Brand Pot Black 1969

In 1969, the BBC launched the Pot Black tournament at the BBC Studios in Birmingham, which proved to be very successful in helping put Snooker back into public view. The BBC began broadcasting in colour and were looking for programmes that could exploit this new technology. The programme was first aired on 23 July 1969, on BBC2. Pot Black and colour television played a large part in the popularisation of the modern game. Pot Black helped transform Snooker from a minority sport with just a handful of professionals into one of the most popular sports in the UK.
