after securing promotion today, there is also a chance for Bradley

:00:00.:00:00.

to get into the Premier League. Can they do it? Send out in 15 minutes.

:00:00.:00:14.

`` Burnley. `` find out in 15 minutes.

:00:15.:00:18.

Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers will be bringing

:00:19.:00:22.

us tomorrow. With me are the broadcaster Shyama Perera and

:00:23.:00:23.

freelance parliamentary correspondent Rob Merrick. I scared

:00:24.:00:29.

the stationery cupboard to find the last remaining yellow highlighter.

:00:30.:00:35.

The pink one would not do. Rob has given them up for Lent. Let's take a

:00:36.:00:41.

look at the front pages. Nice to have you here. Better start with the

:00:42.:00:49.

front pages. In an interview with the

:00:50.:00:51.

Independent, the Government's Surveillance Commissioner has warned

:00:52.:00:54.

roadside cameras are threatening our privacy. The Mail reports

:00:55.:00:56.

allegations that British Gas have paid staff bonuses to inflate

:00:57.:00:59.

customers' bills. The Mirror says one of the men

:01:00.:01:02.

convicted over the killing of a young boy in Liverpool in 2007 has

:01:03.:01:07.

been released from prison. The Archbishop of Canterbury tells

:01:08.:01:10.

the Telegraph about his anguish over the Church of England's position on

:01:11.:01:13.

gay marriage. The Express says pensioners are

:01:14.:01:16.

taking out equity from their homes to make ends meet. The FT says the

:01:17.:01:24.

world's largest asset manager is preparing to launch new pension

:01:25.:01:27.

products in the UK in the light of changes announced in the Budget.

:01:28.:01:30.

The Guardian says the personal financial data of millions of people

:01:31.:01:33.

could be sold under plans being drawn up by Revenue and Customs. And

:01:34.:01:40.

the times that says the document has America which undermines claims by a

:01:41.:01:43.

group of Iraqis that they were ill treated by British soldiers one

:01:44.:01:45.

decade eagle. So let's begin. `` one decade ago.

:01:46.:01:54.

This interview that the Daily Telegraph has done with the

:01:55.:01:57.

Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby. We would expect one of the

:01:58.:02:02.

papers would do that this weekend. The subject of this is the anguish I

:02:03.:02:07.

face over a gay marriage, the Archbishop suggesting he is

:02:08.:02:10.

powerless to bless gay marriages because to do so would split the

:02:11.:02:15.

global Anglican Church. This has been such a problem for the church.

:02:16.:02:20.

It continues to be so even though gay marriage is legal. Lots of

:02:21.:02:25.

interest in the Archbishop. It is one year since he took over. Way or

:02:26.:02:30.

the Archbishop is a completely different Archbishop in many ways, I

:02:31.:02:35.

met him in the bar at the House of Commons when he came down from the

:02:36.:02:41.

County Durham. There were six or seven of us having a pint. You don't

:02:42.:02:45.

expect to have a pint with the Archbishop of Canterbury. He was

:02:46.:02:52.

calling for more beer. When it comes to women bishops as welcome as he is

:02:53.:02:55.

different, but he had taken a hard line on gay marriage. He spoke out

:02:56.:02:59.

against gay marriage and self in the House of Lords. Now it seems the

:03:00.:03:06.

church won't accept gay marriage. He is walking a take up. `` the church

:03:07.:03:13.

will accept gay marriage. How can he keep the church together if he is

:03:14.:03:17.

going to give any credence to their antipathy to gay marriage in other

:03:18.:03:19.

countries and yet his own bishops and priests in Britain. They want to

:03:20.:03:24.

get married and are getting married. One of his clergymen has already

:03:25.:03:28.

defied that rule that they are not to do it and has married his

:03:29.:03:34.

partner. It is not clear how the church can apply to this. They could

:03:35.:03:42.

lose their position but we just now. Lots of people in this country

:03:43.:03:45.

initially did not agree with a marriage and overcame that opinion

:03:46.:03:48.

has changed. Some people still do not. It is very difficult for the

:03:49.:03:53.

church, isn't it? It is very difficult. It is one older legends

:03:54.:03:59.

must grapple with. Every story today seems to be about one religion or

:04:00.:04:04.

another trying to force a line in terms of its own beliefs. I just

:04:05.:04:10.

find it odd that he can see in this interview, we are struggling with

:04:11.:04:12.

the reality that there are different groups around the place that the

:04:13.:04:15.

church can do or has done great harm to. You look at some of the Gay

:04:16.:04:22.

Lesbian LGBT clips in this country and around the road, Africa

:04:23.:04:27.

included, actually, and their experience of abuse, hatred, all

:04:28.:04:32.

kinds of things, he says, but we must respond to what we have done in

:04:33.:04:36.

the past and listen to those voices extremely carefully. I don't know

:04:37.:04:44.

what the negative of the kind of complete opposite of having your

:04:45.:04:47.

cake and eating it is but this is what it is, it is a no`win

:04:48.:04:51.

situation. He is acknowledging wrong but can't actually do anything about

:04:52.:04:56.

it. I just think it is terribly wishy`washy. She is trying to keep

:04:57.:05:02.

the church together, isn't he? He is recognising the potential for this

:05:03.:05:06.

subject. Visit the church still struggled with many people `` many

:05:07.:05:12.

people struggle with the idea of women bishops but this one is more

:05:13.:05:16.

explosive and he is trying to hold the church together. It is not clear

:05:17.:05:22.

how that is going to happen. In places like Uganda and Nigeria it is

:05:23.:05:26.

different. When it comes to his own church, over time, in this country,

:05:27.:05:29.

presumably more members of the Church of England will accept gay

:05:30.:05:33.

marriage. His own stance was against it at first, he has now moved closer

:05:34.:05:38.

to accepting it. You can imagine more Church of England people will

:05:39.:05:42.

accept it. If you change policy so that you are penalised if you do not

:05:43.:05:49.

adhere to a particular set of moral values, basically change is forced

:05:50.:05:54.

upon us slowly but surely with racism, ageism, with all of those.

:05:55.:05:59.

We have all learned to be better people as a result of the law. The

:06:00.:06:04.

law threatening us with actions if we don't learn to be better people,

:06:05.:06:07.

and I guess what the churches are struggling with, they are struggling

:06:08.:06:15.

with that very problem. Slowly but surely this will create a change in

:06:16.:06:18.

the Church of England. It will probably take 20 years, as it did

:06:19.:06:25.

with e`mail bishops but it may come. We will stay on the Daily

:06:26.:06:30.

Telegraph's FrontPage. Official quoted as saying state schools

:06:31.:06:33.

isolate non`Muslims. This is schools in Birmingham. Or should we say, a

:06:34.:06:40.

handful of schools, these girls in Birmingham who are illegally

:06:41.:06:42.

segregating pupils, disk and eating against non`neutrons `` non`Muslim

:06:43.:06:49.

students. This is an official report which has been leaked to the Daily

:06:50.:06:55.

Telegraph, but this concern over the actions of certain skills and the

:06:56.:07:00.

kind of governors they are appointing has been rumbling on for

:07:01.:07:05.

a few weeks. You come back to this thing, if we have policies and laws

:07:06.:07:08.

that see this as you behave, actually skills have to adhere. To

:07:09.:07:13.

those rules. I think all of these skills in Birmingham need to be

:07:14.:07:18.

dealt with very quickly to find out just how true these allegations are

:07:19.:07:21.

ought to what extent they are true. `` these schools. I am not sure if

:07:22.:07:27.

they have been exaggerated. But in treating on a group of Muslim pupils

:07:28.:07:32.

ahead of a smaller group of non`Muslim pupils, I am not sure

:07:33.:07:36.

that is about religion or about need in terms of the input that that

:07:37.:07:40.

particular group needs in terms of the smaller group. We do not know

:07:41.:07:44.

why that might be happening. If you are changing the course syllabus

:07:45.:07:50.

because of your personal belief system, that is completely

:07:51.:07:55.

unacceptable. If you are segregating children in a country where boys and

:07:56.:07:58.

girls are equal, that is an acceptable. And it must be dealt

:07:59.:08:05.

with. `` that is an acceptable. The suggestion is that it goes further

:08:06.:08:11.

than need, this is a report that together by the Department for

:08:12.:08:14.

Education inspectors seeing that some Christian pupils were left to

:08:15.:08:18.

effectively teach themselves. There is not too much detail about what is

:08:19.:08:21.

opposed to go on the skills and of course this is a new twist on a very

:08:22.:08:25.

murky story. This Trojan horse document appeared to show an attempt

:08:26.:08:28.

to unseat head teachers who are deemed to be not Islamist enough,

:08:29.:08:33.

not hardline Muslim enough, that may not be true. This is definitely the

:08:34.:08:38.

real document. I am struck by the fact that it is a Department for

:08:39.:08:41.

Education document because there is a tug`of`war going on between

:08:42.:08:44.

Birmingham City Council and Michael Gove. Surprisingly, he sees a chance

:08:45.:08:52.

to send his own inspectors in. This is a different inspector. As ever

:08:53.:08:55.

the document has been leaked to the Daily Telegraph for a reason and it

:08:56.:08:58.

appears to show there has been an attempt escalated. It does. Let's

:08:59.:09:04.

move on to the Daily Mail. We are looking at a particular aspect of

:09:05.:09:06.

what is happening in the crisis in Ukraine. What the Jewish leaflet a

:09:07.:09:12.

fake? This is a leaflet that is said to have ordered Jewish people in

:09:13.:09:14.

Donetsk in the eastern Ukraine to register with pro`Russian forces

:09:15.:09:18.

because they appear to be siding with the interim government in Kiev.

:09:19.:09:25.

A suggestion now that it was a fake document. Again, we do not know but

:09:26.:09:28.

here is another story about religion. The main story, the most

:09:29.:09:32.

predictable story of the day, that one day after an apparent peace deal

:09:33.:09:37.

is reached, the peace deal is on the brink of collapse. We could all have

:09:38.:09:41.

predicted that. There is a quote in the last part from the separatists

:09:42.:09:45.

in Donetsk seeing, we are the Russian bear just waking up. You can

:09:46.:09:50.

find whatever documents you like, but that may tap the lead might not

:09:51.:09:57.

have an impact on the ground. If the Russian bear is coming out to eat

:09:58.:10:04.

and, we ought to be a bit anxious. `` that might not have an impact on

:10:05.:10:13.

the ground. It seems to be quite possible that there is something in

:10:14.:10:17.

this. Perhaps that they have been quick to say that it is a fake

:10:18.:10:20.

simply because they are worried about its impact on Western Europe,

:10:21.:10:27.

but it is an ugly story. Even if somebody did it as a joke, it is an

:10:28.:10:34.

ugly thing to do as a joke because it suggests that that is an issue

:10:35.:10:39.

there. Yes. Great concern is that Russia is behind this. Vladimir

:10:40.:10:46.

Putin is stating that what is happening in Ukraine is nothing to

:10:47.:10:51.

do with us. William Hague seems to differ and is threatening more

:10:52.:10:53.

sanctions if Russia does not help to de`escalate. I think we need to find

:10:54.:10:59.

a better word than that. He has caught us out at every single stage

:11:00.:11:03.

of this. He had done what a really good general does, which is catch

:11:04.:11:08.

the opposition by surprise so that they just are running to catch up

:11:09.:11:12.

rather than able to head them off. We don't know how much Putin is

:11:13.:11:15.

pulling the strings at the moment or whether he has unleashed something

:11:16.:11:19.

he is not in control of when it comes to the separatists. A Sussex

:11:20.:11:24.

teenager killed fighting in Syria. This is the 18`year`old student who

:11:25.:11:30.

is from Brighton. He died in the subtle war. They went to fight with

:11:31.:11:37.

anti`government militias. His brother has went as well, it seems.

:11:38.:11:42.

Again, a lot of detail that we don't really know which paid knew the

:11:43.:11:47.

whereabouts of these boys. `` which parents knew. This grab my eye. It

:11:48.:11:53.

is a story everyone will be interested in. How on earth can an

:11:54.:11:58.

18`year`old be in Syria without his parents' knowledge and fighting and

:11:59.:12:03.

then tragically dialling? You make your something about that in the

:12:04.:12:06.

abstract about Britain's going over to take in Syria and lots of people

:12:07.:12:11.

think terrorists. The last thing they think when they look at page,

:12:12.:12:16.

he is not a terrorist. For want of a better word, he may just be a

:12:17.:12:22.

teenager. We have all had children going on gap year's or going off to

:12:23.:12:27.

little festivals with their friends. Not signing off to go to the Middle

:12:28.:12:31.

East and fighting a war. If you are as daft as a brush and when you are

:12:32.:12:36.

18 and a lot of people are, you may think it is rather fun and the

:12:37.:12:41.

clever thing to do. You would think it is an adventure. Yes. It is one

:12:42.:12:47.

of those stories that it doesn't matter whether it turns out to be

:12:48.:12:50.

sinister or it turns out to be foolish, it is an interesting tale

:12:51.:12:57.

of how teenagers do spur of the moment actions which get them in

:12:58.:13:01.

trouble. Beware, all parents whose kids are going away for a year. 400

:13:02.:13:06.

Britons are thought to have gone and fought in Syria and some will be

:13:07.:13:10.

like this teenager. Some might have come back you are like this

:13:11.:13:13.

teenager, on an adventure or Germanic Tyrian mission but it is a

:13:14.:13:18.

nightmare. It is a main field for the security services when these

:13:19.:13:27.

people come home. I'm going to leapfrog to the end and to the

:13:28.:13:33.

Guardian. Catherine meets Sydney 's finest. Here is the Duchess of

:13:34.:13:38.

Cambridge looking in little overdressed in Austria. It's not a

:13:39.:13:49.

Baywatch, is that? The men are rather manly and the woman, which I

:13:50.:13:55.

suppose is a good thing, each because it doesn't become a

:13:56.:14:00.

sexualised image. They are all motley and manly. Do you think

:14:01.:14:06.

they're all motley? I think if I looked like that in a pair of briefs

:14:07.:14:09.

I would wear out there for the News review I will spare everyone that.

:14:10.:14:16.

It is a great picture, though. I think she is clearly winning hearts

:14:17.:14:21.

over there. I am not sure if we are as entranced by it here but I guess

:14:22.:14:27.

all the tabloids are. In this picture you cannot see the dress she

:14:28.:14:37.

has warm elsewhere. . And wedges as well, she didn't even kick off her

:14:38.:14:42.

wedges. You have to look call in Australia. They would be eating

:14:43.:14:50.

Easter eggs this weekend. That is it for the papers this hour. We will be

:14:51.:14:57.

back at 11:30pm to look at the stories making the front pages.

:14:58.:15:00.

Coming up next it is sports day. Hello, and welcome to Sportsday. I'm

:15:01.:15:14.

Katherine Downes. A familiar face to lead English cricket. The BBC

:15:15.:15:17.

understands Peter Moores will return to the coaching

:15:18.:15:18.
