David Frost (2014)

Sir David Paradine Frost, OBE was an English journalist, comedian, writer, media personality and television host. After graduating from Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge, Frost rose to prominence in the UK when he was chosen to host the satirical programme That Was the Week That Was in 1962. His success on this show led to work as a host on US television. He became known for his television interviews with senior political figures, among them The Nixon Interviews with former United States President Richard Nixon in 1977, which were adapted into a stage play and film. Frost was one of the "Famous Five" who were behind the launch of ITV breakfast station TV-am in 1983. For the BBC, he hosted the Sunday morning interview programme Breakfast with Frost from 1993 to 2005. He spent two decades as host of Through the Keyhole. From 2006 to 2012 he hosted the weekly programme Frost Over the World on Al Jazeera English and from 2012, the weekly programme The Frost Interview. Frost died on 31 August 2013, aged 74, on board the cruise ship MS Queen Elizabeth, on which he had been engaged as a speaker.

About the David Frost Interview

Hello reddit. David Attenborough here. To help avoid immediate confusion, and so that I can answer as many questions as possible, Philly Harper will be helping me with typing.

However, please rest assured that these answers will be in my own words. We will get a picture up soon.


So as many of you in the UK already know, my latest film, Natural History Museum Alive came out on New Years Day in the UK. I heard about the AMA request and wanted to take this opportunity to stop by and talk with all of you.

I’ve just come away from a talk at Apple where we spoke about the app, and soon I shall be doing a Q&A at the Baftas, where I will be talking about my latest work in 3D.

Keeping all that in mind, we have compiled ~~a short film~~ a special short film especially for reddit telling this story. Watch to the end!

Please, ask away.

We’re here for about 1 hour.
