I just watched the full interview of Christopher Hitchens by Jeremy Paxman and I was hugely impressed by both men: by Hitch's indomitable courage and honesty, and by Paxo's humanity and kindness. Two highly intelligent, decent, sincere men, talking honestly and frankly together about things that really matter. I found it especially good to see the obvious respect in Paxo's eyes. So very different from the way he is when frying politicians. You sense that, for once, he feels he has met an equal, whom he can respect
You can see it on iPlayer here
I don't know whether iPlayer is barred outside Britain, but I really really hope everyone here can see it. I think it is one of the most moving half hours of television I have ever seen.
