6:00 am
looking at the articles on the recent protests in hong kong, the english and chinese versions are completely different from one another. this time the edit war between a couple of editors saw 52 changes in the space of a single day, arguing over the goals of the protesters and small language tweaks constantly, such as whether they were protesters or in fact rioters. academic shirley yu thinks that trying to tell your story is really the natural behavior for any up good morning. and coming superpower. welcome to breakfast, with rogerjohnson and rachel china feels like a hong kong burden. our headlines today: a controversial debate on allowing issue is my issue. married men to become catholic priests will be held in the vatican. i own the issue therefore i own the voices on the issue the prime minister urges the eu and i should own the to compromise on a brexit deal verdicts on the issues. and insists his plan everything that china is primarily interested in and concerned is winning support among mps. about is to defend its political positions. it's all about china. more success for great britain the anglo—saxon world primarily at the world athletics over the foreign debt, for decades, championships. has really framed the china story the men's and women's sprint relay and the interpretation of china based on a western viewpoint teams both won silver. and political and economic framework it was dina asher—smith's third medal of the competition. and i think today china does owe the world a china story told by itself in from a china's perspective. i think it's not only chinese privilege good medal of the competition. morning. it's been a ver it really is a responsibility. night, good morning. it's been a very wet night, and surface water flooding gci’oss night, and surface water flooding across parts of northern scotland, and parts of england. the kettle
6:01 am
when you're heading out this morning. there is more rent to come gci’oss morning. there is more rent to come across eastern areas but it should be brightening up with some sunshine we really don't know how widespread all this is across the vast expanse gci’oss of wikipedia's multilingual entries. be brightening up with some sunshine across the west. i'll have all the and it is impossible for us details a little later on. —— there to verify whether the chinese is more rain to come across eastern government really is ultimately areas. it's sunday, october 6. our top story. roman catholic bishops are gathering responsible for any of it. at the vatican this morning for the start of a 3—day meeting which will include absolutely conceivable that people from the diaspora, discussions on whether to allow you know, patriotic chinese are editing these wikipedia married men to become priests. the move, which would break entries, but to say that is also centuries of tradition, to ignore that larger structural would help to alleviate coordinated strategy a shortage of clergymen. the government has john mcmanus reports. to manipulate these platforms. this is the fourth sign that pope francis opened since he was elected pontiff —— synod. it is expected to heather ford isn't surprised at all to see that states might be getting involved. be controversial. as well as social i'm surprised it's taken this long actually. and environmental challenges in the i mean when you consider the fact amazon such as deforestation and that wikipedia is not only the fifth most popular website in the world. mining, the 264 participants will also discuss whether the judge when you ask siri or you ask google should set aside its own rules on questions, they're now using the knowledge engine from wikipedia. so it is a prioritized source priestly celibacy and ordain older, of knowledge and facts about the world. and if you can influence that,
6:02 am
married man. that would boost the then you are, you have — you are influencing how people are understanding church's presence in rural areas where a shortage of priests mean that some communities only visit the church a few times a year. another idea is how to acknowledge and often promote the central role that women and perceiving what the truth is. play in maintaining catholicism. but there is serious opposition to the synod among some senior catholics who fear this will they lose or change long—held teachings. the us that is fascinating stuff. cardinal raymond burr, who has and carl's with me now emerged as the tobacco leader of in our underground bunker somewhere. those forces within the vatican, carl, how sure can we be that these opposed by answers and has called for fasting and prayer to combat what he cold theological errors and heresies. john mcmanus, bbc news. great britain has enjoyed manipulations are being done under more medal success at the world athletics championships in doha, with both the men and women taking silver in the 4x100 metres relay. callum hawkins came close instruction from the chinese state? to adding to the haul. and also how sure can we be he missed out on a bronze that it is really widespread? in the marathon byjust six seconds. we know there were 1500 tendentious here's our sports edits in our own investigation across roughly 20 different correspondent natalie pirks. wikipedia entries and we know that she's had the expectation all of them pointed in certain ways towards chinese geopolitical of a nation on her shoulders, interests, as far as we can tell.
6:03 am
but dina asher—smith has we don't know who was behind these edits. we don't know why more than delivered. in fact they were done and most importantly we can not make a direct two medals down, one to ago. link between any of those edits and the chinese government themselves. but the relay hasn't always gone britain's way. 0k. great britain and northern ireland! so you've put this to the wikimedia foundation and it looks like it which is the kind of overarching body that oversees wikipedia. could be tricky again. what's their reaction? broadly they're saying that whatever you're actually doing on the site, a last—minute injury saw asha philip drafted in, if you're systematically doing it to kick things off. for political gain that really so asha philip, united states outside her. is against the very reason why and she's lost a little wikipedia was really created. bit of ground here. but the problem is that we've heard the same from facebook and other dina was swapped from the last leg web 2.0 companies where they're basically saying, well, to second, charged with chasing it violates our terms and conditions. jamaica's 100 metre world champion, but people still do it. shelly—ann fraser—pryce. but she was long gone, the ace in the hole for wikipedia and by the time the baton reached would be that they're now passing daryll neita, britain was in a straight these links that we've sent them fight for second. and all the evidence that we have jamaica take the gold, great britain, silver, to their tens of thousands united states, the bronze. of community editors and volunteers. remarkably, despite ripping up wikimedia foundation is not actually responsible for the content, the script, britain's women that would be the volunteers themselves. delivered the silver medal in back—to—back championships. which of course is a huge in a time just short benefit for them. they can mobilise all these people of the national record. around the world who will constantly but would the man also patrol and protect the site. and in fact do return be jumping for joy? many of the edits that we saw britain where the defending at least back to their original state actually quite quickly. champions, but the speed you know, you've got with wikipedia of the american team was ferocious
6:04 am
this vision of a kind of open and there would be no catching them. internet, open knowledge, open source. it's united states, gold, but in stark contrast silverfor great britain to have less of a newer, and northern ireland, perhaps, but rising idea, bronze forjapan. and that is the kind of increasing it was a blisteringly power of states online, you know, fast european record, the idea that geopolitical battles will now be fought online no golden moment this time, two, and that places like wikipedia but silver selfies felt as sweet. may become too important or too powerful for states to really ignore that's two silver medals, one for britain's women, in their struggles over the truth and one for britain's men. and it means that dina asher—smith ends these championships with three medals. we all handled the situation, and in defining what people believe. like, fantastically. i think it's a testament to how much experience you've all got as a squad. it means she's now the first british athlete to win three medals at the same world championships, with a little help from herfriends. natalie pirks, bbc news, doha. carl, how absolutely fascinating. thank you so much for the research. and i am afraid that is all it for the short version of click. 99 people have now died in clashes between demonstrators and security forces in iraq, prompting the full—length version is waiting for you right now on iplayer. the united nations to demand an end you can find us throughout to the violence. the week on facebook, protests against unemployment youtube, instagram and twitter. and government corruption began we are also on wikipedia, in baghdad on tuesday and have if you want to look us up. since spread to the south thanks for watching of the country, with troops using live rounds and tear gas on the crowds.
6:05 am
and we will see you soon. the un's top official in iraq says that those responsible for the deaths must be prosecuted. boris johnson has urged still to come on breakfast, the european union to show that it's "willing to compromise" we'll have a in—depth look with the uk on a brexit deal. writing in two sunday newspapers, the prime minister appeals to the eu to begin serious negotiations, saying that his proposals are picking up support among mps on all sides. his comments come after the irish pm, leo varadkar, said mrjohnson‘s current plans "do not form the basis for deeper negotiations". in an interview for today's andrew marr show, latvia's prime minister said an agreement was a long shot. it certainly is possible, but it depends on one crucial element — but also mrjohnson as well as the eu are willing and ready to move on a compromised matter. if the offer from the uk turns out to be a sort of ta ke from the uk turns out to be a sort of take it or leave it much it's going to be very difficult, in
6:06 am
agreeing. mental health patients good morning. are at increasing risk due to poor treatment facilities welcome to breakfast and ageing buildings, with rogerjohnson and rachel that's according to new evidence burden. our headlines today: gathered by the organisation which represents nhs hospital, the prime minister urges the eu to ambulance and community services. compromise on a brexit deal and insists his plan is winning support among mps. a controversial debate on nhs providers found there were nearly 1,400 more "safety incidents" last year allowing married men to become than in the previous 12 months, catholic priests will be held at the including a patient who fell from a window. the group is questioning vatican. more successful great the government's claim that "mental healthcare is a priority" britain at the world athletics championships, the men's and women's sprint relay team win silver. good of course we welcome the announcement of additional investment for some new hospitals, its much—needed, but we were really morning to you, it's been a very wet dismayed there was nothing at all night and surface water flooding across parts of scotland, north and for mental health, despite all of east parts of england. take care of the commitments that we have heard you are heading out first thing this so the commitments that we have heard so farand the commitments that we have heard so far and the fact that there is morning. there is more rain to come across eastern areas but there really u na cce pta ble so far and the fact that there is really unacceptable conditions out should be some sunshine across the there in mental health buildings and west. i'll have all the details a facilities, which we know are really little later on. putting patient safety at risk.
6:07 am
more demonstrations are expected in hong kong today, as pro—democracy lawyers try to overturn a ban on protestors wearing face masks. some trains are running again after the public transport network was closed down following serious clashes between protestors and the police. 0ur china correspondent robin brant is there now. robin, is more violence likely today? what are we expecting? the metro system is half open, so in a sense, a bit ofa system is half open, so in a sense, a bit of a return to normality. this is because a bay area of hong kong island. many people are out shopping, but one or two protest marches are planned for today. let's talk a little bit about that emergency measure that was brought forward on midnight on friday, the government banning facemask by protesters at these events. look at what they are handing out at this table, we are in a place where a protesters plan in an hour or so's time, and you can get your own bottle of water, but also your own black protective facemask. they told us
6:08 am
black protective facemask. they told us this is about preventing the spread of sickness, you know, the seasons are changing, there is blue around, but i think it tells us all you need to know about how the protesters view those measures brought in —— flu around, it is a sense of defiance, notjust about the police's attempts to stop people — rather, letting people hide their identity, but more about the government using emergency measures at the same time as saying hong kong is not in a state of emergency. yeah, 0k, thank you. a radio ixtra gig in birmingham was called off last night after a man suffered what police describe as a "slash wound" while he was backstage. the event was taking place at the city's arena and being broadcast live on radio. the injured man was treated on site by medical staff and did not require hospital treatment. west midlands police had launched an investigation. today marks the end of operation matterhorn
6:09 am
to repatriate uk holidaymakers whose flights were cancelled after the collapse of thomas cook last month. the civil aviation authority says it has brought home more than 130,000 of the travel firm's customers during the 2—week operation. tomorrow, it will begin accepting applications for refunds from customers whose holidays were cancelled before they had left the uk. it's not even 6:10am, so this may set your heartbeat racing. there were some hollywood moves on the strictly dance floor last night for the first themed episode of the season. i warned you, i really did. it was a magical moment. our very own ‘magic mike' and his professional partner, katya jones, danced the cha cha cha to ‘it‘s raining men'. they scored 18 out of a possible 40 points for their performance.
6:10 am
that was a bit harsh, i thought they we re that was a bit harsh, i thought they were better than that. they are putting the hours in, putting the effort then. the final results for week three will be revealed in tonight's show. he ripped his farm and's costume of, it was all velcro and on. goss. the fa ct it was all velcro and on. goss. the fact that that in itself did not go horribly wrong, i was just relieved that nothing more came out without farm andoutfit. there were some brilliant, brilliant dancers. —— fire a man's outfit. you wonder whether those who have had a bit of dancing background, the actors and actresses a re dancing background, the actors and actresses are starting to, i don't know... michelle desires, i don't know... michelle desires, i don't know how much dance she has had in her background, but she is brilliant —— michelle visage.
6:11 am
her background, but she is brilliant -- michelle visage. just as mike is doing it for the older man. we are going to go through the papers. let's look at the front pages. the observer has more details about prince harry's legal action against two newspaper groups over alleged phone hacking. it's not just prince it's notjust prince harry, but him with a group of other complainers. the paper says he'll claim the tabloids hid evidence of illegal activity. the sunday mirror carries an interview with the footballer—turned—actor vinnie jones, his first since losing his wife tanya to cancer earlier this year. you can see in the photograph there the pain in his face. politics on the pain in his face. politics on the front page of the sunday times this morning. ‘sack me if you dare' says the sunday times, which claims borisjohnson will goad the queen to fire him rather than resign over brexit. there's also a picture of prince george with his parents and sister charlotte at the football yesterday. he watched aston villa beat norwich by 5—1. i don't know if it was the first
6:12 am
time. one of the papers said they we re time. one of the papers said they were sitting in ordinary seat, but they were in fact in the executive area. i expect they were padded seats. was it his first game, i guess it was his sister's first game as well? and the sunday telegraph reports that senior ministers have suggested the prime minister should appoint nigel farage as britain's eu ambassador in the event of a brexit delay. it also has a picture of prince george's trip to the football. and speaking of the football, john is here with us as well. probably good it wasn't tottenham against brian, because there were some nasty injuries. if you are squeamish, look away now. only one newspaper has shown the dislocated elbow, that's on the back of the mail. but this is on the back of the mail. but this is on the back of the mail. but this is on the sun, you can see him in agony, he did have to go to hospital. it adds to tottenham's difficulty. they are under huge pressure, they got beaten 7—2, and then lost 3—0, so that talk about
6:13 am
his future. that picture of his arm p°pped his future. that picture of his arm normed up his future. that picture of his arm popped up in my phone, on my timeline last night. no, no, no. occasionally you get those injuries, david boost had a compound fracture to his chin. everyonejust in unison, just really nasty. there we re unison, just really nasty. there were some crunches yesterday. this was the turning point, england, playing for the quarterfinals of the rugby world cup, but if that's the turning point. did you think it was a red card? i think so. they are really trying to mitigate against the risk of concussion which is quite travelling at the moment. yet any impacts to the head or the neck does not quite —— prevalent at the moment, and any impacts to the head
6:14 am
or neck does deserve a red card. uncomfortable against argentina, they were down for the last part of it. then new zealand are playing namibia. talking about horrific, i think that will be a bloodbath. namibia had three points on the board, which is not bad. you'll take that, against the all blacks. the first thing she said when she came into the studio was "can we put the new zealand game on on the monitor?" great pictures here for the 4x100m relay team. she was happy to make it when she was running last night, now she finished down in fear. it's worth pointing out that her time was faster than kelly holmes' run when she won gold in 2004. it goes to
6:15 am
show how fast that race was last night. yeah, she finished what, down infear? so night. yeah, she finished what, down in fear? so disappointing to her. stephan has found winning it in a brilliant time —— siffan hassan. stephan has found winning it in a brilliant time -- siffan hassan. and the man in the british 1500 metres, that will be interesting. and the 4x100m relay as well. we will talk to two relay teams during the course of the morning. i hope so. i have noticed namibia has gotten another three points, so it's10—6. game on. you've got to keep an eye on it. there was a bit of rain around overnight. it looks a bit wet there. yes, it has been very wet in places.
6:16 am
two inches in central and southern scotla nd two inches in central and southern scotland and northern and eastern england. there will be minor flooding. the ground is sensitive from the all the rain we have had over the last couple of weeks. as weather front is the culprit, slowly moving eastwards across the country and writing to a halt across eastern areas. it has been extremely wet in places. scotland and eastern england. it looks like it was a windy across eastern coastal areas of scotland. heavier birth time. it was not to pull away from western scotla nd was not to pull away from western scotland but stay wet across eastern scotland. the rain lingers on through the morning from lincolnshire down towards east anglia. a few showers falling on behind full as we had through the morning and afternoon, the rain tends to peter out and it will leave
6:17 am
a legacy of cloud and one or two showers but further west, it is brightening up. a few showers running into parts of northern england, the midlands but we will hold onto the cloud and outbreaks of rain across lincolnshire and in towards east anglia. temperatures around mid teens for most of us. and thenit around mid teens for most of us. and then it turns dry thanks to the ridge of high pressure. the next weather system will be waiting in the wings, pushing into western scotla nd the wings, pushing into western scotland and western wales and the south—west. vigorous area of low pressure will stay out towards the of the uk but we will see a real squeeze in the isobars as we had through tonight and into tomorrow morning. gales or even severe gales for a time. 60 or 70 mph across the west of the uk is the band of rain spreads eastwards. it might not be heavyin spreads eastwards. it might not be heavy in its persistence of what we saw last night and this morning but we could see flooding issues as it
6:18 am
is falling on saturated ground. it will brighten up in the southwest later on and staying rather cloudy. for the rest of the week it will look old tunnel with strong winds of the atlantic and gale force at times bringing plenty of rain but they will be some sunshine in between. now on breakfast, it's time for the film review. hello and welcome to the film review on bbc news. taking us through this week's releases, we've got mark kermode. who else? mark, you've got some big movies this week to talk about. and they couldn't be more different. we havejudy, in which renee
6:19 am
zellweger plastudy garland. we havejoker with an arresting central performance byjoaquin phoenix. and good posture, a little indie pic directed by dolly wells. so, from bridgetjones to judy garland. this has been in the works a long time, adapted from the stage play called end of the rainbow. it's the end ofjudy garland's life, it's when she was playing at the talk of the town, she's very, very low on money so she has to do the gig despite the fact that she's not entirely certain she can do it. she didn't want to leave her kids in america but she had to earn money. and the film catches up with her, very much like with stan and ollie, that weird hinterland when suddenly hollywood stars find themselves working and not ideal situations in the uk. when she has to go on stage, because she has had pills and booze problems in the past, she doesn't think her voice is up to it, she's not sure that she can do it butjessie buckley,
6:20 am
who is playing her assistant, is absolutely insistent that it is time to go on. thank you, ladies. clear the way, clear the way. thank you. here we go, boys. what's the matter? i can't. what? what you mean you can't? there is an audience out there waiting to hear you sing. my mouth is dry and it could fall apart. listen to me. i can't. you'll be fine. now, on you go. applause and cheering. the show must go on. it was a very tragic life story, wasn't it? it was, and the film does a lot of flashing back to her childhood, on set at the wizard of oz, being bullied and starved by louis b
6:21 am
mayer. don't eat it." —— there is one thing which she is told, "here's a birthday cake, don't eat it." because she is not allowed to eat anything. we see a heartbreaking moment with mickey rooney where she says, are we dating? and he says, no, no, we're just good pals. and that is the basis of everything that happens later. the film is fairly on the nose about that sort of thing. it says this came from that and this led to that. it is stagey in its construction and at the heart of it is this performance by renee zellweger which i neverforgot that i was watching renee zellweger performing a legend. it wasn't like watching joaquin phoenix in walk the line, orjerry lee lewis played by dennis quaid. but the more i thought about it, perhaps that performance fits the film, because there's line the film where she says, i'm onlyjudy for like an hour and the rest of the time i'm somebody else. so, a lot of the film is about her performing the role ofjudy, and in a weird way, watching renee zellweger giving a performance asjudy kind of fits.
6:22 am
the other thing is the film does have a lot of darkness in it and one of the things it lacks is thatjoy, that sparkle, thatjoie de vivre that you got from judy garland's performance. there are two characters, stan and dan, who are fans who absolutely love her and one reason they have been written in is because they stress how important she was to the lgbt community. but also i found that through them, watching her on stage, you saw in his face the joy that you should have been feeling from the performance. so it's an interesting film, it is very strong performance, a strange performance, but very strong. you mentioned joaquin phoenix, we are going to talk aboutjoker, shrouded in controversy. yes. it opened at a festival and gets an eight—minute standing ovation, wins top prize and the next thing is there's a backlash saying it's irresponsible, a cruel and nasty film. irresponsible, some say, because it is thought it could inspire violence. well...
6:23 am
ok, the story is about a character made byjoaquin phoenix, arthur fleck, who wants to be a stand—up comedian but doesn't understand what anybody else finds funny, is living an embittered life with his mother, he gets beaten up and abused, and he turns. very much in the style of something like death wish, or even more recently something like falling down. and then because he is dressed as a clown, that inspires an uprising. it is a film which is dealing with volatile issues. it is also made by the director of the hangover movies which never dealt with subtlety of kindness very much. my question is this, it's an origins film aboutjoker, what do people expect it to be? at the centre of it, you have a really mesmerising performance byjoaquin phoenix. the film, its prime frame of reference is martin scorsese's king of comedy, one of the darkest comedy movies ever made. de niro plays a guy who basically kidnaps his way onto television.
6:24 am
here, robert de niro plays a character who is a smarmy tv talk—show host, so it reference points the ‘70s, martin scorsese, nothing about it is subtle. yes, it is a nasty, dark, difficult film. is it very violent? no, certainly no more so than any mainstream cinema. i think, in the end, it is a character study, it is a very dyspeptic view of the world. but that's what it is meant to be. i went in thinking i hate the hangover movies, and i came out thinking, wow, who thought the guy that made the hangover movies could make that movie? good posture. thank you. a completely different independent picture written and directed by dolly wells. grace van patten is a young woman who finds herself needing somewhere to live, she ends up living in a house in which lives a reclusive author played by emily mortimer. she has to do chores and make dinner but they hardly see each other and yet they develop strange relationship by reading and writing in each other‘s journal. it is an epistolary tale about two people living in the same house. here's a clip.
6:25 am
what? "lilian, might be something there. getting don stoned first night in our home, desperate for affirmation, scared of women, feral, chewing gum on the steps, footprints on the wall. toothpaste all over the mirror."
6:26 am
so, you get a sense from that. it has a very nudely indie feel to it. what i liked about it was many of the characters in it are quite difficult and quite annoying. she is called overpriveleged and is referred to as an oaf. the writer played by emily mortimer is frosty and difficult, which is playing completely against type for emily mortimer. it raises the question, can you like a film with unlikeable characters? the answer in this case is yes. this is an indie film in which somebody produces a ukulele. and i have a rule which is don't produce a ukulele unless you're going to do something interesting. and actually it did. i did laugh a lot, it was very funny. also, it has that thing about it that it's got a nice offbeat, strange, off—kilter feel to it. a relationship between people who are not likeable and in many ways you could take against them and find them irritating but it doesn't mean you find the film irritating. mark kermode ukulele rule. it is. good to know that rule. the best out that the moment?
6:27 am
the farewell. have you seen this yet? you must see it. it is life—enhancing and charming and about the anticipation of death but also it is funny and it is very, very honest about families and this range of relationships between families. somebody is a terminal diagnosis and they are the only one who doesn't know because their family thinks they shouldn't know. great performance. i went to see it knowing nothing about it other than the title and i was completely knocked out. and i have been to see your best dvd, which i absolutely adore. rocketman. it is so worth seeing twice or even three times to get the most out of it. yeah, it's really layered, brilliantly directed by dexter fletcher, who took over the direction of bohemian rhapsody, and i think in many ways he saved that film. also, bernie taupin played by jamie bell, who currently is also in cinemas playing a tattooed
6:28 am
neo—nazi skinhead. the range is extraordinary. and it's a proper musical. like tommy. i think it owes a great debt to that film. it is one of my favourite films of the year. you were talking about whether you believe renee zellweger wasjudy garland, but although he is quite different in some ways from eltonjohn, you do believe it is him. i absolutely do. it is that weird thing about whether when you are watching somebody performing a performer, whether you think you are watching a performer or seeing the real person. i think sissy spacek in the coal miner's daughter is one of those other times where you completely lose it. when he was cast i thought it was interesting but five minutes into the film, you think it is fine, everything, the stance on a mixture of the bare—chested bravado but also that kind of rabbit in the headlights vulnerability. it really made eltonjohn one of the most interesting performers of the glam rock era. and eltonjohn loved it. who wouldn't!
6:29 am
he's got very good taste. mark, thank you very much. thank you. that is it for this week. thank you for watching. goodbye from both of us.
6:30 am
three points, so it's10—6. game on. you've got to keep an eye on it. hello, this is breakfast with rogerjohnson and rachel burden. good morning. here's a summary of today's main stories from bbc news: roman catholic bishops are gathering at the vatican for the start of a three day meeting which includes discussions on whether to allow married men to become priests. the move, which would break centuries of tradition would help to alleviate a shortage of clergymen. that has been the focus of a furious backlash by traditionalist catholic bishops. pope francis has vividly indicated he is open to the ideas. britain has
6:31 am
enjoyed more success in data, with both the men and women taking metals in the 4x100m relay. dinner at smith -- dina in the 4x100m relay. dinner at smith —— dina asher—smith came second, while the men broke records. protests in baghdad have spread to the south of the country, with soldiers using live rounds and tear gas on crowds. borisjohnson has urged the european union to show that it urged the european union to show thatitis urged the european union to show that it is willing to compromise with the uk on a brexit deal. writing in two of the sunday newspapers, the prime minister appears to the eu to begin serious negotiations, saying that his proposals are picking up support among mps on all sides. his comments
6:32 am
come after the irish taoiseach, the override car that mrjohnson's plans do not form the basis for deeper negotiations —— leo varadkar. mental health patients are at increasing risk due to poor treatment facilities and ageing buildings, that's according to new evidence gathered by the organisation which represents nhs hospital, ambulance and community services. nhs providers found there were nearly 1,400 more "safety incidents" last year than in the previous 12 months, including a patient who fell from a window. the group is questioning the government's claim that "mental healthcare is a priority." of course we welcome the announcement of additional investment for some new hospitals, it's much needed. but we were really dismayed there was nothing in there at all for mental health despite all of the commitments that we've heard so far. and the fact that there's really unacceptable conditions out there in mental health buildings and facilities, which we know are really putting
6:33 am
patients' safety at risk. a radio 1xtra gig in birmingham was called off last night after a man suffered what police describe as a "slash wound" while he was backstage. the event was taking place at the city's arena and being broadcast live on radio. let's speak to our reporter simonjones who's in our london newsroom. what more can you tell us, simon? the event was billed as bringing together some of the biggest names in crime and rap. the event was sold out and there were thousands of spectators there, around 10pm it had to be abandoned, about 40 minutes before it was due to an, and i was before it was due to an, and i was before the headline act, whiz kid had taken to the stage. the bbc initially there had been an isolated serious incident. west midlands police said there had been an assault backstage, a man suffered a slash wound. he was treated by staff at the venue, he didn't need to go to hospital, but there was confusion
6:34 am
in the stadium when people were asked to leave. on social media you can see some people building, they didn't realise the seriousness of the situation. the bbc has since that it apologises to fans who had to leave early without seeing the main act, but health and safety was the number one priority. they say they are cooperating with the police and the investigation and they say they are upset that this happened to one of their guests. i think there would be big questions they were about security, people arriving at the event had to go through airport style arches, they also had searches of bags, there were security staff and sniffer dogs in and outside the venue. clearly that doesn't seem to have been enough. the bbc said the venue itself was responsible for the main security operations, the venue told us that it couldn't comment further because it was an ongoing police investigation. simon, thank you. more demonstrations are expected in hong kong today as pro—democracy lawyers try to overturn a ban on protesters wearing face masks. some trains are running

again after the public transport network was suspended yesterday, following serious clashes between protesters and police. ‘s chief executive, carrie lam, described the violence a very dark night. today marks the end of operation matt owen, the —— matter on, the plan to repatriate tourists after the closure of thomas cook. tomorrow, it will begin accepting applications for refunds from customers whose holidays were cancelled before they had left the uk. there were some hollywood moves on the strictly dance floor last night for the first themed episode of the season. so far. let's have a look. # for the first time in history, it's going to start raining men!
6:36 am
our very own ‘magic mike' and his professional partner, katya jones, danced the cha cha cha to ‘it‘s raining men'. they scored 18 out of a possible 40 points for their performance. that was a bit harsh, i thought they were better than that. the final results for week three will be revealed in tonight's show. much of the talk is about how katya took a tumble, then see in the post dance that, she fell again, but a p pa re ntly dance that, she fell again, but apparently that was deliberate. clearly. they are all fine, and mike lives, hopefully. we will wait to see the result tonight. what do you reckon? you win it. i hope so. the medals keep coming for great britain at the world athletics championships in doha. the women took silver

in the 4x100 metre relay, it's raining medals. edged into second place byjamaica, but it was a season's best time for gigabits, and it gave dina asher—smith her third medal of the competition. two silvers and that gold from the 200 metres, but this one was all about the team. i think we all handled the situation, like, fantastically. i think it's a testament to how much experience you have got as a squad. between us, i don't know how many championships with god. you are in the beijing olympics. we got so many people, and we almost ran a pb, we haven't practised in any of the warm—up areas. haven't practised in any of the warm-up areas. and the means that a european record, they were only beaten by the united states, the tea m beaten by the united states, the team that ran the second fastest

race in history. laura muir produced a gutsy display in the 1500m final, finishing fifth behind winner sifan hassan in a very quick race. muir's time was faster than the one which gave kelly holmes olympic gold in 2004. she tried to catch the frontrunner hassan, but she was caught with 150m remaining. hassan, who also won the 10,000 metres title, broke the championship record — but she was very emotional about the suspicion hanging over her, after her coach alberto salazar was banned for doping offences. i get so hard time in this championships. i did my best here to show the world, i am clean, i'm a lwa ys show the world, i am clean, i'm always clean, i will be clean. do they think i don't get tested? i get tested every time. they come test me every day, if they want to, when they come, i will be happy. an incredibly fast race and an

incredible time from her. premier league champions manchester city are at home to wolves this afternoon, that's one of four games today, and they're now eight points behind liverpool, who extended their lead with a late winner against leicester yesterday. nick parrott rounds up the action. a flareup at full—time at anfield, on the face of it, you wouldn't know who won and lost. perhaps it should have been a draw. liverpool controlled the first up and took the lead thanks to sadio mane a, lester couldn't manage a shot on target until the 80th minute, james maddison made it count. then the moment that helped spark that feeling, the reverie spotted braden's step on mane's foot, which was backed up by video assisted reverie. maintaining liveable's perfect start to the season.|j reverie. maintaining liveable's perfect start to the season. i did a lot of good things, winning again against a sideline lester, you will be seeing that during the season, lester causing a lot of problems and i expect them in the top four. so it was a big one. vai was needed to

separate west ham united and crystal palace, too. —— var, they had just minutes left, the decision was overturned and the decision moved palace into the top four. also on the aston villa, their team is starting to gel in record signing ra nsley starting to gel in record signing ransley struck twice as they beat norwich 5—1. it saw them leapfrog the canaries who dropped into the relegation zone. just above them now are everton who lost 1—0. wasn't‘s difficult start of the season didn't get any better as they lost 3—0 at brighton. and to make matters worse, they goalkeeper and captain will be out for a while after he dislocated his elbow. nick parrott, bbc news. terrible scenes for the goalkeeper. he was taken to hospital. the top two in the scottish premiership, celtic and rangers, both play today. motherwell are still third, three points behind celtic after beating st mirren yesterday

and kilmarnock won at hearts. chris burke with the only goal of the game, and that left hearts just two points off the bottom of the table. the day's other matches ended in draws. england women's manager, phil neville, said a fourth defeat in five games just was "not acceptable" as his side were beaten 2—1 by brazil in a friendly in middlesbrough. debinha scored both of brazil's goals, the first largely due to a goalkeeping error by mary earps. the second found its way in via a deflection. beth england pulled one back on 80 minutes but brazil held on for the win. we kept going rates of the variation, our player times was some of the best football in a split for a long time. and now wearing that period where things are going forwards, may be as they were 12 months ago, we'vejust
6:42 am
forwards, may be as they were 12 months ago, we've just got to stick together and believe in what we're doing is right. there are two matches in the rugby union world cup today: new zealand v namibia is well under way. they are not having it all their own way. meanwhile, in england's pool, france can secure a quarterfinal place with victory over tonga. england made sure of their place in the last eight with a 39—10 win over 14—man argentina, 39—10 in tokyo. england's last pool match is against france and that will probably decide who finishes top in the group. canadian side toronto wolfpack have won promotion to the super league after beating featherstone rovers in what's known as ‘the million pound game.‘ it means top flight rugby league will be played in north america for the first time next year. toronto trailed 6—4 at the break, but eventually ran in four tries to complete a 24—6 victory. great britain's women are through to the team final at the gymnastics world championships. they're also guaranteed a place at next year's tokyo olympics. no doubting the star of the show in stuttgart, though. usa's simone biles performed two
6:43 am
original skills in qualifying as she made all six women's finals. the american became the first woman to complete a triple—double move on floor and then a double—double dismount on beam. and i don't know quite exactly what thatis, and i don't know quite exactly what that is, but it's very impressive. she is very impressive. she is astonishing! so talented. shejust does things you don't think the body should be capable of stop the double — doubles and the triple— dribbles. are you expecting to see mike do that? and finally it would seem aston villa have a new lucky charm. their win over norwich was watched by a new fan of theirs, prince george. his dad the duke of cambridge, took him along to carrow road, possibly getting his first born hooked on his team villa. getting him hooked on his favourite team. goals galore for him. you
6:44 am
probably don't want to get him thinking that is going to be the way it always is. mum and dad decided not to splash out, and actually buy a proper villa kit, they did what i would probably do, where your pyjama top. it's an aston villa pyjama top. never mind the 40—50 quid. top. it's an aston villa pyjama top. never mind the 40-50 quid. yeah, exactly. here's stav with a look at the weather. it's been pretty miserable, how is it looking? good morning to you. yes, very wet. it's been extremely wet overnight, we've seen over two inches of rainfall folding over western scotland, also very wet across the north and east of england. rememberlike you
6:45 am
remember like you just said, it has been so wet that the rainfall is exacerbating the problems. this is the rainfall radar from exacerbating the problems. this is the rainfall radarfrom earlier through the night, you can see the dark blue where the heaviest of the rain has been. it is still wet through central and eastern scotland with widespread rain and wind across the east coast. the rain should start to fragment in the morning and a bit brighter in scotland. one or two showers in northern england but it stays wet down the eastern coast. this area holds onto the rain throughout most of the afternoon and some of it will be heavy with a rumble of thunder. it will start to peter out across scotland and a few showers following on but it will also turn windy with wales into the midlands with gales. mid teens further north. it turns dry thanks
6:46 am
toa further north. it turns dry thanks to a ridge of high pressure but look to a ridge of high pressure but look to the west, the next frontal system pushes into bring windy and wet weather severe gales perhaps across the north—west of the country. looking at the deep area of low pressure, lots of isobars on the chart which is why we will see strong winds, particularly in the north and west. the system will wea ken north and west. the system will weaken as we go through the day so it won't be quite as wet as what we saw overnight and through this morning to it will still remain quite wet and windy —— england and wales but into the afternoon we should see sunshine and if you heavy, may be thundery, showers. blustery across—the—board, especially in the north—west corner. temperature was a little bit lower than the weekend. generally 14 to 12 "12 to 14 than the weekend. generally 14 to 12 ——12 to 14 degrees. it was day windy
6:47 am
with further outbreaks of rain, sunshine and showers with temperatures remaining around the seasonal average. lovely. temperatures remaining around the seasonalaverage. lovely. i mean, it is not lovely, i don't know why i said lovely was not lovely to talk to you, stav. now on breakfast it's time for click. some call it fake news, some call it disinformation, online manipulation or even information warfare. the tech giants call it coordinated
6:48 am
inauthentic activity. false news articles on facebook, bots putting questionable opinions on twitter. what we now know is that nation states have and are weaponising these techniques to their own ends. russia to interfere with elections, china to spread disinformation. but there is one place which hasn't been associated with deliberate disinformation recently and that is wikipedia. it is the largest collection of human knowledge ever created, arguably the first digital wonder of the world, the font of all internet knowledge. it has nearly 6 million pages with a staggering 18 billion page views every month. and it was created in the best spirit of the internet, transparent, non—profit—making and open for everyone to read and edit. we may have been naive to believe everything we read on facebook but surely wikipedia's army
6:49 am
of volunteer editors and fact checkers can keep disinformation under control? well, now click investigates evidence of possible interference by the chinese state to manipulate wikipedia for its own propaganda aims. here's carl miller. edit wars stemming from genuine differences of opinion have been part and parcel of wikipedia since the very beginning. so has vandalism, which is why wikipedia has combated it with bots and volunteers with special powers patrolling the platform day or night. but what is to stop people — or even worse, government regimes — from manipulating it for their own ends? it's something that's bothered me instinctively for over a year now. what first got me on this track were these two documents. both initially written in chinese but we had them translated into english. one is written by a chinese official. the other was written by a couple of academics. they present a playbook
6:50 am
for how wikipedia operates, strategies to influence the platform and argue there are strong reasons for doing so. strategies such as creating teams to edit on the platform and cultivating opinion leaders and using different rhetoric to change and rebalance china's image. both papers stress what a vital source of information wikipedia is for the people around the world who read it, but complain that it contains misleading and prejudiced content against china's national and governmental image. but this isn'tjust a problem to be confronted by volunteers — in the words of one of the papers, the chinese state should act proactively too. one of the places mentioned is taiwan, situated to the south—east of mainland china.
6:51 am
the island is regarded by china as a renegade province but many in taiwan dispute this understanding. so if a war on wikipedia is going to be fought anywhere it's going to be there. armed with this information, i went to meet some taiwanese wikipedians at a hackathon in the capital city taipei. this is a very crazy year. yeah, a lot of taiwanese wikipedians have been attacked and left. later on they pointed me to some examples of the kind of manipulation they say is happening on wikipedia on chinese—related issues. one concerns the very nature of taiwan itself — is it an independent nation, or in fact a province of china? the repeating editing power articles on the english and chinese wikipedia and they wipe out the taiwan and just keep the china really repeating itself. "taiwan is part of china, a province of china." it's not like outright vandalism it's just like pruning the language. shifting the language to kind of go from one thing to another. how long has it been going on for?
6:52 am
years. years? and examples kept flowing, such as the senkaku islands — a disputed territory, actually, but which for a while was china's inherent territory — at least in mandarin on the wiki data pages. although there are elected office holders with powers to take down or lock articles, some of taiwan's wikipedians fear that these elections for these positions have been targeted too, amid a general rising atmosphere of intimidation. so taiwanese wikipedians or people that voice anti—chinese opinions on wikipedia. they get attacked and trolled and abused and doxxed on wikipedia? regularly attacked. what does wikimedia global think of all of this? laughter. they don't care! is it because they are american, and theyjust don't know? the hostile words are lost in translations. heather ford has researched political edits on wikipedia. whenever you have a group of motivated and well resourced people who are taking a particular political line on wikipedia articles
6:53 am
they can very easily overwhelm the volunteer efforts of wikipedia. our own investigation has managed to find nearly 1600 times where across 20 topics or so wikipedia was changed to broadly bring its content closer to the chinese government's line. i tracked down an expert on chinese social media and cybersecurity to give me a broader sense of how this all fitted in. telling the china story has become a really important concept and idea in the last couple of years in chinese politics. they think that the rest of the world has wrong views of them, misunderstands them, and in order to do good politics 00:53:28,901 --> 2147483052:03:29,166 for them 2147483052:03:29,166 --> 4294966103:13:29,430 they need to project a good image.
