9:30 pm
these are some of the main story is here in the bbc newsroom. president trump has signed an executive orders which reverse blocks on two major oil pipelines in the us. we will build our own pipeline. we will build our own pipeline. we will build our own eggs. that is what it has to do with. like we used to in the old days. his choice of us ambassador to the un has been approved. we will talk to barbara platt asher about that live at the state department in a couple of moments. the supreme court has ruled that the uk parliament, not the government, should be responsible for triggering the brexit process. we will get more on that from the bbc news up right now. we are also going to talk about the latest talks on the syria conflict. we are in kazakhstan. there has been a new resolution on how to maintain the current national ceasefire. in its board, we look at allegations from one of uk cycling's biggest stories
9:31 pm
that this was a sport run by men for men. we will put up some copy cat has come into the bbc newsroom and show this. it concerns the us senate foreign relations committee. there is no copy to show you. what i was going to say was that the south carolina governor, nicky healy, has received approval from the relevant committee to be donald trump's ambassador to the united nations. confirmation in the full senate should follow. nicky healy was overwhelmingly approved. it has to be said it has been a less easy ride for rex tillerson, nominee for secretary of state. all the democrats considering his nomination voted against the appointment. it
9:32 pm
still went through. let's go live to the state department. for those getting to know nicky healy for the first time, give us an introduction. well, she is the daughter of indian immigrants. she is one of the few people of colour and, frankly, women in mrtrump's cabinet. people of colour and, frankly, women in mr trump's cabinet. she is governor of south carolina and a rising star in the republican party. she did not support mr trump in the primaries and she criticised him because of his inflammatory statements, but even so, he chose her to be ambassador to the un. although there were concerns, or questions, about her lack of diplomatic experience, i think many senators felt she handled herself professionally. she came well—prepared to the committee and had a sense of humour. it is a high—profilejob, had a sense of humour. it is a high—profile job, perhaps more had a sense of humour. it is a high—profilejob, perhaps more so thanit high—profilejob, perhaps more so than it would have been ten or 15 yea rs than it would have been ten or 15 years ago. well, yes, for a number
9:33 pm
of reasons. is a question how mr trump will approach the united nations, because he has been somewhat dismissive in his comments about it in the few comments he has made. he will approach it like he approaches other things, are americans getting value for money, which has raised eyebrows at the yen because the us that's a lot of money in. the other thing is the open fight on the security council between russia and china on the one hand and western states on the other, especially on syria. there is a question of weather miss healy will be able to cope with that. the democratic senators who wondered about that were pleased with tough line on russia. she was willing to call russian bombing of alaba warm war crimes which rex tillerson would not do. the top democratic senator went so far as to say he felt she would be willing and able to speak truth to power, including two mr trump as well as to russia and china on the security council. we were
9:34 pm
reporting on these new settlements that israel is good to build. two and half thousand new homes. i'm interested to hear what you have been hearing on that issue at the state department. i would be interested to know what the white house is thinking because the spokesman, john spicer, was asked about that and he didn't really a nswer about that and he didn't really answer directly. he talked about how much the us wants to be a close ally of israel but said in terms of expansion of settlements, mr trump would talk with that about this with mr netanyahu when he comes off his visit in factory. that leaves us wondering could it be possible that the settlement policy will change? the settlement policy has been that it is illegitimate and it is an obstacle it is illegitimate and it is an o bsta cle to it is illegitimate and it is an obstacle to peace. that is what barack obama kept hammering home. that is what we kept hearing in this building again and again when new housing settlements were announced. today we could not get any comment from officials here. we have to see what actually transpires. mr trump
9:35 pm
has signalled he could be more tolera nt of has signalled he could be more tolerant of the settlement building, not least because his appointment for his choice for ambassador is very pro—settlement. he also signalled he wants to broker a peace deal and, presumably, he signalled he wants to broker a peace dealand, presumably, he would signalled he wants to broker a peace deal and, presumably, he would also have to take into account the palestinian position. we will have to wait until palestinian position. we will have to wait untier palestinian position. we will have to wait until mr netanyahu visits to getan to wait until mr netanyahu visits to get an answer. i am curious to hear about your impressions about how things have changed with the obama administration leaving and the trump administration coming in. can you tell the difference in how people are working? it is hard to answer that question because things are in limbo here. we don't have the secretary of state, we don't know who his senior staff will be, which is important to know. we don't have daily briefings, we don't know what the state department position is on things because it is not being formulated. what we are getting is out of the white house and mr spicer to was saying he would pass on
9:36 pm
foreign policy questions saying we don't have our secretary of state. he accused the democrats of delaying full senate vote on some of these candidates, saying they were stolen. in fact, the democrats are delaying the vote. they say it is because they want a full floor debate on some of these controversial candidates, even though they will probably still get confirmed. those of you watching every day on outside source for the foreseeable future, we will update you on all the developments concerning the trump presidency with the help of our team in america. if you want to catch up with all the developments on the trump presidency, outside source will be a good way to did. let's from washington to kazakhstan. day two of the syria peace talks have come to an end. we appear to have a new deal on how the current ceasefire in syria is being
9:37 pm
enforced. this is what we heard earlier. there has been a declaration by three of the most powerful players in syria, russia, turkey and iran. they have committed themselves to working together. not just working together, but setting up just working together, but setting upa kind just working together, but setting up a kind of a monitoring mechanism to ensure that a three—week—old ceasefire in syria sticks this time. that is significant, because two ceasefi res last that is significant, because two ceasefires last year broke down because there was an engagement by the outside powers and there wasn't a way to actually observe and to supervise the ceasefire. this is a step forward. but, this is serious, so step forward. but, this is serious, so it is still tough. the opposition said the sceptical. they don't want iran to be part of this process. they blame iran iranian backed militias for violating the ceasefire and are still not sure if the mechanism will work. the success of these talks will become clearer in these talks will become clearer in the weeks to come. where does
9:38 pm
president assad fit into the equation? president assad, the symbol of love president assad has been the main point in the syrian warm since it began. the scene throughout the past nearly six yea rs, throughout the past nearly six years, that his fate has mattered more than the fate of 22 million people. it comes up every time there are talks or a suggestion of talks. his supporters say his fate cannot be decided in a negotiating process like this, it can only be decided in elections by the syrian people. the opposition and their backers say that unless he steps down this will continue to be a factor fuelling the warm in syria. what has happened here is they have focused on just one thing, on the ceasefire. you cannot do anything, you cannot move forward on humanitarian aid or political discussions, creating political discussions, creating political space, until the guns fall silent and at least a large part of
9:39 pm
syria is at peace. there must be ci’oss syria is at peace. there must be cross then for them to move onto more difficult dishes. that is happening now. these talks might lead back to the un mediated talks in geneva next month where political representatives of the government and opposition sides will meet again. let's see what happens. there isa again. let's see what happens. there is a little bit more open now. still in love lies ahead. a little more hope is better than none. few journalists follow the syria conflict so closely. let's begin the sport by talking about cycling. the parliamentary enquiry into the rain in british sport has been hearing some damning evidence today. it has come from one of the biggest cycling stars, the former olympic and world champion nicole cooke. she is claiming that british cycling was a sport is run by men, for men and that anti—doping efforts were not
9:40 pm
working. she also said she is sceptical of sticking —— team sky's drug free credentials. that is when an rfid can request to take a banned substance for medical reasons. she said, taking the easyjust before a major event raises questions for me. wiggins was granted three exemptions to ta ke wiggins was granted three exemptions to take an anti—inflammatory drug between 2011 and 2013. let's talk through this story with the help of ollie foster. he is life in the bbc sports editor. she didn't pull punches, did she? she certainly didn't. very strong words from macaulay cup. it is a massive enquiry. the title of this enquiry from the parliamentary select committee is combating doping in sport. lord coe has appeared before this committee. they want him to give more evidence, but it is cycling on which they were analysing the evidence from the conflict. it
9:41 pm
is about those exemptions, the evidence given by sir david b ra ilsfo rd evidence given by sir david brailsford who is in charge of the british cycling team just before christmas. it was about the package delivered to the team around bradley wiggins, one of his races in fronts and, one of the hand grenades she threw today was saying can we really trust team sky after all that evidence which would she really wa nted evidence which would she really wanted to town because she has accused the uci, the world governing body of cycling of being sexist. she also accused british cycling of being sexist. she said uk anti—doping, she had no faith in the system, it was the wrong people with the wrong tools who were trying to eradicate doping and all the testing. there has been some response to what the cocoa had to say to that parliament committee. uk sport saying, she had a go at them as well, they did not take it seriously at all. only governing bodies such as british cycling to
9:42 pm
come. they said they'd take the responsibilities very seriously as an investor of public funds. uk anti—doping says it welcomes this debate and the enquiry has sparked it, highlighting the challenges it faces. british cycling has pointed to the increased participation in women's cycling and the great result they have had in women's cycling. nicole cooke is not a printer punches. it really has sparked this to be even more. it is a massive enquiry and this will go on and on. thank you for that. there is more on the bbc sport website. here is a treat from andrew benson saying it has been coming, but this is a truly defining moment in the history of one of the words biggest sports. what andrew is talking about is, formula 1 is a new chief executive. he is called chase carey. we talked about the fact he would be replacing
9:43 pm
this month, bernie ecclestone, who ran the sport for a0 years. today, mr chase announced the sport needs to be changed fundamentally. here he is sitting down with bbc sport editor dan rowan. bernie is a one—man team, it is not an organisation capable, the red organisation capable, the red organisation for a two—day's word to follow through and build relationships, both the opportunities for us. on this port side, the decision—making has not been as effective as it needs to be. i think some of the organisation that has been put up to guide the sport, if not work as planned. it is a great sport, but clearly it can be improved. i think we do plan to improved. i think we do plan to improve it. it needs a fresh start.
9:44 pm
i don't know whether the decision—making is not what it should be because there is too much history amongst the players. one of the benefits we bring is a fresh start. we don't have an agenda other than to make the support group for its fans. if you are into snowmobiles you will appreciate it is widely considered to be the holy grail of tricks. have a look at this swedish writer. that is daniel bowden becoming the first person to ever complete a double backflip on a snowmobile. it is as dangerous as it looks. this sport will feature in the upcoming winter x games in aspen, colorado. there is a good slow motion video. you can see as the landseer, he came very close to not completing this trip. he leans over and over on his left hand side then, just at the
9:45 pm
last minute manages to get it and became a very happy man. there he is. 0h became a very happy man. there he is. oh my god. everything, my became a very happy man. there he is. oh my god. everything, my whole life was going through my mind. my whole life. i still haven't realised that i needed. i am the first in order to do a double backflip on a stone will be that weighs almost £500. i promised my girlfriend i would never do it again, but who knows. now, in a few minutes we will be live in los angeles to cast our eyes over the oscar nominations. though surprised to see la la land doing very well. 1a nominations for the musical. meryl streep has been making academy history. we will tell you how. let's bring you more now on the ruling from the supreme court that the uk parliament must vote
9:46 pm
before the government can sort the brexit process. the bbc understands a bill to trigger article 50 and get negotiations underway will be introduced to mps on thursday with the hope it could be passed by the house of commons in a fortnight. what do voters make of this ruling? here is danny savage. when it came to the decision on whether to leave the eu or stay, leeds voted to remain, but only just. months later, what do the a9.7% who voted to leave think now that the issue is going back to parliament? we voted to get out, so why can't we get out? it's simple. we vote for the prime minister come in, the prime minister comes in. we vote to leave, and they stall and stall. it's wrong. a lot of countries want to do business with england, trump for starters. we don't like the guy, but that's not the point. let's get back for us. never mind other people,
9:47 pm
let's get this country going again. but remember, the majority in this city voted to stay and many haven't changed their mind. shamal is from iraq and thinks europe should stick together. i don't know what is going to happen. would you rather they stopped brexit now and kept in europe? yeah. i was totally opposed to brexit and i voted against leaving the eu. at a nearby butcher's, jim believes things would be different if we'd known then what we know now. i know people who voted for brexit who didn't understand the circumstances and consequences of what we were voting for. i think before the referendum, we were not totally told what it implied with brexit and what it means to stay in the eu or to leave. do you wish brexit would just go away? if i could turn the clock back 12
9:48 pm
months and start all over again, i think the lead—up to the referendum should be different. broadly speaking, those who voted for brexitjust want the government to get on with it, unhindered. those who didn't are still against it, but see it as inevitable. danny savage, bbc news, leeds. this is outside source, live in the bbc newsroom. our lead story concerns donald trump. he signed executive to be lodged to controversial oil pipelines. the same projects were rejected by barack obama same projects were rejected by ba rack obama after years same projects were rejected by barack obama after years of campaigning by environmentalists. let's quickly show you what is coming up after outside source. outside the uk it is world news america. there is a report from china which is looking at ways in which beijing can respond to a
9:49 pm
potential trade war with the us. here in the uk, the news at ten is next. this week marks 60 years since the uprising in egypt ousted whose name. we do get the money eventually replaced. i am often saying if you have any questions on this is recovered you can still. federico is walking —— watching in the republic of ireland and he asked what our presidential executive orders, what powers to begin donald trump is a limit on the us? these are legally binding documents, instructions to government departments and how they behave in certain policy areas. a presidential executive order cannot reverse a law that has been passed by congress, but it can be used to overturn previous executive orders passed by presidents beforehand. donald trump can overturn a presidential executive order by
9:50 pm
barack obama. if that helps. i'm questions, get in touch. let's talk about the oscar nominations. no surprise that la la land is in pole position. it has 1a nominations. as a record for one film. it ties in with titanic and all about eve. this isa with titanic and all about eve. this is a musical. two leads, ryan gosling and emma stone, are both up for best actor and best actress respectively. the director is also nominated. here is some of the trailerfor nominated. here is some of the trailer for the nominated. here is some of the trailerfor the film. nominated. here is some of the trailer for the film. it is conflict and it is very exciting. now, do you remember there was
9:51 pm
controversy last year about the lack of adversity among oscar winners. this year the nominees are certainly not so white. moonlight looks at gay black culture. it has received eight nominations. its director is terry jenkins. if he were to win he would be the first black director to receive the award. let's bring in peter pozen. here is some of the trailer of the film first. remember the last time i saw you? you are my only, i am your only. listen. so who? to you ? only, i am your only. listen. so who? to you? that speak to peter. those controversies around a lack of diversity 12 months ago still feel pretty fresh, how far have the
9:52 pm
oscars shifted? well, if you look at the nominations, it appears they shifted a long way. the nominations are the most racially diverse they have been for a couple of decades. the big question is these movies, these funds were being made at this time last year. some of them have beenin time last year. some of them have been in production for several yea rs. been in production for several years. maybe it is a bit of a stretch to say changes made at the academy less than 12 months ago have affected significantly the nominees this year. it may have affected in terms of the thinking of the oscar voters, looking at the array of films and actors and actresses that they could have voted for. it is difficult to say precisely how much ofan difficult to say precisely how much of an effect controversy last year had. we will know if we look longer term, if there are racially diverse nominees for years to come, what we might think things are changing. nominees for years to come, what we might think things are changinglj wa nt might think things are changing.” wa nt to might think things are changing.” want to talk about meryl streep. it isn't just la la
9:53 pm
want to talk about meryl streep. it isn'tjust la la land making history. here is what i was good to tell you about. donald trump said she was overrated. she is now the first person to receive for the acting nominees. she has won three oscars. the first was in 1979. this year she is nominated for her performance in the biopic of florence fosterjenkins. tell us about the performance.” florence fosterjenkins. tell us about the performance. i have seen it. it is a great performance. she plays an opera singer who is tone deaf, who cannot sing. it is a true story and it is very difficult to go on camera and act as if you can't sing. she pulls it off extremely well. it is a very entertaining film. yes, as you said, she now has 20 oscar nominations to her name is breaking the record which was set by meryl streep when she had banking nominations. she is way ahead of any other actor or actress. that is why she is often described, especially
9:54 pm
here in los angeles, as the greatest living actor. tell us when the big ideas. the big night is toward the end of next month. there are about five weeks of campaigning to go. that is what it is all about. for the studios, for the actors as well, there is a certain amount of active campaigning, appearing infront there is a certain amount of active campaigning, appearing in front of audiences, talking about their role, trying to cajole and perhaps influence the oscar voters to win the ultimate prize in show business. it is extremely important of his actors and directors. thank you very much indeed. we ain't in los angeles. we started in washington, we have been to kazakhstan. i will see you at the same time tomorrow. how has the winter been for you so far? mind for the most part. if you
9:55 pm
could spells with fog and frost, but not much rain. that theme extends back to the autumn. this chart shows rainfall for autumn. the brown colours indicating below average rain. most of the uk had a dry autumn. that has continued into the early pa rt autumn. that has continued into the early part of the winter. the majority of the uk coloured brown, with the few exceptions. and it remains mostly try through january. that is because the jet stream which tends to carry our rain bearing on weather fronts has been deflected this winter away from our shores. in its place, high pressure has been the dominant force through the last few weeks. it is still there underneath the area of high pressure with light winds. that has allowed fogarty form in recent weeks, lingering into the day. that is the case again. freezing fog with the possibility of disruption across southern and eastern parts of the uk where the wind is lightest. the fog lifting the cloud. not so much
9:56 pm
sunshine as we saw on tuesday. it will feel cold. the best sunshine further north and west. it will feel distinctly chilly across southern and eastern areas. on tuesday some places reached 10 degrees. three or four might be best on offer on wednesday afternoon with perhaps the odd light snow flurry. the best sunshine across england and wales will be north and west. for scotland and northern ireland, cloudy but milder. nine or 10 degrees with patchy rain, especially across the far north—west of scotland. as we hit into thursday, we will draw air in around the high—pressure from a cold sores indeed. the part of europe which has been freezing for some days now. this air is going to have a rain bite by the time it reaches our shores on thursday. it was the really quite raw in that wind. the snow flurry of a lot of dry weather. the main theme will be the chill. temperatures in some places across central and eastern parts of the uk will struggle to get
9:57 pm
above freezing. if the ad on the wind then it will be colder than that, despite the fact many others will see some sunshine. into friday, still pretty chilly in the wind. especially across britain and eastern areas. milder south and west. a bit of patchy rain around, though no greater months. as we go into the weekend, weather fronts will try to stagger in off the atlantic. the timing of these features and the position of the really difficult to nail down. do not take the position of these globs of blue literally. there will be some rain this weekend and, on balance, it will start to turn milder as well. some places getting into double figures on wednesday. there could be patchy rain making its way across eastern areas. still a lot of dry weather. the winner will be light. which is higher than they have been recently. looking further ahead as we enter the month, we are going to see the jet stream try to wake up, try to push weather
9:58 pm
systems in of the atlantic but they have been trying to do that for some days now. the computer models have been premature in spreading rain across the country. this comes with across the country. this comes with a bit ofa across the country. this comes with a bit of a health warning. if the jet succeeds through the early part of february we will see raina, but if it continues to be blocked and there is some chance it will be, thenit there is some chance it will be, then it will remain dry with frost and fog. big questions. we will update you again tomorrow. tonight at ten — a parliamentary bill is expected within days, leading to the formal start of the brexit process. it follows a ruling by the supreme court that parliament must be consulted before brexit can start, it's not down to ministers alone. any change to the law, to give effect to the referendum, must be made in the only way permitted, by the uk constitution, namely by an act of parliament. within minutes of the ruling by the court, ministers
9:59 pm
were insisting that the brexit plan would go ahead on the original timetable. this judgment does not change the fact that the uk will be leaving the european union, and it's ourjob to deliver on the instruction the people of the uk have given us. but labour has warned it would try to amend the bill, as it goes through parliament.
