CH is not the worst interviewer I've heard and there's also some good humor in this interview.

That was absolutely charming. You can actually hear CH *giggling*.

Hitchens's technique was very satisfying. He posed questions as if tossing kindling on an already burgeoning flicker, then stood back and let the flames roar; the antithesis of, say, Charlie Rose, who essentially interviews himself, and occasionally takes a breath into which rift his guest is able to shoehorn a few syllables.
