Who said chess on the radio couldn’t be exciting?

And who’d believe it’s now 30 years since we huddled round the wireless while Spassky, Kasparov and Ovett took on the Bishop’s Pair, the notorious Botvinnick, and of course the water jump?

It’s a real blast from the past here as Jon E Parker & The Sessionaires take a new look at a much-loved oldie, the theme from the long defunct BBC show Cross Country Chess, brought thrillingly up to date for the 21st century’s all-action sports fan. Extreme sports? You betcha! Altogether now: CHESS!!
