In tonight's programme: Could do better.

:00:00.:00:00.

Why some schools in Oxfordshire will see their funding cut -

:00:00.:00:00.

Also on the way: as the Oxford Children's Hospital celebrates

:00:07.:00:10.

its 10th anniversary, there's a new appeal

:00:11.:00:13.

We step back in history and look at the evolution of Milton Keynes.

:00:14.:00:33.

It's been revealed nearly half of Oxfordshire's schools

:00:34.:00:37.

are going to lose money under new government plans.

:00:38.:00:40.

The way education is funded is being looked at across the country

:00:41.:00:43.

to deal with unfairness in the system.

:00:44.:00:45.

But campaigners in Oxfordshire say some schools could be worse off

:00:46.:00:48.

It's the ultimate political football.

:00:49.:00:59.

Oxfordshire schools have traditionally been in the lower half

:01:00.:01:06.

of the league when it comes to school funding.

:01:07.:01:08.

Last year, the government promised to tackle

:01:09.:01:10.

Hopes were raised that schools here would be in

:01:11.:01:14.

for a big win, but actually nearly half of schools are going to lose

:01:15.:01:18.

133 schools will get more funding,

:01:19.:01:24.

by 0.8% for Oxfordshire schools. That's below inflation.

:01:25.:01:31.

And when the new formula was revealed,

:01:32.:01:34.

Overall I think it's horrendous, I think we

:01:35.:01:38.

are facing an unsustainable cut to our budgets.

:01:39.:01:42.

And for struggling smaller schools, the consequences are very serious.

:01:43.:01:48.

but I don't just see how that can work in practice.

:01:49.:01:53.

And I think there will be a huge political backlash

:01:54.:02:00.

Badgemore Primary School in Henley will lose

:02:01.:02:08.

Headteacher Jackie Steele says that could mean losing a member of staff.

:02:09.:02:12.

It's going to be even harder to achieve, you know,

:02:13.:02:14.

the results and the standards that we are being

:02:15.:02:17.

expected to achieve, the bar is being raised ever higher,

:02:18.:02:21.

and we are being stretched ever further,

:02:22.:02:22.

and I think that's a really big ask of school leaders.

:02:23.:02:27.

At the other end of the funding league table,

:02:28.:02:29.

which is getting a 2.8% boost under the new formula,

:02:30.:02:37.

but headteacher Lynn Knapp says that money will really only

:02:38.:02:40.

When we were looking at going to deficit, we were

:02:41.:02:43.

actually, we can't employee any extra staff, we may even have to

:02:44.:02:46.

So, by having either a standstill figure or at

:02:47.:02:49.

least an increase we are just protecting the staff we've got.

:02:50.:02:52.

The Department for Education insists the new formula will mean an

:02:53.:02:55.

end to the postcode lottery in school funding, but in Oxfordshire

:02:56.:02:58.

fears remained that for some schools losing out, it could be game over.

:02:59.:03:08.

More than 40% of junior doctors have admitted to falling

:03:09.:03:11.

asleep at the wheel, on their way home.

:03:12.:03:13.

The BBC's Inside Out programme has investigated the impact

:03:14.:03:15.

working night shifts, is having on staff across the south.

:03:16.:03:19.

It's 8am, and junior doctor Sam Jayaweera has just finished

:03:20.:03:24.

another 13 hour night shift in Oxford.

:03:25.:03:26.

Really, really busy. Quite stressful.

:03:27.:03:33.

and we had a full, full unit of patients.

:03:34.:03:37.

Right, so if you'd like to come through to the simulator.

:03:38.:03:40.

To see how working nights affects her driving,

:03:41.:03:43.

we brought her to the Transport Research Laboratory in Berkshire.

:03:44.:03:47.

Fatigue is a huge road safety problem.

:03:48.:03:49.

Our own perception of our fatigue level tends to lag

:03:50.:03:52.

behind reality, and by the time we've realised that we could have

:03:53.:03:55.

already made a very serious mistake that could have led to a collision.

:03:56.:03:58.

Sam is put through a series of tests on a virtual motorway,

:03:59.:04:01.

and just 19 minutes in, she starts having micro sleeps.

:04:02.:04:07.

Micro sleeps are a slightly longer blink, up to 15 seconds in duration,

:04:08.:04:12.

but neurologically it's an indicator

:04:13.:04:15.

that someone is disengaged from the task.

:04:16.:04:17.

you can see the muscle tone in her face

:04:18.:04:21.

Sam, you can now stop the vehicle,

:04:22.:04:30.

this is a wake-up call about the dangers of driving tired.

:04:31.:04:36.

What's really worrying is the number of times that

:04:37.:04:39.

and there were 12 occasions when you failed to respond quickly enough.

:04:40.:04:46.

And Inside Out is on tonight at 7.30 on BBC One.

:04:47.:04:58.

The international trade secretary Dr Liam Fox has been shown around

:04:59.:05:01.

Banbury's engineering firm, Pro Drive.

:05:02.:05:03.

He visited the motorsport company as the government launched

:05:04.:05:06.

It's promising to invest in science, support new businesses

:05:07.:05:12.

and upgrade infrastructure - as part of plans to bolster

:05:13.:05:15.

Other countries, France and Germany, have exported a bigger share of

:05:16.:05:28.

their GDP than we are, and we need to do that because we will be

:05:29.:05:34.

running a balance of payments deficits for some time now, and I

:05:35.:05:38.

want to see the UK selling more of what we make and the skill that we

:05:39.:05:41.

have abroad because there is actually a big demand for them.

:05:42.:05:43.

This week - the Oxford Children's Hospital is celebrating

:05:44.:05:46.

its 10th anniversary and is marking the milestone

:05:47.:05:48.

Staff there treat children from all over the UK,

:05:49.:05:53.

providing some of the most specialist care.

:05:54.:05:57.

Doctor Jay Jayamohan is a leading brain surgeon who's helped

:05:58.:05:59.

My name is Jay Jayamohan, and I'm a paediatric neurosurgeon

:06:00.:06:18.

at the Oxford Children's Hospital here in the John Radcliffe Hospital.

:06:19.:06:21.

We start at about 7.45 and we do a handover

:06:22.:06:24.

..a patient who was diagnosed with spina bifida.

:06:25.:06:36.

When he was born he was taken straight into intensive care, he had

:06:37.:06:42.

his spine closed at two days old, he had his first shunt put in at

:06:43.:06:46.

one-week-old, and then when he was two weeks old we went home.

:06:47.:06:49.

So he's had quite a few operations

:06:50.:06:51.

What we're going to need to do is get him seen by

:06:52.:06:57.

physiotherapists, community paediatricians.

:06:58.:07:00.

Sometimes, you have to give bad news to families.

:07:01.:07:04.

It is possible and probable that he'll

:07:05.:07:08.

But as long as he continues to make progress then we just keep going.

:07:09.:07:14.

Being able to make them understand that actually this is the best way

:07:15.:07:18.

forward and this is something that has to be done requires a lot of

:07:19.:07:21.

Come on, big lad! He's heavy.

:07:22.:07:25.

Ooh! Come on!

:07:26.:07:27.

Having children has certainly has impacted

:07:28.:07:30.

It's no good if you get so overwhelmed that

:07:31.:07:43.

you can't do the operation, so you have to be

:07:44.:07:46.

able to say yes, this is a really big deal

:07:47.:07:48.

but that actually we've got to get on with it

:07:49.:07:51.

and do it in a calm and controlled manner.

:07:52.:07:53.

Leighton is a young boy who had problems

:07:54.:07:59.

with fluid build-up on his brain

:08:00.:08:02.

for which he had a telescopic operation.

:08:03.:08:04.

Amy got a phone call from the hospital to say

:08:05.:08:06.

I put his life in the hands of Mr Jayamohan

:08:07.:08:14.

and I've never been more happy at the decision I've

:08:15.:08:18.

Since then everything has just gone uphill.

:08:19.:08:21.

Mr Jayamohan rings Amy just out of the blue,

:08:22.:08:23.

We struck gold with our consultant, he's amazing.

:08:24.:08:34.

I get to come in every day and do operations on sick babies and

:08:35.:08:39.

make them better, and for those that I can't make better I make what time

:08:40.:08:47.

they have as enjoyable for them and their families as possible.

:08:48.:08:54.

And tomorrow, we'll meet four-year-old

:08:55.:08:56.

who received life-saving treatment for cancer at

:08:57.:09:00.

There's also coverage of that story on the BBC Radio Oxford breakfast

:09:01.:09:04.

After a nine-month delay, a new unit to provide urgent medical

:09:05.:09:11.

support at the Townlands Hospital in Henley has now

:09:12.:09:13.

Building work is finally complete on the the Rapid Access Care Unit -

:09:14.:09:22.

which is part of the ?10 million hospital project.

:09:23.:09:24.

The unit's a consultant and GP-led service -

:09:25.:09:26.

giving patients assessments and rehabilitation support,

:09:27.:09:27.

The centre was supposed to open in March last year.

:09:28.:09:31.

Next tonight: Milton Keynes has officially turned 50 today.

:09:32.:09:33.

Half a century ago, the town was formed from a collection

:09:34.:09:36.

of rural villages and it's grown to a town of more than a quarter

:09:37.:09:40.

Mike Cartwright has this special report

:09:41.:09:42.

which takes us back to the beginning:

:09:43.:09:51.

When millions first got a glimpse of Milton Keynes,

:09:52.:09:53.

an ad campaign to tempt more people to live here.

:09:54.:09:59.

Diane Sutton moved four times in 40 years in MK, and last,

:10:00.:10:05.

to here, where the world home exhibition was held in the 80s.

:10:06.:10:09.

and the right-hand one he used as his office.

:10:10.:10:15.

In her 20s, she lived in one of the first states built up she

:10:16.:10:21.

worked at the Open University, based here.

:10:22.:10:23.

was going to be a great place to live.

:10:24.:10:32.

It's a place which is not scared to do things that other

:10:33.:10:34.

We've got the first big shopping centre up

:10:35.:10:41.

we had the first multiscreen cinema at The Point.

:10:42.:10:50.

From a handful of houses, it became Europe's most

:10:51.:10:53.

Lee Shostak, a town planner in the States, helped plan MK.

:10:54.:11:03.

Yes, it's still young, but 200 years from now

:11:04.:11:07.

when you come back to Milton Keynes what will you find?

:11:08.:11:12.

You'll find our city's landscaping is the gift

:11:13.:11:14.

That isn't going to change, that, that is what makes

:11:15.:11:18.

No building should be higher than the tallest tree,

:11:19.:11:25.

that's what the planners first said,

:11:26.:11:26.

but of course with the arrival of buildings like Xscape,

:11:27.:11:29.

Now, there's talk of even taller buildings going up

:11:30.:11:34.

Its corporation came up with the plans.

:11:35.:11:41.

Its chair, Lord Campbell, this, one of the many

:11:42.:11:44.

But here is where the formal ground-breaking for MK happened.

:11:45.:11:47.

Next to the old A5, only 16 people here.

:11:48.:11:54.

Businessman Jim Wyatt, one of them.

:11:55.:11:55.

I think the only reason it was here was because

:11:56.:12:00.

the main trunk road limitation of what was behind us.

:12:01.:12:04.

Everything behind us was basically fields right to

:12:05.:12:09.

Warehouses here now super-sized,

:12:10.:12:13.

more than 10,000 businesses based here.

:12:14.:12:19.

Among them, Niftylift, started small

:12:20.:12:20.

but its reach is now global.

:12:21.:12:27.

It's our shop window, so our customers

:12:28.:12:28.

And so that's quite important, we're in a dynamic environment, and Milton

:12:29.:12:33.

Keynes is a great backdrop to our operation, here.

:12:34.:12:35.

We've grown to a company of something in the order of 450

:12:36.:12:41.

people, now, and you know, worldwide sales,

:12:42.:12:42.

They made fun of its roundabouts, but today it's one of the

:12:43.:12:48.

fastest-growing towns in the country.

:12:49.:12:51.

And the new kid on the block has grown up.

:12:52.:12:54.

Now, there's been a church at the site St Mary Magdalen

:12:55.:13:01.

in the very centre of Oxford as far back as Saxon times.

:13:02.:13:04.

But the years have taken their toll and the church roof

:13:05.:13:07.

The church choir have now taken matters into their own hands

:13:08.:13:11.

We need a fairly large sum of money because the roof

:13:12.:13:21.

The problem mainly is that part of the building is

:13:22.:13:26.

medieval and part as Victoria and where things have been joined

:13:27.:13:29.

together then the lead is splitting or the guttering is giving way,

:13:30.:13:34.

slates are loose, and of course, being a listed building, then,

:13:35.:13:43.

everything has to be specially chosen and specially

:13:44.:13:45.

arranged, and we need to keep this old lady,

:13:46.:13:47.

you know, in good working order,

:13:48.:13:50.

and she needs a new hat, I suppose you might say.

:13:51.:13:54.

Byrd's music is very, very well written for the text.

:13:55.:13:58.

No composers afterwards apart from Purcell and Britten

:13:59.:14:00.

have come up with an ability to really make sure the text comes

:14:01.:14:04.

His position as a Catholic within Protestant

:14:05.:14:09.

Britain meant that the music is absolutely

:14:10.:14:13.

it's just fantastic to sing, and really very wonderful

:14:14.:14:19.

I think Byrd, for me, is a very important composer, he worked

:14:20.:14:28.

in many different institutions, Anglican, Catholic, in a time that

:14:29.:14:30.

was very, very different to what he was perhaps used to doing

:14:31.:14:34.

He seems to have a sense of humour, he seems to have a

:14:35.:14:39.

sense of good word setting and wordplay and how

:14:40.:14:41.

Quite a challenge to sing so much music continuously which is why

:14:42.:14:53.

we've got a team of people, so we're doing it in shifts.

:14:54.:14:57.

I've got three other members of my family singing,

:14:58.:15:01.

We're doing it partly to raise awareness

:15:02.:15:05.

but also to have a chance to sing this music and have a sense of how

:15:06.:15:09.

it fits together, I mean, how it fits in the history of the church,

:15:10.:15:12.

I'm back with headlines at 8 o'clock and another

:15:13.:15:24.

Sally Taylor and the rest of the team are next,

:15:25.:15:28.

with the rest of today's news, sport and weather.

:15:29.:15:34.

Stay with us - Tony has all the weekend sport.

:15:35.:15:37.

Alexis has the weather - more fog on the way.

:15:38.:15:45.

It's back with a vengeance, dense fog patches already causing problems

:15:46.:15:49.

this evening, the details shortly. The bill for protecting Portsmouth

:15:50.:15:53.

from flooding is set to top ?150 million,

:15:54.:15:55.

a government minister Most of the money will have to be

:15:56.:15:57.

spent re-building Victorian defences in Southsea after storms breached

:15:58.:16:03.

the wall in 2014. Environment Minister Therese Coffey

:16:04.:16:08.

denied the city was soaking up money Our Political Editor

:16:09.:16:10.

Peter Henley reports. Much of the city of Portsmouth lies

:16:11.:16:28.

below sea level. When storms breached defences at Southsea, plans

:16:29.:16:31.

were drawn up in a major reinforcement of the sea walls. Any

:16:32.:16:35.

visit today the floods minister said the project looked ready to uproot.

:16:36.:16:39.

The City Council said it would be a real amenity for the setting. To use

:16:40.:16:45.

that seawall as almost a seating to watch some of the spectacular

:16:46.:16:50.

sailing that goes on and to have some more cycle pathways and to make

:16:51.:16:55.

it really safe, as much as we possibly can. This is just a

:16:56.:17:02.

temporary solution to make a permanent new seawall will cost ?140

:17:03.:17:08.

million. That money is probably on the way but the worry is that big

:17:09.:17:13.

schemes like this soak up all the available funds. It leaves less for

:17:14.:17:18.

rural areas. Areas like Hambledon have now seen major schemes but not

:17:19.:17:23.

everywhere can be protected. In the rural areas, it is difficult to get

:17:24.:17:28.

enough interested parties and money together to justify schemes that are

:17:29.:17:31.

easily justifiable in a place like Portsmouth when you're protecting so

:17:32.:17:35.

much in terms of number properties. It is a no-brainer. Some work has

:17:36.:17:39.

already been completed. This line of granite imported from

:17:40.:17:49.

Norway at a total cost of ?44 million. This is future proofed

:17:50.:17:57.

against proposed estimated climate change impacts. Never the less we

:17:58.:18:01.

will continue to encourage people to make their homes resilient as the

:18:02.:18:04.

one thing I cannot promise is that no one will be flooded ever again.

:18:05.:18:11.

When it comes flooding causes huge destruction and although the total

:18:12.:18:16.

bill has now topped over ?150 million, compare to the loss

:18:17.:18:19.

flooding would cause, the authorities believe it is a sensible

:18:20.:18:22.

use of taxpayer money. Prince Harry has been in Wiltshire

:18:23.:18:30.

today to see how former members of the Armed Forces are being helped

:18:31.:18:35.

with mental health issues. The prince spent the afternoon at the

:18:36.:18:39.

recovery Centre in Ted is worth what supports ex-service personnel and

:18:40.:18:42.

their families living with anxiety, depression and stress. No stranger

:18:43.:18:50.

to Help For Heroes, Prince Harry came today to learn more about the

:18:51.:18:56.

field of mental health. They call at the head and wins service where men

:18:57.:18:58.

and women find themselves dealing with depression, stress, anxiety and

:18:59.:19:04.

something turning to alcohol. There is a risk at the moment that people

:19:05.:19:11.

get used to experiencing low mood and anxiety and stress and think

:19:12.:19:15.

they don't need support, so the more we can raise awareness and see their

:19:16.:19:19.

stuff we can do and we can help you, if you can recognise those symptoms

:19:20.:19:25.

and yourself. The Prince was shown the things they do and introduced to

:19:26.:19:28.

people they help. They have found lots of ways to help people here.

:19:29.:19:34.

This gives them space to think but also they are in the outdoors, using

:19:35.:19:38.

tools and their hands and working as part of a team. I have got both

:19:39.:19:45.

physical and mental issues that I need to address, I am no longer the

:19:46.:19:49.

person I was when I joined the force. We would all agree it is a

:19:50.:19:53.

therapeutic environment and we enjoy being out and enjoy the company of

:19:54.:19:57.

Comrade is. Learning new skills and defining ourselves by what we can

:19:58.:20:03.

do. Lots of friends are still battling through but they have been

:20:04.:20:10.

pointed in this general direction by myself and other friends and

:20:11.:20:16.

colleagues. It is invaluable. With Prince Harry highlighting the issue,

:20:17.:20:21.

Help For Heroes hopes to remove the stigma of mental health problems.

:20:22.:20:27.

Straight on to sport and let's stop football and look ahead to

:20:28.:20:34.

Wednesday. I went to see their manager today and he was talking

:20:35.:20:37.

about they deem it would be to get Southampton to a major cup final,

:20:38.:20:40.

more on that coming up. Southampton ended a four game losing

:20:41.:20:41.

streak in the Premier league and will head to Anfield

:20:42.:20:44.

in a confident frame of mind after a convincing win over

:20:45.:20:46.

Leicester yesterday. The champions were no match

:20:47.:20:48.

for Saints in the midday sun. James Ward-Prowse swept

:20:49.:20:51.

in a fine first goal. Jay Rodriguez thumped in a second

:20:52.:20:52.

by reacting first to the lose ball They had a goal disallowed for

:20:53.:20:56.

offside early in the second half. Then Shane Long was bundled over

:20:57.:21:00.

in the box and Dusan Tadic completed Did you strike it as cleanly as you

:21:01.:21:27.

would have liked? I can't even remember, sometimes a bagel in and

:21:28.:21:33.
