Chess on Tyne Tees Television

Tyne Tees Television are going to run a news feature about Sophie's participation in the European Chess Championships. We are filming tomorrow for an expected slot on the 6 o'clock news on Wednesday evening.

The coverage will be shot in the drawing room at Matfen Hall hotel in Northumberland, where the oak panelled walls and roaring fire should provide a atmospheric backdrop to the chess imagery.

The planned format is an interview with Sophie, a game between her and the reporter, and an interview with myself as the 'chess guru'. We'll try to get a copy of the footage for the blog.

Meantime, we are looking to borrow an ornate chess set to complete the scene; any offers, please drop me an email on roger at 21thoughts dot com.
