This DVD is conducted by chess legend Vlastimil Hort, who himself belongs to the same generation as Bobby Fischer, met no less than eight world champions over the board. In the early 60s he crossed swords with Mihail Tal, and at the end of the eighties he was sitting over the board from Garry Kasparov. Between the two there were meetings with chess legends Botvinnik, Petrosian, Smyslov, Spassky, Fischer and Karpov. On this DVD the Czech German grandmaster looks back to these encounters and devotes a chapter to each of the world champions, Thus we have eye witness accounts which form a personal gallery of chess world champions, during which we get not only a presentation of the games but also details and stories of things which happened off the board and in the wings, as it were. So, for example, Hort tells us about his phone call from Botvinnik, about Bobby Fischers frenemy and describes the shadowy figure of the political minder.
