Greatest Game Shows

The 100 Most Popular Game Shows
One question you almost certainly haven't been asking yourself is "What are the 100 most popular articles on this site?". Well, tough, because we have and you can see the result of our Greatest Game Shows - it lists stalwarts like The Crystal Maze and Interceptor to surprises such as Kate Thornton's Dishes. Who knew?

While UKGameshows.com is (even if we say so ourselves) the most comprehensive guide to the genre anywhere on - or off - the web, with over 2100 programmes already in our database it is inevitable that even we're stumped sometimes. So we're asking for your help. A number of our "most wanted" shows are now listed here and a team of volunteers is standing by, waiting to add your contributions to our compendium of game show knowledge. Go on, help us out. It's what Mumsy would want.

14 November More Heavy Action
The BBC's Christmas schedule will include a one-off revival of Superstars, featuring sixteen medal winners from the recent Olympics. Amongst those due to compete are Mo Farah, Nicola Adams, Alistair Brownlee, and Kath Grainger. The full line-up's in the BBC press release

The Voice UK
13 November Found Their Voice
The judging panel for the second series of The Voice UK has been confirmed, and it's very familiar. Jessie J, Sir Tom Jones, Danny O'Donaghue, and will.i.am are all going to reprise their roles when the show comes back in 2013.

Fort Boyard
15 September RIP Jacques Antoine
UKGameshows is very sad to hear of the death of the prolific French TV director and producer Jacques Antoine, aged 88. During a career that spanned over 45 years, he developed 150 formats for French radio and television. His shows were characterised by imaginative locations and the novel use of physical activity - such as 1960's La Tête et les Jambes (Head and Legs). His adventure show Fort Boyard, still running in France, was developed in the UK as The Crystal Maze, and his other ideas influenced Treasure Hunt and Interceptor.

Red or Black?
8 September Largest Cash Prize in History Paid
Graham Fletcher, a carpenter from Reading, has won £1,500,000 on ITV's Red or Black?. It's the biggest money prize ever awarded on UK television, and he goes to the top of our All Time Winners List.

Richard Stilgoe
16 June Heraldic Rigor Sits
In the Queen's Birthday Honours, Richard Stilgoe was knighted. This was for his charity work, and not his services to anagrams. Mary Berry from The Great British Bake Off was appointed CBE. Those appointed OBE included The X Factor's Gary Barlow and Armando Iannucci of The 99p Challenge.

28 May The Great British Bake Off Wins Again
Is there no stopping Mel and Sue's grotto of gateaux? The Great British Bake Off rolled off with the Best Lifestyle programme at the Rose d'Or festival, and added another layer of success with the Best Feature at the BAFTA Television awards. A new series is being whipped up for later in the year.

Total Wipeout
29 March Totally Wipedout
The BBC won't commission another series of Total Wipeout. The show has been making its way across the big red balls of television for four years, but now looks a bit wobbly, and will fall into the water after one final series.
