More detail on tonight's programme:
Met Police chief Sir Paul Stephenson has defended the handling of yesterday's tuition fees protests and the "commendable restraint" shown by royal protection officers when a car carrying the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall was attacked.
However, others have criticised the operation, with students accusing police of being heavy handed and provocative, others questioning why the violence was not contained more, with Whitehall's buildings and the royal couple better protected.
Tonight, Paul Mason reports on how the violence unfolded, who exactly was behind it, and the tactics used on both sides.
We have an interview with Daniel Ellsberg, the famous whistleblower who leaked the Pentagon Papers about the Vietnam War in 1971 about how he views Wikileaks founder Julian Assange and his website.
Plus, in collaboration with the BBC's Natural History Unit in Bristol we have a special report on the recent spate of shark attacks in Sharm el-Sheikh.
Join tonight's presenter Stephanie Flanders for all that at 10.30pm on BBC Two.
