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.

Mugabe's address to Earth Summit
 
03:37
1. Various Zimbabwean president, Robert Mugabe, walking onto stage 2. SOUNDBITE: (English) Robert Mugabe, President of Zimbabwe: "Your excellencies we must examine why 10 years after Rio, the poor remain very much with us - poorer and far more exposed and vulnerable as ever before. Our children suffer from malnutrition and diseases, compounded by the deadly HIV-AIDS endemic. The betrayal of the collective agenda we set ourselves at Rio is a compelling manifestation of bad global governance, a lack of real political will by the north and a total absence of rule of law in international affairs." 3. Cutaway 4. SOUNDBITE: (English) Robert Mugabe, President of Zimbabwe: "Indeed, ours is an Agrarian economy, an imperative that renders the issue of access to land paramount. In our situation, Mr. President, this fundamental question has pitted the black majority who are the right holders and therefore, primary stakeholders of our land, against an internationally well connected racial minority, largely of British descent, and brought in and sustained by British colonialism, now being supported and manipulated by the Blair government. We have said, even as we acquire our land, that we shall not deprive white farmers of land completely. Everyone of them is entitled to at least one farm - more than one farm indeed. Fifteen, twenty, thirty-five farms, one person. These are not figures I am getting out of my mind. They are real figures. So no farmer is being left without land." 5. Cutaway audience 6. SOUNDBITE: (English) Robert Mugabe, President of Zimbabwe: "Let no one who is negative want to spoil what we are doing for ourselves, in order to unite Africa. We belong to this continent. We don't mind having and bearing sanctions banning us from Europe. We are not Europeans and we have not asked for any inch of Europe, or any spare inch of that territory. So Blair, keep your England and let me keep my Zimbabwe." 7. Cutaway audience 8. SOUNDBITE: (English) Robert Mugabe, President of Zimbabwe: "People must always come first in sustainable development and later Africans come first in the development of Africa. Not as puppets, not as beggars but as a sovereign people. Thank-you." STORYLINE: Speaking at the Earth Summit in South Africa on Monday, Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe attacked British Prime Minister, Tony Blair, telling him to stop interfering in Zimbabwean affairs. Mugabe told gathered world leaders at the Earth Summit in Johannesburg, "Blair, keep your England and let me keep my Zimbabwe." During his speech, Mugabe also defended his government's land reforms. He said white farmers in Zimbabwe were "an internationally well connected racial minority, largely of British descent, and brought in and sustained by British colonialism, now being supported and manipulated by the Blair government." The British Prime Minister was not in the hall during Mugabe's speech.

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.

ITALY: MILAN: INTERNATIONAL CELEBRITIES PAY FINAL RESPECTS TO VERSACE
 
03:45
Natural Sound The "Who's Who" of high fashion and showbiz said goodbye to their colleague and friend Gianni Versace on Tuesday. Britain's Princess Diana, supermodel Naomi Campbell, singers Elton John and Sting and designers such as Giorgio Armani and Valentino were among the more than two- thousand mourners who joined a memorial service at the Duomo cathedral in Milan. Fashion guru Versace was gunned down on 15 July in front of his mansion in Miami Beach in Florida - his brutal killing sent shockwaves through the world of glitz and glamour. Surrounded by security guards, rock star Elton John arrived at Gianni Versace's downtown palazzo in Milan on Tuesday. He joined friends and colleagues of the murdered designer who had come from all over the world to pay their last respects to the designer. In the palazzo's courtyard, the mourners filed past the urn containing Versace's ashes which sat on a simple altar. Naomi Campbell - Versace's favourite model - had flown in from South Africa - she arrived carrying a single white rose. Versace's sister, Donatella - who has vowed to carry on Gianni's empire with her brother Santo - was on hand to greet the mourners. As a host of international celebrities came and went, crowds of spectators formed outside the building in Milan's exclusive Via Montenapoleone design district. Later in the day, the mourners attended a memorial service in Milan's Gothic Duomo Cathedral. The celebrity-filled service might have resembled a night at the Oscars, except there was no glitz, only grief. Many wept openly. The mourners included Britain's Princess Diana, supermodels Eva Herzigova, Valeria Mazza and Carla Bruni, choreographer Maurice Bejart and many others. Perhaps one of the greatest tributes to Versace was the turnout of so many of his fashion colleagues, despite past rivalries on and off the runway. Carla Fendi, Karl Lagerfeld, Valentino and arch-rival Giorgio Armani sat in a row behind the Versace family. They were united in mourning the loss of one of the main contributors to the success of the "Made in Italy" label. At one point during the highly emotional service, Elton John broke down in tears and had to be comforted by Princess Diana. The sombre mood in the Milan Cathedral reflected the atmosphere throughout the world of fashion. All of Versace's followers, many of whom loved to flaunt his bright colours and sequinned fabrics, wore black. As relatives and stars comforted each other, Elton John and Sting performed a mournful rendition of Psalm 23 "The Lord is my Shepherd". It brought many of the celebrities and other mourners to tears. Versace's sister Donatella and brother Santo were overcome by grief as the cathedral filled with music. Versace's murder on the steps of his Miami mansion last Tuesday sent shock waves through the world of fashion and showbiz. Those who mourned his death were still struck with disbelief. As the star-studded congregation descended the cathedral, a sombre mood hung over the city of Milan. A few blocks from the cathedral, shops in the heart of Milan's fashion district had closed during the service in tribute to the slain designer.

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."

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.

USA: OJ Simpson Trial: Prosecution Closing Argument - 1995
 
02:45
One year after jury selection began in the OJ Simpson double murder trial, Prosecutor Marcia Clark began her closing argument, describing the "mountain of evidence" the prosecution has gathered against the former football great. Clark, apologetically, commended jurors for their unselfish service on the panel and hurriedly distanced herself from the notorious Detective Mark Fuhrman. SOUNDBITE:"Having said that Miss Clark is the prosecution on behalf of the people ready to proceed there opening argument?" Clark: "Yes your honor we are." Ito: "You may preceded." Clark: "Good morning ladies and gentlemen." SUPERCAPTION: Judge Lance Ito Marcia Clark, Prosecutor. The beginning of the end for the eight month long murder trial of famed defendant OJ Simpson as Prosecutors begin their closing arguments Tuesday in Los Angeles. The court was packed with family members of both victims and the defendant in attendance. The prosecution has hinted they will spend at least two days restructuring their "mountain of evidence" case against the Simpson accused in the deaths of his ex-wife and Ronald Goldman. Clark first..apologetically thanked jurors for dedicating nearly a year of their life in pursuit of justice. SOUNDBITE: "I want to take the opportunity to thank you and I want to thank-you from the bottom of my heart you have been through so much you have made a tremendous sacrifice you haven't seen your children enough you haven't seen your family enough you haven't seen your loved ones enough and all this in the name of justice and the service of justice you dedication and unselfishness are truly beyond the pale no one can say that any jury has sacrificed more for the cause of justice than you have and I want you to know sincerely from my heart I appreciate it." SUPERCAPTION: Marcia Clark, Prosecutor. Clark then quickly distanced herself from Detective Mark Fuhrman-the discoverer of a bloody glove on Simpson's estate-and proven racist. SOUNDBITE: "And let me come back to Mark Fuhrman did he lie when he testified about not using racial epithets in the last 10 years yes.....is he a racist yes..is he the worst LAPD has to offer yes do we wish this person was never hired by LAPD..yes should LAPD ever hired him no should such a person ever been a police officer no in fact do we wish that there was no such person on the planet yes." SUPERCAPTION: Marcia Clark, Prosecutor. Clark later said despite LAPD's mistakes and blunders her sides case has been proven beyond a reasonable doubt: Simpson butchered his ex-wife and Ron Goldman. SOUNDBITE: "The question is the evidence that has been presented to you and relates to who killed Ron and Nicole what does that tell you does that convince you beyond a reasonable doubt no matter how much more qualified or how much better they could of done their job still in all did they present enough evidence to you did the evidence come to you in such a quantity and convincing force to convince you that this defendant committed these murders beyond a reasonable doubt ladies and gentlemen I submit to you that we have more than met our burden in this case." SUPERCAPTION: Marcia Clark, Prosecutor. Judge Lance Ito has extended the week's court hours in hoping to deliver the case to the jury on Friday.

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. SOUNDBITE: (English) "No I would love it, let's get the truth, when your conscience is clear you have got no problem, have you?" 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." SUPERCAPTION: Ian Smith, former Rhodesian Prime Minister Mugabe's threats come the same day a poll was released showing that 75 percent of Zimbabweans want Mugabe to resign and 51 percent want him prosecuted for human rights abuses.

Various photo opportunities of Israeli Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom and Erdogan STORYLINE Guarded by scores of Israeli and Palestinian security officials, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Monday visited the Al Aqsa Mosque, Islam's third-holiest site and one of the most politically sensitive areas in the region. 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.

Italy: Rome: Funeral Of Actor Marcello Mastroianni - 1996
 
03:16
Italian actor Marcello Mastroianni has been laid to rest in Rome Sunday. In a simple civic ceremony at Rome's Campidoglio (city hall) family members, celebrities and fans remembered their friend and hero - a man whose acting career spanned nearly fifty years. With the song from his movie "eight-and-a-half" playing in the background - friends spoke of their memories of the star. After the ceremony his coffin was taken across Rome and placed in the family vault. Mastroianni died in Paris Thursday from pancreatic cancer aged 72. There was music and applause - perfectly fitting for Italy's acting great Marcello Mastroianni to make his finale. As his coffin was carried into Rome's Campidoglio the huge crowd broke into a thunderous applause - thanks for the man who had entertained them since his cinematic debut in 1947. And in the background - the theme music from his movie "eight-and-a-half". Rome's mayor Francesco Rutelli accompanied Mastroianni's grieving family into the ceremony. His widow Flora Carabella and daughter Barbara took their seats with another of Italy's greatest acting exports - Sofia Loren. Loren and Mastroianni had performed in 12 films together - they had also been close friends. Many of Italy's most renowned actors and directors had come to say their last farewell - including actress Monica Vitti. Mastroianni's long-time seamstress simply summarised his importance in Italian cinema. SOUNDBITE: (Italian) "You will always be in my heart and in the heart of Italian cinema. Thank you for everything." SUPER-CAPTION: Angela Insimani, Mastroianni's seamstress. As the music played and memories of Marcello flooded back - Sofia Loren broke down in tears as she held the hand of his widow Flora. She says they made one of the great cinematic partnerships. SOUNDBITE: (English) "There was a kind of chemistry between us that could not be compared with anybody else, with anyone else. Q/ Do you have a last message for Marcello? "Ciao Marcello, I will never forget you. You will always be in my heart, I know that." SUPER-CAPTION: Sofia Loren, actress. After the ceremony - Mastroianni's body was transported across Rome to the Verrano cemetery where the family vault is. There he will now rest - but always remembered through the 160 films that he starred in. More often than not, he was the quintessential "Latin lover" - most famous for his role in Fellini's film "La Dolce Vita".

PHILIPPINES: IMELDA MARCOS SENATE HEARING
 
02:47
Tagalog/Eng/Nat Philippine senators have grilled the widow of dictator Ferdinand Marcos on her claims that her husband owned much of the Philippines, In a hearing broadcast on nationwide television, she dodged most of the questions, invoking privilege. The government has put claims on about 570 (m) million U-S dollars in Swiss deposits, now held in an account in a Philippine bank. The Swiss accounts are also being claimed by nine thousand five hundred Filipinos who won a class action suit for human rights violations against the Marcos estate and were awarded 2 (b) billion U-S dollars in damages. Draped in pearls and gold jewellery, the sixty-nine year-old who became famous for her massive shoe collection said her husband was not a thief instead that he had amassed his fortune through gold trading. The senate hearing was broadcast live by a cable television company, allowing many Filipinos to see for the first time Mrs. Marcos being questioned about her family's wealth. Marcos and her lawyers are reportedly planning to sue to recover at least 500 billion pesos (12.65 (b) billion U-S dollars) in equity in more than 100 top Philippine corporations allegedly entrusted by Marcos to his associates, who now refuse to return them to Marcos' heirs. In the hearing, Marcos said she agreed to appear in the senate to seek the lawmakers' help in recovering her husband's assets. She suggested the late president had wanted these turned over to the government for the benefit of all Filipinos. SOUNDBITE: (English) "But the most urgent reason I was looking forward to coming to this hearing of the Philippines Senate is to seek your help, honourable Senators, to help me implement the last will and testament of the late President Marcos, to enlist assets in the hands of trustees, to implement the Marcos Humanitarian Foundation, so that we can help the country in our economic crisis and help the Filipino people in their agony and suffering" SUPER CAPTION: Imelda Marcos, former First Lady of the Philippines One of the country's leading newspapers early this month ran a series of articles in which Marcos was quoted as having said her family owns much of the Philippines. Senator Aquilino Pimentel, a former southern Philippine city mayor jailed by Marcos, asked whether it was true that she had given the interview. She denied giving interviews and refused to identify the corporations and assets or the trustees used by her husband as fronts. Senator Pimentel said that among the names she mentioned in the interview was the name of Lucie Otan. But Imelda Marcos remained tight lipped. SOUNDBITE: "Again I would like to revoke my right to remain silent" Question: We are only interested what is the first name of this David that you mentioned? "I think I better obey the orders of my council to invoke my right to remain silent, because of the many cases that I have in Sandigen Buyen (unclear) and elsewhere. Question: What about Eduardo Cuanco? The same right, your honour" SUPER CAPTION: Imelda Marcos, former First lady of the Philippines Marcos was ousted in a popular revolt in 1986 and died in exile in Hawaii three years later. He had denied any wrongdoing. The government has accused the Marcoses of illegally enriching themselves during his 20-year rule. Marcos said she was aware of her husband's huge wealth. SOUNDBITE: (English) "I knew that he was pretty rich. That was why I was telling him why are you in politics with all this wealth that you have. Early on - almost on day one - I knew he had more money than people thought...than I expected he had" SUPER CAPTION: Imelda Marcos, former First lady of the Philippines You can license this story through AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/metadata/youtube/f03e11a59bad32b4f73d9d6c0604c405 Find out more about AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/HowWeWork

(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.

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.

Some of the best times of my life is when I have done something hard, when I have overcome a fear.

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

It was how he felt about his mother, the love that he felt to his mother, his relationship to women, his work ethic. We worked together in a firm. He did his work, he was good and he was smart and I liked that. He was low key and wasn't impressed with himself and he was funny and we joked a lot and he loved his little sister...those were the things. And he was a community organiser. I really respected that. Here we are in a big law firm, right, and everybody was pushing to make money, he was one of the smartest students at Harvard Law School, one of the smartest associates in our firm.

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.

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.

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."

FRANCE: CANNES FILM FESTIVAL OPENS WITH COLOMBIAN FILM
 
01:58
Spanish/Nat The Colombian film "La Vendedora de Rosas" (The Rose Seller) opened at the Cannes Film Festival on Thursday. The film tells the story of a group of street vendors in the Colombian city of Medellin, on the night before Christmas. It's one of the 22 films competing for the festival's coveted Golden Palm award. It's Colombian director Victor Gaviria's second showing at the Cannes Film Festival. His "La Vendedora de Rosas" tells the story of a group of Medellin street urchins on the night before Christmas. The main character - "Monica" - is played by Lady Tabares. Lady had never acted before - but she was able to use some of her own life experiences to carry out her role on the silver screen. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) "The truth is, I have sold roses, I have been on the streets, I have had problems - and getting to Cannes is a great experience. It is something that fills me with happiness - something I never expected. But I like it a lot - it is wonderful to be here with Victor (Gaviria). Its the first time I have ever travelled abroad." SUPER CAPTION: Lady Tabares, Star of 'Vendedora de Rosas' The film depicts the poverty and drug-culture of downtown Medellin, as well as the music, warmth and vitality of the Colombian people. Its realism is enhanced by the fact that the film was shot with a cast of non-professional actors. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) "In a city like Medellin, one no longer talks about exploitation - one talks about exclusion - the reality of exclusion is very, very hard." SUPER CAPTION: Victor Gaviria, Director of 'Vendedora de Rosas' Gaviria's first film "Rodrigo- No Futuro a los Involvidables" (Rodrigo - No Future for the Forgotten People" was presented at Cannes in 1990 and was warmly praised by the judges. But tragedy struck when the cast and director returned to Colombia after the festival. Nine out of 10 of the main characters in the film were murdered. Tragedy hit Gaviria again during his latest project - the main actor Alex Bedoya died of cancer soon after filming ended.

(16 Oct 2017) THE DUCHESS OF CAMBRIDGE DANCES WITH PADDINGTON BEAR The Duchess of Cambridge had an impromptu dance with Paddington Bear on Monday afternoon (16 OCT.17) to sounds of a calypso band playing at Paddington Station in London. 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.

USA: BEVERLY HILLS: MOURNERS BID FAREWELL TO FRANK SINATRA
 
03:10
Natural Sound Frank Sinatra fans gathered by the hundreds outside a church today as family and a who's who of the entertainment world came to bid a final farewell. More than 400 friends were invited to his noon funeral, a liturgy planned to feature uplifting music and remembrances by Frank Sinatra Jr., Gregory Peck and others. The Good Shepherd Roman Catholic Church had been transformed into a forest of white flowers for the service. Sinatra's casket was blanketed with gardenias. Mourners who entered the church today included former first lady Nancy Reagan, Tony Bennett, Joey Bishop, Don Rickles, Paul Anka, Tony Curtis, Sophia Loren, Wayne Newton, Milton Berle and Dionne Warwick. Also seen were Red Buttons, Tim Conway, Diahann Carroll, Angie Dickinson, Marlo Thomas, Phil Donahue, Tony Danza, Ed McMahon and Tom Dreesen, the comic who opened for Sinatra for many years. As a skywriter sketched a white heart in the sunny sky, Cardinal Roger Mahony, archbishop of Los Angeles, followed a procession of altar servers into Good Shepherd Church to celebrate the noon Mass. A glossy white ticket with "Francis Albert Sinatra Funeral Mass" printed in purple was required to enter Good Shepherd Roman Catholic Church, which was transformed into a forest of white flowers. Sinatra's widow, Barbara, and a family contingent were to later accompany Sinatra's casket to the Palm Springs area. The interment site at Desert Memorial Park in Cathedral City is where his mother, Natalie "Dolly" Sinatra, and father, Anthony Martin Sinatra, are buried. Sinatra was 82 when he died Thursday of heart failure.

Beam me upstate? Shatner visits NY Star Trek set replica
 
03:09
(5 May 2018) BEAM ME UPSTATE? SHATNER VISITS NY STAR TREK SET REPLICA It's like William Shatner got stuck in a Star Trek time warp.    The 87-year-old actor visited a doppelganger of the original Starship Enterprise set in upstate New York for a fans' weekend on Friday (MAY 4).  He wore a dark jacket this time instead of his gold Capt. James T. Kirk shirt, but the command chair was still comfortable and the blinking lights of the bridge were just as he remembered them.    "This set is exactly the way it was 50-odd years ago," Shatner said. "And it's like it's coming back to a house you might have been born in and you look around and it's like, 'Wow! It's bigger and smaller than I remember. And yet it's the same.'"    Shatner said the set reminded him of both the emotional moments and the laughs, like when crew members would forget to open the sliding doors as he approached.    "I'd crash into the door," he said with a laugh. "And then I began to learn to make my own 'whhhoshhh' sound as I went out the door."    The "Captain on the Bridge" weekend runs Friday and Saturday at a tourist attraction boasting replicas of the original series' bridge, transporter room, sick bay and other sets. Tickets ranged as high as $1,500 for a chance to ask Shatner questions on the bridge, though "red shirt" tickets were $85. The attraction's website made clear "Mr. Shatner is NOT leading tours!"    Finding a Star Trek set built at the site of an old dollar store near the Vermont border seems highly illogical, but it was a labor of love for local resident James Cawley. The professional Elvis impersonator began the years-long process of building the sets in 1997 after inheriting a copy of the original Enterprise blueprints from a costume designer on the original show.    At first, Cawley and his crew used the sets to make a series of Star Trek fan films. Now the sets are a tourist attraction.    Dozens of fans waited outside Friday to greet Shatner, whose TV show went off the air almost 50 years ago. Many, like Glenn Coker of Catskill, New York, wore Star Trek uniforms. They said it was still a thrill to see Shatner.    "I'm a sci-fi person. Transporters beam me up. All the different things. Phasers," said Coker, who wore a Capt. Kirk shirt. "Plus, Kirk always got the girl."

USA: NOBEL PRIZE FOR CHEMISTRY AWARDED TO SCIENTIST ZEWAIL
 
02:36
Los Angeles, USA, 12 October 1999 The Nobel Prize for Chemistry has been awarded to an Egyptian-American for his pioneering work with lasers. Scientist, Ahmed Zewail has shown that a rapid-firing laser can observe the motion of atoms in a molecule, during chemical reactions. The Nobel Prize is the latest in a series of plaudits offered to Zewail and his colleagues at the California Institute of Technology for work in this field. It was congratulations all round when Ahmed Zewail arrived at work on Tuesday morning The 53-year-old scientist had just found out that he had been awarded the Nobel Prize for Chemistry for his work capturing ultrafast snapshots of atomic reactions. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Well in the excited state as they say, I feel well, very, very well. (Q) Did you expect it? You can never expect a Nobel Prize, nobody ever expects a Nobel Prize. People tell you that you can get it but you never expect a Nobel Prize so it was very thrilling to get the call at 5.30 this morning. (Q) What happened with the telephone call? Well the Royal Swedish Academy, the secretary-general called and he said 'I'm sorry to wake you up and I have some good news' and then he told me about the award and the significance and so on. (Q) How did you feel when you got off the phone? Did you jump in the air? I went and kissed my wife and kissed my children and she made a cup of coffee and the phone did not stop until now. It just did not stop." SUPER CAPTION: Ahmed Zewail, Nobel Laureate Colleagues who work with Zewail are elated at the award and say he's a deserving recipient. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Yeah I was excited, I woke up at six and went and turned on the computer and went on-line and there he was, Ahmed Zewail, it was unbelievable. I'm really excited, I'm so happy and I'm one hundred percent sure he deserves it, it's great." SUPER CAPTION: SOUNDBITE: (English) "He did some very good experiments in the late 80s and he's the founder of the field. Now there's hundreds of groups all over the world doing the same thing and I think many people didn't believe it was possible but he showed it was and now it's a standard thing, text-books, conferences, everywhere." SUPER CAPTION: Zewails' development known as femtochemistry, uses ultra-fast lasers to measure the movement of atoms during chemical reactions. His ground-breaking research has helped explain the way the human eye adjusts to the dark and the way plants convert light to food in photosynthesis. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Until the work at CalTech you could not really see them in real time, you could not see the motion of the atoms." SUPER CAPTION: Ahmed Zewail, Nobel Laureate Zewail grew up in Egypt and got his first science degree from Alexandria University in 1967. From there he went to the United States, where he earned a PhD from the University of Pennsylvania. He then performed research at the University of California in Berkeley and was appointed to CalTech's faculty in 1976. Zewail and his team have been showered with honours over the years, the Nobel prize is the latest.

Philippines: Cebu Province: Illegal Gun-Manufacturing Centre - 1997
 
03:23
Cebu province in the Philippines is known for its beautiful beaches and resorts. But Cebu is known to Filipinos for its illegal gun-manufacturing centred in the city of Danao. Recently, the government has approved licences for two gun manufacturing companies in Danao. But some remain in operation even without a permit, and this is likely to continue. UPSOUND: (Sound of rapid gunfire from Uzi-gram) Byron Garcia is testing what he calls an "uzi-gram". It's one of the products being manufactured by the Danao Arms Manufacturing Corporation, or Damcor - the first licensed gun manufacturer in Danao City. The city of Danao, in the Philippine central island of Cebu, has always been notorious as the centre of illegal gun manufacturing. Here, thousands of residents have been involved for decades in what is virtually considered a cottage industry, making home-made guns, popularly known as "paltik". By establishing Damcor, Garcia has legalised gun manufacturing in Danao. Damcor specialises on the 38-revolver, and is also producing machine pistols and shotguns mainly to supply the country's security agencies. Garcia has invested more than 40 (m) million pesos in Damcor, some of which were spent on machines with state of the art technology to produce some of the gun parts. But most of the work is left for the 70 workers that Garcia has employed since his company opened last year. Most of their experience is based on what they've been clandestinely doing in their backyard for years. 30-year old Lito Gonzales was into illegal gun making for ten years before he decided to work for Damcor. Here, he earns about 600-dollars a month, and is free from the anxiety of being arrested by the authorities. SOUNDBITE: (Tagalog) "Now, we're okay here, because we don't need to worry about being arrested today or tomorrow, that the police will arrest us because it's illegal to do guns outside. No more." SUPER CAPTION: Lito Gonzales, worker Danao Arms Manufacturing Corporation But despite the entry of Damcor and another licensed gun company, Garcia believes that the illegal gun- manufacturing industry in Danao will continue to flourish, mainly because of the lack of political will to remove it. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Maybe it will change a bit. But it cannot totally eradicate the illegal business here." SUPER CAPTION: Byron Garcia, President Danao Arms Manufacturing Corporation And for most of the illegal gun makers in this city, making the "paltik" in their backyards will surely be a hard habit to break. For 20-year-old Julius Capuyan, it's the only job he's known since he was 13 years old. SOUNDBITE: (Tagalog) "There's no other way of life for us here. We'd rather live this way, illegally making guns. SUPER CAPTION: Julius Capuyan Most of the people in Danao have relied on this illegal industry as their livelihood for decades making the government's job of curbing the unlicensed gun-manufacturing operations a difficult task.

Migrant family tries to cross into US illegally
 
01:59
(10 Dec 2018) Footage from the border between Mexico and the US shows migrants being detained by US Customs and Border Patrol officers immediately upon crossing the border fence dividing the two countries. One US Customs and Border Patrol officer is seen warning a journalist to not assist migrants "in any way," adding that doing so can lead to "charges of misdemenour or a felony." Thousands of migrants are currently living in crowded tents in Tijuana after a grueling journey through Mexico in the search for a better life. Tired of the long wait to apply for asylum in the US and exhausted from the temporary conditions on the Mexican side, some migrants have resorted to crossing the border illegally.

(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.

Kibaki indicated that progress was being made in the talks, and outgoing AU Chairperson John Kufuor assured reporters that the union was standing firm behind former United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan "to try to achieve a mutually acceptable role for all sides." Talks aimed at ending the crisis, being mediated by Annan, resumed on Friday with an address by his successor, Ban Ki-moon, who appealed to negotiators to "look beyond the individual interest". Ban also met on Friday with Odinga, who accuses Kibaki of stealing December 27 elections and demands a new vote. Kibaki has made clear his position as president is non-negotiable, and the international community is pressing the two to share power. In Ethiopia, Kibaki, who met with Ban Ki-moon a day earlier, welcomed the international mediation effort. But his reiteration of the suggestion the opposition go to the courts indicated the two rivals remain far apart and that negotiations could well be protracted. Still, Kibaki pointed to the start of talks as a hopeful sign, and said: "I am optimistic that we will arrive at a lasting political solution". Tanzanian President Jakaya Mrisho Kikwete, also the AU's new chairperson, said Annan and his team would be "enough" to deal with the situation in Kenya.

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

Bush, acting as a special envoy for his son, U.S. President George Bush, arrived in Bangkok on Sunday with his wife for a three-day official visit to deliver the U.S. message of goodwill for the 60th anniversary of His Majesty the King's accession to the Thailand throne. Their official visit is a reflection of long, cordial ties between the two countries. King Bhumibol Adulyadej - the world's longest-reigning monarch - is scheduled to host a formal dinner at the royal palace for his American guests, according to U.S. embassy officials and the Foreign Ministry. Bush is the third former U.S. President to visit Thailand this year, following the visits of Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton. Former President Bush was to be escorted to the dinner by Thai Prime Minister Surayud Chulanont whom he met in the Throne Hall. Surayud became Thailand's interim prime minister after a 19 September coup that Washington criticised as a setback to democracy. The coup ousted elected Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, who was widely accused of corruption and abuse of power.

PORTUGAL: POPE JOHN PAUL II VISIT
 
02:00
Part mute XFA More than half a (m) million pilgrims gathered in the Portuguese town of Fatima to attend the pope's beatification of a shepherd boy and girl whom he credits with a miracle that saved his life in a 1981 assassination attempt. The crowds watched the pope beatify Jacinta Marto and her brother Francisco, who said the Virgin Mary appeared to them and their cousin Lucia dos Santos above an olive tree six times in 1917 and told them three secrets. Dos Santos, who is now 93 and the only one of the three still alive, met the pope in Fatima on Saturday. Pope John Paul the Second weaved through the cheering throng in Fatima for 40 minutes in his popemobile before the beatification. The pope is said to have a special fondness for Fatima since 1981, when he was wounded in an assassination attempt in St. Peter's Square. The shooting happened on May 13, the anniversary of the first apparition of the Virgin in Fatima, 110 kilometres (70 miles) north of Lisbon. One of the two bullets that hit the pope is placed in a statue of the Virgin Mary at Fatima - a town of 8-thousand people. When he came to Fatima on May 12 the following year to thank the Virgin, he survived another assassination attempt by a fundamentalist Spanish priest who lunged at him with a bayonet, accusing him of betraying the Church. On Saturday, the crowds watched the pope beatify Jacinta Marto and her brother Francisco, who said the Virgin Mary appeared to them and their cousin Lucia dos Santos above an olive tree six times in 1917 and told them three secrets. Many pilgrims hoped the pope would reveal the last of three secrets the shepherd children said the Virgin told them. The first two foretold the end of World War I and the rise and fall of Communism. Dos Santos, who is now 93, has told the third secret to the Vatican but successive popes have refused to disclose it. She sat in silent prayer beside the tombs of her cousins before joining the beatification ceremony in Fatima's neo-Baroque basilica and meeting the pope. The beatified shepherd children died of pneumonia two years after the visions, at the ages of 9 and 11. The pope's visit to Fatima was expected to be his last foreign trip this year amid a heavy agenda of 2000 Holy Year commitments.

Olympic gold medalist Shiffrin: I'm no Michael Phelps
 
03:22
(10 Feb 2018) US ski racer Mikaela Shiffrin couldn't help but laugh on Saturday when a reporter asked what her reaction was to being compared to Michael Phelps, the US swimmer who is the most decorated Olympian in history. "You're crazy," the American ski racer replied. "OK, he has, what, 23 medals?" Actually, Phelps' haul is 23 golds - and 28 medals in all. Shiffrin's only medal so far is a gold in slalom at age 18 in 2014 at Sochi. She comes to the Pyeongchang Games with a chance to become the first skier to win that race twice in a row at the Olympics. She will also be among the favourites in Monday's giant slalom, and might also enter the downhill and super-G. For now, though, she'll only commit to entering the slalom and giant slalom. "I would like to compete in everything," she said. "I'm not sure if I'm actually going to have the energy to do that."

But if you can't, and an overwhelming majority of the members go for something, I think it should work. My understanding is that the U.S., even though they may not be able to vote for the Council as it is now currently proposed, will be able to work with the Council, and so I do expect the Council to be established today. I am particularly happy about it because I think it's qualitatively better than the Commission. The President of the General Assembly has done great work working with all the member states to come up with a document that gives us a credible basis to move forward. And I'm sure the US, which has done so much for human rights, will find a way to work with the other member states to make the Council what it ought to be." 6. Mandela and Annan shake hands 7.

School children singing STORYLINE: United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan is sure a UN human rights council would be able to work with the United States, even if the US was to vote against it being established, he said on Wednesday. Annan spoke after meeting former South African president Nelson Mandela at the Nelson Mandela Foundation in Johannesburg. Annan said he was optimistic that member states would approve the creation of a new UN Human Rights Council despite vows by the United States to vote against the new body. US Ambassador John Bolton had rejected any compromise that did not reopen negotiations on the council and reiterated that the United States would vote against a resolution to create it on a Wednesday ballot in the General Assembly. A vote was considered likely despite Assembly president Jan Eliasson's repeated calls for the new council to be approved by consensus of the 191 member states. Annan said, "in a normal democratic process, if you can get unanimity, well and good. But if you can't, and an overwhelming majority of the members go for something, I think it should work." "My understanding is that the US, even though they may not be able to vote for the council as it is now currently proposed, it will be able to work with the council," Annan said. Annan noted that the US had done "so much" for human rights in the past. The 191-member UN General Assembly has been unable to agree on a replacement for the current UN Human Rights Commission, criticised for including among its 53 members notorious human rights abusers such as China, Cuba, Sudan and Zimbabwe, the AFP news agency reported on Wednesday. Annan is in the final year of a decade at the helm of the United Nations. Mandela commended Annan for his ability to identify with different types of people. "Kofi introduced a new approach of respecting everybody whether he is black or white, and trying to serve them. That is the type of Secretary General of the United Nations that we want." After meeting Mandela, the UN Secretary General visited Soweto and laid a wreath at the Hector Peterson memorial, to remember the first victim of the Soweto uprising of 1976.

UK: LONDON: NELSON MANDELA ADDRESSES PARLIAMENT
 
03:19
(11 Jul 1996) English/Nat The British passion for Nelson Mandela continues unabated on the third day of his four- day state visit. Full British pomp and ceremony surrounded the South African President at the Palace of Westminster, where he addressed both Houses of Parliament. He then left to host a special lunch at the Dorchester for the Queen. The huge medieval Westminster Hall was packed with people wanting to pay homage to Nelson Mandela. Ministers, M-Ps and peers gathered to hear a rare double address to both Houses of Parliament. The double address is an honour reserved for leaders of nations with particularly important links with Britain. Mandela is a leader like no other, in an age of cynicism he's been hailed as a man of integrity, honesty and courage. The Speaker of the House of Commons, led him to the stage. Betty Boothroyd was a member of the Black Sash Movement of white women who took part years ago in anti-apartheid vigils outside the South African Embassy. But British politicians have not always seen Mandela as a hero. In 1987, John Major's predecessor, Margaret Thatcher described the A-N-C as a 'typical terrorist organisation'. Baroness Thatcher sat subdued in Westminster Hall, perhaps reflecting the extraordinary reversal of fortunes which has the former political prisoner returning as President of South Africa. In his address, Mandela spoke of the need to bring peace, unity and equality to Africa. SOUNDBITE: Join hands to build on what we have achieved together and help construct a humane African world, whose emergence will say a new universal order is born in which we are each our brother's an sister's keeper. SUPER CAPTION: Nelson Mandela, South African President When quizzed by reporters on Margaret Thatcher's attitude towards him nine years ago, he made it clear that bygones should be bygones. On this, the first state visit by a South African president to the U-K, Mandela has had nothing but praise for the royal family, the government and the people. President Mandela was escorted out of the hall to the sound of trumpeters and the Band of the Grenadier Guards. He left to host a lunch for the Queen at the Dorchester. Doorman at the luxury hotel were already rolling out the red carpet in preparation for her majesty and a number of other high-ranking guests. Former Prime Minister Sir Edward Heath had heard the Westminster address. He congratulated the President on his words. SOUNDBITE: A tremendous reception and a very good speech this morning. SUPER CAPTION: Sir Edward Heath Paddy Ashdown, leader of the Liberal Democrats, had been deeply touched. SOUNDBITE: The sight of that frail figure there and all that he's been through, and with all that history behind it. I think it was very emotional. SUPER CAPTION: Paddy Ashdown, Leader of the Liberal Democrats Also on her way to the lunch, Margaret Thatcher was less willing to talk. Mandela had refused to meet the former Prime Minister on a trip to London in 1990. Mandela arrived, having swapped his dark suit for one of his trademark bright shirts. He stopped to shake hands in the crowd before going in to meet the Queen. They chatted and smiled before finally entering the dining hall.

Middle-aged graffiti elders are still picking up the spray
 
05:06
(31 Jul 2012) LEADIN: Graffiti art was a radical form of expression that changed the landscape of New York's streets in the 1970s and 80s. Three decades on, many of the original graffiti artists are still spray painting their feelings and creating art on New York's streets despite their middle-aged responsibilities. STORYLINE: In torn jeans and saddled with a black backpack, Andrew Witten glances up and down the street for police, and then whips out his black marker pen and scribbles "Zephyr" on a wall. Witten was part of a generation of urban latchkey kids who spray-painted their initials all over Manhattan in the 1970s and '80s. Now the artistic rebels that transformed the city's urban landscape, and art scene are coming of age - middle age, that is. But the 51-year-old single father is having trouble putting away his spray paint can. Now revered as a graffiti elder, Witten says it is the only time he feels free. "I'm chronologically old to be out there doing it. I'm sure I can't run quite as fast. But it's the only time that I feel completely free actually," he says. Witten built a reputation as a master at spray-painting extravagant graffiti pieces on freight and subway trains, called train-bombing, in the neighbourhoods where he now teaches his 6-year-old daughter, Lulu, to skateboard. For him, spray-painting other people's property with his nickname, or tag, is almost an addiction, and danger is part of the drug. Crawling under barbed wire, ducking from police officers, even being shot at is all part of the experience. But he is all too aware of the consequences of being caught by the police for expressing himself on public property when he is a single father caring for his daughter. "I'm ready. I could go tonight. But I have to be pragmatic and look at the benefits if I go tonight and the risks. And because of my daughter that wouldn't be the responsible thing to do because she needs her father and in jail I'm not much use as a father," he says. But with an artist's heart, Witten describes painting graffiti in more poetic terms. He calls it a freeing experience, in which the silence of night gives way to the hiss and mist of the spray rising into the moonlight. On a tour of past works of graffiti, Witten says something from 1994 is a rarity: usually work would be spray painted over, or cleaned away. Witten's brush with fame now often comes with his freelance art writing and his sporadic visits to his daughter's school, where he teaches her classmates how to draw. Lulu knows her father draws "crazy art," a term she picked up from seeing graffiti on trains. "Well she's a big fan of graffiti but she has her own name for it which is 'crazy art' which she came up with on her own," he says. Angel Ortiz recently served 41 days of a 50-day sentence in the Rikers Island jail system after being busted for spraying his tag, LA Roc, on a billboard in March last year. For decades, 45-year-old Ortiz, has been known on Manhattan's Lower East Side as LA Roc. A traumatic loss of a girlfriend brought him out of a 14-year hiatus from graffiti writing. He has since been caught three times spraying his tag on property, each time while walking a friend's dog. The streets are his canvasses he says. He usually scribbles with black marker pen, "LA Roc", and was doing this when he was caught by police. When a pair of police officers smelled the fresh paint and nabbed Ortiz, they asked if he saw himself as too old to be doing graffiti. But even now, Ortiz keeps a spray can or marker in his pocket to satisfy that incessant itch to tag mailboxes, signs and fire hydrants. Graffiti documentary maker and photographer Henry Chalfant looks back at Ortiz's heyday as a revolutionary time period in street art.

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.

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.
