tv The Papers BBC News November 18, 2018 10:30pm-11:01pm GMT
kent, perhaps another one around lincolnshire and yorkshire. cold wind, around a0 or 50 mph, it'll make it better. it will be a cold day with temperatures around six or 7 degrees, but factor in the strength of the wind, it will feel much colder than that, close to freezing perhaps. tuesday night could bring some hill snow, in higher areas. looking at the jet stream pattern midweek, we have a big block set up. low pressure in the south, high pressure in the north. the main jet stream streams across the mediterranean, bringing stormy weather, perhaps affecting greece as we look into the weather in the week ahead. the weather won't change a great deal, because of the block, the atlantic can't exert its warming influence on our weather, because the wind comes from a different direction. coming from an easterly direction, it will be cold on wednesday. a lot of cloud, still some patches of rain, but the cloud will drift northwards into scotland and northern ireland.
chilly, highs for some just reaching 5 degrees. that's your weather. hello. this is bbc news with lukwesa barak. we'll be taking a look at tomorrow mornings papers in a moment, first the headlines. theresa may fights back, saying replacing her as conservative leader wouldn't make the brexit negotiations any easier and warning of a crucial week ahead. these next seven days will be critical. they are about the pitch of the country, people's jobs, their livelihoods, the future of their children and grandchildren. at a commemoration event in germany, the french president makes an impassioned plea for a stronger, united europe. the former wales and lions rugby captain gareth thomas speaks out after suffering a homophobic attack in cardiff. hello and welcome to our look ahead
to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are peter conradi, who's the europe editor for the sunday times, and the business journalistjohn crowley. thank you for coming in, both of you. thank you for coming in, both of you. many of tomorrow's front pages are already in. the metro leads with theresa may's insistence that she'll be staying put in number 10 despite the divisions within her party over the brexit deal. the daily express says the prime minister will go on the offensive tomorrow by insisting teh brexit deal witll by insisting that her brexit deal witll return border controls to britain. the telegraph reveals the former foreign secretary, borisjohnson‘s plan to save brexit, and claims theresa may will not renegotiate the eu withdrawal agreement.
the daily mail claims the backgrounds of thousands of foreign doctors are being checked after a woman with no qualifications was allowed to work as an nhs psychiatrist for over twenty years. the times quotes the former tory chief whip, andrew mitchell, who warns mps against "hunting down" theresa may for the party leadership. the sun details a fracas which resulted in five soldiers from the queen's guard being arrested after a drunken brawl in windsor. the guardian says the prime minister will seize back control of her party from rebel mps with a speech to business leaders promoting her brexit deal. those are the front pages, gentle men. let's start off, it is going to be a
brexit fest. let's start off with the telegraph. theresa may this week, as she was saying earlier on, this is a hugely important week for her. she is speaking tomorrow at the confederation of british industries where she will apparently, according to the telegraph, slapped down the brexiteers, gang of five who have not resigned from the cabinet as yet, and say there will be no more negotiations to the eu deal. they have been keen to stress that perhaps we can eke out a little bit more from the eu and try and give us a few more points. she is resolutely saying no. she is saying the core elements of the deal are already in place. the withdrawal agreement has been agreed, subject to final agreement being reached on the framework. is that a risky strategy to ta ke framework. is that a risky strategy to take considering it still has to
go through parliament? she is not taking on anything on board. maybe she is not listening. risky compared to what? the alternative is promising to re—negotiated? it has taken them two years to get to this deal. the idea that suddenly she can do another deal will be acceptable? pigs might fly. what we are seeing in the telegraph and the other papers isa in the telegraph and the other papers is a determined attempt by the government to put a positive spin on it, to say this is the deal, to challenge the pizza five, whatever they are called, to put up or shut up. it is all about defiance and positive spin. there is a line in here, the big number everybody is hearing is a8, and we heard so much over the weekend that they will not reach that number, they will not
reach that number, they will not reach the threshold. even if they get the numbers, she will not lose the boat, or rather win the vote depending on how you look at it. what do you make of that? so far 25 mps have come out and said they have written to sir graham brady who runs the 1922 committee who will chair a leadership boat if they get enough. they need a8 at the moment. there may be some who have already decided to write to him and have not publicly stated it. but clearly they have not got that number. sir graham was saying that he would announce immediately, it is insulting for him to hear that he is holding back if he has not got the a8. but interestingly he said he had not told his wife if he had reached that number. she is a parliamentary
assistant. their pillow talk will be interesting! there's go to the guardian. i think we have to after that. she has got pressure from everywhere. she has got to divide the tory rebels. this is basically the tory rebels. this is basically the same story but spun in a different way. what is interesting as part of their attempt to put a positive spin on the deal is this quote saying, getting back full control of our borders is an issue of great importance to the british people. she will be saying to the cbi that eu citizens will no longer be able tojump the queue ahead of engineers from sydney or software developers from delhi. she is saying we will have full control of our borders. what she is not saying is how will the other eu countries react to that? what will be the situation of the expat brits in france, in spain and italy and all
these places? it is quite a sensitive issue, particularly for those people in france. i wrote a story a few weeks ago about expats in france and they are concerned and they are quite worried. that might come back to bite her i think. this particular article also mentions the political declaration that we are hearing about. yes, last week we had the departure agreement with the eu which no one agrees with. the next thing is a non—binding kind of declaration of political interest between the eu and the uk and they will say what they want to happen after the uk except the eu. you can argue if it is non—binding it is not worth the paper it is written on. one of your reporters were saying there was only five pages of content. they need to be set up this week. but this week there is a path
into the eu summit which happens next sunday which is where they hope they will sign the departure. on top of that there is this political statement which they will say this is how we want to trade negotiations to go on after the uk exit. you mentioned the eu borders and this is what the daily express is saying. this is the third version of the same story. the daily express story is taking that point and saying we will get back control of our borders. but i would have thought i would have been critical of theresa may and on the side of the plotters, the pro—brexit may and on the side of the plotters, the pro— brexit plotters, may and on the side of the plotters, the pro—brexit plotters, or the hardline brexiteers, trying to get their way. it is not. it seems to be throwing its weight behind theresa may which is interesting. the daily
mail as well as kind of weirdly, since the new editor has taken over, they have almost gone remain. last week the daily mail described the brexiteers saboteurs and under paul bakehs brexiteers saboteurs and under paul baker's editorship he was calling the remainers that. in a way theresa may has been backed and that will give her some succour and the papers are backing her and almost demonising these brexiteers. she is acting statesman—like, she is holding a course, perhaps she is inflexible, but she is digging in. then we have these brexiteers in other papers, like dominic raab, he has been criticised as well. warning from andrew mitchell in the
times, saying let's not make the same mistake that we made with margaret thatcher. they have got a slightly more original spin on it. he is basically saying that they should not make the same mistake, they should not drive her out. if you do get rid of theresa may, what then happens? whoever comes in, how do they solve this problem? will they come up with a deal that is somehow better than the one we have got? it is by no means clear that they will be able to, given the two size they have to reconcile. and michael heseltine was the person who took on margaret thatcher so many yea rs took on margaret thatcher so many years ago and he lost the prize. he tried to take her on and lost. it is interesting that dominic raab says he resigned from the government but he resigned from the government but he still supports the prime minister. he does not want to be seen to be plunging the knife in. it is 28 years to the day on tuesday
when it was the leadership election against margaret thatcher. it could be happening this week. after they got rid of margaret thatcher the tories were in for another seven years. i'm quite keen to get to the front the independent. we are talking about the economic impact of brexit. i picked something up earlierfrom a brexit. i picked something up earlier from a german brexit. i picked something up earlierfrom a german mep brexit. i picked something up earlier from a german mep who brexit. i picked something up earlierfrom a german mep who is saying michel barnier has been clever because he has not once mentioned the economic impact on european countries. he is always talking about the uk, but others will suffer. he is saying perhaps they should handle the uk with more respect. handle with more respect, what does that mean precisely? trade isa what does that mean precisely? trade is a two—way process. there are some
areas, particularly in parts of france in the north around calais, that region is dependent on trade with britain. countries like holland as well. germany to some extent. obviously they are aware of the negative impact of a hard brexit certainly and want to mitigate that. ina sense certainly and want to mitigate that. in a sense it is a bit late for the negotiating now. the deal has been negotiated. i do not think it can be unpicked. you don't? i don't think it can. is that shocking? a lot of people are saying it can still end up people are saying it can still end up no deal. the deal is not unpicked if it is no deal. theresa may and the eu are saying there is no change to the deal. ijust wondered down the back channels there might be something where they say, give us a
bone, particularly on the backstop. that could happen next week at the summit. very quickly before we return to the daily mail. the independent is talking about this data that theresa may has refused to release. essentially there is data which is comparing britain's economic prospects under brexit to what they would have been if we had stayed in the eu. the independent is making quite a lot of it. all these counterfactual things. they will probably show that britain would have grown more if we had stayed in the eu if we had not gone for a brexit. you can take it with a pinch of salt. what do you make about the daily mail picture? prince charles and a lovely photo with prince louis, his latest grandson. it was his 70th birthday last week. a
lovely photo. he has been criticised for not being the kind of grandfather they want. i think this isa grandfather they want. i think this is a bit of spin from the palace. you will be back at 11:30 p:m.. a lot of breakfast... a lot of brexit... it lot of breakfast... a lot of brexit. .. it has lot of breakfast... a lot of brexit... it has been a long day. i hope you willjoin us at half past 11. next, it is the film review. hello there, and welcome to the film review here on bbc news. and taking us through this week's cinema releases is mark kermode. what delights do you have for us this week, mark? very interesting week,
we have fantastic beasts: the crimes of grindelwald which is the latest in thejk rowling wizard world expanding. we have suspiria, which is a remake of the dario argento 1977 horror classic. and the price of everything a documentary about the intersection of art and commerce. ok, so, fantastic beasts: the crimes of grindel —vald or —wald? even within the films the w and v sounds are slightly floating. are you a harry potter fan? up to a point. 0k. there's some question about whether or not if you hadn't kept up with the expanding harry potter wizarding universe, how much of this you would follow. it follows on from fantastic beasts and where to find them left off. essentially grindelwald was in prison at the beginning, there is a fantastic escape sequence, he goes to europe to spread his anti—muggle, pure blood message. meanwhile, eddie redmayne's
character of newt is enlisted to help thwart his rise. but dumbledore, now played byjude law as the younger incarnation of dumbledore, is conflicted. here's a clip. why can't you go? i cannot move against grindelwald. it has to be you. i can't blame you. in your shoes i'd probably refuse, too. it is late. good evening, newt. wait, no. oh, come on. dumbledore. so, it's an odd one,
on the one hand, i like this world, i like these characters, and i was somebody who was very much seduced by the harry potter cinematic world because the first films i wasn't crazy about and then i kind of fell into them round about the time of prisoner of azka ban. one of the issues with this is, and this was something which was true of the star wars prequels, because the world that has been created is so big and expansive, when you start telling this story from this perspective, there is an awful lot of detail and plot and characters and threads and i do feel that there are times that this gets lost in its own back story, in its own threading the narrative together. that said, there's a sort of strange tonal mix, on the one hand you get moments of slapstick comedy, which we have always had in the potter movies, there are times when you have spectacular set pieces, great big visual effects, set pieces, huge things happening on screen in a way which is rather delightful. you also get the return to hogwarts, which which was a moment,
at the screening i was in, you could hear people enjoying that. and there is also a lot of darkness in the same way that there was with the deathly hallows films and i think some of it works, some of it gets confused and tied up in its own back story and logic. however, it does come together in what's kind of the third act, when all of these themes about the central character, who is somebody who's basically spinning lies and deceit and has this aryan philosophy of pure bloods, which is something which has run all the way through the stories, and this is tied in with the politics of the era in a way which looks like its setting us up for something very interesting in the next film and again that is one of the weaknesses of this, quite a lot of it felt like getting everything in the right place so that the next instalment can do something really interesting. i mean if you are a fan of this world and there's no question people will go to see it, there are very good things in it,
some nice performances and touches, i did feel it got lost in its own exposition, there was almost too much plot fighting for space. and there are times when it lacked that central clear line which you need through this kind of narrative. but by the time we got to the end of it, it had gathered it all together, ok, fine, now i'm ready for the next instalment — that is going to be quite a way off. there is going to be quite a few more! there will be, yes. it's doing fine. it'lljust kind of keep going. suspiria, supernatural horror, is that the right categorisation? ok, well, did you ever see the dario argento suspiria? i'm afraid i didn't. quick primer, dario argento in the ‘70s, having done these giallo thrillers moved into sort of supernatural suspense, horror and suspiria was a huge international hit, moving on from the work he had set up until that point. everything was very stylish. the story was an american dancer comes to europe, she enrols at a dance academy where she uncovers witchy secrets. now we have what tilda swinton describes not as a remake
but a cover version directed by luca guadagnino. story is dakota johnson comes to europe, she enrols in a berlin academy, a divided berlin it is set in, and she goes to a dance academy where she uncovers witchy secrets. but this one, which is pretty much an hour longer than the argento version, there's an awful lot of back story about baader—meinhof, about nazi legacy, about the changing role of women in pre and post war society. there is an awfully sort of verbose feeling of explaining everything. my problem with it is there are individual things in this which are very good, the dance numbers are evocative horror dance numbers in the same way that gaspar noe's film climax had evocative dance numbers. the problem is when i watched suspiria by dario argento, there was no point where i thought, this is great but what it really needs is an hour of people holding forth about the politics of this specific time. also, the dario argento one alludes to its timeless setting whereas this one is very specifically set when it is set and there is a lot of stuff about what is
going on in the news! and the weird thing is that if, like me, you're a horrorfan, you will think, the argento was pretty much untouchable and what this has done is demonstrate that there are interesting things you can do with that idea, but i'm not sure that weighing it down with all this padding and baggage is actually to anyone's benefit. however, i do know a couple of people who have seen it and said, well, i think it's the masterpiece that the argento version never was. they're wrong — but it is an interesting if utterly flawed opinion! they're wrong but it's their a valid opinion! they have every right to be completely wrong! you're so generous! it's not about being generous, it's about being right! this isjust a matter of right and wrong. the next one a documentary, the price of everything. yeah, which leads us very nicely into this. my opinion is my opinion, why is it any better than anyone else's? it employs the phrase price of everything — which implies price of everything
and the value of nothing. it's a documentary about how we now live in a world in which a art commerce is this multibillion—dollar industry and in which modern art sells for millions and millions, not old masters but modern art, which is being made now, selling for millions... speaking of that, we have been reporting on bbc news that a david hockney has sold at auction for £70 million and that is the highest value for a work by living painter to be sold. by a living painter to be sold. wow. in a way that makes this all the more timely because at the beginning of this, you see this montage of auctions in which huge amounts of money are going... we hear from artists and auctioneers and dealers, collectors and investors, about what it is that they are doing and what it is that they are investing in. and the thing i like about the documentary is, it's notjudgemental, it's not saying you can't possibly talk about art and commerce because the two things are bound up.
at one point it says, all of this money is making people make more sun, and stop complaining about it! people make more of it, and stop complaining about it! then there is the question of supply and demand, if there is more of it, is it worth less? then there is the people who wanted to go somewhere where it can be seen by the public — here is a clip. so, you want your work in museums. museums are for the lack of a better word the gatekeepers of culture, to some extent. once you cross the threshold you are walking in and you're thinking, these are works that matter, not just for our generation but for future generations. so maybe things happen and i fall out of favour in a number of years, it will go into storage, but someday, maybe in 50 years, maybe in 70, maybe in 150, it could come out, it doesn'tjust vanish. what i know about art would not fill the back of a postage stamp
but i was really gripped by these debates about, how can you say that this painting is worth this much money and how is it that this has now become an investment strategy? if an artist isn't actually making the work of art, can they still put their name on it? and all the things put together in a way that i thought it was witty and fascinating and i came out of it thinking i knew more than i did when i went in but i was entertained throughout. speaking of entertainment, best out at the moment? yeah, they have reissued what was a brilliant film, 9 to 5. it still holds up and it has a very strong feminist message but it is funny and he has characters you can root for and i can't wait to go back and see it again in the cinema. yeah. and best dvd? this one is out on dvd and i was never a bros fan... i bet you were! hey, listen, i liked showaddywaddy so i have no shame in pop music!
but bros i never did. but this documentary made me really like them. it is part spinal tap, part sibling rivalry, and it is also a story of the fans got out of loving bros, it's very sympathetic, very funny and very, very funny and i thought it was touching. mark kermode, secret bros fan, even though he won't admit it! quick reminder before we go that you will find more film news and reviews across the bbc online and you can find all our previous programmes on the bbc iplayer. but that is it for this week, thank you so much for watching, goodbye from us. the week ahead sees the weather turned quite a bit colder over the
next few days. overnight tonight the clear skies we have at the moment are replaced by cloudy weather during the second half of the night, that cloud coming in over the north sea. it is thick enough to bring a few spots of rain to the eastern coasts. the clearest skies are out west, a sharp frost in the highlands. monday is a much cloudier day. it is at its thickest impasse of england where we will see some showers moving in, across east anglia, the midlands and southern counties of england. temperatures in single figures for most of us. it gets colder still for tuesday. gusts of around a0 or 50 miles an hour and it will feel quite bitter. still some outbreaks of rain coming along in lines. those temperatures are really struggling. this is bbc news, i'm lukwesa burak. the headlines at 11:00pm: the prime minister speaks of a crucial few days ahead, as she seeks to finalise her brexit
deal, and says a change of leader would only bring uncertainty. these next seven days are going to be critical. they are about the future of this country. it's about people's jobs, it's about their livelihoods, it's about the future for their children and grandchildren. the former wales rugby captain gareth thomas speaks out after suffering a homophobic attack in cardiff. there's a lot of people out there who want to hurt us, but u nfortu nately for who want to hurt us, but unfortunately for them, there's a lot more that want to help us heal. so this i hope will be a positive message. president trump says he won't listen to a tape of the journalist jamal khashoggi's murder, because the contents are too terrible. and at 11:30pm we will be taking an in—depth look at the papers
