CHARLIE Brooker interviews The Wire creator David Simon at this year's Edinburgh TV Festival. I wish this had taken place in my local pub, which is also called the Edinburgh. But it hasn't got a TV festival.

Extra bonus features: The three best Simon interviews around
David Simon on his Baltimore
A two parter with Bill Moyers on PBS
This is Simon's great state of nation address about the death of newspapers, but for the casual viewer (fuck the casual viewer), it'll take a while. This is the essential commentary on the 'death' of our press.
