Newsnight and Newsnight Review - Friday 27 Nov 2009
COMING UP ON NEWSNIGHT WITH GAVIN ESLER:
Richard Watson has uncovered significant new information on this week's Muslim schools funding row, which he will be revealing tonight.
We will also be looking at the Dubai debt problems, which have sparked instability in global stock markets.
Tonight, Paul Mason will be asking if this is a natural aftershock from the global credit crunch, which has the power to shake markets, but not send them crashing down, or if what we are seeing is a much more serious second stage to the crisis.
Also, we have a very powerful film by Steve Rosenberg ahead of the Demjanjuk trial on Monday.
John Demjanjuk is due to stand trial in Germany accused of helping to murder more than 27,000 Jews at the Nazi death camp of Sobibor in eastern Poland.
Steve Rosenburg has been talking to a man who survived the camp's horrors.
AND HERE IS KIRSTY WARK WITH WHAT IS COMING UP ON NEWSNIGHT REVIEW:
And then on Review David Aaronovitch, Bonnie Greer, Michael Gove and Haleh Afshar go rogue!
We'll be discussing what Sarah Palin's runaway success memoir/manifesto Going Rogue says about heartland America, the American media, and whether this is a new kind of launchpad for the White House.
The Coen Brothers have turned the spotlight on their upbringing in A Serious Man, set in 1967 in a brand new Midwestern suburb, where Judaism comes first and foremost in the Kopnik family.
The hapless patriarch Larry, finds his life unravelling in a darkly humorous way - his children disrespect him, and his lovely son is in a pot haze, his health is troublesome, students blackmail him, his wife wants to divorce him and he looks to three cryptic rabbis for answers.
And then the unique cartoon journalist Joe Sacco is pulled back to Gaza for his new oral history dramatisation of two almost forgotten events in the Palestinian - Israeli conflict. Does Footnotes in Gaza serve history well?
I hope you will join us, Kirsty.
