10:31 pm
hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are the broadcaster john stapleton and henry mance, political correspondent for the financial times. let's ta ke let's take a quick look at the front pages before starting our discussion. the observer has pictures of victims of the christchurch mass—shootings. it also claims that the eu is making plans for theresa may to lose the third meaningful vote on brexit. turning to the next paper... new zealand's prime ministerjacinda ardern meeting greiving relatives is on the front of the telegraph. the paper also reports on theresa may's task to win votes on tuesday. the mail on sunday says some tory mps are angry at the way comic relief portrayed poverty in the uk. more brexit in the sunday times, which says theresa may will tell
10:32 pm
conservative mps that brexit might not happen at all if they don't back her deal. a similar headline on the sunday express. it also has an image of mucad ibrahim, the three—year—old victim of the christchurch mosque attacks. those are the from pages so let's ta ke those are the from pages so let's take a more in—depth look at some of those. starting with the front of the sunday telegraph and the pages dominated by two stories. brexit and the tragedy that took place in new zealand. ourfirst the tragedy that took place in new zealand. our first story is going to be brexit and theresa may bags patriotic and peace to back her deal. again. mps, please save me. it is the same old and same old stuff from theresa may, what else can she do? we are perilously close to d—day and she wants her support. we had
10:33 pm
not seen elsewhere in the papers we've seen briefly, there are details of what she is saying and of course it is crucial, the dup mps and if they support her in this is possible hardline brexiteers and a ha rd possible hardline brexiteers and a hard line party will support our. when she seems to be saying in the telegraph at least if she will make sure it northern island and britain will not be treated differently in terms of the customs union and single market and she is also guaranteeing a much bigger say and future negotiations once we get the next stage. there is also the allegations swelling around that behind all this, she will offer more money and it will go on—site initially and she is offering them even more and that is based on the fa ct even more and that is based on the fact that the chancellor of the
10:34 pm
exchequer is involved in this as well and the allegations of the cash floating around as hotly demanded by the dup. i think if you are a centrist tory mp and are fed up of the dup having a strong grasp over the dup having a strong grasp over the government there is a telling line here that i think you have not seen anything yet because the line thatjohn mentions seen anything yet because the line that john mentions about the dup being deeply involved in the future negotiations is exactly the kind of thing that people in the centre of the tory party will be quite alarmed about i think. they are members of the conservative party and the idea of them calling the shots is uncomfortable. tory mps would like for the prime minister to reach out to people in the labour party who would go for a hurry deal plus a customs union or they would like to go down the norway route but it looks like she is sticking to her plan and maybe with some additional
10:35 pm
reassurances for northern island but not the softer brexit that some in her party would like to see. the idea that she mentioned, the guarantee that pe will not treat northern island and britain differently, did guarantees mean anything? it depends on what the eu said. it changes every day, doesn't it? or it seems to change to outside observers like myself. what goes on around it seems to change every single day and it reads the public com pletely single day and it reads the public completely and utterly bewildered and even less faith than what they have previously impolitic and it was in shambles and faith and the parliamentarians to sort out any mass is diminishing rapidly. we will stay with the same paper, the sunday telegraph but the other real big story at the moment obviously new zealand and christchurch. be take on this is a muscular visited the uk on
10:36 pm
a trip and effectively and ramped up his extremism. this is a potentially very worrying development that someone very worrying development that someone who is not on a terrorist watch list can travel internationally, can potentially become radicalised and their ideas and perhaps pick up contacts, and the authorities who are already trying to keep track of many people who are residents or simply do not have the resources or knowledge to keep an eye on this. and so, in that story we have details about that and we story we have details about that and we have calls from tom watson, the deputy leader saying social media companies whose role has been scrutinised already that they need to think and need to take their sites down after an atrocity like this he did not have people uploading so you and others say they cannot sort through the information. i think it is a good idea and i was
10:37 pm
mulling this over because as a generalist i have... sale i am fundamentally against any kind of censorship and it is a very difficult balance to say what is legitimate political interchange and what is hate speech and i think that isa what is hate speech and i think that is a very good idea. it is very difficult to get the social media companies to do what we asked them to do to they could be forced to do it, certainly and after this atrocity it would be deeply unpopular if they didn't and i think it isa unpopular if they didn't and i think it is a very sensible idea, and it depends on how long they freeze up for. another point on this is it affects security services around the world because they are now tracking this man and seeing when he has travelled and if he visited their countries. always after these kinds of attacks, a profile built up and
10:38 pm
we see of attacks, a profile built up and we see details and why have we not cited that at the time and the threat and some of these cases is changing so rapidly and radicalisation can be so quick and i don't like in a matter of weeks and it is difficult for the authorities to keep track. the observer also has the story on the front page and has some of the victims of the attack and starting to hear the stories now. and really moving stories they are as well. the observer piece points out that the youngest was three years old, the old sme one and a clean from all over the world and from areas of very serious conflict, afghanistan, syria, palestine and to new zealand which they thought understandably was a safe pay then, and christchurch is a lovely town, 400,000 people have a small town feel and i never forget 400,000 people have a small town feel and i neverforget what 400,000 people have a small town feel and i never forget what the police station was saying, i bet they did not have much to do here because it is a quiet and pleasant
10:39 pm
please do my place and everyone is polite to each other. they have a right to expect they will be safe and their lives to be peace. the one thing that horrifies me about this apart from the depths of 50 people, not to mention the many more seriously injured, was the reaction of people on the website and people cheering on and people with communications of national newspapers here, what are muslims doing in new zealand anyway? come on. there was a arrest, greater manchester police arrested a man for putting a post on social media. let's ta ke putting a post on social media. let's take you to the other story of the front of the is observers. can you really achieve this? it makes it sound more exciting than it potentially is, both sides will be trying to piece together what it
10:40 pm
will be but this is a diplomatic note and what they want is to ensure that any successor of theresa may will not unpick the deal. he goes to a fundamental lack of trust between people and less monster and landing field that you have taken advantage of them in the negotiations but brussels feels they need to get legal guarantees and very clear legal guarantees and very clear legal lock on the process because otherwise borisjohnson prime ministerand otherwise borisjohnson prime minister and say otherwise borisjohnson prime ministerand sayi otherwise borisjohnson prime minister and say i am not bound by anything theresa may and we are starting from zero which is the last thing that michel barnier want. they have to be prepared for her if she may not be there because they may not be there. no one in westminster is going to put the make that their house on if she is there, and she could lose one vote or another one.
10:41 pm
it does point out that labour might exploit it as an opportunity. it does point out that labour might exploit it as an opportunitylj think exploit it as an opportunity.” think they are waiting for labour to do something about this aren't we? who? let's turn to the times and it is brexit again on the front page of this paper and back my brexit or we will never leave. i think this is interesting because what we are hearing now is people are between a rock and hard place. it is the same message we rock and hard place. it is the same message we had before the prime minister. isn't finally working? that whole einstein thing about my nets about doing the same thing and expecting different results and she is doing the same thing and it may be that people are cracking. iain duncan smith saying the dup getting on board with the deal, brexiteers should come together. the problem is that the deal that was rejected last week is not going to change because
10:42 pm
there is no negotiations going on with brussels, it is the same deal that was rejected so it relies on the dup taking a look at the deal and saying i did not notice this bit before or know that you explain this but to me and makes perfect sense. the attorney general's legal advice is that there is a risk that the uk would be trapped in a backstop and that would be unacceptable for the dup. this does drag on as we well know, we would have to stand for the european elections and 30 years after the referendum, spending money and a european election campaign. same paper, back to new zealand again, and we are starting to hear the stories and that is one of those on the front page, the father and
10:43 pm
his father. this is a story and you can't look at the picture and see what happened when the shooting started, this guy went to protect his little boy and covered his little boy and a way that he cannot actually be shot while he and himself and the father was shot and he is seriously and hospital and his road to recovery will be a long one. it is an amazing story of courage by the staff and this is a picture of them on the ground there, his wife and the little boy. one of many stories that emerged from that yesterday in the last 48 hours. gorelick activity. we heard from the commissioner in one of things there is you have the victims families, not only having to deal with this but all say you have the muslim tradition that has to be observed,
10:44 pm
islamic law in terms of burying their dead but they are having to go through a postmortem which is seen asa through a postmortem which is seen as a desecration and they have to be buried quite quickly and that is not going to happen. they were talking about identifying the list of the dead and i think that there is goodwill from the world about how this is handled and yet the practicalities and the emotion will make this an incredibly difficult time for authorities in new zealand. either of you watch comic relief?” was out with my wife or a birthday treat. bbc bashing story basically, it says that it accuses people involved of comic relief like olivia coleman and ed sharon of being biased, attacking the government basically. and he was talking about
10:45 pm
poverty and kids who were starving in the third world and likened it to the plight of here in the uk and ed sharon was criticised for a part on the homeless when he tried to install railings and is accused of hypocrisy. the bbc is a of using it for a propaganda against the government. charity starts at home, people would say? this is pretty thin and it is one tory mp. you'll find links between people and i think that quote is particularly think that quote is particularly thin and this is trying to anger people on a sunday morning and it is a strange one. a look at the papers and we may have more coming at 11:30 p:m.. that is it for the papers and stay with us here on bbc news
10:46 pm
because at the next is the travel show. hello and welcome to the travel show. three months into 2019 and already we have plenty of ground to cover. we will take a look back at some of our favourite story so far this year. might mask started to fill with water and i panicked. oh my gosh. i thinki am fill with water and i panicked. oh my gosh. i think i am still recovering from that dragon dance in taiwan. more of that later on in the show. let's kick off by heading to paris. where back in february,
10:47 pm
christa got to see how the years have taken its toll on one of the city's most iconic buildings. notre dame cathedral is the city's most visited monument. 13 million people walk through its gigantic doors every year — that's twice as many as head to the eiffel tower. the cathedral was damaged in the french revolution, many of its figures were defaced, but there are sections that still remain from before the revolution and have been reconstructed since, like the last gentleman on the facade of the cathedral. —— the last judgement —— the lastjudgement right on the facade of the cathedral. although successive waves of restoration have maintained the cathedral's main features, some of which date back to the 12th century, maintaining the building is an ongoing challenge. pollution, acid rain and age are now eating up not only its fine details but also this building's actual structure, and it's particularly striking when you go behind the scenes here. up high at the back
10:48 pm
of the cathedral, a place that tourists don't usually get to see. notre dame looks so imposing from the street, towering down, this huge structure, but when you get up close, it's amazing to see how much the old girl kind of needs a helping hand. help is what michel is trying to provide. his charity, friends of notre dame, has launched an appeal that helps private donors to help pay for some of the most urgently needed repairs. you can see here we have parts that were at risk of falling, so we removed them and have stored them here. if we don't want the cathedral to collapse, we need to rapair, all these and all these pinnacles need to be replaced as well. but repairing and preserving mediaeval architecture doesn't come cheap.
10:49 pm
the french state actually owns the building and spends up to 4 million euros each year on the cathedral, but that's not enough and a lot more money is needed. it's estimated that it will cost at least 150 million euros to carry out all the essential structural work here, and it's a race against time. so how urgent are these repairs? they are very urgent because actually, the risk here is a structural risk on the walls of the cathedral, on the building itself. within ten years, we could have the cathedral completely down if we do not do anything. that's incredible. although it's hoped the private funds might help to save notre dame, the country is full of other beautiful, historic buildings that also need help, so the french government is trying out a new way to try and save at—risk churches, castles and chateaus. it starts with a trip to the local newsagent.
10:50 pm
12 million of these french heritage scratch cards are on sale across france. you can win big money and save monuments in one go. at 15 euro, this is not cheap, but 10% of the money from this will go to conservation projects. in total, almost 270 historical sites, from ancient monuments to churches and castles, will hopefully benefit from the 16 million euros raised so far. nothing. rien. at least it's for a good cause. christa in france back in february. as the ski season is starting to come to an end in europe, many winter sports destinations are looking at ways to keep us coming back once the snow disappears, as lucy found out when she headed to tignes in the french alps. hello. i'm here to try something a little bit different.
10:51 pm
0k. yes, that is a mask and regulator. i have been persuaded into ice diving. so once you're inside, we seal everything and you are completely protected from the water. for this, i will be wearing a dry suit. i will put some talc inside so the head can go easily into the protection. comedic music. it's a girl. laughs. it's definitely a complicated process getting ready, which is just adding to my nerves. you're sealed. the good news is i can't feel how cold it is out here, so... the lake i'll be diving into is right in the ski village of tignes le lac, just a stone's
10:52 pm
throw from the lifts. bye— bye. the more i stare at the ice, the more i think i willjust stick my foot in just to get an idea of how cold it is. so they said that i'm not going to feel the cold obviously, i do not want my body going into some sort of shock once i get into the water. i'm assured it will be fine but my mind is currently in overdrive. ijust want to get in now. you're in? perfect. dan will be staying above the ice, helping me and another instructor go under. it's not an activity can do as a group, rather one person at a time with an instructor, for safety reasons. and we rotate into the water now. my initial worries of freezing to death quickly melt away. perfect. bye— bye.
10:53 pm
but it didn't quite go to plan and i had to surface. so my mask started to fill with water... and i started to panic, so i was like out! speaking in french. after a little reminder about what to do, namely don't panic, i was mentally prepped for another go. i am ready to go back in, i was only down there for maybe a minute or so, but it is so pretty down there. just being able to kind of touch all the bubbles under the ice is really cool. 0k. this time, my mask stayed put, but we decided not to stray too far from the ice hole and my confidence returned. it's an otherworldly
10:54 pm
experience under the ice, cut off from the noise and distractions above, and it's surprisingly relaxing. only towards the end did my toes and fingers start to tingle a little bit. otherwise, the dry suit really did keep the cold out. for the really daring, it's possible to also free dive. probably not for me though, i much prefer having the oxygen tank. to finish this week... i am about to ta ke to finish this week... i am about to take a challenge in front of a crowd who have very high expectations, let's hope i can pull it off. the annual italian arts festival in a local dance company invited me to ta ke local dance company invited me to take part in a performance. for today's prayed. it is held every
10:55 pm
year close to taipei and teams from across the country come to celebrate music and dance. it is a big high—profile event so my team are taking a real risk by letting a total milf stomach know this join their ranks. —— a total novicejoin their ranks. —— a total novicejoin their ranks. —— a total novicejoin their ranks. i am so nervous and i do not want to make a total fool of myself in front of this a crowd. there is at least a thousand people here and it is a lot more than i thought. tell me when, now? and all ofa thought. tell me when, now? and all of a sudden i am on. my mind seems to go totally blank once all the noise and colour but likely roger is there to give me a place in the right direction. somehow the team follow my lead although i really have no idea where i am going. and
10:56 pm
then my big dragon steak seems to develop a mind of its own. sorry! i was really nervous. and it was quite stressful. oh my gosh. i tried to remember my minutes and i think i only had two people. but it was exciting. something tells me they will not be inviting me back anytime soon. bettis and for this week and coming up next week... she has buy to go behind the scenes of the hotel and the world's tallest tower when they get big on sustainability. we throw any food that is left off of people's plates. it smells gross and i don't want to get my hair and it. if you would like to see longer
10:57 pm
version of the show, you can see it on iplayer and from all of us here on iplayer and from all of us here on the travel show, it is goodbye. that evening, what a day of whether it has been, four seasons in one day and heavy rain, gale force gusts of wind and sunshine and heavy snow as well in the north in this picture comes from a weather watcher and aberdeen share where we are still seeing some of the hill snow through this evening and overnight as well. the bulk of the heavy rain will clear over at the next few hours and still some very gusty winds to come here. the rain eases and wins ease out as well and still plenty of showers packing in from the northwest during the course of the night and going to sleep and snow and thunder next and and temperatures close to freezing so a cold start to send it with some icy stretches on any untreated surfaces
10:58 pm
and the north. a less dramatic date weather—wise and sell at risk for northerly wind and some showers driving in from the north and sleet and snow over the higher ground here and snow over the higher ground here and temperatures around about 7—10d but feeling cold when you add on the lien that mike windt shall. goodbye for now. —— add on the wind chill goodbye for now.
