Sue Barker presents live coverage of the 2008 women's singles final at Wimbledon. The famous Centre Court has witnessed some classic finals in the past – 30 years ago, Martina Navratilova edged out great rival Chris Evert 7-5 in the deciding set to claim the first of her nine singles titles. Ten years later, Navratilova herself was beaten by a 19-year-old Steffi Graf, who was on her way to her famous "golden" slam.


But there can have been few more popular winners than a decade ago when Jana Novotna won the title that had agonisingly eluded her in two previous finals. Last year, it was Venus Williams who lifted the famous Venus Rosewater dish for a fourth time after her victory over French player Marion Bartoli.


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

reaches a thrilling conclusion

The entire universe is in danger as the Daleks activate their masterplan, in the concluding episode of Russell T Davies's Bafta Award-winning time-travelling drama. The Doctor is helpless, and even the Tardis faces destruction. The only hope lies with the Doctor's secret army of companions – but as they join forces to battle Davros himself, the prophecy declares that one of them will die.


David Tennant plays the Doctor and Catherine Tate plays his companion, Donna Noble.



This Time Tomorrow Ep 1/8
Saturday 5 July
8.45-9.35pm BBC ONE

Tess Daly presents a glamorous, new, eight-part lottery show, recorded at BBC Scotland's Pacific Quay studios in Glasgow.


Each show sees 10 hopeful contestants compete for some of the most exclusive prizes on television – the Bronze, Silver and Gold tickets.


Every prize will be worth winning but, with each ticket, the prize increases in terms of size, duration and wow factor.


The winner of the Bronze prize might get the opportunity to see the queen of country, Dolly Parton, in concert at London's O2 Arena before heading out for the ultimate country break.


The Silver prize-winner could be sipping champagne at the British Grand Prix before jetting off to Monte Carlo, the playground of the rich and famous, to sample some of the finer things in life.


The winner of This Time Tomorrow's Gold prize, meanwhile, will be jetting off on an incredible holiday of a lifetime to a city that has previously hosted an Olympic Games, such as Sydney. There, they will experience two weeks of first-class, five-star luxury.


The game is all about knowledge and nerve as the winners of the Bronze and Silver prizes are given the opportunity to upgrade their prizes for a place in the Gold Final. If they upgrade right there and then, a lucky audience member will get the chance to win the Bronze or Silver prize.


All the winners embark on their prize trips the day after the show is transmitted.



Saturday 5 July
9.35-10.25pm BBC ONE

Zoe has to give Maggie the results of Kris Kemp's post mortem, which point to her being responsible for the death, as the popular medical drama continues. Maggie protests her innocence and repeats her claim that it was Simon's fault, but to no avail – there are no notes to support her assertions. An inquest has been called and, if a coroner decides that Maggie's actions caused the death, she will be subject to a criminal prosecution.


Elsewhere, a mother says goodbye to her daughter, but the father seems in a rush to get himself and his daughter out of the house. Stacey, meanwhile, has gone cold turkey and, without telling anyone, is now suffering from paranoid hallucinations. While out driving, he causes an accident involving the father and daughter and impales his leg on a metal pole. No one believes Stacey when he says he hasn't been drinking. The father and daughter are taken to the ED, where long-held family secrets are revealed.


Stacey is in a mess and Ellie blames Abs. Abs doesn't believe that Stacey hasn't been drinking, but Ruth knows he is telling the truth, having experienced alcoholism before.


Toby, meanwhile, starts the day on a high. He has flats lined up to see and his future with Joanne and Lana is all mapped out in front of him – he feels as if he can conquer the world. But, by the end of the day, will his arrogant attitude have cost him all the things he holds dear?


Zoe is played by Sunetra Sarker, Maggie by Susan Cookson, Stacey by Andy Newton Lee, Ellie by Sarah-Jane Potts, Abs is played by James Redmond, Ruth by Georgia Taylor and Toby by Matthew Needham.
