"Presented by Jeremy James with expert analysis from Leonard Barden and, later, Bill Hartston, The Master Game was highly regarded for its innovative style, in which a display board with animated figurines and move notation, shown centre-left of screen, was accompanied by footage of the players cogitating, their thoughts during the game heard in voice-over."
Many of the games are available on Youtube

If you’ve even a slight interest in chess and you can get past the haircuts it’s an entertaining insight into the minds of some of the great players of the time.
