A very personal tale of love in the romantic comedy The Big Sick. Find


out what James King made of this and the other releases in The Film


Review. So welcome to our look ahead to what the papers bring us


tomorrow. We are joined tonight by Caroline Frost and Tony Grew. Good


evening to you both. Let's look at some of the front pages before we go


into detail. The lead in the Times


is the insistence by the Chancellor, Philip Hammond, that Britain


won't be turned into a tax The Guardian says that senior


Conservative MPs are urging Cabinet members to stop publicly setting out


competing visions on issues, like free movement,


as part of Brexit. The FT reports that Japan's largest


bank has chosen Amsterdam for its banking headquarters


as a result of uncertainty over The top story in The Metro


is the decision by President Putin to expel 755 US diplomats


from Russia in what it calls The Express claims that workers,


who are cashing-in their hard-earned pension pots early, are being


overtaxed to the tune of millions. The Daily Mail says that British


tourists are routinely charged hundreds of pounds for scratches


and dents on hire cars The Sun criticises Channel Four


over its plan to broadcast a controversial documentary


The Diana Tapes. And that's the lead


too in The Mirror. The story is summed


up in its headline, So a real mix of stories tomorrow.


Let's start here with the story in the Times. Philip Hammond says we


won't become a tax haven after Brexit. This is a warning, because


there has been talk of special deals. The Chancellor is selling out


his view of what he think the UK's relationship should be with you to


make the EU. But he is also trying to reassure the you to make you. --


should be with the EU. -- but he is still tried to reassure the EU. It


is interesting that he said he would expect the country to remain with a


social, economic, and cultural model that is recognisably European. That


seems not to chime with what is being said by Liam Fox, who is in


America meeting his equivalent in the US government, and talking up


the idea of a quick and easy trade deal with the US that would change


things like animal welfare standards. Cabinet is split. What


can I tell you? It was a big split down the middle of the Cabinet. You


people ever Chancellor and the Home Secretary who are looking to take a


transitional approach, and then you have people like Liam Fox David


Davis, and even though we don't know is that we would they want, we are


aware that it is not what the Chancellor wants. And those messages


are reported on in the Guardian. Just hearing different positions


from different cabinet members, while Theresa May's not around. I


know. Watching it is quite fun, as a completely detached observer, but


obviously each of these decisions will affect all of us, eventually.


At the moment readers feel as if there is a bit of, as you say, one


half of the Cabinet said to be in denial the breast will happen, they


are talking about transitional periods, about the free movement


continuing, saying it will be recognisably European. And then you


have the hard liners who say that this is not what they had in mind.


Watching it, as they remain, I feel a sense of comfort that perhaps


things won't change it Delic at all. -- the Guardian. -- I get a sense of


comfort that perhaps it won't change it at all. I don't think it is they


want to stop Brexit or that it won't happen, but they want transitional


arrangements that they think will cushion our exit and that will take


two or three years. But do you think it is a sign of a lack of confidence


in the vision? Not at all. I think the word, and I am sorry to use this


word, but it is reality. If you want to avoid... You have Liam Fox saying


I was not part of the discussions, other people say they were not part


of those discussions. Well, what discussions were you part of? Where


coming to a wreck to make reckoning. -- we are coming to an reckoning. --


magazine. Free movement is something that people want to happen, because


many people voted for immigration. -- a reckoning. Yes and no. We have


70 million people voting 70 different ways. This is a series of


commerce issues. But that is why the Guardian has focused on this. But I


was as a viewer voted to leave, think it was some immigration, that


is about to happen. -- but I want to say to those who voted. They are


split on this issue. So clearly different opinions coming out of our


guests tonight as well. But that is Brexit all over. Let's move onto the


Daily Telegraph. The United States, that we saw earlier on BBC News, in


a show of force, not the first time they have done this, but there has


been military exercises after the last ballistic missile. But it does


give worry too the possibility of the military intervention. Yes. This


has been done in response to yet another test, another show of great


nuclear power in the last few days by North Korea, and I think there


were close that he could reach the broader part of the mainland of the


United States, which is on the enough to give Eveready pause for


thought. What worries me is that this is going on almost in the


background. -- go through. We know that Donald Trump can act almost


unilaterally. We saw that when he involved himself in the Middle East.


One unlike is the Game of Thrones musical chairs going on in the White


House. It is such a fragile time internationally. When you talk about


the weapons of this sort of power, that is when you want a stable


force. We do know what is going on in North Korea. We hear details of


people being shot by having long hair cuts, but this is all


anecdotal. We do have access to what is going on in the White House, and


it is certainly not reassuring. Yes. I am one of few journalists that


have got into North Korea. And the country is a contradiction of


itself. Sometimes it seems not to know what it stands for and it


wants, but you have a leader who needs to show that he is strong to


his people. And I often wonder if a lot of this is about hunger and


support, as was threatening the West, as well. You could just as


well be describing the United States. Easter Show that is strong


to the people who support him. Obviously, it is more democratic in


America that North Korea but this is concerning for North Korea. -- he


needs to show that he is strong to the people. Not surprisingly story


for me is that analysts are now saying that the flight data from the


test on Friday night show that the broader part of the United States


are now in range. Let's move on, or rather back to the front page of the


Times. That is a fantastic photograph at Passchendaele, as


people gather to mark the centenary of the battle there. This is a


reminder of the horrors of war, and here we have the tensions in North


Korea, we've got Afghanistan, and we have Iraq... War goes on, does that?


I agree. This is so crucial. -- war goes on, doesn't it? You can imagine


how a reading stops for the last bugle, which has been going on every


day since. These moments are so poignant. This is the great loss. I


mean, the Duke of Cambridge talked about 84,000 people that did not


come back. These are huge numbers of families, correct. This is when,


with some of social media today, we despair much of it, but when we can


shed images like this and we see beautiful images of poppies in


fields, and it is not that far away, and it could happen again. That is


what these lessons are for. I mean it is. And more coverage on BBC News


tomorrow, as well. The Daily Mirror is one of a number of tabloid


papers, Tony, reporting on their fury over the Diana Tapes, as they


have become known. These are on later this week on Channel 4? This


is hard news. It is meant to be on later on in the week. What we do


know is that these tapes tap into a period. The recorded between 1992


and 1993, which we know was the separation of the Prince and


Princess of Wales. At its time, that it was a huge story that rocked the


pillars of the establishment. We know that Princess Diana, she had


already cooperated on her book, with Andrew Morton, even though she


didn't acknowledge that. The Panorama came in 1983. But she put


all of this information into these very personal tapes. This was with


her voice coach. At the gentlemen involved encouraged her to unburden


herself. -- that happened in 1995, the Panorama. Channel 4 have decided


that history has shifted further. This is all about this now hurting


the boys, Earl Spencer, her brother, has said this is appalling and


should not be broadcast. She talked at one point about getting help


dealing with the "Lady Boss", which is a vis the Queen. -- which is


obviously. This is the point that will be talked about in the media,


because this is not just, I think the Daily Mirror, and the Sun, they


have been careful to quote in large chunks what is so horrifying. Let's


look at the Guardian, Tony. This is so in it was reported on the BBC, on


Panorama. Then as PCC started to reveal that men have eating


disorders as well. -- The NSPCC. But this is not some editors reported on


widely. It is another story that we have men with eating disorders. What


is the story is that there is an increase in those hospitalised for


it. I thought after readiness of all the things I read in the last few


days, all the things that I have heard about how wonderful and Hamas


and find Love Island is, this pumps out messages to young people and all


people unrelentingly everyday. Facebook and Instagram will end at


the death of us, I think I won a look at the way that it harms us,


harms our children, harms our self-esteem... Don't you think there


is possibly two things happening here? This is to be a rise of men


being hospitalised for eating disorders, but there is also been a


rise for women, as well? You think there is a culture now where men


feel that they can come, or rather, they now can recognise that they


have an eating disorder, but also there is a confidence now where you


can talk about mental health issues as well? It is an equality in both


senses in terms of, I mean, this is a commercial imperative. We have


seen huge great corporations see how much money has been made at


persuading women that the product they were told six months ago is


absolutely intrinsic to any kind of cosmetic beauty or public appeal,


and they realise there is also money to be made by encouraging men. The


days of a shellac of Brill Cream are long gone. As Tony said, a huge


downside is that now men are realising just what is involved, the


cost we pay is huge if you are not robust. Not everybody looks ahead


billboard, and of easily some are more sensitive than others to those


messages. Calls for roads to be close to allow


children to play in the streets. It says that pilot schemes increase


youngsters activities. This is around childhood obesity and also


parents need more cautious. I am not sure how motorists will react. But


roads are not just for motorists. This is the antidote, one of


potential the context of what we have discussed. How it used to be.


Many thanks for taking us through the papers. And thanks to you for


watching. Next is the film review. Goodbye.
