Brokaw said the cultural bonds are very strong between England and the U.S. He noted our obsession with English entertainers, even citing Shakespeare in London and the King’s Speech winning the Oscar.
Brokaw did talk about the threat of terrorism. He said they had a plan … and knew what studio they would go to if something happened.
