My impression is the same as Denis Simard's about documentary interviews.
HOUSING PROBLEMS was unique; I can think of no documentary interview
before the journalistic tv interview.  Part of this comes from the
technical difficulties of recording live sound before the introduction
of light weight cameras and tape recording.  Both innovations date from
about the 'fifties.
