The interview was recorded in 1972 but only transmitted, in shortened form, because of the ‘three day week’ and the restriction on broadcasting hours at the time. Some six months later Dr Bronowski died. This version is the first time that interview was shown in its entirety and, as Michael Parkinson remarks, “there are many reasons for doing so. One is that what he has to say has as much relevance now as then, another that I believe it to be the testament of a rare human being and also because, although I haven’t got a favourite interview, I shall forever remember this meeting”.
