winning more than half the awards including best drama for

Wolf Hall and best entertainment show for Strictly Come Dancing.

:00:00.:00:17.

Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers

:00:18.:00:19.

With this are Lynn Faulds Wood and James Rampton from the Independent.

:00:20.:00:33.

The Metro previews the speech being made by David Cameron tomorrow,

:00:34.:00:36.

in which he's expected to say a vote to remain in the EU keeps

:00:37.:00:39.

The Telegraph has chosen stronger words to

:00:40.:00:42.

describe the Prime Minister's speech, calling it Churchillian.

:00:43.:00:44.

And the Mail describes the speech

:00:45.:00:46.

as an extraordinary intervention by David Cameron.

:00:47.:00:47.

A similar theme in the Times and the photo is

:00:48.:00:50.

of Mark Rylance, who won best actor at this evening's TV Baftas.

:00:51.:00:53.

The Financial Times reflects

:00:54.:00:55.

on the verbal blows exchanged between George Osborne and Michael

:00:56.:00:58.

The Guardian reports on a mother's anger that

:00:59.:01:02.

just a caution was handed down to a perpetrator of revenge-porn.

:01:03.:01:07.

Plans to crackdown on so-called health tourism is

:01:08.:01:11.

And the Daily Star forecasts sickies being pulled

:01:12.:01:15.

nationwide because of the sunny weather.

:01:16.:01:21.

But around this table. Let's look at the Daily Mail, shall we. EU vote,

:01:22.:01:33.

the PE warns of war and genocide, -- the PM. Extraordinary, because of

:01:34.:01:42.

the tone of it or... ? They are worried about the tone. In the

:01:43.:01:45.

comment section they are saying, is it too much to hope the PM will tone

:01:46.:01:50.

down the rhetoric and start to treat the electorate like adults? I

:01:51.:01:53.

understand what they are saying, at his tone is very apocalyptic, but I

:01:54.:01:56.

never thought I would say this on air, I agree with him, that the past

:01:57.:02:03.

1000 years, continental Europe has been in turmoil and conflict, and

:02:04.:02:07.

since the formation of the EU, the members of that club have never had

:02:08.:02:12.

a war. That is the longest time in history of Europe. I know Angela

:02:13.:02:15.

Merkel, the German Chancellor, leaves very strongly that European

:02:16.:02:20.

unity is dedicated on the EU, that it rings us together and we are not

:02:21.:02:25.

going to fall out. It is almost visceral thing about staying

:02:26.:02:28.

together, and you are not going to fight each other if you are

:02:29.:02:32.

together, and I think the athlete Lee has a good point, David Cameron.

:02:33.:02:37.

-- he absolutely. How is the leave campaign going to counter this?

:02:38.:02:41.

Trouble at the moment is you have the leave campaign coming up with

:02:42.:02:46.

something that is quite a good idea, and some things that are not a good

:02:47.:02:50.

idea. The pros and cons are mixed up. Tomorrow the leaders will be

:02:51.:02:55.

coming out and saying, we will all be fine, the only war we have had

:02:56.:03:00.

was just outside Europe, which was when Yugoslavia broke up. And that

:03:01.:03:06.

was a 16 or 17 years ago. The rest of the time we have not had wars.

:03:07.:03:13.

The project of the EU was supposed to be stopping, they are bringing

:03:14.:03:19.

war veterans, these people did not fight for us to leave Europe, and

:03:20.:03:24.

there are some war veterans who have actually come out to support David

:03:25.:03:33.

Cameron and the remainder is, -- the remaining campaign, and saying this

:03:34.:03:37.

has been jeopardised. The front pages saying it is not the EU that

:03:38.:03:43.

has kept peace, it is Nato. That is a wider alliance. There is that, but

:03:44.:03:47.

there is the symbolic valley of being in a club together, which

:03:48.:03:51.

means that you are not going to be fighting like rats in a sack. I also

:03:52.:03:55.

think that the many other strong point made by the remain campaign

:03:56.:03:59.

today in response to what Michael Gove said this morning, he is

:04:00.:04:04.

suggesting that if we leave the EU we will also leave the single

:04:05.:04:08.

market, and I am not an economic expert, but I think that the UK

:04:09.:04:13.

chief executive of Siemens went -- may well be. He suggested that was

:04:14.:04:20.

staggering, and the head of BT said the same thing. There is lots of

:04:21.:04:24.

evidence that this fire that Michael Gove has taken about how we would

:04:25.:04:28.

easily be able to have tariff free trade -- tariff free trade, like

:04:29.:04:33.

Albania and Serbia, I think that is nonsense. This is the time is that

:04:34.:04:36.

you are talking about. You are doing my job to me. -- the Times. " Brexit

:04:37.:04:47.

will raise risk of war", that is the headline. Outside of their official

:04:48.:04:51.

roles, some business leaders speaking in a personal capacity,

:04:52.:04:55.

have poured cold water on this idea. Tomorrow we have this big

:04:56.:05:02.

speech by David Cameron, he is going to be invoking Churchill, and three

:05:03.:05:05.

hours after his speech, Boris Johnson is coming out with a speech,

:05:06.:05:11.

and he wrote an autobiography of Churchill, so he will be invoking a

:05:12.:05:15.

different Churchill, from the one that David Cameron... It is just

:05:16.:05:19.

becoming so confusing. We have 45 days yet to go, we have war and

:05:20.:05:25.

genocide in tomorrow's papers, what will happen after that? It is just

:05:26.:05:32.

going to be... The latest poll which was done for good morning Britain,

:05:33.:05:39.

so it must be true was 42% for remaining, 42% believing, and there

:05:40.:05:43.

was another 19% or something, is that the correct maths? That is very

:05:44.:05:48.

much in the margin of error. That is too close to call. Nobody knows what

:05:49.:05:52.

will happen, and we know what the polls were like last year in the

:05:53.:05:57.

general election. If they keep raving this up anything could

:05:58.:06:06.

happen. Calm, tells -- Sadiq Khan tells Jeremy Coleman, labour needs a

:06:07.:06:15.

bigger tents. Is that idea that they cannot appeal to that court reliable

:06:16.:06:22.

vote, they will never get elected? Gerry Corbyn is -- Djere Neade grow

:06:23.:06:29.

one, is supposed to appeal to that left wing, he has done this in a

:06:30.:06:35.

very each big tent way, so to speak, two days he seems to has appealed to

:06:36.:06:42.

most, having in his swearing-in ceremony at Southwark Cathedral with

:06:43.:06:48.

all faiths present, and today at the Holocaust memorial, he does seem to

:06:49.:06:53.

be trying to bring everybody in, and what he is basically saying is that

:06:54.:06:56.

Jeremy Corbyn has been too left-wing, and that he has to widen

:06:57.:07:02.

his tent. I agree, that Sadiq Khan has played a blinder since he won

:07:03.:07:06.

the election, and something else he said today, we do not win elections

:07:07.:07:10.

by talking to people who already vote Labour. Tony Blair knew that in

:07:11.:07:18.

1997, you only win number 10 by winning the middle ground. It is the

:07:19.:07:24.

same in America, Ronald Reagan won the White House by ringing the

:07:25.:07:30.

Reagan Democrats, you can only win if you have a broad appeal. You have

:07:31.:07:35.

to wonder how vulnerable Jeremy Corbyn is now, having got through

:07:36.:07:39.

the elections in a better way, than many people thought. I think he is

:07:40.:07:45.

vulnerable at the moment. Trouble with Scotland, for example, which we

:07:46.:07:50.

lost, the SNP is left-leaning, that is why Labour has lost its vote,

:07:51.:07:59.

particularly to them, and the Tory candidate, she sounds like a great

:08:00.:08:03.

character, and the public loved characters. But she did not mention

:08:04.:08:08.

the word Conservative. She became a proper opposition to the SNP. What

:08:09.:08:14.

Jeremy Corbyn has to do in England, he has to get the 13% swing, so he

:08:15.:08:19.

has to bring a lot of Tories into the tent as well. I would like to

:08:20.:08:27.

move on. We will stay with the Independent, but move on to the

:08:28.:08:43.

Baftas. The director of Wolff Paul, who won best drama, saying BBC faces

:08:44.:08:50.

life as a state broadcaster like North Korea. He came out fighting

:08:51.:08:58.

for the BBC. He was accorded a standing ovation. He said John

:08:59.:09:05.

Whittingdale's suggest that you should move popular programmes like

:09:06.:09:09.

strictly come dancing, it was they were too popular, is absolutely

:09:10.:09:14.

ludicrous. Peter Kosminsky said, quite rightly, that the BBC would

:09:15.:09:21.

face life as a straight broadcaster -- state broadcaster like North

:09:22.:09:25.

Korea. The BBC is the greatest thing this country has ever done after the

:09:26.:09:29.

NHS, I speak to a lot of foreign journalists and my work, and they

:09:30.:09:32.

are completely gobsmacked that some papers in this country attack it so

:09:33.:09:36.

much, it is one of our great glories of democracy. Which other

:09:37.:09:41.

broadcaster in the world, would have brought about the downfall of its

:09:42.:09:44.

director-general by interviewing him on one of its own programmes. It is

:09:45.:09:50.

extraordinary. For some people the BBC has been too commercially

:09:51.:09:53.

aggressive at times, to the detriment of its competitors, when

:09:54.:09:56.

it has the advantage and the privileged position of receiving the

:09:57.:10:01.

licence fee. It is not perfect. I have worked over the years

:10:02.:10:04.

intermittently at the BBC, I do work for an outfit so I can say what they

:10:05.:10:08.

like, but it has done plenty of wonderful things. Peter Kosminsky

:10:09.:10:14.

joined the BBC around the same time I started popping up on BBC

:10:15.:10:24.

breakfast. Peter is a classic example of somebody who got his

:10:25.:10:30.

first rake, and he has done so many admired programmes, not all for the

:10:31.:10:35.

BBC, will fall happens to be. He has a broader view of its place. --

:10:36.:10:42.

Wolff Hall. He is also no supporter of the labour government. He made

:10:43.:10:49.

the film, the government, years ago, which was about the way the Labour

:10:50.:10:56.

Party behaved around Calais and the Hutton enquiry. He is very much a

:10:57.:11:00.

mutual person, -- neutral person. He needs to be respected even more in

:11:01.:11:05.

his position. Let's look at the Guardian. Another BBC programme that

:11:06.:11:11.

won the features award, this time Appetite for Success, a little

:11:12.:11:18.

mention for the great British break off when, -- take off winner. Did

:11:19.:11:24.

you ever think you would see that picture in the paper, Mary Berry

:11:25.:11:29.

always looks superb, and is leading one of the best watched programmes

:11:30.:11:34.

in the whole country, and the thing that they are missing when they have

:11:35.:11:41.

a look at the BBC, there is a lot of these programmes, a lot of people

:11:42.:11:44.

are baking now, they are dancing out, because strictly come dancing

:11:45.:11:49.

is... It may be spurious to say so, but lots of commentators said that

:11:50.:11:56.

Nadia Hussein's victory allowed more people to understand, what people

:11:57.:12:03.

like Nadia and her background were like, then documentaries. She was

:12:04.:12:07.

presented as a human being, a delightful human being, which is the

:12:08.:12:11.

great thing that television can do, it can open at up into other worlds

:12:12.:12:18.

which we could not otherwise enter. We will wait and see. Hands off,

:12:19.:12:32.

Whittingdale! We have to move on. Quickly, before I get in trouble.

:12:33.:12:36.

There will be a lot of people who agree with John Whittingdale.

:12:37.:12:44.

International New York Times,, the Republican Party in two mines about

:12:45.:12:50.

whether Donald Trump really should be their presidential candidate, as

:12:51.:13:00.

he is. I am so full of news about the Baftas, I can't find it. It does

:13:01.:13:06.

not matter what Trump does, the public loved him because he is the

:13:07.:13:10.

celebrity and he speaks his mind, and they are sick of stereotypical

:13:11.:13:13.

politicians. That is part of the reason, and the Republican Party

:13:14.:13:18.

is, in the greatest disarray has ever been in, there is resilient

:13:19.:13:22.

programme in Scotland, the land of my fathers, there was a horrific, he

:13:23.:13:28.

took the Scottish government to the cleaners over a golf course that he

:13:29.:13:32.

set up in an area of natural beauty, an important scientific beauty site,

:13:33.:13:37.

and he skinned them, and Alex summoned -- Alex Salmond said that

:13:38.:13:45.

on television. As a liberal person I am delighted he is going to get the

:13:46.:13:48.

rubber to nomination, because even Republicans will vote Hillary

:13:49.:13:52.

Clinton. The Republican nomination. Some will. There was a supporter of

:13:53.:13:59.

John McCain who was the previous Republican candidate who said he

:14:00.:14:02.

would vote for Clinton. There will be lots of people who we talk about,

:14:03.:14:06.

the middle ground, who will go to Clinton, and is absolutely at will

:14:07.:14:14.

not get in. Oh dear. Allegedly. Let's finish there. Thank you so

:14:15.:14:22.

much, James, thank you. Coming up next it is the film review.
