Are very personal tale of love in the romantic comedy The Big Six.

:00:00.:00:00.

Find out what James King mate of this and the other releases this

:00:00.:00:00.

week in The Film Review. Hello and welcome to our look ahead

:00:00.:00:12.

to what the the papers will be With me are Nigel Nelson, Political

:00:13.:00:16.

Editor of the Sunday Mirror, and political commentator Jo

:00:17.:00:19.

Phillips. Al polite tourists reviewers, so

:00:20.:00:33.

Twitter tells us! You may disagree. I left my knuckle duster that home.

:00:34.:00:35.

To be polished! Let's take a look at

:00:36.:00:37.

tomorrow's front pages. The Observer leads with Donald

:00:38.:00:47.

Trump's decision to sack his chief of staff.

:00:48.:00:48.

The Telegraph leads with an ally of Boris Johnson attacking

:00:49.:00:50.

The Sunday Times has a report on the lives of teenage British

:00:51.:00:54.

girls who run away to join so-called Islamic State.

:00:55.:00:57.

The Mail says that Princess Diana's brother has called on Channel 4 not

:00:58.:01:00.

to broadcast her video diaries, which are due to air next week.

:01:01.:01:02.

The Express also focuses on Princess Diana, claiming

:01:03.:01:04.

the Princess asked the Queen for help about her marriage.

:01:05.:01:13.

That story also makes the Daily Star's FrontPage.

:01:14.:01:19.

That's where we'll begin as reported in the Mail on Sunday, don't show

:01:20.:01:28.

Diana Love tapes on TV pleads the earl, asking more demanding that

:01:29.:01:32.

Channel 4 acts what are called bombshell videos. Why are they so

:01:33.:01:36.

sensitive? Diana in fact gave them to a voice coach and the idea was

:01:37.:01:42.

these were never meant to appear. They seem to go through a peculiar

:01:43.:01:45.

route after that where they end up in a number of places, the BBC

:01:46.:01:51.

seemed to get the. And decided not to broadcast. And decided it would

:01:52.:01:59.

not upset the Royal family by broadcasting them. They then go

:02:00.:02:01.

through a circuitous route and end up with Channel 4, who plan to come

:02:02.:02:08.

out with Diana in her own words next Sunday, that's the idea, and what

:02:09.:02:11.

they say is she apparently was terribly candid with her voice

:02:12.:02:17.

coach, where although this wasn't meant to be broadcast, she did talk

:02:18.:02:21.

about Prince Charles, talked about Camilla being his mistress at the

:02:22.:02:26.

time, talks about a lot of private matters. Quite clearly Earl Spencer

:02:27.:02:38.

would be hugely upset for these to be made public, and of course so

:02:39.:02:40.

would William and Harry. That doesn't mean they shouldn't be made

:02:41.:02:43.

public. Should they, Jo? I would say... We know there is nothing new

:02:44.:02:50.

in the clips here that we don't already know, she was desperately

:02:51.:02:54.

unhappy, three of them in the marriage. There is an insinuation

:02:55.:03:00.

that this boy coach session was before she did the explosive

:03:01.:03:04.

Panorama interview, but as far as we can tell this was a private session

:03:05.:03:09.

with a voice coach. Therefore it is private and like Nigel Lamb curious

:03:10.:03:13.

to know how they ended up at Channel 4 if the BBC bought them, but I have

:03:14.:03:18.

read here but apparently they were broadcast on the American network

:03:19.:03:25.

NBC in 2004 and described them as a ghoulish striptease and that the

:03:26.:03:28.

people involved were no better than grave-robbers. But there is an odd

:03:29.:03:39.

question about who owns them. You said she gave them to him, you don't

:03:40.:03:42.

know that. I don't. Not that I'm casting aspersions! I don't know

:03:43.:03:51.

that but he got them. The issue, really, is going to be a real battle

:03:52.:03:58.

during the week. I don't think it's public interest? Isn't it? I think

:03:59.:04:06.

at a certain level your private life is always public interest. Private

:04:07.:04:13.

citizen and public person don't have the same levels of privacy. Would

:04:14.:04:16.

you broadcast interviews with a doctor or therapist? I wouldn't do

:04:17.:04:24.

that? Why? Because medical information has to be confidential.

:04:25.:04:28.

I wouldn't broadcast staff overheard where she was talking to a

:04:29.:04:32.

pre-cyber, for instance. Something like this is not privileged the same

:04:33.:04:37.

way. But she and he would assume it to be a private session. We don't

:04:38.:04:43.

know what he thought. He's bought... She didn't want to broadcast at the

:04:44.:04:48.

time. It seems an odd thing to talk about her private life in the way

:04:49.:04:54.

she did. Except when she was doing it for the Panorama interview. She

:04:55.:05:04.

was doing it with a voice coach, but I do think this is part of history.

:05:05.:05:07.

She was the person we have been hugely interested in, and overall, I

:05:08.:05:10.

think there is a genuine public interest for showing what she was

:05:11.:05:14.

like. We had a programme during the week where William and Harry, a

:05:15.:05:19.

fantastic programme, talking about their mum, and what a fantastic

:05:20.:05:23.

person she was. I do think we ought to see a more rounded, picture,

:05:24.:05:28.

though, and so both sides. We know this, there is nothing new in this.

:05:29.:05:32.

We don't know until we see the tapes. And also given that Princes

:05:33.:05:44.

William and Harry have done so much to raise awareness of mental health

:05:45.:05:46.

issues. They have done a great job. She was clearly in a great state of

:05:47.:05:49.

mental trauma. You can't just present one side of Diana, the

:05:50.:05:54.

mother in their case, and in a sense a sanitised version of her. Once you

:05:55.:05:58.

put that out and say that is public interest, surely the dark side of

:05:59.:06:05.

Diana is public interest as well. We will have to disagree on that! That,

:06:06.:06:12.

folks, is how you disagree! LAUGHTER . The Sunday Telegraph, policy ally

:06:13.:06:18.

attacks Hammond Brexit plan, transition must be no more than two

:06:19.:06:23.

years says Foreign Secretary's economic guru. Who worked with Boris

:06:24.:06:28.

when he was Mayor of London, and it is interesting if you are interested

:06:29.:06:33.

in these things, which of course we are fascinated by, various misses me

on her walking holiday, gone away to lie down in a darkened room. --

:06:39.:06:45.

there is misses me on holiday. Chancellor appearing to speak some

:06:46.:06:49.

sense to a lot of quarters about a slower transition phase so we don't

:06:50.:06:54.

have the cliff edge Brexit, and now we have not Boris, he is maintaining

:06:55.:07:01.

his tight lipped nature, but Mr Lyons, one assumes speaking with his

:07:02.:07:08.

boss's blessing. We can't assume that! I think in politics you can,

:07:09.:07:15.

actually. He is basically saying this is ridiculous, what Philip

:07:16.:07:20.

Hammond says is crazy, and the warnings of the cliff edge are

:07:21.:07:24.

nonsense and he is comparing it to warnings about the millennium bug

:07:25.:07:29.

that would bring all our computers into disrepair. Is this code for, we

:07:30.:07:33.

are worried that if it takes that long Brexit will crash and burn?

:07:34.:07:44.

Partly I am sure that is true. First of all I am not convinced Boris

:07:45.:07:47.

thinks these things. He has been the other side of the world this week

:07:48.:07:49.

with wonderful pictures of shaking hands with robots in Japan and so on

:07:50.:07:52.

and reports have come back which seem contradictory, this is not

:07:53.:07:56.

unusual with Boris, but I don't quite know what he thinks and which

:07:57.:08:02.

is why it would go too far to say that Mr Lyons speaks on his behalf.

:08:03.:08:07.

What seems to be happening this week is that Philip Hammond is getting

:08:08.:08:11.

his way, and it just feels like plain common sense. We will not get

:08:12.:08:17.

this complex negotiation completed by March 29 2019, so transition

:08:18.:08:24.

period is going to happen. Thank you. LAUGHTER. So polite, we could

:08:25.:08:30.

do Songs of Praise, couldn't we? Where is the tea set an extant?! We

:08:31.:08:40.

are going back to the 50s! After you, may I say! The Sunday Times,

:08:41.:08:49.

life of teenage girls in Isis Britain, and stripped passports for

:08:50.:08:54.

jihadists, let's deal with the passports first, this is because of

:08:55.:08:57.

concerns that the so-called caliphate is imploding. Exactly. We

:08:58.:09:04.

now know the 150 so-called jihadists have been stripped of their

:09:05.:09:08.

passports. Some of this has been known but not publicised, but I

:09:09.:09:13.

think because there is a concern that nothing is happening, so these

:09:14.:09:18.

are people who have gone, they are banned from returning to Britain so

:09:19.:09:22.

in effect are stateless without British citizenship. Where they go

:09:23.:09:27.

and what happens afterwards remains to be seen. But at the same time the

:09:28.:09:30.

Home Office I think is under pressure because last week it

:09:31.:09:34.

confirmed only six terrorist suspects in Britain are subject to

:09:35.:09:39.

the terrorist prevention measures, so I think there is genuine public

:09:40.:09:44.

concern that on the one hand we hear the police and security services

:09:45.:09:49.

thwarting a certain number of attacks or incidents, but then you

:09:50.:09:53.

say, are you using these powers? They are trying to get the word out.

:09:54.:09:58.

They are not stateless, to humbly disagree with you. That would be

:09:59.:10:03.

illegal. They had dual nationals so they have somewhere to go in the

:10:04.:10:07.

sense of their other nationality, but the more passports we take away,

:10:08.:10:13.

the better it is for this country they don't come back. At the moment

:10:14.:10:19.

we are talking about 23,000 jihadists in Britain, we don't want

:10:20.:10:24.

another 850 from Syria and Iraq. Another picture of a woman, a young

:10:25.:10:30.

woman who escaped from Raqqa, where she had been living with her husband

:10:31.:10:34.

was fighting for Isis and talks about meeting the other girls who

:10:35.:10:41.

left Britain to join Isis. Indeed. She met some Muslim schoolgirls who

:10:42.:10:45.

vanished from their homes to marry Isis fighters and claims to have the

:10:46.:10:51.

notorious white widow over there, and says this enclave in Raqqa is

:10:52.:10:54.

known as Little Britain because there are so many British brides who

:10:55.:10:59.

have gone there. A fascinating piece, maybe we'll will talk about

:11:00.:11:05.

it later. Acid laws in the Independent, government relaxes laws

:11:06.:11:08.

against advice and campaigners saying this may have made acid

:11:09.:11:13.

attacks more likely. It could well have done. It is perfectly true that

:11:14.:11:19.

they did make the regulations easier, and Amber Rudd is now trying

:11:20.:11:22.

to correct the balance to make regulations more difficult again, so

:11:23.:11:27.

broadly what was happening was a lot of acids were covered under the

:11:28.:11:31.

Poison Acts and you couldn't get them without either a licence, so if

:11:32.:11:37.

you wanted a strong acid, the shop needed a licence and you needed a

:11:38.:11:40.

licence to buy it, for something weaker there was a reporting

:11:41.:11:50.

contingent on it, which meant... Is this selling rather than buying? The

:11:51.:11:55.

retailer would have to tell the police if there was any suspicion

:11:56.:12:00.

about what was going on. Amber Rudd is tightening this up again. As a

:12:01.:12:06.

result of the acid attacks. Exactly, but as we have seen with weapons

:12:07.:12:12.

available on the Internet and often seized by the police, I imagine

:12:13.:12:16.

those doing these atrocious attacks will easily find another way to buy

:12:17.:12:24.

it. You could be right. But it is worth tightening it up in shops. And

:12:25.:12:31.

also it was hugely opposed by doctors and the authorities at the

:12:32.:12:36.

time. Back page of the Mail on Sunday, five years ago we were... I

:12:37.:12:43.

know! Having a lovely time in London 2012, but London's shocking drug

:12:44.:12:48.

date, how many people used banned substances. It is appalling, the

:12:49.:12:56.

Mail on Sunday reveals that out of 156 track and field finalists 87 had

:12:57.:13:01.

previously committed a doping violation or have since done so,

:13:02.:13:06.

about 13%. That is really appalling to all the people who were clean who

:13:07.:13:11.

competed through their own sweat and effort and hard work and perhaps who

:13:12.:13:16.

lost out on a medal to a cheat. There is no doubt that the doping

:13:17.:13:21.

scandal throughout sport is awful, and of course this comes just a week

:13:22.:13:29.

before we get the World Championships, the athletics World

:13:30.:13:32.

Championships here. And spectators as well, you wonder who you are

:13:33.:13:37.

watching, who is genuinely... That is right. As you both know I know

:13:38.:13:42.

nothing about sport, but however it seems to me we are coming to the

:13:43.:13:46.

point where everybody should be tested, and it seems you need a

:13:47.:13:50.

screening system to stop people doping before they start competing.

:13:51.:13:58.

Back to the Sunday Times, Let Them Eat Pheasants says beefy Botham. You

:13:59.:14:04.

know who this man is even though you can't stand sport. Don't you two

:14:05.:14:11.

gang up! Famous cricketer. Well done, you see? Famous for what?

:14:12.:14:19.

Cricket! We'll let that one path. He has the new idea to help food banks

:14:20.:14:27.

out. This might upset hunters, but to put pheasants, because he shoots

:14:28.:14:33.

a lot of them, in food banks so they can use them, and they would be in

:14:34.:14:39.

pies or minces. The country food trust. It seems to be not a bad

:14:40.:14:46.

idea. If you have a surfeit of food somewhere, food banks are desperate

:14:47.:14:50.

for it, why not send in there? And it is good quality food, anyone who

:14:51.:14:56.

lives in the country, there is a lot of food for free. I speak as a woman

:14:57.:15:01.

who waded through plums this morning after strong gales in Kent! It is

:15:02.:15:06.

good quality stuff, no one says they have to pluck them. We are not going

:15:07.:15:12.

down that road, plucking pheasants, thank you! That was risky, wasn't

:15:13.:15:14.

it? Thank you, Nigel Nelson

:15:15.:15:15.

and Jo Phillips, - you'll both be back at 11:30

:15:16.:15:19.

for another look at the stories Coming up next, it's

:15:20.:15:23.
