Formula 1 – The Monaco Grand Prix

Live event/outside broadcast
Sunday 29 May
12.05-3.20pm BBC ONE

Live coverage comes from one of the most prestigious races in the Formula 1 calendar, the Monaco Grand Prix from Monte Carlo.

Britain's Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton have both won here but it was Red Bull's Mark Webber and Sebastian Vettel who dominated last year. All four are set to make it a fascinating battle this year.

Michael Schumacher will be hoping that memories of his five victories here help kick-start his season with Mercedes GP after a lacklustre opening to the campaign.

The programme is presented by Jake Humphrey, with commentary from Martin Brundle and David Coulthard – a two-time winner of this race.

Paul Rose goes in search of the conger eel

The team head to their last destination, the busy southern shores, and join an archaeological excavation of a mysterious 17th-century ship, in the final episode of the series exploring the secret world that lies beneath Britain's seas. Bearing incredibly ornate carvings of a merman, the wreck is revealed by Frank Pope to be one of the most important underwater discoveries since the Mary Rose.

Paul Rose sets out in search of the mighty conger eel to find out if, when he comes face to face with one, these incredible beasts will live up to their fearsome reputation. And Tooni Mahto discovers the wonders that lie beneath Brighton pier, whose steel legs have effectively created an artificial reef.

In a fascinating end to the series, Frank dives the wreck of an experimental Second World War submarine that went down in mysterious circumstances as the crew tried to launch the onboard biplane.

Louis Theroux at Miami's Mega-Jail

Louis Theroux concludes his exploration into Miami Mega-Jail, one of America's largest and most violent of prisons crammed with 6,000 inmates, and a holding pen for the un-convicted. Like a large number of those locked up in America, the inmates are awaiting trial, and that wait can last for years and years.

Tonight, Louis goes deeper into the jail system meeting an alleged triple murderer facing a possible death sentence. He also follows a group of 40 or so younger inmates who have escaped prison by pleading guilty and agreeing to attend a four-month military style boot camp. Among them is a 14-year-old boy facing a possible 10-year sentence for armed robbery if he can't survive the boot camp's relentless and brutal training and indoctrination programme. Many will drop out and receive prison sentences, but for a handful this will be their second chance at life.


Queen – Days Of Our Lives Ep 1/2

Sunday 29 May
10.00-11.00pm BBC TWO (Schedule addition 18 May)

In 1971, four university students got together to form the band Queen. Forty years later, they have released 26 albums and sold more than 300 million records worldwide.

The popularity of Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon is at an all-time high and this two-part BBC Two documentary explores the remarkable story of these individuals, against a backdrop of brilliant music, stunning live performances and extensive archive of unseen footage.

The documentary is the band's story in their own words – a compelling journey told with intelligence, wit, plenty of humour and painful honesty, against a backdrop of brilliant music, stunning live performances and extensive archive of unseen footage.

Part one follows the band’s early story, from their meeting at Imperial College, to their first albums struggling to chart and their stint on Top Of The Pops. It also recounts their wrangle with Trident and their feud with NME, as well as their rise to success during the Seventies, making them the world’s biggest band by 1980.

Part two can be seen tomorrow.
