TV Guide This Week


A guide to game shows broadcast in the UK and Ireland for the week beginning 17 October 2009

Schedules are subject to change.

Coming up this week, a new series of The Sorcerer's Apprentice (BBC2, 9am Sunday), er, er, and Fferm Ffactor (S4C, 8.25 Tuesday) is competitive farming. We think. Series final of Design for Life (BBC2, 9.15 Monday), and the obvious choice for the post-pub easy viewing is a rerun of Only Connect (BBC4, 11.55 Friday).
