A bank note
Could the Labour Party be facing a financial crisis?
Presented by Jeremy Paxman

Loans for Lordships

The Labour Party's ruling body attempted to draw a line under the row today promising to "move forward together".

But big questions remained unanswered. Perhaps the most pressing is why did Lord Levy - the chief New Labour fundraiser - apparently ask donors to make loans when they offered gifts?

Also, with some creditors now asking for their money back, will the Labour Party be facing a financial crisis?

We will of course be inviting both the Labour and Conservative Parties to put forward a senior figure to answer to these key questions.

The Choice

We've been following the fortunes of children from Clapham Manor Primary as they attempt to get a place at a secondary school of their choice.

What happened to those that didn't get offered any place at all? We follow the families as they visit schools they previously wouldn't even have considered.

Iraq killings

The US military has announced an investigation into allegations by the Iraqi police that American soldiers shot dead 11 members of the same family last week.

The inquiry comes a day after Time magazine published allegations that US troops went on the rampage, killing 15 civilians, after a roadside bomb killed a Marine west of Baghdad in November.

We'll be examining the evidence.

4x4 outcasts

The Chancellor, Gordon Brown, is expected to penalise drivers of the least eco-friendly cars in his budget tomorrow.

The hike in road tax is being seen as an attempt to punish the latest favourite whipping boy - the drivers of large 4x4 vehicles known as SUV's or "Chelsea Tractors".

So is the Chancellor striking a blow for environmentalism or looking for a popular target to disguise the fact he doesn't want to take on the fuel lobby?

Are you a 4x4 outcast?

All that and much more at 10.30pm on BBC TWO.
