Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be

:00:14.:00:16.

With me are the Political Commentator, Jo Phillips

:00:17.:00:20.

and Benedicte Paviot, who's the UK Correspondent

:00:21.:00:21.

Who Kindly brought me creme caramel for pudding. Jo didn't bring me

:00:22.:00:33.

anything. But she can think about that for next time!

:00:34.:00:37.

The Sunday Express says the Portuguese detective who led

:00:38.:00:39.

attempts to find Madeline McCann will release a new book

:00:40.:00:41.

on the investigation, bringing fresh anguish

:00:42.:00:43.

The Sunday Mail says the BBC will be forbidden

:00:44.:00:46.

to schedule prime time programmes at the same time as its rivals,

:00:47.:00:49.

The Sunday Telegraph also leads with the BBC's Royal Charter,

:00:50.:00:53.

saying the corporation will face more checks

:00:54.:00:54.

That is where we will start, with some BBC navel gazing. Rules to end

:00:55.:01:15.

ITV clash. This is supposedly to give competitors a better, an easier

:01:16.:01:21.

time of it? Yes, this is obviously a well-timed leak ahead of the White

:01:22.:01:26.

Paper on the BBC. Which is due out on May 12th. In which it is expected

:01:27.:01:32.

to renew royal chart hear the runs out this year for eleven years, but

:01:33.:01:39.

in return there are all these, the Mail, you would think there is

:01:40.:01:43.

nothing else going on in the world, there are four pages. I don't know

:01:44.:01:49.

about navel-gazing, but it is BBC bashing. In the daily mail? No? The

:01:50.:02:02.

BBC will be banned from showing popular programmes like Strictly

:02:03.:02:06.

against The Voice. They will have to find another time to show it. If it

:02:07.:02:10.

is that popular, people will watch it. Yes, it is about giving the

:02:11.:02:16.

commercial broadcasters much more, it is about the BBC being perceived

:02:17.:02:21.

to use the licence payers' funding to have an unfair advantage over its

:02:22.:02:28.

rivals. But the licence fee is a privilege and many say it is out of

:02:29.:02:39.

date when we are used to paying for things. If the BBC wants to keep the

:02:40.:02:44.

licence fee, the terms should change. Yes, but you don't then

:02:45.:02:50.

mutilate unfairly, which a lot of these leaked measures seem to be

:02:51.:02:58.

about. But the BBC shouldn't be "aggressively broadcasting or

:02:59.:03:03.

trailing its programmes" so much. Any broadcaster, any company worth

:03:04.:03:08.

their salt will promote things that they have developed. There is even a

:03:09.:03:18.

battle of the bongs, centring on the 10pm news, ITV has invested heavily

:03:19.:03:26.

in a revamp of its News at ten and according to the Mail on Sunday it

:03:27.:03:30.

wants the BBC to move its programme to an earlier slot. A A long time

:03:31.:03:40.

ago the BBC did the 9 o'clock news. In France it is the 8 o'clock news.

:03:41.:03:46.

You either stay in to watch it or go out. The 9 o'clock news was popular.

:03:47.:03:56.

Maybe there is an appetite for it. There a peculiarity, the BBC's

:03:57.:04:01.

programmes shouldn't be too popular or they could be poached. And the

:04:02.:04:07.

quality will be checked. But checked by who? Are we going back to the

:04:08.:04:17.

days of Mary white house. The BBC has programmes for all peoples. Some

:04:18.:04:22.

are duff, some are amazing. But people with watch two programmes at

:04:23.:04:27.

once, because they can record one. It is astonishing what technology

:04:28.:04:33.

does. Nit mail of tuned there is -- in the Mail on Sunday, Mr

:04:34.:04:41.

Whittingdale, who has endured weeks of embarrassing things about his

:04:42.:04:45.

private life is expected to tell the BBC to come clean. An interesting

:04:46.:04:52.

impression from Mr Whittingdale. To come clean about what it pays its

:04:53.:05:00.

presenters. So we won't find the exact pay cheque of every presenter.

:05:01.:05:06.

If that has to happen, who am I to stand in its way. That is enough of

:05:07.:05:18.

BBC chat. Now The Telegraph, PM's Academy deal. We have heard every

:05:19.:05:23.

state school needs to be an Academy. Not everyone is happy. But there are

:05:24.:05:28.

deals for people who don't like it in Conservative constituencies.

:05:29.:05:35.

Although the Telegraph gives its main story to the BBC, sorry, but

:05:36.:05:40.

telling it like it is, there is a paragraph about what the Telegraph

:05:41.:05:50.

called the Prime Minister's deal for rebel and concessions to win over

:05:51.:05:54.

Tory rebels, because they are threatening to kill off his school

:05:55.:05:59.

reforms. But what this paragraph or two or three also tells us is that

:06:00.:06:07.

after Mrs Morgan got heckled, the teachers were so cross they're

:06:08.:06:12.

considering industrial action. We spoke to a head teacher who said she

:06:13.:06:18.

may close her school for a day. And this is is a moderate union, the

:06:19.:06:25.

head teachers' union. So there is a lot of anger. There was a report

:06:26.:06:30.

that schools run by local authorities are doing better than

:06:31.:06:36.

academies. The real rebellions is coming from rural areas, if small

:06:37.:06:41.

schools are not supported by the local authority, they will close.

:06:42.:06:49.

That is of course a lot of Tory MPs. The Sunday telegraph has a story

:06:50.:06:56.

about the anti-Semitism row deepening and Ken Livingstone saying

:06:57.:07:03.

he was sorry if he upset anyone with his comments about you could have

:07:04.:07:08.

predicted where the story would go, the Sunday Telegraph said it has

:07:09.:07:13.

found more examples of anti-Cem Tim. I would have that so, it has had

:07:14.:07:20.

four reporters and there is a full report and an editorial comment, but

:07:21.:07:28.

all we can see on the dossier is one Labour council leader, unknown,

:07:29.:07:36.

unnamed, sharing an anti-Semitic post and Jeremy Corbyn questioning

:07:37.:07:41.

why an anti-Jewish mural should be removed. But the timing couldn't be

:07:42.:07:47.

worse with the local elections and the mayoral elections and Labour

:07:48.:07:52.

being predicted to lose a lot of seats and Ken Livingstone has done

:07:53.:07:56.

it again. You wonder what the impact will be. Which groups will support

:07:57.:08:01.

Labour in spite of this and which will say this is beyond the pale

:08:02.:08:07.

you're not getting my vote? We will find out next Thursday. Speaking to

:08:08.:08:14.

a Labour MP that I will choose not to name that I met professionally

:08:15.:08:21.

last night I will say she... Was concerned about the impact and was

:08:22.:08:26.

planning to go out campaigning in other constituency. This is what

:08:27.:08:31.

people are talking to this MP about on the the doorstep? Or did she not

:08:32.:08:37.

say. I did not get to that. It was, there is a real fear that this will

:08:38.:08:43.

mean that it has turned people off voting Labour. We should mention

:08:44.:08:50.

that in this small story in the Sunday Telegraph, which deserved

:08:51.:08:57.

more front-page analysis, Sarah Pickles, the Government's Special

:08:58.:09:06.

Envoy for post holocaust issues said Jeremy Corbyn has legitimised a

:09:07.:09:09.

strain of anti-Semitism that has been lurking in the shadows of left

:09:10.:09:14.

for some time. Of course, it has been rumbling on. But I have to pick

:09:15.:09:19.

up Ken Livingstone on what he said, I have heard this so many times,

:09:20.:09:23.

particularly in this continualliry and this -- country and this

:09:24.:09:28.

phrasing when you say something outrageous a week before your party,

:09:29.:09:33.

a man who was London mayor twice, that is extraordinary, the first

:09:34.:09:37.

time as an independent candidate. You say if I have caused offence I'm

:09:38.:09:44.

sorry, I think think need to be called out on they're not offering

:09:45.:09:51.

an apology at all. They're saying what whoever was offended, it is

:09:52.:10:00.

that problem. It is hi style. - his style. In the fend it is not about

:10:01.:10:06.

the deed, but you respond to it and there will be people, including many

:10:07.:10:11.

Labour MPs throwing their head in their hands thinking why on earth

:10:12.:10:16.

didn't Jeremy Corbyn deal with this? There is an investigation and an

:10:17.:10:22.

inquiry. So let's see how quickly they come up with something and what

:10:23.:10:27.

the new rules will be to deal with any provocative statements. Now The

:10:28.:10:32.

Independent and we have one of their typical pronlt pages -- front-pages,

:10:33.:10:44.

of course they're online. A burning message to ivory poachers, a huge

:10:45.:10:50.

amount of ivory set alight to end poaching of ivory. How sensible is

:10:51.:10:58.

it to get rid of something valuable and could it make... Other elephants

:10:59.:11:08.

more vulnerable to poaching? When you said symbolic, that is what this

:11:09.:11:16.

is about, a gesture, it is shocking and Independent fantastic

:11:17.:11:20.

photograph, and we have seen the coverage, but it will raise

:11:21.:11:28.

questions as you have done, won't it make people think it is more

:11:29.:11:32.

valuable. Why not raise money wit. And put to it conservation. It could

:11:33.:11:38.

encourage more poaching, because the value will rise. Some

:11:39.:11:41.

conservationists are saying it is a PR stunt. Now the back page of the

:11:42.:11:49.

Sunday Telegraph. This is not a stunt. A miracle. A fabulous

:11:50.:11:58.

photograph in my opinion, a title, my kingdom for a title. I grew up on

:11:59.:12:04.

the hill where Richard III lost his crown and Henry was crowned the

:12:05.:12:09.

first Tudor king. But that is decide the point. But some context. There

:12:10.:12:16.

he is with the Leicester scarf, Jamie Vardy, who won't be playing,

:12:17.:12:21.

although he has done well for the city, Leicester City, he is banned.

:12:22.:12:35.

Sitting on tenterhooks. You can get a Vardy cino. Oliver Brown, it is

:12:36.:12:41.

lovely, and describes the atmosphere and I don't think there is a

:12:42.:12:48.

football fan in this country who isn't hoping, well maybe Manchester

:12:49.:12:51.

United, but hoping that Leicester do it. Because it is what the FA Cup

:12:52.:12:56.

should be. And there have been so many horrible scandals and so much

:12:57.:13:00.

money sloshing around and we have had Fifa and all of this stuff that

:13:01.:13:06.

has soured it. It is a story of a great team, fabulous manager, who

:13:07.:13:10.

has put a lot of the others in the shade and actually on the brink of

:13:11.:13:15.

history. Some generous comments on social media as well from people who

:13:16.:13:22.

support other teams, but want Leicester to do well. Yes what is

:13:23.:13:29.

interesting, I love, I agree with you, Oliver Brown's story is great,

:13:30.:13:33.

there are crews from all over the world and a man who belongs to the

:13:34.:13:41.

Gujaraty community who says for the first time, he travels a lot and he

:13:42.:13:45.

says, usually he has to explain where Leicester is and that is no

:13:46.:13:50.

longer true. It is great, because it is not just a big national story,

:13:51.:13:55.

but it has become an international story. We should mention also as

:13:56.:14:00.

well as your connection with Richard III they're saying that Richard III

:14:01.:14:04.

might have something to do with the success of Leicester. Because it is

:14:05.:14:13.

since his re-Interment that this good luck on March 26th actually,

:14:14.:14:20.

that this good luck and this... Success has been coming to

:14:21.:14:24.

Leicester. Who knows? They were in the relegation zone. They were. An

:14:25.:14:29.

extraordinary run at the end of last season that kept them just... They

:14:30.:14:35.

had the luck of being the one-hit wonders and they have done it.

:14:36.:14:40.

Unstoppable so far as Oliver Brown says. If they win tomorrow, when

:14:41.:14:46.

they win tomorrow... Let's hope so. Do we feel a film come on. I think

:14:47.:14:52.

there must be. Quickly, we are going to look at the Sunday Express and

:14:53.:15:00.

the real katd and the natural -- Kate and the natural cover girl on

:15:01.:15:08.

the 100th edition of Vogue. I thought it was more interesting they

:15:09.:15:14.

used a 100-year-old model and... You're not referring to Kate. No,

:15:15.:15:19.

but she is a cover girl. Like Diana was. That is it for this hour. But

:15:20.:15:29.

because it is a Saturday, Jo and Benedicte Paviot will be back later.

:15:30.:15:32.

Coming up reporters.
