Hello, welcome to our look ahead to all of the papers, I will be with

:00:17.:00:24.

Claire Coen, the women's editor for the Telegraph, and Charlie Wells.

:00:25.:00:28.

The features editor. We will start with the Metro and its front page

:00:29.:00:33.

splashes gongs for gold, the paper says that the Prime Minister is

:00:34.:00:38.

poised to the Olympic heroes with a debut job on us. The Financial Times

:00:39.:00:42.

leads with what is called a post Brexit pledge not to allow Britain's

:00:43.:00:47.

exit to drive European project into reverse. The Daily Telegraph quotes

:00:48.:00:52.

a new report from the student of Cancer research saying that, and

:00:53.:00:56.

replacement therapy triples the risk of breast cancer. The Daily Express

:00:57.:01:01.

says that cause duties border security in Europe have sparked

:01:02.:01:03.

fury. And women are still far adrift when it and promotion compare to

:01:04.:01:22.

men. The paper quotes the stewed for fiscal studies that says that on

:01:23.:01:24.

average women and 18% less than average. The Daily Mail leads on

:01:25.:01:27.

what it calls the rising toll of patients seriously hurt in blunders

:01:28.:01:29.

by the NHS. And the Times says that China has taken control of North Sea

:01:30.:01:32.

oil drilling, it calls their rigs strategic weapons. Talking about the

:01:33.:01:37.

Olympics. Far more elevated. Gongs for gold, made to honour Olympic

:01:38.:01:48.

heroes. Sir Mo, Daimler. Yes. Shows no sign of abating, Olympic fever,

:01:49.:01:53.

we're told that they will rip up guidelines and honour the triumph.

:01:54.:01:59.

We will become the first home country to perform so well. It

:02:00.:02:03.

deserves to be celebrated, and I wonder whether this will be seen as

:02:04.:02:07.

an extra incentive for young athletes coming up, that they might

:02:08.:02:11.

get a gong at the end of it all. I'm sure that there will no doubt be

:02:12.:02:17.

some curmudgeons saying, that the golden system is flawed and has lost

:02:18.:02:22.

its meaning. And also a very nice detail, on the front of the Metro,

:02:23.:02:27.

saying there will be recognition of support teams behind the medallists.

:02:28.:02:34.

Coaches, nutritionists. The backroom staff have not had much recognition

:02:35.:02:39.

so that is really nice. So what is the problem then, and the stylist of

:02:40.:02:44.

Mr Hobsbawm, potentially being put forward with a gong -- Mr Osborne.

:02:45.:02:50.

Perhaps there was not a problem. I'm sure many would disagree. Each one

:02:51.:02:58.

of these gongs apparently costs, each one of these medals cost ?4.1

:02:59.:03:04.

million apparently. That is expensive, not the question has

:03:05.:03:09.

been, funding Olympic development. What the UK has certainly seen is

:03:10.:03:12.

that when you pour re-sources into the athletic training, there seems

:03:13.:03:19.

to be a benefit. A clear benefit. But no one seems to mind really, out

:03:20.:03:24.

in the wider public because while we have all got the feel-good factor,

:03:25.:03:30.

secondly it is not public money taken in taxes, it is national

:03:31.:03:35.

lottery money that we have all volunteered by scratching cards. It

:03:36.:03:43.

doesn't feel as if we had been scanned in this? It has not been

:03:44.:03:48.

taken from our pockets in the same way, and in the last few turbulent

:03:49.:03:51.

weeks we definitely need this to bring the country back together and

:03:52.:03:55.

everybody is feeling really up about it. It is a feel-good factor for the

:03:56.:03:59.

nation so why not award the people who made it happen. Exactly, one of

:04:00.:04:06.

the gold medallists in the four by 100 relay, for the night estates in

:04:07.:04:11.

swimming was a certain Ryan Lochte. He has been a naughty boy by his own

:04:12.:04:15.

admission. He was not as candid as he should have been about a

:04:16.:04:19.

so-called robbery. Now his sponsors are fleeing for the hills? Writes so

:04:20.:04:25.

this story certainly picking up steam, Americans pay a lot of

:04:26.:04:30.

attention to corporate sponsors, and a lot of attention to the

:04:31.:04:34.

commercials at the Olympics. As a child I am talking about the

:04:35.:04:37.

competitions but also about the commercials that flooded the

:04:38.:04:43.

airwaves. So here, we have got a major former sponsor, like

:04:44.:05:03.

Ralph Lauren, Speedo, saying that they can no longer back him, because

:05:04.:05:07.

his behaviour is not necessarily in line with their brands. It seems

:05:08.:05:09.

like it will cost him about $1 million. It is going to be

:05:10.:05:11.

expensive. America ended at the top of the medals table and usually

:05:12.:05:14.

does, usually more than the Russians or the Chinese. Is this the kind of

:05:15.:05:17.

incident that could take the gloss off it? Yes there has been stories

:05:18.:05:19.

about how this is overshadowing a lot of positive news stories about

:05:20.:05:22.

certain athletes that have broken milestones. What we also know is

:05:23.:05:24.

that the limb picks is about soft power. It is about countries

:05:25.:05:28.

projecting positive narratives about their people, and right now, the

:05:29.:05:35.

US's soft power is tarnished a little bit with this story. It would

:05:36.:05:45.

be great to focus on somebody, instead, we are focusing on an

:05:46.:05:50.

athlete, and his misbehaviour. Wasn't he trying to become a reality

:05:51.:05:55.

TV star? A lot of Olympic athletes will go on to try and lay their

:05:56.:06:03.

success. But Americans pay a lot of attention to these large

:06:04.:06:07.

corporations, and it could put them at risk. And I think Americans are

:06:08.:06:11.

less forgiving, Ryan Lochte was saying that he was intoxicated and

:06:12.:06:16.

he can't remember what happened. He was immature. It wasn't as candid in

:06:17.:06:21.

his own words stop and we might be more forgiving than Americans.

:06:22.:06:27.

Rulli? Yes we hold them to a very high standard, the drinking. But it

:06:28.:06:35.

is not what he did but the life. Yes it is the cover-up, always the

:06:36.:06:40.

cover-up. European leaders talking about an EU army. You can argue that

:06:41.:06:46.

they are trying to cover up the cracks in the European Union after

:06:47.:06:52.

Brexit? They are insisting that they are not disheartened. It is going to

:06:53.:06:58.

be fine. You have got this impactful picture of them striding, in a James

:06:59.:07:05.

Bond thing, very choreographed. As the Daily Telegraph says. But the

:07:06.:07:09.

story is about plans for the EU army, which is something that we

:07:10.:07:13.

keep on hearing about time and again, apparently they are going to

:07:14.:07:15.

accelerate his plan in the wake of the British departure. The

:07:16.:07:19.

suggestion is that Britain was something of a stumbling block. And

:07:20.:07:23.

they are talking about sharing intelligence, sharing defence for

:07:24.:07:27.

sis. This is not the end of Europe's. Not at all. Is this the

:07:28.:07:33.

kind of thing, that would have the Pentagon thinking wow, or oh my god.

:07:34.:07:38.

Yes, what is interesting, is it is talking about this European army

:07:39.:07:44.

risks undermining Nato's role as the primary European defence block. So

:07:45.:07:49.

what would the relationship be? It is a tricking one. Daschle tricky

:07:50.:08:02.

one. Onto HRT risks. HRT triples the risk of breast cancer. Is it a

:08:03.:08:09.

reputable study? We hear those studies about HRT, mired in

:08:10.:08:13.

confusion and controversy, since being the 80s or the 90s miracle

:08:14.:08:18.

drug that was supposed to help menopausal women feed a lot better.

:08:19.:08:22.

This is a reputable is buddy from the astute of Cancer research, under

:08:23.:08:27.

powers and women over 40 years. There is node and nine that it is

:08:28.:08:31.

comprehensive. They are saying that women who use it are three times

:08:32.:08:35.

more likely to develop breast cancer, they say that the risks of

:08:36.:08:40.

illness, taking the drug had been previously understated. That comes

:08:41.:08:44.

in contrast to nice changing their guidelines at the end of last year,

:08:45.:08:49.

saying that women need not suffer in silence and more doctors should be

:08:50.:08:53.

prescribing this. It is a major study but I feel that the confusion

:08:54.:08:57.

around it is going to continue and it is hard to say that it is

:08:58.:09:02.

absolutely safe. Like a lot of things in the medical sphere,

:09:03.:09:05.

difficult to know what the truth is, and what you can believe and not

:09:06.:09:09.

believe. It is really important to read past the headline, we see that

:09:10.:09:15.

scary word in the headline, and then be go on to read, about individual

:09:16.:09:22.

choice. And about, how the symptoms of menopause can be "Hellish" for

:09:23.:09:28.

women. So perhaps there are benefits of this drug that outweigh the

:09:29.:09:33.

potential risks. That highlights how difficult medical decisions are,

:09:34.:09:36.

they are not necessarily black or white. There is a lot of talk about

:09:37.:09:44.

Ethan, you may have family risk. By dating this gives people the answers

:09:45.:09:50.

they are looking for. Talking about medicine. Patients is the hurt in

:09:51.:09:57.

NHS blunders? Right, a lot of medical experts saying that blunders

:09:58.:10:01.

are a sign of health care system is under strain. We have been reading

:10:02.:10:06.

time and again about the NHS, I think from a journalistic

:10:07.:10:11.

perspective, we should keep in mind, this story, compares figures to the

:10:12.:10:17.

current year, two 2005. Why we are looking at that particular year. We

:10:18.:10:22.

also see some figures compared to 2014, why are we looking at those

:10:23.:10:28.

particular years. It says that the patient treated by the HS, 90

:10:29.:10:32.

minutes following a serious medical blunder. More than 6000 incidents

:10:33.:10:39.

involving accidental cuts, punches, perforations or haemorrhages? It

:10:40.:10:43.

sounds pretty grim, critics of Jeremy Hunt's seven-day NHS will use

:10:44.:10:48.

this as ammunition and talk about poor training levels and inadequate

:10:49.:10:56.

staff. NHS statisticians comparing NHS figures with other NHS figures,

:10:57.:11:02.

it is hard to pick it. I think more detail is needed really. The quality

:11:03.:11:07.

drive fails to barge the wage gap for higher educated women over two

:11:08.:11:14.

decades. This problem has persisted, despite efforts at cutting the gap.

:11:15.:11:21.

It is pretty depressing reading, two studies out tomorrow, one is from

:11:22.:11:25.

the Institute for Fiscal Studies. Talking about women earning 18% less

:11:26.:11:31.

than men. Closing date pay gap which is stalling, and one from the CM

:11:32.:11:37.

icon that how male managers, are 40% more likely to be promoted than

:11:38.:11:42.

female managers. I think the main point for me to take out of it is

:11:43.:11:46.

the motherhood penalty, which is something that rumbles on and on. It

:11:47.:11:51.

is good to have cold stats to talk about this. Women, maternity

:11:52.:11:57.

discrimination essentially, for women aged 26 to 35, the gender pay

:11:58.:12:04.

gap is 6% but when you get to 36, he jumps to 20%, women going off to

:12:05.:12:09.

maternity leave, and suddenly, they find that they come back and they

:12:10.:12:15.

are sidelined. I think it is 54,000 women a year RS to make it to be

:12:16.:12:19.

squeezed out of work through maternity leave. -- are estimated.

:12:20.:12:24.

And there is not a lot of transparency. Is that the problem,

:12:25.:12:31.

no transparency, sexist bosses who whatever? There are a number of

:12:32.:12:38.

factors, what we are seeing is time. Overcoming, centuries of inequality,

:12:39.:12:43.

takes a long time. Something that is interesting is that we are starting

:12:44.:12:47.

to see the narrative shift towards the upper echelons, women who are

:12:48.:12:52.

highly educated. The Wall Street Journal had a story about corporate

:12:53.:12:56.

boards, talking about more diversity, so that is an interesting

:12:57.:13:04.

change, in the debate. Overturning centuries of patriarchal system in

:13:05.:13:09.

20 years? But it is interesting, you say sex but I think a lot of it is

:13:10.:13:13.

more than sexism, a male boss might think that a woman wants a less

:13:14.:13:17.

challenging role, when they come back from maternity leave. Right we

:13:18.:13:26.

are gay to be purely sex is now, we are going to talk about -- we are

:13:27.:13:32.

going to be purely sexist now, we are going to talk about Poldark.

:13:33.:13:38.

Within 15 minutes he's bearing his chest apparently. Let us see it, why

:13:39.:13:44.

not. We haven't got the picture. Oh no! This is going to be acquired

:13:45.:13:54.

viewing for a lot of people over the next few weeks. It is quite

:13:55.:13:59.

interesting because between the first series and the second series,

:14:00.:14:03.

quite a few people have been po-faced. Aidan Turner, his co-stars

:14:04.:14:11.

have said. We have got our act together, there it is. They have

:14:12.:14:16.

said that all of the focus on his top list shots is sexist. In the

:14:17.:14:22.

first years they didn't know how big a deal this was going to be, they're

:14:23.:14:28.

coming into the second series with a knowing hive. I don't think it is

:14:29.:14:32.

any car incident is that within 15 minutes we will see his chest. But

:14:33.:14:36.

all I can say is that as a male, seeing that image, if I didn't have

:14:37.:14:41.

my kind of chest I would not be wearing my seat right now. Bad is it

:14:42.:14:48.

for the papers, don't forget, all the front pages are online -- that

:14:49.:14:53.

is it. It is all there for you, seven days a week. You can see us

:14:54.:15:00.

there too, with each edition of the papers being posted shortly after we

:15:01.:15:06.

finish. So thanks again, thanks to you. Much more at the top of the

:15:07.:15:07.

tower. -- the tower. A warm night for many of us turning

:15:08.:15:23.

misty and murky, and over the next

:15:24.:15:24.

No need to wait until tomorrow morning to see what's in the papers - tune in for a lively and informed conversation about the next day's headlines.
