A wry and affectionate look at Britain's underground enthusiasts. Ask them what first dragged them down and they are as likely to discourse upon Victorian sewers as upon Rupert Bear finding a trapdoor in the lawn. Robin grew bored selling Skodas and purchased a coal mine. David bought a plot in a catacomb and invited his friends to be buried there with him. "You sometimes get the feeling that the whole of Britain is hollow. And that you could fall into something just by walking in the road." ProducerGeoff Dunlop
(The film at 12.30am is also being shown as part of the Going Underground season.)
Despite the spread of big-money snooker tournaments throughout the world, there can still only be one world champion, and tonight he will be celebrating victory in the most prestigious event of them all. Stephen Hendry is the defending champion, having beaten the eternal " bridesmaid" Jimmy White a year ago. But Hendry has been out of form lately and White entered the competition without a win this year.
Tonight the two-day,
35-frame final will be fought to a finish on BBC2. At the other extreme to last year's one-sided
18-5 match, fans will never forget the early-hours tension of 1985, when the last ball of the last frame gave Dennis Taylor victory over Steve Davis. This year, though, Taylor was a first-round loser.
Followed by Video Nation People from all over Britain record their everyday lives.
As snooker coverage Is live, subsequent programme times may vary.
