Mozart of Chess: Magnus Carlsen
The CBS 60 Minutes segment as aired on Sunday night to a US and world-wide audience. We strongly advocate switching to full-screen mode by clicking on the icon shown on the right. After that you can lean back and watch the report in full HD, and enjoy the extraordinary quality of these 60 Minutes reports.
The 60 Minutes team with Bob Simon spent almost a week in London at the Chess Classic. They set up a studio above a pizza shop next door and filmed a lot of interviews with people attending the LCC. Of course they could only use tiny bits of the footage in the main segment, but they put some of the material into their 60 Minutes Overtime segment and kindly sent us the following embeds. Once again, maximize to full HD to get full enjoyment of the video.
