Panel from Moscow

A special edition of Question Time, the BBC's premier political programme, was broadcast from Moscow on Thursday, 30 March 2006. Host David Dimbleby was joined for the interactive debate by chess champion-turned-politician Garry Kasparov, British foreign minister Douglas Alexander MP, Russian deputy foreign minister Grigory Karasin, economist Andrei Illarionov, Natalia Narochnitskaya of the Motherland Party, and industrialist Igor Yurgens. The debate is very animated and controversial – must watch.

Hannon Russell interviews Garry Kasparov

One of the most anticipated publishing events of the year is the release of the new book by Garry Kasparov. Published by Everyman Chess, it is the fifth volume in the series entitled Garry Kasparov on My Great Predecessors. On March 13, we had the opportunity to interview him in New York City. Accompanied by Mark Donlan and Carsten Hansen, we arrived at 3 PM. We were greeted by Kasparov, his wife, and his agent, Owen Williams. During the interview, Garry was animated and focused, discussing his new book with vigor and intensity, pouring his energy into the discussion as if he were doing battle – and winning – against a rival over the board.
