We look at today's stunning England victory over the All Blacks at Twickenham, a lawyer tells us what Facebook can do with your pictures, plus music news, gaming, and hypersonic planes in Technology.

  • So what exactly can Facebook do with pictures you've uploaded?


    Have you seen those "legal disclaimers" some people are posting on Facebook, asserting their rights to uploaded holiday snaps? Helen Zaltzman will be looking at whether they work, or if they're hokum, as this website suggests. An internet lawyer will also be giving us a definitive answer about exactly what Facebook can do with your photos when you upload them.

    Also this week..... 

    Gaming with Guy Cocker, the editor in chief of Gamespot, who was one of the few people who managed to get his grubby mitts on a Nintendo Wii-U, before it was released at midnight on Friday (no queueing in the cold for him, oh no). And what happens when dubstep meets 8 bit?...Er, this browser game from Skrillex actually. Give it a go!

    There's loads in Tech this week, with our expert Rory Reid. When it's built, this Spaceplane will fly to Australia in 4 hours and 40 minutes. It's not a concept - British engineers are already testing its engines, and a vital part has just been given the thumbs-up by the European Space Agency. Also, why Cambridge academics want to open a centre to work out if artificial intelligence will lead to Arnie-style Terminators, and how volunteer patients who've previously lost limbs will go under the knife this winter, to have bionic arms anchored directly to their skeletons

    And there's music news too, with Chris Hawkins from 6 Music - with details of who's headlining at 2013 Summer festivals, the best albums of this year, and his music picks of the week. All this, and much much more on the programme.
