11:09 am
has died he passed away at the age of 76 on to suffering a long illness he started is his career in advertising and later shot to fame is the director of films such as midnight express mississippi burning and vater arca was awarded and knighthood and the british academy's lifetime achievement award. and for more on parker's extraordinary life i'm joined by the w.c. film guru scott rocks for scott the academy called parker communion because of the sheer breath of film styles he used did he have a signature. i don't think so not least the classic sort of europe what the europeans called you a true or some one who tries to tell the same kind of story as distinct way of looking at or have what parker was he was more a craftsman i mean he made socially conscious thrillers like the mississippi burning or midnight express but he also made musicals paint for the madonna
11:10 am
starring musical. literary adaptations of the comedies and basically he was he was a really a workaday filmmaker a crash and i think that comes from his background as you mentioned in the commercials directory started in the british t.v. commercials industry and i think that informed how you approach cinema he was looking to just sell one certain type of story or out one specific look. he was more interested in using the potential so much different types of stories and really did also technically push the boundaries of what cinema to do now i have to say i'm embarrassed to admit i've saying very few of his films many of which are absolute classics now for people like me scott where should we stop you know it's interesting because. you can dip in almost anywhere when it's so many different types of movies but i pick maybe starting at the very beginning this 1st movie bugsy malone which is not as easy to find these days it's not as the same as some of his bigger although with movies but it's a lovely movie it's
11:11 am
a parody of american musicals and american gangster films but starring the entire cast of children it's really a delight to watch and then i have to take my absolute favorite film of his commitments an adaptation of that roddy doyle a book about irish soul singers and that's just out of 2 hours of pure joy there's no way you can go wrong with that and what a fantastic soundtrack that i do you know so what would you say is his pockets legacy and for the industry and filmmakers alike. well i think her greatest impact on the british film industry i mean he was the 1st of the generation she commercial directors i don't reckon that went on to make movies that the 2 most famous but also little traction director at lynn is another and they didn't pull that european art out of the instead look to make commercials movies but aesthetically to sort of break the ground i think it was the 1st of those directors and it really. set the path for many of the follow up the only other and the other impact we have wasn't
11:12 am
although it was he was the 1st one to make a big socially conscious los angeles of the mississippi burning because that looks and that should have created a type of movie where people some of the writers the award style will be making a big commercial film that has a sort of social conscience i think parker was one of the 1st to do that in that style and that is implicit you still see. scott thanks very much for that scott rocks for from date of any culture. now to a story of birds and the being in the german state of area is well known for its love of b. and its immense production of the beverage but in one small town drink is echoing this state and all because of a pair if everything's. a bag paper cold that's locked in just to machine gun fire or perhaps a mysterious laugh these white storks have made their yearly marker tree journey from africa and stars in

a place to nest in the small german town of move though didn't prevail. normally it's seen as a sign of good luck for stork chooses your roof to nesting or not for this. protected species in germany chose a rather inconvenient spot to nest to this year. we already had one last year in the roof of the brewery now the young storks when they come back they often come back to the same place so they look for a place to build their nest and they did it in the chimney of the brewery. be a production was forced to be suspended and christian needed a special craftsman to carefully move the nest so production could resume but then came the coronavirus lock down. we. had already planned that when the nest was built we would be able to raise it but when it was finished we were in full lockdown no craftsman were available.
11:14 am
with no trades person available christian was forced to wait as this began to run lot. for baby stores have since hatched it with coded restrictions slightly lifting the nest could be moved next week. a craftsman is coming next week he's going to build the elevation we hope to be able to start brewing beer in the next week but we have to wait 5 or 6 weeks until the beer is ready so around mid september so there will be a short period of time which will have to find other solutions. while b.m.r. run dry at this brewery for a few weeks the stork seem unfazed by the trouble they've caused maybe plotting a return to this spot next year. you're watching data over the news or reminder of the top story we're following for you u.s.
