Parky’s Favourite Aus­tralians

Isis Town and Country - - Television -

Wed­nes­day, Ten, 7.30pm

Dap­per English­man Sir Michael Parkin­son (right) has of­ten been hailed as one of the best talk show hosts of all time. He’s had a few dis­as­ters (who can for­get the awk­ward Meg Ryan in­ter­view), but for the most part, the friendly gent makes stars com­fort­able enough to open up, and in­deed some­times even bare their soul, like our very own swim­ming cham­pion Ian Thorpe did last year when he re­vealed he was gay. In tonight’s spe­cial show, Parky’s Favourite Aus­tralians, we look back at high­lights from the many in­ter­views he has con­ducted with fa­mous Aus­tralians such as Sir Robert Help­mann, Sir Les Pat­ter­son and Cliff Young. It’s not to be missed.
