FIFA World Cup 2018, BBC1, 2.15pm; STV 7pm

THE field has been narrowed yet further following the last round of knock-out matches, and those lucky enough to have progressed from the last 16 may now be beginning to scent victory – or at least can look forward to a decent reception when they do fly back home. Today sees the quarter-finals between England and Sweden at the Samara Arena (kick-off 3pm) and Russia and Croatia at the Fisht Stadium in Sochi (kick-off 7pm). Gary Lineker is the presenter for the BBC’s coverage, while Mark Pougatch hosts the STV broadcast.

Today at Wimbledon, BBC2, 8.30pm

CLARE Balding introduces highlights of the sixth day’s play at SW19, where the line-up for the last 16 is set to be decided. The middle Saturday is always a special occasion and the Centre Court crowd last year were treated to the sight of Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic progressing to the fourth round with respective straight-set victories over Mischa Zverev and Ernests Gulbis, while Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga was dumped out of the tournament by American Sam Querrey.

Hidden, BBC4, 9pm

THE Beeb’s fourth channel has long been the home of crime drama on a Saturday night and this offering is one of the best of recent months. Sian Reese-Williams plays long-suffering detective inspector Cadi John. This week she discovers her father’s health is rapidly failing and, realising he might have been critical in the wrongful arrest of Endaf Elwy, Cadi knows she must face a difficult chat with him. Meanwhile, the post mortem results reveal the horror of Mali Pryce’s circumstances, so the investigation suddenly becomes more urgent.
