Watching the interview I never felt that Krishnan was sincere, he was just out to drum up viewers for CH4 News.
There's a time and a place and it's not in the middle of those dreary film PR things when the interviewee has probably done twenty interviews that day alone.
CH4 News obviously saw it as a PR opportunity... for CH4 News.
Krishnan is a terrific journalist, as are most of the C4 news brigade. His questions were interesting and relevant and far better than the fawning nonsense you would get from some other journalists. I remember Suzanne from breakfast TV interviewing the SATC cast. She may as well have cleaned their shoes with her tongue.
