Sue Barker presents live coverage from Wimbledon as this year's Championships near the halfway point. The middle Saturday of the tournament has thrown up some memorable moments in the past – Andre Agassi said farewell to Centre Court on this day three years ago when he lost to Rafael Nadal. The American did, however, return for the Centre Court roof test event last month. Last year, Russian Dinara Safina was involved in a three-and-a-half-hour battle with Shahar Peer before the Israeli finally prevailed 8-6 in the final set.

Andy Murray was also among those in action on this day last year, making a winning appearance on Centre Court. British fans will be hoping the same is the case today.

John Inverdale and former champions review the main events in Today At Wimbledon at 10.40pm on BBC Two, and viewers also have a chance to catch up with yesterday's action in Yesterday At Wimbledon on BBC Two at 6am.

Wimbledon and Today At Wimbledon are simulcast on the BBC HD channel – the BBC's High Definition channel available through Freesat, Sky and Virgin Media.

Robin Hood – Something Worth Fighting For:
Part 2 Ep 13/13

High Definition programme
Saturday 27 June
6.45-7.30pm BBC ONE
Robin (Jonas Armstrong) tries boost everybody’s spirits
Robin (Jonas Armstrong) tries to boost everybody’s spirits

The real Sheriff of Nottingham is back from the dead and, what's more, he has amassed a formidable professional fighting force outside of Nottingham Castle, where Robin Hood and his allies are holed up, in the concluding episode of the medieval drama.

Tension is high and the Sheriff is gloating and spoiling for a fight. His army has sophisticated, fearsome weaponry and it's aimed at those sheltering inside the castle walls. The Sheriff wants his town back, and now.

Robin tries to keep spirits up and shouts commands in the castle – every able-bodied person must fight once the battle begins. Devious and deadly Isabella, meanwhile, remains locked in the dungeon. Still reeling from the death of Allan, Robin and Gisborne ride out to meet their nemesis face to face.

The Sheriff tells Robin that if he gives Gisborne and Isabella to him, he may spare the bloodshed. The Sheriff goads Robin with the sheer terrifying scale of his new army, which he promises will squash Robin's outnumbered motley crew.

Robin and Gisborne are not intimated and turn and ride, side by side, back into Nottingham Castle, as the Sheriff catapults a fireball into the castle forecourt. It explodes and there are casualties. Archer, who has been inspired to join Robin Hood's side, recognises the weapon as a Byzantine fireball which he's responsible for bringing back from the Orient.

Tuck, meanwhile, shows a surprising knowledge of such substances for a man of the cloth. Both men realise it causes destruction on a scale hitherto unknown – it's deadly and repels water like oil and now it's in the hands of The Sheriff.

Will the fight for England and King Richard end in tragedy?

The Sheriff of Nottingham is played by Keith Allen, Robin Hood by Jonas Armstrong, Gisborne by Richard Armitage, Isabella Gisborne by Lara Pulver, Archer by Clive Standen and Tuck by David Harewood.

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

Casualty

Saturday 27 June
8.40-9.30pm BBC ONE

At Jordan's flat, Zoe is excited about Rome, in this week's episode of the medical drama. But Jordan isn't feeling well and has a headache and is also distracted when a letter from his neurologist arrives.

Later, while examining a patient, Jordan begins to have a seizure and Charlie calls a shocked Zoe to help. She tries to deal with Jordan in a professional manner, but finds it difficult to stop her emotions rising as the staff speculate as to what has caused his sudden collapse.

In his bedroom, meanwhile, Jay tenderly watches Ruth sleeping. As he takes a shower, however, Ruth wakes up, panics and rushes out – leaving Jay his payment for the previous evening's "date". As a half-naked Jay chases after Ruth, he is locked out of his house and has to be rescued by Jeff and Dixie.

Elsewhere, Adam is in the Emergency Department when Jessica arrives with Harry – the plan to reel in Sean has worked. Sean calls and has a ticket for Jessica to fly out to Saudi with Harry. Adam is horrified that Jessica would even consider going to Saudi, given that she has no legal rights there. But Jessica is desperate to see her children.

Jordan is played by Michael French, Zoe by Sunetra Sarker, Charlie by Derek Thompson, Jay by Ben Turner, Ruth by Georgia Taylor, Jeff by Matt Bardock, Dixie by Jane Hazlegrove, Adam by Tristan Gemmill and Jessica by Gillian Kearney.
