Tonight we lead on Syria. We will be hearing from Tim Whewell who has spent the last few days assessing the grassroots mood amongst supporters of President Assad and those who have been trying to oust him for the past 10 months, visiting the flashpoint city of Homs on a government-led tour and an anti-regime protest.
And in the studio we will be discussing what the international community should about the worsening crisis as David Cameron says that Syria should face UN-backed backed sanctions if it fails to halt its violent repression of the protests.
Also Liz MacKean reports on claims that some academy schools are unofficially pushing disruptive and failing students out to avoid affecting their league table standings.
We will discuss the claims and the plusses and minuses of academy schools with Vic Goddard, head teacher at Passmore's Academy, the school featured in the TV series Educating Essex, and prominent educator Katharine Birbalsingh.
Plus as the Daily Mirror's editor Richard Wallace tells the Leveson Inquiry that a hacked voicemail could have been the source of a scoop revealing Sven-Goran Eriksson's affair with Ulrika Jonsson, Richard Watson examines where the inquiry has got to so far and if there is any sense of where it is going.
