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

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

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."

01:52
(20 Jan 1989) Ronald Reagan flashed one last salute to George Bush and left the nation's capital to begin the life of an ex-president in California. Reagan, walking hand-in-hand with his wife Nancy, bid the new president and first lady Barbara Bush farewell with handshakes and kisses on the east side of the Capitol at the conclusion of his successor's inaugural ceremonies. The ex-president turned to salute Bush as Mrs. Reagan waved from the door of the aircraft. The new president returned the gesture.

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.

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

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".

UZBEKISTAN: RUSSIAN PRESIDENT YELTSIN STUMBLES DURING CEREMONY
 
02:37
Russian/Nat There are once again questions about Russian President Boris Yeltsin's health after he swayed and nearly fell over during a military ceremony in Uzbekistan. Another welcome ceremony in which he was due to take part, was cancelled. Talks with Islam Karimov, president of Uzbekistan, were later held behind closed doors at a government residence. Yeltsin's spokesman said the Russian president had had a "difficult flight" and had caught at cold. Yeltsin is on a two day visit to the central Asian republic of Uzbekistan. As so often with the Russian leader, international crises were put on the back burner as doubts about his health took centre stage once more on Sunday. Yeltsin was seen to visibly stumble when he arrived in the Uzbekistan capital, Tashkent. He leant on the arm of President Karimov for support as he crossed the tarmac and later waved to the cameras. But more was to follow. Yeltsin was uncomfortable on his feet as he and Karimov stood side by side while the national anthems were played. An aide dashed closer to the Russian leader when it looked at one point as if he was going to fall over. After the ceremony, Karimov immediately took Yeltsin's arm as they walked away over the tarmac. A wreath laying ceremony at a monument to a national hero of Uzbekistan was cancelled. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Yakushkin said the Russian president was suffering from a cold after having been through a tough working week. SOUNDBITE: (Russian) "I have to say I have spent the whole week with Boris Nikolayevich (Yeltsin). He has had a very busy working week, and that is why I am holding this briefing. Some of you were present at these meetings. It was a hard flight and not an easy end to his working week. I have to say he has a cold. SUPER CAPTION: Dmitry Yakushkin, Kremlin spokesman The 67-year-old president, who had a quintuple heart bypass, is facing an economic crisis and labour unrest at home while on the international front the crisis in Kosovo poses a serious challenge to Russia's international relations.

USA: PAKISTAN'S BENAZIR BHUTTO MEETS PRESIDENT BILL CLINTON
 
02:09
English/Nat Pakistan's Prime Minister, Benazir Bhutto, met with U-S President Bill Clinton today (Tuesday) to deliver a clear message: my planes or my money. Benazir Bhutto wants the Clinton administration to either unfreeze the delivery of 28 F- 16 fighter jets or return the one-point-four (b) billion dollars paid for them. Clinton promised to urge Congress to reimburse Pakistan. But he is limited by a 1990 law which freezes U-S military supplies and economic aid to Pakistan due to concerns that it was developing nuclear weapons. Bhutto told Clinton that Pakistan had no nuclear weapons, although she claimed it had the knowledge to build them. President Clinton's administration inherited the uncomfortable situation of Pakistan's payment of one-point-four billion U-S dollars for fighter jets it never received. The 28 F-16 fighter jets were manufactured and paid for, but never delivered. The deal is being held up by a 1990 U-S law freezing economic aid and military supplies for Pakistan over concern that it is acquiring nuclear weapons. Bhutto said Pakistan had the knowledge to develop atomic weapons, but had decided against assembling, exporting or detonating nuclear devices. The measure is known as the Pressler amendment, after its sponsor, Senator Larry Pressler of South Dakota. Following their meeting, President Clinton says the situation is unfair and must be addressed. SOUNDBITE: "I don't think what happened was fair to Pakistan, in terms of the money. Now under the law, we can't give up the equipment, the law is clear. So I intend to consult with Congress on that to see what we can do." SUPER CAPTION: US President Bill Clinton Bhutto felt progress was being made on the five year old dispute. SOUNDBITE: "I'm encouraged by my discussions with the president this morning and with the concern he has shown for Pakistan. I welcome the Clinton administration's decision to work with Congress to revise the Pressler amendment." SUPER CAPTION: Pakistan PM Benazir Bhutto The two leaders also discussed the 48-year-old conflict between Pakistan and India over control of the disputed Kashmir territory on their borders.

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.

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.

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

Sean Penn: Bradley Cooper remake of 'A Star is Born' is astonishing
 
02:54
(28 May 2018) SEAN PENN: BRADLEY COOPER REMAKE OF 'A STAR IS BORN' IS ASTONISHING The anticipated remake of "A Star is Born" doesn't premiere until October but it's already gaining buzz. The movie is the directorial debut of actor Bradley Cooper, who also stars in the film alongside Lady Gaga, who plays an aspiring singer - a role previously played by Judy Garland (the 1954 version) and Barbra Streisand (the 1976 version). A trailer premiered at CinemaCon in Las Vegas recently to applause from the crowd of theater owners and exhibitors and tweets of praise from journalists in attendance. One person who has seen an early screening is actor Sean Penn, who described it during a recent interview as "one of the best movies I've seen in I don't know how many years." "The acting is brilliant. Both, they are astonishing in it. And he as a director is the kind of artist that we had when I was kind of coming up as an audience. I knew he was a very talented actor, I did not know what was going on inside that guy's brain until I saw this movie and so that got – I'm really excited to see because: A, it's a great movie for a cinephile whose all about art films because it's all there. But that doesn't mean that everybody else isn't going to understand it and love it. This thing is like a Hal Ashby move. It's for everybody. It's a great movie for everybody instead of a pandering movie to make sure, for anybody." Cooper already has his next directing gig lined up, helming and starring in Leonard Bernstein biopic "Bernstein." Bernstein was named conductor of the New York Philharmonic orchestra at 25. He then wrote and composed the music for the film "West Side Story." A second movie about Bernstein is also in the works with Jake Gyllenhaal in the lead role.

Obviously we don't have all the means otherwise we would not go outside Africa. We don't have all the means but nevertheless it is an African problem and clearly though the countries of the regions are the ones who have met for this problem, we can't envisage an African force seeking assistance from the outside world, we can't envisage a force that does not have South Africa"'; C/A press; SOT Mandela: "The supply of arms to Rwanda was influenced by humanitarian considerations that people who were unarmed are going to be victims of that party outside the border which is being trained and prepared to go back and commit those massacres.

Lebanon - Girl sheds tears of glass

T/I: 10:44:35 A family in Lebanon believes that their daughter has experienced a miracle from God. She sheds up to ten pieces of glass daily from her eye without causing any damage. Hasnaa Muslumani, a twelve year old girl who lives in Fakha, says the unusual phenomenon started on March 28th this year when she woke up one morning feeling pain in her eye and something come out. Her mother took her to hospital and Dr Ahmed Araji reportedly managed to take out three big pieces of glass from her eye. Since her return home, Hasnaa has reportedly shed around 7-8 pieces of glass daily without any apparent harm being done to the eye.

SOUTH AFRICA: PRESIDENT MANDELA MAKES FINAL SPEECH AS ANC LEADER
 
03:25
(16 Dec 1997) Natural Sound South African President Nelson Mandela made his final speech as leader of the African National Congress at the party's 50th national conference on Tuesday. The conference marks the final step in the A-N-C's transition from a liberation movement to a political party. Deputy president Thabo Mbeki is expected to be the only candidate to replace Mandela as head of the A-N-C. The five-day conference will choose new leaders to replace the generation which led the African National Congress through its struggle for liberation. It will also decide on new policies to take the party - and South Africa - into the 21st century. The congress will see Nelson Mandela step down as A-N-C president after six years in which he has led his party through negotiations on ending white rule, the landmark 1994 elections and its first period governing the country. The conference is also expected to decide on final nominations for the top six party posts later on Tuesday. Mandela's deputy president, Thabo Mbeki, 55, is expected to be the only candidate to replace him, and will automatically be considered the new party president when the nominations close later today. Mbeki is expected to receive unanimous backing. A party atmosphere permeated the University of the North West campus in Mafeking. But while the scene suggested unity, the conference could see rifts grow in the A-N-C over leadership and policies. The only candidate to emerge so far for the deputy presidency - national chairman Jacob Zuma - may have to face a floor revolt from Mandela's ex-wife, Winnie Madikizela-Mandela. She proffered her famous raised-fist salute as she arrived on Tuesday and was cheered by about a dozen delegates. The A-N-C was expected to change its rules to make it more difficult for Madikizela-Mandela to be nominated by conference. At present such a nomination requires support from 10 per cent of the delegates by a show of hands. The new rules would increase this to 25 per cent - or 766 of the 3,064 voting delegates - who must sign seconding petitions. Madikizela-Mandela has been isolated for years by the mainstream A-N-C leadership because of her defiance of party discipline. Trouble could also come from discontented grassroots supporters of the A-N-C. Delegates representing impoverished blacks hungry for housing, power and jobs want more forceful policies and more pressure on wealthy whites to ease their situation. Some party leaders have warned that the A-N-C must start paying more attention to its members. In his final state of the A-N-C address, Nelson Mandela looked to the future. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Hopefully it will also assist the conference as it formulates both our policy position and the programme of action that will guide our activities in the period up to our next conference at the end of the twentieth century." SUPER CAPTION: Nelson Mandela, South African President Mandela will remain president of the country until 1999, when national elections are due. The A-N-C is expected to win, and the leaders chosen this week are almost certain to lead South Africa into the next century.

David Bowie's musical 'Lazarus' set for European premiere
 
04:05
(3 Nov 2016) BOWIE MUSICAL 'LAZARUS' SET TO OPEN IN LONDON The European premiere of David Bowie's musical 'Lazarus,' which played a sold-out Off-Broadway run earlier this year in New York, is set for November 8. Original New York cast members Michael C. Hall, Michael Esper, and Sophia Anne Caruso are reprising their roles in director Ivo van Hove's production. Bowie died in January from cancer. He was able to see the New York show before his death at age 69. The play starring "Dexter" and "Six Feet Under" actor Michael C. Hall, was a hit since its previews and Bowie's death made tickets even harder to come by. Bowie wrote the musical with Irish playwright Enda Walsh as a sequel to the 1963 novel "The Man Who Fell to Earth" by Walter Tevis, which inspired the 1976 film of the same name that he starred in. Michael C Hall stars as Newton, the character famously portrayed by David Bowie in the 1976 screen adaptation directed by Nicolas Roeg. The play focuses on Newton as he remains still on Earth - a 'man' unable to die. The set list comprises some of Bowie's biggest hits _ including "Changes," "Heroes," "Absolute Beginners" and "Life on Mars" _ as well as new songs like "Lazarus," taken from Bowie's "Blackstar" album, released shortly before his death. Lazarus is scheduled to run in London through 22 January 2017.

Eng/French/Nat Zaire's Information Minister announced on Friday that President Mobutu Sese Seko has given up power. The ailing dictator left Kinshasa for his northern palace, apparently ending his 32-year regime as rebels closed in on the capital. Mobutu flew off to Gbadolite, 700 miles north of Kinshasa, for what his spokesman called a "short rest." Later, the information minister Kin-Kiey Mulumba said Mobutu had "ceased all intervention in the conduct of affairs of state." The minister added that Mobutu reigns but does not govern. It's now rumoured Mobutu is planning to flee into exile possibly to France or Morocco. SOUNDBITE: (French) The head of state has left Kinshasa friday morning to go to Ghadoli where he normally lives as everybody knows. SUPER CAPTION: Kin-Kiey Mulumba, Zairean Information Minister. SOUNDBITE: (French) "During the transition period we will install a parliamentary regime, the Predident reigns but does not govern in contrast to the presidential regime of the second republic, now defunct, and the president will now only have executive powers" SUPER CAPTION: Kin-Kiey Mulumba, Zairean Information Minister. SOUNDBITE: (French) "The president of the republic can neither arbitrarily transfer powers to the rebel alliance nor transfer any powers which he doesn't constitutionally hold". SUPER CAPTION: Kin-Kiey Mulumba, Zairean Information Minister. SOUNDBITE: (French) "He is frightened of Kabila's troops who could come in either today or tomorrow".

Russia - Rural life in Russia

T/I: 10:39:48 While Moscow and the rest of the world were riveted by the recent struggle for power in the Kremlin, the rest of Russia went about its daily routine, largely oblivous to the capital's intrigue. In the village of Boyarki, nearly 100km to the east of Moscow mostly they worry about where they will get their next meal. With the collapse of the collective farm system, the populations of villages have had to return to a medieval system of self-supply, or hunting and gathering. Most of their food is grown in the backyard or in kitchen gardens. Almost 70% of the residents have moved elsewhere, to bigger towns or the capital, leaving the elderly behind.

Bosnian Muslims help keep Balkan Ramadan traditions alive
 
03:13
It's one of the busiest times of year for Sarajevo's bakers, preparing the city's favourite food - a yeasty bread known as somun - to break a long day of fasting. While somun is baked all year round, there's one special ingredient added just for Ramadan. Cumin seeds are sprinkled on top and when they are baked in a wood burning oven they release an aromatic smell. The owner of Vrbanjusa bakery in Sarajevo Jasmin Aljovic explains: "It is specific for Ramadan that we put black cumin seeds on somun. We do it for the smell; it is the traditional smell of Ramadan that permeates most of the city." As dusk approaches, queues form in front of the city's many bakeries. People prefer to get their somun bread for iftar while it is still hot from the oven. In Sarajevo, an old fortress overlooking the city has become a favourite iftar destination. Large crowds, including tourists and non-muslims, gather there to watch Smajo Krivic shoot a firework rocket from a cannon-like launcher to signal the end of fasting. Nearly two decades ago, Krivic and a group of friends reinitiated the cannon tradition which had been established during more than four centuries of Ottoman rule in Bosnia from the 15th to the 19th century. Krivic says: "During the communist rule after World War II, the (cannon firing) tradition had been banned," "But now, after the latest unfortunate war (between 1992 and 1995), myself and a group of my friends wanted to re-launch it and we succeeded in that," he says. Krivic consults his watch before firing the cannon into the sky. Soon after, Sarajevo's many minarets light up and the call to prayer starts echoing through the city. Many young Muslims like to break their fast with friends on top of the fortress, replacing traditional meals with a simple slice of pizza. For those who stay home or go to restaurants, the fast is typically broken by dates and strong sugary lemonade. It is then followed by small servings of traditional Bosnian meals such as onions or stuffed peppers and soups and stews. All meals are accompanied by somun.

SOUNDBITE (English) Lonnie Ali, Muhammad Ali's wife "Today, however, he is facing an opponent unlike any he has ever fought. Just like a million other Americans who suffer from Parkinson's, Muhammad is battling a relentless, remorseless, insidious thief. Parkinson's recognises no titles, respects no achievements, nor bows to any amount of talent, courage or character. Parkinson's does not discriminate. There is no question that Parkinson's is the fight of Muhammad's life." 8. Cutaway of committee members 9. SOUNDBITE (English) Lonnie Ali, Muhammad Ali's wife "We were compelled to be here today because of the troubling situation we see occurring with regard to Parkinson's research, that may be unnecessarily delaying progress towards better treatments and even a cure for Parkinson's. We are here because Muhammad has never been one to sit back quietly and wait for things to happen. Time is of essence. People with Parkinson's don't have any time to waste. This tragic under funding may lead to missed opportunities for better treatment or even for a cure." 10. Wide shot of committee members clapping 11. Wide side shot of Michael J. Fox testifying 12.

Fox, actor "In describing our efforts, we often make analogies to great achievements, like the moonshine. But I'm here to tell you that administering a successful research program is not rocket science, it's mostly common sense and the will to get things done. And we're going to get this done. This subcommittee, this Congress and the NIH have the opportunity to make it happen in time for many more people today living with Parkinson's. Thank you." 15. Various shots of people applauding 16. Wide shot of hearing room STORYLINE: Two heavyweights - one in the ring and one of the big screen - were on Capitol Hill Wednesday, making their case for more federal dollars for Parkinson's research. Muhammad Ali and Michael J Fox testified before a Senate Appropriations subcommittee, urging lawmakers for more money to help find a cure. Fox, who showed symptoms of the disease by squirming and fidgeting throughout his testimony, said the government needs to be more pro-active. He said scientists are close to unlocking the secret that will lead to a cure, but emphasised they need more funding to do so. Boxing legend Muhammad Ali sat next to Fox during the hearing. Ali's wife Lonnie called Parkinson's disease the "fight of Muhammad's life," and told lawmakers that not coming up with enough money could mean scientists miss finding the cure. Scientists have reported numerous promising approaches to the disease.

The first choice that we must make is the one that will determine our success.

For the people to win politics as usual must lose." 5. Wide shot of rally 6. SOUNDBITE: (English) Arnold Schwarzenegger, California Governor-Elect: "I will reach out to Republicans to Democrats and independents. To those who supported the recall and those who did not.

Standing hand-in-hand with his wife, Kennedy family member Maria Shriver, with her parents, Sargent Shriver and Eunice Kennedy Shriver, close by Schwarzenegger said he wanted to represent all the people of California. Speaking at the Century Plaza Hotel ballroom Schwarzenegger said he had received a gracious phone call from Governor Gray Davis conceding his defeat. Schwarzenegger pledged to bring jobs back to the state, improve education and restore trust in government, and urged his opponents to join him in solving California's problems. Earlier, as televisions in the ballroom monitored Davis' concession speech, the crowd of about 1,000 applauded when Davis said voters had decided it was time for someone else to serve as governor. Schwarzenegger raised at least 21.5 (m) million US dollars for the race, some 10 (m) million US dollars of which from his own pocket. The celebration must quickly give way to planning for a lightning-fast transition that will take place as soon as the election is certified, and no later than November 15. Schwarzenegger's campaign co-chairman, Republican David Dreier, will lead his transition team, campaign spokesman Todd Harris said.

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.

Chirac says no to any second resolution authorising war
 
02:02
1. Reporter asking question 2. SOUNDBITE: (France) Jacques Chirac, French President: "I'll tell you what my feeling is. My belief is that tonight this resolution, which carries an ultimatum - and therefore presenting an international slide towards war - does not have a majority of nine votes." Question: So France doesn't need to use its veto? Chirac: "Apart from that, which is exactly right, France will naturally have a part to play. There are the nations that are voting no, therefore France, there are those who will abstain and in that case there won't be a majority. So in this case there won't be the problem of a veto." Question: And if that's not the case? Chirac: "So, in the second instance, of course people change their minds and according to what I believe are their sentiments at this time and in this case there could easily be a majority of nine or more votes who are for the new resolution - the one which authorises war. In this case France will vote no. But there is a characteristic, that's what one would call the reality of using a veto, that's if one of the members of the Permanent Five, that's the United States, England, Russia, China, France, votes no, even if there is a a majority then the resolution won't be adopted. That's what one would call the right of veto." Question: What's your main position at the moment? Chirac: "No matter what the circumstances we will vote 'no', because it considers, at this time, that there is no place for going to war to achieve the objective that we all want at the moment, that is the disarmament of Iraq." 3. Reporter on camera 4. Wide aerial Chirac talking to the two reporters STORYLINE: President Jacques Chirac said on Monday that France was prepared to veto the US-backed resolution on Iraq if necessary, joining Russia in saying it would vote against giving Saddam Hussein until March 17 to disarm. Chirac said in a televised interview that France would vote against any resolution that contains an ultimatum leading to war: "No matter what the circumstances we will vote 'no.'" It was the first time Chirac explicitly said France would use its veto power as a permanent member of the UN Security Council to block the United States' quest for world body approval for war. However, Chirac also indicated the veto might not be needed because the resolution does not have the nine Security Council votes needed for passage. "Tonight this resolution, which carries an ultimatum ... does not have a majority of nine votes," Chirac said. Chirac's statements came shortly after Russian Foreign Minister Igor Ivanov said Russia - another veto-wielding Security Council member - would vote against the US-British UN resolution.

VICE PRESIDENT JOSHUA NKOMO DIES AGED 82
 
02:43
English/Nat Vice President Joshua Nkomo, the father of Zimbabwe's fight for independence from white colonial rule, has died. He was 82. Nkomo suffered from prostate cancer, and poor health forced him to largely withdraw from political life last year. Thandiwe Nkomo, Nkomo's daughter, said he died around 1:30 a-m local time at Harare's main hospital, on Thursday. Joshua Nkomo was regarded by many as the guiding light of the nation's black nationalist movement, which fought a guerrilla war against white colonial rule for nearly three decades in the former British colony of Rhodesia. But the traditional leader of the minority Ndebele tribe failed to achieve his goal of becoming the first black leader when Rhodesia became independent Zimbabwe in 1980. Zimbabwean president Robert Mugabe, a longtime lieutenant of Nkomo in the nationalist movement, formed a coalition, appointing him in 1980 to the post of Home Affairs Minister in charge of police and internal security. But the alliance was short-lived. In February 1982, Mugabe accused Nkomo of plotting a coup and fired him and three ministers of his Zimbabwe African People's Union party. SOUNDBITE: (English) "I have suffered, I have worked so hard for this county, before independence, and I have worked so hard to make independence stick. And now this man turns round and calls himself a traitor. Me, a traitor- a man who has worked so hard for his county. There is no insult to beat this." SUPER CAPTION: Joshua Nkomo, Nkomo's passport was seized and he was restricted to his home city of Bulawayo in western Zimbabwe. Fighters professing loyalty to Nkomo mounted an armed rebellion. Nkomo saw his sacking as a personal act of revenge by Mugabe. SOUNDBITE: (English) "I have never done anything wrong and Robert (Mugabe) knows this. I tell you, this is for personal power. Let him stand up and deny this. He is frightened of me and my stature and is frightened that he will not win the next election. That is what he is doing- trying to smear me. It is very very sly and very dirty. You don't expect (this) of a president of a country." SUPER CAPTION: Joshua Nkomo Mugabe brutally crushed the insurrection with troops drawn mostly from his majority Shona tribe. Nkomo denied direct links with the rebels, but fled into exile by crossing the Botswana border on foot and in disguise after government troops ransacked his home and killed his driver. He returned to Zimbabwe to negotiate an end to the rebellion and in 1988 signed a peace accord with Mugabe. He rejoined the government as vice president. Joshua Mqabuko Nyongolo Nkomo was born on June 19, 1917. As a young man, he worked as a truck driver and carpenter to raise money for his education in South Africa. On returning to Rhodesia, Nkomo rose through the ranks of youth movements and labour unions to form and lead the African National Congress, the nation's first black nationalist political party, in 1952. In 1957, the African National Youth League merged with Nkomo's ANC and the new group, named the National Democratic Party, elected him president. Colonial authorities banned the NDP five years later. Nkomo reformed it as ZAPU, which was also immediately banned. But as Britain granted independence to its other African colonies in the early 1960s, rivalries in the nationalist movement erupted into violence. Nkomo, Mugabe and other black activist leaders were detained. Rhodesian Prime Minister Ian Smith declared unilateral independence from Britain in 1965 to retain white rule. Nkomo and Mugabe were to remain in detention for ten years. Those talks failed. Nkomo remained in Zambia and two years later merged his guerrilla army with Mugabe's Mozambique-based fighters under the banner of the Patriotic Front.

David Bowie is...’ exhibition makes last, and largest stop, at Brooklyn Museum
 
05:23
(28 Feb 2018) 'DAVID BOWIE IS' EXHIBITION MAKES LAST, AND LARGEST STOP, AT BROOKLYN MUSEUM Five years after premiering in London, a comprehensive David Bowie exhibit is making its last and most potent stop when it opens at the Brooklyn Museum in New York on Friday (2 MARCH). "David Bowie is" will be one of the biggest the museum has ever done. It includes iconic costumes, video footage, and some offbeat items too. Victoria Broackes, from the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, co-curated the exhibit. She explains how Bowie was chosen for the initial 2013 exhibition. "We actually had Bowie on the top of a really short list of people we wanted to cover as a single artist subject at the VNA. But there was very little material, just a couple of collections in the UK, and that was because Bowie had it all, and he had been amassing it over many years. And then in the last ten years or so he was actually buying back material whereas ever came onto the market, which was rarely. So that is so unusual.  I don't know of another artist it's not just a pop artist but he has an archive of 75,000 objects going back to childhood. That is exceptional, "Broackes said. Matthew Yokobosky designed the space at the museum for the massive showing. But when it's over, he's not sure if there's going to be a more permanent place for the material. "The final venue for this exhibition, which is why it had to be just even a little bit more over the top. And you know, what will happen with David's material after is still being discussed." The material includes costumes from many of the Bowie's iconic looks, including Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane, Halloween Jack, Major Tom, and the Thin White Duke. Broackes said that these personas were important to Bowie, because they allowed him to go beyond the music. "We're standing in the video section of the exhibition where we look at how Bowie really from his earliest days was interested in how the music looked, as well as how it sounded. And we have the famous 'Ashes to Ashes' costume by Natasha Korniloff, which she worked - she was a particular dance designer, and worked with Bowie going right back into the early days in the late 60s and 70s. And he worked with her again in 1980 for that video, which you know, we have to think it predates MTV. But Bowie was ahead of the pack in videos, as well as most other things," Broackes said. The exhibition includes approximately 500 objects, including 60 performance costumes, photographs, posters, handwritten lyrics, and videos. Yokobosky highlighted some of the must-see areas, which include many of Bowie's influences. "Yeah, you definitely want to hit the music video room, where the entire room is designed like a lightning bolt. You want to hit the black and white years, which the walls are painted to look like the set from this late 70s concert. You definitely want to look for the early material of influence, from German theater, Japanese theater - I mean, he studied a lot." "David Bowie is" opens on Friday (2 MARCH) and runs through July 15.

KENYA: NAIROBI: PRESIDENT DANIEL ARAP MOI SWORN IN UPDATE (2)
 
01:56
Natural Sound Kenyan President Daniel arap Moi was sworn in for his fifth and final five-year term on Monday. Presidents Yoweri Museveni of Uganda and Benjamin Mkapa of Tanzania, attended the ceremony in a show of support for one of Africa's longest-serving leaders. The Kenyan President was out at the Nairobi airport to greet his African neighbours - the presidents of Tanzania and Uganda - on Monday. They were in Kenya to attend his swearing-in for another five year term. First to arrive was President Benjamin Mkapa of Tanzania followed by Yoweri Museveni - the President of Uganda. The East African leaders came to join in the celebrations in a symbolic gesture of support for the 73-year-old President Moi. Five thousand Kenyans, some carrying posters of Moi, also crowded onto a grassy hill overlooking Nairobi's Uhuru Park to watch their president be sworn in. It was in this park where President Daniel arap Moi, one of Africa's longest-serving leaders, first took the oath of office following the death of Jomo Kenyatta in 1978. Moi first inspected a guard of honour made up of members of the 70th Battalion of the Kenyan army, which prevented a coup against Moi in 1982. Then the 73-year-old ruler was sworn in by Chief Justice Zaccheus Chesoni. During the ceremony he swore to perform the duties of the president of the Republic of Kenya faithfully, and "with commitment and clear conscience" and he said he would "champion all the people according to the law without fear, favour or hatred". Moi's swearing-in comes after last week's chaotic election. It ran for an unprecedented second day and was marred by charges of rigging and eight deaths in political violence. Moi's two nearest challengers - Mwai Kibaki, his vice president for a decade, and Raila Odinga, son of an independence leader - rejected Moi's victory and called for a new vote. But on Sunday, the Electoral Commission Chairman Samuel Kivuitu officially confirmed what unofficial results already had shown - that Moi had won with 40 percent of the vote. But Moi remains unpopular with most Kenyans - 60 percent didn't vote for him but instead chose one of 13 challengers. Critics blame Moi for rampant corruption and inept management that have badly damaged this once prosperous former British colony's economy.

Colin Farrell and Martin McDonagh discuss the dark comedy
 
07:13
London, 10 August 2012 6 mins approx 1. Sitdown interview with Colin Farrell and Martin McDonagh including the following soundbites: "I didn't feel any pressure because of how well 'In Bruges' did in certain aspects, at all. So there was the familiarity of already having worked together and knowing Martin (McDonagh) for 10 years but there was also just a freshness of having this new experience as well, because the script was...it didn't feel anything like 'In Bruges' and the character I played in this felt completely different. Like if I had of played Billy it would have been closer to Ray, in 'In Bruges,' who was, you know, constantly saying what seemingly socially were inappropriate things and acting in kind of violent ways, kind of almost a fractured character who capsulated a load of different characters in one guy, but I was playing something completely different, so it was a new experience of discovery for me within a very familiar framework of working with this man." "No. No, it's much easier than that. I wrote it in London rather than L.A. and it wasn't on commission, it was just me burrowing away, just thinking about crazy stuff. So no, my lifestyle isn't like the lifestyle of the writer that you play who has my name in the film. No, it's much more...it's probably less exciting but it's probably easier to do." Reporter: "Slightly less dangerous for a start?" Martin McDonagh: "Yes. It's much more sexy my way." "I loved working with him. He's just brilliant. He's just so unique and I grew up watching so many of his films and so if you ever get the chance to work with someone who's work you've admired for years, you feel like you have a bit of a relationship with them already - all be it a one sided relationship if you're aware of it, if you're not then you're insane - so I had a one-sided relationship with him already and then I met him. I was nervous working with him, so much respect there and so much fondness and that familiarity, which is based on an illusion. Of course you meet the person and they sound the same but you don't know anything about them. He was just wonderful to watch work, every single scene, every single word that he uttered was just so interesting that at times is was hard not to just get caught up as a fan in the scene. And yet there is such a uniqueness to that man that there's a certain part of that that was ok in the scene as well because the character I was playing would find the character that Chris (Walken) was playing odd because of the things he was saying and the way he was saying them, so it was kind of trying to find the balance between how much can I go (pulls face) and how much of that is Colin (Farrell) just going (pulls face). How much of it is the character?" "The dog was genius." Martin McDonagh: "The best of all of us." Colin Farrell: "The dog was the most professional actor on the set, any given day. Really was." Martin McDonagh: "Quiet as a mouse the whole time." Colin Farrell: "Quiet as a mouse, which is unusual for a dog, but it really was. Bonny the Shih Tzu. Chris (Walken) fell in love with the dog. They had a really good relationship." "When you're story boarding or directing those scenes you want them to be as cinematic or as graphic or as true actually. You want to explore the truth of how awful violence is and then be able to comment on it, so it was, strangely it's all ketchup-y blood, so you're adding all that stuff and you're making sure the prosthetics...so it's just, the details of it when you're working first hand, it's fun and silly. It's only when it's cut together that it looks so appalling." "Yes, we're looking for seven. Colin Farrell: "I told you to shoot it in black and white, you f**ker."

President Bush ducks as man throws shoes at him in protest

George W Bush got a size-10 reminder of the fervent opposition to his policies when a man threw two shoes at him - one after another - during a news conference with Iraq Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki. 1.

Bush starting to speak, man identified as Muntadar al-Zeidi, correspondent for Al-Baghdadiya television, stands up and throws shoe at Bush, Bush ducks. Pull back wide, man throws second shoe, Bush ducks. Security hold man on the floor UPSOUND: shouting 4. Slow Motion sequence of man throwing shoes STORYLINE His legacy forever linked to an unpopular war, President George W. Bush visited Iraq under intense security on Sunday and declared that the long, hard conflict was necessary to protect the United States and give Iraqis hope. But he got a size-10 reminder of the fervent opposition to his policies when a man threw two shoes at him - one after another - during a news conference with Iraq Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki. This is the end," shouted the man, later identified as Muntadar al-Zeidi, a correspondent for Al-Baghdadiya television, an Iraqi-owned station based in Cairo, Egypt. Bush ducked both throws. Neither leader was hit. In Iraqi culture, throwing shoes at someone is a sign of contempt - Iraqis whacked a statue of Saddam Hussein with their shoes after US Marines toppled it to the ground after the 2003 invasion. "All I can report," Bush joked after the incident, "is a size 10." The US president visited the Iraqi capital just 37 days before he hands the war off to President-elect Barack Obama, who has pledged to end it.

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.
