Dhafer L'Abidine joins the cast as paramedic Omar

Gemma Atkinson swaps her high heels for a high-visibility jacket to join Dhafer L'Abidine (Sex In The City 2) as new paramedics Tamzin and Omar in Casualty – Partners.

Jeff and Dixie are cleaning their ambulance when new team members Omar and Tamzin arrive. Tamzin immediately gets off on the wrong foot when she accidentally breaks Jeff's beloved A-Team mug and Jeff's nose is put out of joint when Omar conspires to steal their "shout". But matters worsen when Jeff and Dixie are called out to a remote farmhouse, which appears to be inhabited by a drugs baron and a pack of ferocious dogs.

Meanwhile, Jordan tries to keep the ED working at full strength despite worrying that the symptoms of his brain tumour are returning.

Eva Pope and Paul Barber star as police officers with a very personal reason for investigating a drugs ring. This episode also stars Matt Bardock as Jeff, Jane Hazlegrove as Dixie and Michael French as Jordan.

Gary Lineker kicks off a new Premier League season in Match Of The Day

Gary Lineker presents highlights of today's seven Premier League games as the new season gets under way. Liverpool spent heavily during the summer and their new signings will be eager to impress against Sunderland, particularly Jordan Henderson, who could make his Reds debut against the club he left just two months ago. Fellow midfielder Stewart Downing, who joined from Aston Villa, could also play his first competitive game for Kenny Dalglish's side.

Arsenal take on Newcastle at St James' Park, scene of the Gunners' incredible collapse last season when they surrendered a four-goal lead to draw 4-4. QPR return to the top flight after a 15-year absence with Bolton providing the opposition at Loftus Road. Fellow new boys Norwich visit Wigan.

Martin Jol's first Premier League match as Fulham boss is against an Aston Villa side also under new management, with Alex McLeish taking over at Villa Park this summer. Elsewhere, Tottenham meet Everton and Blackburn host Wolves.

Prom 30 – The National Youth Orchestra

High Definition programme
Saturday 13 August
9.00-11.05pm BBC TWO and BBC HD

The National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain's annual visit to the BBC Proms features a repertoire selected by conductor Vladimir Jurowski, designed to resonate with this ensemble of teenage performers.

The concert opens with a Concerto for Turntables and Orchestra by Gabriel Prokofiev, grandson of Sergey, bringing echoes of club nights, dance floor beats and remixes into the concert hall.

Making his second Proms appearance this season is Benjamin Grosvenor, the soloist in Britten's early Piano Concerto. Star-crossed young lovers make an appearance in the second-half of the concert in the form of music for the ballet Romeo and Juliet by Prokofiev senior.

Katie Derham presents.

BBC Proms 2011 are simulcast on the award-winning BBC HD channel – the BBC's High Definition channel available through Freesat 109, Freeview 54, Sky 169 and Virgin 187.
