Match Of The Day – Euro 2008

Press pack

       

BBC One brings highlights of the second round of matches from Group D as Sweden take on the highly talented Spaniards, and reigning champions Greece play Russia.

 

Swedish striker Henrik Larsson spent two seasons playing in Spain for Barcelona; winning the La Liga title twice, and the 2006 Champions League final against Arsenal. He will be hoping to remind the Spanish fans and former club colleagues Xavi, Puyol and Iniesta that his talents still remain, despite him now being 36 years of age.

 

The two sides met twice during qualification for Euro 2008 with the home side winning on each occasion. Spain recorded a 3-0 win in Madrid whilst Sweden ran out 2-0 victors in Solna.

 

The other Group D encounter pits Greece against Russia in a re-run of a group match from the 2004 finals in Portugal. Russia emerged as 2-1 winners that day, but it was the Greeks who had the last laugh. Otto Rehhagel's side went on to lift the trophy whilst the Russians failed to make it past the group stages.

 

Coverage of the match is also available on the BBC HD Channel.

Tom Foss, the mystery man who has been following Kyle since he first awoke in the forest, has broken in and planted bugs throughout the Trager household. As quickly as he sneaks in, he leaves, totally undetected.

The Class Of 2008 – (L-R) Daryl, Portia, Louis, Daisy, Will and Kesh
The Class Of 2008 – (L-R) Daryl, Portia, Louis,
Daisy, Will and Kesh

In today's double bill of the observational documentary series following six talented young friends trying to make it in their chosen fields of fashion, music, design, acting and DJing, Daisy is still in town after London Fashion Week and is spending every minute with Will. Despite the fact that Will's band, Blondelle, have just three days until the Brits after-party gig, he jets off on an all-expenses paid trip to Milan Fashion Week with Daisy, announcing that they are a couple once again. The rest of Blondelle, however, are rather peeved at having lost their lead singer.

 

Back in Milan, Daisy and fellow model Alice Dellal get the celebrity treatment and fight it out for clothes, as they prepare to meet Mario Testino and the paparazzi at the D&G fashion show.

 

Budding actor Daryl, meanwhile, is accepted at a top London acting school and heads off for his first drama lesson. He gets a reality check when he's given only 10 minutes to learn his first script and has an American accent to perfect.

 

Will returns to London and is told by the band that he should play tambourine. He lets guitarist Sam know just how he feels about the Blondelle mini-mutiny. Can they put their differences behind them in time for their career-defining gig?

 

With no bands or DJs confirmed and the deposit needed for his club night, Louis starts to worry just where the money is going to come from. He visits the set of BBC Switch show Sound to try to tempt BBC Radio 1's cutting-edge DJ, Annie Mac, to appear at his event. Meanwhile, Portia shows off her new Fifties-inspired look at a fashion shoot across town. She then has an important day of castings in Paris.

 

Back in Camden, Blondelle have their last rehearsal before their big gig, knowing that it could make or break them. And with just 12 nights to go till his event, insomniac Louis has decided to call his club night Top Heavy. He finally gets an answer from Annie Mac, but it's not good news...

 

Blondelle's moment has arrived: the West Rocks Brits after-party gig venue is packed with punters including Kesh, Daryl and Louis all there to lend support, with Daisy arriving at the last minute...

The Surgery

2.05-2.25pm BBC TWO
www.bbc.co.uk/switch

       

The weekly teen talk show, hosted by Jeff Leach, continues and today discusses the subject of Racism – Identity And Culture Clash.

 

Jeff and his teen surgery ask whether racism still affects the lives of today's teens or if it is now being used as an excuse. With race-motivated bullying at school, attacks on the street and intimidation by gangs, could it ever be a thing of the past? Jeff Leach and 40 teens argue it out.

 

The Surgery deals with an assortment of topical issues facing teens, such as dating, family, social networking, ASBOs, fashion, drinking and drugs, body image, celebrities and politics.

 

The series has a dedicated page online at bbc.co.uk/switch which offers expert advice and practical information.

The team is on hot on Piers's trail
The team is on hot on Piers's
trail

Doctor Roberts sedates Shift, who is rushed back to MAKO HQ, as the interactive animated detective series about a team of four genetically altered investigators continues. After treatment, Shift goes back to normal and MAKO sends him back on the case.

 

The four visit Chloe McCarthy, who tells them that she dumped JJ (who has since been murdered). In a bid to win her back, JJ wanted to make himself look more like Piers Ogilvy. Chloe eventually tells the team where Piers is hiding out.

 

Soma asks MAKO to do a sweep of Piers's hideout, inside and out. As they walk down some alleyways it becomes clear that they are being followed. Piers is hiding out in a one-room hovel and, as the team bursts through the door, he escapes through the window.

 

The four give chase but have to split up. Soma runs down an alleyway but the stranger who has been following the team shoots her with a stun gun.

 

Piers, meanwhile, reaches a jetty and jumps into a speedboat. Ecko, Stream and Shift catch up in their hovercraft and give chase through the flooded streets of London. Piers is thrown overboard as the speedboat hits a building and explodes. Ecko takes a reading of the water and gets a ghost image of the spot where Piers hit the water. Ecko and Stream dive in towards a sinking Piers.

 

Shift stays on the hovercraft and makes a call to MAKO. It becomes clear that Shift is not a time manipulator at all, but has a secret purpose that the others must not suspect.

 

Meanwhile Soma awakes, and a silhouetted figure leans over her and tells her that he intends to open her up to see exactly what MAKO did to her...

 

Meta4orce is written by Peter Milligan, the renowned graphic novel writer for DC Comics and Marvel. Fully interactive problem-solving games complement the show and viewers can join the action online at key points in the storyline to help solve the crime.

The live coverage of the Artois Championships semi-finals continues, presented by Sue Barker. Andy Roddick won his semi-final last year and went on to claim his fourth Queen's title.

 

The tournament is always a good barometer of form ahead of Wimbledon, although the last man to do the Queen's-Wimbledon double was Lleyton Hewitt in 2002.
