In About Fathers and Sons, the presenter explores the relationship between a father and a son. One of the pair is famous in politics, the arts, sports or media.
These are no ordinary relationships that the presenter is looking for (The Dutch presenter is writer and enfant terrible Hugo Borst). There’s always something amiss in this relationship. Maybe father and son have outgrown each other. Perhaps they’ve been feuding and have lost touch. It could be that family pressure has stressed out their relationship….
Direct, revealing, and a little raw, the host of this show unravels the father-son relationship. By the show’s end, both parties are together, their stories on the table, though much is usually unsaid. By pushing, bullying and prodding, the host gets down to the true nature of this complex, fascinating relationship.
