Peek at the week.

MONDAY: On Side (BBC1, 10.40pm) A quick return for John Inverdale's excellent sports chat show, kicking off with Ilie Nastase and Joe Frazier.

Others booked for the eight-week run include Henry Cooper, Olga Korbut, Nadia Comaneci, Tommy Docherty and Colin Montgomerie.

John warns: "I don't want someone who knows what's it's like to go into the final round of The Open with a four-shot lead to tell me they were just `taking it one hole at a time'."

TUESDAY: Changing Rooms (BBC1, 8.00pm) Carol Smillie's home improvements show moves to Beeb 1 for its third outing, but the format's the same - neighbours and friends have to transform a room in each other's houses in the space of 48 hours.

There's help from design experts, but the budget must not exceed pounds 500.

The show travels to Cults in Aberdeenshire during the six-week run, but starts in Kent with two neighbouring sisters attempts to create inspiring interiors.

WEDNESDAY: First On Four (Channel 4, 10.00pm) A new six-parter celebrating comics who started their careers on Channel 4 begins with Harry Enfield. Harry's dad, Edward, Kathy Burke and Charlie Higson contribute to the show, while the man himself reveals some of the secrets behind characters like Smashey & Nicey and Kevin the Teenager.

Sidekick Paul Whitehouse says: "It never gets better than when we're poncing around in the kitchen, writing."

THURSDAY: Seesaw (ITV, 9.00pm) First of a three-part drama about a missing teenager. David Suchet and Geraldine James play the affluent, middle- class parents of sulky Hannah Price, kidnapped while out clubbing.

They're then hit with a fax demanding a ransom of pounds 500,000 - and the warning they're being watched.

FRIDAY: Father Ted (Channel 4, 9.30pm) The delayed start to the third, and almost certainly last, series following the tragic death of Dermot Morgan.

The fun starts improbably with the threat of a race riot for the comic clerics.

Craggy Island has an unusually large Chinese community and Ted manages to offend them when he dons a lampshade.

Aided by Dougal (Ardal O'Hanlon), he tires to convince them he's not racist, with hilarious results.
