Here is what is coming up on tonight's programme:
MPs from the two main parties at Westminster may challenge the independent auditor - and their leaders - about requests to repay some parliamentary expenses.
Gordon Brown and David Cameron have urged those on all sides to comply with the process. But there is growing anger that the review of claims made over the past five years has led to retrospective limits on some allowances. David Grossman is on the case.
And, who carries the blame when an innocent man dies after being assaulted by the police? That's a question raised following the death of Ian Tomlinson at this year's G20 protests in London.
But it is also a question that is still unanswered 30 years after the death of a teacher in another London demonstration.
His name was Blair Peach and the Metropolitan police commissioner has finally promised to release the findings of their investigation into his death after keeping them secret since 1979.
It was widely reported at the time that the inquiry recommended charges be brought against individual police officers. Tonight, for the first time, the inspector said to have been a prime suspect speaks about his role in an exclusive report from Peter Marshall.
Also, a law firm has abandoned a bid to prevent the British press from reporting proceedings in Parliament.
Carter-Ruck had tried to stop all media revealing that a Labour MP had tabled a question relating to oil-trading firm Trafigura and Ivory Coast toxic waste.
When Paul Farrelly asked about an injunction blocking the publication of a report on the waste, called the Minton report, Carter-Ruck argued that an order stopping media revealing that the report had been blocked applied to Parliament.
Tonight Liz McKean will report on this case and the prevalence of media laws being used by large companies to restrict information.
Join Jeremy for all that and more tonight at 10.30pm on BBC TWO.
