27.11.2017 Town Hall Birmingham: An evening with Sir Michael Parkinson

His youngest son Michael Jr in conversation with the epic broadcaster Michael Parkinson, who at the age of 82, is still a charismatic figure.

Aided by clips from the iconic TV show ‘Parkinson’ the evening focused very much on the show itself and the many celebrities that came and went during its run from 1971 to 1982 and 1998 to 2007 respectively but also covers some personal stories about his upbringing and his experiences as a broadcaster with all the ups and downs this brings.

Although all clips were from the ‘The Best of Parkinson’ DVD which has been released some years ago, it was still lovely to hear him talk about towering figures like Orson Welles or his duet with Bing Crosby.

A truly enjoyable evening
