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

:00:00.:00:00.

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

:00:07.:00:20.

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

:00:21.:00:27.

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

:00:28.:00:31.

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

:00:32.:00:34.

into detail. The lead in the Times

:00:35.:00:35.

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

:00:36.:00:38.

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

:00:39.:00:41.

Conservative MPs are urging Cabinet members to stop publicly setting out

:00:42.:00:44.

competing visions on issues, like free movement,

:00:45.:00:47.

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

:00:48.:00:49.

bank has chosen Amsterdam for its banking headquarters

:00:50.:00:51.

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

:00:52.:00:54.

is the decision by President Putin to expel 755 US diplomats

:00:55.:00:58.

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

:00:59.:01:01.

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

:01:02.:01:05.

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

:01:06.:01:12.

tourists are routinely charged hundreds of pounds for scratches

:01:13.:01:14.

and dents on hire cars The Sun criticises Channel Four

:01:15.:01:17.

over its plan to broadcast a controversial documentary

:01:18.:01:22.

The Diana Tapes. And that's the lead

:01:23.:01:24.

too in The Mirror. The story is summed

:01:25.:01:27.

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

:01:28.:01:47.

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

:01:48.:01:51.

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

:01:52.:01:55.

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

:01:56.:02:00.

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

:02:01.:02:07.

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

:02:08.:02:18.

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

:02:19.:02:23.

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

:02:24.:02:28.

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

:02:29.:02:32.

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

:02:33.:02:36.

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

:02:37.:02:40.

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

:02:41.:02:44.

things like animal welfare standards. Cabinet is split. What

:02:45.:02:50.

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

:02:51.:02:54.

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

:02:55.:03:01.

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

:03:02.:03:05.

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

:03:06.:03:09.

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

:03:10.:03:15.

are reported on in the Guardian. Just hearing different positions

:03:16.:03:21.

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

:03:22.:03:30.

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

:03:31.:03:33.

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

:03:34.:03:37.

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

:03:38.:03:43.

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

:03:44.:03:45.

are talking about transitional periods, about the free movement

:03:46.:03:52.

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

:03:53.:03:56.

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

:03:57.:04:02.

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

:04:03.:04:14.

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

:04:15.:04:20.

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

:04:21.:04:26.

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

:04:27.:04:29.

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

:04:30.:04:34.

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

:04:35.:04:41.

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

:04:42.:04:46.

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

:04:47.:04:50.

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

:04:51.:04:54.

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

:04:55.:05:00.

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

:05:01.:05:13.

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

:05:14.:05:16.

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

:05:17.:05:23.

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

:05:24.:05:29.

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

:05:30.:05:34.

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

:05:35.:05:41.

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

:05:42.:05:54.

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

:05:55.:06:00.

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

:06:01.:06:05.

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

:06:06.:06:12.

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

:06:13.:06:15.

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

:06:16.:06:19.

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

:06:20.:06:25.

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

:06:26.:06:29.

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

:06:30.:06:34.

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

:06:35.:06:37.

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

:06:38.:06:42.

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

:06:43.:06:47.

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

:06:48.:06:52.

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

:06:53.:06:57.

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

:06:58.:07:02.

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

:07:03.:07:06.

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

:07:07.:07:10.

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

:07:11.:07:14.

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

:07:15.:07:18.

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

:07:19.:07:22.

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

:07:23.:07:26.

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

:07:27.:07:29.

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

:07:30.:07:33.

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

:07:34.:07:37.

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

:07:38.:07:41.

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

:07:42.:07:46.

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

:07:47.:07:50.

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

:07:51.:07:55.

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

:07:56.:08:01.

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

:08:02.:08:05.

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

:08:06.:08:09.

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

:08:10.:08:21.

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

:08:22.:08:27.

Times. That is a fantastic photograph at Passchendaele, as

:08:28.:08:35.

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

:08:36.:08:39.

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

:08:40.:08:45.

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

:08:46.:08:54.

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

:08:55.:08:58.

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

:08:59.:09:08.

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

:09:09.:09:15.

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

:09:16.:09:19.

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

:09:20.:09:26.

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

:09:27.:09:30.

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

:09:31.:09:33.

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

:09:34.:09:38.

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

:09:39.:09:43.

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

:09:44.:09:47.

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

:09:48.:09:53.

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

:09:54.:10:01.

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

:10:02.:10:05.

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

:10:06.:10:11.

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

:10:12.:10:14.

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

:10:15.:10:18.

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

:10:19.:10:25.

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

:10:26.:10:37.

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

:10:38.:10:43.

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

:10:44.:10:48.

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

:10:49.:11:06.

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

:11:07.:11:10.

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

:11:11.:11:15.

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

:11:16.:11:20.

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

:11:21.:11:30.

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

:11:31.:11:36.

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

:11:37.:11:40.

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

:11:41.:11:46.

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

:11:47.:11:58.

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

:11:59.:12:05.

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

:12:06.:12:14.

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

:12:15.:12:22.

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

:12:23.:12:28.

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

:12:29.:12:32.

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

:12:33.:12:36.

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

:12:37.:12:43.

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

:12:44.:12:48.

people unrelentingly everyday. Facebook and Instagram will end at

:12:49.:12:52.

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

:12:53.:12:58.

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

:12:59.:13:01.

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

:13:02.:13:05.

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

:13:06.:13:10.

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

:13:11.:13:17.

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

:13:18.:13:21.

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

:13:22.:13:25.

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

:13:26.:13:33.

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

:13:34.:13:36.

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

:13:37.:13:40.

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

:13:41.:13:44.

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

:13:45.:13:48.

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

:13:49.:13:59.

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

:14:00.:14:06.

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

:14:07.:14:11.

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

:14:12.:14:14.

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

:14:15.:14:16.

messages. Calls for roads to be close to allow

:14:17.:14:29.

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

:14:30.:14:35.

youngsters activities. This is around childhood obesity and also

:14:36.:14:42.

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

:14:43.:14:51.

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

:14:52.:14:54.

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

:14:55.:15:02.

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

:15:03.:15:08.

watching. Next is the film review. Goodbye.
