tv   Newswatch  BBC News  October 19, 2019 3:45am-4:00am BST

3:45 am that remains to be seen how well that works. well, regular newswatch viewers will have known that was coming, and that such noises oft annoy many members of the audience. and it was no exception here, with mike burgess reacting like this... the distractions aren'tjust verbal, of course, but visual, too. the holder of this "leave, then negotiate" placard managed to get in shot several times as a bbc camera pursued interviewees down the street. and while that perhaps was unavoidable, some argue
3:46 am
that the frequent appearances of a placard waver from the other side of the argument are encouraged by those live broadcasts from college green. here's the activist in question, steve bray, doing the dance of the camera shot behind huw edwards and laura kuenssberg a couple weeks ago. and borisjohnson still says he wants to have a general election, but at this moment, the opposition parties aren't going to back that. and when it comes to the big quagmire they're all in politically — how we sort out the brexit mess — well, it doesn't necessarily change that much immediately either. laura, we'll talk a little bit more about that later on but thanks very much for that. laura kuenssberg there, our political editor, with more analysis a little later. julian punch emailed us after watching that. and chris bolton also wondered...
3:47 am
we asked bbc news for a response to this complaint, and they told us... on thursday, the action was very much not in westminster but in brussels. huw edwards was dispatched to the belgian capital to present the news at six and news at ten, and that gave rise to another objection we've heard several times before on this programme — voiced here in a telephone
3:48 am
message from carol kumner. why is it necessary to have them in brussels? with all these video things, they can talk to the people in europe via a link. you've got the lovely katya adler, who's your european correspondent. it's just not necessary to have the london people go over there, wasting money when the bbc‘s constantly saying it can't afford this, it can't do that. well, we also asked bbc news for an explanation for this practice of sending london people over there. they told us...
3:49 am
and if we've been down that road before, what about the thorny issue of what our prime minister should be called on air? a couple of weeks ago, we mentioned mrjohnson being referred to as boris on the news at six — and your thoughts about that. here's europe reporter gavin lee speaking on the news channel on thursday afternoon. the music yesterday from the likes of steve baker and the other. brexiteers from the european research group suggested that they had faith in boris. there will be no caveat today. there will be no sense of, we give a thumbs up but you have to get a deal, boris, in westminster on super saturday. he will be asking for the eu to categorically say that there should not be an extension that they will give. so if boris asks for it, they will say no. other eu leaders will be thinking, hang on, it's not about boris, it's about the entire parliament. maybe we just have to deal with that. that repeated use of boris produced this response from sonia reed. and that was echoed by this telephone caller.
3:50 am
i'm ringing to complain about, yet again, we had the use of the word boris, and frequently we hear nigel. why do we not hear the names farage and johnson when we always hear corbyn? if you have any decent attempt at neutrality, surely they should be addressed in the same manner. do let us know your thoughts on all those points, or on any aspect of bbc news. details of how to contact us at the end of the programme. now, the brexit deal wasn't the only story covered on bbc news this week, though it might have seemed like it at times. there was also coverage of the visit by the duke and duchess of cambridge to pakistan,
3:51 am
including a report from secunder kermani on tuesday's news at six. this tour has an added emotional significance for prince william, as he traces some of his late mother's footsteps. many here remember her fondly. there's been praise for the duchess of cambridge‘s outfits. some have been comparing her look to that of princess diana, who made three visits here during the 1990s. having watched that, a twitter user called sam posted this. and sarah parker added...

monday night's football match in bulgaria saw england players subjected to racist abuse, and that story was leading the bbc one news bulletins 2a hours later. tonight at ten, bulgaria's football boss resigns and the country faces disciplinary action after racism blights their match against england last night... janet munro contacted us after watching that to say... and later in the week, june davis made a different point. finally, on sunday night,

quentin sommerville reported on three children the bbc had found in a camp in syria who are believed to be from london, and whose parents had been killed in fighting afterjoining the islamic state group. his powerful report had a big impact on those watching. as turkish forces advanced on the camp, security was breached today and hundreds escaped. british women and children may be among them. the whereabouts of amira, heba and hamza — and the 21 other orphans — is unknown. syria was never a safe place to take detainees, especially children. now, they may be lost forever. and somewhere in london, there's a grandmother waiting, not knowing if they're alive or dead. the following day, quentin sommerville reported that the three siblings he'd featured in that report had been rescued and were with the save the children charity, prompting

weather story was typhoon hagibis. in fact, we were watching this powerful typhoon barrelling its way towards the shores of japan. weather warnings were enforced, several of the rugby world cup matches were cancelled, including the england—france match. i'm pleased to say fast forward seven days and yes we have some shower cloud across japan but the weather story looks much better for the quarterfinals. in fact, it should be relatively dry, bright and warm, with temperatures into the mid—20s for the england—australia match. i wish i could say the same, however, for the uk on saturday. it does look as though we're going to have plenty of showers, some of them heavy with the odd rumble of thunder. but there is an improvement for the second half of the weekend. we are still under this influence of low pressure with this weather front enhancing the rain fall across eastern scotland. we'll also see plenty of showers out of the west as well. some of these showers will push further inland as we go through the day, perhaps not as many as we have seen across england and,
3:56 am
the rain fairly persistent through eastern scotland, drifting down towards the scottish borders as we go through the day and then a northerly breeze kicking in behind. so top temperatures on saturday of 10—15 degrees. but as we go to the overnight period, the showers will start to fade away and the northerly wind will start to kick a little bit further south. that is going to allow temperatures to fall away. low single figures in a few spots, a chillier start to sunday morning but a quieter start to sunday morning. that i'm sure will come as welcome news. in fact, the second half of the weekend looks drier and there will be fewer showers around as well. a better day for getting out and about. so we start off on a chilly note. that northerly wind would be a future, albeit light, a few showers along the east coast a little more cloud here, damp and drizzly in places. further south and west we will see a little more sunshine and after that chilly start temperatures will recover 9—11; degrees, the high. again, we could have an issue
3:57 am
with some fog and frost through the night, but the story into the early half of the week is high pressure building from the west. there is this weather front that could just be a little bit of a fly in the ointment for the extreme south—east, maybe some rain close to the kent coast. but generally across the uk on monday, that quieter theme of weather is set to build. there will be light winds, there would be a little bit of fairweather cloud and it will feeljust a little bit cooler. but with the sunshine compensating, hopefully a better feel. 9—11; celsius. take care.

this is bbc news: welcome if you're watching here in the uk, on pbs in america or around the globe. i'm james reynolds. our top stories: turmoil in barcelona: police fire rubber bullets and use tear gas at protesters angry at the jailing of catalan separatist leaders. what's clear is that they are becoming worse and worse. more violent, more protesters on the streets and more response from the police as well, who tonight have used tear gas for the first time and rubber bullets as they are trying to protect the national police headquarters which are just down here. super saturday in the british parliament — just hours before mps decide whether or not to back borisjohnson‘s brexit deal. what matters is mps coming together, across the house tomorrow,
