Well, to The One Show with Matt

Baker.

And Alex George. Whilst we

0:00:160:00:25

deal with the beast from the east we

have the perfect guest to cosy up

0:00:250:00:29

tonight.

The BAFTA winning actor and

writer that everyone wants to work

0:00:290:00:35

with, if this is anything to go by.

What's up?

I just want to say hello.

0:00:350:00:43

I will work for you for free.

I

think I would be great for this job.

0:00:430:00:49

I can make it easy for you, meet you

at your local.

I am right behind

0:00:490:00:56

you, save me a seat.

I want to pick

myself up against the best I can

0:00:560:01:02

find.

I think what we are saying

is...

It's not a problem...

Please

0:01:020:01:12

welcome Sharon Horgan! CHEERING

APPLAUSE

0:01:120:01:18

That is such a weird mash up.

What

we saw were clips from some of the

0:01:180:01:23

most popular shows you've done,

Catastrophe, Divorce with Sarah

0:01:230:01:29

Jessica Parker, an Anderson and the

brilliant Motherland. They are

0:01:290:01:37

collaborations so you must be the

easiest person to write with.

I am

0:01:370:01:43

just grateful for help. It is much

easier to write with someone else

0:01:430:01:47

because it means you laugh and you

know what is funny if somebody is

0:01:470:01:53

laughing along. I am fairly easy.

Have you dealt with the fact that

0:01:530:02:02

people want to write with you and

work with you and things are

0:02:020:02:06

successful at the moment?

No.

Does

it still feels strange?

It does feel

0:02:060:02:12

bonkers. I did not even start

working in TV until I was in my 30s.

0:02:120:02:19

That's good, in a way, because I am

super grateful for it. It's weird

0:02:190:02:25

seeing that, all those people. I

should make sure with everyone

0:02:250:02:30

together, it seems to work, you did

a nice job.

You could get all your

0:02:300:02:34

favourite cast members back.

Well

unless you spent the last 24 hours

0:02:340:02:41

in hibernation you will have noticed

the Mercury has plummeted and it's

0:02:410:02:45

all thanks to a blast of cold air

from Siberia dubbed Beast from the

0:02:450:02:48

East.

This is what it was like when

we arrived this afternoon.

We had

0:02:480:02:55

just been to the cinema watching

your new movie which we will talk

0:02:550:02:59

about but you don't often get scenes

like that.

It is like we were in New

0:02:590:03:03

York!

Yes, we are going outside...

It is warmer now than it was a few

0:03:030:03:13

hours ago. They say it is zero but

feels like -20 five.

What were you

0:03:130:03:20

hoping for.

0:03:200:03:26

hoping for.

-7 up north at the

moment.

Temperatures are expected to

0:03:260:03:31

be a lot colder overnight and

tomorrow and as we've been finding

0:03:310:03:34

out in Norfolk a lot has been done

to keep people warm and safe as they

0:03:340:03:38

prepare for the worst.

First thing in the morning, rush

0:03:380:03:43

hour and it is absolutely freezing.

-3, feels like -7 with wind chill

0:03:430:03:48

and a bit of snow on the ground. For

the good people of Norwich it's time

0:03:480:03:53

to get to work. Or not is the case

may be. The so-called Beast from the

0:03:530:03:58

East weather system created havoc

for commuters before it arrived will

0:03:580:04:01

stop on Sunday Greater Anglia trains

postponed and cancelled well before

0:04:010:04:07

flake of snow had the tracks. I'm

wondering where you are trying to

0:04:070:04:12

get to?

Barcelona.

Let me check the

departures...

They are running

0:04:120:04:21

hourly.

That's a bit nervous, trains

running hourly when you're trying to

0:04:210:04:27

get a flight, will it work out for

you?

I hope so.

My daughters school

0:04:270:04:33

is closed and they only let me know

ten hours before it started so I

0:04:330:04:37

have call friends.

That's not good

enough.

No, it's just a bit of snow.

0:04:370:04:44

Your train is running?

It is and I

am pleased. I'm meeting a friend, we

0:04:440:04:51

planned this trip for a long time.

What are you doing?

I could not

0:04:510:04:57

possibly say. I will not be back

until Friday.

This bitterly cold

0:04:570:05:02

weather is not just for a problem

trying to get around, when the

0:05:020:05:05

temperature plummets it's the

vulnerable and elderly who are most

0:05:050:05:08

at risk even in their own homes.

Community nurse Claire has to battle

0:05:080:05:13

the cold weather as she goes on

around checking her patients. How

0:05:130:05:17

tricky it is the cold weather for

some of the people you are seeing?

0:05:170:05:25

Very burnable patients, it's

important to prioritise and see

0:05:250:05:30

patients who have specific needs

such as injections, maybe insulin.

0:05:300:05:34

It's important they get that

injection.

So some you cannot fail

0:05:340:05:38

to get to?

That's right.

What are

your key considerations?

Keeping

0:05:380:05:45

them safe and warm and comfortable,

knowing they have helped if they

0:05:450:05:49

need it.

Today she's checking on

Eileen.

I am going to change leg of

0:05:490:05:56

that is OK? Ginger bandage.

How

important is it that the nurse comes

0:05:560:06:01

to see you?

Very important, I've not

been outside for tonight years.

That

0:06:010:06:09

long? And that is because of

mobility issues?

Yes.

What advice do

0:06:090:06:16

you give about hot weather? -- cold

weather?

Hot food and keep active to

0:06:160:06:23

try to get the blood flowing. It's

important we come today because of

0:06:230:06:27

the bandages are not in place you

risk open wounds getting infected.

0:06:270:06:33

It's showing good signs of healing.

You are on the mend.

You're on the

0:06:330:06:37

mend.

I'm on the mend!

The

north-east and Home Counties have

0:06:370:06:45

been some of the worst affected

areas seeing as much as ten

0:06:450:06:48

centimetres of snow fall. On the

roads traffic was at a standstill on

0:06:480:06:53

the 20 in Kent. Tomorrow it could be

worse.

0:06:530:06:58

Could be worse but Ben Rich is here

to confirm, there has been a lot of

0:06:580:07:03

hype about this, is it that bad?

I

think it is. I think it has lived up

0:07:030:07:12

to the hype. Temperatures struggling

to get above freezing during the

0:07:120:07:16

day, wind chill and this is

widespread across the whole country,

0:07:160:07:20

not just parts of Scotland are

Eastern areas, everywhere is cold

0:07:200:07:24

and just about everywhere by the end

of the week will have seen snow as

0:07:240:07:27

well.

We are used to subzero

temperatures here but the air and

0:07:270:07:32

the cold, I feel Zagadou from kind?

I think that's because of it has

0:07:320:07:39

come from, we have heard more times

than you can shake a stick at, Beast

0:07:390:07:43

from the East. That is the air

coming from Siberia which is dry, it

0:07:430:07:51

is land so air from there will not

be moist, it will be dry. One of the

0:07:510:07:56

things you might have noticed as you

not needed to scrape your car not

0:07:560:07:59

because it's not been called it's

just the air has not been moist

0:07:590:08:03

enough.

This is all news to me. I

did not know it was even snowing. I

0:08:030:08:11

think you just want this.

You think

I want this to happen?

Fake news.

On

0:08:110:08:22

the weather maps, you say it is too

dry for ice and snow but on the

0:08:220:08:27

maps, it should tomorrow and

Thursday that all this white stuff

0:08:270:08:31

is spreading, is that snow?

Yes,

0:08:310:08:37

Thursday that all this white stuff

is spreading, is that snow?

Yes,

0:08:370:08:38

that is snow.

0:08:380:08:48

We might have thunder snow.

That is

even better than Beast from the

0:08:490:08:55

East!

That will be in your next show

wanted?

No.

This is from Devon.

0:08:550:09:10

wanted?

No.

This is from Devon.

This

is a postcard.

No it isn't. You

0:09:100:09:17

wanted thunder snow?

This is that

big cloud waiting to drop a whole

0:09:170:09:25

load on us tomorrow?

Yes, there

could be blazers in the south

0:09:250:09:29

tomorrow. -- buzzers. As the area of

low pressure, called storm MR. As it

0:09:290:09:38

runs on to the cold air parts

0:09:380:09:43

if we are going to go for it we

might as well have a blizzard.

I

0:09:490:09:54

wondered why the Portuguese called

it Emma? .

Thank you to everyone who

0:09:540:10:03

sent in videos and postcards, keep

them coming in.

If you want

0:10:030:10:09

sent in videos and postcards, keep

them coming in.

If you want to help

0:10:090:10:09

take the temperature of the nation

we are looking for a short weather

0:10:090:10:12

report from your area so get your

telephone, hold it like a landscape

0:10:120:10:18

and send us a quick video telling us

what the weather is like in your

0:10:180:10:21

area, how it is affecting you or how

it is not affecting you, include the

0:10:210:10:25

area, how it is affecting you or how

it is not affecting you, include the

0:10:250:10:25

temperature if you can and we will

show some tomorrow.

Thank you, I

0:10:250:10:29

like how you held it like that.

Good.

Sharon's new film is called

0:10:290:10:35

Game Night, it's all about a group

of friends getting together to play

0:10:350:10:40

board games. At least that's how

things start.

They are not

0:10:400:10:45

everyone's idea of fun apparently

but whatever you do do not see that

0:10:450:10:48

these guys.

We love board games so much we

0:10:480:10:54

opened our own board game category.

-- cafe. 10-15 years ago it was

0:10:540:11:01

unheard of people would come and

play board games but now it's the

0:11:010:11:04

cool thing to do.

We opened up the

cafe so there would be a space for

0:11:040:11:09

people to sit and relax and hang out

with friends and play games.

It's

0:11:090:11:14

Friday evening, you can hear the

buzz, people are arriving and

0:11:140:11:18

laughing and it's not even 6pm.

0:11:180:11:23

We will have 25-year-olds playing

hungry hippos, we will have an

0:11:230:11:31

elderly couple playing Scrabble.

We'll have some heavyweight gamer

0:11:310:11:35

geeks playing a five-hour game of

strategy.

We have a regular dungeon

0:11:350:11:41

and Dragons nightwear people come.

You open the door and walk down and

0:11:410:11:44

suddenly a dark Lord standing there

with a big axe, he wants to kill

0:11:440:11:48

you, what do you do now? I roll six.

They are lots of fun and I watch

0:11:480:11:56

people playing games and connecting

together and it sometimes has

0:11:560:11:59

reduced me to tears and that is

amazing.

I set up a company to make

0:11:590:12:08

people feel socially included in

games nights. Everyone gets a sense

0:12:080:12:13

of inclusion. Everyone gets a sense

of accomplishment. I have suffered

0:12:130:12:17

everything from depression to

anxiety, it can be difficult to

0:12:170:12:22

socialise or feel like you're part

of a group or feel the same as

0:12:220:12:25

everyone else. When I play board

games and table top games there is

0:12:250:12:29

an aspect of logical sense which

puts people into roles without

0:12:290:12:32

emotional needs. It's a lot easier

to interact. And understand what is

0:12:320:12:38

going on in the social situation. I

held an event in Hackney, people

0:12:380:12:43

came down and I offered pizza,

drinks and the games themselves. I

0:12:430:12:49

believe board games saved my life,

they gave me a purpose and they give

0:12:490:12:53

me meaning and understanding. I want

to be able to give that to other

0:12:530:12:58

people.

I work in the British Museum

and it's my good fortune to find out

0:12:580:13:06

rules for an ancient board game

which is the oldest game in the

0:13:060:13:10

world we know how to play today. We

know how to play it and we can

0:13:100:13:14

imagine rather well the environment

in which it was played because it

0:13:140:13:17

was a race game. Two players, you

had pieces and dice and you had to

0:13:170:13:22

race around the board and get home

before your opponent. The most

0:13:220:13:26

important thing is about this whole

subject, what we call games night,

0:13:260:13:30

they exist and are important around

the world but they are at the tail

0:13:300:13:36

end of a whole long process of

thousands of generations of people

0:13:360:13:39

playing together. I think this

phenomenon of using your daily

0:13:390:13:47

preoccupations for a moment in this

kind of arena is a very beneficial

0:13:470:13:51

thing.

Isn't that wonderful?

They

say the family that plays together

0:13:510:13:57

stays together.

I have never heard

that one.

But your new film Game

0:13:570:14:04

Night is out on Friday and it's

about couples getting together to

0:14:040:14:07

play games but it's not just

Monopoly and corridor, things

0:14:070:14:15

progress to something more dramatic.

Yes, if this were I tell you about

0:14:150:14:21

the film?

LAUGHTER

Yes, they are friends who have games

0:14:210:14:28

nights, the characters at the heart

of it are played by Jason Bateman

0:14:280:14:31

and Rachael McAdams, Jason Bateman's

character is very competitive with

0:14:310:14:37

Kyle Chandler who plays his brother.

It's a murder mystery party but he's

0:14:370:14:41

mixed up with shady folks and shady

dealings. So the game night turns

0:14:410:14:45

into a real-life murder mystery and

hilarity ensues.

Lets get a sense of

0:14:450:14:52

it, here is your character

explaining to her very odd neighbour

0:14:520:14:55

how you got involved.

How long have

you two been a couple?

We are not.

0:14:550:15:06

We work together. I would not, I

would not do that.

I thought I

0:15:060:15:12

detected a certain chemistry between

the two of you.

No. No way. No.

I'm

0:15:120:15:20

not the best judge of chemistry in

the world.

0:15:200:15:29

Because your wife left you.

You

didn't start working as you know it

0:15:370:15:40

now until you were in your 30s. This

is your first big Hollywood film.

0:15:400:15:45

Yeah.

How have you been comparing

the two, the sitcom writing to being

0:15:450:15:52

in Hollywood?

There's better food!

That is the only difference!

You

0:15:520:16:02

know, bigger budgets and more money

and more toys to play with. But I

0:16:020:16:06

mean it's the same kind of thing. We

are all just trying to bring your

0:16:060:16:11

script to the screen.

Is it less

stressful? You are so involved with

0:16:110:16:17

the writing and editing normally and

in it sometimes, this must have been

0:16:170:16:20

like a holiday?

Oh, yeah. It was

really relaxing. Yeah. Just turning

0:16:200:16:25

up and saying a few lines and then

just going back to my trailer for a

0:16:250:16:29

kip.

No doubt writing while in your

trailer?

I was, actually. I had to

0:16:290:16:35

find time to slot it in. We were

about to start making Motherland. I

0:16:350:16:40

was saying to Holly, I will be able

to do it. I'll keep writing. We

0:16:400:16:47

wrote on Skype two episodes of

Motherland while I was there. You

0:16:470:16:51

get so much time in your trailer.

What else are you going to be doing?

0:16:510:16:57

Knitting or reading.

Is it something

you would like to do more of. You

0:16:570:17:01

are busy with writing. Would you

like to put it to one side and do

0:17:010:17:04

the writing?

No. No, not really. I

mean, it's fun acting. The reason I

0:17:040:17:09

wanted to do it because I hadn't

done any for a while. Apart from

0:17:090:17:14

Catastrophe. Write something really

hard work. It takes up a lot of

0:17:140:17:17

time. Yeah, it's fun to go and play

and just do a...

It's a full on

0:17:170:17:24

film. A lot of action.

There is. I

liked doing that, though.

That's

0:17:240:17:29

what you think about a Hollywood

film, isn't it? A little bird told

0:17:290:17:34

us that you are writing your own

film.

Oh, yeah. Me and Holly Walsh.

0:17:340:17:42

Sharon Horgan tell us more.

I can't.

You are going to have. We're here

0:17:420:17:46

now. What's the plot? What's the

feel? Something?

We pitched it as a

0:17:460:17:57

comedy single, white female. A

female buddy movie.

Comedy?

Yes,

0:17:570:18:02

it's definitely a comedy.

Two girls.

Yes. I will not tell you what it's

0:18:020:18:10

about. We are still writing it. We

have written it, we need to make it

0:18:100:18:13

better. I don't want to jinx it if I

tell what you it's about is will

0:18:130:18:21

sound rubbish and no-one will come

on board.

At the end do you drive

0:18:210:18:24

over a cliff?

Yeah.

Games Night is

on Friday. We had fun watching it.

0:18:240:18:31

We did.

0:18:310:18:34

Time now to catch up

with Emma Massingdale on her journey

0:18:340:18:36

through the Outer Hebrides.

0:18:360:18:38

As a One Show regular,

Emma's led her horses -

0:18:380:18:40

Noah and Storm - through some

of the most rugged and spectacular

0:18:400:18:43

landscapes in the UK.

0:18:430:18:44

Now, it's time to take them home.

0:18:440:18:48

I'm on my fourth day travelling up

through the Outer Hebrides with my

0:18:480:18:53

dog Inca and my ponies, Noah and

Storm. I've arrived on Eriskay where

0:18:530:18:59

the breed got their name. This is

literally heaven. Eriskay ponies

0:18:590:19:05

were down to their last 20 in the

1970s, thanks to the work of

0:19:050:19:10

dedicated local people their numbers

are back up to around 420 worldwide.

0:19:100:19:17

Donald's family have have lived on

the island for generations and used

0:19:170:19:23

them on their small holdings.

Everyone would have had a pony at

0:19:230:19:27

with you time. It was the vital part

of working the croft.

As demand

0:19:270:19:34

fell, so did their numbers. Once

again, they are an important part of

0:19:340:19:38

island life.

They are a tourist

attraction. They are quite popular

0:19:380:19:43

with the tourists and good for the

island. This time of year, if you

0:19:430:19:47

look around the place, it's nice and

green. If there wasn't anything

0:19:470:19:51

grazing on the island it wouldn't be

that green. It would be overrun.

As

0:19:510:19:56

for my two ponies I have had to keep

them separate from the wild herd as

0:19:560:20:02

it can takes for them to be

accepted. They are enjoying their

0:20:020:20:06

home land. Noah and Storm are happy

to roam free. Nice to see them

0:20:060:20:10

getting to live like a true Eriskay

pony. Eriskay is not just famous for

0:20:100:20:18

its ponies their football pitch is

recognised by Fifa as one of the

0:20:180:20:22

most remarkable places to play in

the world. The first thing you

0:20:220:20:25

notice is that the pitch is... How

they play on it, I don't know. On

0:20:250:20:31

this corner it can go straight down

hill. After a bumpy and wet game,

0:20:310:20:37

Eriskay snatch a 4-3 win. At the

island's only pub I join Martin and

0:20:370:20:44

Sean for a drink. With such a small

population on the island it can be

0:20:440:20:48

tough to rustle up a team.

A lot of

phoning around a couple of nights

0:20:480:20:53

before. We get there in the end.

What do other teams make of your

0:20:530:20:57

incredible pitch here?

They moan a

lot. You hear them moaning and

0:20:570:21:03

groaning about it. The pitch has

been there for 50, 60 years. It's

0:21:030:21:05

unique.

Although there are six main

islands, the Outer Hebrides is made

0:21:050:21:10

up of hundreds of little ones as

well with most uninhabited I'm

0:21:100:21:15

camping on one of them tonight. To

get there we nighed to cross a tide

0:21:150:21:20

al cross way, which is possible when

the tide has gone out. Well, at the

0:21:200:21:25

moment the road just runs into the

sea. We have to wait four hours, but

0:21:250:21:29

it's worthwhile. Out to sea we go.

It shows just how brilliant these

0:21:290:21:36

ponies are.

0:21:360:21:41

ponies are. This is amazing. This

tidele causeway is a mile-and-a-half

0:21:410:21:47

long and allows the ponies to get up

a bit of speed. Oh, my word. That

0:21:470:21:51

was so much fun.

0:21:510:21:57

was so much fun. The ponies are

cantering along. The spray was going

0:21:570:22:00

everywhere. Awesome. Our own

companions on the island are

0:22:000:22:06

highlands cows who seem pleased to

have company. You guys are awesome.

0:22:060:22:10

After I set up camp, the rain comes

in again. One minutes it's sunny and

0:22:100:22:16

nice. The next minute, pouring and

rain. Literally deluge of waterfalls

0:22:160:22:23

out of the sky. In the morning, the

journey back across the causeway is

0:22:230:22:27

horrendous. I'm absolutely soaked.

Covered in sand and I really feel

0:22:270:22:33

like I need a coffee and some hot

breakfast.

0:22:330:22:41

breakfast. The ponies are used to

the climate. They have a swinging

0:22:410:22:45

rock to tell them how bad the

weather is. It's wet and windy,

0:22:450:22:50

according to the rock. While I get

warmed up, the po Ennis have to wait

0:22:500:22:55

outside. Sorry, boys. This is just a

pitstop as we still have plenty more

0:22:550:23:02

miles to cover. The journey will get

tougher as we head to the largest

0:23:020:23:07

and most mountainous islands of

Lewis and Harris I will get close to

0:23:070:23:12

the fantastic wildlife that inhabits

these islands. He got it! Thank you,

0:23:120:23:19

Emma.

We have Jenga out. In honour of

your film

That little clip was

0:23:260:23:32

textbook One be show.

Of course.

There is a catch. If you pull a

0:23:320:23:36

block out and it has black on that

will be a confession question. If

0:23:360:23:40

it's red we will have more of a

career based question.

OK.

Future

0:23:400:23:44

and stuff.

All right.

That is a good

one.

Red.

Sensible question.

Serious

0:23:440:23:57

one of Divorce starring Sarah

Jessica Parker was a big hit.

0:23:570:24:00

We understand it's back tonight.

What can we expect?

Oh, we do the

0:24:000:24:06

post-divorce. There is signing the

papers in the first episode. The

0:24:060:24:12

first series was really, you know,

tough kind of going. A lot of pain.

0:24:120:24:17

This is them just trying to embark

on lives outside of each other. They

0:24:170:24:23

have kids and are still...

Are you

feeling nervous it starts tonight?

0:24:230:24:27

No.

You are happy?

No, it's grand.

40 seconds.

Sugar.

Come on.

Black.

0:24:270:24:35

Confession.

OK.

Quick.

What's the

most expensive thing you've ever

0:24:350:24:42

stolen?

Like a bag of pick-n Halifax

mix.

A whole bag. Normal people do

0:24:420:24:49

one or two!

In my local supermarket

you could fill up a bag of

0:24:490:24:59

pick-n-mix...

She's not the woman I

They are basically thought.

Saying -

0:24:590:25:03

help yourself to kids.

We are done.

We are done.

0:25:030:25:10

Finally tonight, a fierce argument

is raging in Northern Ireland

0:25:110:25:14

which has nothing to do

with power-sharing or

0:25:140:25:15

hard and soft borders.

0:25:150:25:17

Andy Kershaw's been

to find out more.

0:25:170:25:19

This barge in Northern Ireland is

extracting one of the most in demand

0:25:190:25:23

natural resources on the planet.

It's not oil and it's not gas, it's

0:25:230:25:28

sand. Incredibly, after water, sand

is the second most sought after

0:25:280:25:35

commodity in the world. Now most of

us probably don't give sand a second

0:25:350:25:40

thought. When you move sand from a

place like this, and take it

0:25:400:25:45

somewhere else, then what damage

does it leave behind? Every year in

0:25:450:25:52

Britain around 16 million tonnes of

it is dredged from under water. Here

0:25:520:25:58

at lock anyway, Britain's biggest

lake, annually 1.5 million tonnes of

0:25:580:26:02

sand is excavated. It's also a

specially protected site. As you can

0:26:020:26:08

imagine, not everyone is a fan of

sand dredging. In some parts of the

0:26:080:26:14

country, the practice is highly

controversial. Even more so here

0:26:140:26:18

because it's happening without

planning permission. Local

0:26:180:26:24

fishermen, Martin Devlin, has been

making a living from this lake for

0:26:240:26:28

had more than 30 years.

This area

here is the area of contention.

He

0:26:280:26:31

invited me to hop in his fishing

boat to get a closer look. We are

0:26:310:26:36

surrounded by three dredgers. You

can see the process in action. There

0:26:360:26:39

is a huge pipe that goes down to the

bed of the lake which is sucking

0:26:390:26:43

Uptons of sand.

They are encroaching

in spawning ground and areas which

0:26:430:26:50

are used by the small fish for

shelter and for feeding. Those areas

0:26:500:26:57

have been sacrosanct for us to

generations. There are more

0:26:570:27:01

stakeholders on lock anyway and that

the sand dredgers.

You think there

0:27:010:27:07

should be co-ordination so sand

dredging and fishing can happily

0:27:070:27:10

co-exist?

If we are to leave

anything for the next generations of

0:27:100:27:16

fishermen and sand dredgers we need

to do something about it now.

Gordon

0:27:160:27:22

Best represents the sand traders. He

believes dredging from the lake is

0:27:220:27:26

vital.

Virtually all the sand that

is taken out

0:27:260:27:33

is taken out of n out is used in the

construction industry. Even the

0:27:350:27:40

iconic Parliament Buildings behind

me was built using sand. If the sand

0:27:400:27:51

supply stopped tomorrow it would

have a devastating effect on the

0:27:510:27:54

Northern Ireland economy.

The

Northern Ireland Government

0:27:540:27:57

announced the public inquiry into an

application for planning permission

0:27:570:28:00

for dredging here. James Orr from

Friends of the Effort wants it

0:28:000:28:05

stopped until a decision is made.

This is where it's stored. This is

0:28:050:28:11

one of several different processing

plants. We are simply saying, how

0:28:110:28:18

long can we sustain this unlawful

extraction and not plan

0:28:180:28:24

strategically for this resource in

the future. The biggest unauthorised

0:28:240:28:29

extraction in Northern Ireland.

This

dredging must have to be licenced in

0:28:290:28:32

some way? There is a licence of

sorts and that's the Easterly of

0:28:320:28:40

Shaftesbury who owns the bay of the

Loch. People may be surprised by

0:28:400:28:49

that. It's a massive global problem?

Across the world companies, called

0:28:490:28:56

sanded Mafias, are moving in and

illegally extracting these

0:28:560:29:00

resources. It's a crisis in terms of

the availability Forlan few future

0:29:000:29:07

generations of a finite resources.

Bird species are being lost because

0:29:070:29:12

of unauthorised extraction.

The

Government says that while it makes

0:29:120:29:16

a decision over planning permission,

it has put controls in place which

0:29:160:29:20

monitor dredges and limit the amount

of sand they can extract. Fisherman

0:29:200:29:31

marpt inis happy with his catch. It

seems unlikely that the line in the

0:29:310:29:35

sand will be drawn over this row any

time soon. You have learned about

0:29:350:29:40

dredging as well tonight.

I know. I

always wanted to know about sand.

0:29:400:29:46

That's it for tonight.

0:29:460:29:47

Thanks to our guest, Sharon Horgan.
