Hello, this is Breakfast,

with Chris Mason and Rachel Burden.

0:00:040:00:09

The husband of the murdered MP

Jo Cox resigns from two

0:00:090:00:12

organisations set up

in her memory after allegations

0:00:120:00:14

of sexual harassment.

0:00:140:00:17

Brendan Cox admits he behaved

inappropriately while working

0:00:170:00:19

for Save the Children,

but denies assaulting a woman

0:00:190:00:21

at Harvard University in 2015.

0:00:210:00:29

Good morning, it's Sunday

the 18th of February.

0:00:310:00:33

Also this morning:

0:00:330:00:41

A major review of university funding

will be unveiled by ministers today

0:00:430:00:46

as MPs claim interest

rates on student loans

0:00:460:00:48

are "unjustifiable".

0:00:480:00:53

Thousands of people in Florida,

including survivors of Wednesday's

0:00:530:00:56

mass school shooting,

take to the street to demand

0:00:560:00:58

tighter gun controls.

0:00:580:01:05

If all the government and President

can do is send thoughts and prayers

0:01:050:01:09

than it is time the big is to be the

change that we need to see.

0:01:090:01:13

After a Super Saturday for Team GB

at the Winter Olympics,

0:01:130:01:16

we'll hear from all three medallists

live on today's Breakfast.

0:01:160:01:19

And Britain came very

close to another medal

0:01:190:01:21

at the Winter Olympics this morning.

0:01:210:01:22

James Woods has just missed out

on bronze in the slopestyle

0:01:220:01:25

skiing in Pyeongchang.

0:01:250:01:26

The Sheffield skier

finished in fourth place.

0:01:260:01:31

And Sarah has the weather.

0:01:310:01:37

That morning. A mild and mainly

cloudy day out there. The best of

0:01:370:01:41

the sunshine is towards the east.

Some rain in the west. I will bring

0:01:410:01:46

you your full forecast in around 15

minutes.

0:01:460:01:48

Good morning.

0:01:480:01:49

First, our main story.

0:01:490:01:50

The husband of murdered MP Jo Cox

has resigned from two charities

0:01:500:01:53

he set up in her memory

after allegations of sexual

0:01:530:01:56

harassment were published

in the Mail on Sunday.

0:01:560:01:58

Mr Cox denies assaulting a woman

at Harvard University in 2015,

0:01:580:02:01

but admits to "inappropriate"

behaviour while working

0:02:010:02:03

for Save the Children.

0:02:030:02:04

Our political correspondent

Susana Mendonca reports.

0:02:040:02:12

The murder of Jo Cox AN-26 been

shocked the nation. The Labor MP who

0:02:130:02:19

was also a mother of two small

children was murdered they are far

0:02:190:02:22

right extremist Taringa EU

referendum campaign. After her

0:02:220:02:26

death, her husband Brendan became a

prominent campaigner against

0:02:260:02:29

extremism and went on to help set up

to organisations, Aqua three and

0:02:290:02:34

More In Common. Now he has resigned

from both following allegations in

0:02:340:02:39

the Mail on Sunday that he sexually

harassed female colleagues while

0:02:390:02:42

working for the charity Save the

Children. In a statement, he said:

0:02:420:02:46

a source close to him said he had

ever sexually assaulted anyone and

0:02:580:03:05

that the allegations were

exaggerated. The Jo Cox foundation

0:03:050:03:09

said that Mr Cox was admired by

staff there to the integrity

0:03:090:03:13

commitment and dedication he had

shown to creating a positive legacy

0:03:130:03:17

for his wife.

0:03:170:03:19

Susana Mendonca, BBC News.

0:03:190:03:20

The new education secretary says

he wants to see more variety

0:03:200:03:23

in university tuition fees

in England, rather than what he says

0:03:230:03:26

is almost all institutions charging

"exactly the same price".

0:03:260:03:29

Interviewed in the Sunday Times,

Damian Hinds also suggests

0:03:290:03:31

the benefit of a university course

to the economy could help

0:03:310:03:34

decide future fees.

0:03:340:03:37

It comes as he and the Prime

Minister announce a review

0:03:370:03:40

into university funding today,

as Simon Clemison reports.

0:03:400:03:48

Many of the day's students were not

born when university tuition fees

0:03:490:03:54

were first introduced but 20 years

on, the link between getting a

0:03:540:03:57

degree and paying towards the cost

of it remains that has meant big

0:03:570:04:01

sacrifices for some.

But parents

sold their house all I could come to

0:04:010:04:05

uni, on the first one in my family.

Looking at it there were lots of

0:04:050:04:09

aspects about how much to pay back

in the long run and it is a really

0:04:090:04:14

scary prof act.

-- Prospect. The

government still backs the idea that

0:04:140:04:19

students should contribute towards

the cost of the higher education and

0:04:190:04:22

it is one area covered by its of

student finance, coming as it is one

0:04:220:04:26

area covered by its major review of

student finance, coming as the

0:04:260:04:29

committee says current interest

rates on loans of up to 6.1% are

0:04:290:04:33

questionable. With students in

England to Kimi letting more than

0:04:330:04:35

£5,000 in charges while they are

still studying. The average depth of

0:04:350:04:39

graduates totalling more than

£50,000.

They need to look at grants

0:04:390:04:42

available to help poorer students,

look at the level of interest that

0:04:420:04:46

is currently being applied to

student loans than they need to

0:04:460:04:49

rebuild public trust and confidence

in the fairness of the system by

0:04:490:04:52

ironing out some of these real

injustices in the way that the

0:04:520:04:55

system works.

Education Secretary

Damien Hinds says there are due to

0:04:550:05:01

review would consider extra

subsidies for expensive subjects

0:05:010:05:04

like science and engineering and

could make it easier to universities

0:05:040:05:07

to lower the cost of courses offered

by their departments. The threshold

0:05:070:05:11

for repayment would also be

considered, as will the length of

0:05:110:05:14

time before loans are written off.

But with the outstanding amount due

0:05:140:05:18

to hit £160 billion by 2021, Labor

argues the system is unsustainable.

0:05:180:05:23

Some of the survivors of Wednesday's

school shooting in Florida have

0:05:230:05:26

taken part in a rally to demand

tighter gun controls in the US.

0:05:260:05:30

Thousands of people gathered

outside the court building

0:05:300:05:32

in Fort Lauderdale, a short distance

from the school where a former

0:05:320:05:35

student killed 17 people.

0:05:350:05:37

Laura Westbrook reports.

0:05:370:05:42

CHANTING:

No more!

0:05:420:05:44

Outside the Federal Courthouse

in Fort Lauderdale,

0:05:440:05:47

this was the message to lawmakers.

0:05:470:05:52

Among the protesters

was Emma Gonzales,

0:05:520:05:53

who took cover on the floor

of her school's auditorium

0:05:530:05:57

as a gunman started shooting.

0:05:570:05:59

She had this to say to Donald Trump.

0:05:590:06:03

If the President wants to come up

to me and tell me to my face

0:06:030:06:07

that it was a terrible tragedy

and how it should never have

0:06:070:06:10

happened and maintain telling us how

nothing is going to be done

0:06:100:06:14

about it,

I will happily ask him how

0:06:140:06:16

much money he received

from the National Rifle Association.

0:06:160:06:21

What she's referring to

is the millions of dollars

0:06:210:06:23

the NRA has given towards

the Trump campaign.

0:06:230:06:26

On a visit to the hospital

where the victims of the attack

0:06:260:06:29

are being treated,

the President once again made

0:06:290:06:31

no mention of guns or gun control.

0:06:310:06:36

Instead, he says

the problem is mental illness.

0:06:360:06:44

When somebody infringes a rightful

presence in this company to keep and

0:06:450:06:48

Bear Arms than it is a violation of

our civil liberties and we have a

0:06:480:06:52

bigger problem.

We will be spending

our time at funeral.

After yet

0:06:520:06:57

another school shooting, anger among

the younger generation is rising. In

0:06:570:07:01

fact, students across the country

are planning a mass walkout of

0:07:010:07:05

schools in April. The anniversary of

the Columbine high school massacre

0:07:050:07:09

will stop they are demanding adults

listen to them and tighten the gun

0:07:090:07:14

control.

0:07:140:07:19

control. President Trump has

criticised the FBI is failing to

0:07:230:07:26

stop the shoot. In a tweet, he says:

0:07:260:07:28

Israel says it's carried out heavy

air strikes on Hamas targets

0:07:330:07:36

in the Gaza strip.

0:07:360:07:37

The military says it targeted 18

sites used by the Palestinian group,

0:07:370:07:41

including an arms factory.

0:07:410:07:47

They say it's in response to a bomb

attack near the border which injured

0:07:470:07:50

four Israeli soldiers.

0:07:500:07:51

Doctors in Gaza say two Palestinians

were injured and three are missing.

0:07:510:07:55

Nearly 200 British women

from the stage, film,

0:07:550:07:57

and TV have launched a fund ahead

of tonight's BAFTAs,

0:07:570:08:00

demanding the eradication

of sexual harassment.

0:08:000:08:05

Dame Kristin Scott Thomas,

Kate Winslet and Emma Thompson

0:08:050:08:07

are three of the women who signed

an open letter calling for the end

0:08:070:08:11

of harassment and abuse.

0:08:110:08:12

Emma Watson has donated one

million pounds to the fund,

0:08:120:08:15

and Keira Knightley

and Tom Hiddleston have each

0:08:150:08:17

given 10,000 pounds.

0:08:170:08:21

Church spires are going to be used

to help people in rural areas get

0:08:210:08:25

better access to mobile networks,

broadband and wifi services.

0:08:250:08:28

A deal between the government

and the Church of England aims

0:08:280:08:31

to make it easier to put

communication masts in spires

0:08:310:08:33

and towers, as James

Waterhouse explains.

0:08:330:08:41

the church spire can often be the

highest point of the village and

0:08:410:08:44

given that the Church of England has

more than 16,000 buildings of

0:08:440:08:48

different kinds, government

ministers are hoping this will give

0:08:480:08:51

the perfect infrastructure to help

more parts of the UK get better

0:08:510:08:54

signal. They say this deal will make

it better for Vickers to get this

0:08:540:09:00

technology installed and there is

cash to be made.

The rental is

0:09:000:09:04

typically between five and £10,000.

Which can be equivalent or more to a

0:09:040:09:10

normal income for a church for one

year.

Conservationists are not like

0:09:100:09:15

the idea of a mobile phone mast

being bolted onto their local church

0:09:150:09:19

however the government argues in

many cases the technology can be

0:09:190:09:22

hidden within the spire. They will

be rolled out over the next five

0:09:220:09:26

years and both parties will be

hoping this signals that of foreign

0:09:260:09:30

coverage and internet for more parts

of the UK. James Waterhouse, BBC

0:09:300:09:33

News. We will go to the Winter

Olympics in just one moment. Yes.

0:09:330:09:41

It was a Super Subzero Saturday

in Pyeongchang yesterday with three

0:09:410:09:44

women giving Team GB their most

successful day at a Winter Olympics.

0:09:440:09:48

Lizzy Yarnold retained her gold

medal from 2014 in the skeleton

0:09:480:09:51

and Laura Deas came third,

while Izzy Atkin claimed

0:09:510:09:55

Great Britain's first ever

medal in a skiing event

0:09:550:09:57

with a slopestyle bronze.

0:09:570:09:59

David Ornstein sent this report.

0:09:590:10:03

Guiding Great Britain

to unprecedented glory,

0:10:030:10:06

Lizzy Yarnold and Laura Deas

turning dreams into reality,

0:10:060:10:08

rewriting the record books.

0:10:080:10:14

COMMENTATOR:

Lizzy Yarnold next.

0:10:140:10:16

The Olympic champion.

0:10:160:10:16

Can she make history

and win it again?

0:10:160:10:20

Yarnold went into her

final slide in second place,

0:10:200:10:22

but conjured an imperious display,

0:10:220:10:24

and the fastest time any woman

has produced on this track

0:10:240:10:27

to enter sporting folklore.

0:10:270:10:30

COMMENTATOR:

That is a gold

medal-winning run, I am sure of it!

0:10:300:10:35

So it's gold for Lizzy Yarnold.

0:10:350:10:37

She's defended her title

0:10:370:10:38

and become the most decorated

British Winter Olympian in history.

0:10:380:10:42

She was joined on the podium

by team-mate Laura Deas.

0:10:420:10:48

the pair rounding off

the most successful day

0:10:480:10:50

their nation has ever

seen at a Winter Games.

0:10:500:10:52

As Yarnold jumped into the crowd

to join the celebrations,

0:10:520:10:55

how did she feel?

0:10:550:10:56

I feel exhausted!

0:10:560:10:58

Now a back-to-back champion,

0:10:580:11:00

the 29-year-old

couldn't hide her delight.

0:11:000:11:04

I'm just so relieved

that I've done the race,

0:11:040:11:06

I've been consistent, and Laura

and I are on the podium together.

0:11:060:11:09

For her parents, Judith and Clive,

another moment to savour.

0:11:090:11:14

From the mixed season that she's

had, to come and win a gold medal

0:11:140:11:18

here today - and we have a bronze

medal as well through Laura -

0:11:180:11:21

is just absolutely mind-boggling.

0:11:210:11:23

The success story was started

by the youngest member of Team GB,

0:11:230:11:27

19-year-old Izzy Atkin,

saving her best until last to take

0:11:270:11:31

bronze in the slopestyle

and become Britain's first official

0:11:310:11:34

Olympic skiing medallist.

0:11:340:11:41

Great Britain's Izzy

Atkin takes a bronze!

0:11:410:11:49

A

Super Saturday to live

long in the memory.

0:11:500:11:52

David Ornstein,

BBC News, in Pyeongchang.

0:11:520:11:54

And if you're wondering how our BBC

commentary team keep their composure

0:11:540:11:57

on days like yesterday,

the answer is...they don't.

0:11:570:12:03

She goes fourth! Lizzy Yarnold wins

gold again! Laura Deas have won

0:12:030:12:10

bronze as well!

The very essence of

cool, calm and collected. Also in

0:12:100:12:18

partiality! John Hunt was on the

microphone.

0:12:180:12:25

He was alongside John Jackson

0:12:250:12:26

and Amy Williams, struggling

to contain their excitement

0:12:260:12:28

as Austria's Janine Flock

slipped into fourth place,

0:12:280:12:30

sealing those medal places

for Lizzy Yarnold and Laura Deas.

0:12:300:12:33

There were pens flying around,

microphone cables flying around, all

0:12:330:12:37

over the place, and, Gett. They were

effectively celebrating someone

0:12:370:12:44

coming fourth in not being terribly

well which benefited the British

0:12:440:12:47

competitor but that is what they

were celebrating. It will speak to

0:12:470:12:51

all three medal winners

0:12:510:12:55

were celebrating. It will speak to

all three medal winners.

0:12:550:12:56

Kat Downes will be live

in Pyeongchang with Izzy Atkin just

0:12:560:12:59

after 7:30, and with Lizzy Yarnold

and Laura Deas at around 8:30.

0:12:590:13:07

It is 6:13pm so let's look at the

newspapers. -- AM. Let's go with the

0:13:070:13:13

sun on Sunday, the good old show

business front page, all about

0:13:130:13:17

Cheryl Cole, who splits torque

smoothly, they are ready to end it,

0:13:170:13:25

they are on the rocks, says the sun

on Sunday. The Mail on Sunday, lead

0:13:250:13:30

story for us as well, allegations of

sexual harassment against the

0:13:300:13:34

husband of the late MP Jo Cox. It

has been explaining his side of the

0:13:340:13:40

story in the Mail on Sunday. He

apologises to his previous

0:13:400:13:43

behaviour. And taking a look at the

Sunday Times which can be a big news

0:13:430:13:49

story, politically, as the day

develop stash might students to get

0:13:490:13:54

cheaper places at university

according to the Sunday Times, the

0:13:540:13:56

interview the new education

Secretary Damian Hines, he will be

0:13:560:14:01

on the Andrew Marsh show on BBC One

in a couple of hours. The big

0:14:010:14:06

question about what happens to

university tuition fees in England

0:14:060:14:09

with Labor promising to get rid of

them and the government saying it

0:14:090:14:13

will look at the whole way in which

they are charged and the interest

0:14:130:14:17

rates and the period over which

people are asked to pay them back.

0:14:170:14:21

Given that you normally hide out in

Westminster he would not all about

0:14:210:14:25

this, more on the claims of

connections between senior members

0:14:250:14:28

of the Labour Party and certain

secret agents back in the 1980s, and

0:14:280:14:34

the Sunday Telegraph said the

Livingston, John McDonnell and

0:14:340:14:38

Jeremy Corbyn were part of a group

of at least 15 senior Labor figures

0:14:380:14:41

who shared information with Eastern

bloc agents. It is claimed. Jeremy

0:14:410:14:48

Corbyn himself has denied having any

kind of formal relationship with

0:14:480:14:52

anyone who was known to be a spine.

I think there are a few more

0:14:520:14:57

front-page headline the long that

kind of things still to come.

0:14:570:15:00

Really? That would be my guess. It

is 6:15 AM let's check in with the

0:15:000:15:06

weather.

0:15:060:15:15

Snowdrops in the Yorkshire dales. Is

spring around the corner?

0:15:150:15:19

Snowdrops in the Yorkshire dales. Is

spring around the corner?

Things are

0:15:190:15:21

looking springlike this weekend.

Don't get used to it. It is mild,

0:15:210:15:27

but things will get more cold.

A

step back in the winter through the

0:15:270:15:33

week. A chilly start to the day.

Clear skies in the north and east

0:15:330:15:39

staff in northern Scotland last

night, a beautiful blooms of the

0:15:390:15:44

Northern Lights. This was taken by a

Weather Watcher in Shetland. We will

0:15:440:15:49

keep clear skies in the east.

Westley dry. Some rain. -- Mostly

0:15:490:15:58

dry. This is the satellite image

showing this area of cloud coming in

0:15:580:16:04

overnight associated with this warm

front in the Atlantic. Bringing mild

0:16:040:16:09

air through much of the country at

the moment. High pressure in the

0:16:090:16:14

near continent. Largely dry towards

the east. Decent spells of sunshine.

0:16:140:16:18

Further west, cloud is pushing in.

Getting the three-day. Mist and fog

0:16:180:16:26

lifting.

0:16:260:16:31

Rain in Northern Ireland into the

evening. Working through Scotland.

0:16:340:16:41

With all of the cloud and rain

tonight, not as cold as last night.

0:16:410:16:46

No frost tomorrow morning. Monday is

dominated by this front sitting

0:16:460:16:52

across the country which will fizzle

out when it bumps into the high

0:16:520:16:57

pressure coming out of Europe. Rain

in the front. You can make out the

0:16:570:17:02

yellow and green on Monday. Mild and

murky. Mist and fog. Outbreaks of

0:17:020:17:12

rain in the east of Scotland and

eastern England. Further west, a

0:17:120:17:16

better day. A little bit of

sunshine. Still pretty mild. 11-12.

0:17:160:17:22

More cold towards the east. Tuesday.

Rain is lingering in eastern

0:17:220:17:30

England. Dry for Scotland, Northern

Ireland, the west of England and

0:17:300:17:35

Wales. Temperatures are starting to

drop down. Through the course of

0:17:350:17:40

next week, the wind direction is

changing, coming in from the east.

0:17:400:17:45

Blue colours with a cold air mass on

the way. Mild and murky. Things will

0:17:450:17:53

turn more cold later on this week.

I

do not

0:17:530:18:05

do not know where crisp has been

living,

0:18:050:18:07

do not know where crisp has been

living, but we've had snowdrops for

0:18:070:18:08

weeks!

Yes. I guess it depends on

way you why living.

0:18:080:18:21

way you why living. -- where you are

living. Now it is time for the film

0:18:210:18:24

review.

0:18:240:18:29

Hello, and a warm welcome

to The Film Review on BBC News.

0:18:310:18:34

To take us through this week's

cinema releases is Jason Solomons.

0:18:340:18:37

Good to have you with us, Jason.

0:18:370:18:43

What have you been watching?

0:18:430:18:44

This week we go to Sacramento,

an ordinary town where Saoirse Ronan

0:18:440:18:47

stars as Lady Bird,

dreaming of romance and not

0:18:470:18:50

serving coffee anymore.

0:18:500:18:50

We go set sail on the oceans

with Colin Firth single-handedly

0:18:500:18:53

taking on the world in an around

the world yacht race,

0:18:530:18:56

starring as Donald

Crowhurst in The Mercy.

0:18:560:18:58

And there's more water,

as Sally Hawkins stars in Guillermo

0:18:580:19:01

del Toro's fishy fairy

tale The Shape of Water,

0:19:010:19:04

and an unlikely relationship

with an aquatic alien.

0:19:040:19:12

It is a very interesting week.

0:19:120:19:14

Oh, I loved Lady Bird, I loved it!

0:19:140:19:16

Well, I'm glad you did.

0:19:160:19:17

Of all the films that

are out this awards season,

0:19:170:19:20

Lady Bird has given me more pause

for thought than any

0:19:200:19:23

of the other ones.

0:19:230:19:24

I've seen it three times and it has

taken that long for the subtleties

0:19:240:19:28

and emotions to sweep over me.

0:19:280:19:29

I think it's because it's a film

told from Greta Gerwig's point

0:19:290:19:37

of view, the writer and director,

and it stars Saoirse Ronan.

0:19:420:19:45

Women crew the film.

0:19:450:19:46

I think it is a film told from

a very fresh feminine perspective.

0:19:460:19:49

It is a film we have seen

hundreds of times before,

0:19:490:19:52

a high school movie with cliques

and drama and mothers and best

0:19:520:19:55

friends and house

parties and prom night.

0:19:550:19:57

It is everything simple

on the outside but inside it is

0:19:570:20:05

sweet and beautiful.

0:20:050:20:05

Really, it is about a mother

and daughter relationship,

0:20:050:20:08

between Lady Bird -

that is her name, given

0:20:080:20:10

to her by herself -

her mum wants to call her Christine.

0:20:100:20:14

The mum is played by Laurie Metcalf,

who you remember from Roseanne

0:20:140:20:17

all those years ago.

0:20:170:20:18

She has not been on the big

screen ever, really.

0:20:180:20:22

She takes her opportunity

brilliantly.

0:20:220:20:24

Anyone who has been a daughter

and had a mother, I think this film

0:20:240:20:27

will resonate beautifully,

movingly and hysterically.

0:20:270:20:29

Here they are arguing,

as they do throughout the entire

0:20:290:20:32

film, about which college

Christine - Lady Bird -

0:20:320:20:34

should go to.

0:20:340:20:35

I want to go where culture

is, like New York.

0:20:350:20:38

How did I raise such a snob?

0:20:380:20:40

Or at least Connecticut

or New Hampshire.

0:20:400:20:42

You won't get into

those schools anyway.

0:20:420:20:44

Mom!

0:20:440:20:44

You can't even pass

your driver's test.

0:20:440:20:46

Because you wouldn't

let me practice enough!

0:20:460:20:48

The way that you work,

or the way that you don't work,

0:20:480:20:51

you're not even worse

state tuition, Christine.

0:20:510:20:53

My name is Lady Bird!

0:20:530:20:54

Well, actually, it's not

and it's ridiculous.

0:20:540:20:56

Call me Lady Bird,

like you said you would.

0:20:560:20:59

You should just go to City College,

with your work ethic,

0:20:590:21:02

go to City College, then to jail,

and then back to City College.

0:21:020:21:05

Then maybe you'll learn

to pull yourself up.

0:21:050:21:08

We both laughed at that

line, "then go to jail!"

0:21:080:21:10

It is for anyone.

0:21:100:21:11

I don't want to say it's a female

film in some stereotypical way.

0:21:110:21:15

I think lots of people will love it.

0:21:150:21:17

And there's an interesting twist

on the male characters,

0:21:170:21:19

which I won't give away.

0:21:190:21:21

It is so well observed, the writing.

0:21:210:21:29

That is the thing about this film.

0:21:320:21:34

Its charm accrues

through its details.

0:21:340:21:35

Its observations of small-town life,

though it's not that small town,

0:21:350:21:38

Sacramento is the capital

of California, actually,

0:21:380:21:40

but for Lady Bird it represents

a prison that she wants

0:21:400:21:43

to break out of.

0:21:430:21:44

Here she is with Timothee Chalamet,

who's Oscar nominated

0:21:440:21:47

for Call Me By Your Name,

and plays a pretentious pseudo-indie

0:21:470:21:50

band rocker in this,

who she falls for, of course.

0:21:500:21:52

It builds up all the stuff we have

seen before and gives it this very

0:21:520:21:57

fresh, gentle, subtle

and clever take.

0:21:570:21:58

It breaks your heart quite often.

0:21:580:22:00

It's about stuff that's not said.

0:22:000:22:01

It's a film of noncommunication.

0:22:010:22:03

All the frustration that

her and her mum have,

0:22:030:22:05

where her mother passively

aggressively nags her and says,

0:22:050:22:08

"Mmm, is that dress maybe too pink?"

0:22:080:22:10

It's all that stuff that is left

unsaid and never talked about.

0:22:100:22:13

People I know who have seen the film

have written to their mums and said,

0:22:130:22:17

mum, I actually really love you,

I'm sorry we don't say it enough.

0:22:170:22:20

There are many Hollywood films

about fathers and sons,

0:22:200:22:23

they always climax with the dad

saying "son, I love you."

0:22:230:22:26

Well, this is the opposite of that.

0:22:260:22:28

It starts with the mum and daughter

saying "I love you",

0:22:280:22:31

and then not doing it for the rest

of the film until it

0:22:310:22:34

breaks your heart at the end.

0:22:340:22:36

I think it's divine, this film,

absolutely gorgeous.

0:22:360:22:43

It is a delight and Greta Gerwig's

first, astonishing.

0:22:430:22:45

Her first on her own.

0:22:450:22:47

She is the fifth to be

nominated for the Oscar.

0:22:470:22:49

If you are a betting person,

which around the Oscars I am,

0:22:490:22:53

I would have a discreet flutter

on Lady Bird taking Best Picture.

0:22:530:22:56

It is small but perfectly formed.

0:22:560:22:57

I'm with you entirely on that.

0:22:570:22:59

What did you make of The Mercy?

0:22:590:23:01

The Mercy stars Colin Firth.

0:23:010:23:02

You remember all those years ago him

emerging from the lake wet

0:23:020:23:06

in Pride And Prejudice.

0:23:060:23:07

In this one he gets

a right old soaking.

0:23:070:23:09

He plays Donald Crowhurst,

an eccentric from Devon.

0:23:090:23:13

He invented his old boat

and is about to enter

0:23:130:23:16

a round the world yacht race.

0:23:160:23:20

He decides to do it on his own,

although he has a happy marriage

0:23:200:23:23

with Rachel Weisz and kids

and he decides to do this

0:23:230:23:26

in an Ealing-esque spirit

of the little man taking

0:23:260:23:29

on the world.

0:23:290:23:30

So he's inventing it and getting

sponsorship from a local car dealer

0:23:300:23:33

played by Ken Stott and getting

sponsorship from tinned soup firms

0:23:330:23:36

and rum firms, and then he sets sail

up off on his race and it becomes

0:23:360:23:40

a totally different movie.

0:23:400:23:41

It becomes profound and moving

and mystical and perplexing.

0:23:410:23:44

Why is this man taking

on this challenge?

0:23:440:23:46

And then, I mean, it's a true life

tale so I do not want to tell people

0:23:460:23:51

what happens, even though they can

look it up and find out,

0:23:510:23:54

but what happens

is extremely strange.

0:23:540:23:55

The film struggles

to take that on board.

0:23:550:23:58

Meanwhile, Colin Firth does some

of the best acting in years.

0:23:580:24:01

He's really challenged by this.

0:24:010:24:02

It might be something

to do with the water.

0:24:020:24:04

It brings the best out of Colin.

0:24:040:24:12

Fascinating!

0:24:180:24:19

I'm sensing it wasn't quite the film

you expected it to be?

0:24:190:24:22

It is a film of two halves.

0:24:220:24:24

David Thewlis is good.

0:24:240:24:25

Rachel Weisz does not have much

to do apart from answer the phone

0:24:250:24:29

and look worried a lot.

0:24:290:24:30

But Colin Firth is tremendous,

really, until he gets too wet

0:24:300:24:33

and then the film gets bogged down

in its own mysteries,

0:24:330:24:36

but they are true mysteries.

0:24:360:24:44

No one knows what

happened in this movie.

0:24:470:24:49

It drifts rather to a climax,

to use a nautical phrase.

0:24:490:24:57

We won't give anything away.

0:25:010:25:02

The Shape Of Water, now this

is a curious film and I mean this

0:25:020:25:06

in a good way.

0:25:060:25:07

I really enjoyed it,

but you do get to the end and think,

0:25:070:25:11

I'm not sure what it is about.

0:25:110:25:13

I'll try to tell

you what it's about.

0:25:130:25:15

It is about Sally Hawkins who plays

a mute cleaner called Elisa

0:25:150:25:18

and she has a job in an American

underground nuclear facility

0:25:180:25:21

which I think peppered

the US in the Cold War

0:25:210:25:24

in the '50s and '60s.

0:25:240:25:25

We're set just on the cusp of then.

0:25:250:25:27

Then this creature is brought in,

rather like the Roswell incident.

0:25:270:25:30

They bring it in in a tank

to do experiments.

0:25:300:25:38

They suspect it can help them defeat

the Russians somehow and win

0:25:390:25:42

the space race.

0:25:420:25:43

It's never clear.

0:25:430:25:43

We don't know what it is, really,

and they mistrust this creature

0:25:430:25:47

entirely, except for one mute

outside cleaner played

0:25:470:25:49

by Sally Hawkins, who strikes up

a strange relationship immediately

0:25:490:25:52

with this creature in the tank.

0:25:520:25:53

How was your trip?

0:25:530:25:54

Fine.

0:25:540:25:55

Just one moment, please.

0:25:550:25:56

Security, who's security?

0:25:560:25:57

I'm head of security.

0:25:570:26:05

MOANING NOISE

0:26:150:26:23

Get them out!

0:26:380:26:46

There is Michael Shannon's agent

Strickland glowering as only

0:26:480:26:51

Michael Shannon can do.

0:26:510:26:52

That clip gives the impression

it is all foreboding and dangerous

0:26:520:26:55

and scary, and actually

a lot of it is not.

0:26:550:26:58

It's an unbelievably beautiful film.

0:26:580:27:00

The production design

is extraordinary.

0:27:000:27:08

Which is why it's got so many

nominations at the Oscars

0:27:080:27:11

and the BAFTAs, 12 and 13.

0:27:110:27:12

Because it looks great -

the design is good.

0:27:120:27:15

The music is great

and the cinematography.

0:27:150:27:16

There is a lot of great stuff in it.

0:27:160:27:19

I mean, there's a lot.

0:27:190:27:20

I think there's too much in it.

0:27:200:27:25

It is a busy film.

0:27:250:27:26

It pastiches B-movies

which the director Guillermo del

0:27:260:27:28

Toro was watching as a kid

and he thought, wouldn't it be nice

0:27:280:27:32

if the girl and the creature get

together, like they do

0:27:320:27:35

in King Kong and Splash?

0:27:350:27:36

And yet it is entirely unique

of the director's vision.

0:27:360:27:44

Any hint of cynicism will ruin

the spell of the film.

0:27:510:27:54

You have to watch it

entirely spellbound,

0:27:540:27:56

like Sally Hawkins does.

0:27:560:27:57

And she's terrific in it.

0:27:570:27:58

But if you enter with an outside

thought you will say,

0:27:580:28:01

this is a bit silly,

I think someone is dancing

0:28:010:28:04

with a fish.

0:28:040:28:05

I know it will not

be for some people.

0:28:050:28:13

Very interesting.

0:28:190:28:19

I think it's worth

seeing in a curious way.

0:28:190:28:22

We have not managed to see

Black Panther yet, much to my other

0:28:220:28:25

half's disgust, but we are

trying to get there!

0:28:250:28:28

It is such an important movie.

0:28:280:28:29

I have to mention it

as the best film out there.

0:28:290:28:32

I think it'll be huge,

it is brilliant.

0:28:320:28:34

For a Marvel movie it packs

so much thought into it.

0:28:340:28:37

It is about Wakanda,

this African country whose borders

0:28:370:28:40

have to be protected

by the new king.

0:28:400:28:42

People have compared

it to the Lion King.

0:28:420:28:44

If that's cute, this

is the cool version.

0:28:440:28:46

Everyone in it is fantastic.

0:28:460:28:48

Culturally, it has

an all-black cast.

0:28:480:28:49

So that's an important thing.

0:28:490:28:51

It's a black blockbuster,

which there's never been before.

0:28:510:28:53

But watching it you forget

connotations of race.

0:28:530:28:55

You are just watching a movie

which transcends race which I think

0:28:550:28:59

is so important about it.

0:28:590:29:06

And everyone in it is amazingly hot

and sexy so Wakanda was the hottest

0:29:080:29:12

place in the Marvel universe.

0:29:120:29:13

Michael B Jordan takes his top off

and everyone was swooning.

0:29:130:29:16

Colin Firth has nothing on him!

0:29:160:29:18

That's saying something!

0:29:180:29:18

And a quick mention of a DVD?

0:29:180:29:20

A strange film that

went under the radar -

0:29:200:29:23

Most Beautiful Island.

0:29:230:29:25

It's a mystery set in New York

and is about immigrant cleaners

0:29:250:29:28

and au pairs who work

in New York, the black economy.

0:29:280:29:31

It's the nether world

they can get sucked into it,

0:29:310:29:39

the sex world.

0:29:390:29:40

It is made by Ana Asensio who stars

in it and directs it.

0:29:400:29:44

I thought it was fantastic.

0:29:440:29:45

The little details seeping in.

0:29:450:29:46

A fresh new indie film

that I can recommend,

0:29:460:29:49

because you have

never seen it before.

0:29:490:29:51

Jason, thank you very much indeed.

0:29:510:29:52

A really, really interesting week.

0:29:520:29:54

Thanks for being with us.

0:29:540:29:55

Enjoy your cinema going,

whichever of those interesting films

0:29:550:29:58

you decide to take on this weekend.

0:29:580:29:59

Thanks for being with us, bye-bye.

0:29:590:30:07

Hello, this is Breakfast

with Chris Mason and Rachel Burden.

0:30:160:30:19

Good morning.

0:30:190:30:20

Here's a summary of today's main

stories from BBC News.

0:30:200:30:23

The husband of murdered MP Jo Cox

has resigned from two charities

0:30:230:30:27

he set up in her memory

after allegations of sexual

0:30:270:30:29

harassment were made public.

0:30:290:30:32

Mr Cox denies assaulting a woman

at Harvard University in 2015,

0:30:320:30:35

but admits to "inappropriate"

behaviour while working

0:30:350:30:37

for Save the Children.

0:30:370:30:38

He has left posts at More in Common

and the Jo Cox Foundation

0:30:380:30:41

after the Mail on Sunday

published the claims.

0:30:410:30:48

The new education secretary,

Damian Hinds says he wants more

0:30:480:30:51

variety in university tuition fees

ahead of an England-wide review

0:30:510:30:53

into university funding.

0:30:530:30:56

In an interview with

the Sunday Times, he also said

0:30:560:30:59

the income threshold for repayment

would be considered,

0:30:590:31:01

as well as the length of time before

loans are written off.

0:31:010:31:05

It comes on the same day

the Treasury Committee called

0:31:050:31:07

the interest rates

on loans unjustifiable.

0:31:070:31:14

Some of the survivors of Wednesday's

school shooting in Florida have

0:31:140:31:17

taken part in a rally to demand

tighter gun controls in the US.

0:31:170:31:21

Thousands of people gathered

in Fort Lauderdale, near the school

0:31:210:31:23

where a former student

killed 17 people.

0:31:230:31:25

In a tweet, President Trump blamed

the FBI for failing to stop

0:31:250:31:29

the shooter because they were too

busy trying to prove collusion

0:31:290:31:32

between his electoral

campaign team and Russia.

0:31:320:31:40

One survivor of the shooting

criticised Mr Trump's links to

0:31:430:31:47

America's gun lobby.

If the

President wants to come up to me and

0:31:470:31:52

tell me to my face that it was a

terrible tragedy and how it should

0:31:520:31:56

never have happened and maintain

telling us how nothing is going to

0:31:560:32:00

be done about it, I'm going to

happily ask him how much money he

0:32:000:32:03

received from the National Rifle

Association.

(CHEERING AND

0:32:030:32:06

APPLAUSE).

0:32:060:32:07

Israel says it's carried out heavy

airstrikes on Hamas targets

0:32:070:32:09

in the Gaza strip.

0:32:090:32:10

The military says it targeted 18

sites used by the Palestinian group,

0:32:100:32:14

including an arms factory.

0:32:140:32:15

They say it's in response to a bomb

attack near the border which injured

0:32:150:32:19

four Israeli soldiers.

0:32:190:32:19

Doctors in Gaza say two Palestinians

were injured and three are missing.

0:32:190:32:25

Nearly 200 British women

from the stage, film,

0:32:250:32:27

and TV have launched a fund ahead

of tonight's BAFTAs,

0:32:270:32:30

demanding the eradication

of sexual harassment.

0:32:300:32:31

Dame Kristin Scott Thomas,

Kate Winslet and Emma Thompson

0:32:310:32:34

are three of the women who signed

an open letter calling for the end

0:32:340:32:37

of harassment and abuse.

0:32:370:32:39

Emma Watson has donated one

million pounds to the fund,

0:32:390:32:41

and Keira Knightley

and Tom Hiddleston have each

0:32:410:32:43

given 10,000 pounds.

0:32:430:32:51

Church spires and towers are to be

used to boost mobile phone and

0:32:540:32:59

broadband connectivity in rural

areas. The Church of England would

0:32:590:33:02

benefit by charging rent for the

space, the government says the

0:33:020:33:05

equipment would usually be installed

inside the spire so it wouldn't harm

0:33:050:33:09

the look of the building.

0:33:090:33:15

Now, time for a little sport and

this is a secret, in the studio we

0:33:150:33:19

have on one of our screens the

curling as part of the Winter

0:33:190:33:23

Olympics. So it is a very little

corner of my eye keeping an eye on

0:33:230:33:27

but constantly. Our women are

involved at the moment. They are, we

0:33:270:33:31

will go to that in a moment, they

are taking on Sweden, Britain's

0:33:310:33:37

curlers, that we have just missed

out on a medal, became really close.

0:33:370:33:42

The ski slopestyle, James Woods just

finished fourth, 1.4 points away

0:33:420:33:46

from the parity. We always knew the

competition was going to be tough.

0:33:460:33:51

It was. He was in the bronze in

opposition the sometime, just didn't

0:33:510:33:55

quite get it right on one of the key

sections, the rails section, but he

0:33:550:34:00

came very close.

0:34:000:34:01

So James Woods just missed out

on that bronze medal.

0:34:010:34:04

After yesterday's bronze

for Britain's Izzy Atkin

0:34:040:34:06

in the womens slopestyle,

hopes were high for another podium

0:34:060:34:08

finish in the men's event,

and we nearly had it.

0:34:080:34:11

This was how James just missed out.

0:34:110:34:13

The Sheffield skier

was in the bronze medal position

0:34:130:34:15

after two of the three runs

but he couldn't better that

0:34:150:34:21

in his final effort

and was eventually overtaken meaning

0:34:210:34:24

he finished in an

agonising fourth place.

0:34:240:34:29

Result wise, amazing. Performance

wise, you cannot engineer

0:34:300:34:33

perfection. I did the run three

times in a row and that is meagre,

0:34:330:34:40

seriously make up. If everyone had

been perfect it would have been last

0:34:400:34:44

place one or two people had slipped

up, we would have been on top. --

0:34:440:34:48

mega. That is the game of

perfection.

He did Linsley. -- he

0:34:480:34:55

did brilliantly.

0:34:550:34:56

It was a tough start for Team GB's

womens curlers but they have fought

0:34:560:35:00

back against Sweden.

0:35:000:35:01

It's the sixth match

of the round robin.

0:35:010:35:03

The Swedish are top

of the table and unbeaten.

0:35:030:35:05

GB are currently fourth.

0:35:050:35:07

As you can see, it is 3-3, is it?

Look up and I on that. --

0:35:070:35:12

We will keep an eye on that

through out the morning.

0:35:120:35:16

it is a game that Britain probably

need to win to give themselves the

0:35:160:35:20

best chance of making the

semifinals. You can still get

0:35:200:35:23

through but let's hope they can do

it in this match against Sweden. We

0:35:230:35:28

will keep you fully up-to-date with

that through the morning.

0:35:280:35:31

This time yesterday,

we were talking about Izzy Atkin

0:35:310:35:33

winning a bronze in ski slopestyle.

0:35:330:35:35

The day went on to become Team GB's

most successful ever at a Winter

0:35:350:35:39

Games.

0:35:390:35:39

Lizzy Yarnold became Britain's most

decorated Winter Olympian

0:35:390:35:41

after retaining her skeleton title.

0:35:410:35:43

She went into the fourth and final

run behind the leader but produced

0:35:430:35:46

a track record to

take the gold medal.

0:35:460:35:48

She's the first Briton to retain

a Winter Games title and her fellow

0:35:480:35:52

Brit Laura Deas took the bronze

to make it three medals in a day

0:35:520:35:56

for Great Britain.

0:35:560:36:02

I was absolutely terrified through

all four runs. I just wanted them

0:36:020:36:07

over. This is an awful thing to say?

I wanted her to get to the end and

0:36:070:36:12

be safe and be fast. Lizzie is

amazing under pressure. Look what

0:36:120:36:16

she have done. She said she would

come and do this for our country,

0:36:160:36:20

and she is.

0:36:200:36:21

There was a controversial VAR

decision in the FA Cup yesterday

0:36:210:36:24

but it didn't prevent

Manchester United booking

0:36:240:36:27

their place in the quarterfinals.

0:36:270:36:27

Southampton and Brighton are also

through, as Drew Savage reports.

0:36:270:36:35

So, if this off side or isn't it?

Have your sister at the rear was

0:36:350:36:40

supposed to bring clarity in such

situations but it hasn't provided

0:36:400:36:44

answers or more questions.

COMMENTATOR: Young. Matai. He is off

0:36:440:36:50

side and has made it 2-0.

Or had he,

the assistant referee flagged down

0:36:500:36:56

but did the video is this the river

rethink? For a lengthy wait Kevin

0:36:560:37:00

friend ruled that he had been off

side, his goal disallowed. Then the

0:37:000:37:04

debate over the television pictures

began. Was the yellow line straight

0:37:040:37:08

or even at right angles across the

pitch? Whatever your point of view

0:37:080:37:12

it didn't affect the outcome of the

match.

Sanchez, a fabulous all,

0:37:120:37:17

Lukaku right through here, can he

get the shot in, he can. Lukaku has

0:37:170:37:21

his.

Manchester United second. The

answer is most wanted to hear after

0:37:210:37:28

the final whistle were not about the

football.

This video assistant

0:37:280:37:31

referee from my point of view maybe

I am to traditional but it killed

0:37:310:37:36

the emotion of the game in these

situations and this is why I don't

0:37:360:37:39

like it.

What the VAR is bringing

good and bad, they have to kill the

0:37:390:37:45

bad. Make it, make it perfect.

Because everyone much loved the game

0:37:450:37:50

I think what's the truth.

Or the no

controversy after Brighton reach

0:37:500:37:56

their first final for 32 years after

a 3-1 win over Coventry, a goal from

0:37:560:38:03

their record signing, 35 years since

they took Manchester United to an FA

0:38:030:38:06

Cup final replay, this year they

will meet them in the last eight.

0:38:060:38:11

Speaking of replays, Sheffield

Wednesday will need a second go to

0:38:110:38:14

decide whether they all Premier

League Swansea will face the winner

0:38:140:38:17

of Rochdale versus Spurs, played

later today, and the controversial

0:38:170:38:19

wit of the peace West Brom finish

with 2-1 defeat. The Saints were two

0:38:190:38:28

up, then a wonder goal gave Albion

hope. They had a replay of their

0:38:280:38:32

own, Southampton will fly out on

Monday night, they trundled to

0:38:320:38:36

Manchester City or Wigan in the

quarter-finals.

0:38:360:38:39

George Groves successfully

defended his WBA Super middleweight

0:38:390:38:40

title with a win over

Chris Eubank Junior in Manchester.

0:38:400:38:43

The British world title

bout went all 12 rounds,

0:38:430:38:46

with Groves boxing clever

to withstand the challenge

0:38:460:38:48

from Eubank Junior.

0:38:480:38:49

The victory was unanimous

and also means Groves

0:38:490:38:51

is through to the World

Boxing Super Series final.

0:38:510:38:59

England's cricketers are in action

in New Zealand at the moment.

0:39:010:39:04

Despite losing all their matches,

a win here could mean they face

0:39:040:39:07

Australia in the final.

0:39:070:39:08

They're likely to need

to win by around 20 runs

0:39:080:39:11

to reach the final.

0:39:110:39:12

It's been mixed so far from England.

0:39:120:39:14

Jason Roy hit a rapid 21 before

gifting a simple catch

0:39:140:39:17

to the New Zealand

skipper Kane Williamson.

0:39:170:39:22

The latest from Hamilton -

0:39:220:39:24

England are 71/2 after 9 overs.

0:39:240:39:31

In the balance, that is, and they

probably haven't need to win by 20

0:39:310:39:37

runs, the average runs scored over

basically the over the tournament.

0:39:370:39:41

It is good having stuff happening

all over the world involving our

0:39:410:39:45

athletes, isn't it? Of one

description or another, we are just

0:39:450:39:48

sitting on the sofa. You will talk

to you later. This is another legend

0:39:480:39:54

of the Winter Olympics of the past.

0:39:540:39:57

One of the most hotly-tipped films

for tonight's BAFTA awards is I,

0:39:570:40:00

Tonya, based on events linked

to the Winter Olympics of 1994.

0:40:000:40:03

It's a biopic about

the American figure skater

0:40:030:40:05

Tonya Harding, who became notorious

for her link to an attack

0:40:050:40:08

on a fellow competitor.

0:40:080:40:09

Margot Robbie plays

the disgraced Tonya,

0:40:090:40:11

and Allison Janney her mother.

0:40:110:40:12

Our arts editor Will Gompertz

has been to meet them.

0:40:120:40:16

I was the best figure

skater in the world at one

0:40:160:40:19

point in time.

0:40:190:40:20

4.8.

0:40:200:40:20

How do I get a fair shot here?

0:40:200:40:22

It wasn't about telling

the Tonya Harding story.

0:40:220:40:24

The haters always say,

"Tonya, tell the truth."

0:40:240:40:28

REPORTER:

Tonya, how do you feel...?

0:40:280:40:30

TYRES SQUEAL.

0:40:300:40:33

Everyone has their own truth.

0:40:330:40:35

There's the whole, you know,

conversation around truth.

0:40:350:40:37

We have all these unreliable

narrators telling completely

0:40:370:40:40

contradictory versions

of the exact same event.

0:40:400:40:42

I mean, come on!

0:40:420:40:43

What kind of friggin' person bashes

in their friend's knee?

0:40:430:40:46

Who would do that?

0:40:460:40:49

The juxtaposition of everyone's

different point of view and story

0:40:490:40:54

is where the dark comedy comes in,

where you see my character throw

0:40:540:40:58

a knife at Tonya and then

you cut to me saying,

0:40:580:41:01

"You know, what family doesn't

have their ups and downs?"

0:41:010:41:04

I didn't stay home making

apple Brown Bettys.

0:41:040:41:07

No.

0:41:070:41:07

I made you a champion!

0:41:070:41:08

Knowing you'd hate me for it!

0:41:080:41:10

That's the sacrifice a mother makes!

0:41:100:41:12

I wish I had a mother

like me instead of nice!

0:41:120:41:15

You cursed me.

0:41:150:41:17

In the movie, you assault your

daughter on more than one occasion

0:41:170:41:20

and yet, her mother in real life

denies it happening.

0:41:200:41:25

I told her side of

the story very well.

0:41:250:41:27

I think I - I understood I had

to make her a three-dimensional

0:41:270:41:31

character.

0:41:310:41:31

She wasn't just a monster.

0:41:310:41:32

How old are you, honey?

0:41:320:41:34

She's a soft four.

0:41:340:41:39

Having been a figure skater myself,

I know how expensive it is to have

0:41:390:41:42

custom skates and have

the skating costumes.

0:41:420:41:45

I know what it took for my parents

to get up at 5:00 in the morning

0:41:450:41:50

and to take me to the rink before

school in the morning

0:41:500:41:53

and after school.

0:41:530:41:54

So I - I knew - I felt

like I could tell her side

0:41:540:41:58

of the story.

0:41:580:41:58

What can you tell us

about Tonya Harding?

0:41:580:42:01

Hmm, I don't know a Tony Harding.

0:42:010:42:03

Aren't you her bodyguard?

0:42:030:42:06

As a young producer and actor

in the business, do you think

0:42:060:42:10

the game is still

rigged against women?

0:42:100:42:16

There's far more female-driven

content, female-led films now

0:42:160:42:18

than even when I started -

and I haven't even been doing

0:42:180:42:21

it this long.

0:42:210:42:23

I think the next step is having

female storytellers tell those

0:42:230:42:26

stories and that's the change that

I can see happening right now.

0:42:260:42:30

Everyone is really making

a conscious effort and I think

0:42:300:42:32

we will see the, you know,

the result of that over the next

0:42:320:42:36

couple of years.

0:42:360:42:37

But still, is it enough?

0:42:370:42:38

No.

0:42:380:42:38

We still have - the statistics

are so imbalanced, I think it's

0:42:380:42:42

going to take a while.

0:42:420:42:43

But, yeah...

0:42:430:42:47

Such an extraordinary story.

0:42:470:42:48

That was our arts editor

Will Gompertz talking to actors

0:42:480:42:51

Margot Robbie and Allison Janney

about BAFTA nominated film,

0:42:510:42:54

I, Tonya.

0:42:540:42:54

They brought us Ikea

and Scandi-noir, and now

0:42:540:42:56

a new Swedish fitness craze has

reached British shores.

0:42:560:43:02

'Plogging' or picking litter

while jogging has gaining momentum

0:43:020:43:04

in the UK, as Greg Dawson reports.

0:43:040:43:12

In many ways, it looks like any

other week and fitness routine. You

0:43:150:43:19

will need a pair of these. A warmup

will help. It is February. But don't

0:43:190:43:26

forget to pick up one of these. And

maybe this will come in handy too. ,

0:43:260:43:34

all plucking and dropping first

gained popularity in Sweden but has

0:43:340:43:38

quickly caught on around the world

from the beaches of Australia to the

0:43:380:43:41

pavement of India and here in the

parts of south-east London.

I like

0:43:410:43:49

running, I like doing something in

the community, like finding places I

0:43:490:43:53

didn't know existed, like I didn't

know this park was here even though

0:43:530:43:57

I live in the area I have never been

here before the think it does two

0:43:570:44:01

things that helped me get fit a

company under more about where I

0:44:010:44:04

live in but I enjoy.

Ivor Gormley is

the founder of good gym which runs

0:44:040:44:09

plogging sessions and other

activities across the UK.

We have

0:44:090:44:12

been getting hundreds of new people

signing up every time you go for a

0:44:120:44:16

run you go for a run up unlikely to

pass by somewhere where there isn't

0:44:160:44:20

things going on, house of someone

who is isolated and lonely every

0:44:200:44:24

time you were running through your

community there are things that need

0:44:240:44:28

doing and actually you can combine

it with your exercise.

This is about

0:44:280:44:31

fun more than running though, as we

no a lot of our litter and up in the

0:44:310:44:36

waterways which means that the

ploggers end up in wages. It isn't

0:44:360:44:40

just about the climate of the public

purse, clearing the cost authorities

0:44:400:44:46

more than £700 million a year in

England alone. This local level

0:44:460:44:50

volunteering coincides with a

growing momentum nationally to cut

0:44:500:44:52

waste. Following the popularity of

the BBC 's blue planet series which

0:44:520:44:58

highlighted the damage plastic is

causing to our oceans, the Scottish

0:44:580:45:02

Parliament announced plans to ban

plastic straws. And the Royal family

0:45:020:45:06

has even backed efforts to reduce it

will use plastic on Britain 's Royal

0:45:060:45:09

Estates. Is it ever frustrate you

when you litter picking, you see the

0:45:090:45:15

state of some of the Parks and

waterways?

It is a bit frustrating

0:45:150:45:19

but especially because this is my

local park. I live around the

0:45:190:45:23

corner. But it is good that so many

people are willing to give up their

0:45:230:45:27

Saturday mornings to clean up parks

and rivers and... To get involved.

0:45:270:45:31

It involved in the community. With

that sense of making a small

0:45:310:45:35

difference to a bigger problem,

plogging offers much more than just

0:45:350:45:39

a strenuous workout. Greg Dawson,

BBC News, south-east London.

0:45:390:45:44

It would be quite good for your

biceps as well because by the Tony

0:45:440:45:51

get only have two big bin bags. You

would never Lukas Webb if your park

0:45:510:45:56

was full of litter.

0:45:560:46:00

I am not sure about the weather for

running.

0:46:050:46:10

I am not sure about the weather for

running.

It was glorious yesterday.

0:46:100:46:12

Sunshine. Sunshine towards the east.

Further west, cloud rolling in. The

0:46:120:46:20

north and east of the country, clear

skies overnight stop in northern

0:46:200:46:25

Scotland, seems like this. The

Northern Lights. This was taken from

0:46:250:46:30

the Shetland Isles. Today, clear

skies in the north and east for a

0:46:300:46:37

time. Largely dry. Later on, cloud

thickening and rain moving to the

0:46:370:46:42

west. Cloud moving in from the

Atlantic. Clear skies in the central

0:46:420:46:48

and eastern parts of the country.

Today, the weather front pushes in.

0:46:480:46:54

A warm front bringing mild

conditions. High pressure ahead of

0:46:540:46:58

that. Rain pushing into Northern

Ireland. Eventually into the west of

0:46:580:47:04

England and Wales and Scotland. Much

of the country, dry weather. The

0:47:040:47:09

best of the sunshine in eastern

Scotland to eastern England. The

0:47:090:47:14

mist and fog should lift. Staying

grey. Temperatures are still on the

0:47:140:47:21

mild side. The evening hours. The

rain initially in the west goes

0:47:210:47:26

east. England and Wales, cloud,

patchy and light outbreaks of rain.

0:47:260:47:34

Not as cold tomorrow. Monday, we

have the warm front with us sitting

0:47:340:47:41

in central and eastern parts of the

country. Bringing mild air. You can

0:47:410:47:44

see the yellows. Still a mild day on

Monday. Mild and murky. A cloudy

0:47:440:47:54

day. As the weather front stalls in

the east, a bit of rain for eastern

0:47:540:48:00

Scotland, eastern England, and

further west across the country, a

0:48:000:48:03

better day. Brightness breaking

through. Temperatures up to 12,

0:48:030:48:08

possibly 13 degrees. Tuesday's

weather. A weather front hanging on

0:48:080:48:15

in the east of England. Much of the

country, not a bad day. Sunshine

0:48:150:48:22

returning to Scotland and Northern

Ireland and Wales in the west of

0:48:220:48:25

England through Tuesday.

Temperatures starting to dip down,

0:48:250:48:28

especially towards the east. A sign

of things to come through the week.

0:48:280:48:34

Drawing in this easterly wind. Cold

air is on the way from Scandinavia

0:48:340:48:38

and Siberia. A change in the weather

through the week ahead. Quite a mild

0:48:380:48:46

and murky start to the week. Things

will get more cold. Do not get rid

0:48:460:48:50

of the winter layers just yet.

Mostly dry with sunshine. Back to

0:48:500:48:56

you.

Thank you

0:48:560:48:57

Mostly dry with sunshine. Back to

you.

Thank you so much.

I love a

0:48:570:49:02

little bit of sunshine. We will be

back with the headlines at seven.

0:49:020:49:06

Now it is time for The Travel Show.

0:49:060:49:11

This week on The Travel Show...

0:49:110:49:13

Seeing Africa by train.

0:49:130:49:16

We witnessed seven lions that

were chasing a zebra.

0:49:160:49:18

It was like a movie!

0:49:180:49:20

And this was real.

0:49:200:49:27

DISTORTED SINGING

0:49:400:49:40

And rocking the mike

underwater in Denmark.

0:49:400:49:42

Making music, whoo-hoo!

0:49:420:49:47

We're starting this week in Africa

on a train line that passes

0:49:470:49:50

through some of the continent's

wildest landscape.

0:49:500:49:52

The Freedom Railway cuts

through more than 18,000 kilometres

0:49:520:49:55

of dense jungle, mountains

and Savannah, as it winds its way

0:49:550:49:58

from Dar es Salaam in Tanzania

to Zambia's central province.

0:49:580:50:06

But more than 40 years after it

opened, it's now beginning

0:50:100:50:13

to show its age and is

overdue and major upgrade.

0:50:130:50:16

We bought a ticket and went

to find out what makes

0:50:160:50:19

the journey so unique.

0:50:190:50:27

And finally this week,

I travel to Aalborg in Denmark.

0:54:010:54:04

This is a country almost completely

surrounded by water,

0:54:040:54:12

no matter where you are you are

never more than 50 kilometres

0:54:140:54:17

from the coast.

0:54:170:54:22

So it should come as no surprise

that it was here that a local artist

0:54:220:54:27

was inspired to combine music

and water in a way that you have

0:54:270:54:30

never heard before.

0:54:300:54:31

This is the group Between Music,

their latest show is

0:54:310:54:34

the first in a four part

series called Aquasonic,

0:54:340:54:36

which explores who we

are as human beings

0:54:360:54:38

and it begins with our

time in the womb.

0:54:380:54:46

We are so often divided

between you and me, them

0:54:580:55:00

and us, different religions

and different cultures,

0:55:000:55:02

but this is something

we all know something about.

0:55:020:55:05

We have our first nine months

covered by this water

0:55:050:55:07

filter, so I think somehow

the audience, I think

0:55:070:55:10

they are on at least an unconscious

level will have a flashback

0:55:100:55:13

to hearing those sounds.

0:55:130:55:21

So as performers, how does it feel

when you are underwater performing

0:55:270:55:31

to an audience?

0:55:310:55:39

It gets really, somehow a sense

of loneliness to it.

0:55:520:55:55

There is not only a visual

loneliness to see these humans

0:55:550:55:58

in the tanks, but also the sound has

a kind of loneliness to it,

0:55:580:56:01

I think that is quite a nice idea.

0:56:010:56:04

So, here goes.

0:56:040:56:04

One deep breath and well,

actually this is quite nice.

0:56:040:56:07

You are doing good!

0:56:070:56:08

It is lovely and warm.

0:56:080:56:10

Yeah.

0:56:100:56:10

This is great.

0:56:100:56:11

So if you take this microphone

that is hanging and then

0:56:110:56:14

you hit this bell plate,

you see the one?

0:56:140:56:16

Yes, this one here?

0:56:160:56:17

Yes.

0:56:170:56:17

Then you take the microphone

and put it towards it.

0:56:170:56:20

Do you hear that effect?

0:56:200:56:22

Then you can sort of play with it.

0:56:220:56:24

Playing music in

water has two sides.

0:56:240:56:26

On one side it is

terrifying because also

0:56:260:56:28

when you are singing into the water

you have to have water

0:56:280:56:31

down your throat and if you open up

you get the water in your lungs.

0:56:310:56:35

So that's quite terrifying.

0:56:350:56:43

So how on earth do you get

musical insurance to play

0:56:570:57:00

underwater?

0:57:000:57:01

Well it took us 10-11 years to make

this and how come it took so long?

0:57:010:57:05

Because OK, it is something that

you need to really research

0:57:050:57:08

and when you see

what other people have

0:57:080:57:10

done and trying other instruments.

0:57:100:57:12

Most instruments didn't sound really

good, but we saw somehow a potential

0:57:120:57:15

in this.

0:57:150:57:15

But we also realised we had to build

instruments to work in the water,

0:57:150:57:19

so we found collaborators around

the world to help us build

0:57:190:57:22

instruments for this project.

0:57:220:57:30

Back in Denmark I am beginning

to think I am a bit of a natural.

0:57:300:57:34

Maybe you should just pull

the darbuka to the front window

0:57:340:57:37

and if you hit it with a hammer

you can close the sound

0:57:370:57:40

with your hand.

0:57:400:57:41

Another thing, if you take -

there is a small stick on the top

0:57:410:57:45

of the - yeah, exactly.

0:57:450:57:46

And you can use that

for the ring over there,

0:57:460:57:49

with the holes in it.

0:57:490:57:57

Oh OK.

0:58:070:58:08

That's so cool!

0:58:080:58:09

You're making music!

0:58:090:58:11

It is amazing, you have these

hammers - when you hit,

0:58:110:58:14

it resonates and you can

feel it in your body.

0:58:140:58:22

It is a totally different experience

than hanging a bell with a hammer.

0:58:310:58:34

And when you have

been out of order for

0:58:340:58:37

a couple of weeks or months

and when we go, we have to play

0:58:370:58:40

somewhere and get in the tank,

it feels like getting home again.

0:58:400:58:48

Try to go down and then

hit maybe number one

0:58:540:58:57

and number three together.

0:58:570:59:05

Underwater music, trickier than it

appears and definitely one not

0:59:190:59:21

to try at home.

0:59:210:59:22

Unfortunately that's all we've got

time for on this week's show.

0:59:220:59:25

Coming up next week:

0:59:250:59:26

With the Winter Olympics in full

swing in South Korea,

0:59:260:59:29

Carmen heads to Seoul for a taste

of its street food culture.

0:59:290:59:33

Let me tell you, it is pretty

cold out here right now,

0:59:330:59:36

it feels well below zero,

0:59:360:59:42

And we are off to one

of the toughest,

0:59:420:59:44

wildest environments

the UK has to offer.

0:59:440:59:46

Jo Walley joins a tour

which teaches you how to survive

0:59:460:59:49

a night outdoors in Scotland's

Cairngorm mountains.

0:59:490:59:51

So I have been digging for a couple

of hours now and the camera

0:59:510:59:55

is finally starting to completely

freeze over and I am also

0:59:550:59:58

freezing over.

0:59:580:59:59

Cheers everyone!

0:59:591:00:00

So do join us then, if you can.

1:00:001:00:02

In the meantime, don't forget

you can catch up with us

1:00:021:00:05

while we are out on the road

in real-time by signing up

1:00:051:00:08

to our social medai feeds.

1:00:081:00:10

Details are on the screen now.

1:00:101:00:11

From now, from me and the rest

of the Travel Show team in Denmark,

1:00:111:00:15

it is goodbye.

1:00:151:00:18

Hello this is Breakfast,

with Chris Mason, and Rachel Burden.

1:00:181:00:21

The husband of the murdered MP

Jo Cox resigns from two

1:00:211:00:24

organisations set up in her memory

after allegations of sexual

1:00:241:00:27

harassment.

1:00:271:00:27

Brendan Cox admits he

behaved "inappropriately"

1:00:271:00:28

while working for Save the Children,

but denies assaulting a woman

1:00:281:00:31

at Harvard University in 2015.

1:00:311:00:39

Good morning, it's Sunday

the 18th of February.

1:00:431:00:45

Also this morning:

1:00:451:00:53

A major review of university funding

will be unveiled by ministers today,

1:00:551:00:58

as MPs claim interest

rates on student loans

1:00:581:01:01

are "unjustifiable".

1:01:011:01:04

Thousands of people in Florida -

including survivors of Wednesday's

1:01:041:01:06

mass school shooting -

take to the street to demand tighter

1:01:061:01:09

tighter gun controls.

1:01:091:01:10

If all our government and President

can do is send thoughts and prayers,

1:01:101:01:16

then it is time for victims to be

the change that we need to see.

1:01:161:01:22

After a Super Saturday for Team GB

at the Winter Olympics,

1:01:221:01:25

we'll hear from all three

medallists live on Breakfast.

1:01:251:01:30

Yes, it is the morning after the

night if you are here in

1:01:301:01:34

Pyeongchang, red Britain have just

missed out on another medal, James

1:01:341:01:37

Woods being edged into force in the

ski slopestyle. More VU in 30

1:01:371:01:40

minutes.

1:01:401:01:43

-- More for you in 30 minutes.

1:01:431:01:45

And Sarah Keith-Lucas

has the weather.

1:01:451:01:48

A mild and mainly cloudy day, the

best of the sunshine towards the

1:01:481:01:51

east, the rain in the west. If all

forecast in around 15 minutes. Speak

1:01:511:01:56

to you in a bit!

1:01:561:01:58

Good morning.

1:01:581:01:58

First, our main story.

1:01:581:02:00

The husband of murdered MP Jo Cox

has resigned from two charities

1:02:001:02:03

he set up in her memory

after allegations of sexual

1:02:031:02:05

harassment were published

in the Mail on Sunday.

1:02:051:02:08

Mr Cox denies assaulting a woman

at Harvard University

1:02:081:02:10

in 2015 but admits to

"inappropriate" behaviour

1:02:101:02:12

while working for Save the Children.

1:02:121:02:14

Our political correspondent

Susana Mendonca reports.

1:02:141:02:18

The murder of Jo Cox

in 2016 shocked the nation.

1:02:181:02:20

The Labour MP, who was also a mother

of two small children,

1:02:201:02:24

was murdered by a far

right extremist during

1:02:241:02:26

the EU referendum campaign.

1:02:261:02:30

After her death, her husband Brendan

became a prominent campaigner

1:02:301:02:32

against extremism and went

on to help set up two organisations

1:02:321:02:35

- the Jo Cox Foundation

and More In Common.

1:02:351:02:38

Now he has resigned from both

following allegations in the Mail

1:02:381:02:41

on Sunday that he sexually harassed

female colleagues while working

1:02:411:02:44

for the charity Save the Children.

1:02:441:02:45

In a statement, he said: A source

close to Mr Cox told the BBC

1:02:451:02:49

that he had never sexually assaulted

anyone, and that the allegations

1:02:491:02:52

were exaggerated.

1:02:521:02:53

The Jo Cox Foundation said that

Mr Cox was admired by staff

1:02:531:02:56

there for the integrity,

commitment and dedication he had

1:02:561:02:58

shown to creating a positive

legacy for his Jo.

1:02:581:03:01

Susana Mendonca, BBC News.

1:03:011:03:09

The new education secretary says

he wants to see more variety

1:03:351:03:38

in university tuition fees

in England, rather than what he says

1:03:381:03:40

is almost all institutions charging

"exactly the same price".

1:03:401:03:43

Interviewed in the Sunday Times,

1:03:431:03:44

Damian Hinds also suggests

the benefit of a university course

1:03:441:03:47

to the economy could help

decide future fees.

1:03:471:03:49

It comes as he and the Prime

Minister announce a review

1:03:491:03:52

into university funding today,

as Simon Clemison reports.

1:03:521:03:54

Many of today's students were not

born when university tuition fees

1:03:541:03:57

were first introduced.

1:03:571:03:58

But 20 years on, the link

between getting a degree and paying

1:03:581:04:01

towards the cost of it remains,

and that has meant big

1:04:011:04:04

sacrifices for some.

1:04:041:04:05

And my parents sold their house

so I could come to uni -

1:04:051:04:09

I'm the first one in my family.

1:04:091:04:12

Looking into it, there were lots of,

like, different aspects of the debt

1:04:121:04:16

and how much you're paying back,

obviously, in the long run,

1:04:161:04:19

and it's just a really prospect.

1:04:191:04:20

The government still backs the idea

that students should contribute

1:04:201:04:23

towards the cost of their higher

education, and that's one

1:04:231:04:26

of the areas that will covered

by its major review

1:04:261:04:28

of student finance.

1:04:281:04:29

It comes as a committee of MPs

coming today says says current

1:04:291:04:33

interest rates on loans of up

to 6.1% are questionable.

1:04:331:04:40

With students in England

accumulating more than £5,000

1:04:401:04:43

in charges while they

are still studying.

1:04:431:04:44

The average debt for graduates

totalling more than £50,000.

1:04:441:04:47

They need to look at grants

available to help the poorer

1:04:471:04:50

students, they need to look

at the level of interest

1:04:501:04:53

that is currently being applied

to student loans, and they need

1:04:531:04:56

to rebuild some public trust

and confidence in the fairness

1:04:561:04:58

of the system by ironing out some

of these real injustices

1:04:581:05:01

at the heart of the way

that the system works.

1:05:011:05:04

Education Secretary Damian Hinds

suggests the review will consider

1:05:041:05:06

extra subsidies for expensive

subjects such as science

1:05:061:05:09

and engineering.

1:05:091:05:09

It could make it easier

for universities to lower the cost

1:05:091:05:12

of courses offered

by the departments.

1:05:121:05:14

The income threshold for repayment

would also be considered,

1:05:141:05:16

as will as the length of time before

the loans are written off.

1:05:161:05:20

But with the outstanding amount due

to hit £160 billion by 2021,

1:05:201:05:23

Labour argues the system

is unsustainable.

1:05:231:05:25

Simon Clemison, BBC News.

1:05:251:05:30

Some of the survivors of Wednesday's

school shooting in Florida have

1:05:301:05:33

taken part in a rally to demand

tighter gun controls in the US.

1:05:331:05:37

Thousands of people gathered

outside the court building

1:05:371:05:39

in Fort Lauderdale, a short distance

from the school where a former

1:05:391:05:42

student killed 17 people.

1:05:421:05:43

Laura Westbrook reports.

1:05:431:05:49

CHANTING:

No more!

1:05:491:05:52

Outside the Federal Courthouse

in Fort Lauderdale, this

1:05:521:05:53

was the message to lawmakers.

1:05:531:05:58

Among the protesters

was Emma Gonzales, who took cover

1:05:581:06:00

on the floor of her school's

auditorium as a gunman started

1:06:001:06:03

shooting.

1:06:031:06:06

She had this to say to Donald Trump.

1:06:061:06:09

If the President wants to come up

to me and tell me to my face

1:06:091:06:13

that it was a terrible tragedy

and how it should never have

1:06:131:06:17

happened, and maintain telling us

how nothing is going to be done

1:06:171:06:20

about it, I'm gonna happily ask him

how much money he received

1:06:201:06:23

from the National Rifle Association.

1:06:231:06:27

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE.

1:06:271:06:28

What she's referring

to is the millions of dollars

1:06:281:06:30

the NRA has given towards

the Trump campaign.

1:06:301:06:32

On a visit to the hospital

where the victims of the attack

1:06:321:06:35

are being treated, the President

once again made no mention of guns

1:06:351:06:39

or gun control.

1:06:391:06:40

Instead, he says the problem

is mental illness.

1:06:401:06:46

When somebody infringes a right

for persons in this country to keep

1:06:461:06:49

and bear arms, then it's

an infringement upon our rights

1:06:491:06:52

as a violation of our

civil liberties, now

1:06:521:06:54

we have a bigger problem.

1:06:541:06:55

We will be spending

our times at funerals!

1:06:551:06:58

But after yet another school

shooting, anger among the younger

1:06:581:07:01

generation is rising.

1:07:011:07:04

In fact, students across the country

are planning a mass walkout

1:07:041:07:07

of schools in April -

the anniversary of the Columbine

1:07:071:07:10

high school massacre.

1:07:101:07:11

They are demanding adults listen

to them and tighten gun control.

1:07:111:07:14

Laura Westbrook, BBC News.

1:07:141:07:22

President Trump has criticised

the FBI for failing

1:07:221:07:24

to stop the attack.

1:07:241:07:26

In a tweet, he said the bureau

was spending too much time trying

1:07:261:07:29

to prove collusion between his

electoral team and Russia,

1:07:291:07:32

and that investigators

should get back to basics.

1:07:321:07:39

Israel says it's carried out heavy

air strikes on Hamas targets

1:07:391:07:42

in the Gaza strip.

1:07:421:07:43

The military says it

targeted 18 sites used

1:07:431:07:45

by the Palestinian group,

including an arms factory.

1:07:451:07:47

They say it's in response to a bomb

attack near the border which injured

1:07:471:07:51

four Israeli soldiers.

1:07:511:07:52

Doctors in Gaza say two Palestinians

were injured and three are missing.

1:07:521:08:00

Nearly 200 British women

from the stage, film,

1:08:011:08:03

and TV have launched a fund ahead

of tonight's BAFTAs,

1:08:031:08:06

demanding the eradication

of sexual harassment.

1:08:061:08:07

Kate Winslet, Emma Thompson

and Dame Kristin Scott Thomas,

1:08:071:08:10

are three of the women who signed

an open letter calling for the end

1:08:101:08:14

of harassment and abuse.

1:08:141:08:15

Emma Watson has donated one

million pounds to the fund,

1:08:151:08:17

and Keira Knightley

and Tom Hiddleston have each

1:08:171:08:20

given 10,000 pounds.

1:08:201:08:24

Food could become more expensive

in British shops in the event

1:08:241:08:27

of a hard Brexit, according

to a committee of MPs.

1:08:271:08:31

MPs on the Environment,

Food and Rural Affairs committee

1:08:311:08:34

predict that would be

the result of trading under

1:08:341:08:36

World Trade Organization tariffs.

1:08:361:08:39

It also warned against accepting

lower food standards to secure

1:08:391:08:41

new free trade deals.

1:08:411:08:42

Our business correspondent

Joe Lynam reports.

1:08:421:08:50

The peace and bucolic splendour of

UK farmland could be dramatically

1:08:531:08:57

upset if Britain fails to get a

comprehensive free-trade deal

1:08:571:09:00

pressed bricks that. But for post

that. The key groups as consumers

1:09:001:09:06

may also end up paying more for food

if the UK reference to World Trade

1:09:061:09:11

Organization rules. The environment

food and rural affairs committee of

1:09:111:09:15

MPs says a so-called hybrid would

have a devastating effect on rural

1:09:151:09:19

communities. It is because 60% of UK

food exports go to the EU and they

1:09:191:09:25

could face much higher tariffs. The

committee also said that Britain

1:09:251:09:28

should not pollute its own high food

standard in order to find new global

1:09:281:09:33

trade deals such as one with the US.

We go into a sort of WTO situation

1:09:331:09:39

where there are tariffs on imported

food, it will drive food prices up

1:09:391:09:43

and to some commodities that will

actually suit farming but perhaps

1:09:431:09:46

not the consumer if they have to pay

more for their food.

But the

1:09:461:09:51

government has sought to soothe

those concerns. It said that leaving

1:09:511:09:54

the EU gave the UK a golden

opportunity to secure ambitious

1:09:541:09:57

free-trade deals while supporting

our farmers and producers. It said

1:09:571:10:02

he would not compromise on the UK's

high environment will all welfare

1:10:021:10:06

standards.

1:10:061:10:09

Joe Lynam, BBC News.

1:10:091:10:11

It was a Super SSaturday

in Pyeongchang yesterday,

1:10:111:10:13

with three women giving Team

GB their most successful day

1:10:131:10:16

at a Winter Olympics.

1:10:161:10:17

Lizzy Yarnold won gold

in the skeleton and Laura Deas

1:10:171:10:20

came third, while Izzy Atkin claimed

Great Britain's first ever

1:10:201:10:23

medal in a skiing event

with a slopestyle bronze.

1:10:231:10:28

And if you're wondering

how our BBC commentary team

1:10:281:10:31

keep their composure

on days like yesterday,

1:10:311:10:33

the answer is...they don't.

1:10:331:10:41

Flock goes fourth!

1:10:431:10:44

Yarnold wins gold again!

1:10:441:10:45

Laura Deas have won bronze as well!

1:10:451:10:53

Lizzy Yarnold, what a performance!

I

think that was a chair that went

1:10:541:10:59

flying.

1:10:591:11:00

That was John Hunt on the microphone

alongside John Jackson

1:11:001:11:02

and Amy Williams, struggling

to contain their excitement

1:11:021:11:04

as Austria's Janine Flock

slipped into fourth place,

1:11:041:11:07

sealing those medal places

for Lizzy Yarnold and Laura Deas.

1:11:071:11:15

As you are saying earlier, they were

effectively celebrating the demise

1:11:191:11:23

of a non- British competitor. That

is fine! John Hynes is one of our

1:11:231:11:28

best commentator and is probably

known to our horseracing commentator

1:11:281:11:31

and is brilliant and can put his

hand to anything. That was almost a

1:11:311:11:36

sport in itself, dancing around the

commentary box. That's terrific. I

1:11:361:11:40

cannot see that enough!

1:11:401:11:42

And coming up later, we'll be

speaking to all three medal winners.

1:11:421:11:45

Kat Downes will be live

in Pyeongchang with Izzy Atkin just

1:11:451:11:48

after half past seven,

and with Lizzy Yarnold

1:11:481:11:50

and Laura Deas at around

half past eight.

1:11:501:11:53

To stay with us for all of that, and

we are keeping an eye on the women's

1:11:531:11:57

curling. Will let you know what is

happening a bit later. It is 7:11

1:11:571:12:01

p.m.. Good morning. -- am.

1:12:011:12:03

Tuition fees and student loans

will be up for debate in a major

1:12:031:12:07

government review of

university funding that's

1:12:071:12:08

being announced today.

1:12:081:12:09

The cost of a course

and the likelihood of it producing

1:12:091:12:12

high-earning graduates is expected

to be considered too.

1:12:121:12:14

Nick Hillman, director of the Higher

Education Policy Institute,

1:12:141:12:17

joins us from our Oxford studio.

1:12:171:12:20

Good morning to you. Good morning.

What should the government be

1:12:201:12:27

considering here? It would appear

they are willing to take a look at

1:12:271:12:30

all sorts of aspects of the whole

business of funding higher education

1:12:301:12:34

in England. If you were still

working in government what would you

1:12:341:12:37

suggest they do at the end of the

process?

Will find out in 24 hours

1:12:371:12:41

who was doing the review and what

its terms of reference bar but in my

1:12:411:12:45

opinion, it should not spend too

much time looking at £9,000 fees for

1:12:451:12:50

full-time undergraduate school

leavers. Because that bit of the

1:12:501:12:54

system is actually working quite

well. We have a higher proportion of

1:12:541:12:57

18 your role is going to university

than ever before. I think it should

1:12:571:13:02

look at things like part-time

student funding, part-time student

1:13:021:13:05

numbers have more than halved in

recent years. It is also, we think,

1:13:051:13:10

going to be a church refunding

review which means that further

1:13:101:13:14

education colleges will be brought

in as well and that is what we are a

1:13:141:13:17

good idea. I perform treasury.

You

talk about how it brought in about

1:13:171:13:23

£9,000 may be working and I suspect

there may be some tunes walking at

1:13:231:13:26

that description in terms of the

size of the debt they are left with

1:13:261:13:32

so the challenge for the government

would be the Labor would get rid of

1:13:321:13:35

tuition fees entirely and anything

the government suggest, however Mel

1:13:351:13:38

leaning over four well meaning and

good for the Exchequer will by

1:13:381:13:42

tinkering in the margins.

That is

true, students don't like the fact

1:13:421:13:47

that the fees went up so much but we

need to remember all of the money is

1:13:471:13:52

being spent on their education. We

have some of the best universities

1:13:521:13:57

in the world and some of the best

facilities and lecturers in the

1:13:571:14:00

world. If we spend less on educating

people, and the quality of education

1:14:001:14:06

will be less good. If I was going to

do one thing the those sort of

1:14:061:14:10

archetypal young full-time

undergraduates, it would actually be

1:14:101:14:13

to look at their living costs

because what they tell us, they

1:14:131:14:18

worry about paying next week's rent

more than about paying back debt

1:14:181:14:24

when they are in the Labor market

and only once they are on good

1:14:241:14:27

earnings, a few years down the line.

You touched on this a few minutes

1:14:271:14:31

ago, but just to dive into the

detail, we saw in Labor MP talking

1:14:311:14:38

earlier about the idea of ironing

out injustices as part of this

1:14:381:14:41

shakeout. Where should the focus B?

Where would you hope to go to a bit

1:14:411:14:48

more detail if this all end up at

the end of the whole business of

1:14:481:14:52

this review?

There is lots of

places, one is part-time students,

1:14:521:14:55

another is the living costs of

students from poorer backgrounds,

1:14:551:14:59

and another thing that really

matters is how many places there are

1:14:591:15:04

in the system. Every time the cost

to what the taxpayers, of each

1:15:041:15:10

university place, the chances are

the government will come along and

1:15:101:15:14

say we are only going to let fewer

people go to university in the

1:15:141:15:18

future and that really matters to

macro, and then there is the whole

1:15:181:15:23

further education, further education

colleges have been hit hard in

1:15:231:15:27

recent years and they deliver lots

of higher education, they are not

1:15:271:15:32

patched with universities, but they

do deliver higher education and have

1:15:321:15:36

been hit hard those are three or

four areas I would start with.

1:15:361:15:41

What do you make of the idea of

cheaper courses for the university

1:15:451:15:49

costing less for students, like

humanities costing less than

1:15:491:15:56

engineering or science.

It is all

over the papers. I do not think it

1:15:561:16:01

stands up to scrutiny. For one

reason, all of the people calling

1:16:011:16:05

for different fees for different

courses, they nearly all mean

1:16:051:16:09

something different by it.

1:16:091:16:15

something different by it. Some want

cheaper fees for poorer students,

1:16:231:16:24

cheaper for humanities, cheaper for

medicine and physics, and some want

1:16:241:16:27

cheaper fees for how well graduates

to. We want everyone paying the

1:16:271:16:32

same, but the amount you pay back

after you graduated depends on how

1:16:321:16:39

well you do afterwards. The

government will still pay extra

1:16:391:16:43

money if you do medicine or teaching

to educate you. It will be an issue

1:16:431:16:50

for this review, but it is not an

easy question.

Thank you for talking

1:16:501:16:54

to us. We appreciate your insight.

Talking to us from Oxford. The

1:16:541:17:01

Education Secretary is live on the

Andrew Marr Show later on BBC.

1:17:011:17:10

How is the weather looking?

A little

bit mixed.

1:17:101:17:16

How is the weather looking?

A little

bit mixed.

Lots of glorious sunshine

1:17:161:17:18

yesterday. It felt lacks bring.

Sunshine in the east. -- like

1:17:181:17:25

spring. Last night with those clear

skies, northern Scotland, you could

1:17:251:17:30

have glimpsed the Northern Lights.

This was taken by one of our Weather

1:17:301:17:35

Watcher is. The Aurora Borealis.

Largely dry today. Misty and murky.

1:17:351:17:44

Rain arriving in the west later on.

Dry weather for most of the day.

1:17:441:17:49

Cloud rolling in from the Atlantic.

A frontal system going to the west.

1:17:491:17:54

A warm front. Importing mild air.

Temperatures are not bad. Chilly

1:17:541:18:01

towards the east. High pressure

sitting across Europe. Chilly in the

1:18:011:18:05

east and the clear skies. Eastern

Scotland, eastern England as

1:18:051:18:11

wellwest, west, England and Wales,

more cloud. Rain during the day,

1:18:111:18:16

initially in Northern Ireland and

then the west of England and

1:18:161:18:19

Scotland later on. Double figures in

the north and west. More cold in

1:18:191:18:25

north-east England and eastern

Scotland. This evening and

1:18:251:18:29

overnight, rain going across all of

the country. Rain and cloud, not as

1:18:291:18:34

cold as last night. Monday morning

will be frost-free. But misty and

1:18:341:18:40

murky. We still have a frontal

system on Monday. Eastern Scotland

1:18:401:18:45

and eastern counties of England the

rainfall. Look at the hot air mass.

1:18:451:18:51

Yellow indicating mild air. Cold

conditions on the way later in the

1:18:511:18:57

week. Monday is misty and murky and

great. Outbreaks of rain. Easing

1:18:571:19:03

towards the east. Further west,

things will brighten up through the

1:19:031:19:08

day. Some sunny spells breaking

through the cloud. Temperatures 13

1:19:081:19:15

degrees. Tuesday's weather. Rain in

East Anglia towards Kent and London

1:19:151:19:21

and Sussex. Elsewhere, not a bad

day. Sunny skies returned to

1:19:211:19:26

Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Temperatures are just starting to

1:19:261:19:31

dip down a notch. That is a sign of

things to come to look at the rest

1:19:311:19:37

of the week. The wind is coming from

a different direction, the east.

1:19:371:19:41

Cold conditions in northern Europe.

The wind is going to the UK. The

1:19:411:19:49

week ahead might be mild and misty

to start with. Do not get used to

1:19:491:19:54

the springlike conditions. A bit of

water later in the week.

We managed

1:19:541:20:00

to sit in the garden yesterday,

which felt odd. We will be back

1:20:001:20:08

inside by later on today.

Winter is

not done with us yet.

1:20:081:20:11

inside by later on today.

Winter is

not done with us yet.

1:20:111:20:14

They describe themselves

as "Britain's forgotten veterans."

1:20:141:20:16

60 years ago, thousands of UK

service personnel were sent

1:20:161:20:19

to the South Pacific

to test nuclear bombs.

1:20:191:20:21

Some claim the radiation caused

cancers and birth defects

1:20:211:20:23

which they passed onto their

children and grandchildren.

1:20:231:20:25

Now they hope a new study

of their DNA will prove it,

1:20:251:20:29

as Sarah Corker reports.

1:20:291:20:37

It was so bright you could see the

bones in your hand.

You just

1:20:401:20:55

bones in your hand.

You just saw,

like, another sun hanging in the

1:20:551:20:57

sky. That's what it was.

The South

Pacific at the height of the Cold

1:20:571:21:01

War. The British military testing

the nuclear bomb.

I am Bob Fleming,

1:21:011:21:04

I was a nuclear test veteran.

He was

24 and in the Forces when he watched

1:21:041:21:08

one of the world's most powerful

weapons detonate on Christmas

1:21:081:21:12

Island. One of 22,000 British men

involved in the testing programme.

1:21:121:21:17

We had no protection. Shorts,

flip-flops. Most of my children and

1:21:171:21:24

grandchildren have suffered with

some range of illnesses, some are

1:21:241:21:30

frightening.

Three generations of

the Fleming family believe they have

1:21:301:21:35

suffered because of his exposure to

radiation.

21 odd members in our

1:21:351:21:41

family, and 16 of us have health

problems. Muscular, legal, tumour

1:21:411:21:48

problems, kidney stone problems. --

skeletal.

They have spent decades

1:21:481:21:52

searching for answers. It was back

in 2012 Wendy test veterans took

1:21:521:21:59

their case to The Supreme Court and

lost. -- when the test. Now, here at

1:21:591:22:10

Brunel university in London, they

are carrying out scientific research

1:22:101:22:14

to see if there DNA has been

irreparably damaged. The chief

1:22:141:22:19

scientist told me blood cells will

be taken from 100 veterans and their

1:22:191:22:22

families.

We are assembling a group

of veterans that we know were

1:22:221:22:27

present at nuclear tests back in the

50s and 60s, and we are comparing

1:22:271:22:33

samples of their blood with a

control sample of veterans who we

1:22:331:22:38

know were not present at the nuclear

test sites.

And the scientists will

1:22:381:22:44

work closely with veteran charities.

They are the forgotten generation of

1:22:441:22:50

people who saw these very, very

powerful weapons exploded in their

1:22:501:22:57

faces, and it is almost like they

have been wiped from the history

1:22:571:23:01

books.

The Ministry of Defence says

it is grateful to the servicemen,

1:23:011:23:07

but says three previous studies of

the veterans found no valid evidence

1:23:071:23:11

to link the test to ill health. They

set up the aged veteran fund in 2015

1:23:111:23:17

to help find this new research. The

Flemings want to take part in this

1:23:171:23:26

study and are waiting to hear if

they have been selected.

We want

1:23:261:23:29

recognition. That is what we are

fighting for.

So, 60 years on,

1:23:291:23:36

nuclear families are still living in

the aftermath of these

1:23:361:23:46

the aftermath of these bomb tests.

Corker, BBC News.

1:23:521:23:56

You're watching

Breakfast from BBC News.

1:23:561:23:57

Time now for a look

at the newspapers.

1:23:571:24:00

Digital marketing and technology

expert, Dan Sodergren,

1:24:001:24:01

is here to tell us

what's caught his eye.

1:24:011:24:04

We'll speak to Dan in a minute.

1:24:041:24:06

There is a lot to get through this

morning. We will start with this

1:24:061:24:10

story about growing human organs, a

pancreas, within sheep.

The

1:24:101:24:16

technology now exists. The next 5-10

years we can grow organs in sheep.

1:24:161:24:23

It is exciting for people with

diabetes because it could be that

1:24:231:24:27

your pancreas could get swapped out

to one that is working. Obviously,

1:24:271:24:32

diabetes is a huge problem in this

country. It costs about £9 billion

1:24:321:24:37

to the NHS. 5 million of us could

have this. By the time my daughter

1:24:371:24:47

is 20, it will be 5 million of us

that we'll have this. It is a huge

1:24:471:24:53

problem to the UK. Obviously, there

are different ways of dealing with

1:24:531:25:00

diabetes.

I was going to say, is it,

to an extent, different types of

1:25:001:25:06

diabetes, different reasons they

contracted, but is it a lifestyle

1:25:061:25:09

disease? By growing these organs are

we treating the symptoms are not the

1:25:091:25:14

courts?

There are two different

types. I am not a doctor, but Type

1:25:141:25:21

one and Type two. The second one is

linked to lifestyle, but not always.

1:25:211:25:29

More important is the cost to the

NHS to be more than 20,000 per year

1:25:291:25:33

die from it. -- NHS. It is the

biggest cause of people losing limbs

1:25:331:25:40

and eyes.

We do not have enough

organs to donate.

Not at all. This

1:25:401:25:46

could be a great way of doing it.

But you are right to say there are

1:25:461:25:51

other ways we could do this. Myself,

I was diagnosed in November and I am

1:25:511:25:58

going through a change which is not

taking up my pancreas and replacing

1:25:581:26:01

it with a sheep one. But I have been

talking about that on my

1:26:011:26:11

talking about that on my website,

typetwodiabetes.com. This is the

1:26:111:26:14

next one. Donor Kebab. Taking a

serious story and making it Donor

1:26:141:26:22

Kebab instead. I love that.

Technology could save us. 5 million

1:26:221:26:27

people are potentially.

On the

technology theme again. We delve

1:26:271:26:35

into the inside pages. Page

1:26:351:26:45

into the inside pages. Page 53 of

the Mail on Sunday. GCHQ and smart

1:26:451:26:48

metres, the whole business of being

tapped into.

Technology is a

1:26:481:26:51

double-edged sword. This is a bit of

a dangerous story. People are using

1:26:511:26:56

smart metres in their homes, which

we have been told to do. But,

1:26:561:26:59

actually, they could be tapped into

and hacked by outside groups. They

1:26:591:27:06

have to look at the security of this

in a good detail. That is what the

1:27:061:27:10

government is doing. Positive in the

end.

I was

1:27:101:27:23

end.

I was wondering, as SurviveLive

will know when I got my new washing

1:27:271:27:30

machine, everything has WiFi, will

Russia be looking at my smalls? They

1:27:301:27:33

probably have other things they are

more interested in.

But they could

1:27:331:27:36

look at different things, but

perhaps not your smalls. Putin might

1:27:361:27:43

say I wouldn't mix those.

And family

have tried to go plastic free for a

1:27:431:27:47

week, but it does not come without

cost, does it?

When you look at the

1:27:471:27:51

cost. Look at the end there. They

went for a week without plastic.

1:27:511:27:58

They continued to do so, but because

they found it was healthier to it

1:27:581:28:02

food without it. Were putting this

into the oceans and it will be there

1:28:021:28:07

for 450 years. 8 million tons goes

inside the ocean. It is a huge cost.

1:28:071:28:17

£22 per week can be a significant...

They enjoyed the food more as well.

1:28:171:28:23

Depends what you prioritise.

We will

talk more later on. Plenty more to

1:28:231:28:30

talk about to be we will get into

some of the glossies as well. It is

1:28:301:28:34

not just the news. We will look at

that a little later here on

1:28:341:28:39

Breakfast.

1:28:391:28:40

The Andrew Marr Show follows

Breakfast on BBC One at 9am.

1:28:401:28:43

Let's see what's on the show.

1:28:431:28:45

Andrew?

1:28:451:28:48

Absolutely nothing glossy about us!

The big story this morning is about

1:28:481:28:52

tuition fees in schools in England.

I will speak to the new Education

1:28:521:28:59

Secretary

1:28:591:29:04

Secretary and his Labour opposite

who is at the summit in Leeds. I

1:29:041:29:07

have been talking to the Verhofstadt

negotiator. And I have been talking

1:29:071:29:17

to the real expert on the

connections of Donald Trump to the

1:29:171:29:21

Russians. A busy programme. All that

comes at nine a.m..

1:29:211:29:26

You're watching Breakfast. Still to

come this morning.

1:29:261:29:31

It's one of the most hotly

tipped films for tonight's Baftas.

1:29:311:29:34

We'll hear from actors Margot Robbie

and Allison Janney who star in "I,

1:29:341:29:37

Tonya."

1:29:371:29:37

Stay with us. Headlines are coming

up.

1:29:371:29:40

Hello, this is Breakfast

with Chris Mason and Rachel Burden.

1:30:091:30:12

Good morning.

1:30:121:30:12

Here's a summary of today's main

stories from BBC News.

1:30:121:30:17

The husband of murdered MP Jo Cox

has resigned from two charities

1:30:171:30:21

he set up in her memory

after allegations of sexual

1:30:211:30:23

harassment were made public.

1:30:231:30:25

Mr Cox denies assaulting a woman

at Harvard University in 2015,

1:30:251:30:28

but admits to "inappropriate"

behaviour while working

1:30:281:30:30

for Save the Children.

1:30:301:30:31

He has left posts at More in Common

and the Jo Cox Foundation

1:30:311:30:35

after the Mail on Sunday

published the claims.

1:30:351:30:43

The new education secretary

Damian Hinds says he wants more

1:30:431:30:45

variety in university tuition fees

ahead of an England-wide review

1:30:451:30:48

into university funding.

1:30:481:30:52

In an interview with

the Sunday Times, he also said

1:30:521:30:54

the income threshold

for repayment would be considered

1:30:541:30:57

as well as the length of time before

loans are written off.

1:30:571:31:00

It comes on the same day

the Treasury Committee called

1:31:001:31:03

the interest rates

on loans unjustifiable.

1:31:031:31:07

Speaking earlier on Breakfast,

Nick Hillman, director

1:31:071:31:09

of the Higher Education Policy

Institute, told us charging

1:31:091:31:11

different course fees

would be difficult.

1:31:111:31:19

There is a logic to the current

system which is everybody pays the

1:31:201:31:24

same. But the amount you pay back

after you have graduated depends on

1:31:241:31:29

how well you do in the Labor market.

If your course is really expensive

1:31:291:31:33

to teach, like engineering or

medicine, the government still pays

1:31:331:31:39

extra money to the university to

educate Hughes, so differential fees

1:31:391:31:42

will definitely be an issue for this

review, but it isn't an easy

1:31:421:31:46

question. But for the educate you.

1:31:461:31:47

Some of the survivors of Wednesday's

school shooting in Florida have

1:31:471:31:50

taken part in a rally to demand

tighter gun controls in the US.

1:31:501:31:54

Thousands of people gathered

in Fort Lauderdale, near the school

1:31:541:31:57

where a former student

killed 17 people.

1:31:571:31:59

In a tweet, President Trump blamed

the FBI for failing to stop

1:31:591:32:02

the attack because they were too

busy trying to prove collusion

1:32:021:32:05

between his electoral

campaign team and Russia.

1:32:051:32:11

But one survivor of the shooting

criticised Mr Trump's links

1:32:111:32:14

to America's gun lobby.

1:32:141:32:15

If the President wants to come up

to me and tell me to my face

1:32:151:32:19

that it was a terrible tragedy

and how it should never have

1:32:191:32:22

happened, and maintain telling us

how nothing is going to be done

1:32:221:32:26

about it, I'm going to happily

ask him how much money he received

1:32:261:32:29

from the National Rifle Association.

1:32:291:32:31

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE.

1:32:311:32:33

Israel says it's carried out heavy

air strikes on Hamas targets

1:32:331:32:36

in the Gaza strip.

1:32:361:32:37

The military says it targeted 18

sites used by the Palestinian group,

1:32:371:32:40

including an arms factory.

1:32:401:32:41

They say it's in response to a bomb

attack near the border which injured

1:32:411:32:45

four Israeli soldiers.

1:32:451:32:46

Doctors in Gaza say two Palestinians

were injured and three are missing.

1:32:461:32:54

Nearly 200 British women

from the stage, film,

1:32:581:32:59

and TV have launched a fund ahead

of tonight's BAFTAs,

1:32:591:33:02

demanding the eradication

of sexual harassment.

1:33:021:33:04

Kate Winslet, Emma Thompson

and Dame Kristin Scott Thomas,

1:33:041:33:06

are three of the women who signed

an open letter calling for the end

1:33:061:33:10

of harassment and abuse.

1:33:101:33:11

Emma Watson has donated one

million pounds to the fund,

1:33:111:33:14

and Keira Knightley

and Tom Hiddleston have each

1:33:141:33:16

given 10,000 pounds.

1:33:161:33:23

Church spires and towers are to be

used to boost mobile phone

1:33:231:33:27

and broadband connectivity

in rural areas.

1:33:271:33:28

The Church of England would benefit

by charging rent for the space.

1:33:281:33:31

The Government says the equipment

would usually be installed

1:33:311:33:34

inside the spire, so it wouldn't

harm the look of the building.

1:33:341:33:42

Two giant pandas on loan from China

have been unveiled at a zoo

1:33:421:33:46

in central Finland.

1:33:461:33:47

Lumi and Pyry gave visitors

at Ahtari Zoo quite a show

1:33:471:33:50

when their quarantine ended

and they were let out into the open

1:33:501:33:53

air for the first time.

1:33:531:33:54

China agreed to loan the pair for 15

years as a gift to Finland,

1:33:541:33:58

which celebrated 100

years of independence

1:33:581:34:00

from Russia last year.

1:34:001:34:08

That is an Olympics bought, Winter

Olympic sport I might be able to do,

1:34:111:34:15

the roly-poly down the hill.

Maybe

could do that for us in a little

1:34:151:34:22

while. How are you? There isn't much

call for winter Olympic roly-poly,

1:34:221:34:31

actually, it hasn't made it onto the

roster just yet but it is the

1:34:311:34:35

morning after the night before,

really in Pyeongchang after the best

1:34:351:34:38

day ever for a British team after a

winter games. What a day it was,

1:34:381:34:43

Lizzy Yarnold winning the back to

back Olympic titles and making

1:34:431:34:46

history and I think we should relive

that moment, shouldn't we? Second

1:34:461:34:51

place after the penultimate run,

blistering final run catapulted her

1:34:511:34:54

to the top of the standings, clean

through the corners, keeping her

1:34:541:34:58

speech to the flat sections and

producing her very best when it

1:34:581:35:02

mattered, the focus then for Lizzy

Yarnold and all that stood between

1:35:021:35:06

her and a second gold medal was

ginning flock of Austria with a

1:35:061:35:10

3-time World Cup race winner Janine

Flock. She lost time over her final

1:35:101:35:16

run which meant that the Lizzy

Yarnold is the first British woman

1:35:161:35:19

to successfully defend a Winter

Olympic title.

1:35:191:35:28

And it also meant that Laura Dees,

who was in fourth place

1:35:281:35:30

after her final run,

was bumped up to bronze.

1:35:301:35:33

Sheer delight from her, since,

just like Dom Parsons a few days

1:35:331:35:36

ago, she thought she hadn't done

enough and had just missed out.

1:35:361:35:39

So, for the first time ever,

Great Britain has two medal winners

1:35:391:35:43

on the same podium

at a Winter Games.

1:35:431:35:45

And one more record for you -

it was the first time Great Britain

1:35:451:35:49

won three medals in one day,

because earlier Izzy Atkin won

1:35:491:35:52

bronze in the skiing slopestyle.

1:35:521:35:56

I'm delighted to say she is standing

next to me with a very heavy metal

1:35:561:36:01

around her neck. Tell me quite a

heavy that is.

It is very heavy, if

1:36:011:36:07

I leave it too long around my neck

my neck will get sore.

It is 500 g

1:36:071:36:11

or something? It is bonkers. A

massive chunk of metal. Tell us, how

1:36:111:36:18

is the field to win an Olympic runs

metal, were you expecting it, what

1:36:181:36:22

were your expectations going in?

No,

I certainly wasn't going in

1:36:221:36:27

expecting a podium that I think this

really wanted to put down a run that

1:36:271:36:31

I was really proud of and ski the

best that I could. To come away with

1:36:311:36:36

this has just been amazing, it feels

like a dream.

Talk us through the

1:36:361:36:41

final run because the people at home

watching you ski, it was so clean,

1:36:411:36:45

so calm, when you needed it.

I was

nervous at the top because I had

1:36:451:36:51

just been bumped down to fourth

place by Maggie, one of the US

1:36:511:36:55

skiers, and I was extremely nervous

but I knew I could do it, I put down

1:36:551:37:01

the run in training so I decide to

put it down when it counted.

What

1:37:011:37:05

was the point when you knew you had

won the bronze?

It was after those

1:37:051:37:09

three girls went after me, which was

a stressful couple of minutes,

1:37:091:37:13

because any one of them could have

bummed me off the podium. Yeah, I

1:37:131:37:18

still don't think it has fully

settled in but it feels amazing.

I

1:37:181:37:22

can help but notice you have a

transatlantic accent. Tell us about

1:37:221:37:26

your connections to Great Britain

and where you train and where you

1:37:261:37:30

have been growing up.

So I trained

at the moment and practice in Utah

1:37:301:37:35

in the US and my father is from

England, he drop in Birmingham, and

1:37:351:37:40

I have loads of family there, they

came out to watch me yesterday. My

1:37:401:37:44

aunt and uncle actually surprised

me, they flew all the way from

1:37:441:37:49

Surrey to come here and surprise me

which has been amazing to got to see

1:37:491:37:53

them for bit last night and, yeah I

feel so honoured to be a part of

1:37:531:37:57

Team GB.

What was the reaction when

you walked back into Team GB house?

1:37:571:38:03

Loads of congratulations. I didn't

spend a lot of time in the village

1:38:031:38:07

yesterday with the medal ceremony

and all the media stuff and it has

1:38:071:38:10

been a surreal couple of hours, 24

hours, I suppose.

Your first

1:38:101:38:15

Olympics and you come away with a

bronze medal.

Where do you go from

1:38:151:38:19

here? I will just keep skiing and

having fun, the season isn't open

1:38:191:38:24

yet, we still have a couple of

competitions, I will keep it a bit

1:38:241:38:28

chill, rest up because my body is

definitely a bit sore after

1:38:281:38:33

yesterday, it was a lot of skiing,

and I will keep having fun.

You said

1:38:331:38:38

you were going to celebrate with a

trip to a karaoke bar and sing some

1:38:381:38:42

Katy Perry.

Have you done that yet?

Not yet but probably tonight after

1:38:421:38:47

all of the guys are done, hopefully

tonight.

Congratulations, Izzy. You

1:38:471:38:54

mentioned James Woods because there

was disappointment for him, he was

1:38:541:38:58

trying to emulate Izzy in the skiing

slopestyle and just missed out on a

1:38:581:39:03

bronze medal. The tiniest fraction,

agonisingly close.

1:39:031:39:09

He had been in the bronze medal

position for much of the competition

1:39:091:39:13

but was just edged

out on the final run.

1:39:131:39:15

Just 1.4 points in it.

1:39:151:39:17

Before I go, just time to update you

on the curling because Britain's

1:39:171:39:22

women are in action. They are

against Sweden in the latest

1:39:221:39:26

round-robin. It is 6-4 after eight

or nine ends. They have won three,

1:39:261:39:34

lost through with three more

round-robin matches left to go, they

1:39:341:39:37

are in fourth position, only the top

four go through, so it is tense

1:39:371:39:42

stuff for great Britain's curlers on

the ice at the moment. Thank you,

1:39:421:39:48

Kat! We are keeping a close eye on

all of that. The final end, you

1:39:481:39:57

could see Eve Muirhead has played a

great shot. They are not by any

1:39:571:40:01

means out if they lose, are they?

No, they will still be in but it

1:40:011:40:06

will be difficult if they do end up

losing this. They are trailing by

1:40:061:40:10

two points in this crucial length.

You can see the 10th written on

1:40:101:40:18

their facial expressions. --

attention. I can't see how many

1:40:181:40:24

stones are left but... We are in the

10th end. So, yeah, will keep an eye

1:40:241:40:32

on that. Let's talk FA Cup. It isn't

all slipping and sliding in sport.

1:40:321:40:36

There is plenty of that in the

football! Who will talk about the FA

1:40:361:40:42

Cup, Manchester United beating

Huddersfield by two goals to nil,

1:40:421:40:45

but it was a controversy, wasn't it?

This is of a yellow lines on whether

1:40:451:40:50

they ask Wiggly or not. Have I got

my head around specifics of this.

1:40:501:40:59

The video assistant referee system,

Manchester 12- zero but it was a

1:40:591:41:03

gold ruled out for offside but are

talking about with a system that is

1:41:031:41:08

used. So it goes to the video

assistant referee. But the lookup

1:41:081:41:11

the key talking point, this was a

goal from Juan Mata, tight offside

1:41:111:41:16

decision, the referee Kevin friend

was in touch with the video

1:41:161:41:19

assistant referee who ruled it out,

offside, and ultimately, the

1:41:191:41:25

squiggly line was there as you can

see, this is Romelu Lukaku making it

1:41:251:41:29

safe his second goal of the and that

is now 21 goals of the season, we

1:41:291:41:38

didn't actually see the squiggly

line. When we say the squiggly line,

1:41:381:41:44

it is the line that was observed by

the assistant referee looking at the

1:41:441:41:49

TV screen? There is some debate as

to whether it was an accurate line

1:41:491:41:55

or not? Exactly. It is supposed to

be straight but it looked a little

1:41:551:42:00

bit like when you got the primary

school and you get given a ruler for

1:42:001:42:04

the first time? We're not sure if

that is what the video assistant

1:42:041:42:09

referee was looking out but either

way, there was confusion about

1:42:091:42:12

whether it should have been ruled

out. It is a mess, isn't it? It is

1:42:121:42:17

messy and that splits opinion, Joe Z

Mourinho said the system is good but

1:42:171:42:20

as long as we get it right it is

fine. David Wagner, the Huddersfield

1:42:201:42:25

town manager and I must say, I am

with him, he said it takes the

1:42:251:42:30

emotion out of the game because Juan

Mata scores and celebrates but then

1:42:301:42:34

it isn't a goal and the supporters

are well up for as well not sure and

1:42:341:42:38

I must admit, it is difficult as it

is to believe in my youthful looks,

1:42:381:42:43

I am old school on it as well. Let's

say would be on that. The boxing

1:42:431:42:49

now.

1:42:491:42:50

George Groves successfully

defended his WBA Super middleweight

1:42:501:42:52

title with a win over

Chris Eubank Junior in Manchester

1:42:521:42:55

The British world title

bout went all 12 rounds,

1:42:551:42:57

with Groves boxing clever

to withstand the challenge

1:42:571:42:59

from Eubank Junior.

1:42:591:43:01

The victory was unanimous

and also means Groves

1:43:011:43:03

is through to the World

Boxing Super Series final.

1:43:031:43:07

England's cricketers are in action

in New Zealand at the moment.

1:43:071:43:10

Despite losing all their matches

a win here could mean they face

1:43:101:43:13

Australia in the final.

1:43:131:43:15

They're likely to need

to win by around 20 runs

1:43:151:43:17

to reach the final.

1:43:171:43:23

It's been mixed so far from England,

1:43:231:43:29

David Malan hit half century as

England made 194- seven on their 20

1:43:291:43:34

overs. Will it be enough with New

Zealand chasing 100 and 74? As I

1:43:341:43:43

mentioned England's need to win by

more than 20 runs to stand a

1:43:431:43:47

realistic chance of getting through

to the final. You have mastered the

1:43:471:43:51

rules of various winter Olympics

sport and now have to do arithmetic

1:43:511:43:54

around the cricket. Watch me bumble

through! We will speak to you later.

1:43:541:44:08

They brought us Ikea

and Scandi-noir, and now

1:44:121:44:15

a new Swedish fitness craze has

reached British shores.

1:44:151:44:17

'Plogging' or picking litter

while jogging has gaining momentum

1:44:171:44:19

in the UK, as Greg Dawson reports.

1:44:191:44:21

In many ways, it looks like any

other weekend fitness routine.

1:44:211:44:24

You'll need a pair of these.

1:44:241:44:26

A warm-up will help -

it is February.

1:44:261:44:28

But don't forget to

pick up one of these.

1:44:281:44:31

And maybe this will

come in handy too.

1:44:311:44:33

Plogging, or plucking and jogging,

first gained popularity in Sweden

1:44:331:44:36

but it's quickly caught

on around the world,

1:44:361:44:38

from the beaches of Australia

to the pavements of India,

1:44:381:44:40

and here in the parks

of south-east London.

1:44:401:44:45

I like running.

1:44:451:44:46

I like doing stuff in the community.

1:44:461:44:48

I like finding places that

I didn't know existed -

1:44:481:44:50

like, I didn't know this park

was here, even though I live

1:44:501:44:54

in the area, I've never

been here before -

1:44:541:44:56

so I think it does two things.

1:44:561:44:58

It helps me to get fit and helps me

to find out more about where I live

1:44:581:45:03

and that, I enjoy.

1:45:031:45:04

Ivo Gormley is the founder

of Good Gym which runs plogging

1:45:041:45:07

sessions and other community

activities across the UK.

1:45:071:45:09

We have been getting hundreds

of new people signing up.

1:45:091:45:12

Every time you go for a run,

you're likely to pass by somewhere

1:45:121:45:15

where there isn't fly

tipping going on.

1:45:151:45:17

You're not likely to pass

by the house of someone

1:45:171:45:20

who is isolated and lonely.

1:45:201:45:21

Every time you are running

through your community,

1:45:211:45:23

there are things that

need doing and actually,

1:45:231:45:26

you can combine that

with your exercise.

1:45:261:45:27

This is about far more

than just running, though.

1:45:271:45:30

As we know, a lot of our litter ends

up in the waterways which means

1:45:301:45:34

that the ploggers end up in waders.

1:45:341:45:36

And it's not just helping

the environment but also potentially

1:45:361:45:39

the public purse.

1:45:391:45:39

Clearing litter costs local

authorities more than £700 million

1:45:391:45:42

a year in England alone.

1:45:421:45:43

This local-level volunteering

coincides with a growing momentum

1:45:431:45:45

nationally to cut waste.

1:45:451:45:47

Following the popularity

of the BBC's Blue Planet series,

1:45:471:45:49

which highlighted the damage plastic

is causing to our oceans,

1:45:491:45:52

the Scottish Parliament announced

plans to ban plastic straws.

1:45:521:45:59

And the Royal Family has even backed

efforts to reduce single-use plastic

1:45:591:46:02

on Britain's Royal Estates.

1:46:021:46:03

Does it ever frustrate

you when you're litter picking,

1:46:031:46:05

you see the state of some

of the parks and some

1:46:051:46:08

of the waterways?

1:46:081:46:12

I suppose it is a bit frustrating

but especially because this

1:46:121:46:16

is my local park -

I live just around the corner -

1:46:161:46:19

but it is good that so many

people are willing to give

1:46:191:46:22

up their Saturday mornings to clean

up parks and rivers and...

1:46:221:46:25

To get involved.

1:46:251:46:26

Get involved in the community.

1:46:261:46:27

With that sense of making a small

difference to a bigger problem,

1:46:271:46:30

plogging offers much more than just

a strenuous workout.

1:46:301:46:33

Greg Dawson, BBC News,

south-east London.

1:46:331:46:41

It makes you wonder when you see the

enthusiasm, like in the curling. It

1:46:481:46:57

could be exciting to go and pick up

litter. We have a nationwide

1:46:571:47:04

enthusiasm for the brushing...

Does

it make it go faster or slower?

I

1:47:041:47:09

just need to master the rules by the

end of the Games.

It is tied at the

1:47:091:47:16

moment. We are keeping an eye on it.

There it is. It is very tight

1:47:161:47:24

between Great Britain and Sweden at

the moment.

And it is faster. If you

1:47:241:47:31

live in the countryside you can

understand how bad it is trying to

1:47:311:47:36

get good Wi-Fi.

1:47:361:47:43

But now, the Church of England

has signed an agreement

1:47:431:47:46

with the government making it easier

to use church steeples to host

1:47:461:47:49

mobile phone masts.

1:47:491:47:50

Becky Clark, who's from the Church

of England, joins us

1:47:501:47:53

from our London newsroom.

1:47:531:47:54

Good morning.

Good morning.

Watch

deal have you done with mobile phone

1:47:541:47:59

companies?

It is not a deal with

them. It is an agreement with the

1:47:591:48:04

government to work together to

improve mobile and broadband

1:48:041:48:09

infrastructure.

It is needed for

small businesses and people in more

1:48:091:48:13

isolated communities to make sure

they have connectivity with the rest

1:48:131:48:16

of the world.

Those of us who live

in cities and small townships take

1:48:161:48:25

it for granted. We have to make sure

that, as a body with representatives

1:48:251:48:32

in every community, we wanted

extended to everyone in country.

1:48:321:48:36

There must have been some anxiety

before you came to this agreement.

1:48:361:48:40

There will be a deal with the phone

companies to be done at some stage

1:48:401:48:44

in this process and you will

effectively charged them rent for

1:48:441:48:47

using your buildings. Given they are

Christian places of worship, are you

1:48:471:48:55

OK using it for commercial ends?

120

churches are already taking part in

1:48:551:49:01

this kind of partnership. More

importantly, we are trying to

1:49:011:49:05

provide productivity in areas of the

country companies have not been able

1:49:051:49:09

to reach. We are not talking about

mobile, this is about providing

1:49:091:49:14

mobile and broadband to areas in the

country without it. It will be

1:49:141:49:20

smaller providers and local

companies. Any money and by the

1:49:201:49:25

local church rather than the central

Church of England can be invested

1:49:251:49:28

back into the local communities.

How

disruptive role there? What will

1:49:281:49:32

these mobile phone masts look like?

People might imagine enormous and

1:49:321:49:39

tall radio transmitters but we are

talking about very small antenna you

1:49:391:49:49

cannot see from the ground, and they

sit inside the tower along with the

1:49:491:49:55

cables, discreetly inside the

building. The amount of damage...

1:49:551:49:58

There will be no damage. The impact

on the buildings themselves will be

1:49:581:50:03

minimal. All the technology we are

installing will be resourceful.

1:50:031:50:07

Thank you so much.

1:50:071:50:13

Thank you so much.

We will hear much

more from you with more

1:50:131:50:18

Thank you so much.

We will hear much

more from you with more Wi-Fi.

And

1:50:181:50:19

now for the weather. It is a

beautiful scene with the sun rising

1:50:191:50:26

in Norfolk. This was taken by a

Weather Watcher. Through the rest of

1:50:261:50:31

the day, largely dry. A lot of

cloud. It will bring some bricks of

1:50:311:50:37

rain to the western parts of the

country. -- bits of. You can see the

1:50:371:50:43

clouds moving towards the west.

Clear skies in central and eastern

1:50:431:50:47

parts. Chilly by frost in the east.

High pressure holding on. A warm

1:50:471:50:56

front is bringing milder air. Also

some cloud. Outbreaks of rain

1:50:561:51:01

pushing into Northern Ireland

through the middle part of the day.

1:51:011:51:05

The rest of the country, dry

weather. The best of the sunshine in

1:51:051:51:09

northern and eastern Scotland.

Temperatures ranging between 8-9 in

1:51:091:51:15

the north, 10- 11 in the south. The

evening, rain heading to Dumfries &

1:51:151:51:20

Galloway. Cornwall as well. Then it

goes for England, Scotland, and

1:51:201:51:26

Wales. Things should dry up in

Northern Ireland overnight. Cloud,

1:51:261:51:31

mild, frost-free. Different from

this morning. We still have a front

1:51:311:51:36

with us during the day on Monday.

Fizzling out as advancing to high

1:51:361:51:40

pressure. Still producing some

outbreaks of rain with milder air.

1:51:401:51:44

The yellow indicates mild air with

us on Monday. Do not get used to it.

1:51:441:51:48

Not sticking around long. Cloudy and

grey. Through the day, skies should

1:51:481:51:54

clear. Sunshine breaking through for

Northern Ireland and western

1:51:541:51:58

Scotland, the west of England and

Wales. Further east, cloud with a

1:51:581:52:02

few outbreaks of rain on that

weakening front. Temperatures are

1:52:021:52:06

still in double figures for many of

us. Call under the rain. Tuesday,

1:52:061:52:12

still have remnants of that front

producing rain the East Anglia and

1:52:121:52:16

Sussex.

1:52:161:52:18

Temperatures will be in double

figures in Northern Ireland. Then

1:52:231:52:26

things will change as we bring in

the cold easterly wind. It will

1:52:261:52:30

bring with it chilly conditions for

a midweek onwards. A different feel

1:52:301:52:36

to the weather. It will feel colder,

but dry and bright. The week ahead.

1:52:361:52:42

Mild and cloudy. Rain over the next

few days. But things turned more

1:52:421:52:48

cold but also sunny late in the

week. -- turn.

1:52:481:52:56

And later on we will hear from the

skeleton medallists from the

1:52:561:52:59

Olympics.
