Samantha Geimer

The woman at the centre of the Roman Polanski child sex scandal in 1978 on how her life was affected by that event nearly 40 years ago.

Hardtalk is in New York to speak to the woman at the centre of the decades-old scandal, Samantha Geimer. How has her life been affected by that event nearly 40 years ago?
