Live coverage from the City of Manchester Stadium, where the host nation are favourites to win their first Group A match (kick-off 7.00).

Including highlights of the curtain-raiser between the 2001 runners-up Sweden and Denmark.

Malaria: Defeating the Curse. Three thousand people die daily from the effects of malaria. For 100 years scientists have battled this insidious mosquito-borne disease - yet every time it appears that progress has been made, malaria has returned stronger and more deadly. But scientists now have a new weapon in their arsenal, the product of bitter Cold War rivalries and modern biotechnology. Could an extraordinarily powerful drug discovered and kept hidden by China under Chairman Mao finally win the war? A new series is planned for the autumn.

Storyville reveals how a postman and a gardener took on the corporate might of McDonald's. In 1997, David Morris and Helen Steel were convicted of libelling the fast-food giant following a campaign against the corporation's employment policies and advertising. But in February this year they scored a landmark legal win: the European Court ruled they should have received legal aid from the government; they were granted a total of €35,000 and a retrial. Director Franny Armstrong ; Series editor Nick Fraser
