George Michael: The Red Line is a two-part interview of 60 minutes each. It will be broadcast for the first time on BBC Radio 2 on Wednesday, November 1, and Wednesday, November 8 at 10 p.m.
Kirsty Young interviewed George Michael as a part of the George Michael: Freedom documentary, which aired earlier this week in the UK.
After George’s death, it was decided that this, his final interview, should be released to the public.
The BBC article states:
Although it had never been the intention to broadcast their conversation in its entirety, following George’s untimely death only a few weeks later, it began to feel like something that should happen. In fact, as they parted, George said to Kirsty: “You should turn this into a radio programme.”
George Michael: The Red Line is his final interview, told in almost all it’s [sic] entirety with many of the personal asides left as they were.
Lewis Carnie, Head of Radio 2 says: “The Radio 2 listeners continue to love and remember George Michael and his music, and I’m glad that they will be able to hear his final, very special interview on the station.”
