That's all from the BBC News at Six.

0:00:000:00:02

Welcome to Spotlight.

0:00:020:00:03

Tonight, a 12-year-old victim

of online grooming speaks out

0:00:030:00:06

to help protect others.

0:00:060:00:14

I felt scared and I slipped it. He

put me under pressure and he got

0:00:140:00:20

angry and aggressive. -- and

isolated.

0:00:200:00:24

We'll hear the devastating impact it

had on her and her family

0:00:240:00:27

and talk to the NSPCC.

0:00:270:00:28

Also in the programme tonight -

will a huge hotel scheme

0:00:280:00:30

be ready in time for

Plymouth's Mayflower celebrations?

0:00:300:00:33

The ambitious plans

for Drake's Island may not be

0:00:330:00:35

finished in three years' time

but as you'll see later

0:00:350:00:38

developers aren't worried.

0:00:380:00:39

Nowhere to go until the New Year -

why the closure of Torbay's toilets

0:00:390:00:42

for people with disabilities

is forcing some women

0:00:420:00:44

to take drastic action.

0:00:440:00:49

We'll go to the gents but I think

that toilets here should be open.

0:00:490:00:52

Ladies need them more

than men and I think

0:00:520:00:55

it's absolutely disgusting.

0:00:550:00:56

And the maiden voyage -

0:00:560:00:57

the students making waves

with the boats they've taken

0:00:570:00:59

eight months to build.

0:00:590:01:09

A 12-year-old Devon girl has spoken

out over the dangers of online

0:01:190:01:22

grooming after she was blackmailed

into sending intimate

0:01:220:01:25

pictures over the internet.

0:01:250:01:27

Her parents say the experience

has been devastating

0:01:270:01:29

and want to speak out to help

protect other young people.

0:01:290:01:32

In a moment we'll ask the NSPCC

charity about the scale of these

0:01:320:01:36

incidents and how to help children

deal with online abuse.

0:01:360:01:39

First this report from Clare Casson.

0:01:390:01:43

Just a few stolen moments

on the daily walk to school.

0:01:430:01:46

No parents, no teachers,

but do you know who your child

0:01:460:01:50

is contacting on their phone?

0:01:510:01:53

For this 12-year-old,

a few minutes on her own each day

0:01:530:01:57

opened up a murky world

of sexual exploitation.

0:01:570:02:01

He began talking to me

so I befriended him, not knowing

0:02:010:02:04

what was about to happen.

0:02:040:02:06

I felt scared and like

I couldn't talk to anyone.

0:02:060:02:10

This person then showed her some

explicit images of other young girls

0:02:100:02:13

and told her if she didn't do

what they asked, they would spread

0:02:130:02:17

it amongst friends and family,

tell the world that

0:02:170:02:19

these images were her.

0:02:190:02:23

After I sent one picture,

I knew that I was trapped.

0:02:230:02:27

I felt scared and isolated.

0:02:270:02:30

He put me under pressure and he got

angry and aggressive.

0:02:300:02:35

It breaks my heart that there

was about three or four months

0:02:350:02:38

that I didn't know about,

she had been held prisoner.

0:02:380:02:41

It must've been soul destroying

for her to feel so trapped.

0:02:410:02:45

And this girl is not alone.

0:02:450:02:48

Across Devon and Cornwall, sexting,

as it is known, is now the most

0:02:480:02:51

common form of child sexual

exploitation the police deal with.

0:02:510:02:55

Officers go into schools

to try to help educate young people

0:02:550:02:58

about the dangers but they've

told me it's a struggle to keep up

0:02:580:03:02

with what's happening

and the average age of victims

0:03:020:03:05

is getting younger.

0:03:050:03:07

We are certainly seeing either

a greater disclosure of incidents

0:03:070:03:12

with younger children or a greater

number of younger children doing it.

0:03:120:03:17

About ten years ago it

would be pretty unheard-of

0:03:170:03:19

that we would visit a primary school

and they would be talking

0:03:190:03:23

about dealing with this sort

of an event - now we do deal

0:03:230:03:26

with them increasingly.

0:03:260:03:27

And many children don't realise that

it's illegal to possess,

0:03:270:03:31

take or distribute sexual images

of someone under 18,

0:03:310:03:35

including themselves.

0:03:350:03:41

This family just want to make other

young people are aware of the

0:03:410:03:44

dangers.

Having your daughter feels

so scared and worried that there is

0:03:440:03:50

no way out other than to do

something stranger told her to do

0:03:500:03:54

was scary and you hear stories of

people self harming or committing

0:03:540:03:59

suicide. We could have easily found

ourselves in a situation where she

0:03:590:04:04

felt she had no way out, but I'm

glad she was able to get the courage

0:04:040:04:09

to speak to us about it.

Michelle

Currier is from the NSPCC. We have

0:04:090:04:17

reported on this issue before and

there have been campaigns about it

0:04:170:04:21

but it still seems to be getting

worse. What needs to happen to

0:04:210:04:25

tackle this?

I think the most

important thing is that parents have

0:04:250:04:32

an open dialogue with their children

from a young age, for them to bring

0:04:320:04:38

it into their conversation so that

the child knows they can go to their

0:04:380:04:43

parents and talk about anything that

might be happening online.

What is

0:04:430:04:48

the right age to do that? As we

heard there, victims are getting

0:04:480:04:53

younger and younger.

As soon as your

child is accessing any kind of

0:04:530:04:59

online device, do have those

age-appropriate conversations so

0:04:590:05:03

they know they can talk to their

parents about these things.

How do

0:05:030:05:09

you sit down and tell them in a way

that isn't going to frighten them

0:05:090:05:13

but will get the message across?

It's about how parents talk to their

0:05:130:05:19

children about the physical world

and how they would talk to them

0:05:190:05:22

about dangers in a physical sense,

it's doing is that about the online

0:05:220:05:27

world in a way not to scare them but

make them aware of the dangers, of

0:05:270:05:31

the fact that you cannot always be

sure who you're talking to online

0:05:310:05:35

and to make sure they know they have

to be careful who they are making

0:05:350:05:41

friends with and talking to online.

We heard the father says he was

0:05:410:05:47

horrified and heartbroken that his

daughter was suffering this for

0:05:470:05:50

three or four months. What are the

signs to look out for four apparent

0:05:500:05:54

to know their child may be going

through something similar?

If they

0:05:540:05:59

see a change of behaviour, there are

more withdrawn, keep aware of when

0:05:590:06:05

they are using their devices and

there is a lot of information out

0:06:050:06:08

there now and parents can access

information. There is an NSPCC site

0:06:080:06:16

called Net Where which describes the

different sort of social networking

0:06:160:06:22

sites that young people are using

and gives advice about networking

0:06:220:06:26

settings on computers and how to

filter what young people access.

0:06:260:06:31

Thank you for joining us.

0:06:310:06:33

Next tonight, the disturbing story

of a 96-year-old man who's been

0:06:330:06:35

attacked with what's thought to be

a claw hammer by a burglar

0:06:350:06:38

at his home in Taunton.

0:06:380:06:39

He's now in hospital

with serious injuries.

0:06:390:06:41

Lee Madden reports.

0:06:410:06:51

When Tom opened the door, Jim said,

I've been attacked, and that was how

0:06:510:06:55

it started.

He was bleeding all over

his face, we brought him in and

0:06:550:07:01

Saturn in the chair.

You said he had

been knocked on the head with a

0:07:010:07:07

hammer.

He came in here for us to

file for an ambulance.

Police say a

0:07:070:07:15

man knocked at the store yesterday

between 4pm and 5pm and asked if he

0:07:150:07:20

wanted any work doing in the house.

When Mr booth refused, the man

0:07:200:07:26

attacked him with a hammer.

Jim's

son came down last night, he was at

0:07:260:07:32

the hospital and he said he has a

fractured skull and he was with the

0:07:320:07:38

doctor for a fair while and

something about his hand, he had a

0:07:380:07:43

problem because he had a bash on his

hand.

Mr booth is one of the last

0:07:430:07:49

surviving heroes of World War II,

serving as a lieutenant commander in

0:07:490:07:54

the Navy and playing a crucial role

in the D-Day landings. His latest

0:07:540:07:59

battle has seen him take on the man

police are trying to find.

A male

0:07:590:08:06

around 30 or 35, clean-shaven,

darkish hair, described as athletic,

0:08:060:08:11

stocky build, no real accent was

noted and no height was given, and

0:08:110:08:17

he was wearing jeans and dark

clothing.

Mr booth has been well

0:08:170:08:23

known to the BBC. He featured on

Points West two years ago when he

0:08:230:08:28

danced with the Duchess of Cornwall,

saying he was delighted to have

0:08:280:08:32

stolen a dance with her. Tonight

forensic teams are still working at

0:08:320:08:37

his house, looking for clues about

his attacker.

0:08:370:08:41

Some more stories from around

the South West now.

0:08:410:08:43

A shop worker in Tiverton has chased

off a robber armed with a knife

0:08:430:08:46

by giving him a taste

of his own medicine.

0:08:460:08:48

Lorraine McCalliskey

picked up a packing knife

0:08:480:08:50

and charged at the man,

who ran off empty handed.

0:08:500:08:52

Pictures have only just

emerged of the incident,

0:08:520:08:54

which happened two weeks ago.

0:08:540:08:55

The would-be robber had

a Liverpudlian accent.

0:08:550:09:00

A 31-year-old prisoner has been

found dead in Exeter jail -

0:09:000:09:02

the second inmate to die

there in the last month.

0:09:020:09:05

The Prison Service says

there will be an independent

0:09:050:09:07

investigation by the Prisons

and Probation Ombudsman

0:09:070:09:08

into what happened.

0:09:080:09:11

The new Defence Secretary

Gavin Williamson has

0:09:110:09:13

been at Devonport today.

0:09:130:09:17

He's been in private talks

with senior Navy officials over

0:09:170:09:20

the future of the amphibious ships

HMS Bulwark and HMS Albion.

0:09:200:09:22

There are fears both

ships will be axed, along

0:09:220:09:24

with 1000 Royal Marines.

0:09:240:09:26

The MoD has dismissed the reports

as "pure speculation."

0:09:260:09:30

There's anger about plans

by the French company EDF to change

0:09:300:09:33

the way it handles high level

radioactive waste at the Hinkley

0:09:330:09:36

Point reactors in Somerset.

0:09:360:09:39

The company wants to double the size

of a proposed waste store

0:09:390:09:41

on the Hinkley C site.

0:09:410:09:43

It also wants to introduce a system

of encasing the waste in concrete.

0:09:430:09:49

Exeter Chiefs' forward Sam Simmonds

is set to make his first England

0:09:490:09:52

start against Samoa on Saturday.

0:09:520:09:57

The 23-year-old number eight

from Teignmouth was named

0:09:570:09:58

in the starting line-up alongside

team mate Henry Slade with another

0:09:580:10:02

Chief, Harry Williams, on the bench.

0:10:020:10:08

A Devon woman who uses a wheelchair

has described the lack of a public

0:10:080:10:11

toilet for disabled people

in Torquay town centre

0:10:110:10:14

as "disgusting."

0:10:140:10:16

Both the women's toilet block

and the one for disabled people have

0:10:160:10:19

been closed for the last 11 weeks -

and they won't re-open

0:10:190:10:22

before Christmas.

0:10:220:10:23

John Ayres has the story.

0:10:230:10:31

This it's not often that you see

this, the gents opened

0:10:310:10:38

but the ladies and the disabled

toilets are closed, and it's been

0:10:380:10:41

like this for 11 weeks.

0:10:410:10:47

For wheelchair user

surely, enough is enough.

0:10:470:10:48

It's diabolical to think that

you can come into town

0:10:480:10:53

to spend your money

but while you're here you can't

0:10:530:10:55

use the public toilet.

It's not a luxury, it's a necessity.

0:10:550:10:58

You come into town to shop,

you're bound to need to use

0:10:580:11:01

the toilet and I'm sorry but it

will put a lot of people coming

0:11:010:11:04

to the town centre shopping.

0:11:040:11:05

It's a feeling shared by others

with mobility assistance.

0:11:050:11:08

Joan is a tourist from Wales.

0:11:080:11:14

I will go to the gents but I think

the toilets here should be open.

0:11:140:11:18

Ladies need them more than men.

0:11:180:11:19

Men can stand there

and go in the corner

0:11:190:11:21

and I think it's disgusting.

0:11:210:11:23

And she did, along

with some other woman.

0:11:230:11:25

The nearest alternative is some way

away and the closest aren't private

0:11:250:11:27

The nearest alternative is some way

away and the closest are on private

0:11:270:11:30

premises, not public.

0:11:310:11:32

The nearest public loos

are at least twice the distance.

0:11:320:11:34

I have to go in the lift,

providing it's working,

0:11:340:11:36

up through the shop,

past all the other shops along

0:11:360:11:39

the walkway to the bottom,

turn right, turn left and you'll

0:11:390:11:41

find another door that has

the toilets there.

0:11:410:11:45

They should get up and do something,

come out onto the highway and see

0:11:450:11:49

what's going on for themselves

and do something

0:11:490:11:53

instead of doing nothing.

0:11:530:11:56

The toilets had been closed

because of a water leak

0:11:560:11:58

above and an electrical fault.

0:11:580:11:59

The delay is because the council

doesn't own the building.

0:11:590:12:04

I understand the concerns

of all the residents and traders,

0:12:040:12:09

these toilets have been out

of action for so long

0:12:090:12:12

because we haven't got

permission from the landowner

0:12:120:12:14

above the property, we now have

that permission and it's

0:12:140:12:18

being dealt with as a priority.

0:12:180:12:20

The council hopes this will be

sorted in the next nine weeks

0:12:200:12:24

although for many women and people

with disabilities,

0:12:240:12:26

that's still a very long time.

0:12:260:12:34

One of Devon's most ambitious-ever

hotel schemes may not be ready

0:12:340:12:36

for Plymouth's big moment.

0:12:360:12:37

Mayflower 400 is in three years'

time but the people behind a plan

0:12:370:12:41

for Drake's Island say their vision

may take longer than that.

0:12:410:12:46

It's the latest chapter in the long

history of the Island.

0:12:460:12:52

Drake's Island -

or St Nicholas' Isle - sits

0:12:520:12:55

in Plymouth Sound and was first

fortified in the mid 16th century.

0:12:550:12:58

It's named of course

after Sir Francis Drake,

0:12:580:13:00

who used Plymouth as his home port.

0:13:000:13:02

By the time Drake was defeating

the Spanish Armada, the island that

0:13:020:13:04

bore his name was heavily

armed and manned.

0:13:040:13:06

It remained a fortification

for nearly 400 years

0:13:060:13:08

until after World War Two.

0:13:080:13:12

By the 1960s the War Office left it

to Plymouth Council,

0:13:120:13:15

who eventually opened

a youth adventure centre.

0:13:150:13:17

But in the 1990s the island was up

for sale - and it was bought

0:13:170:13:20

22 years ago by Dan McAuley,

a former chairman of

0:13:200:13:23

Plymouth Argyle, who announced

plans to build a hotel.

0:13:230:13:25

In April this year, after more

than two decades of legal

0:13:250:13:28

wrangles and negotiations,

Plymouth councillors finally gave

0:13:280:13:31

the ambitious project

planning permission.

0:13:310:13:34

With this update,

here's our business

0:13:340:13:35

correspondent Neil Gallacher.

0:13:350:13:39

Across the choppy water today,

Drake's Island looked a little less

0:13:390:13:42

accessible than usual.

0:13:420:13:45

And the much vaunted hotel due to be

built here is probably further off

0:13:450:13:49

than some had thought.

0:13:490:13:51

The island owners gave more details

today of their vision,

0:13:510:13:53

which now has planning consent.

0:13:530:13:57

Some sort of limited public access

to the island could be provided

0:13:570:14:00

in the year ahead but unlike some

hotels planned in Plymouth,

0:14:000:14:04

this one looks unlikely to be

open for Mayflower 400.

0:14:040:14:08

That's too much to ask

for but with the phasing

0:14:080:14:11

there could be some facilities

available for 2020.

0:14:110:14:16

Drake's Island is unique and it's

not going to be dependent

0:14:160:14:19

on a particular celebration

or event, it will have longevity

0:14:190:14:23

with what we're trying to create.

0:14:230:14:28

The people behind this

are Dan McAuley's Rotolok Holdings,

0:14:280:14:30

former owners of Plymouth Argyle.

0:14:310:14:32

Today it became clear they had been

persuaded to start looking

0:14:320:14:35

for a commercial partner

from the world of top-flight hotels

0:14:350:14:38

to help make their vision a reality.

0:14:380:14:42

It's a massive investment

for the client to be putting in

0:14:420:14:44

onto Drake's Island,

its many millions of pounds and it

0:14:440:14:48

wants to be there for the future.

0:14:480:14:50

It's not something that

becomes a white elephant

0:14:500:14:52

for the city or for the island.

0:14:520:14:55

Development costs shot up last year

and haven't come down,

0:14:550:14:58

and the kind of economic forecast

unveiled by the Chancellor yesterday

0:14:580:15:01

is pretty challenging,

but the people who own

0:15:010:15:05

Drake's Island are still saying

it's not whether

0:15:050:15:07

they build a hotel there -

it's how and when.

0:15:070:15:14

Later, the moment of truth

for students who've been learning

0:15:220:15:25

the art of boat building.

0:15:260:15:30

And join me later to find out more

about Exeter's hidden treasure, the

0:15:300:15:36

Bill Douglas Cinema Museum, and find

out why they have a special reason

0:15:360:15:40

to celebrate.

0:15:400:15:41

With funding being tight

0:15:410:15:47

in all areas of public life

at the moment, the arts often finds

0:15:470:15:50

itself at the bottom

of the priority list.

0:15:500:15:52

But while some venues have closed,

performers in Ashburton have opened

0:15:520:15:54

a new arts centre in the heart

of the town.

0:15:540:15:57

They raised £180,000

to buy a Grade II listed

0:15:570:15:59

former Methodist Church.

0:15:590:16:01

Our arts reporter Emma Ruminski has

been finding out why

0:16:010:16:03

they think they can succeed

where others have failed.

0:16:030:16:05

SINGING.

0:16:050:16:11

Finally they've got

something to sing about.

0:16:110:16:14

This is why the campaigners behind

Ashburton Arts think they can run

0:16:140:16:17

a successful arts centre

- public support.

0:16:170:16:20

People and local businesses donated

and loaned the organisation money

0:16:200:16:24

to purchase this old Methodist

church and give it a new purpose.

0:16:240:16:29

Live music and drama

is suffering in our schools

0:16:290:16:33

and for the community at large,

and to have that space that can

0:16:330:16:38

provide that right in the centre

of what is a very active artistic

0:16:380:16:44

community here was just too good not

to try and make happen.

0:16:440:16:49

It's been a while since Ashburton

had a performance space.

0:16:490:16:53

The theatre run by an amateur

dramatic society,

0:16:530:16:55

the Buckfast Players,

shut its doors in the '60s.

0:16:550:16:59

It was run on a shoestring

to some extent.

0:16:590:17:03

It was lit by a car battery.

0:17:030:17:06

Now that sounds a bit weird.

0:17:060:17:09

Somewhere we have some photos

showing these various horrific

0:17:090:17:12

and electrical things that they had,

which could have blown anything up

0:17:120:17:17

within five minutes, but it worked.

0:17:170:17:24

But the new arts centre

has to meet modern fire

0:17:240:17:26

regulations if it's to get

a public entertainment licence.

0:17:260:17:29

Once that's achieved,

the main hall will largely remain

0:17:290:17:31

the same but the entrance will be

redeveloped to allow

0:17:310:17:34

everything from live music

to films to be shown here.

0:17:340:17:38

We're right on the A38 corridor

between Exeter and Plymouth

0:17:380:17:40

and the Moor and Torbay are all very

close to us, so I hope that that's

0:17:400:17:47

in our favour and that will help us

to succeed where some

0:17:470:17:50

other places haven't.

0:17:500:17:52

Before the auction, developers

were chasing this building

0:17:520:17:54

to turn it into flats.

0:17:540:17:56

Affordable housing is needed in this

area, so why was the art

0:17:560:17:59

centre bid successful?

0:17:590:18:01

To convert it to residential

would be difficult and expensive.

0:18:010:18:06

If you look at the reasons for it

being here, the community use

0:18:060:18:11

supports that and there are other

developments coming

0:18:110:18:14

through in Ashburton

which are better suited to housing.

0:18:140:18:18

We have schemes coming forward

through the local planning reviews

0:18:180:18:21

that look to provide that

for the town.

0:18:210:18:25

Small groups are already

using the space but it's hoped

0:18:250:18:27

the venue will be fully open

with a full programme

0:18:270:18:30

of events from next May.

0:18:300:18:36

Crowds lined the harbour

at Lyme Regis today to watch

0:18:360:18:38

an event which would test the nerves

of even the most

0:18:380:18:41

experienced boat builder.

0:18:410:18:43

For the past 38 weeks,

students with little or no

0:18:430:18:45

previous experience have

built their own boats.

0:18:450:18:48

And today was the day they found out

if their design would float.

0:18:480:18:52

Our Dorset reporter Anna Varle

went along to watch.

0:18:520:18:56

It's all hands on deck.

0:18:590:19:01

The students have just 30 minutes

until their boats enter

0:19:010:19:04

the water for the first time.

0:19:040:19:07

Tensions are high.

0:19:070:19:09

I'm a little bit nervous

because we have made something

0:19:090:19:11

which is very beautiful

but I haven't sailed much before,

0:19:110:19:16

I've done some work on water.

0:19:160:19:18

How are you feeling?

0:19:180:19:25

Pleased, confident,

she looks beautiful.

0:19:250:19:26

I think we've got everything right.

0:19:260:19:28

I'm a little tentative, I might say,

just because I built it and I'm not

0:19:280:19:34

famous for good engineering.

0:19:340:19:38

We're going to take the boats one

by one down to the Cob

0:19:380:19:42

and we will be launching them,

we will not be putting the sails up

0:19:420:19:48

and that's a shame but the wind

is actually pretty strong.

0:19:480:19:52

Finally, the moment of truth.

0:19:520:19:55

CHEERING.

0:19:550:19:59

This is the last boat

going in now and so far so good

0:19:590:20:03

but it is incredibly windy

and the boats are not allowed out

0:20:030:20:07

of the harbour and no sails

are allowed to be put up.

0:20:070:20:11

I've covered something like 20

launches and I think this is one

0:20:110:20:15

of only two where we've not been

able to put the sails up

0:20:150:20:19

and go out of the harbour.

0:20:190:20:21

But the wind didn't stop

the champagne from flowing.

0:20:210:20:25

I think given the conditions

we couldn't have asked for more.

0:20:250:20:30

It's been a fantastic

experience and sitting

0:20:300:20:32

in it for the first time,

I really enjoyed it.

0:20:320:20:35

We've still got dry

feet, so we're happy.

0:20:350:20:39

Many of the students had little

or no experience of boat-building

0:20:390:20:43

before starting this course nine

months ago, and with a skill

0:20:430:20:47

shortage in the trade,

the certainty of a job seems

0:20:470:20:50

a likely reward.

0:20:500:20:57

Congratulations to them all, they

looked like beautiful boats.

0:21:040:21:07

Now to a museum that is something

of a hidden treasure.

0:21:070:21:09

It's the UK's leading moving

image museum and it's

0:21:090:21:11

celebrating its 20th anniversary.

0:21:110:21:16

There's a huge collection of some

80,000 artefacts from the very

0:21:160:21:19

early days of moving images

through to modern day film.

0:21:190:21:21

It's called the Bill

Douglas Cinema Museum based

0:21:210:21:23

at the University of Exeter -

and it's open to the public.

0:21:230:21:26

Jane Chandler is there

for us this evening.

0:21:260:21:28

This is the upper

gallery of the museum.

0:21:280:21:30

Here there is ephermera

and paraphernalia related

0:21:300:21:32

to going to the movies and just over

here, the glamour of the movies.

0:21:320:21:36

The lovely Marilyn Monroe,

Audrey Hepburn and this amazing

0:21:360:21:40

biography of one of the very first

stars of the movies, Pearl White,

0:21:400:21:46

and it says that the edition

is dedicated to the memory

0:21:460:21:49

of the explorer Ernest Shackleton.

0:21:490:21:53

In here we have technology

related to something

0:21:530:21:55

like 300 years of history

of making moving pictures.

0:21:550:21:59

Who would have thought that?

0:21:590:22:01

This machine is called a mutoscope

and you can see What the Butler Saw.

0:22:010:22:08

I say!

0:22:080:22:12

This little beauty

is over 100 years old.

0:22:120:22:16

It's called a Moy and Bastie camera

and it's believed that this very

0:22:160:22:19

camera was the one that was used

to film the battle of the Somme

0:22:190:22:22

in the First World War.

0:22:220:22:25

The man who used this

camera was JB McDowell.

0:22:250:22:28

His work provides a moving

insight into life in

0:22:280:22:31

the trenches and visitors love

what they see here.

0:22:310:22:36

I feel like I've just

gone back two centuries.

0:22:360:22:41

It's lovely, I love it.

0:22:410:22:43

You can actually get

up to the reproduction

0:22:430:22:45

pieces and make them work.

0:22:450:22:47

I can see bringing my grandchildren

here and showing them the mutoscopes

0:22:470:22:51

and these little pieces way before

there was ever film,

0:22:510:22:54

so I think I'll do that.

0:22:540:23:04

It's an amazing collection of toys,

technology and memorabilia at the

0:23:040:23:08

Bill Douglas Cinema Museum. Let's

meet the man responsible for looking

0:23:080:23:14

after this collection, Doctor Phil

welcome. Tell me about this because

0:23:140:23:19

this is particularly special.

In

many ways this is the most important

0:23:190:23:25

artefact in the museum, an original

lumiere cinematograph. The first

0:23:250:23:31

films were projected on one of

these, there were only a few hundred

0:23:310:23:35

made.

This collection came from Bill

Douglas.

Can you tell me about him.

0:23:350:23:41

He was an amazing film-maker and

also a collector with his friend

0:23:410:23:48

Phil Jordan. After Bill died, Peter

Jordan donated the collection to the

0:23:480:23:57

university to phone the museum. More

people have donated and we have

0:23:570:24:01

around 80,000 architects.

What sort

of people come here?

We have

0:24:010:24:08

researchers from all over the world,

students and pensioners,

0:24:080:24:13

schoolchildren, corrupt, more and

more people are discovering what an

0:24:130:24:17

amazing collection it is.

I've been

told this museum is open seven days

0:24:170:24:23

a week between 10am and 5pm so you

should come and have a look.

0:24:230:24:29

I never knew it was there. Time for

the weather now. What will

0:24:290:24:34

colder, we have been in autumn until

today and then things change. Change

0:24:380:24:44

is under way, it will be cold tongue

like and into the weekend we are

0:24:440:24:49

looking at a drop in temperatures.

Tomorrow that will be cold for all

0:24:490:24:56

of us with the rest are

0:24:560:24:58

Tomorrow that will be cold for all

of us with the rest are some icy

0:24:580:24:59

patches on roads, this weather

system is the boundary between mild

0:24:590:25:05

air we have seen this week and the

colder air travelling towards us and

0:25:050:25:09

it's through the English Channel

around the middle of tomorrow, then

0:25:090:25:13

it moves away but it opens the door

to allow cold north-west winds to

0:25:130:25:18

develop, they come in on Saturday,

that will be a blustery and cold

0:25:180:25:24

feeling day and more frost on

Saturday night into Sunday, then

0:25:240:25:28

slightly less cold air by Monday on

this weather system but it's short

0:25:280:25:33

lived because we returned to

northerly winds by the middle of

0:25:330:25:36

next week. Also picking up the

radar, the colour is where it is

0:25:360:25:43

raining now and you can see a stripe

of rain across the north of Devon,

0:25:430:25:47

more cloud and rain coming in behind

me. This will bump along the south

0:25:470:25:52

coast but before it arrived today we

had a lot of fine weather. We had

0:25:520:25:59

some glorious sunshine and fine

weather, and with less wind around

0:25:590:26:04

today, although it has been quite

breezy, and shelter it is felt quite

0:26:040:26:08

present, some lovely weather

pictures. The temperature can they

0:26:080:26:13

will drop was some clear skies

already starting to fall away, but I

0:26:130:26:18

don't think they will fall too low

because all that cloud will give us

0:26:180:26:22

some rain overnight and that band of

cloud and rain will gradually move

0:26:220:26:27

east, replaced by showers but even

though showers will keep going

0:26:270:26:32

through to dawn tomorrow and when

starting to change direction as

0:26:320:26:35

colder air seeps in. Five or 6

degrees the minimum temperature

0:26:350:26:40

tonight, tomorrow a lot of cloud,

largely confined to western parts of

0:26:400:26:45

Cornwall and the south of Devon, the

showers, some clearing skies further

0:26:450:26:51

north and temperatures already

starting to come down. Nine or ten

0:26:510:26:56

will be the maximum temperature for

all of us tomorrow. Those are the

0:26:560:27:01

times of high water. Surfing

conditions will be clean fun north

0:27:010:27:06

and south coats, the winds westerly,

the re-for four, and veering to

0:27:060:27:13

become north for north-westerly by

the end of the afternoon and into

0:27:130:27:17

the evening, and that is dragging in

clearer air, so frost is possible,

0:27:170:27:21

Saturday is a nice day. We had 15

degrees on Monday and more cloud on

0:27:210:27:29

Sunday and rain returning on Monday.

Have a nice evening.

0:27:290:27:33

On fire late news, more on possible

changes to the storage of nuclear

0:27:330:27:40

waste at Hinkley Point. That is at

10:20pm but from us here on

0:27:400:27:46

Spotlight, good night.
