A fine companion piece to the all-archival documentary 'The Reagan Show' - now showing in cinemas and on Curzon Home Cinema - this week's Curzon Front Row is 'Best of Enemies': a behind-the-scenes account of the explosive televised debates between the liberal Gore Vidal and the conservative William F. Buckley Jr., during the 1968 Democratic and Republican national conventions. Live and unscripted, they kept viewers riveted with their rancorous disagreements about politics, God, and sex. Ratings for ABC News sky-rocketed; and a new era in public discourse was born. ★★★★ "A fascinating, hugely enjoyable essay on media history – and on intellectual vanity" - Jonathan Romney, The Observer
