I'm Victoria Derbyshire. Welcome to the programme.

:00:00.:00:12.

20 million of us play video games in the UK.

:00:13.:00:15.

If you're a woman though sometimes it's just not fun.

:00:16.:00:17.

Women gamers tell us about the vicious abuse including

:00:18.:00:19.

The guy says, "I'm going to find out where you live and come and kill

:00:20.:00:30.

you." He said horrible things like that all the time.

:00:31.:00:33.

REPORTER: Did he? That's why, that was the final straw.

:00:34.:00:38.

We will let you know what YouTube and other sites are doing about it.

:00:39.:00:41.

After Sam Allardyce had to leave his job as England manager

:00:42.:00:44.

for "inappropriate conduct" exposed by the Daily Telegraph,

:00:45.:01:00.

today the paper reports that eight current or former played one won

:01:01.:01:04.

It's leader's speech day at the Labour conference in Liverpool -

:01:05.:01:09.

the day in which the party leader traditionally sets

:01:10.:01:11.

What will his vision for a Labour government be?

:01:12.:01:16.

And how will he reunite his divided party?

:01:17.:01:27.

Hello and welcome to the programme. We're live until 11am.

:01:28.:01:34.

It wasn't that long ago I was asking those of you who are England

:01:35.:01:37.

supporters who you thought the next England manager should be.

:01:38.:01:40.

After Sam Allardyce left Wembley hiding in the back

:01:41.:01:44.

of a car last night, humiliated and out of the job

:01:45.:01:52.

Who do you think the next head coach should be?

:01:53.:01:54.

Use the hashtag Victoria live and If you text, you will be charged

:01:55.:01:57.

Sam Allardyce says he is "deeply disappointed" to have left his role

:01:58.:02:02.

It came after he had offered advice on how to "get around" player

:02:03.:02:07.

transfer rules to undercover reporters from the Daily Telegraph

:02:08.:02:09.

As the FA begins its search for a new manager, it has been hit

:02:10.:02:16.

with fresh revelations in today's Telegraph with eight current

:02:17.:02:21.

or former Premier League managers accused of taking cash backhanders.

:02:22.:02:23.

There's a bit of flash photography in Andy Moore's report.

:02:24.:02:25.

After 67 days in the job, Sam Allardyce left Wembley last

:02:26.:02:28.

night with a 100% success rate from his one match in charge.

:02:29.:02:32.

He admitted a serious error of judgement and the FA were happy

:02:33.:02:35.

One of the things we have to do as a governing body is hold

:02:36.:02:42.

Sam admitted he hadn't met those high standards.

:02:43.:02:45.

It all began with such high hopes and high expectations.

:02:46.:02:50.

I can't stop smiling because I've this job.

:02:51.:02:56.

This is a job I have waited for for many years

:02:57.:02:59.

But it was a newspaper sting that caused his downfall.

:03:00.:03:06.

He talked about getting around strict rules on transfer deals

:03:07.:03:09.

and tried to negotiate a ?400,000 deal on top

:03:10.:03:11.

Today, the Telegraph accuses some Premier League managers

:03:12.:03:18.

of doing dodgy deals, but nobody is named.

:03:19.:03:20.

One agent said a fallen manager had had more backhanders than Wimbledon.

:03:21.:03:49.

Two of those agents have now denied wrongdoing, saying they were telling

:03:50.:03:52.

tall tales to impress their would-be clients.

:03:53.:03:55.

There are now calls for the FA to mount an independent inquiry

:03:56.:03:59.

They've been talking about Uefa and Fifa and saying they should

:04:00.:04:04.

I think the FA need to move and deal with this in a way

:04:05.:04:09.

The question now is whether the Telegraph investigation may

:04:10.:04:19.

Tell us more detail about the revelations today, apparently

:04:20.:04:35.

involving eight current or former Premier League managers? Yes, well

:04:36.:04:39.

the FA at Wembley has to deal with these allegations here in the Daily

:04:40.:04:44.

Telegraph, eight current or former Premier League managers. Two

:04:45.:04:48.

Championship managers as well we're told. None of them are named in the

:04:49.:04:54.

paper today. But the accusation is that they took so-called bungs,

:04:55.:05:00.

that's cash or money into Swiss bank accounts to help a transfer go

:05:01.:05:04.

through. The Telegraph will be naming, they say, later on in the

:05:05.:05:08.

week an assistant manager, at a leading club and they say they

:05:09.:05:13.

filmed that man accepting a ?5,000 cash payment. This is all part of a

:05:14.:05:18.

ten month long investigation under taken by The Daily Telegraph. They

:05:19.:05:22.

say they will give transcripts to the FA of their evidence. They say

:05:23.:05:26.

they've also given evidence to the police so there is always the

:05:27.:05:30.

possibility that there might be criminal investigations into bribery

:05:31.:05:36.

and corruption. Meanwhile the FA here has appointed a

:05:37.:05:39.

caretaker-manager, that's the under 21 boss Gareth Southgate. He will be

:05:40.:05:44.

leading the England squad for at least four games in October and

:05:45.:05:48.

November. The first game is just over a week away. That's against

:05:49.:05:55.

Malta here at Wembley. And those four games October, November, after

:05:56.:05:58.

that, there is a pause before March and the FA will have a chance to

:05:59.:06:06.

appoint a permanent manager, names being mentioned Eddie Howe, Steve

:06:07.:06:10.

Bruce, Alan Pardew, perhaps even Arsene Wenger if he could be prised

:06:11.:06:15.

away from Arsenal. We can speak to former FA

:06:16.:06:17.

Chairman David Bernstein. Hello. Hello Victoria. Do you have

:06:18.:06:26.

any sympathy for Sam Allardyce? Very little. I think for a man of this

:06:27.:06:30.

experience to be caught in the way he has been is naive and he has

:06:31.:06:35.

shown great disrespect. We use this word respect in football a great

:06:36.:06:38.

deal and he has shown very little respect to a great deal of people

:06:39.:06:43.

including his player, the FA and Roy Hodgson, who I know very well and

:06:44.:06:50.

the family. Why do you think he did what he did before he had taken a

:06:51.:06:53.

training session when he was on a two year contract at ?3 million a

:06:54.:06:58.

year? Well, you put it very well. Is it greed? Is it hubris? I don't

:06:59.:07:04.

know, I can't believe someone can be so stupid as to jeopardise a

:07:05.:07:08.

fantastic opportunity like this in this way. So it is beyond, you know,

:07:09.:07:13.

it is beyond comprehension that a man in his 60s, a mature man with

:07:14.:07:17.

lots of experience could get caught in this way. You must be really

:07:18.:07:23.

alarmed by the claims today in The Telegraph newspaper that there are

:07:24.:07:26.

eight former or current Premier League managers. They say, have also

:07:27.:07:33.

taken cash back-handers in order to smooth players' transfers? Well, of

:07:34.:07:38.

course, if it is proven and if they have got real evidence, of course,

:07:39.:07:42.

it is incredibly serious. It is a terrible thing for the English game.

:07:43.:07:46.

Let's see. I don't like speculating about these things until there is

:07:47.:07:49.

some serious hard evidence. They haven't mentioned any names as yet.

:07:50.:07:54.

So I'd rather bypass this until we know more, but potentially, it is

:07:55.:07:57.

dreadful. Yeah. And potentially the FA really need to look at their own

:07:58.:08:01.

structure of how they run the game, don't they? Because if it is true,

:08:02.:08:05.

this stuff is going on on their watch? Ah, Victoria, you are now

:08:06.:08:11.

coming to an issue that's key to me and I have been speaking to you and

:08:12.:08:14.

many others in the media about this for the last three years. You know,

:08:15.:08:17.

there was a Parliamentary Select Committee report on the FA which

:08:18.:08:27.

concluded that the FA's sfruk ture on governance was not fit for

:08:28.:08:30.

purpose. The FA has not taken on reform. It is not modern enough, but

:08:31.:08:37.

a fish rots from the head. We need to see change and unfortunately, and

:08:38.:08:42.

I found this and Greg Dyke found it, the FA will not change itself. It

:08:43.:08:47.

needs outside intervention and I think that the Sam Allardyce affair

:08:48.:08:51.

and many other things that I could spend a long while with you listing,

:08:52.:08:54.

huge numbers of different things including the relationship between

:08:55.:08:57.

the Premier League and the Football Association which I believe is not a

:08:58.:09:02.

balanced and healthy one, is at the centre of many issues in English

:09:03.:09:04.

football. Thank you very much for your time this morning. Thank you

:09:05.:09:07.

with Hugh Woozencroft. Who is going to take over from Sam

:14:14.:14:18.

Allardyce? Well, if you're going to the bookmakers today you will see

:14:19.:14:21.

the name of Gareth Southgate as the current favourite. He is the under

:14:22.:14:23.

21 boss. He has been installed in the interim and he will be installed

:14:24.:14:25.

for four games. He is going to have to impress. He

:14:26.:14:29.

has limited experience in club management. He spent three years in

:14:30.:14:33.

charge of Middlesbrough, but that ended in 2009. Given England's World

:14:34.:14:39.

Cup qualifying group, he is seen as easy and he will have to win the

:14:40.:14:43.

games and have to win them well to be handed the job on a permanent

:14:44.:14:48.

basis. Other names, Steve Bruce, the former Hull City and Sunderland

:14:49.:14:52.

manager is very much in the Sam Allardyce mould. He is seen as

:14:53.:14:55.

having done very well over the years with so-called smaller teams. He is

:14:56.:14:59.

vastly experienced and former Manchester United captain. There is

:15:00.:15:04.

Eddie Howe. He is just 38 years old, but he built himself a strong

:15:05.:15:07.

reputation over the last five years. He is currently the Bournemouth

:15:08.:15:10.

manager. They reached the Premier League, of course, they ensured

:15:11.:15:15.

survival last season and they did it in style as well, many seeing it as

:15:16.:15:19.

too soon for him to take on a role as big as the England manager's.

:15:20.:15:25.

There is Arsene Wenger. Well, he is in the last year of his contract

:15:26.:15:29.

with the club. He is an option too. He turned down the opportunity in

:15:30.:15:32.

the summer. He told the media that it wasn't a job he wanted to do. He

:15:33.:15:37.

wanted to honour his contract with Arsenal. There is another foreign

:15:38.:15:41.

option, Jurgen Klinsmann, the German. He is with the United

:15:42.:15:45.

States. He was mooted when Sam Allardyce got the job too. And there

:15:46.:15:50.

are more names involved. For the second time in awe months, the hunt

:15:51.:15:54.

is on for the new boss of England, who it will be remains to be seen.

:15:55.:16:02.

On the pitch last night, some really good results for teams in the

:16:03.:16:08.

English Champions League. Two positive results. Leicester were

:16:09.:16:13.

hosting their first match in the competition, and then new striker

:16:14.:16:16.

Islam Slimani continued what is a prolific record of scoring against

:16:17.:16:20.

the Portuguese giants Porto. He has faced them many times when he was

:16:21.:16:24.

with Sporting Lisbon. He headed in the only goal of the game from a

:16:25.:16:28.

Riyad Mahrez cross. That came much to the delight of their fans, as you

:16:29.:16:33.

can see. They are now top of group G, so a great start for Claudio

:16:34.:16:38.

Ranieri's side in the competition. Spurs responded to their defeat in

:16:39.:16:42.

game one with a 1-0 win over CSKA Moscow, Son Heung-min scoring. They

:16:43.:16:52.

now sit second in group E. So we will be back later, talking more

:16:53.:16:58.

about the sport, but we are hoping to hear from Sam Allardyce as well.

:16:59.:17:03.

We will see what he has got to say shortly. Yes, we are told he may say

:17:04.:17:09.

something about 9.30. We will bring that to you live.

:17:10.:17:11.

There are around 20 million of us in the UK that play

:17:12.:17:14.

For many, sharing footage of ourselves as we play and watch

:17:15.:17:18.

others game online is also part of the fun.

:17:19.:17:20.

But some women who get involved say they receive terrible abuse

:17:21.:17:23.

while gaming online simply because they are women.

:17:24.:17:25.

Now, two of the biggest websites in the world that host gaming

:17:26.:17:28.

content like this have told BBC Radio 1 Newsbeat they're doing

:17:29.:17:31.

all they can to get rid of misogynistic abuse

:17:32.:17:35.

Let's talk to Newsbeat's gaming reporter Steffan Powell -

:17:36.:17:43.

Some of the gamers you have spoken to have thousands of viewers at any

:17:44.:17:50.

one time, a massive audience for some pretty violent, sexist abuse,

:17:51.:17:55.

isn't it? They are very popular sites these days, because this has

:17:56.:17:59.

become a part of the gaming community. Gaming has moved on loads

:18:00.:18:02.

from the days when people used to play in their bedrooms on their own.

:18:03.:18:06.

It is all about community and sharing experiences with each other.

:18:07.:18:11.

Like you say, some have thousands of followers and others just have a few

:18:12.:18:15.

thousand. But it doesn't matter how many people follow these sites and

:18:16.:18:18.

share the content, it is still there to be seen. Sites like Twitter and

:18:19.:18:23.

YouTube give you a chance to have your own online TV station in your

:18:24.:18:28.

bedroom, and you can share that experience with anybody in the

:18:29.:18:32.

world. The majority of it is positive interaction. People can

:18:33.:18:35.

comment and say they like what you are doing. But some of it has turned

:18:36.:18:41.

nasty. We can hear now from a girl who tells about her experiences in

:18:42.:18:42.

the past. When I used to do Call

:18:43.:18:46.

of Duty commentaries when I first started YouTube,

:18:47.:18:52.

people would comment on my videos and they would be like,

:18:53.:18:55.

"You're only getting views because you're a girl -

:18:56.:18:58.

if you were a boy, And they would leave

:18:59.:19:00.

nasty comments as well, and it seems to always be

:19:01.:19:04.

about appearance - So it would be guys commenting,

:19:05.:19:06.

like, "Oh, you look horrible." But then I moved away from that

:19:07.:19:16.

content and started doing Minecraft, and now I have a child

:19:17.:19:19.

audience and nobody comments So you don't make as many videos

:19:20.:19:21.

with first person shooter games as you used to,

:19:22.:19:25.

you've changed the games you play? I feel like the games I played

:19:26.:19:28.

definitely influenced the sort of reaction I got,

:19:29.:19:30.

but I guess it is down You would get messages and comments

:19:31.:19:33.

on your videos. I had a guy that was obsessed

:19:34.:19:38.

with me for a very long time, and he was obsessed with the idea

:19:39.:19:45.

of me being a female and gaming, so he would comment

:19:46.:19:49.

on my videos every day, and he would tweet me every day

:19:50.:19:51.

and I would ban his accounts, and he would still make

:19:52.:19:54.

more, and more and more, and he would harass all my friends

:19:55.:19:57.

as well, and it started to get out of control,

:19:58.:20:00.

and that went on for four years. Was it quite personal

:20:01.:20:03.

stuff then, I guess? Yeah, he would even

:20:04.:20:06.

mention my family members - he even mentioned my friends' family

:20:07.:20:11.

members to them. He didn't threaten you or anything

:20:12.:20:16.

like that? Yeah, he was like, "I'm

:20:17.:20:21.

going to find out where you live, Yeah, he said horrible things

:20:22.:20:25.

like that all the time. I first of all told my mum,

:20:26.:20:29.

and she was like, "I don't know if anyone will do anything about it,

:20:30.:20:38.

with it being online." He could live in a different

:20:39.:20:41.

country, and then that's even more difficult to stop people,

:20:42.:20:44.

so I felt very lost. It was definitely worth carrying

:20:45.:20:50.

on because I have a loyal and loving fan base that just keeps growing,

:20:51.:20:53.

so those nice comments that people leave just totally outweigh

:20:54.:21:03.

the horrible ones. It's really annoying

:21:04.:21:05.

that it is still an issue, I'm not personally being affected

:21:06.:21:07.

by it, but it really makes me angry It is sort of par for the course if

:21:08.:21:18.

you are online, but you have taken these findings to YouTube and Twitch

:21:19.:21:22.

as well as the gaming industry. What do they say? Yeah, this is not new

:21:23.:21:26.

for people when it comes to online interaction. But we have spoken to

:21:27.:21:31.

Twitch and YouTube, and they are acknowledging that this is a

:21:32.:21:34.

problem. But they say they are doing the best they can. Twitch say they

:21:35.:21:38.

are working on new technology which will allow moderators to block users

:21:39.:21:44.

more effectively than at the moment. YouTube said there is no place for

:21:45.:21:47.

this on their site and there are clear guidelines to try and stop it

:21:48.:21:52.

from happening. The industry itself has moved on a lot when it comes to

:21:53.:21:55.

relations with women in the last few years. The trade body for gaming in

:21:56.:22:05.

the UK is saying to us, this is a society problem and there is a

:22:06.:22:08.

shared responsibility to tackle this through education and technology. It

:22:09.:22:11.

is not just something in gaming, it is a big issue elsewhere. Every

:22:12.:22:17.

other week, there are some issue about sexism in all sorts of

:22:18.:22:23.

professions. It is happening in film and music and sport. With gaming,

:22:24.:22:30.

they feel that they get it more because it is in that transition

:22:31.:22:34.

phase between being something that was more of a niche activity to

:22:35.:22:40.

something everybody does. Let's talk to Bex Bennett, a gamer who live

:22:41.:22:44.

streams herself playing on first person shooter games. We were also

:22:45.:22:51.

spoke to an Tony fox, a gamer who has written a dissertation on

:22:52.:22:57.

misogyny in gaming -- Antonia fox. Bex Bennett, tell us about the stuff

:22:58.:23:02.

you get when you are gaming. Oh, gosh. I have started getting

:23:03.:23:07.

desensitised to some of the abuse I get, especially on first person

:23:08.:23:12.

shooter games. They expect you to be a guy. If you are beating them and

:23:13.:23:17.

you are on the opposite team, you get so much horrible comments,

:23:18.:23:21.

threatening you, telling you that you are hacking, derogatory names.

:23:22.:23:31.

It is shocking, but like I say, I have now become desensitised to it.

:23:32.:23:34.

It is more shocking to me when I get a nice comment now. You don't expect

:23:35.:23:42.

it. As soon as I get a message ping up, I am thinking, what are they

:23:43.:23:46.

going to say now? But if it is something nice, I don't know what to

:23:47.:23:52.

say. Do you think the right tools are there to help you deal with that

:23:53.:23:59.

when it happens? One of the platforms I also use is Instagram,

:24:00.:24:04.

and on the comment section now, there is an option to block certain

:24:05.:24:08.

words, which will block out the whole comment. That stops people

:24:09.:24:11.

getting in contact with you that way, which I think is great. I think

:24:12.:24:16.

other platforms like Twitter and YouTube should follow in their

:24:17.:24:24.

footsteps. Do you think there is specifically something about gaming?

:24:25.:24:28.

We have seen this issue in other fields, but is there something about

:24:29.:24:32.

gaming that seems to draw out this sort of behaviour? Yes, I do. Like

:24:33.:24:40.

you say, it is in all industries. But with gaming, it is such a male

:24:41.:24:43.

dominated world, especially with first person shooters. I think they

:24:44.:24:54.

are not expecting a girl to be good at the game. Lets bring in Antonia.

:24:55.:25:03.

Tell us about your own experiences, bearing in mind that we are on

:25:04.:25:05.

morning television, so that restrict the language you can use. But give

:25:06.:25:09.

us an idea of what you have to put up with. A lot of streamers have to

:25:10.:25:16.

not only deal with it, but they expect that sort of behaviour.

:25:17.:25:21.

Harassment, often gendered slurs, and often comments about their

:25:22.:25:25.

appearance as well. One of my participants in my research has said

:25:26.:25:30.

it is like prepping for battle, because they are having to face

:25:31.:25:33.

these comments whilst they are streaming. Before they start

:25:34.:25:38.

streaming, they often apply make-up and start to get ready for the

:25:39.:25:42.

people in comments to start attacking their appearance. Wow, so

:25:43.:25:55.

they are battle ready. And not only getting ready to play their game.

:25:56.:25:59.

That in itself is a battle, but it is a battle against the audience as

:26:00.:26:08.

well. What do you think you can -- can be done? What can be done to

:26:09.:26:14.

stop it happening in the future? People who love gaming are almost

:26:15.:26:22.

fed up of having this conversation. Definitely, the route with

:26:23.:26:26.

moderators is important. A lot of streamers in my study said they

:26:27.:26:30.

heavily rely on moderators to have a safe and respectful chat. That

:26:31.:26:40.

should definitely be pursued. But I urge gamers and people that watch

:26:41.:26:45.

Twitch to really think about what they are commenting. Do you have any

:26:46.:26:50.

idea how old the people are who are sending you these horrible comments?

:26:51.:26:56.

It can range from anything from 12 years old to about 40. It is such a

:26:57.:27:04.

wide spectrum of age. That is depressing. Have you ever pretended

:27:05.:27:09.

to be a blow to see if there is any difference in reaction to you? I

:27:10.:27:15.

haven't pretended to be a bloke, per se, but I have had a gamer tag that

:27:16.:27:20.

is not gender specific. And obviously, I didn't get any hate

:27:21.:27:26.

comments at all. It is worth mentioning that this is not specific

:27:27.:27:31.

to a particular title or particular console or a way of gaming, this is

:27:32.:27:35.

an issue that seems to come up across the spectrum. So it needs

:27:36.:27:41.

that community approach to tackling it. And it is an issue that the

:27:42.:27:48.

websites are aware of and they are trying to do something about it.

:27:49.:27:53.

They acknowledge that the pace of change is frustrating even for them.

:27:54.:27:56.

We spoke to a spokesperson for Twitch, a former host of the sports

:27:57.:28:01.

competition, and she has had experience of this herself. She was

:28:02.:28:05.

telling Newsbeat that the pace of change is slow, but it is moving as

:28:06.:28:13.

quickly as possible. Bex, thanks for coming on. Antonia, thank you very

:28:14.:28:20.

much. Your experiences are welcome as well. Send me an e-mail.

:28:21.:28:25.

Still to come: Jeremy Corbyn stands up in front of Labour delegates

:28:26.:28:28.

It'll focus on two things - immigration

:28:29.:28:31.

We're going live to our correspondent shortly.

:28:32.:28:34.

Hurrah for our Olympic heroes - there'll be parades in Leeds

:28:35.:28:38.

and Edinburgh later to mark the success

:28:39.:28:40.

so we look at how it feels to be celebrated

:28:41.:28:49.

and even be an inspiration to a whole community.

:28:50.:28:51.

Here's Joanna in the BBC Newsroom with a summary of today's news.

:28:52.:28:54.

Sam Allardyce says he is 'deeply disappointed' to be leaving his role

:28:55.:28:57.

as England manager after just one game in charge.

:28:58.:28:59.

He stood down as a result of an undercover investigation

:29:00.:29:01.

carried out by reporters at the Daily Telegraph.

:29:02.:29:04.

They recorded Allardyce giving advice on how to avoid rules

:29:05.:29:08.

on player transfers and negotiating a deal to represent a Far East firm.

:29:09.:29:12.

In a statement, Mr Allardyce said he'd offered "a sincere

:29:13.:29:15.

and wholehearted apology" to the Football Association.

:29:16.:29:19.

The veteran Israeli politician Shimon Peres has

:29:20.:29:21.

In a career spanning almost seven decades,

:29:22.:29:25.

he served twice as Prime Minister, once as president and won

:29:26.:29:29.

the Nobel Peace Prize in 1994 for achieving an interim peace deal

:29:30.:29:32.

The Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn addresses the party's annual

:29:33.:29:38.

conference in Liverpool today, in a keenly awaited speech.

:29:39.:29:41.

He'll address the issue of immigration and is expected

:29:42.:29:45.

to say a Labour government would reinstate a fund

:29:46.:29:47.

to soften the impact on local communities.

:29:48.:29:49.

However, Mr Corbyn risks upsetting some delegates by not promising

:29:50.:29:53.

He'll also call for an end to Labour's "trench warfare"

:29:54.:29:57.

and urge the party to prepare itself for power.

:29:58.:30:05.

South Wales police are investigating the deaths of a man and woman

:30:06.:30:08.

in Cardiff after the discovery of two bodies in Queen Street,

:30:09.:30:11.

one of the main shopping areas in the city centre.

:30:12.:30:13.

Much of Queen Street has been cordoned off after the emergency

:30:14.:30:16.

World heavyweight champion Tyson Fury will fight again

:31:22.:31:26.

according to his trainer and uncle Peter, but probably not

:31:27.:31:28.

Fury withdrew from a rematch against Wladimir Klitschko

:31:29.:31:31.

because of reported mental health issues.

:31:32.:31:36.

He's been given ten days by the World Boxing Organisation

:31:37.:31:39.

to provide detailed reasons for his withdrawal.

It's four days since he won the contest to be the leader

:32:14.:32:16.

of the Labour Party - again - and today, Jeremy Corbyn

:32:17.:32:18.

will stand in front of his party to try and unite them again.

:32:19.:32:21.

He's giving his speech to the party conference in Liverpool.

:32:22.:32:24.

And what does his vision of Labour's future look like?

:32:25.:32:27.

Norman will be watching closely and leaders' speeches at party

:32:28.:32:30.

Vic, hi, today it is the big one. It is Jeremy Corbyn's chance to sort of

:32:31.:32:40.

punch threw and grab the electorate's attention to, set out

:32:41.:32:43.

what it is he wants to achieve, to define himself. Let's be honest,

:32:44.:32:47.

most people probably don't pay that much attention to Labour

:32:48.:32:50.

Conferences, it is like an annoying buzz in their ear! Today is

:32:51.:32:55.

different, leader's day is a moment when people do perhaps listen and

:32:56.:33:00.

see who it is wants to be their next Prime Minister and if you doubt

:33:01.:33:04.

that, have a look at this film I put together of recent leaders' speeches

:33:05.:33:08.

and the sort of key defining moments and how important they can be.

:33:09.:33:12.

Implausible promises don't win victories.

:33:13.:33:14.

I'll tell you what happens with impossible promises - you start

:33:15.:33:17.

They're then pickled into a rigid dogma code,

:33:18.:33:27.

and you go through the years sticking to that -

:33:28.:33:30.

outdated, misplaced, irrelevant to the real needs -

:33:31.:33:34.

and you end in the grotesque chaos of a Labour council,

:33:35.:33:46.

a Labour council, hiring taxies, to scuttle round a city,

:33:47.:33:55.

handing out redundancy notices to its own workers.

:33:56.:33:57.

And to the Prime Minister, I say this.

:33:58.:34:00.

The quiet man is here to stay and he is turning up the volume.

:34:01.:34:04.

It has always been absurd that the debate about crime in this

:34:05.:34:11.

country has some talking of its causes and others of the need

:34:12.:34:14.

Sweep away the dogma - tough on crime, tough

:34:15.:34:17.

Real change is about changing our culture and identity

:34:18.:34:22.

It is not some slick rebranding exercise

:34:23.:34:27.

or marketing exercise in spin - it's about making sure that

:34:28.:34:30.

at the next election - when all of you, when I,

:34:31.:34:33.

and when everyone in this room goes out and fight the greatest

:34:34.:34:39.

battle of our lives - street by street, house by house,

:34:40.:34:44.

flat by flat, that we have a message that is relevant to people today,

:34:45.:34:48.

that shows we of this modern country as it is and shows

:34:49.:34:51.

that we think our best days lie ahead as a country.

:34:52.:34:54.

So, I guess there will be a bit of anticipation, won't there, Norman

:34:55.:35:10.

ahead of the speech today from Mr Corbyn. What do party members want

:35:11.:35:16.

him to say? Well, that is the key question because I guess it all

:35:17.:35:22.

hinges on who Mr Corbyn sees as his audience today, is it the party

:35:23.:35:26.

faithful in the hall? Is it Labour supporters out in the country? Is it

:35:27.:35:29.

people who have never voted? Has he got to reach out to people who

:35:30.:35:34.

simply are not his people? To get a sense of what ordinary party members

:35:35.:35:39.

want him to do, I had a chat with some of them yesterday and here is

:35:40.:35:44.

what they told me. I want him to be unifying and to be positive about

:35:45.:35:47.

some of the people that may have left. As a Labour member, as a

:35:48.:35:53.

Labour activist, I need to be reassured that Jeremy is in it to

:35:54.:35:58.

win it. He should continue saying what he has been saying all along.

:35:59.:36:01.

He has been saying some really good things. Our problem is that the

:36:02.:36:06.

media twists and distorts and reports those things in a way that

:36:07.:36:09.

isn't positive REPORTER: Do you think he can reach

:36:10.:36:12.

out to people who don't think like him? Who maybe hostile to him? I

:36:13.:36:17.

mean I hope he can reach out to them and that's the whole, that's what we

:36:18.:36:20.

have to do. That's the goal of winning a general election and

:36:21.:36:24.

getting the majority. I don't know if he can. As selfish as it might

:36:25.:36:29.

sound, he needs to talk to us and he needs to unite us before we're able

:36:30.:36:33.

to reach out beyond this bubble and until we do that, people like my

:36:34.:36:36.

parents who have been Labour voters are never going to listen. It has

:36:37.:36:41.

been a divided summer aflt pretty poor summer for Labour let's be

:36:42.:36:46.

honest. Now we can turn around and if he can capture and make people

:36:47.:36:50.

believe in his vision of the economy, we're going to win that

:36:51.:36:52.

next election. And we're going to take that vision out for him. Yeah,

:36:53.:36:57.

we'll be there. We need to show we are a party in waiting. We are the

:36:58.:37:00.

better alternative. We can be in Government.

:37:01.:37:07.

I'm joined biowent Jones. A man who is well plugged into Team Corbyn

:37:08.:37:10.

thinking. Give us your sense of what Jeremy Corbyn has got to do today? I

:37:11.:37:14.

think firstly, he has to show actually the Labour Party is far

:37:15.:37:17.

more united than people give it credit for. It is not like the 1980s

:37:18.:37:23.

where there is big ideological confrontations going on on

:37:24.:37:25.

investment and the economy, and secondary mod rns and on a publicly

:37:26.:37:30.

funded properly resourced National Health Service. There is a large

:37:31.:37:34.

degree of consensus. He needs to make that clear without, because all

:37:35.:37:38.

we have had over the past three months is Labour Party naval gazing.

:37:39.:37:42.

So he has to show he can reach beyond the people who turn up to

:37:43.:37:45.

rallies, the people who have joined the Labour Party, the middle income

:37:46.:37:50.

voter, who works in an office, in Nuneaton for example to pick a place

:37:51.:37:55.

from thin air and that's talking about things like home ownership as

:37:56.:37:59.

well as building council housing and talking about older voters who

:38:00.:38:03.

Labour have haemorrhaged support since 1997 as well as a younger

:38:04.:38:06.

generation that fears they will be worse off than their parents. We

:38:07.:38:10.

have seen this row over immigration and his suggestion that you don't

:38:11.:38:13.

need to tackle numbers and that fuels a sense that Mr Corbyn is good

:38:14.:38:18.

at speaking to his own people. He is good at speaking to a metropolitan

:38:19.:38:22.

audience, but can he communicate beyond that? Immigration is an

:38:23.:38:25.

example of a division going throughout the natural Labour

:38:26.:38:30.

coalition. If you take big cities, Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool

:38:31.:38:33.

and so on, people are more well-disposed towards immigration

:38:34.:38:37.

particularly younger voters, it is places like Stockport and smaller

:38:38.:38:44.

towns where there is a lot of resentment about immigration. He has

:38:45.:38:48.

to say, "Look, we had a referendum which is more about immigration than

:38:49.:38:51.

anything else." He understands people's concerns. People don't mind

:38:52.:38:57.

disagreeing if they think there is an understanding and appreciation

:38:58.:38:59.

from where people are coming from and that's why I think making this

:39:00.:39:04.

idea of a migrant impact fund the Tories abolished, so the places with

:39:05.:39:08.

higher levels of immigration get extra resources to cope the with

:39:09.:39:11.

pressure on public services, to talk for example about English language

:39:12.:39:15.

services which are being cut because of a lack of investment in public

:39:16.:39:19.

services. So I think make that front and central we will deal with your

:39:20.:39:24.

concerns, we understand them. We will not set limits because the

:39:25.:39:26.

previous Government did that and failed and undermined people's faith

:39:27.:39:29.

in politics, but we will address the concerns and we understand. Let's

:39:30.:39:34.

talk performance because it is a performance today. We played clips

:39:35.:39:39.

by famous speeches by the likes of Neil kin OK, does Jeremy Corbyn have

:39:40.:39:42.

the ability to deliver that sort of performance? Everything I have seen

:39:43.:39:46.

of him, he doesn't really do those big moments, does he? Well, I think

:39:47.:39:50.

he's capable of them actually. I think if you take the acceptance

:39:51.:39:54.

speech this year compared to when he won last year, there is a marked

:39:55.:39:57.

improvement and obviously he was someone who never expected to become

:39:58.:40:02.

leader... Do you think we exaggerate the importance of that tour deforce

:40:03.:40:07.

and people aren't bothered Threw suggesting the media focus too much

:40:08.:40:17.

on style and substance? Come off it. Ron rald Regan had morning in

:40:18.:40:19.

America. If Jeremy Corbyn does a speech which says look at the great

:40:20.:40:22.

things this great country has achieved, the NHS, the welfare

:40:23.:40:27.

state, over coming tyranny in World War II, moments of great courage and

:40:28.:40:31.

determination and to draw on the great traditions that Britain is

:40:32.:40:35.

united behind a common purpose we can build a better society and make

:40:36.:40:39.

people feel good about themselves. Sometimes people like me on the left

:40:40.:40:45.

come across miserable and dower, the rights and freedoms that our

:40:46.:40:48.

ancestors fought for, let's build on that and look at the great society,

:40:49.:40:53.

one of the richest countries on earth that provides for all. If he

:40:54.:40:57.

makes people feel optimistic in a country which is sick of division

:40:58.:41:02.

after an acrimonious referendum campaign, remain or leave, we want

:41:03.:41:06.

the same things and we want to build a better society. Jeremy Corbyn

:41:07.:41:11.

riled when he was interviewed when he was asked if there was a

:41:12.:41:13.

comparison between him and Donald Trump? Maybe there is in the sense

:41:14.:41:16.

that Donald Trump is a very different politician. He is not

:41:17.:41:21.

business as usual. I wonder if he is kind of almost an anti-politics

:41:22.:41:24.

figure and maybe that's what people like about him. That he is not the

:41:25.:41:28.

normal politician. That's his strongest suit and maybe that's what

:41:29.:41:33.

he ought to play up? Donald Trump calls Mexicans rapists and

:41:34.:41:36.

criminals. There is a clear difference between the two. It is

:41:37.:41:39.

the case that there is an anti-politics mood sweeping the

:41:40.:41:42.

western world. You can't look at the rise of Jeremy Corbyn without

:41:43.:41:45.

looking at what happened in the United States, Bernie Sanders and

:41:46.:41:51.

Donald Trump and new insurgent antiestablishment parties. He is

:41:52.:41:55.

part of the that. One of the reasons he emerged when he did because there

:41:56.:42:00.

was a vacuum waiting to be filled. Actually I think a lot of the

:42:01.:42:05.

perceptive and reflective elements of the old order of the Labour Party

:42:06.:42:09.

understand that, but I think what he has to do is tap into that point

:42:10.:42:14.

which is to say Britain is sick of an old professionalised scripted

:42:15.:42:18.

politician and I'm not that kind of politician. You've got to turn

:42:19.:42:22.

things which are used to attack you into your strengths and one of the

:42:23.:42:24.

things that people are sick of in Britain is the idea of a certain

:42:25.:42:28.

type of politician, if he can say, I'm different sort of guy and you

:42:29.:42:33.

know in a country which people like Nigel Farage, I think that's

:42:34.:42:37.

something which can turn a weakness, I suppose the media would say into a

:42:38.:42:44.

strength. We know much of the speech will be about unity. He is going to

:42:45.:42:49.

call for an end to trench warfare. Are there going to be people in the

:42:50.:42:53.

Labour Party who will never come on board with Jeremy Corbyn because

:42:54.:42:56.

they disagree with his politics? They're not there to become part of

:42:57.:43:00.

Team Corbyn whatever he says? Well, you have some MPs who don't like his

:43:01.:43:04.

politics that's obviously the case, but most MPs actually are frankly,

:43:05.:43:08.

they don't have massive political disagreements with Jeremy Corbyn.

:43:09.:43:10.

They have concerns, yes, about whether he can win an election. They

:43:11.:43:14.

worry about keeping their own seats. They worry about competence and

:43:15.:43:18.

messaging, but actually, again on those issues, there isn't much

:43:19.:43:21.

different. I think what he needs to do is separate the irreconcileables

:43:22.:43:27.

and love bomb the rest and that means give-and-take, whilst MPs need

:43:28.:43:32.

to accept the democratic verdict of the members, no more talk of

:43:33.:43:38.

mandatory reselections. A lot of the middle ground of the Parliamentary

:43:39.:43:40.

Labour Party that would assuage their concerns and the main thing he

:43:41.:43:44.

has to do is show he has got an election winning strategy, a clear

:43:45.:43:47.

coherent strategy that reaches beyond the party faithful. Do you

:43:48.:43:50.

think Jeremy Corbyn enjoys being leader now? I heard him yesterday

:43:51.:43:55.

saying it was fun. But whenever I see him being interviewed by the

:43:56.:43:58.

media and I expect before the speech today, you get the sense he is

:43:59.:44:02.

really not that comfortable with it? Who would want to be Leader of the

:44:03.:44:07.

Opposition? It is one of the most miserable jobs I can imagine! I

:44:08.:44:12.

suppose probably if you were in his position it is great to be part of

:44:13.:44:15.

something that feels like an exciting mass movement to see lots

:44:16.:44:22.

of energised people, but if you're battered by people on your own side

:44:23.:44:26.

and by the media, that's exhausting. To be honest, with Jeremy Corbyn, he

:44:27.:44:30.

is somebody who stood out of a sense of duty. I don't think anyone could

:44:31.:44:36.

accuse him of being a careerist. He spent years on the periphery of

:44:37.:44:40.

politics in the Labour Party. Despite his often, things which went

:44:41.:44:43.

wrong, not least because he didn't want to be leader, that's why things

:44:44.:44:47.

have gone wrong, I suppose, but I think he just feels a sense of duty.

:44:48.:44:50.

He feels it is his responsibility to fight for the causes that the people

:44:51.:44:53.

elected him to fight for. Owen Jones, thank you very much. Vic,

:44:54.:44:57.

surely the one thing we can say about Jeremy Corbyn this is a man

:44:58.:45:01.

who has consistently defied expectations. No one thought he had

:45:02.:45:05.

a snowball's chance of becoming lead are and probably nobody thought he

:45:06.:45:09.

would still be leader. He is. He has a bigger mandate and he is still

:45:10.:45:12.

there and today is a big day for him.

:45:13.:45:15.

Full coverage on BBC News. Sam Allardyce has been speaking

:45:16.:45:23.

about the revelations that led to him losing his job as England

:45:24.:45:29.

manager. This is what he said. "It Was an error of judgment on my

:45:30.:45:34.

behalf and I have paid the consequences. Entrapment has won. I

:45:35.:45:39.

think on reflection, it was a silly thing to do. Just to let everyone

:45:40.:45:44.

know, I sort of help doubt somebody I have known for 30 years.

:45:45.:45:50.

Unfortunately, it was an error of judgment on my behalf. I have paid

:45:51.:45:55.

the consequences. Entrapment has won on this occasion, and I have to

:45:56.:45:59.

accept that. The agreement was done very amicably with the FA and I

:46:00.:46:03.

apologise to those and all concerned in the unfortunate position I have

:46:04.:46:07.

put myself in. I am off abroad to chill out and reflect. I would like

:46:08.:46:12.

to wish all the England lads, Gareth and all the staff the very best". I

:46:13.:46:24.

think that on reflection, it was a silly thing to do. But just to let

:46:25.:46:30.

everybody know, I sort of help doubt somebody I had known for 30 years.

:46:31.:46:35.

Unfortunately, it was an error of judgment on my part and I paid the

:46:36.:46:39.

consequences. Entrapment has won on this occasion, and I have to accept

:46:40.:46:47.

that. The agreement was done very amicably with the FA. I apologise to

:46:48.:46:56.

those and all concerned in this unfortunate situation I have put

:46:57.:47:02.

myself in. I have a confidentiality agreement. I can't answer any more

:47:03.:47:09.

questions right now. What are you going to do now? I am off abroad,

:47:10.:47:14.

just to chill out and reflect. I would like to wish all the England

:47:15.:47:18.

lads, Gareth and the staff the best. Was that your last job in football?

:47:19.:47:26.

Who knows? Thanks. Sam Allardyce, looking pretty devastated, I have to

:47:27.:47:30.

say. It wasn't quite loud enough to hear everything he has been saying.

:47:31.:47:36.

But as I said before we heard him speak, he said "Entrapment has won

:47:37.:47:41.

on this occasion and I have to accept that. The agreement was done

:47:42.:47:46.

very amicably with the FA and I apologise to those and all concerned

:47:47.:47:50.

in the unfortunate position I have put myself in". He's off to chill

:47:51.:47:54.

out and reflect, and he said best of luck to Gareth Southgate, all the

:47:55.:47:59.

staff and/or the England lads. Final question put to him was, last job in

:48:00.:48:04.

football? He said, who knows? Wait and see. But he looked tired and

:48:05.:48:08.

devastated. Some comments from you. Lawrence says a dice is a disgrace

:48:09.:48:17.

-- Sam Allardyce is a disgrace. Somebody suggested that Glenn Hoddle

:48:18.:48:20.

should be the next England manager. But he has been out of football for

:48:21.:48:24.

a long time, hasn't he? Your views are welcome. You can tweet, send me

:48:25.:48:33.

an e-mail, WhatsApp, text etc. I have got loads of comments from you

:48:34.:48:36.

about gaming. If you are saying misogyny has to be tackled. But

:48:37.:48:41.

quite a few are saying men get just as many horrific comments. I will

:48:42.:48:45.

bring those to you before ten o'clock.

:48:46.:48:47.

Parades and celebrations will be held in Leeds and Edinburgh later

:48:48.:48:50.

to mark the success of local athletes at the 2016 Olympic Games.

:48:51.:48:53.

So how does it feel to be celebrated, and what do our

:48:54.:48:56.

athletes hope to inspire in their local communities?

:48:57.:48:59.

Let's talk now to Kadeena Cox, who got three medals including

:49:00.:49:04.

a gold in two different disciplines at the Paralympics,

:49:05.:49:12.

And Jack Laugher, who got a silver and a gold medal for diving,

:49:13.:49:19.

Paul Bennett, who rowed his way to gold as part of the men's eight,

:49:20.:49:22.

and Heather Stanning, who won gold with partner

:49:23.:49:24.

Jack, that silver and that goal that I can see around your neck, what is

:49:25.:49:36.

it like when you put that on in the morning? A lot of jingling. They

:49:37.:49:43.

clang together a lot. But it feels fantastic. I had such a successful

:49:44.:49:47.

Games and I am so proud of what I have achieved. It is fantastic to

:49:48.:49:53.

wear these around my neck. Paul, have you come down yet or not? It is

:49:54.:49:58.

difficult to come down when you keep meeting these incredible people who

:49:59.:50:02.

want to tell you how amazing it was and how proud they are of watching

:50:03.:50:07.

you win. So you keep getting bored back up to the same level because

:50:08.:50:13.

everybody is really enthusiastic. I come down and then I get pulled back

:50:14.:50:19.

up to Rio after the final. Heather, are you looking forward to the

:50:20.:50:23.

parade today? Really looking forward to it. It is fairly mild up here in

:50:24.:50:29.

Edinburgh, which is good. Were you at Helen's wedding? I was. It was an

:50:30.:50:36.

amazing weekend. I saw a few pictures in a magazine, and it

:50:37.:50:41.

looked incredibly romantic. It was. It was amazing. They are such a

:50:42.:50:48.

happy couple. It was so perfect for them. The weather was fantastic,

:50:49.:50:50.

which was lucky because it was outside. It was a beautiful day for

:50:51.:50:55.

them and for the guests. Kadeena, I hope you can hear us. Three medals

:50:56.:51:00.

in two different disciplines, the first person to do this since 1984.

:51:01.:51:03.

How did you do it? I just went out there with my coaches and

:51:04.:51:23.

performed to the best of my ability. And why is the parade significant

:51:24.:51:28.

for you to take part? It is so amazing to have a parade in my home

:51:29.:51:32.

city and to go out and see all the people. It is going to be a great

:51:33.:51:37.

feeling, and just to give a bit back and showcase our medals. I remember

:51:38.:51:42.

after 2012, my own kids were really inspired to take up gymnastics and

:51:43.:51:48.

all sorts of other things. Jack, are you aware of your responsibility in

:51:49.:51:52.

inspiring young kids to get involved? Of course. We have had

:51:53.:51:58.

such a surge of people participating in diving now. Our learn to dive

:51:59.:52:03.

sessions are completely packed out across the country. That is what we

:52:04.:52:07.

need in diving. We need people joining from an early age to

:52:08.:52:12.

hopefully breed talent in the future. Obviously, I am now a role

:52:13.:52:15.

model, and that is great. I hope to inspire a lot of people. Paul, do

:52:16.:52:25.

you accept the responsibility of being a role model? Does that sit

:52:26.:52:30.

comfortably with you? It is a bit difficult to get into. You are just

:52:31.:52:34.

like anyone else, and then you win some medals and everyone says you

:52:35.:52:42.

are expected to be a role model. It takes time to get into it, but it is

:52:43.:52:46.

easy to fulfil that role when you meet young people who are keen to

:52:47.:52:50.

hear what being an athlete is like. You find it in yourself to say

:52:51.:52:53.

things that are inspirational and get kids to keep going. You are

:52:54.:53:02.

tried to expose people to sports that they might be engaged by. That

:53:03.:53:07.

is something I like to do. You learn how to do it along the way and you

:53:08.:53:12.

meet some incredible kits. Those two things help each other along -- some

:53:13.:53:17.

incredible kids. Before you know it, you are fulfilling the role.

:53:18.:53:23.

Heather, that is interesting. You have to learn to take on this

:53:24.:53:28.

responsibility. Do you agree? Absolutely. It is something I had to

:53:29.:53:34.

learn quickly after London. Both Helen and myself were prepared to

:53:35.:53:37.

win our rowing race. What we were not prepared for was all the bits

:53:38.:53:40.

they came afterwards. Of course, it is amazing to be a part of it, but

:53:41.:53:45.

it does take some getting used to. For so long, you have been focused

:53:46.:53:48.

on yourself as an individual and you have forgotten what an impact you

:53:49.:53:52.

have on people around you. But it is really nice to go into schools and

:53:53.:53:56.

speak to kids. I spent yesterday morning in schools around my

:53:57.:54:01.

parents' in Lossiemouth. It was fantastic to talk to the kids. The

:54:02.:54:06.

kids were all so energised by watching the Olympics and

:54:07.:54:09.

Paralympics. They all want to give something ago. And they come up with

:54:10.:54:14.

the most interesting questions. Like? Well, I was there with both my

:54:15.:54:19.

medals and one girl goes, I won my medals this summer for doing this

:54:20.:54:26.

event in my summer club. I was like, that is amazing! She was so proud of

:54:27.:54:31.

her medal. She thought mine were good, but hers were better. Kadeena,

:54:32.:54:35.

some of our audience know that you had a stroke two years ago. You were

:54:36.:54:40.

then diagnosed with MS. I wonder what you hope people will take away

:54:41.:54:46.

from your performances in Rio? Yeah, I went out there with the intention

:54:47.:54:50.

of showing that you can still push the boundaries even with setbacks.

:54:51.:54:54.

So I was prepared to be a role model and show people that they can do

:54:55.:54:59.

amazing things even with things like what I have got, the MS and the

:55:00.:55:06.

strokes. I wanted to make people feel empowered. And who are the

:55:07.:55:10.

people around you who are part of your team, whether it is

:55:11.:55:13.

professionals or relatives? We spoke to your sister during the

:55:14.:55:17.

Paralympics, for example. They are important to you when you are

:55:18.:55:21.

focusing on a goal like the Paralympics. Yeah, I am from a big

:55:22.:55:27.

family. I am one of seven children. My mum, dad, brothers and sisters

:55:28.:55:32.

have all been amazing support. Then I have two head coaches and my

:55:33.:55:36.

training group are around me. They have all been amazing support. Well,

:55:37.:55:43.

I hope all of you enjoy the parade is today. Many thanks to all of you.

:55:44.:55:57.

I have a mixture of comments on Sam Allardyce from you, and also on

:55:58.:56:03.

gaming. An e-mail from Paul says, the uniform reaction from the rest

:56:04.:56:05.

of the media to the Daily Telegraph's Allardyce Sting and this

:56:06.:56:11.

-- virtually nil criticism from the usual anti-press suspects. It is a

:56:12.:56:17.

legitimate triumph from the Telegraph and undercover journalism,

:56:18.:56:19.

I would argue. That is in response to the fact that Sam Allardyce said

:56:20.:56:25.

on this occasion, entrapment has won. John says, I am not shocked by

:56:26.:56:29.

this. Corruption is rife from Fifa downwards. An e-mail from Cath -

:56:30.:56:36.

when are we going to view these newspaper setups as unacceptable

:56:37.:56:40.

gutter journalism? Looking at the footage, Allardyce appeared to be

:56:41.:56:43.

being plied with alcohol to encourage him to open up and the

:56:44.:56:47.

conversation was deliberately steered in the desired direction. I

:56:48.:56:51.

feel sorry for Big Sam, in some ways the victim of his own actions but in

:56:52.:56:56.

many ways the victim of an underregulated press. On gaming,

:56:57.:56:59.

Luke says misogyny in gaming should be tackled by more than just the

:57:00.:57:03.

content hosting websites. Sexism should be tackled early in schools.

:57:04.:57:07.

It is hard to miss the rise in sexism in all areas of society and

:57:08.:57:12.

it should be urgently tackled. Angela says, I challenge all bad

:57:13.:57:16.

behaviour when I am on Xbox one. Trevor says young men abusing women

:57:17.:57:19.

are keyboard warriors who would not dare to talk to women in real life

:57:20.:57:25.

and are just inadequate. Thank you for those.

:57:26.:57:27.

Coming up, we will find out how an American couple's wedding

:57:28.:57:30.

photo-shoot in Central Park was disrupted - by Tom Hanks.

:57:31.:57:41.

Let's get the latest weather update with Matt Taylor.

:57:42.:57:48.

Not a bad start to the day for many. Warmest day of the week for many,

:57:49.:57:55.

but we will follow that with windy weather tonight, particularly across

:57:56.:58:02.

Scotland. At the moment, most are dry. In Northern Ireland, we have

:58:03.:58:07.

seen the cloud increase. It is all linked into a weather system which

:58:08.:58:10.

has been rushing up from the mid-Atlantic. Warm winds on the

:58:11.:58:12.

southern flank of it, but strengthening winds around it. Those

:58:13.:58:21.

strong winds push into night. The skies will brighten in Northern

:58:22.:58:25.

Ireland this afternoon, but wet for a time in Scotland. Brightest,

:58:26.:58:30.

sunniest and warmest in the south and east. We finish in the afternoon

:58:31.:58:34.

with the wettest weather across the far north of Scotland. The rain here

:58:35.:58:40.

will persist all day long. The wind will start to strengthen across the

:58:41.:58:44.

Hebrides. The Alpha Scotland could brighten up from Lanarkshire towards

:58:45.:58:48.

the borders -- the south of Scotland. It may stay grey and

:58:49.:58:53.

drizzly through parts of north-west England and West and Wales, but

:58:54.:58:57.

around Cheshire and the north-east of Wales, here is where the cloud

:58:58.:59:01.

will break. Grey, misty and damp across the hills around Devon and

:59:02.:59:05.

Cornwall. Further east, we have sunny spells for the afternoon.

:59:06.:59:12.

Breezy through tonight and increasingly windy by the end of the

:59:13.:59:16.

night. Severe gales in Scotland, with frequent showers. A weather

:59:17.:59:20.

front which stars the evening in Scotland and Northern Ireland will

:59:21.:59:25.

push south through Wales and England. To the south and east of

:59:26.:59:30.

that, we have a warm start. To the north and west, a particularly wild

:59:31.:59:34.

start. In Scotland, the morning rush hour could be difficult. We could

:59:35.:59:39.

see guests of 60 mph, which could cause disruptions to ferry services

:59:40.:59:45.

and bridges. The winds in the north will ease a bit through the day, but

:59:46.:59:49.

they will strengthen across Northern Ireland, southern Scotland and

:59:50.:59:55.

northern England. Tomorrow will start on the wet side, but brighten

:59:56.:59:58.

up later. Much of England and Wales will see sunshine in the afternoon,

:59:59.:00:07.

but it will feel fresher than today. Sunshine and showers again for

:00:08.:00:13.

Friday. Some in the east will stay dry, but feeling cooler. And it is a

:00:14.:00:17.

cooler trend for the weekend. Showers most frequent on Saturday.

:00:18.:00:19.

Sunday is not looking bad. I'm Victoria Derbyshire,

:00:20.:00:24.

welcome to the programme if you've just joined us,

:00:25.:00:28.

coming up before 11am: A "silly thing to do and I'm

:00:29.:00:31.

paying the consequences". We start with the breaking news

:00:32.:00:33.

of comments from Sam Allardyce, now ex-England football manager

:00:34.:00:36.

after he lost his job We'll bring you his full statement

:00:37.:00:38.

and the views of a former England 20 million of us play video games

:00:39.:00:45.

in the UK, if you're a woman though Women gamers tell us

One of Israel's defining political figures has died.

:01:13.:01:15.

Shimon Peres was Israel's President, two time Prime Minister

:01:16.:01:17.

Here's Joanna in the BBC Newsroom with a summary of today's news.

:01:18.:01:34.

Sam Allardyce has broken his silence about the error of judgement that

:01:35.:01:42.

cost his job as England manager. Sam Allardyce apologised for offering

:01:43.:01:46.

advice on how to avoid rules on player transfers and negotiating a

:01:47.:01:50.

deal to represent a Far East firm that was secretly recorded, but he

:01:51.:01:55.

accused the newspaper undercover investigation as entrapment. On

:01:56.:01:59.

reflection, it was a silly thing to do, but just to let everybody know I

:02:00.:02:05.

helped out what was somebody I had known for 30 years and unfortunately

:02:06.:02:09.

it was an error in judgement on my behalf.

:02:10.:02:14.

President Obama and Prince Charles will be among the dignitaries

according to the Israeli foreign ministry.

:02:20.:02:21.

In a career spanning almost seven decades,

:02:22.:02:22.

Shimon Peres served twice as Prime Minister, once as president

:02:23.:02:25.

and won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1994 for achieving an interim

He died at the age of 93 following a stroke.

The Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn addresses the party's annual

:02:33.:02:34.

conference in Liverpool today, in a keenly awaited speech.

He'll address the issue of immigration and is expected

:02:37.:02:38.

to say a Labour government would reinstate a fund

:02:39.:02:41.

to soften the impact on local communities.

:02:42.:02:42.

However, Mr Corbyn risks upsetting some delegates by not promising

:02:43.:02:46.

He'll also call for an end to Labour's "trench warfare"

:02:47.:02:51.

and urge the party to prepare itself for power.

:02:52.:02:57.

South Wales Police are investigating the deaths of a man and woman

Well, Sam Allardyce has broken his silence over his

:04:14.:04:25.

He gave a few words to reporters outside his home today saying.

:04:26.:04:29.

"I think on reflection it was a silly thing to do,

:04:30.:04:32.

I'm very happy. It is the first match after 132 years in Leicester,

:07:15.:07:21.

Cheers, thank you very much, Hugh. Welcome to the programme.

:07:22.:07:28.

Sam Allardyce has accused The Daily Telegraph of entrapment. Let's

:07:29.:07:29.

listen to what he had to say. I think that on reflection it was a

:07:30.:07:43.

silly thing to do, but just to let everybody know that I sort of helped

:07:44.:07:47.

out what was somebody I had known for 30 years and unfortunately it

:07:48.:07:51.

was an error in judgement on my behalf and I paid the consequences.

:07:52.:07:58.

Entrapment has won on this occasion and I have to accept that. The

:07:59.:08:04.

agreement has done very amicably with the FA. I apologise to those

:08:05.:08:16.

and all concerned that it was an unfortunate position I put myself. I

:08:17.:08:21.

have a confidentiality agreement. I can't answer anymore questions just

:08:22.:08:25.

now. I'm going to go away and reflect.

:08:26.:08:27.

REPORTER: Can you tell what yous you're going to do now? I'm off

:08:28.:08:32.

abroad to chill out and reflect. I want to wish all the England lads,

:08:33.:08:37.

Gareth and the lads all the very best.

:08:38.:08:39.

REPORTER: Was that your last job in football? Who knows.

:08:40.:08:44.

"I think on reflection it was a silly thing to do,

Id like to wish all the England lads, Gareth and all the staff

:09:06.:09:09.

Joining me now from Wembley is our correspondent, Amy Cole.

:09:10.:09:18.

Draw together the reaction to the fact that Sam Allardyce has left and

:09:19.:09:25.

this job that he coveted for so many years in humiliating circumstances?

:09:26.:09:30.

Well, absolutely. I mean the reaction has been one of surprise

:09:31.:09:34.

and also, I think, disgust really that this has happened. Two

:09:35.:09:39.

high-profile men who were involved with the FA, they were both former

:09:40.:09:44.

chairmen, Greg Dyke and David Bernstein have both commented and

:09:45.:09:47.

they have been really scathing in their view of Sam Allardyce's

:09:48.:09:52.

behaviour. Let me just read you what they have said. Greg Dyke said, "I

:09:53.:09:56.

think the FA did exactly the right thing and they did it quickly which

:09:57.:10:00.

always helps. You don't want this hanging around. He said of Sam

:10:01.:10:04.

Allardyce, his judgement is clearly flawed. I mean, what was he doing?

:10:05.:10:10.

Hawking himself around for another ?400,000 job when he has just taken

:10:11.:10:14.

the job for over ?3 million plus bonuses on top of that? I mean he

:10:15.:10:19.

was just being greedy, wasn't he? I think a lack of judgement is a

:10:20.:10:25.

polite way of putting it. David Bernstein said, "The hubris of it

:10:26.:10:29.

all is extraordinary. This is a man earning ?3 million a year, I wonder

:10:30.:10:33.

whether there is a pay off or not. I hope not? Because I don't think 50

:10:34.:10:40.

or 60 days work merits a pay off. There have been reports this

:10:41.:10:43.

morning, some speculation that Sam Allardyce may well be paid ?1

:10:44.:10:47.

million as a pay off, but certainly these two men don't believe that

:10:48.:10:51.

that should happen. In terms of appointing a permanent

:10:52.:10:56.

manager for England, it will take a while, I suppose? Well, yes, it is,

:10:57.:11:03.

indeed, Victoria. England's next game here at Wembley will be against

:11:04.:11:09.

Malta in a week's time in. Short-term the England under 21 boss

:11:10.:11:13.

Gareth Southgate will take over as the England manager for the next

:11:14.:11:16.

four games. They are all in October and November. However, helpfully,

:11:17.:11:21.

for the FA, the next game after that won't be until March. So they'll

:11:22.:11:24.

have a bit of time to think about who to replace as a permanent

:11:25.:11:28.

manager. Now at the time that they employed Sam Allardyce, the FA was

:11:29.:11:31.

pleased to say they found an English manager and they may well be looking

:11:32.:11:37.

to see who else could fit the frame. Other English possible contenders,

:11:38.:11:40.

you know, we are hearing this morning there maybe Eddie Howe of

:11:41.:11:45.

Bournemouth, Alan Pardew at Crystal Palace and former Hull City manager,

:11:46.:11:49.

Steve Bruce. They are among the possible candidates, but the FA may

:11:50.:11:54.

look at a foreign manager, but they're going to face a big more

:11:55.:12:00.

problems before that because it seems that The Daily Telegraph which

:12:01.:12:06.

launched this sting and has been printing details of the corruption

:12:07.:12:11.

has today said that there are about eight current and former Premier

:12:12.:12:15.

League managers plus two Championship managers who have taken

:12:16.:12:21.

cash incentives or so-called bungs to arrange transfers. None of those

:12:22.:12:27.

people are named in the paper, but later this week, the paper says it

:12:28.:12:31.

will name an assistant manager at a leading club who has been filmed

:12:32.:12:36.

taking ?5,000 as a cash payment. That's a real headache for the FA.

:12:37.:12:42.

The paper says it had been carrying out this undercover inquiry for the

:12:43.:12:46.

past ten months and passed on the transcripts to the FA and to the

:12:47.:12:49.

police. There may well be criminal investigations to come.

:12:50.:12:59.

Thank you very much, Amy. Ralph, why was Sam Allardyce so

:13:00.:13:03.

naive? Another viewer says, "What a greedy man, wasn't ?3 million a year

:13:04.:13:08.

enough?" Gareth Southgate turned it down last time, why would he want it

:13:09.:13:13.

now? Sam Allardyce won't be the last manager of England whose career

:13:14.:13:16.

ended in humiliation. Glenn Hoddle lost his job in early

:13:17.:13:21.

1999 after he suggested people with disabilities might be paying

:13:22.:13:24.

players, and was forced to hold a meeting to apologise

:13:57.:13:59.

Fabio Capello was criticised after a controversial player ratings

:14:00.:14:01.

system called the Capello Index Added to that, Capello's

:14:02.:14:04.

relationship with the FA broke down in 2012 when he didn't agree

:14:05.:14:11.

with their decision to strip John Terry of the England captaincy

:14:12.:14:16.

over allegations of racial abuse. Then there was the Wally

of the world's smallest nations, One of England's most embarrassing

:14:34.:14:40.

exit from an international COMMENTATOR: And England's

:14:41.:14:43.

embarrassment is Iceland's ecstasy! One particularly bad game has caused

:14:44.:14:50.

a lot of damage, to me personally, to the team, and even

:14:51.:14:54.

to the team going forward, because now they've got

:14:55.:14:56.

a major bridge to repair. And finally there is Sam Allardyce,

:14:57.:14:58.

who lasted just 67 days in the job. He's a former Liverpool

:14:59.:15:13.

and England defender who was capped three

:15:14.:15:16.

times by England. And Ian Marshal, who played

:15:17.:15:18.

under Sam Allardyce at Bolton Wanderers

:15:19.:15:23.

between 2001-2002. He will be devastated. This was the

:15:24.:15:39.

job he wanted. A real bad bit of judgment has cost him. I am bitterly

:15:40.:15:44.

disappointed, because I thought he would do a good job and I was hoping

:15:45.:15:48.

he would have a good go at it and bring success to the England team.

:15:49.:15:53.

What do you think he was thinking of? The only thing I can think of is

:15:54.:16:00.

greed. That word has been thrown around for the last few days. He is

:16:01.:16:04.

a wealthy man, it is not a question of him needing the money. But the

:16:05.:16:09.

green eyed monster seems to have got hold of him. John Scales, how do you

:16:10.:16:19.

see this? Like everybody says, everyone is shocked by the greed,

:16:20.:16:25.

the naivety, every aspect of this story. I think the FA were in a

:16:26.:16:35.

simple position to make the decision that his position was untenable. And

:16:36.:16:39.

we find ourselves with Gareth Southgate in charge. It is

:16:40.:16:46.

incredibly disappointing. You talked about the previous episodes with

:16:47.:16:50.

England managers, the scrutiny they are under and the expectations they

:16:51.:16:55.

are under, which is right with the salaries they earn and the position

:16:56.:17:00.

they hold. Is it endemic in football? To a degree, yes. That is

:17:01.:17:05.

in the spotlight again, when we have just kicked off another fantastic

:17:06.:17:09.

season of football. So many people in the country wanted to look at the

:17:10.:17:12.

positive side of things. Alan Shearer says football in England is

:17:13.:17:18.

a laughing stock around the world. Do you agree? I don't agree with

:17:19.:17:23.

that. It is bad, but it was only a few years ago that the Italian

:17:24.:17:32.

league was riddled with Mac -- match fixing and everything. It is not an

:17:33.:17:38.

illegal thing he has done. It is not right and he had to go, but I would

:17:39.:17:42.

not say it is a laughing stock. Worse things have gone on in

:17:43.:17:50.

football. John scales, Sam Allardyce describes it as entrapment. He said

:17:51.:17:56.

entrapment has won on this occasion. Do you agree? Well, that is the way

:17:57.:18:01.

the Daily Telegraph got their story. They have set up a situation where

:18:02.:18:05.

they put Sam Allardyce in a position where his naivety has got the better

:18:06.:18:10.

of him and his greed got the better of him and he has been loose with

:18:11.:18:14.

his talk. That has happened in the past and will happen again in the

:18:15.:18:19.

future. That is Sam's responsibility to understand the privileged

:18:20.:18:23.

position he is in comes with situations like that. It is

:18:24.:18:31.

incredible that so short into his reign as England manager, he has

:18:32.:18:36.

made comments that have brought the FA into disrepute and put himself in

:18:37.:18:40.

a position where he has lost the job he's so coveted and was so pleased

:18:41.:18:47.

to get. He was a positive force for English football, but as everybody

:18:48.:18:54.

has said, he had to go. Ian, have you heard of managers taking cash

:18:55.:18:59.

backhanders in order to smooth the transfer of players from one club to

:19:00.:19:06.

another? Not personally, but I do believe it has gone on. What are you

:19:07.:19:11.

basing that belief on if you have never heard about it? When I say

:19:12.:19:15.

never heard about it, I have never experienced it myself. But I see

:19:16.:19:26.

situations where things happen, and you question how it has happened. I

:19:27.:19:34.

am asking because the Telegraph says there are eight current or former

:19:35.:19:38.

managers... It is great to say there are eight people, but they should

:19:39.:19:45.

name them. Then it can be out in the open. There are only 20 managers in

:19:46.:19:51.

the Premier League, so that is nearly half of them. Well, it is

:19:52.:19:56.

current and former Premier League managers. It is a good point about

:19:57.:20:01.

why they haven't named them. Some have denied any wrongdoing. They are

:20:02.:20:04.

going to name an assistant manager who took ?5,000 to smooth transfer.

:20:05.:20:15.

That is interesting, but they have obviously got no solid proof on the

:20:16.:20:19.

managers, or they would name them if they have a cast-iron case. I would

:20:20.:20:31.

like them to defend themselves or to be proven guilty. John, have you

:20:32.:20:37.

heard of managers taking bungs? I think we have all heard it. It is

:20:38.:20:46.

based on rumour and chitter chatter, and that comes from good sources,

:20:47.:20:53.

the football network. It is not something I have experienced

:20:54.:20:58.

first-hand, but when you have built it up over a career, I started

:20:59.:21:03.

football 30 years ago, you hear so much about it that you believe it

:21:04.:21:10.

has to be true. And you know there is so much money in the game, so

:21:11.:21:16.

many agents involved, so much ability to take part of the money

:21:17.:21:25.

that is involved in football out of the game in a way that is not clear,

:21:26.:21:29.

there are no checks and balances to keep the game in order, and people

:21:30.:21:33.

manipulate the system, like they do in every walk of life. It is the

:21:34.:21:40.

scale of the dishonesty that surprises many, but it is difficult

:21:41.:21:45.

to prove. With the eight managers that have been mentioned, in

:21:46.:21:51.

investigative journalism, you have to be absolutely watertight. I have

:21:52.:21:54.

worked in television programmes where you can go so far, but the

:21:55.:21:58.

lawyers will then step in and say you cannot name them because we

:21:59.:22:09.

haven't got enough proof. I think it is just the nature of the game and

:22:10.:22:18.

the stories that everyone has heard, you pretty much understand that it

:22:19.:22:22.

goes on at every level in the game. Lord Stevens did and inquiry not

:22:23.:22:27.

long ago, looking at corruption in the English game and issue of bungs,

:22:28.:22:35.

and he didn't come up with much. We have had a statement from the sports

:22:36.:22:40.

minister, Tracy Crouch. She says "The integrity of sport is

:22:41.:22:43.

paramount. We have been clear that we expect the highest standards of

:22:44.:22:47.

governance and transparency from sports governing bodies in the UK

:22:48.:22:51.

and around the world. In this context, the recent allegations

:22:52.:22:54.

regarding English football are very concerning and we will be concerning

:22:55.:22:58.

discussing the matter with the football authorities. All the

:22:59.:23:01.

evidence must be investigated and we stand ready to assist in any way".

:23:02.:23:07.

As it got anything to do with the government, John? Well, the

:23:08.:23:11.

government are in a difficult position with the way the FA have

:23:12.:23:22.

their organisation and the government has always said it would

:23:23.:23:26.

intervene at some stage and has never happened. Possibly, at this

:23:27.:23:30.

point, the government will feel it has to intervene properly and get

:23:31.:23:34.

better order into the game. There will certainly be speaking to Martin

:23:35.:23:42.

Glenn and Greg Clark of the FA and discussing it, but that has to

:23:43.:23:45.

involve all stakeholders, not just the FA. The FA are often so derided

:23:46.:23:53.

and castigated for their position within the game, but they are in a

:23:54.:23:57.

difficult position. They are the custodians of the game, but there

:23:58.:24:01.

are so many other stakeholders, the Premier League, the PFA, kick racism

:24:02.:24:05.

out of, the clubs, the players. Every stakeholder has to have an

:24:06.:24:11.

interest in finding a solution. If that takes the government to step in

:24:12.:24:14.

and do what they can, all the better. We have seen it with the IOC

:24:15.:24:21.

and Fifa and the IAAF. So many organisations have issues of

:24:22.:24:26.

corruption. And unfortunately, we see it across the world in every

:24:27.:24:30.

situation, whether it is a defence contractor getting backhanders

:24:31.:24:35.

across the world or whether it is in football or Westminster. It is sad

:24:36.:24:41.

to see, but that is the nature of the world we live in. So the

:24:42.:24:46.

stakeholders have to collectively make up the sport better and give

:24:47.:24:52.

the faith back to the supporters who want to see the game played in the

:24:53.:25:00.

best way. Thank you very much. John Scales, former England and Liverpool

:25:01.:25:06.

defender. And Ian Marsh, who played under Sam Allardyce. Anthony says

:25:07.:25:09.

the Coker of bungs has been with us since the year dot. When will the FA

:25:10.:25:15.

tackle it head on instead of accepting it? Dave says Sam

:25:16.:25:18.

Allardyce's comments were telling. He apologised for being caught

:25:19.:25:21.

rather than for the deed itself. John says, look on the bright side.

:25:22.:25:27.

How many ex-England managers can say they left the job with a 100%

:25:28.:25:31.

winning record? Somehow, I don't think that will be any consolation.

:25:32.:25:41.

Next, the investigation of the shooting down of the MH17 plane

:25:42.:25:45.

crash in Ukraine will publish its findings today.

:25:46.:25:47.

The father of a young man killed in the MH17 plane crash in Ukraine

:25:48.:25:50.

says he has no faith that a criminal investigation will find

:25:51.:25:53.

out who is responsible for his son's death.

:25:54.:25:55.

Liam Sweeney died in July 2014, when the Malaysian Airlines flight

:25:56.:25:57.

was shot down and all 298 passengers were killed.

:25:58.:26:00.

Liam was heading to see his beloved Newcastle United play

:26:01.:26:02.

Tom Burridge, the BBC's man in the Ukraine capital Kiev,

:26:03.:26:05.

went to visit a military base to find out more about the BUK

:26:06.:26:08.

missile system which is suspected of downing the passenger jet.

:26:09.:26:25.

The Buk missile system is designed to shoot down planes,

:26:26.:26:55.

missiles or drones travelling at speeds of up to 830

:26:56.:26:57.

Using the main radar and radar on the missile launchers, the

:26:58.:27:26.

Buk can track targets and establish their altitude and speed, and tell

:27:27.:27:32.

But when it comes to differentiating between civilian aircraft and enemy

:27:33.:27:41.

military planes, well, that comes down to the expertise and experience

:27:42.:27:44.

Let's talk now to Liam's dad, Barry Sweeney, who's in Newcastle.

:27:45.:28:34.

What answers would you like from this criminal investigation? The

:28:35.:28:44.

main answer I want is why? Do you think the criminal investigation

:28:45.:28:48.

will be able to give you that information? I don't think happen.

:28:49.:28:55.

Why is that the key question for you? It is something that shouldn't

:28:56.:28:58.

have happened, but whenever there is an accident, you usually know why it

:28:59.:29:04.

happened, but on this occasion, nobody knows. 298 people were on

:29:05.:29:09.

board MH17 who were either working or going to enjoy themselves, and

:29:10.:29:14.

that should not have happened. You may never find out why. Are you

:29:15.:29:23.

prepared for that? Very much so. To find out why would be a bonus. I

:29:24.:29:28.

would like to think before I go to my grave, I will find out. We are

:29:29.:29:34.

told we are expecting to find out today where this missile was fired

:29:35.:29:40.

from. That will give you a bit more information. It will. In the report

:29:41.:29:53.

last year in The Hague, it was revealed to be a surface to air

:29:54.:29:58.

missile, a Buk missile. The Russians have denied that, but I think it is

:29:59.:30:03.

probably fact. Western countries say Russian backed rebels did it. Russia

:30:04.:30:09.

has blamed Ukrainian forces. Well, in Britain you are always innocent

:30:10.:30:13.

until proven guilty. I like to think from the crash report, it was

:30:14.:30:18.

probably Russian separatists. Tell our audience about Liam. Liam grew

:30:19.:30:24.

up a happy-go-lucky lad. He probably didn't get into football until late.

:30:25.:30:30.

Once he started watching Newcastle, he went from a probably happy lad to

:30:31.:30:34.

a not so happy lad, but he loved life. He loved football. How is the

:30:35.:30:44.

family? We are doing OK. It is another part of the jigsaw, another

:30:45.:30:49.

day. I don't think the jigsaw will ever be finalised. But I try to keep

:30:50.:30:55.

positive because of Liam. He was a fun-loving lad. He enjoyed his life.

:30:56.:31:01.

Unfortunately, somebody took that away. Barry, thank you very much for

:31:02.:31:03.

talking to us. Liam died on that plane and that

:31:04.:31:14.

report is due out at about lunch time. We will bring that to you on

:31:15.:31:17.

BBC News. Still to come: Israel's

:31:18.:31:20.

former Prime Minister and President, Shimon Peres -

:31:21.:31:22.

one of the country's most prominent politicians for seven decades -

has died at the age of 93. We will talk to those who knew him.

:31:26.:31:34.

The new contract for Junor doctors is due to begin next week. At lunch

:31:35.:31:38.

time they will find out today if their legal challenge has been

:31:39.:31:42.

successful. We will talk to three junior doctors in 15 minutes time.

:31:43.:31:46.

With the news here's Joanna in the BBC Newsroom.

:31:47.:31:52.

Sam Allardyce has broken his silence about what he's

:31:53.:31:54.

calling the "error of judgement" that cost him his job

:31:55.:31:56.

as England manager after just one game in charge.

:31:57.:31:59.

Speaking in the last half hour, Allardyce apologised for offering

:32:00.:32:01.

advice on how to avoid rules on player transfers,

:32:02.:32:04.

that was secretly recorded, but he accused the newspaper

:32:05.:32:07.

undercover investigation of "entrapment".

:32:08.:32:11.

On reflection it was a silly thing to do, but just to let everybody

:32:12.:32:18.

know that I sort of helped out what was somebody I had known for 30

:32:19.:32:21.

years and unfortunately it was an error in judgement on my behalf and

:32:22.:32:24.

I paid the consequences. The Prime Minister, President Obama

:35:40.:35:40.

Thank you very much, Hugh. The veteran Israeli politician

:35:41.:35:46.

Shimon Peres has died From the declaration

:35:47.:35:48.

of the State of Israel, Shimon Peres played an important

:35:49.:35:51.

role in many governments, eventually serving twice as prime

:35:52.:35:54.

minister and once as president. He won a Nobel Peace Prize in 1994

:35:55.:35:56.

for his role in negotiating the Oslo Let's talk to a professor who helped

:35:57.:36:15.

Shimon Peres negotiate the Oslo peace accord which won him the noble

:36:16.:36:24.

peace award. We are joined by somebody who used

:36:25.:36:28.

to work with Shimon Peres. How would you sum rise Shimon Peres Shimon

:36:29.:36:32.

Peres' contribution to Israeli politics? Massive. Awesome, not just

:36:33.:36:41.

the fact that he did that for 70 years, but if you look at the

:36:42.:36:47.

quality of some of his contributions, in a very diverse way

:36:48.:36:51.

from the nuclear project in the 1950s and 1960s to the peace process

:36:52.:36:59.

of the 1990s and to rehabilitating the institution of the presidency

:37:00.:37:05.

when he became president. So in every decade in a different way, a

:37:06.:37:09.

man who went through many incarnations will always know how to

:37:10.:37:13.

reinvent himself and present different ideas and a different face

:37:14.:37:17.

to Israel and the world and in the last decade of his life, mostly as

:37:18.:37:22.

the most venerated Israeli on the global scene.

:37:23.:37:30.

Remind our British audience about the Oslo peace accord and whether

:37:31.:37:33.

you think it would be possible without him? It was signed by Oslo

:37:34.:37:45.

and the PLO. Deadly enemies for decades before that. It was based on

:37:46.:37:50.

a pedestrian kated on a mutual recognition between the State of

:37:51.:37:55.

Israel and Palestinian nationalism and it was a road map for going

:37:56.:38:01.

towards a term nant solution. That did not happen, but the mutual

:38:02.:38:08.

recognition remains valid and the police authority is still --

:38:09.:38:11.

Palestinian Authority is still in place. In order to make it happen, a

:38:12.:38:29.

partnership was needed betwe Shimon Peres' ministers. Mitchell, tell us

:38:30.:38:40.

what he was like as a man. I mean I worked with him when he was

:38:41.:38:43.

president as an international media advisor for a period of time. The

:38:44.:38:47.

guy was just dedicated to Israel's security. And really to Israel's

:38:48.:38:52.

future. Meaning at the age of 80 he kept innovating himself. It is not

:38:53.:38:57.

just as the professor said, he reinvented himself all the time, he

:38:58.:39:00.

was always innovating for himself and for Israel. He was interested in

:39:01.:39:04.

the latest technologies and his concern was not even for Israel

:39:05.:39:08.

today. He was going to finish his presidency at the age of 88 or 89 or

:39:09.:39:13.

90, he was worried about what Israel was going to look like in 10 or 20,

:39:14.:39:18.

30 years time, and what kind of technology would be there because

:39:19.:39:21.

that gives us the ability to look at the world differently and with

:39:22.:39:25.

technology the borders are not as relevant so what risks could Israel

:39:26.:39:29.

take with technology and where does Israel have to be and I give the

:39:30.:39:33.

example of the electric car which was in Israel which did not succeed,

:39:34.:39:38.

but which he was very involved in because he saw that Israel cannot be

:39:39.:39:42.

dependant on foreign oil and the technology in a small country like

:39:43.:39:46.

Israel could bring this electric car project in. So he put a lot of

:39:47.:39:49.

weight behind it and the brain science. Very few people know he

:39:50.:39:54.

spent his last years in the presidency promoting Israel as a

:39:55.:39:57.

centre of brain science and brain research in the world. And he was

:39:58.:40:00.

able to help secure Government funds for it and get some of the

:40:01.:40:04.

universities together and get some of the private industry together and

:40:05.:40:07.

I think we will start to see the fruits of that in maybe a few years,

:40:08.:40:11.

five years or ten years from now like many of the projects he did,

:40:12.:40:13.

they are really for the long-term and not for the short-term. Is

:40:14.:40:17.

unusual in Y any politician actually. He spent seven decades in

:40:18.:40:21.

Israeli politics, what will you remember him for? I mean, I think, I

:40:22.:40:29.

think that, you know, what I would remember him most for, there is a

:40:30.:40:35.

famous Sam 29 that King David wrote in Jerusalem and it says that God

:40:36.:40:39.

gives the people of Israel security, but he blesses them with peace and

:40:40.:40:44.

that sort is the story of shim shim. He spent the first number -- Shimon

:40:45.:40:55.

Peres Shimon Peres. Some of the things that the professor mentioned,

:40:56.:41:00.

the nuclear facility, the aid from France, the aid from the United

:41:01.:41:04.

States and really getting Israel as a military force to protect its

:41:05.:41:10.

citizens and then Seend to turn into a pivot and work on the peace part

:41:11.:41:14.

of the process, meaning now that Israel is secure, and Israel has the

:41:15.:41:20.

ability to take risks for peace and to really solidify the future of

:41:21.:41:24.

Israel for again ragses to come, now we can go and try and invest in

:41:25.:41:29.

peace. I think that's, you have those two components with him. First

:41:30.:41:33.

his security, ensuring Israel's security and second, is trying to

:41:34.:41:38.

ensure Israel's future and security through peace and through regional

:41:39.:41:40.

peace and peace with the Palestinians. Professor what will

:41:41.:41:48.

you remember him for? For the daily phone call when I was his ambassador

:41:49.:41:53.

in Washington and there was a project he pursued, the Middle East

:41:54.:41:57.

regional development, it would be the daily phone call, "How have you

:41:58.:42:03.

moved on?" There was the creative side, the inventive, the need to

:42:04.:42:09.

think of something new and the daily grind, the persistence and the drive

:42:10.:42:13.

and the combination of the two made him effective. Zl thank you very

:42:14.:42:16.

much, gentlemen. Thank you for coming on the programme.

:42:17.:42:21.

If you've ever struggled your way around a marathon, then you'll know

:42:22.:42:24.

what an achievement it is to cross the finish line.

:42:25.:42:27.

So imagine what it might feel like to run not one, not two,

:42:28.:42:30.

Jon Kay has been to meet a man who has just done that.

:42:31.:42:44.

My legs still hurt every single day, I'm not going to lie to you.

:42:45.:42:48.

Some mornings, I just don't want to get out of bed.

:42:49.:42:50.

In the last year, Ben Smith has run 10,000 miles.

:42:51.:42:53.

I've not had one blister or a missing toenail.

:42:54.:43:17.

Wherever he is, he is often joined by local running clubs.

:43:18.:43:26.

So we pitched up too for a couple of miles

:43:27.:43:28.

What kind of effect has this had on your body?

:43:29.:43:32.

I cannot imagine doing 401 marathons.

:43:33.:43:36.

Yeah, it's had quite an effect on my body.

:43:37.:43:38.

My body fat has dropped from 15.5% to just under 10%, so 9.5%.

:43:39.:43:45.

I feel a lot fitter, leaner, a lot healthier.

:43:46.:43:53.

Broken bones in his back meant Ben had to stop in Aberdeen.

:43:54.:44:04.

But remarkably, just ten days later, he was running marathons again

:44:05.:44:08.

and he has made up all the time and miles that he lost.

:44:09.:44:11.

My injury probably was my lowest point.

:44:12.:44:15.

I have found through this that I am quite mentally strong,

:44:16.:44:19.

so it is quite easy for me to pick myself up out of a hole.

:44:20.:44:22.

When he was younger, Ben tried to take his own life.

:44:23.:44:28.

I started to get bullied when I was ten years old.

:44:29.:44:30.

During this challenge, he stopped at 100 schools,

:44:31.:44:33.

raising awareness, also raising a target of ?250,000

:44:34.:44:38.

His message has motivated 9,000 people of all abilities

:44:39.:44:45.

and backgrounds to join him at different stages.

:44:46.:44:49.

Give me some words to sum up this man.

:44:50.:44:52.

It's commitment, dedication and the willpower to do it day

:44:53.:45:08.

in and day out and for the great charities he is doing it for.

:45:09.:45:11.

He's really showing dedication above and beyond anything

:45:12.:45:13.

What do you think of the 401?

:45:14.:45:21.

So nobody wants to be with me today.

:45:22.:45:26.

But as the months have passed, the crowds have grown.

:45:27.:45:33.

Ben has been described as a real-life Forrest Gump.

:45:34.:45:37.

Are you going to miss it when you stop?

:45:38.:45:39.

Are you going to lie there in bed and think, oh,

:45:40.:45:41.

I really want to run a marathon again today?

:45:42.:45:44.

I will probably shut myself in a dark room and rock.

:45:45.:45:49.

But even when he completes his challenge, Ben

:45:50.:45:51.

A three-month cool-down of half marathons and then shorter runs

:45:52.:45:55.

Before that, though, seven days, seven marathons to go.

:45:56.:46:09.

Junior doctors will find out today if their legal challenge

:46:10.:46:13.

against the imposition of a new contract in England

:46:14.:46:15.

The group, Justice for Health, which was behind the High Court

:46:16.:46:19.

action, says the terms of the deal are unsafe and decision-making

:46:20.:46:21.

by the Health Secretary, Jeremy Hunt, is "irrational".

:46:22.:46:23.

A Department of Health spokesperson said they could not comment

:46:24.:46:28.

until the judgement was announced later.

:46:29.:46:34.

Dr Sandy Robertson, who works in emergency medicine.

:46:35.:46:45.

Dr Julia Patterson works in psychiatry.

:46:46.:46:47.

And Dr Moosa Qureshi, he's been a junior doctor for eight

:46:48.:46:49.

If you win and the contracts cannot be imposed, then what? If we win, as

:46:50.:47:02.

we said during the case, each trust is able to choose its own contract

:47:03.:47:06.

to employ us with. So I would hope that between the trusts and asked

:47:07.:47:11.

junior doctors to the BMA, we would come to a much fairer and safer

:47:12.:47:17.

contract for all of us. Do you have confidence that it would be better?

:47:18.:47:22.

Yes, because the trusts do not have the political impetus that the

:47:23.:47:25.

Secretary of State does to try and reduce costs entirely. A lot of

:47:26.:47:33.

trusts are in deficit, as you know. They absolutely have a priority of

:47:34.:47:38.

trying to save money. They do, but the contract is not just about the

:47:39.:47:42.

money, it is about working practices. People of a four week

:47:43.:47:49.

period will be going on and off nights. That really plays with your

:47:50.:47:52.

brain and makes you make unsafe decisions. Hopefully, a new contract

:47:53.:48:01.

that we have decided with the BMA and trusts would be safer and

:48:02.:48:05.

fairer. Julia, what if you don't get the result you are hoping for

:48:06.:48:11.

regardless of the outcome today in court, we feel it has been a

:48:12.:48:14.

positive step that Justice For Health have got this to court. It

:48:15.:48:19.

has thrown the spotlight on Jeremy Hunt and his behaviour over the last

:48:20.:48:30.

12 months. But if you are ruled out... Even if the court verdict is

:48:31.:48:34.

that have failed the case, hunt himself has said he never planned to

:48:35.:48:42.

impose the deal on us, which shows that we have won. All that we want

:48:43.:48:45.

is to avoid the imposition of this unsafe contract. So if we fail in

:48:46.:48:52.

this court case and Hunt wins the court case, we would not see that as

:48:53.:48:58.

a failure. Do you, because the contracts will be rolled out from

:48:59.:49:05.

next week. As Julia said, in a way, either way we will win, because the

:49:06.:49:10.

law is on our side. The Secretary of State clearly does not have the

:49:11.:49:14.

power to impose a contract on junior doctors, despite his numerous

:49:15.:49:21.

statements to the contrary. The only way he has managed to do this is by

:49:22.:49:25.

saying he is not imposing it, which is a step down for him. The question

:49:26.:49:29.

will be whether he can get somebody else to impose the contract on his

:49:30.:49:35.

behalf. Like the trusts. This has just come in from our health

:49:36.:49:39.

correspondent, who is at the court, waiting for the outcome. It seems

:49:40.:49:42.

unlikely, regardless of the result of the review today, that the

:49:43.:49:47.

imposition of the contract will be halted. The contract is due to start

:49:48.:49:50.

rolling out next week. If the judge finds against the government and is

:49:51.:49:54.

critical of the Health Secretary, it would seem unlikely that that will

:49:55.:49:57.

extend to ordering trusts not to introduce it. But it is technically

:49:58.:50:04.

possible. 150 doctors will start on it next week. Another 2000 will

:50:05.:50:10.

follow at the end of the year. Let me explain, because it's is

:50:11.:50:15.

confusing to everyone what this court case was about and what Jeremy

:50:16.:50:19.

Hunt said. He has been taken to court for three reasons. First is

:50:20.:50:22.

that people feel he has been misleading, to the press and within

:50:23.:50:30.

the Houses of Parliament. Secondly, people feel he is acting outside of

:50:31.:50:34.

his powers as Secretary of State by saying he will impose something.

:50:35.:50:38.

Thirdly, people say he has been acting irrationally. Those are the

:50:39.:50:43.

three points we have been trying to put to the court. When the court

:50:44.:50:48.

case occurred on the 19th and 20th of September, Hunt told everybody

:50:49.:50:52.

that he had never intended to impose a contract on junior doctors at all.

:50:53.:50:57.

Of course, that is a shocking revelation to come out in court. So

:50:58.:51:02.

whatever the court ruling is today, we see it as a win because Hunt has

:51:03.:51:06.

said he will not impose this contract honours. -- on us. Where

:51:07.:51:15.

are you on the fact that the BMA junior doctors committee has called

:51:16.:51:18.

off these five day planned strikes over the next few months? Lots of

:51:19.:51:27.

people have been upset about this. Are you? Chilly yes and no. I am due

:51:28.:51:31.

to have a baby next week and there was lots of stress over whether

:51:32.:51:36.

hospitals are safe or not. As a junior doctor, I think we need to

:51:37.:51:40.

fight this contract. It is in Toronto's -- it dis- incentivise is

:51:41.:51:48.

people working in A So if not a strike, what else can you do to

:51:49.:51:53.

protest about the imposition of these contracts? That is a good

:51:54.:52:00.

question. We are all supporting the BMA because they are our union. They

:52:01.:52:07.

are still considering alternative strategies. Obviously, industrial

:52:08.:52:12.

action was a key specially and we are awaiting transparency and some

:52:13.:52:16.

reasons why they have come to this decision to call off industrial

:52:17.:52:19.

action. Well, it is patient safety. We know why. Well, we have had

:52:20.:52:26.

multiple strikes over the last year and none of them have had a

:52:27.:52:29.

detrimental effect. Not for five days in a row. But why has

:52:30.:52:36.

industrial action been suspended altogether? Because you were losing

:52:37.:52:40.

public support, perhaps? I don't think that is accurate. Polls

:52:41.:52:45.

suggest that we have very high support. But if you compare polls

:52:46.:52:49.

before the five-day strike was called off compared to recently,

:52:50.:52:52.

there has been a reduction in support. We still had a majority of

:52:53.:53:01.

support. But it was going in the wrong direction. There was a lot of

:53:02.:53:05.

media worrying about patient safety. In A, I don't feel that patients

:53:06.:53:09.

would have been compromised by us going on strike. I think it would

:53:10.:53:13.

have got us to a fairer, better contract. But at the moment, we need

:53:14.:53:18.

to work with the BMA and get our views heard. They changed their

:53:19.:53:23.

industrial action because they have views from people saying they didn't

:53:24.:53:27.

want to go ahead with it. We need to work with them and get the trusts to

:53:28.:53:30.

get a better contract for all of us so we can have a safer and fairer

:53:31.:53:36.

NHS. We will see what happens. Thank you for coming in. More on Sam

:53:37.:53:40.

Allardyce, who this morning apologised for offering advice on

:53:41.:53:44.

how to avoid rules on player transfers, but was secretly recorded

:53:45.:53:49.

by reporters. He also accused the Daily Telegraph of entrapment.

:53:50.:53:54.

Obviously, I have got to do this before I go away. But I think that

:53:55.:54:02.

on reflection, it was a silly thing to do. Just to let everybody know, I

:54:03.:54:09.

sort of helped out somebody I had known for 30 years. Unfortunately,

:54:10.:54:13.

it was an error of judgment on my behalf and I paid the consequences.

:54:14.:54:19.

Entrapment has won on this occasion and I have to accept that. The

:54:20.:54:26.

agreement was done very amicably with the FA. I apologise to those

:54:27.:54:35.

and all concerned in the unfortunate situation I put myself in. I have a

:54:36.:54:40.

confidentiality agreement, lads. I took the time to talk to you on this

:54:41.:54:45.

matter. I can't answer any more questions. What are you doing now? I

:54:46.:54:50.

am off abroad, just to chill out and reflect. I would like to wish all

:54:51.:54:54.

the England lads, Gareth and their staff the very best. Was that your

:54:55.:55:00.

last job in football? Who knows? We will see.

:55:01.:55:04.

Let's talk to Julian Eccles, a former FA chief of communications

:55:05.:55:11.

who also used to work for Ofcom, the media regulator. Was it entrapment?

:55:12.:55:18.

I don't think it was. If you look at the code of conduct that the editors

:55:19.:55:24.

now have, they list 11 matters of public interest where certain

:55:25.:55:29.

activities like this are legitimate. I think this kind of activity by the

:55:30.:55:34.

Telegraph does fall within those boundaries, not just because it is

:55:35.:55:38.

of interest to the public, but there is a legitimate reason there, where

:55:39.:55:43.

there was concealment of agents undertaking malpractice, and it gave

:55:44.:55:48.

an insight into a significant public figure who was potentially

:55:49.:55:51.

undermining important rules in the game. But they didn't know that

:55:52.:55:56.

until they got it. As far as I understand it, having read what the

:55:57.:55:59.

Telegraph had written in the last few days, there was no evidence that

:56:00.:56:02.

Sam Allardyce was doing anything wrong, which is why some of our

:56:03.:56:05.

audience believe this was a fishing expedition. If Philip Hammond had

:56:06.:56:13.

stated that the tax rules were ridiculous and they were not a

:56:14.:56:17.

problem, he would be undermining the HMRC and we can all imagine the

:56:18.:56:22.

fallout that would happen from that. I wonder why Sam Allardyce thinks it

:56:23.:56:28.

is entrapment. He is understandably feeling very bruised by the whole

:56:29.:56:32.

affair. He is hurting and our sympathies go out to him, because he

:56:33.:56:38.

is Big Sam, the lovable rogue of the game of whom we had so much

:56:39.:56:41.

expectations ahead of qualification. He will feel very bitter about that.

:56:42.:56:48.

But as he said and the FA have said, he said some unwise things and it

:56:49.:56:56.

was poor judgment. What about the spotlight shining on the FA and the

:56:57.:56:58.

fact that they appointed him not long ago? It is a real shame for

:56:59.:57:04.

them. They have a new incoming chairman, Greg Clark, and they have

:57:05.:57:08.

to start the whole process again in finding a new manager for World Cup

:57:09.:57:12.

qualification. We have been there before with the FA. And I think we

:57:13.:57:17.

will be there again at some point. We need a root and branch

:57:18.:57:20.

restructuring and modernisation of the organisation of football

:57:21.:57:25.

governance in this country. It has to learn from some of the standards

:57:26.:57:29.

brought in from business and politics after the Telegraph's

:57:30.:57:35.

revelations about MPs' expenses so that from top to bottom, there is a

:57:36.:57:39.

culture of conducting business fairly and openly so that we have

:57:40.:57:42.

trust in the game and those who govern it. Thank you for your time.

:57:43.:57:48.

David says, the press may have laid a trap, but Sam Allardyce did not

:57:49.:57:52.

have to walk into it. Shelley on Facebook says great feature on

:57:53.:57:55.

sexism in gaming. Shame you did not touch on where this culture has come

:57:56.:57:59.

from. I believe the game developers could help by making their games for

:58:00.:58:04.

everyone and not just targeting the young male audience. If games

:58:05.:58:08.

themselves were less misogynistic, perhaps we would see fewer gamers

:58:09.:58:11.

thinking of this sort of behaviour is OK. Thank you for getting in

:58:12.:58:18.

touch. BBC Newsroom Live is next. Have a good day. Back tomorrow at

:58:19.:58:19.

nine.
