MGR Interview to BBC

September 23, 2009
On his way back from Film Festival held in Moscow Russia, MGR was interviewed in London BBC. The interview duration was 17 minutes. MGR was interviewed by Krishnamurthy and MGR was accompanied by Actress Latha.

You can clearly see the difference of who dominates in the talk show right from the beginning. You can also feel how intelligently MGR uses his words and how quickly and shrewdly reacts to some of the questions.

In one particular question MGR narrates his life history under 4 minutes without any stumbling, the speech flow was excellent. His knowledge in Politics (freedom movement) Cinema and people in particular are exhibited in his speech as usual.

When I heard this speech for the first time I noticed the clarity of the sound. This talk show was recorded in 1974, I cannot believe this record is 35 years old rather appeared to be taped a year back. The very mention is the voice of MGR, crystal clear than in his films of those days.

The restriction in YouTube upload is 10 minutes I had to edit this speech into two parts. First part is embedded here.
