Monday 11 October
9.00-10.00pm BBC ONE

When a Chinese snatch team arrive in London for a 48-hour visit, Section D's suspicion is aroused, as the tense spy thriller continues. This causes Beth Bailey to call on the services of Kai, a Chinese Security Services agent who she has been grooming to help infiltrate security.

Ruth Evershed goes undercover at QMK, a research facility, and discovers that the Chinese are looking for Jiang Lee, a scientist who has discovered a de-salinisation technique worth billions. Desperate to get hold of Lee, the Chinese will stop at nothing, but the UK cannot afford to lose an intellectual property of such value.

Meanwhile, a bomb is reported at QMK and Ruth quickly evacuates with Jiang Lee. However, it soon becomes clear that the bomb was merely a ruse to get Lee out in the open, and the team begin to believe that Kai might be a triple agent.

Later, there is suspicion from Section D on receiving a second bomb threat, but when they investigate they discover a bomb in central London. With minutes to spare they are under pressure to stop a catastrophic explosion and ensure Jiang Lee stays on British soil.

Amid the chaos, Lucas and Maya's relationship intensifies and he becomes increasingly distant from the team. Are Lucas's loyalties beginning to change as his past catches up with him?

Beth Bailey is played by Sophia Myles, Kai by Benedict Wong, Ruth Evershed by Nicola Walker, Jiang Lee by Daphne Cheung, Lucas North by Richard Armitage, Maya by Laila Rouass and Harry Pearce by Peter Firth.

Celebrity guests Richard Herring and Vanessa Feltz join Dave Gorman to explore the novel ideas pitched from the studio audience, who all believe their idea could just be a stroke of Genius. Proposals this week include a cat-shaped cat flap, sheep scrabble, wheat biscuit architecture and a glove puppet designed especially to assist with job interviews. Two audience members also get the chance to build and test a prototype of their idea – "nacho gloves".

This week undoubtedly offers some innovative propositions, but, of course, it's up to the judges to decide between the good, the bad and the genius.

A History Of Horror With Mark Gatiss –
Frankenstein Goes To Hollywood Ep 1/3

New series
Monday 11 October
9.00-10.00pm BBC FOUR

Horror fan Mark Gatiss
Horror fan Mark Gatiss

Mark Gatiss – The League Of Gentleman star, Doctor Who writer and lifelong horror fan – celebrates the horror film in this new three-part series for BBC Four.

Episode One follows Mark as he brings his passion, expertise and humour to the golden age of Hollywood horror. From the Twenties until the Forties, a succession of classic pictures defined the horror genre. Mark explains just how daring and pioneering these films were, and why they still send a chill down the spine today.

Mark starts with silent film Phantom Of The Opera, starring Lon Chaney, "the man of a thousand faces". Mark explains how Chaney achieved his ground-breaking make-up effects, and shows how the Phantom's success kick-started the horror boom. He recounts how a modest British touring play inspired the first great horror talkie, Dracula, with Bela Lugosi, and demonstrates how British director James Whale radically moved the genre on with Frankenstein, featuring Boris Karloff's unforgettable portrayal of the monster.

Mark explores the increasingly camp and daring themes of James Whale's work in Bride Of Frankenstein and The Old Dark House, whose star Gloria Stuart, now 99, reveals what it was like to work with Whale and Karloff. Mark shows how Hollywood horror changed and evolved, becoming dark and perverse (in films such as Freaks), and light and humorous (the swashbuckling Son Of Frankenstein), before a final flourish with the psychological horror of RKO Pictures films (Cat People, I Walked With A Zombie), which still influence directors today.

But by the early Fifties, the monsters were facing their biggest threat – the rise of science fiction films in the post-war atomic era.

Along the way, Mark steps into some of the great sets from these classic films, discovers Lon Chaney's head in a box, and finds out why Bela Lugosi met his match in Golders Green.

The Octonauts

Monday 11 October
Time to be confirmed CBEEBIES

Aquatic adventurers Captain Barnacles Bear, Lieutenant Kwazii Cat and medic Peso Penguin continue to take viewers on an exciting voyage of discovery through the world's oceans as they patrol the seas and have thrilling adventures underwater. Stationed in their impressive home base, The Octopod, The Octonauts dive into action whenever there is trouble underwater, using their fleet of aquatic vehicles to rescue sea creatures, explore new underwater worlds and triumphantly save the oceans from danger – all in a day's rather wet work.

On Monday The Octonauts set out to find and photograph Professor Inkling's long-lost cousin, the elusive Giant Squid; on Tuesday a huge Orca whale becomes stranded on a beach and the Octonauts devise a plan to pull him back into the water, with some help from a group of tunnelling Fiddler Crabs; Wednesday's wet adventure sees the crew trying to catch a runaway Octopod when it's hijacked by a group of crustaceans trying to escape their algae-infested waters; on Thursday Shellington gets lost in a dark sea cave and gets unexpected assistance from some blind Remipedes; and Friday's fun sees Captain Barnacles Bear and Kwazii Cat leaping onto the backs of some speedy Sailfish to help round up their out-of-control rescue vehicles.

The Octonauts, based on the richly imaginative books by design team Meomi, combines classic team adventure with dazzling CGI animation to transport children to a world they don't normally visit... deep under the ocean.

The Octonauts is filmed in HD and will be shown on the BBC HD channel – the BBC's High Definition channel, available through Freesat 108, Freeview 50, Sky 143 and Virgin 108 – on the Saturday and Sunday following the weekday transmissions, from 2pm.
