TV Guide This Week


A guide to game shows broadcast in the UK and Ireland for the week beginning 31 January 2009

Schedules are subject to change.

The grand final of Britain's Got the Eurovision Factor is on Saturday at 6.40, and Mr. Lloyd Webber had better have something good in his bag. There's a new run of Shipwrecked (C4, 12.30 Sunday) and a return for Help! Teach is Coming to Stay (CBBC, 10am Sunday). Viewers in Ireland can avoid the talent show Glas Vegas (TG4, 8.30 Sunday) and those in Wales might enjoy High Tackle (BBC1, 9.30 Friday). Highlight of the week, though, is the first chance in years to see Interceptor (Challenge, 8am Sunday). Set your alarms now!
