Lord Longford (Character)
from Longford (2006) (TV)
Talk Show Host: Today, people, we are *privileged* to have with us a former Labor cabinet minister and leader of the House of Lords, a Knight of the Garter and 7th Earl of Longford, who's come to talk with us about a book he's just written entitled "Saints." Frank Pakenham - Lord Longford - welcome to the show.
Lord Longford: Thank you very much.
Talk Show Host: So many questions to ask you, such a long and *distinguished* career. But I'm gonna start with the book. What prompted you to write it?
Lord Longford: As a lifelong Christian and scholar, I've always been interested in ideas of sanctity. But more than that, I think it was probably the entirely selfish desire to spend a little time with my heroes.
Talk Show Host: Your "heroes"?
Lord Longford: Yes, that's what the saints are - my heroes, friends, intercessors.
Talk Show Host: [not really interested] *Interesting!* Right, the time has just gone 2:15, the subject is saints, we're gonna take some calls. David, you're through to Lord Longford. What's your question about..."the saints"?
Male Caller: [angry] Actually my question isn't about the saints. I just want to know how your *esteemed* guest can look himself in the mirror each morning?
Talk Show Host: I'm assuming this is a question about Myra Hindley?
