Thursday 10 December 2009 - in more detail
Here's Emily Maitlis with what is coming up on tonight's programme:
Forget all that you've heard about Tiger Woods' sponsorship deals running out. A brand new one came in just today. It's from Paddy Power, Ireland's largest bookie and it is offering the beleaguered golfer a million dollars.
The catch? Well, the endorsement is of a new product they're calling Tiger's Birdies. And, as you correctly surmise, it's a bet based on predictions of the number of birdies holed by Tiger over four days of a golf tournament.
Well that is what you were thinking, isn't it?
We'll be talking about Tiger, sponsorship, modern infidelity and its cost a little later on the programme.
MPs' expenses. It takes a serious claim to knock the duck house from its poll position of numero uno expense gaffe. But today, Quentin Davies is revealed to be vying for the award. He tried to claim for repairs to his bell tower.
Doncha just hate it when your bell tower starts leaking? No-one should have to tolerate that in modern-day Britain.
We'll be looking at this new lot of expenses and we'll debate what the revelations say about MPs and what they've learnt.
Newsnight's trawl through the last decade comes to a close tonight when we land on fashion in the Noughties.
It was the decade when fashion got fast - and, arguably, democratic. The turnaround from the catwalk to the high street became obscenely quick.
The focus, like never before, was on the dressing of the celebrity - the rest of us were then shown how to get the same look at a hundredth of the price. What has that done for the way we view celebrity and the way we dress ourselves?
Here's a sneak preview of the film:
Tonight, we'll be talking to one of the most thought-provoking designers in the business - Hussein Chalayan - who once proved so brilliantly that a skirt didn't just have to be a skirt, it could also be a table.
Confused? All will be explained later. Join us at 10.30pm on BBC Two.
