The show was hosted by British journalist Martin Bashir. Originally produced for the BBC, it earned strong ratings in the U.S. as well when it aired on VH1 and other networks. Jackson has repeatedly referred to the special as inaccurate and unfair. Neither the host nor the show's parent network issued any retractions or modifications, but Jackson later released videos from his personal camera which he'd had present at every interview with Bashir.
