What's coming up on the programme, from the web team:
Tonight we have a special report on the Mumbai terror attacks of November 2008 in which more than 170 people, including nine gunmen, died.
Newsnight reporter Richard Watson has had detailed access to the Mumbai police investigation into the attacks.
The information he has uncovered includes startling CCTV footage from inside the Taj Mahal Palace hotel and intercepted telephone exchanges between the gunmen on the ground and their handlers, believed to be in Pakistan.
These recordings, in which the voices of gunmen and handlers can be heard, shed new light on how the events unfolded and raise new questions about who was involved.
Also tonight, Prime Minister Gordon Brown has been setting out his policy plans for the next year, seen by some as an early election manifesto.
Tory leader David Cameron called it a "relaunch without a spending tag" and accused ministers of "dishonesty" after Lord Mandelson said that the Comprehensive Spending Review would not happen until after the election - a statement that appears to have taken the Treasury by surprise.
We will be joined by the Chief Secretary to the Treasury and a senior Shadow Cabinet Minister to discuss the plan and whether Britain can afford it
Plus Paxman plays Glastonbury... well sort of.
