Pakistan's president has some questions for Tony Blair
Comment on this programme
Musharraf and Blair
Tonight, the tensions between the key players in the so-called "war on terror".
Today President Musharraf is meeting Tony Blair and is expected to ask questions about the revelations on last night's Newsnight.
We revealed a paper written for the MoD's Defence Academy which suggested that Pakistan's secret service, the ISI, has been indirectly helping al-Qaeda and the Taleban.
Mark Urban will be analysing the extent of the problems (not least between President Musharraf and Afghan leader Hamed Karzai who last night refused to shake hands) and how dangerous a situation this is.
Prescott pulls his last punch
As the Labour conference packs up for this year - John Prescott announced he is packing up next year in HIS final conference speech. Martha spoke to him straight after his speech.
With two vacancies in the next nine months the political jostling is already intense and as Frank Luntz demonstrated for Newsnight on Monday John Reid may be a man to watch.
Today - in contrast to John Prescott's fond farewell - John Reid made a barnstorming speech. Is he a serious contender for Number Ten?
Trees in the Commons
It's official - the government is contributing to the destruction of the rainforest.
Tony Blair and Gordon Brown may have emphasised the importance of the environment in their conference speeches, but there is saying... and doing.
Newsnight has discovered that rainforest timber is being used in the House of Commons and government offices as part of a multi-million pound refurbishment programme. I'll be asking the minister for the environment, why.
Crick and the Conservatives
Michael Crick is very excited - well, even more excited than usual. For the first time in his memory he's actually been invited to a Conservative meeting.
Not only was he present at the London Battersea candidate open selection meeting he filmed the proceedings chaired by Michael Portillo... AND as a local resident he had a vote!
We also have an interview with Martin Amis on the publication of his new novel House of Meetings. As our culture correspondent Stephen Smith discovered, Amis's testosterone-fuelled writing days - or rather his days writing testosterone-fuelled fiction - are over.
He is thinking bigger and more philosophical thoughts - but he still manages to rage against the Booker!
