Snuka, cricket, and cycling, after The Papers. ``snooker.

:00:00.:00:16.

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

:00:17.:00:22.

bringing us tomorrow. With me are Jenni Russell, columnist at The

:00:23.:00:24.

Times, and Neil Midgley, media writer at the Daily Telegraph.

:00:25.:00:29.

Tomorrow's front pages. The Express leads on the search for Madeleine

:00:30.:00:41.

McCann. It claims that detectives working on the case are now ready to

:00:42.:00:45.

make arrests in the Algarve. The Telegraph reports on Bank of England

:00:46.:00:48.

figures. It says welfare reforms have driven up the number of people

:00:49.:00:51.

who are self`employed, creating a new generation of entrepreneurs. The

:00:52.:00:53.

Guardian focuses on police hopes that British Muslim women may tell

:00:54.:00:56.

them about family members travelling to Syria to fight. The Metro leads

:00:57.:01:00.

on a court case involving a man who allegedly ran a five million pound

:01:01.:01:05.

fraud scheme. The Times says a new union for classroom teachers is to

:01:06.:01:08.

be launched amid growing discomfort at existing organisations. The Sun

:01:09.:01:14.

has a picture of the Duchess of Cornwall with her brother, Mark

:01:15.:01:18.

Shand, who died after a fall in New York yesterday. That's also the lead

:01:19.:01:21.

in the Mail. The paper says the Duchess is devastated. The Mirror,

:01:22.:01:27.

like the Express, has more on the search for Madeleine McCann. It says

:01:28.:01:30.

police are investigating a sex attack on a ten`year`old British

:01:31.:01:33.

girl in the same resort from where Madeleine vanished. With me are

:01:34.:01:36.

Jenni Russell, columnist at The Times, and Neil Midgley, media

:01:37.:01:42.

writer at the Daily Telegraph. We will start with the times, teachers

:01:43.:01:46.

fighting with the breakaway union. This is a good news story, as far as

:01:47.:01:53.

it goes. A new union affiliated to the National Association of head

:01:54.:01:58.

teachers, a more moderate union, only for the very top of the

:01:59.:02:05.

teaching profession. It is for senior teachers, heads of

:02:06.:02:08.

Department, those sort of people who are below head teachers. It is hoped

:02:09.:02:16.

that when most people come out of that a new tee, that because they

:02:17.:02:24.

are so senior within schools, the strike threat has less staying in it

:02:25.:02:30.

`` NUT. What about unions that exist at the moment, are they too gung ho

:02:31.:02:34.

when it comes to downing pens and paper? I have been writing about

:02:35.:02:40.

education for the past dozen years or so, there has been a lot of

:02:41.:02:43.

criticism under the Blair government and the conservative one. When you

:02:44.:02:48.

speak to individual teachers, they are fantastically intelligent about

:02:49.:02:51.

what is going on in the classroom, but when they are together

:02:52.:02:54.

collectively, they sound like mad people. I am a person who believes

:02:55.:02:59.

in unions but the way the union leadership is run in teaching unions

:03:00.:03:02.

has been very counter`productive. They have parents on their side, but

:03:03.:03:06.

they have not made any ultimate bout what has happened to education that

:03:07.:03:15.

has resonance. Is this what they want? I think it is a militant

:03:16.:03:19.

leadership, that says something the rank and file not happy with. It is

:03:20.:03:23.

an excellent story to have, it is not quite clear, it is a new trade

:03:24.:03:28.

union for classroom teachers, but it does not say whether it is for

:03:29.:03:34.

exclusively to ship positions. Calling it this name. `` to

:03:35.:03:41.

leadership positions. It is not the snappiest brand. Is it on the edge

:03:42.:03:46.

of becoming a head teacher? On the edge of teaching altogether? On the

:03:47.:03:50.

edge of striking and not crossing the edge! Lets go on the edge of

:03:51.:03:52.

striking and not crossing the edge! Let's go onto the Daily Mail, the

:03:53.:03:57.

very sad news that Mark Shand, the Duchess of Cornwall's younger

:03:58.:04:01.

brother, has died in a fall in New York. He was a larger`than`life

:04:02.:04:09.

character by all accounts, committed to saving the Asian elephant. He

:04:10.:04:14.

seemed to be someone who had a fantastically interesting social

:04:15.:04:17.

life, but was also concerned about the natural world. It is a fairly

:04:18.:04:21.

common combination among people at the top of the social tree. He

:04:22.:04:25.

seemed dedicated to those conservation charities. We were just

:04:26.:04:28.

discussing beforehand, how does someone die falling over on a

:04:29.:04:33.

pavement in New York? Neal was saying that apparently he was

:04:34.:04:36.

walking along with his hands in his pockets and possibly did not get

:04:37.:04:44.

them out in time. ``Neil. A friend of mine, when I was living in Paris,

:04:45.:04:50.

she was walking along the road, hands in her pockets, which straight

:04:51.:04:55.

down on her head, and ended up in the same hospital that Princess

:04:56.:04:59.

Diana ended up in. It was a very traumatic experience. There is

:05:00.:05:02.

nothing to break your fall. I have never thought that having your hands

:05:03.:05:06.

in your pockets would be a risk. We are always told it is bad manners to

:05:07.:05:11.

talk with your hands in your pockets. If you have a flagstone

:05:12.:05:18.

sticking up a little or you trip over something, there's nothing to

:05:19.:05:22.

break your full. If you have had a couple of drinks, as it appears that

:05:23.:05:27.

he may have done. He was at a charity event. It is a horrible

:05:28.:05:30.

combination of circumstances. None of us tried to blame him. `` are

:05:31.:05:40.

trying to blame him. Let's go onto the Financial Times. Manufacturers

:05:41.:05:44.

are at their most optimistic since the 1970s. They are, since 1973, the

:05:45.:05:52.

CBI does a confidence index, it shows that 41% of manufacturers are

:05:53.:05:57.

more optimistic about the future, only 8% are less optimistic. That

:05:58.:06:02.

gives a net 33% positive index. That is apparently the best since 1973.

:06:03.:06:09.

As we were discussing earlier, it is great news for George Osborne. It

:06:10.:06:15.

adds some meat to the economic recovery. Some balance. Some wealth

:06:16.:06:25.

being created as opposed to things increasing like financial houses.

:06:26.:06:28.

There is the global economy as well, it shows a greater demand for

:06:29.:06:34.

reddish goods abroad. How does Ed Miliband fight this? How does he

:06:35.:06:37.

count of the ultimate that the commune is doing well under the

:06:38.:06:40.

Conservatives, so you should vote for them at the next election? If

:06:41.:06:45.

the economy starts doing well, they can work on that. `` the economy.

:06:46.:06:50.

They want to be in power as well. Ed Miliband's message is that there

:06:51.:06:57.

will be a recovery, who is benefiting? From their own

:06:58.:07:00.

statistics, it appears to be the people at the top. Labour have been

:07:01.:07:05.

brilliant at analysing the problem at the moment, inequality is

:07:06.:07:12.

growing. The benefits of everything that has happened in the past few

:07:13.:07:14.

years has been spread unequally. They have not been good at coming up

:07:15.:07:20.

with solution. It was spread unequally under Labour as well. A

:07:21.:07:24.

majority of jobs were created at the top and the bottom of the wage

:07:25.:07:27.

scale. The figures show they expected to get worse in years to

:07:28.:07:35.

come. It is in every single market economy in the world. What you do

:07:36.:07:43.

about this fact? As economies get stronger, you will find that wages

:07:44.:07:54.

are rising, but middle income jobs are falling. We are going to have

:07:55.:07:59.

more education and skills and training, we are going to raise the

:08:00.:08:03.

minimum wage, we are going to increase the living wage. It does

:08:04.:08:06.

not add up to enough to persuade anyone that this is the answer to an

:08:07.:08:12.

old problem. Hence the arrival of Mr Axelrod. At least they have

:08:13.:08:16.

recognised the problem and it will not go away. Staying with the

:08:17.:08:26.

Financial Times. Roy Marcos `` Primark. They are basically giving

:08:27.:08:38.

goods away in New York? If this succeeds and prime, who are very

:08:39.:08:41.

savvy, they will not have done this without research, it is a reflection

:08:42.:08:47.

of what we are talking about `` Primark. People have very little.

:08:48.:08:51.

Primark is one of the ways where people who not earning a Lott

:08:52.:08:55.

managed to clothe themselves, and get good outfits for nights out and

:08:56.:09:05.

holidays and schools. `` `a lot. And the road to hell is paved in

:09:06.:09:20.

America. P have done well in America. Primark very savvy, day? I

:09:21.:09:32.

was walking past the other day, and you can get clothes very cheap. ``

:09:33.:09:37.

aren't they? Did you shell out a bit? I was running for an

:09:38.:09:45.

interview! If I had not been, I would have stopped. This is the

:09:46.:09:53.

inside page of The Times. This is about the fretting industry. That is

:09:54.:10:00.

the caveat of this story, it is a study commissioned by the UK onshore

:10:01.:10:04.

operators group, supported by the Department for business. Your

:10:05.:10:15.

scepticism has jumped in here? The sheer scale of the potential for

:10:16.:10:20.

shale gas is staggering. They reckon that the British geological survey,

:10:21.:10:23.

they know what they are talking about, they estimate there's 1000

:10:24.:10:29.

300 trillion cubic feet shale gas under the North of England. As a

:10:30.:10:36.

country, we consume 3 trillion cubic feet. There are 400 years worth of

:10:37.:10:42.

natural gas. That is the North of England wiped out! In terms of the

:10:43.:10:48.

way it looks? In 18 years, we could draw 4000 wells. Can you imagine

:10:49.:10:53.

what that will look like? We have seen what it has done to the

:10:54.:10:58.

American economy in parts. And the American countryside? There is a lot

:10:59.:11:03.

more than we have here. It could shift the geopolitical balance of

:11:04.:11:07.

power when it comes to Russia. Holding the gun of energy towards

:11:08.:11:12.

the temples of the German people. It is between oil wells in the

:11:13.:11:16.

Pennines, and Vladimir Putin having a gun to our heads for our energy

:11:17.:11:21.

supply. You are not from the north, are you? I am! The wrong side of the

:11:22.:11:28.

Pennines, it does not matter! I am from Bolton! I wonder if all of

:11:29.:11:33.

England feels like you do? I think I prefer the beautiful mountains.

:11:34.:11:39.

There are stunning areas. It was like the wind farms we were

:11:40.:11:43.

discussing earlier. It depends on how much you get in return. They can

:11:44.:11:48.

completely ruined beautiful landscapes. They are so tall. I

:11:49.:11:54.

don't think sacking mines do that. They produce almost no energy, or

:11:55.:11:58.

any reliable energy, whereas tracking clearly, if these figures

:11:59.:12:03.

are right, it could be a game changer. There is the environmental

:12:04.:12:12.

problem. Come back, all is forgiven! Onto the front of this paper, this

:12:13.:12:17.

is Andy Murray, his head is about because he is in tears for the right

:12:18.:12:22.

reasons. Not because he lost a match on Centre Court or something. He has

:12:23.:12:27.

been given the freedom of the city of sterling. It is lovely when you

:12:28.:12:29.

watch public figures being moved by something other than their own

:12:30.:12:38.

glory. ``Sterling. It means a lot to people that they are recognised by

:12:39.:12:42.

their own communities. They are touching pictures. He started to

:12:43.:12:47.

give a speech. I cannot remember his exact words. He said he was very

:12:48.:12:52.

proud to come home. As soon as he said that word, " home". He is proud

:12:53.:12:58.

of where he comes from, and the history of don blame. I was going to

:12:59.:13:04.

say. It is a town with a dreadful history. Dunblaine. For the younger

:13:05.:13:13.

generation. There was a terrible massacre there. I think he was a

:13:14.:13:20.

child bow. He was. He was in the school when it happened. A number of

:13:21.:13:31.

children were killed `` Child there. Here we have a cartoon by Matt. It

:13:32.:13:46.

says, he was next to the TV when Jamaica In was on, and he just

:13:47.:13:52.

mumbles inaudibly. I'm sorry, haven't got my specs with me. At the

:13:53.:13:58.

controversy, hundreds of people called into complaint. Many people

:13:59.:14:06.

tweeted. A lot of journalists in a bank holiday week looking for a

:14:07.:14:15.

story. What is going on? Thereat two schools of thought, both of which

:14:16.:14:21.

are being pounded by the BBC. One is that the actors were just mumbling

:14:22.:14:28.

too much, and it is true, having watched it. I watched it on preview,

:14:29.:14:34.

so I didn't get transmission problems, and I said it was like

:14:35.:14:48.

Downton Abbey done by the Wurzells, because they were very thick West

:14:49.:14:57.

Country accents. Also, there is this potential problem with the sound

:14:58.:15:02.

mixing, as it was being transmitted, so now the unions have got involved

:15:03.:15:05.

and said, our sound mixing members are very good at their jobs. Some

:15:06.:15:21.

way another it became inaudible. Jamaica Inaudible. It lost a lot of

:15:22.:15:25.

viewers between its first and second episodes. These things cost hundreds

:15:26.:15:39.

of thousands of pounds many people put hours and hours of their time

:15:40.:15:46.

into it. It is good to have you in. Stay with us, at the top of the hour

:15:47.:15:50.

we will hear from the co`founder of the charity set up why the brother

:15:51.:15:53.

of the Duchess of Cornwall, who has died unexpectedly in New York. Now,

:15:54.:15:56.

it is time for Sportsday. Welcome to Sportsday. Manchester
