Batteries Not Included Monty Python star John Cleese returns to TV in this 6 x 60-minute gadget series from Liberty Bell. He will be joined by the likes of Alex Zane, Danny Wallace, Dom Joly and Richard Herring who road test some of the strangest gadgets out there from chin gyms and baby dusters to the giant slipper.

Argumental This 12 x 30-minute panel show, produced by Tiger Aspect, positively encourages an argument and the more heated the better. John Sergeant tries to maintain order as team captains Marcus Brigstocke and Rufus Hound are joined by the very vocal Jimmy Carr, Sue Perkins, Phill Jupitus, Charlie Higson, Johnny Vegas and Frankie Boyle who get stuck into key global debates such as “there aren't enough celebrity magazines” to “the credit crunch is no bad thing.”

Car of the Year 2008 Returning for a fifth year, this 4 x 60-minute series from IWC marks the return of Johnny Vaughan to presenting. Putting the pedal to the metal, Johnny provides a turbo-charged look back at the motoring year and asks Dave viewers to vote for their four wheeled superstars.
