Six Nations Rugby Scotland v Wales
BBC1.  14:00 - 16:25

Gabby Logan presents live coverage of the opening round four fixture of the 2013 Six Nations tournament. Scotland and Wales suffered demoralising defeats at the start of their respective campaigns, but both teams then hit back with impressive wins a week later. The visitors - the reigning Grand Slam champions - are slowly adjusting to being led by Rob Howley, while normal head coach Warren Gatland is busy putting his full focus on assembling a British and Irish Lions squad.
When the two nations met in Cardiff last year, Wales kept their nerve to carve out a ruthless 27-13 victory, as three tries in a devastating 14-minute spell early in the second half broke the resistance of Scotland, who had impressively gone in level at the break with three points apiece.
Commentary by Andrew Cotter and Jonathan Davies.

Six Nations Rugby Ireland v France
BBC1.  16:35 - 19:00

John Inverdale introduces live coverage from Dublin as Declan Kidney's Ireland host Philippe Saint-Andre's France.
Last year's Six Nations clash between the two nations was a hard-fought 17-17 draw in Paris, a rare stalemate after the initial match had to be postponed because of freezing sub-zero temperatures in the French capital. Ireland have not beaten France since February 2009, and that 31-20 victory is their only triumph against Les Bleus in 13 attempts.
Expert analysis comes from Jeremy Guscott and Keith Wood; commentary by Eddie Butler and Brian Moore.
Sunday 10th March

Six Nations Rugby England v Italy
BBC1. 14:20 - 17:00

Stuart Lancaster's England host Italy as they continue their bid to become Six Nations champions. The Azzurri are traditionally seen as the weakest team in the competition, but proved with their opening-day defeat of France that they are no pushovers. Equally, the men in white will be determined not to rest on their laurels - especially given their superb recent displays against nations such as New Zealand and Ireland. When England went to Rome last year, they managed to eke out a narrow 19-15 win.
John Inverdale presents, with former England coach Sir Clive Woodward and former captain Lawrence Dallaglio on hand with expert analysis.

Oscar Pistorius: What Really Happened?
BBC3.  21:00 - 22:00

Police say the death of Reeva Steenkamp was premeditated murder. The accused, her boyfriend Oscar Pistorius, says it was an innocent accident. A documentary team has been in Pretoria, South Africa, digging deeper into a death that shocked the world.
Presented by Rick Edwards, who covered Pistorius's gold-medal winning, world record-breaking achievements at the London 2012 Paralympics, the programme features interviews with friends of both the victim and the accused. Aged 26, Oscar Pistorius is the poster boy of the Paralympics movement - his prosthetic lower legs have given him the nickname Blade Runner. So fast and powerful, he became the first the first double leg amputee to participate in the Olympics, competing in the 400m and 4x400m relay.
But since that glorious summer, reports have emerged of a different side of Oscar Pistorius - involved in brawls and late night fracas. Observers note that when setting bail, the judge made it conditional that until he returns to court in June, Pistorius must not consume alcohol and will be randomly tested to ensure he complies.
Featuring special 3-D graphics, sworn testimony and exclusive interviews, the film attempts to give the most complete picture yet of what may have happened in Oscar Pistorius's apartment in the early hours of February 14th

Horizon:  The Creative Brain - How Insight Works.
BBC2.  21:00 - 22:00

It is a feeling we all know - the moment when a light goes on in your head. In a sudden flash of inspiration, a new idea is born.

Today, scientists are using some unusual techniques to try to work out how these moments of creativity - whether big, small or life-changing - come about. They have devised a series of puzzles and brainteasers to draw out our creative behaviour, while the very latest neuroimaging technology means researchers can actually peer inside our brains and witness the creative spark as it happens. What they are discovering could have the power to make every one of us more creative.
