World Snooker Final


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
A maximum of 11 frames will be played tonight at
Sheffield's Crucible Theatre to decide the recipient of this year's world championship trophy and a cheque for £250,000.
Last year Ronnie O'Sullivan was celebrating his second world title after an emphatic 18-8 win over Graeme Dott. The precociously gifted Essex player needed just 20 minutes of the evening session to take the two frames needed for victory. This was all the more remarkable considering Dott's early 5-0 lead - at this stage, it seemed as if a major upset could be on the cards. However, the Scotsman was generous in defeat: "He's phenomenally good. You have to say he is getting to the point where he could be considered the greatest of all time."
This season the number one seed has bolstered this opinion by winning three world-ranking titles and the Masters - but could he be about to quit?
O'Sullivan is well known for his ambivalent attitude to the sport that has given him fame and fortune - during last season's Irish Masters he declared he was "fed up" with playing in tournaments, while this year he has alluded to a complete change of career. What's next for "The Rocket", and was he hungry enough to reach this year's final?
Presented by Hazel Irvine and Ray Stubbs , with expert analysis from John Parrott and - provided he's no longer in competition - Steve Davis.

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.
