and to be at war now unesco goodwill ambassador and peace activist she's received the peace prize awarded by the german city of dresden. and we'll have the latest from the berlin film festival where plans have been finding out what it's like to grow up in a tough neighborhood of naples in the movie. hello i'm terry march and welcome to the program the mexican drug lord known as el chapo is to appeal against the ten guilty verdicts handed down by a u.s. jury the lawyer for you joaquin guzman said the trial was unfair and declared the fight isn't over because man was convicted of running a massive drug smuggling operation and other related crimes he could now spend the
7:02 am
rest of his life behind bars the verdicts came after a three month trial in which jurors heard what's being called an avalanche of evidence against this month. joaquin guzman impassive even as he waited extradition to the u.s. seemingly snared for the final time after two audacious escapes and years eluding the authorities. the same stoicism was on display as the man known as el chapo was convicted of all ten counts related to decades of drug trafficking he gave his wife a thumbs up as he was led from the new york courtroom. to u.s. authorities meanwhile were in a triumphant mood. this conviction we expect will bring a sense of life without the possibility of parole is a sense from which there is no escape and no return. this conviction
7:03 am
is a victory for the american people who is suffered so long and so much want guzman made billions pouring poison over our southern border chrisman will likely be housed at this supermax prison in florence colorado known as the alcatraz of the rockies authorities are confident guzman won't find it as amenable to escape as the two prisons he sensationally broke out of in his native mexico. those escapes including one down a tunnel dug from underneath his prison cell toilet and a subsequent rolling stone interview with star actor sean penn have contributed to guzman's almost mythological status in his home country. there was a hollywood element to guzman's recapture by mexican authorities as they stormed his hideout in two thousand and sixteen they said later that el chapo was meeting with pan had been instrumental in leading them to him. but some of the charges that
7:04 am
got guzman convicted are anything but myths conspiracy to commit murder money laundering and a legit use of violence against enemies of his powerful cinna lower drug cartel. el chapo is set to be sentenced in june and will likely spend the rest of his life in jail his attorney says he will appeal the conviction. our washington correspondent helen humphrey has been following the trial and sent us this assessment for the u.s. government this guilty verdict is a moment in history after a decades long cat and mouse like game between your enforcement and the world's most wanted drug trafficker joaquin guzman known as el chapo time simply seems to be above the law he was the mastermind behind a network of tunnels allowing for the trafficking of tons of costs a drugs from mexico into the united states tunnels which also saw him escape from
7:05 am
prison on two occasions and in twenty seventeen mexico finally granted an extradition request from the united states fearing that if he continued to invade their clutches justice may never be served but as much as el chapo story seems reminiscent of a hollywood movie his crimes were serious at times very grisly they exposed corruption in many levels of mexican government and as head of the soon a low a cartel he pocketed some fourteen billion dollars he's now due to be sentenced in june and it's expected that this time he will spend the rest of his life behind bars. now to spain where there could be a stop election if the socialist government's budget plans don't get approved by parliament today prime minister peter sanchez is reliant on the support of two catalan pro independence parties to get his budget passed but it's unlikely he'll succeed because the catalan parties have so far given the budget

7:07 am
thousand last minutes decided to introduce this how the timing nation in those negotiations and that is how we got here they decided to vote taking the budget last week and bit of time to decided to remove he's all for dialogue but the prime minister has the youth youth he is always ready to talk with them but there's on the one red line which is this so that their nation. well certainly the president or the part of the prime minister rather is between a rock and a hard place there could the government fall over this budget. it is quite it's quite possible that the government will fall probably if the if they are not able to pass a twenty nine hundred nineteen budget is very possible that maybe even early next week by the sounds of we call them is not election and right now it's
7:08 am
just a matter of when the selection will take place. talking maybe at the end of april and then there's also the all the option. that would be in may this regional or local elections around the end of may and this and the general election would be probably together with those all the elections in a super sunday as we call it here in spain but at the moment we don't know if it's going to be earlier a brit or maybe later on may yes although if i understand you correctly it sounds like people really are expecting the government to fall over this if that were to happen what would that mean for the catalan independence movement. yeah it's almost sure that. once it is not able to pass the twenty nine thousand budget we don't know if the last minute the catalan pieties will change their minds i
7:09 am
don't think so that is definitely bad news for them in the mouth in the event of new elections and pressure lections in spain the future will be really think that the right wing parties and when the election they can form a coalition the people of piety the liberal democrats feel the latinos and their new fire right parties both they can form out for lucian and they are very very. strict and they have a different approach to the cattle and question and probably they will be. calling for. they would be reactivating their one hundred fifty five article of the constitution which means taking over and they've gotten that to outearn i mean and have direct rule of that's the only one from from spain and in the case of

7:21 am
a way to tell the story but at the heart of it it was a story about adolescence and its relationship to a certain type of criminality that you know. for everyone involved this story was deeply personal hundreds of thousands of people leave italy every year it's the only way for a poor young italian to find a better life except that is to be seduced by money guns and glory and turn to organized crime. lead actor francesco to napoli said he found it all too easy to identify with his character because he comes from as he put it a difficult area of naples. even though i've always worked to drive try to avoid them i know people like this who are gang members. everyone involved in this project clearly felt passionately about it these were non actors actually from the neighborhood in the film and the statement that the movie makes about life in southern italy makes it loki one of the most political films of the festival.

a direct comparison with the premier league we took a look at the differences and similarities between two of europe's european football's powerhouses. the oficial trailer of the english premier league sells itself as a global spectacle it is after all the richest football league in the world and for that reason also the most glamorous. of the ten clubs in the world with the highest revenue six are from england. the bundesliga trailer is somewhat more modest its strategy aims to play on emotions. on the pitch the bundesliga can still go toe to toe with the premier league when it comes to marketing strategies and t.v. revenues however there is a gulf between the two divisions for the schools of course the big money is going
