Sheffield's Crucible Theatre hosts action from the quarter-finals of the world championship, where the difference between winning and losing is a hefty £31,600.
At this stage last year, England's Paul Hunter claimed a semi-final place after sealing a thrilling 13-12 win over compatriot Peter Ebdon. The defending champion had edged into a 10-9 lead but Hunter refused to crack, securing the next three frames to put himself in touching distance of victory. Ebdon's resilience ensured that the match would go to a tension-filled decider, yet on this occasion the more experienced player fell at the final hurdle. Welshman Mark Williams had no such trouble reaching the semi-finals: the 2000 world champion's impressive 13-7 victory over Stephen Hendry meant that he became only the second player to regain the world number-one ranking, a feat first accomplished by fellow countryman Ray Reardon.

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.
