Thursday 22 October 2009
Here's Emily with details of what's coming up tonight:
Tonight, ladies and gentlemen we bring you Cheryl Cole, live, in the studio, singing a bit, and discussing current affairs in split trousers.
Okay Maitlis, nice try.
Tonight, in the absense of Cheryl Cole, we bring viewers of cult-viewing-show-Newsnight a rigorous debate on the very future of the Royal Mail.
Does postal communcation in 2009 feel like mining in 1984? Will this strike signal the beginning of the end of a service many feel is becoming less and less relevent?
Newsnight has an exclusive poll tonight which reveals just how highly esteemed the Royal Mail actually is by the general public. We ask if people still know the name of their postman.
Well, do you?
'Kill Emily Howell'
The composer that is receiving death threats because - some believe - she goes against the very spirit of music creation. We will listening to some of her music and debating whether she should, in fact, be dead.
Sound a little extreme? Call it the spirit of the age. Or at least the night.
Peter Hain? We're relying on you to be watching, tonight, sir.
Join us, 10.30pm on BBC2. I said TWO, that's 2.
