Check Mate

News today that Radio 4 is to broadcast a short series on chess – a game that perhaps doesn’t easily lend itself to radio. But, as the press release notes, chess made regular appearances on the old Network Three between 1958 and 1964. Sure enough here’s a Radio Times billing from 24 October 1958.

Across the Board with Dominic Lawson can be heard from 30 December . There’ll be more about Network Three on my blog in January.
