for england there's bitter disappointment. for south africans it's a triumphant moment, for a sport that's come to represent huge change in their nation. our correspondent milton nkosi has the latest from johannesburg. this match was followed very closely, south africans jubilance that they won this welcome. for the third time, more than any other country, because they wanted three times. and they are celebrating even now, if you look at this table here... they've been celebrating all afternoon. this celebration continues in the townships, the towns, and the villages of this country. but they are also celebrating south africa's first black captain, who led the team in yokohama today. because he comes from a humble beginning in 2007, when south africa beat england in
france and won the world cup, his family could not even afford a television set. he had to go and watch it in a nearby public. and his father has, for the first time, travelling abroad, ever, went to japan to see his son lift that trophy. so there is so much history around this victory. it's notjust about the score that we see on the screen. estimate must‘ve screen. estimate must‘ve been a magical tournament for his family to be able tournament for his family to be able to enjoy and experience that for real in the stadium. how has the south africans at home been following this tournament, because by following this tournament, because rugby is big in south africa, but there are lots of other things going on right now. 0h, there are lots of other things going on right now. oh, yes indeed. there are so many on right now. oh, yes indeed. there are so many other sporting events, football is very big here, cricket hasn't been doing that well, so this by hasn't been doing that well, so this rugby when will certainly lift the
spirits of south africans. particularly the cricketers, who have been battling with the test matches against india. but more than that, the unemployment rate statistics came out this week, nearly 30%, the highest in ii statistics came out this week, nearly 30%, the highest in 11 years, it stands at 29.1%, inequality, poverty, all of these things are weighing very heavily on south africans. and they feel that they needed this win to just lift them up, and maybe jump—start needed this win to just lift them up, and maybejump—start the economy into the growth levels that it requires. you will remember that we had the xenophobic attacks not so long ago. so people do feel a little bit of a relief to celebrate and forget some of the serious challenges that this country faces. and underline the importance, i suppose some of the rugby team being able to act as a symbol for a multiethnic south africa, in which all races are equal. quite a sight to see a black captain holding that
trophy hi. yes, indeed. and social cohesion, which is really the lesson that nelson mandella taught this country in 1995, just a year fresh out of apartheid, he said embrace the springboks —— springboks, embrace rugby, and south africans followed his lead. and today he is doing exactly what they taught him. and south africans believed in the 12 year cycle superstition. it was a 1995 they wanted for the first time, 12 years later in 2007, they won in france. and guess what? the year is today, it's 12 years since then. so wait for another 12 years, perhaps. millions of rugby fans were watching in england, south africa, and around the world, as the springboks claimed their third world cup title. rupert wingfield hayes reports. as the final whistle blew in yokohama, half a world away in johannesburg,
the streets erupted in celebration. the people of the rainbow nation dancing and singing together. for south african fans who had made the long trip to japan, it was also a moment of pure ecstasy. how does it feel? amazing! did you come herejust for this? yes! we love it and we love the people also. amazing! huge disappointment here for england tonight but what a night for south africa and what a night forjapan which has hosted this amazing world cup and now has thousands of new rugby fans. these young japanese fans looked almost as excited as their new south african friends. before the world cup, they told me they had never watched a rugby match.
why do you like south africa? because they have an amazing team, that is why we love them. in yokohama and back in england, the faces of the fans said it all. the nation's rugby team had come so close, even defeating the all blacks but today they were systematically beaten. from the start we didn't i am absolutely gutted. south africa played really well. i was disappointed that england didn't win. but tonight has been a huge victory for rugby. the japanese people have welcomed rugby with open arms, many new friendships and new rugby fans made. the day's other main news now, and the government has asa as a result of the strong winds and
bad weather over the parts of the uk this afternoon, this is from police in dorset, who say that a woman has died following a traffic collision in the east of the county. dorset police were called at about 20 to nine this morning to a report of a collision between a car and a tree between the 830 one road. the tree had fallen on the car, apparently. the driver of the car, was a forward b max, a local woman in her 60s was pronounced dead at the scene. her next of kin has already been informed. the police are saying that they are offering assistance, of course, to the family, and continuing the investigation, asking for witnesses. anybody who might have seen exactly what happened, and of course reminding people that at this time, the weather is particularly, the strong winds, you should be avoiding unnecessary journeys. a woman in her 60 sadly died this morning on the a 30 one
road in east dorset after a tree a p pa re ntly road in east dorset after a tree apparently fell on her car. in other news, the government has suspended fracking in england for the forseeable future. the ban comes after a technical report said it was not possible to predict the probability or size of severe earth tremors caused by the extraction of shale gas from the ground. labour, the liberal democrats and the green party have called for the ban to be made permanent. our business correspondent katie prescott reports. it's been one of the most controversial issues of the last decade. fracking, the process of getting gas from rocks using pressurised water and chemicals. but the resulting earthquakes and disruption have infuriated local communities and environmental campaigners. they are delighted by today's news. i'm absolutely delighted. we knew that a decision was going to come out, last night, at midnight in fact, but we daren't hope that it was
going to be as good as it is. 0k, it isn't a band but it is a moratorium and i can't see how the moratorium can be lifted until they can prove that fracking can be done safely. the government had hoped that sites like these would change our energy landscape, providing an abundant home—grown source of fuel that would reduce our gas import and cut carbon emissions. but now they have changed their mind, stopping just short of a permanent ban. there is no doubt that extracting more natural gas in the united kingdom would be very attractive but we have always been clear, we can only do that if it can be done safely. we will follow the science, so in future, should the ability to be certain about seismic events and so on, we will look at it again. but labour says they do not trust the government's u—turn and feel it could be an election ploy. today the regulator says it is not safe because it can't predict how many earthquakes fracking will cause and it says that the impact on local communities is unacceptable.
as a result, companies must stop their operations. fracking's industry body says it is fully committed to working with regulators to demonstrate it can operate safely. and that 72% of the uk's gas will be imported by 2035 if we don't take advantage of our shale gas. the big question now is whether the industry will be willing to invest any more money here in the hope that the science will one day find in their favour and the regulation could change. katie prescott, bbc news. 0ur correspondent phillip norton is at the site preston new road outside blackpool, where fracking was suspended in august after a number of tremors. phillip, tell us about what happened at the site? and what has been the reaction of campaigners? yes, so this is the site where much
of the concern about fracking and the processes involved with fracking have been centred on for many people around the country, because this is the site where the resources have been using to try to extract some of the shale gas from the ground beneath, but it was here in august where there was a magnitude 2.9 earthquake that was triggered by the work that was going on here. that was the most severe of a number of tremors that have happened in recent yea rs, of tremors that have happened in recent years, when some of this work has been taking place, and the strength of feeling here is quite something. you only have to drive around many of the roads leading to the site, for many miles, there are banners, posters from both the community and the protesters. and just over my other shoulder is the camp at the protesters and campaigners have been manning for many years. such is the strength of feeling here. they wanted to hear the news that's being announced today. they are obviously very happy. now, i was today. they are obviously very happy. now, iwas going today. they are obviously very happy. now, i was going to ask you how they reacted to it, presumably it's too late, but is there any sort of reservation about the fact it's a moratorium and not a band? yes,
there is obviously a celebration here today, but there's also a sense of caution as well. some people here that we've spoken to say that they feel this may be a bit of an electioneering as well, and i will just redo some of the things that people have been telling us here today. a spokesperson from lancashire said it's a very important day, they feel this is the end for this site, but they feel a moratorium doesn't amount to a band. another campaigner said that it's good news for the whole country, not just for this part of lancashire. common sense has prevailed. while another man said he was delighted and that on the face of it he said that the government has now listen to what they have been telling them for eight years. but he also said that he feels it's electioneering, that he feels it's electioneering, that he feels it's electioneering, that he is concerned about the support that he says borisjohnson our prime minister has given to fracking in the past. and actually, on that note, jeremy corbyn, the leader of the labour party tweeted today that this was an election stu nts, today that this was an election stunts, and that labour, he said, would ban fracking permanently. now
on that note as well, business secretary, andrea letson, has said officially that it may be temporary. she said that it's imposed until, and unless, she said, fracking is proved to be safe. and she's told the bbc that shale gas is a huge opportunity for the uk, that we will follow the for science, and it is quite clear that we cannot be certain, she said, the science isn't accurate enough to be able to assessed the fault lines, the geological studies have been shown to be inaccurate. so therefore, she said, unless, and untilwe can to be inaccurate. so therefore, she said, unless, and until we can be absolutely certain, we are imposing absolutely certain, we are imposing a moratorium. so that's what's prompted the sense of caution, really, for many of the protesters and campaigners who have been manning the site for many years. yes, they are happy, but they say they are going to carry on protesting until a full band is brought and enacted and put into play. philip at the sites, thanks very much. at least 13 people have been killed in a bomb explosion near a market in the syrian town of tal abyad, close to the turkish border. tal abyad lies in territory recently taken from kurdish forces
when the turkish military launched a cross—border incursion. the headlines on bbc news... south africa have won the rugby world cup final — after convincingly beating england 32—12 at yokohama injapan. the government halts fracking for gas in england until there is evidence the controversial process is safe. nicola sturgeon accuses boris johnson and jeremy corbyn of running scared of a tv debate with her, and says scottish independence is within touching distance. scotland's first minister nicola sturgeon has said the general election is a "crossroads moment" for scotland. addressing a rally in glasgow, ms sturgeon said independence was "within touching distance". she repeated her plan to hold a referendum next year — and urged scots to use the election to put "scotland's future in scotland's hands".
well, a little earlier i spoke to our correspondent alexandra mackenzie in glasgowjust as the snp rally was breaking up. the square has started to empty, but that's only happened within the last 10—15 minutes. before that, we understand that there were thousands of people here in the square. 0rganisers have said 20,000, we understand the police are saying 10,000. and it was a pro—independence rally. their message was that they wanted an independence referendum. they want scotland to have a choice about its future. and the main speaker this afternoon, as you said, was the first minister of scotland and leader of the snp, nichola sturgeon. and she had a very clear message — she wants an independent referendum in scotland next year in 2020. this is what she had to say. the much better alternative for our
country is to take our future into our hands and to become an independent country. a country that invests in our people, that invests in our public services, that invests in lifting children out of poverty — not in a hard brexit, not in trident weapons of mass destruction on the river clyde. an independent country that is open, that is welcoming, that is diverse, that can build a better future — not just for us here today and this generation of scots, but a better future for all the generations who come after us. that, my friends, is the prize. and that prize is within touching distance. but we must... we must seize that prize.
i said a moment ago that this general election is the most important in our lifetimes. and that is the case. so, a very strong message therefrom nicola sturgeon that was met very well by the audience here. she also accused borisjohnson and jeremy corbyn of running scared, and said she wanted to debate with them any time, anywhere. but borisjohnson has said that he definitely does not want scottish independence referendum, and jeremy corbyn has said that is not necessary or desirable. alexandra, is there any indication from the various ways public opinion has been measured over the last few years, that it has shifted towards independence? or is it pretty much where it was at the last referendum? it's difficult to tell from being here today. 0bviously everyone who was in
the square today might not have been from the snp, but they were definitely pro—independence. but we also saw a smaller rally, smaller demonstration taking place just outside the square of unionists. and they want to put across the message that nicola sturgeon does not speak for the whole of scotland, that there are definitely people in scotland who do not want independence, and theyjust want the snp and scottish government to move on from that argument and start talking about the nhs and start talking about education. but also, we might have a better indication after the election. nicola sturgeon has said this is the most important election of our generation. other party leaders have been out on the campaign trail as well, labour's leaderjeremy corbyn has been highlighting the issue of climate change — during a speech in swindon earlier
he said there was no greater issue facing the world today. his party is promising to make all new—build homes "zero carbon" within three years, in an effort to curb housing shortages and tackle climate change. mr corbyn also dismissed the government's call to halt fracking as an "election stunt". i think it sounds like fracking could come back on 13 december, if they were elected back in office. we are quite clear — we will end fracking. we think it's unnecessary, we think it is polluted if of ground water systems, and also all the evidence from preston new road in lancashire is that it's actually dangerous and has caused serious earth tremors. and that's why cuadrilla have had to halt their fracking many times, even though they kept claiming they were about to go into full production. so you think this is essentially a little stunt? it seems to me like an election stunt. i thinks it's what's called, euphemistically, a bit of green wash. that was jeremy corbyn talking to
our correspondent in swindon a little earlier. the liberal democrat leader jo swinson hasjoined sam gyimah as he launched his campaign to take london's kensington seat from labour. mr gyimah, who is a former conservative minister, reneged his membership while criticising the tories for becoming a "hard brexit party". 0ur really simple guide to the election explains the nuts and bolts and allows you to tap or click on key election terms to learn more. it's quite simple to get a hold of as well, just check it out at bbc.co.uk/news, or on the bbc news app. ferry services out of the port of dover have been suspended — due to strong winds which are causing travel delays and power cuts across large parts of southern england and south wales. 0ur correspondentjon donnison has been following this for us and i started by asking him about the impact of those ferry suspensions.
it's pretty bad, they have been suspended since just after lunch, for example, piano varies, they keep updating people via twitter every hour, and they keep saying the harbour is still closed. so we have got piano varies, ds fairies, and it's notjust berries going out, that means of course people may be queuing to get into the ports, and long delays there, you've got to feel a bit sorry for the people waiting to get in, stuck at sea, rough seas, pretty grim. and nowhere else for them to go until the dock is given the all. clear and every time we have the situations, and it does happen usually every winter, you have to think about the amount of food on these ships, the amount of food on these ships, the amount of food on these ships, the amount of water and whatnot, and obviously, pretty rough seas, a lot of people feeling pretty sick. what are the disruptions that the weather causes? well, it's been pretty blustery out there all day, we have had winds of 109 mph, recorded on the isle of wight. a severe weather warning, yellow weather warning from the met office, all the way along
that south coast from portsmouth all the way up to great yarmouth in norfolk. a lot of problems on the trains as well. 0bviously, debris on the line, branches, trees down, that sort of thing. quite a lot of networks, southern, southwestern, southeastern, that with the express, pretty bad on the roads as well. john donis is in there, talking to mea john donis is in there, talking to me a little earlier. now if you have a look over my shoulder at that image, you can see a look over my shoulder at that image, you can see a dramatic scene from the first western ever made. it's going to be shown for the first time in more than a century. the screening will take place where it was filmed — not in hollywood — but in lancashire. here's colin paterson. kidnapping by indians from 1899, the world's first western, according to the british film institute, and it was filmed in blackburn. from northgate, in the centre of blackburn on the site that they worked from, the year that they made the first western kidnapped by indians.
mitchell and kenyon's documentaries captured everyday life, including in their hometown, but they also liked to experiment. in 1899, that changes. they stop filming the world around them and start telling stories and one of the first is the first western. jamie holman tracked down a surviving copy in the archives of london's cinema museum. today, it will be shown for the first time in a century at the british textile biennial in the town. a very simple story, a frontier family encounters native americans, who try to take the child, and they are saved by the plucky cowboy, so it has got tomhawks, feathers, smoking pistols, it is a cowboy film. it is often claimed that the great train robbery made in the us in 1903 was the first western. but kidnapping by indians was shot four years earlier, and there are good reasons why the wild west was known in the north—west. there is this connection between the cotton growing obviously in america and the east lancashire weavers. why wouldn't there be some kind
of link that allowed them to know about that world and kind of be able to turn it into the world's first western? if you asked anyone in the street where was the first western made, no—one would say blackburn. no, nobody would say blackburn. it is an example of creativity and culture that comes from the working classes that has been ignored and screened here in blackburn and t's about the people of blackburn get to see that and it is their culture. the western is once again home on the range and that home is blackburn. let's get more on the rugby world cup final now. 0ur correspondent chi chi izundu has spent the day at harpenden rugby club, watching the game with england fans. she's just filed this report. the rugby club, once upon a time base to train some of those playing in today's match. the clubhouse
feeling every twist and turn of the match, but a muted round of applause at the results. four out of the 30 when england players have honed their skills here at this rugby club, including captain 0wen farrell, buck, the fans here have packedit farrell, buck, the fans here have packed it out, hoping that today's match would end and celebration. it hasn't. nonetheless, they have nothing but pride for england's efforts. i thought we played really well, they were a really hard team. yeah, we were really disappointed all around. we lost some of the big moments. they overpowered us a bit. they let us play our game, it was a fantastic turnout for the club. we had big expectations, and itjust didn't work our way today, unfortunately. george has been part of this club for 3h years, born in south africa, he says that the win will impact communities there. south africa, he says that the win will impact communities therem will impact communities therem will do wonders over in south africa. actually, even pre—match, if you saw all the dancing and the
shopping malls all of the fun that they have had over there, well, you've got to give it to them. they've got the enthusiasm, and they have got the nation behind them, and they won. and even with a loss, these young men who went to school with some of the england players say all... pride is all they are feeling now. we are mostly proud. this is such a big rugby school, so every pa rt of such a big rugby school, so every part of the school is all about by, part of the school is all about rugby, really. the kids around here, they really see, you know, the players, they see those players and they think, you know, what can i be in ten years time? regardless, celebrations for the players from this club. made all the sweeter by the fact that they were safe indoors, because outside, it's not been very pleasant. but hopefully, sarah keith lucas has some good news for us. hello. it's certainly been a day of mixed
fortunes out there today. for many of us, the wet and windy weather has been continuing through the day, very strong gusts of wind, especially in the south. and we're going to continue to see potential travel disruption through into this evening, with that mix of gales and heavy rain, especially for parts of southern england, but also for northern scotland too. gusts here about 50—60 mph, 40—50 mph later this afternoon along the south coast too. the winds will gradually be easing later on this evening, so it will be an improving story, but still some heavy downpours for many areas. the heaviest of the showers and the strongest of the winds both will ease through the course of tonight. could be some misty patches around tomorrow morning, especially for northern ireland towards north wales into the midlands as well. but certainly frost free 6—8d first thing in the morning. now, tomorrow will be a much less windy day than it has been today, still some blustery showers for northern and eastern scotland, eastern england, down towards the southwest too. some sunnier, drier weather in between though, and top temperatures around 10—14d. bye for now.
hello, this is bbc news with shaun ley. the headlines. south africa are victorious in the rugby world cup final, beating england 32—12 at yokohama in japan. it's jubilation in cape town, but disappointment for england fans, with the team unable to find the form that saw them through to the final. south africa deserved it. it was a disappointing game to watch, because there was simply not enough rugby being played. hey, it'sjust a game of rugby, mate, it's all good. the government halts fracking for gas in england until there is evidence the controversial process is safe. nicola sturgeon accuses boris johnson and jeremy corbyn of running scared of a tv debate with her and says scottish independence is within touching distance. vote to escape misery the chaos
and the misery and the division of brexit, and vote to put scotland's future into scotland's hands. that is the message that must ring out. labour unveils a plan to make all new—build homes "zero carbon" within three years if it wins the general election. police say a woman has died after a tree fell onto a car in dorset, as high winds cause major travel disruption across south england and wales. sport and for a full round up, from the bbc sport centre, there's more than just bug there's more thanjust bug me there's more than just bug me to talk about. here's 0lly foster. eddiejones was at an —— a loss to explain why his players came up so short against south africa. the springboks powered their way to the
world title 32—12, the final score. dan roan was there. it said he would wish this tournament ever and. but as they left for their date with destiny, they knew the rest —— the next few hours would rewrite their lives. for those who simply had to see it for themselves, it was a moment to cherish. the prospect of glory no less tantalising, however, for their opponents. this would be a repeat of the final 12 years ago. the last time england had played on such a stage. now they had to go to a place only one english team had been to before. his final would last as two minutes, the prop out cold after colliding with his team—mate.
england robbed of one of their most important players. pollard then hurting them on the scoreboard. the favourite seemed rattled after the magnitude of the occasion getting to them. england's only points coming from the boot of 0wen farrell. england were penalised time after time again. no team had trailed in the final so far and come back to win. could they define history? he scored his country's first ever try ata scored his country's first ever try at a final. south africa had been labelled boring in the build up. so much for that. colby celebrating his... heartbreak for england, much for that. colby celebrating his... heartbreakfor england, this their third defeat in the final. theirform their third defeat in the final. their form deserting them when it mattered most succulent i'm proud of what we've done. the fight that we
had in the second half, but credit to south africa, they were very good today. we come from different backgrounds, different races, and we came together with one goal and wanted to achieve it. i really hope we've done that. 24 years ago, south africa's first world cup victory on home soil had given rugby one of its most iconic images. now he's provided another. this is a seminal moment for his sport and his country. south africa united as world champions once again. the only thing we are worried about now is having a few beers. that's the only thing we're worried about. after we have a few beers today, we'll have a few more tomorrow. then probably monday, then maybe we have to pull up monday, then maybe we have to pull up stumps. england's players have taken to social media in the last few hours since their defeat. lock maro itoje quoting a proverb... "when a ram goes backwards it is not retreating, it moves back to gather
more strength". that's pretty deep. prop kyle sinckler who was taken off with concussion in the third minute said words can't express how he's feeling to have the biggest moment of his life taken away from him. and tom curry thanked his family and friends who'd travelled to japan to support him, he also thanked all the fans who'd watched at home. his brother ben was given leave so he could be out there in the stands. it's been a really dramatic afternoon in the premier league, leaders liverpool were heading for their first defeat of the season at aston villa. they were 1—0 down with just a couple of minutes to play at villa park, but andy robertson equalised in the 87th minute before sadio mane headed a brilliant winner from a corner deep into injury time. that keeps them six points clear of manchester ity. we started off well football boys,
but i didn't like it still 100%. it's playful with words, we played a bit too much here and there, there wasn't really the right moment to finish it off. we didn't shoot it off from 18—20 yards. he still tried to pass the ball. we had our moments, but we are not really clearly getting enough. manchester city also came from behind, they were losing 1—nil at halftime to southampton but kyle walker was their match winner in the 86th minute. sergio aguero had scored the equaliser, 2—1 to city. for a couple of minutes they thought they had narrowed the gap on liverpool, until the new filtered through from villa park of the turn—around there as well. as you are, a six point difference. in the day's lunchtime kick—off manchester united's recent upturn in form came to an end on the south coast. bournemouth beat them 1—0 at the vitality stadium. rhia chohan reports.
manchester united have faced troubled waters this season. but a fourth consecutive win would be a sign that perhaps this ship is studying. 0pportunities came early on for them against bournemouth. 0nes on for them against bournemouth. ones that with they wood room missing. like the weather, the game got scrappy at times, anthony tumbling under eight challenged by jefferson. a penalty appeal was lost. 0therwise, jefferson. a penalty appeal was lost. otherwise, it was a relatively quiet afternoon for the likes of him and marcus rashford. the wind conditions played havoc with ball control, but it did find its way into the sales of former manchester united trainee josh king. into the sales of former manchester united traineejosh king. the strike set the tone for the rest of the match. they needed to up the tempo and the power, but there just wasn't enough of it. bournemouth‘s first win in six games and sent them back above united in the table, theyjust didn't live up to a recent form.
you are always very down when you lose a game. in the form we were in, we we re lose a game. in the form we were in, we were hoping to take three points here. wejust we were hoping to take three points here. we just couldn't capitalise on a good start. i thought we opened them up and got down the right—hand side, wejust them up and got down the right—hand side, we just couldn't get the goal. game evened out, and that won the game for them. very good performance today, much better. much more like ourselves with the ball, and still dogged and determined off the ball. so a very good mix for us today. some very good mix for us today. some very good individual performances, which are needed to win these games. very satisfied. and the attacking player was back today. we were cute with our movements and patterns, and i thought we fully deserved to win. four other results on a fascinating day in the premier league, some big wins for sides who have been struggling. newcastle 3—2 away at west ham, brighton beat norwich 2—0, and sheffield united are up to ninth after beating burnley 3—0. arsenal meanwhile threw away the lead again, they drew 1—1 at home with wolves.

closeness wouldn't last much beyond have time, eventually torn apart by the all blacks. sheer brute force would extend the lead. corey haro we are neera taking british tacklers with him over the line. darrell clark's try reduced the difference and set the game up for a dramatic climax. with moments remain, jermaine mcgilvery could've leveled the scores, but the ball, like the match, slipped through english fingers. we just ran out time. another five minutes, we fingers. we just ran out time. anotherfive minutes, we would've got that try. but i'm just pleased with their effort and the way we stuck to a plan that we went into the game with. the second half we made some things happen. we just got beat. two defeats from two now, the by beat. two defeats from two now, the rugby league lions are back, but not the return they waited for her. adam wilde, bbc news. leicester tigers have their first win of the premiership season,

of the global herbal tea market. now, some of that money will go to the people who discovered it. this area, around three hours north of cape town, is the only area where the plant is grown. the khoisan people were using it for centuries, before it was commercialised under colonial rule. but an agreement between the khoisan people and the council means they will now get 1.5% of the price. this has huge ramifications for the indigenous world, and many where people can be brought under one agreement, so it is a world first and it is important for that region. the deal should bring the khoisan around $160,000 a year, but it is not all about the money. this was very much a dignity issue, and that the khoisan are going to be using the plant.
the first knowledge was very important, and right that is really what they struggled with. the income will have new generations of the indigenous people who still live in the rural areas where their ancestors first discovered the sweet taste of this little red rooibos bush. rich preston, bbc news. inafew in a few moments, we willjoin at bbc one for all that national and international news. disney is joining the world of tv streaming to challenge the likes of netflix. in his only uk interview, disney's boss bob iger has been speaking to the bbc‘s media editor, amol rajan. earlier this year, the avengers: endgame from marvel entertainment became the biggest—grossing movie in history. 0k. who here hasn't been to space? marvel is part of a bigger media giant, the walt disney
company, known as disney. over the past 15 years, it has been on an acquisition spree under the leadership of bob iger. mr iger, who considered a run for the us presidency, bought pixar animation off stevejobs, lucasfilm off star wars creator george lucas and, last year, in one of the biggest deals in media history, 21st century fox from rupert murdoch. why do you think rupert murdoch wanted to sell? well, i think the primary reason is that he looked at what was going on in the world of media, and all the disruption, and he didn't believe that the hand that they had was a strong as it needed to be. it's that simple, and he didn't have a solution. but what are the underlying trends reshaping the media industry which makes those sort of mega—acquisitions necessary? well, i think if you look at today's media landscape, whether you are in the uk or the united states, or in many other places in the world, first of all, it starts with content. content is king. quality stands really tall in a sea of choice.
and then secondly, get content that is so valuable, so important, so loved by consumers, that they'll access it or buy it almost any way they possibly can. it was rival netflix that pioneered streaming, which allows you to watch what you want, when you want. in the time that i've been on the throne, what have i actually achieved? # for the times, they are a—changin'...# apple tv+ launched in london yesterday, with hollywood starsjennifer aniston and reese witherspoon promoting its biggest production. this winter, several technology giants are launching their own streaming services. disney's own service, disney+, launches here next spring. i think netflix is a volume play with a lot of quality in it, and they created the market in the direct—to—consumer space with video. and we come in with a different play. it's much more branded, less volume, and there's plenty of room for us to occupy space
good evening. south africa have ended england's dream of lifting the rugby world cup — with an overwhelming victory at the final injapan. the springboks delivered a brilliant and relentless attacking game — winning 32—12. for england there's bitter disappointment. for south africans it's a triumphant moment — for a sport that's come to represent huge change in their nation. our sports editor dan roan
reports from japan. south african rugby has produced iconic rugby moments in the past, and now another that may surpass anything that has gone before. kolisi, the team's first black captain, and the face of a victory that will resonate far beyond this sport. the final had been a repeat of the one played 12 years ago, the last time either side had been on such a stage. england were favourites to become world champions for just the second time in their history. but it was clear that their rivals wanted this just as much, the sense that they were playing for something far greater than just themselves. kyle sinckler‘s emerged as one of the tournament's stars, but his final would last just two minutes — the prop out cold after colliding with his team—mate. england robbed of one of their most important players. handre pollard then hurting them on the scoreboard.
after arriving at the stadium late after delays, england seemed rattled, had the magnitude of the occasion got to them? commentator: we've played ten minutes. england's world cup final hasn't started yet. england's only points in a tight first half coming from the boot of 0wen farrell. they'd reached the final by taking their game to a new level, but not here, not now. england outmuscled by south africa who then capitalised on english ill discipline. england were in trouble, penalised time and time again as the giant south african pack began to dismantle their scrum. no team had trailed at half—time in a final and come back to win — could england defy history? not like this. makazole mapimpi starting and finishing a rapid attack to score his country's first—ever try in a final. for the millions of england supporters watching around the world, the feeling that it was slipping away... south africa had been labelled "boring" in the build—up. so much for that...
cheslin kolbe celebrating his return to the side with a devastating dance to the try line. the world cup was theirs for the third time. 24 years ago, south africa's first world cup victory on home soil had given rugby one of its most iconic images. now, a leader and team far more representative of their country had provided another. we come from different backgrounds, different races and we came together with one goal and we wanted to achieve it. i really hope that we have done that for south africa. left to ponder what might have been, england had been outfought and out thought, this their third defeat in a final, in the biggest game of their lives their form had deserted them. i can't fault the preparation of the players, they have worked hard the entire world cup and they played with a lot of pride and passion, but we just weren't good enough today, congratulations to south africa on an outstanding performance. south africa's fans, meanwhile, able to celebrate a historic victory. to see kolisi lead the team
was phenomenal, it says a lot about how far the country has come in 25 short years. it's more than a rugby world cup victory, it's about uniting the country. today we were the best team and we won the world cup rugby, yeah, baby! the first to be staged in asia, this tournament has been hailed a great success, these young japanese fans almost as excited as their new south african friends. amazing team! that is why we love it. but the real triumph belongs to one team, this is a seminal moment for sport and for south africa, united as world champions once again. the chance of sporting immortality might have passed them by but a young england team can still be proud of what they achieved here at a tournament that exceeded expectations.
the final will always be remembered for the power but only of south africa's play but also the image of their captain, a man born in a township, lifting the trophy. rarely has a sporting victory felt quite so momentous. dan roan, bbc news, yokohama. the springboks triumph was met with huge celebrations back in south africa. when the country won the rugby world cup for the first time in 1995 — they only had one black player in the team. today — all the rainbow nation are sharing in the victory — as andrew harding reports from johannesburg. it is always good to win. back home in south africa today ecstatic celebrations nationwide. but there's more to this rapture than just by, more to this rapture than just rugby, the sport was once monopolised by the white minority here, but not any more. congratulations to the springboks and thank you for bringing it back home. hard luck, england. we are over the moon, what a game, this is the biggest world cup in the world.
and this is the sport that unites us as south africans. and then a message home from a victorious team. this is what we can do as a team when we decide on one goal, so thank you very much. cheering here in south africa, kolisi has become an iconic figure, the springboks first black captain, a symbol of hope and progress. for yea rs symbol of hope and progress. for years the news from south africa has been relentlessly bad, corruption, inequality, a country losing its way, does today change it? of course not, but the victory is a reminder of the bigger picture of how much has changed here since the days of racial apartheid. this is after all a vibrant young democracy, with a world beating rugby team. andrew harding, bbc news, johannesburg. the government has suspended fracking in england
for the forseeable future. the ban comes after a technical report said it was not possible to predict the probability or seriousness of earth tremors caused by extracting shale gas from the ground. labour, the liberal democrats and the green party have all called for a permanent ban. our business correspondent katie prescott reports. it's farewell to fracking, for now. these campaigners in lancashire couldn't be happier to see the back of it. we're delighted about it, it's what we've been hoping for all the time. we don't trust them, of course. they could change their mind yet. it's good news, obviously. it's good news for the whole country, but in particular here, where people have put up with this for the best part of three years now. all this stuff going on for no apparent gain. so, three years, all that money pumped in, all that effort, and they've produced next to nothing. the process of extracting shale gas is one of the most controversial of our time. using pressurised water and chemicals to break up rock causes minor earthquakes. today, the oil and gas regulator
says the impact on these communities is unacceptable, which means companies must stop the operations. in the past borisjohnson has called fracking glorious news for humanity. but the government says it has changed its mind. there is no doubt that extracting more natural gas in the united kingdom would be very attractive but we've always been clear, we can only do that if it can be done safely. we will follow the science, so in future, should the ability to be certain about seismic events and so on, we will look at it again. the government had hoped sites like these would transform our energy policy. creating home—grown sources of power that would reduce our gas imports. fracking's industry body says...
but the green party says fracking is a fantasy and want to see a permanent ban. labour say they fear the government's stance could be an election ploy. i think it sounds like fracking would come back on the 13th of december if they were elected back into office. we are quite clear, we will end fracking. the big question now is whether the industry will be willing to invest any more money here, in the hope that the science will one day find in their favour in the regulation could change. katie prescott, bbc news. a women has died after her car was hit by a falling tree in dorset. strong winds and rain have also suspended passengerferries in and out of dover. gusts of more than 80 miles per hour brought down power lines and caused transport disruption across large parts of southern england. met office rain warnings remain in place for wales and north eastern scotland. there's more throughout the evening
