Here's a chess show that you may have missed.
ChessTV (formerly World Chess News) is a half-hour long TV-show about chess, aired weekly on local channels in Sweden and on the Internet. The ChessTV team consists of five siblings from Stockholm, Sweden, currently in the ages between 21 and 14. Adriana, Antonia and Amelia Krzymowska (23-20) and Alfred and Albert Krzymowski (18 and 16) created the idea and concept of the show. They do a good job with it. Check it out:
