Monday's programme, presented by Eddie Mair, covers the following stories:


Where are the men who tried but failed to bomb London last week?

In the last hour, the police have revealed new information about the four men they want to talk to in connection with the attempted attacks. They've put names to two of them, released new photographs and appealed for information about where the men bought several white plastic food containers which held the bombs.

And as the hunt for the guilty continues, concern grows over the death of the innocent. Mark Urban will report on both, giving us the latest on the investigation and the fall-out from the shooting of Jean Charles de Menezes, killed in error at Stockwell tube station. Did he run from police because, as we now know, his visa was out of date?

As the Independent Police Complaints Commission begins its inquiry, Richard Watson is investigating what went wrong, the questions arising from the shootings and its repercussions.

We'll be discussing the latest developments in the overall investigation, as well as the police's so called shoot-to-kill-to-protect policy. I'll be talking to the Israeli Foreign Minister, Silvan Shalom, about suicide bombings, international terrorism and the bomb attack in Sharm el-Sheik which so far is thought to have killed at least 60 people.

And we have a special investigation into the expulsion of the Bushmen of the Kalahari from their land. Sue Lloyd Roberts has been to some of the reserves to investigate claims that the people are being moved on in order to facilitate diamond mining in which the government has a stake.

Join me if you can. There's nothing happening in Big Brother.
