Steve Davis and John Parrott join presenter Ray Stubbs at the Wembley Conference Centre to set the scene for the first, best-of-11-frames semi-final in this year's Masters.
The champion for the last two years, Yorkshire's
Paul Hunter , had the better of a tense 6-5 encounter with Scotland's Alan McManus in last year's corresponding match, while 2002's defeated finalist, Welshman
Mark Williams , held off a comeback from London veteran Jimmy White in a nail-biting tie that produced the same scoreline.
Competition from the likes of "Rocket"
Ronnie O'Sullivan , world champion Peter Ebdon , world number one Williams and in-form world number two
Stephen Hendry cannot be underestimated - but if he does reach this stage, can Hunter go on to become the first player since Hendry to win the title three years in succession?

: Trust Me I'm a Politician

Last December's "Cheriegate" affair did little to abate the rampant public cynicism reserved for politicians - a mistrust evidenced in the turnout at the 2001 general election, which was the lowest for more than 80 years. In this documentary, Michael Cockerell talks to figures including Edwina Currie , Max Clifford , Geoffrey Robinson and Neil Hamilton in an effort to see if spin, sleaze and ministerial failure is to blame, or whether the media's sneering political coverage is most at fault.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
