: World Snooker

Seventeen days of top-class snooker reach a climax at
Sheffield's Crucible Theatre tonight as the finalists take to the baize for what should be the decisive session, hoping to grab the £250,000 winner's prize.
In a cracking final last year, Mark Williams won his second world title, defeating Ken Doherty 18-16. After
Sunday night's play Williams was ahead 11-5, but he was given a nasty shock the following day as the Irishman won six consecutive frames to level the tie at 11-11. From then on, every time the Welshman grabbed the advantage Doherty forced the match back to level pegging. At a nerve-jangling 16-16, it was Williams's nerve that held strong as he bagged the last two frames to clinch victory, adding to his triumphs at the UK Championship and the Masters in the same season.

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.
