facebook.com/NewcastleChronicle SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 2021 The Chronicle 3 News By TONY HENDERSON Heritage reporter @Hendrover THE “cathedral on the hill”- St James’ Park – has staged many a memorable match in its long history. But flickering footage of one unique game has been found by Tyneside writer Ed Waugh, whose new play on early women’s football in the North East will tour the region in March. Ed, from South Shields, came across the film of female footballers playing in the Munitionettes cup final of 1919 on the internet. The black and white footage, which is just one minute and 41 seconds in length, features the ladies of Palmers Shipyard in Jarrow playing Christopher Brown Ltd of Hartlepool on a snow-covered pitch. The accompanying caption states: “Women’s football cup game played in the snow. Munition girls’ team. This could be final of The Munitionettes’ Cup - the winners being the ladies of Palmer’s shipyard in Jarrow, who defeated Christopher Brown’s of Hartlepool 1-0 at St James’ Park in Newcastle on 22 March, 1919.” Ed, who has been researching women’s football during the First World War for the play, was able to confirm that the footage is of the 1919 cup final. The film ends with the teams being presented with their medals, Ed said: “When the government introduced conscription into the army for men, hundreds of thousands of women flooded into the munitions factories. “Around a million women became munitionettes, working long, hard, dangerous and physical 6 0 - h o u r weeks in armaments factories, and also docks, rope mills, and steel mills. “Little provision was made by the government for the injured soldiers so we saw the phenomenon of these munitionettes playing football to raise money for wartime charities that looked after maimed and blinded men, widows and orphans. “There were no leagues. Matches were regarded as friendlies. Hundreds of teams formed throughout the country and there were dozens in the North East. What distinguished our region was a cup donated by Sunderland businessman Alfred Wood.” Teams from Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, Darlington and North Yorkshire battled it put to find their champion and sides from Wearside, Tyneside and Northumberland held a knock-out to find their top side. Matches attracted thousands of spectators. The two best teams in the region would then play in the final. The 1918 Munitionettes cup was won by Blyth Spartans who defeated Bolckow Vaughan from Middlesbrough 5-0 at Ayresome Park, Middlesbrough, in front of a 22,000 crowd. Spartans centre forward Bella Reay, from Cowpen in Blyth, notched a hat trick in the final and ended the season with 133 goals in 30 matches. She was affectionately known as Wor Bella. Guesting for Blyth Spartans Ladies that day in March 1918 was Palmers star, 16-year-old Mary Lyons Mary Lyons who, a year later, led her own team to victory in the cup. There were only ever two munitionettes cup finals. Guesting for Palmers in 1919, Bella Reay scored the only goal of the game in Jarrow’s 1-0 victory over Christopher Brown Ladies. Ed said: “Our research shows there was footage of the 1918 final but we couldn’t find that. When we came across the 1919 film it was an incredible feeling. “The pitch is covered in snow. The Metrological Office confirmed it was snowing on Tyneside on the weekend of March 22. 1919. One player even gets carried off the pitch through injury, no doubt sustained because of the icy conditions.” The game was watched by a 9,000 crowd. “Sadly, Bella Reay’s only goal of the match is not recorded in the footage,” said Ed, “But what is intriguing is the good quality of football despite the atrocious conditions, and how Mary, captain of Palmers, allows Bella to lift the cup. Mary is second in line. “I can only assume this is Bella Reay Celebrating early stars of ladies’ game because Bella scored the winning goal. There must have been a strong friendship between them because they played in the two cup final teams together as well as for England and in regional representative matches.” Both Bella Reay, born in 1900, and Mary Lyons were the only two players to win two Munitionettes Cup winners’ medals. The North East-based competition ceased to exist after 1919. Ed said: “It’s an incredible, historic piece of footage from more than 100 years ago that captures the spirit of women’s football. The female footballers of today stand on the shoulders of these heroic, selfless, women from the First World War. The sad upshot is not a single statue exists to the millions of munitionettes.” The play Wor Bella premieres in Blyth Phoenix Theatre on Friday, March 25, then tours until to Saturday, April 2, when it plays the Westovian Theatre, South Shields.

4 The Chronicle SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 2021 chroniclelive.co.uk News Funds will help keep customers safe – and warm People enjoying food and drink outside bars and restaurants on Grey Street By DANIEL HOLLAND Local democracy reporter daniel.holland@reachplc.com Newcastle’s cafes and bars could get a share of £250,000 to keep outdoor seating areas open and warm during the winter months, in a bid to cut the risk of a new spike in covid-19 infections. city council bosses are set to hand over a quarter of a million pounds to help up to 150 businesses improve their outdoor spaces or open new ones. Many of tyneside’s hospitality businesses were forced to turn to new al fresco areas in order to keep operating during lockdown restrictions and the changes proved a huge hit in many cases, with scenes of people lining the sun-drenched pavements of Grey street or the Bigg Market prompting comparisons to a bustling european capital. and while the cold weather has now set in, local authority bosses want to stop people from packing inside bars and pubs through the winter and thereby increasing the risk of covid spreading. the council said that grants of up to £2,000, to be administered by the Ne1 business improvement district company, will provide funding for new tables, chairs, heaters, parasols, lights, and planting. the number of businesses with pavement licences in Newcastle has already jumped from 59 before covid hit to more than 150 now, which the council said was the third highest number of any area outside london. coun Ged Bell, the council’s cabinet businesses could get cash for outside seating member for development, neighbourhoods and transport, said: “Newcastle’s pavement cafes have been a real success story at what has been an incredibly difficult time for our city’s much loved hospitality trade. “we, with Ne1, supported a number of businesses during the pandemic with grants to help create welcoming outside spaces, which thousands of people have subsequently enjoyed. “However, we know at that stage there wasn’t the funding available to help everyone, and that many more pubs, bars and restaurants in both the city centre and our neighbourhoods could benefit, particularly with regards funds to make their outdoor areas usable during the colder months. “covid is still with us, and being outside, in the fresh air, reduces the risks of catching or passing the virus on, so in now being able to offer more grants – using Government ‘welcome Back’ funding – we hope to not only ensure one of our most important industries has the greatest chance of success, supporting jobs and our sense of community, but that venues can keep people as safe as possible when they socialise.”

facebook.com/NewcastleChronicle SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 2021 The Chronicle 5 News By Laura CLements, James roBinson Reporters ec.news@reachplc.com November 27 will forever be the date Tyneside woke up to the tragic news that Newcastle United club legend Gary Speed had been found dead at his home. This year marks 10 years since he died at just 42 years old – an occasion that will no doubt be marked across the country but one which his widow and adult children want to try and forget. As each November comes round, marking yet another year with Gary gone, wife Louise tries to “escape” to New York with sons ed and Tommy. It is not a day they can celebrate. That’s on Gary’s birthday which is in September, Louise said. He will be forever 42. She found Gary in the garage of their home in Cheshire having hanged himself just hours after he had appeared on national television, seemingly in good spirits. on the instructions of the emergency services she walked in and cut him down. No-one can put their finger on why – least of all Gary’s parents Carol and roger Speed, as they told WalesOnline. A decade on, roger has dementia and Carol is barely sleeping in the run-up to the day. She can’t wait for the week in the lead up to be over. “It keeps coming back,” she said. “It’s always at the front of my mind. It’s just horrible. We just miss him.” They don’t have any plans to mark the date but will raise a glass to their son’s memory – a sign that they are “extremely proud” of a man who is still revered and talked about in football. “The fact that people are still talking about him 10 years on, we are very proud of that,” said Carole. “He was a good lad.” She added: “one day he was there and the next he was gone and I’ve got to live with that. It’s such a shame Newcastle United legend Gary Speed died 10 years ago today and such a waste of his life.” His death showed that it could happen to anyone. A coroner gave a narrative conclusion at the inquest into his death saying that while Gary had hanged himself he couldn’t be certain it was intentional. “I only wish I knew what happened that night,” Carol added. “I’ve never been told what happened. As far as we were concerned everything was fine – he was always smiling and everything was oK.” Perhaps the most striking thing about this 10-year anniversary is how the sense of profound loss has barely diminished. If anything it seems to have grown stronger with each passing year. The heartbreaking loss was described by Louise in her 2018 book, Gary Speed Unspoken, in which she said she wished there was an operation “which could take your memory out and obliterate it from my mind”. She wrote: “everyone asks me why he did it but I have no answers. And that’s why I will never have any closure.” The sentiment was echoed by Carol in 2018 when she told The mirror: “If you don’t know the reason it happened you are never at peace. We didn’t know there was anything wrong with Gary. You never recover. Never.” but nothing was more powerful than the image of two young lads standing shoulder-to-shoulder with Newcastle club legend remembered 10 years on from his tragic death their father’s former team-mates and players at a Gary Speed memorial match against Costa rica a year later. ed and Tommy Speed, who both went to the US to study at university, were 14 and 13 at the time of their dad’s death. In their young faces was a calm and steely focus for which their dad was so well known. It wouldn’t be until 2020 they revealed exactly what happened that night. Talking to bbC presenter Dan Walker for his book, remarkable People, ed said: “I remember it vividly. mum and Dad went out for the night and me and Tommy had a few friends over. As they left Dad reminded us to make sure we were in bed by midnight and that was it. “The next morning I was woken up by mum screaming for me or just screaming – I can’t quite remember. She was outside and she had seen dad through the window of the garage. I ran downstairs and she was struggling to breathe and talk. She told me not to look in the garage but... It still haunts me what I saw, Dad suffering like that.” Today marks two things: an anniversary of the death of a great sporting icon but also a sombre reminder to talk. Ten years on Gary’s presence in football is no less diminished and he will be in many hearts this weekend. ■Samaritans can be contacted in the UK and Ireland on 116 123 or by emailing jo@samaritans.org That Black Friday feeling!

6 The Chronicle SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 2021 chroniclelive.co.uk News Driver who killed friend branded an ‘evil coward’ by partner By ROB KENNEDY Reporter rob.kennedy@reachplc.com @ChronicleCourt A speeding driver who killed his friend after losing control of his car and smashing into a tree before fleeing the scene has been branded an “evil coward” as he was jailed. Lee Owens was doing twice the speed limit when he caused the death of dadof-two Dean Fearon on a Sunday afternoon in Washington earlier this year. By the time police caught up with Owens, he had been drinking heavily and so it was not possible to determine if and by how much he was over the drink drive limit at the time of the fatal accident. As he was locked up for five years and four months at Newcastle Crown Court, Dean’s mum, sister and partner told of their devastation. Dean’s partner, Leanne Kay, said: “A long line of loved ones from my household to many more are all absolutely torn apart. Mine and my little girls’ lives will never be the same again. “We’re struggling every day to keep our heads up, with daily tasks and life itself beyond repair. “A locket of his picture and an urn around my neck, of my man’s body. The body that’s meant to be here holding us three little ladies. “Pictures and poems don’t replace the pain or devastation. Teddies called he smashed into a tree aFTER LOSING CONTROL OF HIS CAR ‘Daddy’ don’t replace him.” Of Owens, she added: “I’m really angry and upset he left the scene. He didn’t even call an ambulance. “He is a coward and evil, I don’t know how anyone could do this to another human being.” Mum Michelle Fearon said: “Lee Owens has no remorse for what he has done. Why did he leave the scene, leaving Dean in the car to die the way he did? “I will never have those answers. My life will never go back to normal.” Dean’s sister, Jasmine Fearon, said Dean was like a father figure to her and a brilliant dad and she feels sad when she sees his children. She added that she told Dean, from Washington, as he lay terribly injured in hospital, that the children would be ok as they have her and their mum. “At this point a tear dropped from the corner of his eye, he could clearly hear it,” she told the court.

facebook.com/NewcastleChronicle SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 2021 The Chronicle 7 Christmas events called off due to storms FESTIVE events across the North East were forced to be cancelled last night as Storm Arwen swept across he region. The opening night of ‘ Christmas at Gibside’, a festive light trail that was set to take over the grounds of the Gateshead National Trust property, was scrapped due to “adverse weather”. Meanwhile, the Winter Wonderland, at Newcastle Racecourse, was closed yesterday, with today’s opening left under review. The planned Christmas lights switch-ons in Jarrow and Seaham were also been called off. It came as a red ‘risk to life’ weather warning was put in place across part of the North East with Storm Arwen expected to bring “exceptionally strong” winds. In an email, those with tickets to the Gibside festive light show were told that organisers would be in touch shortly with the options available. Meanwhile, the town council in Seaham, County Durham, said it had to cancel its Christmas lights switch-on and parade, as high winds mean “flying debris and other high risks are likely and could lead to injuries or danger to life”. The Met Office warned that the winds would be accompanied by very cold temperatures. Lee Owens “Lee Owens should have been able to see how he left Dean and how he destroyed our family.” Prosecutor Gavin Doig, said it was around 4.35pm on Sunday June 20 that Owens was driving his Ford Mondeo on Sulgrave Road, Washington, with Dean in the passenger seat wearing a seat belt. As he took a sweeping right hand bend on the 30mph road, he lost control, mounted a grass verge and hit a tree. An investigation showed he was doing between 58mph and 66mph when he left the road and there were no defects in the car or the road and it was a fine, dry day. One witness had heard the car tyres screeching as it sped round the bend and heard the loud noise of the crash. He approached the car afterwards and saw Dean was unconscious and had a significant head injury. His injuries were unsurvivable and he died two days later. Owens, who smelled of alcohol, got out, paced around, was heard to say “What have I done” and began to cry. But he then fled the scene. He attended Dean’s partner’s home and when she asked where he was, Owens told her “In the car, crashed, Sulgrave”. By the time police arrested him around 7pm, he was drunk. Owens accepted he had consumed some alcohol before the crash but due to the delay in arresting him and the fact he’d drunk more after the collision, it was not possible to say if he was over the limit at the time. There was also cocaine in his system but below the drug driving limit. The 35-year-old, of Warwick Court, Gateshead, who has 23 previous convictions, including for drink driving and assaults, pleaded guilty to causing death by dangerous driving and was Dean Fearon jailed for 64 months and banned from driving for 44 months. Judge Christopher Prince said no sentence could reflect the suffering caused by the “tragic loss of such a clearly deeply-loved man”. He added that any driver who heard the statements of Dean’s family would hesitate before driving at speed. Nick Lane, defending, said Owens has “deep remorse for the consequences of his actions” and regrets his behaviour. PC Kevin Paskin, of Northumbria Police’s Motor Patrols department, said: “Our thoughts go out to Dean’s family and friends - he had everything to live for and has been cruelly taken away from them. “This is another sobering reminder of the irreversible consequences that speeding and driving dangerously can have. “Owens proved himself to be a danger when behind the wheel and his decision that afternoon has destroyed several lives.”

Police officers received a report of a collision involving a car and a pedestrian on Old Durham Road near to the junction with Carr Hill Road shortly after 10pm on Thursday. Emergency services attended but a female pedestrian, aged in her 50s, was confirmed as deceased at the scene. Her next of kin have been notified and specialist family liaison officers are offering them support. An investigation has been launched and officers have confirmed that a 24-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving. He remains in police custody. The road was closed for a number of hours after the incident. Sergeant Steve Armstrong, of Northumbria Police’s Motor Patrols department, has appealed for anybody with any information to contact police via the ‘Tell Us Something’ page of their website or by calling 101 quoting log NP-20211125-0993. ‘No choice’ but to act by SAM VOLPe Reporter sam.volpe@reachplc.com with a new, potentially more dangerous, Covid-19 variant identified, public health bosses around the region have warned the virus remains “very prevalent” and urged people to get their vaccines and follow the latest guidance to stop the spread. though the experts think it’s unlikely that a return to restrictions will be announced any time soon, they’ve said it’s vital to do what we can to take the pressure off the NhS and avoid giving the Government “no choice” but to act. Christmas is now less than a month away and though the variant identified in southern Africa has not yet been found in the UK, Newcastle’s Director of Public health Prof Eugene Milne said “while we learn more about” new mutations of Covid-19, it is important for people to follow advice known to limit its spread. Prof Milne said he was “hopeful” reduced rates would continue in our public are urged to help stop spread of new variant area and Christmas would be unaf- fected. Prof Milne said: “the threat of new and emerging variants has been there since the onset of the pandemic, and we are continuing to see that with the emergence of the subvariant of Delta (known as AY.4.2 or VUi-21OCt-01) – which now com- prises a significant number of UK cases – and more recently in South Africa, B.1.1.529, not yet reported here but which has prompted changes to international travel. “the reality is new variants could emerge at any time, and while we learn more about them, it is important that people continue to follow all the measures that are proven to be effective at minimising transmission against all strains of the virus.” the public health boss said so far, vaccines had worked “very well” against known variants, and said it was likely they would offer “some protection” against those newlyidentified – though he added: “we can’t know how much until we know more about each emerging type. My very strong advice is to be vaccinated and have your booster.” Prof Milne also emphasised that - in addition to vaccines – “critical” Alice Wiseman and Prof Eugene Milne Alice Wiseman and Prof Eugene Milne are urging people to follow the advice ways to prevent Covid-19 rates rising remained wearing face masks, hand washing, social distancing, ventilation and getting tested regularly. “it may be tiresome for people to repeatedly hear this but these continue to be effective control measures and are exactly the same steps, alongside vaccination, i would encourage people to practice judiciously during the festive period when there is increased mixing of people,” he said. “Practice caution in public places and at work, and test regularly so that if you pick up the virus you don’t then give it to others. “i know that at Christmas many will be with loved ones and will not distance or wear masks, so make sure to reduce risk of catching or transmitting the virus wherever you can. these measures limit spread of disease and, ultimately, save lives.” his Gateshead Council counterpart Alice wiseman concurred, say- ing: “with a combination of us all taking sensible precautions, getting our vaccinations and reduced mixing due to schools closing for halfterm, we did see a small reduction in Covid-19 cases across Gateshead at the end of October. “Unfortunately, cases have started to rise again in recent weeks.” She said it was “very difficult to predict” the next phase of the pandemic, but added that she “hopeful” that the vaccine booster programme would reduce the risk of a rise in infections mirroring that is occurring in some European countries. Also urging people to get jabbed, she said: “Providing we all continue to adopt a cautious approach; we can stop things from escalating once again.” Ms wiseman added: “ the success of the vaccine programme has meant hospitalisation rates have fallen significantly since the beginning of the pandemic, however, with a rise in seasonal infections, and the impact of the backlog in primary and secondary care NhS services, capacity in our GPs’ and hospital remains a serious challenge.” ■‘Possible’ Covid variant is in UK already says expert: Page 12 Weather Around the Country Today’s Weather Four-Day Outlook Birmingham Bristol Cardiff Carlisle Exeter Gloucester Leeds Liverpool London Manchester Norwich Nottingham Plymouth Swansea Around the World Amsterdam Beijing Corfu Majorca Mexico City Moscow New Delhi New York Paris Rio Rome Sydney Tokyo Saturday Sunday °C °F °C °F snow 3 37 sunny 2 36 cloudy 5 41 sunny 5 41 sunny 5 41 sunny 6 43 sunny 3 37 sunny 3 37 pcloudy 6 43 sunny 6 43 cloudy 4 39 sunny 5 41 sleet 3 37 sunny 3 37 cloudy 4 39 sunny 5 41 rain 5 41 pcloudy 4 39 cloudy 3 37 sunny 3 37 rain 7 45 showers 6 43 rain 4 39 sunny 3 37 sunny 6 43 pcloudy 7 45 sunny 5 41 sunny 6 43 Saturday Sunday °C °F °C °F rain 5 41 rain 6 42 sunny 9 48 overcast 10 50 rain 17 62 rain 17 62 rain 14 58 overcast 11 52 pcloudy 22 72 sunny 22 72 cloudy 2 36 rain 4 39 sunny 26 79 sunny 26 79 snow -2 29 snow 0 32 rain 6 42 rain 6 42 overcast 31 88 rain 27 80 rain 15 59 rain 13 55 rain 17 62 rain 18 64 sunny 13 55 sunny 13 56 Skies will be mostly cloudy to cloudy today with scattered rain and sleet.

facebook.com/NewcastleChronicle SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 2021 The Chronicle 9 By JAMES ROBINSON Reporter james.robinson@reachplc.com Campaigners fighting plans to merge their village’s middle school are celebrating after the local community council refused to support the proposals. northumberland County Council are currently in the middle of a consultation on plans to merge seaton sluice middle school with Whytrig middle school in nearby seaton Delaval. at Wednesday’s meeting of seaton Valley Community Council, members refused to support the plans for the merger after hearing arguments from parents opposed to the plan. Councillors heard from Vicki Bester, who set out the arguments of the 500-strong campaign group. reacting to the council’s decision, Vicki said: “i outlined our concerns which include that we have a school which is very popular and has a ‘good’ Ofsted rating. There is simply no justification for it to be closed. “i have spoken to hundreds of parents and not one is in favour of the proposal from seaton Valley Federation who govern the school as well as the middle school and high school in seaton Delaval. “shiny new classrooms do not improve teaching standards and with some modest investment there is no reason why seaton sluice middle school cannot continue to provide an excellent education for children from the village, Hartley, seghill and parts of Blyth for decades to come. “i was very pleased that the councillors listened and unanimously agreed that their preferred position is investment in seaton sluice middle school and the lack of clarity regarding the new school’s location in seaton Delaval meant the merger could not be supported.” Under the plans, the pupils of both seaton sluice middle school and Whytrig middle school in nearby seaton Delaval would be housed in a new school in planned new buildings shared with astley High school on the same site. all three northumberland schools are part of the seaton Valley Federation of schools. seghill with seaton Delaval councillor eve Chicken argued strongly against the merger, and explained what she thought the impact would be on seaton Delaval. Coun Chicken said: “in my view, the parish Council have come to the right conclusion for seaton Valley. “What must now happen is a discussion on how the £30m plus of investment that the county council has in place for schools in our area is spent.” News School won’t be merged – council Parents, Samantha Tench, Victoria Bester and grandparent Eleanor Dunlop with children (current and future pupils) Joseph, Finlay and Betsy Tench, Harry Howitt, Jake Gomm, Thomas Howitt, Olivia Dunlop and Halle Gom outside Seaton Sluice Middle School, which is threatened with closure Only £1.16 per can!

By JAMES ROBINSON Reporter james.robinson@reachplc.com A one-month-old baby girl is facing a desperate race against time to find a new heart. Little baby Aria Sutherst was born on October 18, but shortly after birth she showed signs of being extremely unwell and was rushed into intensive care at the Royal Victoria Infirmary. Doctors suspected she was suffering from heart failure, and she was transferred to the Freeman Hospital and placed on life support. Medics are still unsure as to what exactly what is wrong with the Wallsend infant – but they fear she has just weeks to live unless a donor can be found. The youngster has suffered a number of cardiac arrests in her short life and medics have decided she desperately needs a heart transplant. Aria’s mum, Naomi Farrell, said: “We were lucky she got to the Freeman when she did, as not long after arriving she had another setback and would have died if it wasn’t for the staff in ICU who then managed to save her life, not once, but twice since she has been in their care. “She was put on the ECMO machine after having a cardiac arrest minutes after arriving at the Freeman Hospital. It is a life support machine that does all the work for your heart and lungs. “Doctors came to a conclusion that she had a heart attack due to blood clotting, but they didn’t know exactly what caused this or if it definitely is the case. “She is currently waiting for a heart transplant. She hasn’t got very long to live. “She can only be on the life support machine for two or three weeks. Unless she gets a heart after that, they will just make her very comfortable. “Unless she gets a heart in the next two weeks, there is nothing they can do.” Other options that would normally be available, such as helping Aria’s heart mechanically, are not viable due to her tiny size. Naomi, 30, added: “She’s so small and hasn’t been able to keep anything down. There’s no other options unless she puts weight on. She’s only just over a month old. “I had no problems through the pregnancy. The doctors don’t know what’s wrong with her.” Naomi and her husband, Ben Sutherst, have been warned to expect the worst as it is extremely difficult to find a donor. She has bravely chosen to speak out in the hope someone will read their story who is able to help. Naomi continued: “A transplant isn’t likely. They haven’t had any hearts. There’s not many people who are willing to donate hearts. I just want to get the word out. It has worked for some people, but Aria’s time is very limited. They didn’t even know she needed a heart transplant until last week.” Naomi’s close friend, Alex Stembridge, has set up a GoFundMe page in order to help the family if any other options come up. The page reads: “No parent should have to worry about bills or mortgage or food shopping or have to choose between working or spending time with their little one who may not be here tomorrow. Other options are being looked into which may involve travel and other financial implications and I know that any donation no matter how small would be greatly appreciated.”

More protesters face jail More members of climate activists insulate Britain are facing jail for blocking roads, the group has said. insulate Britain said that nine people will attend the High Court on December 14. They are Dr Ben Buse, 36, ruth Jarman, 58, Biff Whipster, 54, Dr Diana Warner, 62, Paul Sheeky, 46, richard ramsden, 75, Stephen Gower, 54, Steven Pritchard, 58 and the rev Sue Parfitt, 79. Last week nine group members were jailed for between three and six months for breaching High Court injunctions. FoUr young farmers have spent their life savings on 16 acres of land to build an eco-farm that could feed more than 400 families. Middle Ground Growers have already spent £210,000 to purchase grassland in Bath but need to raise a further £95,000 to complete their farm. Co-founder Hamish evans said the group hopes the campaign will inspire a cultural change in farming and the UK’s relationship with food. “it’s a really beautiful, meaningful livelihood that stemmed from a kind of ecological grief,” the 23-year-old told the Pa news agency. “our farm is about connecting people back to the land, as part of the local food movement. it is about creating different cultural norms through different eating habits and a lifestyle that minimises the impact on the environment.” Middle Ground Growers is made up of: Mr evans; Xavier Hamon, 35; olivia rhodes, 31 and sammy elmore, 28 and a host of volunteers. Money raised will go towards helping the group complete their 16-acre site at Weston spring Farm. Donors are also offered the chance to name an orchard tree as an environmentally conscious gift this Christmas. ‘Possible’ Covid variant is in UK already – expert Dr Susan Hopkins It Is possible that a new worrying variant of coronavirus is already in the UK though current signs are reassuring, an expert at the Health security Agency (UKHsA) has said. Dr susan Hopkins, chief medical adviser of the UKHsA, said scientists are very concerned about the new variant found in south Africa, Botswana, Hong Kong and Israel, though no cases have been detected in the UK. transport secretary Grant shapps said the UK was “buying time” by adding south Africa, Botswana, Lesotho, Eswatini, Zimbabwe and Namibia to its travel red list, adding that the Government was taking a “safety-first approach”. Passengers arriving into the UK from these countries from 4am on sunday will be required to book and pay for a Governmentapproved hotel quarantine for 10 days. scientists around the globe are worried about the “horrific” number of mutations on the virus spike protein in the variant, which they fear could make it highly transmissible, more deadly and make vaccines less effective. Dr Hopkins told BBC Radio 4’s today programme that the variant had around “30 different mutations that seem relevant - that’s double what we had in Delta (variant)”. she added: “If we look at those mutations, there’s mutations that increase infectivity, mutations that evade the immune response both from vaccines and from natural immunity, mutations that cause increased transmissibility. It’s a highly complex mutation, there’s also new ones that we have never seen before.” she said the variant was the “most worrying” seen by scientists but much was as yet unknown. Asked if it was possible the variant was already in the UK, she said: “Well, it’s always possible. We have no cases identified whatsoever yet, nothing in our genome sequencing... so overall, I think the situation is reassuring in-country, but of course, people are arriving every day.” Asked on ItV’s Good Morning Britain how likely it was the variant would come to the UK, Dr Hopkins said: “I think the measures that we take on borders are there to delay, to slow, to allow us to have time to gain more information.” she added: “the fact this virus is resurging on a very immune population (in south Africa) is worrying. “Clearly vaccines will help, because they will boost the antibody responses and the t cell responses in our body, which will help us fight variants, so global vaccination is a key component of that. “But also we need to watch and wait and see as these new variants emerge. And I think this shows that we may need new vaccines in the future.” she said flu vaccines change every year and suggested the idea of having new vaccines for coronavirus was not surprising. Mr shapps said the Government acted as soon as the UK’s chief medical officers came to ministers following their meeting at around 4pm on thursday. He told the today programme: “I think all the history of coronavirus suggests that it is best to act quickly, determine the extent of the way that the virus interacts with vaccines, treatments, transmissibility and then give yourself a bit more time. “It is inevitable, of course, that it will go all around the world if it is going to do so. “so this doesn’t prevent it from coming here, but it slows things up and gives us the chance to grow the cultures and test those questions about vaccines and treatments against it.”

facebook.com/NewcastleChronicle SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 2021 The Chronicle 13 News Marching to end violence against women in city Newcastle Reclaim the Night will be happening again today By JAMES ROBINSON Reporter james.robinson@reachplc.com Protesters will be taking to the streets of Newcastle this weekend as part of an international campaign to end violence against women. the trade Union Congress (tUC) Northern is holding the annual reclaim the Night march and rally in the city centre today. reclaim the Night is held every year to mark the UN’s International Day for the elimination of Violence against Women. the tUC say violence against women and girls is one of the most widespread, persistent, and devastating human rights violations in our world today. Between 2018 and 2020, 214 women were killed by a partner or ex-partner. Between 2019 and 2020, more than 600,000 women were victims of sexual assault. research by the tUC showed that more than half of working women have experienced sexual harassment at work. Younger women and those on zero-hours contracts were even more likely to be harassed. Chair of the tUC Northern Women’s Group Pat Heron said: “this event is significant every year. But in light of the devastating murders of sarah everard and sabina Nessa, the continued importance of the #Metoo campaign, and the recent increase in domestic violence rates, it feels more urgent than ever to raise awareness of the harassment, oppression and violence experienced by thousands of women every day. I hope people from across the region will join us on saturday to stand in solidarity and call for an end to this violence once and for all. the more of us on the streets this weekend, the stronger our voice will be.” on saturday tUC Northern, trade unions, local government, communitybased groups and individuals will stand together in Newcastle City Centre to raise awareness of the unacceptable statistics around violence against women, and call for it to end. Northumbria Police and Crime Commissioner Kim McGuinness, who is speaking at the event, said: “In the wake of the horrific deaths of sarah everard, sabina Nessa and sadly many others, women’s voices are getting louder, getting stronger and we’re all coming together in Newcastle on saturday to fight for this and be heard. “Women’s safety is a top priority for me and for our region and there’s lots of work happening to improve things for women at the times and places where they feel most vulnerable – on a night out, on our transport systems and in our parks when it gets dark. We need to change attitudes to really fix this though. Women want to feel and be safe and it’s time they are.” It comes after Newcastle City Council unveiled a £300,000 plan to make people safer while on nights out in Newcastle. the march will begin at 4pm at old eldon square, before proceeding up Northumberland street to the Civic Centre, where the rally will take place. A candle-lit vigil will be held to remember all those lost to violence.

But, by November 25, 1991, in many ways the singer had already travelled a million miles from his typically working class Tyneside upbringing. Forty-year-old Gordon Sumner, the one-time milkman’s son who would help his father on his rounds, had long since left the North East behind. As singer/bass player with all-conquering rock supergroup The Police, then as a prodigious solo artist, the one-time Newcastle Big Band jazz player was now one of the most successful and wealthy music stars on the planet. Over the years, meanwhile, he’d sometimes been in the news, with his well-publicised flirtation with rain forest issues, comments about seven-hour tantric sex sessions, and luxurious multi-millionaire lifestyle having taken him far away from his humble Tyneside roots. The early 1980s had even seen Sting make unflattering comments about the North East in the press – but 30 years ago he was looking homewards once again. The Whitley Bay Ice Rink show was part of a sprawling worldwide tour in support of his 1991 album, Soul Cages. Hitting number one in the UK chart, the record’s themes focussed on the recent death of his father. Among many outstanding tracks, the song All This Time – with its strong Tyneside imagery and historical references – is one of the finest written about our part of the world. And it was that song that kicked off a strong set at the packed North Tyneside venue. The Chronicle reported: “Sting on his first major UK tour in six years powered through a show of old and new hits. “Teenagers and grannies bopped in the aisles as the superstar rocked his way through a concert with universal appeal.” There were solo-era favourites including If You Love Somebody Set Them Free, Fortress Around Your Heart, and songs from the new album. There were also The Police classics, including Roxanne, Walking On The Moon, Every Breath You Take, and an encore of Message In Bottle. However, as the Chronicle reported, “The loudest cheer of the night was not for Sting, but in memory of fellow rock idol Freddie Mercury who died from Aids at the weekend. “’This one is for Freddie,’ said Sting, and the lyrics ‘how fragile we are’ seemed poignantly appropriate.” Thirty years later, Sting – who turned 70 last month – has just released his 15th studio album called The Bridge.

Helicopter pilot dazzled by laser By GARETH CRICKMER Reporter gareth.crickmer@reachplc.com MAn shone light froM phone App As ‘prAnk’ A NorthumbriA Police helicopter pilot has told of his crash fears after being dazzled by a laser light fired by an idiotic Gateshead dad. he revealed to a court he had to turn his aircraft away when Sean o’Neil, 53, pointed the dangerous beam at his aircraft at summer twilight. o’Neil’s act of gross stupidity meant the pilot had to abort a mission to support an ongoing ground operation on monday, July 19 and return to base. in a victim statement read to magistrates in South tyneside, he said: “this is the first time that i’ve seen a laser in daylight hours. it was focused and powerful. “i had to reposition the aircraft and there could have been an obstacle strike, or a complete loss of control had my sight been impaired.” reckless forklift truck driver o’Neil, of Lecondale, Leam Lane Estate, struck at 8.40pm, the court heard. he shone the beam from his mobile phone after downloading an app he claimed he did not think would work. he now faces sentencing at Newcastle Crown Court after magistrates ruled their lower sentencing powers did not fit his crime. Prosecutor Stewart haywood said: “the charge speaks for itself in terms of what he’s done. “the captain is flying the police helicopter in the Gateshead area while on duty, and two others are onboard. At the time they were tasked with looking for a vehicle that had failed to stop. “he saw the green beam of a laser light enter the cabin from the port side. one of those on board was able to direct police officers to this defendant.” he added: “the pilot describes being dazzled and distracted by the beam and having to position the helicopter to prevent further dazzling to his vision. “the crew were able to keep their focus on the laser beam and point officers to the defendant’s address. “they located the defendant and a female in the property. he was arrested. “of note is that the action of the police helicopter had to be aborted as a result of the laser beam being shone in the pilot’s eye.” At South tyneside magistrates’ Court, dad-of-two o’Neil pleaded guilty to shining or directing a laser beam towards an aircraft. the court heard he has 19 previous convictions from 45 offences, the last in 2013. Paul hanratty, defending, said: “he would say that he acted recklessly on this occasion. he says that a friend often sends through apps on his phone that don’t work. “on this occasion, a friend sent an app to his phone. it wasn’t a laser pen that was used. “he went outside and didn’t think that the app would work. he had intended to shine it at Crow hall tower at Felling. “he accepts that he was shining it at the helicopter. it was quite apparent it was being shone from his address. “to paraphrase his words, he would say he has been an absolute fool and that it was a prank that badly backfired. “he understands how serious this is. the repercussions have been catastrophic. he wants to emphasise this wasn’t intentional, it was reckless.” o’Neil was granted unconditional bail to be sentenced at Newcastle Crown Court on Wednesday, December 22. 18+ Players must be 18 or over.

The Buchanan Committee warned of future chaos as traffic in cities Ross McWhirter We must act now on climate emergency CLIMATE change is the largest crisis facing the planet. What the Global North and much of the South do in the next decade to limit emissions will be critical to the world’s future. As lead experts tells us – we need to act now. We must work together to find solutions to cut the carbon we produce. Sadly, the recent UK government spending review barely mentioned investment measures to help address the ‘climate emergency’. The COP26 conference brought world leaders together to commit to fast tracking their actions on Climate Change. World leaders must step up by committing to the 1.5C – aligned target from the biggest emitters. A responsible national government should invest £28b every year of this decade to support Electric vehicles, safer green spaces, warmer homes with lower energy bills and create new jobs as part of a ‘green revolution’ in wind hydrogen industries and local neighbourhoods. Fairness and a ‘just transition’ should be at the heart of any responsible climate policy. Newcastle Council together with other core cities is playing a pivot role by raising awareness, declaring a ‘Climate & Ecological Emergency’ and committing the city to be Net Zero by 2030 – 20 years ahead of the UK Government’s target. The council’s Net Zero Action Plan is reviewed regularly with targets monitored. Current actions include decarbonising public buildings, increasing access to EV charging points; helping to install heat pumps and boosting energy efficiency in resident homes alongside planting thousands of new trees and creating bee-friendly verges. A number of Low Traffic Neighbourhoods are being set up with the aim of making streets safer and greener. Stephen Lambert, Ged Bell and Anya Durrant, Newcastle City Councillors for the Kenton Ward Just don’t put PM in charge of missions APPArENTLy NASA, in an experiment to try to determine whether it is possible to reduce the future chances of an asteroid passing relatively closely to the Earth actually coming into contact, is soon to deliberately cause a spacecraft to crash into a selected asteroid to see if doing this can smash it off course. We are told that this particular asteroid is not a threat to Earth; however, I would feel even safer if we could be reassured that there is no chance whatsoever that Boris Johnson could be put in charge of the mission! Craig Harrison, Morpeth Wasted money and broken promises WELL, I have kept quiet for a long time, just listening to the things being said about everything this government has been saying and doing. It would seem I am not the only person who is not impressed with the behaviour of Captain Boris Johnson as named by Dave Anderson in his letter of November 25. This government, as I have said before, is comprised of chummy chums of Johnson. I swear some of his speeches must be written by his wife. There is such a lot of codswallop in them. This government has wasted so much of taxpayer’s money it is criminal. The going back on his promises shows just how little he knew about everything when he was elected as PM. He is a con man, a liar, a very definite cheat – not just in his public life but so it would seem to be in his private life. He would appear to have no morals in either his working life or his private life. I wonder what the cost of Get everything you need to know about where you live with our app or via the InYourArea.co.uk All you have to do is enter a postcode. sending letters to all households this week to explain to us about the HS2 situation, the paper, the envelope, the ink, the postage, the man hours! Johnson has thrown away billions of pounds over and over again. Why has there not been a vote of no confidence in this laughing stock of a government and a General Election brought about? The whole lot of them should be sacked forthwith. They are supposed to be working for the people, as elected by the people, paid for by the people but they sure as hell are not doing their jobs, just trying to change rules and regulations to fit their own agenda.

Love your wife Jane. Daughters Sharon, Kerry, Karen. Sons in law Ian, Steve, Vugar KING HOWARD Grandad, you're the brightest star of all. Your smile we miss the most. Love always. Daniel, Megan, Annabel, Henry xx FRENCH MICHELLE (To a loving daughter in Heaven, Happy Birthday). Our time together was special, so were the memories we made and although you'll live in Heaven now, those memories never fade. I bow my head in silence and remember my daughter with love and I know that you are up there watching from above. Every day's a struggle and nothing feels the same and my heart breaks a little more every time I hear your name. You'll always be remembered and time may heal my heart, but a piece of me is missing since the day we had to part. If Heaven is for Angels then I know that's where you'll be and I know you will be waiting when Heaven calls for me.

CAPTAIN BECHER THE MARQUIS CAPTAIN BECHER THE MARQUIS Racing Nicholls feels Monmiral is up for a Fight Paul Nicholls could not be happier with Monmiral as the unbeaten four-year-old bids to become only the fifth horse of his age to win the Betfair Fighting Fifth Hurdle at Newcastle this afternoon. Night Nurse is the most famous of the quartet to take this treasured prize at four since its inception in 1969 - the latest being Countrywide Flame in 2012. Now it is Monmiral’s chance to add his name to an elite list. He heads to the North East with a perfect record of four out of four since moving to the UK from Francois Nicolle’s stables in France. However, Nicholls knows it is difficult as horses of his age have to meet their elders on equal terms, while he has to give 7lb to last year’s winner Epatante as mares receive a sex allowance. Nicholls said: “It is a tough task for four-year-olds in their second season. They don’t get a weight allowance against older horses but he is a talented horse and he is unbeaten. “Mares get a 7lb allowance and for four-year-olds, it is a hard year for them traditionally. Only four four-year-olds have won the race. “He does not know that. We have done everything to prepare him right. “We will learn an awful lot more on Saturday especially and the more rain whiich falls the better for him.” Nicholls went on: “We did not want to go chasing this year so we are having to run in these races and the run on Saturday will tell us where we end up - whether we go Christmas Hurdle afterwards or whether we step up in trip. “Saturday is a fact-finding mission but prep wise it has gone great. He looks great and I am hopeful of a very good run. “I cannot predict he is going to go and win. We just think we have had a great preparation and we will let the horse do the talking.” Nicky Henderson has been pleased with Epatante as the 2020 Champion Hurdle winner tries to get back on track after she lost her form following her success in this race 12 months ago. He said: “Aidan Coleman schooled her on Thursday morning and she seemed to be as good as I have ever seen her, jumping-wise, which is important. That is the litmus test with her. “It is a much better race this year than last. For a start, Sceau Royal is in much better form this year than last and I thought he was very impressive at Wincanton. “Paul Nicholls’ horse Monmiral could be anything and Silver Streak beat us at Kempton and did not get far in the race last year. “We don’t know where we are with that one so it is a very competitive race.”

CAPTAIN BECHER THE MARQUIS CAPTAIN BECHER THE MARQUIS Racing / Rugby Union Fresh from helping England defeat world champions South Africa last weekend, Jamie Blamire is back into club mode as Newcastle Falcons prepare to host Worcester Warriors tonight. The Cumbrian hooker started in last Saturday’s 27-26 victory over the Springboks, playing the first hour of the Twickenham triumph before heading back to the North East. The academy graduate, who came through the Falcons’ ACE programme at Gosforth Academy, said: “As much as I enjoyed the time with England, it is great being back with Newcastle. “It’s great to catch up with everyone again and nice to be able to go home at the end of each day.” Taking up a position on the bench for tonight’s 6pm kick-off - the match was scheduled for last night but was called off due to bad weather - the man who has scored six tries in five tests for England said: “Worcester is a really important game for us. “We have prepared well and hopefully we can do a job on them. “In terms of the selection I will just keep focusing on my own performance and let the coaches worry about picking the team. “We have huge belief in the squad and in winning at Exeter in our last league game the boys have shown what they are about. “We have quality in every position, and I really feel like top six is definitely achievable.” Reflecting on how far he has come as a player in a short space of time, the Workington native added: “I have not changed as a person but as a player being with England will have helped me get better. “England train and play in a different way to Newcastle and it is good to have an exposure to both. “There is more kicking with England than with the Falcons and it is just about getting used to that.” Blamire so happy to be back in fold The Falcons’ Jamie Blamire in action for England

30 The Chronicle SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 2021 chroniclelive.co.uk Basketball: Newcastle Eagles 77 Sheffield Sharks 86 Bunten cranks up the pressure as he bids to tame London’s Lions Brandon Peel in action for Newcastle Eagles against Sheffield Sharks last night. Picture: ABBIE ORWIN By simon rushworth Newcastle Eagles tackle powerhouse WBBL franchise London tonight (7.00) bidding to become the first British team to inflict defeat on the Lions this season. The two fierce rivals lock horns for the first time since May’s WBBL play-off final when Mark Clark’s side prevented a fairytale finish to Newcastle’s campaign. Buoyant London bring a 5-0 Championship record to the Vertu Motors Arena just seven days after securing their place in the WBBL Cup final in emphatic fashion. Eagles’ playcaller Chris Bunten said: “Let’s face it — the pressure is on the Lions. “Nobody outside of Newcastle expects us to win this game so it is a free hit from our point of view. “I am looking for my players to turn the game into a real dogfight and we will see what happens. “I will accept a few mistakes and if London suddenly hit a load of shots from beyond the arc then so be it. “I have challenged my players to make life as difficult as possible for London. “We have to forget about the big names and the big reputations and focus on our own performance. “Let’s go out there and compete with the best team in the country and one of the best women’s teams this league has ever seen.” The homecourt Eagles have it all to do against a London roster boasting many of the biggest names in British basketball. However, Newcastle have won three league games on the bounce and face a Lions side soundly beaten in Wednesday’s EuroCup clash in the Czech Republic. Bunten added: “I have such a high opinion of my own players I hold them to a very high standard every week. “As a result I always tend to focus on what they could be doing better. “Take last weekend at Nottingham. It was a fantastic win but it was a victory tinged with frustration because we almost threw it away. “I am thinking about our poor ball management at the end of the game when we have actually won our third match in a row. “We are making progress and improving our performances week on week. “There is still a long way to go but we have a chance against London.” The Lions arrive on Tyneside on the back of a 68-41 loss to Zabiny Brno in their latest EuroCup group game. However, the Londoners destroyed WBBL rivals Sheffield Hatters in a one-sided cup semi-final last weekend. That comprehensive win earned both Shanice Beckford-Norton and Jo Leedham-Warner places in the latest WBBL All-Star five. It was GB star Beckford-Norton who ran the show in last summer’s WBBL play-off final as Newcastle’s post-season charge came to a halt. Bunten admitted the Lions boast an embarrassment of riches thanks to the ongoing investment of the club’s ambitious owners. He said: “We cannot really worry about who might or might not be playing because whoever starts this weekend will be a quality player. “I prefer to look at it as an opportunity for my young British players to test themselves against the very best. “Can Chloe Gaynor and Anna Popovic control the paint? “How much of an impact can Ebony Horton, Jess Eadsforth-Yates and Abby Lowe make at the offensive end? “Can we make their players work hard for every possession and every shot? “That is what I will be looking at for 40 minutes and we want to walk off the court knowing London have been in a game.” Head coach Chris Bunten gives his Eagles players instructions Sharks bite as Eagles suffer dispiriting loss AS Storm Arwen raged across the North East last night, Newcastle Eagles’ fans were desperately hoping for the wind of change. A near fully-fit roster and back-toback wins meant a familiar air of optimism filled a sold-out Vertu Motors Arena prior to tip-off. Two hours later and another blowout defeat by fierce rivals Sheffield Sharks only served to dampen the spirits of a frustrated home support. That Atiba Lyons’ men controlled the game from tip to buzzer will be of serious concern to Newcastle head coach Ian MacLeod and his coaching staff. In normal circumstances Newcastle need no incentive when it comes to battling arch-rivals Sheffield for valuable BBL points. Yet surely the sight of Rodney Glasgow Jr donning a Sharks vest must have given the men in black extra motivation? The US guard chose to ditch Tyneside for Iceland in the summer of 2020 following a Covid-interrupted campaign with the Eagles. It is understood the well-travelled British Virgin Islander had harboured hopes of a return to the North East this season - and a chance to make amends. By simon rushworth However, the Eagles’ move for Brandon Peel meant Glasgow Jr headed to South Yorkshire - setting up last night’s potentially tense match-up. Peel was named in the starting five for the first time and although he opened his account with a smoothly-taken two in the third minute the initially ragged Eagles were already playing catch up. Sheffield hit 18 points in the first four and a half minutes, shooting 88% from the floor, to force a muchneeded MacLeod time out. That sluggish start hastened the early introduction of veteran Darius Defoe, shooter Wesley Person Jr and fit-again Kyle Williams. The slick Sharks fully deserved their 29-15 lead after the opening 10 minutes. The Eagles needed to muster a spirited - and speedy - second-period response or risk Sheffield accelerating out of sight. Williams, back after a six-week lay-off with a hand injury, and skipper Rahmon Fletcher did attempt to spark a homecourt comeback. However, Glasgow Jr was being gifted far too many open looks at the other end as he coasted through his Vertu Motors Arena comeback unscathed. In spite of Peel’s lastsecond conversion under the basket, Lyons’ men were still in control as they took a six-point lead into the locker room. Had it not been for the in-form Duke Shelton things could have been far worse for nervy Newcastle. Steering clear of foul trouble and frequently finding himself in the right place at the right time, the fans’ favourite added 11 boards to his 10 first half points. However, Shelton could not maintain his momentum during period three as Sheffield restored their double-digit advantage on the back of a Glasgow Jr triple. It took some faultless free-hrow shooting from Person Jr, added to a fadeaway triple from Corey Johnson and a huge dunk from Defoe, to keep the hosts in the hunt. Disappointingly Jordan Ratinho, the outstanding player on the night, aced an unopposed three-pointer on the third-quarter buzzer to fire the Sharks eight points ahead with 10 minutes to play. Despite Defoe’s fourth-quarter charge, a lack of intensity across all four quarters allowed the Eagles’ bitter rivals to register an all too comfortable victory against last season’s double winners.

facebook.com/NewcastleChronicle SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 2021 The Chronicle 31 SAFC He is going to have an extended spell on the sidelines which is very disappointing because of the quality he brings Lee Johnson on McGeady Cats stunner as McGeady faces three months on the sidelines By James Hunter Sunderland writer james.hunter@reachplc.com @JHunterChron Aiden McGeady will be out of action for between two and three months with a knee ligament injury in a major blow to Sunderland’s promotion campaign. The Black Cats could also lose midfielder Luke O’nien for an extended spell if he is told he can no longer put off an operation on his shoulder. Winger McGeady has struggled with foot and hamstring issues this season but this latest problem occurred in Tuesday night’s 1-1 draw at Shrewsbury Town when he kicked the ground as he took a shot. Head coach Lee Johnson confirmed the 35-year-old would be sidelined until well into the new Year, saying: “Aiden had a shot and he just stubbed the ground. “He is going to have an extended spell on the sidelines which is very disappointing because of the quality he brings. “it is a Grade Two medial collateral ligament injury and he will probably out for somewhere between eight and 12 weeks.” O’nien has an ongoing problem after dislocating his shoulder in december, since when the same injury has flared up several times. He has been able to continue playing and Sunderland were hoping to postpone an operation to have the shoulder pinned until the end of the season - but it has become increasingly clear that is unlikely. O’nien is due to nsee a specialist to decide the next step but Johnson knows the chances are he will be without another key player for a period of time. it is a loss which will be keenly felt because O’nien is capable of covering several positions which has been a major plus while Sunderland have no fit full-backs. Johnson added: “Luke is having real trouble with his shoulder which keeps popping out every other day. “He has been brilliant. He could have demanded this operation six to eight weeks ago but he is an absolute warrior and has battled through. “You get a sublux where the shoulder pops out and pops back in. “When it starts to affect your daily life like holding your kids, or in a match holding off an opponent, you have to start seriously considering an operation and it is at that stage now. “We have to take the expertise and advice from the surgeon, it is as simple as that. “it will also depend on what operation dates are available, whether or not Luke is in pain, whether the surgeon says his arm is going to fall off! “All these elements will have to be considered but we will make the right decision both for the player and the club.” Johnson says Sunderland have ‘seven or eight’ injuries going into this afternoon’s game at Cambridge United but that total includes longer-term absentees such as Jordan Willis, niall Huggins, denver Hume, Lee Burge, and Cirkin, along with McGeady. Left-back Cirkin was due to have hernia surgery yesterday and Johnson expects him to be sidelined for between four and seven weeks. He said: “it is a double hernia and it depends what they the surgeons do - they will either sew it or they will put in a mesh by keyhole. “depending which of those they do, it will alter the recovery process. dennis is a young player so it will take a little bit longer to make sure he is absolutely right.” Johnson: I can cope with pressure of this job Lee Johnson says the scrutiny he is under is no different to that any manager faces - and insists he is ‘resilient’ and capable of dealing with the pressure of managing a club of Sunderland’s size. The Black Cats’ recent poor run - which has seen them win just one of their last five league games and crash out of the FA Cup at the first hurdle to League Two opposition - has led to frustration among fans fearful the club is failing to build on its excellent start to the season and it could cost them promotion yet again. Johnson’s previous jobs at Oldham, Barnsley, and Bristol City all came with pressure and he admitted: “It is a tough job football management but a great job. “When you come to club like Sunderland you expect scenarios like this every now and again if you don’t win for two games or you have a bad little spell. “However, I am quite resilient and I believe I am worthy and capable of handling a club this size. “It is a great club, a club I am very privileged to be at and with that privilege comes the pressure. “The consistency is there to try to improve the fortunes of the club and as long as I am here I will work my absolute hardest to do that.” We buy any house!

32 The Chronicle SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 2021 chroniclelive.co.uk SUPERMAC Shooting from the lip IT was Newcastle’s first 90 minutes under the guidance of Eddie Howe - even if he was absent due to Covid. It completely changed my mind on so many long-held beliefs. I have been the sternest of critics when it comes to Joelinton and Jonjo Shelvey but I have to say both were excellent against Brentford. Equally, I have defended Karl Darlow because I have felt he was badly treated in the past. For example. the way he found out through the papers not from the manager that he was to be dropped last season. However the lad is shot, his blunder on the first goal com- pletely changed the course of the match and he needs to be pulled Howe about this? I am praising Jonjo and Jo! out of the team at Arsenal today for his own good. Joelinton was a revelation . . . enthusiastic, aggressive, direct, with a willingness to get into the penalty area. Plus he crowned it all with a goal, striking the ball beautifully when he more often than not in the past scuffed his finish. As for Shelvey, he actually sprinted to close the opposition down rather than sitting 12 yards off as he normally does. I put it down to the Howe influence. They were dif- ferent players and contributed so much to United’s offensive display. However, it is no good doing it just once. This must be the standard for the rest of the season if they wish to redeem themselves in the eyes of supporters. As for Darlow, he has looked progressively shaky. It is time for Martin Dubravka to come back. I don’t know if Darlow is making the three central defenders jittery or if they are making the goalkeeper panic but collectively United are a shambles at the back. It really is amateurish. Ivan Toney ripped them apart. He looks a proper centre-forward and whoever at SJP decided he would not make it at the top level and let him go ought to hang their head in shame. Jamaal Lascelles typifies everything wrong at the heart of the defence. He jumped magnificently to head United ahead, rising above everyone in the penalty area but never once jumped with such conviction when defending in his own box. Why? As for Fabian Schar and Ciaran Clark, they are walking mistakes yet both are internationals for goodness sake. Schar had just helped Switzerland qualify for the World Cup finals, pushing Italy into the uncer- tainty of the play-offs, yet he returned not full of confidence but making basic mistakes like being on the wrong side of opponents. It really is baffling. Unless Howe can find an answer at the back United will continue to struggle. When you have to score three to get just a point at home against a team which had lost its previous four games then the writing is there for all to see. I feel sorry for United’s new boss because the job is difficult enough without having to go into isolation. I have faith in him long-term, it is just that time right now is not on his side. What is coming up after Arsenal will go a long way to deciding United’s fate. Norwich and Burnley at home inside a week will be either the making of the team or a killer. Nothing short of six points will do having taken only one against Brentford. This is a pressure cooker and Newcastle have to hang in there. Joelinton and Jonjo Shelvey impressed Supermac against Brentford - two players he is usually critical of. On the other hand, Karl Darlow, who he usually defends, did not I put it down to the Howe influence. They were different players and contributed so much to United’s offensive display Supermac

facebook.com/NewcastleChronicle SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 2021 The Chronicle 33 By Lee Ryder Chief Newcastle writer lee.ryder@reachplc.com @lee_ryder NEWCASTLE’s new coaching staff have been looking to do more than merely remedy the team’s defensive frailties, even ahead of their trip to Arsenal today. The Magpies conceded three goals last weekend at home to Brentford and are yet to keep a single clean sheet this season, with errors in the backline a regular occurrence. Bottom of the table and yet to win a competitive game this season, Eddie Howe and his backroom team have a huge job to turn Newcastle around and the prospect of stopping Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and co is a daunting one. However, the new head coach has been keen to transform the way United play, looking to change the players’ mindset after years of defensive play under Rafa Benitez and Steve Bruce. Though Howe has been in a hotel room all week battling Covid, he and his coaches have been working hard to overhaul the style of play. Yesterday Tindall reiterated the new coaching team will not look to defend – and make sure the defence is alright – at all costs. He said: “We work on different aspects of our game on the training ground. “What we don’t want to do is prioritise defending and fully focus on that and then lose sight of our attacking play. “We know we have to be better as a team defensively – we know that – but when we arrived here we knew we also had to be better from an attacking perspective as a team. “It is all about getting that balance right, about doing the work on the training ground. “Some things are going to take a little bit longer than others. “There is no short-term fix in football but what you can do is work extremely hard every single day to try and become the best you can be.” Magpies’ youngster Elliot Anderson What we don’t want to do is prioritise defending and fully focus on that and then lose sight of our attacking play United defender Federico Fernandez battles with Wolves forward Hee Chan Hwang Coaches bid to change Toon’s defensive play Finding the right combination to play along the backline has been tricky and various players have been used out of position in an effort to find a winning formula. One player who might now get more of a lookin under Howe and Tindall is former Argentina centre-back Federico Fernandez. The veteran has not even made Anderson injured in abandoned reserves game Newcastle United’s Under-23 clash with Aston Villa lasted just 28 minutes before being abandoned as Storm Arwen caused chaos. With the temperature plummeting, the young Magpies had already lost star man Elliot Anderson to an injury before Villa went ahead on 22 minutes through Cameron Archer. Magpies’ goalkeeper Dan Langley was unable to hold on to a shot and Archer followed up to score for the the bench since Steve Bruce’s final game in charge against Spurs last month, despite United having the luxury of naming nine substitutes. Graeme Jones, who had a brief stint as interim boss, previously admitted he ‘did not see any value’ in putting Fernandez on the bench because the 32-year-old needed to start. Howe opted not to name a recognised centre-back among the substitutes against Brentford last time out – Emil Krafth and Isaac Hayden instead provided cover – but Tindall is convinced Fernandez will eventually be given his chance. visitors, bagging what proved to be the only goal of the game. I was blatantly obvious the game was in danger and the referee called both captains to the sideline to discuss the night’s bleak prospects with the coaching teams. Moments later the final whistle was sounded and the PA announcer confirmed to the hardcore band of supporters the game had been abandoned at Whitley Park. He said: “Fede is in contention just like the rest of the squad. “Everyone is always in contention for every game. “The manager will always pick a team he believes is the best team to win the game. “I can only speak on how Fede’s been since we have been here. He has trained extremely well. “He is an outstanding professional, a fantastic guy and a real leader within the group. “Every one of these players is going to be called upon at some point. As and when that happens? Who knows.” Newcastle had been looking to build on the 3-1 win at Nottingham Forest in midweek with Anderson eager to catch the eye after a hat-trick. However, a game which had already been brought forward because of Villa’s Papa John’s Trophy game at Charlton Athletic next week ended in chaotic fashion as the second-city side faced a long journey home in awful conditions. NUFC Arteta wary of cash-rich Mags future Mikel Arteta has admitted Newcastle’s riches will force the rest of the Premier League to react to the emergence of another potential powerhouse. The Magpies’ new owners, who have the backing of Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund, have big plans for the ailing Tyneside giant, which spent much of previous owner Mike Ashley’s 14-year reign treading water. Having seen the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City revitalised by huge cash injections in recent years, Gunners’ boss Arteta is aware of what Newcastle, who head for the Emirates Stadium this afternoon, could become and what that would mean for their competitors. He said: “It is going to raise the level, for sure, because the ambition, first of all, at the club, it will be there and when the ambition is there then normally the club is going to make decisions to fulfil those ambitions and then the level is going to rise. “That is the beauty of this league. What happens is bringing in new players, improving even the way we sell the product of the Premier League on a much broader level has a consequence that we are in the best league in the world and we have the best managers and the best players, the best facilities and that is part of it.” Asked if Arsenal and their counterparts would have to respond to that, Arteta added: “Absolutely and the demands will be better, so we have to be better and we have to find the right resources and ideas and commitment to go another step forward.” Newcastle’s brighter future - in the short term at least - could depend on their ability to drag themselves out of a dreadful start to the new season which has seen them win none of their first 12 games, a run which has thrust them again into the midst of a relegation scrap. They last won at the Emirates in 2010 and, while Arsenal will run out still smarting from last weekend’s 4-0 drubbing at Liverpool, the odds will be heavily stacked against United. Arteta is expecting much more from his players this time around after a few home truths were aired in the dressing room at Anfield. He said: “We needed more from the team at the weekend when the game changed. “It is not about individuals, it is about the collective.”

34 The Chronicle SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 2021 chroniclelive.co.uk NUFC Tindall is keeping the faith with both of Magpies’ shotstoppers Newcastle United coach Jason tindall says there is not much between Martin Dubravaka and Karl Darlow in terms of quality. the former aFc Bournemouth star believes Newcastle are blessed to have two senior stoppers of the calibre of the slovakia international and the goalie wanted by wales at the top level. Darlow has kept goal for eight matches this season and would be making his 100th appearance for the club if he starts at the emirates stadium against arsenal. tindall said: “I can only judge both goalkeepers from my time here, seeing them on a daily basis. “Both goalkeepers are very good. “the club is lucky to have two goalkeepers of the quality of Karl Darlow and Martin Dubravka. “so I think both are very good and possess different attributes.” Boss eddie Howe picked Darlow last weekend for the 3-3 draw with Brentford as he felt Dubravka was not fully match fit yet. Newcastle have not won a game at arsenal since 2010 but tindall is not interested in history. He added: “every game in the Premier league presents a different challenge, Martin Dubravka and Karl Darlow we know that. “Different styles of play, different levels of player, different tactics. “we just need to be prepared for that. we have done the work and we go into the game well prepared.” Howe finally dugout debut NEW MANAGER GIVEN ALL CLEAR TO BE PITCHSIDE FOR HUGE GUNNERS CLASH By CIARAN KELLY Newcastle United writer ciaran.kelly02@reachplc.com @CiaranKelly_ EddiE Howe will be in the Newcastle United dugout for the first time today when they face Arsenal after getting the all-clear to return from a bout of coronavirus. The Magpies boss has been selfisolating in his hotel room since testing positive last Friday but he has been heavily involved in his side’s preparations for their trip to the Emirates Stadium. After returning a negative Covid test yesterday morning, it was confirmed Howe will be on the touchline and has rebounded quickly after feeling unwell at the start of the week. Although the 43-year-old has not been at the training ground this week, assistant Jason Tindall has confirmed that the head coach has: ■ been in contact with him up to six times a day; ■ designed and reviewed sessions; ■ and spoken to some players over the phone. “i’m not surprised because i know Eddie very well,” he said. “Ed’s a hands-on manager, a hands-on coach. He wants to be involved and Sometimes I do tell him he just needs to relax and rest, but it’s not the character of Eddie, that’s for sure Jason tindall he has been involved in all the preparation this week. “We’ve been in constant dialogue throughout the week to deliver what the manager wants us to deliver in preparation for the Arsenal game. i’m not surprised. “Sometimes i do tell him he just needs to relax and rest, but it’s not the character of Eddie, that’s for sure.” Howe, whose symptoms were traced back to the middle of last week, did not have any breathing difficulties but felt particularly groggy on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. Although Howe has been away from his family, the Newcastle h e a d coach’s coaching staff are staying in the same city centre hotel and have checked in regularly with their friend on FaceTime. Tindall had Covid himself a couple of months ago and the assistant revealed that Howe’s bout has been ‘very similar’ to his. “You feel very up and down,” he said. “One minute, you feel you are OK then, all of a sudden, it just knocks you for six and you just need your bed and you need to rest and you need to sleep. Premier League likely would not know if Saudi PreMIer league chief executive richard Masters has admitted he would be unlikely to know if the saudi arabian government interfered in the running of Newcastle United. a consortium made up of amanda stavelery’s PcP capital Partners, the reuben brothers’ rB sports and Media, and saudi arabia’s Public Investment Fund (PIF) last month bought the Magpies for £305million after a lengthy stalemate with the league. One of the key barriers to the deal going through was the inability of consortium bosses to explain the separation between the PIF and the state of saudi arabia, which ultimately controls the fund. when the takeover was approved, the Premier league said they had received ‘legally binding assurances’ to say the saudi government would not interfere in club matters. However, yesterday Masters told the BBc: “the takeover has gone through and we have to be comfortable that all the things we do at the Premier league will be preserved under the new ownership and the equality and diversity scheme will be preserved. “You can’t have one rule for one and one for another and so

facebook.com/NewcastleChronicle SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 2021 The Chronicle 35 ready to make with Magpies NUFC Training will continue to push squad Newcastle United’s players are coping with the extra demands placed on them by the new coaching staff, Jason tindall has confirmed. Vice-captain Jonjo shelvey (pictured below) said earlier this week that he was initially falling asleep at 8pm at night after the intensity levels were upped at the training ground in eddie Howe’s first week. the former Bournemouth boss has been reviewing training sessions from his hotel room as he has been battling with covid this week and has spoken with some players. after so long playing in a defensively minded manner, the Magpies are going through a lot of changes all at once. However, tindall believes the players are adapting to the new methods of Howe’s regime and Jason tindall shouts out instructions during a United training session government was running Toon, says Masters Newcastle will be run on the right basis. “PIF are an investor in many other companies in this country and maybe football is being targeted and talked about in a different way. I can’t choose who is chairing a football club. the owners test doesn’t let us take a view on that.” when asked whether the saudi state could still interfere with club affairs and order PIF what to do, Masters said: “In that instance, I don’t think we would know. [But] I don’t think it is going to happen.” Masters said that the Premier league had “legally binding assurances” that there would be no interference but that owners can be removed if there was “evidence to the contrary”. Masters also insisted that the PIF was separate to the saudi state, despite giving no indication of what those assurances look like. the former ecB and Football league official added: “there is a corporate difference between the two, there is. “that’s what we were investigating – whether the saudi state could control the club through the investment fund. “we have received assurances that is not the case.” “He’s been a little bit like that. Certainly in the early part of the week, where he was feeling at his worst, he was sleeping a lot, resting a lot. “In terms of sickness and bad headaches and that sort of stuff, he wasn’t really feeling that but I know it took it out of him physically” Tindall also confirmed there were no more positive cases in the squad, meaning the Magpies have managed to avoid a repeat of last year’s chaos. Twelve months ago, they had to postpone a game at Aston Villa and shut the training ground after the virus ran riot through the squad. “When one person gets it, you do worry a little bit, but thankfully we’ve tested every single day this week as a group of players and staff and everybody has come through fine,” Tindall said. Among the players keen to impress Howe and Tindall has been youngster Elliot Anderson, who scored a hat-trick for the reserves at Nottingham Forest on Tuesday. Anderson, who made his firstteam debut at Arsenal last season, has continued to train with the senior squad in recent weeks and Tindall has been impressed with the 19-yearold. “He’s certainly a bright talent from what we’ve seen out on the training ground,” he added. “He’s got very good potential. “We’re very fortunate here at this football club to have some very good attacking players so there’s a lot of competition in the attacking areas.” Premier league chief executive Richard Masters reckons they will get stronger as the weeks go by. the former Bournemouth boss said: “In terms of the first four or five days, how they were feeling the following day, even compared to this week the demand has still been the same. “the physical outputs have been very good but they have probably adapted a lot better and they are looking good in training. “so there is always that adaption period of time but hopefully they are over that now and they can deliver that on a consistent basis.” Meanwhile, Dwight Gayle faces a late fitness check to see if he will be available to face arsenal this afternoon. the former crystal Palace striker, who has been used just four times this season, has picked up a muscle injury and staff will assess the forward ahead of Newcastle’s tough clash at the emirates stadium. tindall said: “Dwight Gayle was feeling his hamstring slightly so that’s one that will be assessed. “Other than that there’s been no new injury concerns for us.”

facebook.com/NewcastleChronicle SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 2021 The Chronicle 3 Hotseat ACTOR Craig Charles is best known for starring in sci-fi comedy Red Dwarf as Dave Lister and for playing cabbie Lloyd Mullaney in Coronation Street. The 57-year-old has also turned his hand to DJing as well as radio presenting. Now he has added quizshow host to his CV with Channel 4’s Moneybags, from the makers of Million Pound Drop and Pointless. Contestants get the chance to win bags of cash up to £1m each week. In each episode, players hope to be selected to take their place in front of the money belt for one of the three head-to-head battles. They face a series of questions with the answers on moneybags that pass along a conveyor belt in front of them. Grab a right answer and you get that bag’s value – anything from £1,000 to £100,000. But pick a wrong bag and you could lose everything. Whoever banks the most cash in each round will compete in the ‘triple-header’ – a tense three-way battle in which whoever grabs, or steals, the most cash will play to win it all in the final. Here Craig talks about the new show, his own quizzing skills, and his multi-skilled work life. Can you tell us about Moneybags? It’s lots of fun and there are major reversals of fortune within the game. One minute you can look like you’re going to be going away with a load of money and perhaps be way ahead of your opponents and then in the next minute you could lose it all in a bankruptcy. Or you could be someone doing really badly, and then you get a Steal bag, and you can steal your opponent’s value. It’s really quite exciting and quite tense. This is your first time hosting a quiz show, how have you found it? I’ve been offered quiz shows before, and they’ve never really seemed right to me. When this came along, it just felt like the right fit for me. It suited my personality and the tone of the game was really working for me. Plus, the fact that there’s a lot of Craig Charles fronts Channel 4’s new quiz show, Moneybags, devised by the team behind Pointless. Jane Haasefinds out how he feels about becoming a game-show host money up for grabs for the players really appealed to me as well. There’s a chance to be in the middle of somebody’s life-changing Craig as Dave Lister in Red Dwarf with Danny John-Jules as The Cat (far left), Chris Barrie as Arnold Rimmer, and Robert Llewellyn as Kryten (far right) moment and that’s what got me really excited. There are a few afternoon quiz shows out there – do you see them as rivals or are you happy doing your own thing? This is a Channel 4 show, and I think it is happy in its own skin. I don’t know if they’ve kept it in, but we did take the mick out of some of the other shows. Sometimes I’d tell a contestant, “Fifty thousand pounds in that bag! You’d have to win Pointless 50 times to take that much home, you know!”. So yes, I did have some slight digs but they’re only playful. Is it hard to keep a poker face when you know the contestants have gone wrong? Yeah, I do. I also find it hard not to unintentionally indicate what the right answer is. In the studio, of course, I’ve got Craig Charles on the set of Moneybags There’s a chance to see somebody’s life change. That’s what got me really excited Me and my son and daughter did Britain’s Brightest Family – it turns out, we’re Britain’s Thickest Family! Moneybags host Craig Charles lots of people looking at me to make sure I don’t give any tells. You do have to keep a straight face because you don’t want to give anything away. How would you get on if you were playing as a contestant? I have done a few quizzes lately where I’ve done really quite badly. Me and my son and daughter did Britain’s Brightest Family – it turns out, we’re Britain’s Thickest Family! Craig as Lloyd Mullaney with Corrie co-star Hayley Tammaddon What is your all-time favourite quiz? I do like Pointless. And I like The Chase. I like Eggheads as well. I like quizzes a lot, actually. I love Countdown... I suppose you wouldn’t call that a quiz, really. I’ve just recently filmed some episodes of Countdown where I’ll be in Dictionary Corner and I did quite well. You’ve recently started a new show on BBC Radio 6 Music after nearly 20 years at the station. What do you enjoy about doing radio? I enjoy the immediacy of radio. I think it was brought home during lockdown just how intimate radio can be as a way of entertaining and communicating with people. I’ve always been a radio person. I asked Terry Wogan, “Terry, how do you feel broadcasting for eight million people a morning?”, and he turned around and said, “I don’t, Craig. I just broadcast to one”. So, he used to broadcast like he was just talking to YOU, and that’s what made it so special. I’ve been on the network since the start. I’m like the Ken Barlow of 6 Music. We can’t not mention the legendary Red Dwarf... At our peak, we were getting something like 8.9 million viewers, the highest-rated BBC2 comedy ever – I don’t think that’ll ever get beaten now. And they called it a cult [show]! We were getting twice the viewing figures of Top Gear and they still called it cult. I don’t understand that. What else do you have coming up? I’ve got an album coming out this month called Craig Charles Trunk of Funk Volume 2. I’ve got The Gadget Show [on Channel 5]. And I’ve got a Sky History series on UFOs about all this new material and footage that has been released by the Americans. We’ve interviewed all sorts of people like pilots, and crew on aircraft carriers who have seen unidentified flying objects or have had close encounters. I’ve done that with Sarah Cruddas, she’s an astrophysicist and that’s coming out in January. And then of course I’ve got six days a week for the radio. You’re a busy boy then? You could say that! It’s taken me a long time to become a media darling. You’ll all be sick of the sight of me by January! ■■Moneybags airs weekdays at 3pm on Channel 4 and streams on All 4

4 The Chronicle SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 2021 chroniclelive.co.uk Food & Drink RAISE A GLASS WITH JANE CLARE I’m nothing if not predictable. I always kick off my festive columns with gift ideas. They’re to give you inspiration, but I like to leave this column “lying around” in unobtrusive places. Next to the milk in the fridge or Sellotaped to the toothpaste. Because I don’t suggest gifts lightly. They’re gifts I’d like people to buy me. I’ve met the creator of this first gift idea, Victoria Fitzgerald, who was enthused to develop it because she once ordered a cocktail and it was missing the naughty, but moreishly nice, salty rim on the glass. “If you are going to make a cocktail, for goodness sake do it well,” she told me. And so The Salty Rim Company was born. There’s a selection of salty or sweet “dips” in craftily designed tins to give the edge of your cocktail glass a finishing “brim trim”. It’s such a simple but fun way to bring a touch of expertise to a homemade cocktail. New for Christmas is a limited edition festive Santa Baby red and white cocktail rim sugar (the cocktail pictured above is a Cosmo). Others include Classic Margarita Cocktail Salt; Citrus Cocktail Salt; Chilli & Lime Cocktail Salt and a Bloody Mary Brim Trim & Mix. They’re £9.99 a tin, from thesaltyrim.co.uk. Talking of cocktails, the LAIBA Gift Set (RRP £59, online at laibabeverages.com, pictured) is an awardwinning range of bottled cocktails created by worldrenowned mixologist Michael Chen. The gift set includes eight luxury bottled cocktails, including Twisted Negroni with gin, Campari, Cinzano and Cocchi Amaro (yes please, says my note in the fridge!!) and Cold Brew Martini with vodka, coffee, black rum and salted caramel. You can’t go wrong with a gin, and for a bit of fun why not buy one in a light-up phone box. Find the delicious blue gin, London No.1 Gin in its stand-out gift box livery at Selfridges (£42.99). And you can never have enough glasses, in my humble opinion. My favourite selection is online at The Vintage List. There’s a range of handmade cut glasses, inspired by 19th and early 20th century English designs. Prices vary, but my random note next to the toothpaste says nonchalantly “a set of six champagne saucers with a gold rim design”. They would be £72. Happy gift hunting. ■■Jane is a member of the Circle of Wine Writers. Find her on social media and online as One Foot in the Grapes.

He said, ‘You don’t want to do that, you want to put your hand down the side and see whether there’s any’. “So he put his hand down the side of his potatoes, no flowers on them, and up came little tiny potatoes and it was beautiful.” Multiply your supermarket basil Mary gets through a lot of basil in her kitchen – and she doesn’t Nordic seed and nut loaf (900g loaf) Ingredients: Butter or oil, for greasing; 4 large eggs; 3tbsp olive oil; 50g soft dried dates, finely chopped; 5g sea salt; 75g pumpkin seeds; 75g sunflower seeds; 150g pecan nuts, finely chopped; 50g sesame seeds; 3tbsp chia seeds keep it in the fridge, because it likes to be warm. “If you don’t want to sow seeds, you can buy a pot in your supermarket and then nip out the tops, divide them up and spread them out in the garden,” she recommends. “They’ll grow well, or spread them out on the windowsill, so you’ve got more plants.” Make fresh herbs last longer Mary grows her own tarragon, sage, basil and rosemary, and is adept at keeping them fresh. “I put my herbs in a jug or a jam Method: 1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/160°C fan/Gas 4. Grease the base and sides of a 900g loaf tin and line with non-stick baking paper. 2. Break the eggs into a bowl and beat with a fork until combined. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well using a wooden spoon. 3. Pour the mixture into the loaf tin and bake for 45-50 Doyenne of the Kitchen, Mary Berry has more tips and recipes to share Expert tips from the Berry best Mary Berry is back with a new series and cookbook, Love To Cook. Ella Walkergets some top advice jar and slip a poly bag over the top and keep them in the fridge,” she explains. “They’ll keep very well. Parsley, whether you grow flatleaf or ordinary parsley, it doesn’t matter, they’re a very similar flavour – they will keep well if you’ve put the stalks in water.” Keep your roasting tin sparkling Washing up as she goes is classic Mary Berry, but if you’ve got a pan that really won’t shine, she has a back up plan. “If you have a really burnt dish that you’ve been roasting in, put a minutes, until golden brown and firm in the centre. 4. Leave to cool in the tin for five minutes, then loosen the edges with a palette knife, remove from the tin and place on a wire rack to cool completely. 5. Slice into thin slices to serve. Berry’s tips: Can be made up to a day before. Freezes well. Buy a pot (of basil) in your supermarket and then nip out the tops, divide them up and spread them out in the garden. They’ll grow well, or spread them out on the windowsill, so you’ve got more plants dishwasher tablet in it and pour boiling water on it and leave it overnight. You’ll be amazed how easily it comes off.” Why cauliflower is a bargain Love To Cook goes big on vegetables, and Mary is a particular fan of cauliflower: “A cauliflower to me is such a good buy. You can roast it, cut thick slices from it, you can fry it, and any of the bits that fall off round the outside, you can stir-fry.” How to cut waste Fully aware of the need to reduce kitchen waste, Mary makes “compost from everything that’s not cooked”, she says, and she’s also a big fan of using re-usable plastic boxes that have often had something else in. “I then wash them and use them again. I use beeswax paper for wrapping, it clings to itself and you can use it again.” On getting the right level of heat Everyone knows what spice level suits them. “My young (family) like chillies so that they jump when they eat them,” says Mary. “In the recipes, I always suggest a small amount. And if you want to add more, do. And spices – I love spices, I love curries. But I think you have to temper them to your family.” ■■Love To Cook by Mary Berry is published by BBC Books, priced £26.

facebook.com/NewcastleChronicle SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 2021 The Chronicle 5 Food & Drink sticky soy and ginger fillet(Serves 4) Ingredients: 1 large pork fillet (600g); 4 spring onions, finely shredded into long, thin strips; 1 red chilli, deseeded and thinly sliced; 2tbsp chopped coriander For the marinade: 4cm fresh root ginger, peeled and grated; 2 garlic cloves, crushed; 4tbsp soy sauce; 2tbsp sweet chilli sauce; 3tbsp honey Method: 1. To make the marinade, measure all the ingredients into a dish and mix well. 2. Trim any sinew from the fillet and discard. Sit the fillet in the marinade, season with salt and black pepper and turn to coat until all the fillet is covered. Leave to marinate for a few hours in the fridge. 3. Preheat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan/Gas 7 and line a small roasting tin with non-stick baking paper. 4. Remove the fillet from the marinade (reserving the marinade to use later) and sit it in the roasting tin. Roast in the oven for 25-30 minutes, until golden brown and cooked through. 5. Remove the fillet from the roasting tin and set aside on a board to rest. Cover with foil and leave for five minutes before carving. 6. Place the reserved marinade in a small saucepan and place over a medium heat. Bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally. 7. Carve the pork into slices and arrange on a platter. Pour the hot marinade over the top and scatter with the spring onions, red chilli and coriander. Serve with rice or noodles. Berry’s tips: Can be marinated up to eight hours ahead. If serving cold can be roasted up to four hours ahead. Freezes well raw in the marinade. lemon and lime meringue tranch pie (Serves 8-10) Ingredients: Shortcrust pastry: 150g plain flour; 90g butter, cubed; 2tbsp icing sugar; 1 egg For the filling: 30g cornflour; finely grated zest and juice of 1 large lemon; finely grated zest and juice of 1 large lime; 50g caster sugar; 3 egg yolks For the meringue topping: 3 egg whites; 175g caster sugar; a 12 x 36 x 2.5cm rectangular loose-bottomed fluted or tranche tin. Method: 1. For the pastry: Whizz the flour, butter and sugar in a food processor until they resemble fine breadcrumbs. Add the egg and whiz again until the dough forms a ball. Turn out on to a lightly floured surface and roll thinly. Line the tin and press the pastry into the sides. Prick the base with a fork and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes. 2. Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan/Gas 6 and place a baking tray in the oven to get very hot. 3. Line the pastry case with non-stick baking paper, add baking beans, place on the hot baking tray and bake for 15 minutes. Remove the beans and paper and bake for another five minutes, or until the pastry is crisp and lightly golden. Leave to cool. Reduce the oven temperature to 150°C/130°C fan/Gas 2. 4. For the filling: In a pan whisk together the cornflour and 200ml water. Add the zest and juice of the lemon and lime and place over a medium heat. Continue to whisk until the mixture has boiled and thickened. Remove from the heat, add the sugar and egg yolks and whisk again. Pour into the pastry case and chill in the fridge. 5. For the meringue topping: Whisk the egg whites until stiff. Add the sugar a little at a time, whisking on full speed, until you have a shiny, glossy meringue. Spoon into a piping bag with a plain 1.5cm nozzle and pipe even blobs over the surface of the chilled custard in a neat pattern. If you don’t have a piping bag, you can use two dessert spoons. 6. Bake for 35-40 minutes, until pale golden on top and firm to touch. Leave to cool for 15 minutes before removing from the tin. Serve warm with pouring cream. Berry’s tips: Can be made up to eight hours ahead and reheated gently to serve. Not for freezing. Do not serve the pie hot, as the filling may be a bit soft and will spill out of the pastry case.

Also cover picture Red velvet blazer £85 and trousers £55, camisole £35 Teal metallic ruffle maxi dress £120 How was your Black Friday? Is there a shiny new widescreen TV on your living room wall? Is supper bubbling away in a cut-price slow cooker? I don’t think I have ever been less excited about a Black Friday as I was about this one. And that is saying something given that this time last year we couldn’t even go to the shops, let alone bag a bargain. Then again, I can’t remember the last time I went on a realworld retail therapy binge. My weekly ‘big shops’ at Lidl and Aldi don’t count. It also occurred to me recently that, beyond food and unavoidable household purchases, I can’t remember the last time I actually paid full price for anything. I even buy my wine in a ‘Mix six’ at Majestic ‘cos they knock a few quid off. My desire for a discount is not new. I got it from my momma, as the kids say. She’ll buy anything that’s marked down. Last year she bought an escalator. An old joke, I know. But she definitely raised me to always feel like I am getting value for money, whether I am buying three boxes of cat food for the price of two or a Balmain biker jacket with £100 off. Just this week she rang me to check if I knew they were selling Mulberry handbags in our local TK Maxx for a fraction of the RRP. Now that I do almost all of my clothes shopping online – a decision driven largely by lack of choice on the real-world high street – looking for reductions is second nature. Sitting at my laptop or scrolling through my phone, I don’t only have a dozen or so shops in which to find the perfect pair of jeans or that little black party dress, I have stores around the world to choose from. There’s always a sale on somewhere. You could say every Monday’s a Cyber Monday in my house. In recent months I have had clothes arrive on my doorstep from Paris, Milan and Los Angeles. Word of warning, a great discount might not be quite so great when you add international postage to it. Discounts are without doubt a big draw for consumers. So much so that some online fashion giants – household names among them – appear to be perpetually in ‘sale’ mode with a price in red next to every listing on their sites. These stores know that we are hardwired to see the red colour and be drawn to it, while studies have shown that words like “sale”, “deal” and “bargain” trigger a reward reaction in our brains. The trick is ensuring your reward doesn’t morph into remorse. Remember, if you wouldn’t buy it full price, don’t get it just because it has been reduced. This Christmas shopping season make sure it’s not a case of buy now, pain later. Supermarket ranges have been getting better and better in recent years as they take their cues from the catwalks. But if you’re scouring the rails at your local Asda this weekend and spot something that looks a little Gucci-esque you may want to take a closer look at the label. To tie in with the highly anticipated release of Ridley Scott’s House of Gucci – which I can’t wait to see – George at Asda has hidden a host of pre-loved Gucci buys across their stores. Yes you read that right. You could pick up a genuine piece of designer fashion for as little as £12. The only catch is no-one knows which supermarkets they are in. A quick Google search reveals there are just over 600 Asda stores in the UK. I think I might need a few days off work....

8 The Chronicle SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 2021 chroniclelive.co.uk Your Garden From arches to arbours, willow structures will look gorgeous in your garden – and with a little know-how, you can get the look without a hefty price tag Plant OF THE WEEK viburnum davidii There aren’t many small, compact evergreen shrubs whose peak season of interest is winter, but Viburnum davidii fits the bill perfectly. A neat, dome-shaped plant, its shiny, dark-green, leathery-looking oval leaves are patterned with deep parallel veins. In late autumn and winter, the tip of each stem is crowned with a generous cluster of bright turquoise berries, which stand out brilliantly against the background foliage. It’s easily grown in the garden too. Simply give it fertile, reasonably welldrained soil with plenty of organic matter, and it’s happy in sun or light shade. to do list ■■Do any little tidying jobs on the patio or in the front garden if you’ll be entertaining over Christmas, and sort out your outdoor festive lights, above, so there’s time to replace them if they don’t work. ■■Plant up patio containers for Christmas. With a large container, include red-stemmed cornus, a conifer, or a small, standard-trained, blue-tinged holly tree as the centrepiece. ■■Start collecting small stocking fillers from garden centres for raffle prizes at local events, or as gifts for gardening friends. Willow talk Alan Titchmarsh Gardening Expert Living willow sculptures, arches, tunnels and other structures are much-loved garden features that are pricey to buy but just as much fun to make for yourself. You can grow your own withies (long, slim, willow wands that behave like huge hardwood cuttings) from shrubby willows already growing in your garden. Alternatively, buy them ready to use from specialist suppliers. They are available between January and March but it’s best to order now. Which willow? Most of the willows grown for basket-making are suitable – normally Salix viminalis cultivars. When the plants are cut down, they generate long, straight, slim stems that are ideal for the job. Some specialist nurseries can also supply more unusual varieties with coloured bark. Shrubby garden willows with coloured stems such as Salix alba ‘Britzensis’ can be used for making smaller living sculptures, but Weeping willows are not suitable. Grow your own withies Plant a suitable willow in naturally damp ground. Allow a year to get it established, then in late March cut the whole plant down to about 4-6in and mulch generously. Feed well in April or May and long straight stems will soon be produced. Allow these to grow for two or three years before harvesting them. Cut them off 4-6in above ground level any time between January and late March. Use your withies as soon as possible after cutting, as they may not take root if they dry out too much. Prepare the soil Mark out the site for your living willow structure. Clear the ground of grass, weeds and large stones, then work in plenty of well-rotted compost. Make sure to leave the soil soft enough to push cuttings into. Make a living arch Choose the longest withies you can get and plant a row 4-6in apart along each side of the arch. Allow them to grow straight up, then when they are a foot or so NO PLACE LIKE DOME: A large living willow shelter at the centre of a garden NATURAL HIDEAWAY: Create sheltered seating SIDE SHOOT: Catkins forming beyond the height you want, bend the tops over and tie them in place to form the top of the arch. When side shoots start to grow, clip regularly so they thicken and make a more solid-looking arch. Make a tunnel Mark out a straight central path that will go through the middle of your tunnel – prepare beds of soil along either side and plant a pair of very long withies, one on each side of the arch. Continue, spacing each pair a foot or 18in apart. When they reach the required height, bend them over and tie them together in the centre to make a series of arches. Then tie long, straight, strong, dry willow stems horizontally along the top and sides of the arches to join them together and stiffen the structure. Once the willow stems are rooted and well established, side shoots will need trimming off to maintain a neat shape. Make an arbour Mark out a circle large enough to put a seat inside and prepare the soil round the edges. Push in long willow withies every 4-6in to make a single or double row around the outside, leaving a gap for a wide entrance. When the stems have rooted and grow tall enough, tie them together at the top so they form a domed roof. Once you have side shoots start ing to grow you will need clip the sides so you can maintain a nice tight shape.

facebook.com/NewcastleChronicle SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 2021 The Chronicle 9 TWIST AGAIN: A woven willow pathway tunnel SpotlightON WITCH HAZEL Winter shrubs may not have the wow factor of their summer-flowering chums, but if well arranged, they’ll give you a subtle look just right for accentuating the changing seasons. Witch hazel has always been one of my favourites. The most popular are the yellow-flowering varieties. Of these, Hamamelis x intermedia ‘Pallida’ is by far the best as its large, spidery-shaped flowers show up well, even in low winter light. There are varieties with orange or even deep-red flowers but, although they look fab in the garden centre, they can “vanish” when you get them home unless they have the right background to set them off. Blue-green conifers do the job best, otherwise plant them in front of a fence or outbuilding in a contrasting deepgreen shade. What’s not generally known about witch hazels is that their flowers are perfumed. But unless you grow lots in a warm, sheltered spot that traps and magnifies the fragile fragrance, the only way you will really notice in cold weather is by cupping the flowers in your hand and puffing on them – the warmth of your breath releases the scent. It’s a great party trick.

The third property for the ‘microhotel’ chain features Motto’s trademark ‘travel-sized’ stylish minimal rooms (some with interconnecting doors, linking up three in a row) and there’s an on-site restaurant and bar. From £140 per night, room only. hilton.com/en/hotels/nycdluamotto-new-york-city-chelsea High Line park is nearby As I turn a corner, the imposing Guernica comes into sight, stretching from floor to ceiling and across most of the wall. Picasso’s black and white Cubist masterpiece is almost as daunting in size, as it is affecting in subject. Considered to be one of the most important pieces of 20th century art – and arguably the painter’s most famous work – the anti-war painting expresses outrage at a Nazi bombing of Spanish city Guernica two years before the Second World War broke out. The painting hangs in Reina Sofia, one of the capital’s finest art galleries, and is no doubt the reason many visitors roam its grand hallways. Get in early enough and the experience is even more impactful without a crowd gathered in front. Almost equally well-known, the Spanish painter’s Weeping Woman hangs on the opposite wall and Salvador Dali’s Girl At The Window is displayed around the corner. The museum is unique in its expanse of work, our guide Miriam says. “It’s a window to the 20th century; we show the relationship between artists and context. From November this year, all six floors of the Reina Sofia will be open, allowing visitors to view the gallery’s works from the 20th century to the present day as a permanent collection for the first time. The museum makes up one point of the ‘Golden Triangle’ in Madrid – or Paseo del Arte – a walkable central area of three of the most important art collections in Spain. But not all of Madrid’s art hangs in museums. Nearby, in the vibrant Lavapies neighbourhood, a piece of street art depicts migrants crammed into a small dinghy arriving into a Spanish port. It’s one of many painted along a 300-metre wall outside an abandoned tobacco factory (the basement is now home to artist studios) as part of the Muros Tabacalera project. The piece, by Yksuhc Juan, was created last year. “The focus is luck, it’s chance, who they are and where they come from, just humans trying to have a better future,” says our guide Gerardo Reyna from Cool Tour Spain (cooltourspain.com). While it won’t enjoy the same longevity as Picasso’s Guernica – “Street artists know the pieces are there until the moment they finish (when another artist paints on top)”, says Gerardo – there is a poignant parallel to their subject The ‘guitar’ in the Hard Rock Hotel lobby matter. Some 80 years apart, both show outrage for innocent people affected by conflict. You’d be hard pressed to find a more concentrated selection of street art in Madrid than Lavapies, although the Malasana area (think NEED TO KNOW Rocking the art and soul of Madrid Lauren Taylor spends a long weekend at the new Hard Rock Hotel in the Spanish capital Lauren Taylor, above finds street art in Lavapies and, below, the mural by D*FACE ■■Rooms at Hard Rock Hotel Madrid start from E145/£124.

A huge pop artinspired scene of an embracing couple by British artist D*Face stretches up the side of a residential block, and not far away there’s a collaboration between famed Spanish painter Okuda and Portuguese Bordalo II – on one side is a chimp made from recycled materials, the other features a geometric, surrealist rabbit. “It’s Madrid’s most Instagrammed spot,” says Gerardo. The new Hard Rock Hotel Madrid, where I’m staying, sits directly opposite the Reina Sofia and is a 10-minute walk into the bustle of Lavapies. Launched in Frank Gomez’ mural behind the hotel bar Hard Rock’s 50th anniversary year, the smart four-star offering is their 37th property. Budapest and New York are due to open early 2022. The hotel celebrates the city’s artistic talent. Behind the bar is a striking, specially commissioned mural by local young street artist Frank Gomez inspired by the countercultural movement, La Movida, which charted a shift to democracy after the death of dictator Francisco Franco in 1975. Other decorations inside the property include David Bowie’s platform boots, a jacket worn by Rihanna and a seven-storey light installation of a giant guitar in the lobby. As for the hotel experience, highlights include a rooftop bar with day beds, live music, a pool and outdoor garden, and exceptional food. It feels like a grown-up take on the brand many will be familiar with. But as we sit down to a ninecourse chef’s table testing menu, it’s clear there’s no classic Hard Rock burger with American cheese in sight.

There’s a savoury corn creme brulee inspired by Venezuelan arepas and rabbit ribs with a Canarian sauce.

Opened in 1819, it houses a 8,600-painting collection dating back to the 12th century – impossible to get through unless you have all day, but Spanish masters Velazquez and Goya, and Dutch artist Bosch were my highlights. The Thyssen-Bornemisza is a further five-minute stroll: another heavyweight in modern art. I catch the Rene Magritte exhibition – running until the end of January 2022.

Its distinct neighbourhoods are a maze of pretty side streets and pastel coloured blocks with Juliet balconies, and it’s easy to lose hours weaving through them. In nearby, bohemian Las Letras, poetry emblazoned in brass letters decorates some of the streets. Cafes sprawl onto pavements with locals drinking wine at lunchtime, classic Spanish jamon hangs in shop windows and busy hole-in-the-wall tapas restaurants are plentiful. Towards the more touristy end of town, the historic Plaza Mayor with its enormous esplanade dates back to 1620. Once the centre for bullfights and public executions, no firsttime trip to Madrid would be complete without at least setting foot in it. It’s here you’ll find the best bocadillo de calamares, a fried calamari sandwich in white bread, a staple of Madrid. Locals are more likely to eat them at 2am on their way home from the bars, but it’s just as delicious for lunch. There’s one rule though: don’t order one at a sit down cafe; they’re best enjoyed from a takeaway window. I queue at La Campana and scoff mine with the Casa de la Panaderia and all its architectural glory in plain view. ■■Barbados from £1,277pp: an all-inclusive week at the four-star adults-only Sugar Cane Hotel & Spa in Maynards departs from Heathrow on December 6. travelsupermarket.com ■■Thailand from £907pp: a 10-night B&B holiday at the fourstar Thavorn Palm Beach Resort on Karon Beach, Phuket, includes flights from Heathrow on December 7. southalltravel. co.uk ■■Egypt from £357pp: fly from Bristol on December 8 for an all-inclusive seven-night stay at the four-star Parrotel Aqua Park Resort in Sharm el Sheikh.

14 The Chronicle SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 2021 chroniclelive.co.uk TV Highlights Whoever did this really had to be a Beatles fan... His name may be synonymous with Lord Of The Rings, but film-maker Peter Jackson has found himself tackling an altogether different project with new documentary series The Beatles: Get Back. Born in New Zealand – a world away from the height of the UK’s Beatlemania in the 1960s – the 60-year-old Oscar-winning director’s love of the Liverpool band began with a handful of pocket money and the purchase of the Red and Blue compilation albums. In 2017, Apple Corps – the company charged with managing The Beatles’ creative and business interests – approached Peter and asked whether he’d consider making use of previously unseen footage from their vaults. Now, the three-part Disney+ docuseries delves into the making of the Beatles album Let It Be. Peter explains more... What made you the right director for this prestigious project? I think whoever did this needed to The Beatles, pictured in the recording studio, in part of the new docuseries britain by beach Tonight, Channel 4, 8pm Anita Rani finishes her trip around Britain’s beaches by exploring Yorkshire and Northumberland. She begins in Whitby, which brings back childhood memories for the presenter, but she also learns more about the real shipwreck that inspired a key scene in Bram Stoker’s Dracula. From there, Anita goes on to Scarborough to find out why it has a claim to be the oldest seaside resort in the world, before heading to Lindisfarne to hear about the Viking raid that began a new age in Britain. Finally, she shares a tale of With his highly anticipated documentary series The Beatles: Get Back ready to go, film-maker Peter Jackson tells Danielle de Wolfeall about it be a Beatles fan because you’re dealing with so much material – 130, 140, 150 hours of audio. The sound tapes were just rolling virtually all the time. Film stock was more expensive than the audio, so the sound recorders would roll the quarter-inch tapes but the cameras were just turned on and off every now and again. So whoever did it really did need to be a Beatles fan to actually be able to understand and decipher some of the references that they make in the conversations. Trawling through previously unreleased tapes must have proved exciting? You’re eavesdropping on these conversations from 1969, which is effectively how I felt all the time TV PICKS OF THE WEEK smugglers in Robin Hood’s Bay. Doctor Who: Flux Tomorrow, BBC1, 6.25pm It’s the penultimate episode of the all-too-short run, and the forces of evil are gathering, so no wonder it seems as if the odds are stacked against the Doctor (Jodie Whittaker), Yaz (Mandip Gill) and Dan (John Bishop). It’s not just the villains who are over the last four years working on this. The audio is weird. The story is often told in the audio recordings, so I do feel like I’m eavesdropping in some sort of CIAtype way on conversations [from] 52 years ago. The Beatles: Get Back is more than just ‘the making of Let It Be’, isn’t it? It’s the story of the making of the album Let It Be, but it’s actually technically not because they also do a lot of other songs that aren’t on Let It Be. Twelve of the tracks are off the Abbey Road album – there’s 17 tracks on Abbey Road, which was released in September ‘69. Plus there’s probably eight or 10 of their solo album tracks. Is it strange to think the Beatles went into the studio with next to no plan? Criticising the Beatles is not in my DNA. But if I had a criticism of the Beatles, looking at the footage, it does strike me as being very strange how little organisation there seems to be... Part of the story of Get Back was they were aiming to do this live TV show – not the rooftop one, it’s something completely different. So this is not really a recording. Until they get to the performance, assembling, as this episode has a pretty impressive cast, with Kevin McNally, Robert Bathurst and Barbara Flynn joining the regulars, along with Rochenda Sandall and Craig Parkinson, who were both previously seen in a very different Sunday night BBC drama, Line of Duty. Along for the Ride with David O’Doherty Monday, Channel 4, 10pm For the second episode in his freewheeling series, comedian David O’Doherty is getting on his bike with Grayson Perry. As well as being an artist and TV presenter, Grayson is also a former mountain-bike racer, so he should be in his element as they head to the wilds of the Brecon Beacons, where there are stunning views – and challenging hills. During the trip, they bond by chatting about the artist’s career and childhood. But is there a chance they’ve bonded a little too much when they have to tackle a gruelling five mile climb while nursing hangovers? Who Do You Think You Are? Tuesday, BBC1, 9pm Former shadow Oscar-winning director Peter Jackson, whose latest project is a three-part docuseries about the Fab Four Ed Balls looks into his family history chancellor Ed Balls grew up in a family that wanted to make the world a better place, and sets out to find out what kind of people his ancestors were. First up, he looks into rumours of a link to Nelson’s ship HMS Victory. Initially, it looks like Ed will uncover a heroic tale, but the grim reality isn’t quite what he was hoping for. Paul O’Grady: For the Love of Dogs Wednesday, ITV, 8pm The presenter comes face to face with the long and the short and the tall this

facebook.com/NewcastleChronicle Paul meets Great Dane Tammy they’re not recording, just rehearsing. What was the biggest revelation for you? They have this wonderful running battle with Michael Lindsay-Hogg, the [Let It Be] director. Michael is determined to try to capture as much candid material as he can. Instead of saying, ‘Look Michael, if we’re gonna be recorded on film, tell us when you’re doing that and we’ll do our thing but we don’t want you to film or record us any other time’, they obviously didn’t say that. And what John [Lennon] and George [Harrison] used to do is, if they were in conversation, they would turn their amps up loud. They’d strum the guitar – they’d just be strumming, not playing anything, no tune – so all Michael’s microphones were recording was this loud guitar. And you’d see the Beatles talking, having some private chat. So they were sort of in this running battle. Were you able to unpick the audio? What we’ve been able to do with computer technology and artifi- week. His first canine companion is a Great Dane, a gentle giant who simply wants to be loved. That’s more than can be said for a pair of Lakeland terriers who can’t live with or without each other – they spend their whole lives bickering, and it’s up to Paul to cial intelligence-based technology is we’ve been able to strip the guitars off now and expose the private conversations that they had. So a lot of our movie features private conversations that they tried to disguise. Did you speak with Michael before entering the edit suite? I’ve been talking to [Michael] all the time and he’s been telling me stories of his post-production, of the Beatles coming to the cutting room and directing certain things. Paul [McCartney] would come in one day and say, ‘Ah, can you put this in or take that out?’ The next day John would come in and give completely different instructions. Poor Michael is there trying to make everybody happy. Michael wasn’t allowed to show George leaving. They said, ‘No, absolutely not. We’re not gonna have that in the film’. So, I was thinking, ‘How much of this am I gonna get?’ ‘cause the Beatles are famously in control of their image, in control of how they come across. Were you ever concerned about the feedback you’d receive from the surviving band members? I get the feeling there’s no concern about their image any more. When they got to see the finished thing, I was expecting notes. And it wouldn’t have surprised teach them some manners. Luxury Christmas for Less Thursday, Channel 4, 8pm Christmas was cancelled for many last year, so you may be crying out for a luxurious yuletide blowout. But with money tighter than ever and shortages predicted on the high street, it won’t be easy. Thankfully, Sabrina Grant and Sophie Morgan are on hand with tricks to get top quality goods for bargain prices. The first of two episodes includes a guide to buying real diamonds at half the price and where to get this year’s finest tasting smoked salmon and Ringo Starr, Paul McCartney, John Lennon and George Harrison during the band’s iconic gig on the rooftop of Apple Corp headquarters in Savile Row, London, on January 30, 1969 Sir Paul McCartney and his daughter Mary at a VIP screening of The Beatles: Get Back me, and it wouldn’t have made me angry. It would’ve just been normal to get a note saying, ‘Oh, that bit where I say that, could you cut that out?’ I didn’t get a single note. And I was surprised. Not one note. Not one request to do anything. What was the most interesting discovery you made? Well, I’m not a musician and I can’t play an instrument to save myself, but I was fascinated learning about the song-writing process through the Beatles’ eyes. There’s this really fascinating process with Get Back where they have ‘Jo-Jo who lives in Arizona’, but they want Jo to have a surname. They talk about Jo Jackson, Jo Martin, Jo who lives in Arizona. Then they get rid of the surname, but they add Tucson, Arizona. So they have to have the number of words, but while they’ve got a surname, they can’t have Tucson. Even me, without any musical knowledge, thinks, ‘Oh, that actually does flow a lot better’. Is Tucson in Arizona? Yeah, that’s where [the Western] High Chaparral’s shot. So every time I hear Tucson, Arizona, now, I’m gonna think of The High Chaparral, which I used to watch in 1969 as a kid. ■■All three parts of The Beatles: Get Back are on Disney+ now Christmas pudding. And finally, there’s a look at what you get with cheaper gin. The Graham Norton Show Friday, BBC1, regions vary The headliners are undoubtedly Tom Holland and Zendaya, who are keen to whip up interest in their new film, Spider-man: No Way Home. Then it’s Henry Cavill’s turn to wax lyrical – he’s in town to promote the second run of Netflix’s fantasy series The Witcher – while Gugu Mbutha-Raw describes her role in the forthcoming BBC drama The Girl Before. Music comes from Little Mix. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 2021 The Chronicle 15 TV FILMs of the week X-Men: Days of Future Past 1 Tonight, Film4, 11.10pm In a dystopian 2023, Professor Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart) TV Highlights Wolverine (Hugh Jackman, centre) turns back the clock with Prof X and Magneto and his kin, including Magneto (Ian McKellen) and Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), stand on the precipice of extinction. The Sentinel programme, conceived by Dr Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage), has almost wiped out the mutant population and any human sympathisers with automatons attuned to mutant DNA. One glimmer of hope remains: if Kitty Pryde (Elliot Page) can harness their abilities and propel Wolverine’s consciousness back to 1973, they might be able to stop alluring shape-shifter Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) from assassinating Trask. 2 Nativity! Tomorrow, BBC1, 2.20pm Feelgood festive movie. Teacher Paul Maddens (Martin Freeman, left with co-star Ashley Jensen) takes charge of the nativity play at a Coventry primary school. He bends the truth to say that a Hollywood company is coming to see the show, which assistant Mr Poppy (Marc Wootton) then tells the kids. Soon, the city is abuzz with the news. Gone Baby Gone 3 Monday, GREAT! movies, 9pm Two private detectives (Casey Affleck and Michelle Monaghan, left) are hired to investigate the kidnapping of a four-year-old girl. But the duo’s efforts to locate the missing youngster lead them into a seedy underworld of drug dealers, gang culture and paedophiles, ultimately turning into a crisis both professionally and personally. 4 Gifted Tuesday, Film4, 6.55pm Florida boat repairman Frank Adler (Chris Evans) home-schools his six-year-old niece Mary (Mckenna Grace, left), who inherited her passion for algebra from her late mother. Mary’s maternal grandmother Evelyn (Lindsay Duncan) appears and stakes a claim to the child in court. In the process, Mary makes clear her devotion to Frank. The Man Who Knew Too Much 5 Wednesday, Film4, 4.30pm Alfred Hitchcock directs the remake of his own 1934 thriller. American couple Ben and Jo (James Stewart and Doris Day, left), are holidaying in Morocco when they witness a murder. With his dying breath, the victim tells Ben about an assassination due to take place in London. Before they can warn anyone, their son is kidnapped. 6 Vivarium Thursday, Film4, 11.15pm In this blackly humorous thriller, Tom (Jesse Eisenberg, left) and his partner Gemma (Imogen Poots) meet a real estate agent who shepherds them into a mysterious neighbourhood. The couple tries to escape the labyrinth of identikit residences until they discover a baby and stark instructions: “Raise the child and be released.” 7 Greta Friday, BBC1, 11.55pm New York waitress Frances McCullen (Chloe Grace Moretz, left) finds a swanky handbag on a subway train which contains the ID Card of Greta Hideg (Isabelle Huppert). She returns the bag and the pair become friends, until Frances discovers that Greta intentionally leaves handbags on subway trains to engineer relationships with strangers...
