I have an instructor looking for a series hosted by Peter Ustinov in which
he interviews various historical figures like Catherine the Great, Karl
Marx, Plato etc.. I don't know the series title, which makes it difficult
to search. Any leads appreciated!>>

Could your professor be thinking of Steve Allen's old PBS series, Meeting of
the Minds. He would get several historical figures together and have them
interact, with him acting as a moderator. Even though it was Steve Allen, it
was quite serious and I have fond memories of it. Unfortunately I've never
heard of it being released on video. But maybe this will give you a little
more to go on?

Good luck
