The People's Champions
Alistair McGowan takes a trip through the BBC archives to look at the lives and careers of Alex 'Hurricane' Higgins, Jimmy 'Whirlwind' White and Ronnie 'the Rocket' O'Sullivan.
Snooker superfan Alistair McGowan takes a trip through the BBC archives for an affectionate look at the lives and careers of three of snooker's best-loved and most charismatic stars - Alex 'Hurricane' Higgins, Jimmy 'Whirlwind' White and Ronnie 'the Rocket' O'Sullivan.
We look at the early television appearances that captured each of them before they really hit the big time, chart the ups and downs of their careers and examine programmes ranging from Wogan to Top Gear to get a real sense of why each of this trio were, in their day, known as 'The People's Champions'.
