it is deeply unpleasant. i can't understand sometimes my colleagues are saying, they can't understand lyna khoudri stars as nedjma me. i have been watching my who is known as papicha. she's a lively, modern student colleagues and they subconsciously who dreams of becoming are fiddling with these facemasks all the time because they are a fashion designer. uncomfortable, especially in the seats. that means that there may be a downside to wearing these facemasks because although they cut thanks to a well practised system of subterfuge, down the droplet spread, that is how she and her friends regularly dodge curfew and go out clubbing — dancing as if they don't we down the droplet spread, that is how we think they may want to stop the have a care in the world. the film's infectious spread of infection a bit, when you youthful energy and musical rhythms recall films like celine sciamma's girlhood, but as mounia meddour‘s film reminds start touching them and adjusting them, you can be putting infection us, jihadist danger is always around the corner. back onto them or putting the islamic extremist posters on campus tell women into cover up from head infection on to your hands. you need to weigh these things out. when children are at school, it could be to toe or they will be "ta ken care of". sudden devastating hit scenes have the power a big distraction, especially of a classic mafia movie. initially for smaller kids. we will it's an important film that has plenty to say about gender, power, need to prepare to handle that. how trauma and resilience. lyna khoudri is a true star. does it work off with the we will next see her in wes anderson's film trade—offs, so closing pubs for example to allow schools to open.

the french dispatch. does that have a meaningful impact? if you take a step back and think of it in terms of how viruses spread and how they go from one person to papicha is on digital and in some cinemas now. burnt in subs. the next, this is all about chains of transmission. the more contact there is between people the more opportunities there are four things to spread. you are maximising the numberof to spread. you are maximising the a different perspective on extremism number of pathways, increasing the comes from young ahmed, the story of a teenager who plots number of pathways, increasing the numberof number of pathways, increasing the number of conduits through which chains of transmission can flow. if you minimise those conduits or to assassinate his schoolteacher. reduce them wherever possible, he reduced the chance of transmission. that is where these trade—offs come this is directed byjean—pierre and luc dardenne, the belgian brothers whose realist dramas in. if we think about the whole of are beloved by the cannes film festival, where they won for best director last year. society as a burden of disease, then we are society as a burden of disease, then we are willing to tolerate a certain burden of disease as long as we can keep it monitored, keep it under control up to a point. therefore, we can adjust the formula so we can played by gifted young actor idir ben addi — have that amount of disease we are

issues for britain or france, like we don‘t have to quarantine when we the pandemic, like rising new cases get back, but yeah, it is slightly worrying. we are right here for of coronavirus in france and of another two weeks, so if france were to be added to the quarantined list course the economy in a very bad we to be added to the quarantined list we will look to go back slightly earlier on the basis of the kids having to go back to school about state. also, you know, britain is a sort of thing, so yes, it would big and great country and you can affect us, that the holiday. we come deal with a few hundred migrants here every year on holiday and apart every day. probably, because it is from people wearing face mask and it seasonal, we know because of the being slightly quieter we haven't really noticed again to much different from other dears, to be pandemic or other roads were honest. we are not worried. we are of the view that if it is added to migrants wishing and actually so desperate to go to britain that they the quarantine lest we would support risk their lives to get here, have the quarantine lest we would support the government and followed the advice as appropriate. would it affect you if you have to be been closed, so that is why, and quarantined for two weeks when he also because of the fair weather, thatis also because of the fair weather, that is why they are trying. through went back to tdk. not particularly. we both work from home full—time at the english channel. so priti patel the moment. the only thing is i a few weeks ago met with her french think you are not allowed to walk dogs, so we will have to sort that out! i don't think particularly. we counterpart, and they set up a would be very careful and make sure group, but of course they need we would be very careful and make sure we stuck to the rules. france still

has a much lower rate of infection probably more means and more men because when they met, they agreed 400,000 residents and deadspin and it was added to the british on 12 offices, french, and six quarantine list, but norway has already analysed it is quarantining business from french. meanwhile, british. those are limited to what there is not much more you can do the guards can do, because when they rather than bide your time here and apprehend those migrants on dinghies wait for news, and i can think of worse places to do that. in the french waters, a lot of them fretted to go into the water. the we‘re joined now by the travel consultant paul charles and the sun‘s travel editor, laws are fretted to go into the water. the laws a re pretty fretted to go into the water. the laws are pretty clear. you are not lisa minot. supposed to push people in the water they have both recently got back when they are in difficulty. you are to rescue them or take them back to from holidays in france. france. that is what they tried to do with limited means. more people, very warm welcome. paul, a lot of people who are currently in france you simply rescue them and processed or going to france for their them. see if they are eligible for holidays will be keenly watching and political asylum. politicians here be very interested to know what is going to happen. can you give us are saying that france needs to do sense of what it was like, your more, and one of ourfront pages journey there and back, and how people are treating social here says a paper saying france distancing over there? most people

asking for £13 million more. should are wearing face masks in france, certainly die near marseille were i they be doing more? well, they are was. most of the shop she went into properly doing as much as they can people were wearing them. there is with the amount of men they have, almost a relaxed attitude to coronavirus when the temperature is and, again, it is the peak of the 35 degrees and people want to be out enjoying their holidays. that is season. that is the agreement, what france seem to have suffered perhaps we should add the agreement from. in terms of the journey, obviously wearing a mask on the and the british border perhaps should be in the britain and not in flight obviously wearing a mask on the flight was relatively easy, but there seems to be an inconsistency the north of france. that is a fair at airports, both in the uk and in question. otherwise perhaps we the south of france. when you are should put more men on both sides during the summer, because at some returning sometimes your temperature check happens, sometimes it doesn‘t. point it will abate. there is also the passenger locator for many come back to the uk is something that the another way of looking at it. perhaps britain should be proud that government or officials the ground on checking. they ask you to fill it people are ready to dive to get to in online but they are not checking the land of hope and freedom and it is still how some people die. that you have done that when you go back to the airport. there are a lot of inconsistencies and that is not britain is a big country can very helping this process. case numbers well deal with a few hundred migrants, afew are rising in france, the french
6:36 am
well deal with a few hundred migrants, a few every day or every government saying it is at a week. thank you very much for joining us on breakfast this morning. we will of course be worrying level now. it could be that getting a uk perspective as well in in the next few days people coming the programme. back from france will have to thank you forjoining us this sunday isolate. that very much could happen. what we need is for the morning. holly is here with the sport. a surprise come back! government to give people notice, so unlike the four hour notice that what is it about this england side? people had about spanish quarantine they do this every single time it rules are changing, at least we had feels like. they are at their best a good two days with the latest ones when the odds are stacked against and people are going to need that them, i suppose. because there are people who cannot afford to quarantine when they and in the first test against pakistan at old trafford return. they cannot work from home. yesterday, it was no different. it seemed like pakistan as long as people have noticed and they know what is going to happen, i had it all wrapped up. then england won it back, think we have to approach this in then they lost it again, and eventually they won it the right way, that would be the way thanks in large part to a sensational partnership to do it, i would say. between jos buttler and chris woa kes. adam wild was following the action. that would help people but it could mean people rushing back from when test cricketers is absorbing, you can hardly wait to get started. holiday to avoid quarantine and bring the virus with them and defeat england was my first task was to the purpose of the policy. yes, to a

7:05 am
matt, borisjohnson, raising money forjust a drop, doing like all leaders across the uk, having to weigh up some difficult decisions here. great work in 30 countries, i think things from before the introducing simple technologies summer playing on the government's filtering water and improving access to water which is almost a given. i mines, the land to get all children swa m to water which is almost a given. i back into the classroom before the swam in over 43 miles of it here holidays didn't work out, but boris which is not the case around the johnson clear that in september world. iam hoping which is not the case around the world. i am hoping to raise more things will be different. he writes money. thank you. george, super swim that social justice demands things will be different. he writes that socialjustice demands the children go back to schools, not across the lake district. that is it least is it the most vulnerable who he says fears could drop out of from us. you will be back tomorrow. education never to return if back tomorrow with louise from six classrooms don't open. the school ministered did say during the week iron. have a good day and a tropical night. goodbye. —— from six. in the event of local flareups it wouldn't be for central government to decree what schools or businesses should open all stay closed. that would be for local public health officials. but borisjohnson making it very clear he sees this as a priority for schools and that carries political weight. some labour voices say the test and trade system needs to significantly improve if we are to have two close pubs to keep the schools open, but
7:06 am
borisjohnson has again this morning being talking up that system and he says it is absolutely important for the country's future that schools reopen. thank you very much. we'll get more reaction to this news from the children's commissioner for england, anne longfield, in just over an hour. the home office has formally requested the royal navy's help to deal with migrants attempting to cross the english channel from france. a total of 151 people reached the uk via small boats yesterday following record numbers earlier in the week. our reporter simonjones is in dover for us this morning. simon, what could the royal navy do that the border force can't? a lot of discussion this morning about what the royal navy might be able to do if they are called in to this is bbc news with the latest headlines for viewers in the uk help, and it is not straightforward. and around the world. this is bbc news with the latest headlines for viewers in the uk not at all. those details are currently being thrashed out. and around the world. tear gas is fired at protesters in beirut during mass demonstrations yesterday we had 15 boats managing after last week‘s catastophic to reach the uk, more than 500 explosion in the city.
7:07 am
people have made thejourney to reach the uk, more than 500 people have made the journey over the past three days alone. in the past hour we have seen some border force fa ns past hour we have seen some border force fans turn up at the port behind me, suggesting they are expecting more to arrive today. the home secretary has created a new role, called the channel threat co—ordinator. she has appointed a man called dan omani, a former marine who served in iraq and kosovo, and his goal is to try and make the route unviable. he may not have the support of the military with the idea of calling the royal navy in stop as you suggest, what it will do is not entirely clear because there have been some suggestion that the navy could try to turn boats back at sea. that could potentially be dangerous because often these boats are overloaded, they are not always seaworthy, and it lady wanted to go into french waters they would need the permission of the french authorities to do that. so lots of questions and it may well be the reality is what the border force needs a boost in numbers provided by
7:08 am
the navy. simon, thank you very much indeed for now. we will speak to the local mp for dover in a few minutes. world leaders will take part in talks today arranged by the french president emmanuel macron to raise aid for beirut after the massive explosion, which devastated the lebanese capital on tuesday. these are live photos, live pictures this morning from beirut. you can see the huge grain silo, the remains of their in the background on the left. it looks like some sort of ancient monument now, doesn't it? it has pretty much been ripped apart by the blast. it follows protests in the city which saw thousands of people expressing their anger at the country's leaders. some of them stormed government buildings and clashed with riot police. our middle east correspondent quentin sommerville sent this report. shouting lebanon's rage against its elite is erupting anew. a city in the aftermath of an explosion is filled with tear gas and anger.
7:09 am
the protests have barely started and, already, there's tear gas coming in here from all sides. the protesters are falling back at the moment, but they keep continuing to push forward. "we are rebels, free men," said this man. "they fired directly at us." and a city still reeling from the shock of the blast was met with violent force. they came to condemn the government they blame for the destruction of their city and their lives. and this is the fate lebanon's politicians deserve, they said. can you tell me in english what's written? they'd started with a rollcall of the dead. among the names — 43 syrians, and the wife of the dutch ambassador to lebanon. they carried aloft the pictures of those killed. we're fed up — we're fed up. this is our country —
7:10 am
this is our country. we want to defend our country. our president is useless. our prime minister is useless. everyone in this government is useless. they killed us. we have literally reached rock bottom. i don't want to talk about it because i'm going to cry. these were not just hardcore protesters. lebanese of all walks of life joined the demo too. among them, this woman. earlier, with her husband, george, she showed us their destroyed apartment. their business was in the port too. everyone is similar for where we are today. for losing our money, for losing ourjobs, for losing our businesses, for losing our homes, for losing our loved ones, ourfriends, everything. they are all to be blamed, they are all to be hanged. in the morning at the port, prime minister hassan diab acknowledged the anger, but took little responsibility. absolutely, they have the right to be angry and furious, notjust because of this.
7:11 am
this is absolutely diabolical, what happened. but, however, they were also furious even before that for three decades of unbelievable corruption. the violence reached a crescendo, and then...it was over. the police and army regained control. this is a country ruled by force and backroom deals. they have been calling for revolution here for almost a year. but lebanon's elite has staying power. the force of the disaster, which engulfed this city, may not be enough to bring change here. quentin sommerville, bbc news, beirut. the number of companies planning mass redundancies injune was five times higher than during the same period last year according to figures obtained by the bbc under a freedom of information request. airbus, royal mail and hsbc were among nearly 1,800 firms which announced job cuts injune.
7:12 am
that compares with 345 businesses shedding jobs a year earlier. the figures were collected in response toa figures were collected in response to a freedom of information request. a state of emergency has been declared in mauritius after a stranded japanese tanker began leaking tons of oil into the indian ocean close to a coral reef. greenpeace has warned that thousands of animal species are at risk with dire consequences for the island nations economy, food security and health. france is sending a military plane and experts to the scene. coastguards and the emergency services are braced for another busy day on our beaches, particularly those in southern and eastern parts of england, where temperatures are expected to reach more than 30 degrees celsius. several beaches were given a red alert on saturday because of the high number of visitors, which would make social distancing difficult. the coastlines of cornwall and kent, which we can see here, were among those which saw large crowds.
7:13 am
let's return to an issue we've been covering on breakfast for several days now — the growing number of people attempting to enter the uk illegally by crossing the channel. in the last three days alone, more than 500 migrants have made the dangerous voyage, most of them on overloaded dinghies headed for dover, where natalie elphicke is the mp. we can speak to her now. thank you forjoining us. can we start with these reports this morning that the royal navy have been asked now to intervene and have a strategy to try to sort the situation out? what do you think they can do? i think all options need to be on the table now. the small boat crossings are at a record. it is a small boat crossing crisis. so we do need to look at all options. in relation to the navy, what we have seen with border force
7:14 am
at the moment is they pick up the boats and they bring them into britain. if the navy or indeed the border force are to be really effective in shutting down the small boats trafficking routes, then they need to make sure the boats are returned to france, and we need french agreement to make sure that this happens. so this is the so—called pushback policy where the royal navy would potentially push back those migrant boats towards france. but the suggestion is that thatis, france. but the suggestion is that that is, number one, very dangerous, and numbertwo, that is, number one, very dangerous, and number two, potentially illegal under international law. these are incredibly dangerous crossings, and life has already been lost on those small boats routes. it is absolutely critical that for the safety of the migrants in northern france, that we bring an end to this dangerous trafficking route. and for me, that has three parts. the first is that france needs to stop these boats
7:15 am
leading the french shores in the first place. the second is that wherever the boats are picked up in the channel, they need to be returned back to france. and the third is if people do make travel through this illegal route, they need to be returned safely and promptly. it is the busiest shipping lane in the world, and as you say, it is incredibly dangerous. we have seen incidents already. but doesn't it make and only more dangerous is the royal navy is getting involved, pushing boats back? some of these boats are overloaded, they have small children on board. we could be looking at disastrous situations. the ceo this is an incredibly dangerous journey and we've seen loss of life and that's why it's unacceptable loss of life and that's why it's u na cce pta ble to allow loss of life and that's why it's unacceptable to allow a situation to continue and where people are already saved on french resorts. france has advanced a salomon benefit system, it should be taking
7:16 am
responsibility for people on the french assures and that's what we need to see. people not making this dangerous journey — first place. there is a suggestion that kind of pushback policy would be unacceptable. that it might be illegal for us to unacceptable. that it might be illegalfor us to do unacceptable. that it might be illegal for us to do that. it's essential the french and british work together to solve this. making sure that boats can be intercepted and returned, wherever they are in the english channel is absolutely vital to bring an end. because it's only in that way that the no—no can succeed into breaking into britain through this way and migrants and traffickers alike. trying to make these dangerous journeys and will bring an end to this situation. we been talking about an end to this situation for years and it seems to
7:17 am
be getting more and more serious. suggestions on some of the papers that the french are going to be asking for millions of pounds more from the uk towards this contribution to try to come up with a solution. is that the solution? should we be paying more to france? it's a french issue as much as a traditional one. and it's in the interests of france to put a stop to this. and to make sure they don't have a calais migrant magnet. we have a calais migrant magnet. we have been paying tens of millions of pounds to the french and they have treaty blood patients to us. it's critical they stop those boats and they tackle the organised crime behind these crossings and we bring an end to this particular route. it isa an end to this particular route. it is a fairly new route. only four yea rs is a fairly new route. only four years ago when there was a trickle
7:18 am
of votes coming in and what we've seen is organised crime move wholesale into the small boats crossing and we need to tackle those gangs as a criminal activity. you say we're paying tens of millions already but if we are asked and have to pay more, is it a price worth paying the uk? should we be contributing more? we are contributing more? we are contributing to this joint effort. it is absolutely essential we bring it to an end and we do need france to stop those boats leaving their shores. we need them to tackle the criminal gangs and we need to agree with them that they can be brought back to france with an agreement and that way we will bring an end to this small boats crossing issue because migrants and traffickers know they can't get into bit in this
7:19 am
way. what you said a minute ago how this is as much a french is a british problem but we heard from a french journalist saying as far as many french people are concerned, it's not a french problem. these migrants want to go to britain, is up migrants want to go to britain, is up to us to deal with it. you can kind of understand that mindset, can't you ? kind of understand that mindset, can't you? in calais, it has become just a real mess and the people of calais are very angry about the situation that they have in their area. we have seen time and again that when a situation is allowed to build—up in france, it's the people of northern france who absolutely bear the brunt of that. it is as much a french issue as it is a british one. it's in the interests of france to bring an end to the small boats crossing. if this policy of pushing back continues, you are
7:20 am
asking them to deal with the continuation of it, to make it worse for them. what is entered for france to do that? people have reached northern france have travelled through many countries before they get to france. they have travelled through many other safe countries and it's absolutely vital that people who need help get that help is close to that area is possible and that is why britain invests and supports as one of the global leaders in humanitarian support, by providing safe areas for people in need. this not is about humanitarian effort, this is about people who are engaged with people who are in a legal battle, people trafficking in that trafficking route takes people to many safe countries and it's essential that we bring this organised crime to an end. thank you for joining
7:21 am
organised crime to an end. thank you forjoining us this morning, we will see how things develop. here's stav with a look at this morning's weather. it's going to be extremely hot the next couple of days. yesterday, and thatis next couple of days. yesterday, and that is the high across the afternoon. we start this morning with rather grey weather across parts of wales, the midlands, northern and eastern england. graham and murky in buckinghamshire. this cloud will melt away and burned back towards the coast. it may stay a bit grey and misty across the north sea coast which will be quite strong
7:22 am
across the country but more noticeable across the north sea coast. 18— 20 degrees. inland, very warm the low 20s celsius. as we head on into sunday night, and into the first thing tomorrow morning, very dry and warm and muggy and there will be a threat of one or two showers and thunderstorms developing. temperatures will fall, fresher further north. developing. temperatures will fall, fresherfurther north. next developing. temperatures will fall, fresher further north. next week, we hold onto the warm and humid and thundery air mass and see an increasing chance of thunderstorms breaking up anywhere from monday onwards. we will see miss denmark, low cloud through the morning. good sunny spells developing. the threat of most of the showers and thunderstorms across western parts of england, northern ireland through monday afternoon. southern scotland,
7:23 am
northern ireland, temperatures around the mid 30s celsius. the reason why we start to see more under storms is this slow moving up edging up towards the uk, destabilising the atmosphere. we will likely see it breaking our day on day. difficult to know where it will be. perhaps a few developing into the midlands and southeast later in the day and again, very warm and humid, 34 degrees, and higher still further north. that theme continues through the week. things start a bit more settled and cooler and fresher. back to beirut now, and after the shock and grief of tuesday's huge explosion comes the searing anger of the lebanese people towards the authorities who they blame for mismanaging the country for so long. thousands took to the streets yesterday where they met fierce resistance from riot police.
7:24 am
some stormed government buildings. our middle east correspondent tom bateman is there. tom, are we likely to see more protests today? can you bring us up—to—date, are we likely to see more protest today? we we re likely to see more protest today? we were talking this time yesterday about the sense of rage of the people of beirut against their authorities, demanding answers over the explosion. the causes of it, why that explosive material was allowed to be stored and last night it reached the streets of beirut in a visible way. this is the focal point of anti—government demonstrations. thousands of people. we arrived about four o'clock yesterday and as
7:25 am
we arrived, there were huge groups surging here. this leads toward the lebanese parliament. immediately those protesters were being met with tear gas and rubber bullets, and you can see this burned—out truck you still smouldering in places. i think the authorities have tried to block the authorities have tried to block the route and it was simply torched. you really got a sense of the anger on top of the unprecedented destruction the city has seen and just have a look at that building there, that is a major newspaper in lebanon. some recovery work, it looks like it's been going on and it gives you a sense of the way this city is trying to do whatever it can to reconstruct, it will take months and months and they don't have the resources . and months and they don't have the resources. from the people you've been speaking to, what they you,
7:26 am
what are the demonstrators want? they were charging as we arrived. as we heard in quentin's piece, in the centre of the square saying, resign or be hanged. they want the entire political elite gone, and those protests began late last year amid the deeper economic crisis. this has exacerbated things and there is a sense also of incompetence about the way the disaster itself has been handled, the aftermath and in some ways the recovery attempts as well. they are calling for the entire political elite to be gone. we had the prime minister yesterday saying there would be early elections. i don't think that will be enough. there are more calls for protests today. tom, what response are elsewhere in the world. will there bea elsewhere in the world. will there be a co—ordinated effort to try to
7:27 am
help? we see rescue workers coming and day after day and there will be and day after day and there will be a big international aid conference, it's all been done on line. we will see a significant number of contributions being made, donald trump said he will dial into that and uk officials will as well but the key point is about the way it is sent. don't give the money to our government. because of corruption. they simply don't trust that. they will try to find ways to direct money to people themselves and to charities on the ground. let's return to our top story now, and the prime minister's pledge to prioritise keeping schools open in future local lockdowns, even if that means closing pubs and restaurants to curb the spread of covid—19. borisjohnson says children will be back in the classroom in september
7:28 am
and that social distancing measures will keep them safe. we can get a medical view from one of our bbc breakfast gps. doctor zoe norris is in east yorkshire. we can get medical view now. thanks for joining we can get medical view now. thanks forjoining us. good to see you. you've got school—aged children? as pa rents, you've got school—aged children? as parents, we are looking at this and wondering what the knock—on effect are. borisjohnson saying his confident schools will be able to reopen with the measures in place. is that how you see it as a dock?” think it's really challenging. my children are eight and ten so their understanding is relatively good but the eight—year—old is going to struggle to follow any particular social distancing or distance from
7:29 am
herfriends. i think it social distancing or distance from her friends. i think it depends on what the reality is like and i'm no teacher and i expect trying to corral 30 or so children into following procedures is going to be really difficult. there is lots of discussion about whether children, older children should have to wear face masks in the classroom, the moment the government saying it's not required. talking about hand washing in the classroom and other preventative measures, social distancing but as a parent and doctor where you sit on face masks? we know that if you go out to a supermarket, you have to wear a face mask preferably but we're saying we're not going to do that in schools. i'll be happy for my children to be older. if they were wearing it, no issue. it's becoming normalfor all
7:30 am
wearing it, no issue. it's becoming normal for all of wearing it, no issue. it's becoming normalfor all of us wearing it, no issue. it's becoming normal for all of us and while we can wash your hands as much as you like, if you are speaking out loud, you are talking loudly, answering questions perhaps and obviously coughing or sneezing, you're going to be more like you to transmit aerosols so think it's perhaps something that we may see changing in the next few months. there's been so much of that during this crisis, the science and information and the guidelines have been actuating quite a lot. and in the different nations of the uk as well. what about as we move on to this issue that's affecting a lot of us this weekend, trying to forget about coronavirus, the hot weather because we are dealing with that as well try to keep cool, hot and humid for a lot of those suffering with that air quality. your top tips? the first thing is recognising that it is extraordinarily hot at the moment, and if you are someone who doesn't eat or who has medical conditions that perhaps make you a
7:31 am
little more vulnerable, then trying to stay out of the direct sunlight, this is not the time to go out for a full day out in the glaring sun. try and keep cool and drinking plenty of water unless for medical reasons you are advised not to do that. making sure you have fans on, keeping the curtains closed, keep shading the house, and just really being sensible and understanding that you can't do lots of physical activities when it is warm. just chill out with a book in the shade. it is at extra challenge during this particular heat wave, isn't it, of the covid—19 kit crisis. wearing a mask is horrible when it is hot and humid and sticky. the temptation may be for some people not to do that, and you can't go to the beach and lay where you like. all these extra things we have to think about medically and socially. it is although we were at the beach in scarborough the other day, we had a lovely day, and people generally we re lovely day, and people generally were being pretty good about social
7:32 am
distancing. i think my concern is more about areas where people inevitably gather, public toilets, shops, fish and chip shops, as you say, we are actually the mask wearing goes out the window when you are hot and sweaty lots of people forgetting many wear masks sometimes and we are still getting used to it, and we are still getting used to it, and it does become more challenging. it will be interesting to see what happens to the figures over the next couple of weeks. thank you for joining us this morning. you are watching bbc breakfast. we wa nt we want to talk about the cricket. there wasn't an opportunity to put the kettle on. they certainly keep it interesting, this england side. yet again, they seemed down and out in the first test against pakistan yesterday. then they managed to wrestle it back, lost it again,
7:33 am
but eventually won it, thanks in large part to a ludicrous partnership between jos buttler and chris woa kes. adam wild was following the action. when test cricket is this absorbing, you can hardly wait to get started. england's first task was to keep the pakistan score down, give themselves a chance. but everyone took england's target higher and higher. the wickets eventually falling, but by then, the lead was beyond 270. a daunting prospect made all the more so when rory burns was sent on his way. there, it seems, still pretty to say. but england here needed actions, not words. ben stokes has so often helped england out of trouble, but could he give them a hand here? well, replays show the faintest brush of his glove, not the hand england needed. but a touch of brilliance finally came from chris woakes and jos buttler, the pair powering england back on course, both passing 50. but when buttler fell for 75, the tension was unbearable. with just four more needed, stuart broad went for
7:34 am
the big finish. it was the end for him. instead, it was the magnificent woakes with the winning runs — a day that england couldn't wait to start, finishing in glorious celebration. adam wild, bbc news. there was to be no big comeback from chelsea in the champions league. they were absolutely thumped by bayern munich in the last 16. it finished 7—1 on aggregate after they lost last night's second leg 4—1 in munich. despite his disappointment, the chelsea boss frank lampard is focusing on the positives. it isa it is a good exercise for us to look at this champions league experience in their ranks, hundreds of appearances through their team, and we had young players and i can see where i want us to go. it was an interesting game. i thought there was a light, disappointing to lose but we will be back.
7:35 am
hibs continue to set the very early pace in the scottish premiership. they beat livingston 4—1 to continue their 100% start to the season, kevin nisbet with a hat—trick in that one. ross county have also won both their games so far this term. celtic and rangers both play this afternoon. it could be a really big day for the formula 1 driver nico hulkenberg. he'll start today's 70th anniversary grand prix at silverstone from third to give himself the chance of finishing on the podium for the first time in a career spanning 177 races. what's more, he's only racing at all because sergio perez is still out with coronavirus. are the stars aligning for him today? we will find out. that starts at two o'clock. to san francisco next where it promises to be a fascinating final day at the us pga championship. the former world number one dustinjohnson has the lead on 9—under par going into the final round, but there are plenty in the chasing pack for the first
7:36 am
major title since the start of the pandemic. amongst them is britain's paul casey. he's a couple of shots off the leader. tommy fleetwood and justin rose also also still in the mix. what is remarkable to think that this is the first major since last july. it isjust this is the first major since last july. it is just incredible. this is the first major since last july. it isjust incredible. more than a year ago. at of course was the open input rush which was one by shane lowry. he had a terrible day, he had a run of bogeys and ended up snapping his club in r. he hasn't improved in the last year in that sense “— improved in the last year in that sense —— in half. much more action to come later on. u nless to come later on. unless there were no crowds there be embarrassed in front of. we are all watching, though! thank you for that. see you later. it's exactly 25 years today since the bbc journalist john schofield was shot dead while reporting on the war in croatia. he was 29 years old. in a moment, we'll speak tojohn's widow, susie,
7:37 am
about her determination to create something positive from his death. first, let's hear what some ofjohn's friends and colleagues, from both the bbc and itn, thought of him. new n ew co nvoy new convoy the refugees previously trapped by the last of the fighting have joined the desperate flight... he picked up the phone and burst into tears. it was the most awful day. the bbc reporterjohn schofield has been killed by croatian fire. on the day thatjohn died, he and i had breakfast together. he was sitting in the hotel restaurant and we found out that there was only one seat left in the bbc armoured land rover. he decided to toss a coin for it and john one. a few hours later, he was dead. a bbc report of the world tonightjohn scofield has been shot dead by croat soldiers. sarajevo has died relatively quiet this morning
7:38 am
about from the regular crack of a sniper puzzlement bullet. he was energetic, enthusiastic, desperate to make his mark. impact of all the people that have been trainees him was enormous because we just couldn't believe he was gone. he a lwa ys couldn't believe he was gone. he always wanted to be there, to witness the event as it happened. john wasjust the witness the event as it happened. john was just the kindest, most thoughtful, most lovely man, really, and he massively helped me, gave me usually valuable advice, and i will a lwa ys usually valuable advice, and i will always remember him for that. john's knocked us all for sex. the sheer senselessness of his loss has never gone away. but through his family and through the trust, his influence lives on. memories of john scofield, the journalist from his colleagues. we can speak now to john's widow, susie. thank you so much forjoining us. thank you so much forjoining us. thank you so much forjoining us. thank you for having me. those other people worked with him. you knew him
7:39 am
better than anybody. what are your memories ofjohn scofield? better than anybody. what are your memories of john scofield? he was just the most lovely of men. he was such fun, intelligent, he had a very strong moral compass with regards to his work. he cared very deeply about the stories he reported. he wanted to make sure that he treated eve ryo ne to make sure that he treated everyone fairly, and he was just an absolute sweetheart, and it is funny, with the campaign that we are running this weekend, remembering john, a lot of people have been joining in online, sharing the memories, and i am sending photographs i haven't seen before, and itjust photographs i haven't seen before, and it just reminds photographs i haven't seen before, and itjust reminds me so, so much about how happy we both were and just how gorgeous he was. as a young journalist, did john know his worth? did he know how much he was respect that and admired by his colleagues?
7:40 am
not at all. that amongst document that was one of the tragedies, because he went to his death not knowing how rated he was, and immediately afterjohn died, not surprisingly, i got lots of letters of condolence all saying what a rising star he was, and john knew nothing of this, and it was that that made me think i really wanted to create a lasting memorial to him that would recognise young journalists. i feel that no journalists. i feel that no journalist should go to the grave at the age of 29 not knowing how rated, how well—respected they are. the age of 29 not knowing how rated, how well-respected they are. and you have put huge of time and effort into that over the last few years. it is not just into that over the last few years. it is notjust this weekend of the anniversary. it is something that within the industry will know you have been campaigning for and working very hard on. but as far as
7:41 am
is anniversary is concerned, you talked about remembering as your #. but how do you rememberjohn this weekend and how do you turn it into action, interchange? weekend and how do you turn it into action, interchange ?|j weekend and how do you turn it into action, interchange? ithink what trying to replicate its most basic form isjohn's welcoming spirit. everyone who knew him, they commented on how welcoming a four c was ina commented on how welcoming a four c was in a newsroom. if anyone wanted any advice, he would freely give it without getting into the news. but thatis without getting into the news. but that is what is i'm trying to convert. john's death gained absolutely nothing, it was com pletely absolutely nothing, it was completely pointless and futile death, and i just completely pointless and futile death, and ijust have to make something positive out of it, and recognising young journalists, young talented journalist like john recognising young journalists, young talented journalist likejohn was the only thing i could really cling onto, and that is what i am working ha rd onto, and that is what i am working hard to do over the years. the first
7:42 am
insta nce we hard to do over the years. the first instance we set up an award with the royal television society, young journalist of the year award, and backin journalist of the year award, and back in about 2010, we decided actually there is more we could do forjohn. one of our trustees came up forjohn. one of our trustees came up with the idea of mentoring, so we have now men toured, it must be about 200 young journalists over the yea rs, about 200 young journalists over the years, and it has gone from strength to strength —— mentored. i wish we could offer more places. we have found —— far more demand than we have capacity. you have been celebrating incredible work of young journalists for a long time now, and helping them along, mentoring them. what were the biggest challenges for you now, and how can you best help journalists hoping to get into the industry and trying to progress? what are the biggest challenges?” think there are so many challenges facing the news industry at the moment, more funding, one of trust,
7:43 am
and also one of diversity. at the moment, 94% ofjournalists in the uk are white, and that is not representative of the uk as it stands now. so what the trust is trying to do is to support those members of the marginalised community, those who are not confronted by cameras, who are not working in the newsrooms to help them get a foot in the industry so that in ten years time, they will be in leading positions within the news industry so that their voices can be heard. and it is great to see the progress we have made. last year, i was absolutely delighted that channel 4 news, we've men toured a journalist a couple of years back, and she won the rts young talent of the year award, and that was just
7:44 am
completing the circle, really, and i was so pleased. we have had a lot of success and a lot of the mentees have gone on to be rising stars, butler is a good old, peter smith, there are so many of them. another from channel 4 news. we are talking about diversity in all its forms, because only 10% ofjournalists are from working—class back round, the number of generalists who went to feepaying schools away overrepresented. i think it is 43% of journalists compared to overrepresented. i think it is 43% ofjournalists compared to 7% of the population. that is right. 60% of population. that is right. 6096 of our intake this year were from state schools, and we prioritise candidates who are from backgrounds where they haven't had privilege. so thatis where they haven't had privilege. so that is our focus. and we are
7:45 am
reaping rewards, but it is a slow process. we need more funds so that we can offer more places. it saddens me when i have to turn people down. we have also got apprentice journalists as well because universities are the only route into journalism, so we really wanted to encourage those as well. thank you so much forjoining us here on brea kfast so much forjoining us here on breakfast this morning. it is good to talk. we can find out about the weather with stav. the temperatures of been high for many of us across the south—east and combine that with nor uncomfortable nights, it's been difficult for sleeping. we saw 35 celsius in the south—east, warm across much of england and wales,
7:46 am
much pressure for scotland and northern ireland but into next week, the heat and humidity will be spreading north. we should see quite a few good sunny spells. starting off rather grey and cloudy across parts of central and eastern england and into wales. this blanket of cloud, the odd spot of drizzle, it will melt away through the morning and into the afternoon, many places willjoin into the sunshine. a bit of cloud western parts of northern ireland, eastern northern ireland doing better with the sunshine, 20 degrees in belfast, 21 in the central belt. 33 degrees in the south—east. cool and fresh north sea coasts, the north—east breeze blowing across the uk. as we head on through tonight, staying warm and money. showers and thunderstorms developing. many places will be dry.
7:47 am
i humidity, developing. many places will be dry. ihumidity, a developing. many places will be dry. i humidity, a bit further west. it stays warm and humid. hot sunshine around, increasing chance of thunderstorms developing. on monday, they will loss across western parts of the country into northern ireland across the irish sea, wales, the south—west of england, really intense. elsewhere, lots of sunshine, staying very hot and humid. ifanything, the sunshine, staying very hot and humid. if anything, the heat and humidity creeping further north into southern scotland as you move out of monday and into tuesday, under the low sitting over biscayne and that will feed this warm and humid air in towards our direction, destabilising the atmosphere. slightly cooler air moving in of the atlantic. with a heated services on tuesday, the humidity and caller hour, more thunderstorms are likely to break out. the northern half of the country, the threat of those through tuesday afternoon. very hot again in
7:48 am
the south—east with high humidity. very warm nights and monkey as well as we had to enter next week. the outlook, not much change. very warm and humid. an increasing chance of thunderstorms. by the end of the week, starting to turn a little bit cooler and fresher, closer to the seasonal norm. we will be joined a bit later, stav, if you want some advice from the sleep feek, who will give us some advice on how to get some shuteye during these topical nights. we really do need to know that. i have the air conditioner on. he was telling us yesterday he's got an air—conditioning unit in his bedroom. fancy. i'm on the top floor flat, it's like a greenhouse. the roof space gets so hot. i tried to do everything you are supposed to
7:49 am
do, keep the windows closed and the blinds down but itjust doesn't. you feel it warming up more and more. the sleep geek will have all the advice you need. we'll be back with the headlines at 8:00. now it's time for the travel show. it's been 75 years, but survivors argue their memories of nuclear attack still need to be heard. this week hiroshima and nagasaki and the anniversary too important to cancel. and rajan gets to grips with the new gadgets designed for a perfectly socially distanced holiday. i have come to a city injapan that's known all around the world, but it's known forjust one event — the devastation and destruction caused by an american nuclear bomb dropped on this city 75 years ago this month during the final days of the second world war. today, though, much of hiroshima looks like any otherjapanese city.
7:50 am
in fact, coronavirus aside, it's doing well. this exhibition shows how the city has blossomed since. each august the city commemorates the event. but as this year's big 75th anniversary approached, coronavirus has severely restricted what was possible.
7:51 am
so this is to remember the dead. this is in honour of those who died and families come here and offer prayers for the souls of those who died. at hiroshima's peace park, an area that was once one of the city's busiest commercial hubs but was flattened by the blast has been made into a focus for its annual commemorations. about 60,000 or 70,000 people were killed on that day and mostly because of the radiation and injuries up to 100,000 people died by the end of 1945. in what's been the effect on hiroshima today? it has scarred the city. people were terrified of radiation and people stayed away from hiroshima. people who were from here
7:52 am
were discriminated against and it took the town a long time to rebuild but in its rebuilding one of its focuses was on trying to seek to eliminate nuclear weapons in the world. so it's really always remained a central defining aspect of this city's experience and the city's focus. the testimony of survivors here can reveal japan's difficult relationship with memories of the second world war. the number of survivors
7:53 am
are dwindling every year and this year's ceremonies will be the last significant anniversary many will attend. but despite the limitations placed on proceedings because of the pandemic, many are still eager to come out 01:53:08,356 --> 4294966103:13:29,430 and tell their story.
