Jeremy Paxman gets a lesson on remixing from The xx

On Wednesday 16 February 2011 Newsnight has a special programme on the Alternative Vote (AV) - the pros, cons and likely impact of a switch to this electoral system.

Ahead of the programme we turned to Jamie Smith from The xx, the Mercury-prize winning group who provided the anthem for our 2010 general election coverage, to try his hand at remixing the Newsnight theme tune.

Here Jamie and Jeremy Paxman discuss the process involved - ahead of the unveiling of the remix on the AV programme at 10.30pm on Wednesday 17 February 2011 on BBC Two.
