JJohn Freeman's interview with Jomo Kenyatta was broadcast on 26 November 1961 in the BBC TV series 'Face to Face'. The present duplicated typescript of the interview is from the papers of the programme's producer Hugh Burnett, and is edited for publication in the book 'Face to Face | Edited and introduced by Hugh Burnett' (London: Jonathan Cape, 1964). 1p., foolscap 8vo. Headed 'JOMO KENYATTA', otherwise consisting entirely of the transcript, with no other details. Marked up with instructions to the typesetter in pencil and red and green ink, and corresponding to the text as printed on p.15 of Burnett's book. In fair condition, aged and worn. Kenyatta responds in a forthright fashion to Freeman's probing, as for example: 'We don't want to rob anybody of his property. […] what we want to get is power, that is, the government. […] We want help from those who can give us help. […] Those who want to be masters must find somewhere else, because what we want is friends to help us. Those who can help us, but masters – no. We have no place for them.'
