Sir David Frost to sail with Cunard

For those disappointed by seeing little sun this summer, there’s a chance to see Frost instead! Those travelling with Cunard on Queen Mary 2’s seven-night Southampton to New York crossing on July 27 will be able to enjoy several presentations from broadcasting legend Sir David Frost, the only person to have interviewed the last seven Presidents of the United States and the last seven Prime Ministers.

Sir David is no stranger to Cunard, having travelled with the company several times over the years – most recently on a sector of QM2's World Voyage. He also interviewed Nelson Mandela live for the BBC from QE2 in Cape Town in 1998.

During the crossing, Sir David will give a lecture called ‘Interviews I Shall Never Forget’ which is a cascade of memories and hilarious anecdotes. There will also be a Q&A conducted by entertainment director Keith Maynard, who will also introduce the film ‘Frost/Nixon’.

Sir David Frost’s activities during his career have been so diverse that he has been described as a “one man conglomerate.” It is easy to see why: host and co-creator of ‘That Was the Week That Was,’ producer of countless television programmes, author of 17 books; producer of eight films (including ‘Rogue Trader’ with Ewan McGregor and Anna Friel), publisher, lecturer, impresario and the joint founder of London Weekend Television and TV-am. Not to mention the fact he is, perhaps, the best known television interviewer in the world.
