Presented by Emily Maitlis

Our correspondent Tim Whewell and his producer and cameraman have spent all day in the thick of the riots in Cairo. So comprehensively has the country's communication system been shut down that it's been almost impossible to stay in touch with them all day. We hope to bring you the latest from them tonight.

But of course, this story is not about our difficulties in bringing you a broadcast, but whether Egypt is on the verge of an all-out revolution. And if Egypt - often seen as the leading force in the Arab world and the political gateway to the West - follows Tunisia, then which countries might be next?

So many questions follow that one: How will Western leaders approach relations with Egypt if their key ally in the Arab world is overturned? Is this Barack Obama's longed-for Change We Can Believe In? Or is it Change That Will Terrify the Living Daylights out of him?

We'll ask key players in the UK government and the US.

And, the Archbishop of Canterbury has called on the UK government to rethink the status of Ugandan asylum seekers in the light of the murder of prominent gay activist David Kato. Will they? We're on the case.

Do join me for more at 10.30pm on BBC Two.
