frost off to sunnier climes?

So Al-Jazeera are in talks to sign David Frost to their TV station, eh? That'll be the weirdest thing I've heard today, then.

That is weird. It'd be good not to have him on our screens anyway.

They've been poaching people from all over including a Granada Tonight presenter and a producer from the same.

It's worth remembering that prior to the BBC launching its Arabic TV service, the beeb had a deal to train Al Jazeera journalists. All this came under the World Service so is funded (and approved) by the Foreign Office, not the license payer.
