Six Nations Rugby Wales v Ireland.
BBC 1.  13:00 - 15:30

Jason Mohammad introduces live coverage from Cardiff's Millennium Stadium as Wales begin the defence of their Six Nations crown.

The Welsh opened the 2012 campaign with victory over Declan Kidney's side in Dublin, before going on to complete their third Grand Slam in seven years. But since then they have endured a torrid time, losing their Test series in Australia 3-0, before suffering four defeats in the Autumn Internationals series, including a surprise loss to Samoa.

Ireland will be looking to build on the promise they showed last time out, with a 46-24 victory over Argentina in November.

Jonathan Davies and Keith Wood are in the studio to analyse the action.

Six Nations Rugby England v Scotland.
BBC 1.  15:30 - 18:00

John Inverdale presents live action as England and Scotland begin their Six Nations campaigns by contesting the Calcutta Cup at Twickenham.

England are looking for a fourth consecutive Test victory over the Auld Enemy, having won last season's Murrayfield encounter 13-6, courtesy of a Charlie Hodgson try. And they begin the Six Nations among the favourites to take this year's title following their memorable win against world champions New Zealand in November.

For Scotland, the game marks the beginning of a new era after the departure of former head coach Andy Robinson, as his interim replacement Scott Johnson takes charge for the first time.

Studio analysis comes from Sir Clive Woodward, Jeremy Guscott and Andy Nicol. Andrew Cotter and Brian Moore are in the commentary box.
Sunday 3rd February

Six Nations Rugby Italy v France.
BBC 1.  14:25 - 17:00

John Inverdale presents live coverage from Rome as Italy meet France on the opening weekend of the 2013 Six Nations.

The French began the 2012 campaign with a 30-12 victory over their continental neighbours, but went on to finish a disappointing fourth in the championship.

Italy will be hoping for a repeat of the last time the two sides met in Rome in 2011, which ended in a memorable 22-21 victory for the Azzurri.

Studio guests are Jeremy Guscott, Thomas Castaignede and Keith Wood. Commentary by Alastair Eykyn and Jonathan Davies.

Panorama - The Great Abortion Divide.
BBc 1. 20:30 - 21:00

Abortion is more controversial than ever, with pro-life activists challenging pregnant women as they try to enter clinics. Doctors in most of the UK are signing off terminations on questionable mental health grounds, while in Northern Ireland women and doctors risk life in prison over abortion. So is our legislation hopelessly outdated? Victoria Derbyshire investigates the great abortion divide and asks if it is time to change the law.

Holiday Hit Squad part 1/4.
BBC 1.  20:00 - 21:00

This series secures unique access to the toughest hotel inspectors in the business and explores how best to make sure holidays across the globe live up to their promise.

Angela Rippon spends the night on patrol with the Spanish police in the holiday resort of Magaluf, where she investigates the effects of holiday boozing and hears the real story from the professionals who have to deal with the consequences when things go too far.

Helen Skelton heads to Egypt to meet Linda, who had a hot air balloon accident on her trip of a lifetime. Left with 62 broken bones, can a tailor-made dream break breathe the magic back into Egypt for Linda, fearful of ever going on holiday again?

Meanwhile, Joe heads to the sunny Algarve, to check into a hotel that has been torn apart online, and calls in expert help to investigate the hidden horrors.

How To Build A Bionic Man.
Channel 4.  21:00 - 22:00

From bionic arms and legs to artificial organs, science is beginning to catch up with science fiction in the race to replace body parts with man-made alternatives.
How to Build a Bionic Man follows psychologist Bertolt Meyer, who has a bionic hand himself, as he meets scientists working at the cutting edge of research to find out just how far this new technology can go.
Meanwhile, a team of roboticists create a complete 'bionic man' for the first time, using nearly $1 million-worth of state-of-the-art limbs and organs - the products of billions of dollars of research - borrowed from some of the world's leading laboratories and manufacturers.
The bionic man is being built by leading UK roboticists Richard Walker and Matthew Godden from Shadow Robot. Made with the support of the Wellcome Trust, it will be displayed at London's Science Museum from 7 February.
In the two centuries since Mary Shelley's Dr Frankenstein brought his 'monster' to life, the subject has fascinated science fiction in books, comics, film and TV.
From Star Wars' Darth Vader to Robocop, and from Dr Who's Cybermen to Blade Runner's replicants, most stories focus on the potentially dire consequences of 'playing God'.
Now, thanks to research on advanced prosthetic arms and legs, as well as artificial eyes, hearts and lungs - and even hybrids between computer chips and living brains - scientists can finally replace body parts and even improve on human abilities.
While Bertolt's search shows just how far science has come, it also asks questions about what it means to be human and where this technology could lead in the future.
