Storyline

Tonight's programme is given over to an interview with one of the film industry's best known outsiders, Robert Altman. In a frank discussion that covers his beliefs and work ethics, Altman explains how he has survived the Hollywood jungle (don't worry the accountants and they won't worry you) and describes how he has been in and out of favour with the film industry since he made MASH in 1970. When Barry Norman suggests to Robert Altman that he is a maverick, the film director denies it but says "not everything has to be done the same way". Since MASH, Altman has made 30 films including Nashville, Popeye and, in 1992, The Player. He says he is proud of them all though: "these films are like children to me and you tend to love your least successful child the most". His latest film, Short Cuts, has just earned him an Oscar nomination for best director. Written by Radio Times
