6:16 am
early on, heavy showers around with some hail and bunder mixed in. drifting east through the day in two parts of wales the midlands east anglia. further north, scattering of showers across scotland and northern ireland. sunshine between a showers, temperatures getting into the middle teams. some dry and brighter spells, through the afternoon, top temperatures in the upper teens and low 20s. those showers moving through, could be quite heavy with the odd rumble of thunder. a mixed bag. the council some rain at the world championship athletics. but the day will be more dry and wet. top temperatures, 18— 19 degrees. the evening, showers fading away. high pressure building in. a weather front coming in from the west, but as sky is clear, turning chilly. hanging on to double figures away
6:17 am
from the north of scotland. the north of scotland, temperatures are lowest. single figures for many areas. we could see some early—morning frost. a chilly start, but a bright start for many. cloud increasing in the north and west. rain pushing through northern ireland, into western england and parts of wales. the further south and east, fine and dry. temperatures getting up to similar values to today, probably feeling a bit warmer. 21— 22 degrees. for the community shield cup, a pretty decent day. mostly dry with some sunshine, temperatures 21— 22. now it's time for the film review with jane hill andjames king. hello and welcome to the film review on bbc news.
6:18 am
to take us through this week's cinema releases is james king. hello again. hi. what a funny old week! it certainly is a funny week. we have valerian and the city of a thousand planets, a mega budget sci—fi from luc besson starring dane dehaan and cara delevingne. england is mine takes a look at the early years of manchester's answer to oscar wilde, smiths front man morrissey. and to quote the man himself, panic on the streets of london, panic on the streets of birmingham. yes, the emoji movie has been let loose onto an unsuspecting british public. be afraid! 0h, lord! let's start with sci—fi. that is an odd week! it is august, people! i read that valerian is possibly the most expensive french film ever?
6:19 am
most expensive european film of all time. actually, 20 years ago, there was a film called the fifth element which luc besson, the same director, had made which did well. at that point, that was the most expensive european film of all time. now it is valerian, with a budget of $200 million, which could not buy neymar, but it is still a lot of money. it is set in the 28th century. it is about a couple of intergalactic secret agents who are investigating strange goings—on at the alpha space station. cara delevingne and dane dehaan star. let's see. 0k. what's the shortest way there? north—north—east, 113 degrees. 60, 70, 80, 90. that leads me straight into a wall. you said you wanted the shortest way. wow. would i be right in saying
6:20 am
you can see the money? well, yeah! you can see the money. but watching it, ijust thought how much has changed in the 20 years since the fifth element. the sci—fi and space movies we have had from people like christopher nolan and jj abrahams with his star trek and star wars movies, and alfonso cuaron and actually, valerian looks expensive, but it looks like an expensive 90s movie. i don't think it looks as elegant and as chic and certainly not as cerebral as the more recent
6:21 am
science fiction films we have seen. it actually looks a bit gaudy. we saw it towards the end of that clip. it looks quite gaudy and camp and dare i say it, quite silly at times. you are allowed to say that! 20 years ago, there was a silliness about the fifth element, but perhaps we were more forgiving. but a lot has changed in that 20 years, so now i am not so sure that luc besson's style, and he does have a very distinctive style, feels so of the moment as it did then. and what do you make of cara delevingne? the big question. everyone wants to know that. well, she's clearly very comfortable in front of a screen. she is arguably the world's most famous model, so she looks completely at home. is she, on the evidence of this movie, the new meryl streep? i don't think so. however, she's very young and there is plenty of time for her to improve. i think the leads are not the most charismatic. if you see the trailer, you will see rihanna in the trailer a lot.
6:22 am
rihanna is not in the movie that much. that is a bit of a cheat on the part of the marketing. i would have liked to have seen her in it more and ethan hawke in it more. they are very much supporting characters. if itjust looked really good, cool, i would have forgiven it these problems. all right. we couldn't have anything more different for our second film, england is mine. this is a biopic of morrissey‘s early years in the run up to him meeting johnny marr and forming the smiths. the title is from a smiths song, still ill. it stars jack lowden, who is in dunkirk as well. you might have seen him in dunkirk. he plays an raf pilot. he is tom hardy's colleague in that movie. very good in dunkirk and very good in this as a young morrissey. the downside is that the first half of
6:23 am
the film, morrissey is so painfully shy as a teenager that he is virtually mute. so you have a film where you really don't know what is going on in his head because he is such an insular character. and the film really is about him coming out of his shell. most interestingly, the women in his life encouraging him to come out of his shell, his family and female friends. do you need to be a fan of the smiths to enjoy it or could this be a coming—of—age film? that is certainly what it's trying to be. there are adrian mole—esque elements of it with the nerdy, shy teenager, but also about if you follow your dreams, then they will come true, which perhaps isn't immediately what you think of when thinking of morrissey, but it is there in the movie. the second half is better. that is when he does come out of his shell and becomes more flamboyant. that's when he becomes more interesting. 0k. it's august, children are not at school. you take them to the cinema a lot. even watching the trailerfor the emoji
6:24 am
movie made my eyes hurt. do you think morrissey has ever used an emo" signed off a text with a smiley face? i doubt it, somehow. yeah. in terms of plot, the emoji movie is very convoluted. is there a plot? you can sum it up very simply. it is trying to be the lego movie, desperately, which was a couple of years ago and a huge success critically and commercially. it is about this emoji living in a phone in this emoji city which is very uniform and regimented, but he is different. he wants to prove he is different to everyone else and special and doesn't follow the herd. there is actually a ‘meh‘ face. do you know what a ‘meh‘ face is? indifferent, the feeling i had when coming out of valerian. so he is a meh face, but he wants to be more than that. in this clip, we have, i can't believe i am saying this, sir patrick stewart voicing a poop emoji... i can't believe it either! and james corden voicing a high five emoji. let's hear that... you are smooth. just doing my duty. ha ha! what? what did i say? rocket, look at the party!
6:25 am
woohoo! come on, tell me you aren'tjust a little bit tempted. steven, for the last time, i don't want to buy a time share. come on, man, it's high five! you know me, i'm a favourite. it's got to be some sort of mistake. i mean, look at me, i'm an attractive hand giving a high five. fist bump! come on in. hey, ladies. fist bump? he's a knucklehead, literally! look at him. i can look like that! 0w, cramp, huge mistake! ok, i get it. i get it! what age group do you think this is aimed at? young! i would say young and indiscriminating. maybe a first film when you haven't seen anything else. imean... if it were funny... we would forgive it a lot more and of course, the lego movie, mentioned earlier, was very funny. pixar make funny animations. the level of comedy in animations is very high. but i have read a lot about the cynical nature of it and the product placement. because it is not funny, because you are not laughing, you are looking at the downside, which is that it feels very corporate.
6:26 am
even though it is supposedly about an emoji who wants to be an individual, a bit different, actually, what it is selling you are very corporate and mainstream apps and games. so it does feel a bit like an advert as they run around this phone and run to different apps and games. trying to get them young! better children's films are available this summer... i would say so. best out at the moment, the big sick? yes. mentioned this last week. doing very well at the box office, so that is good to see. a romantic comedy about an interracial relationship. also... talking about the smiths... it is also literally about a girlfriend in a coma. the lead female character gets very ill, and it is written by kumail nanjiani and emily gordon. it is their story, the story of how they got together. so even though it is dealing with big topics, it feels very personal and charming. they are happy to tip their hat to richard curtis and judd apatow, who produced the film.
6:27 am
i like romantic comedies when they are done well. we are often a bit down on them as a genre, but when done well, they are incredibly charming. i am pleased that they are celebrating how good romantic comedies can be. perhaps why it's doing well! if you want to sit on the sofa instead, what is your recommendation? free fire, from ben wheatley, co—written with his regular partner. he works across different genres, comedy and crime and dystopian sci—fi, but actually in all of his movies, there is this great feeling that things are about to go pear shaped. things are about to kick off, literally in this film, because it is about a meeting in the 70s in this disused warehouse in boston that goes wrong. it is a meeting between gangsters and arms dealers, and it is very tense and nerve—wracking and then the free fire of the title kicks it is notjust a shoot ‘em up, though.
6:28 am
there are great actors in this. brie larson, cillian murphy. it harks back to gutsy 70s action films. martin scorsese actually is the executive producer of this film and it does have that gutsy, dirty feel about it that we had in the 70s. james, thanks very much. see you next week! thank you very much indeed. that's it for this week. enjoy your cinema going if you can. as we said, quite a varied bunch. see you next time. bye bye. hello, this is breakfast with naga munchetty and roger johnson. coming up before 7:00 we'll have the weather with jay. but first at 6:30, a summary of this morning's main news. mo farah has been celebrating his win in last night's10,000 metres at the world championships, describing it as one of the toughest races of his career.

elsewhere nottingham forest beat millwall 1—0. the scottish premiership season starts today, champions celtic play hearts in the lunchtime kick off. english golfer georgia hall is two shots off the pace at the half—way it is actually raining here, and action gets under way from sandercock. you wonder how much this might affect katarina johnson—thompson indeed heptathlon. she goes from ten o'clock in the 100 metre hurdles. i hope this doesn't affect her. we will hope so, for sure. thank you, jess. lots of action to look forward to today. well, as we've been hearing it's a busy saturday at the world athletics championships with 18 events at the london stadium. here's a quick look ahead to some of the moments you won't want to miss. katarina johnson—thompson has long been tipped as the successor to jessica ennis—hill. she is now living and training in france, but can she win her first senior
6:39 am
heptathlon medal on home soil? sophie hitchon became the first female british olympic hammer medallist in brazil last summer, with a last round throw of 74.54 metres turn a bronze medal. will the lachish atley to be able to put our competitors in a spin and replicate that success? —— lancashire. usain bolt will compete in his last ever individual event. he qualified first in his heat in a performance which she said was far from his best, blaming the starting blocks. can he recovered to deliver the showstopping performance that we have come to expect? there is coverage throughout the day on bbc two from 1980 a.m. and on bbc one from 60. brilliant, well done. it is 6:40am. if you're still to go on your summer holiday or you know someone who is travelling home this weekend, be warned — there could be delays at some airports across europe. british airways, easyjet and ryanair have sent text messages to passengers, warning them to be at their chosen airport up to three hours early to avoid missing theirflight.
6:40 am
lengthy queues were reported earlier this week at airports in france, spain, portugal, italy, croatia and greece, where enhanced security checks combined with high volumes of passengers have been causing disruption. joining us now is the independent‘s travel editor, simon calder. good morning. you obviously didn't get held up in a queue trying to get in here, but it will be a headache for a lot of people? yes, let'sjust deal with the british end. it will be very busy if you are flying out this weekend. tomorrow is the busiest day of the summer for heathrow, the uk's the guest and busiest airport. they expect a quarter of a million people coming through. that is not whether problems will be, though. it is when you get to somewhere in the schengen area, which is the main countries where you go on holiday, the ones you have just shown, where you go on holiday, the ones you havejust shown, france where you go on holiday, the ones you have just shown, france and spain and portugal and croatia in greece and so on, and a couple of
6:41 am
others, they have changed the rules. previously you turned up on a charter flight from manchester or the east midlands or whatever... that is a well travelled passport. thank you. you wave your passport at the official and here she would say, 0k, the official and here she would say, ok, you are on holiday, off you go. a couple of myth and you are through. bart is now everybody has to have their details checked against some european databases. that increases the time. it is going to be annoying, if you want to get to be annoying, if you want to get to the beach or the bar and you are stuck in line. we have had reports of some people waiting several hours to get into some of the big airports. the big problem is coming back. you go through tackle the same track. —— through exactly the same check, at a spanish or italian or portuguese airport. that is surprising, because when you go on holiday you expect that you might get checked when you get there. they wa nt to get checked when you get there. they want to be careful about who is coming in. but when you leave, you expect they are happy to let you go. yes, when you fly out of the uk
6:42 am
there is no actual passport chip. the authorities know that you are travelling because the allied has passed on all your details. in the schengen area, they say we want to check everybody going out as well. the resources are stretched to breaking point. as a result of that we have seen breaking point. as a result of that we have seen some breaking point. as a result of that we have seen some people missing theirflights, which we have seen some people missing their flights, which is we have seen some people missing theirflights, which is why we have seen some people missing their flights, which is why the allies are saying you should get there early. if you are delayed at there early. if you are delayed at the airport, is there any compensation that you can claim if you miss your flight? no. in general. i spoke to the association of british insurers, and they said that delay travel insurance is designed for unexpected disruption. everybody knows that this is happening. the allies have told you to get there early. if you miss that, you are on your own. some airlines will allow you, at a slight charge, to switch to a later flight. the big problem is that all the airlines are pretty much full at the moment. you could be waiting days. what is the advice? going on holiday, you don't want to hang out at the airport for three hours. don't allow too much time. the
6:43 am
danger is that people hear this, three hours beforehand, but they get there for hours or five hours beforehand, and they end up creating a problem by adding extra pressure. i would personally arrive somewhere between 2—3 hours ahead. airports in some places, like palma, they are doing queue combing. they say, who is flying to birmingham? we will rush you to the front. that is annoying if you are going to gatwick and you are left standing there. it creates its own problem. some people do errant diy fasttrack, which is basically queue jumping, if they know their flight is about to go.l quick mention of barcelona, that is a totally separate problem? quick mention of barcelona, that is a totally separate problem7m quick mention of barcelona, that is a totally separate problem? it is building up. passport check is after the security screening. in barcelona, the people who work on the security checks are saying that their workloads are way too long and they have to do six in our ships. starting yesterday and continuing indefinitely on fridays, sundays on mondays, they are saying they are going on strike for one hour at key
6:44 am
hours through the day. yesterday there were almighty queues building up. it took some people three hours to get through. today, no problem. tomorrow, good luck everybody. simon, thank you. you're watching breakfast from bbc news. if you are going away, you might wa nt to if you are going away, you might want to know what the weather is like. 0r want to know what the weather is like. or you want to know what the weather is like. 0ryou might want to know what the weather is like. or you might be one of those people who goes away and hopes it is reining back here. that isjust mean. is it going to be a nice day? for some of us, a beautiful sunrise. this is a big are taken from manchester, not long ago. that is only half the story. as we saw a second ago, some showers around. that is the story for the afternoon. sunny spells and showers, not overly warm today, but starting off at a
6:45 am
reasonable temperature. not rising too much further. showers around across parts of england and wales, and into the afternoon, drifting east. thunder and hail mixed in with those showers. further north, sunny spells. into the afternoon, a fair bit of cloud in the sky. some breaks around. some sunshine, but when the rain comes in, it could be heavy with some thunder. showers moving through northern scotland, and northern ireland as well. parts of the south—west faring quite well, largely dry and bright. good spells of sunshine. probably getting up to 21 degrees also in the south—eastern corner between those showers. a shower or two at the world championship athletics is afternoon. not necessarily at one o'clock, but the 10th of a shower or two. dry rather than. showers overnight tonight under this ridge of high pressure. skies clearing, but there
6:46 am
isa pressure. skies clearing, but there is a weather system moving into the west of the uk. 0vernight, turning quite chilly. temperatures in double figures, in more rule spots, like rules scotland, could be cold enough for a touch of frost tomorrow morning. a bright start for central and eastern areas. hanging onto that whether in the south and east. cloud and rain moving through northern ireland, getting into central and western parts of scotland and western parts of scotland and western wales. going downhill, hanging on to brighter weather in south—west wales. for the community shield at wembley, arsenal taking on chelsea. it looks like ricky decent day. good spells of sunshine, temperatures 21— 22. now it's time for click. this week spencer kelly shines a light on whether it's possible to capture the sun's energy while on the road — to charge electric vehicles. they're ugly, huge and they ruin the landscape,
6:47 am
but we do kind of need them to get from a to b. but sometimes a road can be more than just a road. and that's the idea behind a french government backed initiative using the massive space given over to the transport network to also capture the sun through solar roads. i mean, look at this road, what's it doing right now, it's looking straight up the sky. and it's estimated that even busy
6:48 am
roads can see the sky for 70—90% of the time. but it's not all plain... sunning. the problem with putting photovoltaic cells into roads is the slightest bit of pressure, the slightest bend, and... so the cells are stuck onto slabs and covered with crushed glass and a translucent resin. at the facility near versailles, in france, these seven millimetre thick panels are being tested for their strength and durability so they can withstand heavy traffic as well as ensuring that they aren't slippery. we have the cell and on each face we added polymer to increase the stiffness and the durability of the cells itself. so do they bend or are theyjust resistant to bending? yes, of course they bend, butjust a little bit. so it resist. the costs, though, are proving high. although the panels can be laid over existing roads, this one—kilometre stretch in normandy covering 2,800 square metres came in at 5 million euros.
6:49 am
that's an estimated 4—6 times the price of covering the area with conventional solar panels. currently, yes, of course the cost is quite high. the aim is to divide by three the current cost. it will be within at least one year. after concerning the interest it's really a political approach. critics have questions about the viability of panels on busy roads and the efficiency of laying panels down flat on the road surface. the angle or the tilt angle of the panels will also influence the efficiency. if we have them lying on the floor, on the road, then we are influencing the tilt angle. one possible advantage of having the panels flat on the ground is that in the future they could be used to charge electric vehicles as they move along the road. and charging vehicles as they move is another idea on the horizon. developed by qualcomm technologies, this 100—metre stretch
6:50 am
of dynamically charging road is also being trialled in versailles. i do like the idea that although the road networks have obviously been a major source of the planet's pollution problems, they could also be, in the future, one of the solutions to the planet's energy crisis. and with the uk government phasing out diesel and petrol vehicles, renewable transport solutions like this mightjust be the ticket. stationery induction charging works like wirelessly charged phones, producing a magnetic field that's converted to dc power. though this technology has been with us for a while, dynamic roads are an exciting development. how accurately do you have to park this thing so the two pads are aligned? at the moment we're talking about an area the size of about a dinner plate, as long as that's aligned on both sides you should be able to send the charge through that.
6:51 am
you have a line of these on a road and you simply connect them all up and that would effectively give you a charging road. as long as the car was obviously aligned with that, and the technology was all linked and synced up, the car could actually charge while it's driving along using exactly the same principles and technology. critics though worry about the infrastructure cost of dynamically charging roads. 0thers point to the rapid developments in electric vehicle battery capacity that may remove the need for electric cars to charge while on the move. but if solar roads can be made cheaply enough and withstand heavy traffic, this could be one to watch in the not too distant future. hello and welcome to the week in tech. it was the week that the script for an unseen episode of game of thrones, as well as those from other hbo shows, was leaked online by a group of hackers. an new version of bitcoin was mined for the first time as the crypto currency split into two. and the us navy's launched its first fighter jet powered by electromagnetic energy.
6:52 am
the high—tech, high speed, hyperloop one has completed its first journey. a test that propelled this pod through a tube in the nevada desert at 192 mph, edging closer to its eventual aim of one day transporting passengers at speeds of up to 650 mph. meanwhile a security researcher managed to hack an amazon echo, making it possible to remotely stream audio from someone's device. the attack could only work on pre—2017 versions though, and physical access to the echo is needed first. and finally the team behind the hand—held spray printer painting device, which we showed you a couple of months ago, have developed a robotic version that made it possible to paint this giant masterpiece on an abandoned power station, using five different colours at once. the sky's the limit. i'm scott helm, here to give you a 101 to black hat, bsides and def con, which all happen
6:53 am
during one crazy week in las vegas. this is a very, very popular course, we've got some of the latest stuff that we've found in our own hacking that we do for clients and we put it into the class. the good guys have got to learn it because the bad guys already do. i've embedded some code into the page and then when you load the page it puts that message up, that it's not supposed to do. it was a nice introductory level course. so obviously this could be used for harm and the flip side of this is, if you were setting up to be a cybercriminal would you come to a formal conference like this and register to do a training course under your name? or would you go and learn how to do this on the dark web somewhere else? i don't think we would really expect to see criminals coming here to learn how to be criminals.
6:54 am
so we are in the vendor hall right now. this is where all the different companies have their stands, they can demo their products. this represents what they do inside your network, in that an attacker now doesn't know where the real target is and which one to attack. i don't know where to look. tell me if i'm doing it wrong. this in the front? hang on, waita minute... one, two, three, go! top three tips? we're in the desert, drink plenty of water. get a goodie bag and fill it with swag. and don't use the wi—fi. so we've just checked in b—sides, i have my bag, everyone that attends the conference gets a little bag of goodies so we're just going to take a look. got a few stickers here, the little hawaiian necklaces, a bsides beach towel. it's very corporate, it's very kind of official and formal. this is like a much more relaxed setting, it's much more enjoyable. the opening key note is taking
6:55 am
placejust behind me, and we're going to go and take a look around the vendors around the outside of the chill out room. scott, what did you just do? so, the wi—fi network is here is monitored, and the screen behind me shows you things that people are doing on the network. so we managed to just get the bbc click logo and rory up on the big screen. this is a tool called a doppler. the whole idea is it's analysing the network, and then carving out images real time, and displaying them up for everybody to see. so anything that anybody is looking at on the network, we can see as well. i found some friends. i found some ex—colleagues of mine from england. so which talks are you going to? i'm going to the banking on insecurity nets, which you are banned from. as members of the press. yes, so being members of the press at bsides, we can't go into the underground track, which is no press, no filming. most people don't even use their real names in the schedule, and unfortunately we're banned, we can't go in there.
6:56 am
it's like a party in here. i can't hear anything. it's a tech conference, it's a hacker conference. people often think it might be less sociable, but this is where most of us do our networking. we're in the middle of filming and somebody has just hacked the pa system in the hotel. yes. thank you. we made it, we got one. effectively, this badge is like a tiny computer, and i can make it do like really cool stuff. flames. yeah, we have come to the chill out zone just to take a little break. i bumped into an old work colleague and friend of mine, andy. he's a goon here, at def con this year. most people probably won't know what being a goon is, so... so being a goon is basically the enforcement of fun. so we were walking the corridors earlier today, and we heard some
6:57 am
numbers being thrown around, in the region of 50—60,000 attacks a day are launched against the def con network, is that accurate? it's what you would expect of a hacking conference's network. there's no official challenge, but hackers going to hack. federal agents attend the conference dressed in plain clothing. there's 30,000 people here. it's easy for them to blend in, and there's a running competition every year to try and spot and identify federal agents. my guesses would be they're looking out for people they may need to keep an eye on, and the other side of that is talent acquisition. so we were watching somebody get their first implant. are you nervous? yes, a little bit. i'm kind of wondering, how much it will hurt. oh, that felt weird! i am going for the nfc chip. i'm going to apply a little bit of pressure. it was literally like something
6:58 am
poking around inside my hand. my front door lock at home, i'm going to replace it with an nfc lock, and it will sense the chip in my hand and unlock my door forjust me. when you're at def con, you just never know what is going to happen next, it could be a complete surprise. that's additive in las vegas, dealing with some of the darker realms of cybersecurity. you will find more on privacy, security, and hacking on our website and social media as part of bbc‘s cyber hacks season. that is the short version of click for this week. the full version is online. thank you for watching and we will see you soon. hello, this is breakfast, with rogerjohnson and naga
6:59 am
munchetty. marvellous mo farah wins his tenth straight athletics gold medal. he isa he is a superpower! gold for mo farah! he stormed his way to the 10,000 metre title, much to the delight of the home crowd and his children. the thousands of fans watching the action at the london stadium won't just cheering for mo farah, a broad on usain bolt as he began his bid for a 12th championship title. —— roared on. he is through to the 100 metres semifinals later today.
