GREAT WRITERS - ERNSET HEMINGWAY - GOHC6100
Ernest Hemingway swore that he never wanted his biography published until at least 100 years after his death. Respectfully defying his wishes, BIOGRAPHY brings Ernest Hemingway to viewers in a special two-hour biography of the man often quoted as the most important writer of the English language since Shakespeare.
Narrated by Mariel Hemingway, this programme aims to discover the man behind the infamous myth. Using interviews from his sons Jack and Gregory, his best friend A.E. Hotchner and Gregorio Fuentes – Hemingway’s model for ‘The Old Man And The Sea’ – BIOGRAPHY explores the life of Hemingway through those who loved and knew him best. With insights from Charles Scribner III, fellow African-hunter Clara Spiegel, and Gianfranco Ivanich – brother of Hemingway’s teenage-obsession – BIOGRAPHY brings life to the troubled writer as no programme has done before.
