The Coral United Kingdom Championship
The Final (Part 3) frames 15-21
In recent times STEVE DAVIS , TERRY GRIFFITHS and ALEX HIGGINS have dominated the championship, in fact no other player has appeared in the final since 1980. Griffiths has appeared in two finals, Higgins and Davis, the holder, in four. This season Griffiths and Higgins have not found their form, while DENNIS TAYLOR and CLIFF THORBURN have, with Davis , won most of the frames and the money so far.
DAVID VINE introduces this afternoon's play from the Guild Hall, Preston.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
