TV Guide This Week


A guide to game shows broadcast in the UK and Ireland for the seven days beginning 3 February 2007.

Schedules are subject to change; those listed for Channel 4 particularly so.

New and notable

The Search (5pm Saturday, C4)

Egypt. As, er, not seen last week. And, indeed, as not seen on Sunday nights any more.

When Will I be Famous? (6pm Saturday, BBC1)

Graham Norton hosts a talent show.

Beauty and the Geek (1.50 Sunday, C4)

A second series, imported.

The Crystal Maze (8am and 6pm weekdays, Challenge)

The children's specials

Takeshi's Castle (6pm weekdays, FTN)

Don't worry, Crystal fans, it's back next week.

Magnus Magnusson: A Tribute (7.30 Monday, BBC2)

The title says it all.

Dragons' Den (8pm Wednesday, BBC2)

Knocking anything ITV has to offer into a cocked hat.
