The chat show legend once described mercurial footballer George Best as being ‘like the fifth Beatle…a pop idol of his time’. In conversation with his son, Mike, and accompanied by classic clips from the Parkinson archive, he’ll be recalling a lifetime's career, his love of cricket (Yorkshire of course) and football, and his numerous encounters with Best and the unique friendship that developed, an extraordinary and lasting bond that weathered Best’s tumultuous life.

'Parky' is one of the most successful journalists of his generation with a sports column for The Sunday Times for fifteen years. He's also one of the UK's most highly-respected TV and radio presenters - his long-running chat show Parkinson was hugely popular for many years - and his love of cricket is legendary.
