TV Guide This Week


A guide to game shows broadcast in the UK and Ireland for the seven days beginning 24 March 2007

Schedules are subject to change.

New and notable

The People's Quiz (BBC1, 7.35 Saturday)

In which lots of famous people (and Kate Garroway) go up and down the country looking for smart alecs.

Questions pour un Champion Speciale (TV5, 8pm Saturday)

The occasional international edition, with contestants from Canada, India, Ireland, Gabon, Russia, Benin, Lybia, Spain, Cuba, and Algeria all scratching their heads at M. Leper's strange syntax. Or was that the English equivalent?

Making a Meal of It (BBC2, 1.30 weekdays)

An amateur cooking contest.

The Apprentice (BBC1, 9pm Wednesday)

Another year, another search for a new broom.

I Blame the Spice Girls (C5, 9pm Friday)
