Every night this week from Monday through to Friday, ITV4 offer up a chance to see a selection of iconic films starring Roger Moore as James Bond.

In Live and Let Die, after three MI6 agents are murdered, Bond heads to New Orleans to track down the killer. As he investigates, he discovers a link between a drugs baron and the dictator of a small Caribbean island.

In Man with the Golden Gun, Bond discovers that international assassin Scaramanga is plotting to kill him. On the orders of M, Bond heads to Beirut to attempt to discover why he is on Scaramanga’s kill list.

In The Spy Who Loved Me, Bond teams up with a beautiful Russian spy in order to track down a missing nuclear submarine. Their mission leads them to powerful businessman Stromberg, who lives under the sea in his own specially designed Atlantis. The duo’s attempts to get to Stromberg are thwarted by his henchman Jaws (Richard Kiel, pictured above).

In Moonraker, Bond tries to find out what has happened to a missing space shuttle. His quest to find the culprit brings him back into contact with Jaws.

Finally, in For Your Eyes Only, Bond is given the task of retrieving a piece of spy equipment which is lying at the bottom on the sea in a sunken ship. However, Bond is not the only one looking for it. Bond ends up in a race with the Russian government as they both hunt for the machine.

Roger Moore James Bond Season on ITV4 Monday 4 – Friday 8 December 2017 from 9.00pm on ITV.

Sweet Makers at Christmas

From candy canes and sugar mice to yule logs and chocolate coins, sweet treats are an integral part of our Christmas celebrations. Following the success of The Sweet Makers on BBC Two earlier this year, four modern confectioners will recreate the treats of Christmas past – and discover how their predecessors helped create many of the culinary festive traditions that we enjoy today.

Chocolatier Paul A Young, bespoke cake decorator Cynthia Stroud, chocolatier Diana Short and sweet consultant Andy Baxendale will use original recipes and equipment to whip up the festive bestsellers of Christmases past.

Guided by food historian Dr Annie Gray and social historian Emma Dabiri, they’ll uncover the mystery of what an earth a sugarplum is, before decorating a series of exquisite Twelfth Cakes, affordable only to Georgian’s wealthy elite. As they move into the Victorian era our confectioners encounter the gaping gulf between rich and poor and create treats for both – from Queen Victoria’s favoured Boar’s Head cake to jelly pistols and sugar mice accessible to children with just a few pennies to spend.

Finally they’ll explore the wealth of chocolate novelties launched in the 1920s, including the predecessor of that modern Christmas favourite the Chocolate Orange – the Chocolate Apple.

Produced by Wall To Wall for the BBC. The Executive Producer at Wall to Wall is Emily Shields and the BBC Commissioning Editor is Abigail Priddle.

Maze Master Richard Ayoade guides a team of intrepid celebrity adventurers around the mighty maze in this fiendishly fun festive special in aid of Stand Up To Cancer. The Aztec, Medieval, Industrial and Futuristic zones have all been dramatically transformed for Christmas. The Knight (Jessica Hynes) is clearly desperate for an invite for the holiday season, Jarhead (Adam Buxton) has already been on the sherry and Richard has to contend with a group of carol singers who have double booked the maze for rehearsals.

Gold medal-winning Olympians Ellie Simmonds and Nicola Adams, Made in Chelsea’s Ollie Locke, The Saturdays and Strictly star Mollie King, and Murder in Successville comedian Tom Davis form the tinsel-tastic team of stars hoping to win crystals to buy time in the Crystal Dome and earn a huge cash prize for Stand Up To Cancer.

Amazing Spaces Snow And Ice Special

In this Christmas Special of Amazing Spaces, airing on Thursday 14 December at 8.00pm on Channel 4, Architect George Clarke and master craftsman Will Hardie travel to Norway, to discover how a country with some of the harshest weather on the planet has become a leader in small space design. Norwegian craftsmanship and determination puts the country at the forefront of global architecture. George travels by husky sled to a tree house in a forest that can withstand nine tonnes of snowfall and gale force winds.

There’s also a visit to an ice hotel – the mother of all igloos, complete with 30 rooms, a bar, and even a snow chapel. The boys meet members of the local Sami community, to see the moveable home that has kept members of their community safe for hundreds of years. There’s a disused oil silo turned into a circular home; a geodesic aluminium dome; and an epic family home in the mountains. And Will meets leading explorer Borge Ousland.
