Prince Charles tribute to nervous Australian interviewer

Almost four decades after one of the most disastrous interviews in Australian television history, Prince Charles has recorded his own tribute to the man who was overcome by nerves while attempting to question him.

Host of Australian music show Countdown Ian "Molly" Meldrum could not calm his jitters when he met the prince in 1977.

In the video to mark Countdown's 40th anniversary, Prince Charles imitates Mr Meldrum's professional meltdown.

Peter Hunt reports.
