If anyone can get hold of these, please provide to JJ so that he can shre them with us. I think they all would be very interesting. The personality and character quality comparison between then and current foreign ministry.

Looks like a great collection of interviews. I would definitely watch.

Does anyone have information about this project? Where it can be purchased?
