Box Clever: Rewind
Pingu The Superhero (U) (BBC pounds 9.99) Providing top adult as well as children's entertainment, this mischievous piece of Plasticine from the South Pole wreaks havoc in a red cape, participates in a fishing competition and builds a paper plane. Eight classic Antarctic adventures make a perfect antidote to Teletubbies.
Only Fools and Horses Trilogy (PG) (BBC boxed set pounds 39.99, right) Having kept over 20 million people glued to their screens last Christmas, this mini-series follows Rodney's efforts to keep up with a sex programme, Del's efforts to shift 125 volatile Latvian radio alarms and the Trotter family's attempts to become millionaires.
Game On - The Second Series (15) (VCI pounds 13.99) Lauded lager-lout sitcom offers a smutty look into the angst-ridden lives of three mismatched flatmates. Matthew reconciles himself with his agoraphobia, Mandy declares herself to be celibate, and desperado Martin has his eye on a young nurse.
