the basic market reality. Hiring one worker in the states,

whether one of the most vital and complex bilateral relationships

:05:31.:05:33.

but we did get some clarity this week on Britain's plans for Brexit

:05:34.:06:23.

as Theresa May announced her 12-point plan, including a pledge

:06:24.:06:26.

to leave the single market. The Prime Minister insisted that

:06:27.:06:28.

people were coming together, but she also acknowledged just how

for the Prime Minister's speech, More than one in ten people

it's 60s dance work out. The project is largely EU-funded,

:06:59.:07:02.

but most here voted Brexit. Many worried about levels

of immigration and the The worry is we might lose

some trade with Europe What do you think

:07:07.:07:12.

about that trade off? The trade off, I think,

:07:13.:07:15.

will be worth it because I think Britain's big enough to take

care of itself. It's Great Britain -

it always has been, Outside Boston, the

agricultural heartland. Many crops being prepared today

will need migrant workers Within the industry we need labour

:07:29.:07:30.

and without it we will starve. What would you say to Theresa May

:07:31.:07:34.

then in terms of what you need I am hoping from this that she's

:07:35.:07:38.

going to allow skills and labour to be filled in the farming

surprised by the outcome of the vote, but Theresa May has

outlined today is what the country And I think we need clear

leadership to make sure that Not everyone here

:08:05.:08:08.

is quite as relaxed. I don't think we realise

:08:09.:08:10.

how bad it is yet. Do you think we're any clearer

:08:11.:08:13.

tonight, after Theresa May's speech, Essentially, her message

:08:14.:08:15.

was the same - Brexit means Brexit. But we still don't really

:08:16.:08:20.

know what it means! For the Prime Minister then,

:08:21.:08:22.

Brexit remains the greatest of political challenges,

:08:23.:08:24.

in this still divided nation. Finally, if you like sushi,

:08:25.:08:26.

you're going to love this. We're going to take you now

:08:27.:08:30.

to the world's biggest fish market, the legendary

:08:31.:08:32.

Tsukiji Fish Centre in Japan. It supplies Tokyo's finest sushi

:08:33.:08:34.

restaurants as well as the general public, but it's being closed down

:08:35.:08:37.

and being moved to a bigger, more modern site, and,

:08:38.:08:40.

as Rupert Wingfield-Hayes reports, many people are not

:08:41.:08:42.

too happy about it. It's 5.00am in the morning

:08:43.:08:43.

inside the world's biggest fish market and the tuna auctions

:08:44.:08:46.

are under way. This is the first auction

:08:47.:08:48.

of 2017 and the prices This is going to be the last

:08:49.:08:51.

new year auction held in Tsukiji perhaps ever because this market

:08:52.:08:55.

supposed to close and over here, if you come over here, you can see,

:08:56.:09:15.

you can see through here, These are the fish that

:09:16.:09:18.

are 200-250 kilos. These are the ones that might

:09:19.:09:23.

reach record prices. The current record for one

:09:24.:09:26.

fish here, $1.7 million. Tsukiji Market is like no

:09:27.:09:28.

other, vast and chaotic. On a good day, 60,000 people bustle

:09:29.:09:32.

through this maze of alleys shops, but soon all of this will be gone,

the buildings demolished, This man's family have been trading

tuna since the days of the Shogun. In Tsukiji, I'm the third generation

:09:39.:09:51.

and we are doing this business So what we feel is,

:09:52.:09:54.

we built this place. I mean, Tsukiji, it's

:09:55.:09:57.

not built by someone. Actually, we make the history

:09:58.:09:59.

in this place, but why The meat from this 200 kilo monster

:10:00.:10:01.

will go to the top sushi But fish like this are

:10:02.:10:07.

getting hard to find. In the Pacific and Atlantic stocks

:10:08.:10:10.

of bluefin tuna have The frozen one is just

:10:11.:10:13.

1,000 or less each day and the fresh one is like 300,

:10:14.:10:16.

200, sometimes 100 or less. So we don't have enough

:10:17.:10:19.

fish to sell, actually. Do you worry about the

:10:20.:10:28.

future of the industry? Maybe it's going to be

:10:29.:10:35.

like the whale, it could be. This new year the top bid went

:10:36.:10:42.

for this 210 kilo bluefin, $632,000. Critics say publicity stunts

:10:43.:10:45.

like this ignore the fact that these Rupert Wingfield-Hayes, BBC News,
