Jeremy Paxman is presenting this evening. Here's what's happening on the programme...
We will have the latest on the alleged terror plot behind the arrests of 12 people yesterday. Richard Watson will be here with his assessment of whether Britain is facing a new kind of terror threat. Eleven of the arrested men are Pakistani nationals. We hope to be speaking to the Pakistani High Commissioner to the UK live from Islamabad.
Also, a film from Kosovo and Albania that raises new allegations of kidnap and torture of civilians by the Kosovo Liberation Army both during and after the war in Kosovo, which ended nearly a decade ago. Watch a clip here.
And this from our Economics Editor, Paul Mason:
"I'll be looking at the UK economy and, for once, instead of going "Yikes" going "Mmm... interesting". The point is that we are now one month into the experiment in quantitative easing and it seems to be working. There is the odd sign here and there of other palliative measures finally taking effect. But everybody I have spoken to today warns of one big unresolved problem. The banks. Just when they thought they had wedged an exploding canister between the jaws of the credit crunch it comes back from the depths and bites you. Is anything we are doing to fight the recession actually working? I'll give it my best shot at answering that tonight."
Do join us at 10.30pm.
Newsnight will be taking a break after this evening's programme and will return on Tuesday, 14 April, 2009. Newsnight Review returns on Friday, 17 April, 2009.
