Revision as of 21:14, 27 September 2007


A guide to game shows broadcast in the UK and Ireland for the seven days beginning 29 September 2007

Schedules are subject to change.

New and notable this week:

Strictly Come Dancing (BBC1, 6pm Saturday)


The World's Greatest Elvis (BBC1, 7pm Saturday)

The winner will be determined by ... the studio audience!

Ninja Warrior (Challenge, 6pm weekdays)

One of the most demanding physical challenges ever devised. Tell that to Scorpion Island.

Countdown (More4, 9pm Monday)

A great new quiz to launch Channel Four. Countdown combines entertainment and intellectual tease as it juggles letters, numbers, anagrams and sums. Contestants compete against the clock and against former Brain of Britain star, farmer Ted Moult and his team of statisticians and wordsmiths. It's light-hearted but educational as Ted tells us about the origins of certain words. And it's a game for the family at home - so have pens and paper ready. Presented by Richard Whiteley, Countdown will be on screen four nights a week from Monday to Thursday.

Whose Line is it Anyway? (More4, 11.05 Wednesday)

A 1988 episode.
