: A review by Waldemar Januszczak of The Guardian 1979
The fascinating thing about BBC's Mastergame is the way in which our
chess-masters are made to think aloud before each move, a development which

us all, that part of the mind which clamours for the chance to get in its
tuppence worth, is first pampered and then frustrated.
