Conrad Black on enduring Paxman Newsnight interview

Former media mogul Conrad Black, who was released from prison in Miami in May after serving just over three years for defrauding investors, has been talking to BBC Newsnight.

Black, 67, who controlled the Daily Telegraph in the UK, and US papers including the Chicago Sun-Times, told interviewer Jeremy Paxman he was "proud" of the way he had handled his trial and imprisonment.

He also told Mr Paxman: "I am proud of... actually being able to endure a discussion like this without getting up and smashing your face in."
