Interspersed with comments from actors, producers, this series gives a glimpse inside Hollywood and, through the director's own words, how great movies are made. Meryl Streep was interviewed on the programme four times, talking about her directors Sydney Pollack in 1997, Clint Eastwood in 1999, Wes Craven in 1999 and Carl Franklin in 2005.
