We are in America and our first television appearance was on the Oprah Winfrey Show in Chicago. It was her Friday live panel programme which made it more spontaneous and unpredictable, but great fun.
She loves Christian’s story and said she had cried when she first saw the YouTube clip last summer and when it was shown this time some of the audience and one of the panel members, Ali Wentworth, had a good cry.
The scoop we had kept for Oprah was the never before seen 16mm footage of what turned out to be our final reunion with Christian in 1972.
We are now in New York and have a busy week with appearances which include the Today Show, Dateline NBC, Entertainment Tonight, and The View with Whoopi Goldberg and Barbara Walters.
Our book is prominently displayed in all the major shops like Barnes & Noble and Borders, sometimes with “As seen on Oprah”.
