TV Guide This Week


A guide to game shows broadcast in the UK and Ireland for the week beginning 10 April 2010

Schedules are subject to change.

Voting begins on Monday for the Third All-Time Poll, and the Bamzooki team (BBC2, 11am Saturday) are already staking out the BBC's virtual studio, ready to defend the honour of CGI. There's another chance to see Raven The Dragons' Eye (BBC2, 7.30am weekdays), and after the Masterchef Australia final (UKTV Watch, 7pm Sunday), there's School for Cooks (7pm weekdays). Out of the Frying Pan (BBC2, 9pm Monday) follows two contestants from The Restaurant. Up-to-the-minute comedy on You Have Been Watching (C4, 10pm Thursday), with archive material on The News Quiz (Radio 4, 6.30 Friday) and Fort Boyard (TV5, 5.30 Friday). BBC Young Musician of the Year 2008 is repeated on late-night BBC4, ahead of the 2010 competition (7.30 Friday). And did we mention the grand final of Only Connect (BBC4, 8.30 Monday)? No? Grand final of Only Connect this week, too.
