On the programme, we assess the implications of the Royal Navy personnel seized by Iranian forces.

Plus, theories surrounding the murder of Bob Woolmer whose death has shocked the cricketing world and beyond. Could there be links with allegations of match fixing in the game?

And this weekend is the 50th Anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Rome. We asked you what you thought Europe has done for us - your thoughts and those of our experts tonight.

Your views and comments on Friday's programme are welcome below.

EU flagThis weekend is the 50th Anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Rome. So what has Europe ever done for us?

Tonight on Newsnight two campaigners on European issues go head to head in debate. One thinks the whole venture has been a massive mistake from its beginnings in 1957. The other believes Britain should be part of a completely federal Europe and that the nation state is outdated. Let us know your views and be part of the debate.
