Paul Mason is in Cannes on the eve of the G20 summit which has been totally overshadowed by the euro mess. Read Paul's latest blog here.
He will be bringing us up to date on that and tonight's emergency talks between Germany, France and Greece which follow Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou's shock announcement that there will be a referendum on the eurozone rescue plan.
Mr Papandreou has got backing from his cabinet for a referendum, but what is the wider mood in Athens? Mark Urban is there and will be reporting on the programme.
And we'll be joined live in the studio by Mike Mills and Michael Stipe from US band REM, who announced recently that they were calling it a day after 31 years.
