TV Guide This Week

They've been promoting it with the wit, wisdom, and inner monologue of Victoria Coren, and that's the first time anyone's bothered to promote Only Connect (BBC4, 8.30 Monday). So we won't bother promoting the new series of Only Connect (BBC4, 8.30 Monday), which begins on BBC4 at 8.30 on Monday. Also this week, Mark Damazer marks half a century of University Challenge on The Archive Hour (Radio 4, 8pm Sat), there's a Who Wants to be a Millionaire special (ITV, 8pm Sunday), then after Only Connect is Celebrity Juice (10pm Thursday, ITV2), and that's probably the only time these two shows will ever appear in such close proximity.

Schedules subject to change.
