Jeremy Paxman's biography


From programme producer Liz Gibbons

Tonight we are devoting most of the programme to a discussion about Islam and the West.

It began as an argument about the publication of cartoons depicting Mohammed. But it's led to fundamental questions about the limits of religious tolerance, the future of multiculturalism, and whether ultimately we face an irresolvable clash of cultures.

We'll be asking whether the people who demonstrated outside the Danish embassy at the weekend can claim to speak for mainstream Muslims in this country, and have the latest on the action being taken by demonstrators and governments in the Middle East.

We'll be speaking to Muslims here and abroad - including a representative from the organisation Al-Ghurabaa who helped to organise Friday's demonstration, and to politicians from across the political spectrum.

Do join Jeremy at 10.30pm.
