Media Diary: Nixon eh? Excellent
Monday 03 October 2011
It was quite a weekend for Sir David Frost, who on Friday evening interviewed his old foe Donald Rumsfeld on Al Jazeera. The next evening, Frosty (pictured) himself answered questions – from Joan Bakewell on BBC2 to coincide with the showing of Frost/Nixon in which he is played by Michael Sheen. But there is a fresh development on the Nixon story. American actor Harry Shearer (the voice of Mr Burns in The Simpsons) has acquired transcripts of Richard Nixon’s White House exchanges with Secretary of State Henry Kissinger and turned them into a comedy script, which has been bought by Sky Arts. The words of the then leader of the Free World are said to be inadvertently “hilarious” and “jaw-dropping”.
