Here is what is coming up on Tuesday's programme:
The UK Consumer Prices Index (CPI) annual inflation rate rose to 4% in January, up from 3.7% in December, and well above the 2% target.
Tonight our Economics editor Paul Mason will be reporting on what can be done to curb inflation and since it is not being met, what the point of the target is.
American academic Lawrence Mead, whose ideas provided the for a tough overhaul of US welfare, has visited Liverpool to see how the UK benefits system works and give his assessment of what must change.
Afterwards we will discuss the issues raised by the film with Mr Mead and Work and Pensions Minister Chris Grayling.
Plus in the studio we will be debating whether Health Service Ombudsman Ann Abraham's damning report on how the NHS is failing to treat elderly patients in England with care, dignity and respect reveals a growing resentment of and disregard for the elderly.
Join Jeremy Paxman at 10.30pm on BBC Two.
