been interested in political interviewing after hearing ken livingstone being interviewed on bbc recently. at the london film festival they've been showing frost/nixon which is a highly dramatized version of the following interviews, 4 years after he resigned:

nixon getting philosphical. he looks crushed at two points: "no purpose", and at the end, when asked when it was punishment enough: "oh probably not".

it's always interesting to listen to politicians once they have nothing to lose, looking at today's us election coverage, nobody knows what these people's characters really are.

and this is the famous: "if the president does it, it isn't illegal". which is right, by definition, but has been famously taken out of context many times. minute 2:40 onwards

and this is my writeup of nixon price controls for my 1st class
