1:46 pm
leah was my daughter. she was 15 when she died, after taking mdma. unlikely friendship. yeah, very unlikely. we're both grieving. they're both our children. we both lost something. yeah. you know, i know i have a son that i can tangibly touch... yeah. ..but i don't have that happy—go—lucky boy any more. yeah. and you have lost leah. yeah. you know, to the same drug, mdma, to the same evil. so i got a phone call that evening, as soon as i got there, she was sort of fitting on the car park floor. she was so conscious, like she was still conscious, but not 100%. she said, mum, she knew i was there. within a second, she was...
1:47 pm
she didn't speak again. i don't really remember much from there. so, i'm the mum... can i stop for a minute? i find this hard. i'm tammy, i'm the mother of the, i will say young boy at the time or young teenager, he was a teenager at the time, that supplied the mdma to another young teenager on that night. i was struggling with him, emotions were changing, his whole manner was changing and i was fighting services every day, asking them to come help me. they should be injail.
1:48 pm
i get how my friends, my family... i don't have the same hatred for connor as i did. i think that is very... if it was the other way round, i don't know if i could not have that hatred. yes. the campaign of doing it together, i think people will stop and look and they will probably be shocked at first because we are working together. the campaign is do you know mdma? to get the message out that mdma isn't a fun party drug, we want people to know mdma kills. and we don't want another leah, we don't want another connor. if we feel like we have told our story and tried to educate people, there we can't really do much else. but there has to be, leah died,
1:49 pm
and i can't let that be for no reason. one of the unexpected highlights of lockdown last year was discovering that our owain is a whiz on the drums. now he is putting those skills to good use with a 2k hour drumathon to raise money for children in need. he tookjane mccubbin to his hometown in ammanford in south wales to show her where his love for the drum started. we are taking owain home. here we are. back to wales. back to ammanford. hello! mum and dad! back to his mum and dad. jayne. alan, cathy, my parents. chris on camera. you've brought the obligatory embarrassing baby photos. well, we have a couple here, yes. there you go. a dedicated follower of fashion.
1:50 pm
even then i tried to work an outfit. owain wyn evans, flamboyant weather presenter, was born with a shock of red hair in ammanford in 1984. and from an early age he wondered if he would ever really fit in. cathy's father wasi a mining engineer. my father was a coal miner. 84 when you were born. i remember i had this pink moped. it was the most flamboyant bike you could imagine. always interested in things you wouldn't expect. the drums as a four—year—old. then we started on the disco lights. a smoke machine. we thought the shed was on fire. but it was the smoke machine. ammanford had never seen anything like this, i would imagine?
1:51 pm
i don't suppose, no! but none of this was easy in the former mining town. you know, i knew i was gay from a young age, but here in ammanford there was just no reference point as far as that went, wasn't there? one thing really helped. i came across them today. in the garden, in the shed, behind some chairs. - oh, my god! i think here i would have been about 17 or 18. the overtones was a school band. could you fully be yourself then? had you come out at that point? no, i hadn't come out. at this stage section 28 was still a thing. somebody like me wouldn't be able

he isjust him and we love him to bits! _ the shortlist for this years riba stirling prize for architecture includes an eco—friendly mosque in cambridge, a footbridge on the cornish coast and the centrepiece of a university in south—west london. today it is the turn of the windermerejetty museum in the lake district. it is the first contemporary building on the shores of windermere for more than 50 years.
1:54 pm
ifound it an enormous privilege being trusted to imagine a building in such a beautiful setting. this building is intentionally a very atmospheric visitor experience. i'm rowan seaford. i'm an associate director at carmody groarke. i'm andy groarke, of carmody groarke architects, and we are the architects for the windermerejetty museum. the museum is seen and approached from all sides, so you can arrive by boat to one of the jetties, or you can arrive by foot or by car by land. the centrepiece of the wooden wet dock is surrounded by a cluster of copper—clad buildings. we spent a year up here to understand the seasons and how different materials weather in the lake district environment. over time, the building will develop, it's inevitable, oxidisation, in order to give the building quite a timeless quality.
1:55 pm
the brief for this building . was to create a world—class building in which to house the internationally- significant boat collection. it needs to be a building that - could accommodate large—scale boats, that was exciting for the public to want to visit, but also, - importantly, because it sat within one of our great - national parks, the lake district national park, . it had to be part of the landscape it was within. sustainability has been really central to the concept of the building. we have systems such as the lake—source heat pump that heats the whole museum, underpinning the energy strategy. we've selected, wherever possible, local materials, so that the travel from source to site is as short as possible. the building has a zero—waste strategy so, actually, all of the domestic waste water is treated on—site and it's filtered through the landscape and reed beds, so it can then be discharged back into the lake as clean water. the site isjust amazing.
1:56 pm
it reflects boat—building, it reflects restoration, i it reflects conservation. some of the success of what the team has achieved here is a building that is simultaneously foreground and background. foreground's the visitor experience, it's the building that's here. and yet, it's the background, it's the backdrop to a beautiful landscape setting and immersing yourself in a fantastic collection. the windermere jetty the windermerejetty museum in the lake district, one of six shortlisted entries for britain's best new building. we will be live at the award ceremony with a special programme tomorrow night here at 7:30pm. time for the weather forecast. a lot of fine weather to come through the rest of the day today.
