This is BBC World News Today with me, Philippa Thomas. Athlete and

:00:00.:00:11.

murder suspect Oscar Pistorius comes under the fiercest questioning yet

:00:12.:00:14.

about the death of his girlfriend. In the court today, the prosecution

:00:15.:00:17.

played video of Pistorius firing bullets into a watermelon - before

:00:18.:00:20.

showing a graphic photograph of Reeva Steenkamp's head. As I picked

:00:21.:00:27.

Reeva up, my fingers touched her head, I don't have to look at a

:00:28.:00:31.

picture, I know what her head looked like.

:00:32.:00:36.

Are the pings now conclusive? More evidence pointing to the crash site

:00:37.:00:39.

of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370. Also coming up - Oil blockades,

:00:40.:00:43.

strikes and militias - we look at Libya's chances of holding together

:00:44.:00:46.

as regional rivalries continue to threaten stability.

:00:47.:00:52.

And welcome to Spanish speaking California - we look at a new

:00:53.:00:55.

Hispanic majority in the state - could the rest of America follow the

:00:56.:00:57.

trend? Hello and welcome. It's been another

:00:58.:01:16.

gripping, distressing day at the Oscar Pistorius trial in South

:01:17.:01:23.

Africa. The athlete faced the toughest questioning yet about his

:01:24.:01:26.

version of events, on the night he shot dead his girlfriend Reeva

:01:27.:01:29.

Steenkamp. There were gasps in court as a graphic photo of the victim

:01:30.:01:33.

lying on the bathroom floor was shown, and the chief prosecutor told

:01:34.:01:37.

Pistorius it was time 'he had a look at it'. The South African athlete,

:01:38.:01:40.

who denies murder, insists he shot her by mistake. Our correspondent

:01:41.:01:44.

Milton Nkosi has been following today's events in Pretoria. Over to

:01:45.:01:58.

you. Yes, we only from Pretoria tonight. We witnessed in the

:01:59.:02:03.

building behind me this seems you were describing when the

:02:04.:02:09.

prosecutor, Gerrie Nel, lead into Oscar Pistorius, he was relentless

:02:10.:02:14.

and ruthless. He asked him to take responsibility for shooting and

:02:15.:02:20.

killing Reeva Steenkamp. For two days he has been a fragile

:02:21.:02:27.

figure in court. Today the prosecution decided it was time to

:02:28.:02:31.

remind people that the real victim is. As usual, no images of Oscar

:02:32.:02:38.

Pistorius giving evidence but here is the prosecutor now, launching

:02:39.:02:43.

into a prosecution. You are repeating it three times, what was

:02:44.:02:48.

your mistake? The mistake was I took a life. You shot and killed her.

:02:49.:02:53.

Will you take responsibility for that? I do. Say it then, say it, say

:02:54.:03:02.

you shot and killed Reeva Steenkamp. I did milady. That was just the

:03:03.:03:10.

start. Amateur footage of the stories with friends at a firing

:03:11.:03:18.

range. It exploded, and I write? You know the same happened to the head

:03:19.:03:22.

of Eva Steenkamp? To reinforce the point, a photo of her head wind came

:03:23.:03:31.

up in court. The story is's relatives were distraught. The

:03:32.:03:34.

mother of Reeva Steenkamp simply bowed her head. -- Oscar

:03:35.:03:42.

Pistorius's relatives. As I picked Reeva up, my fingers touched her

:03:43.:03:47.

head, I do not have two at a picture, I was there. His lawyer

:03:48.:03:54.

objected. I think it is and called for, I see no basis for that. The

:03:55.:04:01.

athlete broke down, sobbing. The focus then moved to the toilet door,

:04:02.:04:05.

the when he shot through four times. He told the court he had done so

:04:06.:04:12.

accidentally. I did not intend to shoot anyone. If I could think

:04:13.:04:16.

before I had a moment to comprehend what was happening, I believed that

:04:17.:04:19.

someone was coming out of the toilet. This goes to the heart of

:04:20.:04:25.

the case, if Oscar Pistorius is forced to admit he fired

:04:26.:04:29.

deliberately, the prosecution can prove it is murder.

:04:30.:04:39.

In that report you would have seen that there was a graphic picture

:04:40.:04:44.

which we have banned because there was a gasp in court when a picture

:04:45.:04:50.

of fatally wounded Reeva Steenkamp was shown on the screens in court.

:04:51.:04:56.

That is what the prosecutor is trying to drive home here, he is

:04:57.:05:01.

trying to make Oscar Pistorius be the accused, rather than the

:05:02.:05:07.

victim, which we saw in the last few days. Remember, this was just day

:05:08.:05:14.

one of the cross examination. If there was no jury, it could be

:05:15.:05:17.

argued that the prosecution's toughness might have errant Oscar

:05:18.:05:22.

Pistorius sympathy but this is not a jury trial? Yes, indeed. Said that

:05:23.:05:30.

figure does not have a jury system. It is a judge and two assessors

:05:31.:05:37.

listening to the case. We are listening to the prosecution taking

:05:38.:05:43.

Oscar Pistorius out of the comfort zone where he was led by the

:05:44.:05:48.

defence. It is bringing him smack into the centre of the story as the

:05:49.:05:53.

culprit. They are trying to prove he shot and killed Reeva Steenkamp with

:05:54.:05:58.

intent. The nickname for the prosecutor, Gerrie Nel, is a pit

:05:59.:06:04.

bull and he lived up to that reputation. Thank you very much.

:06:05.:06:10.

A sixteen year old student has carried out a mass stabbing in the

:06:11.:06:13.

United States. Police say nineteen students and one staff member were

:06:14.:06:16.

injured in the attack today at a high school near Pittsburgh,

:06:17.:06:18.

Pennsylvania. Rajini Vaidyanathan has the latest.

:06:19.:06:24.

The morning of ten at Franklin Regional high School. Shortly after

:06:25.:06:30.

seven o'clock, a student armed with two names went on a stabbing spree.

:06:31.:06:35.

I want him to school and saw kids running. I was told to get out. I

:06:36.:06:41.

looked out the window and I saw a kid holding his stomach and running.

:06:42.:06:46.

I watched into the parking lot and there was this kid lying down

:06:47.:06:51.

holding his side and there was a teacher on top screaming for help

:06:52.:06:57.

stop it took police have to narrow to contain the attacker as he roams

:06:58.:07:02.

classrooms. Parents rushed to the scene. Panic, your stomach just

:07:03.:07:08.

drops. You don't know what is going on and what is happening. Every day

:07:09.:07:14.

she walks out, I worry about something like that for her and

:07:15.:07:19.

other kids. I was so glad to you she was low-key, but I gather some other

:07:20.:07:25.

kids were not so lucky. Most of the victims ranged between 14 and 17.

:07:26.:07:29.

Some are being treated for serious injuries, many others sustained

:07:30.:07:35.

Scouts that lack cuts and bruises as they scrambled to escape. They all

:07:36.:07:41.

have knife winds, awards are to the lower abdomen will stop this in to

:07:42.:07:47.

have a pattern, mostly to the right abdomen. A 16-year-old student was

:07:48.:07:54.

taken away by police. They are looking into reports about as

:07:55.:07:57.

threatening phone call from the suspect to classmates the night

:07:58.:08:03.

before. But for now their motive is unclear.

:08:04.:08:06.

The team searching for Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 has picked up

:08:07.:08:09.

further signals consistent with a plane's flight recorder. The

:08:10.:08:12.

Australian navy ship Ocean Shield has recorded two more transmissions

:08:13.:08:15.

from the same area of the Indian Ocean as those heard over the

:08:16.:08:18.

weekend. Search co-ordinators say they're now optimistic that the

:08:19.:08:22.

remains of the aircraft - which disappeared a month ago - will be

:08:23.:08:28.

found. Peter Roberts is Senior Research Fellow in Maritime Studies

:08:29.:08:31.

at RUSI - The Royal United Services Institute. He's in our Southampton

:08:32.:08:41.

studio. Welcome to world news today. How confident are you that this

:08:42.:08:47.

means the site has been found? I think we can be certain we have

:08:48.:08:50.

found the area where the black box is. Whether this means that is the

:08:51.:08:56.

crash site, I think that is unlikely. There may be did police.

:08:57.:09:04.

We have almost certainly find the black box recorder or at least

:09:05.:09:09.

localised it. We're still talking about hundreds of square miles. You

:09:10.:09:15.

presume that the black box will be inside the main body of the wreckage

:09:16.:09:21.

or somewhere else? That is a distinct possibility. We will not

:09:22.:09:27.

see a whole fusilade or pull wings being recovered. During any impact

:09:28.:09:32.

events and as it moved through the ocean, it will be broken up by the

:09:33.:09:37.

large seas and this will be disbursed over a large easier,

:09:38.:09:41.

perhaps hundreds of miles. The important thing is the signal from

:09:42.:09:47.

the black box. We have an admission finally from the search team that

:09:48.:09:52.

this is the black box recorder signal itself and that is important.

:09:53.:09:58.

Either not possibilities it could be animal life, like dolphins emitting

:09:59.:10:06.

those sounds? -- are they are not. The reason this frequency is picked

:10:07.:10:12.

is because it is not similar to any other marine mammals or frequencies

:10:13.:10:17.

at which they transmit. The only similarity is with dolphins as you

:10:18.:10:22.

say but that is a fixed term nature of the signal which discounts that.

:10:23.:10:31.

The closest thing to it is that it could have been an inadvertent

:10:32.:10:33.

signal from one of the ships around it. Having heard that Ocean Shield

:10:34.:10:40.

and other ships have turned off all nonessential equipment, they have

:10:41.:10:45.

now discounted that. We will probably see a further statement

:10:46.:10:50.

coming to see that this is without doubt the black box. Thank you very

:10:51.:10:55.

much for joining us. In eastern Ukraine, pro-Russia

:10:56.:10:57.

activists continue to occupy government buildings in the cities

:10:58.:11:00.

of Donetsk and Luhansk, despite the decision of Ukrainian authorities

:11:01.:11:03.

earlier this week to launch what they call an anti-terrorist

:11:04.:11:05.

operation against armed separatists. Today, Ukraine's Interior Minister,

:11:06.:11:07.

Arsen Avakov, told journalists in Kiev that the crisis in eastern

:11:08.:11:11.

Ukraine will be resolved within 48 hours - either through negotiations

:11:12.:11:13.

or by force. The BBC's Steve Rosenberg has just filed this report

:11:14.:11:28.

with the separatists in Donetsk. This is the so-called provisional

:11:29.:11:33.

government of the People's Republic of Donetsk. They have been holding a

:11:34.:11:39.

question and answer session for journalists and said they intend to

:11:40.:11:45.

press ahead with their referendum on regional sovereignty. They maintain

:11:46.:11:51.

three countries are ready to recognise this independent country,

:11:52.:11:56.

they refused to say which ones. They are holding a dialogue with the

:11:57.:12:00.

authorities here. Earlier today, the governor of this region topped about

:12:01.:12:10.

this meeting. He said he had met representatives of the pro-Russian

:12:11.:12:12.

activists and topped but how to resolve the stand-off peacefully.

:12:13.:12:18.

Meanwhile, President Putin has warned Ukraine it might have to pay

:12:19.:12:21.

those imports of Russian gas in advance. The Russian president said

:12:22.:12:25.

his state-owned supplier, Gazprom, had the right to demand prepayment

:12:26.:12:28.

if Ukraine doesn't clear its arrears - which he says amount to $2.2

:12:29.:12:31.

billion. Let's look at both these issues with the BBC's David Stern

:12:32.:12:35.

who's in the Ukrainian capital Kiev. First - this 48 hour ultimatum from

:12:36.:12:39.

Kiev to the separatists - what does it mean? It is not quite clear. They

:12:40.:12:48.

have said they could resort to force, but this could be a read or

:12:49.:12:54.

special operations. It is not certain. It does raise some concerns

:12:55.:13:01.

because any use of force could escalate the situation. The

:13:02.:13:06.

authorities have said they will try to resolve this peacefully and they

:13:07.:13:11.

are entering talks. Prior to this they said they would do this without

:13:12.:13:19.

bloodshed. In another city where the government building was occupied, be

:13:20.:13:25.

cleared it without a shot being fired and the detained 70

:13:26.:13:30.

activists. Tensions are rising there, as you heard. Guards are

:13:31.:13:36.

barricaded in the state security building and apparently they are

:13:37.:13:41.

well armed. So even if they use force, will it be successful, given

:13:42.:13:45.

that they are barricaded in these buildings? Another issue which could

:13:46.:13:52.

affect everyone in you clean, if Russia does the price of gas are

:13:53.:13:59.

cuts of? Indeed. Everyone looks towards Russia for a number of

:14:00.:14:04.

reasons, there are concerns or accusations that the Russians are

:14:05.:14:08.

building up troops on the border. But Russia has a number of tools to

:14:09.:14:14.

bring pressure on you clean. -- only you clean. One of them is the gas

:14:15.:14:27.

cards. -- on Ukraine. Its industry is heavily dependent on gas saw any

:14:28.:14:32.

decrease in supply will affect the economy adverseley. Thank you very

:14:33.:14:36.

much. Now a look at some of the days other

:14:37.:14:39.

news. A bomb has ripped through a bustling

:14:40.:14:42.

market in the Pakistani capital Islamabad, killing at least twenty

:14:43.:14:45.

two people and injuring more than eighty. The bomb is said to have

:14:46.:14:49.

been hidden in a fruit box. It's the deadliest attack in Islamabad in six

:14:50.:14:55.

years. Eighteen people have been killed in

:14:56.:14:59.

a series of car bomb attacks in the Iraqi capital Baghdad. More than

:15:00.:15:01.

seventy were injured in the blasts, which appear to have targeted mainly

:15:02.:15:06.

Shi-ite neighbourhoods. Italy says it has rescued

:15:07.:15:08.

four-thousand African migrants from boats trying to reach Europe in the

:15:09.:15:11.

past forty-eight hours. Rescues included a group of more than a

:15:12.:15:14.

thousand people spotted off Sicily as their boats ran into trouble. The

:15:15.:15:17.

Italian Interior Minister Angelino Alfano said the situation was

:15:18.:15:20.

getting worse as people-traffickers appear to be stepping up their

:15:21.:15:25.

trade. Security experts are urging computer

:15:26.:15:28.

users to change their passwords after what has been described as a

:15:29.:15:31.

catastrophic flaw was discovered in vital security software. The bug,

:15:32.:15:34.

nicknamed Heartbleed, was in OpenSSL - software used by hundreds of

:15:35.:15:37.

thousands of websites to ensure secure communication.

:15:38.:15:50.

India's marathon election goes on. In the Northeast, hundreds of

:15:51.:15:53.

thousands of people stood in line for hours today to vote in the

:15:54.:15:56.

second phase of the country's national elections. North-east India

:15:57.:15:59.

is a region affected by insurgencies and Sanjoy Majumder explains voters

:16:00.:16:02.

there often feel remote from the capital, Delhi.

:16:03.:16:05.

We are very close to the Burmese border, the border of Myanmar, from

:16:06.:16:08.

where I am. Nagaland shares a border with Myanmar. You still see a lot of

:16:09.:16:15.

soldiers about. This is a part of the country which hosted the longest

:16:16.:16:19.

running insurgency in India. An insurgency which has been calmed for

:16:20.:16:22.

some time because of the cease-fire which was signed in the 1990s. But

:16:23.:16:26.

the underground militants still have a lot of influence. A lot of people

:16:27.:16:31.

I spoke to basically said, you know, there is still a lot of areas that

:16:32.:16:35.

they control. So, this is an area where India has put in a lot of

:16:36.:16:39.

control over the years. And there is a general sense of unease. There's

:16:40.:16:43.

also one other thing. There is a market not very far from where I am

:16:44.:16:46.

called the Hong Kong market. Everything you see there is from

:16:47.:16:49.

China. From toys, electronic goods, clothes. That is the other big worry

:16:50.:16:53.

here that India has. That its giant Asian neighbour... This neighbour is

:16:54.:16:57.

increasing its presence here in Nagaland and in this entire region.

:16:58.:17:01.

And perhaps its own influence is a bit tenuous.

:17:02.:17:06.

And voting in India concludes on the 12th of May with counting starting

:17:07.:17:10.

on the 16th. Two Libyan oil terminals have

:17:11.:17:13.

reopened this week after rebels agreed to partially lift their oil

:17:14.:17:16.

blockade in a deal reached with the government. The Justice Minister

:17:17.:17:20.

said that the eastern terminals of Zueitina and Hariga are now in

:17:21.:17:25.

government hands. Two more ports are due to reopen in the next few weeks.

:17:26.:17:28.

Traders are watching the negotiations closely, keen to know

:17:29.:17:31.

when Libyan oil is going to re-enter the market, as these port closures

:17:32.:17:36.

have caused major disruption. In the past eight months, oil exports have

:17:37.:17:40.

dropped by 80% as a result of the blockade by militiamen, who are

:17:41.:17:41.

seeking greater regional autonomy. The country's current output stands

:17:42.:17:49.

at around 150,000 barrels per day. And here's a crucial figure. The two

:17:50.:17:52.

re-opened ports could increase Libya's crude oil exports

:17:53.:17:54.

dramatically by about 200,000 barrels per day.

:17:55.:18:00.

And that stand-off over oil demonstrates for us both Libya's

:18:01.:18:04.

potential, and the forces which could tear it apart. I'm joined now

:18:05.:18:10.

by Fadeel Lameen, the Chairman of the National Dialogue Preparatory

:18:11.:18:12.

Committee for Libya, a group which has a mandate from the government,

:18:13.:18:33.

but describes itself as independent. Does everyone want to join your

:18:34.:18:41.

conversation? Absolutely. We have seen that we have taken over 25

:18:42.:18:47.

cities, and towns, and we're heading to other towns. Everybody is excited

:18:48.:18:52.

by this opportunity to put together the second Libyan state where

:18:53.:18:58.

everybody has the opportunity to create a sense of unity, and a sense

:18:59.:19:04.

of understanding that is needed for the country to move forward. Is it

:19:05.:19:09.

hard to learn to have dialogue with open conversation has been repressed

:19:10.:19:14.

for decades? Absolutely. That is why we have been talking, and nobody has

:19:15.:19:18.

been listening to each other. We have reached a point right now where

:19:19.:19:24.

we have finally decided that just shouting and trying to impose their

:19:25.:19:29.

point of view will not work. They have to come to the table, talk to

:19:30.:19:34.

each other, reach a consensus on how they will live together and build a

:19:35.:19:39.

future together. When we look at Libya, there are so many provinces.

:19:40.:19:43.

You have that traditional tension between Tripoli and Benghazi. Did

:19:44.:19:50.

you have quite a challenge? We do, but we have been there. We started

:19:51.:19:56.

in the east of the country. We went to a place which is a tough town.

:19:57.:20:02.

And we went to Benghazi. And we moved through the South and West. We

:20:03.:20:08.

all found that Libyans want one country, and the entirety of the

:20:09.:20:15.

Libyan soil is in their minds. They want justice and reconciliation, and

:20:16.:20:19.

they want security, but they want to do it together. Do they need help

:20:20.:20:25.

from the international community or do they have to do this for

:20:26.:20:29.

themselves? The conversation, they have to do themselves. But they need

:20:30.:20:32.

the help from the international community because they cannot do it

:20:33.:20:38.

alone. Whatever agreement they reach will have to be supported and

:20:39.:20:42.

appreciated, and guaranteed by the international community. They have

:20:43.:20:46.

to feel the international community is behind them and will not let the

:20:47.:20:50.

Libyan people down. As we said, oil is both the promise for Libya. You

:20:51.:20:56.

are so rich. But it is a curse because different factions want

:20:57.:21:01.

control. That is true. That is what we will talk. How to split this

:21:02.:21:09.

well. It will not be a regional issue because it is a national

:21:10.:21:12.

treasure and National resort is that has to be distributed to build the

:21:13.:21:17.

prosperity of the Libyan people, no matter where they are. It is not a

:21:18.:21:23.

geographical issue. Otherwise, it becomes too localised and nobody

:21:24.:21:26.

except the one who has the oil fleet in their own backyard can benefit

:21:27.:21:31.

from the work. Very good to have you with us, thank you.

:21:32.:21:34.

Now a story about the changing face of America. In March, Hispanics were

:21:35.:21:36.

projected to become the largest ethnic group in California,

:21:37.:21:39.

overtaking whites for the first time in the state's history. That's a

:21:40.:21:42.

demographic turnaround that's only happened in one other US state - New

:21:43.:21:46.

Mexico. And where California leads, America often follows, as Alistair

:21:47.:21:47.

Leithead reports from Los Angeles. Behind-the-scenes of America's most

:21:48.:22:01.

popular local TV station. And it is in Spanish. KMEX Channel 34 is in

Los Angeles, where the Hispanic population is already bigger than

:22:08.:22:12.

any other ethnic group. The whole of California is now passing that

landmark. This is the first step of many... In what will definitely be a

:22:19.:22:23.

century that will be... Significantly altered by Hispanic

:22:24.:22:25.

opinion, Hispanic public opinion, and Hispanic... Political

:22:26.:22:33.

involvement. But it goes beyond the Spanish language. And the biggest

:22:34.:22:39.

media market out there is Latino. Most are young and speak English.

:22:40.:22:43.

Brand-new stations like El Rey know their target audience. The face of

:22:44.:22:48.

the network... Will resemble the face of the country. This is the

people's network. It isn't the first time Hispanics have outnumbered

:22:56.:23:00.

non-Hispanic whites. Less than 200 years ago, Outer, or Upper

:23:01.:23:03.

California, as it was known back then, was part of Mexico. This is

:23:04.:23:07.

one of the remaining Spanish missions. Built by the colonisers to

:23:08.:23:11.

bring Christianity to the Native Americans. After Mexican

:23:12.:23:15.

independence in 1821, these became privately owned ranchos to try to

:23:16.:23:21.

attract Mexican settlers. But after just 25 years the United States

:23:22.:23:27.

invaded. And won a war which went on to create California as its 31st

:23:28.:23:31.

state. Then came the gold rush, and the proportion of Hispanics here

:23:32.:23:36.

dropped dramatically. Today, you are as likely to see McDonald's as you

:23:37.:23:41.

are a Mexican fast food joint in LA. The two cultures have quite

:23:42.:23:43.

obviously been growing together for years. It is the new normal. The

:23:44.:23:50.

eyes of the world are on California. This morning, the children that went

:23:51.:23:54.

to schools in Los Angeles, over 72% of the children are now... Latino

:23:55.:24:01.

origin children. They are the future cops. They are the nurses. They are

:24:02.:24:05.

the doctors. They are the lawyers. They are the soldiers. They are...

:24:06.:24:10.

Your future citizens. And don't the politicians know it? Hi, I'm Tim

:24:11.:24:17.

Donnelly. I'm running for governor. This Tea Party Republican wants

:24:18.:24:21.

illegal immigrants deported. But also wants the Latino vote. That

:24:22.:24:27.

makes it awkward. California isn't keeping up with its changing face.

:24:28.:24:32.

Latinos lag behind in political representation and education.

:24:33.:24:35.

Something their news channel is trying to change.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's son Prince George hosted his first

:24:44.:24:46.

ever official function on Wednesday when he joined a group of New

:24:47.:24:49.

Zealand toddlers for a royal play date. Our royal correspondent was

:24:50.:25:05.

there. He was not afraid to assert himself but then that is perfectly

:25:06.:25:08.

normal for an eight-month-old boy. He is crawling and people watching

:25:09.:25:11.

said there were moments when he seemed to be not far short of

:25:12.:25:14.

walking. For George, it was something new, a brief but at times

:25:15.:25:18.

boisterous start to what will potentially be the a lifetime of

:25:19.:25:21.

being the centre of attention. He had been brought by his mother to a

:25:22.:25:24.

specially arranged playgroup at Government House. Ten babies of

:25:25.:25:27.

roughly the same age as him. At first he seemed a little bashful,

:25:28.:25:31.

more interested in his mother's hair than his new playmates. But then a

:25:32.:25:34.

girl caught his eye. Not an entirely successful encounter - she retired

:25:35.:25:42.

in tears. George tried again with another child. He spotted a toy he

:25:43.:25:47.

wanted so he reached out and grabbed it. Once again, Mum had to come to

:25:48.:25:56.

the rescue. He was his own little man. He went

:25:57.:26:00.

into the middle of the circle of toys. He hunted out the biggest toy.

:26:01.:26:04.

He propped himself up and owned the place, basically.

:26:05.:26:07.

George at eight months, starting to learn about the world around him,

:26:08.:26:11.

though still oblivious to what his own future holds. For now, he seemed

:26:12.:26:18.

happiest playing with his rattle. Now he has completed his sort of

:26:19.:26:20.

semi-first public engagement, he can relax. He will not be seen again in

:26:21.:26:28.

public until he leaves New Zealand with his mother and father in about

:26:29.:26:41.

a week's time. A good start and many more to come.

:26:42.:26:44.

Thank you for being with us here. Goodbye.

:26:45.:26:53.

Good evening. It turned out to be a pretty decent day from many parts of

:26:54.:27:02.

the British Isles, with temperatures in excess of 16 in
