TV Guide This Week


A guide to game shows broadcast in the UK and Ireland for the week beginning 11 April 2009

Schedules are subject to change.

It's finals week on S4C, where Pen Campau (Monday, 6.30) and Cwis Meddiant (Wednesday, 8.25) both reach their conclusions. ITV is pushing the boat out this week, with the return of Britain's Got Talent (ITV, 7.45 Saturday) this week, and a new run of Hell's Kitchen (ITV, from 9pm Monday).

From this week, we're noting all shows with Audio Description (AudioD) for the blind, and that are Signed for those conversant in British Sign Language.
