Tuesday 16 September 2008 9:30-9:45 (Radio 4 FM)


Chris Ledgard presents a series looking at the lives of people who were labelled child prodigies.

Demis Hassabis was once the highest ranked twelve-year old-chess player in the world. He wanted a career in chess and hoped one day to become world champion. Then he gave up playing the game seriously, a decision he doesn't regret. Why does chess have such a hold on so many bright young people? International Masters Bill Hartston and Malcolm Pein join the debate.
