The best snooker coverage with the BBC
I've been watching Snooker for most of my life and the best tournament has to be the World Championship held at the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield. This event lasts for just over a fortnight with the final taking place over the Sunday and Monday of the May Day Bank holiday weekend.

I certainly remember the black ball final of 1985 when Dennis Taylor beat Steve Davis in the deciding frame. A classic that one.

The commentators are certainly well known as well, the best one being "Whispering" Ted Lowe, who retired in 1996. The current team includes Clive Everton, Willie Thorne, John Virgo and former world champions Dennis Taylor and Terry Griffiths.

The presenters of World Championship Snooker over the years include David Vine, David Icke (before he "found" God) and Dougie Donnelly. The current presenters are Hazel Irvine and Ray Stubbs. Steve Davis and John Parrott are the pundits and do some commentating as well.
