Bobby Fischer on BBC 2 Friday 15th May 2020

From my friend John Bass All, If you've nothing better to do on Friday night (and who has these days), you might want to watch 'Pawn Sacrifice' on BBC2 at 11:20pm, which apparently, is a dramatization of Bobby Fischer's chess career including the 1972 match versus Spassky.

Re: Alan Fraser?

Alan was due hip operation in Feb /March so I imagine if this happened he will be back at the chess board May / June. He was in a lot of pain hence non playing chess before operation. When fully fit plays over 300 games a season which is amazing for someone in Mid 80's.
