Dominic Lawson hosts chess series

The BBC announced today that MCC player and Hamilton-Russell regular Dominic Lawson is hosting a radio 4 series on chess, Across The Board.

The contibutors include Lennox Lewis, Rachel Reeves MP, Hou Yifan, John Healy, and Natan Sharansky.

The series will begin on 30 December at 1.45pm, and run for a week.

Some might argue it is long overdue as it is the first BBC radio series dedicated to chess since one that ran from 1958 until 1964 on Network Three.
