sensible devolution on an appropriate geographical framework. will it work? ben is an apprentice. he's 20, and is training to become a highly skilled electronics engineer, an industry many hope will help power the region into recovery. he is less interested in who's in charge, but wants everyone to have the same opportunities. i don't think it matters who makes the decision, itjust needs to be the right decision. not everyone is as fortunate as myself and my colleagues, so i think widespread in different regions of the country so it can boost the nation together instead of just little segments of the country that are fortunate. that is the risk with decentralisation — that some areas might miss out. but the england that entered the covid—19 pandemic is probably not the england that will emerge from it. quite how it will look is still up for debate.

reeta chakra barti, bbc news, sheffield. it's the place where some of the world's most famous songs were recorded by the likes of queen, oasis and coldplay but, until now, the role of a welsh dairy farm in rock history has gone largely unnoticed. the rockfield studios in south—east wales were set up by two farming brothers, and a new film is telling their story, as our wales correspondent, hywel griffith, reports. we originally started, charles and i, up in the attics. kingsley ward is an unlikely rock legend. inspired by elvis 60 years ago, he started a band with his brother, charles. but when the london recording studios turned them down, they decided to build their own. two, three, four. the band didn't take off, but the studios did. as the new film telling rockfield's history sets out, by 1970, they'd recorded a number one. # i hear you knocking,
10:32 pm
but you can't come in. after that, the big names followed, including queen. lovely boys, by the way, all of them were. and they used to play frisbee in the yard, but they were followed by a band from canada called rush, which was a massive rock band and they were followed by iggy pop. and when iggy pop was here, david bowie turned up. and then, in 1980, simple minds turned up. there are little pieces of rock history everywhere you look. in here, for example, is where freddie mercury finished off bohemian rhapsody. on top of this wall, noel gallagher recorded the guitars to wonderwall. and coldplay were inspired to name one of their biggest songs here after spotting a copy of the phone book. # yeah, they were all yellow...# by the time we got to rockfield, it was, like, "this is your chance." we'd been given six months to get used to being signed and stuff and then our label were like, "look, you've got to kind of make it happen now." so it was very much kind of like some musical hogwarts. you know, we were sent
10:33 pm
away to figure it out. music: love spreads by the stone roses. some bands have spent longer than others doing just that. the stone roses lived here for 13 months making an album. 0asis have also made the most of life at the residential studio. as the new documentary shows, rockfield has seen its fair share of excess. i couldn't have carried them all over, anyway. there's too many. there should be queen in this one. yes, there is queen. and the woman who's kept generations of stars in line is ann, kingsley‘s wife and the studio's book—keeper. whenever there's a bit of a mess—up and someone's causing trouble, they say, "send for mother." so over i go, say, "right, now, i'm being your mum. "i want you to behave yourselves!" and things like that. you sort them out. and i sort them out, yes. lockdown has seen the studios fall silent for the first time in decades, but kingsley has no plans to retire or let

rockfield's history fade away. hywel griffith, bbc news. and you can watch rockfield: the studio on the farm on bbc four, bbc two wales and the iplayer this saturday night at 9:15pm. that's it. now on bbc one, time for the news where you are. have a very good night.

10:36 pm
welcome to bbc news. it's now time for us to look at the national and international front pages and the papers. hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. we're joined remotely by polly mckenzie, the chief executive of the cross—party think—tank demos, and the brexit commissioning editor of the telegraph, asa bennett. lovely to have you both with us tonight. so let's start with some of tomorrow's front pages. the telegraph says 0xford scientists believe they've made a breakthrough in their search for a covid—19 vaccine after discovering that the jab triggers a response
10:37 pm
that may offer a "double defence" against the virus. the metro goes with what it calls growing confusion over the need to wear masks in shops in england, with health secretary matt hancock and no.10 appearing to give conflicting advice. the international edition of the ft says eu judges have quashed a european commission order for apple to pay back 14.3 billion euros in taxes to ireland in a landmark ruling that hands a big legal victory to apple. the new york times says china and the united states are drifting towards a new cold war. it comes after the trump administration took new measures to suffocate chinese innovation by cutting it off from american technology and pushing allies to look elsewhere. the strait times says china and the united states are locked in an ugly showdown after us president donald trump revoked hong kong's special status and legislated sanctions, bringing further
10:38 pm
uncertainty to the region. and the guardian says the uk labour party is poised to make a formal apology to anti—semitism whistle—blowers as part of a settlement designed to draw a line under allegations made during thejeremy corbyn era. so, let's start off with our guests. lovely as always, polly and asa, to see you both. we start with the daily telegraph, which focuses on this vaccine. this is in particular, the oxford vaccine. it talking about this double... situation where it can provide antibodies and killer t cells, which sounds very dramatic. finally, talking and thus positively about something that we really need. yes, a few months ago, we were all
10:39 pm
amateur epidemiologists, and now we're trying to train ourselves as vaccine all adjust. both not really know —— knowing what we are talking about. t cells kill infected human cells, as well as antibodies, which target the viruses directly. if that works, that's obviously fantastic news as they go through these phase i trials of the vaccine. we know that there are other trials around the world that are also making progress. 0xford has been incredibly proud, it seems to be absolutely one of the most shining hopes. i think this is a bit of an emotional rosa quote —— roller coaster because it unpredictable, and just a few days ago, we heard that people's natural response to fades after a few months, suggesting that there might never be heard immunity in a vaccine
10:40 pm
might be hard. so it's kind of... does give us some hope. it separates monthly —— desperately needed. asa, this team has done it from an endlessly well because last year, it invented a similar vaccine for mers. this is certainly the guidance to watch. some hope, hopefully, a vaccine to come. absolutely. these are top—notch people. we know their full findings will be published next week, the 20th, i believe. i'm sure that will be studied regular sleep, because —— rigorously. those people have been speaking to the knowledge of the work, suggesting is obviously not a done deal yet, but indeed,
10:41 pm
there is good cause for hope. it's there is good cause for hope. it's the idea of a longer—term defence that can be there and actually try and build some sort of lasting protection. many other stories and other front pages pick up on this struggle, ministers having us get back to work, go out in the cities. when the strongest waves do that is when we know there's a vaccine. the vaccine or cure will be stronger than that. is absently crucial. certainly something to look out for. we will hear more of that over the weeks coming ahead. the new york times is focusing on what they are talking about a drift towards a cold war between the us and china. we're seeing this escalation of rhetoric, and also retaliation when it comes to the hong kong security laws. we've heard trump signed into
10:42 pm
laws. we've heard trump signed into law a bill to punish china and to end hong kong preferential treatment. this idea that the belief system between the us and china, really going on very different ways, potentially ending up in a cold war, a really worried situation. absolutely. the standard view for the last few desk aids —— two decades, because the two countries we re decades, because the two countries were interdependent, the us by so much from china and china buying so some a us bonds. itjust couldn't be a cold war, they had to find a way to manage their differences. 0bviously, president trump upset a lot of those assumptions, try to kind of start a trade war with china a few years ago. that then de—escalate a bit, but clearly, the
10:43 pm
coronavirus, having emerged from china, and there being such a desire from trump to punish them for that combined with the situation in hong kong does mean the escalation of arms, though obviously at the moment it's all economic arms, does feel very, very alarming. it's very hard to see what the way back might be. we've seen the us changing their sta nce we've seen the us changing their stance on huawei so much that the uk has had to change our stance for practical reasons, and that we can't do diligence on the product any more because the us would basically not allow us to get them. that's the cold war thing, where you have to ta ke cold war thing, where you have to take sides. you're not allowed to be independent within that bipolar system. it does certainly feel like they are heading in that direction. there's this class over technology, over influence, but also a cell, when we look at the image on the new
10:44 pm
york times, it it's the uss carrier —— asa. this is an image from this month. it's this pushback from the us over china's grab of territory in the south china sea that is really angering the ageing —— beijing. the south china sea that is really angering the ageing -- beijing. they are responding to the us show of strength. given that this is how donald trump wants to communicate with china, you see the chinese, trump's responded by revoking a special date is from hong kong, telling china that it no longer is a free market. so hong kong has to be... part of a beijing free market. so hong kong has to be... part ofa beijing block free market. so hong kong has to be... part of a beijing block now in their view. you can really see the chinese have responded by threatening all sorts, but where the
10:45 pm
storm. really the rhetoric is just between the ux and china, and the uk in the midst of this —— us and china. very much, we seen this decision to ban and push out huawei from its 56 infrastructure. it is very much using the us, that's a no contest for it. yes, and called the actions ofa for it. yes, and called the actions of a violation of international law. gross interference and china's internal affairs. . there's always been this challenge with china in that china's treatment of dissidents, whether muslim uighur minorities, the status of
