length to save chicks. and in half an hour we've a full sports bulletin — including belgium's 5—2 win against tunisia at the world cup. good afternoon and welcome to bbc news. two years after the uk voted to leave the eu in a referendum, thousands of people have been protesting in central london to demand what they are calling the "people's vote", on the outcome of the negotiations with the eu. it all comes as the german engineering firm siemens, which employs 15,000 people in the uk, called on the government to remain closely aligned with the single market. senior cabinet ministers have again said the uk is prepared to walk away from the negotiations,
5:02 pm
rather than accept a bad deal. there's also been a counter—march. also in the capital, demonstrating in support of a no—deal brexit, in what's being called a uk unity and freedom march. in a moment, we'll report live from central london — first, our political correspondent nick eardley reports. two years to the day since the brexit vote, visions of the future are still very different. campaigners in central london today calling for a vote for any final deal the government reaches with brussels. there has been two years since the referendum. the government is no clearer about what it wants. it is internally divided, let alone in argument with the european union, the country is very likely to end up in a bad place. we have got to stop the mess and the best way of doing it is that, when we know what the outcome is, that the public have the final say. businesses are expressing views as well. yesterday, airbus said it
5:03 pm
would reconsider its future in the uk if there is no deal. bmw called for more clarity. and today, there was this reaction to borisjohnson‘s call for a full british brexit. it is time to get away from slogans for british brexit going into combat with europe. it is incredibly unhelpful, and what we need to do now is to get closer with our european partners and work out what a realistic, pragmatic brexit is. the foreign secretary says the government needs to get on with it and avoid a deal that is soft, yielding and infinitely long. others say to get that the pm must be prepared to walk away if she does not get the right deal. the prime minister has always said that nothing is agreed until everything is agreed and that no deal would be better than a bad deal. i think it is essential that, as we enter the next phase of the negotiations, that european union understands that and believes it. labour says no deal would be catastrophic and, as campaigners say the electorate should make the final decision, a reminder,
5:04 pm
if ever one was needed, that different people see brexit very differently. nick eardley, bbc news. we can speak to our correspondentjon donnison, who's in central london. has been following the march today. the clouds —— the crowd is largely dispersed now. listening to what the people have said, listening to the speeches in parliament square, what do those attending this march hope it will do in terms of making a difference to the... what happens now and the point at which the uk leads the eu? i think they want to build upa leads the eu? i think they want to build up a belief throughout the country that brexit according to them is not get a done deal. richmond is due to lead the european union in nine months‘ time. —— britain. but certainly for the
5:05 pm
people here, they believe it is been handled badly by the government. and they think that the people should have a final say on any eventual deal that theresa may comes up with with the other 27 eu partners and that the people should have a vote on that. the organisers are keen to not call it a second referendum because they do not see it as a repeat or a direct repeat of the two dozen 16 referendum. but in affect it would be another referendum specifically on whether britain should approve that deal that theresa may may or may not come up with. does you talk to anyone there who had voted to leave in the referendum two years ago and change their view? i was very keen to find someone their view? i was very keen to find someone who is in that position but idid not someone who is in that position but i did not speak to anyone. i was asking most of the people i spoke to voted remain at the time. and that few had only been reinforced since then. a lot of people said they
5:06 pm
didn‘t know all the details, they didn‘t know all the details, they did not know all the information or what it would involve. and now they say two years on they have a much better picture. 0ne say two years on they have a much better picture. one of the interesting things we‘re today was we heard from politicians we heard a labour‘s david mamet, vince agree —— vince cable from the leave —— lib dems. we also heard from ordinary people. we had a dr, a student. certainly the organisers of this rally are very keen to make it not seem rally are very keen to make it not seem like an elitist demand coming from london and are keen to say this was people coming from all over the country. they bust people and and they say that brexit is not a done deal. —— bussed people and. they say that brexit is not a done deal. -- bussed people and. what was the reaction to ian fox and his comments and that they could still walk away but no deal potentially?
5:07 pm
people here unsurprisingly think that would be sort of madness. they think that would be a terrible situation to come to. and interestingly, we don‘t really know what will happen if that comes about. we don‘t really know what sort of circumstance would arise that would lead to another referendum. because at the moment you have both the conservatives and labour both saying that is a bad idea. so i guess the scenario here that people here envisaging are that if theresa may comes up with a deal, goes to parliament say in the autumn and parliament does not back it, then they would say that would be then they would say that would be the time for another referendum. thank you very much. john donna sent in central london. and remember you can keep up to date with every twist and turn of the brexit negotiations, and the political ramifications by going to bbc.co.uk/politics. the french president emmanuel macron
5:08 pm
has said he favours financial sanctions for eu states which refuse to take migrants that have proven asylum status. he was speaking on the eve of summit on immigration in brussels tomorrow, on the migration dispute that is still troubling europe. mr macron said countries should not be allowed ‘massively voice their national selfishness on migrant issues — as he put it. — while benefiting from eu membership. meanwhile, the maritime authorities in malta have asked the charity—run rescue ship, aquarius, to help a boat in trouble off the coast of tunisia. last week neither malta nor italy would allow the vessel to dock, after it rescued 630 migrants off the coast of libya. italy has since banned charity and foreign flagged ships docking, if migrants are onboard.
5:09 pm
the two main candidates in turkey‘s presidential elections have drawn large crowds to their final rallies, on the last day of campaigning before sunday‘s vote. the centre—left opposition candidate, muharrem in—je, is challenging president recep tayyip erdogan, who has dominated turkish politics for the past 15 years. from istanbul mark lowen reports. turkey‘s opposition has finally found its voice. for 15 years it has been fractured, unable to challenge president erdogan, but then came muharrem ince, a fiery centre—left man of the people reaching beyond his party‘s elitist image and drawing enormous crowds. this man is giving a powerful turkish president the battle of his political life. he told supporters he would fight for the working class, challenging mr erdogan to a tv debate which he has so far refused. polls suggest mr ince could force the president into a second round run—off after the election tomorrow and with other opposition parties, win a majority in parliament.
5:10 pm
this is the half of turkey that feels mr erdogan has destroyed democracy with his clamp—downs and hostility to the west. confidence is growing despite the fear of vote rigging. but the pro—erdogan side still passionately believes in him. conservative, pious turks revere him as their saviour in once secular—dominated turkey. they vaunt the bridges and hospitals he‘s built and they talk about western plot to ruin their country. the odds are still stacked in mr erdogan‘s favour, 90% of the media is pro—government. the kurdish presidential candidate is in prison and opposition posters are vastly outnumbered and torn down, but for the first time in 15 years, turkey mightjust decide that the erdogan magic has run out. here, a fire has torn through a warehouse
5:11 pm
in leyton in east london. black smoke could be seen billowing from an industrial estate in 0rient way this morning, with more than 100 firefighters and 20 engines responding to emergency calls. the pentagon has cancelled two joint marine—training exercises with south korea. it follows the decision earlier in the week, to suspend a majorjoint—military exercise between the two countries which was planned for august. the pentagon said the move was part of the agreement reached between president trump and the north korean leader, kim jong—un, in singapore earlier this month. 0ur correspondent sophie long is in seoul. when donald trump announced he would be stopping joint military exercises in his press conference after the june 12 summit, it came as a surprise to some people and particularly the language used. he called them provocative, expensive war games. these joint military exercises have always been referred to by the us and south korea in the past as defensive measures necessary to maintain military preparedness. in terms of the statement we heard
5:12 pm
from the pentagon today, we heard that the us defence secretary james mattis had decided to postpone indefinitely two korean american exchange programme exercises due to take place over the next few months. this comes after of course last week we heard that operation freedom guardian had been cancelled. that‘s one of the three majorjoint military exercises which takes place in south korea every year. in terms of south korean reaction, i‘m actually standing outside the former north korean labour party building, a number of young south koreans were here today for a music festival called the dmz peace train festival and many of them we spoke to are full of hope. and hope concessions like this and events like this cultural event which took place so close to the demilitarised zone will help to maintain this momentum we seem to have currently towards proper lasting peace. however, older people, more conservative leaning people, are much more sceptical.
5:13 pm
for them, they say we have been here before and they want to see some proper concessions from north korea. in terms of official south korean reaction, we heard a statement from the south korean defence ministry earlier this afternoon and they said they confirmed this announcement from the pentagon and also went on to add there will be additional measures should north korea follow suit with productive cooperation. i think certainly at this stage, the ball now is very much in north korea‘s park. the ethiopian prime minister, abiy ahmed, has condemned a grenade blast at a political rally he‘d been addressing in the capital, addis ababa. he called it an unsuccessful attack by forces who did not want to see a united ethiopia. the authorities say one person was killed and more than 130 injured. the bbc‘s emmanuel igunza was at the rally when it happened. these are the scenes as people
5:14 pm
scrambled for safety moments after the explosion. the attack was just metres away from the podium where the prime minister had addressed thousands of his supporters. emergency services rushed to help dozens emergency services rushed to help d oze ns of emergency services rushed to help dozens of people injured as the full scale of the blast sunken. these —— this angry mob is seen here beating ofa this angry mob is seen here beating of a woman who dick lane was cutting an explosive. some of those injured in that explosion had been brought to this health facility. they‘re not being taken care of by emergency staff who are scrambled to help those in need. we know so far is that the explosion happened just immediately after the prime minister had finished his speech and was. —— i was right behind them and the party where he was. he was very safe and quickly taken away by his
5:15 pm
security officers. and in the last few hours he is given an address to the nation saying he is safe. the prime minister‘s described this as a well—planned attack. even as please announced they had arrested severin that several people in connection with the attack. no one has yet claimed spots ability. —— seven —— several people. dozens showed up to this protest and they promised readers in the country. after more than three years of deadly antigovernment protests, the premier has spread millions with his message of love and conciliation. but today‘s attack shows that morning to be done to heal a deeply divided country. the headlines on bbc news. thousands of people march through london to demand a vote on the final deal on the uk‘s departure from the eu. senior cabinet ministers stress the uk is still prepared to walk away from brexit talks without a deal.
5:16 pm
an explosion rocks a stadium in zimbabwe where president emmerson mnangagwa was addressing thousands of people — officials say he wasn‘t injured. new evidence of the devastating effect of plastic pollution on wildlife has been recorded by the bbc. a team filming on a remote island for the bbc one documentary drowning in plastic revealed sea birds there starving to death because there stomachs were so full of plastic that there was no room for food. —— their stomachs. 0ur science correspondent victoria gill reports. flying through the ocean in search of food, but these sea birds are all too often finding and eating pieces of plastic. tens of thousands of flesh—footed shearwaters nest on this remote island hundreds of kilometres off the east coast of australia. but even here plastic is killing them. and another.
5:17 pm
scientists are finding young birds with so much of it in their stomachs that there is no room for food. these chicks have starved to death. but the researchers stepped in to save them and this bbc documentary crew filmed up close as the birds had their stomachs flushed out. 0h! it was shocking to see just how much would come out a chick. i mean, we saw 90 pieces come out of one of the chicks on the second night but the scientists were telling us they sometimes pull out as much as 200, 250 pieces of plastic out of either dead birds orfrom the regurgitation. it is just one example of how our discarded plastic is damaging marine wildlife around the world, an issue that was thrown into sharp focus by the bbc series blue planet ii. efforts are under way to stem the tide of plastic. here in england‘s south coast, sea bins have been installed that can suck up half a tonne of plastic waste per year. there‘s a plastic bottle there,
5:18 pm
that‘s fairly obvious, and a coffee cup lid. but there‘s also some smaller pieces of plastic. i think that‘s the lid off an aerosol and there‘s two cigarette butts there. there are also plastic fibres. but some parts of the ocean now contain more pieces of plastic than plankton so scientists say we all need urgently to change how we use and dispose of what has become a floating menace. victoria gill, bbc news. i‘m joined now via webcam by richard harrington, from the marine conservation society. richard could to have you with us. the society has been involved in a very long time in looking at the health of the marine environment and the creatures that live within it. but i guess it is the impact of plastics in the seas and oceans that have given a new energy to this campaign stop it but that is right.
5:19 pm
yes, to be honest. —— campaign stop it but that is right. yes, to be honest. -- we have run on for 2h years out up as our 25th year. we have seen year after year that the quantities and density of rubbish building on our beaches. and density of rubbish building on our beaches. anna becomes demotivating. —— and it becomes demotivating. we do see signs especially from blue planet two was a big moment for us. and we hope now that we will see a decline from all the material getting into the ocean. —— blue planet ii. what of those positive signs that you have seen? for example, bringing in a small charge of plastic bags. just a couple of yea rs of plastic bags. just a couple of years the data we showed —— record to show problem was led to that charge. and we have seen a decline in number of plastic bags wash up in oui’ in number of plastic bags wash up in our beaches within the year of the charge come in. that shows that you can makea charge come in. that shows that you can make a difference. there has been a causation recently by
5:20 pm
government looking at whether you can use taxes or levy on charges on other materials as well. and we think that plastic, the single use plastic that euterpe once sensor away, put in the bin straightaway and only goes to landfill that has no other use, it‘s far too cheap. if there was some way of making that expensive to manufacturers so they invested in other ways providing food to you, that would make a big difference. the bbc has watched its plastics swatch campaign today. —— plastics swatch campaign today. —— plastics watch. what sort of campaign following on from blue planet ii, this certainly seems to bea planet ii, this certainly seems to be a big momentum building up behind her and get people to increase their awareness and what they need to do about it. these are simple things that the bbc suggests that people do. little things like foregoing that ready meal or that meal deal for lunch and take your own pack a
5:21 pm
lunch with you without wrapping it up lunch with you without wrapping it up in plastic. simply using reusable bottles a nd up in plastic. simply using reusable bottles and set up by water and a bottles and set up by water and a bottle that is just not necessary and etc. congratulations to the bbc asa and etc. congratulations to the bbc as a public service broadcaster for putting that message out after leading the way within his own business that you do not have seen lee‘s coffee cups and various other things within the organisation. congratulations for that. i must say blue planet ii was a real example of really good public service broadcasting. it has really made a difference and we have moved on from that now. just as an organisation, and the conservation society we are seeing more people coming onto her beach. we have been asked to read a book about plastic and that is available in book shops or not. and we are running a plastics challenge injuly. we are running a plastics challenge in july. that was my next point actually. do tell us more about that. it is the fourth year, isn‘t it? that's a scheme where we ask you to try and give of plastic for the
5:22 pm
entirety of the month. that‘s not practical so it took to see how would consumers stop using single use plastic for that month. we‘ve heard from a few hundred people from a few far—sighted people if he is good to many thousands. —— it has grown from a few hundred to a few thousand. people have been influenced by blue planet ii. we are taught by plastics in the uk and thatis taught by plastics in the uk and that is hopefully lead to more actions. do you think this is having any influence in other countries where the debate hasn‘t evolved as much? it really is. and there are real signs and countries as far as kenya to america and australia too many others where real action is being taken to reduce the availability of free single use plastic. it becomes a problem to deal with rather than a solution to help people in their daily lives. yes, i think things are happening. i do think we do as western nations
5:23 pm
need to help out other countries who may not have waste collection infrastructure in the first place. they need better recycling facilities. this certainly more that the united kingdom can do. in a leading position to help things along. but guess to be honest, the photos you have shown showing sea birds being affected by plastics are truly shocking and depressing. but there are signs that we can really turn this around. richard harrington from the marine conservation society. thank you for talking to us. and you can find easy ways to make a difference and share what you are doing at bbc. co. uk/plasticswatch. also on twitter. british troops have arrived in mali this week, ahead of three raf helicopters which willjoin a growing international military presence in the sahara desert, to counter the increasing threat of terror groups linked to so—called islamic state and al-qaeda. human trafficking across
5:24 pm
the southern stretch of the sahara known as the sahel, is funding the islamists who are growing in strength. mali is now home to the un‘s most deadly peacekeeping mission and the us recently lost troops in neighbouring niger. 0ur africa correspondent alastair leithead travelled to the region and sent this special report. the sahara used to be a big empty space on the map. but now this desert the size of america is being filled up by foreign armies and jihadist terror groups. convoys are coming under attack from both al-qaeda and islamic state fighters. roadside bombs are being used to deadly effect. this is what‘s left of timbuktu airport after the french and united nations base there was hit in april by three suicide car bombs, mortars and foot soldiers strapped with explosives.
5:25 pm
a foreign military presence creates a target, as it did in afghanistan, but this is about fighting a war abroad rather than at home. other european drones and aircraft are in mali, part of the world‘s most dangerous un peacekeeping mission. the raf is coming to a place where both germany and holland have lost helicopters. britain already has a presence in the sahel. this training exercise taught african nations how western armies work and, for the visitors, it was a chance to find partners who will fight foreign terrorfor them. with little will to send ground troops, our special forces are training local soldiers to be the boots on the ground facing the enemy. a stable and secure africa really does have importance to us in europe and particularly in the uk.
5:26 pm
there is a direct link with increased demographics, lack ofjobs, that will affect the migration issue and, therefore, the security bit. the many migrant trails heading through the desert are firmly linked to the islamist groups, making them money and giving them cover to travel freely. and america is rolling out resources across africa. this multi—million pound runway is one of many bases often secret that project us power across the sahara. islamist fighters ambushed four us soldiers in niger... many americans didn‘t even know their troops were here untilfour were killed by islamic state in niger. the argument is it‘s better to fight here and now before the groups grow and spread. certainly, with the collapse of the physical caliphate in iraq
5:27 pm
and syria, the load of foreign fighters that have moved to the caliphate are likely to go somewhere and, if they come here, that could be devastating to the security situation across north africa. and into this mess step thousands of un peacekeepers, struggling to find a peace to keep. a heavily protected convoy risked roadside bombs to go and meet community members. blue helmets give far less protection these days. but the elders can‘t speak openly. the islamists are already here. the kids don‘t play football, radios are silent and secular schools have been forced to close. radical extremist groups are operating in this whole area, but it‘s much more complicated than that. there are centuries of tension between different ethnic groups, unemployment is high, the economy is failing and there‘s no government in these areas because of the violence. that is the space that the regional
5:28 pm
and international forces are stepping into. for centuries, mali‘s mud mosques and rich history brought tourists to a place known for its religious tolerance. that‘s all changed. a fast—growing population, worsening poverty and climate change are all playing into the extremists‘ hands. britain has joined a tough new front of the war on terror. an explosion at a political rally in zimbabwe has injured the country‘s vice president and a senior member of the governing party, zanu—pf. the blast struck close to the president, emmerson mnangagwa, who had just finished speaking to supporters at a stadium in the opposition stronghold of bulawayo. he was unhurt. but these pictures show the
5:29 pm
zimbabwean vice president >> pete: from the bias. and a memberfrom the national armour being —— national army being structured away. my colleague chloe tilley spoke to our correspondent in harare, shingai nyoka there is is —— little information about the explosion itself. but a little while ago he showed up on state television and essentially said he was unharmed and he blinked at this explosion on the people he says have previously tried to assassinate him. he said six times before. but he says there will be no witchhunt as a result of this. but that the government will try to get to the bottom of what has happened. really at this stage there is little information about what exactly happened. what type of explosion was used and it is onlyjust the president believing it came from his enemies within the party. there were some earlier reports saying that
5:30 pm
some earlier reports saying that some of his staff and members of the government had been injured. are we clear whether that is the case? yes, the presidential spokesperson of emmerson mnangagwa himself has said that one of his vice presidents has a sustained leg injuries as a result of the explosion. we understand that the other vice president‘s wife also sustained some form of injury. emmerson mnangagwa was at the hospitals should visit them a short while ago. it is not clear how many people have been injured as a result of this. but there was some serious injuries and many of them, and those allies close to him. reporting from harare. the time is not exactly half past five. let‘s get the weather with helen. hello there. for most it‘s been another lovely sunny day. 2425 degrees in the south. and class
5:31 pm
in the north we have had a little bit of rain and drizzle. but that should clear ways to get through the evening. it‘s could be quite cool for scotland and northern ireland in particular. temperatures is trying to hold up more for the south. but there‘s still quite a cool night. as he start sunday morning, yes you may need... temperatures will respond to this strong june sunshine. perhaps macleod got here in the southeast limiting the temperature in the low 20s. —— more cloud. and conscious there‘ll be more sunshine for the mainland of scotland and northern ireland. we started to see the temperatures into the low 20s. it is a strong sunshine and very high levels of uv as well. at that he is with us to stay as we head into the new week. bye—bye. hello.
5:32 pm
this is bbc news, our latest headlines. thousands of people march through london to demand a vote on the final deal on the uk‘s departure from the eu. the will of the people it still a proper and formal referendum. where we know what the brexit deal means. we can keep going into this absolute disaster without stopping and thinking whether we really want to do this. senior cabinet ministers stress the uk is still prepared to walk away from brexit talks without a deal. an explosion rocks a stadium in zimbabwe where president emmerson mnangagwa was addressing thousands of people. officials say he wasn‘t injured. new evidence of the devastating impact of plastic pollution on sea birds, with scientists going to extreme length to save chicks. all the sport now with hollie. hi there. beginning with the world
5:33 pm
cup, i presume. absolutely. where else would we start with a day of action we have had so far. i have to say i reckon england fans may have been watching belgium‘s relentless victory over tunisia with their eyes wide open. that 5—2 win puts belgium on the verge of a place in the knockout stages, from group g, ahead of their game against england on thursday. well‘s speak to 0lly foster who was at the game in moscow. a relentless game. plenty of celebrating from the belgian fans, and they have plenty to cheer about. they‘re running riot in group g.. it had to be an early kick—off before the late shift started. here in moscow, so i pinpointed that one instead cannot get to that one kums they could. the highest scoring match at the world cup so far,
5:34 pm
belgium five tunisias. premier league faces in there as well. the belgians are really looking like they could go a long way in this tournament. ben croucher reports. every now and then the world cup gives you an unexpected treat. we may not have been expecting belgium against tunisia to deliver it, but within five minutes be present started. belgium get get a penalty which eden hazard duly dispatched. the pirelli‘s influence extended to belgium second two. romelu lukaku! the dan kemp on giving. not 20 minutes old when dealing the only player on the field who plays in belgium, butler. still romelu lukaku found space to restore belgium‘s two—goal advantage and move level with bernado sb torment‘s top scorer. the nation needed to look at this game a little differently. the best angle came from sobhi and try as they might, tunisia just couldn‘t keep eden hazard down. fantastic
5:35 pm
goal, hazard. he‘s got two as well, belgium have four. they could've had plenty more as well. hazard‘s chelsea team—mate made missing look simpler than scoring on more than one occasion. third time lucky though, right? at last, he can make it five. in a thoroughly convincing victory. if belgium's three form was worrying, their defensive lapse cause for optimism. this effort was never going to be more than consolation though, as belgium with two wins and eight goals have also patient almost wrapped up. instructor, bbc news. —— ben grubbs her. it's it‘s really good for us to be able to adapt to different types of games especially in a division like the world cup, and thenjust at especially in a division like the world cup, and then just at that desire to finding the solutions in each game. we had to suffer at spells, but then when we were at full flow going forward, we look really sharp. as many things that we need to keep doing well. but his
5:36 pm
qualification after two games, and you cannot ask more from this group of players. we were just sitting a couple rows back from the belgian dugout. roberto spent the whole man standing in the technical area, even when it was absolutely belting down the killer weather here in moscow today. we had a massive hailstorm as well. it is very hard, and glenn have arrived for their group g game against panama. —— england. tomorrow. gareth southgate‘s been speaking about his group of players making history. we will hear from him in sports de laet on bbc news in the next hour. just that one injury concern, dele alli not expected to start. we will have a full england update and sports day, like i say. let‘s get back to the action. group f. let‘s get back to the action. group f, well, it could be crushed on for germany. they space sweden a little bit early —— a little bit later in
5:37 pm
salty. that is the final of the three matches we have later today. depending what happens in the match right now, germany will have to probably beat sweden, if it stays like this. let‘s show you what happened between mexico and south korea. this one is in rostov. mexico took the lead through a penalty. another var penalty. they said yes, that was a deliberate handball, a bit harsh. carlos vela made it 1—0 to the mexicans. in the last couple minutes to to retire on the break. mexico who overpower the germans with their flair and speed on the break, and he scored his 50th goalfor on the break, and he scored his 50th goal for mexico. on the break, and he scored his 50th goalfor mexico. as it stands, germany will have to beat sweden, u nless germany will have to beat sweden, unless the south koreans can somehow turn this around against mexico. but it hasn‘t looked very likely at all. you know we are up to 14 penalties now. we have had to today. 14 and we are onlyjust over halfway through
5:38 pm
the group stages. in brazil, there we re the group stages. in brazil, there were 13 penalties in total. you got to put that down to var. all these penalties being awarded after going to the man upstairs. that is another one of the stories that is emerging here at the world cup. lots of goals, no goalless draws and lots of penalties. i will be back with you in sports they at 6:30pm. thank for that. see you there. from moscow to sydney where ireland‘s incredible season continued with their first three—match series win down under since 1979. for the irish, some frayed nerves during that final deciding test at the allianz stadium withjoe schmidt‘s side hanging on until the final whistle as patrick gearey reports. winning on the other side of the world is rugby‘s great test. the last time ireland won a series in the southern hemisphere, neither of these players nor this song had been conceived. it takes some effort to reverse that sort of record. but
5:39 pm
this irish team never relax in that department. rumbling through australia, cj stander, the scorer. that right and his madcap interviews to collective work, but the wallabies found space for individual brilliance, kicking collect, express and first class. he delivered. just and first class. he delivered. just a point between the sides now. the situation was puts a premium on a player likejohnny saxton. who knows it‘s over as soon as he has kicked it. that, his fifth penalty, no other irish men or women were as calm, so imagine the emotional frenzy and sydney as australia mounted one last attack. but the pass was off, the time was up. ireland, champions of the north, make history in the south. meanwhile, england are playing south africa in their test in cape town. england will be hoping to avoid south africa sealing a clean—sweep here after their victories in the last two tests. it‘s been awful conditions at newlands but south africa have scored the first try in the last few minutes. england still ahead though thanks
5:40 pm

fifth pole of his career. there was little for the home fans to cheer about as their main hope romain grosjean crashed in the final session. he wasn‘t hurt though. novak djokovic‘s return to form and fitness continues at queens, as he booked his place in the tomorrow‘s final. it was a straight sets win for the former world number one againstjeremy chardy. the pair have met now 11 times, and chardy is yet to win a single set against djokovic. he‘ll play last year‘s wimbledon runner up marin cilic in tomorrow‘s final. it‘s been a while, that i have played for a title. so this is definitely a very special moment for me. considering what i‘ve been through in the last year or so. so it‘s just a great occasion. meanwhile, roger federer is one match away from winning a tenth title at halle.

5:43 pm
releases is mark kermode. good to see you again, mark, what have you been watching? very interesting week, we have maquia, a visually stunning anime. in the fade, a socio—political thriller with a gripping performance by diane kruger. and 0verboard, the remake no one was asking for. i‘m looking forward to that, but let‘s start with something i literally know nothing about. i know you‘re a big fan of animation, tell us more. i knew nothing about this when i saw it. it opens on wednesday of next week, maquia: when the promised flower blooms, and it‘s written and directed by mari 0kada. the story is a mythical cloud of celestial weavers who don‘t appear to age beyond teenage years. their idyllic land is invaded by marauders, by mortals.
5:44 pm
one of them is kidnapped and forced to marry a mortal king. another discovers a mortal child, young baby who was wrenched from his mother‘s arms, and decides to look after the moral child. but she herself won‘t grow up. so it‘s a story about mothers and sons, mortality and immortality, and it‘s also a film in which we have spectacular visual set pieces and very small, intimate scenes, one of which is here. so on the one hand you have that, and on the other hand you have these extraordinairy visual set pieces with huge cities in the sky with marauding action, flying beasties. the film has a 15 certificate for fairly strong violence. and what i liked about it was i knew nothing of the story beforehand. it worked because it‘s very, very over crank and its emotions, their all turned up to 11. it‘s score is absolutely tugging at the heartstrings. and one of the things it‘s about, it‘s about mothers and children, but also that crying and trying not to cry.
5:45 pm
there are few things more cinematically winning than the sight of somebody saying they won‘t cry, particularly when you‘re in a genre where that can be amplified. it‘s not up there on a level with your name for me, which i still think was really wonderful. it caused such a stir a couple years ago. i thought this was really interesting, i didn‘t know anything about the story beforehand, it had real tenderness and certain moments that are visually breathtaking. it‘s a little bit narratively contorted every now and then, but i was never bored. it has several endings like return of the king. it's it‘s like oh, it‘s in the now, no, it‘s ending in, it‘s ending again. i was swept a long way because it seemed passionate and had a real intensity to it. actually when you go to the pictures, that‘s what you want, something that engages you emotionally, and it did that. i‘m quite a blubberer. so i‘m already thinking that is going to make me cry. i think crying in the cinema is one of life‘s greatest joys. and clearly it is to be seen on a large screen, because it‘s so beautiful
5:46 pm
to look at? i thought so, i saw projected on a big—screen, and i thought that was how i wanted to see it. but when it comes out on dvd, i will argue... i‘m nothing if not inconsistent. now in the fade, i‘m really fascinated by. it made quite a hit at cannes, it got the golden globe for best foreign film. it did, golden globe for best foreign language. and diane kruger won the best actress award at cannes back in 2017. the story is — she is a mother and wife in germany, there is a neo—nazi attack in which she loses people very close to her. and the film then is about the way in which the legal response is firstly to turn on the community that have been attacked, and the way in which the legal system attempts and perhaps fails to deal with what has happened to her. now on one hand, it‘s an arthouse movie, a serious sociopolitical thriller with a brilliant performance by diane kruger. 0n the other hand, it has one foot in the kind of revenge exploitation genre that dates back to death wish. if you think of something
5:47 pm
like kelly reichart‘s night moves over here and death wish over here, it‘s somewhere in the middle. the film itself, i have to say, is somewhat uneven. but her performance is so convincing that you forgive it for the things that are perhaps less structurally convincing about it. for example, during the court room scenes, which are shot with a gliding camera, it‘s one of those depictions of the legal system in which i struggle to remember a more reptilian performance by a defence attorney. he was literally doing a hissable villain, as the legal system lets her down. as i said, we seen a version of the story before, but she is brilliant and is absolutely nothing to hold it together. worth seeing it for diane kruger will stop 0verboard, which i rememberfrom my teenage years, did they need to remake this? no! end of review, that‘s it. i can‘t think of anyone crying
5:48 pm
out, asking if anyone remembers that goldie hawn— kurt russell film that we all kind of enjoyed up to a point, let‘s do it again. but this time it‘s gender swap, so in the original, kurt russell convinces her that she is his wife. she‘s a millionaire amnesiac, and he wants to get back at her so he convinces her she‘s his wife. but this time, anna faris goes to clean somebody‘s yacht, they are horrible to her, and she gets pushed overboard. and then the man becomes an amnesiac, and she figures that to get revenge on him, she will tell him that he‘s her husband. i see what you‘re doing. here‘s a clip. is any of this ringing a bell? nope, nothing! we dated every time i docked! we would get frozen yoghurt and watch the sunset over the playa tortugas. that's where we fell in love! sounds like you're a romantic, leo. look, i admit there are many things i've forgotten. but from the depths of my soul, i know i'm not
5:49 pm
married to this woman. unless i see some real proof, i'm getting a slice of pie from the cafeteria. good luck, crazy lady. wait... honey? i didn't want to say this because i know it embarrasses you. but you have a tattoo of a cartoon mouse on your right but cheek. no, i don't. you're really my wife? for better or worse, baby! and it‘s hard to believe but it‘s all that funny. i watched this in a fairly packed screening room, and there is nothing louder than the sound of people not laughing at a comedy. and there is so much mugging going on screen, and yet the comedy is...
5:50 pm
the key reason is there is zero chemistry, absolutely zero chemistry between the two leads. so consequently, you end up worrying about the plot and thinking that it‘s really creepy. even though you didn‘t think about that the first time around. there‘s something, it‘s notjust that it doesn‘t make any sense, is that it‘s actually really creepy. not funny, a real shame. some talented people involved in it, none of their talents are being used. and did we need a remake of it? really? no. why do they do this? well, let‘s find the producer and ask him sometime. lex and the dogs, not well seen, will i love this? it‘s not primarily about dogs. i love andrew codding, i think he is a one—of—a—kind film—maker. the story is based on a play, which is based on a real—life story about a russian child who left his apartment at the age
5:51 pm
of four, and lived on the streets of moscow with dogs. this is almost a futuristic fantasy in which this guy has now grown up, remembers his life with the dogs, and it‘s about number of things. identity, the pollution of the planet, but primarily about time and the way in which the past and present and future coexist. it‘s a very difficult film to describe because as with all his films, the only way to describe it is to say you have to watch it. i think it‘s really remarkable, and i think the film—maker is one that we should celebrate. you have to seek is film out, it‘s touring around the country. it won‘t be playing in your local multiplex, it won‘t be going against 0verboa rd, unfortunately. but it‘s really something,
5:52 pm
and a there are dogs in it, but it‘s not turner and hooch. that might be a good thing. i like that movie! dvd of the week, it‘s one of those extraordinary films that you think about afterwards a lot, phantom thread, and it put me in the mind of what we said last week about the piano. i really thought it was amazing and beautiful without necessarily enjoying it. fine. here is the thing. phantom thread, paul thomas anderson, daniel day—lewis‘s final performance, apparently this‘ll be the last thing he does. i‘ve now seen phantom thread seven times. and five of them in the cinema. the first time i saw it, i liked it. the second time i liked it, i love it. by the third time, i thought this is overtaking punch—drunk love. i‘m starting to think i‘ve become a bit weirdly obsessed by it, and that perhaps my response is not completely rational. but a lot of people really do love it, and there‘s something so striking about it. but some people absolutely hate it. i think it is a real...
5:53 pm
the first time you saw it, you admired it but didn‘t like it. i found that it lived with me, and that is a positive. i love the performances. i‘m someone who has been neutral about daniel day—lewis, but i thought he was outstanding! here is my advice, watch it six more times, and you will find that it will really get its claws into you. right, that‘s my weekend. thank you very much indeed. on that thought, just a reminder before we go, you can find all the film news and reviews from across the bbc‘s online. all our previous programmes are on the iplayer, as well. enjoy your watching this week, however many times you managed to watch the same film. thanks very much for being with us, bye—bye. good evening. temperatures were into the low 20s
5:54 pm
into the south today, a nudge up off yesterday. and through the north it was a little warmer, too, but with more cloud. but everywhere had a bit more cloud today, some hazier sunshine because of the high cloud. you can see that here. but with little cloud, more than high cloud around for the next few days, this warming trend will continue, both by day and by night. virtually no weather systems around except for the far north where the chess game is, pushing across iceland towards scandinavia. high pressure to build the temperature, both by day and by night across most of the uk. you can see the cloud earlier. this is slightly thicker cloud. it has been getting some rain and drizzle across the west and northern isles of scotland and sutherland. but as we go through the night, it is tempting to move its way up towards the north and get stuck across the northern isles, but it does look like the clearer night across the mainland scotland and therefore cooler here. for the south, it should be quite as chilly as recent nights, but maybe a bit of dawn mist,
5:55 pm
but that will clear very quickly given the strength of the sunshine. for sunday, very much as today, high pressure centred over the country. lots of sunshine around very little breeze. butjust a little northerly breeze may bring some cloud onto east anglian coast lines, possibly the southeast. a little change on today. more sunshine, less cloud across scotland and northern ireland. the temperatures here will be two or three degrees higher. belfast up to 22 and edinburgh as well. for the south, nudging up as well. just a gentle breeze. of course around the coasts. get the sea breeze to setup so it will be a little bit more refreshing here. eventually the cloud clears away from shetland. so a clearer night here, cooler nights. but on the whole because temperatures will start from a higher point, they won‘t get quite as low. there will still be the odd pocket where it is quite chilly, particularly in the countryside, but temperatures in the towns and cities are starting to level up. in the south into the low teens. monday does bring the risk of a little bit more cloud back into the far north and west of scotland. but again, it doesn‘t look as if it will produce much weather. it should be reasonably dry,
5:56 pm
bright and still quite warm. by this stage, you can see the temperatures nudging up towards the mid 20s as well. even for scotland and northern ireland. we will find that heat and hot weather becomes more widespread across the whole of the uk as we go through the week. there will be somewhere i‘m sure that is pipping 30 celsius. it does look like we have a heat wave to come, hot by day and increasingly warm by night. this is bbc news. i‘m annita mcveigh. the headlines at 6pm. thousands of people march through london to demand a vote on the final deal on the uk‘s departure from the eu. the will of the people is to have a proper, informed referendum where we know what a brexit deal means. we can't keep going into this absolute disaster without stopping and thinking if we really want to do this. senior cabinet ministers stress the uk is still prepared to walk away from brexit talks without a deal. the prime minister has always said that nothing is agreed until everything is agreed and that no deal would be better
5:57 pm
than a bad deal. also ahead this hour, an explosion at an election rally attended by zimbabwe‘s president. he was unharmed in the blast, but at least two senior government officials were injured.
