Today's programme producer is Dan Kelly - here is his early email to the production team.
Good morning, some strong stories today,
Susan Watts has a very strong story on the vulnerability of Chip and Pin machines. The research has been carried out by Professor Ross Anderson's team, and illustrates how relatively easy it is to tap into a machine and create a cloned card. Could this explain the increasing number of "phantom withdrawals" form customers’ cards reported across the UK?
The anti-depression report plastered across today's papers is interesting - but will it feel very old by tonight? Do you have guest suggestions that could move the story on?
Jackie is in Jersey. Senator Syvret claims to have evidence that previous child abuse allegations on the island were covered up. We'll look at the evidence and see if it's worth pursuing.
The Turkish Government is to publish a new version of the Hadith - the collected sayings of the Prophet Muhammad - taking out what are sometimes regarded as harsh and misogynistic messages. What will be the reaction across the Islamic world? Could this be the beginning of a "Reformation" in Islam (as some claim)? Who could we have on to discuss this?
There are also some interesting developments on the MPs’ expenses story at Westminster.
How should we cover these stories? What other suggestions do you have?
I forgot to mention, we have an interview with Ralph Nader too
