If we can back up a request for this with the figures above then surely someone will sit up and take notice. Surely this is a chance not to be missed? I doubt we could get chess back on to TV without first a mini series like this. Something like 6 or 7 10 minute slots, perhaps leading to a regular monthly? slot covering major championships with British interest?
Worth a thought at least.
