Dilip Hiro 1968

30 mins United Kingdom

In this interview, respected British-Pakistani journalist Dilip Hiro discusses his personal experiences of living and working in Britain. He reveals his struggle to find suitable employment and his move into journalism. Hiro shares his thoughts on the concept of integration, a theme explored in a recent article. Bernard Braden also quizzes him on his creative writing.

This interview was intended to be shown in a television series called Now and Then. Between 1967-68, over 330 public figures were interviewed for this independently financed venture. The series aimed to chart the evolving thoughts of its interviewees, however the project was eventually abandoned. This material remained unbroadcast until 2008.
