The overriding memory of the 1985 World Snooker
Championship was that final frame between Steve Davis and Dennis Taylor, which was decided on the very last ball - the black. But spare a thought for the organisers who had to entertain the Crucible Theatre audience when both semi-finals finished early. Their answer was an exhibition match between Ray Reardon, one of the beaten semi-finalists, and John Virgo.

A view of world history in 13 parts by JOHN ROBERTS 4: The World's Debate
One great civilisation tested, penetrated and shaped
Christian Europe while it was still in the making - Islam. Gibbon called the conflict between them 'The World's Debate'; it went on for centuries.
John Roberts describes the sometimes fruitful, sometimes bitter interaction of the two civilisations. In Sicily Christians and Muslims lived - for a time - in fruitful co-existence, but in Palestine the crusades marked what many see as the first wave of Western colonial expansion, and in Spain the peaceful exchange between civilisations and bitter conflict reached levels greater than anywhere else. When the Moors were expelled from Spain, Europe embarked on her world conquests - marked far more than she knew by her struggle with Islam. Film cameramen
