Stepping up the fight against internet paedophiles. Leading search

:00:08.:00:12.

engine companies agree measures to make it harder to find child abuse

:00:13.:00:17.

images online. After months of mounting pressure, Microsoft and

:00:18.:00:20.

Google say they will act, preventing searches and triggering warnings

:00:21.:00:27.

that child abuse imagery is illegal. Google are rolling out these search

:00:28.:00:31.

blocks across the world, so people right across the globe will be safer

:00:32.:00:34.

as a result of the action that Britain is taking today. Will be

:00:35.:00:38.

assessing the impact that this will have. Also... At least six people

:00:39.:00:49.

die as powerful tornadoes carve a path of destruction across the US

:00:50.:00:54.

midwest. The cost of independence. The leading economic think tank says

:00:55.:00:57.

taxes might have to rise and spending cut if Scottish voters say

:00:58.:01:03.

yes. New pictures of the devastation caused by Typhoon Haiyan. Ten days

:01:04.:01:07.

on, we're with British forces taking aid to those most in need. And

:01:08.:01:17.

return to the TARDIS, as the 50th anniversary approaches. We meet

:01:18.:01:23.

Doctor Whos old and new. If the call comes to come and celebrate the

:01:24.:01:29.

150th -- 50th anniversary, it would be churlish to turn it down.

:01:30.:01:36.

The Surrey MP embroiled in a battle to save his parliamentary career.

:01:37.:01:58.

Good afternoon. Google and Microsoft are to introduce changes to their

:01:59.:02:06.

internet search engines which will block access to images of child sex

:02:07.:02:11.

abuse. They have developed technology that will prevent more

:02:12.:02:15.

than 100,000 search terms associated with child pornography from

:02:16.:02:19.

producing any results. Earlier this year, David Cameron said internet

:02:20.:02:23.

companies have a moral duty to act. The restrictions will be rolled out

:02:24.:02:26.

over the next six months, but critics warn that most internet

:02:27.:02:29.

paedophiles do not use ordinary search engines. Mark Bridger and

:02:30.:02:39.

Stuart Hazell, both child killers, both known to have searched the

:02:40.:02:43.

internet for child abuse images. In the summer the government told

:02:44.:02:47.

search companies they needed to stop this happening. Now Google and

:02:48.:02:52.

Microsoft have taken action. Type in any one of thousands of search terms

:02:53.:02:55.

and you will get a warning that child abuse imagery is illegal. The

:02:56.:02:59.

results are being cleaned up to make sure they can't provide a pathway to

:03:00.:03:04.

illegal material. In a rare show of unity, the two firms outlined their

:03:05.:03:08.

measures. This change to our search engine, which covers 100,000 terms,

:03:09.:03:13.

should make it much more difficult to find this content online. With

:03:14.:03:27.

both been working in this space for a long time, but we welcome the

:03:28.:03:29.

additional attention that has been brought to the issue. We are

:03:30.:03:32.

passionate and committed to this and will continue to work very hard on

:03:33.:03:34.

it collaboratively -- elaborate of league going forward. But the Prime

:03:35.:03:36.

Minister believes that without his intervention, this would not have

:03:37.:03:38.

happened. He is meeting the internet companies in Downing Street, and

:03:39.:03:41.

warning if they don't deliver on their promises he will bring in new

:03:42.:03:46.

laws. But the Government says much has been achieved. The great news is

:03:47.:03:50.

that Google are rolling out these search blocks across the world. So

:03:51.:03:53.

people right across the globe will be safer as a result of the action

:03:54.:03:58.

that Britain is taken today. It's widely accepted that most of these

:03:59.:04:02.

images aren't available for our searches but are hidden on what is

:04:03.:04:20.

known as the dark web. One former senior police chief isn't convinced

:04:21.:04:23.

the measures will make a big difference. Let's not think that we

:04:24.:04:25.

have really achieved something that will make children safer, because we

:04:26.:04:27.

haven't. Paedophiles do not go online and search out the images on

:04:28.:04:29.

Google, Bing or Yahoo. The hard-core paedophile lives in the deepest,

:04:30.:04:31.

darkest recesses of the internet. The National Crime Agency will now

:04:32.:04:34.

use Google and Microsoft technology to help trace child abuse material

:04:35.:04:36.

and those behind it in the dark corners of the web. Nobody expects

:04:37.:04:41.

that task to be simple. How much impact will this move have?

:04:42.:04:47.

Everybody agrees this only tackles part of the problem. This will

:04:48.:04:50.

tackle the people who are coming across this imagery, they might say

:04:51.:04:56.

accidentally, stumbling across it and perhaps showing curiosity. It

:04:57.:04:58.

will make it much harder for them to get access to it. But as you heard,

:04:59.:05:04.

most of this imagery is believed to be held probably on American sites

:05:05.:05:09.

that are hidden from the general web searches. The fight goes on to track

:05:10.:05:13.

down the people putting that material online and then sharing it.

:05:14.:05:21.

Powerful tornadoes and thunderstorms have left a trail of destruction

:05:22.:05:25.

across five American States, from Kentucky Tomic again. At least six

:05:26.:05:29.

people have been killed, as buildings were destroyed, vehicles

:05:30.:05:32.

overturned, trees uprooted and power lines brought down. Our Father who

:05:33.:05:44.

art in heaven... What else to do but pray when you see this ripping up

:05:45.:05:53.

everything in its path? In Illinois they are used to tornadoes, but

:05:54.:05:56.

there was little defence against such a giant. This thing is getting

:05:57.:06:02.

really wide. Storm system moved fast, triggering dozens of so-called

:06:03.:06:08.

twisters across the midwest. This was four separate ones and now it's

:06:09.:06:14.

turned into one big one. Those who could left their homes and fled its

:06:15.:06:18.

destructive path. This is as close as I ever want to get. Go, go, go!

:06:19.:06:25.

And in the wake of the vortex of wind, the torrential rain. Then

:06:26.:06:33.

hailstones added to the swathe of damage. After the storm, people

:06:34.:06:40.

emerged to find whole neighbourhoods flattened. Washington, in Illinois,

:06:41.:06:44.

was the worst hit. Many had thought tornadoes this late in the season

:06:45.:06:48.

wouldn't be so serious and they'd taken shelter in their houses. It's

:06:49.:06:53.

like a loud train. I said, this isn't right, it's not thunder. It

:06:54.:06:58.

kept coming and getting louder. Then we went in the basement. About ten

:06:59.:07:02.

seconds later I felt the house shaking. I waited about a minute and

:07:03.:07:08.

then came back up. I saw what you are seeing here. My husband came

:07:09.:07:12.

back and I said, I don't know what to do. We stood in the hallway,

:07:13.:07:15.

where there were no windows, and just held each other. It was that

:07:16.:07:21.

quick. The storm weakened as it moved east, but its impact is far

:07:22.:07:25.

from over for these shattered communities. There is no power and

:07:26.:07:28.

there are fears that many may still be trapped under the rubble. A woman

:07:29.:07:35.

has pleaded guilty to murdering three men whose bodies were found

:07:36.:07:40.

dumped in remote ditches in Cambridge. Joanna Dennehy, who is

:07:41.:07:45.

30, also admitted attempting to murder two other men. What happened

:07:46.:07:51.

in court? This was a plea that no one was expecting. It was supposed

:07:52.:07:55.

to be just a standard court appearance before trial, and the

:07:56.:07:58.

trial date is still fixed for later this year. Suddenly, when asked how

:07:59.:08:04.

she plead, she stood up and said she pleaded guilty to the 11 charges

:08:05.:08:11.

against her. That of the murder of a 31-year-old man, a 56 heir man and a

:08:12.:08:16.

48-year-old man. Their bodies were found dumped in ditches in

:08:17.:08:20.

Cambridgeshire in March and April this year. Each had suffered

:08:21.:08:24.

multiple stab wounds. She was also charged with and has pleaded guilty

:08:25.:08:28.

to two counter the tented murder. It was something which took her

:08:29.:08:33.

barristers by surprise. The court adjourned briefly and the barristers

:08:34.:08:37.

will be coming back to the old baby necks -- the Old Bailey next Monday.

:08:38.:08:44.

After entering the pleas, Joanna Dennehy said to the judge, I don't

:08:45.:08:48.

have any wish to say anything else, I've already pleaded guilty. No date

:08:49.:08:56.

has been set for sentencing. An independent Scotland would have to

:08:57.:09:00.

cut public spending by as much as 80% or significantly raise taxes.

:09:01.:09:04.

That is according to a report published by the Institute for

:09:05.:09:07.

Fiscal Studies. They say an independent Scotland would face more

:09:08.:09:10.

than double the size of the challenge of big UK as a whole in

:09:11.:09:15.

bringing its debts down. James Cooke is in Edinburgh for us. This report

:09:16.:09:23.

here really gets to the heart of the independence debate, considering one

:09:24.:09:27.

of the key questions. How does any state afford to pay for the services

:09:28.:09:31.

and benefits that its people want and expect from it? It has to be

:09:32.:09:36.

said, it is campaigners against independents who are giving this

:09:37.:09:41.

report and enthusiastic welcome. What would the future hold for the

:09:42.:09:45.

people of an independent Scotland? Where would they find their money,

:09:46.:09:50.

what would their Government spend it on? The Institute for Fiscal Studies

:09:51.:09:54.

has been trying to predict, and it concludes that Scotland would face a

:09:55.:09:59.

tougher future outside the UK. The ISS says that last year government

:10:00.:10:03.

spending was 11% higher per person in Scotland than the UK average. To

:10:04.:10:07.

begin with, an independent Scotland's oil revenues would make

:10:08.:10:13.

up the shortfall. But the long-term, the ISS says Scotland would need to

:10:14.:10:16.

save ?6 billion. That's the equivalent in a 9% rise in the basic

:10:17.:10:23.

rise of income tax or at 6% cut in public spending. Is independence a

:10:24.:10:30.

daft idea? It's not. Scotland wouldn't be that small and economy

:10:31.:10:34.

by international standards. It could thrive as an independent country but

:10:35.:10:37.

there are many challenges it could face. They could need a combination

:10:38.:10:41.

of bigger tax rises or deeper spending cuts than the UK over the

:10:42.:10:45.

long term to deal with the challenge of an ageing population. In essence,

:10:46.:10:51.

the ISS is saying oil flatters the Scottish economy, but the Scottish

:10:52.:10:55.

government disagrees. John Swinney says that even without oil and gas,

:10:56.:10:59.

Scotland has strong financial and economic foundations. He adds, this

:11:00.:11:05.

report actually underlines the case for an independent Scotland with

:11:06.:11:08.

full control of its own economy and the ability to take decisions that

:11:09.:11:13.

can secure a stronger and more prosperous future. Either way, this

:11:14.:11:17.

document seems certain to be cited time and again as Scotland prepares

:11:18.:11:20.

to vote on independence ten months today. It is already being cited by

:11:21.:11:30.

Alistair Darling, the leader of the better together campaign against

:11:31.:11:34.

independents, who says this is a sober and impartial analysis which

:11:35.:11:39.

leaves the SNP's economic case for independence in tatters. The SNP get

:11:40.:11:43.

a chance to respond in more detail later. They are publishing a White

:11:44.:11:50.

Paper next week. The former Labour MP Denis McShane has pleaded guilty

:11:51.:11:54.

at the Old Bailey to making bogus expense claims of nearly ?13,000. He

:11:55.:12:00.

was accused of producing 19 invoices for a search and translation service

:12:01.:12:03.

in the name of the company called EPI, which were false or misleading.

:12:04.:12:09.

He's been bailed until December 19, when he will be sentenced. A British

:12:10.:12:14.

woman was among the 50 people killed in a plane crash in Russia. Donna

:12:15.:12:19.

Bull, who worked at Bellerby 's College in Cambridge, was on a

:12:20.:12:23.

10-day marketing trip when she died. The Boeing 737 was attempting a

:12:24.:12:27.

second landing when it hit the ground and caught fire. Fresh

:12:28.:12:34.

pictures have emerged of the moment Typhoon high and hit the Philippines

:12:35.:12:39.

ten days ago. The footage shows the storm surge caused by the extremely

:12:40.:12:43.

high winds, sweeping into the town on the island of someone. The

:12:44.:12:48.

pictures were shot by a charity worker from the top story of a

:12:49.:12:51.

boarding house, where six people were taking shelter. More than 4000

:12:52.:12:57.

people are now thought to have been killed by the typhoon and more than

:12:58.:13:02.

18,000 injured. The Royal Navy's HMS Daring arrived in the Philippines at

:13:03.:13:06.

the weekend, bringing food, medicine and temporary shelters. A British

:13:07.:13:16.

warship joining the massive international effort to get help to

:13:17.:13:22.

places flattened by the typhoon. HMS Daring was on a training exercise of

:13:23.:13:26.

Malaysia when the call came. It headed at full speed to the

:13:27.:13:31.

Philippines. The helicopter on board has been key to finding which remote

:13:32.:13:37.

islands are most in need of help. This is the view they had from

:13:38.:13:41.

on-board will stop here, a boat washed ashore. And along the coast,

:13:42.:13:47.

villages destroyed by the high winds. They took photographs of the

:13:48.:13:53.

coastal communities. Badly hit but not yet receiving the kind of aid

:13:54.:13:57.

now being seen elsewhere. We've been shocked by some of the damage that

:13:58.:14:01.

has been caused. Towards the north-eastern areas, there are some

:14:02.:14:04.

islands there that have been severely damaged. Houses flattened,

:14:05.:14:12.

yes, some really bad damage. The path of the typhoon... The captain

:14:13.:14:17.

of HMS Daring explained where that was, and how Britain's limited

:14:18.:14:22.

resources can help. We can make a vast amount of difference in the

:14:23.:14:25.

initial stages of this kind of operation. We can bring things in

:14:26.:14:30.

such as water and food come to establish the needs and communicate

:14:31.:14:33.

them back to the government and non-government organisations who can

:14:34.:14:37.

provide the longer term assistance these communities require. The

:14:38.:14:41.

mission is for HMS Daring to get back up to those areas it has

:14:42.:14:44.

identified as needing help. The helicopter will continue to make

:14:45.:14:49.

assessments and the age -- which they've brought on board will be

:14:50.:14:52.

taken out of those people who most need it. Extra supplies have been

:14:53.:14:59.

brought abroad. Top all in, food, medicines and containers to deliver

:15:00.:15:02.

sea water purified on the ship. It's a small but significant part of a

:15:03.:15:06.

huge effort to help at least 3 million people whose homes have been

:15:07.:15:17.

destroyed. Our top story. Google and Microsoft are to introduce changes

:15:18.:15:20.

to their internet search engines, which will block access to images of

:15:21.:15:31.

child sex abuse. Later on BBC London, the fire brigade's new

:15:32.:15:38.

exercise. And the research centre calling for hands-free phones to be

:15:39.:15:45.

banned in cars. It was a planet which scientists

:15:46.:15:48.

believe had flowing w0ater and the ability to support life. Mars was

:15:49.:15:53.

once warm and wet. But something happened to its atmosphere, and the

:15:54.:15:57.

Red Planet turned into a cold, dry, and inhospitable place. As our

:15:58.:16:06.

science correspondent Pallab Ghosh explains, the Maven spacecraft will

:16:07.:16:09.

orbit 4,000 miles above Mars to try to find out why. All set and ready

:16:10.:16:17.

for launch. NASA's latest mission to Mars. Its aim is to discover how it

:16:18.:16:22.

ended up the dry, dead planet we see today. This is what it was probably

:16:23.:16:28.

like 4 billion years ago - a beautiful, habitable world, with

:16:29.:16:32.

flowing water and a thick, cloudy atmosphere. Something clearly

:16:33.:16:39.

happened. Water was abundant on early Mars. The environment was

:16:40.:16:43.

capable of supporting liquid water, yet today we see an environment

:16:44.:16:48.

unable to support water. We want to understand the reasons for the

:16:49.:16:54.

change in that climate. NASA's Maven spacecraft will spend a year

:16:55.:16:58.

studying the Martian atmosphere. Much of what we currently know comes

:16:59.:17:04.

from meteorites fallen to earth. This is a meteorite fallen from

:17:05.:17:08.

Mars. Locked inside it is the Martian atmosphere as it was in the

:17:09.:17:12.

distant past. It suggests that it was once like the Earth's and

:17:13.:17:18.

capable of supporting life. The aim of the new mission is to find out

:17:19.:17:23.

what the Red Planet was really like billions of years ago. The great

:17:24.:17:27.

mystery was how Mars lost its once rich atmosphere. It is thought that

:17:28.:17:33.

particles from the Sun, called solar wind, ripped it away. The solar wind

:17:34.:17:38.

has been tugging away at the atmosphere causing it to escape into

:17:39.:17:42.

space. We want to measure the current rate that is happening, and

:17:43.:17:47.

to extrapolate back to see what the atmospheric pressure might have been

:17:48.:17:50.

like 4 billion years ago. The mission may well show that Mars was

:17:51.:17:55.

one similar to the Earth, and help solve the mystery of how it became a

:17:56.:18:02.

desolate world we know today. Police in Paris are on high alert

:18:03.:18:08.

after gun attacks at the newspaper Liberation and the banks Asir Tage

:18:09.:18:15.

in a row. French media ordered a hostagetaking -- reported a

:18:16.:18:18.

hostagetaking on the Champs Elysees. What has been happening? We

:18:19.:18:23.

have a huge manhunt under way here in Paris. The Interior Minister says

:18:24.:18:28.

he has been called by the president, who is out of the country at the

:18:29.:18:33.

moment, and make available every need -- every available means to

:18:34.:18:37.

capture this man. He shot a reporter this morning twice in the chest, and

:18:38.:18:44.

he is said to be in a critical condition. Further to that, the man

:18:45.:18:49.

appeared in the business district and seem to be firing into the air

:18:50.:18:56.

or into the Windows of buildings. Police said he then commandeered a

:18:57.:19:00.

vehicle and made that man drive him to the Champs Elysees, the main

:19:01.:19:04.

shopping street here in Paris. Very busy at the moment with a Christmas

:19:05.:19:09.

market. He was dropped somewhere halfway down the Champs Elysees. At

:19:10.:19:15.

that point, he has disappeared, but he is clearly armed and dangerous.

:19:16.:19:19.

He has already opened fire twice in Paris this morning, and police have

:19:20.:19:23.

helicopters over the city at a moment trying to find him. Thank

:19:24.:19:26.

you. There are warnings today that the

:19:27.:19:31.

legacy of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games will fall to if

:19:32.:19:35.

the government doesn't do more to support it. A House of Lords" is

:19:36.:19:39.

says that while the Games were an outstanding success, there has been

:19:40.:19:44.

little evidence of change in levels of participation. There are calls

:19:45.:19:47.

for a minister to oversee the legacy.

:19:48.:19:54.

Inspire a generation was the clarion call of London 2012. While the

:19:55.:19:58.

memories of a golden summer for British sport still burn bright, a

:19:59.:20:02.

new report warns that the flames are in danger of flickering out when it

:20:03.:20:08.

comes to London's legacy. We want to see somebody at Cabinet level who

:20:09.:20:11.

has the clear responsibility for making sure that their colleagues

:20:12.:20:15.

across all departments deliver on the legacy of the Olympic Games. The

:20:16.:20:19.

cross-party group of peers are also critical about how the benefits have

:20:20.:20:25.

been geographically spread, with foreign investment as a result of

:20:26.:20:31.

London 2012 resulting in 15,000 jobs in the south-east, but just seven in

:20:32.:20:36.

the north-east. Overall, the report at knowledge is that London 2012 was

:20:37.:20:41.

a success, but it does not see a step change in the number of people

:20:42.:20:44.

participating in sport, a clear pledge leading up to the Games. Now,

:20:45.:20:49.

more needs to be done to keep the Olympic spirit alive.

:20:50.:20:55.

A jury at the Old Bailey has -- Old Bailey has been hearing that Rebekah

:20:56.:20:59.

Brooks was a very demanding editor when she was in charge at the News

:21:00.:21:03.

of the World. A barrister says she wanted high standards. Our

:21:04.:21:09.

correspondent was in court. Justin Wolford, who advised editors and

:21:10.:21:14.

desk editors about the legality of stories, said that Rebekah Brooks

:21:15.:21:18.

was a demanding editor but passionate about her newspaper. Andy

:21:19.:21:23.

Coulson was risk averse, but was somebody who wanted to get stories

:21:24.:21:27.

into the paper. The prosecution says some of those stories were sourced

:21:28.:21:32.

through phone hacking. The lawyer representing Mrs Brooks was asked if

:21:33.:21:38.

he could remember any story sourced by phone hacking. What could he

:21:39.:21:43.

remember advising about the legality of phone hacking? He couldn't

:21:44.:21:49.

remember anything about Glenn Mulcaire. Journalists were very

:21:50.:21:57.

protective, apparently, about their sources. He said he had the

:21:58.:22:01.

lawyers' focus. He said he looked at what was written in the story,

:22:02.:22:05.

rather than the sourcing of it. He was asked to monitored the method

:22:06.:22:14.

you spy -- used by journalists. He said that that was the department

:22:15.:22:19.

heads. The prosecutor asked to monitored the methods of the

:22:20.:22:22.

department heads. He said that that would be the editor and the managing

:22:23.:22:27.

editor. Rebekah Brooks and Andy Coulson deny all the charges they

:22:28.:22:32.

face here at the Old Bailey. Thank you. With only three days to

:22:33.:22:38.

go until the Ashes get started in Australia, England are given --

:22:39.:22:41.

giving the wicketkeeper Matt prior as long as possible to prove his

:22:42.:22:47.

fitness ahead of the first test in Brisbane. But the front pages are

:22:48.:22:53.

taken up with Kevin Pietersen, who has tweeted that no one outside of

:22:54.:22:58.

Australia has heard of Brisbane. Matt Prior on Monday came through a

:22:59.:23:06.

session in the nets. For England, putting on his pants was an

:23:07.:23:09.

incorrigible sign. Right now, there's plenty of torque. James

:23:10.:23:17.

Anderson and Graeme Swann on BBC, making use of a cosy studio in

:23:18.:23:23.

Brisbane. Ashes past will not define the future necessarily. One thing we

:23:24.:23:29.

are excited by was that we didn't play our best in England against

:23:30.:23:33.

Australia, but we still ended up winning 3-0. We are hopeful we are

:23:34.:23:37.

going to play better cricket than we did, and we know we will have to

:23:38.:23:41.

play better cricket than we did to have a chance of winning. If England

:23:42.:23:46.

say they have to get better, what about Australia? Across Brisbane,

:23:47.:23:51.

here is their training session. Shane Watson bowled very gingerly,

:23:52.:23:56.

but it is a sign of progress in his fitness battle. David Warner got his

:23:57.:24:05.

famous fighting hands flying. As far as I am concerned from the

:24:06.:24:08.

Australian point of view, we are very up for the final. I don't

:24:09.:24:15.

really care what England is doing. England are in Brisbane. Kevin

:24:16.:24:18.

Pietersen's walk through the airport was deemed front-page news in one

:24:19.:24:24.

newspaper, apparently a display of extreme arrogance. Responding on

:24:25.:24:28.

Twitter, Kevin Pietersen said no one outside of Australia had heard of

:24:29.:24:33.

Brisbane. This was Monday afternoon. Similar weather is

:24:34.:24:38.

predicted later in the week. Take shelter anywhere. For all the

:24:39.:24:41.

aggression, the first test might require plenty of patience.

:24:42.:24:47.

He spent nearly a millennium travelling light years from home,

:24:48.:24:52.

but now the Doctor has reached a special milestone - half a century

:24:53.:24:57.

on our television screens. The occasion is being marked tonight

:24:58.:25:00.

with a special ceremony at Buckingham Palace, the first of a

:25:01.:25:05.

series of events leading up to the 50th anniversary episode of Doctor

:25:06.:25:15.

Who on Saturday. It is a story viewers have been

:25:16.:25:19.

anticipating for years. It is such a significant celebration of Doctor

:25:20.:25:25.

Who, a few things had to be included. There's aliens, a

:25:26.:25:31.

companion, and a Time Lord. Or two. Or three. I'm looking for the

:25:32.:25:43.

Doctor. Well, you've certainly come to the right place. This is the

:25:44.:25:46.

episode people have been talking about for so long. It is a great

:25:47.:25:52.

privilege. It is a thrill. It has been really thrilling to make. There

:25:53.:25:56.

is something extraordinary about all the doctors meeting, which made it

:25:57.:26:02.

very fun to act in and be part of. For the Golden -- anniversary, the

:26:03.:26:10.

show is welcoming back David Tennant's doctor, last seen several

:26:11.:26:15.

years ago. I am none -- I am 904 years old. I am the bringer of

:26:16.:26:21.

darkness. And you are basically just a rabbit.

:26:22.:26:27.

It is completely different and yet weirdly familiar. Lovely to be back.

:26:28.:26:34.

Was it a hard decision? Not really. If the call comes to come and

:26:35.:26:38.

celebrate Doctor Who's 50th anniversary, it would be churlish to

:26:39.:26:42.

turn it down. Joining them is better and actor John hurt, as another

:26:43.:26:47.

incarnation of the Time Lord. He says he jumped at the opportunity to

:26:48.:26:54.

take part. It is irresistible. The enquiry came in, and I thought, I

:26:55.:26:58.

will have to have a go at that. I've never done anything like this

:26:59.:27:02.

before. Perhaps the luckiest person onset is companion Clara, played by

:27:03.:27:10.

Jenna Coleman. Another companion has been added to the mix. Who is your

:27:11.:27:17.

favourite? You can't do that to me! They are really close. I am spoilt

:27:18.:27:24.

for choice right now. The full details of the plot are still under

:27:25.:27:30.

wraps, but, predict to Billy, expectations for this particular

:27:31.:27:35.

adventure are understandably high. Of course, because of the interest

:27:36.:27:40.

in this story, it has a difficult balancing act. It has to entertain

:27:41.:27:44.

occasional viewers watching because of the special nature of the

:27:45.:27:49.

episode, while at the same time, satisfying long-term fans. Great men

:27:50.:27:55.

are forged in fire. That is what the Doctor Who team is promising - and

:27:56.:28:01.

episode that celebrates the past as well is looking to the future.

:28:02.:28:07.

With the weather, here is Darren. The much heralded cold weather is

:28:08.:28:17.

beginning to arrive. We still have mild conditions across England and

:28:18.:28:22.

Wales, but it isn't lasting, because the colder air is pushing into

:28:23.:28:26.

Scotland and Northern Ireland. You can see the difference on the

:28:27.:28:29.

satellite picture. In the mild area we have flat, layered cloud, and we

:28:30.:28:35.

have speckled cloud in the cold area. A spell of rain is pushing

:28:36.:28:39.

into the Midlands and into the south-west. Behind it, some

:28:40.:28:44.

sunshine. Showers turning increasingly wintry in Scotland and

:28:45.:28:48.

Northern Ireland. Temperatures are milder in the south and south-east.

:28:49.:28:53.

That mild as soon gets pushed away. We are all going to get into the

:28:54.:28:58.

cold conditions overnight. Widespread frost, and maybe some icy

:28:59.:29:02.

roads as well. This band of rain shouldn't last long. Then, the

:29:03.:29:07.

clearer, colder air that follows. Northern winds bringing increasingly

:29:08.:29:13.

wintry showers into Scotland, Northern Ireland, parts of England

:29:14.:29:18.

and Wales. The risk of icy roads is mainly from Wales northwards. A

:29:19.:29:24.

really cold start to tomorrow. There could well be some snow in lower

:29:25.:29:29.

levels in Scotland. Some wintry showers grazing the west Coast of

:29:30.:29:36.

Scotland. For a while, maybe some snow in Northern Ireland as well.

:29:37.:29:41.

The showers feeding over the Irish Sea, maybe coming into western

:29:42.:29:44.

Wales, and one or two in the Midlands and towards the south-west.

:29:45.:29:50.

For many eastern areas of the UK, it will start try and sunny. It will

:29:51.:29:55.

certainly be cold, with a frost in most places. The winds keep the

:29:56.:30:00.

showers going, mainly around western coastal areas here. Later, we will

:30:01.:30:05.

see the Kirk loud and wet weather in the north-west of Scotland, but many

:30:06.:30:12.

will have a dry day tomorrow. But a good few degrees colder than we have

:30:13.:30:17.

had for some time. Frost in the south tomorrow night. We have wet

:30:18.:30:20.

and windy weather around the low pressure coming into the north. For

:30:21.:30:26.

a while, a spell of snow over the Highlands and Grampians, but it is

:30:27.:30:30.

mostly going to be rain that is driven southwards on Wednesday

:30:31.:30:34.

across the whole of the UK by some pretty lively winds. Severe gales in

:30:35.:30:39.

the north. It will feel cold in the wind, and it stays cold through the

:30:40.:30:46.

rest of the week. A reminder of our main story this

:30:47.:30:51.

lunchtime: Google and Microsoft are to introduce changes to their

:30:52.:30:56.

Internet search engines which will block access to images
