Hello, this is Breakfast,

with Charlie Stayt and Naga

0:00:060:00:08

Munchetty.

0:00:080:00:09

Police investigating the murder

of a businessman in London begin

0:00:090:00:12

contacting other Russian exiles

to discuss their personal

0:00:120:00:14

safety in Britain.

0:00:140:00:19

Forensic teams have been working

through the night to find out

0:00:190:00:22

what happened to Nikolai Glushkov,

who was found dead on Monday.

0:00:220:00:30

Good morning, it's

Saturday 17 March.

0:00:380:00:41

Also this morning: Police launch

a murder investigation after two

0:00:410:00:45

women are shot dead

at a house in East Sussex.

0:00:450:00:49

100 flights are cancelled

and drivers are told to expect

0:00:490:00:52

disruption, as the "mini beast

from the east" sweeps in.

0:00:520:01:00

It will be a shock to the system to

many of us today, as the Siberian

0:01:000:01:04

air returns, ringing a sheet of ice

and snow, there are numerous

0:01:040:01:09

warnings out including amber

warnings, from the Met Office, and I

0:01:090:01:14

will tell you more in about 15

minutes.

0:01:140:01:16

In sport, the St Patrick's Day party

heads for Twickenham.

0:01:160:01:19

Ireland know they're Six Nations

champions already but victory over

0:01:190:01:22

England would give

them the Grand Slam.

0:01:220:01:29

First, police investigating

the murder of a Russian man

0:01:290:01:32

in London say

they have begun contacting other

0:01:320:01:35

Russian exiles in Britain

to discuss their safety.

0:01:350:01:36

Forensics teams have continued

working at the home of 68-year

0:01:360:01:41

Forensics teams have continued

working at the home of 68-year-old

0:01:410:01:44

Nikolai Glushkov, who was

found dead on Monday.

0:01:440:01:46

But police say at this stage,

it is not being connected

0:01:460:01:49

to the poisoning of former

Russian spy Sergei Skripal

0:01:490:01:51

and his daughter in Salisbury.

0:01:510:01:53

John McManus reports.

0:01:530:01:54

68-year-old Nikolai Glushkov, found

dead at his home on this unassuming

0:01:540:01:59

road in Southwest London on Monday.

But Mr Glushkov's life was anything

0:01:590:02:06

but ordinary. The postmortem has

revealed he was murdered, killed by

0:02:060:02:11

compression to the next. Unusually

counterterrorism police are leading

0:02:110:02:16

the -- investigation because of Mr

Glushkov's past weeks. In the 90s he

0:02:160:02:23

was the director of Russian airline

Aeroflot, but sought political

0:02:230:02:29

asylum in the UK and was still being

sued by Russia. He was friends with

0:02:290:02:37

Russian businessmen Boris Berezovsky

who was found dead in 2013. An open

0:02:370:02:42

verdict was recorded but Mr Glushkov

believed he had been murdered. Some

0:02:420:02:50

observers believe it is time to join

the dots.

Mr Glushkov's death fits

0:02:500:02:57

into a wider pattern of the last 12

years of Russian opponents dropping

0:02:570:03:00

dead across Europe. The consequences

for the Kremlin of this were limited

0:03:000:03:06

to far too long, the UK response as

recently been much stronger, but

0:03:060:03:10

there are still awful lot we could

do.

The former PR executive, Lord

0:03:100:03:16

Bell, a friend of Mr Glushkov has

told the BBC he suspects he was

0:03:160:03:20

killed after being deemed a traitor

by the Russian state. Police say

0:03:200:03:23

that at present there is no link

between the murder in London and the

0:03:230:03:28

poisoning of Sergei Skripal and his

daughter in Salisbury. But some

0:03:280:03:31

Russian exiles are being contacted

about their safety.

0:03:310:03:35

Our reporter John McManus is outside

the Russian embassy this morning.

0:03:350:03:38

John, what's the latest?

0:03:380:03:42

Tell us more about the discussions

that police are having with Russian

0:03:420:03:45

exiles?

They have gone to want some

Russian X-Files to talk to them

0:03:450:03:50

about their safety, they say there

is not a definite danger to them but

0:03:500:03:55

they want to make them aware that

there may be things going on. That

0:03:550:03:59

the dramatic row regarding what

happened to Sergei Skripal and his

0:03:590:04:02

daughter in Salsbury is still

continuing as well. They were

0:04:020:04:08

poisoned using a nerve agent on the

fourth of March, they are both still

0:04:080:04:12

critically ill and the Prime

Minister Theresa May is pointing the

0:04:120:04:15

finger very firmly at Russia. She

says that 23 Russian diplomats in

0:04:150:04:19

the embassy based in the building

behind me will have to leave Britain

0:04:190:04:23

as part of Britain's retaliation.

The war of words since begetting

0:04:230:04:27

worse, you say the Foreign Secretary

Boris Johnson said it was

0:04:270:04:30

overwhelmingly likely that the

Russian President Vladimir Putin

0:04:300:04:35

personally ordered that attack in

Salsbury. The Russians say that is a

0:04:350:04:39

disgusting accusation and they are

angry with Boris Johnson to making

0:04:390:04:43

it. They will also probably expels

some British diplomats at some point

0:04:430:04:47

from Russia. That could happen at

any point, and they said they are

0:04:470:04:51

also going to have their own

investigation into what happened to

0:04:510:04:55

Sergei Skripal. These investigations

at the moment between Britain and

0:04:550:04:58

Russia are at a very low point, and

it could carry on like this the

0:04:580:05:02

sometime to come.

Thank you very

much.

0:05:020:05:06

Police have launched a murder

investigation after two women

0:05:060:05:08

were shot and killed

at a house in East Sussex.

0:05:080:05:11

Officers were called to an address

in St Leonards-on-Sea last night.

0:05:110:05:14

A man has been arrested.

0:05:140:05:15

Marta Newman's report contains

some flashing images.

0:05:150:05:21

Officers responded immediately when

they got a report of a shooting at a

0:05:210:05:26

house at around 8pm last night. The

road in this seaside town was closed

0:05:260:05:32

and local residents were asked to

stay away from the area and remain

0:05:320:05:36

indoors. Police say two women aged

32 and 53 were killed. Two other

0:05:360:05:44

women including one who is pregnant

were led to safety by officers and

0:05:440:05:48

taken to hospital. Both were

uninjured but suffering from shock.

0:05:480:05:54

A 35-year-old man has been arrested

on suspicion of murder. He remains

0:05:540:05:58

in custody for questioning. Police

have said that it is were known to

0:05:580:06:03

the suspect and that they are not

looking for anyone else in

0:06:030:06:07

connection with the shooting.

0:06:070:06:13

The former deputy director

of the FBI, Andrew McCabe,

0:06:130:06:15

has been fired just hours before

he was due to formally retire.

0:06:150:06:19

Mr McCabe had faced repeated

criticism from President Trump.

0:06:190:06:22

In a statement he said his sacking

had been politically motivated

0:06:220:06:25

and claimed it was part of a wider

effort to taint the FBI

0:06:250:06:28

and intelligence professionals.

0:06:280:06:30

The number of hospital admissions

due to older people falling

0:06:300:06:33

is expected to rise to nearly 1,000

a day by the end of the decade.

0:06:330:06:37

That's according to figures obtained

by the Local Government Association.

0:06:370:06:40

It's prompted calls for more funding

for adult social care.

0:06:400:06:46

After a fall if someone does not

recover fully they are housebound,

0:06:460:06:51

they may need to be provided with

home help, meals on wheels, and it

0:06:510:06:56

can also have wider impacts on

health, and it is often a case that

0:06:560:06:59

when a person has a serious fall it

is one of the things that's liberate

0:06:590:07:04

-- precipitate the slickly slope of

them becoming housebound. --

0:07:040:07:08

slippery slope.

0:07:080:07:11

More than 100 flights

to and from Heathrow have been

0:07:110:07:14

cancelled ahead of predicted bad

weather dubbed "the mini beast

0:07:140:07:17

from the east."

0:07:170:07:17

The Met Office has issued an amber

warning for snow and ice in much

0:07:170:07:21

of England and parts of Scotland

ahead of another cold snap.

0:07:210:07:24

Highways England is advising

0:07:240:07:25

motorists to avoid trans-Pennine

roads.

0:07:250:07:27

Tens of thousands of people have

been fleeing the northern Syrian

0:07:270:07:30

town of Afrin, as Turkish forces

fight a US-backed Kurdish militia

0:07:300:07:33

that it considers a terrorist group.

0:07:330:07:34

The UN estimates that almost 50,000

people have been displaced

0:07:340:07:37

in the last few days,

with reports from the area that

0:07:370:07:40

dozens of people were killed

in air strikes on Friday.

0:07:400:07:43

At least eight people have been

injured after a faulty ski lift

0:07:430:07:46

threw people from their seats

at a mountain resort in Georgia.

0:07:460:07:49

Skiers and snowboarders

were flung off at speed,

0:07:490:07:54

Skiers and snowboarders

were flung off at speed,

0:07:540:07:54

and others were forced to jump

from the chairlift as their seats

0:07:540:07:58

hurtled backwards down the mountain.

0:07:580:08:01

So far no cause has been given

as to what caused it

0:08:010:08:04

to malfunction.

0:08:040:08:08

to malfunction.

0:08:080:08:09

Three children are being treated

for infections that may be linked

0:08:090:08:12

to bacteria in the water supply

at a Glasgow hospital.

0:08:120:08:14

NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde

is investigating after the discovery

0:08:140:08:17

at the Royal Hospital for Children.

0:08:170:08:19

The source of the bacteria

is not yet known.

0:08:190:08:22

It said tests were ongoing to try

confirm if the children's infections

0:08:220:08:26

are linked to water contamination.

0:08:260:08:34

RuPaul has been awarded a star on

the Hollywood walk of Fame. The host

0:08:380:08:43

of RuPaul's drag race said it was

the most important moment of his

0:08:430:08:49

career. Jane Fonda who presented the

awards it should have been three

0:08:490:08:58

times larger. Landmarks across the

globe are turning a shade of green

0:08:580:09:03

to set -- celebrate St Patrick's

Day. New York and Dublin will host

0:09:030:09:08

the biggest public parade which will

include live music, a sea of green

0:09:080:09:15

and presumably one or two drinks.

Happy St Patrick's Day to all those

0:09:150:09:24

celebrating.

What we're going to

say? I was going to say time.

I was

0:09:240:09:32

going to say, let's look at the

papers. The front page of the papers

0:09:320:09:36

this morning, the Times, the picture

there is from the Gold cup,

0:09:360:09:42

celebrating there, the jockey

celebrating there. The main story is

0:09:420:09:50

Oxfam engulfed by a second sex

scandal in earthquake torn Haiti.

0:09:500:09:56

The Daily Mirror has taken a look at

the Salsbury scandal, -- at the

0:09:560:10:04

child-abuse scandal in Telford,

saying there are 12 more victims. On

0:10:040:10:11

the front page of the Daily

Telegraph, a huge picture of Theresa

0:10:110:10:15

May, and affordable having scheme on

-- affordable housing scheme on new

0:10:150:10:25

estate, the cameras capturing the

moment when she was cuddling a small

0:10:250:10:31

baby, the baby 's name is Teddy

Young. The main story is the murder

0:10:310:10:35

probe after one of light emitted

in's Dicks was found strangled at

0:10:350:10:40

his home. And police advice this

morning to a number of Russian ex-

0:10:400:10:44

aisles living in the UK -- exile.

That story also leading the front

0:10:440:10:52

page of the Guardian, Russian exile

was murdered, police say. The

0:10:520:11:00

picture today is of Olivia De

Havinand, who has brought a case

0:11:000:11:12

against the TV company about her

identity. We are waiting slightly to

0:11:120:11:17

see how the weather is going to be

across the weekend, a lot of

0:11:170:11:21

warnings in place as we speak. Helen

will bring

0:11:210:11:24

warnings in place as we speak. Helen

will bring is up-to-date.

Good

0:11:240:11:24

morning to you both. Lots of changes

this weekend, a shock to the system,

0:11:240:11:29

this was yesterday's temperatures

across the country, some 10 degrees

0:11:290:11:33

more down across southern and

eastern areas. No surprise when I

0:11:330:11:38

tell you that we have warnings out,

Campbell warnings from the Met

0:11:380:11:43

Office, -- amber warnings. We have

ice issues is morning before those

0:11:430:11:48

warnings come into force later this

afternoon. The Siberian air returns,

0:11:480:11:52

blasting across the country from the

east and it is because it is a

0:11:520:11:56

strong- gale force winds that it

will feel even colder than it has

0:11:560:12:00

done this week, is because of that

windchill. We have some winter in

0:12:000:12:04

this in our weather system -- wintry

nest in the weather system, pushing

0:12:040:12:08

southwards, rein in it but it will

turn into sleet and snow. It is the

0:12:080:12:14

showers following that we are

concerned about as we go through the

0:12:140:12:17

day, hence the amber warning. There

will be some brightness in the north

0:12:170:12:22

of Scotland but very little

sunshine, it will be cloudy and will

0:12:220:12:25

feel cold without the strength of

March sunshine. Temperatures are a

0:12:250:12:29

lot lower than they have been this

week, perhaps 6-8 in the south-west

0:12:290:12:33

because we are getting on to the

mother -- rather mild start. -6 and

0:12:330:12:39

-7, the windchill, a real shock

after what we have had full top the

0:12:390:12:43

amber warning, we are concerned

about the killer areas, from the Met

0:12:430:12:49

Office the north-east of England.

Through the top of England and

0:12:490:12:57

through the Thames Valley, and

overnight we're concerned about a

0:12:570:13:02

widespread area of slow coming

across southern England in the south

0:13:020:13:04

of Wales. Really quite a lot to keep

your eye naturally, if you have

0:13:040:13:08

players that today, don't make this

loss forecast C. It is this easterly

0:13:080:13:13

wind that is bringing the snow but

we could have something more

0:13:130:13:16

significant drifting up from the

south across the southern half of

0:13:160:13:19

the country, and there is a lot of

uncertainty as to exactly where and

0:13:190:13:23

how much we will see Premat. Through

the evening and overnight we keep

0:13:230:13:26

this easterly wind going, some areas

could see snow showers, because the

0:13:260:13:31

error is so cold it will settle and

then it comes together to form a

0:13:310:13:37

widespread area so we could see some

fairly significant snow in southern

0:13:370:13:39

areas. That could cause some

disruption is. It is blowing the

0:13:390:13:44

snow around, and clearly with the

sort of temperatures is going to be

0:13:440:13:50

icy as well, the fact that we have

snow in the forecast. We are

0:13:500:13:54

bringing back winter if you like. As

we go through Sunday that initial

0:13:540:14:00

snow clears out of the way but it

will take some time, fewer showers

0:14:000:14:04

and ugly for Scotland and Northern

Ireland as we see the high-pressure

0:14:040:14:07

sinking in, nevertheless it is not

going to be very warm, it will be

0:14:070:14:11

significantly cold day in the south

with that windchill. The main

0:14:110:14:15

message from this forecast is that

it is much colder this weekend,

0:14:150:14:19

today we have some major rugby

matches on the way and in the

0:14:190:14:24

mornings -- warnings which kick in

from the mid-afternoon, amber

0:14:240:14:27

warnings for snow. Do stagings to

local radio and our weather website

0:14:270:14:33

will have more updates.

How much

colder is that we are expecting for

0:14:330:14:39

this time of year, we are well into

spring now?

The strength of the sun,

0:14:390:14:45

if you're out there in the sunshine

you start to feel its effects. So

0:14:450:14:49

without that today it will feel even

colder. The average around this time

0:14:490:14:53

of year would be double figures

across most of the country. What we

0:14:530:14:57

have seen this week is probably more

akin to what we should see, this is

0:14:570:15:01

a dramatic drop. But that is not

unusual in March to see snow, we see

0:15:010:15:05

snow as late as June here in the UK.

That is not predict that.

I'm not

0:15:050:15:10

saying that. It is not that unusual

to see topsy-turvy weather at this

0:15:100:15:15

time of year, because some are isn't

-- because you get the cold air in

0:15:150:15:21

from the Arctic, and we are likely

to see some snow.

0:15:210:15:24

Britain's department stores

used to be the height

0:15:280:15:31

of luxury and service.

0:15:310:15:32

If you needed anything from clothing

to electricals or food,

0:15:320:15:34

they were the place to go.

0:15:340:15:36

But today, they face fierce

competition in all categories,

0:15:360:15:39

as online retailers offer everything

a customer wants at the click

0:15:390:15:41

of a button.

0:15:410:15:43

Radio 4's consumer reporter

Samantha Fenwick has been finding

0:15:430:15:46

out how department stores

are fighting back.

0:15:460:15:52

George Davies has been called a

cereal brand creator, a fashion

0:15:520:15:59

visionary, the king of the high

street.

0:15:590:16:06

street. They are very Abba, these,

aren't they?

Yes, very Abba. I was

0:16:060:16:11

too young to remember Abba.

He was

the man behind Capi, and M&S.

When

0:16:110:16:18

we started, there were 400 stores.

By the time ago to the 1990s, when I

0:16:180:16:26

starting George and ASDA, I already

knew parking was a real problem.

So

0:16:260:16:34

you could see that there was at that

point decline in the high street.

0:16:340:16:39

Yes, sure. It was obvious.

George

left M&S in 2008, vowing never to

0:16:390:16:45

return to the high street. He said

it was no longer a place to make

0:16:450:16:49

money. Ten years on and he has

changed his mind. His new line of

0:16:490:16:53

women's and children's clothing will

be in the shops next week. So why

0:16:530:16:57

the change of heart?

Rents are high,

business rates are high, but dealers

0:16:570:17:02

own a lot of their properties.

Probably 70% they own it, so that

0:17:020:17:06

takes quite a high risk out of it.

But not all department stores are

0:17:060:17:10

that lucky. This is London's Oxford

Street. It is where all the big

0:17:100:17:14

names have their flagship stores.

But the buildings are big, with too

0:17:140:17:19

much unprofitable space. House of

Fraser have asked their landlords to

0:17:190:17:23

reduce their rent, and the likes of

Debenhams and Marks & Spencer 's are

0:17:230:17:29

closing stores completely.

Costs are

going up for retailers, and shoppers

0:17:290:17:32

want to go online because it offers

convenience. They can get the lowest

0:17:320:17:36

prices, and they get the lowest

prices because those operators don't

0:17:360:17:39

have the same kind of costs as a

physical store.

The government is

0:17:390:17:44

concerned about the state of the

UK's High Street. It has just set up

0:17:440:17:48

a special panel to investigate how

best to adapt to that changes in the

0:17:480:17:53

wake we shop. It is being led by

Richard Penny Cook, the chairman of

0:17:530:17:57

department store Fenech.

Department

stores are about theatre and

0:17:570:18:02

service, and those are things that

can't be replicated online. So I

0:18:020:18:07

think there is a really good future

for department stores, but it is all

0:18:070:18:11

about making sure that we are

providing something different, which

0:18:110:18:13

makes the visit worthwhile --

Fenwick.

It will have to be

0:18:130:18:20

something very different to get us

off the internet and into the high

0:18:200:18:24

street.

0:18:240:18:24

We will be back with

the headlines at 6:30am.

0:18:240:18:26

Now it is time for the Film Review,

with Jane Hill and Jason Solomons.

0:18:260:18:29

Hello, and welcome to

The Film Review on BBC News.

0:18:450:18:48

To take us through this week's

cinema releases is Jason Solomons.

0:18:480:18:51

Good to see you, Jason.

0:18:510:18:52

What have you been watching?

0:18:520:18:56

This week, we'll go

to raiding and cliffhanging

0:18:560:18:58

with the new Lara Croft

in Tomb Raider.

0:18:580:19:00

Look at the meaning of art

and find our inner ape in Swedish

0:19:000:19:04

satire The Square.

0:19:040:19:09

And we dip into biblical times

for the real story of Mary Magdalen,

0:19:090:19:13

as played by Rooney Mara,

opposite Joaquin Phoenix as Jesus.

0:19:130:19:20

What a mixture!

0:19:200:19:22

Tomb Raider is back.

0:19:220:19:23

Did they need to remake this?

0:19:230:19:25

Well, it wasn't very

good the first time!

0:19:250:19:27

Often they do remakes of things that

are really good and you think,

0:19:270:19:31

'why have they ruined it'?

0:19:310:19:32

But they may be trying

to get this right,

0:19:320:19:35

because Angelina Jolie's Lara Croft

has dated terribly -

0:19:350:19:37

the effects are bad

and it was never quite right.

0:19:370:19:40

Tomb Raider was sort of a teenage

fever dream for many boys who used

0:19:400:19:44

to play that as a game

when it was early computer games,

0:19:440:19:47

and they've now changed the whole

figure of Lara Croft for this

0:19:470:19:50

new actress, who I happen

to think is fantastic.

0:19:500:19:53

She's beautiful, gorgeous,

and she has got this strength

0:19:530:19:55

to her and balletic,

which she needs, because she has

0:19:550:19:58

done a lot of running in this movie.

0:19:580:20:06

She is slumming it in Shoreditch

when we start this, but then we find

0:20:060:20:09

out she is the daughter

of a billionaire, who is played

0:20:090:20:12

in a flashback.

0:20:120:20:13

She has to go and sign

the papers which means

0:20:130:20:16

that she will inherit his fortune.

0:20:160:20:24

That was Dad's?

0:20:270:20:28

Yes, Miss Croft.

0:20:280:20:30

According to his will,

I was supposed to give it to you.

0:20:300:20:36

And, technically speaking,

you are meant to sign

0:20:360:20:41

the papers first.

0:20:410:20:47

I could never understand

your father's obsession

0:20:470:20:49

with those things.

0:20:490:20:53

I can't believe how many of those

were lying around the house.

0:20:530:20:56

There's got to be

some purpose to it.

0:20:560:20:58

The first letter from

my final destination.

0:20:580:21:06

But he didn't leave a letter.

0:21:260:21:31

Well, they've got all the great

British actors in there as well.

0:21:310:21:34

They've lined them all up!

0:21:340:21:36

They are only in it

for a bit, I have to say -

0:21:360:21:39

for the money, I think!

0:21:390:21:41

She goes off on her quest -

this is a quest movie.

0:21:410:21:44

She goes hunting with clues

that her father has left her.

0:21:440:21:47

These riddles, which you might start

off solving them yourself

0:21:470:21:50

in your head - but don't bother,

because they don't make

0:21:500:21:53

any sense, really!

0:21:530:21:53

It's just another level

of the game that she goes to.

0:21:530:21:56

She goes to Hong Kong,

and then she is pursued,

0:21:560:21:59

which is all very good,

then she has to go to a remote

0:21:590:22:03

Japanese island on a ship,

and survive a storm,

0:22:030:22:05

going down a waterfall

and solving another puzzle.

0:22:050:22:07

She does a lot of jumping and then

she does a lot of dangling.

0:22:070:22:15

LAUGHTER.

0:22:220:22:22

You know, it's a bit krypton factor!

0:22:220:22:24

Considering the indignities heaped

upon her and ridiculous scenarios

0:22:240:22:26

thrown at her, I was mesmerised

by how brilliant she is at this.

0:22:260:22:30

She brings a balletic

strength to it.

0:22:300:22:32

She's got great abs,

fantastic skills with a bow

0:22:320:22:34

and arrow, and she's far,

far better than the film she is in.

0:22:340:22:38

I wondered whether you

were getting to that.

0:22:380:22:40

She is great, but is it worth

seeing apart from her?

0:22:400:22:43

It's very kinetic, the best I can

say for it is it keeps hurling stuff

0:22:430:22:47

at poor Alicia Vikander.

0:22:470:22:48

But the climatic tomb raid

is almost laughable -

0:22:480:22:51

it looks like something that you get

on the back of the cereal packet!

0:22:510:22:54

It's like, is that what this

has all been about?!

0:22:540:22:57

Maybe there will be more

Tomb Raiders and maybe

0:22:570:23:00

they will get them better!

0:23:000:23:01

They will keep trying.

0:23:010:23:09

I'm loving the sound of the next

one, it sounds intriguing.

0:23:110:23:15

It won the Palm d'Or at Cannes,

and has taken a year to get here,

0:23:150:23:19

but it was nominated

as Best Foreign-Language Film

0:23:190:23:21

at the Baftas.

0:23:210:23:27

Much of it was not in Swedish.

0:23:270:23:29

Elisabeth Moss is in this.

0:23:290:23:31

It features one of the great

scenes of the year,

0:23:310:23:34

which we are seeing here.

0:23:340:23:35

An American actor

comes in as an artist.

0:23:350:23:38

It is an art world satire.

0:23:380:23:46

This is an art gallery

benefit dinner.

0:23:470:23:49

He comes in to do a performance

piece, but takes it far too far.

0:23:490:23:53

Here he is kind of

goading Dominic West.

0:23:530:23:55

It's about finding art in that era.

0:23:550:23:59

It's a satire on the art world.

0:23:590:24:01

Art that can be dated,

what's the point of art,

0:24:010:24:04

is it ridiculous?

0:24:040:24:05

This is about modern art.

0:24:050:24:06

It's about the curator of this

gallery that we're seeing here.

0:24:060:24:09

He loses his mobile phone,

and his life completely falls

0:24:090:24:12

apart and unravels.

0:24:120:24:13

It really is a sort of film

predicated on that.

0:24:130:24:20

Is that in the category

of 'first-world problems?'!

0:24:200:24:28

It is very much about white male

privilege and what it is to be a man

0:24:290:24:33

in the privileged world.

0:24:330:24:35

Like, here they are in their black

ties, and he is an artist.

0:24:350:24:38

This scene goes on for 11 minutes,

and you can't stop watching.

0:24:380:24:41

It's extraordinary, but you don't

go how to react to it.

0:24:410:24:44

It's all about, what would

you do in that situation?

0:24:440:24:47

It keeps throwing moral

quandaries at you.

0:24:470:24:49

It's very funny, but also

very thought-provoking,

0:24:490:24:50

perhaps a bit too thought-provoking,

like the monkey poking Dominic West

0:24:500:24:53

in the ear.

0:24:530:24:56

You have been to see

Mary Magdalen as well.

0:24:560:24:58

It's Easter coming up,

time for a Passion story.

0:24:580:25:00

This is reported to tell

for the first time the story

0:25:000:25:03

of Mary Magdalen, who has been cast

as a prostitute since Pope Gregory

0:25:030:25:07

in 591 declared that

she was a prostitute,

0:25:070:25:09

which is apparently

wrong - she wasn't.

0:25:090:25:11

This film aims to correct that

and show the Jesus story

0:25:110:25:14

through the eyes of the only female

disciple, Mary Magdalen,

0:25:140:25:17

played by Rooney Mara,

who leaves her fishing village

0:25:170:25:19

and follows the son of God.

0:25:190:25:27

Mary.

0:25:490:25:56

Each of you stand at the threshold.

0:25:560:25:59

Do you fear that you will

never reach the kingdom?

0:25:590:26:02

Whose kingdom?

0:26:020:26:05

You know as well as I do,

there's only one true kingdom.

0:26:050:26:08

And that is God.

0:26:080:26:12

And God's kingdom has taken root.

0:26:120:26:18

So we must prepare.

0:26:180:26:21

We must wash away the stains

of your corruption.

0:26:210:26:27

And be born anew.

0:26:270:26:29

Like children.

0:26:290:26:34

I have been hidden for too long.

0:26:340:26:40

I'm not sure what to say about that!

0:26:400:26:43

You can see why her father would be

upset if she went to follow him,

0:26:430:26:47

this kind of hairy bloke

who's really boring!

0:26:470:26:49

Whatever you think about the Bible,

there's no denying it's got some

0:26:490:26:52

great lines in it.

0:26:520:26:53

Why this film hasn't got any

of them is a mystery to me.

0:26:530:26:57

It is extraordinarily dull.

0:26:570:26:58

Is it a long couple of hours?

0:26:580:27:00

Absolutely so dull you

would not believe it!

0:27:000:27:03

It even looks dull, it has got this

tablecloth fashion with the stones

0:27:030:27:06

everywhere in the desert.

0:27:060:27:07

At one stage it was the greatest

story ever told, when it was in

0:27:070:27:11

Hollywood, now it's just the most

boring story ever told.

0:27:110:27:14

It's extraordinary what it does,

trying to rectify it and make it

0:27:140:27:17

a story for a new age,

kind of a story for everyone -

0:27:170:27:21

it won't offend Catholics,

Christians, Jews, Muslims

0:27:210:27:23

or even atheists.

0:27:230:27:30

Is it trying to be too careful,

is that part of the problem?

0:27:400:27:43

It is trying to tiptoe

over any heresy.

0:27:430:27:45

People boycotted

Martin Scorcese's film.

0:27:450:27:47

Any film that makes you cry

for Mel Gibson has got it wrong!

0:27:470:27:50

It also makes you think

of Monty Python all the time!

0:27:500:27:53

There are scenes when people

are going, 'Messiah,

0:27:530:27:55

Messiah'!

0:27:550:27:56

You know what, he's not the Messiah!

0:27:560:27:58

I do wish you'd say

what you really think,

0:27:580:28:01

Jason!

0:28:010:28:02

So that's a long two hours,

and we'll leave it at that!

0:28:020:28:05

I don't think this will make a lot

of money at the box office, either.

0:28:050:28:10

I think faith-based audiences

will go and be completely mystified

0:28:100:28:12

as to what this was about.

0:28:120:28:14

It is a Passion of the Christ

without any passion.

0:28:140:28:17

What should we be going to see?

0:28:170:28:20

You've got to see Black Panther.

0:28:200:28:22

And you've got to see

it now at the cinema.

0:28:220:28:25

It is becoming a cultural event -

people are seeing it four or five

0:28:250:28:28

times, it has broken

records at the box office,

0:28:280:28:31

it is changing the way that

audiences are going,

0:28:310:28:33

black audiences are flocking to it,

families are enjoying

0:28:330:28:36

the representation.

0:28:360:28:36

It is a great superhero

movie, it's sexy, it's

0:28:360:28:39

exciting, it's funny.

0:28:390:28:40

People are hollering

at it in the cinema.

0:28:400:28:42

If you haven't been to a Marvel

movie in the cinema,

0:28:420:28:45

this is the one to go and see.

0:28:450:28:53

And DVD of the week

is also so lovely.

0:28:580:29:01

I will admit, I cried

at Paddington 2!

0:29:010:29:03

But it's a delight,

it's an absolute sweet,

0:29:030:29:05

delightful, charming,

sometimes silly, but just

0:29:050:29:07

lovely, lovely, lovely.

0:29:070:29:08

Beautifully done...

0:29:080:29:08

He is in his little

outfits, wondering around.

0:29:080:29:10

Paddington didn't win

Best British Film at the Baftas,

0:29:100:29:13

that went to Three billboards.

0:29:130:29:14

This is one of the best British

films we've ever made.

0:29:140:29:17

And how good is Hugh Grant?!

0:29:170:29:19

He's fantastic!

He is.

0:29:190:29:20

And Sally Hawkins is great in it,

the whole Brown family,

0:29:200:29:23

the whole look of it is perfect.

0:29:230:29:25

It's a work of genius,

Paddington two.

0:29:250:29:27

And when did you cry?!

0:29:270:29:35

I cried at the end!

0:29:420:29:43

I'm not going to give anything away

for anyone who hasn't been

0:29:430:29:47

to see it.

0:29:470:29:51

If you want a marmalade sandwich,

you can't have one!

0:29:510:29:54

It's very sweet, wonderful.

0:29:540:29:55

A mixed week, but

an interesting one.

0:29:550:29:57

Jason, good to see you, thank you.

0:29:570:29:59

That's it for this week.

0:29:590:30:00

Enjoy your cinema-going

and your DVD watching.

0:30:000:30:02

It's terrific, honestly!

0:30:020:30:03

Thanks for being with us.

0:30:030:30:04

Goodbye.

0:30:040:30:08

Hello, this is Breakfast

with Naga Munchetty

0:30:240:30:26

and Charlie Stayt.

0:30:260:30:27

Good Morning, here's a summary

0:30:270:30:29

of today's main stories from BBC

News.

0:30:290:30:30

Police investigating the murder

of a Russian man in London say

0:30:300:30:33

they have begun contacting other

0:30:330:30:35

Russian exiles in Britain

to discuss their safety.

0:30:350:30:37

Forensics teams have continued

working at the home of 68-year-old

0:30:370:30:40

Nikolai Glushkov, who was

found dead on Monday.

0:30:400:30:42

But police say at this stage,

it is not being connected

0:30:420:30:45

to the poisoning of former

Russian spy Sergei Skripal

0:30:450:30:48

and his daughter in Salisbury.

0:30:480:30:51

John McManus reports.

0:30:510:30:54

68-year-old Nikolai Glushkov,

found dead at his home on this

0:30:540:31:01

unassuming road in south-west

London on Monday.

0:31:010:31:03

But Mr Glushkov's life

was anything but ordinary.

0:31:030:31:06

The post mortem has revealed

he was murdered, killed

0:31:060:31:10

by compression to the neck.

0:31:100:31:11

Unusually counterterrorism

police are leading

0:31:110:31:18

the investigation because of

Mr Glushkov's past links.

0:31:180:31:20

In the 1990s he was the director

of Russian airline

0:31:200:31:24

Aeroflot,

0:31:240:31:28

But was jailed after being found

guilty of fraud and

0:31:280:31:31

money-laundering.

0:31:310:31:35

He sought political asylum in the UK

and was still being sued by Russia.

0:31:350:31:38

He was friends with Russian

businessmen Boris Berezovsky

0:31:380:31:40

who was found hanged in 2013.

0:31:400:31:42

An open verdict was

recorded but Mr Glushkov

0:31:420:31:44

believed he had been murdered.

0:31:440:31:46

The deaths of 14 other Russians who

died in the UK in what may be

0:31:460:31:52

suspicious circumstances are being

re-examined.

0:31:520:31:56

Some observers believe

it is time to join

0:31:560:31:58

the dots.

0:31:580:31:59

Mr Glushkov's death fits

into a wider pattern of the last 12

0:31:590:32:03

years of Kremlin opponents

dropping dead across Europe.

0:32:030:32:05

The consequences for the Kremlin

of this were limited

0:32:050:32:07

to far too long.

0:32:070:32:10

The UK response has recently

been much stronger,

0:32:100:32:15

but there is still

awful lot we could do.

0:32:150:32:19

The former PR executive, Lord Bell,

a friend of Mr Glushkov,

0:32:190:32:22

has

told the BBC he suspects

0:32:220:32:23

he was killed after being deemed

a traitor by the Russian state.

0:32:230:32:27

Police say that at

present there is no link

0:32:270:32:29

between the murder in London

and the poisoning of Sergei Skripal

0:32:290:32:32

and his daughter in Salisbury.

0:32:320:32:34

But some Russian exiles

are being contacted

0:32:340:32:35

about their safety.

0:32:350:32:43

Police have launched a murder

investigation after two women

0:32:500:32:52

were shot and killed

at a house in East Sussex.

0:32:520:32:55

Officers were called to an address

in St Leonards-on-Sea last night.

0:32:550:32:58

A man has been arrested.

0:32:580:33:00

The victims were known to the

suspect, police they are not for

0:33:000:33:03

anyone else in connection to the

shooting.

0:33:030:33:09

More than 100 flights to and

0:33:090:33:11

from Heathrow have been cancelled

YouTube bad weather. Drivers are

0:33:110:33:20

being asked to avoid trans Pennine

roads.

0:33:200:33:23

The former deputy director

of the FBI, Andrew McCabe,

0:33:230:33:25

has been dramatically fired,

just hours before he was due

0:33:250:33:28

to formally retire.

0:33:280:33:29

Mr McCabe

0:33:290:33:31

said his sacking had been

politically motivated,

0:33:310:33:33

and claimed it was part of a wider

effort to taint the FBI

0:33:330:33:36

and discredit the

intelligence community.

0:33:360:33:37

Mr Trump tweeted it had been

a "great day for democracy".

0:33:370:33:40

The number of hospital admissions

due to older people falling

0:33:400:33:43

is expected to rise to nearly 1,000

a day by the end of the decade.

0:33:430:33:47

That's according to figures obtained

by the Local Government Association.

0:33:470:33:50

It's prompted calls for more funding

for adult social care.

0:33:500:33:54

It might have been panned by some

critics, but Hugh Jackman's movie

0:33:540:33:57

musical 'The Greatest Showman'

continues to dominate the cinema

0:33:570:34:00

and music charts -

sitting at the top of the UK album

0:34:000:34:04

chart for ten weeks.

0:34:040:34:12

The film is loosely based

on the life of circus impresario

0:34:130:34:17

PT Barnum - aka

The Greatest Showman.

0:34:170:34:20

The only other album that's managed

to spend longer at the top spot

0:34:200:34:24

in the UK in the last 30

years is Adele's 21,

0:34:240:34:27

which managed 11 weeks at the top.

0:34:270:34:34

Those are the main story this

morning. That film is like a crabby

0:34:340:34:39

film, which is why it has been so

popular, because so many people have

0:34:390:34:45

just thought, I don't want any more

misery, I just want happiness. And

0:34:450:34:50

there will be some great happiness

0:34:500:34:53

misery, I just want happiness. And

there will be some great happiness

0:34:530:34:54

today in the rugby, if this colour

comes out on top. What a St

0:34:540:34:57

Patrick's Day that would be.

0:34:570:35:00

Ireland face England at Twickenham,

normally a fortress for Eddie Jones'

0:35:000:35:04

side - but they've had

their problems throughout

0:35:040:35:09

the tournament,

as Joe Wilson reports.

0:35:090:35:17

Twickenham on Friday revealed the

seats, they always green not for St

0:35:180:35:23

Patrick's Day. But here Ireland six

since nations perfection. First they

0:35:230:35:28

beat France. Lastgasp in Paris. The

second win was against Italy. Next

0:35:280:35:34

Wales were beaten in Dublin. Four

more tries beat Scotland which

0:35:340:35:38

leaves just England, five wins and a

grandslam.

Everyone is aware of the

0:35:380:35:44

significance it has four Irish rugby

in this group of players, but there

0:35:440:35:51

is nervous energy but it is very

exciting.

Ireland did the grandslam

0:35:510:35:55

nine years ago by the early other

time they achieved this feat was

0:35:550:35:58

1948. There was no commentary,

Ireland in grave. If Ireland are

0:35:580:36:03

here to try and make history,

England are certainly trying to find

0:36:030:36:07

a future. Coach Eddie Jones week

apologising about a leadership

0:36:070:36:12

speech filmed last year when he

bantered about island being

0:36:120:36:16

"Scummy". He has made radical

changes to his team to play Ireland,

0:36:160:36:22

often selections speak louder than

words.

Any team that wins 11 games

0:36:220:36:24

in a row are worthy champions of the

Six Nations. We are very respectful

0:36:240:36:29

of them, they have weakness like any

team.

England's weaknesses have been

0:36:290:36:34

starkly exposed in two consecutive

defeats. Eddie Jones has never lost

0:36:340:36:38

with England at Twickenham and that

is part of the fascination tomorrow.

0:36:380:36:41

Tickets offered for crazy sums,

grandslam seats a grand each.

0:36:410:36:51

England's women ended

their Six Nations with victory over

0:36:520:36:54

Ireland - but they finished

runners up to France.

0:36:540:36:57

It finished 33-11 to England

at the Ricoh Arena -

0:36:570:36:59

Danielle Waterman becoming

the nation's leading try-scorer

0:36:590:37:01

with 47 - she's now just two tries

short of Rory Underwood's overall

0:37:010:37:05

England record.

0:37:050:37:05

France took the title

with victory over Wales.

0:37:050:37:12

Medals have proved elusive

for Great Britain on the penultimate

0:37:120:37:15

day of competition at

the Winter Paralympics.

0:37:150:37:17

Let's go over to Pyeongchang now,

and our reporter Kate Grey -

0:37:170:37:20

bring us up to date, Kate.

0:37:200:37:26

It has been a quiet day for Great

Britain on the eighth day of action

0:37:260:37:30

here in Pyeongchang, just to make

this athlete in action. James

0:37:300:37:35

Whitley went in the standing slalom

in the alpine skiing, he finished

0:37:350:37:38

10th in the end in what was a very

tough course and a very competitive

0:37:380:37:42

category with lots of mistakes made

by athletes higher up than him, but

0:37:420:37:46

he could not quite improved on his

performance, finishing 10th, but it

0:37:460:37:51

is his best performance at the

Paralympic games, he did compete at

0:37:510:37:54

in Sochi where he finished 14th and

15. An improvement but no medals for

0:37:540:37:59

the 20-year-old. Great Britain also

had an athlete over at the

0:37:590:38:03

cross-country skiing, he went in the

7.5 kilometre race. He came to these

0:38:030:38:07

games just hoping to gain some

experience, he only got into the

0:38:070:38:11

sport 18 months ago and hoping to

make it to the Beijing 2022 games.

0:38:110:38:15

And he finished 14th today, so great

experience for him, who will be

0:38:150:38:21

hoping to improve in his next games.

There was gold for South Korea in

0:38:210:38:26

that event, the first time South

Korea have won a Paralympic gold, a

0:38:260:38:31

great result for the home nation

here and date to get a gold medal.

0:38:310:38:35

Lots of mixed emotions, Great

Britain, the visually impaired women

0:38:350:38:47

will go in the slalom where Great

Britain will have their last attempt

0:38:470:38:51

at winning a medal.

Thank you very

much. If you thought you had seen it

0:38:510:38:59

all from Jose Marino, you are wrong.

He gave a 12 minute answer his press

0:38:590:39:05

conference yesterday defending

Manchester United 's Mac shop exit

0:39:050:39:08

in the Champions League. Here is

just a snippet of this rant.

I am

0:39:080:39:13

not going to cry, because I heard a

bit of building, I am not going to

0:39:130:39:19

disappear, when I was 20 years old I

was nobody in football, and now at

0:39:190:39:27

505I am what I am, I did what I did,

because of work, because of my

0:39:270:39:31

talent and because of my mentality.

I could be in another country with

0:39:310:39:35

the league in the pocket, the kind

of lead you win even before the

0:39:350:39:44

league starts, but I am here.

He is

the kind of many wouldn't interrupt,

0:39:440:39:50

you are just let it go. TV gold.

Could you imagine interrupting him,

0:39:500:40:00

you would not want to do it.

0:40:000:40:07

It was a frustrating evening

for Hibernian as they missed

0:40:100:40:13

the chance to go third

in the Scottish Premiership.

0:40:130:40:15

Hibs went ahead

in the second minute,

0:40:150:40:17

had their keeper sent off not long

after, and held out until the final

0:40:170:40:21

stages when Chris Kane

equalised for St Johnstone.

0:40:210:40:23

We'll see video assistant referees

used at this summer's World Cup

0:40:230:40:26

in Russia after Fifa approved

the controversial system.

0:40:260:40:34

It's been trialled in the FA Cup

this season but has been criticised

0:40:340:40:37

by many for taking too

long and being overused.

0:40:370:40:40

It allows referees to consult

an official with access to video

0:40:400:40:43

replays in order to

make key decisions.

0:40:430:40:50

The Cheltenham Gold Cup

is one of the biggest racing events

0:40:500:40:53

of the year - and we got a contest

which lived up to that billing.

0:40:530:40:57

It was, literally, a two horse race

with Native River holding off

0:40:570:41:00

the favourite Might Bite.

0:41:000:41:02

That gave jockey Richard Johnson his

second Gold Cup triump -

0:41:020:41:05

and a first for trainer

Colin Tizzard.

0:41:050:41:12

And it seems that Kevin Pietersen

might have finally hung

0:41:120:41:14

up his bat.

0:41:140:41:17

He tweeted 'Boots Up.

Thank you' after playing

0:41:170:41:20

for Quetta Gladiators

0:41:200:41:20

in the Pakistan Super League.

0:41:200:41:22

The former England captain had

indicated the tournament

0:41:220:41:24

would be his last.

0:41:240:41:25

The second of our commonwealth games

previews. Last week Michael went to

0:41:250:41:28

meet the youngest game -- youngest's

athlete, what 11-year-old tennis

0:41:280:41:31

player, and this week he has been to

meet one of the oldest.

0:41:310:41:41

David Calvert from Northern Ireland.

0:41:410:41:42

He's heading to his 11th games

to compete in the highest calibre

0:41:420:41:45

shooting event, full bore rifle.

0:41:450:41:47

Before he left Mike joined David

and his partner in Surrey -

0:41:470:41:50

although it was more like Siberia.

0:41:500:41:53

He is arguably the best in the world

will stop you a matter target which

0:42:040:42:10

could be 900 metres away. A little

black. On the horizon, a bull's-eye

0:42:100:42:14

the size of a dinner plate, and yet

conditions more aching to Siberia,

0:42:140:42:18

David Calvert-Jones now in his 60s,

is going to his 11 commonwealth

0:42:180:42:23

games, will hit 99% of the time.

It

is a sport that you can start in

0:42:230:42:29

your teens and continue well past

normal retirement age, you can

0:42:290:42:34

compete and be competitive the

decades. It is the challenge of the

0:42:340:42:40

wind effect and also the skills of

firing a good shot.

There is a

0:42:400:42:49

crack, you see the splash of the

sound can you feel the buzz in the

0:42:490:42:53

target, you pull it down, it could

be a stomach muscles.

Give it

0:42:530:42:57

another push, and at this point

there would be another hole in the

0:42:570:43:01

target. The maximum possible score

in the individual commonwealth game

0:43:010:43:10

event is 405 points. David scored

404 to set the record.

Wow. David is

0:43:100:43:17

used to being carried to the podium,

as is the tradition in fullbore

0:43:170:43:22

rifle shooting, having won four

commonwealth golds for his native

0:43:220:43:25

Northern Ireland and four bronze.

It

is regarded as a blue-ribbon event

0:43:250:43:29

by quite a few in the sport of

shooting, partly because of the

0:43:290:43:33

heritage colour is where it all

started back in 1860, with the award

0:43:330:43:37

of the Queens prize by Queen

Victoria.

Never been that

0:43:370:43:41

comfortable around large bangs but

what worried me most as I was

0:43:410:43:44

invited to take a shot in this high

calibre sport is how far the bullet

0:43:440:43:48

can travel in that wind.

Fresh winds

today would blow the bullet by ten

0:43:480:43:53

feet.

It is why in pairs you rely on

your partner to help you line up

0:43:530:43:59

your shots.

Line up the sites...

Take your time.

It is all about

0:43:590:44:08

mental strength under pressure.

Ready when you are. To squeeze

0:44:080:44:12

gently.

You do feel a slight, once

it is pushing to your shoulder, the

0:44:120:44:18

whole body takes it.

The shop that

is showing is a simple bull's-eye. I

0:44:180:44:28

would stop while you are ahead.

I

will leave it there, to 25-year-old

0:44:280:44:33

Jack Alexander to partner David at

the Commonwealth Games.

Privilege to

0:44:330:44:38

shoot alongside David, and are not

many people in the game who would be

0:44:380:44:43

at the top of their game for as long

as David had, he is passing on his

0:44:430:44:48

knowledge and enjoys me doing well

as well.

All that Jack and David are

0:44:480:44:54

aiming for now is a Commonwealth

golds.

0:44:540:45:01

That is amazing, isn't it?

It is

such a precision game, but also in

0:45:080:45:13

the cold, which won't be a problem

in Australia!

900 metres, I hope

0:45:130:45:18

there was nothing behind the target

when he was shooting.

Everyone was

0:45:180:45:22

giving him a very wide earth. And

Mike is looking forward to... Is he

0:45:220:45:30

going out?

He will be at the

Commonwealth Games for the duration

0:45:300:45:34

of the games, starting in two weeks

because time. -- two weeks' time.

0:45:340:45:48

The mini beast from the east is what

we have been told about, and some

0:45:480:45:53

The mini beast from the east is what

we have been told about, and some

0:45:530:45:53

really low temperatures. It will

feel very cold for the next couple

0:45:530:45:56

of days.

0:45:560:45:57

Here is Helen Willetts with a look

at this morning's weather.

0:45:570:46:02

A real shock to the system, because

yesterday it felt so mild across the

0:46:020:46:06

central half of the country. Today

will be 10 degrees down, and we are

0:46:060:46:11

concerning ourselves with ice from

the morning and slow as we go

0:46:110:46:15

through the day to day will out from

the weather office, much more detail

0:46:150:46:20

on the website. I will try and take

you through it. The high pressure

0:46:200:46:24

across Scandinavia is sinking

southwards, allowing the mini beast

0:46:240:46:28

from the east, pushing the cold air,

the Siberian air back across the

0:46:280:46:33

country. We also have weather fronts

to complicated, so the weather front

0:46:330:46:37

sinking southwards through the

Midlands and East Anglia at the

0:46:370:46:40

moment. As a drift south it will

turn progressively to snow, light

0:46:400:46:44

snow initially. Showers following

across the north-east of England,

0:46:440:46:48

the Midlands, and later the south

and east, causing concern. That is

0:46:480:46:52

where we have the amber warnings. It

is cold out there, and it will be

0:46:520:46:56

bitterly cold today because of the

strength of the wind. It will feel

0:46:560:47:00

like -6 minus seven. The fewest

showers across Northern Ireland in

0:47:000:47:08

the western fringes of Scotland,

England in particular, perhaps

0:47:170:47:20

north-west England as well. Let's

focus on the amber warnings. We are

0:47:200:47:23

concerned for several centimetres

building up across parts of

0:47:230:47:25

Lincolnshire, Yorkshire, right

across the North Midlands, possibly

0:47:250:47:28

as far west is north Wales. Those

showers will keep going, and across

0:47:280:47:32

the south-east of England, during

the day and overnight. Overnight as

0:47:320:47:34

well is the added complication of a

longer spell of rain across southern

0:47:340:47:38

England and south Wales. Those are

the main areas concerned, but we

0:47:380:47:41

could see snow showers just about

anywhere and we could see rather icy

0:47:410:47:44

conditions where that snow has

fallen. Through the evening and

0:47:440:47:48

overnight you can see the snow

showers continuing to feed in on

0:47:480:47:50

strong to gale force winds. Here is

the more significant is no

0:47:500:47:54

potentially in the south. Big

question marks as to how large that

0:47:540:47:57

area will be, how far north and west

it will go. It will be bitterly cold

0:47:570:48:02

anyway tonight, so where we have

seen any rain, sleet was no, it will

0:48:020:48:05

turn quite icy. We could wake up to

a covering of snow across many

0:48:050:48:09

southern areas, more so across the

Central Lowlands overnight and at

0:48:090:48:12

first tomorrow. I think we have a

few showers continuing, another

0:48:120:48:16

really cold day. Where we have had

this know it will be lying around

0:48:160:48:19

because of that strong to gale force

winds, and temperatures will again

0:48:190:48:22

reach above freezing. But he added

on effect of the wind, it will feel

0:48:220:48:26

bitterly cold. It will probably just

be small, a mini beast from the

0:48:260:48:30

east, because we start to cut off

this easily feared is we go into

0:48:300:48:35

next week. And instead we pull in a

northerly. That is not that much

0:48:350:48:39

warmer, but it cuts off the really

bitterly cold air from Siberia. I

0:48:390:48:42

will keep you updated through the

morning.

Thank you very much, we

0:48:420:48:47

will see you later.

0:48:470:48:48

We will be back with

the headlines at 7:00am.

0:48:480:48:51

Now it's time for Click,

and the team are looking at how

0:48:510:48:53

Now it's time for Click,

and the team are looking at how

0:48:530:48:54

technology could transform

the health service.

0:48:540:48:56

For almost 70 years,

the UK's National Health Service has

0:48:560:48:57

For almost 70 years,

the UK's National Health Service has

0:49:140:49:16

been a free service

at the point of care.

0:49:160:49:20

But that model is under strain

as the population ages and chronic

0:49:200:49:24

health conditions increase

while resources shrink.

0:49:240:49:29

A recent study by the Royal College

of Physicians showed that almost two

0:49:290:49:33

thirds of doctors think that patient

safety has deteriorated with one

0:49:330:49:36

doctor saying we are not robots.

0:49:360:49:37

We are human staff with limits.

0:49:370:49:40

Should the NHS turn to robots

to ease the strain on human staff?

0:49:400:49:44

Jane has been looking at how data

driven technology could transform

0:49:440:49:47

care in the NHS.

0:49:470:49:54

Could artificial intelligence

help save the NHS?

0:49:540:49:57

More people are looking

at innovative ways to ease

0:49:570:50:00

the workload of doctors and nurses.

0:50:000:50:04

Computer programmes can rapidly

analyse huge quantities

0:50:040:50:07

of information in ways that humans

do not have the time nor brain

0:50:070:50:11

capacity to do.

0:50:110:50:13

In 2016, Click filmed

Google's Deep Mind at

0:50:130:50:16

Moorfield's Eye Hospital.

0:50:160:50:17

They were developing an algorithm

to identify abnormalities

0:50:170:50:19

in eye scans.

0:50:190:50:23

I am going to see three other

projects integrating AI and data

0:50:230:50:26

collection for monitoring,

automation and decreasing waiting

0:50:260:50:28

times.

0:50:280:50:33

Dementia is now the leading

cause of death in the UK.

0:50:330:50:37

At the Manor Hospital in Coventry,

software is being tested to remotely

0:50:370:50:40

monitor patients

on the dementia ward.

0:50:400:50:44

This is one of the

rooms on the ward.

0:50:440:50:47

It looks like any other hospital

room except in this one

0:50:470:50:50

there are two infrared illuminators

and an optical sensor

0:50:500:50:53

monitoring my movements

including when I'm asleep.

0:50:530:51:00

Oxehealth uses a standard digital

camera and the tongue-twisting

0:51:000:51:02

science of photoplethysmography.

0:51:020:51:05

Every time your heart beats,

your skin briefly flashes red.

0:51:050:51:08

We can not see this but the sensor

in the camera can detect

0:51:080:51:12

these so-called microblushes.

0:51:120:51:17

It even picks up my vital signs

when I am hiding under a table

0:51:170:51:20

in the room as those microblushes

can still be seen on my arm.

0:51:200:51:24

There is an alert if I leave my bed.

0:51:240:51:27

And the nurse can click on a live

feed to see what is happening

0:51:270:51:30

and determine whether they need

to come and check on me right away.

0:51:300:51:34

For the staff, initially,

when it looked like we had a camera

0:51:340:51:37

in a box in a room,

they were not happy about it.

0:51:370:51:40

But when we spent some

time with Oxehealth,

0:51:400:51:43

they explained to them

and they see how it works,

0:51:430:51:45

they love it.

0:51:450:51:47

They love the fact it

gives you an extra...

0:51:470:51:50

An extra support.

0:51:500:51:54

The project is in the pilot stage

and is awaiting medical

0:51:540:51:57

certification.

0:51:570:51:58

The data collected is being analysed

remotely by a team in Oxford

0:51:580:52:01

and will be used to train

the programme to be more predictive.

0:52:010:52:08

We have never had this

capability as a species,

0:52:080:52:11

to constantly get heart rate,

breathing rate, movement

0:52:110:52:13

and routine data.

0:52:130:52:14

There is no reason as we combine

and we fuse the data using AI

0:52:140:52:17

we cannot detect the onset

of dementia or prevent

0:52:170:52:20

it getting worse.

0:52:200:52:21

We can detect problems early

so you can stay in your own home

0:52:210:52:24

or a comfortable setting

without coming into hospital.

0:52:240:52:26

That will save a huge

amount of time.

0:52:260:52:30

Saving critical time

was the motivation behind automating

0:52:300:52:32

processes at NHS

Blood and Transplant.

0:52:320:52:36

4,500 people receive

a transplant each year,

0:52:360:52:39

but 6,500 are on the list.

0:52:390:52:41

Every day, three people die

waiting for a transplant.

0:52:410:52:44

A lot of information needs

to be sifted through to

0:52:440:52:46

make life-and-death decisions.

0:52:460:52:51

The NHS is now using public cloud

technology from IBM to help maintain

0:52:510:52:54

huge databases that used to be

managed with a marker

0:52:540:52:57

and a whiteboard.

0:52:570:53:01

By working with some of this

automated technology we can make

0:53:010:53:04

sure we are making the best possible

decisions and that our clinical

0:53:040:53:07

teams are thinking through the best

outcomes for all of the patients

0:53:070:53:10

on the transplant waiting list,

and that our staff, who are often

0:53:100:53:13

working until three in the morning

in a high-pressure environment,

0:53:130:53:16

needing to allocate organs

quickly, they are supported

0:53:160:53:18

by this technology.

0:53:180:53:22

In the future, the team hopes that

artificial intelligence will be able

0:53:220:53:26

to predict how long people will be

on the waiting list for an organ.

0:53:260:53:29

There is an average waiting time

of two weeks to see a doctor

0:53:290:53:33

in the UK.

0:53:330:53:35

This can drop to two hours

if you register with GP At Hand.

0:53:350:53:38

You can sign up if you live or work

within certain zones of London.

0:53:380:53:42

You need to give up your regular

practice doctor and register with GP

0:53:420:53:46

At Hand's remote surgery.

0:53:460:53:49

26,000 people have

registered so far.

0:53:490:53:52

I had a chance to test it out,

pretending I had a case

0:53:520:53:56

of food poisoning.

0:53:560:53:57

First I went through a triage

with a chat bot on the app

0:53:570:54:00

who recommended I speak remotely

to a real-life human doctor.

0:54:000:54:03

The doctor recommends further care

and can even send a prescription

0:54:030:54:06

to a pharmacy.

0:54:060:54:11

The artificial intelligence

in the app draws on billions of data

0:54:110:54:14

points and can cross reference

the latest medical research

0:54:140:54:16

from journals and studies

around the world.

0:54:160:54:22

You use artificial intelligence

to tell you whether or not

0:54:220:54:25

to see a doctor.

0:54:250:54:28

You are always free to see a doctor

anyway but what we find is that 40%

0:54:280:54:32

of the people who get reassured

that they have everything they need,

0:54:320:54:35

they stop there.

0:54:350:54:36

The app has faced criticism

from the Royal College of GPswho say

0:54:360:54:39

that younger users are being cherry

picked for the service.

0:54:390:54:42

NHS England lodged a formal

objection to the planned

0:54:420:54:45

rollout beyond London.

0:54:450:54:52

Whenever anybody comes up

with a great, exciting idea

0:54:520:54:54

they are desperate to see it

rolled out everywhere.

0:54:540:54:57

I would say we need to give people

safe, fair and equitable care.

0:54:570:55:00

If we roll things out too quickly

without ensuring that safety

0:55:000:55:03

and fairness, we run the risk

of causing unintended harm.

0:55:030:55:06

So it is wise and sensible that

independent evaluations are now

0:55:060:55:09

going on of these new technologies

so that people can be reassured

0:55:090:55:12

that they are safe and they

are fair for everybody.

0:55:120:55:15

I think it is wrong.

0:55:150:55:16

I genuinely think that slowing down

what people want is just not right.

0:55:160:55:20

I cannot understand why

people are hesitant.

0:55:200:55:22

Often it is because they are

scared of new technology.

0:55:220:55:25

They do not know what

the consequences are.

0:55:250:55:27

And that is fine.

0:55:270:55:28

They need to check that

and reassure themselves.

0:55:280:55:30

There is nothing wrong with that.

0:55:300:55:36

I have seen three ways companies

are working with data to help

0:55:360:55:41

with monitoring, automation

and decreasing waiting times.

0:55:410:55:42

All areas that could help

an overstressed health service.

0:55:420:55:45

Could artificial intelligence

help to save the NHS?

0:55:450:55:51

It is an exciting development

worldwide but never more

0:55:510:55:53

so than in healthcare

and there are certainly things AI

0:55:530:55:56

can help as we to plough

through data we already have,

0:55:560:55:59

and provide answers

to the questions we didn't even

0:55:590:56:01

know needed answering.

0:56:010:56:02

But let's be clear, AI will never

replace person-to-person

0:56:020:56:05

interaction.

0:56:050:56:11

The touch of a doctor,

the looking deep into someone's eyes

0:56:110:56:14

and recognising their physical,

social and psychological make-up

0:56:140:56:16

of the person is what matters,

not just a bleeding leg

0:56:160:56:19

or a headache.

0:56:190:56:20

It is much more than that and AI,

it will be quite a long time before

0:56:200:56:25

AI comes close.

0:56:250:56:28

You think it ever will?

0:56:280:56:29

I will be stunned if within my

lifetime AI ever replaces a doctor.

0:56:290:56:37

We are going to interrupt this

broadcast with some breaking news

0:56:420:56:45

coming into us here at the BBC.

0:56:450:56:47

It is a world first,

BBC Click presenter Spencer Kelly

0:56:470:56:50

has been replaced by a robot.

0:56:500:56:51

It has been dubbed RoboSpen

and the artifical intelligence

0:56:510:56:54

machine is apparently capable

of a whole host of emotions

0:56:540:56:59

as well as understanding and writing

stories and crucially,

0:56:590:57:01

he never forgets his lines.

0:57:010:57:03

RoboSpen joins the now

from the factory that created him.

0:57:030:57:05

Over to you.

0:57:050:57:11

Sounds like you said

I was artificially intelligent.

0:57:110:57:19

As a robot I am often asked to pose

for photos and TV reports about AI.

0:57:190:57:23

While I am a humaoid robot,

I am not intelligent.

0:57:230:57:26

Everything I am saying

is written by a human.

0:57:260:57:28

The point is, robots and AI

are not the same thing.

0:57:280:57:35

Observe my articulated hands

with four independent fingers

0:57:350:57:38

powered by eight air cylinders.

0:57:380:57:43

Engineering Arts has made a name

for itself by making robotic

0:57:430:57:46

performers, actors

and communicators.

0:57:460:57:47

Which, according to Will,

is pretty much the only reason

0:57:470:57:50

the world might need

humanoid robots.

0:57:500:57:58

Humanoid robots are great

for entertainment and communication,

0:57:590:58:05

if you want something that

interacts with people,

0:58:050:58:12

the best way to do that is to make

something person-shaped.

0:58:130:58:16

So if you think Star Wars, C3P0 -

the robot that talks a lot,

0:58:160:58:20

has a personality, doesn't do

a lot of useful things.

0:58:200:58:24

Will and his team design and build

robots here from scratch

0:58:240:58:27

from the aluminium bones

to the rubbery spines

0:58:270:58:29

and plastic shells.

0:58:290:58:34

While the robots they have made

are more C3P0, the next wave our way

0:58:340:58:38

into the uncanny valley.

0:58:380:58:43

Oh my goodness, it has just come

to life with the eyes there.

0:58:430:58:51

You have seen Silence

of the Lambs, haven't you?

0:58:520:58:54

That is very eerie, that is.

0:58:540:58:57

If you know what I mean.

0:58:570:58:59

Will is fascinated with how

the human body works and a lot

0:58:590:59:03

of this research concentrates

on making natural looking body

0:59:030:59:05

movements that are also very quiet.

0:59:050:59:09

It is something that he believes

might find a place in the field

0:59:090:59:13

of prosthetics, although he says

there is still a lot of work

0:59:130:59:16

to be done.

0:59:160:59:17

I don't have a single

precision part in my body.

0:59:170:59:20

How can I achieve this level

of precision with these organic,

0:59:200:59:23

bones and bits of mushy flesh.

0:59:230:59:24

One of the biggest problems we have

is that there is nothing as good

0:59:240:59:28

as human muscle.

0:59:280:59:30

So for all of this motor

development that we have done,

0:59:300:59:33

we don't come anywhere

near to what a human can do.

0:59:330:59:38

Where you will see humanoid robots,

you will see them in a commercial

0:59:380:59:42

context, so you might go into a shop

and you might see a robot

0:59:420:59:46

in there that is trying

to sell you something.

0:59:460:59:48

Don't worry about all the clever AI,

that's really going to stay

0:59:480:59:52

on your computer, on your

smartphone, on a webpage.

0:59:520:59:57

It's not going chase you up

the stairs any time soon.

0:59:571:00:05

That's it for the short

cut of Click this week.

Hello, this is Breakfast with

Naga Munchetty and Charlie Stayt.

1:00:511:00:54

Police investigating the murder

of a businessman in London begin

1:00:541:00:56

contacting other Russian exiles

to discuss their personal

1:00:561:00:58

safety in Britain.

1:00:581:00:59

Forensic teams have been working

through the night to find out

1:00:591:01:02

what happened to Nikolai Glushkov,

who was found dead on Monday.

1:01:021:01:10

Good morning, it's

Saturday 17th April.

1:01:201:01:23

Also this morning:

1:01:231:01:27

Police launch a murder investigation

after two women are shot dead

1:01:271:01:30

at a house in East Sussex.

1:01:301:01:34

100 flights are cancelled

and drivers are told

1:01:341:01:38

to expect disruption,

as the "mini beast from

1:01:381:01:39

the east" sweeps in.

1:01:391:01:46

A bit of a shock to the system. We

have got amber warnings enforced

1:01:471:01:52

from the Met Office taking effect

later this afternoon, but it will be

1:01:521:01:57

bitterly cold will stop I is

concerned and snow from the mid

1:01:571:02:01

afternoon onwards. All the details

in quarter of an hour.

1:02:011:02:04

All the details in

quarter of an hour.

In sport, the St Patrick's Day party

heads for Twickenham.

1:02:051:02:08

Ireland know they're Six Nations

champions already but victory over

1:02:081:02:10

England would give them the Grand

Slam.

1:02:101:02:16

Our main story this morning:

1:02:161:02:18

Our main story this morning:

1:02:181:02:19

Police investigating the murder

of a Russian man in London say

1:02:191:02:22

they have begun contacting other

Russian exiles in Britain

1:02:221:02:24

to discuss their safety.

1:02:241:02:25

Forensics teams have

continued working at the home

1:02:251:02:27

of 68-year Nikolai Glushkov,

who was found dead on Monday.

1:02:271:02:29

But police say at this stage,

it is not being connected

1:02:291:02:32

to the poisoning of former Russian

spy Sergei Skripal and his

1:02:321:02:34

daughter in Salisbury.

1:02:341:02:35

John McManus reports.

1:02:351:02:38

68-year-old Nikolai Glushkov,

found dead at his home

1:02:381:02:41

on this unassuming road

in Southwest London on Monday.

1:02:411:02:45

But Mr Glushkov's life

was anything but ordinary.

1:02:451:02:49

A post mortem has revealed

he was murdered, killed

1:02:491:02:52

by compression to the neck.

1:02:521:02:54

Unusually, counterterrorism police

are leading the investigation

1:02:541:02:57

because of Mr Glushkov's past.

1:02:571:03:00

In the 90s he was the director

of Russian airline Aeroflot,

1:03:001:03:08

But was jailed after being found

guilty of fraud and

1:03:091:03:12

money-laundering.

1:03:121:03:12

money-laundering.

1:03:121:03:16

He sought political asylum

in the UK and was still

1:03:161:03:19

being sued by Russia.

1:03:191:03:20

He was friends with Russian

businessmen Boris Berezovsky

1:03:201:03:26

who was found hanged in 2013.

1:03:261:03:27

An open verdict was recorded

but Mr Glushkov believed

1:03:271:03:30

he had been murdered.

1:03:301:03:35

Some observers believe

it is time to join the dots.

1:03:351:03:40

Mr Glushkov's death fits

into a wider pattern of the last 12

1:03:401:03:45

years of Russian opponents dropping

dead across Europe.

1:03:451:03:52

The consequences for the Kremlin

of this were limited for far too

1:03:531:03:56

long, the UK response as recently

been much stronger, but there

1:03:561:03:58

are still awful lot we could do.

1:03:581:04:00

The former PR executive, Lord Bell,

a friend of Mr Glushkov has told

1:04:001:04:03

the BBC he suspects he was killed

after being deemed a traitor

1:04:031:04:06

by the Russian state.

1:04:061:04:07

Police say that at present

there is no link between the murder

1:04:071:04:10

in London and the poisoning

of Sergei Skripal and his

1:04:101:04:12

daughter in Salisbury.

1:04:121:04:15

But some Russian exiles are being

contacted about their safety.

1:04:151:04:20

Our reporter John McManus is outside

the Russian embassy this morning.

1:04:201:04:28

A lot of new lines coming in and

shuffling in terms of how much

1:04:281:04:31

people been told and we understand

that is an international diplomatic

1:04:311:04:38

situation.

1:04:381:04:43

The police told us last night they

are contacting Russian exiles to

1:04:441:04:48

talk to them about their safety.

That does not mean they are in

1:04:481:04:51

danger about the safety, but they

want to talk about their

1:04:511:04:57

circumstances. The diplomatic

fallout is very tense, given what

1:04:571:05:02

happened to Sergei Skripal and his

daughter, who were poisoned using a

1:05:021:05:07

nerve agent. Theresa May says that

nerve agent was produced in Soviet

1:05:071:05:11

era Russia and is pointing the

finger at Russia and the Russians

1:05:111:05:15

had denied all knowledge of what

happened, but the diplomatic row has

1:05:151:05:20

been huge. The Prime Minister is

expelling 23 diplomats from the

1:05:201:05:24

Russian embassy behind me and the

Russians will respond in kind,

1:05:241:05:29

expelling British diplomats from our

embassy in Moscow. The words get

1:05:291:05:33

hotter day by day. Yesterday the

Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said

1:05:331:05:38

it was overwhelmingly likely that

the Russian president, Vladimir

1:05:381:05:43

Putin, had personally ordered that

nerve attack in Salisbury. The

1:05:431:05:47

Russians say those comments are

disgusting and they are annoyed by

1:05:471:05:51

that. Quite a lot going on

diplomatically. It does not look

1:05:511:05:54

like it will cool down any time

soon.

1:05:541:05:56

soon.

1:05:561:05:58

Police have launched a murder

investigation after two women

1:05:581:06:00

were shot and killed at a house

in East Sussex.

1:06:001:06:03

Officers were called to an address

in St Leonards on Sea last night.

1:06:031:06:06

A man has been arrested.

1:06:061:06:08

Marta Newman's report contains

some flashing images.

1:06:081:06:13

Officers responded immediately

when they got a report of a shooting

1:06:131:06:18

at a house at around 8pm last night.

1:06:181:06:22

The road in this seaside town

was closed and local residents

1:06:221:06:25

were asked to stay away

from the area and remain indoors.

1:06:251:06:29

Police say two women aged

32 and 53 were killed.

1:06:291:06:34

Two other women including one

who is pregnant were led to safety

1:06:341:06:37

by officers and taken to hospital.

1:06:371:06:40

Both were uninjured

but suffering from shock.

1:06:401:06:44

A 35-year-old man has been arrested

on suspicion of murder.

1:06:441:06:48

He remains in custody

for questioning.

1:06:481:06:56

Police have said that the victims

were known to the suspect

1:06:591:07:02

and that they are not looking

for anyone else in connection

1:07:021:07:04

with the shooting.

1:07:041:07:09

The Met Office is issuing an amber

warning for snow and ice in many

1:07:091:07:15

areas of Scotland. More than 100

flights to and from Heathrow have

1:07:151:07:19

been cancelled. Highways England is

advising motorists to avoid

1:07:191:07:24

trans-Pennine roads.

1:07:241:07:26

trans-Pennine roads.

1:07:261:07:28

The number of hospital admissions

due to older people falling

1:07:281:07:30

is expected to rise

to nearly one-thousand a day

1:07:301:07:32

by the end of the decade.

1:07:321:07:34

That's according to figures obtained

by the Local Government Association.

1:07:341:07:36

It's prompted calls for more funding

for adult social care.

1:07:361:07:38

After a fall if someone does not

recover fully they are housebound,

1:07:381:07:41

they may need to be provided

with home help, meals on wheels,

1:07:411:07:44

and it can also have

wider impacts on health,

1:07:441:07:47

and it is often a case that

when a person has a serious fall

1:07:471:07:53

it is one of the things that

precipitates the slippery slope

1:07:531:07:56

of them becoming housebound.

1:07:561:07:58

The former deputy director

of the FBI, Andrew McCabe,

1:07:581:08:00

has been fired, just hours before

he was due to formally retire.

1:08:001:08:04

Mr McCabe had faced repeated

criticism from President Trump.

1:08:041:08:06

In a statement he said his sacking

had been politically motivated

1:08:061:08:08

and claimed it was part of a wider

effort to taint the FBI

1:08:081:08:11

and intelligence professionals.

1:08:111:08:15

President Trump tweeted it had been

a great day for democracy.

1:08:151:08:21

Tens of thousands of people have

been fleeing and northern town in

1:08:211:08:24

Syria. The UN estimates almost

50,000 people have been displaced in

1:08:241:08:30

the last few days with reports from

the area that dozens of people were

1:08:301:08:34

killed in air strikes on Friday.

1:08:341:08:38

At least eight people have been

injured on a faulty ski lift in

1:08:381:08:43

Georgia. Skiers and snowboarders

were flung off at speed. Others were

1:08:431:08:46

forced to jump from the area as

their seats hurtled backwards down

1:08:461:08:52

the mountain. So far no cause has

been given as to what caused it.

1:08:521:08:59

Three children are being treated for

infections that may be linked to

1:08:591:09:03

bacteria in a water supply and

Glasgow hospital. NHS Strathclyde is

1:09:031:09:10

investigating after the discovery at

the Children's Hospital. They are

1:09:101:09:15

trying to confirm if the infections

are linked to water contamination.

1:09:151:09:25

The greatest showman continues to

dominate the charts and has been

1:09:251:09:28

setting at the top of the charts for

ten weeks.

1:09:281:09:35

ten weeks. The film is loosely based

on the life of a circus impresario.

1:09:371:09:48

The only other album that state at

the top for a longer was Adele's

1:09:481:09:53

album 21.

1:09:531:10:04

We will have a report on the

weather.

1:10:061:10:08

We will have a report

on the weather.

1:10:081:10:10

It's almost two weeks since former

Russian spy Sergei Skripal

1:10:101:10:12

and his daugher were attacked

with a nerve agent in Salisbury.

1:10:121:10:15

The UK is still waiting for a formal

response from Russia,

1:10:151:10:18

following the Prime Minister's

decision to expel 23

1:10:181:10:20

Russian diplomats.

1:10:201:10:21

Moscow's Foreign Minister has

indicated Russia will "certainly"

1:10:211:10:23

expel British diplomats.

1:10:231:10:24

Professor Robert Service

is an expert in Russian

1:10:241:10:26

history and politics

from the University of Oxford.

1:10:261:10:30

Good morning. Thank you for your

time this morning. We are being told

1:10:301:10:36

by quite a few politicians this is

not a new Cold War. What is it?

It

1:10:361:10:42

is something less than a Cold War.

There are two great superpower is

1:10:421:10:49

facing up to each other about to

possibly launch nuclear missiles

1:10:491:10:52

against each other, so we are a long

way away from that. But it is a very

1:10:521:10:59

severe, freezing over of diplomatic

relations between Britain and the

1:10:591:11:09

Russian Federation. It is really

serious.

When you have the British

1:11:091:11:14

Foreign Secretary claiming that

Boris Yeltsin personally ordered the

1:11:141:11:22

poisoning in Salisbury, what do you

make of that? I am so sorry I

1:11:221:11:30

apologise for that.

It is really

easily done.

1:11:301:11:39

easily done. I think that he, Boris

Johnson, I have got to get it right

1:11:391:11:46

this time, made a very broad

statement. I think we need a few

1:11:461:11:53

more assurances that there is

evidence that points directly at the

1:11:531:12:03

Russian president. I do think a lot

of the circumstantial evidence

1:12:031:12:08

points at the Russian state.

Vladimir Putin certainly does

1:12:081:12:17

supervise the work of the FSB. But

whether we can point the finger

1:12:171:12:22

directly at him for these appalling

outrages in Salisbury and the murder

1:12:221:12:33

of Nikolai Glushkov in London, we

need a lot more evidence.

It is

1:12:331:12:41

interesting new couch it in that

terminology because we have done

1:12:411:12:44

that. Our Foreign Secretary has

exactly personally blamed the

1:12:441:12:49

Russian leader for these actions.

Where does this leave the Russian

1:12:491:12:53

reaction? We have been talking for

many days about what they may or may

1:12:531:12:58

not do. There is an election

happening there. Is there a sense

1:12:581:13:02

they will wait until the election is

over and then respond?

I think they

1:13:021:13:08

have been much more circumspect than

we have been. We rather rushed in to

1:13:081:13:15

making the accusations before laying

out the evidence.

1:13:151:13:24

out the evidence. Perhaps we have

done this with the relations we have

1:13:241:13:27

had with our Western allies, but

this has not been made public yet.

1:13:271:13:32

That is one of the problems with the

way that the British Government has

1:13:321:13:35

handled this matter. It has not come

into the open with the British

1:13:351:13:43

public and it needs to come into the

open with the Russian public as

1:13:431:13:45

well.

It may be, Professor, that

some people would agree with that

1:13:451:13:52

notion, that more evidence should

have been made available. Jeremy

1:13:521:13:56

Corbyn is saying it should be

evidence lead. But one of the issues

1:13:561:14:00

people suggest no matter what

evidence is put forward, it will

1:14:001:14:05

never be enough to satisfy the

Russians and they will always say

1:14:051:14:08

regardless of what is presented or

what is independently checked that

1:14:081:14:12

it still has nothing to do with

them. It does not get you anywhere.

1:14:121:14:17

It does not get you very far except

that it shows a willingness to

1:14:171:14:24

discuss the evidence in as concrete

way as you possibly can. But you are

1:14:241:14:31

absolutely right. When the Malaysian

airline was downed the Russians just

1:14:311:14:38

insisted on 100% proof that it was

definitely them when so much of the

1:14:381:14:44

evidence was already there. They

will always say you haven't proved

1:14:441:14:50

it 100%. But I think there is a

middle ground between 100% and 0%

1:14:501:14:59

and we need a little bit more. We

need more in the public domain so we

1:14:591:15:04

can feel confident that we know what

we are talking about.

If I may, I

1:15:041:15:10

just wanted to bring one story we

are hearing this morning, in the

1:15:101:15:16

last few minutes we are hearing the

UK ambassador to Russia in Moscow

1:15:161:15:19

has been summoned to a meeting,

called in to a meeting today. That

1:15:191:15:27

meeting will be happening today in

Moscow. I just wonder what you make

1:15:271:15:30

of that.

They are starting to move

the wheels. They are certainly going

1:15:301:15:37

to retaliate. One of the benefits

for Vladimir Putin in all of this is

1:15:371:15:46

that he is able to be seen by

Russians to stand up to Western

1:15:461:15:50

powers. It is on this basis that a

lot of his popularity rests in

1:15:501:15:56

Russia. So pulling in the British

ambassador, the old imperial power,

1:15:561:16:07

snubbing your nose at the British,

that is quite a popular thing to do.

1:16:071:16:13

Professor, thank you very much for

your time. Professor Robert Service

1:16:131:16:17

from the University of Oxford.

We understand in the last few

1:16:171:16:22

minutes the UK ambassador to Russia

has been summoned to the Russian

1:16:221:16:25

Foreign Ministry and this follows a

former spokesperson from the

1:16:251:16:29

ministry saying that it would

announce its retaliatory measures

1:16:291:16:34

against London very soon. That

meeting is expected to be today for

1:16:341:16:38

the UK ambassador to Russia.

1:16:381:16:39

the UK ambassador to Russia.

1:16:391:16:43

It is 16 minutes past seven.

1:16:431:16:50

Also coming up in the programme:

It's the final round of

1:16:501:16:52

the Six Nations but can Ireland

complete their Grand Slam by beating

1:16:521:16:55

England at Twickenham?

1:16:551:16:58

That is a short-lived from the

venue.

1:16:581:17:02

It is cold, though. That cup will be

feeling the chill although there

1:17:021:17:07

will be very hot hands waiting to

get onto it. But it is called for a

1:17:071:17:11

lot of us this morning, Helen.

1:17:111:17:15

get onto it. But it is called for a

lot of us this morning, Helen.

1:17:151:17:20

Scotland in Rome are probably doing

better off than if they stayed at

1:17:201:17:24

home because it will be a shock to

the system for all of us.

1:17:241:17:29

Temperatures in all areas are about

10 degrees down. But we are already

1:17:291:17:33

having a few issues with ice. We

have some snow around already. We

1:17:331:17:38

have exchanged the mild Atlantic air

with the cold Siberian air. But it

1:17:381:17:44

is just a mini incursion of cold

air, so it should cut off early next

1:17:441:17:49

week. We have a band of patchy snow

falling in Suffolk at the moment. It

1:17:491:17:55

is rain in the south-west but it

will turn progressively to sleet and

1:17:551:17:58

snow. It is the showers coming in

afterwards and thick and fast

1:17:581:18:04

hitting the same area. It will feel

colder than you would expect because

1:18:041:18:09

of the strength of the wind. The

best of the sunshine in northern

1:18:091:18:14

Scotland. For most of us it is very

low single figures and add on the

1:18:141:18:18

gale force wind and it will feel

even colder. If you are heading out,

1:18:181:18:24

wrap up warm. The amber warnings are

in force from mid-afternoon onwards.

1:18:241:18:32

These areas will see shower after

shower. Because the air is so cold,

1:18:321:18:38

they will all fall as snow. There is

another amber warning out for

1:18:381:18:42

tonight. It joins in here because we

could have a more significant area

1:18:421:18:48

coming in across southern England

and South Wales. There is some

1:18:481:18:53

uncertainty over that. You can see

the showers continuing in the South

1:18:531:18:56

East, but then they gathered

together for a longer spell of snow

1:18:561:19:02

in southern England, South West

England and southern Wales. There is

1:19:021:19:06

a lot of uncertainty as to the area

that will affect. Even at lower

1:19:061:19:14

levels there could be a few

centimetres. And a widespread chill

1:19:141:19:19

tomorrow. Hopefully that snow pushes

out of the way. A potential problem

1:19:191:19:24

in southern and western areas before

it finally clears away. A few

1:19:241:19:29

showers follow on behind but not as

many. It will still feel cold. But

1:19:291:19:34

the wind is still quite strong, so

the chill is still there. But it

1:19:341:19:39

does not really last beyond the

weekend because we start to cut off

1:19:391:19:43

what we have, that easterly wind

coming right the way across the low

1:19:431:19:49

countries of Europe. Snow for the

Alpine regions as well. But we start

1:19:491:19:56

to get a high coming in from the

Atlantic instead. If you are heading

1:19:561:20:03

out it will be much colder,

especially in Central and southern

1:20:031:20:07

areas compared to yesterday, and we

are anticipating increasing issues

1:20:071:20:12

with snow as we go through the

latter part of the day tonight and

1:20:121:20:15

tomorrow. See you later.

1:20:151:20:17

See you later.

1:20:171:20:20

Beer, green hats, shamrocks

and celebratory shenanigans.

1:20:201:20:23

It can only mean one

thing - St Patricks day!

1:20:231:20:30

I was not expecting the word

shenanigans.

1:20:301:20:32

I was not expecting

the word shenanigans.

1:20:321:20:33

And it's not just the Irish

commemorating the Patron of Ireland,

1:20:331:20:36

it's thought to be the most

celebrated festival in the world.

1:20:361:20:39

Over 250 iconic landmarks

across the globe will be

1:20:391:20:41

illuminated green this weekend.

1:20:411:20:42

Let's have a look at

what we can expect.

1:20:421:20:50

IRISH MUSIC PLAYS.

1:21:001:21:08

Who's started the party early?

1:21:361:21:38

How are you celebrating?

1:21:381:21:40

We want to see!

1:21:401:21:44

Perhaps you are dressing up. Green

is the obvious colour to adopt.

1:21:441:21:48

Look at that. You didn't get that

memo!

1:21:481:21:53

You didn't get that memo!

1:21:531:21:54

Send us your Paddy's Day pics

to breakfast.tv@bbc.co.uk.

1:21:541:22:02

I am still stuck on the word

shenanigans.

1:22:061:22:09

With the impact of TV programmes

like Blue Planet we are more aware

1:22:091:22:12

of the need to recycle

than ever before.

1:22:121:22:14

But when it comes to what can

and can't be recycled,

1:22:141:22:17

there is a lot of confusion.

1:22:171:22:18

That lack of clarity can result

in entire bags of recycling

1:22:181:22:21

being rejected and sent to landfill,

according to research carried out

1:22:211:22:23

by the British Science Association.

1:22:231:22:25

Simon Ellin is the Head of the UK

Recycling Association

1:22:251:22:27

and joins us now.

1:22:271:22:30

Good morning. We are going to go

through some stuff today. People are

1:22:301:22:38

to a degree slightly confused about

what they can and cannot recycle.

1:22:381:22:41

Give us the broad picture.

There are

so many different products out there

1:22:461:22:52

that are badly designed, that are

not labelled properly. We have 340

1:22:521:22:58

plus different collection systems in

the UK, so the public are confused.

1:22:581:23:03

You are talking about the bins you

have and what you can put in which

1:23:031:23:07

bin?

What goes where, absolutely,

and getting the education and the

1:23:071:23:13

marketing from the councils across

to the public to say what you can

1:23:131:23:17

and cannot recycle and how you do

it. It is something we need to look

1:23:171:23:20

at because it is a big problem. A

lot of materials are getting wasted

1:23:201:23:25

and cross contaminating other

materials.

What happens if something

1:23:251:23:31

is cross contaminated? What is the

impact? If you have a whole load of

1:23:311:23:37

stuff that is recyclable and there

is something that is not, what

1:23:371:23:42

happens?

It is a great question.

Basically what happens is it

1:23:421:23:49

contaminates the other things that

is recyclable. 20% on average of

1:23:491:23:55

what goes into our recycling bin at

home is contamination. That

1:23:551:23:59

contaminates everything else, so you

get food leaking which contaminates

1:23:591:24:04

paper and that means when it goes

through the process and get out the

1:24:041:24:07

other side the quality of the

material is sometimes marginal

1:24:071:24:13

whether you can take it on for

recycling. Bad practice at the

1:24:131:24:18

beginning produces bad practice at

the end.

Fancy a quiz?

I hope so, I

1:24:181:24:24

hope I get it right.

These are

questions of what can and cannot be

1:24:241:24:29

recycled. Plastic bags, yes or no?

Sometimes yes, sometimes no and that

1:24:291:24:37

is part of the confusion.

1:24:371:24:45

is part of the confusion. Aerosols?

Yes. The whole can?

The whole thing.

1:24:451:24:52

Where do you put it? If you have got

a separate collection for cans, if

1:24:521:24:58

not, you put it in with everything

else. It is a ferrous metal. There

1:24:581:25:05

are plastic bits in it as well?

That

will be taken off in the process.

1:25:051:25:11

Envelopes with Windows?

1:25:111:25:18

Envelopes with Windows? With the

windows on, but if you are like me

1:25:181:25:21

and you take the window of, yes.

Kitchen roll.

1:25:211:25:30

The reason this is up is because of

how kitchen roll is made, if it is

1:25:301:25:36

coated or things like that. This is

why we put this in.

A lot of the

1:25:361:25:41

time when you have used it it has

got food contamination and it can

1:25:411:25:45

have all sorts of germs and

bacteria, so it is no.

The person on

1:25:451:25:51

the buzzer just slightly jumped the

gun. Because of the food

1:25:511:25:55

contamination. So can I ask, this

year, say it is like a punnet full

1:25:551:26:04

of strawberries and it has that thin

plastic on top, which bit can be

1:26:041:26:11

recycled?

All of it.

I have been

told I cannot put a thin plastic in

1:26:111:26:20

my recycling bin.

This comes back to

the 340 different collection

1:26:201:26:25

systems. I can put plastic film in

my cycling bin at home, but in other

1:26:251:26:31

places you cannot. This is where we

have to get down to consistency.

1:26:311:26:36

Anything plastic, as long as it is a

single polymer plastic can be

1:26:361:26:39

recycled. It is a clear plastic

punnet and it is infinitely

1:26:391:26:45

recyclable.

It should be washed

before being recycle?

Always watch

1:26:451:26:52

it so the food and the liquid does

not cross contaminate everything

1:26:521:26:56

else.

Then you are wasting water.

Do

it in your washing-up water.

Does

1:26:561:27:04

not get washed in the process when

it is being recycle?

Yes, but there

1:27:041:27:10

is an element of cross contamination

which leaks into the cardboard and

1:27:101:27:16

everything else. Also as well it

might not immediately get recycled.

1:27:161:27:23

If that has had food in it for

several days before it gets recycle,

1:27:231:27:27

you get bacteria and mould and there

is damage. This is where we need to

1:27:271:27:33

get very simple rules add to the

public so they know exactly what

1:27:331:27:36

they can and cannot do.

Thank you so

much for coming in this morning.

1:27:361:27:44

Thank you so much for

coming in this morning.

1:27:441:27:46

Dealing with the life changing

effects of a traumatic event

1:27:461:27:48

or tragedy can be incredibly tough.

1:27:481:27:50

But for some, one way

to cope is to write.

1:27:501:27:55

Now a series of workshops

across the UK - which are part

1:27:551:27:58

of 'Get Creative', a national

festival to encourage creativity -

1:27:581:28:00

are helping people to use writing

to deal with difficult feelings.

1:28:001:28:06

David Sillito has been speaking

to three people who have found hope

1:28:061:28:09

from writing poetry.

1:28:091:28:10

It helps me far more

than a psychiatry I've had.

1:28:101:28:17

So on those days of victory,

proud David, you will see,

1:28:171:28:20

but on those days I have no stones.

1:28:201:28:22

You'll see the ghost of me.

1:28:221:28:26

I'm Karl Tierney.

1:28:261:28:30

I think there's a lot of residue

in my brain from Bosnia.

1:28:301:28:32

I feel like I'm David

with slingshot and small stones.

1:28:321:28:36

I fight the life daily.

1:28:361:28:38

I fight his moans and groans.

1:28:381:28:41

And it has unlocked or tapped

into this area of my brain.

1:28:411:28:46

The creativity can also bring me

a sense of some sort of solace.

1:28:461:28:53

Laboured breath, sweaty brow,

not long left of this nightmare.

1:28:561:29:00

Can I wake up now?

1:29:001:29:03

My name is Nicky Tomasi.

1:29:031:29:04

I'm the lucky one, they say.

1:29:041:29:06

The one that got away.

1:29:061:29:10

My son was at the Manchester Arena

last year, and unfortunately

1:29:101:29:12

lost his partner Martin there.

1:29:121:29:16

So, consequently, I've been having

counselling because of that,

1:29:161:29:19

and my counsellor suggested that

writing might be able to help me

1:29:191:29:24

to get my feelings out.

1:29:241:29:26

I don't feel lucky.

1:29:261:29:29

I carry the aftermath in my head.

1:29:291:29:32

Dread upon waking, and long nights

full of vivid dreams.

1:29:321:29:37

I know that I struggle with it

all and it ten months,

1:29:371:29:48

but it's definitely...

all and it ten months,

1:29:481:29:49

This, I would say, this

is the first concrete thing that

1:29:491:29:53

has really helped me,

and I've got countless friends,

1:29:531:29:55

I've got family I can talk to,

but this is the first concrete thing

1:29:551:29:58

that has really helped me.

1:29:581:29:59

I'm Martin Figuero.

1:29:591:30:03

I'm a writer and the reason I'm

here is that my father

1:30:031:30:06

killed my mother when I was nine.

1:30:061:30:09

The family sits round the table

ready for the meal which is me.

1:30:091:30:14

So he was from Silesia,

which is now in Poland,

1:30:141:30:17

but had been in Germany,

so when he was 14,

1:30:171:30:21

joined the Hitler Youth.

1:30:211:30:23

There was no choice in this.

1:30:231:30:25

And then he was conscripted

into the German army.

1:30:251:30:28

It was almost like the Second World

War 20 years on swept

1:30:281:30:31

through our house one night,

and he killed her.

1:30:311:30:35

Uncle Philip as head

of the family sharpens the knife.

1:30:351:30:39

It seems stupid now.

1:30:391:30:40

It's just metaphor.

1:30:401:30:44

It was like metaphor,

and in that metaphorical truth

1:30:441:30:47

I learned more about myself

and my experience than any recall

1:30:471:30:51

of facts and laying down of facts,

and that was a real

1:30:511:30:54

breakthrough for me.

1:30:541:31:02

There are more than a thousand

creative events happening

1:31:031:31:06

across the UK as part

of the Get Creative Festival.

1:31:131:31:21

What's next for Brexit? The EU is

holding a summit looking at what

1:31:211:31:25

happens after Britain has left. But

with wrangling on so many topics,

1:31:251:31:29

can deal be done in just over a

year? Join me at the EU leader's

1:31:291:31:35

summit on Thursday and Friday year

on the BBC News Channel.

1:31:351:31:39

Hello.

1:31:391:31:41

This is Breakfast with

Naga Munchetty and Charlie Stayt.

1:31:411:31:43

Good Morning.

1:31:431:31:44

Here's a summary of today's main

stories from BBC News.

1:31:441:31:50

The police have launched a murder

investigation after two women were

1:31:501:31:53

shot and killed at a house in east

Sussex. Officers were called to an

1:31:531:31:59

address in Saint Leonard's on Sea

last night. A 35-year-old man has

1:31:591:32:03

been arrested. The victims, aged 52

and 53, were known to be suspect.

1:32:031:32:08

Police say they are not looking for

anybody else in connection with the

1:32:081:32:13

shooting. The UK ambassador in

Russia has been summoned to a

1:32:131:32:17

meeting at the Russian foreign

ministry. It comes after the Kremlin

1:32:171:32:22

indicated it would retaliate after

the Prime Minister expelled 23

1:32:221:32:25

Russian diplomats from the UK. It

has now been almost a week since the

1:32:251:32:29

nerve agent attack on former spy

Sergei Skripal and his daughter in

1:32:291:32:32

Salisbury. Yesterday's announcement

of the exile in south London

1:32:321:32:41

occurred. Police say these two

incidents are not connected.

1:32:411:32:44

The Met Office is issuing an amber

warning for snow and ice in much

1:32:441:32:47

of England and parts of Scotland,

ahead of another cold snap.

1:32:471:32:50

More than 100 flights

to and from Heathrow have been

1:32:501:32:52

cancelled ahead of predicted bad

weather dubbed the mini

1:32:521:32:55

beast from the east.

1:32:551:32:56

Highways England is advising

motorists to avoid

1:32:561:32:57

trans-Pennine roads.

1:32:571:32:59

The former deputy director

of the FBI has been dramatically

1:32:591:33:01

fired, just hours before he was due

to formally retire.

1:33:011:33:04

Andrew McCabe said his sacking had

been politically motivated,

1:33:041:33:08

and claimed it was part of a wider

effort to taint the FBI.

1:33:081:33:12

President Trump tweeted it had been

a "great day for democracy".

1:33:121:33:17

The number of hospital admissions

due to older people falling

1:33:171:33:25

is expected to rise to nearly 1,000

a day by the end of the decade.

1:33:251:33:29

That's according to figures obtained

by the Local Government Association.

1:33:291:33:32

It's prompted calls for more funding

for adult social care.

1:33:321:33:36

It might have been panned by some

critics but Hugh Jackman's

1:33:361:33:44

critics but Hugh Jackman's musical

The Greatest Showman continues to

1:33:441:33:46

dominate the music charts, sitting

at the top of the UK charts for ten

1:33:461:33:50

weeks.

1:33:501:33:57

weeks. The film is loosely based on

the life of circus impresario PT

1:33:571:34:08

Barnum, the greatest showman.

Adele's 21 managed 21 weeks on the

1:34:081:34:14

top spot. Is it true that if we keep

the music going, you can sing along?

1:34:141:34:19

You know all the words. I tell you

what, my eight-year-old son Evan

1:34:191:34:24

does. He is learning it in music and

primary school at the moment. So you

1:34:241:34:27

have heard it a lot? I have heard it

a lot. You can probably do bee

1:34:271:34:32

numbers for us. OK, if we raise

enough money in Sport Belief. Be

1:34:321:34:40

careful! Really looking forward to

the rugby, changing the subject

1:34:401:34:43

quickly.

1:34:431:34:45

So, can Ireland complete

the Grand Slam today?

1:34:451:34:47

They'll have to do it at Twickenham,

where England haven't lost

1:34:471:34:50

a match under Eddie Jones.

1:34:501:34:51

Let's ask our sports correspondent

Ollie Foster, who's there for us.

1:34:511:34:54

Who's the smart money on, Olly?

1:34:541:35:02

It is so tactical. This is where it

all starts for Ireland. A fantastic

1:35:021:35:08

afternoon of rugby head. The final

round of matches. A triple bill.

1:35:081:35:13

Sandwiched in the middle is this

match at Twickenham. I'm outside the

1:35:131:35:17

island dressing room. They can't

miss it, can they? The England team

1:35:171:35:21

will be in here. The England

dressing room is much bigger. Can't

1:35:211:35:24

get in. It is locked. The two sets

of players will be coming down here.

1:35:241:35:29

England- Eddie Jones has made all of

the changes. Seven personal changes,

1:35:291:35:34

ten changes in all. Ireland just the

one change. Ireland have been

1:35:341:35:39

getting stronger and stronger, and

England have seemed to have gone

1:35:391:35:43

backwards. They lost that incredible

match against Scotland, they lost

1:35:431:35:47

against the French. Imagine they

roar when they come out of year.

1:35:471:35:52

80,000. Could not get a ticket for

love nor money. But very, very

1:35:521:35:57

expensive to get a ticket. And there

it is. That is what it is all about

1:35:571:36:02

for Ireland. They won this last week

after they beat Scotland in Dublin.

1:36:021:36:05

Muted celebrations because they knew

that this was what it was all about.

1:36:051:36:12

The grand slam. Very rarely done in

the last seven years. England

1:36:121:36:15

obviously did it the year before

last and that it was Ireland to

1:36:151:36:19

scupper their chances last season in

Dublin, so it is kind of a reverse.

1:36:191:36:25

On the flip, England, the best they

can hope for a second and trying to

1:36:251:36:28

upset Ireland and their hopes for

the grand slam. You look at the

1:36:281:36:32

names year. You have England,

England, so on for a hat-trick. You

1:36:321:36:36

have Ireland in 2014 and 2015. You

go back to 2009. That is when

1:36:361:36:42

Ireland last grand slam. And you

would have to go back 61 years

1:36:421:36:47

before the previous time that they

did that. So that is what it is all

1:36:471:36:50

about. Ireland will have this

trophy, but it is all about the

1:36:501:36:54

grand slam. We have got Italy

against Scotland before that, and

1:36:541:36:57

then it all rounds up from half past

four on BBC we have Wales against

1:36:571:37:02

France. So it is going to be a great

afternoon of rugby. Thank you so

1:37:021:37:08

much. Windy there at Twickenham

today.

1:37:081:37:11

England's women ended their Six

Nations with victory over Ireland -

1:37:111:37:13

but they finished runners

up to France.

1:37:131:37:15

England won by 33 points to 11

at the Ricoh Arena -

1:37:151:37:18

Danielle Waterman becoming

the nation's leading

1:37:181:37:21

try-scorer with 47 -

she's now just two tries short

1:37:211:37:27

of Rory Underwood's

overall England record.

1:37:271:37:29

France took the title

with victory over Wales.

1:37:291:37:31

Great Britain are still short

of their medals target,

1:37:311:37:33

on the penultimate day

of competition at the Winter

1:37:331:37:35

Paralympics in South Korea.

1:37:351:37:38

Let's go over to Pyeongchang now

and our reporter Kate Grey can

1:37:381:37:41

bring us up to date.

1:37:411:37:48

Yes, that's right. It has been a

very quiet day for British athletes.

1:37:481:37:53

Just two athletes in action. We will

start at the Alpine skiing. James

1:37:531:37:57

Whitley was going in his big event

of these games. He has finished

1:37:571:38:00

outside of the medals in all of

those events so far. This time, he

1:38:001:38:03

was going in the slalom, which is

his preferred event on what was a

1:38:031:38:07

very tricky course, very icy, very

widely, and also a very tough

1:38:071:38:12

category. He ended up

1:38:121:38:17

category. He ended up finishing in

ten, which is one of his best

1:38:181:38:20

performances here at these games and

is an improvement from his

1:38:201:38:22

performances back in Sochi four

years ago. He is still a long way

1:38:221:38:25

off from the medals and will look to

improve on that. There is British

1:38:251:38:29

interest in the Nordic skiing. It

was cross country today. The seven

1:38:291:38:33

and a half kilometre distance for

Scott Mina, who was going in his

1:38:331:38:36

sixth event of these games. He has

had a very busy programme. He only

1:38:361:38:40

got into Nordic skiing about 18

months ago, and today he finished

1:38:401:38:44

14th, so our way back from the

medallists, but still a great

1:38:441:38:52

performance from the British athlete

and he will look to aim for Beijing

1:38:521:38:55

2022 after these games. Still a lot

to do for Great Britain as they move

1:38:551:38:58

into the last day with all eyes on

the visually impaired Alpine skiers.

1:38:581:39:00

Thank you. It looked warmer there

than it did at Twickenham.

1:39:001:39:03

If you thought you'd seen it

all where Jose Mourinho's concerned,

1:39:031:39:05

well, you were wrong.

1:39:051:39:08

He gave a 12 minute answer

at his press conference yesterday,

1:39:081:39:12

uninterrupted, defending

Manchester United's

1:39:121:39:13

shock exit to Sevilla

in

1:39:131:39:14

the Champions League.

1:39:141:39:15

Here's just a snippet of his rant.

1:39:151:39:17

I'm not going to cry

because I heard a few boos.

1:39:171:39:21

I'm not going to disappear.

1:39:211:39:24

When I was 20 years

old I was nobody in football.

1:39:241:39:29

And now at 55 I am what I am and I

did what I did because of work,

1:39:291:39:33

because of my talent

and my mentality.

1:39:331:39:36

I could be in another country

with the league in my pocket,

1:39:361:39:41

the kind of league that you win even

before the league starts.

1:39:411:39:44

I could be.

1:39:441:39:45

I am not, I am here.

1:39:451:39:47

It was a frustrating evening

for Hibernian as they missed

1:39:471:39:49

the chance to go third

in the Scottish Premiership.

1:39:491:39:52

Hibs went ahead in the second

minute, had their keeper

1:39:521:39:54

sent off not long after,

and held out until the final

1:39:541:39:57

stages when Chris Kane

equalised for St Johnstone.

1:39:571:40:04

The Cheltenham Gold Cup is one

of the biggest racing

1:40:041:40:07

events of the year -

and we got a contest

1:40:071:40:09

which lived up to that billing.

1:40:091:40:10

It was, literally, a two horse race

with Native River holding off

1:40:101:40:13

the favourite Might Bite.

1:40:131:40:15

That gave jockey Richard Johnson his

second Gold Cup triump -

1:40:151:40:18

and a first for trainer

Colin Tizzard.

1:40:181:40:26

It was the champions

of Super League against the leaders

1:40:271:40:29

Leeds Rhinos, won.

1:40:291:40:31

of Super League last

night, and the champions,

1:40:311:40:33

Leeds Rhinos, won.

1:40:331:40:34

They ended St Helens unbeaten run

since the start of the season thanks

1:40:341:40:37

to a strong second half performance.

1:40:371:40:38

Ash Handley scored two

of the Rhinos' five tries.

1:40:381:40:40

Elsewhere Salford beat Hull FC.

1:40:401:40:42

Some tennis news for you and Venus

Williams has been knocked

1:40:421:40:45

out in the semi-finals

at Indian Wells and so has world

1:40:451:40:48

number one Simona Halep.

1:40:481:40:51

Williams lost to Russia's Daria

Kasatkina, who's beaten four

1:40:511:40:53

Grand Slam champions on her way

to the final where she'll meet

1:40:531:40:56

Naomi Osaka of Japan.

1:40:561:41:03

Now to the second of our

Commonwealth Games previews.

1:41:031:41:10

Last week we saw the youngest

athlete, Wales' 11-year-old

1:41:101:41:12

table tennis player.

1:41:121:41:13

This week Mike has been to train

with one of the oldest.

1:41:131:41:16

67-year-old David Calvert is heading

to his 11th Games to compete

1:41:161:41:19

in the highest calibre shooting

event, full bore rifle.

1:41:191:41:25

Before he left, Mike went to train

with David and his partner in Surrey

1:41:251:41:28

although it was more like Siberia.

1:41:281:41:36

He is arguably

the best in the world.

1:41:461:41:48

You're aiming at a target

which could be 900 metres away.

1:41:481:41:52

A little black dot on the horizon,

a bull's-eye the size of a dinner

1:41:521:41:56

plate, and yet in conditions more

akin to Siberia, one David Calvert,

1:41:561:42:01

now in his 60s and going to his 11th

Commonwealth Games, will hit 99%

1:42:011:42:04

of the time.

1:42:041:42:09

It is a sport that you can start

in your teens and continue well past

1:42:091:42:12

normal retirement age,

you can compete and be

1:42:121:42:14

competitive for decades.

1:42:141:42:18

It is the challenge of the wind

effect and also the skills

1:42:181:42:22

of firing a good shot.

1:42:221:42:27

There is a crack, you see

the splash of the sound,

1:42:271:42:31

can you feel the buzz in the target,

you pull it down, it

1:42:311:42:39

is good for your stomach muscles.

1:42:411:42:42

Give it another push,

and at this point there would be

1:42:421:42:45

another hole in the target.

1:42:451:42:46

The maximum possible score

in the individual Commonwealth Games

1:42:461:42:48

event is 405 points.

1:42:481:42:51

David scored 404 to set the record.

1:42:511:42:53

Wow.

1:42:531:42:58

David is used to being carried

to the podium, as is the tradition

1:42:581:43:02

in fullbore rifle shooting,

having won four Commonwealth

1:43:021:43:05

golds for his native

Northern Ireland and four bronze.

1:43:051:43:09

It is regarded as a blue-ribbon

event by quite a few

1:43:091:43:11

in the sport of shooting,

partly because of the heritage.

1:43:111:43:14

This is where it all started back

in 1860, with the award

1:43:141:43:17

of the Queen's prize

by Queen Victoria.

1:43:171:43:20

Never been that comfortable around

large bangs, but what worried me

1:43:201:43:23

most as I was invited to take a shot

in this high-calibre sport

1:43:231:43:26

is how far the bullet can

travel in that wind.

1:43:261:43:32

Fresh winds today would blow

the bullet by ten feet.

1:43:321:43:37

It is why in pairs you rely

on your partner to help

1:43:371:43:41

you line up your shot.

1:43:411:43:42

Line up the sights...

1:43:421:43:44

Take your time.

1:43:441:43:46

It is all about mental

strength under pressure.

1:43:461:43:50

Ready when you are.

1:43:501:43:57

Just squeeze gently.

1:43:571:44:01

You do feel a slight thud,

once it is pushing to your shoulder,

1:44:011:44:04

the whole body takes it.

1:44:041:44:06

The shot that is showing

is a simple bull's-eye.

1:44:061:44:11

I would stop while you are ahead.

1:44:111:44:13

I will leave it there,

to 25-year-old Jack Alexander

1:44:131:44:15

to partner David at the Commonwealth

Games.

1:44:151:44:23

It's a privilege to shoot alongside

David, and are not many people

1:44:291:44:32

in the game who would be at the top

of their game for as long as David

1:44:321:44:36

had, he is passing on his knowledge

and enjoys me doing well as well.

1:44:361:44:39

All that Jack and David are aiming

for now is a Commonwealth golds.

1:44:391:44:47

What an incredibly slow hand you

have to have to do that. Certainly

1:44:511:44:56

won't have a drip on his nose out

there unless it is wet.

1:44:561:45:06

I very much doubt that anyone will

be getting a sweat on this weekend,

1:45:061:45:10

because it is going to be called.

That is an understatement.

1:45:101:45:15

because it is going to be called.

That is an understatement.

1:45:151:45:17

It will be a real shock to the

system. The easterly wind is back

1:45:171:45:21

and with it the issues of snow and

ice. The Met office amber warning

1:45:211:45:26

has come into force from

mid-afternoon. We already have snow

1:45:261:45:28

and ice because we have shifted from

the Atlantic south-westerly is to

1:45:281:45:33

the Siberian easterlies. The high

pressure too far away to cut off

1:45:331:45:36

that flowing to stop the snow

showers, so they will start to come

1:45:361:45:39

in big and fast. This is the band of

rain, sleet and snow that we have

1:45:391:45:43

sinking southwards, so some

centimetres in parts of Sussex. It

1:45:431:45:47

will turn to sleet and snow and then

Peter out. We are expecting to see

1:45:471:45:53

more significant amounts of snow in

the shower is behind it. This will

1:45:531:45:57

cause things to be a little on the

slippery side. These are daytime

1:45:571:46:01

temperatures. Remember we had 14

Celsius yesterday. What a shock. 10

1:46:011:46:06

degrees down. And then we have a

gale force winds which is buffeting

1:46:061:46:11

parts of Wales and Cumbria. This

strength of wind you get what is

1:46:111:46:14

cold rotors streaming which are very

gusty winds to the west of

1:46:141:46:18

mountains. Let's concentrate on the

snow and ice. The showers will be

1:46:181:46:22

focused across parts of northern

England and the Midlands and perhaps

1:46:221:46:25

the east of Wales. Also across the

south-east of England and into

1:46:251:46:29

Essex. Trundling down the Thames

Valley. And then tonight as well as

1:46:291:46:34

that we could have a more

significant spell of snow across

1:46:341:46:37

southern England and South Wales.

Let's take a look at how it is

1:46:371:46:39

looking through the latter part of

today. There we are with that strong

1:46:391:46:44

near gale force easterly wind

blowing snow showers across the

1:46:441:46:47

country, across other areas as well.

Not everywhere will see them but

1:46:471:46:51

they will start to pile up. This is

the more significant area of snow.

1:46:511:46:56

We still have some uncertainty on

how much we will see, but several

1:46:561:46:59

centimetres will cause disruption

and it will stick because

1:46:591:47:02

temperatures are below freezing. It

will be a hard, penetrating frost

1:47:021:47:06

tonight because of the strength of

that wind on a great Saint Patrick's

1:47:061:47:09

a evening. Bitterly cold. And then

as we go through tomorrow, that snow

1:47:091:47:13

is still with us. We think there

will be some snow showers following

1:47:131:47:17

on behind and it will be very cold

indeed. We could have significant

1:47:171:47:20

problems, as you can appreciate,

with several hours of snow falling

1:47:201:47:24

in some southern parts of the

country. Sunshine in Belfast, but

1:47:241:47:29

for most of us are very cold day.

Perhaps not quite as harsh as today

1:47:291:47:35

adding on the wind-chill. Does it

last? No. It looks as though that

1:47:351:47:40

easterly wind will be cut off.

High-pressure drifts into the

1:47:401:47:43

Atlantic and we will see the

northerly winds instead coming from

1:47:431:47:47

not a particularly one direction but

at least it cuts off that really

1:47:471:47:51

icy, cold Siberian error that we

have got at the moment that brings

1:47:511:47:53

the risk of ice and snow. Bitterly

cold at the moment in contrast to

1:47:531:47:57

last week and a real issue we think

with snow. As you saw, those amber

1:47:571:48:02

warnings. For the north-east of

England and south-east England and

1:48:021:48:05

then later on tonight in southern

areas of England and Wales, I'm

1:48:051:48:10

afraid it's not great news, is it?

Oh, dear. You're just the deliverer

1:48:101:48:16

of the news. You are not making it.

Thank you. See you later.

1:48:161:48:21

We'll be back with

the headlines at 8.

1:48:211:48:23

Now it's for Newswatch

with Samira Amhed.

1:48:231:48:27

Hello and welcome to Newswatch.

1:48:271:48:33

Was the BBC too slow to report

on claims that up to 1000 children

1:48:331:48:36

in Telford may have been victims

of abuse by grooming gangs

1:48:361:48:39

of mainly Pakistani heritage?

1:48:391:48:47

And as calls are made

for the Kremlin-backed TV station

1:48:481:48:54

Russia Today to be taken off the air

in Britain, should question

1:48:541:48:57

Time have chosen one

of its presenters as a guest?

1:48:571:49:00

First, the nerve agent attack

on Sergei Skripal and his daughter

1:49:001:49:03

Yulia continued to dominate the news

agenda this week, raising many

1:49:031:49:05

questions for BBC News.

1:49:051:49:06

One was the extent to

which Theresa May's unequivocal

1:49:061:49:09

statement that Russia was culpable

for the attack should be taken

1:49:091:49:13

on trust or challenged.

1:49:131:49:16

Some members of the audience felt

the BBC had erred too much

1:49:161:49:19

in the former direction,

with Derek Coulson writing:

1:49:191:49:27

And George Skinner agreed:

1:49:331:49:40

The Prime Minister

announced on Wednesday a

1:49:401:49:45

number of measures to be

taken against Russia,

1:49:451:49:46

but not one that had

1:49:461:49:54

been widely mooted -

taking the television

1:49:561:50:02

station Russia Today

1:50:021:50:04

off the air in the UK.

1:50:041:50:06

The broadcaster is widely

regarded as a mouthpiece

1:50:061:50:09

for the Kremlin which made

the choice of one of the panellists

1:50:091:50:12

on BBC One's Question Time

a surprise

1:50:121:50:13

to some people.

1:50:131:50:16

A broadcaster with the Russian

funded TV channel RTE

1:50:161:50:18

and presenter of a weekly current

affairs programme on that channel,

1:50:181:50:21

Afshin Ratanzi.

1:50:211:50:22

That guest booking was already

causing concern before

1:50:221:50:26

the programme went out on Thursday

with Matthew Hilbert, tweeting:

1:50:261:50:34

It is not the first

time journalists from

1:50:431:50:51

Russia Today have appeared

on BBC News and we asked

1:50:521:50:54

the BBC whether it was

1:50:541:50:56

appropriate for them to do so?

1:50:561:50:57

They told us:

1:50:571:51:05

The Russian theme continued that

evening as Newsnight

1:51:101:51:15

on BBC Two ran an item which irked

some viewers not so much for its

1:51:151:51:18

content but more for

the studio background.

1:51:181:51:25

Did Jeremy Corbyn misread

the mood of his party in the

1:51:251:51:28

Commons yesterday when he refused

to point the finger at Russia?

1:51:281:51:31

Last night, a group

of Labour backbenchers

1:51:311:51:33

said it unequivocally,

that they accept the Russian state's

1:51:331:51:35

culpability for the spy poisoning.

1:51:351:51:40

Some people felt the photograph

of Jeremy Corbyn in

1:51:401:51:42

a Russian-style hat,

1:51:421:51:43

surrounded by a red

picture of the Kremlin

1:51:431:51:45

portrayed the Labour leader

as a collaborator with Moscow.

1:51:451:51:47

Susan was one of them and recorded

1:51:471:51:49

this video for us.

1:51:491:51:50

I felt compelled to

contact you regarding the

1:51:501:51:52

Newsnight programme last

night and the portrayal

1:51:521:51:54

of Jeremy Corbyn

in

1:51:541:51:58

some kind of a Russian hat next

to a portrayal of the Kremlin.

1:51:581:52:02

I feel that this is

a very biased depiction

1:52:021:52:06

of the man and those more gullible

in society will absolutely associate

1:52:061:52:11

Jeremy Corbyn with

Russia and Russians.

1:52:111:52:16

I am only interested in justice

and honesty and I don't see

1:52:161:52:19

any of that here.

1:52:191:52:20

Very disappointed.

1:52:201:52:28

Last weekend, the Sunday Mirror said

it had uncovered Britain's worst

1:52:291:52:34

ever child grooming scandal

with claims that up to 1,000 girls

1:52:341:52:37

had been abused since the 1980s.

1:52:371:52:40

Over the next two days,

other newspapers

1:52:401:52:41

followed that up extensively,

but there were only limited

1:52:411:52:43

mentions on BBC News.

1:52:431:52:49

Scores of people wondered why,

with one of them, David, leaving

1:52:491:52:52

as this phone message

on Tuesday morning.

1:52:521:52:53

Hi, I woke up this morning

to the horrific stories about the

1:52:531:52:56

child abuse in Telford,

so I thought I would

1:52:561:52:59

go on to the BBC app

which I

1:52:591:53:01

use regularly and lo and behold

there was nothing about it.

1:53:011:53:05

On your top five

stories on the website

1:53:051:53:09

there's one about pork pies and one

about the dangers of Chinese

1:53:091:53:12

takeaways.

1:53:121:53:13

Are you going to cover this scandal?

1:53:131:53:15

The BBC was accused in the press

of ignoring the story and

1:53:151:53:19

Adam agreed, writing:

1:53:191:53:27

On Tuesday, the Victoria

Derbyshire show

1:53:411:53:44

interviewed a victim of child

exploitation in

1:53:441:53:49

Telford, but it was not until

Wednesday the BBC bulletins ran a

1:53:491:53:51

report on the subject.

1:53:511:53:55

Night-time in Telford.

1:53:551:53:59

Recent reports say up to 1,000 girls

could have been sexually

1:53:591:54:02

abused in the town over

the last four decades.

1:54:021:54:10

The police here say at the moment

they are dealing with

1:54:111:54:13

less than 50 cases.

1:54:131:54:14

For many the BBC's reaction

was too little, too

1:54:141:54:17

late.

1:54:171:54:18

Trevor Bell thought:

1:54:181:54:26

Let's put that

to James Stevenson, the BBC's

1:54:301:54:32

News editor, who joins me now.

1:54:321:54:37

Can we start with

the story broke in the

1:54:371:54:39

Sunday Mirror, when did the BBC

national News think it worth

1:54:391:54:42

reporting?

1:54:421:54:43

So immediately we could see

it was a good and strong piece

1:54:431:54:46

of journalism by the Sunday Mirror

and it was widely covered in our

1:54:461:54:50

paper review and prominently

on Sunday and we saw it was a story

1:54:501:54:54

that we needed to follow up

and we began to do that.

1:54:541:54:58

So as early as Monday

morning, the Victoria

1:54:581:55:00

Derbyshire programme

was leading its output

1:55:001:55:02

on the story and later

that

1:55:021:55:10

day the World at One interviewed

the leader of Telford Council to

1:55:111:55:14

challenge him about

what was going on.

1:55:141:55:15

We quickly saw it was a story that

needed to be covered and it

1:55:151:55:19

needed our original reporting effort

to follow up and that's what we

1:55:191:55:22

did.

1:55:221:55:24

We heard from a viewer who said

he used the news app and was

1:55:241:55:28

wondering when did the story

appeared on the front page on the

1:55:281:55:31

website?

1:55:311:55:32

So there was a story on the website

on Monday and that was on

1:55:321:55:35

the England index.

1:55:351:55:36

There are various developments

in the story as the

1:55:361:55:38

week has gone on, and I am sure you

have seen and the viewers have seen

1:55:381:55:42

how the story has developed,

so the initial suggestion

1:55:421:55:44

was possibly 1,000 victims

and that was based not on

1:55:441:55:47

hard information but on an

extrapolation based on work with an

1:55:471:55:50

academic.

1:55:501:55:58

So we pursued it and we weighted

the story and we looked at it

1:55:591:56:04

in depth and it is worth saying,

to address your point directly,

1:56:041:56:07

that we are in the middle of this

huge spy

1:56:071:56:09

drama and scandal and poisoning

scandal in Salisbury and that has

1:56:091:56:12

consumed a huge amount of our

airtime, as has the death of Ken

1:56:121:56:15

Dodd and later in the week Stephen

Hawking, so even in a busy news

1:56:151:56:20

period this has been an

exceptionally busy news week and we

1:56:201:56:22

have tried to cover the Telford

story in the mix amongst all the

1:56:221:56:26

other things that we

have been doing.

1:56:261:56:29

I suppose audiences would say

in a busy news week this is a really

1:56:291:56:32

important news story.

1:56:321:56:33

That is certainly true

and I would like to

1:56:331:56:36

challenge an idea that I think

viewers might be left with by the

1:56:361:56:43

sequence they have just seen.

1:56:431:56:44

This is a scandal that

has been unfolding in

1:56:441:56:46

Telford over many years and we have

been covering it in great depth and

1:56:461:56:50

with great prominence

during that time.

1:56:501:56:54

So the operation Chalice brought

to light the scale of abuse

1:56:541:56:57

in Telford.

1:56:571:56:58

Then there was a criminal

prosecution which saw seven

1:56:581:57:00

men being sent to prison

a few years ago.

1:57:001:57:04

So we have consistently been

reporting this story as it has gone

1:57:041:57:07

along and we have done

so again this week.

1:57:071:57:14

The TV bulletins are where millions

of people are expected to

1:57:141:57:18

be told what the big important

stories are and it was not until

1:57:181:57:21

Wednesday, three days later,

that there was an actual

1:57:211:57:23

report about Telford

on the national bulletins.

1:57:231:57:25

Why?

1:57:251:57:26

It was covered in brief on the news

at ten on Tuesday night.

1:57:261:57:29

As I have explained,

we have a very busy

1:57:291:57:31

news period and there are a limited

number of stories we can cover.

1:57:311:57:34

The reason it became

a network TV bulletin

1:57:341:57:37

story on Wednesday

was

1:57:371:57:39

because partly because

of our journalism.

1:57:391:57:42

We interviewed the police

in Telford, we interviewed a

1:57:421:57:47

social worker in Telford, it was

raised at Prime Minister's Question

1:57:471:57:50

Time and the Prime

Minister reacted to it.

1:57:501:57:53

Even in this busy period, that

obviously deserved the attention it

1:57:531:57:56

got on the main TV

bulletins that day.

1:57:561:57:58

You will know what BBC viewers

are saying and we have had hundreds

1:57:581:58:02

of complaints into the BBC.

1:58:021:58:05

It said it looks like

the BBC felt awkward

1:58:051:58:09

giving the story prominence because

it was about white victims and

1:58:091:58:13

Pakistani heritage abusers.

1:58:131:58:16

I know that is a view

that some people

1:58:161:58:18

hold, I really don't

think it is the case.

1:58:181:58:24

The BBC has just won a Royal

television Society award.

1:58:241:58:31

We have done a great deal of

coverage on this area of abuse and

1:58:311:58:35

this terrible story in Telford also

elsewhere in the country.

1:58:351:58:38

The BBC has just won

a Royal television

1:58:381:58:42

Society award for the excellent

documentary about abuse in the North

1:58:421:58:45

East of England based

around Newcastle.

1:58:451:58:47

That was second story on the TV news

three weeks ago, so we

1:58:471:58:51

have done a great deal of work.

1:58:511:58:57

On Rotherham where

a lot of this stuff,

1:58:571:59:00

this terrible situation came more

fully to light for example.

1:59:001:59:02

So we have certainly

committed to covering

1:59:021:59:04

what is a harrowing and terrible

story and we have done it

1:59:041:59:07

consistently over time.

1:59:071:59:10

You will know that

coverage of previous

1:59:101:59:14

grooming scandals with

this racial element,

1:59:141:59:17

viewers every time feel

the

1:59:171:59:20

BBC runs shy of reporting these

stories prominently.

1:59:201:59:21

Do you think the BBC needs

to rethink how it runs

1:59:211:59:24

and reports on these stories?

1:59:241:59:32

No, I think we are

doing the right thing

1:59:321:59:36

and I think we are very determined

to get to these terrible and dark

1:59:361:59:39

and difficult stories, not just this

one but across the whole range.

1:59:391:59:42

What I do think is

true to say is that

1:59:421:59:44

before the full nature

and scale of what was

1:59:441:59:47

going on in Rotherham

and

1:59:471:59:48

Rochdale and Oxford

and other places came out,

1:59:481:59:51

there was not as great

an

1:59:511:59:55

understanding of how profound

problem and how deep this ran and if

1:59:552:00:00

you go back a decade,

I think you can definitely say

2:00:002:00:02

that the story with the issue

did not get the

2:00:022:00:05

attention it probably deserved

at that point and that is something

2:00:052:00:07

everyone has had to reflect on.

2:00:072:00:09

James Stevenson, thank you.

2:00:092:00:10

The UK ambassadors summoned to a

meeting in

2:00:382:00:44

meeting in Moscow and other Russian

exiles are being contacted to

2:00:482:00:50

discuss their safety in Britain.

2:00:502:00:56

Good morning, it's Saturday

the 17th of March.

2:01:022:01:04

Also this morning:

2:01:042:01:05

Police launch a murder investigation

after two women are shot dead

2:01:052:01:08

at a house in East Sussex.

2:01:082:01:15

100 flights are cancelled

and drivers are told to expect

2:01:152:01:17

disruption as the "mini beast

from the east" sweeps in.

2:01:172:01:22

Good morning. It will be a shock to

the system for many others today as

2:01:222:01:26

the Siberian air is returning,

bringing issues with ice and snow.

2:01:262:01:31

There are numerous warnings out,

including amber warnings from the

2:01:312:01:33

Met office and I will tell you more

about those in around about a

2:01:332:01:36

quarter of an hour. It is a chilly

morning here at Twickenham and it

2:01:362:01:44

will heat up later on. The final

round of matches in the six Nations

2:01:442:01:50

championship. Ireland could win the

grand slam if they beat England.

2:01:502:01:59

The UK ambassador to Russia has been

summoned to a meeting at the Foreign

2:01:592:02:02

Minister in Moscow. It comes after

the Kremlin indicated it would

2:02:022:02:05

retaliate after the Prime Minister

expelled 23 Russian diplomats from

2:02:052:02:09

the UK.

It also comes a fortnight

after the nerve agent attack on

2:02:092:02:13

former Russian spy Sergei Skripal

and his daughter. Let's talk to

2:02:132:02:20

Richard Galpin, who is in Moscow for

us. We understand that the

2:02:202:02:22

ambassador has arrived at this

meeting.

2:02:222:02:33

Yes, he's going into this meeting

with senior Russian officials in

2:02:342:02:38

Moscow. We know that surrogate lover

of Sergei Lavrov will be here. We

2:02:382:02:54

also don't know whether there might

be other measures. Of course, this

2:02:542:02:57

is an assumption. Vladimir Putin,

the Russian president, has the final

2:02:572:03:02

say on what exactly is going to

happen, and we have known him to

2:03:022:03:06

pull some surprises in the past.

Certainly the expectation, as I say,

2:03:062:03:10

is that there will be expulsions of

British diplomats and spies. Indeed,

2:03:102:03:15

all of this happening with the

backdrop of the elections. Yes. That

2:03:152:03:21

is right. Although the elections, I

don't think it is really feeding

2:03:212:03:24

into the elections, the whole issue

of Sergei Skripal. I think it is

2:03:242:03:31

maybe the decision to go ahead with

this, whatever they will come out

2:03:312:03:35

with today could help Vladimir Putin

in some respects. If it is a tough

2:03:352:03:42

response with strong retaliatory

measures, then that does feed into

2:03:422:03:44

the whole narrative that Mr Putin

likes in this sense of being the

2:03:442:03:50

strong man, the person who is

standing up Russia against a very

2:03:502:03:54

aggressive Western powers who are

trying to mash and eight and box in

2:03:542:03:58

Russia. Thanks very much.

2:03:582:04:05

Police investigating the murder

of a Russian man in London say

2:04:062:04:08

they have begun contacting

other Russian exiles in Britain

2:04:082:04:11

to discuss their safety.

2:04:112:04:12

Forensics teams have

continued working at the home

2:04:122:04:14

of 68-year Nikolai Glushkov,

who was found dead on Monday.

2:04:142:04:17

But police say at this stage

2:04:172:04:24

-- John McManus reports.

2:04:242:04:26

68-year-old Nikolai Glushkov,

found dead at his home on this

2:04:262:04:28

unassuming road in

Southwest London on Monday.

2:04:282:04:30

But Mr Glushkov's life

was anything but ordinary.

2:04:302:04:32

A post mortem has revealed

he was murdered, killed

2:04:322:04:34

by compression to the neck.

2:04:342:04:42

Unusually, counterterrorism police

are leading the investigation

2:04:442:04:46

because of Mr Glushkov's past.

2:04:462:04:47

In the 90s he was the director

of Russian airline Aeroflot,

2:04:472:04:50

but sought political asylum

in the UK and was still being

2:04:502:04:52

sued by Russia.

2:04:522:05:00

-- pursued.

2:05:022:05:04

He was friends with Russian

businessmen Boris Berezovsky

2:05:042:05:05

who was found dead in 2013.

2:05:052:05:07

An open verdict was recorded

but Mr Glushkov believed

2:05:072:05:09

he had been murdered.

2:05:092:05:17

The Russians who died in the UK

water may be suspicious

2:05:172:05:22

circumstances are being re-examined.

2:05:222:05:24

Some observers believe

it is time to join the dots.

2:05:242:05:27

Mr Glushkov's death fits

into a wider pattern of the last 12

2:05:272:05:30

years of Russian opponents

dropping dead across Europe.

2:05:302:05:32

The consequences for the Kremlin

of this were limited to far too

2:05:322:05:34

long, the UK response

as recently been much stronger,

2:05:342:05:42

but there's still an awful lot

we could do.

2:05:452:05:49

The former PR executive Lord Bell

a friend of Mr Glushkov has told

2:05:492:05:52

the BBC he suspects he was killed

after being deemed a traitor

2:05:522:05:55

by the Russian state.

2:05:552:05:56

Police say that at present

there is no link between the murder

2:05:562:05:59

in London and the poisoning

of Sergei Skripal and his

2:05:592:06:01

daughter in Salisbury.

2:06:012:06:02

But some Russian exiles are being

contacted about their safety.

2:06:022:06:09

Officers responded immediately

when they got a report of a shooting

2:06:092:06:11

at a house at around 8pm last night.

2:06:112:06:17

A 35-year-old man has been arrested.

The victims were known to be

2:06:172:06:22

suspect. Police say they are not

looking for anybody else in

2:06:222:06:26

connection with the shooting.

2:06:262:06:31

The Met office has issued an amber

warning ahead of another cold snap.

2:06:312:06:36

More than 100 flights have been

cancelled ahead of the predicted bad

2:06:362:06:42

weather, and motorists are asked to

avoid trans-Pennine roads.

2:06:422:06:47

Almost 1,000 elderly people

a day could be admitted

2:06:472:06:50

to hospital because of falls,

by the end of the decade,

2:06:502:06:52

according to figures seen

by the Local Government Association.

2:06:522:06:57

It has prompted calls for more

funding for adult social care.

2:06:572:07:02

After a fall if someone does not

recover fully they are housebound,

2:07:022:07:04

they may need to be provided

with home help, meals on wheels,

2:07:042:07:07

and it can also have

wider impacts on health,

2:07:072:07:09

and it is often the case that

when a person has a serious fall

2:07:092:07:13

it is one of the things that

precipitate the slippery slope

2:07:132:07:15

of them becoming housebound.

2:07:152:07:20

The former deputy director of the

FBI has been dramatically fired just

2:07:212:07:24

hours before he was due to formally

retire. Andrew McCabe said his

2:07:242:07:29

sacking had been politically

motivated and claimed it was part of

2:07:292:07:31

a wider effort to taint the FBI.

President Trump tweeted it had been

2:07:312:07:38

a great day for democracy.

2:07:382:07:43

10,000 -- tens of thousands of

people have been at sea in a

2:07:432:07:46

Northern Syrian town as they fight a

terrorist group. The UN estimates

2:07:462:07:51

that almost 50,000 people have been

displaced in the past few days.

2:07:512:07:58

Reports from the area are that

dozens of people were killed in air

2:07:582:08:00

strikes on Friday. A faulty ski lift

through people from the seats city

2:08:002:08:04

Mountain resort in Georgia. As it

malfunctioned, people using it were

2:08:042:08:08

forced to jump out of their seats to

safety in the snow below and those

2:08:082:08:11

standing nearby were forced to dive

out of the way as the last raced

2:08:112:08:15

towards them. No reason has been

given for the fold.

2:08:152:08:20

Three children are being linked for

infections that may be linked to the

2:08:202:08:24

water supply any hospital in Greater

Glasgow. NHS Glasgow and greater

2:08:242:08:29

clout are investigating after

discovering that the -- it.

2:08:292:08:41

Perhaps you have a sweet tooth and

deep pockets. If so, this may be for

2:08:412:08:45

you. The world's most expensive

chocolate has gone on display in

2:08:452:08:48

Portugal. Oh. Sorry. So, it is

filled with diamond... This diamond

2:08:482:08:58

shaped truth is filled with saffron

threads, white truffle, Madagascan

2:08:582:09:05

vanilla, and quartered in 23 carat

edible gold. Just 1000 are being

2:09:052:09:09

made. If you want one, if you fancy

trying it, the cost will be £6,800.

2:09:092:09:15

You know, that... It looks very on

the rolling. -- underwhelming. I do

2:09:152:09:24

not have the money, but I do not

think I would.

2:09:242:09:27

I do not want one. I am going to say

that, I do not want one.

2:09:272:09:31

I will make a note.

We will look ahead to some of the

2:09:312:09:36

weather problems. Quite a few

problems across the UK today. Ice

2:09:362:09:41

and snow predicted. Helen has the

details in a few minutes.

2:09:412:09:45

Almost 1,000 elderly people

a day could be admitted

2:09:452:09:48

to hospital because of falls,

by the end of the decade,

2:09:482:09:50

according to figures seen

by the Local Government Association.

2:09:502:09:52

The LGA says many falls can be

avoided

2:09:522:09:54

and they want more money

on measures to prevent them,

2:09:542:09:57

as Marta Newman reports.

2:09:572:09:59

Falling over can have a huge impact

on older people, as well as adult

2:09:592:10:03

social care and health services. It

is a common but often overlooked

2:10:032:10:07

cause of injury. It can lead to

considerable distress, pain, a loss

2:10:072:10:13

of independence and even death.

2:10:132:10:16

considerable distress, pain, a loss

of independence and even death. NHS

2:10:162:10:16

figures show around 300,000 people

aged 65 and over were admitted to

2:10:162:10:23

hospital last year due to falling.

The number of fall related hospital

2:10:232:10:29

admissions is rising year-on-year,

and it is expected that

2:10:292:10:32

admissions is rising year-on-year,

and it is expected that by 2021,

2:10:322:10:33

there will be nearly 1000 new cases

every day. Around one in five foals

2:10:332:10:39

are caused by slipping, tripping or

stumbling. The Local Government

2:10:392:10:45

Association says it costs the NHS

more than £2 billion per year. The

2:10:452:10:50

LGA, which represents 370 councils

in England and Wales, the putting

2:10:502:10:54

more of that money into council

services to prevent falls would

2:10:542:10:59

improve the quality of life of an

ever increasing ageing population.

2:10:592:11:04

We think the track record of the

Council programmes that are already

2:11:042:11:07

in place is showing that we can help

many older people stay in their

2:11:072:11:12

houses for longer, enjoy a healthier

life and this is about saving the

2:11:122:11:15

taxpayer at some money and enhancing

their experience.

The Department of

2:11:152:11:20

Health and social care is say they

have dedicated £9.4 billion in

2:11:202:11:24

social care funding over the next

three years to support local

2:11:242:11:30

authorities so that comprehensive

fall prevention plans can be

2:11:302:11:33

developed.

2:11:332:11:37

Michelle Donnelly-Stevenson

is a falls prevention

2:11:392:11:40

adviser and James Beaumont

is a physiotherapist.

2:11:402:11:43

Good morning to you both. James,

give of an idea of some of the

2:11:432:11:49

injuries you are seeing. We are

seeing that there are more likely to

2:11:492:11:53

be more older people admitted to

hospital for treatment.

Certainly

2:11:532:11:59

the prevalence of folders

increasing. The sort of things we

2:11:592:12:03

see our hip fractures being one of

the worst ones. Mortality, for one

2:12:032:12:09

year after a hip fracture is still

quite high. Head injuries, wrist

2:12:092:12:13

fractures. Even going as low down

as, you know, knocking people's

2:12:132:12:18

confidence. They become more

housebound. It is a real problem.

2:12:182:12:23

Michelle, you try to do with as a

practical level by advising people

2:12:232:12:27

about this. The statistics tell us

more people will have these kind of

2:12:272:12:29

problems. In practice, what can be

to help?

What we have currently been

2:12:292:12:35

running across Lancashire is a

project funded by Lancashire County

2:12:352:12:40

Council called Steady On. We look at

practical tips and advice given to

2:12:402:12:45

older adults to try to reduce the

risk of falling. Common day-to-day

2:12:452:12:48

practical things that we can do.

Like what?

The word steady is an

2:12:482:12:53

acronym.

2:12:532:13:00

acronym. S is slippers, footwear,

tablet and medication, the

2:13:002:13:03

environment, activity and exercise,

do you fall and do you have a plan?

2:13:032:13:09

And I care and keeping on top of

that.

All of that advice, why is

2:13:092:13:16

that are now needed as opposed to

ten or 15 years ago? As you get

2:13:162:13:19

older, I mean, we see that you tend

to follow and you have described the

2:13:192:13:25

damage because of bone density, why

do we need that advice now?

I think

2:13:252:13:32

it has always been needed. It is

long-standing. It is becoming more

2:13:322:13:37

awareness is a lot better and

looking at protecting, kind of, our

2:13:372:13:41

older adults and future generations.

Obviously, as James has said, we are

2:13:412:13:46

leading a little bit longer and

there are more and it is trying to

2:13:462:13:53

put yourself in the best position

possible. Thinking about it early.

2:13:532:13:55

Our project looks at 55 plus.

Education and the reiteration of the

2:13:552:13:59

importance of the practical things

we can do to keep as an dependent on

2:13:592:14:03

the cell care we can provide for

ourselves.

James, people all or a

2:14:032:14:07

young are encouraged to be active,

so the balance between somebody who

2:14:072:14:12

is of a certain age, encouraging

them to call for walks and quad

2:14:122:14:16

mobile, at the same time be aware of

the potential risk. It is a delicate

2:14:162:14:24

balance.

It certainly is. The

research would suggest that anybody

2:14:242:14:27

over the age of 65 should try to

maintain an active lifestyle, and it

2:14:272:14:32

does say that anybody doing 30

minutes of strength and balance

2:14:322:14:38

exercises three times per week and

going for a walk of about 30 minutes

2:14:382:14:42

twice a week is going to

significantly reduce their risk of

2:14:422:14:45

having a fall. Obviously, you're not

going to dig up any sort of unsafe

2:14:452:14:51

practices, so we would definitely

recommend that you get advice and

2:14:512:14:54

the supervision of services like

your local physio department. They

2:14:542:15:00

advise you on what you should be

doing.

And tried to get a sense of,

2:15:002:15:06

Michelle, maybe you can help, is

those people who are doing things

2:15:062:15:11

they shouldn't? Overdoing it?

Somebody in their late 80s trying to

2:15:112:15:14

go for a walk in the snow? Or is

this people just... Accidents just

2:15:142:15:19

happen in the home, people doing

things they need to do to get to the

2:15:192:15:24

cooker, or...?

I perfectly

understand. What we would both say,

2:15:242:15:30

and anybody in our position, is that

we cannot prevent every fall. It

2:15:302:15:37

could happen to anybody. We want to

reduce the risk as much as possible.

2:15:372:15:42

We are not think that people are

taking too many risks but it is just

2:15:422:15:46

remembering things that we can make

a difference in. The practical

2:15:462:15:52

day-to-day, modifiable factors that

we could look at to reduce risk,

2:15:522:15:54

despite her age, in all honesty, but

we are looking at older adults

2:15:542:15:58

obviously.

Thank you, both, for joining us.

2:15:582:16:07

Thank you, both, for joining us. We

were talking about being careful.

2:16:072:16:09

People may need to be careful with

the ice?

2:16:092:16:15

People may need to be careful with

the ice? Absolutely right. Not just

2:16:152:16:19

to do this snowy weekend, but

warning that already for the ice

2:16:192:16:22

risk on Monday. It is

2:16:222:16:24

warning that already for the ice

risk on Monday. It is the snow and

2:16:242:16:25

ice combined that will cause the

problems. We are seeing some

2:16:252:16:28

flurries of snow already. Amber

warnings led from the Met office.

2:16:282:16:31

This is being sent in from

Cambridge. We will try to show you

2:16:312:16:35

some more when the next hour or so.

It is cold out bitterly cold. The

2:16:352:16:40

easterly winds that we had a couple

of weeks ago have

2:16:402:16:53

returned. This time, they will not

last as long but very strong, gusty

2:16:542:16:56

winds. For the west coast of England

and Wales, a real buffeting going on

2:16:562:16:59

at the moment. The snow showers are

starting to pack into eastern areas.

2:16:592:17:02

This is the dividing line for Van --

from that milder Atlantic to be much

2:17:022:17:05

eastern area. This will turn

progressively to sleet and snow

2:17:052:17:07

throughout the day. It is falling in

the children's at the moment. This

2:17:072:17:09

will bring the heaviest snow as we

go through the day. It is not going

2:17:092:17:16

to feel warm! 14 degrees in the

south east yesterday. Three possibly

2:17:162:17:21

today, if we are lucky. The West

will be best for sunshine, the North

2:17:212:17:25

West of Scotland. But if you add on

the wind, it will feel better. A

2:17:252:17:28

real shock to the system. Take note,

particularly if you're heading out

2:17:282:17:34

for these sporting events. Let's

take a closer look at the amber

2:17:342:17:37

warnings. Part of northern England,

Lincolnshire, across to the borders

2:17:372:17:41

of Wales we think those showers will

penetrate, one after the other. It

2:17:412:17:44

will not be the only area with the

snow, with those across the South

2:17:442:17:49

East and Essex, we will see the

largest amount of snow, and then

2:17:492:17:53

tonight a potential hazard of a more

widespread area coming in across

2:17:532:17:57

southern England and South Wales. It

could be wintry evening and night

2:17:572:18:02

team picture. Same sort of areas

getting them thick and fast and

2:18:022:18:07

across southern areas and then they

started to clump together, if that

2:18:072:18:10

is the right word. In more organised

area of snow, which the uncertainty

2:18:102:18:16

lies in how far north and east it

affects. Just a few centimetres will

2:18:162:18:20

cause significant problems, because

it will settle. Temperatures widely

2:18:202:18:23

below freezing. A penetrating frost

as well because of the strength of

2:18:232:18:28

the wind. Bitterly cold if you are

exposed overnight. Tomorrow, still

2:18:282:18:32

got that bitterly cold, strong

easterly wind blowing that snow, but

2:18:322:18:36

only slowly away, so it is good --

it could be very wintry picture

2:18:362:18:41

first thing across southern and

western areas of the country.

2:18:412:18:46

Elsewhere, still a scattering of

showers but easing off in intensity

2:18:462:18:48

and frequency later in the day as

high pressure built into the North.

2:18:482:18:51

But still cold. It might not be as

better on today but very little in

2:18:512:18:55

it. Minus six at better East wind,

which will cut off. You have heard

2:18:552:19:00

us talking about is that this

morning. It is a short lived when.

2:19:002:19:03

We pick up a northerly, not much

warmer but it cuts off that really

2:19:032:19:08

dry, cold air. That biting cold air.

It does not believe you to defrost,

2:19:082:19:13

and therefore the ice, problems

2:19:132:19:16

It does not believe you to defrost,

and therefore the ice, problems,

2:19:162:19:17

Charlie, because it will still be

cold overnight. Where that's nobody

2:19:172:19:20

little bit in the March sunshine

during the day, it will then of

2:19:202:19:24

course refreeze the evening and

overnight. -- where the snow so is a

2:19:242:19:29

bit during the night.

2:19:292:19:33

overnight. -- where the snow so is a

bit during the night.

2:19:332:19:33

Getting the news and from Russia, we

understand that the UK ambassador to

2:19:332:19:39

Russia was summoned for a meeting

just a few hours ago. The Russian

2:19:392:19:42

Foreign Ministry says it is causing

the British Council in Russia. News

2:19:422:19:47

coming through as well. We

understand that there will be an

2:19:472:19:50

expulsion as well. That is by

Russia, also. 23 people being

2:19:502:19:57

expelled. The Russian Foreign

Ministry says it reserves the right

2:19:572:20:00

to take other measures against

Britain in event of further hostile

2:20:002:20:05

steps from London. That be imported

from the Russian Foreign Ministry.

2:20:052:20:09

That is coming out of a meeting

taking place just in the last few

2:20:092:20:13

minutes with the British ambassador

being called in in Moscow, and we

2:20:132:20:18

will bring you more details from

that. We will go to our

2:20:182:20:21

correspondent in Moscow shortly. It

is 8:20am. Time for you look at the

2:20:212:20:26

newspapers.

2:20:262:20:30

Historian and braodcaster

Tessa Dunlop is here to tell us

2:20:302:20:32

what's caught her eye.

2:20:322:20:35

Good morning. We will take a look at

what you were looking at in that

2:20:352:20:38

moment. We will go through the front

page this morning. We will start

2:20:382:20:42

with the Daily Telegraph. It is

Saturday. It is taking illegal, of

2:20:422:20:47

course, at the lead story, the

murder probe after a Putin critic

2:20:472:20:51

was strangled. Scotland Yard has

launched an investigation after the

2:20:512:20:58

announcement that the London

businessman found dead had been

2:20:582:21:00

strangled. At the moment, police not

linking that to the death just

2:21:002:21:03

around two weeks ago of a former

Russian agent, a nerve agent having

2:21:032:21:08

been used in that.

On the front page of the Daily Mail,

2:21:082:21:12

betrayal beyond belief. This is the

2:21:122:21:15

On the front page of the Daily Mail,

betrayal beyond belief. This is the

2:21:152:21:15

green bomber. 18 years ago, he

entered Britain and questions being

2:21:152:21:21

asked about why. His foster parents

were not told, why the authorities

2:21:212:21:28

did nothing to try to stop him.

The Time sticking a look at the

2:21:282:21:32

story of Oxfam being hit by a second

sex scandal overheating. Looking at

2:21:322:21:38

the conduct of its staff in the

earthquake torn country. The charity

2:21:382:21:44

put female aid workers and

disasters, disaster survivors at

2:21:442:21:49

risk by keeping a senior employee in

the country for over a year after

2:21:492:21:53

realising he was a sexual predator.

And police looking at 12 new cases

2:21:532:21:57

of child sex abuse related to the

ongoing events in Telford, and They

2:21:572:22:02

are looking at events there.

2:22:022:22:04

ongoing events in Telford, and They

are looking at events there.

2:22:042:22:05

We have been bringing you up-to-date

with what has been happening in

2:22:052:22:09

terms of Russia. We understand there

are going to be 23 expulsions by the

2:22:092:22:12

Russian Foreign Ministry and it says

it reserves the right to respond to

2:22:122:22:15

hostile actions by the UK. On the

front page of the Financial Times,

2:22:152:22:24

examining how our politicians are

dealing with this... Is it vertical

2:22:242:22:28

at a crisis, at least in diplomatic

terms?

We are certainly in the eye

2:22:282:22:34

of the storm at the moment. The

world watching Britain. Our

2:22:342:22:39

controversial Foreign Secretary,

Boris Johnson, has caught the eye of

2:22:392:22:42

the FT. He inflames row with Moscow

by claiming Vladimir Putin ordered

2:22:422:22:48

the poisoning. This is a step

further than Theresa May and Downing

2:22:482:22:52

Street had not commented on Boris

Johnson saying it was overwhelmingly

2:22:522:22:56

likely this was authorised by

Vladimir Putin. I mean... Talk

2:22:562:23:01

about... Going outside the lines,

almost, your former Foreign

2:23:012:23:05

Secretary. You would expect the

Prime Minister to lead in this

2:23:052:23:09

instance but the inference here,

certainly from the FT, is loose

2:23:092:23:11

lipped. We need to hold tight and

remain credible. We have this

2:23:112:23:19

fragile coalition of big leaders

standing with us. It has echoes of

2:23:192:23:24

Gavin Williamson, the Defence

Secretary, talking of Russia's

2:23:242:23:27

shutting up. It seems like Theresa

May is surrounded almost by puppets

2:23:272:23:32

and pretenders, which is a shame,

because our Prime Minister, I think,

2:23:322:23:37

has handled this crisis very well,

and certainly that is the feeling in

2:23:372:23:40

the Daily Telegraph. They have at

last been able to refer to her as a

2:23:402:23:46

strong and, well, cradle... The joke

being she is holding a newborn baby

2:23:462:23:52

and her personal ratings apparently

have gone up. 16% of the British

2:23:522:23:57

public approval of the way she has

handled it. That is in comparison

2:23:572:24:00

with Jeremy Corbyn, who is sitting

on 18% approval, because he has done

2:24:002:24:04

the exact opposite of Boris Johnson.

Boris Johnson thing there is

2:24:042:24:09

definitely a link with Vladimir

Putin and Jeremy Corbyn refusing to

2:24:092:24:12

explicitly even condemn rush hour,

or say that it is explicitly

2:24:122:24:17

Russia's fault. A very interesting

and fractious, actually, what is

2:24:172:24:22

happening on the British political

scene, let alone the response we are

2:24:222:24:27

expecting from our allies.

It is worth reminding people that we

2:24:272:24:30

are getting news from Moscow that 23

diplomats will be expelled. It had

2:24:302:24:37

been predicted this would be a

tit-for-tat situation. We waited

2:24:372:24:41

quite a few days for this reaction.

That is exactly what it is.

It is

2:24:412:24:46

fascinating that have chosen 23 on

the nose. Of course, the backdrop to

2:24:462:24:50

this...

It is in reaction to the UK

included the Russian diplomats will

2:24:502:24:56

be expelled.

In a ring. The backdrop

is this increased heating up of what

2:24:562:25:01

some people are referring to as the

Cold War because this second murder

2:25:012:25:04

of an exile in London being

identified in the police. No

2:25:042:25:07

connection at the moment to Russia

but, nonetheless, he was a critic of

2:25:072:25:13

pigeon's resume. Sticking with

chilly winds from the east. The Were

2:25:132:25:17

really going for it with the second

beast, and referring to Labour's

2:25:172:25:24

been at risk. That is the warning,

apparently. We should all know off

2:25:242:25:27

by heart are yellow, amber and

redcoats. They are claiming they

2:25:272:25:31

will be inches of snow this weekend.

We are literally a couple of weeks

2:25:312:25:34

away from Easter. I am meant to be

climbing up a Scottish mountain with

2:25:342:25:40

eight London children and I think...

Win is this?

The first week of

2:25:402:25:45

April. In fact, I think the tops are

going to be crampons and the specs.

2:25:452:25:52

Helen has told us, and we have been

talking to her all morning, lots of

2:25:522:25:56

people take the advice, there are

warnings from highways England about

2:25:562:26:00

not driving in trans-Pennine routes,

Helen says they have had snow in

2:26:002:26:05

June. It is not majorly unusual.

I

know, but I am hoping that there is

2:26:052:26:11

a deep defrosting and lots of really

warm weather.

If you're claiming the

2:26:112:26:16

peaks in Scotland, it is going to be

cold and there will be snow. Just be

2:26:162:26:20

ready.

Taking nine-year-olds up, I

think they might need more than

2:26:202:26:24

trainers!

They will be OK.

Lots of thick socks.

2:26:242:26:29

You pick out a story in relation to

sugary drinks. How long have we been

2:26:292:26:34

talking about what to do about the

drinks that particularly young

2:26:342:26:38

people drink a lot of? It was

across-the-board, though.

It is

2:26:382:26:43

working, Charlie.

Is it?

We have cut

back on sugary drinks job in half by

2:26:432:26:49

one third. There is a rather

wonderful quote here that says the

2:26:492:26:53

reason we have cut back is because

"Schools treat sugary drinks like

2:26:532:26:58

arsenic is these days." I always

think it is a terribly middle-class

2:26:582:27:05

thing to only allow your children to

drink water. It is the sign of an

2:27:052:27:10

attentive mother. Some do not even

allow squashed. Apparently the

2:27:102:27:12

message is getting through.

Interestingly, a sugar attacks on

2:27:122:27:17

fizzy drinks is coming in on the

next month. In fact, we have taken

2:27:172:27:20

the initiative and have not been hit

by our pockets. We have recognised

2:27:202:27:24

that this is something that needs

stopped.

But we have waited until a

2:27:242:27:28

time when two thirds of adults and

one third of children are in peace

2:27:282:27:33

-- obese.

Indeed, we have. We are

still at crisis level. Elsewhere,

2:27:332:27:37

lots of debate about whether to have

your scorns with cream on the top or

2:27:372:27:41

bottom and I wonder whether the

cream should be on the scorn at all.

2:27:412:27:45

Maybe it is not the fizzy drinks!

The Queen has said which way round

2:27:452:27:51

it should be.

The Queen likes it was

the cream on top. If you go to a

2:27:512:27:57

Buckingham Palace garden party...

Surely you to have been to a couple.

2:27:572:28:00

When you have been to one, the Queen

is on top.

2:28:002:28:03

I have been but I do not think I

have had is gone.

2:28:032:28:07

I do not like scorns.

At least use the scorn. Because

2:28:072:28:16

"scoan" is a sign you come from the

side.

2:28:162:28:18

What is wrong with that? -- at least

use the scone.

2:28:182:28:28

Just to recap, Russia has expelled

23, or is going to, British

2:28:282:28:32

diplomats in response to the UK

expelling 23. It is also holding the

2:28:322:28:42

activities of the British Council

across the country in response to

2:28:422:28:44

Britain's measures in response to

the poisoning of a former Russian

2:28:442:28:48

double agent and his daughter.

Hello, this is Breakfast with

Naga Munchetty and Charlie Stayt.

2:29:582:30:01

Naga Munchetty and Charlie Stayt.

2:30:012:30:09

First a summary of this

morning's main news.

2:30:092:30:17

this comes almost a fortnight after

the note it and attack. We can talk

2:30:212:30:27

to Richard who is in Moscow for us.

This news just coming out literally

2:30:272:30:30

in the last half hour 20 minutes or

so after the UK ambassador was

2:30:302:30:34

summoned by Russia. The news is that

Russia has expelled diplomat in

2:30:342:30:42

retaliation. Russia is now saying

that it will expelled 23 British

2:30:422:30:49

diplomats, presumably some British

spies. They will all be expelled

2:30:492:30:54

here from Moscow. 23 is the exact

number that Britain said they would

2:30:542:30:58

expel the number of Russian

intelligence agents from the UK, so

2:30:582:31:03

that is absolutely tit-for-tat. They

are saying that the agreement for

2:31:032:31:15

the consulate in St Petersburg, the

British Consulate in St Petersburg

2:31:152:31:22

will end. Finally, they are saying

that if Britain takes further

2:31:222:31:26

measures, then Russia will do the

same. So, we could have a ratcheting

2:31:262:31:29

up of their was further action from

the British side. What would be the

2:31:292:31:37

impact of ceasing operations at the

consulate? How quickly will these

2:31:372:31:40

diplomats be leaving the country?

2:31:402:31:46

diplomats be leaving the country? We

are still trying to confirm this,

2:31:462:31:48

but we understand in terms of the

expulsion of diplomats, it would be

2:31:482:31:52

the same as Britain, ie within a

week. We know that the Russian

2:31:522:31:57

intelligence agents, the 23 of them

have to live on Tuesday, so we think

2:31:572:32:01

it is going to be a week period, a

period of seven days, which the

2:32:012:32:08

British diplomats will now be given.

OK, Richard, of course, lots

2:32:082:32:13

happening this morning. He will

speak to you in half an hour as the

2:32:132:32:17

story develops.

2:32:172:32:21

Police have launched a murder

investigation after two women

2:32:212:32:23

were shot and killed at a house

warning. And ice in much of England

The former deputy director

of the FBI has been dramatically

2:32:582:33:00

fired, just hours before he was due

to formally retire.

2:33:002:33:03

Andrew McCabe said his sacking had

been politically motivated,

2:33:032:33:05

and claimed it was part of a wider

effort to taint the FBI.

President Trump tweeted it had been

2:33:412:33:45

Barnum, AKA the greatest showman.

2:33:452:33:46

The only other album that's managed

to spend longer at the top spot

2:33:462:33:49

in the UK in the last 30 years

is Adele's 21, which managed

2:33:492:33:53

11 weeks at the top.

2:33:532:33:54

Those are the main

stories this morning.

2:33:542:34:00

John has got the sport for us this

morning. Just to cap the sense of

2:34:002:34:05

occasion applicant to date, as the

end of the six Nations, it has

2:34:052:34:09

started snowing. Yes, it has.

That'll be interesting. We are going

2:34:092:34:14

to go live now to Twickenham, Karen

Island -- Karen Island complete the

2:34:142:34:24

grand slam. Boy, it looks cold

there, too.

2:34:242:34:35

there, too. Yes, I am glad I have

got my spring wardrobe on. The snow

2:34:352:34:41

is falling here at Twickenham. It is

not very springlike at all. Rewind

2:34:412:34:45

six weeks, John.

2:34:452:34:51

six weeks, John. Johnny Sexton

dropping that drop goal in overtime

2:34:512:34:55

to beat the French. You just got the

feeling that Allen had luck on their

2:34:552:35:00

side when they won that match. They

beat Italians and they beat the

2:35:002:35:05

Welsh, and then last week, they beat

Scotland. Scotland have been so

2:35:052:35:09

disappointing in this championship

because they got off to a terrible

2:35:092:35:15

start. We will come onto them in a

moment. What happened to England in

2:35:152:35:22

Paris when they lost against the

French. Two defeat in a row for

2:35:222:35:27

England who were going for a

hat-trick of titles, here. They just

2:35:272:35:31

seem to be going... Backwards. That

incredible match against Scotland

2:35:312:35:39

when they lost and then losing

against France. Can they lose three

2:35:392:35:44

in a row? If they do, then Ireland

will not just be champions, they

2:35:442:35:50

will also be Grand Slam champions,

as well. Winning the grand slam for

2:35:502:35:54

only the third time in their

history. Muted celebrations when

2:35:542:35:59

they became champions last week, but

now it is all about the clean sweep.

2:35:592:36:04

Let's hear from both camps now,

starting with the Ireland captain.

2:36:042:36:09

Everybody is aware of the

significance it has for Irish rugby

2:36:092:36:20

and this group of players. Yes,

there is nervous energy, but you

2:36:202:36:22

want to put yourself against the

best teams.

Rugby is an imperfect

2:36:222:36:28

game, so there is every team has a

certain areas of weaknesses, and we

2:36:282:36:33

are going to be good enough to

exploit those errors and weaknesses.

2:36:332:36:40

England have made so many changes,

seven in all. Ten if you count up

2:36:402:36:45

some of those positional changes.

Just the one change for Ireland, but

2:36:452:36:49

it all gets under way in Rome. The

final round of match. Scotland

2:36:492:36:56

probably finishing third is the best

that they can do. Wales against the

2:36:562:37:01

French in Cardiff, that be a battle

to see who finishes second, but it

2:37:012:37:06

is the Sea Island's championship,

and we will see if they can complete

2:37:062:37:10

the grand slam. It is to 30 PM,

here. For Wales versus France. Thank

2:37:102:37:17

you, Ollie. If anyone has a coach

they can lend him, he will be

2:37:172:37:22

grateful.

2:37:222:37:25

Great Britain are still short

of their medals target,

2:37:252:37:27

on the penultimate day

of competition at the Winter

2:37:272:37:29

Paralympics in South Korea.

2:37:292:37:30

Let's go over to Pyeongchang now -

and our reporter Kate Grey can

2:37:302:37:33

bring us up to date.

2:37:332:37:34

It looks warmer there than at

Twickenham.

Yes, it is fairly warm

2:37:342:37:40

here, today. The sun was shining and

earlier, but it is starting to set.

2:37:402:37:45

It has been a quiet day for the

Brits, just two athletes in action.

2:37:452:37:51

The first was James Whitley going in

the slalom event. They get to run

2:37:512:37:59

stand and then it is an accumulation

time. It was a very tricky course,

2:37:592:38:03

an icy way round the polls, and it

is a tough category, as well. It is

2:38:032:38:09

one of the toughest category at the

Paralympic games. He skis without

2:38:092:38:13

poles, and he skis just with his

legs. He crossed the line and

2:38:132:38:18

finished in tenth position, which is

the best result for him at these

2:38:182:38:22

games. He competed at

2:38:222:38:28

games. He competed at Saatchi, at

Sochi and finished in 15th. He is

2:38:282:38:31

deathly improving. There was also

action in the Nordic skiing. Scott

2:38:312:38:35

Meenagh was competed. -- competing.

He lost both his legs in an IED

2:38:352:38:46

explosion in Afghanistan. His main

goal is Beijing in four years' time.

2:38:462:38:51

He will look to build on his

experience here in South Korea. The

2:38:512:38:56

home nation have won their first

gold of these games. That is the

2:38:562:39:00

first Winter Paralympics gold that

they have one. Huge celebrations for

2:39:002:39:06

the host nations, but with regards

to Britain, they are one medal of

2:39:062:39:10

their targets, they have five

overall and they will have it after

2:39:102:39:14

tomorrow as it goes into alpine

skiing.

Thank you, Kate. You will

2:39:142:39:20

have two wrap up warm today if you

are going to a football match. There

2:39:202:39:25

is Premier League action. Danny is

here to tell us what is on football

2:39:252:39:29

focus later. We have got FA Cup

coming up today. We have got eight

2:39:292:39:37

teams left. Leicester against

Chelsea with Kolo canto.

2:39:372:39:47

Chelsea with Kolo canto. If you saw

part one of Jose Mourinho's press

2:39:472:39:52

conference, yesterday...

The 12

minute rant.

It is worth watching.

2:39:522:40:05

Interesting to see how he would

react if you saw another manager

2:40:052:40:10

defending his team... I am confused.

Normally what they do is some of it

2:40:102:40:19

is available on that day, and the

rest can be used the rest of the

2:40:192:40:23

week end. 12 minute rant could be

used yesterday, but there is more.

2:40:232:40:29

That is where he says, why they were

good, why we shouldn't be surprised

2:40:292:40:35

that Manchester United has gone out.

He really goes for it and it is

2:40:352:40:41

worth watching. We are also looking

at Wigan who are ticking on

2:40:412:40:44

Southampton. We will show you a

little but of that, now.

2:40:442:40:55

If you could choose,

winning the FA Cup or

2:40:552:40:57

getting a promotion,

you

2:40:572:40:58

as a manager, right there, which one

would you prefer to achieve?

2:40:582:41:01

You've tested me there

without a shadow of

2:41:012:41:03

a doubt.

2:41:032:41:04

All the questions previously

have been about if we

2:41:042:41:06

could get to the semifinal.

2:41:062:41:08

You've tested me now.

2:41:082:41:09

I think them FA Cup days

are that special that if we

2:41:092:41:12

could even dream of that,

but the main objective

2:41:122:41:14

is to be promotion.

2:41:142:41:17

If we were lucky enough

to get to the semifinal...

2:41:172:41:19

We might change!

2:41:192:41:27

That is what it means to be in web

between the FA Cup and the

2:41:272:41:32

promotion. We have got a nice peach

with Jurgen Klopp and Logan. Alex

2:41:322:41:39

McCarthy she has gone back to

believes Scotland manager. He is on

2:41:392:41:44

the show, as well. I have got a

question related to the news. All

2:41:442:41:51

the stuff relating to Russia, the

comments about the England manager.

2:41:512:41:56

There is a meeting about how

concerned some of the players are

2:41:562:41:59

about going out there. I think that

will be quite interesting.

I think

2:41:592:42:04

it'll be really in sting to keep an

eye on. Originally, you think, it is

2:42:042:42:09

never going to happen. But now, more

people are mentioning it, at some

2:42:092:42:13

point it has got to become a serious

discussion from a safety

2:42:132:42:21

discussion from a safety point view.

And for fans, as well. But the fans

2:42:222:42:24

would have thought twice about going

to Russia in the first place, and

2:42:242:42:27

now there is an extra element of

care and concern about going

2:42:272:42:29

yourself or taking your family. It

is a big talking point for next

2:42:292:42:32

week.

Thank you, Dan.

The year at

midday.

-- see you at midday.

2:42:322:42:44

It was a frustrating evening

for Hibernian as they missed

2:42:452:42:47

the chance to go third

in the Scottish Premiership.

2:42:472:42:49

Hibs went ahead in the second

minute, had their keeper

2:42:492:42:52

sent off not long after,

and held out until the final

2:42:522:42:54

stages when Chris Kane

equalised for St Johnstone.

2:42:542:43:02

A former dairy farmer landed his

first Gold Cup, yesterday.

2:43:062:43:09

The Cheltenham Gold Cup is one

of the biggest racing

2:43:092:43:11

events of the year -

and we got a contest

2:43:112:43:13

which lived up to that billing.

2:43:132:43:15

It was, literally, a two horse race

with Native River holding off

2:43:152:43:18

the favourite Might Bite.

2:43:182:43:19

That gave jockey Richard Johnson his

second Gold Cup triump -

2:43:192:43:21

and a first for trainer

Colin Tizzard.

2:43:212:43:23

Venus Williams has been knocked

out in the semi-finals

2:43:232:43:25

at Indian Wells by the 20-year-old

Russian Daria Kasatkina -

2:43:252:43:30

and what's remarkable is that

Russian Daria Kasatkina -

2:43:302:43:31

and what's remarkable is that

Kasatkina has beaten four

2:43:312:43:33

Grand Slam champions

on her way to the final -

2:43:332:43:36

Sloane Stephens, Caroline Wosniacki,

Agelique Kerber and now

2:43:362:43:38

Williams, all brushed aside.

2:43:382:43:41

She'll take on Naomi Osaka of Japan,

after she knocked out the world

2:43:412:43:44

number one Simona Halep.

2:43:442:43:47

That is all your sport, for now. We

will have more later.

2:43:472:43:52

Tens of thousands of pensioners

and low income families could be

2:43:522:43:54

putting their homes at risk

if they do not sign up

2:43:542:43:57

for a new scheme to help them

pay their mortgage interest.

2:43:572:43:59

But the Government revealed this

week that only one in ten of those

2:43:592:44:03

who get the help have agreed

to the new system.

2:44:032:44:09

That could leave 90,000 at risk.

2:44:092:44:11

Paul Lewis has been looking

at the new figures.

2:44:112:44:15

Morning, will you expended for us.

Irma if you get long-term sick, or

2:44:152:44:22

you reach pension age, and you get

means tested benefits, then you can

2:44:222:44:26

get some of the interest paid on...

The Government justifies it by

2:44:262:44:34

saying that that is cheaper by ...

It has been like that since the

2:44:342:44:42

start of the welfare state. It is a

70-year-old scheme, and from April

2:44:422:44:48

eight is changing completely. That

is just in three weeks' time. All of

2:44:482:44:53

these payments will just stop unless

the individual has signed up to turn

2:44:532:44:57

them into a loan, and they have to

take positive action, they have to

2:44:572:45:03

make a phone call, and sign a

document said that it is a lawful

2:45:032:45:07

loan set against their home, and if

they don't do that, then they will

2:45:072:45:11

no longer get help with their

mortgage, and the Government have

2:45:112:45:15

just revealed this week that only

about 10,000 out of more than

2:45:152:45:19

100,000 have actually signed up for

this loan, so the other 90,000 are

2:45:192:45:23

in real danger. Well, it is a real

risk, because we are talking about

2:45:232:45:29

people's homes. We are, and the

lenders will notice the payment

2:45:292:45:33

hasn't arrived. They will get in

touch, that could take two or three

2:45:332:45:37

months, whilst the debt is clocking

up, and these people who are on very

2:45:372:45:41

restricted incomes will find it very

hard to make that up, and

2:45:412:45:45

eventually, if they don't make any

arrangements, then they do face the

2:45:452:45:50

risk of repossession, although that

would be a long way down the tracks.

2:45:502:45:55

You don't have to accept the loan,

but it is probably the best deal

2:45:552:45:59

there is. It is just the same as now

except it will be a debt when you

2:45:592:46:05

sell off home. There are other

things, you might get family or

2:46:052:46:08

friends to help, but that could be

more expensive. All of those things

2:46:082:46:13

are possible, but they should simply

find the form and get -- sign the

2:46:132:46:18

form and get this loan, and it could

save their home. And I guess it is

2:46:182:46:23

so often with your messages, Paul,

that it is the worst thing to ignore

2:46:232:46:30

it.

It is unusual for benefit

changes, but with this one, you have

2:46:302:46:34

got to try and agree to, otherwise

it will be much worse, and that is

2:46:342:46:39

what is different about this, and

that is probably the reason why only

2:46:392:46:45

one in ten have completed the

action. We will be speaking to the

2:46:452:46:48

minister later on money box, and

asking him what he plans to do about

2:46:482:46:54

this. It is a problem and they will

not want to see many people on

2:46:542:46:59

benefit finding their work home at

risk. It will cost them a lot more.

2:46:592:47:05

Thank you so much. Money box, and BC

Radio 4 at midday.

2:47:052:47:12

With the impact of TV

programmes like Blue Planet -

2:47:122:47:14

we are more aware of the need

to recycle than ever before.

2:47:142:47:17

But when it comes to what can

and can't be recycled,

2:47:172:47:19

there is a lot of confusion.

2:47:192:47:21

That lack of clarity can result

in entire bags of recycling

2:47:212:47:24

being rejected and sent to landfill,

according to research carried out

2:47:242:47:26

by the British Science Association.

2:47:262:47:28

Simon Ellin is the Head of the UK

Recycling Association

2:47:282:47:31

and joins us now.

2:47:312:47:39

That situation we outlined before

about if you don't do it correctly,

2:47:412:47:45

and it is contaminated, it will go

to landfill. That is the worst of

2:47:452:47:49

all the outcome, isn't it? It is.

And it is such a... It should be

2:47:492:47:56

such an easy concept, but we just

don't seem to get it quite right,

2:47:562:48:00

and it is something in the region of

20% of material that goes into our

2:48:002:48:06

recycling bins, at home, is

contamination. And not only does

2:48:062:48:11

that mean that that material is not

sackable, a taxi contaminates the

2:48:112:48:16

other materials that are in there.

Would you like to explain the

2:48:162:48:20

contamination in this context Kayes

let me give you an example. If you

2:48:202:48:24

put in a tomato sauce bottle that is

still full of tomato sauce, that

2:48:242:48:29

then leaks out and it can go all of

your cardboard, paper, and it can

2:48:292:48:34

contaminate that. It renders it an

recyclable. So, -- an recyclable.

2:48:342:48:45

Paper napkin that you have thrown

away, a bit of something on that.

2:48:452:48:50

Absolutely.

How do you find out.

More of us are recycling. The bins

2:48:502:48:57

are getting bigger and bigger. How

is that details of the doubt?

That

2:48:572:49:02

is the difficulty that we have, and

it is about education, and it is

2:49:022:49:07

about getting the supply chain

right. It should be very, very

2:49:072:49:10

simple. The people that are

designing and selling the

2:49:102:49:16

manufacturers, do retailers and the

supermarkets, if they design it for

2:49:162:49:20

recyclability, it is labelled

properly and then we have a proper

2:49:202:49:23

system at the household to recycle,

and almost unbelievably we have

2:49:232:49:28

almost 350 different recycling

system in the UK, so it gets very

2:49:282:49:32

confused. It should be very simple.

It should be a recyclable product

2:49:322:49:35

that is labelling and you have a

proper then. But we don't get it

2:49:352:49:40

right. There is far too many

systems. Far too many different

2:49:402:49:44

terminals.

As we say that... Sorry

for interest opting flashbacks or if

2:49:442:49:50

interrupting. Simple yes or no,

plastic bags, can you recycle them?

2:49:502:49:59

Generally, no. Some councils will,

some councils won't.

Isn't that

2:49:592:50:07

interesting, because you are the

expert and you have to qualify it.

2:50:072:50:11

It is. Even I can't say

categorically in every place it is

2:50:112:50:17

not workable.

Aerosols?

Yes,

definitely yes. Very, very easy to

2:50:172:50:25

recycle. Great product. It goes in

with your account and your metals.

2:50:252:50:34

It is mixed, with everything else.

Envelopes with Windows. These are

2:50:342:50:40

the ones you get from councils. Yes,

or no?

Rip out the window and

2:50:402:50:47

absolutely yes.

C can't recycle the

window?

No. But, the envelope itself

2:50:472:50:54

is recyclable.

Here is the last one

for you, kitchen roll. What do you

2:50:542:51:01

do with it?

An recyclable. The

firebug quality isn't very good. We

2:51:012:51:08

don't get any yield out of it. Wave

nature it is used to mop up food and

2:51:082:51:14

other things, and we don't want that

in the recycling. Again, cross

2:51:142:51:18

contamination.

What noise should be

give our guest for his performance

2:51:182:51:24

on the programme? I thought we had

control over the noises, I was going

2:51:242:51:29

to give you a take, but we can't do

it, apparently. We don't have that

2:51:292:51:34

ability. That is a step too far,

this morning. Simon, thank you so

2:51:342:51:39

much. I am not sure that anybody is

going to give Helen a big take for

2:51:392:51:44

what she is about to deliver this

morning, but I am sure you will

2:51:442:51:48

deliver bad news well.

2:51:482:51:55

morning, but I am sure you will

deliver bad news well.

2:51:552:51:58

It is quite serious weather at the

moment. Even ahead of that, we are

2:51:582:52:02

seeing from snow and ice issues, for

example, behind me, this picture has

2:52:022:52:07

been sent

2:52:072:52:07

example, behind me, this picture has

been sent in this morning for North

2:52:072:52:09

Yorkshire. Quite a covering of snow,

I think you will agree, here. The

2:52:092:52:14

reason for the switch in our weather

is because we have the Atlantique

2:52:142:52:22

wins through the week. The high

pressure has slipped into

2:52:222:52:26

Scandinavia, and strong and gusty

wind is pushing in. The showers are

2:52:262:52:33

pushing farther westward, and we

have got the remnants of the weather

2:52:332:52:38

front. It is turning to snow. Not a

great deal of snow, but certainly

2:52:382:52:42

enough to give us some issues, and

the showers packing in behind and

2:52:422:52:46

they are of more concern because

they are heavier, as they are coming

2:52:462:52:49

into the same area. It will not be

warm. Only is freezing on these

2:52:492:52:56

coast. It will be a shock to the

system as you might have heard me

2:52:562:53:00

say, this morning. Let's have take a

look at the amber warning areas.

2:53:002:53:05

Where we think we will see the most

snowfall. Not ruling out other areas

2:53:052:53:09

seeing some snow, but this is where

it could pile up very significant

2:53:092:53:13

coverings. Then a possibility that

overnight will see a larger area of

2:53:132:53:20

snow moving in across the southern

part of the UK, and that is where...

2:53:202:53:28

Let me fill you in on the detail. As

you can see the charts, here.

2:53:282:53:36

Possibly starting to form into a

longer spell of snow. Several

2:53:362:53:41

centimetres in many areas, not just

the hit and miss a showers, and

2:53:412:53:45

still around tomorrow morning, and

settling. The air is so-called,

2:53:452:53:49

temperatures will be below freezing.

Sunday dawns on a grey note for most

2:53:492:53:57

of us, and possibly a winter

wonderland across southern and

2:53:572:54:00

western areas. That snow will be

blowing around. In those near gale

2:54:002:54:07

force winds. Just a bit of rain

offshore, but another really cold

2:54:072:54:14

day for this time of year.

Temperatures well below average, and

2:54:142:54:18

even more so, those on the Mac

three, on the thermometer, this is

2:54:182:54:22

how it will feel if you are -- those

on the

2:54:222:54:31

on the Mercury, this is how it will

feel. That doesn't mean we don't

2:54:312:54:35

still have a risk of eyes, because

what has fallen will continue to

2:54:352:54:39

freeze, and if it melt in the March

sunshine by day, it will freeze

2:54:392:54:44

again. Very cold air across us this

weekend. Bitterly cold, amber

2:54:442:54:49

warnings in force, but before that,

we have got some snow and some ice

2:54:492:54:53

issues, so please stay tuned for the

forecast.

2:54:532:54:56

issues, so please stay tuned for the

forecast. Thank you very much. We

2:54:562:55:00

will chat to you. With its being

so-called, you what's been warned to

2:55:002:55:05

leave, wouldn't you fish chips? Fish

supper? To BT? Is that what you call

2:55:052:55:13

it? I did call it that, but

apparently some people say that.

2:55:132:55:15

Curry sauce or mushy peas? Probably,

if it was a fish and chip shop, salt

2:55:152:55:22

and vinegar would be the thing. No

vinegar from me, always mushy peas.

2:55:222:55:28

Most of us choose cod or haddock.

2:55:282:55:34

But the latest 'Good Fish Guide'

says we should be eating "dab

2:55:342:55:37

and chips" or other sustainable

British fish.

2:55:372:55:39

But what are the chances of us

cooking unusual varieties?

2:55:392:55:41

Bernadette Clarke is from

the Marine Conservation Society,

2:55:412:55:43

and Simon Wood is a former winner

of MasterChef and restaurant owner:

2:55:432:55:50

Start as off with, a lot of people

have got the message by now about

2:55:502:55:54

cod. People have possibly thought

about other things. We are moving on

2:55:542:55:58

a bit more, now.

We would recommend

that people move on from the top

2:55:582:56:06

five. Cod, haddock, tuna, salmon. In

terms of more sustainable choices.

2:56:062:56:16

Which one should we have now?

In our

latest ratings update. This is our

2:56:162:56:21

good fish died. We have a list of

around 40 choices, and we have

2:56:212:56:28

cherry picked a list of ten best

choices which include local and

2:56:282:56:33

sustainable...

Give us the top

three?

2:56:332:56:41

three? Dab megrum sole.

We tend to

use macro which is sustainable.

2:56:442:56:59

Halibut. We have got other things in

there. It depends what is fresh and

2:56:592:57:05

achievable to pick up.

How opened

you think customers are two new

2:57:052:57:09

fish? There are still in a lot of

people who are quite funny about

2:57:092:57:12

this. They like and almost planar

tasting fish, not as adventurous.

I

2:57:122:57:18

think they do. Our kind of

customers, our menu is blind, so we

2:57:182:57:23

can serve whatever is good at the

time. People will try new things if

2:57:232:57:27

it is put in front of them. Maybe

they are a bit intimidated about how

2:57:272:57:33

to cook them.

What we have got in

front of us is a macro. What else

2:57:332:57:39

have we got, some crab meat, in

there, and some haddock. Michael is

2:57:392:57:46

one of the one that we should be

using more.

Yes, macro is very

2:57:462:57:52

sustainable, but we export a lot of

it to the continent, where we could

2:57:522:57:56

be eating more in the UK.

Give us a

cute to -- a clue here. If you go to

2:57:562:58:05

the supermarket, and you ask for

some of the products, you might not

2:58:052:58:10

find them, and price-wise, they

going to be relatively expensive.

2:58:102:58:16

Because that absolutely have an

impact on whether people in practice

2:58:162:58:20

and on an everyday sense will eat

and buy those sorts of this.

2:58:202:58:26

Certainly, taste, familiarity and

price are some of the main drivers

2:58:262:58:29

of the fish that we buy.

Supermarkets, that is where we buy

2:58:292:58:34

90% of our fish, so supermarket in

some respects govern what we eat.

2:58:342:58:43

They do supply the top five, but

that is not to say that there is any

2:58:432:58:46

less than the underutilised species.

The top five are those that you are

2:58:462:58:54

recommending.

No, the Salmon, the

cod...

That is part of the problem.

2:58:542:59:00

I am already forgetting some of the

names that you are mentioning. If

2:59:002:59:03

you are looking for one of those,

are you going to find them?

You will

2:59:032:59:07

certainly find

2:59:072:59:13

certainly find macro, dab, Kohli,

...

2:59:162:59:26

...

Pick one, reasonably priced.

I

would go simply with macro. It is

2:59:262:59:31

the most readily available, the most

familiar for people, I think. A

2:59:312:59:34

little bit of oil in the pan, skin

side down. To most of the cooking on

2:59:342:59:42

the skin side. Little bit of butter,

squeeze of lemon. That is as simple

2:59:422:59:47

as it gets. Unfussy, clean cooking.

Do you want to just finished a break

2:59:472:59:52

for us.

It goes anywhere with its

dues, beetroot, Orange. It is a

2:59:522:59:57

really good dish. That is something

that you can do quite easily, at

2:59:573:00:00

home.

Thank you so much. Stay with

us, headlines are coming up.

3:00:003:00:11

Hello this is Breakfast, with

Naga Munchetty and Charlie Stayt.

3:00:583:01:01

Moscow hits back over

the Russian spy row -

3:01:013:01:03

23 British diplomats are to be

expelled within a week.

3:01:033:01:11

The UK ambassador was summoned to

the Foreign Ministry just over an

3:01:123:01:17

hour ago following the poisoning of

a former Russian double agent in

3:01:173:01:20

Salisbury. The attack on the UK is

blamed on the Kremlin.

3:01:203:01:29

Good morning, it's Saturday

the 17th of March.

3:01:343:01:36

Also this morning:

3:01:363:01:38

Police launch a murder investigation

after two women are shot dead

3:01:383:01:40

at a house in East Sussex.

3:01:403:01:43

100 flights are cancelled

and drivers are told to expect

3:01:433:01:46

disruption as the "mini beast

from the east" sweeps in.

3:01:463:01:54

Good morning, it will be a shock to

the system for many of us today, as

3:01:543:01:59

the Siberian error is returning,

bringing issues with ice and snow.

3:01:593:02:03

There are numerous warnings out,

including amber warnings from the

3:02:033:02:06

Met office, and I will tell you more

about those in about 15 minutes.

3:02:063:02:14

Snow is falling at Twickenham. The

final round of matches on the six

3:02:143:02:19

Nations championship. Ireland could

win the Grand Slam here, if they

3:02:193:02:23

beat England.

Psyche. -- thank you.

3:02:233:02:28

Within the last 30 minutes,

the Kremlin has ordered

3:02:283:02:30

23 British diplomats

to leave Moscow,

3:02:303:02:31

in retaliation to the Prime

Minister's expulsion of the same

3:02:313:02:34

number of Russian diplomats

from the UK earlier this week.

3:02:343:02:36

It comes almost a fortnight

after the nerve agent attack

3:02:363:02:39

on former Russian spy Sergei Skripal

and his daugher.

3:02:393:02:41

We can speak now to Richard Gaplin

who is in Moscow.

3:02:413:02:49

Richard, events are moving fast in

the last hour. Take through the

3:02:513:02:54

sequence of events.

Yes, absolutely. The British

3:02:543:02:58

ambassador was called to the Russian

Foreign Ministry here in Moscow a

3:02:583:03:02

couple of hours ago. He had that

meeting, obviously, with very senior

3:03:023:03:07

Foreign Office ministry officials.

We now know that Russia has decided

3:03:073:03:12

to expel 23 British diplomats from

the embassy here in Moscow. That is

3:03:123:03:17

an absolute tit-for-tat for what

Britain has done. They have also

3:03:173:03:21

announced several other measures.

The British Council activities in

3:03:213:03:26

this country will cease, and also

that they are ending the agreement

3:03:263:03:30

for a consulate in the key city of

St Petersburg to be opened to

3:03:303:03:35

operate. Effectively stopping the

operation of the British Consulate

3:03:353:03:39

in St Petersburg. Now, after the

meeting, the British ambassador to

3:03:393:03:45

Moscow came out of the Foreign

Ministry here in Moscow and made

3:03:453:03:51

some comments, and in particular he

said that Britain had had to act

3:03:513:03:55

after the poisoning of the family.

We always do what is necessary to

3:03:553:04:02

defend ourselves, our allies and

values against an attack of this

3:04:023:04:07

sort, which is an attack not only on

the United Kingdom but upon the

3:04:073:04:11

international system which all

countries, including Russia, depend

3:04:113:04:14

for their safety and security.

Now,

what Russia has also said, which is

3:04:143:04:22

really important, is that if Britain

now takes further measures against

3:04:223:04:27

Russia, Moscow will also take

further measures. It is the

3:04:273:04:31

potential for this tit-for-tat to

really ratchet up. Back to you.

3:04:313:04:35

Richard, thank you very much.

We can talk to our political

3:04:353:04:45

correspondent, he was then a London

newsroom now. Nikki, good to speak

3:04:453:04:48

to you. -- who is in London

newsroom. What more can you tell is

3:04:483:04:54

about what has been happening in

terms of reaction from the UK?

3:04:543:04:56

I think when the Prime Minister

announced the measures that she died

3:04:563:05:00

on Wednesday, there were some people

who thought she could have gone

3:05:003:05:03

further. One of the questions that

might be asked now is whether she

3:05:033:05:09

will do that, particularly on the

issue of Russian money in London and

3:05:093:05:13

the UK in general. We have had a

couple of senior politicians saying

3:05:133:05:16

already this morning that they think

that more action should be taken

3:05:163:05:20

against that cash on British orders.

Damon Margaret Hodge, who is a

3:05:203:05:27

Labour MP, says that more and more,

what she calls, dirty Russian money

3:05:273:05:31

is coming into the country. -- on

British shores. That is a way to

3:05:313:05:36

"Hit Russia where it hurts. The Gers

of Foreign Affairs Select Committee

3:05:363:05:41

also says that as an area where do

UK right now look to further actions

3:05:413:05:45

after what happened in Moscow this

morning.

3:05:453:05:49

Nick, thank you very much for

talking to us. As the story

3:05:493:05:54

develops, we will keep you

up-to-date.

3:05:543:05:57

The time now is it of IBM.

Police have launched a murder

3:06:053:06:06

Officers were called to an address

in St Leonards on Sea last night.

3:06:063:06:09

A man has been arrested.

3:06:093:06:12

The victims were known to be

suspect. Police say they are not

3:06:123:06:17

looking for anybody else in

connection with the shooting.

At least eight people have been

injured after a faulty ski lift

3:06:413:06:44

threw people from their seats

at a mountain resort in Georgia.

3:06:443:06:47

As the lift malfunctioned,

people using it were forced to jump

3:06:473:06:49

out of their seats to

safety in the snow below

3:06:493:06:52

and those standing nearby

were forced to dive out of the way

3:06:523:06:55

as the lift raced towards them.

given for the fault.

Telford's MP Lucy Allan says she's

been inundated with emails

3:07:513:07:53

from people saying they've been

victims of child grooming.

3:07:533:07:55

It comes after a report

in the Sunday Mirror claimed that up

3:07:553:07:58

to one thousand girls in the town

could have been victims of child

3:07:583:08:01

sexual exploitation since the 1980s.

3:08:013:08:02

That number has been disputed

by West Mercia Police.

3:08:023:08:05

Here's some of what Lucy Allan

had to say earlier today.

3:08:053:08:13

-- yesterday.

I think it is

absolutely essential that we have an

3:08:163:08:20

independent inquiry, wholly

independent of the Council, and that

3:08:203:08:24

is focused on Telford. I am

delighted, of course, that all

3:08:243:08:28

parties now agree that that is the

best way forward. The reason for

3:08:283:08:32

that is because of this silence

around this crime. I think that the

3:08:323:08:37

institutions, the establishment,

people are not talking about this.

3:08:373:08:44

We can talk to former Detective

Inspector Maggie Oliver who worked

3:08:443:08:47

on the Rochdale case and later

resigned from her job claiming that

3:08:473:08:52

the force had failed victims of the

scandal. Thank you very much for

3:08:523:08:55

speaking to us today. These figures,

the police are saying that they are

3:08:553:09:00

not acknowledging these figures,

saying they are investigating 46 at

3:09:003:09:04

the moment. What you make these

figures?

I have been saying since I

3:09:043:09:10

started to speak out publicly in

2011, and I went to the Home Office

3:09:103:09:13

to say that the figures that were

being reported were... Not correct.

3:09:133:09:19

They were being underreported, on

recorded. The Home Office select

3:09:193:09:24

committee accepted that. -- under

recorded. These figures are not

3:09:243:09:30

fabricated, in my experience.

Whichever city in the country you go

3:09:303:09:36

to, you will see the same

statistics.

When we know the extent

3:09:363:09:43

of this scandal, and how horrific

this scandal is, why do you think

3:09:433:09:48

now it is still being underreported

and under recorded, the two words

3:09:483:09:52

you used? At the time, OK, we accept

that was happening and a big

3:09:523:09:57

mistake, but for it now to still be

being ignored?

All I can say is that

3:09:573:10:03

for me this feels a little bit like,

I don't know, the boy who cried

3:10:033:10:07

wolf. The authorities are very

powerful. If the situation had not

3:10:073:10:14

kept being repeated in Rochdale, in

Rotherham, in Newcastle, in Telford,

3:10:143:10:19

you know, they can say that ones.

But the public now that these

3:10:193:10:27

figures are true. The MP for

Telford, she is in a position I was

3:10:273:10:33

in five years ago. She is hearing it

for the first time for Telford. I

3:10:333:10:37

know from Rochdale that what was

being... Nine men were prosecuted in

3:10:373:10:43

Rochdale. From my experience, girl

that I spoke to were naming dozens

3:10:433:10:47

of men that had abused them and they

were never prosecuted.

So, Maggie, I

3:10:473:10:52

am trying to get a sense. Are you

suggesting that the same mistakes

3:10:523:10:56

are being made again by the

authorities, who are at best

3:10:563:11:02

treating some of the claims with

caution, and, in this case, actually

3:11:023:11:07

saying they don't exist? Are you

saying that mistakes are just being

3:11:073:11:10

repeated over and over again by the

reaction of the authorities? How

3:11:103:11:15

could they react more

constructively?

Keep on hearing the

3:11:153:11:21

same platitudes trotted out every

time a case like this breaks. Even

3:11:213:11:23

this week, these kids are

consenting, they are child

3:11:233:11:31

prostitutes, it is easier to blame

the victims than to prosecute the

3:11:313:11:36

offenders. To prosecute them is very

time-consuming. It takes a lot of

3:11:363:11:41

resources. There is no

accountability but we keep hearing

3:11:413:11:43

the same failures. I would ask these

people in senior positions in the

3:11:433:11:50

police, Chief Constable that

politicians, if your child of 1312

3:11:503:11:53

was being groomed, abused and passed

around gangs of paedophiles, would

3:11:533:11:59

they think that was acceptable?

Would they say that a 13-year-old

3:11:593:12:03

can consent? Would they not record

an official crime report for every

3:12:033:12:09

rape or every man that reach the

child? It is as though there is a

3:12:093:12:13

disconnect between what they are

saying about his victims. -- that

3:12:133:12:19

reaped their child. They are rating

of these children because they do

3:12:193:12:21

not have a voice. We keep seeing the

same pattern repeating.

3:12:213:12:27

What would you say to somebody who

is watching now, who understands,

3:12:273:12:31

I've knows somebody who has been a

victim, either as a victim, in terms

3:12:313:12:36

of... What people will hear is that

this is not going to be taken

3:12:363:12:39

seriously if they are victim, or

that it is easy to be locked in a

3:12:393:12:45

group that perhaps can be ignored,

because there is not the proper

3:12:453:12:48

process of recording this. Is that

impression true?

And individual

3:12:483:12:52

victim does not really have a voice.

I think as a society, we need to

3:12:523:12:58

tackle this. As a society, as a

country, where our priorities? The

3:12:583:13:04

responsibility for dealing with

these lies with politicians, the

3:13:043:13:07

Home Secretary, Chief Constable.

Quote bold statement to say an

3:13:073:13:12

individual who has a victim does not

have a voice.

That is what I have

3:13:123:13:16

witnessed. You speak to the girls on

Telford this week and see whether

3:13:163:13:20

they have been listened to. When the

authorities say that lessons have

3:13:203:13:24

been learned, words are very easy

but we keep on hearing of the

3:13:243:13:27

country the repetition of the same

failures. I have known about this, I

3:13:273:13:30

have worked on jobs since 2003. I

keep hearing exactly the same set of

3:13:303:13:36

circumstances. When I started to

speak out, I did not know it was a

3:13:363:13:42

national problem. I thought it was

just Rochdale. I wish I had never

3:13:423:13:46

travelled the journey that I have

travelled, because it has destroyed

3:13:463:13:48

my life in many ways. I gave up my

career, I lost my home, I had no

3:13:483:13:54

income. What I saw was a failure to

protect vulnerable children. Now, 15

3:13:543:13:59

years later, I am still hearing the

same platitudes from people in

3:13:593:14:05

positions of authority. They should

be protecting these kids. If this

3:14:053:14:09

was my daughter, they would listen

to me because I would fight tooth

3:14:093:14:15

and nail, as would you, but some of

these children do not have anybody

3:14:153:14:18

fighting a corner. That is where

Chief Constables and politicians

3:14:183:14:21

should step up to the mark and

prosecuted these paedophiles. They

3:14:213:14:27

know full well what they are doing,

they are getting away with it. As a

3:14:273:14:32

country, we need to take action.

Another inquiry. In my experience,

3:14:323:14:39

again, all of these inquiries are

not really worth the paper that they

3:14:393:14:42

are written on because action does

not follow.

Maggie, we appreciate

3:14:423:14:46

your time. Thank you for speaking to

us.

Thank you very much.

3:14:463:14:51

Here's Helen with a look

at this morning's weather.

3:14:513:14:54

Here's Helen with a look

at this morning's weather.

3:14:543:14:55

The mini beast from the east, we

understand, is making its way

3:14:553:14:59

towards us.

It is your weapons, actually! It is

3:14:593:15:02

snowing steadily here in London, and

across many southern and eastern

3:15:023:15:06

areas at the moment. Met Office

amber warnings in force until the

3:15:063:15:12

afternoon, but even -- from the

afternoon, but even heard of that, a

3:15:123:15:16

wintry mix this morning. This is how

it looks in Suffolk. A wintry

3:15:163:15:20

picture already, with snow lying. We

have got some snow lying in Essex, I

3:15:203:15:25

showed due north Yorkshire as well.

There is snow and it is starting to

3:15:253:15:30

settle, particularly on the gardens

and sides of the roads at moment. It

3:15:303:15:32

is because, as you mentioned, we

have got this cold easterly beast.

3:15:323:15:37

They say that if a bit of weather a

law. When from the east is no good

3:15:373:15:42

to man or beast. It is so bitterly

cold. This is the snow picture, the

3:15:423:15:46

snow radar picture. Slightly

overdone but we are going to

3:15:463:15:52

continue to see them packing in the

North Sea. This is the remnants of a

3:15:523:15:56

weather front in the south that

starts to turn, overnight at least,

3:15:563:15:59

into some more persistent snow. A

very cold day for all of us. Even

3:15:593:16:04

when you do not have the snow.

Purely because of the strength of

3:16:043:16:06

that went. The air is very cold as

well. That is how it will be only

3:16:063:16:11

for a moment. 10 degrees down on

yesterday for some of us. -- on the

3:16:113:16:16

thermometer. Very gusty wind across

the western side of the UK. A real

3:16:163:16:22

buffeting from that wind here. Let's

take a closer look at where we think

3:16:223:16:25

the most significant snowfall will

be. We are not willing to Telstra,

3:16:253:16:29

as we are seeing, but we could have

several centimetres building up

3:16:293:16:32

through the day and overnight across

parts of Lincolnshire, and also

3:16:323:16:40

across south eastern area. Then

there is this big? Still over the

3:16:403:16:43

next time period, when it looks more

organised. -- a more organised area

3:16:433:16:49

of snow and rain will form. That is

across the Southern half of England

3:16:493:16:52

and South Wales. For the day, when

the weather system starts to his

3:16:523:16:56

from the south, showers concern us.

But a bit of snow forecast coming

3:16:563:17:00

across the southern half of the

country. That is to donate ten and

3:17:003:17:05

into tomorrow morning. Another

bitterly cold night because of the

3:17:053:17:09

wind, a penetrating frost, and that

is now settling because air is so

3:17:093:17:12

cold on the ground will follow

through the course of the day. A

3:17:123:17:15

winter wonderland as we wake up

tomorrow across southern and western

3:17:153:17:19

areas. Uncertainty as to how far

north that will effect, as well as

3:17:193:17:23

how far east, but another day were

it is quite grey and, without too

3:17:233:17:28

much sunshine, which really does

help at this time of year, it will

3:17:283:17:30

go even colder I think. Not colder

than today, but just as cold.

3:17:303:17:35

Temperatures may be marginally

higher, but very little in it. That

3:17:353:17:38

strong winds starting to ease a

little across Scotland and later in

3:17:383:17:43

Northern Ireland. Not with us for

long. Enough to cause some issues,

3:17:433:17:46

this cold spell, particularly if

you're heading out and about. We got

3:17:463:17:49

off the easterly wind into Monday.

We started to pick up a northerly

3:17:493:17:53

wind. Not a particularly warm

direction, but it will not be as

3:17:533:17:57

cold. We still have the problem with

ice.

3:17:573:18:01

Travellers are facing disruption

this morning as the "mini beast

3:18:013:18:03

from the east" brings fresh snow

and ice warnings to the UK.

3:18:033:18:06

Around 100 flights have been

cancelled so far

3:18:063:18:08

and drivers have been told

to expect disruption.

3:18:083:18:10

Let's speak to travel

expert Simon Calder.

3:18:103:18:12

Good morning, Simon, what is going

on there?

If you are around, about

3:18:123:18:17

15,000 people, you will have been

sold already that your flight to and

3:18:173:18:21

from Heathrow has been cancelled.

British Airways alone has cancelled

3:18:213:18:25

over 80 departures. Most of them

short haul flights, but also a round

3:18:253:18:30

trip to, one each, to New York and

Chicago. On top of that, Air France,

3:18:303:18:35

KLM, Lufthansa, Portugal, as with

and there are lenders have also

3:18:353:18:41

cancelled flights. Gatwick Airport

says they are already at the moment

3:18:413:18:47

but do check with your airline later

because they're expecting problems,

3:18:473:18:52

and London City, all the problems

seem to in London. If you're one of

3:18:523:18:57

the other airports, if there is a

problem it is only because you're

3:18:573:18:59

trying to get to London. The flight

just due in from Edinburgh to London

3:18:593:19:03

city is actually know inside send,

which will be a surprise to the

3:19:033:19:09

passengers, I dare say. The pilot as

well. Wherever you travelling, you

3:19:093:19:13

should check in advance. I am seeing

delays building. Just half an hour

3:19:133:19:18

or so at the moment, mostly to do

with problems getting ice of the

3:19:183:19:23

aircraft, but as those build-up

during the day, we could see more

3:19:233:19:26

cancellations and I would say the

chances are there will be yet more

3:19:263:19:31

cancellations put in after Helen's

weather forecast just now for

3:19:313:19:34

tomorrow. The length will probably

start letting people know that after

3:19:343:19:37

an early evening, if your flight is

affected.

3:19:373:19:44

You say there are lens will let you

know, but you never quite trust you

3:19:443:19:47

will be told. What should be be

doing if we are travelling? -- say

3:19:473:19:54

they are lens.

Check online with the

airport to see that your flight is

3:19:543:19:58

operating as you expected to be and

be proactive cancellations, which is

3:19:583:20:01

what we have seen at Heathrow, most

of the cancellations so far we knew

3:20:013:20:06

about last night. They are simply

doing that to reduce the demands on

3:20:063:20:10

those two precious runways and all

of the de-icing equipment.

3:20:103:20:16

This morning, we have been talking a

lot about Russia and diplomatic

3:20:163:20:20

relations. We have just been told in

the last hour 23 diplomats will be

3:20:203:20:24

expelled from Moscow in retaliation

to what has happened in the UK.

3:20:243:20:29

There are lots of people who are

concerned about travel Russia ahead

3:20:293:20:33

of the World Cup. We also heard that

the England captain will be talking

3:20:333:20:38

and addressing some concerns that

his team members might be having.

3:20:383:20:44

What are you looking at in terms of

travel awareness?

The Foreign Office

3:20:443:20:47

this week announced that British

people could face harassment in

3:20:473:20:51

Russia. There is clearly building

tension at it is possible that if

3:20:513:20:55

you are going out there in the next

few weeks that... I do not think,

3:20:553:21:00

from of many visits to Russia, that

you will encounter any hostility

3:21:003:21:04

from the Russian people who I have

always found very welcoming and

3:21:043:21:07

hospitable. You might find, for

example, when you're going through

3:21:073:21:11

passport control but officials will

be tougher than normal. Guards are

3:21:113:21:16

not recruited for their charm and a

sense of humour, I find, in Russia.

3:21:163:21:21

Beyond that, Dan Walker was

expressing concerns about 40 minutes

3:21:213:21:26

ago about safety. I would not have

particular concerns about personal

3:21:263:21:29

safety. I think it is a moral

question, whether by going very few

3:21:293:21:35

are somehow lending support to a

propaganda exercise. Having said all

3:21:353:21:39

that, I cannot wait to go. I have

already got my IDE! That is going to

3:21:393:21:43

entitle me to get into Russia

without a visa, and there are still

3:21:433:21:49

tickets available for the first two

England games. Personally, I am all

3:21:493:21:52

in favour of it. I think it will

help to build bridges with the

3:21:523:21:56

Russian people, rather than being

actually counter-productive. But

3:21:563:21:59

everybody has to make their own

decision.

3:21:593:22:02

You have made your view very clear!

Simon, thank you very much.

3:22:023:22:08

You're watching Breakfast. Temporary

look at the newspapers.

3:22:083:22:19

Events move fast, don't say. Between

the time we last saw you, we now

3:22:193:22:24

know about the expulsions, the

diplomats, the British diplomats in

3:22:243:22:28

Moscow, will be expelled within a

week. 23 exactly. You are taking us

3:22:283:22:33

back in your first story to some of

the issues around this?

Well, you

3:22:333:22:39

talk about events moving fast, but

apparently until now, things did not

3:22:393:22:42

generally move fast in his would-be

cathedral city of Salisbury. The FT,

3:22:423:22:48

Salisbury turns into ground zero of

UK- Russia trail. It was Boris

3:22:483:22:52

Johnson yesterday saying that this

was the first chemical weapons

3:22:523:22:56

attack on European soil since the

Second World War. A very unlikely

3:22:563:23:00

setting. Some rather touching

anecdotal interviews from people in

3:23:003:23:06

Salisbury. One shop manager of a

shop called Crystal's knows

3:23:063:23:13

everything there is to know now

about Novichok, whether you can

3:23:133:23:16

dissolve it in water, its expulsion

characteristics. This has shocked

3:23:163:23:20

the citizens of an unassuming pretty

English city, and, interestingly,

3:23:203:23:25

one that we associate with Thomas

Hardy novel and John Constable

3:23:253:23:28

paintings. I found this quite

amusing, one visitor, because it is

3:23:283:23:33

swamped with International

journalists at the moment, as one

3:23:333:23:36

local said you are not too bored,

are you? Just checking there was

3:23:363:23:40

enough for them to do. There was

enough for them to do. Very unlikely

3:23:403:23:44

scenes, with its looking like the

service of planet Mars with tents

3:23:443:23:47

popping up. Also caught my eye. We

referred earlier to Boris Johnson

3:23:473:23:52

and him overstepping the line,

directly implicating Vladimir Putin,

3:23:523:23:55

which had not been done by Number

Ten. Also noting that Jeremy Corbyn,

3:23:553:24:01

in the soup potentially this week.

There may be resignations from the

3:24:013:24:05

Shadow Cabinet. A lot of them, three

at least, significant players, I

3:24:053:24:11

Smith for instance, are very unhappy

with the way in which there has been

3:24:113:24:16

constructive ambiguity from the

Labour leadership indirectly

3:24:163:24:20

accusing Russia. Constructive

ambiguity, up until now, seems to

3:24:203:24:25

have worked very much in his favour

with Brexit, but we are crying out,

3:24:253:24:29

are we not, for some proper

leadership from the opposition.

3:24:293:24:33

Constructive ambiguity grins the

Kremlin? I am unsure. If we could

3:24:333:24:38

now stick with the terrorist theme,

briefly. I am going to take you to

3:24:383:24:44

the Daily Mail, who I feel that

slightly... The double page spread

3:24:443:24:50

in the Mail. Refugee who hated

Britain.

3:24:503:24:53

This is actually the version of the

story from the Express as well.

You

3:24:533:24:59

can see the Mail is very aggrieved,

understandably so, that this

3:24:593:25:03

teenager got so much from the

British system and yet, you know,

3:25:033:25:06

repeat them with murderous intent.

But I feel the real journalistic

3:25:063:25:11

story here is how did a boy, a lot,

we are talking a teenager, who was

3:25:113:25:16

in touch with charities, emigration,

was on this anti-radicalisation

3:25:163:25:21

programme, in a skill, not just

monitored that awarded for his

3:25:213:25:24

academic achievements, slipped

through the net and concoct a bomb

3:25:243:25:28

and detonated in broad daylight? It

does not bored too well for handling

3:25:283:25:33

of the Kremlin. That is the question

that needs to be asked by a proper

3:25:333:25:38

journalists.

Page of the newspaper is this

3:25:383:25:48

101-year-old woman who has come out

of seclusion to sue over a

3:25:483:25:52

docudrama.

I have spent the past two

years with six women over 100 for a

3:25:523:25:57

bit and I know that the body

weathers but the eagle must resist

3:25:573:26:01

what is the point? Although they are

to have a land -- she is really

3:26:013:26:07

putting her point across at the age

of 101. The depiction of her in a

3:26:073:26:13

docudrama, Viewed, which features

Betty Davis and her sister she

3:26:133:26:23

doesn't the misappropriation of what

happened. She is incidentally played

3:26:233:26:26

by Catherine Zeta Jones. They refer

to recalling her sister the word we

3:26:263:26:31

would use for a female dog. It has

not gone down well, and the court

3:26:313:26:35

hearing starts in Los Angeles in

Monday. The reason this is

3:26:353:26:38

significant beyond a demonstration

of them available in extreme old age

3:26:383:26:43

is that it could have extreme

implications for the way in which we

3:26:433:26:46

depict real people in a fictional

drama. The Krona is a big example,

3:26:463:26:52

for instance. Actually, does this

mean in future they have always got

3:26:523:26:54

to be authorised by the people in

those films? Unless they are dead.

I

3:26:543:27:02

am intrigued as to what you have

learned from hanging out with, is at

3:27:023:27:07

six women over 100 years old?

I have

learned that it is not just about

3:27:073:27:13

living, it is about living well. You

need genetic luck, good genes, but

3:27:133:27:19

all of these women, there is no one

bullet. Some have great families,

3:27:193:27:23

great Church, some have great

professional interest, but it is

3:27:233:27:26

about remaining relevant. Not being

too judgmental, keeping up with

3:27:263:27:31

contemporary events and staying

engaged with your community. You

3:27:313:27:33

will be rewarded antics -- in

extreme old age if you stay engaged

3:27:333:27:40

with your community. Once your 100,

that is a community 50 years younger

3:27:403:27:44

than you. I have learned a huge

amount. Also not to look at what you

3:27:443:27:47

do not have but to be grateful for

what you have. As you get older,

3:27:473:27:52

there is lost, so you have to hold

onto what you have.

3:27:523:27:55

On that philosophical thought, I

think we are done!

I was going to go

3:27:553:28:00

to another oldie, but no time!

We are going to talk to Matt, he was

3:28:003:28:04

taking

3:28:043:28:09

taking over BBC One with Saturday

Kitchen. We have been talking about

3:28:093:28:12

fish.

Have you?

Yes, we have been

asked to look at mackerel and dab.

3:28:123:28:19

Sustainability.

Do you want this big

discussion now?

Why not? No, you

3:28:193:28:26

just tell us what is going on.

Can I

just say hello to test? She wrote a

3:28:263:28:31

lovely article on me recently, so

thank you very much.

Hold on a

3:28:313:28:36

minute, she wants to say something.

He is in this magazine looking

3:28:363:28:40

resplendent in Chef's whites. I want

to know what colour he is going to

3:28:403:28:46

kick in in future.

Not white! Very

unforgiving. Enough of my dress

3:28:463:28:50

code. A lot about St Patrick's Day

today, obviously, and our special

3:28:503:28:55

guest is the fantastic Amanda

Redmond.

Lovely to be sure.

What is

3:28:553:29:03

your idea of food heaven?

Curry. I

love curries, love them.

And what

3:29:033:29:11

about hell?

I do not like couscous.

Look at that face!

And I do not like

3:29:113:29:20

fatty meat.

OK, good, good. We have

also got two more at...

I really do

3:29:203:29:26

not like fatty meat.

I get it!

Helping us celebrate St Patrick's

3:29:263:29:33

Day, what will you cook?

Some

beautiful lamb, with some potato,

3:29:333:29:39

whiskey and toasted oatmeal. No fat

on the LAN!

He has treated a lot.

3:29:393:29:48

What is on the menu, how is it?

Rainbow trout with chorizo, muscles

3:29:483:29:55

and tomato salsa.

That is one of

your favourites.

A bit of Spanish

3:29:553:29:59

sulphur for this lovely weather.

And

we have also got drinks. You guys at

3:29:593:30:04

home are in charge of Amanda's food

heaven or hell at the end of the

3:30:043:30:09

show. See you at 10am.

Thank you very much. The headlines

3:30:093:30:15

coming up in just a moment.

3:30:153:30:16

Hello, this is Breakfast with

Naga Munchetty and Charlie Stayt.

3:30:463:30:51

Coming up before 10.00am.

3:30:513:30:59

John will have all the latest in the

sport and Helen will have the

3:30:593:31:02

weather.

3:31:023:31:04

First a summary of this

morning's main news.

3:31:043:31:07

Within the last few hours,

Russia has ordered twenty-three

3:31:073:31:09

British diplomats to leave

the country in retaliation

3:31:093:31:11

for the expulsion of the same number

of Russians from the UK earlier this

3:31:113:31:15

week.

3:31:153:31:16

It comes almost a fortnight

after the nerve agent attack

3:31:163:31:18

on former Russian spy Sergei Skripal

and his daugher.

3:31:183:31:26

We can speak now to Richard

Galpin who is in Moscow.

3:31:273:31:32

There has been a series of events.

It began with the UK ambassador to

3:31:323:31:38

Russia being summoned?

Yes, that is

right. The ambassador was summoned

3:31:383:31:46

to the ministry here in Moscow. We

now know that that meeting was

3:31:463:31:51

inside the building was very short.

He was therefore little more than

3:31:513:31:54

ten minutes. He was handed the list

of measures that Russia was going to

3:31:543:31:59

implement in retaliation to what

Britain has done, and as you say,

3:31:593:32:03

that list includes 23 British

diplomats being expelled from this

3:32:033:32:07

country, expelled from the embassy,

and that will take place, or has to

3:32:073:32:12

take place within a week. They have

gone further. They are also saying

3:32:123:32:21

that the British Consulate in St

Petersburg affectively will have two

3:32:213:32:25

C is operating. It is quite a big

operation. St Petersburg is Russia's

3:32:253:32:33

the second biggest city. That

affects people getting visas to come

3:32:333:32:37

to Britain. They are also stopping

the operation of the British Council

3:32:373:32:41

in this country. That provides a lot

of cultural activities, language

3:32:413:32:49

learning for Russians, again. This

is similar to what faded after the

3:32:493:32:56

tit-for-tat following the murder of

Alexander lit the new anchor in

3:32:563:33:00

2006.

3:33:003:33:10

-- Litvinienko. He said that Britain

had to act after the poisoning in

3:33:133:33:18

Salisbury two weeks ago.

We need to

defend our allies and our values

3:33:183:33:25

against an attack of this sort,

which is a threat not only on the

3:33:253:33:30

United Kingdom, but the system on

which all countries, including

3:33:303:33:34

Russia depend for their safety and

security.

What has also been said by

3:33:343:33:41

Russia is that if now Britain does

impose further measures on Russia,

3:33:413:33:49

Russia will reciprocate once again.

So, there is a possibility of this

3:33:493:33:54

escalating, but obviously, we have

got to wait and see how both sides

3:33:543:33:58

play this out, now.

OK, so there

will be a close focus

3:33:583:34:08

will be a close focus on the

responses and how measured they are.

3:34:083:34:11

There was also the stopping of the

opening incident Petersburg as well.

3:34:113:34:15

The Consulate general.

Yes, that's

right. It exists already. It is

3:34:153:34:20

important. It is in St Petersburg

which is a really key city. The

3:34:203:34:27

country's second city. It obviously

affects Russians who want to get

3:34:273:34:31

visas to come to Britain. From now

on, they would have to come to

3:34:313:34:40

Moscow for example, to sort out

visas. It does make it more

3:34:403:34:44

difficult for Russians, and of

course, we have got to wait and see

3:34:443:34:48

what is going to happen. Is this

tit-for-tat exchange now going to be

3:34:483:34:53

a calming down, or will there be

further measures, or not. The other

3:34:533:34:57

factor that we have got to take into

account is of course the murder

3:34:573:35:01

investigation into Nikolai Glushov.

They are investigating it as a

3:35:013:35:09

murder. He was another Russian

dissident. Somebody who had gained

3:35:093:35:16

asylum in this country.

3:35:163:35:24

asylum in this country.

They have

said that at this stage there is no

3:35:243:35:27

link between those two incidents.

The one between...

3:35:273:35:39

Police have launched a murder

investigation after two women

3:35:393:35:41

were shot and killed at a house

in East Sussex.

3:35:413:35:43

Officers were called to an address

in St Leonards-on-Sea last night.

3:35:433:35:46

A man has been arrested.

3:35:463:35:47

A man has been arrested.

3:35:473:35:51

Police say they are not looking for

anybody else in connection with the

3:35:513:35:55

shooting.

3:35:553:35:57

The Met Office is issuing an amber

warning for snow and ice in much

3:35:573:36:00

of England and parts of Scotland,

ahead of another cold snap.

3:36:003:36:03

More than 100 flights

to and from Heathrow have been

3:36:033:36:05

cancelled ahead of predicted bad

weather dubbed the Mini

3:36:053:36:07

beast from the east.

3:36:073:36:08

Highways England is advising

motorists to avoid

3:36:083:36:10

trans-Pennine roads.

3:36:103:36:11

It might have been panned by some

critics, but Hugh Jackman's movie

3:36:113:36:14

musical 'The Greatest Showman'

continues to dominate

3:36:143:36:16

the cinema and music charts -

sitting at the top of the UK album

3:36:163:36:19

chart for 10 weeks.

3:36:193:36:25

# So tell me where do

you want to go...

3:36:253:36:32

# So tell me where do

you want to go...#

3:36:323:36:36

The film is loosely

3:36:363:36:37

based on the life of

circus impresario PT

3:36:373:36:39

Barnum, AKA the greatest showman.

3:36:393:36:40

The only other album that's managed

to spend longer at the top spot

3:36:403:36:43

in the UK in the last 30 years

is Adele's 21, which managed

3:36:433:36:46

11 weeks at the top.

3:36:463:36:48

Those are the main

stories this morning.

3:36:483:36:49

They are. Hold. We have been hearing

that it is really, really cold.

3:36:493:36:53

Morning, John. A bit of snow at

Twickenham. I think I can see it is

3:36:533:37:00

still quite drizzly, there, as well.

Yes, it doesn't look great,

3:37:003:37:05

actually.

3:37:053:37:07

So, can Ireland complete

the Grand Slam today?

3:37:073:37:09

They'll have to do it at Twickenham,

where England haven't lost

3:37:093:37:12

a match under Eddie Jones -

our Sports Correspondent Olly

3:37:123:37:14

Foster is there for us -

tough one to call this Olly?

3:37:143:37:22

It is absolutely freezing. The

ground staff, bless them. It is

3:37:303:37:37

always busy. But, look at this. Blue

line at Twickenham, just in case,

3:37:373:37:45

the snow just settles. So, blue

lines. That is what they are busy

3:37:453:37:51

doing now. So that we can see

whether those tries are scored or

3:37:513:37:56

not if eager out of touch. Ireland

are going for the grand slam. They

3:37:563:38:01

beat Scotland in Dublin last

weekend. That was what was to suck

3:38:013:38:05

the save, that round four of

matches. They are unbeaten. They

3:38:053:38:11

just slipped past France. They beat

Italy, and the Scots. That put the

3:38:113:38:16

pressure on Eddie Jones' England.

England had lost to Scotland

3:38:163:38:20

earlier. Then they went to Paris and

they lost. That handed the

3:38:203:38:26

championship to Ireland with a game

to spend. Muted celebrations in

3:38:263:38:30

Dublin, because they were having

their eyes on the Grand Slam. It is

3:38:303:38:35

all about this match. Can Ireland

complete the clean sweep? Certainly

3:38:353:38:40

Eddie Jones' team has gone

backwards, were they lose three in a

3:38:403:38:46

row? If they do, then Ireland will

secure only their third grand slam.

3:38:463:38:52

Last time they did it was in 2009.

All of the pressure is on these

3:38:523:38:58

teams. That hear from both camps.

Everybody is aware of the

3:38:583:39:02

significance that it has for Irish

rugby and this group of players, but

3:39:023:39:07

it is also very, very exciting. You

want to put yourself against the

3:39:073:39:13

best teams.

Nothing is perfect in

the world. Rugby is an imperfect

3:39:133:39:20

game. Every team has a certain area

of weaknesses, and we will be good

3:39:203:39:27

enough to exploit those areas and

weaknesses.

Well, Eddie Jones has

3:39:273:39:33

made so many changes to his England

team. Just the one island change. We

3:39:333:39:39

will get started in Rome, this

afternoon. That is where Scotland's

3:39:393:39:44

art against Italy. Italy have

already won the wooden spoon. And

3:39:443:39:49

then at five o'clock in Cardiff.

That will be the match to decide who

3:39:493:39:54

finishes second. We have got a

triple bill, but sandwiched in the

3:39:543:39:59

middle is this grand slam decider.

Can Ireland do this? It is Charlie

3:39:593:40:06

in the studio. They say that there

is no such thing as bad where the --

3:40:063:40:13

weather, it is just the wrong

clothing.

Yes, Mike toes are -- my

3:40:133:40:21

toes are cold. I am going on

holiday, and hopefully it won't be

3:40:213:40:27

snowing there.

You know what they

say, there is nothing worse than a

3:40:273:40:33

snug, warm presenter in a studio

talking to a presenter doing the

3:40:333:40:36

hard graft on the pitch.

Yes, you

do. I was just going to say that.

He

3:40:363:40:45

need a sheepskin.

3:40:453:40:48

England's women ended their Six

Nations with victory over Ireland -

3:40:483:40:51

but they finished runners

up to France.

3:40:513:40:53

England won by 33 points

to 11 at the Ricoh Arena -

3:40:533:40:55

Danielle Waterman becoming

the nation's leading try-scorer

3:40:553:40:59

with 47 now to her name.

3:40:593:41:02

France took the title -

and the Grand Slam -

3:41:023:41:05

with victory over Wales.

3:41:053:41:07

ParalympicsGB are still short

of their medal target of seven,

3:41:073:41:09

after the penultimate day

of the Winter Games in Pyeongchang.

3:41:093:41:12

Scott Meenagh finished 14th

in the cross country event

3:41:123:41:15

and James Whitley was 10th

in the slalom.

3:41:153:41:19

Britain have won five medals so far,

all in the visually impaired alpine

3:41:193:41:24

skiing, and the three British pairs

will race again tomorrow.

3:41:243:41:32

It was a frustrating evening for

Hibernian. Hibs went ahead in the

3:41:373:41:42

second minute. Had there keeper held

out to the final few moments when

3:41:423:41:49

Chris Kane equalised Fulston

Johnstone.

3:41:493:41:58

And it seems that Kevin Pietersen

might have finally hung up his bat.

3:41:583:42:01

He tweeted "Boots Up.

3:42:013:42:02

Thank you" after playing

for Quetta Gladiators

3:42:023:42:04

in the Pakistan Super League.

3:42:043:42:05

The former England captain had

indicated the tournament

3:42:053:42:07

would be his last.

3:42:073:42:15

That is all your sportsmen are. Did

you happen to catch out of the

3:42:173:42:22

corner of your eye, because I think

that Helen was doing a sort of

3:42:223:42:26

skiing action, you were, won't you?

I was. I was just saying,

3:42:263:42:31

absolutely.

3:42:313:42:35

Enough snow to be able to ski, or

not at all.

And the sun was shining.

3:42:353:42:42

It is just bleak. I think that

Charlie is having a funny three

3:42:423:42:47

minutes. He has been meaning to Lee

after him dressing incorrectly, he

3:42:473:42:52

was revealing that you are doing

since gaining motion when we were

3:42:523:42:55

off-camera. I think it is nice. It

is nice to get involved. She is

3:42:553:43:01

getting involved, enacting what is

going on. Yes, I am a little bit

3:43:013:43:05

worried that Ollie has not been

listening to the forecast, actually.

3:43:053:43:09

I have definitely got my path that

jacket. It is bitter, it is really

3:43:093:43:18

cold. Well, we need to listen to

what you have to say, because it is

3:43:183:43:23

changing all the time. And there are

destructions to travel.

3:43:233:43:26

We are seeing snow here in London,

and is not settling on the roads,

3:43:323:43:37

but as you can see, a dusting behind

me in Cambridge. A dusting in part

3:43:373:43:42

of supper, and parts of ethics. I

apologise that I have not been able

3:43:423:43:47

to get more weather watchers on this

afternoon. So much whether going on.

3:43:473:43:51

Let's have a look at why this is

changing. These Atlantic mild winds,

3:43:513:43:58

and this high-pressure thinking that

has allowed the Siberian winds back

3:43:583:44:01

across the country, and they are

really busting in the snow showers.

3:44:013:44:05

Most of the showers are now falling

as snow, and what we have in the

3:44:053:44:09

south is now turning to sleet and

snow, as well. It will settle, it is

3:44:093:44:14

settling in the gardens come on the

pavements, and it will turn quite

3:44:143:44:18

icy, and it will be a bitterly cold

afternoon. The winds are really

3:44:183:44:23

buffeting across the western side.

It will feel even colder, than those

3:44:233:44:28

temperatures on the them on to

suggest. Even those are some 10

3:44:283:44:34

degrees down compared with

yesterday, can but it will feel

3:44:343:44:39

colder. It has been miles this week.

Please take note. Let's take a

3:44:393:44:45

closer look at where we are

expecting some of the most

3:44:453:44:50

destructive snowfall. Midlands into

Lincolnshire, and across southern

3:44:503:44:57

and eastern parts of England. The

showers will keep coming quick and

3:44:573:45:02

fast as the day goes on. Potential

to see some thing more widespread to

3:45:023:45:07

come, rather than the showers, which

will come one after the other, but

3:45:073:45:13

others will escape. For the south,

big area of snow comes in, so it

3:45:133:45:17

will affect a more wide spread area.

We are talking seven centimetres,

3:45:173:45:22

and that strong wind will blow the

snow around, so blizzards and poor

3:45:223:45:28

visibility will add to the snow

settling out the eyes, because it is

3:45:283:45:31

really cold, are the -- overnight.

It could be that we wake up to a

3:45:313:45:41

winter wonderland, Torah. There is

still uncertainty as to how far

3:45:413:45:45

north and east it is going to

affect, but it will take much of the

3:45:453:45:51

warning to be drought. That is

obviously going to cause significant

3:45:513:45:55

problems, as well as more showers

backing in. It is already going to

3:45:553:46:02

-- started to deteriorate because

North Yorkshire. We have still got

3:46:023:46:06

that biting easterly wind. We will

see more snow to night, tonight

3:46:063:46:09

actually across the central lowlands

of Scotland. That easterly wind will

3:46:093:46:15

get cut off as we go into Monday. We

will get more of a northerly wind.

3:46:153:46:19

We can argue that that is not a...

Slightly warmer, but we will have

3:46:193:46:26

that problem at night that things

will 's freeze. We will have wintry

3:46:263:46:33

problems were another two or three

days, actually. OK, Helen. You make

3:46:333:46:39

sure that you are that up warm as I

will too. Enjoy it, thanks. Hot

3:46:393:46:45

water bottle. Yes, exactly.

3:46:453:46:50

Britain's department stores

used to be the height

3:46:513:46:53

of luxury and service.

3:46:533:46:54

If you needed anything from clothing

to electricals or food,

3:46:543:46:56

they were the place to go.

3:46:563:46:58

But today they face fierce

competition in all categories,

3:46:583:47:00

as online retailers offer everything

a customer wants at

3:47:003:47:02

the click of a button.

3:47:023:47:03

Radio 4's Consumer reporter

Samantha Fenwick has been finding

3:47:033:47:05

out how department stores are trying

to fighting back.

3:47:053:47:10

George Davies has been called

a serial brand creator,

3:47:103:47:14

a fashion visionary,

the king of the high street.

3:47:143:47:16

They are very Abba,

these, aren't they?

3:47:163:47:18

Yes, very Abba.

3:47:183:47:20

I was too young to remember Abba.

3:47:203:47:22

He was the man behind Next and M&S.

3:47:223:47:30

When we started,

there were 400 spots.

3:47:443:47:46

By the time ago to the 1990s,

when I starting George and ASDA,

3:47:463:47:49

I already knew parking

was a real problem.

3:47:493:47:51

So you could see that there was,

at that point, decline

3:47:513:47:54

in the high street.

3:47:543:47:55

Yes, sure.

3:47:553:47:56

It was obvious.

3:47:563:47:57

George left M&S in 2008,

vowing never to return

3:47:573:47:59

to the high street.

3:47:593:48:00

He said it was no longer

a place to make money.

3:48:003:48:03

Ten years on, and he

has changed his mind.

3:48:033:48:06

His new line of women's

and children's clothing will be

3:48:063:48:09

in the shops next week.

3:48:093:48:12

So why the change of heart?

3:48:123:48:14

Rents are high, business rates

are high, but dealers own a lot

3:48:143:48:17

of their properties.

3:48:173:48:20

Probably 70%, they own it,

so that takes quite a high risk

3:48:203:48:22

out of it.

3:48:223:48:24

But not all department

stores are that lucky.

3:48:243:48:25

This is London's Oxford Street.

3:48:253:48:28

It is where all the big names

have their flagship stores.

3:48:283:48:32

But the buildings are big,

with too much unprofitable space.

3:48:323:48:35

House of Fraser have

asked their landlords

3:48:353:48:36

to reduce their rent,

and the likes of Debenhams and Marks

3:48:363:48:39

& Spencer's are closing

stores completely.

3:48:393:48:40

Costs are going up for retailers,

and shoppers want to go online

3:48:403:48:46

because it offers convenience.

3:48:463:48:47

They can get the lowest prices,

and they get the lowest prices

3:48:473:48:50

because those operators don't

have the same kind of costs

3:48:503:48:53

as a physical store.

3:48:533:48:56

The Government is concerned about

the state of the UK's high street.

3:48:563:48:59

It has just set up a special panel

to investigate how best to adapt

3:48:593:49:02

to the changes in the way we shop.

3:49:023:49:07

It is being led by Richard

Pennycook, the chairman

3:49:073:49:10

of department store Fenwick.

3:49:103:49:17

Department stores are about theatre

and service, and those are things

3:49:173:49:20

that can't be replicated online.

3:49:203:49:21

So I think there's a really good

future for department stores,

3:49:213:49:24

but it's all about making sure that

we're providing something different,

3:49:243:49:27

which makes the visit worthwhile.

3:49:273:49:29

It will have to be something very

different to get us off the internet

3:49:293:49:33

and into the high street.

3:49:333:49:41

Beer, green hats, shamrocks

and celebratory shenanigans...

3:49:543:49:56

It can only mean one thing -

St Patricks day!

3:49:563:49:58

And it's not just the Irish

commemorating the Patron of Ireland,

3:49:583:50:01

it's thought to be the most

celebrated festival in the world.

3:50:013:50:05

Let's have a look at what we can

expect.

The biggest St Patrick's day parade

will be taking place in New York

3:50:533:51:00

and is expected to attract around

200 million spectators.

3:51:003:51:02

Joining us from New York is event

organiser Nial Gibbons,

3:51:023:51:04

Chief Executive of Tourism Ireland

and on the sofa is Derek Ryan,

3:51:043:51:08

Irish Country music singer.

3:51:083:51:14

How are you. Happy St Patrick's Day.

But will you be doing today.

I am

3:51:143:51:21

going to be in London, tonight. We

are bringing Irish country music to

3:51:213:51:26

the capital. We look for two that.

We look forward to some music at the

3:51:263:51:31

end of the programme, as well. Being

marked across the world, why do

3:51:313:51:34

think it is so popular? Sow well,

good morning. And a happy Saint

3:51:343:51:39

Patrick's Day from an early start

here in New York City. I think it is

3:51:393:51:42

very popular because there are

millions of people around the world

3:51:423:51:49

that claim Irish ancestry. It is

personified here in New York City

3:51:493:51:53

with the biggest St Patrick's Day of

the lot. There will be 2 million on

3:51:533:51:56

the streets. Even the lights on the

street are painted green for the

3:51:563:52:02

occasion. Is that true, 2 million

people? That is extremely!

Yes. The

3:52:023:52:09

parade will start. It is the biggest

elevation of Irish is around the

3:52:093:52:17

globe. No better place to have it,

although you could say that it is

3:52:173:52:21

the second best place in the world

to be, the best place in the world

3:52:213:52:24

to be sticking to what is Ireland's

win the grand slam.

Very good point.

3:52:243:52:29

Is it true that lots of New Yorkers

claim I was ancestry. A lot of

3:52:293:52:35

people claim it, is it a badge of

honour?

It really is. The official

3:52:353:52:41

figures are 34 million people at the

300 million in the United States

3:52:413:52:45

take an Irish pots and pans of their

ancestry. It is the biggest ethnic

3:52:453:52:50

group in the United States. It is a

day that everybody wants to

3:52:503:52:55

celebrate. They are renowned for

having a good party, but this is a

3:52:553:52:58

day for everybody, and it is not

just for the Irish. 2 million people

3:52:583:53:01

will be on the streets of the

Avenue, and no matter what day of

3:53:013:53:05

the week, it shows the powerful

influence of the Irish. It is a

3:53:053:53:13

great celebration. Look at what

other countries are doing over the

3:53:133:53:17

world. Lighting up global icons. It

really affects on the work that

3:53:173:53:21

Irish missionaries for example have

done. It really is a great tribute

3:53:213:53:26

to our patron saint that we can sell

rate in this way.

Derek, what

3:53:263:53:30

doesn't that they mean to you. We

know what side he is supporting the

3:53:303:53:37

rugby, but what does it mean to you?

It is a family day, really. Music is

3:53:373:53:43

a big part of it as well. I was the

Leeds Triangle player when I was

3:53:433:53:49

young. It was an important job at

the time. We went to all sorts of

3:53:493:53:54

parades, the colour and the

festivities. It is a day to spend

3:53:543:53:58

with family and fellow Brit anything

Irish.

I always thought that if you

3:53:583:54:03

had no musical gift whatsoever, you

are given the triangle.

Probably,

3:54:033:54:07

yes.

Percussion is a very important

part. I am not disputing that.

3:54:073:54:16

Keeping everybody in time, though.

Music is very important. It goes

3:54:163:54:21

hand-in-hand with the celebrations,

why is that?

It is a big part of our

3:54:213:54:26

country. -- culture. Country was it

for me, is really enjoying a boost

3:54:263:54:31

in popularity at the moment, with so

many young country singers coming

3:54:313:54:35

out. There is not a dance hall at

home, in Ireland and not a whole and

3:54:353:54:41

in town or village that doesn't have

dance lessons or Irish dance

3:54:413:54:45

lessons, so, it is a big part of our

country, -- culture, and everyone

3:54:453:54:50

will hear a lot of Irish visit this

weekend.

And you know all about

3:54:503:54:55

these beds of Irish culture around

the world. Often this will be most

3:54:553:55:01

visible in Irish pubs. They are

everywhere?

Note written about it.

3:55:013:55:05

Is it everywhere around the globe.

Even China, pubs with great names.

3:55:053:55:16

It is a great base for Irish people,

but it is a great stage, today,

3:55:163:55:22

particularly when everybody can be

Irish in some and the Irish music

3:55:223:55:26

scene. From the last couple of

years, there is a country connection

3:55:263:55:31

with Ireland. There is a nice

addition there.

We are going to give

3:55:313:55:37

you a little quiz. Quite unfairly.

What was the original column is

3:55:373:55:42

associated with Saint Patrick was

mac Green was considered unlucky.

3:55:423:55:47

Erm...

Blue. Did you know that? I

didn't actually been.

3:55:473:55:59

It is. And in Chicago, they go so

far as to die the river Kelly in

3:56:053:56:10

Chicago green. It is amazing the

extent to which we will will go to

3:56:103:56:17

celebrate.

That is the Chicago

plumbers union. They have got a

3:56:173:56:21

secret formula. It is done every

year. It is a spectacular thing. It

3:56:213:56:26

is an amazing thing to see. Maybe we

should die the Thames green.

Oh, no.

3:56:263:56:32

Thank you so much. Good luck with

your gift tonight, Derek. We have

3:56:323:56:38

been asking you to let us know how

you have been enjoying your St

3:56:383:56:42

Patrick's Day.

3:56:423:56:45

From dogs in hats to cake baking,

here are some of your pictures.

3:56:453:56:53

IRISH MUSIC PLAYS

3:56:563:57:04

A lot of dogs and hats. What else do

you do but put a hat in its? Why

3:57:383:57:43

not? Exactly. Just keep celebrating.

Do enjoy your St Patrick's Day if

3:57:433:57:47

you are celebrating.

3:57:473:57:49

That's all from us today,

I'll be back with Christian

3:57:493:57:55

tomorrow from 6.00am.

3:57:553:58:03

Now to play us out...
