What is Alex Higgins The People's Champion about?
One man transfixed television viewers during snooker's golden age - Alex 'Hurricane' Higgins.

At times uplifting, but at other moments very sad - this is a rollercoaster journey charting the life of snooker's 'rock and roll star'. Contributors include Jimmy White, Ronnie O'Sullivan, Dennis Taylor, Barry Hearn, Steve Davis, Ray Reardon and members of the Higgins family.
