Sir David Frost 7.4.39 – 31.8.13

British broadcaster Sir David Frost has died.

He began his career at the cutting edge of television satire and went on to interview some of the most famous people of his generation, becoming friends with many of them on the way. . .

. . . He was the only journalist to have interviewed all seven British prime ministers who held office between 1964 and 2010 and every US president who had occupied the White House between 1969 and 2008.

“John Smith said to me, ‘You have a way of asking beguiling questions with potentially lethal consequences.’

“I would be content to have that on my tombstone.”

In this clip he is interviewed about interviewing.
