TV Guide This Week


A guide to game shows broadcast in the UK and Ireland for the week beginning 18 July 2009

Schedules are subject to change.

Skate Nation (BBC2, 9am Saturday) is the BBC's summer competition, and ITV has the broadcast pilot Anonymous (6.30 Saturday). Only slightly more demanding is the third member of the Monday Ultrabrain, as Round Britain Quiz returns (Radio 4, 1.30 Monday).
