Apple's telly offerings just keep on coming and today it's the turn of ITV to bring its wares to the ubiquitous download den.

Right this very second there are more than 260 hours of ITV 'classics' sitting on iTunes ready to be piped down the tubes and onto your iPod. Shows include Cold Feet, The Saint and the indestructible puppet, Captain Scarlet.

Unfortunately there are no plans to add current programmes, such as Harry Hill's TV Burp or, er, Riots: Mobs Out of Control, but others, including Inspector Morse, will be added later this year.

Unfortunately, iTunes' frankly ludicrous pricing has reared its ugly head again. To snaffle all 30 episodes of Captain Scarlet you're looking at an outlay of a whopping £56.70. Madness.

Now, if you'll excuse us, there are some Mysterons that need destroying. If only we could afford it...
