The issue of addiction is explored in the latest film in the new BBC Daytime series Moving On, created by multi award-winning writer Jimmy McGovern.

Plumber Billy has always struggled with gambling. He claims it's under control but, with bills piling up, his wife Michelle is close to breaking point. Billy can't help himself; he even gambles the money a customer gave him for parts and ends up stealing a pair of taps from the betting shop toilets to complete the job.

When Billy makes a chance discovery of a small bag of diamonds hidden in the loft of customer June, his mate Dave eggs Billy on to take a few of the gems. Instead of paying his debts, though, Billy tries to make his windfall larger at the bookies and it's not long before he's lost it all. He takes more diamonds, but is soon back to square one again.

With Dave on the next flight to Spain, and Michelle packing her bags, there's a knock at Billy's door. Is there anything that can make him face his addiction?

Billy is played by Reece Dinsdale, Michelle by Eva Pope, June by Melanie Kilburn and Dave by Paul Usher.

An Adélie penguin guides its chick

For the animals of the polar regions time is running out in the autumn as the Arctic Ocean freezes over and the sea ice advances around Antarctica.

Hordes of polar bears gather on the Arctic coast waiting for the return of the ice. Beluga whales head to an estuary to thrash their bodies against the gravel and exfoliate in a gigantic whale spa. Inland, the tundra dramatically transforms from green to fiery red and musk ox fight to defend their harems.

In Antarctica, newly feathered Adélie penguin chicks take their first reluctant swim in dangerous waters. A leopard seal explodes from the sea and pulls one from an ice floe in a hunting manoeuvre that has never been filmed before.

Narrated by David Attenborough, Frozen Planet was co-produced with the Open University.

Freeze frame features the team filming on the treacherous sea ice edge as emperor penguins return to Antarctica.
