That was a good interview. I had never heard of this debate with Hitchens, he sounds like a Grade-A *******, to be honest. Why would Heston need to know the neighbouring countries to be for a war that doesn't take place in any of those countries? That's ridiculous. Nevertheless, I'd like to see that interview. I have a hard time grasping the notion that he was humiliated in a debate, at least in a factual manner. I can see him being embarrassed when that wanker told him to keep his hairpiece on. What a classless jerk. After some googling, what made him say that was after Heston thought it was unnecessary to, regarding the neighbouring countries: "taking up valuable network time giving a high-school geography lesson."

This little documentary compilation of interviews was one of a series broadcast not long ago by the BBC. I found it totally by chance. The narrator is Sylvia Simms:

Nice docu... and it is a good site for sharing videos, like youtube. I never knew of this before, and should try a hand in it.

There was a really unusual interview with Chuck Heston on a show called Space Ghost Coast to Coast: Space Ghost was a famous cartoon hero from the sixties; in the nineties - starting in 1994 - someone got the bright idea to place him as the host of an amusing talk show - with real guests on monitors. Chuck, the 1st Oscar-winner on the show, got around to it in the 4th season, on the 12/05/97 aired episode (#54), titled "Dam." Really? Really!

I haven't seen this, unfortunately, but from what I read, it went something like this:

Space Ghost: So your name is Heston? Chuck Heston? Cheston! May I call you “Cheston?”

Charlton Heston: NO! -------- http://billcainonline.com/?paged=14

Also, I found a 23-second clip of this on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rYfaxpHYqW8

These interviews were done kind of tongue-in-cheek and maybe weren't very respectful,
but I also read that by that time (1997), guests like Heston were 'in on the joke' and just went along for the ride.
However, I also get the impression that Heston was actually interviewed by someone else and the footage was
simply placed into the Space Ghost show; the so-called 'interview' is marked by non-sequiturs which suggest
that Space Ghost isn't really interviewing the guest. I'm not that familiar with the show, so I'm not sure... :-?

I've seen the whole clip, I think it was posted here on the forum some years ago. It was pretty awkward. Chuck was classy as always and got some rude remarks/questions and got interrupted when he tried telling a story.

I'm not sure how to embed this since it isn't a youtube link, but here's the Space Ghost video on Dailymotion in its entirety. The Heston "interview" starts at 2:55.

Thanks for that - :lol: I just watched the full interview at Daily Motion and it was actually pretty funny. As I mentioned above, Chuck was indeed in on the joke and he really was speaking to Space Ghost (I thought his footage might have been taken from some other interview, but no, he really was talking to the cartoon character). He understood that the whole thing was ludicrous and even pointless and probably did it just for kicks - his rare chance to do some kind of comedy. That one point when he tried to explain about the ape actors in Planet of the Apes and was interrupted by the strange noises from the cartoon characters was a little awkward & annoying, but I think he sort of expected it; I think he knew ahead of time that the whole thing was going to be irreverent and flippant. I noted that he regarded the cartoon characters with a rather disdainful air - his attempt to instruct them on Shakespeare was hilarious.

Here's an interview that Heston did back in 1996, when he was supporting a senator from Texas, Phil Gramm, so it's all political discussion; he's interviewed by Chris Matthews, a liberal democrat - I noted that Matthews was much less boorish almost 20 years ago and respectful to Heston; he asks Heston at one point how he changed from Democrat to Republican. There are also callers phoning in their questions to Heston. Also - warning - this cuts off abruptly before it ends, but it's fairly long, at 11 minutes:
