2010 FIFA WORLD CUP
Match Of The Day Live – Cameroon v Netherlands

Live event/outside broadcastHigh Definition programme
Thursday 24 June
7.00-10.00pm BBC ONE and BBC HD

Gary Lineker is in Johannesburg and introduces live coverage of the Group E encounter between the much-fancied Netherlands and Cameroon, who are one of six African sides represented at the World Cup.

Cameroon's best run in the competition came in 1990, when they reached the last eight and led 2-1 against England before Lineker scored twice from the penalty spot to deny them a place in the semi-finals. The Dutch are hoping to emulate their class of 1974, who became world champions and are still remembered for their fabulous brand of "total football".

Match Of The Day Live is simulcast on the BBC HD channel – the BBC's High Definition channel, available through Freesat 108, Freeview 50, Sky 143 and Virgin 108.

Wimbledon 2010

Live event/outside broadcastHigh Definition programme
Thursday 24 June
11.10am-3.25pm BBC TWO and BBC HD
1.45-6.00pm BBC ONE and BBC HD
5.50-8.00pm BBC TWO and BBC HD

Sue Barker is at Wimbledon to host coverage of the fourth day of this year's Championships.

Andy Murray is carrying the weight of British expectation and having reached the final of the Australian Open, hopes will be high of a repeat on the grass of SW19.

Today's coverage begins at 10.30am on BBC Two in Yesterday At Wimbledon, when John Inverdale presents an hour-long round-up of Wednesday's action.

From 1.40pm Sue presents an afternoon of coverage from Wimbledon on BBC One and BBC HD where the 2010 Championships are in full swing. The weather is always a factor during the fortnight. Thirty-two days have been completely rained off in the tournament's history – but that figure will not change thanks to the retractable roof that was installed over Centre Court last year.

From 5.50-8pm there's further coverage from Wimbledon on BBC Two and BBC HD. Former world No. 1 Justine Henin will be among the favourites in the women's competition. The Belgian has lost none of her sublime talent since coming out of retirement and the prospect of winning the only Grand Slam to elude her is sure to give her inspiration at the All England Club.

Finally, from 8-9pm in Today At Wimbledon on BBC Two John Inverdale and guests round up the day's action from the 2010 Championships at Wimbledon.

OPERA ON THE BBC
Gareth Malone Goes To Glyndebourne Ep 2/3

Thursday 24 June
9.00-10.00pm BBC TWO (Schedule addition 4 June)

Gareth Malone now has his chorus of 50 teens from across East Sussex, to sing on the main stage of one of the world's most prestigious opera houses, Glyndebourne, as the series continues.

To prepare them for their time at Glyndebourne Gareth takes his chorus to the Royal Opera House to see Puccini's La boheme. Many know absolutely nothing about opera – it's an inspiring experience. Gareth has only six weeks of music rehearsals to teach his chorus the music and get them singing to Glyndebourne's high standards. But the music is hard. Gareth begins individual tuition with 18-year-old Stefan, the one male reserve. Stefan is fully committed and Gareth wants to see him on stage at the end, but is his singing strong enough?

Two weeks in, rehearsals move onto the set. The chorus isn't ready, though, and they miss their cues. Worried his conducting may be to blame, Gareth has a lesson from Knight Crew conductor Nicholas Collon. Like Stefan, 15-year-old Kiya lacks confidence with her singing so Gareth gives her individual tuition. As the pressure increases the boys start to lose interest – they mess around, some skive and a few leave. Sixteen-year-old Korrel is one of the boys playing truant. Gareth tries to keep him on board as his attendance worsens.

As music rehearsals draw to a close, Stefan is given a place in the Knight Crew and Gareth takes his chorus to perform to Gus Christie, the owner of Glyndebourne, in the Organ Room of the old house.

2010 FIFA WORLD CUP
Match Of The Day Live – Denmark v Japan

Live event/outside broadcastHigh Definition programme
Thursday 24 June
7.00-9.30pm BBC THREE and BBC HD

Dan Walker introduces live coverage of the potentially decisive Group E match in Rustenburg, where Denmark and Japan will be hoping to secure a place in the knockout stage.

Japan appear in their fourth consecutive World Cup and reached the last 16 in 2002, when they co-hosted the tournament. They face a tough task in a group which also includes the Netherlands and Cameroon.

Japan are an increasingly strong football nation, while Denmark also know a thing or two about upsetting the odds. The Danes, who were crowned European champions in 1992, have been to three previous World Cups and made it past the group phase on each occasion.

Match Of The Day Live is simulcast on the BBC HD channel – the BBC's High Definition channel, available through Freesat 108, Freeview 50, Sky 143 and Virgin 108.
