Arrow PotBlack

A Satanic Baptism ..
Snooker is a cue sport played on a table covered with a green cloth or baize, with pockets at each of the 4 corners and in the middle of each of the long side cushions..The game is played using a cue and 22 snooker balls: one white cue ball, 15 red balls worth one point each, and 6 balls of different colours: yellow (2 points), green (3), brown (4), blue (5), pink (6) & black (7).. The red balls are initially placed in a triangular formation, and the other coloured balls on marked positions on the table known as "spots"..As generally understood, the person accusing (the "pot") is understood to share some quality with the target of their accusation (the "kettle").. The pot is mocking the kettle for a little soot when the pot itself is thoroughly covered with it...

Maximum Break..

The BBC began broadcasting in colour in 1967 and was looking for programmes that could exploit this new technology..Broadcasting snooker, then still a minor sport, was the brainchild of the then controller of BBC Two, David Attenborough.. The first Pot Black was held in 1969 at the BBC Studios in Birmingham.. The programme first aired on 23 July 1969, on BBC2.. The event featured 8 players, namely Gary Owen, Jackie Rea, John Pulman, Ray Reardon, Fred Davis, Rex Williams, Kingsley Kennerley and John Spencer.. The event continued until 1986, by which time more and more snooker events were being televised and the Pot Black format was becoming outdated.. It returned in 1990, but was discontinued after the 1993 event..The events were recorded in a single day at the BBC Studios in Birmingham, but the matches were shown in half-hour programmes over the winter..Pot Black was originally hosted by Alan Weeks.. In the 80s David Icke took over until 1986... the planet gone mad?.You sent us to camp..They made us sing..I was working in LA..You have enslaved him..The only thing they care about is the stock and whether that stock is up or down!..
