Wogan 1991 Interview with Eastwood on BBC iPlayer

Just a quick reminder that BBC iPlayer is currently showing a series of Best of Wogan shows. Episode 12 is entitled Action Heroes and features Clint's interview from January 1991 which tied in with his latest movie The Rookie. The interview was conducted via a satellite link with Clint in L.A. from a hotel rooftop. I have this entire interview somewhere on a rather old VHS cassette, sadly, this version of the interview is in an edited version, and lasting just a mere 5 mins. It's a shame the BBC don't tend to do a lot more with their excellent iPlayer - why not put up entire episodes in order for people to enjoy interviews in their entirety? 
For anyone who has not seen it, it captures Clint in good, humorous spirits - he also mentions that he will begin filming a new western - which of course went on to be his Oscar winner Unforgiven. At the point of posting this, the programme will be available for the next 3 weeks or so - and probably only available to UK residents. 

Here is the official blurb on Episode 12:
Sir Terry Wogan remembers some memorable moments from the Wogan show. In this episode the guests have all starred in some of cinema's biggest action adventures and the roll call includes Sean Connery, Harrison Ford, Clint Eastwood, Liam Neeson, and Denzel Washington.
