If not Oprah interviewing, who would you like to have seen?

Who might, in your opinion, have done a better job?
For myself, I would have liked to have seen Andrew Neil in the interviewer's chair.

Piers Morgan. 🤪

it wasn't an interview. It was a pre arranged staged event. They would never have arranged to be interviewed

John Humphreys

Yes, Andrew Neil, or Paxman.

Andrew Marr.

I read somewhere that it was a conversation .....

Any interviewer who was unbiased and would ask and insist on answers to the Difficult questions that they would prefer not to answer. However, this would never happen.

Are there any probing and impartial interviewers in the U.S.?
(I ask out of sheer ignorance!)

Ian Hislop.

Or, indeed, anyone.

If it had been a few years ago Michael Parkinson

or perhaps Mrs Merton.

It really all depends what you wanted from the interview - I guess M and H bore that in mind when agreeing.

Callistemon, you beat me to it, Mrs. Merton

Andrew Neil

James O'Brien

Shinamae Tue 09-Mar-21 18:55:04

Definitely Jeremy Paxman

ixion Tue 09-Mar-21 18:59:07

Would Robin Day (John Knott Falklands interview) still cut it, do you suppose?

Urmstongran Tue 09-Mar-21 19:00:47

Any one of us I think!
