Nicola Sturgeon starts what she's calling a "new conversation"

:00:00.:00:00.

with the people of Scotland about independence.

:00:07.:00:15.

Before we start talking, we must listen. Today we launched the first

:00:16.:00:22.

phase in our new campaign, the biggest listening exercise in our

:00:23.:00:27.

party's history. If she was listening to people in Scotland, she

:00:28.:00:30.

would know that the majority do not want to be dragged to another

:00:31.:00:32.

divisive referendum. We'll be looking at how Brexit has

:00:33.:00:34.

:00:52.:00:55.

worried about their defence, Nicola Sturgeon says she's

:00:56.:00:57.

starting what she's called a "new conversation" on independence

:00:58.:01:17.

with the people of Scotland. The First Minister says she wants

:01:18.:01:21.

to reach as many as two million people before the end of November

:01:22.:01:24.

using face to face canvassing, an online survey and

:01:25.:01:26.

town hall meetings. But the leader of the Scottish

:01:27.:01:29.

Conservatives, Ruth Davidson, accused her of ignoring

:01:30.:01:31.

the priorities of the people in pursuit of her own narrow

:01:32.:01:33.

nationalist agenda. Here's our political editor,

:01:34.:01:37.

Brian Taylor. The SNP promised a summer campaign

:01:38.:01:52.

on independence, but Brexit intervened to change the political

:01:53.:01:54.

brew, and so it is an autumn intervened to change the political

:01:55.:02:00.

manoeuvre instead. Nicola Sturgeon insisted she would work to protect

:02:01.:02:05.

Scotland's European interests within the UK framework, but if that

:02:06.:02:11.

failed... I believe it is right that our party now leads a new

:02:12.:02:15.

conversation on independence. Today I want to set out the principles

:02:16.:02:20.

that will guide that debate. First, it will be a new debate. It will not

:02:21.:02:29.

be a rerun of 2014. The UK that Scotland voted to stay part of in

:02:30.:02:35.

2014 has changed. That takes me to the second principle. Before we

:02:36.:02:40.

start talking, we must listen. If they listen, what might they here?

:02:41.:02:47.

Madness, absolute madness, financial suicide. Not for me. If it came

:02:48.:02:53.

again, I would probably say yes. A lot of people might change because

:02:54.:02:57.

of the outcome last time, because they were promised things that did

:02:58.:03:02.

not happen. It definitely should be something that awaits perhaps until

:03:03.:03:08.

we know what Brexit has in store. I don't know why they have to keep

:03:09.:03:11.

trying to get the vote they want, which is what they did in Ireland,

:03:12.:03:17.

which was shameful. The First Minister cited two new reasons for

:03:18.:03:21.

independence. Labour's problems, entrenching the Tories in Downing

:03:22.:03:25.

Street and the Tories leaving the EU against Scottish opinion. Her rivals

:03:26.:03:30.

dissent. If she was listening to people, she would know they do not

:03:31.:03:34.

want to be dragged back to another divisive referendum. People want the

:03:35.:03:37.

government to do what they well it did to do, improve hospitals and

:03:38.:03:41.

schools. Keep their eye on the day job, not drag a spectre a

:03:42.:03:47.

referendum. Nicola Sturgeon has announced a listening exercise and

:03:48.:03:50.

the majority will have hoped she was listening when the people clearly

:03:51.:03:54.

said no to independence. She is a very powerful woman with the chance

:03:55.:03:58.

to go back into Parliament next week and transform lives. She should get

:03:59.:04:03.

back to that job. The First Minister told me the SNP needed to persuade

:04:04.:04:09.

and cajole. Scotland is on a journey that will end with independence. I

:04:10.:04:13.

believe that is the natural state for our country. But I don't believe

:04:14.:04:18.

we get there simply by the enthusiasm of SNP members, important

:04:19.:04:22.

though that is. We have to engage with, listen to, understand the

:04:23.:04:25.

concerns and aspirations of people and answer the hard questions people

:04:26.:04:32.

have. Nicola Sturgeon says independence might involve

:04:33.:04:34.

challengers and complexities, and she argues that it would allow

:04:35.:04:37.

Scotland to take back control. There seems to be more than one

:04:38.:04:39.

conversation going on here, Brian. Very much so. I listened to the

:04:40.:04:52.

First Minister today and was struck by how often she married passion for

:04:53.:04:59.

independence alongside directly following hard pragmatism about the

:05:00.:05:05.

challenges involved. She said nationalists might say that the

:05:06.:05:08.

union was responsible for Scotland's economic deficit. She said that

:05:09.:05:13.

still meant there had to be hard answers on that. She announced a

:05:14.:05:18.

growth commission, chaired by former MSP Andrew Wilson. Another element

:05:19.:05:23.

is the business of Brexit being counterbalanced with the

:05:24.:05:27.

independence far. That is one reason why I think if there is a further

:05:28.:05:31.

referendum it will not be instant, not in the immediate future, because

:05:32.:05:35.

I think the SNP will want to see the shape of wrecks it, what it actually

:05:36.:05:41.

means, and then and only then, if they are still unsatisfied, they

:05:42.:05:46.

would come to oppose that with their independence offer, if it happens at

:05:47.:05:47.

all. A hearing into a social worker,

:05:48.:05:50.

who's alleged to have failed the murdered Fife toddler Liam Fee

:05:51.:05:52.

and other children, has been told it should find every

:05:53.:05:55.

charge against her proven. The Scottish Social Services Council

:05:56.:05:57.

hearing has heard evidence that From the hearing,

:05:58.:06:01.

Andrew Anderson reports. Panel members have listened to days

:06:02.:06:14.

of evidence from colleagues of Lesley Bate, one of the child

:06:15.:06:19.

protection team. She had been asked to investigate concerns over Liam

:06:20.:06:24.

Fee's welfare. A childminder was worried about injuries, including a

:06:25.:06:28.

massive bruise to his forehead. The mother claimed he had fallen out of

:06:29.:06:33.

a cot. The childminder was worried he had been knocked unconscious. The

:06:34.:06:37.

hearing heard that Lesley Bate excepted the mother's explanation.

:06:38.:06:38.

It is alleged she failed to follow excepted the mother's explanation.

:06:39.:06:43.

up on further concerns about an injury to Liam Fee's neck, and there

:06:44.:06:47.

were no notes about it on council computers. Liam Fee's mother and her

:06:48.:06:53.

partner are serving life for his murder in March 2014, more than a

:06:54.:06:57.

year after concerns for his safety were first raised. The hearing was

:06:58.:07:02.

told Lesley Bate was erratic, disorganised and chaotic and her

:07:03.:07:05.

failings were not acceptable, and she had left another child at risk

:07:06.:07:10.

of harm. But the hearing was also told the child protection team was

:07:11.:07:15.

divided and dysfunctional, that some staff would not speak to others

:07:16.:07:18.

unless they had to, and that that had had an impact on other cases. It

:07:19.:07:24.

is not just Liam Fee that Lesley Bate is alleged to have failed. The

:07:25.:07:29.

charges include 15 other children. The most serious charges are that

:07:30.:07:33.

she failed to take necessary steps to minimise actual or potential risk

:07:34.:07:38.

of harm to children between December 2011, and August 2000 and 14. The

:07:39.:07:43.

lawyer for the Scottish social services Council told the panel the

:07:44.:07:47.

witnesses they had heard from where highly credible and experienced. The

:07:48.:07:50.

Chargers, he said, were supported by documentary evidence. Lesley Bate

:07:51.:07:56.

has not attempt -- attended the hearing and has not been

:07:57.:07:59.

represented. The panel was told you does not admit to any of the

:08:00.:08:02.

Chargers. The committee will convene at a later date when it will deliver

:08:03.:08:04.

its findings. Output and exports are down among

:08:05.:08:07.

Scottish firms, and one in three At the same time, research

:08:08.:08:10.

into the defence sector shows how employment has dropped,

leaving shipbuilding all the more According to Scottish engineering,

the first waves of an economic tsunami following the vote

:08:17.:08:26.

to leave the European Union And that's with the slump in the oil

:08:27.:08:28.

and gas sector already affecting This industry body asks members

:08:29.:08:35.

if things are up or down, and the gap is a measure of how good

:08:36.:08:40.

or bad things look. Here's the way they look with output

:08:41.:08:44.

over the past three years, many more companies down

:08:45.:08:48.

than up during summer. It's been negative

:08:49.:08:52.

for more than a year. The weaker pound since June has

:08:53.:08:55.

helped some tourism firms, but many engineering companies have

:08:56.:08:59.

seen export orders drop, and costs are up for those raw

:09:00.:09:03.

materials with prices set They are as bad as we have seen

:09:04.:09:18.

since the recession in 2009. What we are seeing is that Brexit,

:09:19.:09:24.

apparently, had a significant effect on the small to medium enterprises

:09:25.:09:28.

of Scotland. We are not seeing the benefit that is being accrued

:09:29.:09:32.

elsewhere by the weak pound helping exports. It is maybe that we are on

:09:33.:09:37.

a slow burn, because our largest market is the rest of the UK, and we

:09:38.:09:42.

may see a feed through of the improvement that has been seen

:09:43.:09:43.

elsewhere. Recruitment doesn't look too good

:09:44.:09:45.

in that survey either. And a study of the defence sector,

:09:46.:09:47.

out today, shows how employment has dropped, particularly

:09:48.:09:50.

at the Ministry of Defence. There are 3700 civilian jobs now,

:09:51.:09:52.

2800 fewer than eight years ago. In uniform, there are 10,000

:09:53.:09:58.

roles based in Scotland, That matters most in Argyll,

:09:59.:10:01.

where defence accounts for one job in eight,

:10:02.:10:10.

in Moray, one in 12. Scotland has a big role

:10:11.:10:12.

in shipbuilding for the Royal Navy, and this report for the GMB union,

:10:13.:10:15.

carried out at Strathclyde University, found it supports

:10:16.:10:20.

10,000 jobs on the Clyde, building these offshore patrol

:10:21.:10:23.

ships, and at Rosyth in Fife, where aircraft carriers

:10:24.:10:27.

are being assembled. The economic impact of those wages

:10:28.:10:31.

and on the supplier firms - reckoned to total ?268

:10:32.:10:34.

million per year. That's why the shop floor union

:10:35.:10:45.

is keen to see an end to delays Shipbuilding is absolutely crucial

:10:46.:11:11.

to the Scottish economy, and 10,000 jobs are dependent on shipbuilding

:11:12.:11:16.

and another 5000 dependent on work at Faslane. These are real jobs,

:11:17.:11:21.

real wages, supporting real families in working-class

:11:22.:11:24.

With that Brexit vote casting a long shadow over the economy,

:11:25.:11:27.

we'll be looking in more detail at the consequences so far, here on

Nicola Sturgeon says she wants to have a new conversation

And how a 90-year-old film is being given a new twist

Police officers on Scotland's railways are to be armed

with Tasers, in a bid to increase security on the network.

:12:06.:12:08.

British Transport Police say it's a "proportionate response"

deployed by British Transport Police in Scottish train stations. We

:12:40.:12:43.

looked at events in mainland Europe and nearer to home, and we looked at

:12:44.:12:47.

the options we feel are necessary to give officers the best protection

:12:48.:12:52.

for themselves, and to be able to protect the public on the railways

and staff who work on the railways. This man has a knife. He had already

him. But critics say the shock delivered can often be lethal. They

:13:13.:13:16.

are linked to at least 11 deaths in England and Wales in the last

:13:17.:13:21.

decade. Commuters in Glasgow had mixed views. I do not see it as an

:13:22.:13:26.

appropriate response to what is going on. I would not mind. For

:13:27.:13:33.

security reasons, I suppose. What if a police man was overzealous and it

:13:34.:13:38.

was a drunk person? It is a step in the wrong direction. For terrorism,

:13:39.:13:44.

yes. For drunken people fighting, no. I am told that fewer than 350

:13:45.:13:47.

officers will be issued with no. I am told that fewer than 350

:13:48.:13:50.

's and they will be fully trained on how and when to use them. If a Taser

:13:51.:13:55.

is deployed, there will be an automatic review by specialists. The

:13:56.:13:59.

officers selected to carry them will be trained over the next few weeks.

that the bodies of babies and infants were too

:14:53.:14:55.

when their motorcycle and a car crashed near Rosewell in Midlothian

:14:56.:15:03.

late last night were the 65-year-old motorcyclist

:15:04.:15:06.

and his 59-year-old woman passenger. A 26-year-old man was

treated at the scene. The funeral of 37-year-old

potentially the next big thing in central defence. Do you believe you

:17:20.:17:23.

can be a world-class defender one day? Yes, I've got self-confidence,

:17:24.:17:32.

I think I can. I've got a lot to learn, but I always take in what

:17:33.:17:37.

everyone says to me. I learn all the time, I am always open to ideas and

Not frightened, he anticipates it well. I watched him against Aberdeen

recently, in the right place, at the right time. I think somebody has got

:18:05.:18:09.

to take it on. I think John Souter is one we should be looking at for

:18:10.:18:14.

the future. In the 1980s, Scotland had a selection of top-class centre

:18:15.:18:21.

backs, Willie Miller, Alex McLeish and David Nehra. Now in 2016, the

:18:22.:18:23.

issue is quality. They have got and David Nehra. Now in 2016, the

:18:24.:18:31.

big problem. How we solve it is a long and complicated question. But I

:18:32.:18:35.

do think we need to get our act in order, particularly at the

:18:36.:18:39.

development level. We need to encourage young players to come

:18:40.:18:43.

through with the right stature and standing, particularly defensively

:18:44.:18:46.

in the hope that in the future it will get better. Hard work required

:18:47.:18:52.

and the John Souter, still part of the under 21 squad, there remains a

:18:53.:18:56.

long way to go. Defence is just part of the equation, when it comes to

:18:57.:19:01.

quality, questions surrounds the Scotland squad. Qualification for

:19:02.:19:04.

the 2018 World Cup is the answer we want.

:19:05.:19:06.

Well, tonight there's been another withdrawal from the Scotland squad,

:19:07.:19:10.

The Rangers skipper Lee Wallace was sidelined in training

:19:11.:19:16.

The SFA say he has a niggling injury and that there'll be no

:19:17.:19:19.

Wallace has travelled with his club team-mates to Belfast,

where Rangers are playing a testimonial game.

Laura Muir has won the ?30,000 jackpot for winning the overall

:19:27.:19:28.

Diamond League title for the 1500 metres.

:19:29.:19:30.

A second place finish in Zurich last night was still enough to secure

:19:31.:19:33.

top spot in the series for the Glasgow

It was Muir's third fastest time of the year and the third fastest

The new pro-12 rugby season starts this weekend,

:19:41.:19:49.

with both of Scotland's professional teams in action.

:19:50.:19:53.

Glasgow and Edinburgh are once again taking on the best teams in Ireland,

:19:54.:19:56.

Wales and Italy over the next nine months.

:19:57.:19:58.

One of the Scots sides has enjoyed success in recent years,

:19:59.:20:02.

But for both this season could be the end of an era,

:20:03.:20:07.

Is this the beginning of a long and perhaps meandering blood by from

:20:08.:20:20.

this gentleman? He is leaving Glasgow Warriors at the end of this

season, when he will take over the national team. You must be feeling a

:20:25.:20:28.

tiny bit different at the start of the season, your last one. You are

:20:29.:20:33.

saying you don't, but the guys tell a different story. I will be honest

:20:34.:20:38.

with you, as always. The fact the announcements were made a couple of

:20:39.:20:41.

weeks ago and obviously the future for the club is secure, getting the

:20:42.:20:48.

new coach next season. It is focusing on this season. In four

enormous difference. One of those internationals has left Glasgow to

former one. The target is high at getting in the top four. I believe

:21:33.:21:36.

we have a squad capable of doing that, it is just about making sure

we do our talking on the field. Edinburgh will be doing their

in the squad that we can take on anybody. Winning the championship

Townsend. A film documentary about the herring

the numbers of people turning out to see the film shows how important

modern contribution is enhancing the experience and is getting a good

response. They will be watching a silent film with a live, vocal

increasing across Scotland. The 40 minute film with its beatbox

soundtrack was commissioned by the British film Institute for DVD and
