and on BBC One we now join the BBC's news teams where you are.

:00:00.:00:00.

Welcome to BBC Points West with Liz Beacon and David G`rmston.

:00:00.:00:00.

A man from Somerset is stopped from visiting his elderly

:00:07.:00:13.

father after complaining about his dad's care.

:00:14.:00:16.

For the rest of the week when I wasn't there,

:00:17.:00:19.

he probably sat in total silence and we all know stimulation

:00:20.:00:21.

But was the care home within its rights?

:00:22.:00:36.

The prisoner who was kept in isolation just

:00:37.:00:42.

70 years ago, Peter Scott bdcame a father founder of conservathon. And

:00:43.:00:56.

We speak to David Attenborotgh about his journeys to some of

:00:57.:01:00.

A row with the care home led to a son being banned from visithng his

:01:01.:01:14.

father. Paul Doolan says he felt his

:01:15.:01:20.

93-year-old father wasn't An investigation by the Victoria

:01:21.:01:22.

Derbyshire Programme has revealed that Mr Doolan isn't alone ,

:01:23.:01:28.

and that hundreds of relatives face problems visiting

:01:29.:01:30.

their loved ones every year. We are all part of

:01:31.:01:32.

an ageing population. More than 230,000 people now live

:01:33.:01:42.

in full time residential care. But what happens when their new home

:01:43.:01:45.

decides their family It's increasingly common

:01:46.:01:47.

and the effects can be devastating. Paul Doohan's dad moved

:01:48.:01:53.

into the care home in Paul visited him every week

:01:54.:01:58.

for three years before He says it was because he h`d

:01:59.:02:04.

complained about poor He looked forward to me

:02:05.:02:08.

seeing him and taking him ott. The ban meant Paul and dad Terry

:02:09.:02:15.

could only meet at this club watched by a chaperone employed

:02:16.:02:23.

by the local authority. I always had a good relationship

:02:24.:02:28.

with Dad and it was The email banning Paul accused him

:02:29.:02:35.

of unacceptable behaviour I refute that completely,

:02:36.:02:48.

my dad did his best for me and I was out

:02:49.:02:54.

to do my best for my father. Solicitor Jemma Garside sees

:02:55.:02:57.

hundreds of simliar cases. She says it's because

:02:58.:03:16.

the law is a grey area. You don't have the rights

:03:17.:03:18.

as a tenant, the contract is written They set the terms and condhtions

:03:19.:03:21.

and you have to abide by those. Campaigners are now

:03:22.:03:29.

calling on the CQC to keep accurate records of how manx visitor

:03:30.:03:34.

bans are put in place in each Only then they say Will the full

:03:35.:03:37.

scale of the problem Professor Martin Green

:03:38.:03:41.

is from Care England, Earlier I asked him if it is ever

:03:42.:03:44.

right that someone can be b`nned I think there are circumstances

:03:45.:03:58.

where it could be legitimatd to ban someone for example if people going

:03:59.:04:01.

into a care home and behaving abusively to other residents or to

:04:02.:04:06.

staff there may be situations where somebody is banned but I have to say

:04:07.:04:11.

it would be an unusual situ`tion when that happens. If you go in and

:04:12.:04:17.

make a complaint, not everyone is a great diplomat, perhaps that could

:04:18.:04:20.

be taken the wrong way and xou cannot see your LAN or your mum or

:04:21.:04:26.

dad? Making a complaint is fine but people need to remember thex have to

:04:27.:04:30.

make complaints inappropriate ways. If, for example, the making of a

:04:31.:04:36.

complaint becomes to abusing the staff, that would be seen as abuse

:04:37.:04:40.

of staff. I should stress there is no reason why a complaint should

:04:41.:04:47.

result in a ban. Who decides whether someone is being abusive and

:04:48.:04:50.

deserves to be kicked off the premises, is it down to the home, is

:04:51.:04:54.

there any way you can go and say this is not fair? It is down to the

:04:55.:05:00.

home but there are other pl`ces you can go so if this caused grdat

:05:01.:05:05.

concern, you could take it tp with a Care Quality Commission who is the

:05:06.:05:09.

regulator but I would hope hn the majority of cases this can be

:05:10.:05:12.

resolved before it becomes dscalated to a ban. How common is this? Not

:05:13.:05:19.

very common or though it is not something where there are m`ny

:05:20.:05:25.

figures collated but if you look at the people in care homes and assume

:05:26.:05:30.

they all have one or two or three carers, you can see this is not a

:05:31.:05:35.

major issue but I am not underestimating the impact ht has on

:05:36.:05:41.

the people affected. There `re no central records kept. Indeed, no

:05:42.:05:46.

central records. Should there be? It might be helpful to see the scale of

:05:47.:05:51.

the issue and we can see how we can craft a solution so it gets dealt

:05:52.:05:56.

with before it becomes a situation where somebody is banned. Thank you.

:05:57.:05:58.

A report says measures taken to tackle flooding in Somerset

:05:59.:06:01.

A committee of MPs visited the county in April

:06:02.:06:04.

They studied efforts in places like Montacute to slow the run-off

:06:05.:06:12.

of rainwater by the use of ponds, trees and small dams.

:06:13.:06:18.

A transgender woman from Bath who spent six weeks in jail last

:06:19.:06:21.

year says prison staff made her feel like an animal in a zoo.

:06:22.:06:26.

Tara Hudson, who was born a man admits she deserved to go to prison.

:06:27.:06:30.

But she says the government needs to give more training

:06:31.:06:32.

It comes on the day the Justice Secretary has mdt

:06:33.:06:36.

with officers to discuss concerns about safety inside jails.

:06:37.:06:39.

I have been behind these bars, I know how transgender people are

:06:40.:06:55.

treated and it is not good. Eastwood Park hit the headlines when prisoner

:06:56.:07:02.

Tara was moved from Bristol following a nationwide camp`ign

:07:03.:07:05.

Many have been outraged Tar` who was born a man but lived as a woman to

:07:06.:07:10.

ten years had been taken to a men's jail after pleading guilty to

:07:11.:07:15.

assault. I felt I had no rights I felt like an animal in a zoo. Around

:07:16.:07:21.

160,000 people signed a pethtion to get Tara moved to a women's prison.

:07:22.:07:27.

After seven days, the OJ adlitted and she was moved. When she arrived,

:07:28.:07:31.

she says staff did not know what to do with her. Because of my gender

:07:32.:07:37.

identity, they felt they nedded to lock me up in segregation. @nd keep

:07:38.:07:44.

me away from the main popul`tion of the prison. The Ministry of Justice

:07:45.:07:48.

insists transgender prisoners are managed safely and in accordance

:07:49.:07:52.

with the laws. Tara says shd was kept in her south while othdr

:07:53.:07:56.

prisoners were allowed out to do college courses and go to the gym. I

:07:57.:08:01.

did not feel like I was equ`l to the other prisoners. I think ye`h, if

:08:02.:08:07.

you have done something bad, you should go to prison. You should be

:08:08.:08:13.

punished. But to be treated differently to other prisondrs. .

:08:14.:08:19.

What is your message to the government, what changes nedd to

:08:20.:08:24.

take place? Better training of staff and more understanding. Tar` did not

:08:25.:08:28.

have a gender recognition certificate, the paper to s`y she is

:08:29.:08:33.

legally now a woman, if she had that the guidelines say she would have

:08:34.:08:37.

been sent to a women's prison first. But the certificate is hard to come

:08:38.:08:42.

by. And just like Tara, manx transgender people simply do not

:08:43.:08:46.

have it. The government says discretion can be shown and a

:08:47.:08:51.

national review is taking place looking at improvements that can be

:08:52.:08:56.

made. The governor welcomes clearer balls but says a one size fhts all

:08:57.:09:02.

approach will not work. Transgender people are in different states of

:09:03.:09:06.

transition with different backgrounds and in different states

:09:07.:09:09.

physically and emotionally `nd mentally as well. And I think a

:09:10.:09:14.

basic set of guidelines is tseful but we should assess people as

:09:15.:09:20.

individuals. Managing the ndeds of different individuals has bdcome one

:09:21.:09:22.

of the biggest challenges the prison faces. It is cold and dark outside.

:09:23.:09:36.

But you are inside watching BBC Points West! Nice to have you with

:09:37.:09:41.

us. Plenty more to come... Stay with us.

about his latest adventures to see incredible beasts.

Transport police say Bristol is one of twenty five cities in thd UK

:10:01.:10:04.

where they have most concerns and reports about children

:10:05.:10:06.

most at risk from abuse using the railways.

:10:07.:10:09.

Three men were jailed yesterday for sexually abusing a numbdr

:10:10.:10:11.

One victim had travelled to Bristol regularly by train.

:10:12.:10:21.

On her journeys home, she'd written about the abuse she suffered.

:10:22.:10:24.

Friday night - on patrol at Bristol Temple Meads.

:10:25.:10:30.

We are looking out for anything untoward, anyone who may

:10:31.:10:32.

There's at least one report a week of a vulnerable child on rahlways

:10:33.:10:44.

And a big campaign for what these officers are trained to worry about.

:10:45.:10:48.

Children who are travelling alone, children who are maybe intoxicated

:10:49.:10:51.

or on drugs, people who are hanging out in groups of adults that

:10:52.:10:55.

Children dressed inappropri`tely for the time, or the weather.

:10:56.:11:04.

Like the teenager sexually `ssaulted by three Somali men

:11:05.:11:06.

She'd travelled the railways late at night, detailing in her diary

:11:07.:11:10.

We see, across the UK, generally around 15 reports

:11:11.:11:22.

where someone has expressed or identified a concern or risk

:11:23.:11:26.

and they have spoken to the child and it

:11:27.:11:28.

For the transport police, it's now about engaging

:11:29.:11:31.

with these children - and not seeing them

:11:32.:11:33.

In the past with better understanding now, where we may have

:11:34.:11:44.

regarded children as being ` nuisance or anti-social or describe

:11:45.:11:50.

them as being on the verge of acting with criminal by Hagar, we now look

:11:51.:11:52.

to see what is beyond that. Extra resources and training

:11:53.:11:56.

are being pumped into child The railways are at the heart

Founded by the late Sir Petdr Scott the trust now works around

the world in the name of conservation and education,

but faces new challenges as the world changes.

Our Gloucestershire reporter, Steve Knibbs, is at

because it is only two years old that older than he is. He mdt staff

the likes of the swans which he says he sees that Balmoral on thd way to

Gloucestershire. There are challenges ahead for the

conservationists here but mtch great work has been done over the last 70

:15:51.:15:54.

years thanks to the incredible pioneering vision of the Sir Peter

was a letter where he said lake the boy interested in national his -

work that has been done and pleased the message has finally got through.

:16:48.:16:50.

He will be pleased with the recent news about Antarctica being

:16:51.:16:57.

redacted, that is important that the planet and it is huge news of the

environment. Today, a cake was cut by Prince Charles, the preshdent of

projecting species and the current work of the trust in conservation

projects around the globe. H want to use this opportunity to congratulate

:17:17.:17:20.

all of you for the immense `mount of hard work and effort you put into

:17:21.:17:23.

this to the devotion and dedication you have shown to the whole cause.

:17:24.:17:30.

I'm worried the numbers are going down... He told Slimbridge to see

:17:31.:17:34.

friends of the species now thriving and learn more about those still

:17:35.:17:37.

endangered, proof there are many challenges still ahead. Hum`n

:17:38.:17:43.

society is the problem but we are also the solution. It has got to be

:17:44.:17:49.

about people, we are getting more disconnected from nature, wdre in

:17:50.:17:53.

the digital age and we have to embrace and use digital technology

:17:54.:17:58.

more effectively but still connect people with nature. 70 years on a

:17:59.:18:02.

sense of global achievement from this rural corner of Gloucestershire

:18:03.:18:05.

but also recognition and thdre is still a need for modern conservation

:18:06.:18:15.

in the modern world. A nice day out! I'm not sure if it was the

:18:16.:18:19.

microphone or if Prince Charles has a bad throat. If he is watching from

:18:20.:18:23.

Highgrove, get well soon. An eight year girl from Swindon has

:18:24.:18:25.

today met astronaut Tim Peake, after being invited to speak

:18:26.:18:28.

at a space conference in Portsmouth. Amelia Patterson sent him a picture

:18:29.:18:31.

of her solar system homework while he was onboard

:18:32.:18:34.

the International Space Station Andy Howard has been

:18:35.:18:36.

following her story. For many, it started

:18:37.:18:43.

with a big bang. For Amelia, the solar systel

:18:44.:18:51.

was created with a few yoghtrt pots. We painted it orange and whdn it

:18:52.:18:59.

dried we did yellow dots all over Life on Earth

:19:00.:19:02.

depends on the sun? Because if we didn't have the sun,

:19:03.:19:07.

everything on earth would bdcome ice and the whole thing would bd blue

:19:08.:19:13.

so we would all die. Right, well, moving on...I have

:19:14.:19:21.

got more questions... What is this big red

:19:22.:19:27.

splodge on Jupiter? That has one massive storm

:19:28.:19:31.

that covers some of it. You have scratched a bit

:19:32.:19:37.

of planet off! Tim Peake is a big deal in this

:19:38.:19:46.

house, Amelia sent him a picture of her solar system

:19:47.:19:56.

when he was in space... He sent a tweet back

:19:57.:19:58.

saying well done. What is it like having a message

:19:59.:20:00.

back from an astronaut whilst It certainly is, and today,

:20:01.:20:03.

Amelia got a little closer to him. First she listened to his speech,

:20:04.:20:14.

then in the room next door, This is Tim Peake talking to Earth

:20:15.:20:17.

from his radio on the ISS. It wasn't long before Ameli` met

:20:18.:20:24.

Tim...or should that be, It's a sneak preview of the long

:20:25.:20:38.

awaited new series of Planet Earth, which is of course made right

:20:39.:21:03.

here at the Natural The producers of Planet Earth II say

:21:04.:21:06.

we're about to get closer to some of the most inaccessible

:21:07.:21:11.

places in the world. And thanks to advances

:21:12.:21:18.

in technology, we'll be abld to come eye to eye with the animals

:21:19.:21:20.

that live there. A lucky few at tonight's prdmiere

:21:21.:21:23.

in Bristol are about to watch The series' narrator and broadcaster

:21:24.:21:26.

Sir David Attenborough A little earlier, Sabet

:21:27.:21:29.

Choudhury asked him... How planet Earth to is diffdrent. We

:21:30.:21:46.

have new gear. All kinds of new gear, I am surprised how thd

:21:47.:21:53.

technology takes you a step forward, things you never thought about. We

:21:54.:21:58.

thought about drones? That hs one thing. Camera traps are another

:21:59.:22:03.

which have developed. It is a tiny camera you can stick it where you

:22:04.:22:07.

like and it is activated by the animal, if there is movement so if

:22:08.:22:12.

you know an animal comes to a nest or to a marking post as manx do

:22:13.:22:17.

then you can gear it so when something appears it turns ht on and

:22:18.:22:21.

it will do that as long as there is movement. With planet Earth we were

:22:22.:22:28.

seeing the planet from a gods eye view but now from the animals point

:22:29.:22:31.

of view. There was almost nothing you can't do now. You can speed

:22:32.:22:36.

things up and slow them down, film from the air and the bottom of the

:22:37.:22:41.

sea and magnifying things... Everything, you can do. It hs a

:22:42.:22:47.

great advantage. What somebody will say doing this interview in ten

:22:48.:22:56.

years' time, I don't know! Oh, well, back in 2016, they did the last

:22:57.:23:04.

thing. That is their problel! As far as Bristol goes, still the bastion

:23:05.:23:08.

of national -- natural history, you must be so proud of the citx and

:23:09.:23:15.

what it has done. I am proud to be part of it. But it is not md. It is

:23:16.:23:23.

the BBC and a series of verx remarkable people in Bristol who,

:23:24.:23:30.

over the years, the last 50 years, established natural history here.

:23:31.:23:34.

What do you want people to take away from planet Earth? I did make

:23:35.:23:40.

programmes for people to take things away, I make programmes bec`use it

:23:41.:23:47.

is what I would like to watch. If I settle down of an evening, what

:23:48.:23:51.

would I want to see? I would want to see things like that. OK, hd may

:23:52.:23:58.

demand is prejudice, maybe so but that is what I would like pdople to

:23:59.:24:01.

say, to look at the programle and think, wow, isn't that
