DETAILS OF TONIGHT'S PROGRAMME

From programme producer Jasmin Buttar

Nuclear

Has the British Government misled the world's nuclear watchdog?

Ministers have told the IAEA that the British government did not knowingly export heavy water, a vital component in the production of nuclear weapons, to Israel in the 1950s.

In a Newsnight exclusive, Michael Crick reveals the truth.

    Growing green

    We need green growth. That was David Cameron's message as he launched his party's environmental policy review this morning.

    But it is just this tension between green policies and economic growth that have stymied efforts in Montreal to forge an international agreement on climate change.

    Susan Watts asks if politicians are prepared to make the hard choices necessary to tackle environmental damage.

    We speak to Zac Goldsmith, the green activist heading the Tories' working party.

    Hostage

    The deadline set by the terrorist group holding the British hostage Norman Kember passes this evening.

    Have the pleas for mercy made by leading Islamists and a former Guantanamo detainee, Moazzam Begg, fallen on deaf ears?

    We'll have the latest.

    End of the Routemaster

    "When you are lost in London and you don't know where you are, you'll hear my voice a-calling, pass further down the car!"

    But it seems no more. London bids adieu to the Routemaster bus after 50 years of service.

    Tonight we have a personal tribute from our very own Stephanie Flanders.
