In the final programme of Frost Over the World in 2010, Sir David looks back at special highlights of the past year, including his interviews with notable world political figures, sports icons and cultural personalities.

We review interviews with Tony Blair, the former British prime minister, George Papaconstantinou, the Greek finance minister, and Christine Lagarde, the French finance minister, focusing on the global and European economy.

Then Sir David shifts focus and looks back at his interviews with US General David Petraeus, Hamid Karzai, the Afghan president, Abdul Salam Zaeef, the former Taliban ambassador and one of its founders, and finally concluding with NATO secretary general Anders Fogh Rasmussen.
