Formula 1: The British Grand Prix – Qualifying

12.10pm, BBC1

In the grip of Britain's perennial sporting disappointments: the yearly trauma of Wimbledon, the quadrennial despair of the World Cup, it is easy to forget that the current F1 world champion is English, as was his immediate predecessor, and that the pair of them now race in the same team. McLaren's Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton are both in fine form in a fast car, and will start among the favourites at Silverstone. Last year's race was won by Red Bull's German prodigy Sebastian Vettel, which should provide more incentive.

T In The Park

7pm, BBC3

More coverage of the Scottish festival which has, as usual, pulled in the big names; not least in the form of Eminem, who headlines the main stage tonight. »

- Andrew Mueller, Rebecca Nicholson, Martin Skegg, Phelim O'Neill, David Stubbs, Will Dean

Charlie Brooker's Screen burn: Science Of The Movies

'Nar Williams is the world's most enthusiastic nerd. I found myself curiously proud of him'

I'm a geek. In 1998, while co-presenting a radio show about technology, I was loaned a Diamond Rio, one of the first commercially available MP3 players. It connected to the computer via the parallel port, had a tiny monochrome LCD display, could store 32Mb worth of music (roughly an album's worth), and absolutely blew my mind. It had no moving parts! The music came from nowhere! It was clearly alien technology; an enchanted futuristic device straight from a Buck Rogers movie. Excited beyond belief, I ran all over London showing it to everyone I could find.

Absolutely no one gave a shit. "But there's no tape, no CD, no minidisc; the music comes from its memory!" I'd squeal. And they would yawn in my face.

A few years later these people could be found cooing »
