Hello and welcome to South Today, I'm Edward Sault.

:00:10.:00:12.

from space to Sussex - Chichester astronaut Tim Peake

:00:13.:00:17.

returns home to visit an exhibition about himself.

:00:18.:00:21.

Also - helping them to treat themselves -

:00:22.:00:23.

the new therapy for teenagers who self-harm.

:00:24.:00:25.

And teed off - the golfers angry after their

:00:26.:00:28.

practice range closes because the council decided

:00:29.:00:29.

He's the man from Chichester who swapped Sussex for space.

:00:30.:00:41.

Astronaut Tim Peake is back home this lunchtime to see an exhibition

:00:42.:00:44.

Major Tim was the first British astronaut to live

:00:45.:00:49.

on the international space station for six months last year.

:00:50.:00:52.

Today comes as he's announced he's going back on another mission.

:00:53.:00:56.

Live to Sean Killick now and Sean Major Tim's old school had

:00:57.:00:59.

mounted quite a campaign to get him to come home, hadn't they?

:01:00.:01:03.

It was a bit surreal coming in and seeing your own life history

:01:04.:01:06.

on the board in front of you but the exhibition

:01:07.:01:09.

It documents the mission but more importantly,

:01:10.:01:14.

it educates people about human space flight, what we are doing,

:01:15.:01:17.

why we are doing it. That is one of the most

:01:18.:01:20.

important messages we are trying to get across.

:01:21.:01:23.

Very strange to see half your life on display?

:01:24.:01:26.

It is quite strange as well seeing some artefacts here that I had

:01:27.:01:30.

with me and clothing I wore in space, it is very unusual.

:01:31.:01:37.

How clear was your view of your home area, the south of England?

:01:38.:01:42.

What could you make out? What went through your mind?

:01:43.:01:47.

I had to wait for a sunny day to be able to see from the space station

:01:48.:01:51.

and having launched in December, I had to wait quite a long time

:01:52.:01:54.

before the weather started to improve over the UK.

:01:55.:01:57.

It was fantastic to be able to look down and have a great

:01:58.:02:00.

You are so detached from planet earth but to get to see where you

:02:01.:02:11.

grew up is quite surreal. How has your life changed since you landed?

:02:12.:02:20.

The post flight period is exceptionally busy. The most

:02:21.:02:23.

important thing for us is the scientific data. That is why we have

:02:24.:02:29.

the space station programme. Being able to get back to do outreach and

:02:30.:02:34.

PR is important as well but obviously, that has to take second

:02:35.:02:37.

priority to the science. And being priority to the science. And being

:02:38.:02:41.

based in Houston makes it difficult to get back to the UK so everything

:02:42.:02:45.

takes it's time during the post flight period. You might be going

:02:46.:02:51.

back in the next few years, what are your thoughts? I am very excited

:02:52.:02:55.

about the prospect. There is a fantastic space programme going on.

:02:56.:03:00.

The European Space Agency is very active in giving its astronaut

:03:01.:03:05.

opportunities to go back for future missions.

:03:06.:03:08.

A 60-year-old man from Sandown has been arrested

:03:09.:03:11.

A 45-year-old woman from Cowes was taken

:03:12.:03:18.

to St Mary's Hospital on the Isle of Wight yesterday afternoon.

:03:19.:03:21.

She was found by officers seriously ill at a house in Gurnard.

:03:22.:03:24.

The RMT union says its members are meeting this weekend to discuss

:03:25.:03:27.

whether to call more strike action as part of its ongoing dispute

:03:28.:03:30.

12 train drivers who are members of the RMT have walked out today -

:03:31.:03:36.

the last day of action scheduled so far.

:03:37.:03:38.

Four more Dorset councils have voted in favour of plans

:03:39.:03:41.

for the county to be carved up into two unitary authorities.

:03:42.:03:44.

Dorset County, Weymouth Portland, West and North Dorset districts

:03:45.:03:47.

Poole Council also voted for the move on Tuesday.

:03:48.:03:53.

Dorset's other councils vote by the end of next week.

:03:54.:03:56.

If the new structure is approved, it would go live from April 2019.

:03:57.:04:02.

Services have been held to mark Holocaust Memorial Day

:04:03.:04:05.

In Oxford, members of the public and councillors gathered

:04:06.:04:11.

for a special ceremony at the town hall, marking the anniversary

:04:12.:04:15.

of the liberation of Auschwitz at the end of the Second World War.

:04:16.:04:18.

John Fieldsend, who now lives in Thame, remembers Hitler coming

:04:19.:04:20.

We locked ourselves into our flat, but there were these huge

:04:21.:04:27.

And I can still remember that voice talking about "Der Juden,

:04:28.:04:35.

der Juden, der Juden". And that memory.

:04:36.:04:39.

It is firmly locked in the back of my head,

:04:40.:04:43.

Teens who self-harm are being offered a new form of therapy

:04:44.:04:48.

in Buckinghamshire - and it's showing early

:04:49.:04:51.

Dialectical behaviour therapy - or DBT - uses techniques

:04:52.:04:56.

like mindfulness to help young people in distress

:04:57.:04:58.

to treat themselves. Sophie Sulehria reports.

:04:59.:05:02.

Over the past year, Milton Keynes CAMHS has rolled out

:05:03.:05:05.

a new type of therapy, called DBT, which aims to help young

:05:06.:05:08.

people who frequently self-harm or have attempted suicide.

:05:09.:05:11.

The treatment programme runs for up to a year and works on a new way

:05:12.:05:15.

of addressing emotional crisis, using therapies such as distress

:05:16.:05:18.

We do distress tolerance where we have skills like the Tip

:05:19.:05:26.

skills where you do things like temperature, so you have

:05:27.:05:30.

a change of temperature. So you could have a really cold bath

:05:31.:05:34.

or shower and it brings a different sensation.

:05:35.:05:38.

The programme costs between ?70,000 and ?100,000 a year.

:05:39.:05:45.

Historically, these are the kinds of young people who come to CAMHS

:05:46.:05:49.

who end up coming to A multiple times, who end up being admitted

:05:50.:05:52.

to inpatient units for long stays. They might end up being transferred

:05:53.:05:56.

to adult mental health services when they turn 18.

:05:57.:06:00.

So hopefully, this is going to stop some of those things happening

:06:01.:06:03.

A busy golf practice range in Reading is to be

:06:04.:06:13.

closed down next month - much to the frustration

:06:14.:06:15.

The privately run facility is on land owned by the council,

:06:16.:06:20.

and it's exercised its right to end the lease early.

:06:21.:06:23.

Even on a dreary January week day, the Leaderboard

:06:24.:06:31.

It is a place golfers of all ages and abilities come to practice.

:06:32.:06:37.

Operated by the same firm for almost two decades.

:06:38.:06:40.

The lease was renewed only a year ago, but without warning,

:06:41.:06:42.

Reading Council announced last month it was ending the agreement early.

:06:43.:06:46.

I think people are just surprised and disappointed because there isn't

:06:47.:06:48.

another range anywhere near in Reading.

:06:49.:06:51.

I don't think there was any consultation about this

:06:52.:06:56.

This is one of the new attractions Reading Council plans to put here.

:06:57.:07:02.

A high ropes adventure climbing facility, together

:07:03.:07:05.

with archery, laser shooting and ironically, minigolf.

:07:06.:07:10.

There will also be a new outdoor education and activity classroom.

:07:11.:07:13.

In these days of obviously budget constraints for all councils,

:07:14.:07:21.

we have to make the best use of our assets and that is what we're

:07:22.:07:24.

doing here, we are putting in an activity centre that we think

:07:25.:07:27.

will be fantastic for children and families and also relocating

:07:28.:07:31.

our play service which will both save the Council money and also

:07:32.:07:34.

It is thought that most of the small number of staff will be made

:07:35.:07:40.

redundant when Leaderboard closes in three weeks' time.

:07:41.:07:42.

Now time for the weather with Dan Downs.

:07:43.:07:45.

Our weather turning more unsettled as we head towards the weekend.

:07:46.:07:51.

This morning started off drier and brighter and rather

:07:52.:07:54.

crisp for many of us, as this as Weather Watcher

:07:55.:07:57.

picture from Chris shows. It has been clouding over since then

:07:58.:07:59.

and it continues to cloud up during the afternoon.

:08:00.:08:02.

Some patchy rain moving up from the south.

:08:03.:08:04.

We have a weather front crossing during the next 24 hours

:08:05.:08:09.

which will draw up some showers from the south.

:08:10.:08:11.

Particularly western areas, into Dorset, seeing those showers

:08:12.:08:14.

Quite patchy in nature but spreading to more parts later on.

:08:15.:08:19.

And into the night, it stays rather cloudy and damp

:08:20.:08:22.

Temperature-wise, today, we're looking at highs of around 8,

:08:23.:08:27.

So quite a grey evening, some low cloud around,

:08:28.:08:32.

that rain continuing to spread during the evening to

:08:33.:08:34.

As you would expect, under that cloud, temperatures

:08:35.:08:39.

tonight not dipping much below 4 or 5 degrees.

:08:40.:08:42.

Still some showers initially but gradually things start

:08:43.:08:46.

to improve from the west and become drier and brighter,

:08:47.:08:49.

with some sunshine at times in the afternoon, perhaps.

:08:50.:08:51.

But always a chance of some showers and they could be heavy and perhaps

:08:52.:08:55.

even thundery at times. Feeling that much milder tomorrow,

:08:56.:08:57.

temperatures reaching highs of 8 or 9 Celsius.

:08:58.:08:59.

Beyond that, it stays rather unsettled.

:09:00.:09:01.

Temperatures into double figures by the start of next week.

:09:02.:09:06.

Some rain around for much of Sunday and then it continues to be

:09:07.:09:10.

unsettled into the first part of next week as well.

:09:11.:09:12.

The next regional news will be at 6.30pm.

:09:13.:09:46.

The FA Cup fourth round, next weekend, across the BBC.

:09:47.:10:04.

It's incredible, the changes that have occurred in just 50 years.

:10:05.:10:06.

Oh, my goodness me, I don't like the look of that.

:10:07.:10:08.

The Robshaws are going back in time again...

:10:09.:10:10.

Feel a little bit overwhelmed at the moment.

:10:11.:10:15.

How people did this every day, I don't know.

:10:16.:10:20.

Calf's head. Leave the teeth out of it, won't you?

:10:21.:10:23.
