Tuesday's programme, presented by Gavin Esler, covers the following stories:

US elections

An exclusive Newsnight report on dirty tricks allegations in the US election from the team that revealed what really happened in 2000.

Greg Palast uncovers a new Republican plan which could bring voting to a halt in Democrat areas of Florida. Newsnight reveals an astonishing world where private eyes stalk voters and registration forms are forged by the thousand in the world's most powerful democracy.

John Peel

One of Britain's most celebrated broadcasters, John Peel, has died suddenly.

As a disc jockey who promoted cutting edge bands for four decades, and in latter life as the presenter of Radio Four's "Home Truths", he won a dedicated following of listeners across the generations.

People across the worlds of music and broadcasting have been paying tribute to a broadcasting legend. We pay our own tribute on Newsnight tonight.

Israeli vote

The future of Israel could be shaped by a key vote tonight. Ariel Sharon puts his controversial plan to pull out of the Gaza strip to Israeli MPs.

The result could change Israel geographically and politically. Sharon's Likud Party are bitterly divided over the issue and the prime minister will be left depending on the support of his political enemies, the Labour Party, for the survival of his government.

We speak to the Labour leader and former foreign minister, Shimon Peres.

P J O'Rourke

And - the author PJ O' Rourke gives us his own unique take on the US elections.

Newsnight is broadcast every weekday on BBC Two at 2230 in the UK.
