An entertainment icon on living a life of meaning | Norman Lear

Eric Hirshberg: So I assume that Norman doesn’t need much of an introduction, but TED’s audience is global, it’s diverse, so I’ve been tasked with starting with his bio, which could easily take up the entire 18 minutes.

Translator: Denise RQ Reviewer: Jim Taylor (Piano music) Sometimes, ideas come at most unlikely times. I had that idea on the plane. A Paris-Tokyo flight, a 12-hour flight; it’s very long.
