This is BBC World News Today with me, Kirsty Lang. Media tycoon

:00:09.:00:12.

Rupert Murdoch denies ever using his power to influence policy. He

:00:12.:00:15.

says he's never asked for or received favours from any British

:00:15.:00:23.

Prime Minister, it was the politicians who sought him out.

have want to put it to bed once and for all, that that is a complete

:00:28.:00:30.

myth. Bad news for Britain - we're

:00:30.:00:33.

officially back in recession with a fall in construction blamed for the

:00:33.:00:35.

lack of growth. Norwegian mass murderer Anders

:01:11.:01:17.

that happened was his doing. Celebrity names are bankrolling the

:01:22.:01:27.

-- mind macro. Yesterday we had his son, now we

:01:27.:01:35.

had rip it at -- Rupert Murdoch are giving evidence. He was pretty

:01:35.:01:39.

bullish and denied that he used his babies to put pressure on

:01:40.:01:43.

successive British governments. He said it was natural for politicians

:01:43.:01:48.

to seek the support of newspaper Editors but he had never asked a

:01:48.:01:56.

British Prime Minister for anything. In the long running at Leveson

:01:56.:02:01.

Inquiry depress standards, this was the keenly awaited witness so far.

:02:01.:02:05.

The chairman and chief executive of News Corporation. I swear by

:02:05.:02:09.

Almighty God that the evidence I shall give a chubby the truth, the

:02:09.:02:14.

whole truth and nothing but the truth. Mr Murdoch, known for his

:02:14.:02:20.

strong views, appeared reticent about his decades as a powerful

:02:20.:02:25.

newspaper proprietor. I, in 10 years of power, never asked Mr

:02:25.:02:29.

Blair for anything, nor did I receive any favours. This afternoon,

:02:29.:02:35.

when he was asked about his wish to support the Conservatives, he said

:02:35.:02:38.

there were many key media matters he had not discussed with the new

:02:38.:02:43.

Government but the inquiry's QC pressed the point about his

:02:43.:02:51.

influence. There was always a political freeze on with your

:02:51.:03:00.

acquisitions. It was predictable. welcome that question because I

:03:00.:03:08.

want to put it to bed once and for all, that that is a complete myth.

:03:08.:03:16.

What is the myth? That I used the influence of the Sun or supposed

:03:16.:03:21.

political power to get favourable treatment. Meanwhile, the man who

:03:21.:03:27.

was the go-between has gone. Adam Smith described as the point of

:03:27.:03:30.

contact between the minister and the Murdoch family, bidding for

:03:30.:03:35.

control of the UK satellite broadcaster, BSkyB. Material

:03:35.:03:39.

released when James Murdoch gave evidence yesterday had included

:03:39.:03:43.

damning texts and e-mails indicating a Government bias

:03:43.:03:50.

towards News Corporation. Facing the House of Commons, Jeremy Hunt

:03:50.:03:55.

paid tribute to his special adviser but insisted he had acted with

:03:55.:04:03.

scrupulous fairness in his quasar a judicial role. Transcripts of

:04:03.:04:08.

conversations and text that we might special adviser, Adam Smith,

:04:08.:04:10.

added News Corporation representative have been alleged to

:04:10.:04:16.

indicate there was a back channel through which News Corporation were

:04:16.:04:22.

able to influence my decisions. This is category not the case.

:04:22.:04:27.

Mr Hunt needed any reminder that he remains under pressure, he had to

:04:27.:04:32.

endure this taunt. Doesn't it prove the theory that when posh boys are

:04:32.:04:38.

in trouble, they sack the servants. Words which echoed the theme

:04:38.:04:42.

sundered by the lead up the opposition minutes before at a

:04:42.:04:46.

highly charged session of Prime Minister's Questions. Her well his

:04:46.:04:50.

Culture Secretary remains in place, while he refuses to come clean on

:04:50.:04:55.

his and the chances meetings with Rupert Murdoch, the shadow of

:04:55.:04:58.

sleaze will Hanover this Government. When his ego and to realise that it

:04:58.:05:03.

is time to stop putting his cronies between the interests of the

:05:03.:05:08.

country? He called for a judicial inquiry and that is what I have set

:05:08.:05:12.

up. Whether it is the proper regulation of the press, cleaning

:05:12.:05:17.

our financial system, dealing with our debts, I don't duck my

:05:17.:05:21.

responsibilities. What a pity he can't live up to his. It is ironic

:05:21.:05:25.

that the political leaders have spent years trying to get close to

:05:25.:05:29.

Rupert Murdoch and his newspaper titles. Now that closeness is

:05:29.:05:34.

proving a major political problem. There will be more at the inquiry

:05:34.:05:40.

from Mr Murdoch on Thursday. I am joined by Michael White from

:05:40.:05:47.

the Guardian newspaper. What did you make of Mr Murdoch's statement

:05:47.:05:52.

that he never sought any favours from the Prime Minister? I was at

:05:52.:05:58.

the High Court in London all day. Within pie throwing distance of Mr

:05:58.:06:03.

Murdoch and I have never spent that much time in his company. He was

:06:03.:06:11.

fascinating. He was very mellow. He was 81, very sharp. I felt most of

:06:11.:06:17.

the time he was like a person that had been summoned by the local

:06:17.:06:27.
:06:27.:06:28.

chieftains to resolve a minor dispute. I did remember their names,

:06:28.:06:33.

I vaguely remember the lunch or the Chequers dinner with the Mrs

:06:33.:06:43.
:06:43.:06:44.

Thatcher. It is full of stuff like that. Some of it was quite funny.

:06:44.:06:49.

He was often quite funny. Did it seem as if he was not taking it

:06:49.:06:59.

entirely seriously? Possibly so. He was pretending to. At lunchtime, he

:06:59.:07:07.

said he was overheard to say let's get this stuff over whiff. We don't

:07:07.:07:14.

want to come back tomorrow. -- Bothel Withe. He said he is the

:07:14.:07:18.

controlling shareholder added is perfectly normal if you want to buy

:07:18.:07:24.

in the shares that you don't earn. He doesn't always think of the word

:07:24.:07:30.

monopoly and let it influence. The council, the QC, had a list of

:07:30.:07:34.

people who said it is all very well at you saying you don't have the

:07:34.:07:40.

influence, never asking for deals, it is more subtle than that. He

:07:40.:07:48.

listed a whole load of people. Tony Blair, Harry Evans, Paul Keating,

:07:48.:07:52.

ex-prime minister of Australia. Murdoch is the kind of guy you can

:07:52.:07:58.

do a deal with without ever having to say you have done a deal. He

:07:58.:08:06.

said Keating was a loud mouth. Don't take your word from him.

:08:06.:08:11.

there any interesting insights into recent British history? I am

:08:11.:08:15.

referring to the conversation he had with Gordon Brown when he was

:08:15.:08:20.

Prime Minister. You would get confused in my business at my age.

:08:20.:08:30.
:08:30.:08:31.

Don't we know all this? It was alleged that Brown had e-mailed him

:08:31.:08:37.

on the eve of his speech in 2009 before the election. He said they

:08:37.:08:41.

had a conversation and were talking more quietly than you and I are

:08:41.:08:50.

talking now. He was pretty cross. He said I will declare war on you.

:08:50.:08:54.

Brown has denied this but Murdoch is a pretty good winners and when

:08:54.:09:02.

he was asked about the baby, revealing that Fraser Brown had

:09:02.:09:09.

cystic fibrosis. He said it was all very well but Rebekah Brooks said

:09:09.:09:15.

how she had sensitively treated the incident and she was grateful. A

:09:15.:09:22.

polished performance. Now the other news. The head of

:09:22.:09:26.

Israel's Armed Forces has disagreed with his Prime Minister saying he

:09:26.:09:31.

does not think Iran will develop nuclear weapons. In direct

:09:31.:09:39.

contracts to a tougher statements by Binyamin Netanyahu, he said the

:09:39.:09:42.

rage in -- Iranian leadership was made up of irrational people who

:09:42.:09:51.

were not want to go the extra mile. US TV networks are saying that Newt

:09:51.:09:54.

Gingrich will end his Republican bid. He said he would suspend his

:09:54.:10:04.

campaign next week and thinks he -- Mitt Romney will win.

:10:04.:10:08.

Soldiers kidnapped by an Al-Qaeda linked group in Yemen have made a

:10:08.:10:14.

video plea for help. This video appears to show one of 85 captured

:10:14.:10:18.

soldiers saying they are in danger of being beheaded.

:10:18.:10:28.
:10:28.:10:28.

The son of the sacked Chinese... Has said of excessive spending be

:10:28.:10:34.

on the family needs. His mother is involved in the alleged murder of

:10:35.:10:42.

an English businessman. Kim Britton, we have the economic

:10:42.:10:49.

news. -- here in Britain. We are back in recession since the crash

:10:49.:10:55.

of 2008. A double dip has happened. David Cameron did little to hide

:10:55.:10:59.

his disappointment but said he would be sticking to the austerity

:10:59.:11:06.

plan. The cogs in the economic machine

:11:06.:11:13.

grind on that they could be going faster. GDP grows -- is the term

:11:13.:11:16.

for everything the economy produces. If it falls for six months, you get

:11:16.:11:26.

It is hard for the economy to move forward when shoppers are careful

:11:26.:11:31.

with their cash, squeezed by rapid rises in the cost of living.

:11:31.:11:36.

Everything is going up and wages are not. I have been on a freeze

:11:36.:11:44.

for four years and I'm struggling. The Asda boss knows customers have

:11:44.:11:49.

tightened their belts and doesn't expect it to change. A they are

:11:49.:11:52.

becoming more savvy in terms of how they are shopping. When they are

:11:52.:11:57.

filling up their car with fuel, they put round values in. That is

:11:57.:12:06.

how much money they have got to spend on fuel. Who is to blame? The

:12:06.:12:09.

Prime Minister and Labour my leader gave their views. Typical of this

:12:09.:12:14.

arrogant Prime Minister who tries to blame everyone else. The reality

:12:14.:12:19.

it is this is a recession made by him and the Chancellor in Downing

:12:19.:12:23.

Street. This is a tough and difficult situation that the

:12:23.:12:30.

economy is in the but the one thing we mustn't do, is to abandon public

:12:30.:12:32.

spending and deficit-reduction plans because the solution to a

:12:32.:12:38.

debt crisis cannot be more debt. The breakdown of the figures shows

:12:38.:12:42.

there was a 0.1% increase for service industries including retail

:12:42.:12:48.

but manufacturing output fell by 0.1%. Construction saw a big drop

:12:48.:12:53.

of 3% over the three-month period. To work out whether the apart --

:12:53.:12:56.

economy is growing, officials have to gather data from a range of

:12:56.:12:59.

different industries including construction. There has been

:12:59.:13:03.

criticism of the way they measure activity in this sector, with some

:13:04.:13:08.

claiming the figures are too volatile and don't reflect what is

:13:08.:13:12.

going on. The Bank of England says the construction numbers are

:13:12.:13:19.

perplexing. What does the man in charge of economic policy say? You

:13:19.:13:23.

launched growth strategy a year ago and now there is no growth. I have

:13:23.:13:26.

never disguised the fact that Britain faces a difficult economic

:13:26.:13:31.

situation. We have this debt crisis and they were built up over many

:13:31.:13:38.

years. If I had some magic wand i it would waive it and the British

:13:38.:13:43.

economy would spurting to growth. He ignored our warnings and a call

:13:43.:13:47.

for a plan for jobs and growth and families and businesses are paying

:13:47.:13:53.

the price. Many commentators thought the UK would avoid a slip

:13:53.:13:58.

back into recession but it has happened. They will now have to

:13:58.:14:04.

work out the implications. Hugh joins me now. When we hear the

:14:04.:14:08.

words, double dip, we assume it is going to be as bad as last time. Is

:14:08.:14:18.
:14:18.:14:20.

it? Definitely not. There was a sharp drop in output for the UK. We

:14:20.:14:27.

are talking about a small percentage point. The underlying

:14:27.:14:30.

picture is a basically flat because you have a dispute over

:14:30.:14:36.

construction and get revisions. Bumping along, that doesn't help in

:14:36.:14:40.

the process of job creation and it is not much consolation to anyone

:14:40.:14:45.

out there looking for a job if they are struggling with the economy as

:14:45.:14:49.

it is. I don't think it will be lurching back to what it was years

:14:49.:14:54.

ago. Why is Britain can -- in comparison to the rest of Europe

:14:54.:14:59.

and America? American growth has been strong and that plays into the

:14:59.:15:04.

old US elections situation. President Obama is happy about that.

:15:04.:15:09.

They have to stop their austerity programme in the US and that is

:15:09.:15:14.

another matter altogether. The eurozone is forecast on a European

:15:14.:15:18.

Commission to go into recession and there was negative output at the

:15:18.:15:24.

end of last year. The UK it is by no means alone and a witness in the

:15:24.:15:28.

eurozone hits the UK because of the trading links. The UK does have

:15:28.:15:33.

that argument to make. The Government says it is not the only

:15:33.:15:38.

one that many critics will say it is the scale of the budget cuts

:15:38.:15:48.
:15:48.:15:49.

No sign of any change from veered Chancellor of the Exchequer. He is

:15:49.:15:55.

very much sticking to the idea that he has to cut debt or borrowing.

:15:55.:16:00.

You have to hope that growth will pick up. Thank you.

:16:00.:16:05.

The Norwegian mass killer Anders Breivik has told his trial in Oslo

:16:05.:16:08.

that a psychiatric report that declared in insane was full of lies.

:16:08.:16:13.

It is now up to the court to decide whether he is criminally insane.

:16:13.:16:18.

Anders Breivik, who admits killing 77 people last July, insists he is

:16:18.:16:26.

of sound mind. Anders Breivik came to court aiming to discredit the

:16:26.:16:30.

psychiatrist who had declared him insane. He has accused them of

:16:30.:16:37.

lying. The court also heard Anders Breivik makes statements that may

:16:37.:16:39.

have strengthened the psychiatrist's conclusion. He

:16:39.:16:46.

talked about people who should be killed in Norway. He said 98 or 99%

:16:46.:16:51.

of the population, innocent civilians, but a small elite,

:16:51.:16:55.

working for a multi- cultural goals are legitimate targets. He went on

:16:55.:17:01.

to say, after the Second World War, 15 leading Nazi sympathisers and

:17:01.:17:06.

others were sent to psychiatric hospitals for ideological reasons.

:17:06.:17:11.

This is Norway's dirty secret. Experts are listening to this today

:17:11.:17:17.

believe it reveals more about Anders Breivik's own state of mind.

:17:17.:17:24.

What he said today is the closest I have ever heard from him that he

:17:24.:17:31.

might have paranoid delusions about the way he interprets the reality

:17:32.:17:38.

around him. To it seems he may have a history of psychiatric problems.

:17:38.:17:44.

In the 1980s, he and his family lived here in Oslo. When he was

:17:44.:17:47.

just four years old, they are reported to have spent weeks in

:17:47.:17:53.

this special centre of Psychiatry for children. If ultimately the

:17:53.:17:57.

court house here does decide that he is insane, but would mean he

:17:57.:18:00.

would spend time in a secure or psychiatric ward. For many

:18:00.:18:04.

Norwegians, but would not be right. They want to see him punished in

:18:04.:18:14.

prison, not treated for an illness. The inquest into the death of a

:18:14.:18:17.

British intelligence officer found dead inside a padlocked sports bike

:18:17.:18:22.

has heard from a former landlady. In a written statement, she told

:18:22.:18:30.

the inquest she had once and Gareth Williams tied to his own bed.

:18:31.:18:34.

Gareth Williams, the intelligence officer whose body was found in a

:18:34.:18:38.

bike. He was described as a very private person. He spent ten years

:18:38.:18:44.

living in this house while working at GCHQ. His former landlady

:18:44.:18:49.

describes hearing him cry for help at 1:30am one morning. She and her

:18:49.:18:53.

husband found him alone in his underwear, embarrassed with his

:18:53.:18:58.

wrists tied to the bed. My husband said what are you doing. He said he

:18:58.:19:03.

just wanted to see if he could get free. On 23rd August, 2010, police

:19:03.:19:07.

found his body in the bath tub of his London flat, near his new

:19:07.:19:12.

workplace at MI6. He was curled up in the bag in a foetal position,

:19:12.:19:16.

with the keys underneath them. The bike was locked on the outside,

:19:16.:19:19.

with police believing someone else was involved. Today, the inquest

:19:20.:19:24.

heard from a police officer in charge of liaising with the

:19:24.:19:27.

intelligence agencies. He said his inquiries had found no evidence

:19:27.:19:32.

that Gareth Williams's death was linked to his work. This afternoon,

:19:32.:19:37.

former colleagues gave their evidence. His line manager said in

:19:37.:19:41.

hindsight, he would have done more to try and establish why Gareth

:19:41.:19:44.

Williams missed one week of meetings and appointments before

:19:44.:19:49.

police were finally contacted. They give their evidence behind a screen

:19:49.:19:53.

to protect their identity. Lawyers from his family also question why

:19:53.:19:57.

spies have not signed witness statements and whether commute --

:19:57.:20:01.

computer material had been secured before police took possession. More

:20:01.:20:09.

evidence from former colleagues is expected to take place tomorrow.

:20:09.:20:13.

The war which ripped apart the West African state of Sierra Leone in

:20:13.:20:16.

the 1990s was one of the most brutal conflicts of modern time

:20:16.:20:21.

tens of thousands of civilians were raped, murdered and mutilated.

:20:21.:20:24.

Giles foods were stolen a small boys were forced to become soldiers.

:20:24.:20:28.

Tomorrow, an international court in the Hague will deliver its verdict

:20:28.:20:32.

on a man many believe was responsible for that mayhem,

:20:32.:20:39.

Charles Taylor, the former president of neighbouring Liberia.

:20:39.:20:44.

A decade of war and the juice Sierra Leone to a poverty it has

:20:44.:20:48.

not escaped. In the heart of Freetown, children scavenge in a

:20:48.:20:53.

rubbish dump for bits of plastic they might sell for pennies. This

:20:53.:20:56.

patch of land is still known here as the amputee camp. The camp

:20:56.:21:01.

itself is long gone. In the 1990s, it was home to attempted settlement

:21:02.:21:06.

of men women and children who had their limbs severed by machete or

:21:06.:21:12.

axe. This was the signature atrocity of the rebel army, known

:21:12.:21:20.

as the Revolutionary United Front. The stamped on my foot. I was cut

:21:20.:21:28.

with an axe. They chop it off. Not in one blow. About five or six

:21:28.:21:35.

times. He says he had heard Charles Taylor on the radio threatening to

:21:35.:21:42.

make Sierra Leone the taste the bitterness of war. This is my stone

:21:42.:21:48.

conviction, that everything that happened here was Charles Taylor's

:21:48.:21:54.

doing. Charles Taylor was President of Liberia. He has been on trial in

:21:54.:21:58.

the Hague for the last four years, accused of arming, funding and

:21:58.:22:02.

directing the RUF. The indictment charges him with terrorising

:22:02.:22:06.

civilians, unlawful killings, sexual violence, abductions and the

:22:06.:22:14.

use of child soldiers. At Yonibana, the memory of war is a roar. Rebels

:22:14.:22:17.

swept through here in a frenzy of burning and looting. There is no

:22:17.:22:23.

economy here to speak of. 11 and a mix of palm oil by a process

:22:23.:22:30.

unchanged for hundreds of years. It is essentially Arran age technology.

:22:30.:22:34.

They are at last rebuilding of the water supply. When it is finished,

:22:34.:22:38.

it will bring Yonibana back to where it was in the 1970s. A

:22:38.:22:45.

measure of how the war retarded progress here. But change is coming

:22:45.:22:49.

at last and it is the Chinese, ever hungry for natural resources, who

:22:49.:22:53.

will bring it. Chinese money is about to put a rubber plantation

:22:53.:22:59.

here, and fast pineapple groves and rice fields. Back in Freetown,

:22:59.:23:04.

there is more evidence of Chinese lead changed. We ran into a camera

:23:04.:23:08.

shy technician, supervising a road- building project. It is changing

:23:08.:23:15.

lives here. We're so happy to welcome them. They are training as.

:23:15.:23:20.

And so glad to work with them. They are good people. One to be trained

:23:20.:23:26.

you as? Be trained to me. The wheels of economic activity are

:23:26.:23:31.

working again. There are vast untapped resources here. The red

Today I am very proud, along with my colleagues here to be announcing

planetary resources. The vision of planetary resources is to make the

resources of space available to humanity, both in space and here on

Many scientists are sceptical that the company, which needs to raise

resources dwindling, backers of the plan say they have to try.

If they fail, they can make it into a movie.

Rupert Murdoch has told a British inquiry into media ethics that he

has never asked a prime Minister for anything. Mr Murdoch said he

wanted to end what he called the method that he had used the power

of one of his British newspapers to gain favourable treatment.

The that is all from us today. Next Hello there. We have had a wet and

many of us. We will have some heavy showers and more persistent rain.

It is due to this low. It is moving its way northwards and we have a

weather front sitting across parts of eastern Scotland and northern

England as we start their stay morning. Here, cloudy skies with

some persistent rain and further south by the afternoon, we have

some showers developing. Yet again, these are likely to be frequent,

heavy with some thunderstorms mixed in. When you get the showers,

:27:33.:27:36.

temperatures will dip away, but if you are in between the downpours

:27:36.:27:41.

and you get some sunshine, we could see temperatures of around 12 to 13
