President Trump keeps the world

waiting on the Iran nuclear deal.

0:00:090:00:13

Ahead is an important deadline

tomorrow and we still

0:00:130:00:15

don't know if he plans

to reimpose US sanctions.

0:00:150:00:22

Mr Trump is under pressure

from Europeans and his own national

0:00:220:00:25

security team to stick

with the nuclear deal.

0:00:250:00:27

He also faces pressure

from the Russia investigation

0:00:270:00:29

but insists, repeatedly

there was never any collusion.

0:00:290:00:31

Also on the programme...

0:00:340:00:35

Searching for survivors -

eight people are still missing

0:00:350:00:37

after the mudslides and flash floods

in southern California

0:00:370:00:39

that left 17 dead.

0:00:390:00:46

The New York Times was barred

from publishing any more classified

0:00:460:00:48

documents about the Vietnam war.

0:00:480:00:52

The Pentagon, a newspaper and power

- we sit down with Steven Spielberg

0:00:520:00:55

to hear about his

latest film, The Post.

0:01:000:01:04

Hello and welcome -

I'm Katty Kay in Washington

0:01:110:01:13

and Christian Fraser is in London.

0:01:130:01:15

The clock is ticking

and President Trump has just one day

0:01:150:01:17

to make an important decision

on the Iran deal.

0:01:170:01:20

The trouble is that even at this

late stage, no one knows

0:01:200:01:22

whether he's going to bring back US

sanctions against Tehran

0:01:220:01:25

tomorrow or not.

0:01:250:01:27

In a deliberate display of unity,

Britain, France, Germany

0:01:270:01:29

and the European Union today

all urged him not

0:01:290:01:31

to blow up the deal.

0:01:310:01:41

It's known as the JCPOA.

0:01:410:01:43

British foreign secretary

Boris Johnson went so far

0:01:430:01:45

as to challenge Mr Trump to prove

there was something better

0:01:450:01:47

than the current Iran deal.

0:01:470:01:48

The EU's foreign policy chief also

stressed that the deal is working

0:01:480:01:51

and Iran is in compliance.

0:01:510:01:54

The European Union remains committed

to support the full and effective

0:01:540:01:57

implementation of the agreement is,

including to make sure that the

0:01:570:02:01

lifting of nuclear related sanctions

has a positive impact on trade and

0:02:010:02:06

economic relations with Iran,

including benefits for the uranium

0:02:060:02:10

people. -- for the Iranians are

people. The agreement has allowed

0:02:100:02:16

for continuous dialogue with Iran on

all issues.

I don't think anybody

0:02:160:02:24

has so far produced a better

alternative to the JCPOA. As a way

0:02:240:02:30

of preventing the Iranians from

going ahead with the acquisition of

0:02:300:02:37

military nuclear capability. I don't

think anybody has come up with a

0:02:370:02:39

better idea. I think it is incumbent

on those who oppose the JCPOA to

0:02:390:02:45

come up with a better solution,

because we haven't seen it so far.

0:02:450:02:51

We know that it is absolutely

necessary to have the signal that it

0:02:510:02:55

is possible, by the dramatic

approaches, to prevent the

0:02:550:03:00

development of nuclear weapons, in a

time when other parts of the world

0:03:000:03:03

are discussing how to get nuclear

weapons, and it would send a very

0:03:030:03:10

dangerous signal to the rest of the

world if the only agreement which

0:03:100:03:14

prevents us from the proliferation

of nuclear weapons would be negative

0:03:140:03:22

effect. We very much agree on this

point.

They are all asking what

0:03:220:03:27

America is going to do.

0:03:270:03:28

And a brief time ago

we got reaction from

0:03:280:03:30

Democratic Senator Chris Coons,

who sits on the Foreign

0:03:300:03:32

Relations Committee.

0:03:320:03:34

What are the chances, realistically,

that the President is going to defy

0:03:340:03:37

all of the European expertise on

this, as well as his own national

0:03:370:03:42

security team, and actually reimpose

American sanctions on Iran?

That is

0:03:420:03:45

one of the challenges we face with

our President. When he was a

0:03:450:03:49

candidate, he promised he would be

unconventional and unpredictable. He

0:03:490:03:52

certainly outperformed in that Tata

Group, so far as President. I am

0:03:520:03:59

hopeful he will take seriously the

advice of his National Security

0:03:590:04:02

Adviser, his secretary of defence

and state, and the concerns and

0:04:020:04:05

interests of our vital European

allies, and that he will recertify

0:04:050:04:09

our continued participation in the

JCPOA. I am also hopeful he will

0:04:090:04:14

announce new sanctions on Iran that

we can impose on their ballistic

0:04:140:04:18

missile programme, on human rights

violations, or on their support for

0:04:180:04:22

terrorism in the region.

Boris

Johnson, the British Foreign

0:04:220:04:26

Secretary, has challenged the White

House to come up with something

0:04:260:04:28

better than the existing deal. Is

there something?

There is nothing we

0:04:280:04:33

are going to have enacted in the

next few days. We need to continue

0:04:330:04:37

this journey with our European

partners of constraining Iran's

0:04:370:04:41

nuclear weapon programme through the

JCPOA. But we can and should work

0:04:410:04:45

together to address some of the

future challenges we will face

0:04:450:04:48

because of sunsets in the JCPOA.

Some diplomats have suggested that

0:04:480:04:54

they are hearing that Iran is

seriously considering walking away

0:04:540:04:58

from this deal. If the President

reimpose sanctions, is that they

0:04:580:05:02

risk?

Yes, if he were to reimpose

nuclear related sanctions, they

0:05:020:05:06

would be justified in walking away

from JCPOA, because we would be

0:05:060:05:10

breaking one of the core principles

of the deal. If the President

0:05:100:05:14

imposes sanctions that are

specifically targeted at the

0:05:140:05:17

ballistic missile programme, for

example, that is clearly permitted

0:05:170:05:20

under the JCPOA and clearly

justified by Iran's ongoing

0:05:200:05:25

aggressive behaviour and violation

of UN Security Council resolutions.

0:05:250:05:29

You and your colleagues on the

foreign relations committee, your

0:05:290:05:35

Democrat colleagues, have gathered

evidence from European allies about

0:05:350:05:38

Russian interference in democracies.

You put out a report this week, 200

0:05:380:05:43

pages long, an extraordinary read.

You documented evidence of Russian

0:05:430:05:46

operations in 19 European countries.

That's right. A stunning moment in

0:05:460:05:53

our history as a nation. We have

such a clear and well documented

0:05:530:05:58

assault, not just on America's

democracy, but on the democracies

0:05:580:06:02

and the electoral systems of so many

of our allies across Europe and the

0:06:020:06:06

West in the democratic world. Our

President is failing to call this

0:06:060:06:11

clearly for what it is. And

organised Russian campaign of

0:06:110:06:13

aggression to undermine democracy.

He is failing to step up and prepare

0:06:130:06:19

the United States for its next

election, and to come to the aid and

0:06:190:06:22

support of vital allies in Europe,

as your elections continue to be

0:06:220:06:26

threatened and undermined by this

behaviour by Russia, it is

0:06:260:06:29

flabbergasting. It is a failure of

leadership to protect not just the

0:06:290:06:33

United States and our homeland, but

what makes us a democracy and our

0:06:330:06:36

vital allies.

What about the

investigations? You also sit on the

0:06:360:06:43

Judiciary Committee, the

intelligence committee and the house

0:06:430:06:46

intelligence committee, they all

have investigation is ongoing. You

0:06:460:06:48

came out of the Judiciary Committee

and you said you are at an impasse,

0:06:480:06:53

the politics is now getting in the

way of the investigations. Explain?

0:06:530:06:59

Unfortunately, the Republican

chairman of the Senate Judiciary

0:06:590:07:02

Committee has been trying to move

into a different direction, to

0:07:020:07:05

investigate different things, either

far past actions or actions somehow

0:07:050:07:09

related to Hillary Clinton and her

campaign, rather than working with

0:07:090:07:13

the minority leader and focusing on

supporting an ongoing investigation

0:07:130:07:18

into Russia's meddling and oversight

of the obstruction of justice

0:07:180:07:24

allegations, where the firing of

former FBI director Jim Comey is one

0:07:240:07:30

of the core issues. The Senate

Judiciary Committee is responsible

0:07:300:07:34

for the oversight of the American

Department of Justice and the

0:07:340:07:37

Federal bureau of investigation. It

is in our jurisdiction to bring in

0:07:370:07:43

witnesses, hold testimony. Sadly, on

a partisan basis, the investigation

0:07:430:07:46

has ground to a halt.

Thank you for

joining us.

0:07:460:07:53

If you are trying to bring North

Korea to the table, it sets a

0:07:540:07:58

dangerous precedent if you walk away

from a deal you have already signed

0:07:580:08:01

with Iran, particularly when you're

trying to get Korea to unilaterally

0:08:010:08:06

disarm. When you're trying to prop

up the moderates, there are

0:08:060:08:10

investors that want to go there, but

they are nervous. Every time we get

0:08:100:08:15

a rhetorical flourish from Trump,

they think, should we invest or

0:08:150:08:20

might we lose money? You have heard

there that they might be justified

0:08:200:08:25

to walk away from a deal?

I think

that is part of the reason why

0:08:250:08:29

people in Iran have been frustrated,

they say that they were promised so

0:08:290:08:32

much from the sanctions relief, it

did not come because there have not

0:08:320:08:35

been foreign investors. Iran is the

the reason that European diplomats

0:08:350:08:39

feel that they have to find a way to

work with this unusual

0:08:390:08:42

administration. I spoke to a top

European diplomat just this week

0:08:420:08:46

that was saying that we don't know,

so close to this deadline on the

0:08:460:08:50

sanctions waver, we just don't know

which way the White House is going

0:08:500:08:53

to go. That is a problem, when they

are trying to craft their own

0:08:530:08:57

policies. Iran is a huge factor in

America's relations with its

0:08:570:09:01

European allies at the moment.

0:09:010:09:05

As we have just heard Donald Trump

has repeatedly insisted

0:09:060:09:08

there was no collusion

between his campaign and Russia.

0:09:080:09:10

He accuses Democrats of carrying out

a witch hunt and suggests

0:09:100:09:13

Republicans should take charge

of the investigations.

0:09:130:09:15

He also says it is Hillary Clinton

who should be investigated not him.

0:09:150:09:18

At a press conference yesterday,

the President used the phrase

0:09:180:09:20

"no collusion" seven

times in just one answer.

0:09:200:09:29

There has been no collusion between

the Trump campaign and Russians, or

0:09:290:09:33

Trump and Russians. No collusion.

There is no pollution, there is no

0:09:330:09:37

collusion. There was absolutely no

pollution. But it has been

0:09:370:09:40

determined there is no pollution.

They have no collusion and nobody

0:09:400:09:44

has found any collusion.

No

collusion.

0:09:440:09:49

We can speak to the CEO of news Max.

Clearly, the President is frustrated

0:09:520:10:00

by this investigation. You speak to

Donald Trump on a regular basis.

0:10:000:10:03

What does he tell you about it and

what he feels about the

0:10:030:10:06

investigation?

He tells me there is

no collusion! I think he is exactly

0:10:060:10:15

right in that. You know, they say,

the President repeats himself a lot,

0:10:150:10:20

there must be something wrong in the

President, Donald Trump is a bit

0:10:200:10:26

theatrical. He has a theatrical

flair and he thinks that this is a

0:10:260:10:31

way of reinforcing his message. He

has been doing this for years where

0:10:310:10:34

he repeats himself. There is nothing

unusual. It is funny how I take it

0:10:340:10:39

as normal and somebody else says it

is strange that he keeps... He has a

0:10:390:10:43

mantra, no collusion, because this

President has been very cooperative,

0:10:430:10:49

I think a lot more cooperative than

I would ever advise them to be,

0:10:490:10:54

certainly any other President under

investigation, turning over

0:10:540:10:56

documents, not exerting executive

privilege, allowing key aides to be

0:10:560:11:06

interviewed, opening himself up to

questions, which I think he will be

0:11:060:11:09

answering soon. I was not involved

in the campaign, because I run

0:11:090:11:15

Newsmax and we are independent. I

have always been a friend of the

0:11:150:11:18

President, I know a lot of people

involved, and I don't think there is

0:11:180:11:21

any evidence whatsoever of collusion

between the Trump campaign and the

0:11:210:11:27

Russians.

You're right that it is

effective, we picked that up and ran

0:11:270:11:31

that for him several times in a row.

Does he feel that this

0:11:310:11:35

investigation, from Capitol Hill or

the FBI, is overshadowing his

0:11:350:11:38

presidency?

Yes, I think he thinks

it is being used as a blunt

0:11:380:11:45

instrument against him, and

certainly the media focus on it. You

0:11:450:11:51

go on certain networks, which I will

not name, cable news channels, all

0:11:510:11:54

they do is talk about this. What I

think is frustrating to him and his

0:11:540:11:58

close friends and supporters is they

have taken nothing and created it

0:11:580:12:03

into something. Let me give you an

example. If you look at this, this

0:12:030:12:09

whole story, there is no evidence

that there has been collusion with

0:12:090:12:16

the Russians. We have two

indictments and two plea agreements

0:12:160:12:21

from Robert Mueller, and there is no

evidence there. A lot of it starts

0:12:210:12:29

with the so-called dossier, which

comes to Britain, because all

0:12:290:12:32

hearsay, it was a a lot of garbage.

We have Ikea: going to

0:12:320:12:37

Czechoslovakia, to Prague, for a

secret meeting with the Russians,

0:12:370:12:40

and he testified he has never been

to Czechoslovakia and have no

0:12:400:12:47

dealings with this people. It was

just a lot of hearsay and gossip in

0:12:470:12:51

a report. To have a major

investigation come out of gossip, it

0:12:510:12:55

is very bizarre.

Of course, Chris,

if we believe what is in Michael

0:12:550:13:00

Wolff's group, Steve Bannon thinks

the meetings between Donald Junior

0:13:000:13:03

and the Russians was treasonous.

That aside, is it easier, with

0:13:030:13:10

Bannon out of the way, for the

President to reach across the aisle

0:13:100:13:13

and start to do some deals?

Well, I

disagree with Steve's treasonous, I

0:13:130:13:21

don't think was not the way the

meeting went down, but I think most

0:13:210:13:24

campaigns would have taken the

meeting in some shape or form. I

0:13:240:13:27

don't think it was treasonous. I

think Bannon was a weight on the

0:13:270:13:33

President and was preventing him

from moving to the centre. I believe

0:13:330:13:37

the President's success and

importance for the United States is

0:13:370:13:40

that he moved to the centre of

things like immigration,

0:13:400:13:45

infrastructure, education, even

national security issues. I think

0:13:450:13:47

the Donald Trump I have known, I met

him 20 years ago, will do that in

0:13:470:13:51

short order. We are seeing signs of

it. We are living through a very

0:13:510:13:56

polarising period here. But I think

he is the guy that can break

0:13:560:13:59

through.

When you say you have known

him for 20 years, do you think

0:13:590:14:04

sometimes he is conflicted in the

way that he has to appeal to his

0:14:040:14:11

base? Sometimes, I suspect that his

instincts are Democrat?

Well, I

0:14:110:14:19

think he is more of a centrist. When

I first knew him, he was a Democrat.

0:14:190:14:24

I would say a conservative business

Democrat, but a Democrat. He is a

0:14:240:14:30

unifying guy. He is not an

ideologue, that is the important

0:14:300:14:33

thing you have to know about Donald

Trump, Steve Bannon is and was an

0:14:330:14:38

ideologue. He is not rigid, he likes

getting deals done, he is very

0:14:380:14:43

pragmatic. He will look at an issue

and say, we need infrastructure, the

0:14:430:14:47

country needs this modernisation and

we need to be competitive around the

0:14:470:14:50

world, a conservative might say we

don't have the money, the Liberals

0:14:500:14:53

say that the project should go for

different things, Trump is more

0:14:530:14:57

about, let's get this done for the

good of the country.

Chris, when did

0:14:570:15:00

you last speak to the President and

what is his mood?

I saw him about

0:15:000:15:09

ten days ago, I guess, when he was

down in Florida. He was down here

0:15:090:15:15

for that period of time over the

holidays. He was happy, very

0:15:150:15:23

gregarious. He had just gotten the

tax bill through and he was looking

0:15:230:15:28

forward to... In fact, he told me he

thought he could do a lot of

0:15:280:15:32

bipartisan legislation this year and

that the Democrats, he thought, were

0:15:320:15:35

very open to working with him.

OK,

thank you very much for joining us,

0:15:350:15:41

always good to have you on the

programme, please come back again

0:15:410:15:43

soon.

Thank you so much.

0:15:430:15:48

It is nice and sunny in Florida,

always interesting to get his

0:15:490:15:53

thoughts, he is one of the people

that has been close to the President

0:15:530:15:55

for a long time. He downplayed it a

little bit, but I know he speaks to

0:15:550:15:59

him on a regular basis. You know, to

try to get a sense of how the

0:15:590:16:03

President is feeling, sometimes we

get the perception between the

0:16:030:16:07

Michael Wolff book, the tweets about

nuclear buttons, that there is a lot

0:16:070:16:10

of stress being pent up in the White

House. Interesting to see whether

0:16:100:16:14

that is being felt by his friends,

and the degree to which they will

0:16:140:16:18

tell us that.

The thing for me, he

talks about no collusion, I wonder

0:16:180:16:23

if Robert Mueller has moved past

that, he is looking at

0:16:230:16:27

money-laundering, he has two guilty

pleas, he is looking at obstruction

0:16:270:16:30

of justice, not just solely about

collusion. He has brought in a cyber

0:16:300:16:36

expert we have heard. You wonder how

ready Donald Trump to sit down with

0:16:360:16:40

Robert Mueller. He said he was 100%

ready to do it in summer, I am not

0:16:400:16:45

sure he is 100% now.

He kind of

urged that and so yesterday. -- he

0:16:450:16:53

kind of fudged that answer.

0:16:530:16:54

In California, rescue teams

are searching for eight people

0:16:540:16:56

who are still missing

after the flash floods

0:16:560:16:58

and mudslides on Tuesday.

0:16:580:16:59

17 people are known to have died

when a torrent of mud carrying

0:16:590:17:02

boulders the size of small cars

smashed through the

0:17:020:17:05

town of Montecito.

0:17:050:17:06

65 homes have been destroyed -

the area in Santa Barbara county

0:17:060:17:09

was only just recovering

from the recent

0:17:090:17:11

devastating wildfires.

0:17:110:17:12

Our correspondent

James Cook is there.

0:17:120:17:13

Turn around!

0:17:130:17:14

The flash flood is right there!

0:17:140:17:16

Get out of here, go!

0:17:160:17:17

This is the moment it began.

0:17:170:17:19

Oh, my God!

0:17:190:17:21

And then panic.

0:17:260:17:27

Close the door!

0:17:270:17:29

It was a million miles

an hour in slow motion,

0:17:310:17:34

if that makes sense.

0:17:340:17:35

I clicked in survival

gear, survival mode.

0:17:350:17:40

Every second, it is just roaring

and banging against the house

0:17:400:17:43

and the most vicious and violent

sounds you have ever heard.

0:17:430:17:51

Montecito has only just grasped

the scale of the disaster

0:17:510:17:53

which will bear its name.

0:17:530:18:01

For this idyllic little town

of just 9000 people,

0:18:010:18:04

recovery will be long and hard.

0:18:040:18:05

This was somebody's driveway.

0:18:050:18:06

There are three cars destroyed.

0:18:060:18:07

Buried inside that rubble.

0:18:110:18:12

Looking at this house,

it is difficult to believe anyone

0:18:120:18:14

on this street survived,

but many did and their

0:18:140:18:16

stories are remarkable.

0:18:170:18:22

People walked the dogs through here,

there are trails, my kids have grown

0:18:220:18:25

up riding their bikes.

0:18:250:18:26

Noelle fled with her three children

just before the storm.

0:18:260:18:28

But many of her neighbours did not.

0:18:280:18:31

Two young boys were swept

out of their home,

0:18:310:18:33

along with their mother.

0:18:330:18:34

In the middle of the night.

0:18:340:18:35

And the dog is gone.

0:18:350:18:36

And they are lucky to be fine.

0:18:360:18:38

It is like a war zone here.

0:18:380:18:40

There are homes that

are just missing.

0:18:400:18:45

And I walk down the street and I see

balls, and toys, and bicycles

0:18:450:18:48

and shoes and socks.

And knives and hammers.

0:18:480:18:55

It looks like people's lives

are just washed to the ocean.

0:18:550:18:58

Much of the wreckage ended up

clogging the main coastal motorway.

0:18:580:19:01

The mountains above are scarred

by rivers of debris.

0:19:010:19:03

Southern California was once famed

for its agreeable climate.

0:19:030:19:05

These days, it reels

from drought, fire and flood.

0:19:050:19:07

James Cook, BBC News, Montecito.

0:19:070:19:17

Steven Spielberg believes the Trump

administration is using the same

0:19:200:19:23

tactics as President Nixon used to

try to silence the press.

0:19:230:19:25

The Oscar-winning director

was speaking to our arts editor,

0:19:250:19:27

Will Gompertz, ahead of the release

of his latest film The Post,

0:19:270:19:30

starring Tom Hanks

and Meryl Streep.

0:19:300:19:35

This is a devastating security

breach that was leaked

0:19:350:19:37

out of the Pentagon.

0:19:370:19:38

Before the Watergate Scandal,

there were the Pentagon Papers.

0:19:380:19:41

The first expose a of a cover-up

in the Nixon government

0:19:410:19:44

by the Washington Post,

led by its legendary editor Ben

0:19:440:19:46

Bradlee and publisher Kay Graham.

0:19:460:19:48

Do you have the papers?

0:19:500:19:51

Set in 1971.

0:19:520:19:53

Yes.

0:19:530:19:54

But you have described

it as a timely movie.

0:19:540:19:57

Well, obviously if you flip the 1

and the 7, or the 7 and the 1,

0:19:570:20:03

you really get to see the great arc

of the pendulum that has brought us

0:20:030:20:08

right back to the same tactics

that Richard Nixon used

0:20:080:20:10

to try to silence the press.

0:20:100:20:15

I'm talking about the current

administration and their absolute

0:20:150:20:17

broadsiding of media,

social media, news,

0:20:170:20:19

anybody that offends.

0:20:190:20:27

You know, there is a label

that is immediately attached

0:20:270:20:29

to them, well, that can't be true,

because they're all fake news.

0:20:290:20:33

I mean, it's a lot more

insidious today, by the way,

0:20:330:20:36

than it was in 1971.

0:20:360:20:37

If you publish, we'll be

in the Supreme Court next week.

0:20:380:20:40

Meaning?

0:20:400:20:42

We could all go to prison.

0:20:420:20:45

There's been another massive press

expose the last six months,

0:20:450:20:48

it looks like the endemic sexual

harassment and exploitation

0:20:480:20:51

of women in Hollywood.

0:20:510:20:56

I mean, you're a really senior

figure in Hollywood and you've

0:20:560:20:59

been around a long time.

0:20:590:21:01

Do you ever think, you know

what, I think I could

0:21:010:21:04

have done a bit more to stop this?

0:21:040:21:06

Well, you know, I can only basically

react to that question

0:21:060:21:09

within my own workplace environment.

0:21:090:21:13

Within my organisation,

there weren't incidences,

0:21:130:21:16

except for a couple of years

and years ago, that I would say

0:21:160:21:19

gave me the experiences

to be the authority

0:21:190:21:21

on that question you ask.

0:21:210:21:22

What happened in those incidences?

0:21:220:21:25

Just a couple of incidences, I don't

want to go into detail on them,

0:21:250:21:28

but they happened years and years

ago, where we had

0:21:280:21:30

to let somebody go.

0:21:300:21:33

People are concerned about having

a woman in charge of the paper.

0:21:330:21:36

Think she doesn't have the resolve

to make the tough choices.

0:21:360:21:38

Thank you for your frankness.

0:21:380:21:43

My prediction is that this

watershed moment for women,

0:21:430:21:46

in extolling the courage of women

who, like Katherine Graham,

0:21:460:21:48

with the Pentagon Papers,

with her decision to publish or not

0:21:480:21:51

to publish, so many women have

found their voices and they have

0:21:510:21:54

been given so much support.

0:21:540:21:58

Not just by other women,

but also by certain men.

0:21:580:22:02

I think this is not just

another news cycle.

0:22:020:22:05

I think this is a permanent

change in the culture.

0:22:050:22:09

Maybe.

0:22:090:22:11

But as Kay Graham showed

with her courageous leadership

0:22:110:22:13

of the Washington Post,

exposing deeply rooted corrupt

0:22:130:22:15

behaviour is one thing -

changing it is quite another.

0:22:150:22:17

Will Gompertz, BBC News.

0:22:170:22:25

I can't wait to see that movie. Have

you seen it?

Not yet, looking

0:22:250:22:29

forward to it.

Apparently it is

really good, she is meant to be

0:22:290:22:35

great as Kay Graham.

0:22:350:22:37

We've talked this week about

the buzz surrounding Oprah Winfrey -

0:22:370:22:39

I think it's Christian's favourite

story - and whether she's planning

0:22:390:22:42

to run for President after giving

a rousing speech at the Golden

0:22:420:22:45

Globes.

0:22:450:22:46

Well she got a bit

more backing today.

0:22:460:22:48

In an interview with the BBC's

Andrew Marr Show, both Meryl Streep

0:22:480:22:51

and Tom Hanks were asked

whether they thought

0:22:510:22:53

Oprah Winfrey is running -

here's their glowing endorsement.

0:22:530:22:58

Well, I don't know if she was

thinking that specifically, although

0:22:580:23:02

I do here now that she is really

considering it. But she certainly

0:23:020:23:09

set the bar pretty high for anybody

else that decides to run, because no

0:23:090:23:12

one can speak in less lofty terms

and adhere to principle and passion

0:23:120:23:24

in a legal campaign, because we have

seen it as possible. That is how you

0:23:240:23:28

rouse people. That was the voice of

a leader. You know, I pity whoever

0:23:280:23:33

does try to run.

I believe Oprah is

some other kind of social force, one

0:23:330:23:40

of the kind that has never existed

before, quite attractive. I believe

0:23:400:23:42

she wakes up in the morning, both

personally and professionally,

0:23:420:23:46

wonders what she can do,

specifically, in order to make the

0:23:460:23:49

world a better place. Maybe it is a

very local event, maybe it is going

0:23:490:23:53

out and giving voice to something

that needs to be given voice to. We

0:23:530:23:58

had proven, I think, in the last few

years, that if you want to be

0:23:580:24:02

President of the United States,

guess what, there is a way that can

0:24:020:24:05

happen, because...

That is one thing

Trump has shown.

Indeed.

Here is

0:24:050:24:11

where I see the problem for Oprah

Winfrey. When we talk about Donald

0:24:110:24:15

Trump, there is a tweet for every

occasion, you can go back to 2009,

0:24:150:24:19

and find one to fit the occasion.

Imagine if you did that with Oprah

0:24:190:24:23

Winfrey. She has been a chat show

host for 25 years. People could go

0:24:230:24:27

back and find out her thoughts on

everything, right across the social

0:24:270:24:31

spectrum. How would she survived

that sort of scrutiny?

I have two

0:24:310:24:36

words for you, Access Hollywood.

Donald Trump survived revelations we

0:24:360:24:43

never thought he would do. We

thought his campaign was totally

0:24:430:24:46

sunk by those comments he made about

women on tape. And he is now

0:24:460:24:51

President of the United States. Here

is the interesting thing for me,

0:24:510:24:55

watching two liberal media stars,

Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep saying it

0:24:550:24:58

would be great if she won, she has

set the bar high. Those are the same

0:24:580:25:03

people who said Donald Trump should

never run for office, he has no

0:25:030:25:06

experience, does not know how to be

President and has never been elected

0:25:060:25:09

to anything. If they apply that

standard to Donald Trump, I am not

0:25:090:25:13

sure how they can't apply it to

Oprah Winfrey, which I think is the

0:25:130:25:21

fear of some Democrats, that this

builds momentum and she is not

0:25:210:25:23

qualified, that she cannot make it

to the election process.

2020 is so

0:25:230:25:26

far away, isn't it?

It will come in

a nanosecond!

Who will come out of

0:25:260:25:35

the Democrat would work? The one

thing in her favour is that she has

0:25:350:25:38

the star factor, something the

Democrats are desperately looking

0:25:380:25:40

for.

0:25:400:25:42

This is Beyond 100

Days from the BBC.

0:25:440:25:46

Coming up for viewers on the BBC

News Channel and BBC World News -

0:25:460:25:49

why countries around the world

are lining up to condemn Myanmar

0:25:490:25:52

over the arrest of two journalists

who the government wants to charge

0:25:520:25:54

with breaking the

Official Secrets Act.

0:25:540:25:56

And a freedom of speech issue

or a question of tone?

0:25:560:25:59

The online vlogger who's fallen out

of favour with YouTube

0:25:590:26:01

after posting the body

of a suicide victim.

0:26:010:26:03

That's still to come.

0:26:030:26:06

Hello. If the truth were known, it

has been something of a mishmash of

0:26:120:26:16

a day across the British Isles, at

its very best. There was pledge of

0:26:160:26:20

sunshine on offer in Wales and spots

elsewhere. The truth of the matter

0:26:200:26:26

is that there was a lot of clout to

be had and some mist and fog

0:26:260:26:30

lingered through the course of the

day. One of those lead in January

0:26:300:26:34

days. There you can see on the

satellite imagery that there were

0:26:340:26:36

some decent islands of sunshine.

Through the evening and overnight,

0:26:360:26:40

we will find that the cloud will

part in one or two locations, and

0:26:400:26:45

that will lead to some fog, a death

like we had last night. Where the

0:26:450:26:51

skies stay clear, particularly so in

the West, there could be a touch of

0:26:510:26:55

frost around proceedings and

especially so in the countryside,

0:26:550:26:58

just that fraction milder towards

the east. Friday morning, I think

0:26:580:27:02

there are no great issues with fog

across the north-western quarter of

0:27:020:27:05

Scotland. As soon as you drift a

little further east down into the

0:27:050:27:10

Borders, there could be a little bit

of an issue. Northern Ireland, not

0:27:100:27:13

such an issue. If there was any fog

overnight, I think it will be blown

0:27:130:27:17

away, the commute of the morning.

Quite a chilly start across western

0:27:170:27:21

parts. I think this is where we will

see the densest of the fog, through

0:27:210:27:26

the East, East Anglia, parts of the

south-east, I don't think it will be

0:27:260:27:30

much of an issue. A lot of cloud and

dry whether to be had on Friday. The

0:27:300:27:34

best of the sunshine through western

parts, cross high ground as well,

0:27:340:27:38

helping to break up some of the

cloud. Again, it will be Aprilia

0:27:380:27:41

leaden sort of day. Friday into

Saturday, we freshen up those winds,

0:27:410:27:48

which will help with the fog

situation we have had over the last

0:27:480:27:52

couple of nights. It is freshening

up, the wind, head of a said of

0:27:520:27:58

weather fronts, bringing a wet day

into Northern Ireland. Gradually

0:27:580:28:04

easing further east, the weather

front, taking the prospect of rain

0:28:040:28:07

into western Scotland, western

England, through Wales. Dry

0:28:070:28:11

conditions to finish the day in

Northern Ireland. From Saturday into

0:28:110:28:14

Sunday, join the dots, that is the

old weather front. A new one showing

0:28:140:28:18

at hand across the western quarter

of the British Isles. Not the

0:28:180:28:22

coldest days by any means at all.

Make the most of it because once the

0:28:220:28:26

weather front comes through during

the course of Monday, the rest of

0:28:260:28:29

the week is much colder and a tad

more wintry.

0:28:290:28:35

This is Beyond 100 Days,

with me Katty Kay in Washington -

0:30:060:30:09

Christian Fraser's in London.

0:30:090:30:10

Our top stories -

0:30:100:30:12

European powers call

on President Trump to uphold a deal

0:30:120:30:15

on Iran's nuclear programme -

struck by his predecessor

0:30:150:30:17

Barack Obama in 2015.

0:30:170:30:26

When he was a candidate he promised

that he would be unconventional and

0:30:260:30:31

unpredictable. He

0:30:310:30:32

that he would be unconventional and

unpredictable. He certainly

0:30:320:30:33

outperformed in that category so far

as president.

0:30:330:30:36

Some incredible pictures to share

with you from California,

0:30:360:30:39

the moment a car was caught

in the devastating mudslides

0:30:390:30:41

which have killed 17 people -

eight others are still missing.

0:30:410:30:44

Coming up in the next half hour -

0:30:440:30:47

He was the Brexiteer-in-chief,

so why is Nigel Farage

0:30:470:30:52

warming to the idea

of another EU referendum?

0:30:520:30:57

And raiding the Ritz -

two robbers remain on the run

0:30:570:31:00

after stealing millions of dollars

worth of jewels, from

0:31:000:31:03

the glitzy hotel in Paris.

0:31:030:31:03

Let us know your thoughts

by using the hashtag.

0:31:030:31:05

'Beyond-One-Hundred-Days'.

0:31:050:31:08

Earlier this week we had

Nigel Farage on the programme,

0:31:140:31:19

the Brexiteer in chief,

talking about his trip to Brussels

0:31:190:31:21

and his meeting with the EU chief

negotiator Michel Barnier.

0:31:210:31:24

Today Mr Farage said he is close

to backing a second EU referendum

0:31:240:31:27

in order to end the "whinging

and whining" of

0:31:270:31:29

anti-Brexit campaigners.

0:31:290:31:30

It's probably the first time

the former UK Independence Party

0:31:300:31:32

leader and the Pro-EU campaigners

have seen eye to eye.

0:31:320:31:35

"Bring it on" said

the Remainers today.

0:31:350:31:45

Maybe, just maybe, I've reached a

point in thinking that we should

0:31:470:31:51

have a second referendum...

On what?

On EU membership.

The whole thing?

0:31:510:31:57

Of course!

0:31:570:32:00

Let's bring in our chief political

correspondent Vicki Young

0:32:000:32:02

who's in Westminster.

0:32:020:32:03

He's been doing his radio programme

on LBC radio this evening, he said

0:32:030:32:08

he was meeting Michel Barnier on

Monday, and he is now convinced that

0:32:080:32:14

Michel Barnier will not "Give us a

good deal". I'm saying this to

0:32:140:32:18

Leavers, do not be complacent.

He is

elaborating on comments he made

0:32:180:32:23

earlier. There has been a backlash

for Nigel Farage, the man getting

0:32:230:32:28

that referendum and who has long

advocated the UK's departure from

0:32:280:32:33

the EU, suggesting that he welcomed

a second referendum. A lot of

0:32:330:32:38

leading Brexiteers have said that is

the wrong thing to do, even members

0:32:380:32:41

of Ukip, of which Nigel Farage the

former leader is still a member of,

0:32:410:32:47

they say that is not part of the

policy. On his radio programme

0:32:470:32:52

tonight, he has said that he does

not want there to be a second

0:32:520:32:55

referendum but after his meeting

with Michel Barnier, as you say, he

0:32:550:32:59

came away thinking that UK wasn't

going to get a good deal and in that

0:32:590:33:03

eventuality he thought the British

parliament would say rather than

0:33:030:33:08

walk away from the EU that there

should be a second vote. He suggests

0:33:080:33:14

that Leavers, those who want the UK

to depart from the EU should not be

0:33:140:33:21

complacent but gear up for the

possibility of another referendum,

0:33:210:33:24

he said that there could be another

dramatic battle go to come.

Alex,

0:33:240:33:28

talk about political odd couples,

this puts Labour Nigel Farage in the

0:33:280:33:33

same bracket with Remainer, Tony

Blair. I cannot believe either of

0:33:330:33:38

them have a lot of time for one

another but they seem convinced if

0:33:380:33:42

there was a second referendum that

their side would win?

That is what

0:33:420:33:47

is interesting about this, not just

Tony Blair but other Labour MPs,

0:33:470:33:51

Liberal Democrats in the UK say that

they welcomed the idea of another

0:33:510:33:55

referendum. Looking at opinion

polls, broadly speaking they are not

0:33:550:33:59

clear, it depends on the question

they are asked. You can summarise

0:33:590:34:04

that there has been a shift towards

people wanting to get on with

0:34:040:34:09

Brexit, including people who wanted

the UK to remain before. There a

0:34:090:34:16

rise in the number of people who

thought the outcome of the

0:34:160:34:23

referendum was wrong. We don't know

the result but as you say both sides

0:34:230:34:26

are convinced that their side would

win if it were to be rerun and a

0:34:260:34:31

strange combination of Nigel Farage,

cheap Brexiteer, the bedfellow of

0:34:310:34:35

some hard remainders, albeit with

others for different reasons.

There

0:34:350:34:43

was Nigel Farage on his radio

programme saying that he wanted to

0:34:430:34:46

send Tony Blair into outer space,

this would decide it once and for

0:34:460:34:49

all. But if there were to be a

second referendum, he's proposing

0:34:490:34:56

the same as before, but if it goes

the other way, would this be the

0:34:560:34:59

best-of-3?

Brexiteers would say that

it was close last time, let's have a

0:34:590:35:07

best-of-5.

Like kids playing Rock

paper scissors? What is interesting,

0:35:070:35:18

Arron Banks, one of the finances

behind the league campaign, he is

0:35:180:35:23

also behind the idea of having a

second referendum, he said that Tony

0:35:230:35:28

Blair and the likes of Lord Adonis

and Nick Clegg, all of the Remainers

0:35:280:35:35

out in force in the last few

weeks... You have to wonder what

0:35:350:35:38

they make of this in Brussels! It

does not really play to their

0:35:380:35:42

chances of getting a good deal if

everyone is talking about a second

0:35:420:35:46

referendum but that's another

debate!

0:35:460:35:52

President Trump's national security

team is reportedly advising him not

0:35:520:35:54

to re-impose US sanctions on Iran.

0:35:540:35:55

The European partners to the nuclear

deal came together in Brussels today

0:35:550:35:58

to urge the President to maintain

the waiver on sanctions.

0:35:580:36:01

But what if he doesn't?

0:36:010:36:03

A short while ago he was asked on

this.

Thank you.

On Iran...

You will

0:36:030:36:13

be finding out soon. Thank you.

Finding out very soon, he likes to

0:36:130:36:19

keep us on tenterhooks!

0:36:190:36:20

Karim Sadjapour is an Iran expert

with the Carnegie Endowment.

0:36:200:36:24

I spoke to him a short while ago.

Why is President Trump prevaricating

0:36:240:36:29

over the sanctions and the waiver?

He made it clear he hates the deal

0:36:290:36:33

and he wants to rip it up? That's

right, he's always been sceptical of

0:36:330:36:39

the deal, he called it the worst

deal in history. The other thing

0:36:390:36:44

about President Trump is that he is

sceptical of what he calls "Expert

0:36:440:36:50

opinion and conventional wisdom". He

likes to think he's thought of these

0:36:500:36:53

on a few occasions and the blowback

hasn't been what people expected but

0:36:530:36:58

in this case, almost all of his

senior national security advisers

0:36:580:37:05

have advised him not to blow up the

nuclear deal. In some ways, he is

0:37:050:37:10

doing this against his own instincts

quite reluctantly.

If the sanctions

0:37:100:37:15

were reimposed, would it indeed blow

up the deal?

If you sanction around

0:37:150:37:21

because you say they are not in

compliance with the nuclear deal,

0:37:210:37:25

which according to them, they are

still in compliance, that would be

0:37:250:37:33

because the US has reneged on its

end of the deal and therefore it

0:37:330:37:38

will reconstitute nuclear

activities. Therefore, nuclear

0:37:380:37:43

related sanctions against Iran could

unravel the nuclear deal.

You phrase

0:37:430:37:48

it interestingly, the president,

basically, the problem is America

0:37:480:37:55

faces a choice where if it isolates

Iran further, you drive it in the

0:37:550:38:00

direction of North Korea and then it

becomes more like South Korea,

0:38:000:38:05

embracing it and engaging it, is

that message getting through to the

0:38:050:38:08

White House?

It's a very compact

challenge for the White House and

0:38:080:38:15

the US Congress, in that, again, if

you want to present agriculture

0:38:150:38:21

event the regime that has required

economic isolation, the US

0:38:210:38:26

government has done that well

against Iran but if you try and help

0:38:260:38:31

Iranians society become like South

Korea it requires more political and

0:38:310:38:35

economic reintegration and in some

ways, these policies are at

0:38:350:38:38

loggerheads, they contradict one

another and I would argue that the

0:38:380:38:44

nuclear deal is one way of checking

both boxes. The deal keeps Iran

0:38:440:38:51

tethered to its nuclear obligations,

to greater transparency. But at the

0:38:510:38:55

same time, it helps Iran's economy,

certainly not reintegrate with the

0:38:550:39:02

United States but with other parts

of the world that are interested in

0:39:020:39:06

doing business with Iran, whether it

is Europe or Asia.

And briefly, what

0:39:060:39:11

about the recent riots playing into

the US's calculations?

He feels that

0:39:110:39:19

a time when the Iranian regime is

using overwhelming force to harm

0:39:190:39:25

citizens aspirations for a greater

economy and more pluralism, why

0:39:250:39:29

should we be agreeing to economic

sanctions and lifting economic

0:39:290:39:33

sanctions against Iran which simply

provide the regime with more

0:39:330:39:38

resources to be oppressive?

OK,

thank you.

0:39:380:39:43

Myanmar is in the spotlight again

after sentencing two Reuters

0:39:430:39:45

journalists to prison for 14 years.

0:39:450:39:47

The pair were charged

with offences under

0:39:470:39:49

the Official Secrets Act in Myanmar.

0:39:490:39:49

Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo

were arrested last month

0:39:520:39:54

after meeting police.

0:39:540:39:59

They were covering the situation

in Rakhine state where more

0:39:590:40:02

'S

0:40:020:40:02

than half a million Muslims have

fled a deadly military crackdown.

0:40:020:40:04

Steven Butler is the Asia programme

coordinator for the Committee

0:40:040:40:07

to Protect Journalists

and joins me now.

0:40:070:40:12

thank you for coming in. What more

do we know on the circumstances of

0:40:120:40:16

these journalists, how they are

being held and what they are accused

0:40:160:40:20

of doing?

They are accused of

holding documents the government

0:40:200:40:24

deems to be secret. They are being

held in prison and so far as we know

0:40:240:40:28

they've not been mistreated, they've

told their families that and their

0:40:280:40:31

lawyer. They should be out of jail,

they shouldn't be in there in the

0:40:310:40:35

first place.

That 14 year sentence,

it's fixed,

0:40:350:40:48

could it be lifted?

They haven't

been sentenced, they've been charged

0:40:480:40:51

under the official secrets act and

if they are convicted they face

0:40:510:40:53

potentially 14 years in prison. We

don't know what will happen. There's

0:40:530:40:55

another hearing on the 23rd, the

lawyers have asked for bail and the

0:40:550:40:58

trial is yet to take place.

The aim

is to intimidate foreign press, or

0:40:580:41:01

the press more generally?

Yes, to

prevent journalists from covering

0:41:010:41:06

the tragedy unfolding in the racking

state with the range of people.

And

0:41:060:41:11

you have suggested that there is

some evidence that perhaps this was

0:41:110:41:16

a setup?

Absolutely, if you look at

what they told their families, they

0:41:160:41:21

were invited to meet police and

given documents before they left,

0:41:210:41:24

told that they could read the

documents when they arrived home but

0:41:240:41:28

immediately as soon as they left

they were arrested. With the

0:41:280:41:33

documents that form the basis of the

charges.

It is always tricky, in

0:41:330:41:41

this situation, do you speak out

publicly or do interviews? What's

0:41:410:41:45

the best way to operate? You want to

do the best for those in custody?

I

0:41:450:41:57

think first of all, you provide them

with legal help, that is happening

0:41:570:42:02

and secondly, you work with other

organisations like the committee to

0:42:020:42:06

protect journalists and other

groups, mobilising governments to

0:42:060:42:09

put pressure on the Myanmar regime.

That is happening, there's a

0:42:090:42:16

unanimous voice. That this is

unfair.

How far can bemoan my

0:42:160:42:21

government to sustain that kind of

international opprobrium at the

0:42:210:42:28

moment? Wouldn't it add to

condemnation?

We don't know the

0:42:280:42:32

answer to that, we have seen Myanmar

had a military role and survived for

0:42:320:42:38

decades from this kind of pressure.

You have to wonder, perhaps they are

0:42:380:42:43

getting ready to face that again? We

don't know the answer but I do think

0:42:430:42:47

the international pressure is the

only realistic tool in their arsenal

0:42:470:42:54

to make changes there.

Steven

Butler, thank you. Thank you for

0:42:540:42:59

coming in. Our thoughts go to those

two journalists in Myanmar facing

0:42:590:43:02

these long prison sentences. The

crackdown on journalism around the

0:43:020:43:08

world, press freedom is under threat

in countries like Myanmar, where

0:43:080:43:12

there is a lot of political

pressure. They do have writers

0:43:120:43:16

behind them and that puts them in a

slightly stronger position. Reuters

0:43:160:43:20

can rally attention and legal

resources, there are many

0:43:200:43:23

journalists who are freelancers

without that kind of backing.

It

0:43:230:43:27

does make a difference, I have been

there. I used to be a correspondence

0:43:270:43:32

in Cairo and I was once arrested

near the border near Gaza. We were

0:43:320:43:36

in prison for most of the day and

you think, this will be all right...

0:43:360:43:42

Then that is part of you that

thinks, maybe it won't? But it

0:43:420:43:46

certainly helps, when the BBC is

involved and the BBC's name around

0:43:460:43:50

the world. I'm sure that's the case

for Reuters. Those charges they are

0:43:500:43:55

facing and the sentence, in actual

fact, the law they are operating on

0:43:550:43:59

is British law. A secret law that

Britain implemented in the country

0:43:590:44:05

back in the 1920s when it was Burma.

Let's hope that they are free soon

0:44:050:44:11

and can go back to their families.

Let's stay in the country.

0:44:110:44:15

Well, still in the country

and the Myanmar military has

0:44:150:44:18

admitted for the first time

to killing a group of ten Rohingya

0:44:180:44:20

men in Rakhine State

and dumping their bodies

0:44:200:44:22

in a mass grave.

0:44:220:44:23

The incident took place

in the village of Inn Din.

0:44:230:44:26

The army says it was in

the region to fight Rohingya

0:44:260:44:28

militants known as ARSA.

0:44:280:44:33

This satellite image

here shows what remains

0:44:330:44:35

of Inn Din after clashes

with the security forces.

0:44:350:44:37

To give you a sense of the scale

of destruction, this picture shows

0:44:370:44:40

the village before the clashes.

0:44:400:44:41

The ten men found in the mass

grave - had been arrested

0:44:410:44:44

as suspected members of ARSA.

0:44:440:44:45

The army said they didn't have

trucks to transport them

0:44:450:44:48

to the police station -

so they executed them on the spot.

0:44:480:44:55

Certainly we need journalists in the

country.

to the country by "burning

cars and politicians".

there were 'no-go areas'

in the Netherlands.

0:45:510:45:53

Police in France are hunting for two

men who stole millions of euros

worth of jewels in a smash and grab

raid on the Ritz hotel in Paris.

0:46:120:46:16

Some of the jewellery but not

all of it has been recovered.

0:46:160:46:18

The armed gang -

five of them in all -

0:46:180:46:21

burst into the Ritz on Wednesday

evening and smashed the display

0:46:210:46:24

windows of jewellery

shops in the hotel.

0:46:240:46:25

Three of them were arrested

immediately - two others

0:46:250:46:27

are still on the run.

A large police response outside

the Paris Ritz after a gang,

It isn't just the Christmas

lights that sparkle here.

0:46:400:46:42

There are jewels on display to match

the wealth of the guests

0:46:420:46:45

at one of the world's

most exclusive hotels.

0:46:450:46:50

The robbers arrived in Place Vendome

on scooters at around six

0:46:500:46:58

in the evening local time,

smashing windows on the ground

0:46:580:47:00

floor of the hotel.

0:47:000:47:04

It is estimated they took jewels

worth 4 million euros.

0:47:040:47:07

But police officers interrupted

the raid and arrested

0:47:070:47:09

three of the five men.

0:47:090:47:14

Paris has seen this before.

0:47:140:47:16

of her jewellery.

0:47:220:47:23

Only one piece was ever seen again.

0:47:230:47:28

It is not clear how much

was recovered from this latest raid.

0:47:280:47:31

Theresa May has pledged to improve

Britain's environment but how

0:48:020:48:05

practical is it a they without

plastic? They tried to do that in

0:48:050:48:10

Penzance, Cornwall, as John Kay has

been finding out...

0:48:100:48:14

A rubbish day at Saint Hilary

school...

Who has straws in their

0:48:140:48:20

drinks?

A lesson in pollution and

waste. If Theresa May wants to reach

0:48:200:48:24

out to the young with her green

strategy, these kids would be 30

0:48:240:48:28

years old at the end of her 25 year

plan... Here in Penzance, they are

0:48:280:48:35

trying to be Britain's first plastic

Freetown. -- free town. They are

0:48:350:48:42

making some progress. Businesses

like this cafe have signed up and it

0:48:420:48:46

is backed by the council... But at

the local supermarket, the challenge

0:48:460:48:51

is clear.

Some apples wrapped in

plastic...

John likes the

0:48:510:48:57

government's new strategy but

wonders if it will make much

0:48:570:48:59

difference.

Plastic, plastic,

plastic... You can't get away from

0:48:590:49:09

it.

Most shoppers told us that they

would try plastic free aisles, but

0:49:090:49:14

some, like Roxanne, worried that it

may not be practical.

It might not

0:49:140:49:18

be the most hygienic route to go

down, maybe? Having the meat next to

0:49:180:49:23

the eggs or the cheese, for example?

This is why people around here are

0:49:230:49:28

so concerned about the long-term

impact of plastic.

Found on a local

0:49:280:49:33

beach, recently, a lollipop stick

from when I was growing up in the

0:49:330:49:37

1970s. It hasn't broken down at all.

And a packet of peanuts, test before

Minister insists her plan has a

coast.

0:50:250:50:27

appearing to show the body

of a suicide victim in Japan.

0:50:270:50:30

Here's our Media Editor Amol Rajan.

0:50:300:50:31

We are going to take a break

from vlogging and each other.

0:50:310:50:36

Low-budget, confessional and often

astonishingly popular.

0:50:360:50:39

This couple announced

they were breaking up on YouTube

0:50:390:50:44

in a video seen 15 million times.

0:50:440:50:48

And if I can do it, you can do it...

0:50:480:50:51

They are part of a phenomenon called

vlogging or video blogging,

0:50:510:50:53

very often on Google-owned YouTube.

0:50:530:50:57

This 21st century cottage industry

has created a vast new fleet

0:50:570:51:00

of online celebrities.

0:51:000:51:04

Many vloggers have a commited

following among those

0:51:040:51:06

aged between 18 and 34,

a demographic prized by advertisers.

0:51:060:51:13

Vloggers like Logan Paul.

0:51:130:51:14

The 22-year-old American

is a YouTube star, or was.

0:51:140:51:18

I think this definitely marks

a moment in YouTube history.

0:51:180:51:21

This morning YouTube cut

business ties with him

0:51:210:51:25

after he naively posted a video

from Japan's Aokigahara Forest,

0:51:250:51:28

infamous as a suicide spot.

0:51:280:51:30

Paul issued an apology to his 15

million subscribers on YouTube.

0:51:300:51:33

I have made a severe and continuous

lapse of my judgment and I don't

0:51:330:51:39

expect to be forgiven.

0:51:390:51:41

I'm simply here to apologise.

0:51:410:51:45

In a statement, YouTube said:

Vlogging is now hugely popular

0:51:450:51:47

Vlogging is now hugely popular

0:51:560:51:58

business with the likes

of Logan Paul making vast sums

0:51:580:52:01

of money in a variety of ways.

0:52:010:52:06

They get paid up to £3 per 1000

clicks and can top up their income

0:52:060:52:10

through merchandising and deals

with brands, and they do all of that

0:52:100:52:12

without the more stringent controls

applied to traditional media.

0:52:120:52:15

The boss of Britain's

biggest media agency wants

0:52:150:52:17

to see smarter regulation.

0:52:170:52:24

I would definitely like to see

vloggers with this much reach

0:52:240:52:26

and influence to have the sorts

of regulation traditional

0:52:260:52:28

broadcasters have got to adhere to,

particularly around content that can

0:52:280:52:32

be dangerous, can be glamorising

or condoning anti-social behaviour,

0:52:320:52:34

dangerous behaviour,

that can be copied by children.

0:52:340:52:42

I'm going to be the biggest

entertainer on the planet...

0:52:420:52:46

Logan Paul and his ilk portend

a new kind of celebrity.

0:52:460:52:49

One that it intimate,

incessant and ever more devotional.

0:52:490:52:51

For all of the glory of the open

web, the danger is that his kind

0:52:510:52:55

of immaturity exposes audiences

to material that is

0:52:550:52:59

in nobody's interest.

0:52:590:53:00

I'm just getting warmed up.

0:53:000:53:02

Amol Rajan, BBC News.

0:53:020:53:08

This is interesting, I was speaking

about this to my daughter, Poppy,

0:53:080:53:13

very familiar with his work. It was

the only news story that she was

0:53:130:53:18

aware of, the whole controversy

surrounding him, unsurprising that

0:53:180:53:23

50 million subscribers last year,

last year he made $12.5 million and

0:53:230:53:26

now there is criticism of YouTube

and it took them 12 days to respond,

0:53:260:53:32

that they did not take the video

down, Logan Paul took it down.

0:53:320:53:36

Should they have done something

faster? We are hearing this kind of

0:53:360:53:40

criticism about all social media

companies. Do they need more

0:53:400:53:44

regulation?

He doesn't work for

YouTube, he posts on a social

0:53:440:53:49

platform. When you work for a big

organisation like the BBC there is a

0:53:490:53:52

code of ethics and the ethics of

communication. YouTube provide

0:53:520:53:57

guidance and puts trust in people

who are quite young and you are

0:53:570:54:01

asking them to get it right all the

time. It is a big ask and part of

0:54:010:54:05

the problem. The other issue made

today is that very often the

0:54:050:54:08

sanctions are not strong enough for

people who digress, and they need to

0:54:080:54:13

impose those sanctions more than

they do.

Yes.

0:54:130:54:16

A firm that supplied lingerie

to the Queen has lost its royal

0:54:160:54:21

warrant after releasing a book,

called 'Storm in a D-Cup',

0:54:210:54:23

which revealed details

of royal bra fittings.

0:54:230:54:25

The company Rigby & Peller,

had held the royal warrant

0:54:250:54:27

for more than 50 years.

0:54:280:54:29

It said it was "deeply

saddened" by the decision.

0:54:290:54:31

Buckingham Palace has said

it does not "comment

0:54:310:54:33

on individual companies".

0:54:330:54:38

Nor will I comment on that

particular story!

No, moving along!

0:54:380:54:43

We're going to stick

with the royal theme,

0:54:430:54:45

and that's because Prince William's

been put on the spot

0:54:450:54:51

over his brother, Prince Harry's

wedding on the 19th of May.

0:54:510:54:54

Wills, who's second in line

to the throne, was filming

0:54:540:54:56

for a mental health charity

with former England football

0:54:560:54:59

captain Rio Ferdinand,

and London DJ Roman Kemp -

0:54:590:55:01

when this happened.

0:55:010:55:02

There is the matter of a small

wedding that will happen this year -

0:55:020:55:05

of course, your brother -

we're very happy for him...

0:55:050:55:08

It was a big decision.

0:55:080:55:10

Are we going to Wembley,

or are we going to...

0:55:100:55:14

LAUGHTER

Still working it out.

0:55:140:55:17

I'll have to see what I can do.

0:55:170:55:18

I think, you know, having that

that, and the skin of

0:55:180:55:22

I'm not sure what royal protocol is

that I don't think you can snub the

0:55:370:55:41

future King of England as the best

man, can you?

Not without causing a

0:55:410:55:48

lot of sibling rivalry and problems!

The fact he's had to go on

0:55:480:55:52

television and say that he hasn't

asked me yet, how long has it been

0:55:520:55:56

since they announced their

engagement? He's had long enough!

0:55:560:55:59

Carrie, get on with it!

I don't

think he realises how much work goes

0:55:590:56:04

into planning the stag do, you've

got to get on with it!

I'm sure he's

0:56:040:56:08

aware of that! I think he will do a

good job there!

Coming up, Ros

0:56:080:56:15

Atkins is here with Outside Source,

0:56:150:56:18

headlines. We are here on Monday

evening! It has been a long week!

0:56:180:56:24

See you then. Have a good weekend.
