Michael Parkinson, 79 is a legendary radio and TV presence, in both the U.K. and Australia, who thankfully is on the road to recovery from his prostate cancer treatments. Michael discovered in July, through a routine exam, for men over 50, that he had cancer. His prognosis was deemed good, with a program of five sessions of radiotherapy, a week. Being the consummate elocutionist, he urged all men to under a prostate exam so that there aren't any devastating surprises later. Sir Michael began his recovery at he and his wife, Mary, home in Berkshire.

Having been knighted in 2008 for his broadcasting service, Mr. Parkinson has interviewed over 2,000 English and international celebrities since he began broadcasting in 1971. Sir Parky has put together a two disc collection of his international rise to fame, from humble Cudworth mining beginnings. The BBC has prepared for the release of a DVD, entitled “The Michael Parkinson Collection, which was released in December 2013.
 
Sir Michael has also identified in his book, “Parky's People,” the interesting and in-depth interviews with politicians, bygone stars and current super stars. Many of these celebrities included David Niven, Stephen Fry, Fred Astaire, and Ingrid Bergman. Current celebs include Elton John, Madonna, Tony Blair, Robin Williams, David Beckham, Muhammad Ali, and so many more. Yes, Parky is Sir Michael Parkinson's nickname, which he deplored in school, but which now, admiringly, his close friends and confidant's call him.

The current scuttlebutt involves comments made by Sir Michael Parkinson, regarding the format of The One Show and its hosts. He remarked that the hosts were an “agreeable frolic.” Sir Michael further remarked that programming today is nothing like the hard journalism presented in the 60's with hosts like the great David Frost or Alan Whicker.
 
He further commented that the kind of talk show presented by David Frost no longer exists, that good BBC journalism programmes are a vanishing breed. Taking exception to Michael Parkinson's remarks, the host of The One Show, Alex Jones, stated she was a fan of Sir Michael but was disappointed and shocked at his comments. Alex further compared the programme work that Sir Michael Parkinson designed and their format, as being similarly light. The sharp wit of Sir Michael was this news story's last comment.
