Great little interview, you should do more to your GMs and IMs coming there!
I also think he did a great job in explaining the semi-slav. In fact in the DVD he said he would give the knowledge to be confident in eventually playing the opening, and I think he delivered.
Maybe GM Nielsen could make a dvd of what he finds fascinating in chess, I'm sure that could be exciting to watch.
