Golf: Ryder Cup Highlights (BBC2, regions vary)

FOR the first time in a while, Europe's golfers are going into a home Ryder Cup as underdogs, with many pundits believing the star-studded, Major-laden American team will comfortably retain the trophy they won at Hazeltine two years ago.

But as all golf fans will tell you, things are never that straightforward in this biennial clash of continents, and you can almost guarantee there'll be high drama in France before the destination of the cup is decided on Sunday. This programme features highlights of the opening foursomes and afternoon fourballs at the Albatros Course of Le Golf National in Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines, Paris, as European captain Thomas Bj?rn and his US counterpart Jim Furyk hope to establish an early lead which could be vital in the latter stages.

Bargain Hunt (BBC1, 12.15pm)

IT'S BBC Music Day and to mark it (and make 1990s indie kids feel very old) two bands are going head to head.

Yes, Jarvis Cocker and Candida Doyle of Pulp are taking on Mark 'Bez' Berry and Rowetta Satchell of the Happy Mondays to see who can make the most profit at auction (with all proceeds going to charity, of course). They'll be let loose with two experts and £300 at the Kent County showground, but which pair will win the battle of bands? Meanwhile, presenter Charlie Ross keeps the music theme going as he visits a legendary recording studio in Wales.

Rameses, Moses & Murder: Revealed (C5, 7pm)

MOSES is one of the biblical figures who seems to most appeal to filmmakers, but while we've had the blockbusting versions of his story, this documentary explores its historical roots.

It looks at the figure of Rameses the Great, the third pharaoh of the 19th Dynasty of Egypt, as well as the legend of Moses, who as a baby was placed in a basket by his mother and left to float down the Nile River in order to avoid a decree that every first-born male child be immediately killed. Later, an Israelite of the tribe of Levi, Moses led the children of Israel out of Egypt.

Celebrity MasterChef (BBC1, 8.30pm)

THE three remaining celebrities take part in the 2018 final. Their penultimate challenge is the toughest and most daunting of the competition - The Chef's Table.

The trio will be working out of his new restaurant, Bryn Williams at Somerset House, cooking for an exceptional gathering of some the best chefs in the country. Back at base, the three must cook and present a faultless three-course meal for judgement by John Torode and Gregg Wallace, in what is their last chance to prove they have what it takes to be crowned champion. Last in the series.
