His showdown with Richard Nixon has inspired a hit play, an Oscar-nominated film and been voted the greatest broadcast interview ever. But Sir David Frost says he is more proud of another television encounter.

The veteran broadcaster told the Radio Times that his chat with another US President, George Bush Snr, ranked as his own favourite.

Sir David, 72, said: "Although we'd never met before, within 10 or 15 minutes he was talking just so frankly about his family and the daughter he lost through leukaemia."
