BBC Proms | Love, Virtually | The It Crowd | Would I Lie To You?

Humpbacks From Fire And Ice

11am, Eden

The bull whale is no gentle giant, as we discover in this stunningly photographed documentary, travelling from Hawaii (Fire) to Alaska (Ice). Sir David Attenborough narrates in his lovely, mellowed tones, on images that aren't quite so mellow, such as clashing bulls causing the kind of watery crescendos an industrial tractor might make if chucked into a swimming pool. But it's not all macho posturing: the plaintive cries of a young whale abandoned by her mum to fend for herself will break your heart.

BBC Proms 2010

7.30pm, BBC4

The recent recordings of Beethoven's piano concertos by Liverpudlian pianist Paul Lewis have been deservedly garlanded – all were named Editor's Choice by Gramophone magazine – so this may well be a highlight of this year's Proms. Lewis will play Beethoven's First and Fourth piano concertos, »

Richard Chamberlain Marathon

2pm, CBS Drama

In the 1980s, it was practically TV law that you had to have Richard Chamberlain looking pensive and tangled up in a complicated historical romance if you wanted to make a mini-series. Here, CBS Drama are dedicating a weekend to his work. It's The Thorn Birds today, all forbidden love in the Australian outback; then James Clavell's epic Shogun tomorrow, where he's a 17th-century adventurer in Japan opposite Toshirô Mifune (above) – star of many of Akira Kurosawa's classics.

Doctor Who

6.05pm, BBC1

To recap: Amy's bought a bullet, River's up the creek, and every school bully in the playground has ganged up on our anvil-headed hero and locked him in a cupboard at playtime. However this one resolves itself, it's going to be »

Glastonbury 2010: Grace Dent's liveblog from the sofa

25 June 2010 4:59 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Grace Dent watches the first evening of music from Glastonbury 2010 from the comfort of her sitting room, thereby avoiding early-morning smoothie stall DJ sets. Join her at 7pm

1.03am: I have a feeling this is not the textbook state of mind to be in charge of the Guardian live blogging system. *eyes struggling to focus on the screen, slurping booze* And as this is the third time I've seen Hot Chip it may be time for bed. Ah 'bed'. A Real bed. One I can get to without a 57 minute round trip via the Bingly-Bongly tent on a wild goose chase to see Joy Orbison DJ, a near broken ankle on a guy rope and the gentle wake up call of someone urinating on the side of my tent. Then a shower in the morning, with soap, leaving me unclaggy of armpit and pant district. Staying at home is amazing. »

Glastonbury 2010

From 7pm, BBC3

Once again, the biggest live music event in the British calendar comes to the Beeb, with a hefty whack of coverage to guide the ticketless through the festival; though, depending on the weather gods, viewing might just lead to some sofa smugness. The usual suspects are on hand to host with Jo Whiley, Lauren Laverne, Zane Lowe and Marc Radcliffe on BBC2 looking after the headliners, while Reggie Yates and Fearne Cotton dig in on BBC3. For the full sensory overload, follow coverage online, on the radio and on HD, too; and there are live reviews and news at guardian.co.uk/music/glastonbury and twitter.com/guardianmusic. Rn

Unreported World

7.30pm, Channel 4

One in five Americans are now jobless, yet two-thirds of the unemployed aren't receiving benefits, »
