1:01 am
the makers of squid game say the wildly popular, south koran series is coming back next year. live from our studio in singapore, this is bbc news, it is newsday. it's 9:00 in the morning in singapore, and midnight ——1am at the glasgow climate summit, where global leaders have been warned the world is still heading for dangerously high temperatures by the end of the century. that's even if countries stick to their promises. the aim is to keep global temperature rises below 1.5 degrees celsius, but researchers say it will be impossible to reach that goal based on the pledges that have been made so far. but when governments�* actual policies, rather than pledges, are analysed, the world's projected warming is 2.7 degrees by 2100.
1:02 am
the climate action tracker warns that even if pledges are kept — a big if — temperatures will still rise by 1.8 degrees — that's above the target. from glasgow here's our science editor david shukman. this is what the talks are all about — keeping the planet safe to live on. and when astronaut tim peake filmed this view, he was really struck by what we keep adding to the air and what that is doing to the climate, so he's come to the conference in glasgow to spell out the dangers. every sunrise and sunset, we see earth's atmosphere, just 16 kilometres thick, and you realise that's it, that's what protects all life down here on the planet. and if we put things into that atmosphere, for example, wildfires, you see them covering entire continents, and the smoke disperses, and that's when you really appreciate that it doesn't have anywhere else to go. you know, we're all on this one planet together. but the challenge here at this massive gathering is to get delegates from nearly 200 countries to agree on what to do, to try to slow down
1:03 am
the pace of climate change. so, after ten days of talking, what's actually been achieved in terms of heading off the risk of the planet getting hotter? well, just before the conference started, we were on course for an increase of 2.7 degrees celsius, a really dangerous prospect. now, if everyone keeps the promises they've made in recent days, that's come down to something like 1.8 degrees celsius, but it all depends on everyone keeping their word, and even if they do, that's still above the target of 1.5 degrees, so the problem is far from sorted. we don't have much time. we want to stay under 1.5, and we're already seeing the climate changing, so now we need to invest, we need to protect, we cannot kick this can down the road. it is not something we can do in 2030, 2050, we need to do it in 2021 and 2022.
1:04 am
new extremes of temperature are proving hazardous in many regions already, and a study by met office scientists warns that a billion people could be affected by a combination of rising heat and humidity. working outdoors could become almost impossible. so, for some, climate change is about survival, including the tiny island nations of the pacific. the realities of climate change this government minister in tuvalu recorded a video appeal for help. we cannot wait for speeches when the sea is rising around us all the time. he's banking on the next few days of negotiations coming up with a way to make the world less threatening. david shukman, bbc news, in glasgow.
1:05 am
michael mann from the earth system science center at penn state university. earlier he told me the cop26 summit is likely to disappoint those wanting decisive climate action. we're not going together progress we had hoped for, but there has been a fair of progress made, and your correspondence spoke to that earlier. if you take all of the pledges made at this point and at the totality of those pledges, and you plug them into a computer model, what you find is that warming now comes likely and at below two celsius, would likely keep the planet less than two celsius warmer, relative to the preindustrial. that is roughly half of where we were headed just one decade ago, towards four celsius. four celsius would be a catastrophic future. two celsius, that will be a tough future, we want to get it below 1.5 celsius, and a lot of work still has to be done to get there, but this isn't the end. glasgow isn't the end of the process. in some sense, it is the beginning of an era
1:06 am
where we are starting to make some real progress, we are starting to bend that emissions curb downward, which is what we need to do. it is interesting that you say that it isn't the end. i remember the paris agreement. that was supposed to be the point at which we really solve climate change, and yet here we are at cop26 and, yes, further down the road, but what else needs to be done? yes, and make no mistake, there has been some progress since paris. we flattened the curve in paris, basically carbon emissions stopped rising. well, thatis emissions stopped rising. well, that is the first step but we need to bring them down and we need to bring them down and we need to bring them down about 50%, globally, in the next decade, so what needs to happen? eva millic of conservative national energy agency, which has been no cheerleader for renewable energy has been very blunt, we need to and all fossil fuel infrastructure, and that means the united states, the uk, the
1:07 am
eu, australia, we can't continue to build new oil and gas pipelines and new coal mines. itjust isn't consistent with a pathway that keeps warming below catastrophic levels. professor, are you seeing that political well at cop26 to make what you are describing a reality? i will tell you where i am seeing it, iam i will tell you where i am seeing it, i am seeing i will tell you where i am seeing it, iam seeing it i will tell you where i am seeing it, i am seeing it in the tens of thousands of children who are marching in the streets, because that's where the pressure is coming. we see quite a bit of change in the narrative, a change in the dialogue with politicians at least are starting to talk the talk, we need to see them walk the walk, but we have seen a seachange in the overall framing and that is because of the pressure that youth, protesters are but world leaders, so they need to keep that pressure on. it is making a real difference. professor michael mann from penn state university. the european union says it
1:08 am
will impose additional sanctions on belarus because of what it describes as president lukashenko�*s gangster—style approach to the migrants gathering at the polish border. his regime has been accused of attracting migrants to belarus, from the middle east, in order to send them across the polish border, in retaliation for european sanctions. at least 2,000 migrants are now gathered in freezing temperatures in belarus from where our correspondent nick beake reports. 0n the edge of the european union, a new, desperate migrant camp has just emerged. 0n the left, those who have come to belarus and now made their way to the border with poland. 0n the right, barbed wire and lines of troops, stopping them from crossing. emergency sirens. throughout the day we watched reinforcements race towards the village of kuznica. poland already has a force of 12,000 guarding its eastern
1:09 am
border and is keeping aid agencies and journalists away. but we managed to make contact with some of those trapped in the freezing forest. we feel so bad because nobody help us in here and we so hungry and thirsty, no water, no food, no help. like most here, aziz is kurdish, and from iraq. that's all poland police, they don't let us get inside. a big tension in here. and so many family here and little children. what did the belarus police say to you? nothing, just "go," and, "you can't turn back". did they help you get to the border at all? yes, they help us. but getting any nearer to where this crisis has erupted is not possible, as we soon found out. can we go further in?
1:10 am
are we allowed to go further towards the border today? no, no. poland, like neighbouring lithuania, is maintaining a state of emergency here. this is as close as we can get to the poland—belarus border today because beyond this checkpoint lies a part of the european union that the polish authorities do not want us to see for ourselves. they are dealing with this growing migrant crisis, out of sight and on their own terms. poland has the support of the eu and nato, which accused belarus of using civilians as weapons in retaliation for sanctions. something the lukashenko regime denies. and warsaw says moscow is pulling the strings. translation: this attack, - which lukashenko is conducting, has its mastermind in moscow. the mastermind is president putin. moscow denies this. tonight, belarus�*s president said he didn't want an armed confrontation, but warned that any escalation would bring in its ally, russia.
1:11 am
translation: it will. immediately drag russia into this whirlpool and it's the largest nuclear armed power. i'm nota madman. i understand very well where this could lead to. the united nations is calling for calm, but the politics are bitter and the situation on the ground, increasingly desperate. nick beake, bbc news, on the polish—belarussian border. let's take a look at some other stories in the headlines. the united nations says 16 of its staff members have been detained in the ethiopian capital addis ababa. a un spokesperson said six others had been released. it's not yet clear why the staff were picked up but human rights groups have raised the alarm about the increasing number of arrests of ethnic tigrayans. here in singapore, people who choose not to be vaccinated for covid will have to pay for their own treatment from next month, if they're infected.
1:12 am
the government says it's an important signal to those still refusing to be jabbed. 85% of people in singapore are fully vaccinated. the unvaccinated account for the majority of people in intensive care with covid. andrew gale, the head coach of yorkshire county cricket club in england, has been suspended as part of an investigation into a tweet he sent in 2010. thejewish news reported that he published a post containing an anti—semitic slur. gale told the newspaper that he was "completely unaware" of the offensive nature of the term and deleted the post as soon as he was made aware. a usjudge has ruled that a congressional committee investigating the january the sixth attack on congress can access some of former president trump's white house records. the ruling came hours after the committee issued subpoenas to ten more trump administration officials, including a former senior adviser and his press secretary.
1:13 am
in a statement, donald trump condemned the committee and repeated false claims that the election was fraudulent. 0ur north america correspondent peter bowes has the latest. the committee is trying to piece together the events surrounding january the 6th and the lead—up. and that includes what the president was doing, who he was talking to, what meetings he and his associates were having, in the committee trying to get a full picture, perhaps to see whether anything is happening in the white house could be linked to what the groups actually did on the day, in terms of storming the capitol building. so, the documents in question largely administrative documents, telephone records, visitor logs, so it's clear that the committee wants to know who has been
1:14 am
going into and out of the white house and possibly into the oval office to see the president, and also any telephone calls that he was making at that time. the president orformer president as he is now at cited executive privilege to stop these documents being released. that is used to maintain the confidentiality of some white house documents, but clearly the judge in this case does not think it applies. peter, there's also news coming out of the fact that the duke of sussex warned that twitter ceo, that his platform is going to allow a crew to be staged against the us a day before the january the 6th riots. what news do you have a more can you tell us about that? yes, this is come out in an online summit organised by wired magazine, quite a wide ranging discussion about tabloid journalism and the internet and at one
1:15 am
point, harry was saying that the internet was defined by hate, division and lies and it came up during the discussion that he had had an email exchange with the ceo of twitter, the day before the attack on congress. this would be january the 5th and during that conversation, he says that she warned jack that twitter could be allowing a coup to be staged against the united states and he says, he hasn't heard from jack since but what we do know is that twitter and other social media platforms are also being looked into for their role in what happened on january the 6th. thank you forjoining us on this day with that update. if you want to get in touch with me, i'm on twitter — @bbckarishma. you're watching news day on the bbc. still to come on the programme: we speak to the model and feminist campaigner whose new book confronts the contradictions in her own
1:16 am
relationship with her body. the bombastic establishment outsider donald trump has defied the pollsters to take the keys to the oval office. i feel great about the election results. i voted for him because i genuinely believe that he cares about the country. it's keeping the candidate's name always in the public. eye that counts. success or failure depends not only on public display - but on the local campaign l headquarters and the heavy routine work of their women volunteers. i berliners from both east and west linked hands and danced around their liberated territory. and with nobody to stop them, it wasn't long before the first attempts were made to destroy the structure itself. yasser arafat, who dominated the palestinian cause for so long, has died. palestinian authority has declared a state of mourning. after 17 years of discussion, the result was greeted with an outburst ofjoy, leaving ministers who long felt
1:17 am
only grudgingly accepted among the ranks of clergy suddenly felt welcome. this is newsday on the bbc. i'm karishma vaswani in singapore. 0ur headlines: a tough challenge for the climate summit. scientists warn that even with the pledges in glasgow, temperatures will rise beyond global targets. lithuania declares a state of emergency, to prevent a surge of migrants from belarus. thousands are trapped at the border in freezing conditions. supermodel emily ratajkowski says she was told to "get ugly" if she wanted to make it as an actor in hollywood. in an interview with the bbc�*s newsnight programme, she also spoke about her alleged sexual assault by robin thicke on the set of the blurred lines music video, in 2013.
1:18 am
the american model accused thicke of groping her without consent while filming the video in her newly published book my body. i think a lot of people, when they think of the word model, they don't understand there is a tonne of anonymous working models and i was at the time one of them. and the otherjobs that i remember doing sometimes dealing with middle—aged men who were having lingerie in their apartments and the blurred lines felt incredible. women ask me how i felt, they wanted me to like what i was wearing, it felt fun to dance around with a bunch of women around. it's a very comfortable i think that is the silliness that you seen the video and the video came out, i felt very protective of that truth, that environment and how much better it seemed that a lot of the jobs i was doing at the time. it wasn't until i was older that is sort of took a harder look at the realities and the dynamics onset in one
1:19 am
of the examples of that is what happened with robin. essentially, robin thicke touched your breasts and there were other women in the room and they didn't call that out either. i wonder if that was just accepted practice on that kind of set. it was that everyone was working and taking a check. i thought about that attitude and what that says about power and power dynamics that were at play on that set. tell us about halle berry because you wrote a very interesting chapter about halle berry and you are talking about being able to make herself really ugly and tell me about that. i think she's one of the most beautiful woman in the world
1:20 am
and represents this idealised figure. but she was able to be taken seriously by hollywood by winning an academy award and a lot of agents and people in the industry have said to me at about her specifically, "well, how you do that is you have to get ugly." you have to prove that you're more than just a sex object i think that such an interesting thing, that that exists in these beautiful women who really get to where they are by being sexualized and by being beautiful, then in order to have longevity or to be taken seriously, have to get themselves, make themselves ugly. did you ever feel like that? l0 i remember doing a soft paper for an audition and i had met with the producer and he said make sure you don't have any make—up on, i want is the you really rough so either the soft tape and then the note was, she went a little too far, can she make herself look a little bit prettier. so there is this really strange negotiation that
1:21 am
women in the world but nothing particularly in the film industry navigate every day. the bbc has approached robin thicke about ratajkowski's allegations. he has not responded. fans of squid game get ready to lose your marbles because a new season of the show has been given the green light! director hwang dong—hyuk has confirmed that season two of the netflix hit is on its way. the south korean drama which topped the streaming giant's tv charts in 94 countries was watched by 142 million households when it first launched in september.
1:22 am
let's get more on the announcement from beth webb, film and tvjournalist and contributing editorfor nme and empire magazine. it is great to have you on newsday. in the first instance, fans around the world will be delighted about this. tell us more about the announcement. £31 more about the announcement. of course. i mean it was inevitable, wasn't it? the biggest show on netflix to date by at least double what predecessor was offering, it was only a matter of time and of course now it has come from the word of the creator himself, so yes, it is a lot to look forward to. as a say inevitable but a huge announcement forfans, although announcement for fans, although not one announcement forfans, although not one from netflix which is
1:23 am
important to note, it did come from hwang dong—hyuk on the red carpet and netflix have actually yet to comment on the second season. 50 actually yet to comment on the second season.— second season. so do you see an hinu second season. so do you see anything untoward _ second season. so do you see anything untoward in - second season. so do you see anything untoward in that? is| anything untoward in that? is this a surprise that he has given us and yet we are still waiting for netflix to confirm? is that something that fans should be worried about? 1140. is that something that fans should be worried about? no. if an hinu should be worried about? no. if anything they — should be worried about? no. if anything they think _ should be worried about? no. if anything they think it _ should be worried about? no. if anything they think it is - should be worried about? no. if anything they think it is very - anything they think it is very emblematic of squid game. this arrived on the streaming platform with absolutely no fanfare whatsoever, it grew strongly through word of mouth and through social media, being repurposed on platforms such as tiktok, so no i think this is perfectly emblematic of the kind of show it is, of the kind of creator that hwang dong—hyuk is to just let this slip out and then netflix i'm sure are preparing something to follow shortly. preparing something to follow shortl . ~ , , , preparing something to follow shortl. ,, shortly. when this series came out, as shortly. when this series came out. as you _ shortly. when this series came out. as you say. _ shortly. when this series came out, as you say, it _ shortly. when this series came out, as you say, it was - shortly. when this series came out, as you say, it was a -
1:24 am
shortly. when this series came out, as you say, it was a sort l out, as you say, it was a sort of very well hidden secret in some respects, it was something that nobody really expected to take the world by storm the way that it has. now that we are hearing there is a second season, how is the news being received in south korea, the home market? {131 received in south korea, the home market?— received in south korea, the home market? of course, i do believe it— home market? of course, i do believe it is _ home market? of course, i do believe it is mostly _ home market? of course, i do believe it is mostly positive. i believe it is mostly positive. there are always ramifications with something that is as globally culturally significant as this. i know that a south korean broadband company was suing netflix at one point for the surge in traffic but the response has generally been very positive. i response has generally been very positive-— response has generally been very positive. i don't want you to cive very positive. i don't want you to give away _ very positive. i don't want you to give away and _ very positive. i don't want you to give away and they - very positive. i don't want you to give away and they don't i to give away and they don't know whether you can give away any of the spoilers from what we should expect out of the second season, and perhaps there are many people watching as well who haven't seen the first season, but what should we expect from this new season? sure, i'm in the one piece of information, it's very much in the planning stage at the moment, very little has been confirmed but it has been said
1:25 am
that the lead character of the first season will be back, which will mean something to fans and not very much to anyone who hasn't seen it, and there's also been speculation in the creator has said he would like to explore the story of the front man more, who was a primary nemesis in the first season as well, so maybe it takes a very different direction there.- takes a very different direction there. �* . , , direction there. beth webb, film and tv _ direction there. beth webb, film and tvjournalist, - direction there. beth webb, i film and tvjournalist, keeping us up—to—date on that latest announcement from squid game. thank you very much forjoining us on the programme. now to some truly extraordinary historic jewellery that's just sold at auction in geneva. two diamond bracelets once owned by the last queen of france, marie antoinette, sold for more than $8 million. they were bought by an anonymous telephone bidder. marie antoinette sent the jewellery away in a wooden box for safekeeping before she was guillotined during the french revolution. both bracelets were successfully smuggled out
1:26 am
of the country. that's all for now. thanks so much forjoining us, from me and the team, do stay with bbc news. hello there. it was nearly 18 degrees celsius in cheshire yesterday. temperatures which are well above where they should be for this time of year. it will be mild again for the day ahead because we've got that south—westerly wind off the atlantic, but with it some rain which is all tied and from this weather front here which is pulsating, if you like, bringing some further outbreaks of rain through the small hours and into the start of the day it will be on and off throughout the day. it is coming into high pressure and it's weakening and to the north of it, the showers have been fading back to the coast with one or two around, but with clear skies actually it is turning chilly, a touch of frost in rural areas. while further south, temperatures of 11 and 12
1:27 am
are more like where they should be during the day at this time of year. but it's misty, it's murky and some patchy fog around across southern and eastern areas and there will be some hill and coastal fog underneath our weather front which is going to bring some rain. not too heavy but really rather dank, misty and grey conditions through the day. but mild 14s and 15s, whilst it should start to break up the cloud for northern england tojoin in with northern ireland and scotland with just the odd shower and some sunshine. still a brisk wind with more showers for the north and west of scotland. and indeed here, through the evening and overnight, we'll have another band of showery rain moving southwards turning weaker but introduces a bit more cloud. so, perhaps the frost a little bit more patchy by the time we get to sunday morning. the cloud starting to break for the south because those weather fronts are rather weak and they are coming into this area of high pressure. so, we will have, i think, a few fog issues as well on thursday morning. so, once those clear away and at this time of year, both the coming morning and tomorrow morning, it will take it's time to clear and linger through the rush hour. once it does, some sunny
1:28 am
spells, some rain is gathering on that southerly wind picking up further west and you may have noticed this massive rain behind me. that is all tied in with a developing area of low pressure. here it is, there's a big question mark as to where the wettest and windiest weather will be. but this is the capability of bringing gales and quite a bit of rain with it to end the week. so, it is one we are watching, do not take this as red because we'll be fine—tuning the details, but it looks as if he will be a mild into the week because those wins coming off the atlantic, but it should be moving out of the way in time for the weekend with the weakening feature, so we will see quite a bit of dry weather and still quite a bit of cloud into the weekend. goodbye for now.
