Frost on Friday

Synopsis
Current affairs programme presented by David Frost. Not all programmes survive but this 3 DVD set includes General Moshe Dayan discussing his role in the Six Day War, war criminal Baldur von Schirach on his relationship with Hitler, Cardinal Heenan outlining his position on contraception and a highly emotional interview with Conservative politician Enoch Powell. Muhammad Ali is interviewed in New York (during a period when he had been stripped of his title and boxing licence for refusing to be drafted into the Vietnam conflict) and James Callaghan gives a bullish and frank interview in his position as then-Home Secretary. A powerful debate on capital punishment includes contributions from the father of Derek Bentley who was hanged for murder in 1953 (and pardoned three decades after this debate was recorded).
