Reelin’ In The Years Productions and Paradine Productions are delighted to announce that RITY is now the exclusive agent for clip sales worldwide for Paradine’s rights to The Sir David Frost Archive.
For over 50 years, Sir David Frost conducted thousands of in-depth interviews with the world’s leading politicians, celebrities, musicians and comedians which were aired by numerous broadcasters around the globe, and Paradine controls the rights to a majority of those productions. Some of the many highlights of this distinguished archive are interviews with world leaders such as Nelson Mandela, The Shah Of Iran, Mikhail Gorbachev, Yitzak Rabin, Benazir Bhutto, Margaret Thatcher, Presidents Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush, Clinton and nearly 30 hours of the now legendary interviews with President Richard Nixon filmed only two years after he resigned from office. Additionally, there are interviews with personalities such as Clint Eastwood, Muhammad Ali, Jodie Foster, Rock Hudson, Warren Beatty, The Bee Gees, Jane Fonda, John Travolta, Elton John, Bill Gates, Martin Scorsese, Paul McCartney, Sean Penn and a moving 70 minute introspective interview conducted with the late Robin Williams in 1991.
Wilfred Frost, one of Sir David Frost’s three sons said, “I am delighted we are partnering with David Peck and Reelin’ In The Years Productions on clip sales of Dad’s archive. We met and interviewed many potential partners, and David and his team were the perfect fit. There is an extraordinary opportunity here, and I am confident Reelin’ In The Years will help us make the most of it.”
