    And to make matters #@!**@# worse, they're showing the same bleeding programme on the RB channel as they are on the RB Channel!!!
    I'm afraid I've all but given up on the BBC, with their bits & pieces chopping and changing coverage, much happier with the eurosport player coverage.

      Do you happen to know the current email address for the snooker? I know it's all about damn twittering now to contact them, but I don't use it.

        Don't know about email, but phone is 03700 100222 if that's any use.

          I'm very tempted but I'm not sure it's worth the cost.

            Which? The phone call, or the eurosport player?

              Ha! Either as it happens.

              I tried snooker@bbc.co.uk as a guess and I haven't had a failed delivery notice yet.

                  Wow, the Sam Baird interview was awkward to say the least. Very twitchy and no eye contact.

                    He's better than the clown at the Welsh open - whoever he is. Earlier today he was heaping praise on John Higgins. Why? Because when he came back to the match after getting his bow tie sorted out, he noticed he may be in the eyeline of a player on the neighbouring table so waited for him to play his shot before walking out. For some reason this made him an amazing person and 'consummate professional'.

                    Oops - wrong thread.

                        Lovely century from Jimmy. Can't remember the last time I saw him make one on TV. Must be at least a decade ago.

                          Fair dues, Brecel's pulled off some cracking snookers here, not sure how many, but it must be half a dozen or so now and he's got 2 of the 3 misses needed....

                            What did the Robertson White match finish at? The BBC have chosen to show the same 12 hours of 80s music on two channels instead.

                            Never mind. 4-1, which is the exact score I predicted immediately after Jimmy's century to level the match.

                              It was a particularly nice 1 though.

                                Jack Lisowski beaten again , doesn't appear to be playing to his potential at all .

                                Always the player that people talk about as being an under achiever but someone who could rise
                                Up the rankings . Struggling for form at the moment .
                                Still trying to pot as many balls as i can !
