: International Snooker

The Rothmans Grand Prix With a quarter of a million pounds at stake and valuable ranking points to be won, the Grand Prix is established as one of the most valuable and important championships.
With all matches best-of-nine frames - up to the semi-finals - it is also one of the most unpredictable events, as ten seeded players found out in the qualifiers. Four of the remaining 32 play today. All four have yet to fulfil their individual promise, and the forecast of their fellow professionals a few seasons ago. Tony Meo , who has won World Doubles and Team titles, plays Eugene Hughes and Joe Johnson plays Mike Hallett.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
