Archive of American Television Interview with James Garner Part 1 of 6 - Google Video

Archive of American Television Interview with James Garner Part 1 of 6 - Google Video

The video plays really choppy. 20 seconds. Stop. 30 seconds. Stop.

If you let the video stream for a couple of minutes before you start the session, it works fine.

Very interesting. Why doesn't the interviewer have her own mike?
