Exactly on this hour, on this day in 1980, The Embassy snooker final was on TV and being watched by a large contingent of SAS soldiers, held up in the Doctors house, next door. Little did they know that at this time, the prime minister was signing the go code for Operation Nimrod. The date in 1980 was May 5th, but it was actually a monday...and ill tell you today that the same tv programme is on right now. No longer sponsered by Embassy cigarettes, but it is on.
