Most ill-natured BBC interview released


A BBC Home Service broadcast later described as the most ill-natured interview ever has been released by the British Library, reports the Guardian.

The 1953 radio encounter between novelist Evelyn Waugh and three BBC questioners was later fictionalised by Waugh in his 1957 novel The Ordeal of Gilbert Pinfold in which Pinfold says: “They tried to make an ass of me. I don’t believe they succeeded.”
