TV Guide This Week


A guide to game shows broadcast in the UK and Ireland for the seven days beginning 9 August 2008

Schedules are subject to change, and BBC daytimes suffer some major alterations from the Olympic coverage.

Highlights this week:

Xtra Factor: One Year On (ITV2, 8pm Saturday)

Whatever happened to last year's winner, ol' Whoever He Was.

Countdown Gold (Channel 4, 2.45 weekdays)

A week of episodes from July 2007.

Maestro (BBC2, 9pm Tuesday)

Clive Anderson guides eight celebrities into the murky world of conducting. The winner will work at a BBC-sponsored concert in September.
