BBC One Autumn 2007


Euro 2008 Autumn Qualifiers


England resume their Euro 2008 qualifying campaign this autumn, with four home games out of their remaining five left to play. Only the top two teams go through to the next stage of the tournament and England cannot afford to drop any more points in their quest to qualify for the finals.


All four of England's home games will be shown live and exclusive on BBC One. Their opening match is against Israel in September and will be the first competitive game at the redeveloped Wembley. England then take on Estonia, Russia and Croatia in what will prove to be a crucial final series of matches.


The Match Of The Day team, including Gary Lineker, Alan Hansen, Alan Shearer and Mark Lawrenson, will provide expert analysis and comment on all the action on the field, as well as results and updates from other key matches across Europe.




Sports Personality Of The Year 2007


Sports Personality Of The Year returns this December to honour the biggest names in the world of sport.


Now in its 54th year, the prestigious Sports Personality Of The Year award will be given to the sportsman or woman whose actions have most captured the public's imagination over the past year. Viewers can vote for their Sports Personality by phone and text message.


Last year's winner was equestrian World Champion Zara Phillips. Early front runners this year include Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton and tennis star Andy Murray.


Other hotly contested awards to be presented include Team Of The Year and Overseas Personality Of The Year, and a Lifetime Achievement award will honour a true legend of sport.


Once again, members of the public will be able to attend the event which, this year, will be bigger than ever before.
