Revision as of 20:33, 28 January 2010


A guide to game shows broadcast in the UK and Ireland for the week beginning 30 January 2010

Schedules are subject to change.

Three entirely brilliant shows reach their climactic finals this week. Brain of Britain 2009 (Radio 4, Monday 1.30) finds the greatest general knowledge quizzer from four outstanding players. Bamzooki (CBBC, Wednesday 5.15) reaches for the greatest fighting computer creation, and the final of Accumulate! ( should be published at some point in the next week. There's also a new episode of Total Wipeout (BBC1, Saturday 5.30), and viewers need not fret, as Panic Attack (BBC2, weekday lunchtimes) allows Stephen Nolan to appear on national television. Panic!!!
