For me it's easy. The most incredible, astounding and affecting interviews I ever saw or heard were the interviews conducted by James Day on KQED-TV in San Francisco in 1963 with Eric Hoffer, the "longshoreman philosopher". Hoffer's writing is regrettably mostly unknown nowadays, but what a gigantic personality he was and how powerful his writing is!
I would have included Dennis Potter on the South Bank Show in 1994, shortly before his death, sipping liquid morphine for pain and blasting Rupert Murdoch for his "pollution of the British press." http://bit.ly/3LIYgI
Yet another list for people who know nothing of "TV history" other than the obvious and the new.Michael Jackson? Oprah? More Michael Jackson? Give me a break.Why didn't they include 10 Michael Jackson interviews?Jeff
Nothing with Dick Cavett? Pfui!
