Question Time returns
Question Time is back tonight after its summer break - some compensation we hope for the sudden autumn chill and the nights drawing in!
Interactivity and so-called user generated content - that's you giving us what goes in the show - are the buzz words of the moment. And you can't be much more user-generated than the classic Question Time formula of inviting 150 members of the public to tell it like it is to senior politicians and other public figures.
This week's line-up includes Christiane Amanpour - probably the most famous woman in TV news - who's just appeared on a list of the 100 most powerful women in the world. I'm sure Paddy Ashdown will be ready to face the third degree about Sir Ming's leadership of the Lib Dems if that's what people want to talk about.

If QT is a classic formula, there's still always room for improvement. This spring, Mentorn beat off fierce competition from other independent companies to continue making the show and they're introducing new elements to freshen things up. There's a new set and titles - bringing the show closer to the style of BBC One and BBC News. Let us know what you think. Question Time now has its own audience seating, making it possible to go to a much wider range of locations across the country.
There are also two additional shows - Question Time Extra will run straight after Question Time on BBC News 24, giving everyone at home a chance to have a say about this week's debate. And you can see an edited highlights version of the main show, again on News 24 at 20:30 on Saturday evening.
