TV Guide 2014-06-28

This week's schedules are all very provisional. They depend on the discussions between ITV and the BBC and on results from the men's football world cup. All of which means we have an excuse to try something different: listings in text form. This is an experiment, let us know what you think at @ukgameshows.
