because bamboo is such a low calorie food to get the nourishment they need pandas spend half their lives eating bamboo and the other half the jesting is. you really have to love pandas to do this from morning till night. the animal produces up to twenty kilos of droppings every day. that's just so much so we have to do that i mean whether to hoard it we just seem enjoy it or. are we are without allies from pretty. you know. you could make paper out of these droppings mostly comprised of so yes
5:01 pm
for now though that wouldn't be a very profitable enterprise the rest till too few pandas but all that and the print really does hide some invaluable information that might just help the animal survive. so this stuff this is john panda. collector this wild place all along the reservation. and then we want to study the michael about. this the bacteria bacteria you can see this goes this is not digestible and bugs inside of this. bacteria us which can help digest this. and they need to all day long like. they need it. that way in my.
5:02 pm
yeah first. i'll pick up. the solution and. yeah. i'll. take that ronald is that where you figure it's like it was. yeah. and actually away already did this flag for. three years. no one wants. more. done this or sit in there no longer. than. i first started this project i hope i can find a sound bacteria that they can. digest the siller and if i
5:03 pm
can do that then i can't extract a spectator and. supplying to to their food and that will help them to the apparatus survive. but all that work by dedicated scientists will be for nothing if panda love can't be encouraged in captivity it's not as though they don't practice until the pandas do get amorous but in the same lazy way they do everything else this proud mommy gave birth to twins and has no idea that especially love potion this formulated just for. eighteen years ago i traveled across the united states exploring america's deadly love affair with the gun bad guy tried to get to one of my family members he would have. better live with that better and i think they are and hurting when i buy my
5:04 pm
babies says my book was published in the year two thousand more than hoffa million americans have been killed by firearms in the u.s. we had a thought to me as i did this this is a middle school we go through drills and we put ourselves in real scenarios it was interesting to see who actually got hit by the gun i just saw it's a return to the subject to track down each gun owner who i'd met and photographed those years ago i don't know this but we are not. this is says harlan kentucky. so we've all just moved them boys you can walk around three families are you.
5:05 pm
a co money since it was almost no coal mines left. the jobs are gone all the coal was the fed. and it was love to see these people the survivors of a world disappearing before their eyes. i remember thinking when i was younger that if anything ever happened to the coal mines here that it would become a ghost town but i never thought in the million years i would see that and it's how it's happened. a couple of the best out of georgia. the high says is preparing to perform i actually prepare myself to die.
5:06 pm
sorry trust me i asked. you a slow and homo stuff time that was her or was. this country was. sort of getting. what it was that he could with us to. yes get more deep mission. toilet b.s. . was. two thousand and sixteen has been a pivotal year for the giant panda the change to center alone has already seen its
5:07 pm
population growth by another twenty three copes. it's taken the breeding center more than fifty years to achieve the breakthrough. but. i don't give up. on this there are many who want to show that the. we don't win the. fight just simply. what those who kaiser pushers use are. mostly good. mother to go with just moments ago too. do you. know when this is. you would you go. see the. question about. they've tried everything to increase the population there are even
5:08 pm
whispers of value being added to the pandas feed. but every attempt seemed to go wrong one female and they're almost all heard off much to pieces then there was the male who was so enraged by the female chosen for him that stuff had to intervene and break up a fight. he would. there fighting. with our to our skins oil so if you could. have been a pilot and see it here then you are saying you didn't say you'd hear say there is . no you can see behind you and you're part of the union and you may if you don't want to i reckon. that's until the international doesn't seem to just. grow will listen that tiny
5:09 pm
sensation doing since i will says i'm done i'm alone you can't even see now it's. just an intelligent quality. kiddo made the way out now hold on tight that's intensely that's. why they. can't get off you know i've got the judgement on. you for. feeling guilt you don't give up. that it's your work that's all of my colleagues i think you don't. know you know how to. to make.
5:10 pm
sure that for me there should. be. so if my name is james a. animal behavior researcher at the ching do tend to be when people ask me this question like why i chose to work here why i chose to work with pandas it's a complicated question and i think the animal itself is very interesting they're very complicated and it's one of the only carnivores that's a vegetarian so their whole lifestyle is based on. the panda is one of the oldest living. it's been evolving for about eight million years . so this is so we can check your teeth for dental exam. good girl.
5:11 pm
girl momo up. james idea there is an indispensable expert here at the change to center there's no way to undertake a thorough examination without him the pandas simply won't tolerate anybody else. what. is basic training so we can control their movements and call them in position them and also build rapport with them. this is also useful for veterinary examination. so he has an injury you know the veterinarian can check his eyes in this position and they can check the ears of the panda and they don't have to worry about being scratched or bitten the pandas need
5:12 pm
to be examined daily stuff almost have to go through each individual hair because the pandas are at risk from so many dangers that the threads aren't always easy to find. your mother. she isn't on at. why it isn't oh it isn't on just isn't that she the other. party had it was and as a whole just. a year in the hall years in the what you know about. me just say yes in the usual. but i didn't tell him he doesn't even. know you found. so we reward him two ways one ways with honey and the other ways tactile that he likes to have the inside of his erode. so
5:13 pm
sometimes instead of just using honey will touch them to you it's good. a lot of times at this age de lay to grab your legs and try to bite you but this way we can get him to behave pretty. clear doesn't want to bite my pants he wants to bite my flesh so he's he's trying as hard as he can to get flesh and when he bites me too hard make the crying noise that the pain is make. if it hurts them when they bite too much. scientists believe that as a species panda stopped evolving as a direct result of human intervention. that's why people owe so much to this very special animal the family is endangered you know they just took it off the endangered species list in the industry. but they're still only about one thousand eight hundred sixty four pandas in the wild. the work i'm doing is trying to. life for them trying to put them back in the wild to me it seems
5:14 pm
a little premature that they would take them off the species. but they're only just showing this population. very vulnerable to change in temperature change . a little premature for me to take them. it's still a mystery help and has managed to survive on nothing but bamboo the tallest and fastest growing grass in the world. is beautifully as it comes into flower groves and it comes in cycles of thirty three sixty six and one hundred twenty years. that natural phenomenon causes mass deaths among the pandas. but the breeding center plans around the growing cycle so there's always plenty of shoots to feed the little one's. health.
5:15 pm
i live in washington d.c. and there is the national do. not worry. that has had and. have been. on the city of richard nixon back in seventy eight and since then they've had and but. while the hundred babies were born there and none of them survived it's still two thousand and five. there was a male powder born to mother in the shower. and he survived i was watching old relationship between the mother time to. the car. and it just touched my heart how much the mother. takes care of the baby
5:16 pm
you're going to laugh. when i sure became. it was about four years old he had to go back to china and because that's part of their lease agreement because all china. no one has none has issues have been able to keep safe. and it really helped me a lot to come to china to see where he lived where. i volunteer i got to feed him i got the people who enclosures. and i also volunteered killed a pound a day. goes on and then handle topical. which until now you know kind of common and to simply tell woman cool they're going and then go. aboard and that's the kind of how many.
5:17 pm
and then south asked him to come and made him a. commendation ching d.j. that made him go standing. on the shuttle you mean to say that teachers are so shit no matter who does an intro. tripping on to the truth all members of we. don't just mean it's energy childhood. jellies that touches it just it does that. to adults who doesn't assuming. that a five year sentence. the

currency market itself is still on track to eclipse the global banking all adopt only which is what we need what we want and i've always said it's a bank starkiller that's the primary use of bad coin of the earth.
5:19 pm
across europe municipalities are taking their water supply back from private companies to me to people this is a simple song alone even some company elsewhere though they invited private companies to take over the utilities many bought a telescope of a lab from us you guys who got on the program might be. used by been this is us to quote them out. for you member of the lift bill brought up locals are ready to stand up for the basic human right of access to water it's about water but it's also over much more than war it's about the hurt and the redistribution of. purpose. downwards do you want or what.

the b.b.c. is accused of bias is the u.k.'s house of lords questions the corporation's brigs it coverage following the release of damning reports. in other news don't trump a school saying that he'll definitely release the contents of a controversial classified memo. alleging abuse of surveillance powers by the f.b.i. . and israel is to sue to new zealand is allegedly convince the pop star lord to cancel her television concert.
5:21 pm
very good evening to you thanks for joining us this hour my name's neil harvey this is r.t. international. the b.b.c. has been accused of bias in its briggs it coverage with the majority of its guests said to hold a pro e.u. stance that's according to several recent reports which have prompted anger in britain's house of lords. frankly is a pretty p.c. has become the supporter over for organizing. for your. dave bricks through mr to the dude who said to me recently that his job in brussels this move even more difficult it is return he makes a small advance for his problems of mind for the b.b.c. . in order because you do a duty of impartiality. the report was by an organization called civic tasm a amusingly called it the brussels broadcasting corporation and they found that
5:22 pm
over a long time period ten years up to two thousand and fifteen out of more than four thousand guests who were asked to speak about the european union just a tiny fraction of one hundred thirty two of them were in favor of this but today's report is from the institute of economic affairs and it allies two of the b.b.c.'s key panel political shows if you like so question time and any questions and they found that out of six hundred panelists who were invited over the last eighteen months two thirds of them supported remaining in the european union with just a third of them supporting it and not only that but if you recategorized the people who did support remaining in the european union but are now implementing it inside the government you'd still have a sixty forty split against brics it has a little bit of what they're talking about you cannot leave free access to
5:23 pm
a market of five hundred million people without making yourself poorer than you otherwise would be actually one of the immigrants that is no longer welcome ham polish before twenty three years they have been discriminated until breaks it came about can you please. i've got some other quotations i was saying in the spirit of brits or you just have to listen to the news on it as a generalization. think anyone who's listen to the newsroom recently has heard the unsponsored briggs's terminology or audience the b.b.c. has sent us a statement responding to this latest i.e. a report it says that these programs are not single issue programs and also that it doesn't just invite politicians it invites commentators and pete leading figures from across the life spectrum in this country it also says the b.b.c. is no longer reporting on this binary choice leave or remain which the electorate faced in the referendum they're now giving the public the opportunity to hold
5:24 pm
politicians to account over the way that they're implementing bret's it we've also contacted several unions and other organizations that represent journalists and we will bring you their response when we get it the other story all guidelines of the corporation however say that it must be inclusive and reflect the diversity of opinions we spoke to mark littlewood director general of the institute of economic affairs which was behind one of the reports on the b.b.c.'s coverage. but it's true that we are no longer in a referendum period and that is true as the b.b.c. said in a statement by a phone as she waved but it's no longer a binary choice but the problem is this although there are a wide range of choices do we leave without a day old do we stay in with a transitional period do we stay in the single market do we stay in the customs union and if so for how long well there are now wide range of options really those range of options are subsets of the remaining camp and belief cap i think is pretty
5:25 pm
full that a public broadcaster is skewed that guess sometimes less so dramatically in this direction on the top political issue of the top teams in general in britain the stagnation figures famous figures and influential people have tended to be in favor of a u. membership it's more the ordinary man or woman who rebelled against the political status intense philip site it seems to me that balancing the full people's views on breakfast and making sure you had a fair share of voice from even the full length of the argument should be a very very high priority indeed i think the politicians along with the leave side of the argument those were in favor of bricks and are beginning to lose their patience with the b.b.c. the b.b.c. with all of you boys take flak from every side they call the center right combine center left people on the side the left is like a center right and if you are taking sort of equal amounts of flak from criticism from both sides of that the fight will perhaps back to sign that you have the
5:26 pm
highlands but i would say that the b.b.c. now should be concerned that there are politicians who are seriously raising in the british parliament in the house of lords a genuine concern about whether these they really can be considered a useful old process one that doesn't just go i tell you personally if you put a proper balance in that the b.b.c. starts to lose the fight of politicians in the public in that key question of neutrality then i think over the longer term i have a great deal of problem justifying the present funding and possibly even. present basis of their existence. donald trump has been caught on a hot mike saying that he'll release a controversial classified memo allegedly detailing abusive surveillance powers by the f.b.i. happened as the president was leaving the chamber three state of the union address he was asked by republican lawmaker jeff duncan to release the memo or a were rather.
5:27 pm
its claim that document reveals the f.b.i.'s abuse of the foreign intelligence surveillance act particularly with regard to claims found in the infamous trump dossier if confirmed it could damage the reputation of the agency and the ongoing investigation into trump's alleged links to russia the memo was drafted by the chairman of the u.s. house intelligence committee the senate is voting on monday to make it public some of the committee members who read it called it absolutely shocking and worse than watergate was that trump has until friday to decide whether to release it. well the reaction to john's first state of the union address was mixed with stunning evasions to booing america was following the speech arguably one of the most important announcements of the night keeping kuantan him obey open in the past we have foolishly released hundreds and hundreds of dangerous terrorists. only to meet them again on the battlefield including the isis leader
5:28 pm
al baghdadi who we captured who we had who we released. so today i'm keeping another promise i just signed prior to walking in an order directing secretary mabus to reexamine our military detention policy and to keep open the detention facilities in guantanamo bay. so he's going back on obama's policy but on foreign policy there was plenty of american exceptionalism mixed with platitudes and the shays he introduced the subject by naming every so-called threat to the u.s. but in general it was all pretty vague he didn't go into detail explaining how he would accomplish any of these goals but beyond that trump took credit for eliminating isis and he seemed to have hinted at continued military presence in the region saying quote we will continue our fight until isis is defeated he ended it
5:29 pm
with north korea calling it the worst of all dictatorships warning that their pursuit of nuclear weapons could very soon threaten our homeland even though d p r k has never attacked another country before north korea's reckless pursuit of nuclear missiles could very soon threaten our homeland past experience has taught us that complacency and concessions only invite aggression and provocation i will not repeat the mistakes of past administrations that got us into this very. dangerous position while russia and china have been trying to reduce tensions between the u.s. and north korea and they even called on the u.s. to doubt provoke them anymore but somehow they were designated as threats and from speech around the world we face rogue regimes terrorist groups and rivals like china and russia that challenge our interests our economy and us
5:30 pm
in controlling these horrible dangers we know that weakness is the surest path to conflict and matched power is the surest means to our true and great the french i was just watching our mainstream coverage earlier in the only criticism they had well as foreign policy wise was that he was apparently too soft on russia. ok i can bring in a guest now the former guantanamo bay detainee and he's now the outreach director of the organization cage appreciate your time most first of all what are your thoughts on tom's announcement that one time a prison stays open. it's really strange it's almost as of the united states has a bipolar attitude towards kuantan and more president obama in two thousand and nine signed a consecutive order. ordering for the closure of guantanamo trampas.
