plastic pollution problem that an investigation by panorama reveals they are struggling to make the progress required to meet their promises and in some places, particularly in some of the worlds poor relations, things are getting worse. our correspondent has the story. here is refreshment you can enjoy quickly and conveniently. in the 1950s, coca—cola was so 7 in the 1950s, coca—cola was so ? sold in glass bottles. the company would collect them, wash them and re—use them. these lighter, plastic bottles take pounds of your shopping low. bi; take pounds of your shopping low. �* , �* :: , take pounds of your shopping low. j �* ::, low. by the '70s, coke was promoting _ low. by the '70s, coke was promoting plastic. - low. by the '70s, coke was promoting plastic. single l low. by the '70s, coke was i promoting plastic. single use ilastic is promoting plastic. single use plastic is just _ promoting plastic. single use plastic is just a _ promoting plastic. single use plastic isjust a mass - promoting plastic. single use plastic isjust a mass moneyl plastic isjust a mass money saver— plastic isjust a mass money saver for— plastic isjust a mass money saver for all sorts of companies, including coca—cola and they— companies, including coca—cola and they use incredibly cheap plastic— and they use incredibly cheap plastic to make the packaging and put — plastic to make the packaging and put it on the market and it is and put it on the market and it isiob— and put it on the market and it isjob done, it is gone. in and put it on the market and it is job done, it is gone.- is job done, it is gone. in the last three — is job done, it is gone. in the last three years _ is job done, it is gone. in the last three years alone, - last three years alone, 156,000,000,000 of coca—cola's plastic bottles has been littered, burned or dumped, but
coke knew you add an image problem, so announce the plan to recycle more bottles called a world without waste. but, if you look at the small print, there is an admission. there bottles are only recyclable where infrastructure exists. this is the pacific island of samoa. in february, coke stopped producing glass bottles here and started shipping in thousands of plastic bottles. two of the population who was only 200,000. we don't generate enough plastic bottle facility here on the island. coca—cola have set up a scheme to pay people $1 for every kilo of plastic bottles they collect. but so far, none has been exported for recycling. halfway across the globe from samoa is uganda. here, not enough bottles are being collected to

pledge, our investigation has revealed that coca—cola is struggling to make the head way required to meet their green goals. coca—cola is a master of green washing. green washing is pretending that something is green when actually it is anything but green. and evidence from break free from plastic suggest that more plastic suggest that more plastic coke packaging is littered than any other brand. coca—cola say they are making good progress but have a long way to go and are campaigning to encourage recycling in samoa and are working hard to help waste pickers, but, if the biggest global plastic polluters do not reach their targets, the world's poorest will suffer even more. some breaking news now and we are getting reports possible coup attempt under way in sudan. 0ne attempt under way in sudan. one report suggest an identified military force were besieging
the home of the prime minister. and also said troops had arrested for cabinet ministers and a civilian member of the transitional government. the sudanese professionals association has called on people to take to the streets to resist any military coup and there are now reports coming in that the internet has been cut off in the country. we will bring you more on that as it comes in. the actorjames michael taylor who found fame as gunter on the hit tv show friends has died of prostate cancer. it was 59. one brothers which made the seo said he was a beloved actor and integral pa rt part of the friends family. its focus was on six friends, but a seven the character also made a big impression.
i thought you were chandler. guenther�*s infatuation... a recurring theme and is fence popularity grew so did the man originally credited simply as coffee guy. but of course he had one storyline everyone remembers. lam iamjust making i am just making a list of pe0ple's_ i am just making a list of people's birthdays.- people's birthdays. no, whatever. _ people's birthdays. no, whatever. i— people's birthdays. no, whatever. i finished - people's birthdays. no, whatever. i finished it l people's birthdays. no, i whatever. i finished it and people's birthdays. iifr, whatever. i finished it and did whatever. ifinished it and did it all by myself. and there is nobody to hug. it was so important to fans, the show felt they had to resolve it in friends�* final episode. i just have to tell you i love you. i love you too. probably not in the same way. there were other small roles. and he was reunited with his cast mates in bbc�*s it can, recap episode. is that the best you have got? but his legacy will always be friends. too ill to appear in person, he joined the show�*s reunion
special remotely. it was the most memorable ten years of my life, honestly. i cannot have imagined a better experience. all of these guys were fantastic. it was just a joy to work with them and i felt very, very special. the world's biggest show would never have been quite what it was without james michael tyler's gunther. the actorjames michael tyler who has died at the age of 59.
he started outjust as an extra on the show and it wasn't until i think well into the second season that we gave him his first line, which i think he just said "yeah". but as time went on i think we realised he's funny. i'm in, he is a really good actor. and wejust giving him more and more and when we realised there was a storyline with his secret love of rachel it just. .. it was the gift that kept on giving. and lasted for the rest of the series. his delivery was impeccable. i think that was the thing, at first we thought it will be fun and we will do it once or twice. but he was so good that we found ourselves going to him for, like, the punchline for a whole scene or for a whole episode. he would get the last line. so, yes, even though it was sort of economical, he kept giving us everything that we needed and, ultimately, the audience really cared about gunther.
tributes for the late actor have been pouring in across social media. jennifer aniston posted on instagram, friends would not have been the same without you. thank you for the laughter you brought to the show and do all of our lives. you will be so missed. kevin bright, former executive producer said, he was an incredible person who spent his final days helping others. god bless you, james. gunter lives for ever. courteney cox, who starred in france says the size of gratitude you brought into the room is the size of the gratitude i hold for having known you. let's get some of the days of the news. an extra £5.5 the days of the news. an extra £55 billion will be given to £5.5 billion will be given to the nhs in england as part of the nhs in england as part of the british chancellor's rishi sunak�*s budget on wednesday. the aim is to clear the backlog and on nonurgent tests and procedures developed during the pandemic. rishi sunak says it is game changing but health bodies have welcomed the extra money but also point to the system ? persistent problems
around staff shortages. the islamic state group has claimed responsibility for a bomb attack at a bar in the ugandan capital, kampala. police described the actors domestic terror said three men bought food and drink in place an explosive device under a table that went off moments after they left. 20 —year—old waitress died in the attack. 0ther waitress died in the attack. other people were injured. a powerful storm in northern california, torrential rains or triggering mudslides in areas caused by wildfires earlier this year. gale force winds are brought down electricity lines in several areas are on high alert forflash in several areas are on high alert for flash flooding. a facebook whistle—blower, frances haugen, is due to give evidence to mps at westminster later. she will give her the one government plan to regulate social media. she says the company harms children, damages democracy and puts money before its users.
what's so dangerous about having children under the age of 16, under the age of 18, using systems like instagram is that facebook�*s own research shows that a startlingly high fraction of them exhibit what is known as problematic use, which means that they can't regulate their own usage of the product. it's kind of like cigarettes in that way. and they know it's hurting their physical health, their schoolwork or their employment. unquestionably, facebook could be investing more resources in making the platforms safer. they have made a series of choices to prioritise profits over people. facebook disagrees with the former employee, saying it cares deeply about issues like safety, wellbeing and mental health. and we will have more on that story in the business programme in around 20 minutes' time. to stay with a c on bbc news. still to come, the eight—year—old triplets appointed c0 p26 eight—year—old triplets appointed cop26 ambassadors after litter picking and spreading the word about conservation in the past two years ? do stay with us.

streets to resist any military takeover. that is it me for the moment. they will be back shortly with the day's top business stories. in the meantime you can reach me on twitter. hello there. we're starting the new week off on a sunshine and showers theme. we'll have plenty of showers across southern and western areas. a lot of central and eastern parts will tend to stay dry with a good deal of sunshine around. it's going to be breezy for all, quite windy in the north and the west because we'll be close to this area of low pressure which is anchored to the north of the uk. so you can see quite a few isobars on the chart, these weather fronts enhancing the shower activity as they move from west to east. and we're in a mild air mass, as you can see from the yellow and orange colours. so then we start monday off on a fine note across central and eastern areas, dry with some sunshine. there will be showers from the word go across western areas. these will tend to become more widespread, very frequent across the north—west of scotland. merging together to produce longer spells of rain, quite cloudy too. some heavy ones as well across the south of england.
some of these could contain some hail and thunder. a few getting in towards the east on this strong west south—westerly breeze, but many eastern areas should stay dry. and it will be windy, particularly around coasts of scotland, particularly the northern and western isles. temperatures mild again in the south, 14 to 16 celsius, maybe a little bit fresher across scotland and northern ireland. as we move through monday night, it stays breezy, lengthy clear spells, further showers. these showers will tend to fade away because we'll start to see this weather front approaching northern ireland and western scotland later in the night to bring some windy weather, more cloud and more persistent rain around. it's going to be another pretty mild night to come, temperatures no lower than around six or seven celsius. so here is the pressure chart for tuesday. we've got a pretty vigorous area of low pressure to the north—west of the uk. this weather front will be affecting more northern and west parts of the country. further south and east you are, close to this area of high pressure over the near continent, then it is likely to stay largely dry. but it will be a breezy day wherever you are. like i mentioned, staying largely dry with some sunny spells across southern and eastern areas. cloudier further north and west, outbreaks of rain, some heavy and persistent, particularly across western hills, northern and western scotland, perhaps into north—west england, north—west
wales at times. it will be pretty cloudy and dull, but look at these temperatures. despite the cloud and rain in the north, all the sunshine in the south, looking at temperatures a good five degrees above average. it's very mild as we move into the middle part of the week. further wet and windy weather across north—western areas, and by friday, it looks like some of that wet weather will reach southern and eastern parts as well. see you later.
