TV Guide This Week


A guide to game shows for the nine days commencing Saturday 30 September 2006

New and notable this week:

One Against One Hundred (BBC1, 7.35 Saturday)

In which Dermot O'Leary hosts the new Dutch import that's going to take the country by storm. As we've been saying since 2002. It had better be good.

The Great North Run (BBC1, 9.30 Sunday morning)

Kathryn Apanowicz, Susie Dent, and Carol Vorderman will be walking in memory of Richard Whiteley. Donations

Battle of the Geeks (BBC2, 8pm Sunday)

In a pre-recorded programme, Richard Hammond asks teams of scientists and engineers to transport an egg across the Fish River Canyon in Namibia. Without breaking the egg or the canyon.

The Match (Sky1, 7pm Sunday and 10pm weeknights)

Graham Taylor has chosen his twenty-one celebrities, and must pick a starting line-up of eleven for next Sunday's match.

Jungle Run (ITV, 3.30 weekdays)

A repeat of last year's series. Still the best thing the channel will show all week.

Showbiz Darts (Challenge, 10.30 weekdays)

Celebrities playing darts, surprisingly.

Skatoony (Cartoon Network, 5pm Friday)

Real children compete against real cartoon characters for real prizes.
