The BBC is getting in the festive spirit, and giving us the gift of exclusive programmes. It's making five shows exclusive to its iPlayer service.

'Star Wars at the BBC' sees actor and comedian Peter Serafinowicz delve into the BBC's archives to find the biggest 'Star Wars' actors and characters from the seventies appearing on BBC shows like 'Blue Peter', 'Pebble Mill' and 'Ask Aspel'. Considering most of the archive footage hasn't been seen since first broadcast, there should be some gems in there. It's available from midday today.

'Luther: The Journey So Far' takes us on a whistle-stop tour through series one to three of the detective drama. Should set you up nicely for the two-part special coming soon to BBC One. It's available on iPlayer now.

'EastEnders: Back to Ours, Danny Dyer and Kellie Bright' features both actors taking a look back at their favourite EastEnders moments as Mick and Linda. It's available from New Year's Day at 7:30pm.

'The Voice UK: Meet the Coaches' is a chance to get to know the show's coaches: Paloma Faith, Boy George, Ricky Wilson and But not Tom Jones. They'll reveal their favourite songs, food, and even their innermost secrets. It's available from New Year's Day at 6am.

'Matt Berry Does... Happy New You' features the 'Toast of London' star celebrating your over-indulgence during the festive period. It's the latest in his comic documentary series, and will be available from New Year's Day at 9pm.

BBC iPlayer is now available on Apple TV.
