tv   The Papers  BBC News  August 28, 2017 11:30pm-12:01am BST

11:30 pm
hello. this is bbc news. we'll be taking a look at tomorrow morning's papers in a moment. first the headlines. north korea fires a missile that passes over northern japan. that is breaking news. it draws a furious response from tokyo, which says it will take "full steps" to protect its people. president trump declares a disaster of historic proportions, as america's fourth—largest city is hit by a year's rainfall injust one week. plucked to safety from rooftops by helicopter, as the entire texas national guard are called in to help. up to 2,000 people are rescued, including residents of a care home. she said within10—15 minutes, the water went from ankle—high to waist—high, so, immediately things were underwater and floating. there's frustration in brussels, as the third round of brexit talks get under way. the eu's chief negotiatior tells the uk to remove ambiguity. german prosecutors say a nurse
11:31 pm
who is serving a life sentence for murdering two patients, may have killed 84 others. hello, and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers will be bringing us to what the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me arejohn crowley, managing editor of newsweek media group, and the broadcaster, lynn faulds wood. thank you very much for coming in. tomorrow's front pages. we start with this. the telegraph says that the brexit talks between the uk and the eu have descended into a slanging match with the eu's chief negotiator, michel barnier being called "unhelpful." whereas the times picks up on the frustration on the other side in its headline: "‘it‘s time to get serious‘, brussels tells britain."
11:32 pm
the ft says that theresa may is set for disappointment this week because, the paper claims, the japanese government won't rush into free—trade talks with the uk. the metro reports that the driver accused of killing eight people in a motorway crash on the m1 was almost twice over the drink—drive limit. the lead in the express is that arthritis sufferers, who take ibuprofen for pain relief, are at greater risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, and stroke. meanwhile, the mirror on its front page says that statins could halve the risk of breast cancer according to new research. the daily mail highlights the case of a five—year—old christian girl, who it says, was forced to live with muslim foster carers. and finally, the guardian lead is that there have been a record number of calls to the police over mental health. but it also has a photo of the 51st notting hill carnival adorning the front page. we will start with the times.
11:33 pm
britain has to get serious, says brussels. they would say that, wouldn't they? it is frustrating what is happening at the moment. it seems to be so sluggish. there was the slanging match at the beginning which is still ongoing when boris johnson said they could whistle for money. the government in europe want to talk about how much money britain owes to europe. the other thing... they are setting the agenda at the moment. they want to talk about the anglo—irish border and the rights of eu immigrants who want to remain in britain. those are not bad things to wa nt britain. those are not bad things to want to talk about. that is what they are saying they want. but
11:34 pm
britain wants to talk about other things. they think they are serious. they want to show their hand. there have been different treatments on the same story. we are getting the same quotes. the times is the most nuanced, talking about brussels. but when you read into it, this is the negotiating stage, hard bowling, they said british sources say the lack of a paper was entirely deliberate and the government was not ready to commit to a financial settle m e nt not ready to commit to a financial settlement without the eu discussing a transition package. to give some credit to david davis, this is his negotiating line. he will not give. he is talking about the ambiguity which we will talk about from the telegraph in a bit. constructive ambiguity. what does that mean. but, as they said, whether you agree with
11:35 pm
this or not, this is high negotiation. if they say we will pay you hundreds of millions of pounds ina you hundreds of millions of pounds in a divorce bill, don't worry about ireland, that will be ok, people will still be able to move back and forward , will still be able to move back and forward, clearly that is not what david davis wants to say. they want to say it is unseemly, certainly, at the moment, with them stabbing each other in the front, this is not how politics should work, but they are speaking to their electorates. look at that guy. he is stupid. do you think they are impressed by this? it is like schoolboys being rude to each other. michel barnier has said iam each other. michel barnier has said i am ready to intensify negotiations in coming weeks in order to advance. awarning, a in coming weeks in order to advance. a warning, a threat? he is
11:36 pm
frustrated according to the times. i understand. he is calm. publicly, all we are seeing is not very much. they need to crack on with it in private. instead of insulting each other, perhaps telling each other to shut up, they just other, perhaps telling each other to shut up, theyjust need to agree on something that looks positive to everyone's electorates. by 27 against wind, they will win, it looks like. —— but 27 against one. he has been described as unhelpful on the front of the daily telegraph. britain is not happy with his comments. the slanging match continues. i think we have covered the front page of the daily telegraph. the i. it is getting
11:37 pm
worse. we are used to hurricanes blasting through, but it is getting worse for texas and houston in particular. i am not surprised. my taxi driver on the way he told me his family lived in houston and he was scared. they cannot get in and out of their building. it is terrible. pets are being washed away. this is terrible. and it is not finished. 30 inches of rainfall have fallen on taxes and spreading to louisiana as well. and another 20 million... 20 inches. this week is claire they are at breaking point. it looks like 30,000 will have to abandon their homes. and donald
11:38 pm
trump is visiting the region. i don't think he will visit houston. whether that is deliberate... we can speculate. he cannot get in and out. do runner motorways. that is his argument. —— there are no. he says he doesn't want to disrupt the relief effort. but this is the first epic natural disaster event that has happened on his watch. the klaxon in his ear is the disaster that hurricane katrina was for george bush. can he rise above it? he was tweeting about a myriad of other events tweeting about a myriad of other eve nts o n tweeting about a myriad of other events on the weekend about this. can he rise above it... can he stop tweeting! can he give hope? in his statement at the podium over this, because he was at a press conference, the finnish prime
11:39 pm
minister was visiting, he kept to the script. everyone was watching closely. to round soft, very quickly, people have not picked up in the uk the fact you have the shale gas, oil refineries, and fuel prices have gone up. people are watching what has happened in houston for global rough percussions. yes. they are finding the oil. it will hit the cost. the price will go up. —— are refining. that will concentrate minds more. the guardian. the first story. record calls to police about mental health. this is sad. the police say every five minutes they get a call about mental health. it is a huge number. why call the police? they say it there is a failure of the nhs mental health services and there
11:40 pm
have been cutbacks to deal with the problems. people are turning to them. there are many people with very serious mental health issues, hearing voices, things we read about in the papers, not rare, at someone being stabbed. —— but. people don't know where to turn. the nhs is not answering so they are turning to the police. we have to sort this out i'iow. police. we have to sort this out now. there is a huge rise in people calling because someone in their family, friends, they have mental health issues, it is frightening, frankly. this quote coming from inspector michael brown. he says most people in contact with the police about mental health issues do not need the police, they need a mental health professional. they don't know where to go, basically.
11:41 pm
that is the problem. just carry on with the guardian. it is all about pat’- with the guardian. it is all about pay. do you think bosses will reveal their pay packet? we don't do... publicly, to explain, they would be obliged to publish the chief executive and average british worker pay gap today. theresa may, i don't know if... it is not going to happen. she has made up her mind already. this is weasel words. i have seen it announced before. i don't think this is going to work. they are saying the prime minister has pledged to put workers on company boards. they say it has been watered down. but would you not love to see... imaginejust watered down. but would you not love to see... imagine just for a second it did happen. it would be
11:42 pm
fascinating to see these publicly listed companies, the difference in pay ratios. people would not want to go to work the next day. the weasel words is to do it on a comply or explained basis. that means you can decide to tell these workers or...|j could add something. or you could not explain it. it is too easy to dodge. it is written in to get out. the mail. christian, a five—year—old grecian girl, put into foster care with two was family. —— christian. it is in tower hamlets. i want to know if this is the only case. i worked for the mail a long time ago.
11:43 pm
lam worked for the mail a long time ago. i am disappointed to see this as the front—page story. miniseries things are happening in the world. this is serious, but it is not for the first page. —— there are many serious. serious, but it is not for the first page. -- there are many serious. you can argue that... it is an important story that... is this the only time this has happened? there is no context. what on earth is the council doing having something like this happen that so obviously is going to have terrible repercussions? if the press get hold of it, as theyjust did... alarm bells should be ringing. the child was crying saying she does not understand arabic. she also said she was made to it on the floor. this story will not go away because mps
11:44 pm
demanded a review. that is the splash. we have not looked inside, i am reading what's on the front.“ that a great witness for the courts to be admitted to her? is there a bit of racism creeping in?|j to be admitted to her? is there a bit of racism creeping in? i will jump bit of racism creeping in? i will jump in. we approached tower hamlets council for jump in. we approached tower hamlets councilfor a jump in. we approached tower hamlets council for a response. they jump in. we approached tower hamlets councilfor a response. they said they are unable to comment on individual cases. the council's fostering service provides a loving and stable home for hundreds of children every year. in every case we give absolute consideration to the background of the children and cultural identity. all foster carers get training and support from the council to get fully trained and qualification ready parents stop.
11:45 pm
the children's commissioner is asking questions now. it is not going away. if this is the one this ever happened and there is a reason why it happened, 0k. ever happened and there is a reason why it happened, ok. if it turns out every council in the country has the same problem, then it is a huge story. but at the moment, i am hoping it is only one. it is not going to go away. finishing off. statins. a miracle drug.|j going to go away. finishing off. statins. a miracle drug. i don't know what they are. are of a cheap? —— are they cheap? there is a huge question over is cholesterol really as big a problem as it is made out to be? 1
11:46 pm
i million women were looked at. they are saying there is a connection between high cholesterol and survival of breast cancer and they are thinking that the use of statins. .. are all sorts of reasons. i'm going tojump in. they also said you are better off doing half an hour '5 risk of walking. thank you very much to both of you. just to update you, north korea has launched a missile test that has gone over japan's northernmost island of hokkaido. the uk foreign secretary borisjohnson has said he is outraged by north korea's latest provocation. plenty more coming up on bbc news. don't forget you can see the front pages of the papers online on the bbc news website. it's all there for you — seven days a week at
11:47 pm — and if you miss the programme any evening you can watch it later on bbc iplayer. thank you lynn and john, next on the bbc news channel, it's the film review hello and welcome to the film review on bbc news. to take us through this week's cinema releases is mark kermode. so mark, what do we have this week? a splendidly mixed bag. we have detroit, which is the new movie by kathryn bigelow. we have logan lucky, which i keep wanting to call lucky logan because it looks like the look words should be round that way.
11:48 pm
and tom cruise is back doing what he does best in american made. i'm glad you've got a logan lucky issue because i have as well. i keep wanting to say lucky logan. detroit, i've seen many rave reviews already. i'm a big fan of kathryn bigelow who won an oscar for the hurt locker and directed zero dark thirty. the film is set in 1967 in the detroit riots. it begins with a broad canvas and the film slowly focuses in on a particular event. at the beginning, a speak easy is raided, rioting breaks out, the state troopers and national guardsmen are sent in, the rioting continues. we then follow a particular character played by a musician who is denied his moment in the spotlight because the riot is breaking out. he takes refuge in the algiers motel. the police then discend on the motel where they believe there is a sniper.
11:49 pm
the police are led by a character called krause played by will poulter. who is described by writer mark boal as a character who is inspired by the recorded deeds of a detroit policeman, although he is a fictional character. meanwhile john boyega who is such a brilliant actor, is a security guard who finds himself in the middle of an impossible situation. he's somebody who is distrusted by both sides and attempts to make peace with both sides. here is a clip withjohn boyega. hey, fellas, melvin dismukes. i'm with united security, i'm guarding that grocery store across the street. i come bearing gifts. oh, thank you. ain't this nice, boys? hey, all things considered, this is pretty good. thank you. i don't have my usual appliances. got any sugar? don't push it, man. you can see from the clip the film is shot with that very, sort of,
11:50 pm
distinctive documentary—like style. barry ackroyd is a brilliant cinematographer. he's done what bigelow has done before. turning fact and fiction, working with mark boal, turning something into a drama based on real life but there's dramatic contrivance. the film narrows its focus down until it gets to a single corridor of the algiers motel where this terrifying interrogation and worse takes place under the auspices of this cop played by will poulter. the thing i like about this is that kathryn bigelow is extremely dextrous and the movie seems to move through different genres. it starts off as a social document then moves into something almost a musical at one point, when it is in the hotel it becomes a horror movie. some people have taken issue with this but you remember kathryn bigelow directed near dark, which is a vampire western. i think it's a brilliant horror movie. and later it becomes a courtroom drama. i think those shifts are its strength. its greatest strength, beyond the way it's put together, the brilliant editing job
11:51 pm
which leads you through it... it's like jostling through a crowd of people, different stories, different genres, until we're finally focusing on one central event. but it's the performances that carry it. john boyega is brilliant, he has a way of telegraphing really strong emotions through the tiniest of facial expressions. will poulter is fantastic. he plays a character which has a malevolence hidden under a facade of innocence. it's a tightrope that could easily fall over into caricature but it never does. the experience was thoroughly immersive. it's very, very gripping. it's often terrifying and kathryn bigelow is a fine film—maker. it's an urgent film, despite it having a period setting, it feels urgent and contemporary. that's definitely on the list. what of logan lucky? neither urgent nor contemporary. steven soderbergh is back and it's a heist movie. it self—described in one moment of dialogue as 0cean's 7—ii.
11:52 pm
channing tatum is the mastermind behind this plan to rob the charlotte motor speedway during the coca cola 600. it's a nascar racetrack. he was going to carry out this heist with his brother adam driver. it's a heist caper movie, so it's an impossible job, it can't be done. but they have figured out a way to do it with tunnels under the track. and getting this guy, joe bang, who is an explosives expert played by daniel craig. looking for all the world like a beenyean—paul gauthier. getting him out of prison to do thejob, then getting him back into prison. it's written by rebecca blunt who nobody has heard of before, and some people have taken it to be a nom de plume for the director. but they say no, it's someone we've heard before. there is a certain amount of satire, some american flag—waving for memorial day, and there's a line in it one person says, "nascar is like america, you're making us harm america". but the fact is all that satire is very much like nascar, it goes past you and then we're back.
11:53 pm
i enjoyed it, it's fun, it's flippant and flimsy. it doesn't really stand up. i have a sense you thought about it deeply since you saw it. i have to say, after i finished smiling my way through the movie, i moved to the next thing pretty swiftly. the fact is, it's not easy to make a film that is fun and flippant. there are enough bad movies out there trying to do that. this does it rather well. take us to tom cruise and american made. the thing that tom cruise does best is flying, wearing aviator shades and smiling in a way that says, "trust me, i'm tom cruise". this is directed by doug liman. it's inspired by a real life story and some is true and not true. a twa pilot, who became a drugs and arms smuggler claimed to work for the cia. ended up providing evidence for the dea. he is recruited by a mysterious shadowy figure played
11:54 pm
by donald gleeson, who never puts a foot wrong. ever. he says i know you are smuggling cigars, and you need to work for us now. we will give you this airline. here is a clip. cia owns this? no, no. independent aviation consultants. iac. yeah. you'd run the company but after hours you can work for us. takes pictures? the work is covert. cove rt. so anyone finds out about it, family, friends, even lucy. it's lucy, right? yeah, that's right. that'll be a problem. all this is legal? if you're doing it for the good guys, yeah. just don't get caught. i'm backing tom already.
11:55 pm
but there's a lovely moment of threat there when donal gleeson says it's lucy isn't it? suddenly you see the harder edge. what then happens is, he starts off allegedly working for the cia filming the communist insurgents, then gets mixed up with pablo escobar, flying cocaine to the us, then has to run drugs. the whole thing has a chaotic momentum. meanwhile, money is piling up everywhere. so much so they don't have anywhere to put it anymore. it reminded me of a lot of films, things like air america, war dogs, catch me if you can. the latter is a much more substantial movie which bears up to much greater scrutiny. it has that accelerating pace of something like goodfellas, but none of the depth. if you think of things like the mummy and think, was i ever bored? no. did i think a character was ever properly three—dimensional? no. was it fun while it was on screen? yes, it was. it's a movie that seems to be based around an understanding of, there is a thing that
11:56 pm
tom cruise does. you can like or dislike tom cruise, but there is a thing he does which is he can do that... that big slightly crazy smile and you buy into it. again, i thought it was enjoyable fun. detroit is a movie with such substance and so much going for it, and in the case of american made and logan lucky, not lucky logan, they are fun but they won't stick in the mind like detroit will. one that will stick in the mind is the one you will pick as the best one. dunkirk, have you seen it? i haven't, and it's high on my list. you need to see it in imax if possible. it is an overwhelming experience, it's christopher nolan. he is such a great champion of film. i saw this in imax 70 millimetre. the interesting thing is, it's very complex. it is three time structures, one week, one day, one hour. all intertwined. if you have been a fan of nolan since memento,
11:57 pm
you know he's interested in shuffeling time. but it's a straightforward story. it's the story of dunkirk. as a piece of cinema, it's terrific. i've seen it twice now and both times, the end of the screening, everyone has been silent. people have literally been like that. that's a testament to how powerful it is. but see it on the biggest screen possible. a brief word about your dvd pick? lady macbeth. florence pugh is brilliant in this adaptation of the story. the script is by alice birch. the tale of a woman who refuses to confirm, refuses to be down—trodden, is vilified by society as a result of it. really powerful. fantastic sound design. that sounds like something only a film critic would say but believe me, it's the film you watch with your ears and it's a fine piece of work. good stuff. a quick reminder before we go that you'll find more film news and reviews from across the bbc online at and you can find all our previous programmes on the bbc iplayer. that's it for this week though.
11:58 pm
thanks for watching. goodbye. good evening. some places can up to 28 degrees today. it was bank holiday in much of the uk. tomorrow probably won't be quite as warm as that for most because of this band of cloud and outbreaks of rain sinking southward and eastwards. during tomorrow, the band of cloud will be slow—moving. not much rain, but it separates what is left of the warmth from some cooler, fresh conditions up north. for northern ireland, scotland, northern england, sunshine and a few showers. after 17 degrees. still clinging onto some
