"Sure. Hello. I'm your oldest son with the BBC news events are being held across the United States to mark the 20th anniversary of one of the signal events of our time. The Islamist attacks on New York and Washington Al Qaeda hijackers flew planes into the twin towers of the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, killing hundreds of people. 1/4 plane crashed in Pennsylvania. President Biden will visit all three sites. The attacks led to the war in Afghanistan, where the Taliban now back in power after the US withdrawal had sheltered Al Qaeda. The BBC's John Simpson is in Pakistan, where the Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden was killed by US special forces. He considers the impact of America's war on terror. 9 11 undermined America's sense that it was somehow invulnerable in the world. Osama bin Laden in planning the attack was certain it would bring an end to America's power. Yet Washington's initial response to 9 11 got huge international support. But then George W. Bush's administration took a far more extreme step. Anxious to demonstrate that America was still as powerful as ever is. Officials started linking Saddam Hussein of Iraq with 9 11, which simply wasn't true. In 2000 and three the Americans with British help invaded Iraq and overthrew Saddam that created huge international opposition. And it soon became obvious that America wasn't all powerful militarily. Now a new power seems set to dominate there. China. The 9 11 anniversary has also been marked outside the United States, the U. N secretary general said the cowardly and heinous attacks had been said in the minds of millions of people across the world. The head of the European Commission, said the response to the violence had allowed the very best of human nature to shine through. Even at the most trying of times and in Britain, Queen Elizabeth trade paid tribute to the resilience and determination of the communities who joined together to rebuild after the attacks. Four of the six Palestinian militants who escaped from the maximum security Gilboa prison on Monday have now been recaptured by Israeli forces. The six escaped through a tunnel excavated using a rusty spoon. Tom Bateman is in Jerusalem. Palestinians feel deep sympathy for those Israel detains As news broke of the first to being caught, militants in Gaza fired a rocket into southern Israel, which was shot down.

Tom Bateman reporting World News from the BBC. Pakistan International Airlines says it will resume flights from Islamabad to Kabul from next week. It's the first foreign airline to restart a commercial service. A spokesman for the airline told the French news agency.

The Polish government has been particularly critical of the just completed Nord Stream, two gas pipeline project accusing Germany of supporting the investment behind the US back.

"Tom to journalism dakota uk podcast. What's the working situation like fuel cell from the moment when speaking Pretty normal ashley for us. I'm part of the main national radio. Newsroom at the bbc's headquarters in london. I'm for the most part we have been working in the office and that is mainly being technical reasons other than anything else. The bbc simply hasn't had enough laptops to give out to the hundreds and hundreds of staff that we have so we have been coming into the office. Open very kovic secure. We've been doing covid tests before we started a run of shifts with social distanced Meetings on zoo now So it's all very siphon. It's quite strange how quickly that has become normal practice compared with how we were just a year ago and running a completely different sort of operations. So we're still producing all the same content. Hopefully listeners won't notice too much of a difference but it's actually quite different in terms of the the way that we're working in the office. But i have done very little working in the large air and so i've had a more normal pandemic than a lot of other. People are surprised business as usual than yeah. I guess oh Because the knees wheels. Keep turning. And i'm working on output for radios to full mainly and there are huge audiences to stations. Who are expecting us to be giving them as much corona virus news and updates as we possibly can and so we don't have a choice you just got to keep on trucking and you've been busy In january this year you launched your website news break yes and that came about because i was alarmed quite frankly at the start of the year any people i was saying on social media and this was journalists from across the sector and not just broadcasters that i know people the i never met who seemed to be really quite despondent that we got into twenty twenty one and things hadn't changed from people i've spoken to over the last couple of months even though it was obvious that we weren't going to get into january and suddenly everything would be k. Again i think psychologically people thought that that would be the opportunity to maybe look full woods getting into a new year and yet because nothing did change. People started to think well. How much longer are we going to have to do this. How much longer are we going to be. Just bombarded with so much grim information that we have to process and imparts an audience in the clearest possible way that we can seemed endless. You've already seen a range of contributions from reporters at pale. See sky news and global radio. What's been the key takeaways of those pieces and some of the common messages is being amazing. Really how willing people have been to be completely honest and upfront about the experiences that they've had we've had a whole variety of experiences shed with us from people having to move home in the middle of a pandemic and going through personal tragedies like the loss of relatives at having to juggle that with the grenades that processing a work and having to strike some kind of balance and inevitably taking a huge toll on them. And we've also had people talking about the ways in which their day-to-day lives have changed work. You know we had somebody right for us in local radio who has been pretty much entirely working from home in a way that hadn't happened during the pandemic and yet there is still the responsibility on them pretty much. Is the soldier journalists for that local radio stations to provide listeners to that station with the same insight sign local knees into stronger balance between bringing people the information that needs to about corona virus. And everything that's going on. We're licensed the pandemic in their area but to find light shade to how he had taken great comfort for his own personal mental wellbeing. In seeking out the happy stories the quirky stories. The thing that people remember at the end of the knees. I think shown the there are so many different approaches to dealing with wellbeing to managing your own wellbeing. And there is no one-size-fits-all experience. Of course there is. Everybody stories is individual but the way the people have dealt with. I think has given something people who've read the articles on yeast break a little bit of an insight into again making them that they're not alone that they can be a route through even if things seem really difficult. Great to have talking about experiences isn't just writing into the void it's resonating and having that ripple effect as it were. Let's come onto your own experiences with mental health tom. What can you tell me about that so. I was diagnosed with health and cries. He some years ago evan. In a nutshell. It's basically what used to be called hypochondria. But i would suddenly develop a symptom of some salt. Be that Amal come my body or a strange sensation. In my chest you focus on it. It becomes something that you come ignore. The more you worry about it was the simpson becomes suddenly. That's the way you perceive it because the brain very cleverly is mimicking the simpson rav of actually being a sign of something serious. But you don't know that and because you have the status in your minds. The nagging doubtful sajida to adult show. You go have various tests the knees really and until you get results. That comeback clear it's negative than you can't rest up econ rest easy and that becomes sometimes. We'll encompassing it. Got so bad for me that i had to go into therapy because it was taking every waking soul when you're trying to do a job like mine as journalists with you gotta have your wits about you gotta have you full focus and i couldn't devote mine time line sometimes so the task in hand so i that something has to be done about it so i went through several courses of therapy and ended up taking medication. Which is she helped me a lot. It's not for everyone in my side. That everybody i speak about this but for me. It is certainly helped for me to get in control of the health anxiety. It's not a kid by any means. I think very few people who've experienced mental health problems that the kid somewhat like that but it certainly allows me to be in control of the rather than it being controlled mate.

British TV and the threat from tech

"How this week off. Calm the media regulator put out a pretty stark warning traditional. Uk broadcasting is at risk without radical shake-up but at risk of what and. What kind of shakeup are they talking about already. This ofcom is given the go-ahead to two new tv channels including one from rupert murdoch's news. Uk and ofcom is reportedly about to take on the massive task of regulating online harm including social media platforms like youtube an instagram but is a uk regulator really able to police the world wide web. While i'm joined by the person best able to answer those questions day. Melanie does is the newish chief. Executive of com a job. She started in february this year. And she's giving her first major interview to the media. Show elanie welcome to the media. Show thank you very much. Let's start with a quickfire round what you listen to this morning. Gosh i was listening to bbc. Radio news radio four today program. Which is what i often do in the mornings. I'm also these days increasing times radio well but that's how often wake up in the morning. I watched your perm new source. That you i heard two in the mornings day program. So it's a mix of the traditional newspapers. We got quite a lot in our household during the day. I i look at sky news up quite a lot. also bbc news and i'm a fan of bbc. Radio and things like newscast is one of my favorites as well. What was the best thing you've seen on. Tv recently This time of year for me and my family is definitely strictly is just that time of year. Isn't it so. We're addicted to that. Every saturday night and sunday night for the results. Show georgia tech news most evenings. Some evenings are sometimes. Watch the bbc news. Sometimes i tv but to be honest increasingly like a lot of people. I'm i'm watching things on ketchup or doing things on the radio. Lord by the world catch up shortly in terms of online video. Subscriptions huge choices as disney plus amazon. Prime video netflix. Do you have. We've got two three disney but we've got net flicks and prime and some of the others so so we watch a real bletchley of traditional british tv alongside some of the new streaming services and we'll come onto kind of that balance and what it should look like in the future life for those who don't know huge amount about your background your career. You very distinguished career seven. Have you have actually worked in the arts or media or on a film set. Tv newsroom any of that stuff. No i never have myself. But of course what what i what i do bring is inadequate. Lot of understanding. You're kind of public policy. And how you make decisions in that context and i am also an avid viewer and listener. Tv and radio. Why would come appoint someone who's a massive public policy but it hasn't got a background in media and communications. I mean sharon. What was she went to the treasury for many is what does that say about the thinking behind that your appointment what. I'm not so much sure about my own appointment but the important thing in off comments that we have got a lot of experience from all sorts of different walks of life. We've got people who are radio engineers. He knew everything about managing spectrum. Which is one of the jobs we do. We've also got a lot of people with a background in the broadcasting industry. So might my job is to leave the organization and pull that together now. This is the show. We talk a lot about off. Komo news programming media regulator. This may not realize quite how broad you'll remain is. Could you just give us a quick run through of the cost of various that. Come under your purview. The communications regulator. So we look at things like how we get broadband improved across the country and mobile phone services making sure that the consumers valley served. But we also gonna come onto you today. We oversee the broadcasting costing sector and some of the rules and regulations that were that just says of come does a content regulator. Can you talk us through this week's ruling you made over i tv. What did you find what happens next. We found that. I had broken our rules. This is about how they were running on their competitions and some viewers who who wrote in and we're in that competition didn't have their votes counted. So what was great with a really good engagement with tv. The moment they spotted this they told us about it and they've they've really taken steps to address it so we won't be taking any further action but they did break the rules the rules. Should they be punished including facing fines. Well in this case it was human error it was just about putting the data on a spreadsheet incorrectly. And also i. Tv did engage with us really well. I'm really constructively right from the beginning. So we take that kind of thing into account and that's why we'll be taking further action of comes authority outfit. Come from the fact that it can hurt people financially. There's a bit of social stigma opprobrium attached to the fact that you might be found against by off calm but is your power ultimately that you can hurt people in their pocket. Well i mean. I think when you a regulator you've got a range of things that you're you're able to do one of them. Yes is to is to sanction people and find things but ideally is a last resort. An awful of ofcom does and we've been. We've done this in the report. We publish this week is actually bring research and evidence bear on on important questions and to make sure this transparency about what's going on let's focus a little bit on euro as a content regulator and look at some of the other big media stories around this week so all of a doubt in the culture sector. You must speak to you. On a regular basis. as written to netflix's asking them to make clear their drama series. The crown is fictionalized. Now if the crown with broadcast on bbc one and therefore fell under of comes burkas code which you guys make. The bbc put a disclaimer on it. Well i think it's a really interesting question. I mean you know as as you hinting out. There are different rules for different kinds of streams that we can now crtv so if you watching a program on bbc warn itv's for pretty much on sky virgin then you'll again you're watching programs are regulated by off. Commander are broadcasting code. If you're watching netflix six then it's a much narrower so regulations. In fact the regulator there is in holland because net flicks headquartered there for the whole of europe and actually you're watching on on youtube. Then there's no regulation at all so it is quite confusing sometimes for the viewer. Things

Looking back at the reaction to John Lennon's death 40 years ago today

"Today, the former Beatle John Lennon was killed in New York in an act of violence that shocked millions of his fans and then had been shot by a disturbed fan as he returned to his home the Dakota apartment building with his wife, Yoko Ono. Reporting live from the Dakota for BBC News at that time was Tom Brook 40. Years on Tom, who lives in New York, has been taking a very personal look back at his memories of that night and exploring Lenin's growing legacy today. Imagine where Snow heaven John Lennon's anthem Imagine is routinely performed by musicians and fans in Strawberry fields that section of New York Central Park dedicated to the former Beatles memory. Just across the street from the Dakota apartment building. 40 years ago, the Dakota was where John Lennon's life came to a sudden and horrific end. Millions of Americans first heard the news while watching Monday night football on the ABC network. Unspeakable tragedy. John Lennon, outside of his apartment building on the west side of New York City, shot twice in the back dead on arrival. It's half past six time for today. Good Good morning morning from from Brian Brian Redhead Redhead and and Libby Libby Purvis. Purvis. The The former former Beatle Beatle John John Lennon Lennon has has been been shot shot dead dead outside outside his his home home in in New New York York in in London. London. The The BBC's BBC's Today program was on the air, bringing first news of Lennon's death to British audiences. I had rushed to the Dakota found a public phone booth on West 72nd Street. Everyone around me. Lennon fans were crying soon I was on the air talking. Can you tell us exactly what happened. John Lennon was killed two hours ago. I got most of my information from talking to the literally hundreds of fans who are now congregating outside the Dakota building where they're going to hold on all night vigil, and it's a very weird scene indeed, because they're playing Lennon music. A lot of them are in tears and they're weeping on there, either stunned or they're hysterical. That seems like a long time ago and itwas over the years I've watched this journalist colleagues have covered the deaths of other pop culture figures, but none seem to bring forth the collective grief Witness with John Lennon. Celebrated New York photographer Bob Gruen was one of Lenin's friends. Well, the reaction to his death was worldwide. And it was such a shock. You know that he died, and then he died so violently. When all his life you've been talking about peace and trying to help others imagine peace. And here he was shot for that. But 40 years on the trauma has receded on John Lennon now has a new generation of fans some very young among them. 10 year old Yasha, Kigali's who I met in Strawberry Fields. I like the words and I like the music and I like the room and how it all goes together. I think that it's about something that is very important. Imagine novel the people today in these pandemic weary, conflict ridden times. Young musicians like Tom McKay, Hearn and Seattle really embrace Lenin's message. The fact that he emphasized love and peace and this idea of striving for something that doesn't currently exist. I still see that message is something that we need. Thinking about something that's beyond ourselves is just incredibly powerful. Not everything in relation to Lenin was wondrous. He could be mean and nasty, and he admitted that he abused women. None of this has really affected his legacy. If anything, his stature as a musician has grown since he died, it's still making an impact. As music journalist Jordan run talk explains. He has one of the truly great voices in rock history. And now you have artists like Liam Gallagher of Oasis and then modern bands like Tame Impala and cut worms who will get that very specific went and asked vocal sound because it's such a trademark. Hold someday join us. Today I live just four blocks from the Dakota. Sometimes I wander into strawberry fields. I think what I like most about Lenin was that he had an authentic voice. Not just musically. He did and said some stupid things, but he wasn't a fake something quite refreshing to ponder. In our age of endless posturing by politicians and celebrities. No problem.
