Host Dame Edna dead-pans a humorous interview with Sean Connery for the first episode of Australian comedian Barry Humphries' new TV chat show back in 1987.

Connery, with his tongue in his cheek, admits that it was a stuntman - not he - who suffered the tarantula in 'Dr. No.' Connery then describes his early life and, when asked if it could be said that he was born in a slum, he points out that about half the audience probably was, too.

"'The Name of the Rose' was without doubt the most difficult, arduous, time-consuming film I was ever involved in."
