Hello. Good morning.

0:00:110:00:12

This is Breakfast, with Dan Walker

and Louise Minchin.

0:00:120:00:14

Oxfam comes under increasing

pressure, as the charity's bosses

0:00:140:00:17

try to convince government ministers

they should keep millions of pounds

0:00:170:00:20

of public funding.

0:00:200:00:22

The aid agency will have to say

what it knew about allegations

0:00:220:00:26

of sexual misconduct by some

of its staff in Haiti and what it's

0:00:260:00:29

doing to stop it happening again.

0:00:290:00:37

Good morning.

0:00:420:00:44

It's Monday the 12th of February.

0:00:440:00:45

Also this morning:

0:00:450:00:52

Oh, something just fell.

0:00:520:00:53

Three British tourists who died

in a helicopter crash

0:00:530:00:56

in the Grand Canyon

are named by US police.

0:00:560:00:58

Three other Britons were injured.

0:00:580:01:00

Details of Prince Harry

and Meghan Markle's

0:01:000:01:02

wedding are announced.

0:01:020:01:02

A midday ceremony means it's

unlikely to clash with the FA

0:01:020:01:05

Cup final.

0:01:050:01:10

Good morning.

0:01:100:01:12

An inquiry is being launched

into the imminent collapse

0:01:120:01:14

of the East Coast rail franchise

which connects London King's Cross

0:01:140:01:17

with Edinburgh and carries nearly 38

million passengers a year.

0:01:170:01:20

I'll be finding out what's

gone wrong and what it

0:01:200:01:22

means for passengers.

0:01:220:01:23

Good morning.

0:01:230:01:24

In sport, "absolutely brutal" is how

the conditions in Pyeongchang

0:01:240:01:26

have been described.

0:01:260:01:27

Most of the snowboarders fell

in the Winter Olympics slopestyle,

0:01:270:01:30

knocked off course by strong winds.

0:01:300:01:32

Joanna Lumley, host of this

year's BAFTA Awards,

0:01:320:01:34

tells Naga how the Me Too

and Times Up movements are changing

0:01:340:01:37

the world of film and entertainment.

0:01:370:01:45

I hope this opens windows and floods

light into every part of the

0:01:450:01:49

industry and all industries.

0:01:490:01:51

And Matt's admiring

the snowdrops at RHS Wisley.

0:01:510:01:53

And Matt's admiring

the snowdrops at RHS Wisley.

0:01:530:01:54

Good morning. Snowdrops appearing.

0:01:540:02:06

Widespread frost this morning across

the UK. More sunshine, lighter

0:02:060:02:11

winds, and fewer snow showers

compared to yesterday. Excellent,

0:02:110:02:14

and wearing gloves as well.

0:02:140:02:20

Good morning.

0:02:200:02:21

First, our main story.

0:02:210:02:22

Senior officials at Oxfam

will today try to convince

0:02:220:02:24

the International Development

Secretary that they should

0:02:240:02:26

keep their millions of pounds a year

in government funding

0:02:260:02:29

despite the revelation that aid

workers used prostitutes in Haiti

0:02:290:02:32

after the devastating

earthquake there.

0:02:320:02:33

The charity's been accused

of concealing the full findings

0:02:330:02:35

of an investigation in 2011

which resulted in seven

0:02:350:02:38

sackings and resignations.

0:02:380:02:39

Oxfam denies claims of a cover-up.

0:02:390:02:40

Our diplomatic correspondent,

James Landale, reports.

0:02:400:02:47

The allegations of sexual misconduct

by Oxfam aid workers in Haiti

0:02:470:02:55

in 2011 have threatened not just

the charity's reputation,

0:02:580:03:01

but also the £32 million it gets

each year from the government.

0:03:010:03:04

The International Development

Secretary, Penny Mordaunt,

0:03:040:03:06

has threatened to withhold the cash,

unless Oxfam shows the moral

0:03:060:03:09

leadership she thinks it's lacked

in the way its handled

0:03:090:03:12

the scandal thus far.

0:03:120:03:13

The charity has been accused

of covering up the full scale

0:03:130:03:16

of the allegations, that

includes staff holding

0:03:160:03:18

parties with prostitutes.

0:03:180:03:18

Today, Ms Mordaunt will meet senior

figures from the charity and ask

0:03:180:03:22

them to hand over everything

they know about past

0:03:220:03:24

and current abuses.

0:03:240:03:26

I'm affording them the opportunity

to tell me in person what they did

0:03:260:03:30

after these events, and I'm

going to be looking to see

0:03:300:03:35

if they are displaying the moral

leadership that I think

0:03:350:03:38

they need to now.

0:03:380:03:39

Ms Mordaunt wants to know more

about the concerns staff had

0:03:390:03:42

about the recruitment

of workers in Haiti,

0:03:420:03:44

and she wants to know

what Oxfam is doing to stop it

0:03:440:03:47

ever happening again.

0:03:470:03:49

Ms Mordaunt would also meet

the Charity Commission to discuss

0:03:490:03:51

what more can be done to regulate

non-governmental organisations.

0:03:510:03:56

Oxfam has apologised and says it

will take further action to improve

0:03:560:04:00

the safeguarding, vetting

and recruitment of staff.

0:04:000:04:02

James Landale, BBC News.

0:04:020:04:05

After 7am this morning,

we'll be speaking to the boss

0:04:050:04:08

of Save the Children,

another charity who faces questions

0:04:080:04:10

over allegations they investigated

staff over claims of sexual

0:04:100:04:12

misconduct.

0:04:120:04:20

Three British tourists have been

killed in a helicopter crash

0:04:240:04:27

in the United States.

0:04:270:04:28

It happened on a sightseeing trip

in the Grand Canyon.

0:04:280:04:31

They've been named by police

in Arizona as 27-year-old,

0:04:310:04:33

Becky Dobson, Jason Hill,

who was 32, and 30-year-old,

0:04:330:04:35

Stuart Hill.

0:04:350:04:36

Three other British nationals

and the pilot were injured.

0:04:360:04:41

Our first responders had a 20 minute

hike, 20 minute hike, to get to the

0:04:410:04:45

scene. They were right on... We were

notified of the crash at 540, and

0:04:450:04:52

first responders were on the scene

within the first 30 minutes. And

0:04:520:04:56

first responders were on the scene

within the first 30 minutes. And we

0:04:560:04:56

attribute that quick response to

what help save lives.

-- helped.

0:04:560:05:06

Russian investigators are searching

fields near Moscow for clues to find

0:05:060:05:09

out why a passenger plane crashed,

killing all 71 people on board.

0:05:090:05:12

The Saratov Airlines jet went down

just a few minutes after taking

0:05:120:05:15

off yesterday afternoon.

0:05:150:05:16

Officials say they are

considering weather conditions,

0:05:160:05:18

human error and technical failure

as possible causes but they did not

0:05:180:05:21

mention the possibility

of terrorism.

0:05:210:05:23

Theresa May and the Irish Prime

Minister, Leo Varadkar,

0:05:230:05:25

are to visit Belfast

today for talks with

0:05:250:05:27

Northern Ireland's main parties.

0:05:270:05:29

There are growing indications

that the Democratic Unionist Party

0:05:290:05:31

and Sinn Fein may be close to a deal

to restore devolved government.

0:05:310:05:35

Let's speak to our political

correspondent, Ben Wright,

0:05:350:05:37

who's in Westminster.

0:05:370:05:43

This has gone on for so many months.

What is the latest?

13 months.

0:05:430:05:50

January last year is when the DUP

Sinn Fein government in Belfast

0:05:500:05:57

imploded among a public spending

scandal. There was a deep rift among

0:05:570:06:03

the two parties preventing a

succession of talks making any

0:06:030:06:06

progress in the months since then.

Things have split between them,

0:06:060:06:15

including same-sex marriage and

enshrining language. Talks have gone

0:06:150:06:19

nowhere. There is hope they could be

on the verge of a breakthrough.

0:06:190:06:24

Theresa May and Leo Varadkar, they

would not be going to Belfast today

0:06:240:06:29

if they did not think an agreement

was in reach. It is in the interest

0:06:290:06:34

of both sides to get it done. London

does not want direct control over

0:06:340:06:39

Northern Ireland. They want the

power-sharing agreement back up and

0:06:390:06:43

running. It feels like that could be

getting close.

OK, well, we will

0:06:430:06:49

see. Thank you very much.

0:06:490:06:51

Parents should take their children

to see a pharmacist if they only

0:06:510:06:54

have a minor illness.

0:06:540:06:55

That's the message of

a new health campaign.

0:06:550:06:57

NHS England says easily treated

conditions are adding

0:06:570:06:59

to the pressure on GP surgeries

and Accident and Emergency

0:06:590:07:02

departments, as our

health correspondent,

0:07:020:07:04

James Gallagher, reports.

0:07:040:07:04

Morning.

0:07:040:07:05

How can I help?

0:07:050:07:06

I'd like some advice

on my daughter, please.

0:07:060:07:10

When the kids are ill

and you need medical advice,

0:07:100:07:12

do you think of the pharmacy?

0:07:120:07:15

This NHS campaign says

tummy troubles, teething,

0:07:150:07:18

and coughs are all best dealt

with by a high street pharmacist.

0:07:180:07:21

It's part of a drive to relieve

pressure on doctors' time.

0:07:210:07:26

Figures released as part

of the Stay Well Pharmacy campaign

0:07:260:07:28

estimates around 18 million GP

appointments each year and more

0:07:280:07:32

than 2 million A&E visits

are for patients that could be

0:07:320:07:35

treated with over-the-counter

medication.

0:07:350:07:36

It says the appointments cost

the NHS more than £850

0:07:360:07:39

million each year.

0:07:390:07:42

Pharmacists are highly trained

healthcare professionals.

0:07:420:07:46

They train for five years in the use

of medicines and how to get the best

0:07:460:07:49

out of using medicines,

but also in how to treat minor

0:07:490:07:52

illness, minor disease,

and, really importantly,

0:07:520:08:00

how to understand when perhaps it's

more serious and people need

0:08:010:08:04

to seek extra help.

0:08:040:08:05

I feel so dreadful!

0:08:050:08:09

The Patients Association said

the campaign had some merits,

0:08:090:08:12

but said anyone with a health

concern should feel able to turn

0:08:120:08:15

to their GP.

0:08:150:08:16

The pharmacy is just

around the corner.

0:08:160:08:18

I can go and see a fully trained

healthcare professional,

0:08:180:08:21

no appointment needed!

0:08:210:08:21

James Gallagher, BBC News.

0:08:210:08:26

South Africa's governing party,

the ANC, says the fate

0:08:260:08:28

of President Zuma will be

decided within 24 hours.

0:08:280:08:31

There is mounting pressure

for him to stand down,

0:08:310:08:33

following allegations of corruption.

0:08:330:08:34

Speaking at a rally in Cape Town,

the leader of the ANC,

0:08:340:08:38

Cyril Ramaphosa said the key aim

of any transition of power

0:08:380:08:41

was to unite South Africans.

0:08:410:08:44

London City Airport has been closed

until further notice

0:08:440:08:46

after the discovery of an unexploded

Second World War bomb.

0:08:460:08:49

The device was found

in the River Thames.

0:08:490:08:51

Passengers are being urged to check

with their airlines before

0:08:510:08:54

travelling this morning.

0:08:540:09:02

Kensington Palace has announced more

details of the wedding

0:09:050:09:08

of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle

at Windsor Castle.

0:09:080:09:10

The service will start at midday,

meaning there's good news

0:09:100:09:13

for football fans as it is unlikely

to clash with the FA Cup final.

0:09:130:09:17

Our royal correspondent,

Nicholas Witchell, reports.

0:09:170:09:25

They are said to be closely involved

in the arrangements for their

0:09:260:09:29

wedding which is now a little less

than 14 weeks away. It will take

0:09:290:09:35

place in the historic setting of St

Georges chapel within Windsor Castle

0:09:350:09:38

on Saturday the 19th of May. The

service will begin at midday with

0:09:380:09:41

the Dean of Windsor officiating.

Room within the chapel is limited,

0:09:410:09:50

with space for around 800 guests. At

one o'clock, the couple, married, as

0:09:500:09:55

they will be by then, will set off

in a carriage procession back to the

0:09:550:10:02

castle for a reception in Saint

Georges Hall. The carriage

0:10:020:10:08

procession, they hope, will fulfil

the pledge they made at the time of

0:10:080:10:11

their engagement to make it possible

for members of the public to feel

0:10:110:10:15

part of the occasion. Nicholas

Witchell, BBC News.

0:10:150:10:21

This is not important, what I am

going to say about the FA Cup.

0:10:210:10:30

Somebody will be on that day, it

won't be me.

BBC One at 12 o'clock.

0:10:300:10:37

That is our spot! You cannot take

our spot!

Apparently they have. We

0:10:370:10:46

will come on later. Who knows.

0:10:460:10:54

Have a look at this amazing image.

0:10:540:10:57

It's of a single glowing atom

of the metal strontium and it's won

0:10:570:11:00

first prize in a science

photography competition.

0:11:000:11:02

Can you see that?

Right in the

middle. Amazing.

0:11:020:11:07

The image, taken by David Nadlinger

was captured through the window

0:11:070:11:10

of a vacuum chamber

in an Oxford University laboratory,

0:11:100:11:13

using an ordinary digital camera.

0:11:130:11:14

Two metal electrodes placed two

millimetres apart held the strontium

0:11:140:11:17

as it was illuminated

with a blue-coloured laser.

0:11:170:11:25

It looks like a tiny little star.

It

is not very often you are

0:11:270:11:37

speechless, but that is one time.

Good morning. We have to start

0:11:370:11:45

somewhere. Pyeongchang. Did you

watch any?

Quite a lot.

So much of

0:11:450:11:53

it is so brave.

People are saying we

should send over an average Joe to

0:11:530:12:02

try all the sports to give us

something to measure against.

0:12:020:12:08

Perhaps Mike Bushell. The triathlon

yesterday. Cross-country skiing,

0:12:080:12:16

mixed with shooting! Why not? Why

would you not? Totally bonkers!

0:12:160:12:22

Absolutely. More than that, if you

are waking up this morning to frosty

0:12:220:12:29

and snowy weather, spare a thought

for them over there. Incredible

0:12:290:12:32

conditions.

0:12:320:12:34

Britain's Aimee Fuller said

the conditions were "absolutely

0:12:340:12:36

brutal" for the slopestyle

snowboard competition.

0:12:360:12:38

Qualifying was cancelled yesterday,

but if anything, the winds

0:12:380:12:40

were worse today in the final.

0:12:400:12:42

Fuller finished 17th.

0:12:420:12:43

Gold went to Sochi

champion, Jamie Anderson.

0:12:430:12:51

More Six nations

action this weekend.

0:12:580:13:01

Yesterday, former captain,

Greg Laidlaw, kicked Scotland

0:13:010:13:04

to victory in their

match against France.

0:13:040:13:08

He kicked 22 points for his side,

as they came from behind

0:13:080:13:11

to win at Murrayfield.

0:13:110:13:12

Next for Scotland is England,

in two weeks' time.

0:13:120:13:15

Newcaslte United have

won their first Premier League

0:13:150:13:17

home game since October,

and it was Manchester United

0:13:170:13:19

who were on the receiving end.

0:13:190:13:21

Matt Ritchie scored

the only goal of the game.

0:13:210:13:23

And Rangers smashed six past

Ayr United as they made it

0:13:230:13:26

into the quarter-finals

of the Scottish Cup,

0:13:260:13:28

striker, Alferdo Morelos,

hitting two of them on his return

0:13:280:13:31

to the side.

0:13:310:13:32

He was very happy with that. A

horrible miss. Right in front of all

0:13:320:13:36

of the Ayr United fans.

We will be

live in Pyeongchang through the

0:13:360:13:41

morning. And hang about for the

papers.

It is totally addictive,

0:13:410:13:46

watching it. I cannot turn it off.

I

am lacking sleep.

It is called here

0:13:460:13:54

as well. -- cold.

0:13:540:13:56

Here's Matt with a look at this

morning's weather at RHS Wisley.

0:13:560:13:59

Good morning. We are in amongst the

snowdrops. A sign of positivity that

0:13:590:14:06

spring is never far away. The RHS is

saying over the past decade, the

0:14:060:14:13

snowdrops have appeared earlier and

earlier. Is in this winter, which

0:14:130:14:22

has been average, snowdrops made

early appearances. Sometimes as

0:14:220:14:25

early as December. They may be the

sign that spring is not far around

0:14:250:14:34

the corner. I do not think we are

done with winter yet. Certainly this

0:14:340:14:39

morning, it is a cold, cold start.

The forecasts. A frosty start across

0:14:390:14:46

the country this morning. A day of

sunshine and if you showers. Not as

0:14:460:14:52

many as three the weekend. Light

winds. Not as chilly. The UK. The

0:14:520:15:00

best of the sunshine, central and

eastern areas. Snow showers across

0:15:000:15:06

south-western Scotland and Northern

Ireland and parts of northern

0:15:060:15:08

England. A covering of snow during

the morning rush-hour. Taking a look

0:15:080:15:15

to the south-west and Wales, showers

will be a mixture of rain, sleet,

0:15:150:15:19

and hail. Not too many in the

forecast. Dry and sunny weather in

0:15:190:15:25

between. Some slippery conditions.

Temperatures up a little bit on

0:15:250:15:34

yesterday given the fact winds are

lighter. A chilly day by and large.

0:15:340:15:38

Not a bad start for many of you.

Frost will form the night. A weather

0:15:380:15:44

front working in from the west.

Strengthening winds. Snowfall in

0:15:440:15:51

Northern Ireland and eventually into

parts of Scotland and northern

0:15:510:15:54

England. Not just on the hills, we

could see it at lower levels as

0:15:540:15:59

well. That could cause problems on

Tuesday morning rush-hour in central

0:15:590:16:02

and southern Scotland and the final

of England in particular. -- far

0:16:020:16:08

north. Sleet and snow over higher

ground. Especially Wales to be

0:16:080:16:12

pushing east through the day with

strong to gale force winds. How far

0:16:120:16:18

that goes, it is uncertain at the

moment. We will brighten up with

0:16:180:16:23

sunshine in the afternoon. Snow

flurries in western Scotland. The

0:16:230:16:27

windfall in lighter compared to the

morning. A fairly cool day by and

0:16:270:16:32

large. Tuesday night. A risk of

frost and ice around. Wednesday,

0:16:320:16:38

another weather system pushing its

way in. Not as potent as that.

0:16:380:16:42

Tomorrow, snow is limited to the

higher ground of Scotland and

0:16:420:16:48

Ireland. Milder air. Outbreaks of

rain and drizzle. Hill snow for many

0:16:480:16:52

of us. Strong to gale force winds to

the 11 degrees in the far

0:16:520:16:56

south-west. That clears through

Wednesday night. Patchy frost on

0:16:560:17:03

Thursday. Cloud across southern and

eastern parts of the country, but

0:17:030:17:06

many parts are back to sunshine once

again. Slightly lighter winds to be

0:17:060:17:11

back the cold air by Thursday with

snow showers around, especially in

0:17:110:17:16

the north of the country.

0:17:160:17:28

I spotted lots of snowdrops. It is

hard to see them. Holly is staying

0:17:300:17:36

around. Should go with a front page

of the Telegraph? Boris Johnson. He

0:17:360:17:42

is on a tour of Asia. He has been

visiting a burnt out village in

0:17:420:17:48

Burma. Lots of the papers talking

about this. This is about Oxfam.

0:17:480:17:57

Ministers have launched an

investigation. Foreign aid officials

0:17:570:18:01

brushed off allegations of child

abuse. We are talking about that

0:18:010:18:06

through the programme. And take your

sick children to a pharmacy, not a

0:18:060:18:10

GP.

The front page of the Guardian,

the Oxfam crisis is the main story.

0:18:100:18:22

In Cape Town, South Africa, the

ruling party can force President

0:18:220:18:26

Jacob Zuma to step down this week.

The Daily Mail is talking about

0:18:260:18:33

Oxfam. The Daily Mirror have a story

there about botched operations

0:18:330:18:39

abroad. The NHS spending £30 million

in the last five years fixing

0:18:390:18:46

botched plastic surgery done on the

cheap abroad.

Some tapes from Ian

0:18:460:18:50

Huntley. They've got access to these

recordings. In the Daily Express,

0:18:500:18:55

icy storms.

0:18:550:19:01

icy storms. Deep snow. Are you OK?

We have a silent sneeze. We had that

0:19:020:19:12

guy who was a sneeze expert, you got

to let it out.

It's not nice for

0:19:120:19:16

everybody waking up and having their

Breakfast.

Always better out than

0:19:160:19:20

in.

There is a rumour doing the

rounds that Tesco might be opening a

0:19:200:19:25

Budget store to

0:19:250:19:32

Budget store to rival Aldi and Lidl.

They are working on a secret plan

0:19:320:19:35

for a new secret discount grocery

chain. Tesco is still the biggest

0:19:350:19:42

supermarket in the UK. It has a huge

share of the grocery sector but the

0:19:420:19:48

other two have been slowly chipping

away at their market share. It would

0:19:480:19:54

be interesting to see what happened.

They can neither confirm nor deny it

0:19:540:20:00

has happened. Interesting when we

get that kind of thing happening.

A

0:20:000:20:08

lot of the papers focusing on this

this morning. He has been one of the

0:20:080:20:14

shocks so far. He won gold in the

snowboard slope style and he is just

0:20:140:20:20

17 years old.

You did brilliantly.

It's like he can literally fly. At

0:20:200:20:27

17, he looks about 14 or 15. He just

looked so uncomfortable. He didn't

0:20:270:20:33

know if he was supposed to wave,

shake hands. We did it all

0:20:330:20:38

simultaneously. He has the best

name.

0:20:380:20:47

name. His name is Red Jerrod. A lot

of Liverpool fans getting excited. I

0:20:470:20:53

hope he is a Liverpool fan.

We were

talking about job titles. This is

0:20:530:21:02

from the Telegraph.

0:21:020:21:08

from the Telegraph. What is a

hygiene technician?

A cleaner.

0:21:080:21:16

hygiene technician?

A cleaner.

What

is the media distribution opposite?

0:21:160:21:20

A newspaper person. In the Victorian

era, they also had quite interesting

0:21:200:21:27

job titles.

You can guess what these

are. What is a manciple? No idea.

0:21:270:21:34

It's a servant. The next one, what

is a couranteer?

This is a gel in

0:21:340:21:42

the cash journalist.

In the last

one, I love this one,

0:21:420:21:52

one, I love this one, what is a

Professor of the Natatorial Art?

0:21:530:21:56

What is it going to be?

0:21:560:22:03

What is it going to be? It is a

swimming instructor.

What a

0:22:030:22:05

ridiculous title.

0:22:050:22:11

ridiculous title.

My wine that I

like is a person who makes washable

0:22:110:22:15

weeks. Absolutely -- my one.

Absolutely brilliant. I need to

0:22:150:22:22

invest.

0:22:220:22:24

We often hear about children's

academic performance

0:22:240:22:26

at school being measured.

0:22:260:22:27

What you might not realise is that,

in England and Wales,

0:22:270:22:30

their weight is also under review.

0:22:300:22:32

In a bid to tackle childhood

obesity, Public Health England

0:22:320:22:35

weighs every child as they join

and leave primary school.

0:22:350:22:37

But statistics don't

tell the whole story -

0:22:370:22:40

and when one mother received

a letter to say that her cricket-mad

0:22:400:22:43

daughter was "very overweight",

she chose to speak out.

0:22:430:22:51

This is 11-year-old Daisy from

Christchurch. She plays cricket the

0:22:530:22:57

Dorset County youth team and is

pretty active but a so-called fax

0:22:570:23:01

letter was sent home scene based on

how age, height and weight, Daisy

0:23:010:23:06

was very overweight.

Soon after

that, I noticed that she was

0:23:060:23:11

skipping Breakfast and she didn't

want to play cricket. She thought

0:23:110:23:14

she was too large.

I lost my

confidence and I didn't really want

0:23:140:23:21

to play anything.

Like cricket. The

letters are sent as part of a scheme

0:23:210:23:30

run by Public Health England

tracking the measurements of all

0:23:300:23:33

primary school children.

If we

weren't measuring children in the

0:23:330:23:38

way that we currently do, the first

thing is we wouldn't know the scale

0:23:380:23:42

of the problem that we currently

have, we wouldn't know that 20% of

0:23:420:23:46

children leaving primary school are

classified as obese and winner the

0:23:460:23:51

problems of those children as they

grow up.

But leading sport scientist

0:23:510:23:56

Doctor Gavin Sandakan is

unconvinced.

One thing we do know

0:23:560:24:01

about seeing Daisy as she is very

active and of course, muscle weighs

0:24:010:24:05

a lot more than that does and this

BMI measurement doesn't take into

0:24:050:24:10

account how muscular she is. At the

best, a waste of time and money and

0:24:100:24:14

money and at the worst, it's the

labelling and a form of body

0:24:140:24:18

fascism.

Daisy and her family agree.

I want Public Health England to stop

0:24:180:24:24

waiting and measuring our children

and stop wasting taxpayers money and

0:24:240:24:28

taking away of our confidence.

Children shouldn't be worrying about

0:24:280:24:34

their weight. They've got more

important stuff to think about.

0:24:340:24:38

Rather than sending a letter, it

would be better to do more sports.

0:24:380:24:47

We will be talking about that a

little bit later. That was John

0:24:470:24:51

Cuthill reporting.

0:24:510:24:52

You can see more on this tonight

on BBC Inside Out on BBC1

0:24:520:24:55

in the south at 7.30pm

and everywhere else

0:24:550:24:58

on the iPlayer afterwards.

0:24:580:24:59

Also, if you have had one of those

letters about your children, let us

0:24:590:25:04

know what you think. Do you think

it's a good idea? Is it damaging?

So

0:25:040:25:09

many questions. We will also be

speaking to Jill and Daisy Elizabeth

0:25:090:25:15

later or more of a discussion.

Still

to come on the programme, would you

0:25:150:25:24

take your child to a pharmacist

rather than A&E for illness?

I went

0:25:240:25:36

to a pharmacist last year itchy IMA

solved it.

I just don't know where

0:25:360:25:41

to go with that story.

I had an

itchy eye and it was swelling up and

0:25:410:25:46

rather than bulk billing, she was

amazing.

Magic? Not magic.

0:25:460:25:56

bit milder as we head towards the

end of the week.

0:29:170:29:20

More travel news on BBC Radio

London. Back in half an hour.

0:29:200:29:27

Hello.

0:29:270:29:29

This is Breakfast with Dan Walker

and Louise Minchin.

0:29:290:29:33

Welcome back.

0:29:330:29:34

We'll bring you all the latest news

and sport in a moment,

0:29:340:29:37

but also on Breakfast this morning.

0:29:370:29:39

As fresh reports emerge of charities

investigating staff over sexual

0:29:390:29:42

misconduct, we'll speak to the head

of Save the Children,

0:29:420:29:44

one of the agencies

caught up in the scandal.

0:29:440:29:47

Also this morning, it's been a tough

brutal start to competition this

0:29:470:29:50

morning, we'll have all the latest

winter Olympics action.

0:29:500:29:58

My job is like a headmistress. I say

off you go...

0:29:590:30:04

She'll be hoping she can keep

order at the BAFTA's!

0:30:040:30:07

Joanna Lumley speaks to Naga ahead

of her hosting duties about taking

0:30:070:30:10

over from Stephen Fry and her

new film, "Finding Your Feet."

0:30:100:30:17

Good morning.

0:30:170:30:18

Here's a summary of today's main

stories from BBC News.

0:30:180:30:26

Senior officials at Oxfam

will today try to convince

0:30:270:30:29

the International Development

Secretary that they should

0:30:290:30:31

keep their millions of pounds a year

in government funding

0:30:310:30:34

despite the revelation that aid

workers used prostitutes in Haiti

0:30:340:30:36

after the devastating

earthquake there.

0:30:360:30:38

The charity's been accused

of concealing the full findings

0:30:380:30:40

of an investigation in 2011

which resulted in seven

0:30:400:30:43

sackings and resignations.

0:30:430:30:44

Oxfam denies claims of a cover-up.

0:30:440:30:45

Three British tourists have been

killed in a helicopter crash

0:30:450:30:48

in the United States.

0:30:480:30:49

It happened on a sightseeing trip

in the Grand Canyon.

0:30:490:30:52

They've been named by police

in Arizona as 27-year-old,

0:30:520:30:54

Becky Dobson, Jason Hill,

who was 32, and 30-year-old,

0:30:540:30:57

Stuart Hill.

0:30:570:30:57

Three other British nationals

and the pilot were injured.

0:30:570:31:03

Our first responders

had a 20 minute hike,

0:31:030:31:05

20 minute hike, to get to the scene.

0:31:050:31:08

They were right on...

0:31:080:31:09

We were notified of the crash

at 540, and first responders

0:31:090:31:12

were on the scene within

the first 30 minutes.

0:31:120:31:14

And we attribute that quick response

to what helped save lives.

0:31:140:31:22

Russian investigators are searching

fields near Moscow to try to find

0:31:310:31:36

out what caused a crash killed in

all people on board. It went down

0:31:360:31:40

just a few minutes after taking off

yesterday afternoon. They are

0:31:400:31:44

considering mechanical issues, human

failure, I did not mention the

0:31:440:31:50

possibility of terrorism.

0:31:500:31:53

Theresa May and the Irish Prime

Minister, Leo Varadkar,

0:31:530:31:55

are to visit Belfast

today for talks with

0:31:550:31:57

Northern Ireland's main parties.

0:31:570:31:59

There are growing indications a deal

is close that would see

0:31:590:32:02

devolved government restored.

0:32:020:32:02

Northern Ireland has been run

by civil servants since the power

0:32:020:32:05

sharing agreement between Sinn Fein

and the DUP collapsed last January.

0:32:050:32:11

Parents should take their children

to see a pharmacist if they only

0:32:110:32:14

have a minor illness.

0:32:140:32:15

That's the message of

a new health campaign.

0:32:150:32:17

NHS England says easily treated

conditions are adding

0:32:170:32:19

to the pressure on GP surgeries

and Accident and Emergency

0:32:190:32:22

departments and going to

the pharmacy could save the health

0:32:220:32:25

service £850 million a year.

0:32:250:32:31

London City Airport has been closed

until further notice

0:32:310:32:33

after the discovery of an unexploded

Second World War bomb.

0:32:330:32:36

The device was found

in the River Thames.

0:32:360:32:38

Passengers are being urged to check

with their airlines before

0:32:380:32:41

travelling this morning.

0:32:410:32:49

Kensington Palace has announced more

details about the wedding

0:32:540:32:56

of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle

at Windsor Castle on the nineteenth

0:32:560:32:59

of May.

0:32:590:33:00

The service, in St George's Chapel,

will begin at midday,

0:33:000:33:03

which means it is unlikely to clash

with the FA Cup Final.

0:33:030:33:06

It's been confirmed

that the Archbishop of Canterbury

0:33:060:33:08

will marry the couple,

and that the Dean of Windsor

0:33:080:33:11

will conduct the service.

0:33:110:33:12

800 guests will be there.

0:33:120:33:13

The newlyweds will then embark

on a short carriage procession

0:33:130:33:16

around Windsor at one o'clock.

0:33:160:33:22

You are up-to-date with the latest

news. However many times you mention

0:33:220:33:27

your programme, I do not think they

will move the wedding.

You have to

0:33:270:33:31

consider these things.

When you got

married...

You plan your day is very

0:33:310:33:37

carefully and look through the

sporting calendar and say you cannot

0:33:370:33:40

do that one, you cannot do that one,

it has to be that once a bite that

0:33:400:33:44

is how you do it.

0:33:440:33:51

is how you do it. -- has to be that

one.

You should put that in a letter

0:33:510:33:54

and send it off to the palace and

see what they think. I cannot

0:33:540:33:58

believe Meghan Markle did not think

of that. Flabbergasted. I am sure

0:33:580:34:04

they will have a lovely day.

Not so

lovely in South Korea. The wind has

0:34:040:34:10

been incredible.

-16 degrees. I know

it is the winter Olympics, it is

0:34:100:34:17

going to be cold. It looks stunning.

But it can get very cold. But

0:34:170:34:29

this... It is taking it to another

extreme. Some of the events have

0:34:290:34:32

been cancelled and delayed over the

weekend. Very difficult. It makes

0:34:320:34:40

for awkward discussions to be had,

whether or not some of the events

0:34:400:34:45

can be continued. On a world stage

like this, it is not easy.

You want

0:34:450:34:51

to do your best.

Exactly. It has

been an incredible weekend of sport.

0:34:510:34:56

We will look at some of the action.

Those incredible winds on day three

0:34:560:35:03

have interrupted the action.

0:35:030:35:07

Embracing the elements is the way of

these athletes. Even they have their

0:35:070:35:12

limits. The wind blows in from

Siberia, bringing chill and danger.

0:35:120:35:17

We are already 30 minutes delayed.

It puts the women's slope style

0:35:170:35:24

final in doubt. But after waiting an

hour, conditions are cleared. The

0:35:240:35:31

wind had only subsided, not gone

away.

My goodness.

This was

0:35:310:35:39

Slovakia's Claudia. She was OK,

remarkably, and went against.

We are

0:35:390:35:45

absolutely on the limit of this

contest.

For Aimie Fuller of

0:35:450:35:53

Britain, this was an unexpected run

at the medals. With one run left she

0:35:530:35:57

tried to take on the wind.

She has

got huge.

-- win. It is out to be

0:35:570:36:04

brutal. It is not how I planned and

how I visualised for years of prep

0:36:040:36:08

work to go today. I do not think it

was a true show of women's female

0:36:080:36:14

slope style. That is a shame for the

sport. Amid the dusts and balls,

0:36:140:36:22

Jimmy Anderson took the right amount

of risk. -- gusts. A final, clouded

0:36:220:36:29

by controversy.

Things are more

serene inside the ice rink. Know

0:36:290:36:35

whether problems here. The first

three days have seen the team

0:36:350:36:40

competition, with Canada looking for

gold with synchronised brilliance.

0:36:400:36:44

In these Games, you are offered up

against the elements. Turning danger

0:36:440:36:49

into an style. -- often. Kozinski,

BBC News. -- Joe Lynskey.

0:36:490:37:00

He called it serene, but to me, it

is so dangerous, with those blades.

0:37:000:37:05

But it is so beautiful.

And back

home.

0:37:050:37:09

And back home.

0:37:090:37:10

Greg Laidlaw was the main man

for Scotland as they beat France

0:37:100:37:13

32-26 at Murrayfield

in the Six Nations.

0:37:130:37:15

He scored 22 of their points,

including six penalties,

0:37:150:37:18

as they got their first win

of this year's competition.

0:37:180:37:20

They face reigning champions England

at Murrayfield next,

0:37:200:37:23

in two weeks' time.

0:37:230:37:24

Ireland claimed their first win

of this year's Women's Six Nations,

0:37:240:37:27

beating Italy by 21 points to eight.

0:37:270:37:29

After a failing to score a single

point in their first game,

0:37:290:37:32

against France, the Irish

were dominant from the start,

0:37:320:37:34

scoring three tries,

including this, from winger,

0:37:340:37:36

Megan Williams.

0:37:360:37:44

Newcastle hadn't won a home game in

the Premier League since October,

0:37:480:37:51

but they put that right yesterday,

and it was Manchester United who

0:37:510:37:54

suffered. Matt Ritchie scored the

only goal of the game to lift his

0:37:540:37:58

side two points clear of the

relegation zone, and leave United 16

0:37:580:38:01

points behind leaders, Manchester

City.

0:38:010:38:04

We could be hit ten hours and we

would not score a goal. I think it

0:38:040:38:08

is fair to say that Newcastle had a

clean sheet. They scored. They said

0:38:080:38:20

they would defend with everything.

0:38:200:38:22

Rangers and Aberdeen completed

the line up for the quarter-finals

0:38:220:38:24

of the Scottish Cup.

0:38:240:38:26

Aberdeen beat Dundee United 4-2,

while Rangers looked

0:38:260:38:28

in trouble against Ayr.

0:38:280:38:29

They were already a goal down

when Alfredo Morelos missed

0:38:290:38:32

an absolute sitter.

0:38:320:38:32

But he did redeem himself,

scoring twice in a 6-1 victory.

0:38:320:38:39

Now, who remembers Big

Break from the 1990s?

0:38:390:38:41

Well, snooker has returned

to it the fun side with

0:38:410:38:46

the Shoot Out Tournament,

where the players have ten minutes

0:38:460:38:49

to complete a frame.

0:38:490:38:56

And we are looking forward to

incredible pictures from the winter

0:38:560:39:00

Olympics.

You are watching every

moment.

0:39:000:39:07

moment.

Some of the sports are easy

to work out, but sometimes you need

0:39:070:39:13

to find explanations.

I am into

curling.

I am not yet.

You will be

0:39:130:39:21

soon.

0:39:210:39:28

soon.

Good morning. You are watching

Breakfast.

0:39:280:39:31

It was a routine flight on a modern

plane with an experienced pilot.

0:39:310:39:35

But yesterday a Russian airliner

crashed shortly after taking off

0:39:350:39:37

from Moscow Airport,

killing all 71 passengers and crew.

0:39:370:39:40

Investigators said they were looking

into various possible causes

0:39:400:39:42

including weather conditions,

human error and technical failure.

0:39:420:39:44

David Learmount is an

aviation journalist.

0:39:440:39:46

He joins us from our

London newsroom.

0:39:460:39:49

Good morning. Thank you for your

time. There is limited evidence so

0:39:490:39:54

far, but from what you have seen and

read, what is your interpretation of

0:39:540:39:59

what took place?

I think you have

just said it. You have to keep your

0:39:590:40:04

mind open on this one. There are

several indicators. It is a new

0:40:040:40:08

aeroplane. But it is a modern

aeroplane, made in Russia. It is...

0:40:080:40:14

Umm... It is very well... The

wreckage is very, very well

0:40:140:40:18

scattered. So that means... And we

also know that it came down

0:40:180:40:25

extremely fast. In the last stages

of its descent, it was coming down

0:40:250:40:29

very, very fast. Umm... The most

likely thing at this point, because

0:40:290:40:36

the wreckage is so scattered, it

suggests that the aircraft broke up

0:40:360:40:39

in the air. Now, the obvious thing

to look out would be sabotaged, a

0:40:390:40:47

bomb on board, terrorism, it is a

possibility. Otherwise, we are

0:40:470:40:55

looking at things which are really

rather more unlikely. Weather has

0:40:550:40:58

been mentioned, yes. It is a typical

Russian winter. But Russian pilots

0:40:580:41:06

and aeroplanes are used to Russian

winter. I would not put that on my

0:41:060:41:10

list. I mean, we have got ghosts

from the past like the Germanwings a

0:41:100:41:17

cup of tea go to the I do not think

there is direct evidence for it an

0:41:170:41:23

attempt of pilots oversight. --I do

not think. -- pilot suicide.

We

0:41:230:41:31

could see how bad the weather was.

We have seen some pilots banned due

0:41:310:41:41

to cockpit security. Could that be a

potential line of investigation as

0:41:410:41:47

well?

Umm, I mean, I don't think we

can rule anything out. In 2004, out

0:41:470:41:56

of the same Russian, Moscow, error

port, Domodedovo Airport, two planes

0:41:560:42:03

took off for different destination.

-- airport. Both of them blew up in

0:42:030:42:09

the sky because there was a hijacker

on board. Since that time,

0:42:090:42:12

Domodedovo Airport has improved its

security hugely. So, you know, it

0:42:120:42:21

would be surprising if add that

airports now you could get a bomb or

0:42:210:42:28

explosives through as an on board

passenger. -- at that airport. That

0:42:280:42:32

is what happened then. But, of

course, a couple of years ago, there

0:42:320:42:38

was a Russian aircraft blown out of

the sky over Sinai. That was a bomb

0:42:380:42:43

which got on it probably through

ground crew at the airport. So,

0:42:430:42:50

really, what we are looking at more

than anything else at the moment,

0:42:500:42:55

because there are still other

possibilities, it is this scattering

0:42:550:42:57

of the wreck it. And you have to be

careful with looking at nonaviation

0:42:570:43:03

people who are eyewitnesses saying

there was an explosion in the sky.

0:43:030:43:07

-- wreckage. Often the trauma of the

crash is enough to jerk the

0:43:070:43:14

imagination. But nonetheless, people

said it wrote up in the air.

Thank

0:43:140:43:19

you for that interesting

information. -- broke up in the air.

0:43:190:43:26

There were no air crashes last year.

There was also a crash in the Grand

0:43:260:43:37

Canyon which we will also bring it.

Good morning. It is pretty cold.

0:43:370:43:53

Yes, the sun rises over half an hour

away but it is a fine start here. We

0:43:540:44:03

are at RHS Wisley in Surrey. The

latter

0:44:030:44:11

latter name fur for snowdrops is

galanthis navalis which helps with

0:44:110:44:15

pollination, in reference to plants.

It is certainly a cold start this

0:44:150:44:25

morning. At the some of you, a cold,

frosty and icy start. Lots of dry

0:44:250:44:34

and sunny weather. Still a few snow

flurries here and there. We have

0:44:340:44:41

them in western Scotland, Northern

Ireland as well. And a few isolated

0:44:410:44:46

showers towards the south-west. It

will turn icy pretty quickly. We saw

0:44:460:44:55

showers last night. Many central and

eastern areas, having a dry and

0:44:550:44:59

sunny day. Southwest England and

Wales will see one or two showers.

0:44:590:45:06

Further north into northern England

and Scotland and Northern Ireland,

0:45:060:45:09

we will see snow, given a further

centimetre or two in places. Leading

0:45:090:45:15

up to a cold evening. Many places

today, from what we saw yesterday,

0:45:150:45:19

the wind is a little bit lighter. We

have the sunshine on you, it might

0:45:190:45:24

not be too bad. As we go into

tonight, frost will form very

0:45:240:45:30

quickly. We have got a weather front

pushing in from the West. Expect

0:45:300:45:35

some snow in Northern Ireland. By

the end of the night, the snow

0:45:350:45:41

becomes that bit more extensive.

Tomorrow morning, Arbeiter start to

0:45:410:45:47

the south and east. Elsewhere --

elsewhere, parts of seven --

0:45:470:45:53

southern and Central Scotland, a few

issues for the rush-hour. Rain

0:45:530:45:59

further south with a little bit of

sleet mixed in. It does clear off

0:45:590:46:05

its way eastwards. Brighter skies

into the West. It's going to be a

0:46:050:46:09

rather chilly feeling date. Some

pretty strong winds touching gale

0:46:090:46:13

force in places. That leads to frost

and ice to take us through the night

0:46:130:46:21

into Wednesday morning. Strong to

gale force winds. This time, snow

0:46:210:46:26

may be limited. Outbreaks of rain

coming and going through the day.

0:46:260:46:31

It's not going to be the best of

days on Wednesday. Temperatures will

0:46:310:46:36

be on the rise. 11 degrees towards

the south-west of the country. Then

0:46:360:46:44

through Wednesday into Thursday,

that weather system gets out of the

0:46:440:46:47

way. It might linger with cloud but

the most, back to sunny spells on

0:46:470:46:52

Thursday. A few snow showers around

but a lot of dry and bright weather

0:46:520:46:59

as well. Don't forget, you won't

have the wind quite as strong as we

0:46:590:47:04

will have seen them. It's still

going to be a bit chilly by the end

0:47:040:47:09

of the week. Nothing too untoward.

We got a bit of a cloudy day to come

0:47:090:47:15

on Wednesday. Some snow through

tomorrow morning. Some try and

0:47:150:47:19

bright weather to get out and enjoy.

0:47:190:47:21

An inquiry is being launched

into the imminent collapse

0:47:260:47:29

of the East Coast Rail franchise.

0:47:290:47:31

Steph has more on what's gone wrong

and what it means for passengers.

0:47:310:47:35

We're talking about the railway line

from London through to Edinburgh

0:47:350:47:38

and onto Aberdeen.

0:47:380:47:42

It's a line that has changed

hands a lot in recent

0:47:420:47:45

years and that is the problem.

0:47:450:47:50

For a long, time it was run by GNER.

0:47:500:47:54

But in 2007 it got into

financial difficulties

0:47:540:47:56

and the franchise to run the line

was handed to National Express.

0:47:560:48:01

Then at the height of

the financial crisis in 2009

0:48:010:48:04

there were more problems

and the service was re-nationalised

0:48:040:48:06

and put under the control

of a government backed operator.

0:48:060:48:13

Fast forward to 2015, the coalition

government reprivatised it.

0:48:130:48:21

This time handing the keys

to Virgin Trains East Coast

0:48:230:48:28

90% owned by Stagecoach and 10%

owned by Richard Branson's Virgin

0:48:280:48:31

Group.

0:48:310:48:33

The consortium paid over £3 billion

to operate the franchise until 2023.

0:48:330:48:36

But now they say they're

running out of money.

0:48:360:48:39

And that passenger numbers have been

much lower than predicted.

0:48:390:48:41

So what will it mean for passengers?

0:48:410:48:44

Tony Miles is from

Modern Railways Magazine.

0:48:440:48:49

When you hear all that about hammy

times has changed hands, what is

0:48:500:48:55

going on? Why is it such a problem?

It appears the most difficult thing

0:48:550:49:00

is predicting passenger numbers.

East -- each of those businesses

0:49:000:49:05

which is about to end have been

profitable businesses. The struggle

0:49:050:49:08

they are having to make the extra

premium and they have committed in

0:49:080:49:13

their bids. Part of that is you are

trying to predict what people will

0:49:130:49:16

do a lot -- on the long-distance

railway. That is difficult. There is

0:49:160:49:22

no big part of the Lok tin market.

It's not like a commuter railway.

0:49:220:49:29

The business market, the

long-distance market is vague and

0:49:290:49:32

it's not grown in the way that each

of the companies expected it to do.

0:49:320:49:40

Because of this, ministers are

saying this franchise could collapse

0:49:400:49:43

within a matter of months but what

does it mean?

Initially Stagecoach

0:49:430:49:48

has been propping up the business

and would put in about £200 million

0:49:480:49:52

of its money. They are not running

away from it initially. The most

0:49:520:49:58

important thing is, the trains will

never stop running. The government

0:49:580:50:03

has two options. It can transfer the

business back to a group of

0:50:030:50:07

companies which is appointed to take

over, which is operator last resort.

0:50:070:50:11

Or it is looking at whether they

would ask Stagecoach virgin to carry

0:50:110:50:18

on. That is quite keen. The team

that is running it has come top of

0:50:180:50:25

the national survey of satisfaction.

The actual company performance is

0:50:250:50:32

doing a fine job. It's the finances

behind it.

It's not something that

0:50:320:50:39

passengers to use that Hyam -- that

line

0:50:390:50:41

passengers to use that Hyam -- that

line would want.

There will always

0:50:410:50:44

be someone to step in and take over

if the business operating cannot

0:50:440:50:48

continue. The trains will still be

there on the day.

And is it likely

0:50:480:50:53

someone else will want to run it? As

you said, it is a profitable line.

0:50:530:51:01

There is a view the government is

finally waking up to the idea that

0:51:010:51:05

you don't let rail contracts that --

contracts on the promise of running

0:51:050:51:09

it. The new south-western railway

contract that started last August --

0:51:090:51:14

last August as breakpoints as to

whether promise should be rethought

0:51:140:51:19

and they are now looking at the

quality of promises. The re-electing

0:51:190:51:27

of it will be a different way of

looking at financial promises.

That

0:51:270:51:33

is it to me right now.

0:51:330:51:37

She's one of our best loved stars

whose been in everything

0:51:370:51:40

from Paddington 2 to

Absolutely Fabulous.

0:51:400:51:42

But on Sunday, Joanna Lumley

takes on a new role.

0:51:420:51:44

She's taking over from

Stephen Fry as the host

0:51:440:51:47

of the Bafta Film Awards.

0:51:470:51:48

Naga caught up with her to find out

how she was feeling ahead

0:51:480:51:52

of the big event.

0:51:520:51:57

Joanna Lumley, thank you so much

talking to us. To be here. A pledge

0:51:570:52:02

to have it.

How excited are you? So

excited and thrilled. It was such an

0:52:020:52:08

honour to be asked and I said yes

with a beating heart, rang up

0:52:080:52:12

Stephen Fry he was a friend of mine

anyway...

Thank you.

He said he was

0:52:120:52:18

thrilled and that nobody ever

complained, an awards ceremony is

0:52:180:52:23

too short. And the second thing is

to keep it tight and entertaining

0:52:230:52:28

and light. My job is just to be a

host of which is hello, welcome,

0:52:280:52:34

blah blah blah. And then you say and

to present the first award is...

0:52:340:52:39

Swap come to massive movie stars in

my job is like a headmistress. Off

0:52:390:52:44

you go, next category.

What are you

going to bring to it? What is that

0:52:440:52:50

Joanna Lumley touch?

I'm going to

bring address.

What colour? Black.

0:52:500:52:55

What do you think of the campaign to

wear black to stand up to inequality

0:52:550:53:00

and harassment.

It combines a whole

lot of things. In the Royal Albert

0:53:000:53:06

Hall, the 100 years that the

suffragettes are signs that things

0:53:060:53:10

so that people over 30 could get the

vote for the first time is that is

0:53:100:53:15

hugely powerful and strong and it

bounced on through people, women

0:53:150:53:19

being allowed to work in munitions

factories in the war and bouncing

0:53:190:53:23

off this, the times up thing. And I

hope this is opening windows and

0:53:230:53:28

flooding light into every part of

our industry and all all

0:53:280:53:32

professions. So that we can now look

forward into the outer world, the

0:53:320:53:36

greater world, to wider countries

and cultures, where women are

0:53:360:53:40

appallingly treated. Really abused

and marginalised. That great

0:53:400:53:51

strength, that men are looking

forward to the injuries to women in

0:53:510:53:56

the greater world. This is terrific.

How did your Internet date go at the

0:53:560:54:05

weekend?

I got more than I bargained

for. He showed up with his wife in

0:54:050:54:10

tow. It turns out I kicked kicked

swinging in the of swimming. It's a

0:54:100:54:17

lovely story, a late flowering love

story, an unexpected love story. A

0:54:170:54:23

family, an abrasive thing which is

resolved. All that is set against

0:54:230:54:29

the backdrop of a senior citizens

dance class. We have seen it on

0:54:290:54:33

strictly. The audiences watch it.

The people have been it, you've met

0:54:330:54:41

it, they are bewitched by dance.

Many older people will get out and

0:54:410:54:49

cure their loneliness and inability

by going to dance classes. I hope it

0:54:490:54:57

works because we all absolutely

adored it. We have been talent

0:54:570:55:02

spotted. We are going to Rome, city

of lovers. Would you be on the

0:55:020:55:07

dancefloor?

My won't dance. I would

have to dance with him.

That's an

0:55:070:55:11

idea. I dance but I don't go to many

dance parties.

I wish you all the

0:55:110:55:18

best for the Baftas.

Thank you

indeed. Thank you.

She is going to

0:55:180:55:25

be excellent at it.

0:55:250:55:26

The BAFTAs are on BBC One

this Sunday at 9pm.

0:55:260:55:32

A slightly longer version later.

0:55:320:55:35

Time now to get the news,

travel and weather where you are.

0:55:350:55:42

Like normally how you have a body in

you work out who they are and who

0:55:450:55:50

might want to kill them?

That's the procedure. If you say so.

0:55:500:55:55

This time, we don't know who is

meant to have been killed.

0:55:550:56:03

A race against time to find the

truth. We will speak to the stars of

0:56:030:56:11

the latest crime thriller

Collateral.

1:01:501:01:50

After clear skies during the night,

a frosty start to Monday morning.

1:01:501:01:56

Snow showers in the west, but also

icy. The full forecast in 15

1:01:561:02:05

minutes. Take care on the roads.

They will

1:02:051:02:09

minutes. Take care on the roads.

They will be

1:02:091:02:09

They will be slippery.

1:02:091:02:12

Good morning.

1:02:121:02:12

First, our main story.

1:02:121:02:13

Senior officials at Oxfam

will today try to convince

1:02:131:02:16

the International Development

Secretary that they should

1:02:161:02:18

keep their millions of pounds a year

in government funding

1:02:181:02:20

despite the revelation that aid

workers used prostitutes in Haiti

1:02:201:02:23

after the devastating

earthquake there.

1:02:231:02:24

The charity's been accused

of concealing the full findings

1:02:241:02:27

of an investigation in 2011

which resulted in seven

1:02:271:02:29

sackings and resignations.

1:02:291:02:30

Oxfam denies claims of a cover-up.

1:02:301:02:32

Our diplomatic correspondent,

James Landale, reports.

1:02:321:02:36

The allegations of sexual misconduct

by Oxfam aid workers in Haiti

1:02:361:02:39

in 2011 have threatened not just

the charity's reputation,

1:02:391:02:41

but also the £32 million it gets

each year from the government.

1:02:411:02:45

The International Development

Secretary, Penny Mordaunt,

1:02:451:02:46

has threatened to withhold the cash,

unless Oxfam shows the moral

1:02:461:02:49

leadership she thinks it's lacked

in the way its handled

1:02:491:02:52

the scandal thus far.

1:02:521:02:54

The charity has been accused

of covering up the full scale

1:02:541:02:57

of the allegations, that

includes staff holding

1:02:571:02:59

parties with prostitutes.

1:02:591:03:00

Today, Ms Mordaunt will meet senior

figures from the charity and ask

1:03:001:03:03

them to hand over everything

they know about past

1:03:031:03:05

and current abuses.

1:03:051:03:06

I'm affording them the opportunity

to tell me in person what they did

1:03:061:03:10

after these events, and I'm

going to be looking to see

1:03:101:03:13

if they are displaying the moral

leadership that I think

1:03:131:03:15

they need to now.

1:03:151:03:17

Ms Mordaunt wants to know more

about the concerns staff had

1:03:171:03:20

about the recruitment

of workers in Haiti,

1:03:201:03:21

and she wants to know

what Oxfam is doing to stop it

1:03:211:03:25

ever happening again.

1:03:251:03:26

Ms Mordaunt will also meet

the Charity Commission to discuss

1:03:261:03:28

what more can be done to regulate

non-governmental organisations.

1:03:281:03:31

Oxfam has apologised and says it

will take further action to improve

1:03:311:03:34

the safeguarding, vetting

and recruitment of staff.

1:03:341:03:36

James Landale, BBC News.

1:03:361:03:44

In a few moments' time, we'll be

speaking to the boss of Save the

1:04:021:04:05

Children, another charity who faces

questions over allegations they

1:04:051:04:08

investigated staff over claims of

sexual misconduct.

1:04:081:04:10

Three British tourists have been

killed in a helicopter crash

1:04:101:04:13

in the United States.

1:04:131:04:14

It happened while on a sightseeing

flight over the Grand Canyon.

1:04:141:04:17

Three other Britons,

and the pilot, were injured.

1:04:171:04:19

Our North America correspondent,

James Cook, reports.

1:04:191:04:22

The helicopter came down in rocky,

remote terrain, bursting into

1:04:221:04:28

flames. It appears the survivors

were able to get out despite

1:04:281:04:32

suffering serious injuries. But

three Britons on board died at the

1:04:321:04:37

scene. Becky Dobson, Jason Hill, and

Stuart Hill. For the survivors,

1:04:371:04:45

three young Britons in the pilot,

the ordeal was far from over. --.

1:04:451:04:54

Military personnel were flown in but

had to walk to the crash site using

1:04:541:04:58

night vision. It was more than eight

hours before the injured were flown

1:04:581:05:02

to hospital in Los Angeles.

We were

not able to extract anyone until the

1:05:021:05:10

morning. There were difficult

conditions. You need special

1:05:101:05:17

training and people.

It is not clear

what caused the crash which involved

1:05:171:05:22

a helicopter. The tour company says

it is the world's largest aerial

1:05:221:05:30

sightseeing outfits, flying 600,000

people a year. In 2001, six people

1:05:301:05:36

died when another of the firm's

helicopters crashed. The Foreign

1:05:361:05:41

Office says it is now providing

support to the British families of

1:05:411:05:45

this weekend's victims. James Cook,

BBC News, Los Angeles.

1:05:451:05:50

Russian investigators are searching

fields near Moscow for clues to find

1:05:501:05:53

out why a passenger plane crashed,

killing all 71 people on board.

1:05:531:05:56

The Saratov Airlines jet went down

just a few minutes after taking

1:05:561:06:00

off yesterday afternoon.

1:06:001:06:01

Officials say they are

considering weather conditions,

1:06:011:06:02

human error and technical failure

as possible causes but they did not

1:06:021:06:06

mention the possibility

of terrorism.

1:06:061:06:12

Theresa May and the Irish Prime

Minister, Leo Varadkar,

1:06:121:06:14

are to visit Belfast

today for talks with

1:06:141:06:16

Northern Ireland's main parties.

1:06:161:06:17

There are growing indications

that the Democratic Unionist Party

1:06:171:06:20

and Sinn Fein may be close to a deal

to restore devolved government.

1:06:201:06:23

Let's speak to our political

correspondent, Ben Wright,

1:06:231:06:26

who's in Westminster.

1:06:261:06:32

That is one element of the talk,

what else is on the table?

Restoring

1:06:321:06:40

power-sharing at storm wind is top

of the list. There has not been a

1:06:401:06:45

devolved government in Northern

Ireland since January last year. --

1:06:451:06:49

Stormont. That is when the

power-sharing relationship between

1:06:491:06:54

the DUP and Sinn Fein imploded.

There have been a number of issues

1:06:541:07:01

going from whether or not the Irish

language should have legal

1:07:011:07:05

protection in law, same-sex

marriage, many issues, with the two

1:07:051:07:09

parties in disagreement. The new

Northern Ireland Foreign Secretary,

1:07:091:07:14

only appointed at the end of last

year, has tried to put new momentum

1:07:141:07:19

in these talks. They may be on the

cusp of a breakthrough. Theresa May

1:07:191:07:25

going to Belfast, along with Leo

Varadkar, they would not do this if

1:07:251:07:29

they did not think they could make a

difference. Both Prime Minister's

1:07:291:07:32

want to get this devolved government

back up and running. Theresa May

1:07:321:07:39

especially with Brexit and

negotiations and

1:07:391:07:45

negotiations and sensitivities with

the Irish border. She does not want

1:07:461:07:49

direct control from Westminster,

which is a possibility if these

1:07:491:07:53

talks do not succeed.

1:07:531:07:56

Parents should take their children

to see a pharmacist if they only

1:07:561:07:59

have a minor illness.

1:07:591:08:00

That's the message of

a new health campaign.

1:08:001:08:02

NHS England says easily treated

conditions are adding

1:08:021:08:05

to the pressure on GP surgeries

and Accident and Emergency

1:08:051:08:07

departments, as our

health correspondent,

1:08:071:08:09

James Gallagher, reports.

1:08:091:08:17

London City Airport has been closed

until further notice

1:08:171:08:19

after the discovery of an unexploded

Second World War bomb.

1:08:191:08:22

The device was found

in the River Thames.

1:08:221:08:24

Passengers are being urged to check

with their airlines before

1:08:241:08:27

travelling this morning.

1:08:271:08:31

Kensington Palace has announced more

details of the wedding

1:08:311:08:34

of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle

at Windsor Castle.

1:08:341:08:36

The service will start at midday,

meaning there's good news

1:08:361:08:39

for football fans as it is unlikely

to clash with the FA Cup final.

1:08:391:08:43

Our royal correspondent,

Nicholas Witchell, reports.

1:08:431:08:44

They are said to be closely

involved in the arrangements

1:08:441:08:47

for their wedding, which is now

a little less than 14 weeks away.

1:08:471:08:51

As already announced,

it will take place in the historic

1:08:511:08:54

setting of St Georges Chapel

within Windsor Castle on Saturday

1:08:541:08:57

the 19th of May.

1:08:571:08:58

The service will begin

at midday with the Dean

1:08:581:09:06

of Windsor

1:09:131:09:14

officiating, and the Archbishop

of Canterbury, Justin Welby,

1:09:141:09:16

leading the service itself.

1:09:161:09:17

Room within the chapel is limited,

with space for around 800 guests.

1:09:171:09:20

At one o'clock, the couple, married,

as they will be by then,

1:09:201:09:24

will set off in a carriage

procession, and then a long walk

1:09:241:09:27

back to the castle for a reception

in Saint Georges Hall.

1:09:271:09:30

The carriage procession, they hope,

will fulfil the pledge they made

1:09:301:09:33

at the time of their engagement

to make it possible for members

1:09:331:09:36

of the public to feel

part of the occasion.

1:09:361:09:39

Nicholas Witchell, BBC News.

1:09:391:09:40

The sexual misconduct by Oxfam aid

workers in Haiti has threatened not

1:09:401:09:43

just the charity's reputation

and cash-flow, but also raises

1:09:431:09:45

questions over how the UK's £13

billion overseas aid

1:09:451:09:48

budget is spent.

1:09:481:09:49

There have been revelations

about other charities too.

1:09:491:09:51

Reports say Christian Aid,

Save the Children,

1:09:511:09:53

and the British Red Cross have

all investigated staff over

1:09:531:09:55

sexual misconduct allegations.

1:09:551:09:56

Kevin Watkins is the Chief Executive

of Save the Children,

1:09:561:09:59

and joins us from our London studio.

1:09:591:10:06

Good morning.

Good morning.

Thank

you for joining us. Could you give

1:10:061:10:12

us your views and comments and

confirm with us these reports, 31

1:10:121:10:15

allegations of sexual

1:10:151:10:23

allegations of sexual misconduct at

Save the Children in the past year.

1:10:231:10:26

Is that the case?

Let me start by

saying we are outraged at the

1:10:261:10:30

reports out of Haiti. The figure you

are citing is a figure we reported

1:10:301:10:34

on, that we publicly disclosed.

These were cases of sexual

1:10:341:10:37

harassment that we investigated, 31

cases. We acted on 16 of them and

1:10:371:10:42

handed the dossier on ten of them

over to legal authorities. Now, this

1:10:421:10:48

is an example of a system working.

This is us subjecting our

1:10:481:10:53

organisation to the greatest

possible scrutiny precisely in order

1:10:531:10:57

to protect these vulnerable women

and children that our staff are

1:10:571:11:02

working with on the front line in

Syria, in South Sudan, with Rohingya

1:11:021:11:07

refugees, in Cox's Bazar, and other

places.

Can you give us details of

1:11:071:11:12

the 16 people. Where they dismissed

as a result of this? What happened?

1:11:121:11:17

All 16 were dismissed. Ten of the

cases we regarded as sufficiently

1:11:171:11:23

serious to hand the dossier over to

legal authorities, either in the

1:11:231:11:27

country of which the offence took

place or to the host country.

What

1:11:271:11:31

happened with the ten tasers? Were

they prosecuted?

The ten cases we

1:11:311:11:38

handed over to legal authorities,

those investigations are ongoing by

1:11:381:11:43

legal authorities. We will certainly

provide all and any evidence legal

1:11:431:11:47

authorities require. What we have to

face up to see is that we have a

1:11:471:11:54

problem across institutions of

powerful men abusing their position.

1:11:541:11:59

We have a responsibility because of

the vulnerability of the people we

1:11:591:12:04

are working with. These are

people... I was in Cox's Bazar in

1:12:041:12:09

Bangladesh a few weeks ago, these

are people who have lost everything,

1:12:091:12:14

impoverished, traumatised. We need

to protect them from the predatory

1:12:141:12:18

people who will try to enter our

organisation. We have very tough

1:12:181:12:21

background checks. But we have to

come together as a sector to work

1:12:211:12:26

collectively to ensure that these

people do not get into our

1:12:261:12:29

organisations, but they do not get

access to these incredibly

1:12:291:12:32

vulnerable populations.

Are you

saying then that charities are being

1:12:321:12:37

targeted by predators?

Well, I think

many institutions are being targeted

1:12:371:12:42

by predators, and that includes us.

That is why we have introduced

1:12:421:12:46

incredible era bust background

checks. We have the same background

1:12:461:12:49

checks for humanitarian employment

that any teacher in the UK would

1:12:491:12:55

face. We have incredibly strong

whistleblowing in place. Were also

1:12:551:13:00

proposing that has a sector we

establish a registry of workers,

1:13:001:13:05

humanitarian workers. We introduce a

sort of passport system, if you

1:13:051:13:09

like. If there is any indication of

an offence, that passport will be

1:13:091:13:14

withdrawn. We have also set out

measures which we have put to the

1:13:141:13:19

department for International

Development of how we could come

1:13:191:13:21

together to make sure that we

support the victims, that we are

1:13:211:13:24

quickly and decisively acting in

these occasions, and we discharge

1:13:241:13:29

our responsibility to these people,

and to the UK public, and the UK

1:13:291:13:34

government which gives us the

finance that we need to make a

1:13:341:13:38

difference in their lives.

I want to

go back to something you talked

1:13:381:13:41

about, these vulnerable women and

children that charities work with.

1:13:411:13:45

Are you saying that they have been

victims in this?

Well, I think there

1:13:451:13:49

is no, there is absolute in question

there are risks. When risks arrive,

1:13:491:13:54

we have a child safeguarding team.

We have teams that will investigate

1:13:541:13:59

with proper rigour any complaint

that is made. And if we regard the

1:13:591:14:04

complaint as sufficiently serious,

it will be referred to serious

1:14:041:14:08

authorities. We will pass the

dossier to the police, we will

1:14:081:14:13

contact the Charity Commission and

provide full disclosure to them. We

1:14:131:14:16

are an organisation... We have over

70,000 staff working on 100

1:14:161:14:21

countries. -- 17,000. Many are,

effectively, they have no

1:14:211:14:27

government. These are areas

controlled by warlords, warring

1:14:271:14:31

factions. It is inevitable that

there are threats and risks facing

1:14:311:14:36

vulnerable people, and our staff...

You know, we lost four of my

1:14:361:14:40

colleagues in Afghanistan working on

the frontline trying to provide a

1:14:401:14:48

education to Pakistanis. These are

the people who reflect the real

1:14:481:14:55

values of my organisation and our

sector. I want to make sure we

1:14:551:14:59

project and respect their values.

One last question about...

1:14:591:15:05

Financially, I read concerned about

the impact this could have, both

1:15:051:15:10

from government funding and members

of the public?

I am absolute

1:15:101:15:14

confidence we have some of the

strongest most robust systems in

1:15:141:15:19

place that it is possible to design.

I am confident we are enforcing both

1:15:191:15:25

systems effectively. And I am also

confident the British public knows

1:15:251:15:31

how difficult this is. This is an

incredible it difficult thing to do.

1:15:311:15:34

We are trying to do the right thing,

fighting for children at the sharp

1:15:341:15:39

end of the opportunity divide in our

world. I think the public will look

1:15:391:15:43

at what we do, they will judge us on

our results. And our results include

1:15:431:15:48

reaching over 60 million children in

the last year alone.

Kevin Watkins,

1:15:481:15:52

thank you.

1:15:521:16:02

It's a bit chilly out there in

places which would you like to see a

1:16:021:16:07

beautiful sunrise? That is RHS

Wisley, when that has the weather.

1:16:071:16:13

Doesn't it look spectacular? A

beautiful start to the morning. Of

1:16:131:16:20

course, the earlier sunrise, it

means that spring is not too far

1:16:201:16:23

away. They've been peering across

the country. The RHS have been

1:16:231:16:31

telling us that snowdrops are

appearing earlier and earlier. They

1:16:311:16:37

never made their first appearance

since debris. Some varieties

1:16:371:16:44

appeared all the way back in

December. Even with the hint of

1:16:441:16:50

spring in the air, which are still

has us in its grips. A light start

1:16:501:16:56

are many but it is a frosty one.

We've seen some showers through the

1:16:561:17:01

night. The story of sunshine and

showers today. There could be a bit

1:17:011:17:08

of sleet and snow mixed in. We've

got that at the moment in parts of

1:17:081:17:12

Scotland, and Northern Ireland. Many

central and eastern areas start the

1:17:121:17:19

day dry with some sunshine. Lots of

sunshine to take a sober way through

1:17:191:17:24

the as well. Let's take a look at

the quick detail. Many areas staying

1:17:241:17:32

dry. Rain, sleet, hail showers. The

snow continues to get a few

1:17:321:17:43

centimetres here and there.

Temperatures still down in single

1:17:431:17:48

figures. Given the fact the winners

with a bit light than yesterday, it

1:17:481:17:54

might not be as chilly as it did.

Temperatures will drop away quite

1:17:541:17:59

quickly. The weather front is going

to push in. It will take us into

1:17:591:18:07

tomorrow morning. Even to lower

levels, Scotland and the far north

1:18:071:18:14

of England, we could see snow

causing problems for the morning

1:18:141:18:18

commute. Some parts of the high

ground of Scotland and northern

1:18:181:18:26

England. Frosty and bright.

Producing snow over the hills of the

1:18:261:18:35

north and even a few flakes mixed

in. There is going to be rain more

1:18:351:18:39

than anything else. Brightening up

through the afternoon. It should be

1:18:391:18:43

better into the day then we start.

Factoring in the wind, snow in

1:18:431:18:50

places. It's going to feel rather

cold. A frosty and icy night will

1:18:501:18:57

follow while we have a bit of

sunshine around the far south-east,

1:18:571:19:01

a lot of cloud on Wednesday. Strong

to gale force winds, maybe severe

1:19:011:19:07

gale force in places. Any slow

limited to the higher ground.

1:19:071:19:13

Temperatures up to about 11 degrees.

The temperatures drop a little bit

1:19:131:19:18

for Thursday. Overnight cloud clears

away. Sunshine back the many on

1:19:181:19:23

Thursday. There will be some snow

showers pushing back into the

1:19:231:19:28

north-west the UK. Temperatures down

a little bit on Wednesday that many

1:19:281:19:32

should see some sunshine once again.

A lovely, lovely start. When he got

1:19:321:19:40

clear skies to start the day, the

coldest part of the night, the

1:19:401:19:44

morning is half an hour after

sunrise. Still another 45 minutes to

1:19:441:19:49

go until you see those temperatures

rise.

1:19:491:19:52

go until you see those temperatures

rise.

There is nothing like being on

1:19:521:19:55

an outside broadcast. I did not know

that.

I just know it by bitter

1:19:551:20:04

experience.

1:20:041:20:07

We often hear about children's

academic performance

1:20:071:20:11

at school being measured.

1:20:111:20:12

What you might not realise is that,

in England and Wales,

1:20:121:20:15

their weight is also under review.

1:20:151:20:16

In a bid to tackle childhood

obesity, Public Health England

1:20:161:20:19

weighs every child as they join

and leave primary school.

1:20:191:20:22

But statistics don't

tell the whole story -

1:20:221:20:24

and when one mother received

a letter to say that her cricket-mad

1:20:241:20:27

daughter was "very overweight",

she chose to speak out.

1:20:271:20:30

Her name is Gill and she joins us

now, with her daughter Daisy.

1:20:301:20:37

Good morning to you. Thank you to

all of you for joining us. Tel is a

1:20:371:20:47

little bit about the letter, Gill.

It was addressed to you but you

1:20:471:20:52

chose to share it with Daisy.

It was

quite detailed, had a pie chart and

1:20:521:21:00

I could see her expression when she

done it so put it to one side and

1:21:001:21:04

said, that is a load of rubbish,

don't at it. I could tell she was

1:21:041:21:09

really upset by looking at it.

Daisy, talked to be about cricket.

1:21:091:21:16

You love cricket. Did this but are

put to a little bit? Why?

I felt

1:21:161:21:26

like I was not like fitting in.

Did

you stop playing cricket for a

1:21:261:21:32

while? I know you are good at

cricket in you love it. You are back

1:21:321:21:37

plating. That is really devastating

to hear. But that sort of letter has

1:21:371:21:43

that sort of impact.

It's not good.

It's had the adverse effect. She

1:21:431:21:48

stopped eating Breakfast as well.

With good parents behind her, she is

1:21:481:21:55

back on track.

Very glad to hear it.

We can take a step back to a minute.

1:21:551:22:23

A couple of years ago came from just

measuring children and communicating

1:22:231:22:27

it with parents.

In this case, it's

had unintended consequences. I've

1:22:271:22:32

seen that as well.

1:22:321:22:38

seen that as well. A lot of parents

were angry to receive letters like

1:22:381:22:41

this. One of the problems with the

letter, depending on where you live,

1:22:411:22:45

there will be different access to

services. When I had a look at it,

1:22:451:22:51

it was basically just directing to a

website, and clearly your daughter,

1:22:511:23:00

you were very active already. It's

quite demoralising. The other

1:23:001:23:03

problem with these letters is, we

are looking at obesity is a very

1:23:031:23:08

simple problem. Eat more healthily

and do more exercise but I can tell

1:23:081:23:12

you, there are plenty of parents who

are already doing that gets their

1:23:121:23:16

children are overweight and obese.

Not talking about this case,

1:23:161:23:21

generally across the country. There

are other factors that to obesity.

1:23:211:23:26

We have spoken about this before,

sleep and stress and relaxation.

1:23:261:23:34

Apparently our gut health, the

amount of antibiotics we might be

1:23:341:23:38

having as a child, that could change

their gut bacteria and more prone to

1:23:381:23:42

obesity.

1:23:421:23:47

obesity. While I understand this,

it's causing a lot of half a lot of

1:23:501:23:56

families.

1:23:561:24:03

families.

I got a letter saying my

son was overweight. Within a week,

1:24:031:24:07

he had a massive growth spurt. I

appreciate what you are coming from,

1:24:071:24:13

Gill, is address an issue across

society and maybe not every case

1:24:131:24:17

will get it right. Can you see where

they are coming from?

Yes, but they

1:24:171:24:23

send this letter, and it's not

really nice. You don't get a chance

1:24:231:24:26

to say what the child is doing

actively, if it is a medical

1:24:261:24:30

condition. You don't get a chance to

say anything, you just get sent this

1:24:301:24:34

letter and bring them up and they

are not helpful.

What is really

1:24:341:24:39

important is that in some areas.

1:24:391:24:46

important is that in some areas.

I

do think that was the case.

1:24:471:24:58

do think that was the case. I

absolutely accept your point. There

1:24:581:25:04

is not one case in isolation. What

sort of damage can I do? A child

1:25:041:25:12

thinking at that age they have an

issue. I think to be a little bit

1:25:121:25:20

careful.

So you are back playing

cricket? I am a legspinner.

Are you

1:25:201:25:28

dangerous? Yes.

Who is your

favourite legspinner? Do you like

1:25:281:25:35

Shane warn?

Not really. I don't

know.

Have you got a variation on

1:25:351:25:43

your leg spin?

I don't know.

What

would've helped more, having the

1:25:431:25:57

letter at all?

I didn't get the

chance to opt out of it. It just got

1:25:571:26:01

sent to me and I wouldn't have opted

in. If the schools had nurses in

1:26:011:26:06

them that you could go to, and talk

to, rather than getting a letter,

1:26:061:26:11

that would have been more helpful.

Thank you very much. Thank you very

1:26:111:26:17

much indeed good luck the sport.

Thank you to some of your messages,

1:26:171:26:22

we will get through some of those a

little bit later. I hope you

1:26:221:26:26

continue to enjoy your cricket.

1:26:261:26:29

You can see more on this tonight

on BBC Inside Out on BBC1

1:26:291:26:32

in the south at 7.30pm

and everywhere else on the iPlayer

1:26:321:26:35

afterwards.

1:26:351:26:42

News, travel and weather where you

are.

1:26:421:30:04

of the week.

1:30:041:30:05

Back in half an hour.

1:30:051:30:07

Hello.

1:30:121:30:13

This is Breakfast with Dan Walker

and Louise Minchin.

1:30:131:30:15

Welcome back.

1:30:151:30:16

We'll bring you all the latest news

and sport in a moment,

1:30:161:30:19

but also on Breakfast this morning.

1:30:191:30:21

As fresh reports emerge of charities

investigating staff over sexual

1:30:211:30:22

The head of Save the Children

has told this programme

1:30:241:30:26

that the organisation has robust

safeguarding measures in place,

1:30:261:30:29

despite having investigated 31 cases

of sexual misconduct last year.

1:30:291:30:30

Today, another charity, Oxfam,

is having crisis meetings

1:30:301:30:32

with the government over whether it

should keep millions of pounds

1:30:321:30:35

a year in taxpayer funding after it

emerged aid workers used

1:30:351:30:38

prostitutes in Haiti.

1:30:381:30:46

Save the Children said they fully

disclosed their actions

1:30:461:30:48

to the Charity Commission.

1:30:481:30:55

These were cases of sexual

harassment that we investigated,

1:30:551:30:57

31 cases.

1:30:571:30:58

We acted on 16 of them and handed

the dossier on ten of them

1:30:581:31:02

over to legal authorities.

1:31:021:31:05

Now, this is an example of a system

working.

1:31:061:31:08

This is us subjecting our

organisation to the greatest

1:31:081:31:11

possible scrutiny precisely in order

to protect these vulnerable women

1:31:111:31:14

and children that our staff

are working with on the front line

1:31:141:31:17

in Syria, in South

Sudan, with Rohingya

1:31:171:31:19

refugees, in Cox's Bazar,

and other places.

1:31:191:31:21

And we will asking the Charity

Commission about what they knew

1:31:211:31:24

about these allegations.

1:31:241:31:25

Let's just after 8am. So stay with

us for that.

1:31:251:31:30

Three British tourists have been

killed in a helicopter crash

1:31:301:31:33

in the United States.

1:31:331:31:34

It happened on a sightseeing trip

in the Grand Canyon.

1:31:341:31:37

They've been named by police

in Arizona as 27-year-old,

1:31:371:31:39

Becky Dobson, Jason Hill,

who was 32, and 30-year-old,

1:31:391:31:41

Stuart Hill.

1:31:411:31:42

Three other British nationals

and the pilot were injured.

1:31:421:31:44

Our first responders

had a 20 minute hike,

1:31:441:31:47

20 minute hike, to get to the scene.

1:31:471:31:49

They were right on...

1:31:491:31:50

We were notified of the crash

at 540, and first responders

1:31:501:31:53

were on the scene within

the first 30 minutes.

1:31:531:31:55

And we attribute that quick response

to what helped save lives.

1:31:551:32:03

Russian investigators are searching

fields near Moscow to try to find

1:32:061:32:09

out what caused a crash killed

in all people on board.

1:32:091:32:12

It went down just a few

minutes after taking off

1:32:121:32:14

yesterday afternoon.

1:32:141:32:15

They are considering

mechanical issues, human

1:32:151:32:17

failure, I did not mention

the possibility of terrorism.

1:32:171:32:25

Theresa May and the Irish Prime

Minister, Leo Varadkar,

1:32:321:32:35

are to visit Belfast

today for talks with

1:32:351:32:37

Northern Ireland's main parties.

1:32:371:32:38

There are growing indications a deal

is close that would see

1:32:381:32:41

devolved government restored.

1:32:411:32:42

Northern Ireland has been run

by civil servants since the power

1:32:421:32:45

sharing agreement between Sinn Fein

and the DUP collapsed last January.

1:32:451:32:53

Kensington Palace has announced more

details about the wedding

1:32:541:32:57

of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle

at Windsor Castle on the nineteenth

1:32:571:33:00

of May.

1:33:001:33:00

The service, in St George's Chapel,

will begin at midday,

1:33:001:33:03

which means it is unlikely to clash

with the FA Cup Final.

1:33:031:33:06

It's been confirmed

that the Archbishop of Canterbury

1:33:061:33:08

will marry the couple,

and that the Dean of Windsor

1:33:081:33:11

will conduct the service.

1:33:111:33:12

800 guests will be there.

1:33:121:33:14

The newlyweds will then embark

on a short carriage procession

1:33:141:33:16

around Windsor at one o'clock.

1:33:161:33:24

That is quite a few guests. Should

be all right.

You are upset.

Surely

1:33:241:33:33

you look at all of the sporting

occasions through the year when

1:33:331:33:38

planning a wedding, and then you

take that into account.

1:33:381:33:46

take that into account.

From a

personal perspective, 12 o'clock,

1:33:471:33:49

Saturday, BBC One, that is our spot!

They will not move it for you.

I

1:33:491:33:54

have been

1:33:541:34:05

have been informed Football Focus

has been moved from 3pm. Perhaps we

1:34:071:34:10

can have that. Perhaps Prince

William has it all planned.

1:34:101:34:13

Reception, helicopter to Wembley,

gives out the trophy at half past

1:34:131:34:17

seven, and back to it all.

Give us a

call, Harry.

1:34:171:34:31

call, Harry. It is pretty cold here.

Now imagine how cold air is over

1:34:311:34:38

there. Minus 16! Events have been

delayed. It looks just incredible.

1:34:381:34:46

It looks gorgeous.

1:34:461:34:54

It looks gorgeous. Team GB's Aimee

Fuller has been in the slope styles.

1:34:541:35:02

But just to give you a bit

of an idea what exactly "slopestyle"

1:35:021:35:06

involves,

1:35:061:35:06

it's essentially an obstacle

course for snowboarders.

1:35:061:35:08

They need to navigate

a variety of rails and jumps.

1:35:081:35:11

Competitors are scored

on the quality of their tricks,

1:35:111:35:13

including spins and flips.

1:35:131:35:14

It's a relatively new sport,

only becoming part of the Winter

1:35:141:35:17

Olympics in Sochi in 2014.

1:35:171:35:19

So, how did she get on?

1:35:191:35:20

Let's join Katherine, Downes who's

in Pyeongchang this morning.

1:35:201:35:24

You are wrapped up very warmly. Good

morning.

Yes. All of the layers are

1:35:241:35:32

on.

1:35:321:35:38

on. It is -16? No, try -26. That's

what it is today. Especially near

1:35:381:35:42

the slope styles. The wind has

caused the most chaos. Some events

1:35:421:35:48

were completely cancelled yesterday.

All 27 competitors went in the final

1:35:481:35:52

today. Among them, Great Britain's

Aimee Fuller. I will talk about her

1:35:521:35:59

later.

1:35:591:36:04

later. First, Sochi gold-medallist,

Jenny Jones. How did these

1:36:051:36:08

conditions affect snowboarders? Some

were saying perhaps the final should

1:36:081:36:14

not have gone ahead. The girls did

not get to showcase their abilities.

1:36:141:36:20

They absolutely did not get to show

their ability. Four years ago, it

1:36:201:36:26

looks like the tricks were the same,

the standard is the same, but it is

1:36:261:36:30

not. These girls are great. It is so

unfortunate to be that wind was so

1:36:301:36:34

gusty and strong that I am myself

was surprised they carried on the

1:36:341:36:39

event. -- unfortunate.

1:36:391:36:45

event. -- unfortunate.

Aimee came

17th. Will see reflect well on that?

1:36:451:36:49

Will see feel rubbed? -- she feel

robbed.

Many of them will feel

1:36:491:36:58

robbed. It is pot luck. If

1:36:581:37:09

robbed. It is pot luck. If you had a

tail wind you arrived at the bottom,

1:37:091:37:12

or up, you didn't make it. What

speed do you take? Really, I felt it

1:37:121:37:16

was quite dangerous.

1:37:161:37:22

was quite dangerous. There must have

been a team meeting, but they

1:37:221:37:24

carried on.

The second run was going

OK. The first obstacles were

1:37:241:37:27

cleared, no problem. She said it was

the third jump which felt like she

1:37:271:37:32

was in a wind tunnel.

It looked like

it. She was really solid. A

1:37:321:37:38

wonderful trick off the first. She

was clever, carrying her speed in.

1:37:381:37:44

Then a 360, another 360, all the way

around, and as she took that, it

1:37:441:37:53

around, and as she took that, it was

like a wind sail, just taking her to

1:37:531:37:56

the ground. I am just glad she is in

one piece. But we are both

1:37:561:38:00

disappointed, and rightly so.

It has

not been the best winter Olympics

1:38:001:38:03

for Tim Britain's slope

1:38:031:38:12

for Tim Britain's slope stylists.

But a gold medal for Jamie Anderson,

1:38:121:38:15

successfully defending her gold

medal from Sochi, perhaps not how

1:38:151:38:22

she wanted. A dominant is she?

Jamie

Anderson is an absolute legend at

1:38:221:38:26

snowboarding. To wind that gold

medal again, the same conditions as

1:38:261:38:30

everyone else, and she put it down

when accounted. It may not have been

1:38:301:38:36

as technical as we were hoping, with

the big spins and doubles we know

1:38:361:38:43

she can do, but she did the right

thing on the day. She was pleased to

1:38:431:38:48

get through that and happy to get a

second gold. Come on, that is

1:38:481:38:51

amazing.

No other female snowboarder

has achieved that. Thank you for

1:38:511:38:56

sharing your expertise. One other

gold medal, the team figures to get

1:38:561:39:03

in, Canada led from start to finish.

-- figure skating. They got the

1:39:031:39:15

silver in Sochi and turned it into

gold here. They finished it off with

1:39:151:39:18

the ice dance. They did not even

need to skate. The gold was already

1:39:181:39:23

in the bag. Congratulations to Team

Canada. Back to you for the rest of

1:39:231:39:29

the sport.

It does look -26. I hope

she has a good coat. Live coverage

1:39:291:39:37

of the Olympics continues on BBC One

straight after Breakfast at quarter

1:39:371:39:41

past nine.

1:39:411:39:45

And back home.

1:39:451:39:47

Greg Laidlaw was the main man

for Scotland as they beat France

1:39:471:39:51

32-26 at Murrayfield

in the Six Nations.

1:39:511:39:53

He scored 22 of their points,

including six penalties,

1:39:531:39:55

as they got their first win

of this year's competition.

1:39:551:39:58

They face reigning champions England

at Murrayfield next,

1:39:581:40:00

in two weeks' time.

1:40:001:40:05

Ireland claimed their first win

of this year's Women's Six Nations,

1:40:051:40:08

beating Italy by 21 points to eight.

1:40:081:40:10

After a failing to score a single

point in their first game,

1:40:101:40:13

against France, the Irish

were dominant from the start,

1:40:131:40:15

scoring three tries,

including this, from winger,

1:40:151:40:17

Megan Williams.

1:40:171:40:25

Newcastle hadn't won a home game

in the Premier League since October,

1:40:281:40:31

but they put that right yesterday,

and it was Manchester United

1:40:311:40:34

who suffered.

1:40:341:40:35

Matt Ritchie scored the only goal

of the game to lift his side two

1:40:351:40:39

points clear of the relegation zone,

and leave United 16

1:40:391:40:41

points behind leaders,

Manchester City.

1:40:411:40:49

Rangers and Aberdeen completed

the line up for the quarter-finals

1:40:491:40:52

of the Scottish Cup.

1:40:521:40:53

Aberdeen beat Dundee United 4-2,

while Rangers looked

1:40:531:40:55

in trouble against Ayr.

1:40:551:40:56

They were already a goal down

when Alfredo Morelos missed

1:40:561:40:59

an absolute sitter.

1:40:591:40:59

But he did redeem himself,

scoring twice in a 6-1 victory.

1:40:591:41:07

A great result for them as well.

More action from the Olympics later

1:41:151:41:20

in the programme. It looks cold.

That is part of the magic. -26. Wrap

1:41:201:41:31

up and embrace it.

1:41:311:41:36

When your child falls ill,

most parent's first port of call

1:41:371:41:40

tends to be the doctor

or Accident and Emergency.

1:41:401:41:42

But now, a new campaign

is encouraging people

1:41:421:41:45

to see their local pharmacist

for minor health issues.

1:41:451:41:47

NHS England says it could

help save £850 million

1:41:471:41:49

every year and reduce waiting times.

1:41:491:41:56

Breakfast's Graham Satchell

asked a group of parents

1:41:561:41:59

what they would do

in that situation.

1:41:591:42:01

If your daughter is really deal,

where would you normally take her?

1:42:011:42:06

-- ill.

The hospital. The pharmacy

does not give advice well.

Would you

1:42:061:42:14

go to a pharmacist?

I would. It is

more accessible.

Have you done that?

1:42:141:42:19

Never.

You go to the GP because they

are qualified, not the pharmacies.

1:42:191:42:26

Why not?

I would not trust them.

Hello, I am president of the Royal

1:42:261:42:35

Pharmaceutical Society. I have been

a pharmacist for 32 years. They

1:42:351:42:41

trained five years, only one less

than a doctor. They can deal with a

1:42:411:42:46

wide range of conditions from

1:42:461:42:54

wide range of conditions from coughs

to colds and tummy upsets, high

1:42:551:42:56

temperature, teething, many common

things.

I have asked the pharmacists

1:42:561:43:01

for advice before when my children

were small and they were ill. But I

1:43:011:43:07

always go to the doctors.

I have

insomnia and went to the pharmacy

1:43:071:43:12

and they sorted me out. It is a good

first port of call.

1:43:121:43:16

We're now joined by Dr Bruce Warner,

Deputy Chief Pharmaceutical Officer

1:43:161:43:19

for England.

1:43:191:43:19

Good morning. Thank you for joining

us. We will clear one of those

1:43:191:43:25

points up. Someone said, and it is

not correct, a GP is qualified, a

1:43:251:43:32

pharmacist is not. Shall be clear

that up?

They are qualified. They

1:43:321:43:37

trained for five years and are

registered and have a code of ethics

1:43:371:43:42

and are absolutely very qualified

and experienced.

What can a GP do

1:43:421:43:46

that a pharmacist cannot do? There

are distinctions.

Yes. Pharmacists

1:43:461:43:53

I'm not GPs. The whole point of this

is to free up GPs to do what they do

1:43:531:43:59

best, deal with patients that need

to see a GP with more serious

1:43:591:44:04

conditions. Pharmacists are able to

allow that to happen by seeing

1:44:041:44:10

people that have relatively minor

illnesses to help them by giving

1:44:101:44:14

them advice and give treatment.

They

cannot prescribe.

Some can. Most

1:44:141:44:24

community pharmacists on the high

street would not, but they can give

1:44:241:44:29

advice but one of the key things is

a pharmacist does not have your

1:44:291:44:33

medical history or that of the

child. That is one of the reasons

1:44:331:44:38

people would go to a doctor.

Pharmacists do now have access to

1:44:381:44:42

something called the summary of care

record, a summary of the medicine

1:44:421:44:48

people take. If they do not have

access to full medical notes, they

1:44:481:44:52

do have access to some information.

Especially parents and carers who

1:44:521:44:58

come in the pharmacies, they have a

good idea about what medicines loved

1:44:581:45:02

ones are taking.

It is often a

concern for parents. You will

1:45:021:45:05

appreciate this. You worry that

something that is minor in your

1:45:051:45:10

child could develop into something

major quite quickly. A lot of that

1:45:101:45:15

is about the reassurance you get

from a doctor. I have been in this

1:45:151:45:19

situation with my children, though

they are older now, you want a

1:45:191:45:23

doctor to say it is going to be OK.

It is just a rash. Would parents get

1:45:231:45:30

that same level of insurance from a

pharmacist?

Absolutely. I am a

1:45:301:45:35

parent myself. -- reassurance.

1:45:351:45:48

clumsy work as part of a

multidisciplinary team.

We have

1:46:111:46:15

technicians to

1:46:151:46:15

multidisciplinary team.

We have

technicians to do a tremendous job.

1:46:151:46:17

-- pharmacy work. I think the key to

this is pharmacists being freed up

1:46:171:46:22

to do what they do best and offer

that clinical advice, offer their

1:46:221:46:25

skills and expertise that it's a

whole team approach that allows that

1:46:251:46:30

to happen.

Thank you for your time

this morning.

1:46:301:46:36

We've got a pharmacist near us who

is brilliant and he's always got a

1:46:361:46:40

line of people to ask for various

things and is always there for

1:46:401:46:44

advice, try this, but also says if

there is a problem, go and sealed

1:46:441:46:49

GPs or I suppose that's the right

way of doing it. Absolutely. Let's

1:46:491:46:55

look at this beautiful sunrise.

Matt

is somewhere there.

1:46:551:47:04

is somewhere there. What a stunning

start to the working weekend.

1:47:071:47:14

start to the working weekend. A

pretty chilly start of the day. I am

1:47:191:47:25

here at RHS Wisley in Surrey.

We

1:47:251:47:29

pretty chilly start of the day. I am

here at RHS Wisley in Surrey.

We

1:47:291:47:29

have been talking about snowdrops

this morning. The fact that they

1:47:291:47:33

have been getting earlier and

earlier in recent decades. Given the

1:47:331:47:36

fact we have seen some milder

winters. This winter has been around

1:47:361:47:41

where it should be. If you thought

it's been quite cold, northern

1:47:411:47:45

Scotland, you might be right. It's

what a standard window should really

1:47:451:47:48

be like. Let's take alert at the

forecast for today. It is a widely

1:47:481:47:54

frosty start. Most places, dry with

sunny spells. A few more sleet and

1:47:541:48:02

snow showers, particularly in the

West were it does start icy this

1:48:021:48:05

morning. Another few centimetres of

snow here and there as they continue

1:48:051:48:11

to push in on the westerly breeze.

Because it's not strong, not as many

1:48:111:48:17

showers reaching the east. Western

areas, a few showers. Further north,

1:48:171:48:28

a further few centimetres of snow,

particularly in western parts of

1:48:281:48:33

Scotland. A dry start to the week.

Temperatures up a degree. It would

1:48:331:48:39

feel quite as Chile. The frost forms

very quickly this evening. Changes

1:48:391:48:45

tonight. Strengthening. The weather

front pushing its way in as well.

1:48:451:48:50

Bringing rain and a bitter pill

sleet to southern areas but across

1:48:501:48:54

parts of Northern Ireland, some

heavy snow for the hills. Into the

1:48:541:48:59

start of Tuesday, parts of Scotland,

central and southern areas and also

1:48:591:49:04

to parts of northern England, not

only a cold start but here we could

1:49:041:49:08

see some snow causing some travel

problems first thing. We could see

1:49:081:49:12

up to ten centimetres of snow. Even

a

1:49:121:49:19

a covering of snow. Further south

and east, you might start with some

1:49:191:49:23

sunshine, turning cloudy with

outbreaks of rain. A bitter split

1:49:231:49:26

over higher ground. Tomorrow will

brighten up after that weather front

1:49:261:49:32

to start with. Temperatures still

struggling. Not as much sunshine. It

1:49:321:49:38

will probably feel colder once

again. Ayce will be the big issue

1:49:381:49:43

into Tuesday night to take this into

Wednesday morning. Giving way to

1:49:431:49:47

lots of cloud on Wednesday. Another

weather system pushes in. The

1:49:471:49:56

occasional rain and drizzle.

Temperatures lifting. We could see

1:49:561:50:03

temperatures hit 11 degrees in the

south-west. They will drop back

1:50:031:50:07

again as we go into Thursday. The

weather system that brings the rain,

1:50:071:50:10

sleet and hill snow is just left

with a bit more cloud to the

1:50:101:50:15

south-east. Most places will see the

return of sunshine with some snow

1:50:151:50:19

flurries to the north-west of the

country and as I said, temperatures

1:50:191:50:22

down a little bit on what we have

seen. That is how it is looking.

1:50:221:50:26

Widely frosty start. Take it easy

out there. Enjoy your day.

1:50:261:50:36

Magnificent gloves that Matthew has.

The Union Jack clubs. They are

1:50:361:50:41

keeping me warm. Are they double

gloves or a single layer?

Single

1:50:411:50:46

glove but they are very thick. I

have about 50 layers elsewhere.

Take

1:50:461:50:50

his advice.

1:50:501:50:51

Only 2% of eligible fathers have

taken up shared parental leave three

1:50:511:50:54

years on from its introduction,

that's according to government

1:50:541:50:56

stats out today.

1:50:561:50:57

Steph is taking a look at why.

1:50:571:51:02

It's an interesting one. I will tell

you about what it is meant to

1:51:021:51:09

parents.

Since 2015, the law changed

to allow both parents to take leave

1:51:091:51:14

and a child's first year. It's meant

up to 50 weeks of leave can be

1:51:141:51:18

shared. 37 weeks of which is paid.

Only 2% of new parents opted to take

1:51:181:51:25

it up. Victoria and Martin Smith.

The me, it was a chance to bond.

1:51:251:51:38

Otherwise, we will see them at

night.

It worked out really well,

1:51:381:51:44

that was the main reason we did it.

If it had just been me, I could only

1:51:441:51:52

have taken nine months.

I am with

1:51:521:51:59

Kate Cooper is from the Institute

of Leadership & Management.

1:51:591:52:03

you would think Martin and

Victoria's story would be quite

1:52:031:52:07

common but it really isn't.

Why is

that? The basic reason is financial.

1:52:071:52:13

It's a very expensive thing to do,

to give up your wage for any number

1:52:131:52:18

of weeks and the parental leave pay

for men even enhanced, the way it

1:52:181:52:24

would be perhaps with an employee

giving improved maternity pay. We

1:52:241:52:30

are having to give the quite a lot

of financial benefit in order to not

1:52:301:52:35

allow so much but share the

parenting with the father of the

1:52:351:52:38

baby.

It's interesting because there

is the financial reason but because

1:52:381:52:44

of the law take up, there is not a

lot of people doing it.

1:52:441:52:50

Organisations we see all the time,

absolutely crucial. The senior role,

1:52:501:52:57

we found with paternity leave,

people know it's all right. Other

1:52:571:53:01

fathers will think, I can do that as

well. But nobody is doing it, then

1:53:011:53:05

it's not all right to do. You have

to be a trailblazer and many fathers

1:53:051:53:11

report their experience, that is

that some women do, when they take a

1:53:111:53:15

large amount of time-out of the

workplace, they will be

1:53:151:53:18

disadvantaged in some way when they

come back.

They will miss

1:53:181:53:21

promotions, not be seen as serious,

saw the reasons it is intended, is

1:53:211:53:26

to try and address the gender pay

gap. Sharing the possible loss to

1:53:261:53:36

your career of taking time-out.

Is

rating businesses can do?

There's an

1:53:361:53:45

awful lot they can do in terms of

enhancing parental leave. So many

1:53:451:53:51

fathers haven't even heard about it.

We did some research five years ago.

1:53:511:53:56

People won't even taking paternity

leave. The government could say this

1:53:561:54:01

is an individual right. It's not the

father taking from one parent. That

1:54:011:54:07

would be a great step. To actually

look at the level of the pay which

1:54:071:54:12

is very, very low. It is low

compared to many countries in the

1:54:121:54:17

EU. But within the organisation, we

know when the leave is going to take

1:54:171:54:22

place. Why don't we use that to

demonstrate how agile and flexible

1:54:221:54:29

we are and of course, particularly

in companies where they can't pay

1:54:291:54:35

huge bonuses, flexible working is a

brilliant perk. How do we compare?

1:54:351:54:42

The last time I look at the

statistics, we were the third lowest

1:54:421:54:46

country in the EU. If you want to

look for a great place, we go

1:54:461:54:51

outside and look at Iceland, where

they do this, they recognise it is

1:54:511:54:56

to parents, they are both entitled

to leave. Any of us who has had a

1:54:561:55:00

baby knows the first baby, 3-person

job.

1:55:001:55:10

job. Taking one person 's leave. In

Iceland, both parents are entitled

1:55:101:55:19

to leave.

1:55:191:55:25

to leave. Get in touch with us do

the usual methods.

1:55:251:55:41

the usual methods.

Getting away

getting to my goal. There will be

1:55:431:55:46

setbacks.

1:55:461:55:55

setbacks. We will speak to the stars

of the new BBC series which follows

1:55:551:56:01

six gifted children from low-income

backgrounds as they try to follow

1:56:011:56:04

their dreams.

1:56:041:59:27

Hello this is Breakfast,

with Dan Walker and Louise Minchin.

1:59:531:59:55

Oxfam comes under

increasing pressure -

1:59:551:59:56

as the charity's bosses

try to convince government ministers

1:59:561:59:59

they should keep millions

of pounds of public funding.

1:59:592:00:01

The aid agency will have

to say what it knew

2:00:012:00:03

about allegations of sexual

misconduct by some of its staff

2:00:032:00:06

in Haiti, and what it's doing

to stop it happening again.

2:00:062:00:08

Good morning it's Monday

the 12th of February.

2:00:082:00:10

Also this morning.

2:00:102:00:11

Three British tourists who died

in a helicopter crash

2:00:112:00:13

in the Grand Canyon are named by US

police - three other

2:00:132:00:16

Britons were injured.

2:00:162:00:20

These are the first pictures

of an iceberg in the Antarctic,

2:00:202:00:23

four times the size of London,

as British scientists prepare

2:00:232:00:25

to embark on an urgent mission

to discover what lies beneath.

2:00:252:00:33

There are concerns about the future

of the East Coast mainline -

2:00:332:00:36

which runs between Edinburgh

and London and carries nearly

2:00:362:00:38

38 million passengers a year.

2:00:382:00:40

I'll be looking at why.

2:00:402:00:48

It's -26 and very windy in

Pyeongchang. The women's slopestyle

2:00:512:01:00

final did go ahead. I will be

talking to Britain's Amy Fuller, who

2:01:002:01:04

was competing in that final, to find

out whether she thinks it was the

2:01:042:01:08

right decision.

2:01:082:01:09

Joanna Lumley - host

of this year's Baftas -

2:01:092:01:11

tells Naga how the Me Too

and Times Up movements

2:01:112:01:13

are changing the world of film

and entertainment.

2:01:132:01:17

I hope this is opening windows and

flooding light into every part of

2:01:172:01:21

our industry at all industries, all

professions.

2:01:212:01:24

And Matt's under the

crescent moon, admiring

2:01:242:01:26

the snowdrops at RHS Wisley.

2:01:262:01:27

Good morning.

It may be cold, it may be frosty,

2:01:272:01:34

but it's a stunning start to the

working week and first day of half

2:01:342:01:38

term week for many. Lots of sunshine

in eastern areas. More snow flurries

2:01:382:01:43

in the West. Your full forecast in

15 minutes. See you then.

2:01:432:01:49

Thank you.

2:01:492:01:53

Senior officials at Oxfam will try

to convince the International

2:01:532:01:57

Development Secretary that they

should keep their million pounds a

2:01:572:02:00

year in government funding.

This is after revelations that

2:02:002:02:04

workers used prostitutes in Haiti.

The charity has been forced to get

2:02:042:02:10

the full findings of the situation

which led to people being sacked and

2:02:102:02:13

others resigning.

Earlier the head of Save the

2:02:132:02:17

Children told us that the

organisation had a robust

2:02:172:02:21

safeguarding measures in place and

had investigated 31 cases of sexual

2:02:212:02:27

misconduct last year.

These were cases of sexual

2:02:272:02:30

harassment. We investigated 31

cases. We acted on 16 of them and

2:02:302:02:38

hand on ten of them over to legal

authorities. This is an example of a

2:02:382:02:43

system working. This is us

subjecting our organisation to the

2:02:432:02:48

greatest possible scrutiny,

precisely in order to protect these

2:02:482:02:53

vulnerable women and children.

We

shall be talking to the Charity

2:02:532:02:57

commission about those new

allegations.

2:02:572:02:59

That's in a few moments' time.

2:02:592:03:00

Three British tourists have been

killed in a helicopter crash

2:03:002:03:03

in the United States.

2:03:032:03:04

It happened while on

a sightseeing flight

2:03:042:03:05

over the Grand Canyon.

2:03:052:03:06

Three other Britons,

and the pilot, were injured.

2:03:062:03:08

Our North America correspondent,

James Cook reports.

2:03:082:03:16

The helicopter came down

in rocky, remote terrain,

2:03:172:03:19

bursting into flames.

2:03:192:03:20

It appears the survivors

were able to get out

2:03:202:03:22

despite suffering serious injuries.

2:03:222:03:24

But three Britons on board

died at the scene.

2:03:242:03:27

27-year-old, Becky Dobson,

30-year-old, Stuart Hill,

2:03:272:03:28

and Jason Hill, who was 32.

2:03:282:03:34

For the survivors, three young

Britons and the pilot,

2:03:342:03:36

the ordeal was far from over.

2:03:362:03:39

Rescuers, including local military

personnel, were flown in but had

2:03:392:03:42

to walk to the crash site

using night vision.

2:03:422:03:48

It was more than eight hours before

the injured were flown

2:03:482:03:50

to hospital in Los Vegas.

2:03:502:03:57

-- to hospital in Las Vegas.

2:03:572:04:00

We weren't able to extract anyone

until two this morning.

2:04:002:04:03

High winds, brown-out dust

conditions, rugged terrain,

2:04:032:04:04

and as you know when you fly

in treacherous conditions like this,

2:04:042:04:07

you have to have special

training and special people.

2:04:072:04:10

It's not clear what caused the crash

which involved a Eurocopter EC130.

2:04:102:04:14

The tour company, Papillon Airways,

says it is the world's largest

2:04:142:04:17

aerial sightseeing outfits,

flying 600,000 people a year.

2:04:422:04:48

Russian investigators are searching

fields near Moscow for clues to find

2:04:482:04:50

out why a passenger plane crashed,

killing all 71 people on board.

2:04:502:04:53

The Saratov Airlines jet

went down just a few

2:04:532:04:55

minutes after taking

off yesterday afternoon.

2:04:552:04:57

Officials say they are

considering weather conditions,

2:04:572:04:59

human error and technical failure

as possible causes but

2:04:592:05:01

they did not mention

the possibility of terrorism.

2:05:012:05:05

Theresa May and the Irish Prime

Minister, Leo Varadkar,

2:05:052:05:07

are to visit Belfast today for talks

with Northern Ireland's

2:05:072:05:09

main parties.

2:05:092:05:10

There are growing

indications a deal is

2:05:102:05:12

close that would see

devolved government restored.

2:05:122:05:14

Northern Ireland has been run

by civil servants since the power

2:05:142:05:16

sharing agreement between Sinn Fein

and the DUP collapsed last January.

2:05:162:05:24

An inquiry is being launched

into the imminent collapse

2:05:272:05:29

of the East Coast rail franchise.

2:05:292:05:30

Steph's here to explain

what's gone wrong.

2:05:302:05:37

And other stuff, as well.

This is

the line that runs from London Kings

2:05:372:05:42

Cross to Edinburgh and on to

Aberdeen. It carries around 80

2:05:422:05:47

million passengers per year. Over

the last ten, 20 years the running

2:05:472:05:51

of this line has changed hands quite

a lot. The areas concerned now that

2:05:512:05:56

the current operators, which is

Virgin, 90% owned by Stagecoach, 10%

2:05:562:06:06

owned by Richard Branson's Virgin

group, they say they are having

2:06:062:06:10

problems. Although the line is

profitable it is difficult to

2:06:102:06:13

predict how passenger numbers will

change. They say they are having

2:06:132:06:17

problems with the money side of it.

MPs are looking into what could

2:06:172:06:21

actually happen if they were to end

this franchise, which is looking

2:06:212:06:26

quite likely. It's hard to say. It

doesn't mean the line will stop. It

2:06:262:06:31

definitely won't. It'll just going

into other hands to run the line.

2:06:312:06:37

For anybody using it, or working on

it, doesn't mean that service will

2:06:372:06:40

not exist. It has happened a number

of times. It's always in the news.

2:06:402:06:45

People always wondering why we are

in the news again. That is one of

2:06:452:06:50

the stories. The other thing is

Barclays Bank. You might remember

2:06:502:06:53

about ten years ago Barclays made a

loan to Qatar which got them into

2:06:532:07:00

trouble. The serious fraud office

has been looking into it. They have

2:07:002:07:08

charged the holding company back in

2017. Four individuals were charged

2:07:082:07:15

to do with this loan. We have found

out this morning that the bank part

2:07:152:07:21

of the business is now going to be

charged. This is important because

2:07:212:07:23

that's the bit of the business that

has the licence to do banking with

2:07:232:07:28

other countries. If they are found

guilty there is a chance that

2:07:282:07:31

Barclays Bank could lose their

license to do finance in other

2:07:312:07:36

countries which is huge. Although

they are playing that down. They

2:07:362:07:40

have said they have been working

with the regulators on this. Other

2:07:402:07:44

banks in the past have been found

guilty at this level and still kept

2:07:442:07:47

their licenses. But business people

are picking this up and wondering

2:07:472:07:51

what it might mean for Barclays

2:07:512:07:54

are picking this up and wondering

what it might mean for Barclays.

2:07:542:07:54

Thanks very much.

South Africa's governing party,

the ANC, says the fate

2:07:572:07:59

of President Zuma will be decided

within 24 hours.

2:07:592:08:01

There is mounting pressure

for him to stand down,

2:08:012:08:04

following allegations of corruption.

2:08:042:08:05

Speaking at a rally in Cape Town,

the leader of the ANC,

2:08:052:08:07

Cyril Ramaphosa said the key aim

of any transition of power

2:08:072:08:10

was to unite South Africans.

2:08:102:08:16

London City Airport has been closed

until further notice

2:08:162:08:18

after the discovery of an unexploded

Second World War bomb.

2:08:182:08:20

The device was found

in the River Thames.

Passengers are being urged to check

with their airlines before

Kensington Palace has announced more

details about the wedding

2:08:312:08:33

of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle

at Windsor Castle on

2:08:332:08:36

the nineteenth of May.

2:08:362:08:39

The service, in St George's Chapel,

2:08:392:08:40

will begin at midday,

which means it is unlikely to clash

2:08:402:08:43

with the FA Cup Final.

2:08:432:08:44

It's been confirmed

that the Archbishop of Canterbury

2:08:442:08:46

will marry the couple,

and that the Dean of Windsor

2:08:462:08:48

will conduct the service.

2:08:482:08:49

800 guests will be there.

2:08:492:08:50

The newlyweds will then embark

on a short carriage procession

2:08:502:08:53

around Windsor at one o'clock.

2:08:532:09:01

The British Antarctic survey has

captured the first footage of an

2:09:052:09:07

iceberg which is, if you can believe

it, four times the size of London.

2:09:072:09:14

The footage has been released

at the start of what the scientists

2:09:142:09:20

The iceberg is four times the size

of London, which broke away

2:09:252:09:28

from the continent's

ice sheet last year.

2:09:282:09:30

The footage has been released

at the start of what the scientists

2:09:302:09:33

say is an "urgent mission"

to document the marine ecosystem

2:09:332:09:35

that was exposed when the giant

iceberg drifted away.

2:09:352:09:37

Our science correspondent

Victoria Gill has more.

2:09:372:09:39

The trillion tonne a 68 iceberg is

gradually drifting away from the

2:09:392:09:41

Antarctic continent and into the

sea. It's these ice-cold waters that

2:09:412:09:45

scientists are now eager to explore.

In the British Antarctic survey

2:09:452:09:51

vessel a team will spend three weeks

studying the marine life that has

2:09:512:09:54

been locked away here for a

millennia. They have described it as

2:09:542:09:58

a treacherous but urgent mission.

There are likely to be new species

2:09:582:10:03

discovered as researchers seek out

the creatures that make their home

2:10:032:10:07

beneath the vast ice sheet. But the

team also hopes to understand the

2:10:072:10:11

processes that caused the iceberg to

break away. This could reveal more

2:10:112:10:14

about just how this fragile, frozen

wilderness at the bottom of the

2:10:142:10:19

world will change as the climate

warms.

2:10:192:10:22

Beautiful pictures.

2:10:222:10:26

The revelations concerning

the behaviour of some aid workers

2:10:262:10:28

threatens not just Oxfam's

reputation, but the integrity

2:10:282:10:30

of the charity sector as a whole.

2:10:302:10:32

Christian Aid, Save the Children

and the British Red Cross all face

2:10:322:10:35

questions over allegations

they investigated staff

2:10:352:10:36

over sexual misconduct.

2:10:362:10:37

So what did the regulator know

about what was going

2:10:372:10:40

on in these organisations?

2:10:402:10:44

Michelle Russell is the Director

of Investigations,

2:10:442:10:46

Monitoring and Enforcement

at the Charity Commission

2:10:462:10:48

and joins us from London.

2:10:482:10:54

Thank you for coming on BBC this

morning and answering questions. Did

2:10:542:11:01

anybody at the Charity commission

know that Oxfam staff in Haiti were

2:11:012:11:05

paying for prostitutes?

Absolutely

not. We found out about the details

2:11:052:11:10

of this at the same time as the

public did on Friday. It is clearly

2:11:102:11:16

shocking. We wrote to Oxfam on

Friday to ask for full disclosure

2:11:162:11:21

about what they knew and when. They

did report to us that back then they

2:11:212:11:26

were dealing with a staffing

incident which had led to people

2:11:262:11:31

being dismissed. But we didn't know

that it was the allegations about

2:11:312:11:36

prostitutes and in fact we were told

there was no allegations of abuse of

2:11:362:11:40

beneficiaries.

Did they mention

inappropriate sexual behaviour back

2:11:402:11:46

in 2011? And if they did surely that

should have been a red flag.

They

2:11:462:11:51

did say they were investigating some

allegations of sexual misconduct.

2:11:512:11:56

Why wasn't that looked into further?

Because what was not clear was the

2:11:562:12:01

extent and seriousness of those.

They assured us, they categorically

2:12:012:12:07

said there was no allegations of

abuse of beneficiaries. Equally they

2:12:072:12:11

did not disclose that there were

allegations of possible crimes,

2:12:112:12:15

including those involving minors.

It

sounds like Oxfam have been involved

2:12:152:12:22

in a cover-up here.

Well, we have,

as I said, written to Oxfam for full

2:12:222:12:29

disclosure and to reflect on what

they reported to us. We are waiting

2:12:292:12:34

to hear from them. We are giving

them the opportunity to explain

2:12:342:12:37

themselves to us. That will happen

today and at meetings on Wednesday.

2:12:372:12:44

Please be assured that absolutely

full and frank disclosure to the

2:12:442:12:48

regulator and authorities is

absolutely key. Transparency and

2:12:482:12:51

accountability is what is needed.

When you read over the weekend and

2:12:512:12:56

today that people are looking at the

job you and your organisation have

2:12:562:12:59

done. You either don't have the

power to regulate or you're not

2:12:592:13:04

doing your job well enough, people

say, how would you respond to that?

2:13:042:13:09

Absolutely we are on this. We have

warned charities that they need to

2:13:092:13:13

put safeguards in at the top of

their agenda on governance matter.

2:13:132:13:18

We issued a report two weeks ago

that said that. In addition we

2:13:182:13:22

published a report into our

discussions about safeguarding in

2:13:222:13:25

Oxfam just before Christmas. And we

had made Oxfam make a number of

2:13:252:13:31

commitments for change. I have to

say that there are some good things

2:13:312:13:35

Oxfam have been doing. They have

been more transparent. They have, as

2:13:352:13:40

you heard over the weekend, been

clear that they are ashamed about

2:13:402:13:44

what has happened. There is no place

in the charity sector for that sort

2:13:442:13:47

of behaviour. We are the Charity

regulator acting on the half of the

2:13:472:13:53

public and we are absolutely clear

with that, as is defeated, we are

2:13:532:13:59

united on that.

Are you happy with

the job that you have done?

If we

2:13:592:14:06

had known the full fax we would have

dealt with it differently. We have

2:14:062:14:09

said that. -- the full fact Sola we

would have dealt with it

2:14:092:14:16

differently. We have warned

charities that they need to up their

2:14:162:14:18

game. If they have not disclose to

us in the past fully what has gone

2:14:182:14:25

on, they have to do that now, they

ought to be reviewing their

2:14:252:14:30

processes and procedures. We've done

that already just before Christmas.

2:14:302:14:33

I don't want to sound like I'm being

repetitive. You knew in 2011 there

2:14:332:14:39

was inappropriate sexual behaviour,

there was bullying, there was staff

2:14:392:14:43

intimidation, get you didn't take

further steps. If that was to happen

2:14:432:14:48

now would you act differently?

If

everything had been disclosed to us

2:14:482:14:54

we would have dealt with it

differently, if there had been full

2:14:542:14:58

disclosure.

Even though you knew

about bullying, harassment and staff

2:14:582:15:03

intimidation and inappropriate

sexual behaviour,

2:15:032:15:09

sexual behaviour, As she know it led

to the dismissal of staff and post

2:15:162:15:24

output. The most important thing now

is that there is complete openness

2:15:242:15:26

and transparency not just an Oxfam

but in

2:15:262:15:34

but in terms of other charities,

there is a call to leadership in the

2:15:362:15:42

sector about the culture in which

they wish to promote in the charity

2:15:422:15:46

sector, we do not want public trust

and confidence in charities rocked

2:15:462:15:48

by this but these sorts of incidents

happen, there are 167,000 charities,

2:15:482:15:50

millions of volunteers doing a

fantastic job on the front line in

2:15:502:15:52

really difficult circumstances but

it's really important when these

2:15:522:15:55

allegations and incidents happen

that they are fully reported and

2:15:552:15:57

dealt with promptly and responsibly

and that is our job as the regulator

2:15:572:16:01

to make sure that happens. You

rightly mentioned some of the

2:16:012:16:05

amazing work done by charities not

just in this country but around the

2:16:052:16:08

world but you must eat concerned

what we are talking about today and

2:16:082:16:11

what he will have read and seen and

heard over the weekend, it will rock

2:16:112:16:16

the faith in the system and you must

eat concerned, you must know, so

2:16:162:16:20

many people are helped by money in

this country that is sent abroad

2:16:202:16:23

that might not get this money

because people are looking at that

2:16:232:16:27

and thinking I am going to stop that

I wrecked their bit, I am not going

2:16:272:16:30

to put my money in that bucket

because this is what it is used for.

2:16:302:16:36

There are two macro things,

transparency that we need to shine a

2:16:362:16:39

light on this is absolutely vital

and we don't want the public,

2:16:392:16:43

because of that accountability and

transparency to shine away from

2:16:432:16:49

supporting charities. The second

thing is, it's the responsibility on

2:16:492:16:53

charities working with us and donors

like the Department for

2:16:532:16:57

International Development to make

sure they step up Pudsey juice and

2:16:572:17:00

practices and the culture and

leadership at the top is role model

2:17:002:17:03

for the top of the organisation and

we will work with the Department for

2:17:032:17:08

International Development to help

them and make sure that is the case.

2:17:082:17:11

Thank you very much for talking to

us. I know the conversation was

2:17:112:17:16

Oxfam will be ongoing and the

charities commission will be meeting

2:17:162:17:20

with Penny Mordaunt later this week.

We know it's cold in South Korea and

2:17:202:17:25

it's cold here, not quite so cold.

It is -26 in South Korea.

2:17:252:17:32

Here's Matt with a look

at this morning's weather.

2:17:322:17:39

I have no right to complain, it's a

wind-chill of -27 in South Korea.

2:17:402:17:46

But nothing to complain about, 240

acres of gardens in RHS Wisley and a

2:17:462:17:53

lot of it covered in Frost, this no

drops and the iris flowers are out.

2:17:532:18:00

-- the snowdrops. Snowdrops

apparently coming into flower much

2:18:002:18:07

earlier than they were decades ago,

a sign that climate is changing.

2:18:072:18:12

Winter is not done with us yet, not

done with us today. Let's look at

2:18:122:18:16

the forecast. Covered in Frost here,

just about everywhere has a frost

2:18:162:18:21

this morning, term jurors at --

temperatures at or below freezing.

2:18:212:18:28

Snow showers this morning in

Scotland, northern England and

2:18:282:18:34

Northern Ireland, more snow in

places, if you rain, sleet and hail

2:18:342:18:38

showers, most of the UK starting the

day dry, who deal of sunshine in the

2:18:382:18:43

east, the wind is not as strong as

yesterday, fewer showers making

2:18:432:18:46

their way to the east. In the West,

continuing to see showers into this

2:18:462:18:52

afternoon, not as many as yesterday.

Showers in the south, of rain hail

2:18:522:18:57

and sleep, further snow to come. The

temperatures today, up eight had an

2:18:572:19:03

yesterday, given the fact the winds

are lighter, it won't feel quite as

2:19:032:19:06

chilly, especially the Sun is

gaining strength day by day. Once

2:19:062:19:11

you have lost it this evening it

will turn frosty again. Temperatures

2:19:112:19:15

rising in the west later, the wind

strengthening, this weather front

2:19:152:19:20

making its way in bringing rain and

hill snow to Northern Ireland,

2:19:202:19:24

reaching colder air across Scotland

and northern England, snow becoming

2:19:242:19:28

more significant, up to ten

centimetres on higher ground,

2:19:282:19:32

possibly more. Tomorrow morning, the

central belt, some snow as well,

2:19:322:19:39

some problems possible across

Scotland and northern England for

2:19:392:19:42

those travelling first thing.

Further south any snow mixed in with

2:19:422:19:46

rain on the top of the hills, this

front pushing eastwards, gale force

2:19:462:19:49

winds with it, meaning things will

brighten up in the West later. Some

2:19:492:19:54

sunshine. Another cold day across

the country, especially given the

2:19:542:19:59

stronger winds. And a lack of

sunshine for parts of it. The

2:19:592:20:02

weather front departs as we go into

Tuesday night, is is the big risk

2:20:022:20:09

taking us into Wednesday. Wright

starred across this, another weather

2:20:092:20:14

system pushing its way in, snow

mainly limited to the higher ground,

2:20:142:20:19

warmer air, temperatures in the

south-west possibly heading 11

2:20:192:20:23

degrees, ploughed through Wednesday

afternoon, outbreaks of rain and

2:20:232:20:27

drizzle, some snow over the Scottish

mountains. This weather front

2:20:272:20:32

pushing out Wednesday night into

Thursday, minimal risk of frost,

2:20:322:20:36

still a lot of cloud in the south

and south this dub England, to the

2:20:362:20:40

northern quest of the UK, more

sunshine on Thursday, some snow

2:20:402:20:44

showers in the far north-west. That

is how you weather is looking, I

2:20:442:20:47

will be back in 30 minutes. Back to

Dan and

2:20:472:20:50

appropriately, we are going to talk

about icebergs!

2:20:552:21:00

Scientists are on a race

against time to access an underwater

2:21:002:21:03

ecosystem in Antarctica.

2:21:032:21:05

It had been hidden by for thousands

of years and was only exposed

2:21:052:21:07

after an enormous iceberg split

into the sea.

2:21:072:21:09

We will speak to Katrin Linse from

the British Antarctic Survey in just

2:21:092:21:14

a moment but let's give you a scale

of what we are talking about.

2:21:142:21:19

The iceberg - named A68 -

is four times the size

2:21:192:21:22

of Greater London.

2:21:222:21:23

And its ice is - on average -

190-metres thick.

2:21:232:21:26

So it's perhaps not surprising

the ecosystem was hidden

2:21:262:21:33

was hidden for 120,000 years.

2:21:332:21:36

Katrin Linse is from the British

Antarctic Survey and joins us now.

2:21:362:21:41

Tell us what you are trying to do.

You need to get close to this

2:21:412:21:45

iceberg.

We need to leave the

Falkland Islands and go down to the

2:21:452:21:50

area which will take us between 3-6

days and we need to get through the

2:21:502:21:55

pack ice and there we need the

weather to be correct so we can get

2:21:552:21:59

in and then we go to the area that

had been covered by the iceberg and

2:21:592:22:04

use marine equipment to collect

animals from the water column and

2:22:042:22:07

the seafloor.

What are you hoping

you might find? Ordinary you would

2:22:072:22:13

never have access to this.

Normally

we don't have access and we have no

2:22:132:22:18

idea what we will find, the

expectation is we will find animals

2:22:182:22:22

are small, related to deep sea

animals in a low food environment,

2:22:222:22:26

animals that are not adapted to live

on phytoplankton, no vegetarians.

2:22:262:22:32

They will have adapted to scavenge

for the predators. We have looked at

2:22:322:22:39

clams, bivalves, that normally

filter feed that have adapted to

2:22:392:22:42

sucking little Shrimps that fly

past, they become predators and

2:22:422:22:47

cannibal, that was the only food

around. That is what I expect to

2:22:472:22:50

find.

Talk to us about the iceberg,

it's absolutely huge, carved off the

2:22:502:22:58

ice shelf, is that right?

It broke

off the ice shelf the 12th of July

2:22:582:23:03

last summer, since then has moved

50-60 kilometres away from its

2:23:032:23:09

original position, 100th of the

kilometres long.

And that several

2:23:092:23:13

hundred metres deep.

The ice is

several hundred metres deep,

2:23:132:23:18

underneath the iceberg we only had a

few hundred metres of water column,

2:23:182:23:24

a restricted area, almost if you

live in a cave, the water is

2:23:242:23:28

cavernous.

It will have had no light

for hundreds of years.

No light for

2:23:282:23:33

many years and because on land, the

food starts with plans and greenery

2:23:332:23:40

and for you don't have that, this is

fight the food web will change

2:23:402:23:45

dramatically.

Toggles through these

pictures, this is what you are

2:23:452:23:49

trying to get to exactly.

This is

what we are trying to get to, this

2:23:492:23:54

is a side of the iceberg, you can

see the ice sticking out maybe 30-40

2:23:542:23:59

metres above sea level and it will

go, 100, 200 metres below. Around it

2:23:592:24:05

we have sea ice and pack ice,

smaller icebergs have broken, still

2:24:052:24:10

the size of this building.

Can I ask

you about the name capital a 68.

In

2:24:102:24:25

the ROTC it's the opposite, they are

numbered. It is a large iceberg

2:24:252:24:31

being named, the 68th iceberg and of

little bits break off that is still

2:24:312:24:35

huge and bigger than this building

they are called a 68 A, P, C. They

2:24:352:24:46

are all tracked by satellite.

We

know for it they are. Important you

2:24:462:24:50

know that because presumably, this

is a dangerous environment to be in,

2:24:502:24:54

isn't it?

Yes.

Tell us about how you

prepare.

Normally we prepare for

2:24:542:25:02

between three and five years.

This

happened last July. You can see that

2:25:022:25:08

size of the clap.

The crack has

ordered but it was still connected.

2:25:082:25:13

It had not broken off. The National

environment research Council enabled

2:25:132:25:18

us to go and plan an expedition just

a few days, weeks after the crack

2:25:182:25:22

happened so we can go and so fast...

Is what is happening here with this

2:25:222:25:30

taking off, is that global warming

or is it something else?

Something

2:25:302:25:34

scientists debate, we had huge ice

shelves carving alongside the

2:25:342:25:40

Antarctic peninsula in the last 15

years and it's accidents that we are

2:25:402:25:47

not aware of before. But then, are

satellites that we monitor from,

2:25:472:25:54

it's about 50 years, we don't know

what happened before the 60s but it

2:25:542:25:58

can be linked to climate change,

this is why we go and take as many

2:25:582:26:02

samples as we can to see if it's

linked or not.

You have a massive

2:26:022:26:06

iceberg on the loose, where is it

going to and is it dangerous?

No. I

2:26:062:26:12

would not say it is dangerous, as

long as we do not go with our ships

2:26:122:26:17

and helicopter burst in and tried to

reach it. It will go with the water

2:26:172:26:24

current, in a clockwise position, it

will drift with the current ad of

2:26:242:26:29

the Antarctic, it will start

breaking into smaller units, that's

2:26:292:26:33

what we expect. It will go off to

South Georgia, the island with the

2:26:332:26:36

Penguins and they were will not be

dangerous, it will be in the area

2:26:362:26:41

and it will disintegrate over

time... How long? Might relate to a

2:26:412:26:47

little bit of sea level rise but

only in terms of managers.

It is

2:26:472:26:51

fascinating, we wish you all the

best, will you come back and tell us

2:26:512:26:55

what you found? I hope so. Please

do. Thank you so much. It is a 20

2:26:552:27:01

2:30:242:30:27

For now.

2:30:272:30:29

Hello, this is Breakfast

with Dan and Louise.

2:30:372:30:41

Senior officials at Oxfam will today

try to convince the International

2:30:412:30:43

Development Secretary

that they should keep

2:30:432:30:45

their millions of pounds a year

in Government funding.

2:30:452:30:47

It's after revelations that aid

workers used prostitutes in Haiti.

2:30:472:30:52

The charity's been accused

of concealing the full findings

2:30:522:30:56

of an investigation in 2011,

which led to four people being

2:30:562:30:59

sacked and three others resigning.

2:30:592:31:02

Oxfam denies claims of a cover-up.

2:31:022:31:06

In the last hour, the head

of investigations at

2:31:062:31:07

the Charity Commission insisted

there was no place in the sector

2:31:072:31:10

for this kind of behaviour.

2:31:102:31:14

It wasn't dismissed back then, we

held Oxfam to account in terms of

2:31:142:31:18

ensuring they were investigating it

and, as you know, it led to the

2:31:182:31:23

dismissal of staff and resignations,

so it was investigated and dealt

2:31:232:31:28

with. But the more important thing

now is that there is complete

2:31:282:31:32

openness and transparency not just

in Oxfam but in terms of other

2:31:322:31:37

charities, and that there is a call

to leadership in the sector about

2:31:372:31:41

the culture in which they wish to

promote in the charity sector. We do

2:31:412:31:45

not want public trust and confidence

in charities rocked by this.

2:31:452:31:51

Three British tourists have been

killed in a helicopter crash

2:31:512:31:53

in the United States.

2:31:532:31:55

It happened on a sightseeing trip

in the Grand Canyon.

2:31:552:31:57

They've been named by police

in Arizona as 27-year-old

2:31:572:31:59

Becky Dobson, Jason Hill,

who was 32, and

2:31:592:32:01

30-year-old Stuart Hill.

2:32:012:32:02

Three other British nationals

and the pilot were injured.

2:32:022:32:08

Our first responders had a 20 minute

hike, 20 minute hike,

2:32:082:32:10

to get to the scene.

2:32:102:32:12

They were right on...

2:32:122:32:17

We were notified of the crash

at 5.40, and first responders

2:32:172:32:20

were on the scene within

the first 30 minutes.

2:32:202:32:23

And we attribute that quick response

to what helped save lives.

2:32:232:32:28

Russian investigators are searching

fields near Moscow for clues to find

2:32:282:32:31

out why a passenger plane crashed,

killing all 71 people on board.

2:32:312:32:36

The Saratov Airlines jet went down

just a few minutes after taking off

2:32:362:32:39

yesterday afternoon.

2:32:392:32:41

Officials say they are

considering weather conditions,

2:32:412:32:45

human error and technical failure

as possible causes, but

2:32:452:32:47

they did not mention

the possibility of terrorism.

2:32:472:32:52

Theresa May and the Irish Prime

Minister, Leo Varadkar,

2:32:522:32:54

are to visit Belfast today for talks

with Northern Ireland's

2:32:542:32:57

main parties.

2:32:572:33:01

There are growing indications a deal

is close that would see devolved

2:33:012:33:04

Government restored.

2:33:042:33:05

Northern Ireland has been run

by civil servants since the power

2:33:052:33:11

sharing agreement between Sinn Fein

and the DUP collapsed last January.

2:33:112:33:14

South Africa's governing party,

the ANC, says the fate

2:33:142:33:16

of President Zuma will be decided

within 24 hours.

2:33:162:33:19

There is mounting pressure

for him to stand down,

2:33:192:33:21

following allegations of corruption.

2:33:212:33:25

Speaking at a rally in Cape Town,

the leader of the ANC,

2:33:252:33:30

Cyril Ramaphosa said the key aim

of any transition of power

2:33:302:33:32

was to unite South Africans.

2:33:322:33:35

Parents should take their children

to see a pharmacist if they only

2:33:352:33:38

have a minor illness.

2:33:382:33:39

That's the message of

a new health campaign.

2:33:392:33:45

NHS England says easily-treated

conditions are adding

2:33:452:33:53

to the pressure on GP surgeries

and A&E departments,

2:33:542:33:56

and going to the pharmacy

could save the health service

2:33:562:33:58

£850-million a year.

2:33:582:33:59

Kensington Palace has announced more

details about the wedding

2:33:592:34:01

of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle

at Windsor Castle on

2:34:012:34:04

the 19th May.

2:34:042:34:06

The service, in St George's Chapel,

will begin at midday,

2:34:062:34:08

which means it is unlikely to clash

with the FA Cup Final.

2:34:082:34:11

It's been confirmed

that the Archbishop of Canterbury

2:34:112:34:13

will marry the couple,

and that the Dean of Windsor

2:34:132:34:16

will conduct the service.

2:34:162:34:17

800 guests will be there.

2:34:172:34:18

The newlyweds will then embark

on a short carriage procession

2:34:182:34:22

around Windsor at 1pm.

2:34:222:34:28

What time is kick-off normally?

Around 5pm?

2:34:282:34:33

Yes, it should be all right. 800

guests is an awful lot, isn't it?!

2:34:332:34:39

I don't think I have 800 friends!

I'm not sure I have 100!

2:34:392:34:45

Coming up here on Breakfast

this morning...

2:34:452:34:50

My job is like a headmistress to

say, off you go, the next category

2:34:502:34:54

is...

2:34:542:34:59

She'll be hoping she can keep

order at the Baftas -

2:34:592:35:02

Joanna Lumley speaks to Naga ahead

of her hosting duties about taking

2:35:022:35:05

over from Stephen Fry.

2:35:052:35:06

A seemingly random act of violence,

a member of the shadow cabinet

2:35:062:35:09

and a race against time to get

to the truth - we'll speak

2:35:092:35:15

to Nathaniel Martello-White, who's

starring alongside Carey Mulligan

2:35:152:35:17

in the BBC's latest crime thriller.

2:35:172:35:20

Are not scared of my disadvantage,

nothing will get in my way in

2:35:202:35:24

getting to my goal, but there will

be setbacks, but you've just got to

2:35:242:35:30

get up and dust yourself off and

keep on going.

2:35:302:35:34

The kids fighting for a better life

- we'll speak to two of the stars

2:35:342:35:37

of a new BBC series,

which follows six gifted children

2:35:372:35:40

from low-income backgrounds

as they try to follow their dreams.

2:35:402:35:48

Let's talk Winter Olympics, because

Team GB's Amy Fuller has been

2:35:492:35:53

competing in the slopestyle in the

last few hours in very, very

2:35:532:35:57

difficult conditions, but just to

give you an idea of what slopestyle

2:35:572:36:00

involves, here is a little guide.

It is essentially an obstacle course

2:36:002:36:05

for snowboarders, they navigate a

variety of rails and jobs.

2:36:052:36:10

Competitors are scored on the

quality of their tricks, including

2:36:102:36:13

spins and flips. It is a relatively

new sport, only became part of the

2:36:132:36:18

Winter Olympics in 2014 in Sochi.

So how did Amy get on? Cat is in

2:36:182:36:25

Pyeongchang for us this morning, and

it really was something to watch as

2:36:252:36:30

the weather conditions affected

things.

2:36:302:36:32

Good morning, yes, we have been

talking a lot about the weather

2:36:322:36:35

conditions here because we British,

after all, but it is not just the

2:36:352:36:39

cold that has been grabbing the

headlines, -26 today at the

2:36:392:36:44

slopestyle course. It was also the

wind, causing real problems. The

2:36:442:36:49

men's downhill was postponed

yesterday, the women's slopestyle

2:36:492:36:53

final, featuring Great Britain's Amy

Fuller, did go ahead and I'm pleased

2:36:532:36:57

to say Amy survived despite the

incredibly tough conditions, and is

2:36:572:37:09

standing right next to me now here

in Pyeongchang.

It was like you were

2:37:092:37:12

fighting the course and the wind all

the way down, tell us what it was

2:37:122:37:15

like competing in those costs? Today

was probably one of the toughest

2:37:152:37:18

days I have had on my snowboard in

competition. The wind played a huge

2:37:182:37:20

factor, so much so on my first run I

did not even hit the second jump, I

2:37:202:37:24

had to pull out, it was like riding

into a windfall tax, it was crazy,

2:37:242:37:30

so I decided to play it safe and not

risk my life going into the first

2:37:302:37:37

run, then the second run, it is the

Olympics, the final, I wanted to

2:37:372:37:41

give it everything I had. I felt

strong on my board and managed to

2:37:412:37:46

have enough speed to clear jump two,

going into jump three, I gave it

2:37:462:37:50

absolutely everything. I was in the

air, felt OK on take-off, then

2:37:502:37:55

coming around I could literally...

You may as well have attached a sale

2:37:552:38:00

to my snowboard, it just took me,

there was not a chance I was going

2:38:002:38:03

to land. How are you feeling after

the crash, it looks like a tough

2:38:032:38:09

landing? Absolutely devastated, I

was so close, but I just really feel

2:38:092:38:14

like it did not demonstrate our

sport at the highest level that it

2:38:142:38:19

should be seen at. Our sport is so

young, it is fast, exciting, it is a

2:38:192:38:27

developing sport, and I'm not only

devastated but I am also a bit sore.

2:38:272:38:30

I took a pretty heavy slam on the

last run, and it was literally the

2:38:302:38:35

wind, there was nothing I could do.

I laid all my cards on the table

2:38:352:38:42

and, dare, it is just the look of

the draw, unfortunately, but I never

2:38:422:38:45

thought riding in the finals, things

such as the wind would a huge factor

2:38:452:38:54

in my result, so, Jack devastated.

17th, though, really not that bad

2:38:542:38:58

but you were expecting better?

Yeah,

I am not happy with that at all, I

2:38:582:39:04

think if I had managed to pull

through and not be swept off my feet

2:39:042:39:10

I felt strong and confident on my

snowboard, I have been on my board a

2:39:102:39:15

lot the last few months and was

really excited for today. I'm

2:39:152:39:19

gutted, not by any means happy with

that result, which only drives me

2:39:192:39:23

more going to head into next week's

big air.

What was the feeling among

2:39:232:39:29

your fellow competitors, and you as

well, would you have said it was too

2:39:292:39:32

dangerous or was it just that you

did not get the chance because of

2:39:322:39:36

the conditions? Because the

organisers made the call for it to

2:39:362:39:39

go ahead, you did not showcase the

best of your sport, do you think

2:39:392:39:43

there was an element where it should

not have happened because of the

2:39:432:39:47

danger?

I feel it did not

demonstrate our sport to its level

2:39:472:39:50

by any means. There was a rumour

that it was going to be polled after

2:39:502:39:57

the first run, that is what they

told us before it started, they

2:39:572:40:00

said, there is a window but in the

forecast is 55 mark that our wins

2:40:002:40:04

for the next two days so we either

go now and risk it, but there was

2:40:042:40:08

not much discussion, it was kind of

just, you are on in 15 minutes, it

2:40:082:40:14

is live, it is the Olympics, on TV,

everyone is watching, there was not

2:40:142:40:19

really much said. One of my good

friend said something in the tent at

2:40:192:40:24

the top, she was like, this isn't

good, we shouldn't go. One of the

2:40:242:40:29

girls who did very well spoken very

strongly about the fact that it

2:40:292:40:35

should run, but the conditions were

definitely unstable, unfavourable

2:40:352:40:42

and, yeah, I'm not going to say any

more!

That was pretty strong, Aimee!

2:40:422:40:47

You have got the big air coming up

so a chance may be to turn things

2:40:472:40:52

around what are your prospects in

that competition?

I'm hoping the

2:40:522:40:59

Pyeongchang gust disappears! As you

can see now it is so windy. I'm

2:40:592:41:03

hoping for a final result, I'm

looking for, that is what I am

2:41:032:41:09

aiming for, I've been working hard,

straight after Christmas I was in

2:41:092:41:13

Canada, -39 there so I was prepared

for the cold, maybe not the wind,

2:41:132:41:16

but the cold! I'm looking, along

with the rest of my team, we will be

2:41:162:41:22

missing Katie, which is really

unfortunate so we sent our well

2:41:222:41:26

wishes to her, but we are going to

go out there has a strong squad and

2:41:262:41:31

the best we can, and we are going to

stick together and get this one and

2:41:312:41:36

make you all at home proud because

the support has been absolutely

2:41:362:41:40

unreal and I cannot thank you all

enough, especially with the time

2:41:402:41:44

difference, everyone has been

getting a bad I think for 30 AM

2:41:442:41:48

yesterday it was cancelled, and

today 1:30am, at 2am, and for people

2:41:482:41:53

going into work, we really

appreciate the support, so let's

2:41:532:41:56

bring it home for Team GB.

When is

the big air?

The 19th of the girls,

2:41:562:42:02

I think the day before for the boys,

so stay tuned and I'm sure Team GB

2:42:022:42:06

will update you as well as the BBC

on the schedule!

Aimee has done my

2:42:062:42:15

job for me! Big air coming up later

on in the games, Team GB going for

2:42:152:42:20

glory there.

Good luck to her, we shall look

2:42:202:42:22

forward to it, thanks both.

Live coverage of the Winter Olympics

2:42:222:42:27

continues on BBC One straight after

us, you don't have to go anywhere.

2:42:272:42:29

Shall we just stay here and watch?

You genuinely will be, she won't be

2:42:292:42:34

going anywhere today!

2:42:342:42:36

First Henry Blofeld retired

from Test Match Special,

2:42:362:42:38

then John Motson announced

he was hanging up

2:42:382:42:40

his sheepskin coat.

2:42:402:42:41

Now rugby union has become

the latest sport to lose

2:42:412:42:43

one of its most beloved

and distinctive voices.

2:42:432:42:47

After a BBC career spanning

nearly half a century,

2:42:472:42:49

Ian Robertson is to step out

of the commentary box

2:42:492:42:51

at the end of this year.

2:42:512:42:53

We'll speak to Ian in a moment,

but first let's hear him in action

2:42:532:42:56

from Saturday's Six Nations match

between England and Wales for 5Live.

2:42:562:43:02

But they had this one last chance,

Calum Wyn Jones wins the line-out,

2:43:022:43:06

they have now got to move it away,

they are only 30 minutes from their

2:43:062:43:12

goal-line. All power and strength

there, going forward, they are up

2:43:122:43:18

now, coming almost to the ten metre

line. Knocked on, the referee plays

2:43:182:43:25

the advantage, and the advantage

will simply be watching

2:43:252:43:32

Wigglesworth, it is not

Wigglesworth, Pharrell kicks it up

2:43:322:43:36

into Dutch, into our commentary box!

And that is the final whistle and

2:43:362:43:42

England have won.

The ball landed

right beside you on Saturday?!

All

2:43:422:43:48

prearranged! Wigglesworth does stuff

with Radio 5 Live so I said, if you

2:43:482:43:55

get on at the end, kick it into the

box, and it came right into the box,

2:43:552:43:59

I dropped it.

Lovely to have you

with us, many people this morning

2:43:592:44:02

being in contact to say they cannot

believe you are going, they have

2:44:022:44:05

enjoyed listening to you. Many

years. Why make the decision?

It is

2:44:052:44:10

a good time to go, I have spoken to

John Watson and Henry Blofeld and

2:44:102:44:14

said, how do you know? They said,

you know when it is time to go and I

2:44:142:44:19

had that feeling as well. The

November internationals, South

2:44:192:44:24

Africa, the first time I went on a

major tour with the 74 miles, I went

2:44:242:44:30

out at the end, that was a brilliant

trip, and that test in the autumn,

2:44:302:44:36

for the first time in four years

England played New Zealand at

2:44:362:44:40

Twickenham, a massive match, then

the final test in the autumn series

2:44:402:44:44

is England against Australia and I

have done one good commentary in 46

2:44:442:44:49

years for the BBC and that is a

reprise of England Australia in 2003

2:44:492:44:52

World Cup.

Have you got, looking

back, any particular standout

2:44:522:44:59

moments? There will be lots but can

you choose a few?

I-mate upset the

2:44:592:45:05

whole nation of England but my

favourite moment was a match at

2:45:052:45:11

Wembley which was England against

Wales and funnily enough a home game

2:45:112:45:15

for Wales but they were rebuilding

the Millennium Stadium so they used

2:45:152:45:19

Wembley as their home match and

right at the end Lawrence Dallaglio

2:45:192:45:24

had the chance, captain of England,

there was a kick in front of the

2:45:242:45:29

posts and they were leading by six

points, if that had gone over that

2:45:292:45:33

was the end of it, but being bowled

they went for touch, kicked a touch

2:45:332:45:38

instead, they were penalised, the

ball was rooted Downfield to the

2:45:382:45:42

halfway line and then further, and

then another line-out won by Wales

2:45:422:45:46

and Scott Gibbs got it, crashed

through, they had a 6-point margin

2:45:462:45:53

in their favour, England, last

seconds of the game, crashed

2:45:532:45:55

through, beat several players, and

as he went through to school, my

2:45:552:45:58

commentary on this game was, and

Scott Gibbs has scored the try

2:45:582:46:04

which, with the convergent Apollo,

means that Scotland will be the five

2:46:042:46:08

patients champions this year and

forever more! It was the last ever

2:46:082:46:13

five Nations match, Italy joined the

next year, and I got a lot of stick

2:46:132:46:19

at the Christmas party, on the

outtakes every Christmas, here we

2:46:192:46:23

go, and Scotland become the five

Nations champion!

2:46:232:46:30

You mention 2003, four rights

reasons we can't play your

2:46:302:46:33

commentary, but lots of people, and

I know many Scots set to you, why

2:46:332:46:38

were you so happy? There was a

reason you were so happy when you

2:46:382:46:42

commentated on that.

I was very

happy for Jonny Wilkinson, I'm an

2:46:422:46:46

very good terms with him. But also a

few months before, actually more

2:46:462:46:50

than a year before the World Cup, I

was chatting with Lawrence Dallaglio

2:46:502:46:54

and Jason learn on. We went through

all of the main teams and we worked

2:46:542:47:00

out that England should be the

favourites for the World Cup, they

2:47:002:47:03

had the best track record at that

time. They were building the team

2:47:032:47:05

and they would only get better. But

the bookies were offering 20-1

2:47:052:47:09

against England. So I went in and

had a little tickle on that with

2:47:092:47:14

Ladbrokes. So, as the ball went

over, I was very happy, I picked up

2:47:142:47:19

a few quid and had Mike Powell

Johnny Wilson is dropping the

2:47:192:47:25

winning goal -- I had Mike Powell.

You mention him, a message for you.

2:47:252:47:31

Happy retirement for you, thanks for

all your efforts, it's been great

2:47:312:47:36

meeting up with you and chatting

rugby and sharing a lot of

2:47:362:47:39

experiences. Take care, all the

best, and enjoy the view just up to

2:47:392:47:44

oh, that's so nice!

You must have

had so many messages from people who

2:47:442:47:48

have grown up listening to your

commentary, and then you have

2:47:482:47:52

commentated on them. So many young

commentators have come through with

2:47:522:47:56

you as a hero to them behind the

microphone.

Of course, the real hero

2:47:562:48:00

is the man who coached me at the

very beginning, though McLaren, he

2:48:002:48:04

is the voice of rugby, and the best

commentator that has ever been and

2:48:042:48:08

there ever will be. And I learned

from him. And he was just such an

2:48:082:48:13

amazing commentator. I remember

showing John Watson and Murray

2:48:132:48:17

Walker and Richie Benaud a set of

bill McLaren's notes for a match.

2:48:172:48:23

1200 statistics on a sheet of paper,

and he didn't need it on match day.

2:48:232:48:27

It took him 18 hours to do every

week and he landed off by heart. I

2:48:272:48:31

was just an amateur. I would

squiggle things down, not in the

2:48:312:48:35

same league. But I've enjoyed every

moment of it. I remember John Watson

2:48:352:48:41

saying, I thought I was well

prepared for a match, but this was

2:48:412:48:44

incredible. It was just a big

2:48:442:48:51

incredible. It was just a big sheet

and everything was on there. Every

2:48:542:48:55

player got four bind in black, red,

blue and green. Each line had eight

2:48:552:48:58

statistics, he knew which went into

which line. He said, if a player is

2:48:582:49:02

injured, I can talk about him for

five minutes. I can talk for five

2:49:022:49:06

minutes, but with less detail!

Thank

you very much for coming in to talk

2:49:062:49:10

to us. We will look forward to the

next time we can listen to you.

I

2:49:102:49:14

will be back in November, the last

time I will do the six Nations. I

2:49:142:49:21

thought that Dan would bring up the

wealth- Scotland much!

-- the Wales-

2:49:212:49:27

Scotland much. Lovely to see you.

2:49:272:49:31

Here's Matt with a look

at this morning's weather.

2:49:312:49:33

Here's Matt with a look

at this morning's weather.

2:49:332:49:37

Thanks, Dan. Good morning from

Wisley Gardens in Surrey. It's been

2:49:372:49:43

a lovely morning here. A cold start

with frost on the ground across the

2:49:432:49:48

UK this Monday morning. Let's look

at the details. We start with a

2:49:482:49:52

widespread frost but quite a

pleasant day in store, a pleasant

2:49:522:49:56

winter's day for many, central and

eastern areas seeing lots of

2:49:562:49:59

sunshine throughout, but dealt some

snow showers around. Those have been

2:49:592:50:04

across Scotland, Northern Ireland

and northern England in particular,

2:50:042:50:07

giving a further dusting of snow in

places, slippy conditions here and

2:50:072:50:12

there. Towards the south-west of the

UK, the showers of rain, hail and

2:50:122:50:17

sleep and a little bit of hill snow.

The wind not quite as strong as it

2:50:172:50:22

was. The showers are not making it

further eastwards, the East. Dry

2:50:222:50:28

with sunshine. But in the western

areas, we continue to see showers.

2:50:282:50:32

But fewer in number than you know,

but still enough to give a covering

2:50:322:50:36

of snow on the ground, a centimetre

or two is not a bit more in western

2:50:362:50:41

Scotland in particular. The

temperatures up a notch on

2:50:412:50:45

yesterday, still a chilly day. You

can feel the strength of the sun

2:50:452:50:50

gaining day by day. With light

winds, it might not feel quite as

2:50:502:50:55

chilly. It will stay chilly as soon

as we lose the sun this evening and

2:50:552:51:00

overnight, frost developing,

continuing into the morning across

2:51:002:51:02

the East. But to the West through

tonight we will see cloud and rain

2:51:022:51:07

spread its way in, turning to snow

across the hills of northern Ireland

2:51:072:51:11

and even lower levels at times.

Scotland and northern England,

2:51:112:51:16

significant snowfall expected into

Tuesday morning rush hour. This is

2:51:162:51:19

where we could see up to ten

centimetres on the higher ground.

2:51:192:51:22

Even lower levels, snow could cause

problems for the morning rush hour.

2:51:222:51:26

A mixture of cloud, wind, rain,

sleet, snow, across many northern

2:51:262:51:32

and western areas tomorrow, pushing

its way eastwards.

2:51:322:51:39

its way eastwards. Winds touching

gale force for some of you. But

2:51:392:51:41

brightens up towards the West on

Tuesday afternoon, with some

2:51:412:51:43

sunshine around, and still just one

or two Winter is showers in western

2:51:432:51:46

Scotland. Temperatures much as

today's values, but stronger winds

2:51:462:51:49

and a lot more cloud around, it will

feel fairly chilly. To get us into

2:51:492:51:55

Wednesday, frost and is the big

story through Tuesday night.

2:51:552:51:59

Wednesday we start off with

brightness in the East. Outbreaks of

2:51:592:52:04

rain and drizzle, not quite as

chilly a day, temperatures in double

2:52:042:52:08

figures towards the south-west, in

11 degrees possible. Any snow will

2:52:082:52:11

be limited to the higher ground of

northern England and Scotland. Into

2:52:112:52:16

Thursday, cloud and rain, clears

away from the south-east, lots of

2:52:162:52:20

sunshine around. A few showers in

the north and west. Things turn

2:52:202:52:23

milder in the midweek. Cold and

bright for many. Enjoy.

2:52:232:52:29

STUDIO: We will wrap up tight.

Thanks very much, Matt.

2:52:292:52:35

She's one of our best-loved stars,

who's been in everything

2:52:352:52:37

from Paddington two

to Absolutely Fabulous .

2:52:372:52:39

But on Sunday, Joanna Lumley

takes on a new role.

2:52:392:52:41

She's taking over from

Stephen Fry as the host

2:52:412:52:43

of the Bafta Film Awards.

2:52:432:52:45

Naga caught up with her to find

out how she was feeling

2:52:452:52:47

ahead of the big event.

2:52:472:52:49

Joanna Lumley, thank

you so much for talking to us.

2:52:492:52:51

Oh, it's a pleasure to be here.

2:52:512:52:53

An absolute pleasure to have you.

2:52:532:52:54

How excited are you about

presenting the Baftas?

2:52:542:52:56

So excited and thrilled.

2:52:562:52:57

It was just such an honour to be

asked, and I said yes

2:52:572:53:00

with a beating heart thinking,

God...

2:53:002:53:02

I rang up Stephen Fry at once,

who's a friend mine anyway.

2:53:022:53:05

Thank you...

2:53:052:53:06

He said, I'm thrilled.

2:53:062:53:07

All you've got to do is remember

first of all that nobody ever

2:53:072:53:10

complained that an award ceremony

is too short.

2:53:102:53:13

And then the second thing is to keep

it up in the air, keep it tight,

2:53:132:53:17

keep it entertaining

and keep it light.

2:53:172:53:19

And as my job is just

to be a host...

2:53:192:53:21

Really, first of all,

you say, "hello, welcome,

2:53:212:53:23

I'm really happy to be here,

blah, blah, blah".

2:53:232:53:26

Then you say, "and to present

the first award"...

2:53:262:53:28

On come two massive

movie stars or whatever.

2:53:282:53:30

And then they have the things,

we see the stuff, they read it out.

2:53:302:53:34

So they really do all that.

2:53:342:53:36

And then my job is like

a headmistress to say, "off you go,

2:53:362:53:39

the next category is"...

2:53:392:53:40

So, I'm looking forward to it.

2:53:402:53:41

Stephen Fry, though,

even they you say the role isn't

2:53:412:53:44

as big as perhaps the movie stars

who are presenting the actual

2:53:442:53:47

awards, Stephen Fry's

always made it his own.

2:53:472:53:49

He's always...

2:53:492:53:50

Oh, don't say that!

2:53:502:53:55

Because now it's not mine!

2:53:552:53:56

Stephen, give me it!

2:53:562:53:57

No, he's given it to you,

it's all yours, he's happy,

2:53:572:54:00

as you say, he's happy

for you to have it.

2:54:002:54:02

Of course I will, of course.

2:54:022:54:03

That everyone will be

expecting you to put your...

2:54:032:54:06

But it's only me, people know me,

people who have seen

2:54:062:54:08

me on television know

who I am, you know?

2:54:082:54:10

So, I'm not suddenly

going to become a satirist

2:54:102:54:13

or a stand-up comic or anything.

2:54:132:54:14

So, what are you going

to bring to it?

2:54:142:54:16

Watch do you think?

2:54:162:54:17

What is that Joanna Lumley touch?

2:54:172:54:19

I'm going to bring a dress!

2:54:192:54:20

Have you chosen it already?

2:54:202:54:21

Yes, of course.

2:54:212:54:22

Any hints?

2:54:222:54:23

Yes, Betty Jackson's

making it for me.

2:54:232:54:25

She's retired, but she's come out

of retirement for me to make

2:54:252:54:28

this fabulous dress.

2:54:282:54:29

She did all Patsy's

clothes in Ab Fab.

2:54:292:54:31

And then years ago,

before you were born,

2:54:312:54:33

there was a show called

The New Avengers.

2:54:332:54:35

And she was very, very

new and young then, and she made

2:54:352:54:38

clothes for that for me.

2:54:382:54:39

What colour is it going to be?

2:54:392:54:40

Black.

2:54:402:54:42

And the reason I ask, of course,

is the whole idea of women

2:54:422:54:45

wearing black as part

of the Me Too movement.

2:54:452:54:47

Well, I've just seen

the Golden Globes.

2:54:472:54:48

And I'd got...

2:54:482:54:50

I mean, I knew I had the gig

long before Christmas.

2:54:502:54:52

But when the Golden Globes came,

and I saw all the women

2:54:522:54:55

wearing black, I thought,

I'll take a note from this,

2:54:552:54:57

because if they wear black and I've

decided to wear shocking pink,

2:54:572:55:00

it would look awful.

2:55:002:55:01

So maybe just to be

safe I'll wear black.

2:55:012:55:04

Anyway, as a host, Stephen as a man

wore black because it was black tie.

2:55:042:55:07

And it wouldn't look

extraordinary if I wore black,

2:55:072:55:09

even if everybody wore colours,

it would look normal

2:55:092:55:11

for me to wear black.

2:55:112:55:13

But if I didn't wear black

and everybody was wearing black,

2:55:132:55:15

I'd better wear black,

do you know what I mean?

2:55:152:55:18

So I chose black.

2:55:182:55:19

Watch do you think of the campaign

to wear black to represent

2:55:192:55:22

women standing up against

inequality and harassment?

2:55:222:55:23

Do you know, I think, because it

combines a whole lot of things.

2:55:232:55:26

First of all it combines,

in the Royal Albert Hall,

2:55:262:55:29

the 100 years that the suffragettes

signed the thing.

2:55:292:55:31

So that, you know, people over 30

with a certain standing in life,

2:55:312:55:34

so it wasn't all women,

but nevertheless, they could get

2:55:342:55:37

the vote for the first time.

2:55:372:55:38

And so that hugely powerful

and strong wonderful campaign

2:55:382:55:40

bounced on three people,

women being allowed to work

2:55:402:55:42

in munitions factories or fight

in the war and things like this.

2:55:422:55:45

And now bouncing off this,

the Time's Up think.

2:55:452:55:47

And I hope this is now opening

windows and flooding like into every

2:55:472:55:50

part of our industry

and all industries, all professions,

2:55:502:55:53

so that we can now look forward

into the outer world,

2:55:532:55:56

the greater world, to the wider

countries and cultures where women

2:55:562:55:59

are appallingly treated.

2:55:592:56:01

Where they are really

abused and marginalised.

2:56:012:56:05

And so I love the idea that this

great strength is that,

2:56:052:56:13

it's not only women,

but men too, and looking

2:56:152:56:19

forward, and the injuries

2:56:192:56:20

to women in the greater world.

2:56:202:56:21

So, this is terrific.

2:56:212:56:22

Have you ever been a victim

or made to feel a victim?

2:56:222:56:25

No, I haven't.

2:56:252:56:26

And I think I'm probably

not victim material.

2:56:262:56:28

A, I'm quite tall, and B,

I'm quite outspoken.

2:56:282:56:30

I laugh a lot, means that quite

a lot of victim-type things,

2:56:302:56:33

if you laugh, it stops being quite

so sort of, thingy,

2:56:332:56:36

you know what I mean?

2:56:362:56:37

Let's talk about a film that you're

in, Finding Your Feet.

2:56:372:56:40

How did your internet

date go at the weekend?

2:56:402:56:42

Well, let's just say I got more

than I bargained for.

2:56:422:56:45

Lucky you!

2:56:452:56:46

No, he showed up

with his wife in tow.

2:56:462:56:48

Turns out I clicked 'swinging'

instead of 'swimming'

2:56:482:56:50

on my list of likes.

2:56:502:56:53

It's sweet, it's a darling film,

and it's a lovely late-flowering

2:56:532:56:55

love story, unexpected love story,

a family abrasive thing

2:56:552:56:58

which is resolved.

2:56:582:57:03

And all of it's set

against the backdrop of a senior

2:57:032:57:06

citizens' dance class,

which is great, which is adorable.

2:57:062:57:11

And of course, people will have

seen it on Strictly.

2:57:112:57:13

I mean, you don't have too have seen

Strictly and people are kind

2:57:132:57:16

of reeling away from that.

2:57:162:57:17

The audiences watch it.

2:57:172:57:18

The people who's been

in it, you've met them,

2:57:182:57:20

are bewitched by dance,

they can't stop dancing,

2:57:202:57:22

they adore it.

2:57:222:57:23

So, the great thing about this

is that we're hoping that maybe

2:57:232:57:26

older people will get out and...

2:57:262:57:28

Cure their loneliness

and their inability

2:57:282:57:29

by going to dance classes.

2:57:292:57:36

-- and their immobility.

2:57:362:57:37

Maybe it'll work.

2:57:372:57:39

I hope it does, because we all

absolutely adored it.

2:57:392:57:41

We've been talent-spotted.

2:57:412:57:42

We're going to Rome, city of lovers.

2:57:422:57:44

Would you be first up

on the dancefloor at a party?

2:57:442:57:46

No, because my husband won't dance.

2:57:462:57:48

Ah, you don't have

to dance with him!

2:57:482:57:50

No...

2:57:502:57:51

That's an idea!

2:57:512:57:52

No, of course I do!

2:57:522:57:53

I dance, but I don't go

too many dance parties.

2:57:532:57:56

Do you think the film

industry is making enough

2:57:562:57:58

about the so-called grey pound?

2:57:582:57:59

You know, we talk about

the pink pound, we talk

2:57:592:58:01

about the youth pound.

2:58:012:58:02

We talk about the grey pound now,

appealing to older generations

2:58:022:58:05

of watchers and actors.

2:58:052:58:06

Well, this is quite hard, you know?

2:58:062:58:11

If you think back to great movies,

Hollywood movies, the ones that

2:58:112:58:15

have become legendary,

Turner classic movies, the old ones,

2:58:152:58:18

practically none of them

are about older people.

2:58:182:58:21

So, suddenly to say,

we've got to have lots of films

2:58:212:58:24

about old people is odd.

2:58:242:58:25

Old people, which is me, I'm 71,

so I'm an old person,

2:58:252:58:28

I'm a pensioner, so I'm the grey

pound, I don't think,

2:58:282:58:31

oh, I want to watch

films about old people.

2:58:312:58:33

I mean, also, as a woman,

I don't read women's

2:58:332:58:36

magazines, I read magazines

that are interesting.

2:58:362:58:38

They might be about

architecture or engineering.

2:58:382:58:40

I don't go, oh, I'm a woman,

I'd better do woman things.

2:58:402:58:43

And so, this idea that kind

of people who are old,

2:58:432:58:47

or people who are young,

must only be interested in a certain

2:58:472:58:50

thing, I find it a bit...

2:58:502:58:52

It jangles me a bit.

2:58:522:58:55

So, I mean the idea...

2:58:552:58:57

I've worked in theatres a lot,

we love "the grey pound" coming,

2:58:572:59:01

because when they sit in a show,

they listen to all the words.

2:59:012:59:04

They don't check their phones.

2:59:042:59:05

They watch the play.

2:59:052:59:08

So, hurrah for the grey pound!

2:59:082:59:09

Hurrah for old people like me!

2:59:092:59:13

I wish you all the best

with the Baftas.

2:59:132:59:15

Thank you very much indeed.

2:59:152:59:16

Thank you so much for talking to us.

2:59:162:59:18

It was a pleasure talking

to you, thank you.

2:59:182:59:20

The Baftas are on BBC One

this Sunday at 9pm.

2:59:202:59:23

I love that.

She's very showbiz,

isn't she?!

I love Joanna Lumley.

2:59:232:59:34

I'll obviously be watching it.

2:59:342:59:40

Coming from a disadvantaged

background halves your chance

2:59:402:59:42

of getting the top grades at GCSE,

and only one-in-eight children

2:59:422:59:45

from low-income families are likely

to go on to become high-earners

2:59:452:59:47

as adults.

2:59:472:59:49

So these stark statistics are behind

a new BBC series which will follow

2:59:492:59:53

the progress of six gifted but

underprivileged people is over three

2:59:532:59:57

years. We will speak to a couple of

them in a moment as they tried to

2:59:573:00:00

follow their dreams a look.

3:00:003:00:02

Here is my room.

3:00:023:00:04

Mine and my sister's

room, more like.

3:00:043:00:08

Here is my clothes.

3:00:083:00:10

Well, kind of everybody's clothes.

3:00:103:00:14

Here's the bed, which takes

up half of the room.

3:00:143:00:16

Destiny sleeps there.

3:00:163:00:18

And I sleep over here.

3:00:183:00:24

My sister's put her foot in my face,

it's really annoying,

3:00:243:00:30

so I tell Mum I can't...

3:00:303:00:32

No more, I need my space.

3:00:323:00:33

My goals are to get good GCSEs,

to get into the best university

3:00:333:00:37

and to become a paediatrician...

3:00:373:00:41

That's my dream.

3:00:413:00:48

We're now joined by Jada,

who was in the clip you saw there,

3:00:483:00:51

as well as fellow student Liam,

and teachers Vic Panjanaden

3:00:513:00:54

and Chris Boyce.

3:00:543:01:00

Welcome all. Liam, let's start with

you, we heard from Jada in the clip

3:01:003:01:05

there. Is it weird to watch yourself

on television knowing that people

3:01:053:01:08

are thinking about your background

and what you want to do with your

3:01:083:01:11

life?

Yeah, definitely weird, never

thought I would see myself on TV, to

3:01:113:01:18

be honest!

Originally you wanted to

be a chef but now you are thinking

3:01:183:01:22

about being a doctor, what brought

about the change?

A trip that Mr

3:01:223:01:28

Boyce convinced us to go on, a

medical and dentistry day, and when

3:01:283:01:33

we went the medicine really

intrigued us and I got into it a

3:01:333:01:36

lot, so I have kind of changed my

mind of what I wanted to be.

The

3:01:363:01:41

concept of this is interesting,

these children are clearly, as it

3:01:413:01:45

says on the programme, gifted. Do

you get frustrated when you see a

3:01:453:01:49

young lad like this, clearly really

bright, but perhaps not able to get

3:01:493:01:55

opportunities that perhaps other

people might?

Absolutely, it is the

3:01:553:01:59

most frustrating thing in the world.

People say our job as teachers is to

3:01:593:02:03

raise aspirations more than anything

else but we want to make sure they

3:02:033:02:07

fill Paul -- feel that potential and

it frustrates us when we feel they

3:02:073:02:11

cannot do that.

So you take them on

trips, do you purposely do that

3:02:113:02:17

because it might make a difference?

Yes, where we come from, we might

3:02:173:02:21

not see people in these jobs, not

people that we know, from our area,

3:02:213:02:25

so I want to make sure they are

exposed to the possibilities of what

3:02:253:02:28

they could do.

We speak to people

all the time on this programme and

3:02:283:02:32

one of the frustrating things is to

see children who could achieve so

3:02:323:02:35

much and don't get there so this

must be quite fulfilling for you to

3:02:353:02:39

be part of a programme where,

hopefully, Jada, you want to be a

3:02:393:02:44

paediatrician, so you are trying to

push children to somewhere they feel

3:02:443:02:48

they can get with their abilities?

Absolutely, and the thing with Jada,

3:02:483:02:53

she is an incredibly driven and

motivated young lady, prepared to

3:02:533:02:56

put in the work, no question about

that. Sometimes I worry that no

3:02:563:03:01

matter how hard she works there will

be other barriers that. Her from

3:03:013:03:06

realising these things. The

evidence, when you

3:03:063:03:15

evidence, when you look at society,

shows that people from more affluent

3:03:163:03:17

backgrounds go on to be more

successful but we are talking about

3:03:173:03:20

people here with exactly the same

academic ability and that is the

3:03:203:03:23

really frustrating thing.

It is

really clear, having watched a bit

3:03:233:03:24

of the programme, you are super

determined, which is a fantastic

3:03:243:03:27

thing to be. Tell us about the

things you find getting in your way?

3:03:273:03:32

I think it is having the time to

juggle revision with your own

3:03:323:03:35

lifestyle because sometimes it is

hard, you want to have a social life

3:03:353:03:39

but you need to remember having the

revision aspect in it and keeping on

3:03:393:03:44

top of revision because any time you

slipped back it affects you and

3:03:443:03:48

sometimes it can be overwhelming

having the amount of revision that

3:03:483:03:51

you need to do to get where you want

to beat, so you have to make

3:03:513:03:56

sacrifices.

It is also important,

watching the programme, you clearly

3:03:563:03:59

loves spending time with your mates,

love the area you grew up in

3:03:593:04:04

wunderbar change, you can still be

you, but also go on to achieve great

3:04:043:04:08

things in life. You loved growing

up, didn't you?

Yes, it has been a

3:04:083:04:17

good experience and everything, I am

proud of where I come from so in the

3:04:173:04:21

future I'll be able to look back and

say where I have come from and show

3:04:213:04:27

how far I have come.

And what do

your friends and family make of your

3:04:273:04:30

ambition to become a doctor?

My mum

is always pleased with whatever I

3:04:303:04:37

want to be, and my grandad was

always hesitant of us being a chef,

3:04:373:04:45

so he is more pleased now that I

have decided to be a doctor!

And

3:04:453:04:49

what about the reaction from your

friends and family? Are they

3:04:493:04:52

impressed by you?

Yeah, they would

say to go for your dream and my

3:04:523:04:57

friends are very supportive of this,

they say, you can do this, my mum

3:04:573:05:02

and my father and my family are

supportive, they say, there is

3:05:023:05:07

nothing stopping you, follow your

dream.

The brilliant thing is this

3:05:073:05:10

programme will follow you, you have

done one year with them and there

3:05:103:05:13

will be the next two years to see

how you do.

3:05:133:05:17

You are year ten at the moment? Good

luck, good luck with the GCSEs when

3:05:173:05:21

you get that. We will follow your

stories as well.

3:05:213:05:23

Generation Gifted starts on BBC Two

at 9pm on Wednesday.

3:05:233:05:28

Two future doctors on the programme.

Anti wonderful teachers as well! We

3:05:293:05:33

should have said thank you to you!

Teachers, doctors, we love you all!

3:05:333:05:39

In a moment, we'll be speaking

to Nathaniel Martello-White,

3:05:393:05:41

who's starring alongside

Carey Mulligan in the BBC's latest

3:05:413:05:43

crime thriller, Collateral.

3:05:433:05:44

But first, a last, brief

look at the headlines

3:05:443:05:46

where you are this morning.

3:05:463:07:20

in London's markets.

3:07:203:07:21

Bye for now.

3:07:213:07:29

You are watching Breakfast. Here is

the plot of a new BBC One drama...

3:07:353:07:39

A pizza delivery driver

is shot dead in a seemingly

3:07:393:07:41

random act of violence,

but all is not what it seems

3:07:413:07:44

in the BBC's new crime

thriller, Collateral.

3:07:443:07:45

Set over four days, the series

follows the investigation to track

3:07:453:07:48

down the killer and uncovers

a darker conspiracy

3:07:483:07:50

behind the attack.

3:07:503:07:51

In a moment, we'll speak

to Nathaniel Martello-White,

3:07:513:07:57

who stars alongside

Carey Mulligan as tenacious

3:07:573:07:59

Detective Sergeant Nathan Bilk.

3:07:593:08:00

But first, let's take a look.

3:08:003:08:01

Shall we just think

this thing through?

3:08:013:08:03

Please.

3:08:033:08:04

Can we?

3:08:043:08:06

Like, normally how you have a body,

then you work out who they are

3:08:063:08:10

and who might want to kill them.

3:08:103:08:11

Yeah?

3:08:113:08:12

That's the procedure.

3:08:123:08:13

If you say so.

3:08:133:08:14

Only, as I understand it,

and let me know if I'm

3:08:143:08:17

going too fast for you,

this time we don't know who's meant

3:08:173:08:20

to have been killed.

3:08:203:08:21

Yes, I'm onto that.

3:08:213:08:22

So, working out why seems more

than normally difficult.

3:08:223:08:24

That's very good.

3:08:243:08:25

You've got your speech ready

for the superintendent.

3:08:253:08:27

Anything to add?

3:08:273:08:28

Nothing.

3:08:283:08:29

You?

3:08:293:08:31

Yeah.

3:08:313:08:33

There's nobody here.

3:08:333:08:35

Nobody except us.

3:08:353:08:36

Why would there be?

3:08:363:08:38

Because these people are Syrian.

3:08:383:08:39

So?

3:08:393:08:41

They're Syrian.

3:08:413:08:42

What I'm asking, where's MI5?

3:08:423:08:43

Where's counterterrorism?

3:08:433:08:44

Where are they?

3:08:443:08:47

Anything of this nature

in the region and they're

3:08:473:08:49

like flies around dead meat,

why aren't they here?

3:08:493:08:52

My guess is they're still in bed.

3:08:523:08:56

Nathaniel joins us now.

3:08:563:09:00

I should have said it is on BBC Two,

isn't it? BBC Two! You can watch it

3:09:003:09:06

on iPlayer as well. Tell us a bit

about these two, their relationship?

3:09:063:09:11

They work well together but there is

a bit of tension?

Underlying

3:09:113:09:16

intention, yeah. I guess it is the

first case that she is my superior

3:09:163:09:20

so we have always worked side by

side on a similar rank and I don't

3:09:203:09:24

think you have any problem with that

at first but then I think we start

3:09:243:09:28

dealing with the case in very

different ways and I think Nathan is

3:09:283:09:32

very buy the book, likes to follow

the whole rule book and Carey's

3:09:323:09:38

character uses more gung ho tactics,

as it were, which create a bit of a

3:09:383:09:43

rift between them.

Drama is such a

huge thing at the moment, people

3:09:433:09:49

talking around a series and getting

into things, McMafia finished at the

3:09:493:09:57

weekend as well, you must get a lot

of scripts, so what stood out about

3:09:573:10:00

this?

I remember reading it on the

overground on my way into Shoreditch

3:10:003:10:04

and being blown away by the world of

it, where one event effects ate very

3:10:043:10:09

different people and, as David Hare

says, you cannot have a feature film

3:10:093:10:13

with eight protagonists but you can

have a TV show with eight

3:10:133:10:16

protagonists. I was just really

struck by the writing. I come from

3:10:163:10:21

the to myself, so I am

3:10:213:10:28

the to myself, so I am used to

dealing with big ideas, big

3:10:283:10:30

conflicts, so this was, yeah, this

fell in line with that.

It is very

3:10:303:10:33

London centric as well, was that

important to you?

Well, I am a

3:10:333:10:38

Londoner, as you can hear from the

accident! I am from south London so

3:10:383:10:41

what was great was getting the car

into the set every day and all the

3:10:413:10:47

unit bases were back Vauxhall...

Exactly, that was really cool. And

3:10:473:10:55

it was great playing a cop as well

because you are going through each

3:10:553:11:00

location like two detectives would

serve me and Carey got to work with

3:11:003:11:03

all of the cast from the beginning

to the end of the chutes and you get

3:11:033:11:07

a weird parallel experience.

When

you are shooting in a big city like

3:11:073:11:12

London, how much harder is it,

logistically, to lock down the areas

3:11:123:11:17

that you are in?

Pretty hard. They

said London is renowned to be hard

3:11:173:11:25

to shoot in which is why a lot shoot

in Liverpool and here in Manchester

3:11:253:11:29

and stuff, but I think we did a

pretty good job of it. The only

3:11:293:11:33

tricky moment was when we had the

attacks halfway through shooting and

3:11:333:11:37

because there are lots of fake

police officers and whatnot we had

3:11:373:11:40

to stand down shooting in case

people were running to ask for

3:11:403:11:45

assistance, and you are like, no,

I'm an actor.

Really?!

Oh, my gosh!

3:11:453:11:52

So we had to stand down shooting

that day.

Tell us a bit about Carey,

3:11:523:11:57

she is a great actor?

Phenomenal, I

call her an acting ninja, just so

3:11:573:12:03

composed, so contained. It was a joy

to work with her. She has a massive

3:12:033:12:08

profile, she has done incredible

work but she is completely humble

3:12:083:12:14

and I come from theatre as well so I

am used to making it about the

3:12:143:12:18

scene, making it playful and in the

moment, and she was really up for

3:12:183:12:23

that.

Recently we have seen you in

gorilla,

3:12:233:12:30

gorilla, and in Kiri as well, some

really hard hitting stuff?

I have

3:12:303:12:34

been lucky because I think a lot of

the material that I am attracting

3:12:343:12:38

is, I don't want of a political, as

it were, but political and

3:12:383:12:42

entertaining. In Guerilla I play a

convict, in this I play a cop, in

3:12:423:12:46

Kiri I played a lawyer, so I am

getting a nice range of characters

3:12:463:12:51

to play but the context feels very

relevant in now and what is going on

3:12:513:12:55

in society.

And you write yourself,

don't you? It has to be curious

3:12:553:13:00

because does it make you more

critical of writing, do you think?

I

3:13:003:13:04

think I'm in quite a privileged

position because, as an actor, I get

3:13:043:13:10

to spy on lots of scripts that are

being written and go into

3:13:103:13:14

production, so I get to see where

the bar is! I don't know if other

3:13:143:13:18

writers get that insight into what

is being made. But it is like a

3:13:183:13:22

figure of eight, each feeds into the

other, really, in which is the

3:13:223:13:26

other.

Thank you so much for coming

on, you can see Nathaniel in

3:13:263:13:32

Collateral on BBC Two tonight at

9pm.

3:13:323:13:35

Lovely to see you, thank you so

much.

3:13:353:13:37

That's it from us this morning.

3:13:373:13:38

We'll be back tomorrow with all

the latest Winter Olympic action.

3:13:383:13:41

I will try to get some sleep!

3:13:413:13:47

Until then, goodbye.
