Hello, this is BBC News

with Martine Croxall.

0:00:090:00:11

We'll be taking a look at tomorrow

mornings papers in a moment -

0:00:110:00:14

first the headlines.

0:00:140:00:18

Theresa May defends the government's

record on the NHS, insisting

0:00:180:00:20

it was better prepared

for the pressures of winter

0:00:200:00:23

than it had been before,

despite hospitals having to postpone

0:00:230:00:25

tens of thousands of

non-urgent operations.

0:00:250:00:29

We have put extra money

in for coping with winter pressures.

0:00:290:00:32

In the Budget in November, we also

announced that for the next couple

0:00:320:00:35

of years, there will be further

money going into the National Health

0:00:350:00:38

Service.

0:00:380:00:43

They haven't got a plan to get

people off colleagues in

0:00:430:00:46

corridors.

0:00:460:00:47

Those elderly people this freezing

January, being treated in

0:00:470:00:49

ambulances.

0:00:490:00:54

The Prime Minister is to carry out

a cabinet reshuffle tomorrow

0:00:540:00:57

amid reports that several ministers

could be sacked or moved.

0:00:570:01:00

All 32 crew from a tanker carrying

Iranian oil tanker are missing off

0:01:000:01:03

the east coast of China.

0:01:030:01:13

It collided with a cargo

ship and caught fire,

0:01:160:01:18

spewing oil into the ocean.

0:01:180:01:19

The BBC's China editor is stepping

down from the role ,

0:01:190:01:22

citing unequal pay with her male

colleagues.Carrie Gracie says

0:01:220:01:24

she will stay with the organisation

in a different position.

0:01:240:01:26

Hello and welcome to our look ahead

to what the the papers will be

0:01:350:01:38

bringing us tomorrow.

0:01:380:01:39

With me are parliamentary

journalist, Tony Grew

0:01:390:01:41

and the entertainment

journalist, Caroline Frost.

0:01:410:01:43

Tomorrow's front pages.

0:01:430:01:46

welcome to you both. You should see

what they are wearing on their feet,

0:01:550:02:00

not appropriate at all.

0:02:000:02:01

Tomorrow's front pages.

0:02:010:02:02

Next to a picture of the papers

former editor Peter Preston

0:02:020:02:05

the Guardian says the Prime Minister

is set to reassert control

0:02:050:02:07

with a cabinet reshuffle.

0:02:070:02:08

The Financial Times says that

Britain will push to remain under EU

0:02:080:02:11

regulation when it comes

to medicines and pharmaceuticals.

0:02:110:02:21

The Telegraph says that BBC is

appointing a no deal Brexit

0:02:230:02:29

minister.

0:02:290:02:30

The Metro shows an image

of the Prime Minister who was told

0:02:300:02:33

in an interview by the journalist

Andrew Marr that, when he had

0:02:330:02:36

a stroke in 2013 , NHS delays

would have killed him.

0:02:360:02:38

The front page of the I also has

a picture from that interview -

0:02:380:02:42

where Theresa May claims she has

listened to the voters.

0:02:420:02:44

The Times leads with accusations

that the BBC is accused of breaking

0:02:440:02:47

equality law after Carrie Gracie

steps down as the

0:02:470:02:49

corporations China Editor.

0:02:490:02:50

The Daily Express says that Britain

is in the grip of a killer flu -

0:02:500:02:54

the worst outbreak for 50 years.

0:02:540:03:00

Shall we start with the reshuffle?

It's going to be tomorrow isn't it?

0:03:000:03:05

And Tuesday.

We are told it will be

reshuffled, it will be a huge

0:03:050:03:09

surprise is not given the publicity

in advance.

The Daily Telegraph is

0:03:090:03:14

saying made to appoint no deal

minister, rather than secretary of

0:03:140:03:19

state?

According to the Telegraph

that will be Steve Baker, a leading

0:03:190:03:27

Leave campaigner, his number two at

the Brexit department at the moment.

0:03:270:03:32

Eurosceptics believe that appointing

a no deal minister will help Britain

0:03:320:03:35

when a better deal on Brexit as it

was show the EU Mrs May is serious

0:03:350:03:39

about walking away. I think she is

serious about that already and not

0:03:390:03:44

appointing a new minister won't

affect what Brussels will think

0:03:440:03:49

about the exit or negotiation. But

it gives further reassurance about

0:03:490:03:54

appointing MPs on their own benchers

who are concerned that this is all

0:03:540:03:57

going to go a bit soft and not

having a weird white

0:03:570:03:59

-- red white and blue Brexit but

something different instead.

There's

0:04:020:04:08

been all sorts of shades and our

stable of ministers to deal with.

A

0:04:080:04:14

stable Brexit. People be watching

the movement in the Cabinet. Theresa

0:04:140:04:20

May is a very busy woman, she is

dealing with the health crisis as

0:04:200:04:24

well. The big four seems to be

staying put, everyone wonders where

0:04:240:04:29

they will go next but she is opting

to keep Boris as well as the

0:04:290:04:37

Chancellor, and Amber Rudd and Gavin

Williamson. The focus will be who is

0:04:370:04:45

leading the Brexit team.

The

Telegraph under the impression that

0:04:450:04:52

the Defence Secretary said big gun

of the Cabinet, he is not.

It's

0:04:520:04:55

where he's come from as well. He's

the man with a tarantula as is and

0:04:550:05:00

he?

If you have to have a chance to

intimidate, you're not intimidating.

0:05:000:05:08

You're right, in a couple of months

ago, there was a lot of chatter

0:05:080:05:12

about Boris might be moved into a

Brexit role ie out of the Foreign

0:05:120:05:17

Office. It's very clear he is now

staying in the Foreign Office. She

0:05:170:05:21

was strong enough to reshuffle the

team but not sack Boris Johnson.

0:05:210:05:25

She's not got that much many pieces

to move around? The Guardian says

0:05:250:05:31

may is trying to assert control, but

it's seems to be Justine Greening in

0:05:310:05:36

education.

And Patrick who has

wanted to stand down after the

0:05:360:05:44

disastrous election.

The mooted move

for Jeremy Hunt, if ever, people

0:05:440:05:50

will be looking at health. Whoever

takes that Basson on will be jumping

0:05:500:05:54

into the deep end of the pool.

But

also Jeremy Hunt has been in post

0:05:540:06:00

longer than any Health Secretary I

can remember. Met Theresa May rates

0:06:000:06:07

him and wants him in the role of

number two in the government, a

0:06:070:06:13

Deputy Prime Minister, coordinating

government. Will she have the

0:06:130:06:18

strength or will she think it's a

good time to move Jeremy Hunt? We

0:06:180:06:23

will find out tomorrow. Some of this

is about getting someone in an

0:06:230:06:28

taking their job, giving them a

worse job than someone doesn't want

0:06:280:06:31

to take it and resign. There may

well be some of that.

People feeling

0:06:310:06:36

sore and upset. The metro, NHS

delayed would have killed me, Mrs

0:06:360:06:42

May. This is Andrew Marr who

survived a stroke some time ago and

0:06:420:06:48

apply minister was on his programme

morning.

It's cracking television if

0:06:480:06:52

nothing else. Theresa May clearly

got a health crisis, we've see most

0:06:520:06:58

damning videos and photographs lying

on hospital and corridor floors.

0:06:580:07:04

It's an easy attack by the

opposition, she think she wants to

0:07:040:07:08

look at this but she's faced with a

very high-profile presenter with a

0:07:080:07:12

very personal and meaningful

anecdotes saying it was life or

0:07:120:07:15

death for him if the crisis had

happened now, he may have possibly

0:07:150:07:19

not survive. That's a pretty

striking blow to make at the Prime

0:07:190:07:24

Minister face to face.

How is that

as a viewer? We are often told you

0:07:240:07:31

don't make yourself the story.

The

first one is that the vast majority

0:07:310:07:35

of the voters don't expect to see

Andrew Marr on Sunday morning with

0:07:350:07:42

the interview with the Prime

Minister, which is why it's

0:07:420:07:46

interesting it's resonated onto the

front pages. One leads on what the

0:07:460:07:50

PM said in the mast beat. I take

your point, but Theresa May does not

0:07:500:07:58

have human reaction. You say your

aunt could have died and she stares

0:07:580:08:01

at you impassively. The idea she

will erode back...

What is she

0:08:010:08:07

supposed to say other than I'm

terribly sorry? -- she will demote

0:08:070:08:10

It's a very difficult line for a

Prime Minister to come back on but

0:08:140:08:18

showing some sort of empathy might

at some point be helpful as a piece

0:08:180:08:22

of advice. She saying she's

listening to the voters, I'm not

0:08:220:08:27

sure I've ever heard a politician

say they weren't.

I disagree Tony, I

0:08:270:08:33

think someone like Andrew Marr, we

don't realise how high-profile the

0:08:330:08:37

likes of them are, you are in

people's living rooms. People were

0:08:370:08:42

affected by Andrew Marr suffering as

he did and him going out and say

0:08:420:08:45

that there is a very strong personal

statement. I agree with Tony that

0:08:450:08:50

she doesn't demote on demand and she

is a bit similar to the Queen in

0:08:500:08:54

that sense, she probably recognises

a stand 100 miles away. She doesn't

0:08:540:09:02

still weeping with him on television

is going to be the answer.

Cordial

0:09:020:09:08

disagreement, that's what we like.

I've got trainers on. The Daily

0:09:080:09:19

Express, Britain in grip of killers

glue.

0:09:190:09:21

-- killer flu. I was wondering

whether Metro is still on the

0:09:220:09:29

screen. New fears the outbreak could

be worse for 50 years. We have the

0:09:290:09:36

strains of flu which can be

epidemics, pandemic.

They can be and

0:09:360:09:42

the thing to remember is the most

specific groups of the size you are

0:09:420:09:46

vulnerable, some of the headlines of

the writing around this is a bit

0:09:460:09:49

apocalyptic interview the bid Daily

Express's readership tends to be

0:09:490:09:53

over 60 so this could be a serious

health risk. We get these strains of

0:09:530:09:59

flu that come in from time to time,

not being an epidemiologist, not

0:09:590:10:03

much more I can say.

The flu jabs

are often different types of flu.

0:10:030:10:09

Sometimes the jabs run short.

I

remember once I was in Romania on

0:10:090:10:14

holiday, somewhere no one had been,

I found that the only bit of avian

0:10:140:10:23

flu to worry about was there. It was

a strange holiday.

The daily Star

0:10:230:10:29

has a map. A big red map.

Can I just

borrow that please? It's after nine

0:10:290:10:37

o'clock don't need to see a woman

who's forgotten to put her on. There

0:10:370:10:41

you go. -- that her vest on. Here's

the map with some of London and

0:10:410:10:52

quite a Dorset. Republic of Ireland

doesn't exist! Effective areas

0:10:520:11:03

making the point that the whole

country will be affected.

It's

0:11:030:11:07

apocalyptic character is presented,

but there are alerts the country, it

0:11:070:11:11

is a concern.

And not to shake hands

of people.

Shaking hands has been

0:11:110:11:16

axed by hospital.

At one point they

said it's been banned which is

0:11:160:11:22

concerning, the handshake brand.

I

think we should all be vigilant

0:11:220:11:28

because we touch to stations but

fixing of and

0:11:280:11:34

if there's one thing to take this

from deceiving its don't sneeze and

0:11:370:11:42

don't touch your face.

Don't wash

your hands all the time. Regularly.

0:11:420:11:47

Marketers are floor manager the

night and they always have the

0:11:470:11:53

alcohol wipes so we have the table

wipes down -- Mart is our floor

0:11:530:11:58

manager. Finishing with the Times,

BBC accused of breaking the law as

0:11:580:12:04

star quits over pay. This is my

colleague, friend, China editor

0:12:040:12:10

Carrie Gracie, appointed by the BBC,

the first time they had a China

0:12:100:12:19

editor in recognition of the

importance of the China story.

0:12:190:12:24

Carrie Gracie is fluent in Mandarin.

She says she can't carry on her post

0:12:240:12:31

because the pay system is this

territory at the BBC.

It's a big

0:12:310:12:35

story, we are sitting on the BBC's

studio talking about is as we

0:12:350:12:38

should. She feels she has a strong

case, she wrote a public letter to

0:12:380:12:44

the licence payer saying be warned,

the BBC may take on a case it cannot

0:12:440:12:48

possibly win. Those are fighting

words the someone coming back to

0:12:480:12:54

work within the corporation from

being out in the field. It comes at

0:12:540:12:59

a time ever so much attention in all

matters in this. It sits beneath a

0:12:590:13:02

photo of the Times movement which is

happening at the movement while

0:13:020:13:09

women are fed up of being mistreated

in the film industry, with sexual

0:13:090:13:16

harassment and inequality clearly,

this is a huge widening story and

0:13:160:13:20

she has leg put as a figurehead.

The

BBC will say and is saying that we

0:13:200:13:24

are carrying out reviews, we have

looked at a variety of levels, they

0:13:240:13:30

admit to having agenda pay gap of

10% which is a lot less than a lot

0:13:300:13:34

of companies. But that compares

average female pay.

It was yesterday

0:13:340:13:41

we saw some of the biggest companies

in the country admitting that they

0:13:410:13:47

had huge gender gaps, easyJet had

50%. What is happening that as

0:13:470:13:51

pilots, many of whom are male, has

played more than cabin crew who are

0:13:510:14:03

sometimes telemetry

0:14:030:14:04

Women. It is illegal to pay women

less than men. I'm surprised it's

0:14:040:14:11

taken until 2018 for the BBC to

realise that and have a review. I'm

0:14:110:14:16

not criticising the BBC exclusively

because this is a culture across our

0:14:160:14:22

country, across private

corporations, BBC corporations,

0:14:220:14:24

across every sector from the law...

It's ingrained, I understand why she

0:14:240:14:30

has done this but I think it's also

interesting that the North American

0:14:300:14:36

editor is paid more than Jeremie

Boga Middle East editor. So does the

0:14:360:14:43

BBC think that the North America is

more important than the Middle East?

0:14:430:14:48

It's about how do you evaluate a

job? Different people will argue the

0:14:480:14:53

different things. Where a proper

independent job evaluations carried

0:14:530:14:57

out as it can be and should be glad

that's where you can work out

0:14:570:15:00

whether people are doing the same or

like work.

What you need is

0:15:000:15:04

transparency. To enforce that. One

of the problems with this is there

0:15:040:15:09

is a history of secret handshakes

and deals, especially when you have

0:15:090:15:12

staff members and you have so-called

talent to work through agents to get

0:15:120:15:19

their fees and to negotiate. We are

seeing a shift, unfortunately for

0:15:190:15:25

Carrie Gracie she is probably going

to be one of these people that is

0:15:250:15:29

having to take the knocks as Miriam

from countries I was before that.

It

0:15:290:15:34

is conjugated and difficult about

right.

0:15:340:15:42

That's it for The Papers this hour -

we'll be back at 11.30.

0:15:420:15:45

Thank you Tony and Caroline,

0:15:450:15:46

you'll both be back at half 11

for another look at the stories
