the antiquities authority has to inspect the ground and here we discovered an 8 century farm and unearthed a mosque that was pointing to mecca. this rectangular open topped mosque with a round friend was most likely used by farmers mosques dating back to this time have so far only been found in largest cities ditto if the vehicle has been an archaeologist in the region for 25 years he's excited about the find but wants to wait for the samples. to so i think we need to assess the mosques age what we do know is we are dealing with an early structure located in a village it's that's the astounding thing comes. the big a says we can expect many more such discoveries in the desert thanks to improved excavation techniques the mosque in a hut could be just the beginning. it's been 50 here is so one of the defining events of the 20th century in 1969 man

4:05 pm
honorary doctorate for the woman who has led germany for nearly 14 years and appearance that had been announced by harvard university with a glossy promotional. trailer. a video with all the trappings of a hollywood blockbuster yet just a few months earlier the chancellor had announced she would not seek reelection views of the on this will be my last as chancellor of the federal republic of germany. the announcement heralded the end of an era even as other world leaders came and went until america remained a central figure for 13 years she had served as
4:06 pm
a mediator and crisis manager on the world stage. how could such a seemingly unassuming woman succeed in remaining in office for so many years. can be very useful at times because it takes a while to become clear that big things lie ahead. she thought she has a modest unpretentious demeanor and she has 0 interest in material things the. chancellor and. the head of the party she's remained completely free of scandal. she's certainly been able to take advantage of the fact that germany places a very high value on stability. in a way i think america deserves some of the blame for the trouble in europe right a lot of people. believe that bracks it might not have happened i would say she has
4:07 pm
no strategy she has no strategic goal where she wants to take society and that's her true flaw it's discovered stay with your money and keep the sky and there's no red thread of conviction for there is is a pragmatic civic power. 2005 the polls had just closed in what appeared a dead heat but the incumbent chancellor seemed to short of victory. do you seriously believe that my party will agree to an offer of talks under these circumstances after all is said she wants to be chancellor carried away.
4:08 pm
by november 22nd the winner of the showdown was clear the newly elected. chancellor at 51 she was the youngest ever to hold that position. votes in favor 97. her predecessor was not the only one who had underestimated her. even. now become germany's 1st democratically elected female head of government that sends a powerful message to many women and no doubt to some men as well. for us in germany to get used to the idea that was doing the job. she had she never made a song and dance about coming from the former east germany or being
4:09 pm
a woman that would have done nothing for her. being a woman is not a political catch a great so i can't think of anything about that you could explain by saying it's because she's a woman. they're also men who focus on. careful in their deliberations. if anything it would have to be her distain for attention a concept of power also her tendency to avoid showy displays of power fished in which she always saw her as absurd. furnish a fish for. until america was raised in the former communist east germany she spent a quiet untroubled childhood on the outskirts of the town of templin. has been i grew up in the countryside that was one of the things that shaped me. up in a clergyman's household and had tyrants i could discuss anything with. i was an
4:10 pm
upbringing with a lot of intellectual stimulation more than you'd normally see in a small town in east germany and. enough we were only there are you know she was born until a customer in hamburg west germany in 1954 a few weeks before her father except that a post as pastor in the east. if. i was an ordinary child i might have had the odd tantrum or 2 but i wasn't particularly stubborn or rebellious the baelish weisz least. it was a childhood between 2 worlds raised as a christian under a communist regime. like the 1980 s. i'm going to america had a doctorate in physics and was working at the academy of sciences in east berlin her 1st marriage ended in divorce but she kept her former husband's last name marco
4:11 pm
. what was looking like a quiet life as a research scientist was interrupted on november 9th 1989. the wall dividing east from west germany fell. down after she said to me. mutha i've never been much of a civic activist so joining an activist movement isn't my thing she said she'd also considered the social democrats and january 990 they still look like they might do really well here but then she thought that make it on their own we need something new that was her pragmatic mind speaking and then came the east german democratic movement the democratic awakening which included pastor ryan eprom and she said it's chaos there they need me. soon thereafter in spring 1900 until america was appointed deputy spokesperson for
4:12 pm
the 1st and only democratically elected east german government that was the turning point she joined the christian democrats the c.d.u. and began a rapid and grueling rise up the political ladder. young a woman and from the east a fresh face for chancellor helmut west and male dominated city you that's called protege merkel was appointed minister for women and youth in the 1st cabinet of the reunify germany in november 1909 a year after losing the chancellorship cole was still the honorary chair and gruelling patriarch of the christian democrats but then came a scandal. party the c.d.u. had run an illicit slush fund involving donor contributions it was the biggest scandal in post-war german politics. until american progress and made a move that would rock the already shaken old guard. in a prominent daily she wrote an article proclaiming the end of the coal era. a few
4:13 pm
months later merkel was party chairwoman. this was the moment she would later with you know when she 1st believe she could become chancellor. the men thought let's make this mother figure party leader and send her packing after a year. most to the fire that proved to be a huge miscalculation because she sent them packing. in 2005 i'm going to medical and her party had a narrow win her 1st government was a coalition of her christian democrats there were very insistent party the c.s.u. and the deposed social democrats it made little headway at 1st and was slow to implement reforms in her 1st 2 years america was a cautious leader critics said she was just muddling through. i'm somebody who tends to decide on the late. i'm often accused of being slow to
4:14 pm
get out of the starting block slow to take action of letting things drift. but for me it's always important to work through all the possible options as to what should be done and not just as a theoretical exercise or a thought experiment i try to live with them. through turns to hesitate. and wait for majority opinion to emerge before taking a stand but sometimes she gets a job to makes a decision from one day to the next and it's us about math. that goes 1st major challenges chances are came during her 3rd year in office the global financial crisis required intensive management major banks were in danger of collapse and the merkel government provided billions of euros to save them. the
4:15 pm
chancellor assured the public that their deposits were safe. while her diplomatic touch and talent for compromise were often interpreted at home as a weakness abroad they aren't her respect and praise but the 2007. on germany's baltic coast miracle succeeded with a mix of principle and persuasion in getting the assembled leaders to agree on a climate change strategy. she even brought on board u.s. president george w. bush not the most environmentally aware of contemporary statesman. it's a very important quality to be able to engage with your counterparts and to signal to them i take you seriously i'm listening and i want to hear what you have to say . that's what part. of this.
4:16 pm
you underestimate her you've already launched she is always very very well prepared and she knows all the details. so you have to really know the material you want to have a serious discussion with her. the 2009 elections saw the c.d.u. c.s.u. bloc post their 2nd worst showing in 60 years but they still managed to secure a coalition with their preferred partners the center right free democrats. although the economy was struggling the new government cut taxes and took on record new debt thank. you but the dream turned sour as the coalition became beset with internal squabbles. meaningful policymaking proved elusive important debates were overshadowed by rivalries within the coalition. for the chancellor it was an often frustrating experience.
4:17 pm
in late 2010 merkel's government decided to extend the lifespan of germany's nuclear power plants. just. months later it made a dramatic u. turn. and then also in fukushima happened the nuclear disaster in japan and within a week or 2 american had changed course on that and decided no we're going to get out of nuclear power that upset a lot of people in our conservative party that upset a lot of people in german industry they're afraid of rising energy costs but she did it was an emotional sort of reaction to the. nuclear disaster in fukushima. not just but i realize straightaway that this would also affect us all and then i think he decided that we would need at the very least a social consensus when daunting the use of nuclear energy is it off the can
4:18 pm
convince someone with a cannon it is just as i believe it was a kind of overnight decision. she decided to seize the opportunity and also to send a message to society and he has a shaft and her name would be associated with the decision to end nuclear power and she would end up in the history books she spoke. with in germany the fukushima disaster put an end to a discussion that had dragged on for years the longstanding energy policy debate seemingly vanished overnight. merkel's government decided to decommission nuclear plants by 2022 and to rapidly scale up the use of renewable energy. during merkel 2nd term the global financial and economic crisis remained a pivotal issue and developed into a euro crisis. southern euro zone states were in dire straits while greece appeared
4:19 pm
headed for bankruptcy. the german chancellor repeatedly insisted that greece would only receive a bailout if the country agreed to reduce public spending and institute austerity reforms. that we didn't miss depressed. dense ladies and gentlemen thoughts must be focused not on rushing in to help prematurely us. but on ensuring that the entire house is put in order. that stands faced little opposition within her own ranks unlike in greece as athens slashed public sector wages and pensions and fired civil servants protesters in greece singled out one person to blame until america is this she doesn't care a whole what kind of image is being drawn what she cares about is political consistency to shrink in size. this. in
4:20 pm
may 2013 towards the end of merkel 2nd term the n.s.a. spying scandal broke. details emerged of a widespread internet and telephone surveillance program run by washington for many response was too little too late. to stop him ever since we started to talk about the n.s.a. i have repeatedly told the american president that we don't spy on africans it's gone. medicals comments were intended to show resolve but instead revealed impotence. it was only after learning that the n.s.a. had also tune into her own cell phone that an indignant chancellor seemed to mean business the guns of germany's entire government is cowardly and submissive so they don't dare stand up to the us. speaking as a private citizen i would say she was too restrained especially considering she had 1st hand experience of living under a dictatorship. but met approval
4:21 pm
ratings were barely dented by the n.s.a. scandal voters trusted her it seemed in part because she avoided conflict one day lee called her the perfect chancellor for citizens who don't like trouble and don't want to be bothered by politics. with. but when it came to her own political party merkel proved willing to turn her back on traditional positions. for some conservative stalwarts her decisions to phase out nuclear power and to military conscription and support a national minimum wage were hard to stomach. this instance is an entirely different from that of helmut kohl or conrad i don't know. it's hard to believe it's the. but you have to remember she didn't
4:22 pm
make those changes on. the c.d.u. in line with reality. was this her own accomplishment or just a reflection of the changing times by both sides and that side times it. was setting a different agenda from that of his predecessors. over the years. in keeping her private life out of the public gaze she never felt the urge to play to the cameras but her sober down to earth style contributed significantly to her popularity. people see 3 things in her that they like things that don't involve her strategy or her goals. she has a modest unpretentious demeanor. 0 interest in material things that's both unusual and appealing.
4:23 pm
the 2013 general election represented a landslide victory for the christian democrats although it did mean returning to a coalition with the s.p.d. . 3rd term in office would see the economy continue its recovery. on other fronts however the chancellor had major crises to contend with. early 2014 dramatic scenes in ukraine european protests on my don square in the capital kiev led to the ousting of president viktor yushchenko fitch. russia proceeded to annex the crimean peninsula in eastern ukraine pro russian rebels and separatists rose up against the government with the support of moscow. chancellor issued a sharp protest against that intervention and endorsed economic sanctions against
4:24 pm
russia. together with french president francois hollande she embarked on a difficult mission in the capital of bella ruth minsk. u.s. president barack obama left to 2 european leaders to tackle the crisis with russia and try to establish dialogue between the warring parties. levi's. if you compare world politics to a game of chess she knows which pieces to move and when. she feels there's no point in saying that's not only chess piece i want nothing to do with it. she knows that won't move the chess came forward at times like that she does what needs to be done . over the years she has become a highly respected figure of authority on the international stage. perhaps that's because of her political style tends to avoid issuing hastie if unions about rights and wrongs was sufficient even at the international level she prefers to sway up
4:25 pm
all the options and reflect on them this is a vacant. moment. shock when she does make a decision it's a sustainable one and they've done and tried to get tough and it tweaked the. medical help to bring the warring sides to the negotiating table the result was a ceasefire albeit a fragile one. in early 2015 the greek crisis returned to the spotlight the newly elected government rejected further austerity measures the coalition of the left wing to reach the party and right wing nationalists announced its intention to renegotiate all the deals their predecessors had made with international creditors greece seemed on the brink of exiting the euro zone. after protected negotiations the euro group finance ministers agreed to a compromise a package with strings attached. merkel and her finance minister
4:26 pm
a vote of conscience would look persuaded greece to abandon its initial objections and agree to further reforms greece's potential departure from the euro the dreaded grex it at once again been averted. she had. gunstock she already did her case very vigorously and i think that points to an essential feature of angela merkel's approach to politics. she sticks to her guns and expects others to make the commitments they've made. the biggest mistake. they are going to work on shortland made use in their dealings with greece because they broke with the principle of solidarity commission greece miracle was a real villain by a lot of people but she had the courage to keep going to greece and talking to people and she tried to explain the situation in greece and the end of the day greece was able to stay in the euro zone.
4:27 pm
shortly after the prospect of a greek euro exit appeared resolved another crisis emerged in summer 2015 that overshadowed all others hundreds of thousands of migrants and refugees were passing through turkey and greece heading for central and western europe and especially germany. most were fleeing the brutal war in syria. in the face of a humanitarian disaster in the making. took a very clear stand. i like germany as a strong country. as we deal with these issues has to be we have achieved so much we can do it if we encounter obstacles we'll overcome them. germany was to welcome refugees with open arms and initially at least the mood in the country was a positive one. the world caught a glimpse of
4:28 pm
a new unfamiliar germany and chancellor within weeks her international image was transformed from hardline austerity advocate to the chancellor of welcome there was even talk of her winning the nobel peace prize. there's something i think america is going to be remembered about for a long long time around the world the reputation of germany went through the roof after that it was like especially in those states with all my god they let in a 1000000 refugees in 2015 you got to be kidding me. but that example didn't go down so well in southeastern europe where refugees weren't so welcome hungry sooner wrecked a border fence while various balkan states fast tracked the new arrival straight through to austria and germany. so much for the solidarity between european nations the brief summer of exuberant welcome came to a sudden end. and meanwhile found herself accused of positively inviting
4:29 pm
refugees to come. from. there were 2 groups 2 responses those who drew inspiration and encouragement who felt called upon to remain active in the refugee situation to open their doors to refugees. they took a kind of pride in what the chancellor had said heard it as a mark of praise. and then there was the other side which didn't hear reassurance and encouragement but who instead responded with fear. but in this forced off going . that. soon a mood of fear and hostility had erupted in germany as well extremists set fire to refugee hostels and attacked german police officers and journalist the anti immigrant anti muslim piggie the movement enjoyed a resurgence of support especially in the eastern state of saxony where thousands took to the streets. criticism of merkel's refugee policy mounted within her own ranks once again the chancellor's position was divorced from that of her party.
4:30 pm
merkel's rival in the governing coalition hostas a hope for issued a public reprimand at the c.s.u. party conference he forced merkel to stand on stage for 13 minutes while he gave her a dressing down. perhaps they were laughing themselves silly that they take in this very high podium and say who is the big guy on it next to it. as though they're in school and the teacher said you go stand in the corner and be quiet because then came the tirade that arrayed against merkel and her policies she just had to stand. and. that was a travesty whatever their opinion of angle americal many people felt that this kind of treatment did real harm to our political culture. and put. us just.
4:31 pm
cologne on new year's eve 2015 the celebrations near the cathedral became the scene of mass assaults women were sexually harassed groped robbed some were raped the victims described their attackers as men of arabic or north african descent far right populist sees the movement blaming merkel's refugee policy. at their side was the far right party which had initially formed in opposition to the euro and the e.u. bailouts but by then it had become anti immigrant and it joined the. the . country. as i was. finishing school the church that angle america in some way caused or promoted the influx of refugees is absurd for both the. research
4:32 pm
a long time we ignored the thousands of people arriving on lampedusa it was. the thousands droning in the mediterranean. thousands living under terrible conditions in cali waiting to somehow make it to britain. mit in the what we've seen in recent years has been the systematic demonization of the policy that's been given merkel's name. with her statement we can do it i'm going to medical had however inadvertently taken a risk now she was left isolated on the political stage her popularity at home declined . after years of going from strength to strength the chancellor was suddenly floundering. by then thousands of refugees were crossing the
4:33 pm
border every day. the german federal states and municipalities were struggling to cope. under intense pressure until americal set out on a thankless mission to negotiate a deal with turkey that would stem the arrival of refugees. going to merrill is a pragmatist and in that situation she realized things couldn't continue as they were and that's what was behind her decision to stand this is. so germany is strong and yet in that situation germany suddenly looked weak on so now what. she went to out on and indirectly provided you miss about who are to news election campaign i was am and said they will look the other way while he was bombs the kurdish people fears and that we remain silent about his indirect or direct support for the so-called islamic state all to make sure he keeps the refugees away a bitter defeat. within just months the open doors had shut.
4:34 pm
for the 2nd time the chancellor had done a u. turn once again she stood alone between 2 fronts now criticism hailed down from the left and applause came from the right the number of refugees arriving in germany plummeted as quickly as it had risen. the next crisis was brewing britain was in the grips of a raging debate. for months politicians had been whipping up n.t.e.u. sentiment. like the e.u. is making a mess of the everything 1st we have the euro zone then we have the common asylum policy compelled it hugely by angela merkel i what we've seen huge streams of people coming into europe over the course of the last year you know security checks anybody every week we send a $150000000.00 plus money that's placed. that's enough to build.
4:35 pm
these numbers were a fiction put forth by a referendum campaign to leave the european union to remain or to leave in the end a slim majority of british voters decided in favor of bracks it. thank you very much very. you know history. in the record. it was a man with a wandering trick gretz we must today recognise. the decision of the majority of the british people i think she's deeply hurt by britain leaving the european union i think secretly should probably hopes they'll be a 2nd referendum someday and maybe that will be overturned and forced and if the o.p.'s on your own. it's going to imagine that when uncle america was still living behind the iron curtain when germany was still divided on the european union was something very compelling for her now to give us i mustn't. and scenes of it's
4:36 pm
so picked the freedom that europe gave the west and prevailed in the west of our country was something she could only dream of and investigation titles like this could be at an all time quantum but it's something that historians will always be looking at the 2015 flood of refugees coming in from syria to germany and then the brics a vote half year or so later so are those 2 things connected probably they are. across the atlantic the united states was also at a turning point barack obama made a final trip abroad as president. on social media he paid tribute to the chancellor as a close ally. across the board she's always been somebody i can trust and somebody who i think deeply believes in. the role that germany can play and that all wealthy nations can play and not only making our
4:37 pm
countries better but also making the world better their relationship at the beginning of their 8 years together wasn't really that close it was a bit frosty but it evolved and i think it became a really close close friendship there's pictures in the german newspapers of them looking into it like they're the best friends for life and i think medical and obama appreciated and respected each other and i think obama relied on america for a lot of things. a last good luck from obama and a farewell that left a visible dent in the chancellor's normal composure. that with barack obama's departure she was losing one of her most important international allies. the new occupant of the white house had other priorities we are going to make america great again we will make america great again we
4:38 pm
wrote a. great. word soon became deeds it became clear that the relationship between the u.s. and germany was shifting the. time the times in which we could fully rely on office and not she gone by. the end of the universe is in a certain sense important and meaningful to her as a sign and that must make it all the more painful that relations have now become so strained in the wake of this america 1st policy that this cause us america focused . on him fresh and well which doesn't accord with your own understanding of how politics should operate at all under. the shavers politics as the antithesis of seeking to gain advantage at the expense of others always seeks to find that balance. she's resisted trump's efforts to split europe trump keeps trying to get marigold to do deals and stealing things and tries to get medical to convince the
4:39 pm
rest of the europe paean union to do these deals that are favorable to trump but she refuses she pushes that all of brussels so at least trump americal do talk to each other and i think my sense is that trump understands how important miracle is . while that may be true it's not always apparent at their 1st joint press conference donald trump gave on kill americans the cold shoulder. and the americans who were. going to america maintains an unflappable confidence in situations where her counterpart perhaps a man who is critical of her is attempting to provoke her and i hope that what by sitting in situations like that she grit your teeth and maintains her poise and never appears awkward or ungracious. but her response makes it clear that her counterpart has behaved in a way that wasn't right. not that that's one of the positive traits about america
4:40 pm
that she stays relaxed she's willing to talk to anybody she doesn't have this male macho persona about her she's a consummate deal maker and she does it without without an ego she doesn't let or ego get in the way she's just trying to get results. and frappes the money when ascended to the presidency with ambitions to be remembered as a staunch defender of a new europe. in austria 31 year old sebastien cortes became chancellor another in a new wave of youthful politicians that contrast with the chancellor state leadership style. july 2017 at the g 20 summit until america once again sought to win the support of world. leaders for existing agreements on free trade and climate protection in vain within just a few weeks donald trump announced that the us was withdrawing from the paris climate accord abandoning global trade deals and imposing tariffs. those efforts at
4:41 pm
international cooperation were increasingly meeting closed doors. began to seek new partners for her policies. within 2 and a half years she paid visits to 12 african nations some more than once. by strengthening international cooperation and establishing new conditions for development aid the chancellor aims to stem the conditions that lead africans to attempt crossing to europe. africa has now become a centerpiece of until america's foreign policy and development aid has become linked to immigration policy. given your words together we want to send a clear message today that is good and productive neighborly relations between africa and europe are important to us. back at home a fresh crisis was brewing the 2017 general elections brought merkel's coalition in its worst ever showing her social democratic partners lost the most votes in their
4:42 pm
view because the centrist coalition eroded their own base of support. merkel is a genius when it comes to weakening other parties she's taken away a lot of the platforms of the s.p.d. and made them her own the cd was always against the minimum wage poof there's a minimum wage now america gets credit for it. gay marriage is something the city was always opposed in america voted against it but she actually made it possible to have gay marriages in germany because she let the deputies in parliament vote the way they wanted to not to unleash. of course by opening her party to the center and her policy reforms within her own party she was taking a risk i. want and that's the anger of the right wing of her own party. in that sense she does bear some responsibility for the rise of the f.t. and for the fact that the f.t. has been able to garner such strong support on the right wing of her own party.
4:43 pm
for the 1st time to the far right entered the german parliament merkel sought to form a new coalition government with the green party and pro-business free democrats after weeks of negotiations the f.d.p. withdrew. it's just it's better not to govern than to govern and it correctly. americans surely regretted that as did many germans and one was a forced and you have to figure that many people are growing rather weary with this lengthy term in office not to mention always with the same political partner. it's not as appealing as being able to chart a fresh course with someone else. after a vigorous intervention by the german president and an s.p.d. party member a vote the social democrats agree to enter into another grand coalition more than 5 months had passed since the election the longest that the federal republic of germany has ever gone without
4:44 pm
a government. the months of uncertainty extracted their price in the $28.00 teams state elections the parties america's coalitions saw their combined vote dropped by more than 20 percent the left and right gained the most particularly the far right f.t. a trend that solidified in the 2900 european parliament election. their full bow to the reality that her centrist course could no longer command a majority she announced her plans to withdraw from politics. since 1st at the next cd you party conference in hamburg in december i will not stand for election as party leader. second this 4th term in office will be my last as chancellor of the federal republic of germany. in the 2021 federal elections i will not seek another term as chancellor for the christian democrats i think. merkel has been looking for the right moment to lead for a long long time it was one little small incident but she's
4:45 pm
a big soccer fan and after the world cup when the captain phillips quit she was the 1st to congratulate him on that and i thought wow she must admire him for picking the right moment because. that's something i think that's been the back of her mind i think she saw helmut kohl as somebody who stayed a little bit to law. i'm good america's political philosophy had always been one of soft power during the election for her successor as party leader she remained a potent force in the background. and it conveyed comp and power medical's favored candidate became head of the c.d.u. . i think in general germany has become a very prosperous successful country under america she's done a good job steering the ship and people are generally pretty happy with merkel and i'm actually had faith in my beat ups and i'm going to go has always been willing to enter into open sided situations was in situations without an obvious outcome to
4:46 pm
negotiations that was one of her key strengths it was down. over many years the chancellor from the former east germany was able to make her mark on politics often overcoming resistance from within her own party or from international partners her final 2 years on the political stage now lie ahead which will surely bring fresh challenges the last chapter of under america's legacy is yet to be written. from. ringback our show to

4:55 pm
driving home his advantage while the honeymoon vote is that's been going on for the last few months now still in place that really is paying off and he looks set to win big well now own rise to power came of course off the back of him starring in a t.v. show and now apparently one of the candidates in this election is a musician a rock star is ukraine going for a new type of politician. i think marrion of the difference is a very big desire hunger for new faces will be ones that people can trust and know . you're not totally people who have come out of obscurity so that's why this of show business base seems to be one that's working so effectively for now and if this let's keep it also for the rock musician you mentioned there we saw met him earlier in the week and he told me an interesting thing he said if you create
4:56 pm
a develop differently if ukraine hadn't fallen behind its neighbors in the last 20 years he thought it would probably be better if politicians did politics and musicians stuck to music but given that they had failed really to bring this country forward he felt he had no other choice but to get involved and not only. express his preferences but also set up his own party we joined him on the campaign trail let's have a. everything's going to be alright it's a hit that became a campaign slogan for such a good joke after 25 years on the stage in 10 albums ukraine's most famous rock singer is venturing out into a new political stage as leader of a new party called all its voice. in a crowded political scene is starting from scratch promising to end the oligarchs stranglehold of ukraine's economy and stand up to russia. since his rivals are scared and
4:57 pm
playing. the old faces of ukrainian politics were not expecting us to be doing so well in the polls and now they're throwing all they've got into discrediting us and doing everything to stop us taking power away from them. like president selenski before him is profiting from a hunger for fresh faces in ukrainian politics faces but if the media interested previously public eye their back. politics is a part of that decides to take the plunge into politics says look you want to be prince biggest stars in the politics for 28 years we've been we've been waiting for politicians to do something to change this country never happened probably it will be better for musicians to sing and for politicians to do politics it's our turn i hope to do as many things as possible and i'll do my best and when i see that my

mission is accomplished i'm coming back very happily to be just musician. days for this term. between place and ending up with. the polls suggest you could still happen this election day draws closer just one thing seems clear many ukrainians are willing to vote for just about anyone but the politicians. all right nic so clearly a very popular musician but how likely is it that he will end up in government. well the latest poll puts him just over that 5 percent threshold with potentially the smallest party in ukraine's parliament and that potentially could be just enough in coalition with the selenski to give a majority in parliament so potentially there a coalition on the cards between the comedian turned politician and the rock star turn politician for now being very cautious and very god it. seems very open
4:59 pm
to starting a new coalition government with him so we could see that happen very soon all right nick connelly in kiev we thank you for that. well algeria's footballers have returned home to a hero's welcome after their africa cup of nations triumph the players were greeted by in the warmest crowds on the streets of the capital algiers on saturday as they paraded through town on an open top bus proudly display the trophy to their fans algeria beat senegal by one goal to nail on the final in cairo on friday night to claim the cup of nations proud for just the 2nd time in the country's history. french venti bobino has won the stage at 14 of the 2 of holland's a gruelling trek to the top of the legendary 2000 metre high called it on my late

analyzes it one culprit. it is the advertising industry i look for a curry recipe online and suddenly ads for indian cookbooks pop up everywhere big data is it a blessing or a curse our focus today on shift. i'm always online my smartphone is always connected wherever i go along the way i leave digital footprints and help create a pot of what's known as big data. researchers have analyzed close to a 1000000 apps from the google play store they found that 90 percent user data and many of these that send data to several companies that sounds unsettling but does big data have a really affect on my life well let me know if i need my umbrella tomorrow. this vaguer rocket has a new kind of weather satellite on board at an altitude of 320 kilometers

5:09 pm
molecular health checks these databases regularly on a daily basis and compares the results with those from the patient samples. after to get such results tumor cells molecular markers or analyze the process called sequencing doctors at the sheraton a send the results to molecular health. but your results molecular markers are compared with those of thousands upon thousands of other stored in the company's database. the database also contains information about therapies a report is produced to provides doctors with a recommended treatment tailored to the specific characteristics of the tumor cell . that's what this is what we're looking for it's the direction we hope things will go in the future we'd like patients to receive personalized treatment based on molecular changes we can identify during sequencing. the idea behind the project is revolutionary but using data from so many people as the basis for medical decisions
5:10 pm
and possibly superseding diagnosis of the patients doctor is also country. is at the for in germany people are still quite cautious we're afraid to give others access to our data which is understandable as a researcher i'd like to manage my own data and know exactly what's happening to it . but i think we must do away with this idea of keeping it all to ourselves the amount of data is just too large for that. big data has already allowed berlin's charity hospital to identify individual therapies for some 30 cancer patients. treating illnesses with the help of big data that's real progress and it shows that ai and humans can work together for the benefit of mankind. another thing that. is makes human behavior more predictable that's especially interesting for companies who want to target us online with personalized advertising that can still be hit or

5:12 pm
it understand it. but data security specialist cost a normal is more critical he believes that the global trade in data is a multi-billion dollar business from which only a few players profit. google alone earns over $100000000000.00 a year with online. and of course not $100000000000.00 has to be recovered somehow through the products that are being advertised so a single company earns hundreds or thousands of dollars a year from each internet user. then there are the data brokers who profit from collecting and analyzing this flood of data using special software we try to find out who's tracking user behavior the. triangles here represent the trackers the circles the web sites visited. even users who don't log in aren't surfing anonymously with every click the trackers network grows in this test there were
5:13 pm
close to 20 trackers for every web site visited. big data analysis helps link that information and produce a digital profile of the user. and. a profile like this describes the person and their fears their needs and possibly their financial situation allowing for advertising to be tailored to meet their budget or to be described as better than even our best friends could want to conquer. so companies might know me better than my friends do even very sensitive data like that used by health apps is often passed on to data collectors without users knowledge the legal basis for this is sometimes highly questionable. massive amount of data is generated every day it comes from a variety of sources not just the internet. whether on facebook instagram or net flix every day we humans generate 2500000 terabytes of
5:14 pm
data but not all of it on the net visit the doctor and the symptoms and diagnoses are stored in servers this data is often anonymous then passed on to market researchers when you found someone the call length location and contact details are scooped up and become part of big data. brokers encyclopedia defines big data as a monster so large change so fast or so very that it can't be processed with standard software. exactly how much data counts as big is hard to say as it's not stored to analyze centrally i see onus estimate that in the next 6 years the global data spirit will rise to 175 bytes per year one set of byte is equal to $1000000000.00 terabytes one trillion gigabytes one quadrillion megabytes in comparison a 3 minute m.p. tree track is around 3 megabytes in size so ones that are byte can store around 333
5:15 pm
trillion songs processing such masses of data isn't easy there are 3 aspects to consider. hardware aspect what hardware can handle it. second there's the software that processes the data directly. and 3rd there's the algorithms which glean information and knowledge from this data . coming. hardware software algorithms it's a big business. big data is analyzed using software platforms called frameworks they divide data between several high performance servers where it can be processed simultaneously processing that data quickly is key that's where data artisans abroad and best start up comes in they analyze very large amounts of data very fast using an open source platform called apache flink they help create it processes

incoming data in real time and can simultaneously analyze data has already been stored stream processing is a big new thing so it's no surprise that chinese conglomerate alibaba snapped up dozens for an estimated 90000000 euros earlier this year that's great for the startup founders but is it good for society. when healing that poses a risk to the data could be compiled on unaligned in such a way that for instance human behavior becomes more predictable and transparent. a nun could end up limiting individual freedom if i had a science and i couldn't build honestly i'm pretty generous when it comes to my personal data if i look into a service and like it i'm willing to pay for it with my data but maybe the prize really is too high is trading your personal data for free apps all services

5:36 pm
a closer look. is liquid so it's popularity down to the fact that it washes better 1st we need to explain why dirt is removed more easily with soap than without it the reason behind it is a fact compounds that reduce the surface tension of water it's this action that causes dirt particles to separate on the skin but this one so do it any better than the other. it's the same as asking whether warm water is better than cold how effectively it cleans is mainly due to the mechanics of how i wash my hands. and this means careful love the ring as a rule of thumb 30 seconds only then will your hands clean. i mean regardless of whether bar or liquid soap is used. still baso does have a bit of a tarnished image who hasn't encountered its messy leftovers but council actually transmit germs soap may loosen bacteria and viruses but it doesn't kill them

hard to diagnose so a lot of children get infrastructure necessary. armando is 18 his sister alessia 16. they live in a village near coeur in switzerland today they both look happy and well balanced but 10 years ago it was a very different picture and their mother remembers it well. and armando wotton living they were very lively if you are mandarin always had a hard time at school he couldn't sit still feel that shtick the teacher said he used to put his hand up and say you needed to go for a run around school was a big problem for him i went to the pediatrician for advice so we were all tall and . the pediatrician diagnosed both the siblings with a.d.h. d. attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. to help them concentrate better he

prescribed ritalin a drug with the active ingredient methylphenidate which they would have to take every day from then on. the number of ritalin prescriptions to treat a.d.h. d. has risen sharply around the world in recent years. it's a trend that we should be concerned about says psychotherapist and. it's not that easy to diagnose a.d.h. so there are a lot of missed. if you think about 40 to 50 percent of cases are misdiagnosed that patients are prescribed ritalin and there are a lot of side effects. for example related to growth or appetite armando didn't have any serious side effects 1st but the drug didn't start to adversely affect him when he hit puberty. until last molars working to reduce the number of people who are falsely prescribed ritalin. at the end of the 1990 s.

he started researching a new diagnostic procedure for a d h d using an e.g. test to measure brain waves. we measure the patient's brain activity while they're solving tasks so we can see to the millisecond what's happening in the different regions of the brain in this case. to gather more accurate information he carried out a study between 20132017 that examine the brain waves of 580 h.t. patients and compare them with those of healthy people. and their huge quantity of data has enabled us to detect 88. the biomarkers for children and adults. we've also discovered subtypes. and we know know that certain subtypes respond better to redolent and son to other drugs.
5:43 pm
ritalin only works for about 60 percent of the patients. tests showed that armando belongs to a subtype that ritalin isn't suitable for instead of feeling fidgety like he did in elementary school he started feeling listless he got lost in his own world and was unable to structure his day to day life child psychiatrist better get coffee prescribed him another drug that works for his a.d.h. the subtype 1 may have. sometimes psychotherapy isn't enough and the patient needs medication and now because of the data we have on brain physiology we know which drug is the right one and we can justify giving medication to children and adolescents as we know that the psychological strain would constantly increase without it. armando can't do without drugs but at least he's now taking something that really helps me to 9 medicament been if i can use it so i'm really happy with
5:44 pm
the new medication and i can concentrate better i can complete tasks better and i'm more patient when someone asks me something. topical made a good dog. in the past he wouldn't have been able to play this kind of concentration game. now he even does it for fun. that's it for today see you next week and until then let's all try to stay in good shape.

5:49 pm
despite the sweltering heat they're taking to the streets in their tens of thousands but they're concerned about an erosion of their rights and freedoms also coming up to. 2 major airlines suspend flights to the egyptian capital cairo they signed can security concerns but give no further information on the details behind the decision. and ukraine's president cast his vote in the country's staff parliamentary elections live in years a lengthy needs his party to win a majority so he can make good on promises of reform. law. omarion evanston it's good. have you with us anti-government protests in hong kong are showing no sign of letting up tens of thousands of people took to the streets
5:50 pm
on sunday for a 7th weekend in a row the rallies were initially sparked by a controversial extradition bill though the bill has now been suspended the protestors are worried about an erosion of freedoms under chinese rule and say they want free elections. our correspondent phoebe kong is monitoring the situation and she joins us now from hong kong for more so phebe the 7th weekend of protests in hong kong but it seems that this time police are not taking any chances we're hearing about additional security measures what more can you tell us. yaml sphere of today is absolutely very tense a over the protests area right now what i mean here we can see the the team the rally is alive passing through my back and they're going to the government
5:51 pm
headquarters right now and the police have deployed. hundreds if not thousands of police officers around hong kong island to pretend any like balance question happening possibly. be their own today and yesterday we know that the police they have arrested several people all of that they are suspected of produce saying some kind of life bombs and they are having some highly explosive materials in the factory so 6 this is also why one of the reasons why the police say they are very cautious about what's going on today and certainly they the government and also some of the protesters they are worried about fame spoke go out of control after the rally the peaceful rally today. so it's safe to say that china is monitoring what's happening in hong kong very closely it's called the protests
5:52 pm
it's blaming the protest on extremists external forces but how much longer do you think beijing is going to tolerate this challenge to its authority over hong kong. you know you're right this is definitely one off the. largest movement seems hong kong was handed back to china screwy 9097 in 20 years ago and there are some rumors recently in recent weeks that saying that china china saffron they might have a chance to deploy the chinese army to lie to in hong kong to control the situation if the situations really they go out of control and things turn out lindsay but this is a very sensitive move if the chinese government really decide to use de army to control the situation and this will further i ha hum const reputation they follow
5:53 pm
me and this is not something i really used to do that because firstly hungary governments have to declare a state of emergency before the chinese government they have deployed army to control the situation so in the short term this might not happen but in terms of politics and politically it is expected that the chinese government they will tighten their grip over hong kong further because. obviously you know how some governments and the top believe they're carrying them they have lost all the trust and integrity so it is very likely that for a government that the chinese government to protest ok great over hong kong. t.v. con we have to leave it there thank you so very much for your reporting. now british airways and german. flagship carrier look tons have suspended flights to the egyptian capital cairo british airline announced it would not be flying to
5:54 pm
cairo for a week lufthansa said it would resume flights today the airlines say that the measure is a security precaution but they have not given a further explanation this comes as the u.k. united states and other countries have issued travel warnings for egypt. well joining us now for more is ruth michelson she's a journalist who's based in cairo good morning to you ruth so the airlines have said they've suspended flights as a precaution what are they worried about well as you mentioned we know that british airways have suspended flights for the next week lufthansa said yesterday that they canceled 2 flights. which results in the cancellation if you follow the flights today but then that this will resume. and this came as something of a surprising ruth last night. and has said that they won't disclose the reason why
5:55 pm
they suspended these flights on grounds of security but we do know that this decision came off the british foreign office updated it suffice to travelers physics in egypt it still mocks the majority of egyptians see it as somewhere that people should seek their advice before traveling but we also don't know why the foreign office decided to update its travel advice including new mentions of increased threats to aviation while ruth in 2015 terrorist bombed a russian airliner that had taken off from the resort of sharm el shaikh in egypt just how good is security adage of sion airports and what is the current risk of a terror attack. well the flight that you mentioned metro jet 796 a took off from. call in south sinai. that
5:56 pm
airport has seen something of a security overhaul by the egyptian government and some british pop is since the terrorist attack took place there the egyptian government also hired a british security firm control risks to assess security at all of its airports across the country. now it's been reported that the decision taken by british airways came following a routine security assessment of egyptian airports by british officials last week gyptian officials have since said that the security assessment was rated as excellent following this but this doesn't explain why flights were cancelled. michael some reporting for us from cairo we thank you very much ukrainians are heading to the polls today to elect a new parliament ukrainian president vladimir selenski called the snap elections after being sworn into office in mame he's hoping this vote will consolidate his
5:57 pm
power and give him a stronger mandate to carry out reforms the former t.v. actor was elected on promises of tackling corruption and shaking up ukraine's political system but so far progress has been slow. connelly is in kiev and he joins us now for more so nick president selenski actually himself brought forward the timing of these elections just how confident is he that voters will hand his party more power. good morning mary it seems if the polls it's believed that this gamble is paying off the latest polls gave his newly founded policy 7 to the people over 45 percent of the populace support which if it turns out speech true would be more than any
5:58 pm
other you can present had picked up before him it looks like he'll be just short of an absolute majority which will allow his policy to put legislation through ukraine's parliament the right on its own but it really seems like that strategy overly. working on his driving home his advantage while the honeymoon approaches that's been going on for the last few months now still in place that really is paying off and he looks set to win big. well they own rise to power it came of course off the back of him starring in a t.v. show and now apparently one of the candidates in this election is a musician a rock star is ukraine going for a new type of politician. i think marrion of the difference is a very big desire hunger for new faces will be ones that people can trust and know . you're not totally people who have come out of obscurity so that's why this of show business base seems to be one that's working so effectively for now and is
5:59 pm
let's keep it also for some musicians you mentioned that we met him earlier in the week and he told an interesting thing he said if ukraine had developed differently if you crane hadn't fallen behind its neighbors in the last 20 years he thought it would probably be better if politicians did politics and musicians stuck to music but given that they had failed really to bring this country forward he felt he had no other choice but to get involved and not only. express his preferences but also set up his own party we joined him on the campaign trail let's have a. everything's going to be all right it's a hit that became a campaign slogan for circus love. after 25 years on the stage in 10 albums ukraine's most famous rock singer is venturing out onto a new political stage as leader of a new party called voice. in
6:00 pm
a crowded political scene look at you is starting from scratch promising to end the oligarchs stranglehold of ukraine's economy and stand up to russia. since its rivals are scared and playing. the old faces of ukrainian politics were not expecting us to be doing so well in the polls and now they're throwing all they've got into discrediting us and doing everything to stop us taking power away from them. like president selenski before him is profiting from a hunger for fresh faces in ukrainian politics faces but if interested previously the public eye their back. politics is a part of both that decides to take the plunge into politics says look you want to ukraine's biggest stars. the politics for 28 years we've been we've been waiting for politicians to do something to change this country never happened probably it
6:01 pm
will be better for musicians to sing and for politicians to do politics it's our turn i hope to do as many things as possible and i'll do my best and what i see that my mission is accomplished i'm coming back very happily to be just musician. days for this entertainer turned politician between place and ending up with no seats in the polls suggest anything could still happen the next day draws closer just one thing seems clear many ukrainians are willing to vote for just about anyone but the politicians. all right nick so clearly a very popular musician but how likely is it that he will end up in government while the latest poll puts him just over that 5 percent threshold with potentially the smallest party in ukraine's parliament and that potentially could be just enough in coalition with the selenski to give
6:02 pm
a majority in parliament so potentially a coalition on the cards between the comedian turned politician and the rock salt and politician for now being very cautious and very guarded but the team seems very open to starting a new coalition government with him so we could see that happen very soon all right nick connelly in kiev we thank you for that. all right some sports news now and the algeria's footballers have returned home to a hero's welcome after their africa cup of nations triumph the players were greeted by the warmest crowds on the streets of the capital algiers on saturday as they paraded through town on an open top bus probably displaying the trophy to their fans algeria beat senegal by one goal to nail in the final in cairo on friday night to claim the cup of nations crown for just the 2nd time in the country's history.

13 women. 21 stages. 3480 kilometers. and one demand driver to order forms for women because so far it's a men only competition. jacqueline like if we want to show that women can accomplish extraordinary things too by doing something that may look a bit crazy getting people to listen to us to get. their plan is to cycle the entire tour de france all 3480 kilometers exactly one day ahead of the met. we're in brussels where the tour de france will start this year tomorrow these 13 women set off from here. now they're making last minute preparations sorting out
6:06 pm
their helmets jerseys and shoes. places. yet to pre-judge here everybody checks out anyone need to digest plus. more because this isn't dope and this is all legal it's all natural ingredients he's a food supplement. that just. clear florrie is the one behind the dawn on desirable project which roughly translates to let's get women on bikes she's been doing the tour de france every year since 2015 no matter the circumstances. i don't know if you they were the 1st time we did the 2 i had there were just 3 of us and we didn't know if we budgeted enough money on the trip we stayed the family a school tail wind meals and washed out jerseys by hand every evening. and it was just on my you know it was do it yourself basically did you but that was
6:07 pm
a real adventure since a couple. things have become much more professional in recent years. that no other women have a sponsor without this financial support they'd be hardly able to pay for their bike equipment and accommodation. none of the women are professional cyclists claire for example works as a sports teacher and organizes this competition in her spare time. because i receive organizing all this is exhausting but it's ok because it's my passion right now it leaves me little free time for anything else because i'm totally focused on this project. but in one or 2 years when there will hopefully be a women's tour de france it will have paid off. like has its actually think example . in central brussels the morning before the race that women are preparing to set off. tomorrow in just
6:08 pm
a few 100 metres from here the belgian king will send off the men competing in the tour de france. and then someone unceremoniously they're off. unlike during the actual tour de france the roads are not blocked off to cars so they must carefully we in our traffic and there is much less pomp and glamour than during the men's race they have to deal with red lights on coming cars and other challenges. the women will cover a distance of 3480 kilometers cycling through the. the pyrenees and the alps climbing to an altitude of 2770 meters but it's not about setting new records all these women cyclists want is to be treated with the same respect as their male peers. how much you can will soon as i started cycling as
6:09 pm
a sport late when i was 24. and at some points i realised that i'd never seen a women's peloton on t.v. even though there are plenty of women involved in competitive cycling but they never feature on t.v. i wanted to change that. some hardcore science science answered already gathered along the route to get a good view of the men's tour de france quite a few are impressed by the women taking on this challenge. for the sake of the men get all the backing attention they could hopeful but the women don't receive enough. well that you know that's why we're here to cheer them on good enough want to see. anyone up for it could even cycle along with them for part of the journey everyone's invited no matter their gender. i think i have
6:10 pm
a point why is there thought of most for men and not for women surely there's room for both. cycling along with the women has become really popular now for security reasons only 100 athletes are allowed on the road at any one time when i know my mom has so many cyclists have joined us it's amazing that means our message is being heard and that's a fantastic feeling this official. 4 days in 650 kilometers later we're in sandy aid devotion of always mountains tough section lies ahead. but thankfully claire is in great shape and up for the challenge in fact just 2 weeks ago she competed in the french cycling championships. but it's not a steep climb but it drags on. unlike the men who get nutritious snacks passed on to them on the go the women have to pull over their wheat. that along with navigating road traffic slows them down considerably meaning that
6:11 pm
they need almost twice the time then do for a day's stage. a small team of volunteers accompanies the women on their journey helping with preparations. this was even though this is the 2nd year now that oscar meyer has signed up to support them . he even took a break from his student job so we could be here but it's a race against the clock during days 3 weeks we help the women the more time they have to recuperate. carbohydrate heavy food and fruit give them the necessary energy to get back on that bike or else does that way so far things have been go a whole right here but we still have half of the climb ahead of us the toughest bit is still to come the negotiations there. and look for stability of really steep
6:12 pm
we'll see. every day the women spend 8 to 9 hours biking that obviously takes its toll with muscle cramps and the like a common problem luckily they have got 3 physio therapist on the team travelling with them when needed they set up their massage tables in the hotel always in the evenings they're super busy giving the women are up down. yeah richard reeves almost yesterday was a hard day we cycled for 215 kilometers and the last in line she was really painful 7 our muscles got all tense but now i'm getting my toxins message out of my muscles so i'll be ready for tomorrow as. they're not the rush. you know with their busy schedule they don't always have time for an evening rub down often they meet local sports clubs and even mayors after a day's cycling like here and all see for example it tends to garner them admiration those sometimes people doubt they'll pull off the whole tour if you
6:13 pm
think they'll make it to the end but we've been doing this for 5 years and so far only one participant ever gave up that's one out of 22 in the last 4 years 22 made it to the finish line. so there's no reason to believe all 13 of us won't make it this year but it is. because. we're on the opposite women always need to prove themselves because people tend to think that minimal capable is. day 2 in the bush this year clare and her fellow female cyclists are supported by an international women's team with athletes from england the u.s. and australia. australia's paper lion did not mind travelling this far to participate. along the road her 11 month old son is there to cheer her on. since having him it's made even more important to me to
6:14 pm
just show to the next generation boys and girls that women can do exactly the same as men yes we can do things as foster is strong but we can do it and we can do it really well c. each year there are more and more people calling for there to be an old visual women's tour de france but so far these demands have fallen on deaf ears . even though back in the 1980 s. the organizers did one stage a women's race along with the mans but then rescheduled the event in that was the end of it christiane predominate charge of the tour de france doesn't want to tell us what he thinks about this instead he sends this statement mr pradelle moretti answered many times questions about the possibility of organizing during the tour de france a tour de france for women the answer is still the same organizing another race of the same time for 3 weeks is logistically not possible.
6:15 pm
there is some truth in this the tour de france is the world's 3rd biggest sporting event 4500 helpers are needed just to prepare the route and almost 30000 police officers and firemen are on duty to maintain security and some say that staging another race just requires too much work. but i've read up on geo the president of the international cycling union thinks a women's competition could be a great success. so. we will have to work on a solution and examine the technical problems and circumstances i think we can address these challenges at all and i am convinced that women's cycling can appeal to one large audience if you know you and your female athletes will finally get the recognition they deserve. faberge thought about your ex called there the good news is that in 2014 the tour de france organizers did begin staging a one day women's race during the men's competition but for clare that's not enough
6:16 pm
. i asked myself why should we be happy with a one day race when we have capable of going for days at the several stages of days and weeks a one day race is not comparable to one that goes over several stages because over time cycling takes develop and it's something different for viewers to and from a sports perspective as well so i think women are entitled to a proper race. the. officer then also that was. for now much hard work still lies ahead of the cyclists even though they've mastered the 1st steep stages. is still a long way until they reach their final destination paris and it will also take a long time until there's a proper women's tour de france but giving up is out of the question. as i came forward this is the 5th time i'm doing this and i hope i don't have to keep going for another 15 years because it certainly is hard work and it gets harder by

a couple of hours. it was solid effort to get everything shipshape. because in the years if you don't come with a guy some of the staff in there happy that's my job done i don't leave them in pain without movement i think us about enough turn the way they were much thanks i keep a low price. don't know what. the players have all they need for the jewel with this will doff it's very clear that marcus boy is an integral member of the glovebox team. some say he's the bus driver others call him the kit manager for me for me he's motivational coach mentor more. we get along really well. he's as much a part of the changing room but he's so many sides to so many good qualities and it's really nice guy. in shorts he's something of a father figure to the play a relationship that naturally gives rise to its own little conflicts. and i need
6:31 pm
more thinking during the museum they listen to you wouldn't really be my thing but i think you know given the government always has its advantages my daughter is 19 i'm warmer in the car to get a chill sometimes i wish you had some done i've got the car and head so my slave. with the stadium chores done baucus heads back to the hotel to pick up the players and good time. to fill in for part of the biggest worries getting bank here on time still makes me slightly nervous i don't want to be late and i'm pretty much rooting for all i'm to be here around a quarter of last year the. men seek knowledge doing up for hours before kickoff norbit declare rise of the stadium you know the routine inside out but it's special every time. when i'm on when i
6:32 pm
start getting nervous that's when i'll stop doing it straightaway herself. ah. i think you should be a bit nervous when it's your job to communicate with 80000 people. by job he's been doing a british adult men since 1992. students 127 years. there's folk on the south terroristic i've been doing it since 99 i've never seen anyone else there. and you can't separate an old footballer from his match day rituals yeah commercial chances are the greatest but of all the last time we won side of their own g.g. again to. skip 2 points although i always have a little energy to belmont if it. also obligatory the pre-match sausage with a few colleagues but this time someone is missing. i see my one now which is new
6:33 pm
coming today. there's also a positioning issue with the brought the stand. in the dispenser should be on the other side. but there must at oracle brings good tidings. sense mustard yellow stuff that's a goal for dortmund sort catch on the red for the opposition because any clear read more of a mix with a lot of yellow so for one part of the audience. that's the place so i. see now i do the top course you could put the best face possible. and so to the main event preceded by a telling display of devotion on the south terrace. that the father brought his son along that's why the stadiums jam packed every time we really have to preserve this law of football experience i feel right now.
6:34 pm
kickoff is fast approaching and nobody can get to know how much this game was in mind over. the back of both but spirits are high the balls are doing well out on the pitch to meticulously tended by peters i want another highly respected colleague here. this he said softly and he's a friend as well yeah been featured by so we enjoy helpful kids from place to hater and the good job he does with his staff i want to say straight out that we've got the best page in the book mostly get it right and it's one of the best. ground keepers services are required on a daily basis training. mark will also need to pitch back there in about half an hour if you could move that one again. but it's good to see that i'm trying to.
6:35 pm
reach his work quite literally leaves the routes for the walls on the field success . then fade and his team operate to the highest standard. i've often said to the players it's the standard we should be aiming for. it's an ongoing process most of those in the power going to sleep would seem have a lot of other people backing them up in much of staple food if you dimension later and his colleagues are possible this team on the left and this is really tough work a master of his trade to make that masters one of golf's top tournament's is a job on the side for peter. cut off from oh i've worked about 8 times that we'll gust a masters in the stimulus from that cause there's always a mint condition for the trolls monotonously when they do something there they do it properly i love that this was just me but. a passion for playing surface quality and here is the next acid test. watermarks really fast like
6:36 pm
a much detroit serious. honestly. against an over high stakes dobby encounter for peter and his pitches well. this is a little noisy. but you know it's often a guy with balls but chasing european however battling the drop no blade of grass remains uncontested it takes its toll. by a lot of slides tackles and one on ones are never good news for the pics but will fill in the divots and smooth out the routes at half time he got an offer that hopefully the score not a goal by the bushies but. just before the break peter gives his own team talk. but i feel the same procedure is usually let's go over. the cast and you'll have to clear away the paper back there and watch out i'll be richer in the whole pitch again how fast is predicted just going to defend. they have
6:37 pm
a quarter of an hour to get the pitch back into the best possible condition that means removing the confetti from the home and. catching up any on field damage and giving the grass another good watering the halftime effort pays off as both but to school best 2nd goal. and then. 2 well what strikes on an equally well surface. coming up will be and what we want to bitch that is amenable to that kind of technical football right through to the finish in north america where the players can still pass the ball around smoothly but i think it was in the 2nd minute when we made it 31 it's always nice for us to see a pitch still in decent condition after 90 minutes on. 3 points earned on a good pitch that's satisfactory day's work. and that's what we want to city that makes the following week easier everyone's in good form know i'm feeling
6:38 pm
a long face of the game. with creators o.l.f. pack the walls native turf just that big green. it's matchday in disposal with local rivals munching clap but the visitors heading into the stadium blacker feels the usual mix of emotions anticipation and he will make out moments when you look at a 54000 people in one huge rule right and tension. will sit there you know sitting there enjoying the match your constant not waiting for something to happen and one of them totally focused and she can't let it slip through a number of getting. the distilled off arena despite the usual worry happily compounded by the players. you don't want to hear it's a running gag where harkin strides from back to justin golf short of on the traffic jam over the dolphins and marcus boyer has got his charges the stadium in could

sanctions on iran after the seizure of a british flag for oil tanker on friday tehran says the tanker was violating international rules also coming up to ukraine's president cast his vote in the country's snap parliamentary election but if he has a lead he needs his party to win a majority so he can't make good on promises of reform. i'm married to evanston it's good to have you with us. britain is considering imposing fresh sanctions on iran following the seizure of a u.k. flagged oil tanker in the strait of hormuz on friday warning comes as audio emerged of a tense exchange between british and the rainy and navy officers recorded moments before iran rate of the vessel. for weeks lead threatened to retaliate then
6:50 pm
late friday a rainy and revolutionary guard commandos hauled bring over the stand and peril made their move reading the british flagged oil tanker in international waters and forcing it to seal to iran. britain has demanded the release of the vessel and condemned what it called a hostile act. safety and security of british and international shipping in one of the most important seaways in the world and that is why we are calling on iran to reverse this illegal we are looking for ways to deescalate the situation but we are also very clear that we will do what it takes to ensure the safety and security of british and international. stana in peril now docked in the iranian porter. it's $23.00 crew said to be in good health but audio exchanges

6:52 pm
u.k. insists it's upholding international law. for more let's bring in our london correspondent charlotte pot's charlotte we heard in that report just now u.k. foreign secretary jeremy hunt saying he's keen to avoid the u.k. being pulled into a conflict in the gulf but this is a significant escalation so how worried is britain about the risk of an open conflict. now senior military officials here in the u.k. are extremely concerned about this incident i mean we're talking about a british flag ship in the gulf being seized by iran and that is seen as a major international crisis those military officials warning today that the government must focus on this iran crisis or. maybe otherwise slight into war and it is seen as a major international crisis senior military officials have also been saying that
6:53 pm
the government has been distracted by the leadership race by the leadership race about who is to replace to resign may as prime minister in just 3 days time this is ongoing boris johnson is running for this position as well as jeremy hunt boris johnson being a former foreign minister and jeremy hunt the current foreign minister and now boris johnson if he makes it into downing street he is somebody that knows the foreign office well he knows how to deal with a diplomatic incidents of this so what he is not a warmonger he's not reckless but he's also known to be unfocused not detail oriented so this is seen for some as concern on the other hand you have jeremy hunt too has really been the face of this iran crisis in the u.k. has been very present and he will probably most likely announce sanctions new
6:54 pm
sanctions on iran tomorrow among them acid freezing and that. he will announce new economic and other measures tomorrow so he's really been very present and all of this. just briefly if you can is this current international crisis expected to have an impact on the outcome of the vote for britain's prime minister . no it most likely won't because tomorrow the paper ballots will close 160000 members of the conservative party have been voting these past weeks on who will make it into downing street jeremy hunt o'barr is johnson and this race really has been about domestic issues most for almost breakfasted and whether the u.k. will leave the european union on october 31st boris johnson has sworn to that and that really resonated with the conservative membership so most likely we will see
6:55 pm
boris johnson moving into downing street number 10 on wednesday and most likely he will also keep his rival jeremy hunt on as foreign minister because of course at this time with an international crisis like this it would be good to have a little bit of stability in the foreign office r i w a charlotte hawks in london many thanks indeed. let's get a check now of some of the other stories making news around the world british airways and germany's flagship carrier live tons have temporarily suspended flights to be egyptian capital cairo be a announced it would not be flying to cairo for a week lufthansa said it would resume flights today the airlines say that the measure is a security precaution but did not give a further explanation. pro-democracy rallies are underway again in hong kong for the 7th week and protesters are taking to the streets to maintain autonomy from

6:57 pm
our idea connally is in kiev and he joins us now for more so nick just how confident is president selenski that voters will hand his party more power. good afternoon miranda well if the polls are to be believed he is certainly on course for probably the best result a sitting ukrainian president has ever achieved over 45 percent just short of 50 percent majority so it looks like he will need a coalition to pass laws speaking to people here at this polling station in a middle class suburb of kiev there is still a lot of support for so lets go around albeit a little less enthusiastic and it will less. unencumbered by questions than it was just a couple of months ago during the presidential election obviously this is a parliamentary election a bit more complicated more options on the table less of a black and white choice but it does seem that he's gamble to pull those problem attractions forward and capitalize on his honeymoon with the electorate does seem
6:58 pm
to be paying off. well the left his own rise to power came of corus off the back of him starring in a t.v. show and now apparently one of the candidates and this parliamentary election happens to be a musician a rock star nick why are voters turning away from traditional politicians. i think the answer is disappointment ukrainians are deeply disappointed that this country has failed to live up to its huge potential in this forum behind its neighbors such as poet in terms of economic and social. standards of living and people really have had enough of a political. front runners in selection of former president bush and co from a promise of 2 machine co there's a real desire for fresh faces but people want to have people that they have some kind of knowledge of and so it seems like showbusiness is the perfect springboard for that entry into politics people that have been on people's radars for years but haven't got that baggage haven't got those associations of corruptions and scandals
6:59 pm
we went to see. the rock musician you were talking about on the campaign trail let's have a look. everything's. going to be all right it's a hit the became a campaign slogan for so. after 25 years on the stage in 10 albums ukraine's most famous rock singer is venturing out onto a new political stage as leader of the new party pulls the voice. in a crowded political scene starting from scratch promising to end the oligarchs stranglehold of ukraine's economy and stand up to russia. says his rivals a skit and playing dirty. the old faces of ukrainian politics were not expecting us to be doing so well in the polls and now they're throwing all they've got into discrediting us and doing everything to stop us taking power away from the.
7:00 pm
present selenski before him is profiting from a hunger for fresh faces in ukrainian politics will be faces but if interested previously public their backgrounds and their politics is a part of both have decided to take the plunge into politics since you want to give prince biggest stars. the politics for 28 years we've been we've been waiting for politicians to do something to change this country never happened probably will be better for musicians to sing and for politicians to do politics it's our turn hope to do as many things as possible and i'll do my best and what i see that my mission is accomplished i'm coming back very happily to be just musician. these days for this entertainer turned. between 3rd place and ending up with no seats at the polls suggest and he could still happen this election day draws closer
7:01 pm
just one thing seems clear many ukrainians are willing to vote for just about anyone but the politicians they know. very popular musician but will he end up in government. well that's the $1000000.00 question miranda will that is fame will that celebrity translate into votes at the polling stations the reaching the poll ratings are all over the place as we said in that report somebody can sort in 3rd position of the stealing to get into parliament failing at that 5 percent hurdle at the moment though it does seem like he could just pick up the right number of votes treacly be a perfect the coalition partner at least in selenski is in the eyes of his party servant of the people getting just those votes that selenski needs to get his majority in parliament and it really fits into that narrative with new faces a new generation rather than since to having to form a coalition with people who have been in government for decades look at you understandably as the potential junior partner being very guarded and very quiet on
7:02 pm

hello and welcome to drive with a d w motor magazine today the race of the century the formula visit switzerland. not small or huge just sporting the audi t.t.'s. and mercedes new giant the g.l.'s. in the us more specifically in utah we have our 1st encounter with a 2nd generation of the g.l.'s from mercedes and the fast open spaces even this 7 seater looks tiny but don't be fooled it has grown by 8 centimeters to an impressive 5.21 meters long and 1.951. it's just what a lot of american and chinese customers were asking for but hard to imagine how this will cope with the narrow streets and car parks in european city. even so
7:20 pm
how do other motive journalists like the new g.l.'s we collected some 1st impressions. thomas says what he particularly know this is among the new g.l.'s that is relatively agile for its size that's probably because who it's new suspension technology and that's even true compared to the geo he would. has a shorter wheelbase and is a little more agile but for this long wheel base he thinks it's still fun to drive and when it comes to comfort especially thanks to the air suspension it's near the top of his class. at hillary sister's mercedes benz likes to call the g.l.'s the class among issue and she thinks that's a really good comparison and has just about every feature that has a very attractive design that still radiates elegance i'm really impressed obviously with the transition to the new platform i had driven g e so i had a pretty good idea that it would be an improvement but for
7:21 pm
a vehicle of the sauciest it drives a lot more exciting than the old one well it's huge i mean i saw it for the 1st time i'm like wow driving this in europe it's yeah i can imagine it's more for the american market it's big it's very big. technically than geo lashes closely related to a smaller brother that. they share a platform but the g.o.'s is $25.00 centimeters longer both as she leaned models are built in the us. is that this question for the old one is more around now so personally i like it more because it's more in proportion and mostly the rear. end that not only looks good it also offers a maximum load capacity of 2400 leaders. yet well they definitely renewed the interior i like the definitely the center console with the new shapes of the of the of the evidence. the interior is like
7:22 pm
typical ms it is they're rolling the interiors these days. the $212.00 inch displays are already standard on the g.l.'s what's really relaxing are the various massage programs which can be selected on the right display passengers in the rear can conveniently operate their seat functions such as air conditioning and massage using a detachable tablet of course voice control is also. possible. a mercedes. i'd like to go to salt lake city. starting right now to salt lake city it's not rhys's says the workmanship is top notch as expected the materials are beautiful and she likes the way you're really can choose what you want technologically the vehicle has everything you need what she likes is that you can hold on here in the middle and have had gives it a bit of a s.u.v. flavor. alongside the 270 kilowatt 3 leader in
7:23 pm
line 6 cylinder gasoline engine which will not be available in western europe for c.d.'s his own for the g o s 588 v.a. with 360 kilowatts of power and a whopping 700 new meters of torque that allows it to sprint from 0 to 100 kilometers per hour in 5.3 seconds despite weighing 2 and a half times. in europe 2 diesel versions with 210 and 243 kilowatts will be the 1st on the market by the russian was very impressed with the v.a. even thinks it's well matched to the american roads america new vigor i'd say and it's not that i am so but it's tidy it's resolved as has good steering feel it feels balanced and feel safe but it's very much looking forward to driving the speak a little beyond roads and new zealand just somewhat different to what we found of the united states well i had the the 580 and i think it's
7:24 pm
a very fast cars specially with the e.q. boost engine so i think i see more and more excited about the aims becoming. small cars are often cute but seldom fast this car is the exception bright orange with ford tailpipes that gives just day ended up. we take a look at the audi t.t. yes. the car just or julia morrow says out he is giving the t.t. a facelift 4 years after it went on the market they focused on 3 main areas design performance and the equipment they were testing the new t.t. and it's t.t.s. for him to see what has changed. from the front the d.t.s. looks white dominated by the mighty single frame grill and large air intakes on the
7:25 pm
side. and integrated from the lift side skirts and a wide diffuser emphasize the sporting or so the audi t.t. has coupe a from every angle and that's nowhere more evident than from behind where ford tailpipes an error outputs til motorists they might have trouble keeping up. the julian says with $225.00 kilowatts instead of $228.00 the new t.t.s. is actually less powerful than its predecessor this is due to the particulate filter for the new european emissions standard but that doesn't really matter because the new engine has about 22 meters more toward. the $2.00 leader ts as high
7:26 pm
has a maximum torque of $400.00 newton metres giving it is 0 to 100 kilometers per hour time of just 4.5 seconds the top speed is electronically limited to 250 kilometers per hour prices for the t.t.s. who pays started $54400.00 euros in germany. says 9 out of the $10000.00 customers have ordered. a car with a dual clutch transmission that's why out he decided to drop the manual transmission completely for the facelift that's good because the new s. tronic was 7 instead of 6 gears shifts extremely well it's lightning fast and surprisingly convenient. the interior is high quality and kept. the audi t.t. as who pays control center takes over the danish board everything can be found here
7:27 pm
this eliminates a conventional infotainment display in the middle. as sports seats are standard and they give excellent holden powerful acceleration for end dynamic cornering. once again l.t. is calling the t.t.s. coupe a 2 plus 2 seater and with good reason not a 4 seater there's no point in looking for a room here instead the 2 rear seats serve as storage space for a bag or the like under the large tailgate is the trunk over all the t.t. has has a storage volume of 305 to 712 liter. he says you have to admit the t.t.s. is a real sports car it's very good on the road steers really well and has a real talent for the curves. thanks to all wheel drive and t.t.'s is able to
7:28 pm
stay in control even in wet conditions it's good suspension also helps as it does without exaggerated firmness even in dynamic much. julian says there's not much to complain about but outings refinement comes with the high cost 54400 euros for 225 kilowatts by comparison 452000 euros you can get a b.m.w. m $240.00 guy extra with 6 cylinders that. both way again is 7 groundbreaking record with its i.d.r. the goodwood festival of speed in southern england for the 1st time an electric racing car was faster than a formula one racing car. covered the 1.86 kilometer race track and 39.90 seconds in the 500 kilowatt hour like race car improving on
7:29 pm
a longstanding best time by 1.9 seconds. b.m.w. has unveiled the 1st fully electric many and combines environmentally conscious driving pleasure with the dynamics of an electric drive the electric motor produces $135.00 kilowatts and the vehicle has a range of 235 kilometers though that depends on how much driving pleasure you have on the way the battery is housed in the vehicle floor to achieve a sporty low center of gravity and it doesn't affect your luggage while you. are gone chantilly in france is one of the top events when it comes to car design that takes place at the chateau de sean tony or chantilly palace every 2 years always alternating with the among classic this year the event celebrating its 5th
7:30 pm
anniversary prototypes in classic cars are presented to a panel of experts here in the hopes of winning a prize. producers like collections also use the event to display their very own art projects the main attraction is probably this multicolored you x. by german urban artist many touring the you spray paint to transform the car into a unique work of art. for the 55 he says his goal was to reflect time through color so he used the colors lexus use when it was founded look back in 1809 he also used to extreme colors too which are supposed to reflect dynamism that the here and now but. other u.s. interpretations by other artists some of which were even finished on site can be
7:31 pm
seen here. a special reason to celebrate for lexus l c convertible concept is being awarded the price. folks wagon can take choice from receiving a prize to the id buggy concept is the public's favorite and a unique aspect is that world famous fashion designers have to be layered outfits specifically to match the car. you design cian clothes michelle says he believes it's very important to keep people excited about movement and mobility but he says we have a natural urge to move and should be able to do it in a sustainable and fun way that's why he thinks it's important to display concepts like the the company is also planning to put this car into production for this all to often not supporting. the cars go for one last drive before receiving the prices
7:32 pm
. one of the happy winners is heinz will go to with his ferrari 340 a.g.t. c l m. besides what he says it's a very original car the pain to still original it was used in many races including limo and it never crashed it was never altered so the paperwork is still in its original condition and back then it really was painted not glued onto the car like transfers or stickers today. he likes cars that tell a story and this card tells a nice story just 3 cars of this kind were built a true rarity. a volvo x c 60 is one of the swedish company's most important models the 1st generation dominated the brands worldwide sales for
7:33 pm
a decade the 2nd generation has been available since 2017 how does the compact s.u.v. compare. what car to surmount is correct likes is the engine the $184.00 killer what t. 5 offers proper acceleration once you step on the gas pedal what he's wondering about the decision to build a gasoline powered car here in europe diesels and plug in hybrids which will vote also produces have a significant advantage over this model when it comes to fuel consumption it's claimed to be $9.00 leaders per 100 kilometers but in reality you can expect double digits. i don't you know me. and up this is. the f.c.c. actually can accelerate from 0 to 100 kilometers per hour and a brisk 6.8 seconds its top speed is electronically limited to 220 kilometers per
7:34 pm
hour in germany the x c 60 starts at above 57 pounds near us. to says he usually likes direct steering but what this will has is just a bit too direct for him that said the steering isn't really too direct but combined with the high center of gravity and just seems that way especially when matching the wheel left and right on curves he says it feels like he's being shaken and that's something he doesn't really like. despite its compact measurements of around 1.9 meters wide 4.6 meters long and 1.7 meters tall the boy hallways almost 2 turns. to increase comfort while driving global offers and dish an acoustic leasing.
7:35 pm
but much as doesn't find it to be all that quiet he says there's a lot of noise from the lower chance she went into arrives over and even roads are bumps so he thinks they could have done a better job for a car of this price. by them all attendees are prized. justifies that high base price with a multitude of standard safety systems like braking a system that includes human and animal detection lane departure warning and active steering assistance and evasion maneuvers. not just says that's not all and there are extra cost options like the pilot this is system here the volvo stays in wing and follows the pace set by the car in front and speeds up to 130 kilometers per hour. it's meant to make driving less stressful
7:36 pm
especially on the highway. and he thinks that would be very useful in a company car or for people who are on the road a lot for their work. it's a feature that helps them get to their destination and greater comfort. it's on supply. and speaking of comfort the interior coffers a mix of aluminum light wood and leather finish to a high standard. mater says as beautiful as this car is the x c 60 is not a bargain you shouldn't really be reading and driving but here it says volvo x e 65 with the inscription this model has a base price of $57450.00 euros in germany there are quite
7:37 pm
a few i dish no features in this particular car though so that he wouldn't be paying $6570.00 or even $75.00 but 79550 euros for it and this makes him wonder where this is justified for a car where the road noise is so noticeable. buys an. odd. formula east season is just come to an end. and we can look back on a very special race the formula eeg ram prix in the swiss city of burn an event that balances a passion for motor sport and the question of sustainability that's also how the drivers see it. coming in from their information because i don't think that you
7:38 pm
should not go racing on the field say i want to be a mexican basketball but i think it's kind of cool so you know we are spreading the i think message which is good club environment in that the same time we enjoy having you know and to determine where i struck. sebastian boy me getting ready to race in his home turf in switzerland once again all drivers check out the route 2.75 kilometers with an altitude differences to 50 meters a tricky course. because i told you. in the simulator also listing the really special going back to what i've seen in this image of i did so very challenging circuit. with a new sun team blamey is one of the world's top formula the racers has already been world champion once and runner up twice. now he is in the spotlight at the 1st car race and burn for more than 65 years.
7:39 pm
it's amazing to be to be here and there you know it's even closer to where i was born so i really try to enjoy the only way to get on the only think of all to try to enjoy it because i don't know if it's ever going to end. it's been a long wait even though car racing has a long tradition here this city circuit was legendary in the 1950 s. the best formula one drivers in the world competed here at the burn grand prix. but car racing disappeared from switzerland in the wake of motor sports biggest catastrophe over 80 people were killed in an accident at lamont in france in 1055 this was parliament then decided no more races in switzerland a ban that still applies today.
7:40 pm
but switzerland made an exception for formula important because it wants to promote electric vehicles they have a long tradition in switzerland there has been electric public transport here for a long time along with car free inner city and environmentally friendly technologies in the past this was have repeated li shown forward thinking with their inventions switzerland wants to become carbon neutral by 2050 at the latest it's a goal that to supported by almost everyone. the i would be how i would feel. british now who heads engineering group a.b.b. switzerland says his company has a long tradition of electric mobility and its predecessor company electrified a swish tram line in 1006 so it's something they've been doing throughout their history and also when it comes to road traffic the world is developing very rapidly . so it could be typically swiss that the drivers arrived at the autograph session
7:41 pm
by public transport less than 4 hours before the race. to raise. kind of guy but you know i try to be the best i can i'm going to try to to preserve. a name paul for you know in the klamath and environment from my side you know i do the best i can but they look pretty crazy. and yet with every on a graph it's a fashion when he sides with every selfie he also helps promote electric mobility. and then it's time to race. with all fully we can finish since god they're. going to use in top form in the 3rd to last race of the season but he knows the competition will be tough and burned.
7:42 pm
last. week.
7:43 pm
moves forward one position every time we me is still in 3rd place. but want to. cut. cut. cut cut. cut. cut. cut. but it's the french mensch honoring her and who's 1st across the finish line and at least is able to hold onto his 3rd place. to be nervous you know
7:44 pm
because i was a bit scared. to do a mistake you know but that the end to finally i'm in a position is good. it's too soon to say if the formula even byrne has changed anything but 130000 spectators experience the power of the latest environmentally friendly technologies and seeing that even races with electric cars can be really exciting. and next time on drive and electric bubble car from switzerland we test the my. and driving with natural gas the sea at our own it.
7:45 pm
7:46 pm
is close to the toppling of the president. i am still trying to get a civil war i don't know the banana this united fruit company. the history of the u.s. corporation that determined the face of central america. unbeknown to us and republics and i'm 15 man spotty talking. i want to see what's going on the knowledge you see the birth of that you know what you have to do to fight it. the sharp microscope would have been but the knowledge it would come back at better and better over the years we will end the bad ol for example of the fire when in fact the both of molecular detail and therefore
7:47 pm
a lot of the bottom of the pie did much more easily work speculate about what's going on in 2050 i can't imagine that you would understand the cause of god much better and then reduce the number of cancer cases there is the opportunity to live a much more forgiving life because many you see this shortcoming causes of aging and the counteract that the large degree at the what they had before long a period of life. robots are still in the development phase. but it's going to happen when they grow . will humans and machines be able to peacefully co-exist or are we on the verge of a robot collapse. if we just bumble into this totally unprepared with our heads in the sand fusing to think about what could go wrong then let's face it it's probably
7:48 pm
going to be the biggest mistake in history. artificial intelligence is now spreading through our society. will experts be able to agree on ethical guidelines or will this technology create deadly new much thomas weapons systems. place robot collapse starts aug 14th on d w. this is d.w. news live from berlin and the war of words escalates in the gulf britain

threatening sanctions on iran after the seizure of a british flag for oil tanker on friday as foreign minister calls for quote prudence and foresight also coming up hong kong anti-government protesters are on the march again taking to the streets in their tens of thousands they're concerned about an erosion of their rights and freedoms. and ukraine's president who cast his vote in the country's snap parliamentary election nears the end you need for his party to win a majority so he can make good on promises of reform. by marrying evan steyn it's good to have you with us britain is considering imposing fresh sanctions on iran following the seizure of a u.k. flagged oil tanker in the strait of hormuz on friday the warning comes as audio
7:50 pm
emerged of a tense exchange between british and iranian navy officers which was recorded moments before iran rate of the vessel. for weeks lead threatened to retaliate then late friday and revolutionary guard commandos. imperil made their move reading the british flagged oil tanker in international waters and forcing it to seal to iran. britain has demanded the release of the vessel and condemned what it called a hostile act. safety and security of british international shipping in one of the most important seaways in the world. that is why we are calling on iran to reverse this illegal we are looking for ways to deescalate the
7:51 pm
situation but we are also very clear that we will do what it takes to ensure the safety and security or british and international. stand in peril now docked in the iranian ports of. its $23.00 crew said to be in good health but audio exchanges between a british warship and the iranian special forces moments before the capture reveal the tension in the region. obstruct. the angry stern or in. its own. words. i run into burt. security the number. of. international. incidents of the andresen of the coverage that got us out of. iran's foreign minister on a visit to venezuela is reported to view the seizure as for top following the
7:52 pm
impounding of an iranian vessel in gibraltar earlier this month the grace one was seized by british forces suspected of breaching sanctions on syria for its part the u.k. insists it's upholding international law. for more let's bring in our london correspondent charlotte parts search charlotte we heard in that report just now u.k. foreign secretary jeremy hunt saying he's keen to avoid the u.k. being pulled into a conflict in the gulf but the. this is a significant escalation so how worried is britain about the risk of an open conflict. now senior military officials here in the u.k. are extremely concerned about this incident i mean we're talking about a british flag ship in the gulf being seized by iran and that is seen as a major international crisis those military officials warning today that the
7:53 pm
government must focus on this iran crisis or. maybe otherwise slide into war and it is seen as a major international crisis senior military officials have also been saying that the government has been distracted by the leadership race by the leadership race about who is to replace to resign may as prime minister in just 3 days time this is ongoing boris johnson is running for this position as well as jeremy hunt boris johnson being a former foreign minister and jeremy hunt the current foreign minister and now boris johnson if you makes it into downing street he is somebody that knows the foreign office well he knows how to deal with a diplomatic incidents of this sort he is not a warmonger he's not reckless but he's also known to be unfocused not detail oriented so this is seen for some as concern on the other hand you have jeremy hunt
7:54 pm
too has really been the face of this iran crisis in the u.k. he's been very present and he will probably most likely announce sanctions new sanctions on iran tomorrow among them acid freezing and that will he will announce new economic and other measures tomorrow so he's really been very present and all of this bush arledge is briefly if you can is this current international crisis expected to have an impact on the outcome of the vote for britain's prime minister. no it most likely won't because tomorrow the paper ballots will close 160000 members of the conservative party have been voting these past weeks on who will make it into downing street jeremy hunt johnson and this race really has been about domestic issues most foremost
7:55 pm
breck said and whether the u.k. will leave the european union on october 31st or as johnson has sworn to that and that really resonated with the conservative membership so most likely we will see boris johnson moving into downing street number 10 on wednesday and most likely he will also keep his rival jeremy hunt on as foreign minister because of course at this time with an international crisis like this it would be good to have a little bit of stability in the foreign office are ideally a charlotte pots in london many thanks indeed. let's get a check now of some of the other stories making news around the world british airways and germany's flagship carrier live tongues are temporarily suspended flights to the egyptian capital cairo b.a. announced it would not be flying to cairo for a week of tons of resumed flights today the airlines say that the measure is
7:56 pm
a security precaution but did not give a further explanation. in portugal more than a 1000 firefighters are trying to put out the wildfires that are sweeping through the center of the country strong winds have complicated efforts to control the blazes one village was evacuated as a precaution. to hong kong now where anti-government protests are showing no sign of letting up tens of thousands of people took to the streets on sunday for a 7th weekend in a row the rallies were initially sparked by a controversial extradition bill that bill has now been suspended the protestors are worried about an erosion of freedoms under chinese rule and they say they want free elections. our correspondent phoebe kong is monitoring the situation and she joins us now from hong kong for more so phebe the 7th weekend of protests in hong kong but it seems that this time police are not taking any chances we're hearing
7:57 pm
about additional security measures what more can you tell us. yaml sphere of today is absolutely very its hands over the protests area right now what i mean here we can see the the team the rally is alive passing through like my back going to the government headquarters right now and of holies have deployed. hundreds if not thousands of police officers around hongkong island to pretend any like balance question. possibly. later on today and yesterday we know that the police they have arrested several people all of late they are suspected of producing some kind of life bombs and they are having some are highly explosive materials in the factory so 6 this is also one of the
7:58 pm
reasons why the police say they are very cautious about what's going on today and certainly the governments and also some of the protesters they are worried about face will go out of control and after the rally the peaceful rally today. well it's safe to say that china is monitoring what's happening in hong kong very closely it's called the protests it's blaming the protests on extremists external forces but how much longer do you think beijing is going to tolerate this challenge to its authority over hong kong. yeah you're right this is definitely one of the. largest movements seen as hong kong was handed back to china screwy 9097 in 20 years ago and there are some rumors recently in recent weeks that saying that china china saffron they might have
7:59 pm
a chance to deploy the chinese army to like to in hong kong to control the situation if the situations really they go out of control and things turn out and see this is our various says to move if the chinese government really decide to use de army to control the situation and this would further i ha hum const reputation they follow me and this is not something they've really used to do that because firstly how governments have to declare a state of emergency be before the chinese government they have deployed a. need to control the situation so in the short term this might not happen but in terms of flight politics and politically it is expected that the chinese government they will tighten their grip over hong kong photo because. obviously you know how some governments and the top leave them they have lost all the trust be anti-piracy
8:00 pm
so it is very likely that for the government that the chinese government to protest ok great. all right t.v. con we have to leave it there thank you so very much for your reporting. ukrainians are heading to the polls today to elect a new parliament the cranium president vladimir is a lengthy call the snap elections after being sworn into office in may he's hoping this vote will consolidate his power and give him a stronger mandates to carry out reforms the former t.v. actor was elected on promises of tackling corruption and shaking up ukraine's political system but so far progress has been slow. well the lengthy is not the only showbiz newcomer trying to shake of ukraine's politics nick connelly went on the campaign trail with a new kid on the block musician turned politician she just love.

8:02 pm
public their backgrounds and their politics it's a part of both that decides to take the plunge into politics says look you want to be prince because styles. politics for 28 years we've been we've been waiting for politicians to do something to change this country never happened probably it will be better for musicians to sing and for politicians to do politics it's our turn i hope to do as many things as possible and i'll do my best and what i see that my mission is accomplished i'm coming back very happily to be just musician. these days for this and to take a turn. between 3rd place and ending up with no seats at the polls suggest and you could still happen. some sports news now and algeria's footballers have returned home to a hero's welcome. after their africa cup of nations triumph the players were

a free which that changed the destiny of central america and gave its name to republics it became notorious it became the symbol of all that's wrong with american capitalism. this is a tale of economics and politics a story about globalization. this is the story of a fruit a simple front the but now on. her . it all began in 1871 when the government in costa rica asked a certain miner cooper keith from new york to build a railway. it was to link the caribbean coast to the high plateau changed through the jungle. but
8:06 pm
nothing went as planned. the jungle was merciless. that one accident scorpions malaria 4000 men died and just 40 kilometers of railway track were completed and. found after a stock market crash loans dried up. costa rica could no longer pay its debts the railway remained on finished myna faced financial ruin. he didn't know then that fortune was right there at his feet in humid soil of the jungle in this simple fruit that fed his workers the banana.
8:07 pm
our up. first the simple food of workers the banana appeared at the turn of the century at markets in the united states it was a prized delicacy expensive because it was rare and perishable. anyone who managed to transport it quickly enough before it could ripe and rot could turn it into gold. miner recognize that very soon he was exporting bananas and he was saved from bankruptcy. he struck an agreement with the government in costa rica he would finish work on the railway in return he asked for the right to use the line and receive ownership of large plots of land. land

8:57 pm
connally is in kiev and joins us now for more nic president selenski brought forward the timing of these elections hoping voters will hand his party more power will that gamble pay off. could often in well if the polls it's believed it will all the latest polls going to selection showed his party servant of the people his new policy picking up somewhere around $45.00 or even more percent of the vote although coming just short of absolute majority so it looks like they will have to form a coalition to get their laws through parliament but this really is unheard of no ukrainian president so far in ukraine's in history has had such a big majority in parliament and it seems like his strategy of really ramming home that advantage while the honeymoon with voters continues has been the right thing to do and certainly here at this polling station in one of the middle class suburbs of kiev there is a lot of enthusiasm for the lenski even if it might be
8:58 pm
a little less more dampened than it was in april back in the presidential election where it was a very stark black and white choice between the princess and selenski. as we all know celebrities background lives in the entertainment industry and you have to wonder why are voters turning away from traditional politicians. when michael does huge disappointment this country over the fact that ukraine really has failed to keep pace with its neighbors poland for instance was in a very similar position to ukraine in the early ninety's and is now far wealthier than ukraine millions of ukraine's working in poland so there's real anger at the political class has been in charge of the past 2 decades and a willingness to try new things out selenski is not the only showbiz. as it were there is also ukraine's most famous rock musicians who has set up his own party called hold us all voice and he looks set to bring a small group of m.p.'s into parliament let's have
8:59 pm
a listen to what people at this polling station had to say and how they feel about those shoes showbiz imports to politics. i hope we'll see changes in this country when young people take we need to change the parliament from the bottom up line. we need to keep politics and show business entertainer should stick to what they're good at what is it because it was probably that whatever happens the country needs change whether or not that change is long lasting the kind of change we need just have to wait and see what. we need professionals not newbies in government many of them but you know the work of chicago's went on selenski and why both of them deserve a top job. i just hope they don't forget the more ordinary people so you can put as an argument that it's of course things that china. so let's get this straight ukraine could see a coalition government led by a former actor and a musician. that's right although they haven't made any formal agreements in that necessarily because the singer whose party is much
9:00 pm
smaller would be the junior coalition partner has been very guarded about any kind of speculation on this but certainly. the comedian turned president is very keen to form a coalition with this party given his whole focus on a new generation in politics and new aesthetic bring new people in his alternatives form a coalition over all old guard politicians former president poroshenko the former prime minister so he doesn't have a great deal of choice and this is really the perspective that could be facing ukrainians as they go to work on monday morning. connelly in kiev thanks so much. it's been 50 years since one of the defining events of the 20th century in 1969 human beings 1st set foot on the moon the historic landing was watched on television by hundreds of millions of people around the world it's a spectacle that many who saw it never forgot let's now relive some of the iconic

3480 kilometers. and one. driver tour de france for women because so far it's a medal in a competition. jacqueline like it we want to show that women can accomplish extraordinary things too by doing something that may look a bit crazy getting people to listen to us because. their plan is to cycle the entire tour de france all 3480 kilometers exactly one day ahead of the met. her her. we're in brussels where the tour de france will start this year tomorrow these 13 women set off from here now they're making last minute preparations sorting out their helmets
9:06 pm
jerseys and ships. like this. just to please everybody check out anyone need to digest plus. what they did this is a day this is all they go it's all natural ingredients these are food supplements. and that's just. clear florrie is the one behind the dawn on designer project which roughly translates to let's get women on bikes she's been doing the tour de france every years since 2015 no matter the circumstances. i don't know if you they were the 1st time we did the 2 or there were just 3 of us and we didn't know if we budgeted enough money on the trip we stayed the family or school to wind meals and washed our jerseys by hand every evening. when it was just on my you know it was do it yourself basically did you like that was
9:07 pm
a real adventure in psychology all. things have become much more professional in recent years. now the women have a sponsor without this financial support they'd be hardly able to pay for their bike equipment and accommodation. none of the women are professional cyclists clara for example works as a sports teacher and organizes this competition in her spare time. to book with but i miss it all goodness in all this is exhausting but it's ok because it's my passion right now it leaves me little free time for anything else because i'm totally focused on this project. but in one or 2 years when they will hopefully be a women's tour de france it will have paid off cos as political psychos it's actually think of them book. in central brussels the morning before the race the women are preparing to set off.
9:08 pm
tomorrow just a few 100 metres from here the belgian king will send off the men competing in the tour de france. and then somewhat unceremoniously they're off. unlike during the actual tour de france the roads are not blocked off to cars so they must carefully we in our traffic and there is much less pomp and glamour than during the men's race they have to deal with red lights on coming cars and other challenges. the women will cover a distance of 3480 kilometers cycling through the. the pyrenees and the alps climbing to an altitude of 2770 meters but it's not about setting new records all these women cyclists want is to be treated with the same respect as their male peers. i wish you could also use i started cycling as
9:09 pm
a sport late when i was 24. and at some points i realised that i'd never seen a women's peloton on t.v. . even though there are plenty of women involved in competitive cycling but they never feature on t.v. i wanted to change that. some hardcore science friends have already gathered along the route to get a good view of the men's tour de france quite a few are impressed by the women taking on this challenge. 2 for the sake of the men get all the backing attention they could hopeful but the women don't receive enough. when i think that's why we're here to cheer them on good enough want to see. anyone up for even cycle along with them for part of the journey everyone's invited no matter their gender. i think they have a point why is their thought
9:10 pm
a force for men and not for women showed it has room for both. cycling along with the women has become really popular now for security reasons only 100 athletes are allowed on the road at any one time when i know my mom has so many cyclists have joined us it's amazing that means our message is being heard and that's a fantastic feeling this official. 4 days in 650 kilometers later we're in sandy aid to sion of always mountains the tough section lies ahead. but thankfully claire is in great shape and up for the challenge in fact just 2 weeks ago she competed in the french cycling championships. but it's not a steep climb but it drags on. unlike the men who get nutritious snacks passed on to them on the go the women have to pull over to eat. that along with navigating road traffic slows them down considerably meaning that
9:11 pm
they need almost twice the time then do for a day's stage. a small team of volunteers accompanies the women on their journey helping with preparations. this is when you can see this is the 2nd year now that oscar meyer and signed up to support them. he even took a break from his student job so we could be here but it's a race against the clock during these 3 weeks we help the women the more time they have to recuperate. carbohydrate have any food and fruit give them the necessary energy to get back on that bike or else that way so fast things are being go ahead all right but we still have half of the climb a head of us the toughest bit is still to come the negotiations there. and look for stability of really stink we'll see. every

day the women spend 8 to 9 hours biking that obviously takes its toll with muscle cramps and the like a common problem luckily they have got 3 physio therapist on the team travelling with them when needed they set up their massage tables in the hotel always in the evenings they're super busy giving the women are up down. yeah richard reeves the moment yesterday was a hard day we cycled for 215 kilometers and the last in line she would really painful reserves of our muscles got all tense but now i'm getting my toxins message out of my muscles so i'll be ready for tomorrow as they're not the rush right. there with their busy schedule they don't always have time for an evening rub down often they meet local sports clubs and even mayors after a day's cycling like here and on c. for example it tends to garner them admiration though sometimes people doubt
9:13 pm
they'll pull off the whole tour if you think you'll make it to the end but we've been doing this for 5 years and so far only one participant ever gave up that's one out of 22 in the last 4 years 22 made it to the finish line. so there's no reason to believe the chain of us won't make it this year but that's. because if it were known that this woman always need to prove themselves because people tend to think that minimal capable this is. day 2 in the bush this year clare and her fellow female cyclists are supported by an international women's team with athletes from england the u.s. and australia. australia's pippa lyon did not mind travelling this far to participate. along the road her 11 month old son is there to cheer her on. since having him it's made it even more important to me to
9:14 pm
just show to the next generation boys and girls that women can do exactly the same as men yes we can do things as foster is strong but we can do it and we can do it really well. each year there are more and more people calling for there to be an old fishel women's tour de france but so far these demands have fallen on deaf ears . even though back in the 1980 s. the organizers did one stage a women's race along with the mans but then rescheduled the event and that was the end of it christiane predominant charge of the tour de france doesn't want to tell us what he thinks about this instead he sends this statement mr perdomo already answered many times questions about the possibility of organizing during the tour de france a tour de france for women the answer is still the same organizing another race of the same time for 3 weeks is logistically not possible. there is some truth in this the tour de france is the world's 3rd biggest sporting
9:15 pm
event 4500 helpers are needed just to prepare the route and almost 30000 police officers and firemen are on duty to maintain security and some say that staging another race just requires too much work. but i've read up on c.e.o. the president of the international cycling union thinks a women's competition could be a great success. so. we will have to work on a solution and examine the technical problems and circumstances i think we can address these challenges at all and i am convinced that women's cycling can appeal to a large audience if you know you and your female athletes will finally get the recognition if it is a. fact that the sport the man your ex called and the good news is that in 2014 the tour de france organizers did begin staging a one day women's race during the men's competition but for clare that's not enough
9:16 pm
. i asked myself why should we be happy with a one day race when we are capable of going for days at the several stages of days and weeks one day race is not comparable to one that goes over several stages because over time cycling taints develop and it's something different for viewers to and from a sports perspective as well so i think women are entitled to a proper race. the. office and then also that was. for no much hard work still lies ahead of the cyclists even though they've mastered the 1st steep stages. there's still a long way until they reach their final destination paris and it will also take a long time until there's a proper women's tour de france but giving up is out of the question. look less and less like them for. this is the 5th time i'm doing this and i hope i don't have to keep going for another 15 months because it certainly is hard work and it gets

9:19 pm
fear. fear fear or trial or to produce good and grieve for light covers. we don't think of it that. and the beginning and the end of everything there is light. then god said let there be light and there was light. the light the crowning achievement of creation represents consciousness. without light there is no vision without light there is no light without light there is no art.
9:20 pm
james to rail uses light to create art to rel is not a god but many consider him one of our greatest contemporary artists of his works don't simply make use of light they are light itself. is installations bay the viewer in light. you lose your orientation as if in a heavy fog. outlines disappear. everything dissolves into color. the freezer going to museum in boston bad news posting picture on retrospective the largest ever seen a euro. seems to roll seldom gives interviews but at the museum we talked to him at length. 75 years old now he rarely travels to these kinds of
9:21 pm
exhibitions which are held all over the world. our conversation focused on the main theme of his work the secret of life. mr to route one and how did you 1st realize that the world is all about flights or no movie can tell you anything about religion or or science but i do know that the order of words about words. just the history of art in our you know our culture is littered with people who are depicting light in amazing ways and using it for the staging of the drama of of our living and what we do rather than depicted i wanted to use life itself. but that made made for some sort of staging and certainly more insulation kinds of work and he said you're not that depicting life the work is lights and could you explain the difference i like that quality of it which has to do with this the title of the
9:22 pm
show the substance of light the thing this of light we're talking about actually light being a thing and substance. i mean i have pieces here where you realize in order to see the walls which you can see you're looking through something and the slight residing in the space is no different than say walking through the forest and you see a beam of light come down that illuminates the atmosphere the air and nuff that you see this beamed. in space i mean you're not just seeing it on the surface of the ground or things like that but you actually are seeing this light is actually inhabiting the space. to real shows us how do you light from a different perspective light is to him what paint is to a painter it's raw material. that was some difficulty because you know with
9:23 pm
life you don't form a flame clay with the hands you don't carve it away like. you know wood or stone you actually have to build it almost like you do with music so you have to make instruments it does that. there are times in your apartment you can play well wagner is a good example you play this music and suddenly the. space sure it is much larger. sound and here like extends a space. that's what you're building your building with kind of space making material. i.
9:24 pm
james to rails are can be both there will ring any moving it's something you experience. at 1st glance this may seem like a projected image but it is in fact a space guns felt. viewers are gradually drawn into the space and they begin to wonder where my. and where am i. let's take a look at the ganzfeld series for instance and there's no focus really just no object or you or the other for interest i am the object. and that it's interesting what what are we left with when there is no no focus while or for oh no focus no
9:25 pm
object no thing and basically we're we're entering this new. landscape which is the landscape with horizon and you see that when you get the white out while skiing you can see it all flying when you enter the cloud and after you gauge an instrument flying. also when you dive there are times when you don't know where that you know which way is up is just by watching your bubbles. and we are entering this new realm now and we're learning to navigate it so i'm
9:26 pm
very interested in this new landscape and how we feel within it and how the light helps to build that space but what do you think what are we going to find out about ourselves in that new space. well for us well just balance is interesting because we use horizon so much for balance. and even on a boat you know you get seasick if you go down below and you don't have a rising you come up with on deck and you look at horizon you can study the stomach more easily so that we have been for a long time using this idea of horizon if you're a pilot and you do aerobatics at 1st you can feel this it deliberate and then. this actually. charges here you actually want to experience that you want to feel that and it actually has
9:27 pm
a good feeling and that's when you know that you're you're beginning to be able to navigate this this realm this new realm he said that i am the object in your work and how do i see myself seeing how does that work well you are literally investigating your at your scene and it's not so much my seeing that i present to you and then you can go and. with that knowledge put it into your saying this is actually it's about you're seeing correctly as you experience it so you get a chance to discover it for yourself it's not a discovery of mine so much as it is becomes your discovery that's what i hope anyway. james to rail is also an experienced pilot and he made a key just covering one day while flying he became aware of the majestic scope and beauty of the sky. he has created sky escapes all over the world.
9:28 pm
these chambers provide viewers with a new visual perspective on the heavens the universe and eternity. this is the museum in the n.d.s. mountains of argentina it was funded by the swiss entrepreneur and arts patron donald hess. the museum stands 2300 meters above sea level fully isolated from the rest of the world. in this place nature often stages its own light shows. when if you really fall in love with the sky as a pilot well certainly as a poacher you do because that. those who supports you and i mean it is this atmosphere that you are swimming in and of course it is life like water it is the
9:29 pm
it has substance and it has changes as you see weather come or light involved with that atmosphere and that's what specially quite beautiful and people experience that coming over from the u.s. to europe as you wake up and you go into the the morning that you're headed in to her suppose you're up there with the best seat in the house. and but yours is good enough i mean off to the side it really is amazing what happens as you approach the met here and so i've always enjoyed that flight you say that you can even change the color of the sky and how do you do that i'm not changing the color of the sky but i'm changing your context a vision which give you a different color to the sky to make it any color you like in some of these very spaces but. that has more to do with you know how we form our
9:30 pm
perception we we the sky is blue because we have to give it that color we awarded that color because we do that means that and then we can change it so. that's not difficult to do. but i mean the and people are surprised by that because essentially we feel we receive everything. that we're not a part of that we behold and we're definitely a part of that we behold so and that's one thing the artist can do is sort of give you the general cohen to tell you well you know you're making this reality within which you're live so it's nice to be aware of it. and it was from the air the james to reel discovered what would become his greatest artistic achievement. this is the road in a crater in arizona. to rail has built
9:31 pm
a kind of observatory inside the crater complete with underground shafts and tunnels he's been working on this project for for decades and is still not complete here charlie experiments not only with light but also with sound and acoustics. the spaces are sensitive to light and sound. it's almost difficult to make them without because once you make $0.03 if you like. it's very bright to start so you can take your new call if you can take advantage of. a visit to the crater is an experience that almost overwhelms the senses. so this is something where you are within the earth but above it and so this you know taking self into this in the sky is something very very interesting you know all the faces i make have access to the sky and to read
9:32 pm
a book. and you know one of things we rarely do is if you are in new york and you watch people from just the 2nd floor hardly anybody looks up. it's a mixed thing so part of this is just sort of redirect your vision and also make you realize there's that whole world that's above us and that we have access to it . to day to real lives and works in flagstaff arizona a town with a population of about 65000. well hello. my. flagstaff is cold in winter and hot in summer. james terrelle was born in los angeles california about 600 kilometers west of here . i guess but i'm. doing fine. i think it must be
9:33 pm
something special about the life of california how did you perceive flied when you were a child. well children oriental light and you do that in the crib and here you will look to it and something that really helps orient to this. and i mean california is not that different than say south of france or or italy or spain. the thing that is very interesting though is a lot of people who freesheet light are from areas where it's it is not as prevalent and more precious and so you know you have costs of all you have turner amazing very prescient artists just for david friedrich the dutch school all the painters of light from norway and sweden. and paraphrased who were came to germany to study art. you know where it's more
9:34 pm
appreciated were more precious. when james tarell frames light as in a painting he's following a centuries old tradition of western art. from the baroque period to modern times artists have been captivated by the power of light. light can bring a scene to life increase its dramatic effect and focus the viewer's attention. in the 17th century the use of light transformed the world of art. for the 1st time artists used like to highlight their subjects and not just saints but mere mortals . and even the artists themselves.
9:35 pm
they created a world of sharp contrast between whites and dark. their renaissance sought to bring light into darkness using science and reason to counter the influence of the church and religion. rembrandt's the anatomy lesson of dr nicholas tulip is the quintessential renaissance artwork the participants are gathered around the corpse of a criminal and the body is bathed in light. in the 18th century the english painter william turner took the use of light to a new level in his work the slave ship the sky and sea the low. light floods the canvas and rulers contrasts turner also made use of dissolves and fading effects which he copied from early photographs.
9:36 pm
in the 20th century photography became the preferred medium for experimenting with light. gifted photographers like man ray made substantial contributions to this art form. one of today's most important artists care how it reached there has found new ways to use light his still life skull with candle plays with our perceptions. the images are interesting lurd shimmering nothing is as it seems. james to rail uses many of the same effects in his works images to blend into one another playing tricks on the viewers imagination. in college to real studied psychology mathematics and astronomy these disciplines are reflected in his work a sophisticated attempt to alter our sense of perception one might said you are
9:37 pm
even more than an artist you're a kind of loss of her a spiritual guy maybe a scientist how do you see yourself as an artist i mean as i say this is not things that inform science i'm informed by a fun and interesting point is that life is also used in para p. and one of your pieces called healing light so is it kind of a healing experience or do you try to balance it in terms of the programs use if you stay in there some version so that it has kind of all kohler but you know the unit or system use those is cued off of exposure for lloyd. and so people call that the shocker is you can just call it anything system that's fine but it is something that is physically us and so we do orient to these things and do it healing from that i was wondering and to what extent at least experience a spiritual i mean life is also
9:38 pm
a universal symbol for the divine each and every human being is and artists have been involved with religion since day one. making work that supports the rhetoric that comes from the priesthood or or not. but you can see that all the altar pieces and everything here and in europe i mean it's quite amazing what artists did. and how they were involved with the church and also a problem for the church it seems that you were inspired by the need to take meditative quality of light because you know you do go inside to greet the light in meditation and that you will get that visual purple and you'll get the beginning of that as you enter meditation so we are followed by light we carry it within us so there never is no life. even when you're inside. you know i would
9:39 pm
never of ation cell you'll find that there is light that just close your eyes you'll enter a life filled realm of eventually this is i mean we do have this life inside and. and. you know this is a visual mantra. chuck rosen visual mantras james to rails works reflect his interest in eastern mysticism but they're by no means esoteric. his parents were devout quakers a form of christianity that believes there is good in everyone and that we all have a direct connection to god. sitting in silence in quaker meeting to rail learned his child to come to a place of peace in the quiet. he was raised to find the divine light in every person.
9:40 pm
who says the door to cemetery in central berlin philosopher georg hale and author and playwright virtual brecht are among those buried here. a few years ago terrelle transformed the chapel here with an installation that took full advantage of the twilight hours. a room without shadows filled with changing colors. the altar is a cube of acrylic less. outfitted with l.e.d.s. that make it a central source of light. very much in line with the traditional christian concept
9:41 pm
of god as creator and the source of divine light. here unlike into roles guns filled works the contours remain sharply defined so that viewers maintain proper orientation. to. the space in which one remembers the souls of the dead. christians are invited to reflect on their belief in eternal life. some may find comfort in the idea that life will not end in darkness but in light light is present at the beginning and at the end of life. or last i'd like to know if there's a light that you love and maybe a life that you hate. well. i mean i appreciate it all i don't have any that are. one of the things i like to do is to give. light like i've seen in the dream. this
9:42 pm
is basically a different light than we normally have they were normally involved with it in a conscious awake state you know what this is like come from in the dream is that memory well. part of it could be memory yes that is replayed but then the truth is we are often involved in experiences that we find later. in what we call the conscious await the waking state or life. as in deja vu so. it's not all memory. which is quite interesting in curious and. has the light come from a word does the light come from in the dream where does it come from. and it. is something we definitely experience. and that is powerful the dreams are most powerful when we have the dreams and color of course and often when they are this
9:43 pm
kind of dream it is not from memory but from. experiences that are to come the lucid dream is quite amazing and most people have had one but that's not just having one it's having one that they remembered because we often wake up and from the moment of awakening the dream is leaving us and so we're trying to hold on to it but you know we can do that a bit with art by making life it's very similar to how we see light in the dream. because it's not know how we not only see light. but we're but if you have this flat unknown 2 of which i find very fresh no. great thank you very much you're very welcome. gives us a key that unlocks the door to the subconscious mind is installations are like finding yourself in a vivid dream in which spatial boundaries are blurred. light like music has the
9:44 pm
power to alter our perceptions of space. to the point where we perceive to a limited extent a sense of infinity playing the arab the leg. the end.

9:56 pm
president volodymyr selenski called the snap elections after being sworn into office in may he's hoping this vote will consolidate his power and give him a strong mandate to carry out reforms the former t.v. actor was elected on promises of tackling corruption and shaking up ukraine's political system but so far progress has been slow. connelly is in kiev and joins us now for more nic president selenski brought forward the timing of these elections hoping voters will hand his party more power will that gamble pay all. could often in well if the polls it's believed it will all the latest polls going to selection showed his party servant of the people his new policy picking up somewhere around $45.00 or even more percent of the vote although coming just short
9:57 pm
of absolute majority so it looks like they will have to form a coalition to get their laws through parliament but this really is unheard of no ukrainian president so far in ukraine's in history has had such a big majority in parliament and it seems like his strategy of really ramming home that advantage while the honeymoon with voters continues has been the right thing to do and certainly here at this polling station in one of the middle class suburbs of kiev there is a lot of enthusiasm for the lecky even if it might be a little less because more dampened than it was in april back in the presidential election where it was a very stark black and white choice between the princess and selenski. as we all know celebrities background lies in the entertainment industry and you have to wonder why are voters turning away from traditional politicians. when michael does huge disappointment this country over the fact that ukraine really has failed to keep pace with its neighbors poland for instance was in
9:58 pm
a very similar position to ukraine in the early ninety's and is now fall wealthier than ukraine millions of ukraine's working in poland so there's real anger at the political class has been in charge of the past 2 decades and a willingness to try new things out so linsky is not the only showbiz. as it were there is also ukraine's most famous rock musician stuff like that uku has set up his own party called holes ovoid and he looks set to bring a small group of m.p.'s into parliament let's have a listen to what people at this polling station had to say and how they feel about those issues showbiz imports to politics. i hope we'll see changes in this country when young people take we need to change the parliament from the bottom up line. we need to keep politics in show business entertainer should stick to what they're good at what because he was probably think that whatever happens the country needs change whether or not that change is long lasting the kind of change we need just have to wait and see what. we need professionals not newbies and government i'm one

of them actually putting out the welcome to couples when school is a car joke on selenski and my both of them deserve a top job so i just hope they don't forget about ordinary people so you can get as you are going to this of course these are shining through the so let's get this straight ukraine could see a coalition government led by former actor and musician. that's right although they haven't made any formal agreements and it didn't necessarily because the singer whose policies much smaller would be the junior coalition partner has being very guarded about any kind of speculation on this but certainly . the comedian turned president is very keen to form a coalition with this party given his whole focus on a new generation in politics and new aesthetic bring new people in his alternatives form a coalition over all old guard politicians the former president bush and co the former prime minister so he doesn't have a great deal of choice and this is really the perspective that could be facing
