I'm looking for strategies and tips you use to interrupt, re-direct and control interviews with chatty folk.

In structured interviews where time is important, I find I am terrible at controlling the flow of the interview with chatty participants. I am hesitant to appear rude or damage rapport, so I try not to interrupt even when I am frustrated and running behind. How can I interrupt people in a nice way, and gain more control over the interview flow?
