TV Guide This Week

Two performance series reach their finals: Britain's Got Talent (ITV, 7.30 Sat) and Maestro at the Opera (BBC2, 9pm Fri). Odd scheduling from the BBC, with Young Musician (BBC2, 6pm Sat; BBC2 and Radio 3, 6pm Sun) clashing with The Voice UK (BBC1, 6.10 Sat and 7.25 Sun). It feels like Just a Minute has been everywhere lately, and its third series of the year begins (Radio 4, 6.30 Mon); there's also a new series of So Wrong It's Right (Radio 4, 6.30 Wed). On the digital channels, Watch has Scream Extreme! (8pm Sun), ITV2 has The Exclusives (9pm Thu), and Challenge features Blockbusters (8pm weekdays).

Schedules subject to change.
