Richard Harris also produced many of Koppel’s big interviews of the past 30 years, including Nelson Mandela after his release from prison, Gary Hart’s first interview after his relationship with Donna Rice was revealed and Oliver North following the Iran-Contra affair. Mr. Harris was also Senior Producer of the PBS documentary “Guns in America” following the 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
