Hello, and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers

:00:13.:00:15.

With me are the political commentator Jo Phillips

:00:16.:00:18.

and Benedicte Paviot, who's the UK correspondent for France 24.

:00:19.:00:23.

Tomorrow's front pages starting with...

:00:24.:00:26.

The Sunday Express says the Portuguese detective who led

:00:27.:00:28.

attempts to find Madeline McCann will release a new book

:00:29.:00:31.

on the investigation, bringing fresh anguish to the family.

:00:32.:00:34.

The Sunday Mail says the BBC will be forbidden to

:00:35.:00:39.

schedule primetime programmes at the same time as its rivals,

:00:40.:00:42.

The Sunday Telegraph also leads with the

:00:43.:00:45.

BBC's Royal Charter, saying the corporation will face more checks

:00:46.:00:48.

The Times says the new Israeli Ambassador to Britain has

:00:49.:01:09.

That's where we start, we are expecting the Charter renewal white

:01:10.:01:14.

paper in the next couple of weeks from the government. Some suggestion

:01:15.:01:22.

as to what might be in it, this is the Sunday mail's take on it. The

:01:23.:01:27.

suggestion that rivals will be allowed to schedule when they want

:01:28.:01:33.

to put programmes on and the BBC will have to move there is. Which is

:01:34.:01:39.

extraordinary. This is clearly a leak because it's not just four or

:01:40.:01:51.

five pages in The Mail on Sunday -- theirs. These are unprecedented new

:01:52.:01:56.

checks. That white paper I gather is due to be published on May the 12.

:01:57.:02:03.

One of the examples that the Mail on Sunday gives is for example Strictly

:02:04.:02:07.

Come Dancing will not be able to be in the prime Saturday night slot

:02:08.:02:11.

because it's causing problems for its rival, X Factor. This is

:02:12.:02:18.

extraordinary. What's the BBC is supposed to do? One of our Twitter

:02:19.:02:24.

viewers, Tim Joshua, says what will happen to the Paper Review, will

:02:25.:02:28.

that have to change because it clashes with another channel? As

:02:29.:02:35.

popular as we are and as much as we love the Paper Review, I don't think

:02:36.:02:39.

we are as big as Britain's Got Talent. I was talking about paper

:02:40.:02:45.

reviews at a similar time on another channel. I see, I'm a bit slow. The

:02:46.:02:52.

BBC shouldn't be promoting itself with trailers. The BBC has been

:02:53.:02:57.

accused in the past at times of being aggressively commercial, and

:02:58.:03:01.

having the advantage of a licence fee, which commercial TV networks

:03:02.:03:08.

don't have. There is an argument, the counterargument is that instead

:03:09.:03:11.

of chasing audiences and going up against X factor and Strictly, you

:03:12.:03:18.

should be spending licence payers' money on high-quality drama and

:03:19.:03:24.

documentaries and things like that -- X Factor. Rather than going for

:03:25.:03:29.

bums on seats and big ratings. Then we have the reverse of that, if the

:03:30.:03:33.

quality isn't good enough then the Sunday Telegraph said the BBC would

:03:34.:03:38.

face checks into how well its programmes are performing. Also

:03:39.:03:41.

there's the suggestion that the next charter will be for an 11 year

:03:42.:03:47.

period. That's the best that came from the House of Lords, taking

:03:48.:03:51.

charter renewal out of sync with the election cycle. It is the second

:03:52.:04:01.

longest ever if this is right, because in 1981 Margaret Thatcher

:04:02.:04:03.

gave the corporation 15 years. It is to break that sync with fixed term

:04:04.:04:10.

parliaments so it stops becoming a political battle. It gives the BBC

:04:11.:04:16.

more certainty over funding, so we know at the moment it is taking on

:04:17.:04:19.

costs from the government in the form of the over 75s licence fee.

:04:20.:04:25.

This will please many who think the BBC has got too big and too

:04:26.:04:30.

imperial. And it's not doing enough distinctive programming and trying

:04:31.:04:34.

to compete too much with whether its ITV or Skype or Amazon in fact. --

:04:35.:04:46.

it's. The 15 year guarantee... 11 year charter renewal. Yes, as the

:04:47.:04:49.

Sunday Telegraph says, that will relieve the anxiety is among BBC

:04:50.:04:57.

executives. It gives some certainty that the anxiety among. It will get

:04:58.:05:01.

a re-examination after five years anyway -- the anxiety among. There

:05:02.:05:08.

are some areas where the BBC is trying to copy too much or have too

:05:09.:05:15.

much rivalry. If all of this is true it does seem like it is coming down

:05:16.:05:21.

to hard on the BBC. Many people would disagree. People do disagree.

:05:22.:05:28.

A lot of other channels across the world do this. Let's stay with the

:05:29.:05:33.

Telegraph. The PM's academy deal for rebels. The idea that all state

:05:34.:05:39.

schools in England should become academies is not going down well in

:05:40.:05:46.

some Conservative seats, Jo. It's not going down anywhere particularly

:05:47.:05:51.

well. It's not going down well with teachers, it's not going down well

:05:52.:05:55.

with local authorities. A report out last week said local authorities...

:05:56.:05:59.

Schools run by local authorities are doing much better. Better than they

:06:00.:06:03.

were? Better than they were and better than academies. The real

:06:04.:06:09.

problem has come for David Cameron in the form that he's facing a

:06:10.:06:13.

massive rebellion. The leader of Kent county council, which still has

:06:14.:06:19.

the 11 plus in fact, was very, very heavily critical the other day. This

:06:20.:06:26.

is about rural schools who could face closure if they're not

:06:27.:06:29.

supported by the local authority. They could close. Then you got the

:06:30.:06:34.

cost of rural transport, the death of small villages and things. It is

:06:35.:06:40.

popular with some, because some parents really want their school to

:06:41.:06:44.

have control over their own budgets? Yes, some do. There's a

:06:45.:06:50.

growing mood... And we see here after Morgan was heckled actually at

:06:51.:06:57.

that conference, that the national association of head teachers has now

:06:58.:07:01.

voted in favour of considering industrial action in protest at all

:07:02.:07:05.

schools becoming academies. They could shut for a day or so. The

:07:06.:07:10.

Observer now, anti-Semitism row could hit poll hopes, Siddique Khan,

:07:11.:07:13.

the Labour candidate for London mayor. It is feasible that Jewish

:07:14.:07:19.

people in London might turn away from the Labour Party. This is an

:07:20.:07:28.

interview with the Observer. With only four days to go until the

:07:29.:07:33.

mayoral action in London, we must remember there are other elections,

:07:34.:07:37.

but this is damaging to Labour. Sadik Khan is worried tens of

:07:38.:07:42.

thousands of Jewish voters in the capital may feel unable to back

:07:43.:07:49.

him. With Ken Livingstone's remarks about Zionism and Hitler, this story

:07:50.:07:52.

has been running since Thursday morning. We have this enquiry led by

:07:53.:08:00.

Shanle chakra party, a very respected director of the Civil

:08:01.:08:03.

Liberties group Liberty, but that will take time. It's interesting

:08:04.:08:09.

because in an interview with the Jewish Chronicle, Khan said Labour

:08:10.:08:16.

had to move away from its unacceptable anti-Jewish stance. He

:08:17.:08:24.

was saying that a year ago. He also took quite happily the endorsement

:08:25.:08:26.

of Ken Livingstone when he was standing to beam Labour's mayoral

:08:27.:08:32.

candidate in the London elections. That to be. If it runs for this many

:08:33.:08:38.

days it has become the story, as Alistair Campbell said, and has

:08:39.:08:45.

become the centre of it -- to be. Staying with the Observer, the UK in

:08:46.:08:50.

the throes of a housing crisis. That's alarming in a country like

:08:51.:08:54.

this were four in ten say they don't believe they will ever own a home,

:08:55.:08:58.

it's a bit of a national obsession, which must look ridiculous in France

:08:59.:09:02.

from times. Certainly very different because in France really you

:09:03.:09:10.

rent... Some people buy but the custom is to rent. It does seem

:09:11.:09:18.

somewhat of an obsession. It's very worrying, it's clearly a housing

:09:19.:09:22.

crisis, it's been important at the last general election and it is

:09:23.:09:25.

certainly very important there is certainly very important there's no

:09:26.:09:32.

doubt in London. It is overpriced and overcrowded. So many governments

:09:33.:09:36.

have said they know the need to tackle it, not just this one but

:09:37.:09:41.

before it the coalition and labour, it's an issue of supply and aren't.

:09:42.:09:46.

It has become a crisis but the Guardian and the Observer are

:09:47.:09:49.

obsessed with house prices, in the way that the Daily Express used to

:09:50.:09:54.

be, and to a certain extent this is a London centric storage. But London

:09:55.:09:59.

is the capital of England, and you are looking into a problem now that

:10:00.:10:03.

isn't so much about buying a house or getting on the ladder, it's the

:10:04.:10:08.

astronomical cost of private rent -- a London centric story. You've got a

:10:09.:10:14.

triple whammy, no housing and the right to buy council housing. You

:10:15.:10:21.

have council houses going up a staggering rate. House prices as

:10:22.:10:25.

well. No government did anything to stop the buy to let boom. We do have

:10:26.:10:33.

helped to buy, we have helped to buy ices where the government will

:10:34.:10:37.

contribute to savings and the shared ownership idea. -- ISAs. Sometimes

:10:38.:10:46.

it's not as difficult as the media would imply to get onto the housing

:10:47.:10:51.

ladder. That's right. It does seem to be a real London problem and it's

:10:52.:10:56.

a serious London problem because the workers can no longer afford on

:10:57.:10:59.

their meagre salaries to live in London. Or even on a fairly decent

:11:00.:11:09.

salary by national standards. Sunday Times, MPs summoned the no green

:11:10.:11:14.

from Monaco after the BHS collapse. Tell us about this -- Tina Green.

:11:15.:11:23.

This is slightly disingenuous, the headline, when you read the story.

:11:24.:11:27.

It's intended she will be called to give evidence to MPs after the

:11:28.:11:33.

collapse of BHS. There are two select committees, the Work and

:11:34.:11:37.

Pensions and business and innovation who have written to her husband, Sir

:11:38.:11:42.

Philip, asking him to appear, and last night both committees said they

:11:43.:11:46.

wanted to invite Lady Green... She lives in Monaco, is a Monaco

:11:47.:11:51.

resident, and is the owner of the retail empire run by Sir Philip.

:11:52.:11:55.

According to the Mail and the googling we've been doing. Her

:11:56.:12:00.

husband runs it and she owns it, it's a perfectly legitimate way of

:12:01.:12:06.

organising things. But we know this high-street brand is in deep

:12:07.:12:10.

trouble. Terrible trouble, and has been for some times. There's nothing

:12:11.:12:15.

that can force you to go to a Select Committee. But it is very poor form

:12:16.:12:19.

not to attend. And when you're British, it's not somebody who is

:12:20.:12:24.

foreign Nationals wherever you pay your taxes -- a foreign national.

:12:25.:12:28.

Let's look at a very exciting story. Not the housing prices. A

:12:29.:12:36.

city on tenterhooks. This afternoon Leicester City can complete

:12:37.:12:42.

football's greatest fairy tale with an unlikely first league triumph,

:12:43.:12:46.

excitement is at fever pitch as they go to Old Trafford. An amazing

:12:47.:12:50.

story, little Leicester have done so well this season. Leicester City, in

:12:51.:12:56.

the relegation zone last year, and they are now poised to take the

:12:57.:13:01.

league. It's fantastic. If they beat Manchester United tomorrow afternoon

:13:02.:13:05.

then they have done it and they still have two games in hand. It's

:13:06.:13:10.

great because it's what football is about, it's about the little guy

:13:11.:13:14.

coming up and it's lovely. Chelsea have sunk right down, Manchester

:13:15.:13:17.

United have had a terrible up and down season. It's really shaken it

:13:18.:13:23.

up and they've done it with great grace and their manager, Ranieri, is

:13:24.:13:28.

just fantastic and an example to so many other money managers. I'm

:13:29.:13:34.

delighted and I'm sorry to know that I can't get a Vardycino, in a coffee

:13:35.:13:45.

bar there, cappuccino subtly modified so the chocolate powder

:13:46.:13:49.

settles to form an uncanny silhouette of Jamie Vardy on the

:13:50.:13:53.

froth. He won't be on the froth because he won't be playing

:13:54.:13:59.

tomorrow. He will be on the bench because he is banned. What caught my

:14:00.:14:05.

eye is the ?2 bet on Leicester that could net ?45,000. A gambler that

:14:06.:14:11.

that to pounce on them winning the Premier League, and also Bayern

:14:12.:14:14.

Munich winning the Champions League, so this could net him

:14:15.:14:29.

?45,000. The double it up with the Bayern one. There's a Leicester fan

:14:30.:14:34.

called John, editor-in-chief of the Bloomberg News, former editor of the

:14:35.:14:41.

Economist, he's kicking himself for missing out on a ?110,000 win. Why?

:14:42.:14:49.

For the last 20 years he has put a ?20 bet on Leicester taking the

:14:50.:14:54.

title but this year he didn't. Why? Because he moved to New York, the

:14:55.:14:59.

big bad apple. What a missed opportunity. We had a very large, so

:15:00.:15:08.

large it is rather vulgar in scale, an 8-foot flag that will be from our

:15:09.:15:12.

window if they are successful tomorrow. Will you be drinking any

:15:13.:15:20.

Vardycinos? Absolutely. I'm always thrilled when Lester's teams do very

:15:21.:15:25.

well. Of course I am. The Tigers doing well as well. That's the

:15:26.:15:30.

papers tonight. -- Leicester's teams. Coming up next it is The Film

:15:31.:15:33.

Review. Thank you for joining me.
