Actor Michael Caine has recently published his auto-biography 'Blowing the Bloody Doors Off' - this has been abridged for BBC Radio (70 minutes) but does contain his reminiscences of the 1964 movie 'Zulu'. I think it really the first time he has talked about his role.

There was a TV documentary about him a couple of weeks ago and he did talk about it then.
Mostly about the first time we saw him and crossing the river and his unease with horses.
He sounded like a very intelligent bloke who knows his job.

There was a two-part BBC radio documentary on about a month ago where Michael Caine talks about his life and career (including Zulu). Itís currently available on BBC Sounds and certainly worth listening to while itís available.

I should have mentioned above that the show is called 'What I Know Now'.
