Arise Sir Michael Parkinson Summary

Arise Sir Michael Parkinson by Charlie Burden

Michael retired from his extraordinary showbiz career and it was only fitting he received the ultimate reward - a knighthood from the queen. It was an entirely suitable crowning moment to a remarkable career. This fascinating new biography traces the life of the miner's son from his childhood in Barnsley, where he had trials for Yorkshire County Cricket Club, to making it as an acclaimed media personality. It follows his entry into newspaper journalism and his national service, during which he served in Suez.Turning his hand to broadcasting, he was soon presenting shows including radio 4's "Desert Island Discs" and his legendary TV chat-show "Parkinson". The Yorkshireman's down to earth charm belied a nimble way with questioning that produced some of television's most engaging moments. Among over 2,000 interviews, those with Muhammad Ali, John Lennon, Princess Anne, David Beckham and - of - course Emu, have gone down as legendary. Over the years Michael has picked up countless industry accolades - including a BAFTA and Sony Radio Award - won listener and viewer popularity polls, received an honorary doctorate and been awarded a CBE. His adoring fans have lapped up his shows and delighted at his words in newspapers and books. "Arise sir Michael Parkinson" paints a complete portrait of Britain's most talented man.
