In the South: we have been finding out about the Government's planned

Welcome to Sunday politics out. Coming up: Five locations in the

:29:54.:29:59.

south are up for grabs has the Government plans to get local TV

:29:59.:30:09.
:30:09.:30:10.

made by local people. Paul Hearty is an if Labour councillor and Ian

:30:10.:30:17.

Hunt what is the new Conservative leader of a local council. What do

:30:17.:30:27.

you intend to do it be a fully? was part of the Conservative

:30:27.:30:31.

manifesto in 2009 so there will be no radical changes. I have been

:30:31.:30:40.

part of the process of the Budget, so it is about the style difference.

:30:40.:30:46.

The people who say, why don't you change things, they Conservatives?

:30:46.:30:54.

It is said Labour-dominated council, isn't it? It is, but we have four

:30:54.:30:57.

other district councils as well and we have a good relationship with

:30:57.:31:02.

them. Without a working relationship, local government

:31:02.:31:06.

would just grind to a halt. We need to put aside her differences and

:31:06.:31:16.
:31:16.:31:16.

work together. So, it is a fresh start? It is for me. Basingstoke is

:31:16.:31:22.

one of those places that is a three-way split. He did well at the

:31:22.:31:28.

expense of Liberal-Democrats. are now the official opposition and

:31:28.:31:33.

the Liberal Democrats have fallen back. It is quite a step forward

:31:34.:31:39.

for us. What would you put that down to? Communication with

:31:39.:31:43.

residents. Good candidates on the doorstep talking to people about

:31:43.:31:53.
:31:53.:31:58.

what they care about and translating that into action.

:31:58.:32:08.
:32:08.:32:10.

they were seen as Tony Blair, flagship policy, the ASBO. It was

:32:10.:32:13.

claimed they became a bit of the badge of honour, that the month --

:32:13.:32:20.

but now they are going, criminal behaviour orders are going to

:32:20.:32:26.

replace them. That idea is going to be piloted over in Brighton and

:32:26.:32:36.
:32:36.:32:38.

Hove. These community triggers, how would that work? The Community

:32:38.:32:42.

trigger is an interesting opportunity for us and brightened

:32:42.:32:45.

and Hove. It gives us a real opportunity to build on some of the

:32:45.:32:51.

strong work that we have been doing with communities from way back in

:32:51.:32:57.

2003. We're interested in this. We recognise that we want to get it

:32:57.:33:06.

right first time when people report to us. Were we don't get it right

:33:06.:33:12.

first time, we want to get it right for them. Where were you struggling

:33:12.:33:21.

with ASBOs? We weren't. They were just taking us longer than we would

:33:22.:33:25.

have liked. It was becoming bureaucratic and in some cases

:33:25.:33:31.

quite costly because you're working with the courts. The suggestion

:33:31.:33:38.

from some is that this is just a rebranding exercise, and getting

:33:38.:33:42.

rid of some of the subtleties of ASBOs? The interesting thing is

:33:42.:33:49.

that they contain opportunities to work with offenders, to address

:33:49.:33:57.

their underlying causes of their behaviour. For example, three new

:33:57.:34:01.

criminal behaviour order, you can prohibit somebody from doing

:34:01.:34:06.

something, but you could add into a positive requirement which the

:34:06.:34:14.

court can put in place. For example, an individual to seek treatment.

:34:14.:34:19.

You are not only tackling the anti- social behaviour, but the

:34:19.:34:27.

underlying cause as, hopefully. sound like Tony Blair! Are you

:34:27.:34:35.

annoyed to see ASBOs being replaced? Everything needs to grow.

:34:35.:34:42.

It is having the services to go with that. What we're seeing it is

:34:42.:34:47.

all well and good to give them a criminal behaviour order, but in

:34:47.:34:53.

Hampshire we have seen the youth services lose �4 million. It is no

:34:53.:34:57.

good to have these things if you can follow it up with a support

:34:57.:35:05.

surface. -- surface. It is all well and good to have a name, but if you

:35:05.:35:12.

don't stop would change people's behaviour, that is a real issue.

:35:12.:35:19.

Have you got the resources? For us in Brighton, there are some real

:35:19.:35:22.

opportunities in the positive requirements to these orders that

:35:23.:35:26.

were never there before. Having a positive requirement written into

:35:26.:35:32.

an order would help us to have that conversation with their clients,

:35:32.:35:37.

the perpetrator, and say your behaviour needs to change. But you

:35:37.:35:42.

need a properly qualified person to have that. We are confident that we

:35:42.:35:48.

have the people to do that. If you have good resources from a

:35:48.:35:53.

partnership of the agencies working together, you can achieve some of

:35:53.:35:57.

the stuff without having lots of resources. He is talking in a very

:35:57.:36:05.

supportive way, but I thought this idea was to send a stronger message,

:36:05.:36:12.

to stop them being a badge of honour. Yes, we have made savings

:36:12.:36:17.

in Oxfordshire in her youth services, but we have stripped out

:36:17.:36:22.

the management. We have an early intervention service that pulls

:36:22.:36:26.

together the youth service, drug misuse, Supporting families and it

:36:26.:36:36.

is providing that service of all the people working together. So it

:36:36.:36:41.

can be very easy to say just throw them in jail, but the best thing is

:36:41.:36:44.

to deal with it and you need to make sure you have the facilities

:36:44.:36:54.
:36:54.:37:05.

there. If you have a resident, an issue, you ring 999. But we have

:37:05.:37:15.
:37:15.:37:22.

lost those 999 officers. And you are quite confident that this makes

:37:22.:37:28.

the thing simpler? I think it will make it less bureaucratic and

:37:29.:37:38.
:37:39.:37:39.

considerably cheaper. If over time it case law will be added up, but I

:37:39.:37:45.

think it is the opportunity for a fresh start to protect vulnerable

:37:45.:37:49.

individuals from the harm of anti- social behaviour and hate crime.

:37:49.:37:57.

that with the scheme. And the culture secretary has been paying a

:37:57.:38:01.

lot of attention lately to broadcasting of an uncapped -- of

:38:01.:38:07.

an entirely different scale than BSkyB. People got together in

:38:08.:38:11.

Birmingham to discuss the value of the emerging market, but not

:38:11.:38:20.

everyone thinks the idea will work. He is the film director who brought

:38:20.:38:23.

us Midnight Express and Pudsey Malone, but Alan Parker's

:38:23.:38:28.

appearance today is being recorded on a budget substantially below

:38:28.:38:33.

that of a Hollywood blockbuster. The students of Solent University

:38:33.:38:41.

are running this recording, calling the shots from the gallery. This is

:38:41.:38:46.

part of their education and later this year Solent hopes to be the

:38:46.:38:50.

first educational institution to be granted a licence for the own

:38:50.:38:56.

broadcast television station. are looking at a more radical

:38:56.:38:59.

conception of how we might want to do things, looking at different

:38:59.:39:03.

audiences at different times of the day and the kind of content that is

:39:03.:39:13.
:39:13.:39:14.

rather more challenging. We want to involve our students in the project.

:39:14.:39:19.

We want work that is carried out as an assessed part of the curriculum.

:39:19.:39:22.

Setanta has won a five places in the south were bids are being

:39:22.:39:31.

prepared. Local newspapers have been doing just this for many years,

:39:31.:39:37.

of course. Some have successfully introduced video reports, but the

:39:37.:39:44.

history of local television is not so good. Portsmouth TV's of

:39:44.:39:51.

financial failure led to employment tribunals. There have been

:39:51.:39:56.

successes at a very local level. don't think it is about figures,

:39:56.:40:01.

though we are blessed with good viewing figures. Barry is on his

:40:01.:40:06.

way to For on the story for which the TV. He set up the service two

:40:07.:40:15.

years ago using volunteers. For volunteer reporters, this is not

:40:15.:40:22.

about building a media career, but about being part of the community.

:40:22.:40:28.

It builds the community. Rather than being spread out across all of

:40:28.:40:31.

Oxfordshire thumb a you get to see the same people, the same events

:40:31.:40:39.

and you get a real feel for the community. We are at the parish

:40:39.:40:48.

community newsletter but online and with pictures. There is plenty to

:40:48.:40:53.

put on air, apart from being the Prime Minister's constituency,

:40:53.:40:58.

there is a steady supply of interviews with people such as

:40:58.:41:08.
:41:08.:41:09.

Jeremy Clarkson. Whitney TV is run on a shoestring in Barry's front

:41:09.:41:16.

room. Before I started working here, I didn't have a clue about anything

:41:16.:41:24.

that goes on and I think that is why I love doing it so much because

:41:24.:41:30.

you don't realise what goes on in your community. People should look

:41:30.:41:33.

at the Community Channel as a surface, not as a money-making

:41:33.:41:37.

exercise, because it of thing that has what it should be. That is one

:41:37.:41:41.

of the reasons why we have stepped back ants decided not to go for a

:41:41.:41:50.

licence. That is why I decided to go for something on the internet. I

:41:50.:41:53.

think a commercial exercise will fail.

:41:53.:41:57.

Back in Southampton, to the university students know what

:41:57.:42:02.

they're letting themselves in for? With a dozen full-time staff and a

:42:02.:42:07.

half million pound budget, the programmes will be made to the

:42:07.:42:13.

highest standards. If you can utilise and resource it has already

:42:13.:42:18.

there within the university, that his equipment and space, and if you

:42:19.:42:24.

can and all students in the kind of work of the station, it seems to be

:42:24.:42:28.

a win-win situation and one that is most likely to make this

:42:28.:42:34.

commercially viable. The university does have deep pockets. They say

:42:34.:42:39.

they are prepared to absorb losses were three or four years as

:42:39.:42:45.

audiences grow. This time around, local TV might even make money. So,

:42:45.:42:51.

set and then, Oxford, Brighton in the first five. You like that idea

:42:51.:43:01.
:43:01.:43:02.

of a community group of people, rather than the anoraks, not other

:43:02.:43:08.

one to call them anoraks! It is good that's it is genuine, it is

:43:08.:43:13.

real events in the local area. It is at the level work I can

:43:13.:43:18.

communicate something different. Basingstoke the council might take

:43:18.:43:22.

a stake in this come into it and Dundee University. Be some

:43:22.:43:27.

broadcasters. No, but it is about the community, what is going on in

:43:27.:43:32.

your neighbourhood. The idea of bringing into students from

:43:32.:43:36.

colleges and people who can get skills through this is a good idea

:43:36.:43:43.

because then they own it and feel good about it. It is about the

:43:43.:43:50.

community. Oxford has tried local TV. It tried and failed. The

:43:50.:43:54.

difficulty is sometimes they are trying to be too big. They have got

:43:54.:43:59.

to be part of the community and stick to the community. We need TV

:43:59.:44:03.

doesn't have the aspiration to take over the world's but they just want

:44:03.:44:08.

to concentrate on what the and the surrounding areas. I think that is

:44:08.:44:13.

what's people have to set their sights on. They have got a lot of

:44:13.:44:18.

good stories in with me! We are looking for an exclusive with David

:44:18.:44:28.
:44:28.:44:32.

Cameron forced stop advertising which the TV! So, the sun is

:44:32.:44:36.

shining and next weekend the Long Jubilee Bank Holiday is a critical

:44:36.:44:45.

time for the tourist industry. Are they smiling? With the now is the

:44:45.:44:49.

director of tourism for Bournemouth. This sun makes a phenomenal

:44:49.:44:54.

difference. We are looking at four times the number of people coming

:44:54.:45:01.

on to our website, so 300,000 people a month. Is that people from

:45:01.:45:09.

here staying at home or overseas visitors? Mostly people from the UK.

:45:09.:45:17.

People who came initially perhaps because they had to light that ants

:45:17.:45:27.
:45:27.:45:27.

-- they liked it and had decided to come back. And the New Forest,

:45:27.:45:32.

Bournemouth, wonderful experiences. A whole generation of young people

:45:32.:45:36.

never experienced it. A lot of young people are trying it now for

:45:36.:45:43.

the first time. The Olympics opening ceremony dope, people are

:45:43.:45:50.

seeing -- are saying that half the population of the world will see it.

:45:50.:45:57.

Will we get results? Here we have an international education business,

:45:57.:46:04.

so the profiling of business do that to greet could be really

:46:04.:46:11.

important for us. The legacy value up that could be tremendous. Are we

:46:11.:46:18.

prepared? We are trying to bring up the standard of British tourism, is

:46:18.:46:24.

it getting better? Yes, but it is not just about the Olympics, it is

:46:24.:46:29.

about the standard of our accommodation, are attractions. We

:46:30.:46:39.
:46:40.:46:42.

have a whole programme of events, a lot of them are free for people.

:46:42.:46:50.

Even on a rainy day? Others will things to do? Even on a rainy day.

:46:50.:46:53.

The entertainment is what we can do fantastically well in this country.

:46:53.:47:01.

We can put on a fantastic show. With the weather so good -- when

:47:01.:47:11.

the weather is not so good, you have a whole range of indoor events.

:47:11.:47:21.
:47:21.:47:26.

A regular round-up of the political It was full steam ahead for

:47:26.:47:29.

Liverpool's cruise ship plants, that the minister still has to

:47:29.:47:31.

persuade the European Commission that he has not staged at

:47:31.:47:38.

Southampton. What you're doing is legal, fair. I can see why the

:47:38.:47:42.

commission would have a problem. Despite protests, Sainsbury's is

:47:42.:47:47.

coming to a Hampshire market town, that Bishop's Waltham will be

:47:47.:47:52.

watching. There is a survey going on. All we need to do is to capture

:47:52.:48:02.
:48:02.:48:06.

the high street. From shops to squat. Brighton's might where the

:48:06.:48:12.

elite had the Prime Minister's backing for tough action. After a

:48:12.:48:19.

hot week, how about some cool jazz. A committee of MPs and Lords

:48:19.:48:25.

declared boxwood's spin club the top venues. You can't beat a good

:48:25.:48:35.
:48:35.:48:41.

swing in politics! I haven't been. You haven't been! I don't believe

:48:41.:48:50.

it. Is in jazz sure thing? really, to be honest. I suppose

:48:50.:49:00.
:49:00.:49:00.

you're trying to get Labour back again. Talking about ASBOs, that

:49:00.:49:04.

now seems to be going and we're going for criminalisation come a

:49:04.:49:11.

lot tougher. Is that the new approach? What happens in reality

:49:11.:49:17.

is another thing. The government are Great's -- the government are

:49:17.:49:26.

graded gimmicks. It is transparency, but the economy as well. It the
