He has created over 20 charities and six social enterprises aimed at topics as diverse as promoting youth opportunity, encouraging corporate social responsibility and protecting the natural environment.

In this keynote lecture he will set out some of the serious challenges which the world now faces and explore how some of these issues could be tackled in the years ahead.

Terror! Robespierre And The French Revolution

Unplaced
Day and time to be confirmed BBC TWO

In 1794, French revolutionary Maximilien Robespierre produced the world's first defence of State Terror – claiming that the road to virtue lay through political violence.

This film combines drama, archive and documentary interviews to examine Robespierre's year in charge of the Committee Of Public Safety – the powerful state machine at the heart of Revolutionary France.

Contesting Robespierre's legacy is Slavoj Zizek, who argues that terror in the cause of virtue is justifiable, and Simon Schama, who believes the road from Robespierre ran straight to the gulag and the 20th-century concentration camp.

The drama, based on original sources, follows the life-and-death politics of the Committee during "Year Two" of the new Republic. It was a year which gave birth to key features of modern age: the thought crime; the belief that calculated acts of violence can perfect humanity; the notion that the interests of "mankind" can be placed above those of "man"; the use of policemen to enforce morals; and the use of denunciation as a political tool.

Martin Jarvis plays senior foreign correspondent David Bradburn in Taking The Flak

A small African war suddenly becomes the centre of global attention when a team of BBC journalists arrives in Karibu, ready to cover the conflict, as this new comedy drama starring Martin Jarvis begins.

Local "stringer" Harry (Bruce Mackinnon) is hanging on to the bottom of the journalist ladder and thinks the story will be his big break. But he finds himself "bigfooted" when BBC News heavyweights, including senior foreign correspondent David Bradburn (Martin Jarvis), flanked by his production team, and Margaret Hollis (Joanna Brookes) from the World Service, arrive in town.

Football-mad boy soldiers, corrupt car dealers, intestinal discomfort, unexploded landmines, old flames, impromptu hostage situations, YouTube viral videos and colossal egos all combust under the African sun. There is a story to be told in Karibu – but who will get to tell it?

Bruce Mackinnon plays Harry Chambers, Martin Jarvis plays David Bradburn and Joanna Brookes plays Margaret Hollis. Taking The Flak also stars Doon Mackichan as Jane Thomason, Kobna Holdbrook-Smith as Joyful Sifuri and Lloyd Owen as Jack. Mackenzie Crook guest stars as Nigel Bagwell, with Bill Turnbull, Sian Williams and George Alagiah as themselves.

Sue Barker presents live coverage of the women’s singles final at Wimbledon

Sue Barker presents live coverage of the 2009 women's singles final from the famous Centre Court at Wimbledon, which has witnessed some classic finals in the past.

Twenty five years ago, Martina Navratilova once again saw off her great rival, Chris Evert, to take the title, while 10 years ago, Steffi Graf's last appearance in a Wimbledon final ended in defeat to Lindsay Davenport of the USA. Since then, the title has been dominated by American winners, with eight of the last 10 champions hailing from across the Atlantic. Last year, it was Venus Williams who lifted the famous Venus Rosewater dish for a fifth time – following a straight-sets victory against her sister, Serena.

Coverage continues on BBC Two with the men's and women's doubles finals. Last year's men's final saw Daniel Nestor and Nenad Zimonjic win their first Grand Slam title, with Zimonjic playing through the pain barrier after breaking a bone in his wrist. The programme also features interviews and reaction from the women's singles final.

At 10.30pm on BBC Two, John Inverdale is joined in the studio by former champions who offer their views on the day's events in Today At Wimbledon.

Viewers can catch up with yesterday's men's semi-final matches in Yesterday At Wimbledon on BBC Two at 6am.

Sunday 5 July

5.30-8.00pm BBC TWO

Sue Barker hosts live coverage from this year's men's singles final at Wimbledon.

The Centre Court crowd will be hoping that the final matches the excitement of last year's epic clash between Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer, which produced almost five hours of incredible tennis. Nadal's win denied Federer a sixth consecutive title in SW19 but the Swiss superstar will be on a high after his recent victory at the French Open. This year's men's final will be the first since the introduction of a retractable roof, meaning there is no chance of rain interrupting the action.

Coverage continues at 5.30pm on BBC Two with the mixed doubles final, and also reaction to the men's singles final. Last year's mixed doubles final saw unseeded duo Bob Bryan and Samantha Stosur claim the title against Mike Bryan, Bob's brother, and Katerina Srebotnik.

John Inverdale presents highlights from today's play at 11pm on BBC Two in Today At Wimbledon. He is joined in the studio by former champions who offer their views on the day's events.

It's the day of Ann Marie and Gil's wedding but Sadie, the bride's mother, is going to miss the celebrations, as the quirky Sunday night drama continues. Sadie is a prisoner in her bedroom having discovered that Ellie, Hannah, Shoo and Josie are ex-cons on the run. Convinced they might have dubious plans for her, Sadie decides to escape.

Meanwhile, with the kiss with Ellie still playing heavily on his mind, would-be groom Gil has second thoughts about his impending marriage to Ann Marie. But when he confronts Ellie about her feelings she brushes him off, downplaying its significance.

Annoyed at her seemingly fickle actions, Ellie takes out her frustrations on Shoo, lambasting her for having a relationship with Dean. She warns her lovesick friend that a boyfriend in Hope Springs will only lead to heartache.

Elsewhere, Euan smugly reveals to his anxious son, Ronan, his plans to manipulate Gil for information about Billy's SIM card. And with Sadie apparently on holiday in Australia, Euan also aims to persuade Ellie to sell the hotel to him. Controlling Euan thinks he's got it all sussed, but Ronan is a troubled soul on the edge.

A sense of foreboding continues to haunt Gil but he's a man of principles and won't let Ann Marie down. However, the celebrations threaten to be short-lived after Ellie overhears Euan and Ann Marie secretly argue over the paternity of her unborn baby.

Despite Ellie's warning, Shoo announces her surprise engagement to Dean. Her pals are less than impressed but Shoo's love life is soon the least of the women's concerns as an uninvited guest, hitman Marius, turns up at the Hope Springs Hotel...

Anne Marie is played by Ronni Ancona, Gil by Paul Higgins, Sadie by Annette Crosbie, Ellie by Alex Kingston, Hannah by Sian Reeves, Shoo by Christine Bottomley, Josie by Vinette Robinson, Dean by Richard Madden, Euan by Alec Newman, Ronan by Tony McGeever and Marius by Clint Dyer.

Then the bombshell: Jonny has to pull out because of a work contract. Ben and James are left high and dry, with only months until the race start. With a frantic effort they hold a nationwide search for a new third team member, finally selecting Dr Ed Coats, a young and enthusiastic ex-decathlete.

The Supersizers Eat ... The French Revolution Ep 4/6

Monday 6 July
9.00-10.00pm BBC TWO

In a remarkable adventure stuffed full of culinary and visual treats, Giles Coren and Sue Perkins journey to revolutionary France. With Sue's waist cinched in by a corset, and a curly wig astride Giles's head, the Supersizers experience the lives of Marie-Antoinette and King Louis XVI.

Resplendent in their sprawling home, Vaux-le-Vicomte – the inspiration for Versailles – Giles and Sue devour a 5,000-calorie breakfast feast of lamb cutlets, roast capon, eggs in orange flower water, a leg of ham and three bottles of champagne prepared by famed French chef Mickael Weiss.

Giles tries the exotic new vegetable craze, the potato, and Sue samples the simple broth that formed Marie Antoinette's last meal prior to her guillotine execution. But as the Revolution breaks out, the pair follow in the footsteps of the King and Queen and flee Paris in a horse-drawn carriage.

The Supersizers also observe the advent of the restaurant – with no aristocracy to cook for, chefs fled the deserted palaces and chateaux in order to set up establishments in which to feed the new egalitarian France. Giles and Sue end the week honouring this new creation with a meal created by the world's first restaurant critic, Grimod de la Reyniere.

Clash Ep 1/6

New series
Tuesday 7 July
4.35-5.00pm BBC ONE

Classical music meets pop head-on in Clash, a new CBBC series in which BBC Radio 1 DJs Bobby Friction and Nihal swap bhangra for Beethoven as they join forces with musically talented children in a head-to-head contest to turn two well-known classical pieces into pop tracks.

The two teams of five children, led up by Bobby and Nihal, must deconstruct and re-work a classical piece, mixing musical styles and blending beats, before being pitted against each other in the grand finale at the end of the series, in which they play their new, mashed-up musical piece live at a leading music festival. Singers, drummers, a beat boxer, an oboist, a cellist, a Scottish harpist, a pianist and a busker are among those featured in the musical line-up.

Providing help along the way are two musical mentors – cellist, composer and conductor Jason Lai, last seen mentoring Sue Perkins to victory in BBC Two's Maestro, helps Nihal's team, while Tim Steiner, composer and creative director for BBC One's I'd Do Anything, leads Bobby's side.

Each week the teams face a fun music challenge with The Noisettes, Lesley Garrett and Stomp among the famous names from the world of classical and popular music aiming to help the children achieve their goals.

In today's opening episode, the contestants get to meet each other and their team leaders and face the daunting task of having to choose which of three classical pieces they will revamp. Having chosen their pieces, one orchestral and the other choral, they see them performed live for the first time.

They then take a quick march to meet the band of the Scots Guards for their first challenge – reversioning Beggin', by Mad Con, and Goodbye Mr A, by The Hoosiers, into suitable pieces of music for the Scots Guards to perform in front of a discerning audience of brass-band-loving pensioners, who will vote for their favourite.

Midge (Annabel Scholey) thinks she’s uncovered Adam’s true identity

It's the day of the Hartmann Payne birthday bash but Midge, Nicole, Lucy and Sid aren't in a celebratory mood, as the off-beat office drama continues. Their hunt for Grace takes them ever-closer to the truth as danger calls.

Troubled by her hidden past, Midge confides in Avi about her daughter, Talya, but is annoyed by his judgemental response. Anxious to make amends, Midge goes to Talya's house to try to speak to her adoptive mother, Esther, but unexpectedly meets the little girl herself.

Lucy, meanwhile, announces to her friends that she has split up with Bob, much to the horror of Nicole, who knows their secret affair was nothing more than a meaningless liaison. But while one relationship appears over, another seems to be blossoming with Rock and Sid's spiritual union apparently written in the stars.

In an attempt to find out more about Grace's secret life, the girls trick Robbie into getting the mysterious Jeeves to visit, but he is less than impressed to have been summoned unnecessarily. Anxious about getting into trouble with his boss, Jane, Robbie is grateful when Nicole offers to handle the awkward client. But Nicole has revenge as an ulterior motive – Jeeves is her estranged father.

Nicole attempts to bribe Jeeves into revealing the truth about Adam Hartmann and the role he played in Grace's disappearance. But the usually self-assured and confident PA is unprepared for the impact her father's home truths have on her.

Annoyed by the girls' set-up, Robbie hints that he knows some secrets about Grace's love life. But while the others sneer at the suggestion, Nicole has her doubts and sets about searching his desk for evidence.

Elsewhere, Simon bribes his client, record producer Andy Young, to listen to Midge sing and pretend she's got talent. But his plan backfires and it looks as though Simon might lose Midge forever.

In a shocking turn of events, Midge thinks she's uncovered Adam Hartmann's true identity and the PAs' futures hang in the balance when a vengeful figure from their past returns.

Midge is played by Annabel Scholey, Nicole by Maimie McCoy, Lucy by Laura Aikman, Sid by Ruth Negga, Avi by Kieran Bew, Talya by Romy Irving, Esther by Pauline Knowles, Rock by Robert Gant, Robbie by Jamie Davis, Jeeves by Adrian Lukis, Jane by Archie Panjabi, Simon by Darren Boyd and Andy Young by Paul Kaye.

De Li thinks playing the game is difficult, so each Pipling shows her the special ways they use to kick the pod through the posts. But each time she tries it goes wrong.

When the Cheebies arrive they give her a "lucky pebble" to help her kick the pod. De Li is happy when it works but just as she is about to do her final kick, she waves at the Cheebies and loses the pebble. A Cheebie explains that De Li doesn't need it – if she has kicked the pod once she can do it again. Sure enough, De Li kicks the ball through the posts all by herself.

The Culture Show Ep 1/8

New series
Wednesday 8 July
7.00-7.50pm BBC TWO (Copy updated 25 June)

Extended to 50 minutes and in a new slot, The Culture Show starts a new summer run with a programme from Albert Square, the heart of the 2009 Manchester International Festival.

From 2 July, Manchester hosts 18 days of new work by some of the world's leading artists – with music, art and performance premières of every kind.

Tonight's programme goes behind the scenes with artist Jeremy Deller as he gets the festival off to a bang on Sunday 5 July. Famous for recreating the Battle of Orgreave and for fusing acid house with brass-band culture, Deller has been at work for months on a massive procession in Deansgate. Thousands are expected to take part in this one-off event combining art, music and protest politics.

There's also a profile of the Young At Heart Choir. Made up of singers in their seventies and eighties, the choir made its name with their unique take on songs by The Clash and James Brown. The Culture Show caught up with them rehearsing a new show for the Manchester Festival – End Of The Road – based around iconic Manchester songs.

Lauren Laverne talks to Guy Garvey whose band, Elbow, is working with the original Manchester band, the Halle Orchestra, at the Bridgewater Hall.

There's also a chance for viewers to see a rare TV interview with Ralf Hϋtter, founder member of reclusive German electronic pioneers Kraftwerk, and stars of a one-off concert at the Manchester Velodrome.

Also in the programme, Carlos Acosta prepares to perform new work at the festival, exploring the idea of the male muse in ballet. His programme includes work by Balanchine's classic Apollo and Robbins's A Suite of Dances.

A panel of cultural critics, meanwhile, discusses all these highlights from Manchester plus performance art from Marina Abramovic, and a new work by German artist Gustav Metzger.

Tonight's edition of The Culture Show can be seen again on Saturday 11 July.

McNulty (Dominic West) turns up at the wrong place

Responding to an officer's call for help, McNulty and Prez turn up at the wrong alley with unforeseen results, as the American crime drama continues.

Under orders, a Barksdale crew violates the long-standing, but unspoken, Sunday truce with gunplay that increases discontent among the New Day Co-op members.

Meanwhile, Proposition Joe goes to Vinson in an effort to broker a peace between Marlo and Avon, while a murder in Amsterdam presents new challenges and further divides the Western District troops and their allegiance to Colvin.

Councilman Gray tells Carcetti that he is running for mayor and offers him the council president's slot on his ticket.

McNulty is played by Dominic West, Prez by Jim True-Frost, Cutty by Chad L Coleman, Omar by Michael K Williams, Avon by Wood Harris, Stringer Bell by Idris Elba, Brianna by Michael Hyatt, Bubbles by Andre Royo, Pearlman by Deirdre Lovejoy, Daniels by Maria Broom, Proposition Joe by Robert F Chew, Vinson by Norris Davis, Marlo by Jamie Hector, Colvin by Robert Wisdom, Gray by Christopher Mann and Carcetti by Aidan Gillen.

GREY EXPECTATIONS
Grandparent Diaries Ep 1/3

New series
Wednesday 8 July
9.00-10.00pm BBC FOUR

A season of programmes dedicated to understanding life's twilight years begins on BBC Four.

Giving fresh insight into the matriarchs and patriarchs of family life, the season includes: Getting On, a comedy drama about life on a geriatric ward, starring Jo Brand; the trip of a lifetime in Liz Smith's Summer Cruise; observational documentaries about grandparents; and a behind-the-scenes look at an innovative old people's home.

The season begins with Grandparent Diaries, a series of three documentaries looking at the relationships between three very different sets of grandparents and their grandchildren.

The first film introduces North Londoner Ian Batten – fashion designer, father of four and grandfather of seven. In this warm, insightful film, Ian takes all of his seven grandchildren – ranging in age from toddler to teenaged – for a weekend by the sea, for the first time.

As a Sixties dad who brought up his own children up in the liberal spirit of the time, Ian's approach seems to be a hit with the children. But do Ian's own children recall their upbringings as similarly idyllic, and how has it influenced their own views on parenting?

Through interviews spanning three generations, the family's archive footage and observation, the film looks at how the philosophies of the Sixties influence Ian as a grandfather.

GREY EXPECTATIONS
Getting On

Wednesday 8 July
10.00-11.00pm BBC FOUR

The season of programmes dedicated to understanding life's twilight years continues on BBC Four as Jo Brand, Joanna Scanlan and Vicki Pepperdine star in this comedy of staff and patients "getting on" with it in an overlooked corner of the health service.

Devised, written and performed by the cast and directed by Peter Capaldi, Getting On takes its subject matter – the care of the elderly – and gets to the heart, the hips and the bowels of it.

Darkly funny, tough and compassionate, Getting On follows the daily lives of the medical team as they go about their routine tasks – where messy choices are the order of the day.

Welcome to Ward B4, a backwater in an NHS Trust Hospital. This is the world of slips, trips and hips – healthcare at its least glamorous. Sister Den Flixter, Nurse Kim Wilde and Doctor Pippa Moore assemble for their ward round as the daily grind begins. However, today is different. A new, male matron has just started work and an unsavoury sample and a deceased patient are causing problems.

Kim, who has just returned to nursing, looks to Den for help. However, Den has problems of her own.

Jo Brand plays Nurse Kim Wilde, Vicki Pepperdine plays Doctor Pippa Moore, Joanna Scanlan plays Sister Den Flixter and Ricky Grover plays Matron Hilary Loftus.

Horrible Histories Ep 13/13

Thursday 9 July
4.35-5.05pm BBC ONE

The critically acclaimed historical comedy series concludes this week in true Horrible Histories style, with a selection of sketches packed with gore and toilet humour.

Roman Kitchen Nightmares examines the culinary tastes of the Romans, including tantalising dishes such as sheep's lungs mixed with rotten fish, and the programme also explores the communal delights of Roman lavatoriums.

Meanwhile, guts and gore from Victorian times are detailed in a sketch about life in Crimean hospitals before the arrival of Florence Nightingale, and the macabre carryings on of body snatchers Burke and Hare – who murdered people to sell their bodies to the Edinburgh physician Knox for dissection – are regaled in song.

Rounding off the programme, the last Pharaoh of Egypt is revealed in This is Your Reign; and the ghost of Richard III returns to question Shakespeare's artistic license and lack of historical accuracy.

Horrible Histories boasts some of Britain's finest comedy talent, including writers Steve Punt, Jon Holmes, Ben Ward and Giles Pilbrow. The series stars Sarah Hadland, Jim Howick, Simon Farnaby, Martha Howe Douglas, Matthew Baynton and Ben Willbond. Meera Syal guest stars as the fairy-tale narrator and John Eccleston is the puppeteer for the Horrible Histories rat.

Finally, De Li tells Yojojo everyone needs to wait for the mango to become ripe. So they all wait until, eventually, the mango is ready to eat. Everyone eats a piece and it's "Waybuloo".

Deadly 60 Ep 7/13

Thursday 9 July
5.15-5.45pm CBBC

Steve Backshall embarks on some nocturnal adventures in the northern territories of Australia to seek out things that go bump in the night, and also to capture a TV first, in this week's episode of Deadly 60.

Steve begins his night-time encounters on a riverside excursion with a group of rangers to trap a large salt-water crocodile, which is the largest of all the crocodilian species. Nicknamed Mr Stinky, this crocodile's injuries have prevented him from hunting properly – leading him to seek scraps from the river-bank and get rather too close to the local fishermen. The team catch their culprit, but it is only when they get him back to shore that Steve is able to see the full magnitude of this huge prehistoric predator and the risk this mighty animal posed to the public.

Next up is a spine-chilling ghost hunt down an abandoned gold mine. In what is thought to be a television first, Steve and his team head deep into the bowels of the mine to capture the elusive ghost bat on film in the wild. Filming in the dark, surrounded by cockroaches and other creepy crawlies, the crew catch sight of the pale, spectre-like creatures. These incredible, white bats have translucent wings and huge fangs and are capable of causing harm to a wide range of prey, making them a prime candidate for Steve's Deadly 60 list.

When he and Tony decide to swap places for the day, mischief and mayhem ensues.
