The first video is a moving tribute to chess and its benefits from a young girl who has a physical handicap. That is followed by the history of the Turkish Chess Federation's TV advertising campaign, which began as a public service broadcast in 2005 but has (since 2006) been taken up by the TSF main sponsor, Turkiye Is Bankasi.
