Here's what is coming up on the programme:
From the web team:
Voters in European polls have delivered a damning verdict on Labour, with the party suffering its worst post-war election result and getting beaten into third place by UKIP.
The poll also saw the BNP gain two MEPs - the first time the anti-immigration party has won seats at national elections.
Labour's dismal showing, in which its vote share was just 15.3%, has triggered more calls for Prime Minister Gordon Brown to step down and cost him another minister.
Jane Kennedy resigned as environment minister saying that she was unable to continue to support Mr Brown and was fed up with "the bullying, the threats and the intimidation" being orchestrated by Number 10.
Tonight, Mr Brown will be trying to rally support at a make-or-break meeting of the Parliamentary Labour Party. Michael Crick will be bringing us reaction from there.
And David Grossman will be looking into Ms Kennedy's claims about the dark arts employed by Number 10.
And we return to the housing estates in Salford we first visited in the formative days of the New Labour government.
To what extent has the government delivered on their promises to turnaround some of the most deprived areas in the country. And how has the recent political turmoil impacted on their standing with these key heartland voters?
Join Jeremy Paxman for all that and more at 10.30pm on BBC Two.
