TV Guide This Week

A special edition of University Challenge pits Manchester against Magdalen Oxford (BBC2, 9pm Saturday). We've got All About Two (BBC2, 9pm Monday), a quiz about the BBC's second television channel, and the grand final of Mastermind (BBC2, 7.30 Friday). On other channels, we're looking forward to Treasure Hunt (Challenge, 7pm Saturday), the Cornwall edition.
