John Freeman was a celebrated soldier, politician, TV journalist and diplomat but a most private of men. This was symbolised by the famous BBC TV interview series of the 1960s Face to Face where he sat with his back to the camera. Hugh Purcell spent years trying to solve the enigma of this ‘Very Private Celebrity’ and in conversation with Sue Cook he shows extracts of the TV interviews with Edith Sitwell, Tony Hancock and others, discusses the art of the TV interview and reveals the truth about one of the great Britons in the second half of the last century.
“A fascinating biography of a remarkable – and mysterious – man.” Daily Mail
