Network TV BBC Week 20: Saturday 15 May 2010

BBC ONE Saturday 15 May 2010

Formula 1 – Monaco Grand Prix Qualifying

Saturday 15 May

12.10-2.35pm BBC ONE

Jake Humphrey hosts live coverage of qualifying for the Monaco Grand Prix.

The glitz and glamour of Monte Carlo provides the setting as the drivers negotiate the tight turns of the famous street circuit in an attempt to land the all-important pole position for Sunday.

Jenson Button topped qualifying last year, going on to win the race itself – one of six victories the Briton notched up on his way to the Formula 1 title. Button will be aiming for a similar result this season, although his rivals include Michael Schumacher who will be looking for a record-equalling sixth victory in the race. However, Monaco has also been the scene of controversy for the German, who was stripped of pole position in 2006 after stewards ruled that he deliberately stopped on the track after running wide, preventing rivals from setting a faster qualifying time.


All New Total Wipeout Ep 8/8

Saturday 15 May

5.25-6.25pm BBC ONE

In the search for the Champion of Champions, the top three contestants from each previous show return to All New Total Wipeout in one massive head-to-head jamboree across South America's craziest obstacle course.

As always, Richard Hammond and Amanda Byram take charge and guide viewers through the fastest and most competitive episode ever of Total Wipeout.

All the contestants have made it through to the fearsome and soaking wet Wipeout Zone once before, but who can do it again?

The competition is crazier than ever before. Not only do the competitors have Total Wipeout experience, they also have form. And for some of them, that form is bad! How many will have learnt from their mistakes and how many have returned just simply to repeat the same hilarious errors?

The All New Total Wipeout final features some of the best obstacles the course has ever seen. The Rake-in-Face can smack the unsuspecting or over-confident contestant right in the face; a computer games expert, a café owner and a search-and-rescue pilot all become victims in embarrassing but spectacular style.

This week also sees the return of The Swing Thing. Not only a test of skill and strength, it is also a test of judgement. Very few people, even the Total Wipeout finalists, possess all three, while most people here lack two or more... A Take That impersonator and a crime scene investigator just can't make the grade, but a detective inspector makes his mark.

The final also provides original and spectacular solutions to Total Wipeout's favourite obstacles: in a lop-sided boxing match, Huddersfield's very own "Muhammad Ali" stands up to the Sucker Punch; and a cheerleader manages the jammiest ball crossing ever seen on the show.

When it comes to Crash Mountain, the speed and agility of the finalists is astounding, while Dizzy Dummies is one of the closest in this series, with plenty of dirty tricks as the finalists battle it out for that coveted title. The stakes are higher, the competition tougher – and no one is ready to give up their place in the Wipeout Zone without a fight.

Over The Rainbow
