Sir David Frost to lecture on Queen Mary 2


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 of the United Kingdom will give several lectures during Queen Mary 2’s seven night Southampton to New York crossing departing on July 27.

Frost is no stranger to Cunard having travelled with the company several times over the years – most recently on a sector of Queen Mary 2’s World Voyage. He also interviewed Nelson Mandela live for the BBC from QE2 in Cape Town in 1998.

During this month’s crossing he 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 with the entertainment director Keith Maynard and he will also introduce the film ‘Frost/Nixon’.

Amongst notable speakers to appear during Cunard voyages for the remainder of 2012 are: Lynn Truss, author of ‘Eats, Shoots and Leaves’ (Queen Mary 2); former British politician Martin Bell and Roger McGuin, lead singer of the Byrds (Queen Elizabeth) and Dale Templar, producer of the BBC series, Human Planet, (Queen Victoria).
