Shelley and David

Shelley with David Frost in 1978

Shelley once sat down for a talk with David Frost, the renowned English journalist who became famous for interviewing political figures, among them Richard Nixon whom he interviewed in 1977 - post resignation (which was the basis of the 2006 play Frost/Nixon and became a feature film in 2008). It was probably aired as part of Headliners with David Frost, a six-week miniseries which was aired in 1978. Other guests, it seems, included Truman Capote, John Travolta and ex-CIA director Richard Helms.
