The Embassy World Professional Snooker Championship
Last night the new champion emerged after two weeks of tense and demanding match-play from a field of the world's best 16 players. To win snooker's most coveted title, the champion will have played some 164 frames in order to win the £7,500 first prize.
Tonight's programme will look back at this richest-ever tournament, at the turning points, at the triumphs and disasters, and at the way the title was lost and won. Introduced by ALAN WEEKS Commentator TED LOWE
Jessica Mitford - the Honourable Rebel
Few contemporary writers' lives are as full of contrasts as Jessica Mitford 's, a peer's daughter who rebelled against her aristocratic parents, eloped to Spain with Churchill's nephew and joined the Communist Party which she left after the Hungarian uprising.
She later wrote the wickedly funny best-sellers Hons and Rebels and The American Way of Death. In this film she revisits the scenes of her childhood and gives new insights into her parents, Lord and Lady Redesdale, who, with her sisters Unity and Diana, were notorious for their support of Hitler. Of her other sisters, Nancy was the novelist and Debo the present Duchess of Devonshire.
She also recounts her frequent tussles with the FBI and gives an inside account of the joys and sorrows of being a Civil Rights activist within the Communist Party.
