PARKIE’S BACK – MAYBE? (article first published : 2008-05-18)

Due to be screened on M-Net on May 23 at 22h25 – unless the schedule pushes him forward yet again – will be ever popular chat show host Michael Parkinson – now Sir Michael Parkinson since the Queen’s 2008 New Year's Honours List - in Parkinson VII

The acclaimed interviewer – invariably sporting a splendid tie - introduces another exciting array of international movie stars and music performers and exhibits his exemplary interviewing skills in this fascinating, informative and often highly amusing programme. Relaxed, well groomed and attentive to his guests' feelings, Parkie, as he's known in Britain, is loved by celebrities and the public alike.

His career as talk show host, spanning more than 30 years, has afforded him awesome connections with the famous and the infamous and some of his interviews have become legendary. Priding himself on his Yorkshireman's gift of the gab, he made his debut as host of the Parkinson show in 1971. Broadcast every Saturday night, the show became an institution and set the standard for all other television chat show hosts to meet.
