viewing a binlog to see when a record was last touched in mysql

A record was updated today, I need to see when/who modified it the last before today's date - what would be the best way to acheive this.

b) If it is to look at the log files in this month, do I need to go file through file to look into or is there a quicker way.

Assuming your on a *nix machine you can make a shell script like:

for file in `ls -1 /path/to/mysql-bin.*`; do
  echo ${file}
  /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysqlbinlog ${file} | grep 'put the string you are looking for here i.e. primary_key_column=value'
done

This will let help you identify which binlog file contains the statement you are looking for.
