Hello and welcome to Tuesday's Look North.

:00:00.:00:00.

In tonight's headlines: Medical marvels - the cancer survivors

:00:00.:00:00.

who are living proof of a remarkable clinical trial.

:00:00.:00:15.

Think I think I just thought there isn't another option. 17 years

:00:16.:00:20.

later, it never occurred to me I would still be alive.

:00:21.:00:22.

Tall story - he was banned for standing up while driving,

:00:23.:00:25.

but this 6ft 7 driver claimed he was sitting down.

:00:26.:00:27.

How a steep hike in rural business rates could force this

:00:28.:00:30.

And, Toon on film - a special report on the North East's

:00:31.:00:35.

In football, a new signing for Sunderland, but the top striker

:00:36.:00:41.

from their ladies team is on the move.

:00:42.:00:43.

And, we look at plans for a major new sports ground

:00:44.:00:46.

17 years ago, a group of patients with a rare form of blood cancer

:00:47.:01:05.

They decided to take part in a clinical trial in Newcastle

:01:06.:01:10.

and now many have lived to see children grow up and

:01:11.:01:13.

Remarkably, some are now thought to be cured -

:01:14.:01:19.

something doctors never thought possible.

:01:20.:01:21.

The long term results of the trial have just been accepted

:01:22.:01:24.

for publication and the patients have been speaking

:01:25.:01:26.

Time with family is something Jean Boyd never takes for granted.

:01:27.:01:35.

Diagnosed with chronic myloid leukaemia 21 years ago,

:01:36.:01:38.

she was told she had just a few years to live.

:01:39.:01:43.

She was offered a place on a clinical trial in the year 2000.

:01:44.:01:46.

I think I just thought there isn't another option, really.

:01:47.:01:52.

I think, 17 years later, it never occurred to me

:01:53.:01:54.

It never occurred to me I would see my family grow up.

:01:55.:01:59.

I thought by 50 I would be dead, so I am thrilled.

:02:00.:02:06.

It makes you realise that every single day you have almost been

:02:07.:02:08.

You know, we could have grown up very differently.

:02:09.:02:13.

He could have grown up without seeing his grandmother.

:02:14.:02:15.

The long term results of the study, which Newcastle doctors helped

:02:16.:02:22.

lead, have just been accepted for publication.

:02:23.:02:25.

This trial has really led to a complete change

:02:26.:02:28.

This class of drugs, which are TKIs, there are now about 30 or 40

:02:29.:02:35.

being used to treat anything from lung cancer to

:02:36.:02:37.

When the trial got underway in the year 2000, doctors

:02:38.:02:43.

were hopeful they'd be able to extend patients' lives,

:02:44.:02:46.

but what they didn't foresee was that some

:02:47.:02:49.

Like Margaret, the very first patient on the trial.

:02:50.:02:57.

I had a brother who had died, and even if he had been alive

:02:58.:03:00.

and been a match, I would have been too old to have a bone

:03:01.:03:03.

I would have danced with the devil to have extra time.

:03:04.:03:07.

I have seen seven grandchildren being born.

:03:08.:03:12.

I can't believe I would have lasted for 17 years,

:03:13.:03:15.

and that the disease would have gone.

:03:16.:03:18.

Now the Freeman Hospital is involved in a follow-up study where, so far,

:03:19.:03:22.

more than 90% of the patients have shown no evidence of relapsing

:03:23.:03:25.

a year after reducing their dosage, with some coming off

:03:26.:03:28.

Up to half of the patients don't need to remain on the drug,

:03:29.:03:36.

and therefore we are stopping the drug for patients

:03:37.:03:40.

The patient loses the side effects, the NHS loses the drug bill.

:03:41.:03:47.

Since the year 2000, Newcastle hospitals have been

:03:48.:03:50.

involved in more than 400 cancer treatment trials, featuring more

:03:51.:03:52.

than 11,000 of their patients - something doctors here

:03:53.:03:54.

Without research, half the patients with this disease would have

:03:55.:04:02.

died after five years, but now they have a normal life span.

:04:03.:04:05.

So it is painful and expensive to do research, it takes a lot of time,

:04:06.:04:09.

I feel lucky, very blessed to have been in Newcastle at a time

:04:10.:04:15.

For the most part, on the drugs I've been on, within a few months

:04:16.:04:22.

Three men from Carlisle have been banned from all football grounds

:04:23.:04:46.

for their part in a brawl with stewards at a match

:04:47.:04:48.

between Carlisle and Hartlepool last October.

:04:49.:04:50.

Magistrates heard that trouble flared when Carlisle scored and fans

:04:51.:04:52.

Luke Hodgson, who's 18, Stephen Neaves, who's 25

:04:53.:04:55.

and Carl Swan who's 24, were banned from football

:04:56.:04:57.

A 56-year-old grandfather escaped a ban, despite throwing a punch.

:04:58.:05:08.

Look North has learned health managers who are closing

:05:09.:05:10.

Hartlepool Hospital's licensed fertility unit rejected a bid

:05:11.:05:12.

from a company that's already run fertility services there.

:05:13.:05:15.

Earlier this month, the local Clinical Commissioning Group

:05:16.:05:18.

announced that licensed fertility treatment will end, meaning

:05:19.:05:21.

patients will have to travel as far as Newcastle.

:05:22.:05:24.

Managers said they couldn't find a new organisation to run

:05:25.:05:31.

the service, but they'd already rejected a bid from a firm running

:05:32.:05:34.

Health managers wanted to close car people's fertility unit last year.

:05:35.:05:47.

At an emotional meeting last summer it was saved. Now those same

:05:48.:05:52.

managers say licensed fertility treatment here must end. With all

:05:53.:05:56.

those twists and turns it must be hard for local patients to keep up

:05:57.:06:00.

with what is happening. But the local clinical commissioning group

:06:01.:06:04.

said they had a limited response from organisations that actually

:06:05.:06:06.

wanted to run the fertility services here. Quality standards were not met

:06:07.:06:13.

either. But we have learned that one organisation that was bidding to run

:06:14.:06:15.

services here has actually been running some fertility services at

:06:16.:06:21.

this hospital for several months. It was what the council had to say

:06:22.:06:24.

about their concerns earlier this month. I am extremely angry. Right

:06:25.:06:31.

back in October, we were contacted by some interested parties who were

:06:32.:06:35.

finding it extremely difficult to get the information that they

:06:36.:06:39.

required to put the bits together. We now know who that interested

:06:40.:06:46.

party was. This video is from the care fertility group. They have 15

:06:47.:06:51.

clinics up and down Britain, and were already supporting services in

:06:52.:06:55.

Hartlepool. The local clinical commissioning group decided they did

:06:56.:06:58.

not pass muster in the bidding process, which means people like

:06:59.:07:02.

Jodie, waiting for licensed fertility treatment for six years,

:07:03.:07:06.

cannot have it in Hartlepool. The top and bottom of it is I have to

:07:07.:07:11.

have fertility treatment to have children, and as the years go on and

:07:12.:07:15.

the months pass on, my body clock is slowing down. The care fertility

:07:16.:07:20.

group are not mincing their words either. They say:

:07:21.:07:40.

It must be disappointing for everyone who was waiting to undergo

:07:41.:07:45.

fertility treatment. But it is as though they have

:07:46.:07:47.

already made their minds up. Well, Mark joins me

:07:48.:07:49.

now from Hartlepool. So, another twist at

:07:50.:07:50.

the town's fertility unit. What are the managers

:07:51.:07:52.

saying tonight? The sign behind me, K outside the

:07:53.:08:04.

hospital, says no emergency department, and no licensed

:08:05.:08:06.

fertility services either, much to the consternation of people like

:08:07.:08:13.

Jodie. The local clinical commissioning group, no comment from

:08:14.:08:18.

them so far tonight, but in the past they have said the rules for

:08:19.:08:21.

procurement are strict, and due process was followed in this case.

:08:22.:08:26.

One little footnote, I understand this whole affair will be discussed

:08:27.:08:31.

at a scrutiny panel next month. Perhaps more to come.

:08:32.:08:32.

Thank you. A 6ft 7 inch car dealer

:08:33.:08:35.

from Newcastle has been banned from driving for 12 months

:08:36.:08:37.

after pleading guilty to dangerous driving,

:08:38.:08:39.

but he maintains it was all down 26-year-old Adam Elliott was accused

:08:40.:08:42.

of standing up while he was driving a convertible Ford Ka

:08:43.:08:46.

on the Tyne Bridge a year ago, but he insists he was

:08:47.:08:49.

sitting down at the time. This incident took place

:08:50.:08:53.

in January last year, when car dealer Adam Elliot

:08:54.:08:59.

was on his way back from buying He had the roof down,

:09:00.:09:02.

and he's accused of standing up in the car while he was driving over

:09:03.:09:07.

the Tyne Bridge. Although he insists

:09:08.:09:10.

that he was sitting down and it was just his 6'7 stature that

:09:11.:09:12.

made him look like he was standing, he took the advice of his lawyer

:09:13.:09:16.

and pleaded guilty to dangerous But I was too tall for the car,

:09:17.:09:20.

and that has caused a distraction Well, I was playing up to people

:09:21.:09:29.

that were waving, but I would say They were waving

:09:30.:09:40.

at me, I waved back. Mr Elliot has 12 previous

:09:41.:09:45.

convictions of driving while disqualified, and he now has

:09:46.:09:47.

to wait until next month I am worried, but I have been

:09:48.:09:50.

honest and I have accepted what I have done is wrong,

:09:51.:09:55.

so I can only hope for the best and hope they realise

:09:56.:09:59.

it was a bit of foolishness. The judge gave Mr Elliott credit,

:10:00.:10:01.

saying he sensibly pleaded guilty But he went on to say,

:10:02.:10:04.

"It was obvious that you were showing off,

:10:05.:10:09.

demonstrating your height, and distracting other drivers

:10:10.:10:11.

in a small open topped vehicle." Mr Elliott will be sentenced

:10:12.:10:15.

the week commencing 27th February. A North Yorkshire farmers' mart

:10:16.:10:27.

that's been in existence for over 100 years says it doesn't know

:10:28.:10:30.

if it can survive a big hike Hawes Mart sells 100,000 sheep

:10:31.:10:33.

a year, but will see its rates bill leap from ?7,500 a year

:10:34.:10:39.

to ?47,000 from April. It's just one rural enterprise that

:10:40.:10:43.

will be disproportionately hit by a new government revaluation

:10:44.:10:45.

of premises - something that's Our Business Correspondent

:10:46.:10:48.

Ian Reeve reports. Sheep have been sold at this auction

:10:49.:11:00.

mart in Hawes for 103 years. It has seen its business

:11:01.:11:03.

rates shoot up. The revaluation means a big

:11:04.:11:09.

bill is coming in April. We have been paying business rates

:11:10.:11:14.

of about ?7,000, ?7,500, It means that the mart

:11:15.:11:16.

is not going to be viable. The profits that we make

:11:17.:11:25.

are not substantial. It is going to be touch and go

:11:26.:11:27.

whether we can survive. Business rates have been

:11:28.:11:31.

reset across the country. Some properties will see a fall,

:11:32.:11:33.

but rural enterprises are the worst hit in the first revaluation

:11:34.:11:37.

for seven years. The figures are compiled by

:11:38.:11:40.

Whitehall's Valuation Office Agency, a London body threatening

:11:45.:11:47.

in the North of England, and most of them have received

:11:48.:12:00.

an increase of around 100%, and some 200%, but nobody has had

:12:01.:12:02.

a rise like ours of 600%. 100,000 sheep are sold

:12:03.:12:08.

here every year, including The mart is an essential

part of the process I almost regard it as

:12:23.:12:27.

and you are certainly not as safe, But, if the mart goes,

:12:28.:12:31.

it won't only be farmers Stuart's guesthouse offers a stay

:12:32.:12:37.

for mart buyers and sellers. September and October are busy

:12:38.:12:44.

months anyway in Hawes, but the mart adds something to it

:12:45.:12:48.

because you get farmers from all And then you get the visitors

:12:49.:12:51.

who find it a huge attraction as well, so it is a big part

:12:52.:12:57.

of Hawes, the market. In its defence, the Valuation Office

:12:58.:13:00.

Agency says it sets rateable values fairly and equally,

:13:01.:13:03.

but there is an appeal process. Time enough for the mart to no

longer be at the heart A new type of recruitment drive

:13:07.:13:12.

is taking place in Cumbria to help avoid future staff shortages

:13:13.:13:24.

in the NHS and emergency services. 600 schoolchildren are taking part

:13:25.:13:27.

in sessions which give a taste of what it's like to work

:13:50.:13:53.

Ambulance Service needs new recruits. Current staff are helping

:13:54.:13:57.

find them. We want to encourage young people to join us in the

:13:58.:14:01.

ambience service and all the emergency services, and we want to

:14:02.:14:04.

encourage people who live in Umbria to stay and work in Cumbria. We have

:14:05.:14:09.

some trouble keeping them here sometimes, but we encourage people

:14:10.:14:12.

who live and work here and understand the area to join us.

:14:13.:14:15.

Rural geography and career opportunities can make recruitment

:14:16.:14:19.

difficult in Cumbria. Finding ways to ease those problems now and in

:14:20.:14:23.

the future are crucial. Everyone always says we have got a crisis

:14:24.:14:27.

right now, what will we do? Maybe if we had done something like this five

:14:28.:14:31.

years ago we would be in a better situation. The ultimate aim is to

:14:32.:14:35.

encourage some of our students into our health care professions. From

:14:36.:14:39.

health care options to policing and social work, the feedback from

:14:40.:14:43.

students so far is positive. I want to work in the police when I am

:14:44.:14:47.

older, and I have learned more information about what it is like to

:14:48.:14:51.

be in the police force. Very useful because I did not think about

:14:52.:14:55.

paramedics until I came. Now I am debating about what I want to do

:14:56.:14:58.

with my future. Quite useful, to be fair. I have got to learn quite a

:14:59.:15:03.

bit of stuff that I didn't know and that will be useful in the future. I

want to be a midwife, and be University of Cumbria has got the

:15:12.:15:14.

best course to do it in the local area. For Maddie, today has helped

:15:15.:15:21.

confirm her career choice as a paramedic. I think it will be a

:15:22.:15:26.

rewarding job, going home and thinking I have done something

:15:27.:15:30.

worthwhile. Next week, the recruitment event heads to Carlisle,

:15:31.:15:35.

with the hope of finding more pupils like Maddie to staff our services in

:15:36.:15:37.

the future. A Tyneside entrepreneur

:16:08.:16:10.

to America and Australia. I just got an e-mail saying I had

:16:11.:16:24.

been nominated for this 30 under 30 for Europe in retail, so I sent over

:16:25.:16:30.

some figures and I was in the list. It is just absolutely overwhelming.

:16:31.:16:34.

An amazing surprise. I just can't believe it.

:16:35.:16:37.

With Ken Loach's "I Daniel Blake" gearing up for the final lap

:16:38.:16:39.

of the awards season, Tyneside can once again pride itself

:16:40.:16:42.

And its popularity with film and TV crews is being celebrated

:16:43.:16:50.

in a new book written by a former producer of "The Tube."

:16:51.:16:54.

Our arts reporter, Sharuna Sagar, has been taking a closer look

:16:55.:16:56.

at what makes Newcastle a lead location.

:16:57.:17:03.

It is an incredibly gritty and authentic film,

:17:04.:17:07.

Get Carter, one of the all-time gangster greats.

:17:08.:17:14.

The feature film was shot on location in and around Newcastle.

:17:15.:17:17.

Released in 1971, it put the city on the cinematic map.

:17:18.:17:22.

This is where, literally, Michael Caine's ghost walks straight

:17:23.:17:30.

This is where Sting and Tommy Lee Jones walk

:17:31.:17:38.

And the Tyne Bridge, that is where Mr James Bond himself,

:17:39.:17:44.

Daniel Craig, makes that last walk with oasis playing

:17:45.:17:54.

in the background, in the epic Our Friends in the North.

:17:55.:17:56.

It's a moment, the location manager will never forget.

:17:57.:17:58.

I was able, with police permission, to stop the traffic

:17:59.:18:01.

for about two minutes on the Tyne Bridge completely.

:18:02.:18:03.

You must have some somewhere stashed away.

:18:04.:18:04.

That pig hasn't had a penny up its backside in about ten years.

:18:05.:18:09.

But it was Bob and Terry who first brought a North East sensibility

:18:10.:18:12.

into the nations living rooms back in 1964.

:18:13.:18:15.

You have to remember that the north-east was not

:18:16.:18:23.

acknowledged on the screen until The Likely Lads.

:18:24.:18:28.

And then When the Boat Comes in, which also feature James Brolin.

:18:29.:18:31.

Over the five decades since, the region has been used to great

:18:32.:18:34.

I have worked on so many productions going back years.

:18:35.:18:39.

Our Friends in the North, Billy Elliot, Catherine Cookson

:18:40.:18:41.

Each one has got a different set of demands, from modern to period.

:18:42.:18:49.

Newcastle and the north-east offer everything they could ever want,

:18:50.:18:52.

Most recently, the city's streets were used in the new Transformers

:18:53.:18:56.

movie that was also filmed in Alnwick and Bamburgh.

:18:57.:18:58.

From science fiction to social realism, it was also the backdrop

:18:59.:19:01.

for arguably the biggest British film to come out of

:19:02.:19:04.

I am just down from the Central library.

:19:05.:19:14.

And, for those of you familiar with the film, you might

:19:15.:19:17.

The story of a man struggling to survive in a welfare system

:19:18.:19:23.

could have been set anywhere, but director Ken Loach

:19:24.:19:26.

Jesus Christ, who is first in this queue?

:19:27.:19:35.

Do you mind if this young lass signs on first?

:19:36.:19:42.

The landscape and the architecture are spectacular.

:19:43.:19:45.

Newcastle has got some of the finest city buildings,

:19:46.:19:47.

and also I have to say some of the worst.

:19:48.:19:50.

What drew us was the character and the language, and this sense

:19:51.:19:55.

With no film fund currently in place, the health of the region's

:19:56.:20:01.

TV and film industry is down to the allure of its natural assets.

:20:02.:20:06.

In 2015, the region's film and TV industry generated about ?30 million

:20:07.:20:09.

Just imagine what we could do if we had those funds again.

:20:10.:20:24.

The future lies firmly in the lap of the film gods.

:20:25.:20:30.

And maybe a Geordie soap or a romcom will be the answer to local

:20:31.:20:35.

You mentioned last night about reports of an overseas bid

:20:36.:20:44.

to buy a major stake in Middlesbrough football club.

:20:45.:20:51.

Well, no official reaction from the club, but we do believe

:20:52.:20:53.

it s been rejected by the chairman, Steve Gibson, who, of course,

:20:54.:20:56.

has been in sole charge of the club since 1994.

:20:57.:20:58.

It's thought the offer is from a combined

:20:59.:21:00.

The group is headed by a businessman called Chien Lee, who owns Nice

:21:01.:21:05.

He previously tried, and failed, to buy Hull City.

:21:06.:21:09.

It's understood the consortium has also had talks with both

:21:10.:21:13.

Newcastle and Sunderland, but they made an offer to buy a 50%

:21:14.:21:16.

But that deal has been turned down by Steve Gibson.

:21:17.:21:24.

It's thought he is keen to attract overseas investment,

:21:25.:21:28.

Joleon Lescott has become Sunderland's first signing

:21:29.:21:39.

The defender has joined the Black Cats on a short-term contract.

:21:40.:21:43.

The 34-year-old, who spent three years with David Moyes at Everton,

:21:44.:21:46.

has been training on Wearside for the last couple of weeks.

:21:47.:21:50.

He's signed a deal until the end of the season, after being

:21:51.:21:53.

And it's not just the men's team which is struggling.

:21:54.:22:00.

Sunderland ladies star, Beth Mead, has signed for Arsenal.

:22:01.:22:02.

The England U23 striker was the top scorer in

:22:03.:22:04.

She's the first high profile player to leave the club

:22:05.:22:09.

since the announcement that the Lady Black Cats

:22:10.:22:11.

England's northernmost town is hoping to build

:22:12.:22:19.

The idea is it would serve both the local community and possibly

:22:20.:22:24.

the town's football team, Berwick Rangers.

:22:25.:22:26.

The Berwick Stadium Trust has found last near East Ord

:22:27.:22:29.

which it wants to develop, to inspire a future generation

:22:30.:22:32.

Dawn Thewlis has been for a look around.

:22:33.:22:42.

If you build it, they will come. The famous line from the Kevin Costner

:22:43.:22:50.

film, field of dreams. This is Berwick's field of dreams, where

:22:51.:22:52.

they want to create the best sporting facility for miles around.

:22:53.:22:56.

In real life it is never quite as simple as that, and it is still very

:22:57.:23:03.

much just a dream. We have got an option on this site, a fantastic

:23:04.:23:07.

location state of the bypass, and we are working from an idea on a piece

:23:08.:23:12.

of paper to make it reality. It is taking quite a long time to get to

:23:13.:23:16.

this stage, so I would not be deluded enough to think it will

:23:17.:23:18.

happen immediately, but already there has been a groundswell of

:23:19.:23:21.

support, and all it takes is the right people to speak to each other

:23:22.:23:24.

desire getting things done on the ground. The semiprofessional

:23:25.:23:30.

football part of it would be that stadium there with a grassed pitch.

:23:31.:23:34.

Triple facilities are a big heart of the plan. The home of Berwick

:23:35.:23:39.

Rangers has seen Berwick Billy Macri better days. The project is not

:23:40.:23:43.

dependent on the Scottish League 2 side moving there. John is also a

:23:44.:23:48.

director of the club, so how has the idea been received so far? I think a

:23:49.:23:52.

cautious welcome to the idea. At the minute it is an idea. It is my job

:23:53.:23:56.

as the person who is pushing this forward to put it into an idea that

:23:57.:24:00.

is well thought out and costed. All we are concerned about at the moment

:24:01.:24:05.

is making it a realistic option. It is about much more than football. As

:24:06.:24:10.

well as artificial pitches, indoor and outdoor, that would be a

:24:11.:24:13.

gymnastics hall, multisports court and a full-sized running track. We

:24:14.:24:22.

spoke to guide early on in the process and he travels thousands of

:24:23.:24:26.

miles each year to get a good track to train on. Everyone who will come

:24:27.:24:30.

after him in the world of athletics would welcome a new track here. Now

:24:31.:24:34.

the hard work begins finding financial backing and support from

:24:35.:24:38.

the town county council to turn Eric's Field of dreams into reality.

:24:39.:24:43.

We have got another piece on Berwick club later in the week. There is a

:24:44.:24:49.

big anniversary coming up. I will say no more.

:24:50.:24:54.

Man of mystery! Now, the weather. It feels like it

:24:55.:24:57.

is turning colder. It is, and it will continue to turn

:24:58.:25:02.

colder over the next few days. Today, weather-wise, in Cumbria

:25:03.:25:08.

things are fairly cloudy and damp, but the snowdrops are thriving on

:25:09.:25:12.

it. Further east, the cloud is more broken which has led to some nice

:25:13.:25:18.

sunset again. The next few days, you will notice things turning colder.

:25:19.:25:22.

Generally dry, but the breeze will make things feel colder still as we

:25:23.:25:27.

head towards the end of the working week. Overnight tonight, a lot of

:25:28.:25:32.

cloud around. It will produce some patchy rain and drizzle, mostly in

:25:33.:25:37.

the West. Eastern areas tending to stay dry, but enough cloud and

:25:38.:25:41.

breeze to keep most cases frost free. The late-night roundabout to

:25:42.:25:50.

or three Celsius, but most places will escape a frost. Any cloud

:25:51.:25:54.

breaks could allow a localised touch of frost, but many of us will remain

:25:55.:25:59.

frost free overnight. A cloudy start to tomorrow, but it should break up.

:26:00.:26:04.

Most places will stay dry and we should see some decent bright spells

:26:05.:26:07.

on and off through the day. It will never be unbroken blue sky, but a

:26:08.:26:13.

bright picture for most of us. A top ten at of eight or nine Celsius, but

:26:14.:26:17.

the wind is quite strong at times coming up from the south, and that

:26:18.:26:20.

will take the edge of the numbers, making it feel colder than those

:26:21.:26:24.

figures suggest. The wind will feature in the weather as we head

:26:25.:26:27.

through tomorrow and into Thursday and the weekend. Lots of isobars on

:26:28.:26:38.

the chart. Things start to turn a bit milder as we head towards the

:26:39.:26:42.

weekend. But it is complicated by thickening cloud and patchy rain

:26:43.:26:50.

towards the weekend. Thursday, a raw feel to things. That south-easterly

:26:51.:26:54.

wind really peddling the chapters back. A lot of cloud around at

:26:55.:27:00.

times. In the East, Tebbutt is only just above freezing. Less cold in

:27:01.:27:05.

the West, but still cold if you are exposed to the breeze. Friday will

:27:06.:27:09.

be a dry, bright day, Tebbutt is slightly up. Dash-macro

:27:10.:27:18.

temperatures. The wind eases the weekend, and daytime temperatures

:27:19.:27:23.

recover. But there will also be patchy rain. We will keep you

:27:24.:27:24.

updated. Friday looks like a day for a

:27:25.:27:36.

bracing walk along the coast. That's it from us tonight. Goodbye.

:27:37.:27:53.

You might get the impression that history is just a record

:27:54.:27:55.

Very often, the line between fact and fiction

:27:56.:28:01.

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

:28:02.:28:08.

have been manipulated to become our greatest historical legends.

:28:09.:28:22.

I want to be entertained. Entertain me.
