Thiis is a satire by British satirists John Fortune & John Bird on the South Bank show. They are well known for their topical mock interviews. However, Bird & Fortune's interviews differ in that they always speak to 'George Parr', an anonymous figure in high places.

yeh, they're playing it straight. it's like a news report, if the press were still doing biz news, that is, instead of ads.

rajiv, thx for the background. the usa needs a skit like this. maybe ej can do it with that guy he collaborated with on that greenspan interview.
