and then as we 24 degrees on sunday. and then as we look ahead, sunday night, this is when rainfall will get particularly heavy across parts of northern ireland and western scotland, really mounting up, could see some localised flooding issues as we head oi'i localised flooding issues as we head on into the early hours of monday. through monday, rain sitting on the north—west, for the rest of the uk, dry, sunny picture, feeling quite summery out there, temperatures on the rise. humidity also rising with this south or south—westerly breeze. temperatures by the time we get to monday afternoon in the region of 28, 20 monday afternoon in the region of 28,20 9 degrees, down towards the south—east, even further north, scotland and northern ireland, 24, 20 five celsius. —— 28,29. high temperatures across germany, and those winds are drawing up towards the uk. we could see the all—time temperature record beaten in paris, 41 celsius, forecast through the middle of the week. all that warmth

lifting our way as well. next five days or so, some showers, dry in the south and south—east and temperatures 31, 32, degrees.
10:32 pm
hello, this is bbc news. we'll be taking a look at tomorrow mornings papers in a moment. first, the headlines. dramatic footage of armed iranian troops boarding a british—flagged oil tanker in the gulf. the foreign secretary called on iran to reverse the "illegal act." we are looking for ways to de—escalate the situation but we are also very clear that we will do what it takes to ensure the safety of british and international ships. all british airways flights to the egyptian capital cairo have been cancelled for a week as a security precaution. labour sets out plans to stop private companies providing council services in england.
10:33 pm
and exactly 50 years ago tonight, the first men set foot on the moon. hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are the broadcaster penny smith and columnist at the new european, and playwright, bonnie greer. i'm slightly anxious about this paper review. some of tomorrow's front pages are already in. the sunday times says eu countries are secretly wooing boris johnson in a bid to thrash out a new brexit plan that would avoid a no—deal. according to the sunday express, a group of remainer tory mps personally has told leadership contender borisjohnson that they will bring down his government if he pursues a no—deal brexit. the mail on sunday focuses on borisjohnson allegedly spending thousands of pounds of taxpayers' money on new furniture because his estranged wife has
10:34 pm
kept his belongings. the sunday telegraph reports that ministers are drawing up plans to target the iranian regime with sanctions after its forces seized a british—flagged tanker in the gulf. we'll we' ll start we'll start with boris johnson and the many many articles about him. the sunday times, stop no deal! secret deal to woo burris. five nations trying to dissuade him. or what you could equally say is on tuesday we've got a new prime minister, likelihood boris johnson, they are saying, what is going on? that could be the other way of looking at it. i know they all want something, they are saying the french, the german, the belgians, all the usual suspects are saying let's get together and there is the suggestion that maybe they should go down to chequers and have a jolly.” worry that the general public think
10:35 pm
this is a 1—page thing that gerrit sammy worked up and they can change it. it is this big. —— theresa may. this is 27 nations have had to do this. it is ridiculous and i think we throw around the term no deal, as if it was some sort of advertising slogan, but what it means there is i'io slogan, but what it means there is no trading deal with our nearest trading neighbour, which is a disaster situation. and nobody seems to think that is very serious. so many times concerns have been expressed about there being an ideal brexit but many people, they are not concerned about it. i've heard brexiteers sousse we have survived other things and we will
10:36 pm
survived other things and we will survive this, they will be a downturn and then we will all come about because we will get trade deals, despite the fact that they can take decades to sort out. by the other side is also true that perhaps, you know, we are getting very close to october the 3ist, we are going to have another extension at this break... but we never left before. no one has never done it. the wto head has already told us that whatever people are talking about relations to the wto, it actually doesn't exist. he has said that over and over. the 27 nations have said we aren't going back to the table, we can't go back to the table, they had said that over and over, and yet, that the sets this idea that somehow this is all going to work out because we've survived other things. i don't know what those other things are in relation to this. different times, won't they? i would like to talk to you at
10:37 pm
they? i would like to talk to you at the headlining mail on sunday. new bedford burris and the taxpayer. if he is going to move into number ten, he is going to move into number ten, he needs somewhere to sleep. he can't sleep in green park. i would suggest horse guards. but if he doesn't have a bed, the guy doesn't have a bed, how is it going to... that cameron is moved in, and all they asked for was 30 grand and the rest of it they funded themselves. and his wife has kept the bed. mps get all sorts of money for furnishing second homes. what is the difference? these days, people would look askance at somebody who earned 130 grand since he left the foreign office, from his variousjobs, speaking, doing the telegraph and the rest of it, many people will be
10:38 pm
saying he should be able to afford his new furniture. also to put on his new furniture. also to put on his front page that it is a bed, thatis his front page that it is a bed, that is the gross part of this whole thing. let's move on. the sunday times revealed, home office in cash for passports scandal. if you are rich, you can do macro what is the news here? well, the news is that they have said... it's always been this way. but i did try to sort it out, in december they suspended for a bed... december of 2018? they briefly suspended the scheme in december because they were concerned it was being abused by organised crime gangs and there was a u—turn because the treasury said it should because the treasury said it should be reinstated. the sunday times and channel 4 dispatches, advisers told an undercover reporter that they had
10:39 pm
this secured visas for a member of the gaddafi family, he had —— the thing is what they are saying is what they are doing is slightly not actually telling, saying whether they've got links to vladimir putin to the chinese military. there's always been golden visas for someone or something, it's always been that way. may in the news it's they suspended it and they brought it back in. but it's always been that way. the person who might have to sort this out is mentioned in the independent. johnson lives up to tell to beat next home secretary. new pm is not a british drum. how so? how so with priti patel? how does it work? what does that mean? that she is not white? well, there
10:40 pm
isa that she is not white? well, there is a woman in one of the great offices of state, which is... and she's a of colour? is that what that is about, the headline? they are saying... who is going to go where. sajid javid is going to be chancellor, and penny mordaunt for home secretary, and so who knows? we have no idea what is going on. they'll be in and out, shuffled on beds,... more than likely. trolleys. because we don't want to pay for bed. you would call it a gurney. i would, or even a trolley.” bed. you would call it a gurney. i would, or even a trolley. i thought a gurney was one of those things that came down from the ceiling. no, in hospitals, they are gurneys. you don't watch enough pr, or grey's anatomy, did you? i do,
10:41 pm
don't watch enough pr, or grey's anatomy, did you? ido, it don't watch enough pr, or grey's anatomy, did you? i do, it is my antidote to all of this. back to the sunday times, ministers took our eye off the ball over iran threat, then we have that picture of the moment those iranian masked men descended onto that british flagged vessel. how scary. this is an example of how everything is ground to a shuddering, screeching halt at westminster because of brexit. how is this to do with brexit? mps have talked about the fact that there has been no business, no discussion of anything because of what is going on with brexit. so, this is... there have been eyes taken off of the ball and all sorts of things. that's what ministers are complaining about. this kind of thing doesn't happen behind your back. there are all kinds of signals and a that things are coming down. we know there has been trouble brewing with a run for months because trump has studied up.
10:42 pm
but also because in gibraltar, we stopped their boat which was carrying... but we should have been his sons for the position and now the problem is we are not. but that was stopped, wasn't it? that was stopped because it was on it's way to syria but there was a comment by admiral lord west who is a former first sea lord, admiral lord west, and he is saying, we are essentially saying gunboat diplomacy without the gunboat. this has exposed the desire thatjeremy hunt was saying that if he were to become prime minister he would make sure there was more money for the hardware that they may be needed. too late. in relation to this. and saying it is someone who was not brought up in this country, great britain but my position in relation to this country in the united states, it has always been in the middle, pretty much bouncing,
10:43 pm
talking, doing diplomacy, back and forth, we are now stuck in a position where trump is running the show, what is the uk going to do? we we re show, what is the uk going to do? we were asked whether we wanted to join the navy is... by the united states, and they said, we look a bit too aligned with them. sunday telegraph. the hair. do you mind if we move on? sunday telegraph. gust of care for relatives doubles in a decade. people having to sell their homes after a royal commission some time ago said that shouldn't be happening. it does feel like all these stories, almost they don't feel like news stories. chickens coming home to roost, in a way.
10:44 pm
councils haven't got the money. we are all living longer and that is a wonderful story, but as we do live longer, they are ailments, things, and no country, notjust this country, no country is prepared for an ageing society. this is an ageing society. the average age is 42. so we have to be prepared, and we are not prepared, to take care of all of us as we are not prepared, to take care of all of us as we are getting older. maybe we should get more golden passports. well, nobody wants to say that because they are too scared to say it. what with amazon and google... there is a big crippled out recently about social care, saying there needs to be a huge injection of cash but there also needs to be a separate pot of money for it. but integrated. we've got three time bombs. we've got the older generation, we've got very, very new young people being born, a bit baby
10:45 pm
boom that is eight or nine years old man, we are not ready for them either. in between, they are the ones who have to carry the burden and we don't have enough people there to do it. and now we have brexit so we are going to have even less people. let's finish with a cartoon. pre—empting who might be in number ten by the middle of the week. he was the postman arriving at the ministry of defence and he says... i thought it was four when he loses hisjob. i give him 100 days. i thought it was four when he loses his job. i give him 100 days. do you think he will trash the car? he's got umpteen parking tickets. and all the mess inside. what will happen to the mess inside. what will happen to the bench? will there be enough time for a refund? they can auction it or leave it in green park. put it out
10:46 pm
for the turner prize. the messy bed. that said that the papers this hour. we'll do it again at 11:30pm, and penny and bonnie will be back again and! penny and bonnie will be back again and i will try and stay in control. don't forget we are online. if you missed the programme this evening, you can watch it again on bbc iplayer. coming up next, it is the film review. hello and a very warm welcome to the film review on bbc news. taking us through this week's cinema releases, mark kermode. hello. hi.
10:47 pm
mixed bag this week. we have tell it to the bees, which is a new british drama. we have the lion king. is it live—action or animation? and varda by agnes — a film maker looks back on her life and career. let's start with tell it to the bees, which is adapted from a book by fiona shaw which i confess i have not read. i know you have seen the film... i have not read the novel either, actually. we are both working on just the basis of the film. holliday grainger is lydia, who is raising her son on her own in rural scotland. she finds herself homeless, and this new doctor — actually, returning doctor, jean, played by anna paquin — offers her a housekeeper because she doesn't have anywhere else to live. so she moves in, and the two women become very friendly. this kind of story is seen through the eyes of the young son. in the beginning, there is a voiceover of what did he see, what didn't he see? he becomes particularly fascinated by the fact, in the garden there is a hive of bees, and he's really interested in the way in which the bees live together in their society,
10:48 pm
and he is told by anna paquin's character, you tell your secret to the bees, which i think is where the title comes from. the bees sort of seem to serve a larger role which is both mirroring and, in some cases, actually moving on the story. here's a clip. oi, oi! get off! oh, it's on me! get it off me! stay still. no. we mustn't. what did you do to the bees? no, nothing, i, erm...
10:49 pm
so... and this is the ‘505. it's a period drama but i do think it still has some relevance, because it talks about some pretty tough subjects. it talks about homophobia, it talks about racism, it talks about domestic abuse. it does all of those things quite frankly. it is sort of upfront about them. there are a couple of scenes in the film that did make me wince because they are kind of tough. my problem is this. i didn't that it's very well—intentioned, and i think it's solidly played. i'm not entirely sure that, on the screen, the bee metaphor works, because up to a point, there is this idea of the discussion, you're telling your secrets to the bees, the hive mind. it's fine. there are moments, however, in which the bees to start to play an active part in the narrative, in which i did think this is falling apart... it was a bit peculiar, that point, wasn't it? the bee element was quite lovely with the little boy at the beginning, and then towards the end, you think,
10:50 pm
not sure where this is going! the more it was kind of happening in the background, as a counterpoint to the main story, the better it worked. when it actually became part of the story, it was less successful. that said, i think its heart is in the right place, and i think it is at least striving to tell a story in an adventurous way. i would rather watch something try to do something and fail then just simply play it safe. i think some of the performances are not quite as great as they perhaps ought to be, i think that's partly due with actors wrestling with accents which are not their own. yes, i agree. i kind of wanted to be... i wanted to be better! but i think there are still things, and there are individual moments in it which i think, oh, they work really well. individual moments of real electricity and spark, and kate dickie's in it, and i love kate dickie in absolutely everything. she is fantastic. she is flinty in this for them. very, very stern. she is aggressive and we don't mess with her. no, you don't. the lion king. why? why is it being remade?
10:51 pm
explain. well, i think the most obvious reason, live—action disney remakes are making a tonne of money. they are doing really well. in the case of this, this is kind of billed as live—action. it is not live—action. it is animated. everything you're saying on the screen is animation. the whole thing is done in a virtual reality environment in which the cameras are moving around in virtual reality but it is all completely computer—generated. it's photorealist animation. and what this does is, you can create a photoreal version of an antelope or a lion, or a lion cub. the only thing is, they look like real animals but they are talking in singing, and i have a slight conceptual problem with this. if you see a cartoon talking and singing, it is fine because you understand. if you see the stage production of the lion king, your mind is filling some of the gaps. you cannot fault it technically. it is breathtaking. the environment is the best sort of realised environment on screen you can possibly imagine,
10:52 pm
but it is... it's like a david attenborough documentary, and they're all singing. it's just weird! i am personally a great fan of old, traditional animation. i never watched an old animated film and thought, i wish it was more real. this is something very new and it is kind of ground—breaking. this is real cutting edge stuff, and it's made byjon favreau, who made jungle book, which did have a human character. it is very strange. i am not entirely convinced by it. our third choice this week. people might think they would only like if they're obsessed with cinema! i don't know anyone like that! this is varda by agnes. it's agnes varda's final film, looking at her life, her extraordinary career. she's talking sometimes to an audience, sometimes she's talking to the camera, and so we get clips from her films. we get encounters of people
10:53 pm
who remember working with her, and how tough she was. when you see the film, what comes across as her generosity of spirit, her enthusiasm forfilm, her enthusiasm for the medium and also her great love of beaches. and she says this thing about "a beach is the opposite "of a wall," which is a phrase which wins me over. here's a clip. it's so enchanting, and i did not actually expect to be enchanted,
10:54 pm
but there's something really... did you think it was going to be hard work and sort of...? i thought you would have to be really, super knowledgeable about her work to get some thing out of it, and you don't have to, because i am not. and yet, she is delightful to listen to. it shows you just as much as you need of the clips to make you think, i want to see that film — particularly the robert de niro film. she said, it's so great i got robert de niro. the film flopped, but it doesn't matter — i got robert de niro for a day! she says this thing about all film—making comes down to three things, and it's inspiration, creation and then sharing. inspiration is where the film comes from, creation's how you make it and sharing is showing it to the audience. and i love the fact she loves cinema, but she loves the audience
10:55 pm
engaging with the cinema. she does these artworks, installations — did, her final film — and what you get from this is a portion of somebody, her enthusiasm, her intelligence, her empathy. i thought the film was great fun. there's many laughs in it. it's really funny and playful and witty. i thought it was really, really charming. it is an absolute delight. best out this week? i really, really love only you, which is the debut feautre by harry wootliff. i think she has done a greatjob of telling this story. about a relationship between two people, a slightly younger man, a slightly older woman. the woman thinks that their relationship is going to be unbalanced, out of sync, but he is the one who thinks, i think we should start a family. it is about what happens when something which is an idea turns into a demand. i think it is brilliant. i love the performances. fantastic, yes. it feels so intimate! and so honest! i absolutely believed in the characters! you loved it, too, right?
10:56 pm
yes. not quite as much is you, and we don't have time to explain why, but i thought the performances were fantastic. fabulous, fabulous. fantastic. captain marvel. i've watched it! this will surprise you. captain marvel, i did. i married someone who loves superhero movies. what was their verdict on it? she loved it. i loved it for about two thirds of it and then went, oh, is it still on? it felt a little bit long. when it came out, a lot of people saying, it cannot work, it has not enough blokes in it. and how dare they! and of course, it's been a runaway success. the reason i've chosen it on dvd is, i want to see it again. in cinema, i thought it was fine. i felt the same thing as you. two—thirds of the way... but i want to see it again because it's been such a runaway hit. i think there's stuff in there that i probably missed first time around. brie larson was good. brie larson is great! i think brie larson is really good, and i think she's got a great sense of humour as well. thank you very much. see you again soon. that is it for this week.
10:57 pm
see you next time. bye— bye. you probably heard we have got hot weather on the way. things will be warming up over the next few days, also drying up for some of us, we had big shower clouds around on saturday, fewer showers on sunday, spells of sunshine for many of us but it won't be dry for everywhere. rain at liming in the north west later on sunday. starting off, warm from the word go, dry wit sunshine, lighter wind than on saturday but the winds will pick up across northern ireland in the west of scotla nd northern ireland in the west of scotland ahead of some rain working in here. wet weather reaching west of scotla nd in here. wet weather reaching west of scotland through the afternoon. much of east scotland england and wales state dry and sunny and
10:58 pm
temperatures for most of us 20 to 25 degrees with high teams ireland in western scotland. the rain will affect the final day of the open. dry through the morning but increasing amounts of cloud, the rain setting in through much of the afternoon. as we had three sunday evening and overnight into monday, that rain in the north—west becomes heavy. rainfall amounts mounting up particularly in the west where there may be localised flooding. humid night to come with temperatures hovering in the mid to high teens overnight. monday morning starts off onafairly overnight. monday morning starts off on a fairly hot and humid note from the word go. the showery rain in the north will push northward so improving for northern ireland and northern england to. much of england and ireland sunny and hot all day, scotla nd and ireland sunny and hot all day, scotland are they cloudy with further rain towards the north—west. temperatures on monday between 23 and 29 degrees for most of us and it
10:59 pm
will warm up significantly as we look towards the middle part of the week so we have real heatwave conditions building across parts of continental europe. very high temperatures and with the wind is coming in from europe it is going to be feeling very hot. in paris, we could break the all—time record with temperatures potentially reaching 41 celsius during the middle part of the week. not quite as hot here. some showers in the north, in london, 33 possibly 34 celsius. goodbye.
11:00 pm
this is bbc news. i'm martine croxall. the headlines at 11: as dramatic footage emerges of armed iranian troops boarding a british—flagged oil tanker in the gulf, the foreign secretary called on iran to reverse the "illegal act". we are looking for ways to de—escalate the situation, but we are also very clear that we will do what it takes to ensure the safety and security of british and international ships. all british airways flights to the egyptian capital cairo have been cancelled for a week as a security "precaution". labour sets out plans to stop private companies providing council services in england. their hearts are broken! england wilt under pressure — narrowly losing in the world cup semi—final to new zealand.
