hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be ha l 1..»-'.-» “yea? "we a 5 «f: raga-rm? rafi morning. high pressure slips away by monday, low pressure starts to take charge but the centre of the low is hello. this is bbc news with lukwesa burak. quite a way to the north of the uk. that means that the weather system will be quite weak as they push we'll be taking a look at tomorrow morning's papers in a moment — south eastwards. patchy outbreaks of rain across northern and western first the headlines. tributes pour in forjack charlton — areas, not much in a way of rain for who played in england's world cup south—east scotland, down the winning football team and managed eastern side of england, probably the republic of ireland — for the midlands in central and southern england should say largely after his death at the age of 85. open air theatres, live dry. more cloud around an music venues and swimming pools re—opened today — in the latest easing temperatures easing across the north of the lockdown in england. west through tuesday and wednesday a further low pressure system tracking from the north—west these look labour calls for the uk government pretty wea k. to clarify its position from the north—west these look pretty weak. so i think we can on face coverings — expect quite a bit of cloud in the after the prime minister said a ‘stricter‘ approach week ahead. there will be some was needed in england. patches of rain around at times, bosnia has marked the 25th anniversary particularly across north—western of the srebrenica massacre — in which 8000 bosnian muslim men areas, but there probably won't be too much in the way of rain, and boys were murdered. temperatures are continuing to run a former islamic state group into the low 20s for the most part. 00:00:51,257 --> 4294966103:13:29,430 that's your weather. fighter from britain dies in the notorious hasakah prison, where many is fighters are held.
10:31 pm
hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are martin lipton, who's the chief sports reporter at the sun — and the author and journalist yasmin alibhai—brown. .. lovely to see you both. tomorrow's front pages... starting with. .. the sunday telegraph reports that taxes will be cut next year under government plans for what it's calling a ‘post—brexit economic revolution‘. and like almost all of tomorrow's papers, has tributes to footballer jack charlton on the front page. the sunday times writes that the home secretary fears
10:32 pm
"cultural sensitivities" prevented police from tackling illegal sweatshops in britain's fast—fashion industry. the observer leads on a story from a leaked government document apparently showing the 20 councils most at risk of local lockdowns due to the coronavirus. the sunday mirror reports that police looking for madeleine mccann have searched three wells in portugal close to where the prime suspect lived. and the mail on sunday says ministers fear china could unleash an online attack on britain as tensions increase between london and beijing. so let's begin... fantastic to see you both. we are going to start off with the front page of the observer. it is this lockdown list we are waiting for. we
10:33 pm
have known ever since it happened in leicester, i live in ealing, there has been a simmering news that ealing might go that way too. i was interested. there were some pieces i would never have expected like sheffield —— places. there doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason as to peaksin seem to be any rhyme or reason as to peaks in certain localities or towns. this is a leaked report, i don't know what it was based on. i think that is the future, instead of oui’ think that is the future, instead of our whole national lockdown, they will be watching places where numbers are rising. i have to say this, i went to the supermarket today, our local supermarket, nobody was wearing a mask, none of the workers were wearing a mask and it was really frightening, actually.
10:34 pm
martin, when we look at what the observer is saying, they do seem to point to the area is likely to make that list being england's most deprived and ethnically mixed areas. yes, yasmin mentions kirklees. but it is also other areas with a high concentration of asian people. i suspect this is the issue, lest we know has a large indian population or indian background population, and for cultural reasons and purely economic reasons, these are going to be significantly at risk. we know it is that they be ame population in the country seems to be more vulnerable to covid—19 anyway. these factors come together. this is a leaked report, classified document, but i don't think we should be
10:35 pm
surprised. but we should be extremely worried that there could be significant localised outbreaks where we need to take extra precautions. yasmin, you wanted to get in there. there are exceptions. sheffield i think it's much more of a wide area, but with huge deprivation. so there is a sort of economic factor as well. from some of the research that has come through, the most deprived, whoever they are, and asian people in particular and black people and filipinos are much more vulnerable. soi filipinos are much more vulnerable. so i hope we do the right thing and the response is appropriate. my fear is that it raises yet more ugliness in our society. i hope that doesn't happen. but i think it is the only sensible way to go. martin, could you take is to the front page of the
10:36 pm
sunday telegraph? soon act plans budget tax cuts to save the economy by two set they have an interview that says —— by two set they have an interview that says -- according to the interview, taxes will be slashed. it says he is going to introduce sweeping tax cuts and overhaul the planning laws. ports that will have a specific status that means they won't have to pay tax until goods are moved on. this is part of a range of are moved on. this is part of a range of measures. are moved on. this is part of a range of measures. a lot of elements to it, including new guidelines for immigration for health care, health and care workers from pity patel and and care workers from pity patel and a major rock between liz truss and dominic cummings appears to have put
10:37 pm
the river on les's knuckles over her mid week comments on issues around the border. there is the suggestion there is going to be tax cuts and other things to try to boost the economy, rather than, as many appearances back, the need for tax rises to pay the whole them at huge cost of trying to keep the country going undera cost of trying to keep the country going under a covid—19. cost of trying to keep the country going under a covid-19. we are any deep recession, armoury?” going under a covid-19. we are any deep recession, armoury? ithink this is the telegraph deciding what its own manifesto is for the country. the telegraph has always pushed for tax cuts for those who we re pushed for tax cuts for those who were well off. i would be very prepared to pay more tax because we are ina prepared to pay more tax because we are in a terrible financial and medical crisis. what is always there in the middle of it all is dominic
10:38 pm
cummings, isn't it? always in the stories, you see our own thomas cromwell ticking off. this is an unelected man accountable to no one. how dare he take of an elected member of parliament who happens to bea member of parliament who happens to be a minister? there is always this cummings speaker in there somewhere. from the text we have got you on the front page, we don't know the inside pages saying, mr cummings is mentioned here specifically, but let's stay with that from page and look at this plea by ministers that we start using trains and buses. martin, would you be confident? do you use public transport? i've only usedit you use public transport? i've only used it once in the last four months andl used it once in the last four months and i was a few weekends ago, i went into town with my daughter to go out shopping trip when the shops reopened. and it was going to oxford street and such places. it was like it was nine o'clock on a sunday morning or even earlier. it was
10:39 pm
almost a desolate, ghost town. and the chain we went on from where i am into town was partly empty. from some point we have to get back to some point we have to get back to some kind of normality. this will be pa rt of some kind of normality. this will be part of people feeling more comfortable — — part of people feeling more comfortable —— a signal society that we are going back to where we need to be for obvious economic reasons. saying that, i would wear a mask. unquestionably, no doubt about it. evenif unquestionably, no doubt about it. even if i wasn't mandated to, i think it is essential when you use public transport anything people will have to accept that as part of out will have to accept that as part of our new will have to accept that as part of our new reality. yasmin. that is why is it. any use of the market today, andi is it. any use of the market today, and i complain, so people were coping, talking very loudly —— and a huge supermarket today. —— i complain. people were coughing and
10:40 pm
talking. i complain to the manager. she didn't know. still getting brutalities every day. people are getting the impression everything is 0k getting the impression everything is ok now —— fatalities. we need proper protection, testing. look what happened with the four pubs opened up, they immediately had to close them. what i worry about the telegraph thing is, workers will be told to go and take public transport and put their own lives at risk again. way are nowhere near ready for this. listen to the front page of the mail on sunday. it appears there is a threat of a cyber 9/11 from china. understated. we are going to go into all—out war with china. the idea is there is fear in
10:41 pm
the mail on sunday, china will unleash a devastating attack, dubbed this cyber 911. there is a perfect storm brewing, the situation in hong kong, a significant issue without question. the huawei 5g network been taken question. the huawei 5g network been ta ken away, question. the huawei 5g network been taken away, the license. and the ongoing covid—19 issues. this is tied into the cyber attack which took place in australia a week or so ago. some might wonderwhetherjust two plus two equals five, we will see. clearly there are issues between the uk government and the chinese government. also, in this piece, it quotes steve bannon, not always necessarily the perfect person to talk to about this, claiming there has been a huge strain and a series of chinese scientist trying to cross to work to
10:42 pm
this —— work in the states. they would say that, when the. interest, there is some reason. may could i ta ke there is some reason. may could i take to the front page of this in the a related story. a related story, racism fears let sweatshops go on track. maybe there was a relu cta nce go on track. maybe there was a reluctance to go and do the right thing by the local authority, by others, but we knew about this, the financial times that a piece about this three years ago i think up four yea rs this three years ago i think up four years ago, a detailed piece. nothing was done. i want to know what keith knew. more important than the fear of racism, all communities, families, individuals and nations keep secrets and lies. the kind of
10:43 pm
pulled n and protect each other. that, i think, pulled n and protect each other. that, ithink, is more pulled n and protect each other. that, i think, is more likely because for why nothing was done. many of the exploited workers were issuing themselves or immigrants. it issuing themselves or immigrants. it is an open secret. this is going on, satanic factories are all over our country and all of them are run by asians, but i think in the case of leicester, there was a reluctance to talk about it, as much as a relu cta nce talk about it, as much as a reluctance to intervene. margin, we haven't got the front page of the sun yet, but we will look at the picture on the front page of the independent —— martin. farewell to a world cup winner. i have been hearing so much about jack charlton being a gentle giant. he wasn't gentle on the pitch, he was a hard as nails northumberland centre happy would kick anything that moves, that was hisjob on the pitch. —— centre
10:44 pm
half. hugely popular as a man, footballer, manager. more importantly, as a human being. in ireland in particular, a sense of a real sadness. he took that team to the world cup in 1990 and 1994. some incredible wins getting to the last eight in1990. incredible wins getting to the last eight in 1990. beating ashley in the opening games are then played in 1994. -- opening games are then played in 1994. —— beating italy. in the 11 men that won the world cup for england, with his passing, only five of those players are still alive of the 11. it is a group of sporting legends who are diminishing with sad rapidity. there is a lot of laughter about jack charlton. he brought some fantastic stories, but also a large degree of sadness, he has died to
10:45 pm
rape old age of 85. thank you for this edition of the papers —— the ripe old age. yasmin and martin will both be back at 11.30 for another look at the papers. goodbye for now. theme music. welcome to click. i hope you're doing ok. last week lara ventured into her garden. this week we've both been let loose into the outside world. how was it for you?
10:46 pm
it's great. i've been on an electric bike, and managed to not fall off, unlike the last time. i have to say, i really enjoyed filming outside again. anyway, as we start to move toward some sense of normality, one of the things that was delayed during lockdown was nonemergency surgery. in england they had to free up beds for covid—19 patients, and that meant the delay of surgery. that means people waiting for things likejoint replacements have been left in pain and the nhs has been left with a huge backlog of surgeries which could reach 10 million by christmas. so how is that going to happen, and what can people do while they are waiting? trying to be the fittest old—age pensioner in the country. 80—year—old brian lewis has been waiting for a hip replacement in his home near manchester since the lockdown began.
10:47 pm
like millions of others, brian was on the list for elective surgery before coronavirus, but, since march, everything is on hold. he could cope with the pain for a few months and has been doing zoom calls with his physiotherapist, but now is finding it very difficult. it has completely gone from here to there, the pain used to be in the hip and now it is the whole leg, i have these muscles in my leg that can move, i have always been a very fit guy, like, you know, but... this excruciating pain. i have reached the stage now where the deterioration has been so great, and the last three weeks i have been put onto a stick. doctors around the country are looking at ways they can remotely assist the thousands of patients that are waiting forjoint surgeries. this includes the creation of new apps and tools that can monitor them in new and detailed ways. welcome to our lab. fantastic. whoever you are, wherever you are.
10:48 pm
this free app provides digital access to some of the orthopaedic therapies a patient could expect to have in person. downloading this app is a great way to make recovery from your surgery. it's part of a service called my recovery that allows surgeons to monitor their patients at home. the coronavirus pandemic has accelerated the team's work to design more advanced ways to generate useful patient data for doctors. these are infrared cameras, and they are all tracking, triangulating off of these dots. so these are typically used in the computer game industry or the film industry. using datasets from analysis labs around the world, they are training algorithms on millions of data points to create a new camera system that could one day be used with a simple smartphone camera connected to the internet. this would recreate the sophistication of a fully fledged gait analysis lab in anyone's pocket, enabling a surgeon to have the ability to confidently assess a range of motion in the patient‘s knee post surgery without anyone
10:49 pm
having to leave home. because of the vast amounts of training the algorithm has gone through, it can accurately identify the anatomy and range of movement to a degree similar to wearing a morph suit in an expensive gait lab. we are particularly interested in human motion capture, so we've taken lots of inspiration from the gaming world. what we're doing is a very accurate version of this using artificial intelligence to accurately measure joint function. so, for a surgeon, can this technology, through a smartphone camera, tell a surgeon if that patient's leg is straight after surgery? one of the hospitals advocating the use of these tools is in wrightington. birthplace of the modern hip replacement, the team here want to see more daycare surgeries to shorten the time people spend in hospital and help clear the backlog. there is an app in development, a specific version of the my recovery app, to support the day case patients.
10:50 pm
you can get a lot of information just by talking but in some cases you have to have a lot of examination, some system to be able to measure the range of movement of a joint accurately, which would be of benefit. artificial intelligence could be used in other ways to clear the backlog of cases. c2 ai, an approved user of the nhs dataset, is aiming to prioritise patients based on their operative risk and physiology in order to rank them in order of priority. they have identified 14 key variables that correlate the risk of mortality and will be able to look at the whole country's surgical backlog at once. if you had a patient, would some people feel neglected if ai is doing this? i think people would want to know there is a logic to it, and if they are waiting behind people it is because they have a greater need. rather than being done in an inefficient manner, it is being done with a reason. there are large numbers of people on the list, with comorbidities, for example, which might mean they
10:51 pm
are at higher risk. artificial intelligence could be used to scan that data and come up with a list of patients that fit a certain category, a certain priority, rather than, you know, clerks having to go through that, or, indeed, clinicians having to go through all that data to try and prioritise patients. i think the algorithm could be more sensitive and useful than somebody, because they will do the pain thing, you know, one to ten, the old—fashioned thing. whereas the algorithm can take so many other things into account that a human being can't take into account. brian and millions of other patients who signed up to elective surgery still have many months to wait, but using patient data and powerful computing systems can help the process and get them in and out of hospital faster. here in the uk, things are opening up. but we are still being told to only get public transport when it is essential. and that has led to a surge
10:52 pm
in sales of e—bikes. the leap has been unprecedented. in may, as an example, we sold more bikes than we did in the entire year in 2018. a decent e—bike can easily cost well over £1000. and there are hundreds of brands to choose from. but the vast majority of them run on tech from just one manufacturer. the number of bosch—powered electric bikes in the uk would be somewhere between 60 and 80%. but the big difference between e—bikes is how they are powered. some have hub drive motors which track your pedal rotations and power the bike's wheels. today, though, i am using an even smarter crank drive bike. this uses a torque sensor to respond to how hard i press the pedals, i've got my high—vis, i've got my hat and i have my bike — let's go. wow — i can feel the power.
10:53 pm
this suddenly feels so light, i can't believe i am going uphill. hitting 15.5 miles per hour — that is the legal speed limit for e—bikes in the uk — was pretty effortless, too. some countries do have higher speed limits for pedal assist bikes, but if you've seen cyclists putting in zero legwork at all, they are likely to be using a throttle system. these are less common and in most eu countries you need special registration and insurance to ride them legally. i was excited about the fact that this could go fast but i didn't think i would have the confidence to do it. actually, once i got going, the weight of it made me feel so much more confident. why do they have to speed limit it? but all this comes a price tag. £4706 — pretty shocking, really. spencer has been looking at a far cheaper solution.
10:54 pm
spencer: you might like the idea of a e—bike, but you may only have a perfectly nice bike already. the good news is you can retrofit your bike to make it electric using a conversion kit like this. switch is a new front wheel with a 250—watt motor in the middle. it also comes with a power pack and a pedal sensor. this isn't cheap, but it is cheaper than an e—bike, and the price you pay is also your time, which will be dependent on how confident you are at taking off wheels, tyres and brake discs. if you think you are going to get stuck then you can pre—book a support video call. obviously i only called them to demonstrate the service, and not because i am a completely clueless dingbat. switch say they will make these kids to fit any size of bike, that basically you discuss with them what you need and they will build the wheel to order. and there is a special adaptor
10:55 pm
for a folding bike like this one. it is a bit fiddly, but to be honest i did find it perfectly manageable, and that is saying something, because it is me. a tyre and a new wheel. top e—bikes use a crank driven system. this is a hub driven system. this magnetic sensor monitors how fast the pedals go around, and then it takes that into account along with things like acceleration to try and work out how much power to deliver. it is not quite as seamless an experience but is a lot cheaper and a lot lighter. but you do have to accept that there will be some extra cables on your frame after this, and a power pack attached to the handlebars. assuming that won't upset your chi or your aerodynamics too much, you switch it on, select your power assist level and you are ready to go. first pleasant surprise — it wasn't a complete disaster. being a total novice, i did expect it to be harder than it was.
10:56 pm
secondly, it is outrageously fast. i can't actually have it on the highest setting, not on the flats — it is just too fast. i hardly touch the pedals and i am away. the only thing is that the power assistance doesn't always behave itself. sometimes cutting out when i need it, and sometimes kicking in when i am not even pedalling. switch say the problem is most likely the pedals sensor not being perfectly aligned, and in fact a new design of sensor is going to be available in a few weeks. if you do want to return your bike to a normal non—electric, you can take the power pack off, which will leave it only about one kilogram heavier than it was before. although i think that is enough exercise for one lockdown, don't you? wheee! that's it for the short version this week. the full version is brilliant and waiting for you on iplayer right now. you can find us at: thanks for watching,
10:57 pm
and we will see you soon. bye bye. more dry weatherfor a more dry weather for a few on sunday. saturday evening saw the cloud start to melt away with increasingly lengthy clear spells. that pattern continues at the moment. the skies continues at the moment. the skies continue to clear, with the exception of the far north of scotland, which will have thicker cloud and quite a busy night in shetland with passing showers from
10:58 pm
time to time as well. in the countryside, chili, temperatures down to six or 7 degrees in those cold spots. a sunny start, cloud will encroach on northern ireland, rain eventually and that will reach west of scotland as we head to the evening. cloud bubbles in eastern england during the late morning and tend to spread into the early afternoon. for most it stays fine, house up to 24. —— hi is. this is bbc news with the latest headlines for viewers in the uk and around the world. donald trump puts on a mask, after months of refusing to wear one in public. the us president is accused of "unprecedented, historic corru ption" for cancelling a prison sentence for his ally roger stone. all right.
10:59 pm
well, god bless you mr president. please give my regards to the first lady. bosnia marks the 25th anniversary of the srebrenica massacre. 8,000 muslim men and boys were murdered. also on the programme — tributes to the england football legend jack charlton. one of the stars of the 1966 world cup winning football team has died at the age of 85.
