TV Guide 2015-09-05

Strictly Come Dancing returns to BBC1, a new run of Quote... Unquote (Radio 4), and we're looking forward to Deal or No Deal from India (& TV, Sat and Sun). A number of new daytime shows: Who's Doing the Dishes? (ITV), Decimate (BBC1), and new Pointless (BBC1). Wednesday is good for nostalgia fans: a retrospective show from CBBC, and ITV Changed My Life.
