I have now received a reply from the BBC. They are keen to have more chess, and to use players from the Gameknot site. However they want to "spice it up a little". They have the following ideas for chess programmes, I would be interested to hear from players prepared to help,-
1. Underwater chess.
Chess played on the bottom of the deep end of a swimming pool.
2. Sky Chess
Sky drivers pass around a pocket chess set while in free fall
3. Strictly come chess
Dancers have to pass a pocket set between themselves, playing moves, without the judges noticing
4. Strip chess(for late night viewing only)
Every time you take an opponent's piece they have to take an item of clothes off
Please message me if you feel you can help with any of these projects, or if you have any other ideas for combining chess with other activities.
1. Underwater chess:
They all drowned
2. Sky chess:
People on the ground were killed, because they got pieces on their heads falling (not to mention a chess board)
3. Strictly come chess:
Here there was first strip chess, after that they called it come chess
4. Strip chess:
People were wearing like 20 different pieces of clothes, so..... no one looked anymore.
