Hello and welcome to our look ahead

to what the papers will be

0:00:160:00:19

bringing us tomorrow.

0:00:190:00:20

With me are parliamentary

journalist, Tony Grew

0:00:200:00:25

and the entertainment

journalist, Caroline Frost.

0:00:250:00:26

Tomorrow's front pages.

0:00:260:00:32

A reshuffle and the Golden Globes.

Who would have planned it?

0:00:330:00:37

Alongside a picture of the papers

former editor Peter Preston

0:00:370:00:40

the Guardian says the Prime Minister

is set to reassert control

0:00:400:00:43

with a cabinet

reshuffle next week.

0:00:430:00:45

The Financial Times claims Britain

will push to remain under EU

0:00:450:00:48

regulation when it comes

to medicines and pharmaceuticals.

0:00:480:00:50

The BBC's former China Editor,

Carrie Gracie, is pictured

0:00:500:00:52

on the front page of the Telegraph.

0:00:520:00:56

It reports that the Prime Minister

is set to appoint a 'no deal Brexit'

0:00:570:01:00

cabinet minister.

0:01:000:01:05

Carrie Gracie is also on the front

of the Times who details why she has

0:01:050:01:09

has stepped down from her post

at the BBC in protest

0:01:090:01:16

at what she called an indefensible

pay gap between men and women.

0:01:160:01:20

The Prime Minister is

on the front of the Metro

0:01:200:01:22

who quote an interview

with the journalist Andrew Marr

0:01:220:01:25

who told Theresa May that -

when he had a stroke in 2013 -

0:01:250:01:29

NHS delays would have killed him.

0:01:290:01:30

The front page of the I also has

a picture from that interview -

0:01:300:01:34

with quotes from Theresa May

claiming she has listened

0:01:340:01:37

to the voters.

0:01:370:01:37

The Daily Express says that Britain

is in the grip of a killer flu -

0:01:370:01:41

the worst outbreak for 50 years.

0:01:410:01:43

And, the Daily Mail claims that

children are being bombarded

0:01:430:01:46

with gambling adverts

during televised football matches.

0:01:460:01:52

You are scribbling a lot.

And taking

it very seriously.

Let's look at the

0:01:520:02:01

Guardian. Featuring the reshuffle

tomorrow. May fix to assert control

0:02:010:02:07

with the reshuffle. She is not

moving that many around necessarily

0:02:070:02:13

-- but it seems some people have

things worried about. -- some things

0:02:130:02:20

to be worried about.

The Chancellor

are rumoured to be sticking. Good

0:02:200:02:27

news for Boris fans. He will

continue to be Foreign Secretary.

0:02:270:02:31

Yes, it is all about Brexit and the

idea that she will be creating. It

0:02:310:02:37

is a minister without portfolio. A

minister thought no deal. It doesn't

0:02:370:02:41

sound like a job but it is clearly a

big job, if it comes for that. -- if

0:02:410:02:46

it comes to that. Let's see who

would pick up that magic but on.

Why

0:02:460:02:51

would she have such a minister?

Eurosceptics are concerned

0:02:510:02:58

government won't have the hardest

Brexit they might have hoped for.

0:02:580:03:01

The Prime Minister is attempting

right -- to reassure the right ring.

0:03:010:03:07

-- right wing. There will be a

minister whose job it will be,

0:03:070:03:14

within the Department, to prepare

for a no deal.

That is the front of

0:03:140:03:20

the Daily Telegraph as well.

The

Guardian is leading on this. This is

0:03:200:03:28

the biggest in modern history. It

has been coming for weeks.

We

0:03:280:03:32

shouldn't have been surprised.

Not

at all. I take issue with the fact

0:03:320:03:37

that the Home Office, the Treasury

and the Commonwealth, the defence

0:03:370:03:43

Department is not one of the three

of state. Another would say that

0:03:430:03:47

David Davis is the most important

person in the Cabinet.

And wonder

0:03:470:03:51

how he will feel about having a no

deal Brexit minister.

In a sense, it

0:03:510:03:58

is a strange position to be in. The

UK has already said they will be an

0:03:580:04:04

ideal when it comes to Ireland. The

aviation industry said they don't

0:04:040:04:10

want to leave EU regulation.

Pharmaceuticals as well.

The jobs

0:04:100:04:15

and the expertise it would leave. We

keep the regulations will stop it is

0:04:150:04:20

not difficult to understand that if

we are living in 2019, we have to

0:04:200:04:24

set up our own medicines agency by

then.

If we haven't, we need to ask

0:04:240:04:28

the European Union if we can stay

under their control.

Nobody said it

0:04:280:04:34

was going to be easy.

These were

supposed to be the easiest

0:04:340:04:43

negotiations in history, we were

told.

You can be optimistic and many

0:04:430:04:49

find the reality tricky. Speaking of

which. The Times. BBC a juiced of

0:04:490:04:57

breaking law. A star quits over pay.

This is Carrie Gracie who obviously

0:04:570:05:02

used to be a presenter here on the

news channel. We may see her back

0:05:020:05:06

here before long. She has stepped

down as the BBC's first China editor

0:05:060:05:10

because she feels the BBC needs to

do far more to pay men and women

0:05:100:05:15

equally for doing it will work.

Lots

of women have spoken out in the same

0:05:150:05:21

inequality ever since the salaries

were revealed last summer. Arguably,

0:05:210:05:26

is achieved the first to walk the

walk in the sense of saying enough

0:05:260:05:30

is enough? I can't think of the

previous person. You may be able to

0:05:300:05:35

say something but certainly it is a

very high-profile move to make, to

0:05:350:05:39

say, I have a high profile job. She

is one of the top five editors in

0:05:390:05:45

the organisation in foreign fields.

To say she won't do it because it's

0:05:450:05:49

not there, to give up a job she

clearly loves and is very well

0:05:490:05:52

qualified to do, is a huge statement

and something I think the BBC will

0:05:520:05:56

have to take note of, even as they

say they have this enquiry pending

0:05:560:06:00

and watch this space.

There are lots

of reviews of the BBC has done to

0:06:000:06:06

look at aspects of the pay

structure. It says there is no

0:06:060:06:09

systemic discrimination.

It is

interesting they would say that. The

0:06:090:06:13

only reason we're having this

conversation is because transparency

0:06:130:06:16

was forced on the BBC and the

government intends to force that

0:06:160:06:20

transparency on a of other British

companies later on when the

0:06:200:06:24

legislation comes through. I think

that will make a difference. The

0:06:240:06:27

stark reality is put in front of us.

Who is paid what and what is the

0:06:270:06:32

rationale and explanation for paying

some of those women less than men?

0:06:320:06:36

It is not just the BBC. I think the

transparency will cause our major

0:06:360:06:39

culture change will stop we have

rarely seen is in government

0:06:390:06:43

departments. The Bank of England has

a 20% pay cut. They now have to

0:06:430:06:47

justify that, explain it, and

eliminate it.

The BBC will say there

0:06:470:06:52

are many organisations with the

problem is far, far worse than they

0:06:520:06:55

are here.

The BBC are a public

broadcaster. High standards are

0:06:550:07:00

held. It will be interesting to see

if these newspapers will be

0:07:000:07:07

trumpeting their own gender pay

cuts.

They don't have faces that

0:07:070:07:11

people recognise and it means

something as you are saying about

0:07:110:07:15

Andrew Maher's discussion with

Theresa May. These things land in

0:07:150:07:18

people's living room. -- Andrew

Marr.

How many men, how many women,

0:07:180:07:28

et cetera.

The FTI trying to tackle

this as well. It is difficult to get

0:07:280:07:35

the information that you want

because people understandably don't

0:07:350:07:39

want to share what they own. -- the

FT are trying.

When Jennifer

0:07:390:07:47

Lawrence revealed what they were

being paid Ash what she was been

0:07:470:07:50

paid.

-- what she was being paid.

You need to implement these things.

0:07:500:08:01

Transparency helps.

The picture on

the Times are of these well-known

0:08:010:08:09

women of Hollywood who are wearing

these" times up" T-shirts.

0:08:090:08:19

Protesting against the sexual

assault allegations.

We had the

0:08:190:08:30

organised response which is the body

of very profile -- very high-profile

0:08:300:08:35

women launched on January one. The

important thing is that none of

0:08:350:08:40

these women, we hope, and it seems

to be, have suffered either

0:08:400:08:45

professionally or personally as we

know from Natalie Portman, either

0:08:450:08:51

long coria, these people are a

listers. -- Eva Longoria. We hope

0:08:510:09:03

this will transcend the film

industry so we can all feel

0:09:030:09:06

supported.

The Daily Mail is

reporting on how which will affect

0:09:060:09:09

the Golden Globes when we see all of

the stars on the red carpet. Reese

0:09:090:09:15

Witherspoon leads in black. That is

the dress code this year.

That

0:09:150:09:20

sounds like a limp response. If I

was these women in Hollywood, I

0:09:200:09:29

would be demanding to work with

female directors, I would be

0:09:290:09:32

demanding that men and women were

paid equally. If these Hollywood a

0:09:320:09:35

listers really have that much power,

wearing back to an award ceremony

0:09:350:09:40

when you are going to do what you

always do which is stand there and

0:09:400:09:44

hand out awards to people. It

doesn't sound like a powerful

0:09:440:09:47

response.

As powerful as they are,

though, being the first to speak out

0:09:470:09:51

and not knowing whether everybody is

following behind you, is a scary

0:09:510:09:54

place to be.

The more you have to

lose, the biggest mistakes.

0:09:540:10:00

Arguably, Rose McGowan, brave though

she is because she has been so alone

0:10:000:10:03

and so isolated so long in her

opposition to Harvey once been

0:10:030:10:07

forced up long before any of this

kicked off, I've been thinking from

0:10:070:10:14

her for years. -- Weinstein. Now we

see Meryl Streep. Whether they want

0:10:140:10:23

to be seen as being on the right

side of history or not, to me it

0:10:230:10:27

doesn't matter because the end

result will be some collective clout

0:10:270:10:30

that the men in the industry have to

listen to because they want to be

0:10:300:10:34

seen on the right side of history as

well.

Letter that the Telegraph. The

0:10:340:10:38

Queen reveals her disc front -- her

discomfort. -- let's go to the

0:10:380:10:47

Telegraph.

The Queen will be talking

about the coronation. Very unusual.

0:10:470:10:54

If it is an interview format, it

will be the first time ever.

She

0:10:540:10:59

will be reminiscing about the events

65 years ago. Classic

0:10:590:11:04

understatement. Her frankly horrible

journey in the state coach.

0:11:040:11:12

18th-century modes of transport,

they look great from the outside but

0:11:120:11:17

they must be very comfortable on the

inside with suspension and so on.

0:11:170:11:24

Let alone with the tiara.

Do you

remember the poor state of Princess

0:11:240:11:30

Diana's wedding dress. When she

entered the coach, she went in

0:11:300:11:34

looking at it better than when she

came out.

It came out very crumpled.

0:11:340:11:41

Kate Middleton had lace. It wouldn't

crumple so much. It draped better

0:11:410:11:46

when she got out. I seem to recall.

Well done.

The Financial Times. As a

0:11:460:11:56

geography graduate, I have a slight

issue with this. I have slight issue

0:11:560:12:03

with this story. Two extremes will

stop it is black and white, I'm

0:12:030:12:13

sorry. US freezes as Australia

fries. It talks about how places on

0:12:130:12:22

the other side of the world have

different weather. We know the point

0:12:220:12:25

they are making. But it is summer in

the southern hemisphere and the

0:12:250:12:34

northern hemisphere is in winter.

Leigh not many readers of the FT

0:12:340:12:40

would know that.

--A lot of readers

of the FT may not know that.

It is

0:12:400:12:50

-73 with windchill.

All they have

from Australia is the usual people

0:12:500:12:59

on the beach and why is this man

outside if he is so cold? You are

0:12:590:13:08

absolutely right Martine.

I thought

you were accusing me of pedantry. I

0:13:080:13:15

know the point they are making,

these are extremes. I struggle with

0:13:150:13:20

it, though. It is about the only

opinion I can fit in. That's it for

0:13:200:13:27

the papers. Tony, Caroline, thank

you for joining us. Coming up next

0:13:270:13:31

is the film review.
