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

:00:16.:00:19.

With me are broadcaster Henry Bonsu and Matt McAllester,

:00:20.:00:22.

The Metro leads with doctors' overtime pay in the NHS.

:00:23.:00:34.

It says one doctor in Lancashire made ?375,000 in a year

:00:35.:00:36.

from overtime payments, on top of their ?89,000 salary.

:00:37.:00:38.

The Financial Times writes the Federal Reserve

:00:39.:00:40.

is considering a second rise in interest rates following

:00:41.:00:45.

The i has a full page dedicated to the cash raised

:00:46.:00:56.

from the charity stunt - the Ice Bucket Challenge -

:00:57.:00:58.

which has led to a breakthrough in understanding motor neurone disease.

:00:59.:01:03.

The Telegraph cites a new study which says office workers need

:01:04.:01:05.

to exercise for an hour a day to combat the stresses

:01:06.:01:08.

The Guardian headlines that the UK economy has started to feel

:01:09.:01:17.

the effects of Brexit, according to new figures.

:01:18.:01:19.

But the Express says Britain is booming following the vote,

:01:20.:01:25.

citing new GDP figures and says the UK leaving the EU

:01:26.:01:28.

The Times says scientists have created the first drug that can

:01:29.:01:33.

halt Alzheimer's Disease by taking a pill twice daily.

:01:34.:01:35.

And the Daily Mail headlines that only one terror suspect in Britain

:01:36.:01:39.

under curfew order by the security services despite, it says,

:01:40.:01:42.

there being over 2,000 extremists within the UK.

:01:43.:01:55.

Henry we will start with the Guardian UK economy begins to feel

:01:56.:02:03.

Brexit tremors we are only a month on from the vote, the smart people

:02:04.:02:07.

out there, the experts say it is too early to work out what impact Brexit

:02:08.:02:13.

has had on the economy, that hasn't stopped the newspapers cherry

:02:14.:02:16.

picking information, so the Guardian was Remain so it is looking for

:02:17.:02:20.

evidence that the economy has been hammered and they found it in the

:02:21.:02:26.

figures from the office for national statistics which says it has

:02:27.:02:33.

expanded by 0. 0..6%. That should be a great story for the Brexiteers.

:02:34.:02:36.

The Guardian said this is a bad story. It has looked at other

:02:37.:02:42.

figures saying that growth is being overshadowed, Philip Hammond did

:02:43.:02:45.

say, our new Chancellor, there will be no repeat of this growth in the

:02:46.:02:49.

next quarter, so they are clinging on to that. They lock at figures

:02:50.:02:55.

from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders which

:02:56.:02:58.

looked positive on the surface but they say that retail, so it is sales

:02:59.:03:04.

of cars may not g by as good going forward and the figures are as a

:03:05.:03:08.

result of long term investment, so they are looking for evidence that

:03:09.:03:12.

the economy is suffering, ever though in headline terms, Brexit

:03:13.:03:17.

does not seem to have dampened investment between April and June.

:03:18.:03:24.

So the GDP figures out today, it depends what you take from them.

:03:25.:03:29.

What do you make of these Matt? In the Express, it is all good news

:03:30.:03:36.

apart from one thing, which is that they are suggesting there will be a

:03:37.:03:40.

surge of new EU migrants desperate to get in before the doors close,

:03:41.:03:46.

and so this is all the more reason with booming Britain, and powering

:03:47.:03:53.

ahead, Britain becomes more and more attractive for migrants and so close

:03:54.:04:01.

the doors now, and they cite a few new investments Glaxo Smith Klein

:04:02.:04:07.

investing another 275 million in Britain, after the vote, and City

:04:08.:04:14.

Airport is adding 1600 new job, McDonalds adding new job, so you

:04:15.:04:18.

couldn't find two more different interpretations of stuff that really

:04:19.:04:22.

we are five weeks into this, and everyone is looking to read the tea

:04:23.:04:26.

leaves and it is too early yet. One of things I am alarmed about is this

:04:27.:04:30.

notion that people are going to rush only do into Britain because they

:04:31.:04:34.

think the shutters, the drawbridge is going to be pulled up. I suspect

:04:35.:04:39.

a lot the brightest and best will look at the increasing levels of

:04:40.:04:44.

hate crime, all the negative stuff, all the stuff that is bubbling along

:04:45.:04:48.

the surface but unleashed by Brexit and will think do I want to take a

:04:49.:04:53.

risk, do I want to invest my future many this country if I am not

:04:54.:04:57.

wanted? They might look for guarantees that haven't been given

:04:58.:05:01.

by the new Prime Minister. And they may think to themselves I am going

:05:02.:05:04.

to go elsewhere. I am just not sure that we are going to see this huge

:05:05.:05:09.

surge of new migrants coming into work for example in our hell Serb

:05:10.:05:15.

vest -- service. All the elms are about uncertainty, whether the

:05:16.:05:18.

economy or mights who are here and those who might want only do, no-one

:05:19.:05:22.

knows at this stage what is going to happen, because we just don't. The

:05:23.:05:28.

Express still has its crusade. Get us out of the EU. Britain voted to

:05:29.:05:34.

get out, but clearly, this is unfinished bids. We will see this

:05:35.:05:39.

red badge. They are worried about backsliding. They think people like

:05:40.:05:42.

Boris Johnson and Theresa May want to stay part of the customs union

:05:43.:05:47.

and will look for a half way house, maybe a seven year pause, you know,

:05:48.:05:52.

an emergency break on migration but in the end pleemt in after seven

:05:53.:05:56.

years. There is a very important story on the front-page of the Daily

:05:57.:06:00.

Telegraph, working in an office is as bad as smoking they are saying. I

:06:01.:06:05.

knew working was bad for me! Me! Working if you are sitting. This is

:06:06.:06:11.

bad news for anyone who spends hours like many of us do sitting at a desk

:06:12.:06:16.

looking a a computer. It is bad as smoke, it is as dangerous as obesity

:06:17.:06:22.

and it affects millions of people. So the cress VIPPion, the study --

:06:23.:06:27.

prescription, the authors say is to get up and do an how twice as much

:06:28.:06:34.

as previous current standards are, recommendation an hour of rigorous

:06:35.:06:38.

exercise every day, the good news is that welcome back walking at

:06:39.:06:42.

threemph, whether and you aggregate it, so if you walk to the coffee me

:06:43.:06:47.

a stheen counts. The thing I love about this is they have radical

:06:48.:06:53.

changes, suggestions are, to put bus stops further apart. Close streets

:06:54.:06:58.

to cars at weekends... When you see that headline you think, you are

:06:59.:07:02.

right, I should give up. Stop working, but they want you do stand

:07:03.:07:08.

up. Work in a more active way. Yes, I think of those treadmills that

:07:09.:07:12.

some people have, when you are walking all the time. That would be

:07:13.:07:16.

a solution, rather an expensive one. It is funny, we look at the

:07:17.:07:21.

headlines you think they will tell you something about poor air quality

:07:22.:07:26.

in the office or something bad about sitting at a desk but it isn't. It

:07:27.:07:31.

is the associated thing, they assume go with 12 hours or eight hours in

:07:32.:07:34.

an office. Probably eating at your desk. Not eating good food. Lots of

:07:35.:07:40.

coffee, sugar harks is what I assume they are going to break down. For

:07:41.:07:45.

me, I don't work in an office, I wok from home and travel. You should be

:07:46.:07:49.

all right. I should be OK. I am closer to 50 than to 40. I know you

:07:50.:07:53.

find that hard to imagine. I do. Wow. Most people I know, would not

:07:54.:08:01.

be satisfied by 60 minutes of brisk walking a day, you know, we are

:08:02.:08:08.

looking at the calory, we are on the cross trainer and we bust 600

:08:09.:08:11.

calories in half an hour. Let us move on a bit. Stay with the

:08:12.:08:16.

Telegraph. They are focussing on a story tomorrow which many people are

:08:17.:08:21.

of course, the e-mail, what has happened to the day in the States.

:08:22.:08:25.

This extraordinary. This is the first time a Presidential candidate

:08:26.:08:29.

appears to have, he is backtracking on it and we will talk about Donald

:08:30.:08:34.

Trump encouraged a foreign state that it does not have good relations

:08:35.:08:41.

with the US right now, to hack into a former Secretary of State's e-mail

:08:42.:08:47.

can't in order to find 30,000 e-mails that have gone missing. --

:08:48.:08:53.

account. Hillary Clinton has this lingering controversy over e-mails

:08:54.:08:57.

deleted from her private server when she was Secretary of State. The

:08:58.:09:00.

extraordinary thing is, this is a real sign of how the American

:09:01.:09:04.

electorate has reacted to this, immediately after the phrase Donald

:09:05.:09:09.

Trump treason, surged in internet searches. It is hard to, you start

:09:10.:09:16.

to think when Trump will edge towards criminality. This is a guy

:09:17.:09:22.

who said he could shoot somebody live on TV and he wouldn't get

:09:23.:09:28.

arrested. He has encouraged people to punch protestor, it seems he can

:09:29.:09:33.

do nothing, even encouraging Putin or Putin's cronies to break in to

:09:34.:09:38.

Hillary's server. Some would say that is unAmerican, you know,

:09:39.:09:42.

Americans normally hate Communism but maybe because Trump sees himself

:09:43.:09:47.

as a successful strong leader and he sees Putin as a strong leader, this

:09:48.:09:52.

talk of bromance is real. He pushes it further and you every day you

:09:53.:09:57.

think this guy can't get more extreme, or more, you know surprise

:09:58.:10:02.

us any more, I think he surprises his owned a vicars because today

:10:03.:10:05.

they have tried to dial this back a bit on Twitter and we have seen this

:10:06.:10:09.

pattern over and over again and Trump himself says I didn't real

:10:10.:10:12.

slay that, but it is there in black-and-white. You think this will

:10:13.:10:16.

come back to haunt him when they get to the debates and his lack of

:10:17.:10:22.

knowledge and integrity on Foreign Affairs is cruelly exposed. The

:10:23.:10:26.

thyme, a lovely picture of Theresa May and her Italian counterpart

:10:27.:10:30.

looking jolly. But the main story they are focussing on is a cure, the

:10:31.:10:38.

first drug to halt Alzheimer's. This is big news, potentially for

:10:39.:10:41.

hundreds of millions of people round the world. Alz is a huge problem and

:10:42.:10:47.

it is getting worse and for year, researchers have struggled to find a

:10:48.:10:53.

drug that will stop the decline mental decline, this drug, which is

:10:54.:10:59.

in its final stage, it is still not approved, appears to have stopped

:11:00.:11:03.

mental decline for 18 month, in some patients. Current drugs don't do

:11:04.:11:09.

that, they just lesson the symptoms of have Alzheimer's. It is very

:11:10.:11:14.

excite, normally very very cautious about medical breakthroughs because

:11:15.:11:18.

they make the front-pages. They are still being cautious but it's a

:11:19.:11:22.

certain 15% that it is, they have shown amazing results. Yes,

:11:23.:11:27.

particularly in terms of the brain capacity, so key air areas of the

:11:28.:11:33.

brains of the patients in the trial shrank a third less than others in

:11:34.:11:36.

the trial. When you get results that dramatic, they stop the trial and

:11:37.:11:40.

say it is too powerful, ethically we have to tell people what has

:11:41.:11:43.

happened here. I think that is what happened. The i then. Another happy

:11:44.:11:49.

story. The ice bucket challenge, remember that? Yes. You did it. I

:11:50.:11:55.

don't think sitting round this table did. I would like to say I have done

:11:56.:12:03.

other charitable things since, but three points for guessing who the

:12:04.:12:07.

five people are there on the top. We have a sneak preview. The most

:12:08.:12:13.

obvious one is Benedict Cumberbatch, then through great research Clare

:12:14.:12:17.

Balding and I have had to scribble some of them I confess. Christian

:12:18.:12:25.

Horner from Red Bull, NFL coach and a rugby player Ben Foden. I thought

:12:26.:12:30.

I was going to win the prize. I had a producer who told me. But but you

:12:31.:12:34.

have done it yourselves. The good news they have been able to carry

:12:35.:12:39.

out amazing research. We were talking about huge amounts of money,

:12:40.:12:45.

?88 million through a kind of, the summer of 2014. Everyone got

:12:46.:12:54.

involved. Bill Gates and Oprah. Even in Iran. You can directly link money

:12:55.:12:59.

generated over a particular period of time with a specific

:13:00.:13:02.

breakthrough, it is normally very difficult do that, so we are talking

:13:03.:13:08.

about 8 o 0 researchers and something called NEK 1. They have

:13:09.:13:11.

identified this gene and found something to treat it. We must leave

:13:12.:13:13.

it there. Don't forget all the front pages

:13:14.:13:17.

are online on the BBC News website where you can read a detailed review

:13:18.:13:20.

of the papers. It is all there for you accept days

:13:21.:13:28.

at week on the website. And you can see us there too with

:13:29.:13:34.

the edition of The Papers being posted shortly on the page just

:13:35.:13:37.

after we finish. Thanks to Henry and Matt. See you again. We will be back

:13:38.:13:39.

after the weather.
