From programme producer Kate McAndrew


Our top story tonight concerns a fascinating document on extraordinary rendition which has come our way. Peter Marshall is checking it out.


We're expecting the Independent Police Complaints Commission to reveal its findings into the killing of Jean Charles de Menezes in the next few days. Our reporter Richard Watson is in Stockwell, where the Brazilian was shot, looking into the themes running through the upcoming report.


At the headquarters of the IAEA in Vienna, Mark Urban has been talking exclusively to Robert Joseph, the U.S. Undersecretary for Arms Control and International Security - therefore the man who has Iran's nuclear ambitions in his inbox. The news isn't great; he concludes Europe's approach has been shattered by the country's actions.


Kirsty has been talking to Constance Briscoe, author of the book "Ugly", about her ascent out of the most appalling childhood to a top barrister and part time judge.

Hope you can join us at 10.30pm.
