Now on BBC One we join the BBC's news teams where you are.

:00:00.:00:00.

Ronnie Coulter murdered Surjit Singh Chhokar in 1998.

:00:07.:00:11.

The judge says the killing was despicable and cowardly.

:00:12.:00:15.

Health officials, the police and the council give the go-ahead

:00:16.:00:18.

for so-called fix rooms in Glasgow, a safe place for drug

:00:19.:00:21.

We're inside the transatlantic air traffic control centre in Prestwick,

:00:22.:00:31.

as new technology comes in allowing more flights to take to the air.

:00:32.:00:36.

Celtic fly out for their Champions League match in Germany

:00:37.:00:38.

but they'll be missing several important players.

:00:39.:00:43.

And as people gather in Edinburgh for a Remembrance service,

:00:44.:00:46.

It wasn't until we arrived at the gates of Belsen concentration camp

:00:47.:01:06.

that we understood why we will actually were there.

:01:07.:01:16.

That's how a judge described the man found guilty of the 1998 murder

:01:17.:01:23.

Ronnie Coulter was today jailed for almost 20 years.

:01:24.:01:29.

His conviction is only the second time in Scottish legal history that

:01:30.:01:32.

an accused has been tried twice for the same crime.

:01:33.:01:34.

This is a David Chhokar family thought they might never. Finally,

:01:35.:01:51.

18 years after Surjit Singh Chhokar's murder, his killer was

:01:52.:01:56.

jailed. He inflicted three stab wounds on his body in a despicable

:01:57.:02:03.

fashion. Thereafter he tried to cover his tracks, and in large

:02:04.:02:08.

measure, he succeeded in doing so. Many years later, he is here to

:02:09.:02:14.

answer for his crime. In November 1998, in Overton North Lanarkshire,

:02:15.:02:17.

Ronnie and two others went to see 1998, in Overton North Lanarkshire,

:02:18.:02:21.

Surjit Singh Chhokar at his house. A fight broke out over a stolen dry

:02:22.:02:26.

road check and he was stabbed in the heart. Two enquiries made

:02:27.:02:33.

allegations of institutional racism. The then Lord Advocate said the

:02:34.:02:41.

Chalker family had been failed by the police and prosecution services.

:02:42.:02:45.

Outside court today, there was relief. In the 18 years it has taken

:02:46.:02:53.

to prove Ronnie Coulter's gilts, he has never shown any remorse. His

:02:54.:02:59.

family had their lives devastated too. Today, justice has finally

:03:00.:03:05.

given our family peace. This is the second time someone in Scotland has

:03:06.:03:09.

been tried twice for the same crime. Ronnie Coulter was found not guilty

:03:10.:03:15.

at a trial in 1999, but since then the law of double jeopardy has been

:03:16.:03:19.

scrapped, and this time he was found guilty. That law meant cult could

:03:20.:03:24.

not be tried again on the same or similar charges on the same case.

:03:25.:03:32.

Today, the family spoke of their grief. There is no celebration for

:03:33.:03:37.

us, because we have lost a member of the family. All we are looking for

:03:38.:03:42.

is Justice. Today, that justice was delivered.

:03:43.:03:44.

Controversial plans to allow drug users to inject under supervision

:03:45.:03:47.

look set to go ahead in Glasgow, making it the first place in the UK

:03:48.:03:50.

Health and council officials have agreed the proposals in principal

:03:51.:03:54.

but have asked for details on how much it would cost

:03:55.:03:57.

Our home affairs correspondent, Reeval Alderson, reports.

:03:58.:04:07.

The detritus of job injectors in Glasgow city centre. Today, city

:04:08.:04:18.

planners have discussed plans to cut the risks of disease spread by

:04:19.:04:27.

needle sharing. I'm scared encase the kids get hurt with all the

:04:28.:04:34.

needles and that. I have actually caught them jacking. I have chased

:04:35.:04:43.

them. In Glasgow it is estimated up to 500 addicts regularly inject in

:04:44.:04:47.

public places. Some would welcome the plan which has been tried

:04:48.:04:51.

successfully around the world. Safe injecting would save a lot of lives,

:04:52.:04:58.

it would lessen the risks that people already take taking drugs.

:04:59.:05:04.

They come to places like this. It is not a safe place to be. It is in

:05:05.:05:12.

areas like this, very close to Glasgow's shopping district, that

:05:13.:05:15.

addicts are injecting in public. Judging by the amount of drugs

:05:16.:05:20.

paraphernalia here, it is happening regularly, with a large number of

:05:21.:05:26.

people. The idea of this proposal is for injecting still to continue, but

:05:27.:05:30.

in clinics, under medical supervision, which would allow the

:05:31.:05:35.

addicts to remain safe, and perhaps bring them into drug treatment

:05:36.:05:42.

programmes. Most of Europe is providing addiction services. There

:05:43.:05:46.

are safe consumption rules. Switzerland has a model where there

:05:47.:05:51.

are heroin replacement treatments, that satisfies the needs of the

:05:52.:05:57.

population. We need to find a solution that brings the solutions

:05:58.:06:01.

elsewhere in the world to Glasgow. It is a controversial plan which

:06:02.:06:05.

some observers say is an admission that previous attempts to cut drug

:06:06.:06:11.

use and the rising tide of death have failed. We have a drug project

:06:12.:06:17.

30 years in existence, and we are still talking about it. We are

:06:18.:06:22.

throwing hundreds of millions of pounds that Albert treatment

:06:23.:06:25.

services, and they are still failing. That is a scandal that our

:06:26.:06:30.

politicians and public should be exercised about. The plan has been

:06:31.:06:36.

approved in principle, and drug workers have approved the move. If

:06:37.:06:40.

approved in principle, and drug we are serious in reducing the harms

:06:41.:06:45.

associated with drug use, we need to use all evidence -based approach is

:06:46.:06:49.

to try to reduce the harms caused by problem drug use. Before a clinic

:06:50.:06:55.

can be established, details on cost, where it would be and how it would

:06:56.:06:58.

operate need to be ironed out. Three men from Glasgow have appeared

:06:59.:07:08.

in court charged with attempting to murder two police officers

:07:09.:07:10.

in an alleged hit-and-run attack David McLean, Dayne McCue

:07:11.:07:12.

and Ryan Gilmour are accused of carrying out the attack

:07:13.:07:16.

in Knightswood earlier this month. They are also accused of attempting

:07:17.:07:18.

to pervert the course of justice The men made no plea or declaration

:07:19.:07:21.

and were remanded in custody. Almost every transatlantic flight

:07:22.:07:25.

is guided by the huge air traffic control centre

:07:26.:07:28.

at Prestwick, in Ayrshire. Now new technology is being brought

:07:29.:07:30.

in to cope with rising traffic The system will even allow

:07:31.:07:32.

some pilots to depart from their current flightpaths

:07:33.:07:36.

and choose their own routes. Here's our science correspondent

:07:37.:07:38.

Kenneth Macdonald. From this room in Prestwick,

:07:39.:07:55.

hundreds of people control the largest area of airspace in the EU.

:07:56.:08:01.

We provide air traffic control services to all aircraft in the

:08:02.:08:06.

northern UK and across the Atlantic. Our role is to make sure aircraft

:08:07.:08:12.

pass through that space safely and efficiently, and we control about 1

:08:13.:08:17.

million aircraft a year. The traffic is expected to increase by 40% over

:08:18.:08:23.

the next 15 years. The system has been designed to allow more aircraft

:08:24.:08:29.

to fly safely. The system can conflict detect, and tell our

:08:30.:08:33.

controllers which conflicts will happen ahead of time, and feed into

:08:34.:08:39.

the system the airspace that has become available, weather data, and

:08:40.:08:42.

all the information to the controllers that they would have had

:08:43.:08:48.

to manually go through previously. So it saves a lot of time. There's

:08:49.:09:00.

16 jets engaged in an area. This system is to support humans, not

:09:01.:09:05.

replace them. The conflict detection is done by the machine now. It will

:09:06.:09:10.

give me an alert if there is a conflict, but it is up to me to

:09:11.:09:13.

resolve the conflict and come up with a plan. For decades, air

:09:14.:09:20.

traffic control has been based on airwaves, most are ways in --

:09:21.:09:27.

motorways in the sky. But they are not always the most efficient

:09:28.:09:31.

routes. The system will allow pilots to go their own way. It will allow

:09:32.:09:38.

more efficient paths, which will reduce fuel burn. The new system has

:09:39.:09:46.

already been phased in, so smoothly it's unlikely many passengers have

:09:47.:09:51.

noticed. In the years to come, the system will also cover the southern

:09:52.:09:56.

half of the UK, and link up with compatible systems across Europe.

:09:57.:10:00.

Down here on the ground there may be Brexit, but above our heads, there

:10:01.:10:03.

will be a single European sky. Dundee's V museum should be

:10:04.:10:06.

completed by the end of next year. The ?80 million project

:10:07.:10:09.

on the city's waterfront will showcase contemporary

:10:10.:10:11.

Scottish design. Andrew Anderson has been to see how

:10:12.:10:12.

work is progressing. It is about six months since we were

:10:13.:10:25.

last on site here at DVLA in Dundee, and we are back to see the progress

:10:26.:10:30.

made in that time. The area I am standing will be a space for

:10:31.:10:36.

visiting exhibitions, the biggest place in Scotland for temporary

:10:37.:10:41.

exhibitions. It also forms the connection between the two buildings

:10:42.:10:48.

that make up the V here in Dundee. The workers on site and making good

:10:49.:10:55.

progress. Work is going on. The walls are at full height, and over

:10:56.:10:59.

the winter and in the New Year we will look forward to the steel beams

:11:00.:11:04.

going on at roof level, and then the fitting out of the museum on the

:11:05.:11:09.

inside can begin. I'm looking at things from the outside now. This is

:11:10.:11:14.

inside can begin. I'm looking at a complicated piece of construction,

:11:15.:11:19.

designed in concrete. The building is swayed in scaffolding and

:11:20.:11:23.

supports at the moment, but it is just possible to make out how it

:11:24.:11:28.

will look when it is completed. The V is seen as a jewel to attract

:11:29.:11:34.

investors to the waterfront, ?1 billion investment over several

:11:35.:11:42.

years. A new railway system is also being built. This is how it will

:11:43.:11:44.

years. A new railway system is also look in just over 12 months' time.

:11:45.:11:50.

The V in Dundee should be welcoming its first visitors by the

:11:51.:11:51.

summer of 2018. You're watching BBC

:11:52.:11:53.

Reporting Scotland. Ronnie Coulter has been jailed for

:11:54.:12:03.

20 years for the murder of Surjit Singh Chhokar in 1998. Still to

:12:04.:12:07.

come, one of Charles Rennie Mackintosh's early designs is given

:12:08.:12:08.

a new lease of life. For most of us, the appearance

:12:09.:12:11.

of poppies are an annual reminder to think of those

:12:12.:12:14.

affected by conflict. But what if you've experienced man's

:12:15.:12:16.

inhumanity to man firsthand? What does Remembrance

:12:17.:12:19.

Sunday mean to you then? Our reporter, Lisa Summers,

:12:20.:12:21.

went to meet one such man. In the autumn sunshine, veterans and

:12:22.:12:36.

their families gathered. The opening of this garden of remembrance in the

:12:37.:12:39.

lead up to Armistice Day focuses the mind. Poppies bring bright colour

:12:40.:12:48.

into desolate places. The Reeves in memory of those who had fallen, but

:12:49.:12:53.

for those who have lived through conflict, the memories never fade. I

:12:54.:12:59.

have a picture in my mind, and it was like a moonscape. The smell of

:13:00.:13:06.

death was everywhere. Ian Forsyth is 92. He served with the 15th to 19th

:13:07.:13:11.

King's Royal Hussars in the Royal armoured Corps. He lost three tanks

:13:12.:13:17.

and many colleagues during the war. If you get out and you are watching

:13:18.:13:24.

the attack, you are praying that the people on the other side of the gun,

:13:25.:13:35.

the turret, ah well. That's a rotten feeling. The memory is all too

:13:36.:13:43.

vivid. When you start, you think you are going to change everything. And

:13:44.:13:52.

then you forget what you are doing, and instead of fighting for the

:13:53.:13:56.

freedom of other people, you are fighting to survive. And it wasn't

:13:57.:14:02.

until we arrived at the gates of Belsen concentration camp that we

:14:03.:14:10.

understood why we actually were there. There were bodies everywhere.

:14:11.:14:16.

We were told, don't feed them. Don't let them out. But that was too much

:14:17.:14:23.

for some of them. And food was thrown over the fence. Which was the

:14:24.:14:30.

wrong thing to do, because the folk at the back trampled over the folk

:14:31.:14:31.

at the front. That's something that haunts me yet.

:14:32.:14:53.

Ian has volunteered for Poppy Scotland for more than 40 years. He

:14:54.:14:58.

says it helps to talk about his experiences. It is the time for

:14:59.:15:02.

generations to reflect, to remember those who lost their lives serving

:15:03.:15:07.

their country. I think when we joined the Army, boys of my age, we

:15:08.:15:13.

all thought we were going to change the world. And we didn't.

:15:14.:15:21.

A look at other stories from across the country.

:15:22.:15:30.

It is claimed the new Borders railway service is beset by

:15:31.:15:36.

cancellations, delays and unreliable trains. Rail campaigners compiled

:15:37.:15:41.

the reports using data from Network Rail, and says it shows serious

:15:42.:15:46.

underperformance of the line. ScotRail says it is determined to

:15:47.:15:51.

find a solution to the challenges. Items from Glasgow's universities

:15:52.:15:59.

and museum are going on display. It will give a flavour of the vast

:16:00.:16:03.

collection, starting with the architecture and design of Charles

:16:04.:16:07.

Rennie Mackintosh. The veterans Minister says the

:16:08.:16:10.

Ministry of Defence is showing a complete lack of respect to Scotland

:16:11.:16:17.

over a review of its military bases. There are fears for four George near

:16:18.:16:21.

Inverness and Kinloss barracks near Murray. Mr Brown says the MoD has

:16:22.:16:27.

failed to meet the Scottish Government to discuss the proposals.

:16:28.:16:31.

Campaigners say losing either of the sites would cost the economy tens of

:16:32.:16:35.

millions of pounds a year. A veteran flyer has become the

:16:36.:16:41.

millionth passenger on Orkney's interisland services. The man has

:16:42.:16:46.

been travelling on the tiny eight seater plane for over 12 years. The

:16:47.:16:51.

lifeline service has been running for more than 50 years, and includes

:16:52.:16:55.

the world's shortest scheduled flight. Not that long ago, I've done

:16:56.:17:06.

over 10,000 flights. I've been doing this for eight years, and flown with

:17:07.:17:15.

all the pilots on the job for all that time, and they have all been

:17:16.:17:21.

excellent. One of the Highland wildlife park's polar bears could be

:17:22.:17:25.

pregnant. She mated with one of the male bears earlier this year. The

:17:26.:17:30.

Royal zoological Society of Scotland say she has been taken off show at

:17:31.:17:34.

the moment, and if she does raise Cubs, they could be born in December

:17:35.:17:35.

or January. And in football: Celtic will be

:17:36.:17:38.

without several important players for tomorrow night's Champions

:17:39.:17:40.

league match against If they lose this match,

:17:41.:17:42.

they'll be out of the competition. It is not the full squad Celtic

:17:43.:18:00.

hoped for,, Tory is injured, Leigh Griffiths is sick. But this is a

:18:01.:18:05.

highly pressured journey. Beaten 2-0 at Celtic Park, can they beat the

:18:06.:18:09.

Germans away from home? They are a very good team. We saw that at

:18:10.:18:13.

Celtic Park. Expansive, open, good with the ball, they play quickly,

:18:14.:18:19.

the speed of their game and they are defensively organised. We have

:18:20.:18:23.

analysed that first game and we have a plan to take the Germany now and

:18:24.:18:27.

hopefully execute the plan and get the result. Logan. It is clever! It

:18:28.:18:38.

is great! At home, Celtic off only top of the Premiership. Another win

:18:39.:18:43.

at the weekend, beating Aberdeen by 1-0. Brendan Rodgers's man on nine

:18:44.:18:49.

points clear in a 13 game domestic run, but put them in a Champions

:18:50.:18:52.

League arena and they hold a very different status. The Group C table

:18:53.:18:56.

is dominated by Barcelona, playing different status. The Group C table

:18:57.:19:00.

three and winning three and the maximum nine points. Manchester City

:19:01.:19:03.

and Borussia Monchengladbach battle it out in the middle ground on four

:19:04.:19:08.

and three points. Celtic sit bottom on a solitary point from the much

:19:09.:19:12.

celebrated draw against city. So it is impossible. To improve. The

:19:13.:19:17.

Champions League is a step up, no question, from what they play in the

:19:18.:19:20.

National League, no disrespect to the other teams but it is a big step

:19:21.:19:24.

up and they are in a very tough group. But to get a result against

:19:25.:19:28.

the Germans away would be lovely for them and give them a real

:19:29.:19:32.

confidence. If they don't make Europe into the New Year, it is

:19:33.:19:40.

something to build on for next year. A Halloween journey into the

:19:41.:19:46.

frightening unknown, perhaps. At a 7-0 defeat in Barcelona, Celtic is

:19:47.:19:49.

keen to avoid more nightmare travels.

:19:50.:19:53.

This week, 21 Scottish golfers head to Spain to take the next step

:19:54.:19:56.

towards what they hope will be a lucrative career in the sport.

:19:57.:19:59.

They're heading to the second stage of golf's European Tour School,

:20:00.:20:01.

where they'll try to qualify for next year's Tour.

:20:02.:20:04.

Brian McLauchlin's been speaking to one of the players

:20:05.:20:06.

He already has a successful career as an amateur in the bag, now this

:20:07.:20:24.

East Lothian golfer wants to make it on the golf's main stage as a

:20:25.:20:28.

professional. A decision he has taken some time to reach. It wasn't

:20:29.:20:32.

really until the last couple of years where I thought I want to

:20:33.:20:36.

really give this a go and make it living out of this. It is extremely

:20:37.:20:44.

competitive, but it is the same with any sport and business, you just

:20:45.:20:48.

have to work harder and work as hard as you can and just have that belief

:20:49.:20:55.

you are going to get there. Grant is one of 21 Scottish golfers trying to

:20:56.:20:59.

make it through to the Tour score finals next month in Spain and this

:21:00.:21:00.

make it through to the Tour score has been a pathway for some of the

:21:01.:21:05.

best golfers in the world. Ryder Cup stars Justin Rose and Ian Poulter

:21:06.:21:10.

two well-known graduates of the Tour score, along with our Open champions

:21:11.:21:16.

Paul Lawrie and Sandy Lyle. But the fairways are littered with failures

:21:17.:21:22.

and in reality, only if you make it through to earn the riches of

:21:23.:21:26.

professional success. The dream of becoming a professional was always

:21:27.:21:29.

something that came from the heart, I felt. It is what young people with

:21:30.:21:33.

ambition want to do. The reality of making a living as a professional

:21:34.:21:38.

golfer is very much a challenge for the head and the reality today is I

:21:39.:21:42.

think that the gulf between head and heart has never been greater. It is

:21:43.:21:46.

extremely testing nowadays to make a living as a young professional

:21:47.:21:52.

golfer. For this 23-year-old, the immediate goal is fairly

:21:53.:21:56.

straightforward. The plan is to walk away with a European Tour card in

:21:57.:22:00.

two weeks, that is the goal. That is the plan. Over 1,000 golfers began

:22:01.:22:04.

two weeks, that is the goal. That is the long hard road towards a

:22:05.:22:06.

two weeks, that is the goal. That is European Tour back in August, but

:22:07.:22:11.

only 25, that is under 3%, will realise their dream.

:22:12.:22:14.

Today's the last day of the Mackintosh Festival,

:22:15.:22:16.

the annual celebration of the work of the architect Charles

:22:17.:22:19.

It's also, however, the beginning of a brand-new chapter for one

:22:20.:22:24.

of his earliest designs, created as part of a group

:22:25.:22:26.

Our arts correspondent, Pauline McLean, reports.

:22:27.:22:36.

If you look closely, you will spot the clues to the early work of a

:22:37.:22:43.

world-famous architect. Charles Rennie Mackintosh designed this in

:22:44.:22:48.

1893 when he was just 25 years old. A games room for the local

:22:49.:22:51.

Conservative Association which has now been restored and reopened to

:22:52.:22:55.
