Brian Winston, in his last book (*Claiming the real*, 1995), wrote that the
interview "becomes, after *Housing Problems*, a staple of the Griersonian
documentary" (p. 142). I had nevertheless the (false?) impression that the
Griersonian documentaries from the 30s to the end of the 40s rarely used the
interview. Does anyone have any example of such documentaries, especially
those before 1945? More generally, I would appreciate any comment or
reference on the beginning and development of this canonised documentary
form in the 40s and the 50s.
