10:30 pm
hello. this is bbc news, i'm ben bland. this is bbc news with ben bland. the headlines at 11:00 — tiger woods gets his bite back. in one of the greatest comebacks we'll be taking a look at tomorrow in sporting history, morning's papers in a moment. the golfer wins the us masters first, the headlines. more than 10 years one of the greatest comebacks in sporting history — tiger woods wins the us masters, more than 10 years after his last after his last major title. golfing major title. my in other main news tonight, my mom was here. she was there in one person has died and 22 others are taken to hospital after a crash 1997 as well so i couldn't be more involving two cars and a double happy and more excited. i'm kind of decker bus on the isle of wight. it's been declared a major incident. ata happy and more excited. i'm kind of at a loss for words, really. the cabinet office minister david lidington says the government one person has died and twenty two and labour are "testing out" each other‘s ideas as they try to resolve others are taken to hospital after a crash involving two cars the brexit deadlock. and a double decker bus on the isle of wight. police name the nine—year—old it's been declared a major incident. the cabinet office minister, boy killed by a dog in a cornish david lidington says the government holiday park and reveal he'd been and labour will both have to compromise as they look to break left alone with the animal. sussex police tell the bbc that the gatwick drone attack, which halted hundreds of flights just before christmas last year, may have been an "inside job".
10:31 pm
hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are rosamund urwin, financial services correspondant at the sunday times and henry mance, political correspondent from the ft. many of tomorrow's front pages are already in. the daily telegraph. the greatest comeback since muhammed ali — tiger woods wins his fifth masters title — (ani — the guardian reports on housing campaigners hail a ground—breaking shift for tenants' rights — as the government announces plans for a consultation to scrap ‘no—fault evictions'. shamima begum has been granted legal
10:32 pm
aid to fight the decision to revoke her citizenship. the ft reports on the nhs topping up doctors' salaries with cash to help them avoid hefty tax bills from tighter pension rules that have already led to thousands retiring early. may must go in may — that's on the front of the metro — it says the prime minister faces calls to quit next month as polls show tory support has slumped again. well, let's get into those. the tiger roars, this is quite a comeback for him, isn't it? fantastic photo on the front page of the daily telegraph. extraordinary sporting comeback. 11 years after his last major golf championship and 14 his last major golf championship and 1a years after he last won this one. i was looking down a list of his injuries, he's had an extraordinary time over the past decade in terms
10:33 pm
of just time over the past decade in terms ofjust injury after injury. it's quite astonishing. this piece in the daily telegraph says he's become a fairly tragic figure, this assumption that he'd never regain his previous form. many stories where people try comebacks and they are in desperate and sad failure. i was thinking of nigel mansell coming back. there is this thing about people rooting for the underdog making a comeback. we saw the euphoria at augusta. the us masters crown isn't known for being overly effusive with their emotion —— the us masters crowd. tiger's reaction is welcome a realjoy, clenching the fist, but it was almost like the release you sometimes you see in people who have reached the highest pinnacle and feel lost. he knew
10:34 pm
exactly what this meant. i thought that the controlled joy was very striking. golf as a sport suffers when it doesn't have someone like tiger woods leading it. when roger federer leaves tennis, that sport will have a similar problem. the relief from his crowd and even the competitors, seeing the silver lining to their defeat. the future of golf is to get the big names, the longer they can hold onto tiger woods the better. how nice to have a cheery story leading the front page. makes a change! long time overdue. the latest on the brexit talks situation. some interesting use of language by the chancellor. some say perhaps ill—advised use of language. spreadsheet phil is being more exciting in his language than you would expect. he is seen as a
10:35 pm
sensible, perhaps boring politician but he is using some strong language about boris johnson and but he is using some strong language about borisjohnson and michael gove and andrea leadsom, who he describes as knifing herself, when she was running for leader against theresa may and her leadership campaign imploded with some comments about theresa may not being a mother and not understanding things. he's used the phrase unintended suicide pact about boris johnson and the phrase unintended suicide pact about borisjohnson and michael gove after their aborted leadership run. these are quite strong words. taking the story forward, he says we will have a very wide field in the next conservative leadership contest. he makes the joke that he's going to be about the only member of cabinet not running. interesting to see that. this is as speculation moves to how much longer mo has got. not very long would be the assumption but she's managed to hang on —— how much longer theresa may has got. repeatedly. written off. exactly.
10:36 pm
her remarkable skill, hanging on when everybody else would think it isa when everybody else would think it is a lost cause. interesting that philip hammond is talking like this. it feels slightly out of character but perhaps he feels free to say what he's been thinking for two and a bit years. he's not the funniest man, he sees himself as a bit of a grown up man, he sees himself as a bit of a grown up! man, he sees himself as a bit of a grown up i think in the current political scenario. he holds people like borisjohnson in pretty much contempt. this doesn't add much to out contempt. this doesn't add much to our understanding that what's going on but interesting that your chancellor, a senior minister, goes to washington and makes jokes about leadership contests and the prime minister's days being numbered. on brexit, i think we will go back to the summerof brexit, i think we will go back to the summer of 2016 when boris johnson, effectively won the referendum, combusted as a leadership candidate. that was a pivotal moment. let's stay on that
10:37 pm
similar theme, the metro. this is an indication from an opinion poll, the conclusion that theresa may must go next month. but of course, this crucial point in negotiations, it could set everything back. i know there is a six—month extension now until the end of october, and it could derail things seriously. and 110w could derail things seriously. and now we have the european elections coming up which we weren't supposed to be in. so absolutely, we assume the tory party are going to do badly u nless the tory party are going to do badly unless something extraordinary changes. they won't have a good result. nigel farage back on the scene with his brexit party. opinion polls are looking bad. in 2017 we saw an interesting return, so many pieces written about this, what looked like strict two party
10:38 pm
politics and then that was started ina very politics and then that was started in a very short time. so yes, labour is pulling ahead but it's not getting a sizeable chunk of the electorate collectively that they have been getting back in 2017. i think that's going to be, going forward , think that's going to be, going forward, for theresa may, the thing that might finally, despite her being this extraordinary hanger on, the thing that finally shoves her out the door. i think it will be difficult for her to hold onto her position if these elections go ahead. she can cling on by saying that they might be cancelled, we might geta that they might be cancelled, we might get a deal before the polls and therefore she won't look as silly as she is on course to do. evenif silly as she is on course to do. even if the conservatives do moderately badly, the fact of them going place would go strongly against her words and she will feel compelled to resign. these polls
10:39 pm
have huge uncertainties because you're asking people not about their headline intention, whether they like conservatives or labour, but a specific poll they've heard nothing about, where they aren't sure what's happening, and you have nigel farage's new brexit party, unknown entities. in this poll, they do well, 30%, ukip on 12%. one of those isa very well, 30%, ukip on 12%. one of those is a very new force in the public mind and there's a lot of fluidity. healthy note of coaching about those —— caution about those opinion poll results. the guardian about no fault renting. a growing number of people will be renters all their lives, a growing electoral force and this is good news for them. at the moment there are too many unacceptable cases of people being thrown out
10:40 pm
with very short notice periods, weeks. because you have more and more families who are renting, that is causing a lot of upset. parents panicking about having to find a place to live, school, that panic. this is good news and i think we're going to see more momentum behind tenants's going to see more momentum behind tena nts's rights and going to see more momentum behind tenants's rights and i think it's long overdue. this should have happened before. we will most toward something similar to the german system where tenants have a lot more powers than they do here. housing is one of those issues that has slipped down the agenda because politics has been so dominated by the focus on brexit. quite timely as we get towards local elections in parts of the country that this makes it back onto the agenda because it is such a big issue. yeah i think it's one of thoseissues big issue. yeah i think it's one of those issues where the consensus has shifted away from the previous
10:41 pm
conservative line towards more of a jeremy corbyn —type politics, intervening in the markets, cracking down on landlords who would often be conservative voters. one in four households renting accommodation. if you have the risk of being evicted, you have the risk of being evicted, you don't complain. you don't say the accommodation is up to standard. the daily, the case of shamima begum, who had her citizenship taken away. the teenager who fled to join is and then wanted to come home back to the uk. the daily reports she is being granted legal aid to fight her case. this will be extraordinarily unpopular. —— the daily mail reports. we created her, she should not have been stripped of citizenship or stop the polling is extraordinarily against her here.
10:42 pm
fresh allegations about her this weekend, that it wasn'tjust fresh allegations about her this weekend, that it wasn't just that she sat at home, according to the sunday telegraph, not that she just sat at home as an isis bride, that she was enforcing cruelty against women elsewhere. that is the allegation. this is going to be very unpopular. however clearly there has to bea unpopular. however clearly there has to be a debate about stripping someone to be a debate about stripping someone of citizenship and whether thatis someone of citizenship and whether that is an ok thing for the home secretary to do. to me it looked very knee jerk and i think we need to be having this conversation in a way that is less focused on her back the rights issue. the question of whether this is an ok thing for the home secretary to have done as a reaction to anger in the press about her and the media. i don't think you'll get many complaints from the broadsheets about this. when it came out, sajid javid raised a lot of eye brows out, sajid javid raised a lot of eyebrows in the decision because her
10:43 pm
claim to bangladesh citizenship is questionable and therefore the uk decision appeared to leave her status, which is illegal under international law. she has obvious grounds. you could argue this is not proportionate to what she has carried out. and it's about the most serious action the uk can take against a citizen, to strip them of citizenship. you would perhaps justify legal support on that basis. in this part of the press, she isn't going to have any friends. the last paper here, the daily star, millions bunking off work after last night's open it, a new series of game of thrones. really? —— last night's opener. the last time there was a new series of game of thrones it only got 150,000 viewers, sol
10:44 pm
new series of game of thrones it only got 150,000 viewers, so i don't think millions of people are even going to watch it this time, let alone take a sick day tomorrow. who knows? it may happen but i don't think so. we are not planning that, i'm assuming? of course! don't watch game of thrones, watch the papers, we finished much earlier and you don't have to call in sick tomorrow morning. that's it for the papers this hour. rosamund and henry will be back at 2330 for another look at the papers. next on bbc news it's click.
10:45 pm
welcome to atelier des lumieres, paris. a mesmerising new digital exhibition by culture spaces, a french museum foundation that specialises in immersive art displays. this former 19th—century foundry has been transformed to bring to life the paintings of vincent van gogh. it also gives visitors the chance to appreciate the influence japanese prints had on his work. the immersive audiovisual experience retraces the dutch master's life and work. using state—of—the—art visuals and 140 laser video projectors, the artist's works are transformed, becoming stunning moving images that are projected onto 10m—high walls. this truly adds a new depth to van gogh's work. you really feel you've been
10:46 pm
transported into his paintings. quite an emotional experience, i have to say. those behind the exhibition are also hoping that it will help to make fine arts more accessible, drawing in younger audiences who can interact with the projections and appreciate the masterpieces in a new and more modern way. first, another surprising instance where an old institution meets new technology, this time courtesy of the vatican. jen copestake has been investigating how the church is influencing robotic research. robots. these days they seem to be everywhere. from badminton courts... ..to restaurants... ..to monasteries... ..and factories. they're augmenting our lives
10:47 pm
in various helpful ways. with many countries facing an ageing population, issues such as elderly care and access to doctors are being taken on by roboticists. in policing and even warfare, autonomous systems are rolled out for police cars and drones. and with superfast 5g data networks around the corner, the capabilities of these machines could increase exponentially. this has led many to question the responsibilities that come with these capabilities. and the questions are coming not just from silicon valley but from the heart of one of the world's major religions. at the vatican, the catholic church has brought together scientists and ethicists to discuss these issues, and pope francis has written a letter, the human community, which emphasises the urgent need to study the relationship between humans and emerging technologies. the pope presented the letter to the pontifical academy for life to open the special conference called robo—ethics: humans,
10:48 pm
machines and health. one of the star attractions here is japanese professor hiroshi ishiguro, the creator of extremely humanlike robots. i am a humanoid. i am a copy of professor ishiguro. he has used them before to speak at his place in conferences but this
10:49 pm
professor ishiguro presented his vision of the future of humanity, a world where humans evolved into robots, leaving behind our organic bodies of flesh and blood. still, many here have doubts about this brave new world. this dream is a terrible dream. it is impossible to unify algorithms and love. algorithms and artists. it is crazy, it is part of us. i prefer our limits to our really good perfection.
10:50 pm
professor ishiguro said one day humans would want to give robots their own rights, as we grow in relationships with them and welcome them into our homes as companions and helpers. but this is not a view shared by european governments. we are not of the opinion that al or robots should have rights on their own. the rights pertain to people. if you imagine that someday there'll be a robot that completely behaves like a human being, moves like a human being, looks like a human being, has facial expressions like a human being, how then will you decide whether this entity has a soul or not? so we have to discuss that, what that means. for many gathered here, the idea of remaining human this week the european union published a set of guidelines
10:51 pm
for ethical artificial intelligence, warning algorithms must not discriminate based on a person's gender, race 01’ age. they suggested that in europe a person should always be told when they are interacting with an algorithm. a conversation which could not only affect our future of work, but also shape what defines us as human beings. the london games festival is a place where smaller indie games are given an opportunity to shine alongside more well—known triple—a blockbuster titles. kicking off the festival, egx rezzed is an event packed
10:52 pm
with as much buzz as big games. axiom football is a mixture of football and a third—person shooter, and you may think those things go together like fish fingers and custard, but after playing for a short amount of time you will learn that flying robots punting the ball down the pitch would probably improve things in the premier league. get that ball away from my goal... back of the net! developed by dundee—based studio earthbound games, the team behind axiom have plans to turn this fusion of football and flying machines into a spectator sport. it's notjust designed to be played, but to be watched as well. the streaming aspect of games has become huge over the past five years, so we believe over the next stage of spectators, will be interactive spectators, interacting in the way they would if they were at a live football match, for example. this collection of seemingly unrelated objects as a preview of the weirdness that is about to come
10:53 pm
when playing vr game a ton of feathers. there is still something i don't understand... you have constructed a set up here that uses some crt monitors, what looks like an old tape deck, and a cuddly toy. i wanted to create a spectacle for people watching. he was the last human we had... also, i want to leave people with something to take away from the whole experience, so the soundtrack of the game is processed through a tape deck with an audio cassette tape for the output, so people can take home a little cassette tape of their custom journey throughout the game. time to try it out. the game has a story of sorts, a mystery about a serial killer. you all are right in front of me, as clear as day. it quickly becomes less of a mystery to solve and more of a pixelated psychedelic journey,
10:54 pm
exploring what a game actually is. remove the plug behind you. it is like an 8—bit nightmare thought up by david lynch with help from max headroom. there is a parting gift, my audio recording of the whole experience. now all i have to do is find a tape deck. across town, here at somerset house, the now play this exhibition explores the artistic potential of gaming technology. everybody who knows anything about games knows that this is a nintendo entertainment system, so—far—so—mid—80s gaming platform. but a closer look at the controllers reveals that they've had all their buttons removed except for one. so, how are we expected to play games on this with just one button? well, with a little help from up to eight friends. each controller has just one button
10:55 pm
that performs a different function. run left, run right, jump, so on. in order to complete a game, a group of people must work together. about ten years ago in 2006, there was a forum post in the accessibility forums, and moderators there for different accessibility groups were wondering what the history of videogames would look like if they were one switch, accessible to folks with limited manual dexterity. the first post in the thread was a nintendo entertainment system controller with one a button. so i wanted to make that image real and see what happens to play. suddenly, tetris is notjust about fitting blocks together the right way, it is about deciding, as if by committee, where to put the blocks. so everything becomes multiplayer. that's it for the short cut of click from the atelier des lumieres, here in paris. there's much more in the full—length version,
10:56 pm
which you can see on iplayer, and you can find us all across social media, on youtube, instagram, facebook and twitter, at @bbcclick. thanks for watching, and we'll see you soon. good evening. it has been a largely dry, settled weekend across most parts of the country, but temperatures have been struggling, certainly below average for the time of year. now, here's the satellite image from sunday, and it shows we've had more cloud that's been working in from the west. so cloudier skies on sunday compared to what we saw on saturday, but that cloud is tending to thin and break through the rest of this evening and overnight. so it will be another chilly night, particularly through the central
10:57 pm
swathe of the country. further west, we've got a bit more cloud working in, so not as cold for northern ireland, wales, the south—west of england, but we could well see temperatures falling below freezing in the countryside for much of scotland and central parts of england as well. so a cold, frosty start to monday. and we'll see a bit more cloud in the east anywhere from lincolnshire towards aberdeenshire. more cloud also in the west, with a few splashes of rain. but in between, sunny spells, a little warmer than recent days with temperatures around 1a degrees, but still struggling around some of those north sea coasts. but you'll be pleased to hear those temperatures do rise, as we look towards the middle part of the week. bye for now.
