4:07 pm
you're. welcome from berlin and welcome to arts and culture the hills are alive with the sound of yodeling which i'm not very good at but we'll look into how this form of communication has evolved and flourished also coming up. in our series 100 german must reads we revisit the berlin wall through the eyes of a west german author and see how german division affected both sides and west records. and speaking of walls the berlin based artist collective inner fields uses them as their canvas for some of the most sought after street art around. well anyone who's a fan of the sound of music will remember julie andrews yodeling her heart out in the song the lonely goat herd and indeed long before the advent of smartphones cow
4:08 pm
and go herds used yodeling in the alps as a way to call from one mountain to another but what began as a melodic language in switzerland and austria has evolved into a sophisticated musical form in itself and it's one that has remarkable staying power bully pulpit to pop up your pop up to. be totally meaningless and loudly. but maybe we don't know when the 1st alpine 30 pharma let rip with the 1st yodel. perhaps the most plausible explanation courting the scattered herd of cows in for milk but with so much artistic creativity to be. vested interest such a monday in task.
4:09 pm
for you can go far you are. my thesis is that the 2nd variation is much more penetrating that's the reason the german police or the fire department have this lalu are that goes just like that. it goes up and down and that's basically a yodel. or perhaps the odor was originally a distress call the invention of someone high in the mountains feeling threatened by the uncanny science someone who felt they must release this feeling of lost ness in a primal yell and this became an entertaining form of music. rather hard to imagine now but there was a time when yodeling was considered revolutionary. you could
4:10 pm
even say there was a kind of republican the yodel for example in switzerland one of the 1st democratic countries or to roll off the wars to free it from the code in at the beginning of the 19th century. these countries were associated with freedom in the eyes of the rest of europe when. the euro songs that came down from the out to europe were transformed into songs of freedom. an interesting theory where the battles are just great p.r. measures for alpine folk music well christoph doctors research does suggest that there was a yodel at that time one which gripped the heart of europe and soon produced its 1st superstars growing up family from silla tar. paper adored and got rich in that energy. it's the same a mate this opined song into a kind of 1st pop music so instead we see commom in addition to the
4:11 pm
rhinos hundreds of alpine singers and even opera divas took yodeling to the live and to overseas pastures near 0 balance he also has the new york metropolitan opera their views were not great but that didn't stop the other mania gripping the us to consider the whole world met in the usa in the 19th century and a mix of languages were spoken my idea is that yodelling was the lowest common denominator of the clouds to combine some in the. music market was zoom saturated with the new sound and some began to find it just plain irritating mark twain generously rewarded the 1st yodeling shepherd he encountered to ascend into space mountain but after encountering ever moan at 10 minute intervals he soon resorted to bribing them to just shut up. for a. train did not live to experience the blue yodel jimmy rogers went from graduate
4:12 pm
brakeman to wreck and start his style was allegedly inspired by howling coyotes and steam locomotives. in the usa yodel mania lost its luster in the 1950 s. . but 2 decades ago yodeling was liberated from being solely the preserve of german folk music t.v. shows indeed folk music bands and evidence god vocalists have breathed new life into. and why not what could be more beautiful than transforming those cries of distress into a positive heartfelt yell that echoes around the world. well august 13th marks the 50th anniversary of the day the berlin wall went up practically overnight here in the city itself it proceeded to divide into communist
4:13 pm
east and capitalist west and for 28 years it was the most tangible symbol of the cold war and during that time author and journalist. was one of the 1st west germans to write a novel about it 30 years ago i could have been shot to death just for standing here the space on the east side of the berlin wall was called the street. and. people risk their lives trying to escape from the communist east to the west but who would have been crazy enough to try to jump over the wall from the west to the east. the wall is about germans from both sides trying to overcome the border. mr who was in his mid forty's and on welfare 1st came to the attention of the police when with a running start from the west he jumped the wall heading east the guards of the other german states arrested as a border violator he wore out his interrogators who wanted to know why he hadn't
4:14 pm
used a border crossing by pointing out time and again that he lived right across the way and had taken the only direct path over the wall when the book came out in 1902 the wall was already part of people's d.n.a. hardly anyone here believed that east and west germany would agree unified and most people didn't even want them to be in the wall. weaves together political analysis and report taj with his own youthful adventures and his complicated friendships with germans from both sides the book proved to be prophetic it will take us longer to tear down the wall in our heads than any wrecking company will need for the wall we can see. the wall jumper is still one of the most important works written about german division and it's probably the coolest history lesson you'll ever read. nice little slim addition to your summer reading list while walls play a central role in our next report because we're going to meet the guys from inner

fields who specialize in massive street art murals now for a decade their art has reflected how ai and technology are taking over our lives and the more surface they manage to cover the more they hope that they can change the world along. do and hold in a field collective for 10 years now they've been painting giant sized colorful and very precise words using building walls as they campuses and giant sized tools. it's all. these are our surprise brushes our favorites if you were to do the same thing on canvas this would have to be a mini brush. and. this theme is the effects of the digital revolution on people's lives as flogs sees transforming huge facades into murals like this one in fribourg as both a challenge and a responsibility. as with the movie having an opportunity to paint something like
4:16 pm
this also imposes a great responsibility on us to express something to the community. when you're located something in a public space where lots of people see it you have a responsibility to produce something lasting that advances society otherwise in the end it's irrelevant a few weeks early on. live and work in berlin they 1st met in the mid ninety's when there were graffiti sprite is not everything they created was entirely legal. i believe that. actually not all that much is changed about our passion from the 1990 s. i think the one small transformation that's happened is that while it was a hobby and a passion back then. today it's serious and a passion and now we're allowed to do it we don't get laughed at anymore. over the years that stayed true to their things the only present smartphones one of their
4:17 pm
favorite subjects they critical view of the breakneck pace of technological progress often finds expression in a mural in berlin. hamburg and abroad. such as georgia. israel. norway or ukraine. to caution for us it's fantastic that we're getting so many requests from all over the world to come and paint these works. i know we have to think about how we're going to coordinate the year and choose what we're able to take on it realize and finish. that. in addition to the painting the 2 artists do projects on their own as well here it's all about the relationship between humans and technology the finished canvases look
4:18 pm
a bit like miniature versions of the murals but you do want to accept any artistic limitations. these works could indeed become a mural. there canvas as we've created individually to deal with the subjects of social media and technology. i think it's great because in a way we're putting together a cache of ideas. their latest mural is an initiative at the university of fribourg with philip kelly my is conducting research on intelligence he supplied the basic idea for the work. it's been our experience in the projects we've done so far that art has a virtually ideal means or public forum for or approach to instigating dialogues on such complex topics as artificial intelligence technology and things like that. agreed to superimposed on the study helps to transpose the such proportions to the
4:19 pm
wall 4 days of work 6 liters of paint and 10 cans of spray paint went into the fry book mural it purposely leaves much room for interpretation. we want to mention. we hope to reach people but we don't want to play the part of the educator here we just want to put down a few stumbling blocks to trip people up we want to trip up people's minds and. this is what in the fields hope to achieve within your role on artificial intelligence. its size alone makes it almost impossible to avoid engaging with that . time without it is time for us to sign off but don't forget about our web site e w dot com slash culture any time i hope to see you next time same time same place for more arts and culture news and until then i was going to one chased.

youth unemployment is high. there's a lack of privacy employers and training especially for women. some $33000000.00 people live in the kingdom of saudi arabia $20000000.00 a saudi citizens national revenue is around $180000000000.00 u.s. dollars 87 percent of that comes from oil. this international team is researching the future of sol renner gee they're developing solar energy collectors in every imaginable a full room tiny power plants. day oberon heads the team she's turkish holds a ph d.

from germany and is a researcher here in saudi arabia. the team's truly sensational invention doesn't look like much at 1st glance. i have shown you are actually a brake to a technology that can make any window into our solar panel so what we're seeing here is we're able to generate electricity from windows with some special coatings on top off but it's still visible to your eyes like any other window. so our technology actually offers a great platform where you can make any building a power generation yourself. the solar window is one of many painted technologies from cows to the king abdullah university of science and technology it was founded by a former saudi king as a private university independent from the ministry of education the campus has its own rules and women aren't required to wear the abaya it's perhaps

4:44 pm
in the street it's my passion. i left chemistry is that that's because 1st time when i was 16 years old when i 1st studies studied chemistry all that that i just liked it so much and i fell in love with it so in that time i decided to discover more and more about chemistry and go deep in that. we're trying to create materials that absorb the light from the sun. or indoors bobs of boy primarily from the sun and then we can use that to start a chemical reaction and then the chemical reaction we create hydrogen in this case from water just called water splitting so creating hydrogen allows you to create a stored energy source so this could be a potential product replacement for
4:45 pm
a bottle of oil could be a big seller of hydrogen. or yield to hydrogen would be a radical switch perhaps the next generation will make it a reality. the hope of course is that they will be able to play a prominent role in some of the larger more influential so the companies of the future so i think that we are educating to some extent the elite of this so the. student population coast is a model that hopefully in the future is going to be replicated through superior. koski also has daycare facilities which helps contribute to the research environment in a country that is seeking to lessen its dependence on oil. a mother who works full time is still an exception in saudi arabia.

but there's a big obstacle to overcome in replacing oil with solid power and that's dust. in the desert state of saudi arabia there are more than 3000 sunlight hours a year and almost no rain dust coats the equipment and reduces efficiency. so that states we can lose 2030 percent of the output so we need to be removing it and ideally more moving every day because then you don't get that layering effect of the dust right now it's super layered on i mean this is this is quite a stiff bristle brush. it starts to come off. a stray an inventor george eitel who has set up his company nomad based on the idea of brushing the dust off instead of rinsing it saudi engineer ahmed out a sari is

i did not imagine myself staying in saudi long term and. idea changed more recently coming to coast seeing how things are changing in a direction that i appreciate that i like. usable one. because only the. in the past we have seen problems to be as something to be avoided or ignored rather than opportunities to be embraced and this is a cultural mindset not just in the middle east but worldwide if we're honest but what we're seeing now is is a reevaluation of the problems that exist like that and a new way to address them. are

saudi arabia is going out of its way to bring in investment. to king abdul industrial valley promises foreign investors low grants low energy costs and hardly any tax still the response has been muted does far. there are plans to build an ultra modern city next to the industrial era. up to 2000000 residents. there's even a golf course already. in. a huge industrial port is under construction and another city several times bigger than this one is being planned for the north of the country to entice investors. slowly but surely the country is starting to realize that oil alone won't keep it going forever.
4:52 pm
saudi arabia's regional rival is its neighbor qatar a much smaller country with a similarly powerful economy due to its huge natural gas reserves. and several middle eastern countries cut diplomatic ties with qatar in september 2017 following allegations of financing terrorism. qatar is reacted with patriotism and assurance that they would manage just fine without their powerful neighbors my good workers keep the qatari economy going. the amir's vision for the future is to have more private enterprise that doesn't depend on gas and to foster one highly educated population.
4:53 pm
2.6000000 people live in the emirate of qatar. 240008 citizens. national revenue is around $44000000000.00 u.s. dollars 76 percent of that comes from natural gas. was blessed with natural resources as well as a very centric position. in the middle east and in the middle of the world if you wish so not only in the foreign policy but when it comes to the for example the scene of education it has created the education city which is serving as an educational heart for the entire region. has brought international universities and think tanks into the country including the brookings institution from the us. qatar has identified like the knowledge economy and education sector as r.k.
4:54 pm
components of it so persecution of cottage only there has been a very good space to have intelligent independent dialogue and researchers and these organisations are allowed the space to be able to do the work to be to do. the brookings institution has voiced some criticism of the country's economic policy. a large share of the national population is involved in government work they have government positions they're employed in government they have these the high salaries short working hours job security these are all very good things now when a country starts talk with the need to diversify it's usually free to their 1st vacation the private sector so i think in general you. need to encourage entrepreneurs dodgeball spirit and entrepreneurship involves risk taking. the main driving force in the private sector is construction new buildings going up everywhere.
4:55 pm
construction is also taking place underground the capital doha now has a metro system that will have full nuns once complete. the 10s of thousands of people who work on these mega projects mainly come from abroad working conditions have improved following international criticism most of the markets arrive with no training and learn on the job. these kinds of contracts and not attractive to skilled workers. tyreese are more likely to do administrative jobs and they still prefer to work for state owned companies. rethinking old ways will take time in cata says a spokesman for the metro association. and. it's a very new kind of transport system for qatar. so it'll take
4:56 pm
a while for people to realize that it's safe and environmentally friendly. to afford it and we worked with her for a metro will save time money and of course energy. saving energy and reducing the country's dependence on natural gas is at the forefront of the new sustainable city center of doha this is the district of michigan rep named after the springs and wells that sustained the ancient desert cities. and that's good for the. you can close the roof so the whole square is in the shade during the day. we've created a new architectural language that one of the structure of the stones on the facades prevents the sun from shining directly into the buildings but the fall of the shutters of. the architects were inspired by the past when no houses in cata had
4:57 pm
energy guzzling air conditioning them a share at district uses wind to cool the area naturally you can see how it works in the old buildings that still exist here. that's never been this building has been built in such a way that the wind from the north blows in and cools the entire building. the ground has many advantages to oil it doesn't absorb heat so the building stays cool and also the dust sticks to it. so when the wind blows through the building it doesn't stir any of it up it was that got one shot all residential and office buildings in this district would use up to 30 percent less energy at least that's what the government is aspiring to. in just a few decades the capital doha has transformed from a fishing village into
4:58 pm
a lively metropolis. and. the tiny emirate of qatar is now well known all over the western world. but it's almost defiant in its pride to be an independent nation. qatar has taken on an important role in world politics and wants to retain it. the foreign ministry is also involved in crashes vision 2030 that will hopefully create a future independent of natural gas. people sometimes think that the 2030 vision of because of you know the fact that other countries are launching there is only recently that the father has joined the club as a matter of fact others had that vision in 2008 launched and that at that time we didn't
4:59 pm
have the world cup. we didn't win it but then as soon as that happened that was integrated into the overall vision. sporting events could also provide an alternative source of income. for the khalifa stadium can be . when host international events in the summer because of its gigantic air conditioning system it's the only one in the world in an open stadium. katter's world cup commission is responsible not only for planning the event but also for what comes after how can the economy build on the expertise that's been brought into the country. all of the east sporting or international events that has i mean a lot of shit and to see an international expertise to come and delivering the
5:00 pm
event. i mean there will be going to the next event to ensure that the knowledge that is here within about that and within the region we have this just it was due to censor to ensure i mean to deliver it occasion and training to the sporting industry. sustainability is also part of the sporting industry at least that's the message the world cup commission wants to convey for example with the 1st fifa stadium to be recycled after the world cup. the whole of stadium as there will be. this month after that on the month of the world be broken down into different users saw it so i can be a bit of a figurative and be rebuilt elsewhere with a similar sort of addition of everybody down at the smaller vessel of the of. the building is made from shipping containers and steel girders after the world cup
5:01 pm
cutter could theoretically sell the stadium to the u.s. from mexico so it can be rebuilt there for 2026 as long as the politicians play ball. oh man it doesn't just look different than its neighbors and their towering skylines. the sultanate is having an easier time for. and in alternatives to oil and natural gas for one because its reserves are smaller than those of its neighbors and a man's economy was flourishing even before the discovery of oil. life here is still shaped by fishing crafts and trade and women also have a big role in society. a man has diplomatic relations with all the gulf states including qatar. its ancient citadels and fortified buildings and now just part of the country's history the country practices
5:02 pm
a more moderate form of conservative islam. some $4600000.00 people who live in the sultanate of amman $2500000.00 a citizen its national revenue is around $22000000000.00 u.s. dollars 73 percent of that comes from oil and gas. much as the historic district of a man's capture muscat and one of the city's major tourist attractions more than $3000000.00 visitors come to a man every year mainly from germany and france. to resume is the biggest industry up to oil and gas and it grows every year by 6 percent. the government's next aim is to build a port for large cruise ships right in the front of the old town. but work mass to
5:03 pm
resume blue in the historic area. geography manuel a good bill it is hoping to answer this question with her research. she's lived in musket for 14 years oman has a lot to offer and a lot to lose that much is clear from a visit to the bait around a museum. here. i think most days ahead all. this is right that. the black robes arrived in the country with the rise of oil and the influence of saudi arabia so that also brought a more conservative way of life. the man well hopes to find a form of gentle tourism that's compatible with local tradition. no where close the effort of country you got
5:04 pm
a village in the interior you need to really observe the way you dress the way you talk to people and it's not that you know you need to really look around you the environment you're in and conform to it to the country's self that's where the toys will enjoy and we as the villagers would welcome them to come to the country open arms talk to them. in since has been bought and sold in the match a bazaar for centuries. but what will happen to the little shops with the growing cords of tourists manuela asked some of the shop owners. to resume has changed what sold here there are a few every day goods and more souvenirs. many omanis are now giving up their shops and leasing them to migrants. but. once well not all the parts around 200000 cruise ship tourists came here last year
5:05 pm
it doesn't sound like much but when you consider that the population of matter is only around 200000 and that really is a lot it gets overcrowded very easily as nato is often or. many a moving away from the truck because they feel like strangers even on the streets they grew up on the chicken the one. at home reassured me everything used to be colorful around here was about what would happen if the father lots of things still are but lots aren't as much as your house was set up and these are caves with no substance we are models used to shape this place or. other than the gun. but some of the old shops are holding out their products might seem out of place but this is exactly what their money customers are looking for what it is some people come from villages far away the owner explains. his father moved here 929 from india. you started this from the little bit. and all the
5:06 pm
money he was using it and it was like. what is on them and their money. and i today. when asked about the future of his shop he had just one answer everything should stay exactly as it is. travelling through a man can be like a journey through time in. japan after is a mountain range in the north of the country. it. was a tiny village of supra has been clinging to this is scotland for 400 years. but you have to do what it is you abdullah shrieky was born here
5:07 pm
just like his brothers and cousins now they're turning the homes of their ancestors into guest houses for tourists. who lives. in church. each. other get out of the office and my grandfather used to live in this room in that office if you want and as you obviously we preferred of ornish the wood with all of oil because it's a natural oil. well one yet it preserves the beauty of the door and protects it for not one for 3 or. 4 families used to live around their grandfather's room just a few years ago life happened outside the rooms which is for sleeping and cooking on the open fire.
5:08 pm
a road now leads to the other side of the valley and the villages have moved into modern houses. getting a life in the new village is much more convenient than in the alt and right next to the road. so with a car everything you need is nearby. we have electricity and t.v. which is nice of course. that's the gist of the incident so it's only what. i have also thought i had to tickle we have created something really special here with this simple set up our guest house is different from other hotels tourists can experience what the place used to be like. and this is the kind of gentle tourism that could help replace oil and gas revenues.
5:09 pm
fishing has always been an important part of a man's economy. as. a mark also nonny grew up in a fishing family in korea out but nowadays the journey out to sea is really worth it. though their grandfathers told us they used to fish right here on the beach but if we have to go further and further out that i'm off without us just by that it's like. one solution is aquaculture. the armani ministry of fisheries has set up its own research and development center for the industry.
5:10 pm
amar has been working for the private aquaculture company blue waters. for over a year now. about 80 percent of the employees are a manny. and like many citizens in neighboring countries they don't shy away from jobs outside the air conditioned office blocks. but here too the private sector is considered a risky alternative to secure government jobs. either side of an english about and i'd advise all young people to look for jobs outside the government. if you don't get a job there try applying to private companies. lou waters lowered its 1st aquaculture cages into the sea in 2017. just a year later they produce $350.00 tons of fish. being at sea nation
5:11 pm
for example and all the people are traveling all over the place in that region in africa and in the continent subcontinent and therefore this is part of their activities in the past but with the oyu arrow that we are living in this has not been well received or well managed so people are lists willing to take risks we have better chances on trying to set our our approach to. our young people people in place for being more into canoe or small innovative. drops could also provide an alternative to oil and gas a man who's been trading minerals since ancient times.
5:12 pm
their names drawn from. man you actually. caused all your. calcium carbonate which is necessary for their making up their women as you see it is very white the purity is really. suitable for making the film and i am. a man is one of the few nations on the arabian peninsula with the rocky terrain 2 percent of its g.d.p. comes from mineral exports spurred by the binning construction industry in neighboring countries. in most of the gulf states it's the next biggest industry after or oil and gas there's money to be made from cement. the minerals are playing a rule here in measure all in all my whole with all of the challenges the major challenges on these our environment should be there is a strategy and
5:13 pm
a plan for it that not everything we would take it we should keep something for the future research and development should be also contain was and to their mind in. the project manager has created a lab in the factory alongside his job he's also doing a doctorate at the university of leeds in samit of course. this is similar. with using with from oil and gas. and we are trying to. explore the possibility of recycling those materials. as a raw material for cement manufacturing. the 1st attempts were successful. yesterday's industrial waste is becoming the raw material of tomorrow. kilo out to me is concerned with sustainability and part of that is giving
5:14 pm
a bigger role to women for example as engineers. increasing numbers of the money women are now studying mostly natural sciences. like at the german university in moscow at the only german university on the entire arabian peninsula most of the students here are women. one reason is that men tend to go abroad to study while women stay at home. because of the boom women are also studying subjects here that a male dominated in europe. like applied geosciences and that professor wilfred bauer from germany teaches the subject he says that studying he also encourages women to aspire to a korea like they're called most of my family members are and the petroleum
5:15 pm
industry so big and your size this i can't i can't be in the petroleum i actually did a training in petroleum companies but i also have like the new industry off my nose this is and you're thinking i'm on a tourism. hydrology so we have lots of sectors we can participate in. geosciences are opening up new economic sectors for the future and they also reach deep into a man's history. in the largest off year light in the world has in our mom it's the former ocean floor that formed here on the arabian tectonic plate a little more than 1000000000 years ago for those of us guns are something very special every year hundreds if not thousands of geologists come here to study the structure of the ocean floor here on me and what's on board the borders.
5:16 pm
what would normally lie a several kilometers below sea level is part of the man's landscape. is on her way to this ancient seabed the cliffs here a made up of it's layers which are easily accessible to researchers. to geologists works full time is vice president of the oman geological society and is a mother. she documents and measures the geological history of her country. 800000000 years worth of it. that's the upper most part of that if you're right it's called pillar. and that's the main form of the sea floor when the magma actually has the cool water so 30 to find that he will bellows. anyone who knows what they're looking for
5:17 pm
can recognize pillow lava immediately the lower section of the i feel light is called the mantle rock molten mantle that solidified several kilometers below the cold sea floor. they're quite unique in terms of they aren't tracking the public. let's say attention because there is a recently the study's fury that saves a few that runs actually can capture the carbon dioxide from the air and then at transform it into a different mineral so that's reducing the carbon dioxide percentage from the atmosphere. if these rocks could store the climate kill a c o 2 than a man one of the biggest oil producers could actually help mitigate the impact of fossil fuel production. but this research requires the support of the sultan and.
5:18 pm
this is one of the most delicate issues when it comes to the future of the gulf without political change the economy one change either. we normally concentrate on the economic aspects or diversification we have to consider the comic consequence to the politics as well as a social so that could make the impact but so far it has been only one side of the way that the regime has been govern for a long period of time where the head of states normally have full power and if you're going to share that power with the rest and therefore this has been a major constraint. so we need to learn how to undo that practice in the past and try to do it something differently where we can be more excluding more inclusive and more fair to the public many of these days versification initiatives are. that they're doing well they're they're being successful they're growing. but
5:19 pm
what happens if suddenly oil and gas for those stop are they able to continue on their own and in most cases the answer is no so that the trick then is to move from the actual diversification that's taking place into diversification that's sustainable in the post oil gas or. and that's harder to do. perhaps the younger generation will make these change happen if they want to maintain the standard of living economy and politics will have to change. these new generation hungry they realize that the old structures and systems are moving forward into a new opportunity and they are excited to be a part of that process. of. change is also more achievable if men and women can contribute equally to the process. i really believe women they have lots of capabilities they can do. good they can
5:20 pm
actually push their difficulties in the country and over we the children of the country don't help a man to grow then who will now lower the commish that we have to work for us no matter what it takes about them to get to the top you have to start at the bottom and. those are. what's needed is a generation that's driven off to experiment and not afraid to fail. we are the future of somebody. we are. we are the ones who are going to change the future of saudi arabia. but these optimists have convinced there is a future for them in the gulf beyond crude oil.

5:35 pm
full senate will make to vote on the timetable for this vote now the league is pushing for the no confidence motion to be put to the senate tomorrow which is very unlikely to be approved and we're likely to say that vote take place on august 28th when the prime minister to make contact is scheduled to address the senate that the other reason why the vote is on largely to take place tomorrow is that it is the and anniversary of the collapse of the marandi bridge in genoa and many of the politicians will be there for a memorial service and pushing a vote tomorrow things very unlikely and unlikely to win the pot for the support of the senate today a sunbeam its critics accuse him of political opportunism and manufacturing this crisis for his own benefit but does he have enough support to form a new government if there is a step election. well his popularity is running at around 38 percent at the moment
5:36 pm
which is very high and double where he was a year ago so he wants to seize this opportunity having said that he needs to get 40 percent of the vote to govern on his own and he has been having intense talks with forte's italia the party of the former prime minister silvio berlusconi and the far right brothers are usually together they could form a very powerful right wing a lot of it's that would take around 50 percent of the vote so he's looking very strong aligning off with those political parties there was some suggestion on the media today from pollsters that he could suffer a bit of a backlash from people who are very disturbed and upset that he's pushing for these early elections instead of allowing the government to take its course ryan just a few mckenna thank you very much for that update on the political crisis in italy you're watching the news coming up ahead the story of

a man who. attempted to flee communist east germany but ended up helping dozens more. but 1st to the indian city of mumbai it's hold just thousands of colonial structures but has recently seen a string of building collapses combine compounded by the heavy monsoon rains despite the danger many citizens carry on living in old dilapidated buildings i'd risk of collapse correspondence when you're funny went to mumbai to find out. young people in india has lived here for much of her life this building a century old was built just as world war one ended. it's a tough time for the 55 year old need pain but that isn't i mean what. she says the building which is 80 tenants is crumbling and that it had our delap
5:38 pm
all right how could you let it in that recently the slab of stone came loose and fitted seriously injuring a neighbor on the ground floor where you live in the one dream the kyunki shares with a family practice run to the whites the plaster. and bamboo sticks prop up the ceiling then there will be a way that it i live in constant fear that the building will collapse my children are at work all day so at least they're safe but my husband and i stayed home we could be cold but the way i see it we've lived our lives. already leaving the place isn't an option for young whose family owns a modest living tenant like her be just $10.00 a month here and grant some people even lives. that's due to a colonial era law that limits when spoiled buildings like this one but that also means owners get little money to invest in group is leaving the structures to rot. many areas in mumbai like here and come home to all of rickety properties data
5:39 pm
shows that are more than $14000.00 buildings in the city that have at risk of collapse due to a lack of maintainance and government apathy dealy and repairing them often have deadly consequences. last month a 4 story building collapsed at that spot killing more than a dozen people and injuring many more disasters of this kind on uncommon in the city. mumbai scrawny cows and was also linked to its dense population and scarcity of land the city is surrounded by water on 3 sites and has no space to grow. more than 40 percent of its 18000000 residents live in slums and shanty towns exposed at the heart of the problem of the city's sky high values and a powerful builders lobby. has sort of in the last 20 years. the
5:40 pm
situation will be a collapse of a building it would mean that there will be an option off redevelopment funds for the private developer and also because then they have much on most of these buildings out in the island to gain their own part of the prices of. the city. even for residents who do decide to keep their buildings in these prime areas on to much better. family used to live in an 80 year old building in south mumbai. until it partially collapsed one of. the governments in the residence here to the so-called transit camp to wait to the building was demolished and rebuilt. in here we thought it would take a year or 2 at most but now 13 whole years of come by we've just somehow continued
5:41 pm
living here in the hope that someday we will get our own home. and dangerous place. option would be to get out and lead a much better life in a far flung suburb either way it's not much of a choice of 50 years ago today work began on the construction of the berlin wall the barrier was intended to stop people fleeing from communist east germany to rest and to rest germany the war turned red into a virtual island in the midst of communist china tree it was surrounded by more than 150 kilometers of massive fortifications at least 136 people were killed trying to get across a war and in total more than 600 people were killed trying to flee east germany into the west now the berlin wall stood for 28 years. then in 1909 a series of mass protests fed off
5:42 pm
a chain of events that ultimately led to the opening of the front and it was also to mark the end of communism in central and eastern europe the during the time the world stood dissidents in east and west germany helps model thousands of people across the you know german border and often a dangerous and difficult mission are deported christina caught up with one of them . the best thing about jail hartmut richter says was being let out of his cell once a day to walk around inside a large wire cage as a young man he was held for months in a detention center run by the east german ministry of state security for trying to flee the country and for aiding others in their attempts to escape. they didn't abuse us physically they called it a corrosion it was a method they used to try and grind through hyper control isolation this information has been the worst 11 months of my life here after you start to long to
5:43 pm
be sentenced. mr never accepted life under the east german regime and tried to flee for the 1st time by train when he was just 18 he was arrested and put behind bars. when building began on the berlin wall on the 13th of august 1961 he knew he had to escape he saw how brutally the regime was cracking down on dissenters. as a young person at some point you have to ask yourself how long am i going to play this raid have how long can i take it or do i want to cooperate with them to find myself a little nations who is a long as you're still studying you have to get all of this crap in every essay there had to be a commitment to socialism and if you needed good marks you just wrote that rubbish down. a short time later richter attempted to escape again he swam across a border river on the edge of berlin and made it to freedom he was in the water for 4 hours before he finally managed to get through
5:44 pm
a barbed wire fence and onto the shore on the western side on the eastern side he would have been shot. at the cup in his office and so i had a guardian angel that lied i knew there were alarms regarded as in the twilight i saw a thin piece of wire stretched from bridge post a bridge post if i had touched it he would have gone off and they would have immediately fired shots. at the force of. dozens of people died in this way along the berlin wall it's still not clear just how many the regime ruthlessly punished anyone who tried to flee. nevertheless mr continued to help more than 30 people escape by smuggling them into west germany in the trunk of his car he was caught again and spent 5 years in prison before being bought out by the western governments he now gives tours in his former prison often for schoolchildren he thinks young people should learn that east germany was a to tell a tarion state. it's. your will. if you can see that young people are aware and
5:45 pm
interested that's why i do this out of a sense of the conviction will always be like that before. that's how tartlet reached their overcome the brutality of the stasi the east german secret police now he's able to tell the story as one of those who paid a price for wanting freedom. of choice. today is international left hand the dazed designed to raise awareness of the difficulties left handed beaten face in a right handed but for athletes like tennis. playing left handed knee have been an advantage nadal isn't the greatest dentist is a poor time a lot of his dominance is down to the fact that he's a left hand but the twisted. he does everything else with the right hand from signing autographs to brushing his teeth he decided to play a left handed as
5:46 pm
a china. now let's get some expert opinion on this and to me how it can be done sports desk is here he himself is left handed so answer the you have inside knowledge now do left have at least really have an advantage of west or like to think so but statistically it's now been proven research as went out to prove the point that existed in the minds of a lot of sports fans that left handers were somehow overrepresented in sport not just generally in the pool of sports people but at the very top the legends of the sport so you think of buy booze in by sport monica seles gretzky in ice hockey never met a live in the doll mcenroe cause the list goes on and on and on and so the researchers went to bear out that and i came by land of the 2 sports tennis and baseball by school was where it's most noticeable keep in mind 10 percent of the population a left hand has been in baseball 30 percent of the professional baseball is and
5:47 pm
major league baseball. left handed it's the can say the the realist and so do we don't know why left handers have an advantage in sport so the study was published in the biological letters of the world society website it pointed to the sports of tennis and by spall and that's and read it for a very good reason that's where it's a combative sport on the left hand of play against your right hand and these 2 sports give you a split 2nd to make a decision that i'm giving you something different i'm put giving you a different angle and your brain has to calculate the different angle and turn it around into a smart decision it's not unfortunately as a left hand i'm on telly with a barbecue because we're stronger and fatah so it is simply this moment where you're forced to make a decision on something that looks different that's the essence of where the event ok so what other than special training routines full time to sports now is a highly for right handers to get used to the left handed world particularly on this dynamic roger federer had to prepare especially for rafa nadal at wimbledon
5:48 pm
knowing that he had a semi final he sought out a left hander and spent 2 days practicing with a left handed just so he could get in some way used what the only thing that doesn't make sense is that the research didn't bear out a known scientific fact to me is that left handers just look way cool doing it. and of course left handedness extends even to the world cup when it's illegal in football diego maradona's hand of god with the left hand pointed out to me by a german football fan of course this english moment of misery but even he was using the left hand to his advantage the longer a sign of the devil as we have there at the sign of go go on and you and i know you play tennis so obviously you have a slight advantage when you do that don't you of will have when we meet ok you're right and to me now live from the depths bostick wonderful to talk to you. you're watching new day of news coming to you live from but then here's a recap of the top stories a fearful of in-field hong kong's international airport has effectively been shut down for a 2nd day as pro-democracy demonstrators th and other mass. donnegan

6:13 pm
perspective the national trust perspective it does mean that we're not going to be able to access really important bodies for a lot of the work that way down which is quite unfortunate. the u.k. will hardly take over the subsidies currently coming in from brussels it seems angler is not a high enough priority to the british government. tourism is and will is line 300 the sea its capital. so the plan for the. islamic followers must not overwhelm on the trail this is going to let them look up to the north to break that leave because either should look of the other bottom would fall it's not. as they come down i'm going to start putting them together so that's my role for the day and then they feel comfortable with the steel and i'm going to say the fullest so that the current president.

6:35 pm
a colonial era law that limits rain spoil buildings like this one but that also means owners get little money to invest in repairs leaving the structures to rot. many areas in mumbai like here and come back home to all of rickety properties data shows that are more than $14000.00 buildings in the city that at risk of collapse due to a lack of maintainance and government apathy the deal and repairing them often had deadly consequences. last month a 4 story building collapsed at the spot killing more than a dozen people and injuring many disasters of this kind on uncommon in the city. mumbai scrawny cousine was also linked to its dense population and scarcity of land the city is surrounded by water on 3 sites and has no place to grow. more than 40

here to the so-called transit camp to wait till the building was demolished and rebuilt. we moved in here we thought it would take a year or 2 at most but now 13 whole years have gone by we've just somehow continued living here in the hope that someday we will get our own home. for young is a much lighter and dangerous place. option would be to get out and lead a much better life in a far flung suburb either way it's not much of a choice the italian senate will convene later for a special session to try and set a date for of no confidence in the populist coalition government last week the leader of the far right league body interior minister salvini kaur for snap elections in a bid to lead a new government. salvini will do want every it
6:38 pm
takes to win over the public even when he should be off. if italy's deputy prime minister gets his way he'll soon be fighting an election. the populist politician says the coalition government comprised of his far right league party and the 5 star movement is no longer working for you if you are the question we ask that we vote as soon as possible then the italians will choose a government that governs and does so for 5 years because in recent months there have been too many quarrels insults blockades and nos to justice no to the olympics no 2 autonomy no 2 reforms italy cannot afford to know the membership of. the league in 5 star have gotten together for just over a year but they've struggled to agree even on key policies. the italian senate has now been recall from its summer break to decide to date for
6:39 pm
a no confidence vote in the prime minister it's a move that's in rage the leader of the 5 star movement there. you'll see that italians will make the lead pay for the stop in the bucket as delta italy. because we are not talking about any old action but creating a government crisis in the middle of august dragging italy into elections in the autumn. this has not happened since 1919 and. if prime minister giuseppe contain loses the no confidence vote the government will fold. although italy's president will decide the next step many expect selvi need to remain center stage. for the very latest let's head to journalist josephine mckenna josephine can you walk us through what we can expect when the italian senate meets today. well
6:40 pm
late last night there was no agreement from the senate leaders on scheduling the timing of this no confidence motion today the senate the full senate will meet to voice on the timetable for this vote now the league is pushing for the no confidence motion to be put to the senate tomorrow which is very unlikely to be approved and we're likely to say that vote take place on august 28th when the prime minister does it make contact is scheduled to address the senate the other reason why the vote is on largely to take place tomorrow is that it is the and anniversary of the collapse of the marandi bridge in genoa and many of the politicians will be there for a memorial service and pushing a vote tomorrow saying it's very unlikely and unlikely that when they pull the support of the senate today outside of venus critics accuse him of political opportunism and manufacturing this crisis for his own benefit but does he have
6:41 pm
enough support to form when you government if there is a stop election. well his popularity is running at around 38 percent at the moment which is very hot and double where he was a year ago so he wants to seize this opportunity having said that he needs to get 40 percent of the voters to govern on his own and he has been having intense talks with forte's italia the party of the former prime minister silvio berlusconi and the far right brothers recently together they could form a very powerful right wing a lot of that would take around 50 percent of the vote so he's looking very strong lining up with those political parties there was some suggestion on the media today from pollsters that he could suffer a bit of a backlash from people who are very disturbed and upset that he's pushing for these early elections instead of allowing the government to take its course brian just
6:42 pm
a few mckenna thank you very much for that update on the political crisis in. a 58 years ago today work began on the construction of the bulletin board the barrier was intended to stop people fleeing from communist east germany to rest but and to rest gemini or turn into a virtual island in the midst of communist china tree it was surrounded by more than 150 kilometer has a massive 45 k. sions at least 136 people were killed trying to get across a bug in war and in talking more than 600 people were killed trying to flee east germany into the west now the bulletin board stood for 28 years then in 1909 a series of mass protests set off a chain of events that ultimately led to the opening of the front and it was also to mark the end of communism in central and eastern europe. that during the time the world stood dissidents in east and west germany had smuggled pounds of people
6:43 pm
across it in a german border often a dangerous and difficult mission are deported christina caught up with one of them . the best thing about jail says was being let out of a cell once a day to walk around inside a large wire cage as a young man he was held for months in a detention center run by the east german secret police the stasi for trying to flee the country and for aiding others in their attempts to escape. your music of christmas on new day they didn't abuse us physically they called it corrosion it was a method they used to try and grind us down through hyper control isolation this information has been the worst 11 months of my life here after a while you start to long to be sentenced to to never accepted life under the east german regime and trying to flee for the 1st time by train when he was just 18 he was arrested and put behind bars when building began on the berlin wall on the 13th
6:44 pm
of august 1961 he knew he had to escape he saw how brutally the regime was cracking down on the center as it was the other woman was a young person at some point you have to ask yourself how long am i going to play this raid have how long can i take it if you were doing i want to cooperate with them to find myself a little nation this is a long as you're still studying you had to get all of this crap in every essay there had to be a commitment to socialism and if you needed good marks you just wrote that rubbish down. a short time later attempted to escape again. he swam across a border river on the edge of berlin and made it to freedom. he was in the water for 4 hours before he finally managed to get through a barbed wire fence and onto the shore on the western side on the eastern side he would have been chopped. off the foot so i had a guardian angel that lied i knew there were alarms regarded as
6:45 pm
a minute while i saw a thin piece of wire stretched from bridge post a bridge post if i had touched it he would have gone off and they would have immediately fired shots. at the force of. dozens of people died in this way along the berlin wall it's still not clear just how many the regime ruthlessly punished anyone who tried to flee. nevertheless wish to continue to help more than 30 people escape by smuggling them into west germany in the boot of his car he was caught again and spent 5 years in prison before he was pushed out by the west german government the 71 year old now gives tours in his former prison he thinks young people should learn that east germany was a totalitarian state. and you can see that young people are aware and interested that's why i do this and to see out of a sense of a little victualling will be back when you will always be like that before.
6:46 pm
back stealing us help tot mom overcome the brutality of the stasi now he's able to tell a story as one of those who paid a price for wanting freedom. that report but do you have his christina because now today is international left candace day the day is designed to raise awareness of the difficulties left handed people face in their right handed was the for athletes like dennis out of fun and i think playing left handed may have been an advantage and the is. the greatest and if there's ever been a lot of his dominance is put down to the fact that he's a left handed but the twist in the about he does everything else with his right hand from signing autographs to brushing his teeth he decided to play left handed as a child and let's get some extra opinion on this and to me how it can be done in sports desk if he himself is left handed so actually you have inside knowledge now do
6:47 pm
left have at least really have an advantage of west and raise or like to think so but statistically it's now been proven research as went out to prove a point that existed in the minds of a lot of sports fans that left handers were somehow overrepresented in sport not just generally in the pool of sports people but at the very top the legends of the sport so you think of by bruising by sport monica seles gretzky in ice hockey never met a live in the doll mcenroe connors the list goes on and on and on and so the researchers went to bear out that and i came by land of the 2 sports tennis and baseball baseball was where is most noticeable keep in mind 10 percent of the population a left hand has been in baseball 30 percent of the professional baseball is in my jewelry baseball left handed so it's the can say the the realist and so what do we do then why i left town does have an advantage in sport so the study was published in the biological letters of the royal society website it pointed to the sports of
6:48 pm
tennis and by spall and that's and read it for a very good reason that's where it's a combative sport on a left handed play against your right hand and these 2 sports give you a split 2nd to make a decision that i'm giving you something different i'm put giving you a different angle and your brain has to calculate the different angle and turn it around into a smart decision it's not unfortunately as a left hand i'm on telly with a barbecue because with stronger and fatah it is simply this moment where you're forced to make a decision on something that looks different that's the essence of where the events last so what other than special training routines for left handed spy. now he's a highly for right handers to get used to the left handed world particularly on this dynamic of federer had to prepare especially for rafa nadal at wimbledon knowing that he had a semi final he sought out a left hander and spent 2 days practicing with a left handed just so he could get in some way used what the only thing that doesn't make sense is that the research didn't bear out a known scientific fact to me is that left handers just look quite cool doing it.
6:49 pm
and of course left handedness extends even to the world cup when it's illegal in football diego maradona's hand of god with the left hand pointed out to me by a german football fan of course this english moment of misery but even he was using the left hand to his advantage no longer a sign of the devil as we have the at the sign of go go on and you and i know you play tennis so obviously you have a slight advantage when you do that don't you will have when we meet ok you're right and to me now live from the depths bostick wonderful to talk to you. here's a recap of the top story that the funding for your hong kong said what has been shut down for a 2nd day and still democracy demonstrators stage another mass that in hong kong chief executive kerry long is warning of the challenge is on a vote of no. it wasn't a dozen years i have more news for you at the top of the hour but up next is our program kickoff which is about sport in the district doesn't do stay with us for that if you get.

8:38 pm
a year ago so he wants to seize this opportunity having said that he needs to get 40 percent of the voters to govern on his own and he has been having intense talks with forte's entirely the party of the former prime minister silvio berlusconi and the far right brothers obviously together they could form a very powerful right wing a lot of that would take around 50 percent of the vote so he's looking very strong and lining up with those political parties there was some suggestion on the media today from pollsters that he could suffer a bit of a backlash from people who are very disturbed and upset that he's pushing for these early elections instead of allowing the government to take its course right just a few mckenna thank you very much for that update on the political crisis in it to me of 58 years ago today work began on the construction of the wall the barrier was intended to stop people fleeing from communist east germany to rest but

8:43 pm
soon become preventable and treatable after 2 experimental drugs showed up to 90 percent of infected people can survive several drugs for a trial to on patients in the democratic republic of congo the latest a major outbreak of the disease is killed over 1800 people there in the past year research shows that survival rates rise significantly if treated early. earlier with the 2 most effective drugs that will now be used to treat all congolese patients with the disease. and for more let me draw in jeremy for our he is the courtship of the w.h.o. ebola therapeutics group in london welcome mr for what's your reaction to news of these 2 new drugs and how drowned bricking are these findings. on thrills i think it is a yeah you described it well or
8:44 pm
a major breakthrough in the ebola. we shouldn't forget isabella outbreaks been going on for a year and of course we all remember the horrors of west africa but just to pause for a 2nd and say that over the last 34 years we've we now have what we think is 2 vaccines which work very effectively and we now have probably 2 treatments which can treat people who are infected and we're turning a disease which was terrifying with a very high mortality rate maybe 70 or 80 percent into something which is both preventable and potentially treatable that's a major change in how we think about a bill because the democratic republic of congo was very badly hit by the virus but how prevalent is the boiler virus was wide at the moment. so a bowler exists in a very large animal population that across a large part of sub-saharan africa across the middle of the continent. in bath
8:45 pm
scene in primates and in other species and it just occasionally it comes across into humans and so we've had about 20 or 3040 outbreaks of the bullet since 1976 but critically what's changed is is that instead of these outbreaks being in relatively isolated villages in countries like democratic but the congo they're now coming into major cities and cities and obviously densely populated with people people travel in trade very often from cities and so therefore it can spread and so the west africa outbreak of 2014 and 15 is is sort of the sort of the polar outbreak we're likely to face in the future and you're seeing that in north kivu in congo today big cities where transmission can be very intense so you feel quite optimistic about these 2 new vaccines how quickly will patients get access to these new treatments and will that be affordable. so patients will get these treatments
8:46 pm
today. any patients that's now incidence of these studies and studies will continue until for a few months yet. every patient will be offered one of these treatments as a movement we cannot decide which is the best the most they make both equally effective but every patient who presents to a treatment center. will receive these drugs independent of whether they can pay it or not that's completely immaterial. and this needs countries like germany u.k. europe english america china and others it needs to come together and make it clear that in every future outbreak patients will have access to these vaccines and these treatments independence of their ability to pay this is going to be a commitment the world makes having done these trials and instead leagues in ongar . germany farah the co-chair for. a few to screw up in london thank you very much for all those insights thank you. in

a major sources of income how did that go well they went a bit better than the previous year largely because dortmund performed better on the pitch they gave by a very close run for the burners league title merchandise ticket sales sponsorship they were up dormant or 3rd generation more money from t.v. rights that actually increased by 30. 167000000 euros and it was thanks to a new t.v. deal signed between the. german league t.v. rights as a lot of growth potential for the bring this league. in the digital platform is interested in securing domestic rights. that next year. has been listed on the stock market. was 1st listed it was a big. house of the club's performance. to be listed on the stock exchange they did it in 2000 when they were really struggling financially and needed a quick injection of cash for
9:15 pm
a while things worked out ok they spent a lot of money and then it went wrong because the players didn't deliver and they almost went bankrupt in 2005 so. mad in many ways the not going to be spending the money. of course being on the stock exchange you do have a responsibility. by far and away the rich a club so don't have developed this reputation as a bit of a sounding. rough diamonds if you like and then sell them on for a massive profit is all about risk reward and this isn't don't do seem to be taking risks they spend a lot of money they. have 35000000 euros. coming in. complaining that actually they've no on the transfer market so that's going to be very interesting rivalry that real value. of course to. make them. investing in football shed as buying. is not something for fun
9:16 pm
so is it reasonable invest some people with. the risky business but. because it is results orientated and that happens every weekend you see that every weekend with your team wins or loses i think. it really do as an investment of passion because they support all they care about is the club. doing well on the pitch but if that happens for example dortmund if they won the league if they have a very good run the lucrative champions league brings in more prize money and that is going to be reflected ultimately in the club's revenue and the club price is it would you recommend going on the stock market would you recommend that to other football clubs as well i mean i think the thing with the stock market is it can bring some stability it can bring some money in but you do have to be a lot more caffeine that you're on for your shareholders you can't be taking crazy risks that maybe some clubs to manchester city for example and the premier league owns by the sec some abu dhabi money seems to be no problem for them they can

9:28 pm
they're also signs for chinese security buildup on the hong kong border this if you listen to something else said this morning this time she's spoken cantonese. hong kong society has become unsafe and unstable violence no matter who commits it or who lets it happen is pushing hong kong onto a road of no return this will make hong kong society extremely anxious and create a dangerous. situation. if you think that sounds like a much more often ominous a warning up for test as voted the possibly crackdown may be imminent. gabble facing in hong kong authorities they're using something more like a hospital system to try to imitate the protests and sit in on the

9:32 pm
to official as you're going to guess when the video emerged it contained described stirring nationalistic music and it seems to show images of of military vehicles in shenzhen which is this is bordering hong kong this investment. which has built a success largely on the success of hong kong and it poses a very distinct trash given the location of where the video was shot and we've seen videos on social media we seem to be confirming. this that's right i mean there have been on twitter there's been other sources which which show more force edge this time without the propaganda music in the background but they do seem to show that there have been quite intense movements in jan which is just support across the border from hong kong as you said so it looks like there is there is something definitely happening there and what is the point here foot of circulating these videos especially the video is we should come from
9:33 pm
a mouthpiece of the beijing government you know it's interesting just last week we had a similar video which was showing the military exploits of people of the army taking off what looked like students speaking countries which is the dialect of chinese spoken in hong kong this week we have this video coming out which shows armored personnel carriers and troop carriers it's a very aggressive message it's i think a message designed to frighten the people in hong kong who are taking to the streets to protest you have from me the people don't appear to be frightened but who are the people to police which apparently of the people who are involved in this well the people's armed police or the v.a.p. are a branch of the people's liberation army which is the. umbrella term for all the chinese military which is the official army of the communist party rule in china their power moves he force there is by some reports of about 1500000 members i've seen them in action against tibet and demonstrators in the tibetan area of china back in

2008 they're very formidable force to look at them is very difficult to tell them apart from the from the army because they were in military uniforms and they carry weapons very similar to the p.l.o. a the p.l.o. in many ways the because the ration army is more looking outwards whereas they're charged with dealing with domestic matters and internal matters so it won't be signs that fia seen coming out of beijing and from the hong kong authorities look on is the question which everyone is asking leave me see another tenements clack you know they certainly do look on i'm a. ominous i think the repercussions of another tiananmen square given that you know in the 30 years since the crackdown on democracy in beijing. the world has changed there's a lot more pub a lot more information out there china has become a lot more open to the world the same calm his party is in is in control as back in 1989 some of some of the similar figures are still around but i think in terms of the overall impact it's very hard to imagine that this is turning into another sort
