Formula 1 – Turkish Grand Prix: Qualifying

Live event/outside broadcast
Saturday 6 June
11.10am-1.15pm BBC ONE

Jake Humphrey brings viewers coverage of the qualifying session for the Turkish Grand Prix live from Istanbul.

It's been an unpredictable season so far. Before it began, few would have expected Britain's Jenson Button and Brazil's Rubens Barrichello to have racked up so many points for the Brawn team. But it's another Brazilian who will be looking forward most to this weekend – Felipe Massa has won the Turkey race for the last three years, topping qualifying each time, including earning his maiden Formula 1 pole position back in 2006.

Robin Hood – Bad Blood Ep 10/13

High Definition programme
Saturday 6 June
6.45-7.30pm BBC ONE
Gisborne (Richard Armitage) is hit by a shocking revelation in Robin Hood
Gisborne (Richard Armitage) is hit by a shocking revelation in Robin Hood

Deep in the forest, Robin Hood comes upon a very jumpy Gisborne, who has escaped the clutches of his evil sister, Isabella, and the formidable Sheriff of Nottingham, as the medieval adventure with a modern twist continues.

Just as Robin and Gisborne take up arms against each other, tiny arrows pierce their necks and they fall comatose to the ground. They awake at night to find themselves bound and held captive by a mysterious elderly hooded leper, whose revelations will change their lives for ever and bind the mortal enemies in an uneasy truce.

The hooded leper only agrees to give them back their liberty on condition that they work together to save another who is in York and needs their help. Once their bickering subsides, they reluctantly agree to their captor's emphatic demand.

Then, by the fireside, the mysterious stranger recounts to Robin and Gisborne the truth about their traumatised childhoods – sad and troubled memories that have shackled them together with bad blood. As the leper's tale unfolds, both men come to understand what happened between their respective parents. Robin's widowed father, Malcolm, Lord of Locksley, and Gisborne's beautiful French mother, Ghislaine, and her devoted husband, Sir Roger Gisborne, were all thought to have met untimely deaths.

Robin and Gisborne are dumb struck when the stranger's narrative finally seems to conclude. But there is one further shocking truth to come.

Reeling, Robin and Gisborne stay true to their word and set off together to York to save their half brother, Archer, who, until now, they didn't know existed. They must move fast, not least because Isabella is on their trail.

Robin Hood is played by Jonas Armstrong; Guy of Gisborne by Richard Armitage; Isabella Gisborne by Lara Pulver; mysterious hooded stranger/Malcolm by Dean Lennox Kelly; Ghislaine by Sophie Winkleman; and Sir Roger Gisborne by Paul Hilton.

Robin Hood is simulcast on the BBC HD channel – the BBC's High Definition channel available through Freesat, Sky and Virgin Media.

Saturday 6 June
8.40-9.30pm BBC ONE

The paramedics are up against it in this week's episode of the medical drama, as Dixie informs them they are severely short-staffed.

Jeff has just received divorce papers from his wife and his deep-seated worry and anxiety about losing touch with his children stays with him throughout what proves to be an exhausting shift.

Polly and Jeff race from one emergency to another and are repeatedly called out to help a comatose drunk, followed by an explosion in a student's hall of residence, an elderly woman who has suffered a stroke, a man with multiple head injuries and a jogger who runs into a lamp-post.

For Polly, the shift is a steep learning curve. By the end of it, she realises she needs to keep a modicum of distance from her patients. But, despite her mistakes along the way, her fellow paramedics bond with her and recognise her warmth and humanity. They also reassure her and comfort her, following an incident that could put her life in danger.

Dixie is played by Jane Hazlegrove, Jeff by Matt Bardock and Polly by Sophia di Martino.

Tennis – French Open Women's Final

Live event/outside broadcast
Saturday 6 June
2.00-4.30pm BBC TWO

Sue Barker hosts live coverage of the women's final at the 2009 French Open.

It's an exciting and unpredictable time in women's tennis with four different players capturing the four Grand Slam titles in 2008, while the world No. 1 ranking has been changing hands on a regular basis.

Serena Williams followed up her US Open win last autumn with victory in the Australian Open earlier this year. But the American has never been totally at ease on the Parisian clay and it's been seven years since she last won the title at Roland-Garros. Serbian Ana Ivanovic, meanwhile, triumphed last year but has struggled since then. And, with no-one able to dominate on this surface since the retirement of Justine Henin, will there be a surprise name on the trophy this year?

Match Of The Day Live – Italy v Northern Ireland

Live event/outside broadcast
Saturday 6 June
7.30-9.45pm BBC THREE

Northern Ireland take on Italy in Pisa tonight in a pre-World Cup friendly.

After a sluggish start to their World Cup 2010 qualification campaign, Nigel Worthington's side have won their last four group games and will be looking for a good display against world champions Italy to keep up their momentum with their next competitive match not taking place until September.

But it will be a tough task – Italy are unbeaten after six games of their qualifying campaign and have won all four of their previous home meetings with Northern Ireland.
