Today's programme editor is Robert Morgan - here's his early e-mail to the programme team:

Good morning,

nuclear_nn203.jpgLots around today. We're hoping to have an exclusive report about Britain's nuclear security.

Iran's new top nuclear negotiator Saeed Jalili holds his first Tehran news conference today ahead of the release of a key IAEA nuclear watchdog report on the Iranian nuclear programme. Have the Iranian co-operated enough to reduce the chance of more sanctions?

Barry George has just won his appeal against his conviction for the murder of TV presenter Jill Dando.

The Government is seeking a compromise over its plan to extend beyond 28 days the maximum time terrorist suspects can be held without charge. Ministers are proposing that people could be detained for up to 58 days, but only in special circumstances. How would you like to do this story? Is there anything new we can bring to it?

Foreign Secretary David Miliband will give his first major speech on Britain's relations with the rest of the European Union.

All other ideas welcome,

See you at 10.30
