8:35 pm
is still in contention but what they any independent election observers for them and what have they saved. so far the african union because that's the regional book of west africa they have already declared that the voting process was transplanted something that has been disputed by the opposition in the. and you have to know that the opposition. himself has declared a winner even before the electoral commission announces the results so i dis moment though because of us said the election process was transpiring but the people in guinea contest narrative. ok fred just just coming back to these 2 men contending for this presidency and as you write so you told us it's the 3rd

time they're having a go at it. they've both got big profiles in guinea. the incumbent president alpha condé is he mold then and now the old man team to power. well that seems to be their part and especially in the west africa. region where currents are you see what is happening because they have had to change the constitution so that the incumbent president can run for a time then the same thing happens in guinea where he has actually been in power for one or 2 times for 10 years he is has forced to change the constitution so that he can run for another term but people have to know that this guy cannot be in the same basket as other people who have been in power for 2
8:37 pm
decades even for decades has just been in power for all of 2 times 10 yes' but then the change of the constitution itself raises questions about his motives and he's also is very questionable he's 82 years almost. afraid what about his main challenge at delhi india though he's no new come into political power is he. yes he's very very you know new has acquired in this so your poised and president. that he's some couple of years ago he has been also the prime minister he's very very experienced politician and he has also muster support from from the community which is really one of the biggest. it's in the group in so he has massive support he has experience but of course he is facing
8:38 pm
a very strong. incumbent president afraid when can we expect the final official results from this election. yet the final fissure results expected in 8 days that means that after the provision or results have been announced then the candidates have at least 8 days to file a petition in supreme court just in case they have they have problems they question the results and then the constitution the call it would declare the final results but if and the conduit gets 50 then there will be a 2nd a 2nd run which is should do it on to 4th of november right that's in lagos for us thank you frank. now it's been 10 years

culture streaming services are booming at the moment and historical series seem to be particularly popular now netflix is launching its 1st german historical series barbarians which takes place in na in a day when the romans occupied almost half of europe so the germanic tribes are trying to stop them occupied the other half lots of potential epic battles love and hate the trail and loyalty. so i mean how we got it in this agreement in pie at the height of its power half of it is under. roman general morris is governor of the northern provinces at his side. the leader of the division of jim monic troops serving the romans. and the. returning with room in forces meet his father a tribal chief again as a child i mean he is with taken as a host each to rome where he became

a roman citizen would come in the tightness. in. my 4. crisis act and now seize power now as we do situation of refugees today. i'm feeling it already i think refugees have to struggle with the same things that armenia struggled with not knowing how to fit in like where do i belong do i belong. how much of my original culture can i retain. that and how much is it accepted in the new culture and so on and on the fish story is told entirely from the perspective of the gemini tribes they resent the high tribute payments demanded by the romans the conflict is given an extra edge due to the language barrier the romans speaking latin. no matter what i was there no longer produce any sort of. you want more one up
8:47 pm
come on inside it's a touch of culture as they don't understand each other so we use this to develop the plot a few characters he speak both languages suddenly have much more power and control over the situation. there are misunderstandings. it was a key moment when we decided to incorporate this into the narrative. and start. adding to our many is internal conflict he is also the foster child of roman general virus an entirely fictional element. at the t.p. all those people who forget the last. reference to cup of tea leaves. the. judgement of the.
8:48 pm
roman for barbarian past the occupying forces become increasingly on many a switches sides and leads the romans into an ambush although the outcome of the battle is a matter of historical record barbarians keeps the tension going until the gury end . barbarians coming out of that 6 i drink out of a my colleagues. i did horrific spectator production because other productions are being very good. and a 6 part series does have a lot going for it to. david and goliath story setting the based on historical fact it was spectacularly shot in the toy forest have to say but actually on location in hungary it should appeal to fans of shows like vikings
8:49 pm
. and there's no reason why it shouldn't do very well indeed based on. an interesting chapter of german history what do we know about the real life germany tribes well there's an interesting exhibition on in at the james gallery in berlin at the moment called marlin which deals with misconceptions about them the german it tribe swer actually ethnically quite diverse. they were not barbarians but fairly advanced agricultural communities what we knew about them before your logy initially came from stories written by the romans and then further remand sized by german writers and artists particularly around the time of the foundation of the 1st german correction armenia's then becomes hermann the german a massive monument is built to him in the toy to forest 1900 years after the battle so was this a search for a sort of national identity battle let's fight but hermann is not ideally cast as
8:50 pm
the proton germany was no gun marnia he wasn't a unifier of germany that's the myth the were in all more than 50 tribes and therefore they were the forefathers of many european nations so a lot submissive misunderstandings but how historically authentic is this series it's pretty good it even has the roman soldiers speaking latin but it plays loose with facts but i have to say that there are only few verifiable facts here and there's a long tradition of inventing things to fill in the gaps in the knowledge so i think if you don't take it too seriously it won't do you any harm and you might enjoy it sounds very good and perhaps it'll inspire people to learn more about that part of german history barbarians is on netflix and the game martin is at the jane seymour gallery until until march 2020 ok. thank you very much.
