Wogan/Harries to be the new Frost/Nixon

THE iconic 1988 interview between Terry Wogan and James Harries is being made into a film in the style of Frost/Nixon.

The film’s producers believe the encounter between folksy interviewer and troubled antiques-obsessed child is guaranteed box office gold.

Director Emma Bradford said: “The Wogan/Harries interview is a seminal moment in the history of television.

“It’s a gladiatorial meeting of minds where young Harries disparagingly refers to the host by his surname.

“As the bow tie-clad youngster explains his worrying refusal to attend school, Wogan is desperate to get a few cheap laughs – the entertainment value of his early evening chat show depends upon it.

“The stakes could not be higher.”

Reality TV producer Nikki Hollis said: “In many ways their meeting creating the template for modern television, where a carousel of misfits rotates to a backdrop of mocking laughter.”

Logan said the film would include events before and after the encounter, including Wogan’s years spent honing his skills on Children In Need, Blankety Blank and covering for Jimmy Young on Radio 2.

He added: “There’s an incredibly poignant scene where Harries, now a 35-year-old woman called Lauren, leaves the Celebrity Big Brother house and asks herself, ‘What the fucking hell is any of this about?’”

No matter what I do, everybody hates me

Dear Holly,

I’m really fed up with being unpopular. No matter what I do, everybody hates me. How do I get people to like me and think I’m cool?

Dear Nick,

Luckily it’s the start of autumn term; you’ve got the chance of a fresh start. You got in with a bad crowd in the past, and unfortunately they dragged you down, so this year, try to find a new set of friends who won’t bully you into doing daft things that make you look like a complete spanner. Think of the new academic year as a kind of rebranding process: ditch the old Hannah Montana pencil case and get yourself a smutty Miley Cyrus one instead. Most importantly, if you’re going to use bribery to gain respect, be sensible. Don’t give away rubbish stuff like free school dinners (you might as well be handing out free dog turds). You’re much more likely to win friends by inviting people round to play Grand Theft Auto V on your dad’s Playstation while he’s gone to B & Q.

Hope that helps!
