Live Snooker: UK Championship

Day One

About this programme

Hazel Irvine introduces further coverage of the opening day's first-round matches at the Telford International Centre, where last year's runner-up John Higgins is among the seeds in action, as he faces Stephen Lee. The Wizard of Wishaw was handed a six-month ban this year for failing to report an illegal match-fixing approach, but made a winning return to the sport by triumphing in last month's Euro Players Tour Championship event in Germany. With analysis by Steve Davis and John Parrott, and commentary by Willie Thorne and Dennis Taylor.
