8:11 pm
slowly moved to they say that this has been successful and it will continue throughout syria they also said that this will provide further stability in the country allowed the return of syrian refugees are not a priority the leaders said out of this meeting and that will be particularly welcomed by turkey which hosts around three million syrian refugees and there is specially growing unease among the turkish public over that presence beyond that there was a message to the u.s. they say made it clear that they don't believe the u.s. should be involved in syria they said they don't want foreign powers interfering in syria they play much of a conflict interference that is a thinly veiled reference to the u.s. and also a warning to turkey a serious large kurdish minority because with them saying that they are all the leaders are committed to the serious territorial integrity every steer that because the syrian kurdish militia controlling a third of syria they could ultimately secede from the country all leaders of commit themselves to prevent our it well i want to pick up on that point so the

8:13 pm
the u.s. which has been condemned by these three leaders president trump was not part of this summit in ankara he made that surprise announcement yesterday that he wants any u.s. involvement to be diminished in syria has there been any reaction to that surprise announcement. of the iranian president hassan rouhani much more the united states saying that they keep changing their minds over syria in the fight i was alluding to the point of despite comments of wanting to withdraw from syria there were reports of the pentagon or increasing their military presence in syria backing a syrian kurdish militia but ultimately this growing alliance between these key parties is seemed aimed at pushing america out of syria and that ultimately will be a major headache to washington and possibly brings a looming confrontation between american backed syrian kurdish militia and turkish military forces with the turkish president vowing to remove them all from syria

8:40 pm
their products gradually awareness than attitudes are changing. your number to get compared with previous years things have changed demand is now very high among customers. as a result the price of a twenty kilogram unit of small grains is forty percent higher than that for maids . so that has prompted commuter to also create a local company where farmers can now supply their produce and in turn get paid. the seed bank in northern. district is already working with over forty villages. and now we need to do. farmer. off the farmers for that produce. when they are on there was bitterly behind proceed very expensive. for farmers in zimbabwe's drought stricken rural areas small grain seed

8:46 pm
under the radar a bit this year mcelroy is aiming to join the most elite club in golf a masters victory would give him the career grand slam only five players in history have achieved the feat of winning all four majors jordan spaeth is another one of the favorites at augusta the twenty four year old won here in twenty fifteen and knows that the key to victory is mastering augusta's notoriously tricky greens see these greens my first thought isn't where's this go my first thought is was the speed that's needed on his part and it was at times there's just only you do this place or maybe you know a very small handful of others in the world that make you think that way sergio garcia certainly knows how to handle augusta screens he won here last year in a playoff against another of this year's favorites justin rose and with world number one dustin johnson back in form this year's masters field really is wide open.

today america is commemorating fifty years since the death of dr martin luther king and robert merrill from our culture desk is here now to look at some of the tributes and artistic endeavors that musicians and filmmakers have made about him over the years good to see you robin wright let's start with the silver screen what impact has his legacy had on well well be loads of documentaries down the year is obviously extraordinary story a very uplifting story a very interesting story a very tragic story of course at the end but there's also been lots of mini series i know on american t.v. too but concerning the movies that mean many movies and really i want to focus on one the just from twenty fourteen is a film based around one of the most significant events in the civil rights movement although the civil rights act was passed in one thousand nine hundred sixty four
8:48 pm
nothing movie really happened and a year later in selma alabama a terrible injustice took place the americans of course know about david oh yellow stars in this film as i say came out in twenty fourteen martin luther king in selma . that is. our victim was. disappointing martin luther king's call to protest in march nine hundred sixty five the tone changed dramatically when troopers attacked the demonstrators with horses tear gas and clubs the events from that day in selma alabama were turned into a film for the first time in twenty forty three murders. we need your help dr this thing is just going to have to wait it cannot wait you got one big issue i can hundred wife. martin luther king believe nonviolent resistance was the path to black civil rights in the united states but many grow impatient with king's nonviolent stance. they want change now
8:49 pm
a new documentary king in the wilderness shines a light on the conflicts that arose within the civil rights movement a topic which until recently had been largely ignored. the conflicts arose in part from a sense of powerlessness and desperation among african-americans things explored in another documentary i am not sure negro based on the book by james baldwin but. there's little hope here only dead civil rights activists including martin luther king. racism in america isn't history in twenty sixteen not a single black actor all filmmaker was nominated for an oscar the hash tag oscars so white started a debate in twenty seventeen moonlight a coming of age story about a gay black youth won best picture at the academy awards this picture.

fifty years after his death king's dream of a world where one is judged not by the color of one's skin is far from reality but the example of his life of nonviolent resistance continues to give hope that one. it will come. out. amazing movie a famously snubbed at the oscars by the way how about music because he's also influenced music and there's a song that a lot of people don't know was written about him yeah that's true just before we get to that i should say that his speech is music. i mean wonderful but the song you were talking about is this one from stevie wonder in ninety nine he well. everybody knows this song because we've all behind her birthday party but what most
8:51 pm
people don't know is this song was written about mounting martin luther king and it was to help the campaign for martin luther king's birthday made a national holiday in america it was successful because martin luther king days now every third monday in january changes a bit during the year with his birthday was actually generally the fifteenth but it's on a monday another song you two did two songs on all night great album the unforgettable five ninety four one was a ballad right at the end of the album cold m.l.k. all about him but the one again people know is this one pride in the name of love. unfortunately. bono got it slightly wrong to start they said early morning april for it was actually early evening on april the fourth but i mean the sentiment was
8:52 pm
correct and i saw it yeah i was amazed i was always one of the biggest hits of course finally coming back to martin luther king's words these are being used and inspired by many artists over the years. like this one from twenty four here just a few seconds was. one big one they. actually called one day which was a number one hit in here in germany in two thousand and fourteen in france in belgium a number two hit in italy for d.j. bacon who is actually a dutch d.j. and instead he martin luther king's would. be only vocals almost song as sort of a techno track but with his words is famous words of course going for the right the ongoing legacy and power of dr martin luther king thank you so very much i'm greatly appreciative. arnaud to
