Ted Heath v Joan Ruddock on nuclear arms in 1983. Not only are both speakers polite, but moderator Alastair Burnet asks only *one* question at the start and his guests then talk for 15 minutes without Burnet speaking again, the debate evolving between them
A wonderful lunch’ with Diana Edwards-Jones, ’s legendary director; her Godson, the brilliant actor Lloyd Owen, soon to be seen as ‘Clive of India’; & my dear friend Lady Maureen Burnet, Sir Alastair’s widow. #priceless
I just wish Alastair Burnet was here to see it. His verdict was always all that mattered to me. But I am obviously grateful for your beyond gracious remarks.
