BBC Two or at Here on BBC One it's time

:00:00.:00:00.

for the news where you are. The SNP narrowly avoided defeat

:00:00.:00:12.

on council tax reforms tonight, because Labour leader

:00:13.:00:15.

Kezia Dugdale failed to vote. Earlier, a majority of MSPs backed

:00:16.:00:17.

a Conservative amendment which said the Government's

:00:18.:00:20.

council tax proposals But when it came to

:00:21.:00:21.

the final decision, Labour insists its Scottish leader

:00:22.:00:24.

did vote on the motion, which was defeated only

:00:25.:00:32.

on the casting vote of Yes, 63. No, 63. There were no

:00:33.:00:50.

abstentions. As the boat is tight and we have been unable to reach a

:00:51.:00:55.

view on emotion, I have to exercise my casting vote. In line with the

:00:56.:01:00.

approach taken by my predecessors, I will cast against the motion. The

:01:01.:01:06.

Well, the Scottish Parliament says its checked the electronic

:01:07.:01:09.

voting system in the chamber and found it to be

:01:10.:01:11.

Our Correspondent, Andrew Kerr reports.

:01:12.:01:15.

It was a day of high drama here at Holyrood after a rather pedestrian

:01:16.:01:23.

start to the afternoon. Labourer, Lib Dems and the Greens are angry

:01:24.:01:27.

with the Scottish Government because they promise to scrap council tax,

:01:28.:01:30.

but haven't done so. The Conservatives are upstairs to --

:01:31.:01:38.

upset, to. They say money will be taken from the local authorities to

:01:39.:01:45.

pay for and attainment gap fund. There was a final vote when MSPs

:01:46.:01:52.

were tied at 63 - 63. There was a bit of a mystery, who was that

:01:53.:01:57.

missing MSP? The Presiding Officer Ken Macintosh had to use his casting

:01:58.:02:01.

vote and it saved the Government from defeat as he would do to

:02:02.:02:07.

preserve the status quo. It emerged that the missing vote, the missing

:02:08.:02:11.

MSP, was none other than the Scottish Labour leader Kezia

:02:12.:02:15.

Dugdale. She says she did vote demanding an investigation. I

:02:16.:02:20.

categorically voted in the parliament might. I know that, my

:02:21.:02:25.

colleague was at my site and soggy vote register. We have to know from

:02:26.:02:30.

the pilot meant why my vote was not registered. The SNP made a promise

:02:31.:02:34.

saying they would scrap council tax, they have failed to do that. But

:02:35.:02:41.

despite opposite parties are uniting to make. Ruck she is very upset at

:02:42.:02:46.

the unfolding of events. The SNP have released a statement calling

:02:47.:02:53.

her a Lone Ranger. They say she is taking her new-found autonomy

:02:54.:02:56.

literally. This is the date because of labourer making changes to

:02:57.:03:00.

structures. Labour are calling for an investigation into the Parliament

:03:01.:03:04.

putts voting system. The parliament said they have checked the voting

:03:05.:03:08.

system and are satisfied it is working properly. A bit of a mystery

:03:09.:03:13.

tonight, but real frustration from the opposition today that the

:03:14.:03:17.

Scottish Government managed not to be defeated tonight.

:03:18.:03:17.

Scotland's independent police watchdog is to carry out a review

:03:18.:03:21.

of undercover policing, after the UK Government refused

:03:22.:03:23.

to extend an investigation currently underway in England and Wales.

:03:24.:03:25.

The Scottish Government has asked the Inspector

:03:26.:03:27.

of Constabulary to investigate, claiming there's evidence

:03:28.:03:29.

that units from south of the border operated here.

:03:30.:03:35.

There have been claims that some English officers worked

:03:36.:03:47.

undercover with activists, who were planning to disrupt the G8

:03:48.:03:49.

meeting at Gleneagles in 2005, and had sexual relations

:03:50.:03:51.

Offshore workers have voted to accept a new pay

:03:52.:04:04.

The dispute sparked the first strikes offshore

:04:05.:04:06.

Members of the Unite and RMT unions, who work for oil services company

:04:07.:04:11.

Wood Group, have voted for a revised offer.

:04:12.:04:13.

A series of stoppages took place on seven Shell platforms

:04:14.:04:15.

Police are investigating after messages were posted

:04:16.:04:18.

on the internet featuring convicted religious killer Tanveer Ahmed.

:04:19.:04:20.

They were apparently recorded in phone calls

:04:21.:04:22.

from Barlinnie Prison, and contain mainly religious thoughts.

:04:23.:04:23.

Ahmed was convicted last July for murdering Glasgow

:04:24.:04:25.

The way some of our most vulnerable people are cared

:04:26.:04:35.

for needs to change, to stop costs getting

:04:36.:04:39.

That's according to the public spending watchdog.

:04:40.:04:41.

Otherwise nearly ?700 million will need

:04:42.:04:43.

to be found to pay for social work and social care by 2020.

:04:44.:04:46.

Here's our local Government correspondent Jamie McIvor.

:04:47.:04:50.

Karen is one of Scotland's's army of unpaid

:04:51.:04:54.

She gets a lot of help from charity worker Susan.

:04:55.:05:02.

Karen's partner is diagnosed with a form of

:05:03.:05:03.

He went into the doctors office as a working man, and left as

:05:04.:05:12.

The practical help Karen is receiving makes a huge difference.

:05:13.:05:17.

Even a advice on household goods that are suitable for people with

:05:18.:05:20.

It all means social services do not need

:05:21.:05:26.

to get involved, at a cost of

:05:27.:05:29.

People support them, to maintain their own confidence as

:05:30.:05:32.

This all highlights a very big debate -

:05:33.:05:36.

just what sort of social services can the taxpayer ruler

:05:37.:05:39.

Are elderly people are consuming more of the social

:05:40.:05:45.

work budget, the demand in the system, demographic change,

:05:46.:05:48.

highlighted the fact there is not enough money, it is making things

:05:49.:05:51.

But it is hard to divorce this debate about what is

:05:52.:06:07.

best to those who need help from simple questions of saving cash.

:06:08.:06:09.

This led to fierce exchanges at Holyrood.

:06:10.:06:11.

And the truth is, the

:06:12.:06:12.

accounts commission report tells us that overall spending is falling,

:06:13.:06:15.

In fact, it says that these cuts or unsustainable.

:06:16.:06:18.

And the truth is, they do not have to happen.

:06:19.:06:20.

I'm only asking because Sturgeon to do what she has wanted

:06:21.:06:23.

to do her retire political life, make different choices from the

:06:24.:06:25.

I would ask her to reflect on the position she

:06:26.:06:38.

She stands up regularly and says that the future

:06:39.:06:44.

looks to be a Tory future in terms of the Westminster government, and

:06:45.:06:47.

yet she has got the nerve to come here and lecture me about the

:06:48.:06:50.

implications of Tory cuts that her party are powerless to do anything

:06:51.:06:53.

One important thing the Scottish Government has been doing

:06:54.:06:59.

is integrating health and social care.

:07:00.:07:02.

The report argues that the people who rely on the service

:07:03.:07:06.

and the wider public must be more involved in shaping its future,

:07:07.:07:09.

saying fundamental decisions have to be taken on how services

:07:10.:07:11.

are provided, and calls for a wider debate on the level, nature

:07:12.:07:14.

What would seem clear from this report is that the status

:07:15.:07:23.

Six more men have been arrested in connection with disorder

:07:24.:07:31.

Police have now made a total of 76 arrests,

:07:32.:07:34.

following the pitch invasion at the Hibernian-Rangers match

:07:35.:07:36.

A Celtic fan is to stand trial, charged with displaying an offensive

:07:37.:07:41.

banner and blow-up figures at an Old Firm match.

:07:42.:07:43.

27-year-old Ross Brady entered a plea of not guilty

:07:44.:07:46.

at an appearance at Glasgow Sheriff Court.

:07:47.:07:47.

Prosecutors claim he acted with others in behaviour

:07:48.:07:49.

that might be likely to incite public disorder.

:07:50.:07:51.

Brady faces a single charge under the Offensive

:07:52.:07:53.

Rangers will play Celtic and Aberdeen will play Martin.

:07:54.:08:19.

The songs of Robert Burns are often performed in a way that

:08:20.:08:22.

focusses on the words rather than complex musical arrangements.

:08:23.:08:24.

But researchers at Glasgow University have recorded some

:08:25.:08:26.

of his works as they would have been performed in the 18th century.

:08:27.:08:29.

The result has more in common with middle class Edinburgh drawing

:08:30.:08:32.

rooms than Dumfries drinking howffs, as Aileen Clarke reports.

:08:33.:08:38.

This song doesn't sound half as bawdy in this very refined

:08:39.:08:43.

Burns, of course, wrote the lyrics using

:08:44.:08:54.

But when he submitted the songs to his

:08:55.:08:57.

Edinburgh publishers well, those tunes were given a very classical

:08:58.:08:59.

What we've never really appreciated is that most of those

:09:00.:09:07.

songs, the vast majority of Burns's songs were collected or written for

:09:08.:09:09.

two rather posh, published collections of songs.

:09:10.:09:11.

And because they were part of an 18th-century

:09:12.:09:13.

musical culture they sound a bit classical,

:09:14.:09:15.

they sound a bit fancy in

:09:16.:09:16.

comparison to the more, kind of, songs on guitar or songs with fiddle

:09:17.:09:19.

or the more folk settings that a lot of people appreciate.

:09:20.:09:22.

Burns, the 18th-century remix, has been recorded and has been published

:09:23.:09:30.

The culmination of a five year research project funded to

:09:31.:09:43.

the tune of ?1 million by the UK arts fund.

:09:44.:09:46.

This would have sounded quite fancy played on a drawing-room harpsichord

:09:47.:09:52.

and it has given this classical musician involved in the recording

:09:53.:09:54.

I was quite surprised at the beginning of

:09:55.:10:03.

the project to learn of

:10:04.:10:04.

composers such as Beethoven who have written musical settings for Burns's

:10:05.:10:09.

poetry, burns's international reach is expanding all the time and able

:10:10.:10:12.

to influence these men classical composers.

:10:13.:10:16.

His appreciation of Burns came from her father in the musical Bill.

:10:17.:10:19.

For him I think Burns worked better unaccompanied, or with a nice

:10:20.:10:22.

setting that kind of, you know, brought out the nuances of the text.

:10:23.:10:25.

Burns for these collections were so important

:10:26.:10:45.

that he gave his songs for

:10:46.:10:47.

Burns, of course, is warmly regarded as the people's poet.

:10:48.:10:52.

But it's clear that he himself was also

:10:53.:10:54.

keen to be celebrated in the smart drawing

:10:55.:10:56.

style that echoed that of his artistic peers.

:10:57.:11:06.

But as he would have said himself a man's Dame Ann for

:11:07.:11:08.

Well, It's over to Kirsteen now with the weather outlook

north-west of Scotland when that rain set in, it really stays with us
