Recorded interviews don't go back too far. Movietone News, shown in theaters before the feature, ran from 1928 to 1963, but focused on hard news mostly, though occasionally veered off toward lighter fare, like Bess Truman trying and failing to launch a destroyer, the collapse of Galloping Gertie, or an odd Parisian restaurant, where the owner placed chicken food in his mouth, and fed the birds. Zsa Zsa got some play when she dated a Dominican racecar driver (can't think of his name). Also former King Farouk of Egypt got some footage during his banishment. A FLW interview would hardly have qualified. All filmed news programming prior to 1928 was silent, and that too would have been beyond FLW's reach.

And radio was popular in the 1930s...did he do any local or national radio interviews? Granted, those may not have survived. Someone did record the Saturday chats with apprentices on a reel to reel machine, but that may only have started in the 50s.
He received a gold medal from the RIBA in 1941. He traveled to London. Haven't we heard his speech there ?
