Born 28 March 1935 – Sir Michael Parkinson

Sir Michael Parkinson (1935-2023) was a beloved British broadcaster and television personality best known for his long-running chat show, “Parkinson.” Born on March 28, 1935, in Cudworth, England, Parkinson’s career spanned over seven decades. He began as a journalist before transitioning to television, where his relaxed and engaging interviewing style made him a favourite among audiences.

Parkinson’s eponymous chat show, which ran from 1971 to 1982 and again from 1998 to 2007, became a platform for iconic interviews with the biggest celebrities and cultural figures of the time. From John Lennon and Muhammad Ali to Orson Welles and Madonna, Parkinson’s guests offered candid and insightful conversation, drawing both laughter and introspection from viewers. He was knighted in 2008 for his services to entertainment, and his legacy lives on as a testament to the power of thoughtful and engaging conversation. Sir Michael Parkinson passed away peacefully at his home in Bray, England, on August 16, 2023, at the age of 88.
