In tonight's programme: so it's goodbye from me.

:00:00.:00:08.

What's the key to getting people on board?

:00:09.:00:10.

How bus passenger numbers have risen in the Thames Valley,

:00:11.:00:12.

Also, nothing left to cut in their schools -

:00:13.:00:15.

the teachers warning some lessons may have to go

When Rodney Nat. E, D Shakur with the love in time for Valentine's

Day. -- the shark looking for love. The number of people

:00:31.:00:40.

using bus services in Oxford, Reading and Milton Keynes has grown

:00:41.:00:43.

in the last six years - despite an overall

:00:44.:00:46.

decline nationally. That's according to a new report

:00:47.:00:47.

by public transpor It found, in Oxford,

:00:48.:00:49.

bus use increased by 12%. In Reading, the number

:00:50.:00:52.

was even higher at 17%. The increase is partly down

:00:53.:00:56.

of Oxford's bus network. One in five of us and now uses

:01:00.:01:08.

the bus to get to work in I get the bus, because

:01:09.:01:11.

it's a damn good bus And what do you like

:01:12.:01:17.

about getting the bus? If I could drive and park

:01:18.:01:20.

into Oxford, I would be much happier with that,

:01:21.:01:24.

but I won't pay parking Somebody drives you there rather

:01:25.:01:26.

than you having to walk and its dry if it's

:01:27.:01:29.

raining and that's it. And if it's busy now,

:01:30.:01:32.

it's set to get even busier. Oxford is one of the

:01:33.:01:34.

fastest-growing cities You've got two very good operators

:01:35.:01:36.

that compete against each other. We serve to raise

:01:37.:01:41.

each other standards, because we are always watching

:01:42.:01:42.

with the other one is doing. Making sure we are keeping

:01:43.:01:45.

the investment going. And also, we have had the right

:01:46.:01:47.

policy in place from local Government to make sure that bus

:01:48.:01:50.

travel is prioritised. Oxford is not the only place

:01:51.:02:01.

that is investing in Reading for instance has

:02:02.:02:04.

the third highest level of bus passengers per

:02:05.:02:10.

head outside of London. Even Milton Keynes,

:02:11.:02:12.

a town traditionally designed for the car

:02:13.:02:14.

is transforming it. Last year it received Government

:02:15.:02:16.

funding to bring in more electric In Oxford, there are plans for extra

:02:17.:02:19.

park and ride sites, bus priority on the roads, and even

:02:20.:02:23.

a zero emission central zone. But rural areas outside

:02:24.:02:25.

the city centre Last year, transport bosses ended

:02:26.:02:29.

all bus subsidies in And what about people

:02:30.:02:32.

who can't catch the bus? Well, I do accept

:02:33.:02:41.

that at inconvenient hours, like early morning and late

:02:42.:02:43.

evening, the bus service is less than it is during

:02:44.:02:46.

the middle of the day, but we do try to encourage

:02:47.:02:48.

the bus operators to actually put

:02:49.:02:50.

on services at those times. The challenge for

:02:51.:02:54.

the council, it seems, is balancing the pressures to be

:02:55.:02:56.

greener with the service that is both reliable and

:02:57.:02:59.

practical for everyone. Next tonight, headteachers

:03:00.:03:11.

in Oxfordshire say they're running They're now warning the number

:03:12.:03:13.

of lessons could be reduced Nearly half of the county's schools

:03:14.:03:17.

are due to lose money under a planned shake up

:03:18.:03:21.

of education funding. All 35 secondary schools

:03:22.:03:22.

in Oxfordshire have now Our political reporter

:03:23.:03:24.

Bethan Phillips has the story. With its new funding formula,

:03:25.:03:35.

the Government promised to tackle And as a county that's been

:03:36.:03:37.

poorly funded in the past, hopes were raised that Oxfordshire

:03:38.:03:41.

would be a big winner. But critics have described

:03:42.:03:43.

the reality as horrendous, with nearly half of schools

:03:44.:03:45.

in the county actually facing a budget reduction

:03:46.:03:47.

if the change goes ahead. Headteachers say they're simply

:03:48.:03:49.

running out of things to cut. We are absolutely at the bottom now

:03:50.:04:03.

and there is nowhere else to cut without seriously damaging

:04:04.:04:09.

provisions. Reasonable sized classes, the 25 hour week curriculum

:04:10.:04:13.

offer, those are now the sorts of things that are under threat because

:04:14.:04:16.

Even schools set to gain under the new system say overall

:04:17.:04:20.

Analysis from the National Audit Office says rising pupil numbers

:04:21.:04:23.

will mean schools generally see their budgets shrink by eight%

:04:24.:04:26.

Headteachers in Oxfordshire claim the government's new formula

:04:27.:04:35.

will particularly hit the core funding they get for each child.

:04:36.:04:38.

They say they're going to lose more than ?400 for every 11

:04:39.:04:41.

A letter's been sent to MPs, warning them about the problem -

:04:42.:04:44.

some have already promised to take the issue further.

:04:45.:04:50.

Well, it is important to bear in mind that an MP I can bring pressure

:04:51.:04:56.

on Government to make sure that the funding is fair and it is precisely

and feeling privileged, but rather embarrassed, because I'm

:06:07.:06:08.

just an ordinary person. I consider myself rather

average and so I was I think it's really

:06:11.:06:12.

important that we play our part in training

health care workers. A lot of the adult nurses

and he told me what being Not glamorous, it's gory,

satisfactory job to do. Your book is called

trying to save are very I've had very many very high risk

patients in my career and of course, it's always a privilege to operate

to get involved with that patient emotionally

before you do save their lives, because some

:07:54.:07:56.

feel to do that? Well, when Peter Houghton

:07:57.:07:58.

walked into my office, I He was within weeks of dying and had

been turned down for transplantation The first time he was too well

or four more weeks of And then died of something

:08:32.:08:33.

completely different. Out of all the 11,000 operations

:08:34.:08:38.

you've done, does one standout for you because it was

:08:39.:08:40.

either very, very difficult or because you made an emotional

:08:41.:08:43.

connection with that patient? I used to love

:08:44.:08:45.

operating on babies and children and there was one case that

:08:46.:08:47.

came so close tonight getting through that you could

:08:48.:08:50.

hardly believe it. I was in a hotel in Sydney having

:08:51.:08:52.

just gone to bed after literally to a baby

:08:53.:09:09.

who was dying from heart failure

:09:10.:09:10.

at the age of five months. And that they be had been having

:09:11.:09:13.

heart attacks at that age, because her main coronary

:09:14.:09:15.

artery came off the artery to I designed a new operation

:09:16.:09:18.

for the problem, because existing operations

:09:19.:09:27.

weren't very satisfactory. Did that operation

:09:28.:09:29.

with the film cameras running and then couldn't

:09:30.:09:30.

get her off the bypass machine. And after two hours

:09:31.:09:33.

of struggling, and a very depressed team in the operating

:09:34.:09:35.

theatre, I went out to tell the parents that I thought

:09:36.:09:38.

the baby had gone, had died. And there was such a miserable

:09:39.:09:46.

response from the mother - you can imagine telling a mother

:09:47.:09:56.

she's going to lose a baby - that I turned my heels and went back

:09:57.:09:59.

into the operating theatre and did something absolutely ridiculous,

:10:00.:10:03.

estate will benefit from more It's well known that dairy farmers

:10:28.:10:30.

across our region have been struggling for years to make

:10:31.:10:37.

a living from milk - with supermarkets continuing

:10:38.:10:39.

to sell at lower prices. But one young couple

:10:40.:10:41.

in Buckinghamshire are now selling raw milk straight from their cows,

:10:42.:10:43.

as way of bucking the trend. 6 months ago dairy farmers Jim

:10:44.:10:46.

and Harriet were watching an episode They wasted no time in starting

:10:47.:10:54.

their own venture right here from their shack,

Raw Milk tastes richer and creamier than the stuff you get in the shops,

:11:28.:11:32.

but the crucial difference is it's unpasteurised -

:11:33.:11:34.

meaning it hasn't been heated and likely homogenised to kill

:11:35.:11:36.

harmful bacteria, such as E coli.

:11:37.:11:42.

Current laugher England says that raw milk must be from animals that

are healthy, a character that is to bear to lose this free and sold

:11:59.:12:03.

think a lot of people got into it and got hooked at it as such. We are

getting good reviews from it. -- it is straight from the Cal.

at 5:30am and hygiene is of the utmost importance.

:12:19.:12:21.

I did the morning shift and finish about 9am. We do the afternoon at

:12:22.:12:29.

We are usually finished about 6:30pm in the afternoon.

And within months of business they've started to build up

:13:19.:13:23.

After yesterday's political row over leaked texts Government ministers

:13:24.:13:31.

have been insisting that Surrey County Council has not been

:13:32.:13:33.

given a special deal to keep council tax low.

:13:34.:13:36.

However, under questioning by Labour, The Leader of the House

:13:37.:13:39.

of Commons did admit Surrey has asked to join a pilot scheme

:13:40.:13:43.

to retain business rates a year earlier than other councils.

:13:44.:13:47.

If there is no special deal for Surrey, why did

:13:48.:13:50.

the Prime Minister simply not confirm this?

:13:51.:13:53.

I, and other honourable members, want a memorandum of understanding

:13:54.:13:55.

to secure our libraries and social care.

:13:56.:13:59.

Surrey County Council has asked if it can participate in one

:14:00.:14:06.

of the pilot project is for the proposed 100%

:14:07.:14:10.

As any other local council will be free to apply, there is no

:14:11.:14:17.

I'm sure we'll be hearing more of that in future. Now, all the sport.

:14:18.:14:36.

We are going to hear from the chairman of Bournemouth. Is he

:14:37.:14:39.

despondent at the moment given the poor recent run. Far from it. It has

:14:40.:14:47.

been a tricky spell. They have had injuries, suspensions, didn't manage

:14:48.:14:53.

to make signings but they are just looking over their shoulder.

:14:54.:14:55.

It's probably the most trying spell of the fledgling Premier League

:14:56.:14:58.

life of AFC Bournemouth, and their manager Eddie Howe.

:14:59.:15:00.

Slipping down the table, the Cherries are battling

:15:01.:15:02.

A lack of new signings in January didn't exactly rouse the mood.

:15:03.:15:06.

South Today has spoken exclusively to Bournemouth chairman Jeff Mostyn,

:15:07.:15:09.

as the club try to get the ball rolling back in

:15:10.:15:11.

In a debut season in, arguably, the world's toughest league,

:15:12.:15:21.

any team would be given time to settle in.

:15:22.:15:23.

Second time around, with tens of millions

:15:24.:15:34.

of pounds spent, the expectations at Bournemouth

:15:35.:15:36.

It's been a very difficult and stressful January

:15:37.:15:41.

You know, the performances have been disappointing, to say the least.

:15:42.:15:45.

There's always a concern when you're not winning games.

:15:46.:15:49.

It was not for the lack of trying, right up until

:15:50.:15:52.

11 o'clock, on transfer deadline day, occasionally you have to spend

:15:53.:15:57.

a little bit more than you budgeted for and we were always willing to do

:15:58.:16:01.

that with the players that we wanted to bring in.

:16:02.:16:03.

Some of the values were just crazy, as they always are

:16:04.:16:10.

It's the worst market to deal in and, as Eddie has said,

:16:11.:16:16.

publicly, it's in the public domain, it was probably the worst window

:16:17.:16:19.

There's no sense that if you haven't got

:16:20.:16:29.

recruitment department have failed in their duty.

:16:30.:16:32.

We are more concerned than we were before Christmas.

:16:33.:16:44.

Our goal has always been to retain our position

:16:45.:16:46.

Would we be having this conversation now if we

:16:47.:16:51.

haven't reached the dizzy heights of the top half of the table,

:16:52.:16:55.

or would people have been satisfied that we

:16:56.:16:57.

We still haven't identified an ideal sight but we have

:16:58.:17:11.

identified three sites that have potential.

:17:12.:17:13.

So, it's a very slow moving project but we're in talks

:17:14.:17:16.

practically with the Council on a daily basis.

:17:17.:17:28.

Eddie is our manager and he will continue to be our manager

:17:29.:17:33.

We have an incredible relationship and you

:17:34.:17:38.

will never get a person who is more level-headed.

:17:39.:17:40.

He's more determined than ever ensure that this football

:17:41.:17:44.

club retains its position at the very top level of football.

:17:45.:17:56.

More of that interview on our Facebook page and on the BBC sport

:17:57.:18:00.

website. Now for the last of our

:18:01.:18:04.

features from Bermuda. Tony Husband has been three and half

:18:05.:18:06.

thousand miles across the globe to visit the island that will stage

:18:07.:18:09.

the America's Cup this summer. Sir Ben Ainslie's Land Rover BAR

:18:10.:18:12.

will hope to become the first British team to win the trophy,

:18:13.:18:15.

that was first contested Tonight Tony finds out how

:18:16.:18:17.

the island is preparing and what conditions the sailors

:18:18.:18:22.

will face. Bermuda is Britain's oldest colony

:18:23.:18:37.

so it is fitting that Ben Ainslie is hoping to bring the Americas cup

:18:38.:18:50.

home from these waters. Bermuda is 21.6 square miles. The population is

:18:51.:18:57.

60 4000. Bermuda shorts borrowed from the British military. Though

:18:58.:19:07.

neither was settled in 1609. It is the proverbial picture postcard

:19:08.:19:13.

island. Britain's largest naval dockyard outside the UK was once

:19:14.:19:18.

here. The America's Cup is big news for traders. It's is an absolute

:19:19.:19:25.

need for Bermuda, a tremendous boost to our economic benefit and it's a

:19:26.:19:31.

lot of fun. Memorabilia fills the rails across the stores in the

:19:32.:19:35.

island. What today they think about the America's Cup? Just the

:19:36.:19:40.

publicity alone is ideal for the island. On the one hand, I'm rooting

:19:41.:19:47.

for Oracle because they've been here a while and are established in the

:19:48.:19:51.

community. If they were to win the cup, they would stay which would be

:19:52.:19:55.

good for the island. Generally, people are for BA are and Oracle on

:19:56.:20:05.

the island. It is there that the boats competing for the America's

:20:06.:20:08.

Cup will race off this summer. It forms a perfect the theatre. It's a

:20:09.:20:19.

tricky place to sail. It's perfect for the flat water where we will be

:20:20.:20:24.

racing but it is very landlocked so the wind is shifting. Thankfully,

:20:25.:20:29.

I've got a bit of experience having sailed here a lot over the years but

:20:30.:20:35.

we've got Giles Scott, our tactician on the boat who decides where we

:20:36.:20:40.

will go on the course and you couldn't ask for anyone more

:20:41.:20:45.

talented than Giles, having come out of Rio with a gold medal. Between

:20:46.:20:53.

One of the figureheads of British Sailing has announced

:22:08.:22:11.

that he's to retire from his role later this year.

:22:12.:22:14.

John Derbyshire OBE is to stand down as the Royal Yachting

:22:15.:22:17.

Derbyshire's departure will follow that of Olympic

:22:18.:22:23.

manager Stephen Park, who is also leaving this spring

:22:24.:22:25.

A couple of things to deal with. Tony didn't get his legs out. Note

:22:26.:22:40.

Bermuda shorts. And he didn't bring as anything back. Not even a bag of

:22:41.:22:50.

sweets. I gave him a cold to go with so I didn't anything to come back.

:22:51.:22:54.

We're just a few days away from Valentine's day -

:22:55.:22:56.

and there's one couple who'll be spending February the 14th together,

:22:57.:22:59.

that's despite the fact they haven't met yet!

:23:00.:23:02.

We're talking about a pair of sharks.

:23:03.:23:09.

Rodney the zebra shark is being transported

:23:10.:23:12.

from his current home at the Blue Reef Aquarium

:23:13.:23:14.

in Southsea to a larger tank in Cheshire but luckily Rodney

:23:15.:23:17.

won't be lonely when he gets there The plan is to

:23:18.:23:20.

For a shark it's not easy making friends, there's always the

:23:21.:23:35.

temptation to eat them. Four Rodney it's even harder. He has no mate but

:23:36.:23:39.

now love is in the air, or rather the water. This lovely lady is dotty

:23:40.:23:52.

and hopefully for Rodney by nature as well as name. We are giving him

:23:53.:24:00.

to an aquarium and we raised her as a little baby so it was always going

:24:01.:24:06.

to be the case that they would meet. We have our fingers crossed that it

is going to be successful. This is Rodney as a baby, strikingly

:24:48.:24:54.

more laid-back. Too much pressure. Onto the weather. Wrap up warm is

:24:55.:25:01.

the answer. You will need all the layers. This wind from the east is

:25:02.:25:07.

going to make it feel bitterly cold. Let's look at your lovely weather

the Facebook page. Tonight, we expect wintry flurries or even a

:25:32.:25:36.

dusting of snow. More likely for Eastern counties. Elsewhere, mainly

:25:37.:25:43.

dry, Frost can't be ruled out. In towns and cities temperatures will

:25:44.:25:49.

fall to freezing. So, a cold and frosty start tomorrow. Wintry

:25:50.:25:54.

showers will continue. With a strengthening east to north-easterly

:25:55.:25:58.

wind, further showers will roll in from the North Sea. Temperatures

:25:59.:26:02.

will reach a high of four Celsius but with wind chill it will feel a

:26:03.:26:08.

lot colder. Wind coming in from the north-east staying with us through

:26:09.:26:12.

tomorrow night and there will be further wintry showers. More

:26:13.:26:17.

frequent during the early hours of Saturday morning. More likely

:26:18.:26:23.

further east. Temperatures down to freezing and possibly -2 in the

:26:24.:26:28.

countryside. Saturday is another cold day with that wind chill. Still

:26:29.:26:35.

the risk of wintry showers brought in on this north-easterly wind.

:26:36.:26:40.

Showers will drift westward with the strengthening wind. Limiting the

:26:41.:26:46.

brightness for the next few days. Possibly one or two spells tomorrow

:26:47.:26:52.

afternoon. For the next few days, some wintry showers at times and it

:26:53.:26:57.

will feel colder. It will be stronger than recent days,

temperatures starting to climb with the start of next week. Temperatures

:27:22.:27:33.

It's still very cold. Spare a thought for the headteacher sleeping

OK, everyone, have you got your bamboo sticks?

If you just paint what you want to paint,

I've turned around, my painting washes away.
