By the end of this evening, the quarter-final line-up will be complete. Ray Stubbs introduces live coverage of the remaining second-round matches at Sheffield's Crucible.
Last year, Anthony Hamilton caused a major upset at this stage with his surprise 13-9 defeat of the then world number one Mark Williams. While Hamilton secured a comfortable victory over the Welshman, he confessed to an attack of nerves in the final frames of the match, on account of his defeat by Williams in the final of the China Open. This year, however, has seen changes of fortune for both players: while Williams has his eye on a hat-trick of major titles after winning both the UK championship and Masters, Hamilton is not appearing in this year's tournament.
Commentary by Ray Edmonds , Clive Everton ,
Terry Griffiths , Dennis Taylor , Willie Thorne and John Virgo.

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.
