More detail on tonight's programme:
Does the 21st Century really belong to China?
If the size of the trade delegation he is leading to Beijing this week - comprising of four senior ministers, 50 business leaders, and the Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne, who is already there - is anything to go by, David Cameron seems to think so.
Tonight, Paul Mason reports on the Chinese threat to US global hegemony and we will be joined in the studio by a supporter of China as an economic powerhouse, and another who is much less of a fan.
From today the plans of each government department will be available online, in what Mr Cameron promises is a move towards greater transparency in Whitehall, and part of a radical "power shift" giving people the information to hold government to account.
"We will be the first government in a generation to leave office with much less power in Whitehall than we started with. We are going to take power from government and hand it to people, families and communities," Mr Cameron said as he launched the transparency website.
Tonight, we report on what the website offers, what the government expects it to deliver, and where it fits in to Mr Cameron's Big Society aspirations.
Susan Watts reports on Rolls-Royce's investigation into the cause of engine problems on the Airbus A380 - we'll discuss the reputational damage sustained by the failure of the "Rolls-Royce" of jet engines.
We're also joined by the Bishop of Fulham who has just left the Anglican Church to become a Catholic.
And we have Sue Lloyd-Roberts' second report from Burma. In this film she reports from the border between Eastern Burma and Thailand on how the Burmese generals are dealing with the ongoing resistance from Burma's ethnic minorities and making money at the same time.
