The Crucible – 21 Years In The Frame (BBC 1997)

I’ve also just uploaded to YouTube this three-part series from 1997, in which David Vine looks back at the first twenty years of the World Snooker Championships staged at the Crucible Theatre (1977 – 1996).

Given that each edition is only thirty minutes, there’s rarely time to dwell in much detail on any match (although they do show all of Alex Higgins’ legendary break from his 1982 semi-final against Jimmy White) but it’s an amiable quick trot through twenty years of snooker history.
