8:11 am
aware that my dad drank. when i went it's 29 years since liverpool last won a league title. they remain unbeaten to secondary school it became at home this season, apparent that he was drunk a lot of the time. intuition is a powerful looking for the win to take them back above manchester city, as both teams return to action thing. i would come home from after the international break. school, there was a certain corner i the only period in the whole season remember walking around on my way. without any interruptions is this and i would know what the evening one because now it's really was going to be. whether he had until the final match day, go for it, and that is exactly drunka lot was going to be. whether he had drunk a lot and it was going to be the situation you want to have, difficult, or he hadn't. also what that you are still fighting for a lot of things. we are fighting for two things so that's brilliant. happened, which was unfortunate, as my father commuted in the same train we will do everything we can to be as me. i was travelling with my as successful as possible. friends in the way home from school. they are unbeaten in premier league this season. my friends in the way home from school. my father was often on the train. it it's going to be was chaotic. when did you realise a massive challenge. in the same way, we respect them, they are doing a really good job. this what —— was not necessarily they are a very good team and it's going to be tough. happening with your friends?” talk about big games today, celtic and rangers meet in the third really realised it was different when i was probably quite a lot old firm game of the season. celtic favourites for the title, older. when you are a child things ten points clear of their rivals at go on and you just deal with them.
8:12 am
the top of the scottish premiership, who can expect a fierce but certainly when i was at atmnosphere celtic park later. secondary school, i didn't really wa nt secondary school, i didn't really want a friends home. and so i would i want rangers to feel the noise, go out. you said you knew the feel the power that we can generate in the stadium, notjust from the evening would be different. what we re evening would be different. what were those evenings like? you just tea m in the stadium, notjust from the team but from the supporters as well. i think that's what being at kept out of the way. my father was home in the derby is all about, never violent. but it was not an generating that atmosphere and we feed off that. easy place. and you just make at the bottom, brad lyons created some noise of his own, yourself a very quiet, very small, hauling st mirren above dundee with the decisive goal in a 2—1win. because you don't know what might be there were also wins for hearts, a trigger. whilst he did sometimes shout and raise his voice, it was kilmarnock and motherwell. england fly half owen farrell showed his dedication, phoning his saracens head coach 45 not directed at me and my sister. but i think because it's such a minutes before his wife was expected to give birth to say thing that there is a lot of stigma he was confident he'd attached to it, a lot of shame make his side's european cup quarter final. needless to say he didn't make it, attached to it, a lot of shame not that it mattered, attached to it, well meaning friends as they thrashed glasgow 56—27 of the family and indeed the family in his absence, winger tell you to keep a secret. so you do keep it a secret. then people say, david strettle ran in two tries as saracens set up a semi final with munster in three week's time that's fine. there is part of you after their win over edinburgh, thinking, i have been told it is
8:13 am
fine andi leinster face the winner of racing thinking, i have been told it is fine and i am very young, but ever —— like every fibre of my body is or toulouse who play today. telling me something isn't fine. now apologies if this puts you off your breakfast, when did you look to try to get some but british heavyweight boxer david price wasn't happy with last night's opponent help? and did yourfather get help? kash ali, who appeared my help? and did yourfather get help? a little hungry himself. my father did have help on and off. take a look at this. sometimes it worked, sometimes it having taken a bite out didn't. it is an ongoing difficulty. of his shoulder in third round, he moved onto his stomach in the fifth and was disqualified. was there enough help? we are talking about people seeking advice price labelled him an animal with in the first instance. was it the right help you needed? there is not further calls for him to be banned. enough help for people that have addictions per se. i would go so far as to say there was no help really for the family. and as we are now looks pretty u nco mforta ble looks pretty uncomfortable as you see it close up. realising from masses amounts of ferrari have a superstar in the making in charles leclerc research, the impact of the family and it could make for a hugely exciting f1 season. he put his car on pole for today's bahrain grand prix. is huge. there are so many instances the 21—year—old becoming the second youngest driver to claim top spot on the grid, in every different instance, be it a beating ferrari team mate and four medical problem or in this case, time world champion sebastian vettel by almost three tenths of a second.

like 991 million last year but they dougal shaw has more. are valued as one of these tech unicorns, more than $1 billion. let's be honest, 2019 will be the year of tech and these massive this may look like an ordinary van on an ordinary street but there's valuations. something like wework, something a bit different going on here. this is actually a mobile barbershop. it's a sight londoners might have they are losing money. so why are to get used to if one young entrepreneur has his way. these valued like this? it's what so when we originally created the idea, we modelled the customer they think they are going to be model, we modelled the experience around someone like me, worth? yes, it's about what the next young, black male. he's been running his business step is. if you look at something for a year now from these offices in brixton, south london. like lyft or over, they are looking more than 17,000 people have at the future with autonomous cars downloaded the app used and the amount of money they could to book the barber vans. make in the future. it's the he has a fleet of three which are fully booked, working morning to night. potential of this industrial the idea behind the service is that revolution that these investors are a new generation of young black men doesn't have time to be waiting betting on. they're looking at the around in barber shops anymore. future of work and how we interact even though for many years they were an important social hub with technology. they are thinking about money in ten years. it is all for the black community. about money in ten years. it is all a best guess of everyone, this is

8:27 am
to mark the 10th anniversary of international tra nsgender day of visibility our lgbt correspondent ben hunte has been to meet two trans people who have very different stories. a dark eye shadow, dark tan, a mid—tan and a light tan. meet annabel. this is a cover stick. she is a 63—year—old transgender woman living in caenarfon in wales. last year, she transitioned to being a full—time female. this period of my life is the best period of my life. and it's because i haven't got to pretend to anyone. i'm me, like it, leave it, except me, don't accept me, it's not my problem. annabel works a few mornings a week as a cleaner. before she transitioned, she spent decades hiding her true self. she lived a double life. i come from a generation where being trans was the equivalent of being a paedophile.
8:28 am
so it was never talked about when i was younger. the decision to transition wasn't an easy one, it was a combination of a lifetime of denial. one night i'd have this elaborately—constructed image of a male biker and the next night i'd be dolled up to the eyeballs going to a gay club in broome and no one set of friends knew about the other set of friends. annabel‘s love of painting and the support of her son got her through the shame and guilt she felt. it was tough at the beginning but if you just get past your own internal prejudice, itjust becomes, like i say, itjust becomes the new normal. for annabel to decision to transition and live full—time as a female was made easier because her employers and herfamily supported her decision, but not all trans people had
8:29 am
it that easy. people like dan. dan is a 42—year—old trans man who transitioned over 20 years ago. some of my family have never known so that's a bit strange because it does feel like, in some ways, i disappeared when i transitioned. but i kind of understand that as well, i think it's about my immediate family wanting to protect me. dan says transitioning earlier would have saved him many years of misery. i think it's really important for children to know about the possibilities and the options available to them. i didn't know the options which left me with a sense of my own ridiculousness. i didn't know anybody who'd transitioned. it meant that i suffered from depression for quite a few years, through my childhood and into my adolescence.
8:30 am
photographs of dan, annabel and other trans people are the subject of an exhibition opening in london tomorrow. with people like dan and annabel becoming more visible all the time, attitudes and laws towards gender are constantly changing. two very different journeys, coming together in an exhibit helping to shed light on older transgender experiences. ben hunte, bbc news. many of us will be celebrating mother's day today with gifts, cards and perhaps even a day out, but for some people it can be a tough time. two friends who both lost the women who were most important to them in their lives have started a campaign offering an alternative way of marking the occasion, they're calling it other's day. emma hopkinson and robyn donaldsonjoin us now. good morning. this is such a lovely idea, tell us, emma, explain how
8:31 am
this came about and the motivation for doing this. others they reset up to bea for doing this. others they reset up to be a moment to stand up in solidarity, —— other's day, it is a moment to stand in solidarity. if your mum is not around, moment to stand in solidarity. if your mum is notaround, if moment to stand in solidarity. if your mum is not around, if you are a mum who has lost the child, mother's day can hold a magnifying glass over that pain. so we've started other's day to be a hard for all of those people, come on in, we've got you, you're not alone, we are all in this together, it is a hug for all of these people. how did this idea come about? we met in nottingham, too long for me to think about! we had a shared experience, emma's mum had cancer and my nan had cancer, i shared experience, emma's mum had cancerand my nan had cancer, i miss changed from my mum so my nan was my mother figure. we went through that
8:32 am
and lost them together. so we understand that that they can be very hard. we thought, we need to express that, we need to give people an outlet for that and the response has been huge. people need that flag that says you can talk about this, and they are then like, absolutely, i want to talk about this. how important is that element of talking about it? and having a place to do that? we have been talking about the perils of social media and how it can be used for ill but this is another example of how you can bring people together and you can talk about it online, and you have a hashtag, other's day, to get people to share their stories. it's very wide—ranging, the stories, people whose mothers who have had early onset dementia, people who have lost children, people who can't conceive, people who are bereaved and
8:33 am
estranged, there is every different circumstance you can imagine. people feel empowered that it goes beyond their personal experience to just talking about feelings on that day. it's been quite freeing the people. one of the things we are keen on is it ok to say that you're not ok. i think among a lot of people, they feel as though when they're grieving, they need tojust get on with things and make sure everyone else feels ok and that their pain is not visible so we fly a flag and say it ok that you're not ok. it doesn't make it any easier, the fact that there is now this big marketing maelstrom that goes on around days like this, any excuse for the card and gift industry to make us spend more money but it has serious implications for people. yes, the run up to mother's day now is it so long, four weeks beforehand, you see a lot of marketing messages and you see these images of so—called perfect family. for anyone who has
8:34 am
been made to feel other by that, it can bea been made to feel other by that, it can be a very trying time. there's a lot of businesses, we have talked about this before, letting you opt out for e—mails on things like mother's day and you support that? yes, fantastic, it takes the takes the burden out of that because someone can give you the option to say, this isn't for me. i applaud any company that has that forethought to do it. very nice to see you, good luck with it. the hashtag is other's day on social media, you can get involved. thank you so much. thank you for your company today. it is nearly nine, 08, the clocks went forward ! is nearly nine, 08, the clocks went forward! back to more —— not eight. hgppy forward! back to more —— not eight. happy mother's day, and happy other's day!
8:35 am
this is bbc news. i'm ben brown. the headlines at nine: police in england and wales are being given greater stop and search powers to tackle rising knife crime. it's a very important tool. it's a vital tool in fighting serious violence. i want police officers to feel more comfortable to use it so they can protect more communities. theresa may considers her next move to break the brexit deadlock following the latest defeat of her withdrawal plan. there's been a sharp rise in the number of adults calling a national helpline for the children of alcoholic parents, according to figures seen by the bbc in sport, we'll have reaction
