World Snooker: the Final Session

Synopsis

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.
Despite the spread of big-money snooker tournaments throughout the world, there can still only be one world champion, and tonight he will be celebrating victory in the most prestigious event of them all. Stephen Hendry is the defending champion, having beaten the eternal " bridesmaid" Jimmy White a year ago. But Hendry has been out of form lately and White entered the competition without a win this year.
Tonight the two-day,
35-frame final will be fought to a finish on BBC2. At the other extreme to last year's one-sided
18-5 match, fans will never forget the early-hours tension of 1985, when the last ball of the last frame gave Dennis Taylor victory over Steve Davis. This year, though, Taylor was a first-round loser.
Followed by Video Nation People from all over Britain record their everyday lives.
As snooker coverage Is live, subsequent programme times may vary.

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.
