change unimpeded in an area three times the size of spain. campaigners including prince albert of monaco argue more areas need to be protected this way. as david eads van dijk there are growing concerns that with the political climate that might not be achievable. the ross sea is not just might not be achievable. the ross sea is notjust a natural wonder but a political success story. a 35 year deal to save it from human exploitation. what is allowed here in this alien world is scientific research, a study of the food chain and the impact of climate change. in the depths of the sea this is the chief predator. ugly by name, ugly by nature, the toothfish is a critical element in this dark and icy world. there is a huge amount about the ecosystem of the ross sea
6:32 pm
we don't understand and there are threats to the ecosystem to fishing that we still don't have a handle on to understand how to manage those threats very well. there is still some fishing allowed on the plate toothfish gets a rebrand as sophisticated chilean sea bass but the quantities allowed are seen as a small price to pay as the scientific lessons learned here travel a long way. the calm of the mediterranean sea, if we are in monaco, is literally have a world away from the ross sea in the antarctic but scientists will tell you the polar regions are what they called the canaries in the coal mine. the way they are impacted by climate change will have an affect on the rest of the planet so protecting the ecosystem is important, but studying how that area is affected by climate change is critical. it does prove that it change is critical. it does prove thatitis change is critical. it does prove
6:33 pm
that it is possible in international waters to protect a very large area that hopefully will have a significant impact. are you scared about the lack of action, are you pushing for action but it is desperately slow and climate change seems to be happening from the polar regions especially, far far quicker than we ever envisaged 7 regions especially, far far quicker than we ever envisaged? that alone should be alarm signals that should resonate in all of us. innovation will be key to not only reduce our carbon footprint but also be able to protect sensitive areas around the world, terrestrial. but today's political realities suggest future deals will be harder still to negotiate, leaving scientists to hope that this region of the tactic known as the last seat for its
6:34 pm
natural state does not become the last area afforded special protection. pope francis has used the word to hinge —— rohinja, days after avoiding this name. the pope asked for forgiveness but the indifference of all of us and told the group the presence of god today is also called rohinja. our correspondent the census report. their plight has overshadowed his visit to myanmar in bangladesh and today a group of rohinja refugees met pope francis. one by one they had a chance to tell him what they had a chance to tell him what they had been through. up to now pope francis had avoided using the term, which is how these people identified themselves, , which is how these people identified themselves,, but a word that myanmar refuses to recognise but today the pope was more outspoken. at the
6:35 pm
meeting of religious leaders the pope asked for forgiveness from rohingya refugees but they have endured. it is a crisis that has overshadowed the pope's visit. regardless of the politics around the pope's buzzard, for many people from the catholic community in bangladesh it was simply a chance to see the leader of their religion in person. they are a tiny percentage of the population of this country but you couldn't tell that by looking at the crowds here. tens of thousands have come from different parts of bangladesh. and they weren't disappointed. before he said mass pope francis did a quick tour through the crowd. for some it was a moment they will remember forever. he is the first pope to visit bangladesh in more than 30 years. he is the first pope to visit bangladesh in more than 30 yearsli am bangladesh in more than 30 years.” am so bangladesh in more than 30 years.” am so happy and so blessed that i got to be here in the space. there are got to be here in the space. there a re lots of

got to be here in the space. there are lots of people so i am so lucky. ican are lots of people so i am so lucky. i can see the pub so near.” are lots of people so i am so lucky. i can see the pub so near. i was in tears when i saw him. —— the pope. i thought i was seeing jesus. i said god bless you. i am so happy to see you again. for this small community the pope's visit is a reassurance that they are part of something bigger. but for another minority it brought hope that one of the most influential leaders in the world could help them. it is now time to go to salford for sports day. hello and welcome to sportsday. this evening we are at the mill farm stadium, home of non—league fylde for the second round of the fa
6:37 pm
cup. but our top story tonight, it's the world cup, the draw has been made for the tournament next year. england have had it so easy. belgian, tunisia and panama in group g. we have been good at writing teams off and getting beaten by them so we teams off and getting beaten by them so we will make sure we are prepared for all of those games. we will be live in moscow in just a moment for all the details of the eight world cup groups. what about these non—league clubs who are hoping to get through to the prize of the third round? wiggin, the former holders are here, 2013 day won it. not so long ago. they are now top of league 1. we would
6:38 pm
look ahead to the 22nd round ties across the region. bat 22nd round ties. it is also a busy weekend in the premier league. sam allardyce reveals his ambitions for everton. keeping them up. also coming up we will have the very latest from adelaide as england look to ignite their ashes campaign under the lights in the second test. and then it is australia against england in the world cup final of rugby league. good evening. that is the view of mill farm stadium. it doesn't look like a non—league stadium but afc
6:39 pm
fylde a re like a non—league stadium but afc fylde are certainly a club on the up. this is the biggest night for them in their history. the first time they are in the second round of the fa cup. it is the first of 20 ties across the next four days tonight. they have got wigan athletic. winners in 2013. they are currently top of league 1. the prize for all those when the teams that get through is the third round. and a possible tie against a premier league club in the new year. but of course that is a bigger prize at sta ke to course that is a bigger prize at stake to be one. in 2018. that there's the world cup trophy. we had a glittering star—studded draw today in moscow and we were going to all those worst—case scenarios for england but was possibly the best case scenario? belgium, tunisia and panama in group g. that is who they have got. it could be an awful lot
6:40 pm
worse. we will get back to talking about the fa cup but now we go live to moscow and speak to our sports correspondent richard conway. england will be breathing a sigh of relief, once they? yes, welcome to the grumman state palace in the heart of the seat of russian government and you are quite right. bat kremlin state palace. the england delegation will be reading a sigh of relief but is not taking anything for granted. we will hear from her associate in a minute. it was that the diego maradona to pull the ball out of the hat and revealed that it was going to be england in group g alongside belgium, panama and tunisia. there were some smiles about that. diego maradona
6:41 pm
well—known to english football after his escapades in 1986 and the hand of god. but let's take a look at that england group in some detail and where and when they will be playing. we mentioned that they will start in volgograd against tunisia on monday the 18th ofjune, an evening kick—off. they will then travel after that to nizhny novgorod. a bit of trouble for fans and players. they will take on panama there on sunday the 24th of june. that'll be an afternoon kick—off. then they will conclude the group fixtures against belgium in cullinan grabbed on thursday the 28th of june in cullinan grabbed on thursday the 28th ofjune and gareth southgate and england will know all about that belgian team. it is stocked full of premier league players, very good players, romelu lukaku, vincent
6:42 pm
kompany, eden hazard. england will know all about them and roberto martinez. the fixture against tunisia is where england will start. gareth southgate back in 1998 played against tunisia in that game in france 98. after the draw was made his book to jonathan france 98. after the draw was made his book tojonathan pearce who started by asking him his reaction to getting tunisia once again. the first thing that went to my mind, it was a fantastic day as a player, the brilliant occasion, incredible atmosphere of our fans made. nice to be able to relive that. what sort of acai diet they? we have to find that out. we haven't done so much research on them yet. now with the opportunity. that is what great. we can really start to focus. how important is it that you have got a break, six days between that game
6:43 pm
and panama? there is a little bit of travelling and it gives us the opportunity may be for a couple of injuries if you get them to clear up. you are always grateful for such preparation timeous possible for any game. it is their first finals. people already i think them off. people already i think them off. people said costa rica wouldn't do anything. we have to make sure we are prepared for all of those games and it is fantastically exciting to be here for the draw with every other coach. it has been a great experience and really looking forward to getting on with it. gareth southgate taking nothing for granted despite the consensus that this is a favourable draw. we know roberto martinez from his time in english football, he went on to
6:44 pm
manage swansea and wigan and everton before landing the belgian job. manage swansea and wigan and everton before landing the belgianjob. this was his reaction. as they say footballers way of living, i have lived almost 21 years in the british game and england. so it is a very special draw, but it is the world cup and it is about preparation. we have a challenging draw for england. it isa have a challenging draw for england. it is a challenging group. will the longest and most demanding group in terms of travelling arrangements but i think we looking forward to what we're going to find. just time to ta ke we're going to find. just time to take a quick through the other groups. group a, russia and the hosts will take on saudi arabia in the opening game. that will have egypt and uruguay. we should see mo salah of the proposed trying to take that sparkling form into the world cup. portugal and spain in group b. france will take on australia and
6:45 pm
argentina on to the other groups now. . brazil will be hoping to avenge their humiliation in 2014. germany the defending champions. in group h. poland, senegal, colombia and japan. mouthwatering ties but england were leaving the kremlin, breathing a sigh of relief and have perhaps got the group they wanted. iamjoined by i am joined by kevin kehl band who played in 2002. we were looking at all the worst possible groups that
6:46 pm
england could have got. that is the best case scenario. i think england have got a great draw. belgium are the top five ranked team in the world but england should find that group fairly comfortable and i expect them to qualify for the last 16. now they can look at tunisia and panama. they know about the belgians. a lot of them play in the premier league. those fans can book their troubles. a lot of miles to be travelled. i think that is the problem. the supporters getting the miles between them, clocking up some mileage over the summertime. it certainly gives the english fans hope and expectancy when they go there to the world cup because the teams they are playing. i think england will qualify handily enough and then to the dax16. the fa cup now. one of your former teams wigan. they seemed to have bottomed out that the winning the fa cup four yea rs that the winning the fa cup four years ago. bottom half of the national league, afc fylde. how do
6:47 pm
you see it going. fylde are on the up you see it going. fylde are on the up and where they have come from is fantastic. wigan are flying. i expect them to get promoted. this is the perfect setting. the way that wigan played, the pitches immaculate. i expected to be a good night. fantastic setup here. more from the mill farm stadium at fylde later but it is a very busy weekend. a lot going on in australia. let's get up—to—date with all the other sports headlines. so your alarm clock call will be 4am in the morning. the first day/night test in ashes history starts in adelaide in the early hours. and england have taken the fairly unusual step of naming a 12 man squad for the second match against australia. including fast bowler craig overton alongside the 11 men who lost by ten wickets in brisbane. that's partly because moeen ali has
6:48 pm
an injury that could prevent him from bowling. andy swiss is in australia for us. here in adelaide there are much cooler temperatures now. good news for england. they know they have to win after that defeat in the first test in brisbane. since that last has been a certain amount of tension between the two teams. mainly because of the sledging ofjohnny ba i rstow because of the sledging ofjohnny bairstow during england's second innings. that was related to that meeting between johnny innings. that was related to that meeting betweenjohnny bairstow innings. that was related to that meeting between johnny bairstow and the australian opener cameron ba ncroft the australian opener cameron bancroft in a bar in prep for weeks ago where bairstow rather curiously greeted bancroft with his head. australia clearly enjoyed all the turmoil. captain steve smith was in tea rs of turmoil. captain steve smith was in tears of laughter at the press conference at the end of the first test alongside bankrupt. but
6:49 pm
england's skipperjoe root has been less tha n england's skipperjoe root has been less than impressed.” england's skipperjoe root has been less than impressed. i would like to think that steve has a good amount of humility about him and he is laughing at the scenario and comments rather than the situation of things. i think it is important that we sort of just of things. i think it is important that we sort ofjust move on. it is quite an insignificant part of what is such an important series that the cricket should be the main focal point of what we speak about. steve smith has insisted he wasn't mocking the england team when he was laughing at the press conference and he also says his team didn't overstep the mark during that first test but he also hit back at the england fast bowlerjimmy anderson over suggestions he made at the australian team were bullies.” think it is interesting coming from
6:50 pm
jimmy, calling us bullies and being sledgers. i think he is one of the biggest ledgers and the game to be perfectly honest with you. to me in particular. i remember in 2010 when i first started and wasn't any good, he was pretty happy to get stuck into me then, so interesting coming from jimmy. england did compete well for the first three days in brisbane but they know this is a match they can now barely afford to lose. so what grounds for optimism madhur? early on i spoke to bbc‘s cricket correspondentjonathan early on i spoke to bbc‘s cricket correspondent jonathan agnew. weather conditions had changed completely. given the southerly breeze and showers around, pink ball and they might test match this is a blind opportunity for in gwent. in some ways it is a fantastic chance that they didn't expect. he could come to adelaide and it is 40 celsius red—hot summer sunshine, short square boundaries australians love but this is going to be like. this really is england's opportunity
6:51 pm
and they have to take it. the australians will still ball well here as well but it even things up a bit. england do have some fitness concerns over moeen ali. a couple of his finger which has been affecting his finger which has been affecting his bowling. australia have named an unchanged 11 for this match and it isa unchanged 11 for this match and it is a match where england know they have precious little room for error. thatjust one of two big australia against england match ups down under tomorrow morning. because around 1200 miles away in brisbane and five hours later. it's the rugby league world cup final. england face the daunting task of beating the defending champions and hosts... and they'll have to do it without their injured captain sean o'loughlin. who'll miss their first final in 22 years... as dave woods reports. his absence comes as no great surprise. the captain has been struggling with a quad injury. sam burgess takes on the captain role. it is not ideal to lose shone. i am
6:52 pm
super excited. super proud to captain the team tomorrow. it is not thejob i kick quickly. i really enjoy doing it. but if i am honest not a lot changes tomorrow for me. one of saturday's key confrontations could be in the front row where england's enforcerjames graham will come face—to—face with australia's pack leader aaron woods.” come face—to—face with australia's pack leader aaron woods. i quite like watching james and play against him. he is like a hatchback. he has a lot of skill. but he is still very tough. you look up to them. they have been playing for this trophy since 1954. in the 14 addition it has been played for australia have won 11 times england when the sack they would be history in the making. that sense of history is not lost on those who will ball on the england shirt in this final. but many people
6:53 pm
get to play in a world cup final. it would be an unbelievable feeling and it is what the country needs back home. rugby league needs it as well. you are hoping all the english fans get behind us and hopefully we will get behind us and hopefully we will get it on saturday. the lats time an english side with australia was november 2000 and six. the coach then was brian noble and he believes they can rewrite the record books.” have a feeling about this group. i don't think the australian team are as good as we have seen in previous years and i think this england team has a world—class players in it. years and i think this england team has a world-class players in it. and the new captain also believes it could be england's world cup. we are excited for tomorrow night. this is a world cup final and the first time inafew a world cup final and the first time in a few years thing and have been here. the pressure is not a must. it is all australia. we have to get out there and enjoy ourselves.”
6:54 pm
is all australia. we have to get out there and enjoy ourselves. i will be back with ollie in just a moment. there and enjoy ourselves. i will be back with ollie injust a moment. a couple of debut managers. alan pa rd ew ta kes couple of debut managers. alan pa rdew takes control of west brom for the first time and also some alla rdyce for the first time and also some allardyce back in work with everton. he started today. his first game in charge at home to huddersfield. he says he didn't hesitate to take the job with the premier league strugglers. i got offered more jobs when i said i had retired than it did in my life. finally everton came along. i guess it in the end it was done within 48 hours. even being in dubai. that is it from salford for now. very warm here. a little bit
6:55 pm
chilly in fylde so back to you as you look ahead to another weekend of fa cup football. thank you. it will bea fa cup football. thank you. it will be a big night here, perhaps the biggest night. david haythornthwaite, the owner of anc fylde to go over ten years ago. a big project and would you see this would be the biggest night? sad about. the biggest night for us here. the magic of the fa cup. to have the bbc here on a friday night game which is the best night to be armed, tremendously exciting for all of us. wigan are perhaps one of those teams are you look to aspire to because they started off with humble beginnings and work their way up humble beginnings and work their way up the very top, one that could be four years ago. i said earlier in the week, dave whelan did an amazing job when he took over. i think in 95 he took over. i went to the old
6:56 pm
springfield park which was a bit of a rack of a grand, springfield park which was a bit of a rack ofa grand, an springfield park which was a bit of a rack of a grand, an old greyhound stadium. to see where they have come from. it gives inspiration. and plastic setup here. you had a lot of your own resources into it. —— impressive setup. what can you expect to night? a good honest hard performance. organised. the manager both have done some homework. we know we are up against a better team but we have one or two players that will surprise tonight. everybody is talking about danny and he is our talisman and if he gets a chance he will put that away, he is on top form. we have one or two players as well. we are not quietly confident but we fear we will give them a good tonight. you are a mass of england band, followed them home and away, you were at the euros last year and you were at the euros last year and you have with this some of the russian trouble. how excited are you
6:57 pm
at the draw as an england fan? my wife told me i can't go so i am not too excited. but i know that they will be there at some stage. i looked at the draw and i don't think it isa looked at the draw and i don't think it is a bad group. belgium, tunisia and panama, i think they would have taken that. i am not sure where they are playing. the world cup every four years you go and live in hope as an england fan, you say this will be the year and it never is, but who knows. maybe because we all think we won't win it we probably will. fylde against wigan tonight, the first of 22 ties this weekend in the fa cup second round but today's headline is all about the world cup. let's leave you with the images from moscow. it should be easy straight for england. belgium, panama and tunisia. from all of us here it is to check on all
6:58 pm
the weather. hello. after a further dramatic spell of weather for northern and eastern parts i think we will see something a little quieter as a push into the weekend. this will become quite familiar pattern. high pressure towards the west. feeding in relatively milder air that many of us have seen her plate. that is not to say we are in for a new heatwave. it will take time before we push that milder air right down. initially it is the only north—western part of northern ireland. some sunshine around the eastern side of the pennines, part of the south—east. generally speaking warned away a cloud across northern and western parts. bits of pieces of rain in the north. a scattering of showers across wales. this first thing. thunderbird and leaving a lot of you will be dry. . apart from scotland and the far north of finland. here are some day.
