with Thursday's attack in Nice as France begins three days of

mourning. The man who carried out the attack has been called one of

Islamic State's soldiers. Hello and welcome to our look ahead

to what the papers will be With me are the broadcaster

Penny Smith and Philippa Kennedy Let's take you through tomorrow's

front pages. The Sunday Times leads with events

:00:25.:00:38.

in Turkey and the President's warning that those involved

in the military coup The Telegraph describes

President Erdogan's "revenge The Observer also leads

:00:43.:00:45.

with the repercussions for the people involved

:00:46.:00:48.

in the attempted coup. The Mail says Brexit Minister David

:00:49.:00:54.

Davis could send new EU migrants And the new Foreign Secretary Boris

:00:55.:00:57.

Johnson writes in the Express that the UK can become a "global

:00:58.:01:06.

nation" after leaving the EU. Philip, let's talk about the Sunday

:01:07.:01:23.

Times and leading as most of the papers do, many of them at least,

:01:24.:01:29.

with the dramatic events in Turkey. An extraordinary 24-hour. A dramatic

:01:30.:01:33.

photograph dominating the front page. Turks crash coup. -- crash.

:01:34.:01:45.

That is why we chose this. Pictures of the same thing on the broadsheet

:01:46.:01:55.

papers. The details are beginning to be really scary. 2500 troops, 2800

:01:56.:02:04.

soldiers have been arrested. 2700 judges arrested. It really looks

:02:05.:02:13.

like Erdogan is creating a whole new sort of world for himself, cementing

:02:14.:02:24.

his part. We were talking about this earlier. Some commentators I have

:02:25.:02:33.

been listening to today since this all happens, they have been talking

:02:34.:02:38.

about it. There was a suggestion from a commentator who said this is

:02:39.:02:43.

absolutely... I think in fact Erdogan himself said it is a gift

:02:44.:02:51.

from God. He can now crack down on the people that he has disagreed

:02:52.:02:57.

with. There has been this schism. That is a nice way of putting it.

:02:58.:03:03.

There has been an issue with him and some of the soldiers, some of the

:03:04.:03:09.

high-ranking generals. He wants to consolidate his presidency and get

:03:10.:03:13.

more power. In the past the Army has come in and tried to keep democracy,

:03:14.:03:22.

in the past. It is quite murky what is going on. I'm sure we will find

:03:23.:03:28.

in the coming days about the background. At the moment, we are

:03:29.:03:32.

playing off the back foot a little bit insane, what is going on? It

:03:33.:03:42.

does seem to be a coup led by an element of the Armed Forces but not

:03:43.:03:48.

clearly the entire arm dashes rugby entire Armed Forces. Not just a coup

:03:49.:03:54.

anywhere. Front line against Islamic State of helping the European Union

:03:55.:03:58.

deal with the migrant crisis. It is a critical, crucial country, isn't

:03:59.:04:05.

it? With the Muslim cleric sitting in Pennsylvania clotting. Allegedly.

:04:06.:04:15.

He has denied he has had anything to do with it. -- plotting. What amused

:04:16.:04:22.

me about it is it is kind of the first social media coup which was

:04:23.:04:27.

announced using the face time app via a video link and a smartphone

:04:28.:04:37.

held by a TV presenter. That is how the president showed he was around.

:04:38.:04:43.

Also a quote from someone else, a Swedish woman, screaming for help

:04:44.:04:53.

and shouting, the consequent is not answering that we do not know where

:04:54.:04:58.

to go. -- the consulate. That would be loads of other people saying I

:04:59.:05:04.

have no idea what is going is scary. A similar lead in the Observer.

:05:05.:05:09.

Turkish leader clamps down after crushing army coup bid. Judges being

:05:10.:05:18.

fired over their alleged links to the plotters. Some might even face

:05:19.:05:22.

the death penalty. That might exacerbate tensions within Turkey if

:05:23.:05:31.

some of them are executed. Indeed. This is treason. That is what he is

:05:32.:05:36.

saying. What is terrifying is the way he asked his people, his

:05:37.:05:43.

supporters, to go out into the streets and show support. Would you

:05:44.:05:47.

do that in Turkey, knowing there were tanks there and people

:05:48.:05:51.

shooting? That is people power, in a sense. I would rather batten down

:05:52.:05:58.

the hatches in the safety of my own home. You would not have taken to

:05:59.:06:04.

the streets? Certainly not with my children. The Prime Minister has

:06:05.:06:10.

actually called for a proposal to change the con stitch you shown

:06:11.:06:19.

dashes rugby constitution to let protesters be executed. This country

:06:20.:06:22.

hopes to join the new. Is that something we need to be thinking

:06:23.:06:30.

about? Not any more, probably. A good picture in the Sunday

:06:31.:06:35.

Telegraph. These are young men. Whatever you think of the coup,

:06:36.:06:39.

these are young men who are now being arrested and, obviously, are

:06:40.:06:47.

pretty frightened. There are so many of them. Going into this. You have

:06:48.:06:51.

to remember that many of the people who died, 265 killed. Many of those

:06:52.:07:00.

were not soldiers. Look at the headlines. Revenge on the coup

:07:01.:07:03.

plotters. When I saw that I was not sure of this was the Tory Party, the

:07:04.:07:08.

Labour Party, or something else. Could have been a headline on any

:07:09.:07:15.

other topic this week. One of the sub headlines is initial release of

:07:16.:07:19.

world leaders after a unstable region on a knife edge. That is the

:07:20.:07:26.

point, isn't it? America and Britain, they need Turkey, don't

:07:27.:07:31.

they? They need Turkey to be stable. That is why they are all backing

:07:32.:07:37.

Erdogan. We do not know where this leaves Turkey, do we? They do say,

:07:38.:07:44.

for now, they are pleased that tomography has been restored. The

:07:45.:07:55.

Independent, plotters paying heavy price. We're not sure what that

:07:56.:08:02.

means. In the Independent, they produce is wonderful front pages for

:08:03.:08:08.

newspaper reviews. You can see it online. You can. Have a look at the

:08:09.:08:17.

inside stories. Simon Calder writing about, is it safe to go on holiday

:08:18.:08:20.

ownership question does not save anywhere really. Another talking

:08:21.:08:26.

about the Nice killer. Is he really linked to Rice 's? I am more

:08:27.:08:29.

interested in reading what is inside the Independent. The main story,

:08:30.:08:36.

apart from the picture which is techy collect a call for call. They

:08:37.:08:43.

got a poll on what British people think about whether to have an early

:08:44.:08:49.

election with Theresa May. They say most British people have had enough

:08:50.:08:54.

democracy for the time being. Not enough democracy but enough. Enough

:08:55.:09:01.

of referendums. It is an interesting point. A lotta people are saying

:09:02.:09:10.

Theresa May should have an election. From this poll result, 46% agree

:09:11.:09:14.

that Theresa May does not need to face a general election to get

:09:15.:09:17.

support for her programme. What do think about that? I want some peace

:09:18.:09:29.

and quiet. I do really. That is what Theresa May is showing. I keep

:09:30.:09:33.

hearing box pops from Labour voters saying actually she is setting us

:09:34.:09:39.

all down. -- Fox pops. That is what is required. A lot of people will

:09:40.:09:44.

feel like that. We do not want any more referendum. It is not a

:09:45.:09:51.

presidential system. The Prime Minister is the leader of the

:09:52.:09:56.

Parliamentary party. People do not vote for the Prime Minister. They

:09:57.:10:01.

vote for a party. That party is still there. You could argue the

:10:02.:10:06.

Prime Minister has becoming recently presidential in recent decades. You

:10:07.:10:11.

can argue what you like. I am merely pointing out. It has been said

:10:12.:10:16.

before. They are voted in for five years and that is it. They are in

:10:17.:10:20.

for five years. They are going to debate though a second referendum.

:10:21.:10:24.

We just think, my goodness, when the dust has settled and friends are

:10:25.:10:28.

talking again and relatives are talking again, if there is another

:10:29.:10:34.

referendum... The mail on Sunday talking not about Turkey or Nice but

:10:35.:10:41.

David Davis telling the Mail on Sunday he might send home people who

:10:42.:10:46.

come into the UK from now, in other words, to try to beat the Brexit.

:10:47.:10:53.

This comes from something that Mrs May said before she became Prime

:10:54.:10:57.

Minister. She talked about a potential surge. We were not quite

:10:58.:11:06.

sure which way she was voting but she had very strong thoughts even

:11:07.:11:09.

though she was in the remaining camp. She was also worried about the

:11:10.:11:17.

position of British citizens in European countries. There might be a

:11:18.:11:23.

bit of that. That is what it sounds like David Davis is thinking hard

:11:24.:11:27.

about people who live in Spain and France and trying to make... He is

:11:28.:11:31.

determined to win a generous settlement from those -- for those

:11:32.:11:40.

people. I do think that splash looks a bit desperate when there is so

:11:41.:11:47.

much more important going on. You do not think they should be focusing on

:11:48.:11:50.

bricks because there is so much other news. Yes. It is almost like

:11:51.:11:57.

compassion fatigue. There are still stories I want to read. I want to

:11:58.:12:01.

read what happened to that cyclist who tried to stop... They have not

:12:02.:12:07.

found him yet. They say he was crushed under the wheels, don't

:12:08.:12:14.

they? Further into the paper, it said nobody knew what had happened

:12:15.:12:21.

to him. That is the sort of story... This is just really a bit of path.

:12:22.:12:25.

Really we do not know what is going on. The EU could say, no, until you

:12:26.:12:34.

start Article 50... I think a discussion about that. You get what

:12:35.:12:37.

you're given until you start the negotiations. In the Sunday Express,

:12:38.:12:44.

they have of Boris Johnson exclusive. What is that one about? I

:12:45.:12:51.

would love to know what Boris has said about Erdogan. He has said so

:12:52.:13:00.

much about otherworldly does. Do you think Theresa May just did this? Now

:13:01.:13:08.

spend the next year going and saying sorry. The story really is not

:13:09.:13:14.

anything. It is a big, fat puff for Boris. He is saying it is going to

:13:15.:13:19.

be marvellous and it will be OK. The editor is a really good friend of

:13:20.:13:24.

mine and I do not want to say that. I know you are a keen golf fan. Rory

:13:25.:13:35.

McIlroy on the back page. Rory on the 16th. He started on the 15th

:13:36.:13:42.

where he hit a very bad shot and then another on the 16th. He was so

:13:43.:13:46.

cross with himself, he threw it and broke it in half. I love Rory. He is

:13:47.:13:55.

wonderful. Is that like racket abuse in terrace? It is naughty. It is

:13:56.:14:02.

poor sportsmanship. You cannot go around doing that. I will tell you

:14:03.:14:10.

what. I thought they were metal. Quite hard to break. I once tried to

:14:11.:14:16.

break a computer and it took me an hour and a half. The steel shafts do

:14:17.:14:24.

bend. So, he would have bent it rather than broken it. He did break

:14:25.:14:30.

it. Can our sportsmen not be passionate? You can be passionate

:14:31.:14:36.

about being a good sport. We do not want young people going around golf

:14:37.:14:41.

courses breaking clubs. Speaking of golfers setting an example or not,

:14:42.:14:45.

what about those who are not going to the Olympics in Rio? What do you

:14:46.:14:50.

think about that? I do not think golf should be an Olympic sport.

:14:51.:14:55.

Olympic should be running about and throwing javelins. I am excited

:14:56.:15:00.

about rock climbing being in the 2020 Japan Olympics. You can do that

:15:01.:15:05.

in a stadium, I suppose. That is what they are going to be doing,

:15:06.:15:09.

fixed rock climbing. They were not send them off to a mountain.

:15:10.:15:14.

Apparently it is called sport climbing. Didier watching Greeks do

:15:15.:15:22.

rock climbing? They do not do a lot of things we do now. The IC thing...

:15:23.:15:31.

Curling. We are showing a lot of technical knowledge of the Olympics

:15:32.:15:35.

here. I'm quite excited about some of the new things. Others who do

:15:36.:15:39.

think... So many of them. Tennis was another example where people said,

:15:40.:15:44.

why is it there? Will you be glued to your screens? I do. That lovely

:15:45.:15:51.

summer of 2012 and the London Olympics. It was such a lovely warm

:15:52.:15:54.

summer and I said most of it in front of the television, glued to

:15:55.:16:00.

various sports I had never seen before. Loved fencing. Great to talk

:16:01.:16:08.

to you guys. Thank you so much for being with us. Do stay with us here

:16:09.:16:15.

on BBC news. At 11, we will be reporting on the huge crowds that

:16:16.:16:20.

are taking to the streets in support of President Erdogan. More on the

:16:21.:16:24.

aftermath of the military coup which has left more than 250 people dead.

:16:25.:16:28.

Next is the weather.
