Manchester, New Hampshire, is the venue for the first debate between people vying to become the Republican presidential candidate in the USA. Up All Night asks in hour two if they're really up for the fight, or just keeping up appearances.

We get the latest from Syria in the first hour as the army continues its push north, and from Libya where there are reports that officers are defecting from Gaddafi's army to the side of the rebels.

Also in hour one we talk about The Pipe - the story of how some residents in a small Irish village are trying to take on the might of one of the world's big energy companies.

And Hugo Chavez, the President of Venezuela, has had emergency surgery in Cuba. Find out why, in the second hour.
