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

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

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

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

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.

Members of K-pop group NCT 127 visit the LA Zoo to meet a pudu named Haechan
 
05:22
(15 May 2019) MEMBERS OF K-POP GROUP NCT 127 VISIT THE LA ZOO TO MEET A BABY DEER NAMED HAECHAN Fans of the K-pop group NCT 127 made a donation January to name a baby pudu at the Los Angeles Zoo after one of the group's members, Haechan. Wednesday (15 MAY 2019), Haechan took selfies with his namesake. Recently born at the Los Angeles Zoo, the deer became the latest K-pop sensation for NCT 127 fans.  The pudu is found in various parts of South America.  It's considered to be one of the smallest deer species in the world.  The baby male was born 19 December 2018. The pudu became an internet sensation after the zoo shared the birth announcement on social media when K-pop fans began calling the mammal "Baby Haechan."  The zoo decided to officially name the pudu Haechan after fans raised $2,000 online for the cause. Stopping in Los Angeles, Haechan got to meet his namesake in person. "He actually knew about the pudu first from the fans and so to be able to have a pudu named after him through the fans' donations and through the fans' support, he feels very honored to be able to have that opportunity," explained bandmate Mark, translating for Haechan. The group watched as the pudu ate kale, leaves and roses. Haechan didn't agree with fans that he looked like the pudu. But he did say he eats like the small deer: a lot. The K-pop band was brought into the zoo on a cart, passing many other animals, stopping to meet a porcupine up close. "Well, definitely now that I'm at the zoo I feel like my younger me is coming out right now," said NCT 127 member Johnny.  "I'm very excited, I can't stop smiling.  I saw all these animals coming here.  We saw some porcupines, some turtles -- excites me every time.  I love zoos." The K-pop group is currently on their world tour, where they performed in LA Sunday night. "We're doing lots of good experiences like coming to the zoo and we did a lot in America — and meeting our friends really closely is also really good.  So we're having fun," said group member Jaehyun. In order to perfect their various dance performances, group members practice choreography for three days. "No, it's definitely like all day but when we practice all day we get it down and as Haechan said practice until it's perfect and it's never perfect," said Johnny. The NCT 127 tour ends in Toronto this 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 of Kalam STORYLINE : A missile scientist who advocates nuclear weapons as a war deterrent was sworn in as India's new president on Thursday. APJ Abdul Kalam took the oath of office given by Supreme Court Chief Justice BN Kirpal at a brief ceremony in India's circular pink sandstone parliament building. The 20-minute ceremony was witnessed by Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, his cabinet members, lawmakers and diplomats. In his acceptance speech, Kalam said India should brace itself to face the growing threats posed by terrorism, internal conflicts and unemployment and have a long term vision to transform itself into a developed country. Kalam was elected last Thursday. Both the Hindu nationalist-led governing coalition and the major opposition Congress party had backed Kalam. The 70-year-old military scientist embodies India's multi-communal makeup as the son of minority Muslim parents who has embraced the Hindu beliefs of the majority. The new president also symbolises his country's political and strategic ambitions. For more than four decades, Kalam worked in India's defence laboratories, spearheading its space and nuclear-capable missile programme. He was part of the team that conducted five underground nuclear tests in May 1998 that triggered a chain reaction of global criticism, economic sanctions and matching tests by neighbouring Pakistan. Kalam strongly advocates scientific education and invited more than 100 schoolchildren to Thursday's ceremony. For many Indians, Kalam's rise, from humble beginnings as the son of an illiterate boatman in southern Tamil Nadu state to the top of India's scientific and political establishment, symbolises the strength of India's democracy. But critics of Vajpayee's Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party say Kalam's choice was to paper over the anti-Muslim image that the government acquired after sectarian violence broke out in Gujarat state in February.

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.

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".

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.

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.

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.

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.

Heated exchange as CEO of investment bank testifies, protest

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."

Aerial of the fountain QUEEN OPENS DIANA MEMORIAL Queen Elizabeth II, who dedicated a fountain in honour of Princess Diana on Tuesday, acknowledged that there had been difficult times with her late daughter-in-law but "memories mellow with the passing of the years." The queen, her husband Prince Philip and Diana's former husband, Prince Charles, joined with Diana's family to formally open the 3.6 million pound (US$6.5 million) oval granite water feature in Hyde Park. It was the Spencer family's first public appearance with the royal family since Diana's funeral in 1997, when Earl Spencer criticised the royals for their treatment of his sister. The queen acknowledged that Diana's death gripped the world's attention. On a personal note, the queen remarked that Diana "made such an impact on our lives." "Of course there were difficult times, but memories mellow with the passing of the years.I remember especially the happiness she gave to my two grandsons," the queen said, referring to Princes William and Harry, who also attended the ceremony. Construction of the fountain, designed by American architect Karen Gustafson and built of 545 blocks of Cornish granite, was delayed by bureaucratic wrangling and arguments within the Memorial Fountain Committee headed by Diana's friend Rosa Monckton. The fountain is an oval, roughly 80 meters (260 feet) meters by 50 meters (165 feet). Water flows from the highest point down both sides; at some places the flow is agitated, at others calm. The Royal Parks and the Department for Culture, Media and Sport provided extra funds when the installation ran 600,000 pounds (US$1.1 million) over budget.

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

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.

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

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.

SOUNDBITE: (English) Kofi Annan, Secretary General of United Nations: "I think 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 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. SOUNDBITE: (English) Nelson Mandela, Former President of South Africa: "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." Soweto 8. Kofi Annan laying a wreath at the Hector Peterson memorial grave 9. Various of Hector Peterson memorial grave 10. Various of Kofi Annan and wife watching traditional dancers 11. Kofi Annan getting into a car to go 12. 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.

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.

Nepal: Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Visit - 1995
 
02:30
U-S First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton is taking her campaign for women and children's rights to yet another South Asian nation: Nepal. This is her third stop on a 12 day tour of the region. Her daughter, Chelsea, is with her in Kathmandu where they called on the King and Queen of Nepal and the country's prime minister. They rolled out the red carpet for the U-S first lady. On hand to greet her was Nepal's Queen Aishwarya Shah. Princess Sruti is seen here being introduced to Chelsea, the Clinton's daughter. Mrs. Clinton and her daughter visited this exhibit of crafts made by poor women who are being helped to turn traditional skills into a source of income. She seemed delighted with this hand woven shawl. In fact, she wore it- or one much like it- to this official function later in the day. This is a country where most women have a tough life and few options. The literacy rate for women is 18 per cent- it's 52 per cent for men. Women have a life expectancy of only 52 years and give birth to an average of five children. But most have more then five pregnancies because their babies don't survive. Ten out of every 100 babies die in infancy. The first lady made it a point to visit women from all walks of life. She "did lunch" with prominent Nepali women and visited a heath care centre run by American women in Kathmandu. Her visit also included an audience with Nepal's communist prime minister, Man Mohan Adhikari, and with King Birenda, who four years ago yielded to a pro-democracy movement and accepted a constitutional monarchy. Nepal is the only official Hindu state in world. About 90 per cent of the population are Hindu. Buddhists and Muslims comprise less than 10 per cent. Nepal's 20 million population is expected to double by the year 2025. On Saturday, Mrs. Clinton and Chelsea take a day off their official schedule to relax at an isolated Nepali wildlife retreat. They travel to Bangladesh on Sunday.

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.

SOUNDBITE: (English) Haruki Murakami, Novelist and winner of 2009 Jerusalem prize: "After receiving notice of this award I asked myself whether travelling to Israel at a time like this and accepting a literary prize is a proper thing to do and whether this creates the impression I supported one side in the conflict and that I endorse the policies of a nation that chose to unleash it's overwhelming military power. Neither of course do I see my books subjected to a boycott. Finally however, after careful consideration, I made up my mind to come here.

It is something I keep in my mind, always keep in my mind while I am writing fiction. I have never gone so far as to write it on a piece of paper and paste it to the wall, rather it is carved into the wall of my mind.

In remarks he made after he received the 2009 Jerusalem prize, Murakami said he had been "advised" not to visit Israel after its ferocious assault on the Gaza Strip. But he said he ignored the warning. "Like many other novelists I tend to do the exact opposite of what I'm told," he said, to raucous applause. On a more serious note the novelist added, "I chose to see for myself rather than not to see." He had thought long and hard about his decision, he told the audience, which included Israeli President Shimon Peres. "I asked myself whether travelling to Israel at a time like this and accepting a literary prize is a proper thing to do and whether this creates the impression I supported one side in the conflict and that I endorse the policies of a nation that chose to unleash it's overwhelming military power." Murakami had said in an earlier interview with Israeli newspaper Yediot Ahronot that his main criticism of the Israeli offensive in Gaza was over the vast difference in size between the two sides.

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

The Duchess of Cambridge dances with Paddington Bear
 
03:13
(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.

Trump 'proud' to shut down govt. over border wall
 
02:15
(11 Dec 2018) President Donald Trump is escalating his shutdown threat over U.S.-Mexico border wall funding at a heated White House meeting with Democratic leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. Trump said during the open-press session Tuesday that, "If we don't have border security, we'll shut down the government." He says his long-promised wall will be built one way or another. Government funding for some agencies is set to expire on Dec. 21, threatening a partial shutdown. Schumer and Pelosi are urging the president to find another solution, with Schumer saying "we shouldn't shut down the government over a dispute." Trump is responding by saying he's "proud to shut down the government" and says he will "take the mantle." Pelosi is also commenting on the meeting's acrimony, noting "this has spiraled downwards."

(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.

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.

(Reporter: "People are continuing to die.") "The work has been given, assigned to Kofi Annan." (Reporter: Will you go to Nairobi?) "To do what?" (Reporter: "I don't know, I'm asking you.") "To do what? There is Kofi Annan, Kofi Annan is enough there with his team." 13. Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe and aides making way through delegates 14. Various of Mbeki leaving UNECA building after meeting STORYLINE: President Mwai Kibaki of Kenya on Friday indicated his rival, opposition leader Raila Odinga, should go to court to resolve the country's deadly presidential election dispute. The Kenyan leader was briefing leaders at the African Union (AU) summit on the elections, according to a Kenyan government statement. The situation in Kenya continued to dominate discussions as African leaders met in Addis Ababa for a second day of talks at the three-day AU summit. More than 800 people have been killed across Kenya and tens of thousands have fled their homes since a December 27 vote Kenyan President Mwai Kibaki is accused of rigging. 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.

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.

Various of St Peter's Square STORYLINE Roman Catholic cardinals at the Vatican remained tight-lipped on Friday as they began a final series of meetings ahead of the Conclave, due to start on Monday afternoon. Cardinal Walter Kasper of Germany said the talks were going well, and he was hoping for a good result. The cardinals have been meeting for the past week to discuss the forthcoming election, which will decide the future direction of the Catholic church following the death of John Paul II. Many are speculating about the selection process of picking the successor to Pope John Paul II. Some pilgrims gathered at Saint Peter's Square said they want to see a Latin American pope succeed John Paul. Latin America will have 20 cardinals in the conclave, and some observers think the predominantly Spanish-speaking region could have its first pope. Among the most talked about candidates is Honduras Cardinal Oscar Andres Rodriguez Maradiaga. Like John Paul II, who was the first non-Italian pope in 455 years, high on his resume are his skills as a linguist, including command of Italian.

The two presidents walking up stairs and entering house, zoom out to wide of property STORYLINE: Relations are rocky between President George W. Bush and Russian President Vladimir Putin, but their meeting began Sunday with handshakes and smiles, and flowers and kisses from Putin for first lady Laura Bush and Bush's mother. Bush waited at his family's Maine seacoast estate as his father, former President George H.W. Bush, met Putin at a nearby airport and rode with the Russian leader in a helicopter to the compound. Emerging from a limousine, Putin handed large bouquets of flowers to Laura Bush and former first lady Barbara Bush, then kissed them on both cheeks. "It's pretty casual up here - unstructured," Bush said about the setting for his talks with Putin. Bush knows what he wants from the visit: convince Putin that a U.S. missile defence system in Eastern Europe would not threaten Russia. Bring the Kremlin behind tough new penalties aimed at Iran's suspected nuclear weapons programme. Generally defrost relations. What the Russian president seeks is less clear. Putin requested a meeting with Bush before going to Guatemala, where Olympic officials are picking a host city for the 2014 winter games.

SOUNDBITE: (Arabic) Hassan Ankoni, Released Lebanese Prisoner: "This is a great victory for us and with God's help we'll liberate the rest of our land and Shabaa (a village on the border of Israel and Lebanon) and our prisoners from the Israeli prisons." 14. Various of former prisoners in airport building STORYLINE: Lebanese and other Arab prisoners freed in a mass exchange of prisoners with Israel arrived in Beirut on Thursday night to a rousing welcome from the Cabinet and thousands of people. The German government plane, which touched down at 7:08 p.m. (1708 GMT), had flown from a military base near Cologne where the more than two dozen Arab prisoners were exchanged earlier on Thursday for an Israeli businessman and the bodies of three Israeli soldiers killed on the Lebanese-Israeli border in 2000. Minutes earlier, an Israeli plane landed in Tel Aviv, Israel, carrying the businessman, Elhanan Tannenbaum and the coffins of the three soldiers. Israel arranged a memorial service for the dead soldiers. Sheik Abdel Karim Obeid, a Hezbollah leader and one of the most famous prisoners released, was the first to disembark at Beirut airport. Sporting a long beard and white Shiite Muslim turban, he walked steadily toward a group of government officials. He was followed by another famous ex-prisoner, Mustafa Dirani, a leader of Hezbollah. Lebanese President Emile Lahoud, Cabinet ministers and Hezbollah guerrilla leader Sheik Hassan Nasrallah welcomed the prisoners on the airport tarmac. Obeid burst into tears as his children and relatives hugged and kissed him. The other prisoners were also mobbed by their families. Thousands of supporters of Hezbollah lined the airport highway to greet the more than two dozen freed prisoners with flags, patriotic songs and fireworks. Hezbollah laid on a massive rally for the prisoners in its south Beirut stronghold. An estimated 10-thousand people had gathered for the rally by the time the plane landed. The Lebanese prisoners, who number 21 according to Hezbollah's Al Manar television, and seven other Arabs were flown to Germany on an Israeli Air Force plane early on Thursday. At about the same time, a German Air Force plane took off from Lebanon bearing Tannenbaum and the three soldiers' coffins. As part of the complex deal, Israel earlier on Thursday freed about 400 Palestinians to the West Bank and Gaza Strip. They were greeted by jubilant relatives, many of whom expressed thanks to Hezbollah. At a border crossing in south Lebanon on Thursday, Israel handed over the remains of 60 guerrillas to the International Committee of the Red Cross.

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.

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