Saved on Camera is a feel-good series featuring people who have really brought their A game with a series of good deeds caught, you guessed it, on camera

In this age of selfies and Instagram, it makes a nice change when the images captured on camera are selfless acts of bravery (Monday, 11.45am, see our TV Guide for full details).

And there are plenty of those in BBC’s new daily series Saved on Camera.

It's all about heart-in-the mouth rescues recorded on mobile phones, CCTV and dash-cams.
