: World Snooker

The second semi-final gets under way this evening at the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield.
It was at this stage last year that Ken Doherty produced one of the greatest comebacks in Crucible history to beat England's Paul Hunter 17-16 and reach the final. With the Irishman trailing 15-9 at the start of play, Hunter only needed two frames to clinch the tie, but Doherty showed remarkable resolve to take the first five frames of the session. The Englishman had victory in his sights when he moved 16-14 ahead, yet Doherty dug deep once more to produce a sensational finish. After the match, the relieved victor revealed that he used the fearfrom his near-collapse against John Higgins in the previous round to spur him on to this amazing win. Ominously for Doherty, his opponent in the final, Mark Williams , had made short work of England's Stephen Lee 17-8 in the other semi-final.
Hazel Irvine introduces the play, with commentary by Clive Everton , Dennis Taylor , Willie Thorne and John Virgo. www.bbc.co.uk/snooker

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.
