: World Snooker

Ray Stubbs introduces live coverage from tonight's best-of-25-frames quarter-finals from the Crucible in Sheffield, where the difference between winning and losing at this stage of the competition is f 39.500.
The quarter-finals are the midpoint of the tournament with the increased number of frames allowing sufficient leeway for the top players to make a poor start and still recover. Last year at this stage, eventual champion Peter Ebdon cruised past Anthony Hamilton 13-6 on his way to a classic semi-final with Matthew Stephens , who overcame 1998 champion John Higgins with relative ease in the other quarter-final in the bottom half of the draw. The games at the top half of the draw were much closer, however, with seven-time winner Stephen Hendry squeezing past 1997's champion Ken Dohertybythe narrowest of margins and Ronnie O'Sullivan eventually beating Stephen Lee 13-10.
Commentary is from Ray Edmonds , Clive Everton ,
Terry Griffiths , Dennis Taylor , Willie Thome 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.
