Christmas Gold, 1.40pm PRAISE the lord and hallelujah, this marks the start of an entire afternoon of Only Fools episodes, so sack off whatever else you were doing. Kicking it off is a Christmas episode from 1996, with Rodney bottling up his emotions after Cassandra had a miscarriage. Then Del has to impress the in-laws when Raquel's estranged parents arrive for a meal. Enjoy the performance of Buster Merryfield, in his last proper appearance as Uncle Albert.

RED BULL SOAPBOX Dave, 6pm A RACE for the wickedly adventurous. That's the tagline for this bizarre event that has captured the imaginations of millions. And we're told 'fast is good, but outrageous is even better'. This international event sees amateur drives race homemade soapbox vehicles, each hand-made and fuelled by nothing but sheer courage and determination. We see the thrills and spills from the Belgian capital of Brussels.

DEATH IN PARADISE Drama, 8pm AFTER two series, actor Ben Miller decided to hang up his sleuthing hat and quit the show.

On the upside, we get to meet DI Humphrey Goodman (Kris Marshall) in his Caribbean copper debut, as he arrives to find out who killed Poole.
