6:00 am
good morning — welcome to breakfast, with rachel burden and jon kay. our headlines today: after 18 months of negotiations, eu leaders meet to sign off the uk's brexit deal. in an open letter, theresa may has urged the public to get behind the agreement, saying it'll be a "new chapter" for the nation. 9 in 10 people who've bought newly—built homes have had some kind of problem with it, a survey finds. one of the biggest football matches in argentina's history is postponed, after a bus carrying players is attacked by rival fans. and in sport, heartbreak for england as they lose to australia in the final of the women's world twenty20 in antigua. if you are stuck under the gloom yesterday, the prospect of something a little brighter today. still some showers around feeling the cold side. more in 15 minutes. it's sunday the 25th of november. our top story. the prime minister is due to meet her fellow eu leaders in brussels shortly, to take the most important step so far on the uk's journey out of the european union. after 18 months of
6:01 am
negotiations, they are set to approve the withdrawal agreement and a political declaration on future relations. in a letter to the nation today, theresa may insists the deal will work for the whole of the country. our correspondent adam fleming reports from brussels. the prime minister ending a round of meetings in brussels last night. the country meetings in brussels last night. the cou ntry wa kes meetings in brussels last night. the country wakes up to an open letter from her. in it, she says the deal works for all of our people, whether you voted to leave or remain. and that after brexit day next march, we will then begin a new chapter in our national life. it was all nearly derailed at the last minute by pressure from the spanish government over how brexit will play out in gibraltar. translation: in the framework of the future political declaration, the european council and the european commission will
6:02 am
reinforce spain's position. the uk's position on the sovereignty of gibraltar has not changed and will not change. i am proud that gibraltar is british and i will always stand by gibraltar. the other eu leaders will rubberstamp their side of the bargain in room for theresa may is ushered in. the brexit deal completed by sunday lunch. adam fleming, bbc news, brussels. let's get more from our political correspondent alex forsyth, who's been taking a closer look at theresa may's open letter to the british public — which promises "a new chapter" after brexit. theresa may know she's got some pretty fierce critics don't like this brexit deal is what she is doing is ditching it directly to the public. this is a lesson to the nation when she talks about her sense of duty. negotiating a deal which honours the referendum result. she says is right deal. she
6:03 am
deliberately uses those quite strong and fairly emotive language in this matter. she talks about the date when will finally leave the european union on march 29 as being a moment of renewal and reconciliation for the country to come together. she says she is going to campaign with a heart and soul to try and get parliament to back this deal. the problem is, there are already a number of mps, including a number in her own party, who have said quite frankly that they will not be supporting it. theresa may might be trying to persuade the public in the hope that might shift a few mines in parliament but whether that will be enough to get this deal through, that's another question. alex forsyth in london. christian fraser will be live from brussels from seven o'clock, breakfast and across the bbc, all day. a man has been charged with the attempted murder of a police officer after a knife
6:04 am
attack in east london. the incident happened at ilford railway station on friday night. daniel adeyemi — who's 2a — will appear before magistrates tomorrow. the officer involved has been discharged from hospital. nine in ten people who've bought newly—built homes say they've found some kind of defect in their property, according to research seen by bbc radio 5 live investigates. the figures come from an annual report called ‘the new homes review‘. last month, the government announced plans to help buyers facing problems. 5 live presenter adrian goldberg joins us now with the details. to see you again, a dream. what kind of issues are we talking about?l defect, a snag, it can range from a light bulb being painted over to quite significant problems. you are talking about nine in ten new homebuyers. the dream home, expecting it to be no problems. nine out of ten of them discovering there isa out of ten of them discovering there is a snag or a defect. as many as
6:05 am
one infourof is a snag or a defect. as many as one in four of them are saying no snags 01’ one in four of them are saying no snags or defects are not dealt with prom ptly snags or defects are not dealt with promptly and overall, around one in three people say they are not satisfied. what is the problem here? is it time pressures? what is going on? it is all of the above. craig tracey in worcestershire, but poverty had 354 defects. troublesome roofs, damp course is not being put in properly, wall problems. they've beenin in properly, wall problems. they've been in their property for two yea rs. been in their property for two years. they've had to leave now because the house is not habitable. really worrying. the company that made that house, bovis, say they are really sorry, they are working with the family and they have thousands of happy customers. it points to real problems when people buy a
6:06 am
brand—new house. real problems when people buy a brand-new house. the government are trying to get a grip on this?l brand-new house. the government are trying to get a grip on this? a lot of talk, recommendations in 2016 and 2018. new homes property ombudsman. when that will happen and what its powers will be, we are still waiting. you can hear more on that story on bbc radio 5 live at 11 o'clock this morning. essex police have issued a warning about a potentially dangerous batch of cocaine after the death of a man in colchester. they are warning anyone who may have bought cocaine in the town or surrounding areas in the last 24 hours not to take it. south american football officials were forced to postpone one of the biggest matches in argentina's history last night, after a bus carrying one of the teams was attacked by rival fans. the game, equivalent to the final of the champions league, was between two teams from buenos aries — boca juniors and river plate. boca players suffered cuts from broken windows and were also affected by tear gas used by the police, as lebo diseko
6:07 am
explains. running battles on the streets of buenos aires as river plate fans throw missiles at police. they should have been cheering on their team at the historic football final. instead, these supporters arep are part of what looks like a full—blown riot. earlier, river plate fans attacked the bus carrying the boca juniors to the stadium. boca captain pablo perez had an injured eye, apparently after shards of glass got into it. others players suffered cuts. for the fans, there was disappointment and frustration as the reasoning was cut short. translation: it's a complete embarrassment. the thing is, the vast majority of people have come to enjoy this game peacefully with their family and children but because of 300 misfits, it is always the same
6:08 am
people, soccer has been hurt. translation: this was supposed to project a good image of people celebrating. i am very bitter. i always hoped that things could change but they are not changing. this had been the most anticipated game in the history of the two football giants, the first time they were facing each other inafinal. as the boca team left the stadium, the match had been redscheduled to go ahead later today, but there were still concerns about more violence and ugly scenes to come. lebo diseko, bbc news. the treasures of an ancient egyptian tomb, thought to be more than 3,500 years old, have been unveiled by archaeologists near the city of luxor. two perfectly preserved mummies were found alongside over 1,000 egyptian statues. they're believed to date back to the 18th dynasty, which spanned from 1550
6:09 am
bc to about 1300 bc. it's extraordinary that have survived intact like that. we often hear about the post—traumatic stress disorder experienced by those returning from duty in the armed forces, but the same symptoms are often felt by members of the emergency services working in the uk. in the week that prince william opened up about his own mental health struggles as an air ambulance pilot, we're asking if more could be done to help those who work so hard to help others. our reporterjohn maguire has been finding out. as london's air ambulance arrives
6:10 am
the duty, its flight crew, paramedics and doctors have no idea what the day has in store. on average, it is called to fight emergencies a day. all will involve patients who are critically ill or injured. the service, run by a charity, attracts doctors from around the world because of the high level of emergency care that its staff provides. a canadian, doctor m christian, was one of the first medics on the scene at the london bridge terror attacks last year. they do know one of the paramedics who was first on scene and literally the first person there and he profoundly impacted by this and sought the appropriate help and recognised the signs, the symptoms he was experiencing and that benefited him significantly. he was able to return to his career and continue on after going through that. he served as a military doctor in afghanistan so understands the after—effects of severe trauma and also that medical staff are some way behind the military in their awareness of stress disorder. in
6:11 am
your day—to—day work, when it's something you do as part of your regular career, i think unlike the military people are less aware that this can have an impact so the programmes that have been in place in the military are now coming into the emergency services and even palliative care to help people recognise the impact this could have on them and how they help in korea. this film was made by doctor matthew wharton based on an incident he attended while flying with an air ambulance. he believes more could or should be done, especially to help young staff cope. one part of what we are trying to do is create a briefing package which can be given to people who are new to this type of work. to give them some very simple indication as to what they might see, what are the normal reactions that people can have and what they can do that they do require any further help or support and who they can turn to when they
6:12 am
need it. just this week, prince william spoke about how he was affected by his time as an air ambulance pilot. relation between thejob and ambulance pilot. relation between the job and the personal life is what really took me over the edge andi what really took me over the edge and i started feeling things that i've never felt before and i got very sad and very down. these issues will be discussed at the world extreme medicine conference in edinburgh today. delegates will consider what more needs to be done to help people in the emergency services to cope with such traumatic events to help each other and themselves so that they can carry on helping those in such critical need. john maguire, bbc news. let's look at the front pages, which are largely dominated by the latest brexit developments. the mail on sunday says theresa may's 800—word letter to the nation is "extraordinary". it also reports the pm's aides are considering a live public debate between mrs may and labour leaderjeremy corbyn. the observer describes
6:13 am
the prime minister as "increasingly desperate". they report that theresa may wants to "get on with brexit now" so ministers can focus on other issues, such as improving the nhs. the telegraph claims cabinet ministers and eu diplomats are secretly drawing up a plan b, to be used if the withdrawal deal is voted down in parliament. it says 91 conservative mps have indicated they would oppose the current deal. listen listeners were asking on friday about that. the telegraph claims to have an idea about a secretly drawn up plan b which be used to parliament votes down the deal. it reckons 91 conservative mps have indicated they would oppose the current deal. and finally, the independent has one of our other top stories on its front page. it shows a photo of a protestor waving a flag on the champs—elysees yesterday during demonstrations
6:14 am
about rising fuel prices. it also reports on the brexit negotiations, claiming theresa may is facing backlash over her concessions to spain. inside the papers this morning, i do not know if you have seen this, reports of a blast of cold weather coming our way, saying winter is going to be pretty freezing across the board. it doesn't look like it where you are! good morning, i read that in the papers last night actually and things are going to be turning milder this week and of course christmas is far too far away at the moment. if you were stuck underneath the gloom yesterday, a better chance of brightness today but we will keep some cloud, still some showers around and for now feeling cold in the easterly winds. this is yesterday's pressure that the rain southern parts, pulling
6:15 am
away but has left a legacy of a few showers through the channel that we are still in the cold air but not for much longer. the middle of the week it will be mild. on the easterly winds we will see showers feeding across, already across the east of scotland, north—east and eastern england, working their way westward on a brisk wind, to the eastern side of northern ireland and will across wales, midlands, southern parts of england but dry here, bright sunny spells and in most of the easterly —— noticeably easterly breeze bringing temperatures not much higherfrom six online degrees. ——6 or nine. the race is the further west you are, showers piling into the coast, the wintry in nature but a cold night where we have the clear skies, widespread frost across northern ireland, northern england, scotland, and temperatures close to freezing in more rural areas the wycherley
6:16 am
started the new week but a quiet day for most of us, some styles of sunshine and in the easterly winds we will pick up showers along the eastern coast but the wind will ease off so those showers will not get too far west and many having a mainly dry day, temperatures still not much higher than 7— ten. then we seek changes, for a change the weather will come in from the atlantic. this frontal system will come in from the west as we go through monday night to tuesday so first thing tuesday morning we will start with outbreaks of rain, strong winds across northern ireland, wales and south—west england and it will push its way east through the day. keepin push its way east through the day. keep in mind the areas cold as the bumps into the cold air, snow for a time across the pennines, the higher ground of scotland and elsewhere rain but turning to quite a wet and windy day. strong gusts particularly the western coast through tuesday afternoon soap after what has been a fairly cold— filling few days and
6:17 am
buy with that things would be milder and virtues they still quite cold. not much — six or —— feeling. wednesday thursday and friday, things will turn mild, a risk we will these gales is not severe gales and also some heavy rain so changes are on the way. thank you very much, the wild weather is all that we can look forward to. for now, early days though. thank you forjoining us. now it's time for the film review with mark kermode and ben brown. hello and welcome to the film review on bbc news. to take us through this week's cinema releases is mark kermode. is it isita is it a bumper crop for us? it is a funny old week. we have assassination nation, which is a violent satire. we have a new take on robin hood.
6:18 am
and the girl in the spider's web. the assassination, based on the internets? there was a film out a few years ago called unfriended, and this was one of those films in which the audience were saying "turn the laptop off!" but the whole point is, you can't. this is set in salem, massachusetts, where four young women find themselves the victims of a witch—hunt after a huge data breach — somebody hacks the collective suddenly, they start releasing everybody‘s secret onto the internet. all this anger and hatred is slowly turned towards these four women. meanwhile, the division between people about this breach of data divides between the older generation here is a clip.
6:19 am
yeah, i mean, there's two types of people in this world, you know> the people who have come to terms with privacy isjust dead, then there's the old people that are still trying to fight it. i guess. i mean, the internet is amazing. like, this guy in minnesota is like 42, whatever. but basically, he subscribed to my amazon wish list and now, legit, he just buys me (bleep) all of a sudden. why? i don't know, i guess he really likes my insta. he likes that i'm really real and i'm cool and i'm a free soul. it's really sad because basically, 90% of people are just so sad and lonely and have such an unfulfilling life. if i'm, like, inspiring people, you know, and my life is so cool and people connect to me on such a level, then, like, basically, myjob for the day is done. like, mark, did you connect, like, with this film? you laughed at that clip, though.
6:20 am
because it is — it is on the money. what i like about it is, on the one hand there is echoes of films like heathers and to some extent clueless. and then obviously the crucible, because are in salem. and it also has a very strong dose of a film like the purge, in which society descends into total anarchy. we begin with people rampaging around with masks on and the voiceover says "how is it that civilised society turned into this?" these four women are being chased. basically, it is scratching away at the surface of the modern world and saying underneath it, all those old hatreds, witch—hunts, instincts are still there. i really liked it. i mean, i think it walks on a knife edge between social exploration and gleeful exploitation. i think some people will find it too tough, some people will find it savage, some will find it too violent. i didn't. it had a real bite. i liked how self—aware it was — and i went in only knowing the title and thinking "this may work, it may not."
6:21 am
i was surprisingly impressed, even from an old man's point of view. no, i thought it was sharp! you're not old at all! robin hood. i think i've seen almost every tv and film version of robin hood. will i like this one? it depends. did you like what guy richie did with the legend of king arthur? no. you are in the same territory. you won't like this. what this does it gives you a modern robin hood so there is a lot of these geezery inflections. robin is sent off to the crusades, he's got a bow and arrow and somehow, the action sequences, you keep expecting helicopters to come overhead. it's a self—consciously modern... taron egerton is robin and ben mendelsohn has a ball as the sheriff of nottingham, which is always the best role in the robin hood films. you remember alan rickman completely stealing robin hood: prince of thieves away from kevin costner? in the case of this,
6:22 am
it's not so much revisionist asjust rubbishing the old version. there is a bit in the beginning where a voiceover says "i will not give you a history lesson but you don't want that, i'll give you this instead." so, on the positive front — ben mendelsohn has fun as the sheriff of nottingham wearing an outfit which appears to be left over from a fetish cosplay party. and on the other side of it, you have something that makes no sense. doesn't attempt to make any sense. it is nothing but swagger, but doesn't have enough of that to carry it through. literally, it leaves you thinking "is this more or less ridiculous than russell crowe's accent when he did robin hood?" my own feeling is, the russell crowe version was more boring, but this is more stupid. now, claire foy, formerly known as the queen, now known as the girl in the spider's web. she's back. she's the latest incarnation of lisbeth salander. it is written by david lagercrantz,
6:23 am
who he took overfrom stieg larsson trilogy which was so well received. she's is an avenging angel and is called to steal a programme from nasa which can access all the world's computer codes. everybody wants it and it will fall into the hands of the wrong people, particularly a group called the spiders. whereas previous instalments of this series were basically psychological thrillers, this is much more an action—adventure. here is a clip. alarm clock rings. loud explosion. definitely lots of action. action—packed. it doesn't have the grit of the films with noomi rapace. it's more like david fincher‘s. but what it does have going for it is claire foy. the story itself goes into superhero territory. they arejumping into matte black cars and motorbikes and it looks like a batman movie. there are lots of stand—offs between people extravagantly dressed. they turn up for a battle
6:24 am
after being in a designer shop. she's really good. even when it doesn't make sense, you believe in her character. it is interesting — from her point of view, she's taken on this role to see if she can do something she hasn't done before. she described it as like flexing a new muscle. that is what it's like. she is the strongest thing about the film. i'd say she is a reason to see the film. the rest of it is much more hollow and empty. it's playing to a mainstream audience, it doesn't have that dirt under the fingernails like the original ones did. it doesn't have quite the style of fincher. they were brilliant plots. this sounds like it is more action, less plot. this is a mission impossible plot. the plot is there is a thing that allows you to have access to all the nuclear codes in the world. i mean, that is a mission impossible story or a batman story, or a superman story. not a, you know — but it is fun, but empty, but she carries it off. fun but empty?
6:25 am
what kind of an endorsement is that? some of the best things are fun but empty. best out? widows. i loved it, you weren't convinced. i really enjoyed it. no, i really enjoyed it but i didn't love it as much as you. i thought there were too many characters. ironically, i thought it would make a great tv series, to explore the characters, which it was originally. this is a different version of the story that doesn't need to be a tv series, it absolutely needs to be a movie. and this is the right thing — it has the exact right number of characters. it is a 5—star film. i remember the tv series and i thought it was great. this is a different beast. ok, i give it four stars or maybe three, i'm not sure. 3.5! 0k, best dvd? skyscraper. the rock meets the towering inferno. i mean, the towering inferno and die hard are the same film. what was it lacking? the rock. it is one of those movies that does what it says on the tin. ok, just leave your coherent facilities outside, this is a movie in which it's a bloke versus a great big building and there's a bunch
6:26 am
of stuff that will happen. we will nick riffs from the lady from shanghai, but it will be the rockjumping from one high thing to another. i love the rock, i love the towering inferno, i love die hard. i really enjoyed skyscraper. you never leave your facilities outside the cinema, mark? i think the smurfs sequel was a challenge for me. all right, mark, thanks so very much for being with us, as ever. mark kermode with his opinion on the week's releases. just a quick reminder before we leave you that you will find more reviews online at kermode, and you can find all of our previous programmes on the bbc iplayer. that is it for us this week. thank you so much watching, goodbye from us. hello, this is breakfast with rachel burden and jon kay. good morning, here's a summary of today's main stories from bbc news.

6:31 am
wales knew they would have to deal with the springboks in wilderbeast mode. their pressure creating space forjesse kriel to score. south africa got back to within 3 points but, as the pressure grew, the welsh got bigger. dan biggar‘s two penalties carried them clear, all the way to an autumnal clean—sweep and nine wins in a row going into a world cup year. speaking of world cups... commentator: this is the one that's coming back forjonny wilkinson! he drops for world cup glory! it's over, he has done it. ian robertson's most famous bbc radio commentary and, for his final match on the mic after 47 years, england was sson beating australia once more. jonny may the finisher of his side's perfect start. england were in control, 10 points ahead but israel folau spotted a hole in their plan. blink and you'll miss him. england did. they were lucky to still be level at the break.
6:32 am
then afterwards, elliot daly found the fast lane. once he does that, the result becomes inevitable. if daly is the express, joe cockanasiga is a freight train with several heavy carriages. no stopping him neither. but finally, he will be stopping after a memorable end to england's year and a legendary career. i have loved every minute of it. and thank you very, very much. patrick geary, bbc news. just to pick up on a couple of points after the rugby — for wales it's there 9th successive win, their longest winning streak in 19 years, which is largely down to head coach warren gatland who leaves the role after next yea r‘s world cup. really proud of the players, brilliant in the last six weeks. the quys brilliant in the last six weeks. the guysin brilliant in the last six weeks. the guys in the summer were fantastic as well. and the welsh public should be really proud of them. they've worked hard, and they conduct themselves brilliantly. scotland finished their autumn series

6:34 am
creates the player, with these attitudes we showed today. what is possible in football, i'm so happy, ourfans, our possible in football, i'm so happy, our fans, our player, possible in football, i'm so happy, ourfans, our player, that possible in football, i'm so happy, our fans, our player, that victory. manchester city beat west ham 4—0 in a performance that manager pep guardiola called "quite lucky". leroy sane scored a goal in each half to help keep the champions two points clear at the top of the league. liverpool are still in second after winning 3—0 at watford. england defender trent alexander—arnold scored the best of the goals with a stunning free—kick. jurgen klopp's side and city are still undefeated in the league. and claudio ranieri won his first match in charge of fulham.

6:38 am
hope to rely on a more experienced players. that didn't really come through, did it? the likes of tammy beaumont who won player of the tournament. danny white, 40 odd in the final. you have to remember, sarah taylor, who is the best keeper in the world, didn't even come to the tournament. you look at the way in which the team performed, it is a good performance. what positives can be taken this? it's not all bad in terms of reputation and tension. a lot is companies. youngsters are coming through, kirste gordon is a brilliant bind. sophia dunkley, a legspinner, she hit the ball extremely hard. going forward, this isa team,
6:39 am
extremely hard. going forward, this is a team, their world cup win in the 50 over final was a bit of a surprise. this is a team that is building in progressing. to have 150 over world cup, it's not a bad record. and the players who are missing katherine brunt, sarah taylor, to care experienced players. when they come in, that blend of experience and youth, well that's the england get over the line? as we know, they were desperate to follow—up. know, they were desperate to follow-up. absolutely. it will bring a few selection headaches. amyjones has found form in this tournament. she is the second wicket—keeper but she is a world—class player in her own right. that is positive, i guess. australia were great, won't they? they won four after last five. you've got to be careful saying australia were great. they were

clinical. very diplomatically put. you won in sri lanka. that game seems to have been put on fast forward in sri lanka. the men were 200 runs ahead but we've seen four wickets this morning. we will chat about that on the cricket socials in the moment. it's a hard thing to do, winning away from home. it england we re winning away from home. it england were to win this test, there would have done that twice. one of them was on the 19th century. it will be remarkable. it england's women had done it, what a morning it would have been. every cloud, it balances it out. one of the star all—rounders for australia's, ellysse perry, it out. one of the star all—rounders foraustralia's, ellysse perry, her husband, match was playing in twickenham. quite the sporting dynasty. you mention the cricket

social. you can keep across england's vinyl tress —— final test by listening to the bbc sport website. you're watching breakfast from bbc news. the headlines: theresa may's withdrawal agreement is expected to be approved by eu leaders later, but the prime minister continues to face significant opposition among mps. she's written an open letter, appealing to the public to support her withdrawal deal, promising a "brighter future" after brexit. here's alina with a look at this morning's weather. good morning everyone. if you were under the gloom yesterday, the prospect of something brighter. feeling on the cold side because we still have this easterly wind and
6:42 am
this is yesterday's pressure, bringing outbreaks of rain and left in its way a legacy of showers through the tunnel so some are still clipping the coast but the cold air, the blue colours, but not for much longer because by the middle of the week it will be mild. sunday is shaping up with the easterly wind pushing showers across north—eastern and eastern coasts, getting further westwards a cross and eastern coasts, getting further westwards across even into eastern areas in the western parts of scotla nd areas in the western parts of scotland having some sunshine and some showers across the midlands, wales and southern england but more in the way of brightness than we saw yesterday but temperatures tempered all the while other moderate and sometimes fresh easterly winds that we will not see temperatures much higher than six or nine degrees. overnight, the showers will go across eastern and north—eastern coast is particularly, maybe even wintry across higher ground. dry across wales, central southern england, midlands, northern and western scotland and here under clear skies at temperatures closer to freezing so widespread frost
6:43 am
across parts of scotland, northern england and northern ireland, patchy further south but nonetheless a cold start where every new arm. few showers around, like the easterly winds but with the showers, likely to pile into eastern coast but for most dry day, some bright or sunny spells, still on the cool side, 6—9 temperatures, maybe ten across devon and cornwall with some afternoon sunshine. changes into tuesday, and atla ntic sunshine. changes into tuesday, and atlantic front, we haven't seen one for a while, pushing atlantic front, we haven't seen one fora while, pushing in, strengthening wind, bringing outbreaks of rain, as we go into tuesday morning, some is likely to be heavy. as it bumps into the cold airwe be heavy. as it bumps into the cold air we could see snow for a brief time on tuesday across the pennines, higher ground of scotland but elsewhere rain and some strong and gusty winds particular the western coast, these are average speeds, gus is likely to be higher over tuesday afternoon and the last day of the
6:44 am
lower temperatures switch will feel quite cold given the cloud, rain and wind, 6— 10 celsius but you can already see the milder air starting to ride into south—west england which is the trend is to go through the week ahead, slowly turning milder but we could this gales and also heavy rain at times so it is all changing. back to you. we mentioned actually a little bit earlier on the run on suggestions that could be heading for a really cold winter. this from the rail —— mail on sunday, it will be the cold est mail on sunday, it will be the coldest in eight years. oh, good! 2010, 2011... yes. well alina says it is early days and these are early modelling conditions but we will discuss this later. i also saw reports it will be cold but also really wet. it would set the alarm bells going. the minister the implementation at the cabinet
6:45 am
office, did you know that? it sounds like something out of monty python. they are looking at getting extra salty and full local councils and that sort of thing so it may not be a bad thing. take it with the big pinch of gritting salt. the headlines and the latest from brussels at seven o'clock. our travels this week begin in a european capital very familiar to many of us. a city that has become a market leader in cliches. i am here in the city of love, but also the city of cars. and plenty of them. one, though, in particular, stands out more than any other in the hearts of the french people. the citroen 2cv. and this year, she's turning 70. the 2cv was born in 1948, in the immediate aftermath of world war ii.
6:46 am
the very first prototypes, as well as the very last model and all the others in between, are kept here in the citroen heritage centre in the north of paris. here they are. they've really got character. and this one, you can probably see from the bullet holes, must have been from a bond film. for your eyes only. with its unique shape, the 2cv — short for "deux chevaux", or "two horses" — quickly came to fame, and not only in movies. within a few decades, the car became a common sight on france's roads. and in its countryside. the founding design principle of this car was four wheels under an umbrella. the idea of a light car with really good suspension, so you could drive over a field with four passengers and a basket of eggs on your lap. and by the end of yourjourney,
6:47 am
none of the eggs would be broken. more than 5 million were produced until the last one in 1990. they're also a fine addition to any weekend in the capital. bonjour! vincent, good to meet you. this must be it. vincent takes guided tours around paris. i'm definitely going to need a lesson, vincent. he will even let you drive if you ask nicely. and once you get the hang of it, it's really good fun. now, where is the gear stick? the gear stick is there. so you just turn that. if you want to press the first one. and pull. this is first, ok? and back to neutral. and push, and second. second. this is very unusual.
6:48 am
i know! it is unique. please excuse me if we bunny—hop up the street. driving a 2cv feels actually very different to any kind of modern car. you can feel the engine under your foot and the noise and it's not a car that goes very fast. but it's not the goal. it's a very kind of active experience. yeah. there is no sitting back and letting the car do its work. you have to be involved. yeah, exactly. and on the left, this is le louvre. museum. oh. is this something — i mean, do you think this is part of french identity? yes, of course, with the baguette and with the stripes. laughs. thank you for reminding me, we will
6:49 am
have to stop for ever get. —— we will have to stop for a baguette. you are very brave, because driving a 2cv car is not very easy. driving in paris is not very easy. driving a 2cv for the first time in paris is really brave. now you are making me nervous! there are no airbags, the windows are not electric, and as for ac? let's say that it is pretty rudimentary. but for some reason, the french really seem to love the 2cv. as long as that remains the case, the car that they call the "tin snail" will keep ploughing its own furrow on slow lanes everywhere. last year, slovakia in central europe welcomed a record number of tourists, attracted chiefly by the breathtaking landscapes and excellent skiing. the mountains there are stunning at any time of year but they also hide a shiny secret. we sent kate to the mountain resort

of hodrusa—hamre to find out more. take your place, get ready, go! welcome to the 2018 gold panning championships. a highly competitive gathering where emotions are running high. more than 500 competitors from 30 countries are here hoping to strike gold. so how does it all work? organisers fill a bucket with sand and hide tiny specks of gold in it, flown all the way from california. than competitors race to find all of the flakes. each bucket will contain the flakes. each bucket will contain the same number. for every one you miss, five minutes is added to your time. eager to try it myself, i
6:51 am
signed up for a lesson with british world champion daisy. the first thing you are going to need to do is poor that right into the centre of the pan and make like a bit of a mountain. and the new bill do big, flat circles. right under the water like that. perfect. what is going to help you with this is the specific gravity of gold, six times heavier than everything else in your pants to in the gold really wants to hit the bottom of the pan and stay there, like a rock. bit more power, give it some welly! that looks like championship panning. i really hope there is some gold in here. so shuffle and flatten and get everything in a semicircle like that. i think i can see some gold sparkles. yes, it absolutely shines like a beacon, doesn't it. oh, i'm delighted. on yourfirst go! brilliant! cap on, you don't want to lose those babies. thanks so much, daisy. no problem. just beyond the championship site, there is plenty of evidence
6:52 am
we are in a traditional mining town. it's hard to believe, but i have been told there is an estimated 70,000 euros worth of gold hidden within these piles of rocks here. itjust shows how important gold is to the area. it's very beautiful. richard is a local gold mine owner as well as a panning enthusiast. richard, how extensive are all the mines here? but life was hard underground. up until recently, the average miner lived to 40 years of age. over at the championship site, the race is back on.
6:53 am
it is the women's final and the place is heaving with excitement. some of these women are so fast, they found their specks within under a minute. applause. with all the flakes counted, i met the new world champion. how do you feel right now? pretty good! it has been a long week. it is a tough competition, so... it is good. butjust that i thought it was all over,... number22, kate from bbc! so i have been roped in to competing, and i am absolutely terrified. take your place...
6:54 am
get ready... go! chanting: bbc! bbc! it looks like i've got a fan club. woman: go, go, go, 90. 9°! thank you for the encouragement! this is so tough. my back is about to break. but the adrenaline is keeping me going. ok, i've got some gold. i would have thought gold panning was a rather relaxed, chilled sport but this is anything but. i think i am done. cheering and applause. thank you! i haven't done too bad for my first go. i found 18 flakes. unfortunately there is a beautiful sparkly one just here that i have missed,
6:55 am
but i did not finish last. so maybe a bit of beginner's luck. oh no! i missed loads. i later found out i actually came second last. so i think i've got what they call gold fever, and i'm off to find a stream to see if i can pan for some out here. what is wonderful about gold panning is you can have all the excitement and the rivalry and the noise, the competition, but then you can come out here and it is just you, the river, and hopefully a few flakes of gold. yesterday's programme has left you
