I only saw one episode of the show - featuring Roger Moore and I must admit that I was impressed and delighted to watch it. The interview was rather an elegant conversation between two friends; Brigitte asked Roger as well about his film career as about his charity work for Unicef. None of them seemed tense or tired so the conversation was very interesting, and Roger, who usually doesn't like to talk much about his private life, this time was very opened and talked about his family and marriage. He elaborated widely about his early acting days; about the three years spent in the army (when he was stationed in Schleswig in 1946, and used to go to Denmark to bring some food and brandy); about his first encounter with Elizabeth Taylor and Van Johnson in `The Last Time I Saw Paris' and the first bad review he got for `Diane'; about his Saint and Bond days (including many funny anecdotes, like f.e. saying: `My name is Bond, Brooke Bond' instead of the famous line, on the set of `The Man with the Golden Gun' at 3 a.m.); and about his most recent work for Unicef, as well as about some main problems against which Unicef fights - lack of water, lack of food, the use of land mines, and children sexual abusement. In the middle of the show somebody knocks on the door, `It must be champagne' - says Brigitte; `Let me get it' - replies Roger, opening the door and disappearing behind them. Suddenly we hear a very loud noise of two people fighting - Brigitte pretends she's very surprised and worried, and so was I. Then Roger, holding champagne in one hand, walks into the room and with THIS great smile on his face says: `Looks like the party's starting'. Now, that was really stunning, I just loved it. The show lasted circa 60 minutes, but it seemed like if it was much shorter
it was so very engaging. I don't know how about the rest of episodes but
this one - thanks to Roger Moore - was just great.
