TV Guide This Week

It's Junior Eurovision weekend, and we have a UK broadcaster! Hurry up to Edinburgh, where Castle FM will be relaying the EBU's official English-language commentary. A good week for the talented: Charlie Brooker has two hours of Channel 4 to talk about video games (9pm Sat), Strictly Come Dancing gets the Friday Night is Music Night treatment (Radio 2, 8pm Fri), the BBC New Comedy Award reaches the semi-finals (Radio 2, 10pm Mon and Tue), and Michelle McManus has an authored documentary about the music of the Western Isles (BBC Alba, 9pm Tue). And what of Brendan from Coach Trip? His Love Cruise begins this week (More4, 9.20am weekday mornings). Don't forget to miss it.

Schedules subject to change.
