Here's news of what's coming up in tonight's Newsnight:
Day five of the MPs expenses claims row, and Labour and the Conservatives are in a high speed race to seize the moral high ground.
Conservative leader David Cameron broke into a sprint this afternoon when he announced a series of measures for Tory MPs including a new expenses claims scrutiny panel and a ban on flipping houses.
And House of Commons Leader Harriet Harman says she is writing to the chairman of the cross-party members' allowances committee to see if any expenses money which has been paid out has been paid out wrongly, and that she to arrange for a system of repayments.
Tonight, David Grossman will take a look at just who is winning that race.
IMMIGRANT SONG CONTEST - ROUND TWO
Also tonight, it is day two of our Immigrant Song Contest. Afghan performer Hashmat and Zimbabwean band Mann Friday will be telling us their stories, giving us a taster of their music and performing a cover version of a famous Eurovision hit.
Do tell us what you think about their performances.
And of course join Jeremy Paxman at 10.30pm on BBC Two
