embarrassment he has caused English cricket. We have an exclusive


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


unignorable star quality. Everybody has been trying to define that


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


He combined pop with rock and transformed into jazz and cabaret


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


soundtrack to their lives, particularly their teenage years.


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


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


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


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


important events in history. A moving tribute from the German


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


of transaction costs and other factors would be quite detrimental.


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


reassuring message for those floating voters who cannot quite


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


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


the majority of multinational companies would say they would like


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


of high mortality rates of the sympathetic with the government and


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


sympathetic public. The doctors obviously feel very strongly about


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


environment agency was on vacation in Barbados during the flooding and


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


it is time for sports day.
