Snooker World Championship on the BBC (Week 1)

Hello all, here’s what I hope will be a useful guide to the BBC’s World Snooker Championship coverage starting on Saturday.  This covers Week 1 of coverage, Week 2 will be added to the blog soon.

Please note – Viewers can also watch live uninterrupted coverage of both tables at the Crucible via the BBC Sport website and connected TV. Dedicated streams will be on hand until Thursday, 28 April, when the tournament goes down to a single table. Eurosport also has extensive coverage of the World Snooker Championships – with full coverage on Eurosport Player.
