embarrassment he has caused English cricket. We have an exclusive

:00:00.:00:00.

interview. That is all in sports day in 15 minutes after The Papers.

:00:00.:00:17.

Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what The Papers will bring us

:00:18.:00:24.

tomorrow. I'm joined by Dan from the newer Times and Tim Montgomery,

:00:25.:00:28.

columnist from the times. That keep to the front pages first of all.

:00:29.:00:34.

Starting with a nod to Dan and with the international New York Times,

:00:35.:00:39.

they are, of course, taking as their lead the morning of David Bowie,

:00:40.:00:45.

paying homage to him. Then on to the Metro, the stars look very different

:00:46.:00:55.

today. Ashes to Ashes is the David Bowie quote chosen by the i

:00:56.:00:59.

tomorrow. It is illustrated with the wry smile from the late start.

:01:00.:01:05.

Another intriguing image of the thin White Duke leads the Guardian which,

:01:06.:01:09.

like many of The Papers tomorrow devote his front page to him. As

:01:10.:01:14.

well as joining contributed to David Bowie at the top the express also

:01:15.:01:19.

covering a story of hope for sufferers of back pain, suggesting a

:01:20.:01:23.

walk a day could be the answer. Moving on to the Telegraph, they are

:01:24.:01:26.

dealing with the story that junior doctors could be called off the

:01:27.:01:29.

picket line during the strike tomorrow am that is if it is

:01:30.:01:32.

considered that the lives of patients are at risk. In the Times,

:01:33.:01:38.

finally, a call for every child to have a so-called Tiger mum to push

:01:39.:01:45.

them to success. That's to get closer look. Only one place to start

:01:46.:01:49.

and that is with the death of David Bowie. The Guardian we have taken as

:01:50.:01:57.

our starting image. They say David Bowie defined by an allusive,

:01:58.:02:01.

unignorable star quality. Everybody has been trying to define that

:02:02.:02:06.

today. I think what is remarkable about him is his musical dexterity.

:02:07.:02:11.

He combined pop with rock and transformed into jazz and cabaret

:02:12.:02:18.

and long before Madonna or Lady Gaga were born, he was this gender bender

:02:19.:02:25.

that galvanised the world. For that galvanised the world. For

:02:26.:02:29.

people who felt like outcasts, his swagger as an outcast made them feel

:02:30.:02:33.

like he was one of them and I think that is partly by the -- people feed

:02:34.:02:39.

his death so strongly. It is interesting that the Guardian chose

:02:40.:02:43.

this image which is much more simple image. None of the make-up or

:02:44.:02:47.

costume, one of the Glam. It is almost asking us who was David

:02:48.:02:52.

Bowie. There were amazing scenes in Brixton tonight of revellers singing

:02:53.:02:57.

his songs. This man was so part of the lives of people for so long I

:02:58.:03:02.

think we do want to understand him. It is almost like when Diana died.

:03:03.:03:10.

This reaction to him now is very real, very emotional. Some people

:03:11.:03:15.

are saying it is people of a certain generation for whom he was the

:03:16.:03:20.

soundtrack to their lives, particularly their teenage years.

:03:21.:03:23.

This book to a commentator who beam at the moment on top of pubs where

:03:24.:03:28.

it blew them away to see that. He had a whole different look. The

:03:29.:03:33.

suggestion seems to be that he has touched far more people than just

:03:34.:03:37.

the people who would have been a flood generation. He was there at

:03:38.:03:42.

important events in history. A moving tribute from the German

:03:43.:03:46.

foreign office today remembering the fact that he lived in Berlin for a

:03:47.:03:50.

while when he was recovering from some of his drug problems. He

:03:51.:03:55.

performed on the western side of the Berlin Wall when the country was

:03:56.:04:01.

still divided and he could hear East Germans who couldn't watch the

:04:02.:04:04.

concert but they were singing his lyrics on the other side. That

:04:05.:04:09.

really moved him. There are so many episodes when it seemed that he was

:04:10.:04:14.

part of the lives of of people. Even the younger generation who think

:04:15.:04:19.

Madonna or Lady Gaga pioneered this fusion of music, theatre, fashion

:04:20.:04:23.

and sexual ambiguity, David Boyd was doing these decades before and even

:04:24.:04:26.

though younger people do not realise that all the music they listen to

:04:27.:04:30.

close a debt to give it away and that is why people have been saying

:04:31.:04:34.

that arguably he is one of the most important figures since the Beatles.

:04:35.:04:42.

We were shown that it is featuring heavily. He was living in New York,

:04:43.:04:46.

he died in New York. It is running very high. It is a huge global

:04:47.:04:52.

story. He was a New Yorker. He has a play off Broadway at the moment and

:04:53.:04:56.

I think his persona as an outcast has a huge amount of residents in

:04:57.:05:01.

America. His ability to reconstruct himself and to reinvent himself is

:05:02.:05:06.

very American and people are at his house in Central Park laying

:05:07.:05:10.

flowers. There is a real sense that he was one of us. As you talk about

:05:11.:05:16.

that reinvention, let's move on to the front cover of the Metro. They

:05:17.:05:20.

have chosen a different image. A more iconic image but surely as the

:05:21.:05:29.

multifaceted reinvention. It is his ability to reinvent himself. Not

:05:30.:05:32.

every album he produced was a great success. He sold 140 million over

:05:33.:05:37.

the course of his career but not everyone was critically acclaimed.

:05:38.:05:42.

He was never discouraged. He did acting, film producing, financial

:05:43.:05:47.

innovation. Even when he didn't succeed, he kept trying and that the

:05:48.:05:52.

ability to reinvent, but immersion in different cities, London, New

:05:53.:05:57.

York, Berlin, he spent some time to experiment with Buddhism. He was

:05:58.:06:01.

interested in a broad range of arts. That diversity, that really made him

:06:02.:06:09.

the success he was. He shunned being called a rock star, he wanted to be

:06:10.:06:14.

called an artist because he was using different genres. His last

:06:15.:06:20.

album was anticipating his death. He brilliantly Carl Froch 's own death

:06:21.:06:23.

and the way he would be perceived saying I am up in the clouds, I am

:06:24.:06:30.

in heaven. -- he choreographed. It was a brilliant way to go round. If

:06:31.:06:35.

we move on to the financial Times. They want a different angle. They

:06:36.:06:39.

have a lovely picture but they are talking about the rise and fall of

:06:40.:06:43.

David Bowie bonds. Explain the concept. There would be any other

:06:44.:06:53.

paper focusing on that. He was a financial innovator as well as a

:06:54.:06:57.

musical and artistic innovator and he did launch these bonds where he

:06:58.:07:02.

leveraged the future income from his art so he could benefit immediately.

:07:03.:07:09.

He did it at an opportune moment before the internet took off and

:07:10.:07:13.

artists were not able to get the income that he was able to. He got

:07:14.:07:19.

in just in time before the internet and all the downloads that we have

:07:20.:07:22.

now changed the music industry for ever. We could talk about evening

:07:23.:07:30.

but what we are on the FT, let's take a move to the left because

:07:31.:07:34.

their top story is touching on, as they often do, the issue of business

:07:35.:07:39.

and the prospect of a British exit from the EU. This is an important

:07:40.:07:45.

story in which Taylor said they will stay in Britain if the country voted

:07:46.:07:51.

to leave the EU. It is a domestic boon for the no camp and a blow

:07:52.:07:55.

Cameron. It is somewhat surprising given that most of the European car

:07:56.:07:59.

industry operates in euros to the costs of operating in pounds because

:08:00.:08:03.

of transaction costs and other factors would be quite detrimental.

:08:04.:08:10.

This is a real boon for the camp. I agree with what Dan has said. The

:08:11.:08:16.

people who want Britain to stay inside the European Union, their

:08:17.:08:21.

plan is project fear, to say that we may get control of our borders, we

:08:22.:08:26.

might get a lot of the money back that we pay into the EU, but we will

:08:27.:08:30.

be taking a big economic risk. If you have a big international

:08:31.:08:35.

employer, one of the biggest names in the world economy, Toyota, said

:08:36.:08:40.

that if Britain leads the EU, we are committed to Britain, that is a

:08:41.:08:43.

reassuring message for those floating voters who cannot quite

:08:44.:08:48.

decide. Their heart says they want to leave but their head worries.

:08:49.:08:54.

This is reassuring to the head. It seems that Toyota is an outlier and

:08:55.:08:58.

the majority of multinational companies would say they would like

:08:59.:09:05.

Britain to remain in the EU. Toyota may want Britain to remain, that is

:09:06.:09:09.

the majority, but even if they think they would rather that, they are

:09:10.:09:12.

still saying they will not abandon Britain. Reverse onto the daily

:09:13.:09:19.

Telegraph. They have the mesmerising boy dies at the top. It is led by

:09:20.:09:31.

the strike by junior doctors. This is a surprising story sent doctors

:09:32.:09:34.

could be forced back to work hospitals are overstretched. It has

:09:35.0:02:38

the remarkable organ asking the people -- asking the public to

0:02:390:02:38

tripod to become ill which seems on realistic. It is rather worrying. If

0:02:390:02:38

you wake up with a horrible pain or ailment. Do you think there is

0:02:390:02:38

public sympathy because there could be more strikes, this is a dispute

0:02:390:02:38

that has been going on for a long time. One wonders if the public

0:02:390:02:38

understands the intricacies of the debate. I think the public are aware

0:02:390:02:38

of high mortality rates of the sympathetic with the government and

0:02:390:02:38

vision for a seven day National Health Service but doctors, nurses,

0:02:390:02:38

teachers are the most esteemed members of society. I think they

0:02:390:02:38

will have a lot of public sympathy with industrial action. They are

0:02:390:02:38

planning three days of industrial action, I think and the first to

0:02:390:02:38

they are safe with because they will only interfere with non-emergency

0:02:390:02:38

medical procedures, the third day they are saying they will withdraw

0:02:390:02:38

emergency cover. That might be a step too far, even with a

0:02:390:02:38

sympathetic public. The doctors obviously feel very strongly about

0:02:390:02:38

this. The BMA has a history of opposing almost everything,

0:02:390:02:38

including the creation of the NHS, and it medical reform. They are

0:02:390:02:38

slightly stick in the months when it comes to reform, but I think it is

0:02:390:02:38

the third day of action that most imperils their public position. In

0:02:390:02:38

30 seconds, we just want to touch on the news that has proven that the

0:02:390:02:38

head of the environment agency has gone. He was under a lot of

0:02:390:02:38

pressure, wasn't he? This was a remarkable story. The head of the

0:02:390:02:38

environment agency was on vacation in Barbados during the flooding and

0:02:390:02:38

at some point you give an excuse to his wife was from there but she was

0:02:390:02:38

actually from Jamaica. He was in the wrong place at the wrong time. He

0:02:390:02:38

had to pay the political cost. Perhaps it was only a matter of

0:02:390:02:38

time. It is quite a small story which otherwise it might not have

0:02:390:02:38

been. That is it for this hour. Thank you. We will be back at half

0:02:390:02:38

11 and stop plenty more on David Bowie and his death announced today.

0:02:390:02:38

Do stick with this. At 11 we will have more on the global tribute

0:02:390:02:38

pouring in for David Bowie who died in New York aged 69. Coming up next

0:02:390:02:38

it is time for sports day.

0:02:390:02:39
