Here's some more detail on tonight's programme:
Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has issued a warning to banks over excessive bonuses, saying in an interview with the Financial Times "The banks should not be under any illusion, this government cannot stand idly by".
Chancellor George Osborne is currently in New York banging the drum for British business. Tonight, David Grossman, who is also there, will be seeking clarification from him on what the coalition government intends to do if banks refuse to comply.
And in the studio we will be discussing whether limiting bank bonuses is do-able, or indeed desirable.
Senior GPs have said today that they are "deeply concerned" that Britain is facing a major flu crisis this winter fewer people in at-risk groups have received the seasonal flu jab.
We will be talking to one of the country's foremost experts on respiratory diseases.
Plus, Stephen Smith reports on how some councils in England have been wielding the axe this holiday season - but it is not budgets which are being cut down, but Christmas trees.
So just how much have councils been spending on decorations this Christmas? And how will Newsnight's Christmas decorations compare?
Find out on our last programme of 2010 at 10.30pm on BBC Two.
PS We are back on air on Tuesday 4 January 2011 - hope to see you then.
