TV Guide This Week


A guide to game shows broadcast in the UK and Ireland for the week beginning 24 January 2009

Schedules are subject to change.

We're pleasantly surprised to see a new series of The Sorcerer's Apprentice (BBC2, 9am Sunday) appear, though they might have delayed it a bit to avoid the tennis next week. The Book Quiz (BBC4, 8.30 Monday) returns, and Mastermind (BBC2, 7.30 Friday) picks up with heat 15. Changes to the TV5 schedule mean Questions Pour un Champion moves to 4.30pm, the Fort Boyard repeats to 1pm on Wednesdays, and the Saturday edition is sunk. Challenge gains Win My Wage and Through the Keyhole. And replacing Brain of Britain is the antidote to intelligent games, Quote... Unquote (Radio 4, 1.30 Monday). Can we have another episode of Only Connect The Radio Show?
