The Guard, Calvary, a dark comedy about threats to murder a priest in

:00:00.:00:00.

Ireland, plus the other top releases in The Film Review at quarter to

:00:00.:00:19.

midnight on BBC News. So much going on. Hello and welcome to our look

:00:20.:00:26.

ahead to what the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. With me are

:00:27.:00:29.

the broadcaster, Penny Smith and the political journalist, Sean Dilley.

:00:30.:00:32.

Tomorrow's front pages. The Independent leads on the volatile

:00:33.:00:34.

situation in Ukraine, saying the country's future is hanging in the

:00:35.:00:36.

balance. situation in Ukraine, saying the

:00:37.:00:43.

country's The Financial Times carries a photo of Wilson Kipsang

:00:44.:00:46.

crossing the finishing line at the London Marathon, but its main story

:00:47.:00:49.

says that almost a billion people are at risk of slipping out of the

:00:50.:00:52.

ranks of the middle classes in the developing world. Mo Farrah makes an

:00:53.:00:59.

appearance on the front page of the Telegraph, but the paper leads on a

:01:00.:01:02.

report by MPs calling for a revolution in public administration.

:01:03.:01:04.

The Guardian shows Liverpool players celebrating their victory over Man

:01:05.:01:07.

City, but leads on Ukraine, saying Russia is warning the country could

:01:08.:01:12.

face a civil war. Ukraine also on the front page of the Times, here

:01:13.:01:16.

the focus is on the country's deployment of troops to drive out

:01:17.:01:23.

suspected Russian soldiers. And there's a picture of the Duchess of

:01:24.:01:27.

Cambridge enjoying a glass of wine ` some say to dispel rumours she's

:01:28.:01:30.

pregnant. Kate and William also pictured on the Daily Mail. But the

:01:31.:01:33.

main article says alleged victims of the deceased former MP for Rochdale

:01:34.:01:36.

Cyril Smith may sue the Liberal Democrats if it can be shown that

:01:37.:01:39.

they knew about the alleged abuse and failed to try to stop him. The

:01:40.:01:42.

Express says researchers have found proof that statins can reduce the

:01:43.:01:46.

risk of dementia by a quarter. The photo is of the Prime Minister and

:01:47.:01:49.

his wife on holiday in Lanzarote. And a grizzly note to end on: The

:01:50.:01:52.

Mirror pictures a two`foot`long rat, and says the creatures are

:01:53.:01:54.

threatening to overrun Britain's cities. Nice. I know. Yes. I once

:01:55.:02:16.

stayed in a room in Hong Kong when I was working there, and to make

:02:17.:02:21.

enormous rats used to sit in the bath drinking from the tap in the

:02:22.:02:26.

middle of the night. You had to make a lot of noise when you went in so

:02:27.:02:28.

they let out the window. a lot of noise when you went in so

:02:29.:02:30.

they let At least you don't see them. You have to be careful,

:02:31.:02:36.

because some rats go up through the toilet. Do they? Thank you. I

:02:37.:02:45.

managed to survive intact. Shall we talk about the papers? The

:02:46.:02:49.

Independent. We will start with that. A photo of pro`Russian forces

:02:50.:02:56.

seizing a building in eastern Ukraine. You can see that they are

:02:57.:03:02.

in uniform without insignia. They have AK`47 rifles. According to our

:03:03.:03:11.

correspondence, they are very well trained `` correspondents. Russia

:03:12.:03:17.

denies involvement. It's in a Russian area, and you wonder if

:03:18.:03:27.

those demonstrators marks ago, `` months ago demonstrating to be

:03:28.:03:32.

allied with the West, whether here they are. They didn't want to have

:03:33.:03:49.

their government joining Europe. Huge parts are becoming even more

:03:50.:03:54.

pro`Russian. We were talking about this in the newsroom. I was pointing

:03:55.:03:58.

out that it should be remembered, and believe me, I am not a friend of

:03:59.:04:06.

Vladimir Putin, but in terms of people who voted in the referendum,

:04:07.:04:10.

although we don't recognise internationally, there are strong

:04:11.:04:14.

feelings towards Russia there. The fact people protest doesn't mean it

:04:15.:04:21.

is not a vocal minority. I'm not suggesting that. We don't even know

:04:22.:04:24.

if these militants are even representing the views of local

:04:25.:04:30.

people in that town. Most of whom are hiding in their homes. Fears

:04:31.:04:34.

rise of a second Crimea, according to the Guardian. Again, Russia,

:04:35.:04:42.

tonight on state television said they had nothing to do with it. They

:04:43.:04:48.

called for a UN emergency meeting. You think this is a clever game if

:04:49.:04:54.

they are behind this? It is difficult to know what is going on.

:04:55.:04:58.

Particularly, if you ask somebody and they are saying it wasn't me,

:04:59.:05:04.

where do you go forward from that? It is difficult to see what will

:05:05.:05:09.

happen, particularly with the West saying essentially that if you don't

:05:10.:05:15.

pull back from the brink, we will do more. There will be consequences. As

:05:16.:05:22.

we heard from your correspondent, the iron curtain is slowly coming

:05:23.:05:27.

back up again. Or Mac it is a slow chill down to a Cold War `` it is a

:05:28.:05:38.

slow chill down to a Cold War. Some of the rhetoric about consequences,

:05:39.:05:43.

that's fine. It sounds like a smaller person shouting at a great

:05:44.:05:50.

big person that they will smack him. As I said earlier, Russia is one of

:05:51.:05:55.

these silly countries that digs they need a large standing army. ``

:05:56.:06:02.

thinks they need a large standing army. So whether something can be

:06:03.:06:06.

done remains to be seen. On the bottom of the front page of the

:06:07.:06:13.

Guardian, politics closer to home. The organisers of the Glasgow

:06:14.:06:17.

Commonwealth Games were planning to dynamite five locks of flats as part

:06:18.:06:23.

of the Opening Ceremony. They have decided against it `` five block. As

:06:24.:06:31.

you do. They had nothing to regenerate. What can we blow up?

:06:32.:06:41.

Nothing. Not Westfield, whatever you do. It has been withdrawn, not

:06:42.:06:46.

because it is a sensible decision, but more because of health and

:06:47.:06:51.

safety. Excellent quoting of the health and safety. It is so quoted,

:06:52.:06:59.

health and safety is a very sensible thing. Not because of its over

:07:00.:07:03.

interpretation, you hear it and you imagine a bloke in a boiler suit

:07:04.:07:07.

being slightly pedantic about whether the pool is to nip the two

:07:08.:07:21.

swim in. `` nippy. On to the Financial Times. The story has been

:07:22.:07:25.

here all year. More news by George Osborne to give the taxpayer more

:07:26.:07:37.

powers `` Taxman more powers to collect money. Part of the

:07:38.:07:45.

controversial proposals is that you can dig into people bank accounts if

:07:46.:07:54.

you feel money is owed. It may cross the line in terms of civil

:07:55.:07:59.

liberties. The other concern is the idea of sending people to prison if

:08:00.:08:04.

they invest money abroad. Whether they know it or not. It flies in the

:08:05.:08:11.

face of guilty knowledge and guilty intent, or mens rea. Is it just me,

:08:12.:08:22.

or when you hear about dipping in, you imagine a local fair, where you

:08:23.:08:36.

put money in and get a cuddly toy. The Duchess of Cambridge. Bathed in

:08:37.:08:45.

sunlight with a large glass of red. Doesn't that look nice at this

:08:46.:08:56.

time. It is speculated it was to settle rumours she is pregnant. She

:08:57.:09:02.

needs to have a word with her husband about idle chat. He does it

:09:03.:09:14.

on purpose. He does. Wouldn't you? I need to buy her a bigger jersey. Is

:09:15.:09:23.

she pregnant? No, she's just putting on the pounds. I've been out of the

:09:24.:09:30.

country, our of Wi`Fi contact. I had to have a crash course on what has

:09:31.:09:37.

been happening. He told me that there were about 17,000 baby

:09:38.:09:41.

pictures. And more to come, I am sure. Let's move on to rats. Big old

:09:42.:09:55.

rats. A plague of giant rats. These are horrible. We heard about them

:09:56.:10:01.

earlier on. Two weeks ago in Birmingham. Here they are popping up

:10:02.:10:11.

again in Liverpool. The problem is they are immune to poison. And look

:10:12.:10:18.

at their horrible tales. These were found in Liverpool `` tails. They

:10:19.:10:30.

eat too much and get fat. The way we have to kill them is apparently

:10:31.:10:33.

through cholesterol. It is horrifying, isn't it? There are

:10:34.:10:40.

always more rats. In London, you are never more than two feet away from a

:10:41.:10:46.

rat. Especially in the House of Commons. Although seriously, there

:10:47.:10:52.

is a vermin problem there. Holidaymaker gets ?2600 bill for

:10:53.:10:58.

downloading a Neil diamond song on her iPhone. I've just come back from

:10:59.:11:04.

Brazil, and I was saying before I went on air saying that I had

:11:05.:11:10.

reached my limit. As you easily can sending e`mails from abroad. That's

:11:11.:11:16.

great, because you realise you have dumped two hole e`mails. `` whole

:11:17.:11:27.

e`mails. A holidaymaker decided to download an album for a friend, and

:11:28.:11:34.

got a huge bill from Orange. The irony is that despite the fact they

:11:35.:11:41.

used the same network in the UK, everyone operates on a system where

:11:42.:11:44.

if you go over your allowance, it you have two purchase a certain

:11:45.:11:50.

amount of data. She got a bit of a bargain. She got the album for 400

:11:51.:12:01.

quid. She thought she was doing it for eight pounds. And she said she

:12:02.:12:05.

doesn't really like Neil diamond. There's something wrong with that, I

:12:06.:12:11.

love Neil diamond. The album she thought was 8.99 pounds. This is the

:12:12.:12:22.

front page of the Daily Telegraph, Mo Farrah has appeared in quite a

:12:23.:12:27.

few front pages. Huge disappointment for him and his supporters. When it

:12:28.:12:33.

comes to the World Cup, don't get behind the England team, or they

:12:34.:12:38.

will not win. If we didn't support them, there might win. Two hours

:12:39.:12:46.

eight minutes, he was eighth in the marathon. Show the man some

:12:47.:12:50.

respect. He did brilliantly. To all of you who did the marathon on. All

:12:51.:12:57.

of those broken people I saw on the Tube today. Was that a marathon

:12:58.:13:07.

thing, or was that something else? And all that money for charity. Many

:13:08.:13:14.

thanks. Thank you for watching. As midnight, as pro` Russian militants

:13:15.:13:19.

seized buildings in Ukraine, we will have the latest on the crisis.
