3:41 am
that even those who could barely hold a tool in their hands went out to break up the ice seriously gullible you. leningrad became so clean it was a real joy to see it. in may the trans started working again. i will never forget this day i can't believe dad is gone. news of his death was too sad and. even today this morning we talked about him thinking he was alive remembering different things about him and we were happy that he looked relatively well. it turned out though that by then he was already gone. i cannot believe he's gone it can't be how i wanted to be a mistake it's hard it's terrible we didn't even say goodbye.

3:43 am
the recent between iran and the united states may potentially put to rest one of the most toxic and one sees in modern geopolitics a possibility that would arguably benefit many peace loving nation. but is this newfound goodwill at risk of being derailed and why is the character of the war sweeter than the chance of peace.

a pleasure to have you with us here on t.v. today i'm sure. my mom was very ill. but no one day dad said we were not going to the bomb shelter. that night there was incredibly heavy bombing. it was a direct hit on that very shelter and everyone was buried underneath here nobody survived more than. it was you people were too exhausted even to remove the rubble and it was so cold. the temperature was still certain degrees below zero. and it didn't get any better but
3:46 am
a few bird dome of the entire month of january february and march it was so cold thirty to forty degrees below should. we could never even at the fire go out water would freeze instantly. we took the sleds over to but prospect we put little buckets on to. the sled stands there was a hole in the ice close to the riverbank. although sometimes we went there to get water. it was easy to lose the buckets when we climbed back up the embankment but i gather of the water would splash over the rim of the buckets or. pulling those sleds was very difficult because the ground was completely frozen yellow a lot but still we kept going and taking those two buckets back home now we drag that water and use it to wash there was nowhere else to get it and.
3:47 am
the bombing is not as bad as the starvation and. i'm so then. starvation has caused mom stomach to swell she's in the hospital. i will not see her again. the doctors say she won't survive. my dear mom i can't leave you i don't want to live without you i'm all alone. mommy. the cellists i spent new year's eve of nine hundred forty three alone it was very difficult. we had three separate apartments joined by a long corridor but all of them were empty because everyone had been evacuated so i was alone in the three apartments stairwell you sit with all boards e.-l.
3:48 am
as it was dark because we had no electricity. no electricity no water. there was no heat. and we had no firewood either your mobile for. the worst has happened i am sick i can't stand up and i'm freezing they're breaking up wooden houses and leningrad outside it is thirty degrees below. inside it's only minus ten . water freezes in doors every day i go by tram to the demolished houses i just have the energy to carry a single small plank i'm not using the firewood just in case mom suddenly comes back. to use of course they let me see her in hospital yeah i went expecting to see her round puffy face which they saw you but i just saw a skinny woman saying she will my mom was my dear mom with that she looked so thin
3:49 am
line there. i'm so happy i have recovered i've been back on my feet for two days when i saw myself and the mare i was scared i saw a completely unfamiliar old and skeletal face i now look at least thirty but that doesn't matter even if i do look like a skeleton the most important thing is i'm not sick. comrades people of letting grads this siege of leningrad has been broken by the heroic red army soldiers have built a railway across our liberated country devolved astray as the railway workers will be arriving today with the first train from the heartland. january seventeenth one thousand nine hundred forty three the focus of the day the
3:50 am
siege finally ended when we heard the noise from our soldiers guns we were so happy . the siege took millions of lives. even now we don't know exactly how many. when the blockade was over. will people started sending in food from all over the country. i'm feeling better now i go to the alexander nevsky monastery to pick grass my make soup with it it's a pity there are no nettles in leningrad they're quite tasty we have bread now the only thing that upsets me still is the bomb it's more frequent now. will we stay alive. i even want to play my guitar again i just wish the bombing of leningrad
3:51 am
would stop. it but on the ship i was really scared by the air raid sirens isn't it they were lots of them but we should be anti aircraft guns fired a planes were flying and there was a lot who are all over the sea or it was terrifying and the sirens carried on and one after the other i have no idea how our soldiers and officers cope with all that . when the bombing is over a look to the sky i don't know if god does exist but i feel he's up there so. they say he doesn't exist but if you do please let my love come back down here to. look why i spent most of the seats on the rooftops. bus one like nobody told us to do that. but they were always dropping fire bombs though
3:52 am
so we had no choice but to get up there to save our hosts fergus would go. mom says i'm crying in my sleep i said that i was scared of the bombings i saw him in a dream wounded and then dead i saw his pale face and his blue eyes looking at me his lips room. right he's begging help me save me i'm waiting for him the genius cut short by a bomb. did it warrant the germans were shelling the city that way yes yes they knew the location of every tram stop i deal with so we had to move them every single day and yes they did added well they don't play in the us that we do they were firing at the trams tops in the same people who are going to work when the attack started there was no way to escape but it is different is that the shelling was quite far from the buildings around in the border and a sas. but the it was no cover to hide under the. so there
3:53 am
were plenty of casualties. they were firing at maternity homes he was. trying to target crowded places. they did that it were quite a long time. from leningrad today is the twenty seventh of january nineteen forty four our moment of triumph as a mass. grave the blockade is over we won we have survived i want to cry to cry with joy. mama survive to i miss my dad so much my dear dad we are alive how great it is to feel like i think and. today there will be fireworks people are exhausted but they will still take to the streets my dear dear diary he's alive he's returned from the front he's lost weight

3:56 am
we all know that. there is a great deal of monitoring of international communications a lot of this is directed to stopping and intercepting terrorist activity but i think that is legitimate and people people support that. the technology has run the political control exercised over it if the technology permits you to do something then people will do it. to do it and it's quite
3:57 am
we have perhaps. what is necessary for dealing with international terrorism and international crime areas where it is a question of. people's privacy is a problem we have to be dealt with videos of. good laboratory. building. mission to teach me. only. exactly what happened that day i don't know but a woman i killed. piers later is when i got arrested for. for a crime i did not do. we have numerous cases where police officers lie
3:58 am
about polygraph results. innocent people to confess to police officers don't beat people anymore i mean it just doesn't happen really. in the course of interrogation why because there's been this is lightman know because the psychological techniques are more effective in obtaining confessions than physical abuse and they were often they could get what they wanted they can say what they wanted and there was no evidence of what they did or what they said. choose your language. we can't you know if generals going to say sell some of us. choose to use the concerns you can. choose to defend against the degrading to. choose the stories that impact your life choose be access to your office.
3:59 am
this is obviously more for the ladies because it's a. women wanted to avoid rape they really needed to buy guns environ how to use them. this is the one that i want to go with but once you give us the feel for. definitely the target of the gun lobby one you don't kill them not one to kill anybody but if somebody were you with this with her. i'm noticing more and more is this really scary marketing tactics which implies that women have some sort of moral obligation to own guns to protect their family and young girls shoot out here too so we do have a pink or. more kids young kids choke on food than are killed by firearms if being armed made us safer in america we should be the safest nation on earth so we're clearly not the safest.
4:00 am
guantanamo bay faces a rising tide of opposition is the facility marks twelve years of scandal and scrutiny it's very easy and one ton of. new release. that you're not prosecute but the white times is unswayed saying gee process is a luxury you can do with acting keeping these men behind us it's hard to tell right now exactly how long we'll be down here doing this mission we report from inside guantanamo bay on the future of one of the world's most maligned prisons plus a visit here i'm in the homeland of more than half of the remaining inmates we focus on plans to build one town in my base excessive there and high detainees relatives give the situation. and up.
