The missed signs of abuse that left a five week old girl

:00:00.:00:09.

A report finds hospital staff missed chances to intervene.

:00:10.:00:16.

Then a child is presented at a hospital with injuries like this

:00:17.:00:24.

over a period of time that is so short on any subject out.

:00:25.:00:25.

Comedian Rory McGrath admits harassing a married woman

:00:26.:00:27.

for 14 months, but he escapes prison.

:00:28.:00:30.

This has been a dark time, and thankfully it's now over. I wish to

:00:31.:00:36.

thank the judge and apologise to my wife.

:00:37.:00:37.

Getting the youth vote out - how the government's building

:00:38.:00:39.

And I'm here in Stevenage where astronaut Tim Peake is inspiring the

:00:40.:00:48.

next generation. First tonight the missed chances

:00:49.:00:57.

that could have prevented a couple inflicting catastrophic injuries

:00:58.:00:59.

on their five week old daughter. Baby Isabelle may never

:01:00.:01:03.

regain her sight and will have to be fed through a tube for the rest

:01:04.:01:06.

of her life. Last year her father

:01:07.:01:09.

Rocky Uzzell and mother But today a report said that if rib

:01:10.:01:12.

fractures had been spotted by Kettering Hospital,

:01:13.:01:17.

she could have been removed from their care.

:01:18.:01:20.

Here's Sally Chidzoy. They were parents who inflicted

:01:21.:01:26.

horrific injuries on their baby. Rocky Uzzell and Katherine Prigmore

:01:27.:01:28.

were seen to laugh at the hospital where five-week-old Isobel lay

:01:29.:01:31.

in a critical condition. Prigmore's seen on the right,

:01:32.:01:33.

who filmed her partner violently shaking and

:01:34.:01:36.

squeezing their daughter. This serious case review

:01:37.:01:40.

highlights major failings Baby Isabel was admitted here six

:01:41.:01:41.

times in five weeks. Yet not once did staff even consider

:01:42.:01:49.

that her parents could be Had they recognised them,

:01:50.:01:52.

they could have taken steps to have her removed from her parents

:01:53.:01:59.

to prevent more serious injury. The warning signs are all here,

:02:00.:02:03.

and touched on in the report, yet they were missed time

:02:04.:02:06.

and time again. On March 6th 2014, Isabel

:02:07.:02:10.

was admitted with leg pain. There was an x-ray,

:02:11.:02:13.

no injury was detected. Three days later, she was readmitted

:02:14.:02:17.

after turning blue. On March 12 she was in hospital

:02:18.:02:19.

again, vomiting and floppy. On March 20,

:02:20.:02:24.

she was back in hospital. She was limp.

:02:25.:02:27.

Injuries were finally identified. The next day,

:02:28.:02:30.

the parents were arrested. I think what is of particular

:02:31.:02:33.

importance is the repeat presentation to hospital over a very

:02:34.:02:35.

short period of time. That should bring an immediate

:02:36.:02:38.

child protection flag, and immediate child protection

:02:39.:02:41.

concern, really, The couple, who were jailed last

:02:42.:02:46.

December, lived in this Shocked neighbours say

:02:47.:02:51.

they rarely saw them. I knew something wasn't

:02:52.:02:56.

right, because they... I saw them out with a pushchair

:02:57.:02:59.

once, that was it. Unable to walk, talk,

:03:00.:03:02.

see and swallow, she is with foster parents, and is not expected to live

:03:03.:03:09.

beyond her teens. Kettering Hospital declines

:03:10.:03:12.

to give an interview, but said there was profound regret

:03:13.:03:13.

over the missed opportunities It said it has introduced

:03:14.:03:17.

improvements to procedures So, how was this allowed

:03:18.:03:20.

to happen to baby Isabelle? I asked head of the Northamptonshire

:03:21.:03:29.

Safeguarding Children There was not sufficient information

:03:30.:03:31.

sharing between agencies, although I have to stress that

:03:32.:03:39.

in itself wouldn't have necessarily More particularly, we are very

:03:40.:03:44.

concerned that the people at the accident and emergency

:03:45.:03:50.

facility were not serious enough -- curious enough

:03:51.:04:01.

about whether the reasons for admission to hospital

:04:02.:04:03.

were safeguarding linked or not. They were not curious

:04:04.:04:05.

enough about whether abuse One thing that stands out

:04:06.:04:07.

in the report is that an x-ray was done on the child's chest,

:04:08.:04:11.

and broken ribs were missed. I'm told by the medical experts that

:04:12.:04:13.

actually it's quite hard to tell in small babies whether a rib

:04:14.:04:18.

has broken or not, but the issue, as I understand it, and has come

:04:19.:04:22.

through in our report, is that the x-rays were not examined

:04:23.:04:24.

by a paediatric radiologist. If that examination had taken place

:04:25.:04:36.

as it should have been, it is very likely that the child,

:04:37.:04:41.

the baby wouldn't have been Very likely wouldn't have gone

:04:42.:04:44.

back to the parents, and this awful outcome would have

:04:45.:04:51.

very likely not have happened. How does this case compared

:04:52.:04:54.

to other safeguarding cases I would say this is one of the most

:04:55.:04:56.

serious cases I have personally dealt with both in terms

:04:57.:05:04.

of the severity of the injuries, and And also, in terms of the fact

:05:05.:05:08.

that the report does say that it is very likely that this

:05:09.:05:16.

could have been avoided. On a scale, I would say this

:05:17.:05:19.

is very serious indeed. And so what are you recommending

:05:20.:05:22.

to try and stop it happening again? There is a different arrangement

:05:23.:05:25.

now for the examination of x-rays in babies and young children,

:05:26.:05:28.

for example, and the sharing

:05:29.:05:36.

of information, particularly information about

:05:37.:05:37.

fathers has been really reinforced, and that is all

:05:38.:05:39.

backed by training programme for the relevant staff,

:05:40.:05:43.

and we as a board are also monitoring and auditing

:05:44.:05:46.

the impact of that. So are you 100% sure that if a baby

:05:47.:05:50.

was brought into the hospital today that it would be picked up

:05:51.:05:54.

and it would be acted upon? In safeguarding, there are no,

:05:55.:06:01.

not ever 100% guarantees. What we are assured as a board

:06:02.:06:04.

is that that curiosity that I had been talking about would be enacted,

:06:05.:06:07.

those questions will be asked, and safeguarding will be

:06:08.:06:11.

considered as a priority. The television entertainer

:06:12.:06:18.

and comedian Rory McGrath has been give a suspended ten week jail

:06:19.:06:20.

sentence today after admitting harassing

:06:21.:06:25.

a woman for 14 months. The court in Huntingdon was told

:06:26.:06:27.

McGrath and the married woman The harassment started

:06:28.:06:30.

when she ended the affair. Mike Cartwright's at

:06:31.:06:34.

Huntingdon magistrates' court now. Rory McGrath told the woman he

:06:35.:06:48.

harassed that this would make a wonderful court case. Well, in that

:06:49.:06:53.

court today, we heard in detail what he did. The actions he thought would

:06:54.:06:57.

remain private became very public indeed.

:06:58.:06:59.

Arriving at court, his wife by his side.

:07:00.:07:01.

Rory McGrath who the court was told pursued a course of conduct

:07:02.:07:04.

After harassing a married mother in her 40s for more than a year.

:07:05.:07:11.

the two having an affair for more than five years.

:07:12.:07:19.

The woman wanting to finish it after McGrath, she said,

:07:20.:07:22.

had become difficult and unpleasant company.

:07:23.:07:23.

The two had shared intimate messages and texts.

:07:24.:07:26.

Rory McGrath threatening to publish glossy images of her.

:07:27.:07:33.

The judge was told of his deep remorse.

:07:34.:07:38.

his solicitor spoke on McGrath's behalf.

:07:39.:07:42.

This has been a dark time, and thankfully it is now over.

:07:43.:07:45.

I wish to thank the judge, and apologise to my wife.

:07:46.:07:52.

And family, and thank them for their incredible support

:07:53.:07:54.

In a Cambridge Park, Rory McGrath tailed the woman as she went

:07:55.:08:03.

He contacted her husband and her new partner.

:08:04.:08:09.

Police say harassment cases are on the rise,

:08:10.:08:13.

encouraging victims to come forward.

:08:14.:08:15.

I would urge them to pick up the phone, ring us, tell us.

:08:16.:08:18.

Call the police, we can help you, we can put you in touch with other

:08:19.:08:24.

agencies and support services that can help you in both the short-term

:08:25.:08:29.

On TV from the 90s, he became a household name.

:08:30.:08:37.

His behaviour, likened to a midlife crisis.

:08:38.:08:39.

His actions described as bizarre and increasingly desperate.

:08:40.:08:47.

In sentencing, the judge told McGraw it was a persistent controlled

:08:48.:08:53.

imposition of yourself on the victim and those close to her. He was also

:08:54.:08:59.

ordered to pay ?200 in costs and a five-year restraining order was

:09:00.:09:00.

imposed. In just over three months voters

:09:01.:09:02.

in Cambridgeshire will go to the polls to choose the

:09:03.:09:05.

county's first ever elected mayor. And one of the first tests

:09:06.:09:09.

for the new role will be how many people turn out to vote

:09:10.:09:12.

in May's election. So, today a government

:09:13.:09:14.

minister was in the county, hearing ideas from young people

:09:15.:09:16.

about how to get as many people Our political reporter

:09:17.:09:19.

Tom Barton has the details. Our political reporter

:09:20.:09:21.

Tom Barton has the details. Back to the classroom to hear how

:09:22.:09:34.

sixth formers think young people can be encouraged to register to vote.

:09:35.:09:37.

The Minister for the institution was at long road College in Cambridge

:09:38.:09:43.

today. At the top of the agenda, the election of a mayor for

:09:44.:09:46.

Cambridgeshire this May. Do you believe that there is a worry that

:09:47.:09:50.

turnout will be lower a bit like in the police and crime commission is

:09:51.:09:54.

election? We look at these new established position such as the

:09:55.:09:58.

combined mayoral authority. We need to make sure that people are aware

:09:59.:10:02.

that this is taking place on the 4th of May this year. So what do these

:10:03.:10:06.

politics students think of this new part of the political system? I do

:10:07.:10:14.

think you can have one person to represent thousands of people. If it

:10:15.:10:19.

represents amateur and the surrounding areas then it will be a

:10:20.:10:23.

good point coming from that. I don't think you can represent

:10:24.:10:28.

Cambridgeshire as one. Hopefully the mayor will be in touch with his

:10:29.:10:31.

local community and know exactly what it needs. We now know who five

:10:32.:10:35.

of the candidates for the election will be. Ukip have selected Paul

:10:36.:10:41.

Bollen. But casual is representing liberal Democrats. Peace door is

:10:42.:10:45.

standing as an independent. The Green candidate will be Julie

:10:46.:10:50.

Howell, and the Conservatives selected last week James Palmer.

:10:51.:10:56.

Labour are currently voting to due to their candidate will be. Whoever

:10:57.:10:59.

wins the election here in Cambridge in May will get a significant range

:11:00.:11:03.

of new powers over training, over where new housing is built, and

:11:04.:11:07.

crucially over the county public transport network, but while all of

:11:08.:11:10.

that power and significant money is coming here to Cambridgeshire, the

:11:11.:11:16.

same is not true elsewhere in our region. This is, you say, a good

:11:17.:11:20.

thing for Cambridgeshire, but for other parts of our region,

:11:21.:11:24.

Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Northamptonshire, there is a mayor,

:11:25.:11:26.

there is no new powers, there is no new money. This is an inconsistent

:11:27.:11:33.

policy, is it couldn't write? This is crucial to be bottom up. We need

:11:34.:11:38.

to come forward with workable arousal for devolving housing

:11:39.:11:42.

budgets, transport budgets, that we will list going forward, but it has

:11:43.:11:46.

DBE for local areas to be able to decide how to do its best. In

:11:47.:11:50.

Cambridgeshire the countdown has started. Some of these students will

:11:51.:11:53.

be among those choosing the counties that ever electro mayor. At first

:11:54.:11:57.

ever elected mayor. Local elections traditionally get

:11:58.:11:59.

much lower turnouts than general elections....is there any sense

:12:00.:12:02.

that this might be different ? Welcome you heard in my report a

:12:03.:12:10.

student asking the minister about the police and crime commission

:12:11.:12:12.

elections and went those elections were first held back in 2012, you

:12:13.:12:16.

saw the lowest ever turnout, 12% in some places, of people bothering to

:12:17.:12:21.

vote. And even the second time those elections were held back in 2015,

:12:22.:12:27.

only about 30% of people voted, even those at those elections were held

:12:28.:12:29.

on the same day as the general election. Council turnout is often

:12:30.:12:36.

quite low as well, regularly below 15% that are 50%. There is a risk

:12:37.:12:40.

can ahead, that the new mayoral role could struggle to persuade people to

:12:41.:12:44.

turn out and vote, but this mayor is a big job with a big budget and a

:12:45.:12:50.

lot of response ability and I think the minister's visit today shows how

:12:51.:12:53.

did the government is that you will have decent turnout at this

:12:54.:12:57.

election. So people in Cambridge are actually getting a vote on it all.

:12:58.:13:01.

What about the rest of the region? Elsewhere in the region, at the

:13:02.:13:05.

moment there aren't any serious discussions going on, there were

:13:06.:13:10.

proposals kicking around for both Bedfordshire and for part of

:13:11.:13:13.

Northamptonshire. They, though, came to nothing, and there is a plan for

:13:14.:13:18.

devolution in Norfolk and Suffolk, very similar to the camera deal

:13:19.:13:22.

which collapsed last year, but the minister as he saw there said that

:13:23.:13:25.

the government is open to suggestions, so it is possible that

:13:26.:13:27.

we could see more mayors elsewhere in our region in the future. Tom,

:13:28.:13:32.

thanks very much. Police are appealing

:13:33.:13:34.

for witnesses after a car was stolen in Cambridgeshire

:13:35.:13:36.

with a baby inside. Police have released CCTV video

:13:37.:13:38.

of the incident in Kimbolton A passenger pulled up in a vehicle

:13:39.:13:40.

near the mother's car which she'd left parked outside a shop

:13:41.:13:46.

with the baby strapped in the back. The man jumped in and

:13:47.:13:49.

drove the vehicle away. He abandoned the car a hundred yards

:13:50.:13:51.

away on London Road. Cambridgeshire police have raised

:13:52.:13:57.

concern over CCTV footage showing a near miss incident between a van

:13:58.:13:59.

and woman walking her two horses. The video, which has been watched

:14:00.:14:02.

more than 400 times, was taken on Red Fen Road

:14:03.:14:05.

in Little Thetford Police are warning drivers to take

:14:06.:14:07.

extra care on country roads and to always approach a horse

:14:08.:14:14.

at less than 15 miles per hour. The Cambridge MP Daniel Zeichner has

:14:15.:14:17.

become the first member of Jeremy Corbyn's front-bench team

:14:18.:14:20.

to say he will defy an order to vote The Labour MP, whose constituency

:14:21.:14:23.

voted overwhelmingly in favour of Remain,

:14:24.:14:26.

said he will respect That's all from me -

:14:27.:14:28.

I'm back at 10.30 with more on our top stories -

:14:29.:14:35.

but for now here's Stewart and Susie And the moment this Essex

:14:36.:14:44.

photographer thought he'd never see. Around 20 lucky children had a day

:14:45.:14:57.

they'll never forget today. They met the astronaut Tim Peake

:14:58.:15:06.

in Stevenage at a new educational centre aimed at inspiring

:15:07.:15:09.

the scientists of the future and today, we were told he's

:15:10.:15:12.

going back into space sometime But in Stevenage, it was all

:15:13.:15:15.

about getting young hands For a man who was blasted into

:15:16.:15:37.

space, it was a suitably out of this world opening. Strand putting us

:15:38.:15:42.

from Stevenage to Mars. This testing yard at the heart of the interactive

:15:43.:15:48.

centre, all about inspiring the next generation. It is all hands on with

:15:49.:15:52.

a teacher with unique qualifications. It's really exciting

:15:53.:16:00.

meeting him and everything is very fun to play with. He is a bit famous

:16:01.:16:07.

so that is really exciting. I asked him about the Northern lights and he

:16:08.:16:15.

sought them about to authorise -- two or three times a week. What more

:16:16.:16:23.

expiring for these children than to be standing next to someone who has

:16:24.:16:30.

been into orbit, looking out to the future of space exploration. If you

:16:31.:16:34.

can get them excited about science at that early age, that is when they

:16:35.:16:39.

will make the decision to study those and we can grow our workforce

:16:40.:16:43.

for the future, which will be of huge benefit to the UK. And there

:16:44.:16:50.

was a nod to today's news that he is set to return to orbit. Space is a

:16:51.:16:55.

wonderful place to live and work. Every astronaut would love to get

:16:56.:17:00.

back up there. The Airbus Centre will be won by North Hertfordshire

:17:01.:17:11.

College. Access to live space research and extraordinary asset. It

:17:12.:17:14.

is rare to see a business open the doors of its most incredible

:17:15.:17:16.

projects to help inspire the next generation. These would-be

:17:17.:17:21.

scientists filling an important void. For our burgeoning industry in

:17:22.:17:26.

the UK which is the right thing we need a good strong pipeline of our

:17:27.:17:30.

own engineers and scientists and technicians coming through, and

:17:31.:17:35.

these sort of programmes are an excellent way to create that talent

:17:36.:17:41.

for the future. When he was a boy, Tim Peake dreams of being a pilot. A

:17:42.:17:45.

message to these youngsters, anything is possible.

:17:46.:17:54.

When the national living wage was brought in last year,

:17:55.:17:57.

there was a warning that it would have an effect on care

:17:58.:18:00.

there's evidence that it's forced up the cost of care

:18:01.:18:04.

and been a factor in some homes closing.

:18:05.:18:06.

The living wage came in last April and will go up by 30 pence an hour

:18:07.:18:10.

One nursing home in Essex has already put up its weekly charge

:18:11.:18:15.

to more than ?1,000 to pay for the increase in the cost

:18:16.:18:19.

This from our business correspondent Richard Bond.

:18:20.:18:28.

Rising wages are always good for morale and when the living

:18:29.:18:31.

or minimum wage rises in April, many of the 80 staff at this nursing

:18:32.:18:35.

Lucy Young works in the kitchen and is chuffed by the prospect

:18:36.:18:42.

I enjoy working here, but getting more money would be brilliant.

:18:43.:18:50.

Cheviot nursing home has 31 residents and is

:18:51.:18:53.

It's run on a not-for-profit basis, but as wages rise, it

:18:54.:18:59.

A year ago, the price of a new bed place here was ?939 a week.

:19:00.:19:08.

That has had to rise this year to ?1,036,

:19:09.:19:13.

an increase of 10% and the boss says that is down to the living wage.

:19:14.:19:20.

The national living wage has gone up by 11.5% in the last two years,

:19:21.:19:23.

so it has had an impact on the amount we charge people.

:19:24.:19:26.

I'm sorry about that, because it must sound

:19:27.:19:29.

like an enormous amount of money if you are in the position that

:19:30.:19:33.

you are looking for care for someone you love.

:19:34.:19:37.

Yes, and believe me, we are not making a profit.

:19:38.:19:41.

The strain of higher fees falls on people like Ken.

:19:42.:19:45.

His wife Maureen has been here for 18 months

:19:46.:19:48.

She needs round-the-clock care, but it's hard for the couple to pay

:19:49.:19:54.

the fees with interest rates on savings on the floor.

:19:55.:19:58.

If you have made sensible plans for retirement and relying

:19:59.:20:02.

on and investment income and the income from the investments

:20:03.:20:06.

drops to virtually zero and yet your commitments continue

:20:07.:20:12.

to rise, I cannot see anybody being in a position where they can

:20:13.:20:17.

It's part of a charity and has the resources to survive,

:20:18.:20:26.

but many smaller homes may not be so lucky.

:20:27.:20:29.

Everyone likes the idea of higher pay, it's just footing the bill

:20:30.:20:33.

The cost of caring for the elderly is high and rising, and those people

:20:34.:20:41.

paying the full cost themselves are actually subsidising

:20:42.:20:43.

Most homes are a mixture of people who pay for themselves and those

:20:44.:20:56.

whose care is paid for by councils. The cost is going up and councils

:20:57.:21:01.

have been unwilling or unable to pay the full increases, so we have been

:21:02.:21:07.

in this situation for some years were bills for Private people have

:21:08.:21:12.

been rising at a faster rate than for councils. It has reached a point

:21:13.:21:17.

where each private residence is subsidising each publicly funded

:21:18.:21:23.

resident to the tune of up to ?8,000 a year and clearly the increases in

:21:24.:21:27.

the living wage are going to add to that number and it's a situation

:21:28.:21:31.

that many argue is unfair and unsustainable.

Norfolk's Alfie Hewett has made another major tennis final.

He'll play against his British doubles partner

This region has another World Champion.

Ellen Falkner from Cambridgeshire in the final at Hopton

:22:02.:22:09.

She first won the title three years ago,

making her the youngest ever champion.

:22:13.:22:20.

Coming back here every year has been an absolute pleasure. This is the

:22:21.:22:28.

start of the year, could not be a better start. It was an incredible

:22:29.:22:34.

fame and to be up against Alan, it is what a lot of people would have

:22:35.:22:40.

asked for. I am a bit lost for words but rather than talk about my

:22:41.:22:44.

performance, I would rather talk about Catherine and say well done,

:22:45.:22:47.

well played and enjoy the moment. If you saw Winterwatch last night,

:22:48.:22:50.

you'll have seen the Wind in the Willows character Ratty

:22:51.:22:53.

as you've never seen him before. The remarkable wildlife

:22:54.:22:55.

pictures were shot in Essex They were taken by local Film

:22:56.:22:59.

maker and photographer it took a lot of time

:23:00.:23:02.

and a lot of patience, we thought you'd like

:23:03.:23:07.

to see them again. We're on the River Colne,

:23:08.:23:16.

it's a chalk stream. I knew that it was a special site

:23:17.:23:19.

when we first arrived here. A lot of people walk past this place

:23:20.:23:22.

and don't understand Spend a few minutes,

:23:23.:23:25.

observe and it comes to you. The voles are fairly

:23:26.:23:38.

nervous and you've got to be incredibly still,

:23:39.:23:40.

so you are freezing and being very cold in the water, but just don't

:23:41.:23:45.

move about and as time goes by and you do more days of it,

:23:46.:23:48.

they'll become more relaxed and then Sitting right in front of you,

:23:49.:23:51.

you know, chewing away, they are always here,

:23:52.:23:59.

every single day, but some of those special shots you need,

:24:00.:24:02.

they happen just once and you've got One of the most satisfying things

:24:03.:24:05.

is, because we have this beautiful chalk stream,

:24:06.:24:09.

you can see these little silver bullets which are the water voles

:24:10.:24:12.

underwater with the air trapped The life of the water vole is very

:24:13.:24:15.

short, most of them don't get very far into a second year,

:24:16.:24:21.

so a huge steep learning curve. On first coming to the site really,

:24:22.:24:25.

it was this idea that possibly, possibly we had caught water voles

:24:26.:24:29.

that were climbing trees. The evidence on the tree really most

:24:30.:24:34.

people would put it down to squirrels and I think

:24:35.:24:38.

it was worth spending some time, and then they started to climb

:24:39.:24:44.

and they were going up along the branches and I think

:24:45.:24:47.

they were probably six I thought that was

:24:48.:24:49.

quite interesting. Maybe not so steady on their feet

:24:50.:24:53.

and then to my commencement they just kept climbing

:24:54.:24:56.

and climbing and climbing. I don't know what the difference

:24:57.:25:04.

was between bark at the bottom and the bark at the top,

:25:05.:25:07.

but they just like to go higher. And the last programme in this

:25:08.:25:19.

season of Winterwatch is on BBC Two It was very cold today. Yes, we have

:25:20.:25:34.

all been complaining about the cold today. These were our top

:25:35.:25:41.

temperatures. Some places not getting higher than minus two

:25:42.:25:45.

Celsius and then factor in the wind-chill, it felt colder. Another

:25:46.:25:50.

cold night on the way. Not many photographs today because not many

:25:51.:25:58.

braved the outdoors to take them. Grey and overcast through much of

:25:59.:26:03.

the day but just as the sunset, the glimpse of a blue sky. Over much of

:26:04.:26:09.

the region there will be clear skies developing, so another sharp

:26:10.:26:13.

tonight. It looks as though many of us will get down to minus two

:26:14.:26:18.

Celsius but you can see on the map, a bit more cloud coming to the south

:26:19.:26:24.

by the end of the night and the possibility of light sleet or snow

:26:25.:26:30.

into counties like Essex. Gradually tomorrow we will see something

:26:31.:26:35.

milder coming our way. Although it will be a cold start to Friday, with

:26:36.:26:42.

a widespread frost, it will recover. This weather feature heading

:26:43.:26:46.

northwards through the morning. A very light covering of sleet or

:26:47.:26:51.

snow, not expected to settle. It clears the way. The middle part of

:26:52.:26:56.

the day dry and bright and then it tends to cloud over again.

:26:57.:27:01.

Temperatures around four or 5 degrees but by the evening, we could

:27:02.:27:06.

be up at around seven or 8 degrees as that milder air works its way

:27:07.:27:11.

northwards. We still have the chance of patchy rain arriving by the end

:27:12.:27:16.

of the day and overnight, and then we're into an unsettled weekend.

:27:17.:27:22.

There is a bit of uncertainty about this weather feature but it looks as

:27:23.:27:26.

though it will bring us strong winds, cloudy at times with the

:27:27.:27:34.

chance of rain and shall this. I had this dream that we were going

:27:35.:27:38.

upstairs and the boss said, tonight, we will go somewhere warm to present

:27:39.:27:43.

the programme. Don't think it will come true. Good night.

Einstein replaced Newton's theory of universal gravitation

:27:59.:28:01.

with a more accurate theory - general relativity.

So, why's my apple falling? Well, it's not.

:28:05.:28:07.

It is the ground that accelerates up to meet the apple.

:28:08.:28:11.

So that's why the chair that I'm sitting on now

:28:12.:28:13.

that actually feels as if it's accelerating up

:28:14.:28:16.

It's really changed my relationship with this chair. Mm-hm.
