BBC-2 Knockout Snooker Competition
An introductory programme to the coming seven weeks' single-frame series featuring the world's top eight snooker players:
Gary Owen Fred Davis (above) Jack Rea Rex Williams John Pulman Kingsley Kennerley
Ray Reardon John Spencer
... and tonight they're all round the same table!
Rarely can any sport, even on television, offer its supporters the top eight exponents of the game in one fifteen-minute appearance. Tonight BBC-2 does just that. Anyone who knows his snooker will agree that these names tonight are the top in their field.
If, on the other hand, your knowledge of the game is limited then we have the best instructors available to teach you some of the tricks of the table. Instead of a pointer these teachers use a billiard cue-in a very spectacular way-and confirm that they really are the masters.
Introduced by Keith Macklin and Ted Lowe

Production team, Reg Perrin David Kenning

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.
