Over the last hundred and 50 years, lots of people have given their

lives or at least been injured or wounded in support of the freedoms

:00:52.:00:55.

that we enjoy two-day as they do take these for granted. And even

visibility. Saint Peter Port at the top of the league.

:01:05.:01:17.

Could pregnant women to day be the key to the next-generation's hell?

:01:18.:01:30.

Evidence shows that health issues a child may have in later life could

be set at the very early stages of development so it could be that I

Now a new study in Jersey has been launched through the hospital to try

and help those at risk of undernourished babies.

:01:48.:01:49.

By measuring mass, we know whether legal Centre and is developing well

health can start from before Doctors are warning

of the importance of a mothers health before and during pregnancy,

:02:04.:02:06.

as it can have a lasting effect. All of its programming with regards

to insulin levels blood pressure and everything is set

:02:10.:02:16.

when the baby is inside the uterus so what happens then in adult life

:02:17.:02:19.

has a big impact because the baby can't respond because its programmed

:02:20.:02:22.

for a starvation situation so when it's not in a starvation

:02:37.:02:46.

and has volunteered to be part of the research,

:02:47.:02:50.

as she felt the information she got with her first

:02:51.:02:52.

pregancny was confusing. You can't have this,

:02:53.:02:56.

you can have this, you can't have this, you know cheeses,

:02:57.:02:59.

fish, shellfish So I really didn't enjoy it

:03:00.:03:00.

at all, whereas I think it got to the second,

:03:01.:03:10.

I was still a little bit like that but I tended to calm down throughout

:03:11.:03:14.

to the end of the pregnancy, third and fourth I kind of do

:03:15.:03:17.

what I automatically feel is right. And to get the right amount of data,

Urszula wants to hear from 400 woman from different ethnic

and if we can how we can produce or plan preventions,

preparing them for parenthood The States of Jersey has

:04:05.:04:06.

announced the funding in association with the NSPCC's

:04:07.:04:10.

Baby Steps programme. It helps future parents learn

:04:11.:04:12.

about caring for newborns as well as dealing with the stresses

:04:13.:04:14.

a baby can bring. The children's charity believes

the issue of Jersey Lifts. Chris Harrison has been talking to

:04:45.:04:47.

the Jersey Taxi Drivers Association about their frustration -

and they described the footage only footage, Ed shares one of the

:05:15.:05:19.

they weren't doing something about it because it is happening more

:05:20.:05:26.

often. -- Jersey Lifts. The at once police wanted to do about it. They

:05:27.:05:31.

said they are just waiting on a serious accident.

:05:32.:05:31.

It's punted as a cheap alternative to a taxi -

:05:32.:05:34.

a social media page where people can ask for a lift from strangers

:05:35.:05:37.

but despite its popularity, Jersey Lifts is unregulated

:05:38.:05:39.

It's been running for years and while the comment made

:05:40.:05:44.

by the police officers on camera has been described as unfortunate,

:05:45.:05:51.

the police admit they're struggling to tackle Jersey Lifts saying...

:05:52.:06:06.

The police have carried out previous investigations

:06:07.:06:10.

but for the registered and legal taxi drivers, more

:06:11.:06:12.

Only when they start making an example of these people and start

:06:13.:06:20.

prosecuting, in England, you can be fined up to ?5,000 if you cannot

have business as an unregistered taxi driver. It's not until they

prosecute someone and show the full weight of the law is brought down on

these people will they actually stop it. Jersey could get its first

the new facility called Evelina court, could be open by the end

:06:52.:06:54.

of next year. It will provide long term

:06:55.:06:57.

residential accomodation for adults with learning disabilities

:06:58.:06:59.

and the growing number of those We found three days situations where

we had residents who have needs, they have the way to run available

:07:10.:07:13.

that's then we have to reach out and resolve the problems for them.

:07:14.:07:16.

Without this facility, we should be adding to a growing population with

:07:17.:07:19.

need in regards to elderly care. The price of a driving licence

:07:20.:07:21.

in Jersey is increasing. The new charges that come

:07:22.:07:24.

into place on the first of May will see a six month provisional

:07:25.:07:27.

licence increasing by five pounds to ?20, whereas a full

:07:30.:07:31.

has gone up by ?10 to ?50. Gathering at the crack of dawn

to remember and reflect. That's how Australians

:07:39.:07:40.

and New Zealanders across the Channel Islands commemorated

:07:41.:07:42.

Anzac Day. One of the important

:07:43.:07:43.

occasions for countries, it marks the anniversary

:07:44.:07:45.

of when more than 11,000 antipodeans lost their lives

:07:46.:07:47.

during the First World War. Don or just before dawn was the last

:07:48.:08:11.

minute of peace is often that soldiers had in the First World War.

:08:12.:08:15.

Any changes, they had to stand just before dawn to be ready for attack.

:08:16.:08:19.

That is why we come together on dawn. Today marks the anniversary of

wounded in support of the freedoms we enjoy today. We do take these for

granted. They were very hard ones. Windy is part of an international

:09:05.:09:07.

community. We do have people here from very many parts of the world.

:09:08.:09:12.

Good evening. Art again arriving. Feeling chilly. Quite a bonus

football isn't just a kickabout in the park -

:12:35.:13:20.

it's an attempt to steer them away from drink and drugs

:13:21.:13:24.

and stop them fighting. PL Kicks is a nationwide

:13:25.:13:27.

community programme backed Since 2008, Plymouth Argyle has been

A centre which cares for unwanted Exmoor ponies

:15:26.:15:28.

and saves them from slaughter says it may have to close in

:15:29.:15:31.

The Exmoor Pony Centre is launching a public fund raising

:15:32.:15:35.

campaign and is warning that if it has to close ponies on the moor may

:15:36.:15:39.

If it weren't for this sanctuary, these Exmoor ponies would probably

:15:40.:15:51.

have ended up being slaughtered for horse meat. But now the future of

:15:52.:16:00.

this place is under threat as it struggles to make ends meet. It is

:16:01.:16:07.

critical at the moment because of a lack of funds. We are finding

:16:08.:16:11.

ourselves in a position where we will have two cores at the end of

:16:12.:16:14.

the summer if we can't find the extra income. The Domesday book has

:16:15.:16:21.

references to ponies on Exmoor at the 11th century. They have had a

:16:22.:16:26.

chequered history, apparently almost becoming extinct in World War II

:16:27.:16:29.

when soldiers used them for target practice. And it is the gun that

:16:30.:16:34.

probably would have been the feed for these ponies. The leaders who

:16:35.:16:40.

have no use for male falls often slaughtered them explore alternative

:16:41.:16:45.

home can be found. This centre on the edge of Exmoor has been that

:16:46.:16:50.

alternative home for around 300 ponies since it opened 11 years ago.

:16:51.:16:55.

Here the team them and move them on new owners. I adore them. Volunteers

who support the police say they fear for the future of unwanted Exmoor

:17:04.:17:06.

are poorly is that this place is forced to shut down. To see the

:17:07.:17:11.

ponies from falls grow into adults and go on and have a future, it is

:17:12.:17:19.

fantastic. There are no plans to kill these ponies, even if this

:17:20.:17:23.

place does cause. The centre says they will be taken care of somehow.

:17:24.:17:30.

But there will be no new intake. Survival of the next generation is

:17:31.:17:31.

uncertain. How you would feel about running

:17:32.:17:36.

16.64 miles every day, Well, that's what two Royal Marines

:17:37.:17:40.

from the South West are doing as part of the 1664

:17:41.:17:50.

Global Challenge. as the year the Royal Marines were

:17:51.:18:00.

formed. Today was Day 1, and they

:18:01.:18:03.

were setting off from We sent our reporter Heidi Davey

:18:04.:18:05.

along to meet the team. The all-important team fulfil before

:18:06.:18:16.

the challenge gets underway, but for these two corporals, today is the

:18:17.:18:20.

start of 100 consecutive days running a very precise 16.64 miles.

:18:21.:18:27.

Aiming to run at the right place, at a reasonable pace for endurance.

:18:28.:18:31.

Just been resting the last week or so, trying to stay injury free. You

:18:32.:18:37.

are feeling confident? Yes. I feel all day. I want to get Day one out

:18:38.:18:43.

of the way. I am going to take each day at a time. I don't think that

:18:44.:18:48.

far ahead. Every day just keep plodding along. What flew so I will

:18:49.:18:52.

get on until the end. Although getting across to the startling was

:18:53.:18:57.

their first hurdle. We have set off from the Mayflower steps, we are no

:18:58.:19:00.

en route to Torpoint for the starting line. Once on dry land it

:19:01.:19:07.

was time to start running. Left, Right, left, right. 1664, stuffing

to do with the beer, it is the Royal Marines were formed. -- it is

:19:19.:19:27.

nothing to do with the bear. Their journey will take them across

:19:28.:19:31.

the region over the next few days raising funds for the Royal Marines

:19:32.:19:32.

charity. At Exeter Chiefs they will run the

:19:33.:19:46.

match ball into the stadium on Saturday. After Sunday, they will

:19:47.:19:53.

start heading north before hopefully ending at Buckingham Palace in

:19:54.:19:57.

August. But tonight they will be enjoying a well earned rest.

:19:58.:20:04.

A very well earned rest by the look of it.

:20:05.:20:06.

Now, many artists spend years of hard work trying to make it

:20:07.:20:09.

But for one 16-year-old from Plymouth, it's

:20:10.:20:12.

Four months ago Izzie Anson sent this demo of herself singing

:20:13.:20:21.

to the Radio Devon programme BBC Introducing.

Well, since then Izzie has been chosen by BBC Radio

2's Jo Whiley to play Cheltenham Jazz Festival tomorrow.

:20:26.:20:36.

What an amazing voice. What is it about a jazz in particular that you

:20:37.:20:58.

like? I have always loved that. Growing up listening to Nina Simone,

:20:59.:21:03.

anyway nice, Ella Fitzgerald. Your voice sounds nicer -- your voice

:21:04.:21:13.

sounds older than your years. How did this southern road to

:21:14.:21:18.

stardom begin? Where did they pick up on your talents? BBC introducing

:21:19.:21:24.

picked up on my talent at the end of last year. I sent one of my tracks

:21:25.:21:32.

into ABC introducing and they played it on Round Table. And it got a good

:21:33.:21:38.

response which I was not expecting. And you have already recorded out in

:21:39.:21:41.

Nashville, how did that come about? Last year I was just putting covers

:21:42.:21:49.

up on Facebook and YouTube, and my dad knows someone who is a producer

:21:50.:21:55.

in national, and I didn't think he'd be interested, because I didn't

:21:56.:21:58.

think they were very good, and he messaged me, and said that they want

:21:59.:22:03.

to come out to National. But so that started. I went out and recorded the

:22:04.:22:10.

songs which are on my EP. You are currently juggling all of this with

:22:11.:22:16.

studying for GCSEs. How are you managing that workload? It is a

:22:17.:22:22.

lots. But my family are very supportive, helping me gets to all

:22:23.:22:28.

my gigs. It is a busy time of year for you. What do you hope to achieve

:22:29.:22:33.

in the future? Just writing music, that is all I really want to do. And

:22:34.:22:38.

this big opportunity tomorrow with the Cheltenham Festival, how are you

:22:39.:22:43.

viewing ahead of that? Very nervous but really excited. I really hope it

:22:44.:22:48.

goes well. Thank you. We look forward to hearing from you again at

:22:49.:22:54.

the end of the programme. Thank you. And before that let us get the

:22:55.:22:59.

weather forecast. There has been hailstorms, sleet, snow, freezing

:23:00.:23:05.

cold, so where better to put David Dunn on the roof?

:23:06.:23:09.

I am not coming up here again, it is freezing, but a smashing view. We

:23:10.:23:16.

are up on the roof. A lovely view of Plymouth Sound. Good visibility

:23:17.:23:21.

today. Visibility has been excellent because of the Arctic area, the

:23:22.:23:25.

clean air, not just here, but all around the course of Devon we have

:23:26.:23:31.

had good views. You can see the show workload in the

:23:32.:23:35.

distance. There have been showers, not every where, but some have been

:23:36.:23:41.

intense. Over high ground they have been falling as sleet, maybe even

:23:42.:23:46.
