Hello and welcome to The One Show with Alex Jones. And Matt Baker.

:00:18.:00:21.

Now, prepare to be roused, because joining us tonight is a man who's

:00:21.:00:26.

looking to inspire the nation with his new album Anthems. Having

:00:26.:00:28.

performed everywhere from working men's clubs to palaces, he's the

:00:28.:00:38.
:00:38.:00:54.

UK's best-selling classical artist. Please welcome Russell Watson!

:00:54.:00:58.

not want to talk about Sunday, I am devastated. Actually I did not get

:00:58.:01:03.

to see the game. This is true, I was walking down the hallway of

:01:03.:01:08.

Television Centre, and I was told, United have done it, City have lost.

:01:08.:01:14.

And just as I got into my dressing room, they had scored two goals.

:01:14.:01:18.

was the most unbelievable few minutes. It was extraordinary at

:01:18.:01:28.
:01:28.:01:29.

the end. Do you want to talk about me now?! 1999, that was a much

:01:29.:01:35.

better year for us. We won the treble, and I went to sing at the

:01:35.:01:39.

end of the season, I was invited to go and sing in Barcelona. It was

:01:39.:01:46.

absolutely amazing. We beat Bayern Munich 2-1. Is it hard singing in a

:01:46.:01:52.

football stadium? No, it is fantastic. There is usually that

:01:52.:01:58.

much noise going on in the stadium, you cannot hear people bowing.

:01:58.:02:03.

will be hearing about Russell's new album very shortly, and we will be

:02:03.:02:08.

talking about an experiment to find out exactly how rising -- how

:02:08.:02:15.

rousing the album is. Back in April, we met a couple whose radio show

:02:15.:02:19.

had just been nominated for a prestigious award, the biggest

:02:20.:02:25.

award the radio industry can devout. But our relationship with Beryl And

:02:25.:02:29.

Betty did not end, because they invited our cameras along to join

:02:29.:02:39.
:02:39.:02:44.

them for their big night out. David. Hello, David. Plucked from

:02:44.:02:47.

obscurity by David Reeves, they have become a smash hit with

:02:47.:02:56.

listeners all across the north-east of England. Do you like a bit of

:02:56.:03:02.

Michael Buble? At 86 and 90, they are the oldest of nominees for the

:03:02.:03:08.

award in its 30 year history. How does it feel to be on the red

:03:08.:03:14.

carpet? Exciting, I think I am dreaming. Do you think it will be

:03:14.:03:20.

hard to win? Do you think we can win it? Well, we could do it.

:03:20.:03:26.

course we could. With tension mounting, the girls got their first

:03:26.:03:31.

chance to meet their celebrity admirers. There's a lot of single

:03:31.:03:39.

men on the prowl, I just want you to know. Having read you two, I am

:03:39.:03:44.

thinking, I have got another 40 years. We will be out partying

:03:45.:03:54.

tonight, will you hit the dancefloor? You must be joking!

:03:54.:03:59.

there was one familiar face to put them at ease. Huge guests of honour

:03:59.:04:05.

this evening, two ladies, Beryl And Betty - shall we go and say hello

:04:05.:04:14.

to them? Come on! Hello, girls. How are you? How are you doing?

:04:14.:04:20.

Chris, and thank you very much. What do you think your chances are

:04:20.:04:24.

of winning this evening? Oh I would not like to say, we can keep our

:04:24.:04:30.

fingers crossed. We can now officially begin, because Beryl And

:04:30.:04:35.

Betty are here, ladies and gentlemen. Then, the announcements

:04:35.:04:42.

began. Ladies and gentlemen, this features you know who, for the Best

:04:42.:04:52.
:04:52.:05:00.

Entertrainment Programme category. And the winners, Beryl And Betty!

:05:00.:05:04.

Thank you to everybody, and good luck to you all tonight. Yes, thank

:05:04.:05:09.

you very much for this award. We are both absolutely overwhelmed.

:05:10.:05:13.

May I just say, thank you very much to David, who nominated as for this

:05:13.:05:23.
:05:23.:05:26.

award. Thank you all very much. never thought six years ago when we

:05:26.:05:29.

started with David on the programme that we would be going up those

:05:29.:05:37.

steps to get this. Absolutely on top of the world. We are.

:05:37.:05:46.

Brilliant. How about that? As Beryl And Betty would say, that must be

:05:46.:05:55.

better than chicken dinner. Do you remember your first musical ward,

:05:55.:06:03.

Russell? I do, it was Picadilly Radio search for a start in 1990. I

:06:03.:06:12.

won a gold disc. Really? Not a real one. I sell Neil diamond's Love on

:06:12.:06:22.

the Rocks. You like Neil diamond. do, that's another story. Anyway,

:06:22.:06:27.

you're here to talk about your new album, Anthems - Music To Inspire A

:06:27.:06:35.

Nation. What inspired you? I did not write it, I know I did not

:06:35.:06:38.

write Land of hope and Glory and God Save The Queen! I know I look

:06:38.:06:42.

old, but not that old. I have been singing this repertoire up and down

:06:42.:06:46.

the country for the past seven or eight years. I have not got round

:06:47.:06:52.

to recording it until now. Probably more predominantly so because the

:06:53.:06:55.

eyes of the world around the United Kingdom this year, the fact that we

:06:55.:06:59.

have got the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, and of course we are the

:06:59.:07:03.

host nation for the Olympics. I just want to instil a bit of pride

:07:03.:07:09.

in us before it all gets started. It is brilliant, there is nothing

:07:09.:07:13.

like performing that kind of repertoire, with an orchestra.

:07:13.:07:23.
:07:23.:07:42.

Let's have a look at you in full # He knows he can turn the key once

:07:42.:07:52.
:07:52.:08:07.

more... I did not realise that that piece

:08:07.:08:14.

of music has words. Yes, it does. I do not take the credit for that. It

:08:14.:08:18.

is relatively new, but I just heard the song and it is so incredibly

:08:18.:08:23.

inspiring. I made a real connection with the music, that was one of the

:08:23.:08:27.

songs which got me going. It is a perfect soundtrack for the Olympics

:08:27.:08:33.

and for the Jubilee. Are you hoping it will be used during some of the

:08:33.:08:42.

coverage? I was fortunate enough to do the Opening Ceremony of the

:08:42.:08:45.

Commonwealth Games at the City of Manchester Stadium, and there was a

:08:45.:08:48.

worldwide audience of 1 billion people, that was absolutely amazing.

:08:48.:08:54.

So, of course, any involvement with the Olympics would be fantastic.

:08:54.:08:59.

am doing the lunchtime bits, so I will see you. Anyway, we decided to

:08:59.:09:05.

put the songs to the test to find out which one is the most inspiring.

:09:06.:09:10.

We wanted to see how much people's him -- performance would improve

:09:10.:09:14.

when they were listening to these songs. Earlier today, these guys

:09:14.:09:20.

ran flat out for 60 seconds without musical stimulation. But now,

:09:20.:09:26.

engages in gentlemen, it is time for the main event - which stirring

:09:26.:09:28.

anthem will inspire the best performance from our fitness

:09:28.:09:35.

fanatics? Straight out of the box, and off to a flyer, Land of hope

:09:35.:09:44.

and Glory. Coming through on the second track, Swing Low. On the

:09:44.:09:54.
:09:54.:09:54.

third track, We are the Champions. Jerusalem comes next. Next, Danny

:09:54.:10:03.

Boy, which first burst onto the scene back in 1939. And finally,

:10:03.:10:10.

Flower Of Scotland never fails to rouse the spirits. With only a few

:10:10.:10:14.

seconds left to run, it is tough to call. It is going to be a photo

:10:14.:10:20.

finish. They are going for the line! Now, I have the results. Who

:10:21.:10:26.

do you think has won? I don't know, but I love the pictures on the

:10:26.:10:31.

front, particularly as I am like that. Most of the pictures ever

:10:31.:10:36.

taken of me, I am like that! In order to get recognised walking

:10:36.:10:41.

down the street, I have to do this. You might be feeling the same when

:10:41.:10:47.

you find out the results. Third, Jerusalem. Then, tied for the

:10:48.:10:56.

silver medal, Swing Low and Danny Boy, but the winner, on 36%, it was

:10:56.:11:06.
:11:06.:11:08.

Flower of Scotland. There you go! # Flower of Scotland!

:11:08.:11:18.
:11:18.:11:19.

# When will we see your like again? # We were hoping you would give us

:11:19.:11:28.

a bit of that. Now, you have had an extraordinary recovery from two

:11:28.:11:34.

brain tumours. Truly remarkable. consider myself to be very, very

:11:34.:11:38.

lucky. It is this incredible story about how it has changed your voice,

:11:39.:11:43.

is that right? It has changed everything, my outlook on life, on

:11:43.:11:48.

the people around me, everything. A lot of it is not very pleasant to

:11:48.:11:51.

talk about at this time of the evening, but the tumour had got so

:11:51.:11:55.

big that it had grown into my nasal package so it was causing a

:11:55.:12:01.

blockage. When they removed it from that particular area, it opened up

:12:02.:12:06.

a whole new vocal world for me. But I feel so good at the moment, I am

:12:06.:12:10.

loving life, I am happy. It is a great feeling, it is the key to

:12:10.:12:20.
:12:20.:12:26.

life, happiness. You look very well. That album is out on 28th May. Now,

:12:27.:12:35.

they are only 15cm in length, and they give architects nightmares.

:12:35.:12:40.

Yes, Mike Dilger entered the world of the great-crested newt. Numbers

:12:40.:12:42.

of the great-crested newt have dropped dramatically in recent

:12:42.:12:47.

years. Consequently, they are among the most protected animals in the

:12:47.:12:51.

country. Not even builders and their bulldozers are allowed to

:12:51.:12:56.

move them without a licence. But here at the University of Kent,

:12:56.:13:00.

they are not considered a nuisance, in fact, they are positively

:13:00.:13:04.

encouraged. So I have come along with my special licence to find out

:13:04.:13:08.

exactly what is going on. Great- crested newts have naturally

:13:08.:13:12.

colonised the artificial ponds which the professor has created

:13:12.:13:20.

here. This species has been declining right across Europe...

:13:20.:13:23.

monitoring the whereabouts of every individual, and working out how

:13:23.:13:29.

they move, a picture has been built up of what makes their perfect home.

:13:29.:13:36.

I am here to help Richard and his students lay traps. Dusk is the

:13:36.:13:40.

perfect time to set the traps. Great-crested newts are active at

:13:40.:13:46.

night during the breeding season, and they will often get trapped in

:13:46.:13:53.

a pot until the morning. How are that? Being the impatient

:13:53.:13:57.

naturalist that I am, I cannot wait until tomorrow morning. It is now

:13:57.:14:01.

10 o'clock, and Richard has brought me to a special spot to try and get

:14:01.:14:06.

a glimpse. They do not spend much of their lives actually in water.

:14:06.:14:11.

In fact, they spend most of their lives on land. When you're doing

:14:11.:14:15.

conservation, it is crucial to think not just about the pond, but

:14:15.:14:25.
:14:25.:14:32.

There is one right there. He has a distinctive very big crest. And if

:14:32.:14:39.

the mouth. Yes, his crest is to impress the female. He can probably

:14:39.:14:45.

see her and smell her. It is lovely. He is very interested in the female

:14:45.:14:53.

and he has started to weave his They do this amazing display, it is

:14:53.:15:00.

thought to waft the newt equivalent of Chanel perfume to get her going!

:15:00.:15:05.

It is delightful news there are so many newts tonight and that bodes

:15:05.:15:09.

well. Fingers crossed we will catch the bottle tops tomorrow and then

:15:09.:15:19.

we will see them up close and personal. Good morning, Richard.

:15:19.:15:26.

Everyone is out bright and early. We are starting to find a few newts.

:15:26.:15:31.

This is a smooth newt, very abundant in the area. Let's fish

:15:31.:15:39.

him out. What a beautiful, beautiful animal! It is a fully-

:15:39.:15:44.

grown male. The Crest tends to flock down when they are out of the

:15:44.:15:49.

water, and this lovely white flash on the tail. If we turn him over,

:15:49.:15:55.

we can see the very striking black and orange belly, which through

:15:55.:16:04.

World Wildlife basically says, I do not taste very nice. This is like a

:16:04.:16:08.

newt fingerprint which enables Bichard to identify specific

:16:08.:16:14.

individuals in an unusual identity parade. I think this one might be

:16:14.:16:21.

Adam. That dot is very distinctive. Once caught it is a good

:16:21.:16:25.

opportunity to do a general health check and take a look at their life

:16:25.:16:28.

history. The scissor ridiculous!

:16:28.:16:34.

Some individuals live for up to 15 years, while others take gap years

:16:34.:16:38.

in their breeding season and it has also been found that they

:16:38.:16:43.

continually move between bonds. This is valuable data which

:16:43.:16:48.

provides the bigger picture for newt Conservation everywhere. Today,

:16:48.:16:54.

they have recorded a brand new newt, and they have them reap kindly name

:16:54.:16:59.

to after me. Say hello to Michael - - they have very kindly named him

:16:59.:17:05.

after me. Hopefully thanks to this project, the future of that newts

:17:05.:17:10.

will be a lot brighter. It is a marvellous thing to have a newt

:17:10.:17:15.

named after you. It is the highlight of my career! Michael

:17:15.:17:21.

newt. You know that they are barely is as unique as a human fingerprint.

:17:21.:17:28.

Look, we found that there was a number one. For the One Show. We do

:17:28.:17:33.

not want Russell been left out of the newt chat. The Wildlife Trust

:17:33.:17:39.

has very kindly arranged... thought that was real for a minute!

:17:39.:17:45.

I have an association with newts. Usually after a bottle of champagne.

:17:45.:17:50.

Congratulations, you have adopted a great crested Newt. One of the

:17:50.:17:56.

highest accolades you will probably ever received! It is the highest!

:17:56.:18:04.

Very emotional! Wire are the great crested newts been predicted?

:18:04.:18:11.

are being polluted. They spent a lot of time out of bonds as well.

:18:11.:18:17.

Don't forget, this is protected on the 1981 Wildlife and Countryside

:18:17.:18:20.

Act and ditties afforded the maximum protection under the eyes

:18:20.:18:28.

of the law -- and it is afforded. In October, 2010, 1500 homes were

:18:28.:18:32.

in danger of being flooded but the Environment Agency had to stop

:18:32.:18:38.

their emergency flood repaired to make sure the newts were protected

:18:38.:18:43.

in the breeding season. We have got a map showing where the great

:18:43.:18:53.
:18:53.:18:54.

crested Newts are. They are very The black bits are where they are.

:18:54.:18:59.

They are beautiful, beautiful animals. Where were we? They are

:18:59.:19:06.

around. Yes! Are they more in the South? They are not the only newts

:19:06.:19:13.

protected. We have three species in the UK. You cannot touch the great

:19:13.:19:21.

crested Newt. The other two are distributed all over the UK. The

:19:21.:19:25.

ones on the right have webbed feet and they are found in the West and

:19:25.:19:28.

the north of the country and you can go and handle those if you are

:19:28.:19:33.

very careful, catch them and showed children and very carefully put

:19:33.:19:38.

them back in the water with wet hands. Then? Road.

:19:38.:19:43.

Getting a decent photo of your child can be a challenge. Jamie

:19:43.:19:50.

Crawford met a photographer with a Today's children are the most

:19:50.:19:55.

photographed ever but quantity does not always mean quality. Our

:19:55.:20:00.

memories are too precious to be captured as blurred pictures. I am

:20:00.:20:04.

out of step with kids because I am more used to photograph and animals

:20:04.:20:08.

and landscape so I have come to Devon to pick the brains of a

:20:09.:20:12.

professional. Helen has been photographing children for over ten

:20:12.:20:17.

years and I'm really love her work. What are your basic rules for

:20:17.:20:22.

photographing kids out and about? To be ready for them and move with

:20:22.:20:28.

them. When that moment comes, you need to grab it. If you have missed

:20:28.:20:36.

it, you miss it. Yes! It is best to photograph kids doing what they

:20:36.:20:41.

enjoy. Woody wants to be Superman, which is great, but all of this

:20:41.:20:47.

crouching is hurting my knees. But download is the right place to be.

:20:47.:20:51.

It is not so interesting if you asked a duck. You feel right you

:20:51.:20:57.

are with them in the shocked -- if you are stood up. You meet a fast

:20:57.:21:02.

shutter speed when you have children running around. Can you

:21:02.:21:09.

give me your best Superman face? Exactly! Next for some more

:21:09.:21:13.

composed portraits of older children. There is less running

:21:13.:21:18.

about but with all of this parkland, I am surprised to find Helen

:21:18.:21:23.

shooting against a barn door. makes a really funky, different

:21:23.:21:27.

background. Older children want something they can show their

:21:27.:21:34.

friends, something that represents them. They look good, professional.

:21:34.:21:39.

How do you decide where to put them? Some think the photographers

:21:39.:21:46.

have to do is use the roads, divide the frame in two-thirds and just

:21:46.:21:50.

off-centre. That can make a huge difference, it makes what you are

:21:50.:21:54.

looking at that bit more interesting. I often look for

:21:54.:21:58.

naturally occurring frames. The tree is either side of her so it

:21:58.:22:04.

leads your eye into her faith. is a great idea. I am really

:22:04.:22:08.

pleased with these shots. Most amateurs will stick with a zoom

:22:08.:22:13.

that the camera comes with but there is a cheap way to improve

:22:13.:22:19.

your portraits. Invest in a 50 mm lens. It is really worth doing, I

:22:19.:22:26.

cannot recommend it enough. Three months ago, Helen to these stunning

:22:26.:22:33.

shots of two newborn twins. -- took these. She is shooting a new set

:22:33.:22:40.

today so I can see where it is done. We are going to their home, where

:22:40.:22:43.

the photographic environment can be controlled. You can use everyday

:22:43.:22:53.
:22:53.:22:55.

items, like a sheet, to replicate We want to make sure there is no

:22:55.:23:01.

clutter in the background of the shot. You can easily pick up a

:23:01.:23:06.

blanket and a sheet. You want to focus on the baby, nothing to

:23:06.:23:11.

distract the eye. With babies and with children, a flash can be very

:23:11.:23:15.

intrusive and it can make the photos look unflattering. Just pop

:23:15.:23:19.

the babies in front of the window and you will get this lovely soft

:23:19.:23:23.

light in front of their faces. Particularly with babies, it is

:23:23.:23:28.

nice to concentrate on some of the details, like their tiny feet and

:23:28.:23:32.

their tiny hands, and to capture those moments because they grow too

:23:32.:23:41.

fast. The portrait of -- portrait Moat can throw the background out

:23:41.:23:46.

of focus. So just make sure you get the focus spot on. If there is one

:23:46.:23:51.

thing I have learned today is that you should know when to stop. When

:23:51.:23:55.

the babies have had enough, but the camera down and come back again

:23:55.:23:58.

because they will be smiling again and you will get a lot more

:23:58.:24:03.

cracking shots. You have a great tip... But no time

:24:04.:24:09.

unfortunately! We will have to save it for another day. Time Out Of a

:24:09.:24:14.

heart-rending story of one woman's experience of domestic violence.

:24:14.:24:18.

Victoria Derbyshire met a lady, who we will call Sarah, battling to

:24:18.:24:27.

This woman suffered years of abuse from her husband, who was also

:24:27.:24:31.

charged with raping her, so how did he end up walking free world she

:24:31.:24:37.

ended up in jail? I should have rung the police the first time it

:24:37.:24:40.

happened. I was petrified that it would not stop and it would get

:24:41.:24:45.

worse. It took me until after the third occasion to think, this is

:24:45.:24:50.

not going to stop, so I ran into the bedroom and phoned the police.

:24:50.:24:54.

Sarah told the police that her then husband had raped her six times. He

:24:54.:24:58.

was charged and released on bail but under pressure from him and his

:24:58.:25:03.

family, she returned to the police station and told police of the says

:25:03.:25:07.

What was prison-like? -- her retraction was not true.

:25:45.:25:50.

What hit me more than anything was not having the children around. It

felt a bit like I was living in How can an alleged victim of rape,

:26:04.:26:07.

whose account the police believed, end up being convicted of

:26:08.:26:14.

perverting the course of justice? Barrister at Susan Edwards believe

:26:14.:26:19.

this case shows how many women are still failed by the justice system.

:26:19.:26:23.

Perverting the course of justice was never intended to be used

:26:23.:26:27.

against women who were genuine victims of domestic violence, on

:26:27.:26:32.

the contrary, it was intended to be used against the men who intimidate

:26:32.:26:37.

the women to prevent them from giving evidence. Only 6% of

:26:37.:26:42.

reported rapes lead to prosecution, with nearly 12% of all unsuccessful

:26:42.:26:47.

rape cases failing because the victim retracted, did not attend

:26:47.:26:51.

court or their evidence did not support the case. In the majority

of cases, women who phone the police want the violence at that

point to stop. Then when it comes to the matter of considering a

:27:01.:27:06.

prosecution, they are afraid of reprisals. For perverting the

course of justice, cerebral sentenced to eight months in prison.

standing here now. The police told us they deal with reports of sexual

:27:36.:27:41.

assault with sympathy and in accordance with national guidelines.

:27:41.:27:46.

On appeal, Sarah was released from jail after 18 days and the judge

:27:46.:27:49.

said the judiciary had a duty of compassion for a woman who had

:27:49.:27:54.

already been victimised. The CPS have now admitted they were wrong

:27:54.:28:01.

to charge Sarah and as a result, have set up new guidance which

:28:01.:28:04.

means other people in this situation would no longer be

:28:04.:28:09.

prosecuted without the approval of the Director of Public Prosecutions.

:28:09.:28:12.

The policy we now have in place makes absolutely clear that if a

woman with drawers and retracts out of fear or threats, we would not

this case, one of the things that was clear in the Court of Appeal,

:28:29.:28:32.

is that if the current guidelines had been applied, she would not

have been prosecuted. Last month, Sarah went back to court to try to

:28:38.:28:42.

clear her name. The Court of Appeal accepted she was suffering from

:28:42.:28:45.

post-traumatic stress disorder at the time she retracted the

:28:45.:28:50.

allegations but said the conviction would still stand. As for her ex-

:28:50.:28:53.

husband, all charges have been dropped against him and he has

never been convicted. It scares me every day the fact he could do it
