Hello and welcome to South Today. news teams where you are.

:00:00.:00:00.

In tonight's programme: Guilty of murder over a copy

:00:00.:00:00.

The court heard Michael Dan`her killed Adrian Greenwood over a first

:00:00.:00:14.

Not just about the animal's death, but also its life -

:00:15.:00:18.

the farmer claiming the standard of Halal meat needs to be ilproved.

:00:19.:00:22.

And later on: Into a tailsphn - shock today as this airwoman

:00:23.:00:25.

is stripped of an award amid claims she used

:00:26.:00:27.

A man's been sentenced to lhfe in prison for murdering

:00:28.:00:46.

51-year-old Michael Danaher stabbed Adrian Greenwood at his homd

:00:47.:00:49.

The court heard he was killdd because he owned a rare copx of Wind

:00:50.:00:55.

Michael Danaher was no stranger to Oxford.

:00:56.:01:09.

In the weeks before he killdd Adrian Greenwood, he'd been caught

:01:10.:01:12.

several times on CCTV near restaurants in St Clemdnts

:01:13.:01:14.

And this selfie shows the khller with blood on his face moments

:01:15.:01:23.

after stabbing Adrian Greenwood 16 times in his home.

:01:24.:01:28.

The 42-year-old book dealer was found dead at his four-storey

:01:29.:01:31.

As well as suffering more than a dozen stab wounds,

:01:32.:01:38.

the Oxford University gradu`te had also been stamped on

:01:39.:01:40.

The court heard Michael Dan`her had made several car journeys

:01:41.:01:46.

from his home in Peterborough to visit Adrian Greenwood

:01:47.:01:49.

His murder was the result on this first edition of Wind

:01:50.:01:56.

in the Willows worth ?50,000 - later found by police

:01:57.:01:59.

The book ended up on eBay for ?2,000.

:02:00.:02:07.

A spreadsheet was also found on Danaher's computer with ` list

:02:08.:02:13.

of high profile names he also intended to steal from,

:02:14.:02:16.

including Louise Redknapp, Gary Lineker and Simon Cowell.

:02:17.:02:23.

During the course of the investigation, we looked

:02:24.:02:25.

From that laptop, it was cldar he had produced a list

:02:26.:02:28.

of very wealthy people that he was going to pursue in one

:02:29.:02:31.

form or another to try and gain some money.

:02:32.:02:34.

That might have been robbing, stealing,

:02:35.:02:35.

The jury here at Oxford Crown Court took just under two hours

:02:36.:02:44.

to reach their unanimous guilty murder verdict.

:02:45.:02:48.

Michael Danaher showed no elotion and kept his arms crossed.

:02:49.:02:52.

During sentencing, the judgd said Danaher had savagely stabbed

:02:53.:02:55.

Mr Greenwood to death and bdcame obsessed with famous person`lities.

:02:56.:03:00.

He went on to say he left hhm bleeding in his own hallway

:03:01.:03:04.

He'll now spend at least a linimum of 34 years in prison.

:03:05.:03:13.

A man from Buckinghamshire has been jailed along with a man

:03:14.:03:16.

from Lancashire for sexual offences against children.

:03:17.:03:19.

Graham Dartnell, who is from Milton Keynes,

:03:20.:03:21.

Paul Bailey, who is from Blackpool, was sentenced

:03:22.:03:24.

Police say that as a result of the investigation,

:03:25.:03:28.

two young children have been given protection.

:03:29.:03:30.

The pair were arrested following a joint investigation

:03:31.:03:32.

involving Thames Valley, West Yorkshire and

:03:33.:03:33.

An Oxfordshire family of organic farmers are leading the calls

:03:34.:03:42.

for the Halal meat industry to improve its standards.

:03:43.:03:44.

Lutfi and Ruby Radwan opened Willowbrook Farm

:03:45.:03:45.

They are now urging the indtstry to move away from mass prodtction

:03:46.:03:50.

to ensure better treatment of animals to stay true to Hslam.

:03:51.:03:53.

Two former Oxford academics who gave it all up to follow their dreams

:03:54.:03:59.

of running their own organic farm in the tiny Oxfordshire

:04:00.:04:02.

Producers of Halal organic products, they're leading the cause

:04:03.:04:09.

for Britain's Halal meat industry to improve its standards.

:04:10.:04:13.

This is Willowbrook Farm and we're the Radwan family.

:04:14.:04:15.

We're the first Halal organhc farm in the UK.

:04:16.:04:19.

In our interpretation, anything that's good and he`lthy

:04:20.:04:23.

for you and acceptable and does least harm to the environment

:04:24.:04:27.

Muslims need to be aware th`t factory farming can never rdally be

:04:28.:04:35.

moulded to the requirements of Halal.

:04:36.:04:46.

As long as your accepting f`ctory farmed chickens and mass sl`ughter,

:04:47.:04:49.

three birds per second being killed with some tape-recording of the name

:04:50.:04:52.

of God being mentioned and an automatic blade

:04:53.:04:53.

performing the slaughter, killing an animal through stunning,

:04:54.:04:55.

understunning, it misses the electric bar, dipping chickens

:04:56.:04:57.

And the ones that miss that and also miss the blade and end up actually

:04:58.:05:02.

dying in the process that comes after, which is when they are dipped

:05:03.:05:05.

into boiling water for the defeathering process.

:05:06.:05:09.

So that whole industry is really incompatible

:05:10.:05:10.

We need to increase awareness among the communities.

:05:11.:05:17.

Wholesomeness, purity is important and we need to develop the concept

:05:18.:05:22.

of quality, not quantity, which is the essence

:05:23.:05:24.

When you're finding chickens turning up for ?2, or two for ?3,

:05:25.:05:33.

you've got to ask the questhon, how on earth could an animal have

:05:34.:05:36.

been reared and produced and provided to that point of sale

:05:37.:05:39.

Actually, why not just eat less meat?

:05:40.:05:47.

Why not eat a lot less meat, go back to special occasions and enjoy it?

:05:48.:05:51.

We are producing all this chicken in this way.

:05:52.:05:56.

This is real, face up to th`t reality and be aware of the reality.

:05:57.:06:02.

A unique exhibition of three-dimensional portrahts made

:06:03.:06:04.

using a scanner and 3D printer has opened at Waddesdon Manor

:06:05.:06:07.

The technology could be used to conserve historical

:06:08.:06:11.

Katharine Da Costa has been to see how it works.

:06:12.:06:15.

Just as an artist tries to capture a true likeness,

:06:16.:06:27.

the Veronica scanner uses ehght cameras to capture 100

:06:28.:06:31.

high-resolution photos to m`p every detail of a human head.

:06:32.:06:36.

The 2D images are then processed into digital models

:06:37.:06:38.

What we're using here, we also use in its basic format

:06:39.:06:47.

in places like Kazakhstan, Lebanon, Jordan, to record

:06:48.:06:49.

We want to create a databasd of cultural heritage that c`n

:06:50.:06:55.

be used to be studied and disseminated and preserved

:06:56.:06:57.

Waddesdon Manor's charitabld trust, The Rothschild Foundation,

:06:58.:07:04.

Lord Rothschild has long been interested

:07:05.:07:08.

in science and new technology as well as art and conservation

:07:09.:07:13.

This exhibition tries to unite the two.

:07:14.:07:16.

We could use it to make replicas of sculpture.

:07:17.:07:19.

We could use it to interrog`te some of the historic textiles,

:07:20.:07:22.

for example, if you think about tapestries and how thdy've

:07:23.:07:25.

If you can take very, very high-resolution

:07:26.:07:28.

scans and images of them, it gives you the possibilitx

:07:29.:07:30.

to recreate the object as it might have been when it was made

:07:31.:07:34.

3D printers are now so accurate they're already widely used

:07:35.:07:39.

in areas such as dentistry, engineering and architecturd.

:07:40.:07:45.

In the future, they could bd used to print human cells to forl skin

:07:46.:07:48.

You will be to print organs from your cells.

:07:49.:07:59.

Very much less prone to rejdct by your body because it's your body.

:08:00.:08:02.

You can design the exact organ you need in the exact size xou need

:08:03.:08:05.

and it would fit exactly the purpose.

:08:06.:08:09.

So this is my very own 3D ilage - it's taken about 40 minutes,

:08:10.:08:14.

it s not as detailed as somd because they've had to speed it up,

:08:15.:08:18.

but it s definitely captured my features.

:08:19.:08:22.

And if you would like to sed more of the 3D sculpture printing go

:08:23.:08:25.

The goals from the weekend's football matches involving Oxford,

:08:26.:08:29.

Swindon and the MK Dons is coming up.

:08:30.:08:31.

but the final decision rests with the Executive which has

:08:32.:08:43.

Later on South Today, success for British Athletes

:08:44.:08:48.

as thousands took to the streets of Portsmouth in the Great South

:08:49.:08:51.

She became the poster girl for female aviators everywhdre.

:08:52.:08:58.

Tracey Curtis-Taylor, who dubbed herself the "Bird

:08:59.:09:05.

in a Biplane", was lauded for her solo trip from Cape Town

:09:06.:09:09.

Later, she flew from Farnborough, in Hampshire, to Sydney,

:09:10.:09:13.

But she has been stripped of an award for her Cape Town

:09:14.:09:18.

flight in a row over whether she used a co-pilot

:09:19.:09:20.

She is one of the most celebrated women in aviation who traversed the

:09:21.:09:36.

globe in this open cockpit by plane. Now one of Tracey Curtis-Taxlor s

:09:37.:09:39.

previous expeditions is unddr a cloud. Three years ago she flew

:09:40.:09:44.

10,000 miles across Africa supposedly alone. But this weekend,

:09:45.:09:50.

the light aircraft associathon confirmed members voted to rescind a

:09:51.:09:54.

prestigious trophy for solo flying. The row began after a key tdam

:09:55.:09:59.

member Sam Rutherford claimdd Tracey Curtis-Taylor only flew a slall part

:10:00.:10:04.

of the journey solo. He told the BBC that on that basis, he had `dvised

:10:05.:10:09.

her not to accept awards, btt was ignored. Tracey Curtis-Taylor is a

:10:10.:10:17.

celebrated aviation, who was emulating Lady Mayor's crossing of

:10:18.:10:23.

Africa. She was uncontactable today, but says:

:10:24.:10:47.

But in the uncompromising aviation world, definitions tend to be set in

:10:48.:10:53.

stone. Solo means what it s`ys. You are the only person in the cockpit.

:10:54.:10:57.

If the flight is half an hotr, and you're the only person in there

:10:58.:11:01.

that's solo. Equally, sever`l thousand hours flying around the

:11:02.:11:04.

world is also solo. Floss ldgal minimum to call it solo. Thd legal

:11:05.:11:08.

definition means that you h`ve to be the only person in the cockpit.

:11:09.:11:12.

The row has not affected Tr`cey Curtis-Taylor's passion for flying.

:11:13.:11:16.

Last year she completed a 14,00 mile three month flight frol

:11:17.:11:20.

Farnborough to Australia. Only last month her latest endeavour to fly

:11:21.:11:26.

across the US ended suddenlx in the arropeb za desert and there could be

:11:27.:11:31.

rough weather ahead for her retractors as she says she hs

:11:32.:11:33.

considering legal action. Unions were summoned to Parliament,

:11:34.:11:38.

this afternoon, to give evidence to MPs about the Southern R`il

:11:39.:11:40.

strike which has caused chaos for commuters in Sussex,

:11:41.:11:43.

Surrey and Hampshire. Our Political Reporter Mark Coles

:11:44.:11:45.

followed the meeting and johns us Well, Sally it was mostly ddtailed

:11:46.:11:56.

technical evidence about thd wider impacts of rail franchises, but the

:11:57.:12:00.

chairman asked a question, what are the prospects, she said, for a

:12:01.:12:03.

resolution of the Southern Rail dispute? Mick Cash from the RMT took

:12:04.:12:09.

the bait and said, "I want ` meeting with the transport secretarx. He

:12:10.:12:13.

said the problem lies as much with the department as the company that

:12:14.:12:19.

runs Southern Rail." What I can t understand is why MPs who rdpresent

:12:20.:12:25.

constituents of southern constituents are prepared to accept

:12:26.:12:28.

less for their constituents than what we've got in Scotland, what

:12:29.:12:32.

we've got in Great Western `nd on the East Coast. So the ball is

:12:33.:12:37.

firmly in the DFT's hands and I m hoping they will sit down whth us

:12:38.:12:40.

because we put viable soluthons to them and I hope we can get `round a

:12:41.:12:44.

table and solve it. One of the MPs, the Sussex MP, wasn't having any of

:12:45.:12:49.

that. He rounded on Mr Cash and said he was playing politics. In

:12:50.:12:54.

exceptional circumstances, when it is safe to operate the train, as it

:12:55.:12:58.

is on 40% of the network, I want to go home rather than wait another

:12:59.:13:01.

hour. I don't think it is s`fe for people to have to get off the train

:13:02.:13:03.

and not be able to leave thd station. So, to me, your issue about

:13:04.:13:09.

safety is gamesmanship and H put it to you what this really comds down

:13:10.:13:14.

to, if your members are not critical to the operation of that tr`in then

:13:15.:13:18.

all of a sudden when you call a strike it doesn't make any

:13:19.:13:21.

difference. Needless to say the union leaders disagreed. Thdy said

:13:22.:13:25.

rail privatisation has been a spectacular failure and the dispute

:13:26.:13:31.

about conductors on Southern Rail was evidence that rail franchising

:13:32.:13:33.

wasn't working. Mark, thank you very much.

:13:34.:13:39.

Work to carve a new badge into a hillside at Fovant

:13:40.:13:41.

The Flanders poppy, which is 25 metres across,

:13:42.:13:44.

sits alongside eight other regimental badges.

:13:45.:13:46.

It's the first new chalk emblem since 1970, and marks the 100th

:13:47.:13:49.

It's a building which has bden around since Tudor times.

:13:50.:13:56.

A mansion once owned by one of Henry VIII's most senior advisers.

:13:57.:13:58.

But, perhaps rather approprhately, it's losing its head.

:13:59.:14:00.

The roof of The Vyne mansion, in Basingstoke,

:14:01.:14:02.

They're giving King Henry VHII a professional deep clean bdfore

:14:03.:14:13.

The Tudor monarch made several visits to the Vyne.

:14:14.:14:19.

The property houses a collection of art and furniture

:14:20.:14:25.

dating back 500 years, but two years ago water leaked in.

:14:26.:14:30.

It is 150 years since the l`st major work on the roof so now

:14:31.:14:33.

the National Trust is starthng a ?5 million restoration project.

:14:34.:14:37.

We know this was once part of a major Tudor mansion.

:14:38.:14:40.

Henry came here at least three times.

:14:41.:14:42.

Twice with Catherine of Aragon and once with Ann Berlin.

:14:43.:14:47.

We know that everyone learns Tudors when at school so Henry VIIH,

:14:48.:14:50.

that iconic historical figure and we want to make sure

:14:51.:14:53.

that we preserve this buildhng because it has been here for over

:14:54.:14:56.

500 years and we want to make sure that people learning the Tudors

:14:57.:14:59.

in years to come will have ` chance to step in the footsteps

:15:00.:15:03.

of when Henry came here with Ann Berlin.

:15:04.:15:05.

They will rebuild collapsing chimneys and crumbling parapets

:15:06.:15:06.

We will have the opportunitx to look at a lot of the detail

:15:07.:15:13.

of the carpentry and constrtction and we will be able to see how

:15:14.:15:16.

someone from the 16th century was thinking about how

:15:17.:15:18.

they would configure a roof of this size.

:15:19.:15:20.

The lawn around the house is being discovered with

:15:21.:15:24.

Stone work is being protectdd with wooden casing and everx paving

:15:25.:15:28.

stone to be lifted is being numbered so it can be precisely

:15:29.:15:31.

Inside the roof, they have tncovered marks, carved for

:15:32.:15:34.

What we have got here is a protective mark.

:15:35.:15:40.

It was believed at that timd demons and witches could enter the building

:15:41.:15:43.

and by using the circle marks, they are common on churches known

:15:44.:15:54.

as consercration crosses, it was believed they could

:15:55.:15:56.

keep the bad spirtsz from out of the building.

:15:57.:15:58.

The superstitious markings have inspired the charity to start

:15:59.:16:00.

a fund-raising project towards the restoration costs.

:16:01.:16:04.

People can draw their own ddpictions on the back of the new roof tiles.

:16:05.:16:13.

The Vyne have stay open throughout the 18 month project and visitors

:16:14.:16:16.

will be able to go on an aerial walkway to get a bird's eye view

:16:17.:16:20.

Something I didn't know was interesting was those circlds.

:16:21.:16:30.

The sun shone for thousands of runners from across the region

:16:31.:16:42.

at yesterday's Great South Run in Portsmouth.

:16:43.:16:46.

It was the 27th staging of `n event which has been in the city now

:16:47.:16:49.

for more than a quarter of a century, and there was plenty

:16:50.:16:52.

There hasn't been a British winner in the men's race at the Grdat South

:16:53.:17:01.

Run since Mo Farah in 2009. But Chris Thompson produced a fhne run

:17:02.:17:06.

to outpace his local rival to take victory over ten miles. The

:17:07.:17:10.

conditions so often treacherous on a Sunday in October, played to the

:17:11.:17:15.

elite athletes favour. Thompson at 35, turned the tables on Olxmpian

:17:16.:17:20.

Vernon, the pair finished in the reverse order last week in

:17:21.:17:24.

Birmingham. The winning margin 6 seconds. A British one and two,

:17:25.:17:29.

three was completed through Matt Sharp in. In the women's race, this

:17:30.:17:36.

athlete had a great South Rtn debut to remember. She outpaced hdr rivals

:17:37.:17:42.

by a minute with a sprint fhnish to claim victory. But for so m`ny

:17:43.:17:46.

others this run was about r`ising funds for charity. 25,000 would take

:17:47.:17:50.

part in events this weekend and many more will be inspired. It is amazing

:17:51.:17:54.

how many people have been pdrsuaded over the years to get involved and

:17:55.:18:00.

take part. We had a AK yestdrday and many hundreds of those will go on

:18:01.:18:04.

and tackle the ten miler next year. Yeah, it is brilliant. Even in

:18:05.:18:09.

places you expect to be quidt, there is kids with bowls of sweets and

:18:10.:18:13.

people playing loud music and when you hear your name, you get a spring

:18:14.:18:18.

in your step. I would do it again. Next year will be the 28th staging

:18:19.:18:24.

of this event. The Great Run proving great for Portsmouth too.

:18:25.:18:27.

Meanwhile an appeal has gond out for anyone who might have found

:18:28.:18:30.

an engagement ring which has been in a family for generations.

:18:31.:18:32.

Lee Mallon from Bournemouth posted this on social media,

:18:33.:18:34.

the ring was lost somewhere on the course yesterday

:18:35.:18:36.

Southampton ended a run of six consecutive defeats

:18:37.:18:46.

at Manchester City with a point at the Etihad yesterday.

:18:47.:18:50.

Saints took the lead when Nathan Redmond seized on a poor

:18:51.:18:53.

back pass from John Stones to put Claude Puel's men in front.

:18:54.:19:00.

Stones had a goal disallowed for off-side before the bre`k.

:19:01.:19:03.

Then after half time Kelechi Ihenacho levelled things up.

:19:04.:19:05.

Saints are eightth and feelhng good despite a busy period of fixtures.

:19:06.:19:09.

They have been on a bit of a tough run at the moment,

:19:10.:19:12.

but we have been in good form and it was just about taking

:19:13.:19:15.

a positive mindset into the game and once we went 1-0 up we felt

:19:16.:19:19.

a little bit comfortable, btt it is still a difficult place to come

:19:20.:19:22.

We're going to take it as a positive and take into the Cup

:19:23.:19:25.

The main talking point at Bournemouth was an appardnt elbow

:19:26.:19:32.

by Moussa Sissoko in the face of midfielder Harry Arter, Sissoko

:19:33.:19:35.

Edie Howe said he was even happier than after the 6-1 win over Hull

:19:36.:19:41.

last week as the Cherries, who hit the bar through

:19:42.:19:44.

This was the incident involving Arter for which Sissoko now

:19:45.:19:48.

Karl This Robinson's MK Dons tenure as manager came to an end

:19:49.:20:02.

after another home defeat, this time against Southend.

:20:03.:20:06.

The Shrimpers found the net three times without reply -

:20:07.:20:09.

The result was the seventh loss in 15 matches this season and saw

:20:10.:20:14.

Robinson leave by mutual consent after six years in charge.
