David Frost interviews Muhammad Ali

First transmitted in 1974, Sir David Frost interviews legendary boxing champion and former World Heavyweight title holder, Muhammad Ali. During the interview Frost presses Ali on a number of topics, particularly his forthcoming title fight with opponent George Foreman who Ali says has two chances of winning - 'slim and none'. As the interview progresses Ali talks about his religious faith, his thoughts on the civil rights movement and integration before ending with a characteristically poetic view on how he would like to be remembered.
