Hazel Irvine previews the action from the 139th Open Championships from St Andrews and presents further live coverage of the tournament.

Known as "moving day", the third round is often one of the most dramatic rounds in major championships as the world's elite golfers take risks to establish themselves among the higher echelons of the leaderboard. With the shackles of the cut now removed, those left in the field will be pushing hard to fire low scores.

Coverage continues on BBC Two at 5.15pm.

Casualty – I Am Mine

Saturday 17 July
9.00-9.50pm BBC ONE (Schedule amendment 6 July)

Zoe continues to pull the wool over Jordan's eyes about her "pregnancy", Lenny and Yuki take the law into their own hands with worrying consequences and an old Casualty favourite returns to the Emergency Department in need of treatment, as the medical drama continues.

After lying to Jordan that she is pregnant, Zoe continues her fertility injections in a desperate attempt to conceive before he finds out. But after treating an assault victim she realises the destructive power of lies and breaks off her relationship with Jordan, without actually admitting the truth. Jordan won't be put off that easily; dismissing her outburst as hormones, he asks a very surprising question...

Meanwhile, Lenny is determined to find evidence of Robert and the Ludlow Foundation's complicity in the drugs trial cover-up and enlists a reluctant Yuki to help him break into Robert's house. Finding the evidence they need, the pair narrowly escape being caught but their actions cause a trail of destruction. Afterwards Yuki turns on Lenny, angry he cares more about the evidence than their friendship. Will Lenny get the evidence he needs to confront Jordan and can his friendship with Yuki withstand this test?

After having Shona arrested for theft, Charlie misses her trial; but the teenager thanks him for his intervention, and seems genuinely transformed. But later, Charlie is stunned to discover an old friend in resuscitation, just as she starts crashing...

Sunetra Sarker plays Zoe, with Michael French as Jordan, Steven Miller as Lenny, Will Strong as Yuki, Evelyn Hoskins as Shona and Derek Thompson as Charlie.

Hazel Irvine presents live coverage of the conclusion of the third round from St Andrews. Twelve months ago at Turnberry it was the evergreen Tom Watson who stole a march on his younger rivals to lead the championship by one shot at the end of the third round.

British duo Ross Fisher and Lee Westwood led the European charge; both ended the day with par rounds of 70 to sit among the top five. After Northern Irishman Graeme McDowell's recent US Open success, there are high hopes of a second successive European major victory.

OPERA ON THE BBC/
BBC PROMS 2010
Prom 2 – The Mastersingers Of Nuremberg

High Definition programme
Saturday 17 July
7.00pm-12.00midnight BBC FOUR and BBC HD
Bass-baritone Bryn Terfel sings the role of poet and shoemaker Hans Sachs in Wagner's opera
Bass-baritone Bryn Terfel sings the role of poet and shoemaker Hans Sachs in Wagner's opera

Stephen Fry introduces Welsh National Opera's new production of Wagner's The Mastersingers Of Nuremberg performed semi-staged for the BBC Proms at London's Royal Albert Hall. Celebrated bass-baritone Bryn Terfel makes his debut in the role of Hans Sachs, the shoemaker and poet at the heart of this monumental work – part comedy, part love story, part meditation on the transformative power of art.

In 16th-century Nuremberg, the Mastersingers are a highly influential guild of singers who meet for an annual singing competition – a challenge requiring a high level of technical expertise, and rewarded by a coveted prize. For the forthcoming competition, the goldsmith, Pogner, offers an extra prize – the hand in marriage of his daughter, Eva. Into the town comes a young knight, Walther, with no experience in the craft of singing, but he falls instantly in love with Eva. He performs a song for a chance to enter the competition, but is judged to be unworthy by the pedantic town clerk, Beckmesser, who is also keen to win Eva's hand. Hans Sachs is the only member of the establishment willing to listen to the newcomer and to give him a chance in his quest.

The cast also includes bass Brindley Sherratt as Pogner, soprano Amanda Roocroft as Eva, tenor Raymond Very as Walther and baritone Christopher Purves as Beckmesser. Lothar Koenigs conducts the Chorus and Orchestra of Welsh National Opera.

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