With RICHARD BAKER and Weather
DAVID FROST talks to Tennessee Williams
- a rare television appearance by the American playwright.
Williams talks freely and intimately about his alcoholism, ' I'm just on myself now'; his philosophy, ' that romanticism is absolutely essential '; his God, ' I think he has odd moments of compassion'; and his loves, ' I don'want to be involved in some subject for scandal but I've covered the waterfront.'
He explains the relationship between his life and his writing and discusses excerpts from A Street-car Named Desire, Camino Real, and The Rose Tattoo performed by JESSICA TANDY, MAUREEN STAPLETON, and ELI WALLACH.
This programme is in sharp cpntrast to the first of the series with the Burtons. Frost extracts a very personal interview from Tennessee Williams. He is a soft, timid man : the power of his writing, in the excerpts we hear, contrasts remarkably with the reticence of their author.

Six true stories of people who survived against all odds 4: Doing a Perish
They call it the Never-Never-Land -because people never, never go there. Bob Ritchie certainly hadn'meant to go there. He lost his way while gliding and was forced to crash-land somewhere in the millions of acres of scorched desert and bush surrounding the small town of Alice Springs in central Australia.
He had no food and no water, in temperatures that soared as high as 140°F. An intensive air search had been mounted - but 50 miles away. And after two days even that would be abandoned because out there 48 hours is reckoned to be the limit.
Bob Ritchie's is just one of the many stories from this rugged country, where anyone who strays off 'the bitumen' (the only made-up road) stands a pretty good chance of ' doing a perish.'
Produced by DAVID GERRARD A co-production with the Australian Broadcasting Commission
