:53.:08:56.

team to let them know that we cannot essentially be pushed away with an

:08:57.:08:57.

inadequate offer. It's an embarrassment for the Mayor,

:08:58.:08:59.

who said during his election campaign he'd aim for zero

:09:00.:09:02.

days of strikes... Much harder to deliver

:09:03.:09:04.

when you're actually in power. And to put more staff back

:09:05.:09:06.

in stations to help solve the dispute would mean taking money

:09:07.:09:09.

from somewhere else. If as a result of this we must

:09:10.:09:15.

change things within our organisation, to ensure that we

:09:16.:09:18.

provide that right service at the front line, those of the decisions

:09:19.:09:21.

people make and that is what we will do. So you might have to move the

:09:22.:09:27.

Budget is around? It is not about extra money, it is about moving the

:09:28.:09:29.

Budget above. The politics of the strike will be

:09:30.:09:32.

far from the minds of commuters, but it seems they have also put

:09:33.:09:35.

the Mayor at odds with his party. Would you like to see the Labour

:09:36.:09:42.

Party nationally condemn the strike for the damage caused to the economy

:09:43.:09:47.

of London? All I can talk about is London and I know that the strike

:09:48.:09:50.

could have been avoided, I know that it is unnecessary. The Ljubomir has

:09:51.:09:55.

described this as unnecessary, the strike. Well, look, I was not in the

:09:56.:10:00.

room when the discussions were taking place. But I do know that

:10:01.:10:07.

there is a ledger -- legitimate beef when we lose that much money to the

:10:08.:10:09.

economy. Not quite on the same

:10:10.:10:21.

page it would seem then. The Mayor's immediate focus

:10:22.:10:24.

though will be on getting So today's strike may

:10:25.:10:27.

have just finished, Yes, not the start that the unions

:10:28.:10:34.

and the London mayor would have wanted. But the unions have shown

:10:35.:10:40.

Sadiq Khan that they can bring London to a standstill and they will

:10:41.:10:43.

be hoping to get back around the table and talk. As I have said Anton

:10:44.:10:47.

said in his piece, this comes down to money and the numbers. TFL and

:10:48.:10:52.

the mayor has said that they will put 200 staff back in and of they do

:10:53.:10:56.

that, if not more than that, because the unions have said that is not

:10:57.:10:59.

enough, they will have to find the money from elsewhere in the TFL

:11:00.:11:02.

Budget, it is a tricky one. And as we mentioned earlier,

:11:03.:11:03.

this is a week that's going to test Yes, they will get home tonight and

:11:04.:11:11.

those of the travellers who have come from further afield and perhaps

:11:12.:11:14.

using Southern rail, they will be facing two days of strikes, strikes

:11:15.:11:19.

on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, that will bring that network to a

:11:20.:11:22.

standstill and there will be severe disruption on the other days and we

:11:23.:11:25.

know that British Airways cabin crew are beginning a 48 hours strike

:11:26.:11:32.

tomorrow as well. For the moment, Karl Mercer, thank you.

:11:33.:11:39.

We will have more on those other strikes later in the programme.

:11:40.:11:44.

Well, strikes aside, stay with us because still to come tonight...

:11:45.:11:51.

I will be speaking to Gary Barlow about this new musical and the

:11:52.:11:57.

producer Tim Firth. Although the latest weather to come later in the

:11:58.:11:59.

programme. -- all of the latest. Young people living in the capital

that the Prime Minister introduced new measures to spot the signs

:12:24.:12:26.

and you've given up, Feeling despair was just

part of life for Faz growing up in east London,

:12:30.:12:33.

but the serious mental From the age of about eight years

:12:34.:12:35.

old I have been feeling I did not know what that was

:12:36.:12:41.

until recently, if I am honest. I was just really sad all the time,

:12:42.:12:45.

I just felt like I was not good enough and didn't have any goals

:12:46.:13:02.

and hopes for the future More than 2000 16 to 25-year-olds

:13:03.:13:05.

were asked about their state 37% felt it down or depressed

:13:06.:13:09.

and 46% were anxious. It is about giving them the skills

:13:10.:13:32.

and the confidence as early as possible to help them with their

:13:33.:13:40.

struggle. But now Faz has been supported by the Prince's Trust and

:13:41.:13:44.

is mentoring other young people in London suffering with depression. It

:13:45.:13:47.

is a process that will now be supported in schools by the

:13:48.:13:50.

Government. We will pilot a new approaches such as offering mental

:13:51.:13:54.

health first aid training for teachers and staff, to help them

:13:55.:13:58.

identify and assist children experiencing mental problems. We

:13:59.:14:04.

will try new approaches to ensure that schools and colleges work

:14:05.:14:09.

closely with local NHS services to help local mental health services.

Campaigners have said every person that is given out was a poor product

:14:13.:14:15.

on this will reduce the long-term burden on the NHS. For Faz it has

:14:16.:14:21.

meant getting back a life worth living. To know that there was

:14:22.:14:24.

people younger than me going through the same thing, that breaks my heart

:14:25.:14:28.

because I felt like I was alone, no one would understand me and was no

:14:29.:14:33.

way I could get out of this. To be added are pleased I was in and be

:14:34.:14:36.

able to give support to other young people, I see no reason why I should

:14:37.:14:39.

not help them. Sarah Harris, BBC London News.

:14:40.:14:45.

A jury has heard how police failed to tape off a pathway under a tree

:14:46.:14:48.

in central London that later fell causing the death of housekeeper.

:14:49.:14:51.

Teresita Sison was walking to work in October 2014

:14:52.:14:53.

when the tree came down, causing a wall to collapse on her.

:14:54.:14:56.

The tree was uprooted in high winds as the UK was battered

:14:57.:14:59.

by the remnants of Hurricane Gonzalo.

:15:00.:15:00.

The inquest at the Royal Courts of Justice also heard

:15:01.:15:03.

that the 80-year-old poplar showed signs of decay.

:15:04.:15:09.

Thousands of police officers are to be asked if they want to be

:15:10.:15:12.

routinely armed with a gun or electric Taser.

:15:13.:15:15.

The Met says more than 90% of officers are currently unarmed

:15:16.:15:18.

and there were no plans to change this.

:15:19.:15:20.

The Metropolitan Police Federation, which represents London's 32,000

:15:21.:15:22.

officers, says that with more of them being armed to counter

:15:23.:15:25.

the threat of terrorism, it was only fair to ask them

:15:26.:15:27.

And Karl mentioned the ongoing problems on Southern rail.

:15:28.:15:41.

Well, one woman has told the BBC how she feels

:15:42.:15:44.

she was forced to quit her job because of the poor service.

:15:45.:15:46.

As Sonja Jessup reports, both sides in the long-running

:15:47.:15:49.

bitter dispute have been brought together as part of

:15:50.:15:51.

a special televised debate being broadcast tonight.

:15:52.:15:58.

Taking centre stage, but would they have any answers? Southern rail and

:15:59.:16:05.

the RMT union faced a studio audience, many of whom had personal

:16:06.:16:09.

experience of the ongoing rail crisis. Emma Green, a single mother,

:16:10.:16:16.

had started a new job in London only to feel forced to quit. Literally

:16:17.:16:18.

from the first aid I experienced horrendous delays, getting warm on

:16:19.:16:26.

average 2.5 hours after I had left the office and up to as bad as for

:16:27.:16:31.

hours. My question to the panel is how many more people's lives must be

:16:32.:16:35.

affected, how many have to leave their jobs or lose their jobs and

:16:36.:16:38.

have their family life significantly disrupted as a result of your

:16:39.:16:43.

services? And may I add, these are not purely down strikes, they were

:16:44.:16:49.

bad before the strike started. CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

:16:50.:16:52.

. Southern rail has been locked in a bitter dispute with unions over

:16:53.:16:58.

driver only operated trains. What is stopping the settlement is the

:16:59.:17:01.

attitude of the company towards changing the way that the trains are

:17:02.:17:05.

operated and they are backed up by the DFT and Chris Grayling and they

:17:06.:17:13.

are refusing to come to a compromise. I am deeply sorry for

:17:14.:17:15.

the inconvenience caused to customers now and I think the

:17:16.:17:18.

union's action is grossly disproportionate and I also think

:17:19.:17:21.

that they are causing immeasurable damage, not only to passengers, but

:17:22.:17:25.

also to the regional economy. There were questions also for politicians.

:17:26.:17:30.

Why had they not done more? When it comes down to it, we the Suju is

:17:31.:17:35.

about safety, not politics, so there must be a technical solution rather

:17:36.:17:40.

than a political intervention. Have we not been let down by the

:17:41.:17:42.

government on this issue, should they not have intervened earlier? It

:17:43.:17:45.

is not the government that is refusing to drive trains which the

:17:46.:17:48.

independent safety regulator has talked about. Others have suggested

:17:49.:17:54.

that the late -- Mayor of London should get involved directly. They

:17:55.:18:01.

have to respond to local concerns, that transforms the network and we

:18:02.:18:04.

do not have that for some of these train operators at the moment. The

:18:05.:18:09.

main sticking point remains, would a second person be employed on every

:18:10.:18:13.

train? People want this brought to an end and you can do that. You can

:18:14.:18:18.

do that as well. But you will not do that. If you can guarantee a second

:18:19.:18:25.

person on steamy tangle and Andrew Wright a deal now. BBC London

:18:26.:18:31.

understands the dead talk informally afterwords, but no deal was reached.

:18:32.:18:35.

The moral's strike is still set to go ahead. -- to moral's strike. --

:18:36.:18:48.

BBC London understands the dead speak informally afterwords but no

:18:49.:18:49.

deal was reached. And you can see the full debate

:18:50.:18:52.

here, on BBC One. The Girls is a new musical comedy

:18:55.:18:57.

written by Take That's Gary Barlow The two grew up together in the same

man Gary Barlow and writer Tim Firth. Is it not wonderful that the

:19:40.:19:44.

story is in it third incarnation? It is, and a reason to do it was that

:19:45.:19:51.

the play followed the movie and any sense, the musical allowed us to

:19:52.:19:57.

expand that story and spend more time on new story elements like

:19:58.:20:00.

those of the husbands and the children. So it gave a new life to

the full story. Seems on stage with the task of the original calendar

it? Initially my friend Tim Firth, who I have known for many years, I

:20:28.:20:31.

will not even count them! But I have watched them have success with the

:20:32.:20:35.

film and the play and we both went to watch it up in Milton Keynes and

:20:36.:20:39.

I was sat there are, initially wondering why he had invited me, but

then I realised what he wanted to do, that was the good music to it.

:20:44.:20:49.

It is very moving, it is a true story and it is in Northern, very

:20:50.:20:53.

moving piece and instantly, I could hear the music and I could hear what

:20:54.:21:02.

I could bring to this. The women whose amazing true story

:21:03.:21:07.

has inspired the film, play and musical have much to be proud of,

:21:08.:21:11.

having helped to raise nearly ?5 million for the charity Blood Wise.

:21:12.:21:19.

What has your input added to this story? What has been musical version

:21:20.:21:24.

of it done? The funny bits seem even funnier because the sad bits are

:21:25.:21:31.

sadder. It is broken. They will rehearse for another couple of weeks

:21:32.:21:35.

but prepare for laughter, tears and sticky buns when the new musical,

:21:36.:21:42.

The Girls, opens at the London theatre.

:21:43.:21:45.

Let's return to our top story now and commuters are trying to get home

:21:46.:21:48.

We can join Tom Edwards at Oxford Circus now.

:21:49.:21:51.

Although the strike ended almost an hour ago, how are things looking?

:21:52.:21:59.

Well, some people, would you believe, are still waiting to see if

:22:00.:22:05.

the Tube will open. I think it is going to be a very long wait. TFL

:22:06.:22:10.

have said services will not return to normal until tomorrow. Also, in

:22:11.:22:18.

the last few minutes we have received a statement from Downing

:22:19.:22:20.

Street from the Prime Minister Theresa May who has called this

:22:21.:22:23.

action unfair and unjustified. What you must remember is that this

:22:24.:22:28.

dispute is far from over, there is a long way to go. It has not yet been

:22:29.:22:33.

resolved. OK, well, with the latest from

:22:34.:22:36.

Oxford Circus, Tom, thank you very much.

:22:37.:22:38.

Well, as you can imagine, social media has been in overdrive

:22:39.:22:41.

today as people struggled into and now back from work.

:22:42.:22:43.

Our correspondent Alex Bushill has a round-up of some of the best posts

:22:44.:22:46.

Liverpool Street station, the queue for the bus that said it all. Many

:22:47.:22:58.

wondered if it would never end. Others had anticipated just how hard

:22:59.:23:02.

the journey end would be, like Jacqueline who posted this... Some

:23:03.:23:09.

were lucky, however, extremely lucky, like one commuter who posted

:23:10.:23:12.

this picture of what he said was his eerily quiet train.

:23:13.:23:26.

This year had a more scenic route on one of the vintage buses laid on to

:23:27.:23:31.

cope with the demand. -- this viewer. Both were oblivious to what

:23:32.:23:39.

others were enduring. Yes, still no end in sight. There were queues

:23:40.:23:44.

everywhere jubilant. Even for the tens of thousands who walked here.

:23:45.:23:52.

This prompted all sorts of comparisons like this from Clara...

:23:53.:24:01.

Many agreed, if you did not laugh, you would cry. Alex Bushill, BBC

:24:02.:24:02.

London News. That is so true. Time for a check on the weather,

:24:03.:24:09.

and Wendy, it's not great out there for anyone struggling to get

:24:10.:24:12.

home, is it? Yes, the weather did not help. We

:24:13.:24:18.

started OK but by the time ago to the middle of the afternoon. It was

:24:19.:24:23.

a case of raindrops on Windows from the North West. And by the time we

:24:24.:24:28.

got to sunset, it was pretty glum, damp and grey as well. But it was

:24:29.:24:33.

not too cold. The attempt was 11 degrees in London, Sir David is

:24:34.:24:36.

beginning mild but it will turn much colder as they go through it. There

:24:37.:24:39.

is some colder weather to come tonight. Here is the brain that we

:24:40.:24:43.

had throughout the day and some quite heavy burst of it. Not least,

:24:44.:24:47.

a little line of showers that followed on. That was just around

:24:48.:24:51.

this evening's rush hour. That is now out of the way and we will have

:24:52.:24:55.

dry and clear conditions for most of tonight with a bit of a breeze

:24:56.:25:00.

picking up. Little bits of patchy cloud as well and that means we will

:25:01.:25:03.

not have temperatures falling below freezing, that agrees with that

:25:04.:25:07.

little bit of cloud. We are looking at loads of three or 4 degrees

:25:08.:25:11.

across London and the Home Counties and it will be each cellist Antony

:25:12.:25:14.

and Cleopatra model. We will have sunshine to moral first thing at

:25:15.:25:21.

least, it will be a breezy day once a day gets going and that sunshine

:25:22.:25:25.

is replaced by some cloud from a wide weather front that will dry

:25:26.:25:27.

slowly over the waters and introduce perhaps one or two patch outbreaks

:25:28.:25:30.

of rain towards the evening's rush of. Temperatures, the notch or two

:25:31.:25:36.

Matt Gallon on what we had today, around seven or 9 degrees but the

:25:37.:25:39.

really cold weather sets in eventually during Wednesday. This

:25:40.:25:43.

cold front will go through, then we have been subjected to this

:25:44.:25:46.

North-Westerly wind. That really is going to make things feel quite

:25:47.:25:49.

better as we go to the end of the beat. Some snow showers are

:25:50.:25:53.

developing across the North of England. Not too much of a problem

:25:54.:25:57.

here. It will start mild on Wednesday, the temperatures reached

:25:58.:26:02.

double figures after the cold front comes through, after that

:26:03.:26:04.

North-Westerly wind drops. We will hear words like better getting used

:26:05.:26:07.

towards the end of the week. There should be some sunny spells but in

:26:08.:26:13.

many showers that crop up through Thursday, Friday and Saturday, do

:26:14.:26:16.

not be surprised if there is some wintriness and this one will make it

:26:17.:26:20.

feel really, really cold. We will keep an eye on the end of the week.

:26:21.:26:25.

Chilly weather to come. Thank you for the warning, windy.

:26:26.:26:28.

Just recapping the national headlines...

:26:29.:26:30.

Martin McGuinness has announced his resignation

:26:31.:26:31.

as Deputy First Minister of Northern Ireland in protest

:26:32.:26:33.

at the Democratic Unionist Party's handling of a botched

:26:34.:26:35.

The Prime Minister's outlined plans to address what she calls

:26:36.:26:39.

the "hidden injustice" of mental illness.

:26:40.:26:41.

She wants to change attitudes towards the condition

:26:42.:26:43.

and improve support in schools and the workplace.

:26:44.:26:48.

The Hollywood musical LA LA Land has broken the record for the most

:26:49.:26:51.

Golden Globe Awards, winning seven prizes.

:26:52.:26:52.

British actors also enjoyed a golden night in the TV categories,

:26:53.:26:55.

with prizes for The Night Manager and The Crown.

:26:56.:27:04.

I'll be back later during the Ten O'clock News, but for now,

:27:05.:27:08.

from everyone on the team, have a lovely evening.

:27:09.:27:11.
