TV Guide This Week


A guide to game shows broadcast in the UK and Ireland for the week beginning 12 September 2009

There's a new run of Masterchef The Professionals (BBC2, 8.30 Monday) and we welcome Design for Life (BBC2, 9pm Monday). Raven (4.05 Tuesday) and Strictly Come Dancing (8.30 Friday) return to BBC1, and Dragons' Den Online to BBC2 (9.30 Wednesday). Four Weddings comes to Virgin1 (8pm Saturday), where BingoLotto also returns (7pm Sunday), and Challenge gains Winning Lines (1pm weekdays).
