TV Guide This Week


A guide to game shows broadcast in the UK and Ireland for the seven days beginning 14 June 2008

Schedules are subject to change.

Highlights this week:

Week two of the European Nations' Cup, and we'd usually be publishing a Schedule A and Schedule B, depending on whether the football's shown on ATV or BBC. This time, the games were carved up some months ago, so there are no schedule variations. Hurrah!

The Weakest Link (BBC1, 6.10 Saturday)

Blue Peter special, with John Noakes, Valerie Singleton, Konnie Huq, and Peter Duncan.

The Big Money Game (RTE1, 8.10 Saturday)

A new lottery show hosted by Laura Woods.

Humphrey Lyttelton (Radio 4, from 11.15am Sunday)

The greatest chairman since Mao receives a two-and-a-half-hour tribute: Desert Island Discs, then a Stephen Fry special, and (after The World This Weekend) an appreciation from jazz fans. Repeats of I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue begin on Monday.

Counterpoint (Radio 1, 1.30 Monday)
Countdown (C4, 3.30 weekdays)

It's the tournament finals in two of the longest-running quizzes on television. They're both babes compared to...

Round Britain Quiz Is 60 (Radio 4, 11.30am Thursday)

Tom Sutcliffe finds out the secret of the world's longest-running radio quiz, which returns next week.
