Parky’s Favourite Australians
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.
