Whenever you're ready, although, thank you. Thank you to look ahead

:00:19.:00:23.

at what the papers will be bringing us tomorrow with as campaigner,

:00:24.:00:28.

broadcaster and journalist David. Most of the year. And the assistant

:00:29.:00:34.

editor of The Times. Do you not love the colour palette? It is like the

:00:35.:00:40.

Brazil Carnival and here. Breaks it has contribute it to a boost in

:00:41.:00:44.

sales of Bordeaux wines. Jessica in a cell in action on the first day of

:00:45.:00:49.

the heptathlon in Rio. Olympic glory as Britain's called metal rowers

:00:50.:00:55.

across the front page. Families will be hit with a ?250

:00:56.:01:01.

holiday tax with increases in air passenger duty, VAT and insurance on

:01:02.:01:03.

the way. Then the story that makes many of

:01:04.:01:08.

the others, news of the chances pledging to honour funding to firms

:01:09.:01:17.

scientists so they not lose out after two. 'S then Team GB roars

:01:18.:01:22.

holding their Olympic gold medals aloft. Will be back in the Velodrome

:01:23.:01:27.

very soon, when we see Bradley Wiggins is about to raise with his

:01:28.:01:30.

colleagues. Team-mates, not colleagues! Let's start with the

:01:31.:01:36.

Telegraph. Subsidies will not be cut after Brexit, this is a pledge from

:01:37.:01:41.

the chances. It is in fact the first big statement about our chances has

:01:42.:01:46.

made. He had pledged to reset the economy and he is going to start by

:01:47.:01:51.

making good all the money that you thought you were going to lose if

:01:52.:01:57.

you were a farmer or a research scientist, all those different types

:01:58.:01:59.

of funding that you got from the EU, you're going to receive its just the

:02:00.:02:03.

same. He is going to tell us all about it at some point this week,

:02:04.:02:09.

but he has given the newspaper a very strong steer that those

:02:10.:02:11.

subsidies will remain in place. No comments from Brussels yet on what

:02:12.:02:14.

they think about this, because this seems to run counter to how we

:02:15.:02:19.

contribute to the EU, and free movement and everything else. But he

:02:20.:02:24.

is a lot is going to happen. ?4 billion, people wanted to know how

:02:25.:02:27.

long he will be able to afford it and for the money is coming from.

:02:28.:02:31.

Exactly. After we're just going through austerity for so long, it

:02:32.:02:34.

seems amazing to me that he is something of this money now. Like

:02:35.:02:37.

you were saying, it is about keeping the economy going. He is talking

:02:38.:02:40.

about infrastructure projects, talking about things that actually

:02:41.:02:44.

might help the economy. So, you know, it seems amazing that is going

:02:45.:02:48.

to happen because that was a big fear amongst farmers and university

:02:49.:02:51.

researchers and all those sorts of areas, that the money would

:02:52.:02:55.

disappear. Also, there were some feeling that we might be going into

:02:56.:02:59.

mild recession in December. He wants to stop that happening. FT Weekend

:03:00.:03:04.

think that Bordeaux vintners are raising a glass to Brexit because

:03:05.:03:08.

they have got a five-year high in the wine sales. Can you explain why

:03:09.:03:15.

briefly? Maybe not! It is quite complicated. It is not really my

:03:16.:03:19.

area but I was fascinated to find out that a cartoon, it is not a

:03:20.:03:22.

garden, is that? A case, you see how both I am, a case of wine that was

:03:23.:03:29.

45,000 is now only 20 6000. It is a snap. It is because all these

:03:30.:03:39.

beautiful wines are kicked in bonded warehouses in the UK, President

:03:40.:03:44.

Starling, becoming a bargain for worldwide buyers and the Chinese are

:03:45.:03:46.

buying fine wines like no tomorrow. The Times, page two, new grammar

:03:47.:03:54.

schools limited to 20 working-class areas, why? It does actually say

:03:55.:03:57.

here that this government will be far less interested in raising the

:03:58.:04:03.

bottom 10% than they are about middle earners and those who are

:04:04.:04:08.

working and on benefits. So they are targeting these skills into possibly

:04:09.:04:17.

poorer areas, but they are going for the kind of next gridlock. As

:04:18.:04:21.

somebody who did not do very well at school, it is the bottom 10% I am

:04:22.:04:24.

worried about, not the rest. I would like to Bosnia and go to the

:04:25.:04:27.

Velodrome to see Bradley Wiggins and his team-mates compete in the final

:04:28.:04:32.

of the men's pursuit. -- I would like to go to Brazil. COMMENTATOR:

:04:33.:04:37.

Twice already and Olympic champion in this event. Can Great Britain

:04:38.:04:41.

make it a hat-trick? They were beaten by Australia in the world

:04:42.:04:45.

champion Joe final a few months ago. Clancy the best starter in the

:04:46.:04:56.

world. The race for gold and are! 16 laps of the track. Australia against

:04:57.:05:01.

Great Britain. Australia the world champions. Some gaps forming already

:05:02.:05:06.

in the Australian team. They are usually the fastest starter but they

:05:07.:05:09.

have not been in this competition. It is Britain that has been getting

:05:10.:05:16.

their nose in front from the goal and I think they are going to do

:05:17.:05:19.

that again. Maybe not, in fact. Britain were treated at the pressure

:05:20.:05:23.

on it earlier but it is a great, strong start for Alex Edmondson on

:05:24.:05:25.

bass of Australia and made Jack is taking over, their national road

:05:26.:05:29.

rage Road race champion. Loads of experience. Stephen on the front for

:05:30.:05:33.

Great Britain. The Welsh man waits to do his turn. There is the first

:05:34.:05:36.

sighting of Bradley Wiggins in the final. He is not doing a long turn

:05:37.:05:40.

for his first run. He paid for that in the qualifying round. We saw a

:05:41.:05:44.

slight wobble from Ed Clancy of the start. That is what has cost them

:05:45.:05:51.

but they are getting back on terms additives Stephen on the front nine.

:05:52.:05:54.

He has been an excellent addition to the squad over the last couple of

:05:55.:05:56.

years. Elizabeth behind at the moment but they are not panicking.

:05:57.:06:03.

It is just 0.3 of a second. They are on schedule and you can be sure that

:06:04.:06:06.

if world-record pace they are going after. Still a long way to go. Just

:06:07.:06:10.

what a distance for these two teams in this Olympic final. Australia

:06:11.:06:14.

leading the way and the gap has gone up a bit. Australia trying to put

:06:15.:06:17.

the Brits under pressure. That change of man is made all the

:06:18.:06:19.

difference for the Australian. They have brought in some fresh legs

:06:20.:06:21.

there and it has given them confidence. They have gone out very

:06:22.:06:28.

strongly. Still .06 -- 0.6 of a second and Great Britain were taught

:06:29.:06:31.

to do. It is Wiggins riding on the front. Ed Clancy in their right

:06:32.:06:34.

behind him. Wiggins dragging the around here. It is going to go down

:06:35.:06:39.

to the wire, Versailles. That gap holding, if anything going out

:06:40.:06:45.

slightly, 0.6 of a second. They are going to have to do something

:06:46.:06:49.

special. On Britain -- it nearly all down to the wire. A real nailbiter.

:06:50.:06:54.

At the halfway mark, nearly seven tenths of a second and at the moment

:06:55.:07:06.

Australia. Look at the determination's business. We have

:07:07.:07:08.

now written like others before. Great Britain coming back. They have

:07:09.:07:13.

edged out the of a second on that last lap. The Road goes up in the

:07:14.:07:17.

Velodrome. It really is on the... On the wire now between these two. They

:07:18.:07:24.

have got six laps to go. Six laps and Australia identity already.

:07:25.:07:30.

Britain still staying as a four. They are coming back. Just 0.1

:07:31.:07:35.

second behind. Britain tried to keep this momentum going as we go into

:07:36.:07:39.

the closing stages of this race. Australia now suddenly the team

:07:40.:07:42.

being put under pressure. Britain staying strong. Looking neat,

:07:43.:07:46.

looking tidy. There is a gap in the Australian three and that could be

:07:47.:07:51.

fatal at this point. There are almost dead level. Australia are

:07:52.:07:59.

starting to look a little bit ragged. They are down to three and

:08:00.:08:06.

really are on the limit. It is tough for them now as Great Britain pile

:08:07.:08:08.

it on with Wiggins riding on the front. Wiggins has handed over now

:08:09.:08:11.

to Ed Clancy. Clancy has got Burke on his will. Do will then there

:08:12.:08:14.

well. The four of them still looking good. Still riding strongly. They

:08:15.:08:17.

are in frontier. Hundreds of a second between the teams. Britain

:08:18.:08:21.

not getting in front and tell right now. Last in the final, down to

:08:22.:08:25.

three, they are in the lead. Down to three, they are in the lead but only

:08:26.:08:28.

just. It is nail-biting! It is going to go right down to the wire. And

:08:29.:08:31.

now they take their eye, there is a gap in the British line-up. It is

:08:32.:08:34.

coming down to the last lap. Who has got that little bit extra in the

:08:35.:08:38.

legs? You can find the difference? Making the move to take them over

:08:39.:08:43.

the line in first place, will it be Britain or Australia? It certainly

:08:44.:08:46.

will be Great Britain! It will be Britain in a world-record time. The

:08:47.:08:54.

awesome foursome have done it. One of those baffling events. We do

:08:55.:08:57.

not understand what we have just watched, I have to confess, but we

:08:58.:09:01.

won. Taking all of the dreaded! Sitting on the edge of seats.

:09:02.:09:05.

Britain have taken gold in the main's final of the team pursuit.

:09:06.:09:08.

That means Bradley Wiggins has won his fifth gold medal. At the Olympic

:09:09.:09:14.

Games. That gives them a total of... Eight altogether. Is that right? He

:09:15.:09:19.

has already got seven full year of the most decorated British Olympian.

:09:20.:09:24.

Chris Hoy still has six goals. You do not need to remember all those!

:09:25.:09:32.

He's from Kentish Town. I used to live in Camden. Yes, speaking of the

:09:33.:09:36.

final. That was so exciting! We were there with them. We have got papers

:09:37.:09:42.

to do, though. So how long have we got, Ralph? Three minutes! Well, we

:09:43.:09:47.

will move on to some of the common oh, I will not do the Express, I

:09:48.:09:53.

will do the Guardian. The back page, Britain's Rovers striker who call.

:09:54.:10:00.

This is the women's pairs. This is Helen Glover and Heather stunning,

:10:01.:10:02.

who retained their title from 2012. They said it was even sweeter. And

:10:03.:10:07.

we are really good at sitting down sports. You do slide backwards and

:10:08.:10:11.

forwards. It is really hard work, rowing. I have never tried it. It is

:10:12.:10:20.

about the core. I have had a little. I would love to have a go. My godson

:10:21.:10:25.

was very good at it. Climbing up that medal table. We must be higher

:10:26.:10:34.

than that. And there they are again on the eye. This is the fifth

:10:35.:10:39.

consecutive Olympic title for the coxless fours. Team GB shooting up

:10:40.:10:42.

the medal table today as a result of that. We also saw Briony Page take

:10:43.:10:49.

the first trampolining medal, silver, in the individual

:10:50.:10:52.

trampoline. There really is travelling in? I thought somebody

:10:53.:10:56.

was joking! She looked like she was bouncing up and down on the ticker

:10:57.:11:00.

that goes along the bottom of screen when we were watching. Absolutely

:11:01.:11:04.

amazing. Times front-page tell us about this picture section. It is

:11:05.:11:08.

Jessica in a cell, got off to a good start with a 100 metre hurdles, she

:11:09.:11:14.

did win. But... I am perplexed as to why this picture was chosen rather

:11:15.:11:17.

than some of the other winners. This is a marvellous picture because it

:11:18.:11:20.

sums up this great movement. Remember, this needs to be an

:11:21.:11:24.

attractive, this is your front page, you're sitting at your store for

:11:25.:11:29.

what is in your paper and this is a really good, powerful picture that

:11:30.:11:32.

shows you movement but most importantly, you see all those empty

:11:33.:11:35.

seats at the back, which is one of the big scandals of the Olympics.

:11:36.:11:41.

These extraordinary events are happening in almost empty stadiums

:11:42.:11:46.

because local Brazilians either queuing outside to get in or cannot

:11:47.:11:50.

afford to get in. The dressage but we were watching earlier today, when

:11:51.:11:56.

Kyle was riding, very few people. A lot of the venues are quite far

:11:57.:12:01.

out... And the security is tough and their queuing outside. Also, there

:12:02.:12:04.

are a few refreshments are available so people have to go outside the

:12:05.:12:10.

venue to get a snack. You're very well-informed! This is why we like

:12:11.:12:13.

having you in. Finally, a cartoon on the Telegraph. Two more women

:12:14.:12:16.

chatting. Don't worry, I will just describe it. A man sitting watching

:12:17.:12:20.

the Olympics on television with as many cans of lager and a packet of

:12:21.:12:22.

crisps. The caption reads," ... You like that, don't you? That is

:12:23.:12:37.

the unfixed for me, that is me summed up! You are not interested,

:12:38.:12:46.

are you? I am now feeling it. We were feeling it just a minute ago.

:12:47.:12:50.

Bradley Wiggins has made an interested! That is great. Don't

:12:51.:12:54.

forget, all the front pages are online at the BBC news website, or

:12:55.:12:58.

you can read detail. It is therefore you seven days a week. You can see

:12:59.:13:04.

as there as well. Each night's edition of the papers is being

:13:05.:13:09.

posted shortly after we had finished. My guests will be back

:13:10.:13:12.

again at 11:15pm, getting our money 's worth! They will have a costume

:13:13.:13:20.

change. See you in a bit.
