going forward. We're spending money

unhealthy lifestyles. A daily task for

:03:07.:03:09.

anyone with diabetes. A condition that affects 6%

:03:10.:03:16.

of the adult population. And, when it comes to Type 2

:03:17.:03:24.

diabetes, for the first timd We don't exercise enough and we eat

:03:25.:03:36.

too much. It has been a factor in adult life for a long time, but this

:03:37.:03:40.

is increasingly happening in childhood. The availability of

:03:41.:03:46.

cheap, fast food is clearly contributing to this. It is a major

:03:47.:03:48.

issue and will get worse. Matthew was diagnosed 25 ye`rs ago

:03:49.:03:50.

and wishes he'd done more b`ck then. Back in January his diabetes meant

just lost two toes. Diabetic foot, if you like. I got an

need to be aware that these eight strong possibility of developing

diabetes that will affect you for the rest of your life if yot don't

control it now. Of course, if you could get

:04:27.:04:26.

children doing this all day, we probably wouldn't

:04:27.:04:29.

have the same problems. And the kids at this half tdrm

:04:30.:04:31.

club think more of this Maybe at school we could trx lots of

:04:32.:04:41.

different sports, maybe mord PE sessions. We could maybe do a run

:04:42.:04:48.

every day at school around our fields, and at home may go to the

:04:49.:04:49.

park every day. I guess a run around

:04:50.:04:51.

may be more appealing But, if it helps children avoid

:04:52.:04:53.

illnesses like diabetes, Jersey Police want to hear

:04:54.:04:56.

from anyone who saw pensiondr John McCarthy on the day

:04:57.:05:04.

:05:05.:05:06.

to come forward if they spoke to, or saw, the 73-year-old before

:05:14.:05:16.

to establish the identity and cause of death of the middle-aged man

and the authorities are still trying Boat owners in Guernsey

are optimistic conditions in local It follows a difficult few xears,

:05:29.:05:39.

with clashes with port authorities over issues including mooring

:05:40.:05:44.

fees and security. But, as Mark Inchley's been finding

:05:45.:05:48.

out, a new survey suggests change When a survey of local boat owners

:05:49.:05:51.

was announced 12 months ago, there were hopes it could m`rk

:05:52.:05:58.

a new dawn for marine It followed a drop in the ntmber

:05:59.:06:01.

of local boat owners since the 2008 financial cr`sh,

:06:02.:06:05.

something not helped by ongoing disputes over mooring fees

:06:06.:06:08.

and harbour facilities. And, in the cold light of d`y,

:06:09.:06:15.

many of these issues remain. The problem over the last three

:06:16.:06:26.

years has been turmoil and uncertainty. We have had people in

:06:27.:06:31.

power who have no marine experience whatsoever, and the people running

:06:32.:06:35.

the marinas have no marine experience. Now that has all been

:06:36.:06:40.

altered, so I am hoping now we are going to see the harbours b`ck on an

:06:41.:06:43.

even keel and we can all move forward.

:06:44.:06:46.

The survey gave a sense of who boat owners are, their habits,

:06:47.:06:49.

how much they spend, and highlighted concerns

:06:50.:06:50.

about issues such as security and the removal of hosepipes.

:06:51.:06:55.

For the harbours it follows what has been a long focus on the crtise ship

:06:56.:06:58.

industry, with harbourmaster Chad Murray admitting he's neglected

:06:59.:07:00.

It is such a wide customer base and so many differing customer sectors,

:07:01.:07:12.

whether it is commercial, local visitors, that we are always going

:07:13.:07:15.

to come under some sort of criticism. I think we need to be

:07:16.:07:19.

conscious of that and try to strive for better customer service, and try

:07:20.:07:21.

to listen to people and then react. So optimism all round,

:07:22.:07:24.

but with future developments at the harbour very much

:07:25.:07:26.

under the spotlight, it's important they have

:07:27.:07:28.

everyone on board. There will be an ice skating rink

:07:29.:07:31.

at Jersey's Fort Regent this winter, despite organisers previously

:07:32.:07:35.

saying there wouldn't. It was thought the rink couldn't

:07:36.:07:36.

compete against a new one at the Weighbridge in St Helier

:07:37.:07:39.

but the States stepped in to run it after an online petition was signed

:07:40.:07:42.

by more than 1,000 people. They've crunched the numbers

:07:43.:07:46.

and believe the Fort rink I think the public wants and ice

:07:47.:08:00.

rink at Fort Regent, and I think the public will support this. There has

:08:01.:08:04.

been a petition, a lot of pdople asking for the ice rink to be at

:08:05.:08:08.

Fort Regent, and given the numbers we got last year, we are confident

:08:09.:08:12.

that the public will really get behind Fort Regent, come up and

:08:13.:08:13.

support local businesses. Jersey's top gold medal winner

:08:14.:08:15.

at the last Island Games has decided not to defend her titles

:08:16.:08:18.

in Gotland next summer. Cyclist Kim Ashton was one

:08:19.:08:21.

of the stars of Jersey 2015, winning all six golds

:08:22.:08:23.

available to her. But she's withdrawn from thd team

:08:24.:08:25.

this time because of what she The roof of St Anne's Church

:08:26.:08:28.

in Alderney was seriously d`maged Now, with insurers prepared to pay

:08:29.:08:35.

about a quarter of a million pounds towards the scaffolding needed

:08:36.:08:40.

for repairs, the States of Alderney's taking the opportunity

:08:41.:08:44.

to do extensive renovations Shrouded in scaffolding,

:08:45.:08:48.

it is difficult to appreciate the magnificent parish

:08:49.:08:57.

church of St Anne. Designed by George Gilbert Scott,

:08:58.:08:59.

the fabric of the historic church In March we had a tremendous storm.

:09:00.:09:15.

They came from the wrong angle and damaged the roof. The insur`nce

:09:16.:09:21.

company finally got involved, and having to put scaffolding up, we had

:09:22.:09:28.

a wonderful architect who c`me and investigated after the five,year

:09:29.:09:33.

review, and out of that camd the fact that the whole roof nedded

:09:34.:09:34.

renovation. Despite insurers having agrded

:09:35.:09:37.

to pay an estimated ?250,000 for the scaffolding,

:09:38.:09:39.

needed to repair the storm damage, the States of Alderney

:09:40.:09:42.

is still going to have to come up with the money needed to carry

:09:43.:09:45.

out the remedial work - We already have some states money

:09:46.:09:59.

allocated to the church, of which there is a residue of about

:10:00.:10:04.

?125,000. We are now adding to that to carry out essential repahrs and

:10:05.:10:08.

renovations. We debated this in the States last Wednesday, and H am

:10:09.:10:11.

delighted to say that it was unanimously supported.

:10:12.:10:14.

Next spring, once the work is completed and the scaffolding

:10:15.:10:16.

removed, one will again be `ble to refer to the parish church

:10:17.:10:19.

of St Anne as the "Cathedral of the Channel Islands".

:10:20.:10:26.

The Channel Islands are the focus of a national TV programme

:10:27.:10:29.

Alderney's "abundance" of whldlife, Jersey's cows, and Sark's traditions

:10:30.:10:33.

all feature in tonight's ephsode of Little British Islands at 8pm,

:10:34.:10:36.

which is billed as a taste of the idyllic life in the hslands.

:10:37.:10:48.

I never thought I would be doing this!

:10:49.:10:55.

I know what I will be watchhng at 8pm! It felt mild today, so David,

:10:56.:11:02.

tell us you have got good ndws. I think I have, yes. If you want

:11:03.:11:07.

rain there isn't a great de`l in the forecast. Rain at this time of the

:11:08.:11:10.

year is what we normally get, so things are starting to get ` little

:11:11.:11:14.

bit drier at the moment. Thdre is the possibility of some drizzle

:11:15.:11:18.

tonight, but the main threat is the mist and fog. It did here today and

:11:19.:11:22.

it gave us some sunshine. This picture was sent in by one of our

:11:23.:11:29.

weather watchers. I think the fog will return overnight tonight, so it

:11:30.:11:33.

will be misty, there will bd some sunny spells and it will generally

:11:34.:11:38.

feel quite mild tomorrow with those temperatures around 15 or 16

:11:39.:11:42.

degrees. We have high presstre, it is the same story, it has not

:11:43.:11:46.

changed much. The same area of low pressure -- high pressure is across

:11:47.:11:51.

as into the weekend. It movds a little bit further east on Saturday,

:11:52.:11:55.

and will probably bring southerly winds, so perhaps higher

:11:56.:11:59.

temperatures into the weekend. This cloud that has been covering parts

:12:00.:12:04.

of Somerset, Dorset and Devon, is drifting down towards the islands

:12:05.:12:07.

overnight tonight. It is just about thick enough to give some drizzle in

:12:08.:12:11.

the wind overnight tonight, but at the same time it will turn puite

:12:12.:12:15.

misty, with even the risk of if you fog patches by the morning, and

:12:16.:12:19.

night-time temperatures of 01 or 12 degrees. Tomorrow, the posshbility

:12:20.:12:25.

of the odd light shower, but most of it will be gone by lunchtimd, and

:12:26.:12:29.

into the afternoon we should get some sunshine. It will feel quite

:12:30.:12:35.

pleasant, 15 or 16 beehive. Dash-macro de hi.

:12:36.:12:43.

Not much for our surfers. The sea temperature at the moment is 15

:12:44.:12:47.

degrees. It is the warmth we will notice as

:12:48.:13:00.

we head to the weekend, with a top temperature of 17 on Saturd`y.

:13:01.:13:04.

Have a good evening. Thank xou, David. Looking good for the weekend.

:13:05.:13:09.

That's all from us in the Channel Islands. Good night.

:13:10.:13:14.

deeper story. Thank you for joining us. My pleasure.

:13:15.:13:17.

All this week on Spotlight we're featuring some

:13:18.:13:19.

of the well-established manufacturers in the region

:13:20.:13:20.

who tend to stay "under the radar" despite carrying

:13:21.:13:22.

Tonight we're at a Cornwall company which, over the decades,

:13:23.:13:26.

has helped British TV viewers enjoy some of the ground-breaking moments

:13:27.:13:29.

in broadcasting, from Telst`r to the first moon landings.

:13:30.:13:31.

Our business correspondent Neil Gallacher reports

:13:32.:13:33.

This is the kind of manufacturing many people seem to assume Britain

:13:34.:13:44.

The machining of precision components that starts out

:13:45.:13:50.

The whole process from design to manufacture has been

:13:51.:13:54.

This business is different from the others we are feattring

:13:55.:14:09.

as there is no easy way to say what it is that they do.

:14:10.:14:12.

Despite being called Flann Microwave, they have nothing

:14:13.:14:14.

to do with Flann Microwave and definitely have nothing

:14:15.:14:16.

This equipment will be sold around the world and Flann

:14:17.:14:20.

Their equipment was key for this station

:14:21.:14:27.

Up on the fantastic dish aerial focuses the interest of the nation.

:14:28.:14:36.

Scientists and the Post Offhce engineers...

:14:37.:14:40.

They received some of the fhrst live transatlantic TV

:14:41.:14:46.

Flann's components are everywhere here.

:14:47.:15:00.

All these components have to be designed and manufactured. Companies

:15:01.:15:08.

like Flann are the bedrock of the satellite industry.

:15:09.:15:10.

Flann moved to Cornwall in 1970 having launched

:15:11.:15:12.

Being down in Cornwall, away from the pressures of the rest

:15:13.:15:18.

of the country, they are frde to think and be creative and make

:15:19.:15:25.

solutions to problems that our customers present,

:15:26.:15:29.

or maybe the customers don't know what they have got.

:15:30.:15:41.

Flann's technology helped bring pictures of the moon

:15:42.:15:45.

They're still at the cutting edge, but today that means

:15:46.:15:49.

A Devon artist has been givdn the massive challenge to make a

:15:50.:16:04.

sculpture celebrating the lhfe of David Bowie. It will be installed in

:16:05.:16:08.

Buckinghamshire where he latnched two of his albums of the 1970s.

:16:09.:16:13.

Sculptor Andrew Sinclair lives and works that works near North`llerton.

:16:14.:16:19.

Our reporter goes to meet hhm. Look closely. Who do you see?

:16:20.:16:27.

# There is a star man... David Bowie in the early 1970s. A cast of the

:16:28.:16:39.

music icon's face at that thme, it is inspiration for Devon artist

:16:40.:16:43.

Andrew Sinclair's own David Bowie masterpiece. I am studying the

:16:44.:16:47.

facial features, looking at what makes you say so unusual. It is

:16:48.:16:52.

small now but imagine this. Life-size and cast in bronzd. It is

:16:53.:16:59.

not going to be a pop star standing with a guitar or a microphone. It

:17:00.:17:03.

has to be more than that. There is too much to David's personality to

:17:04.:17:06.

just present him as one point in time. He wasn't just Ziggy Stardust.

:17:07.:17:16.

He was a myriad of things. The artwork is planned for Aylesbury in

:17:17.:17:19.

Buckinghamshire where the star launched two albums. His music and

:17:20.:17:24.

even his life itself contintes to inspire here. This soundscape

:17:25.:17:36.

generated from data about D`vid Bowie's album sales. Great pop

:17:37.:17:41.

artists have an impact on the whole of society during the time they are

:17:42.:17:44.

active and he was active for so many years and he has had such a great

:17:45.:17:48.

impact. It is important we remember and celebrate people like that. Back

:17:49.:17:52.

in the studio. Fundraising hs underway to pay for the sculpture.

:17:53.:17:58.

The exact design is secret for now. What is Andrew Sinclair feeling

:17:59.:18:03.

under pressure? To say a lifetime for me and something that -, a

:18:04.:18:10.

chance of a lifetime. Something I can create for David Bowie fans

:18:11.:18:14.

worldwide. Something that would inspire them. Really import`nt. I'm

:18:15.:18:15.

sure David would agree. Now, if you were watching Spotlight

:18:16.:18:28.

last night you'll remember the story about the group of people

:18:29.:18:31.

in their 90s at a care home in Dorset who'd been learning

:18:32.:18:34.

to post their images on sochal media using the hashtag

:18:35.:18:37.

#connectionsproject to keep them As you can see, they've

:18:38.:18:38.

been at it again today. Well, after the programme

:18:39.:18:42.

we were contacted by one of our viewers, Joan Cool,

:18:43.:18:45.

who at 97 years old is a regular We spoke to her earlier via webcam

:18:46.:18:48.

about when she started Well, my daughter,

:18:49.:18:51.

it must be about... Said, "Mum, you can

:18:52.:19:02.

programme your video. And I thought, if I got a computer,

:19:03.:19:12.

I could print the minutes as I had to type them on an old typewriter

:19:13.:19:31.

with correcting fluid I can see that you are

:19:32.:19:34.

on Facebook as well. Do you have lots of friends

:19:35.:19:39.

on Facebook? I had 40 greetings on my

:19:40.:19:41.

Facebook for my birthday. Tell us some of the

:19:42.:19:48.

things you do with it. I'm afraid of making

:19:49.:19:53.

a mistake myself. And Joan, we know it was yotr

:19:54.:20:10.

birthday last Sunday. Can we just say that

:20:11.:20:13.

you do look lovely today, cos you've had your hair done this

:20:14.:20:15.

morning, haven't you? Yes, it couldn't have been

:20:16.:20:17.

a better day, could it? How would you say the internet has

:20:18.:20:23.

changed your life, then, in terms of how

:20:24.:20:25.

you communicate with people now Instead of phoning, I just send

:20:26.:20:29.

a message to my son or play Scrabble And another friend I know,

:20:30.:20:34.

I've met three friends who've been I have one friend who I

:20:35.:20:45.

say good morning to. We both say good

:20:46.:21:05.

morning to each other. And Joan, for anybody who doesn t do

:21:06.:21:07.

social media who hasn't got a computer, what would

:21:08.:21:14.

you say to them? Well, I've just been talking

:21:15.:21:17.

to one of my friends now I said, "Oh, if I can do

:21:18.:21:25.

it, she can." And, I mean, I must admit I get

:21:26.:21:34.

in a mess sometimes, I think we all have problems

:21:35.:21:38.

with the internet from time to time, but one of the things that ht has

:21:39.:21:43.

brought us is the opportunity to speak to you, and it's bden one

:21:44.:21:46.

of my favourite interviews. Joan, thank you very much

:21:47.:21:49.

indeed for joining us. We could have chatted to Jonah all

afternoon. It made her day ,- made our day. She has posted a F`cebook

:22:08.:22:15.

picture tonight of her who was just one-year-old with her mother. Thank

:22:16.:22:17.

you very much for sending it. Now, there's just three weeks to go

people moving and raising And we're not sure who had the most

:22:31.:22:32.

fun - Pudsey or the shoppers! OK, are we going to

:22:33.:22:39.

jump together then? And if you want to get involved
