The Interviews: An Oral History of Television

About this Collection

Since 1997, The Interviews: An Oral History of Television has recorded over 900 one-on-one conversations with individuals who have made a significant impact on television – both in front of and behind the camera. The interviews are conducted in a life-history format, starting with the subject's early years and influences. The conversation then moves into their major television work, and concludes with the subject's thoughts about his or her craft, as well as advice to aspiring professionals. Many of the interviews in the collection also explore significant historical topics and events, including the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, the Quiz Show Scandals, the Hollywood Blacklist, September 11, 2001, and more. The Interviews collection is intended as primary source material for future generations, to preserve the stories behind the making of television. View this collection on the contributor's website.
