Whicker's World 02: Whicker's New World
A broadcasting legend and one of the most recognisable faces on British television, Alan Whicker worked his own brand of quietly incisive journalism for over fifty years. A consummate interviewer with a famously affable, urbane style, his popular, award-winning documentaries continue to be a significant influence to this day.
This ongoing series of releases will showcase every programme that Whicker made for ITV, in chronological order. Subjects of his scrutiny in this volume – first broadcast in 1969 – include cryogenics, media stardom, swinging singles, wage slavery, old age and more – as well as an unforgettable encounter with the infamous Haitian dictator Papa Doc Duvalier.
Editions included are:
Papa Doc: The Black Sheep
