this is due to be a news line from berlin bracing to beat the brits that deadline the british prime minister is under pressure to deliver her plan for breaks in five brussels and berlin are hardening stances chancellor angela merkel is threatening to boycott sunday's edu sometimes also coming out for a nation ravaged by violence and that the u.s. secretary of defense says yemen's warring parties have agreed to peace talks.
i'm sorry so much got to thank you for joining us british prime minister theresa may is racing against the clock to win support at home and abroad for her breaks that plan the e.u. was set to vote on sunday and may still has to convince the skeptics in her own party who are calling it a sellout now the actual breaks it was drawled deal was secured last week may and the e.u. are now negotiating a declaration on future relations between the u.k. and the bloc may has been seeking possible concessions but her prospects aren't good. theresa may is hoping the road to success at home might just run through brussels together with e.u. chief john claude juncker she's trying to hammer out the text of a draft deal governing her country's future relationship with the e.u. but a two hour meeting behind closed doors only yielded a pledge to talk more we've had a very good meeting this evening we've made further progress and as a result we've given sufficient direction to our negotiators i hope for them to be
able to resolve the remaining issues and that work will start immediately i now plan to return to further meetings including with president on saturday to discuss how we can bring to a conclusion this process and bring it to a conclusion in the interests of all our people by fighting for a better deal in brussels may could boost her chances of winning parliamentary approval for her plan before meeting with junker she again made her case to skeptical lawmakers at home. if you look at the alternative to having that deal with the european union it will either be more uncertainty more deficient or it could risk no brics it recent polls show that actually a cost majority of people would like no represent at all the prime minister didn't charge so the question is this the final deal or not beyond her domestic critics fresh concerns from abroad over the status of the disputed british territory to
proctor spanish prime minister pedro sanchez says he wants assurances that madrid will be able to negotiate the future of gibraltar directly with the u.k. muscle building which may be that we have told european commission the institutions of the e.u. and also view not to kingdom this is an essential point for a pro european government like the government of spain. if it's not solved by sunday spain as a pro european government will have to vote and use its feet. with just days to go before the e.u. was expected to sign off on britain's divorce from the bloc there was an extra pressure from german chancellor angela merkel she says she won't negotiate with me at the summit and could boycott sunday's meeting unless the draft deal is agreed in good time. right so where do things stand let's bring in our correspondent barbara basell is in london and i cared much as he is in brussels good morning good
to see you both know the draft deal of barbara is done what are they still negotiating at this point they're trying to figure out where the trees are made can get some further presence from the european union and that can only be done in the so-called declaration for the future economic relationship between the two sides because the divorce deal those five hundred eighty two pages of legal language that the british cabinet agreed to graduate last week is supposed to be done and dusted book closed but on the other side the twenty two pages of diplomatic lofty language theresa may hope hopes to insert a clause that will somehow open the door again for northern ireland and the so-called technical board a solution that would be an invisible border. watched over by technology that doesn't exist yet the e.u. had said let's not talk about something like that that we can see that britain is
trying to get it on the other hand what she also wants is more reassurances towards friction is trade for the future she can get that time will tell but there's not much of it or a care what's come to you in brussels now these twenty two pages that barbara as just mentioned what is the e.u. looking to get out of negotiations at this point. looks to me the use keen to get an orderly breaks and to get a clearer vision of where things will be heading beyond the point where we have the divorce settlement in the divorce settlement itself the u. is looking for three key things they want the northern irish problem sorted out and as barbara has mentioned so make sure that there is no hard border they want clarity on citizens' rights and of course they want to press the bill of the money that the u.k. that still needs to pay the european you're new to be settled as well so in short they want some guarantees so could this be rail things scared if there's not an
agreement and put the summit that's was to take place on sunday in jeopardy and it really depends what theresa may ones from that political declaration brussels is prepared to throw her a bone but they will certainly not cross the red lines in order to do that and when it comes to the sticking points from the euro zone european partners. gibraltar all fishing rights imagine breck's it as a triathlon we're on the finishing line of this divorce deal but the moment athletes come out of the water they'll still have to get on bicycles they will have to run a marathon until the final line of the final price of deal will come so there is lots of room to tackle all sorts of problems and that is the message that the european institutions are conveying to member states hold your fire keep some problems for later on just imagine those leaders running triathlons garrick sense of that image there of barbara just one more question to you know what these last
minute negotiations here what is teresa mayes goal is she trying to really get some concessions for this future relations document or she trying to prove to her critics that she's putting up a fight. i think it's really both because we shouldn't underestimate the tradition of the choreography of the big is summits like this and big international agreements part it's just part of the game to show that you're in it for everything till the very last moment that you're fighting for your own people was all your might and strength and so on and so forth so of course part of this is just to show up on the other hand to resume a really nice to show her critics that she manages to draw at least the slightest concession just one little goody back home to tell them yes i wrangled this at the last moment from the e.u. and they're ready to sort of give us some further concessions what ever is behind it however legally non-binding all this might be so yes it's a show but also she needs
a bit it's suppose all right our correspondent garrick matters in brussels barbara basal in london thank you both. now to some other stories making news around the world chinese media say at least five people were killed in eighteen injured after a car plowed into a crowd outside a primary school of the incident took place in a province in northern china the driver has been taken into custody a south korean pastor has been sentenced to fifteen years in jail after he was convicted of raping members of his church a rock is the leader of a congregation with some one hundred thirty thousand members a twin part charges against him. u.s. chief justice john roberts and president donald trump have clashed over the independence of america's judiciary these images are from trump's inauguration roberts rebuke strong for denouncing a judge who ruled against trump's i sought asylum policy robert said an independent

marchesa is following the story for us hi mark why is this album so significant well it is something that was for the beatles a creative swerve after the uber and and high color of saddam pepper's lonely hearts club band we have this minimal white album with the beatles embossed on the front numbered for the first few thousand dish use we call it the white album it's actually called the beatles but obviously because it's white it's got this moment. it's minimal artistic but it lacks the creativity of sergeant pepper that was very tightly controlled instead it's a much more chaotic almost rambling record full of different styles a real mismatch mix match of fingerpicking folk song god experimentalists humorous songs like the deal but which we heard earlier and also use a real cut kind of step into more heavy rock tones back in the u.s.s.r.
kicks off the record held to scale so which is quite a scream even now out of course revolution which is a bit more laid back but has a very rocky style and i think we're going to hear some of that now. say red. you tell me that it. is the way. the. market is white album fit into the beatles larger story well it's really part of that historical record because historians will talk about that but it's also important to remember that it came out in one thousand nine hundred sixty eight the
sixty eight revolutions are on the street that's what that song is about within the beatles that was a revolution of its and it was the beginning of the band almost splitting up yoko ono john that is late wife was attending the rest of the rehearsals contributing to some of the backing tracks and some of the ideas for some of the some of the songs and at some point they were frictions between john paul george and ringo at one point ring go even left the band but was rude back in to the to the fold when the other three cent filled his hotel room full of for the flowers to get them to come back and play drums for them. george martin the producer was somewhat sidelined he sort of sat at the back of the studio and read the newspaper and ate chocolate according to some anecdotes and most interesting lee it's a disarmingly personal record in places there's one song judea written by john lennon which is recollection of his that mother which is achingly beautiful the opening line of what i say is meaning less is really wonderful poetic avocation of
his craft as a songwriter all right well celebrating fifty years of the white album marcus miller thank you so much for joining us. now it's been a long time coming but tourists in rome can now become digital time travelers and step back into the days of the roman empire rome reborn as the largest computer simulation in the world so far for years u.s. researchers have been digitizing all existing information and now they've recreated the entire city as it stood about seventeen hundred years ago. cutting edge computer technology that takes us back in time a bird's eye view of engine room around the year three twenty at this point in history the eternal city was at its zenith there were about one million inhabitants almost fifty thousand homes to amphitheaters twenty eight public libraries and thirty six triumphal arches. it was the cultural and political center of
a vast empire here power and might were not just wielded they were chiseled into stone. rome's opulence economy was at the time financed by the spoils of war but the wind of change was blowing constant in the great was the first emperor to tolerate christianity and you currency was introduced society was reorganized. this digital project was twenty years in the making. but i'm going to show a slide today which has over fifty people we think of accurate list would be at least one hundred people who have contributed in one way or another rome reborn cost three million dollars to develop it was created with the forty million tourists in mind who visit the eternal city every year and also for those who stay at home. press officer with business now and the japanese carmaker nissan pondering whether to oust the company's chairman that's right this crucial meeting has been
going on over at the headquarters of nissan in tokyo for quite a while now according to unnamed sources the board is split over what to do with chairman carl is gone because of a lack of information mr gone is accused of severe financial misconduct and has been taken into custody earlier this week but the circumstances of his arrest are giving rise to speculation and raise questions about the future of the complex automotive alliance he's been having for two decades. carlos ghosn has plunged from the plush surroundings of his executive suite to a spartan cell behind the walls of this tokyo jail. rumors that nissan executives were behind his fall from grace spread from france to japan as fast as global media could. feel good in one thought the sort of the who to talk to those who didn't like him denounced him internally to make him.
journalist caught up with nissan c.e.o. he. in front of his house they were eager to hear if in fact going had been working on a complete reno nissan merger before his arrest. i haven't heard that. karl is going is one of the most successful auto company managers of all time in one thousand nine hundred six he began restructuring filling french car maker renault three years later he engineered the alliance with nissan he soon had this company back on the road to success as well. renault holds a forty three percent stake in nissan giving the french a lot of power in the company right through to even appointing the nissan board the japanese company has only a fifteen percent stake in renault leaving it with no effective boat or power in its punch partner. a complete merger would have cemented nissan's position as the
weaker partner even though the company is performing better than renault. the rest has now raised concerns that the renault nissan alliance could collapse something the japanese government wants to avoid. again what's important for now is to ensure the alliance between nissan remained stable. carlos' career appears to be collapsing however he is suspected of underreporting his income by several million euros over a five year period as well as misusing company assets for personal gain could face up to ten years in jail if he's found guilty. for more on the story let's bring in custom stoffel our he is a professor of strategic management management at warwick business school in the u.k. and a commentator on the car industry come to the program christian we've seen that this is a very complex alliance with the much smaller rental having
a big say in the much larger nissan do you think it's possible that mr goans downfall is politically motivated to shift the division of power in favor of the japanese. well at the moment this is pure speculation but it's possibly what i do think would be surprising if. you miss and haven't known about these dealings in their arrangements for years you have youth not too long ago had the whole big folks walking story where in the beginning it was always an attempt to claim intern if you can the roof. executive if so what actually engineer is but it became more and more clear that it was white unknown what's what's going on so i would expect that people were at least in the know whether this was done in an attempt to protect themselves whether it was a consequence if you whistleblower laws in japan might become clearer in the days to carlos' management shake up like this would be a good time to overhaul this entire collaboration. so i don't think that
the duration the will fall apart days too much integration between nissan and renault into production to develop new products is beneficial to go sorry it's but what could should you have been always expected to happen is that nice and tries to shift some of the power within the organisation i would be cautious to say that this is going to work. to manage and miss and would like to do for some stock thank you very much for weighing in on this discussion. so some strategic questions about the future of this alliance remain for more let's cross over to paul chris and brit sees our correspondents standing by at the frankfurt stock exchange chris and call is going is known as a costcutter someone that stands for profitability so investors might be say it must be said if he should indeed be also. well there are already said you can see
that the share price. dropped more than eight percent drop more than five percent. since the announcement of the allegations and yes go in is known as a cost cutter he completely reversed the fate of bruno's last making south america branch by. restructuring he did the same in one thousand nine for. by by cutting jobs by closing them plants so very very drastic measures others see him as a visionary he was one of the first to believe in electric cars and was was important in starting with a nice and leave in two thousand and ten when other car makers still don't have an all electric car out today and he is the architect of the alliance of this huge global alliance that sold ten point six million cars in the past year. and he's considered to be critical in unlocking more of that value so what do investors think is the best way forward now for this global alliance to call it was going as
been heading for two decades. so number one is of course to clear up all the question marks so what has really happened and who knew there were more people involved and the second is to keep that alliance stable that exists because that pure size is a market power and that's needed to share the costs of research and development in a time of electrification of more time in the cars and in the time we're work companies like apple and google are also looking into the car market and trying to steal out their share. holders to britain from first thank you. and staying with the automotive sector the trump administration has invited the heads of germany's three largest car makers to the white house meeting with the chief executives of fox wagon b.m.w. and dimer could take place soon as next week president has repeatedly threatened to
