In the midst of all those whose
showers and the totals will be

the number of isobars. We could be
feeling more like -15 or so and a
real dose of winter. That prospect
goes on through Wednesday and on
into Thursday. Next week, disrupted
snow, bitter winds, some frost in
the mix, particularly in the west
where you will get to see some sunny
spells. That is not the whole story
because later on we think there
could be disrupted snow moving up
from the south-west, an area of
south wind bringing heavy snowfall

microbes to, and Dartriver. Finding
Your Feet is aimed at the same
audience that made Marigold Hotel.
It begins with Lady Sandra Abbott on
the eve of her retirement. She read
the very posh life and suddenly
discovers her husband has been
having an affair.
What the hills going on?
what it looks like, Sandra. Sandra?
Sandra! Sandra, wait.
How long has
it been going on? That's nearly five
years! I've had enough of all this

I have spent my
entire married life putting you and
your career first and what got me
through was knowing that when you
retired we would share our golden
years together, but instead you have
treated me in for a newer model.
She's had more than one previous
owner, and her body work is mainly
You laughed at least twice.
I laughed several times. She walks
out with her sister, they are like
chalk and cheese, and her sister
tells her, you have been using an
artificial life, you need to enjoy
yourself along. She also takes her
to dance lessons, where she meets a
character cold Charlie, hence
Finding Your Feet. You know from the
outside what will happen is that she
will soften and discover there is
more to life than this ridiculous
dream of her husband's retirement.
When she first meets Charlie, you
know she will warm to him. You also
know that amongst the comedy there
will be tragedy. The question is,
how well does this all play out? I
have to say, rather better than I
expected. I thought it was charming
and funny, not least because it is a
great cast and they are having a
good time, it as well directed. Yes,
no cliche goes unturned. It borrows
a certain structural debt to
Nativity, and it would have made
more sense to release this new
Christmas because there is a
Christmas theme to it. But overall,
I thought it was funny and charming,
I liked the performances. My heart
went with it enough that when they
had kept going, hang on, my heart
went, just let it be, and I enjoyed
I, Tonya. It is a good watch.
Tonya Harding's crew imploded after
another attack on a fellow skater.
It tells contradictory stories, it
says at the beginning based on the
toes of the true and utterly
contradictory testimonies of its
central characters. They are to the
top to the audience to fake
interviews or by breaking the fourth
Wallenstein, this didn't happen. But
it is essentially a story of someone
who has come to an abusive
background, she is beaten by her
husband and also attacked by her
mother. So it's, for heaven's say,
show me a family who doesn't have
their ups and downs. In my opinion,
it manages to balance the serious
object matter of domestic abuse but
also plays with modern conventions
anyway that characters will
literally turn up and say, this
didn't happen. So it's a film being
told from lots of different
I find it hugely
watchable and the story is
fascinating. It was that thing off
turning to Camara and being very
jokey about something precisely at
the moment when they are talking
about domestic abuse and she has
just punched her. She marries the
first man who has along and he
abuses her for years.
One thing that
comes up is, you deserve to be
beaten. She's the mother says, I've
never with a man who beats me up.
There is a moment where the
character turns up with a shotgun
and says, this never happened. It
gales with serious issues while
being funny. Think everyone watching
at all, it will come out with the
same opinion that she is a survivor.
Absolutely. And she just eats that
role for breakfast.
role for breakfast.
Again, another film dealing with
abuse in a very different way. Ruth
Wilson plays a character who returns
to the farm on which she grew up,
she's been away for 15 years. Her
abusive father has died and she
comes back to the form which she
feels she has a right now to take on
the tenancy. But her brother is

huge fan, this takes inspiration
from rules Tribune and has a
similarity to The Levelling. It is
about the way trauma affects
people's memories and perceptions,
people living with the ghost of an
abusive past. It is very powerful
not least because the performances
are very good. But also because it
is located very much in the
landscape and has the idea of buried
family secrets coming up from the
ground. It is very atmospheric.
Although the subject matter is very
dark, the tone is completely on
exploitative. It feels like a firm

today's mean stories from News. The
Olympic Committee has decided to not
left Russia's suspension for doping.
It means the Russian athletes who
were allowed to compete as Mitchell
Santner not be allowed to march
under their own flag. Russia had
asked for the restoration of its
Olympic status but two athlete had
failed drugs test.
It is hoped an end to fighting would
allow humanitarian aid to be brought
in and injured civilians rescued.
The Syrian government has criticised
the vote. More than 80 senior Labour
figures have issued a statement in
the Observer warning Jeremy Corbyn
that he will be unable to fund his
promised investment in schools,
hospitals and social care unless the
UK stays in the EU single market. In
a keynote Brexit speech tomorrow, he
is expected to commit Labour to
membership of some kind of customs
union, but not remaining in the
single market. Children were able to
buy corrosive substances in an area
of London suffering a record number
of acid attacks. An investigation
found some shopkeepers were still
selling items despite there being a
voluntary code of conduct in play.
New figures have shown the number of
attacks involving corrosive
substances in England and Wales has
more than trebled in five years. A
new fund to fight child sexual
exploitation and so-called drugs
crime is being launched by the Home
Office. Ministers want social
workers, police and nurses to form
close protective relationships with
children and young people at risk

The International Olympic Committee

suspension for doping in time

they have had after the mass doping

There's growing concern over
so-called "county lines" crime,
where gangs in cities send young
runners to sell drugs
in small towns.
The government is investing
£13 million to try
to tackle the problem.
Ministers want social workers,
police, nurses and other
professionals to build relationships
with young people at risk from sex
gangs and drug dealers.
Joining us now from our London
newsroom is ex-offender turned youth
gang worker, Junior Smart.
Thank you very much for talking to
us. County lines, a phrase some
people might be familiar with, a
growing problem with police and
other authorities around the
That is right. Seriously,
we are talking about thousands of
young people being criminally
exploited, a very serious issue, it
is hidden, and it is more national
than people care to realise. If you
just look at the UK, we have got
around 450 county lines operations,
each involving children around the
age of about 11 plus, a very serious
issue. It requires organisations to
be working together in partnership,
but more importantly, it is about
engaging with young people and the
work we have been doing is using
credible people with first-hand
trained experienced and it involves
prevention as well, going into
schools and colleges and pupil
referral units and helping the young
people demystify the reality of what
they might be getting involved in

number of different ways. The work

way we forge really good working
partnerships, we work alongside

to do is provide them with tools and
this is what comes back to things
like prevention, going into schools,
we impart real tools to the young
people so they can use them

with the services. If the services
are not communicating with each
other, in many ways, they are more
territorial than the gangs, they are
not sharing information, the systems
do not communicate. One of the key
things is, even if a young person is
out of your area, it is about

are tapping in increasingly to some
cold air that has been there for
awhile over Scandinavia, across the
north-western quarter of Russia. It
has widely spread across the
continent and it is coming our way.
You will feel it cold to start the
day. There's plenty of sunshine to
come around. Plenty of sunshine
across Scotland and the north-east
of England. The temperature is not
as high as yesterday. Some people

see the first signs of a bit of a
change. Something of a granular look
of this cloud coming in here and we
see snow showers coming into a cold
atmosphere, temperatures widely
across the British Isles below
freezing. Once you start putting
moisture from the North Sea into
that, that is when we start to see
the first signs of a significant
change in the British weather
pattern. It will feel much colder
tomorrow in today and some wintry
showers, light for the most part I
would have thought, and largely
confined to the eastern side of the
British Isles on what will be a much
colder feeling day. One, two, three
degrees or so, if you get above
freezing. Notice the area of snow we
are talking about there, that I
think will drift across the
north-east of England overnight and
could be an issue for Wales and
North England as we come through
Tuesday. The showers keep coming and
some areas from Tuesday through
Wednesday, all of us feeling colder
but this no maps will lie because it
is so cold that they will begin to
build up, several centimetres, maybe
ten centimetres for these eastern
areas fully exposed to this great
raft of showers. They keep coming

into Thursday. My concern about this

the wind is picking up. And we have
this low pressure in the south. So
what? Firstly, we begin to see of
significant prolonged snow coming up
into all of that cold air. But is
quite a shopping list of weather.
For today and much of tomorrow, no
great problems. Then, disruptive
snow, feeling much colder, we could
be down at -15 wind chill Wednesday
and Thursday because of that
strengthening wind. There will be
some sunshine, especially across

easterly wind, and additional ice a

If you've ever tried
to lose a pound or two,
spare a thought for jockeys
who are constantly having
to drop their weight ahead of races.
Now Britain's most successful
jockey, Tony McCoy, is working
with researchers to advise riders
how to lose weight without damaging
their long term health.
Judy Hobson reports.
Horse racing is part of our national
culture, but what is life like for
those at the very centre of the
sport? For the jockeys, it can be
dangerous, but most say the toughest
part of the job is the relentless
struggle to keep the weight off.
Keeping their weight low is an
integral part of a jockey's job,
because if they can't make the
weight, while they wait to get the
rights. If they don't get the
rights, their careers could be over.
Southwell races and the jockeys are
weighing in before the first race.

Wilson is a former jockey and heads
up the world's leading research on
how jockeys can make weight safely.
George is measuring how much body
fat Paul is covering -- carrying.
You only have 11% in total. We have
to tell jockeys they must be
realistic about what they are trying
to achieve. We offer up individually
devised diet and nutrition
programmes and exercise programmes
based upon the research, as opposed
to the jockeys adopting these
culturally driven methods which
obviously would not be the best for
Extreme dieting can
cause serious long-term physical and
even mental health problems in the
industry says it wants these
practices to become a thing of the
past. So this programme aims to
educate riders in having a healthy
diet combined with fat burning
exercises. A P McCoy says he regrets
not having access to this research
earlier in his career.
Maybe I could
have been so much better if I'd had
the access to something like this in
the early part of my career. It
could have made me better, could
have made me last longer. It could
have made me a much better jockey.
Dieticians are now routinely at
racetracks and advice on healthy
weight making -- healthy weight
making is made at racing schools.

things that is really interesting in
some of the films is how controlled
the press was during the Second

have that control in America and
that was the fear, that the American
