BBC: The Master Game Series 6 & 7 Box Set (4 DVDs)
With Jeremy James & William Hartston

The Master Game broke new ground in the 1970s and 1980s when it established itself as the only international chess tournament played for Television. Following its launch by BBC Television in 1975, it became a firm favourite amongst chess fans and grandmasters alike. 

The list of competitors featured is a who's who of famous Grandmasters from the 1970s including Anatoly Karpov, Viktor Korchnoi, Tony Miles, Bent Larsen, Nigel Short, John Nunn, Walter Browne and many more.

Whereas computers have taken over the analysis of games in the modernage, the unique aspect that made of The Master Game so popular was the players voicing their inner thoughts and letting viewers understand their thinking on the game.
