Julian Bream in Conversation with Jill Cochrane.


There is only a very short clip available o0n the internet. The interview is likely longer and probably buried deep in the vaults of the BBC.


***I am assuming that this interview was performed in the era of "¡Guitarra!" because it was around this period that he was wearing the sky blue suits and he had already  shaved his 1970's sideburns.
