It's BBC1, it's 6.30pm, it's a hidden camera series, and it's Richard Hammond. So, essentially, it's Total Wipeout with less water / Amanda Byram. Here Hammond hosts a hidden camera series in which he heads up a team of 'secret' agents that carry out missions on behalf of members of the public. So he's in a remote studio again. These trained professionals and their hidden cameras could be lurking around any corner, at any time, pulling off cunning stunts - all in the name of family entertainment. If you prefer something more cerebral, Clare Balding hosts a search to find the most intelligent individual in Britain at 7.10pm. Expect of aptitude tests, challenges and the odd puzzle.
