BBC Three Winter/Spring 2008
Music & Sport
The Glastonbury Festival – the largest greenfield music and performing arts festival in the world – takes place from 27 to 29 June at Worthy Farm in Somerset.
The BBC's comprehensive coverage includes the best from the Pyramid, Other, John Peel and Jazz/World stages, special acoustic performances and reports from the wider and wilder parts of the site, capturing the festival's spirit for armchair revellers. Highlights can be caught on television, radio and online.
Glastonbury 07's line-up included Arctic Monkeys, Dame Shirley Bassey, The Killers and Björk.
BBC Three's Glastonbury coverage last year helped push the channel to its best weekly audience share and reach, with 15.2 million viewers tuning in between 18 and 24 June.
Africa Cup Of Nations
The Africa Cup of Nations is the definitive competition in African football, a festival that captures the imagination of the continent and millions of people around the world.
This year, BBC Three follows the 26th cup as Ghana, the hosts and seven-time finalists, and the other 15 qualifying teams look to wrest the title from Egypt, the current holders.
Presenters Jake Humphrey, in London, and Marcel Desailly, in Ghana, bring viewers colourful and imaginative features about the teams, locations and competing countries. And, with many of the teams fielding a host of British-based stars, there'll be no shortage of team line-ups and stories fans in the UK will recognise.
The event runs from 20 January to 10 February, with match locations in Accra, Kumasi, Sekondi and Tamale. The final takes place at the Ohene Djan Stadium, in Accra.
