There are demands for Theresa May, to explain why MPs weren't told a

:00:08.:00:13.

A missile, like this, failed to reach its target

:00:14.:00:21.

just weeks before a Parliamentary vote to renew the system.

:00:22.:00:25.

Did you know that misfire had occurred?

:00:26.:00:28.

Well, I have absolute faith in our Trident missiles.

:00:29.:00:31.

When I made that speech in the House of

:00:32.:00:35.

Commons what we were talking about was whether or not we should renew

:00:36.:00:39.

Opposition MPs are demanding ministers make a statement

:00:40.:00:45.

The White House is accused of telling "falsehoods"

:00:46.:00:55.

in a battle with the media, about President Trump's

:00:56.:00:59.

French socialists are voting on their candidate

:01:00.:01:07.

Choose life, choose Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and hope that

:01:08.:01:14.

someone, somewhere cares. It helped define the 1990s,

:01:15.:01:17.

now Trainspotting returns The Prime Minister is under pressure

:01:18.:01:20.

tonight to explain why MPs were not told a Trident missile test went

:01:21.:01:36.

wrong last summer. It happened just weeks before

:01:37.:01:39.

a crucial Commons vote on the future of Britain's nuclear deterrent,

:01:40.:01:41.

when Theresa May urged Parliament to back renewal

:01:42.:01:44.

of the weapons system. Today, she repeatedly declined to

:01:45.:01:47.

say whether she knew of the malfunction, when an unarmed missile

:01:48.:01:51.

failed to reach its target. Our Defence Correspondent

:01:52.:01:55.

Jonathan Beale reports. This is what the launch

:01:56.:01:59.

of a Trident missile looks like. Last June the Royal Navy carried out

:02:00.:02:01.

what it calls a "routine un-armed test launch" from HMS Vengeance

:02:02.:02:07.

but we now know that HMS Vengeance was about 200 miles

:02:08.:02:10.

off the Florida coast. It was to fire the missile around

:02:11.:02:17.

5,000 miles across the Atlantic. But a malfunction occurred

:02:18.:02:21.

during its flight and it THE SPEAKER: I call

the Prime Minister. Yet, just weeks later,

:02:25.:02:32.

Theresa May was asking MPs to vote on spending ?40 billion to renew

:02:33.:02:35.

the weapons system. Mr Speaker we've waited long enough,

:02:36.:02:39.

it is time to get on with building the next generation

:02:40.:02:42.

of our nuclear deterrent. Today she was asked four

:02:43.:02:46.

times if she knew then Did you know that

:02:47.:02:49.

misfire had occurred? Well, I have absolute faith

:02:50.:02:56.

in our Trident missiles. I think we should

:02:57.:02:59.

defend our country. I think we should play our role

:03:00.:03:05.

in NATO with an independent Did you know about it when you told

:03:06.:03:08.

the House of Commons? was a very serious issue.

:03:09.:03:14.

about in the House of Commons It was about whether or not

:03:15.:03:21.

we should renew Trident. Whether we should look to the future

:03:22.:03:23.

and have a replacement Trident. That's what we were talking

:03:24.:03:25.

about in the House of Commons. That's what the House

:03:26.:03:27.

of Commons voted for. He doesn't want to defend our

:03:28.:03:30.

country with an independent There are tests that take place

:03:31.:03:36.

all the time, regularly What we were talking about in that

:03:37.:03:42.

debate that took place... I'm not going to get

:03:43.:03:47.

an answer to this. We understand the Prime Minister

:03:48.:03:49.

chose not to inform Parliament about this and it's come out

:03:50.:03:52.

through the media some months later. It's a pretty catastrophic

:03:53.:03:56.

error when a missile goes Whilst the Ministry of Defence has

:03:57.:03:58.

publicised past success launches of the Trident missile,

:03:59.:04:05.

in this incident they say they would give no further details

:04:06.:04:08.

of the test in June, because of national

:04:09.:04:10.

security reasons. In a statement, the MoD would only

:04:11.:04:12.

say that the submarine HMS Vengeance and her crew were successfully

:04:13.:04:15.

tested and certified. But significantly, officials

:04:16.:04:18.

do not deny that there was a problem with the missile,

:04:19.:04:20.

or that it might have The former head of the Royal

:04:21.:04:24.

Navy says ministers The missiles have been fired now,

:04:25.:04:29.

since 1990, regularly, I don't think it would have made

:04:30.:04:35.

any difference at all. By not publicising it,

:04:36.:04:52.

it immediately makes you think - The Government still says it has

:04:53.:04:55.

absolute confidence in Britain's nuclear weapons system but this

:04:56.:05:08.

incident just raises questions Our Deputy Political

:05:09.:05:12.

Editor John Pienaar How damaging is all this for the

:05:13.:05:26.

Prime Minister? Well, you only had to watch that interview, Clive, to

:05:27.:05:31.

see this is a difficult story, and an uncomfortable time with potential

:05:32.:05:35.

for political embarrassment. The betting is the Defence Secretary,

:05:36.:05:39.

Sir Michael Fallon, could well be asked to make a statement to the

:05:40.:05:47.

House of Commons tomorrow, on all of this and he could argue this was a

:05:48.:06:00.

routine test, that there's no realistic chance of a nuclear

:06:01.:06:09.

accidental strike on Moscow, let alone Florida. Experts would say a

:06:10.:06:21.

stray missile would be aborted long before it land on Disneyland. It's

:06:22.:06:30.

also true that most MPs at Westminster do

:06:31.:06:53.

The Prime Minister has also confirmed that she'll visit

:06:54.:06:55.

Washington for talks with President Trump on Friday,

:06:56.:06:58.

the first world leader to meet him since his inauguration.

:06:59.:07:00.

Mrs May said she would build on the special relationship

:07:01.:07:04.

between Britain and America, but would challenge any opinions

:07:05.:07:07.

Here's our Political Correspondent Iain Watson.

:07:08.:07:12.

We'll have an opportunity it talk about our possible future trading

:07:13.:07:22.

relationship but also some of the world challenges we face. It all

:07:23.:07:28.

sounds positive but the two leaders will have to square this circle. ! I

:07:29.:07:32.

want us to be a global Britain. As you can see, our business with

:07:33.:07:49.

our EU partners is worth far more than our trade with the United

:07:50.:07:54.

States. No trade agreement can replace or match what we will lose

:07:55.:08:01.

our own doorstep Europe. It is well known here that the team around

:08:02.:08:04.

Theresa May were not exactly the biggest fans of Donald Trump when he

:08:05.:08:08.

was a candidate, but as soon as he was elected his officials were

:08:09.:08:13.

dispatched to the States trying to mention -- men brackets

:08:14.:08:15.

now the Prime Minister insists she still isn't fair to raise really

:08:16.:08:21.

difficult issues with the new leader of the free world.

:08:22.:08:32.

Theresa May was a little coy on what she would say face-to-face with

:08:33.:08:38.

Donald Trump, but... I think the biggest game of that will be made

:08:39.:08:41.

about the role of women is the fact I will be there as a female role

:08:42.:08:52.

model. In the 80s, Mrs Fach and Ronald Reagan had a close and candid

:08:53.:08:58.

relationship. -- magus -- Mrs Thatcher.

:08:59.:09:07.

The White House has vowed to fight the news media

:09:08.:09:10.

what officials see as unfair attacks on Donald Trump.

:09:11.:09:13.

The new President has taken issue with estimates

:09:14.:09:15.

of the size of the crowd at his inauguration on Friday.

:09:16.:09:17.

His press secretary says it was the biggest

:09:18.:09:19.

in history for such an event, but as our North America

:09:20.:09:22.

Editor Jon Sopel reports, the evidence doesn't

:09:23.:09:24.

The weightiest issues on the planet were discussed

:09:25.:09:35.

at Donald Trump's inaugural address, but what the president is in a white

:09:36.:09:38.

rage about are suggestions that the crowds for him were not

:09:39.:09:43.

as big as they were for Barack Obama eight years ago, even though

:09:44.:09:47.

the evidence is incontrovertible, as these two photos,

:09:48.:09:51.

each taken 45 minutes before the inauguration

:09:52.:09:54.

But last night, journalists were summoned to the most

:09:55.:10:00.

extraordinary White House briefing to be told they were lying.

:10:01.:10:06.

This was the largest audience to ever witness

:10:07.:10:08.

This kind of dishonesty in the media, the challenging,

:10:09.:10:15.

the bringing of our nation together, is making it more difficult.

:10:16.:10:18.

There has been a lot of talk in the media

:10:19.:10:21.

about the responsibility to hold Donald Trump accountable,

:10:22.:10:24.

and I'm here to tell you that it goes two ways.

:10:25.:10:26.

We are going to hold the press accountable as well.

:10:27.:10:29.

Earlier in the day from Donald Trump, on a visit

:10:30.:10:39.

to CIA headquarters, a similar attack, though this time

:10:40.:10:42.

As you know, I have a running war with the media.

:10:43.:10:49.

They are among the most dishonest human beings on earth.

:10:50.:10:52.

They sort of made it sound like I had a feud

:10:53.:10:56.

But, hang on a minute, how do you reconcile the suggestion

:10:57.:11:02.

that it's all got up by the journalists when he

:11:03.:11:05.

He accused the intelligence services of leaking material against him,

:11:06.:11:11.

and suggested their behaviour made it seem as though we were

:11:12.:11:14.

And today, key lieutenants were intensifying their attacks.

:11:15.:11:21.

There is an obsession by the media to delegitimise this president,

:11:22.:11:24.

and we are not going to sit around and let it happen.

:11:25.:11:27.

Our press secretary gave alternative facts to that.

:11:28.:11:31.

Look, alternative facts are not facts, they are falsehoods.

:11:32.:11:35.

Part of this can be put down to Donald Trump's obsession

:11:36.:11:38.

with the size of his crowd, but there is deliberate

:11:39.:11:42.

It seems the White House wants to undermine the conventional media

:11:43.:11:48.

so that Donald Trump is able to present his own version

:11:49.:11:51.

of reality through Twitter and Facebook without any mediation,

:11:52.:11:54.

and say to the public, who do you believe, me

:11:55.:11:58.

And while this battle plays itself out, the satirists are making hay.

:11:59.:12:04.

This is their take on what Vladimir Putin makes of it all.

:12:05.:12:07.

I am glad to see so many people showed up to your inauguration.

:12:08.:12:11.

The authorities in Israel have approved the construction of more

:12:12.:12:24.

than 500 homes for settlers, in occupied East Jerusalem.

:12:25.:12:28.

The decision was delayed until Donald Trump took

:12:29.:12:30.

He spoke to the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu by phone

:12:31.:12:34.

today, and had previously said, he would be Israel's "best friend".

:12:35.:12:42.

A woman with dual British and Iranian citizenship,

:12:43.:12:44.

has had her appeal against a five-year prison sentence

:12:45.:12:47.

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe hasn't been told the full details

:12:48.:12:51.

of the charges against her, but her husband says

:12:52.:12:56.

she was accused of recruiting staff for the BBC's Farsi service

:12:57.:12:59.

He says she's innocent of both claims.

:13:00.:13:03.

France's socialist party, will be choosing between a former

:13:04.:13:05.

Prime Minister and a staunch left-winger for it's candidate

:13:06.:13:10.

Prime Minister and a staunch left-winger for its candidate

:13:11.:13:12.

Initial results from the first round of voting suggest

:13:13.:13:17.

the centrist, Manuel Valls, will take on Benoit Hamon, who says

:13:18.:13:19.

But the eventual winner won't be the only socialist

:13:20.:13:23.

candidate, as Lucy Williamson reports from Paris.

:13:24.:13:24.

He was the liberal Prime Minister who divided the Socialist Party. Now

:13:25.:13:37.

Manuel Valls wants to unite it as its candidate for president. His

:13:38.:13:44.

opponent for the run-off, Benoit Hamon is offering voters a very

:13:45.:13:50.

different brand of socialism, including a monthly payment to 750

:13:51.:13:56.

euros to every French citizen, regardless of income. Trands transby

:13:57.:14:00.

putting me ahead of the other candidate you are sending a message

:14:01.:14:08.

of hope and renewal. You want to write a new page for the left and

:14:09.:14:13.

for France. Today's result is the verdict of a party divided, and also

:14:14.:14:15.

disillusioned. Turnout was much cloeer than in the socialist primary

:14:16.:14:18.

five years ago. A sign that few here believe they are choosing the next

:14:19.:14:21.

president. There is going to be very little chance for the left wing

:14:22.:14:24.

because I think the people are so disappointed in Francois Hollande's

:14:25.:14:26.

presidency. But there is still hope. Even if we don't win in the next

:14:27.:14:30.

election, it'll set the mood for what is going to happen and what

:14:31.:14:34.

type of a position we can do. When it comes to finding a left-wing

:14:35.:14:37.

candidate for the presidency, the Socialist Party race is only part of

:14:38.:14:43.

the story. After five years of President Hollande's unpopular

:14:44.:14:45.

government, interest in this primary is low and two of the most popular

:14:46.:14:49.

left-wing politicians aren't even taking part.

:14:50.:14:57.

Emmanuel Macrn left the Government last year and is drawing business

:14:58.:15:01.

crowds to his own independent president campaign.

:15:02.:15:04.

And the leader of the France's far left party is also running on his

:15:05.:15:09.

own ticket. Whoever wins the socialist nomination next Sunday

:15:10.:15:12.

will leave left-wing voters with a choice - split their votes among

:15:13.:15:16.

three different parties, or unite behind one of the candidates on

:15:17.:15:19.

offer. They might be celebrating now, but

:15:20.:15:25.

to stand any chance of keeping the far right Front Nationale from

:15:26.:15:31.

power, the socialist candidate may have to choose who they want to

:15:32.:15:38.

help, their opponents on the right, or their rivals on the left.

:15:39.:15:43.

Now, to a film that defined a generation.

:15:44.:15:46.

Trainspotting made stars of the original cast

:15:47.:15:48.

including Ewan McGregor and now more than 20

:15:49.:15:52.

Trainspotting 2 has had its premiere in Edinburgh tonight,

:15:53.:15:58.

and our Entertainment Correspondent Colin Paterson was there.

:15:59.:16:00.

After more than 20 years, the Trainspotting

:16:01.:16:03.

the orange carpet of the long-awaited sequel.

:16:04.:16:11.

How does this compare to the 1996 premier?

:16:12.:16:14.

I mean, yeah, for probably a very good reason!

:16:15.:16:32.

LAUGHTER Apart from all the fun stuff in the

:16:33.:16:42.

first movie, I think people found it relate

:16:43.:16:46.

to ball, even though it was

:16:47.:16:50.

maybe about subjects they weren't involved in,

:16:51.:16:52.

it was still relate to

:16:53.:16:56.

This is carrying such a cultural weight associated

:16:57.:17:02.

with it, that it feels like no event I've been to before.

:17:03.:17:06.

Choose life, choose a job, choose a career...

:17:07.:17:07.

The movie poster was on student's withdrawals, the sound track in CD

:17:08.:17:17.

players. It dealt with addiction, hedonism and friendship. So what you

:17:18.:17:24.

are looking at is that? Thief changed the wall, haven't they?

:17:25.:17:29.

Earlier in the day, the director, Danny Boyle took us back to where it

:17:30.:17:35.

all began. We implied they were straight from Prince's Street, where

:17:36.:17:40.

they were being chased by detectives and he gets hit here. What have you

:17:41.:17:48.

been up to for 20 years? Since Trainspotting, Danny Boyle has

:17:49.:17:52.

dominated the Oscars with Slumdog Millionaire and triumphed at the

:17:53.:17:58.

Olympic opening ceremony. Since we made the first movie, people come up

:17:59.:18:05.

to you and talk about the characters like you know them. That made you

:18:06.:18:16.

think we had caped of duty to perhaps turn to it again. Here we

:18:17.:18:22.

are, more than 20 years' later. How do you make sure this is not the

:18:23.:18:26.

film equivalent of dad dancing? ? The truth is, you can't.

:18:27.:18:32.

Part of the responsibility of what we were doing is embracing

:18:33.:18:36.

the fact that we were making a sequel to a story that

:18:37.:18:39.

Choose life, choose Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and hope that

:18:40.:18:45.

And the cast are already talking about a third film, based

:18:46.:18:51.

Yeah, when we're all in our 60s, in some skag house old folks

:18:52.:19:03.

I mean, I think, the blade artist, Irving, who is just arrived there,

:19:04.:19:14.

I'm up for it, he's up for it, so don't think you've seen

:19:15.:19:16.

With all the sport, here's Hugh Woozencroft

:19:17.:19:25.

Andy Murray is out of the Australian Open.

:19:26.:19:30.

The number one seed was beaten by the world number 50,

:19:31.:19:35.

Mischa Zverev in the fourth round in Melbourne,

:19:36.:19:48.

Andy Murray leaves Melbourne having missed an opportunity.

:19:49.:19:55.

With Novak Djokovic out, the draw had opened up for him.

:19:56.:19:59.

His path had been blocked by an unexpected obstacle.

:20:00.:20:02.

He played extremely well, especially tend of the match.

:20:03.:20:06.

He did come up with some great stuff.

:20:07.:20:08.

Mischa Zverev isn't even the best player in his family.

:20:09.:20:17.

His younger brother Alex is said to be the one to watch

:20:18.:20:20.

After losing the first set against the player ranked almost

:20:21.:20:23.

50 places below him, Murray tried to repair the damage.

:20:24.:20:27.

He levelled the match but the German was proving

:20:28.:20:30.

His game plan was to serve and volley.

:20:31.:20:36.

If you're waiting to see the football highlights this

:20:37.:20:42.

evening, then please, look away for the next minute.

:20:43.:20:44.

In the Premier League, Arsenal needed a 98th minute

:20:45.:20:46.

Referee Jon Moss awarded two injury-time penalties.

:20:47.:20:49.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was sent to the stands but Alexis Sanchez's

:20:50.:20:53.

spot kick moves them up to second in the table.

:20:54.:20:55.

Chelsea moved eight points clear with a 2-0 win over Hull City.

:20:56.:20:58.

In the early kick off, Southampton beat Champions Leicester.

:21:14.:21:15.

You can watch the conclusion on BBC Two.

:21:16.:21:18.

England's cricketers have dramatically won the third and final

:21:19.:21:20.

one day international against India in Kolkata.

:21:21.:21:22.

India needed only six runs off the final four balls to win

No Brit has won an Alpine World Cup Ski race in the 50

:21:46.:21:49.

The last on the podium was Konrad Bartelski, back in 1981.

Before we go, just time to tell you of a new BBC global affairs

:21:53.:21:56.

programme starting tomorrow, with the focus on Donald Trump's
