Presented by Jeremy Paxman

In 89 days time more than 180 countries will gather in Copenhagen to thrash out a new international deal to tackle climate change. Tonight Susan Watts will be asking if there's sufficient political will to make the talks a success.

Justin Rowlatt has been at Heathrow Airport as Rochelle Wallis, the Canadian woman who became one of the first people to fall foul of the unintended consequences of rules brought in last year to stop forced marriages, prepared to leave the country. In a letter to Mrs Wallis the Home Secretary Alan Johnson described what was happening to her was "an inconvenience" - she says her marriage has been ripped apart.

The mother of WPc Yvonne Fletcher who was murdered by a Libyan gunman in 1984 fears that the release of the Lockerbie bomber means she may never get justice for her daughter's killing. Queenie Fletcher has been speaking to Jeremy.

And on the eve of the 25th anniversary of the discovery of DNA fingerprinting Claire Marshall has been speaking to its inventor, Professor Sir Alec Jeffreys, and to Kirk Bloodsworth - the first man to be freed from death row in the US by DNA evidence. Have you taken a DNA test? Join the debate here.
