New World Symphony

Before I appreciated classical music I remember one of the pieces that got me interested happened during the 1972 World Chess Championship match: Bobby Fischer vs Borris Spasky. I remember it being televised and I remember the introduction to the show played the beginning of the exciting music from what I later found out was the 4th movement of Antonin Dvorak's 9th symphony ['the New World Symphony']
Am I the only one who remembers this? For your enjoyment, some exciting and great music from Dvorak.
