hearing. it is terrible, we have all loved. —— the crowd. experienced it, we have been in that the success of getting gold at commonwealth games and then space, i think my generation of hosting the world cup in liverpool playing wasn't as bad as previous must have helped grow fan base? generations and probably not as bad as what is happening at the moment. i think massively. since the gold that the commonwealth games, but it is insidious, i commend the eve ryo ne that the commonwealth games, everyone has been so interested. i think some people are recognising players, they're so professionalfor players now, it is crazy. the world getting on with it. but the players cup was massive and everyone got will vote with their feet and walk behind the sport, so it has snowballed from there and is getting bigger and bigger and people are off the pitch. this is beamed around starting to really enjoy it. from a the world, the premier league, and personal point of view, the fact you what are saying to launch something have been included in the squad under the new managerjess, how are bigger and bolder, is this the you feeling about that? i'm really message you want to sent out, the excited. i don‘t know what else to two guys, fred and rudiger, they're foreign nationals and that is what say but got —— super excited. to we're presenting to them and their families that they will come to train super hard and be able to go england and we will tolerate this. to these things is like, yeah, it‘s we need to show that we are better than that. when we see calls for an starting to pay off. it‘s good. inquiry, what can that achieve and
11:05 am
what can it do. it can't be people england play next month against those three other teams. thanks again. and charles leclerc has sitting around and you heard the confirmed that he will be staying with ferrari. government minister saying the the formula 1 star tweeted things we have heard before. we need that he had signed a deal to stay forfive more years. something big and bold. i remember leclerc won back—to—back races in belgium and italy and finished fourth in the overall driver standings, ahead of team—mate sebastian vettel. the macpherson inquiry 25—plus years ago after the murder of stephen lawrence and what happened then, that‘s all the sport for now. there was an inquiry into racism in i‘ll have more for there was an inquiry into racism in the police, but it was bigger than you in the next hour. that and it spoke about issues in the former labour leader, society and ushered a way into ed miliband, is to take part thinking and lifting the bonnet of what we do in society and i think in a review examining the party‘s heavy defeat in the for that reason it achieved a lot. general election. now we are at a similar stage. the activist group, labour together, is setting up a commission tasked with mapping out football is the national game. what a route back to power. is happening isn't just the review will be led by the former shadow football is the national game. what is happening isn'tjust happening in football, but it is happening in education secretary, lucy powell. as the decade draws to a close, society, but football is the statisticians have released a summary of the numbers that national game, can we use it as a illustrate how life has vehicle to have those conversations. changed over the 2010s. the world has moved on, social media the royal statistical society competition results showconcerns over deforestation, and closer
11:06 am
isa the world has moved on, social media is a massive part of the solution, to home, slow productivity growth but it is part of problem as well. in the uk. these are the conversations we need to have and we need to start at the highest level. we have a new the winning international government, can they be bold and do statistic was 8.4 million — that‘s the number of football that? . a response there from the pitches you could fit in the area lost to deforestation in the amazon pfa on what happened within during the past ten years. football. the british stat of the decade was 0.3%, five people have been the estimated average annual sentenced to death by a court increase in uk productivity since the financial crisis. in saudi arabia for the murder of government criticjamal khashoggi another noteable number — 27%. in istanbul last year. that‘s the percentage of young adults in the uk, aged 20 to sa, three more have been given jail sentences who are now estimated to live totalling 2a years. with their parents. the prosecutor said saoud al qahtani earlier i spoke to professor — an important aide jennifer rogers, vice president of crown prince mohammed bin salman for external affairs, — had been investigated but not charged and was released. the country faced international at the royal statistical society. condemnation for mr khashoggi's murder in the saudi embassy in turkey last year; saudi arabia i started by asking her blamed it on what they called what she thought about that amazon a ‘rogue operation‘. deforestation number. our middle east correspondent martin patience what struck us about this joins me from beirut. is the number is so huge. 8.4 million football pitches we have tell us more first of all about what lost due to deforestation. we felt this statistic was a really powerful visualisation has emerged from this judgment. of a really serious issue.
11:07 am
tell us more first of all about what has emerged from thisjudgment. what we have had is from the public the amazon rainforest is the lungs prosecutors in saudi arabia, 11 of the world and it takes carbon dioxide and air pollution out people were put on trial, five have of the atmosphere and we are been sentenced to death, three losing so much of it at such an alarming rate. others lengthy jail sentences been sentenced to death, three others lengthyjail sentences and how was the winning three released. importantly, what statistic chosen? the public prosecutor says is this we receive loads of nominations and we sat down as a judging panel was not a premeditated killing. and we try to think about the key issues facing the uk and the globe according to their investigations, over the last ten years. this interrogation team went to the we try to pick out statistics that capture that spirit and also consulate in turkey to interrogate jamal khashoggi. when they couldn‘t statistics that shocked. move him to another area, apparently for reasons that still are not the uk figure that you picked out was productivity, clear, apparently they decided to which might seem a bit dry to some. kill him. now, i think many will see it might seem a bit of a dull this as a whitewash of events, why statistic, but thejudging panel felt it was the most important uk for example did this team have the statistic over the last decade. tools to cut up the body and the productivity before the financial crisis was around 2% body of jamal khashoggi has never and the more productive we are, been recovered. one version of event the more prosperous we are. ps is this killing was ordered from if we can increase productivity, pay will increase and the government
11:08 am
the highest levels in saudi arabia will have more money to spend from mohammed bin salman, a top on public services such as the nhs. official was investigated, but the you were highlighting that to show there is a little bit of growth investigators let him off. saudi arabia from its point of view will but more needs to be done? wa nt to arabia from its point of view will want to draw a line under this murder, because it has been deeply we were highlighting this, more that it has pretty much halted, damaging to the saudi arabia‘s the growth has not been much over reputation around the world and it the last ten years and may be more needs to be done has been its worst diplomatic crisis to try and improve that. it is all about skills since the 2001 attacks in the united and training in part. states. yet, haven't its traditional allies, including the uk and the united states stood by the saudis, another interesting one we picked out, the idea that despite condemnation of what nearly a third of young happened here? i think there was a adults, who you define as aged 20 lot of criticism. i think it put to sa, are living at home with mum and dad. we felt this captured housing affordability america and the uk under the and it was one that shocked me. i am 3a and to think that over one spotlight. were they prepared to in four of young adults, support a man, a including my age category, spotlight. were they prepared to supporta man, a kingdom i still living at home spotlight. were they prepared to support a man, a kingdom where there is terrible human rights abuses? and ——are still at home with mum and dad. thatis is terrible human rights abuses? and we have heard this boomerang
11:09 am
that is according to human rights generation being coined where young individuals are going to university organisations. we also, according to or college and then they move reports it was the cia‘s own conclusion that the order must have to their parents‘ because housing rents are too high. been, the order of mohammed bin or they cannot afford a deposit. salman, he at the very least must have known that this operation has been going ahead. but you‘re right in pointing out weapons sales from the uk and saudi arabia have women hold 36.6% continued, because saudi arabia of places on boards. continues to prosecute the war in it has gone up over the last decade. yemen. so i think it has been very we had a lot of nominations that showed work still needed to be done, difficult for relations between the like the gender pay gap. two countries, but from saudi there are very few women holding arabia‘s point of view, what it will be strongly saying to its allies is, executive board positions. look, we have carried out an investigation, people have been prosecuted, now is the time to move in the last decade, gender on. how significant is this key aid and equality has been a hugely of the crown prince was not found debated topic and this showed culpable and what is the position progress had been done. we cannot change this overnight, but hopefully we are going 110w culpable and what is the position now of mohammed bin salman in in the right direction relation to this whole affair?|j and on the right trajectory. only a minority of people with a learning disability are able to find a job — mean, relation to this whole affair?” mean, his aides, you know... the
11:10 am
but often itjust takes a bit whole process hasn‘t been... of support and understanding from terribly transparent. the fact that an employer to make things possible. dougal shaw has been down on the farm in leeds, the announcement‘s just come out to meet one young man, today, i don‘t think anything was who has found his dream job, mucking out the animals? expecting it was going to come mucking out the pigs. it‘s a task today. i think mohammed bin salman, mitch does twice a day on the farm where he works in leeds in the north of england. he isa for some, it might seem unglamorous today. i think mohammed bin salman, he is a very charismatic young work, but it‘s everything leader, he is something who actually he ever wanted. yeah, it‘s a dream job, basically. means the world to me. has widespread support within the kingdom, because he, he has crushed it means i can do a job i truly enjoy. mitch is 21. dissent, but what he is also doing he has autism and learning disabilities. is opening up the kingdom. for he loves to learn and be productive, example, tourists are being called to go to saudi arabia. we have seen itjust takes him longer than most to absorb and process information. p0p to go to saudi arabia. we have seen pop concerts, boxing matches have for five years, taken place in the last few weeks, he desperately struggled to find a job, but most employers simply women are allowed to drive. so it wouldn‘t give him a chance. he was even turned down is, ithink for voluntary work. women are allowed to drive. so it is, i think he is... he cracks down some people just won‘t hire people on dissent, but he also has a with disabilities for some reason, which is a shame considering we‘re liberalising effect on the kingdom and there are two sides so this in the 21st century. story. from his point of view, he in fact, only around 1 in 20 adults with learning will be emphasising what he is doing disabilities find employment.
11:11 am
for the younger population, what he is doing for women and he will want but often people like mitch just need a little help to put what is a deeply damaging to get started. ajob coach helped him episode behind him. thank you. i secure this role. know this story is just breaking it was all about making sure 110w. know this story is just breaking now. thank you for your analysis. that he, in his mind, got into the routine of knowing what to do and how to do it. the other key for mitch was having a sympathetic employer who realized the potential benefits someone like him could bring. when it's wet, it's cold, it's muddy, you're tired and you're not feeling well, it's not the nicest job in the world. not many people stick to it. the former love island presenter has so he's got real dedication. he's fantastic. been charged following a fight with her boyfriend. she has stood down he even visits the animals on his days off. from the series of love island in i have always loved animals, south africa. since i was a kid. it doesn‘t really matter what disability you have. as long as you‘re a hard worker, and a decent person, you should have a job, no matter what. a woman has died after a bus crashed remember harry billinge? in wales. seven other people were he‘s the d—day veteran who inspired us all after raising tens injured in the accident. a

11:16 am
companies should be on guard that in china there is the possibility of now on bbc news, lucy hedges rounds forced labour. it is not to say that up some of the travel show‘s best adventures from the year. the majority of the supply chain in china, or that workers are engaged in forced labour. but there is that risk. so companies need to take that seriously. can you give us an idea of percentage of goods that we all buy made in china that might have this risk attached? i don't think i hello and welcome to this, have the exact numbers at hand, but the last travel show of 2019, imean have the exact numbers at hand, but so what better time to take a look i mean china‘s obviously you know, it‘s been known as the factory of back on the past year the world, where so much of word‘s on the programme? here‘s a taste of what‘s coming up. products are made and the vast it‘s incredible. majority is not made under conditions of forced labour. there oh, my days! can be other labour rights problems, that companies need to be on guard that was completely insane. against, in the last year there have been over a hundred labour leaders who have been detained for trying to let‘s kick off with a trip that mike

11:19 am
charities will want to know the and the hidden secrets beneath this bark will be ours! outcome, as we will. yes! the knowledge will be ours! earlier on, anthony showed me some of those secrets this tree had already revealed. and so, wow! these are the rings here? the headlines on bbc news... five people are sentenced to death in saudi arabia for the murder yeah, each one of those an annual ring, one year‘s worth of the journalist jamal khashoggi of growth you can see here. calls for a government inquiry into racism in football, so it only grows a couple after a premier league match of millimetres each year? is stopped for the first time yeah, and sometimes less than a millimetre a year, because of allegations depending on how the conditions are. of abuse from the stands. as australia‘s bushfire crisis continues — we are back hundreds the country‘s prime minister defends the coal industry and defies calls of years right now? for new carbon targets. yeah. once we polish this up and sand it in sport, the new everton manager, and get a better view of the rings, you know, carlo ancelotti, has held his first this is — there could be 100, news conference. he said it will 200, 300, 400, 500, 600, ta ke news conference. he said it will take time to turn the club‘s 700 maybe years here. fortu nes take time to turn the club‘s fortunes around but he had a clear wow. focus. england netball has announced so this section up here hasn‘t seen sunlight for 600, 700 years. yeah. it‘s an amazing archive. record sales for an international tournament, after a successful home all right, so i have one end world cup when england won bronze. of the tape measure. we are doing the circumference measurement. yep, yep. and charles leclerc said he will be
11:20 am
staying with ferrari. he has signed a deal to stay for five more years. so wrap it all the way around that underneath this tubing. i‘m back with more after half past. so we are at 7.81; metres circumference. that‘s a big tree! it is a big tree. to the top! australia‘s prime minister, scott morrison, has again this redwood stands defended the coal industry, despite conceding yesterday that climate change has helped fuel at over 70 metres tall. the country‘s bushfires. he said there was no need climbing redwoods is forbidden to impose new carbon targets. in most places, but in this reserve, meanwhile, the leader of new south wales says we have special permission — ‘catastrophic‘ fire conditions have almost completely destroyed and what a privilege it is! the community of a small town that‘s home to around four—hundred 0k. people. a0 metres. balmoral, south west of sydney, has been engulfed by flames, as emergency crews struggle to contain the situation. i cannot believe how from there shaimaa khalil reports: incredible it is up here. it‘s incredible up here. from there shaimaa khalil reports. it feels like a deserted war zone, but this is the aftermath of the catastrophic bushfires that as we inched upwards, i am faced with more scorched bark. have ravaged new south wales. anthony told me that wildfires and in the village of balmoral, are another threat that these trees are increasingly facing the devastation is everywhere. in the modern world. russell scholes has been a volunteer firefighter for six years. bird‘s nest. he was out with his team trying
11:21 am
