William ShatnerHere’s an interesting LINK. A Google Video archived interview with William Shatner done for the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Foundation (yep, that’s the Emmys). “Video?!” you ask.

But it looks like it will air on Sunday Showcase at 10pm on Christmas Day and on Boxing Day at 4pm.
