Chian Broadbent and Charlotte Rampling star in this film. We will

:00:00.:00:00.

have our thoughts coming up in the Film cut Mac review. -- Review.

:00:00.:00:15.

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

:00:16.:00:18.

With me are Nigel Nelson, political editor of the Sunday Mirror

:00:19.:00:26.

and the Sunday People, and the political commentator

:00:27.:00:28.

Tomorrow's front pages, starting with

:00:29.:00:35.

The Mail on Sunday leads with the rising tensions around

:00:36.:00:38.

North Korea and their threat to wipe out the United States armada.

:00:39.:00:46.

The Sunday Times, also leading on North Korea, says President Trump

:00:47.:00:49.

is prepared to strike Korean nuclear sites.

:00:50.:00:54.

The Sunday Telegraph goes with the potential threat to America

:00:55.:00:56.

It says that North Korea possesses the capability to strike

:00:57.:01:00.

The Express calls it the Deadliest Stand-off.

:01:01.:01:02.

And the Observer leads on an education story,

:01:03.:01:05.

saying that free schools will benefit wealthier regions.

:01:06.:01:21.

Good evening to you both. Our final look at the papers. We are starting

:01:22.:01:32.

off at the mail. North Korea. Looking at all the papers, it seems

:01:33.:01:37.

to be and not a very happy Easter kind of message. The mail has done a

:01:38.:01:43.

good analysis of the weaponry we saw being rolled out today in North

:01:44.:01:55.

Korea. They are talking about such things as the Japanese are thinking

:01:56.:01:59.

of drawing up plans to take 57 thousands of their nationals out of

:02:00.:02:04.

South Korea. If they are doing that than they are obviously taking that

:02:05.:02:08.

seriously. The interesting bit that they do mention is the

:02:09.:02:14.

intercontinental ballistic missile. The ones that can go allegedly 7000

:02:15.:02:18.

miles and hit the West coast of America. One of the points they are

:02:19.:02:23.

making is that even if these things exist. If you remember, they were

:02:24.:02:27.

just in case things, that may be all there is to it. The one thing we do

:02:28.:02:35.

know is that they are yet to be flight tested. That seems to be the

:02:36.:02:39.

big problem they have. They may have the warheads and have the nuclear

:02:40.:02:43.

stuff to put on them will stop however, they are not quite so sure

:02:44.:02:49.

about the delivery system. That obviously questions how much this is

:02:50.:02:55.

going to be possible. That's how tensions drop rather than rise

:02:56.:03:02.

because Arsenal might not know where it's going. When you look at the

:03:03.:03:08.

fact the US have moved so close, they have moved into the Korean

:03:09.:03:13.

peninsula, I think this is what has made people jittery. What you have

:03:14.:03:19.

to remember is that you have two men who are perhaps not of their equable

:03:20.:03:28.

temperament. Wouldn't say they are both completely bonkers but I

:03:29.:03:33.

wouldn't want to be stuck with them in a lift, would you? In North

:03:34.:03:43.

Korea, he can do whatever he likes. Interestingly, Donald Trump has been

:03:44.:03:47.

very quiet on Twitter and has dispatched Mike Pence to South

:03:48.:03:55.

Korea. But it does, as you say, it is built... And the fact you have

:03:56.:04:01.

the American armada heading towards the Korean peninsula. You have is,,

:04:02.:04:06.

hauled missiles, you have quite a lot of stuff that means this is that

:04:07.:04:15.

crisis that is very choreographed. You are saying it choreographed

:04:16.:04:19.

display in North Korea that you also have the choreography going on

:04:20.:04:22.

outside in the waters and the oceans. The world is watching and

:04:23.:04:31.

waiting. The terrible fear is that if this North Korea really sticking

:04:32.:04:37.

a stick through the bars of Donald Trump's cage to try and force him to

:04:38.:04:42.

do something? In actual fact, this parade turns out to be empty

:04:43.:04:47.

canisters of nothing. He mentioned Donald Trump on Twitter -- you

:04:48.:04:53.

mentioned. His last tweet which is pointing towards what's going on in

:04:54.:04:57.

North Korea. "I Have great confidence that China will probably

:04:58.:05:01.

deal with North Korea. If they are unable to do so, the US, with its

:05:02.:05:08.

allies, will. You as a." Maybe it's not so much North Korea sticking to

:05:09.:05:13.

stick at the US that maybe the US prodding China. -- USA. Of course

:05:14.:05:20.

they do. He was meeting with the Chinese leader last week but you

:05:21.:05:24.

also have the problem where China sits on the UN and the problem when

:05:25.:05:28.

China sits in relation to Syria which of course is of huge

:05:29.:05:32.

importance to the world that is also of huge importance in American

:05:33.:05:36.

diplomatic relations and a lot of this. We are talking about weapons.

:05:37.:05:41.

We are talking about force. But actually, nine times out of ten,

:05:42.:05:47.

these things are resolved somehow or other or dealt with through

:05:48.:05:52.

diplomatic channels. You have pretty untested and inexperienced foreign

:05:53.:05:57.

affairs team in Rex Tillerson, the Secretary of State, who is a

:05:58.:06:01.

businessman. He is good at doing deals but whether he can do a deal

:06:02.:06:05.

with China over something like this. Who knows? I suppose the times are

:06:06.:06:09.

going with these pre-emptive strikes. --I suppose the Times. The

:06:10.:06:21.

Americans no sweat these missiles are being constructed and kept. They

:06:22.:06:25.

want to knock them all out. That is the basic message coming through.

:06:26.:06:30.

Interestingly, the Times also makes the point that you have just made.

:06:31.:06:34.

This may be a just a bit of rhetoric to try and get the Chinese on side.

:06:35.:06:42.

The Chinese are pivotal to all this. What you need to do is get them to

:06:43.:06:51.

put the pressure on chairman to stand down. We just need to see if

:06:52.:06:57.

they can do that. The other thing the Times reports, going back the

:06:58.:07:02.

point about tweets, the chief of staff of the US air force general

:07:03.:07:13.

David Goldstone, tweeted a picture of American War plays and the words

:07:14.:07:19.

"Fights on". It doesn't seem to me like somebody waiting for a

:07:20.:07:23.

diplomatic solution. It's not particularly helpful. The problem

:07:24.:07:27.

may have, if Kim carries out the test, it will be a six. Has been

:07:28.:07:32.

five where we made all sorts of threats, we tried sanctions, UN

:07:33.:07:37.

condemnation, none of it works. What do you do next? I understand that

:07:38.:07:41.

Trump team to temperament he has, he wants to actually do something the

:07:42.:07:46.

idea of an actual pre-emptive strike, hitting first, seems to me

:07:47.:07:51.

inconceivable. Is interesting, isn't it, that we are having international

:07:52.:07:55.

diplomacy and headlines with war in them and it's all been taken mostly

:07:56.:08:01.

by Twitter. That's why it's shocking. That's the new world we're

:08:02.:08:07.

living in. Let's move on to the Sunday Telegraph and again, its

:08:08.:08:24.

career. -- Korea. The only reason America was interested in this now

:08:25.:08:31.

is because it can hit said Shaw. Mr Trump might not be wanting to be

:08:32.:08:36.

involved in foreign affairs any more. He seems to have changed his

:08:37.:08:43.

tune in the last week. He has changed his tune completely. I don't

:08:44.:08:47.

know how many days we have had now off -- off of Trump. The things he

:08:48.:09:02.

had bombed so far, I never thought I would be in agreement of that I

:09:03.:09:06.

have. The one thing he has been making if there are red lines. When

:09:07.:09:10.

you cross the red line like using chemical weapons in Syria, there

:09:11.:09:16.

will be a price to be paid. He then hit Syria with 59 cruise missiles.

:09:17.:09:22.

Isis move into Afghanistan and try and destabilise the country hugely

:09:23.:09:26.

and again, price to be paid. They drop a big Allmond them. None of

:09:27.:09:31.

these things seem to be about being at the moment. I'm not sure you can

:09:32.:09:35.

play the same trick the third time with Korea, though. Today they

:09:36.:09:39.

attacked Korea, they have lawful lot more to hit back with. A lot of

:09:40.:09:44.

people are saying that North Korea wants some respect. This is why they

:09:45.:09:49.

are carrying all this out and they want... Perhaps we should have

:09:50.:09:56.

stopped with taking the Mickey out of Cymmer's a cut. This poll is very

:09:57.:10:07.

interesting. -- Kim Jong-un's. Their greatest leading government since

:10:08.:10:12.

1983. This is the Independent. A poll conducted for the Independent

:10:13.:10:21.

which gives the Tories a percentage over Labour. The greatest leap since

:10:22.:10:26.

1983. The highest lead of any party since May 2009, in fact. What is

:10:27.:10:32.

really interesting and right at the bottom of this article, the last

:10:33.:10:36.

paragraph, the poll also discovered as significant support for a new

:10:37.:10:41.

political party in Britain. 41% of British adults agree there is a

:10:42.:10:46.

space for a centre party. That will give a lot of food for thought to

:10:47.:10:51.

the people in the Labour Party. They are probably looking into going into

:10:52.:10:57.

oblivion with Jeremy Corbyn if this is to be believed and also the Lib

:10:58.:11:05.

Dems. Myself and Nigel remembered that SLP and the SNP that went

:11:06.:11:12.

before it. That went to be a busted flush. Charly Williams is still a

:11:13.:11:17.

round, actually, I think you'll find. But the party isn't. At its an

:11:18.:11:24.

important point. I think it's really important. What this shows is that

:11:25.:11:29.

one of the other things is that the Conservatives are probably going to

:11:30.:11:34.

take a lot of votes from the UKIP. They will be the real losers in

:11:35.:11:39.

this. Lim what they have here is that three in ten of people who

:11:40.:11:43.

voted for UKIP it the 2015 election are now saying, according to this

:11:44.:11:47.

poll, that they would vote for the Tories. There has been talk between

:11:48.:11:52.

the Tories and some Labour MPs about the formation of another party and

:11:53.:11:56.

that will probably be Labour joining with the Lib Dems and make a third

:11:57.:12:02.

centre-left party. The problem is that I think the Labour Party is to

:12:03.:12:07.

tribal. When it comes to it, Labour MPs are not going to jump ship. That

:12:08.:12:12.

is one of the problems they have had with Jeremy Corbyn. Even those who

:12:13.:12:15.

most oppose him, the last thing they want to do is leave the Labour

:12:16.:12:19.

Party. It's just the nature of it. The idea of a third party coming

:12:20.:12:23.

from nothing, I don't think it's possible. Who would be an

:12:24.:12:31.

alternative to Mr Corbyn within Labour? Any names spring to mind?

:12:32.:12:37.

No, they will not challenge now. They will not be any challenge until

:12:38.:12:42.

2018. If you are putting money on it, ... Is it an egg hunt or in

:12:43.:12:56.

Easter egg hunt later today? This is Theresa May, Prime Minister and

:12:57.:13:05.

Vika's daughter... And an Easter Rex Hunt. -- vicar. Tony Blair said "We

:13:06.:13:24.

don't do God" unfortunately, he did do it. She has come out and said it

:13:25.:13:28.

is a robust defence of the right of questions to speak about their fate

:13:29.:13:31.

following controversy about the Easter Rex Hunt, as you mentioned.

:13:32.:13:40.

-- faith -- Easter egg hunt. People will stand up for those who openly

:13:41.:13:46.

support their fate. It is a personal video message. She is putting her

:13:47.:13:50.

money where her mouth is. Issue was prepared to carry this out,

:13:51.:13:55.

tremendous. The whole thing is that Joe Joyce complains that they don't

:13:56.:13:58.

get involved in debate or whatever. -- is she was prepared. It is

:13:59.:14:05.

lagging 25 years behind the people they seek serve. Let's stick to the

:14:06.:14:10.

Church theme and turn to the Sunday Telegraph. Ready to put those

:14:11.:14:18.

archbishops? How could you forget that? This was

:14:19.:14:31.

a builder 's accident that turned into a fantastic discovery. They

:14:32.:14:34.

were doing some work. They've been doing big river management for a

:14:35.:14:40.

museum. They went through a wrong bet they found what seemed to be a

:14:41.:14:43.

hidden chamber. -- big refurbishment. This is the ultimate

:14:44.:14:53.

selfy stick. They could turn a mobile phone into a whole, and

:14:54.:14:58.

discovered a hidden stairway, and in the stairway... There were 30 lead

:14:59.:15:12.

coffins. And these are quite a lot of Archbishops of Canterbury, dating

:15:13.:15:15.

back to the 17th century. How could you misplace your archbishops? Thank

:15:16.:15:21.

you for that. That is such a mystery.
