TV Guide This Week


A guide to game shows broadcast in the UK and Ireland for the week beginning 3 April 2010

Schedules are subject to change.

University Challenge has its two annual finals: the quiz finishes on Monday (BBC2, 8pm), and is preceded by the Boat Race (BBC1 and Eurosport, from 3.15 Saturday), back on terrestrial television for the first time since 2004. BBC marks the Easter break with All New Total Wipeout (BBC1, 5.20 Saturday; also CBBC 10am Sat and Sun, BBC3 7.10 Monday), featuring all-new water, all-new obstacles, and an all-new hosting duo. What? It's still Hammond and Byram? Not exactly All New, is it? See also: West End Story (BBC1, 4.10 Easter Monday), following the winners of three recent BBC / Lloyd Webber singing contests. ITV finishes off The Door (8.25 Saturday), and launches into a new run of Divided (5pm from Tues, not STV). Masterchef's finals week is condensed into three days (BBC1, Mon - Wed), but there's always Great British Menu to tickle the taste buds (BBC2, 6pm Tuesday, then 6.30 weeknights).
