Series Description
"JOHN CALLAWAY interviews outstanding Americans and world-renowned figures who rarely sit for intimate, often intense and humorous, one-on-one television interviews. The hour-long, in-depth conversations result in carefully drawn, multi-dimensional portraits of public figures as diverse as Mike Wallace, Dr. Jonas Salk, and Howard Cosell. The subjects talk not only about their work, but about their private lives, personal feelings, and beliefs. "After Mike Wallace was interviewed by 25-year news veteran John Callaway, he admitted that he said things about himself that he had not intended to reveal. He spoke openly of a tragedy that changed the direction of his career in his mid-forties. He described the animosity and suspicion with which he was greeted by colleagues upon his return to journalism after a hiatus in commercials, soap operas, and even a brief stint on Broadway. Wallace analyzed and defended the expose techniques used for '60 Minutes' investigations. He expounded on his life philosophies, views on religion, and how he would like to be remembered. "JOHN CALLAWAY INTERVIEWS is a series that allows viewers to see how usually inaccessible and highly influential people think. The INTERVIEWS reveal both the fallibilities and the characteristics that make for greatness in extraordinary people."--1981 Peabody Awards entry form.
