Live Snooker: UK Championship

2011 Day One

About this programme

Coverage of the second most prestigious ranking tournament on the calendar gets under way at the Barbican Centre in York, with John Higgins v Rory McLeod and Ding Junhui v Mark Davis in the best-of-11-frames first-round matches. Last year's final was a thrilling encounter, as Higgins came back from 9-5 down to defeat Mark Williams 10-9 and win the title for the third time, and the Wizard of Wishaw started as favourite against McLeod. Presented by Hazel Irvine, with commentary and analysis by Steve Davis, Dennis Taylor and Ken Doherty.
