Good morning!

0:00:040:00:06

You're watching Newsround.

0:00:060:00:07

Ricky here with

Wednesday's top stories.

0:00:070:00:08

Coming up...

0:00:080:00:10

What's in store for

tonight's Brit Awards!

0:00:100:00:16

And we've got a sneek peek

at the new Doctor Who logo!

0:00:160:00:23

First to the US.

0:00:290:00:31

After 17 people were killed

in an attack at a school

0:00:310:00:33

in Florida last week,

students there have been making

0:00:330:00:36

a stand against guns.

0:00:360:00:39

BBC reporter Paul Blake has

travelled with the pupils who're

0:00:390:00:43

talking to politicians

about the changes they want.

0:00:430:00:50

All of the students on board are

survivors of a school shooting that

0:00:500:00:55

happened last week in the city of

parkland in Florida. Last week's

0:00:550:00:58

attack is the sixth attack by Gunne

on a school in the US this year.

0:00:580:01:06

Today, we are going to talk to

lawmakers about the ways we can make

0:01:060:01:11

schools safer and waste place

controls on guns in our country. I

0:01:110:01:15

do not safe in my school. I was

incredibly afraid, I was scared for

0:01:150:01:23

my friends, I was scared for my

little sister, I was scared for

0:01:230:01:30

everybody there and they need to

know that that should never happen

0:01:300:01:33

to anybody else. Nobody should ever

feel how I felt.

We want to talk to

0:01:330:01:39

lawmakers say that less people have

access to guns and less people get

0:01:390:01:45

hurt.

The students are not alone.

Many people in the US want reforms

0:01:450:01:51

but at the same time many people

want them to remain the same. But

0:01:510:01:57

the students on board the bus today

say they think they can convince

0:01:570:02:02

politicians to make the laws tougher

and they died eight hours today to

0:02:020:02:05

talk to them about it.

I'm so proud

of all our friends. We are young,

0:02:050:02:10

not much older than you, but we made

a real difference, I think.

Many of

0:02:100:02:15

these students have never been

involved in politics but they say

0:02:150:02:18

they are really just getting

started. Next month, they will go

0:02:180:02:21

all the way to Washington, DC to

tell politicians they need to do

0:02:210:02:26

more to keep kids safe.

0:02:260:02:29

It's Brits time tonight,

the biggest night in British music.

0:02:290:02:31

While Dua Lipa, Justin Timberlake

and Ed Sheeran are warming

0:02:310:02:33

up their vocal chords,

Ayshah's been finding out some weird

0:02:330:02:36

and fun facts about the event.

0:02:360:02:37

Five things you might not

know about the Brits.

0:02:370:02:39

Different categories come and go.

0:02:390:02:41

One year, there was the Best

British Comedy Record.

0:02:410:02:43

And in 2013, One Direction

got the catchy title of

0:02:430:02:46

Brits Global Success Award.

0:02:460:02:50

That's it, I'm making

up my own award.

0:02:500:02:53

Best Dancing Newsround Presenter.

0:02:530:02:55

Sorry, Ricky.

0:02:550:02:58

The reason why we have the Brits

is because of the Queen.

0:02:580:03:04

Seriously.

0:03:040:03:05

It all started back in 1977

to mark her silver jubilee.

0:03:050:03:08

It's now in its 38th year

and showcases all of Britain's best

0:03:080:03:10

music talent.

0:03:100:03:11

Thanks, Ma'am.

0:03:110:03:16

The statue.

0:03:160:03:18

It's actually meant to be a female

personification of Britain.

0:03:180:03:21

That's a big word.

0:03:210:03:24

Basically, it's meant to be a female

symbol of the UK which

0:03:240:03:27

is why it's shaped like this.

0:03:270:03:30

A famous British artist

designs it every year.

0:03:300:03:32

Most awards are voted

for by just 1000 people.

0:03:320:03:36

These guys are really

into their music.

0:03:360:03:40

DJs and record labels choose

who they think are the best artists

0:03:400:03:43

but this year, two

categories are up to you.

0:03:430:03:48

That's the British Artist Video

Of The Year and British

0:03:480:03:49

Breakthrough Act.

0:03:490:03:52

And finally, it's a massive

social media event.

0:03:520:03:55

In 2016, when One Direction won

Best British Band, they broke the

0:03:550:03:58

Internet.

0:03:580:04:02

Oops.

0:04:020:04:04

Well, they didn't actually

break it but it was the

0:04:040:04:07

most talked about event on twitter

that year in the UK.

0:04:070:04:10

I wonder what we'll be

talking about this year.

0:04:100:04:12

Hashtag Brits 2018.

0:04:120:04:18

And we will have some of the winners

for you tomorrow morning.

0:04:230:04:28

And it's happened again.

0:04:280:04:29

Britain's Elise Christie

is out after an epic race.

0:04:290:04:32

You might remember she crashed out

in speed skating on the 500

0:04:320:04:35

and 1,500 metre races.

0:04:350:04:36

So what went wrong

this time in the 1000?

0:04:360:04:38

Away they go.

0:04:380:04:39

And Christie goes down before

they reach the very first

0:04:390:04:41

corner.

0:04:410:04:45

The race was restarted

after Elise fell early on.

0:04:450:04:48

Then she had a terrible

start, looked like she

0:04:480:04:50

was barged, and nearly

fell over twice.

0:04:500:04:53

Just about manages

to stay on her feet.

0:04:530:05:00

Through all that, she managed

to get second place and

0:05:000:05:02

thought she had a spot

in the quarterfinals.

0:05:020:05:04

But then...

0:05:040:05:05

I can't believe that

they've awarded her a

0:05:050:05:07

yellow card.

0:05:070:05:09

Disqualified, game over.

0:05:090:05:11

Elise will not go

through to the next round.

0:05:110:05:13

She may be out, but she still

found time to send a

0:05:130:05:16

message to you.

0:05:160:05:20

I'd just like to say thank

you to all the kids that have

0:05:200:05:24

sent me messages, I really

appreciate them saying they are

0:05:240:05:27

inspired by me.

0:05:270:05:28

They have no idea how

much that means to me.

0:05:280:05:31

It's amazing that five year olds,

seven year olds can find me

0:05:310:05:34

inspiring.

0:05:340:05:35

That brings tears

to my eyes, you know.

0:05:350:05:42

We can all learn something from

defeat.

0:05:430:05:45

Next - Doctor Who.

0:05:450:05:47

We have to wait until October

for the new series -

0:05:470:05:49

but here's a little look

at the all new logo.

0:05:490:05:51

The BBC released this

video yesterday -

0:05:510:05:53

showing off the new look.

0:05:530:05:54

The 11th series features

the first female Doctor.

0:05:540:05:56

Jodie Whittaker.

0:05:560:05:59

I like the look
