Kick-off 7.45pm. Live from the Podgorica City Stadium comes live coverage of the second round of qualifying from Group A as Montenegro take on England. The teams have met four times, all of which have been in qualifying for a summer tournament. The two ties played in Montenegro have both finished in draws – the first match in October 2010 was 0-0 in a very uninspiring match and in March 2013 the game ended 1-1, a Wayne Rooney strike was cancelled out by a 76th minute strike by Dejan Damjanovic. England will be aiming for a win after they demolished the Czech Republic 5-0 in a convincing win in the first round. Presented by Mark Pougatch with commentary from Clive Tyldesley and Lee Dixon.

 

Rudolf Nureyev – Dance to Freedom

Monday 10pm – 11.30pm, BBC4

Bookshop ballet star Artem Ovcharenko recreates Nureyev’s steps by reenacting the Kirov Ballet company’s 1961 European tour, which famously gave the dancer the opportunity to flee the Soviet grip on June 16th when he slipped past his minders at Paris’ le Bourget airport. The programme highlights how his defection is thought to have changed the course of the Cold War and explains how he came to change his allegiance. It features interviews and first hand accounts from those who were there, including rival Sergei Vikulov, prima Ballerina Alla Osipenko, choreographer Pierre Lacotte and Nureyev’s friend and confident, Clara Saint.

The world was shocked when it learned of the story of an Austrian man who imprisoned and tortured his own daughter for 24 years in the basement of the family home, until she was released at the age of 42 in 2008.
