5:31 am
platform tiktok. some teachers have been accused of being paedophiles or subjected to homophobic comments. schools are now calling on tiktok to take urgent action to remove what they say is disgraceful abuse of teachers online. tiktok says it is deploying additional measures to detect and remove offensive content and regrets upset caused to teachers. but teaching unions say it's not being done fast enough. 0ur education correspondent elaine dunkley has more. tiktok, a social media platform where people can create and share funny and quirky content, but there is a darker side to one of the latest trends. targeting teachers with abusive and offensive videos. this one shows tom rogers, a history teacher, posted from an anonymous account and viewed thousands of times. there were two videos using a derogatory term to describe someone who was
5:32 am
inappropriate towards children. you are thinking when you go in there that kids are laughing at you and whatever and everyone�*s seen it, so i have messaged tiktok, didn't get a reply, the videos are still there. there could be something tragic happen, and it's only then that something will have to be done. we had a number of staff who have been impacted by this and who are off currently. many schools across the uk have sent letters to parents warning them about schoolchildren creating and sharing videos targeting teachers. seen by, in one case, 2 million viewers... at the ellesmere port church of england college there have been a number of incidents. we are working with a number of staff at the moment who are finding it difficult to cope. we know that the children who have posted the videos, we're working with their families to make sure they understand what they've done wrong. bodies like tiktok must make sure that they can police this a bit better. you can take three separate resistors... these sixth formers say everyone in school has a responsibility to stop online bullying. when i first saw them, my first
5:33 am
response was to report it. report it as, like, bullying and harassment. some of the videos you see are just literal attacks on one individual. i know one teacher- has been affected the most. i haven't seen him around school since the incident. | in a statement, tiktok says its community guidelines make clear that it doesn't tolerate content that contains bullying or harassment. statements targeting an individual or hateful speech or behaviour, and will remove content that violates these guidelines. but teaching unions say videos are not being taken down quickly enough. tiktok is living in a parallel universe, frankly. they are not taking this issue seriously, they're not giving a sense of urgency, and they're definitely not recognising that they should be taking responsibility to help us adults educate young people about how you conduct yourself responsibly on social media. what can schools do about this? when tom's not teaching, he hosts a weekly show
5:34 am
on teachers talk radio. you've got school websites, and we've got all our photographs online... but teachers say they don't just want words, they want action from social media sites like tiktok. elaine dunkley, bbc news. now on bbc news, it's time for the travel show with christa larwood. coming up this week... making rally racing more climate friendly in italy. it rally racing more climate friendly in italy.- friendly in italy. it is incredible, - friendly in italy. it is incredible, isn't - friendly in italy. it is incredible, isn't it. l friendly in italy. it is| incredible, isn't it. it friendly in italy. it is - incredible, isn't it. it was aood incredible, isn't it. it was good fun- _ incredible, isn't it. it was good fun. from - incredible, isn't it. it was good fun. from macy - good fun. from macy thanksgiving parade to the mountain festival in england's lake district. 0ur mountain festival in england's lake district. our local guide to what is coming up. and three adventurers, one old banger and adventurers, one old banger and a frozen siberian lake. the adventurers, one old banger and a frozen siberian lake.— a frozen siberian lake. the sun will be down _ a frozen siberian lake. the sun will be down in _ a frozen siberian lake. the sun will be down in ten _ a frozen siberian lake. the sun will be down in ten minutes . a frozen siberian lake. the sun| will be down in ten minutes and we are in the middle of nowhere. it is not a great
5:35 am
situation. hello and welcome to the travel show, on the road again and this week coming from the beautiful italian island of sardinia. you probably have of the monaco grand prix, the decker rally but this year a brand—new series on the international motor racing scene and this one comes with a bit of difference. it is on a mission to save the planet. this is extreme—e, a series of
5:36 am
electric off—road races and it is all in the name of protecting the environment. this is the first season and so far they have been to saudi arabia, senegal, greenland and now here in sardinia. motor racing and saving the environment don't usually go hand—in—hand so i am intrigued to find out exactly how it all works. hello. look at this thing, it is a breeze. it works. hello. look at this thing, it is a breeze.- thing, it is a breeze. it is. it is. thing, it is a breeze. it is. it is- it— thing, it is a breeze. it is. it is- it is— thing, it is a breeze. it is. it is. it is kind _ thing, it is a breeze. it is. it is. it is kind of - thing, it is a breeze. it is. it is. it is kind of new- thing, it is a breeze. it is. l it is. it is kind of new wage. it is. it is kind of new wage. it has to be big and strong. shall we get onto the track and have a look? we can have a go. traditionally rally cars a huge gas guzzlers, consuming even more viewers than that fi counterparts, a massive 50 litres per 100 kilometres. although this championship has a cabin footprint, extreme—e is
5:37 am
committed to being cabin neutral by the end of its first season by offsetting its emissions. 0h, oh, my goodness, this thing absolutely goes. it oh, my goodness, this thing absolutely goes.— absolutely goes. it is incredible. _ absolutely goes. it is incredible. it - absolutely goes. it is incredible. it is - absolutely goes. it is incredible. it is a - absolutely goes. it is. incredible. it is a good absolutely goes. it is - incredible. it is a good fun. it is fun behind the wheels i am not sure what it is like to be a passenger.— be a passenger. what is it likely driving _ be a passenger. what is it likely driving one - be a passenger. what is it likely driving one of - be a passenger. what is it likely driving one of these j likely driving one of these big, fast crazy electric vehicles? it big, fast crazy electric vehicles?— big, fast crazy electric vehicles? , , ' vehicles? it is very different to what i — vehicles? it is very different to what i am _ vehicles? it is very different to what i am used _ vehicles? it is very different to what i am used to. - vehicles? it is very different to what i am used to. not . vehicles? it is very different. to what i am used to. not have as many gear changes. it is like driving an automatic on a real fast track. you like driving an automatic on a realfast track. you get like driving an automatic on a real fast track. you get really sweaty, the adrenaline is
5:38 am
intensive. there are bumps, jumps, a lot of heart in your mouth moments so it is for london. it feels like a racecar and it is enjoyable to drive when it is sliding on the gravel. i think the next generation will be exciting because you could still have the battle and excitement and the battle and excitement and the proper racing and it is just obviously a lot more sustainable. i just obviously a lot more sustainable.— just obviously a lot more sustainable. ~ ., .,. sustainable. i think of racing and i think— sustainable. i think of racing and i think of— sustainable. i think of racing and i think of big, _ sustainable. i think of racing and i think of big, dirty, - and i think of big, dirty, produces a lot of cabin and if this is the absolute opposite of that. i this is the absolute opposite of that. ~ , . ., of that. i think it is changing the way we _ of that. i think it is changing the way we view _ of that. i think it is changing | the way we view motorsport. normally we go to a racetrack and go to a hotel, whereas we are working with scientists a lot closer and learning stuff i have not known before. extreme—e runs local environmental projects before every race, where even the drivers get stuck into hell. it feels like going on holiday before a race when we come and
5:39 am
learn. this won't be doing in sardinia going to be very fun. we're going to be learning about the seagrass and how much of an effect it has on the environment. katie and the other drivers are taking part in a project in the southern sardinia that plants seagrass. the races will then show what they have learnt on social media to try and spread knowledge about this important climate change strategy. it is a bit different to the coral reefs i have snorkelled before. it is not quite as a scenic but it is amazing to think that stuff waving down they could be one of the keys to combating climate change. like underwater lungs, seagrass is incredibly efficient at capturing carbon.
5:40 am
it absorbs 10% of the ocean's cabin each year, despite only taking up 0.2% of the sea floor. christa larwood is the first sport set up for tackling climate change and we use this fantastic men and women drivers to educate people. extreme—e. how do you narrow down to key locations? we how do you narrow down to key locations?— locations? we look at densification, - locations? we look at densification, rising l locations? we look at l densification, rising sea levels, melting of play shares, deforestation, which has that double impact that it actually speeds up climate change so we look at those five locations and we look around the world and we look around the world and we look around the world and we see where the stories can be told in the best way possible, where we have the best relationships, where the challenges are the biggest and where the racing is that as
5:41 am
well. realauthentic where the racing is that as well. real authentic great sports and communicating a really, really challenging issue. ., , really, really challenging issue. . , ., , issue. the teams were actually meant to be — issue. the teams were actually meant to be racing _ issue. the teams were actually meant to be racing in - issue. the teams were actually meant to be racing in the - meant to be racing in the amazonas part of original plan but due to covid they have had to postpone that to next year. it is a big operation but not too farfrom the it is a big operation but not too far from the race that is that mobile attic which carries all equipment and cars to where they need to be. they say it cuts two—thirds of the carbon emissions. i was not quite sure what to expect from this event but it has to speak, the dust, the excitement and listen, no crowds and no throbbing petrol engines. most live exports rely on spectator crowds but extreme—e is taking the opposite approach, to reduce the impact on locations, fans have to instead keep up with the action online. despite all
5:42 am
of this, i still had some questions about the sports green potential. how do you reconcile making it a good event when there is some travel involved? ., event when there is some travel involved? . . ., involved? the real change will only happen — involved? the real change will only happen in _ involved? the real change will only happen in the _ involved? the real change will only happen in the real- involved? the real change will only happen in the real world. | only happen in the real world. ideally, nobody would do any ambitions. but even if you stay in bed, you admit cabin. the positive effect needs to be bigger than the footprint that you have. if you want to make change happen, you have to do stuff. what we do, of course, we reduce the maximum the emissions, for example we produce our power with hydrogen. produce our power with hydrogen-— produce our power with hydrogen. produce our power with hdrouen. , ., hydrogen. why pair and eco- message _ hydrogen. why pair and eco- message with _ hydrogen. why pair and eco- message with motorsports? | hydrogen. why pair and eco- i message with motorsports? we want to use _ message with motorsports? - want to use motorsports, which is very, very... it has big orders, to break the bubble. environmentalists already know what is going on but sports
5:43 am
fans, not everybody knows so we put 50 minutes of racing and five minutes of messaging from scientists. that is how we use a sport to amplify the message. i would love to convey a message, to give so much information about climate change to also promote climate action in people that otherwise would not have known what is going on in this area. it is not a spectator _ going on in this area. it is not a spectator sport - going on in this area. it is not a spectator sport but| going on in this area. it is not a spectator sport but you can catch it on your tv at home and you can participate by helping your favourite driver by getting to pole position on final day. get online and cast your vote. final day. get online and cast yourvote. i'm going final day. get online and cast your vote. i'm going to vote for katie, obviously. katie and the andretti team did not win at this event but there is
5:44 am
still one more to go this season. next up, south america. —— next stop. well, if that look pretty exciting but it is not quite what you're looking for on holiday, there are plenty of other ways to enjoy sardinia. he is our global guide. cagliari is the island's capital, an ancient city so the many historical sites are a big attraction. the winding streets of castello, the mediaeval old town, are worth exploring with the 13th century cathedral of santa maria being a particular highlight. suddenly a's beaches are famous for their white sands and crystal clear waters. you will need to rent a car to see some of the best, randy dingee beach in the north is popular with snorkellers and surrounded by pinewood. if you
