It is Adam's first day as clinical lead and he's determined to continue the legacy of success left by Jordan, as a new series of the popular medical drama begins. Eight new juniors arrive and Adam jumps at the chance to do some team building. However, some recruits are more enthusiastic than others.

Eager to impress on their first day, the newcomers are keen to go on a call with Adam, but Heather is the one who secures her place. As they head out, Yuki, May and Lenny are left behind. In their eagerness to impress, they cause chaos and are ordered out.

Meanwhile, Adam and Heather arrive at a deserted shopping centre where they are directed to a woman named Ella by security guard Lee. Ella is trapped in an industrial-sized fan.

Adam, Heather, Ella and her boyfriend, Dans, are in more danger than they know. Mr Tweedie, the centre owner, believes the place is deserted and has set up an explosive device to destroy the building.

The team hears a rumble and a fireball engulfs them...

Adam is played by Tristan Gemmill, Ruth by Georgia Taylor, Heather by Georgia Moffett, Yuki by Will Sharpe, May by Laura Aikman and Lenny by Steven Miller.

Guest artists include Katie Griffiths as Ella, Luke Pasqualino as Dans, Clive Wood as Mr Tweedie and Brendan Mackey as Sherb.

Match Of The Day

Saturday 12 September
11.05pm-12.25am BBC ONE

Gary Lineker presents all the goals and highlights from today's Premier League fixtures.

Liverpool's only meeting with Burnley in the last 12 years brought a shock win for the Clarets, thanks to Djimi Traore's farcical own goal in the FA Cup third round at Turf Moor in 2005.

Today, the teams met at Anfield for the first time in the Premier League, with Burnley having already enjoyed a victory over Manchester United this season.

Tottenham beat Liverpool in the opening game of the season and today turned their attentions to champions Manchester United, who they held to a frustrating 0-0 draw in the corresponding fixture last season.

Stoke led Chelsea 1-0 with three minutes to go the last time the teams met, only for the Blues to pinch victory with two late goals. How would Carlo Ancelotti's team fare at the fortress that is the Britannia Stadium today?

Manchester City paid almost £40m for Arsenal's Emmanuel Adebayor and Kolo Toure over the summer and the former Gunners faced a swift reunion with their former team-mates at the City of Manchester Stadium earlier today.

Hull were the only team that Sunderland did the double over last season. Could they win their fifth match in a row against the Tigers today?

Blackburn and Wolves have met just twice previously in the Premier League but those two meetings have thrown up a total of 10 goals, which augured well – for neutrals at least – for today's clash at Ewood Park.

In today's other games, Portsmouth played Bolton while West Ham travelled to Wigan.

Skate Nation Ep 9/11

Saturday 12 September
9.00-10.00am BBC TWO

There are only three teams left in the competition as Sam Nixon and Mark Rhodes present Skate Nation's nail-biting semi-final. With only two places available in next week's final, the talented skaters have to dazzle the judges with their roller skills and dance moves.

This week, the remaining teams perform two routines in the Skate stadium. The studio audience and judges Camilla Dallerup, Asha Kirkby and Kevin Adams face the unenviable decision of deciding who will skate on and who will sadly have to skate home.

Camilla marks the teams on their rhythm, entertainment value and dance skills; Kevin on their energy, dedication and attitude; and Asha on their skating skills and technical ability.

Additional roller entertainment is provided in a routine from The British Champion artistic skating duo Darren Dyke and Kirsty Chick.

Singing, dancing and doing the chores is all in a day's work for the Swann family

My Almost Famous Family is a brand new, all-singing, all-dancing comedy series set to strike a chord on CBBC. Singing, dancing and doing the chores is all in a day's work for the Swann family. By day, the Swanns perform as television pop group We're In Perfect Harmony; by night, they're a big and sometimes harmonious step-family.

When English musician Gary Swann stepped on stage with African-American soul singer Shalondra in Las Vegas, it was love at first verse. Now, their families have come together, moved back to the UK and landed the best gig in TV – house band on everyone's favourite tea time chat show, The Totally Annabelle Show.

In front of the TV screens, teen presenter Annabelle is a darling and adored by all. However, once the cameras stop rolling, the Swanns soon discover her real persona...

With five child stars living, singing and schooling under one roof, there are guaranteed tears and tantrums – and the occasional spontaneous musical number! Firstly, there are Gary's two teenage children – self-styled bad boy of rock and secret softie Hadley and quick-witted musical genius Toyah. Then there are Shalondra's children – fame-hungry diva-in-the-making Aretha and family joker Isaac. Finally, Gary and Shalondra have produced the baby of the family – cheeky, entrepreneur-in-the-making Martha, who is deaf.

In the first episode, the Swann family get their first shot at fame as the house band on The Totally Annabelle Show.

Gary is played by Andrew Clover, Shalondra by Rakie Ayola, Hadley by Angus Harrison, Aretha by Dominique Moore, Isaac by Matt Morgan, Martha by Rachel Bradley and Annabelle by Alice Henley.

My Almost Famous Family is simulcast on the BBC HD channel – the BBC's High Definition channel, available through Freesat, Sky and Virgin Media.

Following the success of its online debut on BBC Switch last year, Off The Hook (formerly Fresh) – a comedy set in the world of university freshers – is airing in full multi-channel broadcast on BBC Switch on BBC Two. It is the first UK comedy series to make the transition from online to a BBC TV channel.

Off The Hook explores the lives of a mismatched group of fresh-faced students as they enjoy their first taste of independence, with all the mishaps and misadventures that entails.

The show features a cast of both new and established actors, including: Jonathan Bailey as Danny; Danny Morgan as Shane; Joanna Cassidy as Scarlet; and James Buckley as Fred.

In the first episode, Danny embarks on his first week at uni – the fun, the parties and the girls, including Becky.

However, Danny is about to get an earth-shattering blast from the past in the form of Shane, his outrageous slacker mate from school and the "worst best friend ever". Blagging his way in through last-minute clearing, Shane proceeds to gatecrash Danny's entire existence and ransack his best-laid plans.

Off The Hook forms part of a season of new drama and comedy for teens on Switch in the autumn. This also includes The Cut, a new, multi-platform soap which airs in five-minute episodes on bbc.co.uk/switch, with a weekly omnibus in the Switch zone on BBC Two.

Off The Hook can also be seen on BBC Three on Thursdays.

BBC PARLIAMENT Saturday 12 September 2009

The Commons And The Crunch

Saturday 12 September
8.00-8.40pm BBC PARLIAMENT

Two years ago this week the collapse of Northern Rock heralded the era of the credit crunch. Televised pictures of people queuing to withdraw their money shocked the nation and MPs alike.

The Commons Treasury Committee launched a series of hearings into what went wrong and, as the crisis unfolded, this became the main forum in which the big players had to explain themselves.

The MPs grilled not just ministers and public figures including the Governor of the Bank of England; they also heard from masters and former masters of the financial universe – and even from the journalists who reported on the financial collapse.

In this BBC Parliament special, Mark D'Arcy, the BBC's parliamentary correspondent, replays the highlights, and, as the dust begins to settle, finds out what the key players think.
