Who's writing the ground rules as the MOD heads for a major Defence Review? Defence Analyst Francis Tusa explains the disagreements going on behind the scenes.

The Royal Navy's Type 45 destroyers will get major work done to stop their power failures, but former First Sea Lord, Admiral Lord West tells us he still has big concerns.

Has the government deal to re-open Stormont come at a cost to some Northern Ireland veterans?  Mark Francois MP is worried.

And we pay tribute to the broadcaster Peter Hobday, the first presenter of Sitrep, who died this week.

Presented by Kate Gerbeau with Christopher Lee.
