sunshine on leith

The week between Christmas and New Year is a bit of a twilight zone. Thankfully there's plenty of good telly to keep you occupied.

Monsters, Inc 4:20pm, BBC One monsters inc Another gem from the Pixar canon, this sees John Goodman and Billy Crystal take the main roles as big blue bear Sulley and his one-eyed friend Mike, respectively. Their job? Scaring children, whose screams power their firm Monsters, Inc. The problem is, kids nowadays are proving harder to scare. When a child follows them back to their secret city, the action really gets going. Plenty to enjoy for both kids and adults alike.

Sunshine on Leith 4:35pm, Channel 4

Another feelgood musical, but if you can't enjoy them at this time of year, when can you? Inspired by the music of The Proclaimers (them of '500 Miles' fame), the story centres on British squaddies Davy (George McKay) and Ally (Kevin Guthrie) who return from Afghanistan to hook up with nurses Yvonne (Antonia Thomas) and Liz (Freya Mavor). All together now, "And I would walk 500 miles..."

Great Barrier Reef 9pm, BBC One david attenborough great barrier reef Nature documentary from the master, David Attenborough. He first filmed the Great Barrier Reef back in 1957, and now he's back to give it another going over. Watch him descend 1,000 feet underwater in a submersible, investigate fighting coral and explore mantis shrimp. Guaranteed to be stunning.
