3Cs Chess Club featured on the primetime BBC 1 television programme "The One Show" (Friday 13 October 2023) after the BBC had visited the club earlier in the year (Thursday 20 July) to film at one of its weekly club nights.

Prior to attending the 3Cs' club, the BBC had also been to one of the local schools where 3Cs' coach Dale James provides regular chess instruction as well as to "Spindles" shopping centre in Oldham where they filmed another set of our young players taking on any willing passers-by who might like to try their luck against "just young kids".  The 3Cs' youngsters never lost a game !!!

3Cs wish to thank everyone concerned with the BBC for all their efforts in producing the film which will certainly provide an excellent boost to junior chess by showing it in such a positive way on national television.
The BBC have very kindly allowed 3Cs to reproduce the section of "The One Show" which featured the club and which can be viewed by clicking onto this panel > > >

And just who did the BBC pick to headline their BBC 1 programme to welcome in the new year of 2024 ?
Rick Astley
!!!       Many of you might ask ..."Why give that a mention on this website ?"
Well, Rick was actually a guest on BBC1's "The One Show" the same night it featured 3Cs back in October
