Glad to be here. Thank you very much. We saw you this morning at the news council meeting. How did that go? I think it went extremely well. There is also a question of how difficult it is generally to cover the event. How much information is available. How do those correspondents feel today when they know that some international journalists are being held by the taliban, probably being tortured right now? A huge concern, actually. A lot of frustration. Var difficult situation. How is that balanced? We -- all of us know some of them. A very difficult situation. There but for the grace of God go I was supposed to be over there. You were? We didn't know events were going to break as quickly as they did. I did cover Afghanistan in the Soviets invasion. How rugged is the country? It's probably the most brutal terrain I've ever seen of any one country. Really quite extraordinary. And I think American tactics over there, no one, including the Pentagon had any idea that the Taliban would fall as quickly as it has. It is not over yet. They've done an absolutely admirable job, I think. What's the outrage you have and perhaps your news agency as to what those people have done? Not only what they've done to their own people, but what they've done to the civilization? The Taliban? Yeah. What they've done is go against anything the civilized world stands for. Everything from how they treat their own people to the harboring of terrorists. How would you like to be a Taliban whipper? Where do you live? I'm supposed to go back to the U.K. in march although they're questioning whether or not they're going to freeze our transfers until the news settles down a bit. What do you personally feel is going to happen once this does settle down? With regard to? With regard to how not only the economy but the reactions of people as they relax now that the terrorists are under control. So we can get back to whatever normal is. There will be a greater degree of normalcy. On the other hand, the security will be in place for some time. There's a feeling that the economy will be settle down faster. Unemployment is actually down recently, oes the last quarter, which is a bit surprising, but it is good news in fact. We must be hiring a lot of sky marshals. I'm going to run for dinner. I don't want to miss that. Thank you very much indeed. Bye. We're back here now live in New York city with the iEmmys. Here's my friends from the netherlands and Holland. Tell me who is here? We have the host of our show. And next to her is our managing director. Yes, then we have Kim and Kim is one of the editors and doing a great job for our show. Hi, everybody. Then we have Andre, Andre is one of the directors. Oy! Oy! And this is our Dutch cameraman. Hello. And our soundman is frank, also from the Netherlands. He is our colleague and lots of colleagues of ours are watching. In the middle of night in Holland and they are back in the office. And they came especially for this webcast back to the office. Who's in the office right now? Everybody's working hard in the office. Ali and who else? All right. What's your show? Well, our show is called "Willem Wever." It's a show in which children can ask questions. "Willem Wever" will go on a tour to find answers to the questions of children. You go and shoot Notre Dame at all? Remember Maduradam? We have live chats so people can actually call in here and ask you all questions. Maybe your office staff will tell us how many there are there? That would be great. We'd love to hear from them. [ speaking Dutch ] What was on your last show? The show that has been nominated, it's why French cheese smells. You can ask Kim. Because she wrote it. How does a cell phone work, why does French cheese smell,. Those three questions we answer. When did you answer them? Well, it was last year and French tv we asked them. The question I heard that the children in Holland, most of the children do have cell phones. Here in America, it is not. It's very safe that children have cell phones. Yes. You know where they are. We give answers to the questions of children, but can we ask you something? Sure. Can you tell us why the Emmy is called Emmy? Why is the Emmy called Emmy? Yes. Because it was named every Emma gold Horowitz. Oh, that's the other Emmy. Oh, the other Emmy. No, it isn't. Watch our program, then you know. Did a child ask that question? Yeah, and we filmed it today. Oh, you did? We filmed with Emmy experts. And she told me. What did she say? Okay. You want to hear it? It takes five minutes. They make the statue. And in the beginning, they called it Ike because your former president's nickname was Ikep pen they thought that Emmy was a better name. Emmy was the name of the first real television studio camera, but Emmy wasn't a good name for a female statue, so they thought Emmy is a better name. Where was the original Emmy? Where was it cast? Is it still around? I don't know. So we have a follow-up show? Yeah. We'll be back. That's the question. You're too old. I'm young at heart. What kind of format do you shoot on with your cameras? It depends. We are very lucky we started later with television. We have lines more than you are. It's in the line, too, isn't it? It is, yeah. What kind of computers and what kind of digital -- Just like anywhere else in the world. Am I allowed to say any brand names? We have Microsoft stuff like everywhere else. Everybody has good connection, we have a lot of cable in Holland. So our people have real fast connections. So I think if people are watching in the Netherlands they'll have a good view of this. You're having fun here in snoork? It's great. Marvelous. We've been to ground zero this week. It is very emotional to be there. We saw them on telly. And it's completely different when you see the people working and the New Yorkers. Well, it was good to be here. When do you go home? Tomorrow. Wow. What time? Well, that depends. Depends on if you win or not? If we win the Emmy or not. : in the evening flight. What's the name of the show that's being nominated? "Willem Wever." You're out of questions. Can we ask you more? One more. Are you a host for a program? Yes. I do a lot of interviews for TV worldwide. We travel across the country for some of our activities. What are you do hearing now? A lot of laughter by the boys. The boys in the back room are giving it to me. What did they say? I might say it on Holland television, but I can't say it here. Ask me another question. What's my favorite sport? What do you like for eating? Oh, Italian food. What kind of -- anything with garlic. With garlic? Do you have Italian ancestors? That's right. Fortenza. You've been back?

Good luck and hopefully we'll come back after you get your award. Sorry about that "You're too old." How old do you think I am? Oh, thank you. You're good.

How about another hand for the U.N. choir? It's great to be back here for a second year. I just want to alert you to something. If I appear a little distracted, it's because, quite honestly, I'm still in some pain. This is embarrassing, but here it is. Last week, I'm watching cnn. And I see the Taliban running for the hills out of Mazar-e-Sharif and Kabul. Afghan mens are shaving their beards off. This wonderful act of liberation. I'm feeling caught up in it. I want to show my solidarity, but I don't have a beard. So I got my legs waxed. And including a bikini wax. I don't have to tell you ladies, that's painful. We're gathered together here at a time when I have to tell you, I got ready for tonight and it was a little easier than I would have expected. So many people who are hosting events lately, the key question for them is when can I be funny? But I figure you were all asking that about me last year, so we've got a head start from most people doing shows like this. There are some changes tonight. Some of them are philosophical. Some of them are procedural. I just want to run through them with you right now. On the philosophical front, we're not regarding this so much tonight as a competition. We're thinking of it more like an international coalition. Now, some of you will be called upon to participate in the coalition more than others in that some of you will come up and accept Emmys and others will sit there and pretend you're happy for the people that came up to accept Emmys. For the presenters, pretty similar to last year. Backstage, you get an envelope and in that will be the name of the winner. The only difference is, with the envelope this year you get a four-day supply of Cipro. Just to be careful. For all of you nominee, you're probably looking at the Emmy statuettes. These are replicas, they're not to scale. You look at these pointed things in the back and you're probably wondering how you get that past airport security. We thought of that. This year, all of our Emmy statuettes are made from sculpted milk chocolate. So it's more than just an award. It's also a snack. You can carry it on comfortably or before you get on the plane, just apply it directly to your thighs, however you want to make that work for you. Right now, though, we're going to get into a little bit of the behind the scenes of the Emmys. This is a night where top industry professionals from runs judge the international Emmy awards and the international accounting firm of Ernst & young tabulated those votes. We are, as always delighted to have them on board. Representing Ernst & Young is marty Shannon with the official results. Come out and wave to us Marty. The lovely and talented Marty Shannon. Thanks, Marty. For an example of how well they count at Ernst & Young, we'll get right to the first award. The category is drama. Now, here's a hint to those of you who wanted to get nominated in this category next year, a good drama inevitably has a hero. You know, someone who rushes into a dangerous situation to save others while those others are rushing away. If you want to know what a hero looks like, it is my pleasure to introduce two of them to present this award. Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome from the New York Fire Department, lieutenant tom Woods. Michael Carding representing New York's bravest and finest. Thank you, Tom. Before I say anything else, I'd like to welcome all of you to our beautiful city. I want to thank everyone not only in this city, in this country, but throughout the world for your outpouring of help, concern, support and most of all your prayers. It's appreciated beyond what any words could possibly say. Thank you and God bless you. [ Applause ] We in the police department would like to sprez our gratitude. And what what you've done is noticed. I would like to thank you broadcasters, keeping the world truthfully informed as to what was happening and how we as a nation were doing. Thank you for all of your efforts. We salute you. [ Applause ] Now, we'd like to begin by offering congratulations to all the nominees, and it is our privilege to present the first award tonight for drama. You would think we've had just about enough drama for one year -- but it's in times like these that we see the value of the great connection between what you do and the rest of us who watch television. That's right. Great television drama helps us understand the big moments in our lives, things that drive us, that shape us, that change us for better or worse. Great television drama also gives us a chance to look at life in new ways and learn other experiences and see things we never thought we'd see or ever expect we'd see. One great example comes out of the September th tragedy, something I'd never expect. Right from the beginning of the rescue effort downtown, there were too many volunteers to use effectively at the site. We had to turn them away. But instead of just going home, the people who came to help did something that took us all by surprise. They would line the streets, leading to the "World "Trade Center site and applaud the police who were coming in and out of the site. Hard to put in words what that felt like. Day after day, there they were, saying thanks. In a way that caught us offguard. But that adds something special and powerful to the emotions that were flooding us from every direction. Is it hard to say thank you and thank everyone who contributed and helped us all. And in the same way you broadcasters from all around the world added something special and powerful to us. Your support, your coverage, the footage we saw of the vigils and crowds in the country connected us forever. Hard to find a way to say thank you for that either. We give one of you an international award for drama t nominees are -- From the United Kingdom, "Dirty Tricks" a little bird production for Carlton Television. Edward befriends a wealthy couple. Before long they are both dead and Edward is rich. He might be a born liar, but is he also capable of murder? It must have been the emotion of the moment, but I nearly forgot the crucial importance of her single ticket to Bambry. From Germany, "Jahrestage." Prodded by her -year-old daughter, Gesine resurrects the coast of her past which moves between preworld war Germany in the turbulent s. From the United Kingdom, "Cold Feet," series . Granada Television. -somethings that come to terms with infidelity, infertility and wedding toasts. How Williams finally gets married. A first time for everything, isn't there? Not for Rachel, second time for her. But you didn't know that, did you? Not that it lasted long, though. Well, it did, actually, it lasted age, not until the divorce, that's when he found out that they were married. That's when they were just moving in together. He moved in as well. Husband number one moved in and there were three of them. Oh -- like a French film. Still, you have to laugh, though don't you? From France, "Fatou La Malienne," France Television and Cineteve. She dreams of being a stylist and choosing her own husband. Yet Malian tradition will FORCE her into a loveless match with a man who repeatedly rapes her. Her battle to be free scandalizes her community. The national Emmy for drama goes to -- and the winner is "Dirty Tricks." Accepting is Joe Willette. Congratulations. Well, nothing could beat the drama of these guys. So it's very nice that it's gone to a come etdy at a moment like this. But I would like to thank our writer, Nigel Williams who did a wonderful screenplay and our director. Our next presenter is an interesting conglomerate. Imagine if you will, Walter Cronkite, Rupert Murdoch and Oprah Winfrey as one person. That conjures up the image of -- I don't know -- African-American woman with a mustache and an Australian accent. So maybe that's not the image to go with. Look for the inner qualities and you'll find someone just like yanLan. Forbes selected sun TV as one of the best small companies in the world. She's on Asia week's list of the movers and shakers of st century China. She's on the advisory board of the school of international and public affairs of Columbia university. She's a goodwill ambassador in helping Beijing win the Olympic games. Maybe it's me, but I think there's a market there in China and you heard it here first. YanLan wears so many different hats, we thought it appropriate for her to announce two awards tonight. [ Applause ] Thank you. Thank you, Tom. Thank you, everyone. Good evening. It is such a pleasure to be able to join you here tonight in New York. My husband and I used to live here for three years. And it's our first return after September th. We only find people here nicer and stronger. All this has made this trip truly memorable and unforgettable. Now back to my job here tonight, the international Emmy for documentary is given to a completely factual presentation supported by evidence and informed commentary on the subject other than art and artists. Combining the power of the truth and the reach of television, a television documentary assumes a power that all of us in the communication business respects and admire. It is not unusual at all that a documentary will take years to finish. It requires great judgment, persistence, teamwork and some luck. In the hands of great television artists, these documentaries open our eyes to things we should see, our minds to things we should think about and our hearts to things that should matter to us. This year's nominees do all and more. The nominees for International Emmy for documentary are -- Documentary. From the United Kingdom, "Challenger: Go For Launch," a co-production of Blast Films and JWM productions for BBC. The "Challenger" space shuttle exploded seconds into its mission, leaving no survivors. The disaster was in the immortal words of the NASA spokesman, a major malfunction. On the night before blastoff a clear warning to stop the launch was overridden. My wife, she asked me, what's wrong? I said, oh, nothing, honey. It was a great day. We just had a meeting. They're going to launch tomorrow and kill the astronauts, but outside of that, it was a great day. All they had to do was wait. It was a risk that did not have to be taken. I thought it was over. I thought we weren't going. I didn't think there was a chance that we were going. From Japan "For My Baby," the decision of an HIV infected hemophiliac and his wife. Mainichi Broadcasting System. Having a baby was not an easy decision for sat o rue Ienishi and his wife. The couple have chosen to have their baby. Until the day of her birth, they both worried that their baby would in the future face discrimination for having a parent with HIV. Now, however, they have a deep conviction that their child will grow up strong in spirit, for she could not have been longed for more. From France, "Golda's List," France , Time TV and Sunset presse. Israeli athletes were slaughtered. Over the next years, Palestinians were murdered. Did prime minister Golda Meir order these assassination? And did the Munich massacre become the motive of a secret war against the Palestinian leaders? Gold ka Meir's decision was open war on PLO and the Palestinians everywhere, not only in Lebanon only, not only in the camps, wherever Palestinians are, in Europe, in Paris, in London, roma, Oslo. I can give you a long list of Palestinians who were killed in all these countries under the nose and eyes of European authorities. From the Netherlands, "North Korea" for six years the network failed to get a journalist visa to visit north Korea. Finally using a cover, they managed to visit the country under a watchful eye of selected ones. North Korean who have permission to speak to foreigners. What the crew saw, or rather, what they didn't see, is the subject of this documentary. Music from loudspeakers all over town wakes everybody up at : in the morning. The streets are immaculate. The final cleaner is ready to go home. A policewoman is directing traffic that doesn't exist. There are no elderly people in the streets. Most of them have been relocated to places outside the city borders those that stay behind are encouraged to stay indoors as are the handicapped. They don't fit in the desired picture. I cannot wait to see them all. But there's only one winner. And I'm here privileged to announce that International Emmy for documentary goes to "North Korea" accepting on behalf of the program are director. Please, congratulations. I believe it's a hard documentary to make. [ Applause ] Thank you very much. To be honest, we didn't prepare a speech because, as everybody says always, we didn't expect this, which is true. The other documentaries are ver well done, I think. So in that respect, there could have been four winners. Of course, very happy to be standing here right now. It may be a very important moment in our careers and more important than that, and a difficult period in time in the world, as we all face, it's also good in spite of the difficulties here in America and other parts of the world, to realize that there's also very many countries, southern America Africa, but also north Korea, which are facing problems every day. Thank you very much. Thank you very much. [ Applause ] Congratulations again. Now, the next category is arts documentary. It's also a factual presentation but for this award, the subject matter is the arts themselves and the artists who create them. The reason it requires its own separate category is because of a unique capability of television to allow us into the minds of great artists and to view the creative process in a way that is impossible with any other media. It is using an art form to reveal the inner life of an art form. This is an area I know quite well because we broadcast many of great art documentaries on Sun TV. And to show you how exciting that can be, the nominees for this year's arts documentary international Emmy are -- Arts documentary. From Japan, "Bunraku," NHK, Japan Broadcasting Corporation. Considered national living treasures, this master puppeteer of the traditional art of Bunraku still hone their own performance skills while passing on their expertise to younger artists. Puppets can weigh as much as kilograms. It takes ten puppeteers to operate a single puppet. An ten years of operating the feet and another ten years operating the left hand, a puppeteer is finally ready to operate the body and head. > From the United Kingdom, "The Miles Davis Story." A DIBB Production for channel . To mark the anniversary of his death, this documentary explores the man and his music. Often difficult, always brilliant and innovative, the legendary trumpeteer was involved in every development of jazz since the s. His sound's unique and individual. You knew when you heard that song, you knew that was Miles. A lot of people thought he was an egotist. But the real miles came through. Confused the hell out of people, you know. He was a good cat, you know. So the combination of the two created a mystique. > From Canada, "Ravel's Brain." Rhombus Media and Ideale Audience. A poem which reveals the inner world of a great artist who was rendered incapable of communicating with the outside world. I still have so much music in my head. I have done nothing and still have so much more to say. ♪ From Mexico, "Buscando America: La Vida de Ruben Blades," America Films, as an adolescent in Panama, he experienced an awakening. After earning a law degree, he went on to emerge as one of the most revered social activists, actors and musicians of our day. We're here now live with the winners from the drama category, "Dirty Tricks." Congratulations. Thank you very much. We thought of rooting for you because when we previewed the nominations, it was a very funny story. Where is the house? Where is the house? Yeah. It's in Oxford. We were just driving by the house. We thought, with we'll try that one. The people who lent it to us never realized what was going on there. That's funny. And is the foot scene in the book? Yes. You've seen the foot scene, have you? Did you laugh? Oh, yeah. Because it's filthy. No, no. No, it didn't go -- stuck out in the rain waiting for the husband. He's soaking wet. Yes, yes. It gets cold in that part of the country. Very, very British, yeah. We all relate to that. What's next for you guys? We're doing a very different piece. A film that co-produceing about the queen mother. The story of her marriage to the king of england. That exciting or dull? No, it's not dull. The same writer. And he makes everything interesting. When is that coming out? Next February or March. Somewhere on the anniversary of the queen. Where do we get to see it? WGBH. What's the titles of that. "Berty and Elizabeth." Who came up with the name? We came up with that name. How exciting was it to be up there with the firemen and policemen? Absolutely amazing. That's real drama, isn't it? Incredible. I got their autograph for my son. He'll love that. We were really thrilled it won. When it went out in england, it was a show we loved. Very eccentric show. It didn't get a lot of recognition. We were very disappointed by it. I said-to-come here and get an international award, is fantastic for us. It means maybe somebody in America will buy it. It would be great. How do you go by that next step in merchandising it? What's the next step now that it has been recognized. I guess I'll be calling on people tomorrow saying, you know an international Emmy award winner is free. I hope that will just give it that extra bit. Very British show. Very funny, to get it on to some kind of -- "Dirty Tricks." How do I get to see it now? There is a video of it. Not available in the states. I don't think so. We'll have to send you one. I think you'd have to be very very nice to us. Do you have a website or how do people contact you? Www.CarltonTV.co.uk. Excellent. Very good. Anybody who wants to see a preview of "Dirty Tricks" or see this event can dial into TVworldwide.com and see this event tonight and help market this. That's amazing. This is sure a pretty thing. You certainly deserve it. Thank you. Thank you very much. Thank you. We're going back now to the awards in the main ballroom live. Thank you. Previous recipients have included sir David aten bore oug Jim henson, bill Cosby, jack Hewlett and jack vens is a. Today we have a man experience in the television business has made him worthy of this honor. As most of you may know, Pierre Lescure is currently co-chief operating operator of Vivendi Universal and chairman of the executive board of the CANAL+ group. Before that, he managed CANAL+ from the start in . First, as chief operating officer, then as chairman and CEO when the founder resigned in '. Now, how do you please a man who's got everything? Get him something no money or merger and acquisition can buy, the respect and recognition of his peers. In other words, hand him the international Emmy founders award. Granted Pierre might not have gotten an Emmy if he had insisted on his singing career. Or pursued his elusive weatherman fantasy. Instead, Pierre Lescure has caught the voters' eye because together with the folks at CANAL+, he has built a group which is now the European leader in pay TV, boasting more than million subscriptions in countries. One of Pierre's main assets has always been his privileged connection to artists. He loves and understands them. They feel comfortable around him too. And very early on, Pierre also learned to like and understand businessmen. And in turn, they got to feel comfortable around him, too. So for all this unmistakably Frenchy about him, Pierre is a rare breed, but long last a Frenchman the rest of the world can like. A literary expert that faithfully supports his soccer team. A rock 'n' roll Renaissance man who has made cultural curiosity his life calling. Intellectual fulfillment his drive, and entertainment his business. Very, very serious business. [ Applause ] Pierre, congratulations. Thank you. Pierre Lescure, a genuinely good guy. Thank you. Thank you, everyone. And thank you Mr. Ambassador. As some said, you've been a great character and a key player in New York, but also for a lot of us in this audience during the last few years, you've been the most friendly, efficient and the most selective American ambassador in my country and with your wife Elizabeth you've been become a very real American in Paris. I'm very proud indeed to receive this award for myself, obviously but also and mostly this award makes me proud and happy for the people at CANAL+ and especially the ones who are attending the show tonight. Because I'm not, how we put, kind of guy, I'm also pleased to have my beloved aunt and uncle with me tonight. Indeed, I think, I really think it is fair to acknowledge the condition of pay TV to the art of making television whether it is in the states or CANAL+ in Europe. For a short while, pay TV channel may simply have been considered to be simple sports and movie airing films and football hours a day. Instead, it very quickly became clear that pay TV channels were beginning a new relationship with a new type of viewers and subscribers. In other words, people expect and demand something different and, in many ways, better, in exchange for their money. That in turn, as created for the pay TV channels, both the obligation and the freedom to provide something different. Different and possibly better than what the same viewers would otherwise be getting for free. To take an example that will speak to everyone, "The Sopranos" could happen only on pay TV. Pay TV has provided both the economic and creative freedom to present such a daring, ambitious and innovative TV series. At CANAL+, for instance, very early on, we have been credited for coming up with the new approach to broadcasting which we have very successfully exported in every country where we are now represented. Everywhere our teams have become known FORCing even the free channels to catch up. In our case, obviously, because of the our approach to sports for a long time has been easier to export than our dramas. Now, as you know, it so happens that CANAL+ is a TV and film station of even the universal with the wonderful team. Together under the leadership of messier together with who I am here tonight with their presence. And hopefully from CANAL+ in particular, we haven't seen anything yet. Good night and thanks to everyone. [ Applause ] We're back here with the winner of the arts documentary award. That goes to the "Miles Davis Story." Mike, congratulations. Thank you very much. That sure is a pretty statue for you. Yes, it is, yes, indeed. Being photographed there, I thought I'm at Wimbledon. Which is the other dream I really wish I could have won Wimbledon. The first time I've ever been in front of a bank of photographers. We previewed your program earlier today, and it looked like you were in productions for a long time before this got released. Well, in production for a long time, I've been trying to make it for years. But I finally went into production about two years ago, I suppose, with a tremendous act of faith from Channel . And it's a very expensive film to make, very complicated and rights to clear. It needed the Miles Davis estate and Sony and Channel and a lot of money and a lot of people to say yes. Part of the money -- I know it was about $, a minute for music rights? Not music rights but the archive costs. The cost of music clearance was on top of that. You were talking about some of your experiences, the storyboard went another five seconds, you were saying, oh, my God, that's another -- it was $, for a minute or part of a minute. If you go over the minute, you're suddenly incurring another $,. You sew you think, I better cut it. A beautiful program. You're coming out with a DVD? I think Sony is releasing that. What will it be called? It will be called "The essential miles, the Miles Davis Story." So now they're going to have an additional thing. What are you going to do next mike? I'm not quite sure. What I'd really like to do is an astonishing tango musician from Argentina who died ten years ago. I saw him in New York. Since he tie died, I think he's become almost the most recorded artist by many classical musicians and jazz musicians. An extraordinary man who isn't well enough known. I'll let you go now. Where do you live? I live in London, but I come from north of England. Grew up on the east coast of Yorkshire. Have you seen the rowers in the Thams? Yes, I do. I'm half way up the course. Excellent. Is that right? Thanks for joining us. Students from high schools compete to Ring the Golden Bell. Even though everyone did their best. Today the sacred heart high school answered all questions correctly and finally became the th golden bell ringer. From Germany, "Kuss mich, Frosch". When -year-old Anna lightheartedly kisses a frog, he naturally turns into a handsome prince. Unfortunately, he's , years behind the times and a bit of a chauvinist cad. Due to technical difficulties there is no audio at this point in time. Well, it's not quite a big a stretch as you might think. When many of you were children, in fact, before many of you were born, I was working in television for the BBC when this was only one station. That was back in '. I made a number of appearances for the BBC. Then I came to New York in ' and appeared on a number of shows such as Sarah Churchill's and Robert Montgomery presents. In fact, my film career was the result of my television performances. As I was discovered by Hollywood whilst I was working here in New York in television. I starred in very many television series including "Ivanhoe" set in the middle ages. And "Maverick" set in the th century. And "The Saint". And of course, "Ivanhoe" and "Maverick" were not contemporary dramas when I made them. I have a great connection with television production. And I have also a great professional connection to children. In fact, after hanging up my Walter PPK and stopped introducing myself as Bond, James Bond -- [ Applause ] -- I was fortunate enough to be introduced to UNICEF by the late wonderful, beautiful Audrey Hepburn. [ Applause ] And since then I have spent years very happily working as a goodwill ambassador for UNICEF. Now all of this makes me a perfect presenter to present the Y.E.S. for children award. This is a first of its kind award for a global campaign to secure and support each child's inalienable right to a life of health, peace and dignity. Television is vital to the success of the campaign, which includes more than million people, from over countries. Y.E.S. for children broadcasting announcements are airing on CNN International, BBC World Service Nickelodeon and a wide range of television and radio stations around the world. My last television series was the persuaders. And now I'm hoping all of you will join me in persuading our entire industry to make this program a huge success. Many of you have already started. Tonight's award honors the most original and creative programming designed by a national broadcasters to promote the say Y.E.S. for children campaign and includes entries from more than television stations and networks.

From electromedia, Phil la peens -- back here in the press room behind the gala stage. The winner of the founders award. Congratulations. Thank you. You're a very busy guy, head of Vivendi and a lot of other enterprises. How do you consider the international Emmys as an important step to promote international television? Oh, I think it's a key step. I used to come every year to the International Emmys. I think it's the best place. Because in a country where television, your country, United States, to have this opportunity every year to meet with the meeting of people in television coming from all around the world and using every kind of TV, sports, drama, documentaries, and that's very unique opportunity. I know you're a pioneer and very flexible in your business enterprises. You started a home service? France? How is that going? It's going very well. Because we have perhaps the finest technology in terms of digitallization but also interactivity. So now we make a deal with the French authorities and we are broadcasting live, and it is flexible from home and Tibet, and the investment has been proved. Now it is -- we made -- last month, we made I think something like million fraungss. That's a lot. How do you guarantee the security and keep the criminal element out of that? As you know, perhaps, in France we have a card with little chips in it. So you have to dial -- we would control. You have to put your credit card in the slot and you decoder and after that we would control. Have you to dial your personal code number for numbers, for figures. So you can change that number -- of course. Absolutely. What's next? What are you going to do next? Next, we are really now,s as you did in the U.S., with Tivo, replay, we are focusing on the new end of a new set of box with a hard disk in it so it will be possible to play as you are doing now. It will be both on the Internet, both on the sv and to play with the interactivity on each box. That's fun. Yes, I hope so. Thank you for joining us here. Where do you live? I'm living one part of my time in Paris and with one part in L.A. Really, a hopper. Trying to. Bye. I think we're going back to the gala floor. Roger Moore. Thank you. Thank you.

And football is not only the wonderful entertainment as a game, football is more. Football is education and football is hope. That's why together with the UNICEF, we want to join the effort to give the children of the world this hope, and through the school of life, football with its educational work -- okay. I'm here now with the director -- actually the president of the U.N. choir. Thank you for joining us here. It's really a pleasure to be here. Your group sang at the opening ceremony? Yes. It was for us the first time that we were invited for it. And I think we were very hobed. What is the diversity of that set of people in the choir? Right now I think there were about nationalities. We sing songs in about different languages. Usually we sing more folk songs type, but this time we really were focusing on the peace, theme of peace. How do you organize such a group like that? How do you keep it going? Ats gone on for over years. How do you do that? We all started with the United Nations, all related to the United Nations. And we practice in our own free time, our own time. And whenever we have a chance, we go out. So I would say it brings us a lot of joy. What's your next event? What do you do next? Well, we may have an invitation for some Caribbean island. I cannot say until -- normally every year we have our Christmas concerts which carries all over the world. Although I must say that this year it had be a very difficult year because of the event and the security measures, it really does have a very strong effect on us and our activities. Where do you come from? I'm have sar from surinam. How long have you been here? Or do you go back and forth? No, no. I work for the United Nations. I've been here almost for years. Okay. Got it. How do you like this event? It is great, great. I think international public as it is, it's really fitting for where we are. And I hope that it is also representative of the songs that we sung. Yes. It was beautiful. Thanks for joining us. We'll be cutting back to the gala floor right now. And hear more from Roger Moore. Thank you, Tom. If anybody can pop a weasel, I bet you can. New York city is such a wonderful place with so many wonderful things to see. Don't you agree? Just a few blocks from here is one of the most world famous places concert halls, Carnegie Hall. A special place for performers as it is nearly perfect acoustics and provides an almost one-to-one intimacy between the performer and the lucky people who sit in the audience. I saw lucky audience members because Carnegie hall is like a magnet that has attracted the greatest performers from all over the world. But the nominee in this category actually go Carnegie Hall one better. Not only do they attract the best performers in the world, but through the magic of television and vision and execution of great production teams, serves as a kind of reverse magnet emanating back into the world's greatest performers of the greatest performances. That is all that it takes to get a nomination for the international Emmy for performing arts. And the nominees are. Performing arts. From Canada, "Done Giovanni Unmasked."
