ITALY: MILAN: MEMORIAL SERVICE TO GIANNI VERSACE
 
02:02
Natural Sound As relatives and stars comforted each other Elton John and String paid tribute to the slain designer Gianni Versace, singing the hymn "The Lord is my Shepherd. Princess Diana and Naomi Campbell watched as the priest conducted the memorial service in Milan's Cathedral on Tuesday. Versace's sister Donatella and brother Santo, who have vowed to carry on Gianni's empire, were overcome by grief as the cathedral filled with song. Versace's murder on the steps of his Miami mansion last Tuesday sent shockwaves through the fashion world. Those who mourned his death were still struck with disbelief. As the star-studded congregation descended the cathedral, a sombre mood hung over the city of Milan and the watching fashion world.

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.

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.

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

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

WRAP Prince William and Kate Middleton announce engagement ADDS more
 
05:23
(16 Nov 2010) Prince William has finally became engaged to long-time girlfriend Kate Middleton, giving her his late mother's engagement ring and Britain the prospect of its biggest royal wedding since Prince Charles married Lady Diana Spencer almost 30 years ago. Royal officials announced on Tuesday that William will marry Middleton next spring or summer in London, ending years of rumoured splits, reconciliations and will-they, won't-they speculation. The college romance that seemed to wilt under the pressure of adulthood and the glare of the paparazzi had blossomed at last. "This was my way of making sure that my mother didn't miss out on today," William said as the couple posed for photographers inside St. James's Palace. William proposed during a holiday in Kenya last month and gave Kate the oval blue sapphire surrounded by diamonds, from the jeweller Garrard, that his mother, Princess Diana, once wore. William is second in line to the British throne after Charles, his father. Kate and William's first child would move ahead of his younger brother Prince Harry to become third in line to the throne. "Blimey," said William as he faced a torrent of camera flashes Tuesday at St. James's Palace. He wore a navy suit, Kate a simple blue dress. Kate acknowledged that being queen was "a daunting prospect" and declined to say whether the prince had gone down on bended knee when he proposed. Many in Britain welcomed the royal engagement as a rare piece of good news in a time of economic uncertainty and cutbacks - a time much like 1981, when millions watched Charles and Diana's fairy-tale wedding. Their marriage eventually ended in divorce - but no one was dwelling on that detail on Tuesday. William's grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, and her husband Prince Philip "are absolutely delighted for them both," Buckingham Palace said. Prince Charles said he was "obviously thrilled," and his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, said her stepson's engagement was "the most brilliant news." Middleton's parents, Carole and Michael, also welcomed the prince to their family. "We all think he's wonderful, we're extremely fond of him," Michael Middleton said. "They make a lovely couple." Using Twitter as well as a news release, Clarence House said Charles was "delighted to announce the engagement of Prince William to Miss Catherine Middleton." Few were surprised by the news. Kate and William's engagement was the safest bet in Britain, an event so certain that bookies had stopped taking bets on a 2011 wedding. The date avoids London's Summer Olympics and the queen's Diamond Jubilee, both being held in 2012. No venue has been announced yet. For true pomp, the ceremony is likely to fall between the extraordinary spectacle of Charles and Diana's wedding in St. Paul's Cathedral and Charles' subdued second marriage to Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall at Windsor Guildhall in 2005. The formal engagement is likely to turn the poised, brunette Middleton - already depicted approvingly in the fashion pages - into a global icon. With her confident good looks and long brown hair, Middleton has already become one of the most photographed women in Britain. The palace will be hoping that she combines Diana's glamour and charm with a more commonsense approach to life. At 28, Middleton is considerably older than Diana was when she wed at 20, and has had greater life experiences and longer training in dealing with the media. William and Harry have spent a lifetime in the spotlight, with their drunken nights out and female friends the subject of constant tabloid gossip. William once told an interviewer he wouldn't marry "until I'm at least 28 or maybe 30." He turned 28 in June, Middleton met William at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland.

CUBA: RUSSIAN PRESIDENT PUTIN VISIT
 
02:28
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.

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.

Shuttle astronaut collapses during welcome home ceremony

She is supported, then lowered to floor by fellow crew members. 2. Cutaways of audience, pull back to wide - applauding 3. SOUNDUP: (English) Heidemarie Stefanyshyn-Piper, Astronaut: "Boy if that's not a little embarrassing." 4. Cutaway of Atlantis crew patch 5. Astronaut Heidemarie Stefanyshyn-Piper speaking, collapses again and is lowered to the ground File: Lyndon B Johnson Space Centre, Houston, Texas - Unknown Date 6. Various of Heidemarie Stefanyshyn-Piper training 7. Various of Atlantis crew posing for pictures in front of NASA jets STORYLINE: An astronaut collapsed twice Friday, a day after she returned to Earth in the shuttle Atlantis, and officials attributed her wobbles to the adjustment from 12 days at zero gravity. Heidemarie Stefanyshyn-Piper left the welcome-home ceremony at the hangar at Ellington Field, in Houston, Texas, but was not taken to a hospital. NASA officials and her husband Glenn Piper both said she was doing fine. Piper blamed his wife's collapse on the combination of effects from her recent return, a relatively warm hangar and the excitement of the ceremony. Piper, the fifth of the six astronauts to speak, appeared to be confused before her legs buckled during her address. NASA officials and crew members braced her and lowered her to the ground. She stood up again, and the crowd applauded. "Boy, if that's not a little embarrassing," she said. After speaking for another 30 seconds or so, she again appeared confused and gripped the podium before starting to collapse. Fellow crew members stepped to her side and lowered her to the floor. Two NASA officials then helped her leave through a side door, and she was allowed to return home by early afternoon, according to Smith Johnston, the crew's flight surgeon, who was at Piper's side when she fell. Astronauts typically lose 10 percent to 14 percent of their blood volume while in space, usually regaining it in a day or two, Johnston said. The Atlantis crew returned to Earth on Thursday after performing the first construction work on the International Space Station since the Columbia disaster three-and-a-half years ago. They performed three gruelling spacewalks to hook up a seventeen-and-a-half-ton addition, which included a giant set of electricity-producing solar panels. Piper, 43, of St. Paul, Minnesota, is a US Navy Commander and was a mission specialist and cosmic electrician aboard the shuttle. She carried out two of the spacewalks, joining an elite club of only six other US women and a single Russian woman who have walked in space.

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.

President George H.W. Bush takes the oath of office administered by Chief Justice William Rehnquist
 
02:46

Various photo opportunities of Israeli Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom and Erdogan STORYLINE Guarded by scores of Israeli and Palestinian security officials, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Monday visited the Al Aqsa Mosque, Islam's third-holiest site and one of the most politically sensitive areas in the region. Erdogan, in the region on a two-day visit, is meeting Palestinian leaders on Monday. He held talks with Israeli leaders on Sunday in an effort to repair strained relations with the Jewish state. In a sign of closer ties, Israel and Turkey said they would set up a hot line for instant communications on terror threats. On Monday morning, Erdogan, whose party has its roots in Turkey's Islamic movement, arrived at the disputed site in the Old City known as the Temple Mount to Jews and the Noble Sanctuary to Muslims. The site, which once held the biblical Jewish Temples and now holds Al Aqsa, is claimed by both Jews and Muslims. Erdogan was surrounded by dozens of Israeli security guards when he arrived at the compound. In his trip here, Erdogan, only the second Turkish prime minister to visit Israel, said he hoped to offer himself as a mediator in the conflict between the Palestinians and Israel.

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.

Some of the best times of my life is when I have done something hard, when I have overcome a fear. You don't realise that when you are doing it but when you come out on the other side, you realise wow, I have really stepped up so I push my girls." 4. Wide of Michelle Obama talking 5.

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

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

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.

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

Pan from fire to tent 10. Various of Russian dignitaries leaving STORYLINE Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi hosted Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin in Moscow on Saturday in a dark-green Bedouin tent that was pitched in a Kremlin park. Gadhafi, who last visited Moscow during the Soviet era, arrived on Friday with an entourage of defence and energy officials for three days of talks. Libya was an ally of the Soviet Union, but relations withered after the 1991 Soviet collapse. Gadhafi's visit highlights Russia's efforts to bolster relations again. The Libyan leader said earlier Saturday he hopes to increase energy ties with Moscow. Russia has hoped to persuade Libya to back its plans for a gas cartel that would also involve Algeria, Iran, Qatar and the countries of Central Asia. Such an OPEC-like organisation could strengthen Moscow's energy leverage over Europe. Gadhafi is also expected to clinch a series of major arms deals on his visit. He held talks with Russian President Dmitri Medvedev and Putin earlier Saturday. Gadhafi described the talks as a "continuation of the progress" made by Putin when he visited Tripoli in April. During his visit, Putin, who was then president, agreed to write off 4.5 (b) billion US dollars in Libyan debt in exchange for lucrative deals in energy and arms. In return, Russia's gas monopoly Gazprom signed a deal to develop six prospective oil and gas fields in Libya. In the 1980s, Libya was a major customer for Soviet weapons. But Russia now faces competition from other former Soviet republics for supplying arms to Libya. After leaving Moscow on Sunday, Gadhafi is expected to visit Belarus and Ukraine.

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".

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.

Heated exchange as CEO of investment bank testifies, protest
 
03:00
(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."

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.

Mid-shot of King Goodwill Zwelithini's daughter 17. Mandla Mandela being anointed by local priests and chiefs 18. Close-up of Nelson Mandela nodding STORYLINE: Former South African President Nelson Mandela beamed on Monday as he watched his grandson reclaim a traditional leadership post that Mandela had renounced decades ago to become a lawyer and dedicate his life to fighting apartheid. Mandla Mandela, 32, was draped in a lion skin, the symbol of royalty, and officially installed as head of the Mvezo Traditional Council by the king of the AbaThembu, Zwelibanzi Dalindyebo, one of six kings of the Xhosa people. The ceremony took place in front of hundreds of well wishers, including tribal royalty from across the country, most of them clad in brightly coloured traditional dress and beaded headdresses. It was the first time in nearly 70 years that a member of Mandela's family from the Madiba clan took up the mantle of traditional leadership. Dressed in a black and white animal print shirt, he walked with difficulty up the stairs but otherwise looked in good health and in radiant spirits as he delivered a short speech in Xhosa in a firm voice. "That will make me sleep forever being a happy man in my grave knowing that Mandla has taken this chieftaincy that I was supposed to have taken," said Nelson Mandela. Mandla Mandela's father Makgatho, Nelson Mandela's last surviving son, died in 2005 of AIDS-related complications. His mother, Rayne Mandela-Perry, said her late husband would have been proud to see his son carry on the family legacy. Mandla Mandela, who graduated from Rhodes University's political science program last week, now has the power to decide disputes and try certain criminal and civil cases.

SOUNDBITE: (English) Kofi Annan, Secretary General of United Nations: "I think in a normal democratic process, if you can get unanimity, well and good. But if you can't, and an overwhelming majority of the members go for something, I think it should work. My understanding is that the U.S., even though they may not be able to vote for the Council as it is now currently proposed, will be able to work with the Council, and so I do expect the Council to be established today. I am particularly happy about it because I think it's qualitatively better than the Commission. The President of the General Assembly has done great work working with all the member states to come up with a document that gives us a credible basis to move forward. And I'm sure the US, which has done so much for human rights, will find a way to work with the other member states to make the Council what it ought to be." 6. Mandela and Annan shake hands 7. SOUNDBITE: (English) Nelson Mandela, Former President of South Africa: "Kofi introduced a new approach of respecting everybody whether he is black or white, and trying to serve them. That is the type of Secretary General of the United Nations that we want." Soweto 8. Kofi Annan laying a wreath at the Hector Peterson memorial grave 9. Various of Hector Peterson memorial grave 10. Various of Kofi Annan and wife watching traditional dancers 11. Kofi Annan getting into a car to go 12. School children singing STORYLINE: United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan is sure a UN human rights council would be able to work with the United States, even if the US was to vote against it being established, he said on Wednesday. Annan spoke after meeting former South African president Nelson Mandela at the Nelson Mandela Foundation in Johannesburg. Annan said he was optimistic that member states would approve the creation of a new UN Human Rights Council despite vows by the United States to vote against the new body. US Ambassador John Bolton had rejected any compromise that did not reopen negotiations on the council and reiterated that the United States would vote against a resolution to create it on a Wednesday ballot in the General Assembly. A vote was considered likely despite Assembly president Jan Eliasson's repeated calls for the new council to be approved by consensus of the 191 member states. Annan said, "in a normal democratic process, if you can get unanimity, well and good. But if you can't, and an overwhelming majority of the members go for something, I think it should work." "My understanding is that the US, even though they may not be able to vote for the council as it is now currently proposed, it will be able to work with the council," Annan said. Annan noted that the US had done "so much" for human rights in the past. The 191-member UN General Assembly has been unable to agree on a replacement for the current UN Human Rights Commission, criticised for including among its 53 members notorious human rights abusers such as China, Cuba, Sudan and Zimbabwe, the AFP news agency reported on Wednesday. Annan is in the final year of a decade at the helm of the United Nations. Mandela commended Annan for his ability to identify with different types of people. "Kofi introduced a new approach of respecting everybody whether he is black or white, and trying to serve them. That is the type of Secretary General of the United Nations that we want." After meeting Mandela, the UN Secretary General visited Soweto and laid a wreath at the Hector Peterson memorial, to remember the first victim of the Soweto uprising of 1976.

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

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.

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.

STORYLINE: Members of the British royal family bid a final farewell to Princess Margaret at Windsor Castle on Friday, 50 years after her father, King George VI, was buried nearby. 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.

But a Mexican company has found an innovative use for the country's growing mounds of plastic rubbish by turning it into low-cost housing. STORYLINE: Mexicans throw out more than four-thousand metric tonnes of plastic waste every year, and at the moment, about 90 percent of it ends up on landfills, waterways and beaches, according to the country's National Plastic Industry Association. Only about 10 percent of this plastic waste is reprocessed. Recycling facilities do exist in Mexico, but a lack of awareness among most people about the importance of reducing waste in the environment means that a large amount of plastic ends up on landfill sites. A company called Kuadro Ecological Solutions has spotted an opportunity among all the rubbish. Based on the outskirts of Mexico's second-largest city Guadalajara, Kuadro reprocesses plastic waste and turns it into plastic boards that can be used as a construction material. Every month, 40 metric tonnes of plastic waste from all over the state is sanitised and brought to the company's factory to be processed. Kuadro employs a team of workers to sort through a mountain of drinks bottles, chemical containers, supermarket bags, pipes and even car interiors. ==== You can license this story through AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/metadata/youtube/e697d8aacb8b5b106d48abda1ae84c1a Find out more about AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/HowWeWork

Looking forward, it gives us the opportunity to put aside recent tensions and to rise to the challenge and the promises of tomorrow.

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

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.

South Africa-Mandela and Nyerere news conference
 
02:15
T/I 10:19:00 South Africa is willing to assist a peacekeeping force in eastern Zaire once leaders in the Great Lakes region agree on what they want, President Nelson Mandela said on Saturday (9/11). Mandela was speaking to reporters after being briefed on the situation in eastern Zaire by former Tanzanian president Julius Nyerere, who has taken on the role of central African peace-broker. SHOWS: JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA, 09/11 WS house; WS South African President Nelson Mandela and former Tanzanian president Julius Nyerere address news conference SOT Mandela: "We do understand the important role which South Africa is likely to play in an initiative of this nature and we want to be part of Africa not only geographically and politically but as part of our commitment and I am waiting for specific information from my leader here and as soon as we get it we'll be able to announce it here"'; C/A press; SOT Nyerere: "The whole of this exercise is an African exercise, this is an African problem. Obviously we don't have all the means otherwise we would not go outside Africa. We don't have all the means but nevertheless it is an African problem and clearly though the countries of the regions are the ones who have met for this problem, we can't envisage an African force seeking assistance from the outside world, we can't envisage a force that does not have South Africa"'; C/A press; SOT Mandela: "The supply of arms to Rwanda was influenced by humanitarian considerations that people who were unarmed are going to be victims of that party outside the border which is being trained and prepared to go back and commit those massacres. It is in that light that we took the decision to arm Rwanda with the consutation of the leaders in that region"; C/A press; Mandela and Nyerere walk back to house; Runs 2.14 You can license this story through AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/metadata/youtube/1f5525b54009664d056c81ebd1e079ad Find out more about AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/HowWeWork

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

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.
