He has stated previously that the most interesting person that he has ever interviewed was Muhammad Ali and regrets not having interviewed people like Frank Sinatra and Sir Donald Bradman.

Sir Michael Parkinson’s son will ask questions and Sir Michael will chat about all his experiences over the last 50 years to the audience, this will be helped by visuals from the Saturday evening.
