Hello, this is Breakfast,

with Tina Daheley and Charlie Stayt.

0:00:060:00:08

Snow, ice and strong winds continue

to cause major travel disruption.

0:00:080:00:11

In south-east London,

police were called after people

0:00:110:00:13

stuck on trains, started

jumping on to the tracks.

0:00:130:00:16

Overnight volunteers in Devon helped

transport staff and patients

0:00:160:00:18

to hospital through the snow.

0:00:180:00:20

And after the big freeze, flooding

hits parts of the south-west.

0:00:200:00:28

Good morning, it's Saturday 3 March.

0:00:480:00:49

Also this morning:

0:00:490:00:50

Facing up to "some hard facts "-

the Prime Minister says neither side

0:00:500:00:54

will get everything they want

from Brexit but argues the UK and EU

0:00:540:00:57

are close to a deal on transition.

0:00:570:01:00

How a new kind of camera could help

early diagnosis of one of the most

0:01:000:01:05

deadly forms of cancer.

0:01:050:01:06

In sport, Britain have their first

gold, of the World Indoor

0:01:060:01:09

Championships in Birmingham.

0:01:090:01:09

And Katarina Johnson-Thompson

has her first world title -

0:01:090:01:12

victory in the pentathlon,

and sealed in style.

0:01:120:01:19

Didn't even see it!

0:01:190:01:21

It might have started

in the playground, but wallball

0:01:210:01:24

is all grown up.

0:01:240:01:25

I tried my hand at the sport,

ahead of the UK championships.

0:01:250:01:28

And Chris has the weather.

0:01:280:01:31

And Chris has the weather.

0:01:310:01:32

We are looking at a cold and frosty

start, a big risk of ice around this

0:01:320:01:38

morning so

0:01:380:01:39

start, a big risk of ice around this

morning so take it easy on the

0:01:390:01:39

roads. There will be more snow to

come today across northern areas but

0:01:390:01:43

it will not be as heavy as recent

days and it will start to be less

0:01:430:01:47

cold from the south-west through the

weekend. More details later.

0:01:470:01:54

Good morning.

0:01:540:01:55

First, our main story.

0:01:550:01:56

Freezing weather conditions

are continuing to cause major travel

0:01:560:01:58

disruption across the UK.

0:01:580:01:59

Weather warnings of snow and ice

remain in place in large parts

0:01:590:02:03

of the country, although conditions

are expected to ease throughout

0:02:030:02:05

the day.

0:02:050:02:06

The Environment Agency has issued 15

flood warnings for England,

0:02:060:02:10

mainly in the south-west

and north-east coast areas,

0:02:100:02:12

due to the arrival of Storm Emma.

0:02:120:02:14

Last night, police were called

to Lewisham in south-east London

0:02:140:02:17

as passengers, who'd

been stuck on a train,

0:02:170:02:19

open the doors and climbed

onto the tracks.

0:02:190:02:21

Simon Clemison reports.

0:02:210:02:29

The moment some rail passengers

dispensed with the train.

I will

0:02:350:02:39

pass to you.

We have been stuck on

the train for 2.5 hours, luckily now

0:02:390:02:45

we can walk down the tracks, as you

can see, everyone is getting out

0:02:450:02:49

from the train, we are just the

Lewisham station.

The operator has

0:02:490:02:54

warned people against having online,

and said turning off the power cause

0:02:540:02:59

further delays.

Looking forward to

getting home and having a cup of

0:02:590:03:02

tea.

In Devon which has been hit

hard by the snow, hospitals have

0:03:020:03:06

been treating the injured. There

have been appeals to the owners of

0:03:060:03:10

4x4s to come forward to help ferry

patients and staff in an hour. Work

0:03:100:03:14

which has continued overnight at one

hospital. But did you know, this...

0:03:140:03:20

We'll also in the forecast. Flood

warnings were in place today, both

0:03:200:03:26

here and the south-west coast where

the railway has been closed once

0:03:260:03:29

again, and in the north-east.

Elsewhere, contacted snow and rain

0:03:290:03:33

which quickly freezes will produce

icy conditions that anyone

0:03:330:03:38

travelling in large parts of the UK

this morning, with more falls

0:03:380:03:41

expected in Scotland. After snow

which has left people spending a

0:03:410:03:45

night in their car, or in a luggage

rack of a train, all eyes will be on

0:03:450:03:50

the transport network again today.

Heathrow says it hopes to run a near

0:03:500:03:54

full schedule, but many rail

services will be disrupted.

0:03:540:03:58

Let's find out what the situation

is like in the north-east

0:03:580:04:01

of England this morning.

0:04:010:04:05

Our reporter Alison

Freeman is in Alnwick.

0:04:050:04:08

It is dark where you are, tell us

what it is like? I am above and you

0:04:080:04:13

really quiet A1, this believe it or

not is their main route from the

0:04:130:04:18

north-east of Scotland, at this time

of the morning you would expect to

0:04:180:04:22

see more traffic on the road here.

Police are telling people to stay

0:04:220:04:26

away if they can, there are sections

of the road that they are clearing,

0:04:260:04:31

and as it is cleared wind is blowing

large drifts of snow over and in

0:04:310:04:36

some places yesterday it is down to

one carriageway. Motorist is asked

0:04:360:04:40

to find other routes around the A1,

and they are getting stuck, and so

0:04:400:04:45

the motor rescue has to come and

walk people to safety. Police in

0:04:450:04:49

those restricted areas are trying to

take police escorted convoys along,

0:04:490:04:53

to get them back up to Scotland or

back down to Alnwick if they can. On

0:04:530:04:58

top of lack we are expecting

freezing temperatures, icy

0:04:580:05:03

conditions, and on top of that, in

the north-east, we have Flood

0:05:030:05:06

warnings at the moment, they stretch

from Sunderland up to windy day,

0:05:060:05:11

those warnings in place across the

south-west and Cornwall, parts of

0:05:110:05:15

Devon and parts of Dorset could be

at risk as well. One good bit of

0:05:150:05:20

news is that the M6 in two across

the Pennines reopened -- and 62. The

0:05:200:05:27

message from the police is, please

don't travel unless you absolutely

0:05:270:05:31

have to, to let the emergency

services do what they absolutely

0:05:310:05:38

have to do, like transporting

patients to hospital.

0:05:380:05:44

Chris Fawkes will have a full

weather forecast in around ten

0:05:440:05:47

minutes time.

0:05:470:05:48

To the rest of the day's news:

0:05:480:05:51

The Prime Minister's

speech on Britain leaving

0:05:510:05:53

the European Union has been given

a cautious welcome by both the Leave

0:05:530:05:56

and Remain wings of her own party.

0:05:560:05:58

The speech set out Theresa May's

vision of the UK's future trading

0:05:580:06:01

relationship with the EU.

0:06:010:06:03

Here's our Political

Correspondent's assessment.

0:06:030:06:04

Theresa May is a Prime Minister who

governs by a big speeches. She is a

0:06:040:06:08

politician who goes off the page

rather than an off-the-cuff,

0:06:080:06:11

prepares what is going to say in

advance and then read without to the

0:06:110:06:16

assembled audience. She has lots of

audience to talk to in that speech

0:06:160:06:19

yesterday, she had to talk to

Europe, she had to talk to her own

0:06:190:06:23

party, and the two wings of it with

their very different in singsong

0:06:230:06:27

Brexit, and of course to us as

voters in the country. Broadly

0:06:270:06:30

speaking it seems to have gone down

relatively well at this stage. She

0:06:300:06:35

said that yes, the UK would leave

those big structures of the European

0:06:350:06:39

Union, the single market and the

customs union, but beyond that she

0:06:390:06:44

wanted as much cooperation as

possible. The big question is

0:06:440:06:46

whether Europe will be willing to

entertain at in the coming rounds of

0:06:460:06:51

negotiation. As things stand, both

wings of their own party, those who

0:06:510:06:55

are sceptical about Russells and

those who are more favourable

0:06:550:06:58

towards it, seem to have given it

for now a cautious welcome. --

0:06:580:07:02

Brussels.

0:07:020:07:04

Two men have been arrested by police

investigating an explosion

0:07:040:07:06

in Leicester that

killed five people.

0:07:060:07:08

The men, both in their 30s

and from East Anglia,

0:07:080:07:11

are being held on suspicion

of conspiracy to cause an explosion.

0:07:110:07:14

Three other men, also in their 30s,

were arrested on suspicion

0:07:140:07:17

of manslaughter on Wednesday

and continue to be questioned

0:07:170:07:19

by detectives.

0:07:190:07:20

A new camera has been designed

to spot abnormal cells before

0:07:200:07:23

the develop into oesophageal cancer,

one of the hardest form

0:07:230:07:28

of the disease to detect.

0:07:280:07:29

The work by doctors and physicists

in Cambridge has been paid

0:07:290:07:32

for by public donations

to the campaign, "Stand

0:07:320:07:34

up to Cancer".

0:07:340:07:39

The first trials of the camera

are about to begin on patients.

0:07:390:07:43

If we could shift the proportion of

people diagnosed at an earlier

0:07:430:07:50

stage, even if we could shift to buy

as much as 10- 20%, that will start

0:07:500:07:55

to have an impact and maybe we can

do better than that. Then we will

0:07:550:07:59

have of course a huge benefit for

the individuals concerned in terms

0:07:590:08:03

of reducing the side-effects from

the treatment, giving them a better

0:08:030:08:06

prognosis and curing their cancer,

but also to society more broadly.

0:08:060:08:11

People who are obese or who smoke

should not be refused or delayed

0:08:110:08:15

from having surgery by local

health authorities -

0:08:150:08:17

that's according to the Academy

of Medical Royal Colleges.

0:08:170:08:19

The body, which represents 24

medical colleges and health

0:08:190:08:22

faculties, said rationing surgery

based on patients' lifestyles

0:08:220:08:24

would "widen inequalities

in access to healthcare".

0:08:240:08:29

The body which sets the rules

for world football is expected

0:08:290:08:32

to approve the use of video replay

technology throughout the sport

0:08:320:08:35

when it meets in Zurich today.

0:08:350:08:37

The system has been used on a trial

basis in several countries including

0:08:370:08:41

some cup matches in England.

0:08:410:08:42

But it has proved controversial,

as our sports correspondent,

0:08:420:08:44

Richard Conway reports.

0:08:440:08:52

The days when football got it wrong.

Some of the game's greatest

0:08:530:08:57

injustices.

Schumacher came out...

And the very reason the sport's

0:08:570:09:03

lawmakers must now decide whether to

give the go-ahead to video

0:09:030:09:07

technology. A positive vote could

see it use it this summer's Russian

0:09:070:09:11

World Cup. If approved referees

could call for help on goals,

0:09:110:09:15

penalties, red cards and mistaken

identity. A two-year experiment of

0:09:150:09:19

the system is coming to an end and

the man who helped devise it knows

0:09:190:09:24

what is at stake.

Focus must not eat

and maintain minimum interference in

0:09:240:09:29

the flow and emotion of the game,

otherwise we will spoil football.

At

0:09:290:09:35

critics say that is except the what

is happening. This week's FA Cup

0:09:350:09:39

game against Ottoman Russia was part

of the trial, but lengthy delays and

0:09:390:09:43

confusion over decisions have led to

calls to delay or cancel the plans.

0:09:430:09:49

-- between Tottenham.

The holy Grail

is the FA Cup, if it is not ready we

0:09:490:09:57

cannot put it into our most

prestigious tournament.

Fifa insists

0:09:570:09:59

the system works as the video replay

trial has shown, those who think

0:09:590:10:05

technology will stop the controversy

has another thing coming.

0:10:050:10:08

Gary Oldman has told BBC News

of his excitement at the prospect

0:10:080:10:11

of landing his first Academy award.

0:10:110:10:13

The 'Tinker Tailor, Soldier Spy'

star is tipped to win Best Actor

0:10:130:10:17

for his role as Winston Churchill

in the film, 'Darkest Hour'.

0:10:170:10:21

Speaking at a party ahead

of tomorrow's Oscars ceremony

0:10:210:10:23

in Los Angeles he said

it was an honour to play the former

0:10:230:10:27

Prime Minister.

0:10:270:10:28

I am feeling, I'm feeling very good

about it. Sunday would be, these

0:10:280:10:35

things will be what they will be,

but either they call your name or

0:10:350:10:39

they don't. But the ride has been,

the Right has been enjoyable, and to

0:10:390:10:44

be recognised for playing Winston

Churchill, it is... The prize in

0:10:440:10:53

itself.

A lot of people saying he is

in with a real chance. I think it

0:10:530:11:00

might be, we will see. Shall we look

at the front pages? We have just a

0:11:000:11:07

couple of snow stories. People are

coping with the situations vary in.

0:11:070:11:13

One of them,:

0:11:130:11:17

Four days of snow may have brought

the UK grinding to a halt

0:11:170:11:21

but on many farms it

is business as usual.

0:11:210:11:23

One family near Gisburn

in Lancashire have found

0:11:230:11:26

a novel way to help their new-born

lambs survive the 'Beast

0:11:260:11:30

from the East' by putting

them in their aga.

0:11:300:11:32

We advise you don't

try this at home.

0:11:320:11:36

But according to the farmer he pops

them in for a quick ten minutes

0:11:360:11:39

to warm them up.

0:11:390:11:43

again, don't try that at home. You

can't say that too often, do not do

0:11:430:11:48

that with your pets, do not put them

in the aga. You have been sending in

0:11:480:11:57

stories about snow heroes, little

things people are doing that make

0:11:570:12:00

what can be a pretty bleak situation

a bit it. People who go the extra

0:12:000:12:06

mile to help their local communities

over the past few days, people

0:12:060:12:10

perhaps stuck, such as: after being

caught in the snow on the 852, Lewis

0:12:100:12:23

Knight proceeded to help people that

were stuck behind a jackknifed

0:12:230:12:26

lorry, four hours into the night.

Working alongside two police

0:12:260:12:30

officers, a farmer

0:12:300:12:31

Working alongside two police

officers, a farmer in their tractor

0:12:310:12:34

and woodchip is, they were able to

rescue 40 cars in just one day.

0:12:340:12:38

That's nice. Sometimes they are big

things and sometimes they are small

0:12:380:12:43

things. Carrying on at her sister,

this is Helen, who cares for the

0:12:430:12:48

elderly in her home, that is in the

Pendle area, which was on weather

0:12:480:12:55

alert last night, she headed out for

her nightshift,

0:12:550:12:57

alert last night, she headed out for

her nightshift, decked out in huge

0:12:570:13:00

boots, you get the idea, look at the

picture there. Waterproof rucksack

0:13:000:13:04

filled with hot coffee, hats,

scarves and blankets. A very proud

0:13:040:13:09

family member there, and just a

little things, people going the

0:13:090:13:13

extra mile, and well-equipped with

flasks, something warm, getting out

0:13:130:13:18

there and doing some good. If you

want to nominate your snow heroes,

0:13:180:13:22

get in touch.

0:13:220:13:24

A set of commuters took matters

in their own hands last night

0:13:240:13:29

after their journey

was disrupted by snow and ice.

0:13:290:13:32

They jumped

off their stranded train and began

0:13:320:13:34

walking down the tracks.

0:13:340:13:35

Southeastern trains said

the passengers in Lewisham

0:13:350:13:37

could have been killed

and delayed the company

0:13:370:13:39

from resolving the problem.

0:13:390:13:45

Good morning to you.

0:13:450:13:47

Good morning to you. Can you go

through the sequence of events for

0:13:470:13:51

us, when was the first time you

realise there was a problem?

I am in

0:13:510:13:56

Kent, just south of Maidstone. We

realised there was a problem when

0:13:560:14:00

the train stopped for quite a

lengthy period. Shortly after we

0:14:000:14:05

were told there was a train in front

that had trouble going up a kill --

0:14:050:14:09

up the hill because it could not

get...

What happened next?

We waited

0:14:090:14:14

and we waited. There were some

announcements saying they were

0:14:140:14:18

waiting and we didn't have a lot of

information. It did not take long

0:14:180:14:22

before, it must have been an hour

before the power went, the train

0:14:220:14:26

just went on to emergency lighting.

And what do you know about what the

0:14:260:14:31

other passengers on the train in

front you'd?

Mostly we know what we

0:14:310:14:35

heard on Twitter, that the conduct

and -- conductor and driver of the

0:14:350:14:42

train said that we were getting more

information than they had. They were

0:14:420:14:47

so close to their destination, and

took matters into their own hands

0:14:470:14:51

and a few got off, which I can

guess, we were on the train going a

0:14:510:14:55

long distance, we didn't have much

opportunity, and getting off

0:14:550:14:59

wouldn't have helped us, but those

going short journeys thought they

0:14:590:15:02

could get off and get onto buses and

things, and that caused them to turn

0:15:020:15:06

the power off.

As you are explaining

that we are seeing some of the

0:15:060:15:10

images of people doing exactly as

you say, just getting off the train.

0:15:100:15:13

It calls a lot more problems, didn't

it, which you then were caught up

0:15:130:15:18

in?

Yes. We were in a situation

where the lights totally went out on

0:15:180:15:24

our train, when it went on to

emergency power. It knocked off the

0:15:240:15:29

heating. We then sat in total dark

misfit 2-3 hours while we waited.

0:15:290:15:35

Conductors were walking through the

train, the passengers knew more than

0:15:350:15:39

he did. It took a very long time and

everything was backed up all the way

0:15:390:15:44

into London, no train passed us the

whole time we were stopped, nothing

0:15:440:15:48

went in or out.

We are watching some

of these pictures of people walking

0:15:480:15:52

along and making their way to the

platform, officially of course the

0:15:520:15:57

railway company is saying, this is

absolutely the wrong thing to do,

0:15:570:16:01

very dangerous, causing ongoing

problems, I don't know, what do you

0:16:010:16:05

think when you see those pictures,

and you saw it people did?

It was

0:16:050:16:09

quite different to the scenario on

my train. Everyone on my train was

0:16:090:16:14

calm and nobody got off, I didn't

see anyone walking past. At first I

0:16:140:16:19

was quite shocked when I heard

people were doing that, I work in

0:16:190:16:25

mental health and the compassion to

understand why people did things

0:16:250:16:29

kicks in, and they felt they were so

close to their destination so

0:16:290:16:34

walking 100 metres to their station,

considering the power was turned

0:16:340:16:39

off. The people on my train still

had an hour of their journey, they

0:16:390:16:45

had no chance of getting home if the

train didn't run. So they had a

0:16:450:16:49

little bit more resilience of our

train. But I can get why people did

0:16:490:16:53

what they did, baby and our, two

hours, they could have waited

0:16:530:16:56

longer, -- maybe. But you could see

there was a lot of pent up

0:16:560:17:02

frustration that came out, they were

probably on a much busier train,

0:17:020:17:06

everyone had a seat on mine.

Thank

you for sharing your story with us,

0:17:060:17:09

glad you are OK and it is all sorted

out this morning.

0:17:090:17:13

So frustrating when you are so close

to the platform but at the same

0:17:190:17:22

time, safety. Let's find out how the

weather is looking today. Are we

0:17:220:17:28

over the worst of it?

0:17:280:17:31

weather is looking today. Are we

over the worst of it? Good morning.

0:17:310:17:32

Thank you. You over the worst of it

for sure but today, there a risk of

0:17:320:17:38

ice and a big risk of ice I have to

say, also some snow today across

0:17:380:17:42

northern areas bringing the risk of

a few more centimetres in places but

0:17:420:17:46

not as heavy and not as disruptive

as the weather has been I'm pleased

0:17:460:17:50

to say. We have the cold air flowing

in and across much of the country

0:17:500:17:54

but the area is starting to turn a

little less cold from the south, the

0:17:540:17:59

process will continue as we hit

through the weekend. The main

0:17:590:18:02

boundary between those two and

masses is this lump of cloud working

0:18:020:18:05

in across northern England. That is

bringing some snow we weather.

0:18:050:18:09

Again, the wintry stuff around. He

also have freezing rain across

0:18:090:18:13

eastern England, liquid rain that

has a temperature below zero and it

0:18:130:18:18

turns the ice as soon as it hits

roads you can imagine Brits turning

0:18:180:18:22

to ice rink for a while across

eastern England. To take it easy,

0:18:220:18:27

the roads could be dangerous as you

are heading outside this morning.

0:18:270:18:31

The snow will continue working

north, snow showers the eastern

0:18:310:18:35

areas of Scotland and Antrim and

Down but the weather turns cold as

0:18:350:18:38

we see the showers working in, a bit

of snow over the Moz and also the

0:18:380:18:43

Brecon Beacons for a while. Cold for

many of us with temperatures

0:18:430:18:48

struggled to get a freezing,

treading a little less cold in the

0:18:480:18:51

south. Heading through this evening

and overnight, the showers continue

0:18:510:18:56

to push northwards across England

and Wales. Some could be quite

0:18:560:18:59

heavy. So to come across eastern

Scotland, ice will be a major risk

0:18:590:19:03

as we go through the night. Those

temperatures dipping below freezing.

0:19:030:19:08

Watch out for an icy start of the

day for Sunday. Sunday will continue

0:19:080:19:13

the trend of turning slightly less

cold from the south but there will

0:19:130:19:17

be more showers around on Saturday,

they could be quite heavy and the

0:19:170:19:21

winds picking up around the showers,

especially across southern England.

0:19:210:19:26

North, some snow over the high

ground, the hills of north-east

0:19:260:19:29

England and eastern Scotland but at

lower levels, the wintry mix, rain,

0:19:290:19:33

sleet and perhaps a little bit of

smoke to some of those heavy

0:19:330:19:37

showers, temperatures coming up for

degrees also in Edinburgh through

0:19:370:19:41

Sunday. Next week, still a risk of

snow in the far north of Scotland

0:19:410:19:46

but it will continue to turn less

cold and we are looking at some

0:19:460:19:50

styles of rain coming up from the

south at times. On the big pressure

0:19:500:19:54

chart you can see the change taking

place as we had from Sunday into

0:19:540:19:58

Monday. The weather system will

continue to drag up some less cold

0:19:580:20:01

air from southern climes, the better

riches will continue to gradually

0:20:010:20:04

rise but generally staying below

average for the time of year. We are

0:20:040:20:08

over the worst of it today but ice

is a major risk this morning and we

0:20:080:20:13

still have a bit of snow to come

across parts

0:20:130:20:16

still have a bit of snow to come

across parts of the north and east

0:20:160:20:17

today. Chris, thank you. Yes, we

have both ice warnings today.

0:20:170:20:24

We'll bring you the

headlines at 6:30.

0:20:240:20:26

Time now for this

week's Film Review.

0:20:260:20:32

Hello, and welcome to

The Film Review on BBC News.

0:20:410:20:44

To take us through this week's

releases is Mark Kermode.

0:20:440:20:46

What have you been watching?

0:20:460:20:48

We have Red Sparrow,

0:20:480:20:49

the new film starring Jennifer

Lawrence.

0:20:490:20:52

We have A Fantastic Woman,

which is Chile's Oscar entry

0:20:520:20:54

for the Foreign Language

Film Academy Award.

0:20:540:20:57

And Game Night.

0:20:570:20:58

Is it a game or is it real?

0:20:580:21:04

Red Sparrow.

0:21:040:21:07

Yes, so Red Sparrow

is very interesting.

0:21:070:21:08

It's based on a book

by a former CIA operative,

0:21:080:21:11

Jason Matthews.

0:21:110:21:12

Jennifer Lawrence is is a Russian

ballerina who is violently recruited

0:21:120:21:15

to become a sparrow -

an undercover intelligence agent.

0:21:150:21:18

She is taught how

to seduce her prey.

0:21:180:21:21

She is sent to Budapest

on the trail of an American,

0:21:210:21:24

played by Joel Edgerton,

who she meets, and we know she has

0:21:240:21:27

to win his confidence.

0:21:270:21:35

But it seems fairly early

on that they both understand

0:21:350:21:38

what the other is.

0:21:380:21:39

Here is a clip.

0:21:390:21:40

Dominika.

0:21:400:21:40

You know my name?

0:21:400:21:41

You told me.

0:21:410:21:42

You stole my ID from the pool.

0:21:420:21:44

That would be illegal.

0:21:440:21:47

Were you just looking for me?

0:21:470:21:49

I would know where

to find you if I was.

0:21:490:21:55

I'm curious, did you want me to know

you were following me

0:21:550:21:58

or are you just real clumsy?

0:21:580:22:00

You Americans think

we are so interested in you.

0:22:000:22:02

What made you want to

become a translator?

0:22:020:22:04

My mother is ill.

0:22:040:22:06

If I work for the government,

the state helps me to care for her.

0:22:060:22:09

My uncle helped me get the job.

0:22:090:22:11

Your uncle is a very powerful man.

0:22:110:22:13

In my country, if you do not matter

to the men in power,

0:22:130:22:17

you don't matter.

0:22:170:22:17

Hey, I would like to see you again.

0:22:170:22:20

Why, are we going to become friends?

0:22:200:22:22

Is that what you want?

0:22:220:22:23

I don't have any.

0:22:230:22:25

There is a Russian restaurant right

by the opera, have dinner with me.

0:22:250:22:32

So it is an odd movie.

0:22:320:22:33

On the one hand, it looks

like a mainstream glossy thriller.

0:22:330:22:37

It is directed by Francis Lawrence,

who did some of The Hunger Games

0:22:370:22:40

movies and it has English

and American actors speaking

0:22:400:22:43

in Russian accents like that.

0:22:430:22:46

I wasn't sure about that accent!

0:22:460:22:51

But the other side is that it is

nastier than you would expect.

0:22:510:22:55

It was precut from an 18

to get a 15 certificate,

0:22:550:22:58

and in the very first assignment

she has, there is a graphic sexual

0:22:580:23:01

assault when she is sent

to the training camp,

0:23:010:23:04

in which she is led

by Charlotte Rampling.

0:23:040:23:06

It is really quite tough

and distressing and oddly explicit,

0:23:060:23:08

and then the violence,

the outbreaks of violence

0:23:080:23:11

during the movie are

wince-inducing fare.

0:23:110:23:14

I imagine that some people

who are Jennifer Lawrence fans might

0:23:140:23:16

find it hard to take.

0:23:160:23:22

There is an argument

for saying actually,

0:23:220:23:24

it's not glamorising it,

it's saying this is really rough

0:23:240:23:27

and nasty stuff.

0:23:270:23:27

Then you think, well,

Jennifer Lawrence's fans have

0:23:270:23:30

come through Mother!

0:23:300:23:30

She is having a run

of peculiar films.

0:23:300:23:38

Absolutely, and she made that

strange science fiction movie

0:23:390:23:46

which again divided audiences.

0:23:460:23:47

I like the fact she makes bold

and often strange choices.

0:23:470:23:50

I like the fact she

doesn't play it safe.

0:23:500:23:52

She is the centre of the movie.

0:23:520:23:54

It is very changeable tonally,

so sometimes it is almost high camp,

0:23:540:23:57

sometimes it is people

chewing the scenery,

0:23:570:23:59

and sometimes it is really,

you know, nasty - and I mean

0:23:590:24:02

properly nasty, gritty -

and I know some people have

0:24:020:24:05

found that intolerable.

0:24:050:24:06

I think it is interesting.

0:24:060:24:07

I think it is nothing

like as mainstream as I expected it

0:24:070:24:11

to be, and that is for the better,

but it is not for everyone.

0:24:110:24:14

I cannot handle violence

at all, as you know.

0:24:140:24:17

You are not going to embrace it.

0:24:170:24:19

I'm afraid I'm out.

0:24:190:24:20

It is not going to happen.

0:24:200:24:22

However...

0:24:220:24:22

Let me suggest you see

A Fantastic Woman, Chile's entry

0:24:220:24:25

for the Foreign language Film Oscar.

0:24:250:24:26

So the story is Daniela Vega,

who is brilliant as Marina.

0:24:260:24:29

She is a waitress and aspiring

singer who finds herself shut out

0:24:290:24:33

of her own life when her older

partner dies and her family -

0:24:330:24:36

the family of her partner -

suddenly descend and say "You can't

0:24:360:24:39

come to the funeral, the wake,

you cannot stay in the apartment

0:24:390:24:43

you have been living with Orlando

in, you need to give back the car".

0:24:430:24:46

The reason they find her

threatening, not just

0:24:460:24:49

because she is the other woman

with whom Orlando ran off,

0:24:490:24:52

but she is a transgender woman.

0:24:520:24:53

And they consequently think

that she is a threat

0:24:530:24:56

to what they call

their normal lives.

0:24:560:24:58

Throughout the film,

she says "My name is Marina",

0:24:580:25:00

but they refuse to call her that.

0:25:000:25:02

One of the sons calls her Maurice.

0:25:020:25:04

At one point, the wife

calls her Daniel.

0:25:040:25:06

It is about her defining her own

character, finding her own space.

0:25:060:25:09

finding her own space.

0:25:090:25:10

And what is really interesting

is that her name is echoed

0:25:100:25:13

visual motifs

throughout the film.

0:25:130:25:15

It opens with a waterfall,

a seascape on the wall

0:25:150:25:17

of the bedroom.

0:25:170:25:18

The film itself goes

from being classical romance

0:25:180:25:20

to a social realist drama to a weird

Lynchian thriller and at one point,

0:25:200:25:24

it turns into a musical

with levitation sequences.

0:25:240:25:29

I thought it was wonderful.

0:25:290:25:30

I thought Daniela Vega

was wonderful, mesmerising

0:25:300:25:32

in the role.

0:25:320:25:36

You completely understand

and care about her character

0:25:360:25:38

and the situation

she is in, and I thought

0:25:380:25:41

it was a really good piece of work.

0:25:410:25:43

And I loved it so much,

I saw it and I went straight back

0:25:430:25:47

and watched it again a second time

0:25:470:25:49

because I thought there

0:25:490:25:50

was so much in it.

0:25:500:25:51

I think you will really like it.

0:25:510:25:53

There is a recommendation!

0:25:530:25:54

Fantastic.

0:25:540:25:54

I look forward to that.

0:25:540:25:56

Game Night.

0:25:560:25:56

Yes.

0:25:560:25:56

I have read quite a lot about this

film and I still don't understand

0:25:560:26:00

what it is about.

0:26:000:26:01

OK, so it is - basically,

here is the best way

0:26:010:26:04

of describing it.

0:26:040:26:06

Game Night - so therefore it

lifts its rifts from The Game,

0:26:060:26:11

the David Fincher

movie, and Date Night.

0:26:110:26:13

Hence Game Night.

0:26:130:26:14

There are two characters

who are obsessed with games.

0:26:140:26:16

They agree to take part in a murder

mystery but when it starts off,

0:26:160:26:20

maybe it is not a game,

maybe it is real.

0:26:200:26:23

Maybe this loaded gun is not a prop.

0:26:230:26:25

Maybe it's real.

0:26:250:26:26

That is the thrill.

0:26:260:26:27

It is a kind of an idea

we have seen done before.

0:26:270:26:30

If you think about films

like After Hours or Into the Night,

0:26:300:26:34

a normal couple gets sucked

into strange underworld crime.

0:26:340:26:36

However, it begins with them having

game night with their friends.

0:26:360:26:39

Here is a clip.

0:26:390:26:40

Come on, Max!

0:26:400:26:41

And go, go, go!

0:26:410:26:42

Oh, easy - the famous actor

we met at the airport

0:26:420:26:45

about eight years ago.

0:26:450:26:46

Who?

0:26:460:26:47

Only actor we have met

at an airport who's famous.

0:26:470:26:52

Bobby Flay?

0:26:520:26:58

He was in front of us at the Sbarro?

0:26:580:27:00

We wondered why he wasn't

in the first class lounge.

0:27:000:27:03

Oh, yes, yes...

0:27:030:27:03

Who was that?

0:27:030:27:04

Goddamn it!

0:27:040:27:05

Max, there's is a whole room

of people to help you out.

0:27:050:27:08

Use us.

0:27:080:27:09

Good point.

0:27:090:27:09

He was the Incredible Hulk!

0:27:090:27:11

Eric Bana.

0:27:110:27:11

Other one.

0:27:110:27:12

Um, Mark Ruffalo?

0:27:120:27:12

Other one.

0:27:120:27:13

Lou Ferrigno!

0:27:130:27:14

Holy...

0:27:140:27:14

Primal Fear!

0:27:140:27:14

Richard Gere never played

the Incredible Hulk!

0:27:140:27:16

Time!

0:27:160:27:17

Ed Norton.

0:27:170:27:23

Oh!

0:27:230:27:24

Primal Fear!

0:27:240:27:25

That is why those

games are so annoying.

0:27:250:27:27

But you laughed all

the way through that.

0:27:270:27:29

I have this rule that a comedy can

only count as a comedy if it makes

0:27:290:27:33

you laugh more than six times.

0:27:330:27:35

You laughed more than six

times in that clip.

0:27:350:27:38

Here's the thing.

0:27:380:27:38

I looked at the trailer and thought

it is going to be that movie we have

0:27:380:27:43

seen umpteen versions of but I got

away with it because the cast gave

0:27:430:27:47

it their best, the gags are funny.

0:27:470:27:48

I do think that gag

about Richard Gere, that is good,

0:27:480:27:51

and that standard

of gag is kept up

0:27:510:27:54

all the way through.

0:27:540:27:55

Even through the set

pieces and the very sort

0:27:550:27:57

of contrived set-ups.

0:27:570:27:58

They bump into people they think

are playing being criminals

0:27:580:28:01

but they are real

criminals, or are they?

0:28:010:28:03

That goes on all the way through

the film, but I kept laughing.

0:28:030:28:06

It kept me laughing,

and nobody was more surprised

0:28:060:28:09

than I was that that was the case.

0:28:090:28:11

OK.

0:28:110:28:11

I am still not 100% sure.

0:28:110:28:14

But anyway, OK.

0:28:140:28:14

A Fantastic Woman

is one you will love.

0:28:140:28:17

I look forward to that and I am sure

about The Shape of Water.

0:28:170:28:20

I love it.

0:28:200:28:21

I think it's wonderful.

0:28:210:28:24

Yes, I like it.

0:28:240:28:25

Do you feel as strongly as I do?

0:28:250:28:27

I loved it in a curious way,

but I enjoyed every moment.

0:28:270:28:31

It is great it has been nominated.

0:28:310:28:33

It looks wonderful, brilliant score,

fantastic performances,

0:28:330:28:34

and I have seen it three times

and I will watch it again,

0:28:340:28:38

because it is a lovely fairytale.

0:28:380:28:40

It is Splash meets the Creature

From The Black Lagoon,

0:28:400:28:42

and that's an ideal film for me.

0:28:420:28:47

Yes, it is best out.

0:28:470:28:49

And should I say see

it on a big screen?

0:28:490:28:51

Because visually,

it is so impressive.

0:28:510:28:53

Yes.

0:28:530:28:53

When it comes out on DVD,

I will tell you the opposite.

0:28:530:28:57

I will lie.

0:28:570:28:57

You will have it in

the best DVD category.

0:28:570:29:00

Yeah.

0:29:000:29:00

So best DVD for this

week is Florida Project.

0:29:000:29:03

It is a shame it wasn't more

represented at the awards.

0:29:030:29:08

I mean, everything is coming up.

0:29:080:29:10

Willem Dafoe is the only one

who has been represented.

0:29:100:29:13

I think it is great.

0:29:130:29:14

It is a humanist, wonderful,

modern version of Our Gang

0:29:140:29:17

brilliantly firected

from the director of Tangerine.

0:29:170:29:19

Such a shame it has fallen into one

Supporting Actor nod.

0:29:190:29:22

But that tells you what you need

to know about awards -

0:29:220:29:25

they are nonsense.

0:29:250:29:26

Wel, thanks!

0:29:260:29:27

Thanks for that thought!

0:29:270:29:28

But it is beautifully made

and it is starring some people -

0:29:280:29:31

some of the people in it have not

had formal acting training,

0:29:310:29:34

alongside people like Willem Dafoe.

0:29:340:29:37

And that's what - the real genius

of it is you get someone

0:29:370:29:41

who is a seasoned

professional against

0:29:410:29:44

a first-timer and

suddenly, it works.

0:29:440:29:45

There is no sense of having

an imbalance between

0:29:450:29:48

the performances because actually,

it is because the director does

0:29:480:29:51

a brilliant job of putting

everyone right in the space,

0:29:510:29:53

and, you know, the whole film takes

place just beyond the boundaries

0:29:530:29:57

of Disney World, so it is like

you have been cast out of the magic

0:29:570:30:01

kingdom into this netherworld.

0:30:010:30:03

It has a sort of fairytale feel.

0:30:030:30:07

Into people in real

American poverty,

0:30:070:30:09

alongside Disney World.

0:30:090:30:10

Living in a hotel designed

as a resort hotel, but has become

0:30:100:30:13

a hotel for people who are in

poverty, who are homeless,

0:30:130:30:16

yet there is such vibrancy, such

life, the characters are wonderful.

0:30:160:30:19

I thought it was terrific.

0:30:190:30:21

I thought it was going to be

an awards contender,

0:30:210:30:23

get everything,

and that just shows...

0:30:230:30:25

get everything,

and that just shows...

0:30:250:30:27

To be fair, you did say that -

I wasn't going to remind you.

0:30:270:30:31

I am the first to admit

I can't predict awards.

0:30:310:30:34

Ut there we go, it should have

been nominated for more.

0:30:340:30:37

Should have been a contender.

0:30:370:30:38

Thank you very much, Mark.

0:30:380:30:40

More next week.

0:30:400:30:40

Before we go, there are all the film

news and reviews from across the BBC

0:30:400:30:45

online - you know

the address, I am sure.

0:30:450:30:47

All our previous programmes

are on the iPlayer as well.

0:30:470:30:51

That is it for this week.

0:30:510:30:51

Enjoy your cinema going.

0:30:510:30:52

See you next time.

0:30:520:30:54

Goodbye.

0:30:540:31:01

Hello, this is Breakfast

with Tina Daheley and Charlie Stayt.

0:31:070:31:09

Here's a summary of today's main

stories from BBC News.

0:31:090:31:13

Freezing weather conditions

are continuing to cause major travel

0:31:130:31:16

disruption across the UK.

0:31:160:31:17

Weather warnings of snow and ice

remain in place in large parts

0:31:170:31:21

of the country and the Environment

Agency has now issued 15 flood

0:31:210:31:24

warnings, mainly in the south-west

and north-east coast areas.

0:31:240:31:28

The police had to be called

to south-east London last night

0:31:280:31:31

after passengers on a stranded train

in Lewisham decided to jump

0:31:310:31:35

on the tracks and walk

to the nearest station.

0:31:350:31:43

Earlier we spoke to Brian who was on

the train behind that one, he told

0:31:430:31:48

us about the impact it had on his

journey.

They felt they were so

0:31:480:31:52

close to their destination, there

for it was less of an issue then

0:31:520:31:56

walking 100 metres to a station,

with the power turned off.

0:31:560:31:59

walking 100 metres to a station,

with the power turned off. People on

0:31:590:32:00

my train had a long way left, they

had almost an hour of their journey

0:32:000:32:05

to do, they had no chance of getting

home if the train didn't run, so you

0:32:050:32:10

know, they had a little more

resilience on that train. But I can

0:32:100:32:13

get why people did what they did,

maybe an hour, two hours, they could

0:32:130:32:18

have waited longer, but I can see

obviously there is a lot of

0:32:180:32:22

frustration that came out, they were

probably on a much busier train than

0:32:220:32:25

mine, on mine everyone had a seat so

it wasn't so much of a problem.

0:32:250:32:30

Police in Dublin have made several

arrests after a police -- a

0:32:300:32:35

supermarket was reportedly looted

last night. The one social media

0:32:350:32:40

shows the Lidl store being attacked

with a mechanical digger, you can

0:32:400:32:44

see that the mechanical digger

knocking into the building itself,

0:32:440:32:47

the German chain described it as a

serious incident which took place

0:32:470:32:51

when the store was closed and no

staff were present.

0:32:510:32:54

The Prime Minister's

speech on Britain leaving

0:32:540:32:56

the European Union has been given

a cautious welcome by both the Leave

0:32:560:33:00

and Remain wings of her party.

0:33:000:33:02

Theresa May set out her vision

of the UK's future trading

0:33:020:33:04

relationship with the EU and called

for concesssions on all sides.

0:33:040:33:07

She said she was confident remaining

differences over a draft legal

0:33:070:33:10

agreement could be resolved,

allowing trade talks to get

0:33:100:33:13

under way.

0:33:130:33:14

Two men have been arrested by police

investigating an explosion

0:33:140:33:16

in Leicester that

killed five people.

0:33:160:33:23

The men, both in their 30s

and from East Anglia,

0:33:230:33:25

are being held on suspicion

of conspiracy to cause an explosion.

0:33:250:33:28

Three other men, also in their 30s,

were arrested on suspicion

0:33:280:33:31

of manslaughter on Wednesday

and continue to be questioned

0:33:310:33:34

by detectives.

0:33:340:33:34

Gary Oldman has told BBC News

of his excitement at the prospect

0:33:340:33:38

of landing his first Academy award.

0:33:380:33:39

The 'Tinker Tailor, Soldier Spy'

star is tipped to win Best Actor

0:33:390:33:43

for his role as Winston Churchill

in the film, 'Darkest Hour'.

0:33:430:33:46

Speaking at a party ahead

of tomorrow's Oscars ceremony

0:33:460:33:48

in Los Angeles he said

it was an honour to play the former

0:33:480:33:51

Prime Minister.

0:33:510:33:52

I am feeling, I'm feeling

very good about it.

0:33:520:33:57

Sunday would be, these things

will be what they will be,

0:33:570:34:02

either they call your

name or they don't.

0:34:020:34:06

But the ride has been,

the ride has been enjoyable,

0:34:060:34:09

and to be recognised

for playing Winston

0:34:090:34:12

is...

0:34:120:34:17

It's the prize in itself.

0:34:170:34:20

I think he will win the big prize.

It will be great if he did, I was

0:34:200:34:26

trying to think of a clever segue

there, he has been in the business

0:34:260:34:31

for a long time, he should have won

the award, and your first story is

0:34:310:34:35

about someone who people think could

win a big award. Very good. We are

0:34:350:34:42

talking about Katarina

Johnson-Thompson, always had

0:34:420:34:45

potential, held back by injury, may

be the lack of confidence or

0:34:450:34:49

conviction at the crucial moments

but she has put that behind

0:34:490:34:53

her, she has won her first world

title. Sheep puts it down to

0:34:530:34:58

relocating from Liverpool to the

south of France, -- she puts it

0:34:580:35:02

down. She says she really has missed

her sausage dogs. She says she has

0:35:020:35:07

been very lonely without her dogs.

Worth it in the end. It has

0:35:070:35:17

certainly paid off her though with

her first world title in the Pentax

0:35:170:35:21

won at the world indoor games in

Birmingham. She sealed the victory

0:35:210:35:24

with another win, this was in the

800 metres, two and what she said

0:35:240:35:28

has been a wobbly but in the end

dominant day as she set a new

0:35:280:35:32

personal best in shotput and came

out on top in the long jump as well.

0:35:320:35:36

It came after she suffered this

appointment at the world outdoor

0:35:360:35:39

championships last summer.

I can't

believe it, I have dreamt of this

0:35:390:35:44

for so long and to come here and do

it in the home championships, I have

0:35:440:35:48

been so happy to rectify it, and all

my family are here today, that this

0:35:480:35:52

not normally happen, I went through

a hard year last year, and I just

0:35:520:35:57

wanted my family to see me actually

achieve something, so I am so happy

0:35:570:36:01

they got to be hero witness it, and

they were here for every event. I

0:36:010:36:05

still can't believe it really.

She

is only 25, many years left to go,

0:36:050:36:12

and for so long in the shadow really

of Jessica Ennis-Hill, but now she

0:36:120:36:16

has emerged and is finally living up

to her potential. And now the

0:36:160:36:21

Commonwealth games is just a few

weeks away. This is in the Pentax on

0:36:210:36:24

other -- rather than the decathlon,

here she is getting her gold medal.

0:36:240:36:33

Her long-time rival was missing from

this event but we mustn't take this

0:36:330:36:38

away from her, and Jessica

Ennis-Hill's career really took up

0:36:380:36:42

after she won the indoor

Championships. There could be more

0:36:420:36:49

to come today, Laura Miller is

looking to follow up the bronze she

0:36:490:36:52

won in the 3000 metres, with a 1500

metre. -- Muir. On to the cricket,

0:36:520:37:02

New Zealand are chasing 235 to win,

the tourist batsmen struggled in a

0:37:020:37:13

difficult pitch in Wellington, none

of the managed to get a 50. The

0:37:130:37:16

captain was in the top scorer with

48 as his side were all out for 234.

0:37:160:37:21

Ben Stokes took a great catch early

on to dismiss: growth of 49, and

0:37:210:37:28

just a few moments ago, another

wicket for Moeen Ali means that New

0:37:280:37:32

Zealand have now slumped to 97-

four, off just over 21 overs. So

0:37:320:37:39

maybe it will be closer than we

thought, with England's total of

0:37:390:37:43

235. Great Britain have added

another medal on day three of the

0:37:430:37:49

world track championships in the

Netherlands. Mark Stewart won bronze

0:37:490:37:53

in the men's points race which is

over 160 laps. Australia's camera

0:37:530:38:00

may retain his title with home rider

Jan Willem van Schip taking silver.

0:38:000:38:04

Britain now have four medals, one

gold to Silvers and the bronze.

0:38:040:38:14

It was a difficult evening

for Britain's Elinor Barker

0:38:150:38:17

as she was caught up in this crash

during the elimination race

0:38:170:38:20

in the women's omnium.

0:38:200:38:21

She went into the fourth and final

event, the points race,

0:38:210:38:24

in the bronze medal position,

but couldn't manage to hold

0:38:240:38:27

on to it, finishing sixth overall

just a nine points off a medal.

0:38:270:38:31

Kirsten Vild took gold

for the Netherlands.

0:38:310:38:33

Middlesbrough are into

the Championship play-off places,

0:38:330:38:35

after beating Leeds 3-0.

0:38:350:38:36

It was a hat-trick from striker

Patrick Bamford, that pushed Boro,

0:38:360:38:39

into the top 6.

0:38:390:38:45

This game surviving the weather,

but three Championship games today

0:38:450:38:50

have already been postponed,

so do check before setting off.

0:38:500:38:58

Despite the weather all seven

of today's Premier League fixtures

0:39:050:39:08

are expected to go ahead.

0:39:080:39:09

The match of the day sees

0:39:090:39:11

Liverpool welcome Newcastle United

manager Rafael Benitez

0:39:110:39:13

back to Anfield.

0:39:130:39:13

The Spaniard is unbeaten

against his former club

0:39:130:39:16

and Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp

is expecting a tough time

0:39:160:39:18

against a man he calls a legend.

0:39:180:39:20

We gave enough presence to him, 2-0

up at the home game with play them,

0:39:200:39:24

and at Newcastle, I think he was a

little lucky, so for them, we need

0:39:240:39:32

to be really focused, really

concentrating on that game, and

0:39:320:39:35

yeah, it will be interesting again.

As it stands at the moment although

0:39:350:39:40

the fixtures in the Scottish cup are

due to take base today and tomorrow,

0:39:400:39:44

including premiership leaders Celtic

was Mac matched with the

0:39:440:39:47

championship club Granik Morton.

There is a lot of work going on

0:39:470:39:52

around the stadium, the pitch is

fine, so that is playable for the

0:39:520:39:56

game, so there is a lot of work

going on to make it safe and secure.

0:39:560:40:04

We have played a lot of games, so a

bit of a breather for a few days

0:40:040:40:10

won't do us any harm. But the guys

trained very well, and we are ready

0:40:100:40:15

for the game.

0:40:150:40:23

for the game.

Hull F.C. Be

Warrington last night, a bit of a

0:40:230:40:26

badtempered affair, both sides had a

man sent off. Wigan moved up to

0:40:260:40:33

second with a win over Widnes. I

will be telling you what sort of

0:40:330:40:41

sport in what sort of sport you use

this. Good catch. It is like a giant

0:40:410:40:48

squash ball. Any clues? It is quite

similar to squash, but you don't

0:40:480:40:54

need a racket. Thank you.

0:40:540:41:03

need a racket. Thank you. Not all

heroes wear capes, some prefer high

0:41:030:41:07

viz vests. They have been out in

force on the streets of Bristol

0:41:070:41:11

keeping people safe in the snow.

0:41:110:41:16

Their mission is to make our streets

safer. These are the community snow

0:41:160:41:21

wardens.

With get on with it,

everyone have spades?

I like being a

0:41:210:41:27

part of the community and people

appreciate it, when I am out people

0:41:270:41:31

say thank you, and it is nice.

Trained by Bristol City Council in

0:41:310:41:36

how to keep themselves safe and how

to clear footpaths for their

0:41:360:41:39

neighbours, there has not been a

great need for their services in

0:41:390:41:43

recent years. Is this the first time

you have used it in anger?

This is

0:41:430:41:48

the first time.

Why do you do it?

If

there is no in difficulty moving

0:41:480:41:55

around, the problem is ours, if not

someone else's. One that we sold

0:41:550:42:03

ourselves. The community is as

important as family. Because in a

0:42:030:42:09

way you always have your community,

you may not always have your family.

0:42:090:42:13

As vehicles at slip and slide their

way along these streets, most people

0:42:130:42:17

here have opted to travel on foot,

so clear pavements are much

0:42:170:42:21

appreciated.

If we clear at first it

is easiest...

But as we struggle to

0:42:210:42:28

cope with whether many of us now

rarely see in much of the UK, for

0:42:280:42:35

Graham's daughter Annie, visiting

from Ukraine, this is a holiday.

I

0:42:350:42:41

do live in Ukraine, so it is about

-14 when I left, so yes, it is

0:42:410:42:47

slightly chilly there as well. It is

quite funny coming back a few days

0:42:470:42:51

and having this year in the UK. --

having this here.

We are only around

0:42:510:42:57

half a mile away from the centre of

Bristol, but as you can see, a lot

0:42:570:43:02

of these roads are really still

covered in snow. When you think

0:43:020:43:05

about it, it does not matter how

good a job is done clearing our

0:43:050:43:09

motorways and clearing out a roads,

if you can't get 80 front door than

0:43:090:43:13

what is the point? That is where the

community snow wardens come in. As

0:43:130:43:18

much as their efforts are

appreciated, floor would make life

0:43:180:43:21

in this city much easier. Until that

happens, these volunteers will be

0:43:210:43:26

out in force and thankfully in both

senses of the word, there is plenty

0:43:260:43:30

of grit.

0:43:300:43:37

of grit. If we think the weather has

been bad here, whether in other

0:43:370:43:41

parts of the world has been worse.

How do people cope in countries

0:43:410:43:45

where subzero temperatures are the

norm. We can speak to someone from

0:43:450:43:49

Canada, where it is minus nine

degrees. It is properly warm inside

0:43:490:43:55

where you are, but what is it like

outside?

It's pretty bad, even

0:43:550:44:00

though it is just -9, have had -25,

it has been snowing to the last 24

0:44:000:44:07

hours, so it is terrible.

And

extremely cold. Is it one of the

0:44:070:44:12

coldest winters there for you?

Yeah,

I spoke to someone who has been hit

0:44:120:44:18

40 years and she said she has never

seen a worse winter in Canada will

0:44:180:44:22

stop so Lucky me!

It looks stunning,

we are looking at pictures of what

0:44:220:44:27

it is like where you are now, and

over here in the UK in contrast, it

0:44:270:44:31

is all we have been talking about,

there has been major disruption on

0:44:310:44:35

the roads, people stranded in their

cars, delays to trains, planes being

0:44:350:44:39

cancelled, what is it like they're

in terms of, are things carrying on

0:44:390:44:43

as normal?

Yeah Canadians are just

so nonchalant about this though, is

0:44:430:44:49

still see the kids all bundled up at

the bus stop, you still see parents

0:44:490:44:54

with their baby carriage going for a

walk, nobody, we have friends who

0:44:540:44:59

goes around when it is -15, said

people just go about their day and

0:44:590:45:05

that police is prepared, the city is

prepared, the roads are clean, but

0:45:050:45:09

there is obviously still accidents,

so people just go on normal life,

0:45:090:45:13

like they are used to.

You have

lived in the UK and you have lived

0:45:130:45:20

in Canada, how do they both compare

for you? In terms of when we get

0:45:200:45:26

severe weather, snow, bad weather.

Yeah, people are just so much more

0:45:260:45:32

resilient to the bad weather here,

they have issues that they use when

0:45:320:45:37

it is -10, and then they have issues

that they use when it is -20 five.

0:45:370:45:41

So they have all their gear as well.

In the UK it is quite unpredictable,

0:45:410:45:47

but I think the snow is so

predictable here that people are

0:45:470:45:50

just casual about it, and I am

absolutely not!

But we did know to

0:45:500:45:57

be fair that he was coming here, and

in terms of getting around, do

0:45:570:46:02

people sort of stay inside or not

travel as much when they get their

0:46:020:46:06

warning?

0:46:060:46:06

They have winter tyres here and

snowploughs so the roads are cleaned

0:46:130:46:18

up but on the way to work, on a bad,

icy day, you will see a couple of

0:46:180:46:24

accidents but nobody takes, you

know, I am still to come across a

0:46:240:46:30

snow day here, I have never seen a

snow day here.

Wow! What a

0:46:300:46:34

difference. Thank you for speaking

to us this morning. Enjoy the snow.

0:46:340:46:41

I want a pair of those -25 shoes! I

wonder what they look like. I want a

0:46:410:46:48

pair of those shoes. Chris, what do

you think? I don't know if I can get

0:46:480:46:55

my leg up that high but I have my

walking boots on this morning. Very

0:46:550:46:59

good. Very good. That is my 02 your

shoes conversation.

0:46:590:47:05

good. Very good. That is my 02 your

shoes conversation. Some fresh

0:47:050:47:09

snowfall overnight, this is how

things are this morning, a top up so

0:47:090:47:14

55 centimetres of snow across

southern Wales, the snowiest spot.

0:47:140:47:20

It is near Cardiff. That is why

people are struggling to get out and

0:47:200:47:23

about, an enormous volumes of snow.

The risk of icy stretches around

0:47:230:47:27

this morning to watch out for,

meanwhile in southern part that will

0:47:270:47:31

turn less cold as the weekend goes

by. Temperature is still quite a bit

0:47:310:47:35

below average. The state of play,

the cold easterly wind still across

0:47:350:47:41

parts of the UK but the milder winds

trying to push in from the south,

0:47:410:47:45

they will continue to make inroads

across southern areas as we have

0:47:450:47:48

through the weekend boosting the

temperature of little bit. A lot of

0:47:480:47:52

cloud around. These were the front

is bringing snowy weather at the

0:47:520:47:55

moment across Wales and northern

counties of England so fresh

0:47:550:47:58

snowfall is around, snow showers too

the eastern Scotland and the parts

0:47:580:48:03

of eastern England and eastern

Scotland freezing rain. This is

0:48:030:48:06

dangerous, it is liquid rain that

has a temperature below zero and it

0:48:060:48:11

turns the ice as it hits roads. You

cannot greet against it either.

0:48:110:48:17

Because the roadster is turning to

ice shrinks for a time. -- ice

0:48:170:48:22

rinks. A few more centimetres of

snow to come across eastern parts.

0:48:220:48:29

Through Antrim and Down and eastern

Scotland, north-east England, but

0:48:290:48:33

the rain showers pushing into the

south-west, some snow for the moors

0:48:330:48:37

and the Brecon Beacons. Overnight,

temperatures will take a dive so we

0:48:370:48:42

are looking at widespread frost

developing and again, the return of

0:48:420:48:46

icy conditions. Showers pushing

northwards across Wales in

0:48:460:48:50

south-west England in particular.

More snow to come across eastern

0:48:500:48:53

parts of Scotland. It is the ice

risk which is the biggest hazard to

0:48:530:48:57

take us into Sunday morning once

again. Sunday, cloud around but a

0:48:570:49:02

few bright or sunny spells between

the cloud. Showers pushing across

0:49:020:49:06

northern England, eastern Scotland,

some snow within the showers

0:49:060:49:11

particularly over the hills whereas

lower down, a wintry mix. Further

0:49:110:49:15

south, rain showers will be pushing

it through the afternoon as the

0:49:150:49:18

breeze freshens. Temperatures are to

nine degrees in London. Next week,

0:49:180:49:24

the risk of some snow across

northern areas without cold air

0:49:240:49:27

continuing to hang around but it

0:49:270:49:29

northern areas without cold air

continuing to hang around but it

0:49:290:49:29

will turn less cold in the south.

Chris, thank you. We will be

0:49:290:49:34

spending quite a bit of time with

you today. That is why he is wearing

0:49:340:49:39

sensible shoes.

0:49:390:49:40

We'll bring you the

headlines at 7:00.

0:49:400:49:41

But first, it's time for Click.

0:49:410:49:49

This week, 108,000 people landed

in Barcelona with one thing

0:50:040:50:08

on their minds - mobiles.

0:50:080:50:12

Welcome to the Mobile

World Congress.

0:50:120:50:15

The enormous annual expo

where we get to hear

0:50:150:50:20

about the latest in phones,

tablets and, increasingly,

0:50:200:50:22

anything that moves.

0:50:220:50:26

Smartwatch with built-in

projector, anyone?

0:50:260:50:30

And roaming the show

floor for us this year,

0:50:300:50:32

Lara Lewington.

0:50:320:50:33

Despite talk of how many of the big

players are not releasing new phones

0:50:330:50:37

at the show, there are quite a few

new phones on display.

0:50:370:50:42

And the cameras were often

taking centrestage.

0:50:420:50:44

This is Bothie mode.

0:50:440:50:47

We saw how we might interact

with our devices in the future...

0:50:470:50:51

Who needs buttons

when you can gesture?

0:50:510:50:56

It works!

0:50:560:50:58

-and the way they might

interact with us.

0:50:580:51:00

A phone screen that bends.

0:51:000:51:02

Could a bendy phone be the future?

0:51:020:51:04

But to really get to grips

with the latest news here,

0:51:040:51:07

I joined forces with a man

who seriously knows his phones.

0:51:070:51:12

HMD, who brought us the Nokia phone

brand a few years back,

0:51:120:51:18

are again embracing nostalgia

with a 2018 twist with its 8110 4G.

0:51:180:51:22

And no, you do not need to have

it in banana yellow.

0:51:220:51:26

Would you feel silly to take

that out of your pocket?

0:51:260:51:29

Absolutely in that colour.

0:51:290:51:30

I would need it to be

black or any other colour

0:51:300:51:33

except bright yellow.

0:51:330:51:35

Its operating system can

only run a few apps.

0:51:350:51:37

However, they will include

Google Assistant, Google Maps

0:51:370:51:39

and Facebook, although not

Twitter nor WhatsApp.

0:51:390:51:44

But with battery life of up to 25

days, albeit on standby,

0:51:440:51:50

and a price tag of 70 quid, it does

sound like a decent proposition.

0:51:500:51:58

It is, with 4G, too.

0:51:580:52:00

That is all of the data

connectivity you would want

0:52:000:52:02

at a ridiculously low price.

0:52:020:52:04

How nice is it to hold like that,

frame the shot and then use

0:52:040:52:08

the centre button to take the it?

0:52:080:52:09

Even here at the big reveal

of a phone, it was the camera

0:52:090:52:13

that was very much front and centre.

0:52:130:52:16

For a start, the Samsung Galaxy S9

and S9+ shoot better pictures in low

0:52:160:52:20

light, reducing grain by taking

a burst of 12 shots at once.

0:52:200:52:28

The larger S9+ actually has two

lenses that work together to produce

0:52:280:52:34

photos with a blurred background,

in the same way that the iPhone 7

0:52:340:52:38

Plus has done since 2016.

0:52:380:52:40

This, however, is quite

new here in the west.

0:52:400:52:44

It is the first phone I have seen

that has a mechanical aperture

0:52:440:52:48

which can switch from F2.4 to F1.5

to let in more light.

0:52:480:52:56

Now, last year, we saw a Sony phone

which could shoot at 40x slow-mo.

0:52:590:53:03

That's 960 frames per second!

0:53:030:53:05

And, as we predicted then,

that feature is now starting

0:53:050:53:08

to migrate into other phones.

0:53:080:53:11

One problem I had with Sony's

super-slow mode is that you have

0:53:110:53:19

to be incredibly precise in order

to start the recording and capture

0:53:210:53:27

those 0.2 seconds of slow-mo action.

0:53:270:53:28

Not so with the S9.

0:53:280:53:30

It waits until it detects motion

in a certain part of its viewfinder

0:53:300:53:33

and then it fires the slow-mo mode.

0:53:330:53:35

So...

0:53:350:53:36

That should mean you don't miss

those few milliseconds

0:53:360:53:39

of slow-mo magic.

0:53:390:53:42

Hot on the heels of Apple's iPhone

animojis, the S9 lets you create

0:53:420:53:45

and send your own emojis.

0:53:450:53:51

Now, they do look a little

like you but, quite impressively,

0:53:510:53:55

they will copy your expression

using live face tracking.

0:53:550:53:58

Or you can use a pre-set created

from your, ahem, likeness.

0:53:580:54:06

Overall, the S9 and S9+ look

and feel like their predecessors.

0:54:060:54:10

The same size, they're dust-

and water-resistant and they still

0:54:100:54:13

have a headphone socket.

0:54:130:54:15

Hurrah!

0:54:150:54:17

But the screen is

ever-so-slightly longer.

0:54:170:54:18

They will now accept SD cards of up

to 400 gigabytes and they play

0:54:180:54:22

Dolby Atmos sound.

0:54:220:54:30

And where the S8 could be plugged

into a special dock to connect

0:54:310:54:35

to a screen, mouse and keyboard,

the S9 can become a trackpad.

0:54:350:54:43

And soon, this will also

double as a keyboard.

0:54:450:54:47

Even with the S9's better

tech specs, critics say

0:54:470:54:49

that the improvements

are not massive.

0:54:490:54:56

But I do think that the camera

and the sharing functions are sure

0:54:560:54:59

to be eye-catchers.

0:54:590:55:00

And of course, no super

slow-mo shoot is complete

0:55:000:55:02

without lots

and lots of confetti.

0:55:020:55:10

This is possibly one of the more

surprising things on the show floor.

0:55:130:55:18

I am currently in a holoportal.

0:55:180:55:26

The set-up consists of four Kinect

sensors, five laptops doing

0:55:280:55:30

the grunt work,

and once a person has been created

0:55:300:55:33

in holographic form,

0:55:330:55:34

well, they can be seen on this,

the Microsoft HoloLens in real-time.

0:55:340:55:37

And I have been to see a family

who are really putting this set-up

0:55:370:55:41

to good use.

0:55:410:55:42

So Harrison has something called

Duchenne muscular dystrophy,

0:55:420:55:44

which is a fatal genetic

muscle-wasting disease.

0:55:440:55:50

It means every single muscle cell

in his body is deteriorating over

0:55:500:55:53

is deteriorating over time.

0:55:530:55:58

Unfortunately, that means

he loses the ability

0:55:580:56:01

and strength to do a lot of things

that we take for granted -

0:56:010:56:05

simply walking, giving your parents

a hug, things like that,

0:56:050:56:07

they just go in time.

0:56:070:56:10

He has a life expectancy

somewhere between 20 and 25.

0:56:100:56:13

Which is when the heart and lungs -

which are also muscles -

0:56:130:56:17

that is when they give up

and we lose him then.

0:56:170:56:20

Since Harrison came off his feet

at the end of last year,

0:56:200:56:24

being able to create stimulating

and engaging experiences at home

0:56:240:56:26

have become more

important than ever.

0:56:260:56:31

And today, he has a virtual visitor.

0:56:310:56:38

This research prototype

is currently being perfected

0:56:380:56:42

at a facility in Ravensbourne.

0:56:420:56:50

Heirisson, how are you?

OK!

0:56:510:56:56

I see the holograndpa.

0:56:560:56:57

Are you in charge

of cooking tonight?

0:56:570:57:00

Yep.

0:57:000:57:00

Your dad would like

a steak that big!

0:57:000:57:03

He is only allowed one this big.

0:57:030:57:08

We've got next Tuesday -

Pancake Day.

0:57:080:57:10

What would you have this year?

0:57:100:57:11

Definitely maple syrup.

0:57:110:57:16

There are are both

AR and VR versions.

0:57:160:57:23

Eventually, maybe more than one

person could be beamed at a time.

0:57:230:57:30

Eventually, 2-way audio and video

could be possible and more than one

0:57:300:57:34

person could be transported.

0:57:340:57:35

But right now, it is about

getting the basics right.

0:57:350:57:37

While this is not a true hologram,

the headset displays holograndpa

0:57:370:57:40

as a 3-dimensional projection,

as if he was in the room.

0:57:400:57:43

There was when we tested at a bit

of a time lag due to a lack

0:57:430:57:48

of processing power and connection.

0:57:480:57:49

There was, when we tested it,

a bit of a time lag due to a lack

0:57:490:57:53

of processing power and connection.

0:57:530:57:55

Arsenal beat Tottenham.

0:57:550:57:56

Never in a million years!

0:57:560:57:57

Is that going to happen.

0:57:570:57:58

3-1 to Tottenham, and

Harry Kane scores two.

0:57:580:58:00

Yeah!

0:58:000:58:08

Now, after weeks of buildup,

0:58:080:58:13

the Oscars are finally here.

0:58:130:58:15

The 90th Academy Awards

are this weekend.

0:58:150:58:17

Over the past few weeks,

we have been going exclusively

0:58:170:58:19

behind the scenes with

some of the nominees

0:58:190:58:21

in the Best Visual Effects category.

0:58:210:58:23

This week is the fourth

in our series, otherwise known

0:58:230:58:26

as Episode VIII.

0:58:260:58:30

Of course, I am talking

about Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

0:58:300:58:34

Kill it.

0:58:340:58:39

we aim to try to do as much as we

can in camera but the reality is

0:58:390:58:44

there always going to big moments

with visual effects and other film

0:58:440:58:47

like this it is a Star Wars movie,

we ultimately ended up with over

0:58:470:58:51

2000 effect shots in the film.

You

have too much of your father's

0:58:510:58:55

halved in you.

0:58:550:58:59

-- You have too much

of your father's heart in you.

0:58:590:59:02

It took almost a year to get

to the final look of Snoke.

0:59:020:59:05

We started to paint textures

and build the internal controls

0:59:050:59:08

and anatomy of the character.

0:59:080:59:10

And then as the editors,

Rian and Bob, were working together,

0:59:100:59:16

they brought together

the sequences only using Andy's

0:59:160:59:19

they brought together the sequences

only using Andy's reference,

0:59:190:59:24

and he had this incredible,

powerful performance,

0:59:240:59:28

a resonate voice.

0:59:280:59:29

Closer, I said...

0:59:290:59:31

Young fool!

0:59:310:59:32

The bombing run was in the original

script, was exactly as you saw

0:59:320:59:35

it

in the film.

0:59:350:59:41

We did bid how to

execute the bombing run

0:59:410:59:45

With a practical pyrotechnics and

everything.

0:59:450:59:47

And the scheduling and cost

of that was too prohibitive.

0:59:470:59:50

The important thing to me is,

when working with a director

0:59:500:59:53

like Rian, is that we can make our

CG look like any particular style.

0:59:530:59:57

We can make it look like anything.

0:59:570:59:59

Balsa wood model, a CG ship -

we have that control over the way

0:59:591:00:03

we can render things now.

1:00:031:00:09

After a time, Rian became confident

in what we could do.

1:00:091:00:12

Actually, it was a liberation.

1:00:121:00:15

We could achieve anything in the

explosions and pyrotechnics we

1:00:151:00:19

achieved in the bombing run has

pushed us to a new level.

1:00:191:00:26

I think our contribution to film

is getting more and more invisible

1:00:261:00:29

in certain cases.

1:00:291:00:30

But when they are not invisible,

because you know they cannot be

1:00:301:00:33

real, they are getting

more believable.

1:00:331:00:35

Globally, the visual effects

techniques are so advanced

1:00:351:00:37

now that it is now important to good

story and it is important

1:00:371:00:41

that the story has good ideas

and greater challenges that push us

1:00:411:00:44

to create visuals that have

never been seen before.

1:00:441:00:52

That's it for the short

cut of Click this week.

1:00:531:00:56

The long version is up

on iPlayer right now.

1:00:561:00:59

We are on Facebook and Twitter.

1:00:591:01:01

Thank you for watching

and we will see you soon.

1:01:011:01:09

Hello this is Breakfast,

with Tina Daheley and Charlie Stayt.

1:01:301:01:33

Snow, ice and strong winds continue

to cause major travel disruption.

1:01:331:01:38

Weather warnings remain in place

across much of the UK.

1:01:381:01:42

In south-east London,

police were called after people

1:01:421:01:44

stuck on trains started

jumping on to the tracks.

1:01:441:01:47

Volunteers in Devon help transport

staff and patients to hospital.

1:01:471:01:49

And after the big freeze, flooding

hits parts of the south-west.

1:01:491:01:52

Good morning. It is Saturday, March

three. Also this morning, facing up

1:02:121:02:21

to hard facts. The Prime Minister

says nobody will get everything they

1:02:211:02:26

want from Brexit, but says the UK

and EU are close to a deal.

1:02:261:02:32

And as

1:02:321:02:33

Hollywood prepares for the Oscars

this weekend, Heather Graham tells

1:02:331:02:35

with disgraced film

producer, Harvey Weinstein.

1:02:351:02:37

He had a pile of scrips on his desk

and he said, choose one of these

1:02:371:02:42

scripts, you are so talented, you

can pick any of them you want. He

1:02:421:02:48

said he and his wife had an

arrangement, when he was at County

1:02:481:02:52

could have sex with whoever he

wanted.

1:02:521:02:54

In sport England's cricketers

1:02:541:02:56

are fighting back in New Zealand.

1:02:561:02:58

After struggling with the bat,

the bowlers are getting on top

1:02:581:03:01

against the Kiwis in the third

one day international,

1:03:011:03:03

taking four wickets

for the loss of just six runs.

1:03:031:03:06

And Chris has the weather.

Good

morning. We are looking at a cold

1:03:061:03:09

and frosty start. A big risk of ice

around. Take it easy out on the

1:03:091:03:13

roads. There will be more snow

coming from northern areas today but

1:03:131:03:17

it will not be as heavy as recently.

It will turn less cold from the

1:03:171:03:21

south-west through the weekend. I

will have more details later.

1:03:211:03:24

Good morning.

1:03:241:03:24

First, our main story.

1:03:241:03:25

Freezing weather conditions

are continuing to cause major travel

1:03:251:03:28

disruption across the UK.

1:03:281:03:29

Weather warnings of snow and ice

remain in place in large parts

1:03:291:03:32

of the country, although conditions

are expected to ease

1:03:321:03:34

throughout the day.

1:03:341:03:36

2000 homes are without power and

motorists and rail passengers face

1:03:361:03:40

further disruption.

1:03:401:03:42

Last night, police were called

to Lewisham in south-east London

1:03:421:03:45

as passengers, who'd

been stuck on a train,

1:03:451:03:47

opened the doors and

climbed onto the tracks.

1:03:471:03:49

Simon Clemison reports.

1:03:491:03:57

Let's find out what the situation is

like out of air this morning.

1:03:591:04:04

Our reporter, Alison

Freeman, is in Alnwick.

1:04:041:04:08

We are hearing conditions are not as

bad as they have been, but what are

1:04:081:04:12

conditions like where you are?

Well,

where I am is just above the A1.

1:04:121:04:18

This is the main route from England

to Scotland from the north-east. You

1:04:181:04:23

would expect there to be more

traffic than this. It is still

1:04:231:04:26

closed in sections. The problem

authorities are facing is that no

1:04:261:04:31

matter how quickly they clear it,

gusts of wins are blowing snow

1:04:311:04:35

drifts back onto the road quite

quickly. -- gusts of wind. In some

1:04:351:04:41

places it is down to one lane. We

were watching snow blowers yesterday

1:04:411:04:47

afternoon trying to get the snow

away, and then it's blowing back on.

1:04:471:04:52

So the police are running convoys,

they are escorting people through

1:04:521:04:55

those patches. Some motorists are

trying to find their own way around,

1:04:551:05:00

which is causing some difficult

situations. Mt Rescue have been

1:05:001:05:03

listed to help people who have been

stuck back to safety, and also

1:05:031:05:10

getting people to hospital in rural

communities. Concerns are now

1:05:101:05:15

turning to black ice, with less

snowfall, although it has just

1:05:151:05:18

started snowing again. There are

also Flood warnings in place in the

1:05:181:05:22

north-east and the south-east, and

also the south-west in parts of

1:05:221:05:27

Devon and Cornwall in Dorset. There

has been some good news today, which

1:05:271:05:31

is that the M62 has reopened across

the Pennines. The message from the

1:05:311:05:37

emergency services is still that you

should not travel unless it is

1:05:371:05:41

absolutely necessary.

Now let's find

out what the situation is in

1:05:411:05:46

Cardiff. Thomas Morgan joins us.

Good morning. What is the picture in

1:05:461:05:51

Wales this morning?

Well, it was

supposed to start raining this

1:05:511:05:56

morning but I can tell you from

walking in this morning that it was

1:05:561:06:00

actually snowing again here in the

centre of Cardiff. This road behind

1:06:001:06:05

me, probably one of the better

looking roads that I passed on the

1:06:051:06:08

way here. The majority of the side

streets and the central suburban

1:06:081:06:12

areas are still covered in snow, not

to be passable by most cars.

1:06:121:06:17

Transport was badly affected

yesterday across the majority of

1:06:171:06:19

Wales. Train services suspended,

Cardiff airport shut down through

1:06:191:06:23

the whole day. There was a suspicion

it might open at one stage, but it

1:06:231:06:28

remained shut. Roads, and very big

issue for the majority of. The

1:06:281:06:32

emergency services were struggling,

police told the public not to call

1:06:321:06:39

unless it was a genuine emergency.

The ambulance service put out a plea

1:06:391:06:43

to staff and volunteers, anybody

with a 4-wheel-drive to help them

1:06:431:06:48

bring work to help people who needed

care the most. A yellow warning

1:06:481:06:52

remains in place in Wales for snow

and ice until midday today.

Thomas,

1:06:521:06:56

thank you for that report in

Cardiff. We will have a full weather

1:06:561:07:02

picture for you with Chris in the

next few minutes.

1:07:021:07:06

The Prime Minister's

speech on Britain leaving

1:07:061:07:08

the European Union has been given

a cautious welcome by both the Leave

1:07:081:07:12

and Remain wings of her own party.

1:07:121:07:14

Theresa May set out her vision

of the UK's future trading

1:07:141:07:16

relationship with the EU and said

all sides would have

1:07:161:07:19

to make concessions.

1:07:191:07:20

Our political correspondent Tom

Barton is in the London newsroom.

1:07:201:07:23

Tom, what was Mrs May trying

to achieve in her speech,

1:07:231:07:26

and did she succeed?

1:07:261:07:27

What has been the reaction to this

speech?

Yes, well, from the Prime

1:07:271:07:31

Minister's perspective, yesterday's

speech was a big moment. The third

1:07:311:07:35

in three major speech as she has

used to set out her Brexit vision.

1:07:351:07:39

She had three main audiences

yesterday. First of all, ask, the

1:07:391:07:42

public. Secondly, those EU leaders

she is negotiating with. Third, her

1:07:421:07:48

own MPs, who are divided about what

Brexit should look like. Her message

1:07:481:07:52

was that she wants a clean break

from those big EU institutions, the

1:07:521:07:56

single market and the customs union.

But beyond that, she would like is

1:07:561:08:03

closer relationship as possible.

There is a big question over whether

1:08:031:08:06

EU leaders will be on board with

that idea. At this stage, though, it

1:08:061:08:11

appears to have been a success with

her MPs, receiving a positive if

1:08:111:08:16

cautious welcome from both the most

pro- Remain and pro- Leave MPs.

Tom,

1:08:161:08:24

thank you. We will have moron Brexit

and that speech and reaction and

1:08:241:08:29

analysis later on. -- more on that.

1:08:291:08:36

Police are investigating an

explosion in Leicester which killed

1:08:361:08:39

five people. Two men are being held

on conspiracy to cause an explosion.

1:08:391:08:43

Three other men, also in their 30s,

were arrested on suspicion of

1:08:431:08:47

manslaughter on Wednesday and

continue to be questioned by

1:08:471:08:49

detectives. The body which sets the

rules for World Cup all is expected

1:08:491:08:54

to approve the use of video replay

technology throughout the sport when

1:08:541:08:57

it meets in Zurich today. The system

has been used on a trial basis in

1:08:571:09:01

several countries, including some

matches in England. There are

1:09:011:09:05

concerns that it disrupts the flow

of the game, while confusing

1:09:051:09:08

officials. People who are obese or

smoke should not you refused or

1:09:081:09:14

delayed from having surgery by local

health authorities. It is according

1:09:141:09:17

to the academy of medical colleges.

The body, which represents 24

1:09:171:09:23

medical colleges and health

facilities, says that rationing

1:09:231:09:26

surgery based on patients'

lifestyles would widen inequalities

1:09:261:09:28

in access to healthcare. Four days

of snow might have walked the UK

1:09:281:09:34

grinding to a halt, but on many

farms it is business as usual. --

1:09:341:09:39

brought. This farm in Lancashire has

an interesting way to help a newborn

1:09:391:09:44

lamb survive the beast from the

east. They've brought him inside and

1:09:441:09:49

put in the Aga. We advise you not to

try this at home. According to the

1:09:491:09:54

farmer, he pops him inside the ten

minutes to warm them up. There he

1:09:541:09:58

is. I'm not sure about that. I

mean...

It looks fine.

He looks

1:09:581:10:04

happy.

We are picking up some of the

story is related to the weather now.

1:10:041:10:13

-- stories.

1:10:131:10:15

Getting deliveries from A to B can

be a headache even when the weather

1:10:151:10:19

is good, so the snow and ice

of the past week have caused

1:10:191:10:22

lots of problems for

logistics companies.

1:10:221:10:24

Supermarkets have been particularly

affected with drivers grounded

1:10:241:10:26

and shoppers stocking up.

1:10:261:10:27

Bob in Clackmannanshire sent us this

shot of empty shelves

1:10:271:10:30

in his local shop.

1:10:301:10:31

This was the scene in Penistone

when Peter went to get supplies.

1:10:311:10:34

Libby sent us this image

of the empty aisles in Glasgow.

1:10:341:10:37

Christine noticed this empty shelf -

however she hopes it was

1:10:371:10:40

because people were buying bird food

for animals in the cold weather.

1:10:401:10:43

With us on the the sofa

now is Julian Richards,

1:10:431:10:49

who runs a delivery and warehouse

firm, while in London we are joined

1:10:491:10:53

by Chris Yardley from

the Freight Transport Association.

1:10:531:11:01

What is the picture you have seen

emerging over the past few days?

The

1:11:031:11:08

roads have been chaos, as you have

seen. What we do as an industry, we

1:11:081:11:13

deliver everything to everybody

every day. So the knock-on effect of

1:11:131:11:17

that is what we have just seen with

the empty shelves, because goods are

1:11:171:11:21

not getting through to supermarkets.

With certain conditions, the

1:11:211:11:25

extremes of which we have seen

recently, there isn't much you can

1:11:251:11:28

do about that?

No. Safety is our

main concern, for our own people and

1:11:281:11:33

other people on the roads. So we

checked the weather forecasts days

1:11:331:11:38

in advance, especially at this time

of year, and we make contingency

1:11:381:11:41

plans not to send certain trucks to

certain areas.

Chris, thanks for

1:11:411:11:46

joining us. How much of an impact as

the weather had Newcomb getting

1:11:461:11:50

deliveries around the UK?

It has

certainly had a major impact on

1:11:501:11:53

supply chains across the United

Kingdom. It might be that the

1:11:531:11:57

effects might be seen in a few days'

time, with trains and planes, if the

1:11:571:12:03

vehicles are not moving around they

are not going to be in the right

1:12:031:12:07

place to make their deliveries in

the next couple of days, so

1:12:071:12:10

actually, the impact might you seen

over the next few days. The

1:12:101:12:14

logistics sector is quite robust. It

will be up and running in supplying

1:12:141:12:17

the shops and as this is of the

country as soon as possible.

So even

1:12:171:12:21

though the weather is improve and we

might still see those empty shelves

1:12:211:12:25

in the next few days? Because of the

knock-on effect?

Yeah. For example,

1:12:251:12:31

if you have a delivery of fresh

produce which has not come through,

1:12:311:12:34

it might have spoiled. Brad, for

example, or bakery products. That

1:12:341:12:39

might have to then be replaced, and

the vehicles go back to the

1:12:391:12:43

production plant and are restocked.

So there might be a few days of

1:12:431:12:47

empty shelves. But hopefully it will

be back up and running as quick as

1:12:471:12:51

possible.

We were speaking to

somebody in Calgary in Canada

1:12:511:12:55

earlier, and they are experiencing

really cold weather but everything

1:12:551:12:57

carries on as normal. Is there

anything that could have and done to

1:12:571:13:01

prevent this? We did know the cold

weather was on its way.

Yes. FTA

1:13:011:13:08

works with central government and

the devolved administrations around

1:13:081:13:11

the country on the weather

information service. We were putting

1:13:111:13:16

out alerts to our members as soon as

we receive them. It must be

1:13:161:13:21

remembered, this is a rare event in

the country. This is the first time

1:13:211:13:25

that a red alert has been issued in

the central belt of Scotland, on the

1:13:251:13:29

transport route there. This is

something we will have to look out

1:13:291:13:32

after the event is over and see if

the messages can be finessed and

1:13:321:13:36

better improved for the next time it

happens.

To what extent, Julian, to

1:13:361:13:41

you think that shoppers are

responsible? Because, I mean, I see

1:13:411:13:46

a slight smile on your face there,

is it a fact that people are going

1:13:461:13:50

to the shops and buying

unnecessarily large quantities of

1:13:501:13:53

things, resulting in the additional?

If they had just carried on as

1:13:531:13:57

normal, you think that on the whole,

the shops would still have products?

1:13:571:14:01

I don't think we are quite at that

stage yet where the public are

1:14:011:14:05

panicking around shopping. I think

it continues longer than two or

1:14:051:14:08

three days that would happen, but

the empty shelves are just a result

1:14:081:14:12

of the fact that goods are not

getting through. We have warehouses

1:14:121:14:15

act up the products we are trying to

deliver, which we cannot get

1:14:151:14:18

through. -- backed up with product.

You knew this was coming. We all

1:14:181:14:24

knew this was coming. You have to

get the right thing in the right

1:14:241:14:28

place at the right time. That is

your job. Otherwise it is easy. You

1:14:281:14:34

just send the trucks out and you

know when they are going to get

1:14:341:14:37

there. The job comes tricky, and

this is why you and your money, is

1:14:371:14:41

when it is difficult. So wide

couldn't you arrange it better? --

1:14:411:14:44

why.

It is all down to planning.

Roads in the UK are bad enough

1:14:441:14:49

without the weather. So we keep and

I am the weather, and the warnings

1:14:491:14:53

that the government gives out about

essential travel only, to many

1:14:531:14:56

people ignore that. That needs to be

adhered to more greatly. Commercial

1:14:561:15:02

vehicles, yes, emergency services,

yes, but not people travelling to

1:15:021:15:06

for the fun of it.

I am playing

Devil's advocate here, a moment ago

1:15:061:15:10

we were seeing you should have got

things they're more timely, but some

1:15:101:15:13

people also say some of these big

trucks are back on the road to

1:15:131:15:17

quickly, and often we see these big

traffic jams caused by a truck, and

1:15:171:15:21

everybody is saying, why was a truck

on the road in the snow?

Well, that

1:15:211:15:25

is always the case. In regular

traffic jams people always blame the

1:15:251:15:30

lorry. But the lorry is there

because the customers are demanding

1:15:301:15:37

products and services when they want

them. Our members, the freight

1:15:371:15:43

operators, are just serving customer

demand. It must be said, a

1:15:431:15:47

commercial driver is a professional

person. They do do a lot of training

1:15:471:15:53

for events like this in the bad

weather, and I think that was just

1:15:531:15:57

shown by the Scottish bus driver

whose training kicked in and saved

1:15:571:16:03

the bus from having a pity

potentially dangerous collision with

1:16:031:16:07

that car that we all saw on the TV

screens over the last few days.

1:16:071:16:11

Thank you very much.

1:16:111:16:16

That was a remarkable visual

footage, wasn't it? If you have not

1:16:211:16:25

seen it, the bus driver swerved to

avoid cars. Scary!

1:16:251:16:29

You've been getting in touch

in your droves to nominate the Snow

1:16:291:16:32

Heroes who have gone the extra mile

to help their local community over

1:16:321:16:36

the past few days.

1:16:361:16:37

Charis in Colne was due

to have her father's funeral

1:16:371:16:40

yesterday

but the heavy snow meant

1:16:401:16:41

it was difficult to get access

for the hearse.

1:16:411:16:44

After appealing for some help,

the fire service carried her dad's

1:16:441:16:47

coffin from the house up

to where the hearse was waiting.

1:16:471:16:50

She wants to say thank you so much

to the Colne Fire and Rescue Service

1:16:501:16:54

and all you beautiful

people who helped.

1:16:541:16:57

Alison got in touch with us

to say that the day

1:16:571:17:00

after her father's funeral,

Charis was out clearing snow

1:17:001:17:03

at the local care home.

1:17:031:17:04

Alison says she is a snow

angel in her own right.

1:17:041:17:10

Amazing little stories in amongst

these of people doing things that

1:17:101:17:15

they may not otherwise have done.

They could be small things, going

1:17:151:17:18

out to help people stranded in their

cars, ringing hot drinks, and if you

1:17:181:17:24

have stories of snow heroes where

you are, share them with us. But the

1:17:241:17:28

look at the big teacher. --A look at

the big picture.

1:17:281:17:34

Here's Chris with a look

at this morning's weather.

1:17:341:17:35

Here's Chris with a look

at this morning's weather.

1:17:351:17:37

The state of play this morning, 55

centimetres of snow across southern

1:17:371:17:44

Wales, St Athan near Cardiff, and no

wonder commuters are struggling, it

1:17:441:17:48

has been a severe spell of weather

but it is easing off somewhat, a

1:17:481:17:52

little more snow to come across

northern areas, a couple more

1:17:521:17:55

centimetres, but nothing like we

have seen. It will start to turn

1:17:551:17:59

less cold from the south as the

weekend goes by. Still have cold

1:17:591:18:03

easterly wind across the country but

slightly less cold air comes up from

1:18:031:18:07

the south and will pushing the

southern counties as we go on

1:18:071:18:10

through the course of the day.

Looking at the satellite, an area of

1:18:101:18:15

cloud works across northern England,

bringing snow and across Wales as

1:18:151:18:18

well so fresh snowfall here are a

few more centimetres, and something

1:18:181:18:23

called freezing rain affecting

eastern Scotland and parts of

1:18:231:18:26

eastern England, this is really

nasty stuff, it is liquid rain that

1:18:261:18:30

has a temperature below zero and it

turns the ice as soon as it hit the

1:18:301:18:35

road, and you cannot greet against

its as you can imagine, some roads

1:18:351:18:38

will be to the ice rinks, dangerous

conditions out and about. -- grit.

1:18:381:18:43

The further risk of snow across

northern England in the eastern

1:18:431:18:47

parts of northern Ireland, Antrim

and Down thing fresh snow, and

1:18:471:18:50

eastern Scotland as well, further

south showers pushing the south-west

1:18:501:18:54

England and southern Wales, some

snow for the moors and the Brecon

1:18:541:19:01

Beacons, rain and sleet mixed in the

showers. Overnight, in many

1:19:011:19:06

respects, a repeat performance,

temperatures dropping pretty rapidly

1:19:061:19:08

so we will be widespread frost, the

risk of icy stretches returning,

1:19:081:19:13

showers pushing off across England

and Wales, heightening the ice risks

1:19:131:19:16

of these areas. Sunday, watch out,

is the very start. Still, cloud

1:19:161:19:23

around but probably a few more

breaks in the cloud across parts of

1:19:231:19:26

the south but then we will see

further showers coming in and they

1:19:261:19:30

will look to be heavy through Sunday

afternoon across southern England

1:19:301:19:33

moving into Wales and the Midlands

and showers across eastern Scotland,

1:19:331:19:36

north-east England, still wintry, a

mixture of rain and sleet and snow

1:19:361:19:40

down with some further snow in the

hills here to take through Sunday,

1:19:401:19:43

still cold across northern areas but

the temperatures come up into the

1:19:431:19:46

south eight or nine degrees for

Cardiff and London. The trend to

1:19:461:19:50

less cold weather will continue into

next week. The thought is setting in

1:19:501:19:55

place but it will be still pretty

cold across northern parts, there is

1:19:551:19:59

an ongoing part of some snow --

threat. -- thaw. Further south,

1:19:591:20:04

generally coming up from off the Bay

of Biscay, the air will bring the

1:20:041:20:09

temperatures are but some episodes

of rain will be mixed in. Cold

1:20:091:20:12

weather to start the day, the risk

of snow and ice a round of the

1:20:121:20:17

weather will ease somewhat over the

next

1:20:171:20:20

weather will ease somewhat over the

next few days. After you. Thank you,

1:20:201:20:20

Chris. 720 now, let's move away from

the weather and talk about politics.

1:20:201:20:27

This week, two former porime

ministers and an aspiring

1:20:271:20:29

one made speeches on

the future of Brexit.

1:20:291:20:31

Yesterday, the sitting PM

Theresa May gave her views

1:20:311:20:34

on the subject, making

concessions to all sides,

1:20:341:20:36

but did her speech shed any more

light on what Brexit actually means?

1:20:361:20:40

Let's get some analysis

from political journalists

1:20:401:20:41

and sparring partners

Andrew Pierce and Kevin Maguire,

1:20:411:20:44

who join us now from Westminster.

1:20:441:20:48

They give both were joining us. I

mean, what is your reaction to this

1:20:481:20:54

speech? Are we actually any more

clear on what Theresa May is

1:20:541:20:59

planning? What Brexit means? Did we

learn anything new?

I think she

1:20:591:21:03

wants a soft Brexit but she is

trying to make the best of a bad job

1:21:031:21:08

at the best of a bad job is still a

bad job. She knows Britain will be

1:21:081:21:12

worse off.

No she doesn't.

It will

be lose, lose, as the Europeans have

1:21:121:21:18

said from the beginning, she has

admitted it is complex, the

1:21:181:21:21

International trade Secretary Liam

Fox is to pretend it was the

1:21:211:21:25

simplest negotiations in the history

of the world, that isn't true, and I

1:21:251:21:29

think you can see why public opinion

is turning a bit and people are

1:21:291:21:33

getting concerned.

Nira.

It is not

what people are promised. We will be

1:21:331:21:38

poorer and weaker as a country but

we are partly out and we will only

1:21:381:21:43

be partly out because she wants to

keep a toe in.

Kevin Maguire

1:21:431:21:46

couldn't have made that ran to the

beginning of this Brexit process

1:21:461:21:50

because he is of the view and will

never change his mind, leaving is a

1:21:501:21:54

disaster, I think it is the most

reasonable beach, it was dull and

1:21:541:21:58

boring but then again, she is --

speech. It was detailed, strong on

1:21:581:22:03

detail, the response from the Labor

leader that there was no detail was

1:22:031:22:07

remarkable considering one week ago

he told us we were going to be in a

1:22:071:22:11

customs union but hasn't got a clue

which one -- Labor.

Andrew. OK. If

1:22:111:22:16

you are telling me there was lots of

detail in it, what is the detail?

1:22:161:22:21

What have we learned that is new?

Well, she said quite clearly to the

1:22:211:22:28

Brexiteers you cannot have

everything you want and likewise to

1:22:281:22:30

the Remainers, we will be signed up

to some agencies such as the

1:22:301:22:36

European medicines agency and that

we will have to pay for that, and

1:22:361:22:40

she said, she admitted, that by not

being in the single market there may

1:22:401:22:44

be some impact. I thought it was so

much detail it was almost

1:22:441:22:48

overwhelming.

It was the detail of a

blank sheet of paper!

It was a

1:22:481:22:54

technical speech, lots of technical

detail in there.

Exactly. But who is

1:22:541:22:59

it for? The parliamentary party

because she needs to unite them

1:22:591:23:04

because the Labour Party is being

political, they are the official

1:23:041:23:08

opposition, it wasn't aimed at the

likes of us and also it was aimed at

1:23:081:23:12

the EU negotiating team. She is

going Michelle Michel Barnier, they

1:23:121:23:15

have rather given up on him and his

ridiculous demands over what he can

1:23:151:23:19

say about that, -- giving up on.

Even the Labor site at the positive

1:23:191:23:29

things, as if Jason across as did

Jacobs Rees-Mogg.

What about the

1:23:291:23:35

response from Labor because they

haven't got that at the giver in

1:23:351:23:39

terms of deciding they are committed

to the consensus on keeping the UK

1:23:391:23:43

in the customs union which is

exactly what Theresa May said we are

1:23:431:23:46

not going to do.

She was to be out

of the customs union but she wants

1:23:461:23:51

most of the benefits of being in the

union which is why she is very much

1:23:511:23:55

a contortionist at the moment. Labor

has been on a torturous journey of

1:23:551:23:58

its own which is why it wasn't until

Monday at Jeremy Corbyn committed

1:23:581:24:02

himself to remain in the customs

union to avoid turning Kent into a

1:24:021:24:06

lorry park when exporters have to

fill in lots of forms and get paid

1:24:061:24:11

in taxes which would jeopardise jobs

and austerity.

Rubbish.

The problem

1:24:111:24:17

with Theresa May's position, she is

the women negotiating, Dick and

1:24:171:24:21

criticise Labor have not being more

clear earlier and would be justified

1:24:211:24:26

but she is doing the negotiating and

if she doesn't know what she is

1:24:261:24:30

asking for precisely, how are you

going to get it? The fact that Tory

1:24:301:24:34

boy he has admitted that speech was

really at her Cabinet and party, it

1:24:341:24:39

tells you everything about the

internal Conservative civil war

1:24:391:24:42

which is actually really influencing

where Theresa May it is rather than

1:24:421:24:48

representing Britain. It doesn't

matter whether you are the most

1:24:481:24:51

ardent leave or a Europhile, 21

months after the referendum result,

1:24:511:24:56

the year after this process was

triggered, the clock is ticking, you

1:24:561:25:00

have to actually get the details in

three or four months here because

1:25:001:25:05

we're going to have Brexit in this

time next year, March next year, she

1:25:051:25:08

still does not have the deal.

Kevin,

Andrew, it is Charlie he. Good

1:25:081:25:13

morning.

He needs to come down a

bit.

Lovely to see you in the cold,

1:25:131:25:21

enjoying your banter, may I ask you

one thing? You are both died in the

1:25:211:25:26

wool newspapermen. And of the

newspapers have Theresa May on the

1:25:261:25:30

front page? Is one of the problem

here, this may have been a very

1:25:301:25:35

important speech but to be honest, I

mean, how much is anyone listening

1:25:351:25:39

any more?

I think, I think, this

speech wasn't aimed at us, it was

1:25:391:25:44

aimed at the parliamentary party and

the EU and the fact is think most

1:25:441:25:48

people just want the government to

get on with it, they are bored with

1:25:481:25:52

that, Brexit is becoming boring,

they know we are leaving, why can't

1:25:521:25:57

we go, and that is where we are. It

is hardly surprising although it is

1:25:571:26:01

the biggest issue facing the country

for a decade, and as I say she does

1:26:011:26:05

not really do dynamic, exciting

speeches but what she did was worthy

1:26:051:26:08

and detailed and good on her.

As

people are talking about the weather

1:26:081:26:11

because it is having an immediate

impact on their lives, Brexit is

1:26:111:26:15

hugely important, a lot of people

again, whichever side of the

1:26:151:26:19

argument you are on, they wanted to

get on with it but the great thing

1:26:191:26:22

about the weather, it has been bad,

but it stopped Boris Johnson getting

1:26:221:26:26

back into Britain and we should

cheer about.

Thank you both for not

1:26:261:26:29

being boring. They give are joining

us. The time now is 726.

1:26:291:26:36

If you watch Breakfast regularly,

you'll know we been looking

1:26:361:26:39

at the subject of special

educational needs and disabilities

1:26:391:26:41

and how it affects individuals

and their families.

1:26:411:26:43

Today, we're focussing on children

in England who are travelling,

1:26:431:26:46

on average, three times further

than those in mainstream

1:26:461:26:49

institutions - in some cases making

40-mile round trips.

1:26:491:26:51

The government says it is committed

to cutting distances to "good"

1:26:511:26:54

schools, but the Education Policy

Institute says it has

1:26:541:26:57

neglected special schools.

1:26:571:26:57

Tim Muffett reports.

1:26:571:27:05

6:30 AM and Nicky is getting ready

for the school run.

Oscar was

1:27:051:27:11

diagnosed with autism spectrum

disorder aged seven. It is now

1:27:111:27:15

suffering from suspect did

post-traumatic stress related to

1:27:151:27:19

what happened in his mainstream

school.

The Oscar, who is 11, now

1:27:191:27:24

has a daily school journey of 47

miles. Each way.

On a good run, one

1:27:241:27:31

hour 20. On a bad run, we have taken

three hours. Britain is our nearest

1:27:311:27:37

most appropriate school for our

child. Families in our situation

1:27:371:27:42

don't get a choice.

It is 7.30 in

the morning and George is about to

1:27:421:27:47

get in his taxi to go the 11 miles

to school.

1.5 mile journey to

1:27:471:27:52

school.

We asked other families in

similar situations to share their

1:27:521:27:58

school run with us.

The journey can

sometimes take from 1-hour to two

1:27:581:28:02

hours.

The school journeys of

children with special educational

1:28:021:28:08

needs and disabilities have been

analysed for a new report by the

1:28:081:28:12

education policy Institute. Children

in special schools travel on average

1:28:121:28:17

almost three times further than

pupils in mainstream education. In

1:28:171:28:22

rural areas, one in 10 special needs

pupils face a daily round-trip of

1:28:221:28:27

more than 40 miles.

Some pupils, we

may find that the distances they are

1:28:271:28:33

now having to travel are

insurmountable. There is 110,000

1:28:331:28:38

pupils nationally attending special

schools that we have debates about

1:28:381:28:41

free schools, about faith schools,

around Crummer schools, we have

1:28:411:28:45

ignored the 1000 special schools

that are in this country and

1:28:451:28:48

ensuring that people that need to

access them are able to.

By law,

1:28:481:28:53

councils in England must pay for

transport for children who cannot

1:28:531:28:56

walk to school because of their

special educational need or

1:28:561:28:59

disability. That may need a milage

on balance, a taxi or a minibus.

1:28:591:29:05

Elsewhere in the UK local

authorities have more discretion.

1:29:051:29:08

And did they tell you why it was

refused?

But the disability charity

1:29:081:29:13

contacts as it has seen a huge

increase in families seeking help.

A

1:29:131:29:16

lot of calls to the contact helpline

are actually about local authorities

1:29:161:29:22

not following the law properly.

Wrongly refusing free school

1:29:221:29:28

transport for disabled children.

They have not been considering their

1:29:281:29:30

child's disability or special needs.

The Department of education told us

1:29:301:29:36

that through government funding,

local authorities are spending £600

1:29:361:29:41

million on transport for children

with special educational needs. Over

1:29:411:29:45

the next three years, an extra £250

million will be available for school

1:29:451:29:49

places and facilities, secretary

guidance for local authorities is

1:29:491:29:52

still also under control up for

review. Many say there journeys are

1:29:521:29:58

so long there is no point coming

home before pickup time.

To what I

1:29:581:30:01

do is hang around Pembridge into a

pickup time at half past three.

The

1:30:011:30:09

local government Association says

councils work hard to provide

1:30:091:30:12

suitable school transport for

children with special needs. It says

1:30:121:30:15

current government funding does not

reflect the demands being placed on

1:30:151:30:20

councils.

1:30:201:30:24

Stay with us, headlines coming up.

1:30:241:30:32

Hello, this is Breakfast

with Tina Daheley and Charlie Stayt.

1:30:581:31:01

Here's a summary of today's main

stories from BBC News.

1:31:011:31:04

Weather warnings for snow and ice

remain in place across much

1:31:041:31:07

of the UK - that's despite

temperatures being expected

1:31:071:31:11

to gradually rise in many areas.

1:31:111:31:16

The Environment Agency currently has

15 flood warnings in place,

1:31:161:31:19

mainly in the south-west

and north-east England.

1:31:191:31:21

2,000 homes are without power

and motorists and rail passengers

1:31:211:31:24

face further disruption

on the road and rail network.

1:31:241:31:29

Last night, police were called

to Lewisham in south-east London

1:31:291:31:31

as passengers, who'd

been stuck on a train,

1:31:311:31:34

opened the doors and

climbed onto the tracks.

1:31:341:31:36

Earlier on Breakfast

we spoke to Brian Tancock,

1:31:361:31:38

who was on the train behind,

he told us the impact it had

1:31:381:31:41

on his journey.

1:31:411:31:46

They felt they were so close to

their destination, therefore it was

1:31:471:31:50

less of an issue then walking 100

metres to the station, assuming the

1:31:501:31:54

power was turned off. People in my

train had a long wait. They still

1:31:541:31:59

had almost an hour of their journeys

to do. They had no chance of getting

1:31:591:32:03

home if their train didn't run. If

they had a bit more resilience on

1:32:031:32:09

that train... Well, I can get why

people did what they did. Maybe they

1:32:091:32:13

could have waited longer. But there

was a lot of pent-up frustration.

1:32:131:32:17

They were probably on a much easier

trend in mind, everybody had a seat

1:32:171:32:22

on my train. -- much busier train

then mine.

1:32:221:32:26

Police in Dublin have made several

arrests after a supermarket

1:32:261:32:29

was reportedly looted during a heavy

snowstorm last night.

1:32:291:32:31

Footage on social media showed

the Lidl store being attacked

1:32:311:32:34

with a mechanical digger.

1:32:341:32:35

The German chain described it

as a "very serious incident"

1:32:351:32:38

which took place when the store

was closed and no staff

1:32:381:32:41

were present.

1:32:411:32:44

The Prime Minister's

speech on Britain leaving

1:32:441:32:46

the European Union has been given

a cautious welcome by both the Leave

1:32:461:32:50

and Remain wings of her party.

1:32:501:32:51

Theresa May set out her vision

of the UK's future trading

1:32:511:32:54

relationship with the EU and called

for concesssions on all sides.

1:32:541:32:57

She said she was confident remaining

differences over a draft legal

1:32:571:33:00

agreement could be resolved,

allowing trade talks to get under

1:33:001:33:03

way.

1:33:031:33:11

Two men have been arrested by police

investigating an explosion in

1:33:111:33:14

Leicester that killed five people.

The men, both in their 30s and from

1:33:141:33:18

East Anglia, are being held on

suspicion of conspiracy to cause an

1:33:181:33:22

explosion. Three other men, also in

their 30s, were arrested on

1:33:221:33:25

suspicion of manslaughter on

Wednesday and continue to be

1:33:251:33:27

questioned by detectives.

1:33:271:33:30

Time for sport. What do you have for

us?

Well, what an end to the test

1:33:301:33:40

between England and New Zealand.

Nobody really gave England a chance,

1:33:401:33:44

they only hit 234 in their innings.

It has all changed around thanks to

1:33:441:33:49

some spin. Let me tell you the

story.

1:33:491:33:52

So against the odds,

England's spinners are looking

1:33:521:33:54

like potential matchwinners

in the third one day international

1:33:541:33:57

against New Zealand.

1:33:571:33:58

The Kiwis made a steady start,

as they chase that target

1:33:581:34:01

of 235 to win.

1:34:011:34:02

But Ben Stokes took a spectacular

catch, off Adil Rashid,

1:34:021:34:05

to start a run of wickets.

1:34:051:34:11

Moeen Ali took two wickets in three

balls, New Zealand lost four

1:34:111:34:14

for just six runs.

1:34:141:34:15

Kane Williamson has made a half

century but the hosts are 118

1:34:151:34:19

for six off 29 overs.

1:34:191:34:22

Relocating to the south of France,

away from her family and sausage

1:34:221:34:25

dogs, has paid off for

Katarina Johnson-Thompson,

1:34:251:34:27

who has won her first world title

in the pentathlon at the world

1:34:271:34:30

indoor championships in Birmingham.

1:34:301:34:35

She sealed the victory with another

win, in the 800 metres,

1:34:351:34:38

to end what she said

had been a wobbly -

1:34:381:34:41

but in the end, a dominant day.

1:34:411:34:42

She set a new personal best

in the shotput and came out on top

1:34:421:34:46

in the long jump.

1:34:461:34:47

It comes after she suffered

disappointment at the world outdoor

1:34:471:34:50

championships in London last summer.

1:34:501:34:55

I cannot believe it. I have dreamt

of this for so long. To come here

1:34:551:35:03

and do it, I dreamt of it last

summer. All my family are here

1:35:031:35:07

today. I went through a hard year

last year towards the end of the

1:35:071:35:12

year. I just wanted my family to see

me actually achieve something, so

1:35:121:35:16

I'm so happy they were here to

witness it. It is just something

1:35:161:35:20

that I still can't believe, really.

Such a brilliant achievement, at

1:35:201:35:25

last. Apparently I have gone posh,

in my pronunciation of shotput.

It

1:35:251:35:33

is shotput.

Is it shotput? Anyway,

we should recognise Katarina

1:35:331:35:40

Johnson-Thompson. She has waited so

long, she has struggled with injury.

1:35:401:35:46

She has always been in the shadow of

Jessica Ennis-Hill.

What was that

1:35:461:35:52

event?

That was the high jump.

1:35:521:35:59

It's the 5-event pentathlon,

not 7-event heptathlon.

1:35:591:36:02

And in a few weeks time she will be

going for a Commonwealth games title

1:36:021:36:07

for the first time, on the Gold

Coast in Australia. She is

1:36:071:36:10

understandably chuffed. Relocating

to France seems to have made the

1:36:101:36:14

difference for her.

1:36:141:36:15

Well, that's Britain's second medal

of these championships,

1:36:151:36:18

and there could be

more to come today.

1:36:181:36:21

Laura Muir is looking to follow up

the bronze she won in the 3,000

1:36:211:36:24

metres with another medal

in the 1,500 metres today.

1:36:241:36:27

She qualified for the final

in second place in her heat,

1:36:271:36:30

behind Friday's gold

medallist, Genzebe Dibaba.

1:36:301:36:31

Great Britain added

another medal on day three

1:36:311:36:34

of the World Track Championship

in Apeldoorn in the Netherlands.

1:36:341:36:36

Mark Stewart won bronze in the men's

points race which is over 160 laps.

1:36:361:36:40

Australia's Cameron Meyer

retained his title with home rider

1:36:401:36:43

Jan Willem van Schip taking silver.

1:36:431:36:46

Britain now have four medals:

one gold, two silvers

1:36:461:36:48

and Stewart's bronze.

1:36:481:36:55

It was a difficult evening

for Britain's Elinor Barker

1:36:551:36:57

as she was caught up in this crash

during the elimination race

1:36:571:37:01

in the women's omnium.

1:37:011:37:08

She went into the fourth and final

event, the points race,

1:37:081:37:11

in the bronze medal position,

but couldn't manage to hold

1:37:111:37:14

on to it, finishing sixth overall

just a nine points off a medal.

1:37:141:37:17

Kirsten Vild took gold

for the Netherlands.

1:37:171:37:19

Middlesbrough are into

the Championship play-off places,

1:37:191:37:21

after beating Leeds 3-0.

1:37:211:37:22

It was a hat-trick from striker

Patrick Bamford that pushed Boro

1:37:221:37:25

into the top 6.

1:37:251:37:26

This game surviving the weather,

but three Championship games today

1:37:261:37:29

have already been postponed -

so do check before setting off.

1:37:291:37:32

Despite the weather all seven

of today's Premier League fixtures

1:37:321:37:36

are expected to go ahead.

1:37:361:37:39

The match of the day sees Liverpool

welcome Newcastle United manager

1:37:391:37:42

Rafael Benitez back to Anfield.

1:37:421:37:43

The Spaniard is unbeaten

against his former club

1:37:431:37:45

and Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp

is expecting a tough time

1:37:451:37:48

against a man he calls a legend.

1:37:481:37:56

We gave enough presence to him

already. In the home game, when we

1:37:561:38:05

played them, I think. And at

Newcastle.

1:38:051:38:12

Newcastle. So, we need to be really

focused, really concentrating on

1:38:121:38:16

that game. It will be interesting.

1:38:161:38:18

As it stands all fixtures

in the Scottish Cup quarter-finals

1:38:181:38:21

are due to take place,

today and tomorrow, including

1:38:211:38:23

Premiership leaders Celtic's,

match with Championship side

1:38:231:38:25

Greenock Morton.

1:38:251:38:31

Obviously a lot of work has gone on

around here. The pitch is fine. It

1:38:311:38:35

is playable for the game. There are

lots of works going on around the

1:38:351:38:40

stadium to make it safe and secure

for all the supporters tomorrow. We

1:38:401:38:44

have played a lot of games, so a bit

of a breather for a few days will

1:38:441:38:51

not do us any harm. The guys trained

well this morning.

Impressed by the

1:38:511:38:58

shovelling action them at.

They are

the real heroes, the grounds team.

1:38:581:39:02

Yes, all over the country. Places

like Southbend, they will be trying

1:39:021:39:08

to clear the pitch today. Well done

to all the ground staff.

1:39:081:39:11

Super League fixtures have

been hit by the weather,

1:39:111:39:13

but last night's games went ahead.

1:39:131:39:15

Hull FC got their season

back on track by beating

1:39:151:39:17

Warrington 21-12.

1:39:171:39:18

It was a bad tempered affair

in which both sides had a man sent

1:39:181:39:22

off, after two red cards.

1:39:221:39:23

Elsewhere Wigan moved up to second,

with a 32-12 win over Widnes.

1:39:231:39:31

If you are looking for a new sport

to warm you up during the cold

1:39:311:39:35

weather, all you need is a rather

bouncy ball. And wall, and your bare

1:39:351:39:40

hands.

This is like an oversized

squash ball.

Yes, a mob bouncy ball

1:39:401:39:45

than a squash all. -- more. This

sport is based on a playground game

1:39:451:39:52

but now it has been formalised.

Ahead of the UK wall ball

1:39:521:39:57

championships, I went to try it out

in west London.

1:39:571:40:03

It is the sport that started in the

playground when we were kids, and

1:40:031:40:07

now they want to take it back there

again, now that it is officially

1:40:071:40:11

known as wall ball. The beauty is

its simplicity. All you need is a

1:40:111:40:16

ball on the wall.

Similar to squash,

that even easier. All it has to do

1:40:161:40:22

is hit the wall and then land in the

court, and the rally carries on

1:40:221:40:27

until somebody misses the ball. This

has been going on for hundreds of

1:40:271:40:30

years all over the world. There are

2500 courts in New York. That is

1:40:301:40:34

what we want to see here.

It is

derived from the game of fives which

1:40:341:40:39

was first played in public school

centuries ago. But for fives, you

1:40:391:40:44

need four walls, whereas modern wall

ball is no such confines and can be

1:40:441:40:48

played anywhere, making it popular

with schoolchildren who are being

1:40:481:40:51

given taster sessions, and people of

all abilities and ages.

I'm like

1:40:511:40:54

this.

Does that feel good?

Yes!

Really good.

It has got me running

1:40:541:41:01

around. Hopefully I get rid of this

paunch.

The ball is bouncy if you

1:41:011:41:06

hit it really hard and you don't

want to hit it with too much power,

1:41:061:41:10

but a little bit of power.

It is

like paying tennis or squash without

1:41:101:41:15

a racket, you know? You are using

your hand. Anybody with arthritis, I

1:41:151:41:19

think it will do them a world of

good.

1:41:191:41:27

good.

The majority of people, they

find this really simple. It is right

1:41:311:41:36

and left co-ordination. When you are

thinking about things like stroke

1:41:361:41:39

rehabilitation and things like that,

right side and left side is so

1:41:391:41:43

important. For kids in their

development, for adults getting

1:41:431:41:46

active, it is simple and safe

movements which are very easy to do.

1:41:461:41:50

Which is

1:41:501:41:57

Which is why UK Wall Ball hopes to

spread this around to other cities

1:41:571:42:00

in the UK. The British team will

compete in the World Cup later this

1:42:001:42:04

year, with the men's team in the top

five. At the top level you can wear

1:42:041:42:08

gloves, so I have opted for that. At

an international level you do get a

1:42:081:42:12

sense of the power, speed and

tactics that you don't get in

1:42:121:42:16

similar games. Didn't even see it!

Now, that was a classic tactic in

1:42:161:42:20

this game, call blocking. One of the

brothers was just standing in front

1:42:201:42:24

of me, so I didn't see it until it

was too late.

Unlike squash, all

1:42:241:42:28

sports like that, you can actually

be an obstacle on court. So he is

1:42:281:42:34

allowed to be there. The ball can go

between his legs, passed in, you've

1:42:341:42:38

got to play it.

Whether you are

being blocked or not, you can always

1:42:381:42:43

be deceived by the bounce of the

ball.

1:42:431:42:47

I think that is what makes it fun,

the bouncing ball. See if you can

1:42:471:42:51

move it. What's! Too high.

Way too

high.

The one thing the director

1:42:511:42:58

said to Mike was, do not hit the

set.

It won't do any damage. It is

1:42:581:43:02

soft, relatively.

You are in

trouble.

I'll go and find it in a

1:43:021:43:07

minute. You get on with the rest of

the programme.

But the good thing

1:43:071:43:11

about the game is, that is all you

need?

Yes, similar to fives, all you

1:43:111:43:16

need is a wall on the ball. That is

why it is called wall ball.

Go find

1:43:161:43:20

your ball.

Thanks. A lot of

concentration on the weather this

1:43:201:43:25

morning. Chris has the big teacher

for us. -- picture.

1:43:251:43:28

Good morning. A fresh top up of snow

overnight, not that we needed any

1:43:311:43:35

extra. This is how things stand this

morning. 55 centimetres of snow now,

1:43:351:43:41

at St Athan near Cardiff. No wonder

people are struggling to get out and

1:43:411:43:46

about. We have a bit more snow to

come, especially across northern

1:43:461:43:50

indolence. Eastern counties of

Northern Ireland and eastern

1:43:501:43:52

Scotland as well. Elsewhere, in the

south, we will start to see things

1:43:521:43:57

turning less cold as the weekend

goes by. Cold wind is still with us

1:43:571:44:01

for most of the UK but we will get

slightly less cold air drifting into

1:44:011:44:05

southern counties later on today.

Now, on the satellite, lots of cloud

1:44:051:44:09

around. That cloud is at its

thickest across Wales and northern

1:44:091:44:12

England, where a weather front

continues to bring snow. We could

1:44:121:44:15

see a few more centimetres of snow

building here for a time. Eastern

1:44:151:44:19

Scotland is also seeing snow. For

eastern Scotland and north-east

1:44:191:44:22

England we also have something

called freezing rain. This is liquid

1:44:221:44:26

rain which has a temperature below

zero, and it freezes on impact. This

1:44:261:44:30

was one of our Weather Watcher

pictures sent to us yesterday. It

1:44:301:44:34

looks pretty, doesn't it? But this

ice is very dangerous. Nearby to

1:44:341:44:37

wear this picture was taken, there

was a ten car pileup on the A38. It

1:44:371:44:44

turns roads into skating rinks. That

is what I am worried about this

1:44:441:44:48

morning, we have that kind of

weather mixed with snow across

1:44:481:44:51

north-east England and eastern

Scotland. So if you are in that part

1:44:511:44:54

of the country take it easy on the

roads. Weatherwise, that snow will

1:44:541:44:58

continue in Northern Ireland eastern

parts of the UK. Showers affecting

1:44:581:45:02

southern Wales in south-west

England. There will be some snow

1:45:021:45:05

involved in that, especially across

the moors and the Brecon Beacons.

1:45:051:45:09

But more of a mixture of rain, sleet

and maybe a little bit of snow.

1:45:091:45:13

Temperatures still cold for most of

us, but less cold in the south.

1:45:131:45:17

London should reach about six

degrees this afternoon. Overnight

1:45:171:45:21

tonight, further showers pushing and

across England and Wales. Though the

1:45:211:45:24

snow to come. When. As temperatures

take a dive, widespread forced --

1:45:241:45:30

frost is forming, and ice will be a

hazard as we head into the first

1:45:301:45:34

parts of Sunday. So watch out for

icy roads and pavements first thing.

1:45:341:45:38

Obviously still lots of snow on the

ground, but that will gradually thaw

1:45:381:45:41

for many of us as we going into the

weekend. So the snow pack will

1:45:411:45:45

generally eased down. Further

showers across England and Wales.

1:45:451:45:48

Some of those will be quite heavy,

especially across southern parts in

1:45:481:45:52

the afternoon. Temperatures rising a

bit more, eight or nine degrees for

1:45:521:45:56

London and Cardiff, but still cold

in the north. Wintry showers in

1:45:561:46:01

eastern Scotland and north-east

England, and snow in the hills. We

1:46:011:46:04

will be trending to less cold

weather next week, but it will still

1:46:041:46:08

be cold across Scotland in

particular, and there will be a risk

1:46:081:46:12

of further snow at times across

northern parts, especially in the

1:46:121:46:15

hills. Further south, this is the

beginning of the end. We will see

1:46:151:46:18

things turning a bit less cold. That

is how the weather it shaping up. --

1:46:181:46:22

is.

1:46:221:46:24

Staying with the theme of this note

we have asked you to send in

1:46:301:46:34

pictures of how it is affecting you.

Lots of you are getting in touch,

1:46:341:46:38

send more photos to us

1:46:381:46:41

Lots of you are getting in touch,

send more photos to us.

1:46:411:46:47

It has been looking bitterly cold

over there. Very slowly from Alison.

1:46:491:46:58

Then, the response on a but for two

swans on a frozen lake.

1:46:581:47:05

We'll bring you the latest

headlines at 8:00.

1:47:051:47:08

Hello and welcome to Newswatch

with me, Samira Ahmed.

1:47:111:47:14

Too much airtime, too much fear

and not enough on other big news -

1:47:141:47:19

did the BBC go snowblind over

this week's weather?

1:47:191:47:24

And were BBC on-air staff put

in danger on endless

1:47:241:47:29

live outside broadcasts?

1:47:291:47:34

One story this week has dominated

television news output

1:47:341:47:36

and the Newswatch inbox, too,

so we will be focusing

1:47:361:47:44

in this programme on what has

1:47:441:47:46

been widely dubbed as -

1:47:461:47:47

well, let's hear the phrase

used by BBC presenters.

1:47:471:47:50

Now, it's been billed

as The Beast from the East,

1:47:501:47:53

a freezing weather front sweeping

in from Russia this week.

1:47:531:47:55

Are you ready for

The Beast from the East?

1:47:551:47:59

Weather blowing in from Russia

is set to make parts of the UK

1:47:591:48:01

colder than the Arctic.

1:48:011:48:02

Well, the blast of bitterly cold

weather over the last couple of days

1:48:021:48:06

has

come from Siberia.

1:48:061:48:07

The Beast from the East,

as it's been called.

1:48:071:48:09

But should the BBC have given that

nickname further currency?

1:48:091:48:12

No, thought a number

of viewers, including Mike.

1:48:121:48:14

The Beast from the East -

why have the BBC adopted this

1:48:141:48:18

trashy, tabloid headline

for the recent weather?

1:48:181:48:22

Surely the BBC news is above such

a ridiculous description?

1:48:221:48:25

More and more, we seem to be

lowering journalistic standards

1:48:251:48:27

in order to entertain

and maintain viewer figures.

1:48:271:48:33

And Ian tweeted along similar lines:

1:48:331:48:36

And that charge of hysteria

was made more widely,

1:48:451:48:47

for instance, by a

viewer called Linda:

1:48:471:48:50

And Gill agreed:

1:48:591:49:02

Another issue of concern

was the wisdom of sending reporters

1:49:121:49:15

and camera crews out to face

the elements around the country.

1:49:151:49:19

The weather today is brutal.

1:49:191:49:22

There's freezing temperatures

across pretty much the whole

1:49:221:49:24

of Scotland, and when the wind

blows, it feels much

1:49:241:49:27

colder than that.

1:49:271:49:32

It's pretty brutal here

at the moment, I have to say.

1:49:321:49:35

We've had blizzard conditions,

subzero temperatures,

1:49:351:49:37

winds of around 40mph.

1:49:371:49:40

It's -8 at the moment.

1:49:401:49:43

What this illustrates is how little

snow is needed to cause a problem.

1:49:431:49:47

There's hardly any on the surface

here, but it has frozen up and got

1:49:471:49:51

slippery and caused chaos

on this road this morning.

1:49:511:49:55

Danny Savage, and before him,

Lorna Gordon and Ben Brown

1:49:551:49:58

earning their crust there.

1:49:581:50:01

But Danny was one of a number

of people to pose this question:

1:50:011:50:04

Why do we continue to humiliate our

weather forecasters and reporters

1:50:061:50:11

by subjecting them to outside

broadcasts in such terrible weather?

1:50:111:50:15

Recently, during the infamous

Beast from the East,

1:50:151:50:20

the reporters were standing

outside in all conditions,

1:50:201:50:22

covered in snow.

1:50:221:50:26

Sometimes in treacherous conditions,

standing next to the road

1:50:261:50:31

or even

in the road, where there

1:50:311:50:33

was traffic trying to pass.

1:50:331:50:36

They quite easily could have been

knocked over by cars skidding.

1:50:361:50:40

It makes no sense to me why

they have to be out in that sort

1:50:401:50:44

of weather when it's quite easy,

like myself here, as you can see,

1:50:441:50:47

you can see the snow behind me,

but I'm still indoors,

1:50:471:50:50

reporting this to you.

1:50:501:50:55

Others questioned whether the BBC

News' interest in the weather had

1:50:551:50:58

something to do with geography?

1:50:581:51:03

Willie from Carlisle

put it like this:

1:51:031:51:06

But the main complaint this week

was about the sheer quantity

1:51:121:51:15

coverage of the weather.

1:51:151:51:17

Andrew was one of those who thought

the BBC went well over the top.

1:51:171:51:21

It was Samuel Johnson who said,

when two Englishmen meet,

1:51:211:51:28

that the first thing they do

is talk about the weather.

1:51:281:51:31

But I think we do take it

to extremes of the amount

1:51:311:51:34

of coverage we've had

in the last couple of days.

1:51:341:51:37

Every ten minutes,

with a five-minute warning

1:51:371:51:39

about the apocalyptic

snowfall coming up.

1:51:391:51:40

One good thing about this is that it

has taken Brexit off of the main

1:51:401:51:47

news for a time.

1:51:471:51:50

Oh, no, I tell a lie -

as I look now I can see they're

1:51:501:51:54

talking about Brexit on the TV.

1:51:541:51:56

So you can't have

everything in one go.

1:51:561:52:00

So yes, Brexit certainly featured

on BBC news this week,

1:52:001:52:02

as did Syria.

1:52:021:52:03

But Paul pointed out

that the extensive weather coverage

1:52:031:52:06

meant less time given

to that unfolding crisis.

1:52:061:52:10

You may have noticed it's

been snowing in the UK.

1:52:101:52:13

There's been a lot

about it on the news.

1:52:131:52:15

I've been prompted to contact

Newswatch because I watched the BBC

1:52:151:52:19

6pm news on Tuesday, I think it was,

and we went through the entire show

1:52:191:52:25

without once mentioning the huge,

emerging humanitarian disaster

1:52:251:52:28

that is Eastern Ghouta in Syria.

1:52:281:52:36

There was lots of footage

of children playing in the snow,

1:52:361:52:39

of reporters standing by motorways

with abandoned vehicles and lorries

1:52:391:52:42

trapped in snowdrifts.

1:52:421:52:45

But while children are playing

and tobogganing in the UK,

1:52:451:52:48

they are playing in bunkers

and underground in Syria.

1:52:481:52:56

Plenty to talk about there

with the controller of BBC News

1:52:571:53:00

channels, John, thank

you for coming on Newswatch.

1:53:001:53:03

No-one is saying that

snow wasn't a big story

1:53:031:53:05

but in the grand scheme of things,

there's a strong concern it came

1:53:051:53:09

at the cost of a lot of serious news

coverage that should have had more

1:53:091:53:13

prominence on air?

1:53:131:53:14

I think when you look at the scale

and severity of the disruption seen

1:53:141:53:18

this week, you can see why

we gave the snow story

1:53:181:53:20

the prominence we have.

1:53:201:53:22

In fact, much of that

are still ongoing.

1:53:221:53:24

The fact is we have had two red

weather warnings from the Met Office

1:53:241:53:31

- red means risk to life -

two on the same day in different

1:53:311:53:34

parts of the country, speaks,

I think, to the scale of the weather

1:53:341:53:38

disruption that was coming.

1:53:381:53:39

Disruption to public services,

to transport services -

1:53:391:53:41

clearly, we have had seen people

being stuck on motorways and trains

1:53:411:53:44

overnight

and that's in spite

1:53:441:53:49

of all the warnings given.

1:53:491:53:51

So we approached the story saying,

we know it's going to disrupt

1:53:511:53:54

peoples lives, we ought to warn

of that and report what happens.

1:53:541:53:57

That's what we have done this week.

1:53:571:53:59

In terms reporting what happens,

the viewers were saying that public

1:53:591:54:02

interest would have been adequately

served with less sheer

1:54:021:54:05

numbers of minutes.

1:54:051:54:06

More than ten minutes

at the top of the 6pm,

1:54:061:54:08

three days in row Tuesday,

Wednesday and Thursday.

1:54:081:54:10

And one of the viewers

there referring to the fact that

1:54:101:54:13

Syria did not get

a mention on Tuesday,

1:54:131:54:16

he felt, properly?

1:54:161:54:16

So the other way of looking

at the figures is how large

1:54:161:54:20

the viewing figures for the story

have been, either on the television

1:54:201:54:23

or digital platforms.

1:54:231:54:24

We know on Thursday night,

almost 9 million people

1:54:241:54:26

watched their regional

bulletin around England.

1:54:261:54:28

We know the story has been widely

read online with traffic up 20%

1:54:281:54:31

on many days.

1:54:311:54:33

Four of the top ten stories on any

given day being the snow story.

1:54:331:54:37

We know the viewing figures

to the BBC News Channel had been

1:54:371:54:40

consistently high all week.

1:54:401:54:41

Therefore, audience interest

in the story is there.

1:54:411:54:48

With regard to other news stories,

I could point to a considerable

1:54:481:54:51

coverage of Brexit

throughout the week.

1:54:511:54:53

With regards to Syria,

Jeremy Bowen spoke about Syria

1:54:531:54:55

on Sunday's 10pm news

and the hopes for a ceasefire.

1:54:551:54:58

Eastern Ghouta was the lead story

on the Radio 4 bulletins on Tuesday

1:54:581:55:01

morning.

1:55:011:55:02

It continued to feature

throughout our coverage throughout

1:55:021:55:04

the week, and Jeremy Bowen

is in Damascus now.

1:55:041:55:06

So I think we have managed

to balance the snow story

1:55:061:55:09

with all the other major news events

that have been going on.

1:55:091:55:12

Another issue that many viewers

raised was that BBC News only really

1:55:121:55:16

got interested in giving the snow

a lot of coverage when it

1:55:161:55:19

hit the south-east.

1:55:191:55:20

I don't think that's true.

1:55:201:55:21

Actually, we were warning people

throughout the weekend this

1:55:211:55:24

event was coming.

1:55:241:55:24

I think it started in

the south-east, but we were also

1:55:241:55:27

able to say, on Wednesday night,

for example, when there

1:55:271:55:30

was particularly severe disruption

in Scotland and northern and eastern

1:55:301:55:33

England, that's where the bulletin

coverage began, in those parts

1:55:331:55:36

of the country.

1:55:361:55:38

And it's interesting to note that

today, Glasgow has reported

1:55:381:55:41

the snowfall they have had in that

part of the world was the worst ever

1:55:411:55:45

at the airport.

1:55:451:55:46

And I think that speaks

to the scale of the disruption.

1:55:461:55:49

So the fact that Glasgow was top

of the coverage on Wednesday evening

1:55:491:55:52

was appropriate, I think.

1:55:521:55:53

Some viewers felt that,

even though there were amber and red

1:55:531:55:57

warnings from the Met Office,

that most of the population wasn't

1:55:571:56:00

in any danger at all, and perhaps

the BBC over-hyped the fear?

1:56:001:56:03

We have to report the severe weather

warnings when they come.

1:56:031:56:06

And when you have two red

warnings in the same day,

1:56:061:56:10

I think the last red warning we had

for snow was five years ago,

1:56:101:56:14

here we had two on the same day,

we have an agreement

1:56:141:56:17

with the Met Office that we will

report those things.

1:56:171:56:20

We reported them from the point

of view of what the potential

1:56:201:56:23

disruption would be and then

from what has actually happened.

1:56:231:56:31

People who have either been trapped

in their cars overnight

1:56:321:56:35

or on trains, as we

discussed earlier.

1:56:351:56:37

I think what we've done

there is report both proportionally

1:56:371:56:39

the potential danger

to people and the consequence

1:56:391:56:42

of what's happened.

1:56:421:56:42

The phrase 'The Beast from the East'

- too tabloid, overdramatic?

1:56:421:56:45

Well, we didn't coin the phrase

Beast from the East.

1:56:451:56:48

Well, we didn't coin the phrase

Beast from the East.

1:56:481:56:51

No, but you've used it, a lot.

1:56:511:56:53

We've used it when it

seemed appropriate.

1:56:531:56:55

It hasn't tended to be used

in our actual weather forecasts,

1:56:551:56:58

from a meteorological standpoint.

1:56:581:56:59

It's helpful in one regard

in that it tells people

1:56:591:57:04

It also tells them where

it's coming from - i.e.

1:57:041:57:06

it's coming from from Siberia.

1:57:061:57:08

And we were able to tell people

that this was not just going to be

1:57:081:57:12

snow or ice, it's going to be

the wind and extreme cold.

1:57:121:57:15

I think one of the features of this

week has been how cold it has been

1:57:151:57:19

and on our new digital products,

our website and app,

1:57:191:57:22

we are able to give people

a feels-like feature,

1:57:221:57:25

which tells people what the weather

conditions are going to be.

1:57:251:57:28

Was it really necessary

or a sensible use of licence-fee

1:57:281:57:30

payers' money to send armies

of crews out to do all those lives,

1:57:301:57:34

often in white-out conditions?

1:57:341:57:35

I'm not sure it was armies.

1:57:351:57:37

We worked very closely

with our colleagues around

1:57:371:57:40

the nations of the UK and around

the English regions to make sure

1:57:401:57:43

those deployments are proportional.

1:57:431:57:44

Actually, there's been

an awful lot to report on.

1:57:441:57:47

We've sent people out where we think

there's a story to cover.

1:57:471:57:50

Actually, some of those people have

been in traffic jams themselves,

1:57:501:57:53

they are perfectly

well-equipped and trained,

1:57:531:57:55

they are with colleagues who can

make sure they are safe.

1:57:551:57:58

We take their safety

extremely seriously,

1:57:581:57:59

so I think some of the work those

people have done has been pretty

1:57:591:58:03

hardy, pretty plucky

and very impressive.

1:58:031:58:05

On safety, a lot of viewers

complained in particular

1:58:051:58:07

about Sian Lloyd being made to stand

what looked quite precariously close

1:58:071:58:12

to speeding lorries,

and it might even have been possible

1:58:121:58:15

she was standing in the road -

there were abandoned cars

1:58:151:58:18

behind her, it was hard to tell.

1:58:181:58:20

People are concerned that

perhaps staff are being put

1:58:201:58:22

in danger unnecessarily?

1:58:221:58:23

I'd like to reassure people

that is not the case.

1:58:231:58:26

We take their safety

extremely seriously.

1:58:261:58:27

As I say, from the point of view

of how well they are equipped,

1:58:271:58:31

so they're suitably warm.

1:58:311:58:32

But also they have colleagues

with them to make sure they are safe

1:58:321:58:36

at all times.

1:58:361:58:37

They are also highly trained

and we have very strict protocols

1:58:371:58:40

around that, so I hope I can

reassure people on that one.

1:58:401:58:43

Thank you so much.

1:58:431:58:45

1:59:031:59:06

coverage again next week.

1:59:061:59:07

Goodbye.

1:59:071:59:07

Hello this is Breakfast,

with Tina Daheley and Charlie Stayt.

1:59:491:59:52

Weather warnings for snow and icy

roads remain in place

1:59:521:59:54

across much of the UK,

causing further disruption.

1:59:541:59:57

Thousands of homes are still

without power and 15 flood

1:59:572:00:01

warnings are in place -

as temperatures are

2:00:012:00:03

gradually expected to rise.

2:00:032:00:06

In south-east London,

police were called after people

2:00:062:00:10

stuck on trains, started jumping

on to the tracks.

2:00:102:00:18

And the rail line Dawlish has just

closed due to flooding because of

2:00:202:00:24

high tides.

2:00:242:00:33

Good morning it's

Saturday 3rd March.

2:00:332:00:39

Also this morning:

2:00:392:00:44

Facing up to "some hard facts"

2:00:442:00:45

the Prime Minister says neither side

will get everything they want

2:00:452:00:48

from Brexit but argues the UK and EU

are close to a deal on transition.

2:00:482:00:52

The remote colony of

penguins - discovered

2:00:522:00:54

thanks to their droppings.

2:00:542:00:55

In sport

2:00:552:01:00

It is going to the wire for England

and New Zealand. The Kiwis are

2:01:002:01:07

fighting back.

2:01:072:01:08

And we'll have the weather.

2:01:082:01:13

It is looking like a cold and frosty

start, a big risk of ice, take it

2:01:132:01:18

easy on the road. There will be more

snow to come across northern areas

2:01:182:01:21

but will not be as heavy as in

recent days and will start to turn

2:01:212:01:25

less cold from the south-west

through the weekend.

2:01:252:01:28

Good morning.

2:01:282:01:30

First, our main story.

2:01:302:01:35

Weather warnings for snow

and ice remain in place

2:01:352:01:37

across much of the UK -

that's despite temperatures

2:01:372:01:39

being expected to gradually

rise in many areas.

2:01:392:01:41

2,000 homes are without

power and motorists

2:01:412:01:43

and rail passengers face further

disruption on the road

2:01:432:01:45

and rail network.

2:01:452:01:45

In the last few minutes the rail

line and Dawlish has been closed

2:01:512:01:55

again due to flooding because of

high tides.

2:01:552:01:58

Last night, police were called

to Lewisham in south-east

2:01:582:02:00

London as passengers,

who'd been stuck on a train,

2:02:002:02:02

opened the doors and climbed

onto the tracks, as Simon Clemison

2:02:022:02:05

reports.

2:02:052:02:09

After the big freeze, the big four.

Temperatures in Wales could reach as

2:02:092:02:12

high as seven in some parts. But

problems for the public transport

2:02:122:02:16

sector continue after what has been

a difficult night. The moment some

2:02:162:02:22

rail passengers dispensed with the

train.

2:02:222:02:26

We have been stuck on the train

for 2.5 hours, luckily now we can

2:02:262:02:30

walk down the tracks,

as you can see, everyone is getting

2:02:302:02:38

out from the train, we are just

outside Lewisham station.

2:02:392:02:47

The operator has warned people

against walking on the line,

2:02:512:02:54

and said turning off the power

cause further delays.

2:02:542:02:56

Looking forward to getting home

and having a cup of tea.

2:02:562:03:01

Flood warnings were

in place today, both

2:03:012:03:02

here and the south-west coast

where the railway has been closed

2:03:022:03:05

once again, and in the north-east.

2:03:052:03:13

In Devon, hospitals have been

treating the injured. There have

2:03:172:03:19

been appeals to owners of four by

four vehicles to help patients and

2:03:192:03:25

staff. Workers continued overnight

at one hospital.

2:03:252:03:32

We could not have coped without the

four by four drivers, you guys have

2:03:402:03:43

been amazing.

All eyes will be on

the transport network again this

2:03:432:03:48

morning. Heathrow is to run an

almost full schedule but many rail

2:03:482:03:53

services will be disrupted.

2:03:532:03:56

Let's find out what the

situation is like in

2:03:562:03:58

the North East of England this

morning - our reporter,

2:03:582:04:01

Alison Freeman is in Alnwick.

2:04:012:04:02

Behind you Alice and I can see a few

vehicles on the road. What is the

2:04:022:04:06

situation?

Yes, this is still very

deserted when you consider that this

2:04:062:04:13

is the main route from the

north-east of England up to

2:04:132:04:16

Scotland, and it really isn't fully

open yet. That's because the head

2:04:162:04:21

more northerly on the A1 we still

have problems. The road has been

2:04:212:04:25

cleared, and larger snowdrifts are

being blown across from the fields

2:04:252:04:29

back to the road, and in some places

only one carriageway is open. To

2:04:292:04:34

combat that the police are escorting

convoys of traffic to get the most

2:04:342:04:39

important people where they need to

go. The other problem they are

2:04:392:04:42

facing is that people are trying to

bypass the A1 altogether, and on

2:04:422:04:48

country roads, and when they do that

they are getting stuck. Mountain

2:04:482:04:51

rescue have been out and about

rescuing people who have got into

2:04:512:04:54

trouble. But with less now expected

today people's concerns are turning

2:04:542:04:59

to ice on the road. We've seen some

vehicles slipping around, and as

2:04:592:05:03

well as the eyes we are thinking

about flood warnings. On the

2:05:032:05:09

north-east coast flood warnings in

place from Sunderland to Whitley Bay

2:05:092:05:12

because of spring tides and strong

winds, we know it is affecting the

2:05:122:05:15

south-west of England as well. But

some good news for motorists, the

2:05:152:05:20

M62 reopen slightly earlier this

morning, but again the message from

2:05:202:05:25

emergency services is pleased to

travel unless you have to. They

2:05:252:05:28

don't want to be trying to help

stranded people when they could be

2:05:282:05:31

doing other work instead.

2:05:312:05:34

Our reporter, Tomos

Morgan is in Cardiff -

2:05:342:05:37

what's the situation this morning?

2:05:372:05:45

The snow has finished falling here

this morning but the wind has picked

2:05:502:05:53

up. It is bitterly cold in this area

of Cardiff. Behind me the train

2:05:532:05:59

station, no trains running there

yesterday. The majority of routes

2:05:592:06:02

across rails were suspended

yesterday. The airport was closed.

2:06:022:06:09

This road is typical of some of the

main roads through suburban areas of

2:06:092:06:13

Cardiff, across the high streets.

Some areas of roads are completely

2:06:132:06:19

covered in snow, we have seen hardly

any vehicles passes, and one that

2:06:192:06:24

did not start coming out of a

residential road just around the

2:06:242:06:27

corner. South Wales Fire Service

have said they have had a number of

2:06:272:06:31

calls from people saying we had

frozen water pipes or burst pipes

2:06:312:06:35

because of the cold weather, and the

emergency services as we just heard

2:06:352:06:38

have also been affected. This

morning I saw one woman in her

2:06:382:06:45

scrubs one comeback not out after a

12 hour shift. Our weather warning

2:06:452:06:51

still in place until 11 o'clock four

eyes.

2:06:512:06:57

As we're hearing today, snow is not

necessarily as much of a problem

2:06:582:07:04

today, the issue is winds, eyes and

flooding in some places.

2:07:042:07:07

Chris Fawkes will have

a full weather forecast

2:07:072:07:09

in around 10 minutes time.

2:07:092:07:10

The Prime Minister's

speech on Britain leaving

2:07:102:07:12

the European Union has been given

a cautious welcome by both the Leave

2:07:122:07:15

and Remain wings of her own party.

2:07:152:07:19

Theresa May set out her

vision of the UK's future

2:07:192:07:22

trading relationship with the EU

and said all sides would have

2:07:222:07:25

to make concessions.

2:07:252:07:27

Our political

correspondent Tom Barton

2:07:272:07:28

is in the London newsroom.

2:07:282:07:36

Quite an achievement to have people

from both sides seem relatively

2:07:362:07:40

positive things, but in reality,

what progress was made?

2:07:402:07:47

This was a big moment from the Prime

Minister's perspective. Laying out

2:07:472:07:53

provision of the future of Britain's

relationship with the EE you. Our

2:07:532:07:56

message was that she wants Britain

to make a clean break with those big

2:07:562:08:02

EU institutions, the single market

and the customs union, but beyond

2:08:022:08:05

that she once the relationship to be

as close as possible. There is a big

2:08:052:08:12

question over how well that message

will go down with EU leaders. They

2:08:122:08:15

were part of her audience. But she

was busy trying to unite her party.

2:08:152:08:21

And at this stage that seems to have

been as excess. A positive and

2:08:212:08:27

cautious welcome from both sides.

The outspoken Brexiteers Jacob Rees

2:08:272:08:34

Mogg welcome the speech saying that

some will have concerns but saying

2:08:342:08:38

that now is not the time to

nit-pick. The remaining campaigner

2:08:382:08:42

Anna Soubry describe this week as a

step forward but warned that

2:08:422:08:46

negotiations would be extremely

competitive.

Tom, thank you.

2:08:462:08:53

Two men have been arrested

by police investigating

2:08:532:08:55

an explosion in Leicester that

killed five people.

2:08:552:09:00

The men, both in their 30s,

and from East Anglia,

2:09:002:09:03

are being held on suspicion

of conspiracy to cause an explosion.

2:09:032:09:05

Three other men, also in their 30s,

were arrested on suspicion

2:09:052:09:08

of manslaughter on Wednesday

and continue to be

2:09:082:09:12

questioned by detectives.

and continue to be

2:09:122:09:13

The body which sets the rules

for world football is expected

2:09:132:09:15

to approve the use of video replay

technology throughout the sport

2:09:152:09:18

when it meets in Zurich today.

2:09:182:09:20

The system has been used

on a trial basis in several

2:09:202:09:22

countries, including some

cup matches in England.

2:09:222:09:24

But there are concerns that it

disrupts the flow of a game

2:09:242:09:27

while confusing officials.

2:09:272:09:32

Gary Oban has told BBC news about

his excitement at the prospect of

2:09:322:09:36

landing his first Academy Awards. He

is tipped to win best actor for his

2:09:362:09:41

role as Winston Churchill in the

film Darkest Hour. Speaking ahead of

2:09:412:09:48

the Oscars ceremony in Los Angeles

he said it was an honour to play the

2:09:482:09:51

former minister.

2:09:512:09:56

I am feeling, I'm feeling

very good about it.

2:09:562:09:59

Sunday would be, these things

will be what they will be,

2:09:592:10:06

They either they call

your name or they don't.

2:10:062:10:09

But the ride has been,

the ride has been enjoyable,

2:10:092:10:11

and to be recognised

for playing Winston

2:10:112:10:13

Churchill, it is...

2:10:132:10:14

The prize in itself.

2:10:142:10:22

I think is in with a very good

chance of winning that one.

2:10:232:10:26

Not all heroes wear capes -

some prefer the altogether more

2:10:262:10:30

modest high-vis vest.

2:10:302:10:30

They have been out in force

in the streets of Bristol keeping

2:10:302:10:33

people safe in the snow

as Breakfast's John Maguire

2:10:332:10:35

has been finding out.

2:10:352:10:43

Their mission is to make our streets

safer. These are the community snow

2:10:442:10:48

workings. -- snow wardens.

I like

being part of the community and it's

2:10:482:10:58

something people appreciate. People

say thank you, and it is just nice.

2:10:582:11:02

Trained by Bristol City Council and

how to keep themselves safe and had

2:11:022:11:05

a clear food fast for their

neighbours, there has not been a

2:11:052:11:08

great need for their services in

recent years. This is the first time

2:11:082:11:12

you have used it?

The first serious

time, yes.

Why do you do it?

We live

2:11:122:11:19

in a hilly area in Bristol, if there

is snow, the problem is ours, it is

2:11:192:11:23

not somebody else's problem. We have

to try and solve ourselves.

2:11:232:11:31

to try and solve ourselves. I think

communities are as important as

2:11:332:11:34

families really. You have always got

your community, you might not always

2:11:342:11:38

have your family.

As vehicles slip

and slide their way along the

2:11:382:11:42

streets, most people here have opted

to travel on foot. So clear

2:11:422:11:47

pavements are much appreciated.

2:11:472:11:53

pavements are much appreciated. But

as we struggle to cope with whether

2:11:532:11:56

many of us now rarely see in much of

the UK...

That is why Darfur for a

2:11:562:12:01

pram...

2:12:012:12:06

pram...

Programme's. Visiting from

the Ukraine, this is a Bosman's on

2:12:062:12:09

the day.

I do indeed live in the

Ukraine, it was -41 left. Slightly

2:12:092:12:14

chilly over there as well. It is

funny coming back for a few days and

2:12:142:12:18

having this year in the UK.

2:12:182:12:24

having this year in the UK.

We are

only half a mile away from the

2:12:252:12:28

centre of Bristol, but as you can

see lots of these roads are still

2:12:282:12:30

covered in snow. When you think

about it, it doesn't matter how good

2:12:302:12:35

a job is done clearing motorways and

A roads. If you can't even get out

2:12:352:12:39

your front door, what is the point?

And that is where these wardens

2:12:392:12:43

comment. As much as their efforts

are appreciated, a soul would make

2:12:432:12:49

life much easier. But until that

happens, these volunteers will be

2:12:492:12:52

out in force and thankfully, in both

senses of the word, there is plenty

2:12:522:12:57

of grit.

2:12:572:13:07

The armed forces have

been lending a hand,

2:13:112:13:12

helping NHS staff and patients

get to hospitals.

2:13:122:13:14

Let's speak to Lieutenant

Colonel Dave Nicholson,

2:13:142:13:16

who has been assisting people

in North Devon.

2:13:162:13:18

Can you tell us what happened from

the moment you got the phone call?

2:13:182:13:22

Certainly. We are based here in

North Devon, I'm in charge of the

2:13:222:13:28

logistics regiment, and we were

activated in support of local

2:13:282:13:33

authorities. We have sent two teams

down to Exeter, consisting of

2:13:332:13:38

military vehicles, four by four

vehicles, alongside civilian four by

2:13:382:13:48

fours that we have. In order to

support the local authority,

2:13:482:13:52

primarily the NHS, in moving

critical clinicians, midwives,

2:13:522:13:57

doctors and consultants, around

2:13:572:14:03

doctors and consultants, around the

community, ensuring that critical

2:14:032:14:04

medical support is delivered. And in

addition to that we are moving

2:14:042:14:10

patients from those rural areas back

to hospitals. It has been a busy 24

2:14:102:14:15

hours but we're very pleased to

support local community.

Getting

2:14:152:14:20

people to and from shifts, moving

patients around, and your team is

2:14:202:14:24

Arctic trained, so they are used to

these conditions. Well used to them.

2:14:242:14:28

Other public are not necessarily

used to seeing you having a presence

2:14:282:14:32

on the streets. What has the

reaction been?

The reaction has been

2:14:322:14:37

excellent. It is certainly great for

us to be able to write support back

2:14:372:14:42

to the local communities. Royal

Marine commandos and colleagues in

2:14:422:14:47

the army commando filled routinely

operate, we have teams out there at

2:14:472:14:51

the moment in temperatures much

colder than this, between - 18 and -

2:14:512:15:01

25 routinely, and we have equipment

to operate in those conditions.

2:15:012:15:05

People are very well trained in snow

and ice training, and we routinely

2:15:052:15:08

train in those conditions in

northern Norway, and on the roads of

2:15:082:15:15

Norway, and therefore this is good

Royal Marine conditions and we're

2:15:152:15:19

used to it. But I understand it is

not for the civilian population. The

2:15:192:15:24

teams on the ground have found that

the reaction from the local ablation

2:15:242:15:29

has been extremely positive. And we

are very pleased to get back and

2:15:292:15:33

provide some positive feedback on

the training provided, the extra

2:15:332:15:41

training we get from the taxpayer.

And not just for you are, but Armed

2:15:412:15:47

Forces have been drafted in all over

the country, sometimes to help

2:15:472:15:50

people stranded on motorways and

roads. We're looking at people

2:15:502:15:54

helped out in Edinburgh. Have you

ever been involved in something like

2:15:542:15:58

this before in the UK, this type of

emergency, caused by severe weather

2:15:582:16:03

and snow and ice?

It is not

routinely done in reaction to snow

2:16:032:16:11

and ice, but we have had this sort

of response to the local authorities

2:16:112:16:17

and requests from local authorities

in the past. You may the flooding

2:16:172:16:19

that occurred particularly at the

Somerset Levels several years ago,

2:16:192:16:24

but also food and mouth ten years

ago when the military was called in

2:16:242:16:29

to support local authorities to sort

out these problems. It is something

2:16:292:16:33

we are extremely pleased to be a

will to do, feedback to the local

2:16:332:16:38

community, and the teams enjoy doing

it.

Thank you first begin to us this

2:16:382:16:42

morning, doing vital work helping to

support people across the UK, in

2:16:422:16:47

your case in Devon.

2:16:472:16:53

Here's Chris with a look

at this morning's weather.

2:16:532:16:55

Here's Chris with a look

at this morning's weather.

2:16:552:16:56

Here's Chris with a look

at this morning's weather.

2:16:562:17:00

Chris, how many troops as it take to

push a large truck? Look at that.

2:17:002:17:04

That is one way to get a truck on

the move or either way, dogma what

2:17:042:17:08

the circumstances are.

What isn't

side at?

Houser looking for the rest

2:17:082:17:17

of us today.

2:17:172:17:19

side at?

Houser looking for the rest

of us today.

2:17:192:17:22

It looks like the strongest man

competition. What a great job. As

2:17:222:17:26

far as the weather goes, we have had

fresh snowfall, not that we needed

2:17:262:17:30

any more, and the State of play is

that we now have 55 centimetres on

2:17:302:17:34

the ground near Cardiff. No wonder

communities are still struggling in

2:17:342:17:38

all this extreme weather. But it

will ease somewhat through the

2:17:382:17:44

course of the weekend with

temperatures gradually creeping up.

2:17:442:17:48

We still have a bit more still to

come across parts of Scotland,

2:17:482:17:52

Northern Ireland and northern

England. The cold air is still in

2:17:522:17:56

place but eventually things will get

less cold from the south as we go

2:17:562:17:59

through the weekend. But we have got

more snowfall and further problems

2:17:592:18:03

to come today. The satellite picture

shows extensive cloud cover, and the

2:18:032:18:09

thickest is this part working across

Wales and Northern Ireland at the

2:18:092:18:13

moment. That is a weather front

bringing the risk of snow. Snow is

2:18:132:18:17

pushing northwards, snow showers for

Scotland. For eastern Scotland and

2:18:172:18:21

part of eastern England we also have

freezing rain. This is liquid rain

2:18:212:18:25

that has a temperature below zero

and it freezes on impact. This is

2:18:252:18:30

what happened in Devon yesterday,

this is the ice that builds up as a

2:18:302:18:34

result of freezing rain. And nearby,

at the same sort of time as this

2:18:342:18:38

photograph came in, we had a ten car

pile-up on the A30 eight. It can be

2:18:382:18:44

incredibly dangerous, turning roads

into ice rings, and we have that

2:18:442:18:46

risk this morning across eastern

Scotland and North East England. If

2:18:462:18:50

you're heading onto the roads bear

in mind we could have incredibly

2:18:502:18:54

dangerous conditions, black eyes and

dangerous slippery conditions on the

2:18:542:18:57

pavements as well. A few more

centimetres of snow to come across

2:18:572:19:01

northern areas. Showers mainly

confined to south-west England as we

2:19:012:19:05

go through the day. Wales will

become dry as the showers move away

2:19:052:19:10

over the next few hours. Turning a

little less cold in the South.

2:19:102:19:14

Overnight will be cold again with

temperatures dipping below freezing.

2:19:142:19:19

Further showers pushing northwards.

And again a widespread ice risk into

2:19:192:19:24

Sunday. Sunday will see further

showers driving away northwards.

2:19:242:19:30

Watch out for icy conditions first

thing. Snow across eastern Scotland,

2:19:302:19:34

and through the day hill snow is

likely across north-east England and

2:19:342:19:39

eastern Scotland. Morally wintry mix

with rain, sleet and snow at low

2:19:392:19:43

levels. Further south, showers will

fall as rain through the afternoon

2:19:432:19:48

as temperatures pushed up to nine

Celsius in London. The trend for

2:19:482:19:53

less cold weather will continue into

next week as well.

2:19:532:20:00

less cold weather will continue into

next week as well.

2:20:002:20:01

Cancer of the oesophagus might not

be one of the best known

2:20:012:20:04

cancers but it's one

of the most deadly.

2:20:042:20:10

Last year, it was responsible

for nearly 8,000 deaths

2:20:102:20:12

because it is very hard to spot

in time for a cure.

2:20:122:20:15

Paid for by public donations

to "stand up to cancer",

2:20:152:20:17

doctors and physicists in Cambridge

have joined forces to develop

2:20:172:20:20

a new type of camera that could pick

out abnormal cells before

2:20:202:20:23

they develop into cancer.

2:20:232:20:24

Ahead of the first

trials on patients,

2:20:242:20:25

our Science Correspondent,

Richard Westcott has been

2:20:252:20:27

to see how it works.

2:20:272:20:30

Right now this is how you find one

of Britain's deadliest cancers.

2:20:302:20:38

of Britain's deadliest cancers. A

soft goal cancer kills 21 people a

2:20:382:20:40

day because it is so difficult to

spot. Using a camera with a normal

2:20:402:20:46

white light on the end, the doctor

is looking at the dark red patch. It

2:20:462:20:52

is a condition that is not dangerous

in itself, but can contain cells

2:20:522:20:56

that turn cancerous, if you can find

them.

Early cancer appears as

2:20:562:21:06

Redmond. Because we're looking at

the contrast between red and red,

2:21:062:21:09

this might be very difficult to

appreciate.

, is a problem, but also

2:21:092:21:16

a solution. These physicists already

use different coloured lasers to

2:21:162:21:19

study electrons. Now they are

adapting the technique to look for

2:21:192:21:24

early signs of disease. The current

camera looks down the throat using

2:21:242:21:29

white light, and that makes it quite

hard to spot the cancer. The new

2:21:292:21:33

camera is going to look using

different coloured lights, and to

2:21:332:21:37

get the right colour, it should make

the potentially cancerous cells low.

2:21:372:21:43

What happens is the tissue becomes

cancerous is we get a change in the

2:21:432:21:48

chemical composition, and different

chemicals are different colours,

2:21:482:21:50

meaning that if we look at the

cancer with a technique that allows

2:21:502:21:54

us to capture information from all

the different colours of light that

2:21:542:21:57

are being reflected, we can get a

fuller picture of the disease

2:21:572:22:00

presents.

And this is how it might

look. The idea has come from a

2:22:002:22:06

cancer research programme where

scientists, engineers and medic is

2:22:062:22:12

joining forces to find cancer early.

Most of our patients present late,

2:22:122:22:17

and for cancer of the oesophagus as

an example, two thirds of our

2:22:172:22:22

patients present with a cancer that

is already spreading to the lymph

2:22:222:22:26

glands, and after that it can go to

distant organs like the liver. If we

2:22:262:22:30

treat cancer at that point at which

it is still within the tissue of the

2:22:302:22:35

software gives itself and has not

spread anywhere, we can remove it

2:22:352:22:38

all and curate.

That is is that what

happened to Jackie. The court heard

2:22:382:22:45

Aziz in time, and she is fine.

I

knew there is something wrong.

2:22:452:22:50

Debuchy not have heartburn for 20

odd years, actually it was 30 years.

2:22:502:22:58

Yes, you have to be diagnosed early,

because when you are diagnosed early

2:22:582:23:01

you can do something about it.

They

will start trials of the new camera

2:23:012:23:08

on patients in the next few weeks.

If successful it could also be used

2:23:082:23:11

to spot other cancers before they

become fatal.

2:23:112:23:18

You're watching

Breakfast from BBC News.

2:23:182:23:20

Time now for a look

at the newspapers.

2:23:202:23:28

Professor of entrepreneurship,

Vikas Shah,

2:23:292:23:31

is here to tell us what's

caught his eye.

2:23:312:23:39

The first story was fascinating. It

is about Silicon Valley Ilia Mares

2:23:412:23:44

who are taking extreme stress. Up in

order to reduce stress levels. They

2:23:442:23:50

are working with experts to go and

do Arctic claims and ice swimming

2:23:502:23:57

and these things, because their 40s,

it would put our bodies through

2:23:572:24:01

stress, it helps us with stress.

These are people who work in things

2:24:012:24:09

to do with technology, and slightly

unreal things, if you like, so what

2:24:092:24:15

they want is a big dose of reality?

What you often find is with people

2:24:152:24:21

at that point in their career, their

day jobs are so intense and so

2:24:212:24:25

all-consuming that they need their

lives outside business to also have

2:24:252:24:29

those same qualities, so imagine you

are doing 18 hour days building a

2:24:292:24:34

multi-billion dollar business, and

then you go home. It is, what now?

2:24:342:24:39

That's why these people are

following extreme activities to keep

2:24:392:24:41

up that level through their lives.

They describe it as the idea that

2:24:412:24:45

you target self-imposed modules of

daily misery to prepare themselves

2:24:452:24:50

for their daily lives. My theory on

this is that partly it is bragging

2:24:502:24:56

rights. I wonder about breast,

that's nothing, I went up... But

2:24:562:25:00

also, do you not think people who

are in powerful positions, actually

2:25:002:25:05

be to really ordinary things?

Because that would make them

2:25:052:25:08

understand people better.

The

problem is, exactly as you said,

2:25:082:25:13

when your peer group is living that

Instagram lifestyle of, "I have just

2:25:132:25:18

claimed this" or whatever it might

be, that becomes the measure by

2:25:182:25:24

which evaluate yourself against.

And

also Silicon Valley is very male

2:25:242:25:28

dominated.

100%. And this is the

caricature of that hyper alpha,

2:25:282:25:38

masculine world.

This story is

focusing on London, cold on the

2:25:382:25:44

loan, one man's struggle in freezing

London.

To contrast the story of

2:25:442:25:51

people doing at Austin to be for

enjoyment, this is the very real

2:25:512:25:54

situation where charities estimate

that in the UK 8000 people are

2:25:542:25:58

sleeping rough at any one time, with

a similar amount of hidden homeless.

2:25:582:26:02

And this story focused on a

gentleman who has been living rough

2:26:022:26:05

on and off for 32 years. And the

talked about how with his health

2:26:052:26:09

challenges the only time he gets

respite from living on the streets

2:26:092:26:12

is when he is in hospital receiving

treatment, then he is back out to

2:26:122:26:15

areas. And the challenge we have

sometimes is that these topics come

2:26:152:26:21

into the forefront of our minds at

Christmas when the weather is bad,

2:26:212:26:25

but for the rest of the year, these

charities simply aren't getting the

2:26:252:26:29

support they need to really help

people into accommodation, and to

2:26:292:26:33

get back into life.

In terms of

money raising, the trick is to make

2:26:332:26:40

sure the attention is drawn to them

at specific times, to make sure that

2:26:402:26:43

injuries.

And we find that working

with charities during periods of

2:26:432:26:49

cold weather, Christmas, those times

of the year, they are oversubscribed

2:26:492:26:53

with volunteers and supplies, and

that the struggle for the rest of

2:26:532:26:57

the year when they are still just as

needed.

Time for one more story.

2:26:572:27:02

Let's go with Mark arm and, because

this scared me. He received his OBE,

2:27:022:27:08

and I thought, this is very nice,

very well-deserved, then a reason

2:27:082:27:12

what happened, and the reason it

scared me is that I will be in his

2:27:122:27:16

shoes next Thursday, and I didn't

realise at the time that you have to

2:27:162:27:20

speak to the Royal as well as

getting the medal pinned on. And so

2:27:202:27:24

I have been getting these thoughts,

what on earth will I talk to them

2:27:242:27:26

about? !

What have you been awarded?

And MBE, not quite as high as Marc

2:27:262:27:37

Almond. What I didn't realise at the

time, the whole ceremonial process

2:27:372:27:42

of talking to them and having a

conversation about your work,

2:27:422:27:45

actually nerve-racking. The first

time I have felt that since

2:27:452:27:48

graduation.

By all accounts in that

situation the Royals are very good

2:27:482:27:54

at putting people at their ease and

showing interest in what you do. And

2:27:542:27:58

I dare say the nature of your work,

entrepreneurship, they will be

2:27:582:28:01

interested.

Absolutely. But it just

makes you realise, even for

2:28:012:28:07

celebrities like Marc Almond, there

will always be certain situations

2:28:072:28:10

that make you feel very

uncomfortable, albeit in a good way

2:28:102:28:15

and reading that article suddenly

you get those butterflies in your

2:28:152:28:17

stomach. It's just a wonderful thing

and I know sometimes people get a

2:28:172:28:23

bit iffy about the honours system,

but I think actually recognising

2:28:232:28:25

people from charities is wonderful.

Not to name drop, but I did spend

2:28:252:28:32

some time with Prince William this

week and he is very relaxed. I'm

2:28:322:28:35

sure the conversation will be fine.

It is not a bad thing to be nervous

2:28:352:28:39

sometimes. That is a healthy thing,

isn't it?

I think it is Imada think

2:28:392:28:44

anyone who denies that is release

Kerry. -- it is scary. I forget to

2:28:442:28:51

join top of your game, and it is

good emotion to feel.

Don't

2:28:512:28:55

overthink it. We will see when an

hour four more from the papers.

2:28:552:29:02

Stay with us. The headlines are

coming up.

2:29:022:29:08

Hello, this is Breakfast

with Tina Daheley and Charlie Stayt.

2:30:072:30:09

Coming up before 9am,

Chris will bring you the weather -

2:30:092:30:12

that's in 15 minutes time.

2:30:122:30:20

But first, at 8.30,

a summary of this

2:30:212:30:23

morning's main news.

2:30:232:30:24

Weather warnings for snow

and ice remain in place

2:30:242:30:26

across much of the UK -

that's despite temperatures

2:30:262:30:28

being expected to gradually

rise in many areas.

2:30:282:30:30

2,000 homes are without power

and motorists and rail passengers

2:30:302:30:32

face further disruption.

2:30:322:30:33

In the last half an hour,

the rail line at Dawlish

2:30:332:30:36

has been closed again,

due to flooding

2:30:362:30:38

caused by high tides.

2:30:382:30:39

Network Rail say it is currently

unsafe to go on the site.

2:30:392:30:43

The National Farmers Union says

dairy farms are having to throw away

2:30:432:30:46

milk because tankers

are unable to collect it.

2:30:462:30:48

Let's speak to Mark Wareham

from Somerset who has had to pour

2:30:482:30:51

away around 8,000 litres so far.

2:30:512:30:57

Good morning, Mark. It's a slightly

fuzzy picture of you but hopefully

2:30:582:31:05

you can hear me OK. Tell us what it

has been like for you over the past

2:31:052:31:10

few days.

Very challenging.

Obviously extreme weather

2:31:102:31:13

conditions. It just makes life very

difficult.

How does it work in

2:31:132:31:21

practice, Mark? Because normally the

tankers come to pick up the milk.

2:31:212:31:25

What is happening? OK, normally our

milk is collected every evening at

2:31:252:31:31

around 7:30pm. The tanker arrives,

takes away the milk and that is a

2:31:312:31:36

daily occurrence.

How has it worked

in relation to what has been extreme

2:31:362:31:43

weather? Presumably they haven't

been able to get to you?

No, we had

2:31:432:31:47

a phone call Thursday night to save

the tanker wouldn't get to our

2:31:472:31:54

advantage in the milk so it was down

to us to dispose of the milk

2:31:542:31:58

accordingly due to not having a

capacity to store any more than 5000

2:31:582:32:01

litres, so we had to tip away two

days worth of milk.

And that was

2:32:012:32:07

unavoidable, was it? Nothing else

you can do in those circumstances.

2:32:072:32:11

No, we just don't have the capacity

to store anything more than 5000

2:32:112:32:15

litres on-farm.

OK, so

2:32:152:32:23

litres on-farm.

OK, so looking

forward now, are the tankers able to

2:32:242:32:26

get to you now?

We had a phone call

last night from the dairy to say

2:32:262:32:29

that providing we get no more snow

today, they should be with us

2:32:292:32:31

tonight to collect our milk tonight.

Well presumably that will be quite

2:32:312:32:35

freely for you.

Yes, it will. It has

been very challenging.

Thank you

2:32:352:32:43

very much for joining us. As Mark

was saying, the weather conditions

2:32:432:32:47

pretty grim and he was outdoors, so

just some of the issues being thrown

2:32:472:32:53

up by the weather conditions. A full

weather forecast with Chris coming

2:32:532:32:56

up for you later on.

2:32:562:32:57

The Prime Minister's

speech on Britain leaving

2:32:572:32:59

the European Union has been given

a cautious welcome by both the Leave

2:32:592:33:02

and Remain wings of her party.

2:33:022:33:03

Theresa May set out her

vision of the UK's future

2:33:032:33:06

trading relationship with the EU

and called for concesssions

2:33:062:33:08

on all sides.

2:33:082:33:13

She said she was confident remaining

differences over a draft legal

2:33:132:33:15

agreement could be resolved,

allowing trade talks

2:33:152:33:17

to get under way.

2:33:172:33:18

Two men have been arrested

by police investigating

2:33:182:33:20

an explosion in Leicester that

killed five people.

2:33:202:33:22

The men, both in their 30s

and from East Anglia,

2:33:222:33:24

are being held on suspicion

of conspiracy to cause an explosion.

2:33:242:33:27

Three other men, also in their 30s,

were arrested on suspicion

2:33:272:33:30

of manslaughter on Wednesday

and continue to be

2:33:302:33:31

questioned by detectives.

2:33:312:33:35

The body which sets the rules

for world football is expected

2:33:352:33:37

to approve the use of video replay

technology throughout the sport

2:33:372:33:40

when it meets in Zurich today.

2:33:402:33:42

The system has been used

on a trial basis in several

2:33:422:33:46

countries including some cup

matches in England.

2:33:462:33:49

But there are concerns that it

disrupts the flow of a game

2:33:492:33:52

and confuses officials.

2:33:522:33:58

Mike is here now with this board.

What do you think about the video

2:33:582:34:04

assistant referee thing?

It was a

farce the other night. There have

2:34:042:34:08

been costly decisions in the past

which have been clearly wrong, so it

2:34:082:34:11

should help with that. The other

night was a farce of teething

2:34:112:34:16

problems, but I think it's a

personal thing. It has worked in

2:34:162:34:20

other sports for a long time.

2:34:202:34:25

It's going right to the wire

as England and New Zealand,

2:34:252:34:27

try to take the lead

in the one day series.

2:34:272:34:35

England need two more wickets, New

Zealand needed ten more runs last

2:34:352:34:40

time I looked.

2:34:402:34:45

The Kiwis made a steady

start, as they chase

2:34:472:34:55

that

target of 235 to win.

2:34:572:34:58

But Ben Stokes took a spectacular

catch, off Adil Rashid,

2:34:582:35:01

to start a run of wickets.

2:35:012:35:02

Moeen Ali took two

wickets in three balls -

2:35:022:35:04

New Zealand lost four

for just six runs.

2:35:042:35:06

But Captain Kane Williamson kept

things steady and got

2:35:062:35:08

into the nineties.

2:35:082:35:09

Then a key moment, Williamson gave

a catching chance to Chris Woakes

2:35:092:35:12

who could only get a finger on it

but the ball went on to the stumps

2:35:122:35:16

and ran out the other

batsman, Mitchell Santner.

2:35:162:35:18

So, 220 548 now, so tenderly good

for the -- ten needed off of the

2:35:182:35:25

last over. My eyes are playing up

there. I thought we had another five

2:35:252:35:33

runs. Can you keep an eye on it

while I go and hair.

2:35:332:35:39

I'll keep an eye on it.

2:35:392:35:44

Now after years of disappointment,

Katarina Johnson-Thompson,

2:35:442:35:50

has finally won her first world

title in pentathlon at the world

2:35:502:35:53

indoor championships in Birmingham.

2:35:532:35:58

She's now 25 and last year relocated

to the south of France

2:35:582:36:05

and its done the trick -

victory in the 800 metres, to end

2:36:052:36:08

what she said had been a wobbly,

but in the end, a dominant

2:36:082:36:11

day she set a new personal best,

in the shot putt and came out

2:36:112:36:15

on top in the long jump.

2:36:152:36:16

It comes after she suffered

disappointment, at the world outdoor

2:36:162:36:18

championships in London last summer.

2:36:182:36:20

I can't believe it. To come here and

do this, it is something I dreamt of

2:36:202:36:23

last summer, so it's amazing to come

here and do this. I went through a

2:36:232:36:27

hard year last year at the and of

the wanted my family to see me

2:36:272:36:33

achieve something. It's just

something that I still can't

2:36:332:36:35

believe, really.

2:36:352:36:37

Well that's Britain's second medal

of these championships,

2:36:372:36:39

and there could be more

to come today.

2:36:392:36:43

Laura Muir is looking to follow

up the bronze she won

2:36:432:36:46

in the 3000 metres with another

medal in the 1500 today.

2:36:462:36:48

She qualified for the final

in second place in her heat,

2:36:482:36:51

behind Friday's gold

medallist, Genzebe Dibaba.

2:36:512:36:55

I haven't had a chance to celebrate.

I have been trying to prepare for

2:36:552:37:02

today and the 1500 tomorrow. But I

am so delighted to have a medal in

2:37:022:37:06

my pocket already.

2:37:062:37:07

Great Britain added

another medal on day three

2:37:072:37:09

of the World Track Championship

in Apeldoorn in the Netherlands.

2:37:092:37:12

Mark Stewart won bronze

in the men's points race,

2:37:122:37:14

which is over 160 laps.

2:37:142:37:16

Australia's Cameron Meyer

retained his title with home rider

2:37:162:37:19

Jan Willem van Schip taking silver.

2:37:192:37:22

Britain now have four medals -

one gold, two silvers

2:37:222:37:24

and Stewart's bronze.

2:37:242:37:28

It was a difficult evening

for Britain's Elinor Barker

2:37:282:37:30

as she was caught up in this crash,

during the elimination race,

2:37:302:37:33

in the women's omnium.

2:37:332:37:35

She went into this final event,

which was, the points race,

2:37:352:37:38

in the bronze medal position,

but couldn't manage to hold

2:37:382:37:40

on to it, finishing sixth overall.

2:37:402:37:42

Kirsten Vild took gold

for the Netherlands.

2:37:422:37:47

Super League fixtures have

been hit by the weather,

2:37:472:37:49

but last night's games went ahead.

2:37:492:37:52

Hull FC got their season back on

track by beating Warrington 21-12.

2:37:522:37:56

It was a bad tempered

affair in which both

2:37:562:38:00

sides had a man sent off,

after two red cards.

2:38:002:38:04

Elsewhere Wigan moved up to second,

with a 32-16 win over Widnes.

2:38:042:38:07

Middlesbrough are into

the Championship play-off places,

2:38:072:38:09

after beating Leeds 3-0.

2:38:092:38:11

It was a hat-trick from

striker Patrick Bamford

2:38:112:38:13

that pushed Boro into the top six.

2:38:132:38:16

This game surviving the weather,

but three Championship games today,

2:38:162:38:20

have already been postponed, so do

check before setting off.

2:38:202:38:28

And of course, watch football focus

at lunchtime foreign updatable

2:38:302:38:34

postponements. What a magnificent

plug.

2:38:342:38:44

And as if by magic,

you have a world indoor champion,

2:38:442:38:46

doing Premier League predictions.

2:38:462:38:49

Yes, Katarina Johnson-Thompson is

doing them. It was brilliant to see

2:38:492:38:53

her win a medal. It is with only

three matches in one league, two in

2:38:532:39:04

another, lots of postponed matches,

but we have Virgil van Dyke on the

2:39:042:39:09

programme talking about settling in

at Liverpool. He has been speaking

2:39:092:39:12

about what it means to play at

Liverpool.

Everyday here is tough.

2:39:122:39:16

We worked very hard, we run a lot

and a big difference of what been

2:39:162:39:22

used to, so I need to step up my

game. I think now it is getting

2:39:222:39:32

better every day and I'm used to

everything has well, the way we

2:39:322:39:36

play, the intensity of our game,

because that is a lot higher than I

2:39:362:39:40

was used to.

So they take on

Newcastle this weekend and like

2:39:402:39:45

everyone else, they are chasing

Manchester City. They have Leroy

2:39:452:39:49

Sammy on this week and was man of

the match against Arsenal this week

2:39:492:39:56

and Arsenal are now closer to west

Bromwich the bottom of the table

2:39:562:40:00

than they are the Manchester City at

the top, so we will be speaking to

2:40:002:40:06

Martin Keown about where Arsenal go

from here. I've got a nice picture

2:40:062:40:10

of Phil Neville as well after the

Englishwomen beat France for the

2:40:102:40:16

first time in 44 years. And Tony

Mowbray let his players train inside

2:40:162:40:23

this week it has been so cold. We

have Ryan Mason on the programme,

2:40:232:40:28

debut for him. He retired earlier

this year after fracturing his skull

2:40:282:40:35

at 26. He will be on along with

Danny Murphy and Martin Thiam.

2:40:352:40:39

Google widget falling for used

fantastic, a power hour.

2:40:392:40:47

fantastic, a power hour.

--

fantastic, it will be a power hour.

2:40:512:40:53

And I can tell you that England have

wrapped up a victory against New

2:40:532:40:58

Zealand.

Is that why you were paying

no attention to me?

I feel it made

2:40:582:41:04

sense.

Every now and then I looked

across the sea of Mike was paying

2:41:042:41:10

attention, and he was like that...

At least he had a decent excuse this

2:41:102:41:16

time.

2:41:162:41:21

time. Dan, you like your squash,

don't you? Let me party this ball.

2:41:222:41:26

Oh, almost.

2:41:262:41:29

Now if you're looking

for a new sport to warm you up

2:41:292:41:32

during the cold weather,

then all you'll need is a ball,

2:41:322:41:35

a wall and your bare hands.

2:41:352:41:36

It's the sport that is based

on a playground game,

2:41:362:41:39

but it's now been formalised

and ahead of the UK championships,

2:41:392:41:41

I went to try wallball

in west London.

2:41:412:41:47

It's the sport that started in the

playground when we were kids and now

2:41:502:41:54

they are trying to take it back

there again now that it's officially

2:41:542:41:57

known as wallball, because the

beauty is its simplicity. All you

2:41:572:42:00

need is a ball and a wall.

Similar

to squash but even easier because

2:42:002:42:07

all it's got to do is hit the wall

and land in the court and a rally

2:42:072:42:13

continues until somebody misses the

ball. It has been going on for

2:42:132:42:16

hundreds of years all over the wall.

In New York, there are hundreds of

2:42:162:42:20

courts free to use everyday.

That's

what we want to do here. It has

2:42:202:42:25

derived from the game fives which

was derived from public schools

2:42:252:42:29

centuries ago but in size you need

more walls. This means it was more

2:42:292:42:38

difficult to play but this can be

played anywhere by people of any age

2:42:382:42:42

and ability.

You go like this and go

plan.

It feels really good. It has

2:42:422:42:50

got me running around. Hopefully I

will lose my porch.

The ball is

2:42:502:42:54

bouncy if you hit it too hard. You

don't want to hit it with too much

2:42:542:42:58

power but a little bit of power.

It's like playing tennis or squash

2:42:582:43:02

but without a racket, just your

hand. So anyone could try it and I

2:43:022:43:08

think it would do them the world of

good.

2:43:082:43:17

good.

The majority of people, this

is really simple for them. Right,

2:43:172:43:23

left coordination. If you are

thinking about stroke

2:43:232:43:27

rehabilitation, the Right left side

is so important. For kids

2:43:272:43:31

development and adults getting

active, they are simple, safe

2:43:312:43:34

movements which are very easy to do.

Which is why UK wallball hope to

2:43:342:43:41

spread this to other cities around

the UK and the British team will

2:43:412:43:44

compete in the World Cup in the US

later this year. The men's team R&B

2:43:442:43:49

top five. At a top-level, like when

you play with the great British

2:43:492:43:53

squad, you can wear gloves, so I

have opted for that. At

2:43:532:43:57

international level, you get a

insight into the speed and power and

2:43:572:44:05

also tactics that you don't see at

other levels. I didn't even see it.

2:44:052:44:09

That was a tactical blocking where

he was standing in front so I didn't

2:44:092:44:13

see it until it was too late.

Unlike

squash and other sports, you can be

2:44:132:44:17

an obstacle on court. He is allowed

to be there. The baulk are going

2:44:172:44:22

between his legs and you have to

play it.

Whether you are being

2:44:222:44:27

blocked or not, you can was be

deceived by the bounce. -- you can

2:44:272:44:34

always be deceived by the bounce. So

it definitely gives you a good run

2:44:342:44:38

around and you can see where it is

good exercise especially for those

2:44:382:44:41

may be with joint problems in the

way you move around.

2:44:412:44:45

And a minimal amount of kit

required.

2:44:452:44:48

And fuss. Easy to pick up.

2:44:482:44:51

Bank account holders conned

into transferring money

2:44:512:44:53

to fraudsters could be compensated

under new rules.

2:44:532:44:55

£100 million was lost in so-called

'push payment scams'

2:44:552:44:57

in the first six months of last year

but banks say it's not

2:44:572:45:00

their fault and in some cases

are reluctant to reimburse.

2:45:002:45:03

Let's find out more now

with Paul Lewis from

2:45:032:45:05

Radio Four's Money Box programme.

2:45:052:45:07

Good morning to you, Paul. Is this

good news then it sounds like for

2:45:072:45:14

people who were getting scammed?

Well, it's potentially good news. We

2:45:142:45:18

need to see the details but the

payment Systems regulator seems very

2:45:182:45:21

determined that banks are going to

have to accept more responsibility

2:45:212:45:25

for these scams. They are very

clever. They are done by very clever

2:45:252:45:29

professional con men and women. They

bring you up, they tell you that

2:45:292:45:33

your bank account is at risk and

you've -- and they are from your

2:45:332:45:38

bank or broadband provider or

whoever and they persuade you to

2:45:382:45:42

give a little bit of information and

that eventually enables them to take

2:45:422:45:46

money out of your bank account.

Because you have taken part in it

2:45:462:45:50

though the bank says you were partly

responsible, even though these were

2:45:502:45:53

clever crooks who fall due. But that

should change with this new code of

2:45:532:45:58

practice.

What would you have to do

then? If you think you have been

2:45:582:46:02

scammed, what are the steps after

that?

The new thing is, when this

2:46:022:46:07

begins in six months' time, the

banks will have to show they took

2:46:072:46:11

every possible step to make sure

this couldn't happen. At the moment,

2:46:112:46:15

there are many thieves who are

allowed to open bank accounts

2:46:152:46:18

because the checks aren't strong

enough. Then the money is moved to

2:46:182:46:21

that account and moved abroad. The

banks aren't quick enough, they

2:46:212:46:26

don't cooperate well enough to stop

it happening. If the banks cannot

2:46:262:46:29

show they have done all they could,

then they will have to compensate.

2:46:292:46:33

Of course individuals have to take

care and my rule is very simple. If

2:46:332:46:37

somebody brings you out of the blue

about your bank account, but the

2:46:372:46:40

phone down because the chances are

99 times out of 100, it is a thief

2:46:402:46:46

doing that. But not everyone does

that and once you start engaging

2:46:462:46:50

with the clever script they have two

con you into giving them little bit

2:46:502:46:55

of apparently innocent information,

they will drain your money away.

It

2:46:552:46:58

is easy for us to say we would never

fall for a scam like that, but

2:46:582:47:02

especially when they are targeting

vulnerable people, it is even

2:47:022:47:07

harder, so for them, this is really

important.

It is, that's true.

2:47:072:47:11

Though I have to say many of the

people we have dealt with, a man we

2:47:112:47:15

had on a few weeks ago, he had £3

million taken out of his business

2:47:152:47:21

bank account and he wasn't a

vulnerable man. He was a

2:47:212:47:26

businessman. So they are not

necessarily vulnerable people. They

2:47:262:47:31

are often busy people are not

expecting it. They think, it must be

2:47:312:47:35

right because it is coming from the

bank or BT or the broadband provider

2:47:352:47:40

or whomever. These are good at

coming you into it and people

2:47:402:47:44

shouldn't be ashamed if it has

happened to them and I know many

2:47:442:47:50

people listening for thinking it

would never happen to them but I

2:47:502:47:53

have heard the tapes, trust me,

these people are very, very

2:47:532:47:57

convincing. If you hear a call like

that, put the phone down. It could

2:47:572:48:01

save you a lot of money.

Very good

advice. Thank you very much, Paul.

2:48:012:48:09

Let's show you a glimpse of what it

is looking like around the country.

2:48:092:48:14

This is Alec in Northumberland.

2:48:142:48:20

This is Alec in Northumberland. The

road looks free of traffic there. We

2:48:202:48:25

are being told this morning that the

police are sometimes leading a

2:48:252:48:28

convoy, essentially, so a group of

vehicles are going together, but

2:48:282:48:35

essentially very little movement on

the roads and very hard hit by the

2:48:352:48:41

weather. Worries about flooding now

in the south as well.

2:48:412:48:45

It looks eerily quiet, doesn't it?

Let's get a full picture of what is

2:48:452:48:49

happening with the weather across

the UK? It looks lovely behind you,

2:48:492:48:53

too.

2:48:532:48:54

It looks lovely behind you, too.

2:48:542:48:57

Yes, it is a beautiful picture,

isn't it. We have seen some fresh

2:48:592:49:04

snowfall in the south of Wales.

Saint Athan is near to Cardiff and

2:49:042:49:08

that is why commuters are struggling

still to get out and about. There

2:49:082:49:12

was a lot of snow still on the

ground. There is the risk of a bit

2:49:122:49:17

more snow to

2:49:172:49:25

more snow to come but nothing like

we have seen the last few days. This

2:49:252:49:29

slightly less cold air is drifting

up from the south. That will bring a

2:49:292:49:34

change to the south of England as we

go through this afternoon. A lot of

2:49:342:49:38

cloud around and a weather front

tripping its way northwards,

2:49:382:49:40

bringing a band of snow across

northern

2:49:402:49:47

northern England and it's not just

snow. We are seeing something called

2:49:472:49:50

freezing rain. Liquid ring with a

temperature below zero. As soon as

2:49:502:49:54

it touches a surface, it freezes

immediately. These pictures were

2:49:542:49:59

sent from Devon yesterday. That is

also a picture of freezing rain.

2:49:592:50:04

Nearby where these pictures were

sent to us, there was a ten car

2:50:042:50:09

pile-up on the a 38, so that is what

I'm talking about. Black ice, very

2:50:092:50:13

dangerous conditions out on the

road. We have some of this freezing

2:50:132:50:17

rain across Scotland and parts of

northern England at the moment. So

2:50:172:50:20

watch out on the roads and

pavements. Things could get nasty. A

2:50:202:50:24

bit more snow to come across

northern areas. Should be dry once

2:50:242:50:29

we get rid of the early morning rain

in the South. They are arriving a

2:50:292:50:33

bit quicker than scheduled, and

turning wet on the Isle of Wight for

2:50:332:50:37

a time this morning. Overnight

tonight, we will see those showers

2:50:372:50:43

continue to drift northwards across

England and Wales, and with

2:50:432:50:47

temperatures taking a dive once

again, there will be icy patches

2:50:472:50:54

again with icy stretches taking us

into Sunday morning. Sunday is a day

2:50:542:50:59

of bright baths and showers,

probably a little bit more sunshine

2:50:592:51:01

breaking through the clouds, with

the odd heavy shower at times but

2:51:012:51:08

turning milder across the southern

half of the country. Up to 9

2:51:082:51:15

degrees. Further north, a bit of

snow and sleet mixed together with

2:51:152:51:20

the rain, and saying quite cold

there. That really is the theme for

2:51:202:51:25

the weather of the next few days.

The thaw slowly setting in place.

2:51:252:51:29

The worst of the weather behind us.

Still cold in northern areas. We are

2:51:292:51:34

likely to see some further episodes

of snow and particularly across the

2:51:342:51:38

high ground in Scotland. But for

most of us, the severe weather

2:51:382:51:41

conditions are easing. That is how

the weekend is shaping up.

2:51:412:51:45

Chris, thank you very much. Tomorrow

night, the film industry will

2:51:502:51:58

celebrate the Oscars.

The downfall of Harvey Wallenstein

2:51:582:52:06

exposed -- the downfall of Harvey

Wednesday exposed a culture of

2:52:062:52:14

sexual harassment.

2:52:142:52:20

He is not here and yet he is

everywhere.

2:52:202:52:32

everywhere. Harvey Weinstein's image

is everywhere.

2:52:322:52:44

is everywhere. Harvey Weinstein has

denied allegations of

2:52:442:52:47

non-transsexual sex and that he

blacklisted women who spurned his

2:52:472:52:50

advances. The actress Heather Graham

has made a film inspired by her own

2:52:502:52:54

experiences of sexism in Hollywood.

Let's just go and have sex in my

2:52:542:52:59

office.

No.

And she has her own

Harvey Weinstein story.

He called me

2:52:592:53:09

into his office and he had a whole

pile of scripts and

2:53:092:53:18

pile of scripts and said I should

choose a script, I was a good

2:53:182:53:21

actress and I could choose anything

he wanted to work with me. Then he

2:53:212:53:25

said, my wife and I have an

arrangement I can have sex with

2:53:252:53:28

anyone I want out of the town. Long

story short, I didn't and I never

2:53:282:53:36

worked with him.

These women meet

once a month to discuss the

2:53:362:53:46

situation. They all work in film.

And they are right to be cautious

2:53:462:53:51

because the figures speak for

themselves. Of the 100 most popular

2:53:512:53:57

films here last year, only eight

were directed by women. Greta Gur

2:53:572:54:02

wig might be up for best picture

Oscar with her coming-of-age film

2:54:022:54:10

ladybird, but she is only the fifth

woman in the academy's 90 year

2:54:102:54:14

history to be nominated in the

category and for her work on the

2:54:142:54:19

drama blood bound, Rachel Morrison

is the first woman ever to be

2:54:192:54:22

nominated for Best cinematography. A

former Oscar winner is under no

2:54:222:54:26

illusion that change will be swift.

When I first started work on film,

2:54:262:54:32

it was 99.9% male. Now it's 75%

male. We still have a long way to

2:54:322:54:39

go.

Meet two women determined to

make a difference. They formed a

2:54:392:54:45

company committed to producing more

diverse films with more women behind

2:54:452:54:49

and in front of the camera.

The

majority of the audience is female

2:54:492:54:53

and the majority of material is male

oriented and that distance just does

2:54:532:54:59

not make sense.

The whole movement

towards including more voices and

2:54:592:55:07

more diverse storytelling, it just

also makes business sense.

Different

2:55:072:55:11

perspectives, different angles. They

may be the way ahead for Hollywood.

2:55:112:55:16

Rebecca Jones, BBC News, Los

Angeles.

2:55:162:55:22

Angeles. We are going to take you to

a complete change of atmosphere now.

2:55:242:55:29

It was a breath-taking find: a huge

colony of penguins thriving

2:55:292:55:32

in the ice-capped beauty of one

of the the world's

2:55:322:55:34

great wildernesses.

2:55:342:55:35

But the roots

of the discovery were

2:55:352:55:37

rather less poetic.

2:55:372:55:38

A huge cluster of Penguin droppings.

2:55:382:55:39

Will Batchelor explains.

2:55:392:55:45

Where there is muck, there's brass.

Or in this case, one and a half

2:55:452:55:49

million penguins. A huge colony of

Adelie penguins was undiscovered

2:55:492:56:00

until huge patches of their guano or

Penguin droppings showed up on

2:56:002:56:05

satellites in space. The birds live

in the north of Antarctica, an area

2:56:052:56:09

with very little human activity,

which scientists believe has helped

2:56:092:56:13

them to thrive. They say penguins

thrive better in undisturbed

2:56:132:56:17

environment and that these islands

should become a marine protected

2:56:172:56:21

area. Will Batchelor, BBC News.

Let's find out a little bit more.

2:56:212:56:28

Tom Hart

2:56:282:56:34

Tom Hart is a penguinologist, and

that is the real thing. Tell us more

2:56:362:56:39

about this discovery.

The important

thing is that there are a lot of

2:56:392:56:43

penguins there and as we go back

through time in older satellite

2:56:432:56:47

imagery, we actually find that it's

relatively stable over at least 40

2:56:472:56:52

to 50 years. That's the significance

of it. It's interesting because in

2:56:522:56:56

places we never looked before, but

in terms of the environment and the

2:56:562:57:03

climate are relatively stable, they

are doing well, so it contrasts with

2:57:032:57:07

what we are seeing elsewhere. So I

think that's the importance of it.

2:57:072:57:10

Not only is it a great find and it's

quite exciting for us, but it

2:57:102:57:14

actually shines a light on a

contrast of what is going on

2:57:142:57:19

elsewhere.

So, Tom, now we know they

are there and the discovery has been

2:57:192:57:23

made, what do we do?

There is

discussion of a marine protected

2:57:232:57:29

area there and this comes in time to

inform that. I would like to see the

2:57:292:57:34

protection. I don't think they are

that threatens their yet but this

2:57:342:57:38

would be pre-emptive. It would seem

silly not to given there is already

2:57:382:57:43

discussion over protection in that

region.

Can I ask you, Tom, about

2:57:432:57:48

some of the detail around the

discovery? You are able to put a

2:57:482:57:51

number on how many there are. How do

you possibly know how many penguins

2:57:512:57:56

there are? How is that counting

process done?

The original discovery

2:57:562:58:05

was made by satellite imagery.

Colleagues in the US went through

2:58:052:58:08

satellite imagery. We had an idea

that there might be colony is fair

2:58:082:58:11

because the environment fitted

Adelie penguins but they found that

2:58:112:58:17

fire satellite and quantified it in

the region of roughly 300,000 pairs

2:58:172:58:23

or 600,000 penguins but because it's

from space, that's not very

2:58:232:58:27

accurate. So we went there, but

beats on the ground, we've blew

2:58:272:58:31

drones over them, we counted by

hand, so we are confident because we

2:58:312:58:38

counted everyone. There is still

over there but we counted every

2:58:382:58:41

Penguin we could see.

It is stating

the obvious, Tom, but how do you

2:58:412:58:45

know one Penguin from another?

Well,

that is where the drones come in.

2:58:452:58:51

When you are taking snapshots, you

have a snapshot composite of the

2:58:512:58:54

whole colony. A Penguin cannot be

into different places at the same

2:58:542:59:00

time. That is the only way that I

can tell the difference them.

And

2:59:002:59:06

clearly we have an affection for

penguins, don't we? There is a

2:59:062:59:10

particular affection with penguins

and I think I am right in saying

2:59:102:59:13

what we being taught how to walk in

the Snow by mimicking penguins

2:59:132:59:16

because of the bad weather recently?

Yes, and I think that's very

2:59:162:59:20

practical. They do have claws on

their feet but they walk slowly and

2:59:202:59:27

steadily and that's quite a good way

to walk in the snow. It's a little

2:59:272:59:32

bit more how we walked when we were

down in Antarctica.

Tom, lovely to

2:59:322:59:37

speak to you this morning. Thank you

very much indeed for your time.

2:59:372:59:42

Have you been walking around like a

penguin?

2:59:422:59:45

To a degree. I haven't been

comparing myself directly, but

2:59:452:59:49

similar probably. Stay with us.

Headlines are coming up.

2:59:492:59:57

Hello this is Breakfast,

with Tina Daheley and Charlie Stayt.

3:00:213:00:24

Weather warnings for snow and icy

roads remain in place

3:00:243:00:28

across much of the UK,

causing further disruption.

3:00:283:00:36

This is the thing in Northumberland

were the A1 has just reopened.

3:00:363:00:42

Motorists are still being warned to

take care. And there is an amber

3:00:423:00:48

weather warning still in place in

Wales. The scenes were filmed in

3:00:483:00:53

Dawlish with a rail line has been

closed for a second time in 24

3:00:533:00:56

hours.

3:00:563:01:06

Good morning it's

Saturday 3rd March.

3:01:093:01:11

Also this morning:

3:01:113:01:13

Facing up to "some hard facts" -

3:01:133:01:17

the Prime Minister says neither side

will get everything they want

3:01:173:01:20

from Brexit, but argues

the UK and EU are close

3:01:203:01:22

to a deal on transition.

3:01:223:01:24

The children with special education

needs forced to travel more

3:01:243:01:26

than 40 miles to school.

3:01:263:01:28

In sport:

3:01:283:01:32

England have beaten New Zealand in

the third ODI. The Kiwi captain

3:01:323:01:37

could not cap his century with

winning runs, so England now lead

3:01:373:01:41

the series 2-1.

3:01:413:01:46

the series 2-1. We'll be looking at

some of the problems facing people

3:01:513:01:55

who have children with learning

disabilities and some of the

3:01:553:01:58

logistical problems they have to

face. And Chris will give us a full

3:01:583:02:03

update on the weather. We are

looking at a cold and frosty start

3:02:033:02:08

with a big risk of ice around, so

take it easy on the roads. More snow

3:02:083:02:13

to come today across northern areas

but not as heavy as in recent days

3:02:133:02:16

and it will start to turn less cold

from the south-west through the

3:02:163:02:20

weekend. More details later.

3:02:203:02:23

Good morning.

3:02:233:02:24

First, our main story.

3:02:243:02:26

Weather warnings for snow

and ice remain in place

3:02:263:02:28

across much of the UK -

that's despite temperatures

3:02:283:02:31

being expected to gradually

rise in many areas.

3:02:313:02:34

2,000 homes are without

power and motorists

3:02:343:02:37

and rail passengers face further

disruption on the road

3:02:373:02:39

and rail network.

3:02:393:02:42

In the last hour the rail line

at Dawlish has been closed

3:02:423:02:45

again due to flooding

because of high tides.

3:02:453:02:47

Network rail say it is currently

unsafe to go on the site

3:02:473:02:50

as Simon Clemison now reports.

3:02:503:02:51

After the big freeze, the big thaw.

3:02:513:02:53

Temperatures in Wales could reach

as high as seven in some parts.

3:02:533:02:57

But problems for

the public transport

3:02:573:02:58

sector continue after what has

been a difficult night.

3:02:583:03:04

The moment some rail

passengers dispensed with the

3:03:043:03:05

train.

3:03:053:03:12

Just been stuck on the train for two

and a half hours. Luckily we can now

3:03:133:03:17

walk down the tracks. As you can see

everyone is getting out. The train

3:03:173:03:23

was the illusion station.

The

operator has warned people against

3:03:233:03:27

walking onto the line and said it

cost further delays.

Looking forward

3:03:273:03:33

to getting home and having a nice

cup of tea.

But did you know that

3:03:333:03:37

this was also in the forecast? There

are 15 flood warnings in place

3:03:373:03:41

today, many in the south-west coast,

where the railway is still being

3:03:413:03:45

buffeted by the waves this morning.

Met Office continues to warn of snow

3:03:453:03:49

in much of Scotland and ice in many

areas of England, Wales and Northern

3:03:493:03:54

Ireland, nicking for tricky

conditions on untreated roads.

3:03:543:03:57

In Devon, hospitals have been

treating the injured.

3:03:573:04:01

There have been appeals

to owners of four by

3:04:013:04:05

four vehicles to help

patients and staff.

3:04:053:04:10

Work has continued

overnight at one hospital.

3:04:103:04:15

I have been coordinating a lot of

the four by four transport over the

3:04:153:04:20

last few days. I want to send a

massive thank you to all the

3:04:203:04:22

volunteers we have had. We could not

have coped without you guys, you

3:04:223:04:25

have been amazing.

All eyes will be

on the transport network again

3:04:253:04:30

today. Heathrow hopes to run the

nearly full schedule, but many rail

3:04:303:04:35

services remain disrupted.

3:04:353:04:39

Let's find out what the

situation is like in

3:04:393:04:41

the North East of England this

morning - our reporter,

3:04:413:04:43

Alison Freeman is in Alnwick.

3:04:433:04:47

It looks like the road behind you

has reopened?

That's right, we found

3:04:473:04:53

out in the past 20 minutes that the

A1 is now open. When you bear in

3:04:533:04:57

mind this is the main route in the

north-east of England to Scotland,

3:04:573:05:01

it still is very quiet indeed. It

would be busy with lorries normally

3:05:013:05:06

this time on a Saturday morning. The

problem they have been facing is

3:05:063:05:10

that as fast as they were clearing

the road, despite it not snowing as

3:05:103:05:14

much, snow was being blown in from

surrounding fields, and at some

3:05:143:05:17

point they could only get one

carriageway open for short spaces of

3:05:173:05:20

time. But this has now reopened. The

other problems interfacing is people

3:05:203:05:27

avoiding the A1, driving off country

lanes and getting stuck in the snow.

3:05:273:05:31

Modern rescue have been rescuing

people, bringing them back to

3:05:313:05:34

safety. So a bit of good news for

people this morning, but we are

3:05:343:05:39

still being warned to take care on

the roads. It is freezing here,

3:05:393:05:43

there is ice on the roads, we have

seen people skidding about. There

3:05:433:05:47

are also concerns of flooding on the

coast. There are flood warnings in

3:05:473:05:51

place from Sunderland up to Whitley

Bay, and that is to do with spring

3:05:513:05:55

tides and strong winds. Good news

for people in the A1, the A66

3:05:553:06:03

staying closed, so people are still

being warned to take care.

3:06:033:06:09

Our reporter, Tomos

Morgan is in Cardiff -

3:06:093:06:11

what's the situation this morning?

3:06:113:06:17

There have been a few vehicles

passing by you there, but not many.

3:06:173:06:21

Not many at all. This main road

through the high street of Llandaff

3:06:213:06:28

North in the centre of Cardiff seems

to be getting better. Just to the

3:06:283:06:33

right of me there, the residential

road, and that's what many of the

3:06:333:06:38

roads in Cardiff are still like,

when I was working here this morning

3:06:383:06:44

many are impassable just like this

one. That has been the case in the

3:06:443:06:48

past few days here, Wales has come

to a standstill as transport has

3:06:483:06:52

been affected heavily by these

wintry conditions. The real service

3:06:523:06:58

suspended in the majority of

circumstances are across Wales

3:06:583:07:01

yesterday, Cardiff airport closed as

well. And the road affected as well.

3:07:013:07:07

We hear reports that around 400

homes in North Wales are without

3:07:073:07:11

power at the moment, ScottishPower

are doing their best to help those

3:07:113:07:16

that have been affected. And South

Wales Fire Service are saying there

3:07:163:07:22

are many burst pipes from the cold

weather. The weather warning remains

3:07:223:07:27

in place, risk of ice across the

whole of Wales, and that will remain

3:07:273:07:32

in place until 11 o'clock this

morning.

3:07:323:07:41

Thanks Thomas, and a full weather

forecast coming up shortly.

3:07:413:07:45

The Prime Minister's

speech on Britain leaving

3:07:453:07:47

the European Union has been given

a cautious welcome by both the Leave

3:07:473:07:50

and Remain wings of her own party.

3:07:503:07:51

Theresa May set out her

vision of the UK's future

3:07:513:07:54

trading relationship with the EU

and said all sides would have

3:07:543:07:56

to make concessions.

3:07:563:07:57

Our political

correspondent Tom Barton

3:07:573:07:59

is in the London newsroom.

3:07:593:08:06

Broadly speaking would we say she is

giving people

3:08:073:08:08

happy?

3:08:083:08:15

Yesterday was a big moment, the

third of three major speeches,

3:08:153:08:19

setting out her vision for Britain's

relationship with Europe. That

3:08:193:08:23

vision was a clean break with the

institutions of the customs union

3:08:233:08:28

and the single market, but beyond

that the closest possible

3:08:283:08:31

relationship with the EU in the

future. It is not yet clear whether

3:08:313:08:34

EU leaders will get on board with

that vision, but her party certainly

3:08:343:08:41

at this early stage giving a pretty

positive response,

3:08:413:08:49

positive response, both the

pro-remain and prove leave MPs

3:08:493:08:51

giving a cautious welcome to the

speech. It has certainly... The

3:08:513:08:59

Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt has

been talking about this, saying that

3:08:593:09:02

he did not think yesterday morning

that the Prime Minister would be

3:09:023:09:06

able to deliver a speech with some

substantial content that received

3:09:063:09:09

such a positive welcome from both

sides of the Brexit divide.

3:09:093:09:15

Two men have been arrested

by police investigating

3:09:153:09:18

an explosion in Leicester that

killed five people.

3:09:183:09:20

The men, both in their 30s,

and from East Anglia,

3:09:203:09:23

are being held on suspicion

of conspiracy to cause an explosion.

3:09:233:09:27

Three other men, also in their 30s,

were arrested on suspicion

3:09:273:09:32

of manslaughter on Wednesday,

and continue to be

3:09:323:09:34

questioned by detectives.

3:09:343:09:35

The body which sets the rules

for world football is expected

3:09:353:09:38

to approve the use of video replay

technology throughout the sport

3:09:383:09:41

when it meets in Zurich today.

3:09:413:09:45

The system has been used

on a trial basis in several

3:09:453:09:49

countries, including some

cup matches in England.

3:09:493:09:52

But there are concerns that it

disrupts the flow of a game

3:09:523:09:58

while confusing some officials.

3:09:583:10:04

People who are obese or who smoke

should not be refused

3:10:043:10:06

or delayed from having surgery

by local health authorities -

3:10:063:10:09

that's according to the Academy

of Medical Royal Colleges.

3:10:093:10:11

The body, which represents 24

medical colleges and health

3:10:113:10:13

faculties, said rationing surgery

based on patients' lifestyles

3:10:133:10:15

would "widen inequalities

in access to healthcare".

3:10:153:10:23

Gary Allman has talked of his

excitement at the possibility of

3:10:243:10:27

landing his first Academy Awards. He

is tipped to win best actor prize

3:10:273:10:31

role as Winston Churchill in the

film Darkest Hour. Speaking ahead of

3:10:313:10:36

the Oscars ceremony in LA, he said

it was an honour to play the former

3:10:363:10:39

Prime Minister.

3:10:393:10:40

I am feeling, I'm feeling

very good about it.

3:10:403:10:44

Sunday will be, these things

will be what they will be,

3:10:443:10:50

either they call

your name or they don't.

3:10:503:10:55

But the ride has been enjoyable,

3:10:553:10:57

and to be recognised

for playing Winston

3:10:573:11:00

is...

3:11:003:11:02

The prize in itself.

3:11:023:11:10

That is goodbye to a main story,

that is weather conditions still

3:11:123:11:15

causing a lot of problems. We can

show you the live camera here from

3:11:153:11:19

Dawlish. You're probably aware that

sometimes the realigned and there

3:11:193:11:26

was closed because of flooding, that

is the issue this morning because of

3:11:263:11:31

very high tide flooding the railway

line, dramatic images, those. It

3:11:313:11:35

does happen periodically, but we

know that snow and ice elsewhere,

3:11:353:11:38

freezing rain, one of the things

predicted today, but in amongst that

3:11:383:11:44

these high tides causing some

problems in the south-west and in

3:11:443:11:47

the North of England. Network Rail

said they are retesting the line to

3:11:473:11:55

see when it can reopen, but looking

at those pictures don't think it

3:11:553:11:59

will be any time soon.

3:11:593:12:01

Simon Calder, travel editor

of The Independent, has

3:12:013:12:03

been tracking trains,

planes and automobiles

3:12:033:12:05

and is in our London

newsroom this morning.

3:12:053:12:08

It's been a difficult period for

transport, and this is the unusual

3:12:083:12:12

part, it is all over the UK.

It

certainly is. And if I can bring you

3:12:123:12:19

some Dawlish news, Network Rail West

have just tweeted a picture of a

3:12:193:12:22

route proofing train that has just

run through Dawlish. It does not

3:12:223:12:25

look too bad, and indeed there is a

train waiting at platform six in

3:12:253:12:31

Exeter, it hopes heading off soon to

Torquay via that route, and

3:12:313:12:35

hopefully great Western services

will be put back together. Dawlish

3:12:353:12:40

is a station that was closed for two

months because of storm damage

3:12:403:12:45

previously, and there have been lots

of calls for the route across the

3:12:453:12:48

centre of Devon to be reopened so

that Cornwall and Devon don't get

3:12:483:12:51

caught off again. Huge problems on

the railways elsewhere, nothing

3:12:513:12:55

running in Dorset as far as I can

see. Arriva trains says do not

3:12:553:13:00

travel anywhere in the southern part

of the country if you can avoid it.

3:13:003:13:03

The line from Worcester to Oxford is

close, Greater Anglia, all the usual

3:13:033:13:08

brand Swainston shrugged it,

Skegness cut-off for five days by

3:13:083:13:13

rail, would you believe.

Trans-Pennine trains are not

3:13:133:13:17

running, that is the trains across

the Pennines, and still no sign of

3:13:173:13:22

trains running between England and

Scotland. The West Coast and East

3:13:223:13:27

Coast lines have been cut for days.

In Scotland, ScotRail has its best

3:13:273:13:32

day for several days, but still

hundreds of cancellations if you are

3:13:323:13:36

travelling anywhere in the UK by

rail do check in advance.

Just as

3:13:363:13:41

you say that, there are pictures of

Dawlish, we did see a train passing

3:13:413:13:46

through, despite the conditions, so

it's right what you're saying. While

3:13:463:13:52

people are struggling with the

problems on their doorstep in terms

3:13:523:13:54

of snow and whatever, what about

airports?

Let's go from north to

3:13:543:14:00

south this time. Scottish airports

still having problems, Edinburgh,

3:14:003:14:03

the busiest in Scotland, has lots of

cancellations today, was cool also

3:14:033:14:09

having a few problems, most of those

residual, and flights to double in

3:14:093:14:14

which only opened this morning after

about 36 hours of closure, and there

3:14:143:14:20

are still thousands of people

stranded on the rocks I'd of the

3:14:203:14:24

Irish Sea, trying to get back.

Elsewhere it is most of the southern

3:14:243:14:29

half, Birmingham has been having

huge problems, lots of

3:14:293:14:32

cancellations. A flight in the early

hours came in from Barbados, that

3:14:323:14:36

was diverted Manchester. Manchester

itself, the outbound flight to go

3:14:363:14:42

was cancelled. Lots of people

enjoying extra holidays in India.

3:14:423:14:49

And a lot of cancellations on

easyJet. Not as many as yesterday

3:14:493:14:53

where they cancelled over 300

flights to and from the UK. 66

3:14:533:14:58

cancelled today, about half of those

from Bristol. Cardiff airport

3:14:583:15:02

closed, Exeter closed all day,

Southampton looking dodgy as well.

3:15:023:15:06

Elsewhere, if you delay is only a

few hours then count yourself lucky.

3:15:063:15:13

And you've probably seen those

pictures of train passengers who got

3:15:133:15:17

very frustrated, they were so close

to the station, the cupboard doors

3:15:173:15:20

open, climbed onto the rail lines.

People understand that frustration,

3:15:203:15:26

but you must be so careful.

Unspeakably dangerous. Part of the

3:15:263:15:32

problems we have seen in the

south-east of England have been to

3:15:323:15:34

do with the third rail, this rather

Victorian system powers the trains,

3:15:343:15:40

but the third rail is full of

high-voltage electricity, and nobody

3:15:403:15:42

should ever stray onto the lines

unless they have been told to do so

3:15:423:15:47

by a member of Network Rail or the

train crew. Just unbelievably risky,

3:15:473:15:55

and as we saw, the first thing that

has to happen is that the power is

3:15:553:15:58

switched off completely, which means

utter disarray for hours. And we saw

3:15:583:16:03

miserable scenes at all the big

London commuter stations last night

3:16:033:16:07

anyway, and South Western Railway

out of Waterloo, the busiest station

3:16:073:16:12

in Waterloo, closing down early to

avoid the scenes we saw overnight in

3:16:123:16:15

the early hours of yesterday morning

with trains stranded and people

3:16:153:16:18

having to sleep in the luggage rack.

Talking of overnight sleepers, we

3:16:183:16:22

have not seen those on the

Caledonian sleeper lines from

3:16:223:16:26

Scotland to London for a few days.

They might be back tomorrow night.

3:16:263:16:30

Thanks, Simon, travel editor of the

Independent. That averages are

3:16:303:16:37

creeping up, but still lots of

disruption. That's fine that exact

3:16:373:16:40

what's happening with Chris.

3:16:403:16:43

disruption. That's fine that exact

what's happening with Chris.

3:16:433:16:47

Yes, over the worst, but the still

could be problems around today as

3:16:473:16:50

I'll explain. Further snowfall

topping up what has been an

3:16:503:16:53

incredible fall of snow.

3:16:533:16:59

incredible fall of snow. Communities

in Wales particularly really

3:17:003:17:04

struggling to get out and about with

all that snow. More snow to come

3:17:043:17:07

across northern areas but the risk

of less cold air and milder

3:17:073:17:11

conditions coming up from the south.

Cold air comes in from the new

3:17:113:17:16

continent, but we have less cold air

creeping towards Southern counties

3:17:163:17:20

of England. The satellite pictures

show most areas having a cloudy

3:17:203:17:26

start, and this weather front

continues to bring a bit of snow.

3:17:263:17:29

Not particularly heavy but pushing

northwards, getting into Scotland

3:17:293:17:33

with showers across eastern

Scotland. For eastern Scotland and

3:17:333:17:38

north-east England, as well as the

snow we have freezing rain right

3:17:383:17:41

now, which is liquid rain with a

temperature below zero, it freezes

3:17:413:17:43

as soon as it hits the surface. Just

down the road from where these

3:17:433:17:53

photos were taken we had a ten car

multi-vehicle pile-up on the A38 and

3:17:533:17:59

problems in the M20. Likely to have

been caused by freezing rain. We

3:17:593:18:04

have freezing rain right now across

eastern Scotland. It will turn

3:18:043:18:11

roadster black eyes and pigment

slippery as well. Tricky to be

3:18:113:18:14

heading out this morning. We have

snow showers working at Northern

3:18:143:18:19

areas. Wales should have a dry

afternoon. The showers working into

3:18:193:18:24

Southern England, getting into

Hampshire and the Isle of Wight

3:18:243:18:26

before long but probably falling as

rain.

3:18:263:18:32

rain. Overnight, some showers

pushing north. Snow over the tops of

3:18:323:18:35

the peaks and Pennines. Further snow

showers for parts of eastern

3:18:353:18:38

Scotland. White bread is crossed

developing. -- widespread frost

3:18:383:18:43

developing. A slippery start to the

day. On Sunday temperatures will

3:18:433:18:50

creep up further across the UK as a

whole but will turn relatively mild

3:18:503:18:54

compared with recent days in the

south. I bricks of rain push-up

3:18:543:18:58

across Wales and England. The winds

will pick up as well. The

3:18:583:19:02

temperatures will boost to around

8-9 across southern parts through

3:19:023:19:07

Sunday, further north that are still

quite chilly and there will be

3:19:073:19:10

wintry showers around. More snow to

come on the hills of eastern

3:19:103:19:14

Scotland and north-east England. So

we're not completely done with this

3:19:143:19:19

wintry spell of weather. It stays

cold next week across the north of

3:19:193:19:23

the UK weather is the ongoing threat

of further snow. But it will mainly

3:19:233:19:27

be confined to the hills. Elsewhere

it turns less cold with rain showers

3:19:273:19:31

at times. So yes, we are over the

worst, but because of the snow on

3:19:313:19:39

the ground and more wintry weather

around today, articulate with the

3:19:393:19:41

risk of ice, we could still have

further problems over the coming

3:19:413:19:46

hours.

3:19:463:19:51

You'll know that we've been looking

at special educational needs and how

3:19:563:20:00

it affects individuals and their

families. Today we focus on families

3:20:003:20:06

unable to travelling on average

three times further than children in

3:20:063:20:10

other institutions, in some places

making 30 mile round trips. The

3:20:103:20:13

government says it is committed, but

education institute said it has

3:20:133:20:19

neglected special skills.

3:20:193:20:25

6:30am, and Nikki is getting ready

for the school run.

He was diagnosed

3:20:253:20:31

with autism spectrum disorder at age

seven and is now suffering from

3:20:313:20:33

suspected of dramatic stress related

to what happened in his mainstream

3:20:333:20:38

school.

Oscar, who is 11, has a

daily school journey of 47 miles

3:20:383:20:44

each way.

On a good run it as one

hour and 20 minutes, on a bad run we

3:20:443:20:50

have taken three hours. It is our

nearest most appropriate school for

3:20:503:20:58

our child. Families in a situation

don't get a choice.

It is 7:30am and

3:20:583:21:04

George is about to get in his taxi

to go the 11 miles to school.

We

3:21:043:21:12

asked other families in similar

situations to share their school run

3:21:123:21:14

with us.

The journey can sometimes

take from one hour to two hours.

The

3:21:143:21:22

school journeys of children with

special educational needs and

3:21:223:21:25

disabilities have been analysed for

a new report by the education policy

3:21:253:21:29

Institute. Children in special

schools travel on average almost

3:21:293:21:34

three times further than pupils in

mainstream education. In rural areas

3:21:343:21:38

one in ten special needs pupil faces

a daily round-trip of more than 40

3:21:383:21:44

miles.

For some pupils we may find

that

3:21:443:21:49

miles.

For some pupils we may find

that the distances they have to

3:21:493:21:50

travel are insurmountable. There are

thousands of pupils nationally

3:21:503:21:55

attending special schools. We have

debates around Free Schools, faith

3:21:553:21:58

schools, grammar schools, and we

have ignored the 1000 special

3:21:583:22:02

schools that are in this country and

ensuring that pupils opted to access

3:22:023:22:06

them are able to.

Bilawal, councils

in England must pay for transport

3:22:063:22:11

for children who cannot walk to

school because of their special

3:22:113:22:14

educational need or disability that

might mean in mileage allowance,

3:22:143:22:20

taxi or minibus. Elsewhere in the UK

local authorities have more

3:22:203:22:22

discretion.

Did they tell you why it

was refused?

But the disability

3:22:223:22:30

charity Contact has said it has seen

a huge increase in family seeking

3:22:303:22:33

help.

A lot of calls to the contact

helpline are about local authorities

3:22:333:22:38

not following the law properly.

Refusing free school transport for

3:22:383:22:45

disabled children. They have not

been considering the trial's

3:22:453:22:48

disability or special need.

The

Department for Education told us

3:22:483:22:53

that through government funding

local authorities are spending £600

3:22:533:22:57

million on transport for children

with special educational needs. Over

3:22:573:23:00

the next three years an extra 215

million will be available for school

3:23:003:23:05

places and facilities. Statutory

guidance for local authorities is

3:23:053:23:08

also under review. Many parents say

their journeys are so long there's

3:23:083:23:14

no point in coming home before

pick-up time.

Now what I will do is

3:23:143:23:19

hang around Cambridge until pick-up

time at quarter past three.

The

3:23:193:23:26

local government Association says

councils work hard to provide

3:23:263:23:28

suitable school transport for

children with special needs, but it

3:23:283:23:32

says current government funding does

not reflect the demand being placed

3:23:323:23:36

on councils.

3:23:363:23:42

You're watching

Breakfast from BBC News.

3:23:423:23:48

We'll just having a conversation

about your coffee stash their full

3:23:483:23:51

stop anyway.

3:23:513:23:52

Time now for a look

at the newspapers.

3:23:523:23:57

Professor of entrepreneurship,

Vikas Shah,

3:23:573:23:58

is here to tell us what's

caught his eye.

3:23:583:24:06

The first story is about lock chain

and Bitcoin. The Bank of England are

3:24:093:24:14

stepping in and saying, we will try

to get to grips with this and figure

3:24:143:24:18

out how to regulate it, and it is

interesting because ultimately

3:24:183:24:25

blockchan, which is the technology

that these things are based on, it

3:24:253:24:30

is really revolutionary, and it

could really change finance and

3:24:303:24:32

banking underwriting for the better.

But currencies like Bitcoin and

3:24:323:24:37

these things are still so new, and

the growth has been so unprecedented

3:24:373:24:41

that government and financial crime

agency is just now what to do.

And

3:24:413:24:47

people don't know what blockchain

is. It is basically a ledger.

Yes,

3:24:473:24:53

think of it is a big digital

accounting book. But imagine every

3:24:533:24:57

accountant had the same book that

updated instantly, and you cannot

3:24:573:25:00

fool that, because of one of those

books is wrong, they destroyed

3:25:003:25:04

because it cannot be right.

You have

a decent understanding of these

3:25:043:25:08

things. Would you buy Bitcoin?

I

have a few full stop I have some

3:25:083:25:14

investment in crypto currency.

For

me it is just curious and fun. It's

3:25:143:25:20

an expensive way to be curious. The

price of a Bitcoin now is a lot.

It

3:25:203:25:25

is now, don't forget when these

things first came out they were

3:25:253:25:28

fractions of a fraction of a penny,

and the price goes up and down quite

3:25:283:25:32

significantly, even during a typical

day. You may be up $10,000 and down

3:25:323:25:38

$20,000 in the space of a few hours.

They are something that needs

3:25:383:25:43

regulation to protect investors and

protect people who want to use.

When

3:25:433:25:46

Marconi says that the coin attracts.

Mac I think that is a dangerous

3:25:463:25:53

phrase to use.

People said the same

thing about people who invested in

3:25:533:25:57

Facebook and things like that. We

don't know what the real situation

3:25:573:25:59

is.

From Bitcoin to selfies.

Yes.

This is both interesting and

3:25:593:26:08

frightening, the story, a testament

are times, there are trends now in

3:26:083:26:12

different parts of the world, the

story focuses on China, people are

3:26:123:26:15

spending tens of thousands of

dollars of their own money on

3:26:153:26:19

plastic surgery specifically to look

good on selfies. And we have

3:26:193:26:23

multi-billion dollars of business is

making selfie editing apps. Most

3:26:233:26:30

people, the average time it took to

edit a selfie before posting it? 40

3:26:303:26:35

minutes. And now people are making

millions of dollars of income in

3:26:353:26:40

their own right just posting selfies

product is. It is depressing and

3:26:403:26:44

challenging, and I think you really

awful reflection on the negative

3:26:443:26:48

side of social media.

Who has that

much time? 40 minutes to edit one

3:26:483:26:52

picture? But we all want to was Mike

Reed beanpole faced about it? When

3:26:523:27:01

was the last time you took a selfie?

I don't often, to be honest, but if

3:27:013:27:06

you do that, you want to look nice.

None of us are immune.

I think it is

3:27:063:27:14

natural that everyone of us wants to

look good and feel good, and social

3:27:143:27:17

media gives you that instant

engagement with an audience, you

3:27:173:27:21

post a selfie and a lot of people

like it, and it is like a drug, the

3:27:213:27:24

psychologists show that it is

actually the same response people

3:27:243:27:27

get from a drug is the response from

social media, and that is why it can

3:27:273:27:33

become addictive and become a bit

toxic when it stops being just a

3:27:333:27:38

nice empowering thing, to becoming

an obsession.

One more story? And

3:27:383:27:45

expensive Mylan and Einstein.

I've

is then used the violin as a means

3:27:453:27:53

to get his mathematical theories.

The reason I picked this, summary

3:27:533:27:56

people meet at the top of their

game, they are Renaissance thinkers,

3:27:563:28:00

they have so many interests outside

their field, and the always

3:28:003:28:03

attribute those interests to being

where they get their great ideas

3:28:033:28:05

from. It is the science of

serendipity, as they say.

Wouldn't

3:28:053:28:12

have time to do that of selfies were

around back then.

3:28:123:28:19

This is Breakfast.

3:28:193:28:20

We're on BBC One until ten

o'clock this morning,

3:28:203:28:22

when Matt Tebbutt takes over

in the Saturday kitchen.

3:28:223:28:24

You are

great comedian, we are very cited.

3:28:423:28:45

That's what it says on the autocue.

Food heaven and hell, what your

3:28:453:28:51

heavenly ingredient?

Pastor, I could

eat for breakfast. I love carbs. To

3:28:513:28:56

make it a bit posh, frozen seafood

in there. Scallops, prawns.

3:28:563:29:01

Magazines. -- langoustine is.

And

your hellish ingredient?

I don't

3:29:013:29:14

hate the taste of anything, it is

texture from me. Pork. Wobbly port,

3:29:143:29:21

Slipper report, chewy pork. And

mushrooms. Which is just mauled,

3:29:213:29:27

isn't it? It is literally mauled.

And we have two great chefs with us

3:29:273:29:35

for details. We will see you at ten

o'clock.

3:30:093:30:15

Stay with us, headlines coming up.

3:30:153:30:18

Hello, this is Breakfast

with Charlie Stayt and Tina Daheley.

3:30:493:30:53

At 9.30, a summary of this

morning's main news.

3:30:533:30:58

Weather warnings for snow

and ice remain in place

3:30:583:31:00

across much of the UK -

that's despite temperatures

3:31:003:31:03

being expected to gradually

rise in many areas.

3:31:033:31:06

2,000 homes are without power

and motorists and rail passengers

3:31:063:31:09

face further disruption.

3:31:093:31:17

In the last few minutes,

the rail line at Dawlish

3:31:203:31:27

has been cleared for use.

3:31:273:31:35

It had been closed due to flooding

caused by high tides.

3:31:353:31:41

The Prime Minister's

speech on Britain leaving

3:31:413:31:43

the European Union has been given

a cautious welcome by both the Leave

3:31:433:31:46

and Remain wings of her party.

3:31:463:31:48

Theresa May set out her

vision of the UK's future

3:31:483:31:50

trading relationship with the EU

and called for concessions

3:31:503:31:52

on all sides.

3:31:523:31:53

She said she was confident remaining

differences over a draft legal

3:31:533:31:56

agreement could be resolved,

allowing trade talks

3:31:563:31:58

to get under way.

3:31:583:31:59

Two men have been arrested

by police investigating

3:31:593:32:01

an explosion in Leicester that

killed five people.

3:32:013:32:02

The men, both in their 30s

and from East Anglia,

3:32:023:32:05

are being held on suspicion

of conspiracy to cause an explosion.

3:32:053:32:08

Three other men, also in their 30s,

were arrested on suspicion

3:32:083:32:10

of manslaughter on Wednesday

and continue to be

3:32:103:32:12

questioned by detectives.

3:32:123:32:13

The body which sets the rules

for world football is expected

3:32:133:32:16

to approve the use of video replay

technology throughout the sport

3:32:163:32:18

when it meets in Zurich today.

3:32:183:32:20

The system, VAR, has been used

on a trial basis in several

3:32:203:32:23

countries including some cup

matches in England.

3:32:233:32:24

But there are concerns that it

disrupts the flow of a game

3:32:243:32:27

and confuses officials.

3:32:273:32:30

And those are the main stories this

morning. Let's pick up on some of

3:32:303:32:35

these snow issues now.

3:32:353:32:37

Four days of snow may have

brought the UK grinding

3:32:373:32:39

to a halt but on many farms,

it is business as usual.

3:32:393:32:42

One family near Gisburn

in Lancashire have

3:32:423:32:48

found an interesting way

to help their newborn lambs survive

3:32:483:32:51

the Beast from the East -

by putting them in their aga.

3:32:513:32:53

We advise you don't

try this at home.

3:32:533:32:55

According to the farmer,

he pops them in for a quick ten

3:32:553:32:58

minutes to warm them up.

3:32:583:33:02

It makes perfect sense and it works.

Practical.

3:33:023:33:07

Cute pictures of the day. I could

look at that although. A little lamb

3:33:073:33:11

in the oven there. But it will be

released.

3:33:113:33:17

That was a very big sigh you gave

just then.

3:33:173:33:20

It was very cute, wasn't it? Also, I

am exhausted after watching the

3:33:203:33:26

cricket. It all came down to the

last ball and England won, so they

3:33:263:33:30

are too one up in the match with --

they are 2-1-mac up in the series

3:33:303:33:40

with two to play.

3:33:403:33:44

The Kiwis made a steady start,

as they chase that target of 235

3:33:443:33:47

to win in this third match.

3:33:473:33:49

But Ben Stokes took a brilliant

catch off Adil Rashid

3:33:493:33:51

to start a run of wickets.

3:33:513:33:53

Moeen Ali took two

wickets in three balls -

3:33:533:33:55

New Zealand lost four

for just six runs.

3:33:553:33:57

But Captain Kane Williamson

kept things steady.

3:33:573:33:59

Then a key moment, Williamson gave

a catching chance to Chris Woakes,

3:33:593:34:02

who could only get a finger on it

but the ball, went on to the stumps

3:34:023:34:05

and ran out the other

bastman Mitchell Santner.

3:34:053:34:07

Williamson finished 112 not out,

but couldn't cap his century

3:34:073:34:10

with the winning runs.

3:34:103:34:12

He wasn't able to get

a six off the last ball,

3:34:123:34:15

giving England victory

by four runs and a 2-1

3:34:153:34:20

lead in the series.

3:34:203:34:25

Now after years of disappointment,

Katarina Johnson-Thompson

3:34:253:34:27

has finally won her first world

title in pentathlon at the world

3:34:273:34:30

indoor championships in Birmingham.

3:34:303:34:32

She's now 25 and last year,

relocated to the south of France

3:34:323:34:36

and it's done the trick -

victory in the 800 metres to end

3:34:363:34:40

what she said had been a wobbly,

but in the end, a dominant day.

3:34:403:34:44

She set a new personal best

in the shot putt and came out

3:34:443:34:47

on top in the long jump.

3:34:473:34:50

It comes after she suffered

disappointment at the world outdoor

3:34:503:34:52

championships in London last summer.

3:34:523:34:58

I can't believe it. I've dreamt of

this for so long and to come here

3:34:583:35:04

and do it at home, it's something I

dreamt of doing last summer, and I'm

3:35:043:35:08

so happy I got to rectify it. All of

my family are here today about

3:35:083:35:11

something that doesn't normally

happen. I had a hard year last year

3:35:113:35:15

to the end of the year and I wanted

my family to see me achieve

3:35:153:35:19

something. So I'm so happy they were

here to witness it morning and

3:35:193:35:24

afternoon. It's just great. I still

can't believe it, really.

3:35:243:35:27

Well that's Britain's second medal

of these championships,

3:35:273:35:29

and there could be more

to come today.

3:35:293:35:31

Laura Muir is looking to follow

up the bronze she won

3:35:313:35:33

in the 3000 metres with another

medal in the 1500 today.

3:35:333:35:36

She qualified for the final

in second place in her heat,

3:35:363:35:39

behind Friday's gold

medallist, Genzebe Dibaba.

3:35:393:35:41

Great Britain added

another medal on day three

3:35:413:35:46

of the World Track Championship

in the Netherlands.

3:35:463:35:48

Mark Stewart won bronze

in the men's points race,

3:35:483:35:50

which is over 160 laps.

3:35:503:35:52

Australia's Cameron Meyer

retained his title with home rider

3:35:523:35:55

Jan Willem van Schip taking silver.

3:35:553:35:58

Britain now have four medals -

one gold, two silvers

3:35:583:36:00

and Stewart's bronze.

3:36:003:36:03

It was a difficult evening

for Britain's Elinor Barker

3:36:033:36:05

as she was caught up in this crash,

during the elimination race,

3:36:053:36:08

in the women's omnium.

3:36:083:36:10

She went into this final event,

which was, the points race,

3:36:103:36:16

in the bronze medal position,

but couldn't manage to hold

3:36:163:36:18

on to it, finishing sixth overall.

3:36:183:36:20

Kirsten Vild took gold

for the Netherlands.

3:36:203:36:26

Super League fixtures have

been hit by the weather,

3:36:263:36:28

but last night's games went ahead.

3:36:283:36:31

Hull FC got their season back on

track by beating Warrington 21-12.

3:36:313:36:34

It was a bad tempered

affair in which both

3:36:343:36:37

sides had a man sent off,

after two red cards.

3:36:373:36:43

Elsewhere, Wigan moved up to second,

with a 32-16 win over Widnes.

3:36:433:36:51

In the football, Wolves against

Reding is the latest match to be

3:36:513:36:54

called off today. Many matches are

postponed, so do check the website

3:36:543:36:57

before setting out.

I'll bet leads

wish their game at Middlesbrough had

3:36:573:37:02

been called off.

3:37:023:37:04

Middlesbrough are into

the Championship play-off places,

3:37:043:37:06

after beating Leeds 3-0.

3:37:063:37:07

It was a hat-trick from

striker Patrick Bamford

3:37:073:37:08

that pushed Boro into the top six.

3:37:083:37:16

Despite the weather,

all the Scottish Cup quarter-finals

3:37:163:37:17

and all seven Premier League

fixtures are expected to go ahead.

3:37:173:37:20

The match of the day sees

Liverpool welcome

3:37:203:37:24

Newcastle United manager

Rafael Benitez back to Anfield.

3:37:243:37:26

The Spaniard is unbeaten

against his former club.

3:37:263:37:34

Now if you're looking

for a new sport to warm you up

3:37:353:37:38

during the cold weather,

then all you'll need is a ball,

3:37:383:37:41

a wall and your bare hands.

3:37:413:37:42

It's the sport that is based

on a playground game,

3:37:423:37:45

but it's now been formalised

and ahead of the UK championships,

3:37:453:37:48

I went to try wallball

in west London.

3:37:483:37:56

It's the sport that started

in the playground when we were kids

3:38:063:38:09

and now they are trying to take it

back there again now that

3:38:093:38:13

it's officially known

as wallball, because the beauty

3:38:133:38:14

is its simplicity.

3:38:143:38:15

All you need is a ball and a wall.

3:38:153:38:17

Similar to squash but even easier

because all it's got to do is hit

3:38:173:38:21

the wall and land in the court

and the rally continues

3:38:213:38:24

until somebody misses the ball.

3:38:243:38:30

It has been going on for hundreds

of years all over the world.

3:38:303:38:36

In New York, there are 2500 courts

free to use everyday.

3:38:363:38:38

That's what we want to do here.

3:38:383:38:40

It has derived from the game fives

which was derived from public

3:38:403:38:48

schools centuries ago but in fives

you need four walls.

3:38:483:38:50

This means it was more difficult

to play but this can be played

3:38:503:38:54

anywhere by people of any

age and ability.

3:38:543:38:58

You go like this and go wham.

3:38:583:39:00

It feels really good.

3:39:003:39:01

It has got me running around.

3:39:013:39:06

Hopefully I will lose my paunch.

3:39:063:39:08

The ball is bouncy if

you hit it too hard.

3:39:083:39:10

You don't want to hit

it with too much power

3:39:103:39:12

but a little bit of power.

3:39:123:39:14

It's like playing tennis

or squash but without

3:39:143:39:16

a racket, just your hand.

3:39:163:39:24

So anyone with arthritis, I think it

would do them the world of good.

3:39:253:39:29

The majority of people,

this is really simple for them.

3:39:293:39:31

Right, left coordination.

3:39:313:39:39

If you are thinking about stroke

rehabilitation, the right-left

3:39:403:39:42

side is so important.

3:39:423:39:43

For kids development and adults

getting active, they are simple,

3:39:433:39:46

safe movements which are very

easy to do.

3:39:463:39:53

Which is why UK wallball now hope

to spread this to other cities

3:39:533:39:56

around the UK and the British team

will compete in the World Cup

3:39:563:39:59

in the US later this year.

3:39:593:40:01

The men's team are

now in the top five.

3:40:013:40:03

At a top-level, like when you play

with the great British squad,

3:40:033:40:06

you can wear gloves,

so I have opted for that.

3:40:063:40:08

At international level,

you get a insight into the speed

3:40:083:40:11

and power and also tactics that

you don't see at other levels.

3:40:113:40:14

I didn't even see it.

3:40:143:40:21

That was a tactic called blocking

where he was standing

3:40:213:40:23

in front so I didn't see it

until it was too late.

3:40:233:40:26

Unlike squash and other sports,

you can be an obstacle on court.

3:40:263:40:31

He is allowed to be there.

3:40:313:40:34

The ball can go in between his legs

and you have to play it.

3:40:403:40:43

Whether you are being blocked

or not, you can was be

3:40:433:40:46

deceived by the bounce.

3:40:463:40:48

-- you can always be

deceived by the bounce.

3:40:483:40:52

The clothing company Gap has been

praised on social media

3:40:523:40:55

for posting a candid photograph

of a model breastfeeding her son

3:40:553:40:58

on its Instagram account.

3:40:583:40:59

Followers have thanked the chain

for 'normalising' the practice.

3:40:593:41:04

If I am looking a little bit

distracted, it is

3:41:043:41:12

distracted, it is because Nova is

here and she apparently throwing

3:41:123:41:15

crayons on the floor. Her mum is

here as well. We will introduce

3:41:153:41:18

everyone in a moment.

3:41:183:41:20

Breastfeeding rates in the UK

are among the lowest in the world,

3:41:203:41:23

so could those kind

of images encourage more

3:41:233:41:25

women to give it a go?

3:41:253:41:26

Michelle Beacock is a senior

lecturer in Midwifery

3:41:263:41:28

at John Moore University

and Aimee Wood is breastfeeding her

3:41:283:41:30

15-month-old daughter, Nova.

3:41:303:41:32

They join us now.

3:41:323:41:33

Nova is busy at the moment. Amy, you

went public, if you like, with

3:41:333:41:36

breast-feeding. You posted images of

yourself breast-feeding. Why did you

3:41:363:41:40

do that and what kind of an impact

did it have?

At first, I was posting

3:41:403:41:44

them because I was breast-feeding

pretty much constantly because she

3:41:443:41:50

had reflux, so that was her way of

reflux. I still wanted to post

3:41:503:41:55

pictures of my daughter. I was

posting pictures of breast-feeding

3:41:553:41:57

because I didn't see a problem with

that. After receiving hate online, I

3:41:573:42:04

started posting for awareness that

people do this.

These are the sort

3:42:043:42:08

of pictures you posted online. When

you say you started receiving hate,

3:42:083:42:11

what kind of things would people

sent to you?

The main thing that I

3:42:113:42:16

got was a man who started saying

that my daughter would be bullied

3:42:163:42:20

when she was older for these images

and started saying some disgusting

3:42:203:42:24

things that I really wouldn't want

to say now.

No, don't, but we should

3:42:243:42:29

also say that with the example

3:42:293:42:35

also say that with the example of

the Gap story we were talking about,

3:42:353:42:37

that got a lot of positive response

with people using the hash tag

3:42:373:42:41

normalise breast-feeding, that is

what we are looking at now, but why

3:42:413:42:46

do you think it gets such a big

reaction on both sides, both

3:42:463:42:50

positive and negative?

I think

breast-feeding is a very emotive

3:42:503:42:53

subject for people in British

society. It's very fraught in

3:42:533:42:56

British society because it is not

very common which is a shame because

3:42:563:43:00

breast-feeding is a lovely way to

feed your baby. I think a lot of

3:43:003:43:05

women face challenges with

breast-feeding and that's why it is

3:43:053:43:08

so emotive. I think when it is

emotive, strong reactions happen to

3:43:083:43:13

pictures like that, which are just

lovely pictures. A lovely picture of

3:43:133:43:16

a mum and a baby. We are just not

used to seeing it.

So you think it

3:43:163:43:22

is a good thing, pictures like that

being used in the media to normalise

3:43:223:43:25

breast-feeding?

Yes, absolutely

because we are so to seeing it. The

3:43:253:43:31

stats in this country for

breast-feeding at six months

3:43:313:43:36

compared to Norway, Norway is 71%

and the UK is 41%.

But what would

3:43:363:43:43

you say to women who feel they are

being pressured into it and that

3:43:433:43:48

they are failing somehow if they try

and fail at some point. -- if they

3:43:483:43:54

try and Ben are having to stop at

some point.

We know that most women

3:43:543:44:01

who stop breast-feeding don't want

to stop breast-feeding but there are

3:44:013:44:05

different social, cultural and

political barriers in their way. The

3:44:053:44:09

Royal College of midwives talks

about 3000 shortage of midwives. If

3:44:093:44:13

we had those midwives are they

helping people, perhaps women

3:44:133:44:17

wouldn't stop breast-feeding.

But

some people physically can't?

Some

3:44:173:44:22

people physically can't but if you

compare the rates of British society

3:44:223:44:26

to Norway, British women are not so

different to Norwegian women, we are

3:44:263:44:30

not built differently, but the rates

are very different which shows it as

3:44:303:44:34

a political and cultural issue.

Do

you think, Amy, you get a sense that

3:44:343:44:40

things are changing?

I think maybe

slowly. When I looked at the Gap

3:44:403:44:46

campaign, I expected to see at least

a few comments that were sort of on

3:44:463:44:50

the other side, a bit negative, but

I didn't see anything that was

3:44:503:44:54

against the pictures of her feeding.

I have seen a lot of comments

3:44:543:45:00

supporting that kind of thing,

whereas I have seen in the past that

3:45:003:45:03

it is wrong to post those pictures.

A lot of people have said to me that

3:45:033:45:06

they have not breast-fed because

they were scared to do it in public

3:45:063:45:10

or scared of people seeing them do

it. I think slowly, maybe, people

3:45:103:45:15

are starting to get there with being

able to accept it, but like you say

3:45:153:45:19

with these pictures being online, I

think it does help. If we are seeing

3:45:193:45:24

it more and more every day,

especially with big campaigns like

3:45:243:45:28

Gap, I think people will start to

see it as more normal and if it was

3:45:283:45:32

an everyday thing that you saw every

day, it would be seen as normal,

3:45:323:45:35

whereas it is not something you see

everyday.

So it is not necessarily

3:45:353:45:40

how long you breast-feed four, H

comes into it as well?

Yes, because

3:45:403:45:45

the woman on the Gap campaign is

feeding a 20-month-old, a toddler,

3:45:453:45:51

and the World Health Organisation

recommends breast-feeding up to two

3:45:513:45:54

years although further, but in our

country we have the lowest rates of

3:45:543:45:58

breast-feeding. Nova is 15 months

and we have carried on. I never

3:45:583:46:02

expected to get this far with Nova.

I don't know any other months

3:46:023:46:08

personally that have breast-fed even

up until a year.

The problem is that

3:46:083:46:15

the stats are kept to capture those

breast-feeding and those who are

3:46:153:46:24

breast-feeding long term are not

always as strong as Amy to want to

3:46:243:46:32

tell people.

I know what people will

want to see. They will want to see

3:46:323:46:38

the picture. Know that and I have

been very busy. It was a combined

3:46:383:46:42

effort. We did it together, Nova.

Yes? It was all my work entirely.

3:46:423:46:51

Lovely to see you.

Thank you. The time now is 946A. You

3:46:513:46:56

are watching breakfast BBC News.

3:46:563:47:00

The main stories this morning.

3:47:003:47:01

Snow, ice and strong winds continue

to cause major travel disruption,

3:47:013:47:04

with flood warnings issued in parts

of the south west and north east.

3:47:043:47:07

A day after The Prime Minister set

out her hopes for Brexit

3:47:073:47:10

in a major speech -

EU officials say it lacked details.

3:47:103:47:13

Lots to talk about with the weather.

Chris, what can you tell us. What is

3:47:203:47:25

in store

3:47:253:47:26

Chris, what can you tell us. What is

in store for the rest of the day and

3:47:263:47:27

beyond?

Well, further problems to come today

3:47:273:47:30

for some of us but gradually the

weather is getting a little bit less

3:47:303:47:34

bad. That said, we have seen more

snow overnight. There are now 55

3:47:343:47:40

centimetres of snow on the ground at

Saint Athan near Cardiff in South

3:47:403:47:43

Wales. That is why many people still

haven't really been able to venture

3:47:433:47:47

out very far, because of this

extreme weather and extreme snow.

3:47:473:47:53

Things will get slightly less bad,

if you like, as we go on through the

3:47:533:47:57

weekend. Although there was a little

bit of snow around today,

3:47:573:48:00

particularly in the north-east, it

won't be anywhere near as bad as it

3:48:003:48:04

has been and as most of the country

still struggles with the easterly

3:48:043:48:09

winds, further south, we will see

the slightly warmer air is dredged

3:48:093:48:12

up from the Bay of Biscay. A lot of

cloud around today and it is its

3:48:123:48:17

thickest across parts of Wales,

northern England and Northern

3:48:173:48:20

Ireland where we have a weather

front. This line of snow you can see

3:48:203:48:25

working its way northwards. Plenty

of snow showers also affecting used

3:48:253:48:28

in Scotland. But it's not just snow.

Across eastern Scotland, eastern

3:48:283:48:33

England, we are also seeing frozen

rain this morning, which is liquid

3:48:333:48:37

rain that has a temperature below

freezing which means when it hits

3:48:373:48:43

any surface that literally turns to

ice. That is what happened yesterday

3:48:433:48:46

in Devon and near to where those

pictures were sent to us from, there

3:48:463:48:49

was a ten car pile-up on the 838.

It's that dangerous with those kinds

3:48:493:48:54

of conditions. Watch out for black

eyes. It could be quite widespread

3:48:543:49:01

across east Scotland, north-east

England, dangerous conditions on the

3:49:013:49:04

roads and pavements as well.

Elsewhere, we have showers affecting

3:49:043:49:09

South west England. They will come

in more quickly than expected across

3:49:093:49:13

Hampshire and may be spreading to

Sussex as well. Turning left cold

3:49:133:49:20

slowly in the south. Overnight

tonight, though showers will

3:49:203:49:25

continue to drift northwards so we

are looking at the risk of further

3:49:253:49:28

snowfall across the peaks and the

Pennines, with further snow showers

3:49:283:49:32

across eastern Scotland. A

widespread frost and again that

3:49:323:49:35

means we are looking at icy

conditions to take us on into

3:49:353:49:39

Sunday. Ice again causing problems

first thing tomorrow and tomorrow,

3:49:393:49:43

with low pressure, we look at

further showers moving in across

3:49:433:49:49

England. Most of them are blue, as

you can see, so looking at rain

3:49:493:49:54

showers rather than anything wintry

in the South. For northern and

3:49:543:49:59

eastern Scotland, there will be more

snide particularly in the hills,

3:49:593:50:03

lower down, rain or sleet as the

weather begins to turn a little bit

3:50:033:50:09

less cold. That trend is said to

continue into next week. Still quite

3:50:093:50:13

cold across Scotland in particular

and it is here where there is the

3:50:133:50:17

risk of further snow in the week

ahead, particularly across the

3:50:173:50:21

hills. Elsewhere in the United

Kingdom, temperatures will be

3:50:213:50:23

creeping up day by day, but we are

looking at bands of rain. Combined

3:50:233:50:30

with snowmelt, that could cause

problems in its own right. The

3:50:303:50:34

weather is going to slowly improving

the coming days, but particularly

3:50:343:50:37

across eastern Scotland and North

east England, with a combination of

3:50:373:50:41

freezing snow and rain bringing the

risk of widespread ice over the next

3:50:413:50:45

few days. -- next few hours.

3:50:453:50:52

risk of widespread ice over the next

few days. -- next few hours.

3:50:523:50:55

Chris, we have talked a lot about

the weather the last few days. The

3:50:553:50:59

snow on those minus side roads is

not going to go away in a hurry now,

3:50:593:51:03

is it? It will take a few days?

No, and one thing we have seen is

3:51:033:51:08

because it was snow that was

relatively dry when it came in, it

3:51:083:51:14

came down in Needles really, so it

is blowing down a bit more. Even if

3:51:143:51:20

we are not seeing snowfall today

where you live, if there is a lot on

3:51:203:51:24

the ground and it is still quite

windy, that snow still has the

3:51:243:51:28

potential to drift which could in

itself cause further problems even

3:51:283:51:31

as the weather is improving. So,

yes, we are likely to see that the

3:51:313:51:35

problems but the main focus needs to

be on the risk of ice across eastern

3:51:353:51:40

Scotland and north-east England over

the coming hours.

3:51:403:51:42

Chris, thanks very much.

It is not over yet.

3:51:423:51:46

For most of us, singing

in front of a 100 people

3:51:463:51:49

would be nerve wracking,

especially if one of them happened

3:51:493:51:51

to be a former Spice Girl

who was judging your performance.

3:51:513:51:54

All Together Now, sees 'wannabe'

singers trying to get

3:51:543:51:56

as many of the judges on their feet

and singing along.

3:51:563:51:59

In a moment, we'll speak to three

of the contestants who have made it

3:51:593:52:02

through to tonight's final,

but first, let's take a look

3:52:023:52:04

at their performances.

3:52:043:52:08

Hi, I'm James from Derby. I'm

Michael from Hartlepool. I'm really

3:52:083:52:13

nervous.

My name is Rachel from

Portsmouth.

Oh, hello Alexa Scimeca

3:52:133:52:22

Knierim -- oh, hello!

3:52:223:52:27

# O, left a good job in the city

# I never lost a minutes sleep...

3:52:373:52:48

# Because we are ordinary people...

#

3:52:483:52:57

He's got 100!

3:52:573:53:04

Well, that was impressive.

3:53:093:53:11

Michael Rice, Rachael Hawnt

and James Thompson join us now.

3:53:113:53:19

How nerve-racking is that? It's not

having to impress a few judges.

It's

3:53:193:53:24

100 people. That's right, some of

these other shows, there are a few

3:53:243:53:30

people to impress, three or four,

but there are 100 people sitting

3:53:303:53:33

there.

When you walk out, they are

quite literally towering over you.

3:53:333:53:38

You're like, OK.

Presumably you will

have different levels of experience

3:53:383:53:44

of what you have done before.

Michael, tell people about yourself.

3:53:443:53:50

I'm Michael, I used to work at

McDonald's before the show. I just

3:53:503:53:54

busked on the weekends before the

show, and then I applied for the

3:53:543:53:58

show.

I feel like you are doing an

addition right now.

3:53:583:54:04

What is your name and where are you

from?

3:54:043:54:07

You had obviously some quite a bit.

I was on the X factor when I was 16.

3:54:073:54:13

That is where it all started, it

gave me a confidence boost.

What

3:54:133:54:18

does it mean, James, to have gotten

this far? Did you expect to get this

3:54:183:54:22

far?

I did not expect it at all. I

mean, to get through to the final

3:54:223:54:28

was one thing, but getting 100, that

was what got me. I really wasn't

3:54:283:54:34

expecting that. You see so many

people get up, go up, pour their

3:54:343:54:39

hearts out on stage and they just

miss it. To have all those people

3:54:393:54:43

say we love your voice, we love your

talent, it's very humbling.

We

3:54:433:54:47

talked about the nerves a few

moments ago, but in this show,

3:54:473:54:51

Rachael, you are singing and you are

aware of the reaction as it is going

3:54:513:54:55

through.

I think for myself, I tried

to focus on not worrying about what

3:54:553:55:00

they were doing. It was about going

out there, doing my thing, not

3:55:003:55:03

worrying about whether they like it,

go out there and just sing.

But to

3:55:033:55:09

explain the format, you can see

their reactions?

You can just about

3:55:093:55:13

see them but you can hear their

reactions. And then of course when

3:55:133:55:16

they pressed the buzzer, you see

their reaction.

Tell us about your

3:55:163:55:20

experience?

Icing full-time, a bit

of corporate work, a lot of session

3:55:203:55:29

work, that kind of thing. Nothing

like this.

Has it had an impact on

3:55:293:55:35

your life? Do people recognise you?

I'm not that famous yet!

Yet, James.

3:55:353:55:44

Yes, yet.

3:55:443:55:50

Yes, yet. No, people find out who

you are, which is great. If

3:55:503:55:54

anything, I have made my mum and dad

very proud.

I am just trying to get

3:55:543:55:57

a sense of you. Your style, even

your speaking voice, it's very smoky

3:55:573:56:04

kind of sound.

I grew up singing in

church. Church is an amazing

3:56:043:56:10

training ground that's where alerted

to sing, where I learned to play

3:56:103:56:15

drums and learned to speak well. I

have a gospel background but I grew

3:56:153:56:20

up listening to R&B, soul, Motown.

How important is perhaps? You are

3:56:203:56:27

wearing it...

I kind of like the

hat. I needed in another colour.

3:56:273:56:38

That was you covering John legend.

Amazing.

It's a brilliant song. I'm

3:56:383:56:44

honoured to sing it.

These singing

competitions have been around for

3:56:443:56:48

awhile. People are talking about how

relevant they are. Were you worried

3:56:483:56:52

about taking part in a competition

like this? I know this is a new one.

3:56:523:56:56

I think the idea of the show is new.

It's fun, it's not too serious. The

3:56:563:57:05

other shows can come across as a bit

scary, as in you are being super

3:57:053:57:09

judged, but this was more about

having fun, having a good time and

3:57:093:57:13

not worrying too much about being

judged.

And the people that are

3:57:133:57:18

judging you, it is such a range,

isn't it? And Jerry Horner, have you

3:57:183:57:24

met her?

Yes, you. She is lovely.

Michael, talk to us a little bit,

3:57:243:57:37

you talked about the X factor before

you auditioned there. How did that

3:57:373:57:43

go?

I was 16, still at school and I

got the boot camp. I thought this

3:57:433:57:51

was it, I was going to do it, it

didn't work out that I have been

3:57:513:57:54

busking ever since.

How old are you

now?

I am 20.

So you are still very

3:57:543:58:02

young. How did the nerves work just

before? Are you supportive of each

3:58:023:58:07

other?

Yes, because we are all in a

room beforehand.

Everyone is talking

3:58:073:58:13

and chatting and everyone is just so

supportive. If anyone is nervous,

3:58:133:58:21

they support you.

How where his

nerves shown? Does he go quiet?

He

3:58:213:58:27

does go quiet and in my heat, I was

probably really anti-social. I was

3:58:273:58:33

going over my song again and again,

with a strict plan of where I was

3:58:333:58:39

going to go up and down. To tell a

story in 90 seconds is difficult.

3:58:393:58:44

Everyone has their own way of doing

it. Thank you so much. It's a big

3:58:443:58:48

day today. All Together Now is on

tonight at 7pm and you can see this

3:58:483:58:54

lot on it. That is it from us this

morning. Breakfast back tomorrow

3:58:543:58:59

from 6am.

I will be back here tomorrow with

3:58:593:59:03

Roger. Bye-bye.
