will have more on the sanctions basing Manchester City for failing

:00:00.:00:00.

to meet UEFA 's financial fair play rules, that is coming up in about 15

:00:00.:00:00.

minutes. Hello, and welcome to our look ahead

:00:00.:00:20.

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

:00:21.:00:22.

Ashton, Whitehall correspondent for The Sun, and journalist Eva Simpson.

:00:23.:00:28.

Pretty much all of the front pages are in now, we will start with the

:00:29.:00:32.

tragic death of the teacher Anne Maguire, that is the front page of

:00:33.:00:35.

the Independent. She was stabbed to death in front of pupils in a school

:00:36.:00:41.

in Leeds. That story is on the front page of Tomorrow's front pages.

:00:42.:00:47.

The Financial Times is going with the big Pharma takeover bid made by

:00:48.:01:05.

Pfizer for UK firm Astra`Zeneca. The Daily Telegraph is another paper

:01:06.:01:08.

leading with the killing of Leeds teacher, Anne Maguire. The paper

:01:09.:01:10.

says she was seen as the 'figurehead' of Corpus Christi

:01:11.:01:12.

Catholic College. The Daily Express also leads with the teacher's death,

:01:13.:01:16.

reporting that Mrs Maguire was in her final term before taking

:01:17.:01:23.

retirement. The Guardian claims that a cross`party campaign to discredit

:01:24.:01:26.

UKIP as "racists" is to be launched this week. The death of teacher Anne

:01:27.:01:29.

Maguire leads the Daily Mail, the paper says she was a dedicated

:01:30.:01:32.

teacher. And the Mirror's front page also focusses on that shocking

:01:33.:01:35.

story, reporting one pupil as saying Mrs Maguire was a "lovely teacher".

:01:36.:01:43.

It is clear, Emily, from the tribute is pouring in for Anne Maguire, who

:01:44.:01:47.

died up in Leeds, that she was well loved, and well liked, apparently

:01:48.:01:52.

the first murder of a teacher it on a school promises `` premises since

:01:53.:02:00.

Dunblane. `` tributes. The first murder in a classroom. She had been

:02:01.:02:06.

working at the school for 40 years, for her entire teaching career.

:02:07.:02:09.

There were a lot of peoples who respected her. You could tell this,

:02:10.:02:14.

people were travelling across Britain this afternoon to pay

:02:15.:02:18.

tributes to her, to lay some flowers for her. Pupils gathered at this

:02:19.:02:23.

church, earlier tonight, hundreds of pupils. Former students, and their

:02:24.:02:27.

parents, wanted to pay tribute to her. It is so shocking that this can

:02:28.:02:31.

happen in a classroom in front of other pupils. It does not bear

:02:32.:02:38.

thinking about. We are more used to hearing about teachers being

:02:39.:02:41.

killed, students being murdered, in America. This is the thing that we

:02:42.:02:45.

hear about in the news that happens in the United States, for summing

:02:46.:02:48.

like this to happen in Britain is unheard of. It is unprecedented.

:02:49.:02:56.

What is more tragic was that she was in her final term. She was about to

:02:57.:03:01.

retire this summer. She spent all of her career and her life working at

:03:02.:03:05.

the school. She was loved by pupils, and teachers, and by their parents.

:03:06.:03:12.

She was finally about to say goodbye. And then this awful thing

:03:13.:03:18.

happens. You hear of pupils potentially taking weapons into

:03:19.:03:20.

schools, in inner`city schools, knives, and that kind of thing.

:03:21.:03:26.

There has always been the suggestion that it is gang`related, and somehow

:03:27.:03:30.

tied up with trying to get one upon another gang, or another pupil in

:03:31.:03:39.

the same school. This was seen to be what is coming out, completely out

:03:40.:03:45.

of the blue from a pupil that apparently was alleged to have been

:03:46.:03:51.

doing very well. This is, according to reports, this 15`year`old pupil

:03:52.:03:54.

has been arrested and not yet charged, but he was from a

:03:55.:03:56.

middle`class family and doing well in his exams, perhaps a bit of a

:03:57.:04:01.

loner in the school, but we do not know the full truth of that yet.

:04:02.:04:09.

This was an attack by one pupil, this was not like the head teacher

:04:10.:04:16.

who was killed outside of school gates in 1995 who was breaking up an

:04:17.:04:21.

attack between pupils, was stabbed in the process. This was an attack

:04:22.:04:26.

launched against teacher and buy one pupil. It is profoundly shocking. ``

:04:27.:04:35.

against a teacher by one pupil. We will wait for the police

:04:36.:04:39.

investigation on this. Let's go to the sun. Max Clifford is guilty of

:04:40.:04:53.

eight sex attacks. `` The Sun. Those with contracts with him, they are

:04:54.:04:57.

moving away from him. Simon Cowell is one of them. This is a story

:04:58.:05:02.

dominating the papers, The Sun has an excuse of line, `` exclusive

:05:03.:05:10.

line. Simon Cowell is the first person to fire him in the wake of

:05:11.:05:14.

these guilty verdicts. It remains to be seen who else will do the same,

:05:15.:05:23.

and follow suit. It is the sort of risky thing to do. If you hire Max

:05:24.:05:27.

Clifford as your publicist, he knows where all the skeletons are buried,

:05:28.:05:31.

and all of your guilty secrets. Is it a wise thing to do? So soon?

:05:32.:05:38.

Nonetheless, this is the action Simon Cowell has taken. I don't

:05:39.:05:43.

think he has a choice after this. It will be the first in a long list of

:05:44.:05:48.

clients to distance themselves from Max Clifford. It is interesting,

:05:49.:05:55.

this is your newspaper, Emily, and either, you as well, you are an

:05:56.:06:04.

entertainment reporter `` Eva. It is difficult for the red tops, they

:06:05.:06:08.

have had close dealings with him over the years. He had a hotline to

:06:09.:06:12.

most tabloid editors. He was the king of kiss and tell. If someone

:06:13.:06:16.

had a story, the first person they would call was Max Clifford, and

:06:17.:06:20.

then he would call the tabloid editors. He had a strong and close

:06:21.:06:25.

relationship with them going back decades. The interesting thing for

:06:26.:06:32.

me with this story is that I think most of the general public are aware

:06:33.:06:35.

of Max Clifford as the king of kiss and tell. I do not know how well it

:06:36.:06:46.

resonates with them. He is a public figure. But he is not an a list.

:06:47.:06:54.

Really? Not really. But inexperience? In journalism, but...

:06:55.:07:04.

He was the silver head figure behind the starlet. `` silver haired.

:07:05.:07:13.

Leading the kiss and tell. You are defending your front page? I have

:07:14.:07:17.

two, he is famous enough to merit any tabloid front page. He made a

:07:18.:07:24.

living defending such people in his position `` too. But now he has

:07:25.:07:33.

become the story. He is a story in itself. Let's go on to the

:07:34.:07:38.

Guardian, a cross`party campaign to brand UKIP as racists. This

:07:39.:07:44.

aggressive move comes as there is an anti` Europe move put at 30%. The

:07:45.:07:49.

European elections are coming up and made the 22nd, the polls are putting

:07:50.:07:58.

UKIP first, people are fed up `` the 22nd of May. People are fed up with

:07:59.:08:05.

EU laws and immigration, it is a huge issue, Farage has tapped into

:08:06.:08:09.

this. But in the last week, has unravelled slightly. UKIP members

:08:10.:08:15.

are saying unsavoury things, and some are being kicked out. Now there

:08:16.:08:18.

is a campaign, a cross`party campaign, and they are going to

:08:19.:08:26.

contemn the party as" racist". It is a bold tactic. It is not racism

:08:27.:08:31.

necessarily towards blacks and Asians, but your road races. Yes,

:08:32.:08:36.

you saw these billboards launched by UKIP last week ``euro`racism. I

:08:37.:08:48.

think it is a patronising campaign. It is well`intentioned and

:08:49.:08:53.

well`meaning. This one with UKIP? Yes, this cross`party campaign, most

:08:54.:08:56.

people are intelligent enough to make up their own mind about what

:08:57.:09:00.

they think of UKIP and what they are and to be stand for. `` and what

:09:01.:09:09.

they stand for. More stories have emerged about their policies. I do

:09:10.:09:12.

not think people need a cross`party campaign. For me, it comes across as

:09:13.:09:16.

desperate for the parties to have to get together. But they are desperate

:09:17.:09:20.

because you taking votes from all of them. But if you beat people over

:09:21.:09:27.

the head and say they are racist, don't vote for them, people are

:09:28.:09:30.

already disillusioned by the main parties, which is why they turned

:09:31.:09:34.

UKIP in the first place. This is why there is this reverse effect in

:09:35.:09:36.

pushing people to vote for them in the first place. It harks back to

:09:37.:09:42.

David Cameron 's attack describing them as fruitcakes and loons, that

:09:43.:09:48.

backfired. Exactly. Now they are going to UKIP. They have to be kept

:09:49.:09:54.

not to alienate their own. `` have to be careful not to alienate. Let's

:09:55.:10:01.

go to the times, this is a test to predict those at cancer. There is a

:10:02.:10:06.

tipping point in the battle against a whole range of cancers. More

:10:07.:10:09.

people are now surviving them dying as a result of the disease. ``than.

:10:10.:10:18.

It seems there is an easy way to deal with some male cancers? Yes,

:10:19.:10:23.

there is a simple blood test back and predict the risk of cancers in

:10:24.:10:31.

some older men, some men with a common defect in their white blood

:10:32.:10:35.

cells are more likely to die from cancer than those without the

:10:36.:10:38.

defect. There is a new study showing that half the people diagnosed with

:10:39.:10:41.

cancer survive for at least ten years compared to just a quarter in

:10:42.:10:47.

the 1970s. It is all gaining traction. It is a great

:10:48.:10:51.

breakthrough. We know people, we all do, we have lost friends and family

:10:52.:10:58.

members. To read a story that says 50% people can survive cancer, that

:10:59.:11:02.

is fantastic. It is amazing news. That is the story on the front page

:11:03.:11:07.

of the daily Telegraph. Richard Nixon, I think it was, in the early

:11:08.:11:13.

1970s, it was him who declared a war on cancer. It was a similar

:11:14.:11:20.

thing... He believed if America focused all their attentions on

:11:21.:11:24.

this, they could beat it within a decade or so. That did not happen.

:11:25.:11:28.

Clearly. Why is it only now that they seem to be getting on top of

:11:29.:11:34.

this? It takes time, there is a lot of research and element going on

:11:35.:11:37.

behind the scenes. There is a lot of awareness, for people to recognise

:11:38.:11:43.

early signs. It is heartening to know that it is no longer... In no

:11:44.:11:48.

longer has to be a death sentence. Decades ago, you would hear the

:11:49.:11:54.

C`word, and it would be a automatic death sentence. Now they are saying

:11:55.:12:02.

that women with breast cancer have a 78% survival rate, and men with

:12:03.:12:08.

prostate cancer have an 80% chance. Whereas years ago, it was only 25%

:12:09.:12:13.

rates of survival. Millions has been pumped into research. And it is

:12:14.:12:19.

finally... Yes. It seems to be bearing fruit. On the front of the

:12:20.:12:23.

daily Telegraph as well, a lesson for BBC chiefs in unconscious bias.

:12:24.:12:35.

Indeed. I hope that does not refer to this programme! Not tonight!

:12:36.:12:42.

There has been a huge study of the BBC current affairs output, the

:12:43.:12:45.

results of this will come out this week. We have had some tasters of

:12:46.:12:51.

what may be in the offing. This is a piece which talks of how senior

:12:52.:12:58.

staff have been taken by unconscious bias. There is the perception that

:12:59.:13:03.

those who do hiring and firing will be hiring those who like themselves,

:13:04.:13:07.

who look and sound like themselves. Normally, white and middle`aged men.

:13:08.:13:11.

There seems to be a will, according to this piece, to change that. It is

:13:12.:13:17.

important. People would think, does that really happen? Does it really

:13:18.:13:23.

go on? I think so. It is not a conscious thing, this is the

:13:24.:13:27.

problem. No one goes out of their way not to hire a certain person

:13:28.:13:31.

because of their gender or their race, but I think people working in

:13:32.:13:35.

the media are busy and it is hectic. It is not something that

:13:36.:13:39.

necessarily occurs to them. This is why I think things like this are

:13:40.:13:42.

important, to say, actually, we had to shake things up a bit. So anyone

:13:43.:13:47.

watching the programme tonight shouldn't be for? This is the first

:13:48.:13:54.

time we have been on! It is, actually! This comes from James

:13:55.:13:58.

Harding, the head of news at the BBC. He is very forward thinking.

:13:59.:14:03.

This is a problem for all big corporations. It seems to be a

:14:04.:14:09.

trendy thing. It is done by a lot of corporations. The BBC are taking it

:14:10.:14:15.

on board. It not trendy, it is long overdue. Finally, someone... We have

:14:16.:14:23.

heard about gender and inequality. It has got a lot of attention and

:14:24.:14:28.

things are finally changing. You do not hear a lot about race and

:14:29.:14:35.

diversity. Lenny Henry has been making some noise in this area. What

:14:36.:14:41.

is interesting in these campaigns, these campaigns have been outside of

:14:42.:14:49.

the BBC. They say it is not looking so good. From the inside, no one

:14:50.:14:55.

is... It is not an issue. You don't realise until someone from the

:14:56.:15:00.

outside says it is an issue. It is an unconscious bias. The fact it is

:15:01.:15:06.

noticed now is fantastic. As we said, don't be folded you are

:15:07.:15:10.

watching the programme. Thank you for helping us. `` do not be foaled.

:15:11.:15:17.

Stay with us, at the top of the hour we will have the situation in Leeds.

:15:18.:15:29.

`` more on the situation in Leeds. `` do not be fooled. Now, the latest

:15:30.:15:38.

sports. Hello and welcome to Sportsday, I'm

:15:39.:15:43.

John Watson. On the way tonight: Arsenal seize control of fourth in

:15:44.:15:47.

the race for Champions League Football next

:15:48.:15:48.

No need to wait to see what's in the papers - tune in for a lively and informed conversation about the next day's headlines. With Clive Myrie.
