La Grand echiquier

Show Summary

La Grand echiquier, or The Grand Chessboard, was a television show that aired on two of France's networks: Channel Two ORTF and Antenne 2, from 1972 to 1986. The show was created and hosted by Jacques Chancel. One guest, usually a prestigious person like actor Lino Ventura or a musician like trumpet player Maurice Andre, would come on the show and stay for about three hours while Chancel interviewed them. The program alternated between the interviews of the main guest, outside reporting, informal discussions, and musical interludes.
