Back to Day 8

Sir David Frost "Angel With A Bushy Beard"



As part of the Alfred Dunhill "Voice" campaign for Spring / Summer 2011 Sir David Frost talks for the first time about his encounter with the "angel with a bushy beard".

Sir David Frost began his career as part of the Cambridge Footlights. Then as co-creator and host of That Was The Week That Was, Sir David became a British household name, going on to host an American version of the show. It was during this period in his career that the world famous Frost/Nixon interview (later to become a BAFTA & OSCAR nominated film) took place -- the interview garnered the largest audience ever achieved for a new interview in the U.S. Between 1993 and 2005 Sir David presented over 500 hundred editions of Breakfast With Frost -- widely regarded as the most authoritative weekly news interview. Sir David remains the only person to have ever interviewed 8 British prime ministers and 7 US presidents.
