TV Guide 2019-06-15

High culture is about this week. BBC Cardiff Singer of the World (BBC4 network, BBC2 Wales) finds the greatest opera-and-lieder singer. The Family Brain Games (BBC2 from Mon) tests the brains of generations.

There's lower culture, too. A Question of Sport (BBC1, Fri) begins its golden anniversary series. There are new episodes of The Crystal Maze (C4, Fri), and call centre weirdness on Hey Tracey (ITV2, Mon).
