Coverage of the quarter-finals of the Embassy World Professional Snooker
Championship from the Crucible Theatre, Sheffield. It's part of the unique nature of this tournament that so much has happened over the past 10 days, yet there is still a week's combat to go before the 1990 World Champion is crowned. Today is the last round when two tables will be used. Whoever has made it this far will be thinking more of the crown than the prize money. Steve Davis should be there on table one and Stephen Hendry on table two, but in Sheffield the mighty have been known to fall quite regularly.
David Icke introduces the opening sessions of the best-of-25-frames taking place today and tomorrow. Commentators:
Clive Everton and Ray Edmonds.
Green Claws and Iris decide to keep fit and the kitchen table is just what Claws needs to help him. But when they start to water the plants at double speed, Iris realises she'd rather keep fit by riding her bike.

David Icke continues with extended coverage of the World Professional Snooker Championship throughout the afternoon as it moves into the quarter-final stages. Have Jimmy White and John Parrott made it this far? At approximately
2.30pm Snookerbreak David Vine bridges the morning and afternoon sessions in the theatre to look at the other side of snooker, be it entertaining, informative or just simply odd. Including Shot of the Championship and the chance for viewers to win a free weekend in Sheffield to all sessions of the final.
First in a series of in-depth interviews with artists who have made their mark on the music industry. In 1976, a punk group was formed which, although not the founding fathers, became the greatest group of that genre. It was guitarist Mick Jones and bassist Paul Simonon who formed the Clash. Jones gives a revealing interview, with his version of the band's demise. Plus original footage of the group, and Jones with his latest band, Big Audio Dynamite.

A series of six programmes about arguably the most delicious food in the world.
3: Italian cookery expert Valentina Harris features food from north-west Italy. The dairy produce of Lombardy is legendary - cheese and butter make the sumptuous classic Milanese dishes a heart doctor's nightmare. But Milan is also the takeaway capital of Italy - sophisticated fast food for all those high fashion designers too busy to cook. In autumn, neighbouring Piedmont is an epicure's heaven - wine, chocolate and truffles. Will a hearty hike in the Alps of Val d'Aosta provide a respite?
