In anticipation of the launch of an archive collection of In The Psychiatrist's Chair on Radio 4 Extra, a chance to hear Les Dawson's earnest and open interview with Dr. Anthony Clare recorded the week before his death in 1993. In the published transcripts of the interview Clare says he felt privileged to have been given the interview and described Les as being "in good humour and talked, joked, clowned and recalled memories of his life with an energy and gusto that was infectious." At the time of its first broadcast, it formed part of the BBC's tribute to, as Clare put it, "a funny, generous, wise and happy man". Produced by Michael Ember Associates.
