Pakistan: Britain's Princess Diana Visits - 1996
 
02:47
Britain's Princess Diana has walked into controversy in Pakistan with a visit to a cancer hospital run by sporting hero Imran Khan. Although she says she is just helping with fund-raising, critics say Khan is using the visit to boost his political career. During her visit Diana met young patients being treated at the hospital with Khan's British-born wife Jemima and Lady Annabel Goldsmith, his mother-in-law. Dressed in a light-blue traditional Pakistani shalwar kameez - trousers and long shirt - the Princess of Wales made what was supposed to be a private visit to Imran Khan's cancer hospital. A frequent visitor to British hospitals - Diana showed a sure touch when she met patients and staff. The woman who wants to be known as the "Queen of Hearts" came on a goodwill mission to the Shaukat Khanum Memorial Hospital in the city of Lahore. The Princess toured the hospital with Imran, her host in Pakistan, his English wife Jemima and Lady Annabel Goldsmith, Imran's mother-in-law. She sat at the bedsides of several young patients - held their hands and talked to doctors about their treatment. However, some people were shocked by the Princess's forward style in a country where some people think it rude for a man to touch a female stranger. The hospital was founded by Imran Khan to care for patients with cancer. He says his intentions are purely charitable, but the government believes he is using the hospital to increase his popularity - before he becomes a politician. State-run Pakistani TV cut Imran out of pictures of the visit. After lunch, Diana attended a children's party on the wards. She was welcomed by women throwing handfuls of flower petals into a huge tent full of patients and staff. Together with Jemima Khan, the Princess watched a display of singing and dancing by young patients which both seemed to enjoy. The two were presented with garlands by well-wishers. The Princess was Thursday night - a guest-of-honour at a fund-raising dinner. She flies back to Britain on Friday.

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.

SOUNDBITE (Turkish) Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Turkish Prime Minister: (taken from simultaneous translation) "I feel that you perhaps feel a bit guilty and that is why perhaps you have been so strong in your words, so loud.

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.

KOREA: REMAINS OF US SOLDIERS KILLED IN KOREAN WAR ARE RECOVERED
 
02:49
English/Nat Four sets of remains, believed to be those of U-S soldiers killed in the Korean War nearly a half century ago, were returned from North Korea on Monday. They were the latest remains to be repatriated from North Korea since the United States was given access to the reclusive communist country a year and a half ago. About 8,100 U-S servicemen remain unaccounted for from the war in which more than 50-thousand Americans died. The remains were found by a 10-member U-S forensics team sent to the North in June to search for Americans from the 1950-53 Korean War. Heavily cloudy skies and occasional rain greeted the return of the remains at this border village inside the demilitarized zone that separates the two rival Koreas. Four North Korean soldiers handed the caskets containing the skeletal remains across the border. They were received one by one by a U-N honour guard of four soldiers from the United States, Thailand, the Philippines and Columbia. Monday's return follows a new agreement reached in May for three recovery operations this year. U-S officials said the remains were recovered from an area about 30 kilometers (20 miles) south of the Chinese border where about 350 Americans are thought to have been killed in combat in October 1950. So far, 209 sets of remains have been returned to the United States but only seven sets have been positively identified. About 8100 U-S servicemen remain unaccounted for from the war, in which more than 50-thousand Americans died. The recovery of remains of American war dead is a key U-S demand for improving relations with North Korea. SOUNDBITE: (English) "We have a journey home for four U-S soldiers who made the ultimate sacrifice during the Korean conflict in 1950." SUPER CAPTION: Alan Liotta, U.S. Department of Defence Prisoner Of War Missing Personnel Department After a short service the remains were flown to the Central Identification Laboratory in Hawaii for forensic tests. The first joint U-S-North Korea recovery was in 1996, when one set of remains believed to be those of a U-S soldier was returned. This latest return comes only a day before North Korean negotiators are scheduled to sit down in New York with representatives of South Korea, China and the United States to begin talks on a permanent peace treaty. The Korean War ended without a peace treaty, only a shaky armistice that left the two Koreas still technically at war. Their border remains the most heavily guarded in the world, with two (m) million troops on both sides.

Former terrorism advisor Richard Clarke testifies on 9/11
 
03:55
1. Richard Clarke walking into hearing room 2. Clarke sitting down at witness table, pan over to commission members 3. Clarke raises his right hand and takes oath 4. Commission Chair Thomas Kean 5. SOUNDBITE: (English) Richard Clarke, Former White House Counter-terrorism Adviser "I also welcome the hearings because it is finally a forum where I can apologise to the loved ones of the victims of 9-11. To them who are here in the room, to those who are watching on television, your government failed you. Those entrusted with protecting you failed you, and I failed you. We tried hard, but that doesn't matter because we failed. And for that failure, I would ask, once all the facts are out, for your understanding and your forgiveness." 6. Various of hearing 7. SOUNDBITE: (English) Timothy Roemer, 9/11 Commission Member "How high a priority was fighting al-Qaida in the Bush administration?" 8. SOUNDBITE: (English) Richard Clarke, Former White House Counter-terrorism Adviser "I believe the Bush administration, in the first eight months, considered terrorism an important issue but not an urgent issue." 9. Wide shots of hearing 10. SOUNDBITE: (English) John Lehman, 9/11 Commission Member "The inconsistency between what your promoters are putting out and what you said as late as August 05, you've got a real credibility problem. And because of my real genuine, long-term admiration for you, I hope you resolve that credibility problem, because I hate to see you become totally shoved to one side during a presidential campaign as an active partisan selling a book." 11. SOUNDBITE: (English) Richard Clarke, Former White House Counter-terrorism Adviser "I've been accused of being a member of John Kerry's campaign team several times this week, including by the White House. The White House has said that my book is an audition for a high level position in the Kerry campaign. So let me say here as I am under oath, that I will not accept any position in the Kerry administration should there be one, on the record, under oath." 12. Mid shot of hearing 13. SOUNDBITE: (English) Richard Clarke, Former White House Counter-terrorism Adviser "In the 15 hours of testimony, no one asked me what I thought about the president's invasion of Iraq. And the reason I am strident in my criticism of the president of the United States is because by invading Iraq - something I was not asked about by the commission, something I chose to write a lot about in the book - by invading Iraq, the president of the United States has greatly undermined the war on terrorism." 14. Wide pan of hearing STORYLINE: The US government's former top counterterrorism adviser apologised to the families of September 11 victims on Wednesday, saying "your government failed you." Richard Clarke made the comments just before testifying before a bipartisan commission investigating the September 11, 2001, attacks. It was the second day of hearings with Bush and Clinton administration officials as the commission tried to determine what went wrong in the efforts to stop al-Qaida before the 9/11 attacks. Clarke, who has received much attention in recent days for the release of his book, which is highly critical of the Bush administration for its response to al-Qaida, delivered a sharp attack against President Bush and his top advisers. He said although he continued to describe terrorism as an urgent problem, the Bush administration never treated it that way. In comparison, Clarke said the Clinton administration had "no higher priority" than combating terror. Clarke said he was so frustrated by the Bush team's lack of urgency that he asked to be reassigned.

William, Kate, George and Charlotte spend Christmas with the Middletons
 
02:19
(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.

POLAND: KRAKOW: POPE JOHN PAUL II VISITS PARENTS' GRAVE
 
03:07
Natural Sound As his tour of his homeland draws to a close, Pope John Paul the Second has visited the tomb of his parents in Krakow. The pontiff also said Mass at the church where he gave his first service as a priest. And later in the day he visited a new heart surgery clinic that has been named after him. In what many believe will be his last visit to Poland, Pope John Paul the Second visited his parent's grave in Krakow on Monday. There is no mention of the pope, but people visit the tomb to pay their respects to his family, even when the pontiff is not in town. A choir sang as the 77-year-old kneeled before the tombstone and prayed. The simple, granite gravestone is engraved with the names of his mother, father and brother. Just 10 metres (25 feet) away are the graves of Red Army soldiers and a monument dedicated to their heroism in World War Two. The pope lit a candle in front of the tomb. Sprays of roses in the Polish and Vatican colours - red and white and yellow and white - decorated the modest tomb. The pope began the day with a private Mass in a chapel at Wawel Royal Cathedral, where he held his first service as a priest in 1946. Later in the day, he opened a new heart surgery clinic, that has been named after him. The pontiff met with recent transplant patients and told them he understood what they were going through first hand. The ageing pope has gone through a series of operations in recent years, including a hip replacement and removal of what the Vatican says was a benign colon tumour. Many Poles fear this could be the last visit for John Paul. But church officials suggested he may return next year, when he has been invited for the one-thousandth anniversary of the city of Gdansk on the Baltic coast. The pope returns to Rome on Tuesday after spending 11 days in his homeland.

CUBA: RUSSIAN PRESIDENT PUTIN VISIT
 
02:29
Natural Sound The first visit to Cuba by a Russian President since the collapse of the Soviet Union entered its first full day on Thursday in Havana with a schedule of talks and official ceremony. Putin arrived in Havana late on Wednesday for a two-day state visit aimed at reviving historic ties between the two former Cold War allies. On Thursday, he joined President Fidel Castro in saluting the Cuban flag in Revolution Palace. Putin, in a dark suit and tie, and Castro, in his customary olive green uniform and cap, then stood to attention as a Cuban military band played the national anthems of both countries outside the Palace of the Revolution. Both leaders then paused for an official photo. The two presidents appeared to be chatting amiably through an interpreter. After greeting a Russian delegation and members of Cuba's top leadership, the two presidents held formal talks inside the palace and signed a series of accords. Six documents were prepared for the trip, including agreements on cooperation in legal affairs and health. Apparently not wanting to interrupt Putin's visit with a public statement on the new American president, Castro's government made no immediate comment on George W. Bush's victory late Wednesday night. But a press conference was scheduled after the two leaders signed documents of cooperation, and questions are expected to be put to Putin. Castro has long said he didn't expect any changes under Bush or Vice President Al Gore, but the vice president was largely seen as the lesser of two evils.

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.

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".

Heated exchange as CEO of investment bank testifies, protest

(28 Apr 2010) TRUE DATE CREATED = 28-04-2010 1. Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein being sworn in for testimony at a Capitol Hill hearing, push in to Senator Carl Levin 2. Wide shot of Senate panel 3. 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."

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.

ZAIRE:KINSHASA: PRESIDENT MOBUTO GIVES UP POWER
 
03:01
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". SUPER CAPTION: Vox pop - Kinshasa resident SOUNDBITE: (English) "They've chosen this place for an evacuation for the gathering of all the Commonwealth citizens if something happens and if there is an evacuation". SUPER CAPTION: Narmin Kassam, Canadian citizen, owner of sports club in Kinshasa SOUNDBITE: (French) "If there is confirmation that President Mobutu has definitely left then that's good news because that means it'll prevent the carnage that was expected in Kinshasa and I hope that President Mobutu will so that there is an immediate resignation in order to ensure a peaceful transition of power with the forces of change". SUPER CAPTION: Mukendi Wa Mulumba, adviser to former Zairean Prime Minister Etienne Tshisekedi SOUNDBITE: (French) "These last 32 years have been catastrophic for the economy, for society as a whole, therefore we think that Kabila is today considered the lesser of two evils, and it is with this in mind that I feel at this moment the Zairean people await Kabila's arrival".

UN Secretary General meets Nelson Mandela, visit Soweto

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.

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.

Obama talks about relationship with Australia; joke about local accent
 
03:19
(16 Nov 2011) 1. Wide of U.S. President Barack Obama being introduced to speak 2. Obama walking onto stage 3. SOUNDBITE: (English) Barack Obama, U.S. President: "Our guys, the Americans, couldn't figure out why your guys were always talking about cheese. All day long. Morning, noon and night. 'Why are the Aussies always talking about cheese?' and then finally, they realised it was their Australian friends just saying hello. Just saying 'Cheers.' So, we Americans and Australians, we may not always speak the same way or use the same words, but I think it's pretty clear, especially from the spirit of this visit and our time together this evening, that we understand each other." 4. Wide of Obama speaking 5. SOUNDBITE: (English) Barack Obama, U.S. President: ++part of soundbite is overlaid with wide of Obama speaking, applause, close up of Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard++ "I know there's some concern here that your Australian language is being Americanised. So, perhaps it's time for us to reverse the trend. Tonight, with your permission, I'd like to give it a "burl" (I'd like to give it a try). I want to thank the prime minister for a very productive meeting that we had today. I think she'll agree that it was a real 'chinwag' (discussion/gossip). When Julia and I meet, we listen to each other, we learn from each other. It's not just a lot of 'earbashing', that's a good one, 'earbashing', I can use that in Washington, because there's a lot of 'earbashing' sometimes." 6. Wide of Obama speaking 7. SOUNDBITE: (English) Barack Obama, U.S. President: ++part of soundbite is overlaid with wide of audience, applause++ "It's that moment, in the midst of battle, when the bullets are flying and the outcome is uncertain, when Americans and Aussies look over at each other, knowing that we've got each other's backs, knowing in our hearts: 'no worries, she'll be right" (all will be ok). And so tonight, as we mark 60 years of this remarkable alliance through war and peace, hardship and prosperity, we gather together amongst so many friends who sustained the bonds between us and we can say with confidence and with pride, the alliance between the United States and Australia is deeper and stronger, than it's ever been, 'spot on' (exactly), 'crackerjack" (the best), 'in top nick' (perfect condition). Thank you very much everybody." 8. Wide of Obama walking back to table STORYLINE: US President Barack Obama endeared himself to the Australians in a Wednesday night dinner speech calling them "Aussies" and trying his hand at some local slang. "We can say with confidence and with pride, the alliance between the United States and Australia is deeper and stronger, than it's ever been, 'spot on' (exactly), 'crackerjack" (the best), 'in top nick' (perfect condition)," he said. Obama, who has announced a new security agreement with Australia that is widely viewed as a response to Beijing's growing aggressiveness, is on the second stop on a nine-day tour of the Asia-Pacific region. The agreement will expand the U.S. military presence in Australia, positioning more U.S. personnel and equipment there, and increasing American access to bases. About 250 U.S. Marines will begin a rotation in northern Australia starting next year, with a full force of 2,500 military personnel staffing up over the next several years. The U.S. and smaller Asian nations have grown increasingly concerned about China claiming dominion over vast areas of the Pacific that the U.S. considers international waters, and reigniting old territorial disputes, including confrontations over the South China Sea.

The service at Saint George's Chapel was private, though a subdued crowd of nearly three thousand wellwishers had gathered outside the gates. The principal mourners were Margaret's children, Viscount Linley and Lady Sarah Chatto, along with the queen, Prince Philip, Prince Charles and Margaret's former husband, the Earl of Snowdon. The 101-year-old Queen Mother arrived in a people carrier and entered the building through a different entrance to the rest of her family. Some 450 people, including more than 30 royals, attended the funeral service for the 71-year-old younger sister of Queen Elizabeth II. The princess's rose-covered coffin was shrouded in her red, blue and gold-coloured personal standard during the funeral service. Following cremation at nearby Slough Crematorium, Margaret's ashes were to be placed in the Royal Vault at Saint George's Chapel.

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."

Singer-songwriter Lissie goes it alone after being dropped by record label
 
03:54
(25 Nov 2016) SINGER-SONGWRITER LISSIE GOES IT ALONE AFTER BEING DROPPED BY RECORD LABEL Lissie Maurus - or Lissie to her fans - was well on her way to making it big a decade ago. She had a deal with Columbia Records U.K. and a first album that went gold in the United Kingdom and Norway. The record sold well, but when her second L.P. wasn't a commercial success, she found herself without a record deal and at a crossroads. What kind of artist did she want to be? Was her pursuit of fame really worth it? Lissie opted for the uncharted territory of the independent artist - based from an Iowa farm, no less. It is a more viable business model in this age when singers can reach potential fans more easily via music streaming services and online sales. But there certainly are no guarantees. After Columbia Records U.K. dropped her, Lissie says she felt a little like she'd failed. But she said she also was relieved. Now she could do things her way. By mid-2015, she took what savings she had and bought the farm she now calls home. "I think some people were like, 'Well that's weird that you're going to, like, leave southern California and go live on a farm in Iowa, but OK.' You know, but I just knew, this is what I have to do. I have a gut feeling about this," she said. "I kind of just told everyone, like, 'I need to re-evaluate my life. I'm not going to stop making music. But I need to rethink how I want to go about it.'" By the time she moved to the farm, Lissie had already written some new songs. So she called producer and bass player Curt and together, they wrote the title track on her latest album, "My Wild West." The record came out in February and was well reviewed. Lissie also recently released a live acoustic album, recorded at Union Chapel in North London. Admittedly, she says, the traveling can be brutal. She's been touring in the United States and Europe much of this year. But because her overheads are low, most of what she makes in ticket and merchandise sales is hers. Financially, she says, this could be her best year yet. "I own all my new music, and I can go out and tour with just an acoustic guitar and sell out shows and, you know, come home and be like, 'OK, now I can put in a wood burning stove in my house,'" she smiled. Lissie's third album "My Wild West" is available now.

Audience clapping STORYLINE: Former South African President Nelson Mandela says he hopes to visit Cuba soon, perhaps before the end of the year. Mandela made the announcement with Cuban leader Fidel Castro at his side after talks in Johannesburg on Sunday. Castro spoke warmly of Mandela, saying he was glad to find him in such good health. The Cuban leader also met Blade Nzimande, the head of the South African Communist Party. Earlier in Durban, where he had been attending the racism summit, Castro spoke at a solidarity rally for Cuba and South Africa's A-N-C (African National Congress) party. Castro last visited South Africa in 1994, when he attended Nelson Mandela's presidential inauguration. This week's visit was be the first major road trip for Castro, 75, since a June 23 fainting spell that sparked concerns about his well-being. Castro and his aides insist his health is good. Communist Cuba began forming links with Africa in the first years after the January 1, 1959, revolutionary triumph that brought Castro to power. As early as 1964, revolutionary Ernesto "Che" Guevara portrayed Cuba as an advocate for black Africa in its struggle against racism and colonialism. Since the collapse of apartheid, Castro has had strong links with the South African government. South African President Thabo Mbeki joined Castro during an official visit in Havana in March for the unveiling of a bust of the late anti-apartheid leader Oliver Tambo.

Air Force Reserve Major General Edward Mechenbier shaking hands with one officer and walking past the plane 21. Airplane shutting down the rear 22. Pilots preparing for takeoff 23. "Hanoi taxi" running on the runway and taking off STORYLINE: Piloting the same plane that rescued him 31 years ago, a former American prisoner of war returned to Vietnam on Friday on his last military mission to bring home remains thought to be fallen comrades. Air Force Reserve Major General Edward Mechenbier stood in his flight uniform saluting two aluminium cases draped in American flags as they were carried onto the Air Force C-141 - dubbed the "Hanoi Taxi" after it carried freed prisoners home on February 12, 1973. Mechenbier, 61, from Ohio, spent nearly six years locked in Hoa Lo prison, nicknamed the "Hanoi Hilton," after his fighter jet was shot down over North Vietnam in June 1967 during his 80th mission. He said he never dreamed of returning to Vietnam, but two other pilots from his home base came up with the idea for him to fly the Hanoi Taxi on his last mission before retiring with more than 3,500 hours in the sky. Mechenbier is the last Vietnam-era POW in the U.S. Military, and the oldest pilot still flying. The plane got its nickname after the prisoners signed their names inside during their historic flight known as Operation Homecoming. Lining the interior are decades-old pictures of the POWs and their homecoming in the United States. Emblazoned on the outside are the words "Return With Honor." It has remained in constant service and was given a makeover two years ago, repainted white on top and gray on the bottom just as it was when Mechenbier first saw it. Mechenbier said he harbours no ill feelings toward Vietnam, adding that he adopted a daughter from here in 1975. He hopes to come back to visit Hanoi, and even return to the former prison, which has become a major tourist draw. He will deliver the two sets of remains to a U.S. military laboratory in Hawaii for identification. The remains were discovered in central Vietnam by a U.S. military recovery team that searches for soldiers still unaccounted for. About 1,800 servicemen remain missing from the Vietnam War, which ended in 1975.

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.

UK: MICHAEL JACKSON IN SURPRISE VISIT WITH AL FAYED
 
02:50
Natural Sound Thousands of shoppers at one of Britain's best-known stores were treated to a huge surprise on Saturday when superstar Michael Jackson arrived to look around. Crowds of curious onlookers amassed outside the front entrance of London's Harrods, caught a glimpse of the pop legend, when he arrived with Harrod's owner, Mohammed Al-Fayed. The pair then went to Al-Fayed's football team, Fulham, to watch Saturday afternoon's match. There were gasps as none other than Michael Jackson stepped out of the green vehicle to be escorted into the store by friend and store owner, Mohammed Al Fayed. The king of pop and Mr Al Fayed had flown into London's Stansted Airport together on a private plane from New York in the early hours of the morning. Jackson arrived for his store tour dressed from head to toe in a black embroidered suit, black boots and shoulder-length black hair, the only flash of colour the distinctive red and black armband on his right arm. Appearing shy behind mirrored sunglasses, he nevertheless smiled broadly as he toured the ground floor with Mr Al Fayed. Surrounded by a phalanx of security guards, the pair then made their way to the Egyptian escalator to visit the memorial to Dodi Fayed and Diana, Princess of Wales, situated in the store's basement. Jackson said little during the visit but when the ever-growing tour party paused in the perfume department to listen to Rhian William playing a large gold harp, he walked over and personally requested she play Greensleeves. Scenes in the store began to resemble the Pied Piper story as hundreds of fans formed a line snaking through the departments and Jackson occasionally waved as screams of "Michael, Michael" accompanied him wherever he went. The tour party moved quickly up to other floors, spending a lot of time in the children's department on the fourth floor. After both men had been embraced by one of the store's larger than life teddy bears, they made their way upstairs to the chairman's suite, where they prepared to leave for another pressing engagement. Thousands of fans of Fulham Football Club, owned by Al-Fayed, gathered at the West London ground unaware that the most famous man in pop was about to join their ranks for Saturday afternoon's game against Wigan. A brief walk around the pitch with Jackson wearing a Fulham supporters scarf, and then he and Al-Fayed settled down to watch the match. Fulham beat Wigan 2-nil - an extra cause for celebration for Fulham supporters.

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. One reason for my decision is that all too many people advised me not to do it, like many other novelists I tend to do the exact opposite of what I am told, yeah..." (crowd clapping) 13. Cutaway wide of Murakami at the podium 14. SOUNDBITE (English) Haruki Murakami, Novelist and winner of 2009 Jerusalem prize: "I choose to come here rather than stay away. I chose to see for myself rather than not to see. I chose to speak to you rather than to say nothing. So please do allow me to deliver a message, one very personal message. 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. It goes something like this - between high solid wall and an egg (that) breaks against it I will always stand on the side of the egg. No matter how right the wall may be, how wrong the egg I will be standing with the egg." 15. Pan from Murakami at podium to crowd cheering 16. Murakami surrounded by fans and signing autographs 17. Close-up of autograph with pull out to show two fans holding up a Murakami novel 18. Murakami leaving, surrounded by cameramen and fans STORYLINE Japanese novelist Haruki Murakami was in Jerusalem on Sunday, to receive a prestigious award, despite threats by readers in his native Japan that they would boycott his books should he visit Israel. 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.

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: (English) Arnold Schwarzenegger, California Governor-Elect: "I've heard your voices loud and clear. We have... tough choices ahead. The first choice that we must make is the one that will determine our success. Shall we rebuild our state together or shall we we fight amongst ourselves creating deeper division and fail the people of California. Well let me tell you something, the answer is clear. 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.

And I think he can do that." 11. SOUNDBITE: (English) Vox pop, Schwarzenegger supporter: "I think California is really fed up. They've been fed up with this whole system. And what you mentioned before about no political experience, maybe that's what we need is something fresh and something new." 12. Schwarzenegger waving STORYLINE: Republican Arnold Schwarzenegger celebrated victory in the race to become California governor with hundreds of cheering supporters, including members of America's most prominent Democratic family on Tuesday. 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.

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.

USA: PAKISTAN'S BENAZIR BHUTTO MEETS PRESIDENT BILL CLINTON
 
02:08
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.

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

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.

UK: JAPANESE EMPEROR AKIHITO & EMPRESS MICHIKO VISIT
 
03:17
Japanese/English Former prisoners of war in Britain will on Thursday take their protest to the gates of Downing Street and deliver a letter to the prime minister before a visit by Emperor Akihito. It will be their fourth protest in three days as they continue to haunt the emperor during his visit. On Wednesday, Emperor Akihito managed to keep his composure as he was dogged by protesters during his visit to Wales. Former POWs also turned up later in the day as the emperor and his wife attended a white-tie dinner in London's financial district hosted by the Lord Mayor of London. The shouts of about 30 former civilian prisoners could be heard over the bagpipers welcoming the Emperor and Empress to London's Guildhall on Wednesday night. But once again, Emperor Akihito took the demonstrators in stride, continuing with his official duties, including inspecting the honour guard stationed outside Guildhall. It was the second day of protests over Akihito's state visit to the U-K, a visit which was at the invitation of Queen Elizabeth II. His trip has angered former prisoners of war in Britain, who are demanding a formal apology for Japan's treatment of them in the Second World War. But the host of the Guildhall banquet - London's Lord Mayor, Alderman Richard Nichols - assured his Japanese guests that they were very welcome. He added that Britain and Japan both wished to see a stable climate for investment. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Our countries have common interests and aspirations and we both wish to see a stable and prosperous world where investment in free trade and industrial services and products thrive." SUPER CAPTION: London's Lord Mayor, Alderman Richard Nichols At a Buckingham Palace banquet on Tuesday, Akihito had alluded to the protests, saying he and the empress could never forget the suffering of so many people during the war. During his speech at Guildhall 24 hours later, he said he hoped his visit would bring Britain and Japan closer together. SOUNDBITE: (Japanese) "The relationship between the two countries has developed into something important, not just in the economy or finance, but both countries can make contributions to each other. It is a development that I could not have expected during my first visit." SUPER CAPTION: Emperor Akihito Japan's Kyodo News Agency has quoted Prime Minister Ryutaro Hashimoto as saying that the emperor has done his best to express his own thoughts frankly without getting involved in politics. Hashimoto reportedly added that he hoped the Emperor's feelings would be accepted by the British people. But that hasn't been the case. Earlier on Wednesday, dozens of former prisoners-of-war turned their backs on Akihito as he arrived in Wales, the main centre of Japan's massive investment in Britain. The POWs have vowed to protest for the duration of the Emperor's stay in Britain. Later on Thursday, they will take their protest to 10, Downing Street where they will hand a letter to Prime Minister Tony Blair. The protesters have rejected his attempts at reconciliation. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Tony Blair said yesterday give him a warm welcome. I think he must be out of his tiny mind." SUPER CAPTION: Former P-O-W The emperor is due to attend a reception and lunch hosted by the prime minister at Downing Street on Thursday. The POWs have promised they'll be there to continue their campaign for an apology from Akihito and compensation from the Japanese government.

President introduces new dog

Laura Bush holding puppy, putting her down on grass 3. Miss Beazley and Barney run around on White House lawn 4. Various shots of President and Laura Bush watching the dogs STORYLINE The White House in Washington DC got a new resident on Thursday with the arrival of Miss Beazley, the First Lady's Scottish terrier puppy. President George W. Bush and the First Lady showed the puppy off to TV cameras on the White House's South Lawn. Bush gave the dog to his wife for her 58th birthday in November, but the 10-week-old puppy had to wait until it was old enough to move into the White House. Miss Beazley is related to the other White Hose dog, Barney: Barney's half brother is Miss Beazley's father. Barney gave his younger companion a few good sniffs at the official presentation, but they mostly roamed the grass and ignored each other - and first lady's calls for them to come. The president jokingly said of the new dog that he "behaves like Barney", who often ignores commands from the president to come and has to be chased down and carried. The Bush's other long-time pet, an English springer spaniel named Spot, died last year.
