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

:00:14.:00:16.

With me are Steve Hawkes, Deputy political editor at The Sun

:00:17.:00:22.

and the broadcaster and author Dame Joan Bakewell.

:00:23.:00:29.

The Daily Express marks Prince Philip's last solo public

:00:30.:00:32.

engagement before retiring from royal duties.

:00:33.:00:33.

The Daily Telegraph opens with claims that the Government had

:00:34.:00:36.

ignored the warnings by British-registered airlines

:00:37.:00:40.

The Metro also leads with the Duke of Edinburgh's

:00:41.:00:51.

The Sun reports on the team of scientists that have,

:00:52.:00:55.

for the first time, successfully freed embryos

:00:56.:00:58.

The Guardian also leads with this genetic treatment that may

:00:59.:01:08.

potentially prevent up to 10,000 inherited diseases.

:01:09.:01:10.

The Times leads with plans to government ways in England to reduce

:01:11.:01:23.

car pollution. So, let's have a look. Let's start with, where else

:01:24.:01:29.

but Prince Philip. 96 years old. It was bound to be the point story

:01:30.:01:33.

wasn't it the many papers. It is very touching really because here is

:01:34.:01:39.

a deal old man of 96 standing in the array on his day of retirement he is

:01:40.:01:44.

standing on a platform unsupported in the rain and what does he do, he

:01:45.:01:50.

takes off his hat rather poignantly for the national and the money gets

:01:51.:01:55.

rained on. He's going to get pneumonia hope someone is looking

:01:56.:02:01.

after him. I thought it was a very poignant expression of this is a

:02:02.:02:06.

stamina he has. His dedication to duty, even master he was doing more

:02:07.:02:08.

whirling engagements than Prince William and Prince Harry. I think it

:02:09.:02:15.

is fantastic. In the think of other coverage recently about Diana and

:02:16.:02:18.

remember where the royal family was there in about place. And now I

:02:19.:02:24.

think with wailing Katyn Harry. That's macro I think with William

:02:25.:02:29.

and Kate and Harry. It is great from page, great picture and it is Nancy

:02:30.:02:35.

Philip Ing celebrated. One of the papers say go on being a rascal. He

:02:36.:02:40.

is famous for his lapses of politeness. He still manages to be

:02:41.:02:44.

both amusing and racist and offensive at the same time, and any

:02:45.:02:50.

he could carry it off. He is a remarkable individual in that he was

:02:51.:02:54.

quite an ordinary and very, very dashing naval officer when he

:02:55.:03:01.

married the Queen. He was a really very handsome, tall, blond and she

:03:02.:03:05.

was smitten and it was a great marriage and it has gone on for so

:03:06.:03:09.

long and it is not often you hear stories that that. It is as

:03:10.:03:14.

legendary as Victoria and Albert. It is our version of Victoria and

:03:15.:03:18.

Albert so in that sense it is a real historic landmark. I wonder what he

:03:19.:03:24.

will do in retirement, the idea of retiring 96 is alarming. We will all

:03:25.:03:31.

do that alarm Murray eventually. -- we will all do that eventually. It

:03:32.:03:36.

is not the last we will see of him. He may support the Queen in some

:03:37.:03:40.

engagements as well. Pretty incredible. Almost duties. And his

:03:41.:03:46.

charities, that's the thing that some people bat makes you think what

:03:47.:03:49.

will come next, we have all been used to the Queen and Prince Philip

:03:50.:03:54.

and you wonder what happens with support the monarchy, how it change

:03:55.:03:58.

if Charles eventually takes over what will be different then will

:03:59.:04:02.

retire into being more I'll will go straight William's interesting. It

:04:03.:04:07.

is interesting that we will have the Diana tapes soon and the fact that I

:04:08.:04:10.

am at three macro dependent on him and had a good relationship. Was she

:04:11.:04:15.

tried having she was quite sympathetic about that innovative of

:04:16.:04:19.

way could do. Wire you wonder what he might have said to have. The

:04:20.:04:26.

Daily Express says Sepe closes two, three, four, 520 and 20 one. A

:04:27.:04:32.

souvenir edition. One of those pixies you will remember in there.

:04:33.:04:40.

It is the summer. He was going to the European destination this is

:04:41.:04:45.

worrying. Next week. That the raised because of new security messages are

:04:46.:04:50.

causing De Mike don't have enough staff. It is the perfect storm, you

:04:51.:04:59.

have the high security a lot more people go abroad to output is that

:05:00.:05:02.

most of the year found that many have this mass influx of tourists

:05:03.:05:07.

not just from Britain, it's registers, it's America, Austria,

:05:08.:05:10.

whatever. Then you have this underinvestment where they have not

:05:11.:05:14.

got the systems they need. It is all meant for the right reason is for

:05:15.:05:19.

but people caught up in this it is misery. And you have the BEA Systems

:05:20.:05:24.

pressure on top of it. Akimbo in Barcelona recently announced

:05:25.:05:26.

wandering fan site had apparently but it was a real Q. And there was

:05:27.:05:31.

no particular explanation except you have to have all this stodgy going

:05:32.:05:35.

to the electronics in your eyes and all that. People were doing it

:05:36.:05:39.

faster they could but there simply when enough machines and there was

:05:40.:05:45.

enough people. There were so many people travelling, the thing is to

:05:46.:05:49.

travel when other people aren't travelling. The school holidays

:05:50.:05:53.

everyone is time to go over that. The Telegraph says that ministers,

:05:54.:05:58.

British ministers, ignored the aircraft warning that they were too

:05:59.:06:04.

late to ring counterparts. Animal the criticising the government, you

:06:05.:06:08.

know that, but I think this is a stretch what are we supposed to do

:06:09.:06:13.

from the Spanish border control? Also airlines UK other body

:06:14.:06:16.

responsible for registered carriers were what were they doing if they've

:06:17.:06:20.

known about this since May how may passengers knew to ten Valley, that

:06:21.:06:24.

sort of thing. It is very easy, I hold my hand up, it is good thing to

:06:25.:06:27.

do to hold the government to account but it's a bit too far and this one.

:06:28.:06:30.

This is a whims of what could happen. We have problems. We haven't

:06:31.:06:40.

got Brexit yet. It's not particularly a Brexit issue,

:06:41.:06:45.

anywhere outside of this genuine. I think it is a reminder that it needs

:06:46.:06:49.

investment on both sides. If we are good sooth is and is going to happen

:06:50.:06:53.

the government needs to invest. And this is not the government's

:06:54.:06:57.

responsibility. It is note good saying why didn't governments do

:06:58.:07:02.

anything. They can't one end nothing... They can't run

:07:03.:07:06.

everything. It sounds like the airlines are getting out there to

:07:07.:07:09.

say this is not our fault that is border control. That is an

:07:10.:07:12.

interesting point is as you say we will have a whole new immigration

:07:13.:07:16.

system that we have to get up and running. It is why Philip Hammond

:07:17.:07:22.

God blesses Talkin bout this transition phase. They need to hire

:07:23.:07:28.

2000 more border people and that will take 18 months. I can't believe

:07:29.:07:37.

it's going to happen. We will all be queueing months before we go on

:07:38.:07:39.

holiday. We were the key weeks before we come home. No point going.

:07:40.:07:49.

Holiday in the Lake District. Like David Cameron said anywhere to

:07:50.:07:58.

Lanzarote. Let's move on to the sun, this is your report. It is

:07:59.:08:01.

incredible thinking about where we've been a high robot speaking to

:08:02.:08:09.

people and now this breakthrough if we are able to take out faulty genes

:08:10.:08:15.

in DNA and save 10,000 people it is incredible. We do think, where is

:08:16.:08:20.

this going? It's great you can save lives just wonder five, ten, 15

:08:21.:08:24.

years what will the regulations look like where we'll end up? There is

:08:25.:08:30.

the ethical question this is for people with the devastating

:08:31.:08:32.

inherited diseases and this offers some hope to them. This about I/O

:08:33.:08:38.

genetics which is the shape of the future. This is the first big

:08:39.:08:43.

development which will begin to shape how the whole of the century

:08:44.:08:50.

maps out. This is a fantastic introduction of a way of avoiding

:08:51.:08:54.

inherited illnesses. I've known people who have not had that

:08:55.:09:00.

treatment and have had children disadvantaged and disabled

:09:01.:09:02.

unavoidably so and we can now avoid it. How boring is that but it opens

:09:03.:09:11.

the possibilities of genes dabbling. -- how brilliant is that. Although

:09:12.:09:16.

people are mentioning design of babies saying it is beyond the pale.

:09:17.:09:23.

One day soon somebody will say, perhaps we could just push it a

:09:24.:09:28.

little bit further, a little bit further so designer babies are

:09:29.:09:30.

somewhere down the line and this is one of the greatest scientific

:09:31.:09:37.

medical changes are century. The regulations, as you say, the stuff

:09:38.:09:40.

has gone through Parliament and we are seen as more liberal than

:09:41.:09:44.

America for this kind of thing. But, how concerned to thing MPs are about

:09:45.:09:48.

this? Recently mitochondrial disease that has been in the news there was

:09:49.:09:51.

a change in the law to let that happen but it is something that it

:09:52.:09:56.

is a matter of conscience that MPs will discuss this. He threw tricky

:09:57.:10:00.

if you if you think about what they get efficient over -- a hugely

:10:01.:10:07.

tricky. I have no idea how they will react to this one. All the religious

:10:08.:10:12.

people will be involved in this, we debated the mitochondria in the

:10:13.:10:15.

House of Lords and went through but the debate was really strong with

:10:16.:10:18.

strong opinions about side and that will happen quite rightly so. We

:10:19.:10:23.

don't want to slide into genetic changes without really paying much

:10:24.:10:26.

attention. You need to know what you are doing so there will be huge

:10:27.:10:30.

resistance and there will be blocks and things will move slowly but they

:10:31.:10:35.

will all move in the same direction eventually. So, people will be

:10:36.:10:40.

disturbed about and there will be attempts to put limits on it, quite

:10:41.:10:45.

rightly, but once it happens the gene genie is out of the bottle. And

:10:46.:10:50.

I'm sorry about this picture, by the way. Wow Steve is not taking any

:10:51.:11:01.

responsibility. Tell your boss that we do not like it. I'll pass it on.

:11:02.:11:06.

Let's go to the guardian of the sports pages and we have the

:11:07.:11:11.

incredible signing from Barcelona, Neymar. You think about their

:11:12.:11:14.

Hammond struggling to balance the books of any of dotball, this guy

:11:15.:11:21.

Neymar leaving Barcelona. He didn't not the later the turnstiles. He

:11:22.:11:29.

went to Paris St Germain on ?265,000 a week tax-free. This is again Paris

:11:30.:11:33.

Saint-Germain recently come up in France and they are now making their

:11:34.:11:37.

mark on buying one of the Best Buy plays the world. And there's this

:11:38.:11:40.

big picture next to rip the English Linus is, the bestseller in a

:11:41.:11:47.

women's bubble is ?35,000 a year. This is the England ladies team who

:11:48.:11:50.

are in the semifinals of the US tomorrow. I think the contrast is

:11:51.:11:55.

amazing. Keep waiting for football bubble to burst. It is a traditional

:11:56.:11:59.

working man's sport. How supporters are going to feel about this. At

:12:00.:12:02.

some point there will be a salary cap because... Like an American

:12:03.:12:08.

certain sports because it is incredible. You could buy the whole

:12:09.:12:12.

New England Patriots team but how much you're playing the Neymar.

:12:13.:12:16.

Incredible. The discrepancy between the women situation the men

:12:17.:12:22.

situation is a worse than the BBC! LAUGHTER Sammer thereby think she

:12:23.:12:25.

would get more than I would for modelling. Edit think there's anyone

:12:26.:12:30.

on the BBC on 40 million, haven't quite restart. Are you sure? Women's

:12:31.:12:37.

sport seems like it is getting more publicity. It is superbly any

:12:38.:12:43.

problems with rugby. Will be union have ended contracts but there are

:12:44.:12:50.

incredible leaps and bounds. They are saying about show women's

:12:51.:12:54.

football is on sat state. That's what changes it ever gets green. It

:12:55.:12:58.

is so wonderful to see and just so thrilling. It is part of all the

:12:59.:13:03.

changes that I've lived through my long life. To see the changes and it

:13:04.:13:07.

is arrived at sport but arrived with such triumph that is what so

:13:08.:13:12.

glorious. We had a great summer the under 19 is an under 21 is winning.

:13:13.:13:18.

Back to the Telegraph are the final story. Family rearing isn't bad but

:13:19.:13:21.

it is very different this is suggesting that people sit in

:13:22.:13:24.

different rooms to watch different programmes. -- family viewing. My

:13:25.:13:31.

mum and dad in the same room own month is wearing headphones watching

:13:32.:13:35.

the iPad and my dad is watching TV. There are so much on offer. There

:13:36.:13:38.

was a time where there were two channels, then there were three

:13:39.:13:41.

channels and families used to argue about which of those they would

:13:42.:13:45.

enter what is because there was no eye player, there was no recording.

:13:46.:13:51.

You watch till you missed it. So, of course you'll sat round when you

:13:52.:13:55.

settle for a general agreement but now there are so much choices. The

:13:56.:14:00.

same different technologies by which you can, I think the core platforms,

:14:01.:14:03.

that you can watch on every one has a choice. My four-year-old now if

:14:04.:14:09.

you try to explain to him this is not an she just does not understand

:14:10.:14:13.

it. We watching a programme last night, the first of set that people

:14:14.:14:18.

now binge watch series. We watched the first of a new programme The

:14:19.:14:26.

Night Of and we immediately wanted to watch another one. We watch

:14:27.:14:30.

things like we used to be the book. It is change things. We've covered a

:14:31.:14:36.

lot of France might. Lots of lovely Jos Buttler is. That is us -- lots

:14:37.:14:41.

of lovely Jos Buttler 's. Don't forget you can see the front

:14:42.:14:42.

pages of the papers online It's all there for you -

:14:43.:14:47.

7 days a week. evening you can watch it

:14:48.:14:50.

later on BBC iPlayer. Thank you Steve Hawkes

:14:51.:14:54.

and Dame Joan Bakewell. Good evening, Southern areas bore

:14:55.:15:10.

the brunt of the wet weather during today.
