Did You Know?

Some of the 20th Century's most notable figures were interviewed for this series, including Martin Luther King, Carl Jung and Bertrand Russell. The programme was usually filmed in a TV studio, but a memo in the BBC archives from producer Hugh Burnett confirms that 'it was not possible to lure Henry Moore to the studio' for Face to Face and the interview took place at his home in Perry Green, Hertfordshire, instead.
