1:01 pm
has ousted the imprisoned carlos golan as chairman but is it a straightforward case of tax evasion or a coup to block a merger between new song and france's rayno. and important anniversary for lovers of pop music everywhere. you. are. exactly fifty years ago today the beatles released their white album some call of the best album after we'll find out how the fab four set about making it. i'm so me so much going to it's good to have you with us another step towards bragg's that european council president donald tusk says the e.u. and the british government have agreed on a declaration on the two sides relationship after the u.k. leaves the block. it comes
1:02 pm
a day after british prime minister theresa may and commission president jiang held talks on the declaration it will now be reviewed by representatives of the remaining twenty seven e.u. countries ahead of a summit this weekend that which you leaders hope to sign off on the declaration and on the braggs it treaty itself may is to make a statement to the house of commons a little bit later in the day. more details now with our correspondents barbara vessel is standing by in london garrick is in brussels all right garrick let's start with you so we hear that an agreement is in place on the future relationship between the u.k. and the block what do you hearing there so we have been taking a look at a leaked draft of the documents i'm sorry one pages and i've learned a few new vocabulary series the new relationship is described on page one as a bishop was brought deep and flexible and so it appears that this latest visit of three some may has brought her some you know hanging fruits will it be enough to
1:03 pm
sell back home that is a question i guess for for barbara what i can say from here is that it will now this document will now be passed on to the member states today it's been handed over to embezzle jurors to more of to the ship are you the people who will prepare the leaders' summit that is to come on the weekend or a barbara let's come to you there in london now and before we talk about whether troops are making get this through parliament you know this is the second piece of this very important process this document on the future relationship is this what theresa may want to to come away with you know what are the reactions there. it's a mixed picture because it does contain a bit that she could sell to the d u p or a northern ireland unionist party who is threatening to block the whole bricks and process because it does say in this future in this declaration that the dreaded.
1:04 pm
backstop for northern ireland could be replaced by a different solution if such a solution can be found and the responsibility for that of course to develop technology allies on britain but on the other hand it also contains some things that the reason may did not want for instance it refers to the future of fisheries policy and there is talk about access to waters and the division of quota that will of course a bit later in the day when more reactions come in get some people to sort of jump up and down and say see this is just what she had promised would not attempt and and so it is a very mixed bag for trees may she will of course try to sell it but whether it's sort of really increases her chances might be doubtful. let's come back to you now because barbara saying there it's a mixed bag but we do know the next step is going to be that there is a summit taking place on sunday is there anything that could still do rail these
1:05 pm
plants. i think barbara is bang on when she talks about them expect because from a european perspective twenty seven remaining e.u. countries it is a mixed bag as well and so today the spokesperson for the european commission pointed out two issues that are still sticking points and that is fishery as well for the europeans particularly for the dutch and the french and also for the spanish or the issue of gibraltar and so we'll have to see in the next hours to come basically how this will work out will there be green lights so that definitely the summit can take place if there are green lights and we look ahead barbara let's come back to you in london the question here is a theresa may says that this declaration sets out an ambitious broad deep and flexible partnership is this going to be enough to get through british parliament. well that's the first reaction soon we heard here was that one conservative breaks to tears said now this is the classic kill blindfold walking along
1:06 pm
a plank brick said that means we are buying into something that we don't know what it will be awarded means and of course it is in a sense he's right because this is a political declaration meaning nothing god good will in friendly words it's not legally binding and future governments can just turn their backs on it or interpret it in a way that will not suit the other side in this case britain so it is of course a blindfold sit in something similar was already heard from scotland because they're the first reactions where yes now we're being forced into this and we don't know how good the future for us will be and there is a great to dread before because of economic consequences or breaks it so it is very it will not really help a lot it might just give you a little push but it's not going to it's not a game changer it's not going to turn things around in parliament for her all right still

1:11 pm
move from remains from their current location near madrid to a more remote spot franco's followers and family members oppose the move and resistance is growing. it was the supporters of francisco franco singing cut out saws facing the sun the spanish fascists anthem. those gathered here want franco to be firmly anchored in the spanish national psyche as a man who brought prosperity to the country but more importantly they want franco's remains to stay here in a monumental mausoleum just north of madrid earlier this week on the anniversary of his death people came to pay tribute possibly for the last time. the current spanish government wants franco's remains removed and an end to his glorification. franco build the self aggrandizing structure for those who died in the spanish civil war standing over the so-called valley of the falling is a cross over one hundred fifty meters tall directly underneath that is the body of
1:12 pm
the dictator him self franco used forced labor to build it and among the thousands who work there was nicholas sanchez albert north in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight he painted some graffiti on a wall he wrote long live the free university and was arrested and forced to work in the valley of the fallen. and those of the prisoners those forced to do the work were farmed out to construction companies and i remember exactly for how much ten percent as per head. it's a monument build with forced labor and a site that has never really mentioned in spain. franco's remains have been here since nine hundred seventy five spain laid him to rest just like his dictatorship there was a pact of silence which helped the country transition to democracy now the governing social democrats want to move his burial place. but in spain there's
1:13 pm
a foundation dedicated to honoring the dictator there against the move. taking revenge on the dead that's cowardly to excavate them is a sign of hysteria and weakness in the form of forced labor and nicolas sanchez alba north has never been back to the valley he hopes that soon no one will be able to lay flowers here. franco supporters of course see it very differently. thanks to franco spaniards today have full bellies they have cars with air conditioning a second home in the countryside and in the summer they go to the beach we can thank franco that spain developed this way. spain's government doesn't want to see anymore franco france in the valley of the fallen but some thirty nine percent of spaniards want him to stay buried where he is along with this dictatorship forty one percent who are in favor of transferring him to a song that's not open to the public. you're watching news still to

come the board of car maker nissan sachs imprisoned carlos gonesse chairman according to japanese media but is it a straightforward case of tax evasion or a coup to thwart a fun merger between renault and nissan. but first today's an important anniversary for any fans of music it's exactly fifty years since the beatles released their white album. with songs like. black bird and while my guitar gently weeps there are the track record is seen as one of the greatest of all time it is back in the truck again in the u.s. and the u.k. thanks to a reissue edition released for the anniversary. we have mark s. that are with us now following the story for us hi mark what is made this white album so special so significant well it was something of a creative swerve for the beatles if you think about the album that directly
1:15 pm
preceded it sergeant pepper's lonely hearts club band notch mystery tool these were really vibrant colorful records and here we have the beatles it's called the beatles we ended up calling it the white house because of what it looks like is a minimal. white with the impulse to the name of the band on the front and the early copies were old number something of a piece but if you look at the path which was very tightly creatively controlled with an overarching cult of concept the white album was much more a kind of chaotic creativity a real. of styles you have the finger picking sort of folk artistry of black and continuing story of bungalow bill you have the sort of experimental god with the hand of yoko you know john lennon's new girlfriend play and some humorous songs like a deal that as we heard but also some quite heavy playing out rock songs as. does
1:16 pm
back in the u.s.s.r. which kicks the record off this helter skelter which is a real screamer of a track and also a revolution you know which i think are going to him now. say you want to read. you tell me that it seems. to change the world. you know like you're saying this album is something of a departure for the how does it fit into their story well that's a very interesting question i mean it came out in one thousand nine hundred sixty eight hopelessly it's a fiftieth celebration and at that time in history in european history there were
1:17 pm
fights on the streets there was revolution which is that code in that song but in the beatles story itself that was something of ructions and disenfranchised and i'm . upset the band were on the verge of splitting up on several occasions one point ringgold left the band and was rude back into the group by the other three who sent filled his hotel room with flowers to get him back into the studio yoko was on the scene john lennon's later wife she was sort of getting creatively involved george martin who would stay at all of the other records up until that point was taking something of a back seat sitting at the back of the studio reading the reading the newspaper and eating chocolate some of the amec dates have it and it was in the office of off the vessel jenin in india which inspired the songs dear prudence and sexy saidee but i think it's interesting from the beatles story because we get to see some of the real personalities that play in particular john lennon who with his song judea

which was to his mother who he lost when he was a young boy young child is disarmingly poetic amusing the opening line half of what i said. it is meaningless sums up his songwriting crofter to still an idea the same motional musical at the same time so this iconic white album is there a one track that really stands out to you well i really like julia but i think while my guitar gently weeps is an amazing song george harrison and he wrote a handful of songs for the beatles with their all great gems about song in itself is very interesting because it has eric clapton playing the lead guitar line on it he's uncredited on the record but he really does make the guitar cry and sing already because mark spinner for us thank you so much marc. just in sports is for you now in football a former shell see striker didier drogba has announced his retirement at the age of forty the ivorian one for premier league titles in the champions league in two
