Dimbleby previews BBC2 Clegg v Farage debate on Europe

The host of Wednesday night's BBC Clegg v Farage debate said it was his job was to "get the two of them arguing".

David Dimbleby, who was reminded of how he introduced a 1975 BBC debate on Europe, told Andrew Neil that nearly 40 years on the "topics are exactly the same", with democracy and jobs top of the agenda.

BBC2 The European Union: In or Out? is on BBC Two and BBC News channel from 19:00 BST
