good morning welcome to breakfast with charlie stayt and naga munchetty. our headlines today. murderers who refuse to reveal the whereabouts of their victims bodies could spend longer behind bars under new plans unveiled by the government. conservative leadership vote blunder — two ballot papers instead of one have been sent to some party members. welcome to wimbledon, where the fairy tale continues for 15—year—old coco gauff. the american saved two match points to beat slovenia's polona hercog and become the youngest player in the last 16 for almost 30 years. if i could be able to help a young person in the same state i was in then i know
that they would be able to be lifted. game of thrones star emilia clarke tells breakfast how having a stroke in her 20s has led her to back calls for more support for young victims. good morning. a lot of fine weather on the way across the uk this weekend but a little bit of a change in the way things feel — some fresher air blowing in from the north. more on the way things are looking in a few moments. it's saturday, the 6th ofjuly. our top story. murderers who refuse to reveal the location of a victim's body could be forced to spend longer in prison under a new law. the legal change, known as helen's law, follows campaigning by the mother of helen mccourt, who was killed in 1988 — but whose body was never found. ben ando reports. for 31 years, marie mccourt has been fighting for helen's law, named after her daughter who was just 22 when she was
abducted and murdered in 1988. her killer, pub landlord ian simms. he has never reveal the whereabouts of helen's body. to ta ke to take a life is horrendous but then to take the lives of the family of the loved one and not let them know where their loved one's body is, there is no torture worse than that. i could say i've had a dripping tap on my head for the last 31 yea rs. dripping tap on my head for the last 31 years. it's far worse than that. it's a pain in your heart that will never go. marie led a campaign demanding that murderers who refused to disclose the whereabouts of a victim's remains spend longer behind bars. in 2016, mps voted in favour of helen's law, but it did not receive government backing until now. withjustice secretary david gauke proposing that it be introduced as soon as practicable. the parole board can already use withholding information as a reason
not to release a prisoner because it suggests there is still an ongoing risk to the public. but it's optional. helen's law changes that. it makes factoring it in a legal requirement. even now, marie lights candles every week at her home in merseyside. although she still does not know where her daughter's remains are, the creation of helen's law may provide some comfort — especially if it means other families won't have to face both the pain of loss and the agony of not knowing. ben ando, bbc news. some conservative party members have been sent two ballot papers for the leadership contest instead of one, the bbc has uncovered. it's estimated more than 1,000 people have been affected. the papers have been sent out to conservatives around the uk to allow them to vote for the next party leader — and prime minister. 0ur political correspondent peter saull is in our london newsroom with more on this. take us through what we know has
gone wrong. as you say, one internal party figure told us more than 1000 people have got two ballot papers by mistake through the post. we don't know the exact figure, the party can't tell us exactly how widespread this issue is. we know that it effects people registered for two different local conservative associations and it might affect people who had changed their names after getting married. 0thers people who had changed their names after getting married. others who have got one name and one address and members of one conservative association, have for some reason got two ballot papers. this can happen in general elections as well, if you're registered at two different places. students are the most obvious example. the difference here is there is no clear oversight. ina here is there is no clear oversight. in a normal election, the electoral commission - the courts have commission and the courts have powers to make sure people don't abuse the system whereas this is up to the conservative party itself to police the issue and they say it's
written clearly on each ballot paper you can only vote once in this election and if you don't you'll be kicked out of the party. 23rd of july will know who has won and he's the next prime minister, what happens between now and then? today there are two more hustings in nottingham and cardiff. these hustings have been pretty well attended and the hype is for the underdog jeremy hunt that he can win over some of those people that say they will back boris johnson over some of those people that say they will back borisjohnson through these hustings, and then the remaining tv appearances. there is a debate on itv on tuesday and then a couple of interviews with andrew neil on friday. there is a poll out today suggesting jeremy hunt has an awful lot of ground to make up. borisjohnson still very much the favourite to win this race and into and a half weeks we will know exactly which of those two men will be walking through the famous black front door on downing street. thank you.
one of britain's most senior female asian police officers has accused the metropolitan police of discrimination. parm sandhu has begun legal action against the force, claiming she was denied promotion on the basis of her race and gender. last month, she was cleared of allegations that she'd breached rules about the police honours process. the met said it was "inappropriate" to comment. southern california has been rattled by its strongest earthquake in two decades. the 7.1 magnitude quake comes just a day after another powerful tremor hit the area, which itself had broken the 20—year—record. some limited damage has been reported so far, but no casualties. the hiv prevention drug prep is a step closer to being made available to anyone who needs it through the nhs in england. currently, places on a three—year trial are limited. but sexual health campaigners say there are still many barriers to overcome before the drug can be offered more widely. the duke and duchess of sussex will christen their son later today.
archie harrison mountbatten—windsor will be baptised by the archbishop of canterbury in the private chapel of windsor castle in front of close family and friends. however there's been criticism of the couple for keeping the details of the ceremony private. the uk's biggest pride event is set to get under way today, but there are concerns the event has become so big that it's not as inclusive as it once was. this year members of london's trans community will hold their own event, following protests which blocked the route last year. more than1 million people are expected to attend pride over the weekend. a new record high temperature has been set in the american state of alaska — part of which lies inside the arctic circle. it reached 32 degrees celsius in anchorage on thursday. the average temperature there at this time of year is 18. climate change researchers say it's a worrying development. seven women who were stopped from graduating as doctors 150 years ago, are to be awarded posthumous honorary degrees in medicine. the "edinburgh seven" were amongst the first women admitted
to a british university when they enrolled in 1869. but they faced prejudice from their male peers and were preventing from qualifying as doctors. seven female students from edinburgh medical school will pick up the certificates on their behalf. everyone loves it when a new sculpture is unveiled and you get to see whether it's a good likeness or not. a sculpture of the american first lady, melania trump, has been unveiled in her home country of slovenia. they are enjoying it. but the life—size wooden statue has prompted mixed reviews. it's been carved out of a tree trunk with a chainsaw and depicts melania in the blue dress she wore at donald trump's inauguration in 2017.
exactly the same, is it? similar. the devil is in the detail. blue boots as well. it's all part of one giant carving, it's carved out of the tree itself, if you see what i mean. it's all one thing. so the tree is still alive? it looks like it. we've been asking you if you have a particular favourite sculptures, we are always serious. we will show you some corkers at 9:30am. the duke and duchess of sussex will christen their baby, archie harrison mountbatten—windsor, today in the private chapel of windsor castle. but harry and meghan caused some controversy when they announced the event will be held privately and that details, like the names of godparents, will not be released. the royal commentator victoria murphy is outside buckingham palace to talk more about this. good morning. it's almost like a
backlash against not knowing what's going on, what do you make of it?|j think it's interesting, the christening held today, buckingham palace have released some details about the christening. it will be in the private chapel of windsor castle, the archbishop of canterbury will conduct the service, charles, camilla, william and kate will be there. archie will wear the traditional royal christening gown. so far so traditional. however, the couple have decided not to allow the media to capture the arrivals of the christening which is something the cambridges did. they've also decided to keep names of godparents private, which we would expect to be released. it's important to point out that royal christening services themselves have always been private. the service has always been private, so the service has always been private, so there is no change, and the couple are going to release their own images taken by photographer
chris ellison. you could say they are tweeting convention rather than ripping it up but this has caused debate because £2.11 million of taxpayers money was spent renovating their official residence. what the debate centres around is what is it reasonable to expect a publicly funded members of the royalfamily to share in exchange for the funding they receive. is it the case it's just the official engagements, the duties and work they should be able to do publicly, or does the public have a reasonable expectation to have a reasonable expectation to have implementation and a certain amount of access to milestone moments? and crucially, who does not extend to? harry and meghan are working royal spot archie isn't. it's a big debate sparked by relatively small changes to convention. why isn't archie likely to bea
convention. why isn't archie likely to be a working royal? he is unlikely to grow up to carry out official duties on a full—time basis, in the same way that princess beatrice and princess eugenie don't, and the children of princess anne's don't either. he's far enough down the life of succession that his life is unlikely to be taken up with public duties and he won't be publicly funded. what's interesting about the situation is there is clearly a lot of support for and megan —— for harry and meghan when it comes to raising archie out of the public eye. things like going to school, going out on the weekend. people find themselves on the wrong side of public opinion if they are intruding. however, whether or not that level of goodwill and support extends to them wanting to have more privacy done has been convention i think there is a bigger question about that. we see that with this
debate being sparked now. really good to talk to you. thank you. it's saturday morning in earlyjuly, lots of things are going on at the weekend. what's the picture for today? it's not looking too bad this weekend. if you've been with us this morning, we've been bringing you pictures of sunshine to the south of the uk and we are going to take a look at the far north, tojohn 0'groats and the sun is trying to come through the cloud here. we will see perhaps a few showers across northern scotland today. there's also a weather front sinking south and some rain coming into some areas. nothing too heavy. the biggest difference behind the front with cooler weather sinking south. that's what it looks like in terms of the weather chart. bringing some patchy outbreaks of rain but many
places will brighten behind the front and not all areas will see the rain. we will point out that front gets into the london area later today, potentially with more of a downpour associated with it. we could see the cover is coming on at wimbledon before close of play. certainly a cooler day today with temperatures around 25. more cloud today. we will see some widespread sunshine here. there is the front clouding things up across south wales with rain through into east anglia. brighter skies to the north. anglia. brighter skies to the north. a cooler, fresher feel as we switch round to a northerly wind with a fuchsia was continuing across northern and eastern scotland. quite breezy for scotland too, enhancing the cooler seal. if you're heading out this evening, most of the showers to the north clearing, there will be a bit of rain again across
the south—east of england. fresher behind the front by the end of the night. in england after a warm night. in england after a warm night. on sunday, a lot of fine weather to come. if you've got events planned, they shouldn't be any great cause for interruption but it could be on the cool side. disappointing in terms of temperatures on the north sea coasts. still a feature was for northern scotland. 0ne coasts. still a feature was for northern scotland. one or two across the higher ground of northern england can't be ruled out, particularly targeting the pennines. to the south, 21—22. then it looks like we will be keeping those fairly average temperatures into next week. no pronounced heatwave on the way but still a bit of dry weather on monday. looking at some changes by the middle of the week whipping is becoming more unsettled and some showers in the story. —— with things becoming more unsettled. the game of thrones star, emilia clarke, is launching a campaign for improved treatment
for young patients who suffer a stroke, after she experienced two life—threatening aneurysms eight years ago. speaking exclusively to bbc breakfast, the actor told us how she wants to see more specialist stroke teams in england, and more rehabilitation nurses trained. john maguire went to meet her. we have to go home. for the past eight years, one of the main characters in one of the world's biggest television shows has been portrayed by emilia clarke. but after filming the first series of game of thrones, the actress best known as the mother of dragons, while still in her mid—20s, suffered two brain haemorrhages. she says recovery and rehabilitation was tough. it is something that's been perceived to happen to older people. therefore, when you're a younger person experiencing it, there's a whole host of other kind of mental health aspects that largely go unnoticed. and that's what i care about incredibly deeply, because that's what i experienced
as a young person who had it. as a result of her experience, through her charity, called sameyou, and as an ambassador for the royal college of nursing, she wants to improve the care for younger stroke patients. because i had an incredibly loving, supportive family and friendship group, and i had the incredible care of two specialist nurses, i got that whole aspect. and i saw where the gaps were, i saw where i needed to help myself, in that way. and so what i want to do, more than anything, is to be able to give young people who have a stroke the opportunity to have those for them as well. i put so much pressure on myself to be feeling normal, and it was that — it was that strain that exhausted me more than anyone else. it's just this fear of, "i'm not meant to be feeling like this. "i'm meant to be ok now. "you have told me i'm 0k. "why don't i feel 0k still?"
and, if i could be able to help a young person who is in the same state that i was in, then i know that they would be able to be lifted and feel lighter in themselves, and that's just such a goal. ..rightful heir to the iron throne. earlier this year, her game of thrones co—star kit harrington spoke out about how the end of the show had affected his mental health. kit was incredibly open about how he felt at the end of the show, and he's brilliant at what he does because he feels that, because he put his heart and soul into it. so, yeah, encouraging that kind of behaviour across the board, i think, willjust make it better. she is ruling out any return to the long, blonde locks in any prequel that may be made. i think there's something that's beginning from much before, but i don't really know too much about it, because it won't be me. it won't be you? the heat is turning down a little bit, for sure. which is lovely, because i'm hell—bent on living a normal life.
i sort of won't give that up for anything. a game of thrones star talking about such an important issue. i didn't know anything about that story. also just to highlight it for younger people because we associate strokes with older people. time now for a look at the newspapers. anne—marie imafidon, who campaigns to get more girls engaged with science, is here to tell us what's caught her eye. borisjohnson is set for a "landslide" win in the race for number 10, suggests a poll in the times. the paper also features a story about one of britian's "richest and most powerful figures", who has been granted secrecy orders, preventing details of alleged sexual harassment and assault claims becoming public. the paper has blacked out the name of the person involved. the daily mirror leads on our top story, which is that killers
who refuse to reveal the whereabouts of bodies could be denied parole. the guardian reports that universities are failing to tackle "endemic racism" against students and staff. the paper also features a picture of 15—year—old coco gauff celebrating her victory at wimbledon yesterday. and a picture of serena williams and andy murray practising for their highly anticipated first mixed doubles appearance at wimbledon makes the front of the telegraph. isn't mike saying that game might happen this evening? ann marie, lovely to have you with us. we are talking about language exams. 0ur children not choosing to learn second languages? the sign up is down 30% over five years for french and spanish gcse. we are finding students are opting not to take
language exams, even though it's an option they have because they don't feel like it something they are going to pass. a couple of weeks ago there was a survey that came out around second languages spoken across the eu and of course, our spirits were down there at the bottom as people who don't speak any other language. the theory is stu d e nts other language. the theory is students are concerned they won't pass, not that they don't think it's worthwhile? there has been a sense generally that languages have been a bit parked. informally we aren't speaking other languages as a nation. you have many languages, right? yes. at one point i started dreaming in french because i was flue nt dreaming in french because i was fluent in french. that's brilliant. and mandarin. mandarin, greek. so you're an advert for having many languages at your expose —— at your
disposal. is it a useful tool? languages at your expose —— at your disposal. is it a usefultool? in life in general, definitely. we've got events next weekend across the uk of young women who are dimming technology and coming back and speaking to others. 0ne technology and coming back and speaking to others. one of our hosts has been living in switzerland and has been living in switzerland and has built a travel tech business and she's been able to build that across these different countries from speaking different languages. we are one island, there is a whole world out there we will be doing more trade with, so knowing languages so you're not ta ken trade with, so knowing languages so you're not taken advantage of in a market when you're bartering, there's lots of reasons why we need them. and just saying things in english very loud stubbly very loudly and very slowly doesn't count. -- saying things very lovely and very slowly doesn't count. this isa and very slowly doesn't count. this is a piece in the sun on page 18.
the menopause has been added to the curriculum. it's amazing to think it hasn't been there up until this time, it's natural and hasn't been there up until this time, it's naturaland happens hasn't been there up until this time, it's natural and happens to women. it's weird it's not been part of it, that we are going to talk about this now rather than it being about this now rather than it being a surprise when we were older. we did a week on the menopause on this programme and it was amazing, just to dispel some of the myths. and for it not to be safe to be —— for it not to be temper mac are you might have grandparents, older people in your life, and a better understanding of what's coming. really welcome news. understanding of what's coming. really welcome newslj understanding of what's coming. really welcome news. i minded stories in the past where fashion has got controversial. wasn't there
a story about whether you should be allowed to wear a hoodie up? this is to do with what stormzy wore stop a yes, this was a stab vest he bought to open the beginning of his set. yes, this was a stab vest he bought to open the beginning of his setm was designed by banksy and there has beena was designed by banksy and there has been a debate about whether we should be glamorising this. what i wanted to pick up on is it's become a fashionable item. famously, stab vests are used by the police in this country and are built to the mail physique. we've got lots of stories that have come out and lots of cases of injuries and sometimes death of female police officers who have removed their stab vest because they are uncomfortable and they've gone oi'i are uncomfortable and they've gone on and been injured as a result of not having the right uniform —— they are built to the male physique. many shopping. malls
have banned hoodies. disputed songs by the beatles. this new danny boyle film is about, imagine if the beatles had never existed. it's an interesting story. it's been reported slightly differently across papers, one said its artificial intelligence being used to tell which songs were better than others but this is a harvard investigation where they've built this algorithm to try and tell who wrote which lines in each song. what's the point? have they come up with a verdict? they have, based on the patterns of lennon versus mccartney. it's who is the better beatles song
writer. two questions. who cares, because the songs are good anyway? is this more and experiment with al, say what it can be used for? yes, it's an experiment in pattern matching and how much you can go backin matching and how much you can go back in time and say this is the mark of this person and that person. but alsojust being mark of this person and that person. but also just being able to analyse the lyrics. there is an obvious problem with bothering with using technology for this which is can't we just technology for this which is can't wejust ask paul technology for this which is can't we just ask paul mccartney? do you believe him? there are three sides to any story. if he says so... john lennon isn't here to defend himself! is that a good use of that science? that's always my question with these things. just because we can, does it mean we should? are there other
things we should be looking at to pick out whether it's statements given to police ? pick out whether it's statements given to police? lie detectors? or legal cases. there are other places we could be applying this. it's a shout out to harvard and others, maybe look for something slightly better to analyse. you are going to give marriage advice stubbly yes, someone give marriage advice stubbly yes, someone who is about to get marriage. congratulations! -- yes, as someone marriage. congratulations! -- yes, as someone who is about get married. there is a survey and what we need to do is make sure we've got separate tvs and separate netflix accounts and each other's phone passwords. that's nonsense. laughter don't go to sleep on an argument. that's sensible. why do you need two tvs 7 that's sensible. why do you need two tvs? they've just said this is what the recommendation has been from the
survey. are you going to take that particular piece of advice on board? no, ilike particular piece of advice on board? no, i like watching tv together. unless it's game of thrones. kissing regularly is the secret to a good relationship, that's a surprise! laughter talk to your successfully married friends. exactly. your thing is about education and getting more people into the sciences. girls in particular, getting underrepresented groups into science and technology. thank you. we're on bbc one until ten
o'clock this morning, when glynn purnell takes over in the saturday kitchen. glynn — what's on the menu? how are you? good, it's good to be on the news. i've been engaged to the 22 years so maybe i should get married. you've been engaged for 22 yea rs ? married. you've been engaged for 22 years? i'm frightened of commitment! what we really need is the secret to a happy, long engagement from you. cook like me and they won't leave you! laughter they'll stay forever! laughter my guest today is the fantasticjon richardson. what is your ultimate food worry? living with you and never being allowed to leave. laughter what would be
heaven? lentils. i don't think anyone has ever said lentils on this show. i think they are the saviour of the world. good protein, you can make dips, stews. you might as well cook it for yourself! we've got a beautiful lentil dish with some cauliflower. what about hell? walnuts. they look and taste disgusting. i just walnuts. they look and taste disgusting. ijust think walnuts. they look and taste disgusting. i just think they are foul. they've got a really bitter taste. i can't promise much but i'll try. don't bother, save yourself the time. tommy, what are you cooking? tommy, what are you cooking ?l tommy, what are you cooking? a dish with courgettes from my farm, and have also picked the stocks in the plant and i will turn them into pasta. and you have to do chocolate? vegan chocolate desert, a brownie
cake, and some maple chocolate truffles. sounds fantastic. and what a re—drinking with that shirt? ! it is sunshine and fabric. we have two gold medal winning vegan friendly wines. 0ne beautifully refreshing, the other is fabulously sweet as it is filthy. you guys at home are in charge ofjohn's fate. and we will see you at ten o'clock. did ijust hear that you have a filthy wine? see you at ten o'clock. did ijust hear that you have a filthy wine ?m filthy as it is fabulous. if you miss it you will miss out. see you later. looks like you have lots of fun. that has unnerved me a little bit! the headlines in a moment.
coming up before ten, we'll have all the weekend weather but first, a summary of this morning's main news. murderers who refuse to reveal the location of a victim's body could be forced to spend longer in prison under a new law. the legal change, known as helen's law, follows campaigning by the mother of helen mccourt, who was killed in 1988 — but whose body was never found. ben ando reports. for 31 yea rs for 31 years marie mccourt has been fighting for helen's law, named after her daughter, who was just 22 when she was abducted and murdered in 1988. her killer, pub landlord ian simms, has never revealed the whereabouts of helen's body. to take a life is horrendous, but then to ta ke a life is horrendous, but then to take the lives of the family of that loved one, and not let them know where their loved one's body is, there is no torture worse than that.
i could say i have had a dripping tap on my head for the last 31 yea rs. tap on my head for the last 31 years. it is far worse than that. it isa pain years. it is far worse than that. it is a pain in your heart that will never go. marie led a campaign demanding that murderers who refused to disclose the whereabouts of evicting's remains spend longer behind bars. in 2016 mps voted in favour of helen's law, but it did not receive government backing until now, with thejustice secretary proposing that it be introduced as soon as proposing that it be introduced as soon as is practicable. the parole board can already use withholding information is a reason not to release a prisoner, because it suggests they are still an ongoing risk to the public. but it is optional. helen's law changes that, and makes factoring it in a legal requirement. even now, marie lights candles every week at our home on merseyside. although she still does not know where her daughter's remains are, the creation of helen's
law may provide some comfort, especially if it means other families will not have to face both the pain of loss and the agony of not knowing. up to 1,000 conservative party members have been sent two ballot papers, instead of one, for the leadership election, a bbc investigation has uncovered. 160,000 people are being sent postal ballots as they decide whether to endorse borisjohnson orjeremy hunt to be the next prime minister. a party spokesman said the ballot holds clear instructions that members voting more than once would be expelled. one of britain's most senior female asian police officers has accused the metropolitan police of discrimination. parm sandhu has begun legal action against the force, claiming she was denied promotion on the basis of her race and gender. last month, she was cleared of allegations that she'd breached rules about the police honours process. the met said it was "inappropriate" to comment. the hiv prevention drug prep is a step closer to being made available to anyone who needs it through the nhs in england. currently, places on a three—year trial are limited.
but sexual health campaigners say there are still many barriers to overcome before the drug can be offered more widely. southern california has been rattled by its strongest earthquake in two decades. the 7.1 magnitude quake comes just a day after another powerful tremor hit the area, which itself had broken the 20—year—record. some limited damage has been reported so far, but no casualties. the uk's biggest pride event is set to get underway today, but there are concerns the event has become so big that it's not as inclusive as it once was. this year, members of london's trans community will hold their own event, following protests which blocked the route last year. more than one million people are expected to attend pride over the weekend. the duke and duchess of sussex will christen their son later today. archie harrison mountbatten—windsor will be baptised by the archbishop of canterbury in the private chapel of windsor castle. however there's been criticism of the couple for keeping
the details of the ceremony private, as aisling mcveigh reports. when archie mountbatten—windsor arrived, there were no photos on the hospital steps. instead, an overjoyed prince harry made the announcement. it was amazing, absolutely incredible. we're just so thrilled to have our own little bundle ofjoy. the public weren't introduced to archie for another two days. today's royal christening will be another private event. there will be no television coverage and no press photographers have been invited. the duke and duchess have expressed a desire to raise their son archie out of the spotlight, choosing to release photographs on their instagram as and when. royal watchers can expect some privately ta ken photographs from the christening this afternoon. normally, a list of godparents would be released but this time, says the palace, their names will be kept private. coming so swiftly after the revelation that almost £2.5 million of taxpayers' money was spent renovating a property
for harry and meghan, it has raised questions about royal visibility. aisling mcveigh, bbc news. a new record high temperature has been set in the american state of alaska, part of which lies inside the arctic circle. it reached 32 degrees celcius in anchorage on thursday. the average temperature there at this time of year is 18. climate change researchers say it's a worrying development. seven women who were stopped from graduating as doctors 150 years ago, are to be awarded posthumous honorary degrees in medicine. the "edinburgh seven" were amongst the first women admitted to a british university when they enrolled in 1869. but they faced prejudice from their male peers and were preventing from qualifying as doctors. seven female students from edinburgh medical school will pick up the certificates on their behalf. those are the main
stories this morning. a sculpture of the american first lady, melania trump, has been unveiled in her home country of slovenia. but the life—size wooden statue has prompted mixed reviews. it's been carved out of a treetrunk with a chainsaw and depicts melania in the blue dress she wore at donald trump's inauguration in 2017. i think it stands out nicely in the countryside, and why not? it is bright and colourful, and clearly done with some care, albeit like other statues unveiled in the past, not necessarily a clear likeness. that's not necessarily the most important thing. remember this infamous sculpture of the footballer cristiano ronaldo
at madeira airport? it was eventually replaced after being widely mocked by fans. and this, of a wild—haired diego maradona was unveiled in india. critics said it looked like someone's gran. footballer mo salah also had his likeness ridiculed. i quite like that one. what do you like about it? it is scary! some people said it looked like leo sayer, i thought it looked like margaret thatcher. and finally, tennis stars are not immune either. here's andy murray looking suitably delighted to be next to his sculpture in shanghai. the costume is a little curious. and
the likeness that my? it is a warrior costume, it is in shanghai, it is like a chinese warrior, like the terracotta army warriors. because he is a warrior. makes perfect sense! speaking of warriors, a 15 year player playing at wimbledon. just some of the highlights we can expect. this is a yardstick, and this is how the get the net at the right height, which has to be at one yard in the middle. ten o'clock, not long to wait, the crowd starting to come in. dan wait, the crowd starting to come in. da n eva ns wait, the crowd starting to come in. dan evans will be warming up for his match on number one court. this is a bumper day, many brits involved.
first up on centre court is harriet dart. coco gauff, coming back from two match points to become the youngest player in the last 16 for nearly 30 years. a stunning evening on centre court. teenagers, right? always listening to their music. she has a pretty good excuse, though — this is quite a big occasion. she's got to zone in. but not since 1990 have we seen anything quite like this. jennifer capriati, as a 1a—year—old, reached the fourth round that year. commentator: well, that's an inspired shot, i must say! and what stands out most about gauff, despite being just 15, is her composure, playing shots that those double her age would be proud of. up until now, the occasion has seemed utterly untroubling, but maybe here, signs of stress — a double fault to hand hercog the first set.
but if you doubt her bottle, have a look at this. going for the line takes guts — even more so when facing match point. and so, to a tie—break to keep her in the match. yes! and we are one set all here! it's hard not to feel something. back in business then, backed up by some backhand brilliance. hercog played the unenviable role of pantomime villain, but added spice to the match for stop henman hill has a new hero. they could sense a seminal moment. 0ver has a new hero. they could sense a seminal moment. over to you, koko. the noise tells you everything you need to know. simply astonishing. she is not old enough to board certain roller—coaster is, but the ride continues. the crowd was amazing, even when i was down match point they were still cheering me
on, and i'm thankful they believed in me. hunger, character, talent. coco will be labelled a champion in the making but is already playing title winning tennis. and she is back in action today alongsidejane and she is back in action today alongside jane clark. to france next, where the women's world cup draws to a close this weekend. the united states play the netherlands in the final tomorrow, but this afternoon england play sweden in the third place play—off. jane dougall is in nice. not the position england wanted to be in — they wanted to be in the final — but they'll be wanting to finish on a high. yes, beautiful though nice is, they didn't want to come back year, they wa nted didn't want to come back year, they wanted to stay in lyon and b in the final. the whole of the squad, and phil neville truly believed we could beat the usa, and not to do so was
heartbreaking, especially after missing that penalty. it has taken the squad a couple of days but they have picked themselves up and they say that now they are galvanised and they are looking forward to salvaging something from this world cup, and going home with a medal in this third—place play—off. four yea rs this third—place play—off. four years ago england won bronze at the world cup in canada and several of the members of this current squad we re the members of this current squad were in that squad. they don't want to do worse than they did four years ago, and equally there were some women who were not in that squad four years ago who don't have a world cup medal. to go with something as tangible as a bronze medal would be a great achievement. it is always difficult to win a medal at a world cup, and phil neville has said that when this tournament is done, he wants to look back on it and know that england have played to the best of their ability. we want to win this game. i want to send a message to my players that this game is important. we do — we do have certain positions that we will need to freshen up
in, but my players know, they are under no illusions that this game is one we want to win. we want to go away from this world cup with something to show for the hard work we have put in but also, six wins, one defeat sounds better than five wins and two defeats, so i want to be laying on a sunbed next week happy that we have finished the tournament well and not finished on two defeats. england are the favourites for this match. sweden have struggled in attack. there are a few familiar faces in the swedish squad. two of their defenders both play for chelsea. and until recently so that their goalkeeper. she left at the end of the season. their key forward is available for that match, and thatis is available for that match, and that is crucial, because she was suspended for the match against the netherlands. it was a very tight
match, just one goal separating the two sides, and it had to go to extra time. the swedes will be tired because they have played four more minutes than england. hopefully that will be to england's advantage later today. looking at the england squad, centre back millie bright will not be available following that red card she received during the usa match. and we don't know who will be in goal because karen bardsley had a hamstring injury, making her unavailable for the usa game, so it could be carly telford. we do know that karen carney will play some pa rt that karen carney will play some part today. it will be her final match as an england player and phil neville has said she will earn her 144th neville has said she will earn her mirth cap. thanks, jane. can't wait to watch that later on the bbc. accurate wimbledon, we are going to talk about some unsung heroes. the people you see in the background, doing so
much work in the heat, the ball girls. i know how hard they train, although it back since october. but we'll see how disciplined they are compared to me, the dishevelled mess. 0ur ball by will show me how to throw and catch a ball, before we talk to them. look how he is standing! so precise. i caught it at least. it's the speed, isn't it? aisha, how about this? you did about an hourfor that aisha, how about this? you did about an hour for that coco gauff match. use our inaction. what was it like? the atmosphere on centre, everyone was cheering and it's really loud. it makes it even more amazing to be pa rt it makes it even more amazing to be part of the wimbledon experience. how does the training kick in? you have to keep so cool. you cannot react to what is going on around
you. yes, they preparers really well. when we are on court we know what we are doing,. do you think about your friends watching? definitely. my parents came yesterday. aaron, you have been doing this forfour yesterday. aaron, you have been doing this for four years, done some big matches. we see the players collecting towels and giving back the bulls, who are the polite ones? all the tennis player is always say please and thank you. but just all the tennis player is always say please and thank you. butjust being able to do such things like hand the towel to the player, that little gesture as they say thank you, it's a nice feeling. how fit do you have to be? the training is back to 0ctober. to be? the training is back to october. yes, you train all year round which keeps you in good shape. so you're ready for that one hour shift in court. and you have to be so shift in court. and you have to be so alert. your reactions have to be razor—sharp. you have to react to
balls coming at you if it is a server that may be 130 mph. yes, you have to read the ball, and without that way on the serve, you have to be really alert and really on it. you are brilliant at reacting to those polls. you are going to show me some things now. i'll try to improve my skills. we'll get some new balls and get practising. but for now, back to you in the studio. looking lovely there. even in the heat of battle, those players, when they ask for the towel, they say please and thank you, which i think is nice. as you should! absolutely. here's susan with a look at this morning's weather. absolutely, and i will start with a thank you. our weather watchers are helping us tell our story. great picture from staffordshire, quite a
lot of cloud. ties in with the weather front which is sinking south across the uk. it divides up our story in three parts. mike was in the sunshine at wimbledon, the cloud will push further south today and perhaps the odd shower at wimbledon later. behind the weather front, cooler weather for all areas as the front clear through to the south of the uk. sinking down into wales, midlands and east anglia into the afternoon. the sunshine behind it in scotland, sunshine to the south of it, but some rain for the midlands and east anglia for a time during the afternoon. never anything especially heavy. a slightly cooler day here, 23 today. lots of sunshine
to the south of the uk, top temperatures along the south coast, 25-26. a temperatures along the south coast, 25—26. a few showers across the midland, some sharp ones across east anglia. further north, high teens at best, sunshine widespread across england. sunny spells for northern ireland, the odd shower across the north—east of scotland. it is cooler because of the breeze. 13—15. tonight an overnight, some showery rain possible across southern england. and any fresher regime on sunday. sunday brings as dry weather and sunshine, a few showers lingering in the far south—east first thing. they move out of the way as the day goes on. the odd shower possible for scotland across the higher ground of northern
england. cool along the north sea coast. fresher further south as well. and the temperature is about average for the time of year. a settled day on monday with some sunshine, there is a chance we could see some showers becoming increasingly widespread across the uk through the middle part of the week. you many remember our recent "wake up to the menopause" week on breakfast, which did so much to raise awareness and encourage people to talk about the issue. well, maybe the education secretary, damian hinds was listening too — he's announced that the menopause will become part of the curriculum and will be taught in secondary schools in england from next year. during our campaign we spoke to the teenager anais gallagher and her mother, meg mathews, and they explained how it has affected their relationship.
you need to tell your children about it, because if you don't know about the menopause you mightjust think they are having a mental breakdown. but when i they are having a mental breakdown. but when i found they are having a mental breakdown. but when i found out they are having a mental breakdown. but when i found out it they are having a mental breakdown. but when i found out it was they are having a mental breakdown. but when i found out it was medical, i wasn't that concerned. you are very grown—up for your age, very mature, and we can talk about everything. so it was pretty easy for us. i know you are in your own head when you are going through the menopause and you can't really think about the big picture. but at the end of the day, however much you are stressed out and you think, for the... your number one job stressed out and you think, for the... your number onejob and priority is to be a mother. the... your number onejob and priority is to be a motherlj the... your number onejob and priority is to be a mother. i don't think any mother's do that because of this to get on with their life. but your head and everything is so difficult. but also, from my point of view, as a teenager, or a kid, just be understanding, don't take the situation too seriously, be light—hearted, help them to have
fun, just talk. it's really good advice! we can now speak to the menopause counsellor and campaigner diane danzebrink. 0ne so clear there is that it is not being spoken about. so many people got in touch with us to say, i didn't even realise these issues we re didn't even realise these issues were happening, i just didn't even realise these issues were happening, ijust thought my mum was going crazy, or she was having a really bad time with something else. and if it this is taught earlier, the myth is debunked. as your earlier guest said, it is ridiculous it has never been done before, isn't it? it is almost mad. why has it not been included before? at the moment in school you have that chat about puberty, about periods etc, but not what happens later on. and this is about making sure different generations of the family are understood. absolutely. if we understand more about it in our
teens, we are all going to grow up, and we? we've got mothers, grandmothers, aunts, guardians in our lives, old family friends. we are going to grow up, we go into the workplace, we go into relationships. whether it is a man or a woman, surely we need to understand it. in the same way that we have a general understanding of pregnancy, we need to have a general understanding of menopause, because understanding means that we will be more compassionate, more empathetic, and goodness knows we need more of that! this will be taught in secondary schools was that it will matter enormously that it is taught well, because i come from an era when sex education in schools was shockingly bad, and probably detrimental if anything to any progress. so it is important it is done well. how do we make sure the right people are saying the right things? it needs to be done while you are absolutely right. the announcement literally
was made on thursday. that is the win for the was made on thursday. that is the winforthe campaign, was made on thursday. that is the win for the campaign, essentially, that it win for the campaign, essentially, thatitis win for the campaign, essentially, that it is going to be taught. there is more work to do on it. we need to look at what the curriculum will look at what the curriculum will look like, what is included, who will teach it, how it is going to be taught. that is to be ironed out. please tell me it is for both sexes, for everyone. because i remember being separated from the boys in class when we were told about periods. the boys went fishing or something, ridiculous. absolutely. it has to be for boys and girls, because as we said, it is a societal thing, isn't it? menopause matters to everybody. what will be taught? how long does it take to put a curriculum together? we are talking about it being part of the rac curriculum. part of the relationships and sex education curriculum, we are talking about a
module, not a gcse! werejust talking about a module. what we really need to know is, what is it? when does it happen? what are the symptoms? what can you do about it? how does it affect people? how might it affect you? how can you support others in your life. that's really all we need to know. i could probably teach that in an hour. all we need to know. i could probably teach that in an hourlj know you've been campaigning for yea rs, know you've been campaigning for years, do you get a sense that has been a shift? getting on the curriculum is a tick box, that is done. bigger conversations, do you think it has improved?” done. bigger conversations, do you think it has improved? i think we are starting. this is a massive step forward. we have two other aims in the campaign, one is to have mandatory education for —— once we have achieved that, i'll come back and say, charlie, we have done it! work in progress. that's it from is this saturday on breakfast. we are back tomorrow from 6am.
