The survivors of the Florida school
shooting are demanding change.
President Trump moves a little,
he says he is open to tighter
but is it enough to
encourage Congress to act?
Enough is enough! Enough is enough!
As students stage protests,
we hear from one of the survivors
of the Florida shooting,
who has this message
for the President.
He's going to see in our eyes that
we're not going to back
down, no matter what.
We're not going to stop
until change has happened.
The FBI is too focused on Russia,
says the President, who this
weekend tweeted 12 times
about the Russia investigation.
But that wasn't the only issue
on the President's mind...
He takes aim at Oprah Winfrey,
calling her insecure.
Berlusconi's back on camera.
The former Italian PM tells the BBC
he's the man to lead Italy.
Off camera, though...
Don't shake hands
like that, too strong!
Men will think, this one
is going to beat me up,
and no-one will marry you.
Hello and welcome -
I'm Christian Fraser in London,
Jon Sopel is in Washington.
The problems started
in middle school.
The assaults, the disturbing
drawings, the Florida shooter
Nikolas Cruz was cited in more that
incidents at his school.
He'd written that he
wanted to kill people.
So how is it a character
with a background like that
was allowed to buy not just one
firearm, but ten, and
all of them rifles.
Today, the President, whose
campaign, of course, was part funded
by the National Rifle Association,
said he is supportive
of efforts to improve
federal background checks.
On Wednesday, he'll
sit down with students
to hear their concerns.
He's already heard the anger
and today, there was a protest
outside the White House.
16-year-old Rain Vayadarez
was in a room in the middle
of the school at the time
of the shooting.
One of her friends
was shot three times.
She plans to join a student march
on the state capital of Florida
later this week to call for change.
Rain, before I talk
to you about the march and the way
you're going to campaign,
I must start by asking you how
you are feeling and how
you are processing the enormity
of what happened last week.
Well, at first, everything
was just a huge shock.
You're going to hear
that from everyone.
But each day feels different.
You know, the first day was shock,
the next day was grief,
but now it's more and more hope.
Of course we are grieving
every single life lost.
It's incredibly devastating,
the fact that this happened right
in front of my eyes,
right in front of everyone's eyes,
but slowly but surely,
we are going to make a change.
We're coming together.
I've never seen this sense of unity,
it's just so strong.
Not just within our community,
just within the country,
and I'm just grateful that this
is what it's come to.
The lives that were lost,
it's a huge tragedy,
but the fact that we're coming back
from this and we are using our
voices to make a difference,
it's just filling my heart again
with this will, this strength.
There's a lot of grassroot
noise at the moment,
a lot of movement springing up,
a lot of people want change
and they are calling for change.
But of course, what happened last
week is very fresh in people's
conscience at the moment.
So how do you harness everything
that's happening this week
and make sure that you can,
over the long term, deliver
the change that you want?
Within these protests
that we're having, we're
still visiting viewings,
we're still going to vigils,
we're still participating
in going to the funerals
in between all this.
So in the middle of everything,
we're still grieving and we're
still upset, angry, mourning.
But we're using this energy
that we have to be the change,
to use our voices, and I think just
knowing that because of this
tragedy, the fact that we're
using it as a catalyst for change,
I think it's just the best thing
that we could have done from this.
Rain, you've got a demonstration
in Tallahassee in Florida this week,
there's going to be a demonstration
in Washington next month and I think
the President is going to meet
a number of students this week.
Do you think that you can change
the President's mind on the whole
issue of gun control?
Yes, because this whole time,
he has not spoken with us directly.
He has not spoken to the students,
the staff, he has not spoken
directly with the families, victims.
And I feel like if he looks me
in the eye, he looks
all of us in the eye,
he sees the amount of passion
and change that we're calling,
pleading, demanding from him.
Because he's going to know,
he's going to see in our eyes that
we're not going to back down.
No matter what, we're not
going to stop until change
has happened, you know,
this country changes.
My heart can barely go through this
one time and I'm not
going to let it happen again,
I'm not going to let my heart
go through this again.
I'm not going to let these families,
these victims end in vain.
Rain, great pleasure talking to you.
Thank you very much
indeed for being with us.
Thank you so much.
Another of these eloquent students
from Florida, who we must remember
are attending the funerals of their
Let's bring in Andy Parker -
he is the father of Alison Parker -
the reporter who was shot and killed
live on air whilst doing
an interview in 2015.
He's campaigned for gun control
since his daughter's death,
and joins us now from Virginia.
It is very good of you to spell some
time. The similarities of the
character of the man involved in
Florida and the man who murdered
your daughter are there for all to
Yes. And the sad thing is that
immediately, the president comes out
with, well, it's mental illness, and
certainly this young man had not
illness. Alison's shooter had no
mental illness. That's how they
deflect the crisis that we have and
the plague that we have going on in
this country. We're not the only
country in the world that has mental
illness. But we do have a monopoly
on mental illness and the two easily
available guns that they can get
their hands on.
I read some of your
campaign literature today and you
have, in the past, specifically
called out the chairperson of the
judiciary committee, a republican
who has enormous power in Congress.
You say that he told you
face-to-face that he would never
hold a hearing on gun legislation.
Do you think he might just have
changed his mind this week?
I wish I
could say that but sadly, no. You
mentioned, and I saw earlier, that
the president suggested he might
consider some kind of background
checks. Well, in the wake of Las
Vegas, they did the same thing with
that and of course it went away.
Sadly, the only way we're going to
make a change in country is we have
to kick every Republican lawmaker
from state level to congressional
level, you have to kick them to the
card. Because the other problem and
they are in the pockets of the gun
lobby. You're not going to change
their minds. You're just not. Even
these kids, I love what they're
doing. But, you know, looking the
president in the eye, as I did, it's
not go to change their mind. You've
just got to get them of there.
Andy, we've already seen that after
Sandy Hook, there was an
overwhelming call that there should
be action taken. It didn't happen.
The ad seen -- we have seen a whole
succession of dastardly deaths. Your
daughter's, what happened in
Charleston, Las Vegas, I can go on
and add to the list. What is it that
is going to shift the dial on this
The only way, the only way is
to put Republicans in the minority.
That's it. Some of these guys are
true believers. They want guns
everywhere. Even in Virginia, the
House Majority Leader in Virginia
thinks that a specialty license
plate that says Stopped On Violence,
something as basic as that, would
lead to guns being seized. We have
typically does out there who are not
afraid to tackle the gun issue. I
haven't seen that coming from any
Republican lawmaker in the country.
Other than Susan Collins, she might
OK, Andy, we have to leave it
there. Grateful to you for joining
us. From Virginia. Thank you very
Michael Nutter is
the former Democratic
mayor of Philadelphia -
he has just written a new book.
It's called the best
job in politics.
You would think that a while back
we would have actually done
certainly after Sandy Hook.
But there is a different
feeling from Florida.
I think a lot of it has to do
with the voices of the young people
speaking out very strongly,
very directly, and being heard.
I hope that more and more adults,
or people who are supposed to be
adults, take their lead,
show some guts and actually
do even a few things,
reasonable things that can be done.
Mayor Nutter, we talk a lot
about federal solutions
to these atrocities,
but what shines through from your
book is that you had remarkable
success dealing with the homicide
rate in your city.
In fact, it was at a 50-year low
by the end of your term.
So I'm bound to ask from this side,
from London, why can't America find
local solutions within cities
and within states?
Again, as you mention from the book,
even the legislative success
that we had came as a result
of my being sued, the city
being sued by the NRA
on my 100th day in office,
which I would say is one
of the proudest moments
of my entire political career.
The conflating of the Second
Amendment and what I would say
is someone's First Amendment right
not to be shot is a ruse by the NRA.
They are very powerful,
they attack state legislatures
to the extent that general
assemblies have prohibited
or pre-empted local action
on the issue of guns.
Notwithstanding the fact that
many of our large population centres
have a need to be able to better
regulate what happens.
Mayor Nutter, I think one
of the things that shines
through from your book is that
you absolutely loved
your time being a mayor.
Practical actions, getting things
done for the people of Philadelphia.
Do you think when we talk
about who is going to be the next
Democratic Party candidate
for President that instead
of looking to Congress or looking
to a Governor's mansion, we should
look to city mayors?
Again, with every respect to those
other offices that you mentioned,
there is no executive closer
to the ground, closer
to the people than a mayor.
Small, medium or large a city,
we have a daily duty to get stuff
done and make things happen
on behalf of our constituents.
You can't have the kind of gridlock
that we see in Congress
taking place in cities.
These are folks who are used
to getting things done and making
things happen on behalf
of their constituents and could do
the same at the national level.
Just a final question
to you, we haven't talked
about Donald Trump.
You have a quote in your book which
says, if you have a deep-seated need
to be loved and admired every day,
you shouldn't be in politics,
you should go to work at a pet shop.
I wonder whether you
had anyone in mind.
Well, I've had a lot
of people in mind with regard
to that particular quote,
but it absolutely fits
the current President
of the United States of America.
His need for constant adulation
and constant attention,
this kind of personality disorder
is very disruptive to any common
sense here in America and it's quite
He could run maybe the biggest pet
shop in the world and should be
really happy doing that.
Mayor Michael Nutter, thank you very
much indeed for being with us.
With me in the studio
is our political analyst and former
advisor to George W Bush,
Always great to have you with us.
Let's just start on some of what
Donald Trump said today. That they
might be in favour of tighter
background checks on guns. Is this
the start of a movement or is this a
limited bit of space that Donald
Trump is willing to give and doesn't
simplify very much?
to you. It is too early to say. It
is a step in the right direction
but, as we know, with Congress being
controlled by Republicans, I don't
know that there is a movement
necessarily to have significant
gun-control legislation at this
point that could pass the 60 vote
Senate and make the present's desk.
Thank you for that. I wanted to stay
with us, because it's been a holiday
weekend in the United States.
The president has been at Malalai
go. -- Mar-a-Lago.
But this time took
the decision not to play golf.
It might have looked unseemely
so close to the Florida shooting.
Instead, by all accounts,
the President watched
television, cable news.
Which always draws a reaction.
Even by this President's
was a weekend tirade.
He blamed the FBI for failing
to stop the Florida shooter,
they are too focused
on Russia he wrote.
If it was the goal of Russia to sew
discord and disruption,
said another tweet, then
they are laughing their
asses off in Moscow.
It is worth noting that
the President who blames
the FBI for their Russia
"obsession" posted 12
tweets this weekend
on the Russia investigation.
There is a recessed by Russia? The
FBI, Congress Donald Trump?
one. -- the third answer. Donald
Trump. It was several tweets. He
needs to recognise he is in charge
of the Executive branch. Mr
President, you're in charge of the
Executive branch of government. If
you see something that needs to be
change, you can make that order. I
think it is juvenile to go on
Twitter like the way he does and it
is beyond the office he holds.
on holiday last week and my phone
kept going because of Trump. I was
on holiday, kept going!
This is what happened when Oprah
Winfrey spoke to voters last year.
Who here believes that he made the
comment about, quote, "BLEEP hole
You think he made the comment?
Yeah, I think he made
the comment, yeah.
I think all presidents have
made comments behind
closed doors and it wasn't reported.
You think all presidents have used
the term "BLEEP hole"?
Yes, I do.
OK, can I just say something?
It's not about the swearing.
I expect every
politican to say that.
It's the fact that he
demeaned an entire race.
And if our president, who we...
I respect the office.
And I expect and demand
better actions than that.
Right, first off, there's nothing
insecure about Oprah Winfrey. We all
know that. But of course, she is
potentially a presidential
candidate. Its President's weekend.
Why is he tweeting about Oprah
Christian, first of all,
welcome back. Good to see you back.
We've missed you. I have no earthly
idea. I'm a republican, and
conservative, I like Oprah Winfrey.
When your President of the United
States, you represent all 330
million of us, Republican, Democrat
or independent. The fact that he
will single out people voted as is
is not what you should be doing. You
should be leading by example. The
example President Trump is leading
by Right now leads me to ask, why is
he doing and saying these things? I
have no idea.
Thank you very much, as ever, for
your insight and analysis. I
suppose, Christian, these tweets are
extraordinary in many different
ways. If you look at the guns issue
first of all, may be Donald Trump is
the person who can deliver something
on guns in a way that Barack Obama
simply couldn't. Because there were
so many people who were set against
him and thought that they didn't
want to listen to him. And there
were Democrats in red states voted
to maintain the second Amendment
rights, against laba-mac Obama was
calling for, because they feared for
their political careers if they
voted any other way.
When it comes
to Russia, the CAC was OK about the
indictments because they were people
not necessarily connected to his
campaign. Many watched cable news
all the weekend. Sitting in his
room, not playing golf and he
thought, maybe this isn't a good
thing. He tweets 12 times about
Russia. Condemnation in the air, for
Congress, for the team in occasions
adviser in Munich and doesn't say
the right things, no condemnation
from the commander-in-chief about
That is the key point. You
have an entitlement against
Russians. Three Russian entities,
the details of what they were doing,
we now know as a result of that
indictment. And yet from the
president, there are still not been
condemnation of Russia. There are
still much been condemnation of
Vladimir Putin. Most importantly of
all, where is the outrage that says
a foreign entity is interfering in
US democracy and outlining a
strategy of what is going to be done
to correct it? That's what's been
missing from the present's response
Let's take a look at some of the
day's other news.
A former researcher
at Birmingham University,
said to be one of Britain's worst
sexual offenders, has
been jailed for 32 years
for offences against children.
Matthew Falder pleaded
guilty to 137 charges,
including encouraging the rape
of a minor and blackmailing his
victims into sending him obscene
footage of themselves carrying
out degrading acts.
The operation to catch Falder
included law enforcement
agencies around the world.
An anti-doping case has been opened
against Russian medal-winning
curler Alexander Krushelnitsky, says
the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
Krushelnitsky, who won
bronze with his wife
in the mixed doubles
at the Winter Olympics on Tuesday,
is suspected of testing
positive for meldonium.
Now, here's a striking image
of thousands of starlings swooping
over Blackpool beach
in the North of England.

with flocks of birds swirling
through the skies together before
settling into their
roost for the night.
The numbers swell in winter
when they are joined by migratory
starlings from Scandinavia.

With Silvio Berlusconi,
there is rarely a dull moment.
We had thought his political career
was over, but perhaps not.

an unlikely comeback.
Mr Berlusconi has told the BBC
that he is the best option
for the country in the upcoming

of advice for our reporter,
Sofia Bettiza, who
sent this from Rome.
Many thought he was
But Silvio Berlusconi,
Italy's four-time Prime Minister,
is making a comeback.
His centre-right coalition is set
to win the most votes in the general
election in two weeks' time.
Outside of Italy, Berlusconi's
famous for his love of women and his
ability to remain freshfaced.
But in many parts of this country,
he is much more than that.
voting for Berlusconi.
I trust him.
I'm sure he's learned
from his mistakes.
a good coalition.
He has my full confidence.
Berlusconi can't technically
become Prime Minister.
In 2013, he was barred from public
office because of his criminal
convictions for tax fraud.
But he can still lead his party.
When I caught up with him,
I asked why he thinks he's
the best person for the job.
I was ousted
from politics because of
an unbelievably shameful sentence.
The Italian people know that
everything that's been
said about me is false.
That all the accusations
are made up.
They never stopped trusting me.
And I have governed this country
for longer than anyone else.
His main challenge will come
from the Five Star Movement,
political party on the rise.
So, in a couple of weeks,
Silvio Berlusconi, a man who can't
be elected as an MP and isn't even
allowed to vote, could be back
in power, leading a grand
coalition in Parliament here.
This would be, in effect, the fifth
time he's led this country.
Despite the prominence of feminist
including movements like Me Too,
it seems many Italian women can
look beyond Berlusconi's
alleged sex scandals.
He is my idol.
All men are like that.
He was just a fool
because he got caught.
Me Too is not so strong
in Italy, as it has been
in the Anglo-Saxon countries.
People don't remember
very well the night
of Berlusconi, all the scandals.
It's something far-away
in our memory.
And not many interviews
with prominent politicians end
like this these days.
shake hands like that.
Men will think, this one
is going to beat me up,
and no-one will marry you.
Let's try again.
No, a little less!
Who is ever going to marry you?
You have to joke
every once in awhile.
For many, the idea that Berlusconi
would run the country again
was itself a joke you go.
But the man Italians either love
or hate seems on the verge
of yet another comeback.
As you know, I once had the best job
in television. I was a correspondent
in Rome for two years and they have
covered a couple of Italian
elections. They come around quite
frequently, you will have noticed.
One thing I learned in Rome was that
you should never write off Silvio
Berlusconi. He is the definition of
a political survivor.
trying to think if anyone in
politics today could fit that kind
of description of a populist,
outspoken, controversial, bit of a
reputation where women are
concerned... Nothing comes to mind.

which is a catastrophe unfolding
before our eyes. The way they made
sure water was made available to two
small cities and looked after 5000
people driven out of their homes by
bombs, driven out with nothing apart
from their clothes. They made sure
they had food and medicine so the
truth is this is a brilliant
organisation, temporarily mired by
this awful disaster in Haiti. It
will recover. It has had new
leadership since then, leadership
which I admire and respect. Oxfam
will put it behind them and
re-establish their reputation and
continue doing brilliant work which

Just before Christmas,
the European Commission began
proceedings against Poland,
whose right-wing government,
it argued, was flouting the rule
of law by attacking the independence
of Polish courts and judges.
The clash has highlighted divisions
in the EU between older
Western member states and those
in the east of the bloc like Hungary
and Austria where nationalist
parties have also achieved success.
This week, our correspondent
Jenny Hill, is taking
a look at these divisions.
Today she reports from Zambrow
in Poland on the success
of the governing Law
and Justice or "Pis" party:
When your country has come a long
way, it is easy to feel left behind.
Poland has gone from communism,
to the EU, to relative prosperity.
But out here, many felt
forgotten - until now.
Generous child benefits,
a lower retirement age,
small wonder perhaps the Pis
government gets the family vote.
all the other parties make
promises, but they don't deliver.
Pis kept their promises,
it is good and I support them
and I don't see anything wrong
with what they are doing.
Quite the opposite.
But they have divided
a country, enraged the EU.
Last year protests in Warsaw,
Pis attacks press freedom,
access to abortion and
the independence of the judiciary.

There is no balance of power.
We are moving towards
an authoritarian state.

and will destroy independent

is growing louder.
it was patriotism that drove me
towards Pis, the
patriotism I inherited
from my grandparents and my parents.
I could only find that kind
of patriotism in the Pis party.
It is as if there is
a battle going on here.
For the very soul of this country.
It divides society into liberal
elite or populist patriot
and it is a struggle
which symbolises, perhaps even feeds
what is happening within the EU.
This is no longer a defining
moment simply for Poland,
but for the whole European project.
Because, it seems, no one
is really sure how to deal
with what is arguably the EU's
most troublesome state.

What if you could change
time in a photograph?
That's what National
and Explorer Stephen Wilkes wanted
to achieve in his series
'Day-to-Night.' His aim
was to meld all the events
of a single day into one
image and the results
are pretty spectacular.
Recently we went to see his work
here on display in Washington.
Art that is powerful is emotional
and so I want you to have some kind
of emotional response to
what you are witnessing and seeing.
I try to capture images
that have a certain
kind of scope and breadth
and an intimacy at the same time.
The day-to night series
is something I started
nine years ago.
I started with a crazy idea,
to compress a single
day into a photograph.
I take pictures from
a single point of
view, usually elevated.
Elevated about 50 feet in the air.
I never move my camera, I just photo
specific moments throughout
the day and night.
When I get back I edit anywhere
from 1200 to 2200 images.
It takes me about a month
to edit them all down.
Then I decide where day
begins and night ends.
That's what I call my time vector.
This is kind of how it works.
In this photograph
day begins on the far
right of the photograph and time
Tracks this way so it
literally goes across.

an amazing rainbow that happens.
This is happening.Right now.
Then this time changes,

Photography has always been
an evolution, part alchemy, part
science, part magic, right?
And luck, really, right?
One of the things which is really
special about this image is
the elephants, that's
one frame, one moment.
I created a photograph
in the Serengeti when I was able to
witness for 26 hours amazing
communication between all these
different competing species
at a water hole.
It felt almost biblical
when I was there.
I felt Noah was about to drop
the arc and load the animals.
It was through that experience
that my work changed.
I saw something in animal
communication that I never
read in a book before
or Scientists never described it.
It is really important,
this is not a time-lapse.
People think I set up a camera,
have a cappuccino and the camera
shoots every 30 seconds.
It does not work that way.
I am hand-cocking
a conventional large lens.
Each time I take a picture,
I'd cock the shutter.
I am just capturing
on a digital back but
everything I do is traditional,
there is no automation.
Essentially I am a street
photographer - from 50
feet in the air and I am
constantly scouring the scene.
I never get bored because I am just
so afraid of missing a

When your name is KFC -
or Kentucky Fried Chicken -
the one thing you really can't
afford to run out of is...chicken.
But that's exactly what happened
to the fast-food chain
KFC at the weekend.
The company had to close around 750
outlets across the UK -
after they ran out of their main
ingredient as Jon Kay reports.
When you've been promised KFC
as a half term treat
but there is no chicken.
Nine-year-old Maxine is not happy.
Are you more hungry or angry?
It's not just Maxine's local outlet.
Hundreds across the UK are shut
because KF has no C.
They've run out of chicken.
Pretty shocking, really, to be fair.
Especially when you're hungry, like,
you know what I mean?
KFC have blamed teething problems
with the new delivery contract.
They switched to DHL last week,
who say operational issues have
disrupted the supply.
It's a chicken place,
so they should have enough chicken.
They should be able to store it.
It's a big chain, so it does seem
All the chicken...
There's farmers, surely
there should be enough chickens.
We tried several outlets
across Bristol today but found no
fingers being licked.
Almost every store closed.
You'd expect these hatches to be
really busy at this point
but the kitchen is empty,
the fryers switched off.
Chicken with fries, please.
Chicken with fries.
It's a far cry from this.
Tonight, the company is encouraging
staff to take holidays until it can
meet the demand again.
KFC says its own employees will be
paid, but the large majority
of restaurants are franchises.
It just seems amazing.
I thought everything was pretty much
automated these days
and as they use chicken,
Something has gone seriously wrong.

Jon Kay, BBC News.
I think the kernel might get
court-martialed for that. I have the
potatoes and coleslaw but missing
the whole point of security
conferences is to talk
about, doom and gloom.
But what made this year's
annual gathering in Munich
according to those who attended,
was the absence of any positive
vision for the future.
Whether it's East Asia,
the Middle East
or even Eastern Europe -
the view at this years conference
was that, there is in fact,
an increased risk of escalation.
Many of the speeches underscored it
- perhaps in some cases,
there was fuel added to the fire.
Israel will not allow Iran's regime
to put a noose of terror around our
neck. We will act without hesitation
to defend ourselves and we will act
if necessary, not just against
Iran's proxies who are attacking us
but against Iran itself.
Let's speak to the Head
of Policy and Analysis
for the Munich Security Conference.
Your tweet said world politics is
worse than if you don't work there.
There are of reasons, I feel that we
have seen a lot of brinkmanship in
recent years. This year's conference
has added fuel to the fire as you
said in the beginning. We have seen
not a lot of constructive proposals.
We have heard some speeches that
were really confrontational. We also
were lacking any constructive
engagement so for instance, you
mentioned eastern Ukraine. The war
is still going on, people are dying
on a weekly if not daily basis. But
France, Russia and Ukraine did not
even meet at the conference. It is
even worse regarding North Korea and
A lot of people will see look
at the United States, perhaps
because there is a different
president with America as the first
priority, is that a factor in this?
Yes of course, that is the big
elephant in the ring. There was a
big delegation from the United
States which tried to reassure the
Europeans. Some of them said please
ignore the tweaks and focus on what
we do, not just what we tweet. In
Munich, the US looks like a
rudderless ship. The crew might be
doing fine but it is not enough if
the captain is... We do not know
what the captain is up to. It is
just not enough and that is the most
worrying trend, what you would call
the traditional guardian of the
Liberal International order, the
United States, and its Western
allies, they just seem overwhelmed,
maybe even paralysed. There are not
that many good proposals. We have

seen that many strategies or ideas
how to overcome the situation.

these conflicts are classical, with

grips with it?
We are trying to
grasp the new age. We had side
events on artificial intelligence
and climate change and also
traditional topics that have come
back at us again, for instance
nuclear issues. We are at the start
of a new nuclear race I think.

Always good to get your

elected with a mandate to do things

will have nothing to do with it.
