Book Overview

David Frost is probably the most diverse, long-lasting and consistently innovatory performer the television age has produced. From his earliest days on That Was The Week That Was - the show which turned television in a completely new direction - to his later interviews of presidents and prime ministers, he has never been far from the centre of events.

In the first part of his autobiography, he gives his own account of his childhood as the son of a Methodist minister, his appearances with the Cambridge Footlights, and the foundation of London Weekend Television and the business interests that have made him, in the words of one commentator, a 'one-man conglomerate'. But it is by his interviewing that Frost has made his greatest mark. The encounters he presents here, with figures as diverse as Robert Kennedy, Muhammad Ali, Enoch Powell and the Prince of Wales, show him to be one of television's most incisive interviewers. They also illuminate some of the greatest questions of his time - drugs, racism, the decline of religious faith - and capture the moods of Britain and America in the 1960s.

Nobody who reads this wonderfully entertaining book can fail to be impressed by David Frost's energy and the impact he had on public life in the 1960s on both sides of the Atlantic. There emerges from it a figure who was not only made by his times, but in part made them.
