New: Who Is America?

Series 1 – Episode 1. Monday 10pm – 10:40pm, All 4

On July 4, Sacha Baron Cohen posted a video of Donald Trump calling the comedian a “third-rate character” who needed to “go to school” to “learn about being funny.” The Independence Day clip hinted that Baron Cohen had a new project in the works, which Cohen teased again days later with another mysterious video.

This one urged viewers to “imagine if Sacha Baron Cohen had been undercover secretly filming a new show for a year,” and included a clip of former Vice President Dick Cheney autographing a waterboard kit.

Satirical comedy written by and starring Sacha Baron Cohen, who goes undercover to explore the diverse individuals across the US political and cultural spectrums.

Wimbledon 2018: Men’s Singles Final and Mixed Doubles Final

Sunday 2:55pm – 8pm, BBC iPlayer.

Sue Barker introduces continued live coverage from the All England Club, as the men’s singles final reaches its conclusion, followed by the final of the mixed doubles. This time 12 months ago, history was made when Roger Federer won a men’s record eighth Wimbledon title, beating Croatia’s Marin Cilic in the showpiece match.

Sue and guests will also be reacting to the men’s final, while there will be further live action in the shape of the mixed doubles final. The 2017 showpiece delivered a memorable British victory when Jamie Murray – brother of two-time men’s singles champion Andy – teamed up with Martina Hingis to take the title.

FIFA World Cup 2018: Belgium v England

Tomorrow 2:30pm – 5:30pm, ITV Hub.

Belgium v England (Kick-off 3.00pm). Mark Pougatch presents coverage of the third place play-off at Saint Petersburg Stadium, as the semi-final losers do battle for the bronze medal. Neither team will be particularly happy with their participation in this fixture, having come so close to playing in the sport’s showpiece occasion, but they will still want to sign off with a victory.

Belgium were edged out by France in the opening semi-final, with Samuel Umtiti’s second-half header proving the difference for Didier Deschamps’ men. England went ahead in their match with Croatia on Wednesday thanks to Kieran Trippier’s early free-kick, but Ivan Perisic equalised in the second half before Mario Mandzukic fired home the winner in extra time. These sides have already played each other in this tournament, with both managers resting key players in what was something of a dead rubber. Former Manchester United winger Adnan Januzaj scored the winner for the Red Devils on that occasion in Kaliningrad. With analysis from Roy Keane, Ian Wright, Lee Dixon and Gary Neville, and commentary by Glenn Hoddle and Sam Matterface.

FIFA World Cup 2018: Croatia v England (BBC)

Wednesday 6:30pm – 9:15pm BBC iPlayer.

Croatia v England (Kick-off 7.00pm). Coverage of the second semi-final, which takes place at Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow, and features the winners of the third and fourth quarter-finals. Having gone the distance against Colombia in the last 16 before prevailing on penalties, England’s quarter-final was an altogether more comfortable affair, as goals by Harry Maguire and Dele Alli gave them a 2-0 win against Sweden. It is the Three Lions’ first appearance in the last four since 1990, and hopes are high that they can reach the final for only the second time, with the other occasion coming on home soil when they won the trophy in 1966.

However, they cannot take the Croatians lightly, who have not been at their fluent best during the knockout stages, but showed great resolve in overcoming both Switzerland and hosts Russia on penalties. This is the second time they have reached the last four, and they suffered a 2-1 defeat at the hands of home nation and eventual champions France the last time in 1998. Subsequent programmes are subject to change.

FIFA World Cup 2018: Sweden v England

Published Thu, 05 Jul 2018

FIFA World Cup 2018: Sweden v England

Saturday 2:50pm – 5:30pm. BBC iPlayer.

Sweden v England (Kick-off 3.00pm). Gary Lineker presents coverage of the third quarter-final at Samara Arena. England progressed to this contest after beating Colombia 4-3 in a penalty shootout, the first time they had triumphed on spot kicks at a World Cup tournament, and only the second time overall, having previously beat Spain at Euro 96. Harry Kane scored in a sixth consecutive England match to give his side the lead early in the second half, only to see the South Americans equalise in stoppage time, and after extra time still couldn’t separate the teams, Eric Dier scored the decisive penalty to send England through.

The Three Lions will now aim to reach their first semi-final since Italia 90, where they finished in fourth place after losing to the hosts in the third-place play-off. Gareth Southgate’s men will be up against a Sweden side that they most recently faced in a major tournament back in 2012, when they triumphed 3-2 in a European Championship group match in Kiev. In their previous fixture, a deflected Emil Forsberg strike earned Janne Andersson’s men a 1-0 win against a Switzerland team situated 18 places above them in the FIFA World Rankings, securing them a place in the quarter-finals for the first time since 1994.

The Scandanavian side have only conceding two goals during the tournament, with both of those coming in a 2-1 group-stage defeat to 2014 champions Germany, and they are now looking to reach a World Cup final for the first time since 1958, where they finished runners-up to Brazil. With commentary by Guy Mowbray and Martin Keown, and analysis from Alan Shearer, Rio Ferdinand and Jurgen Klinsmann.

FIFA World Cup 2018: Colombia v England

Tuesday 6:15pm – 9:30pm ITV Hub.

Colombia v England (Kick-off 7.00pm). Mark Pougatch presents coverage of the eighth match in the last 16 at Spartak Stadium in Moscow, where the winners of Group H play the runners-up from Group G. Colombia started slowly, losing their first match 2-1 to Japan, but came back very strongly with successive wins over Poland and Senegal. By contrast, Gareth Southgate’s England started their campaign well, beating Tunisia 2-1 and demolishing a poor Panama 6-1, before losing their final game 1-0 to Belgium on Thursday night.

The most memorable of the five meetings between these countries came 20 years ago during France ’98. Glenn Hoddle’s side needed a victory in Lens to qualify for the last 16, and first-half goals from Darren Anderton and David Beckham ensured they did just that. The winners of this game will book a quarter-final meeting with either Sweden or Switzerland in Samara on Saturday afternoon. Subsequent programmes are subject to change.

Wimbledon 2018

Published Sat, 30 Jun 2018

Wimbledon 2018

Day One. Monday 11am – 8:30pm BBC iPlayer.

Thwack! There goes the first serve and on comes the BBC’s Wimbledon anthem, calling us to the sofa. Is that a collective sigh, followed by a clink, I can hear as down go three million coffee cups and up go six million feet, the nation in repose, ready for our annual immersion in top class tennis? Yes, it’s the first morning of Wimbledon and our crazy, mixed up world is back on its axis again.

Some things never change: the brilliant green of the grass, the hum of the show courts, the ivy-covered club house, the cheery smile of Sue Barker, the screams of Maria Sharapova. But this year won’t be the same as last. For a start, Andy Murray has a new hip and new horizons, which means he is no longer Britain’s number one challenger (for that you need to gen up on Yorkshire’s finest, Kyle Edmund, a top 20 player in the world who learnt to play on the clay courts of Goole Rugby Club). Then there is Serena, who is back having missed the Championships in 2017 on account of being eight months pregnant.

But Wimbledon has always been about new faces and returning heroes. So that much has stayed the same. Plus ca change… as the French might say. Except we will say that in English. Because, thankfully, we’re not going anywhere. We’re going to be right here on the sofa, spending the next two weeks at Wimbledon.

SUMMARY

Sue Barker presents live coverage of the opening day’s play at the All England Club, as this year’s championships get under way in the men’s and ladies’ singles. The third Grand Slam event of the year on the hallowed grass courts is always one of the highlights of the sporting calendar, and the seeded players may be at risk of upsets as they acclimatise to the conditions after playing on clay for so long. Top men’s seed and defending champion Roger Federer – chasing an unprecedented ninth Wimbledon singles title – opens his campaign on Centre Court against Serbia’s Dusan Lajovic, while matches in the women’s draw include Serena Williams v Arantxa Rus and Caroline Wozniacki v Varvara Lepchenko. Britain’s Liam Broady takes on 2016 finalist Milos Raonic in the men’s draw, while Cameron Norrie meets former British compatriot Aljaz Bedene, now representing his native Slovenia. Arguably the tie of the round sees sixth seed Grigor Dimitrov face Stan Wawrinka.

FIFA World Cup 2018: England v Belgium

Published Wed, 27 Jun 2018

FIFA World Cup 2018: England v Belgium

Tomorrow 6:15pm – 9:15pm ITV Hub.

Gareth Southgate prepares; ITV expects. When splitting the games with the BBC, ITV agreed to one England group game in the hope that they could benefit from a Three Lions journey to the round of 16. Tonight, pundits Gary Neville, Ian Wright, Lee Dixon and co discover whether that belief was well founded.

Extra nerves come from how familiar the opponents are: Kevin De Bruyne, Eden Hazard, Romelu Lukaku, Vincent Kompany… there’s a Premier League All Stars team on show tonight — and it’s not England.

SUMMARY

England v Belgium (Kick-off 7.00pm). Mark Pougatch presents all the action from both sides’ final Group G match from Kaliningrad Stadium in Russia. These sides have been arguably the best of the tournament so far, scoring eight goals each and brushing aside both Tunisia and Panama to qualify with a game to spare. Gareth Southgate and Roberto Martinez will both be hoping for a win here, though, to maintain momentum and send a message to any potential knockout-stage opponents. England will hope to continue their good record against Belgium, having won 15 of the 21 meetings between the two sides, the last occasion being a 1-0 victory back in June 2012. However, Gareth Southgate’s men have won only six games at the group stages since France 98, and will be looking to give England fans more hope that they can progress further in the tournament than in previous years.

The Three Lions will also be keen to improve on the fact that they haven’t progressed past the quarter-finals since Italia 1990. Belgium also haven’t made it past the same stage since they finished fourth at the 1986 tournament in Mexico, when they were defeated 2-0 by Argentina in the semi-finals. Two goals from Diego Maradona in that game meant that Belgium were still searching for an appearance in a World Cup final, something they have yet to do to this day, although their squad is regarded as one of the finest in the world. With commentary by Clive Tyldesley and Glenn Hoddle, and analysis by Gary Neville, Ryan Giggs, Lee Dixon and Ian Wright.

FIFA World Cup: England v Panama

Published Fri, 22 Jun 2018

FIFA World Cup: England v Panama

Sunday 12:10pm – 3:30pm BBC iPlayer.

Here’s a simple Sunday prayer: a decisive victory for England against Panama. Panama are dogged, but the clear soft spot in the group: Gareth Southgate can surely afford to shift up a gear in midfield, leaving Jordan Henderson or Eric Dier to lock things down behind. But frankly it doesn’t matter how it’s done — as long as it is done. Win big, preferably with Marcus Rashford taking the pressure of his captain, Harry Kane, and everyone will be a believer in time for Belgium.

SUMMARY

England v Panama (Kick-off 1.00pm). Gary Lineker presents coverage of both sides’ second Group G match, taking place at Nizhny Novgorod Stadium in Russia. Gareth Southgate’s men come into this fixture following a last-gasp 2-1 win over Tunisia on Monday, with captain Harry Kane proving to be his country’s hero with both goals. Tournament debutants Panama did well to hold Belgium in the first half of their opener, but Roberto Martinez’s side proved too strong in the second half and eventually ran out 3-0 victors. England will be looking to make it out of the group stages of the World Cup for the first time since 2010 after their poor performance at the tournament four years ago. The Three Lions drew one and lost two fixtures in 2014, failing to win a game in a group that also featured Italy, Uruguay and Costa Rica. Recently announced captain Harry Kane will lead his side out in his first-ever World Cup and will be expected to provide the goals that England have desperately needed in the group stages in the past, with the Three Lions only scoring 11 goals in 12 group matches since the turn of the century.

They’ll be facing opponents who are playing in their first-ever World Cup, with Panama progressing after finishing third in the CONCACAF qualifying group. They finished above the likes of the USA and Trinidad & Tobago, with the President of Panama declaring a national holiday after they made it through to the finals. With analysis from Alan Shearer, Frank Lampard and Rio Ferdinand, and commentary by Guy Mowbray and Danny Murphy.
