Loretta Lynn returns after stroke to honor Alan Jackson at Country Music Hall of Fame induction
 
04:50
(23 Oct 2017) LORETTA LYNN RETURNS AFTER STROKE TO HONOR ALAN JACKSON AT COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME INDUCTION Country icon Loretta Lynn returned to the Country Music Hall of Fame for the first time since she suffered a stroke in May, to formally induct Alan Jackson, Sunday (22 OCT. 2017). Jackson joined late guitarist and singer Jerry Reed and songwriter Don Schlitz to become the newest members of the Country Music Hall of Fame during the ceremony in Nashville, Tennessee. Lynn, who cancelled her tour dates this year to recover, said Jackson was the only person that could make her leave her house. She recalled meeting Jackson when he was a nervous young artist decades ago and knowing then that he would "be one of the greatest singers in country music." "He hadn't let me down," said Lynn, who is also a member of the Hall of Fame. The 59-year-old Jackson is one of country music's most successful solo artists, having sold nearly 45 million albums in the United States and had 26 singles reach the top of the Billboard country charts. Many of his hits became instant classics, from the bar-room staple "Chattahoochee" to the somber "Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning)" written after Sept. 11, 2001. Reed, who died at age 71 in 2008, was first known as an in demand studio musician with a unique finger picking style on the guitar. He played for and wrote songs for stars like Elvis Presley and Porter Wagoner. In later years, he started appearing in TV and movies, most notably playing Burt Reynolds' sidekick in "Smokey and the Bandit." He also sang many of the songs on the soundtrack, including "East Bound and Down." His daughters, Seidina Hubbard and Lottie Zavala, accepted the honor on his behalf. Schlitz, 65, from Durham, North Carolina, had his first songwriting hit in 1978 when Kenny Rogers recorded his song "The Gambler," which became Rogers' signature song throughout his career. Songs he helped write include "On the Other Hand" and "Forever and Ever, Amen," both sung by Randy Travis. Aloe Blacc and Vince Gill sang a duet version of "The Gambler" at the ceremony, while singers Charlie Worsham and Mary Chapin Carpenter also performed his songs in his honor.

Unseen belongings of legend Marilyn Monroe unveiled ++REPLAY++
 
05:03
(11 May 2012) LEADIN Never-before-seen belongings of the Hollywood legend, Marilyn Monroe, are on display in Los Angeles. The show marks the 50th anniversary of the movie star's death at the age of 36. STORYLINE: One of the world's most iconic actresses, Marilyn Monroe, is the star of a million dollar exhibition of some of her most personal belongings. It's taking place here in Hollywood, 50 years after her premature death. Over 50,000 fans from all over the world are expected to arrive to commemorate the anniversary. This exhibit is housed inside an old bank vault, and the contents inside are valuable - maybe priceless because of their association with Monroe. The Marilyn Bank Vault Collection at Ripley's Believe It Or Not is Hollywood's ultimate homage to Marilyn, remembering an era and commemorating the queen of the town. Among the many Marilyn items are a hand knitted cardigan, currently valued at USD $170,000. She wore this on her last photo shoot. These are all personal items belonging to the owner of the Ripley's company. Andrea Silverman, general manager of Ripley's Believe It Or Not says: "We have her famous sweater which was actually the last photograph that she did before her death. You're gong to see her makeup case. It took her over three hours to do her makeup. You guys have to come see all the cool stuff that we have. We have her shoes. We have her nightgown when she was married to Joe DiMaggio for her honeymoon" Personal items include a dresser top of Marilyn's cosmetics and makeup case. She was rumoured to take three hours to put on her makeup on every morning. An old Revlon nail polish bottle sits next to an Erno Laszlo face cream, lavender smelling salts, and an Elizabeth Arden eyeshadow. This black lingerie was worn by Marilyn for baseball legend Joe DiMaggio on their wedding night. Slippers with glass and white faux fur straps were valued 10 years ago at over USD $100,000. Also on display is a USD $12,000 lace nightcap as well as a bathing suit that was quite scandalous at the time for being a midriff baring two piece, in US size 16. A polka dot dress on show is known as the willpower dress because it took sheer willpower in the 50s to wear a strapless dress. Head scarves on display were worn to shield herself from the paparazzi. Jeanne Wolf, a veteran Hollywood journalist says: "We loved and adored her and still do. There's something about her very strong. You know she came form utter poverty. She should have had absolutely no exceptions in life and rose to be well arguably the most famous movie star in the world. There was something about her, that no one looked like her. No one reminded you of her. She invented herself. She created herself and in the midst of all of that, there was something so utterly exposed and fragile about her." Her dresses on display showcase her well documented size fluctuations. Going from 37-23-34 and a US size two when she began her career to 38-23-36 in 1962 - a US size 12. A larger than life poster shows her famous dress blowing scene from the movie "The Seven Year Itch." There are 40 pairs of shoes on display, including a pair of red Salvatore Ferragamo shoes which he made just for her. There is a copy of Marilyn's footprints in cement that were given personally to Sid Grauman, the owner of the famed Grauman's Chinese Theatre. They were made in 1953 on the night of the premiere of the classic film 'Gentlemen Prefer Blondes'. A lock of her hair as a child sits in a drawer for tourists to get a glimpse of. It is reported she experimented with 10 different blonde shades before deciding on her legendary platinum colour. Wolf says people will like the feeling of being inside the vault to see her things.

Japan - New discoveries in paper folding
 
02:49
T/I: 10:24:08 Anything made out of paper is generally thought to be structurally weak, but with skilful folding, paper can gain unexpected strength. The Japanese art of origami, or paper folding, has long been admired for its ingenuity, but this traditional pastime is now providing the basis for the foundation of a new technology. Two years ago, Professor Hideyuki Ohtaki, a teacher in mechanical engineering at Saitama University, and his students began conducting research into paper structures. They discovered that long triangular cylinders threaded horizontally through a collection of hexagons produced a strong structure that resisted twisting -- strong enough to hold the weight of a person. A tricycle made entirely out of recycled paper, using joints made from paper cups, was among the objects built to demonstrate the strength of their chosen material. With a fire and water resistant coating, paper could be used in unique ways giving it new options for the years ahead. SHOWS: JAPAN RECENT CU flimsy pieces of paper; Paper being folded into strong structure; Strong paper taking weight of apple; Exterior of Saitama University; Interior shot of researchers in meeting; SOT Professor Hideyuki Ohtaki: "Compared to metals, paper is extremely light-weight and easy to recycle. These advantages create various possibilities for the use of strong paper structures."

President Bush reacts to Obama's victory in 2008 election
 
03:51
SHOTLIST 1. US President George W. Bush walks to podium 2. SOUNDBITE: (English) George W. Bush, US President: "Good morning. Last night I had a warm conversation with president-elect Barack Obama. I congratulated him and Senator Biden on their impressive victory. I told the president-elect he could count on complete cooperation from my administration as he makes the transition to the White House. I also spoke to Senator John McCain. I congratulated him on a determined campaign that he and Governor Palin ran. The American people will always be grateful for the lifetime of service John McCain has devoted to this nation, and I know he will continue to make tremendous contributions to our country. No matter how they cast their ballots, all Americans can be proud of the history that was made yesterday. Across the country citizens voted in large numbers. They showed a watching world the vitality of American democracy and the stride we have made toward a more perfect union. They chose a president whose journey represents a triumph of the American story. A testament to hard work, optimism and faith in the enduring promise of our nation. Many of our citizens thought they would never live to see that day. This moment is especially uplifting for a generation of Americans who witnessed the struggles of civil rights with their own eyes; four decades later, see a dream fulfilled. A long campaign is ended and we move forward as a nation. Embarking on a period of change in Washington, yet there are some things that will not change. The United States government will remain vigilant in meeting its most important responsibility: protecting the American people. And the world can be certain this commitment will remain steadfast under our next commander in chief. There is important work to do in the months ahead and I will continue to conduct the people's business as long as this office remains in my trust. During this time of transition I will keep the president-elect fully informed on important decisions. When the time comes on January 20 Laura and I will return home to Texas with treasured memories of our time here, with profound gratitude for the honour of serving this amazing country. It will be a stirring sight to watch President Obama, his wife, Michelle, and their beautiful girls step through the doors of the White House. I know millions of Americans will be overcome with pride at this inspiring moment that so many have waited so long. I know Senator Obama's beloved mother and grandparents would have been thrilled to watch the child they raised ascend the steps of the Capitol and take his oath to uphold the constitution of the greatest nation on the face of the earth. Last night I extended an invitation to the president-elect and Mrs Obama to come to the White House and Laura and I are looking forward to welcoming them as soon as possible. Thank you very much." 3. Bush walks away STORYLINE: US President George W. Bush fully embraced the election of Democrat Barack Obama as his successor on Wednesday, paying stirring tribute to the election of the first U.S. black president-elect and hailing the campaign of change that led Obama to victory. Bush promised Obama his "complete cooperation" during the Democrat's 76-day transition to the White House. The president said he would keep Obama informed on all his decisions between now and January 20, and said he looked forward to the day - soon, he hopes - that Obama and his family would take him up on his offer of pre-inauguration White House visit. The defeated leader of his own party, John McCain, won accolades not nearly so glowing with Bush hailing his lifetime of service to the US.

So the Prime Minister of Turkey was not given that opportunity. He is after all the Prime Minister of Turkey and he wants to speak." (Question: And he was in his right to walk out and make a point?) "This is a different story. He is angry and I believe we are going to see him now." 13. Cutaway delegates ++MUTE++ STORYLINE Turkey's prime minister stalked off the stage at the World Economic Forum on Thursday after reproaching Israel's president over the devastating military offensive in Gaza. The packed audience, which included President Barack Obama's close adviser Valerie Jarrett, appeared stunned as Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Israeli President Shimon Peres raised their voices and traded accusations. Peres was passionate in his defence of Israel's 23-day offensive in Gaza, which it said targeted Gaza-rulers Hamas and aimed to stop Palestinian militant rocket fire into southern Israeli towns. As he spoke, Peres often turned toward Erdogan, who in his remarks had criticised Israel's strict blockade of the Gaza Strip. "Why did they fire rockets? There was no siege against Gaza," Peres said, raising his voice. The heated debate with Israel and Turkey at the centre was significant because of the key role Turkey has played as a moderator between Israel and Syria. Erdogan appeared to express a sense of disappointment when he recounted how he had met with the Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert just days before the offensive, and believed they were close to reaching terms for a face-to-face meeting with Syrian leaders. Obama's new Mideast envoy, George Mitchell, will be in Turkey for talks on Sunday. Erdogan was angry when a panel moderator cut off his remarks in response to an impassioned monologue by Peres defending Israel's offensive. The angry exchange followed an hour-long debate at the forum attended by world leaders in Davos. Erdogan tried to rebut Peres as the discussion was ending, asking the moderator, Washington Post columnist David Ignatius, to let him speak once more. "You killed people," Erdogan told the 85-year-old Israeli leader. "I remember the children who died on beaches." When moderator repeatedly interrupted, asking him to stop, Erdogan angrily stalked off, leaving behind fellow panelists United Nations Secretary-General Ban-Ki Moon and Arab League Secretary-General, Amr Moussa.

UK: MICHAEL JACKSON IN SURPRISE VISIT WITH AL FAYED
 
02:50
Natural Sound Thousands of shoppers at one of Britain's best-known stores were treated to a huge surprise on Saturday when superstar Michael Jackson arrived to look around. Crowds of curious onlookers amassed outside the front entrance of London's Harrods, caught a glimpse of the pop legend, when he arrived with Harrod's owner, Mohammed Al-Fayed. The pair then went to Al-Fayed's football team, Fulham, to watch Saturday afternoon's match. There were gasps as none other than Michael Jackson stepped out of the green vehicle to be escorted into the store by friend and store owner, Mohammed Al Fayed. The king of pop and Mr Al Fayed had flown into London's Stansted Airport together on a private plane from New York in the early hours of the morning. Jackson arrived for his store tour dressed from head to toe in a black embroidered suit, black boots and shoulder-length black hair, the only flash of colour the distinctive red and black armband on his right arm. Appearing shy behind mirrored sunglasses, he nevertheless smiled broadly as he toured the ground floor with Mr Al Fayed. Surrounded by a phalanx of security guards, the pair then made their way to the Egyptian escalator to visit the memorial to Dodi Fayed and Diana, Princess of Wales, situated in the store's basement. Jackson said little during the visit but when the ever-growing tour party paused in the perfume department to listen to Rhian William playing a large gold harp, he walked over and personally requested she play Greensleeves. Scenes in the store began to resemble the Pied Piper story as hundreds of fans formed a line snaking through the departments and Jackson occasionally waved as screams of "Michael, Michael" accompanied him wherever he went. The tour party moved quickly up to other floors, spending a lot of time in the children's department on the fourth floor. After both men had been embraced by one of the store's larger than life teddy bears, they made their way upstairs to the chairman's suite, where they prepared to leave for another pressing engagement. Thousands of fans of Fulham Football Club, owned by Al-Fayed, gathered at the West London ground unaware that the most famous man in pop was about to join their ranks for Saturday afternoon's game against Wigan. A brief walk around the pitch with Jackson wearing a Fulham supporters scarf, and then he and Al-Fayed settled down to watch the match. Fulham beat Wigan 2-nil - an extra cause for celebration for Fulham supporters.

Bruce Dickinson made honorary citizen of Sarajevo
 
04:26
(6 Apr 2019) BRUCE DICKINSON MADE HONORARY CITIZEN OF SARAJEVO Bosnia's capital Sarajevo has declared Iron Maiden lead singer Bruce Dickinson an honorary citizen Saturday (6 APRIL 2019). Mayor Abdulah Skaka presented the award in the City Hall, noting that the city is grateful for the heavy metal band's concert during the 1992-1995 war. He said that Iron Maiden's arrival to besieged Sarajevo in 1994 "was one of those moments when we in Sarajevo realized we will survive." Dickinson was thrilled to receive the honor. "In a world where things only last for about five seconds on social media, 22-23 years after we did a little concert in the middle of a war in a town that everybody seemed to have forgotten, people are still remembering it, that's really quite something." He then added jokingly. "I mean it is so important that I am wearing a suit. The only time I wear a suit is if they bury me in it."

(8 Jul 2016) DAVID GILMOUR RETURNS TO ANCIENT AMPHITHEATER IN POMPEII 45 YEARS AFTER PLAYING THE SITE WITH PINK FLOYD David Gilmour returns to ancient amphitheater in Pompeii 45 years after playing the site Pink Floyd. That performance was captured as a documentary. Gilmour played more than 20 songs, old and new, in front of a small crowd of less than 2000 people. The new songs were mainly taken from his new album "Rattle That Lock." The Pompeii amphitheater dates back to around 70 B.C. and was buried by the Vesuvius eruption in 79 A.D. When Pink Floyd played there in 1971, it was the first performance with an audience since the gladiators. Gilmour will play Pompeii on Thursday and Friday. He was awarded with the honorary citizenship. Gilmour had long planned to return to Pompeii and his touring Europe in various historical venues.

IAN SMITH TALKS ABOUT PRESIDENT ROBERT MUGABE
 
02:31
English/Nat XFA With the opposition trying to impeach him and his popularity at an all-time low, President Robert Mugabe has lashed out at Zimbabwe's white minority, threatening genocide trials for all who fought against him in the independence war. Mugabe told supporters on Wednesday that Ian Smith, the white leader he helped overthrow two decades ago, and all whites who fought against black guerrillas would face trials for war crimes. Speaking as he arrived for a debate in Oxford on Thursday, Ian Smith responded to these latest threats, saying Mugabe's actions belonged to a man clinging onto the last vestiges of power. He challenged Mugabe to set up a truth and reconciliation committee, saying that he had nothing to fear. Arriving at Oxford Union Thursday night, the former white leader of the former British colony of Rhodesia, Ian Smith laughed off President Mugabe's latest threat to put him on the stand. Mugabe is calling for all whites who fought against black guerrillas to face trials for war crimes. Mugabe has said the nation's 70,000 whites - less than 1 percent of the population of 13 million - mostly opposed his government and had spurned offers of forgiveness and reconciliation. Smith rejected Mugabe threat, saying that the blame for the violence lay squarely on Mugabe's shoulders. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Well he is the one who should be put on trial for genocide isn't he, Mugabe -- not Smith." SUPER CAPTION: Ian Smith, former Rhodesian Prime Minister SOUNDBITE: (English) "Well because he killed so many people, massacred them by the thousands, I mean Gurugundi and Matabeleland land, when he massacred 30,000 Matabeleles, I never remember massacring a single person in my life." SUPERCAPTION: Ian Smith, former Rhodesian Prime Minister Smith said Mugabe's belligerent style of government had forced him into a corner - one which had made him desperate and dangerous. SOUNDBITE: (English) "He is in a state of panic, he doesn't know whether he is coming or going, he is like a wounded animal in a corner, dangerous and unpredictable. So I don't know what to say or what to think, it is difficult." SUPERCAPTION: Ian Smith, former Rhodesian Prime Minister When asked if he feared a trial, Smith openly challenged Mugabe to carry out his threats, saying he had nothing to fear.

SUPERCAPTION: Ian Smith, former Rhodesian Prime Minister However, when questioned if he felt any responsibility for the current state of the economy in Zimbabwe, Smith said the blacks had actually benefitted under British rule. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Certainly not, the black community will tell you they lived better under Smith than under Mugabe, they were brain washed by a communist propaganda machine into believing that things were going to improve, sadly they were taken for a ride." SUPERCAPTION: Ian Smith, former Rhodesian Prime Minister He said that the only way to establish the truth of Mugabe's accusations was to follow in the footsteps of South Africa's truth and reconciliation commission. SOUNDBITE: (English) I've challenged Mugabe to set up a commission of truth and reconciliation similar to the one they had in South Africa. My word I think that would frighten him if he had to face up to that thing, I would welcome it."

Taraji P Henson talks about her engagement and how she met her fiance as Terrence Howard and Jussie
 
04:13
(15 May 2018) TARAJI P. HENSON: IT WAS LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT WITH FIANCE KELVIN HAYDEN Taraji P. Henson was all smiles Monday (14 MAY 2018) on the red carpet, basking in the glow of her recent engagement. The "Empire" star got engaged to former NFL cornerback Kelvin Hayden on Mother's Day. "I knew he was gonna pop the question because he all but told me himself. I just didn't know when. That surprised me. He just did it," said Henson, as she attended an annual event in New York where Fox promotes its new TV lineup to advertisers. The actress said she was introduced to Hayden by her makeup artist three years ago -- and it was love at first sight. "She was like, 'You need to go out. You need to meet somebody. You're too fly. You're too amazing.' I was like, 'I don't know.' She's like, 'You're not gonna meet him at home. You need to go out.'" The makeup artist arranged a party full of eligible bachelors for Henson to mingle with. "I remember I was like, 'You better show me the pictures of some of these guys because I don't want to embarrass you and I feel weird doing this anyway but I'm gonna do it," she recalled. "She kept showing me his picture and it was like a close-up and I remember I zoomed into his eyes and I was like, I felt a spark. And I was like, 'Wow, something about his eyes are so gentle.' And you know how they say you can fall in love at first sight from a picture? That's exactly what happened so when we got to the actual event, I met everybody, I shook all the other guy's hands and I literally was looking for him and when he walked up to where I was it was like people parted like the red sea, a light came on, I heard angels and he reached out to shake my hand and we danced and we talked and we were hanging out every day since," she laughed. Henson says her "Empire" co-stars are thrilled with the news. "Jussie came down to my room and screamed and did backflips. Terrence said some amazing things about my fiance today in interviews because he's known him since we started dating and he's just happy. They're all really happy for me," she said. Howard says Hayden must be special for Henson to choose to be with him. "Watching so many people try and court her and the integrity that she showed. She's always had a motto. I've never known any person that she's worked with that's ever been able to go on a date with her, you know, she's that secure about maintaining her integrity so for her to let Kelvin in I'm like, wow. That's a big move. That's a big move right there for her." Fox and other broadcast networks are presenting their new schedules to advertisers in New York this week.

Erdogan, in the region on a two-day visit, is meeting Palestinian leaders on Monday. He held talks with Israeli leaders on Sunday in an effort to repair strained relations with the Jewish state. In a sign of closer ties, Israel and Turkey said they would set up a hot line for instant communications on terror threats. On Monday morning, Erdogan, whose party has its roots in Turkey's Islamic movement, arrived at the disputed site in the Old City known as the Temple Mount to Jews and the Noble Sanctuary to Muslims. The site, which once held the biblical Jewish Temples and now holds Al Aqsa, is claimed by both Jews and Muslims. Erdogan was surrounded by dozens of Israeli security guards when he arrived at the compound. In his trip here, Erdogan, only the second Turkish prime minister to visit Israel, said he hoped to offer himself as a mediator in the conflict between the Palestinians and Israel.

That's a big part...that's what we do to each other all the time.

His way - Home Sinatra built from the ground up
 
05:27
(7 Dec 2015) LEAD-IN: It's best wishes and birthday greetings for Ol' Blue Eyes. December 12 marks famed late crooner Frank Sinatra's 100th birthday. The Rat Pack singer lived in various locations during his 82 years. His home in the Palm Springs Desert is now a popular rental property, frequented by music fans and Sinatra obsessives. STORY-LINE: Like so many things in his life, Frank Sinatra did it his way. The Twin Palms Estate, set among the Palm Springs Desert, is the only house Ol' Blue Eyes ever built completely from the ground up. Today, architectural historians say it's the personification of desert contemporary modernism. In 2011, it was designated as a Class 1 Historical Site by the City of Palm Springs. It's also a popular tourist destination, in an area once known as a playground for the rich and famous. According to William Sayegh, a member of the concierge team at Beau Monde Villas, Sinatra was attracted to the area and felt it was "his" spot in the world. The singer and actor commissioned the retreat at the height of his early fame after he made his first million dollars. He originally paid 150,000 US dollars for the air-conditioned desert property. It remained his primary home from 1948 till 1957. Sinatra named it the 'Twin Palms Estate' after the twin palm trees on the front lawn. They still remain there to this day. "One of the great aspects of this house is that Frank Sinatra bought the empty land and had the house built," says Sayegh. "And he was flying around in his plane looking for a site and saw the two twin palm trees in the backyard which are still here and decided this is where he wanted to build his house. He bought the two lots of land and built this wonderful estate with a swimming pool on one lot of land and the house of the other lot of land." Sinatra arrived in the desert town in 1947, with him he brought the allure and sex appeal of glamorous Hollywood. Soon Palm Springs became a jet set destination for Hollywood's royalty. Neighbours included comedian and actor Jack Benny, actor Cary Grant and singer Al Jolsen. The sprawling one floor estate boasts two addresses - the swimming pool and cabana are on one lot of land, the house on the other. Spanning 45-hundred square feet (4,180 square metres), the address boasts four bedrooms, seven bathrooms and a swimming pool shaped like a piano. Now operated by Beau Monde Villas as a luxury rental property, it's claimed to be the most popular destination to rent in Palm Springs. Architectural historian, Robert Imber, gets a kick out of the home's design. Specifically tailored to Sinatra's taste for Georgian architecture, he says. "He wanted a Georgian styled house. He was very knowledgeable of architecture - loved architecture apparently. They gave him drawings both for Georgian and for contemporary. The mid-century architecture, importantly, was simply the architecture of the day, the contemporary architecture of the day," says Imber, who is also the owner of Palm Springs Modern Tours. "He was then married to Ava Gardner, chose this, and lived here for a good number of years. When this house was built, it was in the middle of nowhere, open desert as far as you could see. There was a landing strip someplace nearby. You flew you're plane out, you looked for Frank's house in the desert and walked over for cocktails." The property's current owners have gone to great lengths to keep as much of the home as possible, they've even added some extra Sinatra memorabilia. Sinatra himself designed the master suite. Unique features include a piano-shaped swimming pool, Sinatra's original Valentino recording equipment, a self-playing piano and period furniture from the era. Sinatra and Gardner were married in 1951 and divorced in 1957.

NETHERLANDS: BRITISH & DUTCH SCIENTISTS MAKE FROG FLOAT IN MID-AIR
 
01:48
English/Nat British and Dutch scientists using a giant magnetic field have made a frog float in mid- air, and might even be able to do the same thing with a human being. The team from Britain's University of Nottingham and the University of Nijmegen in the Netherlands has also succeeded in levitating plants, grasshoppers and fish. Scientists at the University of Nijmegen in Holland have managed to make a frog float six feet (approximately two metres) in the air - and they say the trick could easily be repeated with a human. The secret is not magic but a powerful magnetic field which overcomes the force of gravity. The field makes the frog's atoms generate a weak magnetic force in the opposite direction. This causes it to be repelled in the same way as like poles of two magnets. Plants, grasshoppers and fish have been levitated by the research team in the same way. NASA, apparently, is extremely interested in the experiment in order to be able to test the effects of weightlessness on astronauts without having to put them into space. Easy, says team leader Dr Andre Geim. SOUNDBITE: (English) There is no problem with putting a man by this magnetic levitation, to fly in the air. Technically we can do it with you without any problems. SUPER CAPTION: Dr Andre Geim, Director of the High Field Magnetic Laboratory of the Catholic University of Nijmegen And for those worried about the effects on the frog - don't worry. He's not hopping mad - quite the opposite, in fact.

POLAND: KRAKOW: POPE JOHN PAUL II VISITS PARENTS' GRAVE
 
03:07
Natural Sound As his tour of his homeland draws to a close, Pope John Paul the Second has visited the tomb of his parents in Krakow. The pontiff also said Mass at the church where he gave his first service as a priest. And later in the day he visited a new heart surgery clinic that has been named after him. In what many believe will be his last visit to Poland, Pope John Paul the Second visited his parent's grave in Krakow on Monday. There is no mention of the pope, but people visit the tomb to pay their respects to his family, even when the pontiff is not in town. A choir sang as the 77-year-old kneeled before the tombstone and prayed. The simple, granite gravestone is engraved with the names of his mother, father and brother. Just 10 metres (25 feet) away are the graves of Red Army soldiers and a monument dedicated to their heroism in World War Two. The pope lit a candle in front of the tomb. Sprays of roses in the Polish and Vatican colours - red and white and yellow and white - decorated the modest tomb. The pope began the day with a private Mass in a chapel at Wawel Royal Cathedral, where he held his first service as a priest in 1946. Later in the day, he opened a new heart surgery clinic, that has been named after him. The pontiff met with recent transplant patients and told them he understood what they were going through first hand. The ageing pope has gone through a series of operations in recent years, including a hip replacement and removal of what the Vatican says was a benign colon tumour. Many Poles fear this could be the last visit for John Paul. But church officials suggested he may return next year, when he has been invited for the one-thousandth anniversary of the city of Gdansk on the Baltic coast. The pope returns to Rome on Tuesday after spending 11 days in his homeland.

UK: PRESIDENT MANDELA'S ROYAL WELCOME TO BRITAIN
 
04:01
(9 Jul 1996) English/Nat Britain is giving the red carpet treatment to Nelson Mandela, the man who smashed apartheid in South Africa. In Britain, on a four-day state visit, the South African President is being hailed as a hero. It's the first state visit to the country by a South African president. President Nelson Mandela's state visit to Britain began according to tradition. Met by the Princess Royal at London's exclusive Dorchester Hotel, the hero of apartheid was whisked off to Horse Guards Parade to inspect a guard of honour. At 12.40 pm local time, a Royal gun salute boomed across the capital as the President's limousine glided into the parade ground. The formal welcoming party, headed by the Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh, Prime Minister John Major and several top ministers, bore all the traditional pomp and ceremony befitting a visiting head of state. But the South African leader received a rather less formal welcome from the crowd. More than six-thousand people had gathered at the square - the largest turnout for a head of state's welcome since the birth of television. Chanting 'Nelson', 'Nelson', they waved South African flags and craned their necks for a view of the man who was once known as the Black Pimpernel. Britain's Queen Elizabeth appeared pleased to meet Mandela. She made a highly successful visit to South Africa last year, and clearly enjoys Mandela's company. The band of the Irish Guards played the South African national anthem, incorporating the last few bars of the old Afrikaans anthem, signifying the transition from old to new. On Horse Guards Parade, President Mandela, wearing a smart, dark business suit, inspected the honour guard. His walk was stiff, but he appeared as dignified as ever. Then he and daughter Zenani joined their royal escort to parade down The Mall in open carriages to Buckingham Palace. Later in the day, the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh gave a state dinner in Mandela's honour. The Queen Mother paid tribute to the South African President by attending her first Buckingham Palace state banquet in almost three years. The 95-year-old Queen Mother sat on Mandela's right. The Queen was on his left. The Prince of Wales, Duke of York, Princess Royal, and Princess Margaret were also present. As were Prime Minister John Major and senior cabinet ministers. In all, around 200 guests were assembled in the sumptuous Palace Ballroom. In her formal welcome to the guest of honour, Queen Elizabeth II stressed the close ties between Britain and South Africa. SOUNDBITE: Mr President, South Africa has a special place in my heart and in the hearts of the British people. Our two counties are bound together by history, by common interest and by ideals and aspirations. SUPER CAPTION: Queen Elizabeth II The Queen and Mandela then touched glasses in a toast to an even tighter bond between their two nations in the future.

UK: INDONESIAN VICE PRESIDENT HABIBIE SPEAKS AT BUSINESS LUNCH
 
03:10
English/Nat Indonesian Vice-President Bacharuddin Habibie says his government is committed to reviving the country's stalled economy -- but not at the cost of prolonged social instability. Habibie predicted the Indonesian economy would rebound within two to three years, but said the government would proceed slowly to avoid provoking social unrest. Habibie is in London for a two-day summit of Asian leaders and spoke to a luncheon of British business people on Wednesday. Indonesia's new Vice President Bacharuddin Habibie was greeted warmly as he arrived for his speech to London's business elite on Wednesday afternoon. Habibie is in the U-K for a two-day summit of Asian leaders. The summit is launching a trust fund to build grassroots financial expertise in Asian countries. And Indonesia is facing its worst economic crisis in 30 years. Habibie earlier held talks with Britain's finance chief, Chancellor of the Exchequer Gordon Brown. But he used his luncheon speech to ensure potential British investors that Indonesia's economy has bottomed out. SOUNDBITE: (English) "The fact is we are coming out of this problem and if we come out we will be even better than before because we are going to learn from our mistakes and also from other mistakes and the best thing to convince you that you have to change is if you have to face that problem and if you have to solve it and indeed time is money and because of that we are not allowed to waste our time." SUPER CAPTION: Habibie Indonesia is suffering from the worst economic crisis in 30 years. The currency, the rupiah, has plunged about 70 percent and inflation and unemployment has soared. Habibie ensured his audience that Indonesia's government is in the midst of revising legislation that has led to a chokehold on the economy, especially laws which relate to banking. SOUNDBITE: (English) "We are about to get the credibility back for our bank, our banking system is very dependent on the law that is controlling, say the bankruptcy law and controlling the supervision of the banking and banking system, and even supporting the bank of Indonesia to make it more stronger than ever. I'd like to confirm that we are just in the middle of doing that. It will happen and must happen in the near future." SUPER CAPTION: Habibie The world's fourth most-populous nation has already experienced widespread social unrest. Student protests have been gathering force and there has been scattered rioting over rising food prices. However, Habibie said the government was not prepared to act on improving the economy at any cost. SOUNDBITE: (English) "I think it will take two to three years before we are back again in full speed but the most important thing is in that we have in the next weeks or next months to come out from, what you call the, minimum, we are just coming back now. And I think the Indonesian government has committed themselves to bring it back. But of course without ignoring the existing Indonesian constitution. Otherwise, we cannot bring it back at all costs and get a social political instability. Its bad." SUPER CAPTION: Habibie Habibie's lunch was sponsored by the U-K's non-profit cultural exchange group Asia House. About 60 British executives attended the lunch at a London hotel.

Last Dacia coming off assembly line, "1959 - 2004" and total number produced written on bonnet, "last car" written on side in Romanian 14. SOUNDBITE: (Romanian) Girjeu, Dacia car engineer: "I feel deep emotion because I worked on the first car 45 years ago and now I have made the last car." 15. Manager signing car 16. People around car 17. Last car and new Renault Logan side by side outside factory STORYLINE: A period of Romanian history came to an end on Wednesday with production of the last ever Dacia 1300 car. The last car, the 1,959,730th vehicle to be produced by the French-owned company, rolled off the assembly line on Wednesday. The last traditional Dacia to be manufactured by Automobile Dacia Groupe Renault was a white Dacia 1300, a replica of the Renault 12. Renault forged a partnership with Automobile Dacia in 1968 during a thaw in communism, in an era when the average Romanian began to aspire to own a car. In 1969, production of the Dacia 1300 began. Romania shook off communism in 1989, and a decade later, Renault bought a 99.43 percent stake in the company. The car provokes mixed sentiments in Romania where it is maligned because it breaks down so often, yet oddly iconic. Factory workers and company officials scrawled their signatures on the car and a worker drove it out of the factory, and parked it in the yard. The last Dacia will probably be donated to a museum, a fitting end to a car which is equated with the birth of the modern automobile industry in Romania. The final 200 Dacias were sold on Tuesday. The car, which used to cost 70,000 lei, three years at the average salary, had a waiting list of two years. It now costs 4,200 lei (5,040 US dollars), the equivalent of 28 months of the average salary, and there is no waiting list. The company will now produce the new Renault Logan car, which will be exported to the Middle East Russia, and Eastern Europe and goes on sale in September. The company will continue to produce the newer Dacia Solenza, and Dacia utility vehicles. Dacia Groupe Renault says there are still an estimated 1.5 (M) million Dacias in the country of 22 (M) million people. Statistics mean little to many Romanians, who often give their cars pet names and practically consider them part of the family. But even those fortunate enough to acquire one had a tough time enjoying it: The late dictator Nicolae Ceausescu rationed gasoline, and the driving of cars was restricted on Sundays. Cars were allowed on the roads on alternate Sundays, depending on their license plate numbers.

Heated exchange as CEO of investment bank testifies, protest

(28 Apr 2010) TRUE DATE CREATED = 28-04-2010 1. Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein being sworn in for testimony at a Capitol Hill hearing, push in to Senator Carl Levin 2. Wide shot of Senate panel 3. SOUNDBITE: (English) Lloyd Blankfein, Goldman Sachs CEO: "The people who were coming to us for risk in the housing market wanted to have a security that gave them exposure to the housing market, and that''s what they got. The unfortunate thing, and it''s unfortunate but it doesn''t, is that the housing market went south very quickly after some of these securities, not all of them because some of them were done early, but they went. And so people lost money in it, but the security itself delivered the specific exposure that the client wanted to have." 4. SOUNDBITE: (English) Senator Carl Levin, Subcommittee Chairman of Homeland Security Committee: "You don''t believe it''s relevant to a customer of yours that you are selling a security to that you are betting against that same security. You just don''t think it''s relevant and needs to be disclosed. Is that the bottom line?" 5. SOUNDBITE: (English) Lloyd Blankfein, Goldman Sachs CEO: "Yes, and the people who are selling it in our firm wouldn''t even know what the firm''s position is." 6. Blankfein sitting before Senate panel 7. SOUNDBITE: (English) Senator Carl Levin, Subcommittee Chairman of Homeland Security Committee: "You are taking a position against the very security that you are selling and you are not troubled?" Blankfein: "Senator, again." Levin: "And you want people to believe to trust you?" Blankfein: "Senator I think people do trust us." Levin: "Why, I wouldn''t trust you. If you came to me and wanted to sell me securities and you didn''t tell me that you have a bet against that same security, you don''t think that affects my thinking?" 8. Wide shot of protesters in prison uniforms with Goldman officials'' names around their necks 9. SOUNDBITE: (English) Senator Claire McCaksill, Homeland Security Committee: ++starts on pan of witnesses++ "We have spent a lot of time going through all these documents, and let me just explain in very simple terms what synthetic CDOs are. They are instruments that are created so that people can bet on them. It''s the la-la-land of ledger entries. It''s not investment in a business that has a good idea. It''s not assisting local governments and building infrastructure. It''s gambling, pure and simple, raw gambling." 10. Witnesses seated at table 11. SOUNDBITE: (English) Michael Swenson, Managing Director, Structured Products Group Trading, Goldman Sachs: "We did not cause the financial crisis, specifically to the mortgage desk, which is what I''m here to speak about. You have two panels in subsequent meetings to speak about that, about the Goldman Sachs and our businesses. We, I do no think that we did anything wrong." 12. Mid shot of clerk taking notes STORYLINE: Defending his company under blistering criticism, the CEO of Goldman Sachs testily told sceptical US senators on Tuesday that customers who bought securities from the Wall Street giant in the run-up to a national financial crisis came looking for risk. Lloyd Blankfein and other Goldman executives were lambasted by lawmakers for "unbridled greed" in an often-electric daylong showdown between Wall Street and Congress - with expletives frequently undeleted. Unrepentant, five present and two past Goldman officials unflinchingly stood by their conduct before a Senate investigatory panel and denied helping to cause the financial near-meltdown that turned into the worst recession since the Great Depression. "Unfortunately, the housing market went south very quickly," Blankfein told sceptical senators. "So people lost money in it."

The royal was attending an event with Prince William, Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry, held for the young beneficiaries of their Charities Forum. As part of the celebrations, guests got to spend the afternoon on a Belmond British Pullman steam train - which features in the upcoming sequel "Paddington 2." Actor Hugh Bonneville, who reprises his role of Henry Brown in the new film, was also in attendance. The actor, also a star of "Downton Abbey," said it was "a great opportunity" to promote the "Paddington 2" and the royals' charities. It's a wonderful way to celebrate more than, I think more than 10 or 12 charities that the Royal Highnesses are supporting and for us to be able say Paddington is on his way again. So it's a great opportunity," Bonneville said, adding, "And also I get to eat marmalade sandwiches on the train." After meeting with some of the young passengers on the train, the royals returned to the platform where the pregnant Duchess was enticed in to a quick dance with Paddington Bear before the train departed on its journey. "Paddington 2" is released in the U.K. 10 November 2017.

And when I got the news that she had died in an accident I was completely devastated. So the fact that I come here now to say goodbye to her is very significant." 17. Cutaway Mandela meeting staff and members of the Spencer family 18. SOUNDBITE: (English) Earl Spencer, brother of Diana, Princess of Wales: "Well it's been a wonderful honour for my family, and for Diana too, and fantastic that such a respected statesman and humanitarian has come here to pay his respects to her. And we're just delighted that he's come it's been a long term commitment and it's finally been fulfilled and we're very very grateful to Mr. Mandela for coming here today. (Question: Would you like to say a few words about your reaction to the collapse of the Burrell trial) Not really." 19. Various Mandela leaving STORYLINE: Former South African President Nelson Mandela visited the grave of the late Diana, Princess of Wales at her ancestral home in Althorp on Friday. Mandela planted a tree in the grounds of the Northamptonshire estate and laid a wreath at the island burial site of the Princess of Wales. A temporary bridge was erected so the elderly statesman could have access to the island. Her grave is normally off-limits to visitors who can visit a memorial statue on a bank opposite the island. The 84 year old is visiting Britain to discuss a new charity project with Diana's brother Earl Spencer. He will outline proposals to combine the Diana, Princess of Wales, Memorial Fund with his own charity, which helps young people suffering from Aids in South Africa. Diana met the statesman for initial discussions about the idea five months before her death in August 1997. Mandela said that Diana had made a great impression on him and that the news of her death had been devastating. Spencer said that the visit of the former South African leader was a great honour for his family and the Princess. He declined to comment on the collapse of the Paul Burrell trial. Burrell, Diana's former Butler, had been facing a possible prison sentence for allegedly stealing personal items from the Princess of Wales. Prosecutors dropped the theft charges on Friday, explaining that Queen Elizabeth II had said he told her shortly after the princess's death that he had taken some of Diana's papers for safekeeping. Diana was killed in a car crash in Paris August 31 1997.

William, Kate, George and Charlotte spend Christmas with the Middletons

(25 Dec 2016) WILLIAM AND KATE SPEND CHRISTMAS WITH THE MIDDLETON FAMILY The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended a Christmas Day church service at St Mark's Church in Englefield, Berkshire on Sunday (25 DEC.). The royal couple is celebrating Christmas with the Middleton family in nearby Bucklebury, instead of with the Queen at Sandringham. They arrived at the church with Prince George and Princess Charlotte. Kate's mother and father - Carole and Michael Middleton - sister Pippa, and brother James also attended the service. A heavy cold kept Queen Elizabeth II from attending the traditional Christmas morning church service near her Sandringham estate in rural Norfolk, England. It is extremely rare for Elizabeth to miss the service, which is a cornerstone of the royal family's Christmas celebrations and brings the monarch into contact with local residents who gather outside for a glimpse of her.

UK QUEEN HOSTS JUBILEE LUNCH FOR SOVEREIGN MONARCHS
 
03:19
(18 May 2012) Britain has come under criticism for inviting the king of Bahrain, whose Gulf state has been engaged in a brutal crackdown on political dissent, to a lunch on Friday celebrating Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee. The lunch in Windsor Castle was the largest gathering of foreign royals in Britain since Queen Elizabeth II's grandson, Prince William, was married to Kate Middleton last year. Then, as now, the decision to extend an invitation to members of the Bahraini royal family has angered whose who are upset by the deadly violence deployed against demonstrators since protests erupted in the Gulf state. Bahrain's Crown Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa eventually skipped the royal wedding, saying he didn't want the controversy to tarnish the couple's happy day. But on Friday Buckingham Palace confirmed that his father, King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, attended the queen's lunch, along with some 45 other royal guests from around the world. The Foreign Office, which advised Buckingham Palace on the invitations, said that Britain's ties to Bahrain allowed UK officials to talk frankly with the strategic island nation's rulers about "a range of issues including those where we have concerns." Al Khalifa wasn't the only controversial guest dining at Windsor Castle. Swaziland's King Mswati III, who is accused of living in luxury while his people go hungry, also attended the lunch. Other guests included Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands; Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko of Japan; the Emir of Qatar Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani and Saudi Arabia's Prince Mohammed bin Nawwaf bin Abdulaziz al Saud. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry also attended the lunch. The Diamond Jubilee marks 60 years of Elizabeth's reign as Britain's monarch.

Other than that we have one or two there that have small issues about the food." 7. Various of serving line 8.

For feeding 5,000 people they do what they have to do. Yeh, mess is all right." 10. Various of people eating in the mess STORYLINE: It's always said that an army marches on its stomach and, of course, that's also how the navy sails. On the huge aircraft carrier the U-S-S Carl Vinson, feeding 5-thousand sailors is a daily challenge. The challenge for the catering crew is to provide plenty of quantity and variety, even if the ship is at sea for weeks on end. The USS Carl Vinson, which is launching bombing raids on Afghanistan from the northern Arabian Sea, has seven galleys ranging from the exclusive admiral's mess to the two huge eating areas for the enlisted men and women. You name it, they've probably got it: from machines dispensing root beer and pink lemonade all the way to an expensive cappuccino maker. The 140 cooks on board will fry up a hamburger, veggie burger or a grilled cheese sandwich. Then there are taco bars, salad bars, a pasta bar, bagels, and hot dogs. Many items are available round the clock. The crew gets four meals a day: breakfast, lunch, dinner and a late-night offering called "mid rats." That's short for 'midnight rations' and has nothing to do with the ingredients. The immense freezer can hold 120 truckloads of food. Its supplies include boxes of lobster tail and steak for a special dinner to celebrate the Navy's birthday, 226 years ago. The specialist mess chef, Moises, whose full name cannot be used under military ground rules, says all but a few seem happy with the results.

Insights into Princess Diana’s life behind closed palace doors from her former bodyguard Ken Wharfe.
 
07:50
(3 Aug 2017) INSIGHTS INTO PRINCESS DIANA'S LIFE BEHIND CLOSED PALACE DOORS FROM HER FORMER BODYGUARD KEN WHARFE Former royal bodyguard Ken Wharfe says his time working for the late Princess Diana was an enjoyable, if sometimes challenging role. Wharfe worked for the Princess between 1986 and 1994. Speaking fondly of the princess, he recalls how she would sometimes slip away from his protection. "It was a challenge, yeah, we had the slip occasionally, it wasn't deliberate, maybe sometimes it was, maybe in a fit of pique, maybe she did get fed up with me or maybe had a point to make, but that's part and parcel of the job which I enjoyed," he says. "I was very lucky to travel with her for eight years around the world in some extraordinary places, but that's one thing. What admired me more about Diana wasn't that, was the way that she seriously attracted herself to those that really wanted her to do something and she did come back to the office and did make something work and was genuinely interested, this wasn't a job of work just to tick the box, oh I've been to that charity, she made things work, made people feel special." Wharfe is a contributor to documentary, "Diana: In Her Own Words," providing commentary on recordings of the late Princess made by voice coach Peter Settelen at Diana's Kensington Palace residence in 1992 and 1993, just after Diana and Charles separated. The tapes were made to help Diana practice public speaking as she struck out on her own, and feature the late princess candidly discussing her personal life, commenting on their sex life, her fury at her husband's mistress and her love for another man. Diana Spencer married Prince Charles, heir to the British throne, in 1981 and the couple had two sons, Prince William and Prince Harry. They separated in 1992 and divorced in 1996, the year before Diana died in a car crash in Paris, aged 36. Charles married his longtime paramour Camilla Parker Bowles in 2005. In the recordings, Diana also describes confronting her husband and Parker Bowles at a party - a moment Wharfe says marked "the real beginning of the end" of the royal marriage. "She realized there was no chance of reconciliation," he said. "There was only one direction, and that was divorce." "This was the occasion of Camilla's sister's birthday and she and the Prince of Wales went to this party, which to me was slightly surprising, because Diana must have known this was going to be a difficult one, knowing that Camilla would be there, but that wasn't for me to say, I did my bit," he recalls. "We eventually confronted Charles and Camilla, who were sat on a sofa talking somewhere else in the house. Diana, remarkably calm, said to Camilla, 'Look, don't treat me like an idiot, I know what's going on' and at that point, Camilla said something really strange, which I said in the film, never really understood it, she said 'It's ok for you, you've got two wonderful boys'. Now I knew at this particular point, any chance of any reconciliation here was seriously out of the question and as I say in the film, this was then the real beginning of the end." Wharfe - who has a new book coming out on his time with the princess - says the documentary is a valuable reminder of Diana's role in "the reshaping of the monarchy." Her death unleashed a public outpouring of grief in Britain and around the world. The royal family, whose stoic reserve suddenly seemed out of touch, has since softened its stiff upper lip. William and Harry both campaign for more open discussion of mental health, and have spoken of their own struggles after their mother's death. "They are picking up exactly where their mother left off," Wharfe said You can license this story through AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/metadata/youtube/3d9dbd56aaf3f80c03aab18bbcc78514 Find out more about AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/HowWeWork

PAKISTAN: PRINCESS DIANA ARRIVES TO RAISE MONEY FOR CANCER HOSPITAL
 
04:56
English/Nat Britain's Princess Diana flew into Pakistan on Thursday to raise money for a cancer hospital, only to find herself accused of flirting and smack in the middle of a political scandal. The ex-wife of Prince Charles is in the eastern Punjab city of Lahore as the guest of cricket star turned politician Imran Khan and his wife Jemima. Diana stepped from the private Boeing 757 of billionaire financier Sir James Goldsmith with his daughter, Jemima and her six-month-old son Sulaiman. The former wife of Britain's Prince Charles was greeted by former Pakistan cricket captain, Imran Khan. Wearing a powder-blue shalwar kameez -- the traditional dress in Pakistan -- Diana looked cool despite the intense heat. Khan's wife Jemima seemed happy to allow her friend to remain in the spotlight of the world's press. Diana, who is the guest of the Khan's, is on a mission to help raise 27 (m) million dollars for her host's cancer hospital. It is her second fund-raising visit in as many years. That controversial visit led to critics at the time accusing her of trying to boost Khan's political career. His Justice Movement failed to win a single seat in national elections in February. But Diana's last visit remains controversial, with a Lahore socialite accusing her of having flirting with a waiter in Lahore in 1996. In Islamic Pakistan, where sex outside marriage is a criminal offence and many women do not venture outside the home without a veil, flirting is considered scandalous. Unperturbed by the accusations, which were making headline news in the local press, Diana toured Khan's Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Centre shortly after her arrival on Thursday. Khan, who led Pakistan's team to victory in the World Cup in 1992, set up the hospital in 1994 in memory of his mother, who died of cancer. He believes Diana's high-profile visit will have the donations flooding in. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Her (Diana) coming here and launching this fund mean we have a chance of collecting our 25 (m) million dollars. It gives us public-relationing, profile, we were able to because of her, invite the top donors in this country which we wouldn't have got normally." Q: How vital is it for you to get that money? A: "It is vital because it is very difficult to constantly keep raising money, eighty percent of patients are treated free. No government help and a hospital of this calibre an expense, especially a cancer hospital, we need an endowment fund otherwise we just cannot sustain this effort." Q: Bearing in mind what happened last year, have you been worried about her security and safety? A: Not at all, last year, I don't expect it to be the rule, and secondly the government has given her a complete state protocol, she is a state guest, OK." SUPER CAPTION: Imran Khan, founder of hospital, politician Diana will host a tea for hospital staff and top Punjab officials on Friday before returning to Britain on Saturday.

ZIMBABWE: BRUCE GROBBELAAR PLAYS FOR NATIONAL TEAM
 
02:53
Nat Sot Embattled goalkeeper Bruce Grobbelaar has taken his place in his country's team for the African Cup of Nations. It's his first major game since the allegations that he deliberately threw matches for bribes. He's playing for his home country of Zimbabwe, against Zaire. All eyes were on goalkeeper Bruce Grobbelaar when he ran out for his country in Harare Football fans in his home country of Zimbabwe were delighted to see their hero in his national kit. He was cleared on Saturday by the world football authority FIFA to play. FIFA came to the decision after examining a preliminary report by the English Football Association. The English tabloid newspaper "The Sun" alleged last week that Grobbelaar had taken bribes to fix matches, both for his former club - Liverpool - and for Southampton, the team he currently plays for. Earlier, FIFA had said it could ban the goalie if the F-A's report was damning. Since he arrived in Zimbabwe Grobbelaar has denied the allegations. And he added that they'd be unlikely to unsettle his game. There was a party atmosphere at the national sports stadium, with cheerleaders and a band. Some of the crowd chanted "Up with Bruce, down with Sun. The only pressure from fans in Harare is to stop any goals from Zaire and help Zimbabwe through to the next round of the African Cup of Nations. And in soaring temperatures, it was clearly thirsty work.

EGYPT: EU-AFRICA SUMMIT: MUGABE
 
02:32
English/Nat: British Foreign Secretary Robin Cook is set to confront Zimbabwe's President Robert Mugabe over the violent political turmoil gripping the former British colony. President Mugabe was due to lead the Zimbabwean delegation at a two-day E-U-Africa summit, getting underway in the Egyptian capital Cairo on Monday. The Zimbabwean and UK delegations will be seated close together in the conference room. Relations between the two countries have grown increasingly strained in recent weeks. British Foreign Office ministers have repeatedly condemned President Mugabe's failure to order his security forces to implement judicial orders to remove squatters occupying white-owned farms. And Britain voiced grave concerns when on Saturday brutal force was used against demonstrators protesting against the farm invasions. President Mugabe, for his part, has accused the British of colonialism and interference. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Well the U-K is trying to teach us how to run our country. Naturally we resist that. We do not accept - we are not a British colony any longer. We are not the only developing country with problems. There are many countries with problems. Zimbabwe is far better that the average developing country. You come to Zimbabwe and you will see. We are not a collapsing economy. We have difficulties at the moment but certainly we have a strong asset base and we will not collapse. But when we have difficulties, you see, Britain has no right at all to try and suggest to the rest of the world that we are a failure, nor have they a right to try and suggest to us what we should do. We are not an extension of Britain, we have said. So this is the main area of difference between them and ourselves". SUPER CAPTION: Robert Mugabe, President of Zimbabwe Britain's shadow foreign secretary Francis Maude has renewed calls for Zimbabwe to be suspended from the Commonwealth. But President Mugabe insists that if any country deserves to be sanctioned, it's Britain. SOUNDBITE: (English) "If there's any country that should now be considered for sanctions, it is Britain for interfering in the domestic affairs of Zimbabwe. Q:Britain also wanted to raise this issue during this summit. Do you think it's appropriate? "Well, the British have no standards, apparently, to guide them and if they do, they would be misfiring. And since I'm here I'll take care of them". SUPER CAPTION: Robert Mugabe, President of Zimbabwe The U-K is also concerned about threats by former guerrillas to instigate violence if the Zimbabwean government is defeated at forthcoming elections. Those elections were originally set for April but are now likely to be held in July. SOUNDBITE: (English) "The elections - we have been announcing the stages we are taking. We have a delimitation commission which is working on delimiting the constituencies. As soon as they are through we will announce a date. But we can announce a date before. But next month the elections should take place". SUPER CAPTION: Robert Mugabe, President of Zimbabwe On Sunday, at a preparatory meeting of European Union foreign ministers in Cairo ahead of the summit, Robin Cook proposed that the E-U should offer to send officials to monitor the elections to ensure that they are "free and fair" - a suggestion likely to infuriate President Mugabe. During those same discussions, Robin Cook proposed that the situation in Zimbabwe be added to the agenda for the next E-U General Affairs Council on April 10. Britain has drawn up contingency plans to evacuate up to 20,000 British passport holders from Zimbabwe, should that prove necessary.

Close-up of Nelson Mandela nodding STORYLINE: Former South African President Nelson Mandela beamed on Monday as he watched his grandson reclaim a traditional leadership post that Mandela had renounced decades ago to become a lawyer and dedicate his life to fighting apartheid. Mandla Mandela, 32, was draped in a lion skin, the symbol of royalty, and officially installed as head of the Mvezo Traditional Council by the king of the AbaThembu, Zwelibanzi Dalindyebo, one of six kings of the Xhosa people. The ceremony took place in front of hundreds of well wishers, including tribal royalty from across the country, most of them clad in brightly coloured traditional dress and beaded headdresses. It was the first time in nearly 70 years that a member of Mandela's family from the Madiba clan took up the mantle of traditional leadership. Dressed in a black and white animal print shirt, he walked with difficulty up the stairs but otherwise looked in good health and in radiant spirits as he delivered a short speech in Xhosa in a firm voice. "That will make me sleep forever being a happy man in my grave knowing that Mandla has taken this chieftaincy that I was supposed to have taken," said Nelson Mandela. Mandla Mandela's father Makgatho, Nelson Mandela's last surviving son, died in 2005 of AIDS-related complications. His mother, Rayne Mandela-Perry, said her late husband would have been proud to see his son carry on the family legacy. Mandla Mandela, who graduated from Rhodes University's political science program last week, now has the power to decide disputes and try certain criminal and civil cases.

SOUNBITE: (English) Walter Koenig, Father of Andrew Koenig: "Kishen phoned us saying that he found Andrew''s body. Maggie went to get Judith, her leg and back is in pretty bad shape and she can''t walk too far. And I went to the site. My son took his own life." 6. Cutaway of policeman listening 7. SOUNDBITE: (English) Walter Koenig, Father of Andrew Koenig: "The only thing I want to say is if you''re one of those people who really can feel that you can''t handle it anymore, you know, if you can learn anything from this it''s that there are people out there who really care. You may not think so and it may not, ultimately it may not be enough, but there are people that really, really care. And before you take that final, make that final decision, check it out again. Talk to somebody. And for those families who have members who they fear are susceptible to this kind of behaviour, don''t ignore it, don''t rationalise it, extend a hand." 8. Wide of media and police surrounding news conference 9. Wide of Bridle Path in Stanley Park 10. Area of brush off Bridle Path, corpse on ground 11. Trail with wood sign reading "bridle" STORYLINE: Former "Growing Pains" actor Andrew Koenig was found dead on Thursday in a wooded area of a sprawling downtown park in Vancouver, Canada, where he enjoyed spending time, apparently after committing suicide. The actor''s father, Walter Koenig, said "my son took his own life." Walter Koenig said his son was obviously in a lot of pain, referring his son''s lifelong depression. Constable Janna McGuiness, speaking at a news conference at the park, said foul play was not involved, but said she could not be more specific because the coroner was conducting an investigation. Andrew Koenig, 41, had a recurring role on the 1980s sitcom as Richard "Boner" Stabone, a pal of star Kirk Cameron''s character, Mike. The native of Venice, California, hadn''t been seen since February 14, while visiting friends in Vancouver. He was supposed to return home two days later. His parents reported him missing February 18, then asked the public for help finding him a few days later. On Tuesday, Vancouver police and three search-and-rescue teams looked for any signs of Koenig throughout Stanley Park, which covers more than 1,000 acres (400 hectares). Friends and family decided to try again on their own on Thursday and one of them found Koenig''s body near a marsh in a heavily wooded area about 100 feet (30 metres) off the Bridle Path. McGuinness said the body could not be seen from the walking path. The elder Koenig, who played Pavel Chekov on the original "Star Trek" TV series, was nearby when the body was found. Hours later, Koenig and his wife, Judith, issued the statement at a police station in the park. They said Andrew had been depressed, and had said earlier that he had given away his belongings and had been off his medication. They urged others who are having trouble coping to seek help. "If you are one of those people who can''t handle it any more, know people are out there who really care before you make that final decision," Walter Koenig said. "Talk to somebody." Koenig had said that his son had cleaned out his apartment in Los Angeles, a city where he felt he didn''t belong. Koenig did not know his son planned to move to Vancouver, which is what Andrew told friends before he disappeared. He came to love Vancouver after shooting a TV episode there, and once lived there for three years.

SOUNDBITE: (English) Haruki Murakami, Novelist and winner of 2009 Jerusalem prize: "After receiving notice of this award I asked myself whether travelling to Israel at a time like this and accepting a literary prize is a proper thing to do and whether this creates the impression I supported one side in the conflict and that I endorse the policies of a nation that chose to unleash it's overwhelming military power. Neither of course do I see my books subjected to a boycott. Finally however, after careful consideration, I made up my mind to come here. One reason for my decision is that all too many people advised me not to do it, like many other novelists I tend to do the exact opposite of what I am told, yeah..." (crowd clapping) 13. Cutaway wide of Murakami at the podium 14. SOUNDBITE (English) Haruki Murakami, Novelist and winner of 2009 Jerusalem prize: "I choose to come here rather than stay away. I chose to see for myself rather than not to see. I chose to speak to you rather than to say nothing. So please do allow me to deliver a message, one very personal message. It is something I keep in my mind, always keep in my mind while I am writing fiction. I have never gone so far as to write it on a piece of paper and paste it to the wall, rather it is carved into the wall of my mind. It goes something like this - between high solid wall and an egg (that) breaks against it I will always stand on the side of the egg. No matter how right the wall may be, how wrong the egg I will be standing with the egg." 15. Pan from Murakami at podium to crowd cheering 16. Murakami surrounded by fans and signing autographs 17. Close-up of autograph with pull out to show two fans holding up a Murakami novel 18. Murakami leaving, surrounded by cameramen and fans STORYLINE Japanese novelist Haruki Murakami was in Jerusalem on Sunday, to receive a prestigious award, despite threats by readers in his native Japan that they would boycott his books should he visit Israel. In remarks he made after he received the 2009 Jerusalem prize, Murakami said he had been "advised" not to visit Israel after its ferocious assault on the Gaza Strip. But he said he ignored the warning. "Like many other novelists I tend to do the exact opposite of what I'm told," he said, to raucous applause. On a more serious note the novelist added, "I chose to see for myself rather than not to see." He had thought long and hard about his decision, he told the audience, which included Israeli President Shimon Peres. "I asked myself whether travelling to Israel at a time like this and accepting a literary prize is a proper thing to do and whether this creates the impression I supported one side in the conflict and that I endorse the policies of a nation that chose to unleash it's overwhelming military power." Murakami had said in an earlier interview with Israeli newspaper Yediot Ahronot that his main criticism of the Israeli offensive in Gaza was over the vast difference in size between the two sides.

Cardinals arrive for discussions ahead of conclave next week

SOUNDBITE (Italian) Severino Poletto, Cardinal: "You have the patience of Job, really like Job. Good morning." 13. Cardinal Severino Poletto walks towards entrance STORYLINE Cardinals arrived at the Sinod Hall on Saturday for the last session of congregations after the date of the Conclave was announced for Tuesday 12 March. With the preliminaries over, Catholic cardinals are ready to get down to the real business of choosing a pope. And even without a front-runner, there are indications they will go into the conclave on Tuesday with a good idea of their top picks. Then it will be just a matter of agreeing on one man to lead the church and tackle its many problems. The conclave date was set on Friday during a vote by the College of Cardinals, who have been meeting all week to discuss the church's problems and priorities, and the qualities the successor to Pope Benedict XVI must possess. That said, there doesn't appear to be a front-runner, and the past week of deliberations has exposed sharp divisions among cardinals about some of the pressing problems facing the church, including governance within the Holy See itself. The Vatican spokesman, the Reverend Federico Lombardi, said the pre-conclave meetings had given the cardinals a chance to discuss the profile, characteristics, qualities and talents a future pope must have. Those closed-door deliberations, he said, provided an opportunity for discussion and information-gathering so the cardinals could go into the conclave ready to cast their ballots. Cardinal Sean O'Malley, archbishop of Boston, agreed, noting that without this week's meetings the conclave "could drag on." Then it's a matter of consensus-building in order to reach the two-thirds majority needed to elect a pope - a process that for the past century has taken no more than a few days. Benedict himself was elected on the fourth round of voting in 2005, a day after the conclave began - one of the fastest papal elections in recent times. His predecessor, John Paul II, was chosen following eight ballots over three days in 1978. On Tuesday, the conclave will begin with a morning Mass in St. Peter's Basilica, followed by a procession into the Sistine Chapel and the first round of secret balloting in the afternoon. If black smoke is sent snaking out of the chapel chimney to indicate there is no victor, the cardinals will retire for the day. They return on Wednesday for two rounds of balloting in the morning and two rounds in the afternoon, a process repeated each day, with occasional breaks for reflection, until a pope emerges.

Mandela's former jailer on Robben Island talks about his former prisoner
 
03:30
The former Robben Island prison guard who befriended Nelson Mandela during his time on the island prison described him as a "father" and "a person which you can look up to." Christo Brand was a young jailer when Mandela, who had already spent a number of years in prison, was assigned to his guard. Brand and Mandela developed a friendship over the years of Mandela's imprisonment on Robben Island. Mandela was sent to Robben Island prison after being convicted of treason. The anti-apartheid campaigner was sentenced to life imprisonment in 1964 for leading a campaign of sabotage against the government. Brand was his prison warder from 1978 until Mandela's release in 1990. "We as a country will miss him, I will also very much miss his voice. Even to see him on a regular basis, I will miss that a lot," said Brand on Saturday. The anti-apartheid leader died on Thursday aged 95. Brand expressed his wishes for Mandela's family and said, "I am thinking of the family today, what they go through." "All these arrangements they have made for the funeral, and I hope everything run very smooth, and then also that they are not fighting, the family, that they can reconcile, and everything is quiet and that everything will be done. Mandela would want to go out really as quiet as possible," he said. Brand recollected the leader's wish to be buried in his rural hometown, Qunu. "If his last resting place was Qunu, that's what he said to me, I say to Mandela, "We must bury you on Robben Island." Then he just laughed he said "Why?', I said, "For tourist attraction". He said, '(For) that you should have made money, but I think I must go to Qunu.' That was him making a joke," Brand said. The state funeral and burial for the Nobel Peace Prize laureate will be held in Qunu, in the Eastern Cape province, on Sunday December 15.
