: Snooker

The destination of the Grand Prix trophy as well as the winner's cheque for £60,000 will be decided as a maximum often frames are played at Preston's Guild Hall-
Last year's LG event at the same venue saw
John Higgins became only the second player after fellow Scot Stephen Hendry to compile a maximum 147 break in a major final. But being the 13th player to achieve the deed also proved unlucky: the "Wizard of Wishaw" lost the match 9-5 to Mark Williams. Taking the title meant the Welshman completed the formidable feat of holding the world, UK, Masters and LG titles simultaneously.
Introduced by Hazel Irvine , with Steve Davis and John Parrott. The commentators are Clive Everton,
Dennis Taylor , Willie Thome and John Virgo. BBCi: uninterrupted coverage available via the red button on the 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.
