We the undersigned petition the BBC top cats to bring back the the National Telly Institution that is Big Break to it's true home, the primetime Saturday night telly slot. Since it's demise in 2002 there has been a noticeable hole in the TV listings. Where once there was light-hearted, snooker-related japery, now there is Celebrity Pop Factor and Big Brother Jungle 34. It's time for it's formidable return! With a new lick of paint and a fresh new presenter to replace the cheesy, cringe-worthy Jim Davidson (Peter Kay anyone not Vernon Kay though) Big Break could well return to it's glorious position in telly's hierarchy. There could be new snooker challenges, more trick shots, celebrity players, the possibilities are endless. If given a full hour this programme could form part of the BBCs flagship programming alongside such titans as Doctor Who and Top Gear, both of which are enjoying higher popularity than ever after their re-introduction. The appeal of a greater Big Break extends to all ages. Small kids will be engrossed and mesmerised by John Virgo's trick shots. The older generations can marvel at the skill of the pros. Everyone can enjoy the light-hearted entertainment on show. A weekly family treat that appeals to everyone. It could go so far as to help society as a whole. Kids brought up in tough areas could see these wonderful professionals and see snooker as a way out of crime, drugs and other bad things like taking sweeties. Top telly bosses have been announcing left, right and centre how they're going to make telly better, so what do they do Come up with the same format shows and put them head to head! For every 'Britain's got talent' there's a 'When will I be Famous'. For every 'How do you solve a problem like Maria' there's a 'Grease is the Word'. Enough is enough! The BBC, now more than ever, need a programme to freshen up their stale and cruddy line up and Big Break, with an extended slot and a revamp, would be precisely the tonic needed! So, the time has come for us to rally together, apply pressure and bring back our beloved Big, say goodnight John.... Goodnight John
