Peter Snow, the BBC journalist famed for his swingometer, presented his last Newsnight yesterday. He has worked on the programme for 18 years but will now front Tomorrow's World when Howard Stableford leaves in the autumn.

He was in typically ebullient form last night when the disgraced Neil Hamilton appeared on the programme to answer questions about Sir Gordon Downey's report. As Mr Hamilton shifted in his seat and folded his arms while issuing strenuous denials of any wrongdoing, Mr Snow remained effortlessly charming as he quizzed the ex-MP.
