6:02 am
of up to150mph. our north america correspondent jane o'brien reports from miami. clouds gather over miami's south beach, all but deserted as hurricane irma lurks on the horizon. millions of people have been asked to evacuate. irma has already devastated parts of the caribbean. barbuda is an island in survival mode and bracing for hurricanejose. going to come back here and that i am going to try and salvage something, i don't know. my whole life is here, so... in florida, those images are a stark warning of what may come. miami is putting up shutters and preparing for the worst. these people on the beach are really the few diehards who, for one reason or another, have decided to stay put and wait out the storm.
6:03 am
and, even if they wanted to leave at this point, quite frankly, it is probably too late. even those who planned ahead found themselves caught, as airports closed, rose backed up, and hotels ran out of rooms. we care about your safety. you've got to get prepared. if you're in an evacuation zone, you need to get out now and get either toa need to get out now and get either to a friend, a family, a hotel, a shelter, but get where you need to 90, shelter, but get where you need to go, and do not wait. this is a storm not seen in a generation. since hurricane andrew laid waste to the state, 25 yea rs hurricane andrew laid waste to the state, 25 years ago. irma is bigger and unpredictable. different projections show various paths, but all life—threatening. on sunday, its full impact will be felt. and, in a few minutes, we will be talking to a resident of anguilla, which is one of the islands that is facing the prospect of being battered by a second hurricane. the manchester arena reopens tonight, just over three months after the terrorist attack which killed 22 people.
6:04 am
extra security measures will be in place for the we are manchester benefit concert. headlining the event will be noel gallagher and his band, alongside acts courteeners and rick astley, who told breakfast that he hopes the concert will be an evening of celebration. that venue has had some amazing artists, from all over the world, come and play there. and i think that has to keep going. and it was absolutely terrible. there are no words for it, what happened. but i do think positive light has to be shone sometimes, for us to get through things. the united states has called a meeting of the un security council for monday to push for tougher sanctions on north korea. it wants to impose an oil embargo, ban its exports of textiles, and subject leader kim jong—un to an asset freeze and travel ban. it follows north korea's continued refusal to end its nuclear weapons programme. the government is being urged
6:05 am
to force restaurants, pubs and takeaways in england to display food hygiene ratings. a score of five means hygiene is very good, and zero requires urgent improvement. the local government association wants to see businesses that fail to comply be fined or prosecuted. jon donnison reports. all food outlets, including restau ra nts, pu bs all food outlets, including restaurants, pubs and take aways, are given hygiene ratings by local councils. the scores range from zero to five. in wales and northern ireland, all food premises are legally required to publicly display those ratings, even if they have received a low score. but the scores on the doors of law, as it is known, does not apply in england, meaning a restau ra nt does not apply in england, meaning a restaurant that might have been found to be filthy doesn't have to let its customers know. now, the local government association says brexit should be used as an opportunity to tighten the laws in england. the lga is calling for
6:06 am
england. the lga is calling for england to come into line with wales and northern ireland, and scores on the doors, the food hygiene ratings, on premises's door, so that you know when you arrive at a restaurant exa cta what when you arrive at a restaurant exacta what is rating is. the lga says the change would encourage food outlets to improve hygiene and reduce cases of food poisoning. while people in florida brace themselves for the onslaught of hurricane irma, dozens of other caribbean islands are already counting the cost after the storm hit them earlier this week. josephine gumbs—connor lives on the british overseas territory of anguilla, which felt the full impact of irma when it passed directly over the island on wednesday. we can speak to her now on skype. thank you very much for your time this morning. you are five hours behind us, stayed up late to talk to us. behind us, stayed up late to talk to us. thank you. first of all, glad you are safe. tell us what is happening at home in anguilla. so it
6:07 am
is iam here in anguilla, a beautiful, brilliant, moonlit nights, which i think kind of belies the sense of foreboding to come. there is a certain uneasiness this evening and i am sure that no one is sleeping comfortably ride at this time. essentially, we are, ithink, thatis time. essentially, we are, ithink, that is say, feeling like we are getting ready to go into an exam, and we are very ill prepared. anguilla, as you know, is an overseas territory. we are 36 square miles, literally i6 overseas territory. we are 36 square miles, literally 16 miles x three miles, literally 16 miles x three miles, and roughly about 13,000 residents. we are very familiar with hurricanes, so we obviously always prepare and the nature of our construction is such that we generally feel comfortable when
6:08 am
storms are approaching. but as we know, irma was like no other, and the morning after, when anguillans raise their heads, it was a sense of horror, looking at an island that looked like a nuclear bomb had struck her. we are feeling, as we get ready for the arrival of hurricane jose a bit get ready for the arrival of hurricanejose a bit of confusion. residents were... you can hearfrom people who were calling on the solitary radio station that is only available for communication purposes that they are not sure whether we are to expect the winds, at around 2am to 3am this morning, with hurricane force winds a little later at around 8am in the morning, or whether it is 2pm in the afternoon. so we have been paying attention. we noticed in the latest broadcast that
6:09 am
the winds have now increased to 155 mph, based on what the national hurricane centre in miami was saying at the 11pm update, and has now slowed to a0 mph. so you know, this wariness, everyone is trying to keep themselves together, but i think the biggest fear right now is the amount of debris, loose articles, houses that were demolished, where the galvanised iron is just that were demolished, where the galvanised iron isjust in abundance, and all over, unrestricted, the wood of those who had shutters and lost those shutters, you know, the metal that is around, it is in such abundance that the fear that is being echoed by so many of the residents that i have interacted with today is the
6:10 am
feeling that even if you felt reasonably secure, we recognise that these are going to be projectiles in what is now an upper category for hurricane. you have painted a vivid picture of what you have have experienced at the moment. —— category a. how long do you think before the island can recover? you know, as we look at the incredible state of devastation, in which, literally, i would say almost every household has received some form of damage, and in most households the damage, and in most households the damage has been significant, business places, as you go through the town, as you go through the villages, it is like you are dumbfounded, and you are openmouthed. whether you are turning
6:11 am
to the left of the road or the right of the road, you are seeing incredible scenes of destruction. containers, a0 foot containers, that just appear to have sales from one pa rt just appear to have sales from one part of the road to another —— to have sailed. the infrastructure is fully cracked open. the nature of the devastation is unprecedented, and anguillans on the whole, as you will see if you scroll through social media, they are feeling the brunt of a country that feels destroyed. at i will say that people of anguilla are very resilient. that has always been our claim. but at the same time we recognise that the magnitude of this means that, unless we are getting urgent, effective and timely help, that we are looking at least six months, very clear, to be
6:12 am
able to start to get ourselves together. josephine, sorry for interrupting, you mentioned aid. i wa nted interrupting, you mentioned aid. i wanted to talk to you about that, as a british overseas territory. how do you feel about the aid that has been offered from the uk, from other countries in europe? well, i would start with, who has the responsibility for aid? let's start with our mother country, the uk. after all, we are british citizens. i believe that aid should be something that is timely, it should be prompt, if it is to be effective. u nfortu nately, be prompt, if it is to be effective. unfortunately, for one reason or another, i do not think that sufficient steps were put in place to anticipate the arrival of what was known well in advance to be one of the strongest storms ever to form
6:13 am
in the atlantic. so yes, there has been criticism levelled. i have expressed criticism, and i stand by it. it was i feel that, if something like this were approaching the mainland uk, i rather suspect that there would have been sufficient preparation, in advance, so that when the storm ravaged, there would be an immediate, quick, and a response that took into account the fa ct response that took into account the fact that this would have been a storm like no other. that, i think, has not been the case here. josephine, it has been very interesting talking to you this morning. thank you very much for staying up with us. we wish you, yourfamily, staying up with us. we wish you, your family, and all the
6:14 am
staying up with us. we wish you, yourfamily, and all the residents well in anguilla. thank you very much for your time. and just to say that orisjohnson has responded to those criticisms about aid not reaching those islands, saying that the response has been very good and he also highlighted that the uk military has been in the region, saying it also was difficult to deliver helicopters and aid before, because of the high winds in the way that islanders would have wanted. here's louise with a look at this morning's weather. here is the latest satellite picture. ijust here is the latest satellite picture. i just want to point out that the cocaine in mexico —— hurricane in mexico, has weakened significantly. irma is expected to make landfall close to florida on sunday. jose as well is near the
6:15 am
leeward islands, the track that does not follow the same track, it may move into open waters. we will keep you updated throughout the morning. closer to home it is a classic autumnal morning, some sharp showers, heavy and at times it will not feel particular great out there for the early half of september, all due to this area of low pressure, northerly winds very much a feature and they will drive in those showers on exposed north and west facing coasts, they will lift further inland as we go through the day. by this morning, it looks as though the northern ireland and much of scotla nd northern ireland and much of scotland we will have a scattering of showers, less frequent through the irish sea towards the north—west of england and into wales. a few down towards the south—west but we will see more showers develop as we go through the day. central and
6:16 am
south—eastern areas will start off with some sunshine, a fresh start, actually start in some spots, but the sunshine will help as we go through the day, just to watch those showers gather in momentum and strength and they will push further inland. with light winds in the south they could be slow—moving and if you catch them you will know about it. at least on the coast with the wind they will rattle through pretty quickly. tempo is disappointing. —— temperatures disappointing. —— temperatures disappointing. as we go through saturday night it looks like we will continue to see windfall in light and light showers across some parts, we will see some wet and windy weather into the far north and west, a sign of what is to come into sunday, so pretty miserable second half of the weekend through scotland, much of north—west england and wales. but the front will we get off as it moves its way through central and south—eastern parts of the uk, not much in the way of rain,
6:17 am
scattered sharp showers following on behind. it looks as though this unusually windy theme was set to continue as we go into monday, with a deep area of low pressure really the talking point, it stays windy with plenty of sharp showers and top temperatures and1a— with plenty of sharp showers and top temperatures and 1a— 19, went to talk about throughout the morning andi talk about throughout the morning and i will be with you. —— plenty to talk about. we will be back with the headlines in ten minutes, now it is time to the film review. hello and welcome to the film review on bbc news. to take us through this week's cinema releases, welcome back, mark. what have you watched in the last few weeks? very interesting week. we have wind river. we have insyriated, a very tough and tense drama, set in damascus.
6:18 am
and it, stephen king's classic comes to the big screen. it may be a classic. we'll talk about that later. you're such a horror fan! let's start with wind river. i watched the trailer for this in awe when i went to see detroit. even the trailer is visually stunning. but so stark. yeah, written and directed by taylor sheridan, saying it's the conclusion of a trilogy about the modern american frontier. it's set in wyoming on a native american reservation. at the beginning there's the death of a young woman at the start, which brings together two characters. one isjeremy renner‘s hunter, tracker, who is dealing with his own issues of grief and guilt. the other is an fbi agent played by elizabeth olsen who is basically — she's in vegas beforehand — she arrives completely unprepared, a total outsider, not even the right clothes for the job. immediately everybody thinks, what's she doing here?
6:19 am
here's a clip. i'mjane banner. are you by yourself? yeah, just me. i'm the tribal police chief. that's cory lambert. he found the body. this is his father—in—law, dan. we got the same job, hey. i'm sorry to meet under these circumstances. so do you want to show me the body? i don't mean to be rude, i'm just freezing my ass off here. the quicker the better. that's going to get a lot worse if you go out there dressed like that. the body is five miles on a snowmobile. i'm afraid you'd be dead by the time we got there. i got the call and this is what i've got. at the beginning there's hostility towards her character. but she's very tenacious.
6:20 am
in order to pursue the case she needs a tracker on board. this isjeremy renner‘s character. you saw from that clip how much of it's to do with the environment, to do with the landscape. you said watching a trailer made you feel... i was cold by the end of the trailer! it was extraordinary visually. i thought, whoa, this is going to be bleak. that chilliness goes all the way through the drama. and actually, though it is a murder mystery investigation with a sort of labyrinthine plot, it's really about this land, about people being forced to live in a land never meant for anyone to live in it, about the hardship, the difficulty of that life, about the community. and what i like about the film is it's very sympathetic towards its characters. it's all to do with placing and setting. that wyoming backdrop is really brutal. jeremy renner is well cast. he tends to underplay emotions. a lot is said by doing and saying very little. elizabeth olsen i think is terrific as the character who arrives from the outside and has to prove her way and prove that
6:21 am
she's worthy of this case. and during the course of the film, you really come to see her character understand the bleakness of this landscape, the difficulties that the people who live here face. so i think it's a very, very solid, very gripping drama. bizarrely, when you consider that it is narratively a murder—mystery thriller, it's much more about environment. it's about place. it's about those people. it's about the plight of the indigenous people. 0k. insyriated, your second choice. this is a drama, not a documentary. yes, absolutely a drama. set in damascus. there's an apartment block in which a family and others in the block are trapped inside by sniperfire and helicopters and gunfire outside. and what happens is that there is a character who is the matriarch, hiam abbass, who is brilliant, who is controlling, looking after everybody in the apartment block. there is a young couple, who have a young baby,
6:22 am
who are planning to leave. they're going to make their getaway at nighttime. but then what happens is tragedy strikes. there is an air of deception that surrounds the tragedy, because our central character doesn't tell what she knows. and somehow through this deception it's as if the outside conflict comes in. so what you then have is a series of characters trapped within this really hellish environment in which there is a lie that they are dealing with. there is a knock at the door, it turns into something approaching a home invasion movie and it becomes very, very claustrophobic. filmed with very tight hand—held cameras following you around the apartment. you feel the space. at times, although it's a completely different setting, it did remind me of under the shadow, another story about conflict outside and a mother and a daughter dealing with the... there's a shell that's come through the roof, but it's also a ghost story. and in many ways this is a story about there being a ghost in this house. it's tough. there is a central sequence which is very, very hard to watch. though it was very well filmed,
6:23 am
not exploitatively filmed. occasionally it drifts over into melodrama. it's a tough film in which you believe in the characters and in the battles between them and the stresses that they're under. you really do feel this oppressive environment that they‘ re living under. all right. i don't know why i'm laughing. now, the third choice. because you're right to laugh. because you're back from your summer holidays, you thought, i know, i'll give jane one that she just will not like at all, because it's not my thing. i think you will do. this is it. i love your optimism! it's an adaptation of a stephen king doorstopper novel, which has been done, there's a very famous tv version with tim curry as pennywise the dancing clown, the really demonic presence. so the story is basically, a group of kids living in a town, derry, who are all haunted by visions that seem to tap into their deepest fears.
6:24 am
and somehow there's a central character, it of the title, who seems to be feeding upon theirfears. it starts with a sequence which has become iconic, in which young georgie meets pennywise. here's a clip. no! ah! hiya, georgie. what a nice boat. do you want it back? um... yes, please. you look like a nice boy. do you want a balloon, too, georgie? i'm not supposed to take stuff from strangers. oh, well, i'm pennywise, the dancing clown. now we aren't strangers, are we? how are you feeling? this has provoked so much debate in the newsroom today. i am the only person surrounded in a sea of people who had no desire to go any further than that scene.
6:25 am
here's the thing. yes, it's a horror story, there is a strong horror element, but actually what it is is a coming—of—age drama about a group of kids called the losers, who gang together to try and find this mythical evil, to try and unravel this curse that's happening time and time again to the town. and the films that it refers to are poltergeist to some extent, the goonies, there's nods to et, there's a touch of stand by me in there. it's absolutely a film which works, because the director cares about the young characters. he cares about the misfits, the outsiders. you come to care about them too. yes, it is, there are, moments of fear, moments of shock, jumps. anybody who finds clowns fundamentally creepy is going to be very impressed by bill ska rsgard's performance. incidentally, he does a very good job of filling tim curry‘s clown shoes. he does it brilliantly. but it's an adventure. i mean, it's a horror—inflected adventure, but it is an adventure. this is only the early
6:26 am
years of the novel. there's a section of the grown—up years. this is chapter one. there's going to be a second one. there is. this owes a debt to some extent to nightmare on elm street. at one point the kids go past a cinema showing that. there's a lot of freddy krueger in there. and there's a score that goes from lush orchestral adventure music to nursery rime chimes, the strange, twisted... you're not buying this. it's a romp. it's really enjoyable. it's really good fun and it's scary when it needs to be. personally, i would have liked it to be more scary. i still remember the first time i saw pennywise the clown, and you do get those moments, but i really liked it. what was best about it was how affectionate it is for the source material. i think fans will really go for it. let's talk about the wonderful bill nighy. yes, limehouse golem is terrific. it came out last week. it's a story set in 18805 london. there is a killer
6:27 am
stalking the streets. bill nighy‘s detective is sent to investigate it. they know it's an unsolvable case and they want him to take the fall. the film is about theatre, the theatre of murder, the theatre of death and real life. so on the one hand, half of it takes place on stage, music hall, half of it takes place in the morgue and out on these misty streets. a lot of hammer in the way in which it's lit, the way in which it's ghoulish. very visual. music hall. yes, and funnily enough, people haven't quite appreciated enough what a good—looking film it is. it's brilliantly written by jane goldman, who adapted the novel. it's a complicated novel to put on screen. i really liked it. danny mays was wonderful. i'm a big fan of his. i think you'll enjoy. it is gory. it is gorier than it. there is gothic gore in there. you see, there's a line between that and being scared out of your wits. actually, here's what you should do,
6:28 am
see both of them and then tell me which you enjoyed the most. good plan, mark, back—to—back, with a bottle of gin to get me through it! i shouldn't advocate that, this might be on in the morning. we'll edit that bit, right? let's talk about the dvd. yeah, actually, blu—ray, shock treatment has come to blu—ray. shock treatment is the sequel to rocky horror. it was described as an equal, not prequel or sequel. when it first came out, it was pretty much ignored. it's a mess, no question about it. the creator said it's a mess because it started as one thing and turned out as another. what's really interesting is it's become incredibly prescient. it's about a world taken over by reality television. people thinking that they can solve all of their problems by going and sitting in a tv studio in taking part in a game show. the songs are fabulous, the dance routines are fabulous. when it came out, i thought this is a mess but i'm enjoying it. this is a mess but it's nightmarishly prophetic, and i really like it.
6:29 am
fab, i could handle that one. lovely to see you back... just about. nice to see you. see you next week. just a reminder, you'll find all ourfilm news and reviews from across the bbc online. and you can find all the previous programmes on the bbc iplayer. that is it for this week. whatever you're brave enough to go and see, i hope you enjoy it. soft drinks are available! thanks very much for watching. have a great week, bye—bye. hello, this is breakfast, with charlie stayt and naga munchetty. coming up before 7:00am, mike has the sport. but first, at 6:30am, a summary of this morning's main news: millions of people have been warned to evacuate from florida, as hurricane irma approaches
6:30 am
the united states. the huge storm, which has left a path of destruction across the caribbean, made its way along the coast of cuba last night. it is expected to reach florida tomorrow. some of the worst—affected caribbean islands are now bracing themselves for the arrival of a second hurricane. jose is reported to have strengthened, with winds of up to 150mph. the manchester arena reopens tonight, just over three months after the terrorist attack which killed 22 people. extra security measures will be in place for the we are manchester benefit concert. headlining the event will be noel gallagher and his band, alongside acts courteeners and rick astley, who told breakfast that he hopes the concert will be an evening of celebration. the united states has called a meeting of the un security council for monday, to push for tougher sanctions on north korea. it wants to impose an oil embargo, ban its exports of textiles, and subject leader kim jong—un to an asset freeze and travel ban. it follows north korea's continued refusal to end its nuclear weapons programme. the united nations is warning of an unprecedented refugee
6:31 am
crisis in myanmar. more than 250,000 people have now fled the country. the muslim rohingya minority says that myanmar‘s military has been attacking them and burning villages. the un says 270,000 people have crossed into neighbouring bangladesh injusta crossed into neighbouring bangladesh in just a fortnight. the government is being urged to force restaurants, pubs and takeaways in england to display food hygiene ratings. a score of five means hygiene is very good, and zero requires urgent improvement. the local government association wants to see businesses that fail to comply be fined or prosecuted. those are the main stories this morning. let's ta ke let's take a look at today's sports news. and talking of food, the man behind you, according to his former england team—mates, he has the worst diet ofany england team—mates, he has the worst diet of any athlete graeme swann knows. yet he says even though
6:32 am
anderson is 35 he has the body of a whippet. and he is happy, he is eating such lovely food. maybe that's what it is, eating the food you like rings happiness. james anderson says he felt emotional and relieved after becoming the first englishman to take 500 test match wickets. he achieved the feat in west indies second innings in the deciding test at lord's. now, before anderson took centre stage, ben stokes pushed england into a first—innings lead of 71, while anderson reached the milestone with the wicket of kraigg brathwaite early into the windies' reply. he is only the third seam bowler in history to go past 500. he didn't stop there, either, helping reduce the windies to 93—3 at stumps on day two. they will resume this morning leading byjust 22 runs. milestones are nice, but that's not what drives me to become as good as i can be. i want to try and help england win games of cricket. that's my motivation,
6:33 am
that's what i try and — that's why i turn up every day trying to improve myself, and that's what will keep driving me on. i'm loving playing at the moment, i think i'm bowling well, i feel fit and strong, and i'm enjoying playing in this team, so hopefully that can continue for a while yet. sojimmy anderson joins a select bunch of international bowlers who have reached 500 test wickets for their national team. at the end of yesterday's play, jimmy had reached 501 for england. he will fancy his chances of catching west indies legend courtney walsh's tally of 519 wickets in the ashes series this winter. but he has got some way to go to pass anil kumble, who racked up over 600 wickets for india. australia's glenn mcgrath is the leading fast—bowler, on 563, while that other scourge of england, shane warne, with his spin, is second on the leaderboard, with 708 wickets. butjimmy still has a lot more wickets to take if he is to get near the sri lankan magician muttiah muralitharan and his record
6:34 am
of 800 test wickets. he was 38 when he retired. but could he still do it? could be a0 when he retires, so that is... what, a0 wickets are you? i don't know. it is an extraordinary target to try and get two. he said he was feeling the pressure of getting to this one! 50 wickets would be good enough for most of us, wouldn't it? rafa nadal is through to the us open final, after beating juan martin del potro in their semi—final overnight at flushing meadows. nadal lost the first set to his argentinian opponent before taking command, and at one stage won nine games in a row, eventually winning in four sets. the spaniard will aim for a third us
6:35 am
open and 16th grand slam title in sunday's final. i played well. i am playing well almost the whole season. so today was the day to play well. that is the real thing. i was playing so so at the beginning of the tournament, andi at the beginning of the tournament, and i have been playing better and better every day. and today was the day to play the best match of the tournament. nadal will meet south africa's kevin anderson in the final, who reaches this stage of a grand slam for the very first time. he beat spain's pablo carreno busta in four sets at flushing meadows. some good news for british tennis, too. jamie murray and switzerland's martina hingis reached the final of the mixed doubles, after a straight—sets semi—final victory. now, it is one of the steepest climbs in spain, and the angliru is all that stands between chris froome and a place in the history books. froome, in the red, is hoping to become the first man in 39 years to win the vuelta a espana and tour
6:36 am
de france in the same year, and with a lead of over 90 seconds, barring any mishaps today, it will be a victory parade into madrid tomorrow. after the international break, the premier league returns this afternoon with seven matches. leaders manchester united are in the late kick—off, when they travel to stoke. the game of the day though is this lunchtime, when manchester city take on liverpool, who have left out brazilian forward philippe coutinho, who remember was hoping to go to barcelona in the transfer window. but, even without the brazilian, man city realise liverpool are fellow title challengers this season. it was the team last season against the top five or six teams in the premier league, their results... they always went away and at home against the best teams. so it would bea against the best teams. so it would be a nice game tomorrow. they have the same problem we have. they have one session, one real session to
6:37 am
prepare the game against us. we have the session today to try our best, to be prepared, because the players come from all over the world, and played completely different, they have different rules in their —— roles in theirteam, have different rules in their —— roles in their team, and that makes ita roles in their team, and that makes it a real challenge. celtic will face the daunting prospect of paris st—germain in the champions league this week, but the scottish premiership continues to provide easier tests for them. the scottish champions beat hamilton a—1 last night, with psg loanee odsonne edouard wrapping up a comfortable win with an impressive effort. they go top for the time being, although aberdeen can overtake them with a win at hearts this afternoon. in the championship, derby have jumped up to fourth after thrashing hull city 5—0. four first—half goals, and that from bradleyjohnson, completed a one—sided night for gary rowett‘s side. in rugby league, the title contenders are flexing their muscles ahead of the play—offs, and castleford extended their lead at the top of super league, with a 38—2a victory over leeds. meanwhile, wigan are up to third, after a thrilling late victory
6:38 am
against hull fc. hull had overturned a 1a—point lead to be in front going into the final moments, but late tries from anthony gelling and john bateman gave the warriors a 30—22 victory. newcastle made it two wins from two in rugby union's premiership, with a dramatic late win over sale. after beating worcester on the opening weekend, a penalty try awarded just six minutes from time helped the falcons to a narrow 13—12 win. saracens, london irish, bath, and gloucester will hope to join newcastle on two wins this afternoon. it is a sport more commonly associated with middle age and a slower pace of life, not with young people drinking and socialising, but the festibowl event in london is hoping to change the perception of bowls. and, as i discovered, there is another way of spicing up the action. it was off with the shoes and socks. they may not know their burnt ends
6:39 am
from theirjack hires just yet, at a new generation learning bowling lingo, tempted on to the green by a mix of music, drinks and a sense of freedom. until now, bowles may not have been seen as rock and roll but due to a new initiative, the public perception of this emblematic british game may be about to change. but first, it is the shoes. not going to make any difference to my technique, i don't think. the barefoot bowling movement, with social sessions on greens, is one of the many newcomers in australia and -- is the many newcomers in australia and —— is won over many the many newcomers in australia and —— is won over many newcomers the many newcomers in australia and —— is won over many newcomers in australia, and they hope it will succeed in britain now. it makes you feel very lovely. the shoes of? grasping your toes, and all that. especially when the grass is nicely cut. doesn't improve your bowling? i have no idea, that was the first timel have no idea, that was the first time i played it. i have never bowled before, but i enjoyed it. time i played it. i have never bowled before, but i enjoyed itm
6:40 am
feels free, and it feels... it can almost feel like you are a little bit on holiday. with the junior bowls championships taking place in wales this weekend, the sport is keen to its youthful appeal. because while at the elite international level may be all the players are under a0, the majority who take up the sport at a grassroots level are much older. it lends itself to everybody, from any background in any community, it is just a really fun, social sport, and that is what we're trying with festibowl, to see the light, fun side of the sport in this setting. it has a bias, which is on the small side, and it will bend towards the bias. you should roll up the trousers, that will give the whole holiday effect. the rules haven't changed, but playing without shoes is a far cry from the traditional game, as the attire in this battle of the pensioners in 1933 shows. well, the sport has been played here since the 13th century, reportedly made famous by sir francis drake. the seamen matched
6:41 am
their skill. he finished the game as their skill. he finished the game as the spanish armada sailed up the english channel, and what those playing today may not realise was that the sport was banned in the middle ages for being too much of a distraction. it is an emotional rollercoaster. lawn bowls clubs, bowling clubs around the uk,, i am a little bit unsure about this but in my mind it is about safeguarding the future of the sport. the average age is about 28 to 30, and this is what we wa nt is about 28 to 30, and this is what we want to do. we want to get more people bowling, a younger demographic, and we are going to spread the ball in love. the love certainly flows when you deliver that first winner. perhaps having my toes out had made me feel more relaxed, or i was just learning from the best how to knock onward. and in australia, it has taken the average age of the national team, of the women's game, down to 32 —— on wood. it is making an impact in
6:42 am
australia, and hopefully it will do the same here. it is largely associated with older... it is still. they have the advantage of good weather, as well, in australia. health and safety. i hate to be the person to bring this up, but bowling balls are person to bring this up, but bowling balls a re really person to bring this up, but bowling balls are really heavy. yes, if you drop one on your bare feet. so when you go to collect them, you need to be quite careful. that is a good point. we were careful, and you don't stand in the way of a bowling ball coming down the green. just make sure you get out of the way. as long as you eagle eyed, you are. hundreds of thousands of muslim people fleeing violence in myanmar say the country's military are burning their villages to the ground. the united nations now believes almost 300,000 rohingya refugees have crossed the border to bangladesh, creating a humanitarian crisis on an epic scale. our south asia correspondent justin rowlatt followed one family for a day, to see how they're coping.
6:43 am
this woman is nine months pregnant. her baby is due any day. she is just one of the hundreds of thousands of rohingya muslims reckoned to have fled myanmar into bangladesh. they say the army and radical buddhists attacked their villages. translation: day came at two a.m.. they set fire to our houses, and started shooting. that's when we fled. i walked for seven days to get here. it has been so hard, but we had to escape. but roshida and her unborn child's ordeal is far from over. guards tell them they have to move on. they say there is land they can stay on over hill. but there
6:44 am
isn't enough for everyone. so it is really chaotic here. the forest guards told everybody to come into this little area of land. everybody is desperately trying to stake out a plot before it gets dark, and also before it begins to rain. there is no drainage, no water, no aid agencies handing out food, no one, even, to help sort out the squabbles. roshida's husband and father tried to claim some land, but other refugees take it. translation: i have taken this land, but they are saying that i had to move. they say they want a plot here, so they won't
6:45 am
let me make a shelter. so, despite being heavily pregnant, roshida and her entire family will now have to sleep out in the open. translation: we were building a house, but a woman broke it. she had a knife. i don't feel well. i am feeling sick. ijust don't feel well. i am feeling sick. i just need somewhere don't feel well. i am feeling sick. ijust need somewhere to stay. the family only have a plastic sheet to cover them. from justin who delivered that report, he is heading back to the camp to find the woman he spoke to in that report, he has spoken to unhcr and doctors —— unicef and doctors without orders, so here's trying to get that family moved to a hospital. we will keep you posted on
6:46 am
that. now here's louise with a look at this morning's weather. you are keeping track of what is happening with these hurricanes, irma which has caused so much devastation, residents in anguila now worried about hurricane jose? you can see it is heading towards the island of barbuda, but it is likely to brush to the north of that, and it is starting to pivot a little further north, so it will hopefully move into open waters and not be as significant as irma. at the moment irma is sitting to the north of cuba, it is continuing to track in a westerly direction, it was downgraded just slightly and is still expected perhaps to move its way towards the florida coastline, there is a level of uncertainty as
6:47 am
to the track it will take, it may move further west but certainly florida is expected to bear the brunt of irma's furia over the next couple of days. closer to home, i could not do this book is without showing you is absolutely stunning aurora pictures coming in. it is something i would love to see, but today's weather story is not quite as beautiful. low pressure sitting off in the north sea, the winds coming down from the north—west, it will feel disappointing, and the winds will driving plenty of sharp showers along the north—west in particular. by nine o'clock this morning expect some showers through northern ireland, some of those will push towards scotland, there will be some spiny —— sunny spells for a time but i don't suspect we will be able to dodge the showers all day. showers from the north—west of england into wales and the south—west, central and south—eastern areas should start off
6:48 am
with some early morning sunshine but don't be full, those showers will get going and gather in intensity as we go through the day. frequent widespread across the north and west facing postcard they will drift further inland and —— some hail, maybe even some thunder. if you got the showers you may feel pleasant enough, 17 or 18, the showers you may feel pleasant enough, 17 or18, but the showers you may feel pleasant enough, 17 or 18, but in the showers it will feel disappointing. through the night the showers fade away, we see a brief lull in proceedings, a chilly start for sunday morning, perhaps a single figures in one or two spots in the rural areas, but cloud and rain gathers as we go into sunday, this area of low pressure will bring heavy rain across scotla nd will bring heavy rain across scotland and northern ireland and strong winds, it will weaken as it moves its way towards wink —— england and wales, patchy rain through the midlands through the afternoon. gradually moving its way south—east by the end of the day. 12-19 south—east by the end of the day. 12— 19 degrees, tempo ——
6:49 am
temperatures not particular brilliant. it stays windy end showery, the unsettled into monday with the gales on exposed coast as we go through the night, highs of 1a-19. we'll be back with the headlines at 7am. but first it's time for click — see you soon. this week, we've been to ifa, the massive tech show in berlin. we'll be looking at the big launches and the cool new devices from the fair in a few minutes, and we'll also hear from the people behind them, who, we've noticed are once again mostly men. the lack of women in tech has been well documented and it's something
6:50 am
we run up against every single day working on click, and it's so frustrating, it's extremely rare for us to turn up at a tech company and for any of the available spokespeople to be female. it's been suggested that the lack of women in tech starts developing early on. kids are going back to school this week on the heels of stats from the latest exam results here in the uk showing that girls are turning away from stem subjects — that's science, technology, engineering and maths. only 20% of those who sat the computer sciences gcse exam this year were girls. for gcse engineering it was 10%. someone who is fighting gender stereotypes is anne—marie imafidon. at 11 years old she took an a—level in computing and by 20 had graduated from oxford in maths and science.
6:51 am
so the biggest thing is the social norm and it's that awareness of the options that you have, but also the role models and the people that have gone before you. and so you think that maybe it is just for dead white guys to do, and of course there are loads of living guys that are working in science and technology, but also loads of dead women that have created things like wi—fi and bluetooth, of course famously hedy lamarr. the first programme was written by ada lovelace. but there are countless women whose stories we don't here and who we haven't been told. and so that definitely plays on that social norm. anne—marie co—founded stemettes, an organisation on a mission to inspire and help more women into stem careers. to inspire and help more women into stem careers. she's also filled a house with teenage girls from across europe and turned it into an incubator to foster new stem ideas. my advice for young girls is to look for your tribe and look for groups you can plug into and get involved in. technology is such a social thing to do, you rarely work on your own. i'd love to see a technical female character in eastenders or something
6:52 am
like that to move the social norm just a little bit so that for the rest of us that whole notion of there being a technical female is something that's notjust that one character in the matrix or whoever it is in that bond movie, but it's something a little bit more mainstream for all of us. of course since i met anne—marie there has at least been one big change on screen that may hopefully influence a whole generation... ..maybe that should be regeneration of geeks. ok, now, as promised, to berlin, to europe's largest tech fair, ifa, where dan simmons has taken cover from the autumnal weather. tunnels of curved tvs lead you from hall 70 to 80. there are 26 here at ifa, some larger than a football pitch, packed with the latest gadgets, gizmos and gardening baskets? this one also uses leds
6:53 am
but to grow plants. the basket monitors and provides water and nutrients to promote growth, and it's out in november. this year, robots seem to be everywhere. cute ones... this one's got eyes in the back of its head. it's got an hd projector. ..to ones that will help you clean the floor. it's supposed to stop if someone walks in front of it but if it doesn't, at least you get a nice shoeshine. and this multilingual one helps you get to your gate, among other things, when you feed it your boarding card. both started work at seoul airport this summer hoping to impress visitors and raise lg's profile ahead of february's winter olympics. now, this is remarkable,
6:54 am
ao0gb sd card. only last year this would have looked like this. we've seen vayyar‘s gadget for diy home improvements that can see through walls earlier this year using radio—frequency signals like radar it can also detect family people are in the room and whether they're sitting or lying down. useful for carers to detect falls. and the kit can also see through internal walls, so multiple rooms can be monitored without the need for an invasive camera. this sort of anonymous tracking could be used to smarten up our gadgets too. you can have your tv follow you around, you can have the tv turn off when you get up and get a coffee and you can have the coffee machine
6:55 am
start making coffee when you leave your room in the morning or even direct the air conditioning or the heating to follow you around or to change in accordance to how many people are inside the room. two new upgrades to consumer 360 cameras. kodak's ak offering is now an all—in—one unit. postproduction has been simplified with an easy—to—use slider to stick the two images together if you don't like the automatic on—board result. and insta360's one can now stream live to facebook or youtube if you down—res from its native ak quality. it also let's you do a sort of director's cut of what you've shot to share with friends, and the clever bullet shot feature let's you go a little bit matrix. and chinese newcomer detu showcased its new low—cost 8k 360 cam, due out in november. two big phone launches here, lg's v30, which supports super high—res sound files at a stunning
6:56 am
2—to—1 ratio oled display and sony's latest xperia model, which uses the camera's autofocus function to create a 3—d model of anything. normally to do 3—d you would have to go to a professional studio and use lots of cameras but we've brought that into one camera on a smart phone. take that standard obj file and basically the possibilities are endless. hmm, with some messaging apps out there already able to make use of these 3—d scans, perhaps they are. there's one over there. where are they? i thought we were in a safe place! oh, no! the release of both apple and google's ar developer kits are creating a bit of a buzz... ..at a time when augmented reality
6:57 am
has been upping its game. well, we started out with augmented reality in books seven years ago and at the time we were using webcams and computers. now the characters that we generate with the digital ar are much richer, they‘ re more complicated, they're more sophisticated. the interactivity we can do with those features is much greater so as arkit and arcore from apple and google come into play later this year, we'll be able to be even more, it's going to be a very exciting journey. if you happen to find yourself on a roof and want to be joined by a dinosaur, then this could come in handy. the best ar experiences are when the virtual object is well placed in a 3—d space and its proportions change as you move around it. here, its face is here.
6:58 am
the arkit is going to give the cameras on our everyday phones and tablets the capability to perceive depth better. it will do so by tracking objects in a scene through the frame using computer vision and analysis and combining it with data from its motion—sensing hardware. according to google its arkit will also estimate the light coming into a room so that virtual things are placed in the scene and dynamically lit. and if rumours are to be believed, the upcoming iphone will feature a laser sensor to improve its spatial awareness. and oualcomm two weeks ago released this video which shows its new depth sensing chip, showing android devices won't be far behind. right now, the pricing microsoft hololens might provide this experience for the elite few but augmented and mixed reality could be heading to the masses.
6:59 am
that's certainly what the aim is with this, the $30 zapper zapbox. so, the kit consists of this google cardboard inspired headset, which of course you place your phone inside, and to increase yourfield of view while doing that there is a fisheye lens to attach. now you also got a head strap which means once that's attached you've freed up your hands, once your hands are free you're going to be able to hold onto the two controllers so you can interact a bit more with your content and make sure you place things in a suitable environment in the real world, well, here are the markers. they'll ensure the area is accurately mapped so virtual objects can be anchored appropriately. there you go. oh, there's a rabbit. hello, a rabbit has appeared. right, must get these in my hands. just a shame i found the headset rather uncomfortable to wear. it left me with a bit of a sore nose. but if a game of golf isn't
7:00 am
for you then maybe this is. thank you. city social‘s foray into the world augmented reality uses the medium to bring their cocktail menu to life. thank you. you have a choice of what genre of art you would like in relation to what cocktail you choose so every cocktail tells a story. before seeing this in the flesh i did struggle to see the point but the detail was beautifully executed. it was creative and i think i personally could have appreciated it more on a food menu. that's boards are short cut of click this week. —— that's it for the shortcut of click.
