Britain's social attitudes have become more liberal over the last 25 years with greater tolerance of homosexuality and co-habitation, according to a new British Social Attitudes survey.

Speaking on the programme, former Sun editor Kelvin MacKenzie, said the "dramatic change" in the UK's attitudes showed that "we are a fantastic country".

The UK economy has left the recession, after figures show the economy grew by 0.1% in the last three months of 2009. Richard Lambert, director-general of the Confederation of British Industry outlined what he thought the government should do next.

And the International Panel on Climate Change is coming under fire over mistaken claims on the fate of the Himalayan glaciers.

Jean-Pascal van Ypersele, vice chair of the IPCC, defended the panel's scientific methods, and Mike Hulme, professor of climate change at the University of East Anglia, and Tony Juniper, climate change campaigner and former director of Friends of the Earth, debated whether the IPCC should be reformed.
