as the 45th President of the United States,

:00:08.:00:11.

after a bitter election which divided America.

:00:12.:00:20.

What we have done is so special. All over the world they are talking

:00:21.:00:27.

about it. All over the world. This is the warship USS Alabama. He

:00:28.:00:40.

held a rally in this city and we have come here to ask voters what

:00:41.:00:45.

they want from him as President Trump.

:00:46.:00:57.

Good morning it's Friday 20th January.

:00:58.:01:05.

Hundreds of thousands of people are expected to attend the presidential

:01:06.:01:09.

inauguration. Rescue teams in Italy search

:01:10.:01:12.

through the night for survivors In sport, Andy Murray,

:01:13.:01:15.

is cruising towards the 4th While, Englands cricketers

:01:16.:01:19.

were beaten again, as India clinched a thrilling

:01:20.:01:22.

victory in second one-day Good morning. A cold frosty start

:01:23.:01:38.

across much of England but there will be some sunshine to follow.

:01:39.:01:43.

Cloudy for much of northern England, Northern Ireland and southern

:01:44.:01:47.

Scotland. The weekend looking fairly quiet if chilly.

:01:48.:01:50.

The eyes of the world will be on America this afternoon,

:01:51.:01:55.

when Donald Trump will be sworn in as

:01:56.:01:57.

the 45th President of the United States,

:01:58.:01:59.

signalling the most radical change in the US government

:02:00.:02:01.

His inauguration takes place at 5 o'clock this afternoon UK time.

:02:02.:02:10.

Throughout the morning on Breakfast, we'll be speaking to people

:02:11.:02:13.

and hearing the thoughts of American voters.

:02:14.:02:15.

Last night, in the shadow of the Lincoln Memorial,

:02:16.:02:18.

who upset all the odds to win November's election,

:02:19.:02:23.

told the crowd that he will unify the country

:02:24.:02:25.

and give a voice to people who had been forgotten.

:02:26.:02:29.

Our Washington reporter Laura Bicker has more.

:02:30.:02:38.

for one of the greatest political shows on Earth.

:02:39.:02:45.

And centre stage for this welcome concert is its star.

:02:46.:02:51.

at Donald Trump's inauguration crowds,

:02:52.:02:54.

his chance to address those who put him in office.

:02:55.:02:58.

but they did not want to give us credit,

:02:59.:03:04.

because they forgot about a lot of us.

:03:05.:03:08.

"the forgotten man and the forgotten woman,"

:03:09.:03:13.

well, you are not forgotten any more, that I can tell you.

:03:14.:03:17.

Few predicted he would be the 45th president,

:03:18.:03:25.

but the businessman says he has plans.

:03:26.:03:29.

We are going to do things that haven't been done for our country

:03:30.:03:34.

As Trump supporters lined the Lincoln Memorial to cheer,

:03:35.:03:44.

In New York, thousands marched to the Trump Hotel,

:03:45.:03:49.

with a message for the new commander-in-chief.

:03:50.:03:52.

We are all rooting for the new administration,

:03:53.:03:54.

of course, to abandon the divisive, racist, misogynistic,

:03:55.:03:59.

and lead us with intelligence and compassion.

:04:00.:04:08.

Donald Trump may be toasting his victory

:04:09.:04:10.

he knows he has won the hearts of those he calls the "forgotten,"

:04:11.:04:16.

but there is work to do if he is to persuade

:04:17.:04:19.

Laura joins us from our Washington bureau this morning.

:04:20.:04:32.

Laura,what can we expect from the rest of the day?

:04:33.:04:38.

At midday is when the transfer of power becomes a reality for Donald

:04:39.:04:48.

Trump. 35 words will make him president of the united states with

:04:49.:04:53.

his hands on the Bible is not just the link and Bible but one he has

:04:54.:04:58.

had since a boy. After that all eyes and ears will be on his address. His

:04:59.:05:05.

words at that moment on those steps will matter because hundreds of

:05:06.:05:11.

thousands are expected to line up as supporters but many more are

:05:12.:05:16.

protesting and over the weekend. It has been one of the most divisive,

:05:17.:05:22.

controversial elections it has exposed the fault lies across the US

:05:23.:05:27.

and if he is to unify it, those words have to have meeting and we

:05:28.:05:32.

are told he will be personal and sincere.

:05:33.:05:33.

You can watch live coverage of today's inauguration ceremony

:05:34.:05:35.

from 3 o'clock this afternoon on the BBC News Channel

:05:36.:05:38.

We will have coverage throughout the morning as well.

:05:39.:05:49.

Rescuers in Italy have worked through the night,

:05:50.:05:51.

in the hope of finding more survivors from an avalanche that

:05:52.:05:54.

and as many as 35 others are missing.

:05:55.:06:00.

Four earthquakes above magnitude five rocked the Rigopiano hotel,

:06:01.:06:03.

in the Abruzzo region of Italy, two days ago,

:06:04.:06:07.

This was the hotel Rigopiano in the height of summer and this was of the

:06:08.:06:22.

hotel after the avalanche struck. Parts of it barely visible under

:06:23.:06:26.

tons of snow and ice. Reports said one we was shafted ten metres of its

:06:27.:06:32.

foundation. Residents were waiting for either Kuwait and when it

:06:33.:06:37.

struck. On arriving, rescuers found an incredible silence and an

:06:38.:06:41.

interior filled with snow set rockhard. About 30 people were in

:06:42.:06:48.

the hotel at the time and most are still missing. The rescue operation

:06:49.:06:52.

is continuing throughout the night. The chances are slim but some people

:06:53.:06:57.

may have survived. TRANSLATION: Hope is what keeps the workers going. If

:06:58.:07:05.

there was no hope they would not keep going. We have had some

:07:06.:07:08.

technical problems but there is hope. As people struggle to reach

:07:09.:07:13.

the site by road, there was criticism about the delay in

:07:14.:07:19.

launching the action. People find all help but initially at least no

:07:20.:07:27.

one in authority realise the seriousness of the situation.

:07:28.:07:30.

Three people have died and at least 25 people have been injured

:07:31.:07:33.

after a driver deliberately crashed into a crowd of people

:07:34.:07:36.

Our correspondent Hywell Griffith joins us now.

:07:37.:07:44.

Good morning. Take us through the sequence of events. This happened

:07:45.:07:54.

right in the heart of Melbourne at a busy lunchtime. The driver

:07:55.:07:58.

deliberately seeking out pedestrians, mounting foot parts, we

:07:59.:08:05.

are told by eyewitness he was determined to strike people down. A

:08:06.:08:14.

man carried 30 metres on the bonnet. Another person sought a pram being

:08:15.:08:21.

struck and we believe the child is in a critical condition. Three

:08:22.:08:27.

people have died, including a child, another child in a critical

:08:28.:08:30.

condition. Police said this was not a terror attack but the suspect is

:08:31.:08:42.

said to be involved in a previous stabbing incident. Police shot him

:08:43.:08:49.

but his injuries are not life-threatening.

:08:50.:08:49.

A group of British doctors say they've transformed

:08:50.:08:51.

the diagnosis of prostate cancer by using MRI scans.

:08:52.:08:54.

It's the most common type of cancer in men in the UK

:08:55.:08:57.

and is normally confirmed with an invasive biopsy.

:08:58.:08:59.

Researchers believe advanced MRI's could reduce the number of men

:09:00.:09:02.

who need biopsies, which can lead to severe side-effects.

:09:03.:09:10.

The future of thousands of free cash machines is in doubt

:09:11.:09:13.

as bankers demand a cut in the cost of running the Link network.

:09:14.:09:16.

They're calling for a 20% reduction in a fee the bank incurs

:09:17.:09:20.

Some on the industry say the current system makes no economic sense

:09:21.:09:25.

since cash withdrawals are on the decline,

:09:26.:09:27.

as more people are using contactless payments.

:09:28.:09:30.

One independent ATM operator said a quarter of free-to-use sites

:09:31.:09:33.

If you've ever wondered how an ant finds its way back to its nest,

:09:34.:09:43.

then scientists at the University of Edinburgh say

:09:44.:09:45.

They say the insects find their way using the sun

:09:46.:09:50.

as a compass and visual memories of their surroundings,

:09:51.:09:53.

despite having a brain smaller than a pin head.

:09:54.:09:56.

Researchers hope to use their findings to develop

:09:57.:09:58.

miniature robots that can navigate like ants in areas

:09:59.:10:00.

I am looking at me! LAUGHTER -- why are you. Sorry we did seem to be

:10:01.:10:18.

looking at Europe. Nick has your Weekend Weather

:10:19.:10:24.

in five minutes' time. Anyway... Andy Murray, no such

:10:25.:10:37.

problems. Andy Murray, is looking in control

:10:38.:10:43.

of his his 3rd round match, He's up against the number 31 seed

:10:44.:10:46.

American Sam Querrey, He is already two sets to love up

:10:47.:10:59.

and he has already broken in the third set.

:11:00.:11:01.

Englands cricketers were beaten again,

:11:02.:11:02.

in a thrilling second one-day international to take the series.

:11:03.:11:07.

The defending champion Ronnie O'Sullivan,

:11:08.:11:08.

is into the semi-finals of the Masters Snooker

:11:09.:11:10.

O'Sullivan is attempting to win a record seventh title and will next

:11:11.:11:16.

The British sailor Alex Thomson will finish second in the Vendee Globe

:11:17.:11:28.

round the world Yacht race behind frenchman Armel Le Claeach,

:11:29.:11:30.

who smashed the previous record by almost 4 days.

:11:31.:11:33.

If he makes it within an hour or so, we will be speaking to Alex. Not far

:11:34.:11:47.

to go now. After so many days! He is going to be exhausted. He has to

:11:48.:11:55.

speak to somebody. We followed him last time he did it. Looking through

:11:56.:12:02.

some of the front pages and obviously events in the US

:12:03.:12:06.

dominating the front pages. You can see that, talking about some of the

:12:07.:12:14.

protesters. They are expecting as many as 900,000 people to descend on

:12:15.:12:19.

the US capital today ahead of the inauguration and they are sure to be

:12:20.:12:24.

protesters amongst them. A momentous day. Five o'clock this afternoon UK

:12:25.:12:33.

time. The Daily Mirror has a picture of Donald Trump and all of the other

:12:34.:12:42.

40 fall president -- 44 president of the United States. It says now of

:12:43.:12:48.

the world holds its breath. The Trump salute. It is interesting,

:12:49.:12:54.

many people commenting he is not in the habit of doing a salute at he

:12:55.:13:00.

will be doing quite a bit of that. A couple of gems, say goodbye to the

:13:01.:13:06.

pies and say hello to the cheeseboard. Tottenham's new stadium

:13:07.:13:18.

opens in 2018, some will have USB ports - are they suggesting people

:13:19.:13:24.

will be on their computers while watching the game! Could you go to

:13:25.:13:29.

work with her husband, wife, partner? A cabbie had to pull out.

:13:30.:13:42.

His wife is his caddie. She told him he had to go to the gym. It worked.

:13:43.:13:50.

This is in at the Derby and Westwood. You are watching

:13:51.:14:02.

breakfast. Our main stories in this morning: Donald Trump is to be sworn

:14:03.:14:06.

in as the 45th President with hundreds of thousands of people

:14:07.:14:14.

attending the ceremony expected. Unity and change is what he promised

:14:15.:14:16.

an event last night. -- at. Here's Nick with a look

:14:17.:14:21.

at this morning's weather. Good morning. We start on the other

:14:22.:14:31.

side of the Atlantic, where it's a pretty damp day in Washington, DC.

:14:32.:14:36.

There is a weather system working through, so there will be outbreaks

:14:37.:14:39.

of rain at times. Temperatures around 7-8. Not as cold as it -- as

:14:40.:14:48.

it has been for some. We are starting on a cold note.

:14:49.:14:52.

Temperatures as low as -6 across rural parts of southern England.

:14:53.:14:57.

Much of England, parts of Wales and eastern Scotland getting a frost. In

:14:58.:15:01.

Shetland it is plus nine degrees to start the day. The cloud is making

:15:02.:15:07.

the difference. Cloud, not as cold, but plenty of cloud in northern

:15:08.:15:11.

England, Northern Ireland and southern Scotland. Here is a look at

:15:12.:15:16.

things at eight a.m.. 8-9 degrees in Shetland. Some sunny spells across

:15:17.:15:21.

northern England and northern Scotland to come during the day.

:15:22.:15:26.

Plenty of cloud across southern Scotland, northern England and

:15:27.:15:28.

Northern Ireland. They could produce drizzle. Fog patches from

:15:29.:15:34.

Lincolnshire, through the Midlands and towards the Welsh marshes. This

:15:35.:15:39.

hard frost for some, especially into southern England. At least where you

:15:40.:15:45.

are starting cold there will be good sunshine to come again. A bit of

:15:46.:15:48.

cloud around Cornwall into this afternoon. Parts of north Wales, the

:15:49.:15:53.

north Midlands, southern areas of northern England start cloudy, but

:15:54.:15:57.

get to see some sunshine. Again where we have the cloud we could

:15:58.:16:01.

have some drizzle. It will feel chilly wherever you are, especially

:16:02.:16:06.

across southern England. Into the night more of us get clear skies,

:16:07.:16:10.

meaning more of us will get a frost. You can see the frosty loo

:16:11.:16:16.

developing. Some catchy fog around. Especially through eastern England,

:16:17.:16:20.

so watch out for that. Temperatures will be lower than this in rural

:16:21.:16:24.

spot. Some could get two minus as Saturday begins. It looks like this

:16:25.:16:30.

Saturday will offer a bit more in the way of sunshine after that frost

:16:31.:16:34.

is that across parts of eastern England. Cloud increasing and

:16:35.:16:37.

pushing for the west during the day, towards the Midlands for example.

:16:38.:16:42.

Later in the day it could start to produce patchy light rain and

:16:43.:16:46.

drizzle and it will feel chilly. Temperatures continue to ease a

:16:47.:16:50.

couple of degrees. Into Saturday evening, more cloud pushing into the

:16:51.:16:54.

North Sea, again with outbreaks of rain. Some of it is still around

:16:55.:17:00.

parts of northern England, southern Scotland, maybe showers down to the

:17:01.:17:04.

south-west of the UK on Sunday. If you sunny spells but more cloud

:17:05.:17:08.

around on Sunday. With high pressure in control it is looking quiet, so

:17:09.:17:12.

if you have outdoor plants you are in good shape. -- outdoor plans.

:17:13.:17:16.

Thank you! Throughout this historic week,

:17:17.:17:19.

Breakfast's Jon Kay has been travelling across America,

:17:20.:17:21.

ahead of Donald Trump being sworn in as President

:17:22.:17:24.

of the United States. This week he started in Wisconsin

:17:25.:17:39.

and now he's his final destination of Alabama. In a fantastic location

:17:40.:17:47.

as well. Give us a sense of where you are and the trip you have had

:17:48.:17:49.

this week. Good morning. This is Alabama, the

:17:50.:18:02.

USS warship Alabama on the Gulf of Mexico. The end of Route 45, the end

:18:03.:18:08.

of our journey. We've come here because this is where Donald Trump

:18:09.:18:12.

came, a few weeks ago, the holder of big rally to mark his election

:18:13.:18:15.

victory. His election as president. We thought this would be a good way

:18:16.:18:22.

to stop, to talk to voters and get a sense of what they want now from

:18:23.:18:27.

this guy, this billionaire and reality TV star who this afternoon

:18:28.:18:30.

gets the keys to the White House. The most powerful man on the planet.

:18:31.:18:35.

There was really only one place where we could start.

:18:36.:18:37.

We've arrived. But this is Washington County, Alabama, one of

:18:38.:18:47.

America's poorest states. And on a wet morning, the busiest spot we

:18:48.:18:53.

find... We are open, ladies. Is the local foodbank. These volunteers

:18:54.:18:59.

hand out hundreds of parcels every week. Here you go! To people like

:19:00.:19:05.

Bruce Debelle, a president's name, but he is out of work. -- Roosevelt.

:19:06.:19:11.

He trusts Donald Trump to make it better. I hope he is right about

:19:12.:19:17.

jobs. The thing he can get it going on? I hope so. I believe he can.

:19:18.:19:25.

Katherine and will run the front desk and say some of the poverty

:19:26.:19:30.

around here is heartbreaking. Some of them come here and they don't

:19:31.:19:34.

have toilets in their houses... They believe Donald Trump will invest in

:19:35.:19:38.

this community. He spent a lot of time campaigning here and it worked.

:19:39.:19:42.

He has been out in the community, out in the countryside, and has seen

:19:43.:19:52.

how people need help and he has been there with the money to help and he

:19:53.:19:56.

does. He isn't afraid to go into poverty areas and talk to the

:19:57.:20:01.

people, where most politicians you don't see around unless you've got

:20:02.:20:09.

$1000. It is very tough. Larry will be watching the inauguration later,

:20:10.:20:12.

on the has finished helping out here. He hopes Trump will use his

:20:13.:20:17.

speech today to inspire the nation. I hope he says enough good things

:20:18.:20:21.

that people will give him a chance to do what he said he will do and we

:20:22.:20:26.

will just have to see how it all plays out. Along this section of

:20:27.:20:31.

Route 45, a quarter of the people live in poverty. Many believe Trump

:20:32.:20:37.

can make America great again. I can't believe he won. But not

:20:38.:20:44.

Tyrone. We joined him and his family as the inauguration event began and

:20:45.:20:49.

this former soldier fears Donald Trump will only make the country

:20:50.:20:55.

more divided. He is doing everything he can really do try to make us feel

:20:56.:21:00.

like this is not our America. But this hat will show you I am an

:21:01.:21:03.

American and I fought for this country. And I will never respect

:21:04.:21:14.

him as my president. Never. As you going to be watching the big moment?

:21:15.:21:20.

No. Tyrone's mother says the new president is a bully and she hates

:21:21.:21:24.

his Thai raids on Twitter. I don't like it, I don't trust him. He's

:21:25.:21:29.

talking about making America great, America is already great. I don't

:21:30.:21:33.

like the fact that he downs women. We met so many people this week

:21:34.:21:38.

croaked Trump and anti-Trump but there are also voters like Jeff. It

:21:39.:21:44.

is tough. Really tough. Unemployed and unimpressed, on his porch he

:21:45.:21:50.

told me it doesn't matter who is sitting in the other White House. Do

:21:51.:21:55.

you feel forgotten? Yeah, I do. I really do. Their roads, there

:21:56.:22:03.

bridges. They don't look out for us. Do you think Donald Trump will

:22:04.:22:07.

change that? Will he look after the likes of you? No. You don't think

:22:08.:22:14.

so? No, I do not. Why not? Because the politicians, the governments,

:22:15.:22:19.

they've all got their hands like crabs in a bucket. They are looking

:22:20.:22:24.

out for themselves. After 1000 mild cross in the United States, we

:22:25.:22:29.

reached the end of Route 45. And this divided nation will try to move

:22:30.:22:33.

on and begin its new journey. I will tell you what, during those

:22:34.:22:44.

1000 mild we crossed five states, spoke to thousands of people. Every

:22:45.:22:48.

single person has had a strong opinion and everybody wants to talk

:22:49.:22:52.

to us and express those opinions and tell us what they think about this

:22:53.:22:55.

man, this divisive character Donald Trump. Let's talk a bit more about

:22:56.:23:04.

inauguration. URA professor in Alabama, in politics, and it is

:23:05.:23:08.

always on this date. It is always on the 20th. The amendment of the US

:23:09.:23:15.

constitution. It's a really important occasion, isn't it,

:23:16.:23:19.

because it says so much about America and about the next four

:23:20.:23:25.

years? It is. It is supposed to be a transition of power. It is an

:23:26.:23:30.

important time for peaceful transition of power and usually a

:23:31.:23:35.

chance to unify the country as much as possible after a difficult

:23:36.:23:40.

election. This has been an unusually bitter election. This is an

:23:41.:23:43.

unusually divisive president. This will be some inauguration. How will

:23:44.:23:52.

it different from normal occasions? A lot of people are still trying to

:23:53.:23:56.

find out what he stands for and how hard line he will be, or how

:23:57.:24:02.

conciliatory. I think that will be revealed very quickly in the tone of

:24:03.:24:05.

the speech. It will be looked at closely. This is a man who will be

:24:06.:24:10.

used to communicating in 140 characters and he will have the big

:24:11.:24:14.

stage at a huge occasion. He isn't like Barack Obama. No, he had a very

:24:15.:24:20.

unorthodox style on the campaign trail. A lot of improvisation, a lot

:24:21.:24:27.

of leading the crowd in a back and forth, so he typically tries to do

:24:28.:24:32.

that, which would be very unusual in an inauguration speech. It is

:24:33.:24:38.

usually much more thoughtful. He has already said he wrote the speech

:24:39.:24:42.

himself. I don't know about that. Do you think we will get any clues in

:24:43.:24:46.

that speech today about what kind of president... What he will do? He has

:24:47.:24:54.

been short on detail. Yes, I think it will probably brag about his

:24:55.:24:57.

cabinet nominees, because some of those are still to be installed in

:24:58.:25:02.

the Senate, at least for a little while. So he will talk about that

:25:03.:25:10.

and he will talk about America coming together, I am sure he will

:25:11.:25:14.

say that. Day one, many more to go. You will have a busy time as a

:25:15.:25:18.

political scientist in America. From the USS Alabama, back to you for

:25:19.:25:20.

now. Amazing backdrop you've got there.

:25:21.:25:26.

One of the things that so interesting about this is on the

:25:27.:25:31.

pageantry of the day is over, what will delight and alarm people in

:25:32.:25:35.

equal measure it he says he will be straight onto the of change. He will

:25:36.:25:45.

say that, isn't he -- when he? We should look for those certain

:25:46.:25:49.

phrases that are bound to be said. It is a man who says it is all about

:25:50.:25:53.

change and we've heard that again and again from people along this

:25:54.:25:57.

Route 45. We want change, his supporters say. We want things to be

:25:58.:26:01.

different. We want to shake up Washington. It sounds like he's

:26:02.:26:06.

intending do exactly that, starting at lunchtime today. Thank you.

:26:07.:26:09.

America is Britain's biggest individual trading partner,

:26:10.:26:13.

so what will a Trump Presidency mean for business?

:26:14.:26:16.

Sean is at an American owned business for us this morning.

:26:17.:26:25.

Good morning. The breakfast is just coming along, the bacon. You can

:26:26.:26:36.

smell it. A big, global American chain, the Hyatt hotel. The kind of

:26:37.:26:42.

business that will be affected by a Trump presidency. We will hear from

:26:43.:26:45.

the boss later about what he thinks Donald Trump will be like and from

to give us credit, because they forgot

about a lot of us. "the forgotten man and

more, that I can tell you. # I love this land...# Sing it!

# ..God bless the USA...# Few predicted he would be

:32:33.:32:37.

the 45th president, but the businessman

:32:38.:32:40.

says he has plans. We are going to do things that

:32:41.:32:43.

haven't been done for our country As Trump supporters lined

:32:44.:32:49.

the Lincoln Memorial to cheer, In New York, thousands

:32:50.:32:58.

marched to the Trump Hotel, with a message

:32:59.:33:04.

for the new commander-in-chief. We are all rooting for

:33:05.:33:06.

the new administration, of course, to abandon the divisive,

:33:07.:33:08.

racist, misogynistic, and lead us with intelligence

:33:09.:33:13.

and compassion. Donald Trump may be

:33:14.:33:23.

toasting his victory he knows he has won the hearts

others are missing. Four earthquakes above magnitude

of cancer in men in the UK and is normally confirmed

Dozens of people have been running through the streets of a Spanish

town throwing turnips at a beast-like figure

:36:09.:36:10.

The origins of the festival are uncertain but there is a general

:36:11.:36:14.

understanding that a thief was once hounded out of the village

:36:15.:36:17.

This year, some 20 tonnes of turnips were used.

:36:18.:36:29.

That looks really bad. It really does look painful. A tomato, a bit

:36:30.:36:41.

of fun and painless. Do not try that at home. They are wearing a lot of

:36:42.:36:50.

protective armour. Let's stick to the tomatoes. News from the

midfielder Marten de Roon, as part of his school literacy

:40:23.:40:29.

project, he couldn't have imagined, the response he would

:40:30.:40:31.

get from the Dutchman. The other day I got a letter from

:40:32.:40:43.

Henry and he told me I was his idol and told me a few nice things so as

:40:44.:40:48.

a surprise I am going to go to his own and give him a shirt from

:40:49.:40:52.

Middlesbrough with my name on the back. Hello. Who is this? Are you

:40:53.:41:03.

Henry. Delighted. Thank you for the latter.

:41:04.:41:09.

Just have a look at the latter. Beautifully written and we can tell

:41:10.:41:16.

you what he actually says as well. Brilliant handwriting. I want to

:41:17.:41:25.

grow up like you. Me too. You are the best player in the entire world

:41:26.:41:30.

and I wish I could meet you. And he is playing a team that has not lost

:41:31.:41:37.

all season. Look at him, sleeping in his shirt after his idol stayed for

:41:38.:41:42.

an hour. It makes a big difference. That will be him happy for life. Can

:41:43.:41:50.

you imagine in his wildest dreams. And the power of a letter. It is a

:41:51.:41:57.

very personal. It is hard to do. My handwriting is terrible. The time is

:41:58.:42:02.

now 6:41 a.m.. The deep snow is making it difficult

:42:03.:42:03.

for rescuers to reach up to 35 people trapped

:42:04.:42:06.

in a remote hotel in Italy. It was engulfed by an avalanche

:42:07.:42:09.

on Wednesday evening following multiple

:42:10.:42:12.

earthquakes in the region. from Manchester's School of Earth

:42:13.:42:14.

and Environmental Sciences. Good morning and thank you for your

:42:15.:42:27.

time. Huge concerns over the people unaccounted for in the hotel and we

:42:28.:42:31.

await news on that. The operation is still under way. You know this area

:42:32.:42:37.

well, tell us about where the hotel is and the geography around it? The

:42:38.:42:47.

hotel is quite isolated because it is uphill from a village, connected

:42:48.:42:56.

by a narrow road. It is a beautiful area. With peaks of about 3000 metre

:42:57.:43:04.

high. Basically there is a pretty steep slope from about 2000 metres.

:43:05.:43:11.

This is where the avalanche passed through. The huge kinetic energy

:43:12.:43:19.

because it was probably drifting at 300 kilometres per hour. You are

:43:20.:43:24.

talking about the speed of the avalanche as it would have hit the

:43:25.:43:29.

hotel. Because of the shape of this valley. It is a huge energy

:43:30.:43:37.

dissipated on this small hill, basically blasted. The conditions

:43:38.:43:43.

would be really tough for rescuing people. We saw pictures yesterday of

:43:44.:43:49.

the snow and treacherous conditions. Yes. There has been huge snow in the

:43:50.:43:58.

last ten days in Italy in that area. Two metres of snow in about steam

:43:59.:44:05.

power is sick and imagine all these snow. That place was open to trucks.

:44:06.:44:17.

People were going there for a nice time. But because of the shaky

:44:18.:44:25.

related to the earthquake, it triggered a landslide and also

:44:26.:44:32.

avalanches. He described the hotel and the landscape, that build up of

:44:33.:44:37.

snow, put those together with a serious Tremor, was it almost

:44:38.:44:42.

inevitable that something would happen? Earthquakes usually trigger

:44:43.:44:50.

landslides. Then, if you have an environment like this with all these

:44:51.:44:55.

snow, they can trigger snow slides. Saying it is inevitable, now there

:44:56.:45:04.

is... People want to understand who is responsible because maybe people

:45:05.:45:11.

should not be there. There a question marks about whether you

:45:12.:45:15.

should have buildings in a place like that? People protect themselves

:45:16.:45:23.

by building hotels out, fire from where the avalanches can pass so

:45:24.:45:29.

this is a combination. It is not surprising to have a lot of snow in

:45:30.:45:35.

this area, we have huge snows in the Apple lines because of the way of

:45:36.:45:46.

the Italian climate. As you say, this is a region susceptible to a

:45:47.:45:49.

earthquakes. Catastrophic ones. What kind of preparation and is there any

:45:50.:45:54.

way to protect and prepare yourself? The way to protect yourself from

:45:55.:46:00.

earthquakes is to build in an intelligible way. At the moment, our

:46:01.:46:06.

knowledge is that we cannot predict earthquakes like we can do for

:46:07.:46:11.

whether so we know where they hit in Europe, especially in Italy we know

:46:12.:46:19.

very well but when and the magnitude is impossible. That is the big

:46:20.:46:26.

question. To tell you the truth, it is almost not so important if you

:46:27.:46:32.

build buildings that are resilient to earthquakes and this is possible

:46:33.:46:37.

to do. Thank you very much for your time.

:46:38.:46:39.

Here's Nick with a look at this morning's weather.

:46:40.:46:44.

Starting on the other side of the Atlantic, where it's a big day.

:46:45.:46:52.

Washington, DC, the inauguration. Previous presidents have sometimes

:46:53.:46:56.

faced very cold weather. We have a rainy weather system working through

:46:57.:47:00.

the day, so it won't be cold. 7-8 Celsius. But it will be wet. Here,

:47:01.:47:06.

some of us will get to see some sunshine. But where you are clear

:47:07.:47:10.

overnight it's a bitterly cold start to the day and there is a hard

:47:11.:47:15.

frost, especially across the rural parts of southern and eastern

:47:16.:47:18.

England and in the eastern Scotland. Parts of Aberdeenshire down to minus

:47:19.:47:23.

four. But where you've got this weather front, plenty of cloud. Much

:47:24.:47:28.

of northern England, Northern Ireland and southern Scotland into

:47:29.:47:33.

the central belt and Shetland, plus nine Celsius. So there will be some

:47:34.:47:37.

sunny spells across northern Scotland. A couple of patches of fog

:47:38.:47:42.

to start the day. Then we move into Belfast and much of northern England

:47:43.:47:46.

with the cloud. Some fog patches for Lincolnshire, the Midlands, the

:47:47.:47:51.

Welsh marshes. Be aware of that on your early journey and allow extra

:47:52.:47:55.

time to scrape the ice off the car for much of England, to the south of

:47:56.:47:58.

northern England, and into the Channel Isles. But where it is cold

:47:59.:48:05.

and frosty there will be sunshine to follow. Where we start with cloud in

:48:06.:48:09.

north Wales, the north Midlands, here you should eventually see

:48:10.:48:11.

sunshine. Northern Ireland brightening up as well. So actually

:48:12.:48:18.

today more sunshine after the recent days. Away from the zone it may

:48:19.:48:23.

produce a bit of patchy drizzle. Temperatures about 5-7 Celsius. So

:48:24.:48:29.

there is a chill, especially in the breeze. Cloud into Cornwall as well.

:48:30.:48:36.

Overnight plenty of clear skies. A hard frost in places. Patchy fog

:48:37.:48:43.

developing in eastern England into Saturday morning and this

:48:44.:48:46.

temperatures will be lower in rural spots. That takes us into the start

:48:47.:48:50.

of the weekend. It will be cold and frosty for many to start the

:48:51.:48:54.

weekend. Patchy fog around. Then sunshine. Northern Ireland and

:48:55.:48:59.

north-west England for a time. We've got cloud that will push in from the

:49:00.:49:04.

North Sea and that will turn things increasingly cloudy for much of

:49:05.:49:07.

eastern and central England into Saturday afternoon. Through Saturday

:49:08.:49:10.

evening and overnight it will produce outbreaks of rain or drizzle

:49:11.:49:13.

in places. Perhaps wintry over higher ground, although not

:49:14.:49:18.

amounting to much. Frost not as widespread as Sunday begins. Patchy

:49:19.:49:23.

rain for northern England, southern Scotland, maybe a few showers

:49:24.:49:27.

towards the south-west of the UK. Temperatures still rooted into

:49:28.:49:32.

single figures, mid single for years. So actually weekend but

:49:33.:49:33.

plenty of dry weather to come. He's about to take up office

:49:34.:49:37.

as the leader of the United States. But how much do we really

:49:38.:49:43.

know about Donald Trump? Breakfast's Jayne McCubbin looks

:49:44.:49:48.

at things you might not have known about the businessman

:49:49.:49:50.

turned President. Who is this man called Trump? It is

:49:51.:50:03.

T for Trump, but his ancestral name is part of German and part gold

:50:04.:50:08.

opportunist, part migrant mother. Great to be back in Scotland. R is

:50:09.:50:17.

for real estate, the New York real estate as he was born into. What

:50:18.:50:21.

began with a $1 million loan from dad turned into a ?3 billion empire.

:50:22.:50:27.

Not without incident. Four of his firms have filed for bankruptcy. U

:50:28.:50:34.

is for unique. Trump truly is. At 70 he will be the oldest ever

:50:35.:50:38.

president, the first not to disclose his tax records and has never held

:50:39.:50:42.

elected office before. And it seems the first not to take a pet into the

:50:43.:50:48.

White House. Mis for the man. Just what shaped in? Military school at

:50:49.:50:53.

13 to straighten out bad behaviour, say some, and money, lots of money.

:50:54.:50:58.

A man who can buy anything can do anything. He claims he has never

:50:59.:51:06.

smoked, never drank and never done anything mentioned in any leaked

:51:07.:51:09.

reports. Does anyone really believe that story? I am also very much of a

:51:10.:51:16.

German folk, either way. -- germaphobe. Which brings us to P for

:51:17.:51:23.

politics. The Simpsons first called it, the same time Trump first had

:51:24.:51:27.

his stab at the Reform Party. The man who once tried to trademark this

:51:28.:51:32.

phrase, you're Fayette, actually stall this one. We will make America

:51:33.:51:38.

great again! That belonged to Ronald Reagan's campaign trail. -- you're

:51:39.:51:44.

Fayed. But this is what brings into Washington today and this is the

:51:45.:51:48.

pledge upon which he will soon be drudge -- judged.

:51:49.:51:49.

Carry -- carrying on now with the theme of Donald Trump.

:51:50.:52:01.

Sean is at an American-owned company in Birmingham.

:52:02.:52:04.

What is so interesting at this point in time, this is a businessman who

:52:05.:52:12.

will be president. He isn't a career politician. There is a completely

:52:13.:52:15.

different feel to what might happen next. And are they going to be good

:52:16.:52:21.

for businesses in America, or will it be business is based in Britain

:52:22.:52:25.

as well? At this big local American hotel chain, the Hyatt Hotel. They

:52:26.:52:29.

employ hundreds of thousands around the world, more than 1000 here, and

:52:30.:52:35.

we caught up with the boss to find out what he thought Trump presidency

:52:36.:52:39.

might mean for his business. The inauguration of the president today

:52:40.:52:42.

and the clarity that we got on Brexit earlier on in the week goes

:52:43.:52:46.

towards giving that certainty that the investors have been looking for.

:52:47.:52:53.

Hyatt hotels are the most famous for business travellers. Britain is a

:52:54.:52:58.

thriving business community today and we believe will remain so going

:52:59.:53:01.

forward into the future. Therefore we will continue to invest in

:53:02.:53:03.

Britain. Back at the breakfast table, this is

:53:04.:53:12.

the place to be, where everyone is tucking in. Big issues for

:53:13.:53:14.

businesses, whether British or American. Andrew, you run a big

:53:15.:53:20.

software company, the third biggest in the UK, but you are owned by an

:53:21.:53:24.

American business. What do they think they Trump presidency will

:53:25.:53:29.

mean? Owl investors focus very much on technology businesses and they

:53:30.:53:35.

see technology as solutions, when we have challenging economic times. So

:53:36.:53:38.

we are very confident about the future for our business and our

:53:39.:53:42.

sector. Has Donald Trump got anything to do with that? I think

:53:43.:53:46.

you can create good business conditions for us, but we see a lot

:53:47.:53:51.

of the control of our sector in our hands, so we are positive. You've

:53:52.:53:54.

got huge clients in the UK, like the NHS. Other big businesses that rely

:53:55.:54:01.

on a strong economy. What do you think Donald Trump will do for the

:54:02.:54:05.

economy? I think he is quite business focused, so hopefully he

:54:06.:54:08.

will continue with policies which help businesses be successful. But

:54:09.:54:15.

as I say, businesses always looked the technology to solve those

:54:16.:54:17.

problems and make them more efficient, so we think that

:54:18.:54:22.

something he will help them with. You advance a lot of businesses --

:54:23.:54:26.

advise a lot of businesses about how to grow. You have heard a lot about

:54:27.:54:31.

America from Trump. What chance has British business got? I think

:54:32.:54:35.

British businesses have a huge opportunity in America, but they

:54:36.:54:40.

can't just wait and see what he will do. It will take some time. He's got

:54:41.:54:45.

four years. You can't just sit and hope it will all go your way, the

:54:46.:54:50.

just have to get on with it and embed yourself in the US market. You

:54:51.:54:54.

need to create an office there, find partners and just actually be there,

:54:55.:54:59.

immerse yourself in the culture and build a business. You can't wait for

:55:00.:55:03.

him to tell you what to do. At any overall trade deal, if America is

:55:04.:55:07.

going to come first, that means Britain won't get as good a deal?

:55:08.:55:13.

Not necessarily. If you look at a local player, cause you have

:55:14.:55:18.

partnerships in America, you have jobs created in America, you won't

:55:19.:55:23.

be in any way disadvantaged because you are already there and in the

:55:24.:55:27.

place, you aren't transacting from a huge distance. So the trick is how

:55:28.:55:32.

you grow their and you could grow by buying an American company, you can

:55:33.:55:37.

bring your own staff, so you can't just wait and let it happen. 20 of

:55:38.:55:41.

things you can do. There you go, lots of things for British business

:55:42.:55:45.

to think about. This morning we will talk about all of the money Trump

:55:46.:55:49.

plans to spend on the economy and what British businesses can do in a

:55:50.:55:58.

detail to get into America. Throughout the morning we will of

:55:59.:56:02.

course give you the guide as to how things will be played out today.

:56:03.:56:07.

5pm, UK time, is the time of the inauguration. A lot of events

:56:08.:56:10.

building up to that. We will give you the full guide today.

Let's go back to our main story this morning. This is the live shot from

:07:51.:08:12.

Capitol Hill. It is no exaggeration to say the eyes of the world will be

:08:13.:08:16.

on that location at five o'clock when Donald Trump, the businessman

:08:17.:08:24.

turned politician will become the 45th president of the United States.

:08:25.:08:29.

It is set to say very few would have predicted Donald Trump becoming

:08:30.:08:32.

president of the United States and the unofficial title of leader of

:08:33.:08:39.

the free world. We speak to Laura Bicker. John Kay is in Alabama. A

:08:40.:08:47.

very good morning. This is the day so much has been said. The election

:08:48.:08:53.

battle, so much vitriol and passion but today is the day the USA will

:08:54.:08:59.

have a new president. Talk us through the sequence of events and

:09:00.:09:04.

if there is a mood of the nation, what it might be the day. Today is

:09:05.:09:09.

about political choreography. It starts with tea in the morning. He

:09:10.:09:19.

will wake up and the pair will have tea with the Obama is and then both

:09:20.:09:24.

couples will leave for the steps of the Capitol. Donald Trump will put

:09:25.:09:29.

his hands on two bibles - one of which he has had since being a child

:09:30.:09:39.

- 35 words, the oath of office will be spoken. He'll then address the

:09:40.:09:45.

crowd. There will be a parade were he will get to see all of those who

:09:46.:09:50.

came to see him. Hundreds of thousands gathering in support but

:09:51.:09:56.

also many protesters. 2008 thousands security guards gathered at Gate

:09:57.:10:08.

right across the ball. -- the area. John Kay has been travelling down

:10:09.:10:12.

the middle of America on Route 40 five. He will be the 40 feet

:10:13.:10:18.

president, Donald Trump, and if you have been taking the mood of the

:10:19.:10:25.

nation. This is a huge day. How do you think the nation is feeling

:10:26.:10:32.

given the people you have spoken to? I think it is so divided. We have

:10:33.:10:37.

spoken to dozens of people here on Breakfast and so many people have

:10:38.:10:42.

been happy to talk to us. Nobody has refused. Everybody has had opinions.

:10:43.:10:50.

Very few people in between and that explains the use that kind of

:10:51.:10:55.

divided nation hit in Harrods and what he will have to do. -- inherit.

:10:56.:11:02.

We have travelled through five states and at the end of Route 45

:11:03.:11:10.

you get to my bill, Alabama, on the USS Alabama, these old warship, is

:11:11.:11:17.

now a floating museum and it says power, might and supremacy and that

:11:18.:11:22.

is what we expect to see in Washington today. Look at this.

:11:23.:11:27.

But this is Washington County, Alabama, one of America's poorest

:11:28.:11:31.

And on a wet morning, the busiest spot we find...

:11:32.:11:37.

These volunteers hand out hundreds of parcels every week.

:11:38.:11:48.

To people like Roosevelt - a president's name, but he's

:11:49.:11:51.

He trusts Donald Trump to make it better.

:11:52.:11:57.

These two run the front desk and say some of the poverty around

:11:58.:12:13.

Some of them come here and they don't have toilets

:12:14.:12:17.

They believe Donald Trump will invest in this community.

:12:18.:12:23.

He spent a lot of time campaigning here and it worked.

:12:24.:12:26.

He has been out in the community, out in the countryside,

:12:27.:12:30.

and has seen how people need help and he has been there with the money

:12:31.:12:36.

He isn't afraid to go into poverty areas and talk to the people,

:12:37.:12:46.

where most politicians you don't see around unless you've got $1000.

:12:47.:12:51.

Larry will be watching the inauguration later,

:12:52.:12:56.

He hopes Trump will use his speech today to inspire the nation.

:12:57.:13:04.

I hope he says enough good things that people will give him a chance

:13:05.:13:08.

to do what he said he will do and we will just have to see how it

:13:09.:13:12.

Along this section of Route 45, a quarter of the people

:13:13.:13:18.

Many believe Trump can make America great again.

:13:19.:13:24.

We joined him and his family as the inauguration event began

:13:25.:13:33.

and this former soldier fears Donald Trump will only make

:13:34.:13:36.

He is doing everything he can really to try to make us feel like this

:13:37.:13:44.

But this hat will show you I am an American and I fought

:13:45.:13:49.

And I will never respect him as my president.

:13:50.:13:56.

Are you going to be watching the big moment?

:13:57.:14:03.

Tyrone's mother says the new president is a bully

:14:04.:14:07.

and she hates his tirades on Twitter.

:14:08.:14:10.

He's talking about making America great, America's already great.

:14:11.:14:16.

I don't like the fact that he downs women.

:14:17.:14:19.

We met so many people this week, pro-Trump and anti-Trump,

:14:20.:14:24.

Unemployed and unimpressed, on his porch he told me it doesn't

:14:25.:14:36.

matter who is sitting in the 'other' White House.

:14:37.:14:39.

Yeah, I do. I really do.

:14:40.:14:45.

Bare roads, bare bridges. They don't look out for us.

:14:46.:14:50.

Do you think Donald Trump will change that?

:14:51.:14:52.

Will he look after the likes of you? No.

:14:53.:14:55.

You don't think so? No, I do not.

:14:56.:14:59.

Because the politicians, the governments, they've

:15:00.:15:03.

all got their hands like crabs in a bucket.

:15:04.:15:06.

After 1,000 miles crossing the United States, we reach the end

:15:07.:15:12.

And this divided nation will try to move on and begin

:15:13.:15:16.

My bill is a good place to come. Donald Trump held a rally here to

:15:17.:15:41.

thank supporters in places like this. We wanted to talk to them and

:15:42.:15:49.

their critics. Let's speak to one of his supporters.

:15:50.:15:53.

Thanks for joining us. You are a Trump fan and you seen by key the

:15:54.:16:02.

effect it can have on the public. Tell us about that. I wasn't

:16:03.:16:06.

originally, but it came down to where Trump was the only choice. And

:16:07.:16:10.

he has had an amazing effect on people. Like the rally tonight. In

:16:11.:16:17.

the drop of a hat he had many people gathering in the stadium who were

:16:18.:16:21.

big fans. They have not only watched him on television for several years

:16:22.:16:26.

but they also watched him on the news programme. That recognition

:16:27.:16:31.

factor? That's right. There is a tremendous Trump brand. Hotels

:16:32.:16:36.

everywhere. It is a wonderful study of how he rounded himself. What

:16:37.:16:42.

about his character? We've seen the comments about women, comments about

:16:43.:16:48.

Muslims, about the wall. Are you comfortable with all of that as a

:16:49.:16:52.

member of his party and a supporter? I know it seems odd. I've watched

:16:53.:16:57.

European television and you get a very different view of our president

:16:58.:17:01.

than you do if you are on American television. Even American television

:17:02.:17:05.

is critical of him. I don't see those things as defining moment of

:17:06.:17:10.

who we years. If you consider the alternative, he was the best choice.

:17:11.:17:16.

-- of who he is. At Howdy you defend those comments he has made? I'm not

:17:17.:17:21.

pleased with them either. It depends on who -- what exactly you are

:17:22.:17:28.

speaking of. The comments on women. 30 years ago and stuff. I didn't

:17:29.:17:33.

like those in a lot of my colleagues drop support as a result. How does

:17:34.:17:37.

he live on? Today he puts his hand on the Bible and swears himself in.

:17:38.:17:44.

How does he bring the people together? People have hope that

:17:45.:17:51.

something will change and it isn't a reality in the UK, but here it has

:17:52.:17:58.

been economic stagnation, federal overreach and we really want to get

:17:59.:18:02.

back to another way of life than we had before. I don't think we ever

:18:03.:18:06.

can really, but he has a vision to take us forward and he communicates

:18:07.:18:10.

it in a really unique way stop white interesting times. Indeed it is. .

:18:11.:18:17.

Thank your for joining us hear from Reveal, Alabama. -- Mobile. A

:18:18.:18:31.

reminder, live coverage is from 3pm on BBC News and the inauguration

:18:32.:18:39.

takes place at 5pm this afternoon. Some people will be wondering what

:18:40.:18:40.

the weather will be like. Here's Nick with a look

:18:41.:18:43.

at this morning's weather. Good morning. Some of us were

:18:44.:18:51.

expecting sparkling sunshine, but that won't be the case in

:18:52.:18:58.

Washington. It will be rainy, but it won't be called, about 7-8. Let's

:18:59.:19:03.

have a look at how we are starting our day. A hard frost. Of us,

:19:04.:19:08.

especially in rural parts of southern England, east of Scotland

:19:09.:19:13.

and Wales. -- for some of us. Eight Celsius to start the day. Posted

:19:14.:19:18.

weather front we have cloud keeping you frost free. That cloud will hang

:19:19.:19:23.

around again today for much of northern England, Northern Ireland

:19:24.:19:26.

and in the southern Scotland. To the south of that we expect plenty of

:19:27.:19:30.

sunshine. A frosty start into the Channel Islands. There are some fog

:19:31.:19:35.

patches around. Some of them may linger if you more hours,

:19:36.:19:39.

Lincolnshire, the Midlands, towards the Welsh Marches. We could

:19:40.:19:43.

encounter some patchy drizzle in northern England. In the northern

:19:44.:19:46.

Ireland and southern Scotland, your temperatures are well above

:19:47.:19:49.

freezing. Racking the northern Scotland, some of us have that

:19:50.:19:55.

frost. -- back in the northern Scotland. Through the day some of us

:19:56.:19:59.

will brighten up. The northern Midlands, southern parts of north

:20:00.:20:05.

England as well. Under the cloud, that's it for your day. Elsewhere,

:20:06.:20:11.

good sunshine coming through. Cloud towards the far south-west of

:20:12.:20:16.

England. Temperatures on the chilly side, especially in the breeze. Some

:20:17.:20:22.

noticeable easterly breeze is. With clearer skies overnight more of us

:20:23.:20:26.

will get a frost. More of us tomorrow morning scraping the ice

:20:27.:20:30.

and fog patches, especially through eastern parts of England into

:20:31.:20:33.

Saturday morning. Rural temperatures are lower than this. -5 or -6 to

:20:34.:20:40.

start the day on Saturday. Into the weekend, it is all looking rather

:20:41.:20:45.

quiet for the weekend. Good sunny spells around on Saturday. But look

:20:46.:20:51.

at this cloud pushing in, in eastern England, eventually the as well. By

:20:52.:20:56.

the end of the day you could be seeing some patchy light rain or

:20:57.:20:59.

drizzle and it could be wintry over the hills. Not as much frost around

:21:00.:21:04.

as we go through Saturday night. On Sunday, more cloud around and maybe

:21:05.:21:08.

a few showers. It is looking quiet this weekend, but it will be chilly.

:21:09.:21:15.

Worth wrapping up, but it will be chilly. Thank you.

:21:16.:21:18.

The announcement by Martin McGuinness that he is retiring

:21:19.:21:21.

from politics came as a big surprise to many.

:21:22.:21:23.

Sinn Fein say they will announce his successor as leader

:21:24.:21:26.

The former BBC correspondent Denis Murray,

:21:27.:21:31.

who has known him for more than 30 years, says Mr McGuinness he has

:21:32.:21:35.

He joins us now from our Belfast newsroom.

:21:36.:21:39.

Thank you very much for your time this morning. We will talk about

:21:40.:21:45.

Martin McGuinness personally in a moment. First of all, the

:21:46.:21:50.

announcement from Sinn Fein that they will make the announcement of a

:21:51.:21:54.

successor next week. With this in some context. How important is it

:21:55.:21:59.

for Sinn Fein at this point in time? It is obviously central to them. I

:22:00.:22:04.

think nobody knew until Martin McGuinness did his interviews that

:22:05.:22:09.

he had been planning to retire in May anyway, which would have been

:22:10.:22:12.

the 10th anniversary of him becoming Deputy First Minister. So it isn't

:22:13.:22:18.

as if it's a bolt from the blue to Sinn Fein. He has been talking about

:22:19.:22:23.

in transition and that Gerry Adams will eventually step down as leader

:22:24.:22:27.

of the party as well. But he has been an absolute giant for Sinn Fein

:22:28.:22:31.

for those 30 years. And whoever takes over from him will have a very

:22:32.:22:35.

big set of shoes to fill, because of the stature he has, not just within

:22:36.:22:40.

the party but within the whole peace process. Take us back. You've known

:22:41.:22:48.

him for a very long time, the time and place where was very different.

:22:49.:22:53.

Chart four as a bit of that journey that he has been through. When Sinn

:22:54.:23:00.

Fein first became a political presence, it was putting forward

:23:01.:23:03.

candidates for interview more readily than they had, which was

:23:04.:23:07.

really back in the 1980s. The main spokespeople would have been Gerry

:23:08.:23:13.

Adams and Martin McGuinness. Sinn Fein regarded the BBC almost as an

:23:14.:23:16.

arm of the British government then. There could be quite cruel and

:23:17.:23:20.

formal with you. But with Martin McGuinness over the years,

:23:21.:23:24.

especially after his experiences in government, once he had been a

:23:25.:23:29.

minister and then the Deputy First Minister he became much more

:23:30.:23:32.

engaging and friendly as a personality. His personality I think

:23:33.:23:37.

was one of the reasons that he became Sinn Fein's chief negotiator,

:23:38.:23:42.

not Gerry Adams. Gerry Adams was very much the leader of Sinn Fein.

:23:43.:23:46.

But I think people felt they could do better business with Martin

:23:47.:23:50.

McGuinness and obviously his personality was a factor in that.

:23:51.:23:56.

But, I mean, his path, even in the early 1980s, nobody was in any doubt

:23:57.:24:00.

about who Martin McGuinness was. What you were looking at was not the

:24:01.:24:05.

shadow of a man, it was the real thing. It was partly because he had

:24:06.:24:12.

this reputation of being such a hard man. He was such a good negotiator

:24:13.:24:16.

and I am convinced that the Sinn Fein leadership, nobody has argued

:24:17.:24:22.

about this with me from Sinn Fein yet, but don't think their

:24:23.:24:27.

leadership could have their grassroots, the IRA members and Sinn

:24:28.:24:31.

Fein members, they could not have brought them through ceasefires,

:24:32.:24:34.

decommissioning of weapons, taking their seats in what they regarded as

:24:35.:24:40.

partition as the assemblies of the -- Northern Ireland assembly,

:24:41.:24:43.

without Martin McGuinness, it was he represented that militaristic side

:24:44.:24:49.

of Sinn Fein. If he said it was a good idea to go through politics, it

:24:50.:24:53.

was a good idea. That you very much for your time this morning. That was

:24:54.:25:01.

a former BBC Ireland correspondent. A big day for Donald Trump, the

:25:02.:25:06.

inauguration of becoming president of the United States. What will it

:25:07.:25:12.

mean for British businesses? Sean is finding out. Good morning.

:25:13.:25:16.

I didn't quite make it to Trump Tower, but I am at a Hyatt hotel. A

:25:17.:25:23.

big chain, employing 100,000 people, more than 1000 people in the UK.

:25:24.:25:27.

Over the morning we will hear from its boss, from British businesses

:25:28.:25:31.

who trade with the US, to just find out how much a Donald Trump

:25:32.:25:35.

presidency will affect the British economy and the global economy.

:25:36.:25:39.

First, the news, with Steph McGovern

:25:40.:28:57.

and Charlie Stayt. He's just hours away

:28:58.:29:15.

from the world's most powerful job. Donald Trump will be sworn

:29:16.:29:18.

in as the 45th President of the United States,

:29:19.:29:21.

signalling the most radical change in the US government

:29:22.:29:23.

in modern times. His inauguration takes place at 5

:29:24.:29:25.

o'clock this afternoon UK time. Throughout the morning on Breakfast,

:29:26.:29:28.

we'll be speaking to people who know the President-elect,

:29:29.:29:31.

and hearing the thoughts Last night, in the shadow

:29:32.:29:33.

of the Lincoln Memorial, the billionaire businessman,

:29:34.:29:36.

turned politician, told the crowd that he will unify the country

:29:37.:29:38.

and give a voice to people it is a movement that started and it

:29:39.:29:54.

is a movement like we have never seen anywhere in the world, they

:29:55.:30:00.

say, there has never been a movement like these and it is something very,

:30:01.:30:05.

very special and we are going to unify our country and our phrase,

:30:06.:30:12.

you all know it, half of you are wearing that hat, make America a

:30:13.:30:17.

great again... CHEERING AND APPLAUSE. But we are going to make

:30:18.:30:25.

America great for all of our people. Everybody. Donald Trump speaking at

:30:26.:30:30.

his final rally. Donald Trump has chosen

:30:31.:30:33.

Woody Johnson, the billionaire owner

:30:34.:30:34.

of the New York Jets football team to be the new US

:30:35.:30:37.

ambassador to the UK. No formal announcement has been made

:30:38.:30:39.

but Mr Trump revealed his plan Mr Johnson has known the President

:30:40.:30:43.

elect for many years, and is a long time

:30:44.:30:50.

Republican fundraiser. We can expect a lot of announcements

:30:51.:31:02.

in the coming days and years. This is the scene live on Capitol Hill.

:31:03.:31:10.

Donald Trump becoming the 45th President of the United States. He

:31:11.:31:15.

will be getting the keys to the White House. Coverage on the news

:31:16.:31:27.

channel from three this afternoon and from four o'clock on BBC One.

:31:28.:31:31.

Certainly a momentous day. Rescuers in Italy have

:31:32.:31:34.

worked through the night, in the hope of finding more

:31:35.:31:37.

survivors from an avalanche struck and as many as 35

:31:38.:31:40.

others are missing. Four earthquakes above magnitude

:31:41.:31:45.

five rocked central Italy two days ago, with tremors

:31:46.:31:47.

continuing into the night. A man has driven a car

:31:48.:31:52.

into pedestrians in the centre of the Australian city of Melbourne,

:31:53.:31:55.

killing three people. At least 25 people

:31:56.:31:57.

are being treated in hospital. Police said the incident

:31:58.:32:00.

wasn't terror-related and was connected to a stabbing

:32:01.:32:01.

in another part of the city earlier A group of British doctors say

:32:02.:32:05.

they've transformed the diagnosis of prostate cancer

:32:06.:32:11.

by using MRI scans. It's the most common type

:32:12.:32:15.

of cancer in men in the UK and is normally confirmed

:32:16.:32:18.

with an invasive biopsy. Researchers believe advanced MRI's

:32:19.:32:22.

could reduce the number of men who need biopsies, which can lead

:32:23.:32:26.

to severe side-effects. The search for a company to design,

:32:27.:32:42.

build and maintain high speed trains Up to 60 trains, capable of speeds

:32:43.:32:45.

of about 225mph, are needed. The contract, which is worth almost

:32:46.:32:49.

three billion pounds will be Transport Secretary Chris Grayling

:32:50.:32:52.

says it a major step towards Britain This story on the maul bizarre

:32:53.:32:56.

end... Vegetable throwing. Dozens of people have been running

:32:57.:33:07.

through the streets of a Spanish town throwing turnips

:33:08.:33:10.

at a beast-like figure Look at it, the figure represents

:33:11.:33:31.

the farmer said. -- farm beef. I have not seen that one before. We

:33:32.:33:38.

have all seen that tomato one but that looks really mean. 20 towns of

:33:39.:33:46.

turnips. Can you imagine? A bit one-sided. He probably has a lot of

:33:47.:33:56.

padding. He has armour. This time yesterday, we were really from the

:33:57.:34:02.

news of Novak Djokovic out. It really opens up the way for Andy

:34:03.:34:09.

Murray and helps him strengthen his position as world number one,

:34:10.:34:17.

hopefully fall six months. Dan Evans had to get his shirt from a local

:34:18.:34:22.

supermarket. How the other half lives.

:34:23.:34:26.

Andy Murray is through to the fourth round at the Australian Open..

:34:27.:34:30.

It was as routine as victories go for the World Number

:34:31.:34:33.

One - beating American Sam Querrey in straight sets.

:34:34.:34:35.

The 31st seed had little answer, to Murray's all round game.

:34:36.:34:38.

Next up for the Scot - Germany's Misha Zverev

:34:39.:34:41.

He's currently on court against Bernand Tomic -

:34:42.:34:44.

the only Australian left in the singles draw.

:34:45.:34:47.

Evans broke in the very first game of the match and has held

:34:48.:34:50.

It's currently 4-3 in the first set.

:34:51.:34:55.

England's cricketers have lost the one-day series against India.

:34:56.:34:57.

The hosts reached 381-6, which is the third-highest total

:34:58.:35:00.

thanks to brilliant centuries from Yuvraj Singh, and MS Dhoni.

:35:01.:35:06.

England captain Eoin Morgan, also reached his hundred,

:35:07.:35:08.

England fell 15 runs short, and it means India go two up

:35:09.:35:13.

We did not produce our best performance or anywhere

:35:14.:35:20.

near our best performance with the ball - this game

:35:21.:35:22.

and the last - which is disappointing.

:35:23.:35:25.

Um, so yeah, and then chasing 380, you know we have an incredible

:35:26.:35:30.

amount of belief in the changeroom, and we believed that we could chase

:35:31.:35:34.

it down and again, we were not far-off but I didn't think

:35:35.:35:37.

Sale have terminated the contract of their wing Tom Arscott,

:35:38.:35:43.

after claiming that he passed on team information,

:35:44.:35:45.

and tactics to his brother, Luke, who's a Bristol player,

:35:46.:35:48.

on the eve of their match on New Year's Day.

:35:49.:35:51.

Bristol, who won the match, say the brothers did meet,

:35:52.:35:54.

but that nothing of any sporting value was passed on.

:35:55.:35:57.

Tom, seen here kicking, was suspended a few days later

:35:58.:35:59.

by Sale and sacked after an internal disciplinary

The RFU, are conducting a separate investigation.

The defending champion Ronnie O'Sullivan is through to

:36:10.:36:11.

the semi-finals of the Masters Snooker at the Alexandra Palace

:36:12.:36:14.

His match against Neil Robertson was the pick of the quarter-finals

:36:15.:36:19.

but he needed a lot of luck and a couple of flukes

:36:20.:36:22.

In an error-strewn match he eventually came through though,

:36:23.:36:26.

Even if the crowd were horrified. To say the least.

:36:27.:36:45.

O'Sullivan will face Marco Fu in that semi-final on Saturday

:36:46.:36:47.

after he came through with a much more straightforward victory over

:36:48.:36:50.

Fu made the highest break of the tournament so far -

:36:51.:36:54.

a 140 - as he won by six frames to two.

:36:55.:36:57.

He has been on his own without a shower for 2.5 months.

:36:58.:37:03.

The British sailor Alex Thomson will finish second in the Vendee Globe

:37:04.:37:06.

He is trying to get to the line, the tide has gone a bit against him. We

:37:07.:37:19.

were hoping to speak to him later this morning.

:37:20.:37:20.

Already on dry land after 74 days at sea is the french winner,

:37:21.:37:23.

Armel Le Claeach, who has smashed the previous record by almost 4 days

:37:24.:37:27.

Finally a heart warming story that shows the power

:37:28.:37:29.

When Henry Baines, a Middlesbrough fan,

:37:30.:37:32.

who's 10, wrote to his hero, midfielder Marten de Roon,

:37:33.:37:35.

as part of his school literacy project, he couldn't have imagined,

:37:36.:37:38.

the response he would get from the Dutchman.

:37:39.:37:41.

The other day I got a letter from Henry and he told me

:37:42.:37:45.

I was his idol and told me a few nice things so as a surprise I am

:37:46.:37:49.

going to go to his own and give him a shirt from Middlesbrough

:37:50.:37:53.

Hello. Hello, I'm looking for Henry.

:37:54.:38:00.

Who is this? Are you Henry.

:38:01.:38:02.

Yeah. Delighted.

:38:03.:38:05.

I not trying to influence his teacher. Look at the letter, surely

:38:06.:38:27.

top marks. You to flee written. He wants to up like his hero. You are

:38:28.:38:34.

the best player in the world, I wish could meet you. I play for a team

:38:35.:38:40.

and we have not lost all season. Look, there he is asleep in his

:38:41.:38:46.

shirt after his idol stayed at his house for over an hour. It is nice

:38:47.:38:56.

when those things happened. We are going to go back to the race. We

:38:57.:39:01.

were waiting for Alex Thompson to cross the line. Look, he's on his

:39:02.:39:09.

way in. Look at the angle. These are live pictures. Is that he had done?

:39:10.:39:16.

The way he was reacting it would suggest he has crossed the line.

:39:17.:39:25.

That is arriving in style. When you are tipping like that, it is quite

:39:26.:39:28.

scary but he did not seem off-balance at all. He only got 20

:39:29.:39:35.

minutes sleep at a time as well. We might be able to speak to him. Jude

:39:36.:39:41.

to the tile it could take a while to get into the harbour. It isn't just

:39:42.:39:50.

hours away from the worlds most powerful job. Signalling the most

:39:51.:39:57.

radical change in modern times for the US government. In just a moment,

:39:58.:40:04.

we will be speaking to Elizabeth Lyndon.

:40:05.:40:11.

executive Elizabeth Linder, but first Rajini Vaidyanathan

:40:12.:40:13.

takes a look at what the day holds for the President-elect.

:40:14.:40:16.

This is where Donald Trump will wake up on inauguration morning. Blair

:40:17.:40:26.

house. It does not look like much really but it has been named the

:40:27.:40:30.

most exclusive hotel in the world because it has played host to

:40:31.:40:39.

distinguished guests over the years. That St John's Episcopal church and

:40:40.:40:43.

that is where Mr Trump will lead to fall a church service. Barak Obama

:40:44.:40:49.

came here for a service on the morning of his inauguration as well.

:40:50.:40:54.

It will take a very short journey across the road to the White House.

:40:55.:40:59.

I do not think they will letter scene. As part the tradition, he

:41:00.:41:05.

will go to meet President Obama and have coffee and tea. Another

:41:06.:41:08.

tradition is that the outgoing president always write the incoming

:41:09.:41:18.

President note, a word of advice. This, the US capital, is where

:41:19.:41:22.

Donald Trump will officially become president. Politicians at

:41:23.:41:27.

dignitaries will get to watch from up close. The rest of us we will

:41:28.:41:40.

have to watch down on the maul. Next comes the parade led by the

:41:41.:41:45.

president and first lady. The parade even goes past year, the new Trump

:41:46.:41:52.

hotel in DC. And who would have thought that when he was planning

:41:53.:41:58.

this hotel, he would one day be moving into the White House.

:41:59.:42:03.

We're joined now in the studio by Elizabeth Linder,

:42:04.:42:06.

and the founder of The Conversational Century,

:42:07.:42:09.

which advises politicians on connecting with the public.

:42:10.:42:11.

Good morning. What a day. It is a huge. I have to admit, usually an

:42:12.:42:24.

inauguration feels like an aircraft heeding altitude and a captain gets

:42:25.:42:29.

on and describes where we're going. Some might be excited, some bum down

:42:30.:42:36.

because they are up on another business trip, but generally

:42:37.:42:39.

speaking you know the direction. This is the first inauguration day

:42:40.:42:46.

Mary Americans are thinking we taking planes, trains or potable

:42:47.:42:52.

bills. -- many Americans. That is exactly what Donald Trump wants. It

:42:53.:42:59.

is interesting you phrase it like that because I think there is a

:43:00.:43:03.

sense and I do not mean to speak to people outside of America, but over

:43:04.:43:07.

here, people are still going, really? President Trump! We do it is

:43:08.:43:18.

happening and we know this is real. Is there a different sensibility in

:43:19.:43:21.

America because it is a very patriotic nation so is the feeling

:43:22.:43:27.

that whatever we thought we fall but is it different this time round? I

:43:28.:43:34.

think it is different. This feels less like the moment of victory and

:43:35.:43:38.

more like the moment of disruption for his fans. They elected him to

:43:39.:43:45.

shake things up and now they are seeing him as the 45th president,

:43:46.:43:53.

come into the setting of the seat and view him in this setting and

:43:54.:43:57.

saying how much can you change in this place? For people who did not

:43:58.:44:02.

support an this feels like a disastrous moment. On a much greater

:44:03.:44:10.

scale. One of the things he has talked about is a unity. Bringing

:44:11.:44:16.

unity to the country. How is he going to bring people together? I

:44:17.:44:22.

think that will be really, really important for him to emphasise that

:44:23.:44:27.

today. For those who may have read the Times interview, the Times of

:44:28.:44:33.

London, one of the statements that surprise me is that he does not

:44:34.:44:45.

believe in the concept of the hero. Usually the role of the hero is to

:44:46.:44:50.

bring people together and Americans love here is, look at our film

:44:51.:44:55.

history, so much of the American story is built on that. I think it

:44:56.:45:00.

will be important for Donald Trump to do that. If we wanted to hear

:45:01.:45:06.

from someone who might know what is going on in his ad you might hope

:45:07.:45:11.

the press secretary about that and about what might be in the speech.

:45:12.:45:17.

He said, expect something a bit more philosophical. Is this the first

:45:18.:45:23.

sign that President Trump is going to be different from candidate

:45:24.:45:28.

Trump? It very well might be. The farewell address from Barak Obama

:45:29.:45:33.

had so much resonance is of the past, the American stories and what

:45:34.:45:39.

makes us the nation that we are today, the patriotic nation. Will

:45:40.:45:44.

Donald Trump pick up that baton and run with it? I would hark him back

:45:45.:45:51.

to the third president of the US, Thomas Jefferson, he used his second

:45:52.:45:58.

inaugural address to speak directly about talking to the people. He said

:45:59.:46:03.

the press were so brutal to him back in the day. We think it is bad now

:46:04.:46:10.

but it was terrible back then. He said to appeal directly to the

:46:11.:46:16.

people. If I was Donald Trump, I would aim to go back to that year in

:46:17.:46:21.

history as an art to show this is not necessarily something new. More

:46:22.:46:28.

Twitter? Remember, this is a president who sees himself as a

:46:29.:46:32.

businessman and it is the first time he is coming into a public sector

:46:33.:46:41.

role. Thank you very much. Before we get the weather, we want to show you

:46:42.:46:46.

the scene in Washington this moment. Five hours behind the UK. Stanley

:46:47.:46:52.

magnificently. Not long before Donald Trump will have the key to

:46:53.:46:59.

the White House. They are saying maybe 900,000 people expect it to

:47:00.:47:05.

line the streets. They will be arriving over the next few hours.

:47:06.:47:07.

And this is the picture in London. Here's Nick with this

:47:08.:47:12.

morning's weather. Good morning. Cold and clear in

:47:13.:47:23.

London, but it is looking like a wet one in Washington, DC, that's

:47:24.:47:28.

900,000 raincoats that will get some use today, as the weather system

:47:29.:47:32.

works its way through. About four Celsius in Washington, DC at the

:47:33.:47:36.

moment, on its way to a high of about 8-9. Here, we are getting used

:47:37.:47:44.

to contrast across the UK in terms of the weather. Today it was -6 in

:47:45.:47:48.

the coldest part of southern England. Where we have cloud it is

:47:49.:47:54.

making the difference. A weather front is giving cloud across much of

:47:55.:47:57.

northern England and into Northern Ireland as well stop here you are

:47:58.:48:03.

avoiding the frost. It means we hold onto a lot of the cloud. If it is

:48:04.:48:07.

cold and frosty expect some good sunshine. Frosty start in the

:48:08.:48:12.

Channel Islands. Look at the picture across England and Wales to begin

:48:13.:48:15.

the day. We get some lovely blue sky on its way. Some fog around in

:48:16.:48:20.

Lincolnshire, the Midlands, the Welsh marshes as well. Some of the

:48:21.:48:25.

thick in places. Where we've got the thicker cloud in northern England,

:48:26.:48:28.

Northern Ireland and southern Scotland, it could be drizzly in

:48:29.:48:32.

places. Northern Scotland getting some sunny spells. Frost in

:48:33.:48:35.

Aberdeenshire which will eventually lift. Across a large part of England

:48:36.:48:42.

and Wales, even in the southern parts of northern England, a couple

:48:43.:48:45.

of spots into Northern Ireland, it breaks out in the sunshine.

:48:46.:48:50.

Temperatures on the chilly side. There's an extra bite to the chill

:48:51.:48:55.

across southern England, with an easterly breeze. Highs of 5-8

:48:56.:48:59.

Celsius. With more sunshine on offer, clearer skies tonight, more

:49:00.:49:04.

of us get a frost. Again, a sharp and hard frost in places. Patchy fog

:49:05.:49:09.

developing. The most at risk in the eastern side of England into

:49:10.:49:14.

Saturday morning. Temperatures lower in rural spots, so we could see -5,

:49:15.:49:20.

-6 again as Saturday begins. That takes us into the weekend. First of

:49:21.:49:23.

all it is high pressure, looking quiet. Frosty and foggy. Then

:49:24.:49:28.

sunshine. More widespread in Scotland and Northern Ireland,

:49:29.:49:36.

increasing for the north Sea. Temperatures still on the chilly

:49:37.:49:42.

side. Saturday evening and Saturday night, not as much frost around.

:49:43.:49:46.

Still a bit of patchy fog. Looking ahead to the second part of the

:49:47.:49:50.

weekend on Sunday, or cloud, patchy rain, wintry on the hills. Showers

:49:51.:49:56.

to the south-west. That's the weekend. All looking fairly quiet

:49:57.:50:00.

for getting out and about. Thanks very much.

:50:01.:50:08.

On inauguration day a lot of people start wondering when it was that

:50:09.:50:15.

Donald Trump started inking he could be president. You interviewed him

:50:16.:50:20.

four years ago. I did. At that time we were talking a lot about his

:50:21.:50:24.

interest in the UK from a business point of view. I spoke to him about

:50:25.:50:28.

politics and he clearly had an interest. At what was interesting

:50:29.:50:31.

about him is when he came into the room he really had that are of a

:50:32.:50:35.

leader. Whether you agree with him or not, he came in and commanded the

:50:36.:50:40.

room in lots of respect and was very much in control and he essentially

:50:41.:50:45.

had that kind of power that you often see with the leaders.

:50:46.:50:51.

We will see a little bit of that interview later this morning. It is

:50:52.:50:54.

the first thing you hear about people's encounters with him. But

:50:55.:50:58.

question marks about how much we really know about the billionaire

:50:59.:51:00.

turned politician. T is for Trump, but his ancestral

:51:01.:51:03.

name, Drumpf, is part German, and part gold opportunist,

:51:04.:51:13.

part Scottish migrant mother. R is for real estate,

:52:00.:52:10.

:52:11.:52:14.

believe that story? I am also very much

:52:15.:52:17.

of a germaphobe, by the way. The Simpsons first called it,

to trademark this phrase... That belonged to Ronald

:52:37.:52:48.

to Washington today and this is the pledge upon which he

:52:49.:52:51.

will soon be judged. It's a hugely important day. You can

:52:52.:53:07.

see the live shots of Capitol Hill right now. Early hours of the

:53:08.:53:11.

morning, but they are expecting up to 1 million people to be lining the

:53:12.:53:16.

streets. In terms of the sequence of events, B give you an idea of the

:53:17.:53:22.

timing. 5pm this afternoon, UK time, is the actual inauguration. That's

:53:23.:53:27.

the moment when he becomes President Trump. You can see coverage on the

:53:28.:53:32.

BBC from 3pm, BBC One from four p.m.. Obviously there will be a

:53:33.:53:36.

sequence of events that the President-elect goes through in the

:53:37.:53:40.

morning, ahead of that momentous moment in time.

:53:41.:53:45.

A ceremony full of parade, lots of its celebration. We will talk about

:53:46.:53:47.

it throughout the morning. The British sailor Alex Thomson has

:53:48.:53:52.

claimed second place in the solo -- has claimed second

:53:53.:53:58.

place in the solo The competition was won

:53:59.:54:00.

by the Frenchman Armel Le Cleac'h. I believe we can talk to him now

:54:01.:54:12.

because he has made it back to base. That's the map you can see. Showing

:54:13.:54:16.

the extraordinary route and some of the ordeal he has been through. Good

:54:17.:54:23.

morning, Alex. Good morning! Firstly, congratulations, across a

:54:24.:54:28.

know you desperately wanted to win this race. Second place is a

:54:29.:54:36.

fantastic result. Well, it is. Finishing this race is a result.

:54:37.:54:41.

Second is fantastic. I finished third last time, so it is definitely

:54:42.:54:46.

a step up. Not quite the first I was after. I finished about ten minutes

:54:47.:54:51.

ago. It is an amazing group of people here. A funny day, a bit

:54:52.:54:57.

cold. How are you feeling? You have done so really well, you've broken

:54:58.:55:02.

records. It is a massive achievement. How are you feeling? It

:55:03.:55:07.

will take a little bit of time to sink in, probably. I spent about

:55:08.:55:13.

five hours of the last three days sleeping at having slept at all in

:55:14.:55:17.

the four hours, so I am running on the final bit of adrenaline left in

:55:18.:55:22.

my body. Other family there? Have you been reunited? Yes, my wife and

:55:23.:55:29.

son just got onboard. It is amazing to finish. Strange because I spent

:55:30.:55:36.

about 70 days on my own and suddenly there are many people here when I go

:55:37.:55:42.

into the channel in a minute there will probably be hundreds of

:55:43.:55:46.

thousands. It is an amazing contrast. A wonderful way to finish.

:55:47.:55:52.

You mentioned about being away from the family. I saw your wife on the

:55:53.:55:56.

telly last night, saying she can't wait to give you a hug. How have you

:55:57.:56:00.

cope with all of that? Was the looming as the hardest bit? --

:56:01.:56:07.

loneliness. I don't necessarily feel lonely. I know I've got fantastic

:56:08.:56:12.

support at home, I've got a beautiful wife, great kids and I

:56:13.:56:18.

love them very much, so how could I feel lonely? Alex, congratulations,

:56:19.:56:24.

well done. We are glad you are home, safe and well. Enjoy the time with

:56:25.:56:28.

your family. Lovely to speak to you. Isn't it beautiful, the picture is

:56:29.:56:35.

everybody. A quiet weekend of weather ahead, all the details in

:02:08.:02:10.

the next half an hour. Nick, thank you.

:02:11.:02:14.

He's just hours away from the world's most powerful job.

:02:15.:02:18.

Donald Trump will be sworn in as the 45th President

:02:19.:02:20.

of the United States, signalling the most

:02:21.:02:22.

radical change in the US government in modern times.

:02:23.:02:26.

His inauguration takes place at five o'clock this afternoon UK time.

:02:27.:02:30.

Throughout the morning on Breakfast, we'll be speaking to people who know

:02:31.:02:33.

the President-elect and hearing the thoughts of American voters.

:02:34.:02:37.

Last night, in the shadow of the Lincoln Memorial,

:02:38.:02:39.

the billionaire businessman turned politician told the crowd

:02:40.:02:41.

that he will unify the country and give a voice to people

:02:42.:02:44.

Our reporter Laura Bicker sent this report from Washington.

This is a musical warm-up act for one of the greatest

And centre stage for this welcome concert is its star.

This is a first look at Donald Trump's inauguration

crowds, his chance to address those who put him in office.

:03:12.:03:21.

The polls started going up, up, up, but they didn't

:03:22.:03:24.

want to give us credit, because they forgot

:03:25.:03:26.

On the campaign I called it "the forgotten man

:03:27.:03:35.

Well, you are not forgotten any more,

:03:36.:03:39.

Few predicted he would be the 45th president,

:03:40.:03:52.

but the businessman says he has plans.

:03:53.:03:54.

We are going to do things that haven't been done for our country

:03:55.:03:57.

As Trump supporters lined the Lincoln Memorial to cheer,

:03:58.:04:01.

In New York, thousands marched to the Trump Hotel, with a message

:04:02.:04:08.

We are all rooting for the new administration, of course,

:04:09.:04:15.

to abandon the divisive, racist, misogynistic, ignorant plans

:04:16.:04:19.

it's trumpeting and lead us with intelligence and compassion.

:04:20.:04:25.

Donald Trump may be toasting his victory

:04:26.:04:30.

with good friends and family, he knows he has won the hearts

:04:31.:04:33.

of those he calls the "forgotten," but there is work to do

:04:34.:04:36.

if he is to persuade those who fear a President Trump.

:04:37.:04:40.

Laura joins us from our Washington bureau this morning.

:04:41.:04:44.

Laura, what can we expect from the rest of the day?

:04:45.:04:48.

Hundreds of thousands of people are expected to stream into Washington.

:04:49.:04:55.

What will happen, Donald Trump will wake up across from the White House

:04:56.:05:00.

and make his way to the steps of the Capitol. He will swear the oath, it

:05:01.:05:09.

is just 35 words, that oath, that will make him President of the

:05:10.:05:12.

United States, and he will have his hand on two Bibles, the Lincoln

:05:13.:05:17.

Bible and a Bible that is his own. His wife Melania will be at his

:05:18.:05:24.

side. Thousands of people are expected to line the streets, but

:05:25.:05:29.

28,000 security guards are standing by in case there are any protests.

:05:30.:05:33.

Because this has been a contentious and divisive election, and Donald

:05:34.:05:39.

Trump knows that he has to give a clear message from the steps of the

:05:40.:05:43.

Capitol tomorrow if he is to unify a divided country. Laura, thank you

:05:44.:05:46.

very much. You can watch live coverage

:05:47.:05:50.

of today's inauguration ceremony from 3pm this afternoon

:05:51.:05:52.

on the BBC News Channel The inauguration itself is happening

:05:53.:06:07.

at 5pm. Let's have a look at today's other news stories.

:06:08.:06:13.

Three people have died and at least 29 others have been injured

:06:14.:06:15.

after a driver deliberately crashed into a crowd of people

:06:16.:06:18.

Let's find out more from our correspondent Hywell Griffith.

:06:19.:06:22.

Good morning. Take us through what happened. This happened right in the

:06:23.:06:27.

middle of a busy Melbourne city centre around lunchtime here in

:06:28.:06:34.

Australia. The driver seemingly determined and deliberately driving

:06:35.:06:35.

towards pedestrians, mowing them down. Some of the footage I have

:06:36.:06:41.

seen suggests he was driving at up to 40 mph on the pavement. Earlier

:06:42.:06:47.

on, the driver was spotted circling menacingly, shouting out of his

:06:48.:06:52.

maroon coloured vehicle, going round and round in circles outside the

:06:53.:06:56.

train station before he set off on this chaotic path. Tragically, he

:06:57.:07:01.

mowed down three people, a man and woman in their 30s, and a young

:07:02.:07:05.

child, who died. Another 20 or so people have been injured, including

:07:06.:07:10.

a baby in a pram struck by the car. The police spilled out quickly this

:07:11.:07:14.

was not a terror incident. They say the man is well-known to them, has a

:07:15.:07:20.

past of violence, drug problems and mental health issues. Early in the

:07:21.:07:24.

day he was involved in a stabbing, and took a woman hostage. The police

:07:25.:07:30.

have locked down the centre of Melbourne, it is still an active

:07:31.:07:34.

crime scene, but they say the man is in custody and they are not looking

:07:35.:07:35.

for anyone else. Thank you. Rescuers in Italy have worked

:07:36.:07:40.

through the night in the hope of finding more survivors

:07:41.:07:43.

from an avalanche that Four people are known

:07:44.:07:44.

to have died, and as many Our correspondent James Reynolds

:07:45.:07:48.

is in the Abruzzo region for us. Four earthquakes rocked the

:07:49.:08:01.

Rigopiano Hotel in the Abruzzo region.

:08:02.:08:17.

This was the hotel Rigopiano in the height of summer

:08:18.:08:19.

and this was of the hotel after the avalanche struck.

:08:20.:08:22.

Parts of it barely visible under tonnes of snow and ice.

:08:23.:08:24.

Reports said one wing of the structure was shunted ten

:08:25.:08:27.

Residents were said to be rin the hotel hall,

:08:28.:08:30.

waiting for evacuation, when the avalanche struck.

:08:31.:08:32.

On arriving, rescuers found an incredible silence

:08:33.:08:34.

and an interior filled with snow set rock-hard.

:08:35.:08:36.

About 35 people were in the hotel at the time, most are still missing.

:08:37.:08:38.

The rescue operation has been continuing throughout the night.

:08:39.:08:41.

The chances are slim but some people may have survived.

:08:42.:08:48.

TRANSLATION: In these cases, hope is what keeps the workers going.

:08:49.:08:50.

If there was no hope the rescuers would not give it

:08:51.:08:53.

There is always hope and here too, we have some technical

:08:54.:08:57.

As vehicles struggled to reach the site by road,

:08:58.:09:01.

there was criticism of the delay in launching the rescue operation.

:09:02.:09:04.

The only survivors were in the hotel car park when the snow struck -

:09:05.:09:07.

they phoned for help but initially at least no one in authority

:09:08.:09:10.

realised the seriousness of the situation.

The time now is ten minutes past eight. Back to our main story this

:10:45.:10:49.

morning, the inauguration of the 45th president of the United States.

:10:50.:10:51.

This is a historic week. In this historic week,

:10:52.:10:55.

Breakfast's Jon Kay has travelled down the middle of America

:11:15.:11:23.

Jon, but America is going on an extraordinary journey, and today is

:11:24.:11:27.

the day Donald Trump finally becomes president Trump. Indeed, we have

:11:28.:11:35.

reached the end of Route 45, but America now begins its next journey.

:11:36.:11:40.

We have done 1000 miles this week, been through five states, spoken to

:11:41.:11:44.

dozens of people, and you get down to the end of route 45, and this is

:11:45.:11:51.

what you see, this warship, the USS Alabama, a symbol of American might

:11:52.:11:55.

and power, and I guess that is what today is all about, the power and

:11:56.:11:58.

might of America maybe not quite what it used to be. When Donald

:11:59.:12:03.

Trump won the election a few weeks ago, he came here to the city of

Mobil to hold a giant rally, and we thought this would be a great place

:12:11.:12:15.

to come to talk to voters about the reality TV star from the Apprentice

who swaps the boardroom to sit at a desk in the Oval Office. When we

:12:25.:12:30.

decided to talk to voters here, there was really only one place we

:12:31.:12:32.

could go to today. But this is Washington

White House. Do you think Donald Trump

:15:47.:15:48.

will change that? You don't think so?

:15:49.:16:02.

No, I do not. Because the politicians,

:16:03.:16:12.

the governments, they've all got their hands like crabs

in a bucket. After 1,000 miles crossing

the United States, we reach And this divided nation will try to

move on and begin its new journey. What is very clear, is the division,

:16:25.:16:47.

you have spoken to so many people, but one of the big things Donald

:16:48.:16:53.

Trump has said he wants to do, bring unity to the country, do you get any

:16:54.:16:58.

sense of how he might be able to do that? I think Americans like the

:16:59.:17:04.

idea after an election of uniting behind their new president, whoever

:17:05.:17:09.

it is and normally that happens quite easily. They backed them and

:17:10.:17:15.

save this is the president, let's move forward. -- Bay -- they backed

:17:16.:17:25.

them and say. This is different, though. It is not as easy for people

:17:26.:17:31.

to put aside their differences so it will be very interesting. What many

:17:32.:17:36.

people have told me, what he says today at the inauguration and the

:17:37.:17:41.

way he behaves today is going to be the way that they make up their mind

:17:42.:17:45.

about how this is going to work. Is he going to be the reality star who

:17:46.:17:52.

puts messages on Twitter and is sarcastic and rude? Is he going to

:17:53.:17:57.

be presidential and change his persona? That will persuade people

:17:58.:18:02.

to back him, some people, but those characteristics I just mentioned are

:18:03.:18:06.

the reason some people like him in the first place and they don't want

:18:07.:18:11.

him to change, they want him to big Zachary as he is, so he has got one

:18:12.:18:17.

heck of a job, uniting the United States -- they want him to be

:18:18.:18:24.

exactly as he is. He is one of those people, Jeff Carter, that Donald

:18:25.:18:30.

Trump is trying to appeal to, in that video there, but he was pretty

:18:31.:18:33.

sceptical about whether anything will ever change. That is the real

:18:34.:18:43.

challenge. The expectations are so- Donald Trump, for the people who

:18:44.:18:47.

support him, because he has promised all kinds of things body hasn't

:18:48.:18:51.

given many details -- are so high for Donald Trump. People want to

:18:52.:18:56.

know how he's going to do it and then, can he deliver. Expectations

:18:57.:19:02.

are so high, he has a long way to fall and he needs results quickly.

:19:03.:19:06.

He says he's a businessman and he delivers big projects, he's a

:19:07.:19:09.

property developer, but can he deliver the scale of politics, the

:19:10.:19:16.

scale of American politics. People here have short attention spans and

:19:17.:19:20.

they want results like that. 100 days, they normally judge a

:19:21.:19:24.

president by that, but I think some people here will judge him by the

:19:25.:19:28.

first year. John, thanks for joining us. -- I think some people here will

:19:29.:19:40.

judging by the first few. We can now set the scene for you. It is the

:19:41.:19:47.

early hours in Washington, but that is the scene and that is the place

:19:48.:19:53.

where later today five o'clock UK time, the inauguration takes place.

:19:54.:20:00.

There is a series of events in the run-up to the actual moment when

:20:01.:20:04.

Donald Trump becomes president. In amongst the other issues, slightly

:20:05.:20:10.

bigger issues, what will the weather be like? Nick has the details.

:20:11.:20:19.

Raincoats at the ready in Washington, DC, it is about five

:20:20.:20:23.

Celsius at the moment, but there is rain on the way. Temperatures are

:20:24.:20:29.

not going up very far but there will be wet weather around. Not very much

:20:30.:20:36.

at all across the UK. We have a range of temperatures in the UK,

:20:37.:20:41.

this is a frosty scene from one of our weather watchers in Essex. There

:20:42.:20:49.

is a frost in parts of eastern Scotland and into Cardiff, but

:20:50.:20:52.

Belfast is 7 degrees and Shetland at 8 degrees. Sunshine to come where

:20:53.:20:58.

you are starting to cold, but if you are close to the weather front

:20:59.:21:03.

expect cloud. This is the picture at ten o'clock this morning. Frosty day

:21:04.:21:09.

to start for the Channel Islands. There are foggy patches around in

:21:10.:21:14.

places, Lincolnshire, parts of the Midlands, quite sick. -- quite

:21:15.:21:23.

thick. The central belt in Scotland, north of that there are sunny

:21:24.:21:28.

spells. That is the cloudy zone. It might nibble at the southern edge,

:21:29.:21:34.

maybe some sunshine, also Northern Ireland with the blue sky. The

:21:35.:21:39.

sunshine is a bit more widespread than it has been. It doesn't do much

:21:40.:21:43.

for the temperatures, though, there is a chilly feel to things. As we go

:21:44.:21:51.

into tonight, a lot of clear weather and that means a frost returns, more

:21:52.:21:54.

widespread tonight. Hard frost in places. -6 in the coldest areas.

:21:55.:22:02.

Patchy fog also developing, more especially to eastern parts of

:22:03.:22:06.

England. Rural temperatures are lower than this. If you are out

:22:07.:22:11.

first thing on Saturday morning, it will be a cold start. Frost, patchy

:22:12.:22:16.

fog, and plenty of sunshine to come in the first part of Saturday, more

:22:17.:22:21.

so across Scotland and Northern Ireland and even northern England,

:22:22.:22:25.

but then we drag the area of cloud in from the North Sea and into the

:22:26.:22:30.

Midlands as we go through the day. Plenty of cloud in northern England.

:22:31.:22:34.

Saturday evening, that will produce patchy rain, and going into Sunday,

:22:35.:22:39.

maybe wintry showers will stop maybe a bit of sleet and snow mixed in

:22:40.:22:44.

over the hills. More cloud on Sunday, less sunshine, temperatures

:22:45.:22:49.

in single figures. There is a chill around. Most places will be dry this

:22:50.:22:55.

weekend. High pressure in control. The main thing I have to mention,

:22:56.:23:01.

it's the weekend. Thanks for joining us.

:23:02.:23:09.

And now back to the inauguration of Donald Trump, becoming the 45th

:23:10.:23:13.

President of the United States. We're joined now from London's

:23:14.:23:18.

Southbank by Richard Torrenzano, Republican political commentator

:23:19.:23:21.

and associate of Donald Trump. Good morning. You are someone who

:23:22.:23:30.

has been to five inaugurations, how do you think this is going to

:23:31.:23:38.

compare? Good morning from the chilly river Thames, this

:23:39.:23:41.

inauguration is different, like every inauguration, the one thing

:23:42.:23:46.

that is required is the oath of office by the President, 35 words

:23:47.:23:52.

which have not changed in 200 years. What will be different, the parade

:23:53.:24:05.

for example will be shorter. I think one of the important things look at

:24:06.:24:10.

today is the inaugural address, to see the thematic tone that Donald

:24:11.:24:14.

Trump takes. Another important point, three weeks from now, we have

:24:15.:24:18.

the state of the union, and to see the difference in those speeches and

:24:19.:24:24.

the similarities. This speech should be inspirational today, and the one

:24:25.:24:27.

in a few weeks at the state of the union will be one with more detail

:24:28.:24:36.

regarding the upcoming years. For many people this speech will be

:24:37.:24:41.

important in terms of how the President will unify people, he has

:24:42.:24:43.

said he would like to unify people in the country, what kind of man is

:24:44.:24:48.

Donald Trump that will be able to do this? I think this beach will be a

:24:49.:24:55.

thematic speech to unify the country, but let me give you a

:24:56.:24:59.

perspective which is important. -- I think this speech was the

:25:00.:25:09.

Republicans won a four plays majority in the Senate and 47%

:25:10.:25:16.

majority seats in the house gully House, they control the executive

:25:17.:25:20.

branch, and by having the majority in the Senate they can control the

:25:21.:25:25.

judiciary and in the first couple of weeks President Trump will appoint

:25:26.:25:33.

with the advice of the Senate, a new Supreme Court justice and he might

:25:34.:25:36.

have the opportunity to appoint a few more during his administration

:25:37.:25:38.

and he will also have the opportunity to appoint more than 100

:25:39.:25:43.

federal local judges in the United States. More importantly, about 33

:25:44.:25:49.

governors are Republicans in the United States and more importantly

:25:50.:25:53.

than that, 32 state legislators in both houses are controlled high the

:25:54.:25:58.

public and said the depth and breadth of Donald Trump's majority,

:25:59.:26:03.

coming to Washington is really enormous -- and so the depth and

:26:04.:26:09.

breadth. You have known Donald Trump for a long time, is he the same in

:26:10.:26:14.

private as he is in the public? He's very thoughtful in private, one of

:26:15.:26:20.

the smartest men I've ever met, and he has a terrific sense of humour. I

:26:21.:26:24.

hope some of that begins to come out as he takes the presidency. The

:26:25.:26:29.

sense of humour doesn't necessarily make a good president. What are his

:26:30.:26:33.

qualities that will make him a good president? Controversy has followed

:26:34.:26:39.

him around like a bad smell. First of all, look at the Cabinet he has

:26:40.:26:49.

assembled, a group of very prominent business political and military

:26:50.:26:53.

leaders, the finest cabinet I've seen in my lifetime. Rex is a very

:26:54.:27:03.

distinguished executive who ran Exxon Mobil. He ran it for many

:27:04.:27:08.

years with great integrity. Former legal Scout. He will do very well

:27:09.:27:17.

and he understands the issues both internally and in the State

:27:18.:27:19.

Department as well as externally throughout the world. You go down

:27:20.:27:24.

the list, all of the Cabinet offices are very accomplished people.

:27:25.:27:29.

Accomplished by the prophets and loss and accomplished by the

:27:30.:27:33.

military. -- profits and loss. Thanks for joining us.

:27:34.:30:57.

Now though it's back to Charlie and Steph.

:30:58.:31:05.

Hello, this is Breakfast with Steph McGovern and Charlie Stayt.

:31:06.:31:09.

He's just hours away from the world's most powerful job.

:31:10.:31:12.

Donald Trump will be sworn in as the 45th President

:31:13.:31:15.

of the United States, signalling the most

:31:16.:31:18.

radical change in the US government in modern times.

:31:19.:31:24.

His inauguration takes place at 5pm UK time.

:31:25.:31:28.

Throughout the morning on Breakfast, we'll be speaking to people who know

:31:29.:31:31.

the President-elect, and hearing the thoughts

:31:32.:31:32.

Last night, in the shadow of the Lincoln Memorial, the billionaire

:31:33.:31:40.

businessman turned politician told the crowds that he would unify the

:31:41.:31:44.

country and give a voice to the people who had been forgotten. It's

:31:45.:31:52.

a movement that started, and it's a movement like we've never seen

:31:53.:31:58.

anywhere in the world, they say. There has never been a movement like

:31:59.:32:03.

this, and it's something very, very special. And we're going to unify

:32:04.:32:10.

our country, and our phrase, you all know it, half of you are wearing the

:32:11.:32:19.

hat, Make America Great Again... But we're going to make America great

:32:20.:32:30.

for all of our people, everybody. That was Donald Trump ahead of

:32:31.:32:34.

today's inauguration, speaking at a rally last night. We have been

:32:35.:32:38.

hearing about divisions in America as Donald Trump takes power, he also

:32:39.:32:43.

divides opinion around the world. Anti-Trump campaigners will display

:32:44.:32:47.

more than 150 banners across the world in response to his

:32:48.:32:48.

inauguration. One of the first places it will

:32:49.:32:52.

happen is London's Tower Bridge. Keith Doyle is there

:32:53.:32:55.

for us this morning. Good morning, Keith.

:32:56.:33:01.

Good morning from one of the most iconic landmarks in the UK, probably

:33:02.:33:10.

in the world. This is where Ban Is Not Wars have kick-started their

:33:11.:33:17.

campaign to but banners across the Thames in central London and many

:33:18.:33:20.

places around the UK and around the world. You can see the banner behind

:33:21.:33:29.

me which says, act now! Just one of many across the UK and Europe,

:33:30.:33:36.

around the world. One of the union -- one of the organisers of this is

:33:37.:33:41.

with me. Why have you decided to do this today? We wanted to show our

:33:42.:33:46.

support for groups that are under attack in the US by what we feel is

:33:47.:33:54.

divisive far right politics. Why have you bought this message to the

:33:55.:33:58.

UK? We want to support people in America but this is not just about

:33:59.:34:02.

Donald Trump, we are very worried about the rise of far right politics

:34:03.:34:07.

in the UK as well, for instant in the lead up to the Brexit campaign

:34:08.:34:11.

we saw very ugly language from people like Nigel Farage, we are

:34:12.:34:17.

very worried about Theresa May's commitment to cutting down on

:34:18.:34:20.

immigration in the Brexit negotiations, so we feel it's very

:34:21.:34:25.

much needed here as well. This is not the only protest going on over

:34:26.:34:28.

the weekend, there is a march going on tomorrow, Kimberly, you are

:34:29.:34:33.

behind that, can you give us some details? It will be one of the

:34:34.:34:39.

biggest marches ever held? Yes, globally, we have more than 60

:34:40.:34:44.

countries marching, more than 600 marches and growing over seven

:34:45.:34:49.

continents. Ours kicks off at 12pm at the US embassy. That is the

:34:50.:34:53.

women's march on London, marches held across many parts of the UK and

:34:54.:34:57.

of course the world, and it is not just women? Know, everyone is

:34:58.:35:01.

welcome. From Tower Bridge and the start of the protest on what is a

:35:02.:35:06.

momentous day around the world, we hand you back to the studio.

:35:07.:35:08.

:37:31.:37:36.

Apparently it is a tradition and some 20 tonnes of turnips are used

:37:37.:37:42.

for this. I have seen tomato ones which look pain-free in comparison.

:37:43.:37:47.

A turnip hurt! I have not had many thrown at me, but...

:37:48.:37:51.

Mike, you probably have! When the kids don't like my roast, yes!

:37:52.:37:56.

Might have got the sport in just a moment but let's see what else is

:37:57.:37:58.

coming up. The eyes of the world will be

:37:59.:38:03.

on Donald Trump this afternoon as he's sworn in as the 45th

:38:04.:38:06.

President of the United States. We'll discuss what kind

:38:07.:38:09.

of President he'll be. The biggest breakthrough

:38:10.:38:11.

in the diagnosis of prostate cancer in decades is being revealed

:38:12.:38:13.

by scientists in the Lancet today. We'll speak to the doctor

:38:14.:38:16.

behind the report. And after 9am, fans

:38:17.:38:20.

of Call The Midwife are being told to prepare for some gruelling

:38:21.:38:23.

storylines in the new series. We'll be joined by Laura Main

:38:59.:39:08.

out another big name, Bernard Tomic, in front of his own Australian fans

:39:09.:39:12.

as well. It is ongoing at the moment so I

:39:13.:39:15.

don't want to say too much. What is this go?

:39:16.:39:21.

I will tell you! -- what is the school?

:39:22.:39:23.

It's already proving to be Dan Evan's best

:39:24.:39:25.

A first ATP tour final last weekend, and he's already gone further

than before at the Australian Open, where he now has the fourth

round in his sights, after taking the first set

:39:33.:39:36.

the only Australian left in the singles draw.

:39:37.:39:41.

He was a break up in the second but it has gone back to five. In fact,

:39:42.:39:48.

Tomic has broken back, so maybe I have spoken too soon! He is still

:39:49.:39:53.

very much in this match, really proving his worth against another

:39:54.:39:54.

big name. Andy Murray is through

:39:55.:39:56.

to the fourth round. It was as routine as victories go

:39:57.:40:01.

for the world number one, beating American Sam Querrey

:40:02.:40:04.

in straight sets. The 31st seed had little answer

:40:05.:40:07.

to Murray's all-round game. Next up for the Scot

:40:08.:40:09.

is Germany's Mischa Zverev. England's cricketers have lost

:40:10.:40:11.

the one-day series against India. The hosts reached 381-6,

thanks to brilliant centuries England captain Eoin Morgan

:41:13.:41:16.

the uber is welcome he has had on the West Coast of France after

:41:17.:41:19.

finishing second in the fund a Globe round the world yacht race. He broke

the record for the distance covered by a solo sailor in 24 hours and in

:41:24.:41:27.

the final stages was closing the gap between himself and the French

:41:28.:41:31.

winger Armel Le Cleac'h. He finally finished about an hour ago after 74

:41:32.:41:36.

days, 19 hours, 35 minutes and 15 seconds on his own at sea.

:41:37.:41:41.

Amazing to be finished, you know? You never really know when it's

:41:42.:41:46.

going to happen. I realised a couple of hours before I was definitely

:41:47.:41:51.

going to finish. It feels amazing, it's a long, long way, and it's just

:41:52.:41:56.

great to finally be here. 24, 36 hours ago I knew that was the end,

:41:57.:42:04.

so congratulations to Armel, a great race and he deserved it.

:42:05.:42:11.

That was earlier, we can look at live pictures now, hundreds of

:42:12.:42:14.

thousands of people they reckon lining the roots in the Bay of

:42:15.:42:19.

Biscay. There is Alex with his union Jack flag, his family on board as

:42:20.:42:23.

well. Having not spoken to anyone in the flesh for 74 days, that he is

:42:24.:42:28.

surrounded by people. Beautiful aerial views on the sunny morning on

:42:29.:42:31.

the Atlantic coast of France. Perfect Day.

:42:32.:42:36.

But look at the conditions, hardly a wave there which has delayed his

wishes. Doctors say the biggest leap

:43:03.:43:05.

in diagnosing prostate cancer in decades has been made

:43:06.:43:07.

using new scanning equipment. Research found using advanced MRI

:43:08.:43:10.

scanners nearly doubles the number of aggressive tumours

:43:11.:43:12.

that are caught. In a moment we'll be joined

by the chief executive of Prostate Cancer UK,

:43:14.:43:17.

the doctor behind the new study, and a prostate cancer survivor,

:43:18.:43:20.

but first here's our correspondent, Winning the World Cup for GB, that

:43:21.:43:22.

was definitely my finest hour... Fred Sal is a former Olympian that

:43:23.:43:36.

represented Great Britain Two years ago, he was diagnosed

:43:37.:43:38.

with prostate cancer. You know where you're at,

:43:39.:43:43.

as opposed to ignoring the problem, and then one day you have got some

:43:44.:43:45.

kind of chronic discomfort, and then you have months,

:43:46.:43:48.

or a short time, to live. That will be far more

:43:49.:43:56.

devastating for your loved ones Getting checked out saved

:43:57.:43:58.

Fred's life, but the way tests are carried

:43:59.:44:10.

out could soon change. Biopsies are commonly

:44:11.:44:12.

used to find cancer. A needle is put in the prostate

:44:13.:44:14.

and tissue is removed for analysis. But new research published

:44:15.:44:19.

in the main medical journal, the Lancet,

:44:20.:44:22.

finds MRI scans are more effective, finding cancer in 93% of cases

:44:23.:44:25.

correctly, compared to just If we can diagnose cancers that

are currently being missed by this very inaccurate

:44:29.:44:38.

standard transrectal biopsy test, and find important cancers early

:44:39.:44:42.

and treat them early, then I think we could see

:44:43.:44:44.

a significant impact Fred is now in the last

:44:45.:44:46.

stages of treatment. And for those with prostate cancer,

:44:47.:44:52.

the use of MRI scans could be a big Joining us on the sofa

:44:53.:44:56.

we have Angela Culhane, chief executive of Prostate Cancer

:44:57.:45:09.

UK, and John Taylor, who was successfully treated

:45:10.:45:11.

for prostate cancer. And from our London newsroom

:45:12.:45:14.

is Dr Hashim Ahmed, from University College London,

:45:15.:45:18.

who co-authored the report. If I can start with you, John, it is

:45:19.:45:28.

not a scientific test by any means, but you have a bone-crusher

:45:29.:45:34.

handshake! Something tells me that you're pretty well, are you OK now?

:45:35.:45:38.

I'm in great health and I've had fantastic treatment Tell Us About

:45:39.:45:41.

Your Story, When Did You First Realise That You Were Not Well? I

:45:42.:45:46.

Had A Problem About five years ago, I was going to the toilet

:45:47.:45:50.

incessantly, and I mean insistently. I went to see the GP about something

:45:51.:45:53.

else and I mentioned I had a problem, and he said, your mid-50s,

:45:54.:46:00.

what do you expect, don't worry about it you WERE worried? I was not

:46:01.:46:06.

worried because I always drink a lot of fluids. But I said, shall we not

:46:07.:46:13.

do a test I know he said, come back if it gets really bad. He's the

:46:14.:46:17.

doctor, and middle-aged men do not like to talk about anything which

:46:18.:46:20.

goes on down below. Off I went, quite happy because the doctor said

:46:21.:46:26.

it was OK. And I have a regular big health check every year, and it was

:46:27.:46:30.

picked up there. I had a level of 27. I was told I had a problem.

:46:31.:46:35.

Within a week I saw a consultant urologist, Robin Weston, who did the

:46:36.:46:41.

dreaded finger test and said there was an issue. I then had 14

:46:42.:46:46.

biopsies, not the most pleasant experience. And if the new test can

:46:47.:46:53.

reduce that and be more targeted and specific, it will speed up the whole

:46:54.:46:56.

process and take a look of the unpleasantness away from it look

:46:57.:47:02.

stalked to the doctor about this. Tell us about what difference it

:47:03.:47:08.

will make because we have heard about those invasive biopsies, and

:47:09.:47:17.

this could change that? I think this will be a big step change in how we

:47:18.:47:21.

diagnose prostate cancer. Previously it had been inaccurate and it might

:47:22.:47:26.

often find non-aggressive tumours which did not have to be treated.

:47:27.:47:29.

Men can have inappropriate treatment. It can also miss a lot of

:47:30.:47:35.

aggressive tumours. So how will this work, what's the difference? So, we

:47:36.:47:42.

think, by doing an MRI before the biopsy, we can actually see what is

:47:43.:47:46.

going on in the prostate. If a man has a negative MRI, he can avoid a

:47:47.:47:51.

biopsy, and in those men who have a suspicious MRI, the biopsy will be

:47:52.:47:57.

much more accurate. We can double the rate of diagnosing aggressive

:47:58.:48:00.

tumours, compared to what we're doing at the moment. A, on the face

:48:01.:48:07.

of it, you think, obviously, if you have any concerns, or maybe even

:48:08.:48:13.

not, have a skunk? Yes. So, the scan is definitely going to be the way

:48:14.:48:17.

forward. But at the moment, we have established that only about a third

:48:18.:48:23.

of men will routinely be offered this MRI before biopsy. That's

:48:24.:48:26.

really because of capacity constraints, both in terms of the

:48:27.:48:30.

scanners but also the radiologists and radiographers with the right

:48:31.:48:34.

training to administer it. And then also to have a clinical consensus

:48:35.:48:38.

and quality assurance, so that everyone agrees and they can rely on

:48:39.:48:42.

it. So, if someone watching this is in the position John was in some

:48:43.:48:47.

time ago, they're worried, if they say to their doctor, I have heard

:48:48.:48:50.

about this, the MRI scan is the answer, I'd like to do one of those,

:48:51.:48:55.

what will happen next? Well, in many areas, they will be able to have

:48:56.:49:00.

this new MRI, because it is available. But where it is not

:49:01.:49:04.

available, we are now pressing, we have done a Freedom of Information

:49:05.:49:07.

request and we know exactly where the scanner shortages and the

:49:08.:49:11.

radiologist shortages are, and we are now pressing for it to be a

:49:12.:49:15.

priority to address those shortages, so that as quickly as possible this

:49:16.:49:20.

can be made available to everyone. Dr Hashim Ahmed, what are your

:49:21.:49:24.

thoughts on that, about when it will be available across the whole of the

:49:25.:49:31.

NHS? It is a big issue. The study has shown that we can deliver this

:49:32.:49:35.

in the NHS. In the study, there were 11 NHS hospitals, and they were all

:49:36.:49:41.

doing high-quality MRIs, reported by high-quality radiologists and

:49:42.:49:45.

achieving really great accuracy results for the detection of cancer.

:49:46.:49:53.

So it is a big resource issue but I think it needs to be tackled early,

:49:54.:49:57.

and clinicians at the moment, urologists and hospitals, will need

:49:58.:50:00.

to look at their own centres and think about how they can change

:50:01.:50:03.

their pathways in order to deliver the clinical improvement that we

:50:04.:50:06.

have shown within this very robust study. John, can I give you one last

:50:07.:50:17.

thought - notwithstanding the availability, your message to men of

:50:18.:50:21.

a certain age who may have concerns? Don't be afraid, go and get a test,

:50:22.:50:25.

the sooner you get diagnosed, the better. And the sooner they start

:50:26.:50:30.

treating this disease which will affect one in eight men, the sooner

:50:31.:50:34.

they treat it, the sooner you will get better and have a very full and

:50:35.:50:39.

active life, and have a great handshake! I'm not sure we will

:50:40.:50:42.

shake hands to say goodbye! Thank you so much! That was a gentle one!

:50:43.:50:47.

Watch him cry through the next link! Time for the weather. Have you got a

:50:48.:51:01.

firm handshake? I would have to shake your hand so you can judge

:51:02.:51:05.

that! But it looks like I have got some heavy competition there! We

:51:06.:51:11.

have got some poor visibility in places this morning. This is when

:51:12.:51:21.

the sheep start to look like frosty ground, or the other way around! In

:51:22.:51:28.

Shetland, starting the day at 8 degrees. So we are starting the day

:51:29.:51:35.

upside down at the moment. But we do have a weather front here, and if

:51:36.:51:39.

you're close to that, we have got a lot of cloud to come for you. Mist

:51:40.:51:50.

and fog patches across parts of England and Wales to begin the day.

:51:51.:51:53.

Forget if you do not have that, you've got some sunshine. Here's

:51:54.:51:56.

your cloudy zone across Northern Ireland, much of northern England

:51:57.:52:01.

and southern Scotland. That shift is in no hurry to shift to cook north

:52:02.:52:07.

of that, in northern Scotland, you get some sunny spells. Southern

:52:08.:52:19.

parts of northern, you may just come out of the cloud this afternoon.

:52:20.:52:23.

Southern Scotland stays in the cloud. Because there's more sunshine

:52:24.:52:30.

around today, that means clearer skies tonight and more of us will

:52:31.:52:33.

get a frost tonight. And temperatures could be down to -6 in

:52:34.:52:42.

places. It looks like eastern parts of England will be most prone, but

:52:43.:52:46.

possibly just about everywhere going into Saturday morning. So it is a

:52:47.:52:54.

cold start to the weekend, with a good deal of sunshine to come. But

:52:55.:53:02.

an area of cloud starts to come back in from the north sea during the

:53:03.:53:07.

day. And it could turn a little bit drizzly, especially going into

:53:08.:53:11.

Saturday evening. Here is Saturday evening. Not as much frost going

:53:12.:53:17.

into Sunday morning because there's more cloud around. On Sunday, with

:53:18.:53:21.

more cloud there's the chance of getting some drizzly rain in

:53:22.:53:24.

northern England and southern Scotland. Jump hours into the

:53:25.:53:30.

south-west of the UK. Begin, single figure temperatures.

:53:31.:53:49.

I'm going to do my countdown clock thinking now for the inauguration. I

:53:50.:53:57.

think it's a Towers and six minutes until the moment when Donald Trump

:53:58.:54:01.

will become President Trump. -- I think it's eight hours. Many

:54:02.:54:08.

hundreds of thousands of people are expect to to descend on Washington

:54:09.:54:14.

to see the new president, the 45th president, in his inauguration.

:54:15.:54:23.

First, Breakfast's Jayne McCubbin looks at some of the things

:54:24.:54:25.

you might not have known about the

:54:26.:54:27.

businessman-turned-president Mr Trump.

:54:28.:54:29.

T is for Trump, but his ancestral name, Drumpf, is part-German,

:54:30.:54:46.

and part gold rush opportunist, part Scottish migrant mother.

:54:47.:54:49.

R is for real estate, the New York real estate he was born into.

:54:50.:54:55.

What began with a $1 million loan from Dad turned

:54:56.:54:58.

Four of his firms have filed for bankruptcy.

:54:59.:55:05.

At 70, he will be the oldest ever president, the first not

:55:06.:55:12.

to disclose his tax records and the first to have never held

:55:13.:55:15.

And it seems the first not to take a pet into the White House.

Military school at 13 to straighten out bad behaviour,

:55:22.:55:29.

say some, and money, lots of money.

:55:30.:55:37.

A man who could buy anything do anything.

:55:38.:55:40.

He claims he has never smoked, never drank and never done anything

:55:41.:55:43.

Does anyone really believe that story?

:55:44.:55:48.

I am also very much of a Germaphobe, by the way.

:55:49.:55:51.

The Simpsons first called it, back in 2000, the same year

:55:52.:56:11.

first had a stab as presidential candidate for the Reform Party.

:56:12.:56:13.

The man who once tried to trademark this phrase...

:56:14.:56:15.

That belonged to Ronald Reagan's campaign trail.

:56:16.:56:21.

But this is what brings him to Washington today and this

:56:22.:56:24.

is the pledge upon which he will soon be judged.

:56:25.:56:27.

Scott Lucas, professor of American studies at the University

:56:28.:56:34.

In the most appropriate shoes I've ever seen on a guest! Trainers with

:56:35.:56:47.

the American flag on! Scott, Tesche joining us. How are you feeling

:56:48.:56:53.

about today? It's such a big day. Everyone expecting change? You know,

:56:54.:56:59.

it is a big day for my native country. And it should be a day of

:57:00.:57:03.

celebration. But I'm saddened. I'm concerned. While still being

:57:04.:57:11.

resilient about who this man is and what he brings. I understand why

:57:12.:57:15.

people are angry and frustrated, those who voted for him, including

:57:16.:57:19.

my parents in Alabama. But I don't think he's actually there to help

:57:20.:57:22.

the forgotten, I think he has exploited them. This is a man who

:57:23.:57:27.

doesn't unify, he's been very divisive. Is there anything he could

:57:28.:57:31.

say to date to change that, though? No. I've got to be... A leopard does

:57:32.:57:39.

not change his spots overnight. This is a man whose very aggressive. It's

:57:40.:57:44.

helped him get very far. But he's very divisive. I've had to be honest

:57:45.:57:49.

with you, I've heard him demean women, demean the parents of a

:57:50.:57:55.

soldier who died in Iraq. I've heard him demean African-Americans,

:57:56.:57:58.

Hispanic Americans are. I've heard him demean people who have served

:57:59.:58:01.

the government. My faith is not in Trump, I've got to be honest, my

:58:02.:58:05.

faith is in that American system, with the Washington Monument, that

:58:06.:58:11.

it is strong enough to deal with this man. That's what it was

:58:12.:58:15.

designed for colour 250 years ago, that no-one man out of greed or

:58:16.:58:19.

naked power could corrupt what we've got. It is an interesting

:58:20.:58:26.

perspective you've given us. I'm thinking in a way that you are

:58:27.:58:29.

separating out your professional life, as someone who teaches about

:58:30.:58:33.

politics, from your personal opinion. How much you think

:58:34.:58:37.

Americans more general generally will be able to have that mindset?

:58:38.:58:43.

It is a very patriotic nation - is there a moment in time where he

:58:44.:58:45.

might even be able to encourage people to think, you know what, he

:58:46.:58:51.

is the president and maybe there is something he could bring which could

:58:52.:58:56.

be good? Sure. In studying all these decades, we think a president should

:58:57.:58:59.

be someone who comes in and talks to his advisers. Who says, I need to

:59:00.:59:04.

talk to you about climate change, about the economy, I need to bring

:59:05.:59:08.

in some ideas. And then I need to work with Congress. But between

:59:09.:59:13.

becoming president, Donald Trump flagged up, he's not going to do

:59:14.:59:17.

that. He said, it's going to be this way, to build a wall, Mexico will

:59:18.:59:24.

pay for it. One of the finest representatives I have ever known,

:59:25.:59:29.

he has called him a bad man. I am looking for someone that makes my

:59:30.:59:33.

country better. I am not anti-trump. Donald Trump as he is right now is

:59:34.:59:37.

not the person that I can believe in.

:59:38.:59:43.

For all the respect we can pay today, my respect is for the

:59:44.:59:48.

American people to hold him to account and making a better

:59:49.:59:53.

president. In 2012, I interviewed Donald Trump, not specifically about

:59:54.:59:57.

politics but it was something we covered, but it was a sit down

:59:58.:00:00.

interview where I asked about his life, one of the things was his

:00:01.:00:03.

thoughts on money and what makes him happy. Let's have a look at what he

:00:04.:00:08.

said to me at the time. If you enjoy it, it is not work. Chilling out for

:00:09.:00:18.

me would be work. If you told me, good, you have done a great job, it

:00:19.:00:22.

is over, you can go permanently on vacation now, within two days I

:00:23.:00:24.

wouldn't be very happy. Does your money make you happy? It doesn't

:00:25.:00:30.

make you happy, but there is a word, content, and what it does allow you

:00:31.:00:35.

to do is education for children, I can help other people. I employ

:00:36.:00:39.

thousands of thousands of people, I take care of those people. It does

:00:40.:00:43.

make you feel good in terms of a sense of achievement. If I'm worth

:00:44.:00:48.

over $8 billion, which is what people say, all it is is a

:00:49.:00:52.

scorecard, it doesn't mean anything. A sense of what he was saying there,

:00:53.:00:56.

no matter what you think of his policies and his views, he sounds

:00:57.:01:00.

like a hard worker, someone who will put in the effort, because he says

:01:01.:01:03.

he doesn't want to just sit around, he wants to make a difference. Never

:01:04.:01:09.

doubt Donald Trump is 24/7, whether it is on Twitter, at rallies, but

:01:10.:01:14.

realise he is not doing that to be benevolent. This may not be the

:01:15.:01:17.

place to talk about how his wealth has been exaggerated as part of his

:01:18.:01:29.

promotion, how his charity work has been promoted. Donald Trump is a

:01:30.:01:31.

salesman and when he talks to you and us he is selling first and

:01:32.:01:34.

foremost Donald Trump. You have to understand that, let's not think he

:01:35.:01:37.

is there for all of us, Trump is therefore trumped. Very interesting

:01:38.:01:39.

hearing your thoughts this morning. I am sure you will be watching like

:01:40.:01:42.

a lot of people this afternoon -- Donald Trump is there for Donald

:01:43.:01:49.

Trump. One of the other areas people will

:01:50.:01:53.

be interested in is what impact the presidency might have on British

:01:54.:01:57.

businesses. Sean is at an American owned company in Birmingham for us.

:01:58.:02:01.

Oh, and giving us a little tinkle on the piano, as well!

:02:02.:02:10.

Good morning! You know you are in a massive hotel, don't you, when it

:02:11.:02:14.

has got a grand piano in the lobby. This is the Hyatt hotel in

:02:15.:02:20.

Birmingham, a huge global chain, 100,000 employees, more than 1000 in

:02:21.:02:24.

America, so a big interest in what a troubled presidency might mean. We

:02:25.:02:30.

asked the boss what he thought. The inauguration of the president

:02:31.:02:33.

today and the clarity on Brexit earlier in the week goes towards

:02:34.:02:36.

giving that certainty that the investors have been looking for.

:02:37.:02:43.

Hyatt hotels are the most favoured for business travellers. Britain is

:02:44.:02:48.

a thriving business community. We believe we will remain so going

:02:49.:02:52.

forward into the future, and therefore we will continue to invest

:02:53.:02:57.

in Britain. Much stronger at the Breakfast table

:02:58.:03:02.

but at the piano, so we are joined here to talk about the effect of

:03:03.:03:06.

Donald Trump on the global economy. Andrew, you run a massive software

:03:07.:03:10.

company in the UK but you are American owned. How much are they

:03:11.:03:14.

talking about the impact of Donald Trump? Obviously an incoming

:03:15.:03:18.

president is an important topic for America as well of the world, but

:03:19.:03:25.

our investors focus on technology investing and they see technology as

:03:26.:03:30.

an important aspect in is uncertain times, and so they are confident in

:03:31.:03:35.

their investment in us and the British economy because of the

:03:36.:03:38.

technological advances we are making. Alison, you advise a lot of

:03:39.:03:43.

British businesses on how to grow in the US. Are there certain sectors

:03:44.:03:46.

that will find it more difficult now that Donald Trump is in charge? I'm

:03:47.:03:51.

not sure there are any sectors that will find it tougher, I think all

:03:52.:03:54.

sectors in this country need to focus on how they are going to keep

:03:55.:03:58.

growing. You cannot just sit back and wait for policy to take root and

:03:59.:04:11.

watch the implications. There is just not enough time for that, so

:04:12.:04:14.

businesses need to go and grow there. Went Donald Trump says

:04:15.:04:16.

America first, that means Britain is not going to get as good a deal? No,

:04:17.:04:20.

it means he will focus on those companies that have American jobs or

:04:21.:04:22.

are creating American jobs, whether they are American or British, so UK

:04:23.:04:24.

companies have great opportunities to create even more jobs in America.

:04:25.:04:30.

Andrew, you have a lot of clients in the UK, you rely on a good and

:04:31.:04:33.

strong economy. What do you think Donald Trump will do to the global

:04:34.:04:38.

economy? I think he is business minded so I'm hopeful that he

:04:39.:04:43.

continues to create good economic conditions, but, as I said, we are

:04:44.:04:48.

looking to be a strong British business helping our customers,

:04:49.:04:53.

helping them whether uncertain times, so hopefully we can

:04:54.:04:57.

contribute to success in the British economy. Thank you both very much.

:04:58.:05:01.

The tone has changed a little bit from those days after Donald Trump

:05:02.:05:05.

got elected, a bit more positivity in the business world map. We will

:05:06.:05:08.

see in the coming years whether his policies have any impact on the

:05:09.:05:12.

British economy. Thank you, John, your piano playing

:05:13.:05:16.

seems to have cleared almost the entire room!

:05:17.:05:22.

We'll be joined by Laura Main, who plays Shelagh in

:05:23.:05:25.

First, let's get a brief look at the headlines

:05:26.:07:01.

I'll be back at 1.30pm with the lunchtime news -

:07:02.:07:07.

hope you can join me then, bye-bye.

:07:08.:07:13.

It's been one of the BBC's most successful programmes in recent

:07:14.:07:16.

years - Call The Midwife returns to our screens this weekend.

:07:17.:07:20.

The sixth series enters the swinging '60s,

:07:21.:07:22.

and the characters have to deal with the arrival of

:07:23.:07:24.

In a moment we'll talk to Laura Main, who plays Shelagh Turner

:07:25.:07:28.

First, let's take a look at this weekend's episode.

:07:29.:07:38.

Pink for maternity, blue for postnatal.

:07:39.:07:39.

A ticket for each patient, to be seen in strictly numerical order.

:07:40.:07:47.

I'm sorry, Sister Ursula, but the traditional half-hourly

:07:48.:07:49.

But is "well enough" good enough, Mrs Turner?

:07:50.:07:52.

Before the Order's cottage hospital closed, there

:07:53.:07:54.

I shouldn't like the clinic here to be subjected to complaints.

:07:55.:08:02.

Oh, most mothers don't mind when things run on.

:08:03.:08:03.

They can attend talks and catch up with their friends

:08:04.:08:06.

In future, Mrs Turner, biscuits will be for fainters only.

:08:07.:08:12.

Eating for two should be about careful nutrition,

:08:13.:08:14.

Quite right, no self-indulgent! When you get into the character, I'm

:08:15.:08:30.

thinking classes, the uniform, when is the moment when you are on set

:08:31.:08:35.

and then, I am in the moment? Shelagh has been in so many guises,

:08:36.:08:40.

formerly Sister Bernadette, so from the habit to the traditional period

:08:41.:08:44.

when she was struggling with leaving the order, getting married, I have

:08:45.:08:47.

had the wedding dress, now the nurse's uniform, so I think the

:08:48.:08:51.

glasses is the key thing. I thought it was the glasses!

:08:52.:08:57.

You have been in it for so long and changed so much, you are one of my

:08:58.:08:59.

favourite characters because so much happens with you. What can we look

:09:00.:09:05.

forward to in this series? There is a lot of change, there is a bit of a

:09:06.:09:10.

change, I don't want to say too much, a bit more change personally

:09:11.:09:15.

for her, and really for all the characters as well. Heidi Thomas,

:09:16.:09:20.

the writer, is brilliant, constantly developing the world gently, you

:09:21.:09:24.

move forward a year with each series, so there are new issues to

:09:25.:09:27.

cover and all the characters just keep growing and I love being part

:09:28.:09:34.

of it. Inevitably because of the time and place it is, it delves into

:09:35.:09:38.

interesting territory because we have domestic abuse, for example, is

:09:39.:09:43.

one of the storylines coming up, we have contraception, because this is

:09:44.:09:48.

the early nineteen sixties? Yes, there are some really challenging

:09:49.:09:53.

issues that are discussed, and it's brilliant that they can be in a

:09:54.:09:59.

mainstream drama. We can cover topics, last year we had the

:10:00.:10:06.

thalidomide drug, and that really resonated strongly with the

:10:07.:10:08.

audience, and with people that had been affected, so we come back to

:10:09.:10:16.

that again, we meet the family and little baby Susan is now 18 months,

:10:17.:10:21.

learning to walk, the challenges of that. So it does touch on some

:10:22.:10:28.

really serious stuff that can be very emotional, but I think good to

:10:29.:10:37.

see on the screen. It is a drama that has real worldwide appeal as

:10:38.:10:39.

well, is that something that surprised you? I think so, yes, that

:10:40.:10:46.

first year, going on a little jaunt to LA to promote the show and

:10:47.:10:51.

thinking, gosh, is this going to translate? Apparently it is now in

:10:52.:10:57.

over 200 territories. I was sitting next to a lovely Chinese girl

:10:58.:11:01.

recently on the train and she was telling me how massive it is there,

:11:02.:11:05.

which was news to me! It is really exciting, it is universal themes, it

:11:06.:11:15.

is about family, love, community, and I think people all over the

:11:16.:11:18.

world respond to that. What has been so boring for me, you watch it and

:11:19.:11:23.

you think, it is a costume drama and it looks quite antiquated -- what is

:11:24.:11:32.

sobering, it looks so long ago, but I believe this series is set in

:11:33.:11:36.

1962, the gear I was born! I would have been one of those babies

:11:37.:11:42.

emerging into that world! I know! I'm not sure if I'm allowed to say,

:11:43.:11:46.

we are up for the National television awards, for best period

:11:47.:11:49.

drama, and my mum said, oh, period drama?! For her, it is her lifetime!

:11:50.:11:58.

A lot of people watching us this morning will absolutely remember

:11:59.:12:01.

things being like that, it is not like a dim and distant past, it is

:12:02.:12:06.

very much in living memory. Yes, and a few of the cast, Stephen McGann,

:12:07.:12:16.

he did a documentary recently, he was growing up in that time and

:12:17.:12:21.

remembering it, but, yes, it is still a historical piece.

:12:22.:12:29.

Historical, Charlie! Can I ask about Strictly? GDB Children In Need

:12:30.:12:32.

special, shall we have a look? I think we have got a clip of you --

:12:33.:12:37.

you did the Children In Need special.

:12:38.:12:42.

How did you feel doing it, watching it back now, was it brilliant? Oh, I

:12:43.:12:51.

mean, obviously! It was incredible to do, I am such a massive fan of

:12:52.:12:56.

the show, and to do something like that, and the Children In Need, it

:12:57.:13:03.

was this intensive week but absolutely brilliant, and I'm

:13:04.:13:06.

incredibly proud of my pud the glitter ball trophy. You went to

:13:07.:13:11.

drama school, so you have done some Dantz? At drama school, no, we had

:13:12.:13:17.

one hour a week at drama school, at age ten or 11 I started a bit of

:13:18.:13:24.

Dantz so apparently, well, there is always that argument about how much

:13:25.:13:28.

training, but I remember thinking, I was incredibly senior to be starting

:13:29.:13:34.

dance at ten or 11, and that is what "Performing and acting and being on

:13:35.:13:38.

stage. I always knew, I'm not a dancer, I can do a little bit of

:13:39.:13:43.

everything. I'm assuming no dancing in the role in Call The Midwife?!

:13:44.:13:48.

No, I have done syncing, though, that was a surprise!

:13:49.:13:52.

Multitalented! Thank you for joining us this morning.

:13:53.:13:54.

Call The Midwife is on BBC One on Sunday evening at 8pm.

:13:55.:13:57.

That's all from Breakfast this morning.

:13:58.:13:58.

Don't forget, live coverage of the presidential inauguration from 3pm

:13:59.:14:05.

this afternoon on the News Channel. Have

:14:06.:14:07.

JULIA SOMERVILLE: We asked you who's left you feeling ripped off

:14:08.:14:10.

and you came back with a catalogue of travel disasters.

:14:11.:14:15.

I thought it was a joke, I really did.
