: Sport 85

The first of a series of programmes recalling the best events in a remarkable year for British sport, introduced by Harry Carpenter. The Final Frame
Steve Davis v Dennis Taylor One of the most watched and talked about events of the year came to an unbelievable climax in April, as the deciding frame was played in the Embassy World
Professional Snooker Championship, at the Crucible Theatre, Sheffield. Dennis Taylor, 8-0 down at one stage, had somehow fought his way back to level the match 17 each, and 181 million viewers were about to watch the longest frame of the entire championship. Steve Davis and Dennis Taylor recall every dramatic moment as, for the first time, they watch the final
68-minute frame with David Vine.

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.
