The 2016 Olympics are about to get underway in Brazil with the opening

:00:00.3:59:59

ceremony in Rio just hours away. That's all from the BBC News at Six

:00:00.:00:00.

- so it's goodbye from me - We'll be looking at why

it's still losing money 53 Scots are competing in Rio

:00:10.:00:19.

over the next fortnight. Edinburgh's international

in the Premiership. And as a celebration

:00:41.:00:46.

of motor-sport in Glasgow, RBS lost ?2 billion

caught it makes ?1 billion of profit before tax. And year-on-year we get

:02:48.:02:53.

hit by legacy issues. For example, this time, 400 million of PPI. We

:02:54.:02:59.

are looking at a 2008 rights issue, when we issued capital into the

:03:00.:03:02.

market and people are saying it was not done well. Those issues are

:03:03.:03:03.

plaguing us. The aim was to be fully recovered

:03:04.:03:05.

three years from now - but that looks ambitious given

:03:06.:03:08.

the uncertainty about Britain's economic future as it prepares

:03:09.:03:10.

to leave the European Union. RBS says big corporate clients

:03:11.:03:12.

are delaying investment decisions, And if wider economic growth does

:03:13.:03:15.

slow down, as expected, it's going to to be harder

:03:16.:03:23.

for RBS to hit its targets, meaning yet more cost-cutting

:03:24.:03:26.

would be likely. The Olympic Games in Rio start

:03:27.:03:41.

officially later tonight when the opening ceremony gets

:03:42.:03:43.

underway. Scotland's Andy Murray

:03:44.:03:45.

is the Team GB flag bearer, a task he says is bigger

:03:46.:03:48.

than winning any tournament. Our reporter Jane Lewis is outside

:03:49.:03:50.

the Maracana Stadium. Yes, absolutely, a real sense of

:03:51.:04:09.

occasion. Behind me, it looks magnificent, the famous Maracana

:04:10.:04:12.

Stadium. Famous for football, but tonight it will host the opening

:04:13.:04:17.

ceremony of the 31st Olympic Games in Rio. The action starts at 8pm

:04:18.:04:25.

local time. Midnight, on the BBC, if you want to stay up late, which I am

:04:26.:04:29.

sure you will because it will be some show. Five years in the making.

:04:30.:04:36.

Various dress rehearsals over the last few days. Not the same budget

:04:37.:04:41.

as London 2012 but we are told it will be full of heart and grace. It

:04:42.:04:46.

will be a carnival reflecting life in Rio, the culture of Brazil. Lots

:04:47.:04:51.

of colour and lots of dance and music, I would imagine. If the dress

:04:52.:04:56.

rehearsal is anything to go by. After the entertainment, all of the

:04:57.:05:01.

attention will fall on the athletes as they come out and are introduced

:05:02.:05:06.

to the waiting crowd. It will be a special Mike Andy Murray who is

:05:07.:05:11.

leading Team GB out this evening. -- a special night for Andy Murray.

:05:12.:05:19.

Bigger than winning a tournament. Personally, I have never felt that

:05:20.:05:25.

proud before. I know how I have felt after big tournaments, and this was

:05:26.:05:32.

very, very different. I am really looking forward to it. I am sure it

:05:33.:05:36.

will be a night I will never forget. I can't wait. I am sure he will

:05:37.:05:45.

remember it. He will be leading out 70 British athletes out of a team of

:05:46.:05:49.

306 because the swimmers and rowers are in action tomorrow and will be

:05:50.:05:53.

in bed, and the track and field athletes are not here yet. But it

:05:54.:05:57.

will be an amazing night for Andy Murray. He could be rubbing

:05:58.:06:00.

shoulders with one of the world's best footballers in Pele, who we

:06:01.:06:06.

understand has been asked to light the Olympic torch this evening, the

:06:07.:06:11.

Olympic flame, I should say. We do not know if he will do it, but it

:06:12.:06:16.

would be some occasion if he was to light the Olympic flame. But the

:06:17.:06:20.

stadium is ready for tonight was Mike opening ceremony.

:06:21.:06:24.

Four people are in the running to replace Stewart Hosie as deputy

:06:25.:06:27.

leader of the Scottish National Party.

:06:28.:06:28.

Nominations closed this morning and party members

:06:29.:06:30.

will cast their votes in late September.

:06:31.:06:32.

Glenn Campbell has been meeting the candidates.

:06:33.:06:39.

The most high-profile contender is Angus Robertson, who lives in his

:06:40.:06:47.

whiskey making Murray constituency on the banks of the River Spey. He

:06:48.:06:55.

has been an MP since 2001. He is already the SNP's Westminster group

:06:56.:07:00.

leader, and a member of Parliament's intelligence and Security Committee.

:07:01.:07:05.

At a turbulent time in politics, he is offering experience and reach. We

:07:06.:07:10.

have two represent the whole of Scotland which is why I think a

:07:11.:07:14.

balanced leadership ticket between Nicola Sturgeon in central Scotland,

:07:15.:07:18.

representing Glasgow, and myself as an MP in the North of Scotland, that

:07:19.:07:22.

balance is a good thing. The mail- female ticket is a good thing, and

:07:23.:07:28.

having a track record people can look at is important, too. Among his

:07:29.:07:33.

rivals, Tommy Sheppard, elected MP for Edinburgh East last year. This

:07:34.:07:40.

one-time Scottish Labour Party general secretary came to the SNP

:07:41.:07:42.

through the independence referendum campaign. He wants to give

:07:43.:07:47.

grassroots members a bigger voice and build support for independence.

:07:48.:07:52.

The most important thing for me is that the SNP needs to play a big

:07:53.:07:54.

part in this but we also need to that the SNP needs to play a big

:07:55.:07:59.

constantly, as big as we are, we need to reach out beyond our

:08:00.:08:03.

membership and involve other people. Because the Yes campaign, if it

:08:04.:08:07.

comes, will not be won by the SNP by itself. We need a big Alliance, a

:08:08.:08:12.

big movement that represents most of public opinion in Scotland. Next,

:08:13.:08:18.

Alan Smith, a member of the European Parliament for 12 years. He has a

:08:19.:08:23.

Scotland- wide constituency and sees himself as a sort of Scottish

:08:24.:08:29.

ambassador to the EU. Please, I beg you, do not let Scotland down now.

:08:30.:08:36.

As deputy leader, he thinks he would win more than over Asians for

:08:37.:08:41.

Scotland in Europe, as the UK negotiates its exit. I have shown

:08:42.:08:47.

what I can deliver in Brussels and in Europe and putting Scotland on

:08:48.:08:50.

the map in Europe is vital. As deputy leader I would have heft and

:08:51.:08:53.

it would underline to the people of Scotland and SNP members that we

:08:54.:08:58.

choose Europe as our future, where Westminster is our past. The final

:08:59.:09:03.

candidate is in Inverclyde Council who want Scotland to become an

:09:04.:09:07.

independent socialist republic, and once the party to develop new

:09:08.:09:12.

policies shaped by the membership. He would especially like more tax

:09:13.:09:17.

paid by the better off. I don't think the people earning the lowest

:09:18.:09:21.

in society, that struggle to get by, should pay more tax. They pay

:09:22.:09:25.

enough. But the people who earn the most in society, they should have a

:09:26.:09:30.

greater share of the burden of the tax base. Those earning over

:09:31.:09:37.

?150,000 should pay a 50% tax rate. Nicola Sturgeon's current deputy,

:09:38.:09:42.

Stewart Hosie, is standing down following controversy in his private

:09:43.:09:47.

life. More than 100,000 SNP members are entitled to vote for their new

:09:48.:09:52.

deputy leader. The ballot starts towards the end of next month, with

:09:53.:09:57.

the winner announced at the SNP conference here in Glasgow on

:09:58.:09:58.

October 13. Edinburgh's international festival

:09:59.:10:03.

and Fringe are under way. The two festivals -

:10:04.:10:05.

now in their 69th year - are together staging thousands

:10:06.:10:08.

of shows over the next three weeks. Our arts correspondent

:10:09.:10:10.

Pauline McLean joins us now from one of the 294 Fringe venues that have

:10:11.:10:13.

opened across the capital. Sally, this used to be the vet

:10:14.:10:31.

school in Edinburgh, and now the classrooms and lecture halls are

:10:32.:10:36.

147 shows at this venue, eight arts 147 shows at this venue, eight arts

:10:37.:10:41.

-- art exhibitions as well. That sounds a lot at this is one of

:10:42.:10:47.

nearly 300 venues across the city. So if you start multiplying that,

:10:48.:10:51.

you realise why this is officially the world's biggest arts festival.

:10:52.:10:56.

Why? Because it is open access. All you need to do is bring your show

:10:57.:10:59.

and find a space in which to perform. And all across the city,

:11:00.:11:06.

people have been doing exactly that. You don't need a theatre, just a

:11:07.:11:09.

corner of Edinburgh in which to pitch your tent. Welcome to venue

:11:10.:11:15.

91, one of most 300 across the city, where students from Bristol are

:11:16.:11:19.

telling one of the many stories of refugees in Europe. We need to keep

:11:20.:11:25.

the balance of the boat. If those people start moving, or doing

:11:26.:11:31.

something, it can collapse. In my heart, it feels I need to tell the

:11:32.:11:36.

story. Coming to the biggest arts festival, where people are open to

:11:37.:11:39.

engaging with theatre and staff is very important. I thought, if I am

:11:40.:11:45.

going to do it, I might as well go all out. Six eyes, three toes. The

:11:46.:11:52.

open access nature means that anything goes, from serious issues

:11:53.:11:57.

to downright silliness. Most stand-up comics, the EU referendum

:11:58.:12:02.

was an obvious starting point. I wish I had a passion for cheese

:12:03.:12:05.

because I think it would be a lot more fun. It would be a lot more fun

:12:06.:12:11.

to do an hour of comedy about cheese and hats. But I write jokes about

:12:12.:12:16.

things that interest me. What interests me, unfortunately, his

:12:17.:12:21.

politics. It's not surprising to find politics being discussed, since

:12:22.:12:25.

the International Festival and Fringe began in 1947, as a way of

:12:26.:12:29.

uniting Europe after the Second World War. After the summer, people

:12:30.:12:34.

are talking about our relationship with Europe and the world. Where

:12:35.:12:38.

better to have that conversation than in a city where you will have

:12:39.:12:43.

people from every nation looking at shows which provoked discussion, and

:12:44.:12:48.

just having fun together as well? So the initial intention of the

:12:49.:12:51.

festival was to reunite Europe at the end of the Second World War, and

:12:52.:12:57.

so to a degree, although perhaps not in such tragic circumstances, we are

:12:58.:13:06.

revisiting those ideas. For the next three weeks, everyone

:13:07.:13:12.

is talking and singing and dancing in any available space across the

:13:13.:13:19.

city. And of course, this is the biggest

:13:20.:13:23.

festival but not the only one. There are events across the month of

:13:24.:13:27.

August. People will be watching the Edinburgh military Tattoo every

:13:28.:13:31.

night. And the castle is the focus for a free open-air event on Sunday

:13:32.:13:34.

night to mark the start of the Edinburgh International Festival. It

:13:35.:13:39.

is called deep time, and it will be staged on and around Edinburgh rock.

:13:40.:13:44.

We expect over 20,000 people to come to that. We hope to bring you

:13:45.:13:46.

coverage next week. After 20 weeks of disruption,

:13:47.:13:49.

engineering work on Glasgow's Queen Street tunnel has been completed,

:13:50.:13:52.

with rail services set The transport minister today

:13:53.:13:54.

tightened the final bolt on the new track bed,

:13:55.:13:59.

which has been lowered to allow the installation

:14:00.:14:01.

of overhead electric lines. The work enables the introduction

:14:02.:14:05.

next autumn of faster trains This is a huge project, 10,000

:14:06.:14:21.

tonnes of concrete, almost 3000 people working on the project. 20

:14:22.:14:25.

weeks of disruption for passengers, but I am delighted that we are

:14:26.:14:29.

opening before time, ahead of schedule and under budget. The

:14:30.:14:32.

opening before time, ahead of perseverance and patience that

:14:33.:14:37.

passengers have shown will hopefully mean faster journey times and a

:14:38.:14:40.

train station that is fit for the 21st-century.

:14:41.:14:42.

Three men who used explosives to steal money from cash machines

:14:43.:14:50.

Three young girls from Shetland are in the limelight

:14:51.:14:52.

They're playing a central role in the marketing

:14:53.:14:55.

of the Alexander McQueen autumn-winter collection.

:14:56.:14:57.

It is hard to imagine a greater contrast. Shetland is a long way

:14:58.:15:09.

from the glamour and glitz of the international fashion world. At

:15:10.:15:12.

least, usually. On this occasion, the islands have been placed at the

:15:13.:15:16.

heart of the latest campaign by the international fashion house

:15:17.:15:20.

Alexander McQueen. And these three young schoolgirls have been plucked

:15:21.:15:24.

from relative obscurity and put in front of the cameras, alongside an

:15:25.:15:34.

Argentinian supermodel. Meet 15-year-old Lily, and her sisters,

:15:35.:15:38.

13-year-old Daisy and 11-year-old Emily. This is what they do at home.

:15:39.:15:43.

And this is how the fashion world will see them. Rangers want an

:15:44.:16:43.

urgent meeting with the Scottish FA and the author of a report into the

:16:44.:16:54.

crowd disorder against Hibs. Rangers reckon there are inadequacies in the

:16:55.:16:59.

review of the sequence of events. They don't say what they are but

:17:00.:17:03.

recommendations include the government making it a statutory

:17:04.:17:07.

offence to go onto the pitch without lawful authority. The new football

:17:08.:17:08.

league season starts tomorrow. And after an absence of four years

:17:09.:17:10.

Rangers will be in the top division. They've had to work their

:17:11.:17:13.

way up from Scottish Now one of the country's

:17:14.:17:15.

biggest clubs is back - Hamilton will be welcomed for the

:17:16.:17:32.

first game of the new league season, to Ibrox, what a difference for the

:17:33.:17:35.

presence of Rangers make to Scottish football? I think the league will be

:17:36.:17:43.

stronger for it. The financial value of the league will be stronger with

:17:44.:17:51.

Rangers. They play to full houses everywhere they go and they will

:17:52.:17:56.

bring something to the league. To have the league back with both Old

:17:57.:18:01.

Firm clubs, obviously Hibs are not back yet but Hearts and Aberdeen are

:18:02.:18:11.

there, it be exciting year. Most of the major decisions that affect

:18:12.:18:15.

Scottish footballer made outside the country usually inside the M25 or

:18:16.:18:21.

the M4 corridor. And down there they have viewed Scottish football as

:18:22.:18:24.

being on pause for the last few years. They now think it is good to

:18:25.:18:30.

go again. Celtic have been champions for the past five seasons. We'll

:18:31.:18:36.

Rangers threaten their dominance? It will be tight. Probably the usual

:18:37.:18:40.

suspects up and around it, teams that have been doing well recently.

:18:41.:18:44.

You get the likes of Aberdeen that have done well and they are out of

:18:45.:18:48.

the cup now, so maybe that will give them more training time. Hearts have

:18:49.:18:55.

been about it and will have a strong squad, Rangers coming into the leak

:18:56.:18:59.

will fancy they can do well. The expectation will be on them and with

:19:00.:19:02.

that that brings its own pressures and problems but I think the squad

:19:03.:19:08.

have assembled it. They could mount a challenge. Rangers won't get a

:19:09.:19:13.

guard of honour tomorrow and not everyone will welcome their return

:19:14.:19:14.

but it will be impossible to ignore. Meanwhile, Celtic have been drawn

:19:15.:19:18.

to play the Israeli champions Hapoel Be'er Sheva for a place

:19:19.:19:20.

in the Champions League group stage. Celtic is now the only remaining

:19:21.:19:23.

Scottish side left in Europe after Aberdeen lost

:19:24.:19:27.

to Maribor last night, a match that left the Dons

:19:28.:19:28.

manager very unhappy. This was the moment in stoppage time

:19:29.:19:42.

that finally ended Aberdeen's Europa League campaign. COMMENTATOR: Broken

:19:43.:19:49.

up. And it is an horrendous moment for Joe Lewis. Graeme Shinnie on his

:19:50.:19:53.

25th birthday did not expect an own goal to be his present and

:19:54.:19:57.

goalkeeper Joe Lewis wasn't expecting to kick fresh air. But it

:19:58.:20:02.

was not that Bob all that's left the Aberdeen manager fuming it was what

:20:03.:20:06.

went before, in particular the decisions of the Bulgarian referee.

:20:07.:20:12.

Games are decided on key moments, you could say that the penalty miss

:20:13.:20:19.

was defining but we still have to overcome the officials, if the F a

:20:20.:20:28.

allows McGinn to both the penalty kick as he does, I thought he was

:20:29.:20:33.

very quick to do that. I thought the sending-off was ridiculous. I don't

:20:34.:20:38.

think we would see that in any other country, two yellow cards, for that.

:20:39.:20:42.

I've watched it back fat, Stockley just uses his arms full of rich. No

:20:43.:20:47.

movement with the elbow. It's very unusual to see that type of

:20:48.:20:53.

challenge getting a red card. So, all in all a disappointing night for

:20:54.:20:58.

Aberdeen. One penalty miss, one controversial red card and that

:20:59.:21:03.

bizarre goal means they are out of Europe the third year running at the

:21:04.:21:05.

qualifying stage. As Jane was telling

:21:06.:21:09.

us earlier from Rio - the opening ceremony at the Olympics

:21:10.:21:11.

is just a few hours away. That means much excitement around

:21:12.:21:14.

the athletes' village and we were given an access

:21:15.:21:16.

all areas tour of the Team GB accommodation by one

:21:17.:21:19.

of the Scots in the team. Hi there, I am Martin Bennett, part

:21:20.:21:24.

of the GB sevens rugby squad. They've just arrived at the Olympic

:21:25.:21:28.

Village, the first time rugby has been in the Olympics. We are going

:21:29.:21:33.

to the apartment. This is the living room, a couple of the boys chilling,

:21:34.:21:36.

playing with their phones now that we've got Wi-Fi. Let's just go to

:21:37.:21:44.

the bedroom. I'm here on the end. Here's my roommate as well, James

:21:45.:21:49.

Rodwell, in the corner. How you doing? Once you get unpacked and

:21:50.:21:55.

sort out where our bags will go I am pretty sure we'll get quite

:21:56.:21:59.

comfortable. I've got an extra long bed so I should be all right. A lot

:22:00.:22:06.

of it is just our Team GB stuff, three pairs of boots and trainers,

:22:07.:22:10.

got to make sure that the gum shields are there, look after our

:22:11.:22:20.

gnashers. I've got a phone with Pokemon Go on it so I'll play that

:22:21.:22:23.

in my downtime. That is going to be massive, none of us know what to

:22:24.:22:28.

expect, it will be a massively new experience but when we are all

:22:29.:22:32.

looking forward to, Rugby Sevens is a highly competitive sport, and the

:22:33.:22:37.

series for sevens this year, six different teams have won in ten

:22:38.:22:40.

events so on your day if you perform anyone can be a winner. We just need

:22:41.:22:45.

to get ourselves into the best position began and give it our best

:22:46.:22:47.

shot. I am sure they will. That's it from
