I have an inate curiosity about people.
This was almost two hours of factual documentary. In our audience ratings, barely no one left the programme. The whole of his life is so fascinating and people kept watching for that reason.
I don't think his life has been in any way disfigured by the film. The film did disclose some difficult facts.
We wanted to make sure that the film covered the main issues of his life. Musicianship, appearance.
You say he's childish, but he's very professional about business transactions.
The first time I ask him, have you had your cheekbones raised, have you had your nose changed? He denied it all. I was asking him to compare his face with what it looked like years ago.
The Thriller album is still the biggest album of all time. That is still returning huge royalty cheques.
The children don't wear their masks at home and in controlled surroundings.
It was not possible to broadcast any of that because of an agreement between Jackson and the family. Our legal advice was that we could not broadcast it.
It was a challenging experience. I'm looking forward to a break.
The film was fair to his musical achievement and gave him every opportunity to explain himself.
