That's all from the BBC News at Six, so it's goodbye from me,

:00:00.:00:07.

Welcome to BBC Channel Islands on Thursday December 22nd.

:00:08.:00:09.

Caught by American intelligence. The prison worker from Jersey jailed for

:00:10.:00:23.

sending indecent images of children. Growing generosity -

:00:24.:00:25.

how a few presents turned into a huge pile and are now

:00:26.:00:27.

on their way to local children. The legacy of Alan Whicker,

:00:28.:00:30.

and how it s helping It has been a privilege to be able

:00:31.:00:41.

to support this hospital in Alan's name. Because sight meant everything

:00:42.:00:49.

to him. An IT officer at Jersey's prison has

:00:50.:00:50.

been jailed for 18 months for distributing indecent

:00:51.:00:54.

images of children. 28-year-old Simon Edward Gascoyne

:00:55.:01:02.

was caught after Homeland Security Simon Gascoyne on his way to HMP

:01:03.:01:05.

La Moye after being jailed Gascoyne, who worked at the prison,

:01:06.:01:16.

had been sharing indecent images Jersey Police found post-it notes

:01:17.:01:20.

with evidence of online user names Today, the court heard Gascoyne had

:01:21.:01:27.

used a mobile phone app to share at least 12 images

:01:28.:01:33.

with seven different groups. Some of the images were in

:01:34.:01:36.

the most severe category. He was caught after US

:01:37.:01:39.

authorities sent Jersey Police a disk of evidence showing

:01:40.:01:43.

his online activity. And a later investigation showed

:01:44.:01:46.

he'd accessed pornography - albeit legal - while at his desk

:01:47.:01:49.

at La Moye. The court heard Gascoyne claimed

:01:50.:01:54.

he didn't know why he'd done it, he didn't find images

:01:55.:01:59.

of children sexually appealing, and that he was only

:02:00.:02:01.

interested in trading images. He described his own behaviour

:02:02.:02:03.

as disturbing, and said sharing Solicitor General Mark Temple -

:02:04.:02:05.

acting for the prosecution - said the former IT worker recognised

:02:06.:02:11.

he'd ruined his life. His defence advocate,

:02:12.:02:18.

Pierre Landick, said Gascoyne knew his behaviour had

:02:19.:02:20.

been repugnant and abhorrent and asked for a sentence

:02:21.:02:22.

of community service. The court heard he was fearful

:02:23.:02:24.

of prison having worked there. But the judge, William Bailhache,

:02:25.:02:29.

said the community would expect a jail term, although he recognised

:02:30.:02:31.

the defendant needed help. Gascoyne is now back at La Moye

:02:32.:02:36.

but on the other side of the bars. Well, the BBC asked the prison

:02:37.:02:43.

for an interview but instead "There was no evidence of illegal

the national news and weather forecast, this big weather front

:03:34.:03:38.

is that neither the masters of our ships or the operations team, if the

weather is such that it is not safe on appropriate to sail, we will

it and we know about the disruption it causes. But, frankly, it is the

:03:51.:03:52.

best thing to do. The BBC has agreed to take over

:03:53.:03:55.

the cost of providing free TV licences for eligible islanders over

:03:56.:03:58.

the age of 75 in Jersey. The BBC will pick up the bill

:03:59.:04:01.

from 2018, saving the public purse more than a quarter of a million

:04:02.:04:04.

pounds by 2020. The new licence deal

:04:05.:04:06.

between the corporation and the island's government also

:04:07.:04:08.

included a commitment from the BBC to continue to provide Jersey

:04:09.:04:10.

Dame Mary Perkins. The committee of nine will start

early in the new year, when the event logo will

:05:09.:05:11.

also be revealed. Christmas is a time for giving,

:05:12.:05:13.

and while many islanders will spend the Sunday opening presents

:05:14.:05:18.

and tucking into a turkey dinner, there are of course some

:05:19.:05:20.

who are less fortunate. Three years ago, a Jersey woman

:05:21.:05:23.

started the online group A Gift For Christmas,

:05:24.:05:27.

appealing for donations Charlie McArdle has

:05:28.:05:28.

been finding out more. It started as a simple idea,

:05:29.:05:34.

helping somebody less Three years on and it's snowballed

:05:35.:05:37.

with the help of social media. Once I set up the page, within one

:05:38.:05:52.

hour, there was 100 plus likes. That is amazing. I started to get

:05:53.:05:57.

messages and loss of support. People suggested they would help us, which

:05:58.:06:00.

was fantastic. Since then, it has absolutely grown to what it is

:06:01.:06:02.

today, which is huge. Food, toys, toiletries and treats

:06:03.:06:04.

donated by islanders They go to three Jersey charities,

:06:05.:06:07.

including The Grace Trust, We assist them by providing food

:06:08.:06:22.

parcels for them. They appeared with a truck to pick up the food and I

:06:23.:06:25.

had to send them away to get a bigger lorry. I think they were

:06:26.:06:27.

amazed by how much we had collected. This Christmas, the team

:06:28.:06:29.

of volunteers have already wrapped For us, it is about being able to

:06:30.:06:40.

just have the satisfaction that they are getting something on Christmas

:06:41.:06:45.

Day. A lot of us take for granted being able to what down the stairs

:06:46.:06:49.

on Christmas Day and have a pile of presents under the Christmas tree.

:06:50.:06:51.

We're not all that fortunate. And the project has become

:06:52.:06:53.

so popular, they hope to spread even He once said he counted himself one

:06:54.:06:56.

of the luckiest men in the world. Now, his legacy is helping

:06:57.:07:03.

some of the unluckiest. A foundation set up in memory

:07:04.:07:05.

of the journalist and broadcaster Alan Whicker, who lived in Jersey,

:07:06.:07:09.

has been tackling child His widow's been to Uttar Pradesh

:07:10.:07:12.

to see the difference it's making, Alan Whicker was best known

:07:13.:07:17.

for travelling the globe reporting But his partner of more than 40

:07:18.:07:24.

years says it was what he saw when the cameras stopped that made

:07:25.:07:30.

the biggest impression. The thing about India is that a

:07:31.:07:39.

graduate by the throat and choo-choo into consciousness. You cannot abhor

:07:40.:07:43.

what you see. Everything is exaggerated and extreme -- cannot

:07:44.:07:49.

ignore. The colours, noises, wealth and poverty. Very difficult for

:07:50.:07:54.

Alan. Because under that clipped moustache, there was quite a soft

:07:55.:07:58.

heart. He did not like the idea of climbing over huddled bodies to

:07:59.:08:01.

drink champagne on a moonlit terrace with a film star. It made him feel

:08:02.:08:04.

quite ill. Going to school and learning

:08:05.:08:05.

is a way out of poverty for children here, but sometimes something

:08:06.:08:09.

incredibly simple gets in the way. Children with bad eyesight aren't

:08:10.:08:11.

able to follow lessons at school, and they can't afford to get glasses

:08:12.:08:14.

or the help they need. That's where the

:08:15.:08:16.

Vision Van comes in. Paid for by the Whicker's World

:08:17.:08:19.

Foundation, it's a mobile one stop shop to help children

:08:20.:08:22.

with sight problems. They've been doing the first-ever

:08:23.:08:27.

eye tests at schools in the region. It is amazing to see all the

:08:28.:08:36.

schoolchildren. Over 600 children here and at least 90 have been on

:08:37.:08:44.

the Vision van. Many have had treatments allowing them to get

:08:45.:08:46.

glasses, which is amazing. If you can identified things early, they

:08:47.:08:56.

have a much better chance of getting out of politics. -- poverty.

:08:57.:09:01.

The foundation's also paid for a children's ward in one

:09:02.:09:03.

of the few eye hospitals in Uttar Predesh.

:09:04.:09:05.

So the Channel Islander famous for seeing the world has been

:09:06.:09:08.

helping some of the world's poorest children see it too.

:09:09.:09:10.

I am so glad that Alan has enabled us to do something, even however

:09:11.:09:17.

small, to make a difference. So, darling, if you're listening, I am

:09:18.:09:20.

not using all those girls. Thank you.

:09:21.:09:22.

Let's take a look at tomorrow's forecast now with David Braine.

:09:23.:09:26.

Good evening. I think Christmas this year is likely to be quite a mild

:09:27.:09:35.

one. It will also be quite windy. The winds increase steadily through

:09:36.:09:38.

the day tomorrow. It will be a bright start. Rain later,

:09:39.:09:45.

particularly after dark. It also becomes increasingly windy west,

:09:46.:09:47.

four a short while, gale force winds. The reason is the area of low

:09:48.:09:53.

pressure. It is a long way away from us at the moment. This lump of cloud

:09:54.:09:56.

on the other side of the Atlantic will stop at it is moving fast. The

:09:57.:10:00.

centre of the low-pressure passes between Scotland and the Faroe s.

:10:01.:10:11.

Along the leading edge of the weather front, the isobars are

:10:12.:10:14.

squeezed up together and that is a strong gust of wind. It could well

:10:15.:10:18.

be for a couple of hours we have blustery winds. By Christmas Eve,

:10:19.:10:23.

and area of high pressure across Spain and Portugal down here.

:10:24.:10:27.

Westerly winds for us. Even know whether France approach from the

:10:28.:10:32.

West during Christmas Day, I do not think we will have many problems

:10:33.:10:35.

associated with that. Christmas Day itself could be rather grey with

:10:36.:10:38.

spots of rain here and there. But it is mild. Overnight, a few showers.

:10:39.:10:44.

Not many. Enough clear spells in between showers to low temperatures

:10:45.:10:51.

to get well into double figures. Predominantly dry. With clear skies,

:10:52.:10:54.

temperatures dipping to six or seven. It is quite chilly to start

:10:55.:10:59.

tomorrow. The breeze will continue to increase through the morning

:11:00.:11:01.

tomorrow, which is bright and largely dry. By the middle of you --

:11:02.:11:10.

afternoon, there is more cloud. By the end of the women," is a bricks

:11:11.:11:13.

of rain and gusty winds are associated with that as well. 11

:11:14.:11:16.

Celsius will be the maximum temperature tomorrow. If you are

:11:17.:11:21.

travelling, particularly by ferry, you need to check the details.

:11:22.:11:24.

Strong winds will whip up pretty big waves on the English Channel. For

:11:25.:11:29.

all of us are across the islands, we could have shot gusts of wind up to

:11:30.:11:34.

45-50 mph. Here are the times of high water... Some quite big waves,

:11:35.:11:43.

for many of our beaches, dangerous conditions once winds get going. The

:11:44.:11:49.

best of the surf through the morning. Here are the winds on the

:11:50.:12:00.

coasts. Quite weather for Spain and Portugal

:12:01.:12:03.

here after wet weather in last year weeks. It is dry. Quite cool across

:12:04.:12:08.

central France and eventually the rain will turn up here. Christmas

:12:09.:12:11.

Eve is blustery with some showers. Christmas Day is mild and breezy.

:12:12.:12:13.

Have a good night. You're up-to-date with the latest

:12:14.:12:15.

news for the Channel Islands. I'll be back with your

:12:16.:12:17.

news at 10.30pm. The Boconnoc Estate,

:12:18.:12:19.

which owns the land, says the overgrown beech hedging

:12:20.:12:32.

along the Glynn valley had to be chopped down because branches

:12:33.:12:35.

were dropping onto the road. The richly verdant Glynn Valley

:12:36.:12:37.

near Bodmin stimulates the senses of any motorist

:12:38.:12:45.

travelling along the A38. That was until, during overnight

:12:46.:12:49.

closures of the arterial route, saw a swathe of beech trees of

:12:50.:12:53.

more than a mile long cut Obviously, to have done them as it

:12:54.:12:57.

should have been done, cutting out the larger ones

:12:58.:13:10.

and allowing smaller ones to grow so that over the years

:13:11.:13:14.

they are coppiced, The estate who owns this land

:13:15.:13:17.

says they cut the trees because of squirrel damage

:13:18.:13:25.

and the danger of branches falling Wildlife experts say squirrel

:13:26.:13:28.

populations are so vast here that the amount of damage

:13:29.:13:34.

to trees with them ripping off the bark to get to the sap

:13:35.:13:38.

below is a real problem. Nationally, squirrel damage

:13:39.:13:42.

to forests is costing more This, on top of larch disease,

:13:43.:13:46.

ash dieback and sudden oak death, causes poses a real threat

:13:47.:13:53.

to our green and pleasant land. The Forestry Commission

:13:54.:13:58.

says it supports what it describes as a coordinated,

:13:59.:14:00.

targeted and locally delivered control of what is

:14:01.:14:03.

increasingly seen as a pest. Baking has become a favourite past

:14:04.:14:14.

time for many after the huge success But in one village in Dorset

:14:15.:14:18.

volunteers have decided to combine learning how to make bread

:14:19.:14:23.

with helping others. The project based in Sutton Poyntz

:14:24.:14:26.

near Weymouth gives people a chance to practise their kneading

:14:27.:14:29.

and cooking, and the end products are handed over to charities

:14:30.:14:32.

who are supporting the homeless Our Dorset reporter

:14:33.:14:34.

Simon Clemison has been meet Right, ladies and gentlemen, today

:14:35.:14:47.

is our last meeting before Christmas, and we're going make a

:14:48.:14:51.

centrepiece is mystery lunch. -- Christmas tree.

:14:52.:14:57.

It must be particularly lonely at Christmas, being on the street and

:14:58.:15:04.

on your own. It must be great to feel people care about you.

:15:05.:15:11.

Are you making bread? You concentrate on meeting the

:15:12.:15:12.

dough. The smack needing the dough. We have at least one day where we

:15:13.:15:28.

bake in our kitchens and take them down somewhere where homeless people

:15:29.:15:31.

need food. You have busily been baking bread on

:15:32.:15:38.

a larger scale, but is it the simplicity of baking for someone

:15:39.:15:43.

else that draws so many people in? Yes, these bakers love to make bread

:15:44.:15:46.

in their own homes. They want it to be a special craft that they have

:15:47.:15:50.

learned, and they are passing it on to someone who really needs it.

:15:51.:15:55.

This is just a white loaf, it has been put into a Platt.

:15:56.:16:02.

Hopefully today it will go off to one of the charities, and one hopes

:16:03.:16:12.

that they will get to eat it. Right, marvellous!

:16:13.:16:19.

It shows people that they are being thought of. To those who do not

:16:20.:16:26.

always appreciate and respect the nature of some of the people that

:16:27.:16:30.

use our service. We have got to say thank you to the

:16:31.:16:32.

bakers at some point. Snow White,

:16:35.:16:36.

is well underway and believe you me, It's a family tradition for many

:16:37.:16:40.

at Christmas so Victoria took to the stage to speak to two

:16:41.:16:44.

of the stars who are thrilled Well, being a Christmas baby,

:16:45.:16:47.

I went to pantomime every year I absolutely loved it,

:16:48.:16:53.

but shows certainly have changed if you're going to meet any dragon,

:16:54.:16:58.

this is the one to meet. What do you think of

:16:59.:17:05.

the show so far, Dillon? Let's go and meet some

:17:06.:17:08.

of the characters in this pantomime. Lesley Joseph, Duncan James,

:17:09.:17:12.

thank you for doing this for us. If you look at the set,

:17:13.:17:15.

which is absolutely glorious, but as an audience you see wonderful

:17:16.:17:20.

dancing, you see real comedy, you see magic happening,

:17:21.:17:26.

you get dragons going out of the audience, and as an artist

:17:27.:17:29.

you can pull the audience and, you can let them laugh,

:17:30.:17:33.

you can make them cry. And it is a wonderful

:17:34.:17:36.

theatrical experience, It must have had to change over

:17:37.:17:38.

the last so many years, though, because it has to become more

:17:39.:17:43.

relevant for people. There is so much on television,

:17:44.:17:46.

so much to do these days. But ours is quite

:17:47.:17:48.

traditional, isn't it? But what is really lovely also

:17:49.:17:50.

is some of the first time kids have actually had an opportunity to come

:17:51.:17:55.

out of the house and actually We are consumed their television

programmes, in front of the television, it's very

:17:59.:18:01.

difficult, especially, to drag kids So for a lot of them,

:18:02.:18:04.

this is their first And you know an awful

:18:05.:18:08.

lot about Devon. I grew up and did all my schooling

:18:09.:18:11.

down here, so I'm a local boy, I got all my school friends coming

:18:12.:18:17.

to see me during this run. Quite nice to be here?

:18:18.:18:28.

It is nice to be here, I'm spending Christmas where I used to live, and

:18:29.:18:33.

we are staying on the beautiful Plymouth Hoe. It is so stunning and

:18:34.:18:36.

beautiful here. We went out last night. We went to the Dolphin.

:18:37.:18:44.

Love all that. It was great to be among all the

:18:45.:18:48.

locals and felt really special. I have to ask you both, tricky

:18:49.:18:52.

question, being in Devon, jam or cream?

:18:53.:18:59.

Absolutely, cream and then jam. I'm the other way round. Jam first

:19:00.:19:06.

and then the cream. The Spotlight viewers will go mad.

:19:07.:19:11.

I'm not sure now. I'm nervous unless I said the wrong thing.

:19:12.:19:16.

Thank you so much for talking to us, we really appreciated.

:19:17.:19:21.

Fancy starting the cream tea debate all over again!

:19:22.:19:26.

Now for the latest in our series of visits on the steam train.

:19:27.:19:28.

Now it's time to take your seat on the Spotlight Express once more

:19:29.:19:31.

as we visit another of the region's festive steam trains.

:19:32.:19:33.

We're back in Cornwall tonight on the Bodmin

:19:34.:19:35.

The branch line was built in the late 1800s and runs close

:19:36.:19:39.

to the Lanhydrock Estate which is celebrating

:19:40.:19:41.

All aboard the Spotlight estate! -- express!

:19:42.:19:59.

We have been running this now for about 30 years, so in fact, you have

:20:00.:20:06.

got generations coming along, because I used to bring my children,

:20:07.:20:11.

and last Sunday my children brought their children.

:20:12.:20:18.

The rail line skirts the Lanhydrock estate, whose Victorian owners

:20:19.:20:27.

benefited when it was built. When it was determined that Boston Parkway

:20:28.:20:31.

was going to be the station, it effectively cut the town of --

:20:32.:20:36.

Bodmin. And it wasn't until the branch line was established between

:20:37.:20:41.

Ottoman Parkway and Baldwin town, -- Bodmin Parkway and Bodmin town. He

:20:42.:20:48.

extension to his private drive taken up to Bodmin Parkway, which was paid

for by the great Western Railway. Inside the house, all the trappings

of a well-to-do Victorian Christmas. Christmas was huge, and there are

:21:06.:21:14.

records of the family coming down from London or from Cambridgeshire

:21:15.:21:19.

to come down to have a proper Cornish Christmas.

happy, this one is redundant branch line now fully connected to

Christmas. -- once redundant. Well, Christmas is drawing ever

:21:47.:21:51.

closer, tonight is mine and Justin's last Spotlight together before

:21:52.:21:54.

the big day, so I thought it would be a good opportunity to

:21:55.:21:56.

catch up on all our seasonal fun. Knit and Pearl the Robins are here,

:21:57.:21:59.

as is Leigh the Christmas tree. There have been many fun festive

:22:00.:22:03.

moments over the last few weeks, including one which nearly

:22:04.:22:08.

caught us out! Now, you may think you know all

:22:09.:22:18.

there is to know about famous reindeer at Christmas, the red nose,

:22:19.:22:22.

the sleigh guiding, but you have not met Bertie from Somerset.

:22:23.:22:28.

With a tide of his ears he delivers a thank you gift, in the shape of a

:22:29.:22:31.

box of mince pies. There they go again! Bertie the blue nosed

:22:32.:22:38.

reindeer, he will be in Taunton on Friday for an event celebrating the

:22:39.:22:41.

work of local charities. Thank you! Anything else?

:22:42.:22:51.

We laughed at that, didn't we? He has been working hard for an aged

:22:52.:22:57.

charity in Somerset, and he has been travelling on the M5ever since the

:22:58.:23:03.

last week. And here he is! In the studio.

:23:04.:23:08.

I didn't know... ! A bit of a surprise.

:23:09.:23:14.

You go to his back end, because I have got a Christmas present for

:23:15.:23:21.

you. Do you ready? Are you ready? There is your Christmas present from

:23:22.:23:25.

me, just in. Merry Christmas. I genuinely did not know that was

:23:26.:23:28.

coming! We have been keeping it a secret

:23:29.:23:32.

from you all day. We thought we would cheer you up this Christmas

:23:33.:23:35.

will stop what do you think? What wisdom -- what present have you got?

:23:36.:23:46.

A chocolate log! Lord Dear. Bertie the blue nosed reindeer in

:23:47.:23:49.

the studio. And thank you and much to everyone

:23:50.:23:52.

who sent business cards and Christmas gifts -- Christmas cards.

:23:53.:23:59.

Thank you very much for remembering. Lots of people have written from all

:24:00.:24:03.

over the UK, expat who tune in to Spotlight from all over the country

:24:04.:24:08.

and Europe. Let's see what the weather is great belike for the few

:24:09.:24:16.

days. Looks like we're grey to have a mild

:24:17.:24:20.

and grey Christmas, because there is all cloud screaming in the Atlantic.

:24:21.:24:26.

Low-pressure arriving tomorrow, Christmas 2016 likely to be windy

:24:27.:24:32.

and mild. We do have a warning from the Met Office about the strength of

:24:33.:24:36.

wind for tomorrow. Before we get to Chris was, we could have costs of up

:24:37.:24:42.

to 50-60 mph. That area of low pressure has been given a name, it

:24:43.:24:48.

has been cold Barbara. It travels up towards Scotland and arrives through

:24:49.:24:51.

the day tomorrow. The strongest winds will be in the northern half

:24:52.:24:56.

of the country, but once this weather have -- front arrives, it

:24:57.:24:59.

brings heavy rain and lively gusts of wind. That moves through, and by

:25:00.:25:05.

the time we get to Christmas Eve, a blustery west, south West wind,

:25:06.:25:08.

relatively mild, briefly some sunshine, generally cloudy. Chris

:25:09.:25:13.

was day itself, no chance of anything wintry -- Christmas. We

:25:14.:25:19.

will have an unusually mild crisp as day. -- Christmas Day.

:25:20.:25:26.

We will see some of the strongest gusts of wind, but they will ease

:25:27.:25:31.

and become more westerly is that weather front goes through. The

:25:32.:25:35.

cloud and showers we have seen today will probably continue this evening

:25:36.:25:39.

and overnight tonight, but in between the showers we have had an

:25:40.:25:42.

awful lot of fine weather, which is nice, and some sunshine. Our

:25:43.:25:49.

cameraman enjoying lovely sunshine at this estuary. It has been quite a

:25:50.:25:55.

pleasant day, a good day to be out and about enjoying the fine weather.

:25:56.:25:58.

And the sunshine. It will be different tomorrow because of the

:25:59.:26:02.

strength of wind and the rain coming in. No chance of seeing those

:26:03.:26:08.

temperatures that could give us any frost, although temperatures tonight

:26:09.:26:11.

will fall, a lot of the showers will fade away, we will get clear skies

:26:12.:26:16.

later on tonight, so a touch of frost briefly by tomorrow morning.

:26:17.:26:20.

Temperatures starting the day between 2-4 . Briefly some sunshine

:26:21.:26:26.

in the morning, but quite quickly the clouds streaming in and the

:26:27.:26:31.

weather front arriving. Gusts could be 30, 40, even 60 mph in that rain

:26:32.:26:35.

band. It clears from the West later in the day, with a top temperature

:26:36.:26:40.

of 12-13 . There is the forecast for the Isles of Scilly. Windy with rain

:26:41.:26:45.

for daytime, then turning much drier as that weather front goes through.

:26:46.:26:54.

The times of high water... Big waves for surfers, and perhaps

:26:55.:27:01.

the cleanest surf will be along the north coast, because once the wind

:27:02.:27:04.

gets going, that is likely to be very messy indeed.

:27:05.:27:08.

The coastal waters forecast reflecting the strength of wind.

:27:09.:27:17.

Christmas eve is going to be blustery, rather cloudy, with a few

:27:18.:27:22.

showers, and Christmas Day, mild and breezy. Have a good evening.

:27:23.:27:27.

Thank you stop I usually know everything in the running order, but

:27:28.:27:33.

not this evening! Can't believe I managed to keep it a

:27:34.:27:38.

secret Alde! That all from us today. Have a wonderful Christmas, look

:27:39.:27:42.

forward to seeing you in the New Year. Happy Christmas, good night.
