Today at the age of 84 died Igor Fesunenko - writer and famous journalist. He is known for his brilliant reporting from Latin America. Later Fesunenko led "International panorama" and the program "the Camera looks into the world."
He always had a common language with the naked savages and ardent revolutionaries, and political elite. He interviewed Pele, Castro, Gorbachev.
Fesunenko: "I'm going to remember Jorge Amado, beauty Queens, carnival music composers. Long this will last. And my birthday will pass and we will remember".
He got into serious trouble when only quick reactions and mind was saved from death. He sought friendship c those who were a symbol of the planet. Thousands of journalists spent years waiting for the opportunity to at least come close to the great Pele. And Fesunenko caught him right on the street. And was not released.
Fesunenko: "We talked for over an hour and I made him sing the song. I sent the songs to "Horizon". Please, Pele, preview voice".
Singing Pele made a splash first in Moscow, then in Brazil. Igor experienced eye love, and the wrath of his superiors. Reduced the speech of Fidel Castro in front of the Ivanovo weavers from 40 to 20 minutes. Such freedom is not enjoyed Suslov. Fesunenko received a public dressing down for political callousness.
Fesunenko, "Because I was on night duty, came in the middle of the day. Everyone looks at me like I was some disease of doubtful suffer."
His first live television became his nightmare. And also is associated with Castro. 1974. Brezhnev's visit to Cuba. Everything is calculated to the second. All prior words. A tuple of all does not appear. Brezhnev, Castro was not 6 minutes. Igor Fesunenko in these 6 minutes, talked about Cuba, about the buildings around the square, on Havana, its people.
The ether was saved, and the nightmare Fesunenko became his success. "International panorama", "in the world Today" is a transfer, who told millions of Soviet people about life behind the iron curtain. Igor regretted one. His television biography could be 20 years long. It shortens the collapse of the Soviet Union and the expulsion of peers from television, of all media.
