Watch: Warren Mitchell Interview from 1970

I've been trawling through the fascinating archives BBC South Today have very kindly made available online and it's a treasure trove of classic clips from times past. I've already brought you rare clips with Carry On faces such as Kenneth Williams, Jack Douglas and Terry Scott and today it's the turn of the actor Warren Mitchell.

Although Warren Mitchell remains best known for his long running role as Alf Garnett in Till Death Us Do Part, he had a long career on stage and screen in many diverse, deeply challenging role. A colourful figure who was a million miles from the comedy character he came to play, Warren made a memorable cameo in the slave auction sequence in the 1964 comedy, Carry On Cleo.

Anyway the clip available here comes from a 1970 interview with the BBC. I hope you enjoy it.
