UK TV programmes to watch this week : 13/07/2024

MOTD Live: UEFA Euro 2024 (BBC 1/HD | 6:30pm to 10:40pm | Sunday 14th July 2024) ** PICK OF THE WEEK **

Spain v England (Kick-off 8.00pm). Coverage of the final, which comes from Olympiastadion in Berlin, where England are aiming to win the tournament for the first time. Somewhat surprisingly, this is the first meeting between the two at a major finals since Euro 96, when England progressed via a penalty shootout after a goalless draw at Wembley Stadium. Wembley was also the venue in 2021, when Gareth Southgate’s men were on the wrong end of their final shootout against Italy, but they now have the chance to become the first England men’s senior team to win a major tournament on foreign soil. Spain have undoubtedly been the best team in the competition so far, and have seen off Germany and France in their last two matches to reach this stage, and victory here would see them become the most successful nation in European Championship history.

Getting ready for a cycle

Just a short video of myself. Getting ready to head out a cycle! Since it was raining, give me a good reason to wetsuit up!

This video was filmed using a Tapo 2K 4MP QHD Indoor Camera (Tapo C225). Which I use to keep an eye on Bugsy and Ted.

MOTD Live: UEFA Euro 2024 (BBC 1/HD | 4:00pm to 7:30pm | Saturday 6th July 2024) ** PICK OF THE WEEK **

England v Switzerland (Kick-off 5.00pm). Coverage of the third quarter-final, held at Dusseldorf Arena. After topping a group containing Serbia, Denmark and Slovenia, England were on the brink of a shock last-16 defeat at the hands of Slovakia, but Jude Bellingham scored a spectacular overhead kick in injury-time, before Harry Kane headed home in extra time to give them a 2-1 win. However, they are likely to need an improved display if they are to defeat the Swiss, who came second in their group behind Germany and above Hungary and Scotland, before producing an excellent display to eliminate holders Italy with a 2-0 win courtesy of goals by Remo Freuler and Ruben Vargas.

Guy Martin and the Lost WW2 Bomber (Channel 4/HD | 9:00pm to 10:30pm | Sunday 7th July 2024)

Guy helps build a massive dam around the crash site at Lake IJssel, then drains it to reveal the aircraft. He joins the expert team as its members recover Pathfinder Lancaster ED603 piece by piece.
