Gavin Esler's biography


From Gavin Esler:

Iraq attacks

The bombing of the Golden Mosque in Samarra has been condemned around the world and has led to sporadic violence within Iraq.

We'll be examining what an attack on this most holy shrine means to Shi-ite Muslims and considering whether all the talk about Iraq falling apart might be nearing reality.

Plus we'll have the latest from Baghdad.

Ethical man?

What does it take to live ethically nowadays? What might it mean? A carbon neutral, environment friendly, green lifestyle? Or something different?

We've set one of our reporters, Justin Rowlatt, the task of living ethically for a year.

Tonight will be the first in a series of reports from Justin as he tries to make sense of the ethics of 21st century living, and we'll be offering some advice, live in the studio, from experts who have very different views on what an ethical lifestyle might mean.


Unethical women?

And as Alan Sugar kicks off another series of The Apprentice tonight we'll be examining his comments that women should not flirt to achieve business success.

Does flirting offer women some unfair advantage? Or is it a legitimate weapon in an often still sexist and unfair workplace?

Don't men flirt too?

Newsnight is at 10.30pm on BBC TWO.
