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.

Japan - New discoveries in paper folding
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."

SOUNDBITE: (Urdu) Imran Khan, Pakistani opposition leader: "On this occasion I suggest all political parties should boycott the upcoming elections, especially those parties that believe in democracy in Pakistan. These elections are going to be the biggest fraud in the history of Pakistan. Musharraf has done what no dictator in the history of Pakistan has ever done. He has crossed all limits." 3. Pan right of journalist 4. SOUNDBITE: (Urdu) Imran Khan, Pakistani opposition leader: "I don't know why they released me. If they think they have managed to scare me by arresting me, they are wrong. I will oppose him more strongly this time. I do not accept Musharraf's office or his position. I think he is the biggest traitor." 5. Pan left of party supporters 6. Khan leaving STORYLINE: A day after being released from prison Imran Khan, one of Pakistan's opposition figures, urged all political parties to boycott any elections organised by President Gen. Perves Musharraf in a bid to oust him from power. "I suggest all political parties should boycott the upcoming elections, especially those parties that believe in democracy in Pakistan. These elections are going to be the biggest fraud in the history of Pakistan," Khan said. Musharraf has said he expects to step down as military leader by the end of the month, and insists elections scheduled for January will be held on time. But he says he will not bow to international pressure to lift the state of emergency imposed three weeks ago in response to what he said was a growing threat from Islamic militants. On Wednesday Law Minister Afzal Hayder announced on state television that the government had released 5,634 lawyers and political party members. He said 623 people remained in custody, but that they would be let go soon. "I don't know why they released me. If they think they have managed to scare me by arresting me, they are wrong," he said. "I will oppose him more strongly this time. I do not accept Musharraf's office or his position. I think he is the biggest traitor," he added. Khan, a former cricket star who has become a firebrand in the opposition to Musharraf's rule, also said he would continue a hunger strike begun in custody.

President Bush reacts to Obama's victory in 2008 election
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.

German FM makes impassioned plea for peace
1. Wide shot of audience 2. German Defence Joschka Fischer (clapping earlier to Rumsfeld's speech) 3. SOUNDBITE: (German) German Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer: "We haven't even finished the first job, we by far haven't finished the job of fighting terrorism and the al Qaeda network. Who of you pretends to know that we will not get a blow which is not from Saddam Hussein but from the unfinished terrorism network? That's why I ask this critical question: why these priorities? Why do this now?" 4. Close up of US Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld 5. SOUNDBITE: (German/ English) German Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer: "We owe the Americans our democracy. They are very important for stability and peace especially. We Germans would never have been able to free ourselves from the Nazi regime without America. The Americans allowed us to build up our democracy but in this democracy my generation has learnt... (switches to English) You have to make the case, and to make the case in a democracy you have to be convinced yourself, and excuse me I am not convinced, this is my problem and I cannot go to the public and say, well let's go to war because there are reasons and so on, and I don't believe in that." 6. Mid shot of Fischer at podium looking towards Rumsfeld in audience 7. Wide shot of delegates at security conference STORYLINE: German Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer made an impassioned plea for patience with Iraq on Saturday and said the German public sees no justification for going to war. Fischer responded to an earlier pro-war speech by Rumsfeld, stating that diplomatic efforts to secure Iraq's disarmament had not been exhausted and it was premature to start military moves. The Iraq crisis and the divisions it has caused among traditional allies dominated the annual conference in Munich where dozens of ministers and military and defence experts from Europe, North America and Asia have gathered. Fischer told the conference that Germany would not support a "military build up" ahead of the next UN Security Council session on February when chief weapons inspector Hans Blix is due to present a new report. Fischer also said that Germany would respect its commitments to Turkey under the NATO treaty. NATO has to decide by Monday whether to order its military experts to plan for the deployment of early warning planes, missile defence batteries and specialized units to Turkey. France, Germany and Belgium have held up the NATO planning for three weeks, arguing that it could undermine UN efforts to avert a war. Anxious alliance officials fear continued refusal could do permanent damage to NATO.

Unseen belongings of legend Marilyn Monroe unveiled ++REPLAY++
(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.

Former terrorism advisor Richard Clarke testifies on 9/11
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.

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.

Italy: Rome: Funeral Of Actor Marcello Mastroianni - 1996
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.

SOUNDBITE: (Xhosa) Nelson Mandela, Former South African President: "Because I am still alive today so that I can be able to rest in peace because my grandson has taken chieftaincy and rules here at Mvezo. 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.

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.

1. Wide shot interior TUC Congress 2. Two shot Tony Blair and Bill Morris (leader of Transport and General Workers' Union) as Morris introduces Blair (UPSOUND: (English) "In the light of that information I now invite the Prime Minister to make a statement to the Congress." 3. Blair goes up to speak 4. SOUNDBITE: (English) Tony Blair, British Prime Minister "As Bill has just informed you there have been the most terrible shocking events taking place in the United States of America within the last hour or so including two hijacked planes being flown deliberately into the World Trade Centre. I'm afraid we can only imagine the terror and the carnage there and the many many innocent people that will have lost their lives. I know you will want to join with me in sending the deepest condolences to President Bush and to the American people on behalf of the British people at these terrible events. This mass terrorism is the new evil in our world today. It is perpetrated by fanatics who are utterly indifferent to the sanctity of human life, and we the democracies of this world are going to have to come together to fight it together and eradicate this evil from our world. Delegates, I hope you will understand that I don't believe it would be appropriate to carry on the speech I was going to give you today. I know I have issued copies of the speech, we will make sure that all delegates get copies of the speech, but I think it inappropriate to give that speech here now. I will obviously want to carry on discussions that we've had about the issues that concern us. I will now return to London and once again I thank you for your indulgence here. I'm very very sorry it has turned out the way it has but I know that, as I say, you would want to join with me in offering our deepest sympathy to the American people and our absolute shock and outrage at what has happened." 5. Blair returns to his seat to applause STORYLINE: British Prime Minister Tony Blair has reacted with shock and outrage to the news on Tuesday of attacks on the World Trade Centre in New York and the Pentagon in Washington. Blair was speaking at the TUC Congress in Brighton where he had been due to address delegates about his plans for public services. But he said in the circumstances it would be inappropriate and instead he was returning to London immediately. Blair sent deepest condolences to President Bush and to the American people on behalf of the British people. And he condemned the new evil of mass terrorism, calling upon world democracies to unite and eradicate it from the world. Two planes crashed into the upper floors of both World Trade Centre towers minutes apart on Tuesday morning in what the President George W. Bush said was an apparent terrorist attack, blasting fiery, gaping holes in the 110-storey buildings. Within the hour, an aircraft crashed on a helicopter landing pad near the Pentagon, and the West Wing of the White House was evacuated amid threats of terrorism.

(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.

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.

Pakistan - Jemima Khan interview - 1997
Imran Khan's wife, Jemima, has criticised his political opponents for mudslinging, saying "all sorts of nonsense is written in the newspapers". SHOWS: ISLAMABDAD, PAKISTAN 23 & 24 JANUARY, 1997 24/1 Exterior shot of Nasim Rahman Tuzain's house, where interview took place Jemima answering question about difficulties facing herself and her husband as a result of his being a politician: "Well sacrifices have to be made in this job. Imran got to see his child for a two days after it was born, and then not again until he was six weeks old. But I hope those sacrifices will be worth it. As for the mudslinging, I think you have that in politics all over the world. the only problem in Pakistan is that there's no accountability so it's very difficult to defend oneself. it's difficult to take to court for libel, for example. So all sorts of nonsense is written in the newspapers, and unlike in other countries where there's a better system of justice, you are unable to counteract those. You know, it's difficult, you can't fight back." Cutaway of statue and clock in same room Jemima answering question as to whether she wants Imran to continue in politics if his party does not win in the election; Jemima SOT: "Absolutely, I feel very strongly, actually. There's been such short notice with these elections. Frankly, as far as I'm concerned anyway, it's a miracle that they've managed to put together a party in what is it? Three months? They've had to field candidates and if they get one seat even, it's a miracle, even one seat. Having said that, I hope they will be very successful, but if they're not, then the next time, Inshallah (God willing); and in any case, it's not so much a political party as such, it's a movement. Even if they're not in power, they're still striving to fight against the system and provide some sort of buffer against the corruption and to provide some kind of justice for people. It started off as a movement, so his job is not over even if they don't have total success in these elections." Cutaway of statue above clock Jemima answering question about the main issues in the election. SOT Jemima: "I think that thanks to Therik Insaf the main issue has been corruption, actually. I think that's what we've seen. I think they've raised the issue, and then it's been taken up as a slogan by all the other parties. Now corruption is the key word. But there's also other issues, I mean. The poor people here. My sister-in-laws and I have been meeting with people, doing the door-to-door canvassing, and the real issue for them is they can't buy athar, is athar flour? They can't buy athar, they haven't the means for sustenance for their children, for themselves, so it is all linked to corruption, but for them it is much more directly that they can't even afford to feed themselves." 23/1: Jemima arriving to address women's convention; women clapping; Jemima walking through crowd of women; woman embracing Jemima; Jemima sitting at women's convention arranging her head veil; WS of other women attending the convention; Jemima addressing the convention in Urdu 24/1 Jemima answering questions about allegations against Imran claiming that he is being funded by Jemima's millionaire father. SOT Jemima: "It's totally untrue and it's totally unfair. Imran's a very proud man and he would never accept one penny from my father, whether it be for his personal use or for his party, or for any other use for that matter. He's a very very proud man, and I can honestly say that he's never accepted even a penny since I got married to him, and nor would my father offer because he recognizes that Imran is a dignified man and would not want to offer him his financial support." baby; car drives off You can license this story through AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/metadata/youtube/946b11e6a3c9a2a90034c9b0afe70aad Find out more about AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/HowWeWork

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.

Lebanon - Girl sheds tears of glass
T/I: 10:44:35 A family in Lebanon believes that their daughter has experienced a miracle from God. She sheds up to ten pieces of glass daily from her eye without causing any damage. Hasnaa Muslumani, a twelve year old girl who lives in Fakha, says the unusual phenomenon started on March 28th this year when she woke up one morning feeling pain in her eye and something come out. Her mother took her to hospital and Dr Ahmed Araji reportedly managed to take out three big pieces of glass from her eye. Since her return home, Hasnaa has reportedly shed around 7-8 pieces of glass daily without any apparent harm being done to the eye. While her parents claim it is a miracle from God, Dr Araji has a different explanation. He says the girl's father broke a glass near his daughters face a few months ago and believes that this incident may be responsible.

Various of people eating in the mess STORYLINE: It's always said that an army marches on its stomach and, of course, that's also how the navy sails. On the huge aircraft carrier the U-S-S Carl Vinson, feeding 5-thousand sailors is a daily challenge. The challenge for the catering crew is to provide plenty of quantity and variety, even if the ship is at sea for weeks on end. The USS Carl Vinson, which is launching bombing raids on Afghanistan from the northern Arabian Sea, has seven galleys ranging from the exclusive admiral's mess to the two huge eating areas for the enlisted men and women. You name it, they've probably got it: from machines dispensing root beer and pink lemonade all the way to an expensive cappuccino maker. The 140 cooks on board will fry up a hamburger, veggie burger or a grilled cheese sandwich. Then there are taco bars, salad bars, a pasta bar, bagels, and hot dogs. Many items are available round the clock. The crew gets four meals a day: breakfast, lunch, dinner and a late-night offering called "mid rats." That's short for 'midnight rations' and has nothing to do with the ingredients. The immense freezer can hold 120 truckloads of food. Its supplies include boxes of lobster tail and steak for a special dinner to celebrate the Navy's birthday, 226 years ago. The specialist mess chef, Moises, whose full name cannot be used under military ground rules, says all but a few seem happy with the results.

(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.

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

A: I think it's 32 inches but you'd have to look it up on the internet. Q: Is this summer especially dry? A: No. We got a half inch. August is always dry, unless there is a hurricane, August is a dry month in Texas. And it's always hot. It's never not been hot and Dallas, I don't know Jackson, are you living in Dallas?

Offers media lift in his truck STORYLINE: President George W Bush has opened the doors to his Texas ranch for journalists to take a peek inside. The Russian President, Vladimir Putin, will stay as a guest at the ranch when he arrives in the US for his first US-Russian summit on American soil in November. The pair have now met three times abroad. The ranch is surrounded by wild countryside, including canyons which cross his property. President Bush pointed out his enjoyment of watching the wildlife, including foxes and all species of birds. He said it was the perfect environment to think about political and economic problems. President Bush and his wife Laura bought the ranch in 1999, while he was governor of Texas. He has carried out many renovations to make a modern home. The President said he was looking forward to showing Mr Putin around. He said he wanted to show him the canyons especially, and was pleased he would be coming in the Autumn just as the colours turn. He said Mr Putin was fond of exercise and he imagined he would like to go on some good long hikes. He said he hadn't decided yet whether Mr Putin would stay with him at the main house, or in the old ranch homestead which has now been transformed into a guest house. He also envisaged a slight problem in accommodating all the members of both entourages, given there was no hotel within 30 kilometres.

Following cremation at nearby Slough Crematorium, Margaret's ashes were to be placed in the Royal Vault at Saint George's Chapel.

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

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

Woman with plastic blue gloves unwraps sword 8. Medium shot of sword, pans up to men in kilts 9. SOUNDBITE (English) Colin O'Brien, Provost (Mayor), Town of Sterling: "Well it is important because it is the 700th anniversary and Wallace was executed by the English king in 1305 because of what they saw as treason against the English crown, but that also laid the foundation for the development of the modern Scottish state, which followed from that. " 10. Pan of sword from tip of blade to handle 11. Overhead close up of sword handle 12. Overhead pan from tip of blade to handle 13. Men in kilts and tilt down to sword STORYLINE: For the first time in more than 700 years, an ancient sword wielded by Scottish rebel leader William Wallace left its homeland to be on display during Tartan Day celebrations in New York City, which begin later this week. The local governing council of Stirling, Scotland, gave permission earlier this month for the 1.52 metre (5-foot) blade to travel across the Atlantic. Packed inside a specially made security case, the forged steel sword left Scotland's Glasgow Airport on Wednesday morning. This year marks the 700th anniversary of the execution of Wallace, who led the Scots in their battle to free themselves from English rule. The sword will be the centrepiece of an exhibition at the New York train station, Grand Central Terminal. The weapon, which weighs 2.72 kilos (6 pounds), will be returned to its home at Stirling's National Wallace Monument after the celebrations. Wallace died 700 years ago this August. His sword was kept at Dumbarton Castle for 600 years and in 1505 King James IV is said to have paid for it to be given a new hilt. It was later moved to the Wallace Monument, overlooking the site of the hero's victory at the Battle of Stirling Bridge in 1297. Wallace's story was brought to the screen by Mel Gibson in the 1995 Academy Award-winning film "Braveheart."

(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.

Russia - Rural life in Russia
T/I: 10:39:48 While Moscow and the rest of the world were riveted by the recent struggle for power in the Kremlin, the rest of Russia went about its daily routine, largely oblivous to the capital's intrigue. In the village of Boyarki, nearly 100km to the east of Moscow mostly they worry about where they will get their next meal. With the collapse of the collective farm system, the populations of villages have had to return to a medieval system of self-supply, or hunting and gathering.

SOUNDBITE: (English) Bobby Fischer, former chess champion: "I still want to do a book showing how the 1984-85 Kasparov and Karpov match was prearranged, move by move, the dirty Jews they say "Oh Fischer didn't write the book he said he was going to write." Yes, but they don't say they stole all my files on it. They don't say they stole several big moving boxes full of books that took me years to accumulate. They stole them from Beakins Moving and Storage and they also stole them from my mother's house when she passed away." 7. Cutaway 8. SOUNDBITE: (English) Bobby Fischer, former chess champion: "The United States is evil. The United States is you know, (they talk about) the axis of evil. Well what about the allies of evil - what about the United States, England, Japan, Australia? And so on. These are the evil-doers." 9. Various news conference and questions from the media 10.

Some are not happy because of some comments he's made but I think most people are probably happy." 14. Various of chess tournament STORYLINE: Chess champion Bobby Fischer met the press in Iceland on Friday, his hair and beard neatly trimmed but his opinions still bristling on his first full day of freedom. Fischer announced that he was finished with a chess world he regarded as corrupt. He also said he was happy to be in Iceland, which granted him citizenship to pave the way for his release from detention in Japan, where he was held on a US extradition warrant. Fischer is a popular figure in Iceland, the site of his most famous match - the 1972 world championship victory over Boris Spassky that became a symbol of Cold War rivalry. Chess players in Iceland said they were thankful for the role he had played in promoting in the country. In a rambling news conference at his hotel, the combative Fischer sparred with US journalists who asked about his anti-American tirades. Fischer was freed on Thursday after nine months' detention in Japan, where he had been held by authorities for trying to leave the country using an invalid U.S. passport. Japan agreed to release him after he accepted Iceland's offer of citizenship. His fiancee, Miyoko Watai, the head of Japan's chess association, accompanied him to Iceland. Fischer railed against the governments of Japan and the United States, and other Coalition allies on Friday. "The United States is evil. The United States is you know, (they talk about) the axis of evil. Well what about the allies of evil - what about the United States, England, Japan, Australia? And so on. These are the evil-doers," the former champion said. Fischer, whose mother was Jewish but who has a history of anti-Semitic outbursts, accused "the Jew-controlled US government" of ruining his life. Fischer, 62, is wanted by the United States for violating sanctions imposed on the former Yugoslavia by playing an exhibition match against Russian Boris Spassky there in 1992. He had fought deportation since being detained by Japanese officials last July, and at one point said he wanted to become a German citizen.

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.

Johannes driving car down road in village SUGGESTED LEAD-IN: South Africa has come a long way since the end of apartheid just over a decade ago. But modern technology and higher education remain out of the reach of many black South Africans. It's a country where resourcefulness mixed with a little technical know-how goes a long way. The townships of post-apartheid South Africa are producing a generation of innovators with dreams of a better life. In Makapanstad, north of Pretoria, one young man has built his own car - out of scrap. VOICE-OVER: A dusty road runs through the village of Makapanstad, 150 kilometres north of South Africa's administrative capital, Pretoria. Here, incomes are low, unemployment high and university education out of reach for most people. But that did not stop Johannes Monene from turning his dream into reality. The 22-year-old wanted to build his own car and now he has - out of junk. Johannes began collecting scrap metal around his village two years ago, determined to build his car. The doubters advised him to stop wasting his time. Today Monene drives around his village in a bright blue handmade car he calls his MMW Z2 -- and everyone wants a ride. SOUNDBITE (English) "This car took me two years, almost two years and I had to struggle to make this car because I did not have materials in the first place. I had to look for materials down there around my village, I had to face people to find materials, I had to beg them. And because they are saints they did give me some materials. Some I had to buy with my money and then this is what I did at the end." The car has been modelled on Johannes favourite vehicle, the BMW - which stands for Bavaria Motor Works. Monene jokes that his car comes from the Makapanstad Motor Works - MMW. It has a 1400cc Nissan engine... ...customised indicator lights.... ...and manual gear shift. Johannes even worked out how to install electric windows. A unique feature is the waving hand he has wired in to the back window. It's a wonderful example of ingenuity and determination. Johannes hasn't got the right qualifications for his next dream... the former maths and science student could not afford to go to university. But he hopes to one day work as a mechanic for BMW. In the meantime he is planning to put a roof on his car and continues to search the scrapyards near his village for accessories to add to his beloved MMW.

Pope Benedict arrives at Elysee Palace
SHOTLIST 1. Top view of presidential Elysee Palace, journalists rushing into position 2. Cutaway military band 3. Top view of Elysee Palace 4. French President Nicolas Sarkozy waiting 5. Various of Pope Benedict XVI arriving in car 6. Pope being greeted by Sarkozy 7. Top view of Elysee Palace 8. Benedict and Sarkozy walking to go inside, pose for cameras 9. Pope greeting officials inside walks upstairs with Sarkozy STORYLINE Pope Benedict XVI on Friday arrived at the presidential Elysee Palace in Paris for a reception hosted by the French president and his wife. Nicolas Sarkozy and Carla Bruni-Sarkozy earlier greeted the pontiff when he landed at Orly airport just after 11:00 a.m. (0900 GMT). On the plane, Benedict expressed understanding for France's long tradition of separating church and state, but added that, nonetheless, that religion and politics should be open to each other. Sarkozy was to host Benedict for talks at the Elysee Palace Friday. The president's office said Sarkozy planned to discuss his idea of "positive secularism" - upholding the separation of church and state, while considering religions as beneficial for society, not a danger- during talks at the Elysee Palace. Afterwards, Benedict will meet members of the Jewish community before leading a ceremony at Notre Dame cathedral. He also plans to address Muslim leaders. France is home to a growing number of Muslims whose visible customs, such as wearing headscarves in public schools, have raised the hackles of officials determined to preserve the boundaries between church and state. France, a fiercely secular country that is traditionally Roman Catholic, has Western Europe's largest population of both Jews and Muslims. French authorities will mobilise 9,200 police and other security officers for the Pope's visit, the Interior Ministry said on Wednesday. A Saturday morning Mass in central Paris is expected to draw between 150,000 and 200,000 people, the Interior Ministry has said. Later on Saturday, the pontiff will visit the Roman Catholic shrine of Lourdes in the south of France near the Pyrenees while the sanctuary celebrates the 150th anniversary of apparitions of the Virgin Mary to a local 14-year-old, Bernadette Soubirous. The shrine draws 6 million people annually, some of them disabled or desperately sick, many of them hoping for a miracle. Lourdes was the last trip abroad for Benedict's predecessor, John Paul II. When John Paul visited in 2004, he was 84 and suffering the final ravages of Parkinson's disease. He needed to be helped by aides. He died in 2005.

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

Natural Sound Pope John Paul II has landed in Cairo on the first ever trip by a Roman Catholic pontiff to Egypt. The trip has taken on a dual function. It's a highly personal pilgrimage for the elderly pontiff - and also an opportunity to promote closer dialogue between Muslims and Orthodox Christians. The Pope, dressed in white robes embroidered in gold, emerged from his plane and slowly made his way down red-carpeted stairs to the tarmac at Cairo's international airport. Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak greeted him with a handshake at the foot of the stairs. The papal reception party included Muslim and Christian religious leaders from across the region. Crowds of ordinary Egyptians also gathered at the edge of the airport, waving welcome banners. A band played the processional from Verdi's "Aida," - an opera associated with Egypt. Mubarak escorted the Pope, leaning on a walking stick, to the waving flags of Egypt and the Vatican. Four small children brought the pope a tray of Egyptian soil, which he kissed. John Paul, making his first visit to Egypt and the 90th foreign trip of his 22-year papacy, insists his agenda is "purely religious, not political." But all gestures by the 79-year-old pontiff have the potential to reverberate through the volatile mix of beliefs across the Middle East.

Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry arrive at velodrome
(2 Aug 2012) STORYLINE: Cycling fans arrived at the Olympic velodrome on Thursday for the track cycling events - with Britons having high hopes for their country's competitors. Members of the British royal family were there, too, including Prince William, the Duchess of Cambridge, and Prince Harry. Inside the velodrome, the women's team sprint world record fell three times in rapid succession - with home favourites Victoria Pendleton and Jessica Varnish clocking 32.526 seconds over the two laps of the velodrome during qualifying to improve on the previous mark of 32.549 set by Germany in April. But British fans were quickly silenced by the Chinese pairing of Gong Jinjie and Guo Shuang, who went on to beat the record twice. And, in a huge upset for the home fans, Pendleton and Varnish saw their medal hopes vanish when they were later relegated for making an early change in the first round. More controversy erupted in the final when China won, but were then eliminated themselves, giving gold to Germany, which had already seen defeat turn to victory against Britain. But British fans had something to cheer when Chris Hoy has won a fifth Olympic gold medal with victory in the men's team sprint alongside Philip Hindes and Jason Kenny in a world record time of 42.6 seconds.
