: World Snooker

Coverage from the second round of the world championship at the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield.
In round two last year Stephen Lee , who would go on to reach the semi-finals, edged past compatriot and crowd favourite Jimmy White 13-11. The six-times beaten finalist had led 10-7 only for Lee to take four frames in a row.
White dug deep to snatch the 22nd frame, but it was to no avail as Lee won the final two frames of the match. Ken Doherty was involved in another close match against
Graeme Dott. At one point the Irishman was 7-2 down, but regrouped to level the tie at 12-12. A tense 42-minute decider followed, with Doherty coming up trumps to secure an unconvincing passage into the quarter-finals.
Hazel Irvine introduces the action, while Steve Davis and John Parrott provide analysis. Commentary comes from Clive Everton, Dennis Taylor , John Virgo ,
Willie Thorne , Ray Edmonds and Terry Griffiths. BBCi: digital viewers can access extra live coverage of both tables, plus a news and statistics service, via the red button on their handset

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.

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.
