Parky's back but not as you know it!
The Parkinson show will be brought back to life but with a neat twist. This time the Grand Master has handed his talking stick to his youngest son, Mike Parkinson. Fresh from a sell-out tour of their show An Evening with Sir Michael Parkinson, father and son have been keen to bring back the kind of talk show missing from our current media landscape for too long. Having honed his skills interviewing his father on tour, Parkinson is ready to step up to the plate and interview talented practitioners from every branch of the arts.
13 March: Barrie Rutter
Outspoken and bristling with honest opinion, this will be a fascinating interview with a complex but visionary man. Rutter set up the Northern Broadsides company in 1992, and 25 years later he's still producing ground breaking productions.
11 April: Peter Hamlyn
One of the world's leading neuro surgeons, Hamlyn is best known as the man who saved boxer Michael Watson's life after he was brutally knocked out by Chris Eubank. Since then he has been instrumental in ensuring all high risk sports have adequate and safe medical provision. A fascinating man, fascinated by the thing that makes us human.
22 May: Jay Rayner
A modern day Renaissance man; Rayner is a journalist, food critic, writer, broadcaster and jazz musician. A guaranteed good night out as the whole range of his talents will be on display.
