That's Newsnight, starting over on BBC Two.

:00:00.:00:00.

Here, on BBC One, it's time for the news where you are.

:00:00.:00:00.

Scottish exports are up across the board -

:00:00.:00:09.

in the UK, to the EU and other international markets.

:00:10.:00:13.

Scottish Government figures show that sales from Scotland to the rest

:00:14.:00:15.

of the UK are four times as big as those to the EU.

:00:16.:00:20.

Here's our business and economy editor, Douglas Fraser.

:00:21.:00:30.

This factory has just hit four-figure sales

:00:31.:00:33.

Trade winds bring orders from all over the world.

:00:34.:00:38.

Most used to go to UK customers, but now most customers are foreign.

:00:39.:00:43.

There is a lot of need in Britain and Europe but we also sell turbines

:00:44.:00:48.

If the US is building walls around it, export could get more difficult.

:00:49.:01:07.

There is a lack of clarity, but when things change, there are also new

:01:08.:01:09.

opportunities. The increase in wind power is one

:01:10.:01:10.

of the reasons why Scotland The total increase in sales

:01:11.:01:13.

in 2015 was around 4%. Of that, ?50 billion

:01:14.:01:17.

was sold to the rest of the United Kingdom,

:01:18.:01:19.

and beyond, the rest of the world, ?29 billion, and within that,

:01:20.:01:23.

?12 billion sold to the rest Viewed from Holyrood,

:01:24.:01:28.

ministers said the figures prove that Scotland must maintain free

:01:29.:01:35.

access to the single market. We appreciate the extent

:01:36.:01:39.

to which our nearest neighbour is very important but that does not

:01:40.:01:43.

mean we should not have an eye on the potential we can have

:01:44.:01:46.

for our economy with the rest of the EU and the worst thing to do

:01:47.:01:50.

would be to jeopardise Viewed from Westminster, ministers

:01:51.:02:06.

say Scottish business and jobs are much more reliant on British

:02:07.:02:07.

markets. Four times as many exports go

:02:08.:02:09.

to the rest of the United Kingdom than go to the EU, but of course

:02:10.:02:12.

the EU is important. Let's focus on our partners

:02:13.:02:15.

and friends in the rest of the UK because that is where the really

:02:16.:02:18.

significant impact on our economy is coming and we should

not be doing anything, Most sales to the rest of Britain

:02:22.:02:23.

are services rather than goods. The biggest export figure

:02:24.:02:27.

is whiskey, showing it is the biggest net contributor

to Britain's trade position. The biggest export market

:02:30.:02:34.

remains the United States. We are looking for a trade deal

:02:35.:02:39.

to improve the trade All the more important there is a

Details of a collision involving a US and a Soviet vessel 40 years

:05:32.:05:34.

encounter have come to light. A top-secret memo sent

to the Secretary of State Henry Kissinger in 1974,

which has just been declassified by the CIA, revealed a crash

between a US and Russian submarine, What we know from the memo is that
