6:02 pm
from steering europe in the direction when so far he wants to push europe to the right well barbara just how likely is it that salvini as a vision will become reality will these right wing parties become a major force in the european parliament. now after this austrian scandal we see what can happen is these parties are not very reliable partners in several countries driven by scandals so bunchy your salvini will have to do without the boss and friend karl-heinz stuff but today and he is not going to be hearing on the stage here the 2 have been close for a while they have sort of talked to each other up and they have sort of demonstrated public the their friendship there were selfies with the 2 of them together and so on and so forth so they were really trying to sort of push this business of getting europe pulling europe to the right to the front and no 70 has

6:05 pm
with 900000000 voters india is the world's largest democracy and the run up to the 29000 election fake news about sitting prime minister narendra modi and his b j p party flooded social media like. unesco declares narendra modi to be the best prime minister in the world the picture is real the headline is pure fiction these stars support the b j p really it turns out the writings on the. scarves was photo shopped for this crowd of mostly supporters it looks vast but it was just a photo montage the problem isn't just in india social media is full of fake news and the worst part is this is where uses get most of the information. some $300000000.00 indians use facebook more people than any other country shop owner
6:06 pm
ram shankar arrives for example spends about 2 hours each day on social media reading up on news and this year's election. when i watch news i obviously consider it to be true news is so popular in india how can i consider it false. the problem is that many people believe what they see on social media that makes online rumors and this information so effective in india lots of fake news tends to get shared through whatsapp and who would distrust their friends right now facebook which bought the messaging service in 2014 has begun to tackle the issue by limiting the number of people users can forward content to only time will tell if this will help rid was out of fake news experts i'm convinced from now this information just keeps spreading but why do some people create fake news in the 1st
6:07 pm
place. social media is popular with anybody eager to spread their worldview. and fake news tends to get created and shared to sway political opinion or to sow discord. anyone who only gets their news from alternative media outlets and on social media risks falling for dissin from asia and getting trapped in a filter bubble much of this content is simply false and designed to get people worked up. mention of through that switch off switch to hunt. fake news can be chain letter to users because their data is tracked and analyzed on social media. i'm going. to find a facebook page like if you don't like my page i can now look at your profile and see what topics you talk about in your sentiments about the stuff and how positive or negatively you talk about those things so now i can advertise to using your
6:08 pm
specific keywords that you use with the same sentiments that you use i'm using your data to persuade you the way i want you to be persuaded. and users can monetize fake news to the more attention and clicks it garners the more advertising revenue a user can make. fake news can generate immense advertising revenues in fact many people in the north macedonian town of dallas got rich producing fake news in the 2016 u.s. presidential race. france has shocked the world endorses donald trump for president clinton e-mails linked to political paedophile sex ring. fake news stories like these were produced by a group of students from north macedonia during the u.s. presidential race and 2016 they were based in the city of venice which underwent major deindustrialization after the disintegration of yugoslavia many factories shut down and unemployment was high so creating fake news presented
6:09 pm
a great opportunity. to make some fast cash how step one create a website and a facebook profile with a catchy name start posting plagiarized or made up new stories with sensational headlines step 2 create by fake facebook accounts and use them to share links to dubious fake news content this led unsuspecting social media users to the macedonian fake news sites as more and more users visited the sides google increased its advertising which in turn meant the students earned more ads revenue . the fake news gold rush was kicked off by businessmen. he gives online marketing courses and says he accidentally helped donald trump win the u.s. presidential election. purely motivated by money. political news generated.
6:10 pm
more and more political news. at 1.140 fake news websites were registered some were so good at spreading fake news they were making several 1000 euros a day huge earnings in a country where the average income is just 360 euros a month. frenzy continues. facebook. taking down another one appears somewhere else most of us would probably say we're not that easy to trick. something online because it's funny because it confirms our beliefs without carefully checking the facts 1st. today the sheer amount of content on social media is simply too much for most people to process. the
6:11 pm
ordinary person and by that i mean pretty much everyone including myself as a media professor is overwhelmed by the quantity of online content. we are unable to johnson the quality and accuracy of all this content. we're basically drowning in information. informants who want to. manipulators capitalize on this information overload they deliberately disseminate controversial content on social media making it look like people are sharing it. and then it's our social creatures. if we feel there's a majority opinion on an issue we tend to side with it. the problem with digital platforms is that they're full of people and opinion. and we're unable to tell if they're genuine or just thoughts churning out $28.00 versions of the same opinion.
6:12 pm
social bots are computer programs designed to post vast amounts of content on many different platforms they can create fake trends and make certain stories look more relevant than they really are. artificial intelligence is making fake news even harder to spot it can manipulate video material in such a way that makes it nearly impossible for users to tell what's real and was not present trump was a total and complete of cause obama never really said that the video was produced by american filmmaker jordan peele interest to highlight the dangers of so-called deep faith in video today anyone can access the software needed to make one's algorithms keep getting smarter they can already transfer one person's expressions to a different person's face in real time just imagine you could easily put together

6:15 pm
k.-i is working on a news verifier software professor and his team want to use algorithms to help detect fake news by identifying the kinds of images used. the idea behind the software is to check whether the images used are authentic to verify if they really depict what they claim to show and if they've been used in the correct context we check if the text accompanying the image actually fits the picture. the software for instance quickly detected that this picture of a brutal police crackdown 1st appeared online in 2011 it was a regionally taken during egypt's tahrir square protests the software also flags when images are shared online again at a later time in 2013 for example a twitter user from venezuela. the image and falsely claimed it depicted protests in his home country this is it the picture was removed from its original context the purpose of this was to generate the impression of

the destruction of this government. role was the goal of that illegal grubby smear. so it's not that sort at 11 am i met the chancellor sebastian courts there i offered him my resignation as vice chancellor of austria. and he accepted that. well joining me now in the studio is void schmidt he's an investigative journalist at the magazine dish beagle which published extracts of this covert video so mr schmidt thank you so much for joining us now we've just seen the vice chancellor of austria resign in the wake of this damaging video being published is this the outcome that your publication expected by publishing and. we didn't expect it but
6:55 pm
we thought it might be a possibility because the video it's really damning it's. the things he talks about the way talks about things so we didn't expect it but we thought it might be a possibility well the video seems very carefully planned and filmed in good quality and executed but we do know that nowadays there's a lot of technology that can doctor videos that can be faked are you certain that the video is authentic that we are absolutely certain the thing is we got a hold of the video and we of course knew it's. all those questions you know we thought we have to make sure that it's not a fake that it's not been doctored so we asked 2 experts with their institutes to check out if there's any. any way you can tell that it's manipulated and there's had no it's not manipulated. we asked for and sic experts to look if it's the same people if it's the place a location if it's a location we think it is and they checked and and so on and so on so we were very
6:56 pm
sure that it's not been manipulated and that's the real shows the real politicians but then again they didn't deny anything and so. absolutely sure that's that it's real and it's shows what they were saying there and it was well both your magazine dish people and these idiots have tied to a newspaper have been reluctant to name your source but what can you tell us about where you got your hands on this video or at least how. you obtained the video that's right we can't talk about sources we never do that and understandably. the thing the thing i can tell is that we heard about the existence of the video a while back but we actually took skill this month and we got a hold on it and their hands and then we would check that and we made sure that it's not been manipulated and. we were we thought it's in the public interest to to
6:57 pm
publish parts of it and because people need to see the information or the way because talks about politics and about media and so on and so on and so on the public interest to see i would say his real face so you mentioned that you've actually had this video already for about a month is that i don't know where you got it this month you received it this month ok so you've had it for a while let's say and yet the timing of its publication is also quite significant we're seeing european elections just a week from now there's this far right rally taking place today in milan was this intentional to release it now we didn't have the intention to release it just right now but we got like i said we got it this month so i don't know a couple weeks weeks ago and we just needed to take the time to really check that it's authentic that is real and it's almost 7 hours long and shot from different
6:58 pm
angles in different rooms. and we had to had to transcribe and translate parts of it parts of his russian so it wasn't that easy to say ok let's just publish it the next day we had to ask those experts from those institutes of hono for instance which was of involved for example and we asked them to try to look at their real thorley so that took some time and now we had to we had to publish it and you know people have asked us if we would have sat on a till after the election and why did you publish before the election so it's it's a tough call all right well if the to mention it to an investigative journalist at the magazine spiegel thank you so much for your time welcome thank you. well it was forced to pull out of a rally in milan today that i mentioned it's where an alliance of far right parties from across europe is meeting ahead of next week's european elections they're hoping to forge a new grouping in the e.u.
6:59 pm
parliament following that vote the event in milan is being hosted by italy's deputy premier and interior minister matteo salvini who's also a leader of the far right league party and among the most high profile speakers expected are moving the pan of france's national rally and the leader of germany's far right a deep party you're going to him. our correspondent covering that event for us and joins us now from milan so this event is of course being hosted by italy's foreign deputy prime minister matteo salvini what is he hoping to achieve today. and what she wanted to do was have a triumph here in the. in milan to because you want to show that he can after years of squabbling united all of most of the extreme right wing parties in europe and what the ultimate goal of that is is to form is
7:00 pm
a big and strong coalition in the european parliament in order to change e.u. politics in order to drag the problem into the rights and influence lawmaking of cory's and one particularly a more salvini is to change the rules for the euro he wants to make them much looser because he wants more money to spend more money in italy and increase the italian dad something that the northern countries germany for instance have so far always said no to so that is what he wants and of course this struck fair throws a shadow over what was supposed to be a wonderful triumphal afternoon here in milano barbara do you think it's likely that they'll somehow mention this scandal in austria at today's far right rally. we don't know yet but there have been already reactions marine le pen was asked what she said to that and 1st she said no she wouldn't comment this was austrian
7:01 pm
domestic politics but then she said no i mean we have to look at the timing off this publication and wasn't it suspicious that it came just a week before the european elections so of course there are conspiracy theories now beginning to emerge and salvini himself has already reacted in a sort of belleek way of painting himself as a victim. of all sorts of attacks from the outside against his lens so there are the 1st ripples appearing on the surface off the far right gathering here in italy are w.'s bob reporting for us from milan we thank you for that. now let's turn to some of the other stories making headlines around the world breaks it talks between the u.k. government and the opposition the labor party have collapsed the talks have been underway for 6 weeks in an effort to break

7:05 pm
finance surface right there's. story pretty good the political elements around this to create and have a major interest in destabilizing europe and i fear that they will succeed should not feel tense opponents patriot's with views close to his of course he's defending his country they're also pretty. we set out on a tour of several european cities together daughter bella and it's french partner station france $24.00 investigated russian influence on europe's far right. the russian embassy in berlin which dominated the then socialist east germany more

7:07 pm
marco's phone my eye has long presented himself as a friend of moscow whenever possible with his close confidant manuel ox and ita many photos of the 2 friends can be found on the internet. oxon vita is known as a right wing populist who aggressively seeks closer relations with moscow even more so now since the ukraine conflict he often gives interviews to russian nationalist media we need to plan for the future and i hope that we start with planning that we can leave nato in 5 to 10 years when hostilities commenced in eastern ukraine oxon vitae was seen in the company of the separatists leaning toward russian president putin he started himself an election observer posing for photos with other foreigners such as a group of french fighters. the
7:08 pm
conflict in ukraine caused a rift between moscow and the european union it began with russia's annexation of crimea in march 24th teen and deepened when moscow was found to be arming the separatists in eastern ukraine. this proved to be a geopolitical turning point. for the militants and because of that scene especially trained they mobilized or they made relations between the european far right and moscow more active after the start of the russian and russia was sanction and as a response to those same russia would try to interfere in the elections. even at that time putin was establishing contact with the head of italy's far right leg a north party my tail. now in a high position in the italian government. 5 years later with the european election approaching salvini is promoting closer cooperation between the right wing populist
7:09 pm
parties including germany's a.f.d. . and if we join salvini. and others in one big group will have the political clout that a lone warrior doesn't have to form policy of the company truck the a.f.p. decided to take a pro russian stance falling in line with all other european right wing populist they rejected western sanctions against russia over its interference in the conflict in eastern ukraine and after 5 years of building alliances with europe's right wing extremists moscow scored a victory among the key operators were various shadowy figures such as manual ox and ida in november 2014 he was photographed in eastern ukraine together with a frenchman victoria lanta an ex french soldier posing with sympathizers from france. they all share right wing views and hatred for liberal democratic values. far right organizations and passes.
7:10 pm
some of the few. political forces in europe that are still ready to cooperate with the kremlin the kremlin needs. lies in the west. in 2018 france's yellow vests movement took their protests to the streets in the spring the former soldier and mercenary in eastern ukraine viktor lanter turned up again he was a member of a self-appointed security team. where the marshals the prefecture asked for when it required every demonstration must have an internal security service is that when you're also a yellow vest yes of course what's your goal this time is it going well. you're going to listen as i said we're here because the prefecture call for
7:11 pm
a security service one that prevents any and all violence internally. we want to show the french people the prime minister and the government to divide doesn't come from us we would usually from a provocation by the police who. you are cannot a. french right wing extremist victrola into transitions from the war in eastern ukraine to the streets of paris. but in both cases as a hatchet man for putin's interests. here. publicly the russian president cultivate his relations with the heads of europe's far right groups like marine le pen of the national rally. you know so i know that you represent quite a fast growing element of european political forces. it's a very profitable contact the pen's party has taken out a total of 11000000 euros in loans from banks close to the kremlin has funding for
7:12 pm
recent presidential election campaigns and she maintains very high level contacts with moscow such as t.n.a. mariani explant secretary of state for transport he has switched to the national rally and supports russia's annexation of crimea. issue i've been there more than 10 times so nobody can seriously doubt that the people there would rather live under russian control. now he's running for the e.u. parliament and takes a clear stance on russia. continuing the policy of sanctions punishes europe and our own farmers as much as russia but suicide. observers say russia seeks to expand its influence in europe by supporting right wing populist leaders as well as their extremist voter base. is. the idea is to fan the flames constantly
7:13 pm
with gasoline and his people who already stirred up against each other well it's by remaining propaganda a propaganda aimed at fracturing our society. in france the yellow vests protests against the populists room to maneuver almost every weekend people take to the streets of france to demonstrate. a court proceeding in this southern polish city has thrown unexpected light on russia suppose it methods of peddling its influence to europe's right wing base. the defendant is michelle p a right wing radical on trial for terrorism since early 2019. he's accused. having organized an arson attack in neighboring ukraine. specifically in who's who bought western ukraine home of many ukrainian citizens from the hungary an ethnic minority on the night of february 4th 2018
7:14 pm
a surveillance camera recorded 2 men trying to throw molotov cocktails at a building used by hungary an association. they caused only minor damage. the defense attorney explains his client's motives. competition of the controlled operation was planned to inflame ethnic tensions in the western ukraine in province of. vehicles and you're. talking turkey it was calculated to trigger hostility between the hungary and minority on one side and the ethnic ukrainians in the other part of the region. not on the vertical and not up as a couple of partial it coincides with moscow's long cherished hope that ukraine might be further destabilized by ethnic conflict and its western tip on the border with hungary. right at the start of the trial in krakow took an interesting turn
7:15 pm
michel implicated a german as having incited him to perpetrate the attack. on whether he has views in common with money they've taken part in conferences together. but. it was many well. the right wing journalist who had been supporting the separatists in eastern ukraine. another right wing extremist has been called as a witness in krakow go back here he refused to give our camera team an interview. becky might have some vital information. he knows both the defendant and manual. he's known them from the start of hostilities in the ukraine when they spoke out at a conference in support of putin leaning separatists for weeks after the 1st attempted attack in old another took place at the hungary and cultural center and
7:16 pm
it was successful several ukrainians are accused of carrying it out but it's unclear who instigated it apparently it wasn't the same people who organized the 1st attempt. there is no one center in russia a decision about interference would would take place there are people around the kremlin x. think tanks institutions. interest groups. but want some reward from the crew from an. ember land within view of the brandenburg gate the soviet war memorial commemorates the red army troops who fell in the battles against nazi germany. in the aftermath of that war germany and europe were divided until the berlin wall came down. but the hopes for peaceful coexistence in a united europe have yet to be realized. nearly 30 years later russia
7:17 pm
seems bent on dividing europe again but this time with the help of right wing extremists. the edu run up to the. ox 21 this is all to some countries. just the european ideal news develops in full that was. created in the. next g.w. . as it once was it was a good guy just better. but then countless tragedies unfold.
7:18 pm
my uncle was a slope that everyone in this job no way for us to live there such a german. jews or iraqis want us to. remember down in 45 minutes on. what secrets lie behind these me. find out in an immersive experience and exploring. fascinating world cultural heritage sites. d w world heritage for 60 get. that we need a political and devalues place in europe. in our hearts and minds we all share a longing for europe. you
7:19 pm
really emerged from the idea that there should never be another major war and that we should see ourselves as one i think that is a very very lovely idea and one that makes sense. with the european parliamentary elections around the corner we wanted to know what are the main concerns of people here at the moment. what if it is and what are they hopes. us $21.00 travels across the continent meeting a range of creative people. tell me station in rome the focus is where programmers and tourists arrive to
7:20 pm
discover the eternal city 3000 years of european history all concentrated in a very small space buildings that date back to the roman empire the vatican and other architectural masterpieces. the frome is also a place where refugees and other migrants have gathered hoping for a better life and you're a man. though they're not always welcomed by the local population. and italy's interior minister has even threatened punitive measures for organizations that rescued refugees from the mediterranean and bring them to italy with initial. it's clever propaganda such bills are against the law and the constitution so it's legally impossible even if he says it's possible that in their law a.j. and i must add that if we take it out once again he's managed to ensure the topic
7:21 pm
hits the headlines 530 feet up about equipped with a member up agin this is a strategy to occupy all the space in the media. maniac eagle and we caught up with of one of the country's cognitive space even more by is a writer francesca melandri has no problem expressing uncomfortable truths her novel sunway to stow or writes blood looks at the causes of racism it links today's refugee crisis to the darkest chapters of italian history this journey into the italian soul also tackles european illusions. no now we have all been missed so for a long time i didn't realize how much italy's president or much more europe's present is intertwined with the colonial past possible money on and on i will make up the top. of all that there in could he meant that up with the day i didn't understand how incredibly direct the links are between what we are experiencing
7:22 pm
here in europe now and i say that very consciously on colonialism. the writer spent 10 years researching her novel she is featured in a documentary that accompanied her to it the opiah where she explored italy's colonial history in what was then known as a city or fascist dictator benito mussolini invaded of a city a in 1935 and incorporated it into his new. roman empire hundreds of thousands of lives were lost as a result of italian imperialism. band fascist italy developed its own racial theories but after the 2nd world war these and the atrocities committed in the colonies were passed. not a fact because this failure to face the past meant that this racism which is part of italy's history sank like
7:23 pm
a subterranean river among few myself that about. it though began to guard and since democracy's antibodies are no longer effective and what was once impossible to say is now i no longer a political to boot it's suddenly acceptable to say terrible things in public i mean that so racism has returned in this dominating public discourse and it is. the legacy of the toxic policies of colonialism remains in her novel francesco melandri indicts italy's africa policies of the past 85 years and those who are gaining political capital from the migrant crisis. between even those out of metal men to be. used as a scapegoat to avoid talking about the real social problems in italy alley the lesser shit that is so not needed in that flick the massive economic crisis the
7:24 pm
high unemployment and the terrible prospects for young people when it didn't meet. the european economic community was created in rome in 1957 this was the 1st step towards the european union a founding member italy is now europe's problems child with the populist parties in power campaigning against the e.u. with somewhere not a more this government has really poisoned the discourse around the social interaction butt. italy also has strong antibodies and italia the battle isn't over yet. no one can predict the outcome in court so it's not political if you're.
7:25 pm
in budapest reminders of the glory days of the austro hungary an empire about remnants of the communist era have largely been swept aside and those in power would prefer to forget 2004 as well that's the year hungary joined the european union. for viktor orban and his governing party fidesz the e.u. is the enemy on election posters that declared war on the block and its immigration policy is it's no coincidence there is no e.u. fact flying at the hungary and parliament often a source of controversy m.p.'s from far right party jobbik even threw one out the window. into the e.u. flag also plays a role in this new film a pro european activist tries to hang one up this scene was inspired by an event in real life. is there.
7:26 pm
in hunter's film the protagonist is suddenly confronted by the police. are. missed. then why did was they didn't shoot this scene in hungary and naturally we changed the characters yet. in reality a man perform this action fear if you do in the film a woman does a. shooting this scene in hungary it would have been impossible feel awkward but it was. we do have been denied permission right from the start for that there were. several trying to skirt around this problem by shooting his new film in romania using drama students and film students his low budget production is aimed at the international market. we do is no stranger to this scene he took part in the berlin international film festival back in 2010 with this ought film with an unusual aesthetic
7:27 pm
a woman fights for her daughter while revealing her past. why do doesn't want to be reliant on either government approval or funding he makes his films independently as a good reason for that in 2014 while attending the toronto international film festival he gave an interview that criticized the regime in hungary after that he received no more funding for his films he came to realize excepting money from the state cost you your independence. everything is cleansed. now there's hardly any area which you could say is truly independent. certainly not in the artistic sector anymore. in 2013 the national theatres openly gay artistic director or bad ferdi was sacked
7:28 pm
the government wanted hungary's cultural institutions to strengthen a national identity or merely entertain the media has also become increasingly. new one sided and those in the independent art scene find it hard to secure rehearsal or performance spaces. is currently writing a new play which will be performed in this apartment. and as a gallery and cultural forum. a place for artists to exchange ideas and for counter culture just fine back in communist times. showing good meat yet. it is with me here we perform our place in just a few square metres of space. sure. the audience sits around us is usually around 40 people mag normally the host of the salon provides some snacks and drinks after
7:29 pm
the performance. and discussions with the audience provide a real sense of community. because the. sample choice do has found his niche yet more and more hungry and see no future for themselves and the country half a 1000000 have left during all bands time in office. he will shouldn't view europe as the messiah who will save them there's also civil resistance and it's these initiatives that those in power fear most. the young momentum party wants an open democratic hungry that will work with the e.u. and it's gaining momentum by the day. clearly and germany germany is a founding member of the european union it's the member state with the largest population more than 80000000 people it's that's also the biggest net contributor to the use budget. and that's how shit is a photographer
7:30 pm
a chronicler of our time. she came to then says she is just before the wall came down to a city that reflect. german history like no other such as the ferry through the german capital along a bus route that shows how very this city is. imo this route crosses the whole of berlin going from a poor multicultural and trendy district to the kuta which everyone knows and on to the corner vault with its villas. capped and i have a feeling many people want to talk get things off their chest and someone with a camera can provide a good mirror come out of and that's what i speak. and they say how shields photos are timeless classic. they portray an affluent society whose affluence is not shared by all. the photographer takes
7:31 pm
a time before pressing the shutter she speaks to people listens to them and i have a beer. or 2 sisters after a bruising night it's 1030 at the water holes are regulars feel at home in this traditional pub hard to months coming years until the. tales of woe and hope. our shields pictures also reflect the political in the person. 10 years ago she made portraits of an aspiring generation . in europe at a time when more and more countries were joining the european union. hoping for a better future for a share of its promising potential. also of course there was a real spirit of european optimism there was very little criticism back then for
7:32 pm
the young lot of aat all of a sudden young people had a chance to move anywhere to train anywhere basically in the us been to gain. but this spirit of optimism has just. period the photographer's most recent work focuses on the edges of europe on the refugee situation in the mediterranean. so they are. trying not to focus so much on the refugees so much as on the helpers the organizations which in my opinion stand for these european values. those who have said we're needed now and we see ourselves as europeans with humanitarian aspirations as people. and to mention she thinks that europe should not only offer promise but also bear responsibility as should germany after all the country is stable has a strong economy and an intact democracy. from the visiting for one thing i think we should lead the way higher near us than we also because i think that's how we're
7:33 pm
seen from the outside america seems to have an incredible appeal this isn't the case in germany but it still is in europe us. 4 years ago chairman chancellor angela merkel decided to go it alone she opened the borders to over a 1000000 refugees without e.u. support. and she called for optimism we've done so much we'll do it but many in germany disagreed they fear that germany would be overrun but it would not be able to manage far right movements on the rise here as elsewhere too and polarizing society and too many hasn't completely recovered from the 40 years it was divided after the wall that the wall fell 30 years ago the scars of far from healed. appear to be valid beginning to understand for the 1st time what a long reach history really has how it shapes us and how little things have actually changed in the short time since 1909. things have changed outwardly but
7:34 pm
it's still clear that there were 2 very different systems i'd say that divided germany still very much lives on. is germany fragile after all. can it be a pioneering force in carrying everyone with that well keeping in the mind trained on its past. the heart of europe beats 400 kilometers east of paris in strasbourg on the border between france and germany. it's the heart of the old continent.
7:35 pm
and of the new one it's the official seat of the european parliament. but there are also other venues in the city that are talking politics. marco. don't learn. new e.q. . good. protests against the president's reforms have been raging on the streets of france's big cities for months now. the neglected province against the rich capital. the underprivileged against the elites. stanislaus not day an actor and the director of straw sports and national theatre decided to explore the social tensions on stage. of course. in france there are no children of factory workers or of agricultural workers among
7:36 pm
the elite there's a kind of sticking together and i think there's a form of blindness it's also indicative of a more general problem in our western democracies. in all of society really represented by elites. this is the rehearsal for the edouard louis play who killed my father the writer adapted his book of the same name especially it's a polemical work against francis social policies to say. big clue if you want you'll talk with your mom the. leaders in the dock workers as characters on stage. installed in the story about her father is about exactly those people who don't come to our fantasy telling their stories is a 1st step.
7:37 pm
the theatre wants to give all sectors of society of voice and a stage and this approach is also that of the theatres drama school all full scale use of. france is very much behind the theatre scene is desperately want this does not render society. so if it is. not de is working to change the ensemble so that it reflects french society better with all its ethnic groups and all its social differences if positive discrimination is needed to recruit young people from less educated families so be it he thinks that otherwise everything will stay the same. straw sports national theatre is the only one to enjoy special national theatre status outside of paris many small cities don't have any theatres at all centralisation is one of france's major problems and there was a huge gap between the center and the periphery but. also there are many regions in
7:38 pm
france which happy limited access to the internet and to a culture which you could say the same thing there's a lack of common sense a lack of good will. at the moment as a control to see because so much money has been to rebuild not. only there are magnificent monuments all over france which are crumbling and nobody cares so yes there is something in france which is very damaged. this imbalance is also reflected within europe itself. this is the subject of fall creates this play i am europe which studies last nor did a staged at the beginning of the year. and . let me tell you that. we are. so not only france is in crisis what is no day's vision of europe.
7:39 pm
it's a place where people come together because they have something to say to each other not just because they want to trade things cannot make arguments are not enough it's not enough to say that france alone wouldn't be able to negotiate free trade agreements that's a bad argument i think people need to have something to dream about. dublin is building the future on the banks of the river liffey. for many years the docklands area was poor now it's a lively business hub where many i.t. giants have their european headquarters multinationals were drawn by low corporate tax rates and flexible labor laws now they declare their worldwide revenues here
7:40 pm
and save billions but they've also brought money to the country and jobs as a result however housing and general living costs have exploded. members of the folk band to line come a very unhappy about the general economic situation but they scrape by somehow the group are hearses in a ratty pizza kitchen in a working class district of the city this is where they wrote most of their songs. c maybe artists musicians codes for an
7:41 pm
so much easier way of making a living book for us now the way most people i think that i know who are like living as artists or musicians they're just living on the dole basically also to go boy to dollars like the artists wage. they're going to scraping by and entered our day jobs yeah a lot of artists the musicians or whatever would have a page and then trying to work. whatever. the government has tended to take the attitude that market forces will self regulate but in dublin the results are clear there is the economic miracle on the one hand and grinding poverty on the other friends in dublin have risen by almost 70 percent since 2012 there are more and more homeless people. some 20000 people are waiting for social housing and well qualified young people are leaving ireland because they can't afford the rents.
7:42 pm
that. is the. fashion here. emigration has been a major problem for the island for well over a century and a half now in the 18th forties a 1000000 people died in the great famine and up to 2000000 people emigrated mass migration continued in the 20th century the country which was under british rule for centuries remained. after island joined the european union in the early 1970 s. the situation began to improve by the mid 1990 s. the country had earned the nickname of celtic tiger the victors write history the saying goes but in ireland they say it's the losers who sing their songs. so there's always being the kind of aspect to folk music where some corner of like
7:43 pm

7:50 pm
going to win that majority government or have to rely on the support of conservative independents. well following the australian election is the reporter jared regency in the studio with me so jared what is the latest you can tell us this really was supposed to be the on lose of bill election for bill shorten the leader of the left opposition labor party but now it's looking like it's turning into a nightmare for him the a.b.c. which is the strategy is national public broadcasting is predicting that the center right government will win the federal election but they cannot say whether it will have a majority or minority government this is a massive upset for weeks now polls have been predicting that the labor party would be able to form a majority government indeed the exit polls today showed that and this is a completely different result was everyone had been expecting of course the
7:51 pm
question now is can we trust opinion polls i've seen people like the result bill shorten being hillary clinton of all of this election he kind of always being unpopular but these people had expected he said he would be able to form a government so an unexpected result of the final result of course will not be known at least for another several hours jared this was called the climate change election was this the central issue on voters' minds it certainly was one of the central issues repeated. voters put climate change up the top of their concerns they seeing the effects of climate change around them you know astray you had its hottest year on record last year various weather patterns that are unusual there was. a desire in the community for a real climate policy which other governments have failed to do the labor party put
7:52 pm
forward a very ambitious goals to you to address climate change and climate policy but it appears. they really failed to connect with voters on these in comparison and the government has done very little to address climate change they're still very big backers of traditional energy sources like coal and liquefied natural gas it looks like this is what the voices have chosen well maybe it's safe to say that there's been quite a bit of drama in australian politics we've seen quite a number of prime ministers come and go are voters fed up though with all this yes they are in this survey showed that they were having a prime minister one day and another prime minister the next because there have been something like 7 in 12 years now although scott morrison who is the incumbent prime minister he's been in the job 9 months it's looking like a you will not be getting a new prime minister that they'll be keeping the one they do have perhaps certainly
7:53 pm
in the top job. some stability i guess all right jared reed monitoring the results of this trail as election thank you so much well to austria now where vice chancellor and far right leader hines. has just announced his resignation from the country's coalition government was forced to step down after germany's spiegel magazine and newspaper published a secretly recorded video from 2017 well the video appears to sow offering government contracts in return for campaign donations earlier he made this statement just keep. this still a look to do and yes we still want to implement the government's program. we stand by that programme because we are responsible for australia and its people. and i cannot be the reason this does not happen. i do not want to provide the grounds for
7:54 pm
the destruction of this government which option roll was the goal of that illegal grubby smear. yourself people. at 11 am i met the chancellor sebastian courts then i offered him my resignation as vice chancellor of austria. and he accepted that. well news of the existence of that video broke on friday after it was sent to those german media outlets and its contents could not have been more devastating for austria's far right figurehead. it was a revelation that would cost the austrian vice chancellor his job and it seemed time to hurt his freedom party as a campaign for the european parliament experts say the secretly taped footage is authentic it shows. a fellow party members spending several hours in
7:55 pm
a house on the spanish island of it be months before austria's 2017 election they're talking to a woman purported to be a russian millionaire who appears to be offering to buy austria's biggest newspaper and to guarantee positive coverage of their party. as soon as she takes over the krona newspaper we need to be very frank we'll have to sit down together and talk openly the newspaper will have to go boom boom boom or 3 or 4 people need to be pushed 3 or 4 others will have to be kicked to the curb and then will bring in 5 new people that will coach. the recording also contains discussions of how to conceal the donation to the party she has heard offering lucrative government contracts in return as well as punishing industrialist hands peta has. the head of the stop by a conglomerate. if we become part of the government i promise you one thing china won't get any more contracts the identity of the woman posing as the russian is
7:56 pm
unclear admits to requesting the meeting in this discussion in relation to all topics i have always referred to the relevant legal provisions and the need to comply with the austrian legal system. and with straka now resigning his post this scandal has shaken austria's political system to its core. well joining me now in the studio is void of vitamin schmidt he's an investigative journalist at the magazine dish which published extracts of this covert video some mr smith thank you so much for joining us now we've just seen the vice chancellor of austria resign in the wake of this damaging video being published is this the outcome that your publication expected by publishing it. didn't expect it but we thought it might be a possibility because the video it's really damning it's. the things he talks about the way talks about things so we didn't expect it but we thought it might be
7:57 pm
a possibility well the video seems very carefully planned and filmed in good quality and executed but we do know that nowadays there's a lot of technology that can doctor videos that can be faked are you certain that the video is authentic that we are absolutely certain the thing is we got ahold of the video and we of course knew it's. all those questions you know we thought we have to make sure that it's not a fake that it's not been doctored so we asked 2 experts with their institutes to check out if there's any. way you can tell that it's been manipulated and there's had no it's not manipulated. and we asked for an sec experts to look if it's the same people if it's the place a location if it's a location we think it is and they checked and and so on and so on so we were. sure that it's not been manipulated and that's the real shows a real real politicians but then again they didn't deny anything in so. perhaps
7:58 pm
solution or that's that it's real and it's shows what they were saying there and it was well both your magazine dish people and those you don't ship tied to a newspaper have been reluctant to name your source but what can you tell us about where you got your hands on this video or at least how you obtained the video that's right we can't talk about sources we never do that and understandably. the thing the thing i can tell is that we heard about the existence of the video a while back but we actually took this month and we got a hold on it and the hands and then we would check that and we'll make sure that it's not been manipulated and. we were. we thought it's in the public interest to to publish parts of it and because people need to see the information or the way because that's a talks about politics and about media and so on and so on and so in the public
7:59 pm
interest to see i would say his real face so you mentioned that you've actually had this video already for about a month is that going on we got it this month you received it this month ok so you've had it for a while let's say and yet the timing of its publication is also quite significant we're seeing european elections just a week from now there's this far right rally taking place today in milan was this intentional to release it now we didn't have the intention to release it just right now but we got like i said we got it this month so that was i don't know a couple weeks weeks ago and we just needed to take the time to really check that it's time to get israel and it's almost 7 hours long and shot from different angles in different rooms. and we had to have to transcribe and translate parts of it parts of his russian so it wasn't that easy to say ok let's just publish it the
8:00 pm
next day we had to ask those experts from those institutes of hono for instance which was of involved for example and we asked them to to to to look at their real thorley so that took some time and now we have to we have to publish it and you know people have asked us if we would have sat on it till after the election and why didn't you publish before the election so it's it's a tough call all right boy if the to mention it to an investigative journalist at the magazine spiegel thank you so much for your time welcome thank you. well the austrian vice chancellor was forced to pull out of a rally in milan today that's where an alliance of far right parties from across europe is meeting ahead of next week's european elections they're hoping to forge a new grouping in the e.u. parliament following that vote the event in milan is being hosted by italy's deputy premier and interior minister matteo salvini who is also a leader of the far right elite party among the most high profile speakers expected
8:01 pm
are moving in the pan of france's national rally and the leader of germany's far right a deep party your miten. our correspondent covering that event for us and joins us now from milan so this event is of course being hosted by italy's foreign deputy prime minister matteo salvini what is he hoping to achieve today. and what she wanted to do was have a triumph here in the piazza. in milan to because he wanted to show that he can after years of squabbling unite all of the extreme right wing parties in europe and what the ultimate goal of that is is to form a big and strong coalition in the european parliament in order to change e.u. politics in order to drag the problem into the rights and influence lawmaking of cory's and one particularly
8:02 pm
a more salvini is to change the rules for the euro he wants to make them much looser because he wants more money to spend more money in italy and increase the italian dad something that the northern countries germany for instance have so far always said no to so that is what he wants and of course the fair throws a shadow over what was supposed to be a wonderful triumphal afternoon here in milano barbara do you think it's likely that they'll somehow mention this scandal in austria at today's far right rally. we don't know yet but there have been already reactions marine le pen was asked what she said to it and 1st she said no she wouldn't comment this was austrian domestic politics but then she said no i mean we have to look at the timing off this publication and wasn't it suspicious that it came just a week before the european elections so of course there are quite
8:03 pm
a spear received theories now beginning to emerge and so obviously himself has already reacted in a sort of a billycock way of painting himself as a victim. of all sorts of attacks from the outside against his plans so there are the 1st ripples appearing on the surface off this far right to gathering here in italy our idea w.'s reporting for us from milan we thank you for that. here watching to tell you news up next a look back at baghdad's once thriving jewish community in america evanston from all of us in berlin thanks for watching. shifting powers the old order is history the world is religion izing itself and the media's role is keep the topic in focus of the global media forum 29 change today

donations also coming up. early results from australia's election point to a shop winner and back to the country's ruling conservatives it looks set to retain power despite trailing in the polls. i'm michael okwu thanks for joining us austria's coalition government is at risk of collapsing after the country's vice chancellor and far right leader hines christian straka was forced to resign struck a step down after germany's spiegel magazine and newspaper published a secretly recorded video of him from 2017 he appears to show struck up offering government contracts in return for campaign donations. he was one of the biggest names in austrian politics. 2 years ago he did something that had long been
8:50 pm
unimaginable he brought his far right freedom party into government and the party now had high hopes for the european elections. but then this video experts say the hidden camera recording is authentic recorded before the election that brought him to power it purports to show and a fellow party member on the spanish island of it before talking to a woman posing as a russian millionaire she appears to be offering to buy stakes in austria's biggest newspaper and to guarantee positive reporting on the freedom party. as soon as she takes over the krona newspaper we need to be very frank we'll have to sit down together and talk openly the newspaper will have to go boom boom boom 3 or 4 people need to be pushed 3 or 4 others will have to be kicked to the curb and then will bring in 5 new people that will coach. the recording also contains
8:51 pm
discussions of how to disguise a donation to the party. is heard offering lucrative government contracts in return while aiming to punish his arch enemy construction magnate hans peta has. if we become part of the government i promise you one thing i know will get any more contracts the identity of the woman in the video is unclear. to requesting the meeting but denies wrongdoing. 7 hours it was an evening meal that went on until midnight and over the course of this conversation we insisted on full compliance with all requirements of the little made this very clear several times and i did nothing illegal. with tatas resignation the scandal has shaken austria's political system to its core. earlier we spoke to wolf in schmidt from dish beagle one of the outlets which broke this story
8:52 pm
we asked him whether his magazine had been expecting straka to resign. possible cause some of the things we talked about are really wary. well for viewers obviously they were really damning and he almost showed his real face and it was a different face they knew. from from the campaigns so we thought it might be possible but we didn't expect that what more can you tell us and i realize you might be hampered to some extent but what more can you tell us about the source of the video. we can't talk about the source of the video we don't comment on that because we have to protect our sources but the thing i can tell you is that we heard of the existence of this video. while back but it took till till this month that we've finally got our hands on the video and. possibility to check it to look at it it's almost 67 hours long so it took them some time to authority
8:53 pm
check it and make sure that it's not faked well you bring up the fact that it's not that it did it's not fake how can you be certain about its authenticity exactly. we you know it's a lot of material and we by looking at it we were pretty sure that it's almost impossible to fake all of this but of course we wanted to make sure that nobody the . temper of the the audio of the video so we asked espec sports from from institutes in germany forensic experts to take a look at it to make sure that the video and the audio hasn't been manipulated. for one thing and also it shows the real the people we while it shows those 2 positions and also it's located at the place we thought it supposed to be located because we knew the place where they supposedly met and all of that checked out and there was
8:54 pm
no no. well no hints or no. know what the pollution that was that could be seen so what you mention the fact that you received the video this month and some people might question you know on the eve of the european elections the timing why specifically now. well the thing is we couldn't publish right away of course because we have to check it and make sure it's not a minute for lent and so and we did that and we were sure it's authentic and we probably would have been criticized if we would have sat on it for another couple of weeks till after the election as well so the way it was a tough call but we thought we could couldn't sit on it and a lot of the full with there should be go thanks much for joining us thank you very much. struck i was also forced to pull out of a rally in milan today that's where an alliance of far right parties from across

8:57 pm
she she hasn't taken at this rally no one has yet the event hasn't actually started but earlier she spoke from milan she said that it's looking that that this alliance could fall and could see a historic this could be a historic moment for them at the elections that they could to see go from 8th place to sick a 3rd or even 2nd which is quite a big jump forward they are looking to gain a lot more votes next week and as she said. that this could be a historic event she will she wants she's calling them a super union and she was really speaking before this event. talked earlier about changing europe with a pen european movement of all the far right political parties what exactly did he mean by that it how likely is that to happen. well that's exactly what he's trying to achieve with this alliance michael and what he hopes is is to shake up europe from within i mean earlier previously he was very speaking very anti europe very

8:59 pm
and its institutions. the german parliament has voted to condemn the international boycott divestment sanctions movement against israel as anti-semitic lawmaker said its tactics were reminiscent of the nazis campaign against jews the b.d.'s game prominence in the run up to tonight's eurovision song contest final being held this year in televisions. to australia now where early results in the country's election are pointing to a shock result scott more since conservative coalition appears to be headed for reelection despite having trailed in the polls morse and won power less than a year ago becoming the 3rd conservative prime minister since 2013 he ran a campaign centered on his personality and on the risks posed to the middle class by the opposition labor party's tax policy it's still unclear if more soon will win majority government or have to rely on support of conservative independents.
9:00 pm
d.w. reporter jerry greed has been following the australian election closely and joins me now in the studio for more. this is clearly a huge upset certainly looks like one this was meant to be an lose a bull election for bill shorten but it's really turned into a nightmare for him and the center left. for weeks now polls had been predicting that he would be able to form a new government and indeed the exit polls today after the election had been predicting this as well but it does come out the complete reverse as you say it's predicted now that the coalition government the incumbent government will win the federal election whether or not they can form a majority remains to be seen some of the interesting things we're seeing a split between the conservative and more liberal states people a likening miss to an american election result and also the comparisons being made
9:01 pm
to the upset when donald trump in 2016 people are asking is is bill clinton is bill shorten i should say the new hillary clinton but yeah this is a pretty sweet victory for prime minister what exactly went wrong for the labor party this is something that i guess they'll be pouring over in the next days and weeks but i think it comes down to policy they presented a very ambitious climate action and tax policy and in comparison the government didn't present that much in the way of policy and perhaps for the labor party it was too much to. overwhelm devotion is consistently ranked climate change as the number one issue concerning them and when you put them side by side it was the labor party who had a more ambitious way of tackling that box it seems like they couldn't really
9:02 pm
connect. with the i think personality as you mentioned played a pot to bill shorten was involved in the downfall of prime minister and i think there was a suspicion in the community about where is scott morrison probably they found more watchable. well no one in the public at least very few people were expecting this outcome what does this actually mean now for the voters i think it really we have to see how how the cards fall in the palm and if scott morrison is able to form a majority then then it's a him but if he caught then he'll have to rely on the support of conservative leaning independents and that will affect his policy agenda. a succession of prime ministers something like 7 in the last 12 years. be a new one today it doesn't look like that will be the case looks like some more continuity in the prime minister's office thanks so much for that update.

9:11 pm
people were brutally annihilated on a huge scale german world war 2. school groups come here from across europe to learn about nazi atrocities. this is sort of this is really depressing. and makes me feel very sad little as it's a horrible feeling to be here. until now there has been a consensus in german politics to ensure that the crimes of the nazi era are not forgotten especially among younger generations but the far right a.f.d. reject this they claim nazi history takes up too much school time and say the culture of remembrance is bad for germany. the effect ladies and gentlemen is quite clear young people are systematically brought up to feel guilt and shame about being german and they learn to associate germany with evil as is the us it's you know these sentiments are not just expressed in parliament 3 debates the director of the sachsenhausen memorial says sites like this are directly targeted by the far
9:12 pm
right. there was a group here that was either in the f.t. or aligned with it but we don't know if they were party members who were denying nazi crimes. by the public prosecutor's office is continuing but these people even deny the existence of the gas chambers. provocations like these are only part of the a if these tactics for example in the state of bottom. the party has tried to reduce public funding for memorials there is no majority support for such measures but some fear that public opinion may change. the f.t. says germany's nazi past should be seen in a wider context. we also want to focus on the positive aspects of german history because we think every nation needs positive points to identify with
9:13 pm
its. stressing the favorable aspects of german history is pulling the wool over people's eyes but i think it's wrong and downright dangerous we have done important work over decades taking a critical look at our own history. of political conflicts that could affect the future of germany's public memorials. a last journey goes to you tonight in the lake victoria about 250 fishermen and 10 times as many snakes they shouldn't be disturbed why emanuel knows that very well. victoria. over 150000 bugs which give a particular sound. down below them on the ground are much quieter beasts. over 1000 island in the. unique

9:57 pm
policies joining them whether or not 8 a will lead to a pending of the us i hope to achieve really remains to be seen marine le pen from france's. 5 national rally policy she spoke before the event she's due to speak shortly again at the event she spoke before the event and she said that they're heading towards the historic we didn't. come next week at the election and that they could be or even the 2nd biggest grouping and polling shows that that could be possible. 8 but even then they won't have a majority in the parliament a mill struggle to. * cope harness and be able to support them so whether or not they can make the changes that they whip it remains to be saying that the writers thank you so much for joining us. let's turn now to some of the other stories
9:58 pm
making headlines around the world thousands are marching in warsaw as it celebrates poland's membership of the european union ahead of key european parliament elections next week european council president donald to a schism mungo's taking part opposition leaders hope to get out the pro. poland's conservative government is highly critical of the e.u. and its institutions. iran's foreign minister has called for china and russia to take concrete actions to save its country's nuclear agreement visiting beijing mohammad job called on friendly countries to step up their trade with iran in the face of renewed u.s. sanctions in the country. to australia now scott more since conservative coalition has won reelection despite having trailed in the polls before the country's general election more so in originally one power less than a year ago becoming the 3rd conservative prime minister since 2013 ran
9:59 pm
a campaign centered on his personality and on the risks posed to the middle class by the opposition labor party's tax policy it's still unclear if morson will win middle majority government thinks it will have to rely on support of conservative independents. a short time ago morrison's challenger opposition labor leader bill shorten conceded defeat i want to say. i know that you're all hurting and i am and so. in the national interest a short while ago. scott morrison to congratulate him. reported your reader has been following the australian election very closely and joins me now in the studio for more is clearly a major upset that's right such
10:00 pm
a long time now it had been predicted by opinion polls in fact the exit polls today after the election that bill shorten would be the new prime minister but it just wasn't to be this is such an upset queen for the incumbent scott morrison he's really pulled he's back from the brink this was just completely unexpected and we're seeing some interesting parallels people are comparing this to the opposite of donald trump in 2016 in calling bill shorten the. election hillary clinton so this is just it's hard to overstate how much of an upset so what exactly went wrong for the labor party look they put forward a very ambitious policy agenda on climate action and increased taxes on the wealthy and comparatively the government policy agenda was was not as
10:01 pm
extensive as labor's and perhaps. overwhelming verges read what it was trying to achieve voters consistently put climate change as the number one issue affecting them and when you put the tea party side by side in fact labor had more to offer in that respect they were much more ambitious they wanted to get trend towards renewables and things like electric cars for example where is the the government was quite happy to just on its commitments to the paris accord but not go further than that because it was worried about the economic impacts so yeah it clearly agenda didn't connect to viruses also to i think personality played. to bill shorten is someone that. is don't necessarily like he is he was involved in the downfall of 2 prime ministers and i think people with suspicious of him and perhaps scott morrison a bit more in 10 seconds can you tell us what this means for voters it depends on
10:02 pm
