This is Breakfast, with Sally Nugent and Ben Thompson

:00:00.:00:11.

Thousands of operations are being cancelled because there

:00:12.:00:14.

aren't enough beds, a new warning from surgeons

:00:15.:00:16.

In a joint letter to the Sunday Times, they say it's

:00:17.:00:25.

a "shocking waste" that highly-qualified surgeons are left

:00:26.:00:27.

"kicking their heels," but NHS England says only 1%

:00:28.:00:29.

The Speaker of the Commons, John Bercow, insists his

:00:30.:00:44.

impartiality has not been compromised as he comes under fire

:00:45.:00:46.

Personally, I voted to remain. I thought it was better to stay in the

:00:47.:01:02.

European Union rather than not. North Korea fires a ballistic

morning. Rain, sleet and snow on the way for England today. A cold wind.

:01:40.:01:45.

If it is too cold for you at the moment, I have some good news for

:01:46.:01:52.

you in the forecast. Join me in 15 minutes. Thank you for that.

:01:53.:01:54.

Thousands of operations are being cancelled with highly-skilled

:01:55.:01:58.

surgeons left "kicking their heels" because of a shortage of hospital

:01:59.:02:01.

beds, according to the Royal College of Surgeons and the organisation

:02:02.:02:04.

In a joint letter to the Sunday Times, they argue that

:02:05.:02:08.

a lack of funding for health and social care in England

:02:09.:02:11.

is leading to what they call a "shocking waste" and damaging

:02:12.:02:14.

NHS England says only 1% of operations are cancelled.

:02:15.:02:18.

Our health correspondent, Dominic Hughes, has more.

:02:19.:02:25.

Over the past few weeks, the BBC to documentary series, Hospital, has

:02:26.:02:33.

demonstrated how a shortage of beds contributed to the pressure on the

:02:34.:02:38.

hills service. This can lead to long waits for those needing to be

:02:39.:02:41.

admitted to Accident and Emergency departments, but also, those needing

:02:42.:02:46.

plant surgery. I feel I spend as much energy on trying to organise

:02:47.:02:51.

and manage beds to the flow of patients within the hospital to

:02:52.:02:55.

allow us to do what we want to get on with, which is to operate. The

:02:56.:03:01.

programme showed how if beds are not available for patients to recover in

:03:02.:03:06.

safely, the operations simply cannot go ahead. Now the royal college of

:03:07.:03:11.

surgeons and the NHS body that represents NHS trusts says this is

:03:12.:03:16.

damaging efforts to improve productivity with surgeons left

:03:17.:03:22.

licking their heels. It is not good for the staff and it is not good for

:03:23.:03:27.

the patience and it is not good for the efficiency of the NHS. The

:03:28.:03:32.

latest figures from NHS England reveal more than 95% of beds were

:03:33.:03:37.

occupied last week, well above the 85% that is regarded as the safe

:03:38.:03:41.

limit. The problem is closely linked to delays in providing adequate care

:03:42.:03:47.

outside of hospital, especially for frail and elderly patients once they

:03:48.:03:50.

are ready to be discharged. Today, hospital managers and doctors say

:03:51.:03:57.

fixing the NHS means fixing social care, and it will be needed for the

:03:58.:04:01.

extraordinarily tough winter which is not over yet. Dominic Hughes, BBC

:04:02.:04:05.

News. NHS England say "The level

:04:06.:04:06.

of cancellations remains low at just 1% of the millions of operations

:04:07.:04:09.

performed in the NHS each year." The Speaker of the House of Commons,

:04:10.:04:12.

John Bercow has insisted that his impartiality has not been

:04:13.:04:15.

compromised after a video emerged showing him making political

:04:16.:04:18.

comments including saying that he voted Remain

:04:19.:04:20.

in the EU Referendum. The Sunday Telegraph is reported

:04:21.:04:22.

he made the remarks to students at Reading University,

:04:23.:04:25.

just three days before saying he would veto a parliamentary

:04:26.:04:27.

address by President Donald Trump. The UK Parliament website

:04:28.:04:30.

states that "speakers must This may not be popular with some

:04:31.:04:49.

people in this audience, personally, I voted to remain. I thought was

:04:50.:04:52.

better remain in the European Union than not, partly for economic

:04:53.:04:59.

reasons, part of being within a trading bloc, and because it is

:05:00.:05:05.

better to be part of a bigger power bloc in the world.

:05:06.:05:07.

An ally of the Speaker has said that the EU Referendum was an issue

:05:08.:05:10.

that divided political parties and that Mr Bercow was always

:05:11.:05:13.

"scrupulously fair" when chairing debates.

:05:14.:05:14.

We'll get more on this story from our political correspondent,

:05:15.:05:17.

14 retired bishops have written an open letter criticising

:05:18.:05:34.

the church's stance on same-sex marriages.

:05:35.:05:36.

The Church of England last month said it did not support gay

:05:37.:05:39.

marriage, a position announced after three years of conversations

:05:40.:05:42.

with lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Christians,

:05:43.:05:44.

who the bishops now claim have been betrayed.

:05:45.:05:46.

The decision will be debated at the General Synod on Wednesday,

:05:47.:05:49.

Last month, the Church of England decided its position on the divisive

:05:50.:05:54.

issue of sexuality. It has followed three years of so-called shared

:05:55.:05:57.

conversations, and stated that marriage should only be between a

:05:58.:06:01.

man and a woman. The church said all potential clergy, gay and straight,

:06:02.:06:04.

should be asked about their sexual conduct and their lifestyle. By 14

:06:05.:06:09.

retired bishops have today expressed their concern that the views of gay,

:06:10.:06:15.

lesbian, and bisexual members have been ignored. In an unusual move,

:06:16.:06:19.

they have written an open letter to the Church of England, led by the

:06:20.:06:25.

former Bishop of Worcester. They entered those negotiations knowing

:06:26.:06:28.

they would have to reveal themselves. In a sense, that might

:06:29.:06:33.

carry a price in terms of their life and their career, their ministry,

:06:34.:06:37.

what was offered to them, how they were regarded. In the nonetheless

:06:38.:06:42.

did that. And they feel that what has come out here is a betrayal in

:06:43.:06:46.

the specific sense that their voice is not heard. The Church of England

:06:47.:06:52.

said the shared conversations were not changing people's views, but

:06:53.:06:56.

recognising Jesus in people with whom the participants disagreed. The

:06:57.:07:02.

divisive debate over sexuality will continue, and the church's governing

:07:03.:07:12.

general synod will meet next week in London. BBC News.

:07:13.:07:18.

North Korea has fired a ballistic missile in the first such test

:07:19.:07:21.

since Donald Trump took office as US President.

:07:22.:07:23.

Speaking at a joint press conference during a visit to America

:07:24.:07:26.

by Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Ahbay Mr Trump assured him "America

:07:27.:07:29.

stands behind Japan, its great ally, 100%."

:07:30.:07:31.

With the latest, our reporter, Kevin Kim, is in Seoul

:07:32.:07:34.

A very good morning to you. Japanese officials have called this a clear

:07:35.:07:40.

provocation of Japan. What do we make of the timing with Shinzo Abe's

:07:41.:07:44.

visit? I believe most North Korea observers may think that the timing

:07:45.:07:47.

of the missile launch may not have been a coincidence, as North Korea

:07:48.:07:53.

often carries out such tests close to political events and

:07:54.:07:57.

anniversaries. What many North Korea observers are worried about is the

:07:58.:08:01.

direction President Trump's relations may be going with Kim

:08:02.:08:06.

Jong-un. North Korea has warned its nuclear programme and long-range

:08:07.:08:10.

nuclear capabilities being able to strike the United States will near

:08:11.:08:14.

completion. President Trump has made it clear that he will not let this

:08:15.:08:19.

happen. If Pyongyang begins to test the boundaries of Donald Trump's

:08:20.:08:24.

North Korea policies, the fear is that a miskicked elation of

:08:25.:08:28.

intentions may lead to escalation is, which could ultimately lead to

:08:29.:08:36.

real military complication. In times of difficulty is, President Trump,

:08:37.:08:43.

will he be able to take measured steps over emotional responses? That

:08:44.:08:48.

has been the conversation of the region. Interesting to talk to you

:08:49.:08:54.

about that. We will stay a cross that news.

:08:55.:09:02.

14 sailors have been rescued by a Royal Navy warship

:09:03.:09:05.

after their racing yacht was damaged in a storm in the Atlantic Ocean.

:09:06.:09:09.

HMS Dragon, the Navy's Type II Destroyer, diverted 500 miles

:09:10.:09:11.

to save 13 Britons and one American on Saturday afternoon.

:09:12.:09:14.

The sailors only suffered minor injuries but their 60-foot yacht

:09:15.:09:17.

lost its mast and rudder in the bad weather.

:09:18.:09:19.

More than 200 pilot whales that were stranded on a beach

:09:20.:09:22.

in New Zealand have re-floated themselves and swum away.

:09:23.:09:25.

Another 17 were returned to the sea by teams of volunteers.

:09:26.:09:28.

About 350 whales died in two days at the beach

:09:29.:09:30.

Homophobic abuse in sport should result in immediate action,

:09:31.:09:35.

including lengthy stadium bans, say MPs in a new report.

:09:36.:09:37.

The Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee says football clubs

:09:38.:09:40.

in particular are not doing enough, and should be taking

:09:41.:09:43.

This is the kind of homophobic chants in a group of MPs say is

:09:44.:10:03.

allowed to pass unchallenged to Waffen SS. A report published by the

:10:04.:10:07.

Culture, Media, and Sport Select Committee finds that attitudes

:10:08.:10:11.

towards gay people in sport are out of step with the rest of society.

:10:12.:10:16.

Particular attention is given to football. The rhino openly gay

:10:17.:10:20.

players in British football league is. . -- there are no. Winning to

:10:21.:10:26.

train people to listen out for homophobic behaviour and to ban

:10:27.:10:31.

people from engaging in homophobic abuse. But we also have evidence to

:10:32.:10:36.

suggest that clubs need to look into themselves as well. That sometimes

:10:37.:10:42.

dressing rooms can have this language. The Football Association

:10:43.:10:49.

say they welcome this report and tackling this is one of their

:10:50.:10:52.

priority is. Criticism is not limited to football. The MPs said

:10:53.:11:02.

they were upset by the presence of Tyson Fury on sportsperson of the

:11:03.:11:09.

year in 2016. He said it was based on his sporting achievements had

:11:10.:11:12.

made it clear it was not an endorsement of his personal views.

:11:13.:11:16.

It is not all bad news. The report praises the two-year bans on those

:11:17.:11:27.

who through slander at this referee last year. BBC News.

:11:28.:11:31.

A dash cam has captured the moment 90 mile per hour winds caused

:11:32.:11:35.

a truck to blow over onto a highway patrol car in Wyoming.

:11:36.:11:38.

The troopers were responding to another traffic

:11:39.:11:42.

related incident when the truck tipped over, but luckily

:11:43.:11:44.

Ouch! The two passengers aboard were also unharmed. Incredible pictures.

:11:45.:11:55.

And that is just the strength of the wind doing that. You can see it.

:11:56.:11:57.

Terrifying. San Francisco was a sea of floats,

:11:58.:12:13.

costumes, lion dancers and marching bands last night as the city's

:12:14.:12:16.

Chinese New Year parade took place. The city has been holding the annual

:12:17.:12:19.

event since the 1860s, both to mark the start

:12:20.:12:22.

of the Lunar New Year and to celebrate

:12:23.:12:25.

tradition and culture. Among the highlights was a 268-feet

:12:26.:12:26.

Golden Dragon that needed a team of more than 100 people to carry

:12:27.:12:29.

it through the city. Isn't that beautiful? I am lucky

:12:30.:12:36.

enough to say I have been there to that event. Amazing. It is beautiful

:12:37.:12:39.

and really spectacular. 100 people carrying that dragon? Gorgeous! How

:12:40.:12:42.

do they stay co-ordinated? Good question. Let us look at the front

:12:43.:12:48.

pages this Sunday morning. The Observer. A picture on all of the

:12:49.:12:54.

papers. England's victory over Wales in Cardiff yesterday. The headline,

:12:55.:12:59.

a story we discussed earlier. A church faces new split over

:13:00.:13:07.

attitudes to gay relationships. They will discuss it soon as there is

:13:08.:13:18.

controversy over that controversy. Donald Trump and the state visit to

:13:19.:13:25.

the UK. They are suggesting that Donald Trump will actually not speak

:13:26.:13:28.

to Parliament and will, in their quote, speak to the people in a

:13:29.:13:35.

stadium rally at his UK visit with profits going to an appeal. The same

:13:36.:13:43.

story we are discussing this morning. John Bercow. He went to a

:13:44.:13:49.

university earlier and stated publicly that he voted remain and

:13:50.:13:53.

that immigration was good news for the UK. Once again, that picture of

:13:54.:13:58.

yesterday's rugby in Cardiff. The front page of the Sunday Times is

:13:59.:14:03.

interesting. A fantastic picture yesterday, though, maybe not if you

:14:04.:14:07.

are Welsh to be heartbreaking for them. The main story is the Labour

:14:08.:14:14.

search. They are looking for secret succession planning. We had Jeremy

:14:15.:14:19.

Corbyn on the sofa a few days ago saying there are no plans for him to

:14:20.:14:23.

stand down. He is not looking ahead to a future of not being Labour

:14:24.:14:27.

Party leader. But this leaked report shows that the Labour Party will

:14:28.:14:32.

potentially be facing a disaster in the polls should there be an

:14:33.:14:38.

election. A quick look at The Sunday Mirror with entirely different news

:14:39.:14:46.

from last week. Tara who passed away last Wednesday. She spoke to friends

:14:47.:14:52.

earlier predicting her death. Much more on the papers coming up in the

:14:53.:14:57.

programme. Great stories from inside the papers later on. Exactly.

:14:58.:14:59.

Lattimore to come. You're watching

:15:00.:15:05.

Breakfast from BBC News. The main stories this morning:

:15:06.:15:07.

Surgeons and hospital trusts say thousands of operations are being

:15:08.:15:09.

cancelled because of a shortage Commons Speaker John Bercow insists

:15:10.:15:17.

his impartiality has not been affected after he revealed he had

:15:18.:15:19.

voted Remain in the EU referendum. More than 200 stranded

:15:20.:15:21.

whales in New Zealand We'll find out about the race

:15:22.:15:26.

against time to get the rest back Here's Matt with a look

:15:27.:15:31.

at this morning's weather. Earlier on I had a little look at a

:15:32.:15:43.

weather forecast, just about half an hour ago, and saw lots of little

:15:44.:15:48.

snowflakes? There are few snowflakes once again.

:15:49.:15:55.

Not quite lots. Not quite snowman building weather on but there will

:15:56.:16:00.

be quite a bit of snow around today. Yesterday it was one of those days

:16:01.:16:03.

where I could have stayed indoors. You might want to do the same today.

:16:04.:16:10.

The winds are stronger. The raw wind blowing in Scotland, northern

:16:11.:16:13.

England, Wales and the Midlands in particular and a mixture of rain and

:16:14.:16:18.

snow. Much like yesterday. At the moment most of it is rain. You can

:16:19.:16:23.

see on the charts it is in northern England, the Midlands, the

:16:24.:16:27.

south-east and east Anglia, but there is snow mixing in with that

:16:28.:16:31.

rain across parts of east Anglia. That will drift northwards into the

:16:32.:16:35.

east Midlands. Snow mainly confined to the hills, but some at lower

:16:36.:16:39.

levels. That will push towards the peak District and Pennines later.

:16:40.:16:43.

Elsewhere it is hit and miss rain, sleet and snow. The Windies chilli

:16:44.:16:47.

and will get stronger through the day. The breezy northern parts of

:16:48.:16:54.

Wales. -- wind is chilli. Not as wet in Scotland and Northern Ireland.

:16:55.:16:58.

Many starting dry. In the west of Northern Ireland and across northern

:16:59.:17:02.

parts of Scotland this is where we will have a bit of sunshine at

:17:03.:17:06.

times. There will be something brighter in the south-east of the

:17:07.:17:10.

country. Elsewhere lots of cloud. The snow becomes more of a feature

:17:11.:17:15.

in the Pennines. It is here there will be a few centimetres of snow

:17:16.:17:22.

falling giving a covering in places. Either side of the country should

:17:23.:17:26.

stay largely dry. We finish with wintry weather in a central swathe

:17:27.:17:31.

of the country, but tonight we have less cold air pushing up from the

:17:32.:17:35.

south. That will push towards the south-west of the country in

:17:36.:17:41.

particular. Elsewhere, much as it was last night. Maybe a frost in

:17:42.:17:46.

north-west Scotland to start Monday. Monday by and large a dry day. Misty

:17:47.:17:51.

over the hills in the north, though the rain and drizzle in east of

:17:52.:17:54.

Scotland. James Gray in the east of England. -- staying grey. Still a

:17:55.:18:01.

windy day, with gusty winds in west Wales and south-west England.

:18:02.:18:05.

Temperatures could hit double figures. Still cold elsewhere.

:18:06.:18:08.

Temperatures on the rise for the rest of the week. I think your job

:18:09.:18:15.

is safe! I got it spectacularly wrong.

:18:16.:18:19.

But there will be snow and there could be some snowman is.

:18:20.:18:23.

Not completely wrong. Thank you. Double figures in

:18:24.:18:24.

Plymouth? By moving to Plymouth! We'll be back with a summary

:18:25.:18:27.

of today's news at 6:30am. Now it's time for Film Review

:18:28.:18:30.

with Mark Kermode and Jane Hill. Hello and welcome to

:18:31.:18:46.

The Film Review on BBC News. To take us through this week's

:18:47.:18:50.

cinema releases is Mark Kermode. We have the 20th Century Women,

:18:51.:18:56.

a new film starring Annette Bening. We have the Lego Batman movie,

:18:57.:19:07.

which pretty much does what it says And Fences, a major

:19:08.:19:10.

awards contender. Let's start with 20th

:19:11.:19:16.

Century Womenm, the latest It's an interesting film,

:19:17.:19:21.

set in California at the end A young boy facing an uncertain

:19:22.:19:27.

adulthood, surrounded by strong women of different ages,

:19:28.:19:33.

who both inspire and also not least his free-spirited mother,

:19:34.:19:35.

brilliantly played by Annette Thinking that you know

:19:36.:19:38.

everything that's going on. No, I just think that, you know,

:19:39.:19:49.

having your heart broken is a tremendous way

:19:50.:19:52.

to learn about the world. ..as happy as you thought you'd be

:19:53.:20:00.

when you were my age? You don't ask people

:20:01.:20:13.

questions like that. Wondering if you're happy is a great

:20:14.:20:17.

short cut to just being depressed. And I'm afraid I

:20:18.:20:28.

haven't seen it yet. It has these natural performances,

:20:29.:20:38.

partly because they had time to rehearse and get

:20:39.:20:47.

to know the characters. Secondly, these are characters

:20:48.:20:49.

you want to spend time You want to know how

:20:50.:20:52.

their lives work out. The film has texture,

:20:53.:20:59.

you feel like at any point the camera could go out of the car,

:21:00.:21:05.

out of the house and into the street and the world would be

:21:06.:21:09.

complete around it. It evokes a world which

:21:10.:21:11.

is in many ways lost. It's back to time which now seems

:21:12.:21:14.

so distant, and yet the issues it It's not plot driven,

:21:15.:21:19.

it's absolutely to do with moments, The narrative flips back and forth

:21:20.:21:23.

in time to some extent. When I first started watching it,

:21:24.:21:29.

I knew nothing of what to expect, But I was drawn into their world,

:21:30.:21:35.

into their characters. I really loved it, I can't

:21:36.:21:41.

wait to see it again, But is it going to be disparagingly

:21:42.:21:44.

called a women's film? I don't even know

:21:45.:21:49.

what that phrase means. In the past it was a term

:21:50.:21:55.

that was used for popular movies. Because it used to be that females

:21:56.:21:59.

audiences were the majority. So when people spoke about women's

:22:00.:22:03.

pictures what they meant was something would be

successful and a blockbuster. Believe me, anybody could see

:22:08.:22:12.

of the Lego Batman movie. It sounded like a stupid idea but it

:22:13.:22:16.

turned out to be very I'm in my 50s and I laughed

:22:17.:22:26.

all the way through. So this is now Lego

:22:27.:22:33.

Batman is a spin-off. It is about Lego Batman,

:22:34.:22:36.

a complete narcissist, completely tied up in himself,

:22:37.:22:38.

and through the movie he has to learn to have relationships

:22:39.:22:41.

with people - with Robin, his butler, and The Joker,

:22:42.:22:43.

who is desperate for him to admit that he is a special villain,

that they have a special And what is great about this movie,

:22:49.:22:51.

the visuals are terrific, I kept wanting to hold

the frame and say, stop! There are so many jokes in this one

:22:57.:23:00.

frame, they're going by too fast, I can't keep up with

:23:01.:23:04.

the speed of these jokes! It's smart, it is cine

:23:05.:23:08.

literate, for all There's loads of exciting stuff

:23:09.:23:11.

happening on the screen. For older viewers, there are jokes

:23:12.:23:16.

about the '60s Batman Believe me, first you need

:23:17.:23:18.

to see The Lego Movie, because that is

:23:19.:23:22.

terrific and better than this. The Lego Batman movie is very

:23:23.:23:24.

surprisingly tiptop stuff Well, I'm already feeling

:23:25.:23:29.

overwhelmed by those two. I haven't seen the film,

:23:30.:23:33.

but I've seen the play, on which it's based,

:23:34.:23:39.

so I'm interested. Well, I have seen the film

:23:40.:23:43.

and I feel like I want An adaptation of

:23:44.:23:46.

a play from the '50s. Denzel Washington stars

:23:47.:23:51.

in and directs it. He works in the sanitation

:23:52.:23:53.

department and he brings home his frustrations

:23:54.:24:00.

from his work, from his life. They all come out in

:24:01.:24:02.

the home encounters. The film has got four Oscar

:24:03.:24:04.

nominations, including Best Supporting Actress

:24:05.:24:06.

and here's why. You're not listening to me,

:24:07.:24:08.

I'm trying to explain it It's not easy for me to admit that

:24:09.:24:12.

I've been standing in the same place I've given 18 years of my life

:24:13.:24:19.

to standing in the same spot as you. Don't you think I've ever

:24:20.:24:31.

wanted other things? Don't you think I had

:24:32.:24:33.

dreams and hopes? And that scene is so

:24:34.:24:35.

powerful in the play. The only problem is this -

:24:36.:24:46.

that the film feels very stagey. There are plays that have been

:24:47.:24:51.

adapted for the screen that start What this feels like is something

:24:52.:24:54.

that has taken the stage play Obviously there are slight

:24:55.:24:59.

differences, but it never felt It felt like really great writing,

:25:00.:25:05.

very relevant issues, terrific committed performances that

:25:06.:25:09.

you could absolutely get behind. But it never took flight

:25:10.:25:12.

as a piece of film-making. For me, that's a problem,

:25:13.:25:18.

because if you're going take a stage play away from the stage and put it

:25:19.:25:22.

somewhere else, you have to do You really feel you wish

:25:23.:25:25.

you were seeing it live on stage, because particularly

:25:26.:25:29.

with the larger speeches, a theatrical production, as opposed

:25:30.:25:31.

to a cinematic production. Because the screenplay was written

:25:32.:25:37.

by August Wilson before he died, I guess it's a different

:25:38.:25:40.

writing for the screen, And it's a different thing directing

:25:41.:25:45.

that work for the screen. I always thought the classic screen

:25:46.:25:53.

adaptation of plays, they understand the language

:25:54.:25:56.

of cinema first and foremost. This is clearly a huge

:25:57.:25:59.

reverence for the stage play, I just don't think it's

:26:00.:26:02.

as cinematic as it needs to be. Despite the fact that it's great

:26:03.:26:08.

writing, really solid performances and great individual moments,

:26:09.:26:11.

but as a piece of cinema it Coming up to the Baftas on Sunday,

:26:12.:26:14.

it's something that might win awards generally for the acting,

:26:15.:26:18.

rather than anything else? My feeling is that that's

:26:19.:26:21.

where its heart resides. The best thing out in the cinemas

:26:22.:26:23.

at the moment is Toni Erdman. It's terrific, it sounds

:26:24.:26:31.

so unlikely, a three-hour German black comedy, a standout performance

:26:32.:26:40.

about father, daughter estrangement. A father turns up at his daughter's

:26:41.:26:48.

place of work pretending to be a life coach, and she

:26:49.:26:52.

cannot get rid of him. It is really edgy and really

:26:53.:26:57.

funny and really painful It is about to be remade

:26:58.:27:00.

starring Jack Nicholson. It's perfect as it is,

:27:01.:27:03.

leave it alone! I have seen the trailer and

:27:04.:27:09.

the trailer itself is interminable. I am somebody who believes

:27:10.:27:17.

in cutting to the bone, less is more, but in the case

:27:18.:27:30.

of Toni Erdman, there's nothing I know loads of people who have seen

the trailer and not been put off it. OK, only because you have told me.

Tell us about the DVD. It's a story about a young doctor

you can reassess things that was perhaps

overlooked the first time. It is a better film

than critics gave it credit It is a thriller, but it

the Royal College of Surgeons and the organisation that

the Sunday Times, they argue that a lack of funding for health

people in this audience. Personally, I vote to remain. I thought it was

economic reasons, being part of a trade bloc, and for all the

England certainly got it right yesterday, Richard. They did. Good

morning. I think Wales were on top for a lot of that game. They were

:34:32.:34:39.

leading them on. They used all that get out of free gel cards. 16 wins

:34:40.:34:48.

in a row for England. Eddie Jones's side were less than five minutes

:34:49.:34:50.

from defeat against Wales. That was until Elliot Daly got

:34:51.:34:54.

a late winning score. Yesterday's other game

:34:55.:34:57.

was a rather different story. Ireland scoring nine tries

against Italy in a 63-10 Our correspondent,

:35:00.:35:01.

Joe Wilson, reports. Cardiff, the roof open and the heat

on. This game would stretch every emotion. With all the modern

:35:15.:35:18.

scientific preparation, rugby still often comes down to brute strength

:35:19.:35:25.

and determination. Ben with the first try. With half-time

:35:26.:35:28.

approaching, perfect timing. He has scored! Now, is that what you came

:35:29.:35:35.

for? The second half, England waiting to pounce. But no!

:35:36.:35:46.

Intercepted. Dan! A kick, a chase, a race. Breathless Daley the defender.

:35:47.:35:54.

But Wales was still ahead. Four minutes to play and England had the

:35:55.:35:58.

ball. They had to run. They had to find space. Elliot, the last-ditch

:35:59.:36:05.

defender, now the fine finisher. Again, somehow snatching the game

:36:06.:36:10.

21- 16. Unbelievable. I love the belief in the team. I think that is

:36:11.:36:16.

what is exciting about hopefully what is to come, you know? It is not

:36:17.:36:20.

the finished article. Hopefully we get better and better. England's

:36:21.:36:25.

remarkable winning run continues. And to win here with a win like that

:36:26.:36:33.

must feel significant. Well, after a first week defeat, Ireland dared not

:36:34.:36:38.

lose again. Rome, the perfect place for a break. A hat-trick against

:36:39.:36:44.

Italy, including this fourth try before half-time. A bonus point

:36:45.:36:49.

Craig Gilroy got three tries in 11 minutes, 63- ten. Never mind these

victories. The Ireland coach would love one. BBC News.

Scotland play France this afternoon looking to make it two wins from two

:36:58.:37:01.

after their impressive display against Ireland last weekend.

:37:02.:37:03.

They haven't won in Paris though since 1999 and know that the side

:37:04.:37:07.

they face this year will be desperate for a win

:37:08.:37:09.

after their defeat to England in their opening match.

:37:10.:37:14.

It will be hurting from the weekend. We know how tough it is going to be.

:37:15.:37:24.

Having all those boys coming at me, it is part of the support. We know

:37:25.:37:32.

what job we are going to have to do. We are ready for the game, I think,

:37:33.:37:36.

though we don't know what the result will be.

:37:37.:37:37.

England made it two wins from two in the women's Six Nations.

:37:38.:37:40.

They scored 11 tries as they thrashed Wales 63-0

England secured a bonus point after just 22 minutes.

:37:44.:37:46.

Lydia Thompson grabbing her hat-trick here.

:37:47.:37:48.

Well, Scotland, like Wales were thrashed in their Six Nations match.

:37:49.:37:54.

They were well beaten by a rampant French side who scored 55 unanswered

:37:55.:37:58.

points on their way to a comfortable victory.

:37:59.:38:02.

Away from the six nations there were two matches

:38:03.:38:04.

Leicester Tigers are back up to fitfth place after a bonus-point

While defending champions Saracens lost 24 points to 18 at Worcester.

only their second league win of the season.

Liverpool are up to fourth in the Premier League,

:38:21.:38:23.

after a 2-0 victory over Spurs at Anfield.

:38:24.:38:25.

Sadio Mane opened the scoring for the Reds after fifteen minutes.

:38:26.:38:28.

And it took just a couple of minutes more for him to add his second.

:38:29.:38:32.

It's Liverpool's first victory in the league in 2017.

:38:33.:38:35.

Spurs remain nine points behind leaders, Chelsea.

:38:36.:38:45.

This, all this being nervous, and all that stuff around. It could have

:38:46.:38:52.

happened is that we don't score in the first situation. But they were

:38:53.:38:58.

really positive. The crowd was fantastic. It was a real joy to play

:38:59.:39:02.

here tonight. It was a wonderful, wonderful sign for the whole

:39:03.:39:04.

Liverpool family. Arsenal, meanwhile, are now level

:39:05.:39:07.

on points with Spurs in second after a controversial

:39:08.:39:10.

win over Hull City. They took the lead through

:39:11.:39:12.

Alexis Sanchez before half time but replays show the ball

:39:13.:39:15.

going in off his hand. The goal stood and he then added

:39:16.:39:17.

a late penalty to make it 2-0 We played resilient and focused and

:39:18.:39:31.

organised, but a little bit behind because we were under big pressure

:39:32.:39:35.

to win the game. They played well. We need to be focused until the end

:39:36.:39:40.

to get away with a positive result. You could see why we have made

:39:41.:39:48.

results against big teams recently. -- they.

:39:49.:39:50.

Elsewhere, Manchester United beat Watford 2-0.

:39:51.:39:51.

Sunderland remain bottom after losing 4-0 at Southampton.

Two games in the Premier League today.

Champions Leicester City are at Swansea City later as both

:40:05.:40:07.

teams continue to face the threat of relegation.

:40:08.:40:09.

Before that, leaders, Chelsea, are away at Burnley as they look

:40:10.:40:12.

to increase the gap at the top to 12 points.

:40:13.:40:14.

If we think that, umm, we have nine points and we are very close to

:40:15.:40:26.

winning the title, it is a great mistake, it is a big mistake. There

:40:27.:40:32.

are 14 games to play. There are, I repeat, five teams. Six teams can

:40:33.:40:39.

fight until the end to win the title.

:40:40.:40:40.

Celtic scored six against Inverness Callie Thistle to reach

:40:41.:40:43.

Mikael Lustig put Celtic ahead before Moussa Dembele scored three.

:40:44.:40:47.

It's now hat-tricks in back-to-back games for the young French striker.

:40:48.:40:50.

Then captain Scott Brown rounded off the rout in injury time.

:40:51.:41:01.

Also through to the quarter finals are St Mirren,

Ayr United and Clyde drew, as did Dunfermline and Hamilton,

Newcastle are back on top of the Championship this morning

:41:12.:41:18.

A goal from Aleksandar Mitrovic just before half time was enough to give

It means Anne Keothavong's team progress to a further play-off

in April, which could see them reach the competition's second tier,

:42:04.:42:06.

GB fell at the same stage in 2012 and 2013.

:42:07.:42:10.

Keothavong was part of that squad and desperately wants a home tie.

:42:11.:42:18.

I was just thinking, is there any way we can fix it so that we have a

:42:19.:42:25.

home tie? Because I know as part of the team, two times previously, when

:42:26.:42:29.

we were able to get out of this group but we never got that home

:42:30.:42:33.

tie, so I am desperate to get this. Hopefully that, you know, the draw

:42:34.:42:40.

works in our favour. I know all the girls want to perform in front of a

:42:41.:42:44.

patriotic crowd. Yeah, I guess he will just have to wait until

:42:45.:42:48.

it. Ryan Day is through to the final

The Culture, Media, and Sport Committee says a zero

Football clubs, in particular have been criticised for not taking

Paul Amann from Kop Outs, Liverpool Football Club's lesbian,

:44:16.:44:19.

gay, bisexual, and transgender fan club joins us now.

:44:20.:44:25.

It is nice to see you. Welcome to the programme. Good morning. I

:44:26.:44:31.

imagine you welcome this proposal. Proposals to get tougher on fans who

:44:32.:44:38.

shout homophobic abuse. I am interested in how bad a problem it

:44:39.:44:42.

is. We have seen a lot of problems with racism. Of similar proportions.

:44:43.:44:47.

I am mixed race and welcome the fact that action has been taken over many

:44:48.:44:52.

decades in football and other sports. Homophobia in football is a

:44:53.:44:56.

very serious issue in football today. It is telling that there

:44:57.:45:03.

hasn't been a key out player in decades. We need to work with groups

:45:04.:45:11.

to make sure what we are doing is not just about sticks but also

:45:12.:45:18.

carrots and support. how challenging this is the police? As challenging

:45:19.:45:26.

as racism. It is very sad that the ground regulations have been in

:45:27.:45:30.

place for many years and are the a few clubs, like Liverpool, have

:45:31.:45:34.

implemented those relations to treat homophobia as seriously as racism.

:45:35.:45:39.

What has to come first? You touched on the fact that there are so few

:45:40.:45:45.

rational footballers, in fact none at the moment, how does that change

:45:46.:45:56.

the perception of the game? -- few homosexual. I think there's a very

:45:57.:45:59.

mixed picture across football. You've got a lot of clubs like

:46:00.:46:04.

Liverpool and even Arsenal and Verse and Chelsea supporting the forming

:46:05.:46:11.

of LGBT fan groups and taking a stand against homophobia, taking

:46:12.:46:18.

part in the rainbow laces events and so forth, which is fantastic because

:46:19.:46:23.

it sends a clear signal that this sort of behaviour needs to be wiped

:46:24.:46:27.

out. It is important for the clubs to lead the way? They've got their

:46:28.:46:32.

role to play, but it should be a much broader based, definitive

:46:33.:46:37.

position and the enforcement of the ground regulations is long overdue

:46:38.:46:42.

and Dick that the MPs are waking up to this. -- fantastic. They should

:46:43.:46:46.

have been dealing with this years ago. I know there are a number of

:46:47.:46:51.

ongoing investigations into homophobic abuse in foot or grounds,

:46:52.:46:56.

but how do you work out how it started, who is responsible and

:46:57.:47:02.

enforce it? It is the responsibility of each club. There are stewards on

:47:03.:47:07.

the game. They have to be the eyes and ears of what's going on.

:47:08.:47:11.

Equally, fans have a responsibility and most fans don't want to hear

:47:12.:47:15.

this kind of abuse. They can report it with apps like the Kick It Out

:47:16.:47:23.

app. There can be self policing as well, can't bear? I've been in

:47:24.:47:26.

football grounds weather has been terrible abuse. Someone else. Then

:47:27.:47:36.

and say, why it. Spot on. The best policing comes from the fan groups

:47:37.:47:40.

themselves. The vast majority of Liverpool fans that I go to matches

:47:41.:47:43.

with have been fantastic. They've been very welcoming and supportive.

:47:44.:47:48.

We had about 500 pairs of rainbow laces last year and they were taken

:47:49.:47:54.

from fans from all communities. Is the response consistent? I imagine

:47:55.:47:59.

consistency is key. It isn't and that's the problem. Some clubs have

:48:00.:48:03.

been very progressive in making sure they take action and other clubs do

:48:04.:48:08.

not... It does not feel as if they've been consistent. Equally,

:48:09.:48:13.

there have been harsh sanctions applied against racism and there

:48:14.:48:16.

hasn't always been the same level applied in the same way and we need

:48:17.:48:20.

to progress with education and work with different families and make

:48:21.:48:24.

sure the fans realise the impact of their behaviour. You're stopping

:48:25.:48:31.

potentially locking out players from focusing on other things, things

:48:32.:48:36.

other than football, if you give them an atmosphere where they can

:48:37.:48:39.

feel confident about who they are. Then their football will only be

:48:40.:48:43.

better. I'm afraid we have run out of time. Thank you so much for

:48:44.:48:46.

coming on. Let's check-in on what the weather

:48:47.:48:51.

is doing. It is looking a bit wet, wild and

:48:52.:48:56.

snow in some parts of the country? Yes, quite a raw day outside today.

:48:57.:49:04.

The stronger wind than yesterday, making it feel chilly, and there

:49:05.:49:08.

will be a mixture of rain and snow around. Some of it is giving us a

:49:09.:49:13.

coating of snow in east Anglia. As you can see it is not snow

:49:14.:49:16.

everywhere and there is rain mixed in, but as it drifts northwards

:49:17.:49:20.

through the Midlands and parts of the north-east of England we will

:49:21.:49:24.

see a bit more snow here and there. Not a huge amount and not hugely

:49:25.:49:28.

disruptive. Snow to higher ground. South of that, not as much rain,

:49:29.:49:33.

sleet and snow in southern counties. A bit more brightness. Pretty gusty

:49:34.:49:39.

winds towards the north and west and stronger winds across northern

:49:40.:49:42.

England this morning, bringing in the mixture of rain, sleet and snow.

:49:43.:49:48.

Mainly dry for Northern Ireland. Northern Scotland has sunshine

:49:49.:49:52.

around, but a frost to start Monday. The wind is stronger than yesterday,

:49:53.:49:57.

which will blow some of the snow around the tops of the Pennines, the

:49:58.:50:01.

peak district, the north York Moors in the afternoon. Away from that

:50:02.:50:06.

there will be some sleet and snow in the north of Wales, but not as many

:50:07.:50:09.

shower was as yesterday for England and Wales. Largely dry. Against

:50:10.:50:14.

Northern Ireland. The sunniest in northern Scotland. Feeling very cold

:50:15.:50:19.

in the wind. Something milder in a few days to come. It clears away

:50:20.:50:26.

some of the snow from the hills of England, turning it to mist and fog,

:50:27.:50:31.

and introducing clearer skies. Temperatures may have risen by the

:50:32.:50:34.

end of the night in parts of England. Further north, a chilly

:50:35.:50:40.

start the Monday. Pity grey and misty to begin with in north-east

:50:41.:50:43.

England, eastern Scotland. -- Ricky Gray. To the south and west of the

:50:44.:50:49.

country we will have much more sunshine around, but some pretty

:50:50.:50:54.

strong winds. Rather dusty as well in western Wales and the south-west

:50:55.:50:57.

of England, but note the temperatures. We will see more

:50:58.:51:00.

temperatures like that through the week. How about this? This was in

:51:01.:51:07.

Boston on Thursday! Huge amounts of snow. Believe it or not they are

:51:08.:51:13.

about to get another dose through today. We could get as much as 30-

:51:14.:51:18.

50 centimetres of snow for before Sunday is through! That's proper

:51:19.:51:27.

weather! Thanks very much. It is how you deal with that snow that's the

:51:28.:51:29.

key. Stay at home! Turning our attention to a story we

:51:30.:51:43.

have been following on Exist. -- Reckless.

:51:44.:51:44.

Whale lovers in New Zealand finally got some good news over night

:51:45.:51:47.

after more than 200 stranded pilot whales managed to refloat

:51:48.:51:50.

Conservationists working on the beach say hundreds of whales

:51:51.:51:53.

have died along Farewell Spit over the past few days and the cause

:51:54.:51:57.

Lucy Babey from Orca, a UK charity looking out for whales,

:51:58.:52:01.

At last some good news? It is good to see that some of the whales have

:52:02.:52:14.

gotten back out on a high tide. There is the risk that they could

:52:15.:52:18.

come back in, or others may, so it is important that people are alert.

:52:19.:52:21.

Picking up on something you said, get themselves out, is this how it

:52:22.:52:27.

works? We seen people making their best efforts to encourage them to go

:52:28.:52:31.

back out, but is it something they have to do themselves? These animals

:52:32.:52:36.

do come into sure, at what happened at the moment is it is on a spring

:52:37.:52:41.

tide in Farewell Spit, rich means you have a very high high tide, so

:52:42.:52:46.

they come in further, and with the low tide it receives further, so it

:52:47.:52:54.

happens quickly and the animals are left stranded. Talk us through this

:52:55.:53:01.

part of the world and the geography which makes this quite common.

:53:02.:53:06.

Farewell Spit is notorious for whales strandings. It has very

:53:07.:53:13.

gently sloping sandy beaches. Whales use it something like echolocation,

:53:14.:53:16.

similar to what that's used to navigate around, but they need to be

:53:17.:53:21.

able to navigate around and have something for it to bounce back

:53:22.:53:25.

from. The small slopes makes them think they are in deeper waters than

:53:26.:53:29.

what they are. Combine that with a quick receding tide and the end up

:53:30.:53:34.

in trouble. Why is it that we see so many of them stranded? Pilot whales

:53:35.:53:39.

have really strong social bonds. They are in family groups. They are

:53:40.:53:44.

called pilot whales because they tend to follow a leader. They are in

:53:45.:53:49.

fact a dolphin. If an individual becomes stranded for whatever

:53:50.:53:54.

reason, through illness or wrong navigation, the others are so

:53:55.:53:59.

strongly bonded to that individual they will come and try to help them

:54:00.:54:03.

and end up in trouble themselves. We've been looking at pictures of

:54:04.:54:07.

people helping. Clearly there is a lot of work that humans can do to

:54:08.:54:11.

help them when they are stranded. Why is it so important that they are

:54:12.:54:14.

covered and kept wet? Talk us through how that works. So these

:54:15.:54:19.

animals are large animals, 6-7 metres in length and can weigh a

:54:20.:54:25.

lot. They need the buoyancy of the water to keep their body supported.

:54:26.:54:29.

When they are romantic causes a lot of stress on their organs, which is

:54:30.:54:33.

why some of them unfortunately do die. They need the water to stay

:54:34.:54:38.

wet, they can dry out and overheat. But they are mammals, so they need

:54:39.:54:42.

to breathe air, so it is really important to keep them cool and you

:54:43.:54:46.

protect their blowhole, which is the nose on the top of the head. I think

:54:47.:54:51.

I've seen in this picture is someone singing to them. Yes, that has

:54:52.:54:57.

happened. We know that whales and dolphins are very vocal and some of

:54:58.:55:01.

them do sing to each other, so that could be a way of calming them. It

:55:02.:55:06.

could be a way to help us deal with the situation as well, got it is

:55:07.:55:10.

very sad to see this. What guarantees it if any are there for

:55:11.:55:14.

not coming back? On that have managed to go back out, you would

:55:15.:55:17.

hope they've bent on foreign after the able to swim away, but we could

:55:18.:55:22.

see this happen again? -- they've gone far enough. The same group

:55:23.:55:29.

could come back, or others good. If there are still stranded individuals

:55:30.:55:32.

on the beach, that strong bond will mean they will try to come in and

:55:33.:55:36.

get to the individuals again. That's why the court and see -- the

:55:37.:55:42.

co-ordinated response is needed. You need to get them out at the same

:55:43.:55:46.

time to prevent them coming back again. Sadly, with strandings, we

:55:47.:55:50.

don't know the reasons why until after the event, until we can

:55:51.:55:54.

examine the dead individuals and get the environmental conditions that

:55:55.:55:58.

has made them come in. That's why it makes it quite difficult to prevent.

:55:59.:56:02.

But research is key and vital. Organisations out in New Zealand,

:56:03.:56:09.

all of this work is important to build a picture of what's going on

:56:10.:56:12.

with animals, so we can protect them in the future. Thank you very much

good news in the forecast in 15 minutes. Thank you.

:02:38.:02:40.

Thousands of operations are being cancelled with highly-skilled

:02:41.:02:44.

surgeons left "kicking their heels" because of a shortage of hospital

:02:45.:02:47.

beds, according to the Royal College of Surgeons and the organisation

:02:48.:02:50.

In a joint letter to the Sunday Times, they argue that

:02:51.:02:54.

a lack of funding for health and social care in England

:02:55.:02:57.

is leading to what they call a "shocking waste" and damaging

:02:58.:03:00.

NHS England says only 1% of operations are cancelled.

:03:01.:03:03.

Our health correspondent, Dominic Hughes, has more.

:03:04.:03:10.

Over the past few weeks, the BBC2 documentary series,

:03:11.:03:13.

Hospital, has demonstrated how a shortage of beds contributed

:03:14.:03:17.

to the pressure on the health service.

:03:18.:03:21.

This can lead to long waits for those needing to be admitted

:03:22.:03:26.

from Accident and Emergency departments, but also for those

:03:27.:03:28.

I sometimes feel that I spend as much energy on trying to organise

:03:29.:03:37.

and manage beds and the movement, the flow of patients

:03:38.:03:39.

to do what we want to get on with, which is to operate.

:03:40.:03:46.

The programme showed how if beds are not available for patients

:03:47.:03:50.

to recover in safely, operations simply

:03:51.:03:51.

Now the Royal College of Surgeons and the NHS body that represents NHS

:03:52.:03:59.

trusts says this is damaging efforts to improve productivity

:04:00.:04:07.

with surgeons left kicking their heels while they wait for beds

:04:08.:04:10.

We are waiting for someone to let us do work.

:04:11.:04:17.

It is not good for the staff and it is not good for the patience

:04:18.:04:21.

and it is not good for the efficiency of the NHS.

:04:22.:04:24.

The latest figures from NHS England reveal more than 95% of beds

:04:25.:04:28.

were occupied last week, well above the 85% that is regarded

:04:29.:04:31.

The problem is closely linked to delays in providing adequate care

:04:32.:04:35.

outside of hospital, especially for frail and elderly

:04:36.:04:37.

patients once they are ready to be discharged.

:04:38.:04:39.

Today, doctors and hospital managers say fixing the NHS means fixing

:04:40.:04:48.

social care, and learning the lessons of an extraordinarily

:04:49.:04:51.

NHS England say "The level of cancellations remains low at just

:04:52.:04:56.

1% of the millions of operations performed in the NHS each year."

:04:57.:05:00.

The Speaker of the House of Commons, John Bercow has insisted

:05:01.:05:03.

that his impartiality has not been compromised after a video emerged

:05:04.:05:06.

showing him making political comments including saying

:05:07.:05:08.

that he voted Remain in the EU Referendum.

:05:09.:05:10.

The Sunday Telegraph is reported he made the remarks to students

:05:11.:05:13.

at Reading University, just three days before saying

:05:14.:05:15.

he would veto a parliamentary address by President Donald Trump.

:05:16.:05:18.

The UK Parliament website states that "speakers must

:05:19.:05:20.

This may not be popular with some people in this audience,

:05:21.:05:28.

I thought it was better to stay in the European Union than not,

:05:29.:05:40.

partly for economic reasons, part of being within a trading bloc,

:05:41.:05:48.

and partly because we are in a big power bloc and because it is better

:05:49.:05:52.

to be part of a bigger power bloc in the world.

:05:53.:05:59.

Explain how significant these criticisms are. They were made three

:06:00.:06:08.

days before those comments were made about Donald Trump in the house on

:06:09.:06:11.

Monday when he accused Donald Trump of sexism and racism and said he

:06:12.:06:17.

should not addressed Parliament when it comes to the UK for a state visit

:06:18.:06:21.

later on this year. Now, that was met by applause by some MPs in the

:06:22.:06:26.

house, but others felt he went a step too far. That he is supposed to

:06:27.:06:30.

remain impartial and was not impartial by saying that. So there

:06:31.:06:34.

was a vote of no confidence. This latest revelation that a few days

:06:35.:06:38.

earlier he had said he supported remaining in the EU is being used

:06:39.:06:42.

certainly by those who want to see the back of John Bercow. Adding fuel

:06:43.:06:47.

to the fire really to get rid of him. For John Bercow's part, his

:06:48.:06:53.

supporters have said that when it comes down to chairing debates in

:06:54.:06:56.

the House of Commons, he remains very impartial and he always is

:06:57.:07:00.

there to those present and in terms of those comments made on the EU,

:07:01.:07:05.

those were made after the campaign, and certainly during the campaign he

:07:06.:07:09.

remained impartial. But it brings into question again the impartiality

:07:10.:07:13.

of the speaker which is important. The speaker is supposed to give up

:07:14.:07:18.

political allegiance in all ways when they become the speaker and

:07:19.:07:22.

this is bringing back into question. Thank you.

:07:23.:07:25.

North Korea has fired a ballistic missile in the first such test

:07:26.:07:28.

since Donald Trump took office as US President.

:07:29.:07:30.

Speaking at a joint press conference during a visit to America

:07:31.:07:33.

by Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Ahbay Mr Trump assured him "America

:07:34.:07:36.

stands behind Japan, its great ally, 100%."

:07:37.:07:38.

With the latest, our reporter, Kevin Kim, is in Seoul

:07:39.:07:41.

Well, I believe most North Korea observers may think that the timing

:07:42.:07:57.

of the missile launch may not have been a coincidence,

:07:58.:07:59.

as North Korea often carries out such tests close to political

:08:00.:08:02.

What many North Korea observers are worried about is the direction

:08:03.:08:06.

President Trump's relations may be going with Kim Jong-un.

:08:07.:08:09.

North Korea has warned its nuclear programme and long-range nuclear

:08:10.:08:12.

capabilities being able to strike the United States

:08:13.:08:14.

President Trump has made it clear that he will not let this happen.

:08:15.:08:22.

If Pyongyang begins to test the boundaries

:08:23.:08:24.

of Donald Trump's North Korea policies, the fear is that

:08:25.:08:39.

a miscalculation of intentions may lead to escalation of events,

:08:40.:08:41.

which could ultimately lead to real military complication.

:08:42.:08:44.

In times of difficulties, President Trump, will he be able

:08:45.:08:47.

to take measured steps over emotional responses?

:08:48.:08:49.

That has been the conversation of the region.

:08:50.:08:59.

14 retired bishops have written an open letter criticising

:09:00.:09:02.

the church's stance on same-sex marriages.

:09:03.:09:03.

The Church of England last month said it did not support gay

:09:04.:09:07.

marriage, a position announced after three years of conversations

:09:08.:09:09.

with lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Christians,

:09:10.:09:11.

who the bishops now claim have been betrayed.

:09:12.:09:13.

The decision will be debated at the General Synod on Wednesday,

:09:14.:09:16.

Last month, the Church of England decided its position on the divisive

:09:17.:09:20.

It followed three years of so-called shared conversations,

:09:21.:09:26.

and stated that "marriage should only be between a man and a woman."

:09:27.:09:30.

The Church said all potential clergy, gay and straight,

:09:31.:09:32.

should be asked about their sexual conduct and their lifestyle.

:09:33.:09:35.

But 14 retired bishops have today expressed their concern

:09:36.:09:47.

that the views of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender members

:09:48.:09:50.

In an unusual move, they have written an open letter to the Church

:09:51.:09:54.

of England, a group led by the former Bishop of Worcester.

:09:55.:09:57.

They entered those negotiations knowing they would have

:09:58.:09:59.

In a circumstance that might carry a price in terms of their life

:10:00.:10:06.

and their career, their ministry, what was offered to them,

:10:07.:10:09.

And they feel that what has come out here is a betrayal in the specific

:10:10.:10:18.

The Church of England said the shared conversations were not

:10:19.:10:24.

changing people's views, but recognising Jesus in people

:10:25.:10:26.

with whom the participants disagreed.

:10:27.:10:29.

The divisive debate over sexuality will continue,

:10:30.:10:37.

and the Church's Governing General Synod will meet

:10:38.:10:39.

next week in London.

:10:40.:10:40.

we will talk about that in depth in a few minutes' time.

:10:41.:10:51.

Homophobic abuse in sport should result in immediate action,

:10:52.:10:54.

including lengthy stadium bans, say MPs in a new report.

:10:55.:10:57.

The Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee says football clubs

:10:58.:10:59.

in particular are not doing enough, and should be taking

:11:00.:11:02.

14 sailors have been rescued by a Royal Navy warship

:11:03.:11:15.

after their racing yacht was damaged in a storm in the Atlantic Ocean.

:11:16.:11:18.

HMS Dragon, the Navy's Type II Destroyer, diverted 500 miles

:11:19.:11:21.

to save 13 Britons and one American on Saturday afternoon.

:11:22.:11:24.

The sailors only suffered minor injuries but their 60-foot yacht

:11:25.:11:27.

lost its mast and rudder in the bad weather.

:11:28.:11:29.

More than 200 pilot whales that were stranded on a beach

:11:30.:11:32.

in New Zealand have re-floated themselves and swum away.

:11:33.:11:34.

Another 17 were returned to the sea by teams of volunteers.

:11:35.:11:37.

About 350 whales died in two days at the beach at Farewell Spit.

:11:38.:11:49.

A little bit of good news, though, that some of them got away. And

:11:50.:12:06.

actually, they are not types of whale, they are dolphins, it is just

:12:07.:12:08.

the name. The stars of the silver screen

:12:09.:12:20.

will be out in force on the red carpet at London's Royal Albert Hall

for the annual British Academy Film Leading the field with 11

director and leading actor to name And it looks gorgeous. I still have

:12:31.:12:40.

not seen it yet. You have to fix that.

:12:41.:12:40.

After three years of so-called "shared conversations"

:12:41.:12:42.

between congregations and the clergy, the Church

:12:43.:12:44.

of England last month announced its opposition

:12:45.:12:46.

Now, 14 retired Bishops have written an open letter

:12:47.:12:49.

criticising the position, that marriage in church should

:12:50.:12:51.

remain the lifelong union of a man and woman.

:12:52.:12:53.

The stance is set to be debated on Wednesday at the General Synod.

:12:54.:12:57.

Jayne Ozanne, who helped organise the letter,

:12:58.:12:59.

joins us now and in our Bristol newsroom is Ed Shaw,

:13:00.:13:02.

from the Christian charity, Living Out.

:13:03.:13:04.

Good morning to you. First of all, if I could just ask you, what was

:13:05.:13:11.

your response to the letter? I am thrilled, actually, that the retired

:13:12.:13:16.

bishops felt, in an unprecedented way, that they could speak out like

:13:17.:13:20.

this. I think they know the struggles that their colleagues are

:13:21.:13:24.

having. But they also know how important it is for a large portion

:13:25.:13:28.

of the Church to be recognised as equal members. And that there are

:13:29.:13:34.

different ways of reading Scripture. So I am very, very grateful that

:13:35.:13:38.

they have taken this step and it is very timely for us. Ed, in Bristol,

:13:39.:13:49.

explain what it is that Living Out stands for. Correct me if I am

:13:50.:13:53.

wrong, you are not identifying as get -- gay Christians. I find that

:13:54.:14:09.

everyone can think of themselves as what they want. I am someone who is

:14:10.:14:14.

attracted to the same-sex. Jesus asked us to soup -- abstain. You can

:14:15.:14:24.

be single, Christian, same-sex attracted happily. You welcome the

:14:25.:14:29.

report from the Church of England? I welcome the fact that they seem to

:14:30.:14:33.

be wanting to clearly follow Jesus' line that sex is between eight man

:14:34.:14:39.

and a woman. I am not happy with all of the report. --A man. What is your

:14:40.:14:47.

reaction? I hear him saying that but I disagree. I actually believe that

:14:48.:14:53.

Jesus would want me to be fulfilled and to be able to commit to life to

:14:54.:14:58.

a partner who I love, who loves me, and it have a fruitful and blessed

:14:59.:15:01.

relationship. And the difficulty we have is that we have different

:15:02.:15:05.

readings of Scripture, and that is what the report fails to recognise.

:15:06.:15:11.

We have three years of conversations were over and over again, the same

:15:12.:15:14.

point came up that people read scripture differently. We don't

:15:15.:15:17.

accept that in the church and I think it is time we did. You say

:15:18.:15:27.

that it has got no one anywhere? We have a whole community of people who

:15:28.:15:33.

feel unhurt. The working party that put this report together didn't even

:15:34.:15:38.

have a gay voice, so I think sadly what the report does is

:15:39.:15:43.

institutionalised being hidden and trying to pretend that we don't

:15:44.:15:48.

really know there's gay clergy who are married, or who are in loving

:15:49.:15:54.

relationships. I think as Christians we need to be open and honest. The

:15:55.:15:58.

church has a responsibility to listen to the congregation and take

:15:59.:16:02.

their views onboard and the act upon them. Does the Church not have more

:16:03.:16:07.

of a responsibility to be more inclusive? I think the Church of

:16:08.:16:10.

England has lessened. I was part of all three stages of the conversation

:16:11.:16:14.

process and there was a lot of painful sharing for people like me

:16:15.:16:21.

and Jane are also lots of listening. Just because the Church hasn't

:16:22.:16:24.

changed its mind doesn't mean they haven't listened. You can be part of

:16:25.:16:28.

a conversation we listen but you don't necessarily change your mind

:16:29.:16:31.

and I think the Church of England has listened, but it has also come

:16:32.:16:36.

to the view that the second view, what Christians have always believed

:16:37.:16:40.

down the centuries, is right and good for people like myself and Jane

:16:41.:16:45.

and that is that there can be great joy in that single life, living for

:16:46.:16:49.

Christ, without a sexual relationship. I think the Church of

:16:50.:16:54.

England has listened and listened well and come to a good conclusion

:16:55.:17:02.

in this report. You said earlier that it is important that we self

:17:03.:17:06.

identify and identify yourself in the type of life you want to lead

:17:07.:17:13.

may not suit anybody else, so what do you say to the people who are

:17:14.:17:17.

perhaps attracted to people of the same sex don't want to be on their

:17:18.:17:21.

own and do want a partner and maybe want that partner for life? Human

:17:22.:17:25.

beings will come up with different views on how you thrive as a human

:17:26.:17:31.

being. The person I most want to listen to is not myself or Jane, but

:17:32.:17:38.

Jesus Christ myself. I think he has been wonderfully clear that marriage

:17:39.:17:44.

is between a man and woman and also by his life it shows you can leave

:17:45.:17:49.

without sex and still enjoy life to the full. You still feel excluded

:17:50.:17:55.

and you are shaking your head. Do you still feel excluded? Yes and

:17:56.:18:01.

sadly I have tried to live like Ed for 40 years and it left me in

:18:02.:18:06.

hospital, fighting for my life, because I couldn't cope with the

:18:07.:18:09.

strain of it and I think it's a really damaging teaching. With

:18:10.:18:12.

Singapore this week that shows nearly half of LGBT teenagers think

:18:13.:18:16.

about committing suicide and that's because of the stress that they are

:18:17.:18:20.

under. We need to find a much better way of embracing difference in our

:18:21.:18:24.

church. Is that the responsibility of the Church or all of us? All of

:18:25.:18:32.

us, but the Church should be leading the way. Last year I did a survey

:18:33.:18:37.

where I asked the general public what they thought of same-sex

:18:38.:18:40.

marriage and I specifically asked Anglicans and there are more who

:18:41.:18:45.

believe that same-sex marriage is right, and is wrong. That's not

:18:46.:18:50.

reflected in report either. Ed says they were listening, but they were

:18:51.:18:54.

listening for what they wanted to hear, I would suggest not listening

:18:55.:18:57.

to what the grassroots were really telling them. Good to see you. Good

:18:58.:19:03.

to hear both of those views. Thank you.

:19:04.:19:05.

You're watching Breakfast from BBC News.

:19:06.:19:10.

The main stories this morning: Surgeons and hospital trusts say

:19:11.:19:12.

thousands of operations are being cancelled because of a shortage

:19:13.:19:15.

Commons Speaker John Bercow insists his impartiality has not

:19:16.:19:19.

been affected after he revealed he had voted Remain

:19:20.:19:23.

And coming up on the programme: Why being taken to the cleaners can

:19:24.:19:28.

We'll speak to the bride set to be reunited with her missing

:19:29.:19:41.

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

:19:42.:19:47.

Good morning. I got my own heartwarming story. Things could get

:19:48.:19:55.

milder over coming days. There is some good news today. Some parts

:19:56.:20:00.

struggling to get to four degrees but by the time we get to the middle

:20:01.:20:04.

part we will see temperatures widely in double figures. Feeling a touch

:20:05.:20:09.

more like spring as the winds come off the Atlantic. Today winds still

:20:10.:20:13.

come from the east. We've seen some snow already, giving a dusting in

:20:14.:20:18.

east Anglia and to the north of London, working towards the east

:20:19.:20:22.

Midlands, and that will continue northwards through this morning,

:20:23.:20:25.

giving a slight covering of snow anywhere. Over the hills we could

:20:26.:20:30.

see a centimetre or two, even more as it pushes into the Pennines and

:20:31.:20:33.

pig district later. -- Peak District. Not as much rain, sleet

:20:34.:20:40.

and snow around as yesterday and brighter skies later. A dry start to

:20:41.:20:45.

north and west Wales. Rain, sleet and snow becomes more abundant in

:20:46.:20:48.

the north-east of England. The snow mainly over the hills, but some to

:20:49.:20:53.

lower levels at times. Some wintry weather to the south and east of

:20:54.:20:56.

Scotland. Across Northern Ireland largely dry. Scotland the best for

:20:57.:21:02.

the sunny conditions. A couple more quinces in the south compared to

:21:03.:21:06.

yesterday. As you can see once the snow is into the Pennines it will be

:21:07.:21:12.

there all day. It will blow around in lively winds and those will make

:21:13.:21:15.

it feel colder than the temperatures behind me suggest. A cold and to.

:21:16.:21:22.

Sleet and snow through the central suede. -- cold and today. Rain comes

:21:23.:21:31.

up from France and slightly less cold. In the south-west of England

:21:32.:21:36.

temperatures will rise throughout. Milder air pushes in by the time we

:21:37.:21:41.

reached on. Still cold for many, especially in eastern Scotland and

:21:42.:21:45.

eastern England. Some patchy rain, sleet and snow. Brightest in the

:21:46.:21:51.

west and south. Increasing sunshine. A fairly windy day and across

:21:52.:21:55.

western parts of Scotland, Northern Ireland and north-west England,

:21:56.:21:59.

strong and gusty winds. Especially gusty in western Wales and the

:22:00.:22:02.

south-west of England. Thank you. It does look called!

:22:03.:22:05.

Double figures. -- look cold. The Andrew Marr

:22:06.:22:10.

programme is on BBC One What have you got coming

:22:11.:22:18.

up today Andrew? We have John Bercow, on his

:22:19.:22:27.

relationship with other MPs. We've got the leader of the Commons on the

:22:28.:22:31.

programme to talk about that and Brexit. The other story is new

:22:32.:22:34.

pressure on Labour. I have Tom Watson to reflect on what happens to

:22:35.:22:39.

the Labour Party. I've got Chrissie Hynde from the Pretenders and

:22:40.:22:45.

adjudged talking about pressures on the NHS. So lots to talk about at

:22:46.:22:47.

nine a.m.. Thanks very much. You're watching

:22:48.:22:51.

Breakfast from BBC News. Time now for a look

:22:52.:22:54.

at the newspapers. Anand Menon from the thinktank UK

:22:55.:23:01.

in a Changing Europe is here to tell First, let's look

:23:02.:23:05.

at the front pages. Starting with the Observer. All

:23:06.:23:15.

sorts on the front page, including a picture of the rugby yesterday. The

:23:16.:23:21.

attitude to gay relationships. We've just been talking about that. The

:23:22.:23:28.

general synod meeting on Wednesday. They aren't expected to make any

:23:29.:23:33.

change on the stance on same-sex marriage. For this morning's Sunday

:23:34.:23:39.

Express Row, recalled this Trump aid, ahead of the visit of Donald

:23:40.:23:44.

Trump the UK they say what he would choose to do is speak to the people

:23:45.:23:48.

with a stadium rally while he is here, a ticketed event, with the

:23:49.:23:53.

proceeds going to the Poppy Appeal. He says it would be a celebration of

:23:54.:23:59.

the relationship between America and Britain.

:24:00.:24:02.

Sunday Telegraph, and the stories on the front. Their top story leads on

:24:03.:24:12.

our top story, John Bercow and new issues after it was revealed he

:24:13.:24:19.

voted Remain. Now pressure on him to quit, Russia mounting on him as well

:24:20.:24:24.

after he said last week that he does not want President Trump to address

:24:25.:24:26.

parliament. The front page of the Sunday Times.

:24:27.:24:31.

We are focusing on a story about Russia. In a first interview the

:24:32.:24:39.

head of GCHQ says there has been a significant step change in Russia's

:24:40.:24:44.

online aggression towards The west. Apparently Britain is being hit by

:24:45.:24:49.

60 significant cyber attacks every month, including attacks by Russian

:24:50.:24:51.

state-sponsored hackers. Let's have a look at the inside

:24:52.:24:53.

pages. This is in the Observer. Ukip too

:24:54.:25:04.

disorganised to cash in on Brexit, says opponent.

:25:05.:25:06.

This is a story about the by-election in Stoke. Ukip are the

:25:07.:25:13.

bookies' favourite to win there, because they voted strongly to leave

:25:14.:25:17.

and Labour has all sorts of problems. People on the ground as

:25:18.:25:21.

saying the Ukip ground operation is not professional or organised enough

:25:22.:25:24.

for them to win. What do they need in that ground

:25:25.:25:29.

operation? Its people knocking on doors and speaking to voters and

:25:30.:25:33.

they need to be pretty organised. It does, because you need to have a

:25:34.:25:37.

good database, you need to know where you are knocking and to your

:25:38.:25:41.

supporters are, do you need to get out on the day and what some of the

:25:42.:25:44.

bigger parties like Labour are saying is Ukip aren't very good at

:25:45.:25:49.

this and have lost a lot of their key election organisers over the

:25:50.:25:54.

next year so they went be very good at getting it out. Your next story

:25:55.:25:59.

is the new Sunday Telegraph and this is about Britain's trade deals with

:26:00.:26:03.

the EU and restrictions upon them. Yes. It is a slightly misleading

:26:04.:26:07.

title because what the story is about is two things. We aren't

:26:08.:26:12.

allowed to sign trade deals until we leave, is all this talk about

:26:13.:26:16.

signing a deal with the US will have to wait. The other thing is about

:26:17.:26:19.

the danger that Jean-Claude Juncker sees about Britain trying to divide

:26:20.:26:23.

the member states, so going to each of them with different offers they

:26:24.:26:28.

can't come back with a united front, so it will strengthen as in the

:26:29.:26:31.

negotiations. Staying with a political scene, the Times. This is

:26:32.:26:38.

on the front page. Secret Labour search for Jeremy Corbyn heir. Is

:26:39.:26:48.

that just good politics? Jeremy Corbyn is doing very badly when it

:26:49.:26:52.

comes to popularity with voters, so there is some urgency. Even if Ukip

:26:53.:27:00.

don't win in Stoke, if they go into meltdown their votes could go back

:27:01.:27:04.

to the Conservatives. So the Labour Party faces challenges from all

:27:05.:27:07.

fronts. Here on the sofa, a couple of days ago, Jeremy Corbyn said he

:27:08.:27:12.

had no plans to stand down. Absolutely. In Westminster the

:27:13.:27:16.

rumours are rife and people say he is thinking about standing down.

:27:17.:27:20.

There is a story doing the rounds, but he is basically hanging on for

:27:21.:27:23.

long enough to ensure the succession goes to someone he wants. But only

:27:24.:27:28.

time will tell. Let's turn away from politics. The weather, our

:27:29.:27:36.

obsession. The hayloft ?2, weatherwise. -- tale of two towns.

:27:37.:27:44.

It will be warmer in parts of the UK than Barcelona, which can only be

:27:45.:27:48.

good! But I don't think it is that warming Barcelona this week. But I

:27:49.:27:52.

think we are thinking of healthy double figures, which has to be

:27:53.:27:56.

good, having been out this morning at the crack of dawn when it was

:27:57.:28:01.

freezing! Such a mixed because we had snow in some parts of the

:28:02.:28:04.

country over the last couple of days, some snow forecast for the

:28:05.:28:08.

next couple of days, but the south-west has been warm.

:28:09.:28:12.

But if you can see this picture in Brighton, swimming in the sea off

:28:13.:28:16.

Brighton, alcohol has it been? I don't think you would swing this

:28:17.:28:22.

week, it is freezing! It is part of the fund, because the water is cold

:28:23.:28:29.

it is invigorating. -- part of the fun. It is one of those things, I

:28:30.:28:33.

can see the sense in it. I just don't want to do it! And your last

:28:34.:28:40.

story? This struck me as we had story, the idea that if you use

:28:41.:28:45.

white vinegar it will make your washing whiter. Vinegar in your

:28:46.:28:49.

washing machine? Yes. Like vinegar that you put on your

:28:50.:28:55.

chips? The white stuff, not the malt. But there is still a slight

:28:56.:28:58.

smell, I would have thought. What does it smell like? I would hazard a

:28:59.:29:05.

guess that it would be vinegar. But there are other things in with it.

:29:06.:29:10.

Vinegar is good for cleaning stuff. And it is very cheap. It is cheap.

:29:11.:29:17.

But still smelly. More household hints on the programme!

:29:18.:29:18.

Nice to see you. Thank you. We're here on the BBC News Channel

:29:19.:29:21.

until 9am this morning. The team from Click will take a look

:29:22.:29:24.

at the 500 year history of humanity's attempts to create

:29:25.:29:29.

robots that resemble people. We've done a lot on a programme

:29:30.:29:39.

about this. These are incredible. It looks at

:29:40.:29:43.

them through the ages and they look at how lifelike they are. They are

:29:44.:29:47.

wrong reception desks, all sorts of places.

:29:48.:29:51.

Featuring for that. I don't want a robot in my world.

:29:52.:29:52.

It could be useful! But this is where we say goodbye

:29:53.:29:54.

to viewers on BBC One. I'm a detective

:29:55.:29:57.

with the Metropolitan Police. How long did you resist

:29:58.:30:06.

working for us?

:30:07.:30:09.
