Newsnight is the BBC's flagship news programme and runs on BBC2 five nights a week. Its format, with a limited number of items covered in each show, allows an in-depth analytical approach to news stories, with a particular emphasis on political and economic affairs. The show largely eschews the "human-interest" stories favoured by many news programmes.

    The independent watchdog for health and social care says a fifth of NHS hospitals are breaking the law, when it comes to properly feeding and treating elderly patients. The Care Quality Commission visited 100 hospitals, and found cause for concern at more than half of them. Tonight we examine what was said and how much of this a reflection of how the elderly are treated in Britain more generally. Peter Marshall has a report looking into who are the backers who raised funds to pay for Adam Werritty to act as Defence Secretary Liam Fox's adviser, and David Grossman will have the latest developments on the story. We have a live interview with former Barnsley MP Eric Illsley who was jailed for expenses fraud. Susan Watts reports on the new obesity strategy for England in which the government has tried to stress the importance of personal responsibility. And we have a report on how garments labelled "designed in Scotland" and sold by UK high street chain Edinburgh Woollen Mill are actually being made by North Korean labour in Mongolian factories.

    The news that Liam Fox has resigned as defence secretary has changed our plans for the programme. We will no longer be running a piece on how proposed changes to planning regulations might affect urban areas and speaking to Lord Rogers about this issue. Instead the whole programme is devoted to Dr Fox's resignation, the events that led up to it, the questions that remain and where this leaves the government. We will have analysis from our Defence editor Mark Urban and reporters David Grossman and Richard Watson. And we will be joined on the programme by guests including shadow defence secretary Jim Murphy, former head of the British Army General Sir Mike Jackson, and journalists Fraser Nelson and Miranda Green.
