6:05 am
this was sparked by the death of rashan charles, a 20—year—old chased into a shop by police. officers say he tried to swallow something. there was a struggle and he became ill. just over an hour later, rashan charles was declared dead. he is the third young man to lose his life after being stopped by police in london injust a month. they after being stopped by police in london in just a month. they are angry and confused as they are not represented. they have to carry knives and sell drugs because they are living in fear. why do they have to do that? they don't understand life. they don't want to work for the system. it was concern and anger at the system that last night spilt out onto the streets. police say whatever the frustrations, this is not what the family of rashan charles wanted. bbc news, hackney,

london. we'll be talking to dan in hackney inafew we'll be talking to dan in hackney in a few minutes. 11—month—old, charlie gard, has died after his life support was switched off at a hospice. his parents gave up their fight to have his genetic condition treated in america during a high court case earlier this week. charlie's condition grabbed the attention of many around the world, including pope francis. our medical correspondent, fergus walsh, has more. this is charlie gard without breathing or feeding tubes. born apparently healthy, but soon, a devastating genetic condition emerged which causes progressive muscle weakness. by his side throughout have been his parents, connie yates and chris gard. charlie was transferred from intensive care at great ormond street hospital, where he'd spent ten months, to a hospice, where he died earlier today. they'd fought a lengthy battle to keep charlie alive, refusing to accept he had suffered catastrophic brain damage. and they raised funds online for experimental treatment
6:07 am
in the united states. great ormond street applied to court to end charlie's life support, and everyjudge backed them. at the uk supreme court, with charlie's parents sitting behind, the hospital's barrister said his suffering should end. the reality is that charlie can't see, he can't hear, he can't move, he can't cry, he can't swallow. an american doctor offering to treat charlie with this experimental powder had not seen his full medical records and it took six months before he came to london to examine him. finally, on monday, at the high court, charlie's parents abandoned their legal fight to keep him alive, saying that time had run out. our son is an absolute warrior and we could not be prouder of him and we will miss him terribly. his body, heart, and soul may soon be gone, but his spirit will live on for eternity, and he will make a difference to people's lives for years to come. we will make sure of that.
6:08 am
all chant: shame on gosh! a private family tragedy was fought out in public. even the location and timing of charlie's death became a matter of dispute. doctors and nurses at great ormond street, one of the world's most renowned children's hospitals, received abuse and even death threats, which charlie's parents condemned. charlie died a week before his first birthday. his parents said they were sorry they could not save him but would set up a foundation in his name to help other sick children. fergus walsh, bbc news. the united states and south korea have staged joint missile exercises in response to the latest test firing by north korea of an intercontinental ballistic missile. it's the second such missile to be launched by pyongyang this month, and reached an altitude of more than 2,000 miles. north korean state media reported leader kim jong—un as saying that the test proved that america was within striking range.

6:10 am
episode of casualty was filmed all in one go, so that is one continuous shot with one hand—held camera for a full 48 minutes. filming a storyline with real—time action throws up all manner of problems, so why did they do it? it is the closest the show can get to reflect the nhs in its most raw form. take it easy. don't go through that yourself. it took two weeks of rehearsals for the cast and crew, and eight full—length ta kes were and crew, and eight full—length takes were filmed. it is the last one of those which will make it to air tonight. bbc news. casualty is on bbc one at 9:05 tonight. tunein tune infor tune in for that. quite a technical achievement. wet wetwork fronter is leaving the

6:13 am
a considerable cleanup overnight and there is little sign of what happened. a few scorch marks on the road. a bit of debris around. but the council has been out to clean up most things. not a lot is left to show what happened last night. it was quite a serious episode for a time. limited violence carried out by only a handful of the protesters who were part of the protest yesterday. it turned violent later on last night. there were huge issues and tensions and concerns people had. it is notjust about the death of rashan charles. later today, his father will meet with the father of one of the other young men who has died in the last month in london after meeting with the police. they will both hold a vigil outside the police station close to the two raised concerns about police. —— to here to raise. but the

family say they don't want this. they are working with the police investigation commission to see what happened with rashan charles. this is the flashpoint from last night just in the background. thank you. live from hackney. let's look at the front pages and charlie gard features on the front of many, as you would expect, including the sun. charlie gard's mum connie yates saying that our beautiful little boy has gone, obviously devastated, his life support was switched off a week before his birthday and both the pa rents a re before his birthday and both the parents are saying that he passed away. the front page of the mirror as well. chris garde pictured with

charlie gard. something different on the front of the daily telegraph, election will be a second poll on the eu is their headline and this after concern that britain could still be in what the paper calls a state of flux when the next general election comes around in 2022 and remain supporters could seize a chance to water down brexit and even try to reverse the process. a story we will be talking about later over concerns about fast broadband and whether providers of broadband across the country are providing to consumers what they are advertising. more on that later. we will be talking about that later with grant shapps. that times saying gangs are paying teenagers to launder crime cash. thousands being paid by criminals to hide or launder stolen money in their bank accounts so pa rents a re money in their bank accounts so parents are being asked to monitor their children's transactions. the
6:16 am
picture is ben stokes, success in the cricket. he is the first england batsmen to hit three successive sixes in a test match since wally hammond in... ben, you'll remember this, 1933. remember it really well! a quick look in the business world, this story in the middle is interesting, regulators yesterday saying they could consider new rules to limit the limit the amount of nicotine in cigarettes to nonaddictive levels but shares in the big tobacco firms falling sharply as a result. america says it wa nts to cla m p sharply as a result. america says it wants to clamp down on some of the world's largest tobacco groups. you're watching breakfast from bbc news. the main stories this morning: donald trump continues to change his white house team, confirming on twitter he's replaced his chief of staff with a former army general. fireworks and bottles have been thrown during a protest in hackney in east london after the death of a man who had been restrained by police last week.
6:17 am
time to talk to sarah to find out what's happening with the weather. cani what's happening with the weather. can i say i'm officially on board with the weather forecast before it's started because i want to talk about hot temperatures. be nice, you know what i'm going to say already, but i'm looking forward to it anyway. it's not a write—off, some sunshine to be seen through the course of the weekend but also plenty of those showers around and it's feeling quite blustery and rather cool for the time of year but having said that, this is this morning in bedford. blue skies and sunshine around this morning and for some that will last through the day. also some rain and some showers in parts of scotland and northern ireland, blustery in the north—west and we have some rain sitting in the english channel today and that will push its way northwards as we had through particularly two this afternoon. looking at this morning, 9am, showers in northern parts of northern ireland and north—west
6:18 am
scotla nd northern ireland and north—west scotland but further south it is drier and brighter and a bit of sunshine in parts of north—west england to the midlands. heading to wales and the south—west of england, patchy cloud. there's the rain sitting in the isles of scilly and southern parts of cornwall and devon and in the far south—east we have the rain lingering off the coast of kent and east sussex. should be dry to start the day at the oval as the third test continues but later in the afternoon we have more of a chance of seeing the rain heading in an the breeze picking up. moving through the day, this rain in the south will filter further north, so in much of southern england we will see outbreaks through the middle pa rt see outbreaks through the middle part of the day. to the north of that, drier in the midlands, northern england and wales with a few showers and we will see a mix of sunshine and showers in scotland and northern ireland. temperatures today around 17 to 22 degrees. into the evening hours is when we see the rain in the south pushing further north so across all of england and wales, a spell of wet weather through the evening and night.
6:19 am
further north—west, clearer skies and still the showers rattling in on the breeze. overnight temperatures for most around 13 to 15. reasonably mild. through the day tomorrow, low pressure is still sticking with us, it's been with us for a while and one area of low pressure pushing away to the east so the bulk of the rain pushes away but we still have low pressure in the north—west that will feed in plenty more showers. not raining all the time, showers moving through quickly on the breeze but in the north and the west some showers will be heavy and thundery. fewer showers reaching the south—east and it's looking like a decent day for ride london in surrey and london, the chance for later in the day a few showers filtering in. low pressure stays with us as we look to the new working week. no great changes into monday. still fairly showery, particularly to the north and west, fewer showers reaching the south—east, though, and a hint of something drier and brighter into the middle of the
6:20 am
coming week. sarah, we will let you off, thanks very much or now. more from sarah later. we'll be back with the headlines at 6:30pm. it's time now for the film review with jane hill and james king. hello and welcome to the film review on bbc news. to take us through this week's cinema releases, i'm joined by james king, while mark takes a summer break. welcome, james. great to see you. what have you been watching this week? first up, it feels like ages since there has been a new, fresh, romantic comedy. well, there's one out this weekend. it is called the the big sick and i will tell you about that. from australia, hounds of love, this is a brutal true story, a kidnap drama. and a big hit in the states, this one, it stars queen latifah and is a comedy called girls trip. now, probably no one has missed
6:21 am
all the publicity for the big sick. really interesting interviews everywhere with the actor, the writer. this is a really interesting take. does it work as a film? yes, there is a lot to say about it. first, you can see on the poster, kumail nanjiani is the writer and the star and it's written it with his partner, emily gordon, about their life, how they got together, the real—life romance. the big difference between them is kumail is originally from pakistan, moved to chicago with his family, quite a traditional pakistani muslim family, whereas emily is white american, from this academic and eccentric family. that is the chalk and cheese dynamic that every good romantic comedy needs. yes. that is at the centre of it but then people are saying, why is it called the big sick? there is also an illness which happens to one of the characters as well.
6:22 am
there's a lot happening in the film, a lot of story. the clip is from the beginning of the movie. kumail is trying to make it as a stand—up comedian and he meets emily, played by zoe kazan, for the first time. 0k. hi. hi, hello. my name's kumail. we know. we saw you perform. now that the niceties are out of the way, i have to tell you that when you yelled at me, it really threw me off. you really should not heckle comedians, it's so rude. i did not heckle you. i just woo—hooed you, it's supportive. that's a common misconception. yelling anything at a comedian is considered heckling. it does not have to be negative. so if i yelled out, like, "you are amazing in bed", that would be a heckle? yeah, that would be an accurate heckle. whoa! goodbye. i'm going. you have scared my friend off now. already, it is endearing, isn't it? i think kumail and emily, the writers, are inspired by the greats.
6:23 am
they've said they were inspired by richard curtis, annie hall and tootsie so if you are inspired by those movies, that is a good start. tootsie is one of my favourite films! absolutely. what was really good about it, a lot of people have said, is this some statement about the politics of america and racial relations in america right now but it is not. it is a personal story, not a political story. it is a true story about two people getting together. it is a lovely personal story. is there anything new in talking about interracial couples, which doesn't get talked about a lot? absolutely. that is a refreshing thing about this film, it is in there but it is not trying to make a larger statement. it is just about what happened to them. this is what happened to them. it is very charming. he's in it, he wrote it, he stars in it but it is not too self—serving, it's more affectionate than that? absolutely, it is very affectionate and there's a lovely relationship between kumail and emily's parents, holly hunter and ray romano. ray romano, i know from a sitcom
6:24 am
and one of the voices in ice age. i didn't really expect him to be as good as he is. you can see him there. in this comedy is really showing us he is a good actor as well. i think he could be possibly up for some awards for this performance. i love holly hunter. she is just going for it! she isjust nuts in this and brilliantly so. fantastic. how lovely to go into the summer after a hard year with something genuinely fun and uplifting. we have not had a new, fresh romantic comedy for a while. people seems to think we know all the tropes, we know how they work, all the cliches but this actually, it has a romantic comedy framework but it is doing new things. our next film from australia. i'll put it out there, i have read lots about it but i know i could not stomach it. talk us through it and explain. explain why some people like me may be rather queasy. again, loosely based on a true story, at least,
6:25 am
about the moorhouse murders which happened in perth in western australia in the mid—‘80s, where a suburban couple were kidnapping teenage girls. i suppose what is really gripping and interesting about this film is that it is not some exploitative horror movie. it is actually a character study of this couple who do this and why they do it and what is going on in their heads. specifically, the wife, emma booth, whose character is called evelyn, who she is and what has gone on in her past and why she is in this situation and does what she does. that stops itjust being about cardboard cutouts, just a gory movie. it's interesting because it is actually about the characters, these three—dimensional characters, the kidnappers and one of the girls they kidnap. they all have their own stories and real depth to them. it's really well made. this is the first film
6:26 am
from ben young and he really captures suburban australian life very well, disillusionment and a kitchen sink drama, really. it is brutal and tough to watch, of course, but very well made. ok, i hear you and that he might be a talent to watch but i am not sure i have the stomach for that. but girls trip, on the other hand, takes us back into the world of nice summer films. definitely back into the lighter territory! we've got queen latifah in this, jada pinkett smith, tiffany haddish, regina hall, four college friends who go to new orleans for the weekend and chaos ensues. have a look at the clip. terrific. i'm happy freaknik lisa is back. hey, right! too bad all that pent—up energy is going to waste. mmmm. 0h! what was that, sasha? what was that you were saying about pent—up energy? you texted him? idid. never doubt a boss. you get some, girl! # i slay, i slay, i slay all day #.
6:27 am
have a good evening, ladies. you, too. yes! is itfun? is it a bit silly? it is all of those things, definitely silly and funny. it has a sort of relentless joie de vivre, a bubbliness and bawdiness about it. it was pretty difficult to find a clip we could play out. what is most interesting about it, and this is what people are picking up on, its characters are four contemporary, successful, confident black woman and you do not have enough of those movies. not nearly enough. it is not an oscars movie, it's not an issues movie. tt is joyfully frothy and silly which is why it is refreshing. it is a bit predicatably clunky at times but this effervescence
6:28 am
carries it along. we will definitely see more movies like this. it has been a big hit in the states and this will change things. that is interesting because i was thinking how much i enjoyed hidden figures. then i'm thinking it's bad that i even think that because that is the last time i watched a film that focused on african american women. you think that and you think my goodness, the fact that even resonates with you shows what a paucity there is of that sort of film. absolutely, and hidden figures is great but it is the oscar—worthy serious movie. this is justjoyfully not like that. it is deliberately frothy and flimsy and everyone is having fun and that is the real novelty. it is there to give you a good time, as is for younger viewers, captain underpants, which mark was raving about last week. oh good, that is good to hear. this is out now. i could've chosen dunkirk but everyone has said how great dunkirk is, i do not
6:29 am
need to add to that, although i think it is. captain underpants, not a christopher nolan movie, i think it's fair to say. it's a dreamworks animation, based on the bestselling books. a couple of best mates hypnotise the school principal into believing he is this superhero called captain underpants. it is just zany, silly and nonstop. it is a bit knowing, has that knowing wink, that self—reflexive quality that adults like. if you just want some jokes about pants, though, there's loads ofjokes about pants. whoopee cushion humour, i read. i love that phrase. yes. the main antagonist is called professor poopypants. i mean, come on! yes, that says it all, that is all we need to know. for anyone who wants to stay in this week what movie have you picked out for us? i'm going to choose life which is a sci—fi film about astronauts bringing back a martian life form to earth. the life form starts out as a single cell organism but then grows into something much more intimidating. immediately when you watch this,
6:30 am
you're thinking alien and ridley scott and there's a lot of similarites. it is not as good but a lot of similarities. it's mainly set in a spaceship. i would say watch it forjake gyllenhaal, who's probably the main star, with rebecca ferguson and ryan reynolds. jake gyllenhaal always brings this melancholy to what he does. his character is really interesting, does and says some really interesting things. it is familiar as a science—fiction movie but jake gyllenhaal makes it something more than run—of—the—mill. ok, thank you very much. i like him as well. see you next week, james, good to have you with us. thank you very much indeed. that is it for this week. whatever you're seeing, enjoy. quite a variety this week. see you next week. hello. this is breakfast, with naga munchetty and ben thompson. coming up before seven, we'll get the weather with sarah. but first, a summary of this morning's main news.
6:31 am
president trump's aide has resigned after days of public infighting at the white house. mr trump has replaced his chief of staff reince priebus withjohn kelly, a former military general. one official said he'd been hired with the goal of bringing more discipline to the administration. mr priebus said he still supported the trump administration. this is about the president, it is about moving his agenda forward. i think he made a smart decision with generaljohn kelly and i think he will do a greatjob. i am looking forward to the future. i will always bea forward to the future. i will always be a donald trump fan. i am part of his team. i look forward to helping him achieve his goals and his agenda for the american people. we will talk about that later on in the programme. violence has broken out in east london during protests

to do it, and if they decide to do it, and things go well for them, they can do the best. but i would say the same about us. england's suffered an agonising defeat, in the wheelchair rugby league world cup final. leading by a couple of points, with just over two minutes remaining, hosts, france, scored to repeat their victory over england in the final four years ago. american, christie kerr, leads the women's scottish open after round two by one shot. the world number 14, who has two major championship wins to her name, hit three birdies and almost one eagle here on the 14th. england's georgia hall is the best place briton. she's level par with a share of seventh on the leaderboard. it's one of the most daring and spectacular sports of all, and this weekend, the top acrobats in the country are in liverpool, for the british rhythmic and acrobatic gymnastic championships. the team are fresh from picking up a gold medal at the world games last week, and i went to the new spelthorne gym in middlesex to find
6:40 am
out how what they do is humanly possible. defying the laws of gravity, in fa ct, defying the laws of gravity, in fact, defying all of those thoughts about what is possible for human beings. gymnasts working together with extraordinary courage, balance, and strength. it is like being in a forest of human beings. amazing shapes. acrobatics first came to the uk from russia in 1976 as a way of pushing to miss to new extremes. and crucially, allowing them to work together. it is incredible they can hold this form. it is spectacular to watch. it is a combination of acrobatics, dancing, gymnastics, everything, working as a team. it pushes them to the limit. they can
6:41 am
pushes them to the limit. they can push themselves acrobatically, with dance, mentally, physically. and it teaches them to work together. this clu b teaches them to work together. this club in middlesex has a new club to train in, and they are hoping it will increase their numbers to 3000, from preschool beginners to world champions. it is scary. there is trust involved. you need it for it to work. you are world champions. you make it look difficult. how hard is it? it is not too bad. how long have you been there? a long time. 40 minutes. 40 hours! 40 hours! 20 hours a week practising. it takes a lot of work to get to that standard. you can't do it half—heartedly. lot of work to get to that standard. you can't do it half-heartedly. you need to concentrate, notjust on the
6:42 am
top, but on the bottom. they have a head start getting to the olympics because they are already included in youth olympics. sorry i was not a more steady support. you are working asa team. more steady support. you are working as a team. you are seeing them bond. it is so much a group being. beginners have to start somewhere no matter what their rage is. —— age. it is so much fun. even a basic moves like the front circle. —— move. of course, it is all about trusting your team and your base, especially when it comes to the finale of the platform straight jump! oh, cheers, guys. yeah, sure,
6:43 am
laugh. they should have left you there! they did for a while! we will talk a lot more about it because we have so many questions, but we are moving on at the moment. there's been more upheaval in president trump's white house. yesterday, we told you how his new communications director had fallen out with his chief of staff. last night, the chief of staff was replaced. so, what's going on in the west wing? let's talk to jesse byrnes, from the us political website, the hill, based in washington dc. good morning to you. let's get through the details. it is quite confusing and changes all the time. the first question is the latest firing, resignation, call it what you will. was he pushed? did he jump? reince priebus says he
6:44 am
submitted his resignation to donald trump, but there has been a lot of internal turmoil. anthony scaramucci, this swaggering wall street financier, he hasjust scaramucci, this swaggering wall street financier, he has just come in. there has been a lot of conflict between him and reince priebus. they are calling this a resignation, but it is clearly reince priebus being forced out. as has become the norm, this was announced on twitter. do we know whether reince priebus was actually informed before the tweet from the president was published? he was arriving at andrews air force base just outside washington earlier that evening. that is when the tweet eventually went out. our understanding is they had a co—ordinated announcement coming but the impression based on seeing them on the tarmac, reince priebus
6:45 am
getting in a car with a couple of trump aides, that vehicle in the motorcade separating from the rest of the presidential vehicles, it gave the impression that maybe they we re gave the impression that maybe they were not as unified, they did not know they were on the same page, when that tweet was sent out. what do we know about the styles within the party and where everyone sits in the party and where everyone sits in the party? reince priebus is the former republican national committee chairman, so essentially he was the leader of the party itself and he has deep ties with paul ryan, speaker of the house, both are from wisconsin. he's kind of gone up through the ranks in the republican party so for him to enter the administration and serve in such an integral role as chief of staff, a lot of lawmakers, especially republicans still reticent about trump or disagree with him on so many issues, they thought that was a
6:46 am
reassuring sign to have reince priebus in such a senior role. now he's out there is a big question about who fills that void. john kelly, the retired 4—star marine general who is now the chief of staff, he is widely respected among republican lawmakers, but there's the question of how much control he will have over trump in that new position. it's interesting you talked about maybe some of the style of mr scaramucci and it's interesting because we've heard from him, he spoke to the bbc earlier this week, and it's about his style and how he wants to run things at the white house and that's the bit that maybe came into conflict with mr priebus. let's have a quick listen at what he told the bbc earlier this week. one of the things i can't stand about this town is the backstabbing that went on. where i'm from in the neighbourhood i came from we are front stabbers, we like to tell you exactly where we're from. that concept of front stabbers and back stabbers, he named mr priebus as one
6:47 am
of the people leaking information to the press and that's maybe why it's the press and that's maybe why it's the time to go he thought. is that right? the thing with front stabbing and backstabbing, it's interesting, he spoke with the new yorker and he floated the idea of leaking the idea priebus would be pushed out of the white house or would resign shortly. mixed messages there in terms of what he is trying to say and who he is trying to say it to. they do have total different styles. you would expect the chief of staff of any white house to be the one hiring and firing people. in this administration that playbook goes out the window. trump is ultimately the one who hires and fires and that's extended now it seems to scaramucci who has a broader control over notjust the scaramucci who has a broader control over not just the white house communications staff but broader control of the messaging and some of the strategy that trump is employing injust the first the strategy that trump is employing in just the first week he has the strategy that trump is employing
6:48 am
injust the first week he has been there. fascinating stuff. really good to speak to you. mr priebus yesterday said the president wanted to go ina yesterday said the president wanted to go in a different direction. all change at the white house. never ever makes us never ever makes us board and all change in the weather as well. sarah has taken a look. tell me it is all change because it's been very changeable? very changeable, that's right, changeable weather continuing. low pressure still in charge, so a bit of a sense of deja vu. charge, so a bit of a sense of deja vu. sunny spells, scattered showers and it is still relatively cool for the time of year but don't write the weather off this weekend, some sunshine around and this is how we start in bedford this morning. blue skies. many central parts seeing a lot of blue sky and sunshine. to the far south we have a weather front sitting in the english channel and that will bring rain at times to southern england in particular. further north, scattered showers for
6:49 am
north—western parts of scotland and northern northern ireland but further south some sunshine for the likes of belfast through the morning. one or two light showers p°ppin9 morning. one or two light showers p°pping up morning. one or two light showers popping up through parts of northern england and wales. down to the south—west there is some drier and brighter weather but the rain is pushing in from the south as we head through the morning and that rain also pushing into parts of kent and sussex. for the oval, the third test continues, should be dry through the morning but we have that increasing cloud bringing outbreaks of rain during the afternoon. the rain in southern england, a frontal system sitting in the english channel and shifting its way further north through the day so wet weather right across southern england into south wales. further north, sunny spells, scattered showers and temperatures today around 17 to 22. into the evening, as the rain in the south pushes further north and east we will see wet weather across all of england and wales as we go through the night. certainly won't have to water the garden tomorrow. further showers continuing in the far
6:50 am
north—west with temperatures overnight around 13 to 15. through the day tomorrow we lose the worst of the wet weather from the east and then a return to sunny spells, scattered blustery showers and maybe the odd rumble of thunder and temperatures again up to 22. low pressure staying in charge into the new working week so scattered showers in the north and west but dry by monday towards the south—east. dry by monday towards the south-east. thanks very much, we will speak to you in a short while. we'll be back with the headlines at 7am, it's time now for click. vegas, home to casinos. elvis, sort of. superfast knot—tying.
6:51 am
wide open spaces. limos. the strip. and this week, the largest hack—fest on the planet. if there's one week of stuff in vegas that isn't staying in vegas, it's this week's bsides, black hat and notorious def con gatherings. this is the week where hackers rub up against law enforcers and everyone peeks over each other‘s shoulders and networks. so, let's get straight into the action. and for our first act of the show. daniel here has got an extra piece of software running allowing him to hear what's being typed on the other end of a skype call. so how does it work? the software during a skype call learns how your keyboard sounds like and if you later during the call type something sensitive, like a password or e—mail, we can understand what you've typed using machine
6:52 am
learning algorithms. this is because each key has a unique fingerprint based on the position of the key on the keyboard. the suggested results from what our victim might be typing are listed on the screen. as you can see, it's spotted every word except one but when asked to choose the words to make the most likely sentence, it's not so on the money. so, this is scott helme. he is notjust our victim, he's also a security researcher who is here to keep click on track with a hacker‘s view of the conferences for the next couple of episodes. hello, scott. hello. what do you think? so, the technology is still quite young. it took a bit of setup to make this work but technology advances quite quickly and things that are difficult today will probably be easy tomorrow. we have seen some things like this before as well. i looked at a hack recently where they could measure the vibrations in a crisp packet to record my voice.
6:53 am
so i think in the future, things and technologies like this could be quite bad because it's going to allow people to extract a lot more information from our devices. wow, sobering thoughts. it seems like the hackers are always going to find new and interesting ways to get inside our computers. it was me and two other friends, just a bit of fun. i manipulate people's feelings, thoughts. i started getting bullied. we tried to break into our school's network. we could control people's screens, change passwords. i got arrested for misuse of computer act, 1990, section three. i can't name the company but they lost a lot of money. this is definitely a way to get ahead of the curve and to stop anyone from possibly taking a misinformed choice as to the direction of their life. this is the uk's first
6:54 am
reboot camp for hackers. the first seven through the doors, aged 16—20, all intend to change their ways, so we've agreed to keep their identities secret. rehab includes spotting moments when they might be tempted to cross the line of what's legal and what's not. that looks like i could get everyone's details. your parents will not have any idea how you do what you do. it will be like magic. solomon gilbert was caught as a teenage offender. now he's the one giving the lecture is, in between tackling cybercrime himself. i was 17 years old. i was getting drawn into making my own malicious code, making my own exploits, stealing things like credit card information, data base information. i wouldn't do anything with them, but it ended up with me getting
6:55 am
kicked out of school and arrested and looked into by the counterterrorism intelligence unit. what were the key moments that changed your path? everyone in the cyber security industry has one person that they've met that's gone, well, you're very talented at this, let's move you to do it as a job. cyber security challenge uk has set up a capture the flag competition so that teenagers can show off their skills. several large companies are here to talk future job opportunities. uk hasn't got enough people to protect itself. businesses, the nation, individual accounts, we all need protecting and that's why we exist. we need to find these people. they're there. we know they're there, we need to find them. these offenders know this is a second chance, one they didn't realise they were so well qualified for. i was more interested in the dark side, back when i was young. i wasn't really looking at the good side.
6:56 am
the dark side was mainly just attacks, attacks, attacks, not thinking about defending. well, now i know that it exists, it sounds like something that i'd really, really like to go into because you get the same, like, rush, the same excitement, but you're doing it for fun, still, but it's legal and you get paid. it's like every kind of benefit. humans have been using handprints to identify themselves for a very long time. these ones here, the hands across time just outside las vegas, in red rock, are hundreds of years old. they're some of the earliest examples of native americans showing their identity. kind of like a signature. in recent years we've started
6:57 am
to use our hands to identify us again, and dan's been finding out how secure they might be. at bristol robotics lab, they're taking an interest in every detail. now, if you're sensitive to flashing lights, look away now. is that more secure, then, than just using your fingerprint? certainly. with a fingerprint, it's a small region of the hand. obviously with this system we're getting the whole surface and that, combined with the vein structure, just add an extra layer of security. do you think this could be spoofed? i think it's unlikely. research recently showed the ability to extract fingerprints or handprints off celebrities from a distance. from photos? from photos. so, you could use that to generate a 3—d surface but you still wouldn't have the vein structure on the back of the hand. that would be very
6:58 am
difficult to hack. in chicago, some people are already using their palm and to pay for things. it's being called naked payment. no cards, cash or phones. from september, tsb will be the first bank in europe to adopt retina scan technology as a way of accessing online bank accounts, although initially customers will need a samsung galaxy s8 handset to use the technology. but is it secure? in may, the chaos computer club in germany posted this video, fooling the s8‘s iris scanner using a photograph and a contact lens. tsb and samsung are hoping that others won't go to that sort of trouble. at the cylab biometrics centre in pittsburgh, they've developed a system that can
6:59 am
identify the irises of people moving in a crowd from up to 12 metres away. but if the eyes don't have it, the face just might. back at bristol robotics lab, this 3—d face scanner is using a technique they've developed called photometric stereo. two invisible lights flash at high speed, allowing the camera to capture the orientation, shape and texture of what it sees. so far, it has a 95% accuracy rate but that's good enough to attract some major investment. they are working with cubic, which develops the oyster card, contactless payment system used in london's trains and buses. it's being part funded by the british government to innovate gateless technologies, allowing passengers to simply walk into a station and onto a train. you can imagine, if you can get rid of the gate line in a place
7:00 am
like victoria station, there's a massive potential for increasing throughput. so we ran quite an interesting project for them, which they are now installing at their laboratory in salford and the aim is to move it on to the underground so that the system will recognise people and you get rid of the gates and it will allow people to go through without any impediments. now, this is a is a prototype but we have been told that the system will recognise even a pair of glasses. so, let's see if it knows who i am now. look at that, you can see my name come up right there. it could make your life so easy. just walk around, the face is the key to doing everything you want to do in the modern world. and just to double—check, i've tried to fool it with this guy.
