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

:00:13.:00:15.

With me are the Daily Telegraph media commentator Neil Midgley

:00:16.:00:23.

and columnist at the London Evening Standard Rosamund Urwin.

:00:24.:00:33.

Tomorrow's front pages, starting with

:00:34.:00:35.

the Metro celebrates Team Gb's sporting heroes -

:00:36.:00:40.

claiming the country is now an 'Olympic Superpower'.

:00:41.:00:43.

Mo Farah's joyful leap is pictured in the Mail

:00:44.:00:45.

with speculation that many medallists will be rewarded

:00:46.:00:47.

Team Gb's flag bearer for tonight's closing ceremony

:00:48.:00:53.

Kate-Richardson Walsh is on the front of the Times -

:00:54.:00:55.

fresh from winning gold in the women's hockey.

:00:56.:00:59.

The Sun highlights Britain's second place in the medal table -

:01:00.:01:05.

with a higher tally than at London 2012

:01:06.:01:07.

The Guardian bids a fond farewell to Rio after 17 days

:01:08.:01:12.

Its main story accuses the NHS in England of a disgraceful lack

:01:13.:01:22.

of diversity with white men in the majority of top jobs.

:01:23.:01:25.

The Express claims die-hard City pessimists are eating their words

:01:26.:01:29.

about the state of the post-Brexit economy.

:01:30.:01:34.

In contrast - a sharp fall in spending on big

:01:35.:01:36.

The paper says new Prime Minister Theresa May is not acting quickly

:01:37.:01:40.

enough to rebuild the economy following the vote to leave the EU.

:01:41.:01:47.

We have picked up some of those stories to talk about. Good evening

:01:48.:02:00.

to you both. In The Metro, a brilliant front pageant yet they

:02:01.:02:09.

could not fit everybody on there. 67 medals over all and some team

:02:10.:02:19.

medals. Clearly, gold-medal winning here as our brilliant and deserve

:02:20.:02:23.

all the recognition that the list also has silver and bronze medallist

:02:24.:02:34.

people like the silver medal winner in the gymnastics, 16 years old. The

:02:35.:02:42.

girl who won in trampolining, of all things... I love the trampolining

:02:43.:02:49.

story. I didn't know it was an alien export! She said... They asked her

:02:50.:02:58.

about she think there would be key to getting on the trampoline and she

:02:59.:03:02.

seemed absolutely delighted at the idea. The nice thing about being

:03:03.:03:09.

British is that we do celebrate the bronze. We are not like the Chinese

:03:10.:03:17.

crying over silver and bronze, which state sometimes do. So the, who won

:03:18.:03:27.

the hammer throw. She used to do ballet. It is a lovely story. The

:03:28.:03:36.

first Team GB women on-field Mandel. How is it that! . -- medal. Any of

:03:37.:03:53.

you who saw the Laura Trott's show, and the fact that she was a sickly

:03:54.:03:58.

child. The stories behind the athletes are absolutely fantastic.

:03:59.:04:06.

Just for example coming back from having a baby. For most women it is

:04:07.:04:15.

routine but for her to come back... And have that sixpack. Turning to

:04:16.:04:24.

the front page of the daily mile - look at that smile. -- Daily Mail.

:04:25.:04:36.

Another double. After a double in London but now we think he has set

:04:37.:04:41.

his sights on the marathon say he will presumably not doing the same

:04:42.:04:49.

events. Not doing a triple double? Like Usain Bolt. Do you think he is

:04:50.:04:56.

going to be in the honours list somewhere? I suspect he will be. I

:04:57.:05:08.

think we'll he headlines. A lot of Mo Farah's success he has put down

:05:09.:05:15.

to his ties with his children and family. His band a lot of time away

:05:16.:05:21.

from his family, though. Every interview, he lists off the name of

:05:22.:05:31.

his children, devoting his medals to them. In The Times, the story of

:05:32.:05:38.

demand for possibly there will be on the honours list. What did you make

:05:39.:05:46.

of this? One of the issues is that there is a quieter of how many

:05:47.:05:51.

sports people get. It eerie, they could not give everybody won. They

:05:52.:06:01.

are asking again to relax those rules. -- in theory. Coaches also

:06:02.:06:11.

need to be rewarded because a lot of them make it almost sacrifices and

:06:12.:06:18.

perhaps our unsung heroes. I was not aware there was a quote. By my quick

:06:19.:06:30.

maths, 63 gongs and when you have 67 medals, that presents you with a

:06:31.:06:38.

challenge. The Paralympians felt they were not given the same weight

:06:39.:06:46.

after the London Olympics. Particularly, when you look at the

:06:47.:06:53.

David Cameron's excerpts least, if a stylist and get one and press chief

:06:54.:07:01.

can get a knighthood... It points to the fact that it is almost

:07:02.:07:05.

diminishing the significant if everybody is going to get them. Like

:07:06.:07:14.

you said, if a stylist gets one. There needs to be a criteria. It

:07:15.:07:23.

should not just be patronage. With sports starts, they need to be

:07:24.:07:27.

encouraging people into that spot are getting young people and lots of

:07:28.:07:32.

them do a huge... I think it clearly does do that. I know how much

:07:33.:07:45.

Gessica -- Gessica and is does that -- Ennis. Doing exercise, being

:07:46.:07:55.

sporty, not doing the traditional thing of losing interest in their

:07:56.:08:01.

teenage years. There is this programme, called these girls can

:08:02.:08:07.

and they have done this on the back of Olympic Games, tackling mental

:08:08.:08:15.

problems through sport. Moving on to our next story but staying in The

:08:16.:08:22.

Times... Did you see that? LAUGHTER. Worrying story. We are aware of it.

:08:23.:08:33.

There is a lot of detail... It is looking at an unhappiness at the

:08:34.:08:37.

damage particularly in middle-class teenage girls. The huge number

:08:38.:08:43.

suffering with anxiety and depression. A study of 30,000

:08:44.:08:47.

teenagers. One of the things it notes quite low down, the teenage

:08:48.:08:55.

rebellious behaviour that drinking, drug taking, smoking- have really

:08:56.:09:07.

fall in over the past years. They do spend a lot of time on media... That

:09:08.:09:13.

is a double edged sword. They are spending a lot of time on that and

:09:14.:09:17.

also they do not want to be photographed on that drunk or off

:09:18.:09:23.

their faces because they are savvy enough to think it might affect the

:09:24.:09:27.

rest of their lives. There is a lot of pressure for them to perform in

:09:28.:09:33.

school so some really worrying things about unhappiness. It points

:09:34.:09:38.

to the fact that if you come from a family where your parents are

:09:39.:09:43.

possibly educated to a degree level, you are more likely to suffer from

:09:44.:09:51.

this level of anxiety? To an extent it follows high expectations both

:09:52.:09:56.

from the parents and from the kids. Today's children are rays,

:09:57.:10:02.

particularly in affluent parental situations, affluent toys, clothes,

:10:03.:10:13.

consumer goodies -- children are raised. We cannot get it right, can

:10:14.:10:19.

we. Let's move on. Good news possibly according to The Express.

:10:20.:10:24.

What are they saying we should be happy about? LAUGHTER. Why are you

:10:25.:10:34.

looking at me to pick this one up. Despite Brexit, which obviously is a

:10:35.:10:41.

widely regarded as a big economic shock, an analysis... Sorry, a

:10:42.:10:49.

survey of the financial industry has indicated that bosses are broadly

:10:50.:10:54.

confident of weathering the post Brexit storm. Obviously, the paper

:10:55.:10:58.

has an agenda on these but there have been some positive signals over

:10:59.:11:04.

the last couple of weeks - jobless figures are better than expected,

:11:05.:11:09.

retail figures are better than expected. The FT you mentioned, is

:11:10.:11:15.

however reporting that infrastructure contracts are down so

:11:16.:11:21.

a mixed picture. Pushing you on to the next story in The Guardian. What

:11:22.:11:31.

have the NHS being saying? This is people at the top. The NHS actually

:11:32.:11:39.

has a diverse workforce, and a lot of women in it they are not well

:11:40.:11:46.

represented amongst trust shares. 2% of NHS Trust are chaired by people

:11:47.:11:58.

from minorities. Extraordinary load. There is a suggestion that people

:11:59.:12:04.

are pointing at the image and not seeking a wider pool. Is it about

:12:05.:12:11.

who you know? There is a bit of that. Or what you look like.

:12:12.:12:17.

Obviously a big public sector organisation wrestles with these and

:12:18.:12:23.

very few are getting it right. It is a difficult problem to address

:12:24.:12:28.

because you either put in a quota, like sky television said 20% of

:12:29.:12:32.

talent both on screen and behind have to be black African minorities.

:12:33.:12:39.

But you do not necessarily have the right person. If you have to fulfil

:12:40.:12:47.

a quota, you do not necessarily end up with the right person in the

:12:48.:12:53.

right job. A lot of people from the AME backgrounds, as they call them

:12:54.:13:02.

now, they want the job on merit. There should be a level, I tend to

:13:03.:13:07.

think. Because then you can still pick the best but do we have someone

:13:08.:13:17.

we might sometimes overlook. We have about 30 seconds, it is not about

:13:18.:13:21.

poor handwriting, what else could possibly be letting down students?

:13:22.:13:31.

The exams will be scanned into a computer and the examiner will not

:13:32.:13:39.

be able to read it. You have been warned. It has been a pleasure.

:13:40.:13:49.

Coming up next on BBC News we have the Film Mitchell review.

:13:50.:13:57.
