Go back to the mid 90s, and that interview with Diana, Princess of Wales. It was unmissable TV: the audience was massive, the repeats of parts or all of the programme numerous. The interviewer was Martin Bashir. You won’t have seen him on the Beeb, or any other UK broadcaster, for a while.
That’s because Bashir has moved across the North Atlantic: in 2005, he began a stint for ABC. That has just finished, and he will soon be appearing on cable broadcaster MSNBC, hosting a one hour afternoon slot. Looks like an interesting opportunity for the former BBC man.
