The 1985 World Snooker Championship Final between Steve Davis and Dennis Taylor is the most thrilling and the most epic of epic matches ever. Hear Steve Davis and Dennis Taylor talk you through the closing moments of the greatest snooker final in history. 18.5 million people stayed up to the early hours of Monday morning to see the conclusion of the final that lasted 14 hours and 50 minutes (over 2-days). One fact that many forget about the final and the achievement of Dennis Taylor is that he was losing 8-0 to the then world number 1 after the morning sessions. In the afternoon, Taylor made a remarkable recovery to end the first day 9-7, taking 6 frames on the trott himself. He squared the match at 11-11 before falling behind 17-15 with the then 3-time World Champion only needing one more frame to win. The rest is history - and Taylor's celebrations are legendary.
