Welcome to Spotlight. that power.

:00:00.:00:00.

Did his Ukranian wife arrange his murder?

:00:00.:00:09.

Barry Pring was hit by a speeding vehicle in Kiev.

:00:10.:00:12.

An inquest has heard his wife was probably involved

:00:13.:00:15.

It's two years behind schedule and has already cost ?11 million.

:00:16.:00:37.

The row turned legal dispute over this Somerset road to nowhere.

:00:38.:00:40.

Living and working further apart - the new research

:00:41.:00:42.

showing the lengths people are going to during their daily commute.

:00:43.:00:44.

And how do you protect gorillas from the cold?

:00:45.:00:47.

This is part of its comfort zone, and they are a bit wimpy when it

:00:48.:00:56.

comes to cold weather. A verdict of unlawful killing has

:00:57.:01:14.

been recorded into the death of a Devon millionaire whose family

:01:15.:01:17.

are convinced his wife was involved Barry Pring was killed by a speeding

:01:18.:01:19.

vehicle in Ukraine nine years ago. The inquest heard how his best man

:01:20.:01:25.

was in no doubt Mr Pring's wife arranged or was complicit

:01:26.:01:29.

in his death. From the inquest in Exeter,

:01:30.:01:30.

Anna Varle reports. It has been a nine-year battle

:01:31.:01:35.

for the Pring family to find out But does today's verdict

:01:36.:01:38.

give them any comfort? The conclusion today

:01:39.:01:50.

was what we expected. However, that conclusion still isn't

:01:51.:01:51.

going to get justice for Barry, because the person that murdered him

:01:52.:01:54.

is a free person. The 47-year-old had been celebrating

:01:55.:02:06.

his first wedding anniversary He was with his wife and former

:02:07.:02:08.

stripper, Ganna Ziuzina. The couple heard how the inquest

:02:09.:02:12.

heard how the couple had left the restaurant and the couple

:02:13.:02:15.

were trying to hail a cab. Ganna Ziuzina

:02:16.:02:18.

turned back to try and fetch a glove, and then Barry was hit

:02:19.:02:21.

by a car travelling at speed, The coroner said Barry Pring had

:02:22.:02:25.

been tricked into standing on a westbound carriageway,

:02:26.:02:28.

which was the wrong Despite the verdict of unlawful

killing, Devon and Cornwall Police have no jurisdiction

:02:31.:02:33.

to take it further. As far as Devon and Cornwall Police

:02:34.:02:35.

is concerned, it has always been We have no jurisdiction,

:02:36.:02:38.

we can't get any jurisdiction We are just hopeful

:02:39.:02:42.

that the Ukrainian authorities will pick up the verdict

:02:43.:02:46.

from the coroner and can take further action back in the

:02:47.:02:56.

Ukraine. The family, however,

:02:57.:02:58.

vowed to continue the fight. Does this give you any

:02:59.:03:00.

closure at all? And we will keep fighting until we

:03:01.:03:02.

get justice. It's more than two years behind

:03:03.:03:08.

schedule, there's still no date for it to open and it could cost local

:03:09.:03:15.

council tax payers ?10 million. The new relief road in Taunton has

:03:16.:03:21.

suffered a number of technical delays and now the council

:03:22.:03:24.

and the contractor are locked

:03:25.:03:26.

in a bitter legal dispute. Our Somerset Correspondent Clinton

:03:27.:03:27.

Rogers has the latest. It remains the road to nowhere,

:03:28.:03:33.

already two years behind schedule, I think people are getting

:03:34.:03:36.

a bit fed up with it, That would sort them

:03:37.:03:41.

out, wouldn't it? The mile-long road on the northern

:03:42.:03:48.

side of Taunton is designed to ease congestion in a town with its fair

:03:49.:03:52.

share of traffic jams. But this project has been beset

:03:53.:03:56.

by technical difficulties, not least because of the construction

:03:57.:03:59.

of a new bridge. I'm telling them to get

:04:00.:04:02.

workers out here and get And this week for the first time

:04:03.:04:05.

the county council, which has already

:04:06.:04:14.

paid more than ?11 million Whenever this road finally

:04:15.:04:15.

does open, the question is - who is responsible

:04:16.:04:20.

for all the technical problems, all the delays and who is going

:04:21.:04:24.

to pick up the bill which The fact is, both sides

:04:25.:04:27.

are blaming one another, the council and the contractor,

:04:28.:04:31.

and it is a row that has become now a formal legal dispute and the loser

could be faced with a very big bill indeed, I am told in

excess of ?10 million. The contractor Carillion

:04:39.:04:45.

is refusing interviews The council is adamant -

:04:46.:04:47.

we're not paying a penny piece more. I have a duty to defend

:04:48.:05:01.

the council tax payer pound and I will do my best

:05:02.:05:03.

to protect that. They want extra money -

:05:04.:05:07.

I'm not a charitable person, So now lawyers are involved

:05:08.:05:09.

in a dispute which could yet go to the courts and of course push up

:05:10.:05:16.

the final bill even higher The economic dominance of our cities

:05:17.:05:20.

has been highlighted once again in a report showing thousands more

:05:21.:05:31.

commuters are heading into Exeter every day

:05:32.:05:33.

and from even further away. Experts say a number of people

:05:34.:05:37.

are simply prepared to make longer journeys to work,

:05:38.:05:40.

while others have no choice. The hustle and bustle, the large

:05:41.:05:56.

stores and modern buildings that crowd round the new bus station.

:05:57.:06:00.

This was Exeter in the 1970s, but it seems, 40 years later,

:06:01.:06:03.

the city is still a huge draw for workers.

:06:04.:06:05.

Harriet Bradshaw has been following one commuter

:06:06.:06:06.

And Jules Denning is on her way to work from Exmouth.

:06:07.:06:18.

This is me, a quick morning, grab the things I need,

:06:19.:06:21.

make a cup of tea and dash out the door.

:06:22.:06:26.

It is roughly 12 miles to Exeter but traffic can slow things down.

:06:27.:06:31.

My longest journey was two hours and 15 minutes door to door.

:06:32.:06:34.

Would you ever consider moving into the city?

:06:35.:06:37.

I think for me personally the housing would have to be

:06:38.:06:42.

it would have to be the right type of housing.

:06:43.:06:48.

And she's not the only one making a journey.

:06:49.:06:52.

New research that looks at our patterns of travelling

:06:53.:06:55.

into work has shown that now more than ever people are travelling

:06:56.:06:58.

Analysis by planning consultancy Barton Willmore shows, in the space

:06:59.:07:09.

of ten years, the number of in-commuters to the city has

:07:10.:07:11.

I commute from Chagford which is just on the edge

:07:12.:07:16.

and I live near Chagford because of the beauty of the area.

:07:17.:07:22.

I work in the city centre of Exeter, live in Exmouth by the sea,

:07:23.:07:26.

wouldn't live in the city centre, love the sea, so I need

:07:27.:07:29.

But attracting more people means busier roads.

:07:30.:07:31.

Now academics, councils and businesses are working

:07:32.:07:34.

We need to take the opportunity we've got with this research to say,

:07:35.:07:42.

actually, there are really practical ways we can help people

:07:43.:07:45.

make better decisions about their travel behaviour,

:07:46.:07:50.

alongside taking that strategic view about how we plan the city,

:07:51.:07:53.

where we put housing and constantly thinking about how will people

:07:54.:07:58.

travel when we build new housing developments?

:07:59.:07:59.

And this research into changing travel behaviours includes looking

:08:00.:08:09.

into more focused weather forecasts to encourage cycling.

:08:10.:08:14.

Simon Prescott is a planning consultant who works

:08:15.:08:18.

for the company which carried out the research in Exeter.

:08:19.:08:20.

I asked him why more people were travelling into the city.

:08:21.:08:28.

Most trips seem to be related to people travelling to work. We

:08:29.:08:36.

plotted where people are starting their commute, and finishing their

:08:37.:08:40.

commute, and it looks as though there is a 45% increase in

:08:41.:08:46.

travelling to Exeter over 20 kilometres so it looks as though

:08:47.:08:50.

people are travelling much further to get to their day job. Anyone who

:08:51.:08:55.

drives into Exeter on a regular basis will know how congested it

:08:56.:09:01.

gets. How much impact does this idea of people driving much further from

:09:02.:09:05.

out in the outlying areas to go to work in Exeter, contribute to the

:09:06.:09:07.

ongoing congestion problems in the city? Over a 10-year period, there

:09:08.:09:13.

were over 8000 new journeys coming in from surrounding Exeter into

:09:14.:09:21.

Exeter. Probably lots of those people sit on the roads thinking

:09:22.:09:25.

that all of those cars are entering the traffic jam. It is a big issue.

:09:26.:09:32.

Taking this information into account, what the City Council

:09:33.:09:34.

officials and the surrounding areas need to consider, in terms of

:09:35.:09:39.

managing this constant growth of people living in one place and

:09:40.:09:43.

driving, everyday into the centre of Exeter? It is a very timely

:09:44.:09:49.

question. Exeter City Council and the surrounding three authorities

:09:50.:09:53.

have started work on a joint plan looking forward to 2040, to try to

:09:54.:09:59.

identify how many new homes and jobs they need and where they are going

:10:00.:10:04.

to be located. They need to take into account commuting patterns and

:10:05.:10:08.

make sure that the plan properly for the infrastructure of road, rail and

:10:09.:10:13.

the bus system, otherwise, existing problems are going to get much

:10:14.:10:14.

worse. just short commutes -

:10:15.:10:24.

some of you are driving very Chris says I work for an IT company

:10:25.:10:26.

in Newbury and mostly work If I need to commute in its 400

:10:27.:10:30.

miles in total and takes 3.5 hours. Colin emailed to say,

:10:31.:10:35.

I travel each day to work from Liskeard in Cornwall,

:10:36.:10:37.

to Bridgwater in Somerset. A daily round trip of 202 miles. And

:10:38.:10:40.

on Facebook Katherine told us - I travel from south-east Cornwall

:10:41.:10:44.

to Plymouth every day. My husband travels to London

:10:45.:10:47.

for work every week because there is no work for him

:10:48.:10:49.

in Devon or Cornwall. A fit-for-purpose train line

:10:50.:10:51.

would be a godsend. And Fay says -

:10:52.:10:54.

I used to work nationally. Regularly drove 700

:10:55.:10:56.

plus miles per week. But when I was made redundant

:10:57.:10:58.

it was a chance to make changes. I'm fitter, I'm happier

:10:59.:11:01.

and I have more time. I would definitely think twice

:11:02.:11:05.

before going back to long commutes. Thanks for all your comments -

:11:06.:11:08.

keep them coming. Those are the addresses to get in

growing regional airport. Last year more than a third

of airlines have increased Campaigners in North Devon

:12:01.:12:01.

who are fighting to save their two theatres are calling on

:12:02.:12:08.

the local council to help. and the Landmark in Ilfracombe went

:12:09.:12:15.

into administration yesterday. North Devon Council is blaming

:12:16.:12:17.

falling ticket sales It says it gave the trust more

:12:18.:12:19.

than ?300,000 this financial year. The doors are closed now but these

:12:20.:12:38.

campaigners want them back open, and soon. This woman performed that

:12:39.:12:45.

theatre in Barnstaple last week. I feel heartbroken by the news. It is

:12:46.:12:51.

so sad that it is all going to be gone and this makes people like me

:12:52.:12:55.

inspired and able to dream big and I don't want to play just another

:12:56.:13:01.

nightclub. This and the Landmark Theatre in Ilfracombe have gone into

:13:02.:13:06.

administration. There are calls for the local council to step in. They

:13:07.:13:12.

don't have the money, we understand that, but we believe there is a

:13:13.:13:16.

viable future for these theatres and as North Devon council owned theatre

:13:17.:13:20.

buildings, that we can come to a solution. We are pleading with the

:13:21.:13:24.

council to work with us and the administrator to find a way to get

:13:25.:13:29.

doors open again. The North Devon to distrust blamed falling sales and a

:13:30.:13:33.

cut in public subsidy from the local council for its financial problems.

:13:34.:13:40.

These closures leave the plough arts Centre in great Torrington as the

:13:41.:13:43.

last art centre for miles around. It's a rise of just ?9,000 a year in

:13:44.:13:48.

public funding. Many organisations have been on a journey of weaning

:13:49.:13:53.

themselves off public funding out of necessity and it is a journey that

:13:54.:13:55.

some have made more successfully than others. If you have got two big

:13:56.:14:01.

theatres with big overheads it is difficult to say that you will cover

:14:02.:14:04.

that from the box office. It was or was gone to need some sort of

:14:05.:14:07.

support. As a society we should be supporting the arts. If you go to

:14:08.:14:11.

other countries, they support the arts, phenomenally. The subsidy to

:14:12.:14:17.

support the favours from the castle was over ?300,000. The council says

:14:18.:14:21.

that it is facing financial pressure and needs to save money. It would

:14:22.:14:26.

not comment further whilst the administration process is ongoing,

:14:27.:14:29.

leaving campaigners waiting for a verdict on the theatres' future.

:14:30.:14:34.

What makes a good B? Stay with us to find out

:14:35.:14:37.

why this one has been voted the best in the world.

:14:38.:14:40.

The African silverbacks trying to cope with the Devon cold.

:14:41.:14:56.

We're looking forward to that one, aren't we?

:14:57.:14:59.

We both love cooking and try to use up leftovers.

:15:00.:15:01.

Well, a charity which cooks meals using food thrown out by businesses

:15:02.:15:04.

and supermarkets has been so successful, it's now expanding.

:15:05.:15:06.

The Real Junk Food Project set up in April last year and has fed

:15:07.:15:09.

hundreds of people in Plymouth and South East Cornwall.

:15:10.:15:12.

Well now it's looking to develop the idea and has launched

:15:13.:15:14.

a fundraising campaign for a permanent base.

:15:15.:15:16.

Emma Thomasson has been to see how it works

:15:17.:15:28.

Tucking in, but this is no ordinary lunch. Everything he was destined

:15:29.:15:33.

for the bin. How about asparagus soup? Beef ragout, with potatoes,

:15:34.:15:39.

for the big apple charlotte and custard. It has been made from food

:15:40.:15:44.

donated by supermarkets that they could not sell before its best

:15:45.:15:49.

before date. What we do is very inclusive, doesn't matter what the

:15:50.:15:53.

circumstances are, your welcome to eat with us, and when you pay you

:15:54.:15:56.

can pay with the money donation or you can pay with your time or

:15:57.:16:00.

skills. People volunteer, do some washing up, some deliveries, and

:16:01.:16:06.

there is an exchange in that way. It works really well. The one some

:16:07.:16:11.

salad or veg? Jese heads a team of volunteers going round Plymouth and

:16:12.:16:15.

Southeast or -- South East Cornwall, cooking. The food is prepared in her

:16:16.:16:20.

own kitchen then transported around churches, toddler groups and even

:16:21.:16:28.

their pub. But is it any good? Oh, yes, the meat is lovely and tender.

:16:29.:16:33.

Yes, everything was just wonderful. Me and my husband have always

:16:34.:16:37.

worked. And we struggle ourselves, but I make everything go round. I do

:16:38.:16:42.

not waste, I don't throw out, if I can use it I use it, and a lot of

:16:43.:16:48.

other people do at home as well. I was thinking about the meals that I

:16:49.:16:51.

do for my four-year-old boy and how much ends up being left at the end

:16:52.:16:59.

of the meal, sometimes four or five carats and you add that up and that

:17:00.:17:03.

is a lot of food wastage. It has changed my thinking today. And he is

:17:04.:17:09.

not alone. The project has been so popular, a second team is now

:17:10.:17:16.

working in Torpoint and Jesse is working to set up a permanent base

:17:17.:17:23.

near Liskeard with plans for Linton and Falmouth. The government says 8

:17:24.:17:26.

million tonnes of food is wasted every year, which equates to ?16

:17:27.:17:30.

billion simply being thrown in the bin. This project hopes the work it

:17:31.:17:35.

is doing, however small, will go some way towards tackling the

:17:36.:17:40.

problem. It is lovely. It did look good, didn't it?

:17:41.:17:46.

Now, we had images of Exeter's past earlier in the programme

:17:47.:17:48.

and here's another familiar sight of the South West from the archives.

:17:49.:17:51.

House after house on road after road offering bed and breakfast.

:17:52.:17:54.

But the traditional guest house has been changing.

:17:55.:17:56.

Many are still offering the full English breakfast,

:17:57.:17:58.

with customers expecting a more upmarket atmosphere.

:17:59.:18:05.

Tourism leaders say the move towards the boutique hotel has been

:18:06.:18:07.

key in driving the industry forward and one guest house in Dorset is now

:18:08.:18:11.

reaping the rewards with major recognition.

:18:12.:18:12.

It is a bitterly cold day in Dorset, but this place has the warmest

:18:13.:18:27.

welcome in the world. And that is official. We are writing down phone

:18:28.:18:36.

messages. Quite a few e-mails have come in. Clive and Lisa Orchard say

:18:37.:18:39.

that they are amazed to have been named the best B on the planet for

:18:40.:18:45.

the second time. It means a lot. It means that our guests have thanked

:18:46.:18:50.

us for their stay. We were just very shocked and very happy, obviously.

:18:51.:18:54.

What were you doing before you decided to move down to Dorset and

:18:55.:18:59.

open a B? We had a clothes shop in West wittering. I was working in

:19:00.:19:06.

data communications near Reading. Eventually we sold the shop and saw

:19:07.:19:10.

the Data Communications Bill 's less and we chose a bed and breakfast as

:19:11.:19:16.

being a nice lifestyle. This is a Thomas Hardy room. From the guest

:19:17.:19:20.

reviews on TripAdvisor it is clear that this B offers more than just

:19:21.:19:24.

clean sheets and pulling this. They think that Dorset is beautiful, and

:19:25.:19:28.

it is not difficult to share that with people. When I was six or

:19:29.:19:35.

seven, my sister taught me to swim in this area. So, for that reason, I

:19:36.:19:40.

think that is what makes it very personal to me. You won the award in

:19:41.:19:46.

2014 and in 2017. For the two years in between, what went wrong? We

:19:47.:19:55.

relaxed! We genuinely just think of the B as an extension of our homes

:19:56.:19:59.

anyway. That was our commitment when we started, just to be ourselves and

:20:00.:20:05.

wanting people to share the area. Whatever their secret, it has sent

:20:06.:20:12.

Bindon Bottom to the top of the world's B destinations.

:20:13.:20:16.

Now the weather recently has been quite chilly with frosty nights

:20:17.:20:18.

and cold mornings and for many of us that means wrapping up

:20:19.:20:22.

or you could put your heating on!

:20:23.:20:27.

But if, like some of the animals at a Devon zoo,

:20:28.:20:30.

you're used to much warmer climates, how do you cope?

:20:31.:20:34.

Well the keepers at Paignton Zoo have been feeding them hot potatoes,

:20:35.:20:37.

as Spotlight's John Danks found out.

:20:38.:20:41.

These flamingos have the right idea, keeping their heads down during the

:20:42.:20:47.

icy weather. With temperatures not climbing much above zero in

:20:48.:20:51.

sheltered areas, some animosity turned their backs to the court.

:20:52.:20:54.

That is why at Paignton Zoo they are dishing out hot potatoes to the

:20:55.:20:59.

guerrillas. It's very cold at the moment and the guerrillas with the

:21:00.:21:02.

love hot potatoes. In weather like this it is nice for them to have

:21:03.:21:05.

something hot to warm them up a little bit. These western lowland

:21:06.:21:11.

gorillas are native to Africa. Weighing around 200 kilograms, the

:21:12.:21:15.

powerful primates are kings of the jungle, but here at Paignton Zoo...

:21:16.:21:21.

With the guerrillas and the orangutans, they are happy going

:21:22.:21:24.

outside when it is a bit colder. The guerrillas will have a nice, heated

:21:25.:21:29.

house outside, so in weather like this they tend to spend a lot more

:21:30.:21:34.

time inside. We try to get them out as much as possible to get some

:21:35.:21:38.

fresh air and sunshine, but it does tend to be food that gets them out

:21:39.:21:40.

when it is not so nice like this. In when it is not so nice like this. In

:21:41.:21:46.

the aviary, these noisy tropical birds are spending the winter

:21:47.:21:53.

indoors. No jacket spuds required. The birds are lucky, because they

:21:54.:21:57.

get shut away in nice, warm houses with heating on. It is the

:21:58.:22:00.

zookeepers who suffer the most because they come in in the morning

:22:01.:22:04.

and the padlocks are frozen, their hands are frozen, they have two melt

:22:05.:22:11.

ice, hosepipes are full of eyes, so they are far worse off than the

:22:12.:22:18.

birds. It is a year-round job for the keepers, making sure that the

:22:19.:22:22.

animals are well looked after. A hot potato to keep away the cold seems

:22:23.:22:27.

to be doing the job. Sadly for the guerrillas, there is no prospect of

:22:28.:22:35.

chips being served, just yet! -- Paignton Zoo -- gorillas. We've had

:22:36.:22:40.

lots of reaction to this story about commuting. Many of you have told us

:22:41.:22:45.

about your long journeys to work. Graham has e-mail to say, I commute

:22:46.:22:53.

48,000 miles every year, just passed my 500,000 miles mark, from

:22:54.:23:00.

Ivybridge to Bristol, daily. Martin says, I travelled from Dunster in

:23:01.:23:03.

Somerset to London for work every day. I now work from home which

:23:04.:23:09.

means I am permanently on my wife's nerves! I'm sure that is not true at

:23:10.:23:14.

all. Thank you for your e-mails, keep them coming in. It is time for

:23:15.:23:19.

the weather forecast. Is it jacket potato weather, David? There is some

:23:20.:23:23.

good news in the forecast. It is not quite as

:23:24.:23:29.

cold. It is slightly less cold. That is the best way to describe it. You

:23:30.:23:33.

have to wait until Friday before that happens. Tomorrow and Thursday

:23:34.:23:39.

is going to be pretty chilly. Tonight, another frosty night with

:23:40.:23:43.

some fog patches already forming. More of that come overnight. A cold

:23:44.:23:48.

wind tomorrow, with the breeze picking up steadily, helping to

:23:49.:23:53.

will have some sunshine, perhaps will have some sunshine, perhaps

:23:54.:23:57.

even more sunshine than we saw today, because we have this strip of

:23:58.:24:02.

cloud covering much of the of England. That layer of cloud has

:24:03.:24:05.

produced a few showers in North Devon and up into the south Wales.

:24:06.:24:10.

The main rain bearing cloud is out here to the west. This is a bit

:24:11.:24:15.

closer than it has been. It is gradually moving towards us as the

:24:16.:24:19.

high pressure begins to weaken. What is actually happening is we are

:24:20.:24:23.

squeezing the isobars, so there's more of a breeze developing. The

:24:24.:24:27.

breeze continuing to increase and, overnight tonight and into Thursday,

:24:28.:24:31.

we have a cold when coming in from the South East, head of this line-up

:24:32.:24:37.

patchy rain, and drawing in some very low temperatures from central

:24:38.:24:41.

Europe. They have had it bitterly cold over the last few days. And

:24:42.:24:45.

that cold air reaches us on Thursday. So although we have more

:24:46.:24:49.

of a breeze, if anything it will feel even called on Thursday. Friday

:24:50.:24:54.

is hit and miss but there's a weather front coming in on Friday

:24:55.:24:58.

that will change things. It will introduce slightly less cold air. It

:24:59.:25:01.

might introduce some outbreaks of rain as well, although the detail on

:25:02.:25:08.

that is elusive at the moment. That cold air comes across from the other

:25:09.:25:13.

side of the channel and through Thursday not only will be have low

:25:14.:25:15.

temperatures but with the strength of the wind it is going to feel

:25:16.:25:21.

bitterly cold. It will feel like -1, -2, so wrap up warm if you're out

:25:22.:25:26.

and about on Thursday. This layer of belt has produced some showers and

:25:27.:25:31.

clouded the skies over a good part of the South West. This was earlier

:25:32.:25:40.

today in Quantock. For the servers, the waves have been quite

:25:41.:25:45.

attractive. A pretty good day for many beaches over the last couple of

:25:46.:25:49.

days. The sea temperature at the moment is around nine, 10 degrees.

:25:50.:25:54.

The waves will increase over the next couple of days as you see the

:25:55.:25:59.

South West winds increasing. What's going out in the Atlantic that will

:26:00.:26:05.

help our surfers, producing some fairly sizeable waves. Tonight

:26:06.:26:11.

across the eastern parts of Somerset and Dorset, we will have thick,

:26:12.:26:14.

freezing fog. If you are travelling out of the region, if you're one of

:26:15.:26:18.

these long-distance commuters we have been talking about heading

:26:19.:26:22.

towards London, especially, you're going to run into some very thick

:26:23.:26:27.

fog and it is dangerous stuff, because it's also freezing fog. More

:26:28.:26:32.

of a breeze in the second half of the night, keeping the thick fog at

:26:33.:26:37.

bay. It will be a cold night with a range of temperatures. The fog is

:26:38.:26:41.

going to be patchy with temperatures anywhere from zero up to four

:26:42.:26:46.

Celsius. Tomorrow, Misty and foggy in the east, but foremost, a better

:26:47.:26:49.

day with sunshine with wind increasing. The breeze will continue

:26:50.:26:58.

to increase in most of the day in Cornwall. And it will lift

:26:59.:27:04.

temperatures up to 9 degrees, but further east, temperatures not doing

:27:05.:27:08.

quite so well. That's the forecast for the Isles of Scilly, right and

:27:09.:27:13.

windy. And the times of high water... -- bright and windy.

:27:14.:27:22.

And the coastal waters forecast... That's all from me. Have a good

:27:23.:27:31.

evening. Looks like we're going to need more hot potatoes at the zoo on

:27:32.:27:36.

Thursday. That's all from us. We'll have an update at 10:30pm. From all

:27:37.:27:43.

of us here, have a good evening. Good night.

:27:44.:27:55.

You might get the impression that history is just a record

:27:56.:27:58.

Very often, the line between fact and fiction

:27:59.:28:04.

In this series, I'm exploring how three turning points in our history

:28:05.:28:11.

have been manipulated to become our greatest historical legends.

:28:12.:28:25.

I want to be entertained. Entertain me.

:28:26.:28:29.

It's the last chance to impress the judges.
