all the hours that are going look more and more familiar. exeter on behind the scenes, chiefs, european champions league as to have nights like tonight, you feel like this is worth it we can, now premiership winners. and it's going to be good. a good show, that. after a season lasting more than 12 yeah. i will see you on saturday. months, exeter arrived at an eerie the reality of it is that i was speaking to you guys and empty twickenham, filled with confidence. and from the start that three or four weeks ago, and we didn't even have a team. was plain to see. henry slade idid. weaving his way through the wasps' it was brilliant. defence to put his side into an i really got hairs on the back early lead. a nightmare start for wasps you had 11 players ruled out of my neck sticking up when you hear because of a covid—19 outbreak. jake fans shouting that chant made sure they weren't there to make that we haven't heard for so long. what are the main up made sure they weren't there to make up the numbers as wasps drew level. emotions right now? tiredness. tired. as the conditions worsened and the we have done all this tension began to build, it was exeter that edged ahead through the in ourspare time. boot ofjoe simmons. a slender lead for the last ten months, that wasps couldn't quite reach. the news section of the bury fc website has been quiet. m ista kes that wasps couldn't quite reach. mistakes in the cost them as exeter no official statements had been released since october 2019. but that all changed kicked their way to a second premiership title, and became only a few weeks ago. the fourth team in english rugby now, steve dale has released history to do the double. austin halewood,
bbc news. i mentioned the six a number of statements. nations, we have had to wait eight months for this but it has returned that's fine because there is only one bury football club, as ireland thrashed italy 50 points but there is also bury afc. to 17th in dublin. —— 50—17. he can come out and put those statements out all he wants, that's fine. they scored seven tries in all. debutant hugo keenan here getting two of them as ireland sealed a bonus point win to go top of the table. another bonus point win in france next weekend in the championships final round of matches and the title will be theirs. well, france showed that won't be easy as they beat wales in a warm up we will all read it, we will all have a chuckle game in paris. at the things that are funny in it. he has been our best salesman antoine dupont scoring two tries as the french ran out winners by 38 points to 21. for our memberships, to be fair. it's the day that bury afc had been working towards for months. and in the women's six nations... it's a long road, isn't it? to get here. england could come out on top, but they now have well over 1,000 for now ireland a second on the members, sold over 1,000 shirts. what a goal! table. they had to come from behind to defeat italy, with claire
molloy‘s try helping them to victory, 21—17. they have won some friendlies. on to football, then. an absolute thunderbolt! they have lost some friendlies, liverpool over came more var controversy to beat but today is the big one. sheffield united at anfield. today is the first competitive game. it's the first competitive game. the visitors were awarded a penalty after this incident, my dad said it's the first time he's with fabinho adjudged to have ever got up and actually thought committed a foul inside the box, about football for a long time. covid restrictions mean that only apparently. sander burge duly 45 bury fans have got tickets for the cup game, away at west didsbury and chorlton. converted from the spot. it's bittersweet, it would have been nice to have all the fans here and everybody that wanted then roberto firmino equalised to participate and join in. just before half—time, and then digo jota you're on the healthy snack. completed the turnaround to send well, lunchtime, isn't it, the champions second. i haven't eaten for 48—hours. manchester city dropped more points and for somebody who is my size, as they drew 1—1 at west ham — michail antonio gave that's not very good. the hammers the lead with a brilliant overhead kick. i have been busy getting moaned at left, right and centre about different things. more stressed than i've ever been. the competition's won, but obviously the final's at wembley. phil foden equalised that's a long way away, for pep guardiola's side but this is city's worst start to but we've all got that in our heads. a season in six years. since we last met adam's sister and manchester united and chelsea in the stanley club, played out a goalless draw she has had a baby. at old trafford. we already have our bury afc shirt. it's back. it's different, but it's back. the football pyramid, man of the moment, marcus rashford, almost winning the game in injury the foundations of it, are in bits. time but he saw his effort saved. and nobody is talking about it, because everybody is talking about the fact that gareth bale
elsewhere, yesterday, is coming back to spurs and i'm like, bigger picture. crystal palace beat fulham. 0nto the spl, leaders rangers and champions celtic are both in action this afternoon in the scottish premiership. hibernian moved back into the third in the table yesterday with a 1—0 win at kilmarnock. starting to get people coming in. kevin nisbet scoring the only goal starting to fill up a little bit. of the game from the penalty spot — that's his eighth of the season. i got a buzz on me nowjust it was goalless at saintjohnstone. watching them warming up. and seeing people and seeing what is going on. i think once we kick off and you can get behind the team, and a huge date in cycling coming up that is when football is back for me. does it feel like your team yet? it does because it's representing the town and it's the people. —— huge day in cycling coming up. i have known chris for 15 or 16 years. britain could have only its second it's nice seeing people giro d'italia winner later today, you know taking it over. i've been going to bury with my dad with tao geoghegan hart perfectly placed to win his first grand tour. and obviously i became a father the 25—year—old londoner who rides injanuary when bury didn't exist for ineos grenadiers beat and i thought, that's jai hindley to win yesterday's stage the one thing i wanted, to take her, and become joint overall leader with the australian. so this is her first football game today's final stage is an individual as well, so hopefully in the future, time trail ofjust under ten we can go together. miles to milan. ahead of the match, bury afc have a message for fans. to the people of bury, nobody would have foreseen the circumstances in which we now take to the field. with limited crowds and the world turned upside down. thousands of hours have been put 0n the race's previous time trial,
geoghegan beat hindley by more into creating this club. it is by the fans and than a minute. lewis hamilton is poised to surpass it is for everyone. if hard work conquers all, the record for race victories he shares with michael schumacher at this afternoon's portuguese grand prix. then we are already winning. the world champion will start from pole for the 97th time in his career, looking for his 92nd win. you've urged us to bring his mercedes team—mate football back to bury. valtteri bottas lines up at 3pm on saturday, alongside him at portimao we will have done just that. on the algarve, while red bull's max this fact alone makes us all extremely proud. verstappen is third. it's a chance. groaning it hits the post. dan evans' run at the european 0pen cheering came to an end at the semi—finals stage. the british number one squandered four match points in the second set before going down in a decider oh, it's in! in a match that lasted what a goal! over three hours. we all put our clocks back last night, i hope you did stop their first real chance at the game, and it was almost a half chance. 45 minutes to go. see what happens. winners! you did stop back. come on, bury!
they were beaten 13—0 by ajax on saturday in what was the biggest margin of victory in the league's history. they scored nine of those chanting in the second half. as you can imagine, the players oh, it's cleared. were on hand to console the venlo keeper who probably wasn't if they can get a good feeling that great. in his defence, could have been worse. in his defence, i blame the whole of the defence. you can't blame the goalie. but a shocking scoreline, 13—0. counterattack. .. blame the goalie. but a shocking scoreline, 13-0. a bad day at the office, i would call that one. thank you. swearing now, more than 300,000 visitors there is an open goal to aim at. flock to cambridge's world—famous can he do it? botanical gardens each year, but the pandemic has led its conservationist curators down a more creative path. now for the first time in its history, its entire plant collection has been made available to view online, meaning researchers, horticulturalists and the public can all now access information about their rare species from home. here's our science correspondent richard westcott. he's got the pace for it. oh, this is brilliant. yes! more than 8000 species, collected
over 250 yea rs, more than 8000 species, collected over 250 years, from all over the world. with a surprise around every corner. these tiny little flowers may not be too showy, but they think this is the first plant species to he's... yes! what a goal! it's all going off! ever flower on earth. so this is a the fans celebrate together with the players. really rare specimen! for the first cheering time in its history, the cambridge botanic garden has put its entire collection online. sam, this is like the first data base? collection online. sam, this is like the first database? 1881, fantastic entries here for the garden. and we move entries here for the garden. and we m ove o nto entries here for the garden. and we move onto the modern database you has bury put it away? have set up now. yep, so that would 2-1. is it too late? have set up now. yep, so that would have been, they originally would have been, they originally would have done everything by hand. the idea of keeping a record of what was going into the garden, essentially that book in front of you is now digital. let's suppose a search for there is the final whistle. west have done it. afamilyi digital. let's suppose a search for a family i know and love called eyes away see, you find out how many species we have got, where they are, where we got them from, did we get
them from another garden or did we i tell you what. get them from the wild? can find out we are too nice. some of us are running round like they don't know what's going on. what their conservation status is, are the threatened in the wild or not? anyone in the world can see what we have got. and so they can see our images, they can see our information, and by being visible, by being open, we are hoping to encourage more people to use it. good enough to deal with that. anyone can access the portal which we did it, though. don't tell me that is on their website, but academics were not working on stuff. it's the first game and the best and experts and other botanic thing about that is gardens all over the world are also the only way is up. we'll get a penalty or a free encouraged to order seeds and kick, he's in the box. that's what a good striker does. believes that they would like to he could have got us a penalty. study. there is something you know what's great about this, though? take a step back. interesting going on here. angie, we're talking about football again. you are the assistant curator and preparing a sample. a scientist has gone on to the border and would like to study something. chilis? yes, we've been here today, the fans have been they need some seeds from this together chanting and singing, there chilli. and what would they use has been shouting and it's brilliant to see everybody coming together again. these seeds for, what kind of the results might not always go studies with they do? from the seeds in our favour but we are doing this together and come hell or high they can either extract molecules water, this is the right thing to do like dna or rna, and they can use and it'sjust going to be epic.
what an amazing thing to say that you have put a football club together, you've helped to build this journey the seeds to grow plants in and hopefully in years to come we can experiments. the portal isn't about look back and think, this has been giving people gardening tips, it's brilliant. what a massive achievement. more scientific than that. but it is i'm not bothered that we have a window on one of the most lost, which is rare. interesting natural collections in the country. richard westcott, bbc it'sjust after a year of having no football to watch, it'sjust nice to watch some. news, the botanic garden in cambridge. it is 6:28 a.m., it's good to see the passion today definitely 6:28am if you are just and long may it continue. i'm proud and disappointed. but i think thatjust makes it real. waking up stay with us, headlines are coming up. you know, it is a real thing we have done. so i can happily go home, have my tea, have a beer. it was entertaining, i'll give it that with how feisty it was, i'll give it that. how the fans were around, you know, some people giving abuse to players. there is one there. it wasn't me! i'm too tired! we've done at what we said to do, we've created a football club.
right, google maps home. it's the penalty area! what a goal! hello and welcome to breakfast with sally nugent and ben thompson. good morning. here's a summary of today's main stories from bbc news: the government is facing mounting excited shouting pressure over its decision not to extend its meal vouchers scheme for vulnerable children during the school holidays. more than 2,000 doctors, including many leading paediatricians, have written an open letter to the prime minister calling for him to reverse the decision. the government says a further £1 billion has been made available 00:29:45,823 --> 2147483051:51:37,627 to local councils to support 2147483051:51:37,627 --> 4294966103:13:29,430 low income families.
the england striker‘s appealed for an end to online abuse over the issue, after mps were targetted on social media. a backlash over welsh supermarkets being banned from selling non—essential items during lockdown. the first minister says common sense should be applied. good morning. doing the double the devon way: exeter chiefs round off a remarkable week, beating wasps to add the premiership title to their european crown. good morning. another unsettled day. pa rt good morning. another unsettled day. part two of the weekend also windy. not as windy as yesterday but we should see a mixture of sunshine and showers. but more sunshine today than yesterday. 0nly showers. but more sunshine today than yesterday. only later for all the details. —— joined me later. good morning. --join. it's sunday, october 25. our top story: pressure is mounting on the government over its decision not to fund free meals
for vulnerable children during the school holidays. in an open letter to the prime minister, more than 2000 doctors, including many leading paediatricians, have backed a campaign led by the footballer marcus rashford, urging boris johnson to reverse the decision. 0ur political correspondent nick eardley reports. at old trafford yesterday, marcus rashford back at the dayjob for the goalless draw against chelsea. but there's work off the field — campaigning for free meals for schoolchildren over the holidays is getting him just as many headlines. with businesses cueing up to offer meals, and many local councils stepping in, too, he tweeted last night: he also condemned unacceptable abuse mps and their families had faced after days of charged debate online.
the government is saying its position won't change — its is not funding meals over the holidays, instead saying tens of millions has been given to councils to support families and billions is available for welfare support. but some mps are worried about that position. the former children's minister tim lawton said on facebook he wanted a change of policy. he wrote: this man, tobias ellwood, another tory mp, said providing meals was simple and practical in the holidays. labour has said that it will keep up the pressure on the government if it doesn't change its mind. and 2000 doctors working with young people are backing a change in policy, too, writing: scotland wales and northern ireland have set up their own schemes. in england, on the eve
of half term for many, the government is standing firm — but the debate goes on. nick eardley, bbc news. 0ur political correspondent jessica parkerjoins us now. good morning, jessica. is a u—turn on the way? the government is insisting it will not change course but they did you turn on this issue back in the summer because of a campaign by marcus rashford. i think what downing street will be weighing up todayisis downing street will be weighing up today is is this policy with the political pain? and some of the bad pr that they are getting. this morning you have doctors lining up saying the government should think again over the past few days community groups also stepping in saying there will feed children for families over the half term break off the back of the decision by the government not to continue free school meal provision. and some mps are saying publicly the government
should change its position, and some unease in private as well. as nick was saying, the labour party will try to bring a vote on this in weeks. mps have been getting some fla k weeks. mps have been getting some flak and the question is whether there will get up and vote against it again. and this time it will not be half term around the corner but christmas. the welsh government will review its ban on supermarkets selling non—essential items during lockdown, following growing pressure for the decision to be reversed. the measure was introduced as part of the tougher restrictions which came into force in wales on friday, as john mcmanus reports. behind bars and definitely out of bounds, this is the scene now greeting shoppers in welsh supermarkets, with a ban on selling non—essential items in force — the welsh government is sticking to packages such as food and medicine while ignoring toys, clothes and gifts.
but as the lockdown gets into full swing, not everybody is happy. a petition signed by more than 42,000 people has described the measure as "disproportionate and cruel" and calls for its reversal. in response, the first minister, mike drakeford, said he would review with supermarkets how the weekend had gone, but he reminded to only leave home if they had to. a 28—year—old man has been charged with criminal damage and controversial of coronavirus regulations following an incident at a supermarket in bangor. and the government will be watching the financial impact of the lockdown closely, with some saying the pricetag could reach £500 million. john mcmanus, bbc news. elsewhere, the isolation. for people who have been in contact with somebody with coronavirus has been
reduced. ministers are considering reducing 14 days to ten or seven days. britain's oldest person, joan hocquard has died in her dorset care home, at the age of 112. born in 1908, she was a keen sailor and drove an ambulance during the second world war. speaking to the bbc earlier this year, joan said she had no secret to her long life, but said she enjoyed butter and cream and scoffed at the idea of dieting. it sounds a pretty good advice to me. just a word on the time. it is seven minutes passed, eight minutes past seven. the clocks went back on our overnight. but a summertime officially ended so you may need to change some of the clocks around the house, the one on the mantelpiece,
the one on the oven. all those deadlyjobs. it is definitely eight minutes past seven as ben said and more conservative mps are calling on the government to reconsider its position on extending meal batches to vulnerable children during the school holidays. it's after the motion which was inspired by footballer marcus rashford's free school meals campaign was voted down in parliament earlier this week. we're joined now by conservative councillor louise mckinlay, cabinet member for children and families at essex county council. good morning to you, louise. what is your reaction, first of all, if you will, on the decision by the government not to extend school meals through the holidays. it is controversial. when you stand on the debate? the discussion in the last few days has clearly shown a very bright light on an incredibly important topic. and we all know we wa nt important topic. and we all know we want the same outcome and that is to ensure that eve ryone's want the same outcome and that is to ensure that everyone's children are not going hungry. the question you should be answering as how that is best achieved and that has certainly
been at the forefront of what we have been looking at in essex. in the summerwe have been looking at in essex. in the summer we were given some muggy from the government which we are using this half term to deliver activity sessions across the county. there will be 33 of them taking place, engaging young people in positive outdoor activities and enabling them to have a meal as well. crucially we will be looking to go well. crucially we will be looking togoa well. crucially we will be looking to go a step further and understand more about their families and also be able to support them, whether thatis be able to support them, whether that is taking him some supplies or signposting them for advice elsewhere. we have also taken the decision to give every food bank and associated food distribution organisation to a half thousand pounds with a big focus for this half term to ensure that those in the wider community who need support can get it as well. i want to come onto how people may access that support injust onto how people may access that support in just a moment. onto how people may access that support injust a moment. but onto how people may access that support in just a moment. but first of all let's talk about the idea of allocating money to local authorities so that they can be in charge of how it is spent. clearly what you have just told me
charge of how it is spent. clearly what you havejust told me is charge of how it is spent. clearly what you have just told me is that is what you believe is the best policy, letting local people make those decisions. i do think that is the best way of doing it and the reason for that is multitude, really. firstly every area is very different. if you're looking at how you would deliver a scheme in the ce ntre you would deliver a scheme in the centre of the city versus a more rural community, there could be some geographical issues that would need to be overcome. every area is different and i think local councils are best placed to understand that and certainly the approach that we are taking is the county council is working with community partners across the whole county to enable us to deliver that and we have been in close contact with the schools, with the food banks, with the essex family well— being service, the food banks, with the essex family well—being service, who know many of the vulnerable families very well. and we have been encouraging them to come forward and take advantage of this game. it builds on something we set in place last summerwhen we something we set in place last summer when we announced our working families programme in essex. we committed £1 million to looking at what we could do to support
families. we have taken a lot of time to speak to them directly and i think that is crucial in developing policy to understand what the day—to—day challenges are that they are facing. we never example that childcare, particularly in the school holidays, is a major challenge. the summer we set in place some summer camp activities across every city, borough and district across the county. providing a hot meal or sandwich meal for those children taking part. that is one example of the positive work that we're doing in essex. it isa work that we're doing in essex. it is a combination of funding from government, support from government, but also looking at what we need to do locally. and remember not everyone on a free school meal comes from a family of low— key everyone on a free school meal comes from a family of low—key income. it has been policy for some time now that with the exception year 1, yet two children will get free school meals. it is targeted support and thatis meals. it is targeted support and that is at the heart of what we have been doing. i want to talk about that because we know many families who need help will find it difficult to ask for it in the first place.
and that is one of the arguments why the school meals should continue because that policy is already in place. but if you look at the reaction, louise, lots of businesses, other councils are now offering to provide those meals. doesn't that show that the government is out of touch here, that local businesses are having to step into feed these children when government is not able to? so i think there is clearly a messaging issue here with what the government was to betray. i am talking from my experience on howl was to betray. i am talking from my experience on how i have worked with the system on this. we have had funding from government but i think it is about local councils also understanding their own communities and shipping out what it is that they need to do. what we're doing this term isjust they need to do. what we're doing this term is just the start they need to do. what we're doing this term isjust the start of it. building on what we did in the summer. it goes beyond just food. we are also looking to increase our laptop scheme that i launched in august whereby we are identifying families through the schools who will benefit from devices to enable them to be able to get online stop
particularly those in college who are doing blending learning at the moment to give every child the best opportunity in what are difficult circumstances. —— landed learning. we are all struggling in one way or another and we want to do what we can to make sure that the impact on children is as limited as possible. —— blended. good to talk to you, louise mckinley. thank you. thank you. labour says it will force another vote on the issue if the government doesn't change its policy before christmas. tulip siddiq is the shadow children's minister and joins us now. good morning. first of all let's talk about what the government is saying at the moment. they are saying at the moment. they are saying that they have given £1 billion to councils recently. they are giving more than if they were providing school meals alone. is it not better for control to come at a local level in this way? good morning, sally. iwas local level in this way? good morning, sally. i was listening carefully to what the counsellor before me was saying and she was talking a lot about what councils
are doing and let me start off by saying that i am proud of all the councils including the two in my constituency who are providing 's free school meals for children and also the businesses that have stepped up. but honestly, sally, i don't think it is the job of local councils and businesses. i don't know how we review —— i'm not sure how aware you are of the fact, that the cost to —— cuts to local councils have been £16 billion. there is £6 million outstanding after the covid—19 contributions. we had to make some difficult decisions about what we should prioritise. i genuinely believe that it is the job of the council to make sure that hungry children are fed. the counsellor before me also said every counsellor before me also said every counsellor is different. i absolutely agree with that. the priorities and needs of different
councils are different. but the hunger the children feel is the same everywhere. i would like government to provide free school meals for everyone over the holidays, notjust for councils that are stepping up. let me remind you that not every council has stepped up. it means it becomes a postcode lottery for some children. some children will benefit from sitting and living in a council where they have decided to prioritise free school meals. but other councils for various reasons might decide that that money needs to go elsewhere. those children will miss out. can i stop you there for one second? i don't want to run out of time. a couple of points i want to put to you. isn't it better that councils have more control because some children need more thanjust councils have more control because some children need more than just a meal a day, one meal a day? they need — families in a desperate situation need more support than that. i agree. you canjust spend one day in my inbox and you will see the
level of casework i am getting, but i also think if we have some sort of national framework where children are getting the free school meals and councils feel more needs to be done, particularly for vulnerable children and children with special educational needs and disabilities, which have really struggled in this dynamic, those with semd needs, they can do more. but for the government to sing does not that they haven't said it is their responsibility, but people saying that it is their responsibility, i feel that years and years of chronic underfunding for councils... ok. one thing i do know is that marcus rashford has said previously, he is not a politician, is not remotely interested in politics, and at the moment this has become a very political story, hasn't it? very, very divisive story. marcus rashford last night directly appealed for people to be civil and calm about this and to be kinder on social
media. inks have gotten quite nasty over the weekend and that has come from both sides, hasn't it? that is right. and i know marcus rashford isn't a politician, but i would love it if he would consider standing, i think they could use someone like him. marcus rashford, the amount of online abuse people are getting, and i don't care which party they are from, it isn't acceptable. i have been at the tail end of this, not in this issue but other issues, it is so demoralising and dreadful and ta kes a so demoralising and dreadful and takes a toll on your mental health. what i would say to you, sally, is a genuinely think, and not everyone may agree with me, i generally think that people come into politics for the right reasons. whatever political strike you may be, you probably came into this business because you want to help others and protect the most vulnerable. that is why when i close the debate in the chamber, a medically to mps to say this is a matter of conscience, humanity, and i know it is difficult to do in the party way. i have done
it in the past and it is difficult, i was saying, don't listen to the prime minister on this one, vote with us. five conservative mps did vote with us. more and more have come out from the conservative side, backing our call for free school meals and unfortunately 40 would have abstained. some may have been away, but i think conservative mps are realising this is principles before party. i am sorry this has become a political football for want ofa become a political football for want of a better phrase, but i do genuinely feel to come together and make a right decision on this, it would make a difference to so many children across the country. tulip, iam children across the country. tulip, i am sorry we are going to have to leave it there stop to live study ——we are going to have two leave it there. stav has the weather details. good morning. good morning to you at
home, it is going to be another blustery day today, sunshine and showers, a great day to snap some good photographs of all of the rainbows which will be appearing, the show is to be quite sharp with some hail and funded mixed in. and the winds are strong, not quite as strong as yesterday, we have this area low pressure with us, the struggles of the winds be close to the centre, so that is western scotland, northern parts of northern ireland. this is where we will see some of the showers merging together to produce longest because of rain. and on the south coast running into southern counties, some of these could be quite heavy, too. test of the sunshine north—east england and eastern scotland. these are average wind speeds, they will be higher than that when a gust along, particularly for western scotland, temperatures of10— particularly for western scotland, temperatures of 10— 14 degrees. as we go into monday, another day of sunshine and showers, most of them across the southern half of the country. and the savings will dry a little bit across scotland with increasing amounts of sunshine. again, temperatures on the cool side, 10— 13 celsius. again, temperatures on the cool side, 10- 13 celsius. back to you two. thank you, see you later.
you may remember on friday we heard from 80—year—old paul harvey — who lives with dementia. he became an internet sensation when he composed a piece of music spontaneously after his son gave him just four notes. i absolutely love this story. now the bbc philharmonic 0rchestra has recorded a version of his composition — and it will be heard for this first time this morning. we'll find out more in a moment but first let's listen to paul's amazing piano skills. if -- if--f if —— f natural. a, d, b natural. he hums t0 himself i was on track to do a partly trick, ican do i was on track to do a partly trick, i can do that sort of thing. and it
just took off, it was ridiculous. with music, you can do whatever you wa nt with music, you can do whatever you want with it in your mind. and that's howl want with it in your mind. and that's how i feel about it, music just carries on, it's a higher level than the printed word. we are living ina very than the printed word. we are living in a very peculiar world at the moment and things are not good. it gives people pleasure or, being moved is pleasure. that's great. how brilliant is that? we are joined by his son, nick harvey, and paddy 0'connell, the presenter of bbc radio 4's broadcasting house. good morning to you. i've been looking at how this has gone around the world. that video you put up has
really gone viral. just give me a sense of what it has meant to you and yourdad? sense of what it has meant to you and your dad? it's been absolutely crazy. it's been wonderful, it's been a well when, it's terrible rollercoaster over the past few weeks, but it has been amazing, i'm loving it, of course dad is loving it. i'm happy dad is getting the international recognition as a musician that i have always known he deserves. 80 years old and he has become world famous. it's crazy! it is brilliant, isn't it. if i could come to you, patty, how did you react when you heard boldly for the first time? well, i'm one of those people who grew up with a teacher trying desperately to make me practice. me too! bashing away, i bet you tried in the past. paul is an inspirational teacher who helped people when he was at work, but he has kind of taught me and other artists about living with dementia.
he was a teacher in his life of mirza, and now he is a teacher about the human spirit. oh! what a lovely way to describe him. —— teacher of music. in those moments when your dad is playing, is it like he is back again? do you know what i mean by that? totally. dad - the severity of his dementia fluctuates from day to day, and when it is bad, it can be pretty grim, really. when it is like that and i'm with him, i like to try to persuade him to go to the piano and play. honestly, the power of music is a wondrous thing. he comes back to life, it's transformational, and in this instance, i remembered an old party trick that she used to do, and the rest is history. he created this
absolutely stunning piece of music on the spot, and amazingly, the bbc philharmonic orchestra have recorded it! what on earth is going on! this is crazy. paddy, i know you played the music at the end of broadcasting house, your programme on the radio. explain how the philharmonic 0rchestra came onboard? explain how the philharmonic orchestra came onboard? well, basically our listeners have been saying, i don't know about you is of bbc breakfast, but they have been saying, "dear bbc, in your and that you have anything other than a daily diet of doom? is there anything else?" sounds familiar! have you got anything? suddenly, we played this and the listeners said ok, you have alighted accidentally because you wa nt to alighted accidentally because you want to tell as we are going to die, but you have accidentally alighted on something which implies that humans can survive and thrive in the
most horrible of circumstances. can you not let this go? so we were told by our listeners to get this orchestrated. we rang the bbc philharmonic orchestra, based like you in salford, just like the composer, under the stairs in a harry potter style or in their bedrooms recording this on lockdown, and the piece of music they have created is in isolation. and it's very moving to me to think that they have taken their lead from nick's dad paul harvey, and they have done what they can. you know what was? it's solidarity. millions of people live with dementia, they are not demented, they live with dementia. what paul has done is taught as a lesson. i'm very proud and pleased to say that we are students who are listening. paddy, i couldn't agree more. nick, you have said about your dad this could be a whole new
beginning for him. what is next? what is your dream ? beginning for him. what is next? what is your dream? well, what has been really interesting, actually, over the last few weeks this whole expense has really rejuvenated dad. he can remember lunch last sunday. my he can remember lunch last sunday. my wife and kids noticed he was much more focused, much more present, much more lives as hejust more focused, much more present, much more lives as he just had the zip he used to have, and i haven't seen him that lucid in a long time. so i'm hoping he carries on writing music, of course, and carries on playing, but with this recording, we're going to release it as a record to money for alzheimer's site is and music for dementia —— and alzheimer's society. fingers crossed this will be released next sunday, november one, on all major streaming platforms and all proceeds will go to charity. so that is the immediate
future. which is brilliant! that's incredible, isn't it. and we are at the time of the year when we may be talking about christmas number one is all that sort of thing. dad would make a good santa claus, actually. he is growing a beard event. paddy, what you make of it? well, i may give it that i feel like you do really — all of us have been so impressed by your team, the breakfast team, your viewers and your colleagues have helped him, assisted neck, and i spoke to nick la st assisted neck, and i spoke to nick last night to make sure that, you know, paul is ok. because obviously we other media, we are very good at arriving in people's lies, changing it and moving on. so we have done, with you we have worked very hard to make sure someone back and —— paul and nick feely 0k, and guess what, it is ok. to reassure your viewers
and our listeners, it is what it is, it came accidentally. they want it taken it came accidentally. they want it ta ken care of it came accidentally. they want it taken care of and they want it looked after. i think you are right, there is a lot of interest in what happens, and rightly so, because at this time, you know, what is there other than pluck western market other than pluck western market other than pluck western market other than pride? and also, other than passion? i feel very happy to have met paul and neck. and finally, you are not willing along to what paddy is saying. how are you going to listen along with your dad's new speakers later? i have plugged them ina speakers later? i have plugged them in a while ago and had them very few days. he hasn't used them yet. i have a good sound system. dad is watching at the moment. i will be with you in half—an—hour! i'll go around and we will listen to it
live. i am sure it will be very moving, unless it's just live. i am sure it will be very moving, unless it'sjust a live. i am sure it will be very moving, unless it's just a solo bassoon playing through lots of guitar pedals and stuff like that. i don't think they will take that experimental route. it is so lovely to speak to you both. paddy and to nick and to paul, as nick says, a very good morning to you. we will be listening. can i say to paul directly, i have piano envy, your piano is beautiful. gorgeous. real talent. and you can listen to the first play of four notes — paul's tune on radio 4 at nine a.m.. and we'll have more on paul's story here on breakfast tomorrow from 6 o'clock. and at 9am we will have the andrew marr show. andrew, good morning, another busy so, i imagine. we only nine days away from the us presidents of election, so we have
been looking at politics in the pandemic on both sides of the atla ntic pandemic on both sides of the atlantic stop we had anthony fauci, president trump's senior medical advisor on the programme and here i am talking to the wells health minister, brandon lewis and to sir ian dimon, the uk's top statistician. maybe it will help us a nswer statistician. maybe it will help us answer the simple question of what is going on? that is one way of putting it. see you later. stay with us, headlines coming up. hello to you.
good morning. welcome to breakfast with sally nugent and ben thompson. here's a summary of today's main stories from bbc news atjust after 7:30am. the government is facing mounting pressure over its decision not to extend its meal vouchers scheme for vulnerable children during the school holidays. more than 2000 doctors, including many leading paediatricians, have written an open letter to the prime minister calling for him to reverse the decision. the government says a further £1 billion has been made available to local councils to support low income families. the welsh government has said it will review its ban on supermarkets selling non—essential items following calls for the decision to be reversed. items such as clothes and toys were no longer available to shoppers when new restrictions came into force on friday. more than 40,000 people have signed a petition for the ban to be lifted. the isolation period for those who have been in contact with someone who has tested positive for coronavirus could be reduced. at the moment, people must quarantine for 14 days,
but ministers are considering shortening this to 10 or seven days. it's after senior conservative backbencher sir bernard jenkin joined those criticising the speed and effectiveness of the test and trace system. it's 7:32am and don't worry, your television isn't broken — the clocks did change last night. for many of us that means an extra hour in bed, but it also signals the dark nights drawing in, which can have an impact on our physical and mental health. we're joined now by our gp dr fari ahmed. good morning to you. nice to see you as always. look, let's talk about that idea of the clocks changing. it does have an effect, doesn't it? it is not just does have an effect, doesn't it? it is notjust psychological. physically we may feel very different today. yes. i think some of us will have been lucky to have an extra hour of sleep, but others, your internal clock wakes you up at
your internal clock wakes you up at your normal time so you have an extra hour in your day. there is some evidence that there is an impact on your health, i think. there is an evidence that make some evidence of heart attacks increasing at this time of year. —— there is some evidence of heart attacks increasing at this time of year. the evenings get darker and we will be indoors, depending where you are, and it is about making sure that you look after yourself physically and mentally, ready for the rest of this winter. i wanted to talk about some of those issues because we know mentally lockdown restrictions are tough even at the best of times, even when we have outside space, sunshine, you know, the share. now my people go about dealing with restrictions when the nights are darker and as you said we are spending more time inside? yes. so it is not going to be easy but i
think it is doable. plan your evening. make sure that you know what you are going to do. make sure that you have got something in there that you have got something in there that you have got something in there that you like to do, you know, a hobby or something that gives you pleasure. if you like socialising andl pleasure. if you like socialising and i know but particularly if you're living in some, you know, hygiene areas, it is hard to socialise. do it virtually, book in a call or some face time with somebody. make sure you are looking after your physical health because we know they can impact your mental health. getting darker, make sure you can get some exercise in. make sure your alcohol intake is, you know, sensible. i know and sometimes we can indulge a bitjust because it is nice and you are home and everything. it isjust keeping on top of all of those. although it will not be easy. you know, it feels
ha rd will not be easy. you know, it feels hard and! will not be easy. you know, it feels hard and i think it feels harder at the end of all the pandemic restrictions that we have had. sure, yes. we always knew this would be a marathon and we are in the middle of the hard bit of it now. normal service will resume but it will take some time. we just need to persevere through this. dr fari ahmed, some bright spots in all of this, exactly two months until christmas. we talk about christmas now, but first of all halloween. a lot of children might be getting excited about that. the advice is not it is not to go out. how can halloween be celebrated if people want to? a lot of the kids like to trick or treat. you may need to relook at that this year because there are different restrictions. certainly if you are in tier three it would be hard, you would be able to do that. there are things you can differ halloween. luckily they have had amazing trails, pumpkin trouser people are following. lots of visual
stuff. people are dressing up. i know some people are planning some scary movies with the family with everyone dressed up. they all sound great. it is good to have these alternatives. i know it is going to be different this year. a lot of things have been different this year. we will get there. i think. just this year. hopefully we will get back to normal soon. we will get there. a nice note to entered on. dr fari ahmed, nice to see you as always. it is good to have these events a re always. it is good to have these events are punctuated meetings feel different. i feel every day rolls into one. i like that positivity. we a lwa ys into one. i like that positivity. we always knew it was a marathon, we are in the difficult part, but we'll get there. and holly you have more good news? i bring you more good news. this is from the exeter chiefs. look happy now. we have been waiting for long months for the domestic season to be wrapped up. it is hard to believe that just ten years wrapped up. it is hard to believe thatjust ten years ago exeter
chiefs were not even playing in the top rugby union division in england. now they're european and domestic champions for the first time ever. they got their hands on the premiership trophy after beating wasps 19—13. high on confidence after last week's champions cup win the chiefs started well at twickenham as henry slade went over for an early try. before four penalties from captain joe simmonds edged his side to the victory and a second premiership title. exeter become only the fourth team in english rugby history to do the double. for us to double up is a massive indication of the commitment that these lads have to adjust to. more than anything else. and the desire to be successful together. when you win the cup would be very easy to go we can have a breath now because we have achieved something we dreamt of achieving. but we did. we lockdown early in the week and the biggest reason i am pleased with their owners that we celebrate two weeks, last week without it feeling better.
and after nearly an eight—month wait, the six nations returned as ireland thrashed italy 50 points to 17 in dublin. they scored seven tries in all, with debutant hugo keenan getting two of those as ireland sealed a bonus point win to go top of the table. the tournament wraps up next weekend. another bonus point win in france next weekend in the championships final round of matches and the title will belong to ireland. match of the day coming up on bbc one shortly. expect plenty of talk around another bit of var controversy as liverpool beat sheffield united last night. the visitors were awarded a penalty for fabinho apparently committing a foul inside the box. sander berge converted from the spot roberto firmino equalised just before half time before diogojota completed the turnaround to send the champions second. all the day's action on match of the day in around 15 minutes' time.
kevin nesbitt were the only goal from the penalty spot. that is his eighth of the season. elsewhere motherwell bit ross county. to a huge day in cycling because later britain could have only its second giro d'italia winner, with tao geoghegan hart perfectly placed to win his first grand tour. you can see him here in the blue overtake jai hindley to win the penultimate stage and become joint overall leader. so today's final stage is an individual time trial ofjust under ten miles to milan. 0n the race's previous time trial, he beat hindley by more than half a minute. a huge moment in the ufc last night with one of the biggest names
announcing his retirement. a very emotional reason to leave. this is what he posted on its again last night. his dad had died due to complications arising from covid—19. khabib nurmagomedov had told his mother that this would be his last fight. a lot of people had said that he might go on to win his 30th fight but what a legacy he leaves behind. really emotional scenes last night. thank you holly. it is just it isjust 7.40. it is just 7.40. you it isjust 7.40. you are on on bbc news. time now for click.
welcome to click. i hope you're doing 0k. i think it is time for a bit of star power. what do you reckon, lara? are you up for a bit of stardust? 0h, definitely. now, many a rock star and musician has swapped the mic for a go at being a movie star. madonna has done it, mickjagger has done it, beyonce too. but these days, video games are bigger than music and film combined. so no surprise one of the most famous names have appeared in games. stormzy is one of the most successful names in the music industry right now. but he is going to be swapping his next gig from the stage at glastonbury to the virtual streets of london in a video game. we met stormzy to chat about appearing in a game
set in his hometown, and how the art form has grown up and is now tackling material that talks to the troubled times that we live in. multi—award—winning rapper stormzy‘s new single rainfall has a video with a bit of a difference. music. it features the croydon—born musician as a video game character performing inside an actual game. i'm about to meet stormzy in the flesh. the game he is appearing in is set in a nearfuture london, and has themes of protest and resistance. i am keen to find out if he thinks this video game has any parallels with things that are going on in 2020. one of the game's main themes is about ordinary people banding together to resist and to fight back against an oppressive regime. do you think that is saying anything about the world that we live in right now?
it is very reflective of the times in the sense of, yeah, we, as people, need to be coming together. do you know what i mean? they capture that perfectly in the sense of like, your everyday person being more important than they realise, you know. so, yeah, definitely. a third—person action title, watch dogs legion takes place in a dystopian version of a future london, a state controlled by corrupt corporate interests. the player can recruit and control any of the thousands of characters they encounter on london's streets. performing missions that will ultimately bring down the authoritarian regime. all right, everyone! stormzy plays a version of himself and in this fictional world, he is a rapper whose message of resistance is transmitted via a pirated video signal. he spent three days being performance captured at ubisoft‘s toronto studio.
so, follow the gps, that should take you there. whoa, whoa. stormz, what are you doing? riding recklessly. 0n the back of horseguards, there. it is so london. is it special being in the game that is set in london? it's the most. i am london. london is me. like i am a proper london boy through and through. and so, it's my city and i love it dearly. it is a big part of me as a man and an artist and my character. this is mad. my bank is up there, literally. if i turn... for people that don't know london, that's coutts and co. the same bank as her majesty the queen! bro, that is me.
that is more me than a flipping picture. this is mental! stormzy is not the only musician to appear in a video game, he joins a long list of other artists that include the likes of 50 cent. and who could forget david bowie? you are not the first video game player to get your soul trapped. some efforts could be put down to cashing in on star power to shift games. but sometimes it's about an artist experimenting with the new medium. and there are some points of convergence between the two art forms. there is a long history of music being used for protest and to provoke thought about things that are going on in the world today. do you think that video games have the power to do that as well? 100 million per cent. any platform, whatever way, shape orform, or whatever mediums we use as creatives and artists, it's a platform to speak out against injustice,
for it to be like pillars of truth or whatnot. especially with video games. even down to the reach of video games is astronomical. yeah, 100%. especially with the times we are in, anything can be a platform to speak out. away from games and your music career, your bursaries to universities, cambridge, is up and running. how important is it to use your position to do the things that you are doing? i am so blessed. i have so many platforms and so much reach, and i feel that it is my duty and responsibility to share what i have. do you think that that means there is something wrong, that there is something that we need
to think about things a little bit differently? these things are set up to address the uneven and injustices in a lot of these areas of society. so, there's so many other people of influence or artists or public figures doing these things to try to just, to uplift those who need it a bit. from best—selling grime artist to glastonbury headliner, and now taking on the world of games. the south london star continues to shine. while microsoft and sony are racing to be crowned champion in the next generation console wars, nintendo has done something very nintendo and said, never mind that ultra high—definition gaming, how about some augmented reality racing cars? this is mario kart live home circuit, which takes the best—selling nintendo game and turns your house into the racetrack. and the way this works is pretty clever. the kart contains a camera that streams live footage of your living room to the nintendo switch console which you use as the remote control. in the box are four cardboard gates.
you can set them up around your home in whatever configuration the space will allow you to form your racetrack. the software can recognise the gates as you drive through them, creating the course as you go. you also get cardboard barriers with arrows that help you navigate and are augmented with animations. once you are set up, it's like a regular game of mario kart. there are other characters to race against. there are power—ups and weapons to use against them. but it's all taking place from a mouse—eye—view in your own living room. you can also race up to four of these karts together to play multiplayer in your living room, if you've got the space, but it will need a nintendo switch
console for each one. it goes without saying that you need a fair bit of space to set this up. but you can arrange it in a modest—sized living room and that is because even though on screen it looks like the karts are zooming around the racetrack, in the real world, the kart isjust trundling around the living room fairly slowly. it can also make some pretty sharp turns, so you can set it up in a smaller room. although i think you get more out of this with more space. there are some limitations to the software. not all the power—ups work in the way you expect them to in the regular mario kart game. you cannot hold a banana behind your kart to protect yourself from shells. even though bullet bill does steer you around the track automatically, which i thought was quite impressive, it cannot detect obstacles, so you end up crashing quite a lot. in fact, the augmented reality layer doesn't handle occlusions. so the track is always overlaid on top of the camera feed. so, here the track should disappear behind the table leg, it doesn't, and that means you tend to crash more than you would expect, although that's a part of the madness, and when you crash, your character reacts on screen. the big question for all augmented reality applications is how much do
you actually get out of this once you are over that initial moment of "this is cool"? most of the players i know who are still playing pokemon go have turned off the ar camera effects, because even though they look cool, they ultimately add very little to the gameplay. and i think that may also be the issue here. but, as with all augmented reality games, i am left with the question: "how is this better than playing this on the console?" ultimately, i think it is not. it's just different. it is a different take on mario kart and that's fine. hard to say whether this will have the same enduring appeal as the traditional console game, but mario kart is the best—selling game on the nintendo switch, and if any franchise can take ar mainstream, it's probably mario kart. that was chris, turning his floor into a racetrack. how cool was that? brilliant. let's go from racetracks in your house to lasers in the sky. back injune, we told you that this
laser maestro had been showing his appreciation to carers and nhs staff by projecting love and thanks across his home city of brighton. after a trial earlier this month, laser light city is happening this weekend in leeds. with cities under lockdown and local autumn light shows unable to happen, the idea here is that 25 lasers mounted on buildings around the city will put on a show that residents can see regardless of restrictions on social gatherings. seb created all the control software himself. but this is an interactive show, meaning thousands of people were able to log on to a special website and take control of the lasers. changing the colour, shapes and direction of the beams which can be seen up to ten miles away. as the dark nights draw in, seb is hoping he can light up more cities, and bring a little laser sparkle
to these unusual autumn evenings. i love it! we are normally talking about fireworks at this time of year. but i prefer a laser display any day. absolutely. fireworks come with so many noise issues, for animals and for many people as well. it's lasers all the way for us. that's it for the short cut of click. the full—length version is up on iplayer and it is waiting for you right now. as ever, you can find the team online throughout the week on youtube, instagram, facebook and twitter @bbcclick. thank you for watching, and we will see you soon. bye— bye. it is 7:53am. you
here's stav with a look at this morning's weather. this was snapped at 40 minutes ago, gosport in temperature, cluster of heavy showers, pushing into the south—east. some heavy rain with some of the showers. today is going to be another one of sunny spells in blustery showers, some of them will be heavy with hail and thunder run. as acting northern, western and southern areas, all tied in with this area of low pressure, and have read that spread across the country yesterday, more shower regime. not quite as windy as we had yesterday, but we have those showers, some heavy ones across southern and eastern areas, irish sea coast and some of them merged together for longer spells of rain for northern ireland. those winds are a feature for all areas, like i mentioned, these are the mean wind speeds. touching 50 miles an hour or so
across western scotland in some of the strongest gust. central and eastern england, particularly north—east which is the best of the sunshine and maybe escape the showers altogether and stay dry. a cooler feel to the weather, 10—14. yesterday we saw high teens celsius across the south—east. tonight, it stays blustery, further showers, even longer spells of rain across the north and west of the country, some could be quite heavy in the south. a few dry interludes or lengthy ones across the east, temperatures falling into low single figures. for most around 7— night. monday starts off in a showery note across northern and western areas, some of them could be heavy, may be longer spells of rain a time, i think the theme as we head through monday, thai scented afternoon, most of these showers become more confined to england and wales, drying up process and good portions of scotland. the next frontal is two
hertz tone will sweep through the course of tuesday, after a chilly start, some of that rain can be quite heavy and the winds picking up once again to reach. places. a cool feel across the north of the country, may be something a little bit lighter, milder, moving into the south—west. as we move through the week though, it stays unsettled, it will be quite windy and it will bring quite a bit of rain as we move through thursday and friday. it was not to pick up some other air from the south—west, it is going to be u nsettled, the south—west, it is going to be unsettled, the temperatures picking up unsettled, the temperatures picking up to the high teens celsius across southern and south—eastern areas. very unsettled, danny tom the week to come. very appropriate. —— very autumnal week to come. it's been seven months but ballet dancers have returned to the stage at birmingham repertory theatre as doors opened to the public once again. there's hand sanitiser,
temperature checks, and even socially distanced tutus to keep everyone safe, as ben sidwell reports. excited, thoroughly excited. really excited, so going to be back. excited, thoroughly excited. really excited, so going to be backm feels very liberating to be out and doing something normal. it's just so wonderful to see it back. it has been 220 days since the birmingham repertory theatre opened its doors to an audience. it's incredible, actually. we are sort of amazed we are here. there is something just so horrible about a com pletely something just so horrible about a completely empty theatre. there is nothing so dead as an empty theatre. it has been like that for seven months. to have life in it, it is a wonderful feeling. the months. to have life in it, it is a wonderfulfeeling. the birmingham royal ballet's five socially just and showers sold out in a matter of hours. usually able to hold almost 900, each performance will be watched by fewer than 150 people.
900, each performance will be watched by fewer than 150 peoplem excited. there has been so many ups and downs along the way. we followed the same model that the professional sports world was approved by government to do. our artist came back, working, dividing into bubbles. included in the 80 minute performance, the world premiere of a new ballet, the night sky, inspired by social distancing and costumes designed to keep them apart on stage. we have really missed it, we have really missed light theatre. we have really missed it, we have really missed light theatrem we have really missed it, we have really missed light theatre. it is extremely moving. i found it a little overwhelming. when you go back in, you can see how it worked. i don't understand why it can't go back to normal like this everywhere. a ballet for the moment to mark a return to theatre.
more pressure on the government as thousands of doctors back marcus rashford's campaign for free school meals during the holidays. the england striker‘s appealed for an end to online abuse over the issue, after mps were ta rgetted on social media. a backlash over welsh supermarkets being banned from selling "non—essential" items during lockdown. the first minister says "common sense" should be applied. doing the double — the devon way. exeter chiefs round off a remarkable week — claiming the premiership title to add to their european crown. good morning to you. it is another unsettled day. part two at weekend also quite windy. maybe not quite as quite as windy as it was yesterday and we should see a mixture of sunshine and showers. but i think there is a better chance of seeing more sunshine today than what we saw yesterday as well. join me later fof all the details. it's sunday the 25th of october. our top story... pressure is mounting on the government over its decision not to fund free meals
for vulnerable children during the school holidays. in an open letter to the prime minister, more than 2000 doctors, including many leading paediatricians, have backed a campaign led by the footballer marcus rashford, urging boris johnson to reverse the decision. 0ur political correspondent nick eardley reports. at old trafford yesterday, marcus rashford back at the day job for the goalless draw against chelsea. but his work off the field, campaigning for free meals for schoolchildren over the holidays is getting him just as many headlines. with businesses queueing up to offer meals and many local councils stepping in too, he tweeted last night, "the compassion and empathy i've seen over the last 48 hours has really blown me away. "i am so, so thankful and so very proud." he also condemned unacceptable abuse mps and their families had faced after days of charged debate online. the government is saying
its position won't change, it isn't funding free meals over the holidays, instead saying tens of millions is being given to councils to support families and billions is available for welfare support. but some conservative mps are worried about that position. the former children's minister tim loughton said on facebook he wanted a change of policy. he wrote, "i will now lobby ministers to reverse this decision for the christmas break. " this man, tobias ellwood, another tory mp, said providing meals simple and practical in the holidays. labour has said today it will keep up the pressure, enforce more votes on the issue if the government doesn't change its mind. and 2000 doctors working with young people are backing a change in policy too, writing today, "childhood hunger is an issue that should transcend politics. few would disagree that one of our most basic human responsibilities is to ensure children have enough to eat." scotland, wales and northern ireland
have set up their own schemes. in england, on the eve of half term for many, the government is standing firm, but the debate goes on. 0ur political correspondent jessica parkerjoins us now. so the pressure is mounting. 0ne would wonder whether a u—turn could be on the way? we are hearing from the government at the moment that is not going to happen but of course they did a u—turn back in the summer because of a campaign on the issue by marcus rashford, extending free school meal provision over the summer holidays will stop what ministers are saying is they have increased support in other ways, billions of pounds in welfare support and millions of pounds to councils who can offer more targeted help for struggling families. but something labour is saying is that doesn't necessarily reach every family across england, the shadow education minister has been speaking to you guys in the last hour. let me remind you that
not every council has stepped up which it means it becomes a postcode lottery for some children will benefit, but other councils for various reasons might just benefit, but other councils for various reasons mightjust decide that money needs to go elsewhere and those children will miss out. you have some tory mps calling for a rethink on this and quite a lot of only behind—the—scenes as well. interestingly labour has said, as nick was reporting, they are going to try and bring another vote, there was one on wednesday, on free school meals over the coming weeks. parliament is not sitting next week but they are going to try to do it before christmas and you have to ask whether tory mps will want to line up whether tory mps will want to line up again and vote against the idea of free school meal provision again when christmas is around the corner. 0ne we will keep an eye on. jessica, thank you for now. the welsh government has said it will review its ban on supermarkets
selling nonessential items following calls for the decision to be reversed. items such as clothes and toys were no longer available to shoppers when new restrictions came into force on friday. more than 40,000 people have signed a petition for the ban to be lifted. the isolation period for those who have been in contact with someone who has tested positive for coronavirus could be reduced. at the moment people must quarantine for 14 days, but ministers are considering shortening this to ten or seven days. it's after senior conservative backbencher, sir bernard jenkin, joined those criticising the speed and effectiveness of the test and trace system. there have been long queues at polling stations in new york and florida, on the first day of early voting for the us election. more than 57 million people have already cast their ballot either in person or by mail. with just ten days left in the race, both president trump and his democratic challenger joe biden have been campaigning in key swing states. the race for strictly come dancing's
glitterball trophy began last night with the first live show of the new series. and don't we needed? stringent measures have been put in place to ensure everyone involved is safe — including a socially distanced audience. but despite the new rules, the show‘s hoping it can preserve the old sparkle. andy moore reports. hello and welcome to strictly come dancing, and our first live show of 2020. the sequins and razzamatazz are still there, but coronavirus has forced some changes to the show‘s winning formula. the small audience were chosen from front line nhs workers. the dancers won the normal praise and criticism. what a way to open the show, with all that glitz and glamour. it was all very flat—footed, i am afraid, and very stiff of hip, darling. the arms are totally wild.
very tight, very restricted. former home secretaryjacqui smith chose a political theme for her performance. when you consider theresa may, darling, and her dancing, i think you are ten times better than that. so well done. they show‘s professional dancers will all have to live on their own for the duration of the show so that they can form a coronavirus bubble with their celebrity partners. one half of the couple will be living on their own — at least one half, and in some cases they are both living on their own — and in the other half, they can remain with their household. eastenders' maisie smith wowed the judges with her samba, while boxer nicola adams showed some fancy footwork as one half of strictly‘s first same—sex couple. i was very curious — how will it all happen, how will it work? and you haven't disappointed me.
but the best came last, as the singer harvey got the highest score of the night for this energeticjive. this season may be shorter, with fewer celebrities because of covid, but the magic is still there. i love a good firework finish. and if you're confused about what time it actually is, the clocks went back an hour overnight as british summer time officially came to an end. it is now 8:08. we gotan we got an extra hour in bed, but i spent a lot of the time paranoid i would not get up. so it was no use whatsoever. will my alarm change? it is about that. the clock on the screen is
right! it's the first weekend for people in wales living under tight lockdown restrictions again. non—essential shops have closed and everyone is being urged to stay at home. but police there are warning how much more challenging the new rules will be to enforce this time around. we're joined now by the police and crime commissioner of dyfed—powys, dafydd llewellyn. good morning. thank you very much for setting your alarm and talking to us this morning. how challenging will the lockdown be for people living in wales and near the border? i think it will be challenging from a point of view that this has been going on for some time now. what is good about the new restrictions in wales is that they are consistent across the whole of wales so the restrictions on individuals are consistent whether you live in east wales, in south wales, north or mid and west wales so from that point of view, i think it is welcomed from a point of view of having the
consistency because we have been going through a period where we have had hyper local lockdowns in wales and some might argue it is now less confusing because this impacts the whole of wales. what you make of the decision to sell only essential items in shops and what few counts as an essential item and what should people not be allowed to buy? as an essential item and what should people not be allowed to buy7m as an essential item and what should people not be allowed to buy? it is not in myjob description to define what is deemed to be a necessity in terms of a household item. what the welsh government has done is ultimately try and limit and restrict the shops that are open to food supplies, medicine and as i described those household items that are deemed to be a necessity. they have committed to look at that this week and there has been some confusion in relation to that but from a policing point of view of the key m essa g es from a policing point of view of the key messages of staying local and for individuals to stay within their household is quite a clear one. where the police will be active and visible in the community will be about educating and engaging with
the public in the first instance and then moving into an enforcement phaseif then moving into an enforcement phase if they deem it necessary. if people are travelling vast distances and do not have a reasonable excuse for their journey. and do not have a reasonable excuse for theirjourney. if somebody wants to buy an item of clothing or perhaps a tie for a child, will they be stopped? well, it is not about that from a policing point of view. they will engage with the public and if they disclose that is the reason, i guess they would advise them it is not a necessity deemed under the current guidelines and as a result of that, ask at the individual to return the journey. it isn't about the detail of it from a policing point of view, it is more about the messaging and what we are trying to get is the message that is consistent in wales for people to ta ke consistent in wales for people to take responsibility, stay within their households and local and as a result of that we must remember that we are in an emergency situation dealing with a pandemic, we hope the two week firebreak lockdown will
have an impact. we know that dyfed — powys have an impact. we know that dyfed—powys police have tweeted to say they are not actually patrolling the border so how is travel being monitored or pleased at the moment? the point about that tweet on social media was the about the border checks between england and wales and thatis checks between england and wales and that is not the police are there to do, we are there to be fillable delete visible. we transcend two thirds of the landmass of wales so we need to be visible and present and show a presence within of our communities, acting to safeguard the community, try to ensure people are restricting their travel where possible and as a result of that having an impact on the spread of the virus. and from white police officers are telling you, is there now and acceptance of the rules in wales —— and from welsh police officers. the public in wales have
been very good in her dearing to the —— adhering to the rules. there have been some individuals that have been given notice and individuals asked to move on their way and return journeys. but that is what the police would expect during this period but in the main the majority of the population of wales understand what the restrictions mean and are playing their part. thank you very much. let's talk about some of the wider issues. we're joined now by epidemiologist, dr mike tildsle. we were talking thereabout wales and the specific restrictions applicable there. there are restrictions in england, scotland and northern ireland to varying degrees. i wonder festival whether you think the public are still on—board with the restrictions and the need to restrictions and the need to restrict movement and gathering and
as you heard there, things like essential and nonessential retail.|j think it is certainly a concern in time. what we have seen in the last few weeks is the uk government, the devolved administrations going in slightly different directions when it comes to controlling policies and it comes to controlling policies and it will be interesting to see the effectiveness of that going forward. we are at a difficult time because we have been under some level of restrictions on server 7—8 months and understandably the general public are getting fatigued. i think the key thing we need at this point is very clear messaging. i think the welsh situation is interesting because they have the firebreak in place and it is very fixed duration. my place and it is very fixed duration. my expectation is we will see slightly higher levels of it here, given we know it is the only measure for a fixed period of time. the situation england is a bit more difficult because with the tier system the worry i have is it is a
lot more difficult to say go down a tier than it is to go up a tier and if we have a situation such as in liverpool or greater manchester where tier three is not sufficient to get the letter and number below one we may have a situation where it is difficult for those regions to get out of tier three and he may have a drop in adherents in the regions. the idea of an exit strategy has been talked about a lot. what needs to be done for this to end. you would say in wales' case, there is a specific time limit, people might be more likely to adhere to something that may end where is there is a danger that the restrictions that have been brought in in some parts of the country do not have an end in sight. absolutely. this is why myself and some of my colleagues who have been pa rt some of my colleagues who have been part of the government modelling group have been advocating the idea ofa group have been advocating the idea of a circuit breaker for the whole of a circuit breaker for the whole of the uk for a few weeks. it is not an ideal strategy and we are in a
situation where there is no ideal strategy going forward. the advantage with the circuit breaker is we can have something in place for a short duration if the general public know that a measure will be in place for two, three weeks and thenit in place for two, three weeks and then it will definitely be lifted and if it is stringent enough that it can bring the number below one, what we could do is potentially buy ourselves several weeks, 5—6 weeks in terms of where we might bring the levels of incidents down to her. i think that is particularly important. lots of people are now starting to think towards christmas and are we going to have some of the measures in place over the christmas holidays? that idea of a national lockdown, lots of debate about whether it is applicable in england, whether it is applicable in england, whether it is applicable in england, whether it would make a difference and so many different areas with different levels of infection and transmission. do you still think that that is possible?” transmission. do you still think that that is possible? i think it is
more difficult now, one of the challenges is with schools. every timei challenges is with schools. every time i have given an interview, i have always stayed at my position really clearly that children should stay in school where ever possible. the long term journey pj to education to children being out of school is huge. this is why doing it over the half term period would minimise the impact of that and now it is much more difficult because if you put a circuit breaker in place later, what you do then about schoolchildren? in terms of the regional differences, i think it is to point out the r number is greater than one everywhere, even in the south—west on the latest forecast would say the r number is somewhere between 1.3 and would say the r number is somewhere between1.3 and 1.6. would say the r number is somewhere between 1.3 and 1.6. even though the number of cases are very low now, if something more is not done then in a few weeks' time, even the areas where incidence is low, we might expect them to progress into the higher tiers. it is the 25th of
0ctober, two months until christmas. what hope is that we will have anything like a normal christmas this year? i think saying we will have a normal christmas, i think thatis have a normal christmas, i think that is not realistic but what i would really like, ithink that is not realistic but what i would really like, i think it's very important we do what we can so that at least some of these can be together at christmas was that i would like to see something like we can relax the rule of six to a rule of ten are something that allows most largerfamilies to of ten are something that allows most larger families to be together. if we want to achieve that, we really need to take action now over the coming weeks to bring the r number down to buy ourselves that time. i think it is very important we have a relaxation over christmas so people can be together but it needs urgent action now so we can reduce the incidence and get it down toa reduce the incidence and get it down to a level that he can relax a little bit over the christmas period. it is good to talk to you. thank you for your that this morning. i can't believe it is only
two months until christmas. tricky and complicated time. really tough for a of families. here's stav with a loo at this morning's weather. it looks very dramatic. good morning. this looks like a summer weather watcher pictures sent in by one of the weather watchers from gosport in hampshire, the showers are quite sharp, hail and thunder mixed in running along the south coast in the last hour. it will be a very showery day, low—pressure nearby, we will not see the prolonged rain like yesterday so some of us will get to see the sunshine, so it will be quite a good day for spotting rainbows. this low pressure will sit to the north west, this is where the strongest winds will be just to the south—east fla nks will be just to the south—east flanks affecting northern ireland in western scotland. a breezy day for all, most of the showers in the north and west and a few will push into the south—west and along the south coast and we will see some of
the heavy ones in the channel. best of the sunshine in central eastern england, eastern scotland. it is going to be a blustery day, these are the mean wind speeds, gusts higher than that could be touching 50 mph across western scotland when the showers come along. it will feel a bit cooler than yesterday, especially in the south—east, with highs of 17 degrees, but the 10—14 today. this evening and overnight, blustery, showers across southern and western areas, but eastern areas could stay dry throughout the night. we could see the temperatures drop to around that, 5 degrees otherwise the highest single figures by the west because of the cloud and breeze. monday, the area of low pressure still with us so that the winds will turn lighter, the showers will become a more confined to
england and wales. dry weather for scotland. on the cool side again, ten — 13 degrees, may be fighting in the far south—west. a ridge of high pressure, then the next frontal system pressure, then the next frontal syste m m oves pressure, then the next frontal system moves in from the south—west so another wet and rather windy day, the temperatures 9—13, could see 14 in the south—west. it stays very u nsettled in the south—west. it stays very unsettled through the rest of the week with low pressure always nearby, could see a risk of gales and rain at times. and rain at times. it is not good news but that it feels appropriate given the clocks went back. very autumnal. look at that, no good. thank you. at least you are not doing this next job. which is one of the most challenging at this time of year. a farmer has received a prestigious "hero" award for his efforts during the coronavirus pandemic. sam stables took an entire flock of pregnant sheep from yorkshire to his farm in hereford and lambed them for a friend who
was ill with the virus. he and his wife emily have also been praised for setting up a mental health charity for farmers. sam joins us now. iam i am delighted to say salmon joins us now. morning. lovely deceivers but i bet you have been up for hours already. i have. good morning. we have a 19—month—old child who is definitely an early riser. and obviously doesn't know about the clock change. he definitely doesn't know about that. tell us what happened. end of march, a good friend of mine who him and his wife pretty much brought me up really in the yorkshire dales, he is a type two diabetic, david, and he came down with symptoms of covid during lambing his sheep and he became very
ill, he was rushed into hospital and we we re ill, he was rushed into hospital and we were not sure on the sunday night whether he was going to get through the night. his wife carol was left at home, she was showing symptoms of covid, fortunately not to the same degree that i was at home in hereford are not able to help due to the restrictions and i thought the only thing i could do to help was to try and get the sheep down to our farm. it ended up on the friday and on the saturday morning we had our first pair of healthy lambs. that is incredible. just how big of an operation was it on that night to get the sheep to you? unfortunately from being up there, i knew a harley a who was happy to help and a
forming friend of david gathered the sheep into a pen and they got them loaded up and they may be 200 mile journey down to us in hereford. so again, very symptomatic of british agriculture, farmers pulling together, working with each other as they always do and we made it happen. how does it feel to have won an award for what you did?|j happen. how does it feel to have won an award for what you did? i am incredibly humbled because it is not just me, it is everybody, i have amazing neighbours, farmers as neighbours, amazing wife who is a massive support. it is a different life is being a farmer and it is a tea m life is being a farmer and it is a team effort and there is so many
amazing people within the industry. absolutely here we are with a covid, the nurses and doctors doing an amazing job at the british farmers have kept us in food and the best food there is. tell us how prince charles fits in with all of this because he is not only our landlord, he is quite a big fan of your work. —— not only your landlord. he is quite a big fan of your work. -- not only your landlord. we have an amazing landlord in his royal highness and a massive campaign of british agriculture and he is fantastic to his tenants and he loves it out here, the countryside and he has been incredibly supportive of the new mental health charity myself and my wife set up and he made an incredible kind donation to our charity which is amazing. how difficult a time has it
been a forfarmers, amazing. how difficult a time has it been a for farmers, talking about mental health, how hard is it been for the last few months?” mental health, how hard is it been for the last few months? i think covid is a massive example of what the general public have gone through. that is something british farmers have gone through the decades. there is a horrendous statistic, many farmers taking their lives each year, a difficult industry to be in, you have the weather, financial worries, there are so many factors, it is part of your life, it is your family and mental health within the industry, we wa nt mental health within the industry, we want a giant break the stigma of mental health in forming and we are working with an incredible company, working with an incredible company, working to educate in mental health
first aid training for vets who go out on the farms and see farmers and try and identify when farmers are struggling. so that we can hopefully try and prevent that horrendous statistic and reduce that number. sam, important work. thank you very much indeed and congratulations on the award. he came to the rescue when his friend was ill. what an amazing story. a brilliant story. now do something entirely different. we are going to talk about jason and the argonauts. from jason and the argonauts to clash of the titans, ray harryhausen was the special effects pioneer who brought to life the monsters, aliens and mythical creatures in some of cinema's greatest films. they gave me nightmares as a kid! now the largest exhibition
of his stop—motion animation is finally arriving at the scottish national gallery of modern art. christopher bobyn has been taking a look. whirring. movie trailer: flying saucers have invaded our planet! never before has the screen reached such heights of excitement! you may not know his name, and his films could be dismissed simply as b—movies, the stuff of matinee monsters and damsels in distress. a world of primeval terror and savagery! but if you've watched lord of the rings, or even wallace and gromit, you've seen his legacy at work. from ray harryhausen. .. ray harryhausen was a special effects pioneer, an artist whose ground—breaking stop motion animation changed cinema. and now at the scottish national gallery of modern art, an expansive exhibition collects
harryhausen's previously unseen illustrations, stop motion models and items from his archives. what you're seeing in this exhibition is notjust somebody who created special effects, you're seeing a living, breathing archive. ray kept everything, he kept all of his drawings, all of the storyboards, all of his artwork. what ray was doing was bringing the world of fine art and classic myth and interpreting it for a new generation, interpreting it for a mid—20th century cinema—going audience. and it's incredible to see the gestation of these ideas from the simplest sketch right the way through to the final movie. a career spanning four decades is on display, but also on show is an artistic innovation, that, using limited technology, managed to capture worlds of fantasy in a way that modern techniques still fail to do. now with cgi it's kind of losing
the special effect—effect. it's so easy to make special effects, that they are not special any more. whereas in a ray harryhausen film, you just wait for them and they are incredible when they occur. moving balljoint armatures incrementally frame by frame by frame, one day of painstaking work would produce at most two seconds of finished film. it's not by chance that the work of an american film—maker is being displayed in edinburgh. his wife was the great—granddaughter of famed scottish explorer david livingstone, and his daughter, vanessa harryhausen, has made scotland her home. he's notjust a film producer, he was an artist in himself. and he always wanted youngsters and young film—makers and artists to be able to get access
to this, and get enthused. so i think the galleries here have done a superb job. the new titan of cinema exhibit runs until september 2021, allowing visitors to see over 400 items, including his childhood models, teenage animation tests, and showing where all of that hard work would lead — there's one of these too. christopher bobyn, bbc news. incredible scenes there. very cool. and proper artistry as well. i mean, painstaking, incredible stuff. stay with us, headlines coming up.
hello and welcome to breakfast with sally nugent and ben thompson. it's 8.32, here's a summary of this morning's main news. the government is facing mounting pressure over its decision not to extend its meal vouchers scheme for vulnerable children during the school holidays. more than 2000 doctors, including many leading paediatricians, have written an open letter to the prime minister calling for him to reverse the decision. the government says a further one billion pounds has been made available to local councils to support low income families. the welsh government has said it will review its ban on supermarkets selling non—essential items following calls for the decision to be reversed. items such as clothes and toys were no longer available to shoppers when new restrictions came into force on friday. more than 40,000 people have signed a petition for the ban to be lifted. the isolation period for those who have been in contact with someone who has tested positive
for coronavirus could be reduced. at the moment people must quarantine for 14—days, but ministers are considering shortening this to ten or seven days. it's after senior conservative backbencher, sir bernard jenkin, joined those criticising the speed and effectiveness of the test and trace system. do you want to see some happy smiling faces? let's go to sport. notjust mine, exited cheese. it didn't matter that most of the fans could not be there, this was a remarkable moment for the side. it's been an incredible year in fa ct, it's been an incredible year in fact, after the longest domestic season ever, they have now made history by sealing a domestic and european double for the very first time. just a week on from their champions cup win — they beat wasps 19—13 at twickenham to claim the prmeiership title too. all thatjust a decade after the club were promoted to english rugby's top flight.
austin halewood has the story. now they are premiership winners. of the season lasting more than 12 months, exeter arrived at an eerie empty twickenham, filled with confidence and from the start, that was plain to see. henry weaving his way through the wasps defence to put his side into an early lead. a nightmare start for wasps you had 11 players from the squad ruled out because of national outbreak. jacob made sure they were not there to make up the numbers, as wasps drew level. but as the conditions worsened and the tension began to build, it was exeter that edged ahead through the boot ofjoe simmons. a slender lead that wasps could not quite reach. mistakes in the end cost them. exeter kicked their way to a second premiership title, and became only the fourth
tea m title, and became only the fourth team in english rugby history to do the double. what an achievement that is. here to give us his reaction is former england captain kyran bracken. good morning. good morning. good morning. good morningm good morning. good morning. if! had to ask you 15 years ago that exeter cheese with the premiership and european champions, what would you have said? —— exeter chiefs. have said? -- exeter chiefs. it is a fairy tale ending for them, ten years later from being in the championship, here they are emulating the likes of the richer rivals, saracens. they have won the championship before but this was really important for them to get the european championship under their belt. you can imagine when you have won something like that, you can take your foot off the gas pedal. it was a tough game for them are difficult conditions, against a resurgent
wasps team, missing some of the place. but to be fair to exeter, they deserve to have a fantastic campaign, they can be proud of themselves. i'm sure quite a few of themselves. i'm sure quite a few of the place can look on to potentially getting them england caps, like the captainjoe getting them england caps, like the captain joe simmons. the squad is a wealth of home—grown talent. the squad because much ability tojust talent. the squad because much ability to just slot in is just remarkable. he stands out for you? the likes of luke, i think he scored so many tries from five yards out. they have added a bit of stardust with hogg at full—back and gray in the second row. if you look at their team, apart from those two plays that i mention, the rest of the squad are all squad players. you have slade who is on the outskirts, and jack. they have a team that have been built from the local area. they really have invested in the academy, and the local plays and you compare
them to a team like saracens who have ten, 12 internationals from all around the world, and this team we have really done it with a lot of graft, some great coaching and just investing in local plays. it is remarkable what they had done. and that about the way they play and great things for them in the future. you mention england, of course, there. the six nations decider is next weekend. no warm up game for england, the actions breaking covid—19 rules, hugely disappointing. hugely disappointing and very surprising when you think of some of the plays that were involved, the likes of chris rob shaw, former captain of england, when they did not really need to, they were staying in a 5—star hotel in park lane, they signed up to a protocol, it was very important that they are abided by those protocols i get a match to go to a pub twice on two occasions and it is very sad for a
lot of reasons. a few of those plays, press going off to america to retire and play out rugby there, the young bell is coming through who never put on the barbariansjersey. disappointing for them. a lot of money lost. 0ver £1 million, desperately needed that money, the rfu, the barbarians needed the money on the public wanted to see them play. rugby tries to sort of stand on the gates of other sports and their values, i think they've let themselves down now. eddiejones, he would have had to watch all the other nations play this weekend and have not had a chance of a warm up game that they desperately need before they play against italy next weekend. a lot of lessons being learned all around. kyran, thank you for your time this morning. six nations will be very interesting.
plenty to look forward to. thank you. businesses and organisations in england have promised thousands of free meals to children following the government's decision not to extend the food vouchers scheme during the school holidays. now an online tool showing people where they can access meals in their area has been created by the food foundation. anna taylor is the charity's director and joins us now. good morning. good morning. what you make at the number of different organisations that have stepped up? i think it is overwhelming. we have worked with and organising who have mapped all this, in the last couple of days we have got more than 500 sites across the uk that are offering free meals, that includes local authorities, many who are stepping up, charities and businesses. i think it is a real reflection of the fact that the public really care about this issue,
they really want to see it solved. a lot has been made of the government cosmic decision not to extend that school meal scheme. the government says it has given a billion to councils, that is to be used as they see fit. their argument as local councils have more knowledge i can spend it on things as well as meals, do not see that as as well as meals, do not see that as a point, useful way of spending the money? 0bviously, money? obviously, to support local authorities is very important. what we see though in the scale of this problem is that it is not enough. we did a survey of schoolchildren the beginning of september, asking them about their experiences over the summer holidays and one .4 million children, they quell event of, had some sort of expense of food insecurity. they were seeing parents get meals or they were not eating as much as they would like themselves because they were worried that it was going to run out or being sent
to friends and relatives to eat because there is no feed at home. that was in the context of the voucher scheme reaching a number of children. i think we are in a situation where the scale of the challenge really wants the government looking fresh at what the policy options are and really putting in place substantial plans to tackle it. of course this campaign spearheaded by the football marcus rashford, but is not just calling by the football marcus rashford, but is notjust calling for vouchers from meals, this is part of a package of changes that he says are necessary to help children who would otherwise go hungry. talk as they what he is calling for in its entirety. he has three major request, they are directly taken from a government independent review, called the national feed strategy, published in july this year. they are recommended in that as well, he has taken that from this review. they are first of
all to extend free school meals to more children, all children that are from hassles on universal credit and equivalent benefits. that is making the scheme which a large number of children. secondly making sure that those children are also able to get meals on other days. thinking about preschool children, a scheme at the moment called healthy start, that provides vouchers for fruit, veg and milk for toddlers. provides vouchers for fruit, veg and milk fortoddlers. proposing provides vouchers for fruit, veg and milk for toddlers. proposing to expand that scheme and an increase via the voucher. it is a compressive package, essentially. sorry to interrupt. let us talk about that new online tool, you can find out where you can get local help if you need it. we are looking at it now. explain how you put this together and what help people can get from it. it is called kids meals map, you can
google it, people who are providing meals can put the details on the. it is an organic process, we are getting the information from what people are announcing and pasting online. we hope it will be a resource that families who are struggling can look in the local area and see what is available. also i think it is also important for mps to be able to look into their own constituencies to see what is happening and who is stepping up and providing food and perhaps they might want to go to talk to some of those people over the coming half term so they can really get a deeper understanding of the challenges ahead. really interesting to talk to this morning, anna, thank you for your time. anna taylor, director at the food foundation. talking about the new online tool that is available, spearheaded by marcus rushford.
it is coming up to quarter to nine. you are watching bbc news. you may remember on friday we heard from 80—year—old paul harvey — who lives with dementia. he became an internet sensation when he composed a piece of music spontaneously after his son gave him just four notes. if you have not had it, it is incredible. —— heard it. now the bbc philharmonic orchestra has recorded a version of his composition which will be heard for this first time this morning. let's remind ourselves of paul's amazing piano skills. i love the printed word, but where the printed word stops, you can't describe anything any more, music takes over.
because with music, you can do whatever you want with it in your mind. and that is how i feel about music. musicjust carries on at a higher level than the printed word. we are living in a very peculiar world at the moment and things aren't good. if it gives people pleasure or being moved is pleasure, that's great. that was lovely. the proceeds from paul's song will be donated to the organisation music for dementia — and we're joined now by the their programme director, grace meadows. good morning, thank you for talking to us this morning. i have to ask you, ona to us this morning. i have to ask you, on a personal level, how did you, on a personal level, how did you react when you first heard about paul? i was really moved by paul's sorry arejust i was really moved by paul's sorry are just hearing that again now, you
can hear so much in his music and what he says about how much music needs him. —— mark paul's story. his story and the story of many others is why ourcampaign story and the story of many others is why our campaign exists, it is why we are so keen to highlight the power of music and why we are calling for music to be part of dementia care for people living with dementia. what do we know about the impact that music can have for people who are living with dementia now? we know that through the research on the science and the lived experience that paul demonstrates, that music can really help lift depression, riches agitation and apathy, permits psychological well—being and it can support relationships and connections will help people to be in the here and now together. we know it's most impactful when it is personalised. we all have a unique relationship with music. 0ur personalised. we all have a unique relationship with music. our own musical soundtrack to our lives.
when this is tapped into as part of care, that is when we see music being so impactful. we have got lots of tools and resources on the website to help people do that. and to make music a part of the care that they provide. you are campaigning for better access to musical therapy for people living with dementia. what does that mean? what should people be getting and why is it so important? why should it be a priority? it should bea should it be a priority? it should be a priority because we do not have a clear to dementia, but as paul has movingly shown, we have music at our fingertips to enhance and enrich the quality of lights of people living with dementia. we all have the right to many folk quality—of—life and that could be no different —— we all have the right to a quality life and that should be no different for people with dementia. we are excited that we will be able to play paul's piece on our radio station tomorrow,
with the new mac we are so excited to be sharing this. what does it mean for families like polls, i know we can see the clear benefits that the poll, what is it like for why does families, moments with their relatives who may be able to remember a piece of music or play something, like paul. nick and paul have spoken about this, dementia disconnects us, it strips our ability to communicate and what music does is it bridges that gap, it brings us together into the here and now. and it collates moments of shared togetherness and thatis moments of shared togetherness and that is so important when dementia isolates and disconnects people, music brings us back together and creates this moment ofjoy that paul was talking about, that we all need now more so than ever. music for dementia are going to benefit from
paul's charity single, how much difference will that make? practically, will any extra funds do? it will help us to continue to campaign and raise awareness around him importance of music with people living with dementia. it is also the story that paul has chosen to share with us that is so important because it shone spotlight on how important music really to people living with dementia and when stories like paul plasma get told in such a beautiful way, that is when the most impactful and we know that more people need to be aware an understanding of the power of music. we can see paul, he clearly has a talent, music has been part of his life from the very start, what about people who are living with dementia perhaps do not have a similar background? perhaps do not have a similar background ? how perhaps do not have a similar background? how can families introduce music back into their lives and how powerful can that be? it can be incredibly powerful and one of the first ways families can do that is by having a musical
conversation. sitting with the person, with dementia, and finding out what music they like. that could be listening to music together and watching out for reactions, it could be going through old vinyl collections, it could be watching musical tones together. there is a whole raft of ways which you can find out what music that person loves a nd find out what music that person loves and how you can be using it and, as! loves and how you can be using it and, as i said, there are lots of tools and resources on our website, music for dementia .org .uk, where people can find out how to do this for themselves. thank you. you can listen to the first play at nine m on radio four, that is the first play of for notes. iamoff iam offto i am off to read the news on the andrew marr programme.

perhaps for was for scotland, most of them confined to the southern half of the country through the afternoon. good sunny spells in between, on the cool side with 10—14 celsius. that is latest weather. thank you. the first of this year's strictly live shows kicked off last night as the celebrities and their partners took to the dance floor for the first time. i'm sure that was nerve—racking. there was sequins, samba, and a special tribute to nhs workers. let's take a look at some of the highlights. strictly come dancing theme. # oh, when you talk like that # you make a woman go mad #. now, we have invited some very special people to be in our audience tonight — nhs front line workers. applause. # only when he's with me, i catch light # only when he gives me, makes me feel all right #. oh, i didn't see a dancer.

the most? i think i might be able to guess your answer to this.” the most? i think i might be able to guess your answer to this. i was excited by clara. i would say that because she is a colleague of mine, but i think ray, was way too harsh on her. me in her wet texting late last night. —— mark i think craig was way too harsh on her, me and her wet texting late last night. we had a text conversation and herjob, hand mission right now she says is to win him over. she well. she was fantastic, she looked amazing. there were a lot of very good people last night. very good, especially for a last night. very good, especially forafair last night. very good, especially for a fair show. tell me, who do you think struggled? here is the thing. i do thinkjacqui smith struggled, i have been there. there was a lot of sitting down.
when they make the dance about your job, they are not expecting you to stick around for ages. this is all from past experience. because it is a shorter show this year, where you might normally get a few weeks grace like i did to kind of the bad and get better, i worry that we don't have time on our side to see that from jacqui smith. from jacqui we have time on our side to see that from jacqui we have to move on to hrvy, his performance was really good. everyone was seeing maisie, expecting her to be great, she has been the biggest number one. she performed a dance that you might see in the final. but then, almost eclipsed by hrvy at the end. they
said it was the best first dance they have ever seen. he is properly going to go all the way. if maisie and hrvy are going to go the whole way, i would like to see someone like caroline in the final because i thought i was so sweet. i think the pairing be between her and johannes. there was a moment where she cried, and it was like a moment for all of us, very emotional. it is easy to 90, us, very emotional. it is easy to go, why are they crying? this whole experience, it sweeps you up and it becomes your life and i've had people say to me before, why is eve ryo he people say to me before, why is everyone getting so emotional? it is quite hard to explain, it is an all immersive experience once you are doing the show. special measures in place, social distance audience, that made it even more special as
well. even at strictly, you can tell that they have taken, they mentioned ita that they have taken, they mentioned it a lot, they have taken such measures to bring the show together. i was thinking yesterday, on a normal year, it's a lot of work. i can't even imagine how hard the crew and the cast and the choreographers on the lighting on the set dies, you have to remember all those people, they will have had to jump through hoops to bring the show to us this year. it's extra special, i think. scott mills, year. it's extra special, i think. scott m ills, lovely year. it's extra special, i think. scott mills, lovely to see you. that is all we have time for this morning. breakfast is back tomorrow from six. have a good day. bye— bye.
