Eddie Jordan, Jake Humphrey and David Coulthard are in Interlagos for the Brazilian Grand Prix

Jake Humphrey presents live coverage of the Brazilian Grand Prix, from Interlagos, the penultimate race in this year's Formula 1 Championship.

It's been an unbelievably dramatic year so far – both on the track and in the paddock – and the challenging Interlagos circuit usually throws up plenty of excitement.

That was certainly the case last year when Lewis Hamilton's title hopes looked to be in tatters for the second year running, until the young Briton overtook on the final corner to grab fifth place and earn the points he needed to be crowned champion ahead of local hero Felipe Massa.

Joining Jake are F1 experts Eddie Jordan and David Coulthard, who won the Brazilian Grand Prix in 2001.

Casualty

Sunday 18 October
8.10-9.00pm BBC ONE

Love is all around in this week's episode of Casualty as one relationship gets decidedly rocky while another steps up a gear.

It's Ruth's birthday and Jay presents her with a necklace for their date at the surgeon's dinner. Ruth's happiness is short-lived when senior medic Sarah Evans warns her that Jay is bad news and that she'll think twice about recommending her for the surgical training post if she continues to see him.

Feeling unwell, Ruth cancels the date, but is confronted by Jay at the dinner. As Ruth leaves in embarrassment, she collapses, haemorrhaging.

Meanwhile, Adam has his hands full with the F2s. He won't allow them to treat patients unsupervised, but when Jessica and the F2s become trapped in resus by a distraught relative, Adam is forced to watch as they save a patient's life. Realising he must trust them more, Adam admits they did some good work. He thanks Jessica for her support and proposes they set a date for their wedding – New Year's Eve.

Ruth is played by Georgia Taylor, Jay by Ben Turner, Adam by Tristan Gemmill and Jessica by Gillian Kearney.

Emma (Romola Garai) teases Mr Knightley
Emma (Romola Garai) teases Mr Knightley

Emma teases Mr Knightley about Jane Fairfax but he remains tight-lipped, in the penultimate episode of BBC One's new adaptation of Jane Austen's classic novel.

Frank and Emma, meanwhile, plan a ball and Emma wonders whether she might be in love with him. Despite having a wonderful time at the ball, she decides otherwise.

With her match-making efforts officially abandoned, Emma feels cooped up and bored. Mr Knightley suggests a day trip to Box Hill for a change of scene and some temporary escape, and also tells Emma that he suspects Frank and Jane may secretly be in love. Emma rebuffs the suggestion – she can personally vouch for Frank's indifference to Jane – which leaves Knightley feeling hurt at Emma's indifference towards him.

Emma is played by Romola Garai, Mr Knightley by Jonny Lee Miller, Jane by Laura Pyper and Frank by Rupert Evans.

Last Chance To See – Blue Whales Ep 6/6

Sunday 18 October
8.00-9.00pm BBC TWO

Stephen Fry searches for the largest animal on Earth this week, as he concludes his quest to look for endangered species.

For something that's the size of a Boeing 737, a blue whale is extremely difficult to spot – since the turn of the last century, 99 per cent of their numbers have been lost to whalers.

Stephen, however, is accompanied by zoologist Mark Carwardine, an acknowledged whale and dolphin expert who knows the best place to look to find this threatened species.

Stephen starts his whale class with the more numerous, and incredibly friendly, grey whale, before moving on to the humpback, whose astonishing song he gets to hear at first hand.

But before he can claim the "holy grail" of whale watching, Stephen has to deal with the diablo rocco – a particularly prolific squid predator which is threatening to upset the natural balance of the entire Pacific coast.

Harper's Island – Gasp Ep 12/13

High Definition programme
Sunday 18 October
9.00-9.40pm BBC THREE

Wakefield is in the woods stalking those trying to find him, in the penultimate episode of the American drama. He creeps up behind Danny but, before the killer can strike, Sully emerges from hiding and shoots Wakefield, wounding him.

Abby and Henry hear the shot and rush to the scene but, instead of finishing Wakefield off, Abby knocks him out with her shotgun instead.

Trish wakes up alone in the car. Jimmy and her shotgun are missing, but he hurries back to tell her he's spotted a freighter from The Bluffs and grabs some signal flares from the trunk. When the two reach the cliff top, there's no sign of the ship. As Trish steps dangerously close to the edge, Jimmy lurks behind her.

Wakefield, meanwhile, is bound and locked in the Sheriff's station cell and later wakes up demanding to talk to Abby.

Jimmy arrives at the Sheriff's station saying that Trish fell off The Bluffs and needs help. A suspicious Henry, takes away Jimmy's shotgun and accuses him of pushing her, but Jimmy protests his innocence. Abby, Henry and Sully take Jimmy to the cliff top to find out if he is telling the truth and discover a remote boat house with a working radio. The group manage to contact the coastguard and are told help will arrive in a few hours.

Back at the station, Madison tells Shea and Danny that someone brought her and Wakefield food while she was in the tunnels, but she didn't see who it was. It seems Wakefield has an accomplice among the group, and he is soon on the loose again.

Danny is played by Brandon Jay, Abby by Elaine Cassidy, Henry by Christopher Gorham, Trish by Katie Cassidy, Jimmy by CJ Thomson, Sully by Matt Barr, Madison by Cassandra Sawtell and Shea by Gina Holden.

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

The nightmare is far from over for Abby (Elaine Cassidy)
The nightmare is far from over for Abby (Elaine Cassidy)

Events of 16 years earlier have their part to play in the confessions and revelations that emerge as the American drama reaches its conclusion.

Shea and Madison arrive at the boat house and tell Sully that Wakefield is on the loose. Sully spots a rowing boat and, as the coastguard hasn't yet arrived, he sends Shea and Madison off to meet the rescuers halfway.

Henry, meanwhile, meets up with Sully at the boat house, where they are told by radio to rendezvous at the marina. The two leave to find Trish and the others, but Abby and Jimmy make a grisly discovery in the meantime...

At the church, a confrontation with Wakefield ends with the interior catching fire and more than one person wounded. The survivors, meanwhile, head for the marina when it becomes clear that someone's version of events does not add up.

On the mainland, a day or so later, an FBI investigator tells Shea that evidence reveals everyone she left behind died in the church fire, including Wakefield. Aside from a few locals, Shea and Madison are the only survivors.

Back on Harper's Island, Abby awakes in the bedroom of a remote house and it becomes clear that the story is still not over ...

Shea is played by Gina Holden, Madison by Cassandra Sawtell, Sully by Matt Barr, Henry by Christopher Gorham, Trish by Katie Cassidy and Jimmy by CJ Thomson.

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