2:30 am
the film industry fest in which your devolved you're a huge star admired by millions if not billions around the world has gone from strength to strength because many years ago it didn't have the investment that it needed but now very much a year on a part in batting you know i guess bollywood it's bollywood versus the lowly with it she's fantastic to see how do you find that it's very difficult to compare with bollywood because they have a big market they have lot of santa mars in their country. it's way bigger country than pakistan the film industry of pakistan is pulling and it's booming very quick very which is a very good thing and of course you've got a big audience in the u.k. i mean i myself of course was on our lovely wood serious advice and i buy him a few thousand on. the castle on them either i was fired by yourself i play the ghost. who was dubbed literally but nonetheless i think people knew i was saying the i think you guys are familiar with my work and was an inspiration to.
2:31 am
me drumgold you worked in a. neighbor's ghost and we shortened. when we getting good talent from you recently there have been like two when you want to. go broke on the very famous in pakistan there's a struggle because they had an accent obviously when they speak in our language or do they have an accent like british accent so they did struggle they worked hard on their accent and now they are the most popular stars pakistan they're doing movies they're doing t.v. series t.v. dramas everything so obviously in amongst that what you do for tail you've got a lot of things that are due to your heart because you're in the living rooms of millions of people every single day of the week therefore you have a huge constituency theories and we spoke briefly fessler by interest in dealing with all sideways and raising awareness about ip. the problem is in pakistan and
2:32 am
people knew about it they don't realize did don't know because you know when i present the script to the channel that i really want to work on this so he was like what is this i said this is a disease or a lot of women going through with this disease so it's a disease or is a short term memory thing i said no you know you we can't control it we just have to tell people how to educate people how to get to this thing alex recently interviewed in geneva jackie stewart to a very moving interview and. his wife helen in the early one suffers from dementia. and jack is one of the race against dementia of the failing to as quickly as a recent arrival in the. news coming forward with his usual gusto to both the real winners and to raise funds and to the politicians in pakistan our politicians are
2:33 am
the better actor than us. all the time you know the drama is going on on news channels all that i can hold on if you're breaking news you know whatever so they're fighting all the time so they're better actors that's that's a shame because i think politics is what is in there are there are viable reason difficulties exist across the world but i think when creative people become embroiled in or are unable to to do what they do best which is pleating international audiences that that's really sad and i suppose i want to take you on to a question about how much you feel you you have a clear rule of ambassadors for pakistan iran the world i mean you obviously get recognized of course actually where there's a big responsibility here on earth if you people like to go out and say something to kill. me or her to be a campaigner now it's a most awful that be something political to me this is fantastic i mean muscle this is what the audiences at the oscars are all. was there waiting to hear i mean it's
2:34 am
much much better when people are watching you. and likes bigger stars people a lot of people are following you so they expect they want to you know have what this person this actor say is for the people who are following so you know. we have a great responsibility and i said i german you find many awards in your careers you've never had a clear scottish loving cup some of us just mean. to present you with the alexander mcqueen the idea is you put whiskey or a soft drink where we want and be quick and you pass and then you'll have orders and. only your clothes and it's beautiful and i believe it's handmade and definitely i made it myself thank you thank you thank you thank you i mean we're going to place a means cup of kindness now from east to west from a lowly wood to holyrood because i know john by the start of states and screen mr bryant calls brian welcome to the alex salmond show nice to see yours in the week
2:35 am
of the golden globes and i know you were nominated for golden globe your neighbor years a. little quote from the envelope but the question over the words that is when you're the appeal of these big awards do you actually know what you want no you don't do serious you don't really want and in this week's golden globe awards offices paintings up campaign the stars of hollywood making the protest but by a willing black woman do you feel about protests like that you think they have their place or do you think it's a place it's very strange because you know it's been a long time coming but actually historically it's been a roman for a much longer than one thanks i mean it's not new states up till the gets here the term is up it's been going on in the time it's been up for a long long time and finally i think. as this settlement showed the other night they've finally had enough and it's time to protest the other. political thinker happened according to the social media as
2:36 am
oprah winfrey made a what's been described as a presidential nomination speech so who or what oprah for president would she be galloping you're backing well she's a pretty bright woman she's done amazing things she's very very popular i don't know i quite honestly i don't know if she'd want to be president you know i think it's a tough job yourself of it and. does that get any elected alarm bishan as ireland scotland or indeed that there is an american citizen who in america knows somebody once asked me about i would start. in done d. and i had to deplane because i too much work oh. so i know i made peace in the difficult you can affect it and i know that no you can't fix it because you would have to be in the lobby you have to vote you have to do well i was governor of california they did not know give you the no no i got for me el i just follow my muscly calling the drama which is all off the politicians you've played in because you played
2:37 am
a range of knowledge that when most recently strongly performance in the film last year in the truck show film. you played a really played michael modest because i said call his so if you've got a favorite my favorite character i played was knight bevan i did a film about my bourbon which was written by a wonderful writer called trevor gryphus i mean this was in the ninety's it was about his last days and it was a fantastic film and he was he was an extraordinary character because he was the guy who created the national health service and was it was he your political inspiration because of you you were very much a labor party supporter are you voice of the if i remember in one thousand nine hundred seventy. the election brokers it was all down to use yeah i did it you know fighting with mr mandelson the boat being you know he wanted to be much more brutal to john major and i was very resistant of that because i thought john major was another good man his sell by date was well and truly up by ninety seven so it was a it's. it's going to be there was going to be a change but nobody expected such
2:38 am
a landslide as it was but some fifteen years old something years later you know problem of support of the scottish independence really for you this was very much intellectual conventional political convention you wouldn't describe this i was a scottish nationalist so i would. describe myself as a nationalist but i'm settling independent. i mean although i think the nationalist party has done. has done an amazing job and they did become the keepers of the flame of social democracy which was dying five or six years ago you know it was it still is absent down here. guys are financial survival guide liquid assets does that you can pass quite easily . to keep in mind the places. where.
2:39 am
i had a great education good job and a family that loved me. i never had to worry about how and where i would speak. i'm facing christmas in love on the streets of london. i could. still give up. and then. i just came over to. this book.
2:40 am
all to see we have a great team but we need to strengthen before the freefall world cold and your backs have been a legend to keep it so it's at the back. in one thousand nine hundred two that must qualify for the european championships at the very last moment no one believed in us but we won and i'm hoping to bring some of that winning spirit to the r.c.t. . recently i've had a lot of practice so i can guarantee you that peter schmeichel will be on the best fall since my last will come on that story as well as three. thousand zero zero zero zero city rush hour. strife. left left left more or less ok stuff that's really good.
2:41 am
brian cox you the truth terms as a rector of the director of a scottish i mean sions coalition of the let them be yours is a huge position of influence elected by the student body and sometimes the way that academic body but actually chairs the governing body of the university what i loved about being rector was the fact that i could set up surgeries and i could talk to the students about the individual problems they had and they still i have great criticism of university educations but because i was great believer of the conversation my time there and what i realized is a lot of the way universities are planned in relations with the students need to be dealt with and of course i had the problem not the problem but i inherited the difficulty that students had the lawlessness that they feel in the university set up their inability to deal with their own perhaps social diseases like. what have
2:42 am
you to some of the young women and young men suffered from so is it was something that was very very you know it was something that really a put you know because that the idea of rector and it's all sense was you know the cho sort of took care of the academic side. the rector took care of the spiritual side so you know being a humanist you know almost if i took i took that responsibility which was the humanist aspect of hope the students don't have the time but your time is right just ending quite recently twice tell me that can say that with a big change in your home city have done the end of your names for the better many things moving forward you know in the university and then this is it also and the rise of you know well i mean he is. a much blighted city its history is one of blighted which is you know there's a kind of parallel element but i have with my city that we're survivors they're called on to the city of discovery but i i think it's
2:43 am
a city of survival actually and it's always come through because the people are great i mean they did. you know it was the most corrupt city in scotland in the main nine hundred sixty s. i mean literally the labor party a corrupt labor party literally destroyed the city in the mid and it was like the biggest car park and you know it's changing and then you know you mention the victoria and albert arising from that of of china. and we've funked and we have aspect of the tape which was never there before you know you couldn't see the t.v. you know but we have this great frontage now and it's fantastic what do you think would be any will be as influential in the audience let's say the guggenheim as i have no question of them i mean i think it leads on to a lot of things and people are beginning to mug because i also am a great even though i criticised a lot of the i think it was a great university and i thought i would recommend any kid to go to the because it's a great environment but you said that lisa said they are survivors but when sometimes still didn't survive and. he was not tolerated because he was there from one
2:44 am
thousand or he was m.p. from one thousand know it in one thousand nine hundred eighty two. and he was greatly supported by the irish but when he got to one hundred twenty two with the black and tans with the whole six counties deal in northern ireland and the death of michael cole of the irish community held where he went from being a friend a fireman to an enemy of the other way of dudley's murdered by the electorate and you had a family connection i had a family connection here money well call jordie when i was a wee boy used to tell me about churchill who he admitted that he really ultimately said ah but he was the man for us when it came to the war but he said but before all that he said i remember he said he said i remember we'll he said we were there did in the city square he said and churchill came in and they brought a bag and he was on a big wheel it was what a big armchair with a sort of look like puddles like course they were carrying them because he was sick
2:45 am
and he was no way when we showed you that i showed the guys that were kerry was a how much did. they are the guys shouted back a quid pound the buck we're here to have you drop of. so what and. when you would went home so wasn't too pleased to be a lawyer i was very sickly he really did believe i gotta go buy a temp and scandal. story but i'm in so he had didn't buy templar's kind of the. so it sort of cost the city that only did he actually made a speech on the platform the train he actually got them to hold the tray in the back and he made the speech to all these people who were sort of trying to get a sense he said and he was very brave i have to say the dog the dundonian the way dead but he did say i will see the grass grow new green over what will be an industrial west lands a great firm and for those of us innocent definitely catch all of it was a fantastic fantastic film so if played by bevan if played chuck show.
2:46 am
any other big politicians you've played well i played my emmy the emmy award for playing herman goering. just because the scripts lead somebody completely different and boring was really interesting because again you get into the skin of somebody who was hitler's pitcher and he was that as frontman for so long and even though the hand one hundred forty five hitler sentence seems to death because goring was not part of the final solution even though he had created the concentration camps and by the way he created those concentration camps based on the british example of what happened in the boer war in them than they were the inspiration for during but he was a very complicated money was a bit of a sure of he was a cross dresser so that was elements to which were quite quite
2:47 am
a sensational but he was brilliant and also he was. extraordinary in the way he defended his position because you know he wanted to be sentenced to death as a soldier this is a new number and you want this unit from the senate and you must earn your record in a certain than you're a good process and he it was really interesting because he he was wanted to be executed he wanted to be shot but they were going to hang him so he actually took his own life but what he did was he gave them a lecture robert jackson who was the american prosecutor or the attorney general had been or what did become the attorney general mark and tony joe he did give him a lecture on why you know why national socialism happened and it was a very plausible lecture to about you know the state that germany was and the punishment of aside the fact that you know of course he himself. during an amazing
2:48 am
thing he took his own squadron and flew them and abandoned them in switzerland walked back he went to sweden he lived in sweden for a long time and he came back when this funny we character the sweeping house painter from vienna started up and he became his promoter and i mean he really said you've been you're dead to keep the politics of president from fear deprecate the blacks that process as a sort of thing where you see and understand some of the forces which of of all lead to the. i think it's well i do that it's the fact that you callow ignore the populace you know and the populace has been ignored on both sides of the allotted for far too long and of course what happens when you ignore the proper lists is that ignorance builds up and let's talk about your own past all campaigns and you've been very prominent and diabetes shuki. condition you suffer from your santa and but this aspect of the profile it can be given to key campaigns by major
2:49 am
figures and stars do you feel you've embraced this as one of your projects well i mean diabetes or k. of course touch me personally because i am diabetic and i have a terrible sweet tooth which is developed in childhood and of course that's the danger point it's all to do with chill wasn't kudos candy world was everything you know it was germs and. delicacy here supporters ladies and gentlemen it's more you know exactly sports but it's not also to be recommended not a told to be recommended and but i was i was raised on all that and of course that's how it starts it starts with the children and we we still do not acknowledge and this we in the sugar industry is pretty you know you did a documentary i did a documentary about the addiction of sugar yeah and sugar is addict up i mean i interviewed a guy in this documentary who was he was addicted to one of the big things is low fat the whole loaf that's which. is created by well it was actually created by in
2:50 am
america the idea that again the sugar industry didn't want to be touched so they said it was all fats well actually fats are healthy for you and equate to the should get in the street with the alcohol industry and the drugs in the sky i think sugar is much more pernicious i really think it's infinitely more pernicious than either of those four things diabetes is costing a fortune in the national health service if you could cure his bills would drop enormously and that's that's real that is a real problem so this is a real hussein yet or is it because i'm also an addict that. i'm a sugar addict you know and i have problems in them and i just got a letter from my doctor today saying you know richie one c. is up you know you got to get it done in fact does that mean the chops will break like a fish right for his political career aranda musta been a stay and you know one of them to his ninety's and became the greatest burthen the
2:51 am
whole time well i mean i think that i mean you know the process of living is still such a mystery to us why some people die i mean a lot people sort of die get to the late sixty's and then pop off the road about sixty eight sixty seven is a big figure for people with a loss but a nurse in the us but over here we're over the but friend of mine you know which was completely unexpected which was alan rickman you know yes he was well it was a great great moment great mother the theater just a great man generally speaking and died far too young as far as i'm concerned and he had pancreatic cancer which of course by credit cancer is the pancreas not function in the way it should in that can cause build up and what have you and that's also linked with sugar as we because that's where you create insulin you know so those are the health aspect of prevention is very very important and it's something that one should look to and and i feel that we haven't done enough about it have your hopes for politics have been with other stuff. have
2:52 am
a year where you know if you were doing you know your new year resolutions for change in politics in scotland what old mtl national well what would you like to see as this though there's a sort of conflict between the particular in the general what is needed in that community as opposed to what's needed in the bigger white world and i think there's always this conflict that goes on and it came to me really joining the referendum this is going to have a scottish referendum and and when i got behind it which was almost intellectual the reason i got behind it was because of social democracy and because the labor party i felt had lost a lot of its values that i believed in and i had gone and so i i embraced scottish independence but what i felt was that and it's the thing that really irks me about still the u.k. is a still very feudal still based on old feudal notion of everybody in the place you
2:53 am
know america for all its problems and there are many probably many more than here in many ways but it's fundamental is a gallon tarion well you're the you're the only actor who played them both believe hop island and rob roy some ulterior it's the same thing it's positive in the negative but but in terms of you know in past no been what projects you're working on no and i'm doing your training for h.b.o. which i'm in the middle of based in new york playing a very very playing the leader of the fifth largest media conglomerate in the world and he's a man of his self-made man called logan roy as he of scott's answer he does have scott sounds as though he came across as a child it was as if disco it was a refugee to canada and he worked on his own clothes ranch and then he went back to scotland for a while and then he came back and then he set up his empire and he has these four children who hate him and he's not very fond of them and it's
2:54 am
a really are. disproportional media family it's very it's very sharp it's very dark and lacking and quite often we fictional of course shortly fictional to a pretty bride cause the before before you go before you go for the new year oh dear untitled to the exam and quick think you are under no circumstances put any sugar in there you go out of the holy and only more. kids thank you it's like is a work thank you thank you very much what i thought was interesting about healing from these firm stars of east and west is a both see part of the public role was campaigning for causes in the case of faisal and asia's dimentia in the case of brian cox diabetes that's not a good work seldom generates criticism is commendable nonetheless what does often provoke attack is when actors ventured into the more directly political arena they are partially dismissal if someone cares enough about the human condition to enter
2:55 am
public debate then the celebrity is being used to good advantage they are prepared to put their heads above the political part of it. i think it's no disqualification for political knowledge after all are not hugely talented actor once became a successful president of the united states those who lead criticism in the press these people who love to exercise power of taking any of us sponsibility they should be flogged off meanwhile those in rival parties are gone they usually just be green with envy that their field the land the big fish so good luck to people like brian cox they graced public life just as they graced the stage and so will scream so from all here at the likes of insurers goodbye from now.
2:56 am
in the heart of the swiss alps this is a place probably more secretive than the pentagon more mysterious than the cia and better guarded than for knox ellis with customs are here permanently on the site is controlled by them and they impose the opening time story of the opposite it is from his office the procedures in place of the strictest in all europe masterpieces by artists like pecan so and modigliani i can't boards and sold inside this warehouse that's where the report comes in because it covers up deals which are naturally discreet commercially discreet struck but also discreet because they concern fraud that some of those paintings are linked to dark secrets nobody knows how many of these secrets a kept inside the geneva freeport system and you'll never obtain an inventory of
2:57 am
all the works in the freeport who knows how many there are three hundred three thousand three hundred thousand it's a matter of confidentiality only is it the world like the art business. in two thousand and sixteen the panama papers show the world with a tax haven the secrets two trillion united states dollars pass through most. in the amount of time that we've been in panama papers exposure that's what it shows a lot of money it really is. journalism it's an act of journalism looking at things that people want to keep secret and asking why would they want to keep these things secret. millions of fun psycho documents were examined. the only people we basically have tried to get an advantage out of this sort of
2:58 am
newspaper. and probably other politician which were. other police in the media would point to find targets such as the kings of morocco and saudi arabia the president of argentina several prime ministers. and russian president vladimir putin of course. oh my god i've had so i have sued so many newspapers for defamation some things don't just happen by chance it was very striking there were no more americans in the list specially good ole lot of people from the brics countries specially brazil russia and china that this special project reveals what was missed in the media coverage. of the panama chronicles.
