2:42 pm

2:49 pm
you try some things and they succeed and sometimes they don't. _ i don't look back on it and say to myself, it was a wild idea i that people didn'tjump on it, because that is not true. - it wasn't good enough - to succeed and that is that. three, two, one... lift—off, we have lift—off! we crew felt the weight of the world on our shoulders. we knew that everyone would be looking at us, and we wanted to do the best we possibly could. the time that i was by myself,

2:52 pm
it is my biggest problem, because i have never been young and beautiful. more importantly, i will never be young and beautiful. do not make me mad! # truly scrumptious, you too are truly scrumptious # scrumptious as the breeze across the bay # when you're smiling, it's so delicious # so beguiling, you're the answer to my wishes...# # i bet you wondered how i knew
2:53 pm
# about your plans to make me blue # with some other guy you knew before # between the two of us guys, you know i love you more # it took me by surprise, i must say, when i found out yesterday # don't you know that i heard it through the grapevine? # not much longer would you be mine # baby, i heard it through through the grapevine...# you're watching bbc news from london. a short while ago, buckingham palace announced the death of his royal highness prince philip,
2:54 pm
the duke of edinburgh. i've just done what i think is my best. i can't suddendly change my way of doing things. i can't change my interests, i can't change the way i react to things, that's someone's style and that's too bad. he is someone who doesn't take easily to compliments. but he has quite simply been my strength and stay all these years. and i and his whole family, and this and many other countries, owe him a debt greater than he would ever claim or we shall ever know.

2:57 pm
hello, and merry christmas from everybody here at bbc weather. we know of course what adds a little extra meteorological magic to christmas is some snow. that is lacking from much of the uk today. for many, it is just a continuation of the rather grey and damp weather we've seen of late. but we have seen snow, and it is officially a white christmas — in shetland, parts of central and eastern scotland, into the higher parts of the pennines and yorkshire dales as well. there may still be one or two flurries out there on through this afternoon. away from some sunny spells in northern most parts of scotland, it's a mostly cloudy christmas day, and there's some quite heavy rain through parts of south—west, southern england into wales, and northern ireland turning particularly wet in armagh and down for the rest of the day. it's a strengthening east or south—easterly wind adding an extra bite to proceedings today, pardon the christmas food pun, because this is what it might say on the thermometer, but when you factor in the strength of than wind, and particularly through northern and eastern parts of the uk, look at the difference it makes. it will feel like it is at or even below freezing, whereas it is still mild
2:58 pm
in the south—west. now this rain not moving very much during daylight hours, it does march further north and east tonight into boxing day across more of wales, england, still there in northern ireland, and as it runs into cold air across northern england first, then southern and central scotland, see that rain turning to snow, particularly into the hills. this is where we're going to be seeing a frost as we start boxing day. there could be some difficult conditions on the higher routes across northern england, southern and central scotland for a time on boxing day, with the snow falling and the wind blowing it about as well. could see some snow to relatively low levels out of this for a time, but as it moves further north through scotland tomorrow, mostly in the hills we will have the snow, still the far north seeing some sunny spells. elsewhere, there will be quite a few heavy showers moving on through northern ireland, wales and england, but brightening up towards the south—west on through the afternoon, and temperatures, well, a little bit higher, but still feeling colder because of the wind. and here is a look at boxing day evening. some clearer spells down to the south and south—west, but you can see elsewhere a lot
2:59 pm
of cloud, still some showers or outbreaks of rain around. now we have had a battle between the mild and cold air for christmas weekend, beyond that, though, it is very clear it's the mild air that wins, with areas of low pressure coming in, bringing spells of wind and rain, but pushing mild air, even very mild air in places
3:00 pm
