Bodies BBC2, 9.00pm

Musicality Channel 4, 9.00pm

THIS fun follow-up to Operatunity finishes tonight with a big performance of Chicago.

The original 2000 applicants were whittled down to just 10, but only five contestants have made it through to the bitter end.

It's crunch time for Mathew, Donna, Caroline, Rebecca and Warren as they give it their all in the final rehearsals.

Nerves also play a part as the five try and convince Chicago's American producers that they are good enough for the show.

The performance was filmed two nights ago at the Adelphi Theatre in London's West End. A packed audience turned out and included TV presenter Gaby Roslin and comedienne Victoria Wood.

Watch out for Donna Hazelton from Fife - her singing steals the show.

One Night in Bhopal BBC1, 9.00pm

EXACTLY 20 years after the worst industrial accident in history, this documentary revisits the tragedy of the Indian city of Bhopal.

The bustling city relied upon the American owned Union Carbide chemical plant for more than 1000 jobs. But during the night of December 2 a gas leak killed more than 7000 people and badly injured another 200,000.

A cocktail of chemicals seeped out, including Methyl Isocyanate (MIC) - a substance so dangerous it is known as liquid dynamite.

Many people were killed in the shanty town near the plant.

The plant itself offered compensation payments of just pounds 320 a person.

This emotional film speaks to the people affected and tries to find out why the disaster happened.
