Our Diplomatic Editor, Mark Urban, is in Jerusalem tonight.
Heavy fighting on the ground in Gaza has intensified dramatically. Possibly the moment that will symbolise the conflict came today when an Israeli tank apparently blasted a UN school in the Jabaliya refugee camp, where hundreds of Palestinians had taken refuge, killing forty. Israel insists aid is getting in; but the UN has described the conditions in Gaza as horrific. Could this be the turning point in the conflict ?
Jeremy will speak to the Israeli Government and a UN representative dealing with the Gaza crisis.
Energy CrisisFrom our Economics Editor Paul Mason.
"Gas supplies to Eastern Europe are shut down - but who pulled the plug? And is Britain doing enough to protect its energy supplies? I'm on the phone to some very cold places today to get the answers."
Jeremy will be talking to the Energy Minister Mike O'Brien.
Politics From our Political Editor Michael Crick:
"I'll be looking ahead to what's in store at Westminster in 2009. On the economy, Europe and our special relationship with a new America - the year ahead promises to be eventful for all parties. "
And the Newsnight political panel join Jeremy for their musings on the world of politics this year.
