Radio 1's Newsbeat teams up with BBC 2's Newsnight to look at how the election and the parties' polices affect older and younger voters.

From political engagement, to benefits, housing and where the future of Britain lies, an audience of under 30s and over 60s will debate with politicians and experts. The show will explore whether the UK is skewed to benefit one age group over another. Who gets the best deal, why do politicians treat different age groups differently and is there an inherent inter-generational unfairness?

Presented by Kirsty Wark and Jonathan Blake, a rich mix of voters, policy makers and opinion formers will try to bridge the generation gap.

Newsbeat and Newsnight discuss the election with an audience of under-30s and over-60s.
