World Professional Snooker Championship From the Crucible Theatre, Sheffield
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
