8:02 pm
a former russian double agent and he's daughter were poisoned in britain the diplomatic fallout continues to intensify the u.k. has accused russia of masterminding the attack using a soviet era nerve agents that left again julius cripple fighting for their lives twenty seven countries including britain the united states germany and many other e.u. member states have since said that they are to expel more than one hundred russian diplomats in response today nato joined the mass expulsions announcing that it was sending home seven russian diplomats and deny denying accreditation to three more with nato joining the expulsions of russian diplomats the alliances secretary general said moscow had it coming. it sounds a clear message to russia that there are costs and consequences for it's unacceptable and dangerous pattern of behavior the u.k. welcomes the solidarity right russia enough is enough russia denies having anything
8:03 pm
to do with the poisoning and insists the u.s. is coercing other states to join its lead. what diploma this or that country tells one or two diplomats to leave well whispering apologies into our ears we know that this is the result of colossal pressure colossal blackmail which is now unfortunately the main tool of washington on the international arena the oceans the numbers a little bit. and on the streets of moscow people also expressed belief their country is being victimized i made it possible to make the americans are against us and they're trying to crush us so that our country won't develop and won't become even stronger. apparently we don't have enough influence like the other countries like the united states or the developed european countries. and as. russia's relations with the west are clearly on ice and a thaw may be
8:04 pm
a long time coming they don't need correspondent terry scholtz is at nato headquarters in brussels welcome terry let's start with more of what the u.n. stoltenberg had to say yes secretary-general stoltenberg announced that nato has decided to expel seven diplomats out of the russian mission and block accreditation procedures for three more in addition it will force russia to reduce by a third the size of its mission here that's the second time that he has forced russia to downsize the first time was after crimea was annexed in two thousand and fourteen so that means that a maximum twenty diplomats will be able to staff the russian mission after today and what impact is this likely to have on relations between nato and russia. it remains to be seen what moscow will say about this it is planned that there
8:05 pm
would be a nato russia council coming up in the near future discussions were underway as to the agenda and the date and i suppose it's very possible russia will say that it doesn't want to speak to nato now if it's going to take what it will consider a very hostile acts like this but secretary general stoltenberg was very careful to say that he hoped that dialogue would continue he pointed out that nato considers it important to keep a dual track approach that is to take stringent measures against russia for its aggressive behavior while at the same time leaving open the path to two to talk but there is another message in stolzenberg still to berg's words and that is that he mentioned specifically intelligence work done by russia so this is certainly a message that won't be lost on the russians that stoltenberg said specifically reducing the mission was done to reduce the ability of russia to do intelligence work in nato countries so this is certainly a very strong message perhaps even stronger than it appears just from from the bare words and i would expect that the kremlin will have something to say about it so
8:06 pm
let's pick up about points and terry most of these diplomatic expose them to the presumption is that these diplomats are actually intelligence officers which does beg the question why is nato accrediting russian spies and what's the stated purpose that. i don't think you'd have any diplomat probably saying that they're crediting spies because that would be then shirking shirking their duties it's the belgian government who is responsible for actually issuing the accreditations but nato has to offer them a place and so cutting the number of russian diplomats of evony strife will certainly in installs and burns words reduce their capability to do that i think that russia will respond very harshly but it's it's it's capabilities of having any sort of tit for tat action are limited when it comes to nato because nato doesn't have a big mission in moscow it's guys one military liaison officer at the moment and a nato information officer whose post remains they can at the moment the rest are
8:07 pm
local staff i'm told so if moscow expects to have have any sort of dramatic expulsion activity it won't be against nato it will more likely be against these governments that have taken their own actions teri schultz of nato headquarters in brussels thank you so how is this naysay well actually likely to be viewed in the kremlin concert in fun and i got to use an analyst in the russian capital welcome constantly in moscow might be to reacts to this latest move from nato. well i think that traditionally moscow reacts in a reciprocal way so we can expect expulsions and we can expect the closure of. of one of the remaining three u.s. consulates in in russia but as terry correctly said with regard to nato will be quite difficult to reciprocate because the both nathan information office and they to military liaison mission are running on essentially skeleton staff so
8:08 pm
reciprocation a bit difficult but definitely i think moscow is the flabbergasted by that it is highly irritated by these measures and of course there is the reason reason for that because frankly in recent memory neither will say nor the kim family north korea would meted out such diplomatic humiliation and also awful of course it shows and it lays bare the fact that russia has absolutely no allies another single country supported it in its standoff with the west and actually it is now a standoff not only with the u.k. not only with u.k. allies but it is a standoff with the global west so in a sense to me it looks like a diplomatic catastrophe but at the same time it doesn't mean that the kremlin will change will change its policy line any time soon so from what you're saying that it is you seem to be saying that russia did not expect to push back on this scale.
8:09 pm
yes absolutely and i'm sure about it of course i'm not private to the discussions in the kremlin but i don't think that when this scandal with the with the poisoning of the ex double agent in seoul is very started to develop anyone here expected that it will become a global diplomatic crisis that is already i think written into a most international relations textbooks for universities. i think that the level of solidarity of britain's allies of the e.u. of actually nato allies to now was completely took moscow completely by surprise and if you look at what happened in the last twenty four hours even those who were considered to be moscow's friends quote unquote like viktor orban the prime minister of hungary decided to side with the you can expel a russian diplomat probably not very willingly but still that shows you where the priorities of the much trumpeted moscow friends in the e.u.
8:10 pm
lie in reality so this i repeat is quite a humiliation i think it's actually quite it is awesome for russian foreign policy so given that how is all this being reported inside russia indeed is it being reported. it is although i think that's quite logically it's been overshadowed by the horrible. fire in siberia where dozens of people including children died but it is reported and it is reported by state television which is massively overrepresented as you know here in russia in a very traditional conspiracy theory vein it's not snape two it's not the e.u. that are taking these decisions the nature of the e.u. are just like case of the united states that decided to punish russia because russia has become too strong and too great for the us to stomach this is
8:11 pm
essentially what's being fed to the russian population over the over the years by the state run media and this is what quite a lot of people believe they believe it's an unjust punishment for a crime that's basically has not been investigated to the us i don't think that many russians understand the whole political context of what happened and most of them wouldn't remember the history behind kind of the russian office cation starting from the litvinenko murder going through the georgian wall crimea. and so on and so forth so suppose that's most russians would basically. going to swallow this propaganda line because the scene i guess in moscow thank you i must take a look at some of the other stories making news around the world tensions simmering in the balkans a day after kosovo expelled a c.b.s. serbian politician costco's prime minister has defended the moves like the official and to the country illegally the political party representing cost of

separatist leader covers putin most says he will never surrender and the fight for independence from spain how may alone serve vs spoke to the press after visiting his client is a jail in northern germany pushable has been held weston's being arrested on a european warrant while travelling through the country it could take weeks for job of course to decide whether the former scotland leader should be extradited to spain to face charges of rebellion if convicted he could face twenty five years behind bars. a closer look at the legal aspects of this case christiane thomas shock is a professor of law at the humboldt university in berlin welcome to date of the so in simple terms that it is actually dition as simple as we want you've got him can we have him back place no no it's not as easy as that because the matter is now in the hands of the judiciary the german tribunals that have to decide on whether he can be extradited and judges are totally independent they don't want to not obey
8:14 pm
any old is our government so they're really independent and act according to all the relevant rules european new rules and german rules and so what will decide whether or not cost bush among a set back to spain well i i have grave doubts as to whether he might be sent back to spain actually i did because. according to the european decision the european. arrest warrant decision the offenses you know must be recognized as punishable under the law of both stites so he's in charge with addition rebellion and misappropriation of public for us as additions addition as an. offense against the spanish law in germany we have also some kind of hope for hans addition but it's situation against the german legal
8:15 pm
order that's totally different and on the other hand we have a long tradition in the sense that no extradition on grounds of political offenses this is a highly political offense and i am not sure that. he might be absent i did on grounds of his the charges everybody has that seems to care sedition and rebellion misappropriation of public funds just sounds like stealing well that sounds like stealing but misappropriation of public money because the organized elections that also that has a political note might be seen as forming a whole a compact hold together with the rebellion and this all will have to be weighed was it touches so you're think it's unlikely that you'll be extradited. you might be answered i did on just on grounds of misappropriation of public funds but then
8:16 pm
spain is in a very difficult situation because down in a spade the scope of the charges is limited to baltic german judges because this is the way it works if you extradited on a particular charge that is the charges you must face sort of your being presidency and no other charge maybe vote against him ok so if he let's say that they extradition is successful and it is a misappropriation of public funds i mean what's he looking out when he gets back to spain. well then i think that will be a mine of fans that will not be too serious and for spain of calls those the main point is sedition and rebellion that is a charge brawled against him and if only it comes the misappropriation or misuse of public funds that is not really the heart of the matter ok very briefly united nations human rights committee accepted a cultist bush was complaint that spain has violated his political rights isn't
8:17 pm
likely to have any impact i don't think so i don't think so and i'm i'm not very satisfied with that decision as you might go any if it has been taken i know nothing about it but it seems strange to me of a right well it's have to send a stiff e-mail thank you very much for joining us professor professor christina tosha thank you. well this is germany's biggest lender is banking on a new boss to turn his fortunes around donna went out of business to ask a small thank you phil dodge a bank is looking to replace c.e.o. john cryan that's according to a newspaper article continual clashes between cry on lends the bank's chairman powell are reportedly behind the move that his daughter struggles to get back in the black another profit war warning came in january but who would even want to replace john cryan the top job is increasingly seen as a poisoned chalice. he took over in twenty fifteen toft with turning the bank
8:18 pm
fortunes around now of reports in britain's times newspaper suggest john cry in days at deutsche bank could be numbered speculation about a possible successor is already rife. we are hearing that the lender has apparently asked the vice chairman of goldman sachs richard kanada to take over which is interesting because also the new state secretary in the german finance ministry is a former goldman sachs employee but it seems that in order it's not interested but one thing is very sure it's going to be a very challenging job among the many challenges germany's biggest lender is facing reversing three consecutive years of losses some of which can be attributed to the billions of dollars it had to pay out as a result of scandals related to mortgage fraud and price manipulation. and then there's the mammoth task of restoring the banks battered image in this area critics

say there's a lot left to be desired cryan secession to put drupal bonus payouts last year despite making a loss did little to allay concerns. fresh funds for greece the euro zone's bailout fund has just approved a six point seven billion euro zone installment after the greek government back to painful reforms finally meeting the conditions to unlock those funds the reforms included changes in tax policy privatization of state holdings as well as tackling bad debt the european stability mechanism is due to pay the first of five point seven billion euros on wednesday the remaining billion could be released in may its greece manages to make progress in reducing arrears. folks bargain might face an expensive lawsuit in the us another country more than fifty thousand british taking legal action following the emissions scandal it could become the largest
8:20 pm
group case in british legal history a three day hearing now underway at london's high court will determine whether the claims can be managed collectively. in the u.s. v.w. has already agreed to pay up to twenty five billion dollars to settle claims from owners the world's biggest carmaker has admitted to manipulating software in around eleven million cars worldwide. when germany doesn't want some of its most polluting cars it dumps them in the east at a profit there in eastern europe lacks air pollution standards approving a viable market for second hand these rules. smog in poland it's not just the cold heating that sends large amounts of microscopic pollution particles into the atmosphere many cars in eastern europe diesels in germany on the other hand there are strict emission limits it's possible that soon only new diesels will be allowed in german cities and many car owners selling their older diesels now to
8:21 pm
secondhand dealers they aren't willing to let cars that still hold a significant resale value get scrapped they are selling them through partners in eastern europe the number of exported used diesels climbed from around one hundred ninety seven thousand in two thousand and sixteen to two hundred thirty three thousand in twenty seventeen that's an eighteen percent rise in exports to eastern europe group significantly the export of sixteen thousand older diesels to ukraine and twenty seven thousand was more than double the tally for the previous year sales to albania cost of all remaining at the czech republic and poland also rose while western european countries are going to be introducing even stricter emission levels in the coming years most countries to the east won't be changing their rules environmental groups are now bringing the along. we have no pollution tax for cars which makes romania heaven for old and polluting
8:22 pm
cars authorities do not encourage all support healthy alternatives and the government does not actually fight air pollution. and so more and more older diesels are ending up in for example the romanian capital book arrest these are air pollution problem is being profitably shifted beyond germany's borders. hundreds of taxi drivers from across the e.u. have been protesting in brussels against ride sharing platform they say european authorities are not doing enough to protect workers' rights players in the digital economy like the protesters. brussel city center to a standstill with taxis blocking access to a new institutions in many european countries has angered regular taxi drivers who claim it's driving down their business while flouting local employment regulations . sports now and memories of an embarrassing defeat yes indeed daniel thank you so much seven. is the painful scoreline seared into the consciousness of every

brazilian football fan but memories of that thrashing at home against germany in the twenty fourteen world cup semifinals may fade tonight if brazil can beat your team loves side in a friendly invalid let's just remind ourselves how hard that's happened on humbling brazil. hello horizontal july eighth two thousand and fourteen my. nation weeps. i. dream of a whole new world title don't pull this thing but you know that i'm actually happy that we have this game because i don't want to take the ghost of a seven month defeat to the world cup what would they keep the physician for that i mean it's. replacing coach louis philippe scolari with carlos don't go after the debacle didn't change things for the next which in two thousand and sixteen did
8:24 pm
following the appointment of chichen brazil have won fourteen games out of eighteen losing just once the joy and passion. was a key knows what he's doing see the knots why brazil won their qualifying group convincingly and have developed as a team. that's why i think he can give this team a clear identity. someone shot from. the trauma of two thousand and fourteen is a mortal eyes nick up about the beach. but so too are the hopes of the street artists a world cup win in russia will go some way to raising that seven one scoreline from the brazilian collective memory. while germany and brazil meet tonight at the olympic stadium in lynn which is where we find jonathan harding from d.w. sports welcome jonathan brazil has more at stake now then just raising the memory
8:25 pm
of a painful defeat. absolutely it's a chance for brazil to show themselves as a new team we just heard about a new identity there and she has certainly brought that to this brazilian side tonight there will be no name but there is a chance for brazil to show themselves as a more balanced team a team that works back in defense and in attacking side as well that everybody knows from history i think it's a chance for brazil to banish the ghosts from four years ago but despite that it still hangs heavy in their sights some of the fans this evening still it's a little bit nervous on their way into the stadium. so important for brazil but also important for germany who defend their world cup title definitely important for germany you know after the performance on friday where they weren't quite at their best it's an opportunity to do what you're going to have spoke about this week he said they can they must and they will improve and tonight is a chance to show that in terms of the way that germany play they've got to be
8:26 pm
better in the final third and some of the players have got to show themselves capable of a world cup spot after all that's what is at stake this evening a world cup spot for some of these players none more so than in the striking position where my old gomez team of anna and sandra wagner go head to head in terms of finding out who will be the starting man leading the line when you're interested let's bring us more of the team news takeoffs less than twenty minutes yes i have hinted at it my goal is the one who gets to start in attack tonight kevin trap start seeing goal you're going live to talk about both goalkeepers getting some game time so perhaps but leno will be seen in the second half local boy martin platen heart starts a left back and sonja ruediger next to him in the heart of defense and the other surprise perhaps is the own gorecki in midfield but the biggest news of the night is the drone voting will be captain of germany yet how significant is that for him . well we talked about friendly games sometimes getting bad press in terms of their
8:27 pm
lack of significance obviously that's not the case than i would germany playing brazil but it is a huge moment for jerome boating a burnin born football player burning man and a black man leaving out germany this is huge for him but also for the country. thank you. this is day dubliners live from balance still to come facebook boss mark silva refuses an invitation to answer questions from british lawmakers but a whistle blower upstaters said but his own evidence spoke listen. well how about more of the day so world and business news as well plus on the way here on the don't.

wars twenty ninth on g.w. . city dublin your car from. the top story of nature has announced that it is to expel several russian diplomats and response to the poisoning of a four month double agent in britain a military alliances joint twenty seven countries and taking diplomatic action against russia. a facebook treif mark zuckerberg has refused invitation to appear in front of a british parliamentary committee lawmakers want to question him about how millions of users details got in the hands of a firm paid to influence elections it comes on the day the whistleblower the heart of the data scandal told his story to lawmakers our next focus is building theory he is the public face of all world's biggest social network but mark zuckerberg isn't feeling sociable when it comes to taking questions especially not from
8:31 pm
european politicians. as inquiry's mom to face big news is the data of its two billion users he told vest british parliamentary committee he would not be giving evidence we believe given the serious nature of the allegations that have been made around the access and use of facebook user data that is appropriate the mark zuckerberg should give evidence to the committee. one man who did want to talk was the pink haired whistleblower at the heart of this data scandal he said it was the race for the white house that made him go public coridon chung kind of makes clicking your head that this actually has a much wider impact i don't think that the military mission operations is conducive for any democratic process whether it's a us presidential or a local council or its political campaigns have changed christopher wiley what does a data engineer for london based cambridge on
8:32 pm
a letter the farm boast of its ability to run elections on the cheap mark in twenty fourteen they paid for millions of facebook profiles and are accused of using them to build psychological programs to micro target voters right moment is more important than ever this is where cambridge analytical in our revolution and help them swing votes in elections around the world including donald trump they deny using the data to break down voters. the company's co-founder disputes that claim. it is not a good work we. categorically. came in with it has never used facebook data. from one silicon valley billionaire could surely shine light on this question whether lawmakers across the world get to go face to face with and which is another matter. that. was not just lawmakers who want to speak about because public outrage shows no sign of abating as the latest scandal prompts more and more
8:33 pm
uses to take a closer look at their facebook accounts so far and they don't use social media as a columnist one has been doing some of his own digging the hole what did you find i think many people like me are starting to rethink their relationship with facebook a lot of people want to know just how much data does facebook have on them so it turns out the company stores a lot more information than the even i thought and we decided to take a look so how much facebook how much information is facebook have on me here's what we did and this is even something that our viewers can do at home as well if they're curious first we went to my facebook page and clicked on the tab there that says settings if you scroll down there's a link that says download a copy of your facebook data and this will produce fill a large archive of the information that you've shared with facebook stretching back years inside is all kinds of surprising stuff post on your timeline messages you've sent and ads or categories of facebook associates with you which you can see there
8:34 pm
but there are also some things people may not know that facebook collects like here a list of names and phone numbers directly taken from my mobile phone and the ip addresses of computers where i logged on and this even includes geo coordinates which you can see here that of all the places where i logged on if you pulled those into google maps you can see that facebook knows that i logged on at an ikea location there in cologne there and that red dot so what is the company doing with all this information. most of it is used for advertising of course and there's a clue in one of the documents there you can see i've been classified based on my group of friends as established adult life so least somebody thinks i'm a real adult altogether facebook had about a gigabyte of information on me and some of it i found surprising that location that i did not know that facebook was collecting that. really because every time you if you if you like old luggage so it knows where you are less you switch the thing off it's surprised i'm surprised you're surprised by the i think
8:35 pm
a lot of people just don't know and we're seeing a lot of angry users out there posting their own investigations into their facebook data especially people that use android phones to log into facebook and here's just one of them he's in new zealand he discovered facebook had saved his entire call history with his partners mother and facebook has now admitted it did track phone calls and text messages on android phones using the facebook messenger app if the user david permission others pointing out look it's not just facebook other tech companies are tracking us as well take google for example this person downloaded his google history saw it had maps every place i have been in the last twelve months in ireland that's what he writes even the time of day he was there and this travel time and you can see all the locations where this user was tracked in ireland so not just facebook other tech companies of course doing it as well but yeah that there is so i was surprised because when they go where am i google google says you'll of course. where does this leave us i mean a lot of people you know are maybe just starting to realize not everyone is so tech
8:36 pm
savvy they think these services are free but really they're not we're paying like you say with the data that we provide to a facebook or to google i think the real problem is facebook of course as we found out over the last because done a really bad job protecting that data and letting its users know what is being gathered it should be clear you shouldn't download your history and be surprised about what's in there it should be very clear you should know what facebook tracks about you it's going to come down to trust and rebuilding that trust now for facebook and mark zuckerberg i think a lot of people just don't trust the company anymore congressman thank you. now speaking of trust north korea's leader kim jong un is rumored to have visited china though there's been no official confirmation from either side is trainees thought to have left by using if true this would be kim's first visit since that coming to power in twenty eleven and comes ahead of planned meetings with south korea and the united states. the mysterious train departs
8:37 pm
a beijing station destination unknown but it bears a striking resemblance to the heavily armored train used by north korean president kim jong un's father and grandfather was the reclusive leader onboard or perhaps his trusted sister. if it was indeed kim jong un this would be his first known trip abroad since coming to power in two thousand and eleven china says it has no knowledge of the rumored visit. but when kim jong un's father kim jong il visited china in the past his chips were only confirmed by beijing after he had crossed back into north korea beijing support for pianka chain dates back to the korean war in the one nine hundred fifty s. when communist china came to the north eight since then beijing has provided crucial economic support to the isolated country. fast forward nearly seventy years later and kim jong un's priorities have changed beyond changes
8:38 pm
nuclear ambitions have alarmed its closest ally china even took the unprecedented step of imposing sanctions on the north in two thousand and seventeen the mysterious visit comes ahead of a historic summit between the north and south scheduled for april the meeting is expected to focus on denuclearization of the korean peninsula a meeting between kim jong un and u.s. president donald trump is expected sometime before may. daniel winter is backing out with a novel idea to reduce africa's energy poverty trifle and it is a big problem perhaps the biggest developmental issue facing africa is electricity around six hundred million people on the continent all without power that affects the storage of food or medicine lighting in the home or running a factory job and social enterprise africa greentech is hoping to lead by example converting freight containers to power stations which can provide clean cheap
8:39 pm
electricity for a whole village. some of whom it is hard at work with his boss tossed in tribe they're having a container meet that will later be sent to him of whom it's native somaliland solar panels will be added to make it into a kind of mini solar power plant able to supply an entire village somaliland is a self declared independent state recognized as a region of somalia controversial territory but nothing that affects the project you know and i think the recognition of a government by the world community isn't really that important for our projects as long as we get the official licenses to sell electricity it doesn't really matter if one country recognises another stop and. the future location of the container is relatively peaceful just like the rest of somaliland but foreign investors tend
8:40 pm
to avoid the area which means the german company has no competition. the solar containers are already operating in other african countries like me share in villages that aren't connected to the power grid the german company sells the clean energy for fifty euro cents per kilowatt hour which is cheap for africa the revenue goes back into the project the company deliberately ventures into crisis regions. the. reason we're active in countries like the share mali and somalia is that we think our system will have the most impact their. impact that's. their goal is to make a difference in countries whose economic development is being stifled by crisis but schreiber needs investors who are willing to take risks a solar container costs around one hundred seventy five thousand euros including delivery. for now the company has to borrow the money.
8:41 pm
already managed to raise several million euros mostly from charities and other ethical funds. interest rate is six point five percent which seems quite high for german investors but in terms of sub-saharan africa six point five percent is very low companies there are normally refinanced in the double digit range interest rates of twenty point two five percent aren't uncommon so it's about weighing up the risk against the returns that german investors want. or. if a dangerous situation arises the containers can quickly be transported to a safe place but if a plant did somehow get destroyed it would put investors off even more and put the somaliland project on shaky ground. under heading to asia now the garment industry is the main export engine in bangladesh well over eighty percent of the country's exports clothes but one of the engines main components is child
8:42 pm
labor poverty means kids are forced to work to help feed their families thousands of children get no schooling trapping the next generation in a cycle of poverty. the boss clothing company is not aware that its logo is being printed on these t. shirts. but the workers here assure us it's all right because it's for the asian market that's their excuse and they continue to spew out fake boss t. shirts. on our people work very hard and they have to because we bosses expect them to that's. that simple sentence packs a powerful punch there's a lot to do and people are cheaper than machines the talk is tough and the work is hard sewing all day ruins workers' eyes and the industrial chemicals being used damage their lungs it's mostly women and children who work here by law the workers

years of passion and a friend who kind of helped out from our culture desk to tell us well welcome account some of our viewers will remember jane goodall the cover of a national geographic back in the sixty's so what's so special about this as well because it's true of course there were other earlier documentary films made about her at that time but this one is particularly special because it's made with with newly rediscovered footage. previously unseen material over one hundred hours of it's the stuff that was discovered in the archives of national geographic and it focuses very much on her time in tanzania but also includes much later footage from her husband as wealthy from the serengeti for a really incredibly personal but also dramatic and very moving overall effect so let's have a quick look at the film first time there. for. day

the documentary also follows the family nine. watching the young jane goodall is to watch someone who would live on dream the beginnings of a woman who revolutionized understanding of the natural world and to stand still today as an epic conservationist. in season very very obvious chemistry immediately between her and who. apparently he proposed to her via telegram after that first stint in tanzania and he just sort of would you marry me stop. very brief message very well that you never ever heard of so it was all about the money and they actually said yes there certainly would that will do. now they say that jane goodall should see over some of the conventional wisdom of the tire in terms of what makes humans exceptional.

what does she observe well at the time of course people thought that only man as we used to refer to ourselves as well or was capable of rational thought and also that human beings define themselves by their use of tools but she of course very clearly observed that chimps not only used but also made tools we saw that with that with that blade of grass there is now she also saw that each each chip. had an individual personality that they that they really sought and craved physical contact and social contact with one another they were capable of a range of emotions including things like humor and sadness but also incredible brutality and she identified very very clear language signals for instance let's have a look at this this is a chimp greeting. basically that means this is me this is jane. became very fluent indeed i did this without any formal training yes it's amazing and i'm what i'm thinking that that

was actually also to some extent an advantage because she of course wasn't she was unfettered by all of the traditional rigors of scientific protocol if you will and she went at it with her own kind of way and she was able to observe things that are more formal research or perhaps might have missed she really immersed herself in this family of chimps gave them all names and many people of course did try to discredit her because she was just a young girl without a degree but louis leakey actually later sent her to cambridge and she was able to do a ph d. without ever having completed or even started and she earned her her her credentials and just still very active in conservation today yes she it's amazing i mean she'll be eighty four next week still going incredibly strong she's a tireless campaigner for the environment and wants all of us to think about treading a little more lightly on the earth so she found the jane goodall institute back in one nine hundred seventy seven which is for environmental conservation she also founded roots and shoots which is an ngo that aims to bring young people towards
