from london irish to beat them 33—31 at welford road. this try from jasper wiese sealed what was a thrilling win after london irish had threatened an upset. back to qatar, as we draw closer to that crunch match between england and wales in their final group match on tuesday. wales have it all to do after a disappointing tournament so far they've picked up just one point from their first two matches. our correspondent hywel griffith reports from doha. trained under the desert sun, wales's loss to iran on friday left them listless and looking like their world cup was already at an end. for the players it wasn'tjust a red defeat, it was the feeling that they had failed to show the world what they are capable of. irate had failed to show the world what they are capable of.— they are capable of. we didn't achieve that _ they are capable of. we didn't achieve that and _ they are capable of. we didn't achieve that and that - they are capable of. we didn't achieve that and that was - they are capable of. we didn't - achieve that and that was probably the most disappointing thing, the

7:41 pm
any was needed, for a game in which they have to give their all. england are virtually guaranteed a place in the last 16 despite a disappointing 0—0 draw with the usa on friday, but marcus rashford insists they're ready to return to their winning ways. as players we always want to play our best football, but it's not possible. you can't always play, you play your best football, and you have to learn to win games when you are not playing well, because it's unrealistic to think that you are going to play, you're going to be the best team all the best individual on a pitch every single game. you know, we obviously are not happy with the way that we performed in the last game, we know we can do better, but at the same time we are in a strong position in the group.
7:42 pm
it's not often that teams win all three games in group games, so if we manage to beat wales, which we will be looking to do, then it can be considered as a good start. you will have to wait — considered as a good start. you will have to wait for _ considered as a good start. you will have to wait for tuesday _ considered as a good start. you will have to wait for tuesday for - considered as a good start. you will have to wait for tuesday for that . have to wait for tuesday for that one, but spain — germany considering one, but spain — germany considering on bbc one, just approaching half—time, still goalless. a goal ruled out for offside from germany. germany in desperate need of a win, they sit bottom of the group again after the defeat to japan. this is a four—time champion in germany at this world cup. plenty still to come in the second half. that one on bbc one, and on the bbc sport website. that is all from sportsday. much more throughout the evening, buy from me.

welcome to— the national robotarium. i believe you came i to see some robots. we. ..got. . . robots. now, this is our kind of place! just opened at heriot—watt university in edinburgh, the national robotarium is a research centre for scientists, to take the latest robotics and explore the best ways they can be used in industry as well as all walks of life.
7:44 pm
one of the aims of the national robotarium is to try and work out what work works for humans and what work doesn't work for humans, and therefore the robots should do that work instead. that's what they're trying to work out. what? well, if you didn't understand what that was about, maybe the robots could explain it better. what sort of research goes on here? research about human robot interaction, - artificial intelligence and trustworthy - autonomous systems. are they going to do weird experiments on us? no, this is a kind of place where they work with industry to explore robotics in society and in the workplace. great. i love field trips. i feel excited. well, don't we all? one of the superstars of the robot world in general is spot — boston dynamics�* flagship all—terrain dog—o—pod. out of the box, spot comes with lots of simple—sounding but really actually

very complicated ability. that's my favourite. that's the bit i love — the side—to—side. spencer laughs. it can walk, balance, and it has lots of built—in safety features. and then it's up to researchers like rahul to try and customise it for new applications. we are looking at using this in construction sectors, especially getting them to walk around in confined spaces like in the nuclear decommission sites. one of the things that we are doing right now is adding some custom sensors, like 3d laser scanners, generating a 3d map of a construction site. what it's doing right now is using the manipulator arm to semi—autonomously pick up a bottle. rahul has programmed in the idea of the bottle, the image of the bottle, and then spot is going and picking it up on its own. and it's done a good job. good boy!
