Sue Barker hosts further live coverage of this year's Wimbledon Championships. As always, the weather will play its part and Rafael Nadal was perhaps the unluckiest player at the 2007 tournament – having come out to knock up for the match on the previous Saturday, the Spaniard endured seven rain breaks before finally wrapping up his third-round victory on the second Wednesday of last year.

 

Coverage of the Championships is also available on the BBC HD Channel and BBCi.

Tribal Wives – Afar Tribe In Ethiopia Ep 3/6
Wednesday 2 July
9.00-10.00pm BBC TWO
       

A former alcoholic Scottish air hostess experiences life with one of Ethiopia's most fiercely independent nomadic tribes, as Tribal Wives continues.

 

The series sees six Western women, juggling with the pressures of modern life, spending nearly a month living with tribes from the Amazon to sub-Saharan Africa, where women's roles are very different. Their time with the tribes proves to be life-changing experiences for the women.

 

Twenty-eight year-old Lana hasn't touched a drop for over a year, but she is still deeply troubled by her alcoholic past.

 

Ethiopia's nomadic Afar tribe have a tough reputation, carrying guns to protect their cattle and camel herds from rival clans and wild animals.

 

For the women, female circumcision is common and their strict Muslim culture forbids alcohol. Anyone found drinking is immediately beaten and ostracised.

 

From doing house repairs to milking cattle and goats, collecting water from a river where crocodiles prowl to chopping wood, baking bread to walking miles to do the laundry in a lake, Lana discovers how demanding everyday life is for Afar women and learns some of their innermost secrets.

religious Jewish population

Vanessa Engle's three-part insight into Jewish life in modern Britain concludes with an observational documentary set in the uncharted world of the Modern Orthodox Jewish community in Hendon, north west London.

 

Jonathan Faith, a 52-year-old millionaire philanthropist and former owner of high-street chain Faith shoes, sold his company two years ago.

 

A quiet, modest man, he devotes his retirement to trying to prevent religious Jews in Britain from becoming extinct. He spends his fortune not on yachts or first-class airfares but on a mission to reverse the decline in the observant Jewish population in Britain, which is currently a mere 270,000 people.

 

Jonathan started out in life as a secular Jew but became a Modern Orthodox Jew following the birth of his first child 20 years ago. He believes the ancient wisdom of Judaism offers Jews a fulfilled and happy way of life and aims to apply the techniques he learnt in the shoe business to help get the numbers back up.

 

The charity with which he is involved, Aish, takes non-religious Jews on holiday to help put them back in touch with their heritage. Jonathan has designed an eight-week course to teach them what they need to know to become observant, paying the parents of children in Jewish primary schools to attend the classes.
