Great Britain. There have been protests in towns and cities across

:00:08.:00:16.

Britain. Donald Trump says his ban on foreign nationals... They're all

:00:17.:00:22.

calls for his visit to be called off. As a Scottish Muslim family

:00:23.:00:27.

living here in Britain, even for us it's frightening. NEWSREADER: Labour

:00:28.:00:35.

criticised the Conservative Party. An online petition to the visit has

:00:36.:00:38.

attracted more than 1.5 million names. Won't even get an invite to

:00:39.:00:44.

Buckingham Palace and now Trump is there. The president and by Minister

:00:45.:00:57.

-- Prime Minister. We need mates, we need our guys to back us up because

:00:58.:01:01.

the Europeans aren't going to do it. Where do we go to? China? No. What

:01:02.:01:06.

do you say to the viewers at home who are worried about your views and

:01:07.:01:11.

about you becoming the leader of the free world? This was your choice of

:01:12.:01:16.

question? The most important question she said was at the

:01:17.:01:20.

beginning, do you think that Theresa May has criticised you and did so,

:01:21.:01:27.

what did she say? Leave it there. But it was like, this is my

:01:28.:01:32.

platform, I'll get a job if I put the question right. She put too much

:01:33.:01:38.

into the Western which became longer -- cheaper too much into the

:01:39.:01:40.

question. She wants to be an anchor. Father David takes three sermons

:01:41.:01:57.

every Sunday. You know what I had for supper? Fishcakes. Ooh. Francis

:01:58.:02:06.

is a critic and travels the world. I had black truffle risotto and then

:02:07.:02:15.

roast guinea foul and cheeses. It was an ordinary day-to-day meal. All

:02:16.:02:22.

right, that's interesting. There was an astonishing report in the press

:02:23.:02:27.

this week. Have you seen that? No! You're going to go when you're going

:02:28.:02:32.

to go. Atomic scientists have moved the minute hand of the Doomsday

:02:33.:02:36.

clock forward 30 seconds. Not very nice news, is it? No, it isn't.

:02:37.:02:44.

Silly propaganda. How close they feel the world is to total

:02:45.:02:50.

destruction. I'm going to get the first rocket out of here. The

:02:51.:02:54.

metaphorical clock sits at two Andy Hodd minutes to midnight, suggesting

:02:55.:03:00.

humanities cozy -- humanity is closer to destruction than ever. --

:03:01.:03:03.

two minutes before midnight. What is midnight? The world

:03:04.:03:14.

explodes? Exactly, what is going to happen at that point in time? It

:03:15.:03:19.

isn't an actual clock. What do you mean? It isn't on someone's wall.

:03:20.:03:24.

There must be a clock that they have two update. Does it tick and tock?

:03:25.:03:34.

Do they physically move it? It doesn't take and tock. The

:03:35.:03:43.

scientists move the hands up and back. There is no mechanism. It's

:03:44.:03:50.

the shape of a clock for us to try and understand. How big? I haven't

:03:51.:03:56.

got a clue. The year 2000 was supposed to be the end of the world.

:03:57.:04:02.

Wasn't it, yeah? That was a crank. And nothing happened. Justified in

:04:03.:04:11.

people, that's all. That's right. We are two and a half minutes away from

:04:12.:04:19.

it. We were three. From what? Disaster, it is a Doomsday clock! I

:04:20.:04:23.

thought in Geneva there was a clock with all of these boffins studying

:04:24.:04:31.

headlines from the Guardian and deciding to take off a view more

:04:32.:04:34.

seconds. I'm astonished and disgusted. How do I know there's

:04:35.:04:40.

going to be a disaster to put 30 seconds on the clock? That's why we

:04:41.:04:51.

are butchers, I haven't got a clue. These scientists. You have 30

:04:52.:04:57.

seconds left, how do you come up with that? What is the calculation

:04:58.:05:01.

of it? What's the equation? There must be a formula, Trump, plus

:05:02.:05:08.

Putin, divided by North Korea, divided by South Korea and we are

:05:09.:05:14.

two minutes closer. Yeah, I think you should have squared Putin. What

:05:15.:05:19.

you've done, you've divided him. We'll do it again. Trump, divided by

:05:20.:05:27.

Putin, the square root of China. Shouldn't we throw in Theresa May? I

:05:28.:05:31.

don't think she's relevant. No point having her back in. No. Doomsday's

:05:32.:05:39.

coming, two and a half minutes, go, what are you going to do? Two

:05:40.:05:45.

minutes 20 now, come on! Rob a bank. Why would you do that? I don't know!

:05:46.:05:52.

Don't you want to talk to anyone, call anyone? Make love to anyone?

:05:53.:06:02.

No. I can't make love, can I? I can. In two and a half minutes? Do you

:06:03.:06:07.

think if you phone 123 and it was the Doomsday 123 it would say

:06:08.:06:14.

something like, at the third stroke, packed all your bags and go

:06:15.:06:19.

somewhere high, get some shelter? No, wouldn't want to create panic,

:06:20.:06:25.

it would be very upbeat. So it would let everybody die? Thank you for

:06:26.:06:30.

calling the Doomsday hotline, you are ten seconds away from death,

:06:31.:06:34.

your call is important to us. Please hold. This week, newspaper and

:06:35.:06:41.

online articles revelled in an revealing survey suggesting we are

:06:42.:06:45.

happier when we are in the nude. I like clothes and if God didn't mean

:06:46.:06:49.

us to wear clothes, he wouldn't have allowed them to be invented by Adam

:06:50.:06:57.

and Eve. Fig leaves. The public? Yeah. Don't mind being naked but

:06:58.:07:04.

look at the toenails. That's important. Are you comfortable

:07:05.:07:15.

naked? Not really, no. Not after Christmas. Depends, doesn't it. Give

:07:16.:07:25.

it four is and I'll be all right. -- four months. I think it's a load of

:07:26.:07:32.

rubbish. Any bird naked is a bird naked, so why would you be unhappy?

:07:33.:07:37.

There was that naked beach near Bridlington, you know. Yeah row.

:07:38.:07:44.

I have swum in a Swedish lake and it was the coldest swim I've ever had.

:07:45.:07:52.

Without the benefit of a costume? Indeed, yes. There was nobody there,

:07:53.:08:01.

just me, the lake, the woods. God is always there. Indeed, yes. If

:08:02.:08:08.

everybody did, you'd soon get used to it, seeing other people.

:08:09.:08:11.

Surprisingly to get used to, you know. Yeah. Being naked? Yeah, just

:08:12.:08:19.

imagine a world where there were no clothes. Yeah but how would you are

:08:20.:08:26.

carrying shopping bags? With me, I would miss my pockets, you know what

:08:27.:08:30.

I'm saying, you put everything in your pockets. Don't you agree? Tell

:08:31.:08:36.

you what I do with my phone sometimes, I put it up here because

:08:37.:08:40.

it will stick. If you are a bit more is when you get out of the bath, not

:08:41.:08:48.

mucky, but moist, it will stick to my shoulder. Have you done that

:08:49.:08:53.

before? No, I've never stuck my phone to my moist shoulder. Right,

:08:54.:08:59.

it's time to update the dos and don'ts list. Nail technicians

:09:00.:09:06.

Brandon and Tony run a tight ship. They manicure more than 1000 nails a

:09:07.:09:13.

week. The rules we have, right, they come in, like the other day, one of

:09:14.:09:19.

them getting her nails done, two prams. You've got to go hang on,

:09:20.:09:23.

hang on, you can't all come in here. What do you want me to say to them?

:09:24.:09:29.

Get out? Just points to that. Can't stand prams.

:09:30.:09:34.

This week, newspaper reports had unusual images of two world leaders

:09:35.:09:46.

in the midst of forging a very special relationship. She looks

:09:47.:09:51.

pleased. Yeah. It's been a success. I think we're going to get along

:09:52.:09:56.

very well. Interesting, I am a people person and I think you are

:09:57.:10:03.

all so. He calls her the wrong name. Even world leaders need a hand now

:10:04.:10:07.

and again. The president and by Minister classed as they made their

:10:08.:10:10.

way down the steps -- Prime Minister.

:10:11.:10:18.

She has got Bafta phobia. Never heard of it. Our Prime Minister, hot

:10:19.:10:31.

putting it over to America to meet him in the White House, the Oval

:10:32.:10:38.

room, it is a disgrace. Even the President of Mexico has cancelled

:10:39.:10:43.

his visit to Trump. Theresa May over there, it's nice to become the first

:10:44.:10:49.

person. She congratulated him on his stunning win. Oh, yeah. Well, it was

:10:50.:10:56.

stunning, it's none of the world, didn't it? When she came out with

:10:57.:11:02.

the stunning victories, did you see him? Looked like he'd been given a

:11:03.:11:08.

cream cake, know what I mean? Like he had won the pools. Looks like it

:11:09.:11:15.

went very well. The conference, smashed that. They walked out and I

:11:16.:11:23.

don't know if it was intentional but he grabbed her hand. You don't hold

:11:24.:11:28.

hands, you would study her elbow. But you wouldn't hold her hand. The

:11:29.:11:37.

whole world was watching. And I was watching. I think it looked a bit...

:11:38.:11:43.

When you look at the action, it was more of a wrist lock. I don't think

:11:44.:11:48.

she knew he was going to hold onto her hand. I don't think so. The way

:11:49.:11:55.

he's holding her hand. But then again, have you heard, he is scared

:11:56.:11:59.

of sex. Apparently there is a term for this, if you have a fear of

:12:00.:12:10.

something they will give it a term. The grope slope. Apparently there is

:12:11.:12:17.

a severe incline. Wouldn't touch her. He's not going to touch her

:12:18.:12:24.

legs, is he? You hold her hand, that's it, in case she tumbles. In

:12:25.:12:30.

the White House, right, they kept spelling her name wrong, you know.

:12:31.:12:37.

How do you mean? When Donald called her Teresa, they didn't put the

:12:38.:12:42.

letter H in. They misspelled it quite a few times. Oh, right, I

:12:43.:12:50.

thought it was the American accent. Teresa May is a pawn star in

:12:51.:12:55.

America. Don't ask me how I know. The funny thing is I can't wait for

:12:56.:12:59.

Sean Spicer to come out next week and say that they did not spell her

:13:00.:13:03.

name wrong, that is an alternative fact. Here is the actual sheet that

:13:04.:13:10.

shows how it was doctored. He will Pollap be say that they spoke to

:13:11.:13:16.

Theresa May and on reflection she got it wrong, she shouldn't have

:13:17.:13:21.

been spelling it with the H, she spoke with the president on the

:13:22.:13:24.

telephone so this should be brushed under the carpet. Teresa does not

:13:25.:13:33.

have an H in. We got married in 1990. I had hair at that time. And I

:13:34.:13:39.

was thin and that time. Only a size six. Size eight. This couple had

:13:40.:13:45.

been married for 27 years and they run a busy dry cleaners in Glasgow.

:13:46.:13:50.

Hope we not going to see your mother tonight. I'm quite busy tonight.

:13:51.:13:57.

Show our faces. I think we'll just leave it. I'm waiting for the phone

:13:58.:14:06.

to go. Your mother then. Let it go, I'm not bothered too much, I'll

:14:07.:14:10.

handle the call, it's fine. Are you sure you can handle that? Don't you

:14:11.:14:20.

worry about that. Apparently it is oestrogen. There was an illuminating

:14:21.:14:23.

report in the newspapers this week suggesting that experts now have the

:14:24.:14:27.

proof that women are better at multitasking Paire men. -- than men.

:14:28.:14:39.

A professor once said, why can't a woman be more like a man? We've all

:14:40.:14:41.

ask that. Only women can do it, as I have been

:14:42.:14:51.

told for many years, only women can do it. Yes. You have never

:14:52.:14:57.

multitasked in your life, you think one thing at a time, you have a one

:14:58.:15:04.

track brain. No, I can drive the Rolls-Royce and also think very

:15:05.:15:06.

unpleasant things about the other drivers on the road.

:15:07.:15:12.

Look at me, for example, I am doing five or six things. At the same

:15:13.:15:18.

time. I have a sharp eye watching those girls in here and watching the

:15:19.:15:21.

staff members and the girls at the back. And picking out people's

:15:22.:15:27.

mistakes, you are good at that. My mum always says to me, you either

:15:28.:15:33.

watched the TV or you are on the phone, you cannot do both. I say, I

:15:34.:15:38.

am. No, it is won or the other. Then she goes on the phone and watches

:15:39.:15:43.

the telly and she says, I am watching that.

:15:44.:15:46.

She is a woman and can do both. When women are in Labour, they have to

:15:47.:15:50.

talk to their husbands, nine times out of ten they swear at their

:15:51.:15:54.

husbands, they talk to the nurses and they swear. That is

:15:55.:15:59.

multitasking. It isn't multitasking! Of course it is. And who takes the

:16:00.:16:05.

sweat from your brow? Just don't go that! What other man would get a

:16:06.:16:10.

sanitary towel to mop the woman's brow, only you! You have to get it

:16:11.:16:18.

how all the mop your brow, that was the only thing that was there!

:16:19.:16:28.

48 plus 32. 70. Yes, you still paused, it is bang, bang, bang. No,

:16:29.:16:34.

I am not Carol Vorderman! A woman would have had that built by now.

:16:35.:16:42.

No, she would not. Trump would have me on board. 252 plus 102. 354. Yes!

:16:43.:16:55.

Why would you have done that? If you give me a tenor in change. Of

:16:56.:17:01.

course I can love. One strange story in the papers and

:17:02.:17:07.

online this week reported that US scientists have proven that human

:17:08.:17:11.

cells can be grown within a pig. Do you know what they are doing,

:17:12.:17:15.

they are playing God. Moving one step closer to growing organs for

:17:16.:17:20.

transplant. Good idea, isn't it? The complicated

:17:21.:17:26.

procedure involves injecting human stem cells into pig embryos.

:17:27.:17:30.

Oh, dear, I don't agree with all that. Neither do I.

:17:31.:17:37.

Would you say you were to take the heart of a pig if you needed one? I

:17:38.:17:42.

don't think so. Even if it was life or death? I wouldn't do it. If you

:17:43.:17:47.

needed a transplant, you would not care where it came from, as long as

:17:48.:17:52.

you did not turn into a pig in the fullness of time.

:17:53.:17:56.

You know when you become a donor, your DNA has to match with the

:17:57.:18:03.

person you give it to. Hopefully, if they find one, yes. What happens if

:18:04.:18:08.

they do not find one? That goes to waste. No, they are breeding the

:18:09.:18:14.

pics for it. So you need a heart transplant and I am sure you would

:18:15.:18:19.

be happy to take one from a little pig. It depends what side of the

:18:20.:18:23.

coin you are on. I am not bothered, my mum says I need a trough to eat

:18:24.:18:30.

anyway. Put your dominoes down! If somebody is waiting for the heart

:18:31.:18:37.

of a pig, human heart. Out of a pig's body. Presuming it works and

:18:38.:18:41.

they take that from the pig and put it into the human, what happens to

:18:42.:18:45.

the pig that is left with the human organs inside, what happens to the

:18:46.:18:51.

pig? It is dead! Ken did have this big operation. You

:18:52.:19:01.

could have one from an animal or mechanical. He chose the animal, a

:19:02.:19:09.

valve. It was from a bull. Was it? I didn't know they did that, Sheila.

:19:10.:19:13.

Yes. I would ask. Detail and some basic

:19:14.:19:20.

special figures on the success of these pig's Hearts, who survived,

:19:21.:19:24.

how long and what are the chances? Know what I mean? Let's be honest,

:19:25.:19:29.

you would not say anything because if you need a new major organ, you

:19:30.:19:34.

are not in a good way. When they say, we need to give you a heart

:19:35.:19:40.

from a pig, you do not say, I need to check this. I will have to give

:19:41.:19:46.

some consideration to it. You cannot be that considerate, you have got

:19:47.:19:49.

hours to live! Tell you what, it is about time they

:19:50.:19:57.

made a statue for Princess Diana. This week, Princess Diana was all

:19:58.:20:01.

over the press and online, 20 years after her death.

:20:02.:20:05.

NEWSREADER: Prince William and Prince Harry have announced plans to

:20:06.:20:09.

write a statue of their mother. The main memorial has been a statue

:20:10.:20:14.

in Hyde Park in London. Diana's sister will be on the body

:20:15.:20:19.

commissioning and raising funds for the statue.

:20:20.:20:24.

Would you go to visit it elliptically? You have two to pay

:20:25.:20:27.

your respects. Is a new have to, I haven't been to

:20:28.:20:32.

be other things, the water park, she had done. -- I say that you have

:20:33.:20:35.

two. If they can have one for sale, they

:20:36.:20:41.

can have for her. Absolutely. I hope it will be better than they

:20:42.:20:51.

have got right now. Have you seen that fountain? That is a load of...

:20:52.:20:57.

What an insult. What an insult to such a lovely woman. People go to it

:20:58.:21:02.

and you see them soaking their feet. It doesn't matter, they are soaking

:21:03.:21:08.

their feet and reflecting and thinking of Diana.

:21:09.:21:11.

Michael Jackson had one, that didn't go down well and they moved it to

:21:12.:21:17.

end museum. It looked nothing like him. What if it goes wrong and she

:21:18.:21:22.

looks like instead of Princess Diana, she looks like... Camilla!

:21:23.:21:29.

Yes! That don't represent Diana. It is

:21:30.:21:32.

just a waste of money to me. It is not just to... You can turn up to

:21:33.:21:38.

see this water feature, all the people with their feet, and you

:21:39.:21:41.

think, that reminds me of Lady Diana. You know it looks nothing

:21:42.:21:46.

like her but there has got to be some kind of... This is going to be

:21:47.:21:52.

a tribute to Theresa May one and all the rest of it, please soak your

:21:53.:22:00.

feet. -- lady Di. You were looking at me? Yes, I think

:22:01.:22:06.

it is so wrong. Christina and Winifred, devout

:22:07.:22:08.

Christians who volunteer at the West Indian community centre in Leeds.

:22:09.:22:15.

When I go to keep fit and do my aerobics, they do not play gospel

:22:16.:22:21.

music. I like reggae. Yes, I like reggae music. No, you've gone too

:22:22.:22:27.

far and you know that! No! You need to have a word with your pastor.

:22:28.:22:37.

That is completely wrong! Sheila, that always looks nice. Yes,

:22:38.:22:42.

yes. This week, President Trump signed

:22:43.:22:47.

Executive orders he said would control the flow of order of people

:22:48.:22:52.

coming into America. He said work would begin on building the wall

:22:53.:22:59.

with Mexico first. NEWSREADER: Enrique Pena Nieto said

:23:00.:23:02.

he would not but the bill. You will be able to see the wall if

:23:03.:23:07.

you live in Texas in your back garden.

:23:08.:23:09.

The President of Mexico and myself have agreed to cancel our planned

:23:10.:23:13.

meeting scheduled for next week. Then he declared a ban on people

:23:14.:23:17.

coming from seven predominantly Muslim countries.

:23:18.:23:22.

NEWSREADER: Another sweeping change, a halt on visas for people from

:23:23.:23:26.

seven mainly Muslim countries. Look at that, Trump's plan takes

:23:27.:23:32.

effect. This actually, strangely, is what

:23:33.:23:37.

democracy is about. People say, if you vote for me and I am elected, I

:23:38.:23:42.

will do an and B and C. He has been elected and he is doing that, this

:23:43.:23:45.

is democracy. If you have not been in office for a

:23:46.:23:50.

week and you are making an Executive decision on something so big, you

:23:51.:23:54.

are dangerous. Of course he is dangerous.

:23:55.:23:59.

Ironically, Donald Trump is doing what the Brexit based their campaign

:24:00.:24:11.

on. Controls on borders. He is doing what the Brexiteer is wanted is to

:24:12.:24:15.

happen, tighter controls of the border. At the moment, Britain would

:24:16.:24:20.

not be able to do that. Imagine me getting a wall done and

:24:21.:24:23.

asking you to pay for it. I would not pay a penny. I know, that is

:24:24.:24:30.

what the Mexicans are going to do. One guy says, pay up. He says, no.

:24:31.:24:35.

He says, well, I will do this to you. It is like a stand-off. A

:24:36.:24:40.

Mexican stand-off! Who is going to blink?

:24:41.:24:45.

It is going to be a long ball, let's face it. 1,000 miles. 1,000 mile

:24:46.:24:56.

long, who knows how how it is going to go to stop them going over it.

:24:57.:25:00.

Who are they going to give the job too? That is ridiculous, it will not

:25:01.:25:05.

be bricks, Nick. What is it going to be, it isn't going to be Lego! How

:25:06.:25:11.

many people went to our college to do bricklaying? Hundreds. We are a

:25:12.:25:20.

town of expert bricklayers. We want to keep them bricklayers here

:25:21.:25:22.

because when Sturgeon gets a way, we will have to build our own!

:25:23.:25:29.

You have seen the great Wall? That was done thousands of years ago and

:25:30.:25:33.

it stretches for miles, longer than the one he wants built. Ask them.

:25:34.:25:37.

Say, you have got a great Wall, build a great Wall over here. They

:25:38.:25:42.

might do. The people who built that probably will be dead now.

:25:43.:25:49.

What does he want? I think he just wants Americans. He has banned

:25:50.:25:53.

Syrian refugees coming to the United States of America. He says, you

:25:54.:25:57.

can't come here, sorry. You are not allowed in. Where are they coming

:25:58.:26:03.

from anyway? Syria, where else? They want a wall with Mexican -- Sako,

:26:04.:26:08.

the Canadians want a wall to keep him in! -- Sako.

:26:09.:26:17.

I think he looks so good. Look at them.

:26:18.:26:22.

This week, the papers and internet were awash with joyful images of two

:26:23.:26:27.

proud looking recipients -- recipients of the Queen's honours.

:26:28.:26:32.

It is good they are flying the Northern Flag. Doing it for

:26:33.:26:36.

Newcastle. NEWSREADER: the TV duo are heading

:26:43.:26:45.

:26:49.:27:00.

you why, they really funny. And you know what I admire about them? They

:27:01.:27:03.

have been together such a long time. Very young. And they are still close

:27:04.:27:09.

and they are funny. They are funny. They must be doing a good job, to

:27:10.:27:16.

What is the order of the British Empire, you have got me wondering,

:27:59.:28:03.

what does it really mean? So you have got order, different

:28:04.:28:09.

orders they sit in. So you have got a member of the British Empire.

:28:10.:28:17.

So I could have said B. Officer of the British Empire, commander and a

:28:18.:28:23.

night. You understand? All of those titles sit within an order. It could

:28:24.:28:28.

be order of the chivalry, different orders. It is confusing. It's

:28:29.:28:32.

boring! What have you been up to?

:28:33.:28:56.

Something grubby? I'm Dame Judi Dench, I'm

:28:57.:28:59.

a national treasure! Why settle for a German Europe when

:29:00.:29:03.

you could have a Scottish world?
