Brett Ratner (director of Rush Hour movies) was a dear friend of Michael, one day Brett asked Michael some questions as a friendly interview, which he videotaped, it was not an interview with commercial purposes, just a friendly interview, i must advert you that on the first 2 minutes of the video you won't see anything but a black screen BUT after 2 minutes the image of Michael speaking wearing a cap, (very casual dressed) appears.

Take Two: The Footage You Were Never Meant To See (23-02-2003)Take Two: The Footage You Were Never Meant To See

In 2002, UK Journalist Martin Bashir, interviewed Michael Jackson over a period of 8 months. In February 2003, the finished product titled, 'Living With Michael Jackson' went to air around the world. The result is simply sickening. The interview made Michael out to be a child molester and it seemed that Mr. Bashir didn't care about the truth, all he cared about was entertainment.

Later that month, Michael made this documentary, which shows the uncut version of the Bashir interview which shows Mr. Bashir giving a different point of view. Watch this documentary, and then you be the judge.

Michael shows images of his own camera man Hamid Moslehi privately. He states that he was not "secretly" videotaping the interviews, as was popularly believed. He said Bashir knew they were also filming, but that Bashir probably didn't know that when he told his camera crew to cut, that he was still filming.

Living With Michael Jackson (03-02-2003)Living With Michael Jackson

'Living with Michael Jackson' is a Granada Television documentary, in which British journalist Martin Bashir interviewed Michael Jackson over a span of eight months, from May 2002 to January 2003. It was shown first in the United Kingdom on ITV (as a Tonight special) on February 3rd, 2003 and in the United States three days later on ABC, introduced by Barbara Walters.

Martin Bashir put the proposal to Jackson as a way to show the world the truth about him and "make nothing off limits." Jackson's decision to make the documentary was made on a suggestion by his close friend Uri Geller. It later emerged that Geller had turned down another 'bid' for the interview by journalist Louis Theroux. The interview was very unusual, as it had been extremely rare for Jackson to allow such access to his personal life, or to talk so freely about his traumatic childhood. Nevertheless, he did show some reserve when asked to discuss other personal issues, such as the plastic surgery he had allegedly had. The documentary contained much commentary by Bashir which was very critical and judgmental of Jackson.
