as here at the grand museum erected outside brussels by king leopold ii of belgium. it was built on the profits of forced labour in rubber plantations. those who failed to collect the quota had hands chopped off. african art was carted back here in vast quantities. but the museum has undergone a major revamp, to reflect the reality of colonial history. if you look there, you know, there's a hologram of leopold ii about six times here and in total about 45 times throughout the building. he wasn't a man for understatement, was he? but as for restitution, there are reservations about capacity and the dangers of corruption. do you trust the authorities in congo? no. to treat anything that is brought back with the care it deserves? at this moment, no, absolutely not. i wouldn't trust any of the people that are currently in charge. not that they are of bad will, but just they don't have the facilities.

there is no security system. a lot of these objects are worth a lot of money. people are paid very badly. what would you do if you were paid, you know, not even $100 a month? but african voices are insistent, change must come. in the democratic republic of congo we visited a fledgling museum in kinshasa that combines old colonial sculpture with this storehouse of congolese art. professor washna acknowledges the worries about corruption in congo. but a new national museum has been built with south korean help. a place that could provide a congolese home for looted treasures. translation: during colonisation belgium, england, america, unfortunately took a lot of the art. this is only a small portion of what can be found in europe, so we should claim them back. it's better that it's here, for the good of the congolese people. there is in africa and the west a growing view that
10:32 pm
collaboration is the way forward. exhibitions rotating between continents. like the benin bronzes of the british museum. it's a debate defined by reasonableness. not least on the part of africans, still willing to share what was stolen from them. fergal keane, bbc news. that's it from us. here on bbc one, it's time for the news where you are. goodnight. hello and welcome to sportsday. joe root‘s back amongst the runs with a century in the third test against west indies in st lucia.

position stop lost rory burns to the first ball of the day, keating jennings duggan couldn't find any rhythm in his batting. was unlucky to be out. there is clear? is over his future. england kind of cruised through the day and west indies lost one of their bowlers early on to injuries. it was a relatively undemanding day for england and the fa ct undemanding day for england and the fact that they batted well with a lot of control and not too many risks, almost makes how they played in the first two tests more frustrating that they finally seem to find a test match going having lost the series. the captain joe root managed to do just that, what did you make of his performance? root managed to do just that, what did you make of his performance7m was a good innings, i think one of his less demanding centuries and he had a curious time recently. very inconsistent whereas the peak year of his career, 2014 to 2017 was
10:35 pm
remarkably consistent, one of the most consistent players in text cricket. since then the 50s have dried up but he has started converting when he does get to 50. the last three he has converted to centuries, having failed to do so in his previous 11 years had a curious three months but at least england are emerging from this test with some positives from what has been a disastrous series up till now. they will be really motivated, it couple of players as well. just but they got a half—century. of players as well. just but they got a half-century. but there has played really well since getting his recall, a massive innings on the board. we were discussing what squirt demi needed to make himself a certainty for next time. —— what score denley needed. he was stopped early on on 12 and batted nicely. he without after a loose shot, not

really a loose shot but he did not get it right. missed a chance to establish himself. newcastle manager rafa benitez was left angered after a 95th minute equaliser meant his side missed out on an unlikely away win at wolves. they stay seventh as newcastle move a point above the relegation zone. ben croucher watched the 1—1 draw at molineux. when going to molineux which wolves will you see? the one that beat spurs and liverpool or the one to struggle against cardiff and huddersfield? it was the former in the first 45, forcing martin dubravka into a couple of saves. it looked to be a matter of time before they would be on their way to a fourth straight win. sometimes the closer they got to the newcastle goal though, the further away they were. the wolves lacked a bite. the magpies were the ultimate opportunists. fabian schar spotted the space, isaac hayden hit and hoped, rui patricio flapped at his posts. hunting for a point wolves went back to the longer range stuff.
