Radio Times: Vote for the greatest broadcast interview of all time

September 9th, 2011Posted by in Broadcasting, Journalism, Multimedia

Inspired by the BBC College of Journalism’s Art of the Interview season, the Radio Times is calling for people to vote for the greatest broadcast interview of all time.

Contenders include Robin Day’s 1959 ITN interview with the Japanese Foreign Minister, in which Day was accused of “treachery”; drunken antics from both sides when Bill Grundy interviewed the Sex Pistols on ITV in 1976; more drunken antics from both sides when Francis Bacon took Melvyn Bragg out for lunch in 1985; David Frost’s “When the President does it, that means it is not illegal” interview with Richard Nixon; Sarah Palin’s excruciating inability to name a newspaper she reads when asked by Katie Couric on the 2008 campaign trail; and Adam Boulton’s lively spat with Alastair Campbell during the tense 2010 general election negotiations.
