Hello, and welcome to Inside Out from Doncaster. This week, we

:00:13.:00:17.

investigate the dark side of the night-time economy in our towns and

cities. A You are going to be coming in. I have told you once.

:00:21.:00:25.

We find out how a Nottinghamshire town is trying to transform its

:00:25.:00:33.

reputation. Also tonight, we visit the

:00:33.:00:36.

Doncaster race in the college training jockeys to use less of the

:00:36.:00:43.

whip, but do the new rules go far enough? You can have races without

:00:43.:00:47.

the whip in Britain and still have all the fun that goes with it.

:00:47.:00:53.

And the polar explorer that no one has heard of. We go on the trail of

massive problems for our town centres, so just as good beaches

town centres that offer better and safer night said. Stuart Woodman

:01:28.:01:35.

has been to Mansfield, which is hoping to add its flag.

:01:35.:01:43.

For many, the weekend is just about one thing, a big night out. But how

:01:43.:01:47.

safe are our pubs, clubs, Penzance cities every Friday and Saturday

:01:47.:01:53.

night? -- towns and cities. This town has had its problems, bar

:01:53.:01:58.

brawls, street assaults and even a nightclub death have all marred the

:01:58.:02:03.

reputation of Mansfield's nightlife. A recent report highlighted this

:02:04.:02:08.

town as having a drinking problem. The highest numbers of alcohol

:02:17.:02:21.

girls in blue on one of the busiest nights of the year and we are in

:02:21.:02:25.

for a rough ride. You are going to be coming in, I have told you once,

I were to tell you again. cannot walk around Mansfield

smoking cannabis. Before I spend an evening with the police, I want to

:02:34.:02:39.

discover for myself this town's darkest hour. The Mid North Tees, a

:02:39.:02:45.

time when serious incidents were happening most weekends and some

:02:45.:02:51.

involved doorstep as well as customers -- the mid- 2000s. Sandra

:02:51.:02:55.

lost her son Paul Stephens in a Mansfield club that has now closed

:02:55.:03:05.

down. They said he had no brain activity and we had to turn up the

:03:05.:03:12.

machine off. You have to make that decision, didn't you? The incident

:03:12.:03:17.

happened as Paul was being evicted from the club. His death sparked a

:03:17.:03:22.

major police investigation, but the arrest of two bouncers. But the

:03:22.:03:27.

evidence was inconclusive and no charges were ever brought. I got an

:03:27.:03:31.

open verdict and I have been trying for three years to try and get

:03:31.:03:35.

justice for Paul, and I just can't get enough evidence. People will

:03:35.:03:43.

not talk about it and somebody must have seemed something that night. -

:03:43.:03:48.

- seen something. Whatever happened, it ended in tragedy, and Paul

Stephens isn't the only person to lose his life on a night out in

Mansfield. Now the police and authorities are fighting back to

try and make the town's safer. know how busy it is on a Saturday

:04:01.:04:05.

night, tonight will be busy. It is the Saturday before Christmas and

:04:05.:04:08.

it is expected to be one of the busiest and most boisterous night

:04:08.:04:13.

of the year. I am meeting the man in charge of policing tonight.

:04:13.:04:19.

It is pretty early on, 830, and it is quite quiet, but Mansfield Town

:04:19.:04:23.

said there isn't a particularly pleasant place for families on a

:04:23.:04:28.

Saturday night, is it? -- town centre. There isn't much for

:04:28.:04:31.

families. Most of the premises are deer that what we call vertical

:04:31.:04:37.

drinking, so it is aimed more at the 18-35 age group. It is very

:04:37.:04:44.

much beer as a party venue and for us, this is bad issue -- very much

:04:44.:04:50.

targeted. Is sometimes quite -- get quite a few fights but that's as

:04:50.:04:54.

normally sorted out. If you don't listen to me, you get direction to

:04:54.:05:00.

leave and if you carry on, you get arrested. Let me out! What I used

:05:00.:05:07.

wearing out before? I'm trying to speak to you. Do not kick the Van!

:05:07.:05:12.

Show was been pretty abusive, why didn't you arrest her -- she was?

:05:12.:05:17.

We could have, but we have to look at the ways of disposal. She

:05:17.:05:21.

started to calm down the bed, we gave her a section 27th direction

:05:21.:05:26.

to leave -- dead a bit. We might need that sell later on for a more

:05:27.:05:33.

violent prisoner. We will be back on the beat shortly. A day erection

:05:33.:05:38.

to leave this simply means sending someone home -- a direction to

:05:38.:05:44.

leave. If they are spoken to a game that night, they will be arrested.

:05:44.:05:48.

This is one method of dealing with problem drinkers affected it. A

:05:48.:05:52.

more serious device is a drinking banning orders. After a number of

:05:52.:05:58.

incidents, look price was named and shamed when he received the town's

:05:58.:06:01.

first drinking banning orders. And the ironic thing is he lives in a

:06:01.:06:06.

pub. The it was embarrassing for me and my family. It was big news, I

:06:06.:06:12.

live in a pub and I am banned from pubs. So that is the worst thing

:06:12.:06:18.

about it. Do you think those banning orders work? Yes, it is

:06:18.:06:22.

always at the back of your mind that you don't want to be caught --

:06:22.:06:26.

and causing trouble, because if you get caught, say in Mansfield in my

:06:26.:06:32.

case, you get to �2,500 fine or even a prison sentence. I don't

:06:32.:06:36.

want to go back there and cause trouble, I want to change. I have

:06:36.:06:41.

learned our lesson. Back in town, it is well after midnight and the

:06:41.:06:44.

police have their hands full. They are dealing with a possible assault

:06:44.:06:49.

on a bus. We need to get a statement from you

:06:49.:06:57.

about the assault. An incident involving -- has turned

:06:57.:07:02.

nasty and it is while they were dealing with another incident that

around a cameraman took a random hit. -- our own cameraman. There

:07:08.:07:12.

was a man in a pub being over boisterous, pushing into people,

:07:12.:07:16.

and outside, one of the guys he was pushing into has hit the other guy,

:07:16.:07:20.

and then I think the same what has hit the cameraman. Who knows

:07:20.:07:26.

exactly? We were out with the police until dawn. Over the last

:07:26.:07:29.

few years, the crime statistics claimed to show things have

:07:29.:07:34.

improved, but there is clearly some way to go.

:07:34.:07:38.

Before we end the night, I am meeting at cancer LAT Nick Barton,

who fought hard to cause -- close one chaotic club -- cancer laugh.

:07:43.:07:48.

This place has a sad history, it is where Paul Stephens lost his life,

:07:48.:07:51.

and then reopened as another club and problems continued. What was

:07:51.:07:56.

going on here? It was brought to our attention by the police, there

tolerate any misgivings with licences. Mansfield is safer than

:08:15.:08:20.

:09:06.:09:10.

assault of the night led to three men being arrested and bailed

the most of Mansfield's Night Live. The future is very positive. It is

:09:37.:09:41.

going to have its challenges, but with all of the agencies and all of

:09:41.:09:44.

the partners working with the police and the council, before too

:09:44.:09:49.

long, hopefully families can come out into Mansfield as well. But not

:10:10.:10:14.

The crisis in the horse racing industry over the amount of times a

:10:14.:10:17.

jockey can use a whip has thrown the spotlight on what's acceptable

:10:17.:10:24.

when racing for the line. Insiders hope new rules will go

:10:24.:10:28.

some way to silent the cricket. We sent Johnny Nelson to meet the

:10:28.:10:34.

latest batch of young jockeys carrying out their training in

:10:34.:10:39.

Doncaster. It's early morning at the Northern

:10:39.:10:42.

Racing College near Doncaster and some of the latest raw recruits are

:10:42.:10:47.

getting ready for their first taste of life in the saddle. The horses

:10:47.:10:50.

they're about to try and control are all ex-racing veterans, and for

:10:50.:10:52.

18-year-old Keiron Scofield and 17- year-old Christie Northall, the

:10:52.:10:58.

next few weeks could make or break them. If you fill the bouncer the

:10:58.:11:05.

saddle? That is it, good. That balance. It is what we like to do.

:11:05.:11:10.

Hopefully I can be a jockey. These are the chosen few. There are only

:11:10.:11:14.

two racing colleges in the country which can grant licences to jockeys.

:11:14.:11:17.

Jumper, excellent. And although not all will go on to ride

:11:17.:11:20.

professionally, Keiron and Christie are among those who see this as

:11:20.:11:26.

their ticket to fame and fortune. But for these youngsters, they are

:11:26.:11:32.

riding into an uncertain future. First, they begin their trading and

:11:32.:11:36.

the new measures have been introduced about how many times a

professional jockey can join a whip. -- used. The training starts with

:11:42.:11:45.

an introduction into how to look after a horse, combining practical

:11:45.:11:50.

experience with theory and lectures. What other health and safety

:11:50.:11:54.

requirements you need to remember... Kieron is among the 30% of students

:11:54.:11:57.

who have never ridden before coming here, while Christie has wanted to

:11:57.:12:01.

work with horses since she was three. By friends were rarely

:12:01.:12:06.

behind me on it. -- my friends. They said we used to joke about you

:12:06.:12:10.

being the right size to be a jockey, you should go into the racing

:12:10.:12:15.

industry. And I said I was, and they were asking if I were sure,

:12:15.:12:19.

could I control them? I said I would be fine with it and they are

:12:19.:12:23.

really happy for me. For May, it is not about money, it is a passion

:12:23.:12:28.

for horses and the thrill of it. The money is a bonus. When you

:12:28.:12:31.

watch it on the television and you are saying all of the horses

together going at full pelt, you But they know that a huge part of

:12:39.:12:42.

their job will be learning how to keep whatever horse they are riding

:12:42.:12:47.

under control. The use of the whip has become a flashpoint at the

:12:47.:12:50.

sharp end of racing. A people leave it is a cruel and unjust way of

:12:51.:12:56.

exerting control. If you're planning to head to the

:12:56.:13:00.

races at Windsor next treaty, you could miss out. Several jockeys are

:13:01.:13:05.

threatening to withdraw at -- in protest at new rules over using the

:13:05.:13:09.

whip. At the end of last year, the sport was thrown in to turmoil. A

:13:09.:13:13.

row erupted over the excessive use of the whip by the winner of the

:13:13.:13:16.

Grand National. Then, in October, rules were changed which meant the

:13:16.:13:19.

maximum amount of times a jockey could use the whip were reduced to

:13:19.:13:24.

eight. There are some people who want to cede their whip ban from

:13:24.:13:29.

racing altogether. Oh what we would like to see is a ban on the whip as

:13:29.:13:34.

in Norway, the band the whip in 1982. British jockeys can quite

:13:34.:13:39.

happily Rideout in Norway and still win races. We're saying he could do

:13:39.:13:44.

that in Britain and still have all the fund that goes with it. It is

:13:44.:13:46.

an argument which the racing industry rejects, claiming the whip

:13:46.:13:51.

is essential for safety. Is it cruel? Et can be. It has the

:13:51.:13:55.

potential to be cool, when it is used with excessive force or

:13:55.:14:00.

excessive frequency. If it is used for at their purposes it is

:14:00.:14:08.

designed, the safety of duck rider and horse, then it is not cruel.

:14:08.:14:11.

Back at Doncaster, they know the future of the industry rests on

:14:11.:14:14.

their shoulders. Before they are handed any whip, they have to learn

:14:14.:14:18.

to control a horse using hands and heels and today, a month into their

:14:18.:14:21.

course, comes a major test. It is their first time riding out on the

:14:21.:14:29.

gallops. We what makes a good jockey? Horsemanship. It is not

:14:29.:14:32.

about being a good rider, it is about horsemanship in general. The

conditions. You have to think on your feet. He detrain to control

:14:45.:14:52.

:14:52.:14:57.

is not about strength. It is more technique on how to ride one, by

:14:57.:15:06.

utilising your body weight. It gave him some rain. With the experience

:15:06.:15:09.

on the gallops under their belts, Christie and Keiron are ready to

:15:09.:15:12.

move on. Under the guidance of ex- champion jockey Kevin Darley, they

:15:12.:15:15.

head for the simulator room and their first lesson on the using the

:15:15.:15:21.

whip. I have come along to date to get you a little bit of inside

:15:21.:15:25.

knowledge about how to use the whip, when to use it and out the use it

:15:25.:15:30.

correctly. The simulator enables the youngsters to learn about

:15:30.:15:34.

controlling the horse without any risk of falling off. If you hit it

:15:34.:15:38.

without showing it at the whip, it is more inclined to duck away from

:15:38.:15:43.

it. Always make sure you're showing it at first, then a quick

:15:43.:15:53.
:15:53.:15:53.

backhander. And then put it down. The emphasis it is on using it with

:15:54.:15:58.

a restrained. It is not a magic tool. It will not make him find

:15:58.:16:03.

something they cannot. If you use it and it is not appropriate and

:16:03.:16:09.

you feel them backing off for not liking it, then put it back down.

:16:09.:16:12.

First in the saddle is Kieron, who gets his introduction from a

:16:12.:16:17.

standing start. Slide your hand up an inch, change your hand over, a

:16:17.:16:23.

flight down the shoulder. That is it. Do it again. That is correct.

:16:23.:16:28.

Now pitted prettier left. That is it. Hands on the reins, a little

:16:28.:16:33.

flick in the shoulder. At this stage, the juniors are learning

:16:33.:16:36.

about using the whip on the shoulder and soon Christie is given

:16:36.:16:46.
:16:46.:16:50.

a chance to shine. I wanted to shorten your rein. Well, these two

:16:50.:16:53.

appear to have got the basics right and pretty soon, I'm next on the

:16:53.:17:03.
:17:03.:17:08.

list. Are you ready to have walked? Yes. I'm lucky to have ridden I am

:17:08.:17:15.

lucky enough to have ridden several times before. A but had never done

:17:15.:17:20.

anything like this before. But you can imagine going 40 mph and doing

:17:20.:17:25.

it again. My legs are killing me! It is not easy, and I am a fit

:17:25.:17:30.

person. The experience has given our trainees plenty of food for

:17:30.:17:37.

thought too. I did not realise it swapping it in a race would be so

:17:37.:17:40.

difficult, but also hitting the horse in the right place because

:17:40.:17:45.

you do not want to hurt a horse. what is not just used for making a

:17:45.:17:48.

horse go faster. Hitting it on the shoulder is getting it back in line

:17:48.:17:53.

to focus on what it is doing. I had no idea that was supposed to do

:17:53.:17:57.

that. They will need plenty more practice on the simulator before

:17:57.:18:00.

gaining their licence and it is this which Kevin sees as the key to

:18:00.:18:05.

changing perceptions. It may in fact agreed a better kind of jockey,

:18:05.:18:09.

because they will have to be that little bit more fatter, they cannot

:18:09.:18:12.

rely on this thing all the time. They will have to be restricted

:18:12.:18:17.

when the use it. Long-term, it will be better for the sport. I know

:18:17.:18:21.

some professionals that have watched races recently and said

:18:21.:18:25.

looking at the sport now, it looks a lot better. The proof in the

:18:25.:18:29.

pudding will be in the eating, Windows lads and lasses are out

:18:29.:18:39.
:18:39.:18:41.

there riding horses. Whatever Dijon trainees decide to do within the

:18:41.:18:44.

industry, they know that the welfare of the horse is the main

:18:44.:18:50.

priority. The horses come first. We come second. If the horses are not

:18:50.:18:59.

fed, we should not be fed. We get up at 6:30am to feed the horses.

:18:59.:19:03.

We're in the industry for the horses, not for us. A at the end of

:19:03.:19:06.

the day, the horse will be carrying you and if you do not treated with

:19:06.:19:10.

respect, it will not treat you with respect. It knows that you will not

:19:10.:19:15.

take care of it. Their three months here are nearly up and soon they

:19:15.:19:18.

will be heading out to a racing stables to further develop their

In this country, we have a long history of Antarctic exploration

:19:29.:19:35.

and we know at -- we know a great deal about the expertise --

:19:35.:19:38.

expeditions of Scott and Shackleton. But there is a Sanctus from here in

Yorkshire who is less well known. Our reporter has been on the trail

survive. What was it about growing up in Normanton that prepared

:20:29.:20:32.

Trevor's story begins in Normanton. The kind of place where, if there

:20:32.:20:35.

was anything out of the ordinary, you'd know about it. So Richard

:20:35.:20:45.
:20:45.:20:50.

here got a surprise when he started doing some family history. But when

:20:50.:20:54.

he looked up one cousin, Trevor, he drew a blank. There's a record of

:20:54.:20:57.

him being born, and nothing more. Subsequently, I found some

:20:57.:20:59.

passenger records from a couple of ships coming back into the country,

:20:59.:21:08.

from New Zealand. Trevor appeared to be on these lists. So, I decided

:21:08.:21:15.

to look a little further into it to see if it was the same person. A

:21:15.:21:18.

looked him up on the computer and that threw him up as being a famous

:21:18.:21:25.

scientist. And not just that. He had explored the Antarctic. Headed

moved away to New Zealand. It might have been that nobody ever talked

:21:34.:21:44.
:21:44.:21:49.

about it. Right, time to turn detective. Trevor was born here,

:21:49.:21:52.

there must be someone around to tell us why he went to New Zealand

:21:52.:21:57.

and are not down a pit. Have you heard of Trevor Hatherton? I have

:21:57.:22:03.

not. Why has no one heard of them? I do not know. We are up against it

:22:03.:22:08.

in Normanton. Nobody has heard of Trevor Hatherton. The pit where his

:22:08.:22:16.

dad worked has gone now. The school when he went as all its records --

:22:16.:22:20.

College records were burnt in a fire. At last, there is someone

:22:20.:22:24.

that remembers him. An old school friend. He must have been a year

:22:24.:22:29.

above me. You can know what was only one year, he was very much an

:22:29.:22:37.

adult and look up to. He was quite hall, as I remember. He has and

:22:56.:23:00.

does not explain how and why he went the other end of the world.

:23:00.:23:04.

But, thanks to the magical technology, we have made contact

:23:04.:23:09.

with Trevor's daughter in New Zealand. OK, the sound quality is a

:23:09.:23:15.

bit ropey, but she is able to fill us in. As a young boy, he read

:23:15.:23:23.

about Scott. He read about Shackleton. I think it fired his

:23:23.:23:27.

imagination. He decided, I think, when he was quite young that he

:23:27.:23:35.

would like to get to the Antarctic. Trevor wasn't the right place at

:23:35.:23:45.
:23:45.:23:50.

the right time. 1957. The IGY. greatest scientific effort to

:23:50.:23:54.

record that fact of her world will commence tonight. The biggest

:23:54.:23:57.

scientific project the world had ever seen, 10,000 scientists from

:23:57.:24:05.

57 countries. And Trevor. A lot of it was it a global picture of the

:24:05.:24:09.

Earth system. We take it for granted now that we had scientific

:24:09.:24:13.

data that we know what is happening across the whole planet. At that

:24:13.:24:23.
:24:23.:24:27.

time there were Spurs measures, but to no global measures. - sparse. It

:24:27.:24:31.

you may think that 22 bases in the Antarctic would make for cred, but

:24:31.:24:36.

there are only 700 men there and are content half as big again as

:24:36.:24:41.

Europe. A Trevor was part of one of the biggest IGY projects, an

:24:41.:24:47.

expedition across Antarctica led by Sir Ed Hillary and Dr Vivian Fuchs.

:24:47.:24:52.

Tell me, what is the total distance across the Antarctic? Of the total

:24:52.:24:57.

distance is around 2,000 miles but there was little diversion and we

:24:57.:25:04.

have got -- we may have little more. That is rather a long way! So the

:25:04.:25:06.

British team will want to start from here and at the New Zealand

:25:06.:25:13.

team there were to start from there. Richard has found some archive film

:25:13.:25:21.

of Trevor's first trip. Some 95 miles long. There were sometimes

:25:21.:25:26.

when it was quite a pleasure to pool these along. That is obviously

:25:26.:25:34.

Trevor. With the Yorkshire accent. This time we stopped to take on

:25:34.:25:39.

this for her water tanks. This is quite possibly a shot of him. It

:25:39.:25:46.

made you feel cold just to watch it. It does. You get an idea of his

:25:46.:25:51.

dark it must have been. I could get there these days, but then it was

:25:51.:26:00.

new territory for most of people. It was almost like space. A Yes.

:26:00.:26:04.

Whilst Hillary struck out for the Pole, Trevor's role was to lead a

:26:04.:26:07.

team of scientists who would build a base in Antarctica and stay there

:26:07.:26:12.

throughout the winter, making observations. It was a difficult

:26:12.:26:15.

mission. Trevor and his colleagues are revered by modern day Polar

:26:15.:26:25.
:26:25.:26:26.

scientists. The people aboard were very extraordinary. And in the

:26:27.:26:30.

1930s, they are less equipment, less a ship and aircraft support,

:26:30.:26:39.

those men were absolutely brilliant. Across the bedding planes and huge

:26:39.:26:43.

mountains, they had reached the South Pole. Staying at the base for

:26:51.:26:56.

party on the other side of the Continent. Trevor stayed in the

:26:56.:26:59.

Antarctic until 1958. He went on to edit what became the definitive

:26:59.:27:06.

book about Antarctica, Antarctica. He got an OBE, and a Polar Medal,

:27:06.:27:13.

and they named an Antarctic glacier after him. And all being well, he

:27:13.:27:16.

is finally going to get his name known in his birthplace. Richard's

:27:16.:27:20.

started a campaign to get a blue plaque put up for Trevor. He's

:27:20.:27:26.

getting a lot of support. People who had Robin Whitfield, made their

:27:26.:27:31.

name here, we tend to know that. But people who move away and but

:27:31.:27:36.

further afield, it was a surprise and are delighted to find out about

:27:36.:27:41.

him. Hillary and Fuchs made the headlines back in the day, but it

:27:41.:27:45.

is the work done by Trevor and his mates that has lasted and is still

:27:45.:27:51.

being used by scientists today. News LA people were so dedicated

:27:51.:27:57.

and committed. All those winters in the Antarctic, remote and difficult.

:27:57.:28:01.

Trevor was one of those men that without his work, will be would not

:28:01.:28:05.

understand the planet that we do today. He it is important that this

community know about Trevor, somebody who is the son of a minor

from the Antarctic. A long way. If you want to contact us about any
