I'm Charlie McArdle. Welcome to BBC Channel Islands.

:00:00.:00:00.

These are tonight's headlines: Calls for more affordable homes

:00:00.:00:09.

in Guernsey but private landlords are not happy.

:00:10.:00:15.

The prescription for health care in old and includes a formal apology

:00:16.:00:25.

for Doctor Rory Lyons. Due procedure was not followed and we apologise

:00:26.:00:28.

for the effect that had on Doctor Rory Lyons and the people of

:00:29.:00:29.

Alderney. Plus the activity boxes helping

:00:30.:00:32.

to improve care for the increasing And despite the low temperatures and

:00:33.:00:44.

frost across the islands in the last two days it hasn't felt too bad.

:00:45.:00:49.

That will change. Stronger winds later tomorrow and on Thursday, with

:00:50.:00:54.

a high wind chill. I will have all the details later in the programme.

:00:55.:01:12.

Better emergency midwifery services, more social work, and increasing

:01:13.:01:14.

clinicians skills are just some of the recommendations made

:01:15.:01:16.

by a Guernsey review into Alderney's health care.

:01:17.:01:18.

The independent report also highlights the importance of a full

:01:19.:01:21.

apology to be made to an Alderney doctor who was investigated for

:01:22.:01:23.

It's been almost two years since this police raid on a surgery

:01:24.:01:27.

in Alderney stunned people in the Channel Islands.

:01:28.:01:30.

Dr Rory Lyons was suspended while investigations were underway,

:01:31.:01:33.

but all cases against him were later dropped.

:01:34.:01:35.

But according to this latest independent review,

:01:36.:01:37.

the effects are still having a significant negative impact

:01:38.:01:39.

Among the report's 38 recommendations, one of them

:01:40.:01:45.

is that there should be a formal apology to Dr Lyons.

:01:46.:01:48.

It says there should be chemotherapy treatment available on-island.

:01:49.:01:51.

It also says there should be greater use of video conferencing

:01:52.:01:55.

which could halve the number of trips to Guernsey for treatment.

:01:56.:01:57.

And another recommendation says that making seatbelts compulsory

:01:58.:02:00.

The President of the Committee for Health and Social Care

:02:01.:02:06.

HSC totally accept the findings of this report at the time, which said

:02:07.:02:20.

that there were, in terms of the investigation, it was rushed, and

:02:21.:02:24.

due process was not followed. We apologise for the impact that out on

:02:25.:02:28.

a doctor Rory Lyons and the people of Alderney.

:02:29.:02:29.

The report's been welcomed by one of Alderney's senior politicians.

:02:30.:02:31.

Louis Jean says now's the time to ensure doctors

:02:32.:02:33.

They could come in and really work and assist Doctor Rory Lyons to get

:02:34.:02:45.

his practice open. It seems to me that that may be part of the reason

:02:46.:02:52.

why there is this lack of continuity in GPs, it isn't entirely the only

:02:53.:02:55.

answer but it is is certainly part of it.

:02:56.:02:56.

It's not clear how many of the 38 recommendations will be

:02:57.:02:58.

Whilst some savings could be made, half of the recommendations

:02:59.:03:02.

are predicted to cost taxpayers money.

:03:03.:03:04.

RBS International have announced they are closing Natwest branches

:03:05.:03:06.

The St Peters branch will close at the end of April,

:03:07.:03:12.

while the Alderney branch will shut in June.

:03:13.:03:15.

The banking company say the decision was based on usage

:03:16.:03:18.

Alderney customers can continue to use their Natwest account

:03:19.:03:23.

through online and mobile access but won't be able to pay in cash.

:03:24.:03:27.

It's thought the two Alderney employees will be made redundant.

:03:28.:03:32.

A teenager's been allegedly assaulted

:03:33.:03:34.

It's alleged the 15-year-old boy was attacked by two young people

:03:35.:03:39.

outside a takeaway shop on Union Street at 5.45pm yesterday.

:03:40.:03:42.

Police want to speak to the driver of a 4x4 who was shouted

:03:43.:03:46.

There's a public appeal to find the people responsible

:03:47.:03:55.

for the fly-tipping of asbestos in Jersey.

:03:56.:03:58.

Nine bin bags of the dangerous substance were dumped in a field

:03:59.:04:01.

The Environment Department says it's looking for witnesses because this

:04:02.:04:06.

It says ?5,000 of public money was spent getting

:04:07.:04:12.

From this incident there is no risk to public health and the mass has

:04:13.:04:26.

been cleared up by us as a contract. We would like people to contact us

:04:27.:04:30.

and let us know if they have any suspicions about asbestos that may

:04:31.:04:33.

have been in a building they were aware of or they have seen people

:04:34.:04:36.

carrying black bin liners into a building.

:04:37.:04:37.

The growth of the Guernsey Housing Association is stifling the private

:04:38.:04:39.

sector rental market, according to the island's

:04:40.:04:41.

The GHA says a shortage of land is its biggest challenge

:04:42.:04:45.

in trying to meet demand, but landlords argue that more

:04:46.:04:49.

affordable housing will put another nail in the coffin

:04:50.:04:51.

These are some of the newest properties in the Guernsey Housing

:04:52.:04:57.

Rodley Park accounts for five of the 54 homes

:04:58.:05:04.

There's huge demand for affordable housing in the island,

:05:05.:05:07.

and another 40 new builds are also in the pipeline.

:05:08.:05:13.

We have got a waiting list of just under 300 applicants of households.

:05:14.:05:21.

We are just at about 800 properties now, which we manage, red and

:05:22.:05:24.

partial ownership, and we have demolished about 350 properties of

:05:25.:05:30.

state housing estates that we have redeveloped so the overall net

:05:31.:05:31.

increase is about 450/15 years. Developments like this help people

:05:32.:05:35.

to get on the property ladder through partial ownership schemes

:05:36.:05:37.

but there are concerns that it's having a negative effect

:05:38.:05:40.

on the private sector. They have steadily taken the clients

:05:41.:05:46.

that traditionally come into the private sector and they have

:05:47.:05:51.

migrated to the Guernsey Housing Association, and it is no wonder

:05:52.:05:55.

they do that. However we in the private sector are not getting any

:05:56.:06:01.

breaks at all to keep us pace with what they are producing rather than

:06:02.:06:07.

catching up. We have no incentive to improve our properties, the

:06:08.:06:09.

insulation and so forth and over the past few years we have got reduced

:06:10.:06:16.

between five and 10% in the private sector of the older generation who

:06:17.:06:19.

are just packing it in putting their in other means.

:06:20.:06:20.

Private landlords claim their livelihoods are being stifled.

:06:21.:06:22.

While they can understand why people choose to move from private rentals

:06:23.:06:25.

to housing association properties, they simply want to be able

:06:26.:06:27.

Growers have criticised a delay in a government plan

:06:28.:06:40.

The Rural Economic Strategy looks at how local produce and the organic

:06:41.:06:44.

industry can be developed, and what subsidies

:06:45.:06:46.

It was due out in 2015, but the Economic Development

:06:47.:06:50.

Department says the delay was due to changing budgets,

:06:51.:06:53.

and it'll be published within the next week.

:06:54.:06:59.

A public inquiry is being held into the building

:07:00.:07:01.

of the new Les Quennevais school in Jersey.

:07:02.:07:03.

It's after the Environment Minister backed plans for the secondary

:07:04.:07:06.

school to be built on protected fields in St Brelade.

:07:07.:07:08.

The inquiry, at St Brelade Parish Hall, is expected

:07:09.:07:13.

You're watching the BBC in the Channel Islands.

:07:14.:07:17.

Later in Spotlight with Justin and Victoria:

:07:18.:07:19.

The Real Junk Food Project that's helping feed hundreds of people

:07:20.:07:21.

Health bosses at Jersey's General Hospital say they're seeing

:07:22.:07:30.

an increase in the amount of patients admitted onto wards

:07:31.:07:33.

So, to help nurses engage with their patients,

:07:34.:07:37.

they're trialling two activity boxes with games and puzzles.

:07:38.:07:40.

It's part of a wider strategy to improve care for patients

:07:41.:07:44.

with dementia as Jessica Banham reports.

:07:45.:07:54.

Sylvia Green has been on Beauport ward for a few weeks now.

:07:55.:07:59.

She's been using games from the activity boxes

:08:00.:08:01.

But Senior Sister Chantal Bellingall says the boxes are also helping them

:08:02.:08:10.

improve care for the increasing number of patients

:08:11.:08:12.

It is good to engage with them and get them involved with the nursing

:08:13.:08:19.

staff and our team and their family and relatives. It is very tactile to

:08:20.:08:24.

get involved in making jigsaws and jawing, the drawing of colouring is

:08:25.:08:27.

therapeutic and coming for them as well. What exactly is in these

:08:28.:08:32.

boxes? There are a variety of different activities including

:08:33.:08:36.

puzzles and crosswords and colouring in and quiz packs which would

:08:37.:08:39.

provide to clients on the ward. One example is this lovely puzzle that

:08:40.:08:44.

we have got which is a nice and easy Wyper Bull and clean puzzle which

:08:45.:08:45.

our clients into really enjoy. There are around 1,400 people living

:08:46.:08:47.

with dementia in Jersey. But it's thought less than half

:08:48.:08:51.

of those people have a diagnosis. Numbers are also likely to double

:08:52.:08:55.

in the next 25 years. Alongside the activity boxes,

:08:56.:08:57.

nurses have also made visiting They want to improve

:08:58.:09:01.

signage on the ward so they show pictures rather

:09:02.:09:10.

than just words. It is not just about the

:09:11.:09:16.

orthopaedics now, so many of our patients have dementia or other

:09:17.:09:19.

needs and by putting these things in place will make a difference to all

:09:20.:09:23.

of our patients, whether they are visually impaired or had hearing

:09:24.:09:26.

problems, it will be better for everybody.

:09:27.:09:29.

I was going to ask you later as there is somewhere I can buy them.

:09:30.:09:36.

It's becoming a regular morning ritual and I can't tell you how many

:09:37.:09:39.

David, is there any end to to these frosty mornings?

:09:40.:09:43.

I think so. Perhaps not necessarily the way we wanted to but a towel

:09:44.:09:52.

across the windscreen will save you a lot of de-icer! It looks like we

:09:53.:09:57.

will have more fine weather tomorrow morning. This was a Weather Watchers

:09:58.:10:02.

picture of the famous lighthouse. We will have more sunshine to start the

:10:03.:10:07.

day and another frost overnight tonight, so actually start and a dry

:10:08.:10:10.

day but more cloud in the second half of the Day and at the same time

:10:11.:10:14.

the breeze is picking up and that Breeze is going to be a cold wind.

:10:15.:10:21.

There is a cold pool of cold air heading our way. The high pressure

:10:22.:10:24.

is finally weakening somewhat and beginning to move out of the way.

:10:25.:10:28.

Very slow progress but gradually this area of low pressure will come

:10:29.:10:33.

closer. By the time it gets to us it will be weak but there is a squeeze

:10:34.:10:38.

in the isobars, they are starting to get close together which means more

:10:39.:10:41.

of a breeze for us and it means some quite lively wins by the time we get

:10:42.:10:46.

to Thursday. Cold winds coming out of Europe as well. With this weather

:10:47.:10:52.

front tantalisingly close, and eventually, as a weaker affair it

:10:53.:10:54.

brings more cloud and the risk of rain. Overnight we have clear sky

:10:55.:11:00.

again and it will be another cold night and another night with a

:11:01.:11:03.

widespread overnight frost. Temperatures down to zero. Tomorrow

:11:04.:11:07.

we start the day with a good deal of sunshine and quite quickly there

:11:08.:11:11.

will be more cloud coming in. It comes in from the south-east. By the

:11:12.:11:14.

end of the afternoon it is generally rather cloudy and it also becomes

:11:15.:11:20.

misty. Four or five is the maximum temperature. It will be a cold day

:11:21.:11:22.

and feel pretty miserable once we lose the sunshine. Clean waves for

:11:23.:11:37.

our surface. -- surfers. The coastal waters forecast. By the time we get

:11:38.:11:40.

to Thursday the wind is going to be quite strong. Coming in from the

:11:41.:11:45.

south-east, it means of raw feel to the day on Thursday, but milder by

:11:46.:11:49.

the weekend. Thank you. It looks as though we

:11:50.:11:53.

will have to batten down the hatches as the wind heads to the islands.

:11:54.:11:57.

That is all for now. I will be back just before 8pm and then again at

:11:58.:12:01.

10:45pm. Here is Justin and Victoria.

:12:02.:12:14.

and the Landmark in Ilfracombe went into administration yesterday.

:12:15.:12:17.

North Devon Council is blaming falling ticket sales

:12:18.:12:18.

It says it gave the trust more than ?300,000 this financial year.

:12:19.:12:26.

The doors are closed now but these campaigners want them back open, and

:12:27.:12:43.

soon. This woman performed that theatre in Barnstaple last week. I

:12:44.:12:47.

feel heartbroken by the news. It is so sad that it is all going to be

:12:48.:12:52.

gone and this makes people like me inspired and able to dream big and I

:12:53.:12:56.

don't want to play just another nightclub. This and the Landmark

:12:57.:13:04.

Theatre in Ilfracombe have gone into administration. There are calls for

:13:05.:13:08.

the local council to step in. They don't have the money, we understand

:13:09.:13:12.

that, but we believe there is a viable future for these theatres and

:13:13.:13:17.

as North Devon council owned theatre buildings, that we can come to a

:13:18.:13:20.

solution. We are pleading with the council to work with us and the

:13:21.:13:24.

administrator to find a way to get doors open again. The North Devon to

:13:25.:13:29.

distrust blamed falling sales and a cut in public subsidy from the local

:13:30.:13:36.

council for its financial problems. These closures leave the plough arts

:13:37.:13:39.

Centre in great Torrington as the last art centre for miles around.

:13:40.:13:44.

It's a rise of just ?9,000 a year in public funding. Many organisations

:13:45.:13:50.

have been on a journey of weaning themselves off public funding out of

:13:51.:13:53.

necessity and it is a journey that some have made more successfully

:13:54.:13:58.

than others. If you have got two big theatres with big overheads it is

:13:59.:14:01.

difficult to say that you will cover that from the box office. It was or

:14:02.:14:04.

was gone to need some sort of support. As a society we should be

:14:05.:14:08.

supporting the arts. If you go to other countries, they support the

:14:09.:14:14.

arts, phenomenally. The subsidy to support the favours from the castle

:14:15.:14:18.

was over ?300,000. The council says that it is facing financial pressure

:14:19.:14:23.

and needs to save money. It would not comment further whilst the

:14:24.:14:26.

administration process is ongoing, leaving campaigners waiting for a

:14:27.:14:28.

verdict on the theatres' future. What makes a good B?

:14:29.:14:33.

Stay with us to find out why this one has been voted the best

:14:34.:14:36.

in the world. The African silverbacks trying

:14:37.:14:38.

to cope with the Devon cold. We're looking forward to that one,

:14:39.:14:54.

aren't we? We both love cooking

:14:55.:14:58.

and try to use up leftovers. Well, a charity which cooks meals

:14:59.:15:00.

using food thrown out by businesses and supermarkets has been

:15:01.:15:03.

so successful, it's now expanding. The Real Junk Food Project set up

:15:04.:15:05.

in April last year and has fed hundreds of people in Plymouth

:15:06.:15:08.

and South East Cornwall. Well now it's looking to develop

:15:09.:15:11.

the idea and has launched a fundraising campaign

:15:12.:15:13.

for a permanent base. Emma Thomasson has been to see how

:15:14.:15:15.

it works Tucking in, but this is no ordinary

:15:16.:15:29.

lunch. Everything he was destined for the bin. How about asparagus

:15:30.:15:37.

soup? Beef ragout, with potatoes, for the big apple charlotte and

:15:38.:15:42.

custard. It has been made from food donated by supermarkets that they

:15:43.:15:44.

could not sell before its best before date. What we do is very

:15:45.:15:50.

inclusive, doesn't matter what the circumstances are, your welcome to

:15:51.:15:54.

eat with us, and when you pay you can pay with the money donation or

:15:55.:15:57.

you can pay with your time or skills. People volunteer, do some

:15:58.:16:01.

washing up, some deliveries, and there is an exchange in that way. It

:16:02.:16:06.

works really well. The one some salad or veg? Jese heads a team of

:16:07.:16:12.

volunteers going round Plymouth and Southeast or -- South East Cornwall,

:16:13.:16:15.

cooking. The food is prepared in her own kitchen then transported around

:16:16.:16:20.

churches, toddler groups and even their pub. But is it any good? Oh,

:16:21.:16:29.

yes, the meat is lovely and tender. Yes, everything was just wonderful.

:16:30.:16:32.

Me and my husband have always worked. And we struggle ourselves,

:16:33.:16:39.

but I make everything go round. I do not waste, I don't throw out, if I

:16:40.:16:44.

can use it I use it, and a lot of other people do at home as well. I

:16:45.:16:48.

was thinking about the meals that I do for my four-year-old boy and how

:16:49.:16:55.

much ends up being left at the end of the meal, sometimes four or five

:16:56.:16:59.

carats and you add that up and that is a lot of food wastage. It has

:17:00.:17:05.

changed my thinking today. And he is not alone. The project has been so

:17:06.:17:12.

popular, a second team is now working in Torpoint and Jesse is

:17:13.:17:19.

working to set up a permanent base near Liskeard with plans for Linton

:17:20.:17:23.

and Falmouth. The government says 8 million tonnes of food is wasted

:17:24.:17:27.

every year, which equates to ?16 billion simply being thrown in the

:17:28.:17:30.

bin. This project hopes the work it is doing, however small, will go

:17:31.:17:34.

some way towards tackling the problem. It is lovely. It did look

:17:35.:17:39.

good, didn't it? Now, we had images of Exeter's past

:17:40.:17:44.

earlier in the programme and here's another familiar sight

:17:45.:17:47.

of the South West from the archives. House after house on road after road

:17:48.:17:50.

offering bed and breakfast. But the traditional guest

:17:51.:17:53.

house has been changing. Many are still offering

:17:54.:17:55.

the full English breakfast, with customers expecting a more

:17:56.:17:57.

upmarket atmosphere. Tourism leaders say the move

:17:58.:18:04.

towards the boutique hotel has been key in driving the industry forward

:18:05.:18:06.

and one guest house in Dorset is now reaping the rewards with major

:18:07.:18:10.

recognition. It is a bitterly cold day in Dorset,

:18:11.:18:25.

but this place has the warmest welcome in the world. And that is

:18:26.:18:33.

official. We are writing down phone messages. Quite a few e-mails have

:18:34.:18:37.

come in. Clive and Lisa Orchard say that they are amazed to have been

:18:38.:18:42.

named the best B on the planet for the second time. It means a lot. It

:18:43.:18:47.

means that our guests have thanked us for their stay. We were just very

:18:48.:18:51.

shocked and very happy, obviously. What were you doing before you

:18:52.:18:56.

decided to move down to Dorset and open a B? We had a clothes shop in

:18:57.:19:04.

West wittering. I was working in data communications near Reading.

:19:05.:19:08.

Eventually we sold the shop and saw the Data Communications Bill 's less

:19:09.:19:11.

and we chose a bed and breakfast as being a nice lifestyle. This is a

:19:12.:19:17.

Thomas Hardy room. From the guest reviews on TripAdvisor it is clear

:19:18.:19:21.

that this B offers more than just clean sheets and pulling this. They

:19:22.:19:25.

think that Dorset is beautiful, and it is not difficult to share that

:19:26.:19:30.

with people. When I was six or seven, my sister taught me to swim

:19:31.:19:36.

in this area. So, for that reason, I think that is what makes it very

:19:37.:19:41.

personal to me. You won the award in 2014 and in 2017. For the two years

:19:42.:19:48.

in between, what went wrong? We relaxed! We genuinely just think of

:19:49.:19:56.

the B as an extension of our homes anyway. That was our commitment when

:19:57.:20:00.

we started, just to be ourselves and wanting people to share the area.

:20:01.:20:09.

Whatever their secret, it has sent Bindon Bottom to the top of the

:20:10.:20:11.

world's B destinations. Now the weather recently has been

:20:12.:20:14.

quite chilly with frosty nights and cold mornings and for many of us

:20:15.:20:17.

that means wrapping up or you could put your heating

:20:18.:20:21.

on! But if, like some

:20:22.:20:25.

of the animals at a Devon zoo, you're used to much warmer

:20:26.:20:29.

climates, how do you cope? Well the keepers at Paignton Zoo

:20:30.:20:33.

have been feeding them hot potatoes, as Spotlight's John Danks found

:20:34.:20:36.

out. These flamingos have the right idea,

:20:37.:20:43.

keeping their heads down during the icy weather. With temperatures not

:20:44.:20:48.

climbing much above zero in sheltered areas, some animosity

:20:49.:20:52.

turned their backs to the court. That is why at Paignton Zoo they are

:20:53.:20:54.

dishing out hot potatoes to the guerrillas. It's very cold at the

:20:55.:20:59.

moment and the guerrillas with the love hot potatoes. In weather like

:21:00.:21:02.

this it is nice for them to have something hot to warm them up a

:21:03.:21:06.

little bit. These western lowland gorillas are native to Africa.

:21:07.:21:12.

Weighing around 200 kilograms, the powerful primates are kings of the

:21:13.:21:16.

jungle, but here at Paignton Zoo... With the guerrillas and the

:21:17.:21:21.

orangutans, they are happy going outside when it is a bit colder. The

:21:22.:21:25.

guerrillas will have a nice, heated house outside, so in weather like

:21:26.:21:30.

this they tend to spend a lot more time inside. We try to get them out

:21:31.:21:35.

as much as possible to get some fresh air and sunshine, but it does

:21:36.:21:39.

when it is not so nice like this. In when it is not so nice like this. In

:21:40.:21:45.

the aviary, these noisy tropical birds are spending the winter

:21:46.:21:52.

indoors. No jacket spuds required. The birds are lucky, because they

:21:53.:21:56.

get shut away in nice, warm houses with heating on. It is the

:21:57.:21:59.

zookeepers who suffer the most because they come in in the morning

:22:00.:22:03.

and the padlocks are frozen, their hands are frozen, they have two melt

:22:04.:22:10.

ice, hosepipes are full of eyes, so they are far worse off than the

:22:11.:22:17.

birds. It is a year-round job for the keepers, making sure that the

:22:18.:22:21.

animals are well looked after. A hot potato to keep away the cold seems

:22:22.:22:26.

to be doing the job. Sadly for the guerrillas, there is no prospect of

:22:27.:22:34.

chips being served, just yet! -- Paignton Zoo -- gorillas. We've had

:22:35.:22:39.

lots of reaction to this story about commuting. Many of you have told us

:22:40.:22:44.

about your long journeys to work. Graham has e-mail to say, I commute

:22:45.:22:51.

48,000 miles every year, just passed my 500,000 miles mark, from

:22:52.:22:59.

Ivybridge to Bristol, daily. Martin says, I travelled from Dunster in

:23:00.:23:02.

Somerset to London for work every day. I now work from home which

:23:03.:23:08.

means I am permanently on my wife's nerves! I'm sure that is not true at

:23:09.:23:13.

all. Thank you for your e-mails, keep them coming in. It is time for

:23:14.:23:18.

the weather forecast. Is it jacket potato weather, David? There is some

:23:19.:23:21.

good news in the forecast. It is not quite as

:23:22.:23:27.

cold. It is slightly less cold. That is the best way to describe it. You

:23:28.:23:32.

have to wait until Friday before that happens. Tomorrow and Thursday

:23:33.:23:38.

is going to be pretty chilly. Tonight, another frosty night with

:23:39.:23:42.

some fog patches already forming. More of that come overnight. A cold

:23:43.:23:47.

wind tomorrow, with the breeze picking up steadily, helping to

:23:48.:23:52.

shift that mist and fog and again we will

:23:53.:23:55.

even more sunshine than we saw even more sunshine than we

:23:56.:23:57.

today, because we have this strip of today, because we have this strip of

:23:58.:24:02.

cloud covering much of the of England. That layer of cloud

:24:03.:24:03.

produced a few showers in North produced a few showers in North

:24:04.:24:07.

Devon and up into the south Wales. The main rain bearing cloud is out

:24:08.:24:11.

here to the west. This is a bit closer than it has been. It is

:24:12.:24:16.

high pressure begins to weaken. What high pressure begins to weaken. What

:24:17.:24:19.

is actually happening is we are squeezing the isobars, so there's

:24:20.:24:23.

more of a breeze developing. The breeze continuing to increase and,

:24:24.:24:28.

overnight tonight and into Thursday, we have a cold when coming in from

:24:29.:24:32.

the South East, head of this line-up patchy rain, and drawing in some

:24:33.:24:36.

very low temperatures from central Europe. They have had it bitterly

:24:37.:24:42.

cold over the last few days. And that cold air reaches us on

:24:43.:24:46.

Thursday. So although we have more of a breeze, if anything it will

:24:47.:24:51.

feel even called on Thursday. Friday is hit and miss but there's a

:24:52.:24:55.

weather front coming in on Friday that will change things. It will

:24:56.:24:59.

introduce slightly less cold air. It might introduce some outbreaks of

:25:00.:25:03.

rain as well, although the detail on that is elusive at the moment. That

:25:04.:25:08.

cold air comes across from the other side of the channel and through

:25:09.:25:13.

Thursday not only will be have low temperatures but with the strength

:25:14.:25:16.

of the wind it is going to feel bitterly cold. It will feel like -1,

:25:17.:25:22.

-2, so wrap up warm if you're out and about on Thursday. This layer of

:25:23.:25:28.

belt has produced some showers and clouded the skies over a good part

:25:29.:25:35.

of the South West. This was earlier today in Quantock. For the servers,

:25:36.:25:40.

the waves have been quite attractive. A pretty good day for

:25:41.:25:45.

many beaches over the last couple of days. The sea temperature at the

:25:46.:25:51.

moment is around nine, 10 degrees. The waves will increase over the

:25:52.:25:54.

next couple of days as you see the South West winds increasing. What's

:25:55.:26:03.

going out in the Atlantic that will help our surfers, producing some

:26:04.:26:08.

fairly sizeable waves. Tonight across the eastern parts of Somerset

:26:09.:26:12.

and Dorset, we will have thick, freezing fog. If you are travelling

:26:13.:26:16.

out of the region, if you're one of these long-distance commuters we

:26:17.:26:20.

have been talking about heading towards London, especially, you're

:26:21.:26:24.

going to run into some very thick fog and it is dangerous stuff,

:26:25.:26:28.

because it's also freezing fog. More of a breeze in the second half of

:26:29.:26:32.

the night, keeping the thick fog at bay. It will be a cold night with a

:26:33.:26:37.

range of temperatures. The fog is going to be patchy with temperatures

:26:38.:26:42.

anywhere from zero up to four Celsius. Tomorrow, Misty and foggy

:26:43.:26:47.

in the east, but foremost, a better day with sunshine with wind

:26:48.:26:48.

increasing. The breeze will continue increasing. The breeze will continue

:26:49.:26:57.

to increase in most of the day in Cornwall. And it will lift

:26:58.:27:03.

temperatures up to 9 degrees, but further east, temperatures not doing

:27:04.:27:07.

quite so well. That's the forecast for the Isles of Scilly, right and

:27:08.:27:12.

windy. And the times of high water... -- bright and windy.

:27:13.:27:21.

And the coastal waters forecast... That's all from me. Have a good

:27:22.:27:30.

evening. Looks like we're going to need more hot potatoes at the zoo on

:27:31.:27:35.

Thursday. That's all from us. We'll have an update at 10:30pm. From all

:27:36.:27:42.

of us here, have a good evening. Good night.

:27:43.:27:55.

You might get the impression that history is just a record

:27:56.:27:57.

Very often, the line between fact and fiction

:27:58.:28:03.

In this series, I'm exploring how three turning points in our history

:28:04.:28:10.

have been manipulated to become our greatest historical legends.

:28:11.:28:24.

I want to be entertained. Entertain me.

:28:25.:28:29.

It's the last chance to impress the judges.
