Tonight at 10pm -

0:00:060:00:08

The former

football coach Barry Bennell,

0:00:080:00:09

is convicted of more than 30 counts

of child abuse.

0:00:090:00:14

Bennell had denied dozens

of offences involving 11 boys,

0:00:140:00:18

one of whom claimed to have been

abused on more than ten

0:00:180:00:21

separate occasions.

0:00:210:00:22

During the trial, witnesses

described how Bennell had exercised

0:00:220:00:25

a power hold over them,

as ambitious young players.

0:00:250:00:28

The jury asked for more time

to consider seven others counts,

0:00:280:00:32

we'll have the latest

from Liverpool Crown Court.

0:00:320:00:34

Also tonight -

0:00:340:00:36

Jacob Zuma is formally told

by his own party, to stand down,

0:00:360:00:40

as president of South Africa,

following allegations of corruption.

0:00:400:00:43

Lung cancer patients, including many

who have never smoked,

0:00:430:00:45

say it's time to devote far more

resources to research.

0:00:450:00:50

It felt like I was being punished

for a crime I hadn't committed.

0:00:500:00:54

I've never smoked.

0:00:540:00:57

In fact, I used to be

the butt of jokes at school

0:00:570:01:00

because I wouldn't.

0:01:000:01:06

Sky and BT Sport pay over

£4.5 billion for football

0:01:060:01:09

rights, but is it as much

as the Premier League

0:01:090:01:11

had been expecting?

0:01:110:01:15

COMMENTATOR:

Christie is out of it

again!

0:01:150:01:19

And, at the Winter Olympics,

the moment when Britain's

0:01:190:01:21

Elise Christie crashed,

on the last lap, of the women's

0:01:210:01:23

speed skating final.

0:01:230:01:24

And coming up on

Sportsday on BBC News:

0:01:240:01:26

Could Spurs recover from a terrible

start in the Champions League

0:01:260:01:29

knockout stages against Italian

giants Juventus in Turin?

0:01:290:01:36

Good evening.

0:01:500:01:55

The former football coach,

Barry Bennell, has been found

0:01:550:01:58

guilty of multiple sex offences

against young boys in the 1980s.

0:01:580:02:03

Bennell had denied 48 charges,

including indecent assault

0:02:030:02:05

and serious sexual assaults,

but the jury convicted him

0:02:050:02:08

on dozens of counts,

and asked for more time

0:02:080:02:10

to consider seven others.

0:02:100:02:14

During the trial, prosecutors

described him as a predatory

0:02:140:02:16

paedophile who molested young boys

on an 'industrial scale'.

0:02:160:02:19

Our correspondent Danny Savage

is at Liverpool Crown Court tonight.

0:02:190:02:27

The jury in this case listened to

evidence for five weeks in total.

0:02:270:02:32

They went out to consider their

verdicts last Thursday and came back

0:02:320:02:35

this afternoon with the majority of

their verdicts. Barry Bennell, the

0:02:350:02:41

football coach who abused his

position to molesting young boys,

0:02:410:02:44

listened on via a video link and

shook his head and muttered as those

0:02:440:02:48

guilty verdicts were returned with

some of his victims in court

0:02:480:02:52

watching on.

0:02:520:02:54

He was the charismatic coach

who convinced the parents

0:02:540:02:57

of promising young footballers that

staying at his house

0:02:570:03:00

was all part of the game.

0:03:000:03:01

We really work the kids,

they're learning all the time,

0:03:010:03:06

and we do a lot of talking

to them as well...

0:03:060:03:10

But in the words of the prosecution,

Barry Bennell was a child molester

0:03:100:03:13

on an industrial scale.

0:03:130:03:14

Now a shadow of his former self,

the 64-year-old was today convicted

0:03:140:03:18

of sexually assaulting boys aged

between eight and 15.

0:03:180:03:23

He was found guilty

of assaulting ten of the 11 boys

0:03:230:03:26

this trial centred on.

0:03:260:03:30

He was the gatekeeper

to a dream in football,

0:03:300:03:36

He was the gatekeeper

to a dream world in football,

0:03:360:03:39

but his victims had to silently

suffer horrific abuse.

0:03:390:03:41

He assaulted some of

the boys at his homes,

0:03:410:03:43

one of which was in this

Derbyshire village.

0:03:430:03:45

He had arcade games and exotic pets,

and always had a reason

0:03:450:03:48

for the youngsters to stay over.

0:03:480:03:49

His victims were associated

with Crewe and Manchester City,

0:03:490:03:52

where he was involved

in the junior setups.

0:03:520:03:56

He was said to have been treated

like God at Manchester

0:03:560:03:59

City's Maine Road ground.

0:03:590:04:02

In court, it was said Bennell

had groomed the parents

0:04:020:04:05

of the complainants so he could

carry on the abuse.

0:04:050:04:09

He offered no evidence

in his defence, and his barrister

0:04:090:04:12

accused some of the men,

who were boys at the time,

0:04:120:04:15

of inventing stories about him

and jumping on the bandwagon.

0:04:150:04:17

Bennell has previously

received jail sentences

0:04:170:04:19

in the United States,

and here in the UK,

0:04:190:04:21

after being convicted

of similar offences.

0:04:210:04:28

This afternoon, as throughout his

trial, this serial child molester

0:04:280:04:31

appeared via video link.

0:04:310:04:32

He shook his head as the guilty

verdicts were returned.

0:04:320:04:34

Some of his victims

had come to watch.

0:04:340:04:37

Hearing finally that the man

who abused them when they were

0:04:370:04:40

little boys has been convicted.

0:04:400:04:45

So, what happened today is that he

was found guilty of 36 of the

0:04:450:04:48

charges and the jury is still

considering seven others. So the

0:04:480:04:52

judge has told them to go away and

continue their deliberations

0:04:520:04:56

tomorrow, although he will accept a

majority verdict on those seven

0:04:560:05:01

outstanding cases. This trial is not

finished yet, the jury must still go

0:05:010:05:04

through some deliberations on those

of the charges and that will be

0:05:040:05:06

starting from tomorrow morning.

Danny Savage, many thanks, our

0:05:060:05:11

correspondent at Liverpool Crown

Court.

0:05:110:05:15

In South Africa, the ruling

African National Congress has asked

0:05:150:05:17

President Jacob Zuma to resign.

0:05:170:05:18

The ANC says he's agreed to stand

down, but only after a transition

0:05:180:05:21

period of three to six months,

which the party says

0:05:210:05:24

is unacceptable.

0:05:240:05:25

Mr Zuma has come under

increasing pressure to resign,

0:05:250:05:27

following a series

of corruption scandals.

0:05:270:05:35

Our Africa editor Fergal Keane sent

this report from Johannesburg.

0:05:350:05:37

Not quite the Night of The Long

Knives but still the party moving

0:05:370:05:43

definitively to be rid

of a defiant President.

0:05:430:05:45

Late last night the convoy

of the ANC leader Cyril

0:05:450:05:50

Ramaphosa coming to tell his

executive that after

0:05:500:05:54

a short meeting Jacob

Zuma was refusing to

0:05:540:05:56

resign voluntarily.

0:05:560:05:57

With the media kept at bay the party

debated what to do next.

0:05:570:06:00

It's half-past midnight and they're

still talking in there.

0:06:000:06:02

More than ten hours

after they started.

0:06:020:06:08

Now, there's a sense

that the whole future of the ANC,

0:06:080:06:11

and indeed of this country,

hinges on what happens now.

0:06:110:06:16

This afternoon in Johannesburg

after a meeting that eventually ran

0:06:160:06:23

for 13 hours,

the ANC revealed that its

0:06:230:06:25

patience was exhausted.

0:06:250:06:26

In its wisdom the NEC

decided as follows -

0:06:260:06:32

One, to recall Jacob Zuma.

0:06:320:06:37

Recalled, in other words

they were calling on

0:06:370:06:39

Jacob Zuma to resign.

0:06:390:06:41

And if he doesn't it's

likely they'll force

0:06:410:06:47

him out through a motion of no

confidence in parliament.

0:06:470:06:49

But it's potentially risky.

0:06:490:06:50

The President still has many

supporters in the party.

0:06:500:06:53

Do you worry that this

is going to split the ANC,

0:06:530:06:55

divide the movement irreparably?

0:06:550:06:56

I don't know whether

the ANC will split.

0:06:560:06:58

But we are leaders,

we belong to branches and

0:06:580:07:01

we are appealing to our structures

to understand that the National

0:07:010:07:05

Executive Committee

has taken decisions.

0:07:050:07:09

So, as the ANC officials believe

they have now thrown down a

0:07:090:07:12

gauntlet to President Jacob Zuma.

0:07:120:07:14

They've given him time,

lots of time, they say,

0:07:140:07:16

to respond to their demand

that he step down.

0:07:160:07:18

It's now up to him.

0:07:180:07:26

Nobody could accuse

the ANC of rushing to

0:07:260:07:28

remove Jacob Zuma.

0:07:280:07:30

The leadership did

nothing while corruption

0:07:300:07:32

scandals multiplied

during nine years of his rule.

0:07:320:07:35

An Indian immigrant

family, the Guptas, was

0:07:350:07:37

allowed to purchase vital national

enterprises, employing the

0:07:370:07:40

President's son in what became

known as state capture.

0:07:400:07:44

Now the opposition believes

President Zuma no longer

0:07:440:07:46

cares about dividing

his party or country.

0:07:460:07:48

Now he's just defiant.

0:07:480:07:49

You know, these are

the last kicks of a

0:07:490:07:51

dying horse.

0:07:510:07:52

But it becomes dangerous.

0:07:520:07:54

He doesn't care.

0:07:540:07:56

He's not even scared of impeachment.

0:07:560:07:58

So, he is prepared

to lose everything.

0:07:580:08:02

Jacob Zuma has lived and ruled

in the shadow of greatness.

0:08:020:08:06

However it comes about,

he will leave office a

0:08:060:08:08

humiliated figure.

0:08:080:08:16

Well, tonight the finance minister,

a man who was formerly a close ally

0:08:160:08:21

of Jacob Zuma has come out and said

he expects the President to do the

0:08:210:08:26

right thing and step down and it's

significant that in the last 24

0:08:260:08:30

hours no cabinet ministers have come

out in support of Jacob Zuma. It

0:08:300:08:33

matters greatly that the ANC doesn't

descend into factional fighting over

0:08:330:08:36

this because that would leave the

new President, Cyril Ramaphosa, the

0:08:360:08:41

new leader of the organisation,

trying to rescue this country's

0:08:410:08:43

shattered economy and root out the

deep corruption, while at the same

0:08:430:08:48

time trying to contain struggles in

his own ranks.

0:08:480:08:53

Fergal, thank you once again, Africa

editor Fergal Keane with the latest

0:08:530:08:58

on the presidential story in South

Africa.

0:08:580:09:00

Boris Johnson, in a major speech

tomorrow, is expected to reach out

0:09:000:09:03

to those who still have deep

misgivings about Brexit,

0:09:030:09:06

and to underline what he says

are the potential benefits

0:09:060:09:08

of leaving the European Union.

0:09:080:09:09

The Foreign Secretary will say that

he's detected a deepening

0:09:090:09:12

of the anger in relation to Brexit.

0:09:120:09:17

Our political correspondent

Ben Wright is at Westminster.

0:09:170:09:21

Is this some kind of admission that

the Government still has a lot of

0:09:210:09:24

work to do to unite people?

Yes,

it's a call for national unity a

0:09:240:09:30

long time after the referendum in a

very conciliatory tone of the sort I

0:09:300:09:33

don't think we have heard very much

from Cabinet ministers. Boris

0:09:330:09:39

Johnson will use his Valentine's Day

speech to try and woo despairing

0:09:390:09:42

Remain voters who feel Brexit is a

disaster and he's written a piece in

0:09:420:09:51

tomorrow's Sun along those lines.

He's one of the leading figures of

0:09:510:09:54

Bo-lieve campaign, or he was, and he

says he understands the grief and

0:09:540:09:57

alienation of our Brexit many people

feel and he detects a hardening of

0:09:570:10:00

the anger. He says it's not good

enough to say to the 48% who voted

0:10:000:10:06

Remain get over it for survey says

concerns and excite is need to be

0:10:060:10:11

listened to. He says it would be a

disastrous mistake to try and stop

0:10:110:10:14

Brexit and cause Britain's departure

from the EU the great project of

0:10:140:10:21

age. The tone of this is really

interesting. I think for people who

0:10:210:10:24

are sceptical about Brexit, maybe

people watching on from the EU, it's

0:10:240:10:28

not the tone, it's the conduct of Mr

Johnson's speech and other

0:10:280:10:33

ministers' speeches in the next few

weeks that they will judge this

0:10:330:10:37

speech by, what would would have us

about how divided Cabinet plans to

0:10:370:10:40

get the Brexit deal that No 10

wants.

Ben Wright, thank you, the

0:10:400:10:45

latest from Westminster.

0:10:450:10:47

The Government has unveiled

an online tool, powered

0:10:470:10:50

by artificial intelligence,

that it says can accurately detect

0:10:500:10:52

jihadist content and stop

it from being viewed.

0:10:520:10:54

The Home Secretary, Amber Rudd,

says she wouldn't rule out bringing

0:10:540:10:57

in a law that would force technology

companies to use it.

0:10:570:11:05

But with extremist propaganda

from so-called Islamic State

0:11:050:11:07

appearing on more than 400 platforms

last year, there are concerns that

0:11:070:11:10

such groups will simply

adapt their methods

0:11:100:11:11

to reach new audiences.

0:11:110:11:12

Our media editor, Amol

Rajan, has the story.

0:11:120:11:18

Militaristic, cinematic and often

shot with high-level production

0:11:180:11:20

values, these propaganda videos

for the so-called Islamic State

0:11:200:11:22

espouse terror and hatred.

0:11:220:11:29

They're also easy to find

on the internet right now.

0:11:290:11:32

So what we have here are two videos,

one of which is extremist content,

0:11:320:11:35

the other which is perfectly

legitimate news coverage.

0:11:350:11:38

Now an artificial intelligence firm

in London has used Home Office money

0:11:380:11:41

to target such extremist content.

0:11:410:11:45

The creators claim the technology,

which is obviously secret,

0:11:450:11:49

can spot 94% of IS content online

with an accuracy of 99.995%.

0:11:490:11:53

The technology distinguishes

between news and extremism

0:11:530:11:55

and flags up examples,

such as the one on the right,

0:11:550:11:59

with a high probability

of being extremist content,

0:11:590:12:01

to be vetted by a human.

0:12:010:12:05

What we are looking to do is to try

and remove this content

0:12:050:12:08

from the public web.

0:12:080:12:09

If it requires somebody to have ten

passwords and an incredibly

0:12:090:12:15

complicated Tor browser before

they can get access to content,

0:12:150:12:17

we see that as a win.

0:12:170:12:20

It means that it can't just be

shared between friends on, like,

0:12:200:12:23

their mobile phones.

0:12:230:12:24

While attention is focused

on big firms like Twitter,

0:12:240:12:26

Google and Facebook,

crucially, this technology

0:12:260:12:29

will benefit smaller platforms,

who will have free use of it.

0:12:290:12:32

Islamic State supporters used over

400 unique platforms last year,

0:12:320:12:35

145 of them for the first time.

0:12:350:12:39

Like other forms of modern media,

terrorist propaganda

0:12:390:12:43

has now shifted online.

0:12:430:12:46

What's so striking about this

new tool is both that it's funded

0:12:460:12:50

by government rather than technology

firms, and that it's powered

0:12:500:12:52

by artificial intelligence.

0:12:520:12:54

In other words, it's an admission

that machines rather than manpower

0:12:540:12:56

will be most effective at finding

and removing extremist

0:12:560:12:59

material online.

0:12:590:13:03

One former jihadist, who now works

in counter-radicalisation,

0:13:030:13:06

argues that terrorists will always

adapt their methods to find

0:13:060:13:08

new audiences and the platforms need

to be willing to take action.

0:13:080:13:12

The big players in this area

are taking a lot of action,

0:13:120:13:18

but what we've found is that it's

the smaller companies who aren't

0:13:180:13:21

necessarily prepared to play

ball with government,

0:13:210:13:23

sometimes because they're

suspicious of government,

0:13:230:13:24

sometimes because they simply don't

regard it as being part

0:13:240:13:27

of their business model.

0:13:270:13:28

It's not yet clear how widely

the technology will be taken up,

0:13:280:13:30

but the Government says its instinct

is to collaborate with industry.

0:13:300:13:33

We're not going to rule out

taking legislative action

0:13:330:13:37

if we need to do it,

but I remain convinced that the best

0:13:370:13:40

way to take real action,

to have the best outcomes,

0:13:400:13:43

is to have an industry-led form,

like the one we've got.

0:13:430:13:46

Your algorithms are doing that

grooming and that radicalisation.

0:13:460:13:50

It's a war of attrition,

but the chair of the Home Affairs

0:13:500:13:53

Select Committee says the onus

is still on the biggest

0:13:530:13:55

digital companies.

0:13:550:13:57

I think it's imperative on the tech

giants, on all of these companies,

0:13:570:14:02

to do more to operate swiftly

to remove illegal material.

0:14:020:14:06

If they don't, there has to be some

form of penalty on them

0:14:060:14:09

for not doing this because,

in the end, this is

0:14:090:14:11

about illegal material.

0:14:110:14:12

It's important to be

realistic about the costs

0:14:120:14:14

and consequences of the open web.

0:14:140:14:18

While technology and government

pressure can reduce harm,

0:14:180:14:20

the fight against digital extremism

is a war without end.

0:14:230:14:26

Lung cancer claims more lives

in the UK than any other form

0:14:280:14:30

of cancer, and its victims include

many who have never smoked.

0:14:300:14:34

Despite the fact that it's the UK's

biggest cancer killer,

0:14:340:14:38

it still receives relatively

little research funding.

0:14:380:14:41

Around 35,000 people

die from lung cancer

0:14:410:14:48

in the UK every year,

and around 44,000 new

0:14:480:14:50

cases are diagnosed.

0:14:500:14:58

But just £708 is spent in the UK per

person who dies from lung cancer.

0:15:000:15:07

A fifth of that spent on breast

cancer and a tenth of the amount

0:15:070:15:10

on leukaemia research.

0:15:100:15:11

Our legal affairs correspondent,

Clive Coleman whose sister Sarah

0:15:110:15:13

recently died of lung cancer,

has been finding out more

0:15:130:15:15

about the non-smokers

who are affected, why it attracts

0:15:150:15:18

less research funding

than other cancers.

0:15:180:15:19

When you're first diagnosed

with cancer, it's really scary

0:15:190:15:21

and I was very scared.

0:15:210:15:22

I was diagnosed with non-small cell

lung cancer in August 2015.

0:15:220:15:30

This is my younger sister, Sarah,

she died of lung cancer in December,

0:15:300:15:33

two years after being diagnosed.

0:15:330:15:36

In the months before her death,

she made this film

0:15:360:15:38

about her condition.

0:15:380:15:41

Before she got the illness,

I knew relatively little about it.

0:15:410:15:47

I suppose I shared the common view

that it was a smoker's disease.

0:15:470:15:54

I had no idea how many healthy,

non-smokers got it or that in the UK

0:15:540:15:57

it kills more than breast,

prostate and pancreatic

0:15:570:15:59

cancer put together.

0:15:590:16:00

Keep into the sides, that's it.

0:16:000:16:02

Safely.

0:16:020:16:06

Like my sister, Joanne Marshall has

never smoked, but has stage 4 lung

0:16:060:16:09

cancer because of a non-inherited

fault in her genes.

0:16:090:16:12

She's being treated

with targeted drug therapies.

0:16:120:16:15

They provide a very

effective stay of execution.

0:16:150:16:21

So for me, for example,

I've been on a targeted

0:16:210:16:29

therapy for about a year,

which meant that I could live,

0:16:290:16:32

essentially, a normal life.

0:16:320:16:33

I was very active,

I could breathe properly.

0:16:330:16:41

But they don't last forever,

that's the problem, cancer tends

0:16:420:16:45

to be one step ahead.

0:16:450:16:46

The children help

just by being here.

0:16:460:16:49

I mean, they're really doing

everything they can.

0:16:490:16:51

My husband...

0:16:510:16:57

His life has completely changed

and it's not what I wanted for him.

0:16:570:17:00

But, you know...

0:17:000:17:05

If we get through this,

we'll be so strong.

0:17:050:17:07

Scientists don't know why seemingly

more and more healthy non-smokers

0:17:070:17:12

are getting lung cancer,

but visiting Joanna and her family,

0:17:120:17:19

I had learned that the disease kills

98 people each day in the UK.

0:17:190:17:27

14% of those who get it have

never smoked and yet,

0:17:300:17:33

in terms of research funding,

it receives a small fraction

0:17:330:17:35

of the money spent on breast

or testicular cancer or leukaemia.

0:17:350:17:38

It's a massive problem

because these people

0:17:380:17:40

who are diagnosed with lung cancer,

who've never smoked,

0:17:400:17:43

are really quite angry that it's

assumed that they have smoked

0:17:430:17:51

and that they have self-inflicted

this cancer upon them,

0:17:540:17:56

when clearly they haven't.

0:17:560:17:58

Because of the way that the disease

behaves and that these people

0:17:580:18:01

are not expected to be diagnosed

with cancer, they're not high risk,

0:18:010:18:04

they're usually diagnosed at a later

stage and therefore treatment can

0:18:040:18:06

often not be curative,

which is a complete

0:18:060:18:08

and utter disaster for them.

0:18:080:18:10

Lung cancer remains the ugly,

poor relation of the cancer family,

0:18:100:18:16

it doesn't discriminate

between smokers and non-smokers

0:18:160:18:19

and there'll be many more cases,

like my sister's, before

0:18:190:18:26

a long-term treatment's found.

0:18:260:18:27

Clive Coleman, BBC News.

0:18:270:18:31

A parliamentary committee has taken

the unusual step of using its powers

0:18:310:18:34

to force the financial regulator

to hand over a report

0:18:340:18:36

into the mistreatment

of business customers by RBS.

0:18:360:18:40

The Financial Conduct Authority had

said it could take weeks or months

0:18:400:18:44

to publish the report,

which found that mistreatment

0:18:440:18:48

of business customers by the RBS

Global Restructuring Group,

0:18:480:18:51

was widespread and systematic,

as our economics correspondent,

0:18:510:18:53

Andy Verity, explains.

0:18:530:19:01

Glenn eggels the golf venue in 2007

RBS NatWest promised to lend the

0:19:010:19:06

property developer enough money to

buy two plots of land here and

0:19:060:19:09

develop them into luxury homes. But

then in 2008 the bank moved Derek

0:19:090:19:15

into what became the RBS Global

Restructuring Group, within months

0:19:150:19:19

the bank broke its promise. His

business was wrecked and the home he

0:19:190:19:23

was lived in on this street was

lost. He fought back, acting as his

0:19:230:19:27

own lawyer and won in the Supreme

Court, but it took well over a year

0:19:270:19:31

for the bank to compensate him.

It

was unfair. Actions against me and

0:19:310:19:37

the actions against lots of other

people. That really leads me back to

0:19:370:19:43

where is the accountability?

In 2013

the Financial Conduct Authority

0:19:430:19:47

commissioned a report which found

inappropriate treatment was

0:19:470:19:51

widespread and systematic. It

published a summary of the findings

0:19:510:19:55

but MPs have been pressing the

reluctant regulator to publish it in

0:19:550:19:58

full.

I'm going to write to you,

probably in the next couple of days,

0:19:580:20:02

with a clear request to publish and

a time scale within which to

0:20:020:20:07

publish. Otherwise it will be the

case that the Financial Conduct

0:20:070:20:10

Authority finds events overtake him.

A copy of the full report was

0:20:100:20:14

published on the internet. What it

contains are phrases that neither

0:20:140:20:18

the bank nor the regulator wanted

the public to see including phrases

0:20:180:20:24

like, "rope, sometimes you need to

let customers hang themselves."

0:20:240:20:29

Another one, "GRG management was

aware or should have been aware. We

0:20:290:20:32

view these issues as part of an

intentional or coordinated strategy.

0:20:320:20:37

It was this strategy that was the

underlying cause of the poor

0:20:370:20:40

treatment." The businessmen who

first accused the bank of

0:20:400:20:44

mistreating customers say those

behind the scandal aren't being held

0:20:440:20:47

accountable.

The whole FCA process

has taken far too long. Over four

0:20:470:20:52

years is ridiculous. But what's

probably worse than that is the way

0:20:520:20:58

they seem to have worked hand in

glove with RBS and negotiated

0:20:580:21:03

behind-the-scenes with RBS about

what would be in the report. To the

0:21:030:21:07

point where the regulators are

saying, I'm not sure we want to

0:21:070:21:12

publish this yet because RBS might

sue us. Who is regulating who.

0:21:120:21:16

Neither the bank nor the regulator

will give an interview but neither

0:21:160:21:22

is objecting to publication. They

are being forced to hand over a

0:21:220:21:26

unredacted copy by Friday. Andy

Verity, BBC News.

0:21:260:21:35

A brief look at some

of the day's other news stories.

0:21:350:21:37

Israeli police say there is enough

evidence to indict the Prime

0:21:370:21:40

Minister Benjamin Netanyahu

for bribery, fraud and breach

0:21:400:21:42

of trust in two separate cases.

0:21:420:21:43

They relate to claims he received

luxury gifts in exchange

0:21:430:21:45

for political favours and asked

the publisher of a newspaper

0:21:450:21:48

for favourable coverage in return

for reigning in a rival publication.

0:21:480:21:50

Mr Netanyahu says the allegations

are "baseless" and he intends

0:21:500:21:53

to continue as leader.

0:21:530:21:54

Inflation remained

unchanged last month at 3%.

0:21:540:21:57

The cost of food and some

imported materials fell,

0:21:570:21:59

but prices for clothing and some

leisure activities rose.

0:21:590:22:01

Last week the Bank of England warned

that interest rates may go up

0:22:010:22:05

quicker than expected

to help curb inflation.

0:22:050:22:13

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have

made their first official

0:22:130:22:15

joint visit to Scotland.

0:22:150:22:16

The trip began with a walkabout

at Edinburgh Castle,

0:22:160:22:19

where the couple had a close

encounter with the mascot

0:22:190:22:23

of the Royal Regiment of Scotland -

a Shetland pony - before visiting

0:22:230:22:26

a cafe in the city

which helps the homeless.

0:22:260:22:30

A judge has upheld the UK arrest

warrant for the founder

0:22:300:22:31

of the Wikileaks website,

Julian Assange.

0:22:310:22:34

It was issued when he breached bail

conditions in 2012 and sought refuge

0:22:340:22:37

at the Ecuadorean Embassy in London,

where he's been ever since.

0:22:370:22:41

He was facing sexual assault

allegations in Sweden,

0:22:410:22:43

which have since been dropped.

0:22:430:22:50

The country of Guyana,

in South America, is one

0:22:500:22:53

of the smallest in the world,

with a population of under 800,000,

0:22:530:22:56

and yet it has the highest

suicide rate among women,

0:22:560:22:59

some five times higher

than the UK, according

0:22:590:23:01

to the World Health Oganisation.

0:23:010:23:04

Our reporter, Tiffany Sweeney,

reports now from the capital

0:23:040:23:08

Georgetown on the scale

of the problem and the latest

0:23:080:23:11

initiatives to tackle it.

0:23:110:23:12

From the lush greenery

of its countryside,

0:23:120:23:17

to its vibrant capital Georgetown,

it's a place of beauty and colour.

0:23:170:23:23

But below the surface,

there's a darker under current.

0:23:230:23:27

Underlying all of this

is a cultural acceptance that

0:23:270:23:30

suicide is part of Guyana.

0:23:300:23:38

It's not just one thing that makes

someone think that, you know what,

0:23:390:23:42

I'm going to end my life.

0:23:420:23:43

Every day my parents would have

money and many of those things

0:23:430:23:46

are contributed to it.

0:23:460:23:49

And it was seeing her parents find

it difficult to feed her family that

0:23:490:23:52

led to Lisa's depression and trying

to take her own life,

0:23:520:23:56

at the age of 14.

0:23:560:23:59

Yeah, I felt as though, you know,

they were struggling a lot

0:23:590:24:05

and I wanted to do more

and to help them.

0:24:050:24:09

I felt like if I was out

of the equation, then things

0:24:090:24:15

would be much better.

0:24:150:24:20

Good morning.

Good morning.

0:24:200:24:23

But Lisa is here today because one

teacher encouraged her to talk.

0:24:230:24:30

She won Miss Guyana and used her

platform to set up Pora,

0:24:300:24:38

-- Pots, prevention

of teenage suicide.

0:24:460:24:47

# I would take back

everything back #.

0:24:470:24:49

Lisa shares her story

of how she became a singer

0:24:490:24:51

and a model, it's her way

of inspiring young people.

0:24:510:24:54

After the discussion,

five school children wanted to talk.

0:24:540:24:56

About things that happen.

0:24:560:24:59

I'm always in school.

0:24:590:25:03

I never, never like to let people

know my feelings, I always smile.

0:25:030:25:09

They all shared similar stories,

of family members dying, absent

0:25:090:25:11

parents and bullying at school.

0:25:110:25:16

Some were so overwhelming,

it was clear they needed support.

0:25:160:25:20

Support that this school gives

through its teachers,

0:25:200:25:23

but here they're still waiting

for a counsellor, something

0:25:230:25:25

the government has pledged.

0:25:250:25:27

If you're so young and vulnerable

at that age and no-one's telling

0:25:270:25:32

you that you can be something

or you can make something

0:25:320:25:35

of your life, I believe in you,

then you feel worthless,

0:25:350:25:37

and that's essentially

what these kids are feeling.

0:25:370:25:42

So what's the best theme?

0:25:420:25:48

Mine one is, say it...

0:25:480:25:51

Beverley Cyrus is the head

teacher at this school,

0:25:510:25:53

she believes tackling issues at home

are just as important as education.

0:25:530:25:56

Some of them are living,

like, in different homes

0:25:560:25:58

at different periods of time.

0:25:580:26:02

So most of them are not

in a stable home.

0:26:020:26:05

So you find various behaviours

are coming out because what mum

0:26:050:26:07

would encourage, grandmum wouldn't.

0:26:070:26:12

She, like Lisa, believes

by nurturing the children to focus

0:26:120:26:16

positively on the skills they do

have, it will help to improve

0:26:160:26:19

their mental health.

0:26:190:26:24

The government is opening several

specialist centres this year

0:26:240:26:28

to address the fact the suicide rate

among women is the highest

0:26:280:26:31

in the world and for men

the second highest.

0:26:310:26:36

Suriname is two hours

from the capital and is

0:26:360:26:39

the region most affected.

0:26:390:26:42

The hospital here says one

of their main issues is the negative

0:26:420:26:47

way in which suicide

is commonly discussed.

0:26:470:26:49

You hear it sitting in a car.

0:26:490:26:51

It's discussed, it's laughed at.

0:26:510:26:54

It's like an every day conversation.

0:26:540:26:58

She called for other governmental

bodies to play their part.

0:26:580:27:01

As I've said, we can't stand

alone, we're a house,

0:27:010:27:07

so we need all the pillars

to ensure our people stand.

0:27:070:27:12

The authorities are trying to find

a way out, but it will take

0:27:120:27:15

a cultural shift to change

the conversation surrounding mental

0:27:150:27:18

health to one that will change

the tide in a positive direction.

0:27:180:27:23

Tiffany Sweeney, BBC News, Guyana.

0:27:230:27:30

The English Premier League has

tonight revealed how much UK

0:27:300:27:32

broadcasters will pay for the right

to show football over a three-year

0:27:320:27:35

period, starting next year.

0:27:350:27:38

Our sports correspondent,

Richard Conway, is here and has

0:27:380:27:40

been casting an eye over

what we know so far.

0:27:400:27:43

Tell us about the figures. What

deals have been struck?

Sky are the

0:27:430:27:47

big winners tonight. Theyed have

secured 128 games under this new

0:27:470:27:50

deal. They will pay £1.2 billion per

season for those games. That will

0:27:500:27:58

extend over a three year period. The

company will pay 16% less per match

0:27:580:28:03

though. A reduction on their current

contract. BT, they have secured one

0:28:030:28:09

of the seven packages available them

will show 32 games across Saturday

0:28:090:28:13

lunch times at a cost of £295

million per season. £9 million per

0:28:130:28:20

match twochlt more packages of games

remain. For bank holiday and midweek

0:28:200:28:23

games. They remain to be sold am

they are multiple bidders interested

0:28:230:28:26

in them, we are told. There is

speculation the tech giants, Netflix

0:28:260:28:32

and Amazon and Facebook they could

come for those packages remain we

0:28:320:28:37

have to wait and see on that. In

all, the BT and Sky have paid £4.5

0:28:370:28:43

billion over three years. It's a

huge sum, not as much as last time.

0:28:430:28:47

It will mean that the clubs in the

Premier League will still be able to

0:28:470:28:51

fund the big transfers, big wages

and the big money to agents. More to

0:28:510:28:55

come from overseas deals. Fans, they

will want that dialogue over fair

0:28:550:28:59

ticket policies to continue. They

will want to know what is happening

0:28:590:29:02

with grass-roots money as well. The

big money remains in English

0:29:020:29:06

football, but the broadcasters

appear, for now at least, to have

0:29:060:29:09

reached a limit on what they are

prepared to pay.

Richard thank the

0:29:090:29:13

again for latest on that. Richard

Conway there for us.

0:29:130:29:20

In the Champions League,

Tottenham Hotspur made a remarkable

0:29:200:29:22

comeback in Italy against Juventus

after going two goals down.

0:29:220:29:25

After Harry Kane scored,

Christian Eriksen equalised

0:29:250:29:26

from a free kick to give Spurs two

away goals to take back

0:29:260:29:29

to Wembley for the second leg.

0:29:290:29:31

In the other tie, Manchester City

cruised to a 4-0 win in Basel,

0:29:310:29:34

all but securing them a place

in the quarter-finals

0:29:340:29:36

of the competition.

0:29:360:29:38

Hopes of a first medal for Britain

at the Winter Olympics,

0:29:380:29:40

in South Korea, were dashed today

when the speed skater,

0:29:400:29:43

Elise Christie, crashed on the last

lap of the Women's 500 Metres Final

0:29:430:29:47

and finished last.

0:29:470:29:51

Our correspondent, Andy Swiss,

reports from Pyeongchang.

0:29:510:29:52

Elise Christie!

0:29:520:29:56

Racing for redemption,

0:29:560:29:58

heartbreak into Olympic glory.

COMMENTATOR:

Away they

go, the final is on.

They get away first time.

0:30:030:30:06

Four years ago in Sochi, Christie

endured a personal nightmare.

0:30:060:30:10

Crashes, disqualifications,

she nearly quit the sport.

0:30:100:30:13

Surely it couldn't happen again?

0:30:130:30:14

COMMENTATOR:

She has work to do

to get back into contention.

0:30:140:30:17

But stuck in fourth place,

she spied a gap, went

0:30:170:30:20

for it and what followed

was horribly familiar.

0:30:200:30:22

COMMENTATOR:

Christie tries

to make it on the inside.

0:30:220:30:25

She's third.

0:30:250:30:26

Christie crashes out.

Christie is out of it once again!

0:30:260:30:29

Fontana going with Choi Min-jeong.

It's a photo finish on the line!

0:30:290:30:34

Once again, Christie's hopes

were sent sliding into the barriers,

0:30:340:30:39

it was Sochi all over again,

and as Italy's Arianna Fontana

0:30:390:30:42

took gold, Christie

was left in utter despair.

0:30:420:30:46

Well, can you believe it,

another Olympics, another

0:30:460:30:48

tumble for Elise Christie.

0:30:480:30:51

She still has two more events

to come, but her Games have

0:30:510:30:54

started in disappointment.

0:30:540:30:58

Replays suggested Christie's hand

had been hit by a rival's

0:30:580:31:02

skate and afterwards,

she was inconsolable.

0:31:020:31:04

As the tears flowed,

she tried to make sense

0:31:040:31:07

of her seemingly endless misfortune.

0:31:070:31:08

I know it's short track

and I know I'm supposed

0:31:080:31:13

to be prepared for this,

but it still hurts, you know.

0:31:130:31:17

Obviously, it's still almost a week

until my best distance,

0:31:170:31:22

so that's the positive...

0:31:220:31:28

I don't know, right now

I just can't see living

0:31:280:31:30

with this feeling, you know.

0:31:300:31:32

I just...

0:31:320:31:35

But, I mean, it's out of my control,

I got knocked over and that's that.

0:31:350:31:39

COMMENTATOR:

Christie...

Oh, they've gone down!

0:31:390:31:40

Those memories of Sochi

four years ago, though,

0:31:400:31:43

may now prove hard to erase.

0:31:430:31:46

She crashed in the same final there,

but her team are urging

0:31:460:31:49

her to stay positive.

0:31:490:31:51

I think you could all see she tried

to put everything out

0:31:510:31:54

there to try and get gold.

0:31:540:31:55

She wasn't going for anything else.

0:31:550:31:57

You know, that's the

nature of the sport.

0:31:570:31:59

You know, crashes do

happen, unfortunately.

0:31:590:32:02

The question now, though,

is whether Britain's biggest medal

0:32:020:32:04

hope can pick herself up again

on a desperate day of deja vu.
