In tonight's programme: improving the future of UK defence.

:00:00.:00:12.

A team of engineers in Oxford

:00:13.:00:13.

the impact of unmanned space warfare and drones.

:00:14.:00:26.

road users have their say over the safety

:00:27.:00:28.

And later on: why some feel what's taught in schools isn't preparing

:00:29.:00:32.

young people for the real world of work.

:00:33.:00:34.

Unmanned warfare should be the future of UK defence - that's

:00:35.:00:47.

according to the Defence Secretary, Sir Michael Fallon, who's been

:00:48.:00:49.

speaking at an engineering conference in Oxford.

:00:50.:00:51.

It's as space warfare and drones, based on dragonflies

:00:52.:00:53.

and underwater creatures, are being developed by scientists

:00:54.:00:55.

The technology is part of a new Ministry of Defence

:00:56.:01:01.

strategy, which will also involve astronaut Tim Peake.

:01:02.:01:04.

Our Political Editor Peter Henley has more.

:01:05.:01:09.

It flies at 45 miles an hour, and weighs less

:01:10.:01:12.

Skeeter is the next generation of military drone.

:01:13.:01:21.

Developed by animal dynamics, a spin off company from

:01:22.:01:23.

Oxford Universities Zoology department, it uses two pairs

:01:24.:01:27.

It flaps like an insect. It has interesting upshot is, it has

:01:28.:01:38.

natural suspension, it can tolerate high wind and goes to the heart of

:01:39.:01:44.

what we are about, looking at how you can derive higher performance

:01:45.:01:47.

and high efficiency by studying natural systems. The Defence

:01:48.:01:53.

Secretary said the Armed Forces are increasingly at the cutting edge of

:01:54.:01:59.

technology. I want to make it easier for small high-tech companies to

:02:00.:02:02.

come to defence, to bring their ideas and products and see whether

:02:03.:02:07.

they can be used by the Armed Forces. It has been too slow in the

:02:08.:02:11.

past, too bureaucratic, difficulties getting funding.

:02:12.:02:19.

Formula 1 motor racing is another area in which British

:02:20.:02:22.

research leads the world - and the Ministry of Defence

:02:23.:02:24.

announced a dragons den style panel of experts to help advise

:02:25.:02:27.

The chief Executive of Woking based Maclaren Ron Dennis

:02:28.:02:30.

Our voices will be strong but and hopefully people will listen and

:02:31.:02:41.

this is the minister pushed on me to be disruptive.

:02:42.:02:42.

Also pushing the frontiers of military kit,

:02:43.:02:44.

spaceman Tim Peake - an army Major - will join the panel.

:02:45.:02:49.

From the Spitfire on, Britain has stepped up its

:02:50.:02:52.

technology in the face of a hostile threat.

:02:53.:02:54.

Now the Ministry of Defence is warning that to be

:02:55.:03:03.

If we can develop these weapons, others can too.

:03:04.:03:12.

A man's died after he became trapped in a shed which

:03:13.:03:15.

Police and fire crews were called to Badgemore yesterday afternoon.

:03:16.:03:18.

Paramedics arrived but say they were unable help him.

:03:19.:03:20.

Police are treating the death as unexplained.

:03:21.:03:25.

A 39-year-old woman was also seriously injured -

:03:26.:03:27.

She's been treated at Stoke Mandeville hospital.

:03:28.:03:34.

A man's appeared in court charged with murdering a man in Oxford,

:03:35.:03:36.

who was injured in a stabbing more than ten years ago.

:03:37.:03:40.

Samuel Marriot-Gray died nine years after being stabbed at a party

:03:41.:03:43.

Charges have now been brought after the case was sent

:03:44.:03:48.

47-year-old Leonard Morrison, who used to live on Bath Street

:03:49.:03:52.

in Oxford, has been remanded in custody.

:03:53.:03:56.

He's due to appear at Oxford Crown Court on Thursday.

:03:57.:04:01.

Next tonight - the A34 isn't fit for purpose and needs to be urgently

:04:02.:04:04.

upgraded to a motorway - that's according to some people

:04:05.:04:07.

who've been taking part in a special BBC South debate.

:04:08.:04:12.

This morning's event was broadcast simultaneously across our region,

:04:13.:04:14.

It brought together safety and transport

:04:15.:04:20.

The A34 is a major road - running north to south

:04:21.:04:24.

through the region, linking to other key routes.

:04:25.:04:27.

Because of that, it carries huge volumes of road freight

:04:28.:04:29.

But a BBC study has shown that, despite its poor reputation,

:04:30.:04:35.

the number of accidents is broadly in line with other

:04:36.:04:37.

The A34 today, and who would want to be this stranded motorist

:04:38.:04:46.

or the patrolman coming to the rescue, just

:04:47.:04:48.

There is no room for driver error, which unfortunately leads to so many

:04:49.:04:56.

incidents in that short stretch of road.

:04:57.:04:58.

Hello, and welcome to this special programme.

:04:59.:05:03.

This morning, BBC local radio stations along the route brought

:05:04.:05:06.

together those shaping the debate about the A34.

:05:07.:05:11.

Statistically, a comparatively safe road, high profile

:05:12.:05:13.

accidents like this one, where a lorry driver

:05:14.:05:15.

using his phone killed four members of the same family,

:05:16.:05:17.

It has been shown that mixing fast traffic with slow-moving traffic is

:05:18.:05:32.

dangerous. What can we do? There is a role for technology

:05:33.:05:35.

in this and we will await the results of Highways England's

:05:36.:05:38.

safety review of the road to see whether there is a role

:05:39.:05:41.

for average speed cameras, Even as the broadcast got underway,

:05:42.:05:43.

came news of a four-vehicle crash. Well, the road is now flowing freely

:05:44.:05:49.

once more and this morning's accident was what police describe

:05:50.:05:52.

as a minor shunt with But within minutes, traffic

:05:53.:05:54.

was trailing back for several miles It is already at overcapacity

allowed to roam free again today. They've been cooped up in farms

:13:28.:13:32.

and homes all over the country since early December to protect them

:13:33.:13:35.

from an outbreak of bird flu. Today the government

:13:36.:13:38.

relaxed the rules. And some farmers have

:13:39.:13:39.

taken the decision not to release their birds even though

:13:40.:13:43.

they're now free to do so. Roger Finn joins us now

:13:44.:13:46.

from Woodlands near Totton. Roger, it all sounds

:13:47.:13:48.

a bit confusing. I will try and explain. Just over

:13:49.:14:02.

here in the darkness there is now a boundary of great significance for

:14:03.:14:04.

anybody who keeps chickens. Here the controls have been relaxed. Chickens

:14:05.:14:09.

are free to roam. That is the situation in most parts of the

:14:10.:14:13.

country but here we are in a zone designated by the government as

:14:14.:14:19.

posing a higher risk of bird flu. On this side, chickens have still got

:14:20.:14:23.

to be kept indoors. The reason is that here we are within five

:14:24.:14:27.

kilometres of an area that has a big population of aquatic wildfowl and

:14:28.:14:29.

they are the problem. Wild ducks and geese have caused

:14:30.:14:33.

a major bird flu epidemic Scientists say the particular

:14:34.:14:36.

strains of some of these birds spreading this winter is not

:14:37.:14:42.

harmful to humans, but it is highly infectious

:14:43.:14:45.

and deadly to birds. That is why all flocks have been

:14:46.:14:47.

forced inside for the last 12 weeks, including these

:14:48.:14:50.

on a farm near Romsey. Even though these could now go free,

:14:51.:14:58.

because the farm is not in a higher-risk zone,

:14:59.:15:02.

the farmer has decided It might be a smaller chance

:15:03.:15:04.

but there is still a chance my chickens might get this

:15:05.:15:09.

disease and it would wipe them out So talking to other

:15:10.:15:12.

producers alike, they are The welfare of the

:15:13.:15:15.

chicken comes first One consequence

:15:16.:15:18.

is this farm and many others now lose their

:15:19.:15:20.

free range status. That normally attracts a premium

:15:21.:15:24.

of 40 extra pence per dozen. Many supermarkets have said

:15:25.:15:28.

they will continue to pay free The farmers are hoping customers

:15:29.:15:31.

will be understanding. They are still high welfare,

:15:32.:15:36.

they still roam freely in the barn A single case of bird flu means

:15:37.:15:39.

the whole flock has to be destroyed, with no compensation

:15:40.:15:51.

and no insurance. It is devastating for

:15:52.:15:52.

the farmer and his business. We are sorry some farmers

:15:53.:15:55.

will experience a loss in We keep it under constant

:15:56.:15:57.

review so that requirement for housing is not extended

:15:58.:16:01.

longer than it has to be. The hope is the chickens

:16:02.:16:03.

will be back in this field and dozens of others

:16:04.:16:07.

like it across the South in a couple of months,

:16:08.:16:09.

when the weather has warmed up and the wild geese and ducks have

:16:10.:16:12.

started heading off. Now, what did you learn at school

:16:13.:16:19.

that's proved useful in your job? New research shows many young

:16:20.:16:25.

scientists, IT workers and engineers believe a lot of what they studied

:16:26.:16:29.

is little use in the real world. The Baker Dearing Educational Trust

:16:30.:16:34.

says almost half of the young people it surveyed believe technical skills

:16:35.:16:37.

would have been much more useful than subjects

:16:38.:16:40.

like history or geography. The Trust promotes University

:16:41.:16:42.

Technical Colleges to help Nikki Mitchell reports

:16:43.:16:44.

from one college in Reading. From this device I connect

:16:45.:16:51.

with that device... He is one of a number of former UTC

:16:52.:16:58.

students who have secured apprenticeships with

:16:59.:17:01.

networking specialist, Cisco. His employer sends him

:17:02.:17:03.

back regularly to help I am trying to get them to use

:17:04.:17:12.

the technical skills they already have but at the same

:17:13.:17:16.

time we are giving them the technical knowledge

:17:17.:17:19.

at the same time. In my old school I would never have

:17:20.:17:21.

days like this where we basically All of it is practical,

:17:22.:17:27.

even in the normal day-to-day lessons it is not just

:17:28.:17:30.

sitting by a computer. It is practical and

:17:31.:17:33.

hands-on, as well. How useful do students

:17:34.:17:35.

here think more traditional subjects like history

:17:36.:17:36.

and geography might be Don't get me wrong, it could be,

:17:37.:17:38.

but not for me personally. This is more like tech science

:17:39.:17:52.

that is what I prefer doing. The educational trust which promotes

:17:53.:17:57.

UTCs says half of youngsters already employed in science, computing

:17:58.:17:59.

and engineering think traditional subjects are largely useless

:18:00.:18:01.

for the world of work. With industry struggling

:18:02.:18:03.

to keep up with the speed of technological advance, what hope

:18:04.:18:06.

do schools have without We can put that innovation into

:18:07.:18:10.

the hands of the students themselves They will continue to be at the edge

:18:11.:18:22.

of things being done in the industry when they join those

:18:23.:18:25.

particular organisations. There is a great mix

:18:26.:18:27.

in schools, some schools are fantastic, ordinary

:18:28.:18:29.

schools, secondary schools, at bringing

:18:30.:18:30.

the curriculum to life

:18:31.:18:32.

and making it real. But I don't think it is widespread

:18:33.:18:35.

enough and therefore some schools are not doing enough

:18:36.:18:37.

with employer partners, because headteachers are accountable

:18:38.:18:39.

to the performance tables. But I think there needs

:18:40.:18:41.

to be just a rethink The National Union of

:18:42.:18:43.

Teachers is sceptical. It believes if all schools

:18:44.:18:46.

were properly funded the quality of vocational education

:18:47.:18:51.

would significantly improve anyway. Tony is here. And I am here! I

:18:52.:19:06.

imagine you did sport when you were at school. Indeed, quite a lot of

:19:07.:19:12.

that. I was never good at mathematics but I do know the value

:19:13.:19:20.

of three points. We know a bit about Chris Hughton and his past with

:19:21.:19:24.

Newcastle. He said it was his best achievement as a manager, getting

:19:25.:19:27.

Newcastle promoted to the Premier League. Here he is as Brighton

:19:28.:19:31.

manager and rapper Benito is in charge of Newcastle, both gunning

:19:32.:19:35.

for the title and automatic promotion and the Premier league is

:19:36.:19:36.

where they want to be. It's the biggest match

:19:37.:19:38.

of the championship season so fdar of Rafa Benitez's Newcastle

:19:39.:19:47.

if they win tonight at the Amex. The Albion have won

:19:48.:19:52.

three of their last four as they bid to earn a place

:19:53.:19:54.

in the Premier Legaue - 20 years after almost dropping out

:19:55.:19:57.

of the football league altogether. Earlier I spoke to Johnny

:19:58.:19:59.

Cantor at the Amex. He explains why these two are at the

:20:00.:20:02.

top of the tree. It is the second consecutive

:20:03.:20:06.

sell-out at the AMEX. It pits first against second,

:20:07.:20:09.

the best home record against the best away record

:20:10.:20:12.

in the championship. It also pits the best defence,

:20:13.:20:14.

the Seagulls, with 17 clean sheets this season, against the best

:20:15.:20:16.

attack in the division, the Magpies, who have already scored

:20:17.:20:19.

64 goals this season. The fans and players know

:20:20.:20:21.

something's got to give. What we would put in

:20:22.:20:29.

front is a strong team with a lot of good players and

:20:30.:20:33.

always it is tougher to play this Of course, a win is not

:20:34.:20:37.

just three points. It is the confidence

:20:38.:20:40.

as well, it is a big thing. We know three points is always

:20:41.:20:53.

important in the league, Johnny. But if Brighton got the win

:20:54.:21:01.

tonight it could be very significant on several

:21:02.:21:04.

fronts, couldn't it? Not only would the gap

:21:05.:21:05.

between Brighton and Newcastle be at four points

:21:06.:21:15.

but they would also have a 9-point gap between them and third placed

:21:16.:21:18.

Huddersfield. It would also put more pressure

:21:19.:21:19.

on Newcastle this evening, because Newcastle have to go

:21:20.:21:22.

to Reading on Tuesday and before that they also have to

:21:23.:21:24.

travel to third-placed Huddersfield

:21:25.:21:26.

on Saturday, as well. As we approach the last ten games

:21:27.:21:28.

of the season you feel both sides will want the momentum
