Face to Face
7 April 2008 | by See all my reviews

I was the creator, and Producer, of the BBC programme Face to Face.

It is a legend that we made Gilbert Harding cry. He gulped, when asked about his mother, but he was sweating from nervousness and the heat of the studio lighting. He did not cry.

Nor are the comments about Lord Reith correct. Freeman found him an almost pathetic man, constantly asking for reassurance with his answers. His daughter's recent book concerning her father explains it all.

John Freeman's greatest disappointment, he said at the time, was the interview with Otto Klemperer. This, in my opinion was not Freeman's fault. Klemperer was old and unwell when he came to the BBC studios for the recording.

The best, in my opinion, was with Professor Jung, who had dreamt of himself addressing a large audience in a square. He believed that my letter of invitation to take part in Face to Face was a precognition relating to that dream.
