Michael Parkinson was a showbiz veteran on BBC 1 hosting his talk show. After his first few series he had already interviewed many a star from the time and had built up a fan base. People liked his interviewing technique where he would take a step back and let the guest (s) say what they wanted to say. Although Michael began to be unhappy, after his Saturday 9pm slot kept having to be changed because of the football. So ITV decided to make him an offer he couldn't refuse, he would be able to continue his famous talk show, at his normal slot yet on ITV1. He agreed. Parkinson has just finished his second ITV series, and has interviewed such stars as Lauren Bacall and Bob Geldoff. With rumours afoot that he could possibly be hosting a special interview with the latest royal couple Charles & Camilla, the show looks like it will continue to maintain the success it had done on BBC1.

Episode summary:

It's the end of an era as Michael Parkinson presents the last of three special editions bringing his 36 years as a TV chat show host to a close. Tonight though, there are no live guests - just Michael sharing his memories of his favourite encounters, many of which have reached legendary status - Muhammad Ali, Fred Astaire, Richard Burton and Orson Welles, to name but a few. Parkinson first became established as a regular fixture on Saturday nights over on the BBC, where his chat show began back in 1971, and throughout the years, he has interviewed thousands of guests, reading like a who's who of popular culture over the past four decades. Since his arrival at ITV in 2004 he has welcomed stars including Tom Cruise, Madonna, John Travolta, Prime Minister Tony Blair, Elton John, Ricky Gervais, Robbie Williams, Lauren Bacall, Paul McCartney, Bette Midler and Kate Winslet. What better way to pay tribute to Britain's number one talk show host than to wallow in the nostalgia of his favourite.
