Robert Morgan is today's programme producer - here's his early email.
Good morning everyone,
There are a few strong stories around today. The City stories are well worth pursuing. Mervyn King meets the CEOs of the big banks to discuss financial guarantees and there's the extraordinary rogue traders story.
The Tibet demos have spread to two more provinces in China.
Oscar-winning British actor Sir Paul Scofield has just died.
We have a film from Allan Little and Sara. Next week French President Nicolas Sarkozy makes a state visit to Britain with his new wife Carla Bruni. Sarko's had a difficult few months following negative publicity around his private life and bad election results for his centre-right party in the final round of nationwide local elections. Allan travels through the South of France for Newsnight to find out what the people of France think of Sarkozy's presidency and his policies.
Do come to the morning meeting with great ideas on how to do these or any other stories. Any playout ideas welcome.
