Hello to viewers wherever you are.

We are watching the aftermath of the deadly Moscow airport attack and will bring you any developments and analysis later tonight.

But right now we are focussing on the Middle East. By the time we go on air we expect to have more revelations from the al-Jazeera/Guardian leak of a cache of Palestinian records which have already offered the most extraordinary insight into the peace process negotiations, just how much ground the Palestinian negotiators were prepared to give, and how hardline the response of the Israelis.

There is always a health warning though. We don't know if these are the totality of the documents and whether there are others which tell a different story.

Nonetheless, what has been the fallout of the revelations, and will they change the US approach to Israel in particular?

We have also been following up the "revolution" in Tunisia, trying to ascertain whether there will by any contagion. Tim Whewell has been filming in Jordan where he found people prepared to speak out against the royal family, despite the threat of the law.

The outgoing director of the CBI Sir Richard Lambert who stands down on Friday has fired off a broadside at the government over its growth strategy, or - as he sees it - the lack of it. He claims the government is not doing enough to promote growth at a time when spending cuts are likely to squeeze domestic demand.

"It's taken a series of policy initiatives for political reasons, apparently careless of the damage that might do to business and job creation."

He does though broadly agree with the speed and scale of planned spending cuts. We're bidding for the chancellor and his new shadow.

Join me at 10.30pm on BBC Two.
