This evening's episode (at 7:30; repeated on Friday night at 10:30) is a pristine rebroadcast of an interview I did a little while ago with famed photographer Annie Leibovitz. We talked about her new book of photos, the massive and moving A Photographer's Life: 1990-2005, as well as her very influential magazine work. I found her to be disarmingly down-to-earth: an immensely gratifying person to interview.
Also in this show is a "Wandering Josh" in which -- overcoming daunting obstacles -- I managed to get an on-camera interview with one of my favorite actresses, Helen Mirren, when she was feted at the Mill Valley Film Festival. Dame Helen looked fabulous; I looked just okay, but what can you do?
