Join me as I take you on a tour of the most important cultural figures of the 20th and 21st century that I was lucky enough to meet. The Michael Parkinson Collection remembers the time I met the great stars of the golden period of Hollywood and then charted the rise of the modern superstars. It celebrates comic genius in all its forms and looks back to the times I basked in the charms of the world 5 most bewitching women and lauded the greatest sportsmen of their generation including that most singular man Muhammad Ali. But its far more than just a collection of amusing clips from famous people. It also includes eyewitness accounts of a generation who lived through, and fought in, two World Wars and the thoughts of poets, scientists and politicians. You'll find our who my all time favourite guests were plus what happened when I met Meg and what it's really like interviewing an Emu.
