Steve Wright in the Afternoon 23 May 2011 16:29 radio interview with Hugh recorded in early May. Talks about House, Mister Pip, Let Them Talk, celebrity and shoe shops.

Note: This interview was recorded before negotiations for House season 8 were completed. So some of what Hugh says is out of date.

This Morning 27 Jun 2003      
Parkinson 3 May 2003 15:22 interview in which Hugh discusses fame, wanting to join the Hong Kong police, his father, Fortysomething, Stuart Little, Jeeves and Wooster, and his dream job. Other guests on the show were Amanda Holden, Ronnie Corbett, and Shirley Bassey.

The clip is spliced together from two sources. Jennifer sent me a recording off BBC2 which has the complete interview, but the background flickers so much it makes me nauseous. Lozz sent me a nice clear recording off UK Gold, but that has a few minutes of the interview cut out. So I've used the UK Gold recording as the base and spliced in the BBC2 recording (with the flicker reduced) for the missing bits.

Wogan Jan 1992 10:50 interview with Hugh and Stephen Fry, focusing on the upcoming 3rd season of ABoF&L, with some mention of J&W. About 8 minutes in, there's a break in the action. During the "missing bits" Wogan was introducing exercise videos hosted by celebrities. Then he asked F&L for their opinions. Let's just say I don't expect to see a F&L exercise video anytime ever :)

Note: there are copies of the Apr 1991  (card trick) interview floating around with a Jan 1992 date attached. This is different, and they clearly mention ringing in 1992.
