Hello, this is Breakfast,

with Charlie Stayt and Naga

0:00:070:00:12

Munchetty.

0:00:120:00:12

Boris Johnson flies to Iran

to try to secure the release

0:00:120:00:15

of a jailed British mother.

0:00:150:00:17

The Foreign Secretary is due

to arrive there in the next few

0:00:170:00:20

hours and is expected

to raise "grave concerns"

0:00:200:00:22

about the imprisonment

of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe.

0:00:220:00:24

Good morning.

0:00:390:00:41

It's Saturday, the 9th of December.

0:00:410:00:44

Also this morning -

reaction to Theresa May's Brexit

0:00:440:00:48

breakthrough.

0:00:480:00:54

The Environment Secretary,

Michael Gove, says if the British

0:00:540:00:57

public doesn't like the final deal,

it can have its say

0:00:570:01:00

at the next general election.

0:01:000:01:02

President Trump declares a state

of emergency in California as strong

0:01:020:01:04

winds continue to fan

the flames of a series

0:01:040:01:07

of devastating wildfires.

0:01:070:01:08

More snow and ice on the way

for large parts of the UK

0:01:080:01:11

with freezing temperatures likely

to cause travel delays.

0:01:110:01:13

Stav will have the latest for us

throughout the morning.

0:01:130:01:16

Good morning. A wintry weekend for

all. 20 of sunshine in the forecast.

0:01:160:01:21

A few snow showers. Tomorrow, the

potential of significant snow for

0:01:210:01:27

some. Join me later for all the

details.

0:01:270:01:29

In sport, a massive blow

for Wales' Six Nations hopes.

0:01:290:01:32

Their captain Sam Warburton is now

out for at least four months,

0:01:320:01:35

after having knee surgery.

0:01:350:01:45

Good morning.

0:01:450:01:46

First, our main story.

0:01:460:01:48

The foreign secretary,

Boris Johnson, is due to arrive

0:01:480:01:50

in Iran shortly, where he will

express what he describes as "grave

0:01:500:01:53

concerns" over the imprisonment

of the British-Iranian woman,

0:01:530:01:55

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe.

0:01:550:01:57

The aid worker has been held

prisoner in the country since April

0:01:570:02:00

2016, accused of trying to overthrow

the Iranian government -

0:02:000:02:03

a charge she denies.

0:02:030:02:04

Mr Johnson is also expected

to discuss Britain's wider

0:02:040:02:06

relations with Iran.

0:02:060:02:07

Here's our diplomatic

correspondent, James Robbins.

0:02:070:02:18

Boris Johnson's first visit to Iran

could hardly be more sensitive. Last

0:02:180:02:23

month he was accused of damaging the

case for the release of Nazanin

0:02:230:02:26

Zaghari-Ratcliffe by remarks he

later apologised for. On his way to

0:02:260:02:30

Iran to see Iran's Foreign Minister,

he issued a statement, saying:

0:02:300:02:36

The Foreign Secretary says he will

also emphasise the UK's continued

0:02:430:02:48

support for the nuclear deal with

Iran, despite his repudiation but

0:02:480:02:51

President Trump. -- by. At he will

also make clear UK's concerns about

0:02:510:02:59

some of Iran was Mac activities,

notably in Syria and Yemen. He

0:02:590:03:03

described the relationship with Iran

is improving, but not

0:03:030:03:07

straightforward. The Foreign

Secretary has been careful to lower

0:03:070:03:11

any expectations of imminent release

for Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe, warning

0:03:110:03:15

that such cases are very difficult.

0:03:150:03:19

Our diplomatic correspondent James

Robbins reporting.

0:03:190:03:22

One of the Cabinet's leading

Brexiteers has suggested that voters

0:03:220:03:25

can use the next general election

to have their say on a final deal

0:03:250:03:29

with the European Union -

and to force a future government

0:03:290:03:32

to change course if

they don't like it.

0:03:320:03:34

The environment secretary,

Michael Gove, made the comments

0:03:340:03:36

in an article in The Daily

Telegraph, just a day

0:03:360:03:39

after Theresa May's agreement

in Brussels cleared the way

0:03:390:03:41

for trade talks.

0:03:410:03:42

Here's our political

correspondent, Eleanor Garnier.

0:03:420:03:47

-- we will get more on that later in

the programme.

0:03:470:03:52

The wintry weather looks set

to continue with Met Office warnings

0:03:520:03:55

in place for large parts of the UK.

0:03:550:03:57

More snow is expected

in northern and eastern regions

0:03:570:03:59

over the weekend.

0:03:590:04:00

The freezing conditions caused

significant disruption to commuters

0:04:000:04:02

yesterday and hundreds of properties

in the West Midlands

0:04:020:04:05

are still without power.

0:04:050:04:06

Simon Clemison has this report.

0:04:060:04:13

Some of these reindeer are getting

their first taste of snow in Dudley.

0:04:130:04:18

And in the early hours, more

snowfalls have been reported across

0:04:180:04:21

the UK, although conditions are

expect to ease for today. At

0:04:210:04:27

Manchester airport, wings have had

to be de- ice. -- de-iced. An image

0:04:270:04:35

some are about to leave behind.

Shrubs is somewhere in this picture.

0:04:350:04:39

On the Isle of Man, the weekend

began early, as all schools were

0:04:390:04:43

closed. Elsewhere, there have been

problems on the roads. The extremes

0:04:430:04:51

of the weather are expected to

eventually be confined to north-east

0:04:510:04:56

Scotland, but tomorrow, a spell of

heavy snow is likely over the

0:04:560:04:59

Midlands and parts of Wales and

northern England.

20 centimetres is

0:04:590:05:02

quite significant. We will press

ahead of that, we will salt ahead of

0:05:020:05:08

that, but past 20 centimetres we

might have to reduce the network and

0:05:080:05:12

keep key routes open. That is much

as you can do. 20 centimetres is

0:05:120:05:16

significant.

The Met Office is

warning that some in the countryside

0:05:160:05:19

may be cut off if the skies were not

convincing enough.

0:05:190:05:22

Stav will be here in the next few

minutes with the latest forecast.

0:05:220:05:30

Israel has launched further air

strikes against Hamas military

0:05:300:05:32

positions in the Gaza Strip,

in retaliation for Palestinian

0:05:320:05:35

rocket attacks on southern Israel.

0:05:350:05:36

Palestinians and Israeli security

forces have clashed in the West Bank

0:05:360:05:39

since President Trump recognised

Jerusalem as Israel's

0:05:390:05:41

capital on Wednesday.

0:05:410:05:42

Yesterday, the US ambassador

Nikki Haley defended Donald Trump's

0:05:420:05:44

comments and accused the UN

of bias against Israel.

0:05:440:05:56

Over many years, the United Nations

has outrageously been at the world's

0:05:560:06:02

foremost centres of hostility

towards Israel. The United Nations

0:06:020:06:06

has done much more damage to the

prospects for Middle East peace,

0:06:060:06:10

then to advance them.

0:06:100:06:16

Thousands of firefighters

in southern California

0:06:160:06:18

are continuing to battle a series

of wildfires which have destroyed

0:06:180:06:21

hundreds of homes.

0:06:210:06:22

More than 200,000 people have

already fled the area

0:06:220:06:24

and communities

0:06:240:06:25

on the Pacific coast,

including the city of Santa Barbara

0:06:250:06:27

and Ventura, are preparing

for evacuations.

0:06:270:06:29

President Trump has declared

a state of emergency.

0:06:290:06:31

Sarah Corker reports.

0:06:310:06:32

In the mountains north

of Los Angeles, wildfires

0:06:320:06:34

are roaring through the forests

of Ventura County.

0:06:340:06:36

Dry winds are fanning the flames,

causing them to spread rapidly,

0:06:360:06:39

and cutting across highways.

0:06:390:06:41

These guys are scrambling.

0:06:410:06:43

And the thick plumes

of smoke billow for miles.

0:06:430:06:46

Across southern California,

tens of thousands of people

0:06:460:06:48

have already fled.

0:06:480:06:51

And this is the destruction

they are escaping from.

0:06:510:06:58

I always equate these to my family

friends as disaster war zones

0:06:580:07:02

is what you see, with the homes that

are lost, and the tragedy that hits

0:07:020:07:06

all of these families that

live in these areas.

0:07:060:07:08

Currently the fire is about 130,000

acres, 425 homes have been confirmed

0:07:080:07:12

to be lost.

0:07:120:07:16

Some people now returning home see

what, if anything, they can salvage

0:07:160:07:21

from the charred wreckage.

0:07:210:07:24

It's unbelievable, it's

devastating, it is horrific.

0:07:240:07:26

There is nothing left.

0:07:260:07:27

Not a darn thing.

0:07:270:07:30

The first fires broke out on Monday,

reaching the exclusive neighbourhood

0:07:300:07:33

of Bel Air, in Los Angeles,

and threatening the neighbourhoods

0:07:330:07:36

of Hollywood stars.

0:07:360:07:43

At night, it looks like a volcano

erupting, and from Santa Barbara

0:07:430:07:46

to LA and San Diego,

more than 8,000 firefighters

0:07:460:07:48

are trying to contain these fires,

the worst in living memory here.

0:07:480:07:58

Strong winds are forecast

through the weekend,

0:07:580:08:00

making for extremely

dangerous conditions.

0:08:000:08:10

An urgent review into the

availability of free to use ATMs is

0:08:100:08:14

needed to make sure customers do not

struggle to access cash. This is

0:08:140:08:18

according to the consumer watchdog

Which. The UK's largest ATM network,

0:08:180:08:25

Link, wants to cut the fees charged

to ATM users. There are concerns the

0:08:250:08:31

overall -- the overhaul of the

network could reduce the number of

0:08:310:08:35

ATMs available to customers.

It

could potentially reduce the number

0:08:350:08:38

of ATMs in the UK or increase the

number of pay for ATMs in the UK. We

0:08:380:08:43

want to ensure that consumers have

access to money in the way they want

0:08:430:08:47

to, particularly in the face of

closing bank branches, where people

0:08:470:08:50

find it more and more difficult to

get hold of a bank and get their

0:08:500:08:54

money the way they want to.

It is

6:08am. Let's get more on

0:08:540:08:59

yesterday's Brexit deal, which has

paid the way for trade talks to

0:08:590:09:03

begin between the EU and the UK.

This morning, one of the Cabinet's

0:09:030:09:07

leading Brexiteers, Michael Gove,

had his say. He praised the deal,

0:09:070:09:13

but in an article in the Daily

Telegraph, suggested voters could

0:09:130:09:17

use the next general election if

they wanted to reject any final

0:09:170:09:20

agreement.

0:09:200:09:22

Michael Gove welcomed the deal with

the EU, and yesterday he publicly

0:09:220:09:27

praised the Prime Minister for her

work. But I think in a sign of the

0:09:270:09:31

challenges to come for Theresa May,

the environment Secretary, who is of

0:09:310:09:34

course one of the leading Leave

campaigners in the Cabinet, has

0:09:340:09:39

suggested that if the British people

dislike the arrangement negotiated

0:09:390:09:42

with Brussels, well, a future

government could choose to go in a

0:09:420:09:47

different direction. Michael Gove

wrote in the Daily Telegraph and

0:09:470:09:50

said that after a two year

transition, outside the EU, the

0:09:500:09:56

British people will be in control

and will have full freedom to

0:09:560:10:00

diverged from European law on the

single market and Customs union.

0:10:000:10:04

Having made sufficient progress on

the terms of the UK's departure from

0:10:040:10:08

the EU, the Brexit talks can now

move on to the future relationship

0:10:080:10:12

with the EU. But the Cabinet has yet

to agree on what that final deal

0:10:120:10:17

will look like. I think Theresa May

knows that's the toughest decisions

0:10:170:10:22

in these negotiations are yet to

come, and about the talks have a

0:10:220:10:27

long way to go. Well, Eleanor was

certainly right about that. We will

0:10:270:10:32

be talking about it sometimes come.

Not surprisingly, on the front pages

0:10:320:10:37

today, Brexit is being touted.

"Made's try of wanted by Task

0:10:370:10:43

warning on top choices ahead". Of

course everybody is pleased that the

0:10:430:10:48

first phase of Brexit negotiations

seem to have been passed through. We

0:10:480:10:52

have the handshake here between

Theresa May and Jean-Claude Juncker.

0:10:520:10:55

But there is a lot more trade talk

to come. And tough talk to come, as

0:10:550:11:00

the negotiations continue.

Yes, the

newspapers are very clear in their

0:11:000:11:05

stance in relation to what happened

yesterday. The Daily Mirror, free

0:11:050:11:08

example, with the headline Mrs

Softee. Theresa May's deal with the

0:11:080:11:12

EU will mean soft Brexit. Britain

will pay for the divorce bill. The

0:11:120:11:17

Prime Minister has abandoned her red

line to break the deadlock. That is

0:11:170:11:21

contrasting with the Daily Mail.

Indeed. Rejoice, we are on our way.

0:11:210:11:26

This historic handshake on the front

page of the FT. The Daily Mail says

0:11:260:11:32

it has sealed a vital step in the

UK's exit from the EU.

And on the

0:11:320:11:36

front page of the times, made

bounces back. Rejuvenated, suggests

0:11:360:11:44

the Times newspaper, as we move onto

the next set of talks, which

0:11:440:11:47

everybody says will be the hard

ones.

John Koorda Jon Kay yesterday

0:11:470:11:52

praised Theresa May for being so

affable and easy to negotiate with.

0:11:520:11:56

-- Jean-Claude Juncker. It sounds as

though there was no snapping, no

0:11:560:12:01

biting.

I see what you've done.

Here

we go. Only because of this picture,

0:12:010:12:07

which I like. This is a saltwater

crocodile, a 20 foot saltwater

0:12:070:12:12

crocodile. It has a name. His name

is Dominator. And for being one of

0:12:120:12:18

the most aggressive crocodiles in

the region in Australia's Northern

0:12:180:12:21

Territory. This has been snapped by

a tourist on a neighbouring boat.

0:12:210:12:29

What you can see, if you look

closely at some of the reactions,

0:12:290:12:33

people are shocked.

Wisely keeping

their arms inside the boat.

Indeed.

0:12:330:12:39

If you go out on a wildlife safari,

that is what you want to see.

That

0:12:390:12:44

is for sure. Lots of interest in the

weather through this weekend. We've

0:12:440:12:48

been talking about snow, there was

some yesterday. More forecast for

0:12:480:12:52

later today, is that right?

0:12:520:12:53

some yesterday. More forecast for

later today, is that right?

0:12:530:12:54

That's right, in the form of snow

showers, affecting areas like we saw

0:12:560:13:01

yesterday, mainly northern and

western coastal areas. Most of us

0:13:010:13:04

started this morning very cold and

frosty but with lots of sunshine.

0:13:040:13:08

The snow showers are continuing

across parts of northern and western

0:13:080:13:11

areas, giving quite a bit of snow

and places. They will be fairly

0:13:110:13:15

isolated. Watch out, there are still

low lying snow around and there will

0:13:150:13:19

be a problem with ice where we had

snow showers yesterday. This is

0:13:190:13:23

where the snow showers are falling.

Northern Scotland, parts of Northern

0:13:230:13:28

Ireland, through Cheshire,

Merseyside, northern and western

0:13:280:13:30

Wales. This is where they will be

through the day. Not as widespread

0:13:300:13:34

and ready. We should see a few

pushing further north in towards

0:13:340:13:37

leisure and the Manchester area.

That said, it will be a gorgeous day

0:13:370:13:41

if you love the sunshine. Wrap up

and head out and enjoy the sunshine.

0:13:410:13:45

Things get interesting this evening

and overnight. Temperatures falling

0:13:450:13:50

away very quickly. Then we see this

band of heavy rain moving up from

0:13:500:13:54

the south-west. That will turn very

quickly to snow as it romps into

0:13:540:13:57

that cold out. The main threat will

be around the Midlands and parts of

0:13:570:14:01

northern Wales in southern northern

England. Ten centimetres in places,

0:14:010:14:06

maybe even 20. The Met Office have

issued an amber warnings of this,

0:14:060:14:11

which means to be prepared. There

will be some disruption as we head

0:14:110:14:16

into early hours on Sunday. That's

no longer further north and south to

0:14:160:14:21

peter out and turn back into rain as

the mild array starts to pushing

0:14:210:14:25

from the south-west. Eight or nine

degrees here and much colder further

0:14:250:14:29

north. Plenty of sunshine here. That

is our Sunday is looking, as we head

0:14:290:14:34

into Monday. We are now looking to

the south of the country. This deep

0:14:340:14:39

area of low pressure, this storm

expected to impact France. It could

0:14:390:14:45

also impact southern parts of the

UK. Sunday afternoon, we are looking

0:14:450:14:49

at strong, maybe severe gale force

winds across the south. It could

0:14:490:14:53

again be windy and a very wet across

the south and south-east. Further

0:14:530:14:57

snow is potentially possible over

the high ground. Tuesday, much

0:14:570:15:00

quieter. Those areas of low pressure

moving away, and we end up with dry

0:15:000:15:05

around brighter weather with

sunshine. It stays cold through the

0:15:050:15:08

week and is set to stay cold in the

run-up to Christmas. There is no

0:15:080:15:14

mild weather on the cards yet.

0:15:140:15:19

Thank you very much, and a lovely

picture to finish with.

It is the

0:15:190:15:25

most expensive television show ever

made, costing an estimated £100

0:15:250:15:30

million and after scooping the

Golden Globe for best TV series, The

0:15:300:15:35

Crown returned yesterday for its

second series on Netflix. The

0:15:350:15:38

company, along with companies like

Amazon and Apple are ploughing

0:15:380:15:42

millions into original programming,

changing the way we watch

0:15:420:15:46

television. Our media editor has

more.

0:15:460:15:48

70 years ago, the wedding

of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip

0:15:480:15:52

was broadcast on a single

channel in black-and-white.

0:15:520:15:54

The world has changed.

0:15:540:15:55

Today, their marriage

and times has been dramatised

0:15:550:15:57

in a multimillion-pound,

high-tech production,

0:15:570:15:59

consumed on a range of devices.

0:15:590:16:03

Yet this very British story

was made by Netflix,

0:16:030:16:05

not the BBC.

0:16:050:16:08

The company now boasts over 100

million subscribers,

0:16:080:16:11

and was irresistible to the British

executive behind The Crown.

0:16:110:16:15

Well, you know, you can get to see

tech companies very,

0:16:150:16:19

very easily, and they make

decisions very speedily,

0:16:190:16:22

and they seem to have lots of money.

0:16:220:16:24

So all of these are very attractive

qualities when you're trying to sell

0:16:240:16:27

a TV show.

0:16:270:16:28

Netflix have said they will

spend up to £6 billion

0:16:280:16:31

on programmes next year.

0:16:310:16:32

That is around double

the BBC's entire budget.

0:16:320:16:34

Meanwhile, according

to analysts at JP Morgan,

0:16:340:16:36

Amazon will spend £3.5 billion

on video content next year,

0:16:360:16:39

with mega-productions such

as their version of Top Gear top

0:16:390:16:41

of the list.

0:16:410:16:42

And now Apple, the world's richest

company, is now also moving

0:16:420:16:45

into original programming.

0:16:450:16:48

It will probably spend at least £750

million next year on content,

0:16:480:16:51

small fry for a company whose value

is approaching $1 trillion.

0:16:510:16:55

Companies like Netflix and Amazon

are part of a worldwide transition

0:16:550:16:58

from scheduled TV to online

and on-demand broadcasting.

0:16:580:17:04

These tech firms have discovered

that consumers will pay for content

0:17:040:17:07

online, provided it is of

sufficiently high quality.

0:17:070:17:10

And that is why they are now

shamelessly pursuing not just young

0:17:100:17:13

and digitally savvy audiences,

but also older viewers,

0:17:130:17:15

whose loyalty traditionally

lies elsewhere.

0:17:150:17:20

And yet that loyalty to traditional

broadcasters endures.

0:17:200:17:24

For the likes of Channel 4

and the BBC, superstar shows

0:17:240:17:27

like Great British Bake Off

and Blue Planet are still watched

0:17:270:17:30

by up to 10 million people,

and generate national conversation.

0:17:300:17:35

The streaming services of Netflix

and Amazon are certainly making

0:17:350:17:38

a very powerful mark,

and that's great for consumers.

0:17:380:17:40

My worry is that we can see over

the next decade the amount of money

0:17:400:17:44

going into content made in Britain,

for British audiences,

0:17:440:17:47

dramas that reflect British lives,

comedies that reflect the UK,

0:17:470:17:51

documentaries, and so on,

is going to go down.

0:17:510:17:54

And I think that we would be

the poorer for that.

0:17:540:18:00

As the next chair of Bafta argues,

older broadcasters will have to form

0:18:000:18:03

alliances with new ones

if they are to thrive.

0:18:030:18:06

The danger will come

if the streaming services no longer

0:18:060:18:08

need that money from the BBC

or ITV or Channel 4,

0:18:080:18:11

because they want to fully fund

something, and take world rights.

0:18:110:18:19

The internet has simultaneously

undermined the business model

0:18:190:18:22

of broadcasters reliant

on advertising, while giving paying

0:18:220:18:24

customers unprecedented

quality and choice.

0:18:240:18:27

Luckily for viewers,

this is a revolution that

0:18:270:18:29

will be televised.

0:18:290:18:30

Amol Rajan, BBC News.

0:18:300:18:34

We will have a summary

of the news in a moment.

0:18:340:18:37

But first it's time

for The Film Review,

0:18:370:18:39

with Mark Kermode and Jane Hill.

0:18:390:18:41

Welcome to the Film

Review on BBC News.

0:18:560:18:58

To take us through this week's

cinema releases is Mark Kermode.

0:18:580:19:01

What have you been watching, Mark?

0:19:010:19:03

We have Stronger, which is a film

about the Boston bombing survivor

0:19:030:19:06

Jeff Bowman.

0:19:060:19:08

Human Flow, a very affecting

documentary by Ai Weiwei.

0:19:080:19:15

And The Dinner.

0:19:150:19:19

Steve Coogan and Richard

Gere together at last.

0:19:190:19:22

We can discuss that.

0:19:220:19:24

Stronger, I mean, people

will remember so vividly

0:19:240:19:26

the Boston Marathon bombing and this

is very much about the aftermath.

0:19:260:19:29

So Jake Gyllenhaal as a Jeff Bowman,

who was a young Bostonian

0:19:290:19:33

who was there at the finishing line

and was involved in the blast

0:19:330:19:36

and lost both his legs.

0:19:360:19:38

And having survived the bombing then

had to rebuild his life both

0:19:380:19:41

physically and indeed, mentally.

0:19:410:19:42

And deal with the fact he'd suddenly

become right at the centre

0:19:420:19:45

of the spotlight, which saw him

in many ways as the embodiment

0:19:450:19:48

of the Boston Strong mantra.

0:19:480:19:52

Here's a clip.

0:19:520:19:57

When you're ready, scooch ahead

before you stand up.

0:20:010:20:06

Yeah.

0:20:130:20:13

OK.

0:20:130:20:16

OK, scooch ahead.

0:20:160:20:19

Up, hips back.

0:20:190:20:22

Chest up.

0:20:220:20:22

Chest up.

0:20:220:20:25

Chest up, Chest up.

0:20:250:20:27

Good, good, OK?

0:20:270:20:31

Good.

0:20:310:20:37

It's a little sore.

0:20:370:20:40

It's like needles on my legs.

0:20:400:20:43

You look awesome.

0:20:430:20:48

It looks amazing.

0:20:480:20:49

Keep going.

0:20:490:20:52

I can't, I can't.

0:20:520:20:54

Good job, good job.

0:20:540:21:03

Now the story's extraordinary,

not least because when he wakes up

0:21:030:21:06

in hospital the first

thing he does is say,

0:21:060:21:08

I saw the bombers.

0:21:080:21:10

He wants to pass

on that information.

0:21:100:21:11

But what the film is really,

really interested in is the way

0:21:110:21:15

in which his struggle

to recover works.

0:21:150:21:17

And also his relationship

with his originally on-

0:21:170:21:19

off girlfriend and his

mother and his family.

0:21:190:21:21

You saw Miranda Richardson

as his mother, who is

0:21:210:21:23

really, really terrific.

0:21:230:21:24

And I think what central

to it is the film doesn't play him

0:21:240:21:28

as a hero, it plays him as somebody

who is in a position,

0:21:280:21:31

you know, which they had

nothing to do with.

0:21:310:21:34

And suddenly find themselves

in the centre of this great personal

0:21:340:21:37

struggle and suddenly find

themselves the centre

0:21:370:21:39

of all this media attention.

0:21:390:21:40

And if you know, on the one

hand doing this very,

0:21:400:21:43

very heroic thing, but on the other

hand finding it very hard to cope

0:21:430:21:47

with that attention.

0:21:470:21:48

What I like about the film

is that it doesn't try and paint

0:21:480:21:52

two dimensional pictures.

0:21:520:21:53

He has fractious relationships

with his family, with his

0:21:530:21:55

girlfriend, he goes

through different phases.

0:21:550:21:57

I think what happens with the movie

is it involves you in the story

0:21:570:22:00

in a way that you genuinely believe

that what you're seeing

0:22:000:22:03

is a realistic portrayal.

0:22:030:22:04

It's not exploitative,

it's melodramatic.

0:22:040:22:10

I think it's based

on a book he wrote.

0:22:100:22:13

Absolutely.

0:22:130:22:13

The details are true.

0:22:130:22:14

We've seen enough Hollywood movies

which are doing triumph over

0:22:140:22:17

adversity, that do so in a way

that is kind of saccharine and very

0:22:170:22:21

sentimental and relies very heavily

on sentimentality and melodrama.

0:22:210:22:23

I found this very moving.

0:22:230:22:25

There are moments that make you cry,

moments that make you laugh.

0:22:250:22:28

The most important thing was it

seemed honest it seemed truthful.

0:22:280:22:31

It was done in a way that is low-key

enough to never feel

0:22:310:22:35

like what it was doing

was exploiting the situation at all.

0:22:350:22:38

I was surprisingly moved by it.

0:22:380:22:39

It doesn't change the format

of film, it doesn't do anything

0:22:390:22:42

major to the structure,

the kind of story we've seen before.

0:22:420:22:47

But it plays it well and played

it in a heartfelt way.

0:22:470:22:50

It feels like an honest endeavour

that was moving and affecting.

0:22:500:22:57

The Ai Weiwei film,

your second choice.

0:22:570:23:01

Human Flow.

0:23:010:23:04

Sadly I haven't seen it yet.

0:23:040:23:05

I can only assume that it is

unbelievably, unbearably moving.

0:23:050:23:08

It is very moving.

0:23:080:23:09

Ai Weiwei is a conceptual artist,

this is about the current refugee

0:23:090:23:13

crisis and the humanitarian disaster

unfolding around the world.

0:23:130:23:15

It's a portrait of global

displacement, different people

0:23:150:23:17

forced to move from their homes

for horrific reasons.

0:23:170:23:20

Shot in 25 countries.

0:23:200:23:21

20 countries, 25 film crews.

0:23:210:23:23

Some of the footage is hand-held.

0:23:230:23:27

Some of it, these extraordinary

aerial shots, drone shots,

0:23:270:23:30

of huge numbers of people moving

through incredibly hostile

0:23:300:23:34

terrain, refugee camps.

0:23:340:23:39

We do get interviews,

we do get discussions,

0:23:390:23:41

but the most affecting stuff is this

sort of image of humanity

0:23:410:23:45

on the move, and the persistence

of barriers and borders

0:23:450:23:47

and boundaries and people rather

than receiving welcome

0:23:470:23:50

facing a wall.

0:23:500:23:54

It is a film that has a cumulative

impact over the course of the movie

0:23:540:23:59

you do become overwhelmed

by the scope of this.

0:23:590:24:01

But I think, again, it's a very

interesting piece of film-making

0:24:010:24:04

because it is using film to tell

the story in a way which is,

0:24:040:24:08

you know, specifically visual.

0:24:080:24:09

We do get discussions

of these terrifying subjects

0:24:090:24:11

as the film plays out.

0:24:110:24:12

The stuff that works less well

is when we see Ai Weiwei talking

0:24:120:24:16

to some of the refugees,

that the stuff that actually,

0:24:160:24:19

we enough, has less impact

than when you see the scope

0:24:190:24:22

of what the film is depicting,

it's called Human Flow.

0:24:220:24:24

OK.

0:24:240:24:27

The Dinner.

0:24:270:24:29

Yes.

0:24:290:24:29

What did you think?

0:24:320:24:33

Well...

0:24:330:24:34

Hmm.

0:24:340:24:36

OK.

0:24:360:24:37

It's the latest from Oren Moverman,

and it's adapted from a novel.

0:24:370:24:40

It is the story of the hidden

violence of the bourgeoisie.

0:24:400:24:43

It's also one of those things

that asks the question,

0:24:430:24:46

what would you do to

protect a loved one?

0:24:460:24:48

In upstate New York two chalk

and cheese brothers,

0:24:480:24:50

played by Steve Coogan

and Richard Gere, you couldn't get

0:24:500:24:53

more chalk and cheese.

0:24:530:24:54

And their respective partners,

Rebecca Hall and Laura Linney.

0:24:540:24:57

They meet in an upmarket restaurant.

0:24:570:24:58

Coogan's character is tetchy

and awkward and difficult.

0:24:580:25:00

Richard Gere is a smooth politician.

0:25:000:25:02

But there is a terrible family

secret they have to discuss.

0:25:020:25:05

Here is a clip.

0:25:050:25:06

This is long overdue.

0:25:060:25:08

What were you talking about?

0:25:080:25:09

We were just enjoying one

of those awkward pauses,

0:25:090:25:12

as they say.

0:25:120:25:16

Not talking about anything.

0:25:160:25:17

Not talking about anything.

0:25:170:25:19

Well we're going to talk tonight.

0:25:190:25:21

Put it all on the table.

0:25:210:25:25

There's a lot going on.

0:25:250:25:29

Are you OK?

0:25:300:25:34

Don't.

0:25:340:25:35

Perhaps there's a better table.

0:25:350:25:37

It's really, it's all

right, we're fine here.

0:25:370:25:40

Actually, actually, the other

room I think is better.

0:25:400:25:43

As private as a fish tank.

0:25:430:25:47

There's something wrong,

let me check, just a second.

0:25:470:25:50

I actually agree.

0:25:500:25:51

I'm not moving.

0:25:510:25:52

What's interesting about this

is this discussion they're not

0:25:520:25:55

having, that they move

towards having, plays out over

0:25:550:25:57

the courses of this

ridiculously elaborate dinner.

0:25:570:25:59

Each course is, you know,

described by the maitre d'

0:25:590:26:02

in incredible terms.

0:26:020:26:03

At the centre of the discussion

is this hidden secret

0:26:030:26:05

about something which has happened

with their children.

0:26:050:26:08

And I think the film has got

really good performances.

0:26:080:26:10

Great cast, really

good ensemble cast.

0:26:100:26:12

Oren Moverman got a very good

performance out of Richard Gere

0:26:120:26:17

previously in a film

in which Richard Gere is playing

0:26:170:26:19

a homeless man.

0:26:190:26:24

Actually, Ai Weiwei got a really

good performance out of him.

0:26:240:26:27

The problem with the film to some

extent is it probably two courses

0:26:270:26:31

too long, it's two hours and it

should be 89 minutes.

0:26:310:26:34

When we at the table,

when that kind of...

0:26:340:26:36

The unspoken arguments are sort

of broiling and seething away

0:26:360:26:39

I think it works rather well.

0:26:390:26:40

It then has this kind of flashback

structure in which it moves back

0:26:400:26:44

to events in the past

and we see things unfolding

0:26:440:26:47

from lots of different perspectives.

0:26:470:26:48

To me, that works

slightly less well.

0:26:480:26:50

I'm some people have really

taken against the movie.

0:26:500:26:52

One of the reasons is, they're

pretty claustrophobic company.

0:26:520:26:55

They're not people you want

to spend that much time

0:26:550:26:58

in their company because...

0:26:580:27:01

Steve Coogan's character

is so difficult, so awkward.

0:27:010:27:04

Richard Gere's character seems to be

so smooth and so smarmy.

0:27:040:27:07

Yet during the course of the drama

it does play with our expectations

0:27:070:27:11

of how each character's

motivations will fall.

0:27:110:27:12

It's flawed, no question about it,

and it is at least two courses too

0:27:120:27:16

long, but in the middle of it

there is a main course

0:27:160:27:19

which is well worth trying.

0:27:190:27:21

I think I absolutely killed the food

metaphor stone dead now.

0:27:210:27:29

We've done it but we knew

what you meant by it.

0:27:290:27:33

Let's not do it again.

0:27:330:27:34

I'm so delighted you have chosen

this, because it encouraged me

0:27:340:27:37

to see it again, a film

I haven't seen probably

0:27:370:27:40

since I was at university.

0:27:400:27:41

A Matter of Life and Death.

0:27:410:27:47

An absolute delight.

0:27:470:27:48

One of the greatest

movies ever made.

0:27:480:27:49

It made immediately in the aftermath

of the war, the Ministry

0:27:490:27:52

of information said to Powell

and Pressburger, could you please

0:27:520:27:55

make a film that would encourage

the Brits and the Americans

0:27:550:27:58

to like each other more.

0:27:580:27:59

And they came up with A Matter

of Life and Death, which ends up

0:27:590:28:03

being a story about this

world and the next.

0:28:030:28:06

It's just been rereleased

in a 4K print.

0:28:060:28:08

It's so moving.

0:28:080:28:14

It starts with David Niven

as a doomed airman, you know,

0:28:140:28:17

falling in love with

somebody just on a radio.

0:28:170:28:20

Then he evades death

because the emissary from the other

0:28:200:28:22

world coming to get him gets lost

in the fog of the channel.

0:28:220:28:26

It's a film that plays out you can

either read it as a psychological

0:28:260:28:30

drama or read it as another wordly

drama, or you can just read it

0:28:300:28:34

as a comedian, some slightly

metaphysical romance.

0:28:340:28:35

It's funny and smart

and looks brilliant.

0:28:350:28:37

Extraordinary cinematography.

0:28:370:28:38

How many times have you seen it?

0:28:380:28:40

I think this was only my second.

0:28:400:28:42

But you, you know, effectively

forced me to watch it again this

0:28:420:28:45

week and I just thought,

some of the script is wonderful.

0:28:450:28:48

It's just...

0:28:480:28:48

It is, I hate to say this,

the kind of film they just don't

0:28:480:28:52

make any more.

0:28:520:28:53

Yet it's incredibly future looking.

0:28:530:28:54

It does that brilliant thing

of converting the Wizard of Oz,

0:28:540:28:57

everything down on earth

is in Technicolor, everything

0:28:570:29:00

in the other world is in black

and white, which inverts

0:29:000:29:02

what you would actually expect.

0:29:020:29:04

It's one of the greatest

movies ever made.

0:29:040:29:06

If not, arguably,

the greatest movie ever made.

0:29:060:29:08

And it's out again.

0:29:080:29:09

From 1946.

Fantastic.

0:29:090:29:10

Very quick thought about DVD.

Atomic Blonde.

0:29:100:29:12

I mean basically this is a sort of,

you know, and adaptation

0:29:120:29:15

of the graphic novel Coldest City.

0:29:150:29:17

It's a tale of spies and neon.

0:29:170:29:19

Charlize Theron is having

an absolute ball in it.

0:29:190:29:21

It doesn't make a lot of sense,

but it's very stylish

0:29:210:29:24

and it's very entertaining.

0:29:240:29:25

It could be, I think

there is a place for,

0:29:250:29:28

you know, the stylish,

stylishly empty film,

0:29:280:29:30

and this is it.

0:29:300:29:31

I enjoyed it very much,

though it's probably

0:29:310:29:33

a guilty pleasure.

0:29:330:29:34

I love that, stylishly empty.

Marvellous.

0:29:340:29:36

What a way to end.

0:29:360:29:37

Thank you very much, Mark,

see you again next week.

0:29:370:29:40

Plenty to discuss this week,

as we've just proved.

0:29:400:29:42

Enjoy your cinema viewing this week.

0:29:420:29:44

See you next time.

Bye bye.

0:29:440:29:45

Hello, this is Breakfast

with Charlie Stayt and Naga

0:30:130:30:15

Munchetty.

0:30:150:30:17

Here's a summary of today's main

stories from BBC News.

0:30:170:30:20

The Foreign Secretary,

Boris Johnson, is due to arrive

0:30:200:30:23

in Iran in the next few hours,

where he's expected to press

0:30:230:30:26

for the release of the

British-Iranian woman,

0:30:260:30:28

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe.

0:30:280:30:28

The aid-worker has been held

prisoner in the country

0:30:280:30:31

since April 2016.

0:30:310:30:31

She's accused of trying to overthrow

the Iranian government -

0:30:310:30:34

a charge she denies.

0:30:340:30:35

It's expected Mr Johnson will also

discuss Britain's wider relations

0:30:350:30:38

with Iran.

0:30:380:30:40

One of the Cabinet's leading

Brexiteers has suggested that voters

0:30:400:30:43

can use the next general election

to have their say on a final deal

0:30:430:30:55

with the European Union -

and to force a future government

0:30:550:30:59

to change course if

they don't like it.

0:30:590:31:01

The Environment Secretary,

Michael Gove, makes his comments

0:31:010:31:03

in The Daily Telegraph,

a day after Theresa May's agreement

0:31:030:31:06

in Brussels cleared

the way for trade talks.

0:31:060:31:10

The Cabinet is expected to meet

in the next fortnight to discuss

0:31:100:31:13

Britain's future

relationship with the EU.

0:31:130:31:14

Israel has launched further air

strikes against Hamas military

0:31:140:31:17

positions in the Gaza Strip,

in retaliation for Palestinian

0:31:170:31:19

rocket attacks on southern Israel.

0:31:190:31:21

Palestinians and Israeli security

forces have clashed in the West Bank

0:31:210:31:24

since President Trump recognised

Jerusalem as Israel's

0:31:240:31:26

capital on Wednesday.

0:31:260:31:26

Yesterday, the US Ambassador,

Nikki Haley, defended Donald Trump's

0:31:260:31:29

comments and accused the UN

of bias against Israel.

0:31:290:31:33

Over many years, the United Nations

has outrageously been at the world's

0:31:330:31:37

foremost centres of

hostility towards Israel.

0:31:370:31:38

The UN has done much more damage

to the prospects for Middle East

0:31:380:31:42

peace than to advance them.

0:31:420:31:50

The wintry weather looks set

to continue with Met Office warnings

0:31:500:31:53

in place for large parts of the UK.

0:31:530:31:55

More snow is expected in northern

and eastern regions over

0:31:550:31:58

the weekend.

0:31:580:32:01

The freezing conditions caused

significant disruption to commuters

0:32:010:32:03

yesterday and hundreds of properties

in the West Midlands

0:32:030:32:06

are still without power.

0:32:060:32:07

Simon Clemison has this report.

0:32:070:32:09

Some of these reindeer

are getting their first taste

0:32:090:32:11

of snow in Dudley.

0:32:110:32:13

And in the early hours,

more snowfalls have been reported

0:32:130:32:15

across the UK, although conditions

are expect to ease for today.

0:32:150:32:20

At Manchester Airport,

wings have had to be de-iced.

0:32:200:32:26

An image some are

about to leave behind.

0:32:260:32:29

Shropshire is somewhere

in this picture.

0:32:290:32:34

Undeterred.

0:32:340:32:36

On the Isle of Man,

the weekend began early,

0:32:360:32:38

as all schools were closed.

0:32:380:32:40

Elsewhere, there have been

problems on the roads.

0:32:400:32:42

The extremes of the weather

are expected to eventually be

0:32:420:32:44

confined to north-east Scotland,

but tomorrow, a spell of heavy snow

0:32:440:32:47

is likely over the Midlands

and parts of Wales and northern

0:32:470:32:50

England.

0:32:500:32:53

20cm is quite significant.

0:32:530:32:55

We will press ahead of that,

we will salt ahead of that,

0:32:550:32:58

but past 20cm we might have

to reduce the network and keep

0:32:580:33:01

key routes open.

0:33:010:33:02

That is much as you can do -

20cm is significant.

0:33:020:33:17

The Met Office is warning that some

in the countryside may be cut off -

0:33:170:33:21

if the skies were not

convincing enough.

0:33:210:33:24

And we will have a full forecast

later in the programme.

0:33:240:33:29

An urgent review into

the availability of free to use ATMs

0:33:290:33:32

is needed to make sure customers

do not struggle to access cash.

0:33:320:33:35

This is according to

the consumer watchdog Which.

0:33:350:33:37

The UK's largest ATM network, Link,

wants to cut the fees charged

0:33:370:33:40

to ATM users.

0:33:400:33:41

But there are concerns

an overhaul of the network

0:33:410:33:47

could reduce the number

of free-to-access ATMs

0:33:470:33:49

available to customers.

0:33:490:33:50

Link could potentially reduce

the number of ATMs in the UK

0:33:500:33:54

or increase the number

of paid-for ATMs in the UK.

0:33:540:33:57

We want to ensure that consumers

have access to money in the way

0:33:570:34:00

they want to, particularly

in the face of closing bank

0:34:000:34:03

branches, where people find it more

and more difficult to get hold

0:34:030:34:06

of a bank and get their money

the way they want to.

0:34:060:34:09

Those are the main stories. We must

remind you, Mike, I know that you

0:34:090:34:15

are waiting on tenterhooks...

Good

morning.

All you are thinking about

0:34:150:34:19

is the Fifa World Cup.

Well, it is

only six months away. It is keeping

0:34:190:34:24

me awake at night.

Why don't we talk

about it now? You are dreaming about

0:34:240:34:28

it, managers and players are

dreaming about how their teens might

0:34:280:34:32

do, but they are not the only ones?

Everybody remembers the success of

0:34:320:34:35

this fellow.

Paul.

Yes, this German

octopus became famous for his

0:34:350:34:42

convictions in the 2010 tournament.

So who will be the next Paul?

There

0:34:420:34:49

have been some rubbish attempts.

There was an elephant, there was my

0:34:490:34:55

dog Basil. A cat, he wasn't

interested. They do not all have

0:34:550:35:04

Paul's ability. Lots of people in

the next few months around world

0:35:040:35:08

will be trying to find the next

Paul.

Do we know what happened to

0:35:080:35:11

Paul?

Well, he got old, and what

happens when you get old?

No!

And

0:35:110:35:18

octopus is such an excellent choice,

though.

Eight legs. Tentacles, not

0:35:180:35:23

legs. And they are very intelligent.

Very.

I wonder if Paul come wherever

0:35:230:35:29

he is, would have a clue about the

Manchester derby tomorrow. They are

0:35:290:35:33

saying that one seventh of the

world's deletion will be keeping a

0:35:330:35:37

nigh on Manchester, because they are

the top two teams. -- world's top

0:35:370:35:41

elation.

One seventh!

Yeah,

incredible, isn't it?

The whole

0:35:410:35:47

world?

Yeah. And we also have the

Merseyside derby tomorrow. But let's

0:35:470:35:54

focus on today first.

0:35:540:35:57

So all eyes on Manchester

and Merseyside tomorrow,

0:35:570:35:59

but this lunchtime, it's East

against West London,

0:35:590:36:01

as West Ham host Chelsea.

0:36:010:36:02

The Hammers are in the bottom three

and looking for a first win under

0:36:020:36:06

new manager David Moyes.

0:36:060:36:07

But despite their position,

the Scot thinks, he is starting

0:36:070:36:10

to make his mark, on his new squad.

0:36:100:36:12

I don't want to get too carried away

but the players have been very good.

0:36:120:36:16

They have tried to take on board

everything. They are doing their

0:36:160:36:19

work. As I said from the start, they

will have to do the work if they

0:36:190:36:24

want to play. Hopefully they are all

doing that.

0:36:240:36:27

There was late drama

in the Championship last night.

0:36:270:36:30

Aden Flint, scoring this last minute

winner for Bristol City

0:36:300:36:32

against Sheffield United.

0:36:320:36:33

The 2-1 win sees the Robins,

leapfrog their opponents,

0:36:330:36:36

to go third in the table.

0:36:360:36:44

They could have lost their manager

to Rangers this week that Aberdeen

0:36:440:36:49

repaid McGuinness for staying in

charge of a 1-0 win at Dundee. This

0:36:490:36:52

goal at the break was enough to seal

the three points which means

0:36:520:36:57

Aberdeen into second place in the

Scottish Premiership, three points

0:36:570:37:00

above Rangers, before they play

tomorrow. The Premier League could

0:37:000:37:04

be taking on strictly come dancing

and The X Factor in a right royal

0:37:040:37:08

battle for viewers on a Saturday

evening. Eight games will be played

0:37:080:37:11

in a 7:45pm slot under a new TV

package which will start in the

0:37:110:37:16

2019-20 season. Broadcasters will be

able to bid to show 200 games per

0:37:160:37:21

season, more than half of all

matches. Next, a big blow for Wales'

0:37:210:37:25

Six Nations campaign. Captain Sam

Orbison has been ruled out of whole

0:37:250:37:30

tournament. The 29 York has had knee

surgery on an existing injury and

0:37:300:37:34

will be out to six months. --

29-year-old. Glasgow are out of the

0:37:340:37:40

European Champions Cup after a home

defeat to Montpelier. The French

0:37:400:37:43

side opened the scoring with the try

of the match from Kelian Galletier,

0:37:430:37:54

and Glasgow Diddley 17- five, at one

stage, but ended up losing 29- 22.

0:37:540:37:59

The Rocket will play Simon Bligh in

the semifinals, while Shaun Murphy

0:37:590:38:03

will play Ryan Day in the other

semi. Whatever happens, Sullivan's

0:38:030:38:06

match, he feels he cannot lose.

It

was win- win because I thought, if

0:38:060:38:13

they get beaten, at least I get home

to dinner. And if I win I have

0:38:130:38:18

another day here. I have to have a

win- win in some way. At this stage

0:38:180:38:22

of the game...

There are quite a few

places around here that will do

0:38:220:38:28

dinner for you.

Yes, but I would

like to see my Mrs. I gave up a

0:38:280:38:32

while ago, I like to do my own

thing. Whatever happens in the game

0:38:320:38:36

is great, I pick and choose what I

want to do. I think my happiness

0:38:360:38:40

comes in doing other things away

from snooker.

0:38:400:38:42

That kind of helps. When the

pressure is off, you don't really

0:38:420:38:46

care.

A refreshing attitude.

What a

position, to pick and choose what

0:38:460:38:50

you want to do. I'm pleased with

him.

Yes, I like his outlook on

0:38:500:38:54

life. Down under next, a chance for

some of the players on the fringes

0:38:540:38:59

of the England Ashes squad to make a

case for starting in the third test

0:38:590:39:03

in Perth next week with England 2-0

down. Open a Keaton Jennings did

0:39:030:39:06

that by scoring 80 against a

cricketer Australian 11. Batting

0:39:060:39:13

first, the tourists are 201-7. Not

great. England's Charley Hull is in

0:39:130:39:18

contention for victory going into

the final round of the Dubai ladies

0:39:180:39:22

classic. She shot a five under par

67 in her third round yesterday to

0:39:220:39:26

finish on nine under par, just three

shots behind leader and Van Dam of

0:39:260:39:31

the Netherlands. Now, it is snowing

here in some parts. It is also

0:39:310:39:36

slowing, surprisingly, in Germany,

where Lizzie Arnold, in eight weeks

0:39:360:39:40

time, she will try to become the

first written sharply to retain a

0:39:400:39:43

Winter Olympics title. The season is

not going to plan for the skeleton

0:39:430:39:47

bob slider. She won the gold in

Sochi four years ago, but yesterday

0:39:470:39:51

falling snow hampered her and she

can it 13th place in the latest

0:39:510:39:55

World Cup event at which as Berg in

Germany. What can you do in a

0:39:550:39:59

snowstorm, she tweeted?

--

Wintersburg. A perfect name to that

0:39:590:40:03

base.

Wintersburg? I was actually

with her the other day for a

0:40:030:40:09

feature. I didn't go bob is leading.

You did?

I still have a sore throat.

0:40:090:40:14

From screening?

No, I thought I was

being strangled by the GeForce. You

0:40:140:40:20

are so low down, it is like somebody

is pushing your throat. Into your

0:40:200:40:24

stomach. While hitting you with a

hammer at the same time. Because I

0:40:240:40:28

was the break person, at the back.

Full respect to those athletes.

What

0:40:280:40:33

else? Anything else?

Want to see

what Bradley Wiggins is doing now?

0:40:330:40:39

We are used to seeing him on two

wheels but the former tour to France

0:40:390:40:43

and Olympic gold medal winning

cyclist has got off his bike and is

0:40:430:40:47

competing as a role for the first

time today. Sir Bradley, who is now

0:40:470:40:50

37, will take part in the 2000 metre

race at the British indoor

0:40:500:40:54

Championships. He is being coached

by Libby gold-medallist James

0:40:540:40:57

Cracknell.

What is he doing?

A

rowing machines -- machine.

You

0:40:570:41:08

still wouldn't bet against him.

No,

you can't take the athlete out of

0:41:080:41:12

somebody. Jumping fences and riding

through fire, this perhaps mean

0:41:120:41:17

somebody's skills are more extreme

than the likes of a P McAuley and

0:41:170:41:20

Nick Skelton. Now, the net mounted

police are gearing up to show off

0:41:200:41:24

their stuff at the horse of the year

show this week. -- the Met. I joined

0:41:240:41:29

them in training to find out how

these skills help them prepare for

0:41:290:41:33

being on the beat.

0:41:330:41:37

They are the heavyweights of the

equestrian world, with some of the

0:41:370:41:41

bravest writers. Despite the size

and the weight of these beasts, it

0:41:410:41:46

is all about the most delicate

position and accuracy. As they jump

0:41:460:41:49

through fire and even managed to

remove some of their uniform of

0:41:490:41:53

jumping, and the saddle, and syrups.

At this isn't just about showcasing

0:41:530:41:57

their skills this week. The mounted

police use this training to help

0:41:570:42:01

them prepare for their main job and

whatever they might face on the

0:42:010:42:05

streets of London.

We are cops on

horses, police officers on horses.

0:42:050:42:08

These forces are all operational

horses. They patrol the streets of

0:42:080:42:12

London daily. This right we are

doing, what you see today, it is all

0:42:120:42:16

about training and developing the

officer and developing the horses.

0:42:160:42:19

So that we can take those skills out

onto the street.

In a public order

0:42:190:42:23

situation, like a riot, they say

that one mounted officer can do the

0:42:230:42:28

job of ten on foot. I saw how

crucial this training sessions are

0:42:280:42:32

for when things don't go to plan.

You have to be quite robust as a

0:42:320:42:37

writer. -- rider. You can have

situations, not that many years ago,

0:42:370:42:44

like Tottenham, you have ulcers and

buildings burning. A horse reacts

0:42:440:42:48

adversely to that. So this sort of

thing is great for their training.

0:42:480:42:52

It is about trust and confidence.

The first mounted police were around

0:42:520:42:57

150 years before the first pictures

in the 1920s, and over the following

0:42:570:43:02

decades, they became famous for

their musical rides.

This is a trial

0:43:020:43:06

of decision and grace, where the

policeman can show off their

0:43:060:43:10

equestrian skills.

Since 2014 there

has been an increase in the number

0:43:100:43:13

of mounted police again, following a

study by a university which showed

0:43:130:43:17

that the value of the horses was

icebreakers, not just in public

0:43:170:43:22

order situations but in community

policing as well. You are six times

0:43:220:43:27

more likely to interact and chat to

a police officer if they are the

0:43:270:43:31

horse than if they are just on foot.

Of course, it is all to do with the

0:43:310:43:36

horse. I think a personable horse

helps a bit.

You are much more

0:43:360:43:39

approachable on a horse. I found the

difference, initially, when I joined

0:43:390:43:42

the mounted branch, I couldn't

believe how me people stopped and

0:43:420:43:45

wanted to speak to you.

If you go to

an estate, you will get a crowd

0:43:450:43:50

around you, just pure P horse.

Before they know they are talking to

0:43:500:43:53

a police officer. -- purely to pat

the horse.

This is where it all

0:43:530:44:00

begins. Lots of the policeman who

join the mounted force of not

0:44:000:44:03

renominate horse before they start

training. -- not been on a horse. 16

0:44:030:44:09

weeks later, the trust between

police officer in horse is so great

0:44:090:44:13

that they will even run through

walls together. There is so much I

0:44:130:44:17

can do on a horse. But this gives me

a taste of what it is like. Jumping

0:44:170:44:23

the fence is, taking up their

jackets, and having the trust to

0:44:230:44:26

wall.

0:44:260:44:32

They wouldn't let me do it on a

horse but I didn't want to miss out.

0:44:320:44:37

That feeling, when you come up to

the wall, I can imagine how the

0:44:370:44:40

horse is feeling, but they go

through it.

You are an action man.

0:44:400:44:44

The decision not to let you on a

horse was clearly evidence base.

0:44:440:44:47

Yes, it was wise. Those sources are

very precious.

Thank you, Mike.

0:44:470:44:54

Here is Stav with a look

at this morning's weather.

0:44:540:44:58

Here is Stav with a look

at this morning's weather.

0:44:580:44:59

Good morning, both of you. Hope you

are both well. I am keeping warm,

0:44:590:45:05

because it is going to be a cold,

wintry weekend. Many places this

0:45:050:45:10

morning and today will see fine and

dry weather. A cold, frosty start.

0:45:100:45:15

Snow showers widespread and heavy

across western areas yesterday,

0:45:150:45:19

areas like the West Midlands and

Shropshire, a lot of lying snow so

0:45:190:45:24

watch out for ice in areas which had

snow yesterday and continued

0:45:240:45:29

overnight. And they are continuing

across parts of Scotland and

0:45:290:45:32

Northern Ireland, parts of northern

England, northern and western Wales.

0:45:320:45:37

Elsewhere, lots of dry weather and

sunshine across eastern areas. Those

0:45:370:45:41

winds a little bit lighter foremost,

snow showers continuing across the

0:45:410:45:45

west. But a fine, lovely day if you

like the cold. Wrap up if you are

0:45:450:45:50

heading out. Temperatures falling

away quickly overnight, you can see

0:45:500:45:53

the blue hue and we start to see the

weather system pushing into the

0:45:530:45:57

south-west. Rain initially and as it

bumps into that cold air it will

0:45:570:46:01

turn the heavy snow across the

Midlands, parts of Wales, in towards

0:46:010:46:05

the southern parts of northern as

well. This is potentially disrupted

0:46:050:46:10

snow. Ten centimetres in places,

maybe 15 or 20 in others. Be

0:46:100:46:16

prepared warnings are in force for

this. If you have to head out, make

0:46:160:46:21

it an emergency, stay home, because

it will be treacherous on the roads

0:46:210:46:26

Sunday morning as the snow

continues. Further northwards it

0:46:260:46:29

begins to fizzle out and turn into

rank as mild outflows in from the

0:46:290:46:33

south-west along with gales. Windy

afternoon for South Wales, southern

0:46:330:46:36

coastal parts of England.

Temperatures eight or nine degrees.

0:46:360:46:41

The Scotland and Northern Ireland,

apart from a few snow showers, a

0:46:410:46:45

lovely day with plenty of sunshine.

As we look into Monday, this area of

0:46:450:46:50

low pressure which will batter parts

of France will also impact southern

0:46:500:46:54

parts of Britain. So a fine day for

Scotland and Northern Ireland but

0:46:540:46:57

central and southern areas looking

at windy and cloudy day. Maybe some

0:46:570:47:01

snow in places and it will slowly

ease away during the latter part of

0:47:010:47:06

Monday. Another cold day, especially

in the south when you add on the

0:47:060:47:10

winds. As we had on towards Tuesday

it is looking quieter. This area of

0:47:100:47:15

low pressure moves away, sunshine

across southern areas, and the North

0:47:150:47:18

is set to stay cold, dry with some

sunshine through the week.

We always

0:47:180:47:24

liked at this

0:47:240:47:25

sunshine through the week.

We always

liked at this time of year when

0:47:250:47:26

viewers send us their pictures,

because you get them from Weather

0:47:260:47:30

Watchers as well.

And we will be

getting loads of the snow which

0:47:300:47:35

occurred overnight, and I will be

showing some. And if you have any

0:47:350:47:39

pictures at home, we would love to

see them. Get in touch the usual

0:47:390:47:43

way, Twitter, Facebook or e-mail.

0:47:430:47:44

Now, it's time for Click.

0:47:440:47:47

Today we are in Manchester,

at the Children's Global Media

0:48:060:48:09

Summit, a meeting of those who make

the content that our children

0:48:090:48:12

will be watching

in the coming years.

0:48:120:48:14

It's an event with some

very important speakers.

0:48:140:48:19

Parents, like Catherine and me,

are raising the first generation

0:48:190:48:21

of digitally immersed children.

0:48:210:48:23

And this gives us many reasons to be

optimistic about the impact

0:48:230:48:26

of technology on childhood.

0:48:260:48:31

And before the Duke of Cambridge

gave his speech to the audience,

0:48:310:48:34

I managed to grab a quick interview

with one of the most talked

0:48:340:48:38

about couples in the country.

0:48:380:48:42

So how are you finding

the conference so far?

0:48:420:48:47

Because, to be honest,

my kids get more about the staff

0:48:470:48:50

of the Furcherster Hotel

than at the powers that be,

0:48:500:48:53

behind the scenes.

0:48:530:48:58

But the discussions taking place

here will shape the type of content

0:48:580:49:03

that children will watch

in the future and how content

0:49:030:49:06

providers will meet the expectations

of the next generation of viewers.

0:49:060:49:10

Now, if you want to know

what children are up to,

0:49:100:49:13

why not ask them?

0:49:130:49:14

Kids Insight runs anonymous

questionnaires for 400 kids every

0:49:140:49:16

week to gather data about the latest

trends, hottest new characters,

0:49:160:49:19

and online habits.

0:49:190:49:21

Because, of course, it's not

all about what kids need -

0:49:210:49:24

there is a big industry that

wants to make money,

0:49:240:49:27

here, and target those young minds

with messages and merchandise.

0:49:270:49:29

We do find surprising the amount

of children that are viewing YouTube

0:49:290:49:34

without any parental

guidance or oversight.

0:49:340:49:35

We find it's probably about a third,

maybe less than a third of under

0:49:350:49:39

tens, their parents aren't

monitoring what they are watching

0:49:390:49:41

on YouTube at all.

0:49:410:49:49

And that's also a theme here: How

to protect children from harmful

0:49:490:49:52

content and stop them

being exploited by the increasingly

0:49:520:49:54

personal, interactive,

and immersive technologies

0:49:540:49:56

that they're using.

0:49:560:50:04

It's a massive concern for many

parents, but there are moves to try

0:50:040:50:07

and make children more savvy

about online safety,

0:50:070:50:09

as Lara Lewington found out

when she went back to school.

0:50:090:50:15

The opportunity for kids to access

information and learn has

0:50:150:50:18

never been bigger.

0:50:180:50:22

But with that comes a challenge.

0:50:220:50:25

The threats online are clear to see.

0:50:250:50:28

But an increasing number of children

are becoming aware of the dangers

0:50:280:50:32

and how to steer clear.

0:50:320:50:36

Never click on a link in an e-mail

unless you are absolutely sure

0:50:360:50:40

who it is from.

0:50:400:50:41

Basically, these are how many

attackers are coming in 'cause

0:50:410:50:44

the firewall is off.

0:50:440:50:49

This week an investigation

into paedophiles using live

0:50:490:50:51

streaming apps led to nearly 200

arrests, including teachers,

0:50:510:50:53

medics, and law enforcers.

0:50:530:50:54

A batch of leading brands suspended

advertising from YouTube

0:50:540:50:57

after suspect comments remained

beside videos featuring children.

0:50:570:51:05

This is not long after the site hit

the headlines when its algorithms

0:51:050:51:09

were found to be pulling

inappropriate content into its kids

0:51:090:51:12

app, which was then

viewed by children.

0:51:120:51:21

Of course, the company protests

it does all they can,

0:51:210:51:24

age restricting content in the main

app as well is aiming to protect

0:51:240:51:27

those using YouTube Kids altogether.

0:51:270:51:29

In light of the most recent issues,

it's also adding an extra 10,000

0:51:290:51:32

moderators to act alongside

the software, aiming

0:51:320:51:34

to keep kids safe.

0:51:340:51:37

But with such a wealth

of information out there,

0:51:370:51:40

who can actually be held accountable

for what is published?

0:51:400:51:43

First and foremost, the tech

companies themselves need

0:51:430:51:46

to be held accountable.

0:51:460:51:48

And I mean at the CEO level.

0:51:480:51:51

All of these platforms

have an enormous responsibility

0:51:510:51:53

to the kids and families

in their audience, 'cause they're

0:51:530:51:56

making billions of

dollars off of them.

0:51:560:51:58

Second, we also need to see some

kind of regulation that Ofcom

0:51:580:52:01

or others could provide that

would say this is appropriate or not

0:52:010:52:04

on these platforms.

0:52:040:52:09

Because if you think that tech

companies will self-regulate,

0:52:090:52:11

then you are kidding yourself.

0:52:110:52:16

But at the same time the benefits

of this sort of online access

0:52:160:52:19

can't be ignored.

0:52:190:52:22

Here at this central London school,

pupils are taking part in iDEA,

0:52:220:52:30

the digital and enterprise version

of The Duke of Edinburgh Award.

0:52:300:52:33

Hello, so what are

you all up to, here?

0:52:330:52:35

I am doing a safety badge.

0:52:350:52:37

The challenges are open

and free to all ages,

0:52:370:52:39

even adults, to provide

real life skills.

0:52:390:52:41

And they can be done

anywhere, any time.

0:52:410:52:43

The pupils are covering

a range of subjects,

0:52:430:52:46

including creating virtual

reality, the importance

0:52:460:52:48

of colour in photography...

0:52:480:52:50

It's, in essence,

the different types of colours.

0:52:500:52:52

If you want to get an eerie

retro feel, you'd reduce

0:52:520:52:55

the hue and saturation.

0:52:550:53:01

..As well as some of

the more serious issues

0:53:010:53:03

surrounding safety online.

0:53:030:53:06

What are the main things you feel

you have come away from this

0:53:060:53:09

so far having learned?

0:53:090:53:13

For all my devices I used

to put the same password.

0:53:130:53:16

So if the hackers knew one

of my passwords they would be able

0:53:160:53:20

to get anything.

0:53:200:53:21

So I learned that and I tried

to change my passwords

0:53:210:53:24

for everything, even

the school website.

0:53:240:53:25

So I am just going to

carry on with the badge.

0:53:250:53:28

It is not just about whether or not

you have done GCSE computer science,

0:53:280:53:32

it is about can you actually

manipulate or apply the knowledge?

0:53:320:53:35

So what we're trying

to do it in such a way

0:53:350:53:38

that they have the opportunity

of learning at themselves,

0:53:380:53:41

was at the centre making them aware

of the dangers and pitfalls

0:53:410:53:44

that we all see on a daily basis.

0:53:440:53:48

Over 100,000 of these bronze

awards have been achieved.

0:53:480:53:53

The silver to be

released next April.

0:53:530:53:55

And in a world where fake news has

dominated the headlines,

0:53:550:53:58

targeting us on what to think

or buy, there will be a category

0:53:580:54:03

called critical thinking,

focusing on just that.

0:54:030:54:09

It will teach the importance

of how to substantiate,

0:54:090:54:11

verify, and trust sources.

0:54:110:54:19

And at the Children's

Global Media Summit,

0:54:190:54:21

the BBC also announced a scheme

teaching how to avoid fake news.

0:54:210:54:24

But the real news right now is that

while there may still be a way to go

0:54:240:54:28

for things to be totally safe

online, kids are becoming more aware

0:54:280:54:32

and maybe at some point soon will be

the ones educating the grown-ups.

0:54:320:54:37

You see, it is...

0:54:370:54:38

How can you see, it is so small.

0:54:380:54:40

Yes, I have finished the badge.

Well done.

0:54:400:54:42

How are you feeling?

Woohoo!

0:54:420:54:44

Here is a nice little

AR app for kids.

0:54:440:54:46

You download and print

off your favourite character

0:54:460:54:48

from CBeebies, colour it

in however you like,

0:54:480:54:54

and then you pick up

your tablets, and look.

0:54:540:55:05

There is the duck.

0:55:050:55:07

You can draw other

characters, as well.

0:55:070:55:20

For example, here is my favourite,

who has the power and the speed,

0:55:200:55:23

and she zooms away.

0:55:230:55:24

Not that I'm a fan or anything.

0:55:240:55:26

And, from some pretty decent

visual effects there,

0:55:260:55:28

to some absolutely top-of-the-range

visual effects now, in the form

0:55:280:55:31

of one of the biggest films

of the year, Paddington 2.

0:55:310:55:34

Don't just take my word for it.

0:55:340:55:36

Ask Rotten Tomatoes,

where it scored 100%.

0:55:360:55:38

We sat down with the man

who is responsible for bringing

0:55:380:55:41

Paddington from Peru to the big

screen, for a world-exclusive look

0:55:410:55:44

at how he did it.

0:55:440:55:45

Parents, spoiler alert.

0:55:450:55:46

We're about to take

Paddington apart.

0:55:460:55:48

What's this?

0:55:480:55:57

This is London.

0:55:570:55:58

One of the key areas

that we began with is

0:55:580:56:00

previs, or pre-visualisation.

0:56:000:56:01

It's working in an extremely low-fi

fashion, to be able to practically

0:56:010:56:04

explore camera angles, moves,

using - working with animators

0:56:040:56:07

who have a familiarity

with Paddington himself.

0:56:070:56:13

Filming without Paddington,

it makes the process extremely

0:56:130:56:20

abstract, that's for sure.

0:56:200:56:21

And so we employ

a variety of techniques.

0:56:210:56:33

xuFor the best part,

there is a stand-in called Lauren,

0:56:330:56:36

who is about Paddington's height.

0:56:360:56:37

And she'll give us,

everyone on the set,

0:56:370:56:39

a brilliant insight

into Paddington's presence.

0:56:390:56:41

You don't want to make the work

in post very difficult or expensive,

0:56:410:56:44

by having to paint lots out,

so you try and minimise

0:56:440:56:47

what is in the place

of Paddington on the shot.

0:56:470:56:50

I think the things that are most

difficult are where Paddington

0:56:500:56:53

is interacting with objects

or people in the plate.

0:56:530:56:56

So you always need somebody to do

that, to create either the -

0:56:560:56:59

you know, touch the cloth that's

going to be touched.

0:56:590:57:02

There's statistic that,

if you put all the man hours

0:57:020:57:10

together, it would be 75 years

of someone's life to do

0:57:100:57:13

all the visual effects

on Paddington.

0:57:130:57:15

So that sort of gives you a bit

of perspective on how much

0:57:150:57:23

work is involved.

0:57:230:57:25

Fundamental was that he lives in -

that you would believe him.

0:57:250:57:28

He had to be hyperrealistic,

he had to live in a real space.

0:57:280:57:31

But you know, we're always very

careful to not reveal too much

0:57:310:57:37

whites of the eyes, to have eyes

that sort of look too cartoony,

0:57:370:57:40

to contain all the gestures.

0:57:400:57:42

Often an animator will first pick up

Paddington, and they'll go for very

0:57:420:57:45

obvious statements,

and Paddington is not about that.

0:57:450:57:47

You take it all away.

0:57:470:57:52

It's all in what's

absolutely necessary.

0:57:520:57:54

And it's a sort of small

shift of the brow here,

0:57:540:57:57

and a dart there, that

tells you he's thinking.

0:57:570:58:00

Simple little scenes like the one

where he travels through the prison,

0:58:000:58:03

it's transforming, and you're

seeing his effect on the place,

0:58:030:58:12

and everyone is making cakes,

that was a massively complicated

0:58:120:58:15

sequence, because of the very

artisan sort of way

0:58:150:58:17

in which we wanted to make

this prison transform,

0:58:170:58:19

and that sort of Michel Gondry-like

musical appearance to

0:58:190:58:22

all the things.

0:58:220:58:24

But no, there's a lot

of augmentation, always,

0:58:240:58:26

through the film.

0:58:260:58:30

I think probably almost every shot

you could point to something and go,

0:58:300:58:34

OK, well, that photograph has been

inserted in that frame,

0:58:340:58:36

and that sky has been changed there,

or that bridge didn't

0:58:360:58:39

exist, you know.

0:58:390:58:49

And there's a lot of that stuff,

all very understated.

0:58:490:58:52

HOWLING.

0:58:520:58:54

Ow.

0:58:540:58:59

Thank you, Mr Brown.

0:58:590:59:01

And that's it from the short cut

of Click from the Children's Global

0:59:010:59:04

Media Summit.

0:59:040:59:05

Did you enjoy it, DM?

0:59:050:59:07

Yes, me too.

0:59:070:59:07

And there's more on the full length

version, which you can see

0:59:070:59:11

on iPlayer, now.

0:59:110:59:11

Don't forget we live on Twitter

every day, every week.

0:59:110:59:14

Thanks for watching,

and we will see you soon.

0:59:140:59:17

There

1:00:031:00:03

Hello, this is Breakfast,

with Charlie Stayt and Naga

1:00:031:00:06

Munchetty.

1:00:061:00:06

Boris Johnson flies to Iran

to try to secure the release

1:00:061:00:09

of a jailed British mother.

1:00:091:00:10

The Foreign Secretary is due

to arrive there in the next few

1:00:101:00:14

hours and will raise

"grave concerns" about

1:00:141:00:16

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe,

who's spent the past 18

1:00:161:00:17

months behind bars.

1:00:171:00:20

Good morning.

1:00:371:00:37

It's Saturday 9th December.

1:00:371:00:39

Also this morning, a Brexit

breakthrough by the Prime Minister,

1:00:391:00:41

but a long journey lies ahead.

1:00:411:00:43

We'll get reaction to yesterday's

deal and look at what next

1:00:431:00:46

for Britain's departure

from the European Union.

1:00:461:00:48

President Trump declares a state

of emergency in California as strong

1:00:481:00:51

winds continue to fan

the flames of a series

1:00:511:00:54

of devastating wildfires.

1:00:541:00:58

More snow and ice on the way

for large parts of the UK

1:00:581:01:02

with freezing temperatures likely

to cause travel disruption.

1:01:021:01:04

Stav will have the latest for us.

1:01:041:01:09

Good morning. A wintry weekend for

all, with plenty of sunshine in the

1:01:091:01:15

forecast. Cold frosts, a few snow

showers, and the potential of some

1:01:151:01:20

significant snowfall some people

tomorrow. Join the later for all the

1:01:201:01:24

details. In sport, another off the

field incident for England on their

1:01:241:01:28

Ashes tour. It's just been revealed

why batsman Ben Duckett was been

1:01:281:01:32

dropped from England's Ashes tour

match today - it follows an incident

1:01:321:01:35

in a Perth bar.

1:01:351:01:36

And the extreme riding skills

of the mounted police.

1:01:361:01:39

I've been seeing how what they learn

for their dramatic display,

1:01:391:01:42

helps them cope with whatever

is thrown at them on patrol.

1:01:421:01:47

Good morning.

1:01:471:01:47

First, our main story.

1:01:471:01:49

The Foreign Secretary,

Boris Johnson, is due to arrive

1:01:491:01:51

in Iran shortly, where he will

express what he describes as "grave

1:01:511:01:54

concerns" over the imprisonment

of the British-Iranian woman,

1:01:541:01:57

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe.

1:01:571:01:57

The aid worker has been held

prisoner in the country since April

1:01:571:02:06

2016, accused of trying to overthrow

the Iranian government -

1:02:061:02:14

a charge she denies.

1:02:141:02:16

Boris Johnson's first visit to Iran

could hardly be more sensitive.

1:02:161:02:19

Last month he was accused

of damaging the case for the release

1:02:191:02:22

of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe

by remarks he

1:02:221:02:24

later apologised for.

1:02:241:02:25

On his way to Tehran to see

Iran's Foreign Minister,

1:02:251:02:27

he issued a statement, saying:

1:02:271:02:41

The Foreign Secretary says

he will also emphasise the UK's

1:02:411:02:44

continued support for

the nuclear deal with

1:02:441:02:46

Iran, despite its repudiation

by President Trump.

1:02:461:02:48

And he will also make clear UK's

concerns about some of Iran's

1:02:481:02:51

activities, notably

in Syria and Yemen.

1:02:511:02:56

He described the

relationship with Iran

1:02:561:02:58

as "improving, but not

straightforward."

1:02:581:02:59

The Foreign Secretary has

been careful to lower

1:02:591:03:01

any expectations of imminent release

for Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe,

1:03:011:03:04

warning that such cases

are very difficult.

1:03:041:03:14

That was our diplomatic

correspondent, James Robbins

1:03:141:03:18

reporting.

1:03:181:03:22

Let's speak to our security

correspondent, Frank Gardner,

1:03:221:03:24

who joins us from Bahrain.

1:03:241:03:26

Good morning, Frank. Talk about the

sensitivities surrounding Boris

1:03:261:03:34

Johnson's arrival in Iran?

To call

this mission delicate would be an

1:03:341:03:40

understatement. Boris Johnson is

going to be stepping in to aid

1:03:401:03:43

diplomatic minefield. -- a. I think

the best way to think about this is

1:03:431:03:51

that there are two Irans. There is

the public Iran, with a

1:03:511:03:56

democratically elect did the

government under President Rohani,

1:03:561:04:00

and the Foreign Minister that he

will meet, and the normal officials.

1:04:001:04:03

Then there is the deep state, the

Irani Revolutionary guard, the

1:04:031:04:10

hardcore judiciary, the hardliners,

the people who want to make a real

1:04:101:04:13

issue out of issues such as

Zaghari-Ratcliffe. They will make it

1:04:131:04:19

very difficult. They will

potentially have a shopping list, a

1:04:191:04:25

wish list. If there is any talk of

releasing her, and of course the

1:04:251:04:29

Foreign Office is trying to separate

these issues, but they will want

1:04:291:04:32

something in return. The Iranians

will have carefully planned for this

1:04:321:04:38

meeting. They will have looked at

all the possibilities, they will

1:04:381:04:42

have looked at the region. They know

in advance what they are going to

1:04:421:04:47

discuss. It is not just the use you

of the Zaghari-Ratcliffe, it is also

1:04:471:04:53

Yemen, Syria, Mr Johnson will have

his demands but they will have

1:04:531:04:56

theirs as well. They are not just

going to throw up their hands and

1:04:561:05:00

say, you know what, we have got it

wrong, maybe. They will want to play

1:05:001:05:04

hardball.

Indeed, so he will have

tough negotiating to do. You are in

1:05:041:05:08

Bahrain right now. There is an

international security conference

1:05:081:05:11

there. What is the significance of

that?

It is completely overshadowed

1:05:111:05:16

by the recent announcement by

President Trump of the recognition,

1:05:161:05:20

by the United States, of Jerusalem

as the capital of Israel and

1:05:201:05:25

President Trump's order to

eventually move the United States

1:05:251:05:28

embassy to Jerusalem. The big

headline here today, I can even show

1:05:281:05:32

it to you, is in the paper here. I

don't know if you can see that.

1:05:321:05:38

Trump declaration will incite

radicals. Everybody I have in

1:05:381:05:44

speaking to, on the record and off

the record, especially

1:05:441:05:47

counterterrorism experts and

officials from European agencies,

1:05:471:05:51

they are really worried that this

will fuel to reason. That this will

1:05:511:05:55

give ammunition to people who will

point to this declaration and say,

1:05:551:06:00

you see, that is what the US is

about. Don't be friends with them,

1:06:001:06:05

don't co-operate with them, come and

join us, join Isis, join al-Qaeda,

1:06:051:06:09

join this or that. It is a worrying

development, and that is certainly

1:06:091:06:13

how it is being seen at this

conference.

Frank, good to talk to

1:06:131:06:17

you. That was our security

correspondent Frank Gardner.

1:06:171:06:22

So, Frank was talking about the

issue of Jerusalem and Israel

1:06:221:06:26

overshadowing that conference.

Israel has launched further

1:06:261:06:30

airstrikes against Hamas positions

in the Gaza Strip in retaliation to

1:06:301:06:36

rocket strikes into Israel.

Palestinian and Israeli security

1:06:361:06:39

forces have clashed in the West Bank

since President Trump recognise

1:06:391:06:42

Jerusalem as Israel's capital on

Wednesday. Yesterday, US Ambassador

1:06:421:06:47

to the UN, Nikki Haley, defended the

US' decision and accused the UN of

1:06:471:06:52

IS against Israel. -- of bias.

1:06:521:07:01

Over many years, the United Nations

has outrageously been at the world's

1:07:011:07:04

foremost centres of

hostility towards Israel.

1:07:041:07:06

The UN has done much more damage

to the prospects for Middle East

1:07:061:07:09

peace than to advance them.

1:07:091:07:11

One of the Cabinet's leading

Brexiteers has suggested that voters

1:07:111:07:13

can use the next general election

to have their say on a final deal

1:07:131:07:17

with the European Union,

and to force a future government

1:07:171:07:20

to change course if

they don't like it.

1:07:201:07:22

The environment secretary,

Michael Gove, made the comments

1:07:221:07:24

in an article in The Daily

Telegraph, just a day

1:07:241:07:27

after Theresa May's agreement

in Brussels cleared the way

1:07:271:07:29

for trade talks.

1:07:291:07:36

Jonathan, I suppose there has been

time for reflection since yesterday

1:07:361:07:39

morning?

That's right. The dust has

settled on that agreement and

1:07:391:07:43

everybody has had a chance to flick

through the detail. This from

1:07:431:07:46

Michael Gove this morning in the

Telegraph is perhaps a sign of

1:07:461:07:49

things to come for the Prime

Minister. Michael Gove was of course

1:07:491:07:53

a key Leave campaigner and he has

given his view of what has been

1:07:531:07:57

agreed so far. He praises the Prime

Minister's tenacity and skill in

1:07:571:08:01

securing that -- in ensuring that

there would be no hardboard between

1:08:011:08:05

the Republican Northern Ireland,

getting a settlement to about £39

1:08:051:08:08

billion in securing the rights of EU

citizens in the UK and vice-versa.

1:08:081:08:13

As if to remind people, worried that

this might be pointing towards a

1:08:131:08:16

soft Brexit, that the UK really is

taking back control, as he puts it,

1:08:161:08:22

the key quote is this. After two

years of transition outside the EU

1:08:221:08:26

the British people will be in

control and have full freedom to

1:08:261:08:29

diverge from European law on the

single market and Customs union. The

1:08:291:08:32

talks will move onto trade. Theresa

May might be thinking now that after

1:08:321:08:38

all the hard work, that was the easy

bit.

Jonathan, thank you.

1:08:381:08:47

Wintry weather looks set to

continue, with more snow expected in

1:08:471:08:50

northern and eastern regions of the

weekend. Those freezing conditions

1:08:501:08:53

cause significant disruption to

commuters yesterday, and there are

1:08:531:08:56

properties in the West Midlands

still without power.

1:08:561:08:58

Some of these reindeer

are getting their first taste

1:08:581:09:08

of snow in Dudley.

1:09:081:09:09

And in the early hours,

more snowfalls have been reported

1:09:091:09:11

across the UK, although conditions

are expect to ease for today.

1:09:111:09:15

At Manchester Airport,

wings have had to be de-iced.

1:09:151:09:17

An image some are

about to leave behind.

1:09:171:09:19

Shropshire is somewhere

in this picture.

1:09:191:09:21

Undeterred.

1:09:211:09:27

On the Isle of Man,

the weekend began early,

1:09:271:09:30

as all schools were closed.

1:09:301:09:31

Elsewhere, there have been

problems on the roads.

1:09:311:09:33

The extremes of the weather

are expected to eventually be

1:09:331:09:36

confined to north-east Scotland,

but tomorrow, a spell of heavy snow

1:09:361:09:39

is likely over the Midlands

and parts of Wales and northern

1:09:391:09:42

England.

1:09:421:09:42

20cm is quite significant.

1:09:421:09:44

We will press ahead of that,

we will salt ahead of that,

1:09:441:09:57

but past 20cm we might have

to reduce the network and keep

1:09:571:10:00

key routes open.

1:10:001:10:01

That is much as you can do -

20cm is significant.

1:10:011:10:04

The Met Office is warning that some

in the countryside may be cut off -

1:10:041:10:08

if the skies were not

convincing enough.

1:10:081:10:12

You saw those pictures. Stav will

tell us exactly which regions will

1:10:121:10:17

be hit with the snow later on.

1:10:171:10:19

Wildfires in southern California

show little sign of letting up

1:10:191:10:22

as hot, dry winds continue

to fan the flames.

1:10:221:10:25

More than 200,000 people

have fled their homes,

1:10:251:10:27

with more preparing

to evacuate today.

1:10:271:10:28

President Trump has declared

a state of emergency,

1:10:281:10:31

as Sarah Corker reports.

1:10:311:10:39

In the mountains north

of Los Angeles, wildfires

1:10:391:10:42

are roaring through the forests

of Ventura County.

1:10:421:10:44

Dry winds are fanning the flames,

causing them to spread rapidly,

1:10:441:10:47

and cutting across highways.

1:10:471:10:48

RADIO: These guys are scrambling.

1:10:481:10:51

And the thick plumes

of smoke billow for miles.

1:10:511:10:53

Across southern California,

tens of thousands of people

1:10:531:10:55

have already fled.

1:10:551:10:56

And this is the destruction

they are escaping from.

1:10:561:11:02

I always equate these to my family

friends as disaster war zones

1:11:021:11:06

is what you see, with the homes that

are lost, and the tragedy that hits

1:11:061:11:10

all of these families that

live in these areas.

1:11:101:11:12

Some people now returning home

see what, if anything,

1:11:121:11:14

they can salvage from

the charred wreckage.

1:11:141:11:16

It's unbelievable, it's

devastating, it is horrific.

1:11:161:11:20

There is nothing left.

1:11:201:11:31

Not a darn thing.

1:11:311:11:33

The first fires broke out on Monday,

reaching the exclusive neighbourhood

1:11:331:11:38

of Bel Air, in Los Angeles,

and threatening the neighbourhoods

1:11:381:11:43

of Hollywood stars.

1:11:431:11:45

At night, it looks like a volcano

erupting, and from Santa Barbara

1:11:451:11:49

to LA and San Diego,

more than 8,000 firefighters

1:11:491:11:54

are trying to contain these fires,

the worst in living memory here.

1:11:541:11:58

Strong winds are forecast

through the weekend,

1:11:581:12:00

making for extremely

dangerous conditions.

1:12:001:12:16

An urgent review into

the availablity of free-to-use ATMs

1:12:161:12:19

is needed to make sure customers

do not struggle to access cash,

1:12:191:12:22

according to the consumer

watchdog, Which.

1:12:221:12:23

The UK's largest ATM network, Link,

wants to cut the fees charged

1:12:231:12:27

to card issuers by

the machines' owners.

1:12:271:12:29

But there are concerns an overhaul

of the system could result

1:12:291:12:32

in a significant reduction

of free-to-access machines.

1:12:321:12:35

It could potentially reduce

the number of ATMs in the UK

1:12:351:12:38

or increase the number

of pay for ATMs in the UK.

1:12:381:12:43

We want to ensure that consumers

have access to money in the way

1:12:431:12:46

they want to, particularly

in the face of closing bank

1:12:461:12:49

branches, where people find it more

and more difficult to get hold

1:12:491:12:52

of a bank and get their money

the way they want to.

1:12:521:13:00

Those are the main stories this

morning. It is 712 a.m.. Returning

1:13:001:13:04

to our lead story now.

1:13:041:13:06

The family of a British-Iranian

woman imprisoned in Iran since April

1:13:061:13:09

2016 say they hope a visit to Tehran

by the Foreign Secretary,

1:13:091:13:12

Boris Johnson, could

help to free her.

1:13:121:13:14

Mr Johnson has been under pressure

to intervene in the case

1:13:141:13:20

of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe

who is accused by Iran of spying -

1:13:201:13:23

a charge she denies.

1:13:231:13:24

He'll also use the trip

to discuss Britain's relations

1:13:241:13:26

with the country.

1:13:261:13:27

Iranian journalist Sharan

Tabari joins us now.

1:13:271:13:32

Thank you for speaking to us this

morning. Shall we start those with

1:13:321:13:37

Nathan and Garrett's case? --

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe's case. We

1:13:371:13:45

have spoken to her husband Richard,

who is ensuring that her story

1:13:451:13:49

remains prominent. What you think

will be achieved either Boris

1:13:491:13:52

Johnson with this visit.

Before

anything, I must say that I think

1:13:521:13:57

the Foreign Secretary has taken a

positive decision to go to Iran to

1:13:571:14:01

discuss Nazanin's future. I mean,

her fate. After the mistake that he

1:14:011:14:06

made in the Parliament, saying that

she went to Iran to train

1:14:061:14:11

journalists, which wasn't true. That

was a very good decision. Given the

1:14:111:14:15

fact that Iran was Mac relationship

with the UK is not very active,

1:14:151:14:24

although Britain has an ambassador

in Iran, the relationship is not

1:14:241:14:28

very good, it is good to see this as

a step forward, I think. He is not

1:14:281:14:34

only going to talk about Nazanin. He

is going to talk about the fate of

1:14:341:14:44

all Anglo-Iranians who are in prison

in Iran and hopefully they will be a

1:14:441:14:48

positive mood in that respect. I'm

not quite sure if the Foreign

1:14:481:14:52

Secretary can bring Nazanin back in

time for Christmas, it is very

1:14:521:14:55

short, but I am sure that some

progress will be made. Because it is

1:14:551:15:04

not only Nazanin's fate that is

going to be discussed, it is a

1:15:041:15:07

number of issues that are on the

agenda for the Foreign Secretary.

1:15:071:15:17

Earlier we were talking to our

security correspondent who was

1:15:171:15:21

highlighting the issues in Iran at

the moment and the trouble the

1:15:211:15:25

government is facing bear in terms

of hardliners and what the

1:15:251:15:28

government can be seen to do in

terms of compromise. What are they

1:15:281:15:34

balancing when they have a visit

from the Foreign Secretary from the

1:15:341:15:38

UK?

I am sure the Foreign Secretary

has been briefed properly by people

1:15:381:15:42

who know the political environment

in Iran, and I believe that it is

1:15:421:15:46

very important that he would talk

not only to Mr Rouhani's government,

1:15:461:15:55

but to other people, to the wider

political perspective of Iran, and

1:15:551:16:01

that is very important. If he only

limits his talks to one group of

1:16:011:16:05

people in Iran, then that can

backlash, and it is important the

1:16:051:16:10

Foreign Secretary shows goodwill

towards everybody, regardless of

1:16:101:16:13

what they believe. And as I said

earlier, there are a number of

1:16:131:16:21

issues to discuss that are of mutual

interest to both countries, such

1:16:211:16:29

as... The number-1 issue the fight

against Isis, or Daesh, as they call

1:16:291:16:37

it in Iran. As you know, a few days

ago the British secretary of defence

1:16:371:16:43

announced that Britain's strategy is

to fight Daesh. Daesh is not

1:16:431:16:50

finished, although it is defeated,

in Syria and Iraq. It is going to

1:16:501:16:54

reorganise itself wherever there is

a week government. Daesh is the

1:16:541:17:00

number-1 enemy of Iran and

cooperation between Britain and Iran

1:17:001:17:05

is very important in fighting Daesh.

Another issue is the nuclear deal,

1:17:051:17:09

which is under threat, with the

Trump administration in America, and

1:17:091:17:15

the support of Britain is vital for

Iran. I think that... I am sure the

1:17:151:17:23

Foreign Secretary will discuss all

these matters. Another issue is that

1:17:231:17:26

we know the Middle East is very

volatile at the moment, and Iran and

1:17:261:17:31

the Saudis are fighting a proxy war

in Yemen, and that is another issue

1:17:311:17:39

of discussion which is very

important, and I am sure it will be

1:17:391:17:45

addressed. So it is a whole package.

The case has prompted a very

1:17:451:17:49

important moment in the foreign

policy of Britain and Iran - UK

1:17:491:17:57

relationship, I think.

Thank you

very much for your insight about the

1:17:571:18:01

Foreign Secretary's visit to Iran.

1:18:011:18:05

Here is Stav with a look

at this morning's weather.

1:18:051:18:09

Here is Stav with a look

at this morning's weather.

1:18:091:18:10

And a bit nippy, maybe a bit snowy.

A bit smelly, yes, we could be

1:18:101:18:15

looking at some disrupted snow as we

had on towards the night and Sunday

1:18:151:18:19

morning. Lots of snowy showers

across the Midlands, Wales, Scotland

1:18:191:18:24

and Northern Ireland yesterday. So

many Weather Watcher pictures, and

1:18:241:18:27

this is just a select few. Many from

the West Midlands, you will notice.

1:18:271:18:33

Shropshire was disrupted yesterday

at times. Elsewhere it has snowed

1:18:331:18:37

and snow showers have continued this

morning. There is likely to be some

1:18:371:18:41

ice and treacherous driving

conditions, so watch out for that.

1:18:411:18:44

The majority of the country starts

off cold, dry and frosty. Remaining

1:18:441:18:49

sunny throughout the day. If you

like the cold and sunshine, a lovely

1:18:491:18:53

day for you. Snow showers towards

Cheshire, north Wales, and a cold

1:18:531:18:58

day if you are out on the breeze in

the north-east. It will be colder

1:18:581:19:02

than those temperatures will

suggest. This is where the weather

1:19:021:19:04

gets interesting. Overnight

temperatures fall away, but this

1:19:041:19:08

weather system begins to push on

from the south-west. Initially ran

1:19:081:19:12

across the south-west. It bumps into

the cold, heavy snow during early

1:19:121:19:16

hours and into Sunday morning.

Anywhere in this Zuev, the Midlands,

1:19:161:19:21

northern England and Wales could see

ten to 20 centimetres of snow. That

1:19:211:19:25

is disruptive amounts of snow,

especially in the UK. The Met Office

1:19:251:19:29

haven't Amber weather warning. If

you don't have any urgent journeys,

1:19:291:19:34

I would suggest staying home through

the morning as the snow is set to

1:19:341:19:38

continue. It will peter out and turn

back to rain as strong winds moving

1:19:381:19:42

from the south-west. We are looking

at gales for South Wales and

1:19:421:19:46

southern counties of England through

the day. Quite a cold feel to things

1:19:461:19:50

despite that colder air moving in.

Northern Ireland a cold and crisp

1:19:501:19:55

day with sunshine. That is how

Sunday is looking, and as we look in

1:19:551:20:00

the South on Monday, this storm

battering parts of France will give

1:20:001:20:04

a glancing blow to southern counties

of the UK. A wet and windy spell

1:20:041:20:08

through Monday across the south,

potentially with a little bit of

1:20:081:20:12

snow over higher ground. I think it

is mostly going to be rain and

1:20:121:20:16

strong winds, and gradually moving

away through the course of the day.

1:20:161:20:19

Northern areas dry and bright,

plenty of sunshine, and then that

1:20:191:20:24

storm clears away and it is looking

drier, finer and more settled for

1:20:241:20:28

most of us. Pretty severe weather on

the way. Keep tuned to the forecast

1:20:281:20:33

and BBC local radio for the latest

1:20:331:20:35

and BBC local radio for the latest

forecast.

And we will keep tuned to

1:20:351:20:37

you as well.

1:20:371:20:38

Should things like wolf-whistling,

unwanted sexual advances and sexist

1:20:381:20:41

remarks be classed as hate crimes?

1:20:411:20:42

It is something police in Nottingham

have been doing for some time.

1:20:421:20:46

Now, the head of hate crime at

the National Police Chiefs Council

1:20:461:20:49

has told MPs that other forces

are considering doing the same.

1:20:491:20:52

The former chief constable

of Nottinghamshire Police,

1:20:521:20:54

Sue Fish, is here to discuss this,

along with Helen Vose

1:20:541:20:57

from Nottingham Women's Centre.

1:20:571:21:04

Good morning to you both. So

Nottingham Police have been doing

1:21:041:21:09

this for some time. What has been

the reaction in terms of evidence or

1:21:091:21:13

incidents that have been reported,

and what has happened with those?

1:21:131:21:19

Well, the evidence, as we were told

by women in Nottingham and

1:21:191:21:24

Nottinghamshire was that this was

very much an everyday occurrence,

1:21:241:21:27

and that it really impinged on their

ability to fulfil their potential

1:21:271:21:30

and go about their life, just in a

very normal, natural way.

And when

1:21:301:21:36

they refer to this, unwanted sexual

advances, or comments? Throwaway

1:21:361:21:41

comments?

All of the above,

including indecent assault,

1:21:411:21:45

including physical attack, in terms

of harassment. Obscene, grotesque

1:21:451:21:52

invitations being offered to them,

completely unsolicited and unwanted.

1:21:521:22:00

Helen, how much of a problem is

this?

Women tell us that they

1:22:001:22:05

experience this every day, and I

think they do. Whether they reported

1:22:051:22:08

to the police is a different thing.

So we didn't expect incidents to go

1:22:081:22:13

through the roof and police to be

inundated, and in the first year 97

1:22:131:22:17

women spoke to police about it is.

But it is a widespread issue and we

1:22:171:22:21

hope I police recognising misogyny

as a hate crime that people will

1:22:211:22:25

know that sort of behaviour is not

acceptable in Nottingham and it will

1:22:251:22:28

go down.

And those 97 incidents you

talk about, give us the scope, they

1:22:281:22:33

go from where to wear a?

OK, so the

classic walking past a building site

1:22:331:22:38

and someone shout something about

your appearance to you as you walk

1:22:381:22:42

past, or a young girl that the

neighbour was wolf-whistling and

1:22:421:22:45

shouting up to her every time she

left the house, to the point that

1:22:451:22:49

she didn't want to go to school any

more.

OK, so these are some of the

1:22:491:22:54

cases that were reported to police,

and just take us through what

1:22:541:22:57

happened next. They are being

treated in a different way than they

1:22:571:23:01

ever had. They are being reported,

what happens next?

Our call handlers

1:23:011:23:07

take the call, and they will

allocate it to be investigated by an

1:23:071:23:13

officer. In the case that Helen

talked about just now with the young

1:23:131:23:17

girl who was continually being

bombarded by her neighbour...

This

1:23:171:23:22

is... Sorry, the nature of that was

what? Comments, or wolf whistling?

1:23:221:23:29

Wolf whistling and comments. So we

went around to talk to the goal and

1:23:291:23:34

her mother and understood what they

wanted to happen. And first and

1:23:341:23:39

foremost, it was around it stopping

and not happening again, and not

1:23:391:23:42

happening to any other girl or

woman. So went and saw the chap who

1:23:421:23:48

lived next door, talked to him about

what he had done, why he had done

1:23:481:23:54

it, worked with him about the error

of his ways, and to date there has

1:23:541:23:59

been no further incidents

whatsoever. So the purpose is around

1:23:591:24:04

really educating rather than

criminal Eisen, but on occasion

1:24:041:24:07

there will be times when committal

path is the only appropriate path.

1:24:071:24:11

So one of the things perhaps that

people are hearing is no one should

1:24:111:24:15

have to put up with behaviour like

that, of any sex, no one should have

1:24:151:24:19

to put up with any behaviour like

that. But when they hear the term

1:24:191:24:25

misogyny is a crime, what the scale,

how do you judge this on a scale? Is

1:24:251:24:29

it walking past a building site and

some builders wolf whistle, and make

1:24:291:24:34

someone feel uncomfortable, is that

a crime to be reported to the

1:24:341:24:40

police, and understaffed and

unfunded police force?

Outside of

1:24:401:24:45

the police context, to me it is how

it has made the woman feel.

I don't

1:24:451:24:53

think anyone denies that people will

feel uncomfortable but the point of

1:24:531:24:56

this is talking about how it

translates into a crime and how it

1:24:561:24:59

is dealt with.

But I don't think it

needs to be a crime. I think most of

1:24:591:25:04

the things that have been reported

incidents, and they don't become a

1:25:041:25:07

criminal thing, but they wanted to

stop. So to speak to somebody and

1:25:071:25:11

make it stop for other women is what

most women want.

OK, but in terms of

1:25:111:25:15

police time and police funding,

which is something we talk a lot

1:25:151:25:18

about on this programme, rightly so,

do police have time to deal with...

1:25:181:25:22

It is a chat, as you put it, and

rightly so it needs to be flagged

1:25:221:25:26

up, but is that the police to do it?

I think so, yes, without question.

1:25:261:25:30

It is about saying as a woman it

doesn't matter. That is normal, you

1:25:301:25:34

can be abused like that, but for

blokes, that is fine, in the main.

1:25:341:25:38

So I think it is very important. And

what we have seen, as Helen said, is

1:25:381:25:43

there has not been some tsunami of

demand. This is... Women now have

1:25:431:25:48

the choice. They know that it is not

acceptable. They know that, if they

1:25:481:25:53

report to Nottinghamshire police

they will be taken seriously,

1:25:531:25:57

treated with empathy, with

compassion. And, if we can, we will

1:25:571:26:04

identify who is responsible and deal

appropriately.

Can I ask you, you

1:26:041:26:08

know the scenario, and this is the

process he went through, you went to

1:26:081:26:11

visit the neighbour who was doing

this. If that person, let's say it

1:26:111:26:15

is a man in that situation, if you

go to the door and say this is what

1:26:151:26:20

has happened, and they say to you a

crime? What does your officers say

1:26:201:26:23

next?

Well, it depends.

Let's do the

scene here. I am the person and I

1:26:231:26:31

say have I committed a crime,

officer? If I haven't committed a

1:26:311:26:36

crime, please leave. What do you do

next?

Well, we will attempt to talk

1:26:361:26:43

to them.

But I haven't committed a

crime.

You still have the

1:26:431:26:47

opportunity to talk to someone

about...

Not if I am saying leave my

1:26:471:26:52

door. I'm trying to think how this

works in practice. If you get

1:26:521:26:56

someone who is thick-skinned,

possibly that is why they are doing

1:26:561:26:59

it in the first place, is because

they are not thinking about

1:26:591:27:02

someone's feelings, equally well

they might turn around to a police

1:27:021:27:05

officer and say I haven't committed

a crime. Go and talk to someone

1:27:051:27:10

else.

At again, it is about how

officers deal with that sort of

1:27:101:27:14

circumstance, and we are very used

to, police officers are very used to

1:27:141:27:18

having conversations in difficult

circumstances, and we see people day

1:27:181:27:24

in, day out, where crimes haven't

been committed. Crime is actually a

1:27:241:27:28

very small part of policing

activity, where we have

1:27:281:27:33

straightforward, consensual access

to people's homes and to themselves,

1:27:331:27:37

to have difficult conversations. And

that is simply what we do.

1:27:371:27:40

Nottingham has started this, and 97

reported in the last year, and as

1:27:401:27:45

you say, you are not going to change

the world overnight. I don't think

1:27:451:27:49

we are challenging that. It is

almost how does this work in

1:27:491:27:52

practice? Other police officers are

going to follow Nottingham.

A number

1:27:521:27:56

already have.

And what are they

saying in terms of resource in, and

1:27:561:28:02

in terms of how open officers are to

adding this to their workload?

I

1:28:021:28:06

think they have found exactly what

we have found in Nottinghamshire,

1:28:061:28:09

which is that it is doing the right

thing is what is really important

1:28:091:28:13

here. No one said, or I would like

and it probably to domestic violence

1:28:131:28:18

20 years ago, where actually, well,

we don't deal with that. Or rape, or

1:28:181:28:26

child sexual explication. For me

this is about police being on the

1:28:261:28:30

front foot, doing the right thing

rather than being shamed,

1:28:301:28:33

ultimately, because we have been

found to be inadequate in terms of

1:28:331:28:36

how we respond to this.

And do you

think that the logical progression

1:28:361:28:39

of this, and you made the analogy

with domestic crime, is that this

1:28:391:28:43

does become officially part of hate

crime legislation, if you like

1:28:431:28:46

Osemwegie Semi Eboigbe is that the

logical step?

That for me is... My

1:28:461:28:57

colleagues are looking at how we can

have this adopted by every police

1:28:571:29:01

force, rather than where there is a

committed officer who brought that

1:29:011:29:07

forward with the support of

partners, and again, we are looking

1:29:071:29:11

to work with the Home Office, the

Minister of justice, and the Crown

1:29:111:29:17

Prosecution Service about how this

can be enshrined further.

And that

1:29:171:29:20

is the message you need, isn't it?

Absolutely.

Thank you very much.

1:29:201:29:26

Stay with us.

1:29:261:29:27

Headlines coming up.

1:29:271:29:28

Hello, this is Breakfast

with Charlie Stayt and Naga

1:30:231:30:25

Munchetty.

1:30:251:30:26

Good morning.

1:30:261:30:26

Here's a summary of today's main

stories from BBC News.

1:30:261:30:29

The Foreign Secretary,

Boris Johnson, is due to arrive

1:30:291:30:31

in Iran in the next few hours,

where he's expected to press

1:30:311:30:35

for the release of the

British-Iranian woman,

1:30:351:30:37

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe.

1:30:371:30:48

The aid worker has been held

prisoner in the country

1:30:481:30:50

since April 2016.

1:30:501:30:51

She's accused of trying to overthrow

the Iranian government,

1:30:511:30:54

a charge she denies.

1:30:541:30:55

It's expected Mr Johnson will also

discuss Britain's wider

1:30:551:30:57

relations with Iran.

1:30:571:30:58

One of the Cabinet's leading

Brexiteers has suggested that voters

1:30:581:31:01

can use the next general election

to have their say on a final deal

1:31:011:31:05

with the European Union and to force

a future government to change course

1:31:051:31:08

if they don't like it.

1:31:081:31:12

The Environment Secretary,

Michael Gove, makes his comments

1:31:121:31:14

in The Daily Telegraph,

a day after Theresa May's agreement

1:31:141:31:17

in Brussels cleared

the way for trade talks.

1:31:171:31:19

The Cabinet is expected to meet

in the next fortnight to discuss

1:31:191:31:22

Britain's future

relationship with the EU.

1:31:221:31:24

Israel has launched further air

strikes against Hamas military

1:31:241:31:26

positions in the Gaza Strip,

in retaliation for Palestinian

1:31:261:31:28

rocket attacks on southern Israel.

1:31:281:31:30

Palestinians and Israeli security

forces have clashed in the West Bank

1:31:301:31:33

since President Trump recognised

Jerusalem as Israel's

1:31:331:31:35

capital on Wednesday.

1:31:351:31:36

Yesterday, the US Ambassador,

Nikki Haley, defended Donald Trump's

1:31:361:31:38

comments and accused the UN

of bias against Israel.

1:31:381:31:47

Over many years, the United Nations

has outrageously been at the world's

1:31:471:31:50

foremost centres of

hostility towards Israel.

1:31:501:31:52

The UN has done much more damage

to the prospects for Middle East

1:31:521:31:55

peace than to advance them.

1:31:551:32:01

The wintry weather looks set

to continue with Met Office warnings

1:32:011:32:04

in place for large parts of the UK.

1:32:041:32:06

More snow and freezing temperatures

are forecast for northern

1:32:061:32:08

and eastern regions into tomorrow.

1:32:081:32:10

Yesterday, commuters faced problems

on the roads and railways

1:32:101:32:12

and hundreds of properties remain

without power in the West Midlands.

1:32:121:32:23

Now for a sharp contrast.

1:32:231:32:25

Firefighters in southern California

are continuing to battle wildfires,

1:32:251:32:27

which have destroyed

hundreds of homes.

1:32:271:32:29

More than 200-thousand people have

already fled the area and many more

1:32:291:32:32

are preparing to evacuate.

1:32:321:32:33

President Trump has declared a state

of emergency as the fires continue

1:32:331:32:37

to spread.

1:32:371:32:45

An urgent review into

the availablity of free-to-use ATMs

1:32:451:32:47

is needed to make sure customers

do not struggle to access cash,

1:32:471:32:50

according to the consumer

watchdog, Which?

1:32:501:32:52

The UK's largest ATM network, Link,

wants to cut the fees charged

1:32:521:32:55

to card issuers by

the machines' owners.

1:32:551:32:57

But there are concerns an overhaul

of the system could result

1:32:571:33:00

in a significant reduction

of free-to-access machines.

1:33:001:33:02

Which could potentially reduce

the number of ATMs in the UK

1:33:021:33:05

or increase the number

of paid-for ATMs in the UK.

1:33:051:33:08

We want to ensure that consumers

have access to money in the way

1:33:081:33:11

they want to, particularly

in the face of closing bank

1:33:111:33:14

branches, where people find it more

and more difficult to get hold

1:33:141:33:17

of a bank and get their money

the way they want to.

1:33:171:33:22

The FIFA World Cup is still six

months away but players,

1:33:221:33:25

managers and fans will already

be dreaming about how

1:33:251:33:28

well their team might do.

1:33:281:33:32

Every minute of their very night.

I

can imagine. And of course we are

1:33:321:33:39

missing Paul the octopus?

Yes, he

sadly passed away, after becoming

1:33:391:33:44

famous for his predictions in 2010.

I thought you are guessing that he

1:33:441:33:49

died.

Well, octopus is only live for

two years, and he lived to two and

1:33:491:33:54

half years. IT had a song and an

online game named after him. These

1:33:541:33:58

are some animals in Russia trying to

predict next year's result.

Paul

1:33:581:34:01

wasn't Russian.

No, he was from

Weymouth, actually, then he moved to

1:34:011:34:07

Germany.

That cat, that is too smart

to be doing nonsense like that.

1:34:071:34:12

Well, so many animals have tried in

2014. The donkey failed to get the

1:34:121:34:17

result right. Some penguins. The

slot. They were all trying to copy

1:34:171:34:23

Paul.

I stopped listening when you

said Paul was from Weymouth.

Is that

1:34:231:34:29

true? Yes, he moved to Germany.

I

didn't know they had octopuses in

1:34:291:34:33

Weymouth.

Well, I don't know if he

was wild, or...

So much to think

1:34:331:34:39

about and talk about. We have some

breaking news coming from Australia

1:34:391:34:43

this morning. You must move on to

that.

The players went out in Perth

1:34:431:34:55

and there was an incident and now

and Duckett has been dropped from

1:34:551:34:59

today's game. -- Ben Duckett.

1:34:591:35:04

Let's get more and speak

to our sports correspondent,

1:35:041:35:06

Andy Swiss, who's in Perth.

1:35:061:35:08

Hi Andy, what more do we know?

1:35:081:35:10

Yes, Mike, just when you thought

England's is of an area problems

1:35:101:35:14

were over, this comes along. Ben

Duckett, as you say, is training in

1:35:141:35:19

Perth with the England Lions squad,

which is effectively England's

1:35:191:35:22

second-tier squad. Today he was due

to pay -- play for England in their

1:35:221:35:28

warmup game against Australia's

rickety 11. He is facing an ECB

1:35:281:35:34

disciplinarian choir it over an

incident in a bar in Perth on

1:35:341:35:37

Thursday. -- supply Mary panel. He

was out with other players on the

1:35:371:35:45

test squad. There is no details on

the incident itself, but the police

1:35:451:35:49

were not involved, nor were any

members of the public. But he is

1:35:491:35:53

facing a disciplinarian process and

has been suspended in the meantime.

1:35:531:35:58

Clearly this will raise more

questions over the behaviour of

1:35:581:36:02

England's players. Staggeringly,

this incident happened on the first

1:36:021:36:04

night England's players were allowed

to go out after the lifting of a

1:36:041:36:08

midnight curfew. That curfew had

originally been imposed following an

1:36:081:36:11

incident involving Jonny Bairstow,

the England wicket-keeper, in a bar

1:36:111:36:16

in Perth last month. Of course, as

well as that, there is the ongoing

1:36:161:36:22

situation with Ben Stokes. You still

waiting to find out if he will be

1:36:221:36:25

charged over an incident outside a

nightclub in Bristol in September.

1:36:251:36:29

Frankly, this latest disciplinary

distraction is the last thing

1:36:291:36:34

England need right now.

Exactly, as

they are trying to come back from

1:36:341:36:38

2-0 down in the series. Has a new

curfew being imposed on the squad?

1:36:381:36:42

We don't know. We are expecting to

find out later from Trevor Bayliss,

1:36:421:36:47

the England coach. He was pretty

furious after the Jonny Bairstow

1:36:471:36:50

incident. He said some of the

players needed to be much smarter.

1:36:501:36:54

It will be interesting to hear what

he has to say. The reaction just yet

1:36:541:36:58

about whether that midnight curfew

might even imposed following this

1:36:581:37:01

latest incident. -- might be

reimpose. -- reimposed.

1:37:011:37:10

On the pitch, opener

Keaton Jennings, has made a case

1:37:101:37:13

for picking him next

week, by scoring 80,

1:37:131:37:15

against a Cricket Australia eleven.

1:37:151:37:16

Apart from that it's been a bit

worrying for the tourists in this 2

1:37:161:37:20

day match, batting first

and when rain stopped play

1:37:201:37:22

they were 215-7.

1:37:221:37:36

Now, we hear that one seventh will

be watching Manchester tomorrow. One

1:37:361:37:42

seventh of the world's population.

It is an amazing stat, but I'm not

1:37:421:37:47

convinced by it.

Before you said

they would be watching, now you have

1:37:471:37:51

said they will be keeping an eye on

it?

Well, it is the same thing.

I

1:37:511:37:56

did some research. The world

population is 7.5 early on. I said,

1:37:561:38:02

maybe there are lots of fans in

China. That is 1.4 billion.

I don't

1:38:021:38:08

know if we are talking about the

viewing population.

The viewing

1:38:081:38:12

population but I am passing the buck

on this one.

It is the number of

1:38:121:38:17

people who are interested.

Look, it

is going to be popular, to say the

1:38:171:38:21

least.

1:38:211:38:23

So all eyes on Manchester

and Merseyside tomorrow,

1:38:231:38:25

but this lunchtime, it's East

against West London,

1:38:251:38:28

as West Ham host Chelsea.

1:38:281:38:29

The Hammers are in the bottom three

and looking for a first win under

1:38:291:38:33

new manager David Moyes.

1:38:331:38:34

But despite their position the Scot

thinks he is starting

1:38:341:38:37

to make his mark on his new squad.

1:38:371:38:39

I don't want to get too carried away

but the players have been very good.

1:38:391:38:43

They have tried to take

on board everything.

1:38:431:38:45

They are doing their work.

1:38:451:38:46

As I said from the start,

they will have to do the work

1:38:461:38:50

if they want to play.

1:38:501:38:51

Hopefully they are all doing that.

1:38:511:38:55

The late drama in the championship

last night. Aidan Flin Flon say

1:38:551:39:00

goal. A last-minute winner for

Bristol city against Sheffield

1:39:001:39:03

United.

1:39:031:39:06

They could have lost their manager

to Rangers, but Aberdeen repaid

1:39:061:39:09

Derek McInnes for staying in charge

with a 1-0 win at Dundee.

1:39:091:39:12

Scott McKenna's goal just

after the break was enough to seal

1:39:121:39:15

the three points, which moves

Aberdeen into second place

1:39:151:39:17

in the Scottish Premiership -

three points above Rangers,

1:39:171:39:20

before they play tomorrow.

1:39:201:39:23

The Premier League could be taking

on, Strictly Come Dancing

1:39:231:39:26

and the X Factor in a Saturday

evening battle for viewers.

1:39:261:39:30

Eight games will be played

in a new 7:45 slot, under a new TV

1:39:301:39:33

package, which will start

in the 2019-20 season.

1:39:331:39:35

Broadcasters will be able to bid

to show 200 games per season -

1:39:351:39:39

that's more than half

of all matches.

1:39:391:39:50

What would you rather watch, the

dancing, or the likes of Chelsea in

1:39:501:39:54

the Premier League? Just throwing

out how to there.

1:39:541:39:56

Next to a big blow for

Wales's Six Nations campaign.

1:39:561:39:59

Their captain Sam Warburton has been

ruled out of the tournament.

1:39:591:40:02

The 29-year-old has had keen surgery

on an existing injury and will be

1:40:021:40:06

out for up to six months.

1:40:061:40:08

--Knee surgery.

1:40:081:40:10

Glasgow are out of the European

Champions Cup after a home

1:40:101:40:13

defeat to Montpelier.

1:40:131:40:14

The French side opened the scoring

with the try of the match

1:40:141:40:17

from Kelian Galletier.

1:40:171:40:18

Glasgow did lead 17-5 at one stage,

but ended up losing 29-22.

1:40:181:40:22

Its a bright outlook

for Ronnie O'Sullivan whatever

1:40:221:40:25

happens in the snooker today.

1:40:251:40:26

The Rocket will play

Stephen Maguire in the semi-finals,

1:40:261:40:28

after beating Martin Gould 6-3,

while Shaun Murphy will play

1:40:281:40:31

Ryan Day in the other semi.

1:40:311:40:33

And whatever happens

in O'Sullivan's match,

1:40:331:40:34

he feels he can't lose.

1:40:341:40:36

It was win-win because I thought,

if they get beaten, at least I get

1:40:361:40:40

home to dinner.

1:40:401:40:41

And if I win I have

another day here.

1:40:411:40:43

I have to have a win-win.

1:40:431:40:45

At this stage of the game...

1:40:451:40:49

There are quite a few places around

here that will do dinner for you.

1:40:491:40:53

Yes, but I would like

to see my missus.

1:40:531:40:55

I decided a while ago,

I like to do my own thing.

1:40:551:40:59

Whatever happens in the game

is great, I pick and choose

1:40:591:41:02

what I want to do.

1:41:021:41:03

I think my happiness comes in doing

other things away from snooker.

1:41:031:41:15

In 8 weeks Lizzie Yarnold

will try to become the first British

1:41:151:41:18

athlete to retain a winter olympic

title, but the season

1:41:181:41:21

is not going to plan

for the skeleton bob slider.

1:41:211:41:24

Yarnold won the gold

in Sochi 4 years ago,

1:41:241:41:26

but yesterday falling snow

hampered her, and she finished 13th

1:41:261:41:29

place at the latest World Cup event

at Wintersberg, in Germany.

1:41:291:41:32

"What can you do in a snow

storm," she tweeted.

1:41:321:41:36

Jumping fences and riding

through fire mean their skills

1:41:361:41:38

are arguably even more extreme

than the likes of AP McCoy and Nick

1:41:381:41:42

Skelton.

1:41:421:41:42

Now the Met's mounted police

are gearing up to show

1:41:421:41:45

off their stuff at the Horse

of the Year Show, which takes place

1:41:451:41:48

this week in London.

1:41:481:41:50

I joined them in training to find

out how these skills help them

1:41:501:41:53

prepare for being on

the beat in London.

1:41:531:41:58

They are the heavyweights

of the equestrian world,

1:41:581:42:00

with some of the bravest riders.

1:42:001:42:02

Despite the size and the weight

of these beasts, it is all

1:42:021:42:05

about the most delicate

position and accuracy,

1:42:051:42:07

as they jump through fire and even

manage to remove some

1:42:071:42:10

of their uniform -

and the saddle, and stirrups.

1:42:101:42:14

But this isn't just about showcasing

their skills this week.

1:42:141:42:18

The mounted police use this training

to help them prepare for their main

1:42:181:42:22

job, and whatever they might face

on the streets of London.

1:42:221:42:28

We are cops on horses,

police officers on horses.

1:42:281:42:36

These horses are all

operational horses.

1:42:361:42:38

They patrol the streets

of London daily.

1:42:381:42:40

This ride we are doing,

what you see today, it's

1:42:401:42:42

all about training and developing

the officers, and developing

1:42:421:42:45

the horses, so that we can take

those skills out onto the street.

1:42:451:42:48

In a public order situation,

like a riot, they say that one

1:42:481:42:51

mounted officer can do

the job of ten on foot.

1:42:511:42:54

I saw how crucial these training

sessions are for when things don't

1:42:541:42:58

go to plan.

1:42:581:43:06

You have to be quite

robust as a rider.

1:43:061:43:08

You can have situations,

not that many years ago,

1:43:081:43:11

like Tottenham, you have vehicles

and buildings burning.

1:43:111:43:13

A horse reacts adversely to that.

1:43:131:43:14

So this sort of thing

is great for their training.

1:43:141:43:17

It's about trust and confidence.

1:43:171:43:23

The first mounted police were around

150 years before the first pictures

1:43:231:43:26

in the 1920s, and over

the following decades,

1:43:261:43:29

they became famous

for their musical rides.

1:43:291:43:30

NEWSREEL: This is a trial

of precision and grace,

1:43:301:43:33

where the policemen can show

off their equestrian skills.

1:43:331:43:35

Since 2014 there has been

an increase in the number of mounted

1:43:351:43:39

police again, following a study

by a university which showed

1:43:391:43:41

that the value of the horses

was icebreakers - not just in public

1:43:411:43:45

order situations but in

community policing as well.

1:43:451:43:47

You are six times more likely

to interact and chat to a police

1:43:471:43:51

officer if they are on a horse

than if they are just on foot.

1:43:511:43:54

Of course, it's all

to do with the horse.

1:43:541:43:57

I think a personable

horse helps a bit.

1:43:571:43:59

You're much more

approachable on a horse.

1:43:591:44:01

I found the difference, initially,

when I joined the mounted branch,

1:44:011:44:04

I couldn't believe how many people

stopped and wanted to speak to you.

1:44:041:44:07

If you go to an estate,

you will get a crowd around you,

1:44:071:44:11

just purely to pat the horse.

1:44:111:44:13

Before they know it,

they're talking to a police officer.

1:44:131:44:24

This is where it all begins.

1:44:241:44:26

Lots of the policemen who join

the mounted force have not been

1:44:261:44:29

on a horse before

they start training.

1:44:291:44:31

16 weeks later, the trust

between police officer and horse

1:44:311:44:33

is so great that they will even run

through walls together.

1:44:331:44:36

There's only so much

I can do on a horse.

1:44:361:44:39

But this gives me a taste

of what it is like.

1:44:391:44:42

Jumping the fences,

taking off their jackets,

1:44:421:44:44

and having the trust to power

through the final wall.

1:44:441:44:56

Luckily, that idiot will not be out

Olympia performing this week. The

1:44:561:45:00

horses will be, would be met police,

and other highlights this week.

1:45:001:45:05

Here is Stav with a look

at this morning's weather.

1:45:061:45:09

Definitely chilly,

1:45:091:45:10

Definitely chilly, and there is snow

for many of us.

Good morning to you

1:45:101:45:15

both. It will remain wintry and cold

for the foreseeable future, with

1:45:151:45:18

some significant snow into tomorrow.

Plenty of snow lying across parts of

1:45:181:45:25

Scotland, Northern Ireland,

north-west England, Wales, the West

1:45:251:45:28

Midlands. Parts of Shropshire and

parts of south Wales saw some real

1:45:281:45:33

winter wonderland scenes. Where

there is lying snow there will be

1:45:331:45:37

ice. Watch out for that untreated

roads and pavements. Apart from a

1:45:371:45:42

few showers across northern

Scotland, Northern Ireland,

1:45:421:45:44

north-west England and north Wales

through the day, it will be a lovely

1:45:441:45:49

day. Gorgeous spells of sunshine

around, widespread sunshine, and

1:45:491:45:53

winds lighter from the far

north-east, where it will be quite

1:45:531:45:56

easy. Heavy snows here. Temperatures

about one to six degrees in the

1:45:561:46:01

south-west. A nice day if you wrap

up and head out. Tonight things will

1:46:011:46:06

get interesting. Temperatures

falling away, you can see the blue

1:46:061:46:09

colour is in this area of low

pressure moving in. Of heavy rain

1:46:091:46:13

bumping into the cold air and

turning into snow. A bit of

1:46:131:46:17

uncertainty as to its north and

south extent but in the heavy snow

1:46:171:46:22

area, where we could see ten to 20

centimetres, there is likely to be

1:46:221:46:27

significant disruption. That is

parts of Wales, West Midlands and

1:46:271:46:30

northern England. No surprise the

Met Office have an amber be prepared

1:46:301:46:36

warning for this. Likely to be some

disruption through Sunday morning.

1:46:361:46:39

If you are heading out, make sure it

is an emergency. Enjoy watching the

1:46:391:46:43

snow if you enjoy that. The snow

should peter out and turn back into

1:46:431:46:49

rain, slightly milder air moving

back into the system. Fairly windy

1:46:491:46:52

in southern parts of England. Gale

force or severe gale force winds

1:46:521:46:57

through the afternoon. Scotland and

Northern Ireland will be wondering

1:46:571:46:59

what all the fuss is about. Cold,

dry and sunny here. This storm is

1:46:591:47:04

expected to batter parts of France

as we had on towards Monday, but its

1:47:041:47:08

northern extent is likely to affect

southern parts of the country again.

1:47:081:47:12

Northern areas seeing the best of

the sunshine. A cold day, wet and

1:47:121:47:16

windy in the south, and some of the

rain turning into snow over the high

1:47:161:47:21

ground. The rain will clear away

through the course of the afternoon.

1:47:211:47:24

Behind that system, skies

brightening up as we head into

1:47:241:47:28

Tuesday. The risk of ice first

thing, but at least dry with lots of

1:47:281:47:32

sunshine across the south. Some

pretty severe weather on the way.

1:47:321:47:37

Thank you very much.

1:47:371:47:38

We will have the

headlines in a moment.

1:47:381:47:40

Now it's time for Newswatch,

with Samira Ahmed.

1:47:401:47:42

Now it's time for Newswatch,

with Samira Ahmed.

1:47:421:47:44

Hello, and welcome to Newswatch

with me, Samira Ahmed.

1:47:441:47:47

Coming up: The News at Ten can't

tell the difference between three

1:47:471:47:50

Bollywood actors in reporting

the death of film star Shashi

1:47:501:47:53

Kapoor.

1:47:531:47:58

And how the BBC is sending

journalists into schools

1:47:581:48:00

to tackle fake news.

1:48:001:48:05

First, how the death of the renowned

Indian actor Shashi Kapoor

1:48:051:48:08

was covered on the News

at Ten this week.

1:48:081:48:14

The BBC chose to play only very

brief footage as Huw Edwards

1:48:141:48:18

announced the star had died aged 79.

1:48:181:48:22

But neither of the actors

shown work Shashi Kapoor.

1:48:221:48:24

The veteran Indian actor

Shashi Kapoor has died in hospital

1:48:241:48:27

in Mumbai at the age of 79.

1:48:271:48:29

From one of India's greatest acting

families, he appeared in more

1:48:291:48:32

than 150 films, including

a dozen in English.

1:48:321:48:34

He starred in some of the biggest

Hollywood blockbusters

1:48:341:48:37

of the 1970s and 1980s.

1:48:371:48:47

Many viewers noticed and complained

on social media and the programme's

1:48:471:48:50

editor Paul Royal apologised

on Twitter shortly after.

1:48:501:48:57

And on the following night's News

at Ten, Huw Edwards apologised over

1:49:071:49:10

photographs of Shashi Kapoor.

1:49:101:49:17

They confirmed that mistakes

were due to human error.

1:49:171:49:19

Last night we showed the wrong

images, which we apologised for.

1:49:191:49:22

The actor appeared in more than 150

films, including a number

1:49:221:49:25

of English-language productions.

1:49:251:49:26

Shashi Kapoor won numerous acting

prizes during his long career,

1:49:261:49:29

as well as one of India's

highest civilian award.

1:49:291:49:39

Well, the BBC said sorry.

1:49:391:49:40

So was that good enough?

1:49:401:49:41

Many viewers got in touch

to question how such a mistake

1:49:411:49:44

could be made.

1:49:441:49:47

Nadia Hussain e-mail to say:

1:49:471:49:58

And Art Patel was not

impressed either:

1:50:001:50:03

A lot of people who watch

Bollywood movies and it's part

1:50:031:50:06

of that cultural history, identity,

would find this very upsetting.

1:50:061:50:09

It's not very nice to show another

actor who is also a very big part

1:50:091:50:13

of many people's identity

and culture to be in the opening

1:50:131:50:16

clip, as opposed to the person

who passed away, Shashi Kapoor.

1:50:161:50:19

Shashi Kapoor is completely

different, for the BBC not to do

1:50:191:50:22

this distinction right from the off

is very inconsiderate.

1:50:221:50:32

The newspaper review

on the Andrew Marr Show got rather

1:50:321:50:35

heated last Sunday, leading

some viewers to question

1:50:351:50:37

whether Andrew Marr had

control over the panel.

1:50:371:50:42

Ukip's former leader Nigel Farage,

a former Labour adviser

1:50:421:50:44

and Kate Andrews from the Institute

of Economic Affairs

1:50:441:50:47

were on the sofa.

1:50:471:50:51

It now seems the phrase

"take back control",

1:50:511:50:53

take back control and give it

to the Irish, you know,

1:50:531:50:56

it's such a distraction...

1:50:561:50:57

Well, that's why we're

going to talk about...

1:50:571:50:59

OK, guys...

1:50:591:51:00

Brexit is failing because

of the government...

1:51:001:51:04

Guys, guys...

1:51:041:51:09

Graham Lee's e-mail to say:

1:51:121:51:15

Phili Taylor commented:

1:51:211:51:22

And Monte Hellman called in:

1:51:281:51:30

Andrew Marr was unable

to control them.

1:51:301:51:32

As a licence payer, somebody

who just wants information

1:51:321:51:34

and to learn something from these

people, this contributes nothing.

1:51:341:51:46

Now, the term fake news may have

first been popularised

1:51:461:51:48

by Donald Trump during his

presidential election campaign,

1:51:481:51:51

but it's become a major concern,

not just because politicians throw

1:51:511:51:54

it at journalism they don't like,

but also because of the evidence

1:51:541:51:58

of fake stories created and spread,

especially through social media

1:51:581:52:00

platforms, notably in the run-up

to the US election.

1:52:001:52:07

But how easy is it

just got fake news?

1:52:071:52:09

There has been rapid change in how

young people consume news,

1:52:091:52:12

and the BBC has started a scheme

to help secondary school

1:52:121:52:15

pupils identify it.

1:52:151:52:21

The BBC's media editor spoke

at six formers in Kent.

1:52:211:52:24

How do you consume news everyday?

1:52:241:52:26

I'll be honest, it's

mainly through SnapChat.

1:52:261:52:28

Put your hand up if

you're on Snapchat.

1:52:281:52:31

To gauge the news literacy,

we showed the pupils an image

1:52:311:52:34

that was shown thousands

of times on social media.

1:52:341:52:36

It depicts a Muslim woman pictured

after the Westminster Bridge terror

1:52:361:52:39

attack.

1:52:391:52:41

Yeah, she seems like

she's not caring.

1:52:411:52:46

But this was fake news.

1:52:461:52:47

The image was attached to a tweet

from an account linked to Russia,

1:52:471:52:51

and our pupils did detect

anti-Muslim prejudice.

1:52:511:52:54

I think if she was of a different

race this tweet would never have

1:52:541:52:58

been put out and it's really wrong

that people feel the need

1:52:581:53:01

to do that.

1:53:011:53:04

From March, up to 1,000 schools

will be offered mentoring in class,

1:53:041:53:07

online or at events by BBC

journalists, including

1:53:071:53:09

from the likes of Huw Edwards

and the BBC's economic editor

1:53:091:53:12

Kamal Ahmed, and he joins us now.

1:53:121:53:23

Welcome.

1:53:231:53:23

Have you ever been

caught out by fake news?

1:53:231:53:26

I don't think so, no.

1:53:261:53:27

Obviously we do our best

to make sure we're not.

1:53:271:53:30

I was once almost caught out.

1:53:301:53:31

A Mark Carney Twitter feed started,

who's the Governor of the Bank

1:53:311:53:35

of England, and I must admit,

for a moment I thought,

1:53:351:53:38

my goodness, the Governor

of the Bank of England

1:53:381:53:40

is going to start tweeting.

1:53:401:53:42

That was the only time

I thought to myself,

1:53:421:53:44

check yourself, Kamal!

1:53:441:53:45

Is that really believable?

1:53:451:53:46

And I think when you're

thinking about fake news,

1:53:461:53:48

that is probably

the first thing to do.

1:53:481:53:50

Is what you're seeing

really believable?

1:53:501:53:52

And as soon as you've checked,

is Mark Carney going to be

1:53:521:53:55

on Twitter anywhere else,

everyone was saying,

1:53:551:53:57

well, of course, the Governor

of the Bank of England

1:53:571:54:00

couldn't do that.

1:54:001:54:01

So I think it's thinking

about the source of the story,

1:54:011:54:04

does it look believable,

is it being reported anywhere else?

1:54:041:54:07

And I suppose the responsibility

is on us as the BBC to help people

1:54:071:54:10

navigate this new world

of news that they live in.

1:54:101:54:13

Well, let's talk about that,

because people might say,

1:54:131:54:16

why does the BBC feel it needs to do

anything about this?

1:54:161:54:19

I think we do have a role,

if the BBC's role, its mission,

1:54:191:54:22

is to educate, inform and entertain,

educate is part of what we do,

1:54:221:54:26

and I think it's an important part

of the conversation.

1:54:261:54:29

And also I think, Samira, for us,

we need to listen as well.

1:54:291:54:32

We need to listen to young people.

1:54:321:54:34

Amol Rajan's piece there

was very interesting,

1:54:341:54:36

what people felt about some

of the news information

1:54:361:54:38

they were being given.

1:54:381:54:39

So it's a learning

exercise for us as well.

1:54:391:54:42

Let's look at a couple of the things

you mentioned there.

1:54:421:54:45

We saw Amol going into schools,

as you said, what actually

1:54:451:54:48

are people like him and you doing

when you do go into them?

1:54:481:54:51

Well, I'm going back

to my old school in the New Year in

1:54:511:54:55

London.

1:54:551:54:56

I think what I would love to do,

and I think this is what the BBC

1:54:561:55:01

is planning, is just go through some

of those stories and talk

1:55:011:55:04

to the young people,

the sixth formers and others,

1:55:041:55:06

about what they think about the news

coverage and how it works.

1:55:061:55:09

And do they think about,

is it fake news?

1:55:091:55:12

Is a deliberately misleading

piece of information?

1:55:121:55:14

It's very clear that young

audiences, particularly

1:55:141:55:16

in their teens and early 20s,

they don't consume traditional

1:55:161:55:18

curated TV news bulletins

like we all used to.

1:55:181:55:21

Do BBC editors understand

their world enough?

1:55:211:55:23

The BBC certainly does.

1:55:231:55:24

I would not claim myself

that we should say, we understand

1:55:241:55:27

the world that young people live in.

1:55:271:55:29

But certainly we have all sorts

of content on Facebook

1:55:291:55:31

and on Twitter, on Instagram,

we have a piece of our organisation

1:55:311:55:35

called News Labs, which looks at how

news is shared and different

1:55:351:55:38

ways on mobile.

1:55:381:55:43

Newsbeat and Newsround,

they are on lots of these

1:55:431:55:46

social media outlets.

1:55:461:55:50

In terms of who you send out

to spread that message,

1:55:501:55:53

if you don't mind me saying so,

apart from Tina Hayley,

1:55:531:55:56

who has worked on Radio One,

one might think you're not actually

1:55:561:55:59

of that generation.

1:55:591:56:02

You know, who would be the right

people to be sending,

1:56:021:56:05

and is it people like you?

1:56:051:56:07

Well, I think it's young people,

but I think it's about showing

1:56:071:56:10

that the BBC takes it seriously

at whatever level in this

1:56:101:56:13

organisation you happen to be

and whatever age you are.

1:56:131:56:16

I'm certainly no celebrity,

and I wouldn't claim that I am,

1:56:161:56:19

but I think I work at the front line

for the BBC in economics,

1:56:191:56:23

which lots of young people talk

about and are very interested in -

1:56:231:56:26

intergenerational unfairness,

inequality, those type of issues

1:56:261:56:28

are issues I cover.

1:56:281:56:29

And I think if I can help people

navigate that and also listen

1:56:291:56:33

to that, I think that is

of advantage, I hope,

1:56:331:56:35

to them, and it

certainly will be to us.

1:56:351:56:38

Kamal Ahmed, thank you.

1:56:381:56:39

The tone of Brexit coverage

is a regular issue with

1:56:391:56:42

Newswatch viewers.

1:56:421:56:44

This week, breakfast presenter

Charlie Stayt's interview

1:56:441:56:46

with Transport Secretary Chris

Grayling about Brexit negotiations

1:56:461:56:48

came in for criticism from several

viewers who thought it was hostile.

1:56:481:56:59

If...I'm not sure what your role

was today in being sent out

1:56:591:57:02

and doing media interviews,

I know you are doing the rounds

1:57:021:57:05

today, this is how this works,

but was your job to reassure people

1:57:051:57:08

that things are going well

and everything's in hand,

1:57:081:57:11

because I'm not sure

that you have done that.

1:57:111:57:13

OK.

1:57:131:57:14

My job is to say to people, look,

we are in the middle

1:57:141:57:18

of a negotiation, it's

a complex negotiation,

1:57:181:57:20

negotiations have their ups

and downs, we are confident

1:57:201:57:22

that we will reach a sensible basis

to move to the next stage of talks.

1:57:221:57:26

Surely Charlie Stayt does not

expect the Government

1:57:261:57:28

to reveal their strategy on live TV

for the world to see,

1:57:281:57:32

and yet he continuously pressed

Mr Grayling over and over again,

1:57:321:57:35

becoming increasingly rude

and offering his own sarcastic

1:57:351:57:37

responses when he didn't get

the answers he was looking for.

1:57:371:57:40

I'm surprised that Mr Grayling

did not storm of the set.

1:57:401:57:43

I would like to think that BBC

reporters can show some respect

1:57:431:57:46

to their guests.

1:57:461:57:56

Unfortunately it is becoming clear

that this is not the case.

1:57:561:58:11

Christine Keeler, who was embroiled

in the 1963 Profumo scandal

1:58:111:58:14

when she was a young woman,

died this week aged 75.

1:58:141:58:19

At the height of the Cold War,

the then teenager was the centre

1:58:191:58:23

of the news media frenzy

over her brief relationship

1:58:231:58:25

with a Government minister

John Profumo, which shut

1:58:251:58:28

Harold Macmillan's government.

1:58:281:58:30

Jack Wheeler tweeted his discomfort

with the language used

1:58:301:58:33

to describe her on news obituaries:

1:58:331:58:35

And that's all from us.

1:58:511:58:52

Thank you for all your

comments this week.

1:58:521:58:54

opinions on BBC News,

Goodbye.

1:59:161:59:18

Hello.

2:00:212:00:22

This is Breakfast, with

Charlie Stayt and Naga Munchetty.

2:00:222:00:25

Boris Johnson flies to Iran

to try to secure the release

2:00:252:00:28

of a jailed British mother.

2:00:282:00:29

The Foreign Secretary is due

to arrive there in the next few

2:00:292:00:32

hours and will raise "grave

concerns" about Nazanin

2:00:322:00:34

Zaghari-Ratcliffe, who's spent

the past 18 months behind bars.

2:00:342:00:43

Good morning.

2:00:492:00:50

It's Saturday 9th December.

2:00:502:00:51

Also this morning:

2:00:512:00:53

A Brexit breakthrough

by the Prime Minister,

2:00:532:00:55

but a long journey lies ahead.

2:00:552:00:57

We'll get reaction to yesterday's

deal and look at what next

2:00:572:00:59

for Britain's departure

from the European Union.

2:00:592:01:05

President Trump declares a state

of emergency in California as strong

2:01:052:01:08

winds continue to fan the flames

of a series of

2:01:082:01:11

devastating wildfires.

2:01:112:01:17

In sport - another off the field

incident for England

2:01:172:01:20

on their Ashes tour.

2:01:202:01:21

It's just been revealed why batsman

Ben Duckett was been dropped

2:01:212:01:23

from England's Ashes

tour match today -

2:01:232:01:25

it follows an incident

in a Perth bar.

2:01:252:01:35

A few snow showers and the potential

of some significant snow. Join me

2:01:492:01:55

later for the details.

2:01:552:01:57

Good morning.

2:01:572:01:58

First, our main story.

2:01:582:01:59

The Foreign Secretary,

Boris Johnson, is due

2:01:592:02:01

to arrive in Iran shortly,

where he will express

2:02:012:02:03

what he describes as "grave

concerns" over the imprisonment

2:02:032:02:05

of the British-Iranian woman,

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe.

2:02:052:02:07

The aid-worker has been held

prisoner in the country since April

2:02:072:02:09

2016, accused of trying to overthrow

the Iranian government -

2:02:092:02:12

a charge she denies.

2:02:122:02:13

Mr Johnson is also expected

to discuss Britain's wider

2:02:132:02:15

relations with Iran.

2:02:152:02:16

Here's our diplomatic

correspondent James Robbins.

2:02:162:02:26

Boris Johnson's first visit to Iran

could hardly be more sensitive.

2:02:282:02:30

Last month he was accused

of damaging the case for the release

2:02:302:02:33

of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe

by remarks he later apologised for.

2:02:332:02:35

On his way to Tehran to see

Iran's Foreign Minister,

2:02:352:02:38

he issued a statement,

saying: The Foreign Secretary says

2:02:382:02:48

The Foreign Secretary says

2:02:492:02:50

he will also emphasise the UK's

continued support for the nuclear

2:02:502:02:53

deal with Iran, despite its

repudiation by President Trump.

2:02:532:03:01

But he will also make clear UK's

concerns about some of Iran's

2:03:012:03:04

activities, notably

in Syria and Yemen.

2:03:042:03:11

Mr Johnson described

the relationship with

2:03:112:03:12

Iran as "improving,

2:03:122:03:13

but not straightforward."

2:03:132:03:14

The Foreign Secretary has been

careful to lower any expectations

2:03:142:03:17

of imminent release

for Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe,

2:03:172:03:18

warning that such cases

are very difficult.

2:03:182:03:24

That was our diplomatic

correspondent James

2:03:242:03:25

Robbins reporting.

2:03:252:03:31

One of the Cabinet's leading

Brexiteers has suggested that voters

2:03:312:03:34

can use the next general election

to have their say on a final deal

2:03:342:03:37

with the European Union and to force

a future government to change course

2:03:372:03:40

if they don't like it.

2:03:402:03:41

The Environment Secretary,

Michael Gove, made the comments in

2:03:412:03:44

an article in The Daily Telegraph,

just a day after Theresa May's

2:03:442:03:47

agreement in Brussels cleared

the way for trade talks.

2:03:472:03:49

We can speak now to our political

correspondent Jonathan Blake.

2:03:492:03:51

Jonathan, what more

has Mr Gove said?

2:03:512:03:58

What has Michael Gove said here on

white is he talking about the next

2:03:582:04:04

election?

It's perhaps a sign of

things to come for the Prime

2:04:042:04:09

Minister Theresa May as everyone

picks through the details of the 15

2:04:092:04:16

pages of negotiations. He is putting

his spin on it. It's significant

2:04:162:04:21

that he is reminding people that

nothing is agreed until everything

2:04:212:04:24

is agreed. So come the final deal,

everything could unravel. Also, to

2:04:242:04:30

remind everyone that the UK are

taking back control. After that two

2:04:302:04:37

year transition, the UK will be in

full control. In other words, if you

2:04:372:04:45

don't like it, you can change it.

This is perhaps a reminder that

2:04:452:04:52

Theresa May's senior team are yet to

agree on what they want the endgame

2:04:522:05:01

to look like. There is less than a

year now to agree how the transition

2:05:012:05:06

period will work. After all the hard

work to get to this point the Prime

2:05:062:05:10

Minister might well be thinking,

that was the easy bit.

Thank you.

2:05:102:05:14

We'll talk later.

2:05:142:05:17

Officials in Gaza say four people

have died and 160 are injured

2:05:172:05:20

following air strikes on Hamas

military positions by Israel.

2:05:202:05:27

The strikes were in retaliation

for Palestinian rocket

2:05:272:05:28

attacks on southern Israel.

2:05:282:05:29

Palestinians and Israeli security

forces have clashed in the West Bank

2:05:292:05:32

since President Trump recognised

Jerusalem as Israel's

2:05:322:05:33

capital on Wednesday.

2:05:332:05:35

Yesterday, the US Ambassador,

Nikki Haley defended Donald Trump's

2:05:352:05:37

comments and accused the UN

of bias against Israel.

2:05:372:05:47

The wintry weather looks to

continue. More snow is expected over

2:05:472:05:55

the weekend. Freezing conditions

caused significant disruption to

2:05:552:06:00

commuters yesterday and many in the

West Midlands are still without

2:06:002:06:03

power.

2:06:032:06:04

Some of these reindeer

are getting their first taste

2:06:042:06:06

of snow in Dudley.

2:06:062:06:07

And in the early hours,

more snowfalls have been reported

2:06:072:06:10

across the UK, although conditions

are expect to ease for today.

2:06:102:06:13

At Manchester Airport,

wings have had to be de-iced.

2:06:132:06:16

An image some are

about to leave behind.

2:06:162:06:19

Shropshire is somewhere

in this picture.

2:06:192:06:26

Undeterred.

2:06:262:06:28

On the Isle of Man,

the weekend began early,

2:06:282:06:30

as all schools were closed.

2:06:302:06:31

Elsewhere, there have been

problems on the roads.

2:06:312:06:37

The extremes of the weather

are expected to eventually be

2:06:372:06:40

confined to north-east Scotland,

but tomorrow, a spell of heavy snow

2:06:402:06:42

is likely over the Midlands

and parts of Wales and northern

2:06:422:06:45

England.

2:06:452:06:55

20 centimetres is quite significant.

2:06:552:06:56

We will press ahead of that,

we will salt ahead of that,

2:06:562:06:59

but past 20cm we might have

to reduce the network and keep

2:06:592:07:02

key routes open.

2:07:022:07:03

That is much as you can do -

20cm is significant.

2:07:032:07:06

The Met Office is warning that some

in the countryside may be cut off -

2:07:062:07:10

if the skies were not

convincing enough.

2:07:102:07:19

Firefighters in southern California

are continuing to battle

2:07:232:07:26

firefighters. More than 200,000

people are preparing to flee the

2:07:262:07:32

area. President Trump has declared a

state of emergency as the fires

2:07:322:07:41

continue to spread. More from the

ashes and another player has been

2:07:412:07:54

dropped after a reported incident in

a bar in Perth.

We had the Johnny

2:07:542:08:00

Bairstow incident in a bar in Perth.

A curfew was placed on players,

2:08:002:08:05

meaning they needed to be back at

midnight. That was lifted on

2:08:052:08:09

Thursday. The players went out and

deja vu, there was an incident in a

2:08:092:08:15

bar in Perth again, this time

involving Ben buckets, who is 23 and

2:08:152:08:21

plays have a back-up Lions squad. He

had been named in this team today to

2:08:212:08:28

lay a Cricket Australia 11 where

players can stake their claim for

2:08:282:08:35

placing the squad next week.

However, he has been dropped and now

2:08:352:08:40

we know why. No police were

involved, no members of the public

2:08:402:08:46

were involved, but the England

team's security was present. You can

2:08:462:08:52

deduce from that what you will. We

don't know the details, but we do

2:08:522:08:59

know that Trevor Bayliss will be

furious. After the Johnny Bairstow

2:08:592:09:04

incident he said that players needed

to be smart when they were out on

2:09:042:09:08

tour.

Thank you. More details later

on.

2:09:082:09:16

Let's return to Brexit

and Theresa May's meeting with EU

2:09:162:09:19

officials in Brussels yesterday

dominates the front

2:09:192:09:20

pages this morning.

2:09:202:09:21

The Mail says "Rejoice,

We're on our way!"

2:09:212:09:25

With a picture of what it describes

as a "historic handshake"

2:09:252:09:27

between the Prime Minister

and Jean Claude Junker.

2:09:272:09:31

The Telegraph sets out the key

points from yesterday's agreement.

2:09:312:09:37

While the Mirror calls

the Prime Minister "Mrs Softee"

2:09:372:09:39

claiming she "abandoned her red

lines to break the deadlock."

2:09:392:09:43

The Irish Times also leads

with the story saying the Ireland

2:09:432:09:46

has a commitment of no hard border

with the North even if the UK

2:09:462:09:51

leaves without a deal.

2:09:512:09:54

We're joined now by Tim Martin,

who's the Chairman of JD Wetherspoon

2:09:542:09:56

and was a prominent supporter

of the Leave campaign.

2:09:562:10:06

Good morning. If you had a headline

for your sentiments, this time

2:10:082:10:11

yesterday morning as you heard the

news, what would it have been? It

2:10:112:10:17

would have been, my goodness me,

it's going to take a few weeks or

2:10:172:10:23

months to interpret this ambiguous

agreement which probably means they

2:10:232:10:26

can just get on with other

negotiations. I suppose it's good

2:10:262:10:29

that you can get on with other

negotiations and it's good what they

2:10:292:10:32

have done regarding immigration and

the border in Ireland. For myself,

2:10:322:10:38

for the UK we are better off without

a deal at the moment as things stand

2:10:382:10:43

because then in March 2019, we can

see is to pay £200 million a week to

2:10:432:10:51

the EU and also, we can eliminate

and the green-macro EU tariffs on

2:10:512:11:00

food that comes from outside of the

EU. The effect of that, contrary to

2:11:002:11:04

what a lot of people have said, is

that food prices will fall. Lower

2:11:042:11:10

food prices and £200 million a week

extra. The BBC One a story this week

2:11:102:11:16

or last week in which it said there

were 7000 people below the poverty

2:11:162:11:20

level. That £200 million would give

them £300 each.

You could sit here

2:11:202:11:28

and campaign if you want, but I

suppose the thing is that we are in

2:11:282:11:33

the negotiations. We are getting

there. You say you don't want to

2:11:332:11:37

deal, but negotiations are

happening. As a business owner and

2:11:372:11:43

an employer of how many people?

37,000 people.

What are your

2:11:432:11:51

employees said they are most

concerned about?

Our employees are

2:11:512:11:57

like the country and the country is

watching all this. They have a

2:11:572:12:01

different approach. I think a lot of

people feel it is being dragged out,

2:12:012:12:07

it is fudged. There was a two-year

transitional deal which means we

2:12:072:12:15

would not leave until five years in

effect after the referendum. I think

2:12:152:12:19

it has been turned into a model. --

a model. I think that that is what

2:12:192:12:29

the general population feels. You

asked me about my view earlier and I

2:12:292:12:33

have a particular view about it.

The

catering industry relies a lock on

2:12:332:12:39

temporary workers, but also EU

workers.

Does that apply to your

2:12:392:12:48

pups?

It does, to an extent. Those

people that work for you, do they

2:12:482:12:55

feel any more secure than they did

before this?

The government could

2:12:552:13:18

not say that everyone had to leave.

It's good to clarify it, but there

2:13:182:13:28

was no situation where any single MP

said, you would have to go back.

How

2:13:282:13:39

were you positioning yourself?

What's the long-term view? The

2:13:392:13:54

long-term view for our business is

that it will be better off if we

2:13:542:14:06

stop paying money to the EU and it

can be used in the UK and we can

2:14:062:14:18

eliminate the importance on food and

drink. We sell a lot of Australian

2:14:182:14:25

wine. When we leave, the import tax

will be eliminated.

On the issue of

2:14:252:14:34

the trade deal, a moment ago you

said, I think you said you were in

2:14:342:14:43

the favour of no deal, which was the

best option. Because of the

2:14:432:14:52

difficulties regarding the border in

Ireland, details emerged yesterday

2:14:522:14:57

is that if there is no border, there

will be regulatory equivalence. That

2:14:572:15:06

would apply across the whole of the

UK which would mean in effect they

2:15:062:15:11

are still working within European

guidelines. That is officially the

2:15:112:15:17

backstop position. So you're all

opposition means in fact we will

2:15:172:15:21

stay effectively within the single

market.

What you are saying is that

2:15:212:15:28

no deal means that there is a deal

between Ireland and the UK...

It's

2:15:282:15:34

not what I am saying, it is what

happened yesterday.

I don't think it

2:15:342:15:40

is a sensible interpretation of

events. One of the government

2:15:402:15:44

ministers has written this morning

that there was no deal until

2:15:442:15:48

everything is agreed. You can't say

there is is overriding factor for

2:15:482:15:52

Ireland. Also with Ireland, the

primary legislation, the Good Friday

2:15:522:16:04

Agreement, it's not good to go on TV

and say, this is what is happening

2:16:042:16:07

with the border and it's been agreed

with the Prime Minister of Ireland

2:16:072:16:12

and Theresa May. The Good Friday

Agreement is primary and the

2:16:122:16:17

interpretation of that requires very

careful analysis.

Someone running a

2:16:172:16:25

business in the UK, in this

environment is it stable enough for

2:16:252:16:28

you to make plans for expansion?

Yes, it definitely is stable enough

2:16:282:16:33

I think things have been overplayed,

particularly by the CBI and the

2:16:332:16:40

directors of big businesses. They've

tried to put the final is on the

2:16:402:16:44

public and put the frighteners on

MPs. Most of your audience and the

2:16:442:16:57

MPs, they've been told that the

prices will go up. That is not true.

2:16:572:17:02

There was a lot of disinformation.

We want a decent deal and we want to

2:17:022:17:07

get on with the Europeans. Nothing

against them individually, but I am

2:17:072:17:12

worried about the disinformation

which is inclined to make us do a

2:17:122:17:16

bad deal.

Thank you for coming to

see this morning. Disinformation

2:17:162:17:19

works both ways people will

immediately contest some of the

2:17:192:17:24

things you are claiming as well, but

that is the point. It's called

2:17:242:17:29

democracy. Thank you.

2:17:292:17:35

Here's Stav with a look

at this morning's weather.

2:17:352:17:51

Shropshire saw a lot of disruptive

snow yesterday. A couple of inches

2:17:592:18:03

at least. There will be trouble

where you had snow yesterday, watch

2:18:032:18:09

out for the ISAs well. Most of the

snow across Scotland and Ireland.

2:18:092:18:21

Most of the country though it will

be dry and find with lots of crisp

2:18:212:18:26

winter sunshine. Tonight,

temperatures fall away as you can

2:18:262:18:36

see rapidly. This band of rain

pushes into the south-west and is it

2:18:362:18:45

bumps into the cold air across the

Midlands and Wales, it will turn to

2:18:452:18:49

heavy snow. By Sunday morning you

could be looking at up to 20

2:18:492:18:57

centimetres -- up to ten

centimetres. The Met office has an

2:18:572:19:04

amber warning. The advice is not to

make any journeys unless you have

2:19:042:19:15

too. Along with that our gale force

winds. Southern counties will be

2:19:152:19:21

particularly affected. The area of

low pressure moves away and into

2:19:212:19:31

Monday we look to the south. There

will be a storm over most of France.

2:19:312:19:45

There will be strong winds across

the South with good spells of

2:19:452:19:52

sunshine. It will feel cold because

of the wind. Tuesday, low pressure

2:19:522:19:57

moves away and then it is quieter

for many central and southern areas

2:19:572:20:00

with a frosty start and plenty of

sunshine. It will be called for the

2:20:002:20:08

rest of the week. Thank you.

2:20:082:20:16

It's been billed as the "Live Aid

of Homelessness" -

2:20:162:20:19

around 9000 people are expected

to sleep out in Edinburgh tonight

2:20:192:20:21

to highlight the issue

of living on the streets.

2:20:212:20:23

Liam Gallagher, Deacon Blue

and Sir Bob Geldof are all due

2:20:232:20:26

to take part in the event.

2:20:262:20:28

Let's find out more

from the organiser of "Sleep

2:20:282:20:30

in the Park", Josh Littlejohn,

who also co-founded the homeless

2:20:302:20:32

charity, Social Bite.

2:20:322:20:34

Thank you for talking to us this

morning. Good morning. What is

2:20:342:20:40

behind this ideal of Sleep In The

Park?

We wanted to bring a mass

2:20:402:20:44

movement of people here to come and

sleep out and experience sleeping

2:20:442:20:51

out in a cold winter 's night for

one night. We have about 8000 people

2:20:512:20:56

coming to the centre of Edinburgh.

There will be the concept and some

2:20:562:21:02

powerful content about the cause.

And about 11 o'clock, people will

2:21:022:21:07

bed down.

2:21:072:21:12

Hopefully we will raise a lot of

money, in the region of three to £4

2:21:202:21:25

million.

You have managed to get

some really high profile people, or

2:21:252:21:30

people with high profiles to help

you out. It has been dubbed the

2:21:302:21:39

Scottish Live Aid. How have you

managed to get them to help?

We have

2:21:392:21:44

been on the news and some Hollywood

people have come over. George

2:21:442:21:51

Clooney came over and have a

sandwich in one of our shots.

2:21:512:21:55

Leonardo DiCaprio also came over. We

just started approaching people.

2:21:552:22:06

I've met Bob Geldof five years ago.

We approached him. We brought it up

2:22:062:22:10

one by one and try to put together

something to build the excitement of

2:22:102:22:16

the event. Because of the prospect

of sleeping out in the cold,

2:22:162:22:24

particularly with the forecast, we

are not cutting through to

2:22:242:22:31

particular music bands, people are

coming for the cause, but it adds to

2:22:312:22:37

the excitement having them here.

We

are seeing pictures now of homeless

2:22:372:22:42

people on the streets, sleeping,

asking for money. Social problems

2:22:422:22:47

that lead to homelessness, what is

the attitude you feel towards

2:22:472:22:57

homelessness?

If you speak to

homeless people, we work with people

2:22:572:23:01

every day and we have done for over

five years, one of the worst that

2:23:012:23:05

often comes up is that they feel

invisible and I think that is the

2:23:052:23:09

case. We kind of look through them

and not at them. One of the things

2:23:092:23:14

we learned when we started meeting

homeless people and employing them

2:23:142:23:19

and distributing free food, we

started asking stories of how they

2:23:192:23:23

became homeless. What was eerie is

that they almost all had the same

2:23:232:23:28

story. They were dealt horrific

cards when they came into the world,

2:23:282:23:35

terrible childhoods. They were then

failed by the system and became

2:23:352:23:39

homeless in the late teenage years.

It's not a product of individual

2:23:392:23:46

decision-making, it's a product of

structures in the systems we create.

2:23:462:23:50

You have more compassion for people

when they end up in that situation.

2:23:502:23:54

It's a cruel well for them. They are

shunned a marginalised by society.

2:23:542:24:01

One of the big intentions behind

this event is to make it impossible

2:24:012:24:07

to ignore them.

Thank you for

talking to us and good luck with

2:24:072:24:11

Sleep In The Park the night.

2:24:112:24:13

You're watching Breakfast.

2:24:132:24:14

Time now for a look

at the newspapers.

2:24:142:24:19

The broadcaster Ian Collins is here

to tell us what's caught his eye.

2:24:192:24:29

I was the cold for you? It is very

cold. Out on the canal the people

2:24:322:24:39

are in canoes.

What are you going to

start us with?

Cash points? This is

2:24:392:24:48

great news. If you have stored

behind someone -- if you have stood

2:24:482:25:02

behind someone who does not know how

to use a cash machine, you'll know

2:25:022:25:07

what I mean. Four of the biggest

banks are ditching 37 cash machines

2:25:072:25:15

every week. From a safety

perspective, if you come across a

2:25:152:25:21

cash machine that is down an alley

late at night, we are all looking

2:25:212:25:25

over our shoulder.

If you are of a

certain age, you will remember a

2:25:252:25:30

time before cash machines.

I don't

really. Do you remember a time

2:25:302:25:39

before money?

You used to have to

get money out of the bank and the

2:25:392:25:44

cash machine changed all that. Maybe

it is odd to think about it if you

2:25:442:25:49

are used to it, but it changed

everything.

They were invented by

2:25:492:25:55

Brits, as Scottish inventor. People

full that if anyone was going to

2:25:552:26:01

invent a way to get money out of the

wall, it would be an American.

1967,

2:26:012:26:08

the first cash machine was in

Enfield.

Do you remember who the

2:26:082:26:13

first person was to use it? Was it

the Queen? No, it was Reg Varney,

2:26:132:26:22

soss the 1970s sitcom star. I only

know it because I wrote about it. He

2:26:222:26:30

was the first man to use the cash

machine.

It would have been

2:26:302:26:38

interesting if they put a cash

machine on a bus.

They did not think

2:26:382:26:47

it through.

Now, commuters really

don't understand how we are seeing

2:26:472:26:55

higher rail fares compared to the

rest of Europe.

I have done so many

2:26:552:27:01

interviews with various characters

in this role story, from transport

2:27:012:27:08

ministers to computer

representatives -- commuter

2:27:082:27:11

representatives, and no one can

pinpoint why it is so expensive to

2:27:112:27:17

travel in this country. If you want

to talk about social mobility, it is

2:27:172:27:24

key to oversee getting the country

moving in the right direction.

2:27:242:27:28

Trying to get a train from one part

of the country to another can cost

2:27:282:27:32

you the equivalent of a weak puzzler

wages.

And they are going up again

2:27:322:27:36

the New Year.

They are going up

again. -- a week's wages. Latvian

2:27:362:27:57

trains, 5p to every 50p spent here.

If you look at the Prophet Bates,

2:27:572:28:06

it's only a tiny bit.

They have also

look further, and this is what is

2:28:062:28:14

complicated, at the single fare.

Often, if you buy a single fare,

2:28:142:28:18

they have looked at the Oxford

single fair-haired, £24 90. The

2:28:182:28:24

return is only 10p more. If you look

at it on return tickets, we would

2:28:242:28:31

not be as expensive.

That's true,

but it's still incredibly expensive.

2:28:312:28:37

You choose.

What's your last story?

Texting. Using the'.

Does anyone

2:28:372:28:47

really use them properly? I do. I

get annoyed with my phone if it

2:28:472:28:54

gives me the option of an apostrophe

in the wrong place.

But are you a

2:28:542:29:02

member of the apostrophe protection

Society? I might join. They exist.

2:29:022:29:11

Along with the guy who used to go

around correcting signs with

2:29:112:29:17

apostrophes in the wrong place,

undergraduates were being tested on

2:29:172:29:24

apostrophes and they got it wrong,

particularly the S'. The possessive

2:29:242:29:36

plural. That's right. 72% of

undergraduates did not know what to

2:29:362:29:41

do with it. Hopeless.

Loving the

cashpoint information we had this

2:29:412:29:52

morning. Put the apostrophe in there

as well.

2:29:522:30:02

Stay with us, headlines coming up.

2:30:022:30:11

Hello, this is Breakfast with

Charlie Stayt and Naga Munchetty.

2:30:292:30:31

Coming up before nine,

Stav has the weather.

2:30:312:30:33

But first, a summary of this

morning's main news.

2:30:332:30:37

The Foreign Secretary,

Boris Johnson, is due to arrive

2:30:372:30:39

in Iran in the next few hours,

where he's expected

2:30:392:30:41

to press for the release

of the British-Iranian woman,

2:30:412:30:44

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe.

2:30:442:30:51

The aid-worker has been held

prisoner in the country

2:30:512:30:54

since April 2016.

2:30:542:30:54

She's accused of trying to overthrow

the Iranian government -

2:30:542:30:57

a charge she denies.

2:30:572:30:58

It's expected Mr Johnson will also

discuss Britain's wider

2:30:582:31:00

relations with Iran.

2:31:002:31:02

One of the Cabinet's leading

Brexiteers has suggested that voters

2:31:022:31:05

can use the next general election

to have their say on a final deal

2:31:052:31:08

with the European Union -

and to force a future government

2:31:082:31:11

to change course if

they don't like it.

2:31:112:31:15

The Environment Secretary,

Michael Gove, makes his comments

2:31:152:31:17

in The Daily Telegraph,

a day after Theresa May's

2:31:172:31:24

The Cabinet is expected to meet

in the next fortnight to discuss

2:31:242:31:27

Britain's future relationship

with the EU.

2:31:272:31:28

Officials in Gaza say four people

have died and 160 are injured

2:31:282:31:31

following air strikes on Hamas

military positions by

2:31:312:31:33

Israel in the Gaza Strip.

2:31:332:31:36

The strikes were in retaliation

for Palestinian rocket

2:31:362:31:38

attacks on southern Israel.

2:31:382:31:43

Palestinians and Israeli security

forces have clashed in the West Bank

2:31:432:31:46

since President Trump recognised

Jerusalem as Israel's

2:31:462:31:47

capital on Wednesday.

2:31:472:31:48

Yesterday, the US Ambassador,

Nikki Haley, defended Donald Trump's

2:31:482:31:51

comments and accused the UN of bias

against Israel.

2:31:512:31:58

The wintry weather looks set

to continue with Met Office warnings

2:31:582:32:01

in place for large parts of the UK.

2:32:012:32:03

More snow and freezing temperatures

are forecast for northern

2:32:032:32:05

and eastern regions into tomorrow.

2:32:052:32:06

Yesterday, commuters faced problems

on the roads and railways

2:32:062:32:08

and hundreds of properties remain

without power in the West Midlands.

2:32:082:32:18

We'll have a weather forecast and a

few minutes.

2:32:212:32:23

Firefighters in southern California

are continuing to battle wildfires,

2:32:232:32:25

which have destroyed

hundreds of homes.

2:32:252:32:29

More than 200,000 people have

already fled the area and many more

2:32:292:32:32

are preparing to evacuate.

2:32:322:32:33

President Trump has declared a state

of emergency as the fires

2:32:332:32:36

continue to spread.

2:32:362:32:38

One other story we are focusing on

that has happened just in the last

2:32:382:32:43

couple of hours, we've had news of a

cricket incident.

2:32:432:32:52

Ben Duckett is part of the back-up

squad for the Lions in Perth, he was

2:32:522:32:58

dropped for the third test against

Australia, we found out this morning

2:32:582:33:02

that because he has been suspended

pending to an investigation into an

2:33:022:33:06

incident in a bar in Perth on

Thursday night. Is that things any

2:33:062:33:09

better, because in a bar in a Perth

was where Jonny Bairstow was

2:33:092:33:15

involved, and a curfew was imposed,

that was lifted just before this

2:33:152:33:18

latest incident. Now police are now

members of the public were involved.

2:33:182:33:26

Very scant details. -- no release or

public. Andy in Perth. What do we

2:33:262:33:32

know?

Just when England thought the

disciplinary problems were over,

2:33:322:33:39

this happened. Ben Duckett as you

say is training with England Lions

2:33:392:33:43

squad here in Perth, that is

effectively England's second-tier

2:33:432:33:48

squad. He was expected to play for

their warm up match against a

2:33:482:33:52

Cricket Australia 11, but he was

replaced at relatively short notice,

2:33:522:33:56

we wondered why and because he faces

an ECB enquiry into an incident in a

2:33:562:34:01

bar in Perth on Thursday night. It

is understood he was in the bar with

2:34:012:34:08

players including members of the

test squad. We don't have details of

2:34:082:34:12

the incident itself but we

understand the police weren't

2:34:122:34:15

involved and now members of the

public were involved but he has been

2:34:152:34:20

suspended -- no members of the

police. This will raise questions

2:34:202:34:28

about the behaviour of the players

because staggeringly, this incident

2:34:282:34:31

happened on the first night that the

players were really allowed out

2:34:312:34:34

after a midnight curfew had been

lifted. That curfew was originally

2:34:342:34:41

imposed after Jonny Bairstow was

involved in an incident in Perth

2:34:412:34:47

last month. There is the ongoing

issue of Ben Stokes who is waiting

2:34:472:34:51

to find out if he faces any charges

in an incident in Bristol in

2:34:512:34:57

September. This sort of disciplinary

destruction after everything that's

2:34:572:35:01

happened with England, is the last

thing they need now.

Later we will

2:35:012:35:05

find that the reaction of those

Trevor Bayliss who said after the

2:35:052:35:08

Jonny Bairstow incident that he was

furious that England players need to

2:35:082:35:15

be Sparta, that is why had they

imposed a curfew.

You imagine he

2:35:152:35:20

will be apoplectic about this. I was

at conference and he said players

2:35:202:35:28

would have to be stupid to do

something else after what has

2:35:282:35:31

happened so far. Well something else

have happened. Quite how England

2:35:312:35:34

deal with this, they originally had

this midnight curfew, they lifted it

2:35:342:35:38

for the first night after lifting

it, this happen so where do they go

2:35:382:35:42

from here? Yet more turmoil for an

England team who lets not forget,

2:35:422:35:46

our 2-0 down in this Ashes Series

and going into an match that they

2:35:462:35:52

need to windy if they want to keep

their hopes alive.

This is about

2:35:522:35:55

turning round form.

2:35:552:36:05

On the pitch, opener

Keaton Jennings, has made a case

2:36:062:36:08

for picking him next week,

by scoring 80, and so too has

2:36:082:36:11

Tom Curran , not out 73 and he's

helped edge England into a good

2:36:112:36:14

position in this two

day match, batting

2:36:142:36:16

first they are 313-8.

2:36:162:36:20

All eyes on Manchester and

Merseyside tomorrow for the derbies

2:36:202:36:23

but this lunchtime it is East versus

west London. West Ham versus

2:36:232:36:28

Chelsea. The hammers are in the

bottom three and looking for first

2:36:282:36:32

win under David Moyes but despite

their position, he thinks he is

2:36:322:36:35

starting to make his mark on his new

squad.

2:36:352:36:39

I didn't want to get too carried

away but I have to say the players

2:36:392:36:42

have got really good. They have

tried to take on board everything

2:36:422:36:47

with asked of them. They are doing

the work and right from the start, I

2:36:472:36:52

said they will have to do the work

if they want to play. Hopefully they

2:36:522:36:58

are all doing that.

2:36:582:37:04

Dan's here to tell us what's

on Football Focus this morning.

2:37:042:37:09

There is a statistic decorated. One

seventh of the world's population,

2:37:092:37:15

an estimated 17, will be keeping an

eye on the Manchester derby.

I'd say

2:37:152:37:18

it's estimated. The way they do it

is the Premier League is beamed into

2:37:182:37:23

just over 1 billion homes around the

world. There's a potential audience

2:37:232:37:27

of 1 billion. I did some digging

yesterday because I've questioned

2:37:272:37:32

myself. The most watched television

event ever, you have to get China on

2:37:322:37:41

board, is still the opening ceremony

of Beijing 2008. Only 5 million

2:37:412:37:46

people watched in this country but

around Manhattan 84 million watched

2:37:462:37:50

around the world, and another 16

million or so is watched.

Is this

2:37:502:37:58

considered as big as the opening of

the Beijing Olympics?

It is massive

2:37:582:38:02

around the world, it gives you an

indication as to why players can

2:38:022:38:06

demand such use wages.

Backpedalling?

Let's talk about

2:38:062:38:13

football focus. Weekly watched by 19

billion people.

They are beaming you

2:38:132:38:22

into Mars!

That's a guess. You

mentioned the derbies, we have the

2:38:222:38:28

Manchester derby and also the

Merseyside derby. I have an

2:38:282:38:32

interview with Gylfi Sigurdsson,

Everton are taking on a Liverpool

2:38:322:38:34

side who scored seven in midweek,

the new manager Sam Allardyce,

2:38:342:38:39

back-to-back wins, not conceding

goals, Gylfi Sigurdsson says big Sam

2:38:392:38:43

has made a difference.

Let's have a

look. After a couple of wins, it's

2:38:432:38:48

more confidence in the team, more

positivity around the players. It's

2:38:482:38:53

an deep right track.

Do you think it

was the moving the uncertainty

2:38:532:38:59

around the managerial situation?

It's difficult to say what exactly

2:38:592:39:01

it is. But it does tend to happen

when you get someone in and

2:39:012:39:06

something happens, there's a little

bit of a spark. For us as players,

2:39:062:39:09

it's quite simple. We know when our

next game is and we are doing our

2:39:092:39:14

best to to prepare for it. It would

be an easy excuse to use that but

2:39:142:39:20

it's nice that it is sorted now. And

we know where the club is going.

2:39:202:39:26

We have a north London derby in the

studio, Jermaine Jenas and Martin

2:39:262:39:31

Keown. There's an interview with

Andre Gray, Watford go back to his

2:39:312:39:37

old club only. -- Burnley.

Roy

Hodgson is also talking about openly

2:39:372:39:46

and honestly with England at the

last year rose. And getting Palace

2:39:462:39:50

safe in the division. They lost

their first seven games of the

2:39:502:39:56

season. Harry Kewell, my club are

Crawley town, has not done this

2:39:562:40:00

all-time, but he is talking to us.

He's the first Australian to in the

2:40:002:40:11

Premier League. We have Premier

League predictions. He's a big

2:40:112:40:15

Fulham fan.

Full of all sorts of

interesting facts I imagine. Does he

2:40:152:40:25

know he's going to win the World

Cup?

Probably, yes. I imagine he's

2:40:252:40:29

got it down to one or two. If you

say Germany, Spain or Brazil, you're

2:40:292:40:34

probably right.

We'll talk

championship. Do any of you followed

2:40:342:40:38

Bristol city on Twitter, I do

because their celebrations when they

2:40:382:40:43

tweet are hilarious. Adrian Flynn

stars this thing with his jacket. He

2:40:432:40:49

scored a last-minute winner for

Bristol city against Sheffield

2:40:492:40:53

United, a 2-1 win. The celebration

is on twitter.

What does he do with

2:40:532:41:02

his jacket?

A bit like that.

Does he

really do that?

That's a bad

2:41:022:41:08

impression.

What was that bit.

He

flicks his jacket. Have you seen it?

2:41:082:41:16

Whenever they score, they put the

little goal celebrations on twitter.

2:41:162:41:20

You will on and off camera. You need

to watch it.

His face is good as

2:41:202:41:25

well.

2:41:252:41:35

Aberdeen won against an deep, moving

them into second place in the

2:41:362:41:40

Scottish premiership is a three

points above Rangers. Glasgow are

2:41:402:41:45

out of the European rugby Champions

Cup. The French side opened with a

2:41:452:41:54

brilliant try. Glasgow did lead 17-5

at one point but ended up losing

2:41:542:42:00

29-22. Northampton versus Leicester,

Munster and Bath are all in action.

2:42:002:42:05

A bright outlook for Ronnie Ronnie

O'Sullivan. He will play Stephen

2:42:052:42:14

Maguire in the semifinals and Shaun

Murphy will play Ryan Day. Whatever

2:42:142:42:19

happens, Sullivan's match, he

doesn't feel like you can lose.

2:42:192:42:25

Lizzie Arnold be the first British

athlete to try and retain her title.

2:42:252:42:34

She won gold in Sochi but yesterday,

falling snow hampered her and she

2:42:342:42:40

finished 13th at the latest World

Cup event in Germany. What can you

2:42:402:42:45

do in a snowstorm? She greeted

Gillingham are going to

2:42:452:42:52

early she did not say what you do

with a cup of tea bustle. -- with

2:42:552:43:06

Bushell.

Thank you Mike.

2:43:062:43:10

Truancy is a problem facing many

schools but why do children

2:43:102:43:13

choose to skip classes?

2:43:132:43:14

According to the most recent

statistics from the Department

2:43:142:43:16

for Education, illness is the main

reason why pupils fail

2:43:162:43:18

to attend lessons.

2:43:182:43:19

But with unauthorised absenses

increasing across the UK,

2:43:192:43:21

it seems sickness is not the only

thing keeping pupils away.

2:43:212:43:24

We'll discuss this in a moment,

but first let's hear from some

2:43:242:43:27

children who have been speaking

to the BBC Stories team

2:43:272:43:29

about why they skip lessons.

2:43:292:43:33

I wouldn't go in one day

because I couldn't be bothered.

2:44:022:44:05

Every week?

2:44:052:44:06

Yeah.

2:44:062:44:07

School's dead.

2:44:072:44:08

Nothing to do, it's

the same lessons every day.

2:44:082:44:10

You'd go in and you'd feel

that people are staring

2:44:102:44:13

at you and you'd start feeling

dead panicking yourself.

2:44:132:44:21

Back in the day, I used to be dead

scared and stuff of people.

2:44:212:44:24

I was getting tests for dyslexia,

that knocks your confidence.

2:44:242:44:26

Go home, play PlayStation,

Xbox and when my mum comes home,

2:44:262:44:29

get in my school clothes

and tell her I went to school.

2:44:292:44:32

I used to watch telly all day.

2:44:322:44:34

It's the worst thing I've ever done.

2:44:342:44:36

What would have helped to keep

school in these days?

2:44:362:44:38

More help with my work.

2:44:382:44:40

And help in building

my confidence up.

2:44:402:44:43

Maybe put us on more trips,

don't make the lesson dead,

2:44:432:44:46

put some effort into the work.

2:44:462:44:51

In some schools, they pay

something to go into school,

2:44:512:44:54

that would have been better.

2:44:542:44:59

Now that we've got confidence to go

to colleges, we wish

2:44:592:45:02

we could go back and start

all over again.

2:45:022:45:04

Go to school, get your education.

2:45:042:45:05

And get your head down.

2:45:052:45:06

Don't let your confidence get

you down, get your head

2:45:062:45:09

up and just go for it!

2:45:092:45:10

Work as hard as you can,

make as much money as you can,

2:45:102:45:13

get a job and you'll

have a good life.

2:45:132:45:17

We're joined now by Michelle Gleeson

- the Safeguarding Lead

2:45:172:45:22

at Harrop Fold School in Salford -

who you may know better as Miss Kay

2:45:222:45:25

in the Channel 4 documentary series

Educating Greater Manchester.

2:45:252:45:28

Good morning. Hearing some

children's reflecting on what they

2:45:282:45:35

are told to do and how they are

supposed to think about school, and

2:45:352:45:38

they are not enamoured. Tell us

about your role and how it is linked

2:45:382:45:46

to truancy and what you are aiming

to achieve.

We are quite unique, we

2:45:462:45:50

have a non-teaching team called the

student development team, solely for

2:45:502:45:55

the students, the families, the

community and we go out a lot,

2:45:552:45:58

dealing with families, doing home

visits, and we have a different

2:45:582:46:01

relationship with the students, we

are not teachers, it's you as a

2:46:012:46:06

person, not the grades. We see

people as individual people.

You

2:46:062:46:12

need to sell school to them?

We do.

How do you do that?

We heard get

2:46:122:46:18

good grades, get to school, get a

job, have a decent life, there are

2:46:182:46:23

some people who don't want to fit

into that model, how do you sell

2:46:232:46:27

school to them?

One size does not

fit all. We realise that the teams

2:46:272:46:31

we have different aspects, we have a

school counsellor who deals with

2:46:312:46:34

children with mental health issues,

there is a difference between

2:46:342:46:38

children who can't be bothered to

come to school and children who

2:46:382:46:41

physically can't because they have

mental health issues, we recognise

2:46:412:46:44

that in our students.

How often are

truancy issues nothing to do with

2:46:442:46:49

the school itself? These are things

that, events that are happen in a

2:46:492:46:54

domestic environment, how often is

that the reason that the children

2:46:542:46:57

are not turning up?

That's a high

percentage. What happens at home

2:46:572:47:03

definitely affects, but some

children do not like school. It's

2:47:032:47:06

not everybody but the law says you

have come.

If you have some kind of

2:47:062:47:12

problem at home which is causing

instability, whatever that might be,

2:47:122:47:16

how easy is it for you to go into

that environment and try and

2:47:162:47:22

encourage some kind of change? If

you've already got a problem, with

2:47:222:47:29

the environment, the big step is

getting into the environment to

2:47:292:47:33

help? The challenges building

relationships, not only with you as

2:47:332:47:36

a person but the parents as well.

Making them know we are there for

2:47:362:47:39

them. Signposting to other agencies,

who can help you, do come into

2:47:392:47:45

school? If you have to go to the

bank in the morning to get money for

2:47:452:47:49

your mum or two take your brother

and sister to school, or wearing for

2:47:492:47:53

trainers and people are telling you

after you are not ready for

2:47:532:47:56

learning. You need to be ready for

learning as a whole person and so we

2:47:562:48:00

do that when kids cannot learn.

It

is interesting you'll roll, we will

2:48:002:48:05

show a clip.

2:48:052:48:05

Sometimes you've actually picked

the kids up at their homes

2:48:052:48:08

and driven them into school.

2:48:082:48:09

We've got a clip here.

2:48:092:48:12

To the end.

Turn left. I get mixed

up left and right.

Daddy had

2:48:122:48:20

breakfast?

Yes.

2:48:202:48:23

-- have you had breakfast? Share my

breakfast if you like, I will let

2:48:242:48:30

you.

It's 8am on Wednesday morning.

The student development officer,

2:48:302:48:40

Miss K is out in the local

community.

Oh my God.

The students

2:48:402:48:47

are in, we have direct rinks with

the community. We work with the

2:48:472:48:52

community all the time, we are

always at people's houses. Is the

2:48:522:48:56

second time at this junction. A lot

2:48:562:49:01

attendance you have a resource

department to go out and do this? We

2:49:042:49:08

do. There's me, a team of five

cheerleaders, and attendance league,

2:49:082:49:12

-- team leaders, and attendance

link, and it has an effect on

2:49:172:49:21

people?

2:49:212:49:23

We are unique at where we have the

support from individual students. I

2:49:242:49:32

couldn't comment about other schools

and what they do but we are

2:49:322:49:34

definitely unique in our team.

You

are not deadly but to answer that I

2:49:342:49:39

suppose

2:49:392:49:39

-- you are not dead be able to

answer this I suppose but what you

2:49:422:49:45

do about the other kids where

resources are available?

Realise

2:49:452:49:53

it's not about process killing a

2:49:532:49:55

Realise it's not

about process killing a

2:49:552:49:55

us in if you're joining us with

issues, remember it's not just about

2:50:002:50:07

results.

Always feels weird talking

to a teacher and calling them by

2:50:072:50:14

their first name, still. Old habits.

Thank you very much. It's snowing

2:50:142:50:24

outside. This delighted me when I

came out to work yesterday, big

2:50:242:50:28

flakes, we had the debate about

whether it needs to be warmer,

2:50:282:50:32

either way it is cold, that's view

from Salford quays.

2:50:322:50:39

Here's Stav with a look

at this morning's weather.

2:50:392:50:42

There have been lots of snow showers

the Cheshire and Merseyside

2:50:422:50:46

There have been lots of snow showers

the Cheshire and Merseyside but I've

2:50:462:50:46

struggled to found weather watcher

pictures. This is Staffordshire,

2:50:462:50:51

there will be more wintry showers

here. Parts of Wales, Winter

2:50:512:50:55

wonderland scene. Shropshire has

seen a lot of snow yesterday, really

2:50:552:51:01

deep in places. Causing transport

problems in places. The M6 motorway

2:51:012:51:11

in particular. Snow and ice is a

problem in areas this morning,

2:51:112:51:15

continuing across Scotland for parts

of Northern Ireland across Wales

2:51:152:51:19

into the Cheshire Gap, the odd one

elsewhere but for most of you

2:51:192:51:23

starting off cold, dry and frosty,

lots of sunshine in the Central and

2:51:232:51:27

eastern parts. Light yesterday as

well apart from the far North East

2:51:272:51:32

of Scotland where it is still quite

busy. Temperatures really fall away

2:51:322:51:37

this evening and overnight.

Widespread fast developing, this

2:51:372:51:42

pushes in, that initially rain

bumping to cold air across the

2:51:422:51:47

Midlands, northern England will turn

to heavy snow. It will likely really

2:51:472:51:51

accumulate by the end of the night

into Sunday morning. It could get

2:51:512:51:55

10-20 centimetres over higher

ground. This is disruptive snow over

2:51:552:52:00

the end of Sunday night into

Saturday night into Sunday morning.

2:52:002:52:03

Watch out for this, making journeys

only if you have two, stay indoors.

2:52:032:52:11

It will continue eastwards through

the course of the day but fizzled

2:52:112:52:15

out and turns back to rain. We will

see showers, strong winds in the

2:52:152:52:21

afternoon, there may be severe gales

in the southern counties. Southern

2:52:212:52:27

Ireland will wonder what is the fuss

about, cold and frosty and dry. That

2:52:272:52:34

moves away and it's quite for a town

on Sunday night in demand, this area

2:52:342:52:37

of low pressure is expected to

batter parts of north and west

2:52:372:52:41

France could influence our weather

in the South, mainly south and

2:52:412:52:45

south-eastern area seen persistent

rain, cloud, fairly strong winds,

2:52:452:52:49

and some winter re-nest. Elsewhere,

a dry day with fairly brisk winds,

2:52:492:52:57

bringing showers to parts of

Northern Ireland but a cold day to

2:52:572:53:00

come with some good spells of

sunshine. That area of low pressure

2:53:002:53:05

moves away, quiet on Tuesday with

spells of sunshine after a cold

2:53:052:53:09

frosty start. It gets more unsettled

in the middle to late about of the

2:53:092:53:13

week with more showers and

strengthening winds. It will remain

2:53:132:53:16

strengthening winds. It will remain

cold. When the weather is cold,

2:53:162:53:20

watch the flight. Hot honey and

lemon. Protect yourself!

It mainly

2:53:202:53:25

the dust in the studio.

Don't give

away those secrets.

2:53:252:53:31

That's bring you up to date with our

lead story.

2:53:312:53:42

The Foreign Secretary, Boris

Johnson, has arrived in Tehran.

2:53:422:53:44

He's there to hold talks

with his Iranian counterpart

2:53:442:53:46

and is expected to push

for the release of the

2:53:462:53:49

British-Iranian woman,

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe.

2:53:492:53:50

The aid-worker is serving a five

year prison sentence in the country,

2:53:502:53:53

accused of trying to overthrow

the Iranian government -

2:53:532:53:55

a charge she denies.

2:53:552:53:56

It's expected Mr Johnson will also

discuss Britain's wider

2:53:562:53:58

relations with Iran.

2:53:582:54:02

More on that story just after 9am.

2:54:022:54:06

The number of new car sales

in the UK has dropped by 12 % -

2:54:062:54:10

a fall many are blaming

on the rising cost of buying

2:54:102:54:13

new wheels on credit.

2:54:132:54:14

More than four in every five cars

bought on finance are purchased

2:54:142:54:17

through personal contract payments.

2:54:172:54:19

We're joined now by Paul Lewis

from Radio 4's Moneybox programme -

2:54:192:54:22

the numbers don't appear to be

adding up like they used to, Paul?

2:54:222:54:26

Lots of people do these deals,

buying their cars this way?

They do.

2:54:282:54:33

The problem is what you are really

doing is you are financing the

2:54:332:54:37

difference between the cost of the

new car and what it is worth after

2:54:372:54:40

three years. It's that gap you are

borrowing the money to pay. Two

2:54:402:54:45

things have happened, first of all

new car prices have written part

2:54:452:54:49

because of the falling pound and

second-hand prices have fallen. That

2:54:492:54:53

is partly because of the success of

these schemes, more and more

2:54:532:54:57

second-hand cars are on the market.

That gap between the new cost and

2:54:572:55:00

the use cost is growing and that is

why you have to borrow more money to

2:55:002:55:05

fund that gap.

Kenny give us a sense

of what the price rise is, people

2:55:052:55:11

will face? What will be the impact

on what happens at the end of you

2:55:112:55:17

have a car?

This is why I have my

glasses on, I have a small print

2:55:172:55:20

spreadsheet. An Audi 83 over just

over since March to now, that is an

2:55:202:55:29

extra 33%, and extra thirsty by

that. Over a year, it's an extra

2:55:292:55:33

50%. A small Mercedes, 20%. A

Vauxhall, 16%. Peugeot, 10%. These

2:55:332:55:44

are really big differences people

have to fund. If you've already got

2:55:442:55:47

one of these deals and got one of

these cars, what you will find is

2:55:472:55:51

you will come to renew it next year

and you will find suddenly you

2:55:512:55:55

cannot afford the same model because

the price rises so much that you

2:55:552:55:58

have to either by a less expensive

vehicle or just try and keep it.

2:55:582:56:05

Then you have the problem you have

do pay this big so-called balloon

2:56:052:56:09

payment at the end which may also be

too expensive for you.

Thank you.

2:56:092:56:15

And you can hear lots more on this

on Radio 4's Money Box

2:56:152:56:18

programme from midday.

2:56:182:56:19

Whether it's Christmas carols

round the fire or welcoming

2:56:192:56:21

in the New Year with a hearty

rendition of Auld Lang Syne,

2:56:212:56:24

the festive season is a time

when even the most reluctant

2:56:242:56:27

performer might well

give singing a whirl!

2:56:272:56:35

Give it a go.

2:56:352:56:36

For those who still need

a little more encouragement,

2:56:362:56:38

your might be interested to hear

that research suggests singing can

2:56:382:56:41

lift the spirits and have

real health benefits.

2:56:412:56:43

All next week, we'll be

investigating this in more detail

2:56:432:56:46

and we'll be joining Dan,

Lou, Mike and Steph to perform

2:56:462:56:49

in a concert on Wednesday night.

2:56:492:56:51

So as preparation, we've called

on some famous faces

2:56:512:56:53

for their top tips.

2:56:532:56:57

None of us are seasoned singers.

Unaccustomed to public singing.

2:56:572:57:01

SINGING WARM-UP NOISES.

2:57:052:57:06

Why is Lou's deeper than mine?

2:57:062:57:08

Ahhh.

2:57:082:57:09

Ahhh.

2:57:092:57:10

You can't ahhh, do that?

2:57:102:57:11

Mmm, ahh.

2:57:112:57:12

Ah no, vibration when you go up.

2:57:122:57:14

What are the dos and don'ts?

2:57:142:57:16

Well, if you are doing

a little gospel music,

2:57:162:57:23

one thing is to make sure you have,

you keep a rhythm in your body.

2:57:232:57:27

HE SINGS A SCALE.

2:57:272:57:28

Can do you do that?

2:57:282:57:29

HE SINGS A SCALE.

2:57:292:57:30

Mmmmmmmm.

2:57:302:57:32

Ahhhhhhh.

2:57:322:57:33

And just keep the vibration going.

2:57:332:57:34

We'll do it together.

2:57:342:57:35

Mmmmmmmmm.

2:57:352:57:36

Ahhhhhhhh.

2:57:362:57:38

I've got the vibration.

2:57:382:57:39

# It's that wonderful name of Jesus.

2:57:392:57:44

# Bless that wonderful name #.

2:57:442:57:49

I mean come on, Charlie, no one,

you're not going to lose your job.

2:57:492:57:53

No one expects you to be

Pavarotti up there.

2:57:532:57:55

# Here it is, Merry Christmas,

everybody's having fun #.

2:57:552:58:04

Put some move into it.

2:58:042:58:05

# Look to the future now,

it's only just begun...#

2:58:052:58:15

I love those harmonies, well done!

Very kind of all those people. We

2:58:172:58:27

are looking forward to a performance

at the Bridgewater Hall.

2:58:272:58:29

As part of our series on singing,

we'll be performing with

2:58:292:58:32

the Manchester Inspirational Voices

gospel choir at

2:58:322:58:34

The Bridgewater Hall.

2:58:342:58:35

Kindly inviting us to be part of the

fun.

2:58:352:58:39

We won't know the song

until we arrive there on Wednesday

2:58:392:58:42

morning and the challenge is to see

if we're "performance ready"

2:58:422:58:47

in just nine hours!

2:58:472:58:51

Our series next week is all about

singing, it's not just about for

2:58:512:58:57

those who can think, for those who

never do like us to give it a try,

2:58:572:59:01

see what happens. Headlines coming

up, we will see you soon.

2:59:012:59:09

Hello.

3:00:003:00:02

This is Breakfast, with

Charlie Stayt and Naga Munchetty.

3:00:023:00:09

Boris Johnson arrives to Iran

to try to secure the release

3:00:093:00:11

of a jailed British mother.

3:00:113:00:12

The Foreign Secretary is due

to arrive there in the next few

3:00:123:00:15

hours and will raise "grave

concerns" about Nazanin

3:00:153:00:17

Zaghari-Ratcliffe, who's spent

the past 18 months behind bars.

3:00:173:00:26

Good morning.

3:00:293:00:31

It's Saturday 9th December.

3:00:313:00:31

Also this morning:

3:00:313:00:33

A Brexit breakthrough

by the Prime Minister,

3:00:333:00:35

but a long journey lies ahead.

3:00:353:00:36

We'll get reaction to yesterday's

deal and look at what next

3:00:363:00:40

for Britain's departure

from the European Union.

3:00:403:00:46

President Trump declares a state

of emergency in California as strong

3:00:463:00:50

winds continue to fan the flames

of a series of

3:00:503:00:51

devastating wildfires.

3:00:513:01:02

In sport - another off the field

incident for England

3:01:023:01:04

on their Ashes tour.

3:01:043:01:05

It's just been revealed why batsman

Ben Duckett was been dropped

3:01:053:01:08

from England's Ashes

tour match today -

3:01:083:01:09

it follows an incident

in a Perth bar.

3:01:093:01:13

In sharp contrast here more snow

and ice are on the way

3:01:133:01:15

with freezing temperatures likely

to cause travel disruption.

3:01:153:01:17

Stav will have the latest for us.

3:01:173:01:24

A few snow showers and the potential

of some significant snow.

3:01:243:01:26

Join me later for the details.

3:01:263:01:34

Good morning.

3:01:343:01:35

First, our main story.

3:01:353:01:45

The Foreign Secretary,

Boris Johnson, has arrived

3:01:473:01:49

in Iran shortly,

where he will express

3:01:493:01:50

what he describes as "grave

concerns" over the imprisonment

3:01:503:01:53

of the British-Iranian woman,

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe.

3:01:533:01:54

The aid-worker has been held

prisoner in the country since April

3:01:543:01:57

2016, accused of trying to overthrow

the Iranian government -

3:01:573:01:59

a charge she denies.

3:01:593:02:00

Mr Johnson is also expected

to discuss Britain's wider

3:02:003:02:02

relations with Iran.

3:02:023:02:03

Here's our diplomatic

correspondent James Robbins.

3:02:033:02:05

Boris Johnson's first visit to Iran

could hardly be more sensitive.

3:02:053:02:07

Last month he was accused

of damaging the case for the release

3:02:073:02:10

of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe

by remarks he later apologised for.

3:02:103:02:13

On his way to Tehran to see

Iran's Foreign Minister,

3:02:133:02:15

he issued a statement,

saying:

3:02:153:02:25

The Foreign Secretary says

3:02:333:02:34

he will also emphasise the UK's

continued support for the nuclear

3:02:343:02:38

deal with Iran, despite its

repudiation by President Trump.

3:02:383:02:39

But he will also make clear UK's

concerns about some of Iran's

3:02:393:02:42

activities, notably

in Syria and Yemen.

3:02:423:02:43

Mr Johnson described

the relationship with

3:02:433:02:45

Iran as "improving,

3:02:453:02:46

but not straightforward."

3:02:463:02:47

The Foreign Secretary has been

careful to lower any expectations

3:02:473:02:50

of imminent release

for Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe,

3:02:503:02:51

warning that such cases

are very difficult.

3:02:513:03:01

That was our diplomatic

correspondent James

3:03:023:03:04

Robbins reporting.

3:03:043:03:10

One of the Cabinet's leading

Brexiteers has suggested that voters

3:03:103:03:12

can use the next general election

to have their say on a final deal

3:03:123:03:16

with the European Union and to force

a future government to change course

3:03:163:03:19

if they don't like it.

3:03:193:03:20

The Environment Secretary,

Michael Gove, made the comments in

3:03:203:03:22

an article in The Daily Telegraph,

just a day after Theresa May's

3:03:223:03:25

agreement in Brussels cleared

the way for trade talks.

3:03:253:03:27

We can speak now to our political

correspondent Jonathan Blake.

3:03:273:03:29

Jonathan, what more

has Mr Gove said?

3:03:293:03:39

Michael Gove is the first Tory

minister to come out and give his

3:03:493:04:06

opinion on what has happened in

Brussels over the last 24 hour was.

3:04:063:04:16

He is reminding people of the key

issues and praising the Prime

3:04:163:04:24

Minister's tenacity.

3:04:243:04:34

It will take us a few weeks and

months to understand this ambiguous

3:04:373:04:44

agreement which property News just

get on with the negotiations.

3:04:443:05:03

The wintry weather looks set

to continue with Met Office warnings

3:06:073:06:10

in place for large parts of the UK.

3:06:103:06:15

Some of these reindeers are getting

the first taste of snow in Dudley.

3:06:203:06:24

And in

And in the early hours,

more snowfalls have been reported

3:06:353:06:38

the early ve been reported

3:06:383:06:39

across the UK, although conditions

are expect to ease for today.

At Manchester Airport,

wings have had to be de-iced.

On the Isle of Man,

the weekend began early,

3:06:483:06:50

as all schools were closed.

3:06:503:06:51

Elsewhere, there have been

problems on the roads.

3:06:513:06:53

The extremes of the weather

are expected to eventually be

3:06:533:06:56

confined to north-east Scotland,

but tomorrow, a spell of heavy snow

3:06:563:06:58

is likely over the Midlands

and parts of Wales and northern

3:06:583:07:01

England.

3:07:013:07:03

20cm is quite significant.

3:07:033:07:07

We will press ahead of that,

we will salt ahead of that,

3:07:073:07:10

but past 20cm we might have

to reduce the network and keep

3:07:103:07:12

key routes open.

3:07:123:07:14

That is much as you can do -

20cm is significant.

3:07:143:07:16

The Met Office is warning that some

in the countryside may be cut off -

3:07:163:07:20

if the skies were not

convincing enough.

minutes with the latest forecast.

Firefighters in southern California

are continuing to battle wildfires,

3:07:343:07:40

which have destroyed hundreds

of homes.

3:07:403:07:46

More than 200,000 people have

already fled the area and many more

are preparing to evacuate.

President Trump has declared

a state of emergency

3:07:503:07:52

as the fires continue to spread.

3:07:523:07:55

we've been hearing this morning

burst in more trouble for the

3:07:553:07:59

England Ashes campaign. Batsmen Ben

Duckett has been dropped from the

3:07:593:08:02

tour following an incident in Perth.

Mike, we have heard about this in

3:08:023:08:06

the last couple of hours?

We had

something was wrong because Ben

3:08:063:08:10

Duckett was meant to play in a warm

up match but was dropped and

3:08:103:08:14

replaced in that match. We found out

it's because he had been suspended

3:08:143:08:19

while he is investigated for an

incident in a bar in Perth and if

3:08:193:08:23

that means any bells, it's because

you remember at the beginning of the

3:08:233:08:27

door, Jonny Bairstow was involved in

an incident in a bar in Perth. Then

3:08:273:08:30

a curfew was imposed on the England

team meaning they had to be back in

3:08:303:08:36

the hotel by midnight. That curfew

was lifted on Thursday night, the

3:08:363:08:40

players went out, and in the bar

when the incident took place, a lot

3:08:403:08:44

of the senior squad were there as

well. This was the first night after

3:08:443:08:48

the curfew and there's been another

incident. This time we understand no

3:08:483:08:52

police were involved or calls, no

members of the public, the security

3:08:523:08:56

team were present and you may have

deduced that perhaps they could be

3:08:563:09:02

between the players themselves or

Australia. It's the timing that is

3:09:023:09:10

staggering.

For those that haven't

followed closely, in itself this may

3:09:103:09:15

or may not be a serious incident, we

are not in a position to judge, but

3:09:153:09:20

there's been a sequence of issues of

discipline around the team?

Ben

3:09:203:09:24

Stokes is waiting to hear if he will

be charged following the incident in

3:09:243:09:27

September. Jonny Bairstow incident

in the beginning of the tour in

3:09:273:09:33

Australia, then Trevor Bayliss said

he was furious and said England

3:09:333:09:36

players needed to be smarter. Here

they are seen as the curfew is

3:09:363:09:41

lifted, they go out and there is an

incident. We now wait for England to

3:09:413:09:46

see if another curfew is imposed and

what reaction there will be this

3:09:463:09:49

time.

Thank you.

3:09:493:10:00

The main news, Boris Johnson has

arrived in Tah round

3:10:003:10:03

--

3:10:053:10:06

other -- Terhan. We can now talk to

the MP Tulip Siddiq to joins us from

3:10:113:10:18

our London newsroom. Thank you for

taking the time to talk to us today.

3:10:183:10:28

This is something that her family

has been pressing for, what impact

3:10:283:10:32

do you think the visit will have?

We

had a conversation with the Foreign

3:10:323:10:36

Office yesterday and we were very

clear to stress that Boris Johnson

3:10:363:10:40

was not going to Iran just to

release her and there should be no

3:10:403:10:45

expectations of him coming back with

her. But I asked whether he would be

3:10:453:10:50

raising the fact that she needs to

be released in humanitarian rows.

3:10:503:10:56

And he will be raising it with the

authorities but we should not expect

3:10:563:11:01

any miracle. What we should ask is

whether he can arrange for a visa

3:11:013:11:07

for Richard Ratcliffe to go to Iran,

bear in mind she has not been able

3:11:073:11:13

to go to Iran to see his daughter or

wife because he hasn't been granted

3:11:133:11:17

a Visa for the last 19 months.

That's a tangible has we were asked

3:11:173:11:22

of the Foreign Secretary when he

goes to Iran.

The problem as his red

3:11:223:11:29

clay, he doesn't believe he is safe

to visit her on his own. The

3:11:293:11:34

connector as he's made clear.

With

vast that if he does make

3:11:343:11:39

arrangements for a decent, he needs

to make arrangements for security.

3:11:393:11:44

It is risky for him to go to Iran,

but we have to put faith in the

3:11:443:11:48

Foreign Office, if we can get India

ran to visit his daughter and wife

3:11:483:11:53

imprisoned, the Foreign Office have

two guarantee his security as a

3:11:533:11:58

citizen. The other thing I discussed

about this trip is whether Boris

3:11:583:12:06

Johnson will visit Nazanin himself

we have previously had a problem

3:12:063:12:11

with a diplomat going to Iran, going

to the prison where Nazanin is based

3:12:113:12:15

but not seen her face to face. That

is one thing I pushed for if Boris

3:12:153:12:20

Johnson is there in Iran, will he

try and see my constituents face to

3:12:203:12:24

face?

Have you spoken to her

recently?

I spoke to her about ten

3:12:243:12:29

days ago. In my conversation even

though she was trying to appear

3:12:293:12:35

upbeat, she was trying to thank all

the campaigners who are working on

3:12:353:12:38

her behalf here, she thanked me as

well, it's clear her mental health

3:12:383:12:43

is fragile. That is what worries me,

that she has a court hearing

3:12:433:12:46

tomorrow. She will spend yet another

Christmas separated from her

3:12:463:12:51

daughter who is growing up without

her, without her husband, and we

3:12:513:12:55

need to make sure she does not go

back to being suicidal, being on

3:12:553:12:59

hunger strike which is what she was

at the time. When I did speak to

3:12:593:13:04

her, it was quite strange because we

started talking about our daughters

3:13:043:13:08

and she said to me casually that

when she was a solitary confinement,

3:13:083:13:13

she suddenly remembered she had

tickets to Papa

3:13:133:13:16

tickets to Papa

3:13:163:13:17

That she could not communicate --

Papa pig. The worry of letting her

3:13:183:13:26

daughter down. Then suddenly this

menacing voice said casually, that's

3:13:263:13:34

just a reminder you're speaking to a

prisoner in Iran. You can imagine

3:13:343:13:40

what her life is like at the moment.

I do worry about her mental health

3:13:403:13:44

and that's why if Boris Johnson goes

to Iran, he sees her face to face,

3:13:443:13:48

it will be a boost to her that

people are rooting for her, trying

3:13:483:13:52

to call for her release and she has

not been forgotten.

Tulip Siddiq, MP

3:13:523:13:59

for Hampstead and Kilburn, thanks

for joining us.

3:13:593:14:04

That speak to our security

correspondent. He is in Bahrain.

3:14:043:14:09

Boris Johnson goes to Iran over a

British woman's fate, this is a

3:14:093:14:22

sensitive diplomatic area.

This is

he is basically walking into a

3:14:223:14:29

diplomatic minefield here. It's

incredibly sensitive. The difficulty

3:14:293:14:33

for Boris Johnson and any visiting

Western minister is there two Irans.

3:14:333:14:42

The official one he will be met and

greet and buy the Foreign Minister,

3:14:423:14:46

the red carpet with the elected

government, and then dig deep state,

3:14:463:14:52

the hardliners, the radicals, the

guardians of the Islamic Revolution,

3:14:523:14:58

the judiciary by the people who do

not trust or like the West and want

3:14:583:15:03

to manufacture a difficulty with the

West. Even if he was able to get

3:15:033:15:08

some encouraging words for the

Foreign Minister, he may well get

3:15:083:15:12

those words, that doesn't mean the

hardliners will agree to death. Iran

3:15:123:15:16

will have a shopping list of what

they want in return, any concession

3:15:163:15:20

they feel they are making on there.

I'm looking at the surroundings

3:15:203:15:25

behind you, you are in Bahrain,

there is a security conference

3:15:253:15:29

taking place. That is happening in

the light of President Trump's

3:15:293:15:33

comments about to reason and? --

about Jerusalem's?

I'm in a luxury

3:15:333:15:44

hotel and Qatar has not been invited

this year. All morning we have been

3:15:443:15:50

hearing criticisms of this

announcement and privately, Western

3:15:503:15:55

counterterrorism specialists have

been telling me they are very

3:15:553:15:56

concerned that this is going to

generate more terrorism and the

3:15:563:16:01

previous Saudi ambassador to London,

who before that ran this country's

3:16:013:16:08

intelligence service for MIDI

quarter of a century, said this will

3:16:083:16:10

be oxygen and nutrition too radical.

They feared this will encourage

3:16:103:16:17

radical recruiters for Isis and

Al-Qaeda to say look what the West

3:16:173:16:22

is doing, look what the leader of

the democratic world is doing, you

3:16:223:16:27

should be with us not them. There is

a fear here that we will see more

3:16:273:16:31

terrorism because of this

announcement.

Thank you.

3:16:313:16:38

Here's Stav with a look

at this morning's weather.

3:16:383:16:42

Snow for many of us?

3:16:423:16:44

Snow for many of us?

3:16:443:16:47

Good morning. Slow across the North

and west, the East is dry and sunny.

3:16:473:16:52

That is how we will see things

today. Some incredible weather

3:16:523:16:55

watchers picture about whether

Winter wonderland scene. Shropshire

3:16:553:17:04

had some very heavy snow yesterday,

disruptive snow in fact. We think

3:17:043:17:09

country showers across parts of the

West Midlands into North Wales and

3:17:093:17:12

Cheshire and Merseyside. The snow is

there in Highland, plenty of silent

3:17:123:17:17

leg showers moving down. They will

have those risks. More showers for

3:17:173:17:25

parts of Scotland, Northern Ireland

and running to the Cheshire gap,

3:17:253:17:29

they will push further westwards

northwards into Lancashire and

3:17:293:17:31

Manchester, the odd one across West

Wales. They find dry sunny day after

3:17:313:17:40

a cold start. A really cold evening

the first part of the night, snow

3:17:403:17:46

showers continue across the West,

then there is rain that pushes are

3:17:463:17:50

from the South West as advance into

the cold air, it will turn quickly

3:17:503:17:53

to heavy snow during the early hours

and into Sunday morning. Anyway and

3:17:533:17:57

this meeting, the Midlands, into

northern England, parts of Wales, is

3:17:573:18:01

this glitzy ten centimetres or maybe

more as a higher ground, 15-20

3:18:013:18:06

centimetres, that is disruptive snow

so you can imagine how it will be

3:18:063:18:10

like on Sunday morning. Take care if

you have two had out on the roads,

3:18:103:18:13

the snow will continue through the

course of the morning into the

3:18:133:18:16

afternoon. It will shift eastwards,

starting to peter out and turned

3:18:163:18:20

back into sleety rain for many, then

across cell there will be westerly

3:18:203:18:27

winds, parts of south Wales and the

Bristol Channel. Eight or 9 degrees

3:18:273:18:35

here, Scotland and Northern Ireland

apart from wintry showers, dry,

3:18:353:18:39

sunny and cold. There is an area of

low pressure, moving to the main

3:18:393:18:43

continent, this area of low

pressure, storm will bring some

3:18:433:18:46

damaging weather to parts of France.

This northern edge may quit southern

3:18:463:18:50

Britain through the course of

Monday. Cloudy, windy, a bit of

3:18:503:18:54

winter Venus in it. To the north

showers but largely fine and dry.

3:18:543:19:00

Sunshine although still cold. Things

calm down into Tuesday, those areas

3:19:003:19:05

of low pressure move away, a dry one

for most, lighter winds and spills

3:19:053:19:09

of sunshine a frosty start. It's

very cold, isn't

3:19:093:19:13

of sunshine a frosty start. It's

very cold, isn't it?

3:19:133:19:16

You're watching Breakfast.

3:19:163:19:17

Time now for a look

at the newspapers.

3:19:173:19:27

The broadcaster Ian Collins is here

to tell us what's caught his eye.

3:19:283:19:31

You often see papers having

arguments with each other but the

3:19:313:19:36

Telegraph is now digging into the

Financial Times's your editor.

They

3:19:363:19:41

are claiming back in March there was

a lunch between the FT editor and

3:19:413:19:46

Jean-Claude Juncker from the EU

Commission. They are very

3:19:463:19:51

pro-remain. Apparently in that

month, Lionel Barber happened to say

3:19:513:19:57

we have done some calculation that

the paper as we reckon that Brexit

3:19:573:20:02

will cost 60 billion euros. As a

result of that, it is suggested by

3:20:023:20:08

the mischievous Daily Telegraph

perhaps that Jean-Claude Juncker and

3:20:083:20:15

others dined out on this figure

saying it could be 60 million. The

3:20:153:20:19

suggestion is that the Financial

Times could have cost us an extra 15

3:20:193:20:23

billion as a result of that month,

the most constant lunch in history,

3:20:233:20:26

as they say.

It says Mr Barber is

such a committed europhile that he

3:20:263:20:36

was

3:20:363:20:37

high

3:20:393:20:39

. -- high honour for it.

There's a

story in the Guardian about the Pope

3:20:403:20:45

about the use of words?

The Lord's

Prayer. Everybody knows the Lord's

3:20:453:20:51

Prayer if you are religious or not

if you are a Christian or not.

3:20:513:20:55

You've heard it often enough Avenue?

That great feeling when you are

3:20:553:20:59

little in the assembly, you can

recite it without looking at it.

3:20:593:21:03

They've changed the words over time.

The words have been changed, in

3:21:033:21:07

France they have a different version

but it all comes down to the line

3:21:073:21:10

lead us not into temptation. Pope

argues that God is leading us into

3:21:103:21:17

temptation, and God is God and he

would do no such thing, it is

3:21:173:21:22

scurrilous to suggest otherwise is,

and adding words there. He thinks

3:21:223:21:27

the version should be do not let us

fall into temptation which would be

3:21:273:21:33

more appropriate?

You can imagine in

religious circles this could be a

3:21:333:21:37

matter of debate.

I imagine there

are people writing e-mails right now

3:21:373:21:40

that the outrageousness of tinkering

around with the Lord's Prayer. There

3:21:403:21:47

are people dedicating every waking

hours to this, to me there are lots

3:21:473:21:51

of things that could change. There

are inappropriate versus all over

3:21:513:21:55

the place.

That is a whole other

debate. This reflects the Pope

3:21:553:21:59

trying to transform or being

transformative figure when it comes

3:21:593:22:04

to the church.

I know he is the Pope

and he is very important. But I'm

3:22:043:22:10

not sure that the pontiff brief

extends to monkeying around with a

3:22:103:22:14

big player.

But if anyone can come

and be Pope can?

Said that the

3:22:143:22:22

written on the side of the Pope

Mobil?

I want if some people should

3:22:223:22:26

have the influence they have. You

take this story out and I'm almost

3:22:263:22:33

resentful about giving this

publicity.

I agree with you, there's

3:22:333:22:37

a reason I picked it. This is the

prankster, I love that word, who

3:22:373:22:43

cemented a microwave to his own

head. His name is Jason Windle and

3:22:433:22:47

he is 22, and he did a stunned when

he put a microwave on his head and

3:22:473:22:54

the firefighters had to come out and

rescue it.

Why have you picked this

3:22:543:22:58

story? Because I think he knew

exactly what he was doing.

We all

3:22:583:23:04

know the Charlie bit my finger at

YouTube.

It hurts when Charlie does

3:23:043:23:08

that!

I thought you were recounting

a story.

You're in denial.

I thought

3:23:083:23:15

we got over.

The people that made

their video made a 6-figure salary

3:23:153:23:24

and they didn't realise at the time,

they put it onto YouTube and it went

3:23:243:23:27

viral and has hundreds of millions

of hits. You can make a lot of money

3:23:273:23:31

out of duty. I think this guy with

the microwave knew exactly what he

3:23:313:23:38

was doing.

In this case, allowing

people to put dangerous things out

3:23:383:23:46

there? That somebody had to call 999

presumably because this man had his

3:23:463:24:00

head stuck in cement.

That isn't

clever and it's a waste of

3:24:003:24:05

resources. Will get hundreds of

millions of hits and microwave head

3:24:053:24:14

boy...

It makes the order is

reluctant to show this picture of a

3:24:143:24:21

nearly didn't do this story.

I think

they have this morning defile and

3:24:213:24:27

their biggest unwanted Christmas

present story.

The other day I made

3:24:273:24:31

a toasted sandwich and loved it. Ham

and cheese toasted salad. I've

3:24:313:24:36

-- toasted salad.

I've never

understood by all the things that

3:24:383:24:43

people buy and own news, the

sandwich toaster, a toasted

3:24:433:24:48

sandwiches quite a common thing you

get from one of those. Why this

3:24:483:24:51

would be on the list...

Is it

because people already have one?

I

3:24:513:24:56

think it's cleaning.

They're better

these days. A lot of what this says

3:24:563:25:05

as well as people don't know how to

use these bread makers and slow

3:25:053:25:08

cookers.

The bread-maker I can

understand, you have these

3:25:083:25:13

ingredients but a few Jenna had to

make a toasted salad and a sandwich

3:25:133:25:17

maker, thank you you should be

carted out the back.

Make the Sam

3:25:173:25:20

Wood and put it in the toaster?

Shut

the lid...

You have to barter both

3:25:203:25:27

ways of making a good toasted

sandwich.

Half of given presents are

3:25:303:25:34

never used.

What would be your

favourite filling for your toasted

3:25:343:25:38

sandwich?

Traditional, if you don't

have cheese, you're not part of the

3:25:383:25:44

club. Maybe watch a bit of ham in

there.

Only in. Never tomato. Causes

3:25:443:25:49

the sogginess on the inside.

If you

buy it straight into it, it can take

3:25:493:25:55

the roof of your mouth.

Heavy on the

Worcester sauce.

Would you? Tabasco.

3:25:553:26:01

All the way.

Good.

Enjoy one later?

Might go for one now.

They will talk

3:26:013:26:10

to Saturday kitchen in a while, we

should ask them what their perfect

3:26:103:26:15

toasted damages, it I bet it's

impressive.

That's where you get the

3:26:153:26:19

perfect recipe.

3:26:193:26:22

The countdown to next

year's football World Cup

3:26:223:26:24

is well under way.

3:26:243:26:25

The players are in training,

fans are booking tickets

3:26:253:26:27

and managers are pouring over

the stats to try and get the edge

3:26:273:26:30

over their opponents.

3:26:303:26:31

Russia plays host to the tournament

and that's where a rather more

3:26:313:26:34

unique group of experts are also

being put through their paces

3:26:343:26:37

ahead of the main event.

3:26:373:26:38

Our Moscow Correspondent,

Steve Rosenberg, has

3:26:383:26:40

been to find out more.

3:26:403:26:45

Forget Lionel Messi or Ronaldo,

these could be the real stars of the

3:26:453:26:51

World Cup. They are rusher's fairy

fortune tellers, all of them were

3:26:513:26:57

told, experts at predicting football

results. As your intrepid Moscow

3:26:573:27:02

correspondent, Sarah and I have

visited all the host cities for next

3:27:023:27:07

year's tournament and discovered a

menagerie of soccer soothsayers.

3:27:073:27:13

First stop, Saatchi. Here's the

stadium. Meanwhile down at the local

3:27:133:27:20

aquarium...

This is Harry the altar

and in so cheap he has a reputation

3:27:203:27:25

for results, with a 50% success

rate. I will ask him about England.

3:27:253:27:34

The chances that the World Cup. Yes

or no? Ready? He's gone straight for

3:27:343:27:40

the green. It took seconds, he's

decided, no doubt about it from

3:27:403:27:45

England to win.

Onto Ekaterinburg

where the excitement is building on

3:27:453:27:49

the pitch but in the zoo. Maggots at

the ready, meet the fortune-telling

3:27:493:27:54

meerkat. I'm told he has plenty of

experience picking winners, let's

3:27:543:28:00

see where he's gone. England? That's

a good sign. Ever since pulled the

3:28:003:28:08

German octopus hit the headlines in

2010 with his World Cup predictions,

3:28:083:28:11

the search has been on for a worthy

successor. Have they found one in

3:28:113:28:16

Saint Petersburg? At the world

famous Hermitage Museum, they

3:28:163:28:22

believe their animal Oracle beats

the opposition by a whisker. Meet

3:28:223:28:30

the fortune-telling cat. He will be

predicting the soccer scores. Let's

3:28:303:28:34

see he chooses in this combination.

3:28:343:28:37

Crystal ball on four legs, he is

not, I suspect. But at least he is

3:28:423:28:47

cute. It's a curious world.

Very

bizarre.

No more curious than if we

3:28:473:28:58

were to introduce Saturday kitchen.

And then ask him what his favourites

3:28:583:29:10

toastie?

It has to be cheese with a

fresh truffles and maybe a view

3:29:103:29:21

cornichons in there and with a bag

yet and love.

You're winding me up

3:29:213:29:24

on you?

Of course not!

What's on the

programme?

Is our special guest is

3:29:243:29:34

the fabulous cornichons, you are

here to face food heaven or food

3:29:343:29:39

hell, what's your food heaven?

Anything with spinach, pine nuts and

3:29:393:29:43

seafood.

Food help?

Snails. Sorry

about that but you.

Don't be so yet!

3:29:433:29:53

They're delicious, don't worry.

Two

brilliant chefs here as well. What

3:29:533:29:59

will you make?

Were making a rice

dish with saffron and pumpkin,

3:29:593:30:07

chestnuts, caramelised onions, modes

of spices, it's delicious.

Very

3:30:073:30:10

buttery. Anton?

A seasonal dish,

it's caramelised with a chestnut

3:30:103:30:20

sauce and a turnip salad.

Two great

dishes. Amazing dishes. I've got

3:30:203:30:24

white wines today. Across-the-board

whites but all delicious.

You guys

3:30:243:30:30

at home are in charge of whether

Meera Syal gets food heaven or hell.

3:30:303:30:37

We have images of you making your

pot toastie on the weekend. Thanks.

3:30:373:30:40

-- posh toastie. Thanks. Headlines

coming up in just a moment.

3:30:433:30:53

Hello, this is Breakfast with

Charlie Stayt and Naga Munchetty.

3:31:153:31:17

Coming up before nine,

Stav has the weather.

3:31:173:31:19

But first, a summary of this

morning's main news.

3:31:193:31:29

The Foreign Secretary,

Boris Johnson, has arrived

3:31:293:31:36

in Iran, where he's expected

3:31:363:31:37

to press for the release

of the British-Iranian woman,

3:31:373:31:39

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe.

3:31:393:31:40

The aid-worker has been held

prisoner in the country

3:31:403:31:42

since April 2016.

3:31:423:31:43

She's accused of trying to overthrow

the Iranian government -

3:31:433:31:46

a charge she denies.

3:31:463:31:53

I had a conversation with the

Foreign Office who stressed that

3:31:533:31:56

Boris Johnson was not going to Iran

just to secure Nazarene's release.

3:31:563:32:04

He will be raising it with the

Iranians authorities, but it was

3:32:043:32:12

made clear we should not expect any

miracles. -- the Moore.

3:32:123:32:26

One of the Cabinet's leading

Brexiteers has suggested that voters

3:32:263:32:29

can use the next general election

to have their say on a final deal

3:32:293:32:32

with the European Union -

and to force a future government

3:32:323:32:35

to change course if

they don't like it.

3:32:353:32:37

The Environment Secretary,

Michael Gove, makes his comments

3:32:373:32:39

in The Daily Telegraph,

a day after Theresa May's

3:32:393:32:41

agreement in Brussels cleared

the way for trade talks.

3:32:413:32:43

The Cabinet is expected to meet

in the next fortnight to discuss

3:32:433:32:46

Britain's future relationship

with the EU.

3:32:463:32:47

Officials in Gaza say four people

have died and 160 are injured

3:32:473:32:50

following air strikes on Hamas

military positions by

3:32:503:32:52

Israel in the Gaza Strip.

3:32:523:32:53

The strikes were in retaliation

for Palestinian rocket

3:32:533:32:55

attacks on southern Israel.

3:32:553:32:56

Palestinians and Israeli security

forces have clashed in the West Bank

3:32:563:32:59

since President Trump recognised

Jerusalem as Israel's

3:32:593:33:01

capital on Wednesday.

3:33:013:33:02

Yesterday, the US Ambassador,

Nikki Haley, defended Donald Trump's

3:33:023:33:04

comments and accused the UN of bias

against Israel.

3:33:043:33:14

The wintry weather looks set

to continue with Met Office warnings

3:33:163:33:19

in place for large parts of the UK.

3:33:193:33:21

More snow and freezing temperatures

are forecast for northern

3:33:213:33:23

and eastern regions into tomorrow.

3:33:233:33:24

Yesterday, commuters faced problems

on the roads and railways

3:33:243:33:27

and hundreds of properties remain

without power in the West Midlands.

3:33:273:33:29

We'll have a weather

forecast and a few minutes.

3:33:293:33:31

Firefighters in southern California

are continuing to battle wildfires,

3:33:313:33:33

which have destroyed

hundreds of homes.

3:33:333:33:35

More than 200,000 people have

already fled the area and many more

3:33:353:33:38

are preparing to evacuate.

3:33:383:33:39

President Trump has declared a state

of emergency as the fires

3:33:393:33:41

continue to spread.

3:33:413:33:52

Those are the main stories. Don't

forget that Stav will have the

3:33:533:34:00

weather later. Good morning, Mike.

Frozen pitches, I shall we will get

3:34:003:34:15

some of those. That's right. It's

possible that some of the Premier

3:34:153:34:25

League matches could be off

tomorrow, but they do have on the

3:34:253:34:29

pitch heating. Let's look at the

cricket.

Ben Duckett was training in

3:34:293:34:40

Perth and he had a chance to play in

the warm up against Cricket

3:34:403:34:48

Australia in 11, but he has been

dropped and now we know. There was

3:34:483:34:54

an incident in a bar in Perth which

has echoes of what they had -- of

3:34:543:35:01

what happened at the beginning of

this tool. With -- tour with Johnny

3:35:013:35:10

Bairstow. It happened on Thursday

night after a curfew had been

3:35:103:35:19

lifted. On the night it was lifted,

there was another incident in a bar

3:35:193:35:25

in Perth. The timing of this latest

incident is seen as embarrassing.

3:35:253:35:36

Then Duckett is training with the

Lions squad. He was expected to play

3:35:363:35:41

in the warm up match against

Australia, but he was replaced at

3:35:413:35:46

short notice. We wondered why am it

is because he is facing an ECB

3:35:463:35:51

enquiry into an incident in a bar in

Perth on Thursday night. It is

3:35:513:35:55

understood that that the police

weren't involved, no members of the

3:35:553:36:08

public were involved, but he has

been suspended, pending this

3:36:083:36:13

disciplinary enquiry. It will raise

more questions about the behaviour

3:36:133:36:16

of England's players on this tour.

Staggeringly, this incident happened

3:36:163:36:23

on the first night the players were

really allowed out after a midnight

3:36:233:36:28

curfew had been lifted and that

curfew was imposed after

3:36:283:36:31

wicketkeeper Johnny Bairstow, who

was involved in an incident in a bar

3:36:313:36:39

in Perth last month, there was also

the ongoing issue of Ben Stokes, and

3:36:393:36:44

we're waiting to find out if he will

face charges over an incident

3:36:443:36:48

outside nightclub in Bristol. This

disciplinary action after everything

3:36:483:36:54

that has happened with England is

the last thing they need.

We are

3:36:543:36:59

expecting an England press

conference in around ten minutes

3:36:593:37:04

time, so I will bring you that on

BBC News. We will find out what

3:37:043:37:11

Trevor Davis has to say. He was

furious after the Johnny Bairstow

3:37:113:37:16

incident.

3:37:163:37:23

On the pitch, opener

Keaton Jennings, has made a case

3:37:233:37:26

for picking him next week,

by scoring 80, and so too has

3:37:263:37:28

Tom Curran , not out 73 and he's

helped edge England into a good

3:37:283:37:32

position in this two

day match, batting

3:37:323:37:33

first they are 313-8.

3:37:333:37:34

All eyes on Manchester and

Merseyside tomorrow for the derbies

3:37:343:37:37

but this lunchtime it is East

versus west London.

3:37:373:37:39

West Ham versus Chelsea.

3:37:393:37:40

The hammers are in the bottom three

and looking for first

3:37:403:37:43

win under David Moyes but despite

their position, he thinks he is

3:37:433:37:46

starting to make his

mark on his new squad.

3:37:463:37:56

I didn't want to get too carried

away but I have to say the players

3:37:573:38:01

have got really good.

3:38:013:38:02

They have take on board everything

3:38:023:38:03

with asked of them.

3:38:033:38:04

They are doing the work

and right from the start, I

3:38:043:38:07

said they will have to do the work

if they want to play.

3:38:073:38:10

Hopefully they are all doing that.

3:38:103:38:20

I was saying how aid in Flint's

celebration was... Do it again. He

3:38:383:38:46

is walking along. This is how he was

celebrating his goal. He did his

3:38:463:39:00

jumping eyebrows, but he changed it.

It gets a bit messy, don't try this

3:39:003:39:04

at home. There we go. Aiden Flint,

scoring last night the winner. I was

3:39:043:39:13

not expecting that. That is just

silly. He can't do that on the

3:39:133:39:23

pitch? He can do in the training

room.

3:39:233:39:34

It's a bright outlook

for Ronnie O'Sullivan whatever

3:39:343:39:35

happens in the snooker today.

3:39:353:39:37

The Rocket will play

Stephen Maguire in the semi-finals,

3:39:373:39:39

after beating Martin Gould 6-3,

while Shaun Murphy will play

3:39:393:39:43

Ryan Day in the other semi

and whatever happens in O'Sullivan's

3:39:433:39:46

match, he feels he can't lose.

3:39:463:39:47

It was win-win because I thought,

if they get beaten, at least I get

3:39:473:39:51

home to dinner.

3:39:513:39:52

And if I win I have

another day here.

3:39:523:39:54

I have to have a win-win.

3:39:543:39:55

At this stage of the game...

3:39:553:40:05

On the places around here that do

dinner?

3:40:093:40:12

There are quite a few places around

here that will do dinner for you.

3:40:123:40:15

Yes, but I would like

to see my missus.

3:40:153:40:17

I decided a while ago,

I like to do my own thing.

3:40:173:40:20

Whatever happens in the game

is great, I pick and choose

3:40:203:40:23

what I want to do.

3:40:233:40:24

I think my happiness comes in doing

other things away from snooker.

3:40:243:40:29

In 8 weeks Lizzie Yarnold,

will try to become the first British

3:40:293:40:32

athlete to retain a winter olympic

title,

3:40:323:40:34

but the season, is not going to plan

for the skeleton bob slider.

3:40:343:40:37

Yarnold won the gold in Sochi 4

years ago, but yesterday,

3:40:373:40:40

falling snow hampered her,

and she finished 13th place,

3:40:403:40:42

at the latest World Cup event

at Wintersberg, in Germany.

3:40:423:40:44

"What can you do in a snow

storm she tweeted."

3:40:443:40:47

Jumping fences and riding

through fire mean their skills

3:40:473:40:49

are arguably even more extreme

than the likes of AP

3:40:493:40:51

McCoy and Nick Skelton.

3:40:513:40:52

Now the Met's mounted police

are gearing up to show

3:40:523:40:55

off their stuff at the Horse

of the Year Show, which takes place

3:40:553:40:58

this week in London.

3:40:583:40:59

I joined them in training to find

out how these skills help them

3:40:593:41:02

prepare for being on the beat

in London.

3:41:023:41:08

They are the heavyweights

of the equestrian world,

3:41:083:41:10

with some of the bravest riders.

3:41:103:41:12

Despite the size and the weight

of these beasts, it is all

3:41:123:41:14

about the most delicate position

and accuracy, as they jump

3:41:143:41:17

through fire and even manage

to remove some of their uniform -

3:41:173:41:21

and the saddle, and stirrups.

3:41:213:41:24

But this isn't just about showcasing

their skills this week.

3:41:243:41:27

The mounted police use this

training to help them

3:41:273:41:29

prepare for their main job,

and whatever they might face

3:41:293:41:32

on the streets of London.

3:41:323:41:37

We are cops on horses,

police officers on horses.

3:41:373:41:39

These horses are all

operational horses.

3:41:393:41:40

They patrol the streets

of London daily.

3:41:403:41:42

This ride we are doing,

what you see today, it's

3:41:423:41:44

all about training and developing

the officers, and developing

3:41:443:41:48

the horses, so that we can take

those skills out onto the street.

3:41:483:41:53

In a public order situation,

like a riot, they say that one

3:41:533:41:56

mounted officer can do the job

of ten on foot.

3:41:563:42:00

I saw how crucial these

training sessions are for

3:42:003:42:02

when things don't go to plan.

3:42:023:42:07

You have to be quite

robust as a rider.

3:42:073:42:12

You can have situations,

not that many years ago,

3:42:123:42:14

like Tottenham, you have vehicles

and buildings burning.

3:42:143:42:16

A horse reacts adversely to that.

3:42:163:42:22

So this sort of thing

is great for their training.

3:42:223:42:25

It's about trust and confidence.

3:42:253:42:27

The first mounted police were around

150 years before the first

3:42:273:42:29

pictures in the 1920s,

and over the following decades,

3:42:293:42:32

they became famous

for their musical rides.

3:42:323:42:39

NEWSREEL: This is a trial

of precision and grace,

3:42:393:42:41

where the policemen can show

off their equestrian skills.

3:42:413:42:43

Since 2014 there has been

an increase in the number

3:42:433:42:46

of mounted police again,

following a study by a university

3:42:463:42:51

which showed that the value

of the horses was icebreakers -

3:42:513:42:54

not just in public order situations

but in community policing as well.

3:42:543:42:57

You are six times more likely

to interact and chat to a police

3:42:573:43:02

Since 2014 there has been

an increase in the number

3:43:023:43:05

of mounted police again,

following a study by a university

3:43:053:43:07

which showed that the value

of the horses was icebreakers -

3:43:073:43:10

not just in public order situations

but in community policing as well.

3:43:103:43:13

You are six times more likely

to interact and chat to a police

3:43:133:43:16

officer if they are on a horse

than if they are just on foot.

3:43:163:43:19

Of course, it's all

to do with the horse.

3:43:193:43:21

I think a personable

horse helps a bit.

3:43:213:43:23

You're much more

approachable on a horse.

3:43:233:43:25

I found the difference, initially,

when I joined the mounted branch,

3:43:253:43:28

I couldn't believe how many people

stopped and wanted to speak to you.

3:43:283:43:31

If you go to an estate,

you will get a crowd around you,

3:43:313:43:34

just purely to pat the horse.

3:43:343:43:35

Before they know it,

they're talking to a police officer.

3:43:353:43:38

This is where it all begins.

3:43:383:43:39

Lots of the policemen who join

the mounted force have not

3:43:393:43:42

been on a horse before

they start training.

3:43:423:43:44

16 weeks later, the trust

between police officer and horse

3:43:443:43:46

is so great that they will even run

through walls together.

3:43:463:43:49

There's so much I can do on a horse.

3:43:493:43:51

But this gives me a taste

of what it is like.

3:43:513:43:54

Jumping the fences,

taking off their jackets,

3:43:543:43:55

and having the trust to power

through the final wall.

3:43:553:44:05

I think you did well. Where's

Charlie? He has gone outside. He's

3:44:173:44:28

going to be the thing about prepping

your car for winter. See you later.

3:44:283:44:44

I welcome the prospect of moving

ahead to the next phase to talk

3:44:593:45:03

about trade and security and to

discuss the positive and ambitious

3:45:033:45:08

future relationship that is in all

of our interests.

Since the Brexit

3:45:083:45:12

referendum, a year and a half has

passed. So much time has been

3:45:123:45:19

devoted to the easier part of the

task and now to negotiate a

3:45:193:45:24

transition arrangement and a

framework for our future

3:45:243:45:27

relationship, we have less than a

year.

That is what is happening in

3:45:273:45:35

the future and negotiations will

continue into phase two. I am joined

3:45:353:45:42

by Ian and Nigel Baxter. They both

used to work in the freight

3:45:423:45:46

industry. The familiar outlook on

business, but even though you are

3:45:463:45:53

brothers, you have different views

on Brexit. Who is remain? Ian? Yes.

3:45:533:46:02

What we don't want to do is go into

the reasons of four and again. Phase

3:46:023:46:14

one seems to be over over Pence. Are

you encouraged by this latest move?

3:46:143:46:21

Absolutely. Theresa May has finally

face the realities of Brexit. We

3:46:213:46:29

have a deal on citizens rights, and

the money side of things. We can't

3:46:293:46:37

just leave without an arrangement.

We are at the point where there will

3:46:373:46:42

be a pragmatic solution to these

issues.

We have to accept the

3:46:423:46:48

decision of the will of the people

and you are embracing the process?

3:46:483:46:53

Embracing it, but let us see where

it goes. We have the charge what the

3:46:533:46:57

deal looks like at the end of it and

if it is in our interest.

Nigel,

3:46:573:47:04

this is what you wanted. He wanted

Britain to leave the EU.

Is it going

3:47:043:47:09

how you expected? I've been

disappointed with the progress we

3:47:093:47:13

have made up until now and I have

been very frustrated by the

3:47:133:47:21

disharmony throughout the

Conservative Party and British

3:47:213:47:24

politics as a whole. I hoped that

Britain would come together having

3:47:243:47:28

made a decision and we will put a

stronger voice really in Europe. We

3:47:283:47:34

have looked disjointed. That said,

we are making progress now which is

3:47:343:47:39

to be welcomed. There are bits of it

that I've perhaps would have

3:47:393:47:42

preferred to have seen to be less

complicated, but I'm happy we're

3:47:423:47:49

moving forward.

As business owners,

what do want now?

I work in European

3:47:493:47:57

freight and it's important that we

have pretty much the same method of

3:47:573:48:00

trading with Europe in the future

that we have today. So we do need

3:48:003:48:06

that close alignment between the UK

and the European Union. We just

3:48:063:48:09

can't leave with no deal. There will

be no way of operating between the

3:48:093:48:13

UK and Europe. If we lead the

financial market, our financial

3:48:133:48:22

services market will be crucified

overnight. We need a new

3:48:223:48:27

arrangement, special partnership,

that gives us many of the benefits

3:48:273:48:29

we have in the past, accepting the

fact that we have decided to leave

3:48:293:48:35

and I qualify that by saying at the

end we will have to take a judgment

3:48:353:48:39

in Parliament as to whether we are

happy with the deal. In principle we

3:48:393:48:43

are leaving, but if we moved too far

away from the European Union are

3:48:433:48:48

businesses and jobs will suffer.

How

do you feel about that because you

3:48:483:48:53

are keen to move away from the

European Union?

I am keen to see

3:48:533:48:57

Britain with a -- as a sovereign

country. A free trade agreement is

3:48:573:49:08

paramount and if we can align

ourselves alongside the European

3:49:083:49:11

Union and work with them with strong

cooperation, I will be satisfied.

It

3:49:113:49:19

has life in the Baxter household

calmed down now the decision has

3:49:193:49:25

been made?

We have disagreed, Ian

and I. There is a lot of mileage

3:49:253:49:38

left in this.

We have always argued

about different things, but we do it

3:49:383:49:43

in a friendly way and ultimately we

come together as a family. It's

3:49:433:49:48

Christmas. Where going to share food

and drink over the weekend.

As my

3:49:483:49:51

mother says, disagree agreeably.

Nigel, Ian, thank you very much for

3:49:513:49:58

talking to us. Charlie is outside

and we will talk to him in a moment.

3:49:583:50:06

Stav, Charlie needs a scarf this

morning, doesn't he?

3:50:063:50:09

Jini needs a whole lot. It is cold.

Further snow showers over Scotland.

3:50:153:50:24

These are the pictures that have

been coming in. Snow also in

3:50:243:50:29

Shropshire and parts of Northern

Ireland. Road conditions will be

3:50:293:50:33

treacherous weather has been snow.

There will be ice, so watch out for

3:50:333:50:40

that. Snow showers across northern

Scotland, north-west England and

3:50:403:50:47

Northern Ireland. Elsewhere, a fine

and dry afternoon. It will stay

3:50:473:50:50

sunny for most of us. A really cold

day, but at least the winds will not

3:50:503:50:57

be as strong as yesterday. Snow

showers continuing across some

3:50:573:51:01

northern and western areas, but we

are concerned about the rain pushing

3:51:013:51:06

in from the south-west. As it bumps

into the cold air, northern England

3:51:063:51:11

will turn to heavy snow. The Met

office have an amber be prepared

3:51:113:51:17

warning for this. We could see

between ten and 20 centimetres. That

3:51:173:51:23

is a lot of snow for the UK.

Treacherous conditions on the road,

3:51:233:51:28

you will need to keep checking the

weather forecast if you need to head

3:51:283:51:32

out. The snow will ease down,

turning back the rain and milder air

3:51:323:51:37

pushes in from the south. Another

hazard into the afternoon with

3:51:373:51:41

severe gales and blustery showers.

Eight or 9 degrees, much colder

3:51:413:51:50

further north. For Scotland and

Northern Ireland, a fine drive day.

3:51:503:51:56

The low-pressure clears and the

storm that will batter parts of

3:51:563:52:00

France could bring disruption to the

south of the UK, particularly south,

3:52:003:52:06

south-eastern parts. It could be wet

and windy, but elsewhere, lots of

3:52:063:52:13

sunshine a very cold. Things calmed

down on Tuesday with the

3:52:133:52:18

low-pressure moving away. Dry, sunny

and cold for most of us. With the

3:52:183:52:22

wintry weather and snow in the

forecast, highway officials are

3:52:223:52:27

urging people to check road

conditions. It's also worth checking

3:52:273:52:31

your car, prepping it for this cold

weather. I'll hand you back to

3:52:313:52:36

Charlie who has headed outside to

brave the cold.

3:52:363:52:41

They have sent me outdoors. This is

sleep and it's very cold. A lot of

3:52:453:52:54

places are struggling with low

temperatures. That is a new survey

3:52:543:53:00

out today talking about how poorly

we think about what we do in our

3:53:003:53:06

cars and how prepared we are. Let us

be to Sabrina Webb. You have been

3:53:063:53:11

looking at what people get up to in

winter in relation to prepare

3:53:113:53:15

requests were icy conditions.

Our

research shows that about a quarter

3:53:153:53:25

of motorists don't slow down deep

enough distance between them and the

3:53:253:53:28

vehicle in front of them. It's

important to de-ice your vehicle

3:53:283:53:34

properly. All the windows and wing

mirrors. Any snow on roof should be

3:53:343:53:41

removed. Don't leave your car

unattended when it is warming up. If

3:53:413:53:48

you do, it could invalidate any

insurance claims.

There are

3:53:483:53:53

insurance implications around a lot

of those.

If you leave your car

3:53:533:53:57

unattended, it's likely it might not

be covered.

Let's have a closer

3:53:573:54:08

look. We have a park here. Patrick

Reilly, a motor recovery operative,

3:54:083:54:21

fax or coming down. Let's talk

through some practical tips. Do you

3:54:213:54:25

want to stop at the front of the car

first and we will follow you around.

3:54:253:54:31

It's icy, what do you look out for.

Make sure the screens are clear and

3:54:313:54:36

you can see where you are going.

You

have a cover on here, but a lot of

3:54:363:54:44

people haven't got one or haven't

thought about it or don't think it's

3:54:443:54:48

necessary. If you don't have one and

you are all iced up, what do you do?

3:54:483:54:54

Get a brush or a plastic shovel and

clear your screen. A credit card?

3:54:543:55:03

No, it's too small and you might

break your credit card.

That is the

3:55:033:55:08

kind of thing that you could do, but

prepare red mess is the point.

3:55:083:55:18

You are one of these people who are

super prepared a new house staff in

3:55:213:55:34

your boot.

We do with people who

have broken down following a crash

3:55:343:55:40

of the core malfunction.

So would

you put your shopping? If everything

3:55:403:55:54

is around, there is room.

A folding

shovel, first Ed Cape, screen wash,

3:55:543:56:04

spare bits and gloves.

Stay warm and

dry. You even have food.

Is that

3:56:043:56:11

your packed lunch? It is.

My wife

prepared it for me earlier.

Would

3:56:113:56:18

you normally carry that around? If I

am going a long distance I would. If

3:56:183:56:24

you get stuck in a car with no

engine, you have no heating and you

3:56:243:56:29

will get cold very quickly and you

have to prepare for it.

It's not the

3:56:293:56:33

most serious issue of the day, but

what will be the choice of sandwich

3:56:333:56:36

or item to take in the event of

being caught in an icy situation?

3:56:363:56:46

Ham and tomato, definitely. There

you go. Thank you very much. You

3:56:463:56:58

will be cheese and pickle, wouldn't

you, Charlie? Every time. Every

3:56:583:57:02

time. I know him well. Thank you

very much. We are nearly at the end

3:57:023:57:10

of the programme, we have, well I

don't know if it is a treat, but we

3:57:103:57:19

are all being encouraged to sing a

little bit more.

3:57:193:57:25

Whether it's Christmas carols

round the fire or welcoming

3:57:253:57:27

in the New Year with a hearty

rendition of Auld Lang Syne,

3:57:273:57:30

the festive season is a time

when even the most reluctant

3:57:303:57:32

performer might well

give singing a whirl!

3:57:323:57:34

All next week, we'll be

investigating this in more detail

3:57:343:57:37

and we'll be joining Dan,

Lou, Mike and Steph to perform

3:57:373:57:40

in a concert on Wednesday night.

3:57:403:57:41

So as preparation, we've called

on some famous faces

3:57:413:57:45

SINGING WARM-UP NOISES.

3:57:453:57:46

Why is Lou's deeper than mine?

3:57:463:57:48

Ahhh.

3:57:483:57:49

Ahhh.

3:57:493:57:50

You can't ahhh, do that?

3:57:503:57:51

Mmm, ahh.

3:57:513:57:52

Ah no, vibration when you go up.

3:57:523:57:54

What are the dos and don'ts?

3:57:543:57:55

Well, if you are doing

a little gospel music,

3:57:553:57:57

one thing is to make sure you have,

you keep a rhythm in your body.

3:57:573:58:01

HE SINGS A SCALE.

3:58:013:58:02

Can do you do that?

3:58:023:58:03

HE SINGS A SCALE.

3:58:033:58:04

Mmmmmmmm.

3:58:043:58:05

Ahhhhhhh.

3:58:053:58:06

And just keep the vibration going.

3:58:063:58:13

We'll do it together.

3:58:133:58:15

Mmmmmmmmm.

3:58:153:58:15

Ahhhhhhhh.

3:58:153:58:17

I've got the vibration.

3:58:173:58:18

# Bless that wonderful

name of Jesus.

3:58:183:58:19

# Bless that wonderful name #.

3:58:193:58:25

I mean come on, Charlie, no one,

you're not going to lose your job.

3:58:253:58:28

No one expects you to be

Pavarotti up there.

3:58:283:58:31

# Here it is, Merry Christmas,

everybody's having fun #.

3:58:313:58:33

Put some move into it.

3:58:333:58:34

# Look to the future now,

it's only just begun...#

3:58:343:58:44

Gave you a hint. We will be singing

with the Manchester inspirational

3:58:553:59:03

Gospel choir at Bridgewater
