The Embassy
World Professional Snooker Championship From the Crucible Theatre, Sheffield
Fourth day
At 10.30 the 'Hurricane' and the 'Whirlwind' will be breezing into the Crucible in what is certain to be one of the most entertaining sessions of the entire championship.
Alex Higgins (5), who completes his match and Jimmy White (11) who starts his, are probably the two most naturally-gifted players in the world. Neal Foulds and Rex Williams, will be doing their level best to upset the odds, always assuming that they themselves have won through in the qualifiers.
At about 2.30 David Vine introduces the first Snooker Break of the championship. He talks to the experts about the game, the rules and the history, and answers viewers' questions on any snooker topic.
At 3.0 Doug Mountjoy and Eddie Charlton begin their sessions.
David Icke introduces over seven hours of uninterrupted coverage. Commentators Ted Lowe Jack Karnehm, Clive Everton

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.
