: World Snooker

Continuing live coverage of the concluding frames of the quarter-final matches from the Crucible Theatre, Sheffield.
Wales took on Scotland at this stage last year, as Matthew Stevens met John Higgins. Level at 4-4 following the opening session, the match was dominated in the second period by Stevens, who made several big breaks. The final session was over quickly, the Welshman booking himself a place in the semi-final against eventual champion Peter Ebdon. Meanwhile, Ronnie O'Sullivan - this year's favourite for the title - looked much less comfortable as he faced fellow Englishman Stephen Lee. Following a tense match in which both players were guilty of errors, O'Sullivan emerged the victor, setting up something of a grudge match with Stephen Hendry.
Introduced by Hazel Irvine and former champions
Steve Davis and John Parrott. With commentary from Clive Everton, Dennis Taylor , John Virgo , Willie Thorne ,
Ray Edmonds and Terry Griffiths.

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.
