We'll be taking a look at tomorrow mornings papers in a moment,

:00:10.:00:15.

Great Ormond Street Hospital contacts the police

:00:16.:00:19.

after staff received death threats and online abuse

:00:20.:00:21.

in relation to the Charlie Gard case.

:00:22.:00:25.

As Donald Trump commissions a new warship,

:00:26.:00:27.

And Tom Daley has claimed his first individual world diving title

:00:47.:00:49.

He won gold in the 10 metre platform final in Budapest.

:00:50.:01:08.

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

:01:09.:01:12.

columnist with the London Evening Standard,

:01:13.:01:16.

and Martin Lipton, Head of Sport at the Sun.

:01:17.:01:21.

Tomorrow's front pages, starting with The Observer

:01:22.:01:24.

which leads with claims that the Brexit Secretary,

:01:25.:01:26.

David Davis, is the preferred choice among Tory members

:01:27.:01:29.

to replace Prime Minister Theresa May.

:01:30.:01:33.

The Sunday Express features a family photograph

:01:34.:01:35.

of Prince Harry and his mother, Diana the Princess of Wales,

:01:36.:01:38.

with the headline Our Last Words With Mummy.

:01:39.:01:41.

along with reports that more than forty female BBC presenters

:01:42.:01:46.

have signed an open letter to the director-general

:01:47.:01:48.

The Sunday Times says men and women will be able to change their gender

:01:49.:01:55.

legally without a doctor's diagnosis under government plans.

:01:56.:01:59.

While the Star leads with Princes Harry and William's

:02:00.:02:01.

last conversation with their mum before she died.

:02:02.:02:05.

The royal story also dominates the front of the Mail on Sunday.

:02:06.:02:08.

Ahead of the 20th anniversary of her death,

:02:09.:02:11.

Princes Harry and William pay tribute to their mum,

:02:12.:02:14.

The front of the Sunday Telegraph. Tory faithful urge Theresa May to

:02:15.:02:36.

leave number ten by Christmas. The grass root saying, unsurprisingly,

:02:37.:02:43.

after the quite unsuccessful general election and they think the clock is

:02:44.:02:49.

ticking down and calling for her to go, obviously. The Telegraph

:02:50.:02:58.

mentions here a report... A presentation, sorry, by a senior

:02:59.:03:04.

representative of Tory volunteers from around 200 party groups and the

:03:05.:03:12.

report criticises every aspect of the campaign, including the

:03:13.:03:24.

manifesto disaster and making it a choice of two leaders, that that was

:03:25.:03:30.

a terrible mistake. It is only a matter of time, they say. When they

:03:31.:03:39.

talk about leading voices among activists at the grassroots and you

:03:40.:03:44.

wonder how many. Also, it is one thing to decide to cut off the head

:03:45.:03:49.

of the party then finding somebody else's head to stick on the tattered

:03:50.:03:56.

body. I think you might be leading us to the front of the Observer. It

:03:57.:04:02.

is understandable, the Tory party has to be led by a Brexiteer. At

:04:03.:04:15.

least Davies, Fox Adam Johnson other three most prominent. Michael Gove

:04:16.:04:22.

is gone so you're with those of three. But this massive clamour for

:04:23.:04:35.

David Davis is 20% of 1000 Tory members so not exactly a huge

:04:36.:04:41.

endorsement of any of them. None of the above city be the favourite

:04:42.:04:51.

option. Davis was a victim himself in 2005 when he stood against David

:04:52.:04:56.

Cameron to replace Michael Howerd who had resigned and David Davis was

:04:57.:05:02.

supposed to walk it and then you had these young MP with a fresh voice,

:05:03.:05:10.

and a fresher face... Theresa May came out because of the failings of

:05:11.:05:19.

others. I think as well it reflects the fact they do not have a great

:05:20.:05:25.

talent. They have I think a lot of good MPs on the backbenches but they

:05:26.:05:29.

do not have great people coming up through the... Hence the surprise

:05:30.:05:36.

choice for candidate. It might be skipping a generation. Dominic may

:05:37.:05:44.

be seen as the standardbearer for the young... Jessye Norman should

:05:45.:05:50.

have been around much more than he has been but has not been much

:05:51.:05:56.

respect that. Jeremy Corbyn also features on the front of the

:05:57.:06:04.

absorber. The secret back up. This is wonderful. Most of the Labour

:06:05.:06:08.

Party spent the last ten years blaming Tony Blair for everything

:06:09.:06:13.

and they now should be faithful to keeping them in Parliament. This is

:06:14.:06:20.

Hilary Armstrong who says there was a move within the North CLP to

:06:21.:06:28.

deselect Corbyn because he was a persistent rebel and voted against

:06:29.:06:32.

government time and time again, the very thing which he now says it is

:06:33.:06:40.

unacceptable from his MPs. This is part of a push back by the

:06:41.:06:45.

centre-right of the Labour Party. You have Tom Watson, the suggestion

:06:46.:06:52.

of mandatory selection of MPs and it is a reminder that it is supposed to

:06:53.:06:57.

be a broad church here and according to this Tony Blair was the one to

:06:58.:07:03.

say when people were saying to get rid of Jeremy Corbyn, he said hang

:07:04.:07:09.

on, we need to make sure there is this broad church. There is a bit of

:07:10.:07:15.

political irony. Some people would have been very glad he had, looking

:07:16.:07:22.

back with hindsight, if only we got rid of Jeremy Corbyn and then.

:07:23.:07:26.

Things have changed somewhat in the last two months. Choosing your sex.

:07:27.:07:36.

In the Sunday Times, Justine Greening, deals with equality

:07:37.:07:45.

matters. She has talked about a step forward in terms of equality in this

:07:46.:07:51.

country. Women's rights, the legalisation of same-sex marriage

:07:52.:07:54.

and now she says that has to come for transgender people and that is

:07:55.:08:01.

about changing... At the moment, if you want to change the sex on your

:08:02.:08:10.

birth certificate, that has to go through medical... Through a medical

:08:11.:08:14.

system and this is saying people should be entitled to do that

:08:15.:08:23.

legally without a Doctor's diagnosis, also an interesting issue

:08:24.:08:28.

about allowing gay men to give larger. Quite a lot there. This is

:08:29.:08:39.

the bit that is quite controversial, I suspect, because people are going

:08:40.:08:46.

to say, well, you can see what they are trying to do here and it might

:08:47.:08:51.

sound brilliant except there are spaces and there are racist concerns

:08:52.:08:57.

because they are there to protect women and we were talking earlier

:08:58.:09:05.

about prisons, hospital wards, crisis centres... Talk of legal

:09:06.:09:11.

cases and some people are unhappy about it. If people are concerned...

:09:12.:09:21.

The interesting thing is rather than two years living as a woman when you

:09:22.:09:29.

were born a man, they intend to leave any of you are quite gender,

:09:30.:09:35.

is that tree declaration is what you need. People may be concerned

:09:36.:09:40.

because there would be doubts about the genuine commitment of the change

:09:41.:09:44.

and that is where the issue of rivers the... Sport also is a place

:09:45.:09:55.

that this... In Iran there is an issue that most of the people who

:09:56.:10:02.

make the women's football teams are trans- and they did not sit

:10:03.:10:06.

necessarily to be transitioning and that is another place that it will

:10:07.:10:12.

come up and be controversial. The missing women demand instant pay

:10:13.:10:17.

rise. This is unsurprising, really. We all saw the numbers. Didn't see

:10:18.:10:26.

your number... I didn't make that. I was curious of admission. One to

:10:27.:10:34.

absolutely brilliant broadcaster 's... Who are outstanding and some

:10:35.:10:43.

of them have written a letter to Tony Hall, the director general,.

:10:44.:10:55.

Many names included, basically every start name... Some very significant

:10:56.:11:03.

names. And they have every right to be fuming. The principal statement

:11:04.:11:07.

is committing the closing that gap which is already narrow in the BBC

:11:08.:11:15.

that other places, and closing it by 2020. I agree with the women here

:11:16.:11:20.

but I would add that the BBC gets more scrutiny in these issues and

:11:21.:11:27.

other organisations. We need to close the gap everywhere. One of the

:11:28.:11:31.

great things these women have called for is that it is not just asked,

:11:32.:11:37.

the talent, it should be everyone across the board. And that is a

:11:38.:11:41.

really important. The Sunday express, exclusive on page two, the

:11:42.:11:47.

NHS and its future and talks of radical and rapid spending. It is a

:11:48.:11:56.

rather grim. The BMA has warned that the government is drawing up secret

:11:57.:12:04.

plans for radical spending cuts and this is ?250 million. Apocalyptic

:12:05.:12:11.

sort of warning. This really is at the end of the NHS. It would give up

:12:12.:12:17.

the coverage from cradle to grave and that is really what the NHS

:12:18.:12:23.

stands for. You have to think, if you talk to any NHS staff, nurse, De

:12:24.:12:33.

is, ambulance workers, it really is quite desperate and they are really

:12:34.:12:39.

stressed. Apocalyptic, as you say. We will finish with the Observer,

:12:40.:12:47.

back to it, a photograph of Chris Froome. Yes, indeed. He will be

:12:48.:13:01.

parading down the shop the -- down Paris, despite not winning a single

:13:02.:13:06.

stage this year which is quite unusual. The convention that I like

:13:07.:13:11.

is that you do not attack the leader on the final day. It is an

:13:12.:13:18.

incredible story. The sheer relentlessness, the demands put on

:13:19.:13:23.

these riders to go down and up those mountains, it is truly remarkable.

:13:24.:13:32.

The bravery they have to show. Ludicrous 70 kilometres an hour

:13:33.:13:38.

coming down those steep slopes is remarkable. An astonishing

:13:39.:13:44.

achievement. He is a fantastic, fantastic sportsman and he will

:13:45.:13:49.

deserve is every accolade. I can't say I will be watching but it is a

:13:50.:13:54.

beautiful front page. He was not wearing his special suit because he

:13:55.:14:00.

was not allowed to wear but he will be in yellow tomorrow. Thank you

:14:01.:14:03.

very much indeed. My guest today is one of the world's

:14:04.:14:16.

most popular crime writers,
