ITN’s Roving Report featured a relatively youthful Robin Day interrogating personalities abroad.

In 1957, Egypt was still technically at war with Britain following the Suez Crisis, and so it was a major coup when Day obtained an exclusive interview with President Nasser of Egypt in the garden of his home just outside Cairo.

Their conversation assumed even greater significance when Nasser leaned towards the camera and invited Britain to reestablish amicable relations with his country.
