5:03 pm
in which five suspects were shot dead. at first, investigators believed that one of the cambrils suspects was also the barcelona attacker but now they are investigating the possibility that 22—year—old younes abouyaaqoub from morocco may have carried out the attack. he is currently at large. seven—year—old julian cadman from britain got separated from his mother, who was injured. his family are trying to find him. of course, i'm really worried. iwant to... i cannot hear anything with them. i want to hear what's happening. the authorities are keeping victims‘ bodies at the city's medical institute. the king of spain has visited the injured recovering in hospitals. it may take some time for all those killed to be identified and publicly named.
5:04 pm
clive myrie has been in barcelona for us and has been finding out what impact the attack has had on residents there. it's happening everywhere and we are knowing that someday it's going to happen here, because it's a very, very important city, very tourist city. it's a very, well, it's a target, very clear target. when these things happen near your home or near the people that you love and all that, because my sister was having lunch here with her boyfriend one hour before all the things happened and all that. so you had relatives in the area just before that vehicle came down here? yeah, that's it. a lot of friends are working near here and they're trapped in the shops because the police told them not to go outside because it could be dangerous. do you feel safe in the city now? ifeel safe — well, maybe
5:05 pm
not safe like before. you're concerned, worried 7 maybe right now it's more safe because there's a lot of police around, a lot of investigations, all that. people that this, well, not that safe like before. well, ifeel safe in my city because, i don't know, it's my city and the people are shouting all the time, "we're not afraid". we have to come to our lives and do normal life and all that. we don't have to let these things affect us and all that. we have to fight against this. you can't let the terrorists win. i've been here for the last two or three days now. that sense of defiance and strength is very evident in everyone here. yeah, that's it. yesterday was massive. the minute of silence here, there was a lot of people here. i think it's in catalonia always think about the way of the things. i think we're doing things right.
5:06 pm
we're solving the problem very good. i don't know, i think that people, the police and the politics and all that are trying to make people feel safe. they're doing it very well. shortly we will be speaking to our correspondent gavin lee in las ramblas who will be telling us what has happened today in barcelona as well as hearing from tributes to those who have been injured or killed in the two attacks. 1a people we understand have been killed, and over 100 injured. we saw pictures of king felipe vi visiting the injured in hospital. stay with us for the
5:07 pm
latest from barcelona. security officials in finland say a british citizen was injured in the knife attack in the city of turku yesterday, in which two people were killed. police are treating the attack as a terrorist incident, saying the 18—year—old moroccan suspect appeared to have targeted women. earlier i spoke to our correspondent andy moore and asked him what we know about the brit who was caught up in the attack. he isa he is a man who was born in the uk in dartford. he lived in the uk for some time before moving to sweden, where he has lived for some time. 0riginally where he has lived for some time. originally the finnish authorities said he was a swedish citizen but we know he is a british national. he has an incredible story to tell. he remained in hospital and has been briefly communicating with the bbc via facebook, despite his injuries. he said he is in pain so the responses we have got from him are short but we understand why. briefly he said he was not a hero but dead
5:08 pm
body was trained for comedy is a paramedic. he said he did his best and no more. yesterday he gave an interview to the swedish newspaper via the telephone telling the story of what happened and he said he was on holiday in the area with his girlfriend when this attack started. the first terror attack that there has been in finland. he said he went to the square and suddenly heard screaming, he turned around and saw a man with a knife heading a woman on the ground and he said he tried to help the women using his knowledge as a paramedic, tried to stop the blood flow. whilst doing that he was attacked, he was cut about four times. he said he returned to the woman lying on the ground, he saw that the women was dying and he said that the women we re dying and he said that the women were sold by the injured she actually died in his arms. he did sustain injuries, we believe he was
5:09 pm
cut or start four times. initially it was thought that he might lose the use of his hand because his nerves we re the use of his hand because his nerves were damaged, but we understand his injuries may not be quite so significant now, not life—threatening. he has said that he will give a press conference tomorrow when he will tell the world the whole story. that was andy moore speaking to me earlier. seven people have been wounded in a knife attack in the russian city of surgut. the attacker was then shot dead by police. the man apparently stabbed passers—by on the street at random. the islamic state militant group has said it was behind the attack. but russia's investigations committee said it wouldn't comment on the possibility of terrorist motives, calling the attack "attempted murder". nadal in the lead in barcelona and as we have been telling you through the day, the tributes being paid to
5:10 pm
those injured and killed the nose two attacks in barcelona have been growing. —— our correspondent gavin lee is in barcelona. it looks very busy behind you, what has been taking place? it is, the exact point is catalunya taking place? it is, the exact point is catalu nya square taking place? it is, the exact point is catalunya square and by las ramblas, this is the area for the white van mounted the pavement. behind me you can see lots of different tributes, candles, flowers at the places where either the van started or where people were found and where people went to help and down here for 500 for us you will see different shops and shacks, different tributes, there is a huge floral artwork by one artist and the candles of started to emerge. 0ne thing for me that strikes me, i spoke to you from paris and brussels and london after similar attacks and there is a red in which people come
5:11 pm
together, stay quiet, have minutes of silence and sing out in defiance and we have heard that in other places but it is quite a flighty feeling because it can be talking to you one minute and suddenly, last night, for example, there was a noise and thousands of people came running up, people thought there was another terror attack. it is just a case of right now people are getting on with things, it is busy but there isa on with things, it is busy but there is a nervousness as well, it is quite tense. the government has said that the security level will remain at four, which means that police will continue to govern the streets in spain, what has police presence been like, what have you noticed, gavin? it is rarely subtle. you can see in las ramblas, it is extremely heavy but around barcelona i think there is an effort to suggest and we have seen this part in europe, to try to avoid having a presence because on one hand you a reassuring
5:12 pm
but on the other hand you are reminding people. the other thing that strikes me, we have seen police blocking las ramblas, go back to november 2015 half of the paris attacks and we know that this parish govern where imports of the catalan government as to whether there would be roadblocks here, some kind of street furniture. —— the spanish government were in talks with the cata la n government were in talks with the catalan government. ultimately, they decided not to put up roadblocks and bobby will be conversations now about that. we know that there is one chief suspect in the manhunt, we do not know whether he was the driver, that has yet to be confirmed, but this is in this abouyaaqoub. this is where the second attack happened. —— this man is called eunice abaco. —— younes abouyaaqoub. they are not confirming any more than that but police
5:13 pm
sources and spanish media are currently porting that this is someone who may have influenced this group, this terror cell of 12 men between 17 and 2a, but at the moment the police are telling us that that manhunt continues. yes, shocking to see the ages of the suspects. gavin rae, in catalunya square, thank you very much. —— gavin lee. donald trump has thanked his former chief strategist, steve bannon, for his service after he was fired from his job at the white house. mr bannon — who was seen as the architect of mr trump's right—wing agenda — has vowed to continue to fight the president's opponents. he'll return to a role at the ultra—conservative website, breitbart news. david willis reports. steve bannon, widely credited for helping steer donald trump to victory, he was one of the most powerful men in the white house. if you think they will give your country back without a fight, you are sadly mistaken. every day — every day, it is going to be a fight. steve bannon has now returned to right—wing
5:14 pm
website breitbart news, which he ran before leaving tojoin the trump campaign a year ago. he has said that he intends to keep fighting on the president's behalf, but in an interview with the conservative magazine the weekly standard, he has said that the trump presidency that they fought for and won is now over. he is not a racist. i can tell you that. he is a good person. he actually gets a very unfair press in that regard. but we'll see what happens with mr bannon. by the time donald trump had made that less than ringing endorsement of his special adviser earlier this week, the die was cast. steve bannon's clashes with more moderate forces in the west wing coupled with renewed accusations following the violence in charlottesville that he harboured white nationalist sympathies helped seal his fate. all of which leaves the president an increasingly lonely and isolated figure. while steve bannon's departure is a victory for those who wanted to see an end to the more extreme elements in the west wing,
5:15 pm
whether it will lead to a better functioning white house remains to be seen. david willis, bbc news. let us take you live to boston in america. that is an aerial view of just some of the streets. 0ne america. that is an aerial view of just some of the streets. one of the streets that will be covered at the boston rally. the rally is in support of free speech. hundreds of police officers will be on the streets of boston in the coming hours as a rally, calling itself a protest in support of "free speech", gets underway. it comes just a week after violence occurred during protests in virginia. the fear is that there could be a repeat of what happened in charlottesville. counter protesters have partly also turned up. it set
5:16 pm
off at 12 noon. the mayor of boston has said that if there is any trouble, "we will shut it down." so many people are watching closely to see how this plays out. more than 500 police officers, some of them undercover, some of them with cameras are on the streets, backpacks are being searched for weapons, objects that can be used as weapons, objects that can be used as weapons, including glass containers and flagpoles have been confiscated. and as the mayor has said, anything that gets out of hand, it will be shut down. people giving out permits said they expected a couple of hundred to turn up. the reality is that over 10,000 people could be present at this rally. some breaking news coming into the bbc news. we understand that a 23—year—old man thought to be a prison officer has been charged with a total of 16
5:17 pm
offences including conspiracy to supply a class aa, class b and class c drug with intent to supply with misconduct in public office. the investigation has been conducted by the criminal investigation branch into the trafficking of branded items at the maghaberry prison in cou nty items at the maghaberry prison in county antrim. a55 road women has also been arrested as part of the same investigation and she remains in custody and is assisting police with their inquiries. the 23—year—old man, that is that prison officer, he is due to appear at lisbon magistrates' court on monday the 23rd of august. —— a 55—year—old woman. the headlines on bbc news:
5:18 pm
spanish authorities say the jihadist cell behind the two deadly attacks in catalonia has been broken up. however, a major manhunt is still underway to find younes abouyaaqoub — the man believed to have driven a van into crowds in barcelona, killing 13. a british man is among those hurt in yesterday's finland terror attack — he tried to protect two women from a man wielding a knife. president trump has thanked steve bannon for doing a greatjob, despite firing him as his chief strategist less than 2a hours ago. officials say more than 16 million people have been affected by severe flooding in parts of nepal, india and bangladesh. 500 people are thought to have been killed, with conditions expected to deteriorate further over the weekend. the red cross and red crescent say it is becoming one of the worst regional humanitarian crises in years. 0ur correspondent sanjoy majumder is in bangladesh. i am in the worst affected region
5:19 pm
as far as the floods are concerned. northern bangladesh. the reason for that is, this is where some of the rivers that flow from neighbouring india enter bangladesh, and the last few days, because of heavy rains on that side of the border, the levels of the rivers have been rising alarmingly. houses have been submerged, farmland, hundreds of thousands of people have been moved into temporary relief camps. in this area alone, 3000 schools have been shut down either because they are under water or they're badly damaged. the focus of the government and the international relief agencies is to try and get supplies of food, water and medicine as quickly to these affected people as is possible. many people are complaining that supplies simply aren't getting through, and one of the reasons for that is that in much of this area, road and rail links have been affected, so the only way to get supplies across to them
5:20 pm
is by boat or from the air. the other big worry now is that even though this is the worst affected area, the focus is shifting to central bangladesh, where river levels are also rising. and the fear is, that is the place that could be affected next. earlier i spoke to francis markus, spokesperson of the internation federation of red cross and red crescent societies in nepal, which has also experienced severe flooding. it has been a nightmare of a few days for the people caught up in the onslaught of the flooding and in nepal alone a quarter of a million people have been displaced from their homes and they are having a difficult time in terms of trying to salvage what belongings they can from their waterlogged home and in many cases they are camping out in
5:21 pm
schools and temples and any other available patches of higher ground. the floodwaters are receding in many parts of the disaster area in nepal but, really, you can see that people's trials and tribulations have only just begun people's trials and tribulations have onlyjust begun in one sense. in what way? what are the main concern now that the waters are going down? well, the immediate problems are, in fact, the situation is still difficult and that many areas are not yet accessible, there areas are not yet accessible, there areas are not yet accessible, there area number areas are not yet accessible, there are a number of communities that we have not yet unable to reach. many volu nteers have not yet unable to reach. many volunteers have been moving out to the affected communities to bring
5:22 pm
people some minimal rations of food and dry clothing and some equipment to be able to prepare basic meals, but the longer term problems, you know, once we managed to reach all of the communities, the longer term problems will be shelter and providing clean drinking water because in this kind of situation, disease is a real threat and beyond that, so much valuable farmland, crops up in damage, that people are starting to have serious concerns about by blizzards and how they will manage to make a living once the immediate aftermath of the disaster is over. at least ten people have been killed after a train derailment in india, according to reports. the incident happened near muzzaffarnagar,
5:23 pm
in the northern state of uttar pradesh. around 30 people have been injured. rescue operations are under way. 0ur correspondent nitin srivastava joins us now from delhi to tell us more. what is the latest. the latest is that ten people have died, the authorities have been speaking about their concern of the nature of this accident and more than two dozen are being treated in hospital and some people are said to be any critical and serious condition. the prime minister has tweeted about the incident, the rail administer it has been rushed to the accident site. this is another serious railway accident that has happened in india in the last two months and this is a big cause of concern, not only for the passengers and the covers but also for the government.” the passengers and the covers but also for the government. i am
5:24 pm
looking at some of the pictures that have been posted on twitter, u nfortu nately, we have been posted on twitter, unfortunately, we cannot show them to the viewers but it is incredible that some of the carriages that jumped the rails are on top of each other. why does india seem to have a problem with clean incidents? this is something which has been a great cause of concern for the government of the many decades, pictures have been coming from the accident site a few hours ago and they have been horrific. just to tell our viewers, this is not a one—off incident that has happened in india. in the last eight or ten months there have been at least four more serious accidents in india and more than 200 people have lost their lives, hundreds and hundreds have been injured and the government has been talking about modernising the railways in india which is one of the biggest networks in the world, more than 20 million people travel every day using this
5:25 pm
railway network. but, yes, accidents and safety concerns have been a big issue, which remain and tackled. 0k, thank you very much for that for now. we are going back to boston and america were hundreds of anti—racism demonstrators have been gathering in that us city to protest against what has been billed as a free speech rally, featuring far—right speakers. 0ur correspondent is in boston for us. the crowds are building. we are hoping to get a better picture but you can clearly see that it is very busy behind you. what is happening? yes, huge numbers of people at this so called free speech rally has started. i do not know how much you can see but it is beyond this placard that there are a few dozen
5:26 pm
people who are being kept far away from this protest is. that is the story. thousands and thousands of people from boston have come out in a massive anti—racism protest and they are still coming here and their d roves, they are still coming here and their droves, they are marching here from around the city and i would tell you that already there are several thousands of people here who have been chanting anti—racism slogans, and the donald trump slogans as well because the president failed to unequivocally condemn the far—right demonstration last week in cha rlottesville demonstration last week in charlottesville that ended with that violence, we saw nazi flags, swastikas, nazi salutes and there was a lot of disappointment by a lot of people here, al bridge even, that their president did not condemn that kind of behaviour unequivocally, as i have said. there is that small free speech protest, but a lot of those organisers have been involved infar—right those organisers have been involved in far—right rallies around the country in the past and that is why
5:27 pm
all of these demonstrators have turned out in really quite a statement from watson —— boston, who wa nt to statement from watson —— boston, who want to send out a message that this does not represent them, the good people charlottesville or their country. thank you for that update. the time is 5:27pm. a quick look at some of the other stories this afternoon. a think—tank which aims to improve living standards for low and middle—income families says the number of people in the uk who own a second property rose by 30 per cent between 2002 and 2014 —— to more than five—million. analysis by the resolution foundation found the number of people without property also increased during the same period. the government says it's making 60 million pounds a year available to communities most affected
5:28 pm
by second home ownership. vehicles have been left dangling from the edge of a multistorey car park in nottingham. this was after pa rt park in nottingham. this was after part of a wall collapsed. it fell away during the night and surrounding roads have had to be closed. no one was reported injured. structural engineers have been checking the rest of the building, whilst those with cars inside were told they could not remove them until everything had been checked and deemed safe. keeping track of your finances can be rather confusing. as money box presenter louise cooper has been finding out, the government is
5:29 pm
looking to simplify things. you have all of your pension than paper. a55 and olderjohn from newbury has had 80 jobs in the started work at the age of 20. he knows he has paid into age of 20. he knows he has paid into a variety of pensions but keeping hold of all the paperwork has been a problem. -- 55-year-old. at the age of 505i problem. -- 55-year-old. at the age of 5051 decided to review my pension situation and ibm realised i knew very little about my pension scheme up very little about my pension scheme up part from the fact that i had one big pension when i worked any company for quite a long period time. the department for work and pensions estimate there is currently a £400 million in unclaimed pension savings and john morrissey might be adding to the pot. definitely when i worked as a nurse i do not know what happened to that paperwork, no idea, and then later when i in another worked company quinney contributed, i have no idea. i have no paperwork from that, that was like over 25
5:30 pm
yea rs from that, that was like over 25 years ago. i do not have any paperwork from that at all. john is not alone. the government has recognised that this is a big problem, so we asked the association of british insurers to what with the industry to create an online dashboard, a place where people can log on and see all of their pensions in one place. so this is the pensions dashboard? yes, so for this hypothetical test person we have found it pensions. it pensions? yes, you can see them listed here. he has got his state pension from the department for work and pensions and can get congressional —— additional information. we have found that he has final salaries. you also have five jobs that he had with the contribution made. if the ads all that up. he hasjust over £4000 a
5:31 pm
month. he is a lucky man. he is doing just fine. currently, 16 pension providers have signed up, accounting for 34 million pensions overall, but this remains less than half of all pensions. ultimately, there is always inertia and people have other priorities, and we just believe there has to be that clear signal from government, this has to be done and if you do not do it you will be breaking the law. and then we will actually have that sort of service of people available. the dashboard should be available in 2019 and it is the type of service that people likejohn will find invaluable when it comes to working out their income in retirement. alina jenkins has the weather. it has been one of those days where
5:32 pm
one moment, there is glorious sunshine and the next macleod has built up and we are seeing showers. plenty of showers this afternoon across northern england, scotland and northern ireland. blowing through an eight strong and blustery wind. still some showers into this evening, but they will fade and the majority of the country becomes dry overnight. just showers clipping the north of england and scotland for a time. temperatures holding up between ten and 13 celsius. in the countryside, down to five or six. a chilly start tomorrow in places. for south—west england, it is a cloudy start as this frontal system pushes into the uk, increasing the cloud and bringing in outbreaks of rain. that will spread into southern parts of wales by about lunchtime. eventually into much of wales and northern ireland by the afternoon. for much of the country for much of the day tomorrow, largely dry with spells of sunshine and light winds, it should feel warmer. hello, this is bbc news.
5:33 pm
the headlines: spain is tightening security at busy tourist areas after the deadly vehicle attacks in barcelona and cambrils. a manhunt is still underway for younes abouyaaqoub, the man the police say may have driven the van into crowds on las ramblas. the prime minister of finland says the country has experienced its first ever terror attack. the bbc understands that the briton hurt in the incident was injured four times as he tried to protect two women from a man wielding a knife. donald trump has thanked steve bannon for his service during his election campaign. he tweeted that having mr bannon on his campaign against hillary clinton had been great. mr bannon was sacked by the president as his chief strategist yesterday. let's find out what is happening in
5:34 pm
the world of sport. what is going on? plenty! thank you very much. we will round up a busy afternoon of premier league action shortly. we will start at edgbaston, weather west indies batsmen have collapsed against england. they trail england by 346 runs. england have enforced the follow on as they attempt to wrap the matchup inside four days. joe wilson is at edgbaston for us, and hejoins us now. it's a packed house in edgbaston today. the tickets sold out a long time ago. 25,000 fans are here for a good time, and it's fun to watch england take wickets. it becomes a
5:35 pm
bit underwhelming after a while. that limit has been reached. let's start with the action, showing you anderson getting rid of kyle hope, the first of the hope brothers. just a humanist later, he came in to get rid of roston chase, out for a duck. it could have been a 70 or 80 all out for the west indies. the main reason it wasn't worse jermaine blackwood, who played some extraordinary shots are under way to 79 not out. he was trying to keep the strike at the end when cummins was run out, a direct hit from west lyng. 346 behind. it sometimes seems that the follow on is going out of fashion, butjoe root decided to enforce it. his bowlers were plenty
5:36 pm
fresh. we have the west indies batting again here in their second innings a short time ago, they were 14 without loss. as we stand here, there is the possibility that this test match could finish today. we could play on well past 9pm, but there is nobody here in edgbaston or in world cricket who wants to see the west indies disintegrate. absolutely not. but good to see england going strong. thank you for joining us. manchester united continued their impressive start to the new premier league season with another 4—0 win — this time over swansea at the liberty stadium. jose mourinho claims he merely "let the horses run freely" in the second half, as three goals in four half minutes ensured a pulsating finish in wales. patrick gearey reports. if you believe in the power of patterns and signs in sport, this may be manchester united'sj. where
5:37 pm
ever mourinho has been in his second year,... jordan ayew ever mourinho has been in his second year, . .. jordan ayew within ever mourinho has been in his second year,... jordan ayew within an inch of causing a hitch. swansea felt he shouldn't have stayed on the page. they failed to acknowledge his presence. the first league goal. no wonder he held onto the ball. mourinho's philosophy has been back with money. £75 million buys you the reliability of romelu lukaku. next, popper scored and swansea were helpless. two games, two 4—0 wins. a pattern emerges. i would say there is happiness in our play. it happens with me so many times with my teams, you are winning
5:38 pm
1-0, times with my teams, you are winning 1—0, you score the second goal, let's open the door and score more. no need to close the doors. just let the horses run freely, and they were magnificent. no such goal glut at anfield, where liverpool took on crystal palace. a scrappy game but liverpool got the goal they needed courtesy of sadio mane, who poked the ball home from close range in the 73rd minute. jurgen klopp's side are third in the premier league table. there was plenty of drama at st mary's where west ham thought they'd done enough to draw with southampton despite being reduced to ten men — only to concede a penalty in stoppage time, southampton winning 3—2. marko arnautovic was sent off for west ham after elbowing jack stephens. southampton were 2—0 up before two goals from javier hernandez brought the hammers back into the game. but they conceded a late penalty which charlie austin converted. elsewhere in the premier league this afternoon, two late goals
5:39 pm
for watford ensured victory at bournemouth. hal robson kanu scored and a few minutes later saw red, as west brom beat burnley — the side who beat champions chelsea last week. history did repeat itself for brighton, though — another 2—0 defeat, this time to leicester. and stoke are hosting arsenal in the late game — that's just kicked off and it's currently goalless. cardiff and ipswich remain at the top of the table in the championships as they start their winning start to the season, with wins. aston villa picked up their first win of the season, beating norwich. bolton's home woes continued as they lost to derby. sunderland against leeds has just
5:40 pm
kicked off, it is still 0—0. celtic remain unbeaten this season in all domestic competitions, they beat kilmarnock by two goals to nil at rugby park. the win means they're top of the scottish premiership on goal difference. tim hague watched the action. celtic have beaten all before them for well over a year. neither side seemed package in a quiet opening half—hour. as is so often the case, despite looking out of sorts at making six changes, celtic found the way. jamie forrest found the net. 0n the plastic pitch, he was almost in there again, but could they get their second? they almost did. a promising performers from the 19—year—old. while kilmarnock kept
5:41 pm
coming, they ever really threatened. this was about as good as it got. another assist, and callum mcgregor did the deed. 52 matches unbeaten for celtic. their dominance enough to put any opponent of their food. elsewhere, stjohnstone to put any opponent of their food. elsewhere, st johnstone beat aberdeen. hamilton are fourth they beat... south shields have booked their place in the first qualifying round of the fa cup after beating bridlington town 3—1. former south african international midfielder matty pattinson scored the pick of the goals in the second half. so the fa cup dream is still for the team from the north east — only 11 matches now to the final at wembley! your‘s women face an uphill struggle
5:42 pm

5:45 pm
and the film directed by stanley tucci. then the weather is on the agenda. as it always is at the weekend but this time its extreme weather as we follow al gore and a series of presentations around the inconvenient sequel, a follow—up to the oscar—winning inconvenient truth. and in the hitman's bodyguard, ryan reynolds meets samuel ljackson and it's love at first sight, well, not really. final portrait, i am a massive stanley tucci fan as an actor. he has directed before, i don't think i have seen any of them looking at the list. how does this work out? there was a famous one called big night, where he played a restaurant owner with his brother. stanley doesn't pop up in this film although tony
5:46 pm
who played his brother does, playing a brother interestingly. this is a story i didn't know and a story stanley tucci, was strolling around in paris 25 years ago and picked up this memoir of an american writer called james lord. this is what the story is based on. james lord himself, it's his memoir. if you know his work and there is an exhibition at the tate, in fact, i urge you to see that, this does feature that work. he got famous for the sculptures trying to get to the essence of humanity in an absurd world. stanley tucci doesn't concentrate on the dark heart, more the struggle of the artist and the pain it is to sit for that artist because he can't make
5:47 pm
up his mind when the work is finished, if ever. here they're trying to work out how long he should book a vacation for. the end of the week, yeah. isee. i could change it again. i would like to know how many days do you need? i don't know. i think it would be great to work for another week. a week? a week, yes, i think a week would be good. no, a week is fine. that's fine. i canjust move my flight to next wednesday, would that... ? wednesday. yes. wednesday is good. fine. let's say wednesday. 0k. good. but then, you know. what? there is no question of the portrait ever being finished. no, of course. and that's the great geoffrey rush. it is. sometimes i love him and sometimes he can be, what we call a ham. he can dominate the film, unbalances it.
5:48 pm
i did worry about him here. he is quite sort of reined in there, there is a lot of smoking and staring at pictures, challenging portraits, like are you talking to me? we also get a lot of the scrape of the art, the stuff, where he worked is beautifully captured by the same cameraman from the king's speech. this bit is very well done. the film takes a lot of life from the cafe paris kind of stuff, the stuff that stanley tucci relishes in, cafe scene where is they drink wine and hard boiled eggs and meet prostitutes and swirl around and it's that art, it's a romantic vision of the artist you want from a film about an artist in paris. you get that struggle but also the flamboyance and indulgence with that romanticism. it's stanley tucci film, he is very much there, it's a character actor directing.
5:49 pm
he is indulgent to the acting and lets the funny bits stay in there. it's a serious subject but it's very elegantly and lightly done. it's enjoyable. the way you describe the cafe scenes, i love that, visually it's fantastic. but it can be a cliche. absolutely. it almost goes there but deals with a new subject, a fresh and he is almost the audience, oh, god i have to put up this with annoying prostitute coming in and taking attention away from me. never being able to be on time orfinish this portrait. it's very much about that, i think it's done beautifully here. the artist at work. and inconvenient sequel, i got nervous, because you said flip chart. i think it's power point presentation these days.
5:50 pm
in the first it was, an inconvenient truth was a huge success and... won an oscar. it also changed our perception of al gore, who was this dull politician at the time and what it did, it was shown in schools everywhere, it sort of proved that climate change was happening. it seemed unnecessary to do so now but unfortunately obviously, al gore seems to feel the need to do so. his life has changed much. he narrowly missed out on being president and he has become this travelling salesman for climate change going around teaching people how to do fairly dull presentations on a power point around the world but also we get a film in which extreme weather features. it's cinematic extreme weather, unfortunately. but there is is also the fact that some people still don't believe this stuff is happening. he still needs to convince people. i need no convincing that fracking is probably not good for the earth and wind turbines and solar panels are, but it's difficult to get
5:51 pm
the world to turn around. it's a look at this. unfortunately, jane, and i say this with heavy heart, it's really boring. 0k. oh, no! because i was just watching the clips we are playing here, i was thinking this looks like a busman's holiday for a journalist, looks like possibly a interesting documentary and i am thinking are people going to pay whatever they pay now to see it at the cinema? i mean, if they did, it's supposed to be a cure for non—believers in climate change, i think it's more a cure for insomnia. spectacular as glaciers are, they're moving at a faster pace than this film. the cause itself needed a much betterfilm, a more inspiring film than it gets. it looks like propaganda for the people who believe in climate change, its an easy stick to beat people. look how boring that film is. it's a shame because it's a vitally important subject treated with deathly dull scenario.
5:52 pm
all right. hitman's bodyguard, is that boring? i wouldn't call it boring. although it is interesting because it's supposed to be this light—hearted summer caper in which the light—hearted ryan reynolds who we have seen in deadpool as a foul—mouthed superhero and samuel ljackson, famous for his expletives and the works of tarantino. they couldn't getjohn travolta so they got ryan reynolds. you definitely get a first here, there is a sort of gun fight and car battle on the streets of coventry, which has probably never happened in cinema history before. congratulations for that. ryan reynolds is supposed to be escorting samuel ljackson to the hague where he is going to give witness at the trial of belarussian warlord played
5:53 pm
by gary 0ldman doing a russian accent. but they argue, they get lost. of course because they feel that the film is flagging they must get a laugh by having the two of them hide away with nuns on the run. 0k. one more! 0k. you just told me that was the best bit. it's one of the bits we can show. there is no swearing or violence. it's very flippant and that's all fine. then non—stop violence and some
5:54 pm
of it you want to treat in a cartoonish way but in tom and jerry they get squashed, it's funny. the violence felt real, it hurts. yet no one is getting hurt. inconsequential violence becomes dull, almost soul—destroying while you watch so much of it, i felt that. it's not the language, some is colourful and swearing, it can be fun. it isn't in this. even when they have a fight in a store and a canal in amsterdam it never reaches... the fighting isn't funny and ceases to be so. when you say is it boring, yes, i found it dull in that respect, it wasn't inventful fighting. i thought it was plodding and reduced to ryan reynolds saying you are going to swear again ina minute. he does. what is the best out? if you haven't been on holiday this year or have stayed in the uk and it's been wet, how about a summer holiday
5:55 pm
with the odyssey, it's about jacques cousteau. he was remarkable in what he did. this is about him, and his marriage and his son. it's a very french film. look at those hats, you couldn't get better than that. this is also about ecology and other sort of clips of the antarctic that we saw in the al gore movie. it strikes me it would be a safer place without all these film crews. it's the most beautiful film of the summer. the dvd, a blast from the past you brought us. i don't want to make anyone feel old or young, 50 years old it is this year, it's out on dvd, the graduate with dustin hoffman.
5:56 pm
anne bancroft is the older woman playing on hoffman. it's still pretty crazy after all those years. thank you very much. my highlight this week may be your russian accent, we can discuss that later. lovely to see you. thank you very much. that's just about it for this week. enjoy your cinema—going. thank you for watching. see you next time, bye. hello. many of us have been dodging
5:57 pm
the showers today, and there have been quite a few showers to dodge. frequent and sometimes heavy across northern part of england, scotland and northern ireland was the further south and east, fewer showers and some good spells of sunshine across south—west england. any showers in the coming hours. to lose some of their intensity. we will keep some overnight, but otherwise becoming largely dry with some clearer skies. in town, temperatures between ten and 13 celsius. in the countryside, under clear skies, temperatures down to five or six celsius. a chilly start for some tomorrow. for others, a cloudy start as the system starts to push its weight in from the atlantic. that will increase the cloud across the south—west and eventually brings in outbreaks of rain. patchy for a time, eventually brings in outbreaks of rain. patchy fora time, is resilient, but a dull and damp morning here. that will extend into

northern ireland. we could see temperatures reaching the mid—teens, but with all the cloud, heise between 17 and 23 celsius. again, a warm, muggy field. still some rain on tuesday for northern ireland, slowly pulling away, but some good spells of sunshine coming through, making you feel rather warm. this is bbc news. the headlines at 6pm... spanish authorities say the jihadist cell behind the two deadly attacks in catalonia has been broken up. however, a major manhunt is still underway to find younes abouyaaqoub — the man believed to have driven a van into crowds in barcelona, killing 13. a british man is among those hurt in yesterday's finland terror attack — he tried to protect two women from a man wielding a knife. president trump has thanked steve bannon for doing a greatjob, despite firing him as his chief strategist less than 24 hours ago. there's intense security
