The millennium Dome could become the venue for the game show of the century, it emerged yesterday.

Organisers of the Dome said they are negotiating with television companies for shows to be beamed from the site in Greenwich throughout 2000.

No deals have been agreed, but it is thought that a highlight of the television schedules will be a long-running game show, culminating in a series of contests of physical and mental ability in the Dome.

Other television events expected to take advantage of the Dome's television studios and massive display space include awards ceremonies, concerts, discussion shows and educational programmes.

A spokesman for the New Millennium Experience Company, which has the task of filling the Dome, said: "No deal has been signed and I cannot confirm any details of what programmes might be made ... but we expect a number of live broadcasts from the Dome."
