hoodies203.jpgWe look at the case of one 10-year-old with an ASBO who also has a mental health disorder - is this how we should be treating our kids?

Plus the spiralling cost of the Olympics; the data Google keeps about you and how the US government wants to get its hand on it; and just how is Robert Mugabe's government staying afloat?

And what else should we be covering on tonight's programme? Get in quick and tell us below - Thursday's programme starts at 2230GMT.

padrecole203watch.jpgAs part of Newsnight's Window on Iraq series, padres stationed with troops in and around Basra are making a series of video diaries about their work and experiences with the British forces.

In this first Newsnight diary, Padre Cole, the joint force senior chaplain in southern Iraq, reflects on a difficult few days prior to the recording.

There are now more chaplains serving with the British armed forces than at any time since World War II. While we are concentrating solely on those in Iraq, former BBC correspondent Martin Bell has been looking at their role across all current conflicts for a BBC Radio Four programme, God and the Gun. One Padre who took part in that programme spoke to the BBC News website.
