2010 FIFA WORLD CUP
Match Of The Day Live – World Cup Quarter-Finals

Live event/outside broadcastHigh Definition programme
Friday 2 July
2.30-5.15pm BBC ONE and BBC HD

Gary Lineker introduces live coverage of the first 2010 World Cup quarter-final from the 94,000 capacity Soccer City Stadium in Johannesburg.

The next match scheduled to take place at the impressive venue will be the actual final itself in nine days' time. It's therefore an ideal dress rehearsal for the two countries involved in this last eight fixture to familiarise themselves with the surroundings should they return for 2010 World Cup Final. Extra time and penalty kicks will be taken if necessary to find a winner.

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.

Friday 2 July
12.30-3.25pm 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 hosts live coverage from Wimbledon, where the men's singles semi-finals are taking place.

British fans will be hoping Andy Murray is still in contention and that the Scot can go a step further than last year, when he lost in four sets against an inspired Andy Roddick. Meanwhile, Roger Federer has reached the last seven men's singles finals at the All England Club and it will be a big surprise if he is not among the four men battling it out today.

Last year was the first time in six years that the top two seeds did not reach the men's singles final at Wimbledon – will the seedings be justified again this year or will the formbook be upset?

The day's coverage begins as usual at 10.30am on BBC Two with John Inverdale's one-hour round-up of all yesterday's action and important talking points in Yesterday At Wimbledon. At the other end of the day, John returns to BBC Two between 8pm and 9pm to review the best of today's action, results and reaction in Today At Wimbledon, as the 2010 Championships reach the business end.

Wimbledon 2010 is simulcast on the BBC HD channel – the BBC's High Definition channel, available through Freesat 108, Freeview 50, Sky 143 and Virgin 108.

Forever Young – How Rock 'n' Roll Grew Up

Friday 2 July
9.30-10.30pm BBC FOUR

Who could have predicted it? The Who in their sixties, singing "Hope I die before I get old" to enthusiastic audiences spanning generations; Mick Jagger, with seven years already on his bus pass, snaking across the stage singing "Let's spend the night together"; or a topless, leathery Iggy Pop growling "Last year I was 21", before climbing the speaker stacks for a bit of mock fornication. Scenes that are at once incredibly odd, but undeniably powerful and inspiring.

Forever Young takes a closer look at how rock 'n' roll has had to deal with the unthinkable – namely growing up and growing old. From its roots in the Fifites as a music made by young people for young people, to the 21st-century phenomena of the "revival" and the "comeback", the programme investigates what happens when the music refuses to die and its performers refuse to leave the stage. What happens when rock's youthful rebelliousness is delivered wrapped in wrinkles?

Narrated by Cherie Lunghi, this one-off documentary travels back to the birth of the teenager, when rock 'n' roll wasn't taken seriously – it was disposable, just like the people who made it. Moving seamlessly through the decades, the programme shows how the genre attempted to grow up but how it was held back and only allowed to age with events such as Live Aid in 1985, which made it possible for older acts to return to the stage. Suddenly it wasn't "uncool" to be 40 any more. Younger audiences began to discover classic acts of the Sixties and Seventies, alongside their parents who – like their heroes on stage – didn't seem to care about growing old gracefully ... or disgracefully.

Forever Young arrives in the present at a time when performers such as Lemmy have never been more popular. Despite the mantra of "live fast, die young", Britain's first rock 'n' roll generations are now enjoying old age. What was about youth and taking risks is now about longevity, survival and nostalgia – and refusing to grow up, give up or shut up.

Contributors include Iggy Pop, Rick Wakeman, Richard Thompson, Suggs, Joe Brown, Alison Moyet, Rosie Boycott, Bruce Welsh and Joe Boyd.

Hounded – Look At The Stars Ep 4/13

High Definition programme
Friday 2 July
5.15-5.45pm CBBC and BBC HD

EastEnders' Nitin Ganatra goes galactic as he guest stars as evil supervillain Dr Wu in the latest instalment of the space-based comedy.

When his school friend Dr Wu dares him to steal as many stars as possible, Dr Muhahahaha just can't resist. Desperate to impress his old arch enemy, there's one particular star Dr Mu wants more than any other – our Sun.

So the evil doctor creates a giant, intergalactic wormhole to suck the Sun right out of space, which immediately causes havoc with the weather on Earth.

Meanwhile, Rufus has beamed aboard the spaceship Solar I and, along with the crew, a space-tastic Gill and Barry, is forced to trust a homemade Wormhole Warp Capacitor called Bob to help him save the Earth. Dr Muhahahaha has other ideas and the whole crew is beamed aboard his ship, where they face death by the smell of a thousand Brussels sprouts.

Can TV presenter Rufus Hound save the world from an icy fate? And how on Earth is a tin of cat food from his Future Self ever going to help anybody?

Dr Wu is played by Nitin Ganatra, Doctor Muhahahaha by Colin McFarlane, Rufus by Rufus Hound, Gill/Gelina by Eva Alexander and Barry/Buck by Colin Ryan.

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