TV Guide This Week


A guide to game shows broadcast in the UK and Ireland for the week beginning 7 February 2009

Schedules are subject to change.

Dave prepares for a new series of Argumental with a highlights show (9pm Sunday). Smart-alec quiz Battle of the Brains is back for its second series (BBC2, 6pm weeknights), and BBC4 declaims We Need Answers (10pm Thursday) in a show we're really not sure about.
