3:03 pm
fellow support up. why i guess this is the important thing a good spirits when we are facing the trial. he expects to be sentenced to seven years in jail john is considered one of the masterminds of the umbrella protests of twenty fourteen the umbrellas are a symbol for passive resistance to the hong kong police during a seventy nine day sit in demanding free or elections. however the protests failed since then the political sands have shifted in the city. the government is now taking more action against unwelcome views. human rights groups call it a campaign of intimidation by the chinese authorities. they're sending a clear signal that the. that the space for civil society to raise sensitive questions about hong kong's future in hong kong is
3:04 pm
is. shrinking the public prosecutor's office refused to speak to doit chevelle about chance upcoming trial. john himself is pessimistic more protest events have been cancelled and a foreign journalist has also been expelled i don't see any of this in the near future that we could get democracy this is a time to be friend i'll sell to defend our existing freedom and our rights and we need to strengthen our civil society. john kinman xpect to be convicted but for now he runs while he's still free. but for how long we have with us now joshua wong he's the secretary general of the demo sisto opposition party joshua was one of the leaders of the so-called m brawler revolution in two thousand and fourteen thanks so much for joining us joshua. you were jailed last year for your
3:05 pm
role in the occupy central movement nine other people are now facing charges as we heard there of causing a public nuisance but this case is about far more than that isn't it. we just where or how they can come from and how to create a true effect and hong kong and not only suppress young activists just like me but also at the same time. all progress a religious leader legislator increases. is the one who has been generally last year i. believe that might be sent to prison next year and. generally all separate and the jealous and it might be at lismore that idea so it is about time for under the hot line policy of president xi jinping ok now joshua of the protests and two thousand and fourteen didn't get beijing to change its
3:06 pm
position you spent a year in prison now we're looking at nine other individuals facing up to seven years in prison with all that being considered was it worth it taking the hard line that you have against beijing. we realized a rising trying to model under the leadership of c jinking all i would recognise the empress she just totally. give the first aware little that we recognise that part just like human rights and freedom i was a that i have no hope to the region but i threw it all on people especially well we need to fight against a lot just a foreign power in preaching you know where i believe hundred thousand people might come this week again when flying off the leaders being the here and is to show that under. under this oppression and the indifference of beijing we must not keep silent we will continue in this long battle ok but if these leaders are put in jail
3:07 pm
who will lead the movement are there other individuals in hong kong capable of carrying on as you have joshua. we expect that the paid a price compared to the activists just like this of the new south or that have been . jailed and mainland china or i think the price paid by activists in the hall is just a small piece of cake. i was challenged by the government and just like chen the leaders they just leave the movement and quality and all that i demonstrated it at the same time next year when they are general. assembly demonstration approaches so what i mean is we just have to let go to realize that. they hope to silence the whole generation not only do that i think that but go progress first moment her all religious leaders at the age of fifty sixty or seventy from the one just born.
3:08 pm

3:09 pm
. vaughan alcohols dawn was seen as a star karma credited with leading a dramatic turnaround over the last two decades rescuing it from the a bankruptcy let's have a look at his career and his fall from grace. carlos ghosn is regarded as one of the most dazzling managers in the automotive business after all he has the partnership of renault mitsubishi amnesty on and his belt. but he's been under investigation for months now the japanese comic can miss on accuses don't of tax evasion. on monday miss sunset an internal investigation showed he has underestimated his income for several years ago and is also said to have used company money privately nissen's board of directors now needs to decide whether it will dismiss him as the head of the japanese carmaker. according to the japanese newspaper asahi going is cooperating with authorities and has already been
3:10 pm
questioned he was arrested on monday. has been called the coast since his time at the top of rent and some credit him with bringing back on the great success after years of high losses and debt. my colleague steve because they have been following this fast moving story for us. is quite a figure in the automotive industry tell us a bit more about this regularity is really one of these old school sort of auto titan exciting again and of course as we heard from the piece that's exactly what he did he was brought in to nissan right after the partnership with renault was announced nissan was putting too much on parts didn't have exciting designs it couldn't reach certain markets and it was just sort of tied down by some older business practices a lot of which actually tied into sort of the japanese way of doing things i remember this model in the eighty's was very exciting sort of a japanese you know take on auto engineering and sort of auto process but there was an additional things there that he changed he turns it around so he cut
3:11 pm
a lot of relationships with suppliers things like that to really cut down costs this is someone who is seen as an outsider and heavily criticized for it he's one of the few c.e.o.'s of a large japanese company to come from overseas and yet he made it work within three years he brought his son back to profitability and he really made that partnership thrive and he really became a business titan because of that and what he did at nissan is really a case study for a lot of the best business schools around the world now so he is a very very prominent figure what a fall from grace but there has also been the have been other problems with mr wright in recent years as with some other auto companies we see that their issues in terms of the trust they have of consumers one of the internal problems they had actually was with a car certification process that their product line managers had to do they mess it up four years in a row and there are recalls significant recalls that came as part of that then there is also a data emission scandal not too unsimilar from what we've seen around here that was announced earlier this year and then of course compensation has been very
3:12 pm
controversial when it comes to go on and. that's something that now we're seeing bearing fruit here he was heavily criticised for how much pay has taken and the french government which owns part of a no has actually vetoed vetoed a compensation package for him believe it was a year or two ago it turned out a sort of overridden but then there were some other costs recut the point is it's been a controversial topic and now we're seeing it come up again quite a different way what does that mean for them if it is done now and of course for the larger lies within the limits of issue rights we've seen in the short term of course that the stocks have fallen that's an immediate sort of gut punch reaction you know what you have to remember is that there's also the french government there's a lot of jobs tied into this the french government has ownership of renault which is part of this alliance their concern president manuel mccrone has already given a statement about you know what this means and trying to hold the line stable so you can see that this is sent shock waves throughout the world again a business titans would like steve jobs suddenly going down i was out though that
3:13 pm

3:14 pm
future of the nation is at stake making the case for her bracks a withdrawal deal to a conference of business leaders she told them that britain would regain control of immigration countries like once we've left the e.u. we will be fully in control of who comes here it will no longer be the case that e.u. nationals regardless of the skills or experience they have to offer can jump the queue ahead of engineers from sydney or software developers from delhi instead of a system based on where a person is from we will have one that is built around the talents and skills a person has to offer. and in brussels the e.u. use chief negotiator michel barnier he spent the morning getting approval for the deal from ministers of the twenty seven e.u. member states he had this to say after that meeting we are in fact at the decisive moment in this process no one no one should lose sight of the process the progress
3:15 pm
that would be achieved in brussels and even longer. and pretty that ministers to this report overall package in particular a member states report to craft read through agreement and do you side which really didn't need to do their mean internal procedure of the union for agreeing to extend the transition but grover speaking to dealing fair and balanced. there so is that acceptable agreement any closer let's bring in our correspondents in london bear get my ass and in brussels garrick mathis caregiver to start with you a key moment in brussels focus is now turning to the future of the trading relationship what kind of possible sticking points are emerging there the political declaration brian that ministers but also all of fischel is here in brussels and leaders on the
3:16 pm
weekend will be still be working on his fourteen page strong so far and it's quite a secret it's well guided because ambassadors over the weekend were not allowed to take copies away a number of things could potentially be sticking points you have for instance fishing rights where the french and the dutch have vested interests that these issues are clarified you have spain which is concerned about the status of the problem and then you have the british side of course that would like to see a tailor made be spoke trade agreement fixed already in that declaration that makes a backstop rather unlikely all of that i don't think we'll see in there i think we'll see one was it will not be a legally binding fourteen page document but you'll see some things that will point towards the incentive on both sides that they do want to see an orderly breck's it ok whistle looking for clarity a number of issues and in brussels be argued in london the number of conservative party rebels is growing raising the chances of a leadership challenge against
3:17 pm
a reason may if she's still going to be prime minister by the end of the week. there your guess is as good as mine brian we are in an extraordinary situation to resume a he's just been here at the c.b.i. at the employers conference here in london and trying to sell her deal to britney spears news and she's had a woman positive response however if you kilometers up the thames we know that there are her own in peace who are plotting against her and who really don't want to spread to due to go through a number of them think this is such a dirty oh it's better to crush out with no deal of course this is not what britain spin is once again giving false and on the type of response the nature of the response she got where you are at that c.b.i. conference. well it was interesting she ended her speech with determination and i think it was quite a lot of defiance in her words when she said i am determined to see those three but
3:18 pm
also acknowledging that there are people who are who don't want her to see this tree the business world is really very adamant that they need a deal for britain's employers for big businesses particularly for those that trade a lot with europe which are reapers entity at this conference they are adamant that they need frictionless and orderly brits and so they don't want to come to this position where there is a cliff edge at the end of march next year and they don't know what the relationship with the e.u. is so they have a very clear position and the reception of two reason may was very positive there was one gentleman who was a critical question and was talking about trade deals with other countries rather i had not the e.u. if that was more important and he basically got boos so overall a lot of support for terrorism a from business person london and a source in brussels thanks to both of you so very much. now for a look at some of the other stories making the news today at least thirteen people

3:36 pm
on display when president xi and u.s. president trump meet at the g. twenty summit in argentina later this month. talk about this a bit more of a finance correspondent out there. joins us from singapore for that rather disappointing summit is a pick really all the way to becoming completely irrelevant. well that's a very valid question and it's a sentiment that many do share both delegates and critics of the summit what was once established in one nine hundred eighty nine to facilitate trade deals the framework for treat future trade deals and agreements has for once in its twenty nine thirty years failed to fulfill its function and the u.s. trade war is not the only thing in the spotlight to be blamed for this disagreement for this impasse it's also the issue of china's you political tussle that
3:37 pm
being discussed and at the heat of contention the u.s. has implied that china. is more like soft bullying through infrastructure and trade deals region in fact actually survive without chinese money. oh well for less developed countries probably not mike pence mentions that the american indo-pacific plan. mentions that there are ways to help smaller countries borrow or use chinese money more prudently quote unquote or even maybe maybe even reject it but the truth is if china is not spending on these countries who will especially with trump and it's his protectionist policies if the u.s. is not spending on anyone but themselves at the moment who will but china. joining us from singapore thank you very much. we are ready to make major cuts on

wasteful spending that's what italy is deputy prime minister. said in an interview over the weekend it's a signal that rome might be ready for a dialogue with the european commission over its costly budget plan brussels had earlier rejected the budget saying more debt would put the stability of the whole euro zone into jeopardy the e.u. is set to announce its next move later this week. the italian government is holding its course but on the streets of rome people are nervous now that the ball is in the e.u.'s court many italians fear that brussels will have to crack down on the italian government to maintain credibility. i think that this almost personal war against europe will not enable us to free ourselves from the disadvantages we experience and will not help us enjoy the advantages of belonging to the e.u. the good. i feel uneasy very much so because we are in
3:39 pm
a very difficult situation and the people who represent us don't seem to understand the reality of the country my greatest fear is for the young people. because that could reach over what. i know that our financial situation has never been great i'm worried about the clash between italy and the e.u. i hope it will be solved in the best possible way. your mother will see even more. brussels could impose billions in fines on rome but italy's vice premier matteo salvini has stated that reprisals would do more harm to the e.u. than italy at the end of the day so the crisis continues to escalate. the people of iran started to feel the effects of tough u.s. sanctions imposed last month they argue our new sanctions target the key energy banking and shipping sectors businesses have been suspending production thousands of workers nationwide have been laid off now the u.s.

3:41 pm
a one of the reasons the u.s. reimpose sanctions. this student says he's ready to join the military at any time iran's deployment of militias and neighboring countries costs lives and billions of dollars. in the city of caution these young people have other things on their mind than fighting all sanctions. they seem to be in high spirits as they visit the city's tourist sites. maybe if we are not happy here but. the old alphonse had to live in the here and leave here and they needed to have their country. but in many parts of terror run the mood as. people wait in line patiently to buy imported medicines the products are not on sanctions lists but they're increasingly difficult to get hold of locals don't
3:42 pm
blame everything on donald trump but also one domestic mismanagement and corruption . there are two groups of people in our society the rich and the poor the rich are getting wealthier while our situation is getting worse. the sense of national pride may be at risk as to runs residents prepare for hard times. or germany has a new tennis star xander vera of beating world number one novak djokovic last night winning the season ending a.t.p. finals style oliver moody from sports is your to talk about that just how big was this win this is really the moment that we've been waiting for with alexander you know he has clearly been a special young talent we've been keeping an eye on him for the last couple of years the problem with him was that he just couldn't seem to reproduce his best
3:43 pm
form at the big tournament and now he's done that you know the a.t.p. final basically the the biggest tournament of the year outside of the grand slams and a couple of really big wins that is there of picked up along the way as well they sort of federal the semifinal and of course joke of it in the final so this is a really big moment in his career let's have a look at how he did it us take a look at the highlights from the final right now. alexander serve was high on confidence and it showed in the opening stages. after breaking novak djokovic to serve threat of silver six full victory in the all important first set. first it was he turned on the stall in the second set with a delightful ray of shots. with saving his best for last. with. of the
3:44 pm
a member leaving evidence obviously the biggest bit of it one first of all want to look great. not only this week but you know how you play the second hour of this year we may never see that before when you barely watch the match i'm actually very thankful you want to me to know of the undoubted highlights of sarah's fledgling career but one he may eclipse in twenty nineteen. all working expecting the future from this young twenty one year old so to be a superstar sure i mean i think most important thing with the timing you've got to look at the timing of it he is just coming up to his best years are just going to be coming out to his best years at the same time as some of the other guys just coming to that but end of their careers you know you look at someone like roger federer for example thirty seven years old now this era that he's had of great dominance is coming to an end and the other big guys who have shaped men's tennis for the last fifteen years the likes of jack a bitch of course along with rafael nadal and andy murray all in their thirty's

murray by the way is a great example of a player who got unlucky with the timing you know he had been born in another era could have won far more than the three grand slams that he's got with vera it's the opposite you know he is the best young player out there right now and he is going to be coming really into his peak at a time when the other guys are just beginning to fade away and by the way the last german to win the finals was boris becker wanted to bring it up now if you're going to fight exactly so we might i look at a new boris becker here for germany you know what about talk about you know he had a great term and then a great years well he had a great back heart of the year after. he set a really rough couple of years by his standards you know twenty seventeen in particular no grand slam wins for him not really poor form by his standards but he's pulled it back round in the in the second half of this year when wimbledon and when the u.s. open as well and i think he's going into his favorites ornament next year strategy and open in january beginning of next year that's his happy hunting ground so to speak he's won there six times already and we're very keen to add
3:46 pm
a seventh title and prove that he's not done for just yet the likes of may have to weigh a little longer before they can start racking up the grand slam titles for the young talent in this war thank you very much. we have some football now and germany have been relegated from the top division of the nation's league but there's still a lot of stake in tonight's match against the netherlands dutch can qualify for the final four with a point while germany move is a strong performance from his team as he seems to show the world a revival is on the horizon temperatures have plummeted in germany because you are can live is hoping to reignite the fire in his team after a disastrous year a convincing win over the netherlands would help germany get back on track. on sheer it was a difficult year there are a lot of disappointments torsional after the year got off to a poor start with defeats to brazil and then austria team management also
3:47 pm
criticised for the way they dealt with measured controversial meeting with turkish president red chips i pad on and then came the embarrassing first round exit at the world cup the germany coach also faced criticism for being too slow to implement change. it's important to learn lessons from years like this and then take action what can be done better and what are the solutions to. this is what the future could look like leroy soni yulian brand. and says. players born in one thousand nine hundred five or ninety six you're sure kimmage is the same age and has already played for germany thirty seven times. mine and. it's my goal to improve and take responsibility. but the coach doesn't come to me and ask for advice he has a lot more experience than i do wish lipton magazine. thomas miller also has more
3:48 pm
experience he's one of only half a dozen world cup winners left in the squad he's on the verge of his hundredth appearance for germany well under a flight. said they were taught and needed the breda thomas miller is always here and gives everything for the team he's almost played one hundred games in a row he deserves a lot of respect and if he plays against the netherlands then i'll get a beer for may after the game. it's not exactly champagne but nobody expects that after the year that germany have had . for the past four years tourists visiting berlin's famous museum have not had the full run the place not because it's partially closed for renovations will remain so until
3:49 pm
two thousand and twenty four but now a multimedia exhibition brings this engine city to life and it's larger than life actually as it features a huge karama by yachting r.c.c. and karen from v.w. culture is here the tells all about that good day to you sounds like a great time to do some time traveling here absolutely you know this is going to take us back to what the city of the ancient city of paragon might have looked like in the year one hundred twenty nine to be exact and it is thanks to yet a gar is easy so he's of course the austrian rainy an architect too is he's also an artist very much so based right here in berlin that he specializes in these huge three hundred sixty degree panorama picture incredible detail on believable that it is really isn't this funnily enough you know this panorama concept is an art form that was very appreciated and very much the rage back in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century so the idea of course was to give the viewer the impression that they're literally physically present in the scene that's being
3:50 pm
depicted and so before i go on let's have a look at what it can look like and even more data. the ancient city of paris good morning is faithfully recreated in fine detail. a c.c.s. colossal panorama made its public debut back in twenty eleven now assisi is presenting an expanded version in what he's dubbed the panel meter built for the purpose mixed of berlin's am. in preparation for his new panorama yet to get a c.c. has made six trips to the real program on in turkey today in the town of the gamma there he scrutinize the area from every angle hoping to find more inspiration for his project women then or when you visit the actual location you could have very personal impression nothing can beat that the presence of so it's an unwritten law
3:51 pm
for me that when i'm working on a project i have to go to the actual site that's very important for. he took photos on location for his original plan a rama but for this new version he staged additional scenes in berlin with some forty actors. among the scenes are a stone masons workshop. a slave market. and a sacrificial altar. he's even immortalized himself as a market vendor. is seen in a month going back twenty years at first the scenes of people were more a secondary element i thought i'd put a few people in to put the picture in the proper scale and now the becoming the most important element because i can get through to the people the viewers by way of the people mention out on. a c c's panorama brings the antiquities to life offering a journey back through time to ancient pergamon nearly two thousand years ago.
3:52 pm
karen just looking at that you get a real sense of everyday life in this greek city there's actually located in today's turkey yes it's a little bit confusing of course the original ruins are located in what is today's turkey in the western part of the province of izmir about one hundred kilometers north of the port city of izmir and the city was of course a major center in the greek world back in the time we're talking before the time we're talking about so the romans took over from about eighty eight b.c. and then held sway all the way up until about the third century and we're seeing the city there in this depiction what it would have looked like under the roman emperor had emperor hadrian now in this exhibit i should add you know that a season has been he's been very clever in sort of. blending the virtual and the real sort of with with his panorama because he's made this connection between the classical and the modern so that visitors can see some of the key pieces from the
3:53 pm
paragon museum's collection of classical antiquities including the promethea scroope that we see here and the head of hercules. and some other prominent works found in the ancient city of paragon that's of course you know the romans basically resting on all of the greek existing greek buildings and greek art incredible this bridge between the classical and the modern in what was once greece and turkey and assisi specializes in these type of. elsewhere as well he's been very fascinated with this idea of immersing yourself in the picture since he was a small boy actually and particularly on how to build three dimensional perspectives into a two dimensional freeze since two thousand and three he's made about fourteen of these giant kind of ram is the first everest in leipzig that was giving a view of the world's highest mountain a scene from the base camp one of his best known works is this one from twenty twelve depicting the berlin wall in the one nine hundred eighty s.
3:54 pm
a very impressive historical recreate german division and you can still see it next checkpoint charlie. and then of course the twenty six thousand here we are he turned his attention to the church reformer martin luther and did a massive panorama of the town center back and typically using a lot of real people when he was photographing these these these very detailed scenarios that you can just imagine the work that goes into it he grew up in east germany. i should add which is why he's got a very personal connection to to many of these places like the. obviously to berlin and is rotunda as are typically about one hundred one hundred meters around and thirty meters high so we're talking an absolutely massive scale you really do disappear into this work yourself as the viewer when you go in so it's it can be a very contemplated kind of experience because you can definitely sort of retreat into the picture and just choose yourself where you're actually going to be where
3:55 pm
you're going to follow the story so they're definitely worth a visit and this technique you as you mentioned is an older one goes back to fairly recent history of a century century and a half eighteenth and early one nine hundred century and they were of course. very popular before the advent of cinema so once once of course in the twenty's and thirty's when cinema came along people decided oh well this is much more interesting because it moves but this is this is what people there were there was a very famous scottish when i can the name of the artist escapes me at the moment but back in the late eighteenth century when this kind of thing became extremely popular and there are a number of them around europe that still exist and we find out more to website of course on the website w dot com slash culture as always thanks very much for bring us up to date i look forward to getting out there to get a word about that so you're watching d.w. news live from when we have more coming up at the top of the hour don't forget there's more as karen mentioned at her website about all the culture news you might want to get as walls the news we report for you from everywhere around the world
