former us national security advisor john bolton has accused the white house of denying him access to his personal twitter account since he resigned in september. in his first tweet since then he thanked twitter for returning control and told followers to stay tuned for "a backstory". with less than 3 weeks to go to the british general election, the leaders of the four biggest parties at westminster, have been given a grilling by members of the public on the bbc. there were uncomfortable moments for them all as they made their pitches. the people of bougainville are voting on whether to seek independence from papua new guinea and become the world's newest country. the referendum in the island group was part of a peace deal agreed almost twenty years ago which ended a decade of civil war.
plaid cymru is promising a £20 billion investment in what it calls a ‘green jobs revolution‘ for wales. launching its election manifesto, the party's leader, adam price, said there would also be major investment in rail and bus services, a new offshore wind farm, and three tidal lagoons to generate electricity. he also talked about his ambition for an independent wales. here's hywel griffith. once, these valleys powered britain's industrial revolution. now, the rhondda's coal mines have become museums. post—industrial wales is a place struggling with its political identity, where some sense an opportunity. plaid cymru sees this brexit election as a chance to sell its vision. although most people here voted to leave the eu, it wants wales to remain, as an independent nation. we want to be at the heart of europe, on our own terms, in our own right, standing proud.
the party's manifesto calls for another referendum on eu membership. it also pledges thousands ofjobs from green energy projects like tidal lagoons and wind farms. and it offers an extra £35 a week for every child in a low—income family. as it sets out ideas for the future, plaid has been drawing on the past and talking about wales as a country, once rich in natural resources like coal, which has been stripped of its assets and left in poverty. it has demanded reparation payments to be made after decades of what the leader calls "british rule". adam price wants £20 billion to reboot a nation. who should pay this money? what we're saying is the uk government should actually increase its level of infrastructure investment. as a debt owed to wales? as reparation payments? look, as an investment in our own future. exactly what the welsh contribution... some of these first—time voters say
they are curious about independence. but are they persuaded to back plaid? in theory, i am indy—curious, because i do like the idea, but i really don't see myself voting in that direction. i don't think people know the ins and outs of how, like, a trade deal would be formed, how we would get money into the country, what we would export, and i feel like because of that, it's a big stumbling block for people. remaining in europe, breaking out of the uk, plaid hopes its manifesto can bring more voters on board. hywel griffith, bbc news, pontypridd. now on bbc news, the travel show. hello the travel show. and welcome to the travel show, hello and welcome to the travel show, with me lucy hedges, coming to you this week from rwanda. i am in the capital kigali, to meet the people determine to make the country one of east africa's cultural hotspots. how do i look? good? cat
is in copenhagen, skiing on the roof ofa is in copenhagen, skiing on the roof of a power plant. ijust want is in copenhagen, skiing on the roof of a power plant. i just want to make it down without falling over! and simon calder is back with his tips on how to take a new train link to the world was much holder city. north—east siberia is now easier to reach. -- world's coldest city. we start this week in copenhagen. by
2025 the danish hope this will become the world's very first carbon neutral capital city. we sent to find out how they are getting on. denmark is a country that takes its eco— friendly reputation very seriously. it is claimed that more than two—thirds of their waste is recycled and 30% of all their energy consumption comes from renewable sources. they even say the harbour is clean enough for you to swim in. not something i will be trying on a cold winters day. instead i am on a go boat, one of the electric boats available to hire here in copenhagen. it is charged back at the dock with solar panels. that means no noisy engines, and low c02 emissions. this green drive has had
another added porsche, with the opening of a new tourist attraction. built on top of the unlikeliest of buildings, a power station. fuelled by waste and billed as one of the most environmentally friendly plans of its kind, opened last month, the copenhill spans more than 40,000 square metres. this slope i am on works its way from the bottom all the way up the side of the building, and it is open every day of the week for hikers, sightseers and even skiers. the ski slope is made from a slippery synthetic material which is coloured green to stop the slope from discolouring. they are still doing a bit of work up here, but look, right over there, that is sweden, which is very cool. and on the other side, we have this amazing
view of copenhagen. and how did you come up with putting a ski slope up here? one of the things we realised quite quickly is that if you take a section of the building it actually stepped down from low to high, from the area whether trucks drive into the area whether trucks drive into the boilers, the flue gas treatment areas, up the boilers, the flue gas treatment areas, up to about 90 metres. the other thing about denmark is that daines other thing about denmark is that da i nes love other thing about denmark is that daines love to ski but denmark is com pletely daines love to ski but denmark is completely flat. so they will drive for three hours to sweden to ski on a slope that is about 80 metres higher. so we quickly realised that since we have mountains of trash apparently, we could turn it into mountains of recreation and skiing that could become a public amenity in the very centre of the city of copenhagen. sustainability tends to be this thing that is seen as protesta nt be this thing that is seen as protestant act, something you do which means that you have to do less of something, that you somehow have
to have less life experience. but what we really wanted to do with this project is expressed that somehow sustainability can be something that is positive and fun and actually gives more back to people, and to the city. inside, a glass left shows people the inner workings of the powerstation. —— left. and tours are available as an after skiing activity. there seems to bea after skiing activity. there seems to be a mix of leftover tree branches, but also general waste as well. that's correct. we see waste both from households and industries, all the waste that cannot be recycled. how often do these trucks come, there seems to be a steady flow, even just standing come, there seems to be a steady flow, evenjust standing here come, there seems to be a steady flow, even just standing here for the past few minutes. we have around 300 lorries coming in on a daily basis. inside the waste silo, giant
grabbers mix the rubbish before dropping it into the furnace. this is where the waste is being incinerated, i will show you over here, it is quite a sight. oh, my eyes! it is like staring into the pit of hell. the plan generates electricity, and potentially enough annual heating for 150,000 homes. we have waste in copenhagen, we will keep on producing waste in copenhagen and the rest of the world, so this is a product that is already here so we might as well use it or something reasonable, something that makes sense. back on the slope, it's time for me to get my skis on. can i borrow your foot
for one moment? just one is fine, thank you. i have not been a dry ski slope for maybe 15 years. you will have fun. i have been on actual snow. it is quite different. speed is your friend up there. speed is my friend... yeah. i don't really know how this is going to go, if i am going to wipe out. (laughs). ijust wa nt to going to wipe out. (laughs). ijust want to make it down without falling over! screaming. after that initial wobble i was soon feeling confident. maybe a bit too confident. (laughs). that went really well! and the
copenhill is open now to skiers of all abilities. and if you are thinking of travelling to denmark, here are some things we think you should look out for. if you are staying in copenhagen, you could cycle to make -- tivoli copenhagen, you could cycle to make —— tivoli gardens, one of the world's coldest and prettiest amusement parks, plus it is right in the city. fairytale writer hans christian anderson is said to have visited many times, and it is rumoured while disney found their inspiration for his disney world here. if you are feeling brave, you could take icy tip of the northern tip of denmark. it is the skagen winter swimming festival, anyone who ta kes winter swimming festival, anyone who takes part wins the title of icebreaker. 0rganisers promise it will be an atmospheric and
invigorating event. author something very different, horsens jail in the jutland region is hosting a tattoo festival in may. 0rganisers are expecting around 5000 people to attend over the three day event. malaysians themselves admit that nothing unites their multicultural nation better than their food. nothing unites their multicultural nation better than theirfood. so nothing unites their multicultural nation better than their food. so we are sarawak to see what goes into their unofficial official match — a national dish. people know me as the laughing boss. i am the baker here in sarawak. today i am going to teach you how to cook basic nasi lemak with a few twists. nasi lemak
is steamed rice interviews with coconut milk, and the most important pa rt coconut milk, and the most important part is the spicy macro one, the spicy signature red sauce —— spicy sambal, the signature red sauce. you have the right and water, and this is the most important thing, the coconut milk. nasi lemak without the coconut milk. nasi lemak without the coconut milk nasi lemak without i , you would not have the lemak. and then the tendon leaf, for the fragrance. when it is ready, the fragrance. when it is ready, the fragrance will tell you. now we move over to the sambal. and the onion. everyone can have nasi lemak. it is a typical malaysian recipe. you have
to make it simple, make it nice. and if you have it in a hotel, they call its deemed hot rice seasoned with coconut milk, seasoned with signature spicy red sauce. this one. . . signature spicy red sauce. this one... (laughs). perfect. this is golden brown, wejust add in this, this is the chilli paste. and then the sour papaya. you can smell it from 1000 miles away. that is exactly how you cook a traditional basic sambal. 0k, there we go. the
cucumber slice, the deep—fried anchovy is, and there we have it! the perfect nasi lemak! nasi lemak can go with anything, from fried chicken to peking duck. 0r can go with anything, from fried chicken to peking duck. or you can go basic. there you go. spicy, coconut milk, awesome! stick around, because still to come on the travel show, our global guru, simon calder, explores how to reach the world's coldest city by train. and i am in kigali, seeing how the city is transforming into a cultural hotspot. i think i made it through
about half of that choreography! these kids are so good! hello again. today i'm focusing on a subject that more of you want to know about than any other, budget travel in europe. iaim to any other, budget travel in europe. i aim to help with seeing dubrovnik ona i aim to help with seeing dubrovnik on a shoestring, recommending the best greek island for a cut—price may escape, and the tricky business of international rail travel. first, though, as winter gets a grip on the northern hemisphere, the world's cold est northern hemisphere, the world's coldest city, yakutsk in north—east siberia, is now easier to reach. a new railway line connects the city to the rest of the russian rail network, almost. the wide lena river
stops the line just short of the city, but in winter when the river is frozen, vehicles take passengers a short distance from the end of the line to yakutsk, and in summer there are ferries. back here in europe, bethany hughes wants to know: dubrovnik and budget used to go well together in the same sentence. but croatia's most beautiful city is now very firmly on the tourist trail. as a result, prices for everything from coffee to souvenirs have soared, and finding bargains is challenging. for eating, drinking, chilling and quite possibly sleeping, i urge you to consider taftat, a 40 minute boat ride from dubrovnik. this spectacular town was once a roman
colony, great outpost, and is now a backwater without the crowds at high prices of dubrovnik. edward geary has a romantic plan for 2020: hello, edward, and thank you for your question. to help you out with this, i saw somebody with specialist knowledge. one of the most romantic greek islands is the island of milos. it is only 40 minutes from athens by ferry. it has some of the best beaches in greece and great cuisine. for your stay, i best beaches in greece and great cuisine. foryourstay, iwould suggest either the town of adamas or pollonia. many viewers have got in touch to say they want to switch from airto touch to say they want to switch from air to rail. but some, like ben vos, say they are finding it difficult to source international train tickets.
i have many years experience of organising rail travel in europe, and regretfully, i still haven't found an agent who can successfully connect any two points on the continent. however, i hope i can help you reach the swedish capital. because you know exactly where you wa nt to because you know exactly where you want to be, when, i don't recommend interrail. instead, isuggest want to be, when, i don't recommend interrail. instead, i suggest you use sncf, french railways or its partner talus to get to brussels. from there, german railways can get you to copenhagen in several hops, but on a single ticket. and swedish railways will go from the danish capital to stockholm in under six hours. the earlier you book and the more flexible you can be comedy
lower the cost. whatever you are heading, iam lower the cost. whatever you are heading, i am here to help. just sendin heading, i am here to help. just send in your questions. i'll do my very best to find you an answer. from me, simon calder, the global guru, could for now, and see you next time. —— goodbye for now. reminder hasjust topped reminder has just topped the 2020 africa destination list, and i am here in the capital, kigali. —— rwanda. the city is a hub for start—ups, it has a buzzing art scene, and great local entertainment. but while most travellers whizz through here to get straight to the rwandan wildlife, i have come to see what the capital has to offer. welcome to rwanda! the city is impressively spotless, there is wi—fi everywhere, and perhaps most importantly, there is a real sense of pride bursting from every single person i talked to. this is
thanks in no small part to the national made in rwanda initiative, a movement to support and inspire local businesses, and the made in rwanda label is now a badge of honour. this all reflects the new rwandan identity, no longer divided along ethnic or tribal lines. i am at the house of teo, where designer matthew mccumber set up shop years ago. he has seen his brand grow in popularity since the launch of the made in rwanda label. he has even seen made in rwanda label. he has even seen his clothes strutted on the red carpet for the launch of the blockbuster black panther. carpet for the launch of the blockbuster black pa ntherlj carpet for the launch of the blockbuster black panther. i want to utilise as much local talent and expertise as i can. it is very important that we build a local ecosystem of models, photographers,
lighting experts, only when we do that can we say that we have a local fashion industry. i am dying to find out about the wakanda premier suit he made for the protagonist's brother. the suit was made remotely, and he worked on photographs, working right down to the wire. we got in about three or four hours before the actual premier. cutting it fine! yes. bloodshot eyes, because you haven't slept. exactly, even when he got the suit i wasn't sure it would fit. it was an absolute miracle that it fit. it was really exciting. it was an important time for rwandan fashion. tayo and other designers are notjust arriving here in rwanda, but are now selling their goods abroad. fashion is not the only thing that is growing here thanks to the made in rwanda slogan. music and dance has a lwa ys rwanda slogan. music and dance has always been away for people to express themselves, and now, with the national revival, you go far here without hearing a drumbeat.
inema is one of africa's largest data centres, with a range of rwandan cultural experiences. how do i look? good? rwandan cultural experiences. how do ilook? good? i rwandan cultural experiences. how do i look? good? i have noticed this real sense of pride in being rwandan. why is this done so symbolic of rwandan culture? rwandan. why is this done so symbolic of rwandan culture ?m rwandan. why is this done so symbolic of rwandan culture? it is essential for the kids to have some sort of identity, and understanding of dance, their culture, it is very good as you move forward. well, i guess you can tell what is going to happen next. here we go! i think i made it through about half of that choreography. these kids are so
good! i've had so much fun today getting stuck into rwandan culture. now i'm ordering a cocktail and i am about to kick back and enjoy concert, rwanda style. i am here to see dayo perform, one of kigali's rising music sensations. the inanga is a traditional vocal music. it is a history, it is our identity. many yea rs history, it is our identity. many years ago it was getting disappeared. so i decided to introduce my music to the new world. such a beautiful sound. the lyrics of your music, what do they mean, what are you saying in your songs?|j wa nt what are you saying in your songs?” want everyone to know our culture,
how we are doing, i history. and listening to a story, where we come from, how we are going on. it gives the inspiration to other missions, soi the inspiration to other missions, so i want to tell the people about our country. this new generation of rwandans who have now moved on from the country's darker, violent past, are shedding light and colour across the country. and while most travellers are rushed through kigali, it is worth keeping some time aside to explore the people, their crafts in this bustling city. well, that is it for this week. join us well, that is it for this week. join us if you can, next week, when cat is back in iceland with a new kind of sanctuary for beluga whales is getting ready for its residents. of sanctuary for beluga whales is getting ready for its residentsm you insist, if you insist! there we go. there was another little burp.
hello! catch that, if you can. but in the meantime, don't forget, we are all over social media, so why not sign up to us there and join us out here on the road in real time, and also share your travel stories with the rest of the world. until then, from me and the rest of the team, it's goodbye. hello there. rain is the main concern over the next 24 hours. there are various met office warnings warning about that persistent rain, but there could be some travel disruption, even possible flooding. it's certainly been wet through the evening and night across the south—west and wales and across northern ireland.
that rain's been moving northwards, so the warnings come into force as well through the midlands and then northern england, eventually parts of scotland, too. so given that we've already had well in excess of what we'd normally see through the autumn rain—wise, there is a concern that there will be some further flooding because we could see another half a month's worth of rain in some parts of england, wales, and later up into scotland as well. it looks pretty wet for northern ireland as well. all this rain is meandering around an area of low pressure sat towards the south—west. so even once the main rain clears, there'll be showers around — some quite hefty ones. may dry up for a time, but we'll have a legacy of drizzly and rather cloudy weather, low clouds and some hill fog around as well. you can see the day looks quite wet through the midlands, northern england and through the afternoon as well. that rain's creeping up into eastern parts of scotland. so the north—west, after a chilly start, might see the best of the sunshine. the northern isles as well doing quite well in terms of dry and bright weather on saturday, but the rain then arrives through the evening and overnight across eastern and north—western parts of scotland. elsewhere, well, elsewhere we see a brief ridge of high pressure, so that's a window of drier weather
— 12 to 24 hours for most of us — before the next low pressure rolls in by the end of sunday and into monday. so sunday does look like the drier day of the weekend for most of us — not all of us, but most of us. however, there'll be a lot of grey weather, some morning fog. of course, after all that moisture around, that takes a long time to clear in november because we're lacking strength in the sun, and then it just lifts into low cloud. we've got a much wetter day for the northern isles and then, here comes the rain later on. the winds won't be as strong tomorrow as they will be today, so it'll feel cold today just because of the wind as well as all the cloud. but that's easing tomorrow. but still, it's only 9s to 11s, which is about average for the time of year. sunday night sees the arrival of the next band of rain — turns quite showery. but then tuesday's rain — or monday night and tuesday's rain — looks a little bit more persistent once again, so we're into this, again, unsettled picture. temperatures are up on those of last week. there's just a hint that later in the week, we might again get a respite from the rain
