MONDAY: The Temptation Game With Angus Deayton (BBC1, 10.30pm) Last in the series that takes a light-hearted look at temptation. The dry-witted Angus Deayton talks to three people whose lives have been dramatically altered by giving in to temptation. They include Barry Austin, whose love of food has resulted in his weight shooting up to 50 stones. Angus also meets a compulsive gambler who sold off everything he owned to fund his habit.

TUESDAY: Watch This Or The Dog Dies - The History Of Youth TV (BBC2, 9.30pm) The birth of "yoof TV" in the early 1980s with the arrival of Network 7 changed the face of television for good. There was lots of fast camera work and fast-talking presenters - some of whom disappeared very quickly - and an explosion of graphics. Janet Street-Porter, who can take the credit, or blame, for launching the revolution, gives her views. There will also be comments from Jonathan Ross, Jo Whiley, Magenta DeVine and Charlie Parsons.

WEDNESDAY: The Hanging Gale (BBC2, 9.30pm) Another chance to see the McGann brothers Joe, Mark, Stephen and Paul get together on screen for the first time. This dark, powerful four-part historical drama is set during the Irish famine of 1846 and the boys play brothers struggling to save their farm.

THURSDAY: Natural Born Footballers (BBC2, 6.45pm) A profile of legendary Scotland star Denis Law, who was named European Footballer Of The Year in 1964. His cheeky style made him a hero on and off the pitch and he helped transform the fortunes of the nation's team - especially on one Saturday at Wembley in 1967.

FRIDAY: Friends (Channel 4, 9.00pm) Chandler (Matthew Perry) finds that his attraction to Joey's (Matt Le Blanc) girlfriend refuses to go away, pitting the pair of love-lorn flatmates against each another. Ross finds himself being pursued by a beautiful woman with a hygiene problem.
