Hello and welcome to The One Show with Michelle Ackerley.


It's promising to be a very newsworthy week -


Tomorrow, Theresa May will give a much-anticipated


speech about Brexit, and on Friday, America


will swear in its 45th president, Donald J Trump.


So by the weekend it could be that we all need a break


from the real-life drama, - which is where tonight's


They star in Sunday night's big new thriller Apple Tree Yard -


please welcome Emily Watson and Ben Chaplin!


APPLAUSE Welcome to you both. Thank you.


Before we go further I believe belated birthday celebrations are in


order. How did it go? It was pretty fun. It was huge, it was off the


hook. I thought it was your 30th. Smarten, smarm. Did you get a


favourite gift by any chance? I got some really delightful gifts from my


children which were very sweet. I got a beautiful lampshade from my


daughter and a portrait of Yoda. LAUGHTER


She's going to hang it on the wall beside Budde which is interesting.


What a gift. Very good. Any shenanigans at the party, then, you


were there? Any shenanigans? We were pretty civilised, we were just


gently trolley to. I did go on to another pub afterwards. He went on a


pub crawl afterwards. I took it on, tried to go straight through.


We are going to talk more about this new drama shortly but before that


one story that has been in the news over the last few days concerns a


girl in the States being found 18 years after she went missing as a


newborn baby. Closer to home, The One Show has


discovered a sharp rise in complaints about how


the police here handle missing person cases -


Here's Nick Wallis. He was jovial, happy-go-lucky,


always trying to cheer you up. 19-year-old was about to start the


second year of the business to stomach studies degree and one night


he left his home in Enfield to play football with his mates and never


seen by his family again. -- business studies degree. Last time


we saw him he was upset and having a row with his girlfriend on the


phone. His mum and dad waited all weekend before calling the police to


report her missing. The impression I'm getting from the police. From


the first day. The typical teenager. Is going to come back. He has gone


out and after a couple of weeks he will resurface. The officers'


attitudes that they is one of several criticisms they have about


the investigation and led them to lodge a complaint with the


Independent police complaint commission about their handling of


the case and it's one of many missing persons cases heading their


way. The One Show has obtained figures which revealed the number of


referrals to the police watchdog over the handling of missing persons


cases has quadrupled over the last five years. Referrals have risen


from 44-190 between 2011 and last year making up 5% of all cases going


to be IPCC, although missing persons are not the only type to see an


increase and some are reported automatically. Although the police


cannot fully investigate every disappearance, his parents think the


police should have been doing more. They believe their son might have


been murdered. His girlfriend, on the other hand, told them he had


previously threatened to commit suicide from London Bridge. They


wanted both claims looked into. I said to them, please can you go and


check London Bridge CCTV. Did that get checked? No. He said anyway, if


he has done it there are thousands of cameras in London and we won't be


able to do that. Whether CCTV was looked at or not two months after


disappearing local police issued a missing persons appeal. It would be


another two months before his parents received the news they had


been dreading. On the 26th of December the police knocked at the


door and said to me we have the body and we think it might be his body.


And what they were about to discover next is one of the main reasons for


their complaint. His body had been lying in a morgue for over two


months after being spotted by a passer-by here in the police


launched the official appeal. He had only been identified after a


speculative search of the National DNA database. His parents feel they


could have been spared several weeks of anxiety. It took them so long to


tell us what happened to him. The worst thing is he is sleeping in a


morgue and they are still investigating. I feel that the


police has been racist with us. Why do you think the police were acting


in a racist manner towards you? Because every time we tried to


approach them in whatever way they kind of shot is down. That is not


evidence of racism, is it? No, no, but I feel because I come from an


ethnic minority group that's the way I've been treated. Former but report


police Detective Chief Inspector Chris Kirkham has worked on many


missing persons cases. What do the police have to be mindful of when


dealing with families who have reported someone missing?


It's very difficult to manage your dealings with the family to start


with. They are very worried and one of the police are trying to do,


knowing that the vast majority of missing people turn up in 48 hours,


is to reduce their stress and try and stop worrying unduly. His body


was lying in a morgue for a number of weeks before was identified. How


unusual is that? It is not that unusual to take quite some time to


identify unidentified bodies found. Is there a problem here that for the


police they are doing a job but for the families of the bereaved their


whole life has fallen apart? There is certainly that aspect to it. It


would be nice to spend a couple of hours doing things as you would


really want to do them but police officers really can't. The resources


to be to do these sort of things are not there especially with 20% cuts


over the last six years. The Metropolitan Police would not


comment on the case while the IPCC investigation is ongoing but in an


earlier statement they refuted any suggestion of racism and said the


time taken to identify Krishna's body was beyond their control. The


coroner returned an open verdict but his parents are convinced there is


more to their son's death. They washed their hands of whatever


happened to Krishna. I still don't believe that my son is gone deep


down and we have been treated like that.


We hope Krishna's family get the answers they are looking for.


With us is Karen Robinson from charity Missing People,


who work with both families and the police.


We saw one of the officers in the film talking about blaming


complaints on budget cuts. Would you agree with that? Anyone watching


that would agree that Pradeep and Medha want answers and they deserve


those answers. In context, 20% cuts to police budgets from central


government mean that while missing numbers are rising. We're working


with the national policing lead and every police force in the country at


the charity Missing People to make sure that when someone goes missing


and they are missing their son like that family were, they know the


charity is here 24 hours a day for support from our expert family


support workers. The number of missing people reported is


staggering. It is roughly 300,000 people reported every year. And


rising. When that happens, Karen, what should happen? You say you help


the police as well, but what actually happens? If anybody


watching this needs to report somebody missing to the police they


can expect to answer a lot of questions and those questions might


feel invasive, they will ask what happened that day, in the preceding


week, what relationships are like at home, they will want to know what


the person is wearing and those questions might feel a bit daunting.


They will want to come round and searched the property. That might


seem a bit weird because the family will often say I've already searched


the property and I know they are not here. Those things are completely


normal and our role at Missing People is to make sure families


understand what is happening. Beta referred to the police not having a


couple of hours to explain that to the family but we do and we do that,


every police force should tell every family about us. It's interesting


you talk about what people should expect. Do you feel the influence of


TV on certain dramas can skew people's expectations of what they


should expect? The whole thing with 24 hours that you should leave until


you report a person missing, those kind of things have come through TV


dramas and things like that. Do you think that influences things? It


does and in our experience that can lead people to delay making a


missing person report they think they have to wit 24 hours but they


don't. If you are watching this you are the best person to decide


whether something needs to be reported to the police. For a


four-year-old two minutes is a long time to wait but if one of us


doesn't make it to where we are expected this evening the people


expecting us home will know what a normal amount of time for us to


perhaps be a little bit late. Use your judgment and have the


confidence to call the police. I work with police forces all over the


UK and they would be devastated to think that somebody waited too long.


Most people are found very quickly, thankfully. 90% of people will be


found within 24 hours so the good news is most people are found safe


and well, they are found very quickly, and when we work together


with the police, the charity and the police are doing everything we can


to find that person and support the family.


Karen, thank you for the clarity and what you can do. If you'd like more


information about the issues you can have a look at the website.


In 1970 three women attempted an epic rally race from London


to Mexico, but it ended in failure in an Argentinian ditch.


Now nearly 50 years on, two of them are coming out


of retirement to try racing again, and they took Lucy for a spin.


Built in 1969, 1500 cc engine, 95 brake horsepower, the Austin Maxi.


Puff the Magic Dragon as known to her on a 72-year-old Mrs Burrell.


Nice to meet you. This is the Magic Dragon. She was given the chance to


buy the car back and after a good rummage under the bonnet she is


ready to rally once again. In 1970 they embarked on a Sistine thousand


mile rally from London to Mexico but an accident meant they didn't make


it to the finish line and afterwards the team went their separate ways.


-- 16,000 miles. The car is back in action and they have big plans.


Emotionally what does it feel like to be back? Its emotional because I


never thought this day would come, I never thought I would be back with


Puff and Tina. I need a new knee but I have a new lease of life. Tina,


what was your role on the team? It was a matter of one would sleep, one


would navigate and one would Drive and we would take it in turns. We


used to do three days and the third day have a night's sleep if we were


lucky and go on for another three days. You know I've never been a


rally car? No! ? Come on, girl, grabbed a helmet. 40 years on and


with her beloved but the Magic Dragon back in her position they are


back on track. I must say I do love the speed. I didn't know I did. I


went to a driving school and got faster and faster and I suddenly


said you better slowdown, beginners are not supposed to do 70 mph. This


is so much fun! I don't like the corners! The Sunday would be a


sprint after the normal rally on the Friday and then I would be back at


work on Monday. My rallying life stopped abruptly when my mother


died, I had to go back to New Zealand and I fell out of the sport.


So, why now? I think because the car is available. Puff rides again. Puff


is going to run again, yes she is. She is repeating her steps from 1970


and we are going from London to Lisbon.


Tremendous, we are going to catch up with them, aren't we as soon as the


rally finishes? We are going to talk about Apple Tree Yard, this big


drama on Sunday nights. Let's do a driving related incident because you


just said something interesting during the filming with cars. Go on.


After you. We had a driving scene together and I have a terrible sense


of direction but then's is worse. The worst in the world, I think. I


was driving so it was his fault, he was opposed to tell me where we were


going to go. I thought they would have you on those trailers. This is


the BBC, we can't afford the trailers, we were just driving


around. We got back to almost the location and we were running out of


time and light. He sent me completely the wrong way. I said it


was that way authoritatively and it was completely wrong and we were


delayed getting back. It is really difficult. It was the crew, you are


trying to say? As well as driving you are supposed to be acting a


really intense scene and it's really dangerous because when you are


acting all of your safety things go out of the window.


LAUGHTER Absolute shambles, basically. Yes,


it was. Let's talk about Apple Tree Yard. Yvonne, your character, must


make a dramatic life decision. Tell us more about how that happens? I do


know how much of a rational decision it is, it is a spur of the moment


thing that happens to her. She is a woman my age who has a very nice,


proper life. She has a long marriage, they have grown up


children, she has a grandchild on the way. She is a geneticist, she


has a great career, and suddenly out of the blue she suddenly starts


having this passionate affair with a random stranger, which at the


beginning of it is sort of very beguiling and exciting because it is


Ben. Random stranger. My character name! Let's have a look at the


moment where things start to simmer. It gets hot in here. You don't look


like a civil servant. You don't look like a scientist.


Assume neither of us is looking for a parachute. Absolutely not.


It gets very steamy, it is interesting to see your reactions


watching that because the long pauses, it is quite tense. Was that


something that developed? They were very filled, those long pauses. Yes.


I don't know. It is partly direction and editing. It was one of those


things where we wanted to make it feel very real, and Ben and I have


known each other for a long time, we've made two films before this so


we had a level of comfort that meant a lot of the time we were in danger


of laughing. We were, and that is not a bad place to be. Is it true


that you asked for him to get the role? She got me the job. When you


heard this was about to uncover, what were your thoughts? It was a


very exciting script, it really was, great character, but it has a lot of


love scenes in it. Does it make it easier or harder that you know each


other? I had not been through that before. You've done a lot of


kissing. I have done. We were talking and it was exciting, but we


were saying, because we know each other, isn't it going to be worse?


She thought that all the way through. One thing we are very proud


of, we decided we would talk about it in a grown-up way and planet. Are


saved from the steam and raunchiness it is a fantastic drama on BBC One


this Sunday evening at 9pm. Thankfully last Friday's storm surge


down the east coast didn't cause as much flooding as feared,


but you can see from this just how You can bet that


there'll be more bad weather before winter is out -


and Andy Torbet has put himself in peril to show you how to escape


if the very worst happens. Finding yourself in a critical


situation is something that many of us will never experience but for one


family from North Devon this turned into a life or death situation in a


very short period of time. Vanessa and her son were on the way home. We


were driving home and found ourselves in deceptively deep


floodwater. When we entered it, it was like driving into a swimming


pool, and what came into the cab and was immediately above my ankles. I


feel stupid because I've attempted to open the door and that would have


been catastrophic. The electrics failed because my window and door


would not move. Luckily her husband had opened his window before the


electrics shorted. I passed my son out of the window but I was


terrified that if the vehicle capsized I would be pinned


underneath it and underwater. Fortunately, Vanessa was rescued but


many others have lost their lives in similar situations. It can take less


than a minute for your car to fill with water. If it ends up it will


sink quickly. What should you do? There are two schools of thought.


Some say, get the window down as soon as possible. Others say, leave


the window up. Get the door open and get out. The window option relies on


quick reactions, the other holding your breath. How do these plans


compare? We will put these theories to the test. I'm going to submerge


this car in water. This is genuinely dangerous so I have a safety team on


hand, including a diver in the car with a spare a supply. I'm going to


try the window method first so here goes. The electrics field virtually


straightaway and I cannot open the window. With the pressure from the


water outside, no matter how hard I try I cannot open the door. As the


water rises I realise at this point I'm trapped. That was more unnerving


than I expected and I'm very experienced. Slowly rise up the


ankles, up to your chest. The window did not work. The electrics blew


out. Now for the second option of submerging the car completely. It


relies on nerves and steel. After the last bit of a disappearance I


managed to get out. But I'm in a controlled situation. Apparently


there is a simple way of getting out of the car. I've got a window


hammer. There is a little punch and you press it in the corner of the


window and it shattered the glass and enables you to exit through the


window. In I go again. I'm armed with a hammer. I let the water come


up and I give it a go. After a split second I can easily climb up through


the window. That worked than absolute treat. Literally press it


in the corner of the window and it disappears. I genuinely believe this


will save your life in that situation. Now you know what to ask


the kids for. Would you have gone for winding the window down? Who


knows. I don't know less from right. I think I would have gone for


winding the window down. But that doesn't work. It is just that awful


moment. Miranda's latest film stars


an endangered species not used to being on camera,


but for her they gave And showed us something


we've never seen before. This pine marten is pregnant and for


the first time on television with exclusive access to the birth and


early life of her kids. 100 years ago they were almost extinct in


Britain and today they are barely seen. Despite breeding programmes it


has been difficult to increase their numbers because they can be


extremely aggressive. This is one of the few places to have successfully


bred pine marten is in captivity but it has taken some real ingenuity to


get things going. Staff have devised obligated enclosures that allow the


animals to see and get familiar with each other but not touch until


mating time. Pine marten is leather separate life. They are very


solitary and when they come together they fight and that's why we've got


all around us these panels of love. A real walkways of love. The


actually go through this enclosure so they can learn to get along with


each other, and that happens weeks before a meeting. During the meeting


we've got chapter is everywhere so if they have a fight we've got


keepers on hand with police and rope to a low then to escape. This means


they can be separated from each other for their own safety. A fight


could be fatal if there were no means of escape. Whisper and Yorkie


are prized breeders and they have bred six children. There are more on


the way. Peter and his team have built a pine marten friendly nest


and have rigged that with cameras which can film in complete darkness.


When they are feted in the enclosure it is essential to be quiet and


careful. They are easily scared and a female has the ability to end


their own pregnancy if something settles her. Whisper likes her new


home and after two weeks she gives birth. Staff have been filming her


24-7, from the moment of birth through the first few weeks. And


then, something extraordinary. The first ever footage of a kit being


born. There we see number two. So cute. 2016 is a record-breaking


year, as four have been born. She's curled up like a ball around these


little things. Within a week, the kits get more lively. That is the


first time mum has left the nest. It is Whisper's first chance after


leaving the nest. Look at the circling now. Just unbelievably


cute. They are boisterous. A lot of play fighting going on. Not much


room in there for her. The kits and her mother are slowly outgrowing the


box. You can see she is very. It is so charming. After seven weeks, one


of the kits pierced tentatively out of the world and then, with mum


watching, it leaves the nest. The others soon followed. This insight


could play a crucial part in ensuring the recovery of one of the


toughest but cutest native mammals. And none have been born since so it


was very special to see that. Then, we can see you playing Carrie Grant.


You said it was difficult to nail down the voice. I'm not sure I did.


He is between British and American. I did it pretty much by myself, I


did not have much help. In the end it seemed to go back, there is a


character in team America, it is not the most natural performance but


that is where it seemed to go. You've got the look. Thanks, man.


Thanks for your company. You are off to Prague to play Einstein's wife.


We will see you tomorrow.
