Comedy scriptwriter Jimmy Perry, best known for several hugely

:00:00.:00:00.

popular BBC sitcoms including Dad's Army,

:00:00.:00:00.

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

:00:00.:00:15.

With me are Tom Bergin, who's a business correspondent

:00:16.:00:21.

for Reuters, and the writer and journalist, Lucy Cavendish.

:00:22.:00:24.

Tomorrow's front pages, starting with

:00:25.:00:27.

the Telegraph leads with the claim by the chair

:00:28.:00:30.

of the Airports Commission that the only viable option

:00:31.:00:32.

The paper also claims that the arrival of lone child

:00:33.:00:36.

migrants in a Devon town is concerning residents.

:00:37.:00:39.

to the migrant story, but focuses on the closure

:00:40.:00:44.

of what it calls the Calais migrant shanty town.

:00:45.:00:46.

It says fires blazed as migrants and police clashed.

:00:47.:00:49.

The Guardian also reports on the demolition

:00:50.:00:52.

of the Calais camp, and fears about the safety

:00:53.:00:54.

The paper also splashes on calls from Labour MPs to act over a legal

:00:55.:01:00.

precedent set in Ched Evans' rape retrial.

:01:01.:01:04.

Violence amid the closure of the Calais camp

:01:05.:01:07.

also dominates the Times' front page.

:01:08.:01:09.

It claims anarchists are stirring up trouble.

:01:10.:01:11.

The paper also has a report from northern Iraq on the fight

:01:12.:01:14.

against the Islamic State around Mosul.

:01:15.:01:21.

So, we'll begin with what's about to happen in Calais in the next few

:01:22.:01:27.

hours with the closure of this camp of several thousand migrants that's

:01:28.:01:34.

grown up over the last few years. Known as the Jungle. Here it is on

:01:35.:01:39.

the Telegraph with the main picture story showing police and migrants

:01:40.:01:44.

fighting running battles on the Yvonne of the enforcement of

:01:45.:01:48.

eviction orders. Some migrants saying, Tom, that this is the place

:01:49.:01:53.

they will insist upon staying if they want to come to Britain -- on

:01:54.:01:59.

the eve of. Yes, this is a launching point for a lot of migrants to come

:02:00.:02:03.

into the UK via trucks and things over the years. They're here because

:02:04.:02:07.

they have ties in the UK, some have family and they believe they have a

:02:08.:02:11.

better future here. There are aims to ship them to 300 centres around

:02:12.:02:15.

France that could be hundreds of miles away. They could move up the

:02:16.:02:20.

coast or other areas, potentially areas where they might be able to

:02:21.:02:25.

get in. Clearly they want to be there. And there's also talk of

:02:26.:02:30.

anarchists and others coming so there may be violence tomorrow or

:02:31.:02:36.

more violence in clearing the camp, it's unlikely to go without

:02:37.:02:40.

incident. Lucy, the other part of the story is that 70 migrants in

:02:41.:02:44.

their teens have found themselves in Devon? They are now in great

:02:45.:02:50.

Torrington. There seems to be a jewellery action to get. Some people

:02:51.:02:56.

are saying that's fine, others are saying they haven't been consulted

:02:57.:03:00.

in Torrington and they are a small place and 70 youths is a lot of

:03:01.:03:04.

people to come here. All in one go. All in one go. They have set up Bay

:03:05.:03:12.

Centre and some people have said it will be fine, but it will be

:03:13.:03:15.

interesting to see what the teenagers said -- Bay Centre. They

:03:16.:03:21.

always imagine it will be in the middle of London -- a centre. There

:03:22.:03:26.

are stories of people going to the middle of Scotland and they all want

:03:27.:03:29.

to leave because they can't bear it. I'm sure Great Torrington is a

:03:30.:03:36.

lovely place. As is Scotland. Yes, the middle of Scotland. Obviously

:03:37.:03:41.

this camp is being cleared, people will have to go somewhere. There's a

:03:42.:03:45.

lot of fears about what will happen. There's no register, what will

:03:46.:03:49.

happen to the people who fall through the net? The Times has the

:03:50.:03:56.

story about anarchists putting up a last stand against mass eviction and

:03:57.:03:59.

the concern about what happens to those lone children if they're not

:04:00.:04:04.

on a register and nobody can keep track of them. It's been a concern

:04:05.:04:08.

for the newspapers and it's been a story for decades, the Jungle has

:04:09.:04:13.

been this iconic thing and it's amazing how it has dominated the UK

:04:14.:04:17.

perception of migration to the country despite being so small,

:04:18.:04:22.

official numbers are around 7000 people. That's quite a lot to have

:04:23.:04:27.

in Calais. That is why it is such a story, surely? About 1 million

:04:28.:04:32.

people in Germany last year! So it's an enormous problem, the way in

:04:33.:04:36.

which it covers our perception of the issue of migration into the UK

:04:37.:04:42.

is strange giving the sheer size compared to others. And when we

:04:43.:04:46.

think about legal migration is a fraction. Let's stay with the Times,

:04:47.:04:53.

pointless treatments cost NHS ?2 billion a year. Where do these

:04:54.:04:58.

figures come from? About these have come from the Academy Medical Royal

:04:59.:05:03.

Colleges. They have told us something we know a bit, we have

:05:04.:05:07.

seen other studies where people go to the doctor and they end up

:05:08.:05:11.

getting treatments they don't need, maybe they get tablets because it

:05:12.:05:15.

makes them feel comfortable but they aren't made better by those tablets.

:05:16.:05:19.

It is new information that confirms that. It's interesting. I do a lot

:05:20.:05:25.

of data reporting and I'm always very interested in these things,

:05:26.:05:29.

these are conversations I have had with the NHS to get data that is

:05:30.:05:33.

available in other countries that could help identify the areas where

:05:34.:05:38.

there are inefficiencies. May be over diagnosing certain drugs here

:05:39.:05:44.

compare to other countries, the NHS doesn't want to release that

:05:45.:05:48.

information and it could help. You don't need a placebo, do you? I

:05:49.:05:53.

don't have a doctor, I never go! What is interesting is the concept

:05:54.:05:57.

that patients think what might happen if nothing was done. The idea

:05:58.:06:02.

of going to the doctor and saying I feel ill and the doctor potentially

:06:03.:06:07.

could say there's nothing I can do for you. There's the idea that

:06:08.:06:12.

something needs to happen and something needs to be done when

:06:13.:06:17.

actually it doesn't necessarily. Too many blood tests. You can use tap

:06:18.:06:22.

water to wash cuts rather than saline solution. It's interesting

:06:23.:06:28.

how that would work if people went and they said there's nothing we can

:06:29.:06:33.

do for you. The risk of mistreatment isn't played up by doctors, maybe

:06:34.:06:38.

they should play that up more. Inside the Times, we are doing well

:06:39.:06:48.

out of this tonight, P2. -- page two. Offering Nicola Sturgeon direct

:06:49.:06:55.

access to Number 10. If I was Nicola Sturgeon I would keep on going down

:06:56.:06:59.

that line and saying I want nothing to do with you. I hang my head!

:07:00.:07:04.

That's what I would do. It is all sorts of fiddle Naga link, a bit of

:07:05.:07:12.

access to this, a bit of that, single market maybe. Is that a word,

:07:13.:07:22.

naggling? Yes, it is when you do a bit of Wheeler dealing in the equine

:07:23.:07:27.

market. A bit of this, a bit of that, they will work it out, but it

:07:28.:07:33.

doesn't really mean anything. Naggling, I will write that down. I

:07:34.:07:38.

would say to her, I've had enough of all of this. She's not going to turn

:07:39.:07:43.

down the chance to talk to her and put the case for Scotland. The case

:07:44.:07:47.

she has is an interesting one, the idea would be that Scotland has a

:07:48.:07:54.

flexible Brexit. A Flexit? Very good. Another made up word. That

:07:55.:08:00.

would be very unusual and it is without precedent and it would be

:08:01.:08:03.

hard to see how that would work exactly. But what's interesting, if

:08:04.:08:07.

she does get into the room and she hears these plans or negotiating,

:08:08.:08:11.

the government says they aren't saying what the strategy is -- for

:08:12.:08:16.

negotiating. They aren't going to reveal the recipe for the secret

:08:17.:08:20.

sauce. She might get inside and say this source doesn't taste very good

:08:21.:08:24.

but she might leave the room and tell people. She might say that the

:08:25.:08:30.

source doesn't exist. Indeed. It's part of increasing scrutiny over the

:08:31.:08:34.

government the Cotia can position because she could walk out and say

:08:35.:08:41.

there's no strategy -- negotiation. The future of the union could rest

:08:42.:08:46.

upon it? Absolutely, what are we going to do? It is worrying. It is

:08:47.:08:53.

scarifying. You do that to your lawn. Not my lawn, never mind. Mine

:08:54.:09:03.

never gets scarifyied, it never gets any attention. To the Mirror, this

:09:04.:09:09.

reporting from Chris Hughes from the frontline in Mosul. It's been on the

:09:10.:09:14.

front page and many pages inside have given over to it. Hit the Mad

:09:15.:09:20.

Max car now, a suicide bomber heading for them, giving you an idea

:09:21.:09:24.

what it is taking to out these IS militants from the city. Chris

:09:25.:09:30.

Hughes has had some hairy moments and we see other reporting from

:09:31.:09:34.

Anthony Loyd and others today in the Times. Some real underground

:09:35.:09:39.

reporting. Clearly journalists have been invited to ride along with some

:09:40.:09:44.

of the Peshmerga forces and the central government forces. It's a

:09:45.:09:49.

very big operation. As I said, some near misses from some of the

:09:50.:09:53.

correspondence here. The fighting seems to be going in favour of the

:09:54.:10:00.

Western backed government forces. -- correspondents. They have approached

:10:01.:10:06.

the outlying towns of Mosul but not Mosul itself. Looks like there is

:10:07.:10:09.

stern operation waiting for them in the city. The argument was in the

:10:10.:10:14.

beginning when ISS got such a foothold in parts of Iraq that there

:10:15.:10:19.

was a vacuum because the political situation was such a mess that they

:10:20.:10:23.

could make those inroads -- ISIS. This has to be a permanent solution,

:10:24.:10:28.

hasn't it? You wonder if the situation in Iraq is good enough to

:10:29.:10:33.

keep them at bay. It's very difficult to know where this is

:10:34.:10:37.

going to end up. Obviously you've got the Peshmerga there and there

:10:38.:10:42.

must be something given as it were to the Kurds. Yes. That's

:10:43.:10:48.

potentially a very difficult situation. This is amazing what

:10:49.:10:55.

Chris Hughes has been doing. That -year-old war reporting is something

:10:56.:10:59.

we don't see very much now. These reports and photographs are amazing.

:11:00.:11:06.

It really brings to light how difficult and horrible and how nasty

:11:07.:11:11.

what's going on there is, when you are so far removed it is difficult

:11:12.:11:15.

to get a feeling for it but that's what he does, he absolutely brings

:11:16.:11:19.

to you what is going on there. It is deeply horrible. >>

:11:20.:11:24.

I hope the Iraqi forces are equally as open, in Falluja afterwards we

:11:25.:11:31.

saw horrible tragedies and it was difficult to report on the ground

:11:32.:11:37.

and the outcome was a high degree of risk for the journalists involved

:11:38.:11:42.

for doing that. Hopefully their willingness to show the battlefield

:11:43.:11:46.

to the reporters continues. Back to the Times, almost a full house, page

:11:47.:11:53.

28, page 29, Baghdad bans alcohol sales to appease extremists. Why are

:11:54.:12:00.

you looking at me? You spotted it! It did catch my eye and not just

:12:01.:12:04.

because of my nationality. No Guinness? Yes! I was able to get a

:12:05.:12:11.

drink when I was in Iraq some years ago. Looks like it won't happen

:12:12.:12:15.

again. There is a serious side to this. Yes, it is a minority and this

:12:16.:12:22.

is why it caught my eye. Part of the problems, as you alluded to earlier,

:12:23.:12:27.

has been blamed on Nouri al-Maliki, the previously the ship was

:12:28.:12:31.

divisive, is this new government more inclusive? It was certainly

:12:32.:12:37.

dominated by Shias -- previously the ship. So the question is this

:12:38.:12:42.

another sign the government won't be as inclusive as it needs to be to

:12:43.:12:47.

bring the country together -- previous leadership. That said, we

:12:48.:12:51.

have run out of time. Look how disappointed they are! Naggling, we

:12:52.:13:00.

will look it up to make sure it is in the thesaurus and dictionary. Tom

:13:01.:13:04.

and Lucy, thanks for coming and spending your Sunday evening with

:13:05.:13:05.

us. Next, The Film Review.
