The Establishing Shot: Hilarious & frank interview wth Sir Roger Moore at The Persuaders! 40th Anniversary launch event

Posted by Craig Grobler on Google+ On Tuesday, September 20, 2011

The Persuaders!A couple of months back I looked into going along to a special event to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of The Persuaders! and its release on Blu-ray. Unfortunately it did not pan out which is a shame as I am a huge fan of Sir Roger's work, especially his partnering with Tony Curtis for The Persuaders! which I used to watch at just the right age to appreciate their off the wall adventures.

The event entitled The Time and The Place was held on September 10th 2011 at Kent House in Knightsbridge. The evening will consist of a food and drinks reception, a screening of two episodes picked by Roger Moore and and question and answer session hosted by Barry Norman. And there was also a chance to see the original Aston Martin as seen in the series. I now regret not putting more effort to make sure I was there for this it sounds absolutely amazeballs!

But it's not all bad, as earlier today I noticed that Network DVD uploaded a clip from the interview session. In which we get to see Sir Roger at his hilarious best as he fires back fast, frank and funny quips at Barry Norman.

In The Persuaders! Two millionaire playboys - one a peer of the realm, born into money, and the other a self-made man who fought his way out of the New York slums - are conned by a retired judge into righting wrongs in a series that combines action, style, humour and panache in large quantities!

Highly anticipated on Blu-ray, this very popular action adventure series are presented in stunning High Definition for the first time. All 24 episodes are featured alongside a wealth of special features.

The Persuaders! : The Complete Series is out on DVD & Blu-ray from Mon 19 September, 2011

The Persuaders! (TV Series 1971–1972)
English Lord Brett Sinclair and American Danny Wilde are both wealthy playboys, they are teamed together by Judge Fullton to investigate crimes which the police can't solve. These two men are complete opposites, but become great friends through their adventures and constantly risk their own lives for one another.

Stars: Tony Curtis, Roger Moore and Laurence Naismith
