8:03 am
it's still a dynamic and dangerous situation, so we've got embers was returned this christmas was at going into mallacoota at the moment. we've got 4,000 people on the beach there that are being very well protected by our firefighters. 7:02 on christmas morning. they the australian navy could be brought in to provide food, water, don't need to know. that's the whole and power to communities isolated by the fires. point, you don't need to tell them. but you know! you are now once again, very hot temperatures and gusty winds have combined implicating me! you take the gift to make this another dangerous and destructive day. and give it to someone else. one in at least two people have died ten people will return something and several others are missing, they were given this christmas. what as dozens of blazes rage in south—eastern australia. are your rights, how confusing is the authorities say that many it, do you need a receipt? we are houses have been lost. going to answer your questions. the new south wales rural fire loads of you are getting in touch service commissioner, about this. we went to manchester shane fitzsimmons, says this and spoke to people about whether is the state's worst bushfire season on record. they want to return their gifts. the crisis shows no sign of ending. i think it was an iphone 8 that my wife bought me, and i had an iphone 9 already, for many australians, so it was, you know... the new year will bring it wasn't the ideal choice more anxiety and fear. of christmas present. phil mercer, bbc news, sydney. i once returned a present off dad.
8:04 am
0h, did you? yeah. david jeffery runs a b&b and he pretended like he was ok in mallacoota and was forced to flee with it, then you could just to the beach when the fires tell he wasn't happy. it's the biggest waste of money to give someone a present that they don't struck the area. like and then keep it. i'd much rather, like, if i gave someone a present david, thank you once again for they didn't like, i'd say, honestly, if you don't like it, speaking to us. we can see what is please tell me so we can spend happening behind you. describe what money on something else. you can see and what you have seen i think it were last year, in the last few hours? i got like a wine set or something, and i didn't necessarily u nfortu nately, in the last few hours? like what was in it, so i re—wrapped unfortunately, that's not good, it's someone‘s dreams going up, their it and gave it to someone else. precious house and hopefully the people are not there. the authorities are going out and collecting water here, doing what regifting is one thing you can do. they can. it feels like a dream, martyn james is a consumer rights expert with the complaints website resolver. hejoins me now. just unreal. the authorities have give us some tips. what you need to been amazing, honestly. ijust want know? if you've got something you don't want or like, it doesn't fit, to say, your prayers are being can you take it back? you can but answered. we had a bit of rain. there are always caveats. let's do behind me, where there are so many there are always caveats. let's do the basics. if the goods are faulty houses... after the initialfront that came through, 4000 people here or have been misrepresented, you've
8:05 am
got lots of rights under the consumer rights act. you can get a we re that came through, 4000 people here full refund within 30 days and there were safe. dealing with the wind and are other things you can do. more importantly, if you simply don't like the goods, and i know this is all sorts of things... what we going to divide the nation! laughter didn't realise, what happened next you do have a few rights but it often you do have a few rights but it ofte n co m es you do have a few rights but it often comes down to the gift receipt was just house after house after and the store policy. the law isn't house. it wasn't one house burned. that clear on what to do if you don't like something. loads of it was that bad... it's not about people are sending messages. julie says, i want to return an item but they are closed between christmas and new year. me, buti it was that bad... it's not about me, but i thank god. thank you for your prayers. thank you for all the the good news is working days can prayers. david, can i ask you about may be what's been going on with you string things out. most high street and the other people who have been on the beach? as you say, you are retailers will have extended rights over christmas but they will vary. watching houses and businesses in the background. i'm sure there must the longest ones go to the 315t of be conversations about whose houses they are and who is safe and who january but they can sometimes be a lot shorter so have a look online hasn't come to the beach for safety? and don't hesitate. thank you. so

8:19 am
menopause, we had a whole series called wake up to menopause. i was touched by so many people getting in touch to talk about their experience and the issues you are having and also to talk about the kind of love and affection in which you held your loved ones and got so much understanding about them because we talked about it. it was even mentioned in parliament. it made such a big impact and you are worried about it but having all those comments in the huge response, i think you are now thankful you did it. iam.| it. i am. i went to have a talk to some of the women part of our series or who watched it as well. here they are. i'm 47. i didn't imagine, in my complete ignorance, that that would happen to me at that age. i thought i might be sort of 55 or something. kind of these swings of mood that i'm not accustomed to. i think one of my daughters put it really well, that i just don't feel myself. i don't feel quite myself, there's something, you know, i'm a bit uncomfortable in my own skin.
8:20 am
for the first time, we saw somebody who was fresh, who's getting up at silly o'clock in the morning to go to work and showing that you can be going through the menopause and you can still be a strong woman, who is living life. you know, i'm kind of putting on a face for you when i wake up up every morning and, actually, behind—the—scenes, i was holding on by my fingernails, is what i was doing, like probably most of us are doing most of the time. 26, 27 years' service. i was responsible for international police development. and then suddenly i started going into work... ..my decision—making was becoming shocking. i was becoming really quite quickly ineffective at work and i couldn't understand why. without the hrt and my husband's support, i wouldn't be sat here today, i wouldn't be at work. i'd have resigned. one of the big things for me when i was poorly and i had
8:21 am
to take some time off was — what do i go off sick with? i went off sick with depression, but now we can go off sick with menopause—related illness. would you like that and all the other things you're doing to be rolled out across other companies as well? 0h, definitely. when you speak about what we're doing in greater manchester police, the light bulb moment happens and they're really working hard towards it. a lot of organisations around the country and the world. and it has been taboo, so i've become a meno—bore! laughter. hashtag meno—bore! wake up to the menopause! even though i'm still going up and down, the days when i have this confidence, of power, i feel strong in a way i never did before. on my good days, i'm invincible, in a way that i never, ever was before. i always used to be like quite a shy little girl sitting in the background, and now,
8:22 am
some days i'm like, shut up! just the power and strength you feel on those good days and i'm like, if this is what it's going to be like once i'm out the other side, i can't wait! wow. definitely. it is positive, you know? we shouldn't allow it to define us. it is a transition. it's a very difficult transition but, you know, i'm the other side and it is a fantastic place to be. there's a complete new sense of freedom. we met via the bbc breakfast over twitter. yeah. and after bbc breakfast, there was very much a buzz, i think, of something's happening. the genie's out of the bottle. yeah, there's a change, there's something in the air. an energy. yeah. i was in the gp‘s one night, looking at all these posters for everything, thinking, why is there not a poster for the one thing we should have? to see a list of symptoms and to be
8:23 am
able tojoin the dots yourself and go in and say, "this is what's affecting me". for me, it would have made such a difference. we've been told its going to go in every gp surgery in wales. so you've started in wales. the ambition is where, after that? everywhere! we want it all over the uk. you've been all over the world with this poster. those joyful pictures! i've taken it up to mount everest, underthe indian ocean... she is literally the poster girl for you! she's incredible, yes. absolutely. lots and lots of different places that poster's been. # we're going to take, take world by storm... i am going to ring my gp. this cannot go on any longer. # we've got magic in our bones # just like the stars, we're going to shine...
8:24 am
i'm going to use the change tojust make the most of my life. to feel more positive, to feel good about myself. # to take the world, the world by storm...#. didn't mean to make you cry! i'm feeling really positive. that's wonderful! we didn't mean to make anybody cry but i think they were tears of relief, actually, in so many ways. let's speak now to gp dr nighat arif, who specialises is women's health. you are part of our series, thank you so much for that. i want to rewind a bit because there will be new viewers. the number one thing i took away from it, i had no idea, even though i was going through it myself, that there were so many different symptoms of menopause and if you could join the dots, if people out there watching go, look
8:25 am
at what they are. i play menopause bingo with my friends now to see how many we've got! it sounds like a fun game! it can be funny. it's important to get that message across, isn't it? i think important to get that message across, isn't it? ithink you important to get that message across, isn't it? i think you have hit the nail on the head, joining those dots together and all the symptoms. there are something like 40 different symptoms and also they star quite young, early 40s. if you have one of the subtypes within menopause, it can happen even younger and that's what hits women. they realise, i shouldn't be experiencing these symptoms just yet and wake up to the menopause allow people to put the dots together, which you guys did amazingly. it made people realise that this isn't just a women's issue, it's everyone's issue. i would have meant asking me about it, boys want to know what their mother is going through. daughters wanting to talk about it. that's what's most important thing about this campaign, it became more inclusive, it's not a
8:26 am
gender issue, everyone will be affected by it. the who started all of this, make menopause matter said an amazing line, everyone knows a woman, knows a woman, loves a woman, they should be aware of what the menopause is about. for you and also louise, it's been a really positive thing in the back of notjust the conversation having on bbc breakfast that so many people became involved and having conversations and hopefully a more positive life after that. so many people did come together. you have had no the menopause ladies. and you translated into urdu for them. yes, one of the biggest thing is language barriers. these are individuals who can have their language skills and also the words in their language and what i realised, that actually i didn't know the word. i speak punjabi fluently but i didn't know the words we would use in our language so i
8:27 am
had to go away and research and found that there are actually words. what's happened is that people had started to use menopause, the english words, within their vocabulary, within their language. that has made it even more inclusive for women from south asian ethnic minority communities. that poster has gone global. and one thing, with all these different symptoms it's easy to be misdiagnosed and that brings other issues as well? yes. that thing is when you can'tjoin the dots together, like you said earlier, you start giving women the wrong diagnosis. women themselves don't believe that it could be the menopause. so we are either diagnosed with depression or especially from my community, when i see south asian women, they always complain of head to toe pain and that gets diagnosed as fibromyalgia. if that is the diagnosis they get given, they are given high—dose steroids and at higher risk of osteoporosis, one of the risk
8:28 am
factors of having the menopause anyway! you find ten years on, these ladies who are in the menopause are not being treated with things like hrt actually end up with fragility fractures. fragility fractures cost 4.4 billion in the uk on average. that is a preventable fracture if you give a woman hrt. 0r that is a preventable fracture if you give a woman hrt. or even discussed the possibility she could have it. one last question. we have done that and hopefully moved on the conversation, what now? we are going to move on and keep doing this. i keep saying 2019 is the year of the women and we are definitely going to make leaps and bounds. if i could make leaps and bounds. if i could make just make leaps and bounds. if i could makejust a make leaps and bounds. if i could make just a quick plea to everybody, please sign the make menopause matter campaign. we are up to 2500 signatures. they will find! finder and sign it, we need to get into the millions. we need to make sure eve ryo ne millions. we need to make sure everyone is aware of it. doctors get mandatory education around it and also the workplace as welcome some women are aware of their rights in
8:29 am
the workplace. also, we translated other leaflets within ethnic minority groups, there is lots of things happening. the sisters group are going leaps and bounds. south asian workshops have started. i could go on! we will continue the conversation, i promise. we need another week! i know! laughter i know you want to talk but we are literally running out of time. thank you so much for coming in. thank you for everyone who got in touch and is getting in touch now. best of luck. there is hope out there. right now, news travel and weather where you are watching. see you in a few minutes' time. i'm tarah welsh. 0n the eve of a new decade, one of our most famous landmarks turns 20. built for the millennium, the london eye was only supposed
8:30 am
to be in place for five years but is now a permanent fixture on our skyline. it was designed as part of a competition with its 32 capsules representing each one of the london boroughs. we wanted the capsules on the outside so that when you were at the very top you had an unimpeded 360 degree view, a bit like being on top of a mountain in the middle of a city. we then had to figure out how to make that work, how to keep the capsules horizontal while the wheel went around and that was complex. the landmark will be one of the key attractions in tonight's event on the south bank. 12,000 fireworks will be let off from three barges in the thames and on the london eye. and the team only has a couple of hours to rig the display. it's round about 9:30, ten o'clock, when we finally get the iron to lockdown, so two hours, two and a half hours to go till midnight. that's when we find out if we've got some of it, all of it or none of it so fingers crossed it will be all of it. it's a very anxious moment
8:31 am
when we run that test at ten o'clock in the evening with two hours to go, just praying green, green, green across the board. a reminder from the police that tonight's event is ticketed. but it's sold out so anyone without one will be turned away. don't worry though, you can always watch the coverage at home right here on bbc one. that's what i'll be doing. let's take a look at the travel situation now. 0n the tubes the picadilly line is closed between uxbridge and rayners lane. great western railway is running a reduced service today because of major engineering works. because of prepartions for tonight's event, westminster bridge will be closed from 2pm and waterloo and lambeth and blackfriars bridges will also close early this evening. will the weather hold out until the new year? here's gill brown. hello there! well, the final day of 2019 is here and it's a very misty and murky start. there's a lot of low cloud and fog around this morning, so do take care. it's also going to be a cloudy
8:32 am
end to the year. we are hanging on to that cloud. this is the scene this morning. plenty of cloud around, a very grey and overcast day on the whole. it's a little cooler than yesterday. we're still hanging onto double figures — just. top temperatures of ten degrees. but the good news — if you've plans tonight for new year's eve it should be dry. there is a of cloud, but i think nothing a few fireworks can't brighten up a little bit later on. and overnight, i think we'll see those temperatures fall away as well to around three celsius. so, it's a grey end to 2019, and a bit of a grey start to 2020 as well. it will still be feeling mild. we're hanging onto those temperatures as we get to the end of the week. but it is going to be a very overcast start to 2020. have a very happy new year. i'll see you soon. i'm back with the latest from the bbc london newsroom at lunchtime. plenty more on our website at the usual address. now though it's back to louise and dan.
8:33 am
hello. this is breakfast with dan walker and louise minchin. let's get you up to date with our main story here. helicopters and navy vessels are being sent to help tackle the australian bushfires, and rescue a number of people stranded on beaches because of the blazes. at the same time, volunteers have been working around the clock to provide support for people who have been affected. noel clement is the ceo of red cross australia. hejoins us now from melbourne. good morning and thank you very much indeed forjoining us. how are you helping and what are the biggest issues? the red cross is involved in around 60 evacuation centres over recent months and particularly in recent months and particularly in recent days. victoria, we have seven or eight evacuation centres. we are providing psychological first 80 people dealing with really significant trauma at a time like this. —— first aid to people. we are providing basic food and water. and other support to people who have
8:34 am
lost their homes, we are providing direct financial assistance. it must bea direct financial assistance. it must be a credibly difficult time for them. what financial assistance can you give them if they have lost their homes? it is a difficult time for many people in those communities. many people don't know if they have lost their homes. they are in evacuation areas and evacuation centres. it is a really difficult time and people are very anxious and uncertain. volunteers are providing really practical psychological first aid support to people. 0nce psychological first aid support to people. once we do know whether people. once we do know whether people have lost their homes, there is all sorts of support that we can provide. we have emergency grants which we are providing at the moment right through to longer—term recovery to be there communities because we can take some time to a number of years to get people back on their feet. we are seeing pictures of communities devastated by the fires. and we know that helicopters are now helping and the navy has been sent in. it's enough
8:35 am
being done, i suppose that is the question? events are moving very quickly. if you had talked to me yesterday, we had nowhere near the scale of events that are happening in some areas. some of the fires have doubled in size over 24 hours and it is very fast moving. a lot of agencies are doing all they can to support communities. keep in mind that in one area alone there evacuated an area half the size of belgium, soa evacuated an area half the size of belgium, so a massive area to evacuate in a 24 hour period. and looking to the future, how will you continue with your help? we are actually doing some fundraising tonight with our national broadcaster as part of new year's eve. that is to enable us to scale up eve. that is to enable us to scale up our support to those communities and to be there for communities that u nfortu nately we and to be there for communities that unfortunately we know will be impacted in the future. it is very early in oursummer impacted in the future. it is very early in our summer season. we have been responding to disasters since september and ordinarily peppery and much would be the busiest time for
8:36 am
bushfires. sadly there is a long time still ahead and we are keen to be there to support communities through these events. best of luck with all of that. noel clement from the red cross australia. thank you for joining the red cross australia. thank you forjoining us on breakfast. good morning. 8:36am. new years day tomorrow and lots to look forward to in 2020. john is here tomorrow with one of the topics of debate which has caused a lot of issues. it is interesting reading the papers today. they have put forward a premier league table as to how it would look without var. who is top? actually, livable! but we know they have a 13 point lead and it would only be six points without var, so it goes to show how previous seasons might have looked if the technology had been there. and a number of incidents over the weekend have prompted the debate about whether var should be used for offside and it is interesting to know that the rule makers of football think it is
8:37 am
being used to forensically. lukas brud, the general secretary of the ifab, says there may need to be a re—adjustment around var and its use. he said when it comes to offside var should not be too forensic and should only be used to reverse clear and obvious errors. the debate raging after a number of offide incidents over the weekend. suggestions that there could be a change to the rule. the brighton head coach graham potter says he's not sure where the use of the technogolgy will end. the next thing we're going to do is probably get rid of the referees, get rid of the linesmen, because we want everything so correct. i don't understand why we want that. but if we want everything so correct, then in the end just do away with linesmen, referees, put drones up, use computers, artificial intelligence. and i'm sure we'll get all the decisions correct, but i don't think anybody will really like football any more. i'm not sure that they will come any time soon. —— that day.
8:38 am
david moyes had a strong response to any west ham fans unhappy with his appointment as manager. he said winning is what he does and that the club are getting a very experienced manager. west ham are 17th in the table. he'll be in the dugout for their game with bournemouth tomorow. well, i'd say that what they're getting here with me here is a very experienced premier league manager. arguably there is only two or three who have got more experience, games in the premier league. i think i've probably got the biggest win rate out of a certain amount of managers as well. so i think if you're putting it that way, that's what i do, i win. and i'm coming here to west ham initially to try and get us wins and away from the wrong end of the table. a defiant david moyes. michael van gerwen is one match away from successfully defending his title at the world darts championship. the world number one is through to the final after beating nathan aspinall six sets to three. van gerwen's trying to win the title for a fourth time. and you won't miss his opponent, peter wright, who beat gerwyn price. this was a much frostier affair.
8:39 am
wright egging him on after winning the first set. but price got his own back after winning the second set, letting rip with a huge cheer which was directed at wright. but wright kept his cool to win it. no handshakes at the end though. a little bit better between the two as the fans celebrated that victory. —— bitter. you won't miss it, will you? you —— bitter. you won't miss it, will you ? you never —— bitter. you won't miss it, will you? you never do. some serious gear. that roaring gets on his way as he heads towards the dartboard and you think to yourself... it is a good job christmas has gone because there wouldn't be any presence between them. we are talking about how to retain christmas presents shortly actually. —— how to return christmas presents.
8:40 am
atjust 21, anna taylor scaled new heights when she became the first woman to complete one of the toughest climbs in the world. she was part of a six—strong team to trek through 33 miles of south american rainforest before taking on the 2000—feet wall of mount roraima. we'll hear how she did it in a moment but first let's take
8:41 am
anna taylor is here now. just watching that makes me nervous! well done to you. fantastic. just tell us about the difficulty of the climb first of all. yes, the rock face itself is 400 metres high and it took us two weeks to reach it in the first place and it is incredibly steep so the climbing is really physical. it was quite a challenge. just give people an idea. you are going up the face here thatjust
8:42 am
before you get to the sheer face, which is the height of ben nevis to climb, which is a difficult climb on its own before you get to the 400 metres of cliff face. yes, the approach in some ways was more difficult than the climbing itself. we did about a week ofjungle trekking from a very remote village to reach the base of the approach to the wall, which took seven days, 100 kilometres through the jungle. from there, this action is the height of ben nevis and you gain all that height and we had to take all our stuff in the bottom of this to the 00:42:34,494 --> 2147483051:58:03,275 bottom of the world, and so we had 2147483051:58:03,275 --> 4294966103:13:29,430 to
