‘ continues as we north—west of the uk continues as we head to the end of next week and into next weekend. —— for the. further east we will still tap into this very hot and humid air. if anything, we may bring even hotter as up from the south into the latter pa rt as up from the south into the latter part of next week. temperatures in places could head towards the midthirties. daytimes in southern and eastern part of the country will be very hot indeed with some long spells of sunshine, and the nights very warm, in some places not getting above 19 or 20 with relatively high humidity. notice at the end of the sequins, next weekend the end of the sequins, next weekend the chance of thunderstorms. i talked about this hot and humid air from the south, but in the atlantic, this blog of colder air, this associated with a dip in the jet strea m associated with a dip in the jet stream and there's the chance this dip in thejet stream stream and there's the chance this dip in the jet stream will get cold enough into next weekend with the cold air in the atmosphere the stabilising things and sparking off
big thunderstorms. just the chance at this stage the rain may break the heat. we will keep you posted. hello, this is bbc news with vicki young. we'll be taking a look at tomorrow morning's papers in a moment. first, the headlines at 11:30. the eu's chief brexit negotiator, michel barnier, has said many questions remain about theresa may's vision for future links between london and brussels. after a surprise invitation by president trump, russia says it is open to a possible visit by president putin to washington. president trump's former lawyer is reported to have secretly recorded a conversation with mr trump before the 2016 election, in which they discussed payments to a former playboy model. two 15—year—old boys who plotted to murder teachers and classmates at their school in north yorkshire have been given custodial sentences of 10 and 12 years. novichok victim
charlie rowley, who was found in critical condition in amesbury earlier this month, has been released from hospital. hello, and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are the political commentator giles kenningham and the political correspondent for the guardian, jessica elgot. let's have a look at some of tomorrow's front pages. the daily mail leads on brexit with the headline "now there's a surprise!" after the eu dismissed key parts of the prime minister's latest proposals. it's a similar story on the front page of the express, which reads "brexit plan savaged by eu mafia." the i also leads on the eu's sceptical response to theresa may's brexit plan, and warns of the growing threat of a "no deal." the online independent features
a picture of a girl it says is hoping to be gaza's first 0lympic swimmer — but its main story is also the brexit negotiations. "cabinet at war over free movement." that's the headline on the front of the telegraph, which splashes on reports of a clash between the chancellor and the home secretary over immigration policy. it's a different lead for the times, which claims tens of thousands of children are being given anti—depressa nts despite concerns over their health risks. the guardian leads with a pledge from the education secretary damian hinds to help relieve pressure on teachers suffering from an excessive workload. and the daily mirror says "boris won't budge" and claims the former foreign secretary borisjohnson is refusing to leave his official residence despite his resignation. so it looks as though brexit is dominating the morning's papers, after theresa may's speech today in belfast and michel barnier‘s remarks in brussels. let's begin with the daily express.
robert lee no surprise they have come up with this headline saying it has been sabotaged —— savaged by the eu mafia. this is a quote from jacob rees—mogg, saying that brussels' aggression proves why it is right to leave, and saying that the eu needs to get serious about negotiations. yes, the war of words stepping up. hardly surprising that the eu pushed back. we are going to see a lot more of this. we are in a high—stakes endgame here. the eu have skin in the game, i think we need to hold oui’ the game, i think we need to hold our nerve. we will get a deal, but all these things will go down to the wire at the last minute. do you think we are going to get a deal?” think we are going to get a deal?” think he's right, if i was going to bet, i would say it will go down to the wire and it will, we will eventually come up with something, however in perfect it is, which will only see us in two h ansey and deal.
if that works out, and if they acce pt if that works out, and if they accept the plans for that, which hopefully they will, there are still some discussions over the irish ordered backstop, then hopefully there will be another two year grace period to turn everything up. —— irish border. it really depends whether the prime minister can keep a government together to properly negotiate the deal. words are escalating from members of her own party and that starts to look less and less likely, whether they will even allow any brexit vote to go through the house of commons. that is the problem for her. she is time to negotiate with the eu and meanwhile she has lost two cabinet ministers over this. she has an issue of party management, but it is also the damage it is doing to the conservative brand. it looks like the party is terribly distressed with this one issue and is not really pursuing a domestic agenda at the same time, so they have to do be careful. as bandwidth is taken up managing on your own party, you are not focusing on negotiations. that
could be costly. i think maybe people don't realise we are talking about the withdrawal agreement here, we're not talking about any final arrangement, this is about the getting out, about the we are going to pay, about getting to that transition period. and it is the issue of the northern irish order that seems to be the biggest stumbling block. —— border. that seems to be the biggest stumbling block. -- border. in brussels they might be surprised about how this is described. if that was a savaging, it was quite a gentle one. it was the rents are canned it picked apart the problems with the white paper, but it wasn't, you know, it felt like he wanted to be able to give the prime minister a bit of space to say, you know, we are not rejecting this, but here are our problems with it.” are not rejecting this, but here are our problems with it. i think it was very inflammatory rhetoric. you can use it now and then, but the more you use it, the less impact it has. this is very normal, to read things like this. i don't think it will have much impact. and the i has a similartake on
have much impact. and the i has a similar take on this. other papers have taken it differently, saying he has given hope to the deal, at the i says the eu has torn up the brexit plan. threatens —— threats of a new wave of resignations. that is the problem. this is a starting point, according to europe, not a finishing point. we have seen this before, about tory brexit tias threatening to walk out, i don't buy it. they have. but there are 20 haven't. -- plenty who haven't. if they bring down theresa may, do they bring down the government? there could be a general election. brexit couldn't happen. i am often struck by the language they use, as long as it happens. i think this isjust language they use, as long as it happens. i think this is just a language they use, as long as it happens. i think this isjust a bit of jockeying and manoeuvring happens. i think this isjust a bit ofjockeying and manoeuvring but i think they will hold their nerve. you were saying about michael gove four, it is that kind of approach, saying, look at the bigger prize here. we are leaving the european union after all these years,
something so many of them have campaigned for four decades. for some of them it isjust really one of the things they have staked their career oi'i. of the things they have staked their career on. it is hard for some of us to understand that, perhaps. it is really a do or die issue. people. there are voices like michael gove saying, hold on a minute, this means we are definitely leaving. this means there isn't the potential for a general election or any kind of second referendum, and i don't think either of those things are very likely. but if we follow through and leave at the end of march and 2019, then we have some freedom to change then we have some freedom to change the agreements afterwards. —— in 2019. at is something that people like borisjohnson 2019. at is something that people like boris johnson didn't 2019. at is something that people like borisjohnson didn't believe at all, and he attacked that approach in his resignation speech. but that is one of those things keeping a lot of brexit here is in the cabinet. —— brexiteers. i don't think any of this will change their mind about that. let's look at the guardian,
schools need less stress and more cash, coming from the cabinet minister in charge of schools. teachers and parents will be thrilled. well, more cash, it is quite unusual to hear that from cabinet ministers at the moment. this is a bid from damian hinds for more funding. he will have to get in the queue, i think. there more funding. he will have to get in the queue, ithink. there is more funding. he will have to get in the queue, i think. there is a more funding. he will have to get in the queue, ithink. there is a part of this i was struck by, about how he is acknowledging that teachers are coming undera he is acknowledging that teachers are coming under a huge amount of extra workloads, and it is quite a conciliatory tone he adopts. 0ne extra workloads, and it is quite a conciliatory tone he adopts. one of the things he says, this is one that teacher friends of mine have raised, parents can now email teachers direct the and expects to get immediate responses. —— directly and expect. outputs a lot of pressure on teachers which didn't exist and numberof teachers which didn't exist and number of years ago. —— that puts a lot of pressure. he is saying, if we could get rid of the paperwork they
have to do, that is something predecessors have tried, but there is something about this technological age which puts a lot of burdens on teachers and we need to deal with it. where is the money going to come from?” to deal with it. where is the money going to come from? i was struck by the conciliate the tone of this interview. in marked contrast to some of his predecessors, like michael gove, who had a very combative approach. also interesting he is going to try to stop the cycle of reform. that is something teachers complain about. yes, they complain about that the most. you talk to people in tory circles and they are backing him as they potential future leader, a they are backing him as they potentialfuture leader, a bit they are backing him as they potential future leader, a bit of a dark horse. maybe that person who comes through the middle and no b is watching. at the bottom, the story that has been breaking this evening. trump secretly taped discussing payment to playboy model. michael cullen, his long—term lawyer, secretly recorded a conversation with mrtrump, secretly recorded a conversation with mr trump, before the presidential election, in which they discussed a potential payoff to a
former playboy model who was, i think it was alleged she had an affair with think it was alleged she had an affairwith him. it think it was alleged she had an affair with him. it has echoes of other cases but it could get him into a lot of trouble? yeah. when it comes to donald trump it seems like nothing should surprise you but this is another sort of astonishing revelation. it is amazing it has only come out now, given that it was a huge scandal in month ago. it really, i think this question will i'iow really, i think this question will now be on the back of all of trump's advises' mines, if he recorded this conversation, he was trump's lawyer for a long time, what other conversations has he been recording? and that will be fascinating to see how it plays out. i think the issue here is not the embarrassment, necessarily, about what he may or may not have done, that the fact that it would reach campaign expenditure rules. it is kind of a story that will not go away from trump. most things, he is quite teflon, he brushes it. but this keeps coming back to haunt him. one of those classic political cliches,
it is the cover—up, not the crime. fascinating, stories keep coming on all sorts of issues. let's move to the telegraph. where is the money going to come from, for all these cabinet ministers who want some of it. devon williamson, the defence secretary, is one. he suggests theresa may should cut taxes to raise revenue, like nigel lawson. parking his tanks on the chancellor's lawn. no love lost between those two. they have had high profile fights which have been documented across the press. i think the backdrop is that he has been lobbying for more money for defence. obviously there has been this £20 billion cash injection for the nhs which will have to be paid for by increases in tax. he isn't going to get his money now and he is throwing the cat amongst the pigeons by saying, we should be looking at tax cuts. in normal circumstances, quite extraordinary, the defence secretary making up economic policy on the horse. but it feels quite normal. —— on the hoof. out of control, you
might say. it is extraordinary how these stories get into the paper. they are all eyeing off the leadership, is that is what is going on? quite interesting tactics from williamson. obviously no love lost between chancellor and the defence secretary, but possibly philip hammond is going to have to do things in the budget that will be quite on top lot. we have a story in the guardian a few weeks ago, he is thinking about doing things like raising the fuel duty. it might be that other taxes have to go up. if it is not a popular budget, at least the defence secretary is putting down his mark an hour, he is not necessarily behind it and he thinks there are other ways of doing things. —— his mark down now. politically, this is the budget, because it is the one or year 2 of an election cycle, you are not coming upfor an election cycle, you are not coming up for re— election unless the government collapses, of course. that's not going to happen! we've got to end on a story about weather
and travel, all wrapped into one. frantic friday. floods, gridlock and chat glaze. what a joy. foremost tipple, the schools have broken up and that means it is going to rain —— for most people. and there is going to be an airline strike. why going to be an airline strike. why go away? the weather is so good, just a home and avoid this travel chaos. it sounds grim. apparently, i think, 2.5 million british people are expected to travel this weekend. that sounds lack a recipe for chaos and an absolute nightmare. —— sounds like. it is really, it sounds really cliche, and perhaps it will end up being too optimistic, but the weather is so beautiful at the moment in this country, and you can have just as much sun sitting out in your garden with a glass of wine then you can sitting on the cost of else. ——
then you can sitting on the cost of else. — — costa then you can sitting on the cost of else. —— costa del sol. then you can sitting on the cost of else. -- costa del sol. maybe that is why prices are going down. that is why prices are going down. that is it for the papers tonight. now it is it for the papers tonight. now it is time for 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. you cannot fail to notice that out this week is mamma mia! here we go again. i know you are a huge fan, i can't wait to discuss this with you! also out this week, jodie foster in hotel artemis and a low—budget but brave film the receptionist. here we go again! so, where do you stand on the first mamma mia! massive abba fan of more than a0
yea rs, massive abba fan of more than a0 years, i massive abba fan of more than a0 yea rs, i really massive abba fan of more than a0 years, i really didn't think the first one was very good. i watched the first one and i thought, this isn't very good, this isn't very good, good heavens i am completely going with it! where there tears? yes, there was tears! and so ten years later, you think, they can't possibly repeat this phenomenon because it really questioned my entire ideas of good and bad and whether not there was any role for critics in the world! so here we are, a decade later, and we have a prequel—sequel hybrid, structurally it is godfather ii! back in 1979, donna graduates from oxford and she goes off on the holiday which is the beginning of all the trouble. in the present day her daughter is opening the new hotel and she is calling around some old friends because history is repeating itself. see what i did?! i can see where it's going! # look into his angel eyes...
# you take your heart and you must pay the price... # look into his angel eyes... # you'll think you're in paradise... # and one day you'll find out he wears a disguise... # don't look too deep into those angel eyes.# i don't think it's camp enough! 0k, here's what i feel. firstly, julie walters, in terms of physical comedy... on a technical level i think this is slicker than the original. it has slightly smoother camera moves, there are slightly better choreographed dance sequences, because it's happening in split time and temporal structures, we get these scenes which mirror
each other so from the point of view of the construction of a film it is really good. we have all the old cast back again and some new cast members playing the younger incarnations as well. they are a very likeable cast. lilyjames lily james could charm the birds out of the trees. none of that would matter if the thing didn't have any emotional punch. it did. and about ten minutes in, the sequence where they did, i kissed the teacher, i started having just a little cry. and then when pierce brosnan took a very gentle run... god bless him... he can't sing, can he? we are allowed to say that. you can't sing, you can't dance, but you can still have the time of your life! so here is a question, what is the greatest abba song ever recorded ? dancing queen! no. it is my love, my life. but that is a heartbreaker. and the drama moves towards its. and i promise you when my love, my life happens...
i won't spoil the moment... i was in floods of tears. ican imagine. i was sobbing, i was... i was having to stop myself from making a noise in the screening because these other people, what on earth is he doing? i laughed, i smiled, i loved it to pieces! and the thing you always think about a film is, is there any way in which this film could have been better? i suppose having dwayne at the rockjohnson in it but other than that... i thought it was absolutely fabulous. i cannot wait to go and see it again. it topped the original... so you're saying that a sequel is better than the original, how often does that happen? i'm saying that in the case of both the sequel and the original i lost all sense of critical faculty and i felt myself going with it. were i a braver man i would have been dancing in the aisles. and particularly, as things are at the moment, it's the film that you really need. and i promise you if you can get through my love, my life without floods of tears, then you're dead to be. it's that and mary
poppins at the moment. those are the two touchdowns. you will love it. i can tell that i will. i didn't like the first one because i felt there were too many people in it who couldn't sing, and that really annoyed me. there are still some people who can't sing. but it's fine, because when they do the songs that matter, they can sing. someone just said to me that we can't talk about this film for the whole programme, which is very disappointing, because we could. i actually think we can! we have to move on! hotel artemis, jodie foster runs this hotel ten years into the future, los angeles. there are riots and she runs this hotel which takes in outlaws and bandits and she patches them up after they have got wounded. the cast includesjodie foster of course and jeff goldblum. i thought it was kind of disposable fun, i'm saying that after mamma mia! it is kind of slickly done. it has a cartoon feel to it. directed by drew pearson.
there is some quite stylishly mounted violent set pieces which are always done in a kind of cartoon way. doesn't have much emotional clout. at the centre of it you do have jodie foster playing this character who has darkness in her past which she manages to convey. and there is also a brilliant comic turn by dave batista, he makes the most of this joke. but he is this man mountain, he is a medical orderly and he keeps showing everyone his badge to demonstrate that he is a medical orderly! it is kind of 0k, it is not great, it is not mamma mia! here we go again, let's be honest, but it is kind of 0k! and a totally different turn for the third film, which i haven't seen but by everything i have read is really emotional in a different way. it is, it is very tough it is a drama written byjenny lu, a taiwanese graduate who can't find work, ends up taking a job in an illegal massage parlour, here is a clip. she's so nice, thank you.
somewhere and ended having her dreams crushed and committed suicide. what i like about this film is that it feels very real, it is very gritty, it is done with a lot of heart and integrity. the way the film got made was that the script was written and the script won uprise and went to crowd funding and it is very hard to get a film made. tifosi that it took ten years to get double the levelling made. my feeling about this is that it is tough, there is no question about it, it is a tough watch, it it is a bleak story although there is hope. there is also a real sense of companionship, you hear these women's voices and you get to know them and i think that comes across well. but i think more importantly it is a feature that makes me want to see more from this writer—director because i think it is done with integrity and hard, it is a very, very small budget film. you will have to seek it out. mamma mia!! will be on every single screen,
as well hotel artemis, this one, you will have to seek it out. but it is worth it, it is a bleak film but it does have hope and hard and more importantly it does have integrity. all good qualities. and best out, leave no trace... this is so far the best film i have seen this year, i absolutely love it. it is the story of a father and daughter living off the grid in the forest outside portland and they get found by the authorities. it does not put a foot wrong. there's just nothing that this film gets wrong. there's never a moment when the characters stand and explain themselves to each other. there's never a moment when the characters have one of those conversations that you know was written by the script writer to tell you what's going on. it's all to do with the gestures and emotion. again, you'll love it, trust me. i do trust you. forgive me, i'm a bad person. the only reason i haven't seen it is because the weather has been so utterly beautiful. i couldn't face going to sit in a cinema. that doesn't make you a bad person! what busters are based on a condition cinemas. -- what busters.
—— blockbusters of the but i am very excited to see it, as soon as we get some rain! and a dvd? yeah, this one is about someone who was a very promising actor, worked with stanley kubrick, realised that to him he was a genius and wanted to does it take his whole life to working for stanley kubrick in every possible way. it is all about, what does it mean if you decide that somebody else is a great artist and you are basically going to sacrifice everything that you have to facilitate their art? i thought it was a really interesting document. i'm not the world's biggest stanley kubrick fan. i thought he was great at times, i could live with eyes wide shut. but i really think this is a portrait of somebody who is in love with the movies and a moviemaker and decides to dedicate himself to making that art happen — and it is very inspiring. fascinating — did he ever see his children? that's what you wonder, it's an extraordinary story. it really is. go and see mamma mia! that's the weekend sorted, isn't it? and just a reminder before we go, you can find all the film news
and reviews on the bbc online. and all our previous programmes are on the iplayer, of course. enjoy your weekend of cinema going! i have still got angel eyes going round and round in my head! have a good week! some areas have been lucky enough to see some rain today, others just had the cloud and hardly anything fell from it. a bit of a range of weather across the uk but yes, some useful rain in places, gone for the weekend as it becomes dry once again as we see this finger of high pressure pushing back in across the uk's. a bit of patchy rain overnight into parts of england and wales, dying out to a few showers later. a lot of cloud to start the day tomorrow, one sunny spells developing. for england and wales at any stage of the day just about anywhere there's the chance of picking up an isolated shower but most will stay dry. this
is the picture south to north across the uk at apm, the odd shower dotted around in southern england, south wales and maybe south, east anglia at this stage but most will stay dry. one sunny spells. more cloud in northern ireland. the thickest further west you are. patchy light rain -- further west you are. patchy light rain —— one sunny spells. carnoustie as the open golf continues. lots of cloud around but brightening up as the day goes on —— worm sunny spells. the breeze a little bit more significant on sunday. as we go on through saturday night, any other showers that popped up in england and wales will fade away quickly, we're and wales will fade away quickly, we' re left and wales will fade away quickly, we're left with a mix of cloud and clear spells. lots of cloud feeding into the north—west of the uk, still north—west scotland capable of seeing some patchy rain around and temperatures a little higher on saturday night for scotland and northern ireland compared with tonight and for many, holding around the mid teens. part two of the weekend on sunday, variable cloud,
sunny spells, dry for almost eve ryo ne sunny spells, dry for almost everyone but we've got some outbreaks of rain in north, north—west scotland, may just outbreaks of rain in north, north—west scotland, mayjust fringe into other parts of western scotland and northern ireland later in the day, more breeze here. warm way you get to see any sunny spells, very warm to hot in england and wales as temperatures again for east anglia and the south—east of england get close to 30 celsius. this weather front will be affecting parts of scotla nd front will be affecting parts of scotland and northern ireland into the start of next week with thicker cloud, bit of patchy rain in places. ahead of that in england and wales, we're drawing up some even hotter and it looks like parts of the east hock of around 30 celsius in excess particularly into eastern england. very when where we see sunny spells but the weather system affecting parts of scotland and northern ireland at the start of the weekend —— there were. go to the website for more. but you —— meriweather.
