A Night in with Sir Michael Parkinson

12th Dec 7PM AEDT (on demand 48 hours)

Like Father, Like Son is the most personal book that Sir Michael Parkinson has ever written.  For the first time, he attempts to explore where his father came from and what shaped him in his life before Sir Michael was even a twinkling in his Father’s eye. 

Like Father, Like Son is a tender tribute to a wonderful man, an attempt to understand the grip of grief and the emotional minefield that is the relationship between a father and a son. It is at its heart a love letter from me and every part of my family lucky enough to have known John William Parkinson.

In conversation with each other and with the aid of photos from the family archive as well as footage from the Parkinson show which helped inform and inspire the book,  Sir Michael and Mike will give their individual viewpoints on this most remarkable of men as well as examine their own  relationship and how they have fared in their own Father and son story

  • Like Father, Like Son - Michael Parkinson

    Co-written with his son Mike, this affectionate and revealing memoir explores the influences which shaped John William, Michael and succeeding generations of Parkinsons. The journey leads them from the depths of a Yorkshire coal mine, via the chapel, pub and picture-house, to a spot behind the bowler's arm at Lord's and the sands at Scarborough. While Like Father, Like Son conveys a powerful sense of time and place, it is wit, insight and, above all, enduring love which shine through its pages.
