Hello and welcome to our look ahead

to what the the papers will be

0:00:200:00:23

bringing us tomorrow.

0:00:230:00:24

With me is the political

commentator Daisy McAndrew

0:00:240:00:34

and Chief Political Correspondent

at the Daily Telegraph,

0:00:350:00:39

Christopher Hope.

0:00:400:00:43

Many of tomorrow's front

pages are already in.

0:00:430:00:46

The Guardian's main story

0:00:460:00:47

is the backlash following the equal

pay report at the BBC in which it

0:00:470:00:51

said there was no evidence

of "gender bias" in pay decisions

0:00:510:00:54

by the corporation.

0:00:540:00:55

The Metro also has the same story,

0:00:550:00:57

saying female staff have accused

bosses of a whitewash

0:00:570:00:59

after the report found only a 6.8%

discrepancy on average earnings

0:00:590:01:01

between men and women.

0:01:020:01:03

The Times writes that housing

developers face losing

0:01:030:01:04

the right to build on land

if they fail to hit construction

0:01:040:01:07

targets, under new Government plans.

0:01:070:01:12

The Telegraph leads with comments

0:01:120:01:14

by the Government's former chief

scientist that German

0:01:140:01:16

car manufacturers have

'blood' on their hands

0:01:160:01:17

following the emissions scandal.

0:01:170:01:18

The paper also has a photo

of the Duchess of Cambridge

0:01:180:01:21

on her royal tour with

Prince William to Sweden.

0:01:210:01:29

The Financial Times says Amazon

is to enter into the US

0:01:290:01:32

health care market which could,

the paper says, reduce costs

0:01:320:01:34

for "all Americans."

0:01:340:01:35

The paper also headlines that the UK

has hit its cap on skilled visas

0:01:350:01:38

for non-EU workers for two months

in a row, for the first time.

0:01:380:01:42

And The Mirror quotes a new report

which says thousands

0:01:420:01:45

of cancer patients die in Britain

due to a lack of funding,

0:01:450:01:47

with some of the worst

survival rates than five

0:01:470:01:50

of the EU's largest nations.

0:01:500:02:00

Cracking on with the metro, take us

to the farce and the furious.

This

0:02:010:02:06

is about the BBC's gender pay

report, you won't be surprised, many

0:02:060:02:11

are saying, in particular female

presenters, are saying it was a

0:02:110:02:16

whitewash, that it is not fully

transparent, they say that PwC he

0:02:160:02:22

did the report have simply handed

over the report that the BBC wanted.

0:02:220:02:30

This is about women not pay the same

as men, it looks navel-gazing from

0:02:300:02:39

the outside looking in. Every BBC

Billiton has been leading with this

0:02:390:02:50

story, which... It does feel a bit

awkward, it feels we are airing the

0:02:500:02:54

dirty linen in public. Also the BBC

saying there is no market in news

0:02:540:03:04

where there is a market in

entertainment and that is why people

0:03:040:03:08

like Chris Evans are on millions

compared to others, but that is not

0:03:080:03:12

true, there is a market in news, a

large market between the different

0:03:120:03:16

broadcaster.

But it is less now than

it was, is the argument. Few options

0:03:160:03:23

for television news...

There is

always a market, this is about a

0:03:230:03:26

report showing 7% difference between

men and women, and it is a bit of

0:03:260:03:33

navel-gazing. Lots of news

provisions, BBC as a rival, so it is

0:03:330:03:42

a bit of a punchbag. People care

about the BBC as well, the BBC

0:03:420:03:46

matters. So, it is something of a

totem. The BBC loves to have a

0:03:460:03:58

crisis, every three years, this

place goes into firm and, when this

0:03:580:04:02

happens, you have interviewers who

are badgering their bosses for more

0:04:020:04:07

pay, interviewing bosses on air

about wanting more pay! It is

0:04:070:04:09

bonkers. Collective nervous

breakdown.

Appearance by the bigwigs

0:04:090:04:21

and by Carrie Gracie, the journalist

who sparked this off in some ways.

0:04:210:04:30

The only thing I would question,

every three years?

There was a

0:04:300:04:38

backlash, the pay review found there

was no gender bias, according

0:04:380:04:51

to PwC, men paid well before 2010

are now doing better in proportion

0:04:540:04:57

to younger women. That's why they

are giving these pay rises to 200

0:04:570:05:05

people, of whom the majority are...

Men!

The second tranche of pay, only

0:05:050:05:14

one third of those presenters are

women, two thirds are men. So you

0:05:140:05:18

can certainly see a big gap. A big

gap in the Times coverage where it

0:05:180:05:25

says the PwC

0:05:250:05:35

INAUDIBLE

I knew that we would enjoy this one.

0:05:510:05:58

Rest assured, I am not on any list!

Perhaps you should be!

LAUGHTER.

0:05:580:06:03

My belief is... And I think I am

right, actually, very few presenters

0:06:030:06:10

bring audience with them, it is the

programme and the content that

0:06:100:06:15

maintains the loyalty of the

audience, many presenters turn

0:06:150:06:20

people off, turn viewers or

listeners off because they do not

0:06:200:06:23

like their style but very few when

they move from BBC to ITN actually

0:06:230:06:27

take the audience with them, so you

wonder what on earth they are being

0:06:270:06:31

paid for!

You mentioned the Times,

let's show the coverage as well, BBC

0:06:310:06:36

pay review will give men more rises

than women, this is a reference to

0:06:360:06:40

what Lord Hall has said about all

the adjustments.

The women are

0:06:400:06:48

getting a greater pay rise than the

men but by volume... Start paying

0:06:480:06:53

people by target, and soon... It

becomes like Russia, tractor

0:06:530:06:59

production... There is a market for

people doing a certain job, the

0:06:590:07:04

damages, if that is what you end up

paying.

Whole thing is an absolute

0:07:040:07:07

mess. The alternative, six

presenters being told that they will

0:07:070:07:13

take a pay cut, I don't think that

is the way to do it, I think that is

0:07:130:07:18

pretty unfair, clearly some of them

are earning silly money. Some

0:07:180:07:22

months, seems rather random.

Perhaps

they will go into programme making.

0:07:220:07:29

Where will they come from, these pay

rises.

The times, changing stories,

0:07:290:07:34

ugly truth of socialism laid bare by

researchers, says whom?

This is

0:07:340:07:39

literally saying that socialists are

physically less attractive than

0:07:390:07:46

right-wing people... It has been

backed up by research, so this is

0:07:460:07:52

research that shows attractive

people tend to do better in life,

0:07:520:07:58

largely because people interact with

them differently, this can leave

0:07:580:08:00

them with a blind spot when it comes

to others hardship. And result in

0:08:000:08:04

the good-looking being less likely

to back redistributive taxes and

0:08:040:08:09

more likely to be Tories. And they

have done this huge amount of

0:08:090:08:15

research, involving more than 2000

people, monitoring, working out how

0:08:150:08:20

attractive they are and what

corresponding political views are.

0:08:200:08:23

And they are claiming, ugly people

become socialists. It is brilliant.

0:08:230:08:31

What do we think?

I think it is

true(!)

as a Tory...!

Telegraph

0:08:310:08:39

readership, I think... The Guardian

readers, generally wonderful

0:08:390:08:46

looking...

Socialists more likely to

be physically weak, that is a whole

0:08:460:08:53

different argument.

I am going to

leave that there are. Not comment on

0:08:530:08:58

it at all, just as we did with the

first story we did. Telegraph is...

0:08:580:09:05

This is interesting, inheritance tax

gifting and the limit for it may be

0:09:050:09:12

lifted, we are told.

Almost

legitimising what is happening a

0:09:120:09:19

lot, parents, grandparents giving

money to their children to get onto

0:09:190:09:21

the housing market, almost saying,

the bank of mum and dad is actually

0:09:210:09:26

happening, rather than an idea that

it is happening. Trickle-down

0:09:260:09:31

economics. It is what is going on

out there.

The trouble with the

0:09:310:09:40

story is it plays to a certain

audience, very many people will

0:09:400:09:44

never be in a position to inherit

money, whenever, from their parents,

0:09:440:09:50

because their parents simply do not

have the money. The problem with

0:09:500:09:53

inheritance tax, it is not a fair

tax, it infringes on fairness. This

0:09:530:09:57

idea that it is to help kids get on

the housing market, the average age

0:09:570:10:02

of someone who gets inheritance is

61, this is not kids getting onto

0:10:020:10:06

the housing market.

Quite an old age

to get on. And you can already get

0:10:060:10:14

850,000. It is not a small amount of

money. So it is not a great policy

0:10:140:10:25

but it is certainly preaching to a

certain voter.

I was going to

0:10:250:10:32

suggest that might be why...

0:10:320:10:36

Let's move onto one that I know you

both... Hesitate to use the word

0:10:400:10:44

fixated... But, actually, I won't

hesitate, you were both fixated on

0:10:440:10:50

this earlier, and Frankie, why not.

The big story of tomorrow.

This

0:10:500:10:56

killer whale, apparently, can speak

a few words of English.

Hilariously,

0:10:560:11:05

it is in France. Perhaps getting

into Britain.

Apparently he can say

0:11:050:11:12

hello, he can count to three, and he

can say goodbye. I know that we have

0:11:120:11:21

had a lot of stories about Wales

being able to communicate with

0:11:210:11:26

dolphins, I don't know if this is

the first English speaking wail. --

0:11:260:11:30

whales. We try to hear it but we did

not.

When Lassie comes along and she

0:11:300:11:42

barks three times and they find the

child... This is a little bit more

0:11:420:11:47

than that.

The creatures are able to

copy unfamiliar sounds produced by

0:11:470:11:54

other orca Wales, including a sound

similar to blowing a rose Brit.

0:11:540:12:00

Hello, 1-2, and bye bye! It is

incredible.

It is a killer whale. --

0:12:000:12:06

blowing a raspberry. Being looked

after in Antibes. We will

0:12:060:12:14

momentarily return to a cartoon, not

sure where we will show you it. I

0:12:140:12:25

think we may be able to show it,

this is from the Matt cartoon.

0:12:250:12:33

Genius, first year anniversary with

the newspaper this year, we are

0:12:330:12:36

proud to have in there, this is,

what can I say, it is a BBC boss, in

0:12:360:12:42

the Blue Planet office, with a

starfish...

0:12:420:12:47

Of course, starfish turn into female

starfish as they get older, had to

0:12:520:12:56

check that one. We checked it

earlier, it is hilarious, combining

0:12:560:13:00

lots of good ideas!

He is so clever.

Time is up. Thank you very much

0:13:000:13:10

indeed. That is it for the papers

tonight. Don't forget, you can see

0:13:100:13:14

the front pages online, on the BBC

news website.

0:13:140:13:20

If you miss the papers any evening,

you can watch it on the eye player,

0:13:220:13:28

thank you very much.
