In 1963 Peter O'Toole starred in a production of 'Baal' at the Phoenix theatre in London. Lelia Doolan spoke to him about being Irish, acting and his role in Brecht's 'Baal'.
Asked about his Irishness O'Toole says,
I consider myself an Irish man but I have lived all my life or most of my life in England so I am a pretty bogus Irish actor as such.
This edition of Broadsheet was broadcast on 15 May 1963. The reporter is Lelia Doolan.
