The Old Guys

9.30-10.00pm BBC ONE

Sally (Jane Asher) moves in with Tom (Roger Lloyd Pack, left) and Roy (Clive Swift)
Sally (Jane Asher) moves in with Tom (Roger Lloyd Pack, left) and Roy (Clive Swift)

Tom and Roy find themselves with a new lodger, Sally, when a burst pipe forces her to get the builders in. The rivalry between Tom and Roy escalates a level, as the comedy series about two elderly delinquents continues.

Rajan sees an opportunity to step in and take Sally on a few "dates", a term fiercely disputed by Tom.

The old guys' lazy afternoon nap is cut short when Sally interrupts in her dressing gown; a burst water pipe has ruined her bathroom, could she trouble them to finish her shower in their bathroom? Tom and Roy readily agree, thrilled finally that Sally is in their house and, more excitingly, naked! It's a dream come true.

Sally's insurers agree to send the builders in which leaves her with another favour to ask of the guys – to move into their house on a temporary basis until the work is complete: a week at most. In preparation for Sally's arrival, Tom and Roy send themselves into a frenzy of pillow fluffing and scented candle placing in a bid to make everything perfect for the arrival of their new lodger.

Things go into overdrive as Tom and Roy fall over each other to impress Sally and can't do enough to please her, which in turn brings them to the decision that they can't let her go at the end of the week, and the two hatch a plan to delay the builder and extend Sally's stay.

All is going well but Tom and Roy's best behaviour to impress their guest is short-lived. While Sally goes along with the heavy breakfasts and high teas, she struggles to cope with the formality and constant mealtimes, so decides to accept Rajan's offers of trips away from the house.

Finally, in a bid to get the bathroom finished and Sally back into her own house, Tom and Roy decide enough is enough and finish it off themselves.

Tom is played by Roger Lloyd Pack, Roy by Clive Swift and Sally by Jane Asher.

Prom 18

Live event/outside broadcast
Friday 30 July

Ekaterina Gubanova sings Mahler
Ekaterina Gubanova sings Mahler

Suzy Klein hosts BBC Four's coverage of the 18th Prom from the Albert Hall, featuring the return of the Australian Youth Orchestra with music by Brett Dean, songs by Mahler with Ekaterina Gubanova as soloist, and Shostakovich's powerful 10th Symphony.

Youth orchestras have played an important part in the Proms for many years and the first of this year's visitors has travelled the furthest. The Australian Youth Orchestra brings with it music by its compatriot Brett Dean (who is also a former viola player in the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra) and by Shostakovich. His powerful 10th Symphony includes coded references both to his own love for a young woman and also to the brutality of Joseph Stalin, who died in the year the symphony was composed.

The orchestra and conductor Sir Mark Elder are also joined by young Russian mezzo-soprano Ekaterina Gubanova for some of Mahler's songs – settings of poems from the folk-based collection Des knaben wunderhorn (The Youth's Magic Horn).

The London première of Brett Dean's Amphitheatre and Mahler's Des Knaben Wunderhorn can be heard before the interval, followed by Shostakovich's Symphony No. 10 in E minor.

More spaced out comedy with Rufus (Rufus Hound, right) and Doctor Mu (Colin McFarlane)

Funlab presenter Rufus Hound finds himself in a battle royal this week, as he shrinks himself to the size of a bacteria and enters the body of Queen Gertrude to try to thwart Dr Mu's latest hare-brained scheme to control the multiverse.

Confusion reigns on Earth as Queen Gertrude of Genovia sacks her cabinet, invites all the world's leaders to attend a conference at her palace and starts behaving very strangely. It soon emerges that Dr Mu has transported himself into her body and is now controlling her!

Rufus, who has sneaked on-board Mu Force One and overheard the doctor's plan, decides to go after him. Once inside the Queen's body, he teams up with a pair of Royal brain-cells who have been evicted from the Royal brain by Dr Mu. Together they set off on an incredible journey around the Queen's body. But when the Queen's yappy little dog arrives in the palace, things don't go quite according to plan...

Rufus is played by Rufus Hound, Doctor Muhahahaha by Colin McFarlane, Gill/Gelina by Eva Alexander and Barry/Buck by Colin Ryan. Julia Deakin (Spaced, Hot Fuzz) guest stars as Queen Gertrude.

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.
