TV journalism matriarch Barbara Walters will be hanging up her mic in May 2014.

Over her 52-year career, she’s interviewed every US President and First Lady since Richard and Pat Nixon, Hollywood icons, world leaders, dictators, Justin Bieber, and even a member of the tribe or two.

Here’s a look back at some of her top interviews.

1. Menachem Begin and Anwar Sadat

In 1977, Walters convinced Begin and Sadat to sit down together for their first joint interview ever. Watch her talk about how she managed it.

2. Steven Spielberg

Walters interviewed the celebrated director right after “Schindler’s List,” to talk about his Jewish heritage, and how he decided to make the film.

3. Barbra Streisand

4. Monica Lewinsky

This interview was watched by an astonishing 74 million viewers, a first in the history of news shows.

5. David and Victoria Beckham

Barbara Walters interviewed “the sexiest couple in the world” after they moved to the US in 2007.

6. Elizabeth Taylor.

That time Liz Taylor talked about sex, husbands, love, marriage…oh wait.
