American football fans coming up after the papers.

:00:00.:00:13.

Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers

:00:14.:00:16.

With me are Caroline Frost, Entertainment Editor

:00:17.:00:25.

at the Huffington Post, and the Parliamentary journalist Tony Grew.

:00:26.:00:30.

The FT has a story we've been covering here

:00:31.:00:41.

on BBC News this evening, saying Amazon is to open a High Street book

:00:42.:00:48.

shop in a move the paper describes as "Poacher turns

:00:49.:00:51.

shopkeeper". TheExpress says walking just 30 minutes a day is the best

:00:52.:00:57.

way to shed the pounds and keep them off.

:00:58.:01:00.

The Daily Telegraph says town hall officials who abuse phone

:01:01.:01:02.

and email snooping powers will face up to two years in prison.

:01:03.:01:05.

The Guardian leads with the news that junior doctors are to

:01:06.:01:08.

be offered an 11% pay rise as part of a package of concessions to stop

:01:09.:01:12.

The Metro has the same top story, saying the British Medical

:01:13.:01:16.

Association is sceptical and is demanding more information.

:01:17.:01:20.

Details about the death of Robin Williams lead the Mirror -

:01:21.:01:23.

with the actor's wife saying he killed himself because he was

:01:24.:01:25.

The Guardian first. Jeremy Hunt is offering 11% to junior doctors. This

:01:26.:01:49.

is a last chance saloon. To reach a compromise and to head off strike

:01:50.:01:53.

action as we are going to the crucial period of the winter and

:01:54.:01:58.

Christmas period when services absolutely will be at a premium.

:01:59.:02:02.

Tony, it sounds like a large pay rise, is there a catch? The BMA say

:02:03.:02:09.

they are sceptical. We do not know the full details, the Department of

:02:10.:02:13.

Health will release them tomorrow. Headline figure is 11%. The dispute

:02:14.:02:20.

is about a complicated top-up system to the basic pay. Around 40%, 50% of

:02:21.:02:25.

money junior doctors get is based on things like the hours they have been

:02:26.:02:30.

on call and responsibilities, Jeremy Hunt wants to get rid of the banding

:02:31.:02:36.

system. So an 11% pay rise is 10% more than any other public sector

:02:37.:02:39.

worker is being offered. And you wonder what the reaction the others

:02:40.:02:45.

would be. Exactly. I am not sure this will work. What the Health

:02:46.:02:50.

Secretary wants to avoid is a strike and junior. Is bringing the NHS to

:02:51.:02:58.

get sneeze. As winter is looming. Or I see on my own social media feed is

:02:59.:03:02.

enormous amounts of sympathetic postings to the doctors. We have

:03:03.:03:08.

seen this thing with Tube drivers in London which is very metro centric.

:03:09.:03:12.

But with something like doctors, everybody reaches out. We have also

:03:13.:03:19.

had the doctors and nurses do not get rewarded sufficiently so when

:03:20.:03:22.

something like this happens, it does reach everybody. It is a golden rule

:03:23.:03:28.

of politics, do not pick fights with doctors and nurses because

:03:29.:03:31.

politicians will not win. We will see what happens. I quit three, when

:03:32.:03:36.

they thought it could not get worse, it just has. We had diesel emissions

:03:37.:03:46.

six months ago and is now they have come forward and they are trying to

:03:47.:03:52.

handle the PR desperately and they say it does look as though they

:03:53.:03:57.

could also have been shifting the figures on the CO2 emissions and

:03:58.:04:00.

fuel consumption. And petrol engines for the first time. Diesel engines

:04:01.:04:06.

and now petrol. It is an interesting story. Thinking about the massive

:04:07.:04:10.

damage to the reputation and according to this report, the people

:04:11.:04:15.

in charge of VW said between ten and 20 employees have caused this level

:04:16.:04:22.

of reputational damage. It is about the nature of reputation and if we

:04:23.:04:27.

think about VW before the scandal, German engineering, efficient. Now

:04:28.:04:31.

that has been blown out of the water. But much more importantly is

:04:32.:04:36.

pollution. If these tests have been pollution. If these tests have been

:04:37.:04:42.

fixed so cars that do not meet efficiency standards have been

:04:43.:04:44.

driving around on the roads belching out fumes we have been breathing

:04:45.:04:50.

again, it is a serious public health issue. To be fair to VW, the Chief

:04:51.:04:55.

Executive has said this is their own digging. From the start, you says, I

:04:56.:04:59.

have pushed hard for the relentless and comprehensive clarification of

:05:00.:05:04.

events, we will. At nothing and nobody. It sounds like a mission to

:05:05.:05:10.

unveil wrongdoing. Is that a PR exercise? This is the new boss who

:05:11.:05:15.

has been handed a bag of spanners literally. This is probably the only

:05:16.:05:22.

thing on his desk. All projects at VW I guess have been at least

:05:23.:05:28.

part... They have to get to the bottom of it. It makes people think

:05:29.:05:32.

twice about dyeing what they would think is traditionally a VW, like a

:05:33.:05:40.

golf. And suddenly... Clearing out the stables. Train to restore the

:05:41.:05:45.

reputation will not protect them from the series of lawsuits it could

:05:46.:05:49.

face from consumers and people breathing in the air so the story is

:05:50.:05:54.

not going to get better. Not a great story for the Inland Revenue. Half

:05:55.:05:59.

of calls to the taxman go without being responded. Reputational

:06:00.:06:05.

damage. Why do they not answer the phone? Nobody will be falling over

:06:06.:06:10.

with sympathy for anything to do with the taxman. But this feels very

:06:11.:06:16.

familiar. We know that if we are the taxman 50p, they will be on the

:06:17.:06:20.

phone and they have our attention and vice versa. It is to hear that

:06:21.:06:27.

if there is other modelling, this is about filling in the form correctly

:06:28.:06:32.

so you might get benefits once a year, and that will become a bit of

:06:33.:06:38.

a model. This is a report from the Public Accounts Committee that has

:06:39.:06:42.

used vicious language but it points out the difference between the

:06:43.:06:45.

private and public sector. The private sector is much better,

:06:46.:06:49.

relatively, adds doing with large volumes of calls and customers

:06:50.:06:56.

concerned. But seriously, the Telegraph says millions could have

:06:57.:06:59.

filled in tax reforms incorrectly because HMRC fails to answer calls.

:07:00.:07:05.

But the Chancellor, this could be toxic. At a time when you impose

:07:06.:07:11.

significant cuts on working families, the fact your own

:07:12.:07:14.

department does not appear to efficiently be able to raise taxes

:07:15.:07:18.

is also a serious political issue. The Financial Times Read on that. We

:07:19.:07:23.

will talk about this interesting story about Amazon. Of all things,

:07:24.:07:29.

they have opened a good old-fashioned book shop. Reinventing

:07:30.:07:35.

the wheel. It does make me chuckle. They are opening it in Seattle

:07:36.:07:42.

weather is already a significant number of millionaires and

:07:43.:07:46.

billionaires. This was covered in a magazine about ten years ago. People

:07:47.:07:54.

are retiring at 35, 40 at -- with millions in the bank and starting

:07:55.:07:57.

wonderful community projects around this North West corner. And they get

:07:58.:08:01.

the benefit of these lovely communities. I worry about the rest

:08:02.:08:05.

of the world where Independent book-sellers have died a quick death

:08:06.:08:11.

and we have only looked at one place to thank for that. It is an

:08:12.:08:15.

indication people still love physical books and they do not just

:08:16.:08:22.

want to get books online. It reminds me of video killed the radio star.

:08:23.:08:31.

Books clearly not been killed. This is just Amazon putting their toe in

:08:32.:08:35.

the water and they may open more. It is also about the difference between

:08:36.:08:39.

online and High Street. That is one of the things Amazon is interested

:08:40.:08:46.

in, how do people behave differently in a shop? It is a very different

:08:47.:08:50.

browsing experience. It will be interesting what Amazon found out. I

:08:51.:08:57.

love the quote at the end that same is -- that says, a man from

:08:58.:09:04.

Waterstones says he hopes it falls flat on its face! So no love lost.

:09:05.:09:10.

Candy Crush Saga in a six billion dollars deal. Who are any of these

:09:11.:09:20.

people? It is astonishing. I see in my social media feed and anybody who

:09:21.:09:23.

invites me to play a game, I see that as a reason to block them, if

:09:24.:09:31.

not permanently. 474 million users feel differently, hence the huge

:09:32.:09:35.

numbers mentioned. That is why you are not Li Na. It must be. It is a

:09:36.:09:42.

huge sale. When I saw the front page of the Financial Times, it struck me

:09:43.:09:47.

these are companies that did not exist ten years ago, never mind

:09:48.:09:50.

being on the front page to talk about these huge deals. It is

:09:51.:09:54.

another example of the way the internet has transformed areas of

:09:55.:09:58.

this is such as online retailing that did not exist. For now! Amazon

:09:59.:10:06.

might bring us all back to old village squares, hopefully!

:10:07.:10:10.

Finally, a sad story about Robin Williams, a great actor who many

:10:11.:10:16.

millions of fans adored. The story of his suicide, a tragedy. The

:10:17.:10:21.

Mirror suggesting it was not depression, it was dementia. He had

:10:22.:10:26.

been suffering from depression for many years, it was well-documented.

:10:27.:10:30.

His widow has given her first extended interview about the sad

:10:31.:10:34.

circumstances of his death last year and she has revealed he had been

:10:35.:10:38.

previously diagnosed with Parkinson's disease and he was

:10:39.:10:43.

undergoing neurocognitive testing and was due to visit a presidential

:10:44.:10:47.

faculty to be tested and she said that he was looking at another three

:10:48.:10:54.

years of life and they would be difficult and he must have felt his

:10:55.:10:58.

options were getting more limited. It does not make the story better

:10:59.:11:01.

but it sheds light on the tragic circumstances. And it rings the bell

:11:02.:11:06.

that mental health is very important. We will talk again in one

:11:07.:11:09.

hour. Thank you. Back at half eleven for another

:11:10.:11:21.

look at the stories making the news tomorrow.

:11:22.:11:25.
