i think that is exactly what most of us in the uk thought. went to incredible lengths for over a decade, turning around this girls school in western that is that the fda's way of doing things, india. textbooks were they are doing it as quickly translated into the local as is right for them and the uk language. qr codes were process has been able in these special circumstances inserted stop to open up a to move more rapidly. world —— world of poems, lectures and stories. school attendance among the surrounding tribal community rose from 2% to 100%. 85% not because of brexit, not because we're out achieved a grades in recent of the eu, but simply because of the particular exams. his teachings have circumstances that we face now. impacted life beyond the and i think that this classroom. teenage marriage in the village. densification in the village. densification in the drought prone district has been reduced. he has even built pandemic has amplified a science lab at home to share experiments with students in over 80 countries. he also has our washington correspondent is young people talking between live in washington. doctorfelt countries in conflict with one another and he has shared his tech skills with other teachers she was critical when he was as well. in accepting the contrasting the uk and the us, suggesting that the uk was not million dollar prize, he also
1:05 am
made this extraordinary and far—reaching pledge. made this extraordinary and far-reaching pledge. 5096 of the prize money will be equally as rigourous about his he was critical but, remember, you have also had cdf governor —— shared with the rest of the top ten finalists. together, we can governor secretary in the uk saying that the uk scientists make a difference and make this are the best in the world, world a better place. that is better than belgium, better than france and better than the united states so i think the surprise was that doctor over $50,000 for each of the other nine finalists including anthony fauci got involved in teachers from brazil, south that back and forth and there korea and nigeria. this year's we re that back and forth and there were concerns raised that this prize has also come at a time kind of vaccine nationalism, this we are better than you we when lockdowns have reminded us are first back—and—forth is damaging when it comes to trust how important the inspiring and face—to—face role that teachers carry out really is. and that in the vaccine. certainly here in the vaccine. certainly here in the us, around 60% of people now say they would take a is it. coronavirus vaccine and that is up coronavirus vaccine and that is up from what it was in september. it is still short of the 70% we need to create herd hello there. the weather is giving us immunity and at less than 40% of people want to be first. a real taste of winter. there is still a hesitancy around that. so i think what
1:06 am
doctor fauci has done is try to repair the damage and say, look, we have different ways of doing this but we are all going some places have seen snow there is more in the forecast in the right direction. stay for friday for the real mix for rain, sleet and snow falling from the sky, there for a second for us. it will be cold, president—electjoe biden says it will be windy. he will ask americans to wear and this big area of low pressure is really dominating facemasks for his first 100 the weather across western europe. daysin facemasks for his first 100 days in office to limit the bands of wet weather spiralling around. spread of coronavirus. mr biden pretty cold air being sucked down from the north. that combination of cold air and wet weather, also said he would order masks that is why we are still seeing sleet and snow. to be worn on all us government across scotland, snow falling buildings and on public for a time to quite low levels, could be a brief transport. my inclination, covering of snow through the central belt. and over high ground ten because on the first day i am to 20 cm is possible. could be real travel problems inaugurated, is to say that i for the high level routes, will ask the public for 100 especially with ice in western scotland. ice possible in northern ireland as well as actually days to mask. just 100 days to start but mainly dry. some showers for wales mask. not for ever, 100 days. in the southwest. this band of rain could contain some sleet and wet snow over and i think we will see a high ground across some parts of eastern england. significant reduction if that these various bands of wet occurs with vaccinations and weather will just continue to circulate around our masking to drag down the area of low pressure. numbers considerably. back now most of the snow becoming confined to the highest ground. rain at lower levels. to our reporter. a bold a lot of rain piling into eastern scotland,
1:07 am
could cause one or two problems. something a little bit brighter towards the south. it will be windy with statement, considering how gusts around the coast. divisive masks have become in the united states. it is a particularly out west the 50 mph or more and it will be cold. highs between four and seven degrees. totally different approach from the current administration, we will see further areas isn't it? it very different of wet weather with some sleet and snow mixed in over from donald trump ‘s approach the hills as we go to wearing a mask, certainly. through friday night. but the weekend is a story but it is in line with whatjoe of things very, very slowly calming down. biden has been saying, which is it will stay drier but cold. that when he is president, or if he became president, he would follow the science and what the scientific community told him to do. and we had a warning yesterday from the head on saturday there will be showers around which of the cdc, the top health regulatory body here in the us could again contain sleet and snow over high ground particularly over the scottish mountains. more dry weather developing saying that we are in for a through the day. some spells of sunshine. it still can be chilly really terrible winter and that with temperatures of five or six or seven many really terrible winter and that any really terrible winter and that many many more people could degrees without the winds die. but if people wear a mask will fall a little later. it could massively mitigate those winds will continue that. so i think what we are to fall during saturday night and mist and fog around which could be quite seeing isjoe slow to clear. that. so i think what we are seeing is joe biden that. so i think what we are seeing isjoe biden setting out it stays dull in some places. how he plans to approach the many spots will see sunshine just a few showers by this stage. still feeling cold with coronavirus and doctor fauci
1:08 am
will be his chief medical advisor as well so setting out how he means to go on their. an highs of 4—7 degrees. overall, grim numbers coming out of the us. certainly. but also worldwide, grim numbers. we have more than 1.5 million people around the globe who have died from coronavirus. 20% of those, just under 20% of those are in the united states. soi those are in the united states. so i suppose that is why it is so i suppose that is why it is so important that everywhere around the world there is faith in vaccine effort and the effo rts in vaccine effort and the efforts of government to keep people safe and control the virus as well. let's get some of the days of the news now. talks between european and british negotiators are going on late into the night again. this was food arriving a little earlier. urgent compromises are being sought in key areas including fishing rights and competition rules. it is

days, close to 1000 californians have lost their lives due to covid—19. californians have lost their lives due to covid-19. our los angeles correspondent has more on the stay—at—home measures. we heard gavin use them there set out those grim figures and why he has to take this decisive action. what is stopped short of earlier today was imposing a state wide lockdown which some people had been anticipating. what he has done is put in place regional stay—at—home orders in places where intensive—care stay—at—home orders in places where intensive—ca re units stay—at—home orders in places where intensive—care units are more than 85% full. so there is some limited relief, perhaps, although not a state wide lockdown but people really resigned to the fact that this must take place. those figures are grim and the fear here is that they will only get worse. it was thanksgiving here last week in the united states, one of the most important holidays of the most important holidays of the most important holidays of the year in those figures,
1:12 am
those hospital admissions don't let —— get reflect the travel and the gatherings that took place one week ago. we expect to see the impact of those this coming weekend. we have been speaking to some people out and about in los angeles today and there was an emergency order here with immediate effect last night put in place by the mayor. most people we spoke to we re mayor. most people we spoke to were alarmed about that last night it was a 12 page order with a lot of detail and when you look at the first few pages it showed that perhaps you are unable to leave your house on foot, by car or on public transport. when you look at the list of exceptions it is not quite as severe but people say they understand the reasons why these restrictions are in place. they do not welcome them. something they are necessary other think they are over the top but even those who thought it was necessary were out and about walking their dogs and with the children so not everyone is staying at home when perhaps they could. warner brothers has announced that
1:13 am
because of the coronavirus pandemic its entire output for next year will play on a streaming service for one month at the same time that it is released in cinemas. hollywood is struggling with the collapse of film distribution in the united states. let's get more on this and talk to a senior editor with the hollywood reporter. thank you for coming on the programme. so we have films that will be released on streaming services at the same time as when they are in cinemas. people can watch them at home rather than go to the cinema. sounds like bad news for cinemas. warner brothers is spinning this out. it will be positive for theatres because it is delaying movies. instead of delaying movies we will have them out. the problem is that it will be at home. cedars are not happy about this. the cal of the chain here in the united states put out a statement
1:14 am
saying that they are going to be having stern discussions with warner brothers about this. it is very bad news for theatres. and what about the streaming service that will be the beneficiary? essentially, hbo max is a subsidiarity of warner media and so warner media is saying we will give up potential billions in box office and put that into a streaming service it is worth it. that is something that disney has seen success with. disney has seen success with. disney is a company that has, on paper, lost a lot of money this year through its state —— closed theme parks and no movies in theatres but stock is up movies in theatres but stock is up because investors believe there streaming service is the future. and so the hope is that warner media will do the same thing. and every time we talk about a streaming service that comes up about a streaming service that comes up in the news in some
1:15 am
way, hbo max today and disney plus recently, we always compare it to netflix. we also then say when do we get to saturation? how many of these set box streaming services do we have to sign up to? it is interesting because you asked me one month ago if hbo max was a streaming service, the answer was no. now, it is in the game and for the number of movies that are going there, you would never have seen that before. it is astounding. i might get to see is astounding. i might get to see the matrix four and home in june. the suicide squad as well. and that sort of thing would never debut on a screen —— streaming service before. and it is expensive for the company but that is how they are going. great to have you on. stay with us here on bbc

medical advisor. we crossed to andrewjoseph in boston. thank you for coming on the programme. thank you for having me. what you make of doctor anthony fauci's comments questioning the speed with which britain has approved this vaccine? that has approved this vaccine? that has been a lot of pressure i think on us officials to try to get a vaccine to people and so maybe it was partly because of that and maybe it was to defend the fda process because i think wa nts the fda process because i think wants the uk regulators made the move there was some questions why the fda hasn't authorised the vaccine as well. it might have been to just sort of emphasise that the us regulatory process is really rigourous but in turn you question what the uk authorities have done. you have any questions given that about the uk process? these are the
1:19 am
same vaccines that will probably be within weeks authorised in the us. i think what doctor fauci eventually realised was to criticise authorisation of that vaccine was maybe to question the vaccine itself, which he doesn't want to do. all accou nts doesn't want to do. all 00:19:13,937 --> 4294966103:13:29,430 accounts these vaccines
