Ideas Roadshow is an award-winning multimedia initiative dedicated to harnessing the benefits of modern technology to explore ideas in thoughtful and seriously-entertaining formats by highlighting a variety of expert perspectives through documentary films, videos, books, and podcasts.

Coming soon: THE STORY OF CHESS: a 4-part documentary series which will be released this fall together with a book of “Chessays” by physicist-turned-filmmaker Howard Burton.

The idea behind our chess project is to present a comprehensive array of the broad relevance of chess across a wide range of times and places touching on cultural history, the nature of competitiveness, artificial intelligence, chess variants, gender issues and much more in an attempt to comprehensively address the question of what makes the game so unique. Visit the related film page, here, for more details.
