Six Nations Rugby - Wales v Italy
BBC 1 14:00pm - 16:30pm

John Inverdale presents live coverage from the Millennium Stadium as Wales and Italy kick off the penultimate weekend of this year's Six Nations.
Warren Gatland's side cruised to a comfortable victory against the Italians when the two sides met in Cardiff two years ago, thanks to tries from James Hook and Shane Williams. The visitors will start as underdogs again as they look to avoid finishing the competition with the wooden spoon.
Jeremy Guscott and Shane Williams are in the studio to offer their views on the game. Jonathan Davies joins Alastair Eykyn in the commentary box.

Six Nations Rugby - Ireland v Scotland
BBC 1 14:30pm - 18:55pm

Gabby Logan introduces live coverage from the Aviva Stadium as Ireland host Scotland.
The Scots will be looking for a repeat of two years ago when a last-gasp penalty gave them a dramatic victory in Dublin. But Ireland bounced back at Murrayfield last year, as 11 points from Ronan O'Gara helped them to a narrow win.
Keith Wood and Andy Nicol are in the studio to offer their opinions on the match. Commentary comes from Andrew Cotter, who is joined by Phillip Matthews.

The Story of Musical 3/3
BBC 2 20:00pm - 21:00pm

The final episode brings the story up to the 90s and beyond.
We see the rise of the jukebox musical as Bjorn Ulvaeus and Judy Craymer tell the story of the creation of Mamma Mia! Ben Elton and Brian May reveal how We Will Rock You defied the critics to become a smash hit. And as pop culture invaded musical theatre with celebrities like Jason Donovan taking leading roles, the Jerry Springer Opera proved a step too far for the moral majority.
Billy Elliot took inspiration from the doyenne of British musical theatre, Joan Littlewood, as the hit movie was recreated for the stage, while Andrew Lloyd Webber embraced the medium of television to find new stars.

John Inverdale presents live coverage from the Stade de France as France take on England.
New look England, skippered by Chris Robshaw, are looking for revenge following last year's World Cup quarter-final defeat at the hands of Les Bleus. But when these two last met in Paris two years ago, France secured a narrow 12-10 win to claim the Grand Slam.
Jeremy Guscott, Thomas Castaignede and Jonathan Davies are on hand to offer their views on the action. Commentary comes from Eddie Butler and Brian Moore.

Storyville:  Blindsight
BBC 4 23:00pm - 00:40am

Set against the breathtaking backdrop of the Himalayas, this documentary follows the gripping adventure of six Tibetan teenagers on a climbing expedition up the 23,000 foot Lhakpa Ri, on the north side of Everest. A dangerous journey soon becomes a seemingly impossible challenge made all the more remarkable by the fact that the teenagers are blind.
Believed by many Tibetans to be possessed by demons, the children are shunned by their parents, scorned by their villages and rejected by society. Rescued by Sabriye Tenberken, a blind educator and adventurer who established the first school for the blind in Lhasa, the students invite the famous blind mountain climber Erik Weihenmayer to visit their school after learning about his conquest of Everest.
Erik arrives in Lhasa and inspires Sabriye and her students Kyila, Sonam Bhumtso, Tashi, Gyenshen, Dachung and Tenzin to let him lead them higher than they have ever been before. The resulting three-week journey is beyond anything any of them could have predicted.

Glory Glory Man United

Horizon:  Out of Control
BBC 2 21:00pm - 22:00pm

We all like to think we are in control of our lives - of what we feel and what we think. But scientists are now discovering this is often simply an illusion.
Surprising experiments are revealing that what you think you do and what you actually do can be very different. Your unconscious mind is often calling the shots, influencing the decisions you make, from what you eat to who you fall in love with. If you think you are really in control of your life, you may have to think again.

Letting Go
BBC 1 22:35pm - 23:20pm

Having a child leave home is difficult enough for any parent, but when your teenage daughter has Down's syndrome it is even harder. Domenica Lawson, nearly sixteen, is unsettled at the prospect of growing up and of having to leave a warm and supportive home. But it is her mother, Rosa Monkton, who is faced with the challenge of planning for the future, knowing that her daughter must eventually leave home and start an independent life without her.
Letting Go follows Rosa and her daughter as she leaves school and takes her first steps into a more adult world. And as Domenica prepares for the challenges of independent life, Rosa meets three other young people with learning disabilities, and discovers how they are managing their transition to greater independence.
Jess Hiles has a rare genetic disorder. With the encouragement of her parents, she has moved in to her own flat. But as she and her parents have discovered, living alone does not mean living independently.
Richard Sherratt's learning disabilities meant that despite having significant support from carers he was unable to cope with neighbourhood hostility and has had to return home to be looked after once again by his mother, Dawn.
Jack Hale, from Devon, is a year older than Rosa's daughter and also has Down's syndrome. There is a happy and well-run care home very nearby, but his mother Ronni has never really considered it. Her sparky son has ambitions to be a DJ and to be famous, and she is reluctant to limit his horizons.
