Eurovision – Your Country Needs You

Live event/outside broadcast
Friday 12 March
8.30-10.00pm BBC ONE

The call has gone out once again to keep national pride flying at Eurovision – with legendary hit-maker Pete Waterman taking on the iconic competition this year.

Eurovision – Your Country Needs You, with host Graham Norton, returns as a live musical spectacular with six brand-new acts competing to represent the UK at the Eurovision Song Contest in Oslo.

All six hopefuls will sing live in the studio before a specially selected panel, before being whittled down to the final three. These three acts will then perform their own version of Pete Waterman's creation before the voting lines open and the public decide who will appear in the all-important final in May.

Reliving the Eurovision experience is Jade Ewen, now part of the Sugababes and singing their latest single. Last year, Jade helped to restore the UK's national pride when she performed Andrew Lloyd Webber and Diane Warren's song It's My Time in Moscow – coming a respectable fifth in the proceedings.

Also, Scandinavian superstar Alexander Rybak sings Fairytale, the song that brought Norway Eurovision glory last year; there's a dip into the Euro archive vault; and news about other entries from all around Europe.

BBC TWO Friday 12 March 2010

Mastercrafts – Weaving Ep 5/6

Friday 12 March
9.00-10.00pm BBC TWO

The colourful world of the handloom weaver is explored in the final episode of Monty Don's Mastercrafts.

Fashion designer Holly Berry, 26; ex-city business analyst Tref Davies, 35; and craft writer Momtaz Begum-Hossain, 28, head to the Sussex countryside to embark on an intensive introduction to this most complicated but ultimately satisfying of crafts.

The Romans introduced hand looms to Britain 2,000 years ago and, by the 15th century, British weaving was some of the most accomplished in Europe. The industrial revolution and the invention of power looms turned the cottage weaving industry into a global market.

Nowadays, there are fewer than 200 people in the UK making a career from hand weaving; the group's mentor, Margo Selby, is one of them. With 13 years experience behind her, her central London studio supplies internationally to top boutiques and prestigious department stores.

While the trainees grapple with winding warps, setting looms, threading headles and handling shuttles, Monty explores the importance of hand weaving in history, visiting Hampton Court to experience the finest examples of hand-woven tapestries in existence.

The trainees are immersed in the world of weaving, attempting to sell their woven wares to the general public and, finally, putting all they've learned into practice. They are asked to both design and weave three-metre lengths of fabric to be judged by Michelle Bowen from the Arts Council and Angela Swan from the worshipful company of weavers.

The Bubble Ep 4/6

Friday 12 March
10.00-10.30pm BBC TWO

Andy Hamilton, Marcus Brigstocke and Julia Hartley Brewer are this week's guests on the comedy quiz, attempting to identify the true stories from the fakes after three days locked away in a media-free zone.

Hosted by David Mitchell, the programme plays on the fact that some news stories are so hard to believe you'd think they'd been made up for a joke – and in this show some of them have. It's up to Andy, Marcus and Julia to identify the real stories. However, having been shut away in the bubble for four days, they're out of touch and willing to believe almost anything.

Simon Russell Beale journeys through the history of Western sacred music

Simon Russell Beale continues his journey through the history of Western sacred music in this second series for BBC Four, which looks at how religious music has continued to thrive despite the increasingly secular nature of society.

Actor and former chorister Simon first travels to Germany and Austria to explore the work of two musical giants, Brahms and Bruckner. With accompanying music performed by Harry Christophers and his choir The Sixteen, Simon discovers how Bruckner approached his sacred music as a devout Catholic, while Brahms found himself unable to believe in anything but his music.

Simon undertakes a journey that starts in northern Germany and finishes in the Austrian capital, Vienna, where both composers eventually settled.
