Taped on May 22, 1990. Not as many fireworks as one might have expected from these two friendly antagonists--both guests being Britons who have spent much of their working lives in the United States--but an amusing look at the present state of the "special relationship." Christopher Hitchens: "Why can't I go into a supermarket without seeing a picture of Princess Diana, whom I left England to get away from? ... If I go back to England, what do I get? McDonald's hamburgers and American nuclear bases." ... John O'Sullivan: "The reason why the Americans always wanted the British in the European Community was because they would represent [the Americans'] thought, the ideas of free trade and free markets, which would mean that the Community would never be closed to American goods and American capital."
