wide ranging support. 90,000 police and riot officers have been deployed across france, while tourist sites, shops and restaurants in paris will remain closed. 0ur correspondent, jon donnison, has more. the champs—elysees is shutting up shop. damage from previous protests plain to see. this weekend, businesses are not taking any chances. translation: it makes sense to close. we have lost a lot of money, me and my fellow shopkeepers. this is enough. almost 90,000 security forces are being deployed across the country. tourist sites, including the eiffel tower, are closed. the ferocity of the yellow vest protests have rocked the french government. what started as anger over fuel prices has morphed into a leaderless spectrum of interest groups, some of which are violent. translation: the yellow vests include pacifists with good
translation: the gilets jaunes include pacifists with good intentions, but also people who have been radicalised, exploited by extremist groups, and who want to topple the republic. faced with systematic, organised violence, our forces will respond with firmness. thousands of students have joined the protest. the government says they have been infiltrated by extremists. in one case, pupils were rounded up by police and forced to kneel outside their school. the core aim of the demonstrators has been to highlight economic hardship and distrust of france's petitions. —— politicians. the government describes the movement as a monster that is escaping its creators' control. jon donnison, bbc news, paris. six people have been killed and more than 100 injured in a stampede at a nightclub in northern italy, officials say. the incident took place at around iam near the eastern coastal city of ancona. about 1,000 people were at the lanterna azzurra club for a concert by an italian rapper when panic broke out,
reportedly after pepper spray was used. firefighters say dozens of others were injured as they rushed for the exit. the work and pensions secretary, amber rudd, has become the first government minister to openly back an alternative brexit strategy if theresa may's deal is rejected by the commons next week. speaking to the times, ms rudd said the so—called norway plus option seemed a plausible plan b, which would see the uk staying in the eu customs union with full access to the single market. 0ur political correspondent, nick eardley, reports. senior ministers travelled the country yesterday, selling theresa may's brexit deal. the government's message is the only show in town. but here in westminster, many believe the pm is fighting a losing battle and the talk in the corridors of power is what happens next. amber rudd has only been back in the cabinet a few weeks.
she supports theresa may's deal, but if it is defeated, she tells today's times she wants the norway model to be the plan b. that would been staying in the single market, with freedom of movement continuing. ms rudd argues the plan seems plausible: and although ending free movement has been a red line for the prime minister, ms rudd argues the immigration issue: back here, some are urging the pm to postpone tuesday's vote, such are their worries about a potentially humiliating defeat. but if it does go ahead and the deal is defeated, some are already thinking about the next steps. nick eardley, bbc news. a man captured on cctv who was believed by missing corrie mckeague's mother to be her son has identified himself to detectives. corrie was 23 when he went missing after a night out in bury st edmunds in september, 2016. police haven't released the footage,
but say they viewed it during their investigation into the airman‘s disappearance. these images are of corrie entering a bin loading bay, just before corrie disappeared. a man who drove his car into a crowd of protesters during a rally in the us city of charlottesville, during a rally in the us city of charlottesville has been found guilty of murder. 21—year—old alex fields junior was described by prosecutors as a white supremacist and was convicted on all 10 charges he faced, including killing 32—year—old civil rights activist heather heyer. a british sailor whose yacht was crippled by a ferocious storm during a round—the—world race has been rescued. susie goodall was sailing alone when she ran into trouble 2,000 miles off the coast of chile, leaving her stranded for days before a cargo vessell came to her to aid. andy moore reports. safety at last. the cargo ship that rescued susie goodall used its crane to winch her on board. she's reported to be uninjured
and in good spirits. it was an ordeal that began 50 hours earlier, when this distress call in the teeth of a ferocious storm. her yacht had lost its mast and water had to be pumped out. in one of the remotest places on earth, she had a long wait for help to arrive. she was tossed about, seasick, in a disabled boat, in heavy seas. it was a difficult rescue right to the end. the engine on susie's yacht kept cutting out as it manoeuvred alongside the rescue ship, the tian fu. and then the first news of success in a brief tweet. "0n the ship", she wrote, followed by three exclamation marks. in the time waiting to be rescued with a broken cooker, she said she'd been longing for a cup of tea. so it was no surprise that
in the second message she said she had enjoyed a very good hot drink. her friends welcomed the good news after an agonising wait. it was an absolutely huge relief, a massive relief, and i think everybody in our sailing community was just absolutely overjoyed by the news. susie is now on her way to chile. her dream of sailing solo around the world is over, for now, but at least she's safe. andy moore, bbc news. 0ne one other story for you this morning. an 8—year—old boy took control of a car travelling at 60mph after his mother blacked out at the wheel. lauren smith had a seizure while driving near colchester. her son, ben, turned on the hazard lights and drove onto the hard shoulder before the car stalled. a rare scottish wildcat born at chester zoo has been captured on camera for the first time. bosses at the zoo say

the police are treating this as a homicide. they're questioning a man of interest, a 26—year—old man the last to be seen with grace millane on the saturday night. they were going into the city life hotel, they've also secured a vehicle of interest and they've mention there are items missing from grace's belongings, which were found in the hostel they were staying in. abedi casio watch, a silver pendant and her passport —— a baby. there are clues coming together but we don't know much more than that at the moment. what do you think the police hope to achieve by releasing images of those items, her necklace and her watch? it's interesting, they actually released those photos before they said they were treating it as before they said they were treating itasa before they said they were treating it as a homicide, so that was to try to elicit more information from the public in case anyone had seen anything, perhaps someone was trying to sell these things, perhaps it was a red herring, it's not very clear.
there still publish rising this, they're still trying to get more information from people and they're keeping it all quite under wraps about the man their questioning —— publish rising. what's the response been like in new zealand over the last few days? it's a case that's ca ptu red last few days? it's a case that's captured people's imagination. it's probably the same in the uk, people with children themselves, a lot of young people go travelling. i think people are very emotional about the story. it's been really closely followed. this is a major news story here, as it would be in many places around the world. but new zealand is around the world. but new zealand is a small country, they really welcome visitors and they're absolutely horrified something like this has happened. a heart, heartfelt response to the father when he came on and spoke about his daughter and there was hope then, people hoped she would be found alive. it's a shock today on this lovely sunny
saturday that the news has come out that it's being treated as a homicide. in terms of places you can go travelling, new zealand would be pretty low on the wrist list if you like, how rare is this? -- risk list. this is really rare and there have been cases over the decades. there we re been cases over the decades. there were swedish backpackers in 1989. a german backpacker in 2005 and to be able to reel this off, it sounds like it's a common thing but it's really rare, people are really shocked by this happening. as i say, it's a small country, small population, very friendly and there's not a high crime rate so people are staggered that something like this can happen in one of our main cities. gill, thank you for speaking to us this morning. gill higgins in auckland. here's matt with a look at this morning's weather. a windy night across the country,
wins peaking at 60 mph, if not more in the north—west of england. —— winds. we'll continue without windy theme on saturday, a few showers around at times. tomorrow, the winds will be lighter, drier, chillier and sunnier. 0ut there at the moment, this swirl of low cloud is the area of low pressure driving the stronger winds and you will notice the clouds going from north—west to the south—east, a cold wind blowing this morning as well as a strong one with gales in places. showers in scotland, england and wales at the moment, fading for a time this morning, sunny in eastern areas but through the morning, showers returning with more cloud in the isle of man, wales, south—west england and other parts of england, wales and southern scotland. central northern scotland, as the winds fall lighter, fewer showers around, typical gusts through the day. still touching gale force in some spots, strongest winds around the western coasts. that will add up to a
slightly cooler feel then temperatures would suggest but they'll pick up a bit compared to this morning. tonight we continue with showers in northern ireland, southern scotland, northern england and much of england and wales. the winds coming in from that westerly direction will dry the showers eastwards, some heavy at times and in southern and western coasts and we will see stronger blast of wind, maybe 70 mph can't be ruled out. as we see this squeeze in the isobars ahead of a cold front sinking its way south through sunday. that will open the door too much colder air, a chilly start across scotland, some frost in some spots, especially in the north and west but lots of sunshine to begin with. tomorrow morning in wales, central, southern england, some cloud, a few showers fading, lots of sunshine on sunday. showers in northern andes and coasts and later into northern ireland and wales, more outbreaks of rain —— and eastern coasts. temperatures for
most will‘ is but at least the winds will be lighter, even if it does feel that bit colder —— single figures. as the winds fall lighter, temperatures dropping. still cloud and showers down the western side of the country for a time, especially in north wales, north—west midlands, north england. for monday morning, very frosty and cold start across scotland, north—east england and even further south. the slight breeze we have will add to the morning commute chill. into next week, it‘s going to be a case of weather systems battling it out, low pressure to the east and the west, so pressure to the east and the west, so what‘s going to wind? the milder air across western areas or the colder air air across western areas or the colderair in air across western areas or the colder air in the east? we‘ll keep you updated. back to charlie and tina. this we‘ll have all the headlines shortly, but first, 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. so, mark — what do we have this week? very good week. be robert redford‘s final performance on—screen. we‘ve sorry to bother you, a socioeconomic satire, a sundance hit. and white boy rick, it is true story with a great ensemble cast. the old man and the gun, robert redford, he is what, 82? 112, i think. i met him number of years ago. name dropper! i was really impressed. the best thing about him
is that you looks his age. he has weathered fantastically well. no botox? not as far as i can tell. he says this is his last film. it is based on a true story of an american career criminal and perennial jailbreaker. he is the old man of the title who with accomplices robs small banks. the way they do it is a very low—key, very understated. so polite, it‘s almost as if people don‘t notice that it‘s happened. certainly, the law don‘t start joining the dots for a long time. here‘s a clip. 0h.
don't cry. this is my first day. there's always a first time for everything. chin up! doing a greatjob. chin up! super sparkly. it‘s shot with super 16 to give it a retro feel. is the robbery and any start—up relationship with sissy spacek. she says, what do you do. he says, if you told —— ever told you what did, you told —— ever told you what did, you wouldn‘t want to be associated. she kind of nose and doesn‘t know.
meanwhile, casey affleck‘s detective is sort of starting to realise that all these jobs from the over the hill gang or have a similar m 0 and he starts to be on the tale. what i loved about this, the performances arejust loved about this, the performances are just great. robert redford and sissy spacek are completely believable, they are affectionately drawn. they just talk and spend believable, they are affectionately drawn. theyjust talk and spend time together, it‘s beautiful. ensemble cast, great work from the likes of tom waits and danny glover. it‘s got a feel to it that chimes very much with redford‘s screen career. if you look back to butch cassidy and the sundance kid and the sting, we‘ve seen him doing cons and robberies in the movie uses some stuff from his back catalogue very cleverly. i thought it was lovely, it was charming, it had an edge to it and his character does this stuff because he is kind of in love with
it, and it did with it. why is he smiling all the time? he seems to enjoy what he is doing. it‘s very gentle but it‘s not fluff. it has real substance. you really believe in those characters. i pulled it was wonderful. as i smiled. never say never, he will have a million offers to do something else but it will be a great note to end on because it‘s such a great film. sorrry to bother you, it is a surreal satire set in an alternative present 0akland. a young man struggling to rent. he ta kes a young man struggling to rent. he takes a job with telemarketing and is told by danny glover again, who is told by danny glover again, who is his workmate, your problem is you need to use your white voice. what is that? the white boys is the voice that sounds relaxed and casual and is the voice that your callers think
they want to sound like andy does this, suddenly he starts climbing up the ladder and it puts at odds with his friends were going on strike and what the whole film is about, it‘s a satire about capitalism and modern slavery and a story about selling out and when you sell out, what you lose and what everyone around you lose and what everyone around you lose is. it‘s very funny. but it shifts slowly during the course of the movie from a satire to something thatis the movie from a satire to something that is much more surreal and weird and drifts into the territory of horror and science fiction and if you think of something like oh, lucky man, the film which starts off asa lucky man, the film which starts off as a story of a tea salesmen and becomes really weird or a film called society, this is free much on the same wavelength. some people said they can‘t take the shift but it‘s consistent, right from the beginning, it has a very strange twist, it is very funny, and i thought it was really good. white
boy rick, the story of a teenager who became an undercover informant for the fbi. apparently, the fbi‘s youngest informant at the age of 1a in the early 80 ‘s. youngest informant at the age of 1a in the early 80 's. it is directed byjan de in the early 80 's. it is directed by jan de bont in the early 80 's. it is directed byjan de bont who made 71, a great indication of that period. matthew mcconaghy is that father. bruce stern and piper lori other grandparents. we are introduced to them as a disparate dysfunctional family on the streets of detroit. dad! 0h, family on the streets of detroit. dad! oh, christ, keep going, i've got it under control. you don't need to stop the car, pop, everything is fine. everything is not fine. amanda stoker and out of your house and you don‘t have a god dammed thing under control. you‘re going to let a talk to you like that bastion might go into the god dammed house, a have it
under control. stay out of it, it looks like richard is having a bad day. not having a bad day. i walked into the lion 's den this morning and walked out with a golden fleece, ricky? you are pathetic, but the view. put some clothes on, will you? we are going for custard.|j view. put some clothes on, will you? we are going for custard. i love matthew mcconaghy. the whole ensemble. is that under control! bruce stern is great. 19705 belfast, great in 71. this is an evocation of 805 detroit. quine and guns and drugs but what it is primarily interested in is the family and the fa ct interested in is the family and the fact that at the beginning we are introduced to the young kid going into a introduced to the young kid going intoa gun introduced to the young kid going into a gun show with his father and he has learnt the ropes from his dad, his dad has passed on what he thinks but the skills get into a life5tyle which is racked with danger and misery. what i liked about it, the film has a strange new and feel to it.
it is based on a true story. you find yourself being more involved in the interrelations between the characters than in the actual gun sales and drug sales. jenniferjason leigh is terrific as the fbi agent who sees this kid on the street and things we can use them. it takes a family who the film can be very tough on and actually makes the characters are very sympathetic. you do see the world from their point of view. the dad says, we have to do something to get out of this. i thought it was very good. it‘s not for everybody, it will struggle to find an audience. best out at the moment? still, shoplifters. a prizewinner at cannes, a story about people living on the margins in tokyo. again, it begins with what you think is a father and a son teaching the son shoplifting. someone says, why do
you teach him shoplifting? he says, it‘s what i know. it‘s what i do. it very, very human and i like it and it‘s spending time with characters you believe in. a film with a dark heart. for the record, i enjoyed disobedience, which you recommend it‘s great. 0verall, very good. again, a very difficult subject. often difficult to put on film. i thought rachel mcadams was very convincing. i thought it was terrific as well. best dvd? mission impossible, fallout. who knew the mission impossible series was going to get better and better? six, seven. we think with this, it‘s not ironic. it‘s a proper nuts and bolt edge of your seat
action thriller. it‘s got fantastically executed set pieces. what i really like about it is that it‘s a very modern but feels very physical. it feels oddly old—fashioned for all it‘s modern trappings. it moves at the speed of a bullet and as a very good film. tom cruse is great in that role. he‘s not for everyone but he‘s really good in that role. he has seen this franchise from strength to strength. he has hurt himself badly doing all the stunts. in fact, the stunt in which he hurt himself is in the film. when you see it in the film, you feel the pain! you wince. martk, thank you very much good to have you with us again. a quick reminder before we go that you‘ll find more film news and reviews from across the bbc online at bbc.co.uk/markkermode. and you can find all our previous programmes on the bbc iplayer. that‘s it for this week. thank you so much for watching.

established that this is a homicide. grace‘s family have been advised of this development, and they are devastated. the man is still being spoken to at this point. paris is in virtual lockdown today amid fears of a fourth straight weekend of violence from anti—government demonstrations. the yellow vest movement began as a protest about fuel tax rises but has attracted wide ranging support. 90,000 police and riot officers have been deployed across france, while tourist sites, shops and restaurants in paris will remain closed. six people have been killed and more than 100 injured, in a stampede at a nightclub in northern italy, officials say. the incident took place at around 1am near the eastern coastal city of ancona. about 1,000 people were at the lanterna azzurra club for a concert by an italian rapper when panic broke out, reportedly after pepper spray was used. firefighters say dozens of others were injured as they rushed for the exit.
the work and pensions secretary, amber rudd, has become the first government minister to openly back an alternative brexit strategy, if theresa may‘s deal is rejected by the commons next week. speaking to the times, ms rudd said the so—called norway plus option seemed a plausible plan b, which would see the uk staying in the eu customs union with full access to the single market. under this proposal, freedom of movement and payments to brussels would be likely to continue. a man who drove his car into a crowd of protesters during a rally in the us city of charlottesville has been found guilty of murder. 21—year—old alex fields junior was described by prosecutors as a white supremacist and was convicted on all 10 charges he faced, including killing 32—year—old civil rights activist, heather heyer. a british sailor whose yacht was crippled by a ferocious storm in a round—the—world race has been rescued. this dramatic picture shows susie goodall being wynched to safety yesterday, by a 40,000—tonne cargo ship. she‘d been left stranded for two days after her boat violently capsized, 2,000 miles off the coast of chile.

outside a bristol mike love in september last year. the latest thing they were facing was a disciplinary hearing for bringing the game into disrepute by an independent commission, but they have served their suspensions, so it‘s a case of fines now, so they can continue to play —— bristol nightclub. back in august in court, stokes was found not guilty of affray after a fight outside a bristol nightclub in september last year. he has now been fined £30,000 by the commission, while hales, who neverfaced a criminal charge, has been ordered to pay £17,500, of which £10,000 is suspended. former england captain michael vaughan says the whole matter has had a big effect on stokes. i think he regrets the incident hugely. i think he knows he‘s got to change a little bit, i think he knows he has to just change the way he isa knows he has to just change the way he is a little bit. errm, since he‘s come back into the team, that test
match in nottingham after the case, i‘ve seen a cricketer that obviously we know is exceptional. the manchester city manager pep guardiola says they will not be banned from the champions league despite allegations that they‘ve broken financial fair play rules. these are the regulations put in place by uefa to stop clubs from spending beyond their means. allegations were made last month suggesting they‘d hidden millions of pounds to get around these rules, but guardiola says senior figures at city have assured him there is nothing to worry about. manchester city are away to chelsea this evening. before that, liverpool could go top if they win at bournemouth. plenty of build—up on the bbc sport website. there was a controversial ending to last night‘s championship game. a brilliant goal from anwar el ghazi put aston villa ahead against their west midlands rivals west brom, and it looked to be the winner until a stoppage—time equalier, which clearly came off the hand ofjay rodriguez. it stood, though, and it finished 2—2. villa were furious. the hand of rod!

seventh uk championship title. he takes on tom ford in the semi—finals after beating martin 0‘donnell 6—1, though 0‘suliivan said it took him a while to settle into the match. i was just i wasjust a i was just a bit on edge, i wasjust a bit on edge, you know, just trying to feel my way into it and it‘s never good because you got to try and impose yourself as much as you can. probably a really good match for me because i had to play some match for me because i had to play so m e safety match for me because i had to play some safety and be patient. sometimes i‘m not taking my match form immediately onto the match floor, i‘m finding my feet. i know my game‘s there, it‘s night, nice to just get it right from the off, you know? there was a glitzy ceremony in st petersburg last night to present lewis hamilton with his formula 1 world championship trophy. he won his fifth title back in october, but had to wait to get his hands on the prize. mercedes also collected their trophy for winning the constructors‘ championship. admiring his green trousers. like golf are! admiring his green trousers. like golfare! —— admiring his green trousers. like golf are! —— like golfer‘s trousers.
now, you might remember we recently showed you pictures of andy murray‘s unusual gym routine. well, the former world number one has been at it again, this time with a pretty impressive hula hoop work out. we did the hula hoop challenge at wimbledon last year, maybe it is from that! impressive skills. i want to try this in the garden. it is about balance. impressive hula hoop routine, balance, control, core strength. hopefully it will help him at the australian open next month. it looks good. i promised you cute dogs and fast dogs! go on then. every year thousands of owners dream of lifting the silver trophy and being champions of the world of dog agility. the 12 remaining teams are in training for their world cup, the grand final at the london international horse show at olympia later this month, and i‘ve been to a training camp in kent to see how hard it can be. the races is on to be top dog for 2018, and while it may look like the dogs are doing all the work here, tearing around the 260 metre course
at over 30 mph, this is a team sport with the owners donnacona‘s and fitness, voice commands and hand signals crucial to success. it's signals crucial to success. it‘s all over in less than a minute but it‘s such high—intensity, the energy required by the owner. the competitions have been going since 1978 and now have become so widespread that 48 nations from around the world compete. the world cup 0lympia is one of the highlights of the dog calendar. it's of the dog calendar. it‘s our fa cup final. 0lympia, with all the hype and the people and the noise and the excitement, it‘s great to be there and to actually win it is just to be there and to actually win it isjust something to be there and to actually win it is just something else. to be there and to actually win it isjust something else. the 12 finalists competing at olympia this month have spelt all year beating off thousands of other owner and dog teams to reach this point. off thousands of other owner and dog teams to reach this pointlj off thousands of other owner and dog teams to reach this point. i like to be as fit as i can to keep up with my be as fit as i can to keep up with 5. be as fit as i can to keep up with my dogs. sam‘s not the most naturally motivated dog so to get the rigours time out of him i need
to be as fit as i can. amongst the favourites will be shannon. she reached herfirst 0lympia final when she was just ten. when you actually run, and you‘re so focused, you hear nothing because it‘s literally just you focused, you hear nothing because it‘s literallyjust you and your dog on that course. you hear nothing going on in the background. i‘m probably not the fittest person, definitely not the skinniest out there but i do really tried. a decade later, shannon has managed to get every dog she is trained to the final. the athletes are in fine physical condition, there in to go. i think the same can be said about the owners too and for this breakfast 0lympia warmup race, missing one thing, a dog, my former lab lurcher is no longer with us. i have got a lead, though, and i persuaded a former 0lympia champion to come out of retirement. a quick recce first to work out the signals. i didn‘t realise they were so many different
signals with your hand, your arms, your late position. your arm comes across the chest, though dog only sees this hand. etzebeth strictly! indiana is the only dog to have one at olympia two years running. can she do the same with a complete novice? —— it‘s a bit strictly. i confuse my dog partner with all the wrong signals and body positioning. you‘ve got to be thinking ahead and keep working in front of them all the time telling them what‘s happening. i did have more success with a different dog may be more my size. my trousers! but i was starting to take it personally. even my attempts to demonstrate just fell on floppy ears. not the weave, not the weave! 0verhear! i did eventually get around with that first dog, indiana, but it had taken overfour first dog, indiana, but it had taken over four minutes. it was of years that to succeed i needed to start right at the beginning and work
towards the finals in maybe a few yea rs‘ towards the finals in maybe a few years‘ time. that‘s more my level. beautiful. ten weeks old. if i started there, i‘d have more chance. even with a two—time world champion, indiana, i got nowhere. some breeds are going to be better at that than others, aren‘t they? to be better at that than others, aren't they? there's all sorts, the pointer, border collie is, jack russell cross sam sam dashboard coalitions. good, mike —— here‘s matt with a look at this morning‘s weather. a bit mixed this weekend. quite blustery, a windy night. strong winds continuing today. all the way through till tonight. lots of showers to go with it but tomorrow, drier. sonny. also chile. 0ut there at the moment, this world mcleod is
an area of low pressure. it‘s been feeding in north—westerly winds. gusts around the irish sea coast. showers around first thing the many in england and wales but then more coming through the day so a bit of sunshine and cloudy conditions through the afternoon. 0utbreaks sunshine and cloudy conditions through the afternoon. outbreaks of rain coming through. a bit of sunshine as well. lighter winds across scotland but just sunshine as well. lighter winds across scotland butjust an example of some of the gusts still touching gale force, maybe 50 mph, some of these western coasts and hills. temperatures up a bit on yesterday‘s values. quite chilly in the breeze. that breeze is a key feature into tonight, especially across parts of southern scotland. further south, this is where we see wind gusts 50, 60, may be 70 mph. and through the english channel especially. it might
be another difficult not to get to sleep. temperatures appear but a cold night across parts of scotland and northern england. a touch of frost around in two tomorrow morning. the strongest of the winds across southern areas. starting to see the door open. with it, much, much colder air pushing southwards. for tomorrow, wales, the midlands, southern england, occasional showers. they will fade away, lots of sunshine to many. reducing showers and showers in northern scotland, turning increasingly wintry. many of you stick in single figures. the winds will be a little bit lighter. whether breeze will add to the windchill. even with the wind more light into sunday night, showers in the west, seeing clearer skies around and that means into next week, we start the week with a
commute across scotland and parts of northern england, down to the east. temperatures below freezing. in the west, more cloud. temperaturesjust above freezing for many. next week, we see the battle taking place, colder air trying to push it across the east. for those two weeks, there are saved, a little of snow over the hills and we will keep you updated. i like the idea of a battle between caldaire and mild. who is going to win? let‘s see who fights it out in winds next week. we‘ll have all the headlines shortly. but first, it‘s time for click with spencer kelly. planet earth is under attack from us.
we are failing to meet the targets to slow down global warming. if we do not take action, the collapse of our civilisations and the extinction of much of the natural world is on the horizon. we‘re all told how much we throw away every single day. but, wow, i have to say, this place really rams it home. this is where the mixed recycling bins outside our homes end up so they can be sorted into different materials. there‘s a really mechanical way
of sorting the recycling into different sizes and shapes. smaller, lighter bits of paper get thrown over the top. the smaller, heavier objects fall through the gaps. and the heavier, larger objects roll down these wheels to be collected at the bottom. this plant can sort 230 tons of waste in a day. that‘s almost 30 trucks‘ worth, although it‘s just a fraction of what we throw away. and the problem is not all of our plastic ends up in the recycling. and even then, not all of it can be recycled. i think the truth is, a lot of us pop the plastic into the recycling bin and we think that‘s it, job done, our conscience is clear. but, of course, it‘s nowhere near as simple as that. but there are some people who have
decided to deal with plastics in a much more drastic manner. well, it all started at home, during the preparation of our dinner. first we decided to try to experience zero waste at home, to avoid contributing constantly to this tremendous problem all around the world. so i thought, "well, what can i do with waste plastic?" not a toy, or a sculpture, or an adorable thing, but something useful. everybody said, "well, you can't do this. it's not possible. " meet liesbeth and edwin, two ordinary people with extraordinary ambitions. they‘ve spent the past three years designing and building a solar—powered vehicle that‘s almost entirely made of plastic from the rubbish bin.
and we‘re notjust talking about a vehicle to drive on their local, flat dutch roads. no, this is one built to withstand the toughest conditions — antarctica. the couple will drive 2,400 kilometres from union glacier to the south pole and back... ..in a car made from rubbish. they want to show just how wasteful it is to throw away plastic in the quantities that we do. this actually the raw material we use building the solar voyager. it is collected by children from the primary school. we call it "urban mining". they sort it, the waste plastics, on types, and they have cleaned it and made these chips out of it. what you see is that they are starting to feel more attached with the material, because they do not see it as waste, they see it as raw material for building the solar.
the plastic shreds are melted into a filament for a 3—d printer. 30 of these have been working continuously for six weeks to produce a a,000—piece of plastic jigsaw puzzle designed to fit together to make the shell, the interior and two trailers. to test the durability, the couple took the vehicle to iceland in april. the pace looks slow and it is — four kilometres per hour, but they plan to drive the solar voyager during every hour of antarctic sunlight that‘s available which, at this time of year, is 2a hours a day. and so, in continuous shifts of three hours, they‘ll navigate some of the trickiest terrain on earth. wednesday the 28th of november —
the solar voyager has arrived at base camp. after years of prep, it‘s day one of the mission. we‘re heading for south pole. at the moment, with a speed of 2.5 knots nautical miles per hour. this is amazing. this is super, super cool. the entire round trip could take a0 days, which means liesbeth and edwin should be on their way back from the south pole, when they get to celebrate a drastic but fantastic plastic christmas. and just when the ice goes, the truck goes away and out of sight out of mind.
the drone is sending the live video feed back to a device on—boa rd the boat. whilst the operator can control exposure and camera settings climate predictions are based on solid data, some going as far back as a few hundred years. in reading at the national centre for atmospheric science, the old weather instruments are still in use alongside the modern ones. now, the reason that they‘re still using these pretty old—fashioned devices is for consistency. so you know the readings you‘re getting today were measured in exactly the same way they were 100 or 150 years ago. supercomputers crunch sea, ice and dust data from past years and try to simulate the weather that occurred in each year. now it‘s been fine tuned to correctly reflect what‘s actually happened, researchers have started changing the environment and watching the effects. what we can do with the model is we can lower the temperature in this part of the world and see
whether or not we still produce that many hurricanes. i‘m assuming then you have done that, you have lowered the sea temperature to see how it affected the number of hurricanes, what happened? it certainly played a role, around half of the hurricanes happen because the sea surface temperature was up warmer that year. professor vidal also told me in the future tropical storms are predicted to originate further north, and importantly curve east and back towards europe. so that means that parts of the world that have never had to be hurricane—ready before will have to start thinking hurricanes? yes, they do. but the search is on for cleaner, greener forms of energy. the most established alternative to burning fossil fuels is solar power, and lara has travelled to a very special island just off norway. we‘ve travelled west now to 05t norway. it is so calm here. it is absolutely beautiful. but not far from here, the waves can reach up to three metres, and that‘s where we‘re
heading because we‘re going to go and take a look at an island that is made up of solar panels, and the idea is that they need to fare 0k whatever the weather. oh, thank you! i‘ve made it. wow, we‘re walking on water! these certainly aren‘t the first floating solar panels, but the innovation being tested here is the fabric itself, creating a cost—effective weather resistant material that could easily be scaled. there‘s talk of a setup near the equator the size of a football pitch. this has been designed to withstand wind, rain and ice. but round the edges, these barriers prevent any seawater from getting in. so while you can see i‘m standing in a pretty large puddle right now, that‘s from last night‘s rain. what i‘m actually standing on is less than 1mm thick, and it really feels it,
it‘s quite hard to stay balanced. it‘s made from polyester coated in a polymer. what makes this polymer special is how lightweight yet strong it is, meaning it‘s ideal for this type of installation. in the not too distant future, we think we can build systems that are comparable with the so—called ground mount installations on land, and that will be a big breakthrough for floatable parks. because then you have suddenly large surface areas where you can build cheap, renewable energy very close to large consumer groups. and making use ofjust a fraction of the sea‘s vast surfaces area, as well as taking advantage of the water‘s ability to keep the panels cool, means that the scaling of this does seem plausible. the solar power being harnessed is being used here on this fish farm.
now, the island has been developed to be the exact right size to harness the right amount of power in the summertime, that‘s presuming the weather‘s good. the rest of the year it‘s running on diesel, so obviously you can see the environmental benefits of this. but the suggestion is an island this size, if anchored in the london area, could power 20 average uk homes. make the island the size of a football pitch, and that could rise to 200. but, of course, the investment needed is huge, so moving forward on this could prove more complicated than the proof of concept. that was lara in norway. you know, if you‘ve seen the pixar film wall—e, you‘ll know that in the distant future, the earth gets covered in cubes of rubbish like this, mountains of these cubes and humanity has to leave.
and at the moment, no matter how much recycling we do, i get the feeling that that future is getting more and more likely. something‘s gotta be done. see ya. good morning. welcome to breakfast, with tina daheley and charlie stayt. 0ur headlines today: police in new zealand are treating the disappearance of backpacker grace millane as murder. a 26—year—old man is being questioned. paris in lockdown as security services brace for a fourth weekend of protests. amber rudd has become the first cabinet minister to openly propose plan b if theresa may‘s brexit deal is rejected by mp5. the hand of rod earns west brom a controversial draw in the west midlands derby in the championship. aston villa up in arms over jay rodriguez‘s goal. even though he didn‘t really mean
it! and it‘s supposed to be a display of athleticism and accuracy, but i‘m left chasing my own tail when i gave dog agility a go. good morning. another windy day to come today, even windier tonight across parts of southern england. them tomorrow, it turns colder. all the details right here on breakfast. —— then.
