TV Guide This Week


A guide to game shows broadcast in the UK and Ireland for the week beginning 13 June 2009

Schedules are subject to change.

There's a programme called Who Wants to be a Millionaire on ITV (7.30 Saturday), we've no idea what happens there. Nor are we sure what will happen when I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue returns (Radio 4, 6.30 Monday). There are finals of BBC Cardiff Singer of the World (BBC2, 6.30 Sunday) and Countdown (C4, 3.25 Friday), and after waiting over a year for one Mastermind final, two turn up in one week. Artsworld shows the 1980 series in one Saturday, and the 2009 champion is crowned on BBC2 (7pm Friday). Meanwhile, Young Musician of Wales begins (HTV Wales, 10.35 Tuesday).
