Living with Michael Jackson is a documentary, in which British journalist Martin Bashir interviewed Michael Jackson over a span of 8 months, from May 2002 to January 2003.Jackson felt betrayed by Bashir and complained that the film gives a distorted picture of his behaviour and conduct as a father.He claimed that Bashir, in the final version of his interview, used only that material which supported the negative view Bashir portrayed as holding towards Jackson. In response, Jackson and his personal cameraman released a rebuttal interview, which showed Bashir complimenting Jackson on his abilities as a father and grace under pressure, thus contradicting the journalist’s previous statements

In an attempt to repair his image following the Bashir interview, Jackson released a second interview, called Take Two: The Footage You Were Never Meant to See (also referred to as “the rebuttal video”).This was presented by Maury Povich and contains material which Bashir omitted.The footage that they show in this documentary was filmed by Hamid Moslehi privately. He states that he was not “secretly” videotaping the interviews, as was popularly believed. He said Martin 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.
