Hello. This is BBC News. We'll be taking a look at tomorrow mornings

:00:00.:00:13.

papers in a moment. First the headlines: The search for the

:00:14.:00:16.

identity of the man who beheaded journalist James Foley is on as

:00:17.:00:19.

British intelligence agencies try to track him down. It's believed that

:00:20.:00:23.

three UK men are amongst those holding foreigners in Syria. ?80

:00:24.:00:30.

millions for his release ` that's the ransom Islamic State militants

:00:31.:00:35.

demanded for James Foley's freedom. The US says they post a long`term

:00:36.:00:46.

threat. We should expect ice is to regroup and stage more offences. The

:00:47.:00:54.

US military involvement is not over. Tests are being carried out on the

:00:55.:00:57.

body of a man in Ireland who died after developing Ebola like

:00:58.:01:00.

symptoms. He recently returned from a visit to Africa. In America, a

:01:01.:01:03.

doctor and an aid worker who contracted Ebola in Liberia have

:01:04.:01:05.

recovered after being treated with an experimental drug. Here, GCSE

Sportsday. Hello and welcome to our look ahead

:01:49.:02:04.

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

:02:05.:02:07.

broadcaster Jennie Bond and the political journalist Rob Merrick.

:02:08.:02:13.

Thank you both for coming in this evening. Let's have a quick look at

:02:14.:02:18.

some of the front pages. Like it's English counterpart the Scottish

:02:19.:02:20.

Daily Mail leads with comments by fellow hostage ` Didier Francois `

:02:21.:02:24.

who was released earlier this year. He says he "roughly" recognises the

:02:25.:02:27.

man behind the beheading as someone they would call "John". The Daily

:02:28.:02:34.

Telegraph says the net is closing in on the Jihadist who killed Foley, `

:02:35.:02:40.

with the SAS on standby. The Times says twice as many British Muslims

:02:41.:02:43.

have joined the fight in Syria compared to joining the British

:02:44.:02:46.

different lead ` the Bank of different lead ` the Bank of

:02:47.:02:49.

America's record settlement of $17 billion ` dominates their front

:02:50.:02:55.

pages. It's as a result of the misselling of toxic mortgages that

:02:56.:02:58.

led to the banking crisis of 2008Back on the murder of James

:02:59.:03:01.

Foley in the Guardian ` that leads with a call from MPs to toughen

:03:02.:03:08.

domestic laws on extremism. The Scotsman has a rallying call from

:03:09.:03:11.

Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond at the last Holyrood session before

:03:12.:03:17.

the referendum. And finally, the Sun leads with an image of former

:03:18.:03:19.

footballer Paul Gascoigne and his ongoing problems with alcohol. Let's

:03:20.:03:32.

begin. We will start this hour with the Daily Mail and the headline,

:03:33.:03:41.

sadistic reign of jihadi. James Foley, we have been featuring the

:03:42.:03:50.

story. This story dominating so many papers. They are all taking a

:03:51.:03:55.

slightly different angles on it. This is the most interesting, to my

:03:56.:04:02.

mind. It is the most actual or stop they have talked to former captives

:04:03.:04:10.

held alongside Mr Foley and the image one gets of this chap called

:04:11.:04:17.

John, I should not call him a chap, this monster. We are learning he

:04:18.:04:22.

beat up James Foley and the others. Mr Foley was forced to stand in a

:04:23.:04:33.

crucifix pose against the wall. This jihadi John probably spoke to Mr

:04:34.:04:39.

Foley's parents via Skype which really is chilling. The more you

:04:40.:04:46.

learn about the time in captivity, the worst it seems to be. This is

:04:47.:04:52.

definitely the best. We can agree on that. Hostages are reluctant to go

:04:53.:04:59.

on the record but clearly, the Daily Mail have spoken to former hostages

:05:00.:05:05.

and it has given it its power. We know James Foley received

:05:06.:05:10.

distressing e`mails not long before the act. It is interesting, they are

:05:11.:05:18.

concentrating less on who we use, the ID which has been fascinating

:05:19.:05:23.

much of the media. And it is not just him. There are other Brits

:05:24.:05:30.

there. It is believed that the narrator, was not actually the

:05:31.:05:36.

killer. I have not seen the video but... It is not clear the narrator,

:05:37.:05:45.

as he is called, it is the killer. The Times have a different angle.

:05:46.:05:52.

Hundreds more UK Muslims choose jihad over the UK army. If that is

:05:53.:06:02.

accurate, then it is devastating. We just thought it was confusing,

:06:03.:06:08.

bizarre, perplexing. Why on earth they want to have this headline is

:06:09.:06:16.

not clear. Is it the shock value? It is sinister. What are they trying to

:06:17.:06:21.

say about Muslims who do not join the Army? I have not join the army.

:06:22.:06:28.

We would not quite clear what they were trying to say. The figures are

:06:29.:06:36.

quite tiny as well. 220 Muslim joined the army and twice as many

:06:37.:06:44.

have travelled to Syria and Iraq. Its value is lessened by the facts.

:06:45.:06:50.

We were talking about an hour ago about the different angles. The

:06:51.:06:55.

shock of this story seems to dominate. The hunt is on. You can

:06:56.:07:01.

see that the newspapers will continue on this hunt for John, just

:07:02.:07:10.

like the security services. That is the number one aim. That will happen

:07:11.:07:18.

at some time. With Facebook and social media, surely his name will

:07:19.:07:23.

come out. Somebody in Britain will know who we are is. Downing Street

:07:24.:07:30.

is not just about jihadi John. There are 500 Britons out there. For them

:07:31.:07:37.

it is the bulk of the people out there rather than just one

:07:38.:07:42.

individual. Let's go on to domestic use. Staying with The Times, fears

:07:43.:07:46.

overvalued medics trained for two years. The first paragraph: patients

:07:47.:07:54.

will be treated by less qualified dog is. The government plans to

:07:55.:08:00.

relieve pressure on the NHS. `` doctors. The papers are full of

:08:01.:08:10.

scare stories. If I was confronted by someone clearly less qualified, I

:08:11.:08:15.

would feel like a second`class it is an stop however, there is a lot of

:08:16.:08:18.

Administration work that could be done. Admitting and discharging, the

:08:19.:08:27.

ordering of tests. That could regard by someone with limited experience.

:08:28.:08:34.

And deciding on treatment? It seems to go a bit too far there. I wonder

:08:35.:08:40.

if I should draw the parallel with police. We get different systems.

:08:41.:08:53.

Teaching for example. Most people would agree they are very valuable.

:08:54.:08:59.

50 years it has been going on in the States. It does not seem to have

:09:00.:09:06.

been any great crisis. Later on in the story, the treaty should medical

:09:07.:09:12.

Association is cautious about the change. They say it could be useful

:09:13.:09:17.

if done properly. It sounds to me they could at least see the merit of

:09:18.:09:28.

the story. Don't tell me cost will come into it, surely not! Today has

:09:29.:09:37.

been G CSC discovery Day. What is different this year is the fact

:09:38.:09:44.

there is a new secretary, a new minister in charge of education. ``

:09:45.:09:54.

G CSC. The results are a direct result of what Michael Gove

:09:55.:10:00.

implemented when he was there. His legacy, boys are falling behind

:10:01.:10:10.

girls. Basically, because the method of examining people has changed, it

:10:11.:10:15.

has become more rigourous, the greater fall, particularly in

:10:16.:10:22.

English. Some people would dispute that. There has been less course

:10:23.:10:31.

work and left attributed to it. `` less. That loading towards the end

:10:32.:10:35.

of an exam does suit some are not others. Supporters would say that

:10:36.:10:42.

life is a bit like that. There was always going to be this debate.

:10:43.:10:48.

Intelligence, achievement, through assessment all by some hot housing

:10:49.:10:55.

where we know some people will not perform. The debate will go on. For

:10:56.:11:01.

the children who got worst results today, it is devastating. I know

:11:02.:11:12.

some head teachers were saying they were shocked by them. They have an

:11:13.:11:16.

example who got ten and then suddenly they go down to a D or an E

:11:17.:11:25.

in English. Some things seem to have gone wrong. Can we not just

:11:26.:11:31.

concentrate on educating our children instead of examining them

:11:32.:11:35.

from three years old. It has two stop! Plans afoot. On to the

:11:36.:11:45.

Scotsman. We will not go with the go out and win message for Alex

:11:46.:11:53.

Salmond. Instead it is Ebola alert in Ireland after a man dies.

:11:54.:12:00.

Obviously, a great deal of concern it might have reached the shores of

:12:01.:12:08.

Ireland. This is a real scare story. This is frightening. Cannot imagine

:12:09.:12:13.

why this is not all over the papers. It says the chances are fairly

:12:14.:12:18.

remote. Extremely low, it says. Of it being passed on. A person would

:12:19.:12:23.

have to have very close contact. Clearly, this guy came back on a

:12:24.:12:27.

plane and that is pretty close contact. It is terrifying. I was

:12:28.:12:33.

surprised not to see it in more papers. Scotland is closer to

:12:34.:12:40.

Ireland and maybe that brings it closer to home. The transmission is

:12:41.:12:48.

extremely low. But getting in contact with the people that were

:12:49.:12:54.

close to this person is clearly important. It is all about the panic

:12:55.:12:59.

stopping it coming back here. Tracing people who have been in

:13:00.:13:04.

contact could stop the spread. I fear that these last two stories

:13:05.:13:21.

will bring out the bad in Jenny. You are not quite sure of this is true?

:13:22.:13:25.

I could not believe that food bills tumble. Absolutely not, as far as I

:13:26.:13:32.

am concerned. Everybody is complaining. Apparently it is backed

:13:33.:13:38.

up. Because of this vicious price war. Morrison says it will half its

:13:39.:13:45.

underlying profit. Well, I do not shop at expensive supermarket at all

:13:46.:13:56.

but my bills are extra, `` astronomical. Supermarket was a big

:13:57.:14:04.

business. They do not do my own shopping, that idea is outrageous. I

:14:05.:14:10.

look forward to receiving the letter. There is evidence that.

:14:11.:14:19.

Supermarkets having to react and bring down prices. Most would see it

:14:20.:14:29.

as a good news story. Presumably if his on the front of the FT because

:14:30.:14:36.

it is a bad news story for some. A story I no we are role keen to get

:14:37.:14:44.

to. Page three of the mail. By a powerful vacuum cleaner now. This

:14:45.:14:48.

combines everything from household chores to having a go at Europe. Who

:14:49.:14:54.

does the hoovering in the bond house? Roger. Isn't that the

:14:55.:15:04.

cleaner? He is a robot. He is a new acquisition. A cheap one. He is

:15:05.:15:11.

absolutely excellent. This is another true scare story. Honestly,

:15:12.:15:17.

if you cannot have your 1600 watt vacuum because Europe says no. Why

:15:18.:15:25.

isn't saying no? It is a climate controlled thing. That really, I

:15:26.:15:31.

think we should be allowed to buy whatever Hoover we want. It is a

:15:32.:15:40.

delicious image of everybody fighting for the last few powerful

:15:41.:15:47.

Hoover 's. This is like the lightbulbs. So we cannot see. I

:15:48.:15:53.

suppose we cannot see the dust any more so it is good. He with the main

:15:54.:16:02.

Hoover must in your household? We will leave that one aside for the

:16:03.:16:08.

moment. He has vetoed the last two stories! The power of the Hoover

:16:09.:16:16.

does not reflect how well it picks up the dad. It is all about the

:16:17.:16:21.

transmission. Obviously, they are arguing that.

:16:22.:16:40.

They say the labels could be misleading because they didn't take

:16:41.:16:45.

into account the cost of consumables, like vacuum bags.

:16:46.:16:51.

That's a good point. He is a very clever man. That joke from the

:16:52.:16:59.

Edinburgh Fringe Festival, he got rid of his Hoover because it was

:17:00.:17:03.

collecting dust. Yes, there were a lot of good 1`liners. You can't

:17:04.:17:08.

claim credibility for that. That's it for The Papers this hour. Thank

:17:09.:17:12.

you to my guests. Stay with us here on BBC News. At midnight, we'll have

:17:13.:17:15.

the very latest on the attempts to identify the jihadist, who was

:17:16.:17:18.

filmed beheading the American journalist James Foley. Now it's

:17:19.:17:30.

time for Sportsday. Hello. I'm John Acres, welcome to

:17:31.:17:39.

Sportsday. Heading to the Women's World Cup. England book their place

:17:40.:17:45.

in the finals by thrashing Wales. Malky Mackay apologises for sending

:17:46.:17:48.

two messages of a "very regrettable" nature, following allegations he

exchanged discriminatory texts with a former
