Here are classic matches such as those between Taylor and Ray van Barneveld and, further back, darting duels involving legends like Eric Bristow, Jocky Wilson, John Lowe, Leighton Rees, and many more. The secrets behind Taylor's darts domination are revealed, Andy "The Viking" Fordham tries to remember the night he won the world championship, and other revelations, including why being brainy won't make you a good darts player!
