Pauline Cafferkey, the nurse who survived Ebola,

:00:00.:00:09.

where she originally contracted the disease.

:00:10.:00:18.

I think psychologically it is important that I go back, that is

:00:19.:00:26.

where things kind of started for me, and things will come full circle for

:00:27.:00:28.

me, a bit of closure. Also on the programme,

:00:29.:00:29.

fewer people are looking for jobs - unemployment here has fallen below

:00:30.:00:32.

the rate across the rest of the UK. We hear the Brexit concerns

:00:33.:00:35.

of Scots living in France. After weeks of disruption

:00:36.:00:39.

for drivers, the new section of the M8

:00:40.:00:40.

will open ahead of schedule. to celebrate the first man

:00:41.:00:50.

in space, Yuri Gagarin. Pauline Cafferkey,

:00:51.:01:08.

the nurse who survived Ebola, is to return to Sierra Leone,

:01:09.:01:11.

where she contracted the disease. She says the trip, to raise funds

:01:12.:01:15.

for orphaned children, after what she's described

:01:16.:01:17.

as a pretty tough couple of years. This is the image which has come to

:01:18.:01:34.

define Pauline Cafferkey, being medevac to London under strictest

:01:35.:01:37.

quarantine, the nurse who caught Ebola. The rear lights and the

:01:38.:01:41.

meningitis it brought was the worst to get over. I was destroyed, my

:01:42.:01:47.

body was destroyed, I could do very little for myself. I was in a

:01:48.:01:51.

wheelchair initially when I got out of hospital, and then I was on

:01:52.:01:54.

crutches, and it has been a long slow process, and I am still in a

:01:55.:02:01.

stage of healing. Which makes it all the more surprising that she has

:02:02.:02:04.

decided to go back to Sierra Leone next month - not to notice this time

:02:05.:02:09.

but to take part in a run for cherry. I plan to run 10K, I

:02:10.:02:16.

definitely wouldn't be up for the marathon, but I am planning to do

:02:17.:02:20.

10K for fundraising while I am there. They have identified 1200

:02:21.:02:27.

children who are particularly vulnerable, orphans as a result of a

:02:28.:02:31.

Ebola. Helping the orphans that Ebola left behind is a cause very

:02:32.:02:36.

dear to her. She particularly remembers a 12-year-old who's dying

:02:37.:02:42.

mother she was nursing. He was just distraught, as you would be. And he

:02:43.:02:49.

had lost other members of his family as well. I don't know what happened

:02:50.:02:58.

to him after. Is he someone that you might be able to try and seek out

:02:59.:03:02.

when you go back? He would be a little bit older now, no? It would

:03:03.:03:11.

break my heart, I think. Arriving back home infected with a Ebola was

:03:12.:03:15.

the start of a long battle for Pauline Cafferkey. To get back to

:03:16.:03:18.

health and clear her professional reputation. Accused of allowing a

:03:19.:03:23.

wrong temperature to be recorded for her during screening, the misconduct

:03:24.:03:26.

charge was dismissed after the hearing heard she had been impaired

:03:27.:03:32.

by the illness at the time. Pauline Cafferkey be the Michael Bay joined

:03:33.:03:35.

by two nurse she met working in Sierra Leone. Going back is the

:03:36.:03:39.

first step in leaving that image behind once and for all as she moves

:03:40.:03:43.

on with her life. Psychologically it is important that I go back, I have

:03:44.:03:53.

had a terrible couple of years since then, so it will be good to go back,

:03:54.:03:57.

for things to come full circle for me, a little bit of closure. Aileen

:03:58.:03:59.

Clarke, Reporting Scotland. fell over the winter months

:04:00.:04:02.

to just over 120,000 That takes the unemployment rate

:04:03.:04:06.

to below that of the UK as a whole. Our business and economy editor,

:04:07.:04:09.

Douglas Fraser, Unemployment across Britain hasn't

:04:10.:04:11.

been any lower than this since 1975. In Scotland, the jobless rate

:04:12.:04:18.

is 4.5% of the workforce, That's with an estimated

:04:19.:04:22.

15,000 fewer Scots seeking work between December

:04:23.:04:29.

and February. But contrary to the wider UK trend,

:04:30.:04:30.

the number of Scots in work while the number of working-age

:04:31.:04:33.

Scots who are not in or available for work has continued to rise,

:04:34.:04:38.

up 18,000. The figures, from the Office

:04:39.:04:40.

for National Statistics, show employees' pay inflation

:04:41.:04:45.

over the year running at 2.3%,

:04:46.:04:50.

including bonuses - the same as the most recent figure

:04:51.:04:52.

for rising prices. That means real spending power has

:04:53.:05:06.

stalled. With unemployment solo, recruitment pricey, and growing talk

:05:07.:05:10.

of skills shortages, it is all the more important to retain valued

:05:11.:05:17.

staff, so how do employers do that? Meet the millennial boss, dropping

:05:18.:05:22.

into his Glasgow office. His business offers experiences from

:05:23.:05:25.

meals to balloon flights with more than 1 million members of its online

:05:26.:05:34.

club. We have our hot air balloon and our magical tree, and all of

:05:35.:05:38.

these things are reflected in the business, they all serve purposes.

:05:39.:05:41.

The team sparkles every time a member joins, so typically 600 join

:05:42.:05:47.

every day, so it has a subtle connection to what we do. When you

:05:48.:05:50.

are young and growing a business, retention is one of the biggest

:05:51.:05:54.

challenges you face, and we have grown up as a business and

:05:55.:05:58.

understood a bit more about it, so retention is a key priority, so much

:05:59.:06:02.

time is spent tried to find the right people, and maintaining them

:06:03.:06:05.

is what you have to do to grow the company. While players rising no

:06:06.:06:09.

faster than prices, there are other ways to keep workers from rebels -

:06:32.:06:36.

well, and having things in place that recognise the difference every

:06:37.:06:40.

single one of our employees can make. Selling clothes may not be a

way for workers to get rich, but a happy worker can be fulfilled in

other ways. They invest in you so much as a person, and my confidence

:06:50.:06:55.

has grown so much. People are amazing, they are so approachable

:06:56.:06:59.

and great, always wanting to develop you, constantly push you to your

:07:00.:07:00.

limits in a good way. Recent surveys suggest employers

:07:01.:07:02.

are facing a big churn of workers, leaving because they're

:07:03.:07:05.

bored or unfulfilled. In turn, workers,

:07:06.:07:06.

and especially younger ones, expect jobs to be more flexible,

:07:07.:07:08.

to give them more sense of control, and more should be done to

:07:27.:07:28.

divisive independence referendum, Our political correspondent

:07:29.:07:31.

Andrew Kerr can tell us more. Trying to be at the cutting-edge of

:07:32.:07:43.

photo calls, and other method of transport for the Liberal Democrat

:07:44.:07:45.

leader. The party lost more than half their seats at the last council

:07:46.:07:50.

election, voters expressed their anger after they went into coalition

:07:51.:07:54.

with the Conservatives. We are fighting more seeds in this

:07:55.:07:57.

campaign, we have got great by-election wins right across the

:07:58.:08:01.

country, including in Scotland. We are confident we will grow in this

:08:02.:08:05.

campaign, because we have a positive message about investing in mental

:08:06.:08:14.

health services and education, ending the unfair council tax, and

:08:15.:08:16.

also sending a clear no to a second device of independence referendum.

:08:17.:08:19.

The party points out they allow local groups a lot of freedom when

:08:20.:08:25.

it comes to policy, but to expand on what the leader said, they won't

:08:26.:08:29.

mental health support to be quick, effective and locally available. On

:08:30.:08:37.

education, they want investment and decentralising power to schools.

:08:38.:08:38.

They also want an end to council decentralising power to schools.

:08:39.:08:44.

tax. When it comes to this vote, the party is trying to make a

:08:45.:08:48.

constitutional upset, campaigning against what they call a hard Tory

:08:49.:08:53.

Brexit and the SNP's so-called obsession with independence. They

:08:54.:08:56.

are not worried about prounion supporters being collected up by the

:08:57.:09:02.

Conservatives. I think it has always been a challenge with council

:09:03.:09:06.

elections, if there is big news nationally, it overshadows. What we

:09:07.:09:10.

find is that people are raising Brexit and independent issues on the

:09:11.:09:14.

doorstep, but because they are so upset about the state of local

:09:15.:09:19.

services, so that helps us because we have credibility as local

:09:20.:09:22.

champions. So after being punished by voters in the past, the Liberal

:09:23.:09:27.

Democrats believe they have cultivated their grassroots and are

:09:33.:09:34.

Scots living on the continent have urged European governments not

:09:35.:09:37.

to use expats as bargaining chips while they negotiate

:09:38.:09:39.

It's hoped member states can agree reciprocal rights for expats.

:09:40.:09:42.

But they warn that the cost of health care and pensions

:09:43.:09:48.

Jackie O'Brien has been hearing the concerns of some expats

:09:49.:09:50.

Two highlanders living the dream and checking the grapes in their

:09:51.:10:06.

vineyard in a village in the Minervois wine region. Look at the

:10:07.:10:16.

grapes! Beautifully formed. Too far down. Guy and Liz Crawford have

:10:17.:10:22.

immersed themselves in a French language, business and culture with

:10:23.:10:30.

a Scottish twist. Britain's decision to leave the EU has cast a shadow

:10:31.:10:34.

over their light until a deal is done on the rights of expats. We can

:10:35.:10:39.

only hope that politicians on both sides will think about people who

:10:40.:10:44.

have invested, as French people have invested in the United Kingdom,

:10:45.:10:47.

before they start making decisions that could be detrimental. I am

:10:48.:10:53.

incredibly disappointed with politicians. They should have taken

:10:54.:10:57.

this issue off the table, and it should not be a bargaining chip, a

:10:58.:11:02.

discussion chip. It just should have been, I think, resolved immediately

:11:03.:11:06.

with reciprocal arrangements in both countries. In a neighbouring

:11:07.:11:12.

village, a different couple with different concerns - retirees hilly

:11:13.:11:15.

and Brian from Edinburgh there they may be forced to leave if existing

:11:16.:11:20.

reciprocal health care funding is scrapped between Britain and France.

:11:21.:11:25.

As you are getting older, you do tend to get more unwell, and amongst

:11:26.:11:31.

all our friends that is the one big thing, will we be able to get health

:11:32.:11:35.

insurance? Will we be able to use our cards in the UK? We thought we

:11:36.:11:41.

would spend the rest of our lives here, all these reciprocal

:11:42.:11:44.

arrangements in place as regards health and everything else, and we

:11:45.:11:49.

didn't foresee any problems. We certainly didn't see anything like

:11:50.:11:53.

this coming along. As expatriates living in villages like this one,

:11:54.:12:01.

consider the allegations of Brexit, they also fear the prospect that

:12:02.:12:05.

France could stage a EU referendum depending on the outcomes of the

:12:06.:12:09.

country's elections next month. The French have fears too. Local

:12:10.:12:14.

businesses depend on expat trade - in a region which loses its young

:12:15.:12:19.

people to the cities. For me, it is dangerous for my business, 30% of my

:12:20.:12:30.

clients are British. Others who have moved here from Scotland worry about

:12:31.:12:35.

what awaits them at home. If we all go back, all us pensioners, then we

:12:36.:12:40.

will be a drain on resources in the UK. We are not about age to put that

:12:41.:12:44.

much back into the economy, we are not of working age. With Britain's

:12:45.:12:47.

exit from the EU likely to take not of working age. With Britain's

:12:48.:12:51.

years to negotiate, time is moving a little too slowly for the Scots who

A new section of the M8 will open to traffic this month.

:13:21.:13:24.

The link between Newhouse and Baillieston will open

:13:25.:13:26.

westbound on the 23rd, eastbound a week later.

:13:27.:13:28.

It's a welcome end to diversions which have been

:13:29.:13:31.

in place since February. Rebecca Curran reports.

:13:32.:13:40.

It has been described as the M8's missing link. But now after two

:13:41.:13:47.

months under construction, this section of newly built road between

:13:48.:13:51.

Newhouse and Bellaston is most ready to open. It marks a major milestone

:13:52.:13:56.

in the half ?1 million project to reduce congestion between Edinburgh

:13:57.:14:01.

and Glasgow. Next week, the first part of the M8 will be complete,

:14:02.:14:07.

coming westbound firstly, and a week later, eastbound. That will mean for

:14:08.:14:10.

the road between Edinburgh and Scott the road between Edinburgh and Scott

:14:11.:14:14.

-- Glasgow, is model where the whole way through. And all the way through

:14:15.:14:18.

to Greenock. This is tremendous news on a substantial project. It may be

:14:19.:14:25.

good news, but there have been delays while work has been under

:14:26.:14:29.

way. It has been a long journey, and it's not over yet. This section may

:14:30.:14:33.

be opening ahead of schedule, but drivers are warned to expect further

:14:34.:14:36.

delays while some diversions remain in place. Once the road is fully

:14:37.:14:41.

open, it is estimated journey times will be cut by around 20 minutes

:14:42.:14:46.

during peak periods. Journeys will change for people. People who used

:14:47.:14:53.

the travel whole junctions, they should visit Transport Scotland

:14:54.:14:56.

website to gain an understanding of the new routes. As you say, the euro

Central junction, there will be diversions in place, so please

:15:03.:15:07.

follow diversion signs and we will get the work complete as soon

Curran, Glasgow. Its been announced in the last hour

:15:19.:15:19.

that the ferry service to Arran will continue

:15:20.:15:22.

to operate from Ardrossan. The Scottish Government made

:15:23.:15:25.

the decision after a specially commissioned study looked at issues

:15:26.:15:28.

including reliability, fares, travel time and cost

:15:29.:15:30.

to the public purse. ABP Ports had launched a bid to run

:15:31.:15:32.

the ferry from Troon. Peel Ports, the company who own

:15:33.:15:37.

Ardrossan harbour has pledged along with North Ayrshire Council

:15:57.:16:01.

inquiries were ongoing. Scotland's cruise ship season

:16:02.:16:09.

is just getting under way, and this year it's expected to bring

:16:10.:16:11.

half a million cruise Invergordon is the busiest cruise

:16:12.:16:14.

port in the country, and today welcomed its first ship

:16:15.:16:19.

of the season. Craig Anderson was

:16:20.:16:21.

there to meet it. Disembarking this morning, more than

:16:22.:16:35.

a thousand passengers are getting into buses, taxis, hire cars and

:16:36.:16:38.

even onto bikes to explore this part of the Highlands. The board of

:16:39.:16:42.

Invergordon is looking forward to its busiest year ever, welcoming

:16:43.:16:47.

more than 90 cruise ships, wringing over 140,000 people to the area. It

:16:48.:16:52.

is very important indeed. It is a growing business, of course, and it

:16:53.:16:57.

is a young business. It is important for the Highland economy. This year

:16:58.:17:02.

we expected to deliver 14 to ?15 million. The age profile of cruise

:17:03.:17:09.

passengers is reducing all the time. Coming to Scotland, they want

:17:10.:17:12.

Cassells, distilleries, the landscape, and of course one

:17:17.:17:28.

pictures of the landscape. It is fantastic. So much business comes to

the Highlands. It is an important revenue. It has transformed visiting

tranquillity... Cruise passengers may spend only a few hours on shore

:17:47.:17:49.

here, but there is every evidence that having had a taste of Scotland,

:17:50.:17:54.

they will come back and spend more time and money here. Craig Anderson,

as part of a festival that's come The Nuart Festival -

:18:01.:18:02.

held in Stavanger every year - is being hailed as a template

:18:03.:18:07.

for transforming rundown urban areas.

:18:08.:18:09.

Fiona Stalker reports. It's like seeing a city through a

:18:10.:18:22.

fresh pair of eyes. The landscape is being redrawn. This building has

:18:23.:18:28.

been concerned by some as an eyesore. Is a perfect canvas. I love

:18:29.:18:33.

the fact people have a Burke smack referred to as one of the ugliest

:18:34.:18:37.

buildings. It is exactly our job, to beautify it. It is the first time I

:18:38.:18:42.

have seen a good reason for actually looking at that building instead of

:18:43.:18:47.

walking past it! It is huge, it is beautiful and it catches the eye.

:18:48.:18:52.

It's amazing. Creating an amazing thing in neglected places is what

:18:53.:18:54.

this festival is about. 11 thing in neglected places is what

:18:55.:18:57.

from around the world are leaving their mark. Not long ago, painting

:18:58.:19:01.

on a building may have been seen as their mark. Not long ago, painting

vandalism. But it has been elevated to street art. And it is turning

:19:06.:19:09.

heads. Areas surrounding the artworks are already busy. This is

pumping hopes of an economic spin off. -- prompting. When we are gone,

landmarks for the city. -- the work. First-rate artists, wherever there

:19:29.:19:31.

is a wall, there is a canvas, and the chance to change the look of a

:19:32.:19:33.

city, perhaps forever. The new head coach of the Scotland

:19:34.:19:35.

women's football team says the appointment is the

:19:36.:19:38.

pinnacle of her career. Shelley Kerr, the former Arsenal

:19:39.:19:40.

ladies and Hibs boss, will take charge in the summer

:19:41.:19:43.

after the European Championships There is a wind of change blowing

:19:44.:19:58.

through the women's game in Scotland. Well at national level,

:19:59.:20:03.

anyway. Time to meet the new head coach. I think this is the pinnacle.

:20:04.:20:09.

I have been involved for such a long time. I mentioned before how proud I

:20:10.:20:13.

was to captain my country, but to be sitting here today and to be the

:20:14.:20:18.

national coach, it is a dream, grow true. The former head coach of

:20:19.:20:24.

Arsenal ladies has been around football for more than 30 years. She

:20:25.:20:28.

has 59 caps for her country. She has played for the likes of Hearts, Hibs

:20:29.:20:34.

and Spartans. She has been in charge at the Scotland under 19 level,

:20:35.:20:40.

Arsenal and Stirling University. Her appointment comes before the squad

:20:41.:20:45.

head off for the European Championships in the summer, and

:20:46.:20:47.

although she will not be involved, she will be there. Shelley will

:20:48.:20:53.

Glasgow has scored one of the fastest goals in world football.

:21:31.:21:31.

Maryhill midfielder Gavin Stokes scored what is one of the fastest

goals in world football, when he netted from the kick-off

:21:34.:21:36.

Stokes' drive from the halfway line took 3.2 seconds to fly past

You might not have it in your diary, but tonight is Yuri's Night -

:21:48.:21:51.

named after Yuri Gagarin, the first man in space.

:21:52.:21:54.

It's a global celebration of space exploration,

:21:55.:21:57.

and at Edinburgh's Usher Hall they're holding a concert.

:21:58.:22:00.

The bill includes a band that mixes music with recordings

:22:01.:22:02.

Kenneth Macdonald is awaiting lift-off.

:22:03.:22:15.

On this day in 1961, Yuri Gargarin went on a journey, first by bus,

:22:16.:22:23.

then out of this world. He was the first human being to leave the

:22:24.:22:27.

planet, and that's why worldwide this night is celebrated as Yuri's

:22:28.:22:33.

Night. And this year, the Edinburgh science Festival has decided to

:22:34.:22:34.

market in a rather special way. Just science Festival has decided to

:22:35.:22:43.

across the road in the Usher Hall. The band public service broadcasting

:22:44.:22:46.

rehearsing for tonight's commemorative concert. Their most

:22:47.:22:49.

recent album mixes music with samples from the golden age of human

:22:50.:22:51.

space flight. They have taken the excitement of

:22:52.:23:07.

the 1960s and interpreted it for a new generation. It is music with a

:23:08.:23:14.

message. I just find it really depressing that people kind of

:23:15.:23:18.

doubted it happened. It is the world we live in and the nature of

:23:19.:23:22.

humanity, I suppose. This is our attempt to push back against it. If

:23:23.:23:26.

people are becoming excited by some of these events again, that's great.

:23:27.:23:33.

Yuri's Night has been described as a world space party, a celebration of

:23:34.:23:36.

space flight and in particular of the achievement of one man. Yuri

:23:37.:23:41.

Gargarin was never allowed to fly into space again. He died in a plane

crash aged just 34. What struck me watching the footage of him was that

:23:47.:23:51.

he was a superstar, he was the Soviet mascot, a great propaganda

victory. But with himself, you could see this kind of warmth and

:24:00.:24:03.

genuineness, and a very cheery looking guy. It made his early

:24:04.:24:08.

demise all the more saddening, really. He seems to have lightened

:24:09.:24:13.

the presence in the world. Public service broadcasting will play their

:24:14.:24:17.

album in full, commented by strings and acquire. By then a light show

:24:18.:24:23.

and a giant model Sputnik will be in place for one of the more unusual

:24:24.:24:24.

events of the festival. Good evening. Today has brought a

:24:25.:24:38.

mixture of sunshine and showers. Looking glorious in Portobello

:24:39.:24:41.

earlier today. Thank you to one of our Weather Watchers. I suspected

:24:42.:24:45.

distinctly chilly feel as it has been across the country today. Plus

:24:46.:24:51.

free north-westerly winds. This evening and tonight that showery

:24:52.:24:55.

theme continues. Mainly in the West and north. The showers being driven

:24:56.:25:00.

in on fresh to strong north-westerly winds, only gradually easing as we

:25:01.:25:06.

go through the night. A lot of dry weather in eastern Scotland. Some

:25:07.:25:09.

clear spells allowing perhaps a touch of grass frost to develop in

:25:10.:25:11.

clear spells allowing perhaps a some sheltered glens. Otherwise

:25:12.:25:15.

though, for the most part, temperatures holding up at four to

:25:16.:25:19.

five Celsius. Tomorrow dawns with a lot of dry weather in the East with

:25:20.:25:22.

spells of sunshine. Generally though as we go through the day, it will

:25:23.:25:28.

cloud over from the West. These showers continuing to affect western

:25:29.:25:33.

and northern areas primarily. The best of any sunshine tomorrow

:25:34.:25:36.

afternoon reserved for the eastern borders and some eastern coastal

:25:37.:25:47.

areas, where temperatures will peak at 13 Celsius. Generally though, a

:25:48.:25:49.

lot of cloud and showers. They will merge across the north-west

:25:50.:25:51.

Highlands and the Northern Isles give longer spells of rain.

:25:52.:25:53.

Generally tomorrow, the winds will be that bit later than in recent

:25:54.:25:56.

days. Although it won't feel too much milder given the cloud and the

:25:57.:26:02.

showers. Into tomorrow evening, that showery theme continues,

:26:03.:26:05.

particularly across the north, where they will be very frequent and

:26:06.:26:09.

heavy. Looking ahead to Good Friday, again, there will be a good deal of

:26:10.:26:12.

cloud with showers and affecting much of the West and the war. The

:26:13.:26:16.

best of the sunshine will be towards eastern areas. A cold feel on Friday

:26:17.:26:24.

again, with brisk westerly winds. On Saturday, the weather is stuck...

:26:25.:26:33.

Showers, some bright spells, called winds.

:26:34.:26:36.

Wintry showers at Easter, Shirley? winds.

:26:37.:26:38.

Not unusual. I'll be back with the headlines

:26:39.:26:41.

at eight, and the late bulletin just after the ten O'Clock News.

:26:42.:26:45.

Until then, have a good evening.

:26:46.:26:49.
