extremely excited to see it back in dallas is once again taking to the stage and we've seen the film and system at taking us through the ages of the bolshoi productions because productions fragments of productions from nine hundred fifty a performance of prince ego to the more famous ones such as tyco speech swan lake what we saw the photos prima ballerina. of it taking to the stage breathtaking to watch it out in this beautiful as if slightly chilly evening in most everyone just really got to be involved in the fullness as well of course treading the boards for the first time in six years it's been a long time in the coming but certainly the way to the end of the evening on the big screen we had tributes from some of the late great performers at the bolshoi they were talking about they're interested ation for the form of entering the poster informing that would also be seen from spectacular. the moment here tonight
. and two was seen as fantastic for need faith in the post race history the push his back is doing what it always did best and not capturing the imagination in the attention of people around the world. furthur enjoying what was happening outside the country who's one of the lucky few to make it inside the bolshoi for the performance you know details how the ground theater made its way back to the forefront of russia's cultural stage. that's the kirkby one top of the first time in six years it rebuilds have run of ation that ranks as the most meticulous and expensive in the theaters a strange and it was impressive because in the first place it was renovated according to the original vision of the tsars self but the room on a dynasty all hammer and sickle emblems were replaced with the original symbol of czarist russia the double headed to eagle that no detail was considered as to
expensive or challenging and the least of those invited to come to russia to come to the bolshoi in this first night was very impressive among the guests was sold the hello goodbye chill for the has of the last skull of peter the vienna oprah house covent garden i was still in the third of a day on the way here shortly before the big gala concert started with hotel with tell an actress money could be lucci it was her first time at the bolshoi theater but not the first time in russia. so. here i sit. on your. bike to. see her. and see. the russian church. see the time that i think here and i.
think i think that some people this is. a truly impressive red carpet event for russia and for russian theater lovers and you know as the curtain came down the cheers of bravo from outside could be heard ringing inside the renovated restored bolshoi. the antiwar street protesters plan to intensify their campaign by heading your system where it hurts and stage a walkout next wednesday so for now the heavy place cry. down at one of the peaceful protests video of an iraq war veteran big seriously injured in oakland went viral campaign is resolved let's talk more about this now with david korten he's also of the when will the world david thanks for being on our seats and i this group called iraq veterans against the war claiming it was the police that threw a heavy object maybe a gas canister i think hit scott olsen his head there's what happened in oakland show the police out of control do you think.
well the police are actually in a very difficult position and they're all they're kind of caught between the the establishment that feels them and you know occasionally there are acts of. violence from the from the protest but those come from a fringe element the clearly the the bulk of the protesters are deeply committed to nonviolence which is extremely important and i think the police sometimes fail to recognize that when they attack. non-violent protesters it really exposes the corruption of the system and the fact that the police also mostly are orfield and to protect the one percent and not to protect the free speech rights of the rest of us david i guess that you know it actually it actually draws more people more support for the protest and i guess as this goes on times they get more and more
frayed now about you know what the best intentions are also because there's reports suggesting many people in oakland are now calling for the city's mayor to step down after this incident you think it's going to escalate further. well you know my focus is not on individual oakland protest i'm much more concerned about the big picture and my excitement about the protests is the fact that they are finally drawing attention to the fact that we have an economy actually not only in the united states but in the world that is predominantly working for the for the one percent of people who control the financial system it is not working well for the for the ninety nine percent and we've had you know we've had so much conversation in the united states fueled by corporate media focusing attention on the problem of this obama or the problem of the government. skipping over the fact that we have wall street has created an economy that is devoted primarily to making
money for rich people through playing financial games and that we have to we have to address that issue. you know people are complaining that the occupy wall street people don't have clear demands it's actually quite clear what they want they want their economy back they want their government back they want their future back and they actually want a country that operates by principles of true democracy and real markets which which work for everyone all well and good so i don't get too distracted by individual incidents and open sources like delay on the line there so it's a lot of you that david you know it's all very well and good that but it's into week six now and other actually making any headway. well six weeks of the very short time this is you know this is part of a very very deep deep frustration what it does is it points attention at the real
source of the pain that people are feeling across the united states in the world and it opens a space for a conversation about what is the purpose of the economy who's the economy working for why what do we need to do to create an economy that actually works for everyone this is this isn't a conversation that we should have been having many years ago and surely it's a conversation that should have been provoked or stimulated by the the wall street crash in two thousand and eight in fact it wasn't the corporate media was managed to deflect attention in other directions with the wall street occupy wall street protests are are really pointing the finger where it belongs and opening that conversation now you know it actually took you know it took thirty years for the wall street forces to create the devastation that they have created. be corrected
six weeks david what it's seven years this is two thousand and eleven we saw what arab spring we've see basically a european if you want to talk about events in athens and london and american old some of you think heading for a wide when some of these global protests are going to branch out even even further do you think. well i think it's very interesting that here in the country that where we pride ourselves on being the birthplace of modern democracy that the inspiration for these protests is in part coming from the arab spring. but i do so they could it is very significant that. good people all around the world are are organizing feeling a sense of solidarity and actually demanding. demanding real democracy depend on demanding accountability from their governments but also particularly the wall street protests going attention to the fact that our one of our major barriers to
true democracy is the abuse of the financial power of wall street to buy and control our politicians and to bias the rules in favor of supporting wall street speculation bailing out banks rather than bailing out people where we need a fundamentally different set of economic policies that are focused on building main street economies that actually work by true market principles and. getting true democracy that's based on one person one vote rather than one wall street dollar one vote david thanks ever so much david corn also of the book when corporations rule the world. is still kind of gadhafi is most influential son saif an islamist led to need and he's looking now to hand himself over to the war crimes court prosecutors say they're in talks to bring him in but what's keeping western leaders nervous is that saif could then spill the beans on the recent belge deals that made with this saw this bennett reports. to some moammar gadhafi was
a man who knew too much secrets which will supposedly be buried with him i think that there were tremendous sighs of relief all over capitals in western europe this is somebody who cut all sorts of deals with the french but also the british and the italians and to a certain extent the americans as well i think they did not want him put on trial for any reason and i am not surprised that he was captured alive and he very quickly ended up dead gadhafi returned from diplomatic exile was spectacular hugs handshakes and kisses from the heads of countries which denounced him good after he's now silenced but the suspicion around those who laid out the welcome mat is far from buried i don't feel as though his gritty you see this with but the. dealing with him is constant and it. will go away precisely because the
situation was fishing will probably grow shrinks it mayor sharon acutely into a situation where they could never as it were proved that it was then british prime minister tony blair was instrumental in get to effie's rehabilitation bringing him in from the cold in two thousand and seven but blair didn't leave empty handed trade between them flourished so did the cozy relationship there were six more secret meetings after blair left office his people denying they were about releasing the lockerbie bomber abdel baset al mcgrath he or britain would lose its lucrative libyan deals i regret myself enormously that gadhafi was but should he should have been said to the international criminal court put all the trial and force to all it's a question through all the terrible things he did and if it davidge the contemporary world leaders or previous regimes leaders tough. we need to
know. what it is darby. with. some details of the murky dealings have already emerged claiming the reputation of one of britain's leading universities the london school of economics agreed to contract with the good acting regime worth over two million pounds to educate hundreds of its future civil servants the director was forced to resign and now the university of tripoli is demanding the money back french leader nicolas sarkozy was never shy in creating good daffy even letting him pitches tend to nearly say palace apparently for bankrolling sarkozy's path to the presidency so says this man the one who could still tell all that cause he had never had sarkozy must give back the money he took from libya to finance his electoral campaign we funded it and we have all the details and are ready to reveal everything. saif al islam gadhafi son and key right hand man reportedly ready to surrender to the war crimes court saif is
going to have low information and now i think we're so eve that tony blair intervened formed to help him get his dodgy ph d. degree from the london school of economics when. degree apparently was plagiarized there's a lot of things that have gone on there so you knows about saif gadhafi is wanted to answer for his own actions in libya is drawn out battle for control but it's what he could reveal about the diplomatic deals with his father is keeping the western power players sweating after bennett r.t. london. syrian opposition activists are urging protesters to rally for a no fly zone over the country thirty seven people reportedly killed by security forces in friday's anti-government protests with u.n. figures suggesting over three thousand have died since troubles began seven months ago brodbeck of the answer antiwar coalition told me believes the demands of the opposition may inflict a disastrous war on the country. and we're using the same lingo the same scenario
the syrian opposition is borrowing a page from the playbook for libya they know that they can come to power only with the advance with the support with the intervention through multiple means of the nato powers of the western powers and i think what we can tell the syrian people is look at what happened in libya the issue of a no fly zone sounds like go a way to defend civilians it's really a way to begin the war to begin military operations against the syrian air force or air defenses and i think the first step and this is the plan of the obama administration is not direct military intervention but to promote a civil war inside of syria i think they realize that the syrian government is substantially stronger militarily and within the arab world as compared to khadafi but they can use the human beings who have grievances valid or not to be the human material for
hello welcome to the podium in this week's episode we'll be exploring. the city has completely changed over the past two decades and today each evening the capital is transformed into a fairgrounds of colors and bright lights. as we explore various nighttime it was just sights are now logs starting off here at the magnificent kremlin. after decades of appearing in monochrome finally seeing itself in bright striking technicolor. every evening the russian capital changes dramatically as the city transforms itself into a brightly colored face around as the largest city in europe moscow is alive twenty four hours a day traffic jams at one am streets full of people late at night and restaurants and bars open around the clock. traffic changing trunkless the capital today is
packed with bright billboards nuance. and illuminated buildings. to the glittering landmarks of the kremlin and the christ the savior cathedral the russian capital is well worth exploring at night a visual feast. i like the fact that unlike many european cities most oh like lone delights dunghill shortly after midnight even if you take a walk in the russian capital at three o four o'clock in the morning you'll still be able to see the elimination. in my opinion moscow is a little bit crazy in the daytime night the lights make it much more glamorous amazingly beautiful. when its famous imposing towers and bright stars the kremlin and neighboring red square is an image known to millions around the world illuminated landmarks whatever season present spectacular images visit is will never forget the area surrounding red square is also known for many other peaceful
buildings too i just love this building the store it always. especially. is just to located right. about. him it's one thing however wonderful it looks day i would not like but. in a similar style to the great nineteenth century train stations of london in my opinion this illuminated building is one example of architecture that is more impressive at night from a distance i think it looks like it's made from gingerbread you can see why it's a must have photographed. a few nights later and the twinkling lights of coombe switched off no they haven't forgot to pay the electricity bill more than fifteen sites to face a university building many others are taking part in a special event called the second light. and international festival with
a difference hundreds of technicians electricians and artists a working on the project. dynamic projections. it's an event to remember. especially as. a special jury consisting of pop culture presenting. of the most striking and fools. in. a marvel. is one of them the three hundred sixty degree is something to be seen. but how is the image of. the look and feel of.
special event it's nice. very it's very beautiful i think you should come to this hotel here you have to talk you can see the city downstairs it's very beautiful it's values amazing yes yes this is really great. i think you know just take a cap and ride around the city it's not so expensive as they have to spend five hundred dollars that's approximately fifteen euros twenty dollars and they can write for the city and you would see it all things you know the one thing i've noticed about you know living in moscow over the past six years is its obsession with branding whether it be neon lights or huge billboards that's a problem here in moscow. it's a little bit too much so i think it's people over doing it i would prefer a little bit less. yeah you got much more you got much more lights much more
advertising much more too much in your head good thing or bad stuff i think for me personally it's tiring because you get it's like this whole. tension you know you can't stop you from here something from there the whole day something flickering there you know it's too much and it makes me really tired well it's great to be you chris and thank you good luck with all your policy projects here must go to the next i will look for it thank you. make some trouble in the southwest direction along the river locations through the run from kooky park and the screws the sand if you want wonderful views of the city and my spirit is the place to come also spot for wedding ceremonies and dozens of seaven even food stores thousands of this is to come here every week while the views from the area aspire hills are just beautiful i think it shows some of the best of the capital of the city seems so relaxed and calm from here since the skyline you can make out the
science academy the stadium. of course the seventh largest of the box is the university building located right behind this. spectacular building was designed by architect. as opposed to the main building the tallest building in the world outside of new york city at the start of its construction. the central tower is two hundred forty meters tool thirty six stories high and total of three kilometers of corridor and five thousand rooms a celebration of moscow's eight hundred sixty fifth birthday the moscow state university building is transformed into a twenty five thousand five hundred square meter screen with a spectacular light show masterminded by david actions to show which end to the guinness book of world records for being the world's largest ever show featured

are several projects including. take place in moscow during the weekend. the main idea is to find secret locations in the city after receiving clues from the internet the team which is the first to decipher and find all the spots to see the pods. tonight. so i'm told of his high rise extraordinary excursions the sky is the one and only limits the curious tourists when you build a typical city looking tools when i explore the capital from a different view points. of. interest in photography i climbed up various structures to take pictures of interesting. first i discovered abandoned buildings radio television towers. and decided to share the experience with other people. through the eighteenth century there was an informal pass in the height of the kremlin's tourist bell tower and even today there is no unified city of regulations
as to how shiny new buildings can be. decidedly enjoying high life on a rooftop is becoming more popular the capital is at night a city totally transformed into a sea of colored lights every year that blaze of light in confidence swells as a true symbol of growth and development. is truly heaven for those aiming higher than the sight seeing and as one of the most vibrant cities of europe. by the desire to join it. what. side but unfortunately that's that's all we have left on this week's program about moscow by night i'll see you again at the same time next week not again around the russian capital and all that for me and the rest of the current by now.
