DETAILS OF TONIGHT'S PROGRAMME

From programme producer Kate McAndrew

DAVID DAVIS

Jeremy is down at Westminster doing the first of his interviews with the Conservative leadership hopefuls. Today's the turn of David Davis to put his case, but a recent poll in the Times suggests that if the Tories are serious about winning the next election, they should pick his rival, David Cameron.

Jeremy will also be asking about his promise to hugely cut taxes, as well as his ideas for the public services, and asylum and immigration.

The question of his pants-preference was dealt with by Martha yesterday, so we've taken that question off our list.

TONY BLAIR

"No regrets" is the line from Downing Street, despite the fact that last night the Prime Minister suffered his first Commons defeat since he took office in 1997.

He was beaten by 31 votes as MPs rejected the government's plan to allow the police 90 days to hold terror suspects without charge.

So after the fever pitch speculation about his future last night, how's it looking in the cold light of day? David Grossman is over in the Commons finding out.

TERROR THREAT

Dealing with the threat of terrorism is never far away at the moment and, round the corner from Downing Street, the Home Office has revealed the work of the groups it set up in response to London's bombings.

After the attacks in July, the government said it wanted to encourage Muslim communities to confront extremism.

The Home Office ministers Hazel Blears and Paul Goggins say they've met more than 1,000 people throughout the country, but have they been talking to the right people?

Peter Marshall is investigating.

Hope you can join us at 10.30pm on BBC TWO.
