Hello, this is Breakfast,

with Naga Munchetty and Christian

0:00:050:00:08

Fraser.

0:00:080:00:11

Temperatures plunge

as low as -6 overnight,

0:00:110:00:14

as the "mini beast

from the east" bites.

0:00:140:00:17

Icy conditions are causing

problems for drivers -

0:00:170:00:19

and there are weather warnings

in place across the breadth

0:00:190:00:22

of the UK.

0:00:220:00:30

Amber warnings are still in place

across England and Wales. Some have

0:00:320:00:35

already seen it 5-7 centimetres and

more is due. Join me in 15 minutes

0:00:350:00:42

for your full forecast.

0:00:420:00:48

Good morning, it's Sunday

the 18th of March.

0:00:520:00:54

Also this morning -

0:00:540:00:56

A top Russian diplomat insists

Russia had "nothing to do"

0:00:560:00:59

with the poisoning of

a former spy in Salisbury -

0:00:590:01:02

and suggests Britain

could have been responsible.

0:01:020:01:07

Beautiful buildings

and mega-fast broadband -

0:01:070:01:08

we'll find out why York has been

named as the best place

0:01:080:01:12

to live in Britain.

0:01:120:01:14

In sport, Ireland celebrate

St Patrick's Day in style.

0:01:140:01:16

As victory over England

at Twickenham gives them the Grand

0:01:160:01:19

Slam.

0:01:190:01:27

Nearly night and bred wild one

bronze as slalom champions.

0:01:270:01:31

Good morning.

0:01:310:01:32

First, our main story.

0:01:320:01:33

Snow and ice has gripped much

of the UK, as a cold snap dubbed

0:01:330:01:37

the "mini beast from the east"

sweeps in from Siberia.

0:01:370:01:40

The Met Office has put

amber warnings in place,

0:01:400:01:42

and they are expected to last

all day today in south-west England

0:01:420:01:45

and South Wales.

0:01:450:01:46

Sarah Ransome is in Devon for us.

0:01:460:01:54

We will be live in some of the worst

affected areas throughout the

0:01:580:02:02

programme.

0:02:020:02:03

People living in ten chalets

"perilously close" to the edge

0:02:030:02:06

of cliffs on the Norfolk coast have

been told to leave their homes

0:02:060:02:09

because of strong

winds and high waves.

0:02:090:02:11

Earlier, Norfolk Police said that

six of the properties

0:02:110:02:14

at Hemsby had a very good chance

of going into the sea.

0:02:140:02:17

In 2013, tidal storms saw three

homes in the village washed away.

0:02:170:02:23

Kent Police have arrested a man

on suspicion of attempted murder

0:02:230:02:26

after several people were injured

when a car was driven into a busy

0:02:260:02:30

nightclub in Gravesend.

0:02:300:02:31

Police say the incident at Blake's

nightclub is not been

0:02:310:02:33

being treated as terror-related.

0:02:330:02:34

Footage posted on social media

appears to show a car

0:02:340:02:37

inside a marquee at the nightclub,

as officers led people to safety.

0:02:370:02:43

The Russian Ambassador

to the EU, Vladimir Chizhov,

0:02:430:02:46

has suggested that the UK's

own research laboratory in Wiltshire

0:02:460:02:49

could be the source of the nerve

agent used in the poisoning

0:02:490:02:53

of a former Russian

spy in Salisbury.

0:02:530:02:55

The Foreign Office has

called the Russian

0:02:550:02:57

account absolute nonsense.

0:02:570:02:58

Here's our diplomatic

correspondent, James Robbins.

0:02:580:03:05

Two weeks at the chemical attack on

Sergei and Yulia Skripal, Ambassador

0:03:060:03:10

Vladimir Chizhov said there were no

stockpiles whatsoever of nerve

0:03:100:03:14

agents left in Russia but then in an

interview with Andrew Marr, he went

0:03:140:03:19

a bit further. Asked how the

chemical weapon came to be used in

0:03:190:03:24

Salisbury, Vladimir Chizhov

suggested Lipsett when you have

0:03:240:03:26

nerve agent, you check it against

certain samples that you retain in

0:03:260:03:31

your laboratories.

Putin now is the

largest military -- it is the

0:03:310:03:42

largest military facility in the UK

which has been dealing with chemical

0:03:420:03:45

weapons research. It is actually

only eight miles from Salisbury.

You

0:03:450:03:50

are not suggesting that we are is

responsible...

I don't know, I don't

0:03:500:03:56

know. I don't have any evidence.

As

Britain continues to investigate the

0:03:560:04:02

chemical attack, the Foreign Office

dismissed this latest Russian attack

0:04:020:04:05

is absolute nonsense with not an

ounce of truth in it. A spokesperson

0:04:050:04:10

said it's just another futile

attempt from the Russian state to

0:04:100:04:13

divert the story a way from the

fact, that Russia has acted in

0:04:130:04:18

flagrant breach of its international

obligations.

0:04:180:04:20

The Foreign Secretary has

described Russia's closure

0:04:200:04:22

of the British Counsel and Consulate

in St Petersburg as "futile".

0:04:220:04:25

Writing in the Sun on Sunday,

Boris Johnson says

0:04:250:04:28

the move will punish ordinary

Russians by depriving them

0:04:280:04:30

of opportunities to learn English.

0:04:300:04:32

The move was part of Russia's

response to sanctions

0:04:320:04:34

by the British Government,

in the wake of the poisoning in

0:04:340:04:37

Salisbury.

0:04:370:04:45

A group of MPs says

that the government should consider

0:04:520:04:55

the possibility of delaying

when we leave the EU,

0:04:550:04:57

if complex issues remain unresolved.

0:04:570:04:58

The Exiting the EU Committee

says more time should be

0:04:580:05:01

allowed if a detailed

and comprehensive agreement

0:05:010:05:03

on the future relationship

isn't settled by October.

0:05:030:05:05

The Brexit committee's view

isn't unanimous though -

0:05:050:05:07

a minority report by eight members

warns that a long transition

0:05:070:05:10

would be difficult.

0:05:100:05:11

would be difficult.

0:05:110:05:12

It might be freezing here -

but take a look at these incredible

0:05:120:05:16

pictures.

0:05:160:05:16

Spring has definitely sprung

in the southwest of China -

0:05:160:05:19

and has created this sea of flowers.

0:05:190:05:21

Visitors from across the country

have travelled to see these

0:05:210:05:23

extraordinary cherry blossoms.

0:05:230:05:31

The bugs are coming and going. It

will warm up later in the week. --

0:05:430:05:51

Let's take a look at

this morning's papers.

0:05:510:05:54

there was a big report saying 1000

goals had been groomed. The

0:05:540:06:01

assistant chief constable says that

there were measures put in place, of

0:06:010:06:09

course, disputed by some former

officers. Looking at the Mail on

0:06:090:06:13

Sunday. The Prime Minister's war on

Putin. What it is saying and it is

0:06:130:06:19

referring to the television series.

It is targeting dirty money as it

0:06:190:06:29

sees the Kremlin expelled 23 UK

diplomats and describes the first

0:06:290:06:41

escalation. A whistleblower has

revealed how the details of 50

0:06:410:06:53

million Facebook users were

harvested illegally. There was a

0:06:530:07:02

media campaign that was targeted and

it may have influenced the 2016

0:07:020:07:13

election in America. I watched the

rugby yesterday, congratulations to

0:07:130:07:17

Ireland. That is magnanimous because

Charlie was really keen... To be

0:07:170:07:23

honest, after about 15 minutes, I

thought the writing was on the wall.

0:07:230:07:27

Was there a ridiculous gap in the

first ten minutes in terms of

0:07:270:07:31

scoreline? Yeah, well, we were a

long way behind. That is what I

0:07:310:07:36

meant. I wasn't saying it in a very

nice way. Here is the Duchess of

0:07:360:07:41

Cambridge wearing green, splendid.

Witness Shamrock on as well. She is

0:07:410:07:46

enjoying the St Patrick's Day parade

in west London. -- with a first --

0:07:460:07:57

with a Shamrock. Blackout threat to

Britain as Putin hits back. The

0:07:570:08:04

bosses of Britain's key power

companies to boost their security.

0:08:040:08:09

Fears of a Russian cyber attack as

these escalation of words increases.

0:08:090:08:13

Similar front page and the

Telegraph. This is interesting. I'm

0:08:130:08:17

off to Brussels for the EU summit

and the whole talk next week will be

0:08:170:08:22

about the transition and whether it

will be open-ended. This is

0:08:220:08:29

interesting because they are saying

that the Gibraltar might not be

0:08:290:08:33

covered by the transitional. It

could be part of the round next

0:08:330:08:40

week. Debate here as well about how

long they should be extended. It is

0:08:400:08:46

eight minutes past six. Snow and ice

has gripped much of the UK. The cold

0:08:460:08:54

snap dubbed the mini beast from the

East has swept in from Siberia. The

0:08:540:08:58

Met Office has put amber warnings in

place and they are expected to last

0:08:580:09:03

all day today. In a moment we will

speak to Sarah Walton in Yorkshire

0:09:030:09:07

but first, let's go to Sarah who is

in Holden Hill in Devon.

0:09:070:09:16

And amber warning in place for much

of the day?

Yes and just when you

0:09:160:09:21

thought it was all over, think

again. A real case of that. I am on

0:09:210:09:27

Holden Hill. We are very close to

the arterial road into Devon. A few

0:09:270:09:36

weeks ago, a number of drivers, when

the snow came, found themselves

0:09:360:09:40

stranded on this hill. It has

happened in previous years and since

0:09:400:09:45

then, emergency plans have been put

into place and yesterday when the

0:09:450:09:49

amber zone warning came into force,

some of the tractor ploughs and some

0:09:490:09:54

of the kit behind me were positioned

up here on hold and held just in

0:09:540:09:58

case they were needed to try and

help in that situation. That is all

0:09:580:10:03

being controlled at the bottom of

the hill. Qayyara at the top, higher

0:10:030:10:06

up, so we have more snow. --

0:10:060:10:13

up, so we have more snow. -- we are

at the top. Parts of Somerset have

0:10:130:10:19

been worst affected. Very steep hill

has been closed in the last half an

0:10:190:10:26

hour or so this morning. The

greeters have been out repeatedly

0:10:260:10:33

overnight, and just before dawn,

they were out salting the road wet

0:10:330:10:36

tons of salt have an

0:10:360:10:43

tons of salt have an -- has been

trying to keep the roads safe. If

0:10:440:10:50

you don't have to travel in this

part of the world, please don't. The

0:10:500:10:54

amber warning will be active all

day. It is part of a three tier

0:10:540:10:59

system and it is the second warning

in the range of alert and they say,

0:10:590:11:03

please don't go out unless you have

absolutely got to. When you get to

0:11:030:11:09

Cornwall, the Fire service varies

saying please stay away from the

0:11:090:11:14

coastal areas because high winds and

the prospect of more snow, about 25

0:11:140:11:19

centimetres, coming in later, could

be difficult.

Busy day for those

0:11:190:11:27

things behind you.

0:11:270:11:32

I can see behind you that the roads

gritted.

We have had eroded gritted

0:11:380:11:50

but this is on the edge of the road.

--

0:11:500:12:05

-- roads gritted. We have seen a

snow lying deep over high ground but

0:12:050:12:09

mostly on the low level, you have a

thin layer of snow which has now

0:12:090:12:13

frozen overnight. The Highways

Agency are warning people to take

0:12:130:12:19

care if you need to make the

journey. Lincolnshire police are

0:12:190:12:24

asking people to stay off the roads

unless absolutely necessary. They

0:12:240:12:29

have had incidents overnight. None

of the roads are cross Erbil unless

0:12:290:12:32

you have a 4-wheel drive. The roads

over high ground a particularly

0:12:320:12:37

dangerous.

0:12:370:12:46

dangerous. -- cross Erbil. Network

Rail say if you are hoping to travel

0:12:460:12:56

by train, check with the website. We

have more than 100 flights out of

0:12:560:13:02

Heathrow which have been cancelled

because the planes had to have ice

0:13:020:13:10

removed. If you are one of the

people having to leave the house

0:13:100:13:15

today, to take care.

As Sarah said,

check with the website ahead of

0:13:150:13:21

travelling by train because it is

not clear which services will or

0:13:210:13:25

will not be running. Lots of

destruction at Heathrow. --

0:13:250:13:29

disruption.

0:13:290:13:39

Do you like York? Well, I am not

saying no!

0:13:400:13:44

York has been named

the best place to live in Britain

0:13:440:13:47

by the Sunday

Times.

0:13:470:13:48

It's the first time the city

has topped the list,

0:13:480:13:51

which is published each year.

0:13:510:13:52

Let's have a look at some

of the reasons it did so well.

0:13:520:13:58

I think the place is more exciting

than the music.

Yes, I think that is

0:14:490:14:56

not the best groovy music.

I have

memories of partying there in my

0:14:560:15:04

university days. I did enjoy that

are very much. We would love to hear

0:15:040:15:08

about where you live, and whether it

should have made the list. You can

0:15:080:15:13

email us all posted on our Facebook

page.

I'm not sure I did my street

0:15:130:15:19

cred very much good.

If you are

using the phrase street cred,

0:15:190:15:25

certainly not. Let's find out about

this morning's weather. We would

0:15:250:15:28

never use the phrase street cred,

would we?

You have made me giggle,

0:15:280:15:36

Naga. Not much showing of the street

here, and on a much more serious

0:15:360:15:43

note, as beautiful as York is, we

have lots of snow issues across

0:15:430:15:46

Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. There

are still amber warnings in force

0:15:460:15:51

from the Met Office here and other

parts of

0:15:510:15:53

from the Met Office here and other

parts of England and Wales as well.

0:15:530:15:55

It really is treacherous. I drove to

work this morning and it is

0:15:550:15:59

treacherous.

0:15:590:15:59

work this morning and it is

treacherous. Many places across

0:15:590:16:02

Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire,

example, have seen 5- ten

0:16:020:16:04

centimetres of snow. You can see we

are getting the worst of the snow

0:16:040:16:10

clearing from eastern areas but it

is heading west, snowing heavily in

0:16:100:16:13

the likes of Dorset and Somerset.

This amber warning will the

0:16:130:16:17

ineffective well into this evening.

Hopefully for Yorkshire and parts of

0:16:170:16:22

the Midlands, the worst will be

easing as we go through this

0:16:220:16:25

morning. We still have that it wins.

As you saw on the rainfall chart, or

0:16:250:16:29

the snowfall chart in this case, it

is still bringing in those snow

0:16:290:16:33

showers. It looks as though it will

continue to be really nasty. Lots of

0:16:330:16:37

snow falling across Wales, Dorset,

Somerset. It is slow-moving but will

0:16:370:16:42

mount up quite quickly. It is

lolling around in that wind, and of

0:16:420:16:47

course, to enable the grit to work

you need traffic on top of it as

0:16:470:16:51

well, but it is not great out of

air. -- out there. The Central

0:16:510:16:58

Lowlands are still having some

showers. County Antrim and County

0:16:580:17:01

Down prone to snow showers. For

Scotland and Northern Ireland should

0:17:010:17:05

be an improving picture, not because

it will be getting warmer but

0:17:050:17:08

because we are cutting off that

easterly flow through the day. That

0:17:080:17:12

snow is very close to the south of

Northern Ireland. Further east, we

0:17:120:17:19

might see a little bit of brighter

weather materialising, but it is

0:17:190:17:23

still bitterly cold. Temperatures

obviously only 1- two Celsius but

0:17:230:17:28

feeling colder in the wind. This

evening and overnight, we will begin

0:17:280:17:32

to lose the threat of snow. Another

cold night, with hard and

0:17:320:17:38

penetrating frost. So it will ice

over. IS will be a big concern as we

0:17:380:17:43

go into tomorrow morning's

rush-hour. -- ice. And easterly flow

0:17:430:17:50

in southern areas, and one of two

when she flurries around. The big

0:17:500:17:54

story is that on Monday it will be

much drier and brighter, slightly

0:17:540:17:58

less cold, but icy, for the morning

rush, and again in the evening.

0:17:580:18:02

Temperatures more respectable but

still well below where they should

0:18:020:18:05

be for this time of year. A very

wintry picture at the moment but

0:18:050:18:10

temperatures are recovering as we go

towards the middle part of next

0:18:100:18:13

week, as you can see. Just a

reminder, we do have that amber

0:18:130:18:18

warning in force. It is absolutely

awful out and about Ulster -- out

0:18:180:18:24

and about.

0:18:240:18:29

And we will be back with a news

summery at 6:30 a.m.. Right now, it

0:18:290:18:33

is time for The Film Review.

0:18:330:18:39

Hello, and welcome to

The Film Review on BBC News.

0:18:440:18:46

To take us through this week's

cinema releases is Jason Solomons.

0:18:460:18:49

Good to see you, Jason.

0:18:490:18:51

What have you been watching?

0:18:510:18:56

This week, we'll go

to raiding and cliffhanging

0:18:560:18:57

with the new Lara Croft

in Tomb Raider.

0:18:570:19:00

-- tomb raiding.

0:19:000:19:03

Look at the meaning of art

and find our inner ape in Swedish

0:19:030:19:06

satire The Square.

0:19:060:19:10

And we dip into biblical times

for the real story of Mary Magdalen,

0:19:100:19:15

as played by Rooney Mara,

opposite Joaquin Phoenix as Jesus.

0:19:150:19:21

What a mixture!

0:19:210:19:22

Tomb Raider is back.

0:19:220:19:23

Did they need to remake this?

0:19:230:19:29

Well, it wasn't very

good the first time!

0:19:290:19:31

Often they do remakes of things that

are really good and you think,

0:19:310:19:36

'why have they ruined it'?

0:19:360:19:37

But they may be trying

to get this right,

0:19:370:19:40

because Angelina Jolie's Lara Croft

has dated terribly -

0:19:400:19:43

the effects are bad

and it was never quite right.

0:19:430:19:47

Tomb Raider was sort of a teenage

fever dream for many boys who used

0:19:470:19:52

to play that as a game

when it was early computer games,

0:19:520:19:55

and they've now changed the whole

figure of Lara Croft for this

0:19:550:19:59

new actress, who I happen

to think is fantastic.

0:19:590:20:01

She's beautiful, gorgeous,

and she has got this strength

0:20:010:20:05

to her and she's balletic,

which she needs, because she has

0:20:050:20:08

done a lot of running in this movie.

0:20:080:20:10

She is slumming it in Shoreditch

when we start this, but then we find

0:20:100:20:14

out she is the daughter

of a billionaire, who is played

0:20:140:20:17

in a flashback.

0:20:170:20:18

She has to go and sign

the papers which means

0:20:180:20:20

that she will inherit his fortune.

0:20:200:20:22

That was Dad's?

0:20:220:20:23

Yes, Miss Croft.

0:20:230:20:29

According to his will,

I was supposed to give it to you.

0:20:290:20:35

And, technically speaking,

you are meant to sign

0:20:350:20:39

the papers first.

0:20:390:20:41

I could never understand

your father's obsession

0:20:410:20:45

with those things.

0:20:450:20:52

I can't believe how many of those

were lying around the house.

0:20:520:20:55

There's got to be

some purpose to it.

0:20:550:20:57

The first letter from

my final destination.

0:20:570:21:05

"The first letter from my

final destination."

0:21:240:21:26

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!

0:21:340:21:40

They are only in it

for a bit, I have to say -

0:21:400:21:43

for the money, I think!

0:21:430:21:45

She goes off on her quest -

this is a quest movie.

0:21:450:21:48

She goes hunting with clues

that her father has left her.

0:21:480:21:51

These riddles, which you might start

off solving them yourself

0:21:510:21:54

in your head - but don't bother,

because they don't make

0:21:540:21:57

any sense, really!

0:21:570:21:58

It's just another level

of the game that she goes to.

0:21:580:22:01

She goes to Hong Kong,

and then she is pursued,

0:22:010:22:03

which is all very good,

then she has to go to a remote

0:22:030:22:07

Japanese island on a ship,

and survive a storm,

0:22:070:22:09

going down a waterfall

and solving another puzzle.

0:22:090:22:12

She does a lot of jumping and then

she does a lot of dangling.

0:22:120:22:15

LAUGHTER.

0:22:150:22:18

You know, it's a bit krypton factor!

0:22:180:22:22

Considering the indignities heaped

upon her and ridiculous scenarios

0:22:220:22:24

thrown at her, I was mesmerised

by how brilliant she is at this.

0:22:240:22:28

She brings a balletic

strength to it.

0:22:280:22:35

She's got great abs,

fantastic skills with a bow

0:22:360:22:38

and arrow, and she's far,

far better than the film she is in.

0:22:380:22:42

I wondered whether you

were getting to that.

0:22:420:22:44

She is great, but is it worth

seeing apart from her?

0:22:440:22:48

It's very kinetic, the best I can

say for it is it keeps hurling stuff

0:22:480:22:54

at poor Alicia Vikander.

0:22:540:22:56

But the climatic tomb raid

is almost laughable -

0:22:560:22:59

it looks like something that you get

on the back of the cereal packet!

0:22:590:23:02

It's like, is that what this

has all been about?!

0:23:020:23:05

Maybe there will be more

Tomb Raiders and maybe

0:23:050:23:08

they will get them better!

0:23:080:23:09

They will keep trying.

0:23:090:23:17

I'm loving the sound of the next

one, it sounds intriguing.

0:23:170:23:21

It won the Palm d'Or at Cannes,

and has taken a year to get here,

0:23:210:23:25

but it was nominated

as Best Foreign-Language Film

0:23:250:23:28

at the Baftas.

0:23:280:23:28

Much of it was not in Swedish.

0:23:280:23:30

Elisabeth Moss is in this.

0:23:300:23:33

It features one of the great

scenes of the year,

0:23:330:23:36

which we are seeing here.

0:23:360:23:43

An American actor

comes in as an artist.

0:23:430:23:46

It is an art world satire.

0:23:460:23:51

This is an art gallery

benefit dinner.

0:23:510:23:52

He comes in to do a performance

piece, but takes it far too far.

0:23:520:23:56

Here he is kind of

goading Dominic West.

0:23:560:24:02

It's about finding art in that era.

0:24:020:24:04

It's a satire on the art world.

0:24:040:24:06

Art that can be dated,

what's the point of art,

0:24:060:24:09

is it ridiculous?

0:24:090:24:16

This is about modern art.

0:24:160:24:18

It's about the curator of this

gallery that we're seeing here.

0:24:180:24:21

He loses his mobile phone,

and his life completely falls

0:24:210:24:23

apart and unravels.

0:24:230:24:24

It really is a sort of film

predicated on that.

0:24:240:24:27

Is that in the category

of 'first-world problems?'!

0:24:270:24:29

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,

0:24:490:24:51

perhaps a bit too thought-provoking,

like the monkey poking Dominic West

0:24:510:24:55

in the ear.

0:24:550:24:56

You have been to see

Mary Magdalen as well.

0:24:560:25:04

It's Easter coming up,

time for a Passion story.

0:25:060:25:09

This is reported to tell

for the first time the story

0:25:090:25:12

of Mary Magdalen, who has been cast

as a prostitute since Pope Gregory

0:25:120:25:15

in 591 declared that

she was a prostitute,

0:25:150:25:17

which is apparently

wrong - she wasn't.

0:25:170:25:19

This film aims to correct that

and show the Jesus story

0:25:190:25:22

through the eyes of the only female

disciple, Mary Magdalen,

0:25:220:25:25

played by Rooney Mara,

who leaves her fishing village

0:25:250:25:28

and follows the son of God.

0:25:280:25:31

Mary.

0:25:310:25:34

Mary.

0:25:460:25:53

Each of you stand at the threshold.

0:25:580:26:00

Do you fear that you will

never reach the kingdom?

0:26:000:26:03

Whose kingdom?

0:26:030:26:08

Herod's?

0:26:080:26:10

You know as well as I do,

there's only one true kingdom.

0:26:100:26:13

And that is God.

0:26:130:26:16

And God's kingdom has taken root.

0:26:160:26:19

So we must prepare.

0:26:190:26:21

We must wash away the stains

of your corruption.

0:26:210:26:27

And be born anew.

0:26:270:26:30

Like children.

0:26:300:26:34

I have been hidden for too long.

0:26:340:26:42

I'm not sure what to say about that!

0:26:420:26:44

You can see why her father would be

upset if she went to follow him,

0:26:440:26:48

this kind of hairy bloke

who's really boring!

0:26:480:26:50

Whatever you think about the Bible,

there's no denying it's got some

0:26:500:26:54

great lines in it.

0:26:540:26:59

Why this film hasn't got any

of them is a mystery to me.

0:26:590:27:03

It is extraordinarily dull.

0:27:030:27:05

Is it a long couple of hours?

0:27:050:27:08

Absolutely so dull you

would not believe it!

0:27:080:27:10

It even looks dull, it has got this

tablecloth fashion with the stones

0:27:100:27:14

everywhere in the desert.

0:27:140:27:15

At one stage it was the greatest

story ever told, when it was in

0:27:150:27:21

Hollywood, now it's just the most

boring story ever told.

0:27:210:27:24

It's extraordinary what it does,

trying to rectify it and make it

0:27:240:27:27

a story for a new age,

kind of a story for everyone -

0:27:270:27:31

it won't offend Catholics,

Christians, Jews, Muslims

0:27:310:27:33

or even atheists.

0:27:330:27:36

Is it trying to be too careful,

is that part of the problem?

0:27:360:27:40

It is trying to tiptoe

over any heresy.

0:27:400:27:42

People boycotted

Martin Scorcese's film.

0:27:420:27:43

Any film that makes you cry

for Mel Gibson has got it wrong!

0:27:430:27:47

It also makes you think

of Monty Python all the time!

0:27:470:27:51

There are scenes when people

are going, 'Messiah,

0:27:510:27:54

Messiah'!

0:27:540:27:57

You know what, he's not the Messiah!

0:27:570:27:59

I do wish you'd say

what you really think,

0:27:590:28:04

Jason!

0:28:040:28:11

So that's a long two hours,

and we'll leave it at that!

0:28:110:28:17

I don't think this will make a lot

of money at the box office, either.

0:28:170:28:21

I think faith-based audiences

will go and be completely mystified

0:28:210:28:24

as to what this was about.

0:28:240:28:26

It is a Passion of the Christ

without any passion.

0:28:260:28:28

What should we be going to see?

0:28:280:28:30

You've got to see Black Panther.

0:28:300:28:32

And you've got to see

it now at the cinema.

0:28:320:28:34

It is becoming a cultural event -

people are seeing it four or five

0:28:340:28:38

times, it has broken

records at the box office,

0:28:380:28:41

it is changing the way that

audiences are going,

0:28:410:28:43

black audiences are flocking to it,

families are enjoying

0:28:430:28:46

the representation.

0:28:460:28:50

It is a great superhero

movie, it's sexy, it's

0:28:500:28:53

exciting, it's funny.

0:28:530:28:54

People are hollering

at it in the cinema.

0:28:540:28:56

If you haven't been to a Marvel

movie in the cinema,

0:28:560:28:59

this is the one to go and see.

0:28:590:29:01

And DVD of the week

is also so lovely.

0:29:010:29:04

I will admit, I cried

at Paddington 2!

0:29:040:29:06

But it's a delight,

it's an absolute sweet,

0:29:060:29:08

delightful, charming,

sometimes silly, but just

0:29:080:29:10

lovely, lovely, lovely.

0:29:100:29:11

Beautifully done...

0:29:110:29:11

He is in his little

outfits, wondering around.

0:29:110:29:13

Paddington didn't win

Best British Film at the Baftas,

0:29:130:29:16

that went to Three billboards.

0:29:160:29:17

This is one of the best British

films we've ever made.

0:29:170:29:25

And how good is Hugh Grant?!

0:29:250:29:27

He's fantastic!

0:29:270:29:27

He is.

0:29:270:29:29

And Sally Hawkins is great in it,

the whole Brown family,

0:29:290:29:31

the whole look of it is perfect.

0:29:310:29:35

It's a work of genius, Paddington 2.

0:29:350:29:39

And when did you cry?!

0:29:390:29:43

I cried at the end!

0:29:430:29:45

I'm not going to give anything away

for anyone who hasn't been

0:29:450:29:48

to see it.

0:29:480:29:52

If you want a marmalade sandwich,

you can't have one!

0:29:520:29:57

It's very sweet, wonderful.

0:29:570:29:58

A mixed week, but

an interesting one.

0:29:580:30:00

Jason, good to see you, thank you.

0:30:000:30:02

That's it for this week.

0:30:020:30:04

Enjoy your cinema-going

and your DVD watching.

0:30:040:30:06

It's terrific, honestly!

0:30:060:30:07

Thanks for being with us.

0:30:070:30:08

Goodbye.

0:30:080:30:16

Good Morning, here's a summary

of today's main stories from BBC

0:30:230:30:26

News.

0:30:260:30:30

Parts of the UK have been

gripped with snow and ice,

0:30:300:30:33

as the "mini beast from the east"

has swept in from Siberia.

0:30:330:30:37

Met Office amber warnings

of a possible risk to life

0:30:370:30:39

are in place in south-west England,

south-east and mid-Wales

0:30:390:30:42

and the West Midlands all day,

where five to ten cm of snow

0:30:420:30:46

is forecast to fall widely.

0:30:460:30:47

There's also travel

disruption and drivers

0:30:470:30:49

are being warned to take care

in the dangerous conditions.

0:30:490:30:51

Sarah Walton is in East Yorkshire

for us this morning.

0:30:510:30:59

What road is behind you?

This is the

a 63 in East Yorkshire at Ellerton

0:31:030:31:13

and it is moving pretty well it has

been gritted but in some places it

0:31:130:31:19

is down to one lane. It is still

icy. We have had flurries of snow

0:31:190:31:25

overnight and a thin layer of snow

in the high winds and the cold

0:31:250:31:29

temperatures has now frozen. We

think conditions will be easing

0:31:290:31:33

throughout the day. Still, people

are being asked to take care by the

0:31:330:31:37

Highways Agency. People are being

asked to stay off the roads

0:31:370:31:44

completely unless you have a 4x4.

Places over the Pennines are

0:31:440:31:49

dangerous and they are getting

reports of ice on roads even if they

0:31:490:31:56

have been gritted. Disruption

0:31:560:32:02

have been gritted. Disruption on the

trains, too. No trains running

0:32:020:32:04

between Manchester and York. There

were supposed to be coaches but

0:32:040:32:08

because of the bad weather, the

coaches aren't web -- running

0:32:080:32:11

either. We had about 97 flights out

of Heathrow cancelled because of the

0:32:110:32:18

weather and that is because the

planes had to be de-iced. You may

0:32:180:32:24

need to check with your airline

before you travel. If you are one of

0:32:240:32:28

those people that needs to travel

today, give yourself extra time and

0:32:280:32:32

take care on the roads.

0:32:320:32:35

People living in

0:32:350:32:43

People living in ten chalets

which are "perilously close"

0:32:510:32:54

to the edge of cliffs on the Norfolk

coast have been told

0:32:540:32:57

to leave their homes

because of strong winds

0:32:570:32:59

and high waves.

0:32:590:33:00

Earlier, Norfolk Police said that

six of the properties

0:33:000:33:02

at Hemsby had a very good chance

of going into the sea.

0:33:020:33:06

In 2013, tidal storms saw three

homes in the village washed away.

0:33:060:33:09

Kent Police have arrested a man

on suspicion of attempted murder

0:33:090:33:12

after several people were injured

when a car was driven into a busy

0:33:120:33:15

nightclub in Gravesend.

0:33:150:33:16

Police say the incident at Blake's

nightclub is not been

0:33:160:33:19

being treated as terror-related.

0:33:190:33:20

Footage posted on social media

appears to show a car

0:33:200:33:23

inside a marquee at the nightclub,

as officers led people to safety.

0:33:230:33:26

The Russian Ambassador to the EU has

told the BBC that Russia had nothing

0:33:270:33:31

to do with the poisoning of a former

spy and his daughter in Salisbury,

0:33:310:33:34

suggesting instead Britain

could have been responsible

0:33:340:33:36

suggesting instead Britain

could have been responsible.

0:33:360:33:38

Speaking to Andrew Marr,

Vladimir Chizhov

0:33:380:33:40

said one of the UK's own research

laboratories could be the source

0:33:400:33:43

of the nerve agent used

in the attempted murder of Sergei

0:33:430:33:46

and Yulia Skripal.

0:33:460:33:47

The Foreign Office has called

the Russian account absolute

0:33:470:33:49

nonsense.

0:33:490:33:50

Meanwhile, the Foreign Secretary has

described Russia's closure

0:33:500:33:52

of the British Counsel and Consulate

in St Petersburg as "futile".

0:33:520:33:55

Writing in the Sun on Sunday,

Boris Johnson says

0:33:550:33:57

the move will punish ordinary

Russians by depriving them

0:33:570:34:00

of opportunities to learn English.

0:34:000:34:01

The move was part of Russia's

response to sanctions

0:34:010:34:04

by the British Government,

in the wake of the poisoning in

0:34:040:34:07

Salisbury.

0:34:070:34:07

A group of MPs says

that the government should consider

0:34:070:34:10

the possibility of delaying

when we leave the EU,

0:34:100:34:12

if complex issues remain unresolved.

0:34:120:34:13

The Exiting the EU Committee

says more time should be

0:34:130:34:16

allowed if a detailed

and comprehensive agreement

0:34:160:34:18

on the future relationship

isn't settled by October.

0:34:180:34:20

The Brexit committee's view

isn't unanimous though -

0:34:200:34:22

a minority report by eight members

warns that a long transition

0:34:220:34:25

would be difficult.

0:34:250:34:33

swimming club any Australian city of

Perth has asked to help find its

0:34:360:34:45

mascot.

0:34:450:34:50

mascot. This is Daphne Duck. The

last time she was seen with 270

0:34:520:34:55

miles north of Perth. She was moving

too quickly for them to hold on.

0:34:550:35:03

It's the little bits of plastic in

the ocean we can't see, not big

0:35:030:35:08

giant yellow ducks. If you see it,

let us know.

0:35:080:35:11

Kat's here with the Sport.

0:35:110:35:16

Good morning. We have fantastic news

to bring you.

You found Daphne Duck!

0:35:160:35:23

And that our skiers are celebrating.

Menna Fitzpatrick and Jen Kehoe.

0:35:230:35:29

They have been so close but so far

for the rest of the game. Two

0:35:290:35:33

silvers and a bronze. They have been

beaten at every turn by these pesky

0:35:330:35:37

Slovakian.

0:35:370:35:47

Slovakian. Farkasova has one format

Golds. The Brits have eaten her to

0:35:490:35:53

it.

0:35:530:35:58

it. We will be speaking to our

reporter live there at the morning.

0:36:010:36:04

-- live at later in the morning.

0:36:040:36:09

It was the perfect end

to Ireland's Six Nations campaign,

0:36:090:36:12

as they beat England 24 points to 15

at Twickenham to win their third

0:36:120:36:16

Grand Slam on St Patrick's day.

0:36:160:36:17

Joe Wilson was watching for us.

0:36:170:36:19

They came to Twickenham and never

looked like losing. But how good

0:36:190:36:22

Ireland were. From the moment the

ball was hoisted into the sky,

0:36:220:36:26

Ireland was on top. Anthony Watson

was there but not there. Gary Ring

0:36:260:36:33

Rose's has provided the pressure for

Ireland. The final stretch delivered

0:36:330:36:37

the ball to the foot of the post.

Touched. England got a try back but

0:36:370:36:45

by half-time they were further

behind because Ireland won the kick.

0:36:450:36:49

They kicked and dashed and touched

down before the line. His seventh

0:36:490:36:55

try of the tournament. Eddie Jones'

unbeaten run at Twickenham was over.

0:36:550:37:04

Ireland's day, Ireland's year. Well,

with these players are celebrating

0:37:040:37:11

behind me from Ireland, some of them

experienced, some of them less so.

0:37:110:37:16

It is easy to forget that Ireland

has lost some of their greatest ever

0:37:160:37:21

players in recent years. No problem.

A special day for everyone involved.

0:37:210:37:31

To come to top it off, it is a tough

place to go.

0:37:310:37:42

place to go.

Many of these Irish

Grand Slam players will be there in

0:37:420:37:48

years to come.

0:37:480:37:49

There were also final day wins

for Scotland over Italy

0:37:490:37:51

and and Wales over France.

0:37:510:37:53

So this is how

the final table looks.

0:37:530:37:55

Ireland are champions,

Wales finish second.

0:37:550:37:57

England supporters may

want to look away -

0:37:570:37:59

they sit only above Italy in fifth.

0:37:590:38:01

Manchester United have made it

through to the semi-finals of the FA

0:38:010:38:04

Cup, beating Brighton

2-0 at Old Trafford.

0:38:040:38:06

Romelu Lukaku struck the first,

and Nemanja Matic hit

0:38:060:38:09

the second - in what has been

a difficult week for Jose Mourinho,

0:38:090:38:12

who didn't hold back

in criticising his players...even

0:38:120:38:14

though they're through

to the last four..

0:38:140:38:22

When the sun is shining, it is easy

to play football. Do you know what I

0:38:240:38:29

mean? When you win matches and

everything goes in your direction,

0:38:290:38:33

even myself, I can play when the sun

is shining but when it's dark and

0:38:330:38:37

when you are under pressure, only

the top ones can do it and today, we

0:38:370:38:42

didn't have many top ones.

0:38:420:38:43

Christian Eriksen stole the show

at the Liberty Stadium as Tottenham

0:38:430:38:46

also eased into the semi-finals

with a comfortable 3-0 win over

0:38:460:38:49

Swansea.

0:38:490:38:49

The Dane scored in each half,

with Erik Lamela providing the other

0:38:490:38:53

goal.

0:38:530:38:53

Liverpool's Mohamed Salah has been

making headlines all season long

0:38:530:38:56

for his outstanding performances,

but perhaps this was his best yet.

0:38:560:38:59

He scored four goals

as Liverpool ran riot

0:38:590:39:01

against Watford, winning 5-0.

0:39:010:39:02

Roberto Firmino scored the other,

assited by Salah, who now

0:39:020:39:05

takes his goal tally to 28

in the Premier League,

0:39:050:39:07

four clear of Spurs' Harry Kane.

0:39:070:39:09

Liverpool leapfrog

Tottenham into third place.

0:39:090:39:17

It wasn't a good day

for rock-bottom West Brom.

0:39:200:39:22

Bournemouth scored

late on to win 2-1.

0:39:220:39:24

It's Albion's seventh straight

Premier League defeat,

0:39:240:39:26

and heaps more pressure

on manager Alan Pardew.

0:39:260:39:28

There were also wins

for Crystal Palace and Everton.

0:39:280:39:32

In the Scottish Premiership,

Hearts beat Partick Thistle 3-0.

0:39:320:39:36

All three goals came

in the first half,

0:39:360:39:38

with Kyle Lafferty opening

the scoring for the home side.

0:39:380:39:41

Partick are now three points

from safety, while the win

0:39:410:39:44

solidifies Hearts

grip on sixth place.

0:39:440:39:48

Aberdeen beat Dundee

1-0 at Pittodrie.

0:39:480:39:49

There was something of a shock

at Ibrox as second placed Rangers

0:39:490:39:52

went down 1-0 to Kilmarnock.

0:39:520:39:54

Ross County and

Hamilton drew 2-all.

0:39:540:40:02

We have had this brilliant success

at, our first gold medal in the

0:40:090:40:13

games and our second success.

0:40:130:40:15

Lets go live to our reporter

Kate Grey who's in Pyeongchang

0:40:150:40:17

for us this morning:

0:40:170:40:19

They have finally done it after

silver and bronze, we have only got

0:40:190:40:23

a gold.

Huge celebrations for Great

Britain. They saved the best till

0:40:230:40:28

last and have one to medals on the

final day of action here in

0:40:280:40:32

Pyeongchang. It was gold for Menna

Fitzpatrick and her guide Jen Kehoe.

0:40:320:40:37

This time in the slalom which means

they have one format medals in these

0:40:370:40:41

games and come the most successful

British Paralympians. Menna

0:40:410:40:46

Fitzpatrick is only 19 years old.

This time, it was in the slalom and

0:40:460:40:52

they won second position. They

0:40:520:40:53

This time, it was in the slalom and

had

0:40:530:40:54

they won second position. They then

had a final run and as they crossed

0:40:540:40:56

the line, they set an unbeatable

time, even for the Slovakian

0:40:560:41:00

Henrieta Farkasova who has been

dominating this category throughout

0:41:000:41:03

these games. It was Britain who was

victorious this time around. A huge

0:41:030:41:08

celebrations at the bottom of the

slopes as you can imagine. Family

0:41:080:41:11

and friends all around. A great day

for great written and another bronze

0:41:110:41:22

means Great Britain has won seven

medals. -- great Britain. They now

0:41:220:41:28

look forward to the closing

ceremony.

Lots more to come.

0:41:280:41:42

I really miss being out there. It

has been 18 degrees over there. -26

0:41:420:41:51

was the coldest I experienced. That

was pretty chilly. Yes.

0:41:510:41:59

was pretty chilly. Yes. We have Dame

Catherine Grainger coming in to talk

0:41:590:42:01

about how well they have done.

0:42:010:42:06

It is coming up to 18 minutes to

seven.

0:42:060:42:08

If you're yet to venture out this

morning, you may find snow

0:42:080:42:11

on your doorstep.

0:42:110:42:12

The freezing temperatures

from Siberia have returned in what's

0:42:120:42:15

being dubbed the "mini

beast from the east".

0:42:150:42:17

Yesterday snow showers swept

across most of the UK,

0:42:170:42:19

with winds of up to 70

miles per hour making it

0:42:190:42:22

feel bitterly cold.

0:42:220:42:23

And there's more to come today.

0:42:230:42:25

We're joined now by meteorologist

and weather presenter,

0:42:250:42:27

Simon King.

0:42:270:42:35

It has been an extraordinary few

weeks. We have gone from -11 or 12

0:42:400:42:47

in the wind chill to balmy spring

days. What is happening?

That is the

0:42:470:42:53

fascination of the weather in the

UK. I love it so much. We are

0:42:530:42:58

Ireland and we are surrounded by

water. It is the Atlantic Ocean to

0:42:580:43:02

the West. -- we are islands. The

weather in the UK is determined by

0:43:020:43:10

which direction the wind is coming

from. If you have south-westerly

0:43:100:43:14

wind, the prevailing wind direction.

The one most spoken about.

0:43:140:43:19

Absolutely. The normal, typical,

average temperatures. Last week.

0:43:190:43:24

Temperatures of 12, 16. In easterly

wind, cold air from Russia. It can

0:43:240:43:33

be very cold. It is also picking up

moisture from the sea. You have very

0:43:330:43:42

cold dry air coming from Siberia.

All the way across Europe and as it

0:43:420:43:47

hits the North Sea, it picks up

moisture and you get a snow showers

0:43:470:43:51

piling in from the North Sea mainly

hitting parts of the UK in the east.

0:43:510:43:55

With the strong winds, the snow

showers are drifting further west.

0:43:550:44:00

Many of us saw them yesterday.

What

is surprising for many of us is we

0:44:000:44:05

expect the northern part of the

country to be cold and be hit with

0:44:050:44:09

snow in winter. The fact it is now

the middle of March and we are

0:44:090:44:13

talking about Devon. And the weather

warnings across the country, the

0:44:130:44:18

breadth of the country, that is what

is surprising many of us.

It is just

0:44:180:44:22

the nature of how cold the weather

is. If it thinks are the typical

0:44:220:44:27

winter, it has been mild and

unsettled, some strong winds.

And

0:44:270:44:33

West.

There has been a bit of snow

but it has been on a knife edge. --

0:44:330:44:38

and wet. When it does slow, it wants

to but it's not quite there. Now we

0:44:380:44:44

have this easterly wind, this cold

air, over the whole of the UK, it is

0:44:440:44:49

a bleak block of ice. Any

precipitation and moisture will

0:44:490:44:55

produce snow. -- big block of ice.

That is why absolutely everywhere is

0:44:550:45:05

susceptible to heavy snow.

Added how

long it will take to explain this

0:45:050:45:11

but how is it that the

south-westerly winds suddenly switch

0:45:110:45:16

to the eastern winds? What happens

to the atmosphere?

0:45:160:45:24

We have had a sudden stratospheric

warming and polar vortex disruption.

0:45:240:45:28

That effectively means we have cold

air which is normally locked up over

0:45:280:45:33

the poles being disrupt that. That

allows cold air to filter down. This

0:45:330:45:38

stratospheric warming means we have

increasingly easterly winds. So when

0:45:380:45:42

you have this event, you can often

get bouts of these easterly winds

0:45:420:45:48

coming in from Siberia.

If you get

down to the pub today, I just want

0:45:480:45:52

to make sure, and you are talking

about that polar vortex disruption,

0:45:520:45:56

and that stratospheric warming...

It

is easier for you to say!

We will

0:45:560:46:01

talk to you later. We have got

pictures coming in on social media.

0:46:010:46:06

We will talk you later. Thank you.

We would like to know how the

0:46:060:46:10

weather looks where you are. You can

send us a picture by emailing us, or

0:46:100:46:17

share your thoughts in our viewers

on our Facebook page.

And Twitter as

0:46:170:46:21

well. Let's talk to have, we were

talking to Simon about the bigger

0:46:210:46:28

picture, but we will talk to Helen.

How is that polar vortex disruption

0:46:280:46:36

looking in terms of, I don't know,

East Anglia?

It is quite

0:46:360:46:40

stratospheric.

0:46:400:46:45

This is actually south Wales. As

Simon said, it is penetrating far

0:46:450:46:49

west, that cold easterly wind. It

results in high pressure over

0:46:490:46:54

Scandinavia, sinking south, allowing

that cold air to come east. A

0:46:540:46:57

retrogressive pattern, if you like.

It is a short lived scenario. We

0:46:570:47:02

will start cutting off that cold air

as we go through tonight and

0:47:020:47:06

tomorrow. As Simon said it is

bitterly cold, right across the

0:47:060:47:09

country this morning. There are

still amber warnings in force from

0:47:090:47:13

the Met Office. These will link wish

their grip, these showers across the

0:47:130:47:18

east, quite quickly. The west is

where we will see some of the worst

0:47:180:47:23

snowfall through today. We have

already seen it in the east, all

0:47:230:47:27

those issues across Yorkshire,

Lincolnshire and the south-east.

0:47:270:47:31

Lots of the focus for today's bad

weather is across the Midlands and

0:47:310:47:35

Westwood. Wales and the south-west

of England will get clobbered by

0:47:350:47:40

more snow. It is snowing quite

heavily right now, absolutely

0:47:400:47:43

treacherous on the roads. This snow

is lolling around in those strong to

0:47:430:47:47

gale force winds, so visibility is

really poor as well. -- blowing

0:47:470:47:52

around. It is icy as well,

compacting that snow, which helps

0:47:520:47:58

the grit and salt work on the roads,

but with temperatures below freezing

0:47:580:48:02

it will remain very hazardous. We

may see that creep ticket to Yanchep

0:48:020:48:07

and County Down, still a peppering

of snow showers in central and

0:48:070:48:10

eastern is golden. -- eastern

Scotland. Take a breath, the idea is

0:48:100:48:16

that we should see these showers

becoming less frequent than they

0:48:160:48:20

were yesterday. For the south and

the west it might take much of the

0:48:200:48:26

day for that snow to clear. Clearly

we are going to see that snow piling

0:48:260:48:31

up, 10- 20 centimetres over the

hills. And it is cold. Very little

0:48:310:48:35

to choose between today and

yesterday, windy in the north but

0:48:350:48:38

bitter if you are out and about.

Through the evening and overnight, a

0:48:380:48:45

subtle change in the wind direction

in the north. Not a particularly

0:48:450:48:50

warm wind direction, but cutting off

that really cold Siberian air.

0:48:500:48:55

Another cold night, another hard

frost. Penetrating frost in the

0:48:550:48:59

south, given the strength of the

wind. Few showers as that high

0:48:590:49:03

pressure starts to cut off the

source of moisture and that cold

0:49:030:49:06

out. Hopefully most of us tomorrow

will see fewer showers, a bit more

0:49:060:49:12

sunshine, slightly higher

temperatures than we have had this

0:49:120:49:15

weekend, but nothing like spring.

Only 5-7 at rest. I will keep you

0:49:150:49:20

posted on that snow through the rest

of the morning.

0:49:200:49:27

When we come back, can you tell us

where the coldest place in the UK is

0:49:270:49:31

today?

Everywhere?

Yes, I suppose

that is the right answer.

0:49:310:49:35

We'll be back with

the headlines at 7:00.

0:49:350:49:37

Now it's time for the Travel Show.

0:49:370:49:41

Coming up on this week's

Travel Show: I dress up and hit

0:49:410:49:44

the road

0:49:440:49:47

here in Japan.

0:49:470:49:48

We are going through the most

fashionable part of Tokyo and I am

0:49:480:49:52

dressed as a fat plumber.

0:49:520:49:58

Lucy gets the lowdown on travelling

without too much plastic.

0:49:580:50:01

Cheers!

0:50:010:50:04

We are starting this week in Japan,

the home of video gaming.

0:50:070:50:11

It is hard to believe that

it's a full 40 years

0:50:110:50:14

since the Space Invaders game

was invented here and recently,

0:50:140:50:20

Tokyo's celebrated that anniversary

of a special exhibition and giant

0:50:200:50:22

video wall, where today's

generation of gamers can

0:50:220:50:25

test their retro skills.

0:50:250:50:26

But Space Invaders isn't the only

iconic game to have been created

0:50:260:50:29

here in Japan.

0:50:290:50:31

Tucked away in the backstreets

of Sibuya, just five minutes

0:50:310:50:34

from the famous crossing,

I have come to find a guided tour

0:50:340:50:37

with a difference.

0:50:370:50:45

I guess the best way to describe

what I am about to experience

0:50:530:50:57

is a self-drive videogame simulation

with some sightseeing thrown in.

0:50:570:51:01

Welcome to MariCAR,

nice to meet you!

0:51:010:51:08

This brings back memories

from my childhood.

0:51:080:51:09

Yoshi, Luigi and Mario.

0:51:090:51:14

It has got to be Mario.

0:51:140:51:18

How do I look?

0:51:180:51:23

I feel like Michelin Mario.

0:51:230:51:25

We have the key that

starts the engine.

0:51:250:51:32

MariCAR have been running these

go-kart tours have been run,

0:51:320:51:34

taking in the many tourist

attractions for several years now

0:51:340:51:37

and to take part you firstly

to show your ID and drivers licence

0:51:370:51:40

from your home country.

0:51:400:51:41

Then there is a compulsory

safety briefing.

0:51:410:51:48

When driving, always one

straight line guys, OK?

0:51:480:51:50

Always one straight line.

0:51:500:51:51

If the tour guide does one,

it means it you just stop

0:51:510:51:55

in one straight line.

0:51:550:51:57

OK?

0:51:570:52:05

If the tour guide does two.

0:52:050:52:06

You simply come up behind,

same lane, always the same lane,

0:52:060:52:09

side by side.

0:52:090:52:10

See the two go-karts

behind me back there?

0:52:100:52:12

They are side-by-side and nice

and close, that is the stopping

0:52:120:52:15

formation we want to see

when the tour guide does two.

0:52:150:52:18

It's going to look like this.

0:52:180:52:20

Two, four, six.

0:52:200:52:21

Is it possible to stall it?

0:52:210:52:24

It is impossible.

0:52:240:52:26

It is automatic.

0:52:260:52:29

At the beginning the engine can be

a bit cold so before we depart it

0:52:290:52:33

might cut out, you

just start it again.

0:52:330:52:35

There is lots to think about,

like how to drive the car

0:52:350:52:38

for a start and I feel

exposed being so low,

0:52:380:52:41

then I have to think

about formations?

0:52:410:52:43

Oh my gosh.

0:52:430:52:44

I'm not the best driver, you know,

right now this costume is the least

0:52:440:52:48

of my worries.

0:52:480:52:48

of my worries.

0:52:480:52:49

I have got my foot on the brake.

0:52:490:52:51

Where is the key?

0:52:510:52:52

John, where is the key?

0:52:520:53:00

LAUGHTER.

0:53:040:53:04

This is ridiculous!

0:53:040:53:05

Oh my God.

0:53:050:53:13

Even though it is a Sunday morning

and the traffic is lighter,

0:53:130:53:16

it takes a while to get used

to driving a vehicle that feels

0:53:160:53:20

so low and exposed.

0:53:200:53:27

Slightly vulnerable,

but I think I am getting the hang

0:53:270:53:30

of driving this car now.

0:53:300:53:31

Oh my gosh.

0:53:310:53:37

Do you see how close

I came to a taxi?

0:53:370:53:39

We are going through the most

fashionable part of Tokyo and I am

0:53:390:53:43

dressed as a fat plumber.

0:53:430:53:44

Little chance of anyone wanting

to copy my outfit here in Harajuku,

0:53:440:53:47

but Nintendo are reportedly unhappy

with their trademark Super Mario

0:53:470:53:50

dungarees and cap being

used by the tours.

0:53:500:53:52

There has been talk of legal action,

but the subtle name change

0:53:520:53:56

from Mario kart to MariCAR

and the inclusion of other

0:53:560:53:58

characters seems to be

keeping the lawyers at bay.

0:53:580:54:01

We are coming up to the crossing.

0:54:010:54:03

Oh my goodness.

0:54:030:54:11

Oh my gosh, I can't believe we are

going through Shibuya crossing!

0:54:220:54:30

Although some of Tokyo's taxidrivers

say that they can be

0:54:310:54:34

disruptive and dangerous.

0:54:340:54:36

Johnny tells me that he has

supervised over 200 tours

0:54:360:54:39

without any serious accidents.

0:54:390:54:41

But several cab drivers

we met still had concerns.

0:54:410:54:46

Last year, a record number of almost

29 million people came to Japan

0:54:460:54:49

and as Tokyo gears up to host

the Olympic Games in two years time,

0:54:490:54:53

the authorities are keen to see

the MariCAR tours continue,

0:54:530:54:56

but they are looking

into how safe they are.

0:54:560:54:59

New regulations now mean that

modifications will have to be made

0:55:290:55:31

to the go-karts and it is hoped that

repositioning tail lights and better

0:55:310:55:37

back and head protection

and mudguards will provide safety

0:55:370:55:39

for other drivers and road

users and pedestrians.

0:55:390:55:42

Tokyo is such a hotbed of trends

and innovation and as the birthplace

0:55:420:55:45

of video games, it would be a shame

to see an end to these tours.

0:55:450:55:49

Let's hope the new safety

regulations will help keep them

0:55:490:55:57

on the road here.

0:56:020:56:09

That was so much fun!

0:56:090:56:10

I really had a good time.

0:56:100:56:12

Once I started to relax and got used

to driving this car it was crazy,

0:56:120:56:16

I can't believe they let you drive

this on the streets of Tokyo.

0:56:160:56:20

I really felt like I was in a video

game most of the time.

0:56:200:56:24

It was crazy and I was so close

to cars, so low down.

0:56:240:56:28

It was really fun and I felt

like a celebrity, everyone

0:56:280:56:31

was waving at you, it was a great

way to see the city.

0:56:310:56:34

We have been hearing

alot in the news lately

0:56:460:56:48

about sustainability -

from coffee cup recycling schemes

0:56:480:56:50

to carrier bags, but being green

when you travel can be tricky.

0:56:500:56:53

Disposable water bottles like this

are easy to fill at home

0:56:530:56:56

without a second thought,

but what if you are in

0:56:560:56:59

a new and unfamiliar city?

0:56:590:57:01

Where do you go to get

clean and free water?

0:57:010:57:03

Some places around the world

are trying to tackle the issue

0:57:030:57:06

by providing more drinking water

with the hope of cutting down

0:57:060:57:09

on single use bottles thrown away.

0:57:090:57:11

But if you are travelling

internationally it is worth firing

0:57:110:57:14

up the Wetap app, that provides

a map of nearby drinking fountains

0:57:140:57:17

to keep you hydrated on the move.

0:57:170:57:19

I really like the fact

that it is community-based,

0:57:190:57:21

so if you stubble across a drinking

fountain that isn't identified,

0:57:210:57:24

you simply tap this button

here and add it to the platform.

0:57:240:57:28

In London, a network of drinking

points is being rolled

0:57:280:57:30

out in summer.

0:57:300:57:34

Here in Borough Market,

new fountains are already up

0:57:340:57:37

and running and rather

than a single-use disposable bottle,

0:57:370:57:39

I have got this to try out.

0:57:390:57:47

The Hidrate Spark bottle

connects to an app on your

0:57:490:57:51

phone via Bluetooth.

0:57:510:57:57

Once you are connected,

a sensor is able to detect how much

0:57:570:58:01

water you are drinking.

0:58:010:58:07

You can set daily goals based

on information based

0:58:070:58:10

on the information you tell and it

will glow to give you a gentle

0:58:100:58:14

reminder when it is time to hydrate.

0:58:140:58:15

However, in order for it to keep

tabs on how much you are drinking it

0:58:150:58:20

needs to be placed on a flat surface

every time you take a swig.

0:58:200:58:23

needs to be placed on a flat surface

every time you take a swig.

0:58:230:58:27

Great if you are at a desk all day,

not so much if you are at the gym

0:58:270:58:32

or on the move.

0:58:320:58:33

I like that you can tell it

where you are in the world,

0:58:330:58:37

if you are in a hot country it

will increase the amount of times it

0:58:370:58:41

tells you to drink.

0:58:410:58:42

It is not just cutting down

on plastic bottles that

0:58:420:58:45

will reduce your carbon footprint.

0:58:450:58:46

I popped in to see Andrew to talk

about some friendly apps

0:58:460:58:49

for my next trip.

0:58:490:58:50

One I would recommend

if you are starting is going

0:58:500:58:53

on Green Globe, it has hotels,

resorts and attractions

0:58:530:58:55

that are eco-friendly.

0:58:550:58:56

It's a pretty extensive

list, tap on Jamaica.

0:58:560:58:58

To be in Jamaica right now!

0:58:580:59:00

You can see there is a list

of all of the different ones here.

0:59:000:59:04

Quite a lot of resorts.

0:59:040:59:05

Quite a lot of different resorts,

you tap on the ones

0:59:050:59:08

you are interested in and you tap

on it and also what it does

0:59:080:59:12

to help the environment.

0:59:120:59:13

The next one is Olio.

0:59:130:59:14

I have heard a lot about this app.

0:59:140:59:17

It is supercool, it is great

if you are travelling or not.

0:59:170:59:20

It is all about reducing food waste.

0:59:200:59:22

And so it means that you can give

away food that you don't need,

0:59:220:59:26

but also get food that

people are giving away.

0:59:260:59:28

If you are planning a trip

and you look in your fridge

0:59:280:59:31

and you are like a have got a carton

of milk and a fruit bowl of fruit

0:59:310:59:36

and it will go to waste.

0:59:360:59:38

Put it on the app and

somebody will collect it.

0:59:380:59:40

The last one I would recommend

is Spinlister, think of it as AirBnB

0:59:400:59:44

but for bikes in your local

area that you can hire.

0:59:440:59:47

I have searched Los Angeles

and you search your local area

0:59:470:59:50

and find what is available

and so there are road bikes,

0:59:500:59:53

mountain bikes, they do surf gear,

ski gear, all sorts of stuff.

0:59:530:59:56

So it usually works out less

than around $20 a day and it is much

0:59:561:00:00

cheaper than getting taxis

everywhere and you are eco-

1:00:001:00:03

friendly because you

are riding a bike.

1:00:031:00:04

And finally, if you can't start

the day without a caffeine fix even

1:00:041:00:08

while away on holiday,

then the Pakito cup could help.

1:00:081:00:11

Reusable coffee cups are nothing

new and some offer a discount

1:00:111:00:14

if you bring your own.

1:00:141:00:15

That it can be annoying

carrying those around.

1:00:151:00:17

What is great about the Pakito is it

swishes down really small

1:00:171:00:21

and extends to three

different sizes.

1:00:211:00:22

It is a little fiddly to pull out,

but once fully extended you've got

1:00:221:00:26

a full-sized cup.

1:00:261:00:27

Regular Americano, please.

1:00:271:00:28

Cheers!

1:00:281:00:30

Hello, this is Breakfast,

with Christian Fraser

1:00:421:00:44

and Naga Munchetty.

1:00:441:00:45

Temperatures plunge as low

as minus 6 overnight as the "mini

1:00:451:00:47

beast from the East" bites.

1:00:471:00:49

Icy conditions are causing problems

for drivers and there are weather

1:00:491:00:51

warnings in place across the breadth

of the UK.

1:00:511:00:59

Amber warnings are still in force,

it is treacherous out there. There

1:00:591:01:04

is more due. Join me in 15 minutes

for a full forecast.

1:01:041:01:17

Good morning it's Sunday

the 18th of March.

1:01:201:01:22

Also this morning:

1:01:221:01:23

A top Russian diplomat insists

Russia had nothing to do

1:01:231:01:26

with the poisoning of a former spy

in Salisbury and suggests Britain

1:01:261:01:29

could have been responsible.

1:01:291:01:37

And we'll hear from a professional

orchestra made up of disabled

1:01:391:01:41

musicians and led by

a disabled conductor.

1:01:411:01:48

In sport its gold at

the Paras in Pyeongchang!

1:01:501:01:52

Menna Fitzpatrick and Jen Kehoe

are the Paralympic slalom

1:01:521:01:54

champions with Millie Knight

and Brett Wild winning bronze.

1:01:541:02:01

Back to our top story.

1:02:011:02:04

Snow and ice has gripped much

of the UK as a cold snap dubbed

1:02:041:02:07

the "mini beast from the East"

1:02:071:02:09

sweeps in from Siberia.

1:02:091:02:10

The Met Office has put

amber warnings in place,

1:02:101:02:12

and they are expected to last

all day today in south-west

1:02:121:02:15

England and south Wales.

1:02:151:02:17

In a moment we'll speak

to Sarah Walton who's

1:02:171:02:23

in Elloughton in Yorkshire,

but first, let's go to

1:02:231:02:26

Sarah Ransome Haldon Hill in Devon.

1:02:261:02:31

We have seen quite heavy flurries of

snow falling yesterday and through

1:02:311:02:35

the night and what you have got is a

thin layer of snow which has frozen

1:02:351:02:41

in the cold temperatures and high

winds. We have just seen snowploughs

1:02:411:02:46

try to clear the fast lane of the

A63. On higher ground you have got

1:02:461:02:52

thicker layers of snow and

Lincolnshire police are warning

1:02:521:02:55

people not to make any journeys if

they can avoid it. Greater

1:02:551:03:02

Manchester Police are warning that

conditions over the Pennines are

1:03:021:03:05

really bad. They used the word

bleak. They tweeted a video showing

1:03:051:03:10

blizzard like conditions and they

had snowploughs out on the M62 and

1:03:101:03:15

they asked people to avoid those

routes. We are seeing disruption on

1:03:151:03:21

the trains. Great Western, North

Western and south-western. There was

1:03:211:03:26

a coach running between Manchester

airport and Europe, but the bad

1:03:261:03:30

weather means the coaches cannot

even run now. Playing cancellations

1:03:301:03:36

out of Heathrow because the planes

have to be de-iced. If you were

1:03:361:03:40

planning to go on holiday today, you

need to check with the website

1:03:401:03:45

before you check. The good news is

we are expecting conditions to ease

1:03:451:03:49

the day. I say that as another

flurry comes in. But it should be

1:03:491:03:56

getting better through the

afternoon. But if you have to make

1:03:561:04:00

the journey, take care and leave

plenty of time.

Please check on all

1:04:001:04:05

potential travelling disruptions.

Let's go to Sarah in Devon. Those

1:04:051:04:13

roads around Dartmoor have really

had it in the last few weeks.

1:04:131:04:21

had it in the last few weeks.

It is

a case of here we go again.

It

1:04:221:04:26

absolutely is. Tell us about the

picture around Dartmoor.

Overnight

1:04:261:04:32

we had more snow, about an inch or

more on higher ground and an inch

1:04:321:04:38

where I am. But right across the UK

we have a snow, high winds and

1:04:381:04:44

plummeting temperatures, some down

around minus six. Around here minus

1:04:441:04:50

four was the lowest temperature we

had. Three amber warnings in place

1:04:501:04:55

in the North West, London and the

south-east. And here in the South

1:04:551:05:00

West right across the region for the

best part of the day. At the moment

1:05:001:05:06

I am close to the A38 were a few

weeks ago some drivers were left

1:05:061:05:11

stranded. Once again an emergency

plan was put in place. Behind me

1:05:111:05:18

either tractor ploughs,

strategically placed to make sure

1:05:181:05:20

they are there if the snow comes. We

are told more snow, around 25

1:05:201:05:27

centimetres in some places, could

arrive around nine o'clock this

1:05:271:05:31

morning. More high winds, up to 50

miles an hour in some places, so the

1:05:311:05:37

message really from the emergency

services is and do not travel unless

1:05:371:05:41

you have absolutely gotten.

Thank

you very much indeed.

1:05:411:05:48

Kent Police have arrested a man

on suspicion of attempted murder

1:05:481:05:51

after several people were injured

when a car was driven into a busy

1:05:511:05:54

nightclub in Gravesend.

1:05:541:05:55

Police say the incident at Blake's

nightclub is not being

1:05:551:05:57

being treated as terror-related.

1:05:571:05:59

Footage posted on social media

appears to show a car

1:05:591:06:01

inside a marquee at the nightclub,

as officers led people to safety.

1:06:011:06:05

The Russian Ambassador to the EU,

Vladimir Chizhov, has suggested

1:06:051:06:08

that the UK's own research

laboratory in Wiltshire could be

1:06:081:06:13

the source of the nerve agent used

in the poisoning of a former Russian

1:06:131:06:17

spy in Salisbury.

1:06:171:06:18

The Foreign Office has

called the Russian account

1:06:181:06:19

"absolute nonsense".

1:06:191:06:22

Here's our Diplomatic

Correspondent, James Robbins.

1:06:221:06:25

Two weeks after the chemical attack

on Sergei and Yulia Skripal,

1:06:251:06:29

Ambassador Chizhov said

there were no stockpiles whatsoever

1:06:291:06:31

of nerve agents left in Russia.

1:06:311:06:33

But then in an interview with

Andrew Marr he went a bit further.

1:06:331:06:37

Asked how the chemical weapon came

to be used in Salisbury,

1:06:371:06:39

Mr Chizhov suggested...

1:06:391:06:41

When you have the nerve agent

or whatever, you check it

1:06:411:06:45

against certain samples that

you retain in your laboratories.

1:06:451:06:50

And Porton Down, as we now all know,

is the largest military facility

1:06:501:06:56

in the United Kingdom that has been

dealing with chemical

1:06:561:06:59

weapons research.

1:06:591:07:04

And it's actually only eight

miles from Salisbury.

1:07:041:07:08

You're not suggesting Porton Down

is responsible for this nerve agent?

1:07:081:07:11

I don't know, I don't know,

I don't have evidence

1:07:111:07:14

of anything having been used.

1:07:141:07:17

As Britain continues to investigate

the chemical attack,

1:07:171:07:20

the Foreign Office dismissed this

latest Russian account

1:07:201:07:23

as absolute nonsense with not

an ounce of truth in it.

1:07:231:07:27

A spokesperson said it's just

another futile attempt

1:07:271:07:29

by the Russian state to divert

the story away from the facts that

1:07:291:07:34

Russia has acted in flagrant breach

of its international obligations.

1:07:341:07:38

James Robbins, BBC News.

1:07:381:07:43

Our correspondent Richard Galpin

is in Moscow this morning.

1:07:431:07:51

They go to the polls today in Russia

and it is the election. It has been

1:07:511:07:56

said that all week maybe the

controversy and the crisis with the

1:07:561:08:00

West has been engineered to make

more people come out to the polls.

1:08:001:08:03

Is that right?

1:08:031:08:09

I don't know if it has been

engineered, but it is significant

1:08:091:08:13

that the Russians decided to

announce its retaliation just

1:08:131:08:17

yesterday, on the eve of the

election. It probably doesn't help

1:08:171:08:21

his strongman image, Vladimir Putin,

the man who has stood up for Russia

1:08:211:08:28

against the nasty West, which is how

the West has been perceived by the

1:08:281:08:32

Kremlin and has been for a long

time. Vladimir Putin has been in

1:08:321:08:38

power since the end of 1999, so it

does help him to stand up as the

1:08:381:08:43

strongman. But in the election there

is no doubt who is going to win. It

1:08:431:08:48

will be Vladimir Putin, not least

because the only serious candidate,

1:08:481:08:53

the opposition candidate, was barred

from taking part in the election. It

1:08:531:08:59

is an almost inevitable outcome that

Vladimir Putin will win with a

1:08:591:09:03

thumping majority.

Richard, thank

you very much indeed.

1:09:031:09:06

Richard, thank you very much indeed.

1:09:061:09:07

The Foreign Secretary has

described Russia's closure

1:09:071:09:09

of the British Counsel and Consulate

in St Petersburg as "futile".

1:09:091:09:12

Writing in the Sun on Sunday,

Boris Johnson says the move

1:09:121:09:15

will punish ordinary Russians

by depriving them of

1:09:151:09:17

opportunities to learn English.

1:09:171:09:18

The move was part of Russia's

response to sanctions

1:09:181:09:20

by the British Government,

in the wake of the

1:09:201:09:22

poisoning in Salisbury.

1:09:221:09:24

A group of MPs says

that the government should consider

1:09:241:09:27

the possibility of delaying

when we leave the EU if complex

1:09:271:09:29

issues remain unresolved.

1:09:291:09:31

The Exiting the EU Committee says

more time should be allowed

1:09:311:09:36

if a detailed and comprehensive

agreement on the future relationship

1:09:361:09:38

isn't settled by October.

1:09:381:09:39

The Brexit committee's view

isn't unanimous though -

1:09:391:09:42

a minority report by eight members

warns that a long transition

1:09:421:09:46

would be difficult.

1:09:461:09:51

It might be freezing here, but take

a look at these incredible pictures.

1:09:511:09:56

This is what spring is supposed to

look like. That is the South west of

1:09:561:10:01

China and what you are seeing some

beautiful cherry blossoms. Visitors

1:10:011:10:07

across the country have been

travelling to see them. People go to

1:10:071:10:13

see the cherry blossoms coming out

in Japan as well, but this is

1:10:131:10:17

south-west China looking absolutely

stunning. Spring has not come here,

1:10:171:10:26

well, it springs and it retracts.

It is not cherry blossom. The mini

1:10:261:10:33

beast from the East has hit as in

the UK and many people will be

1:10:331:10:37

waking up to snow outside.

And it is sticking. Difficult travel

1:10:371:10:43

conditions as well, so you are being

urged to check all potential travel

1:10:431:10:47

disruption on the trains and be very

careful.

1:10:471:10:52

Particularly on flights, there are

major problems at Heathrow on

1:10:521:10:56

short-haul flights, so check with

your operator.

1:10:561:11:00

In June 2017 Buzzfeed published

an investigation into 14 deaths

1:11:001:11:02

on British soil they claimed

were linked to Russia.

1:11:021:11:09

After a poisoning of a former spy in

Salisbury, Amber Rudd has said she

1:11:091:11:15

will look again into those deaths.

1:11:151:11:23

One of the reporters behing

the investigation Jane Bradley

1:11:231:11:25

joins us now.

1:11:251:11:28

The Russian ambassador is saying the

UK could be responsible for the

1:11:281:11:36

poisoning because Porton down is

near Salisbury.

It is not surprising

1:11:361:11:40

when you consider that Russia is

still denying being behind the

1:11:401:11:46

poisoning of Alexander Litvinenko,

despite the fact there is strong

1:11:461:11:50

forensics evidence that Russia was

behind the murder of Alexander

1:11:501:11:55

Litvinenko. Pointing the finger at

the British Government is, as the

1:11:551:12:01

government says, nonsense. Sergei

Skripal was helping the British

1:12:011:12:06

intelligence services by passing on

information to them. We know Russia

1:12:061:12:11

has a clear motive. We know Russia

developed the nerve agent in

1:12:111:12:15

question and we had only recently

discovered the nerve agent, the

1:12:151:12:27

scientist, and he has said so.

We

are focusing this week on Nikolai

1:12:271:12:32

Glushkov who is now subject to a

murder enquiry. I just wonder when

1:12:321:12:40

you look at these investigations is

it difficult to find the line

1:12:401:12:43

between what might involve the state

and what might involve the Mafia?

1:12:431:12:48

That is a very blurred thing.

Yes,

absolutely. When we spoke to the

1:12:481:12:55

multiple American and British

intelligence sources and the ones

1:12:551:12:58

who told us that they suspect all of

these 14 deaths were assassinations

1:12:581:13:03

by Russia, they pointed out that it

was often quite hard to figure out

1:13:031:13:08

whether this was directly the

Russian state or Russian mafia

1:13:081:13:11

groups. In Russia there is often a

crossover between the two. What is

1:13:111:13:17

clear in all of the 14 deaths that

we investigated last year was that

1:13:171:13:22

there were questions to be asked.

There were suspicious circumstances

1:13:221:13:26

around all these deaths. We know

about the death of Boris Berezovsky

1:13:261:13:32

which the police declared as

non-suspicious very quickly, despite

1:13:321:13:37

previous assassination attempts,

despite him being declared public

1:13:371:13:41

enemy number one in Vladimir Putin's

Russia. In other cases basic these

1:13:411:13:46

investigations were not carried out,

forensics tests, witness interviews,

1:13:461:13:52

even checking CCTV cameras, whereas

in this case, the case of Sergei

1:13:521:13:58

Skripal and Nikolai Glushkov, there

has been a very different response

1:13:581:14:01

from the authorities. It has been

swift and bold and the language from

1:14:011:14:05

the off has been describing these as

suspicious deaths with potential

1:14:051:14:10

links to Russia. There has been as

striking difference as to how the

1:14:101:14:14

authorities have handled these

latest attacks in the previous

1:14:141:14:17

deaths and that gives us a better

chance of getting the forensic

1:14:171:14:24

evidence and things like CCTV that

they need to figure out who is

1:14:241:14:28

behind these attacks.

If it is

difficult to differentiate between

1:14:281:14:31

where the state ends and the Mafia

begins, as you were saying, should

1:14:311:14:36

we not put more behind what Jeremy

Corbyn was saying? It is impossible

1:14:361:14:40

at the moment to specifically point

the finger at the Russian state?

We

1:14:401:14:46

have had different evidence from the

British Government and the

1:14:461:14:50

scientific evidence behind Novichok,

the nerve agent that was used. All

1:14:501:14:56

the evidence we have heard from

express as well as the government

1:14:561:15:00

says that this kind of deadly nerve

agent could only be manufactured in

1:15:001:15:05

a state-sponsored laboratory, it is

too dangerous to be made elsewhere,

1:15:051:15:08

in someone's home or somewhere like

that. We know it was developed by

1:15:081:15:15

Russia as the scientist discovered

has explained.

Jane Bradley, good to

1:15:151:15:20

talk to you.

1:15:201:15:27

talk to you. It is quarter past

seven and I think the person you

1:15:271:15:29

really need to hear from is Helen

because people are waking up with

1:15:291:15:33

travel disruptions outside.

1:15:331:15:43

It is generally freezing across most

of the country by a degree or two.

1:15:431:15:47

For many waking up it is a winter

wonderland, excitement for my little

1:15:471:15:53

girls this morning, but on a serious

note it is treacherous out there.

1:15:531:15:57

This is a picture taken recently in

the Midlands. To give you a picture

1:15:571:16:04

of how much snow we have already

got, places like Nottingham have got

1:16:041:16:08

15 centimetres of snow.

1:16:081:16:14

15 centimetres of snow. There is a

lot of snow lying and on some of the

1:16:161:16:21

parts of the motorways and the

faster routes, it will be a

1:16:211:16:28

dangerous driver if you are out

today. The snow showers keep packing

1:16:281:16:32

in across Scotland and Yorkshire and

in the south and west we have got

1:16:321:16:36

some more organised snow. That Met

Office Amber warning is in force for

1:16:361:16:41

most of the day. These two Amber

warnings still cover the snow

1:16:411:16:47

showers packing in behind it, but

they will ease down through the day.

1:16:471:16:51

They will not be as frequent as the

word, but any more snow will add to

1:16:511:16:56

the woes. Some of the slowest areas

at the moment are across Somerset

1:16:561:17:00

and Dorset and in much of Wales,

Central and eastern areas of Wales.

1:17:001:17:08

It is pushing is way westwards on

that gale force wind. That makes

1:17:081:17:12

visibility very poor indeed. There

will be snow showers for Yorkshire,

1:17:121:17:18

perhaps a few penetrating towards

the west across Cumbria. One or two

1:17:181:17:24

in Northern Ireland, but a better

chance of seeing sunshine here. In

1:17:241:17:28

the central lowlands we have got

five centimetres of snow and they

1:17:281:17:32

will only slowly get cut off. But

look at this area of snow. It will

1:17:321:17:38

take much of the day to make its way

further west across Devon and

1:17:381:17:43

Cornwall and finally clear out of

the way. It is tied in with a very

1:17:431:17:48

slow clearing area of low pressure.

We will see appreciable amounts of

1:17:481:17:54

snow. Already ten centimetres in

places and you can double that

1:17:541:17:59

easily. It could cut of small

villages and there could be some

1:17:591:18:03

power line icing and we could see

power issues. A lot to keep our eye

1:18:031:18:07

on. Overnight we cut off those snow

showers. It is drier tonight, but

1:18:071:18:14

still very icy. Tomorrow the high

pressure will squash those showers

1:18:141:18:19

further and it looks drier as we

start the new week.

1:18:191:18:27

Time now for a quick look at the

papers. Let's start with the Sunday

1:18:281:18:33

Times. Some nice pictures of the

Duchess of Cambridge who is heavily

1:18:331:18:37

pregnant at the moment. She has eyes

shamrock on her lapel. Main story,

1:18:371:18:46

the crackdown on the oligarch is

MacWorld in Russia. Apparently there

1:18:461:18:49

will be a meeting next week which

Theresa May will share where they

1:18:491:18:52

will look more closely at the

Russian wealth in the city of

1:18:521:18:55

London.

A quick look at the Mail on Sunday.

1:18:551:19:02

It is saying it will target Russian

dirty money as the escalating crisis

1:19:021:19:08

sees the Kremlin expelled 23 UK

diplomats.

1:19:081:19:11

sees the Kremlin expelled

23 UK diplomats.

1:19:111:19:16

Let's go to PyeongChang because we

have got two gold medals at the

1:19:161:19:19

Paralympics. Tell us all about it.

Paralympics GB have finished these

1:19:191:19:31

games on a high and they have won

two medals on the final day, a gold

1:19:311:19:36

and a bronze, and I am now joined by

our bronze medallists. Sorry, Gold

1:19:361:19:42

medallists. You have got a huge

collection in front of us. What an

1:19:421:19:48

amazing games you have had. Can you

sum it up for us?

I don't think I

1:19:481:19:53

can. It has been absolutely

astonishing the weight this week has

1:19:531:19:57

gone from quite low to extremely

high.

You started with a fall on the

1:19:571:20:05

first day in your first event. What

a huge recovery that has been. Have

1:20:051:20:10

you gained confidence as the week

has gone on?

Definitely, as soon as

1:20:101:20:17

we finished the second race my

confidence got twisted and winning

1:20:171:20:20

the bronze as well was amazing. Then

from the week that went on we have

1:20:201:20:25

just been climbing and climbing and

we have just enjoyed it. That is the

1:20:251:20:30

main thing for us.

And it has been a

nonstop programme for you, it feels

1:20:301:20:36

like you have been in action every

day. How does it feel now?

We are

1:20:361:20:43

tired underneath and running on a

bit of adrenaline at the moment.

1:20:431:20:47

This first bronze was an incredible

achievement, to finish that race and

1:20:471:20:52

win a medal. Then to finish on a

gold medal and put in one of our

1:20:521:20:57

strongest performances this week is

beyond words. It has not sunk in and

1:20:571:21:02

I think probably will not until we

get back to the UK and we are back

1:21:021:21:06

in our own beds having a lie in.

I

imagine your family must be over the

1:21:061:21:13

moon as well.

Definitely, they know

how much we have worked with this.

1:21:131:21:20

Most of them were in tears because

they were so happy for us. It is

1:21:201:21:25

just amazing to have them here and I

am really grateful.

You are such a

1:21:251:21:30

young partnership, only been

together for two years. Do all roads

1:21:301:21:34

lead to Beijing now?

Yes,

absolutely.

First we have got the

1:21:341:21:41

World Championships coming up in

2019. We will focus on that and

1:21:411:21:46

there are ideas about Beijing.

We

can reveal that you have got quite a

1:21:461:21:53

big job this evening in the closing

ceremony. Can you tell us what you

1:21:531:21:56

have got ahead of you?

We will be

the flag-bearers.

An absolute

1:21:561:22:04

honour.

What will that be like? A

bit of pressure. We better get

1:22:041:22:10

practising.

1:22:101:22:14

practising.

Immensely proud of GB

and I am so happy to be the

1:22:151:22:18

flag-bearers.

Huge congratulations,

a gold medal for Paralympics GB on

1:22:181:22:23

the final day of action. Is that

seven or eight?

We have got seven

1:22:231:22:33

medals and they have reached their

target, so Paralympics GB are very

1:22:331:22:37

happy.

We will speak to Dame

Catherine Granger later from UK at

1:22:371:22:42

sport and she will tell us if that

is a good achievement or not.

1:22:421:22:49

Andrew Marr is on BBC One at nine

o'clock this morning.

1:22:491:22:52

What have you got lined up Andrew?

1:22:521:22:54

I have been talking to one of

Vladimir Putin's top diplomats in

1:22:541:22:59

the EU in the aftermath of the

Salisbury attack. You will have seen

1:22:591:23:04

a lot of the papers about an attack

on Russian dirty money. I have got

1:23:041:23:08

Boris Johnson here to talk about

that and much more. A big week for

1:23:081:23:12

Labour. Shami Chakrabarti, will also

be on the programme. Busy at nine

1:23:121:23:20

o'clock.

1:23:201:23:20

Busy at nine o'clock.

1:23:201:23:22

We're here on the BBC News Channel

until nine this morning.

1:23:221:23:25

Coming up later in the programme:

1:23:251:23:28

We hear how one village

is honouring 61 young men

1:23:281:23:30

who left for the Great War

and never returned home.

1:23:301:23:37

We'll look back on GB's most

successful performance

1:23:371:23:39

at a Winter Olympics

with the chair of UK Sport,

1:23:391:23:42

Dame Katherine Grainger.

1:23:421:23:46

Team GB has hit its target which was

between 6-10.

1:23:461:23:54

between 6-10. This is where we say

goodbye to our viewers on BBC One.

1:23:551:23:59

Stay with us on the

1:23:591:24:02
